Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Everything went well."
Pros: "They rescheduled without our consent and didn’t give any accommodation either. We stuck at Dubai for 24 hour"
Pros: "Overall, wonderful! Appreciate that they started boarding early and that we left right on time, if not a little earlier. Was very comfortable and excellent flight. Thank you so much! Very pleasant experience."
Pros: "Great entertainment, great seating and space comfort. Overall a great experience. But, Etihad airways is still better than Emirates."
Cons: "Longer wait for boarding. The assigned zones were the last possible ones. Zone F or something similar. Flight attendants were okay, cared less for economy class. Also, Bluetooth headphones pairing did not work."
Cons: "No Bassinet provided. Staff was not friendly One of them was very rude. Food was not good. Couldn't get a vegetarian food"
Pros: "Emirates staff are polite and respectful"
Cons: "777 for travel from Dubai to Boston is not a comfortable plane"
Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "Your staff is professional and endures difficult situations patiently and professionally. Kudos to them,"
Cons: "No wi-fi even though the flight was advertised otherwise. I chose Emirates because of wi-fi availability. The reason I was given for non-availability of Wi-Fi was that the airplane was brand new...which seemed a little convoluted for these times."
Pros: "Friendly crew and more leg room on the Emirates flights"
Cons: "Passengers that leave the bathrooms dirty with urine on the floor etc. Not sure what the airline can do about that during the flights. But for longer flights maybe a damp mop or something along those lines would be helpful."
Pros: "I loved it."
Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."
Cons: "I was taken by surprise that I could not take my SLR camera on board as carry-on luggage and had to check it (they were doing this to everyone, not just me and it covered laptops, kindles, cameras, etc - everything electronic except phones). This was not done on the flight into Dubai. Also irritating was when I got to Boston, an Emirates guy cut open the packing envelope open and in the process, accidentally sliced the camera neck strap. He was, however, very apologetic and eagerly got me the info needed to submit a claim to Emirates."
Pros: "Low cholesterol meal was quiet good"
Cons: "Seats on the 777 are very uncomfortable, even more we you have a flight as long as DXB->BOS"
Cons: "We have booked two tickets separately. One for me and the other for my wife and kid. But we were travelling together. When we checkin, we told we need the seats together. But, they did not give the seat together. Also, our connection time was 2 hours for the next flight. To receive the baggage in the port of entry, it took more than 1 hour 15 mins in the carousel. After that we had to clear customs, change terminal and clear security in 45 mins to catch the next flight. It was really tough for us. They could have handled the baggage little efficiently."
Pros: "Hi nice flight"
Cons: "Honestly nothing perfect Airline Definitely I will use the Emirate at airline again and again"
Cons: "server told person asking to take away her tray that she did not have three hands"
Pros: "Great staff at the airport and in the air! Best customer service!"
Cons: "Older plane with seats that needed help to return to upright position. Touch screen on tv didn't work when I touched with my finger."
Pros: "The plane was not full and I had three seats to myself, so my very positive review is not totally fair. However, on a relative basis in comparison to other airlines, Emirates is the best on which I have flown."
Pros: "The entertainment options are excellent and legspace on the aircraft is good."
Cons: "For a 14 hour flight there are no water bottles provided. You need more than the couple of cups of water provided on the flight, and it is not practical to keep on asking for more water from the crew. Quality of food (Asian veg) was not very good."
Pros: "Comfy seats with good legroom, huge entertainment selection, free alcoholic beverages!"
Cons: "My connecting flight (booked through Emirates but operated by JetBlue) was inexplicably cancelled with 24h notice. Emirates did a good job finding me an alternative flight but somehow did not get my bags on my new flight even though the woman at the counter made a special call to "ensure" that my bags would come with me. Now I have to wait over 24h before I can get my bag."
Cons: "I watched one movie, but the selection was pretty goo."
Cons: "The crew hardly paid attention to request. I had to ping multiple times and wait for really long time to get a glass of water. I tried to get to the back, the crew dint even move to help us with anything. They sat together and were talking and dint even care to move. I have never seen this amount of careless attitude so far in emirates. Food quality has gone down quite a bit compared to my travel before."
Pros: "A few of your flight crew were very nice and apologized for conditions. Free wine."
Cons: "Pissed poor equipment, awful food if that's what you call it, cramped environment. And the fact that on both out going and incoming flights I had things stolen from the over head compartments."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, 1 of my baggage was missed and due to that connecting flight from Boston to Newark was missed. There were no more flights to Newark so I was put up in flight to JFK after 3 hours of wait."
Pros: "Staff is very attentive and always around. I am not a fan of instant coffee, but I got a cup of coffee when I asked for one outside of "meal times". The leg room is good, though I could still use a little extra."
Cons: "I wish the crew asked all passengers to reset their seat upright when food is served. I am quite tall and having the person in front of me recline is uncomfortable at all times, but while eating, there just isn't very much elbow room. Also the temperature in the cabin is really too cold. The entertainment system uses a two-prong plug for the headset, which requires you to bring an adapter if you want to use your own noise-blocking headset or headphones."
Cons: "need more movies boarding started before the stated date, told me to go to 3 separate counters to change my seat and it didn't even end up working out"
Pros: "I love the fact that the crew is quite so international -- and that they all wear small flag pins to tell you where they come from! They were very good with the children -- and I loved the fact tht they came round and took polaroid photos of passengers - particularly the families!"
Pros: "The flight and accommodations were wonderful during the flight. The accommodations during the layover were nice at the Boston Courtyard Marriott. Pam & Keith Schroeder"
Cons: "We waited in Dubai 3 hours for connecting flights to arrive because of fog. When we arrived in Boston, they told us we had missed the connecting flight to Detroit by 20 minutes and could not fly back until 26 hours later. We were disappointed that the $50 dinner voucher would not allow us to each have 1 alcoholic beverage. (We should have read the fine print...)"
Pros: "Aircrafts are new and good"
Cons: "The ground staff needs to be more co-ordial and friendly. Am not sure how they are hired but they appear very rude and dry throwing instructions. I travel a lot and in many airlines and whatever the case, staff members of other airlines smile, tell issues if any, suggest solutions and work on it. Emirates staff, it seems, does not know how to talk or smile."
Cons: "Well Emirates left me 1 day in Boston and it wasn't my plan...Also Emirates front desk clerk tell my boyfriend he smell very hard to alcohol and maybe couldn't go in the flight and he didn't drink any alcohol."
Pros: "Crew was awesome trying to make me everyone that was in the same area with baby crying as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Baby cried for 8 hrs out of a 13hr flight it was horrible."
Cons: "There was a group of teenagers sitting in 8 seats in two of the middle rows right next to me. They spent the whole flight climbing all over the seats and each other. They were very loud, often banging into other passenger's seats, and leaving their stuff in the aisle where people were tripping over things as they walked by. They were really inconsiderate of other passengers - many of whom were trying to sleep on a 13-hour flight. It would have been nice if the crew would have told them to be quieter and more respectful of other passengers."
Cons: "Could not get comfortable and (while it doesn't reflect on the airline) all the screaming children I could have done without"
Cons: "Can you enforce the team NOT to throw the luggage to keep on the belt(s) as you guys don't have to."
