Pros: "Crew was very good"
Cons: "Delay was too much"
Pros: "I enjoy flying jetblue, I am usually comfortable and i is a pleasant experience. The last two times I have flown, the flight has been delayed by at least an hour and a half and there has been something wrong with the sound to the movies. This flight my movie was staticky and had to jiggle my headphones for it to work although sometimes it still happened. My seat this last flight also was broken and I was unable to put my seat back which caused some back discomfort."
Cons: "I would choose jetblue again because of the other wonderful experiences I have had with you. The staff are usually very professional and courteous and the comfort is usually better than anyone else. Thanks."
Pros: "Everything went well no problems and arrived early."
Pros: "Very efficient. Only 30 minutes late despite severe snow storm day before. Free water and Terra Chips were nice. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I hate no text alerts for the final return flights. Again this Sucks big time. They don't care enough about having their passengers well being after a long flight. The people in charged with IT should be fired. If you don't care to provide the same level of service as everyone else you should not be in the business."
Pros: "Paid more for a flight we would not have to get off of in SJU. They made us get off for no reason. 5h with two kids. All they had was chips."

Pros: "I liked the kind employees and snacks on the plane."
Cons: "The 2 hr delay"
Pros: "The boarding was very quick and easy, the crew were very pleasant and helpful, and I felt safe the entire flight. We arrived 30 minutes early!"
Cons: "I wish there was more snack selection and a little more room in the sides (this I understand can’t be helped, but that is just my opinion). Other forms of entertainment, such as magazines or newspapers, even if outdated, would be a nice alternative for those who do not wish to purchase headphones."
Cons: "Aer Lingus, Did not operate this particular Flight . Equip Problems"
Pros: "Flight arrived early"
Cons: "My family of 5 was assigned all separate middle seats. Entertainment was abundant, but somehow it wasn't so good."

Pros: "Sorry but there was nothing to complain about. No bitchin here."
Pros: "The crew are ok"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that we get delayed by over 4 hours! I was in the hotel and got the email and it said still go to the airport and follow the times on 8:59am flying time even though you have been delayed just incase so I spent 3 hours extra when u could have been in the hotel room and that's it all you get is a sorry. Disappointed, no explanation nothing"
Cons: "Allianz insurance screwed up my flight causing me to miss my flight and now I can not be refunded for a mistake that the Allianz and vayama made. Still waiting to hear back from kayak about refunds or credits or something."
Cons: "Grossly delayed"
Cons: "JetBlue placed my luggage on the wrong plane. I had to wait 2 extra hours at baggage claim for another flight to arrive with my luggage."

Pros: "Great crew, good in-flight movies. Good food."
Cons: "Wifi connectivity was poor for most of the flight. Plane was very hot it was difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Entertainment and helpful staff"
Cons: "Had worst seat on plane on outward because I didn't know I could pick a seat free of charge before online checkin This could be a lack of communication on Kayak/Last Minute.com as opposed to Virgin"
Pros: "The seats reclined at a good pitch and were very comfortable. The crew were friendly and service was good."
Cons: "I understand that on the night flight, they were trying to keep the lights up for dinner service, but it prevented my toddler from being able to sleep and thus made for a difficult rest of the journey."
Pros: "Most of it was of a reasonable standard."
Cons: "Plane was full"
Pros: "Crew were great! Neck cushions on chair aren’t adjustable and not comfortable."
Pros: "The crew where awesome and catered to every need and requirement."
Cons: "need to have a slightly deeper seat pitch in premium economy to allow people out without having to wake each other up. Especially on night flights."
Pros: "The crew was maybe average, that was still the best point."
Cons: "Extremely tight space. The food was almost inedible. Awful."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive, they tried hard to help me with comfort, drinks etc. I didnt have food as it was so good in the Virgin Clubhouse!"
Cons: "The bed! When you flip it flat its rock hard, and the matress they provide is useless! Need foam matress to really make it more comfotable. If the seat reclined another few inches i wouldnt bother flipping it."
Pros: "I like the professional approach of the airline and the staff. Seats are really comfortable and i did not need my sleeping pillow at all as the headrest of my seat was already so comfortable."
Cons: "There is not much which i did not like about this airline. Just like other airlines, now have started feeling that Economy class travellers are being approached with bit biased approach in hospitality though they have major contribution in meeting flight running expenses. All airlines should start considering this fact and improve the overall approach."
Pros: "The flight itself was good! The one from London to Delhi was better than from JFK to London"
Cons: "I wasn’t told about my baggage were being delivered through different airlines the other day!"
Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"
Cons: "I didn't like anything. I didn't like the communication between Virgin Atlantic with travelers, communication between Virgin Atlantic and hotel Ramada. Everything was really poorly."
