Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "We were not allowed to board our connecting flight and are stranded currently at the Istanbul airport and had to book our next flight with indigo as the staff closed the boarding ahead of time even though we were on time. Lot of shouting and crying by other passengers happening for the same reason."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was great."
Cons: "Better seat."
Cons: "Too exhausted from the long flight. But really wanted to say - Never flying them again after my itinerary is completed. They have just lost any revenue they would ever have gained from me in the future."
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Pros: "The planets and stars we're aligned to provide an optimal trip. Price was a huge determinant for me...$800 RT Houston to Delhi just can't be beat. And, their arrival time into Delhi is so early (5: 20 am) that customs and immigration is a breeze."

She talked with intonation like I did something wrong and she is thereto discover it. I believe better workplace for her would be to supervise some prisoners, not welcoming guests at international airports. All other officers (including other security control ones) were looking overwhelmed by work flow, but still polite and friendly."

Cons: "In contrast to my former experiences at different airports in Zurich, Boston and Istanbul, the check-in staff at Tabriz airport were really rude and non-cooperative.

Pros: "We were the only customers in business class, which was nice. Lots of attention from the crew, and food was good."
Cons: "Ummm, THAT was "business class"? Same seats as economy, with middle seat blocked off. Limited recline, no entertainment, no comfort seats. Nice meal, nice drinks, nice service...but I'm a little stunned that a European airline would call this kind of seating "business class". Only thing that separated it from economy class was a curtain, and middle seats blocked off."

Pros: "I didn’t enjoy this flight as everything seemed very unwelcoming here"
Cons: "Take care of passengers for drinks and others. Treat passengers with other languages nicely rather than in condescending way. I saw air hostess laughing among themselves and being little short with passengers who couldn’t communicate. The boarding process was very chaotic with no groups."
Pros: "Everything thanks"
Cons: "Awesome thanks"
Pros: "Crew members went out of their way to ensure the passengers’ comfort."

Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, particularly for business class. And there is no in flight entertainment. The journey can drag if you’re not prepared with your own. Boarding was slightly chaotic but expected in Istanbul airport."
Pros: "Service , timing"
Pros: "This was my first experience flying with Lufthansa airlines and the experience was outstanding from start to finish! This is what flying should be like! Other airlines should do what they do!"
Pros: "It was totally bad experience due to cancellations of the flights which I already booked to SJC airport in CA. The first confirmed Lufthansa flights No: LH 1305/ LH 488 ISTANBUL to SAN JOSE via FRANKFURT were cancelled. Then my family in USA contacted the airline and agreed about FLIGHT TK 005 / UA 1883: IST-ORD-SJC. At the checking counter in Atatürk Airport I got the last shock of being Lufthansa didn’t issue a ticket for the flight and the time was running fast and l had no contact neither with my family nor anybody else at the airport therefore i had to purchase a ticket to SFO via Frankfurt. In another word it was very bad experience."
Cons: "Frankfurt connecting flights are the worst"
Pros: "Meal was good."
Cons: "No entertainment system. Crew wasn’t attentive. Check in experience was bad, no ability to check in for your connecting flights, you have to make adjustments at the next airport which limits seat selection."
Cons: "During the main meal many many passengers had no option for the main dish.. Only vegetarian dish! Many passengers didn't eat."
Cons: "Boarding delayed, awkward & slow. Employees rude and bossy. Crew on board not pleasant or helpful. Food disgusting. Noticed same dramatic difference in passenger treatment between SFO and Frankfurt legs of the flight. They treat the mostly Indian customers differently. I go to India every year. It was same last year. My suitcase broken in transit. Reported. No call back after several days. I’m US citizen of German ancestry. I feel badly about lack of service for India bound passengers."
Pros: "Everything went well."
Cons: "Just talked to my parents who were traveling and they had no help at FRA. It was very disappointing and something they said they do not want to go thru ever again."