Pros: "In flight crew were nice."
Cons: "Had requested for wheel chair assistance but was denied saying everyone was " too busy". When the passenger stated she cannot go without help, the flight attendant helped her out and to a bus. She almost fell while getting on to the bus. Assistance was requested because of her poor eye sight on the left eye and issues with mobility because of that. Although I'm glad nothing bad happened, denial of assistance and making her feel concerned and speak for herself for someone to help could have been avoided if Emirates could keep their promised support. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The hand luggage compartment of the aircraft makes terrifying noises during turbulence like it is going to drop on one's head during the flight. It should be fixed."
Cons: "I had an infant travelling with me and they gave a bassinet. When it was in use I was not able to use ICE on the flight because the way it was setup on my seat."
Cons: "Again the same indifferent attitude by cabin crew towards student gustes and particularly females. I was sick on the fligt despite informing crew no care was taken. I lost one of my check inn bag airline is indifferent. No help or compensation."
Pros: "Their wheel chair assistance was the best. They took care of my parents really well. Above all they were very welcoming and considerate towards their needs."
Pros: "Both flights were amazing the service in both were excellent including crews too"
Cons: "Both flights were amazing the service in both were excellent they also cared for our feet with the token of sock to Rest our feet from Dubai to Boston the crews hostess exclusive to work with clients good staff"
Cons: "We were not able to print the online checking ahead of time, so we had to stand in a lot of very long lines. The person printed the wrong boarding passes because they didn't know many details about domestic and international flights. There was also confusion about checking in the luggage between the domestic and international flights. A boarding pass from Dubai to Ahembadvad was not given at the New York airport."
Pros: "Crew very professional. Fare for flight very reasonable."
Cons: "Had 90 minutes fr connection, 30 min delay so 1 hr left. Had to walk walk and walk for nearly 1 hr to barely make it. Airport is TERRIBLE in terms of going from gate to gate- loong walks with no moving walkways. Train is a joke covering very short distance. Once arrived in Boston, took 1hr before luggage started unloading, and then to find out our 4 bags didn't come at all. Staff on ground not courteous, wouldn't send bags to home town in Raleigh. Had to wait till afternoon to get the bags and then fly to final destination. Entertainment system very bad, audio/video stop and go, stop and go- really terrible (though notice some people's screens were working fine)."
Pros: "Food and entertainment seemed a bit upscale."
Cons: "Young air hostesses with a bit of attitude. Wouldn't talk, just shake their heads in a weird way, to ask about what I wanted to drink or eat. None of my luggage made it."
Pros: "EXCELLENT QUICK SERVICE. CREW WERE FRIENDLY & ALWAYS SMILING. KEEP IT UP."
Pros: "on time and proice"
Cons: "food and seat"
Pros: "I like Emirates, and it was the first time that I flew Jet Blue. Jet Blue staff is friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Doesn't seem to me that Emirates and Jet Blue are aligned. JetBlue does not recognize what my status is with Emirates, the layover was long without a lounge, you can not select your seat on Jet Blue through Emirates (this is a huge irritation!), you can't check in online through Emirates for the Jet Blue return trip, and the seat selection for Jet Blue was awful."
Pros: "This airline is a dream."
Pros: "After a tiring 14 hr stop over in Dubai, I boarded my flight to Boston from Dubai at around 3 in the morning. I don't know when I fell asleep because I did not even wake up for the takeoff. The crew let me be and when I did wake up 5 hrs later they provided me with something to eat because I had missed the meal served earlier. The even closed my window shade as not to have the early morning sun disturb me. I call that great service."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "During COVID there was little attempt to distance passengers during security checks, boarding and onboard. Crew did not inforce mask policy. Fellow passengers were inconsiderate, loud, littered just throwing food wrappers and trash on the ground - crew did nothing."
Pros: "vegan sweeties for the kids, so nice as my daughter usually has to say no. Also swiss chocolate - so good! Our veggie meals booked hadn't gone through on the system but we were found some they had anyway - wasn't very nice though."
Pros: "My husband was on a business trip and his company booked him in business class. Economy was overbooked they cave me a free upgrade so I could sit with him!"
Cons: "Cost of extra bag. Also size limit for overhead carryon"
Cons: "The screens would freeze for all the people around. The connecting flight had 50 minutes, however there was another security check and gate was quite far, everything had to be done in a hassle and we were nervous throughout regarding missing the flight."
Pros: "The stewardesses were absolutely amazing, asking/ offering beverages in between main meals t/ out the whole flight! They were just doing their job above and beyond! Wonderful crew especially the girls in the section 30’s on the side FGJK, THANK YOU SO MUCH! YOU WERE AMAZING!"
Cons: "Swiss Air allowed us to book a flight with 45 minutes to connect. First flight came in a few mixtures late, but then we had to wait our long turn to deplane, get on bus and wait for it to fill up with all slower passengers, drive to terminal, make it through passport control, take train to other terminal, and run 20 gates down where they were looking for us. We made it with 1 minute to spare from takeoff. They knew our bags were connecting and they made it. If they could've expedited our passage with a club car it would have been excellent."
Cons: "Older plane with poor seat comfort. (Same trip Bos to Zurich much better.) Video did not work at all in one seat and poorly in other ,for 7 hr flight"
Cons: "Boarding was not clear! We were waiting for an announcement and none came. We got up when we saw the seating area clearing out. Earlt day International departures are sheer madness. The Check-in and security lines were crazy. Will take later flight next time."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Outdated aircraft. Too little seat space. Mediocre food. Mediocre entertainment. No device chargers.terrible policy of requiring passangers to buy seat reservations--beyond annoying."
Pros: "The service was friendly and efficient. My seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't working properly. It was restarted for me twice, but still didn't work."
Pros: "Best flight for a long time. great service and entertainment."
Cons: "I was unable to order vegetarian meal before the flight. This also a KAYAK / VAYAMA issue - you can not pass the info about special meal to the airline and Swiss seems to require that you order through them in order to specify such details. You should improve this."
Pros: "I treated myself to Swiss Business (for a second time) for this trip and it was terrific. From the comfortable seats, the fabulous dinner, the outstanding Swiss staff from the baggage check to the wonderful flight attendants, the flight to Zürich and the return trip to Boston was amazing! I cannot say enough good things about Swiss. I would love to be able to fly Swiss Business again when I travel to Zürich in September 2019."
Cons: "Too hot on plane, despite several requests to turn up air conditioning. Would be nice if pilot gave a few more updates as to why we sat on the tamac so long."
Cons: "We didn't even make this flight."
Pros: "Proper business service all the way."
Cons: "The seats did lay flat but were hard and uncomfortable in the down position. The breakfast barley was completely unappetizing."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "TV's did not work. Food was lousy."
Pros: "Friendly crew; good food"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Food was good. Good take off and landing."
Cons: "Seats. They were extremely too small and tight. Made very hard to move or try to sleep during the long flight. I think they definitely need to be wider. Hard to sit side by side with others. Had to keep my arms in front of me or I would be pushing the other person. I know all airlines are pretty much the same...but it shouldn’t be."
