They were doing some sort of passport control and only had 1 person for all of economy. It took forever and seemed unnecessary since we all had our documents checked when we were at the check in counter.
Food was good entertainment was mediocre flight was delayed about 1.5h
Better entertainment options and faster boarding.
One of my bags didnt arrived. It was a priority bag. And the flight was a really bad experience. There were two kids (2-3 years old) from two families in business class that cried during literally 10 hours! Was a really long flight
Hi. You canceled my trip and now you are asking me for review? Check my trip record and you will have my review. Call your customer service and you will have the answer. This was the worst experience in my life. Sorry for you.
Contra: "Boarding was late and line was very lonf"
Pro: "Seat more comfortable than most economy seats with other airlines. Smiling, attentive cabin attendants. Good food. Easy to get to next flight. Seems a bit more spacious than other airlines."
Contra: "Free Wifi."
Contra: "Need more movies to choose from."
Contra: "The flight was delayed by more than two hours leaving from Delhi to Zurich and by more than an hour leaving Zurich to Chicago. The service on the Delhi Zurich flight was minimal, inflight entertainment did not work in spite of the crew trying to reset, the bathrooms were AWFUL!"
Pro: "They had many snacks and meals. Staff was very friendly."
Contra: "The dinner taste was not great. Seating is very uncomfortable and small. Really limited on space if seat is reclined in front of you."
Contra: "Seats are too cramped for an international flight."
Pro: "Attendants were very pleasant and helpful"
Contra: "The plane was extremely cramped as the seats reclined so far back that it rested on my knees. It was extremely difficult to keep my seat back up which created an uncomfortable angle for my back on a 9 hour flight. The cabin was extremely warm and there was little airflow. The airline also lost our luggage"
Pro: "Same as above- wonderful crew, smooth take off and landing Very pleasant flight attendants the entire flight Service was great"
Contra: "Again / wish all airlines had more comfortable seating in economy clas"
Pro: "The food that I did get was decent There was wine A couple decent movies were available"
Contra: "They were basically out of food almost everytime they got to me. The Arm rest only went half way up They didnt pass out water as much as they usually do"
Pro: "Lots of room because plane was half full"
Contra: "I arrived almost early enough to get on an earlier flight. I think if I'd pleaded a bit more..."
Pro: "Was smooth. From take off to landing. Captain kept us informed all the way to our destination."
Contra: "No complaints."
Pro: "Clean airplane and toilets Many entertainment choice No turbulence"
Contra: "3 separate passport control checks Last minute gate number announcement Very long flight 9.5 hours Tight seat room"
Pro: "Throughout the long flight, the cabin crew was excellent. They were attentive and friendly. They avoided interrupting quiet time and rest time by keeping off the PA system (well done). The food was fantastic. We were lucky enough to get some business class tickets with points, and the food was amazing. Wine was excellent. This team was quite solicitous of my parent with reduced-mobility. And the bathrooms stayed clean throughout the flight. find this is often an areas where many airlines fall down. And it's too bad, because while I'm 100% sure it is no fun to clean a toilet while in flight, it is a really a big negative for the customers. Overall excellent attention to detail, with a cheerful and "can-do" crew that kept the plane "proper" throughout the flight and provided seamless service. Good stuff. Will fly again."
Pro: "Not sure why airline companies buy planes where the seat in front recline to the lap of the costumer behind where it makes a 9 hr flight miserable"
Pro: "Food was good and staff was nice."
Contra: "Touch screens didn't work very well, poor entertainment selection compared to other airlines, poor sound quality"
Pro: "I was late ( I had to drive 230 Km ) and I managed to call in advance the company that was doing the check-in on behalf of SWISS - I asked them the Check-in time closing time and by almost flying ( speeding like crazy ) I arrived before that moment."
Contra: "I did not check the terms and conditions of the ticket. I am a Star Alliance Gold member and I was expecting SWISS to have a similar booking system like the others I fly with. I found out that the ticket fare did not contain checked luggage ( so I had to pay a hefty fee for it ) and also my 20" wheeled case that was ok in all the other flights I took it with me, this time was oversized and overweight . My wife took out the 2 laptops so it became within weight limits but still oversized - My wife paid for the fee ( I wasn't there at the time and she is not a such experienced flyier as I am ) . When I found out about the fee, I checked their rules and I found out that the hand luggage is allowed to be 22" . I saw in the airplane a lot of people with cases having the same size as mine, that went as checked luggage at a cost fo around 40 . I want to see how can I get my money back . . ."
Pro: "Excellent, super-friendly crew, excellent meal"
Pro: "I really liked the "About my flight" application on the viewing screens because it always gave me an idea of what we were flying over and how much longer we woulld be in the air. The food was excellent and I was pleasantly surprised that I could have wine with dinner or any time the attendants offered beveragess. The attendants were always professional and helpful. They all were fluent in English as well as several other languages. It was a nice touch when the attendant wore white gloves when he or she was collecting passengers' trash after meals and/or beverage service. I loved the cheese that was served at dinner."
