Pros: "Food was not available for flight."
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Many delays boarding plane. No entertainment at all on a flight longer than 3 hours is insane. Flight crew are great, though."

Cons: "This is the last time I perches a flight ticket from you."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Drops coming down from the Air condition system"

Pros: "Good. Thank you."

Pros: "Half empty plane"
Cons: "Food n movies"

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: "Another snack midflight."

Cons: "All great"

Cons: "Big and unjustified dekay"

Pros: "Really friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment, worst food I've ever had at an airline"

Cons: "I missed the flight to Manchester due to delay in the flight to Munich"

Cons: "We had 30 minutes delay"

Cons: "i ordered 1 kosher meal and the flight attendant said they gave out all special meals and ours was not on the list"

Pros: "Height Space, good pilot and some of the food. Good landing and overall pilot skill."
Cons: "For the whole journey I had a small child kicking, knocking, tapping behind me. Kept waking me up also nearly ten hours of whining. I was genuinely uneasy and uncomfortable for the whole trip. I think there should be a designated child with adult area as I really don’t think this is acceptable. It is stressful enough traveling for 30+ hours this really is not welcome."

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: "Great crew. Ontime. Great online check in process."
Cons: "When we got off the plane in Frankfurt, they put us in shuttle buses to take us to the terminal. My wife and I got separated and were on different buses. The two buses took us to different terminals, despite airport staff assuring us that there was only one drop-off point for the shuttles. If there was a sign saying which terminal the shuttle was going to, it was not clear."

Cons: "Cramped seating :-0"

Cons: "Flew in business class so baggage should have had priority tag on it. Bag is lost and they have no idea where it is. Ruined an otherwise wonderful trip."

Cons: "When I picked up my luggage one piece had a broken zipper and my belongings fell out"

Pros: "Great pilots and crew."
Cons: "Flight out was delayed by four and a half hours, missed connection was a pain. Was not aware that Lufthansa changed their policy. To reserve seats you have to pay hundreds of dollars, which was not made clear while booking. Further the quality of their food was significantly degraded."

Pros: "crew is nice"
Cons: "breakfast was pretty lame !"

Cons: "Where is my bag"

Cons: "* The gate was with bus, and not a direct terminal connection * There were no drawing sets for kids * The food was either overheated or somehow impacted - didn't look proper"

Pros: "Very good care ofrom the staf Not cold"
Cons: "The breakfest was terible. Not tacty a t all. No entertainment. We took 2 difernt meals and both bad"

Pros: "Accurate. Friendly."
Cons: "My suitcase weal broke during the flight!!"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful, attentive, and friendly."
Cons: "The vegetarian (Lacto-Ovo) meal options were terrible, and the seats were fine, but not amazing."

Pros: "A lot of drinks"
Cons: "One hour in late"

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "The crew were very helpful, and the food was quite good."
Cons: "This was an old plane. There were no video screens or wifi. Legroom was minimal."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "No TV"

Pros: "The aircraft, an A320 was stable but cramped and entertainment depended on prior download of the Lufthansa app. Crew was very efficient and professional."
Cons: "Cramped. Seat did not recline AT ALL and very hard. No entertainment unless you downloaded the app beforehand."

Pros: "Friendly. And efficirnt crew"

Cons: "I didn't got the seats i asked for in the check in."

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. No entertainment, even though there is an app for it, it did not work, and the crew had no idea regarding it."

Pros: "1. I am gold status and I had to wait a lot of time in the line people without gold membership who came 30 minute after me finished checkin before me. 2. The plan didn't have any Entertainment system. 3. I didn't got my food as well."

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."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5 hrs and then completely canceled. They never gave us a reason as to why it as canceled and when they canceled it, they directed the entire group of the people on the plane to 4 different gates before getting a gate agent to tell us that we had to leave the gate and go back to the ticket counter and start over again. The security in Israel is very intense, so this was a big hassle. Then they only had 3-4 gate agents to rebook all 300+ people on the flight so we waited in like for 3 hours."

