It was far too cold. Had to wear my coat and use the blanket. Very unpleasant.
Clean and comfortable short flight. Arrived on time.
I attempted to cancel my flight due to positive covid case 10 days before I flew with chatdeal and kayak and after repeated calls from me and promises I would be called back and the chance of a credit note I heard nothing. No help, no support, no understanding. I lost £1500. Would never use again or recommend.

Cons: "Cannot expect better service"
Pros: "It was a great flight!"
Cons: "nothing, pretty much perfect!"
Pros: "Great crew, good in-flight movies. Good food."

Pros: "Very friendly crew. The meals are good, nice variety. Hot food is hot."
Cons: "Seats are not the most comfortable and sometimes the screen on the entertainment tv doesn't work that easily."
Pros: "The crew looked after us well"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Premium economy was perfect, smaller cabin with less people, great flight."
Cons: "Squishy space and very late flight unfortunately"
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 were really nice and seemed to genuinely care about the passengers, were approachable and were very happy to chat with passengers and help them out."
Cons: "The food options always seem to run out by the back of the plane and this time didn't match the menu they gave me at the start of the flight, not that I minded because the option I was given was pretty tasty."
Pros: "crew / cabin staff always seem very friendly and genuine and a willingness to help"
Pros: "As usual, punctual flight with friendly crew."
Cons: "Pity the wifi in international flights isn't complementary (or at least a basic connection like on domestic flights)."
Pros: "Smooth overall. Food mediocre but edible. (More than I could say for other airlnes.) Price also good."
Cons: "Lots of flight schedules changes. Missed connecting flight as a result. No time left to deal with customs and baggage."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Food was very good and plentiful. Entertainment was good. Overall the very long flight was better than expected."
Cons: "It took forever to board in Sydney with all passengers standing and waiting for 45 minutes and never being told what was going on. I resented having my passport and ticket demanded at least 4 times. A bit overkill and a power trip by security. Absolutely despise airport security...there is no uniformity."
Pros: "This flight is the best I’ve been on! Boarding was easy, the seats were comfortable, the film choice was excellent and I enjoyed everything I ate. I really felt I was being treated well by all the staff on board."
Pros: "Pilot was great— we don’t thank them enough for a smooth and safe arrival. Plane was great. Ammenities were given (such as ear plugs etc)"
Cons: "Crew members are a bit bland and lack customer service, but I noticed that as a whole in Australia (slow service/not really interactive or communicative & very quick to make comments and leave) not sure if they just hate Americans based on the media or what. One crew member cut in line at the restroom when there was 3 of us waiting to go. Another told me my husband couldn’t receive his meal because he was napping and then he quickly walked away— Yet i received mine on the flight coming to Australia when my husband asked for me? Sanitation between flights should be more strict-my headphones were opened which lead me to believe my pillow wasn’t changed either, since one had a case and one didn’t."
Pros: "The seats of the economy class are a little bit bigger than the rest of the airlines and are so much confortable to sleep."
Cons: "The crew speaks to quick and the Australian accent is not always easy to understand"
Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
Cons: "Bed was incredibly uncomfortable in first class. It was like sleeping on the floor. People talking loudly in the bar late into the night, which made it even harder to sleep. Didn’t sleep a wink on this 10 hour flight."
Pros: "While seats were close together (little knee space), the plane was 1/2 full, so lots of space in adjoining seats. Nice crew."
Cons: "Delay in boarding - not clear why. Can never get the wireless entertainment system to work."
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Uncomfortable to sit for eight hours"
Pros: "Easy and on time boarding."
Cons: "Seats are extremely small. And when the seat in front reclines they are basically in your lap."
Pros: "Food and service was ok"
Cons: "Delayed at the airport. Very little leg room and hot while waiting to yake off. Entertainment was really bad. Bad screen and sound quality was awful."
