Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "It was great! The staff was very friendly and attentive!!"
Cons: "Serve little drinks like water, juices, soft drinks. The plastic cup is small and yet it is half filled. A can every meal would be nice."
Pros: "Excellent service and delicious food and clean."
Cons: "No wifi on board. Not many movies."
Pros: "On both of my long haul flights I had very nice, new planes to fly on which were very clean. Staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating despite having a huge number of people to attend to. Food was good when I ate it. Seats reclined very nicely and there was the most room I've had on a flight ever. Still cramped, but you take what you can get! Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "2 complaints I would pose. 1. If we're flying on a super long flight overnight, do you have to turn on every light in the pane to serve food? Can we not keep it kind of dim while literally everyone is trying to sleep? Also, why are you serving a meal at 3AM?! I know we took off 2 hours ago and people may want food before we get into the bulk of the trip, but it's 3AM! Everyone just wants to sleep and now the lights are on and you're offering me a full meal?! Believe me, it's great that you're trying to keep me fed, but come on, we've got 12 hours of flight left to go! 2. The movies offered were really sub par. The "new releases' only had a handful of movies I'd even heard of before and only like 3 I even cared to watch. The "movie classics" were the same way. Gotta step up your movie options when I'm trapped in your plane for 14 hours."
Pros: "Everyone was very nice."
Cons: "The food was a little odd but that might just have been Korean food."
Pros: "Once we were on board. the service was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 24hrs which is not the fault of Korean airlines however Boarding was so disorgainsed with no information on the process, almost no priority boarding. We were told that people with boarding passes of the original flight date had to wait for more recent passes. This led many to think that they would be kicked off the flight after waiting 24hrs. Once we did finally board we found that they had made a mistake and had to deboard a passenger resulting in an extra hour delay"
Pros: "Disclaimer: we flew business class. Regardless, our check-in was seamless, Incheon is a beautiful and easy airport, all the flight crew were responsive and pleasant. We flew China Eastern and dealt with Shanghai airport on our flight out and I would avoid doing that again at great cost!"
Pros: "Superb courtesy and attention."
Pros: "Korean Air staff was very nice and helped me as a disabled passenger."
Cons: "Was on a 777 both legs and they have very little padding in the seats which makes for a sore butt."

Pros: "great staff... treat you like a king"
Cons: "Very tight seating"
Pros: "The crew was nice and organized, polite, professionals, the airplan was clean. flight was on time too."
Cons: "The food did not include varieties, may be is good for korean people but not good for others, the dishes were plastics and foils which are not good for human consumption after being heated. I missed my flight from seoul to saigon because there was two flights with similar time, one with korea and the other with vietnam air, both with similar time but both are with different concourses , then , the ticket did not indicate the gate number , then the airport information operator directed me to the wrong gate resulting in missing my flight to saigon and being subject to penalties which all are not my mistakes. Please fix your system"

Pros: "Good time management"
Pros: "Flight that was not sold out!"
Cons: "Delayed takeoff again"
Pros: "The service and food is good"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that Korean Air's policy is to have the air temperature set at 24 Celsius. Who does that? Even in our homes, nobody has their temperature set so high, even in the cold weather months. It is ridiculous!!"

Pros: "Good legroom (6'1") in eco. Person in front of me reclined and I didn't feel cramped. The entertainment selection was limited but had some very recent US movies. Food was okay, but what can you expect in eco?"

Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable; food is good."

Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."
Pros: "So many movies to spend flight time with great crew"
Cons: "There are couple things. First of all, it was cold almost for everyone: everyone used a blanket, and some people asked for a second blanket. Secondly, I think that if this airline became the best airline in 2017, staff should care about their passengers’ stuff more than they do, so backpacks or suitcases don't lose parts or get crushed during flights. When I got my backpack back, I thought that someone had used it to play football. My backpack had lost some parts, and some pieces of it were torn!"
Pros: "Food was good and staff was friendly."
Cons: "Had to wait 3 hrs because of a system malfunction. And had a screaming toddler behind me the entire 13 hr ride. The headrest on the seats are very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Qatar Airlines has amazing service! And they have free internet!"
Cons: "The films are all sensored. And the free internet is only for 30 minutes."
Pros: "great service from flight attendnants."
Cons: "Old aircraft for flight from Doha to Nairobi, no personal entertainment etc."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Plane was excellent"
Cons: "Original schedule was changed from Sunday departure to Saturday without notifying us resulting in a 12 hour stay at Philadelphia and a one day loss of our scheduled trip. So far no explanation from webjet."
Pros: "Any time dining, excellent food offering, excellent drink offering, and excellent service. Unbeatable!"
Cons: "Lack of crowd control at the gate during boarding. It was hard to squeeze through for business class boarding."
Pros: "We loved everything. From the moment we walked into the plane we were blown away. Food, air hostesses,flight, you name it was great."
Cons: "We didn't like that our return flight was changed to a different airline. Cathay Pacific. My wife didn't like the service at all and keep complaining and comparing it to Qatar."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, from the check in process, to boarding, to flying 21 hours from Boston to Phuket with infant- we couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Everyone was so accommodating and helpful as we traveled with our 7 month old a lot g distance."
Pros: "Very Good Company"
Pros: "All around a great experience."
Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."
Pros: "Crew were helpful and not interefering in long flight"
Cons: "Flight from Qatar to Seoul was quite old I believe. USB on my chair did not work and media in LCD screens were not new enough. seats were quite old and not convenient for 10 hours flight."
Cons: "The airport did not have air conditioning, which was very annoying given the temperature outside was 30C."
Pros: "It was something unexpected"
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "Actually I can't even explain everything is good"
Pros: "Flight was on-time, crew was very friendly. The entertainment was very good, the food was o.k."

Pros: "Crew Service"
Cons: "If a customer has not ordered Vegeterian / Special meal earlier, the crew doesn't carry any extra meal."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Not that there is much to be done, but the passengers behind me had a small child and continued to ask me to move my seat and asked the flight attendant to ask me to move my seat up as well so that she and her grandson could have more room. However the gentleman in front of me had his seat back, so I was fairly uncomfortable for most of the 13 hour flight."
Pros: "Very comfortable seats with lots of space and pillows blankets and other ammenities. It was a 13 hour flight and the staff came by many timea with drinks and snacks"
Pros: "Flight was good. Cabin crew very good. Food good."
Cons: "Qatar Airways check in at Heathrow was a dis-organised shambles. Arrival at Qatar Airport passport control was even worse at 12.45 am. Long queues,very slow to move, police checking passports unbelievably slowly. Retina scanners should speed up the process. Why then take 5 minutes to check each passport? Poor advert for Qatar, after nearly an hour of queuing I would think most passengers wished they had gone somewhere else."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact that Qatar opened so late at the Abu Dhabi airport, nor did I appreciate that the woman who printed out my boarding pass royally screwed up and printed gate 8 , when in fact it was gate 3. That was total BS. Supposing I missed my flight due to her negligence ??"
Pros: "From start to finish the whole process with Qatar Airways was smooth and excellent."
Cons: "The seat cussion on the airplane is to hard for a 5+ hours flight. Not enough food for vegans"
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."

Pros: "Almost nothing"
Pros: "Food and drink options. Courteous."

Cons: "Food wasn’t great"
Pros: "Good food. Very clean bathrooms. Great service"
Pros: "The service and the entertainment options."

Pros: "To be honest I liked everything from the speed of boarding to food and entertainment systems. Seats were roomy too."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, best airline i have ever flown hands down. Best food, best service best everything."

Pros: "seat food and cabin crew"
Pros: "Very friendly and easy to talk to"
Cons: "The airplane was very warm"
Pros: "Check in staff were good. We departed on time."

