Pro: "Friendly crew"
Contra: "Not piling up people like sardines in a can."
Pro: "The crew were friendly, helpful, and attentive. I'd love to fly with them all the time"
Contra: "The business class seat felt a bit claustrophobic when in lie flat mode"
Contra: "Staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful."
Pro: "Crew was very attentive and courteous"
Contra: "More fruits and non-starchy vegetables would make food more enjoyable"
Pro: "Food was really hot and good customer service"
Pro: "The crew was pleasant and worked very hard to keep our stomachs full! I loved all the free movies!"
Pro: "crew was friendly"
Contra: "seats were way too cramped - worst flight ever that way - what has happened to Swiss - there is no room - horrible!!!"
Pro: "I liked that it was a straight flight from SFO -ZRH. On board entertainment was great."
Contra: "Seating is way to tight. Service from crew is nothing at all like it used to with Swiss. Nearly a smile from crew ( both legs of flight) mostly just hand motion when serving food. Food was a big disappointment too. It feels like all the good service is reserved only for business and first class !"
Pro: "Superb crew; surprisingly delicious food (better than some first class meals I’ve had in the past)."
Contra: "The seat was remarkably uncomfortable. I fly business or first class when traveling overseas (prefer business class) specifically to be able to rest - this was the most uncomfortable I’ve experienced in the last few years."
Pro: "Swiss is always excellent"
Pro: "The crew"
Contra: "More comfortable seats"
Pro: "Amazing crew/ food/seats very comfortable! Very relaxing ride !"
Contra: "It was perfect !"
Pro: "Crew was lovely! Friendly and happy. Well organized and responsive."
Contra: "Overseas flight seats were tight going and coming, and being that long a flight you feel you are sitting on top of your neighbors. Air quality descends on a long full flight, it became claustrophobic by the end. There was only an option for vegetarian-vegan, but I am not vegan. I won't do that again. My daughter's bag didn't make to SFO, even though we were early to check in."
Contra: "Crew was excellent Seats very short on leg room and hard cushions"
Pro: "Swissair seating is cramped with 10 across in coach in Boeing 777. The only reason for not giving "poor" rating on this particular ZRH-SFO flight, was the empty seat next to me."
Contra: "Next time, I will give Turkish Airlines a chance, because their aircraft seats only 9 across in Boeing 777 coach. On the SFO-BUD flight, the connection is through Istanbul, but the flight time is the same 15 hours, as on the SFO-ZRH-BUD route. In addition, two checked bags are free in coach."
Contra: "I wanted to get some work done on my flight but I couldn't even open my laptop screen more than a few inches."
Pro: "The. Crew were amazing"
Contra: "Lpst my luggage"
Pro: "The crew was very helpful & friendly"
Contra: "The a/c or fans were on too high"
Pro: "Food service is adequate."
Contra: "Standard complaint, but economy seats are way to squeezed in!"
Pro: "All of the flight crew was personable and ready to accommodate any need we might have. Before we could ever get hungry, the staff was coming down the aisle with another serving of pretty good food!"
Contra: "We did have to wait on the plane for an hour after boarding, but I believe that was mostly due to wind."
Pro: "Although sitting in a plane in coach could never be considered a wonderful experience, Swiss Air did the most to make it so. in particular the crew was very responsive and cheerful. The leg room wasn't bad and they were very liberal with their wine and beer offering."
Pro: "The crew fed us well throughout the flight--and we got free wine with dinner. The food was pretty good for airplane food. We got fresh dinner rolls, salad, dessert, and Swiss cheese. We got ice cream part way through the trip. I loved that we got a piece of Swiss chocolate on each leg of the journey. The crew was friendly. There was a screen at each seat where you could watch movies or TV, listen to music, or track your flight. The entertainment was free, and the crew provided free earphones. Blankets and pillows were provided."
Contra: "Like most planes, there was not enough leg room. It makes it pretty uncomfortable for an 11-1/2 hour flight. The boarding was a little confusing, but no serious issues."
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: "Several rounds of beverage service along with tasty food and a great large-display entertainment, we were very pleased with the blankets and entertainment, and frequent service. It helped we had 3 seats for two people also."