Contra: "My seat was a little confined when I put my carry-on bag in front of me on the flight to Zurich, but it was roomier when I stowed my carry-on in the overhead compartment on the returtn flight."
Pro: "No assists"
Contra: "Poor service"
Pro: "Great Food and very pleasant personnel."
Contra: "Choices of music and movies."
Pro: "Good food, ice cream and free alcohol"
Pro: "Comfortable....customer-service oriented staff. Enjoyable food, and entertainment."
Pro: "Flight was comfortable and crew was second to none. They were very attentive and courteous."
Pro: "The flight had a delay but managed to (partially) make up for it."
Contra: "Boarding was a little slow. Perhaps it would be nice to more explicitly explain to people how to more quickly stow their luggage and then sit down in order to let other people through. The seats felt a little more cramped than usual."
Pro: "The crew was friendly and very attentive. The food was surprisingly good. I would definitely try to fly SWISS again."
Contra: "Not a big deal, but I missed the vents above the seats."
Pro: "Entertainment options were pretty good."
Contra: "If people leaned the their seat back it was very uncomfortable and hard to get in and out, eat and or watch the tv."
Pro: "Easy. Pleasant staff. I felt safe and happy."
Pro: "2 Long flights. Friendly, efficient crew. Plane was clean. Price was good."
Pro: "Boarding was on time. Staff very courteous. No complaints at all"
Pro: "Both the food and service were fantastic. A great choice of mid flight entertainment"
Pro: "Crew was excellent."
Contra: "The advanced seat reservations that we had paid for 7 months in advance were changed to very uncomfortable substitutes without giving us a reason."
Pro: "This was my first time flying on Swiss Air. Beautiful aircraft and a very friendly crew. Food was good and our flight was on time. Lots of options for in-flight entertainment."
Contra: "The boarding process was not ideal. This was our first time in the Zurich airport and we were not aware of the passport check at the gate. There were no signs and several passengers tried to board without the stamp only to be sent to the passport check line. Very frustrating. Also, there was no organization so everyone just rushed forward when boarding was called. They should consider boarding by rows to make it a more orderly process. Finally, there was no leg room at all. I realize airlines are trying to squeeze every passenger in that they can, but this was ridiculous. I'm 5'11" and my knees were pinned against the seat in front of me."
Pro: "crew was great. Food was excellent. Bathrooms in good shape."
Contra: "No internet. Very slim choices for entertainment."
Pro: "Great kosher food!"
Contra: "Leg room"
Contra: "Not enough leg room"
Pro: "Crew was very nice"
Contra: "Make sure they check the flight before they make passengers aboard like my seat, I had to travel for 10 hours in same position & even flight attendants couldn't help because the flight was packed I understand but I did suffer"
Pro: "Fantastic flight attendants, good food. I felt safe throughout the whole travel."
Pro: "Same as on top"
Contra: "The seats"
Pro: "smooth, professional, comfortable"
Pro: "Seats are roomy"
Contra: "Selection of movies rather poor"
Pro: "Attentive crew"
Contra: "Long wait for baggage at destination"
Cheaper price compare to Emirates and Qatar.
Pro: "Overall is perfect"
Pro: "Seats were super comfortable!"
Pro: "The service and food are always fantastic. The staff really goes out of their way to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. The ticket price was fantastic too!"
Pro: "Service, food, comfort, entertainment."
Pro: "The crew was attentive and friendly!"
Pro: "crew was good enough... but seats was not comfortable, screen was broken and in general plane was a bit old for 2019 futures"
Contra: "more space for legs, modern screens"
Contra: "Change the mousse flavor, please. The hummus was terrible."
Contra: "The crew isn’t very friendly, they do not know English very much."
Contra: "Plane was hot on the flight going TK 6. Flight on the way back TK 5 was much better."
Pro: "For once, on time departure. Quick boarding. Courteous service."
Contra: "Cabin a little too cold for passengers around me."
Contra: "The process to get into the plane at Istambul was horrendous. It took forever to process the passengers."
Pro: "overall, service was great"
Contra: "seats are too narrow"
Contra: "This was the worst I have ever experienced. My flight arrived into Istanbul and 45 minutes until the departure I was told it had already left. I later found out something very similar had happened to a man from London, a couple from Boston, three people from Ghana, and many more that were taken advantage of in an attempt to sell tickets for them to go home. Never in my life have I seen such corruption first hand in a business that claims to be professional. I travel with them roughly twice a year so I'm not really a huge spender when it comes to their service, however I have suggested many to use their airlines. Never again will I make this mistake, and never again will I fly with them. I think I would rather spend the few extra hundred dollars than to have to experience that again. Turkish airlines you have lost my service and my respect."