Pros: "The most difficult problem I have to deal with in airline transportation occurs when the fellow traveler in the seat in front of me decides to drop their seat back into my lap. The seats are so close together that when the seat in front of you is all the way back the following happens: 1. You can no longer view the monitor on the seat back. 2. You cannot eat or write from your tray top. 3. You have great difficulty getting out of your seat. 4. You have great difficulty keeping from severely injuring the occupant of that seat. The way to deal with this is to get out of your seat. Stand in front of the offending passenger and as politely as you can as him or her to refrain from dropping the seat back so far. But the airline should not put you in this situation."
Cons: "Ok, old plane."
Pros: "Staff, and service were good."
Cons: "We had to Run from our arrival gate to our departure gate, and take a train, and go through immigration and then a second documents check. It looked to me like Swiss Air knew we were running close as the flight rarely (if ever) leaves on time. It was stressful for us and for the 30+ others who were still in line in immigration when the flight time passed. It turned out to not be a problem but the published times are unrealistic. Seats were tight and comfort in cattle class is NON Existent sleep on an 8 hour flight was not even possible."
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS AWESOME BEFORE THE PLANE EVEN TOOK OFF!! My flights somehow got real messed up and everything down to my luggage had to be input manually. I wasn't sure if it was going to make it with me to the final destination. But it did! The head rest blew me away just as i sat. I love to know I can fall asleep and not have neck problems. And everything from the movies to the service to the food was great! My first international yet BEST experience in economy class was all worth it!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth; Attendants were nice and everything worked according to schedule"
Pros: "I was upgraded for some reason and holy cow was it awesome. Amazing food with more choices of what to eat. Massager in the chair and it nearly lied flat. So amazing and the perfect way to travel on a long flight"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, on time, excellent flight"
Cons: "Cramped, the touch screen was not very responsive, the snack at midnight would be better if it were breakfast food-"
Pros: "good entertainment system"
Cons: "not enough leg room"
Cons: "There was no wifi available, the airline did not have a record of my request for a vegan meal even though I submitted one when I booked my tickets, and they claimed I did not pay for/reserve a seat (even though I had for the flight over, which I booked at the same time as the return flight), so I was stuck in a cramped middle seat for 8 hours trying to write a paper without the internet."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, planes was very clean, the food was excellent and the staff was friendly."
Pros: "By far the worst experience I've ever had in my life. 1. A day after I perches a multi destination tickets I called Swiss air costumer service requesting to upgrade my tickets to business class. no one would even try to help me. They just kept saying I need to contact my travel agent. After 3 phone calls I gave up and decided to wait and upgrade my ticket at the airport. 2. In Prague the night before my second flight I hurt my knee real bad to a point that I couldn't walk at all. The next morning I call Swiss air costumer service again trying to explain them my situation telling them I can't fly and won't be able to make it to my flight. Costumer service cancelled immediately all of my remaining tickets and try to sell me new tickets for a full price. I said I don't mind buy and pay for the one flight I missed but there is no reason for her to re sell me the rest of my tickets that I already paid for, again. Then she start to change prices up and down like in a Chinese flea market. At that point I begged her to talk to a supervisor but she Kept ignoring my request and just try to negotiat for a lower charg she kept me on the phone for 5 hours. My hotel phone bill for that one call cost me 150€. I never got to talk to a supervisor but she took down the charge to 517$ Not included a new ticket flying out of Prague. 3. For my last flight going home. I showed up 2.5 hours Earlier. asking to upgrade my sit to business fin desk send me to talk to asupervisor. The supervisor was trying to process my request but didn't seem to know what he was doing at all. One minute he was on his computer then the next minute on the phone with Swiss air headquarter then back on his computer for more then 35 minutes with no resolute. I still had an hour and half before take off when he told me he can print me the ticket but it's to late now since the gate for my flight is close and I already missed my flight. I said that's impossible cause I still have an hour and half to my flight but he insist on the gate been close and there is no way I can get on that flight. Right away I run back to front desk asking them to print my ticket as fast as possible cause I would really like to get on that flight. In front desk they told me not to worry cause I got plenty of time to get on that flight. So I gave up on the business upgrade and told them that at that point I'll be just as happy to sit by the window. Of course they put me on the very end exactly in the middle. After the door was locked I looked around and saw plenty of free sits available including by the window. 4. In Zurich I finally managed to upgrade my last flight coming back to Tampa fl to business and noticed that the only way they could do that was by contacting Swiss air headquarter for approval. When I asked why is that since I fly a lot and never seen anything like that before one of the lady's there told how Swiss air left all of their front desk powerless and all decisions must be made by headquarters."
Cons: "When we finally arrived in Tampa. It hook them an hour and a half to get are bags out. I honestly doubt I'll ever fly Swiss airlines again. Ever. Absolutely the worst experience I've ever had flying. Ps the crew on the plain ware a lot nicer and more professional the people on the ground."
Pros: "The new aircraft"
Cons: "Lavatory wasn't clean enough"
Cons: "Everything was ok except that confusion we had while ticketing. Although we have been assigned on on carrier the flight was operated by a different one, which was not cleared in the purchase paper."
Pros: "I fly this line often, SWISS is immeasurably better than ElAl. The planes are modern and include an in-flight entertainment system, the food is light years better, the staff more considerate and attentive."
Pros: "food and crew were excellent: good meals, free wine."
Cons: "Screen was dim and low-resolution, controls slow and hard to use, no power outlets."
Pros: "Overall very pleased with the airline"
Cons: "The only complant I have is not enough leg room but the price was great so it was a compromise."
Pros: "I liked the comfort of the aircraft and entertainment"
Cons: "That there was a delay which wasnt announced which meant i had to get through an new airport in a hurry for me to get connecting dublin flight. When i got to boarding gate everyone was boarding found this extetemly pressuring"
Pros: "crew very friendly.food excellent- thai curry vegetables, snacks. the flight arrived ahead of schedule despite slight delay. I appreciated that this was Swiss operated so no charge for skis, boots and poles."
Cons: "Not sure why loading is not by aisles, seems not that efficient"
Pros: "the punctualty"
Cons: "little space betwwen the rows, bad food no entertainment and a very unfreindly crew"
Cons: "Food: not so good! Entertainment: in the section of the new releases movies was old not new:) And my bag didn't come on the and :("
Pros: "Flight was good and comfortable"
Pros: "Courteous staff,"
Cons: "Only one food choice, meatloaf + mashed potato. I don't care for meatloaf."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "The captain refused to turn on the AC until we were just about to leave. Many passengers were complaining. The crew refused to help or do anything. Then during the flight they kept the air flow down to a minimum so again it was boiling hot. DON'T FLY Swiss Air if you like normal temperatures!"
Cons: "At the check-in gate there was pandemonium. It was not clear how to proceed. The lines were long and disorderly. Since I had passed through passport control, I didn't think I would need to go through again just before boarding. I was in line, ready to have my boarding pass scanned when I was told I needed to have my passport checked! I had to step out of line, go back and get my passport checked, then go back in line to board! I could not get an assigned seat until I got to Zurich. I needed an aisle seat (I had a bladder infection and would need to use the toilet often). It was left up to me to negotiate with my neighbor to switch seats--- the crew would not help at all. I was cramped in my seat. The man in front of me put his chair too far back; I was difficult to work on my laptop with so little room between me and the table. The snack was horrible---uncooked, tasteless calzone and ice cream."
