Pros: "I flew from Bali to Doha and then Doha to Dulles after an 8 hour layover. Both flights operated a Boeing 777. The planes were spotlessly clean both flights. The menu choices were amazing and the wine selections were very good. What made the difference was the attentiveness of the cabin crew. I would particularly like to commend the purser and the flight attendants on flight 707 DOH-IAD for their assistance and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty"
Cons: "Flight 707 was supposed to have the new Qsuites in Business Class, so it was disappointing that without prior notice the airline switched to an aircraft with normal (but quite good) business class seating.

Despite our delay in arriving at the airport (check in was done online in advance), the flight attendants accepted us for the trip. The whole process was extremely efficient, there was no delay in take off time and the suitcases arrived all on time to our destination. I really appreciated their help: we did have a medical emergency 3 hours prior to our arrival to the airport, hence the delay.."
Cons: "Everything went smoothly, I had no bad experience with this flight.."

Cons: "I am a very experienced international traveler with approximately 25 countries visited and many of them multiple times. This flight set my new benchmark for a international coach flight. Staff were professional, friendly and accommodating. Great leg room and entertainment. Even the in flight meal and snacks were good. I was not looking forward to my domestic connection with Delta. Unfortunately, Delta met my anticipated expectation. US based carriers could learn a lot from Lufthansa."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "More comfortable seating."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good food served by this airline"
Cons: "The woman seated next to me had the worst body odor ever and this was a 10 hour flight-nearly brought me to hurl. She was the mother of s flight attendant as well, and was constantly brought amenities from the first class cabin. Really not appropriate for the rest of us in premium economy"

Pros: "Great crew"

Cons: "The boarding gate has too little space and was chaos."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on the flight from Frankfort to Athens. The Lost Luggage staff was very helpful, but the process took a long, long time. Then when my luggage arrived the next morning, no one was staffing the Gold kiosk, so it took another hour and a half to get my luggage. (We had received an email saying that the luggage would be available at 7:30; no one was there to provide it to us)"
Pros: "Same as above same as a bove"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "All flights cancelled. Stuck overnight."
Pros: "The engagement of the crew. The coffee and cake. The attendant offered to help me with my bag to the door of the aircraft. The same attendant remembered to give me coffee later and provided the stir stick just as I was able ask for one. I felt cared for."
Cons: "They ran out of the protein meal selections.e.g. Chicken I think. Pasta with sauce and one small cube of cheese with a little salad does not qualify as a balanced mealThe attendant tried to make up for it by giving me more cheese blocks."
Pros: "The crew was really good. The food was much better than my cross the Atlantic flight. There wasn’t any entertainment so I am not sure how to rate it."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is not very good. Why does a passenger who has cleared security in the US have to do it again in Frankfurt? It is an unnecessary requirement that causes some passengers to miss their connecting flight. I will give them a pass on clearing immigration But going thru security....no."
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing and the overall experience was great."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "1 hour delay again"
Cons: "The flight was delayed . When we arrived in Frankfurt, there was a quie of 200m . After waiting 10 minutes, they asked us to go to other passport control . We had to walk onother 10 minutes to get there ."

