Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Great staff and food"
Cons: "Comfort was not great and no entertainment options whatsoever"
Pros: "Crew did their best to make us happy."
Cons: "I felt duped by Lufthansa by the so called business class, where my legs barely fit, there was no entertainment, and there was no real difference at all from economy except for not having a person in the middle seat. It was equivalent to economy plus at best, but charged at business rate."

Cons: "Flight got cancelled."
Pros: "Crew was ok. Had to manage difficult passengers."
Cons: "No entertainment. Average food. Little space for legs."

Pros: "Crew was nice. Lufthansa crew is usually good, so no complaints."
Cons: "Even the crew said that the plane was too crowded, and that they should have used a larger plane for such a full flight.There was no entertainment on the plane, unless you provided your own device. My flight from Chicago to Frankfurt was on a very large plane so I have no complaints, but, the plane chosen from Frankfurt to Tel Aviv was much smaller, and packed to the gills, with passengers, and luggage, and crew. The crew themselves remarked that the type of plane used for this flight was inappropriate."
Cons: "We had to fly to mun because it was delay from florence"
Cons: "No Entertainnment , no space , very small airplan"
Cons: "To Whom It May Concern, My name is Eliezer Korbman. I was a passenger on LH403 with service to Frankfurt, Germany. Upon reaching cruising altitude and prior to dinner service, a Lufthansa stewardess reached across my midsection, activated the reclining mechanism and forcefully returned my seat to its upright position - waking me up to eat. (You may conduct your own investigation, but there was no prior announcement.) I politely declined, but was later denied dinner and breakfast. To clarify, I was unable to eat or sleep. This is utterly disgusting service. I am incredibly disappointed in Lufthansa for the way that I was treated aboard LH403. Unless I can be persuaded otherwise, I will be taking my business elsewhere. Garbage service! Shame on you Lufthansa!"
Cons: "Took a few time to ask for my kosher food. Crew couldn't locate me on the list, than the were out of kosher food, gave me regular breakfast, which I couldn't eat more than granola. It was pre-ordered, and I called to confirm a week ahead."

Cons: "the seat. not suitable for a business category"
Pros: "Lufthansa was really comfertable company, really good price and i'd so much."
Cons: "The plane was extremely small and uncomfortable. There were only two lavoratories for 60+ people, the other two being reserved only for the 10+ people in first class. As a result, throughout the whole flight there was a long waiting line in the plane's aisle, causing the crew to complain angrily in German, thinking we wouldn't understand what they're saying, because they couldn't go through easily."
Pros: "Good pilot and staff and service"
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all. The flight from Frankfort to Tel Aviv did not provide a pillow or a blanket. I arrived cold with a stiff neck. The personal spotlight didn't shine in the right seat."

It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
Cons: "Flight was late departing Cairo Changing flights from Cairo to Amsterdam was scheduled at 50 minutes. I asked the male flight attendant about changing airplanes, said our new gate was right next to our arriving gate. He said no problem. He failed to mention we had to go through customs and security again, and walk almost a Kilometer in the process. Fortunately they held the Amsterdam plane because many passengers would have missed it. I did not appreciate the lack of information from the flight attendant, however holding the plane was a godsend."

Pros: "The staff was very friendly and professional Even got some sleep, not easy on economy seats but on this flight they were actually good."

Pros: "the crew were very nice polite and helpfull"
Cons: "the flihgt was 3 hours late because a person who did not hold a ticket got on the plane and refused to get off, how can this happen?? this is a major breach of security and made me feel very unsafe"
Cons: "No food terrible idea to serve orange, oll dos nasty hands Stick to a site"