Pro: "One on the plane service and food were very good. In flight movies limited in number of choices"
Contra: "Flight delayed over an hour because they couldn't fuel the plane and had to wait for trucks. Did not update the board at the gate with boarding times and people waited on long lines unnecessarily because they did not update the boarding times. Very frustrating."
Pro: "crew very nice and helpful. great service. food was very good and good portions. very nice entertainment system."
Contra: "unable to choose seat without paying extra."
Pro: "Excellent crew"
Contra: "Terrible seats :-("
Pro: "The staff was helpful and professional and kind. The equipment was new and clean. The flight was on-time and uneventful. I would fly this airline again any day of the week."
Contra: "The entertainment screen was difficult to see when the person in front of me reclined because the screen was not perpendicular to my line of vision. I survived based on the other qualities of the flight."
Pro: "I take the flight from ZRH to SFO several times a year. Typically on time, typically good service, food and drinks"
Contra: "The entertainment on the Airbus 340 is outdated and the screens are terrible but that is the only problem. ugh better with the new 777. Unfortunately not the case today"
Pro: "The service is the best!!! I enjoyed everything!!"
Pro: "The flight from SFO to ZRH was in a newly fitted 777. The seats were very comfortable and we had plenty of leg room in economy class. Great and extremely nice flight attendants - thank you!"
Contra: "The flight from ZRH to SFO was in an older 777 and the seats were very uncomfortable with limited leg room in economy. This flight was not very enjoyable. I have to say though that the very friendly and helpful flight attendants were compensating for this. Thank you!"
Pro: "Great service and flight. Thank you kayak for the great price!!"
Pro: "There was metalic box underneath the seat in front of me (entertainment box), that did not leave any room to stretch my legs"
Contra: "This box blocked any room to stretch my legs. The flight was full and I did not have the chance of changing seats. Flying 13 hours in this situation is unacceptable."
Pro: "Crew was amazing. So patient and accommodating, even when passengers were a bit impatient. Cabin was clean, and it was good to have blankets and pillow on a long flight."
Contra: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Food was okay but not substantial. Comfort was terrible in my seat - for some reason I had a seat with a metal box underneath so I could not stretch my legs. And the fellow next to me, in the middle, was over 6 feet and was VERY uncomfortable, even though he had legroom. There were good options for entertainment, but it was unreliable and had to be restarted once. Also, the screen was terrible quality and I could not see no matter how I adjust the screen angle or the light."
Pro: "Service was excellent and very friendly."
Contra: "The seats are terrible. Narrow, the armrests edgy and only partially movable. A large metal box under the seat takes away 2/3 of the legroom. The entertainment system is outdated, screen has no contrast and can only be viewed at a straight angle, which is impossible as soon as the seat is reclined."
Pro: "The crew did a great job of handling our 2-hour delay in starting from Zurich - we were kept updated on what was happening, the aircraft was at a comfortable temperature (not too hot, not too cold), and we were given water during the wait. Also, during the flight, the crew kept coming through with more water, which was VERY NICE! Plus, the moist towels prior to landing. It makes a big difference in comfort levels for such a long flight."
Contra: "The on-board entertainment system was old and very clumsy to handle (with the embedded control in the arm rest). Also, it crashed on me two times and had to be re-booted, which was frustrating and took a long time every time it happened."
Pro: "The ground and aircraft staff are very professional, friendly and helpful."
Contra: "The aircraft was old, with subpar AC. We would either get freezing or hot and stuffy air. The seats were quite uncomfortable, worse than on recent trips with other airlines (Air Canada, United, Air France). Neither of our entertainment systems worked, despite the best efforts from the crew to reset them. Finally, the food was very disappointing for a European airline."
Contra: "Very uncomfortable seats, very hard. The cabin was cold and there was no possibility to adjust blowers. Old entertainment sets with poor variety of choices to watch."
Pro: "Service is above average, flight attendants very friendly and helpful."
Contra: "Only one choice of the lunch dishes was available, since they had run out of the second one."
Pro: "Nice smooth flight, good service, comfort, food, crew, and entertainment. Crying toddlers made it hard to sleep."