Pros: "I flew economy class both ways across the Atlantic in Feb and March, 2017. I took 6 Lufthansa flights. The crew is so professional and attentive. They don't skimp on drinks! The seats seem bigger...or maybe it is more leg room than some other airlines. I did not upgrade and was very comfortable."
Cons: "Well, the flight from Frankfurt to Tel Aviv both ways and there were only 2 bathrooms for a pretty big flight."

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: "Everything about the service staff the plane amazing"

Pros: "Crew onboard was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "No legroom in coach. The person in front of me was sitting in my lap. They are the only airline that weighs your handbag, the luggage you take onboard. E en of it fits the size requirements they weigh it and make you confirm. They don't care if your checked luggage is underweight but your hand luggage is overweight and both add up to less than what you're allowed overall. Makes no sense and is such a useless hassle."

Cons: "seats are way too close to each other."

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,,"

Cons: "It was late, we had connection to Berlin and we were in a hurry And forgot things on the plain. They didn't make arrangements to help us be on time for our connection. We had to run. My name is Dan Chevion. Can we get back the items we forgot on the plain?"

Cons: "terrible flight bad food, the options were finished by the time they reached line 30. the entertainment had 3 old movies in English. wishing the flight will finish because it was very jumpy, after all this it ended in an emergency landing. Lufthansa was very disappointing."

Cons: "They allow you to pull out your own laptop and access their wifi and entertainment content but provide no outlets to charge your device to do so"

Cons: "My wifi was not working for the entire trip!"

Pros: "You got me there without problems. Even the baggage got transferred. Better if seats declined more. I would pay an extra 40 to have a more seat recline."

Pros: "the over seas flight was fine... once we got on board"
Cons: "The desk does not open until two hours before your flight. Our flight was canceled, 10 minuets before boarding .... with no recourse we were booked on the next day. It took the airline 3 hours after the cancelation to get out luggage back. When we finally got out, the next day, our flight was delayed and we almost missed our connection. Every one who was trying to make the same connection said that every time they fly Air Canada they are always running. We needed up being the last ones on the plane.... they gave away our seats so we were separated for 12 hours. And shoved into corners!!! Our bags made it two days late."

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Everything was amazing"

Pros: "Everything went well, the crew was great."

Pros: "The crew ensured that all my needs were met while on the flight. Truly a pleasurable experience."
Cons: "Nothing... Can't exactly shorten the distance."

Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."

Pros: "I would choose this route again--I liked the timing of the flight and transferring in Toronto."
Cons: "The kosher food was abysmal which may not have been Air Canada's fault. When a seating problem arose with an ultra orthodox man who refused to be seated next to me (a woman) the flight attendant told me, "I don't deal with that." Finally another flight attendant found the man a seat between two men."

Cons: "Food was not good. Just filling. Crew was not polite when I asked for more water"

Pros: "Nice crew and service, I ate all the food :) lots of new movies !"
Cons: "I guess it is a good thing for the airline because the plane was full, although it was crowded to me."

Cons: "Not enough leg room Cramped seating area in coach"

Pros: "Crew we're very accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Seats extremely narrow and back support non-existent."

Pros: "Good meals and services with beverages"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "nice food great crew"
Cons: "the washrooms need more cleaning during this long flight messy boarding"

Pros: "Really liked I have space for my legs."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "The Air Canada counter officer do not help me at all. She only told me to call Air Canada which I can not since the Shanghai office is close and the US number did not work. I ended up bought a new ticket with AA."

Pros: "Good legroom and entertainment options, on time. Enjoyable overall."
Cons: "Food showed British heritage -- stodgy, boring, overcooked. The bathrooms were dirty and out of supplies after a while."

