Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."

Pros: "Food was great! The aircraft was very nice and the flight attendants were so helpful! Only a 3 1/2 hour flight and it was the best way I have flown!"
Pros: "ICE entertainment system was of high quality."
Cons: "First, the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I had trouble sleeping, and, the seat was stuck (couldn't move back). And second, the food tasted horrendous. I have been on many flights, and this was perhaps the worst meal I've ever had. The coffee was bitter enough to make me gag (even after I added cream), and the chicken was flavorless. The boarding process was a mess. It was hectic and unorganized. The flight was delayed an hour, and the crew failed to provide an adequate rationale as to why. Speaking of the crew, they weren't helpful. At one point, I had asked to use the restroom, and I couldn't get in. Again the crew provided no rationale as to why. Then, a few HOURS later, a lady approached me and said I could go "very quickly". This was my first time flying with Emirates and I don't think I'll be flying with them again."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Good staff"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"

Pros: "Service was too notch. Economy Class was a bit tight for such a long flight. Still a great experience. Thank you."

Pros: "Lots of leg room. Excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Not every seat had a power outlet. They took the headphones back a little too soon."
Pros: "Entertainment and flight information was very good.Service also very good."
Pros: "i like the food."
Cons: "They need to work on the air quality inside the cabin. Maybe an air freshner?"
Pros: "The in-flight service, food, drink, and entertainment were excellent. If my ticket didn't say that I was on the airplane for more than 9 hours, I never would've guessed it. Flying at its best."
Pros: "The quiet flight I've been in , the crew were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The standard meal was spicy to me , change the menu with more choices of healthy suitable for flight"
Pros: "The entertainment was great, I managed to watch a couple of movies I have been meaning to for a while, the vegan food amazing. Being able to charge my phone from my seat was a bonus."
Cons: "The seats were cramped together. I felt squashed in and I am only small. It was hard to leave the row to use the toilet."
Pros: "The stewards were really fantastic, and what started out as a delay because of air traffic control, wound up landing on time. Really smooth flight."

Pros: "A lot of food was served - much more than any flight in the USA"

