Cons: "La comida, no tenía buen sabor. El avión es poco cómodo (Airbus A340, clase económica)."
Cons: "Boarding from terminal F. Very far away located. Then transfer by bus to the main terminal 2. Two floor climbed by stairs. Then gate changed. Passengers who arrived later accessed directly through main terminal 2 to the gate. No entertainment on board at all. A321 plane is not comfortable. 15 min. delay no so bad."
Cons: "To Whom It May Concern, My name is Eliezer Korbman. I was a passenger on LH403 with service to Frankfurt, Germany. Upon reaching cruising altitude and prior to dinner service, a Lufthansa stewardess reached across my midsection, activated the reclining mechanism and forcefully returned my seat to its upright position - waking me up to eat. (You may conduct your own investigation, but there was no prior announcement.) I politely declined, but was later denied dinner and breakfast. To clarify, I was unable to eat or sleep. This is utterly disgusting service. I am incredibly disappointed in Lufthansa for the way that I was treated aboard LH403. Unless I can be persuaded otherwise, I will be taking my business elsewhere. Garbage service! Shame on you Lufthansa!"

Cons: "The meal was served rather slowly. I think there ius a place for improvement there."
Cons: "we were with 2 kids (1 Child and 1 baby). They ground crew did not allow us to board first (like usually). We had to wait until the economy boarding, it became too crowded and was hard to reach the airplane with the kids. regards"
Cons: "the waiting before the boarding, the Frankfurt airport gate for telaviv is different from the other gates, no store, no drinking water except one small counter that sell water and other food in very high prices, I except to have at least free water in the gate, excepsialy when we wait their more than hour an half"

Pros: "Everything was OK"

Pros: "The food, The service, the seets."
Pros: "Do you know what it is like for a vegetarian gluten free person to order gluten free vegetarian and not get it? We confirmed by phone in advance and yet no such meal was provided. If Lufthansa does have such a meal they should say it at the time if reservations. Obviously someone didn't care enough."
Cons: "Do you know what it is like for a vegetarian gluten free person to order gluten free vegetarian and not get it? We confirmed by phone in advance and yet no such meal was provided. If Lufthansa does have such a meal they should say it at the time if reservations. Obviously someone didn't care enough."
Pros: "They had a great selection of movies, each passenger received a blanket and pillow without having to ask, the crew was friendly and professional, and the takeoff and landing were smooth."
Cons: "During the reservation process it seemed that the ticket included luggage, and only when I received the ticket I discovered that I had to pay 30 Euro extra, each way, to check in luggage. The ticket was by no means low-cost, so I don't understand why that wasn't included in the price. And the food could have been much better, I really couldn't eat anything and I usually like airline food... :) Thanks!"
Pros: "The price was right!"
Cons: "I know the saying “you get what you pay for”, but good service from the flight attendants should be expected in the price. It was hard to get a greeting or a smile from them, far from prompt delivery of food or coffee ordered. We were traveling with two kids under 5, but there was no help offered. You are expected to pay for any and all food or drinks, including water. The airline could at least offer free water. The meal quality was mediocre for the price paid, and their stock ran out pretty fast."
Cons: "crew seemed a tad sour. came around with morning tea but without proper cups. attendant seemed annoyed when my neighbor asked for a paper cup in lieu of the plastic juice cup he already had. not a big deal but kinda weird"
Cons: "Crew was rude and the seats had astoundingly little leg room. Plus they tried to upcharge for everything. Will never fly with this airline again."

Cons: "Pedí que me manden la factura del vuelo y no me a llegado nunca."
Pros: "Loved the staff. As far as my experience flying Iberia for the first time is concerned, the the staff was very attentive and courteous. The food was not bad either as it was pretty good and included many beverage options. Would like to see how they do for flights lasting longer than 8 hours. Mine was only about 5 and a half hours from Madrid to Tel Aviv."

