Liked the flight both ways. The return flight Crew (DUBai to NY) could be bit more friendlier/courteous, May be it’s just the way they communicate.
Boarding crew was not the friendliest
Pros: "TV screen"
Pros: "Amazing crew.comfortable seats"
Pros: "The entertainment was great and the crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The ability to access bathrooms after turbulence has ended"
Cons: "Gate change confusion unnecessary"
Pros: "Easy transit. Plesant crew."
Cons: "Not much to add for an economy flight!"
Pros: "The seating was comfortable with nice ambience."
Cons: "The crew was polite in talking but arrogant in nature."
Pros: "Full plane. Boarding could have been easier with two entry points into the plane"
Cons: "Plane was late leaving but made up time."
Pros: "Yep crew very good .and kindly. Seat super comfort."
Cons: "There no usb charging on dubai airport."
Pros: "entertainment was great!"
Cons: "Not much to eat for a vegan."
Pros: "Early landing great service loads of legroom as am 6ft 5"
Pros: "Lucky to have the seat free next to me otherwise not much else good."
Cons: "Was supposed to be a A380 but they changed the flight to 777. I only flew with Emirates to be in the more spacious A380 otherwise I’d have chosen another carrier at better price. I also paid to choose seat which naturally didn’t apply any longer and was put at very back of plane so that money was wasted. They could have at least advised but the attitude was blaze and not willing to even speak to me."
Pros: "the people working on the plain and airport."
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Veg food needs to be improved in ROME-DUBAI Sector."
Pros: "The exit row due to my size good choice"
Pros: "The cabin’s atmosphere was great, food was on time i think and food and drinks were overflowing and tasted great."
Cons: "My LCD screen had a problem as i noticed that it was just mine that was having this blurring part like every 5 minutes so it was disrupting my concentration on the movie."
Cons: "I payed for emirates not fly Dubai which was low budget flight. They charged me for a coffee on the plane... not something I would expect after paying 1400 for my tickets. And no where did it say fly Dubai on my tickets, I would have gone with other alternatives if I knew like Turkish. So last time I use kayak and will not be recommending it as well. This a rating for my whole trip to kathmandu not just Dubai to Kathmandu."
Pros: "I liked that all the families were in a separate area on the plane. Food and drinks on offer good, baggage allowance good and the leg room was good."
Cons: "The delay to get on the flight, hard with a toddler."
Pros: "Cabin crew was courteous. Food was good."
Cons: "Boarding we haphazard."
Pros: "Total service extended was very nice"
Cons: "They treat you what kind a color your Skin color"
Cons: "There was no option during check in to request meal options- ex vegetarian request."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight in A380"
Cons: "Boarding at Melbourne was late and somewhat shambolic. Flight attendants did their job but not with enthusiasm or friendliness. Emirates flight attendants seem to have lost some of their enthusiasm and friendliness."
Pros: "No wonder Emirates is one of the best airlines in the world!"
Cons: "option to provide some vegetable sandwich must be there for vegetarian people"
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Pros: "I liked the boarding process. And the food this time wasn't bad."
Cons: "The crews have just been ok. There were maybe 2 that went above and beyond but the others are just ok. There is nothing outstanding about the service."
Pros: "I like the flight route"
Cons: "This is my fourth time booking Emirates for my route through kayak. The route is longer but I choose it for on-board Internet for work emails. Generally, they have on-board WiFi Internet, however for my return route of 21 hours both flights had no wifi which was disappointing. This is unprofessional because if you are planning on having WiFi to respond to work emails and it is not available once you are already in the air there is nothing you could do but get stuck. Never does this happen with Lufthansa, Turkish, Etihad. Disappointing."
Pros: "First off my flight was cancelled due a passport issue; my passport would expire in 5.5 months and was not permitted to fly . I contacted Web jet hoping that I would be rescheduled after I renewed my passport but unfortunately they would not allow me to rebook or to be reimbursed. I was traveling with my young son so I ended up loosing over $2,000, and now I have to start looking for other tickets which are extremely expensive at this time. I have waited all year for visiting my family and now I can't anymore . It's a nightmare!!!"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "A380 is spacious"
Cons: "my seat (head) was broken"
Pros: "- Attentive to infant needs"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and responsive to my needs."
Cons: "Entertainment system was par as other airlines but earphone jack was arcane and did not allow use of my own headset which is superior to the poor quality supplied equipment. Also the interactive touchscreen was not interacting well and at some point the screen froze leaving me without the ability to continue my movie."