Cons: "The vegetarian meal was OK"
Cons: "We flew from TLV to Skopje via Vienna. None of the flight were on time and there was zero communication about the flight status. We arrived to the gate to start the boarding and they just told us wait here for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes we were asked to wait another 20 minutes. Only when we missed the take off time by 10 minutes they bothered to update us and inform us that the flight is being delayed in 2 hours."
Cons: "no entertainment at all Chairs are not comfortable at all no cushions to ease the back pains"
Cons: "The connecting flight from Vienna to TLV was terrible. Austrian airline employees at the airport are rude. The information about our connecting flight was not readily or easily accessible. The flight crew from Vienna to TLV were not kind. My daughter 11 years old went hungry without a meal. The stewardess kept telling her the food was coming & never did. This was a terrible trip & we will never use Austrian air again. I will tell all my family & friends of my terrible experience."

Pros: "The staff was very pleasant"
Cons: "Very crowded plane!"
Pros: "The B-767 is far superior to the B-777 in comfort; it is not so horribly crowded."
Cons: "Austrian check-in at VIE was a disaster. None of the machines could read my passport; and when you entered the data by alternative methods it STILL required a machine to read the passport--which it exactly what they were unable to do. Thus, it was a circular Catch 22. I went through six different lady agents working my way through the system, until they finally took my bag and let me go. They themselves said it was new to them and they did not fully grasp how it worked and they did not know why it did not accept me. SOFTWARE PEOPLE BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD."
Pros: "Decent between chare distance for a medium sized airplane (A321)"
Cons: "40 minutes late, no entertainment, mediocre lunch, not enough space in the compartment for hand bags"

Pros: "I flew to Venice on Austrian Airlines to make a connection on an Air Canada flight to Toronto. When we debarked from the Austrian Airline onto the tarmac and picked up our luggage, I could find no signs indicating where to go for connecting flights, nor any signs indicating the gates of connecting flights. I was told that to make a connecting flight, I should go out to the main lobby of the airport, At the information desk they directed me to the Air Canada check in desk, where I found the check-in for my flight was closed. That was the the beginning of a nightmare chase to get to the plane to Toronto. I made it only because of the kindness of people in the check in, security and customs lines. Austrian Airlines should be kinder to its passengers making connecting flights. They seemed to abandon us passengers in a chaotic airport."

Pros: "seats are comfortable, boarding was fast"

Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."

My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "Food was great, enjoyed watching videos, staff very profession and friendly."

Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"
Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."

Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed that the flight didn't have wifi / USB):"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."

Cons: "Very old aircraft"
Pros: "Food was great ."
Cons: "My chair was not comfortable."
Pros: "Etihad is always my first choice in aircraft, in-flight service and ground staff. I've flown them all, and Etihad is a best-in-class..."
Cons: "Delayed by 2.5hrs in Abu Dhabi due maintenance....better to find it on the ground than in the air, I guess!"
Pros: "Entertainment on flight was good. Very comfortable seating and courteous crew. Food was above average with not much variety."
Cons: "In-flight WIFI was very slow and felt a bit expensive. Boarding was a bit unorganized, but OK. Flight arrived a bit late and took-off 3 hrs late than the estimated take-off time and there was nothing offered in-flight during this time apart from water, which was a very bad experience."
Cons: "Delay of 2 hours in taking g off. We were all about n the plane. Not enough explanation given for this"
Cons: "Lied to me about my seat assignment. I was teady to pay for extra leg room bufor they declined and said they assigned extra leg room seat. But later I found that it is Norma seat. Liers"

Cons: "Food is not good, poor quality."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The seats super uncomfortable and the entertainment is very mediocre Qatar airways way better"
Cons: "The ground staff at Dallas were extremely rude. Made an old woman cry. Did not use common sense to check in people. They were weighing even obvious very small back packs that were obviously less than 3 lbs. talked to people in a rude manner and were not very helpful. I flew more 15 times in the last years. By far the worst experience. Flew emirates. Delta. Klm France airways. British airways. Even kenya airways. American and united. By far the worst experience. Service service"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and the food is very good."
Cons: "The seats were very marrow and crammed"

