We had 1h delay. We waited in the place for the whole time.

Cons: "Nothing stands out - so basically no comment."
Pros: "Turkish do a good job of giving you a good service for your money."

Pros: "The Airbus is such an extremely "customer oriented' airplane."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful & friendly. Cabin was well pressurized."
Pros: "The crew were generally hospitable and courteous though not well informed. The entertainment choices were varied and enough. The meals were warm. Turbulence was well managed by crew and pilot. The toilets were clean."
Cons: "Flight was late, leaving less time to board connecting flight. The blanket was too small. The food and wine were below standards. The leg rests were absent and not enough room to spread legs. The basket in front too narrow and tight to put in anything. The charging unit for computer/mobile did not function. No clear instructions or help to board next connecting flight either through system or crew."
Pros: "i like because can interline from qatar airways and baggage through as well. so i do not need to check in again."
Cons: "They have canceled my flight even though I have booked it long time ago. They climed its because they have overbooked the flight. Crew was rude and short tempered, didn't understand the urgency of having to go to that flight"

Pros: "Boarding process started early and was efficient. Short flight so not much to say."

Pros: "The crew was excellent, the food good."
Cons: "The entertainment system, in three out of four long flights, did not work. In the one that "worked", the sound was terrible and this made the experience totally unsatisfactory. A major airline should avoid this."

Very amazing flight"

Cons: "Excellent"
Pros: "the flight from Istanbul to the U.S. was amazing, I watch 3 great movies and some wonderful meals. Even though I,flew economy I,felt like it was business class - foot rest pillow and blanket and they hand out hot towels and packs with toothbrushes and socks and slippers. I will definitely. Fly. Turkish Air again based on,this very positive experience"

Pros: "The crew on this flight were excellent professional and friendly. They were also very patient. The best part of the trip."
Cons: "The food needs major improvement. What has happened to Lufthansa??? Other people on other flights with Lufthansa complain bitterly about the food. It has gone down hill. People should not be dreaming of Virgin Atlantic food while on a flight with Lufthansa!"

Cons: "The plane felt slightly outdated and was pretty loud the first part of the flight"