Contra: "I paid for a seat on the aisle with extra leg room. Seat 24D. There was only minimal foot space because of some type of metal box under seat 23D. I don't think that I should had to pay $45 for the extra leg room just to receive cramped foot space."
Pro: "Loved the entertainment. Food was great!"
Contra: "There was no indication of what line went where while in the boarding process. Nobody told us that we needed to get a blue stamp (??) on our boarding ticket, for what I still don't know. So then we needed to get in ANOTHER line and get the stamp and then stand in line AGAIN just to get on the plane! For being Swiss you'd think you'd have this part down AT LEAST! Boarding by seat number would have been a better idea. Everybody was all over the place getting their bags stored above."
Pro: "The flight crew were great very friendly & service oriented as far as getting your food & water"
Contra: "My partner & I were given separate seats. We tired to reserve our seats online according to instructions & time but the online registration wasn't working properly. We had to wait til we were at the airport to do that. When checking in we were told we had to wait til onboard? Then once on board told no. So we were not able to sit together & weren't even in the same area of the plane. We also had an old plane & seats very uncomfortable. The movie screen was barely visible so basically u could just listen."
Pro: "Food was overall not bad. It would have been nice to have more snack options if I was hungry in between meals."
Contra: "Landed early but there was no gate so we just sat on the runway. We also sat on the runway long past when we were supposed to arrive. I'm not sure why there still was no gate when we passed the time that we were supposed to arrive. There were also no power outlets in the plane. For such a long flight, it would be great to have power outlets to charge devices while flying. Flight was also kept very cold. Not very good entertainment options."
Pro: "As above."
Contra: "As above."
Contra: "seats not too comfortable, if seated right next to the toilet I should pay a lower fare!"
Contra: "Everything was great."
Pro: "Very professional !"
Contra: "The first coffee given at the beginning of the journey,was very good,(which is in general unusual during the flights), but the one given at the end of the trip was bad."
Contra: "some food was frozen when served (salad and cheese). Coffee wasn't that great either."
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: "Crew was nice, seats were comfortable"
Contra: "I enjoyed the flight"
Contra: "Food had only beef options"
Contra: "- Boarding took too much time because the airline called all passengers to board, instead of asking to board by their seat zone. - The space between seat is too narrow so I couldn't stretch my legs. - The seats are very old and little bit dirty - The seats were not properly cleaned."
Contra: "Leg room Food choices"
Contra: "Horrible service I will never go with this airline The attendants never came to us when we needed them this is my second time The attendants don’t care and don’t even love k at you"
Contra: "I nearly missed my connecting flight because of how poorly organized Ataturk airport is. Disembarking was extremely time consuming; there were few signs instructing connecting passengers where to go; and the employees of the airport were extremely unhelpful and gave conflicting information. I made my flight with only minutes to spare after going through two security and passport checkpoints and sprinting an entire wing of the airport. I will never fly through Ataturk (or anywhere in Turkey) again."
Pro: "For once, on time departure. Quick boarding. Courteous service."
Contra: "Cabin a little too cold for passengers around me."
Pro: "Every thing"
Contra: "Every thing was nice"
Contra: "Staff seemed to not care about passengers. Could partially be a language/cultural barrier, but i have consistently noticed staff just want to push through their tasks. Actual service is not a priority it seems. Another issue, often times they run out of food."
Pro: "Crew was very nice and the seats are comfortable"
Contra: "The kosher food was bad"
Pro: "The flight crew was excellent. Very attentive, even in coach. Amenities were good. The food was adequate to good."
Contra: "The seats were a bit hard. Still, the legroom wasn't any worse than a domestic flight."
Pro: "The entertainment, the food, the free wine."
Contra: "The small space of the economy seating area. It was very crowded and the staff wasn’t too keen on taking plates from passengers after they’ve eaten so often we were stuck with our trays and couldn’t get up or move. Boarding was a pain from Istanbul. The security check was chaotic and I wish they had a more sanitary way of checking everyone’s bags instead of using the same pair of gloves to search every passenger’s bag and do a body check."