Pros: "The crew was terrific, the pilot provided us with lots of good information, and though the plane left late, it arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats are configured exactly opposite the human back. Clean, new, but very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Loved the food and wine. Very comfortable flight and the staff was wonderful"
Cons: "Through no fault of the airline, there was a strong thunderstorm that delayed our flight. Little information was provided about the situation. It was obvious that we could not fly in the storm, but we were not informed about the likely departure time. The reason I gave a poor ranking is that my suitcase/pack must have been left out in the downpour on the top of the pile so all of my clothes were extremely wet when I reached Boston. The bag itself was wet so it was not a case of something leaking in the bag. I have had to wash all of the clothes and iron them."
Pros: "The crew were great. They did the best they could given the circumstances. We got a compensation voucher because of all the trouble on the flight. That's something, though it's not super useful for the occasional traveler on SWISS (2000 miles and more bonus miles or CHF 50 travel voucher)."
Cons: "The plane arrived in Boston 50 minutes late, because we left Zurich late. That was because we were waiting on people to make a connection. Which was probably because their SWISS flight was late. Why are all SWISS flights running late??? There was no coffee or tea on the flight because there was a problem with the electrical system of the hot water machines. That could have been fixed before we left.... The entertainment system is clunky, and it didn't help that it had to be rebooted (took 20 minutes !?!?) in the middle of the flight to deal with some 'isssues'. The big boxes with the entertainment system underneath the seats are not fun either, they really cut into legroom. In general, it seems this plane is in need of a bit of an overhaul and maintenance. And whatever happened to Swiss punctuality? I'm not used to SWISS flights being late. You can do much better than that, you used to!"
Pros: "That I was able to get the front seat with the extra legroom at no extra charge. I also liked that the take off and landing were smooth. As was the flight in general. Also, the Swiss chocolate was good."
Cons: "The seats are so narrow and uncomfortable! The overnight flight from Boston to Zurich was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever experienced. There is no legroom. And the seats are incredibly narrow. When the person in front of me had their seat reclining I had even less room. Horrible. The only reason the flight from Zurich to Boston wasn't quite as bad was because I was able to get the seat by the exit aisle with extra legroom. The food was terrible. It didn't taste like real food. It looked and tasted totally artificial. Overall, a very poor experience."
Pros: "Overall good value for the price paid. The service is great and friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment system needs some improvement and upgrade."
Cons: "Several flights to US were leaving from the gates in the same wing of the terminal. A separate US passport control hurdle was set up there as an additional step prior to the boarding. The lines were long and barely moved when I joined about 40 min before my departure time. The security guy who handled the lines refused to let me through without waiting in the line. I was pretty stressed that I won't make it in time. Eventually it was all fine, people were picked up from the line by crew members of the flights that were about to leave. And when I eventually got throught, the flight did wait for about 15-20 min for the connecting passengers that were late. Having a clear communication at that US passport control line near the gate would make my flight connection and boarding process much less stressful."
Pros: "The service and patience"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Crew was excellent - friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats in economy too cramped - I paid extra for next seat up from basic economy which covered our baggage but, for some reason, not seats with more leg room."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The screen"
Pros: "The seating in upper class is unconventional and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Reconfigure seating in upper class. We will no longer be customers for that reason alone.."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. The meals are good, nice variety. Hot food is hot."
Cons: "Seats are not the most comfortable and sometimes the screen on the entertainment tv doesn't work that easily."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive...food selection was excellent"
Pros: "Crew was super helpful and kind. Pesto pasta was the best airplane food I’ve ever had in coach."
Pros: "Not crowded. Crew was good."
Cons: "Not taking a bus to board the plane."
Pros: "The crew were really nice and seemed to genuinely care about the passengers, were approachable and were very happy to chat with passengers and help them out."
Cons: "The food options always seem to run out by the back of the plane and this time didn't match the menu they gave me at the start of the flight, not that I minded because the option I was given was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Media screens are old and miscalibrated. Selection was decent. Food is probably average for the industry which to me is worse than fast food."
Pros: "The boarding was fast."
Cons: "For starters our cabin crew were the worst. The first service I had ask for a snack and no napkins. Dinner service was like just chucking food down in front of you. Then a stewardess looks me dead in the face and passed me for the drink service, then she said she thought I was asleep."
Cons: "Poor communication about the reasons for our 4 hour delay. Also, we purchased Economy X, which should have given us priority boarding, but we were told we had to stand in the general admission queue."
Pros: "Meals were excellent and plane was very clean. Economy delight is definitely an upgrade worth considering with extra leg room and space in front of you in general."
Cons: "Boarding can get crowded so don't be in a rush"
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Pros: "Top crew very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Business class food was bizarre for breakfast - a Mexican taco??? Asked for eggs from economy to be back later up"
Pros: "modern comfortable plane, in flight entertainment was good, service was outstanding."
Cons: "food was meh at best, seats in economy are tight and there is no legroom"
Pros: "Friendly staff, so much food/snacks were offered. Good movies available."
Cons: "luggage never made it to Boston? Don't know who's fault it was.Problem was corrected."
Cons: "Seatback TV is of the worst quality among airlines. They really need to upgrade those. They don’t nearly give enough beverage and water. The gate wasn’t announced till last minute. There was no group priorities when boarding. Process was chaotic. Food was meh. No internet."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and attentive"
Cons: "The entertainment system was not good. The touch screen was not calibrated and very hard to select and scroll through. The flight was over a hour late so we missed our connection. Got rebooked okay, but after traveling for 18 hours having to wait three extra hours was a drag."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."
Pros: "Service and food are good. Crew very friendly and tries to please everyone."
Cons: "Chair could be more comfortable compared to other seats who transform without turning over. Still - much much better than BA."
Pros: "Good Service. Great attitude of flight attendants..early arrival. smooth flight."
Cons: "despite purchasing 'extra legroom' seats, it was still very, very crowded and tight."
Cons: "We haven’t possiblyty to check in online. Crew smell was terrible, ladies used some perfume, some people was allergic to it"
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Flight was quite comfortable. Nice attention to service"
Cons: "I would have appreciated another round of hot drinks."
Pros: "Virgin atlantic is the best airline with Dreamliner"
Pros: "Food, crew, entertainment great"
Cons: "Seat were very uncomfortable.. hard, not enough leg room and there was no way to sleep comfortably with the head rest that is set up so you can rest your head on it,but its awkward and hard an in the way..."
Pros: "I felt that they were very thoughtful about the fact that it was a long flight. We got two small meals, which was perfect, and even a little gift bag with a sleep mask and toothbrush and such in it. These were just a couple of the many nice touches included in the flight."
Cons: "Very small quibble: the screen resolution, or maybe the contrast, of the personal video players was not so great. This was fine in most cases, but it meant I could not watch videos that had subtitles. Not a big deal but possibly worth fixing. Thanks"
Pros: "Did not take the flight in the end"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "The movie selections and comfortable headsets made it possible to watch three movies uninterrupted. The food selections were well prepared. Flight attendants were helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding is always a bit of chaos when our seats are right in the back. People further up insist on boarding early and block the aisles in the process. Multiple levels of passport control and baggage checkout are chaotic, but that's for most all flights coming into USA? VIrgin/Delta handled it well enough. By the time we got through passport control in Boston ur bags were waiting and we had no problems at all."