Pros: "Iv only every travelled 1st class before and this time had to travel business. I hadn't realised the drop in standard would be so apparent . The staff are not as professinal , attentive and didn't seem very organised ."
Cons: "The food was below any standard iv ever flown and was quite frankly disappointed with it only the stale dry scones but the flight as whole . I voiced my concerns at the time and was apologised to . This however caused me to feel uncomfortabld and out in the spot ."
Pros: "Very clean and comfortable. Staff very attentive."
Cons: "Many sick passengers on board."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. I want to hightlight the exceptional quality of the meal served"
Pros: "The ground and on-board staff was courteous and efficient. The specious seating and clean men's room were added bonus."
Cons: "Coffee was ok, but could be better."
Pros: "Compare Air Portugal who flew this part to Emirates is like comparing chalk and cheese. Air Portugal need to up their game."
Cons: "Cramped, very poor boarding. TAP should reduce the recline of the seats to give more comfort for those behind. More and more airlines are reducing the recline to save annoyance to others."
Pros: "Emirates flight and on flight services were Superb!"
Cons: "Bought tickets on Malaysian Airlines quota/allocation but was turned away by Malaysian Airlines counter becausw its operated by Emirates. Im a silver card holder on Oneworld ao I wanted to have less queue by using Silver card privileges at Malaysian Airlines counter but was not accepted. Had to go onlong queue at Emirates in KLIA but it was fast."
Pros: "Air hostesses were very polite in general I like the leg space food was delicious"
Cons: "- crew pick wake me up to ask for my blanket 30 mins before landing - pick up head set when i had 10 mins left on the movie - did not like not having enough space to fit my hand luggage into overhead compartment for the exit seat. - need free internet - could not get online at all"
Cons: "Handling Flight delays Management"
Pros: "On time Large LCD in each seat back They kept the public announcements to a minimum"
Cons: "It took asking 5 crew members and 2 hours to fix one of our screens that wasn't working. Apparently there were other displays that did not work either so they reset everybody's LCDs. The food was bland"
Pros: "Everything was efficient and fast. The entire staff was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Good collection Should provide ear plugs, eye bands etc for long journeys."
Cons: "They collect headsets too early."
Pros: "Love flight with emirates every thing is good"
Pros: "Cathay Pacific continues to delivery a stellar experience in first class even on shorter legs such as the soon to be discontinued New York to Vancouver flight (888/865). They even brought back Krug, which they opened on the ground no less in New York, and offer access to AA Flagship Dining at JFK which itself offers flagship dining."
Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly as expected from Cathay. The aircraft was substituted from the scheduled A350-800 to an A330 but it still had lie flat seats, just not as nice. The crew was very apologetic for the last minute schedule change."
Cons: "Nothing can be done about the aircraft swap, I’m happy they swapped with an aircraft with lie flat seats as I was exhausted and needed the rest before landing in HKG."
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were good in order to sleep the night, and wake up in Tokyo refreshed. Cabin crew were fairly friendly, but not the Cathay of a few years ago."
Cons: "NONE of the business class center seats would recline. This meant in order to recline and get some rest, the crew had to dismantle your seat and release the locks manually. This meant the seat was in that position until time to land. So I had to make a choice to sleep or eat, horrible for CX."
Pros: "Airbus 350. Very good experience"
Cons: "Crew was jumpy. I expect them to be a little more gentle serving food."
Pros: "Everything was great ❣️"
Cons: "✨Nothing ✨"
Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy."
Pros: "Nice entertainment on this flight, modern movies and TV programs. The food was good, more than enough to fill you up on a 4.5 hr flight."
Cons: "The business class configuration on the 777s operates on this flight is not worth the extra price paid. I found that the level of recline (120 degrees) made my back ache and it just wasn’t comfortable. I’ve flown this flight several times now and this is an issue for me. I’d like to arrive refreshed"
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding"
Cons: "We sat in the bulk head economy seats for the extra leg room, but instead it was used as a pass through for the flight attendants and for other passengers. This was an older plane and there wasn’t an aisle cross over, very annoying! The chicken pie was scorching hot and no serving utensils."
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind and attentive and professional. I enjoyed being able to watch movies of my choice. Great selection of entertainment available. Food was good and the Hagen Daze ice cream was a great surprise!"