Cons: "It was terribly late. No one had a clue on when flight would depart."
Pros: "The onboard crew were lovely."
Cons: "Stood at check in for over 30 mins with no staff in sight. Boarding was a disaster. Staff was not prepared nor organized and the crowds were unbearable. Upgraded seats were laughable and not worth an extra $60. Food was mediocre. Entertainment would have been good but GE touchscreens are so old, they were difficult to work."
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Pros: "good plane and timing"
Cons: "meal was not served according to the request and no sound support from the staff"
Pros: "Good Virgin experience though food was not brilliant"
Cons: "Seating was very uncomfortable. Hardly any padding in the seats and very little leg room. Far worse than any previous Virgin flight."
Pros: "Entertainment selection Cabin Service associates were very good WiFi service available"
Cons: "The planes are old and tired, new 787s on this route are long overdue. Thomson's premium service is an improved offering over Virgin and offers more inclusive extras such as lounge access. There is no wonder wall on the 747 only a wonder "basket" If you are flying from Gatwick, upgrading to premium isn't worth it. Go to upper class or fly with another airline. Check in was quicker for Economy passengers and it proved a challenge to work past the economy passengers during boarding to get to the premium agent."
Pros: "courteous attendants"
Cons: "Aircraft amenities. Small 737 for a long international flight. Waiting for busses in both Bali and Sydney."
Pros: "My flight was delayed boarding, Entertainment wasn't exciting oppose to other Virgin flights I have taken in previous years. Food wasn't great. I had teriyaki chicken with rice and I left it. Big dislike - when I was checking in online I found some economy seats I couldn't allocate for my seating due to additional charge applies. I think this is very off putting as I have been a Virgin member for years and it is very disappointing."
Cons: "I liked the Airbus carrier which had only two seats (window and Isle) on each sides oppose to three. It felt more comfortable."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, efficient staff on the ground & in the air. Great selection of movies, tv, music for each person flying. Comfortable flight. Great beverage & food choices."
Cons: "Both my departing flight and returning flight had broken wifi on it. Very bummed"
Pros: "Everything was great and I truly enjoyed this flight."
Pros: "The people at Check-in were fantastic - found out you have to check-in more than an hour before flight. They close an hour before to taking bags for international flights. Although right at an hour was late, they reopened for us."
Cons: "Everyone was delightful during the entire flight."
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"
Cons: "I couldn't rank the food or entertainment as I didn't try the food since it was for purchase only, and there was no entertainment offered."
Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."
Pros: "All the meals and movies included"
Cons: "Why are there no plug-ins?! That was very disappointing..."
Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."
Pros: "The vegetarian meals, leg room and comfortable seats, wifi tv entertainment, kind and courteous service. It made the trip more comfortable! Thanks!"
Cons: "The domestic flight in PNG was cramped, but the flight attendant was very nice and helpful"
Pros: "Make sure you bring food with you because they will starve you. I also asked for band-aide 2x but it never came. Service is very poor."
Cons: "Service is very poor, ground and air crew are not friendly, can even be driscriminating. There's scarcity of food in this flight. They need to give snacks more often than one in a 13hr flight."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very obliging and attentive. The seating was very reasonable for coach."
Cons: "Hand luggage was excessive and the overheads were full and the flight was not full."
Pros: "Fly attendants have no knowledge of hospitality. They arguing with customers and refusing to assist, blaming on company policies. My friends were assigned seats next to a toilet. No folding options. One of our friends has a back pain problems and got stuck for 5 hours. There were seats available upfront and Manager Gina could simply change our seats instead of dry “there is nothing I can do” I am not recommending this airline."
Pros: "See previous comments"
Cons: "See previous comments"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The crew was nice"