Pros: "Service on the plane was good"
Cons: "Boarding took forever and the plane took off an hour late due to boarding inefficiencies)"

Pros: "You fly a beautiful plane, the Boeing 787. Excellent entertainment, more comfortable seats, and just about everything on this plain was upgraded. It is a case study of how to do things right. The most impactful for me was air humidity. It was refreshing to fly and not feel like I've been in the Sahara desert at high noon. So, your starting point is really high, but you really need to look at your service."
Cons: "our flight was 40 minutes late in departing TLV. My connection in Toronto then was changed to a later flight, which was then delayed too by 50 minutes. all in all a 14 hour flight with connection ended up being close to 18 hours. My biggest two complaints about the flight itself is the food & the toilets. Your meals are the worst I've had in a major airline, and you should not serve customer frozen of close to frozen bread or sandwiches. If you are serving rolls, sandwiches or pitas, or bagels heat them up first. El-Al has been doing it for decades, go look at how they do it. But besides the bread/sandwiches issue, your meals are a really bad version of frozen supermarket meals. Just terrible all round. The other complaint is the bathroom. It was not cleaned frequently enough."

Pros: "Tel Aviv security is confusing and time consuming but Air Canada helps you make it through. Flight is on a comfortable new airplane with gray movie selection. Two full meals and a snack provided."

Cons: "Everything Luggage no come on time This is the worst company"

Pros: "Crew were friendly and not bossy. Plane was not crowded. Pilot made up most of our lost time (see other box). Ground crew were friendly and efficient in Toronto, getting to me to my departure gate in time. I was pleased to be offered a food voucher."
Cons: "Departure delay of 3 hours from Tel Aviv. Unruly Haredim should be left on the ground in Toronto, not in London. Food voucher was usable at only one outlet, and Burger Ranch is a greasy spoon. Would more choice be too difficult to organize?"

Pros: "Very accommodating with my seating requests; very kind staff and nice new plane"
Cons: "Got delayed in toronto for 24 hrs and there was a lot of waiting and disorganization"

Pros: "Food good Choice of movies pretty good"
Cons: "Suitcase damaged No one in Detroit to process claim Amount of wine offered was somewhat meager for such a long flight"

Cons: "AIr Canada lost my luggage and the return flight was late"

Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Cons: "my language has been lost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "My flight to Toronto arrived late which meant there would be no way for me to catch my connecting flight to North Carolina. An Airline rep was already waiting for me out of the terminal, with tickets for a new flight the next morning, a ticket for one night at one of the airport hotels(dinner included) and meal vouchers for the airport. This would have never happened with any US based airline."

Pros: "Fantastic service. I will use Air Canada again."
Cons: "The delay was unforeseen but acceptable."

Pros: "The service was very good and the flight felt safe and smooth."
Cons: "Very crowded plane with very little legroom (and I am 1.65m). The food could be improved. Entertainment was decent, but the design of the controls embedded in the armrest caused my neighbor to disrupt my programming often. It was inadvertent, but still annoying."

Cons: "There was no information for the new rules of eTA and I've lost my flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto to my friends baby's baptism. Shame!"

Cons: "Not on time. I missed my connecting flight"

Cons: "The flight was delayed about an hour and a half, only after some time at the gate they explained it on the mic.I had a connection flight, and before landing they mentioned there will be agents helping those with upcoming connections to catch them up due to the delay, but those people just pointed me in the general direction of the gates. I had to ran all over the airport, confused after the terrible long flight, and since it was my first time there. I made it at the last second, they changed my seat without my permission and didn't have enough room for my bag so I had to check it. The general attitude of the crew was reluctant at best.The food was mediocre, like what you would have gotten in a flight 10 years ago, and they gave beef to people who asked for chicken. I wanted to be more cool about it, but it was a terrible flight in every Aspect, and I never even got an apology or a follow up."

Cons: "I did not like aircanada changed my sit without asking me.I did not like delays."

Pros: "Boarding and crew were very good."
Cons: "Air Canada Legs were excellent, but Rouge Sucks!"

Pros: "New aircraft 787. Direct flight from Israel to Canada, no layover in Europe. That was nice. The crew was very friendly and helpful. The worst part was the airport in Toronto. Very confusing to get around in. And having to fill out custom papers for Canada when I wasn't staying in Canada or leaving the airport. Didn't like that. But the service of Air Canada makes up for the airport, I would use their service again."