Cons: "I’m thin but 177cm tall (long legs) so the seats were wide but leg room was uncomfortable for me. Also, the posture of the seats are not good for spinal or neck alignment so, again not comfortable. No support for the lower back and very limited reclinablity."
Cons: "The flight crew was courteous and very accommodating"
Pros: "Good entertainment choices. Preferred check thru TSA. No one seating next to me."
Cons: "I don't think I will use Kayak again. You farmed out my booking to Voyama which spelled my name wrong. They refused to reissue my ticket with the correct spelling so I had to sweat out getting on board the airlines and now I have to sweat it out today because they again refused to reissue the ticket"
Cons: "Slow and old entertainment system. Bad seats"
Pros: "Attentive attendants made the process much easier/ great flight"
Pros: "Arrival in time"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "I checked in online, printed the boarding passes as I know japan probably isn’t ready for phone apps for checking in. When I went to the counter, despite being the one holding all the documents (and having organized the whole travel itinerary, the staff only spoke to my husband (Whi hadn’t a clue about the journey) in Japanese. They proceeded to check us in on their computer and insisted that we use their paperwork, not mine. What a farce. What a waste of paper and my time."
Pros: "I took the economy premium class. It was great. Seats very comfortable. Dinner was great."
Cons: "Breakfast - the omelette was not done, but other than that if was good. The dim-sam was good."
Pros: "Smooth flight and service."
Cons: "Only one water closet was available and there were no amenities given such as socks or toothbrush as other international flights provide."
Cons: "No extra blanket was available."
Pros: "Comfortable. Good service. No wait for restroom"
Pros: "On time, easy check in and boarding"
Cons: "Lack of variety in food choices, long wait at tarmac for take off from Beijing"
Pros: "The ground staff helped me get on board the flight despite a transit delay that caused me to arrive at the check-in counter a few minutes into boarding time. I have no complaints about the in-flight staff. Our flight arrived a few minutes early to our destination."
Cons: "It would be nice if the meal menus had allergy information printed on them. The plane was equipped with an older entertainment center, and some of the control buttons were a little unreliable. These are minor complaints, however."
Pros: "מסך וסרטים ברמה טובה, המטוס עצמו חדש ובאיכות טובה. מרחק קטן בין הכיסאות מרגישים ברכיים בגב."
Cons: "היינו המומים - רגע לפני העלייה למטוס, בשרוול עצמו, לקחו את הנוסעים הצידה ועשו להם בדיקה גופנית ידנית. הכוונה מישושים מלאים בכל חלקי הדוף האינטימיים, ולפני שאר הנוסעים. החברה שלי היתה בשוק. הרי עברנו שיקוף בכניסה לטרמינל. ואין לי מושג אם זה בגלל שאנו ישראליים, אבל זה היה וולגרי ופולשני. הימנעו מטיסה עם החברה הזו."
Pros: "service excellent"
Cons: "Treatment by EVA staff when trying to transit from Kaohsiung to Shanghai flight. Very incompetent. Take 90 minutes for them to figure out how I can make simple transit. Terrible."
Cons: "Terriable service"
Pros: "Great food, free, and also free snacks, lovely staff, extra pillows and blankets provided. Roomy, loved it, plan to use then again !"
Pros: "I really appreciated that Cathay flew another plane in to pick us up when our original aircraft was mechanically grounded at the previous destination. The crew were very professional."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to mechanical failure and didn't arrive from its destination: Taipei. We were not told about the possibility of our flight being cancelled as we arrived at check-in, we were allowed to check our bags first, issued boarding passes and *then* we were told to come back to check in counter in 3.5-4 hours. Our checked luggage had already been taken and with it, clean clothes, toiletries and other items that could have made the waiting more comfortable. After coffee and a snack we decided to check in to the capsule hotel at Narita. Minimum stay was one night at that hour of the day - for stays after 6pm. While I appreciated that Cathay got us out later that evening, the plane we flew was one of the oldest in the fleet: the seats did not recline at all so it was very uncomfortable. It was a late night flight but no one was offered pillows or blankets. (I did receive one upon request). We arrived in Hong Kong in the early hours of the next morning - 3 hours late - after the airport train had finished running so I paid for a taxi home which I normally would not need to do since I already had a train ticket. so my flight experience did cost me some extra money this trip."