Pros: "Great crew and good food."
Cons: "Delayed departing."
Pros: "The crew was great and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "If the seats reclined more, it would have been easier to sleep. The baby behind me would not stop screaming for 7 of the 15 hour flight. The flight was oversold so there was no where I could move. Even ear plugs didn’t help. Everyone was miserable."
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "WiFi was intermittent and if Qantas is going to rely on us to bring the equipment then they better get the service reliability right. I don’t see ticket prices or wine quality improving by passing entertainment infrastructure on to us..."
Pros: "Suberb crew. Not obsequious, just helpful with good anticipation."
Cons: "I paid extra to pick a seat so I can sit with my friends and once I boarded the plane I realized it had been changed. So I spent $60 for nothing. Why charge for seat assignment if it will change??!!"
Pros: "The flight was on time, service with a smile. Staff great."
Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Flying on 8 Jan is a time when there a lot of holiday makers heading home or perhaps just going on holiday. Lots of young children and a baby crying right behind me wasn't the most relaxing but I realise that nothing can be done about that."
Cons: "Very good airlines"
Pros: "The seats had more room than the bigger planes. We were offered a very nice sandwich for lunch There was cool air pumped around the plane from the moment we boarded"
Cons: "This flight was pleasant, so nothing to worry about."
Pros: "Online check in"
Cons: "Boarding was slow and disorganised, food was cold and tasteless (chicken noodle) not helped that I had to wait for cutlery to be able to eat it"
Cons: "I missed my flight. My flight from Melbourne with Qantas was delayed. I received an express connection ticket to go through Immigration, customs, etcetera. I ran, all for nothing. I should have known better, for sure. 2 hours is unrealistic. But this tickets shouldn't be offered, they give the impression that you can make it. And the staff in Melbourne, and the crew on the plane, all were extremely reassuring. I got to the gate of Alaska Airlines, the people there could only offer me a ticket two days later. And basically they said it was Qantas fault. Having almost no time and no clear way to communicate with Qantas (the 1800 number is useless), I had to book and pay a new ticket. Now I am going to try to contact Qantas for reimbursement but I am not optimistic. In summary, do not buy these types of tickets "in collaboration" with two companies. Especially if you make the connection in the US. It is a scam. 2 hours is no time. And even if you have 3 or 4 hours and there is a delay, you are basically on your own, and the companies give the responsibilities to each other."
Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "everything was lovely"
Cons: "the outdated on flight entertainment system"
Pros: "Crew were really good. Had lactose allergy but no meals available for me onboard. Couldn't get to a resolution as we were unsure on ingredients but crew did everything they could. Were very friendly about whole thing"
Cons: "Delay but stuff happens eh."
Cons: "Check in personal at Australia was very bad attitude and service"
Pros: "All round great experience. All went to plan. A330-200 business class was just right for this short trip."
Pros: "You have a good airline. It was clean and everyone was friendly all communication was good EXCEPT before I got to the airport I forgot my visa and thought all I’d have to do is call Qantas and they’d advise me."
Cons: "Every time I’d call an 800 number I’d get someone in South Africa who was sooooo unhelpful. I’m sure she had her script but for heavensake all I needed to do was to go online and get a visa. And I saw someone in San Francisco at the ticket counter get a visa and yet I was told I wouldn’t be flying that night as I had forgotten to get a visa. No help at all !! I know I wasn’t the only person that ever got a visa. I was told to call my consulate. Clearly there was a simple way to get a visa and I was so freaked out until I figured it out myself. Made it so unpleasant."