Pros: "Econamy class allows 2 piece of bag."
Cons: "I only have one bag. My bag is weighted 57 lb and charged me CA$100.00. They should have averaged 2 bags' weight and I should not have charged CA$100.00. I think the service is poor."

Cons: "Flight was pleasant and food was good. I ordered veggie meal and for some reason I didn't get it on the second meal."

Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew was efficient. Getting on and off the plane was smooth."
Cons: "I couldn't believe how little room there was for such a long flight! There wasn't enough room for me to reach my bag that was on the ground even when the seat in front of me wasn't reclined. And the people next to me kept jabbing me with their elbows because three grown adults simply could not sit next to one another in such a small space. I'm a small person so if I feel crammed on a flight I have no idea how the average person can tolerate it!"

Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "The seats are too tight"

Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "The food was not good"

Pros: "Crew was nice but customer service at the airport and over the phone is terrible (takes over 30 min to speak with someone and a few times they hang up the phone)"
Cons: "Luggage was delayed for over 36 hours and customer service hotline was useless."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional and caring"
Cons: "My vegetarian food choice did not transfer from my United Airlines profile"

Pros: "Toronto->Shanghai Good In general it was a good flight considering how long (14 hours) it was. The new entertainment system has a lot of features and movies. It also has chat to other passengers which is useful when travelling with a group sitting in different areas."
Cons: "Bad Long flight but that is the way it is. The fight map froze on my entertainment system about 1/2 through the flight so the map was useless after that. One side of my earphones also went dead. My wife wanted something better then hot noodles in a cup for the middle meal."

Pros: "Air Canada is a first rate provider. Their air rates are better than most other airlines, and the value for the money is exceptional."
Cons: "The plane was SO, SO COLD. The entire plane of people were miserable. I literally shivered all the way from Toronto to Istanbul, huddled next to the stranger next to me, who was also freezing. It was unreal how cold it was. People kept asking the staff to turn the A/C down, to no avail. I couldn't wait to get off that flight."

Pros: "Love the new planes and choose aircanada for all my Tel Aviv flight because of this"
Cons: "Food is terrible and it's always very cold. Near the end of the flight the A/C started leaking water from the ceiling."

Pros: "The flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto was excellent and the food was great. I'm definitely using Air Canada in the future!"

Pros: "The crew appeared overworked and understaffed. I feel that there should have been at least 2 to 4 more to help with the large number of passengers on the plane. It appeared to be more than full and perhaps extra seating was added."
Cons: "The plane was overcrowded. Seating was extremely uncomfortable and much too narrow. I am a relatively thin person but the person to my right was large and kept on pushing into me during the entire flight. Plus it took us over an hour and 30 minutes before we left the airport because we had to wait until the entire plane off boarded before a wheelchair could be brought for my wife. After the wheelchair was brought and we picked up our luggage, (2 bags), which by the way were the last 2 on the carousel, there was only one line through customs for people with special needs. By the time we left the airport I spent at least 45 minutes trying to find the cab which had been sent from Rochester, NY to pick us up and when I finally found him he wasn't allowed to stop in the taxi lane to pick us up in the taxi lane because he wasn't an authorized cab in spite of the fact that I told the security person that my wife was in a wheelchair and the weather was close to 0 degrees celsus and it was snowing."

Cons: "1. I ordered kosher meal, and we haven't because it finished. 2. The flight was full I couldn't findo a sit with my kids. I sit separately."

Pros: "This was my first Air Canada flight, and I was beyond impressed with the service overall. The plane was extremely nice and very spacious. The flight crew was very attentive and helpful, and had great attitudes. I had trouble with my entertainment screen early on, and a flight attendant went out of her way to reset and make sure it was working for me. The 12 hour flights both ways were comfortable and enjoyable."
Cons: "I honestly can't say anything negative about this experience!"