Cons: "The food on Lufthansa has definitely slipped since the last time I flew them a couple of years ago. The main courses are just plain bad. Everything else is good"
Pros: "NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "A male flight attendance made me feel uncomfortable. I sat in empty sit with number 3 instead of 4 and he asked me to check my number on my boarding pass. WIth an extremely directive and dictating tone in his voice he told me YOU SHOULD GO AND SIT to what your ticket says. It is VERY important to be sited, although the seats are available you should be sited where your boarding pass directs you to be."
Cons: "I realized that some people of their crew are extremely insane! I have never had an issue like this, with DELTA or AIR FRANCE, or KLM, or NORWEGIAN, or SAS If it was only one persona that I had to deal with, which it was on my flight from NY to Munich I would say , it was coincidence . One person is not a statistical point and accuse the whole Company. But this was repeated on my second flight from Munich to Athens. Then I said, this is not coincidence, it is a pattern that is repeated and not professional . NEVER AGAIN WITH LUFTHANSA is my decision and my recommendation."
Cons: "Wheelchair assistance did not arrive at gate."
Pros: "The crew was extremely responsive, inviting, and constantly walking about the cabin to see if passengers needed juice or water. The boarding, for such a large flight, was pretty smooth."
Cons: "The small screens for entertainment need to be updated. It took mine a few minutes into the flight before I could access all of the entertainment options. Additionally, the touchscreen was very difficult to navigate, as it jumped between non-responsive and too sensitive throughout the flight. Furthermore, the headphone jack should be updated, so that passengers can use their own headphones without an adapter. The headphone audio setup at my seat did not work very well."
Cons: "They don’t have order while boarding No space for the carry on- they didn’t ask to check them for free."
Cons: "All flights in Frankfurt boarded via jet bridge. Flight to Greece boarded via a bus. Freezing weather in Frankfurt. Are Germans prejudiced to Greek passengers?"
Pros: "The crew was more helpful than the transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My seat. It was right behind the first class and as the crew rushed to serve them, they threw the separating curtain at my face as I was sitting on the corridor. It was so frequent I couldn't sleep and the passanger did the same."
Cons: "Missed my connection due to airline delay and was put on a flight 12 hours later"
Pros: "On all my flights everything was on time and ready to go. Crew was super helpful and friendly. Ready great service and constant visual of crew for us if we needed them. Was not expecting to be fed sooo much on my flights which was awesome! Seats were comfortable, pillow and blanket were a nice accommodation as well! The entertainment was awesome - made 8 hours quickly disappear! Will definitely fly with Lufthansa again when I go overseas!"
Pros: "Flight attendants we good"
Cons: "Business class seats were just regular seats without a 3rd person. Legroom bad and seats narrow. Not good value b"
Pros: "The crew - seemed very amenable and pleasant on this flight. One helped me move to effectively solve the acute posture problem."
Cons: "The seat - window by request, but it was in front of an emergency exit The seat - is jammed in - very tight - could not put it back to relax, and could not relax my left side by the window. My left shoulder and arm and left hip started hurting - couldn't sleep - took 2 days to get rid of the numbness in my arm. I asked to move, and it became obvious that there were many empty seats in the next section behind. I moved, and my comfort improved. Why was I given such a posture killer - especially on such a very long flight with seats to spare?"

Pros: "The crew was very welcoming and attentive."
Cons: "That the price of the ticket dropped from when I originally purchased it by $500 and when I called for a refund of the difference I was told it could not be done. I also didn't like that we had to pay an additional cost for a seat selection. Selecting seats should be included."
Pros: "Loved the staff, very nice! The food options were good & I appreciated the veggie options. Desert could be optional since I never eat it. Oh & the beverage cart with all the options is the absolute BEST."

Cons: "Customer Service is Dead with British Airways!!! I will make every effort not to fly with BA again"
Cons: "Crew could have reprimanded people not wearing their masks or not covering their noses. The airline could have kept middle seats open to instill more confidence in flying."

Cons: "We had to beg for one cup of water on a 3 & 1/2 flight. Very poor customer service."

Cons: "Having to fly, but sometimes if happens."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "All baggage lost. Wasn't put on the plane because they didn't have enough containers. Ground crew at London was courteous. Luggage had to be sent on to the US the next day. No free bags on this flight so all of the luggage lost had been paid for piece by piece. No free drink service; even a soda had to be paid for. No food, of course. Originating 10hr flight from Los Angeles to London was also uncomfortable, with small, packed coach seats, no air nozzles and poor headset connectors. I was very happy to get back on American Airlines for my return to Los Angeles. Wouldn't use BA again."
Pros: "Somehow we board first than everyone else. It left and arrived on time. Friendly service."
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival. Courteous efficient crew, both on land and in the air."
Cons: "My main gripe is that if you want a plain cup of coffee or a bottle of water, you are charged for it and can pay only with a credit card, but only if that card is chip and pin, and my US card isn't. Yes, it is high time that the US move into the current millennium and get chip and pin cards, but that is beside the point. I also flew BA from London to Seattle (part of same trip) and the on-board meal & drink service was PHENOMENAL - the best I have had on an airline in years, and I did not get charged for anything, including alcoholic beverages. How can this be the same airline?"
Pros: "Usual efficient BA"
Cons: "Had to take an emergency trip to London. The cost of the ticket for an hour flight was outrageous. $900 US was highway robbery."
Pros: "Not much, flights were on time is the only positive"
Cons: "Turbulence (other airlines went out of their way to avoid it, by BA didn’t seem to care), BA has got rid of in flight services - so what am I paying so much for? - and made me exit and re-enter through security despite the fact that I’d checked in for a connecting flight. Overall not a positive experience and don’t think I’ll be rushing to fly with them again."
Cons: "For some reason we were boarded and ready to go and only then did they think to send for a de-icer. A 40 minute delay on a 1 hour flight. At the other end we then had to wait 20 mins to get off."
Pros: "I got there. It was safe."
Cons: "Entertainment system shut off."
Pros: "The staff in airplane was okay"
Cons: "The boarding staff are very rude"
Pros: "Service and price"