Pros: "lots of legroom. courteous staff. bathroom is clean"
Cons: "everything is excellent"
Pros: "Great services. Seats are good."
Cons: "The queue to board was a little trying."
Pros: "Best flight I’ve ever been on!"
Cons: "It had just snowed 20” in Seattle, so we had a short delay."
Pros: "on-plane flight operation is very good"
Cons: "back-office support is very poor. for example they sent me an email before the departure date in Korean only."
Cons: "The plane was delayed about two hours by some excuse which was a connecting aircraft problem. Due to their incompetency I and my pickup person had to be strained at the airport about four hours. It was terrible. Hope it won't get this kind of delay when I go back to ICN. If that happens, I'll miss a flight back home to U S."
Pros: "Business class seats are a lot more comfortable than earlier versions."
Pros: "The check in staff, boarding staff and flight attendants were very kind and accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "We departed both legs of the flight - from Manila to Seoul, and Seoul to LA - about an hour late. That’s inexcusable! The food on both flights was adequate but certainly not tasty or delicious."
Pros: "The attendants were very nice and the food and drinks service was good (however, I believe I got sick from the food since I got food poisoning about 2-3 hours after landing from our 13 hour flight)."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable and the flight out did not have a footrest so my feet were dangling and got numb at times. Our return flight had a footrest and that felt much better."
Pros: "The Food was great! Asiana Airlines Economy Seats have more leg room than most airlines. Service was Excellent."
Cons: "We had just purchased coffee and the boarding agent told us that their policy was that we were not permitted to take hot coffee onto the aircraft. My guess is it had to do with safety. I've never been told this on any of the hundreds of flight i've been on traveling the world. It must be a South Korea thing."
Pros: "I loved the leg room and the pleasant classical music that was playing during boarding and exiting."
Cons: "I didn’t realize some of the food was going to be so spicy. Perhaps a bit of a warning next time would be greatly appreciated."
Pros: "Great food!"
Pros: "Not much. Plane was almost on time."
Cons: "Disgusting food, old plane with terrible seatback screens as well as movie selection."
Pros: "over all flight is great.landed safely"
Cons: "nothing much.just the food and entertainment not much option."
Pros: "It was nice to know that JetBlue and Asiana are connected. I did not need to claim and check my suitcase for the connecting flights anymore. The entertainment device was also nice."
Cons: "I think JFK rather than Asiana was the issue. It was quite cold inside the boarding area, and the waiting area happened to be unpleasant because of a lack of seats and the noise. The announcements before boarding happened to be annoying. Lavatory happened to become quite messy at the end of the flight."
Cons: "The entertainment is much under expected"
Cons: "They left my bags in Korea I had no change of clothes!! Arrived in the morning I was told my bags would show up later on at midnight!! So I missed my flight to an other island totally screwed my vacation!!!"
Pros: "Everything! Service awesome"
Pros: "The crew are the best and attention is also excellent"
Cons: "The seating is hard and is hard on your back, legs and neck. Movie selection is very little and not very good. The bathrooms should be periodically cleaned down and sanitized with a light solution to be and feel clean."
Pros: "Staff is friendly smiles and goes the extra step to insure comfort"
Cons: "You pay extra for a bulkhead and they place a bassinet in your personal space. Seats lack cushion on A380"