Cons: "1-hour delay due to inclement weather"
Cons: "The first flight to Hongkong was delayed for 1 hour, so the connecting flight to London was change to a flight 10 hours later. Then that 2nd rescheduled connecting flight moved 10 hours later was AGAIN delayed!!! Wasted 1 day that would have been spent nicely in London. What a way to ruin our London vacation by Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Nice flight great service"
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "Good selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Long wait to board then to take off...why can't we bring water on board for this Fifteen hour flight????"
Pros: "Very nice crew and stuff , clean plane, clean facilities. Everything is superb."
Pros: "Entertainment Nice crew from Japan"
Cons: "Crew is not heart felt welcome the guest at all, changing face when ask for a blanket or other customers' request. Take long time for baggage check-in even we did for online check-in."
Pros: "We travel quite a bit and use different airlines. Actually we had never heard of Cathay Pacific but loved the whole experience. The aircraft was CLEAN, the people were so friendly and helpful. The seats were comfortable and the food was quite tasty. All in all we were very pleased-also it was price friendly."
Cons: "The seatbelt buckle is at a weird angle so ones arm is on it."
Pros: "For the 15 hour flight from Hong Kong, they served two meals and put out snacks and drinks in the galleys in the interim. The dinner was pretty decent, and they gave a small bottle of water along with Hagen Daz ice cream. The seats reclined pretty well for economy class (the bottom of the seat shifted too, which was unexpected). Power outlets at every seat and an extensive entertainment system with movies from Eastern and Western culture."
Cons: "Breakfast was eggs and some nasty looking sausage, neither of which I ate."
Pros: "Staff were always helpful and courteous. Seat in executive economy was comfortable. Food was good. Overall a pleasant experience."
Cons: "A bumpy ride but couldn't be helped."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "More water should be offered throughout the flight"
Pros: "Great service, very polite and concerned with the passenger's well being."
Cons: "Nothing needed to be changed. It was a good flight and I had a good experience."
Pros: "All around great value. Good food, nice staff, cabin pressure is better because the plane was newer."
Pros: "Comfortable economy seating, polite cabin attendants, and nice lunch!"
Pros: "It was disappointing . Crew was good."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working. Food was below standard. Boarding was also late."
Pros: "The crew did what they could to keep their moral up. Chinese airports are famous for always being late, and now I've experienced it. I don't think it was Cathay's fault. The layover arrangements in Hong Kong were handled brilliantly by the airport crew. Transportation was provided to the hotel, the hotel was the nicest I've stayed at in China and they weren't confused by everyone showing up (as often happens on layovers). The new boarding passes and cab voucher were provided cheerfully and everything was clearly explained by attentive people."
Cons: "There was a horrendous delay getting out of BJ. The captain was clearly distraught and very apologetic, bu what can you do when, after two 1-hr delay periods, traffic control says it may be as much as three hours more? The cabin crew were already clearly tired at the beginning of the event, and I'm sure it was all they could do to keep us all together."
Pros: "Good service. Flight attendants are nice, food is not bad. Seats are not bad for economy."
Cons: "We were 40 minutes late leaving L.A. and I missed my connecting flight in Hong Kong. Had to wait two and half hours for the next flight to Bangkok!"
Cons: "The TV wasn't working and the crew I asked for help didn't do anything about it"
Cons: "No Free WiFi in the airport, and the salad on the plane was taste-less. There was not entertainment device on the plane."
Pros: "almost everything"
Cons: "Old entertainment system with no choice of movies"
Pros: "Service great."
Cons: "Seats were three across very cramped and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Movies didn't work well"
Cons: "seats were definitely narrow"
Cons: "Leg space on this flight was less compared to other flights I had with TK."
Pros: "I can't remember the flight experience, so I assume it was fine."
Cons: "I can't remember the flight experience, so I assume it was fine."
Cons: "My flight tonight (0078) from MIA to Istanbul was delayed by over 5 hours. I am traveling with an infant and it has been IMPOSSIBLE to get anyone to help us. Finally, someone at the airport helped in re-booking our flights but I have yet to have anyone give me an answer regarding compensation! In addition, we are traveling with an infant which isn't easy but we had the bassinet seat on our original flight. Now it's sold out for the flight tomorrow and no one will assist in trying to help get us better seats. I understand things are out of your companies control but being in an airport with an 18-month baby isn't easy and no one in this company has made this crazy travel schedule easier. I would like someone to call me back or email me with something that could maybe be done to help us! No one at the call center will help!"