Pros: "I liked everything, which is very uncharacteristic :)) At least compared to the big American carriers or the national European ones, VA is a gen - esthetically for sure. Clean, comfy, stylish! Will be my choice from now on."
Pros: "Great seat. I did the upgrade and it was so comfortable ...good food."
Cons: "They closed the shades immediately when we took off. Creepy"
Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"
Pros: "I liked the food and refreshments and the on flight entertainment was good.."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding process.every other flight I've been on they board plane by rows.on this flight everyone was boarding at same time which was annoying and held up the boarding process.."
Pros: "The people at Check-in were fantastic - found out you have to check-in more than an hour before flight. They close an hour before to taking bags for international flights. Although right at an hour was late, they reopened for us."
Pros: "Wifi worked very well"
Cons: "Jave to pay for everything on an overseas flight"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "The whole flight was great quick boarding, lots of leg room, good entertainment, a USB charge port, good lighting, and the crew was very nice and helpful. I enjoyed the flight and would like to fly Virgin Atlantic more. Finally, you are the 3rd best flight, I have ever take, and the 2nd best airline I've been on. Flew Business Class on Swiss Air once to Geneva (#1) and all the flights I have had with Porter Air are comparable to your airline, but the free cookies and beverages at Porter's terminal in Toronto wonderful."
Cons: "A couple things went wrong on this trip, my checked luggage got misplaced for a day, and a nice women in baggage claim told me what was happening and a nice man handled my claim and my bag has now been returned to me. The bigger thing is my flight bas delayed taking off by 3 hours. Let me start that I would rather have a part replaced on the runway then not, safety is paramount. The fact is my flight took off 3 hours late from London (VS11), and got to my destination (BOS) 2.5 hours late. Kudos to the flight crew for getting me to my destination faster by gaining a little time. Plus, since BOSTON was my final destination it was all fine this time. But if I had had to get home to the elder person I take care of or my teenager it would been a problem. Again, I'm annoyed, but I do understand the reasons and they are valid and preferred. I have heard that airlines to keep their flight rating high, wait for planes to leave the gate on time and then do repairs on the tarmac. If this is still a SOP for airlines you should change the way the statistics are collected and figure out a way of not perpetuating this type of disincentive. This is just hypothesis on my part, and my whole trip had little negatives."
Pros: "Virgin gave everyone meal vouchers to use at the airport during the 5 hr. delay. Also, they still offered a meal on the plane."
Cons: "I couldn't get the inflight entertainment to work. I wish they would offer devices to borrow on the plane."
Pros: "Great cabin comfort and entertainment. Very nice place to be."
Cons: "Cabin crew less warm and professionally nice than Virgin. One point that needs addressing is that when the cabin crew or, even more so, the pilot came on the PA, the sound level was so much louder than that of the entertainment system. You had people jumping out of their seats and it was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Due to earlier late connecting flight into LAX, I assume, my bags didn't make it with me, and arrived two days late. But your man Fred from PNG Air was right there in POM Jackson's airport to take my information and somehow two days later I did receive the bags! Thanks! The flight itselfe was fine in every other way."
Cons: "Maybe when I checked in for the last two flights if your check-in agents could've told me more clearly about where in the system my bags were, it would've been less of a surprise to find out in POM that they were not with me. I did ask, but got answers like 'we'll try to transfer them' or 'your bags are in the system', which were not too informative, but maybe as complete as those workers could ascertain, I don't know. I would've liked to be able to check in on line in advance for this and other flights on this trip, if you ever decide to open up that facility (without a charge), it would be appreciated."
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Pros: "Major issue: No information in advance of problems associated with transfer at Heathrow that required going from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3-- requireing a lot of walking, stress, time and security checks."
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled at the time I was standing in front of the airline counter to check my bag. I was so furious. The airline did not help me at ALL. In fact, they offer me to buy a brand new ticket at a new price!!!!!! I ended up re-bought the ticket from United airline as my husband has United card (chase) and we ended up paying over 1900 for the ticket that should have been about $911. The priceline number is not helping. I have trip insurance but no. nothing worked. I will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Virgin always provides the best, friendliest, coolest service!"
Cons: "The food is pretty low quality, but I understand the logistics constraints of feeding many people in a small space without kitchen facilities! Also the wine choices are superior to other airlines and I look forward to that. I normally plan ahead and bring my own meals whenever traveling by air."
Pros: "Great service, comfortable and punctual"
Pros: "More leg room space in the economy space"
Cons: "I'm over 6 feet tall so the seat in the economy class I felt really uncomfortable."
"Excellent service from Boston to cairo and hurghada"
"The food was great"
Pros: "all perfect"
Cons: "all was perfect"
Cons: "At the Istanbul airport an item was taken from me for no reason. No regulation was shown for that item to be taken. I wasn’t comfortable with the way I was treated at the airport. The flight was very good"
Cons: "Flights are not on time with random cancellations."
Pros: "Plenty of films."
Cons: "Cabin was too hot."
Pros: "It was a great flight."
Cons: "The cabin temperature was a little warm"
Pros: "The cabin crews on Turkish work very hard. The food is well prepared ,"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "No entertainment. Late boarding."
Pros: "It was easy and convenient"
Cons: "The airline lost my bag, with contained all my clothes, shoes, jewelry, ps4 gaming concel, and all the games CDs I had , alongside the documents I needed to renew my Visa, which was such an inconvenience getting back, that I had to extend my ticket by a week which also cost me almost $400. Plus the airline staff was rude. That ruined my vacation."
Pros: "I have flown Turkish Air many times since 2010, and used to like the airline. Not so much anymore. I would say their entertainment center and food are pretty good."
Cons: "They used to have an affordable Economy Premium option, now all they have are seats made for someone 5’5” 150 pounds. Anyone over 6’ can and will suffer greatly. I’m 6’4” and fly many of their 12 hour flights from LAX to Istanbul and have to sit sideways, until my back aches so bad I have to turn. They also keep their planes unbearably hot, which I have no idea why, making the trip in that cramped seat horrible. Their in between meals snacks consist of cheese sandwiches, and the attendants never come around with drinks or snacks. I also fly Singapore Air and Emirates and their service is subperb!"
Cons: "The crew on board was aloof, and somewhat rude. I was traveling with my 87 yr old mother and they did little to help, especially when we needed the restroom but they had the aisle blocked for most of the time, serving food. There was no way to get around to access the bathroom and the crew turned us away from the only available bathroom in the front. Really?! Not impressed at all. Also the flt was 30 minutes late making our connection tight. One of the young, gorgeous stewardesses was rude and dismissive of me when I asked about it."
Pros: "Unlimited booze. Tons of movies. Classy airline"
Cons: "Departed over 1/2 hour late making it necessary to make a mad dash for the next gate for the following flight."