Pro: "The entertainment system (the movies, songs and ext) The food was good."
Contra: "The seats MUST be updated."
Pro: "The food and quality of the flight was incredible."
Contra: "The boarding process was chaotic, partly due to the airport layout, however it would be great if they were able to sort a less chaotic way to transport business class passengers out to the jets in less cramped busses."
Pro: "Turkish A/L always professional and efficient."
Contra: "Unmanaged two-year olds crying throughout the 10-hour flight. Will avoid IST going forward as well. Chaotic airport with little or no management present. Had to wait through SIX separate lines for a simple flight transfer. Had the body scans TWICE. Ridiculous. Nearly missed my 10-hour flight to Chicago."
Pro: "The flight itself was very nice quality again. Crew was very friendly, priority boarding for international business. pod seating was super comfortable."
Contra: "No alcohol beverage service before take off. One of the only airlines that does this. Also flight was delayed again in Istanbul. We were delayed on our layover in, and out of Istanbul. Both times stuck on the tarmac. I see this as a common problem"
Contra: "5 layers of security check for us bound flights. Group A, B, C & D almost boarded on the same time. Food was horrible."
Contra: "I had a 22 hour layover. On the website, Turkish Airlines advertises they cover hotel rooms for anyone with a layover exceeding 15 hours. However, it's impossible to get a e-visa to allow Americans to leave the airport to take advantage of this. There is one hotel inside the airport, however it's extremely expensive and booked well in advance. While the service was decent on the plane, inside the airport the TA employee's were very rude and not at all helpful. So be prepared to spend the night on the floor or an uncomfortable bench. Won't fly on this airline ever again."
Pro: "Never flying back with this airline"
Contra: "Very bad customer service"
Pro: "Everything was great."
Pro: "Good entertainment selection. Good enough food."
Contra: "Not enough legroom. No need at all for those foot rests."
Pro: "The flight was great. It was before the flight that was highly stressful"
Contra: "Boarding procedures in Istanbul were terrible. No communication. Lots of anxiety and stress. Running through airports."
Pro: "Great seating & service"
Contra: "Non stop talking people behind me!!!!"
Pro: "Crew accommodated at seat change so I had a space between me and the next passenger and I got a row seat."
Contra: "Trying to reclaim our laptops at the end of the trip was a nightmare. They confiscated all electronic devices larger than a cellphone due to new Trump regulations (not their fault). Fine. But they were so disorganized about the process. When trying to reclaim the devices after the flight utter chaos ensued. That was their fault. Passengers were on the verge of violence and it could have been avoided by simply being more organized."
Pro: "food, large touch screen..."
Pro: "The airline was very hospitable and efficient. All flights were on time, boarding and de-boarding were very quick and painless. Crew was extremely helpful and kind. Food was good, seats were comfortable, and entertainment was good. For the money and time spent on this flight we felt we got an extremely good deal and would take this airline again, and recommend."
Contra: "The planes were pretty warm/hot for most of our flights. I'm not sure if air condition was available, but I know some people asked. It did cool down eventually so they must have turned on air or fans, but I know the heat was on at some points which made it a bit uncomfortable for such a long flight."
Contra: "leaving late"
Pro: "We liked how easy it was for English speakers - English announcements, English-speaking attendants, good signage at airports."
Contra: "Our luggage did not transfer in Istanbul (1 hour layover) and didn't arrive in Warsaw for nearly 48 hours (actually 45 hours)."
Contra: "Choice of food on business class was very limited"
Pro: "Service was amazing! Highly recommend."
Pro: "as above"
Contra: "as above"
Pro: "This is a government run airline with very poor customer service. I flew 6 flights in December, 2016 in business class - out of which 5 flights were late. There was no help at the transfer desk in Istanbul to get onto another flight as my connecting flight was missed because the original outbound flight was late. The customer service staff both at the lounge and the transfer desk were inept and rude and did not want to help. I shudder to think how economy passengers are treated."
Contra: "1) No organized boarding process - there is a general melee at the boarding gate with a lot of shoving and pushing. 2) Customer service staff are rude, incompetent and unhelpful 3) No recognition that customers are to be served 4) Food selection in business class was mediocre and poor 5) Old aircraft - on flight from Istanbul to London, business class was 3 abreast with the middle seat being used as a tray table. 6) Sleeper class is mediocre - seat width is poor and one cannot even turn on the side"
Pro: "Nothing, will never use this airline again."