We were boarded In Budapest and about two hours later they made as deplane after sitting in the hot plane for two hours. It was around 10 PM and no food was available at the airport, so I could not feed my four-year-old son ."
Cons: "JFK-Madrid flight got delayed by 3 hours which would cause me to miss my connection for Madrid-Split (~2 hour layover), I asked the Iberia representatives at JFK about changing the flight and they reassured me that “the connecting flight would hold for us” and “no need to change our flight”. To our surprise the connecting flight already left when we arrived to Madrid. It’s clear that this was a case of “not our problem” from the JFK Iberia ticket agent. Rather than helping us find a viable alternative for our flight (namely a flight that doesn’t arrive more than a full day later) before leaving for Madrid they shipped us to Madrid where there were poor/no options for getting to Split at the original planned time. I’m very upset that I’m going arrive more than a day late to my destination and that I was blatantly lied to by the Iberia agent at JFK, never ever going to book a flight with Iberia again."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very uncomfortable plane/ seats"
Pros: "Fairly standard international flight. In flight meals were fine. Seats were spacious enough (6’3” I need the legroom)."
Cons: "Not a terrible negative in the slightest; the onboard entertainment won’t load until the plane is in crushing altitude. Thought it was weird as that has never happened before, but not really a problem"
Pros: "The entertainment system is pretty good. Touch screens work great, and you can charge your phone. The plane itself is fairly up-to-date, and the headrest is adjustable and very comfortable."
Cons: "I am 6' / 183cm and 210lbs / 95 kg. The seats are quite narrow, and little legroom. I don't think I'll fly them again."

Pros: "Usually on time"
Cons: "Too crowd. Bad food. They do not clean at all between flights."
Pros: "The crew was nice and attentive. Leg room in the extra leg room seat was absolutely worth the extra fee."
Cons: "Connectors always seem to be delayed causing late boarding."
Cons: "They did not even serve water for a 4-hour flight. We did not know that this was a flight that you had to pay for everything."
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 2 hours they changed the gate # My notifications in my phone were wrong overall poor management My seat was behind a couple with two children that cried and cried and screamed during the flight, couldnt sleep not even with the headphones helped listening to those children crying. Iberia offered to check in my luggage so i can pick it up at my final destination, but my bag never made it. Had to wait two days woth no clothes or work items i needed in my luggage.

Pros: "Meal and drinks"
Cons: "Flight was extremely packed and 5 hours long. It was loterlly from hell."

Cons: "Despite the fact I had payed for my seats 7 months earlier and the calls I made to their call center to confirm them, they gave the seats to someone else and assigned me last row seats, next to the bathrooms and that did not recline. No compensation offered."
Pros: "extremely kind personnel"
Cons: "the food was not like you would expect in Business Class, there was no pasta less although I was on raw 3!!!"
Pros: "Flight time and efficiency was fine."
Cons: "BA doesn't give food. Must purchase... No problem!! BA doesn't accept USA or China CC or debit. I was starving! After using on earlier flight, I knew I could use Apple Pay. Old, dumb, inconsiderate, rude flight attendant wouldn't even attempt trying alternative payment. She humiliated me. I was uncomfortable, embarrassed, hungry, and furious the entire flight. Never ever again! British Airways is incompetent!"
Cons: "The flight from Madrid to tel aviv was very crowded, no place to hand bag, the seat wasn't comfortable like in a low cost flight. The was no TV, not even music. To bad"

Cons: "the last truck (madrid - tel aviv) was not with the same airbus that the 3 others (tel aviv - madrid / madrid - buenos aires / buenos aires madrid)... it was like flying in low cost with food (even the chair could not go backwards...very bad the last one"
Cons: "Crew was good but they could be friendlier (i.e. smile).."
Pros: "Helpful staff."
Cons: "Eliminate an acceptable two and a half hours delay in take off time due to catering planning issues."
Cons: "Flight was more than 2 hours late - same as the flight from Columbus to Toronto when we left- the ground crew did not know or care where the plane (a replacement craft) was coming from or when it arrived and let it sit on the ramp for about 15 minutes before marshaling it in and the seats we got after waiting all that time were excessively worn and felt like we were sitting in bowls. The logistics either of Air Canada or at the Toronto airport for domestic flights stinks. I will try to avoid both in future."

Pros: "Better than expected"
Pros: "Te tightest seat ever, and I'am 75 Fair treatment by the crew Seatwise am not looking forward yo my return in a month Food os fair"

Cons: "Entertainment only available for purchase with a tablet rental. Corners of the floor were a little dirty."
Cons: "We were delayed for several hours. I could’ve and should’ve driven to Toronto because I would’ve made it there a lot quicker. The crew members were rude and clearly unhappy to be working. None of them were accommodating. It was a very unpleasant way to start my trip."
Cons: "Information provided on delays was limited and information on connecting by flights was incorrect"
Pros: "the concept"
Cons: "the reality"
Pros: "Very good plane, comfortable and new. Food is okay but they were short with all the options (the back of the plane had no option for dinner due to lack of meals)"
Cons: "The crew were nice but lazy. Whenever someone called them through the chair system they just ignore the call. After a few time I tried to call them I just went to their area to ask things."
Pros: "The flight was so not packed. There were rows and rows of empty seats. I had a row to myself to sleep on, it was amazing."
Cons: "Food wasn't great. Especially breakfast"
Cons: "The way I was treated upon my landing in Toronto. When I missed my flight I had to stay at the airport from 10:30pm until 9:30am and there was nothing offered. No place to sleep or any compensation for food. I spoke with others that had food vouchers and others got toiletries. I'm not impressed."