Pros: "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Cons: "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"
Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."
Cons: "Thé food was rather stodgy overall."
Pros: "Top glass airline"
Cons: "I lake food and good service crew"
Pros: "Although we were badly delayed the cabin service was excellent in every way. Good meal , cheerful staff and well turned out."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that my seat was between 2 small children that belonged to a family sitting behind me .It was ridiculous to put a stranger on a 10 hour flight with a 3yrar old on one side and a 5 year old on the other"
Pros: "Staff on this flight were excellent"
Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience was horrible."
Cons: "I didn't make it to Siem Reap because the first leg of the trip from IAD to London was cancelled by Virgin Atlantic after it was fully boarded. The excuse was that a flight attendant had food poisoning and was unable to fly and so the entire flight was cancelled. The Virgin team seemed unconcerned and showed NO sense of urgency to try and get people rebooked. Their solution was to rebook everyone on an evening flight the next day. If a passenger was only going to London, that was probably fine. But for people with connecting flights -- or like me with multiple connecting flights -- that wasn't acceptable."
Pros: "Overall comfortable journey"
Cons: "No option to book food option 24 hours before as could check in could not been done earlier than 24 hours before flight. I logged exactly 24 hrs before filled in details which took a few minutes by that time said too late to book special meal."
Cons: "It was terribly late. No one had a clue on when flight would depart."
Cons: "Once In London, we were told by British Airways that was flying us to Nice that Delta had “lost” our infant electronic ticket - It took 1.5h to get new ticket reissued! We missed our connection and had to wait 3 more hours for the next flight - We were somewhat lucky as multiple flights were delayed/cancelled that day - I will avoid using Virgin Atlantic in the future as they need Delta and British operate their flights and this makes it prone to issues like that"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good, though I didn't need to see the blurb about having vloggers available before every movie. One of the very few airlines to use boarding by rows, which speeds up the boarding process."
Cons: "The legroom is very cramped, pretty difficult to eat your meal with the seat in front reclined. The crew were not very attentive: they completely missed me while I was waving the rubbish on their collection rounds. In the end I had to dump it myself in the toilet bins. The PA system is too loud compared to the rest of the entertainment, had to remove the headphones for each one of them."
Pros: "The crew was the best part of my experience, super nice and accomodating"
Cons: "the wifi had subpar performance"
Pros: "Check in was very smooth with very friendly staff. On board crew was very welcoming and service was excellent."
Cons: "Aircraft configuration of the 787-9 was very poor with 9 seats abreast making the seats very cramped and very poor leg room."
Pros: "Even it was a 12-13hrs flight, I had been my best flight ever in a long flight. Virgin really exeeced my expectations."
Cons: "given milk yoghurt with VGML breakfast"
Pros: "From the check in to the service on board was very good. Staff were polite and respectful."
Cons: "The food was small. There did not serve bread with the meal"
Pros: "I liked that the boarding went really fast and the staff at the JFK airport was super nice and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like how rude the airplane crew was and how useless and unhappy they were. The sits were very uncomfortable and the food didn't have any taste."
Cons: "One toilet not working"
Cons: "Seat reclining happens even during meal time and landing! I had to ask crew to get passenger in front to put seat back upright during meal time!!! Crew should've noticed themselves and ask the passenger without my prompting!! So annoyed!! I complained to VA too"
Pros: "The food was surprisingly ok and the seats in PE were comfortable, plus there were two USB ports, perfect!"
Cons: "Being woken up to be asked if I wanted to eat, twice! If I wanted to eat, I wouldn't have a sleeping mask on my face, or be asleep! Plus, upper class and premium economy didn't board first."
Pros: "Genuinely pleasant cabin crew, good service, good food."
Cons: "Virgin Upper Class seats are cramped, with very limited stowage space. Turning the seat into a lay flat bed (and returning it seat at the end of the flight) takes some effort--not the simplest of processes. I'm not tall, but my feet protruded into the aisle so I was being disturbed whilst sleeping. Seat is also quite narrow--feels quite claustrophobic when sleeping."
Pros: "Still a more pleasant experience than BA but others have overtaken. Crew make a difference though."
Cons: "Limo service wasn't great in China - asked for address of hotel - a major international chain and confusion on booking details"
Pros: "New Dreamliner aircraft was very comfortable with loads of leg room for a tall person like myself at 1.76m"
Cons: "My seat was directly under the aircon and it was blowing very cold all night which made it quite uncomfortable. Fortunately I had an extra blanket which I could wrap over my head."
Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."