Contra: "Worst customer service. Very uncaring and rude. Worst airline I have seen and I have traveled with many. Had doubts about using Turkish and a little less expensive ticket turned out to be the most expensive in many ways. Went to the gate 17 minutes early and the agents and the plane was there but was refused entry and was lied and told to go to gate 215 and missed the flight even though there were empty seats on the plane. Asked for help at the other gate but was given the run around and ignored by everyone and told to go to gate 214. After I went to gate 214 was told to go to customer service lower level. Turkish airline supervisor Mustafa Bogaz at Istanbul customer service held a grudge because I was upset and yelled at one of the supervisors and he told Mustafa and everyone not to help me and wanted to get back at me and said penalty in front of me to the customer service member I was speaking with. Mustafa lied and would not put me on a connecting flight and said I had to pay penalty and wait 24 hours. Told me to go to customer service outside the airport and would not call them after I told him I was ready to pay for a connecting flight and could not wait 24 hours and needed to go to work. Even though an American citizen was told needed a visa after waiting 1 hour in line and had to pay to exit the airport. The machine didn't work and the credit card was refused. Got stuck at the airport for 24 hours and missed work and a family event. Turkey is a hell hole and nothing works. Will never visit again. Mustafa 6 hours later was still holding a grudge and told another customer service member in Turkish in front of me to lie to me and say there was no emergency aisle seat available for the flight the next day. Got an emergency aisle seat the next morning when Mustafa wasn't there. Everyone in the customer service team including other supervisors took Mustafa's side and would not help me and lied. Everyone had no compassion and held a grudge."
Pro: "Great customer service and food!"
Contra: "Nothing. They were great!!"
Pro: "Food was fine and entertainment system was great. Watched movies the whole way. We arrived 1 hour early."
Contra: "I was pulled aside for extra security. That was fine but there were a few other passengers that should have been pulled over for extra security besides me. It took an extra 20 minutes for me to board the plane because of this and when I arrived to my seat an Arab woman was sitting in my place and refused to move to the middle seat. She said she could not and would not sit next to a man who was sitting on the other side. If this is a problem from the start, there should be a way to choose a seat according to gender. The stewardess found me another place in front of this woman who kicked my seat the whole way. She even argued with the stewardess about putting her suitcase above her in the rack and security was almost called. There should be something included in the flight information program about being polite to other passengers."
Pro: "Excellent serice by airline crew nice food l like Tayip erdogan .end l like Turkiye and llike Turkish arlanes, Sincerely your Customer Cabir Senalan"
Contra: "Boarding and airplane age."
Contra: "Sat 44A. The entire row behind me had 1 adult & 2 children. 2 Hours into the flight, there were 4 children, no adults and the seats were used as a playpen. 7 hours of kicking, punching the screen, opening the window shutter during "sleeping time" as instructed by the crew. Wine was poured on my back, water splashed on the person next to me, children were climbing over my head... etc. No parents or flight attendants could help the situation. Boarding was a mess. 10-15 passengers surrounding me sat anywhere they wanted creating a delay to push back because everyone just sat with their family and disregarded the chaos it created for those individual travelers wanting to sit in "THEIR PROPER SEAT". This was the worst / never ending flying experience I've ever had. I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pro: "The flights attending."
Contra: "The waiting time for next flight."
Pro: "I love Turkish Airlines overall. Their bigger international airplanes have more leg room for a coach for longer flights. Crew were courteous and professional."
Pro: "The food and the boarding was fast."
Contra: "Everything was great."
Pro: "It was nice to receive a meal on such a short flight."
Pro: "The food was good, the flight attendants were mostly friendly and normal."
Contra: "While the flight attendants and crew inside the airplane were all friendly and nice , I can't say that for the employees inside the airport!!! They are the WORST employees I've ever seen! Multiple times, when I was trying to ask for help, they barely made eye contact or rudely ignored me! I was shocked! Never have I ever seen airport employees act so rude! One girl even was half asleep when I went up to her to ask for directions. She just pointed to the direction and didn't even look at me or say anything ! Never again will I fly with Turkish airlines."
Contra: "YOU destroy the traveler Luggage at this trip and there is some items missing . Thank you"
Flight was great even though it was delayed.
KLM flight sucks! Not very active about telling passengers to put in their mask over the nose. 🙄
TsA was fast and efficient. Boarding was effortless, fast. Having a new and clean plane only amplified the experience
All 8f rhe main dishes in business class had cumin or other sharp spices which I can not tolerate
Crew was super helpful storing my bag, seating people, etc And now they’ve started thanking their Delta frequent flyer members !! Two crew came to find me and thanked me by name
Pro: "It was all good glad the last leg of the trip was pleasant."
Pro: "Airplane accelerated from stand-by directly to runway without preparation stop. Awesome!"
Contra: "Small plane, feels cramped"
Contra: "The Entertainment display didn't work."
Pro: "Crew was friendly"
Contra: "The boarding process was rough and haphazard"
Pro: "The crew did their best to deal with delay."