Pros: "great vegetarian food"
Cons: "very short time layover between arrival and departure in istanbul by time we departed the plane which landed on time at 12.30 we got on bus that got top terminal at 12.45 and ran crazy fast to get to boarding for flight leaving 13.25. flight that close together are very stressful and unreliable"
Pros: "Food good movie selections and Nice staff"
Cons: "Damaged luggage. My fist time traveling without my parents and didn't know what to do. Tried looking for someone to contact on the Turkish airlines site, no luck. My mother will help me when she gets back from her holiday."
Pros: "The quality of their team"
Cons: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "There was no personal monitor to watch movies during the flight"
Pros: "good entertainment system good legroom new airplane"
Cons: "lowered the food standards compared to previous flights flight was late"
Cons: "Again the take off was late in 45 min. Leg room could be better. Was very tight for my hight, 185 cm."
Cons: "Gate change not announced and when we asked at the desk, we were told "we are not the information booth!" Then it was a 90 minute wait to get through security."
Cons: "seats in economy far too close together ... nose to back of seat in front of me about 9 inches. when seat back was back."
Cons: "I have bought two sides ticket from Turkish Airlines. And i miss my first flight, when i came to airport for return flight Turkish Airlines cancel my return flight whitout update by email or massage by phon!!"
Pros: "Overall it was a smooth flight except for few minor issues."
Cons: "I noticed there were one or two times where the host had a list of food specifications but the trolley itself didn't have the kosher or vegetarian meals as requested by the passengers."
Pros: "That the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "The seats were dirty and there was no entertainment system. In 2017 this is unacceptable."
Cons: "to hot, very hot!!!"
Cons: "ذهبت لتاجيل موعد الطياره بنفس يوم السفر فقالوا لي يجب دفع غرامه 154 دولار سالت الموظفه كم التذكره الجديده قالت 130 دولار قلت لها على النت 105 دولار قالت صحيح ذهبت وشريت تذكره عوده جديده عن النت بعد ان سرت 4 ساعات الى المطار ذهابا وايابا لتغير الطائره"

Pros: "Good food. Wide choice of beverages. Entertainment. Flight is only 1h 45min Departure on time."
Pros: "the food is great, very good multimedia system"
Cons: "bread was cold!! food asn't so good"
Pros: "The crew on the flight were very nice"
Cons: "As our first flight got delayed, me and 28 other pallengers flying to israel told the airline agents that we would miss our connection flightfrom turkey to israel. The supervisor assured us that we have nothing to worry about, as the second plane would wait as we are many passengers.however when we landed in turkey the connection flight had already left without us. When trying to speak to turkish airline representatives about getting a new flight, they were super UNhelpful, we waited in very long lines and were required so go to a few different parts of the airport to get a new ticket, a process that was not friendly at all and very frustrating. After about 2 hours of waiting on lines, i got a flight that required me to wait 7 hours in the airport and measley voucher for a very small fast food meal. When i asked to be admitted to the lounge (as i waited 7 hours in the airport due to the airlines mistake), they did not agree to grant me access. When i asked to at least get the wifi code from the lounge so i can tell my familly that i am stuck on turkey, this was also rejected. While waiting in the airport, i spoke to many other people on other flights who had been stuck in the airport under very simillar circumstances, some even worse than mine. I also have many friends who have experiences simillar experiences with turkish airlines. If you are looking for a reliable flight, that will get you to your destination on time and will help you out when a problem occurs, Turkish airlines is deffinetelly NOT the flight for you. I personally will never fly with them again after the way i was treated."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "The flight from Istanbul to TLV was scary. The Pilot hit the brakes half in the middle of the take off due to a "technical error". It was very scary, even the flight attendant was in panic. Plus, the food was uneatable. Hope to never fly with Turkish Air again."
Pros: "Aside from the crew and their patience, nothing"
Cons: "Everything aside from the crew"
Pros: "Onboard service was good. Ben Gurion airport services were excellent."