Pros: "Smiling and helpful staff Great FREE food and drinks good movies Free goodie bag of travel goods, blanket, pillow etc Free candy for landing descent"
Cons: "Leg room is a little tight"
Pros: "The crew,food and entertainment the food has improved, the ground and flight staffs was very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "We were flying to Miami, then into a cruise,weighs restrictions,we were find a100 dollars for a couple more kg, we were on holiday for nearly three weeks"
Pros: "The crew left my breakfast in the sear next to me because I was asleep (unfortunately i didn't notice till I started to disembark...)"
Cons: "I couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep very well, even though I was in a window seat (which I can normally lean on)."
Pros: "Very good on board services and nice crew"
Cons: "At boarding in Atlanta, they only checked in 1 of my 3 luggages to my final destination, the 2 others are lost..."
Pros: "Friendly crew and good food"
Pros: "Everything except the plane itself"
Cons: "Plane cramped"
Pros: "We were late arriving at the airport and the checkin desk people were SO nice putting us through. Otherwise we never would have made it on the flight. Also the extra legroom seats were well worth it!"
Pros: "Staff excellent - Inflight screen useful."
Cons: "Could not do online Check in - apparently as there were 4 separate legs on my Ticket."
Pros: "The food has improved."
Cons: "Flight turned back after an hour. Held in HK for 24 hours. Dreamliner no big sea change in air transport. Economy still uncomfortable and cramped. Crew give the impression of being bossy and aloof, I saw them making faces behind someone's back. Emirates crew are so much more helpful and pleasant."
Pros: "At JFK the lounge and service was the best I have encountered."
Pros: "The crew did their best. The company, the policies, the times ... a different story."
Cons: "Stop boarding pets on a transatlantic 11.5 hours long flight - if the owners are nuts (although they swear they love their pets) air companies must be more responsible. The first air company that will refuse to cabin board pets will be my only company to fly for the rest of my life. Sometimes, saying NO is the right answer."
Pros: "On time and comfortable flight"
Cons: "No suggestions"
Pros: "I love the food and the movies"
Pros: "I never usually like plane food but liked Turkish Airline meals on all flights I’ve been on so far"
Cons: "I do like turkish airlines but wasn’t happy with this flight. On check in we were left with seats towards the back of the aircraft. The lady seated neit to us in the aisle seat was in a wheel chair so was a problem if having to get in and out. I didn’t think it was fair that a person who depends on a wheel chair sits so far back on a plane. She also had to deal with our crying baby"
Pros: "The plane was too hot"
Cons: "Plane too hot"
Pros: "three main dishes. chicken. pasta. beef. I donot eat beef and pasta. I request her to give me chicken, but she told me that the chicken is finished. and donot ask me to take any other item."
Pros: "Full meal and entertainment system even for a shorthaul flight."
Cons: "Tight leg room"
Cons: "Bording the plane has no order passengers seated in the front border before the rear. I was in 32a to he worst seat on the plane"
Pros: "I loved the food and the staff are very helpful and friendly. I have always chosen Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Turkish do a good job of giving you a good service for your money."
Cons: "Why not keep us informed why there are delays before take off. Headphones that worked well without having to fiddle with the connection would be good"
Cons: "Runny yogurt, hard bread, meals are served to late, not enough water given while flying No space between chair No snacks in between meals No communication in Istanbul for connecting flights They don't smile or greet on Istanbul very official"
Pros: "Big plane, friendly staff, good food."
Cons: "Sometime, it gets a bit too cold."
Pros: "the seats were more roomier than the flight to istanbul."
Cons: "One of the other passengers was being difficult and irritating on the flight."
Pros: "I liked the food."
Cons: "On the way back from Istanbul to London the plane was old and small, the TV kept shutting down,even the earpiece were not working."
Cons: "It wasn't great experience as we missed the flight back to UK. They lost my husband wheelchair and we did missed the flight. They Redbook flight which was three hours later, so missed our tax home as well. We haven't received any apologies not even offer a drink. DISAPPOINTED"
Pros: "The staff were very welcoming and the seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was a little delayed"
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. Boarding was chaotic - a full flight crammed into a departure lounge with far too few seats. There were many families trying to board and the staff could barely cope."
Cons: "Have yet to arrive"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, on time and good service"
Cons: "I book flights and they toke money and last minute when i went to the airport is not existing at all"
Pros: "Food was great so was service"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work"
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight in Turkey as flight was delayed. It was my worst flight experience because nobody wanted to help me. It took an hour of being ignored by various TA staff to eventually get my boarding pass to the next available flight to London. I nearly missed that one as well because of it. The staff in Turkey was rude and unhelpful and most didn’t understand English properly. There were a number of others having the same issues, it was an awful experience."
Cons: "The boarding was a little more chaotic, but the host airport has a major influence on that process."
Pros: "Better of most European airlines.. nice enough lounge and inflight service pretty good with room to improve for sure."