Contra: "There was an absolutely awful job done by both Delta and Kayak of informing us if additional delays, new gate assignments, when the plane would be reboarded. Also, people were quite angry that the plane had to be cleaned between the time we got off and the time we reboarded. Just get us home."
Contra: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"
Pro: "Very nice crew, precisely respects the flight schedule"
Pro: "Overall the flight was very comfortable."
Pro: "The fight was very professionally carried out."
Contra: "The gate agent hurried ineffectively to board our slightly delayed flight (around 10 min). She left open the Priority Lane and boarded all pax there, having to step 4 steps to the left to scan every boarding pass."
Pro: "It was ok"
Contra: "Seat the family together"
Contra: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Contra: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."
Pro: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Contra: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pro: "Everything was good except boarding was delayed several times and even after everyone had boarded. We arrived 2 hours behind originally scheduled time as the result."
Contra: "Delta needs to try harder to minimize flight delays."
Contra: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Pro: "The seats were ok."
Contra: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pro: "Flight left on time"
Contra: "Gate crew had trouble identyfing boarding pass on their computer. Difficulty getting on plane"
Pro: "Amazing crew and clean cabin."
Pro: "On time/ early arrival!"
Contra: "Most bring on 2 large carry ons slowing down boarding an de- planeing."
Contra: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Pro: "Quick flight"
Contra: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pro: "Staff, service, options"
Contra: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Pro: "Crew friendly"
Contra: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"
Contra: "Break downs again... At least this time they found another plane."
Pro: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Pro: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."
Pro: "The crew was great"
Contra: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pro: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Contra: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pro: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating"
Pro: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."
Pro: "i liked that staff and crew were very communicative and pleasant."
Contra: "one crew member didn't show up and caused delayed flight."
Pro: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."
Pro: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"
Contra: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Pro: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Contra: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Pro: "Plane arrived early"
Contra: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pro: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pro: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Contra: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Contra: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."
Pro: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Contra: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pro: "Got to the destination"
Pro: "Great food and service."
Contra: "My seat did not recline. My movies did not play."
Contra: "Great food, comfortable seats, enjoyed the whole 11 hour flight."
Contra: "Having more than one person at the curtesy desk when half the plain’s luggage was left in Germaine"
Contra: "Missed connection flight in Chicago due to a technical delay in Munich, the tank vehicle had a defect and the ground power in Chicago went out. It is now the 4 th time that we got stranded in Chicago. So Condor, Lufthansa and Chicago are getting on our shitlist......"
Pro: "Never seen such a large streaming movie library. Never seen live stream at seat from cameras (3) outside the plane."
Contra: "It was not clear this was a no-checked-baggage flight, seeing as I specifically searched with flights with luggage. I chose Lufthansa's flight counting on the fact that international flights always allow one checked bag. I had to pay on that way here. I"ll have to pay on the way home."
Pro: "The red wine was good and the crew made sure that we were well hydrated. The flight was very smooth."
Contra: "The quality of the meals was poor - tasteless food, possibly loaded with preservatives."
Pro: "Service was great too"
Contra: "Squished in seat"
Pro: "Flight attendants Was nice and friendly, I do like theirs Sevice ."
Pro: "TSA made me miss my flight i have to wait until 7 am for a new flight"
Contra: "TSA made me miss my flight i have to wait until 7 am for a new flight"
Pro: "Enjoyed the legroom even though we flew Economy class. Good selection of free movies. Crew was friendly and accommodating."
Contra: "We waited for an hour at the gate for other passengers, to where we missed our connection in Chicago and did not get back to Austin, TX for another 24 hours."
Pro: "All good - Lufthansa even handled an unexpected air traffic delay well, meaning my connection still worked. Great price too - booked at short notice and Lufthansa business was half the price of BA. Far better device too."
Contra: "No negatives."
Contra: "United charged me a Bagage fee of 25 dollars and they where not supposed to since it was a international flight. The knowledge of the agent was not very good. Now I will have to write to Lufthansa and hoping they will reemburse me."
Pro: "Lufthansa is an efficient operation."