Cons: "Long lines and very slow"
Pros: "I thought the food was excellent on both flights light , fresh and tasty. The seats were very comfortable and the staff very helpful. I was very happy with Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Free meal and drinkd"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but we were not informed of what’s happening Too hot, air conditioning did not work"
Cons: "This’s the worse airlines that I ever use in my life, in my way back to Boston I get to the airport 2 and half hours before my flight, it was so crowded outside the door, so I didn’t get to check in till like an hour and 10 minutes, Guess what! They didn’t let me in because they close the gate they said?? They have me payed for another thicket to I take the next flight They are so weird, even when you called the customers service they will do nothing for you, like they don’t live in our planet!! Trust me stay away from this turkish airlines"
Pros: "Superb entertainment system"
Cons: "The flight back from Dublin to Istanbul was awful, it was crowded, very warm, no air to breath."
Pros: "The actually flight was great- food and crew were very good and professional."
Cons: "Turkish airlines in Istanbul this last trip was the most disorganized and rudest I've yet to experience. They were incredibly disorganized and unhelpful. It was 5am with hoards of people waiting just to go through a tiny security because they closed the entrance for international transfers. No lines and direction whatsoever. It took two hours just to go through simple sercurity. My flight gate, number, and info to Boston was not even posted on the departure screen so I almost missed my flight- I had to go multiple times across the airport to find anyone to ask. The employees were rude and unhelpful. They did not assist or direct anyone or any of the chaos and they were slow and lacked any understanding to people whose flight was ten minutes till take off. Really unimpressed and highly considering avoiding taking them again to the Middle East in the future."
Pros: "Comfortable seat. Food acceptable."
Cons: "Computers were down for more than 2 hours. I have a disability and I was told to seat and someone would come with a wheelchair when the problem would be solved. They completely forgot about me. When I saw that the people had boarded, I went to the counter asking for the wheelchair. They sent me to Egypt Air to request it. Of course Egypt Air said I was not their passenger, so I should request the chair to my airline. I tell the man from Egypt air to talk directly to his colleagues in Turkish Airways. He is angry and tells me he's doing me the favor of getting the chair even if it's not his job, so i should be very thankful. He requested the chair and sat me on it. Kept telling me I should be thankful to him, even if it wasn't his job. Turkish Airways never got the wheelchair for me and I have mobility problem but they tell me to get to another airline to get it! No entertainment originally in Spanish in any flights for Spanish speaking passengers."
Pros: "Short flight-everything fine. Great plane."
Cons: "Having to pay for internet if you want to use it. The way Israelis queue at the airport, leaving no room between you and them...too much pressure. Strange 'breakfast"."
Pros: "I was upgraded to buisnes class :)"
Cons: "Every thing was ok"
Pros: "Awesome service, comfy business cabin!"
Cons: "Boarding in Istanbul and Tel Aviv was chaotic, no business class boarding. Checking laptop in Istanbul was inconvenient. Lounge Istanbul was awesome however way too crowded to fully take advantage of it. Also should control people and what they takfor food. The lines were long and people would literally pile their plates with massive amounts of food, take it to their seat then leave it. Fix the lockers and add more, they are a wonderful asset but I was not able to take advantage of. Consider limiting access to manage crowds."
Pros: "The tv because I got to watch a couple of movies"
Cons: "The crew did not know what they were doing. My grandmother needed a wheel chair and the lady who took her did not allow any of us to stay with her , mind you my grandmother can't speak English. The lady also told us that she didn't need the passport or her boarding pass ??? Because of that my grandmother almost got lost , we had to wait for her for an eternity. She got very scared and very upset for what you guys did . She is an old lady and it was one of her worst experiences of her life"
Pros: "Great : food. Entertainment , service . Check in, laguage accommodation."
Cons: "In All my flights with them it is Sssoooo hot!!! They save on A/C??? I asked to cool the cabine - they did for 15 min and back to heat again . Managing seat assignment is impossible if you book through a website other than theirs . They don't have an "economy comfort " option"
Pros: "We liked being in Exit row and the food and service"
Cons: "On way over BOS-->IST the seats were the closest together I have ever had. Exit row video screen support arm did not hold in place"
Pros: "The crew in the flight is amazing! Very attentive"
Cons: "The Tel Aviv airport check in is a nightmare!! We were there 3 hours ahead of our flight and the line would not move. Finally made it to the front 20 min before our flight!!! The people in the check in bags did not care if we missed our flight, was very rude and sloooooowwww!!! I have been to many airports and this is by far the worst! I had to run to my gate and ran into another check where they let me pass bc my flight was about to close! Made it 2 minutes before the bus left! Nightmare!!!"
Pros: "Exceptionally nice crew, outstanding amenities, best food I've ever had on an airplane. I especially liked having the option of traditional Turkish fare."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been more organized. I had a business class ticket and could not find the priority boarding line. The first ground crew member I asked was abrupt and sent me to the back of the long line. I caught the attention of a different crew member and he motioned me to the front of the line--it was a little awkward saying "excuse me" to each person that I passed. (I am not used to being a priority passenger!) Once my documents were cleared and my carry-on was inspected at the gate, it was not clear whether to take a seat or to go somewhere else."
Pros: "Crew was nice and courteous."
Cons: "I'm 2.05m tall, and had no leg room or an exit seat. These seats should be saved for these specific occassions, which made the flight uncomfortable."
Pros: "LOVED the attention that was given to passengers that wanted/needed rest."
Cons: "Looked into purchasing 1st class because flight was 10hrs & it was insanely expensive. The poor peoples cusions need some up dating, they are uncomfortable & worn."
Pros: "Crew was top notch , food was great, loved the hot towels you get to freshen ourselves with, crew friendly and very patient. Loved that flight wasn't full and the three of us could spread out and be as comfy as possible."
Cons: "Very late 1.5 hours leaving JFK on way to Istanbul causing us to miss our connecting flight to Tel Aviv. Arriving almost 2.5 later in the evening."
Pros: "The lost my 1 checked bag of luggage somewhere between tel aviv-istanbul-frankfurt!! Filed a report at Frankfurt Airport but it was filled with all my essentials and some valuables and the airport staff didnt seem to concerned in helping me.... To clarify, my experience through Kayak has been fine! However this whole ordeal has left a very sour taste in my mouth...i still dont have my luggage. They couldnt track it l yet....maybe you can help or forward this message to the appropriate authority. It is extremely important to me :/ Thanks, I still like kayak :) -addam rhodes"
Cons: "See literally everything above"
Pros: "Things that I liked I expected - we take it for granted: crew must be polite, boarding - efficient, leg room is normal."
Cons: "Even in business class leg room is not ample, aircraft seems to be quite old, inside is well scoffed and scratched, my foot rest couldn't be raised or extended, no personal ventilation, temperature is interchangeably too hot or too cold, movie choice is far from awesome"
Cons: "I flew from Tel Aviv and upon arrival went through security so I could proceed to my departure gate. Then at the departure gate a whole new round of security. There was a priority line, but for some reason I didn't get in it, although I fly business. The line was not that long but it just did not move. And the a/c was not working. Worst boarding experience ever and I've been flying for over 40 years. When I boarded finally I asked if I could give a review and although they said yes- nothing. So I hope someone who cares sees this."