Cons: "Boarding was simply chaotic where staff isn’t managing the queue well separating business and economy. At arrival baggage priority meant nothing. Half the non priority bags arrived way before a massive batch of priority bags arrived. Defeats the purpose of giving your guest fast track immigration !"
Pros: "Friendly good service"
Cons: "Istanbul changing gate to get to such long walk"
Pros: "Professional and friendly staff. Excellent film selection."
Cons: "Not enough security staff at Istanbuñ and no one from the airline to assist. The queues were too long at security so I had to run to make my flight. Lots of other people had the same trouble and I believe my cousin missed her connection."
Cons: "The crew blocks economy passengers from moving forward until all of first class has left. No other airline does this and its really annoying"
Pros: "Everything was fine on this flight."
Cons: "Everything was fine on this flight."
Pros: "Seats comfy. Turkish airlines rep came to collect passengers as previous flight delayed."
Cons: "TV/Movie/music database was empty for my seat. The temperature in the plane was very hot throughout flight."
Pros: "Great entertainment options. The food was very good for a relatively short flight. Definitely will keep flying Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "The passenger that did get seat for her child and herself next to each other. So I gave up my window seat because another premadonna would not give up his. That was the only bad part."
Pros: "loads of room, great entertainment system, nice crew and the food was very good too."
Pros: "highly organized boarding process. I wish other airlines would adopt it. courteous, helpful staff, both on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "everything was very well done"
Pros: "The food, when you get what you ask for, isn't bad"
Cons: "Rude attendants, running out of food frequently, not getting options, intermittently working entertainment with poor choices."
Pros: "Very professional and very convenient."
Cons: "Service on this flight was significantly better than the Cairo flight, probably just because this flight goes to London. Welcome drink were promptly served but the food choice was still a big no-no. EVERYTHING CONSISTS OF DAIRY PRODUCT THAT I M ALLERGIC TO. When I brought this to the flight attendant's attention, none of them was apologetic and none of them tried to find out another solution to me, who was flying their airline the first time and didn't know the not-so-diverse food option."
Pros: "It was a full plain but overall ok I will take this flight again"
Pros: "I normally always like flying with TK - this was a clear exception. Unfortunately what normally feels rather enjoyable was today some 18 hours of suffering."
Cons: "My headphone - outlet did not work - had to hold the connector manually the whole flight tonhear something of the movie. But the boarding procedure was far worse - it took almost 1 hour standing up due to new rules of technical equipment and all bags having to be opened. I understand safety goes above all - but off you know You have this time consuming process - do it in an area where people can have a seat while waiting!"
Cons: "שום דבר"
Pros: "we arrived on time, as scheduled."
Cons: "I missed my flight and the customer service was so poor that I even missed the last flight of the day, and spent money for the hotel. They wouldn't issue me a hotel voucher."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Food was so so. Turkish offers free excursions into Istambul for passengers staying over 6 hours. The excursion departs at 12p.m. This flights arrives at 11.25 a.m., but the lines in immigration are stupidly long. We arrived at the counter at 12.15. In a very unfriendly way, they explained the excursion had left, and no possibilities for joining it in Town. So, we were stuck at the airport for several hours. How stupid is to offer an excursion to passengers in layover, but program a flight with 300 passengers to arrive just in time to miss the excursion? Somebody has to think this over. This excursion should leave at 12.30, and it would avoid dozens of passengers stuck and unhappy."
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "the first flight (from Dhaka to Istanbul) was long, but great. full entertainment. the second flight from Istanbul to London had zero entertainment (the flight is obviously international and 4-5 hours long). there should be an easier way to request a vegetarian meal when i buy my ticket through your website. I shouldn't have to go through some convoluted way of contacting the airline to find if there is a veg option."
Pros: "No personal entertainment screen. No USB jack. These alone are unacceptable esp for an international flight. Food was terrible - vegetarian option was plain pasta!. Seats cramped and too close together. Crew didn't manage passengers putting luggage away so passengers did it very badly taking up overhead room with jackets and small bags. Gate was overcrowded and hot without enough seats. Staff was pleasant though and friendly and courteous and efficient."