Cons: "Paid for Wifi. Marginal performance at best."
Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."
Cons: "You, Kayak, sold me economy tickets. When I checked in online I saw it for the first time that our tickets were Economy Light. So even though we are Frequent Flyers, we payed $220 for three checkin luggages. I intend to dispute this case."
Cons: "I din't like the fact that Lufhtansa company uses double standards for the countries where they have their flights. From USA, San Jose, Ca, to Frankfurt, Germany everything was good (flight on 08/31/2018 - 09/01/2018). They have been very profesional, beganing wih the boarding time untill the arrival in Frankfurt. The flight to Romania was a different story. They haven't been very professional at all. The flight had a delay and nobody said a word. It was just a clerck there who didn't tell to the Lufthansa passengers for a while anything about our delay. So, finally, he said after 15-20 minutes that our fligt will be later, 20 minutes, than the scheduled time on our tickets. They seemed do not care too much about the Romanian passengers."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "getting fine from DC to Munchen and Munchen to Bucharest, 7 h delayed but we get to Romania. - when waiting for the luggages, guess what? Both luggages are missing. -made the complainment, now we are waiting to show up in Romania and to be delivered at home. -went to pick up the rental car, because of the plane delay, they gave our car away. -after trying several companies, we found a car, 3 times more expensive, but we have a car....yeeyy"
Cons: "Very tide space made it impossible to survive 8h flight for a small person like me. Seats are to small and put to close together. I can’t imagine how a tall man can seat comfortably. All passengers around me complained about that. Boarding should be in groups not everybody at the same time. Although the flight was perfect and staff very nice the tide space makes me try another airline for my next trip"
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing and the overall experience was great."
Pros: "The food was pretty decent."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and do not recline. The plane was old. No entertainment. For the money look elsewhere."
Pros: "Everything was excellent, there was no entertainment but wasn't needed because it was a short flight"
Cons: "We got there 15 minutes late, which isn't that bad but I had a connection flight and it was very pressed to get to it"
Pros: "Cabin was clean"
Cons: "Boarding and airpot staff were horrible: rude, chaotic experience especially in Munich and Frankfurt. Main issue was rude staff... No concept of customer service ."
Pros: "Excellent service during the two hour trip. No complaints whatsoever!"
Cons: "No headrest screens for entertainment but I had my phone and downloaded movies and shoes prior to leaving the US."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Food was good. Flight was on time, everything went smoothly"
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Food use to be better"
Pros: "W we’re a few minutes late and they waited for us. We truly appreciate their cooperation. 5 strat services."
Pros: "The boarding process was very fast and smooth"
Cons: "The seating space is very tight, more space is needed specially for tall people."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew."
Pros: "Very nice personals, I'm so happy."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Individual screens for all seats with a varied selection of entertainment options. Plenty of room under the seat for my carry-on. (It helped that no one was in the seat next to me.) Beverages were offered frequently. Smooth flight, smooth landing."
Cons: "It seemed llike the boarding was rushed and a bit hectic."
Pros: "Boarding efficient. Chicago counter very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Some flight attendants friendly and helpful, others not so much Don't change your mind about an item or next time attendant will ignore you. If the customer speaks English, do not assume they don't understand German - so please treat your passengers well. Food was not good, have had better on Lufthansa"
Cons: "Didn't happen yet."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats was un confotble"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Fraud United and Lufthansa"
Cons: "We missed this flight because previous flight from Germany was late. After running like mad people thru the Frankfurt airport- we only found out they have left - many people missed the flight!"
Pros: "N-o entertainment"
Cons: "All"
Cons: "There is no entertainment so I do not know it should be rates."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, smooth flight ( great pilots)"
Cons: "Food was carb heavy. I wish you would offer more protein and vegetable choices."
Pros: "The crew was professional and cordial. For some reason the entire AV system needed to be rebooted which required at least 15 minutes."
Cons: "There was supposed to be a meal and a snack on this flight. There was a good meal but the "snack" was a pack of pretzels. I think Lufthansa's partner AC could do a little better. I think the drinks cart should precede the food cart. I did not receive my drink until 3/4 of the way through my meal."
Cons: "Meals served in the 2nd flight wasnt up to the mark."
Pros: "United airlines a319 was quite shakey felt uncomfortable whereas the Lufthansa connection with the a320 was way better only a bit shakey but felt comfortable and enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "United airlines connection was quite bad. Was 15 min late but didn't really mind it"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "I fleweconomy. Flight on time. Boarding was quick. Food is so so bordering to poor. On the plus side the portion was small and is good when want to go on diet."
Pros: "The plane was parked away from the gate. We boarded the service bus to get there 20 minutes before departure time. But it took more than 20 minutes while mid way waiting for clearance to leave for the plane. The service bus did not turn on the AC while we waited even though we complained. We were suffocating. There was no entertainment on the plane."
Pros: "flight was on time and the crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Plane was"
Pros: "Appreciate the entertainment options and the crew did an excellent job ensuring that we all were as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Wish there were individual air vents that could be used to help cool off those of us who were hot. Really did not like the hour we sat on the runway waiting for a gate at O'Hare. No entertainment, no bathrooms, no getting up to stretch our legs and it got hot. While not necessarily the airlines fault, it was a sour end to an otherwise good flight."
Pros: "Good quality: crew, equipment, customer service"
Cons: "Frankfurt airport: Had to walk for an hour to get from gate to gate. I was getting off an international flight and onto another international flight. International gates are usually closer than that. On the flight: 1. The armrests pull up, which is great if you're traveling with family or a significant other. But, in my case, it was an overweight and obese lady, who didn't fit in her seat and just slipped into half of mine. I was stuck with half a seat with her arm bumping mine for a 12-hour flight. I landed with a bruised arm. It was a round trip flight. When I had submitted a complaint, Lufthansa refunded me a 100$, which is nice of them, but I think they should have upgraded me for my return flight instead to make up for the first flight being uncomfortable. 2. I paid for the internet service and was charged double for it. Again, had to submit a complaint and was refunded the money. Check-in: The online system wouldn't allow me to check in online because my passport wasn't biometric."
Cons: "2.5 h delay"
Pros: "lufthansa always on time, relatively comfortable economy seat with relatively enough leg room for a larger person. food was pretty good. no problems checking in. staff mostly friendly. the germans are efficient."
Cons: "one very rude flight attendant, the others were nice."
Pros: "Entertainment options were good and varied."
Cons: "We were significantly delayed on take-off, landing, and taxi to our gate, and the staff was very rude about the whole ordeal. One flight attended shouted at us over the intercom several times. I won't be flying Lufthansa again. The food was inedible and the seats were horrible."