Pros: "Terminal 5"
Cons: "Disgusted that they wanted to charger £11 pp to change seat at check-in 24hrs prior to the flight!"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Is this really the British Airways business class within Europe? What a disappointment. Felt like I was in economy except the only difference was I got my drink served in glass rather than plastic. Why don't you get some tips from Emirates considering from Abu Dhabi to Doha you had 10"+ tvs infront of you, tons of leg room and actually good food offerings."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Boarding seemed simple, no zones were called except for priority, we just all boarded and it seemed to go quickly and smoothly. BA is all pay onboard for any food or drinks."

Pros: "Efficient and on time"
Cons: "Movie started too late so there wasn't time to finish"

Cons: "Delayed flight. Only accept credit cards on board."
Cons: "M&S Food menu is limited as it is - they then also run out of most items and couldnt serve passengers on a 5 hour flight.."
Pros: "The payment system was down so it was painful and slow"
Cons: "Everyone was terrible"
Cons: "Delayed flight, once on board the aircraft, further delays on the ground (at Glasgow) made up time in the air landed (not too far from our original landing time) only to be told we’re now being held on the ground (at Gatwick for at least another 20 minutes!) I flew with BA this morning and rated them excellent for everything! EJ you need to up your game!"
Pros: "Crew was just ok nothing more nothing less.. The general service of easy jet its better for me not operate..."