Cons: "Very noisy with loads of kids, crying babies"
Cons: "Food wasn't great."
Pros: "The crew were good and accommodating, this was the only positive."
Cons: "the Food is the worst ever, i had better experience on an economy class with a budget airliner. on the 4 sectors i had with Etihad, it was breakfast menu no matter what time it was and it was the same choices which had to do with a form of eggs. i opted not to be served. the plane is old, seat is not functioning well, entertainment screen was not touch and had to be operated with the remote which was not working. really it was a huge disappointment. may be Etihad reserve their good stuff for the European and American sectors. I will never fly Etihad business unless I have no choice."

Cons: "No legroom. Inattentive stewards."
Pros: "Comfortable flight with smooth transit."

Pros: "Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats too cramped. No jetway in Abu Dhabi."
Cons: "Plane was not maintained at a comfortable temperature. It was just downright hot! But that was our experience with all our Etihad flights. Planes are not maintained at comfortable temperatures. Food was awful - boiled chicken taste While handing out sandwiches and drinks stewardess just gave my husband whatever I asked for without checking with him. Many times he was overlooked by the stewardesses on either side as he was in a middle seat. I did not see a single onboard crew crack a smile, robotic service. Not impressed with my first Etihad experience."
Pros: "Punctual. Orderly pretty good crew. This flight is not that good usually"
Cons: "No space for overhead luggage. Seats are not great."
Cons: "Terrible food. Couldn't care less crew."
Pros: "Flight was on time and even landed to JFK an hour early. Flight was not full. Hence, enjoyed free vacant seats to lay down. Landing was nice and smooth"
Cons: "Food was horrible. No desert provided. Juice was not natural. It was sugar added juices. USB port was not working to charge my smart phone."
Cons: "Hair was served in the food and the etihad airlines did not do anything other than offer a mere 10k goodwill miles and said even that they don't do but we're doing me a favor by doing so. I would never travel again on this airline ever."
Pros: "Chair was comfy"
Cons: "crew were unorganized & rude Videos were very old & not updated for long time at least 3 yrs old"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as was the food and the aircraft itself. No complaints."

Cons: "I got violently ill after getting off the flight. The only food I had in the last 24 hours had been from Etihad. I threw up for two days straight."
Pros: "Ethihad portion of flight was very good, as usual. The flight crew on this particular leg was particularly outstanding, especially with their extra attention to our children."
Cons: "Some of the crew members are very rude and that really disappointed me."
Pros: "The only positive was that it followed the time and the crew was good."
Cons: "I paid 22 bucks for wifi services and it never worked one bit. The crew bluntly told me that they can't do much about it. I would definitely travel via a different airline primarily due to the fact that the wifi wasnt working and the leg space is terrible for an 18 hour flight."
Cons: "On March 20, 2016, Baggage conveyor system not operational causing great inconvenience and needed more Check-in ticket agents. Food was OK except the Breakfast or last meal before arrival at Lahore Pakistan."
Pros: "Polite staff."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight with not much space to avoid touching your neighbor. It really made the 13 hour flight uncomfortable to sleep. On a shorter flight it wouldn't have been as big of an issue but this overnight trip it was rough."
Cons: "It was standard domestic business class seat, not a pod. Also had 2 screaming kids. Windows were dirty so hard to see out."
Cons: "Long flight and service was not that good."
Cons: "The worst experience ever."
Cons: "Leg space sucks real bad! And your crew offers too much to drink when asked by someone.. There has to be a limit in alcohol serving.. Had bad experience this time.. The adjacent person had one too much to drink and it was horrible .. Smell and his attitude!"
Pros: "food is not good ,"
Pros: "The flights seemed to go fast once we were in the air and it was nice the pilot was trying to get us there earlier because we had taken off late."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."
Cons: "We were early arriving on both legs of our flight, which was nice. Charlotte Airport staff was rude as usual, so nothing new there. Overall, we had a great trip."
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing. Super considerate and very fun to talk to/be around especially on my first flight."
Cons: "Honestly, nothing! The entertainment was not necessary for such short flights and were still available. The pretzels were... well... pretzels so no complaint there. Overall great flight"
Pros: "Nothing, really. But it could have been worse."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Did they run out of planes or something? They couldn't have used a backup? Plane was old and junky. Seats, of course, were way too small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "The seat is uncomfortable"
Pros: "The flight attendant gave me a whole can of Diet Coke (I didn’t ask for it)"
Cons: "Seat number is crazy. ACDF. How about ABCD..."