Pros: "Really appreciate the food and entertainment Qantas provides on these mid-haul flights"
Pros: "Got us safely to our destination"
Cons: "Seats were far less comfortable and smaller with less legroom than our Qantas qf8 flight"
Pros: "Excellent flight - great from start to finish. Free wifi was a bonus! delicious afternoon tea"

Cons: "Entertainiment screen was not working properly. Bad food. I could not check in online. Okay customer service."

Pros: "even though i am Qantas life time gold, my silver emirates membership would not get me itto Qantas line in Melbourne. i had to change the flight attribution to Qantas"
Cons: "went i couldn't use my Qantas membership to access Melbourne lounge"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and the crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "I noticed duct tape repairs on the chair in front of me. Also the armrest between my partner and my chair was broken and wouldn't stay up. The food was average. I've noticed a huge decline in food quality from 4 years ago. Also the airline's choice to serve stinky fish on a plane was questionable."
Pros: "I knew what to do without having been there before, thanks to electronic info available at my seat, in-flight announcements and signage at the airport."
Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Don't choose seats 9 A/B/C as there is a bulkhead and not window in this aisle (Boeing 737-800)"
Pros: "Fantastic service"
Cons: "Boarding gate was like queuing for a sporting event"
Pros: "Case was off quickly"
Cons: "No choice in seating"
Pros: "Nothing. The very best parts were still mediocre"
Cons: "This flight was so uncomfortable. The seats were small, hard and crammed together. Qantas should be ashamed of making people deal with that on a 13+ hour flight. They kept waking us all up and in general staff could provide little"
Pros: "I was accommodated excellently as I required wheelchair access and ease and comfort as I was recovering from major surgery. The return seating in upper level was most appreciated . A big thanks to the cabin crew especially Oscar."
Cons: "When I originally had to call to organise seating requirements and wheelchair access, I was in hold for 1.5 hours before I spoke to someone ."
Pros: "We were very needy due to being a large group with elderly passenger. The staff were very patient, tolerant and courteous with us"
Cons: "Delayed Boarding and they didn't say anything."
Pros: "Big, safe plane. The pilot striving to land us close to the originally-scheduled time, even though we boarded the plane an hour late. He did it! A++ to Qantas for providing a spigot at the back of the plane to refill water bottles, thus lessening the amount of plastic used."
Cons: "I ordered vegetarian meals and they were TOO SPICY. Being served a flaming hot tomato curry and spicy potatoes for BREAKFAST was ridiculous."
Pros: "Service is great and crew members are very friendly."
Cons: "Audio system (both of us) were down. We were had to move to other seats in order to enjoy inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Inflight service."
Cons: "Headsets tend to fail. Is good that more than one were provided."
Pros: "Great staff, overall comfortable for a long flight."
Cons: "Our vegetarian meals were bland and repetitive; dinner and breakfast pretty much identical. We received little processed fruit cups both meals, while the others had a nice fresh fruit entree."
Pros: "Crew and foodnostfing"
Cons: "Boarding unorganized."
Pros: "The ES on my failed three hrs into a 13 hr flight. No music no movies just a black screen. Staff unable to help. The cold salad option included raw potatoes, inedible raw broccoli stocks & green beans. Tough grisly ham bits. More like rubbish bin material than food."
Cons: "Cramped seating, no ES, poor quality food options"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Food is a joke"
Cons: "First flight delayed, missed flight to SF, stuck in frankfurt. A hotel is not adequate compensation"

