Pros: "Overall it was a great experience."
Cons: "The head rests were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Overall good experience. I don't expect much for food on planes and dinner was acceptable."
Pros: "I've flown on many different airlines since I was 10 years old and hands down this Lufthansa flight was the best and smoothest flight I have ever experienced. First of all, the plane was very comfortable and had good leg room. The flight staff were all extremely courteous and attentive. There was one point where I was reading in the dark and the crew member asked if I wanted the light turned on to read! Normally I don't sleep on flights, and the same crew member asked if I wanted ice cream since I don't feel like sleeping. The crew seemed to have this magic ability to make the flight more comfortable without the passenger having to even think about it, or try to ask for extra service. All of the crew were just very outstanding and organized throughout the entire flight, they were all generally very helpful and kind. By the time I got off the 14 hour flight, I didn't feel even the slightest bit tired or anxious, I was able to spend time with my friends in Budapest upon landing and stay out till 2 am without having to sleep or rest because the flight was so good."
Cons: "I took Lufthansa round-trip from the US to Italy. One of the worst long-trip flying experiences I've had. Bad airplanes, with even smaller seats than US carriers, terrible service (attendants were not friendly or pleasant), terrible food. On one of the long flights, the cabin temperature was 75F and passengers were perspiring the whole flight. I will not take Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Very small cramped seats in business class. Would not fly again."
Pros: "I liked food, entertainment on board, atmosphere, professional crew, arrival on time"
Pros: "Even though flight was delayed the crew helped us to be comfortable .. Food was great and service is commendable. Special thanks to frankfurt crew member to guide and help us to catch our connecting flight."

Pros: "Very good cotimer service"
Pros: "Great crew"

Pros: "We were early"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Everything is fine"
Cons: "Seat didn’t recline..."
Pros: "The staff was amazing. Took care of the flight well."
Cons: "The seats that I purchased were “premium economy” the only thing premium was the price I have flown premium with other airlines and there is a difference in leg room and seat size. There was none on this flight. The seats were the same size and room as regular economy. Not what I paid for. I will never fly BA again."
Cons: "The most comfortable flight of all. Very pleased"
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly crew, good food"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Cons: "They took too long for check in. The crew was confused"
Cons: "Loved the flight however wished the food selection was better in business call. On the way to Mumbai the option and choice was better and tasted good. I was not impressed with selection and taste it could have been better."
Cons: "At Heathrow, the boarding agents kept calling few passengers without letting the rest of the passengers know what was going on. Also the boarding was delayed without giving specific reason almost 50 min later. Finallly they said the boarding was delayed to catering and cleanning, which I could not believe since the plane has been on a tarmac close to an hour. Passengers were lining up to board, but one of the gate agent kept asking to sit down without giving any reason. Probable one of the worst boarding experience I have ever had in international flights."
Pros: "Excellent crew and good food."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "We never got there."
Pros: "Food was great, staff was so sweet and patient"
Cons: "Never on time, always late, always either missing my connections or running throug the airport"

Pros: "Excellent food and service!"
Pros: "Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable staff. Good light supper."
Cons: "Flew into 1 concourse a few minutes late had to go through security checks and run to make boarding in another concourse. No place to use the restroom along the way, I will avoid Heathrow at all costs when traveling in the future."
Pros: "No fuss, the cost benifit is perfect for short distances flights"
Cons: "One of the planes was a A321, room for legs was short"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very nice, pilot announcements clearly audible"
Cons: "Check-in/bag drop area at Berlin TXL is poorly organized. Need an attendant to help with line management. No free snack on board — not even a peanut or a pretzel! Purchase only."
Pros: "Texting about lost bag, fast information"
Cons: "There not enough time for right connections if always delayed, bags are not at the destinatiion, no drinking water without ovepriced purchase on the plane from London to Prague,"

Cons: "4-hour delay, switched to other flight. Luckily I wasn't in too much of a rush."
Pros: "Airline accommodated the delay with free room and meal voucher."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 24 hours. Text message was sent on route that the flight was on time. Mechanical problems."
Pros: "Surprisingly comfortable seats for economy"
Cons: "Again rude personnel. Paying for water after flying over 9hrs from USA was not cool."
Cons: "BA lost one of my checked bags and made it impossible to get help. Called numbers over 30 hour period in both destination city and BA phone numbers for lost baggage and no one answered. I had to travel back to the airport counter to deal with agents that basically told me there were thousands of bags in the warehouse and that the bag May or May not eventually turn up."
Cons: "This seems like an old plane. Poor quality of screen to watch movies and very small selection of movies. No charging spot to plug and charge our phones. This was a long trip and these two elements are important to make the trip enjoyable."
Pros: "Staff were very busy as flight was full but still managed to be upbeat, funny and polite which always makes things nicer."
Cons: "Really frustrating that the passenger behind me spent most of the night waking me up jabbing the screen on the back of my chair- not much sleep was had . Not directly BA's fault but it would help if use of the REMOTE CONTROL was actively promoted to people- or get rid of the touch screen???. Being typical British I didn't complain there and then :/"
Cons: "Seat comfort in Business Class worse than low cost airlines Crew rude and aloft Food terrible"
Cons: "I called them for luggage I have I can take 20 3KG in the end in the airport I haw to pay for my language"
Pros: "I loved the side compartment next to my seat in the upper deck of the airbus. This was an amazing airplane to fly in and I hope someday to afford the opportunity to experience First class. The cabin crew was very attentive and our attendant, in particular, was helpful. He made sure that we had our special meal and the whole staff was very attentive."
Pros: "Very smooth security and boarding process at Gatwick. It was worth the extra $11 to have pre-selected my seat, 9C, in the second row of Coach on the aisle. The seating was a bit cramped, and the flight was full, but being up front made everything more pleasant. The landing process in Valencia went very well, and the metro to the town center was very efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendants had some problems initially with the electronic card reader for taking payments for food and beverage. It's always a bit jarring to me to be onboard an airplane where there's not a single complimentary beverage option, but I know it's common on many non-US carriers."
Pros: "We arrive twenty minutes early."
Cons: "We lost a half hour because of defective equipment and had to exist the back of the plane on to the runway."