Cons: "This flight was pure misery. In the Istanbul airport flight gates are not announced until an hour before your fight. This would be fine if Turkish Airlines would also allow us access to our flight at that time. The gate had been announced and we had to wait for them to set up a security checkpoint before we could even sit at our gate. This security checkpoint was set up at a point where nearly everyone on the flight was waiting. This caused it to be a huge delay of people concerned about missing their flight. Little did they know that they had nothing to be concerned about because our flight would eventually be delayed two hours. We were eventually loaded onto our plane which apparently was having some technical issues despite just landing in Istanbul. There were people who had rode in on the plane that was eventually deemed unsafe to fly because of an error with the steering mechanism (which we were not even told what was going on until we boarded a second plane). While they determined this we sat on a hot, non air-conditioned plane full of screaming children. I understand why they were screaming and wanted to join in. We eventually had to deboard the plane and wait for them to secure us an alternate plane. They attempted to deliver the plane to the gate, but were unable to steer the first plane away from it, so we had to be transported by bus to the open tarmac. There was no order or organization as to how people were loaded on to either the bus or plane and it was pure and utter choas that delayed our flight even further. The plane we boarded did not have inflight entertainment so we sat on our four hour flight to London left to our own devices. When we arrived in London it was pat the point of public transportation trains running and I had to reroute to a bus. By the time I arrived at my flat it was 4 in the morning. Turkish Airlines has been the most chaotic, unprofessional, disorganized, and inefficient airline I have ever traveled on. My tale will continue with my return flights and how they lost my luggage and it hung out in Istanbul for a few days before being returned to me. I can not stress enough to others to never travel with this airline. The cheaper price is not worth it."
Pros: "The speed in which the aircraft was boarded and the refreshments given quickly"
Cons: "The lack of order and last minute information not being given"
Pros: "What can I say, didn't much like anything"
Cons: "Cabin staff were blatantly prejudice, would not assist anyone who wasn't Turkish or of their color. I had an injury and surgery to my right foot, and as a result was using a walking can for m9bility. One my return flight to UK one cabin crew member decided in their wisdom to place said cane in the overhead bin. I advised her, I didn't like nor think this to be a good idea. Things move when taking off and my fair was if one wasn't aware the cane was there it may fall and injure someone. She insisted, and put the can into the overhead bin, and surprise, one of her fellow cabin members opened this b8n, and down came the cane on a passenger's head. For her injury, they offered her water and proceeded to hand the cane back to me. On flight TK 603 or TK 1983 we were assigned seats in economy row 20 A and b, well my son was seated in 20B, almost sliced his palm on the armrest, because the cover that should have been there wasn't, thus exposing jagged metal. I had to insist that we be moved and they should NEVER allow the cabin be loaded with such dangers visibly exposed. They didn't seem to show much concern, since the flight was full of "blacks"...! On our maiden flight on this airline, we had a 15+ hour layover. Couldn't get assistance from airport staff on simple questions such as where could one rest for the 15 hours, airport staff are busy riding around on automated wheel chairs, and when we asked them to assist an elderly lady who obviously could not walk the distance to her boarding gate in Istanbul, we were met with glares, or look of "they don't know English" or simply being miss directed, whilst my son carried this ladies heavy bag, including his own, and I on my walking stick, until we located the infraction desk, where a true gentleman, by the name of Mahmet came to our rescue, or more importantly took over the matter and assisted this lovely lady who was heading back to new york, to get her water for her medication, a chair to sit on until a wheelchair was brought to her. Honestly, in the many years that I've traveled, I've never seen or encountered a group of unprofessional, disrespectful and just downright prejudiced to visitors to their country! You couldn't pay me enough to visit Turkey or ever fly Turkish Airlines again in my life. So, so disappointed and disgusted by the whole experience it begs the question, how was this airline voted the 2nd best airline in Europe? You must have a very low ranking requirement, or my expectations are just too high for this airline, airport and the people I encountered."
Pros: "All the movie options, the great food, the great service, and the timeliness of arrival."
Cons: "Nothing, it was great!"
Pros: "Food was excellent. Vegetarian meal remembered. Service was good, pleasant crew. Good selection of films."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable. Headphones are really not very good quality. Touch screen difficult to use (not very responsive to touch)."
Pros: "Flight was ontime"
Cons: "1st class seats not as comfortable as other airlines. Food was nasty."
Cons: "There was a gate change shortly before boarding but it wasn't ever announced on the loudspeaker. I was sitting at the original gate and by sheer lucK happened to get up and walk past the departures info screens only to see that my flight was listed at a totally different gate. I feel I could've easily missed my flight even though I was sitting right there at the gate that had been listed when I first arrived to the airport."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Nothing. I’ll never do business with Delta again. Not even to make use of the $80.00 voucher credit they extended. Delta San Antonio manager Delphine is an awful representative of customer service, and a horrible person!"
Cons: "I should have never flown Delta."
Pros: "Very courteous"
Cons: "3 1/2 hr delay"
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Reading lights did not power during first 40 minutes of flight. Had an aisle seat originally but after upgrading to comfort+ got bumped to a middle seat"
Pros: "Dinner was great"
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "Paid $28 for internet and it didn’t work"
Pros: "Cabin crew and entire experience was phenomenal. Cannot recommend Delta more!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Food could have been better, seat was uncomfortable."
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Pros: "Crew, food, flight."
Cons: "Could always use a wider seat. I just hate having my hips touching a stranger for the whole trip."