Pros: "Cleanliness, efficiency."
Cons: "Seat cushioning could be better for the long haul legs."
Pros: "We noticed we were seated together just before and they accommodated us at check-in and got us seats together. The food was good. They gave us nice little amenities (ear plugs, slippers, eye cover) and the food was good."
Pros: "They made sure everyone was happy with all service."
Pros: "Staff were excellent. They're the big part of the reason why we fly Asiana. American-owned airlines are rude, old and crabby."
Cons: "The food was hit or miss. Our first meal was ok. 2nd meal was just a sandwich which is not that great. The 3rd meal which was chicken was dry and tasteless. My husband and I couldn't eat it. It's like eating a styrofoam cup."
Pros: "crew was very professional and pleasant. Plane was in excellent condition comfortable and clean"
Pros: "No tv, no complimentary water no food no nothing The poorest experience ever"
Cons: "This company shouldn't be legally running It's a gigantic scam Didn't even know such a airline even existed"
Pros: "The flight attendant service were attentive unlike US counterparts."
Cons: "Air was centrally controlled and no individual seat air nozzle. So when you are hot there is no directional air nozzle. There's no power source. On the 777 plane. Movies were Korean."
Pros: "I didn't expect there to be a meal & in-flight movies on what I considered to be a relatively short flight. It was a nice treat!"
Cons: "More options for tv shows such more episodes for korean tv shows like running man. Etc."
Pros: "the service was amazing and the stewardesses so very attentive and polite / this was perhaps the airline with the best service i have ever had in economy class // i also like experiencing the very authenic korean food that was a choice at each meal //"
Cons: "the films and tv shows were a bit limited in selection but varied enough and were of good enough quality that i found myself kept entertained during the long flight /"
Pros: "I love the tv's and the cleanliness"
Cons: "I slept the whole time at the window seat so I wasn't distirbed so I didn't have any hiccups! Perfect flight"
Pros: "Great food Friendly staff Very affordable decent entertainment"
Cons: "Cramped and a little uncomfortable. Smaller person 5' 3" 145 lbs. Would probably be uncomfortable for people of larger girth. Leg room was great!"
Pros: "Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Seats on the small side."
Pros: "Nice enough crew."
Cons: "Terrible food. It is a waste. Better not to have it at all or just give some good snacks. Aircraft seemed unclean and old."
Pros: "Good food and entertainment. Crew was attentive and kind. Checkin was a breeze. Icheon airport is modern, comfortable and traveler focused."
Cons: "Economy class seats were hard to sleep in."
Cons: "No vegetarian option for meals like most other flights have these days. On the return flight I even tried to book one online and could not find where/how to do it. I also asked upon check in and was told it takes 2 days at least to request a veggie meal. This is really pathetic considering I'm flying from a part of the world that has a high Buddhist population."
Pros: "Quick boarding, on time, nice crew, clean plane"
Cons: "After 20 days of returning..movies option hadn't chnged."
Pros: "I actually didn't even feel the plane take off. Everything just worked. Seamless flight everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing perfect flight"
Cons: "Asiana Airline allowed a drunken passenger sit next to me. Everyone can smell and knew that he is drunken. The 1st thing he did after sitting was drinking alcohol from his pocket. Yes, one of the staff came to him and got the drink from him. But, he talked me for about 4hours nonstop and made me uncomfortable at all. Other passengers around me saw him because he talked too loud. I expected that they would offer me another sit and left him alone. During 10 hrs flight, I had 2 Tylenol capsules because of the smell of the alcohol from him. It was REALLY hard time for me to sit next to him during 10 hrs. DO NOT ALLOW A DRUNKEN PERSON TO GET ON A PLAIN FOR OTHERS."
Pros: "Seating on that Airbus was very comfortable with a lot of leg room and we sat in economy class. Food also was excellent."
Pros: "Flying with a partner, the two seater in economy was comfortable, good leg space, reasonable food , good service."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The seats had such little cushion that it made the flight extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was quite pleasant and friendly - very accomodating"
Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated, the food was only passable. The chocolate was nice"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Seats were decently comfortable - appreciated blanket and pillow for long haul flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system is dated. Screens froze often, were not very touch sensitive and the sound was pretty bad (on mine, would only provide sound to one ear, so I had to turn up other bc of poor quality and ended up w a headache.) Also, bathrooms were gross; ran out of paper and floors were "soiled""
Pros: "This was my first and last time I will ever fly with Swiss airline-it’s been 4 days and I still didn’t receive my baggage and I had all my medicines in them,that’s including my carry on bag too,because it was taking from me @ the gate and I was told I will get it at my final destination,which I didn"
Cons: "I just would like to get my baggage- which is been 4 days since my arrival and they can’t even tell me where they are at!!!...."
Cons: "The HVAC system was apparently defective and passengers in the mid-section of the plane, myself included, were bundled up in winter jackets and blankets."
Pros: "Even though we flew through turbulances the crew was able to manage their tasks. Plus beautiful stewardess."
Pros: "This was a very short flight. They gave you a great little snack and drink. Was a very smooth flight and the crew were very friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "Could not check in online because the system was down."
Pros: "The stewardesses were absolutely amazing, asking/ offering beverages in between main meals t/ out the whole flight! They were just doing their job above and beyond! Wonderful crew especially the girls in the section 30’s on the side FGJK, THANK YOU SO MUCH! YOU WERE AMAZING!"
Cons: "I had a carry-on sized bag which would have fit in the overhead compartment. I was told that it would not fit the Swiss Air compartment, thus was forced to check it at the gate. I expressed my concern that it would get lost (thus the reason I never opt to check bags) and was assured "They are very efficient in Zurich." When we arrived in Madrid, my bag was not at the carousel. I was told at Customer Service that it was on another flight, but that they could deliver it to my Airbnb between 4-7 pm. I had to wait there instead of enjoying my vacation to wait for my bag. The bag did not arrive until 10:30 pm. I did not have my clothes or belongings with me all day. Swiss Air in particular needs to update their overhead compartment regulations, as my bag definitely would have fit there, and could have avoided this entire situations."
Pros: ";Flight attendants very attentive;"
Cons: "Leg space far too tight; could barely move; Unable to see TV screen due to angle, even at max tilt; Food was inedible; perhaps acceptable as dog food; Toilet seat would not stay up for male to pee. Worst international aircraft I've ever experienced. Recommend upgrading before selling any more seats."
Pros: "I like service, plane..."
Cons: "I have anot her flight with the same airlines. I haven't took my ticket at the same time but since it's same airlines they should be able to connect my flights. I have to go borders and took my luggage and then I checked in again. This is waste of time"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Very attentive staff, good food and drinks."
Cons: "We paid for upgraded seats that were still very tight."
Pros: "The view out the window."
Cons: "Delayed, no leg room. No refeshments."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: ""Swiss" and punctuality are not anymore going together"
Pros: "Everything, but the lack of entertainment."
Cons: "The lack of entertainment."
Pros: "SwissAir is the best airline ever. Modern, comfortable plane with space - excellent for long haul trips. Zurich is also a great airport in which to change planes."
Pros: "Online check-in was easy, boarding was smooth, and time on the flight seemed to go by quickly. Seats were a little too close together in economy to fully relax but that's the nature of economy seating. The dinner was very tasty, crew was friendly."
Cons: "My seat-back entertainment system did not work, but I had not planned to use it anyway. For the other three members of my family it did work, but not very well. Fortunately they had other options they brought with them."
Pros: "Swiss is famous for the punctuality, I actually love the airport too in Zurich, is super clean and modern, very efficient. Food on board was great in Economy as well!"
Cons: "the seats are not spacious enough. I barely had the seats in front on my basically on my laps.. a little bit too claustrophobic!"
Cons: "I didn't get my kosher food that I ordered"
Pros: "Food was good and staff was nice."
Cons: "Touch screens didn't work very well, poor entertainment selection compared to other airlines, poor sound quality"
Pros: "The flight was perfect until we hit horrible turbulence. 1 out of every 4 people was throwing up. We had to redirect to Milan."
Cons: "Swiss air is completely inept at handling a very normal reroute due to weather. 200 displaced people are standing in line. I’ve been here 5 hours and have not heard a word of announcement from them, our questions are rudely thwarted, and they continue to take half-an-hour to an hour per person with uncertain results. Give use new flights or a hotel."
Pros: "The service of snacks during the flight. My suggestion to change seating was followed by a adequate replacement. I think I will add sparkling/distilled water to my list of water choices."
Pros: "Service was great staff very attentive food was good and crew makes sure you are never hungry or thristy"
Cons: "It was a 11 hour flight and coach seats too small to sleep"
Cons: "Booked four flights from Zurich to Prague, but plans changed. No way to get a refund or cancellation although I tried two weeks beforehand. Disappointing to say the least."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, planes was very clean, the food was excellent and the staff was friendly."
Cons: "We did not receive the baby pram after landing. Needed to pick it up at the baggage claim."
Cons: "Warm breakfast in coach would be appreciated, but i understand it is just coach."
Pros: "I had no idea i would be charged for just one check in bag!"
Cons: "I had no idea i would be charged for checked in bag! Scam!"
Cons: "Everything was ok except that confusion we had while ticketing. Although we have been assigned on on carrier the flight was operated by a different one, which was not cleared in the purchase paper."
Pros: "They put us in a nice hotel"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 1 hour and it was overbooked. So they put us on a united flight for today. This flight is also overbooked."
Cons: "Because we missed our flight due to delays in Barcelona we Had to wait more than 4 hours for a next flight. Afterwards we were sitting separate."
Pros: "The seat, the airport, the service"
Cons: "The tight connection"
Pros: "Flight was not full and I was able to have several seats to spread out"
Pros: "Both the food and service were fantastic. A great choice of mid flight entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was very nice & humble"
Cons: "Food quality could be better it was tasteless very low standards, & boarding crew in Chicago or in Mumbai needs training because they don't want to give you a choice for food or the seat From Zurich to India & they runout off Nonveg food & crew was telling they have only veg take it or leave it samething Zurich to Chicago if the boarding crew do write thing then this could be avoided ."
Pros: "Very clean"