Contra: "1. The comfort in economy class was insulting and horrible. I am 6'3", 175lbs and was trapped in one uncompromisingly uncomfortable position for 8+ hours. Torture is a word that comes to mind. If I were a smaller sized person, 5'8" or less, perhaps this may be acceptable, but for anyone over 6'. forget it. You must pay loads extra to be given a respectable seat. I am hopeful that I don't develop a blood clot from this flight. This lack of room is a seriously dangerous situation for many people on long-distance flights. 2. The seat recline feature added further insult to the mix. Once airborne, the lady in the seat in front of me sent her seat into what was left of any personal space or legroom I had. The video screen on the setback in front of me was literally 6" from my face now. Several people who were also of taller size complained, one was so adamant about retaining his space that he fought verbally with the lady in front of him, and eventually a stewardess had to be called. My wife complained on my behalf, and was able to get the lady in front of me to reposition her seat, but eventually, I noticed it somehow found its way back to recline again. I know Lufthansa is not alone with this predicament, but something HAS TO BE DONE to fix this huge problem with air travel. 3. The food on the flight to Germany was way better than the return trip. The meal consisted of mushy carrots, greasy mashed potato-like side, and a piece of OK chicken smothered in 'Murican BBQ sauce. I was insulted. Lufthansa had been better than this in the past. Oh, and the dinner roll was so dry and crumbly, it could have been weeks old. The snack before landing was called pizza, but I wouldn't call it that It was a bunch of tasteless dough, a little bit of tomato like sauce and a smattering of cheese. I wish Lufthansa would stick to what they do best; German-influenced food. Be true to who you are. Most people I know love German food, and I always have looked forward to LH food selections. Not now."
Pro: "The staff and food were exceptional!"
Pro: "Pleasant cabin crew."
Contra: "Narrow, hard seats that will bring back your greatest dentist memories. Unappetizing menu choices, such that I chose not to partake. Nickel and dime add-on for wifi. Seriously? Thousands of dollars for business class, and you want another 13 Euro for wifi? Not bloody likely. I usually fly SAS business class, and based on this experience with Lufthansa, I will go straight back to SAS. They offer better service, better menu choices, and first class seating for the same price. Easy decision."
Contra: "Got a little hot in the cabin"
Pro: "Our family was able to all sit together, even though we were not able to select our seats."
Contra: "I wasn’t able to select my seats when booking the flight, but they put us all t"
Pro: "I enjoyed the patience of the crew and the responsibility they took with everything they did."
Contra: "The noise and the lack of space in my specific area."
Pro: "Crew were friendly"
Pro: "On time"
Contra: "General boarding should be by zones or rows and not first come first serve."
Contra: "Unorganized boarding. Back of the plane seats should be boarding first, after babies and old people. I was stopped by the people in front of the plane putting away their luggage and standing in the aisle. Not enough room between the rows. Passenger in front of me most picture straight into my face"
Pro: "The crew and the service was very good."
Contra: "The place I was given was against a wall and I could not recline the seat back fully. The price for one way was the same as a return ticket, so I did not understand why I was "punished" with such choice of a seat."
Pro: "Munich airport on other hand. We got to the airport several hours in advanced. Everything from getting a boarding pass to checking and weighing in your own bag was electronically. Long lines and majority of the systems were not working. After trying several machines and being directed into 3 different lines I finally was able to check my bag in. I had to leave my other family members who were flying with me as they were in another line. At the machine to check my bag in , a airport worker ran up to my bag and slammed it onto the ground as well as ripped off my luggage tags. My bag was upright on the conveyer belt instead of on its side , but how rude the airport workers are, is rediculous. After I asked why she did that she just began ordering me around to move my bag after I got my bag through the machine I asked to speak to a manager as the airport worker was extremely rude and unprofessional. No one would give me the time of day and the same airport working out her hand in my face saying repeatedly goodbye in German. I've never experienced anything like this in my entire life. Trying to get through security a few travelers on a thin patience level started pushing people in line trying to by pass others it was so very chaotic workers had to go in between. Those travelers were complaining, because disabled travelers had a separate line that was faster. The worst airport experience I've ever had. Once on the plane everyone was pleasant. Crew was very helpful and always willing to assists"
Contra: "There was a child on the plane that was screaming and crying on and off for several hours. The parents didn't do anything to keep the child calm. Before we got to Chicago eveyone had to be seatbelt s before landing and the flight attendant asked eveyone to buckle up. The mother of the baby wouldn't listen and began yelling at flight crew. I think the flight crew did a great job, the passenger and child were very disruptive making the flight at times very uncomfortable. I wouldn't suggest infants or toddlers flying for such long trips. No one wants to listen to a child screaming at the top of their lungs."
Pro: "Movies / Food"
Contra: "Seat location. Delay time boarding."
Contra: "A flight attendant from Bucharest to Frankfurt kept bumping her behind in my shoulder. Before this she was not helpful when I asked her where to put my bag. She shoukd not work with people if she does not like them. Otherwise, everything was great: food, space, movies."
Pro: "The flight was delayed due to air traffic control issues. It didn't make a difference for me but many people missed their connection. However, the crew were all friendly and the Captain was very outgoing and communicative."
Contra: "Late flights are never good."
Pro: "Boarding is efficient. Flight very smooth."
Contra: "great crew"
Contra: "No complaints"
Pro: "Nothing in particular"
Contra: "The shabbiness of the plane. The cramped space. The lack of overhead bin space. In fact, the space above my seat was full of suitcases of the crew. I had to find space somewhere else. If I had not been able to board early, I probably would not have found space."