Pros: "Good crew, liked the food and service. Better aircraft interior."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, lines weren't well controlled. Ground crew needs better training in being proactive, assertive, communicate better with tired passengers who have had to wait for 5hours in the very staid, and outdated Frankfort airport. Same problems with the headsets."
Pros: "The whole journey with Lufthansa went smoothly without any delay. The transist time is just right. The check in is online is straight forward and the flight information is very clear. I will certainly recommend Lufthansa to anyone."

Cons: "Boarding was a mess and food was not up to the mark"
Cons: "They had grabbed my carry-on luggage at the gate. I specifically told the gate agents that I put heirloom plates that used to belong to my mother in my carry-on. They assured me it would be handled properly. Well this promise turned out to be lie. The plates were broken. Even though they were wrapped. I am sad and angry. My carry-on was small and light. There was no reason that it should be singled out in the first place. Now what?"

Cons: "Lufthansa treated us very poorly. When we arrived late in FRA, the gate attendant was extremely rude while trying to rebook and actually left us in the middle of rebooking because her shift ended. No one came to take her place!! She actually swore at us!! We were only able to rebook by calling the Lufthansa call centre and had to spend a very uncomfortable overnight at the airport without any certainty of when we would fly out. Lufthansa finally got us out on the same flight as booked but 24 hours later. And then, of course, they lost our luggage. Terrible overall experience."
Cons: "Transfer gate is too far away"
Pros: "The on-flight crew was great, very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The check-in staff required me to check my poster (for an academic conference), which has never happened to me or any of my colleagues before because the poster fits on top of luggage in the carry-on bins."

Pros: "service, crew , punctuality, food"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Food was OK but not great."
Cons: "I was the second person who boarded the plane in the business class. The flight attendant distributed ipads and headsets. She completely ignored me. When I asked her for one she said that they had only 15 of them and 16 people were in the business class. They do not have oe for me. I said why did you not give me one before she said I was sleeping which was a flat lie. Simply terrible and stupid service. Moreover, that flight attendant looked like a bar hostess than a professional person. Her English was very ppor. I talked to the bursar. She kept apologizing but it did not help. I am multi million miler and Diamond member with Delta, I never had an experience like this, AEROFLOT really needs to train their people better. Very bad experience."
Cons: "We missed THE connecting fligh. They provide us really low quality hotel not clean at all. Also it took us 5 hours to go to the hotel from the airport. They made us wait 5 hours. I felt like I’m an illegal immigrant. In the hotel there was no slipper no toothbrushes. They should’ve provided us a kit"
Pros: "The flight was on time, descent was a little bumpy due to winds but the pilots were great professionals and we landed very smoothly."
Cons: "Loud neighbors right next to me :-("
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was friendly and helpful. The food was fine for such a short flight."
Cons: "Boarding process was not well-organized. Specifically, there was no announcement of the boarding starting or continuing. You just had to know when it's supposed to start and show up at the gate. Boarding is general, without any division by rows or groups, which means people in row 6 and in row 20 board at the same time, creating a long line. This slows down the boarding process and causes frustration in less patient people."
Pros: "Nice crew. Spoke English or made a good effort. On time"
Cons: "Boarding took forever as it was off-terminal."
Pros: "Friendly and polite crew."
Cons: "boarding was outside. My seat was changed by Aeroloft at boarding gate to a seat at back of plane. uncomfortable seat."

Pros: "The cabin crew on Aeroflot are top notch. Polite, efficient, and with cool uniforms."
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "We boarded the plane, waitied for an hour and a half needed to leave the plane and board another plane all in a very slow Unprofessional way The staff was not helpful The flight ended up landing five hours late many people lost their connection flight"

Pros: "Newer plane than others"
Pros: "There is not a single thing I liked about my travelling with aeroflot"
Cons: "There were countless things I hated about aeroflot 1. Air hostesses have mediocre English speaking skills. I asked where the entertainment console was stowed at, the air hostess stared at me for like 10 min until she finally understood the question. 2. My flight from Moscow to New York got cancelled without any prior notification. They did not answered any calls. I had to go to their booking office to resolve the matter. I would highly suggest not to fly with aeroflot in future."
Pros: "I like the service who gave me the flight attendants"
Cons: "The food is not good."
Pros: "Crew staff worked hard."
Cons: "I was given wrong information about my baggage at the Moscow airport. Therefore, I wasted about 2 hours in locating my baggage on the carousel while my baggage was with the Aeroflot staff."