Cons: "food was not fresh, hot meal was pretty terrible in both 2 flights"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Cons: "I booked my flight from Vancouver to Kiev The first flight it's to Toronto then to Kiev.. and when Went to the counter in Kiev they said sorry but Turkish airline didn't send my booking to kanda airline so I missed all my flight schedule I didn't wait I bought another ticket to Kiev in the same date on Lufthansa airline And it cost me like 1945c$"
Pros: "Excellent fight.... comfortable and easy..."
Cons: "Crew where a bit slow... and the use of 4! Languages for announcement was annoying..."

Cons: "I could not travel due to the fact that Im pregnant and it is of really high risk and the airline did not help me. I lost my money and could not even get a credit to travel later."
Cons: "They changed our chosen seats so we had to sit in the middle. No complimentary food or snacks served on a 5 hour flight. It would have been good to know that ahead of time so we could have brought something to eat for lunch."
Pros: "I can't say there is much in the way of customer service provided during this entire flight."
Cons: "They wouldn't let us upgrade even though there is tons of empty seats in first class, and the flight crew wouldn't even make eye contact or answer call lights the entire flight! Was one of my worst experiences with Air Canada."
Pros: "Incredible plane!!"
Cons: "Bathrooms and seats need to be longer!"
Pros: "I love that I had a direct flight for my destination, from TLV to Pearson Int'l, at a decent price. This is usually hard to come by. The in flight entertainment options are very good. The online check-in process worked very well."
Cons: "The service on my original TLV-Pearson Flight (Dec 23rd am) was not great. The staff sat in the back gossiping the entire time and looked offended every time I came to ask a question or ask for something - they would get silent and just sit there, like I was interrupting an important conversation and so I even offered to get my own stuff. Ridiculous! What happened to customer service? The food is HORRIBLE! Worst food I have ever had on a flight, and I flew to 8 countries this last year, so that says a lot. I'd recommend only eating food you bring, or just starving yourself."
Pros: "The cost is to high especially not coming with a meal"
Pros: "The flight was good."
Cons: "I ordered a kosher meal, but they did not have it."
Pros: "Food was not included in a 5 1/2 hour flight. Which it should be."