Pros: "Flight was smooth, arrived early..crew was prompt and courteous."
Pros: "The flight was very good in both directions. I was quite comfortable. On my return flight I left my e-reader on the plane. I didn't realize it until 2 days later. I called Delta and spoke with Tiffany. She was so helpful. She located my e-reader and I was able to go to the airport and pick it up."
Cons: "Carry brewed decaf coffee."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. No issues. Friendly staff. We had to fill out customs declaration forms but didn’t have a pen. We asked stewardess for a pen and they didn’t have any left. She said to borrow from a neighbor which I thought was rude. We don’t know our neighbors. If a flight requires filling out a form, they should provide enough pens to do so."
Cons: "Not enough pens"
Pros: "When I finally got off the plane"
Cons: "Everything. No instructions, no pens or pencils, ignorant staff. Got to Cancun and waited 2 hours with no directions to just go they immagration. The forms were in Spanish and the staff could not translate. I’ll never fly Delta again."

Pros: "Free movies on plane, quick boarding! Ok time :)"
Pros: "Like the fact I could watch 2-3 movies. Love the gluten free options for snacks."
Cons: "All of the couples were not assigned seats together. I've never seen anything so stupid. So before the plane took off, about four of us ladies from all over the back of the plane stood up and each jumbled a bunch of seats like a rubix cube so the men could then get up and go sit with their wives."
Cons: "Gate agent @ LAX calling every single passenger with a lot of noise around couldn't hear. I had to go and check myself a couple of times."
Pros: "Food was amazing tasted and seasoned well. Not bland, really good salad and chicken."
Cons: "Delay. (liked kayak delay updates tho!) crew not very attending and it looked like they didnt care. In order to keep folks busy because of the delay. They gave out immigration and customs papers out, but refused to give pen. I literally didn't had one and answer from the crew was like that. " Excuse me do you have a pen by any chance?" . "NO! I dont! asked them" pointing out to other crew members, -this is the best part- the female stewardess had clearly visibly a pen in her front shirt pocket! Sitting around and trying to kill time and no pen still. While busy with food and other stuff, i fell asleep. Then after a while when going to the restroom i asked the male steward if he would have a pen please, he pointed out they dont have any pens. ( please note he marked on his check board, who is getting which meal on the first class)"
Cons: "That we did not have a seat assigned"
Pros: "Everything was great from boarding to landing."
Pros: "Loved having the Movie and tv options on the flight, really passed the time"

Cons: "Had all my jewelry stolen from my luggage!"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "The booking was done through vayama and the confirmation numbers didn't match with delta's. It was confusing. I had to talk to a delta rep and give her the eticket # and at that point, she gave me a new confirmation #, that I was able to use to check in with on delta"

Pros: "The crew was outstanding, polite, and professional."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable, but much too crowded. The seating would have been very good for children but for adults it was much too crowded. My knees were up against the seat in front and my back is sore from having to spend most of the trip twisted to try to fit into the small space. Also, my seat was is row 16 and was called a “premium” seat and I was charged an extra $24 for it. I did not find it any different than all the seats around me. What was the extra charge for?"
Cons: "They lost my luggage."
Pros: "Great selection of movies to watch."
Cons: "The seat-back display screen could use some updating/improving. Also, the earbuds weren't very good."
Pros: "great flight free movie going down"
Cons: "no free movie/tv coming back"
Pros: "Very satisfied. Great service"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours."
Pros: "On time, pretty friendly crew"
Cons: "Too small a plane for that long a trip. Bathrooms were VERY small & rare."
Pros: "Flight was fine. They were especially generous with the snacks."
Cons: "My one complaint is the bathroom layout of the A320. Two tiny closet bathrooms in the back for all of coach and a much larger one much larger one first class (which is like 5 rows with a mesh curtain for separation). The coach bathrooms are so small a normal person can barely get in and turn around to close the door. I question whether a larger person would be able to actually use them. I also saw the flight attendant actively turn away coach passengers trying to use the first class bathroom when it was open (not standing in the aisle or anything annoying like that). That's ridiculous to have 2 tiny bathrooms for all of coach and also to make people walk all the way to the back of the plane when you are seated much closer to the first class bathroom."
Pros: "The plane was less than half full so I got my own row and slept most of the flight. Chargers and tv screens for each seat"
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing, besides the flight was slightly delayed but not by long"
Pros: "Flew in First Class. Felt very pampered"
All was normal and as expected these days.

Pros: "Great Airline, Positive customer experience!"
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"
Cons: "Try not to have delayed"
Pros: "service and punctuality"
Cons: "time management for connecting flights with star alliance partners.