Cons: "Wheel chair assistance was very very bad. Airport crew made my parents to walk around 2 miles while changing the gates in London airport."
Pros: "Courteous cabin crew"
Cons: "Delays both before takeoff and after landing. Unorganized boarding--what happened to the old idea of boarding from the back of the aircraft forward?? Making all passengers shuffle through a long queue is really stupid."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Waits, long wait for baggage, surly crew."
Cons: "The only International flight I ever paid extra for one 2nd baggage. That took away my savings on ticket, and never going to fly on British airways as long as they charge for 2nd checked in baggage."
Cons: "Computer malfunction cased for tons of flight delays and cancellations making for a long and not pleasant experience"
Pros: "Check in, flight was on time"
Cons: "The time it takes for getting from 5 to 3. Almost missed my plane on the trip in."

Pros: "The onboard crew was great and the agent at the Dulles airport who helped with my ticket was great (don’t remember her name)."
Cons: "I couldn’t upgrade my seat since my ticket is ‘restricted’ even though I am willing to pay more for another seat. I am a tall person and was assigned a middle seat for a 7.5 hour flight. Flight was also delayed getting into Munich so I missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "Delayed boarding, no room in overhead bins even after being charged extra for carryon and had to stuff it at my feet, even at row 15, after being charged more for that too."

Pros: "Food was actually quite decent"

Cons: "The unplanned layover in HNL was very poorly handled."
Cons: "Leaving on time"
Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Pros: "Drastically better"
Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."
Cons: "Check in clerk was mean nasty and said several times we could not fly because we didn’t have our tickets rather then helping us use the airport printer to print our tickets she said you can’t print you ticket until you show me your ticket. She should be fired it was united airlines won’t fly them again"

Pros: "My flight attendant was great. She was very fast."

Cons: "No food. Had the back row so I couldn't recline."
Pros: "Rare that you can sit in any seat A huge jet, only 26 passengers Smooth flight Left early Arrived early *****"
Cons: "Poor customer service from the begging to end on day of arrival Crew had poor attitude gave wrong information about bag prices. When asked they told me there was a misunderstanding. on our way to El Salvador. Due to weather we had to stop at guatemla a lot of people were ready to walk around since a 3 hour flight became a 6 just sitting around a attendant was very disrespectful towards an older lady told her to get out her way and moved her to the side. Me and another gentleman look at eachother and couldn't believe it"
Cons: "Delays. Miscommunication."
Pros: "The crew waited until everyone was boarded and we never felt rushed. We made it to our destination 15 minutes early. Very little turbulence. Nice new seats with TVs in the headrest."
Cons: "My car seats didn't arrive in baggage claim. They sent us with a couple of dirty loaners. I am waiting for them to contact us about ours. I did not appreciate having to pay to watch cable TV. The seating could have allowed for more leg room."
Pros: "The flight went as expected"
Cons: "I did not get notice of a last minute Terminal change, and had to run to the gate, even though I was at the terminal 3 hours before my flight. I signed up for push notifications, texts, and email, but Igor no notice."

Cons: "You had to pay for internet service in order to watch the free movies."
Pros: "Great fly very attenty personal"
Pros: "- Flight arrived on-time - Well appointed terminals in ORD and SFO - Good cabin crew"
Cons: "- Economy seats are too small (I'm average sized). - United flights that are close to full never seem to have enough room for carry on luggage. This was no exception. As a result, people line up 45 minutes before the flight in order to get on first so they can claim overhead bin space. There should be a better way to manage this."
Cons: "Nothing is provided: you have to pay for everything, food and movies, paying a return ticket at 1000$ between Indy and Hawaii, I was expecting much more!!"
Pros: "The boarding process went smoothly and was on schedule."
Cons: "Overhead compartment filled up and it was hard funding space for my bag."

Pros: "Everything. We were held up in traffic and United was so accommodating. We were in awe"