Pro: "My kids, wife and I loved flying to Turkish Airlines. Always on time, tasty and nutritious food, wonderful staff who help you with smile on their faces. Sure, we'll fly Turkish Airlines from now on."
Contra: "Nothing at all."
Pro: "The food was SUPER DELICIOUS! The seats were comfortable, the movie selection is great, and the staff's care and commitment to customer happiness is unmatched!"
Contra: "Not enough bathrooms. Very long lines to go to the bathroom."
Contra: "No, disappointments:)"
Pro: "Food was fine"
Contra: "delay time and Istanbul airport"
Pro: "The best airline to Europe! Period! Boing in the new 777 and has very comfortable seats with plenty of room for your feet even in economy class. Huge number of movies and TV shows. The food is excellent. Only missing part is to have some candies or chocolates for the 13 hour trip for San Francisco to Istanbul. You can not beat their price. Crew is very friendly and helpful at the same time. Slippers and socks they give you in economy class + cotton blanket of course make you feel you are 1st class traveler. What else? You name it and it is there. Will fly again with Turkish airlines."
Pro: "Fantastic onboard entertainment. Lots of current movies and tv shows to watch. Music was available, too. Even a camera under the plane to see what you’re flying over...usually clouds. USB charging, big screens in the headrests, games, remote control with keyboard and game controller, network cable for laptops without Wi-Fi even. The had pillows and blankets on every seat when we arrived and handed out hot towels before the first meal. They also provided a kit with eye mask, toothbrush, cologne, and slippers. Far better than we expected."
Contra: "We were subjected to at least five security checks after our transfer in Istanbul. At the gate they checked our passports and boarding passes five times before boarding, every carry on bag was searched and every person was patted down. We even watched while one man held up his baby for a guard to pat the baby down! This was all after the security we’d received to get to our gate. So, if you left the gate to use the bathroom, you had to go through all the checks again."
Pro: "Food is great. Flight attendants were very helpful. Entertainment options are great. Comfy seats. Short flight."
Contra: "Istanbul airport is crowded. Looking forward to the new airport."
Pro: "Everything was perfect. I enjoyed my flight specially delicious food. I will definitely fly again by Turkish Airlines. I also recommend to other travelers."
Contra: "The flight arrived a little late. It was not on time."
Pro: "Great seating & service"
Contra: "Non stop talking people behind me!!!!"
Pro: "service was excellent!"
Contra: "food wasn't enough or good"
Pro: "Good food and courteous service."
Contra: "I was crowded in amongst a family who decided to camp in my row of 3 seats. (Literally, on the floor.) I could not move because I needed the bulkhead and aisle seat to stretch my legs. I am a Diabetic and needed it for circulation. I did not say anything but, the stewardess should have made one of the people go back to their seat as he was wedged near the window and sitting on the floor. It made my 13.25 hours trip very uncomfortable. They had a child with them so, I didn't wish to complain while on board."
Pro: "entertainment selection"
Contra: "entertainment console was a bit clunky and old flight left 2 hrs later than scheduled."
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)."
Pro: "Excellent price, customer service & we enjoyed it. Thank you."
Pro: "This was my first flight with Turskis Airlines and my best experience with flying to Europe. The food was excellent; we had two hot delicious meals (best airplane food I ever had). The crew was the best - professional yet friendly. TA airfares are cheaper than other airlines so I could spend one day in Istanbul. That alone is worth it!"
Contra: "Flight was cancelled and I was rebooked 24hrs later! Not okay!"
Pro: "The seats had a decent amount of leg room."
Contra: "Stuck in Istanbul airport for three days because of snow. The way the airline handled it was APPALLING. Second night stood in line for a hotel for over four hours only to find out at 3am that there weren't any more. And none of that captures the insanity of being sent to a transfer desk with no way out except buying a Turkish visa and going through immigration. Inexcusable. I have traveled to over 40 countries in the past 30+ years and this was beyond the pale, absolutely a nightmare, and almost all of it (excepting the actual snow delay) in the airline's control. NEVER FLY THIS AIRLINE THROUGH ISTANBUL."