Pros: "Coke Zero was available."
Cons: "Limited selection of movies and tv shows and only one food option."
Cons: "person behind me wouldn't allow my seat to recline and was constantly pushing/kicking my seat. I notified crew, but nothing was done about it."
Pros: "The flight was quick. Overall a smooth and pleasant one. I didn't have any real interaction with the crew except to exchange the usual pleasantries of saying hello and goodbye. So to be fair, I can't rate the level of service provided."
Cons: "The flight was fine, unfortunately, there was nowhere to sit at the gate. The majority of passengers stood about waiting or sitting on the floor since the few seats located at the gate had been taken. A five or 10 minute wait would have been one thing, but a 45 minute wait is another, particularly if there are older passengers or small children who have to wait."
Pros: "The flight experience was efficient and secure; that's good. Staff generally professional."
Cons: "The seats were too small, and the food wasn't good enough, especially the 'salad' which consisted of some moderately old browned lettuce with no tomatoes. Happened on my flight back as well. The one time when I thought the staff faltered was when I hit the paige attendant button, and noone came for 25 mins. I ended up walking to the back of the plane and asking for water myself. I also thought some of the materials used in the plane were cheap, like the foldout tables on the back of the seat, the pillow covers, and the headphones (one of which broke midway). The headphones don't cover the noise of the jet in flight very well."
Pros: "The seats The crew"
Cons: "Delayed on two flights Too hot on the first flight despite a number of people complaining"
Pros: "Polite cabin crew. Quick check- in at JFK"
Cons: "Inability to add TSA pre-check to my profile. Very slow check- in process in Geneva. Cramped seating ."

Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew"
Cons: "There was no inflight entertainment of any kind."
Cons: "We didn't had entertainment"
Pros: "Doing a fantastic job keep on"
Cons: "Waiting so long in the security check line. Food could be better."

Cons: "Turbines did not start up initially. 1h delay."
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional, courteous, attentive, and the only parts of this experience that made this flight bearable."
Cons: "My partner and I orginially selected a window and middle seat. When we boarded the plane we were switched to the two middle seats of a 4 seat row. Honouring our original requests would have made a world of difference. If Lufthansa cannot do this much then I do not want to fly with them."
Pros: "Service was excellent, food was good, everyone was friendly and nice."
Cons: "Everything was OK."
Pros: "It was a great airline! I flew economy but still was very comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't have a long enough layover in Chicago and ended up missing my next flight. At least an hour and a half should be allotted going through customs in O'Hare. Then an additional 2 hours to recheck bags and get across the airport. This also allows extra time for delays."
Pros: "Crew, food and comfort was good"
Pros: "We left DFW in extremely hot weather. The ground crew managed the boarding to keep everyone out of the hot tunnel entry as long as possible. Even through there was a delay in boarding already, the crew kept us well informed. The cabin crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Smooth flight and still made it to our connecting flight on time."
Cons: "Leg room in coach is really cramped but that is all airlines unfortunately."
Cons: "Airbus was warm. There were no personal vents on the plan. Made for a very long and warm/hot flight. Other than that. The flight was good."
Pros: "Great customer service at check in window, very comfortable and clean airplane, very good cabin crew..overall highly satisfied"

Cons: "There was nothing I did not like about my flight"
Pros: "I enjoyed how smooth the whole flying went in the Lufthansa plane, also how quite was inside the plane compare to other airlines airplanes. I love the leg room in the plane. I impressed with the level of commitment to take passenger out the airport on time. It has definitely one of the smoothest and nice plane I have ever been so far."
Cons: "The pilot when landing landed too fast and the plane lost its balance for a second but other than that everything was great."
Cons: "It seemed llike the boarding was rushed and a bit hectic."
Pros: "The flight attendants were always friendly and attentive. No comparison to some other airlines I have flown with. Food was excellent and entertainment as well. Boarding went great especially when considering that the capacity of the plane is for 440 passengers."

Pros: "Everything is great,will fly more with u people"
Pros: "Flight attendant was very helpful. She went out of her way to bring me a special tea. Large selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Food could've had more healthier choices. Also, kid-friendly food would've been a plus. Not enough leg room. Headphones were only working for one ear which is really bad for the ears. Air conditioning was really turned on really high and gave me a headache and the sniffles. I started throwing up during landing time. Horrible."
Cons: "Food was pretty bad"
Cons: "The connecting times between the flights was very tight. Especially as the line for the passport check in Frankfurt was so long. And then the gate was so far away. A mad dash. Stressful."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and efficient, and the entertainment system was modern."
Cons: "The pilot didn't get us over the intercom even once. No communication at all from the cockpit. Staff was ok, but not very friendly. Seats were very close together in my row (30)… but other rows had seats with more legroom m."
Cons: "Lufthansa does not honor frequent flyer statuses of any of their alliance partners in regards to seat upgrades. Being 6'4", the ability to upgrade to economy plus/premium is important on long-haul flights. Everything else about Lufthansa is excellent, but I will not book with Lufthansa for long flights anymore because of this. I'll stick with United from now on."
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