Cons: "Plane was late taking off. Crew did not provide water when requested. They were busy with beverages that they could sell at a cost."
Cons: "Best option across the pond"
Cons: "Seats hardly recline. Very difficult to sleep in this red eye flight."
Pros: "Some of the crew members talked loudly in the galley all night long. Mostly gossiping and complaining. We had the last seats next to the galley, so it was frustrating to not have quiet and be able to sleep. This was a flight run by Delta for Air France."
Cons: "The food was horrible."
Pros: "The crew was amazing my daughter is still talking about how nice they were to her."
Cons: "Nothing at all!"
Pros: "The boarding was very quick"
Pros: "Lisa @ the Boston Delta check-in counter is AMAZING! She's super helpful and essentially saved our vacation! Her coworkers say she's the best and I couldn't agree more! Delta is very lucky to have someone like Lisa on their team!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about! If I really head to be picky maybe the in-flight meals were smaller than I expected. But again, nothing that bothered me"
Cons: "The flight was not comfortable and shaking as if it is about to explode"
Pros: "Great service. Smooth flight. Funny flight attendants. No issues boarding or deplaning."
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. What’s new?"
Pros: "Got to London on-time (early, actually) and safely. The in flight meal was okay. The leg room in comfort plus was great, the mobile app was awesome, and the staff (check-in, gate, cabin and flight deck) were professional and friendly all around."
Cons: "The leg room was great, but as a broad-shouldered guy, the width of the seat was miserable. Unfortunately, the Delta 767 doesn't offer any upgrade for a wider seat beyond Delta One, and my employer won't spring for that. Too bad there isn't a premium economy option. Also, the entertainment unit in the seat next to mine malfunctioned, which you wouldn't think would impact me that much except that because it was "seeing" touches randomly throughout the flight, the screen would turn on, off, brighter, dimmer, play random stuff, and just generally be as annoying as possible to everyone nearby throughout an overnight flight."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The hand-me-down Southwest boarding group gates. The automated ticket readers. The whole de-personalization."
Pros: "The staff"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and gave us free headphones and adjusted our seats so we could sit together as a family. There were no delays to ATL just 48 hours after the power outage the regular scheduled flight schedule had resumed. Great Flight, Great Crew!"
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. Quick flight"
Cons: "Audio entertainment quite limited"
Pros: "Staff are nice, and helpful"
Cons: "Take far too long, efficiency is extremely poor, missed flight due to luggages being lost, requested vegetarian meal, when booking, confirmed at gate but didn't have me on the list for special meal. ECONOMY class has nooo room for a long flight...and no entertainment only 3 choices for western."
Pros: "Food good, wine OK"
Cons: "Discomfort bad"
Pros: "Excellent leg room. Comfy seat"
Cons: "Seat couldn't recline back. Was a little uncomfortable for a long flight. Chair had crumbs on it before I sat down-it was easily wiped away meaning no one had cleaned the chairs or looked at them beforehand. Absolutely freezing. Wearing long socks and boots and my feet still felt frozen by the end."
Cons: "Price to get a little more space"
Pros: "I booked via Kayak using Virgin Atlantic shared out to Delta. Check was confusing as both airlines used different flight numbers. When I went to check in with Virgin Atlantic they told me to go to Delta. When I went to Delta they told me to go back to Virgin Atlantic. I wound up checking in with Virgin Atlantic. Everyone was very polite but check in was confusing. Everything else was wonderful. Cutomer service was great from beginning to end."
Cons: "Check in."
Pros: "More seat room than expected for economy tickets. Good service, on time, polite staff"
Cons: "Duty free purchases not waiting for us at boarding like usual. Audio selection on entertainment was v poor"
Pros: "Delta has a pretty good entertainment system. Lots of movies to watch and the system works well."
Cons: "Seats are very tight and uncomfortable. The food was horrible. Tasted like a $1 frozen meal that was microwaved til mushy. It was chicken but I couldn't tell you more. And flight attendant helpfully described it as 'chicken'. Breakfast was a cold roll, a piece of cheese and some awful yogurt. This was the most unbearable 8.5 hours of my life."
Pros: "Crew were good, flight on time, free drinks"
Pros: "Courtesy. Efficiency The flight attendant was extraordinary. Coates"
Cons: "The first plane was a little old. Neither reading light worked."
Pros: "Quick boarding, clean plane, comfortable seats, the flight departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "The landing was a bit harsh, we couldn't connect to the airplane WiFi, so we did not enjoyed the entertainment."
Pros: "Thomas our steward was excellent."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."
Pros: "Everything that British Airways tried to do to help us when Delta didn't want to take ownership for their screwups!"
