The crew was courteous and efficient. There was no entertainment or liquor service on this short international flight.

It was pretty good overall. I just wish the crew didn't have to interrupt you every five seconds to ask you if you wanted anything, I mean that's what the help button is for. When someone is tired and sleepy and still getting their bearings, turning on DND button is maybe not the first thing on their mind.

Boarding procedures are very tiring. We have to clear security twice for our connecting flights from Doha. Also every time we board flights we have to show boarding passes 5-6 times.

I didn't understand why I got dropped off at departures on exiting the plane at Doha aiport. I had to find my own way to immigration/baggage reclaim which wasn't easy as staff in the departure section just tell you ti scan your boarding pass. This was very poor b qatar Airways. I spent 2 hours soyung this out and once I got to get my suitcase it was delayed. So instead of getting to the hotel at about midnight I got there at three in the morning. I wonder why I upgraded to business?

Excellent will be flying again in May with Qatar. to Botswana.

I had never seen any cabin crews behaving like that. They are not at all professionally fit for this job

Other than low space, which is the problem with all airlines for economy class, the flight was excellent.

It was the terrific, I was promoted to businessman class, and the service was amazing.

Luggage handling was very very bad. Damaged my new Calvin Klein bag and delayed another. Still did not get it since 2 days. Worst airlines and service.

Not so good. Issues with seat assignments, unruly lines during check-in, half a sandwich on an international flight. I was originally supposed to be on Qatar airways, but it was switched to Indigo after I bought my tickets. They wouldn't even let me get seat assignments from the US to Mumbai. I was automatically assigned seats, and a middle one at that. Terrible.

Short flight. Needed a smart phone to watch any movie.

Have watched 90% of the movies need to update more movies for the long haul

After flying Quantas (Prem Econ - SYD-SFO) which was Spectacular, we boarded AA flight SFO/PHL.. Prem Econ was NOT available on this flight so we were stuck in Econ - even though we paid $2600 EACH/ONE WAY for this ticket. I even had to BUY extra legroom seats - this AT LEAST should have been included on the AA flight. There were no screens in seatbacks, forcing passengers to use phones for entertainment. No water bottles were provided - only cups of water. The Quantas flight was FAR superior to the AA flight - even though we purchased Prem Econ for the FULL trip....

The plane was new (<6mos old) and was very well appointed. Lots of places to store things/plenty of legroom/comfortable seats/great blankets and headsets. Food was very good too. And crew were all very friendly and accommodating. Great trip!

I thought the overall standard in Premium Economy was very good indeed.

We were seated in the furthest back row of the plane. Our seats seemed to be the only ones that didn't recline, and our seat row was also closer to the seats in front of us than any other route. I'm a tall man, and this made the long overnight flight extremely uncomfortable and near impossible to sleep on. There was nothing indicated in booking that this row was tighter than the others.

couldn't work out how to work entertainment. seats a bit cramped.

Overall a positive experience. As long as you are not connecting-I found the discount offered by Kayak and the customer service to be very good.

Short transfer time in Sydney and ground staff were excellent in assisting in clearing through a chaotic transfer security checking.

Qantas onboard service/meals has degenerated to Budget airline standard transferred to Emirates in Sydney which only highlighted Qantas decline

I’m very disappointed, to fly into an airplane for 10 straight hours, and not having a TV even though when I put the ticket I was told that I will have entertainment for the TV. Very disappointed.

Helpful steward. Allowed me to move to some empty seats and I was able to get some sleep. He also had milk for my tea. Americans don’t realise that cream or half and half ruin tea.

Security was a mess at the Helsinki Airport. But I was delighted by the connecting flight waiting for us for JFK.

Very rude hostess. She embarrassed me in front of others. I went to sit after taking off in a different sit in the same economic cabin. Was the area where doors are. She come to me very laud and said: go back to your sit those sit are more expensive.wow! No diplomacy. Flight was super full except 3 of those sit. The only person in that row later during the flight occupied all sit laying down!. Once more disappointed at American Airlines. Early flight they lost my luggages for 4 days. Never refund money for replacement for some of essential items purchased..when I booked the flight I thought was Finlandair. I

The crew was very good, excellent, they help me with my needs.! Food was not that good.