Pro: "The in-flight entertainment was above average. The in-flight crew was fine, although not particularly gracious or kind."
Contra: "The on-ground customer service in Istanbul was the worst experience I have ever had with humans in my whole life. They were unhelpful, rude, blatantly ignored people, dismissive, walked away from customers when they didn't want to deal with them, did not do anything to keep order when people were cutting in line after people were waiting for 4+ hours. I will avoid flying Turkish Airlines as best I can."
Pro: "Amazing service and comfortable environment. The really take care of you"
Contra: "Boarding Process could be a little streamlined. Guess we are used to the regulated process"
Contra: "First the flight was delayed 2 hours and then we sat on the plane for 7 hours before take-off, while the crew took care of several issues. Ridiculous. Should have made us wait at the airport gate so we could have eaten proper food and had wifi."
Contra: "Too many seats. Very uncomfortable on a long trip."
Contra: "Everything from good to entertainment"
Pro: "Food and the service"
Contra: "Ground crew, misleading information"
Pro: "Great service. On time. Friendly personnel."

Pro: "Overall the flight was very comfortable."
Pro: "Excellent crew and clean aircraft"
Contra: "Sat on tarmac for 20 mins because we were early..."
Pro: "The crew was communicative and courteous."
Contra: "There was a flight delay in LAX due to a maintenance issue. The captain and crew informed us before we boarded the plane which was excellent. However, they could not figure out what was wrong with the planed and delayed the boarding for another 3 hours, putting our 1900 departure time to 2100."
Contra: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"
Pro: "Very comfortable, no complaints."
Pro: "Nice new seats"
Contra: "Was too warm inside the plane. Boarding address was mobbed and not very well managed"
Contra: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"
Contra: "THE FLIGHT WAS 5 HOURS LATE"
Pro: "It is a busy travel day and this flight was unbelievably smooth. The entire crew was competent and friendly."
Pro: "Overall service was great."
Contra: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pro: "Having three seats."
Contra: "I had three seats to myself! After getting elbowed all the way from Amsterdam to Minneapolis, I was tired and I slept three good hours."
Pro: "Better than average entertainment system for domestic flights."
Contra: "Boarding done against logic: my seat was in the last 5 rows of the cabin and I was scheduled to board in the final group. When I got to my seat the first 30 rows were nearly fully, but the back of the plane was half empty. The whole time the gate agent was urging passengers to move faster through the aisle, but Delta should really rethink its boarding strategy. It shouldn't take 40 minutes to board a 757."
Pro: "Transfer f from first flight leg"
Contra: "Food and the 757 lay out"
Pro: "Great service"
Contra: "Look, if your kid is so young that he can’t get in a plane without screaming for four hours, you shouldn’t bring him on a plane and subject 200 people to that. It’s rude and selfish."
Contra: "Sat on the runway for over an hour to get the gate. Unacceptable."
Pro: "Friendly staff"
Contra: "Napkins stuffed in the overhead to fix presumably the rattles."
Pro: "The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule"
Contra: "We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4."
Pro: "Didnt expect dinner but was served"
Contra: "Delayed flight, offset entertainment, touch screen un responsive"
Pro: "Everything went smoothly - very happy"
Pro: "crew kept a great attitude throughout"

Pro: "They were comprehensive and tried to move fast"
Contra: "Delayed flight because they didn’t had the crew ready"
Pro: "Boarding was fine. And service was good."
Contra: "TV controls didn’t work. So I couldn’t watch anything for the 4+ hour flight."
Pro: "The movie selection is very good"
Contra: "Both boarding the flight and getting off the flight were severely delayed. The flight attendants also seemed to ignore half the plane when handing out drinks and when picking up trash. I had to flag someone down after they had simply walked past my row both times."
Contra: "Flight was delayed by 2 hrs. Annoying!"
Pro: "What an easy flight. Run very well!"
Contra: "The crew seemed a bit tired, but it’s the season"
Pro: "We were not happy with our flight my flight got cancelled 3 times I miss work they need to reimburse us and also reimburses the hotel cuz we had to stay at a hotel because they cancelled our flight three times and then our flight that we went out on Monday was late because of a flight attendant arriving late to the hotel to the airport"
Pro: "The temp"
Contra: "It was too hot."