Cons: "I was shocked when we landed in Ataturk and the sleeve was attached to the plane we had to get down to the ground from the middle of the sleeve. We were taken to the terminal by bus!! After the sleeve was already attached! I can understand when you are in some small airport or flying with low cost airline. But it's Turkish airlines in their home airport! Really disappointed."
Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Pros: "Add good airline to Atlanta to eu"
Pros: "Flight delayed 11.5 hours...not their fault, but there was no communication from Turkish Airlines as to what was happening."
Pros: "Service Good Clean On time"
Cons: "Price is high"
Pros: "Crew was very nice though took very long to clear after meal. I love flying with Turkish Airlines on my business trips I guess August is not the best time .."
Cons: "Flight was very full yet boarding was done with bus not a walk trough gate Screaming children and loud parents made the short fligh literally a nightmare. This is not in the airline control unfortunately yet impacted badly on my flight experience."
Cons: "There wasa cue 100 m before the gate at Istanbul Airport. The cue became a crowd ahead 4 gates, everybody nervous, pushing, no order, late for boarding, no information. Never seen such nervous crowd."
Cons: "I asked for sugar 3x before finally getting it (1 hour), but by then the coffee was cold and I had to request a new one and wait another 10 mins :)"
Pros: "came home with 2 broken bags, hard to talk to anybody, emailing back and forth since then to replace them, so far offered much cheaper bags and om top of this, a lot of paper work needed to claim those 2 cheaper replacement !!!"
Cons: "very tight seats for 12+ hours across Atlantic flight, old planes, somewhat unfriendly attendants."
Pros: "Food Entertainment Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Crew should be more responsove to issues it took them 1h to solve my issue!!!"
Pros: "I didn't eat the food because I have dietary restrictions but it looked decent."
Pros: "I am not a picky person to me every thing was great taking into consideration that you cant satisfy every one."
Cons: "Not every one can follow the speed of the way you announce things, remember your flight take people from different continents in the world Also not having some where to sit while waiting for the information of which gate to go it is very challenging. The AC was almost killing the older people not me but the older lady sat next to me complained all the time but it didn't work. I know it is the challenge difficult to solve however you can give them some advise. Find a private space to talk with sick people because some people might not be comfortable to talk in front of every one."
Pros: "Good food, comfortable seat."
Cons: "Our bag arrived without the walking poles attached to it. So far (more than a week after the flight) we haven't heard from Turkish Airlines anything about our complaint regarding this loss of baggage."
Pros: "Crew and food were quite good"
Cons: "Leg room was quite tight on plane the carry on bag limit was too restrictive at 8kg"
Cons: "Your crew didn't smile. They didn't seem very happy. The food was ok, but different from normal American cuisine. I didn't appreciate the crew's comments to some of my fellow passengers about how they we wouldn't eat the food. I would have liked to have been offered more to drink. Additionally I'm glad the crew is fond of one another, but they were loud and distracting. They were nicer to one another than the people flying. I didn't like being barked at and being given confusing directions regarding exiting the plane. Overall I wasn't impressed and would prefer to not fly with your airline again."
Pros: "Food was not available for flight."
Pros: "TV series “The Name of the Rose” that I really wanted to watch for some time"
Cons: "Water, water, water... I almost died from dehydration"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, no air controller and the TV screen with the flight information was right in front of us. Even the flight attendants couldn’t turn it off and it was so bright making it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Movies and bathrooms"
Cons: "1. UNABLE TO CHOOSE SEATS. 2.Unaware that ticket did not include baggage fee 3.Most uncomfortable seats in 50 years of flying Will not use Momondo again unless I can choose seats and be made aware of ACTUAL COST OF FLIGHT."
Cons: "Drops coming down from the Air condition system"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Very friendly and attentive. In flight entertainment and food were very good."
Cons: "Seats felt a bit cramped. WiFi didn't work."
Pros: "There were so many refreshments and meals for just a 6.5 hour flight. The movie selection was great."
Cons: "Some of the attendants could have been friendlier, but overall they were very available and helpful."
Pros: "Great service. Lovely crew."
Cons: "Legroom was pretty tight, and im short."
Pros: "The flight on time. Good crew. Good service."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seat"
Cons: "The flights was considerably delayed, due to Lufthansa's operation issues. Information provided at the terminal was nearly non existent and the posted information on the extent of the delay was inaccurate and not updated. All in all, not effective and non communicative handling."
Cons: "The plane was too warm. It was a full flight and you need more air circulation. The movies were old and you need more current ones. For a snack we were offered a cookie or some sort of sandwich, there were chocolates and fruit on the tray but they weren’t offered."
Cons: "Seats were inordinately small Make sure to check the size of the seats on the flight you are considering before booking."
Cons: "We had 30 minutes delay"
Pros: "The staff was professional and friendly"
Cons: "The seats were too close to the row in front of them. I've taken 12 flights from the USA to Europe since 1990 and the two I've taken on Lufthansa this month were horrible! Airplane food is always bad...who cares. But being trapped in uncomfortable seats with no room to shift your position for a six plus hour flight is inhumane! My son is 6'2" and his knees were literally against the back of the chair in front of him, luckily my daughter was in that seat so she didn't recline it on his knees. My back was killing me in the first hour (I'm only 5'2") my 13 year old daughter complained that her back was killing her by the end of the flight. I've never flown Lufthansa before and will never again!"
Pros: "Everything was excellent, there was no entertainment but wasn't needed because it was a short flight"
Cons: "We got there 15 minutes late, which isn't that bad but I had a connection flight and it was very pressed to get to it"
Pros: "The service. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Crew was excellent and many passengers were as well. Really commend cabin crew for their excellent work on a full flight."
Cons: "A bit cramped and I really didn't like the people in front of me who reclined in coach. The cabin crew got them to put up their seats for the food service, but otherwise there was nothing they could do. Can't we just tell people that coach doesn't have the room to recline. Also, you guys are German, can't we at least board by rows?"
Pros: "Good variety of on-board entertainment"
Cons: "We were in last row of our section of the plane and space was very cramped, especially for my 6'1" husband. It was not a very physically comfortable flight."
Pros: "Professional, friendly crew. Clean plane. 1/2 hour early arrival"
Cons: "NO legroom. Like, none. Seat in front of me hadn’t mechanicals underneath, so no footroom. Passenger put seat back, and I couldn’t use my tray table. Crew call buttons on the arm, so by merely putting your elbow down, you risked calling the crew ( I did it twice). Then my TV broke. Not a terrific experience overall"
Cons: "When I picked up my luggage one piece had a broken zipper and my belongings fell out"
Pros: "crew is nice"
Cons: "breakfast was pretty lame !"
Pros: "Punctuality, the entertainment system"
Cons: "For the first time in decades (hundreds of flights), I've had to find the paper bag and until the very end I thought I might end up needing it. My companion did use hers, and mine (also a first in many decades). Part of the bumpiness could have been due to a weather system but the plane's movement was jerky when taxiing in Boston. BOS-MUC used to be one of my favorite routes back when it was served by the A360. The new A350 is nothing special except for the entertainment system. Ironically the large screen seemed overwhelming due to the dismal distance to the seat in front."