Cons: "Not only did we miss our Delta connection but when Delta rebooked us on a British Airways flight they refused to help when British Airways could not access our tickets. they kept saying since it was Virigin Atlantic who we originally booked through that VA woulkd have to fix it, even thought Delta was the actual carrier and the ones that did the rebooking onto the British Airways flight"
Pros: "My Delta flight was a code share with Virgin Atlantic. A pleasant flight overall with my first impression being an airline with current popular music playing in the background and flight attendants cheerful. Since I was traveling alone, I opted to not purchase my seat prior to my flight date, instead I chose my aisle seat within 24 hours for free. I checked in my one bag and found out I had pre-checked so my security check went so smooth at the new terminal 2 at LAX. Looking forward to my flight back on June 15."
Cons: "Had a toddler behind me crying and screaming the last 40 minutes of landing into Heathrow because she couldn't sit on her mother's lap and made it quite unbareable for all of us in the vicinity. Wondering if there was an alternative way to handle the situation."
Cons: "The fact that my flight was delayed for the second time in the past week"
Pros: "Everything was just right"
Pros: "On my ticket it clearly indicate that I am entitled to 2 check in baggage. Delta completely refused to honor this. They said am only entitled 1 piece, and therefore I have to pay for the other luggage. I was forced to borough money from someone at the airport just so that I could board the flight."
Cons: "I am asking that my money be refunded. And next time delta should honor and respect agreements. And be more professional"
Pros: "The amount of movies to watch"
Cons: "Seating not enough room, couldn't use the overhead lights for 7 1/2 hour flight. Ridiculous."
Cons: "The food was supposed to be hot chicken was served cold"
Pros: "Online check in was very good. Liked the ability to select free seats ahead of 24hr window. Liked being air side for the whole trip Detroit airport Terminal A was good. Free WiFi 50mb + awesome. Crew were friendly and efficient Will do this trip again."
Cons: "Seat always seem uncomfortable after 3hrs anywhere! And more leg room would always help. Food was OK liked the choice of 3 meals difficult to do quality food for 200+ but keep trying to improve"
Cons: "It was Delta not Virgin"
Cons: "I had to wait at the gate for 3 hours due to the maintenance of airplane. Delta offered some snacks and beverages but 3 hours? I was so stressed out to wait 3 hours to worry to take a connect flight."
Pros: "The in-flight service was extremely good."
Cons: "The seat was slightly too short for me. If Delta provided a soft mattress cover, slimiler to that of Virgin Atlantic, then the flat bed would be far more comfortable."
Pros: "Situation was handled well."
Cons: "Lack of information on the cause of delay."
Pros: "Overall, I can’t complain. The take off and landing was peaceful"
Cons: "The food could’ve been better. The wait time at Abuja needs lots of improvement. It was the worst part of the trip"
Pros: "Flight was canceled. No crew... Alternative: Eurowings via Newark. And then United to Detroit. A totally wasted day..."
Cons: "First flight delayed, missed flight to SF, stuck in frankfurt. A hotel is not adequate compensation"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Meals and entertainment"
Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "Leg room and bigger seats"
Pros: "The crew on the jet were fine. The entertainment was good too."
Cons: "The crew at checkin we’re pretty awful. They were rude and not very helpful. I witnessed 3 customers have poor service in front of me and then they weren’t helpful with me either. The plane changed and I had paid for a seat and I lost my money and the seat I paid for and was never notified."
Cons: "Cramped, old plane with no entertainment system."
Cons: "Shortness of the staff at the counter when checking in. We couldn’t preprint our boarding passes and the staff was inconsiderate when we tried to explain why"
Cons: "First flight was delayed too much for me to make a connecting flight to Frankfurt. Had to ask twice to be rebooked. Had to connect through Chicago O'Hare and walk for miles there. Arrived in Germany 3 hours behind schedule."
Cons: "Flight was on time and food was very good. Took wonderful care of us. Our first flight to Europe and first time on Lafthansa."
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Cons: "The food was soggy and not the greatest"
Cons: "Because the one came in from London Got Delay And I miss my flight"
Pros: "great airport and ease of check in and quickness on boarding flight."
Cons: "boarding everyone all at once creates long unnecessary lines when staggered boarding would help"
Cons: "The flight got delayed and it was a nightmare for my handicap old mom."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Waiting for long time in a crowded bus to NORAD the plane then rushing out of the bus to Nita the plane with no lines and having to wait for the crowds outside the lane in a freezing temperature. Furthermore, there was no entertainment on the plane and the food was horrible. Add to this the very cramped seat space and no carry ons in the plane (unless you speak German)"
Pros: "On my way to meet my granddaughter & took Lufthansa flight! Very satisfied with the overall. Crew very friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. Smooth flight & super landing in Munich!!!"