Pro: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Contra: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."
Contra: "Delayed for an hour and fifteen minutes"
Pro: "The crew on Delta create a welcome atmosphere every time I have flown with them."
Pro: "The entertainment options and noticing the little touches that Delta is making to improve the brand and experience."
Contra: "Seems like there are legacy "attitude" issues with the crew. I sat on the aisle yesterday, and SEVERAL times I was bumped, quite rudely, by passing crew. In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."
Contra: "Horrible wait if nearly 30 minutes after landing"
Pro: "The boarding was efficient"
Contra: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."
Contra: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"

Pro: "I had to pay 75 USD for 3.6 KG extra. Very annal"
Pro: "Seat size was decent, not like us airlines, there’s actually space for you knees."
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"

Pro: "Wonderful flight attendant. (I think his name was Stephen?)"
Contra: "Plane took off and landed late.. Few amenities near the gate. Odd procedure to have everyone go through security into waiting area."
Contra: "Designs of Business Class seatings need some improvement. It seemed there was waste of useful space. Therefore, the area for Business Class seating was big but there were not enough space for everything."

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"
Contra: "We flew from TLV to Skopje via Vienna. None of the flight were on time and there was zero communication about the flight status. We arrived to the gate to start the boarding and they just told us wait here for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes we were asked to wait another 20 minutes. Only when we missed the take off time by 10 minutes they bothered to update us and inform us that the flight is being delayed in 2 hours."

Pro: "Whole process of checking in, security, and boarding was very easy."
Pro: "Great grew, great flight. Thank you!"
Pro: "Food, entertainment."
Contra: "Aircraft was older 777 and lavatories weren't very clean. Upon landing in Vienna, my mobility walker (tagged to be brought up to me at jetway) was sent to my connecting flight to Sophia. The flight crew refused to intercept it and have it brought up to me at the aircraft. To make matters much, much worse, the flight crew eventually gave up and left, leaving me LOCKED inside the jetway for over 30 minutes after calling for a wheelchair. The replentishment crew refused to let me out of the locked jetway. Only after the wheelchair arrived was I let out of the locked jetway. I was taken to the Austrian Airlines service center where I lodged a formal complaint. Supervisor/Rene refused to upgrade my seat in any fashion to compensate for my distress. He did, however, arrange for me to given access to the VIP lounge and then taken to my VIE-SOF gate. Had I had a shorter layover, I would have missed my connecting flight."
Pro: "Good movie selection on flight"
Contra: "Got bumped from the seat I reserved after boarding without explanation and when I explained I was traveling with a group was simply told that's too bad. Their customer service is awful and had already submitted a complaint for a return flight which was never followed up on."
Pro: "No unnecessary waiting. Excellent service!!!"
Pro: "The plane itself was ok, the food also was ok."
Contra: "As usual, boarding in Miami airport is awful which is not exactly coming from austrian airlines, but they also took part in the unpleasant experience. The announcements were badly articulated, the boarding time was delayed and so on. Onboard, part of the crew completely refused to speak english."
Pro: "Their first class looked very comfy"
Pro: "In-flight magazine was interesting."
Contra: "Flight was delayed 35 minutes. I made my connection. But heard one woman say she and her husband would miss hers."
Pro: "Salzburg airport connection first leg flight"
Pro: "Flight was cancelled. Had to wait in the airport with kids."
Contra: "It was advertised as Austrian Airlines but when the details came through afterwards only then did it state that it was a United Airlines flight. So, I can't rate this flight because it had nothing to do with Austrian Airlines. You need to update your site so that it clearly states "Operated by..." when people are booking."
Pro: "best blanket any business class."
Pro: "The crew"
Contra: "The lack of space. It was a good thing it was a short flight"
Pro: "Seat comfort."
Contra: "Food selection."
Pro: "Food and crew were good"
Contra: "The seats recline back so far that it really intrudes into the space of the person behind you. At one point the guy in front of me reclined back so far and fast it slammed my eReader and spilled my coffee. Also the touch screen media app does not work well on Lufthansa."