Flights are standard. But being over 3 hours late is too much.

In-flight entertainment was. It working for the entire 12 hour flight! Unbelievable! At least provide free wi-fi so people could use their phones.

My flight was on American Airlines, AA, through Finnair.. What I didn't like was that I couldn't get seat assigment until 48 hours in advance. I also was not given my AA Confirmation number. I called Finnair. They were very very helpful!

Excellent service and always our preferred choice of airline. Was surprised we had to pay for soft drinks though. Other wise great airline and customer service!

Even though we had an airline approved car seat they insisted it was too large to fit in the plane. This same car seat has traveled to 18 different countries on at least 12 different airlines, including our initial flight on the smaller of the two aircraft used for our round trip travel. When we attempted to push the issue we were told to either check the seat or we could just stay in Helsinki (our layover location). The reasoning was because the flight was full, even though we occupied all 3 seats on our side of the plane/row. The the flight attendant then had the nerve to come back and make a smart comment about how the 2 year old was just as safe sitting in his seat alone (complete BS, because anyone who has ever tried to get a 2 yr old to sit still without a seat for 2+ hrs knows it is not going to happen).

Meals were nice are abundant, the staff on both flights were personable and well trained

There was no entertainment for complete journey it was terrible experience

my daughter was throwing up and I did not get any help. The food was such bad quality. the plane was clean and the entertainment was great

I travel extensively internationally. I only bought this ticket because it was much cheaper than my usual airlines. I had sworn off Lufthansa from past experiences of tiny seat space, mediocre food and entertainment and unconcerned airline stewardesses. I was pleasantly surprised on this flight! My seat space was bigger than I remembered. The plane was new! The stewardesses were great and the food much better. Movie selection wasn't as good as Delta/Air France but good enough. I would now choose Lufthansa again in my top tier of flight choices.

It seems that legroom has improved in the last few years on these shorter flights. Thanks for that.

Poor signage, hard to find boarding gate, food was disgusting, very short connection and long transit times going from plane to connecting flight, both ways , will try to avoid flying Lufthansa trough Frankfurt.

The flight leaving mxp was late I lost connection in ORD Changing flight was hectic and messy, overnight and meals vouchers very poor

The seats were too close together. My sister is 5ft 9in tall and her knees were against the back of the seat in front of her. She couldn't straighten her legs. It was difficult to get out to go to the rest room. Everything else was good. We were serviced frequently with drinks, water, cookies, two delicious meals, and warm washcloths. The movies we watched were great. The temperature was good and we had pillows and blankets.

They did not charge me for bags on the way to Munich but on the way back they charged me over $450. The planes were very small and very old. They are out of their minds I will not fly them again!

Due to arriving late and lost baggage wie missed our next flight.

Not as bad as from Newark to London ,but that doesn’t mean I will book with them again

Both flights into and out of Heathrow were delayed over two hours due to BA technical problems. Ground crew was not very friendly. However cabin crews were

Flight staff was amazing! They deserve a raise. Middle seat was very uncomfortable

Lounge access restricted due to capacity. Boarding long and free for all. Good crew service Food awful.

Mostly very good. Flight staff twice forgot to bring drinks when they said they would come back with them. Couldn't find crew in my area of the plane to get them myself

Ord ->LHR->Rome no glitches , food disappointing Rome->LHR->ORD late , missed flights , had to stay overnight in London , missed flight in Chicago Plane was cold , one bathroom had no bright light in it , mediocre dinner , snack one step up from dog food . Crew was nice . Would try another airline to Rome next time

My luggage di dnot arrive till two days later and after several phone calls and unpleasant conversations

Excellent plane (B787), comfortable seats in Premium Economy. Seat back TV screen didn't work properly so that was a bit of a bummer. Food was good, service was efficient. Overall good experience.

We were blessed to have an upgrade and it was so nice! The extra room, footrest, better food and headphones you can actually hear the entertainment on. Sure made the long journey much better! For some reason we had to wait a long time for our checked baggage. Over a half hour. Otherwise the trip was perfect

Whilst the flight was delayed, the crew and service was fabulous.