Pros: "Crew abs entertainment were good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 10 hours. We were notified when we were already at the airport, no real reason for the delay was given to us."

Pros: "Crew was awesome food was delicious and very comfortable"
Cons: "The options for movies could be a little bit better internet didn’t work"

Cons: "JFK baggage claim long delay"

Pros: "Amazing and loveable crew, on time and very safe"

Pros: "Yes crew was amazing and bathrooms remained clean for entire flight"

Cons: "It was delayed on 4 hours."

Pros: "Pleasant crew. Comfortable seats Very nice food. Premium economy definitely worth it."

Cons: "Smooth, accurate and very enjoyable."

Cons: "More space and larger selection of movies and shows."

Cons: "Did not actively watch the movie that was offered, but it seemed awful."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "For international flights every passenger should be allowed to bring one suitcase for free, I am traveling with my children for family of 6 they charge $70 dollars per person and the grand total charges for suitcases came to $350 dollars. Too much and unfair"

Cons: "Food, WiFi on airplane."

Pros: "The service, cleans and crew was great. The food and beverage was very good. The sits are comfortable."
Cons: "The time between flights was too long which. made the overall experience less attractive."

Pros: "The crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Ordered kosher food, meh. Could have used a little more leg room because I am 6 feet tall."

Pros: "Nothing except that it got me safely to my destination"
Cons: "Food was terrible and there was a long human hair in my beef. Entertainment was one thing only, and it was in Hebrew with Hebrew subtitles. Bathroom was out of TP, not very clean. Crew was abrupt and service was very limited, with one having to walk to the galley for coffee or tea after the meal."

Pros: "nice plane, cheery staff"
Cons: "Flight was 40 minutes late"

Pros: "Very comfortable. Great value for money."
Cons: "The meal of yaman bread was tasty but a bit heavy."

Cons: "The middle seats cannot accommodate an adult properly. I sat for 11 hours with a strange persons body pressed against my arms and legs I couldn't get any sleep whatsoever Those seats should only be assigned to kids or passengers that are traveling together and want to sit together"

Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "Delay, food, entertainment"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Seating atrocious. Considering there first. Was given row 40 then at boarding was moved to 55. 6 rows from back. As domeone who suffers epilepsy and cancer and other health issues it was unpleasant sitting amidst lots of noisy children. I asked hostess if there were two seats up front was told “absolutely not” during flight i went and sat at back on crews seat just to make it easier was told to get off not permitted. Then i gave up. I fly a lot for work but wont be flying Thai again. Sorry disappointing. Ps I told crew member anout health issues and she was not interested. So cheers."

Cons: "Storage is too small for trolley or even a computer bagpack"

Pros: "Crew and boarding and price"
Cons: "Charging got coffee is a bit much. NO foot room"

Pros: "the part I liked was that the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "other than the pilot doing his job, the experience of flying on this flight (operated by Arkia) wasn't up to any basic standards. this began when the boarding started - we were escorted to our busses which was to take us to the plane itself. however there was no bus. apparently the bus was right around the corner but its perfectly aligned stop near the doors was hindered by a truck that took about a third of the spot. so for some reason instead of simply allowing passengers to walk 3 meters, we had to stand in a small inclosed area for about 15 min with no seats for the older people. once we actually boarded it was chaos. people stuffed their luggage in the overheads in such a way that they didn't close, couldn't find their seats and we're stuck in the isle waiting for others to find a place for their luggage. this happens, sure, but there was no staff in sight to assist and instead they were on the microphone telling people to clear the isle and sit down, like we're on a bus... why not have people board the plane in groups and areas? the bus did two rounds of bringing people to the plane anyway, why not do this smartly and devide passengers into boarding groups, for our and the staffs ease? Finally everyone were in their seats and the plane took off. this is a very short flight of 45 min. and I understand it's a low cost company but during almost half of the flight you just hear the staff on the speakers reading out commercials, offering to buy cigarettes and whatever, telling how they have the best prices(!). finally we land, and instead of requesting everybody remain in their seats until the doors open, like the staff does on every single flight I've ever been on in my life, the guy on the mic says some stupid joke. TLDR : the whole flight felt like it was operated and staffed by teenagers, and not the responsible and bright kind. I am very happy we arrived safe because the staff made me doubt the pilots abilities as well. nothing to say about the passengers, they're israeli so anyone who has flown with them know what it feels like. just put your headphones in, it'll be over soon."