Pros: "Excellent service from staff on the flight"
Cons: "Long line-up in Frankfurt at Lufthansa Passport control . Could probably open up the third counter and not just one Business and one Economy? First meal ( Turkey) had something in it that blowded me up all the way to Vancouver! Not sure if it was the vegetables or?? Not nice if you can't walk around and also not great for your neighbor to the right and left. I usually don't experience this with my food that I cook or choose."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and polite. The airplane was clean. The boarding was quick and easy. The entertainment was varied and enjoyable."
Cons: "It wasn't an issue on my flight since there were empty seats in my row, but I don't enjoy the spacing provided for personal items on the floor under the seat in front you. For four seats there are three sections; so, you can hope that someone doesn't need any space or else you have to decide how to awkwardly split it up."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight great crew."
Pros: "We left on time"
Cons: "Tight legs space"
Pros: "Got off to a late start, should have been an omen."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "More movie choices. The food choices this time we're not as good."
Cons: "We made it to the gate from our connecting flight at 1pm, flight was supposed to leave at 1:10, we got to gate after RUNNING from gate A to Z just to be told the plane left. After researching, we found out the plane didn't depart until 1:43pm. Horrible horrible service. Will NEVER fly with Lufthansa or into Germany."
Pros: "food and service"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "By far the best flying experience in a long time..."
Cons: "There were no options for food, I was just told that there was only pasta left while the passenger next to me ate chicken. This was totally unacceptable. I only hope that this was my last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Was on time , food is pretty delicious still."
Cons: "Flight crew . No alcohol available after the 1st! round. She told me she doesn't have it maybe later.. she never gave me after that. I always had it min 3-4 times before. My first choice is always Lufthansa but after this time I am not sure anymore, I was very disappointed with my attendant and made this trip a bad experience with them. Movie selection not so great either"
Pros: "Smiles from the male and female stewards. Being gracious to customers and treating them with respect....keeping us from getting bored"
Cons: "the Airbus was much more crowded than the Boeing (777) we flew over on and run by United. When food/trash was being passed, it was tough for passengers coming from the rest room to get back to their seat."
Cons: "The second flight they board us then left us on the bus in the parking lot for 25 minutes breathing airplane fuel."
Cons: "Not enough space in between seats"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. I had an exit row so plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was a short flight so it didn't really néed food and didn't have entertainment. They hand out pretzel mix, not something I can have (celiac). Doesn't matter on a short 1 hour flight."
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Boarding was even more chaotic. No clear signs for premium economy."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great, and the food was better than many airline meals I've had before."
Cons: "I am Star Alliance Gold and I didn't like that it wasn't possible to select an economy plus seat upon check in, and I wasn't upgraded even though there were seats available. I picked this airline specifically because of it's star alliance membership but it didn't get my anything."
Pros: "Without a doubt, the flight crew on this flight was amazing. They went out of their way to assist everyone and make sure that people had whatever they needed."
Cons: "The chairs were small, even though we upgraded to economy plus, and the outlets and my tv screen did not work. On a 10 hour flight, that's a big deal! It seems like I paid extra to get less. Terrible!"
Cons: "food, entertainment"
Pros: "We try to fly Lufthansa when we go to Europe (2x a year). This trip we upgraded to more leg room in economy and what a difference! Everything else was the same, which has always been excellent. Munich Airport has great food and shopping. Lufthansa's service is truly impeccable, the airline staff were constantly walking up and down the aisles offering food and drink and comfort. Great end to a three week trip in Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and of course Germany!"
Pros: "Service was good, boarding was fast, no other issues."
Cons: "The seat pitch is inhumane. I could barely fit into the seat without hitting my knees on the seat in front. And that was before the person ahead of me reclined. It's not like Lufthansa is a budget airline. It's a full-fledged major carrier charging full-fledged prices. Seriously, I was expecting more."
Pros: "Service was good, boarding was fast, no other issues."

It's not like Lufthansa is a budget airline. It's a full-fledged major carrier charging full-fledged prices. Seriously, I was expecting more."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was good"
Cons: "Seating comfort was *horrible*! Looks like they've made the seats more cramped, especially when the seats recline"
Pros: "Very nice snack."
Cons: "same issues with the seats, not very comfortable, not all crew members are polite"
Pros: "I fly regularly between Germany and USA. Would rate this flight as the second best flight in recent years. Small details can make a difference."
Cons: "The breakfast that was served was not great. Blueberry muffin super sweet and canola bar with raisins.none odds which i would ever pick if I had any choice."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived on time. It would've been helpful if more announcements were translated to English."
Cons: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Waited for 5 hours, and then rerouted to Houston"
Pros: "Everything worked without drama or misstep."
Cons: "The bus from the terminal to the plane was odd, but worked out fine in the end."