Very bad"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "The onboard menu shows an option of salmon or beef. But when the crew came, only lamb was available. Also, the crew didn't seem interested."
Pros: "They allow pre-boarding for over-65s! So much easier to hoist that carry-on bag to the overhead compartment when not blocking someone else! :) Avianca crew/ticket agents are SO helpful and pleasant. This was a delightful airline to discover! (This was a portion of my first trip booked on Avianca.)"
Cons: "Less time to get out..."
Cons: "Boarding could be more friendly and confortable."
Cons: "First flights were cancelled- trip from Boston to Cusco no meal or beverage service- initially due to weather, butthen staff just disappeared"
Cons: "When arriving at the airport in Bogota not only the flight was delayed but the gate was changed and the person at the counter in the gate wrote the wrong gate on the ticket and flight to Lima was missed. They booked the passenger in the next flight 9 hours after. They did not provide any food nor hotel so passenger to stay at the airport. My guess, they overbooked the flight as they always do, this trip was for my son (20) traveling by himself for the first time, they took advantage of his inexperience; this is is my 3rd bad experience with Avianca and definitely the last one!"
Cons: "Spend over an hour in the plane after landed. We weren’t even Offer water or nothing."
Cons: "Over 4 hour delay, missed my connector, and am now paying a lot $ of pocket for hotel and transport. My seat and tray table were broken.. seat kept going back, dangerous for take off and landing. Try table was hanging from side. Plantain chips were okay though."

Pros: "Copa Airlines had good food and acceptable leg room, even in economy."
Cons: "We we're rebooked on Copa Airlines from Avianca after a delay and would have to go to Panama first, then Cancun, and arrive around 10 pm instead of 11 am. Do not fly Avianca out of JFK!"

Cons: "Till up today i didn't fly to Colombia due to THE stike of pilots and I have requested to be reimbursed .I am very disappointed that I have not recieved any answer.Please let me know as soon as posibel ."

Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "While the plane was hardly full the seats were awful and overnight painful. I was served a sandwich which was moldy."
Cons: "Overall it was a good flight, although they lost my luggage. Fortunatelly, they found it and deliver to my hotel by the next morning."
Pros: "that we landed safely"
Cons: "plane take off was delayed flight 670 and employees on ground were un-organized and over booked"
Cons: "Not only did they not let me board the plane because I was in the bathroom but then they charged me an outrageous amount for a new ticket to get out of Lima. Their transit staff were completely unhelpful and couldn't care less about my situation. I will NEVER fly them again."
Pros: "Their timing was good. Not much at all besides that. The crew was just pissed off for no reason."
Cons: "No comfort, the comfort was terrible. Only 1 option of food - with no ingredient allergy warning. The entertainment was glitchy."
Cons: "I waited 3 hours to do the check in and after that the fly got delayed twice."
Pros: "In flight meals, entertainment system, and value!"
Pros: "I sat by the window, it was a nice newer plane, and I thought the pilot did an excellent job landing. I have always loved flying with Avianca. Probably the best company to fly with!"

Pros: "Preference to travel with kids"
Pros: "Overall it was a good flight."
Cons: "There was some delay in boarding. In addition there was some confusion as to what gate we were to board. We were told to be at Gate 15 and there was a display saying that our flight was leaving from there so we had every reason to believe that that was indeed the boarding gate. It wasn't until much later that we founf out that we were at the wrong boarding gate and that we were boarding out of Gate 14."
Pros: "The airline gives a good service to travel, always on time that's really good, but their staff don't have a good costumer service, food and entertainment is pretty good!!!"
Cons: "Some of the staff were so rude, specifically a guy was so rude and mean when a lady asked him for help to place his baggage on the compartment, he was so aggressive like mad because she asked for help and that kind of attitude feels so disappointed of them"
Cons: "My flight from El Salvador to Bogota was cancalled, so I waited at airport in El Salvador 7 1/2 hours and on the return I got to the counter at 4.05am for a 5.00am flight, with just check in luggage and they would not let me check in, so I had to stay in Bogota an extra night and pay a change, fee so basically everything was very poor"
Pros: "i like everything the price , the customer services the convenience of the schedule the luxury of the plains"
Great food, great service, great plane

Cons: "the inflight staff needs to improve their behaviour in dealing with passengers. Some were quite rude. The aircraft seats were extremely cramped. The food selection was quite poor."
Cons: "The place was too narrow"
Cons: "No snacks or water except in the back of the plane. It felt like I was bothering the flight attendants when I went back to get a snack. Most good international flights place snacks in the galleys with drinks so you can grab yourself at any point at your discretion."
Pros: "The food was great, customer service also good and price is Afordable"
Cons: "Long delays, poor information, cold food and an entertainment system that wouldn't play films properly."