Cons: "Не достаточное количество завтраков предлагаемых в меню. Блинчики совершенно не возможно было разрезать. Возможно подогретые вместе блины и сладкий сироп или варенье не самая удачная комбинация."
Pros: "Better than the average US Airlines that I have traveled on. They crew were great and very efficient! Pleasantly suprised and will use them again. Suprised about having two hot meals of lunch and dinner about 5 hours apart from each other. Good above average"

Cons: "I think I cannot think even one thing that I like about Aeroflot. Staff behavior was very very rude and unprofessional - didn't know how to talk to customers. In flight food special meal Asian vegetarian was the worst food I had. Air hostess were very rude and unprofessional, brought me non veg meals instead despite of special requests. Both of my flights were delayed which made me miss my connections delaying my trip by 1 day and missing my other connections which made me incur a loss of more than $200. The remuneration I was given for meals was enough for just 2 chocolates a meal."
Pros: "The staff on the aircraft was very professional, extremely polite and knowledgeable!! The inside of the aircraft was very clean and the food was very good. We look forward to flying with Aetoflot again!!!!"
Cons: "We loved very much traveling with Aeroflot!!! We have and will remain their most loyal customers."
Pros: "Boarding took extra 1.5 hours"

На глазах у всех пассажиров. Мне не объяснили причины и не извинились. Я не буду больше летать аэрофлотом и никому не рекомендую."

Cons: "Tight spaces in seating area. No room to maneuver."
Pros: "Finally good seats"
Pros: "The connecting flight from Milan was almost an hour late. But the ground staff were very helpful and professional and help me to board the flight, in a haste. The flight crew were friendly and professional. The food was delicious and sufficient. Overall very happy with my first flight in LOT."
Cons: "Knowing that the incoming was late ground crew could have been better prepared with a motorised transport in the airport (instead of me running out of my breadth). The onboard entertainment could have been better. WiFi in plane would be nice. But these are suggestions. I was overall very happy."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Not being delayed :)"
Pros: "The flight was relatively short, so that was nice."
Cons: "It left a lot to be desired for a Business Class fare."
Pros: "2 hour delay, which had a quick transfer. My bag did not arrived with me. I submitted a luggage claim, they were supposed to call me up the following day which they didn't. I took it upon myself to go to the airport to collect my luggage. It took half day to take care of the luggage situation."
Cons: "Be on time, no delays!"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed both ways and we were late for connecting flight and stayed at hotel for 1 night"
Cons: "They lost my bag!"

Pros: "The new release movies included in the entertainment system were relatively new but not very many System had to reboot a couple of times Food and drinks were par with the industry standards nowadays"
Cons: "Food and drinks standards are lowered every year. Not necessarily LOT’s fault"
Cons: "The LOT ticket counter personnel is in need of some serious professional etiquette re-training. Always displeased expressions on their faces. Hence why alot of their own people opt for other airlines when booking."
Pros: "DELAYED as always!!!"
Cons: "Crew was having dificulty communicating in English."
Cons: "We had for different flights with LOT airlines and all of them were delayed. No updates were given at the gate and some announcements were only in Polish. Landing in Warsaw we had to circle around for a while because the airport was closed due to air parade."
Cons: "Departing flight left 2.5 hours late. Missed my connection. No one from LOT met us at the connecting airport to explain how our transfers would work. Airport security at the connecting airport bounced us back and forth a few times before deciding we should enter the transfer terminal and hope someone from LOT was still on duty. LOT put us up in a hotel overnight and booked us on a flighty the next day. The hotel was 1 hour drive, 50miles, from airport. I reached my final destination 13 hours late."
Pros: "All in all, the seats had more legroom than I expected for economy. Much more than American airlines (AA, United, Delta). Love the direct flight as it saves so much time."
Cons: "This was the 4th flight I have taken between LAX and Warsaw...but was the first time that there were no beer nor wine available in between meal services. On a 12-13 hour flight, this was a definite disappointment compared to my other experiences on LOT. The other concern was there were only two meals, and no snack service on a very long flight. This again stood out in contrast to the previous flights I have taken on LOT."
Cons: "Did not take it, was late and missed the flight"
Pros: "We made it there and the staff in Warsaw were very helpful."