Pro: "Upgraded to business class for a reasonable fee."
Pro: "Literally one of the worst check in experiences I have ever had traveling"
Contra: "The person checking me in could have given me a few minutes to help me understand the flight delay"
Pro: "Cabin crew's service was excellent! Very attentive and friendly. Special diet (gluten-free) dinner was delicious. Lavatories located downstairs."
Contra: "Economy seating was too tight. Not enough space or leg room."
Contra: "Sittinf in the middle"
Pro: "Comfortable seats, good selections of movies for entertainment. Polite flight attendants. Overall a relaxing trip."
Contra: "Weak selection of TV shows for entertainment, but movies selections were very good so overall not a real problem."
Pro: "Flight crew was amazing, as well as the first meal....restaurant quality."
Pro: "They were great with service"
Contra: "Having to have to close my window shade so I couldn't see outside"

Pro: "Gate, boarding and smooth sailing on A380 bus by the pilots"
Pro: "Excellent crew. Great entertainment options."
Pro: "Crew very nice and carefull"
Contra: "My luggage was destroied ;-("
Pro: "Upstairs deck for economy is a small space but is relatively quiet. Boarding was relatively quick through electronic gates where you scan your boarding card. Flight attendant was very personable. She was checking some passenger names as some seemed to have switched seats and remembered mine for the rest of the flight. Something you usually get in business class but a first for me in economy. They also came around several times during the flight with water/juice, and snacks. Entertainment was ok. A mixture of newer movies available."
Contra: "Like all economy seating not much space especially when the person in front reclines their seat. This makes getting in and out of the seat a little difficult. Food a bit limited. 2 main meals for this flight (lunch/dinner) - chicken or pasta for the first one and beef or pasta (again) for the pre-landing meal. Also the attendant didn’t know the translation of the pasta dish from German to English so that was a bit disappointing. One thing to note. I flew Hamburg to Frankfurt to connect to the San Francisco flight with a 1 hour layover. You need to go through passport control in FRA and then I hustled to get to the gate. They were boarding as I arrived but maybe 10 minutes later and I would have missed my flight. No issues with the airline just a cautionary note on the layover time. I would likely book an earlier connecting flight to give a bit more time."
Pro: "The flight attendants were so friendly and helpful. The food was good...didn't even have to pay for food or wine. On-board entertainment was excellent. I would fly Lufthansa any time!"
Pro: "Comfort and space"
Contra: "Plane was scheduled to depart at 10:30 and didn't leave ground until 11:40, unacceptable."
Pro: "Lufthansa has it all together and knows how to fly. I recommend to everyone!"
Pro: "Food was pretty good,Lufthansa one of the best companies to fly with."
Contra: "delayed boarding then waited three hours after we boarded for deicing. The piolet and crew did not update us. Made the flight very long."
Pro: "All worked as expected"
Contra: "No remarks to make"
Pro: "Quiet comfortable flight"
Contra: "Unorganized biarding and no labeling on hallway what direction to take."
Contra: "Unable to make the flight due to connecting flight being cancelled."
Pro: "Flight attendants were great, friendly, courteous and responsive. The relaxation and mediation program was great! Boarding was fluent and easy."
Contra: "No matter what you try to order on the airplane is totally disgusting. If it's not overloaded with cheese and tomato sauce then it's overcompensated with spices (salt or chili). I will never understand why it is so hard to provide simple, fresh and enjoyable meals. Chairs in economy are rarely cleaned up and one can see on the cushions that they are worn out and have lost their padding making the seats very uncomfortable. There was no foot rest available (which is such a simple addition that helps a lot) and the "holder pocket" on the seat in front was a simple net completely useless. Tables were dirty suggesting they were never cleaned and disinfected. Knowing that the highest source of viruses are the tray tables and the pockets in front I would expect attention to be focused on those- it not only impacts the health of the traveler but more important that of the crew. Why is it so hard to think of this business two fold: make revenue but mostly be kind to humans."
Pro: "The positive attitude of the crew members. Even though flight long they continued to smile. Very smooth flying and plane on time. Free drinks including alcohol."