Cons: "The temperature on board was extremely hot! Add this to body odor and you get a terrible flight."
Pros: "Food service and choice of meals was good. Nice movie and Show selection."
Cons: "The aircraft was dirty the bathroom was not up kept. The boarding process was horrible considering I’ve flown with Turkish Airlines before. The seat was extremely uncomfortable and the passengers were kicking the chair behind me and in front of me the entire time:/ The plane got really cold towards the end of the flight! The crew seemed irritated and we’re talking in the back quite a bit when we needed assistance. I was disappointed with this flight to be honest !"
Pros: "Food was really nice"
Cons: "Crew wasn't caring, poor service"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Absolutely everything. Food and hot towels!!! Changing reservations after missed flight very easy."
Pros: "The crew, the food and the entertainment on demand."
Cons: "A frightful flight due to the footstomping, loud, singing, annoying, intimdating andintoxicated English football fan onboard; who were heading from Istanbul to Ukraine for football finals between Liverpool and Madrid I believe. Their behavior made the trip the worst I have ever experienced. As I was seated in the business class section, I can only comment about what I saw and heard there. In that cabin, the cabin crew served alcohol to people that were clearly drunk, yet continued to provide more alcohol. The finale was when the rear section of the plane broke out in vulgar and loud football songs; being picked up by the drunken holigans in the business class section. At this point I was fearful for my physical safety knowing the history of footballers fueled by alcohol. In addition, had there been an onboard emergency, a planeful of drunk passengers would have added to the potential for disaster."
Pros: "Comfortable but narrow seats."
Cons: "Entertainment system could do with more selection."
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: "good flight"
Cons: "they delayed the flight so i lost my checked in connection"
Pros: "great food! competent crew. all efficient and good."
Cons: "an extra beverage service in the middle of the flight would be nice, but that's okay."
Pros: "After the first 2 1/2 hour flight this 777 had pretty comfortable seats for this 13 plus hour plane ride."
Cons: "Maybe charge just $10.00 more and serve a little bit better food."
Pros: "Food was good! Loved all the goodies! Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The airplane was way to warm, for such a long flight it should've been a better temperature inside the plane, you dont want to get all sweaty and smelly while traveling!"
Pros: "Turkish airlines is the only airlines I fly with for many reasons. Their quaility is a lot better than most of the airlines out there. ( I've flown with many) Although it does tend to be a little bit more expensive it's deffinetly worth it in my opinion."
Cons: "However, unfortunately I have noticed a decline in their service. The food was not as great as it usually is. I had salmon and it was very dry. With the amount of money given to the flight they could have paid attention to it more. It also happened to be my birthday on the flight and my friend who was flying with me called the airlines to ask if there was anything special that can be done. Happily they said that they did do celebrate birthdays and anniversarys. Sadly though nothing was done. Overall was it horrible I would say no but they are starting to loose quality"
Pros: "Timing was perfect without any unnecessary delay in transfer. Crew is quite helpful and food was pretty good for Economy class as was the leg room and footrest. Entertainment was excellent."
Pros: "Aircraft good, crew members respectful, food was good."
Cons: "Confusion delayed takeoff by 1 hour or more. Staff at gate had an issue in their system. They let others after me on the flight but said would be missing luggage. I said that is fine. Ten minutes later they said they would not let me board. I spent no less than 4 hours trying to get out of the airport-- waiting for visa and then through customs. Every Turkish airline desk took a long time and I was sent to at least 4 Turkish airlines desks. It is all a mess. So I am one day delayed in my arrival to my destination. This has been so frustrating!!!!!!!"
Cons: "There was not enough milk while they know there is alot of kids"
Pros: "Besides the birth of my daughter, this trip to Italy through Istanbul was the greatest THING that I've experienced, EVER! My flight with Turkish Airlines was a HUGE part of that odyssey!"
Cons: "Because of my delayed flight from Atlanta, I missed my connecting flight from Turkey to Rome! So, in the future (yes I plan on flying through Turkish Airlines exclusively for international travel), I will book my flightts with a larger "gap" between flights! Otherwise....Turkish Airlines is PERFECTO!☺"
Pros: "Service was amazing! Highly recommend."
Pros: "great good/service and very comfortable flight."
Pros: "Worst customer service ever."
Cons: "Just don't do it. I've never been so mistreated. Everyone I met at the Istanbul airport who flew on Turkish was miserable and angry because of the way they were being treated."
Pros: "The crew were very nice al of them."
Cons: "The seats were to close to each other, so when you watch a movie on the screen it was very close that it will hurt your eyes if you keep watching the whole movie."
Pros: "the crew was very nice and helping... everything went like clock :) was excellent... i got to early to the airport but overall it was great flight and i enjoy it the crew was very nice.... also to see the plain chef in the boarding is genius"