Cons: "Boarding crew was not very polite. You can get the same message across with out being rude. Just not necessary."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Absolutely no accommodation for seat assignments and the lady at the gate was so rude for even just asking to sit next to my fiancé even though there were tons of single people on the flight."

Cons: "The food was really bad. There wasn’t a lot of variety in entertainment."
Cons: "No legroom in 17 E"
Pros: "New, clean plane"

Pros: "AA128 is nice. The plane is new and the seat is very comfortable. The service is fine."
Cons: "Food is at a very small portion ( I am a small Asian lady so I am fine but barely enough for a child.). My luggage was lost."

Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "very little service"
Cons: "Some turbulence"
Cons: "The gate changes...........and no information in 3 hour delay"
Cons: "Small seats."
Cons: "I had a woman way too large for her seat crowd 6 inches into my seat which I paid extra for and she did not. She also had a baby which ended up with its head in my lap and she spills formula on me. My body was so contorted I couldn’t sleep the whole flight and it was a 14 hour flight. Dandy attendant tells the guy in the aisle seat That he was such a good passenger that if she had a metal she would give it to him. I’m sitting there like WTF I have only Peed once in 13 hours because the baby was in the bassinet sleeping and I didn’t want to disturb it. And the WiFi didn’t work"
Pros: "Very comfortable. Each seat had its own monitor with lots of entertainment options."
Pros: "No hassle of changing terminals in JFK, no bagagge claim, AA check-in-this time, was a "good luck"....Connection in Helsinki, very quik!"

Pros: "Food was good and service and crew were excellent"
Cons: "At least one of the entertainment systems wasn't working right. Otherwise everything was okay."
Pros: "Appreciated how American Airlines provided two meals on this international flight. With prior flights with AA, the airline did not but clearly understood it to be for domestic flights. My mother was extremely happy with the service Iberia provided on her flight today."
Pros: "Friendly crew; okay food and nice movies. Security screening went fairly quick. No abnormal long lines."
Cons: "I could not check in and pay for my second bag at the kiosk. I had to wait in the very long ticketing line to get help. Also, it was not clear that the international flight flew from the AA terminal and not from the International terminal where Iberia flies from...I had to walk to the AA terminal with all my bags which was stressful since I was dropped off at the international terminal which made sense as it was an international flight and the ticket did not say it was flying from the AA terminal only that it was operated by AA.."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Flight delayed from CLT-LGA: Missed connection by 1 minute. They practically slammed the door in our face."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and flight was smooth."

Cons: "Missed first round of golf. Have no clubs or clothes. So far this sucks."
Cons: "The airline did not inform us that the flight lands and passengers would need to travel by bus to the terminal. Just a surprise. I would like to know when booking the flight."
Pros: "All connections-smooth"
Pros: "Everything was fine except..."
Cons: "Kosher meals were so so."
Pros: "An agent found me a window seat for the Chicago-Barcelona leg of the trip with extra leg room. That was amazing. Also, the lost luggage assistant for American Airlines was super helpful and nice. Also, the 787 (I think that was the Chicago-Barcelona craft) was a very enjoyable airplane. It was super smooth. It had high tech windows that adjusted the amount or type of light that could filter through the windows depending on the settings."

Cons: "Too confused!"
Pros: "I arrived at my destination"