Contra: "Cramped conditions."
Pro: "Lufthansa flights are by far the best way to fly transatlantic!!"
Contra: "We were offered two hot meals, each time with the same 2 choices. That's not much to choose from..."
Contra: "The food was not enough, not taste. For 11 hours only two meals. I wanted to change my meal with another they refused"
Pro: "Everything else"
Contra: "Boarding was even more chaotic. No clear signs for premium economy."
Pro: "Food was very good, super nice crew. Good selection of movies. Boarding was great, we are seniors, we didn't ask for assistance beforehand, but the person at the gate called us over and had us board early. Much appreciated!"
Contra: "Seats were just too cramped. We chose seats and paid extra to do that, but the seating charts really didn't give a very good idea of what to expect or how to choose. Announcements were to difficult to understand. Also in the gate area, I couldn't understand names at all. Need to slow down and speak more clearly."
Contra: "11 hours of crying babies was too much. The practice of placing 4 cribs together on the bulkhead encouraged one baby to set the others off screaming. The toddler siblings then started fussing, the parents were then jumping up and down, jostling the other passengers, it was a nightmare! Hated every minute of it."
Pro: "I liked how organized the crews are. The flight attendants are driven by efficiency. Things were done quickly like serving drinks and water. Appreciated having the hand towel to wipe the hands before serving the meals."
Contra: "I fly economy class with United and Lufthansa when I travel from the US to Asia or Europe. Lufthansa seats feel narrower. I am only 1.62 meters in height. I felt there was not enough room for a 12+ hour flight (delayed by one hour). The small leg room began to take a toll after 6 hours of flight."
Pro: "Seat backs are flatter, which for me (a shorter woman) is much more comfortable than the more contoured seats on other airlines."
Contra: "Very dry sandwiches."
Contra: "This long haul flight was on an Airbus plane with five restrooms in the basement. There was not enough space to accommodate people waiting in the basement so people had to stand on stairs or by the galley. Flight attendants kept on telling people not to do so but there was simply not enough space."
Pro: "going home"
Contra: "support call line entertainment food connection time all sub standard in economy plus... will not use again."
Pro: "The price for a direct flight was reasonable"
Contra: "Wifi wasn't working and movie selection poor. No individual screens especially for a 10 hr flight. Staff were not that friendly either. Old plane and small seats. I would rather pay more for a more comfortable flight."
Contra: "I did not like the surprise of having to pay for a seat reservation, once I had purchased my tickets. This was costly and certainly unexpected."
Contra: "It was long terrible 24 hr journey with a pregnant wife"
Pro: "Clean, good pilots and quick"
Contra: "Food was bad"
Pro: "The whole flight was very comfortable"
Contra: "all the food relied on bell pepper for flavor. Bell pepper is highly overrated"
Pro: "Food was terrible"
Contra: "Toilets were not clean"
Pro: "The plane was incredible,the comfort,service,food was outstanding!I have been flying with many airlines over many years but this was amazing!!!Thank you,Lufthansa!"
Contra: "No complaints"
Pro: "Good flight, liked the extra leg room."
Contra: "While on board, the flight attendants forgot to give me food. They gave me drinks, but good until I asked another attendant. Bad service!!!"
Pro: "It was good because I was placed in EconomyPlus"
Contra: "Was not able to check-in on line and I could not book my seat - so I was just assigned seating. Fortunately it worked and I got the window seat on the shorter flights and an aisle seat for the longer flight."
Pro: "Constant food & drinks; large selection of movies, shows, music, games. Very courteous staff."
Pro: "Great entertainment options"

Pro: "Crew members were very friendly and efficient."
Contra: "Seat felt very cramped, even more than usual . I could barely get in /out of my seat if the seat in front of me was reclined."
Pro: "The crew was excellent; professional and calm The movie selection was great The plane was quite new and comfortable"
Contra: "The boarding was chaotic for such a large plane; why don't they board by row numbers? My special meal was not very tasty"
Pro: "crew was great boarding was fine"
Contra: "Chicken dinner tasted awful Seat spacing (specially when front passenger reclines )very crowded"