Pros: "Overall journey was ok"
Cons: "I am vegeterian. Food was horrible :("
Pros: "Flight Service, meals on board, entertainment system, comfort, kits. Service on board is great."
Cons: "Service at Ataturk Airport, this place needs to be improved, also booking system that will sell tickets with more than 24 hour layover without mentioning on the site, tricks passengers to idea that they are leaving on the same day. I got stuck in Istanbul for 24 hours, just because tickets didn't mentioned date of second departure."
Pros: "Crew, plane, entertainment."
Cons: "That it took 4 day's to get my luggage. I deserve to be compensated."
Pros: "Turkish airlines crew & service are excellent especially if you compare it to those of many other airlines."
Cons: "Courtesy of the crew & good old fashion meal service. Also the entertainment on board."
Pros: "I liked the service and the food."
Cons: "It could have been on time flight."
Cons: "Poor Business class Entertainment system didn't work Seats didn't recline Boarding was terrible Staff at Istanbul airport very bad Organisation terrible support very bad"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and I enjoyed the entertainment system. It was a clean plane and undoubtedly newer than most."
Cons: "The food was mediocre, but I was happy to even receive food on a short flight."
Pros: "Service was awesome top to bottom"
Cons: "The business class cabin was hot on both flights. That seemed to be a common complaint among the passengers we talked to. The Economy cabin seemed to be set quite a bit cooler."
Pros: "Very Modern plane, good seats an entertainment system, reactive crew."
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "Food was wonderful, technology helped the flight "fly by", and the plane was comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was different in every city we stopped in - mainly due to other countries' airports and regulations. I believe this was not a problem due to the airline, but boarding groups weren't always adhered to."
Pros: "I'll start with the food. Authentic Turkish cuisine with multiple options. The entertainment trumps the food with dozens of movies. Let's face it, this isn't Emirates, but you can't go wrong with 15+ recent movies for a 10 hour flight. I watched three and even got some sleep."
Cons: "Service was subpar, but this was a full flight. Boarding was pretty terrible with 3 security lines. The lines themselves were not a problem, but they did not provide nearly enough room at the gate for this, and the boarding started 2 hours before scheduled take off. Personally, I'd rather not sit on a plane for an hour before having to sit through a 10 hour flight, but we were not given a choice."
Pros: "Crew is amazing, as always"
Cons: "Allergic needs were not met"
Pros: "The audacity of your gross negligence in a time of global pandemic."
Cons: "Any semblance of social responsibility or ethical behavior."
Pros: "Really friendly and efficient crew."
Cons: "Seats and entertainment screen."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Better seats,better food."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Long waiting for luggage"
Cons: "They run out of chicken and only had pasta dinner left. I don't like pasta ."
Pros: "I loved the Awesome Check in lady from United airlines, her name is Sandra and she is pure awesomeness. I also loved the air hostesses for the care they have given me from the time I set foot On the plane until I left."
Cons: "The attitude of the Lufthansa gate staff was anything but welcoming. Reaching the gate for the Lufthansa flight was greeted with my name shout from a distance, and my apologise for being late were met with shrugs! Not only that, but my 3 checked bags are still in at IAD, I didn’t receive in CAI!"
Pros: "Seat 16 B was great"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it with me."
Pros: "snacks and entertainment"
Pros: "Very amazing"
Cons: "Hamburg to Frankfurt flight delayed did not flight to losnageles rerouted me to Toronto 8 hours extra awe full"
Cons: "Food could be better"
Cons: "Better food/choice-make it on time....and its quite cold in the plane-not sure why."
Pros: "Standard flight and comfort."
Cons: "Food was absolutely beyond horrible...and the crew would run instead of walk down aisles to wherever their dedtination was."
Pros: "This was our return flight back to the US much better then going to Europe!"
Cons: "The only thing i wish all airlines would consider is to give us regular folks more room(space) not just the rich people in business or first class! On a 10+hr flight it is well needed!"
Pros: "Upgraded to Economy Plus for more legroom. Very worth it for an 8-hour flight"