Cons: "Departure was late by an hour which made me miss my connection. Because of this: I had to purchase a visa @$70 US Airport service in Istanbul was very bad. It took 2 hours before anyone would actually help me to organize my next flight to Milan. By the time I arrived in Milan, my family had left worried sick not knowing what happened to me. I then had to find a bus to take me to Lugano, another 25 Euros, and not to mention all the stress to me and my family. I then decided not to put myself through the same situation on my way back to Tel Aviv and purchased new ticket with another Airline company. Overall, the whole experience was a nightmare."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "the entertaiment was very poor..there wasn't at all audio - music or whatever the landing was harsh the boarding was late"
Pros: "Excellent and cooperative staff. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "My Luggage did not make it, I don't have any information about it :) Lot of people did not get their Luggage"
Pros: "Service, food and the entertainment system was great"
Pros: "Free food and movies for a 1.5 hour flight, amazing!!"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Except the bad treatment in Istanbul connection to Tel Aviv which makes me reconsidering flying with the Turkish Air lines I have nothing serious to complain"
Pros: "Everyone was nice"
Cons: "No USB charger!"
Great crew and great food. But having no entertainment is not acceptable these days
Pros: "Punctuality Pleasant crew"
Cons: "No food on the flight! Due to some problems with the catering service, only a small sandwich was available."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats, entertainment, crew attitude"
Pros: "Seat was OK"
Cons: "Any entertainment"
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."
Pros: "Fantastic seats are very comfortable. Makes long trips like this one actually enjoyable."
Cons: "For business class the food could be improved."
Pros: "Relatively fast flight"
Cons: "No entertainment or perks at all. And the worst thing was that before flight, they closed us in an insulated gate especially for flights to Tel Aviv, something made out of the 1980’s with a small kiosk with cold sandwiches and “espresso” from an automatic machine, if we knew this is the case, we at least would’ve bought something to eat before entering the 80’s terminal/gate."
Pros: "The crew was intuitive and caring. Very nice and polite"
Cons: "The is no good reason why we had to wait 1 hour in line for security as only two Security booth are active. I believe there is a room to increase the number of security mabhines and personal in that specific gate"
Pros: "Same crew. Really nice flight smooth and professional"
Pros: "Crew was ok. Had to manage difficult passengers."
Cons: "No entertainment. Average food. Little space for legs."
Cons: "Boarding from terminal f sucks"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Late departure. No entertament .poor duty free on board , no tabaco / alcohol as promised on the web / on board magazine Slow service."
Pros: "The crew were good, polite and attentive."
Cons: "Getting through security and to the gate was downright bizzare. We were directed to the special F gate, where we had to stand in the freezing rain in front of a locked door without any explanation. This is after already packing our jackets in. Then we got screened and just as randomly told to go to the main terminal, where we got screened a second time, just as stringently (pulling everything out, padding down the kids). No explanations whatsoever, the craziest experience, completely messed our plans to get a bite up, I wish we were given some information ahead of time that we are going to be sitting in a single room zone. The flight was ok, but hellishly hot all the way."
Cons: "I never made it. See reasons above. feel free to check into the letter I wrote your customer service. Terrible"
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: "For people who are going frequently to the US because of the small airplane from FRA_TLV A321 It is not worth for me buying Primer Economy since it is mixed and in British it is all the wayTLV-PHL 2 airplanes with primer economy"
Cons: "LH flight from Seattle was late, and I barely made it to the LH connecting flight to TA. Landed in Tel Aviv, but my one bag didn't arrive with me. Looked for the Lufthansa desk, but there is no such thing. They have farmed out the task of dealing with lost luggage and masses of confused to irate people to another firm. There were approx 40 people trying to get some information from 4 ladies, one of whom was new. They were unable to deal with many reports at a time. How about take a number and we'll call you up in turn? Instead it was like a push and shove pressure cooker just to find out the status of said missing bag and make a report. I was dealt with last. At this time, I was exhausted and angry. The ladies were very good and very kind. They informed my ride of the delay, and told me that the lost bag would come on the next flight. They took me out of the area to get a drink and a bite to eat. We waited. It came. We drove to my destination a few hours away. Never have I had to deal with such a time consuming shambles to find out the bare minimum of information. I finished the trip and will never fly with Lufthansa again."
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!"
Pros: "Boarding, seat and crew"
Cons: "Movies selection and audio offers"
Pros: "Please continue to use newer, updated places."
Pros: "The crew were very helpful and polite. The seats had plenty legroom. The food was excellent."
Cons: "We started boarding much later than originally announced. We may have arrived with little delay, however. No entertainment was available, which is not that great considering that it is a three and a half hours flight."
Cons: "the crew was horrible and rude"
Pros: "the crew kept their smile most of the time."
Cons: "bad weather caused problematic flight to the passangers and the crew."
Cons: "The flight didn't have any screen and The kids got bored. And made noise at the plain"