Cons: "Got the worst seats on the plane. Didn’t have an option to select seats while booking. If the reason for a good flight price is bad seats it should be stated up front. ‘No seat selection’"

Pros: "They found an aisle seat for me even though I said it wasn't all that important....very nice of them, plane and service were great, stewerdesses were very nice. Plenty of leg room!!"
Cons: "nothing, all was very professional"

Pros: "All was cool!"
Cons: "All was ok, flight was a bit late, but fine"

Pros: "I liked the landing that put me out from my misery of the awful experience"
Cons: "I will never fly with them again , 2 hours of security at 5 AM in israel ! And 2 and half hours of screening us in italy just because im a Jew and my wife is not , theu seperetaed us and ask us question to proof our 7 years of marriage for an hour and a half ! Then open our bags , and went throw item item for another hour , touching our underwear and dildos infront of everyone in the airport, hello!!!! Humiliation!!!! "Lucky" we came 3 hours before our flight , obvieslly had no time to shop at duty free. The food (blinches if you can call it food) was descusting! Nasty , took 1 bite and it was nasty , The airplain was old and was playing 1 movie in Hebrew, what the hell !!!"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "On time fabulous service great processes"
Cons: "Should serve beer"

Cons: "That the passengers left such a mess and I felt sad, over all a great fought."

Cons: "El Al has a draconian carry on limit of 8 KG, which they enforce strictly. The also do not allow a personal item in addition to the carry on. This is extremely inadequate and will prevent me from flying El Al in the future."

Cons: "Check in was inefficient. I was assigned a seat and I was flying with my mom and we asked to be placed together and they said we'd have to pay to sit together. Boarding started on time but then on the plane was a disaster. It took an inordinate amount of time to board and get everyone seated. I was sitting the back of the plane and there wasn't enough overhead cabin space for bags since they back areas were filled with other equipment. The seats were horribly uncomfortable - between by legs getting smashed because of non existent leg room and with the chair itself just being awful. The room was so inadequate that the person sitting next to me was basically in my space unintentionally. There was no entertainment for a 4 hour flight which was awful. It was overall one of the worst flying experiences."

Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "Dinner was a sandwich"

Pros: "צוות הדיילים היה נהדר, סבלני, חייכן ומסייע"
Cons: "מערכת ההקרנה היתה מקולקלת. הסאוונדנלא מסונכרן עם הוידאו. לכן אי אפשר היה לצפות בסרט"

Pros: "personal"
Cons: "chairs"

Cons: "The check-in line and counters were not divided by flights, it was chaotic, and I almost missed my flight. The crowd was disrespectful and the staff not helpful. Only when it was clear that people would miss their flights, did a staff member help them to get through. I almost missed my flight, and had an unpleasant experience. I will make every effort to avoid flying with El Al"

Pros: "I dont normally complain and almost never give a negative review but to many things went wrong on my round trip flying elal. Firstly i took a backrow seat hopeing for some more space unfortunately the way the plain was set up there was an obstical behind my chair and i could recline there was no leg room and the seat was dirty i fell asleep and missed all the meals and the screen on my chair was broken so no entertainment. On the flight back i made sure to get a exit seat but i was aganist the window and the bottem of the plane door gave me less room than a normal seat the tray is stowed one the side of the seat and it was in a filthy compartments sorry guys i dont ever want to fly with you guys again 9 hours of this was just to much."