Cons: "All flights cancelled. Stuck overnight."
Cons: "Flight Hamburg to Frankfurt: our children were sitting separately"
Cons: "We only had 45 minutes between flights. We almost missed our flight to Naples due to having to go through security again in Frankfurt. The Frankfurt airport was very congested. I wouldn’t have booked a flight with such a short layover had I known how far apart the gates were and that we’d have to go through security again. I would suggest not offering flights with such short layovers."
Cons: "Because the one came in from London Got Delay And I miss my flight"
Pros: "Once again, the in-flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "The Frankfort airport is a nightmare. They have loooooooong gateways, so when I Finally got through security FOR THE THIRD TIME, it’s a 10 minute, speed-walk to the gate. Again, a flight delay was the only thing that made the connection possible. I made it to the gate with 3 minutes to spare, so no time for the bathroom, no time to get lunch or even a bottle of water, no time period. And at the end of it all, my bag is lost."
Cons: "Flight was delayed getting out and when we landed we were stuck on the tarmac for an hour so our connecting flight was missed. The person at the Lufthansa desk left at EWR so there was no one to talk to about vouchers for our cancelled flight. Also I never received an email update about my upgrade request contrary to the email I received saying that I would get an update. I would not fly again on Lufthansa."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good snack. Helpful crew. We needed extra assistance and staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "No negative comments."
Pros: "Lufthansa has it all together and knows how to fly. I recommend to everyone!"
Pros: "Good variety of on-board entertainment"
Cons: "We were in last row of our section of the plane and space was very cramped, especially for my 6'1" husband. It was not a very physically comfortable flight."
Pros: "The crew helped my mom very much with her ansiery and were with her at all times."
Cons: "I bought the flight for my mom and she is handicap, the flight got delayed and they wanted to leave her in Frankfurt for 2 days because there was no more flights to the States, in the end they found a flight to Washington DC, she was coming to Miami. She is an old woman who gets lost and I had to order assistance for her, in Washington DC they opened her bags after that they lost the bags, she had medication on them and it was a nightmare to get them back. Im really upset and I don’t think That I’m going to book with this aero line again."
Cons: "No bridge in Frankfurt - long taxi and then 15 minute bus ride to the terminal; had to go through security again; mad dash to catch connecting flight (which also had the 15 minute drive to the plane - again, no gate in the terminal! Shambles!"
Pros: "Except the 3-4 hours gap of bringing water the flight was quite pleasant"
Cons: "Well-known German punctuality is a myth! We spent 1.5 hours on the plane waiting take off both ways!"
Cons: "I gave up my seat to permit an elderly couple to sit together There was an open aisle seat forward from where I was to sit and was not allowed to sit there, instead I sat i na middle seat One good deed did not another"
Pros: "My flight from Budapest took off hour later then scheduled. We landed in Munich only ten minutes before the international flight's take off to San Francisco. Upon the Munich landing, eight of us were escorted on a special bus, with a special pass controll and on special routs to make sure we get on the plane on time. Our laggage managed to get on the same plane as well. Thank you Lufthansa!"
Pros: "My first time flying with Lufthansa was outstanding. Great service, super friendly and ready to please. Appreciated the free adult beverages and frequent availability of water during the long, dehydrating flight. In-flight movies were fun to pass the time."
Cons: "Disembarked the plane in a lot and had to shuttle back to the terminal. Not a big issue but much prefer disembarking at the terminal."
Cons: "None of the flights arrived on schedule. That caused other problems. Overall the trip was terrible. Not sure if I will fly lufthansa again nor recommen."
Pros: "online booking"
Cons: "There is no one at Kayak to answer questions on weekends. Message says "call back during 'regular' business hours" but does not specify what that means, nor what time zone they are in. (BTW, most people travel on weekends so ya may want to consider providing customer service then...duh). When I finally was able to reach someone in order to upgrage to Premium Economy, they could not help me but said they would send an email with an answer to how much that would cost. The email never came. I will never book with Kayak again."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was good and the crew was very nice, my flight was early and the boarding was very efficient. The meal was simple but good and warm. The plane was very new and clean."
