Very poor choices for movie and TV. Husband was searched twice for same flight, once at security and once at the gate. At the gate they were "randomly" pulling people, young teenagers, my husband a disabled senior with a cane, all whites that we saw and we were near the end to board. One Muslim fully covered woman with 4 bags walked right on. Really!

There was no issues boarding the plane and we all got on the plane pretty quickly, the crew was really friendly too!

Entertainment was OK but you would expect if you’re watching a TV program that he while series would be available not just random series and episodes (eg series 3 episode 11) I would also say that the food that was served was OK but portions very small. Also one course was finger sandwiches but if you don’t eat egg or cheese then it isn’t great!

The crew was very friendly.

I think it is outrageous to cut down on services on a long haul flight like this - no blankets or pillows, and having to pay extra for entertainment has Ryan-air- style quality and is not what I would expect on long haul flights with condor. I understand trying to incentivise booking premium economy, but there is definitely a higher level of quality and service with other airlines in economy class at competitive prices.

I missed my flight from Manchester to Munich as Easy Jets does not pay for luggage transfer fee.. I was not aware that I had to pick up my luggage upon arrival to Manchester and needed to recheck it again. Kayak should require luggage transfer all international carriers. If they do not resolve this issue I would not purchase a ticket through kayak.

The crew was friendly and I really enjoyed the tea snacks that was served later in the flight. I really enjoyed that the plane had tablet type devices on the back of each chair. They also had a range of bunch of contemporary large budget movies that you could select.

The boarding process took a little longer than I would have expected but I don't know if this is the airline's fault or other circumstances with the airport. They ran out of the chicken option and didn't have another non-red meat alternative. This was fine only because I happened to pick up a sandwich prior to boarding.

The online entertainment has a nice variety of interesting shows, including documentaries. My seat was comfortable with good leg room, but only because I got lucky when I asked for an exit row seat while checking in. The regular economy seats are extremely narrow and uncomfortable with almost no leg room (and I am only average in heigh). Taller people sitting in regular aisle seats are hanging their legs out into the aisle throughout the flight because they have to for any kind of reasonable comfort.

Somehow the airline should tell passengers that they are going to have to go through a(mother) strict security process before getting on the plane in Frankfurt to the U.S. We all stood in line for close to an hour in a very hot area of the airport to go through full-on security - water gets thrown out, shoes off, laptops out - the whole works, again. I had already gone through this kind of security in Vienna for the Vienna-Frankfurt leg of my trip. I had no idea this was going to be required and had planned to use my time in Frankfurt to relax and get something to eat. Instead it was spent standing in a surprise security line that moved extremely slowly. Not a fun way to spend the time before getting on an 11-hour flight. If they are going to require that security they should have many more lines available so that it moves at a reasonable pace.

Crew was courteous and always on top of all passenger's requests. When I asked for a special request they did the absolute best to accommodate me and my girlfriend on our long 10.5 hour flight.

Manchester (and London) airport was absolutely terrible. the floors were filthy, it was so crowded that the majority of people at the gate had to sit on the floor due to lack of chairs, the were in total only 2 food places we could find, excuse my language, but it was just a shitshow. Almost EVERY flight on the list was delayed, including ours by 30 mins. This may not be very long but can get quite annoying when you cant sit in any chairs at the gate and the floors look like somebody puked on them. Then, after boarding, our captain let us know about the port's technical difficulty of having parked our wide body plane in a narrow body space (or something similar to that) which delayed us even further. I will fly with Thomas Cook again but I WILL pay the extra charge to avoid UK and its airports from now on. That was terrible. But the flight crew couldn't do anything against that so I understand.

Traveled over 10 hours between Los Angeles and Manchester. Overall, a great experience. Plenty of leg room, a good selection of movies, TV shows and music to pass the time and friendly staff made this a very pleasant trip,

Carry on baggage is also weighed at check-in. They clearly state a 6 Kg limit on their web site and this is adhered to. I had a 10 Kg carry on and had to check it in, so make sure you are aware of this when packing.