Pros: "Food was ok, cabin crew friendly, price is reasonable"
Cons: "1. Boarding was through the bus under the rain 2. Departure was delayed because bus driver couldn't get to the boarding position due to poor coordination with ground crew 3. Total flight delay was 1.5 hours (missed connection) 4. Some passenger announcements (including connection information) were made only in Hebrew (had to ask for English translation) 5. The only El Al lounge in TLV closes at night (even though no "business hours" posted) and you can't get there if you come early or have long connection in TLV 6. El Al ticketing desk in AMS refused to help with changing ticket caused by _delay of their flight_ and sent me to the connecting airline (I had single connecting ticket)"

Cons: "Took an hour to get stewardess's attention. Finally when did get attention, was told not during being served that someone would return after. No one ever did. Called over supervisor to notify that 6 of thirteen video channels had sound only, no picture. She said she would see what she could do. She left and never came back. There were 2 aggressive passengers on the flight that I saw and they got what they asked for. Is that what this airline would like to pride themselves in improving. Other issues too, but do not want to state a list of grievences. " Tired and disappointed.""

Pros: "The seats are all worn out... we had special food ordered. On the way there it was messed up. On the was back they didn't give it to me all together."

Pros: "Direct flight from tel aviv to new york, great security, handicapped check in"
Cons: "No USB port at seat, limited entertainment, unresponsive crew-requested more tea and never received it. Tight seating, didn't leave on time"

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "The light was out at my seat, & I couldn't read, & the staff said they couldn't fix it. There was no menu for the tv, & the majority of the movies were in French with Hebrew subtitles, unwatchable for this English-only person. This was a 15 hour flight. They fed us a tiny tasteless breakfast as soon as we got on & brought nothing around for seven hours! Just before they served dinner, I walked back to ask when they were serving & found they had tuna sandwiches in the galley, However, THEY NEVER TOLD ANYONE ABOUT IT!!! I fly to Israel twice a year, & this was my first unpleasant trip with El-Al. I think I deserve compensation. Thank you. Harriet"

Pros: "Food was okay; make any diet"
Cons: "The worst part of this whole ordeal is that we paid for an El Al flight but were serviced by a completely different airline; very disappointing and deceptive. The airline "Prestige operated our flight from Toronto to Tel Aviv. The air plane and the crew were NOT el Al. The airline Prestige had an older aircraft with no TVs, entertainment for kids, the crew was not El Al for an overseas transatlantic flight VERY poor...on the return flight from Tel Aviv the same airline and aircraft operated by Prestige airlines was utilized and this time the ordeal turned into a nightmare. During take off from Tel Aviv as the plane was gaining speed to go into the air one of the tires blew and we almost had a catastrophe on the runway. We were on the runway for 2 hours and then deboarded; waited in TLV airport for 8 hours before taking flight on an actual El Al plane. The point that needs to be made is to verify that you are taking an actual EL Al plane NOT a partner airline....the airplanes on an actual El AL fight are accommodating and offer good service, food and entertainment (which is much needed on a transatlantic flight; especially if traveling with children)."

Pros: "Price was good"
Cons: "1. No organization to boarding, I e: everyone boards at the same time without a line 2. Very little leg room and reclining room 3. Hardly any choices for entertainment"

Pros: "Schedule, direct flight."
Cons: "Entertainment is antiquated, hot meal was soggy, lavatory ran out of toilet paper."

Cons: "Plane left late and arrived late. As a result we missed our connecting flight and, because of the impending typhoon in Hong Kong, had to be rerouted via Auckland on Air New Zealand. As a result it took us an extra 24 hours to get home."

Cons: "El Al is the main airline at TLV airport, yet the line for check-in for them is the worst-organized line i have ever witnessed. They should do what every other airline is doing to improve queues, instead of abandoning passengers to a chaotic process."

Pros: "flight was two hours delayed, then waited at taxiing for another hour and a half. TV screen did not work, earphone plug did not work. it was an unpleasant experience."

Pros: "Good smooth flight,good landing"
Cons: "All of the above,very bad registration/boarding experience, the flight and the credit is great"