Cons: "The seats could've been wider with more leg room, I ended up slightly squished for my flight which was from Boston to Munich"
Cons: "Do not choose this Airline by any means."
Pros: "Great crew. Very comfortable flight, good food. On schedule"
Cons: "They had grabbed my carry-on luggage at the gate. I specifically told the gate agents that I put heirloom plates that used to belong to my mother in my carry-on. They assured me it would be handled properly. Well this promise turned out to be lie. The plates were broken. Even though they were wrapped. I am sad and angry. My carry-on was small and light. There was no reason that it should be singled out in the first place. Now what?"
Pros: "The crew was working hard, most were extremely nice and helpful. Their service was excellent. I enjoyed the food and drinks. The plane was clean and looked well-maintained. Most of the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Flight from Munich to Charlotte: I do not fly that frequently (just only about 1 or 2 times per year - usually with Lufthansa) so I had no idea that as an Economy class passenger I cannot use the Business class bathroom. I admit my mistake for violating this etiquette. There was no line formed so I just used it, but as I was leaving the toilet a stewardess grabbed my arm and sternly made me aware of my trespassing. She was very professional and I believe it was not her intention; however, she made me feel very stupid for not realizing that the Business class toiled is for the Business class customers only. Don't get me wrong, if I paid premium for my fare I would probably expect less crowded toilets too. In my opinion, this unwritten rule should be made more explicit to the Economy class passengers, as nobody likes to feel embarrassed by mistakenly wandering into an exclusive club they don't belong to. I know there are separating curtains, but they were open. I saw a line forming in the Economy section so my next instinct was to go a different direction, which led me to the Business section. I really needed to use the bathroom, so I did not think of the proper etiquette at the moment."
Pros: "Food and overall service"
Pros: "Everything seemed to run smoothly."
Cons: "No issues this leg"
Pros: "Lufthansa's staff and service are second to none."
Pros: "Nice flight. Wish all flights were as nice as this."
Cons: "They maintain the economy class nearly at 30 degC...hot."
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Staff was rude at the terminals and a lot of frowning faces on the plane. My seat was constantly bumped by crew with no acknowledgement. The boarding was confusing and disorganized to the point the boarding agent was not sure which gate handled which group ( they use 2 for these big planes)and kept calling out the wrong information. Passengers could not believe it. Tight seats for an overseas flight."
Pros: "From Munich to Toronto, it was great, especially being seated where I wanted, the window. I was able to watch great movies too, and during a 9hr flight, thats really nice."
Cons: "The food could be better. Too salty. But it is better than nothing and it was hot! So that was good."
Cons: "I AM A HANDICAPPED CUSTOMER. MY FIRST FLIGHT FROM BOLOGNA TO FRANKFORT WAS FINE. NO PROBLEMS. WHEN WE LANDED IN FRANKFORT THEY WOULD NOT LET ME OFF THE PLANE SINCE THERE WAS AN ERROR HAVING A WHEELCHAIR AND A LIFT TO MEET THE PLANE. I SAT ON THE PLANE FOR 45 MINUTES BEFORE THE ISSUE WAS RESOLVED. I GOT TO THE TERMINAL AND WE WATCHED AS THE PILOT CLOSED THE DOORS OF OUR CONNECTING FLIGHT 35 MINUTES PRIOR TO TAKE OFF. NEEDLESS TO SAY WE MISSED THAT FLIGHT. WE WERE BOOKED ON A LATER FLIGHT WITH UNITED. THIS CREATED MORE PROBLEMS THAN I HAVE SPACE TO WRITE. I AM 70 YEARS OLD AND HANDICAPPED. YOUR INCOMPETENCE CAUSED MY WIFE AND I NUMEROUS PROBLEMS I WILL NEVER FLY YOUR AIRLINE AGAIN. I KNOW THIS WILL FALL ON DEAF EARS. I WOULD APPRECIATE A RESPONSE."
Pros: "Good entertainment options, large bathroom area on a lower level"
Cons: "Food options and space"
Pros: "Organized boarding, service, left on time"
Cons: "No gluten-free food when they served the food. They said that they didn't serve gluten-free food on short flights, but this was two and a half hours. Also, I had asked for a gluten-free meal when I booked my flight. Not good in today's world, when quite a few people have to eat gluten-free. (I am a medical doctor.)"