Cons: "It was one of the best flights ive been on and would recommend easyjet."
Pros: "The fare was cheap."
Cons: "The seats are painfully small for a long-haul flight and Norwegian charges for EVERYTHING on board. Seriously not even free water."
Pros: "quick check in information given in good time regular messages about potential disruption friendly staff"
Cons: "some times cabin staff were a bit too business-like al few people skills would be good"
Cons: "Excellent flight, only issue was flight information from Captain was spoken too fast and it was hard to understand what was said...please ask them to slow down their speech on the in flight announcements, cabin staff were fine"
Pros: "Am very upset with how I got treated"
Cons: "Paid GBP 26.99 to be able to take with me my carry-on that was refused by a groundstaff standing outside and informing me she determined what would happen. Bad bad experience and paying GBP 26,99 for nothing is a real shame"
Pros: "Crew were polite and efficient. Pilots got us there effectively. We left on time and arrived early. All good."
Cons: "Instant coffee!"
Pros: "Crew was informative and tried to help as much as possible"
Cons: "Extended almost 2 hours stuck in a place with a defective AC sensors. Now I understand these things happen. Also it’s admirable the powers that be would rather fix than fly with a questionable part. But shouldn’t this be a maintenance issue and not a wait till it’s broke thing. 3 hours lost is 3 hours lost"
Pros: "All excellent"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Called to gate urgently then stood there for 30 mins. Then sat on runway for 90 mins waiting a slot."
Cons: "40 min departure delay due to Stanstead airport unable to allocate the usual landing slot before we left Glasgow."
Cons: "Easyjet just takes no legroom to the next level. I guess you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Despite an hour's delay on the runway (not easyJet's fault) and some turbulence, we still arrived with time to spare for our onward travel, so the pilot must have made up some lost time."
Cons: "The wait on the runway - French Air Traffic Control strike."
Cons: "I missed this flight because my Norwegian flight from Oakland to Gatwick was delayed"
Pros: "nothing but rude"
Cons: "I prepaid to check my 2 roller bags and no one was at the drop off so they charged me TWICE the crazy expensive fee to check it at the gate while others with guitars and duffle bags were allowed on. Our bags would have fit in the overheads."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Long lines, long delay, non comfortable seats, no entertainment"
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed from 2040 to 2230"
Pros: "In flight entertainment that you don't have to pay for... Glad europe is finally catching up with North America"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess the aircraft was waiting for a stand for 10 minutes in Paris and boarding was not smooth. Over an hour late and I'm told this is a regular thing"
Pros: "Easy flight conditions"
Cons: "Limited space for long legs"
Pros: "It's easyjet so no expectations really"
Cons: "More than 60 min delay!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, flight was smooth, captain kept us updated throughout the flight, cabin crew was friendly and polite."
Pros: "Super Easy for a traveler with simple expectations."
Pros: "Good flight to Athens, nothing to complain about. Flight was on time. Really nice view of the coast on approach."
Cons: "Delayed over an hour, no hand wash in the lavatory"
Pros: "seats were clean and comfortable crew very friendly"
Cons: "It was not clear how the different systems worked for carry on baggage, etc. Boarding is awful as you do not know your gate until the last minute, so if you have questions about your flight you don't know where to go to ask, and then everyone crowds into a queue prior to boarding because they've just leaned where to go, shoving people out of the way. They charge ridiculous amounts of money for everything, so a reasonable fare is really not a good fare at all at the end of the day. I would absolutely NOT recommend this airline to anyone who is from out of country or doesn't travel 20+ times a year as they would not be able to navigate this airline's manipulations to extort extra money out of people."
Pros: "Staff were very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great but it was reasonably priced to not the end of the world"
Cons: "It was appalling. 2 hour delay. Good reminder why I never fly them usually."
Pros: "The crew and the pilot were exceptionally kind and accommodating- I got to see the inside of a cockpit!"
Cons: "A 1 1/2hr delay with no explanation (in fact, the check in agent told me there was a 20m delay when she obviously knew very well it would be an hour+ since the plane left Gatwick an hour+ behind schedule). Then being herded like cows onto the plane only to discover we'd have to wait another 1 1/2 hrs on the tarmac so that if we could get an earlier departure time we could take it and EasyJet wouldn't have to refund our tickets for wasting 4hrs of our lives."
Pros: "See above, but was otherwise fine"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Spacious seats for an airplane! And the takeoff and landing were so smooth."
Cons: "Being from the US, we weren't familiar with the boarding process (no gate # until almost time)- but that was our challenge, not anyone else's. we really enjoyed flying Easyjet."
Pros: "Sufficient service quick boarding and de-boarding. Captain kept us well informed"
Cons: "Needs a little updating"
Pros: "The stewards did a great job"
Cons: "That we had to wait on the plane for an hour on the Tarmac before taking off ."
Pros: "Got from A to B, no fuss about bag sizes - symptomatic of them needing us to board quickly perhaps?"
Cons: "1.5 Hours late; a typical delay with easyJet No real apologies offer of refreshment vouchers, although there was regular updates provided Pilot interrupted sleeping cabin halfway through - at about midnight - with long update On Departure and arrival plane was located away from gate and the bus journey seemed to take an eternity - in Edinburgh in particular"
Cons: "Failing to check in before getting to the airport will result in them selling your already bought ticket to someone else. This happened to me and had to by a one-way ticket with British Airways at double the cost of the original return ticket from EasyAir. Did not even try to help."
Cons: "2 hours to get to the aeroplane. 1 hour in easyJet queue. 1 hour in security. Only just made the flight. People should be fired for this continued incompetence and poor customer service."
Pros: "Short, quick flight that saved me a lot o time"
Cons: "Queuing on a stairwell in Belfast"
Pros: "Departed punctually in both directions. Just a 25 minute flight so there's not much more I can say."
Pros: "We had 2 hours and 45 mins delay due to technical issues as they had to change 3 aircrafts before we start boarding..."
Pros: "Staff and crew were accommodating and nice."
Cons: "When we arrived at the airport the departures monitor did not list our flight for 10:15! They had another flight that was listed for 10:55. Ended up going to 3 different gates to finally find 2 agents that then walked us to the final gate. We then ended up waiting for another 30 minutes before boarding a bus that drove us 10 minutes to a completely different part of the airport where our plane was waiting. We then waited another 45 before we took off. Staff was very nice and could tell they were stressed but at least they didn't make it any worse."
Pros: "Comfortable and arrived on time."
Cons: "Was told I had to check my international standard carry on suitcase because the flight was apparently completely full, really it was maybe 2/3 full. Waiting in the airport the screens showed to flight as delayed and still waiting for a gate. I bought I coffee and suddenly it was back to on time and final call without any notice. Flight crew made me put my very small backpack and even my tiny purse, which easily fit in the pocket in front of me, in the overhead storage. All little things, but overall, an annoying experience."
Pros: "Generally smooth check-in process, easy to get through airport and security, and boarding was painless."
Cons: "Disembarking required a bus to the main terminal - crowded and late"
Pros: "The flight was quick and easy."
Cons: "When checking in we paid for baggage and on our flight there we only paid about $40 but on the flight back the man charged us double and we're not sure why."