Contra: "Although we had reserved (paid) seats as a family in an entire row, upon check in we were given different seats. We had to spend 20 minutes talking with different agents in order to get our original seats."
Pro: "While showing wear and tear, the business seats are great - comfortable with nice design"
Contra: "Old plane. Bad food. Small seats. Obsolete entertainment system. Hate United!"
Contra: "My flight was cancelled due to the pilots' strike. I only learned about this when I attempted online check in. Lufthansa never attempted to notify me. Then when I called in to the Romania Service Center to rebook, the phones went down in the middle of the call. That is understandable given the extreme volume of calls they were handling. What is unacceptable, is that they made no attempt to contact me once the phones were up. I ended up calling the U.S. service center at 1am local time to rebook...only 3 hours before I needed to leave for the airport. It took an hour - which I paid for at direct dial international rates - to find a flight. I'm very grateful for the U.S. service rep who was kind and helpful. She was the one bright spot in this poorly handled situation."
Pro: "Entertainment system"
Contra: "I feel that the there should be NO reclining of seats in the economy section. There is about 10-12 inches of space between my face and the seat back if the seat in front is not reclined. If it is reclined , this distance is reduced to 6-8 inches. Too, too close. And reclining does not add much to the comfort of the sitting position. When the person in front of me reclines, then I am almost forced to recline so I have enough room."
Pro: "Excellent airplane, very comfortable."
Contra: "Landed very late in Chicago and lost our connection to home. Had to spend the night to catch another flight home in the morning."
Pro: "in flight entertainment, bathrooms, and charging capability"
Contra: "Not enough service/availability of water"
Contra: "Flight was late causing us to miss our connection to Las Vegas, NOT HAPPY"
Pro: "The movie options where not great."
Contra: "Movie options."
Pro: "The crew made this flight in my experience. The crew was very professional and quick to respond."
Contra: "The late boarding due to technical and mechanical problems at the airport Lufthansa gate."
Pro: "Good entertainment options and nice choice of movies and TV. Complimentary drinks are good and service is frequent."
Contra: "Difficulty with Lufthansa's website made it so that I could only complete check in for one person in our party. When we arrived at the airport and they printed boarding passes, the Lufthansa agent re-assigned seats without asking or telling me and gave us all middle seats. Very poor form. Food was either average or bad, depending on what was served. Boarding is unorganized, with people lining up over an hour prior to boarding and almost completely ignoring their boarding groups."
Pro: "Smooth landing in Chicago."
Contra: "The crew in my section near the rear of the plane was competent, but snippy. None seemed approachable. I contrast them with the Lufthansa crew from Toronto to Munich who were short-handed but so pleasant even though they were overworked due to some crew members not showing up. Lufthansa food is average at best. The central restroom area on the MUC to ORD flight became filthy. Aren't crew members supposed to police that area? Or are passengers supposed to bring rubber gloves to clean it halfway through the flight?"
Pro: "In some airlines, you experience a different standard from Europe to America, compared to standard from Africa. Luftansa did not compromise quality. The partner maintained the same. The booking from Kayak was excellent . The travel was seamless."
Pro: "The flight itself was fine."
Contra: "Chaotic boarding process and tarmac delays consumed the already inadequate prospective layover in Chicago."
Pro: "Nice, comfortable , spacious seats in premium economy. Nice attendants."
Contra: "temperature in the Premium Economy sections was freezing. Me and the person next to me wore 3 blankets each and were still shivering from the cold. The windows had ice on them (on the outside of course). Several people got up and wore their jackets and sweaters in addition to the blankets. In the Economy section the temperature was just fine (my husband sat there) and we had to alternate seats so that I don't freeze. He paid extra for me to have a more comfortable arrangement, but it ended up being way too cold. That did not happen on the way to Europe..."
Pentru mine totul a funcționat bine… chiar foarte bine
Pro: "Austrian Airlines is the best! Crew, food, drinks, entertainment, and plugins were all provided, and it was all very nice (and delicious food!)."
Contra: "Nothing! Love Austrian Airlines!"
Pro: "Friendly and helpful crew, smooth transfer between flights, comfortable adjustable headrest, easy to request special meal online before flight."
Contra: "Movies available weren't to my taste, which isn't of great importance anyway."
Contra: "Mi s-au pierdut bagajele !"
Pro: "Just in time take of and landing, staff friendliness"
Contra: "Made me go through security twice, 2nd time was right before boarding. Reason: randomly selected. And, they lost my luggage. No valid explanation given. Apparently, will get delivered on next day’s flight. A disappointing experience."
Contra: "Flight entertainment was not fully functional. Many films would not play. The meal was also particularly bad - all three options that were available (chicken, pasta and vegetarian curry). Flight attendants often seemed very rushed."
Pro: "One crew member in the OTP-VIE flight that was great in service ."