Cons: "Even though I reconfirmed my kosher food, it was not on the plane."
Pros: "Good food and entitemint"
Cons: "The crew was fine but not overly friendly or helpful. They got the job done. I know that your coach seats are fairly standard in the industry. I just find the leg room to be too tight for a long distance flight."
Cons: "Leg room is HORRIBLE for a man 6 feet tall"
Cons: "Left unattended in wheelchair at two stages"
Pros: "The flight attendants were awesome. Specifically the black lady with short hair, I don't remember her name but she was fantastic and super down to earth."
Cons: "The variety of new movies was somewhat limited when compared to United."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment."
Pros: "The boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Seats weren't comfortable even with an empty seat beside me. Vegetarian meal was not good at all. The general pancake option was gone before it even got to where I was sitting and the omelette was old school flights.. Which in this case was really bad."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was awful"
Cons: "I missed this flight due to my other flight being late."
Cons: "Some crew members were not always kind."
Pros: "Good service, very attentive. Breakfast needs improvement"
Cons: "The middle seat is horrible, no room to even bend over to reach my bag which was at my feet. Very uncomfortable and no room to put the elbows because the other two seats take the elbow rests . Make it a double one or something because I couldn't even fall asleep for a second plus I got a back ache throughout the"
Cons: "I was seated in the middle of the plane right by the bathroom in the middle seat, the lady to the right had the same idea that these seats were very bad cause they don't have much space as the others also it's right next to the bathroom,, were you get to enjoy the noise from the bathroom door to flushing not include the smell,,, I wonder why you guy charge more for seats with space and you don't give discount for the worst seats in the plane,,, The lady complained and they changed here seat I had to stay there and not be able to sleep for more than 5 mints, from the reasons that I said before,,, by far the worst experience,"
Pros: "Did like the crew but didn't like the food at all.was really bad. It was cold very cold and the screen didn't work so I couldn't see the movies."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Coach is miserably small and the lights were dimmed far too late"
Pros: "The Boeing airplane was either new or upgraded with plenty of in flight entertainment. In addition it was clean and fresh. The seats seemed to have more legroom than some I have flown. I could actually use my notebook on the tray stand. I was traveling on the same plane with my wife but we could only get separate seats. I decided to ask before boarding if they could put us together for such a long flight and they took my boarding pass and actually tried. The lady I checked in with was extremely gracious. She passed our info along to the head attendant on the flight who came and found us and told us she had found seats together. We had already done some seat switching with the kind people around us and managed to get together. The head attendant was happy for us."
Cons: "Long flight, when we got close to Tel Aviv, a guy attendant who wasn't on my side yelled at me from the other ailse and scolded me for not being locked in 30 minutes ahead of time and threatened to write me up. He was red faced. The head flight attendant made a call over the intercom, I jumped up and started stowing my computer and he comes by 30 seconds later and literally yelled across the plane. He must have had to clean a bathroom up that someone let loose in. I looked on the flight time register on the screen when I was locked in and we were 35 minutes out. Not quite a rule breaker was I."
Pros: "787 atmospherics good - humidity, etc Decent price for this flight"
Cons: "Economy Cabin one of the most uncomfortable. Attendants were angry, short and disgruntled the entire flight."
Pros: "The flight was one of the more uncomfortable flights I've taken across the Atlantic, and I fly multiple times per year. The flight attendents were nasty, sarcastic, and unkind. I heard them bickering between themselves throughout the flight, which was very uncomfortable to hear as a passenger. The kosher food was barely edible. The seats were small and uncomfortable. I am under 5'5" and on the small side, and I could barely fit in my seat. I will think twice before flying Air Canada again, and I will tell other people about my experience."
Pros: "Very nice crew - something I have learned to appreciate over the years."
Cons: "Chairs were small and I was uncomfortable. Food wasn't good."
Pros: "Same as stated above"