Cons: "There is no inflight entertainment on these flight but I brought my own."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule. The pilot was great and avoided turbulence."
Cons: "Compared to my SF to Munich flight, the return trip was a nightmare. The flight attendants were nowhere to be found. Cold face towels, ran out of food and drink. Flight attendants allowing a school field trip to take over the flight. My seat was kicked for 7 hours straight, they did nothing."
Pros: "The Crew was very good. I was with my 84 year old father.And they handled his needs very well ."
Cons: "The food of course was sort of mediocre at breakfast. The eggs tasted like they were man made.oh well maybe that’s really typical. Otherwise all was fine."
Pros: "So very comfortable with lots of room. The mattress pads for the seats were a nice touch."
Cons: "Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "What’s not to love?"
Cons: "45min to 1 hour is barely enough to switch the plane in Frankfurt. Distances between gates are very significant and if you are not running there is a possibility you not going to make your connecting flight. Information how to get to the Z gates are not clear and it really takes a long time with all passport check points and security to pass through."
Pros: "Great airplane. Very nice staff. Great service."
Pros: "Live TV"
Cons: "Good quality"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and quick."
Cons: "To fly Lufthansa some more soon. Good jo b, thank you!!."
Pros: "That we made it alive."
Cons: "The 1 hr flight that turned into an 8 hour fiasco."
Cons: "Plane was old and had no in flight entertainment"
Cons: "They had one guy checking passports and he was being trained. Someone asked if there was anyone trying to get on the SF flight and a bunch of us raised our hands, but they didn't do anything. We had to run like OJ to make our flight. Not fun. Then the AC wasn't working while we sat there."
Pros: "The flight from Chicago was only about 2/3 full and there was no one in the seat next to me so I had plenty of room to stretch out and get comfortable. The flight was super smooth...hardly any turbulence and crew worked hard to keep passengers refreshed."
Cons: "I sat next to the biggest jerk on the plane (something out of Lufthansa control so I don't hold that against them). Also the seats were not the most comfortable...even for an economy seat was pretty basic. Also the entertainment system was temperamental and some of the features (flight tracker) didn't work at all."
Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Pros: "I love Lufthansa! Great service, comfortable, warm towels before meals served with real silverware. Amazing!"
Cons: "Service! Comfort!!"
Pros: "Everything was on time, the service was very nice as well. No problems at all."
Pros: "Crew kindness, comfort, convenient structure, etc. I hope to take this airline again for next trip."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was comfortable. And the food was very good."
Cons: "seats were tiny and boarding was a disaster. Overhead luggage space was tiny and I only had a 15" laptop bag.."
Pros: "It got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "The seats are way too close together for such a long flight. I fought off a panic attack for much of the trip. It was suffocating. I should not be able to give the person in front of me a head massage. The personal space humans should have was horribly invaded. I'm a 62 year old woman who's in good shape but even for me it was an act of gymnastics to get in and out of my seat. On my flight to Europe on the 13th with your airline our section of the plane did not have working monitors so it was like watching paint dry for 11 hours. So boring!"
Pros: "The crew was a 10. They were wonderful."
Cons: "I was in business class and the tv remote did not work."
Pros: "The boarding process is very efficient."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s people are mostly good. But there are some obvious opportunities for people to be more friendly. Also, LH like many others continues to serve cold rolls and cold butter on international flights. KLM warms the rolls! It’s the one small touch that would make Lufthansa’s meal service so much nicer."
Pros: "Good service."
Pros: "Regardless the delay, the company feed us with sandwich and snacks to pass the time"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that I wanted to watch the The Boss baby movie and it was unavailable. All other movies were ok"
Pros: "flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and there was no bathroom service on board"
Pros: "Nice staff...."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "As always, Lufthansa provides a great flight experience. Attentive crew, clean seats, and good leg room. Will fly Lufthansa again and again."
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as last year. Not bad, just not as good."
Pros: "Over the length of the 9.5 hour flight, my time in the Economy class was that the crew were professional, courteous and especially helpful. There is a magnitude of difference between the attitude and professionalism of this airline over any American airline I have flown. In the future, Lufthansa will be my first consideration."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5 hrs and then completely canceled. They never gave us a reason as to why it as canceled and when they canceled it, they directed the entire group of the people on the plane to 4 different gates before getting a gate agent to tell us that we had to leave the gate and go back to the ticket counter and start over again. The security in Israel is very intense, so this was a big hassle. Then they only had 3-4 gate agents to rebook all 300+ people on the flight so we waited in like for 3 hours."
Pros: "It was so much better in all ways from the United flight we had from Newark, NJ to Milano."
Cons: "It was IMPOSSIBLE to check in 'on-line' at my cousins the day before or even that morning. We wasted an enormous amount of time trying to do that, rather than walking & talking & enjoying each others company, the first time we've seen each other in 12 yrs."
Pros: "Excellent connection arrangements in Munich. Departing gate just steps away from the arriving one!!! German punctuality as well."
Cons: "Too little space between consecutive rows on the plane."
Cons: "At time confusion amongst the crew- received wilted salad- seemed the last rows had to take what was left over"
Pros: "Nothing, this flight never happened because of the strike."
Cons: "Luthansa rebooked me on BA, and stripped away my Premium Upgrade seating, giving me economy, an aisle seat next to a bathing-challenged male. It was disgusting and re-injured my leg wound."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight and I spent 7-8 hours on phone trying to resolve."
Pros: "crew was nice and that we arrived safe"
Cons: "super crowded flight with many crying children food was bad and not enough"
Pros: "Professional and cheerful."
Cons: "Not a lot."
Pros: "The entertainment was good for 8 hours of flight !"
Cons: "I would suggest free Wi-fi for everyone on board not only for business class! And to update the movie list each month! Any chance to have an contract with CNN or Fox News so the people can watch the news during the flight? Live TV?"
Pros: "Crew was great and the plane was clean. Food and drinks were good."
Pros: "Plenty of food & beverages. Loved the free movies!"
Cons: "wheel chair crew ignored us during boarding. my mother had to walk to the gate which was very difficult"
Pros: "Wine was nice. Great selection of movies. The crew were extremely helpful."
Cons: "Food was a bit bland. And there was no salt or pepper to be found."
Cons: "Seats were beyond uncomfortable unless someone was shorter than 5 feet tall. Zero amenities. I know it was the economy section but our 4 tickets were close to $6000.00. A few perks would have been appreciated."
Cons: "leg space is too tight"
Pros: "No problems at all. Luggage was there a and crew was very polite tried to keep everyone comfortable."