Cons: "We were in the middle at the very back of the plane. It was quite bouncy for some time during the flight. The stewardess informed us that that was typical for seats at the back of the plane. It is not easy to choose your seats when you buy the ticket online, but I would prefer a calmer location. Also I was squeezed when the person in front of me leaned back in her seat. Service was excellent, however."
Pros: "The entertainment system included ability to access cameras on the tail and belly of aircraft which was interesting to watch takeoff and landing. Crew was great, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Seat cushions lacked deep cushions, seats were too close together, could not stand up. Boarding was not done by rows, so took longer than usual."
Pros: "For a direct flight between the N.E. and Frankfurt, it is one of the best."
Cons: "As with all flights, I wish there was more room. It is tough for a 6 ft 2 inch person. I can't imagine being taller or heavier than I am and what it must be like."
Pros: "There was a problem with baggage self checkin and it was hard to tell what to do"
Pros: "i received an unexpected upgrade which worked out very well."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled , for tecnical reason, we got very late flight instead- 12 hours delayed. We didn't get compensated for tall the in convenience"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delay for 45 minutes; unfortunately, it's becoming a trend at Lufthansa"
Pros: "Faster, newer planes."
Cons: "Flights were late and boarding was caios, no one had any clue what to do. Blankets were filthy. Entertainment had limited choice. Considering I took six flights in this month, I will let it slide that they ran out of New movies. Worst part was food. Obviously, there is no quality consideration when they decide menu. Check Emirates or other similar fare bracket airlines to understand the gravity of Lufthansa food problem. If one reason I had to choose to drop Lufthansa from my future consideration then that would be worst food and drinks. I would strongly recommend that they should assign people who need additional time to board at the back of the plane. It will help them to go back of the plane faster and avoid gridlock in the middle. Another advantage is it will help other passengers leave plane faster at the end of the ride. Boarding process will be come significantly faster by filling the plane from back to front by loading passanger with children and who needs time at the first loading area at the back of the plane. Thanks"
Pros: "The 747 is a big plane. Each seat had a full entertainment system in the back of the seat ahead. Seats actually reclined! Cannot recommend cabin crew highly enough. Efficient, polite, professional."
Cons: "I cannot understand why any airline continues to board forward to aft, forcing people with just a backpack to stack up behind others, allowed to bring obscenely over-sized carry-on bags, wrestling to get their sea chests into the overhead bins. Seat upholstery could have been better for such a long flight. I have "asnahtfuL" permanently embossed on my butt. 747 is an aging craft and this plane had disappointing response to turbulence."
Pros: "I like everything about your operation. my experience with you was far better to what i experienced fly another airline last time i visited United States. thank you."
Cons: "Many of us were on board half an hour before the scheduled departure. However, they continued to board until at least half an hour past our scheduled departure, family by family. I don't believe such an early morning flight, which should be the origination flight, should be held/delayed so long...it made my connection in Frankfurt very tight and others missed theirs altogether."
Pros: "Brand new Airbus 350 on the first transatlantic flight for Lufthansa was very nice"
Pros: "I like to fly LH on the BOS to FRA route as they are the only carrier to fly this route nonstop. Usually the service is quite good. The crew is attentive, offers water or juice repeatedly, gives you a warm moist handcloth before the mealservice to clean your hands. Check-in in FRa can be tedious becaiuse of long lines."
Cons: "LH experienced several strikes in the last two years or so. Once I had to stay an extra day, this time I had to cut a family visit a day short. While they handled the rebooking in both cases quite efficiently, not everyone might have the flexibility to change days so easily. It is also disappointing when one has to give up on a planned activity to make it back home on time. Movie selection could be updated and I miss having an actual newspaper or magazine to read on the long flight. Will have to pack my own oin the future."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable; departure and arrival were timely."
Cons: "After priority passengers boarded the aircraft, boarding for everyone else was a free for all. It would be more orderly if there were clear lines and groupings of rows beginning at the rear were called. Movie selection was not great. Many choices were old. Few were current."
Pros: "The food was terrible. Your seat space is exceptionally small. I am small but others of greater stature cannot really fit and then they encroach into my space. Makes for an uncomfortably long journey. Your attendants were most attentive."
Cons: "The food, food, food."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and narrow seats. Pathetically sized leg rooms. ...And I am not a big person. Lufthansa has been my favorite airline for years but I am sad to see that with every new plane they get, the seats and leg rooms get smaller and smaller, ignoring the fact that 4 people have to sit there for 8 hours, elbows and legs touching with no wiggle room. Will not take Boeing 747-400 again."
Cons: "Checking in in Tel Aviv was the worst experience I have had in checking in. The ladies just sat there, explained almost nothing, gave no eye contact. Finally, they told me the flight was overbooked and that was why I was waiitng. They offered nothing else--as if I had done something wrong (the impression they gave me), rather than Lufthansa. I waited a full 1 1/2 hours. No other explanation. At the very end, when they finally put me on a flight, they chastised me for not checking in online---this was NEVER offered to me by Lufthansa on my flight there or on the return. With other airlines they always send me an email to check in online ahead of time. Lufthansa did not. I could not have been more disappointed with this checking in experience with Lufthansa. Again, the worst in my life and would be cause for me not to recommend Lufthansa to others. Otherwise, the flight itself and the actual crew were great. So disappointing to have such an unprofessional check in experience."
Pros: "Food, movie selection, comfort, speed of flight much better than Air Canada on the way over. Didn't lose any luggage."
Cons: "Had a little trouble getting everything set with the luggage and boarding pass. One lady wasn't very helpful but a male employee came along and straightened everything out."
Pros: "I always try to fly LH, but do so only if there is a deal available. This time I was especially impressed with the ground crew service in Frankfurt who offered assistance that I would have been too self-conscious to solicit, and it made all the difference."
Pros: "Tremendous selection of movie entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit confusing"
Cons: "Patronizing crew."
Pros: "only negative was whining child whose parents did not seem to care if whole plane was disrupted. Had tv available so watched olympics most of way home. Also, beer or wine with dinner"
Pros: "we had to cut our trip short and book an immediate flight home on Lufthansa. The staff took excellent care of us. Even offered us some orange juice and milk to take home knowing that we may need it (being away for a while) and knowing that our first priority was to get to a hospital. These little events shows the extreme compassion from Lufthansa's on-board staff. We will now ALWAYS look to fly Lufthansa whenever possible."
Cons: "Flight attendants served too many drinks (hard liquor) to the passenger sitting in front of me, and continued serving him even after he was visibly drunk. When preparing for landing, one attendant gave an annoyed answer when I asked him to remind the same passenger to set his seatback in vertical position."
Cons: "I didn't like that I bought a bottle of perfume and they let me take it from Israel to Germany without a problem, and as soon as I got to Germany they trashed it saying that it should've been in a sealed bag, so 80$ went to trash or God knows where,,"
Pros: "super comfortable seats, good movie selection and smooth interface with the personal video screen/music/tv etc., also surprisingly good food."
Cons: "sound on the entertainment system broke halfway through the flight (just my seat)."
Pros: "Staff was exceptionally friendly and efficient. Aircraft was pleasant and clean. Seats are a bit uncomfortable in that they seemed to lack cushion comfort but space was OK for economy class. I will highly recommend your airline to others. Thank you!"
Cons: "Food quality was not good."