Pros: "A long but uneventful flight."
Cons: "Nothing really. The flight was fine."
Pros: "The seats are very comfortable."
Cons: "The Newark security people were ridiculously rude. The flight was delayed due to mismanagement of the gates, and yet they yelled as us, the folks standing in line (and not making a ruckus). The flight attendants seemed bored and were inattentive."
Pros: "Crew can be nicer"
Cons: "Food and crew"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The food was great. The entertainment was great."
Cons: "There was very little room for my legs and I couldn't rest my arm on the seat next to me since the person on my left took over. It made my flight much worse. It is difficult to fly overnight when you are so uncomfortable and the price was very high in the economy area."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and the airport employees and United Airlines staff were all very friendly. No complaints. Especially for the incredibly low price of the ticket. I feel like it was a really good deal."
Cons: "The tricky luggage policies. Those seem like they are deliberately being engineered to confuse the passengers into making expensive mistakes. Who travels with no luggage (other than me) anyhow?"
Cons: "Nothing, The flight left with 45 minutes of delay, for a trip of 6 h they only gave a juice and a biscuit."
Cons: "Food was mediocre and in very small amounts, even the I have been seated in premium economy, there still was little space in the armrests and hardly any recline"
Pros: "I didn't die."
Cons: "Bedlam at gate. Three overwhelmed employees trying to kick people off the plane. So many seats on this plane that there's no legroom, but also it makes the plane so heavy that it can't take off safely unless conditions are ideal. THIS IS A REAL THING THAT REALLY HAPPENED. We left 2.5 hours late due to "weather" (not because there are too many goddamn seats on the plane.) Then, before landing, we were asked to stay in our seats so people who are late for connections can get off first. Seems reasonable. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A GATE FOR US WHEN WE LANDED! The captain said 20 minutes til we can get a gate, but he'll try to get it sooner. He apparently didn't succeed, because it was 45 minutes (!!) before we got to the gate! As a result, 3 hours 15 minutes late. Officially this is "due to weather." Sure."
Pros: "The avod system of movies was good and the channel 9 ATC was amazing to listen to."
Cons: "Multiple delays because of United crazy crew scheduling and a lazy flight crew. Flight attendants didn’t even give us the meals on a 12 hour flight. Worst flight ever."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very professional, efficient, and kind. The plane was in good condition and my seats were comfortable enough."
Cons: "The only food or entertainment offered besides a cookie or advertisement for the airline magazine had to be purchased despite the fact that it was an international plan more than 4 hours long."
Pros: "Food was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, seats are just too close for a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "It got me to Houston, but that’s about it"
Cons: "First we boarded and the plane was cools and i am traveling with my mom who is 76 and a little frail, we ask for a blanket and the response was there no blankets in economy, with a condescending tone. Unnecessary and mean"
Cons: "The website doesn’t specify that the last row has no recline!"
Cons: "Checked baggage fees!!"
Pros: "Was flying biz class and the audio wasn’t working. The flight attendant tried her best but only was able to reboot over and over again. But she didn’t offer a voucher or anything for the lack of a sound system."
Pros: "The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I already knew I was going to pay $200 to ship my boards back home (I wonder if golf clubs which are roughly the same size cost as much,) but when pre-purchasing through the app for an "oversized" bag you have to put a "one" in the checked bag and a "one" in the oversized bag even though they're the same bag, but then they charge you for two, and when you tell the check-in person that you only have one bag of course they can't issue a refund. No, they tell you that you get to call customer service when you return home."
Cons: "Everything good"
Pros: "Flight entertainment Comfortable seats"
Cons: "The crew was not very nice. The electric plug didn't work"
Cons: "Delay Food Service Plane equipment"
Cons: "Se pusieron a darle mantenimiento al avión a la hora de salir cuando ya teníamos más de seis horas esperando el avión. Y esperamos una hora más ya sentados adentro. Eso estuvo fatal. Y sin comida de San José a Houston.. fataaal!"
Cons: "Flight kept being delayed"
Cons: "One of the flighty attendents was extremely rude and aggressive. Very unpleasant."
Cons: "Sleeping in the airport"
Pros: "Updates on delays were helpful."
Cons: "2 out of 3 flights were delayed due to baggage scanning problems."
Pros: "They assigned us to seat 7 by chance because flight was too empty to balance weight..it wad a blessing to have extra room"
Cons: "I was having a terrible back pain so i went to the back where the crew was setting and relaxing and asked for a pillow..they told me they didn't have any..asked if they have a blanket and and they said yes..but never gave it too me..flight was almost 4 hours with no food..COPA AVIANCA charge less and offers full meals..."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable. The atmosphere was nice and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew took so long to help me find an overhead bin location for my carry-on bag. Also, they need to provide FREE entertainment and better snacks for international flights."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."
Pros: "SJO to Houston was excellent. Houston to Nashville was mediocre."
Pros: "Good non.stop to Costa Rica."
Cons: "Best flight to Costa Rica out of the tristate area."
Pros: "The landing was perfect"
Cons: "Having to pay $7.99 for entertainment is ridiculous, especially on an international flight. Just one more way to gouge customers. Especially as a 1K flyer, having to pay for entertainment is just a slap in the face."
Pros: "I've taken a number of airlines, but none as bad as United. I get bad weather, I wouldn't want to go up in a plane in a thunderstorm regardless of the circumstances....but I spent almost a day getting to my destination that should of only taken9 hours tops. Delay upon delay, arriving right when my next flight was leaving. Very rude staff, I saw an attendant yell at a mom and daughter like she was their mom. Non-apologetic to anyone. Their goal is to shove you in the plane and shove you out. Are they safe airline? Yes, they will get you to where you need to be...but not before they make your life hell. I don't normally do reviews on anything, but United still has me frustrated even a week later. I almost forgot, they did give $20 to eat. Do you know how expensive airport food is?"
Pros: "The customer service was very professional and collaborative."
Pros: "Crow was great , was very nice flight actually !"
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. Both going and return were so on time, it was amazing. On the way home the in flight entertainment was out for the duration of the flight and nobody in the crew really took the time to address it - thought that was a little odd. Thanks again!"
Pros: "Service was great, flight attendants are awesome. I did not have any inconveniences boarding or with my belongings."
Cons: "Food was extremely expensive. Snacks were so simple. Had to pay for entertainment. Also paid for my baggage, i thought it was included. It was a carry on and had to check that in, absurd."
Pros: "Very profesional crew with positive attitude Take off and landing within the planed time schedule"
Cons: "Not enough movies with Hebrew subtitles For people with hearing problems English subtitles for all movies can help"
Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"
Pros: "flight is OK + in business class"
Cons: "terrible delay..."
Cons: "The flight was delayed in landing. I paid to watch tv which should be free on international flights... It use to be and they kept making PA announcements the entire flight. It was very very disruptive."
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Could not cross my legs Not enough room for food and diabetes kit Flight information would not load"
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