Contra: "The delaying of both flights . The crew service on the VIE-NICE flight was awful ."

Contra: "The economy seats seem to be narrower than they are on other airlines."
Pro: "good food, drinks, good entertainment options"
Pro: "Service was good and the crew was courteous and friendly"
Contra: "Online check-in did not allow me to select my seat. It was already assigned and didn't let me change it Boarding was later than scheduled and caused my connecting flight at O'Hare hectic This was the first time that I had ordered Kosher food and I would never make that mistake again, the meal was okay but the sandwich was awful and had no taste!"
Pro: "On time take off"
Contra: "They serve non-halal food with Muslim menu. They think hat non-pork meat means halal/zabihah. Non friendly flight crew"
Contra: "Austrian Airlines cancelled my flight with no notice, technical difficulties. Woke up before 5 am and went to the airport to find out, then waited in line for two hours to get re-booked on a flight the next day. Really poorly done. No compensation. Would not recommend Austrian Airlines, ever. -Mark Cox"
Contra: "The plane was HUGE, too big. With such a big plane the crowd formed by the gate waiting to board was unmanageable. Also the giant plane felt like it was hard to maneuver during take off and landing. I would very much prefer a smaller plane. The touch screen in front of me was not always responding when I tried to tap the screen. The audio jack was also not working great; sometimes I did not have audio in my right earbud and I had to turn and fidget the plug. The earbuds provided by the airline did not even work when plugged into the screen, I had to use my own earbuds."
Pro: "Everything Fromt the crew and service. To checking in and deplaning was awesome"
Pro: "The stewardess is very polite and accommodating n"
Pro: "Very pleasant staff on the plane and in the airport. Economy Seats are more comfortable than some other airlines. Food is good."
Pro: "thanks for the trip. all the way was fast and comfortable)"
Contra: "I wanted to buy an checked-in luggage, but Austrian site did not worked properly, repeatedly gave an error message. I ended up buying it at the counter desk, in the airport, at a much higher price."
Pro: "The plane took off as scheduled and arrived promptly. Flight attendents are polite, pleasant and helpful."
Pro: "On time boarding in Vienna and lending in Chicago."
Contra: "Not enough food for a long flight (only one poor meal was served during the entire flight)."
Contra: "Rudest flight attendants I've ever witnessed. No food or drink for six hours. Bad entertainment selection."
Pro: "Professional and friendly staff"
Contra: "Outdated interior, media interface"
Contra: "Prior to take-off, we spent 2 hours after boarding on an incredibly hot plane with no working air conditioning"
Contra: "Boarding in Vienna was completely unorganized. Received zero instruction from crew on new boarding information."
Contra: "We left from Vienna , two hours late. This kind of problem supposed to be fix it , before.i like to fly with Austrian Airlines, isn't the first time, but now for me , to so long was a big problem"
Pro: "Plenty of food and drinks, pleasant crew"
Pro: "Expertise and effiency of the flight crew."
Pro: "Everything was great! The staff was friendly and really tried to make our experience the best it can be!"

Pro: "Great grew, great flight. Thank you!"
Pro: "Great flight! Excellent service! Excellent food and beverages! Would definitely do it again and recommend it to anyone."
Pro: "Flying on a direct flight was nice. The food was good. Ordinarily the snack lunch is not good but the sandwich was quite good."
Contra: "The boarding is best if done by rows but this was just every one trying to board at the same time so it has a more negative effect on passengers."
Contra: "Boarding on return flight was utter chaos and was not controlled properly. The crew was very pleasant and , in my opinion, could not have been any bertter."
Pro: "Excellent service on airplane, ample legroom in economy, the largest movie selection I've seen on a flight, delicious food. I had the vegetarian option and I was not disappointed."
Contra: "The boarding process at Vienna airport was unorganized and took longer than necessary."
Pro: "We paid extra for extra leg room. Exit row. Well worth Cabin crew very good and friendly"
Contra: "Connecting flight on United. Horrible experience Chicago to Vegas.seats are small, feeling of claustiphobia, nothing free on entertainment. Only interested in adding to price of ticket. Very warm A/c didn't work well. Totally bad experience on United. Never want to fly on them again"
Pro: "Good food and drinks,great movies"
Contra: "Dirty bathroom,needs upgrade too."
Pro: "My husband's experience with their flight from Chicago to Vienna was amazing. Everybody helped accomodate him with our 15 month baby boy."
Contra: "The crew (check-in desk & flight crew did not put any effort to help accomodate us). They even asked us to do all the work in asking around. Squeezed us in the tightest place possible for travelling with our baby boy. Will not recommend your airline because of this!"
Pro: "Flight was cancelled. Had to wait in the airport with kids."
Pro: "More leg room than we had on Swiss Air from Chicago to Vienna via Zurich. In flight food was excellent. Staff was friendly."