Pros: "We liked the flights that we got switched to on Lufthansa."
Cons: "We checked in the night before and got confirmations by email and text. When we got to the airport and the flight was canceled, they said that they did not have our contact information!"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late and the gate staff was with zero information. And then - we started to board finally and I had no seat! I had paid in advance for two seats next to each other for myself and my boyfriend and they moved me to another seat and then said to bad, complain to polish airlines! We were sitting there for 2 hours and they couldn’t come and tell us they were moving me, they just separated us and said too bad?"
Cons: "Missing Bagage, plane delayed....."
Pros: "Very professional crew ."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Cons: "When we bordered ,they used a bus to bring us to the plane.It was cold and windy outside,so,not comfortable."

Cons: "the comment for the AMS -WAW flight segment applies here as well."
Cons: "I was forced to check in my hand luggage, but the Amsterdam personnel attached to it a tag without any flight information, so this luggage missed my plane in Warsaw on the connecting flight and arrived later that day as misplaced piece. LOT needs to fix the hand luggage tagging system on connecting flights."
Pros: "The staff were great. Very attentive and professional. I wasn't aware that you have to order a vegetarian meal in advance. When I told the gentleman that I needed a vegetarian meal he said there were none available but he did his best to accommodate me with putting together bits and pieces of other meals. He did manage to find a vegetarian meal for me for breakfast."
Cons: "I am a vegan. I thought they would have some vegetarian meals for dinner without me having to order them in advance. They should have more options than chicken or beef."
Cons: "no luggage"
Cons: "Expect flying without delay"
Pros: "When we got to the airport on the way back home, they couldn't find our tickets. I had online tickets and confirmation, but we were still not on the flight list. We had to go to the ticket counter for them to clear it up and put us back on the flight. The flight itself was not bad. The flight attendants are a bit rude and condescending. The seats and entertainment was not bad."
Cons: "1. Cancelled our outgoing flight hours before it was set to leave; notified us via email; barely got re-booked via different airlines and had to take 3 different flights to reach out destination; missed the 2nd flight because LOT put us on a flight that was departing 30 minutes before out 1st flight arrived. 2. When we got another 2nd flight, we arrived at our final destination without our bags. LOT assured us that our bags were on our flight before we boarded but calling and confirming that they were able to transfer our bags (only had 40 minutes between flights), but of course, it was a complete lie. We did not get our bag until the next day in the evening over 24 hours later. At that point I was happy they found them and gave them to us. 3. Turns out, they cancel flights pretty often and they also book people on transfer flights that are too close for people to make it. We traveled with a handful of other passengers that had the same experience and people were in tears about their horrible travel experience. 4. Warsaw Airport - they only have 5 passport control officers clearing travelers and because they don;t have lines or any type of organization of these travelers, the lines our out of control. People are pushing each other, crying because they are missing flights or not feeling well because of no air and all the pushing and shoving. I was pregnant standing in the line for over 40 minutes. They would not let pregnant passengers or passengers with kids with them pass in their disabled line. Only people in the wheelchairs were allowed to pass there. Horrible airport and even more horrible airline! PLEASE SPARE YOURSELF AND DO NOT RUIN YOUR VACATION."
Pros: "The service crew in the plane were cordial and professional."
Cons: "The ground staff and customer service staff made mistakes with our infant's name and twice her ticket got canceled. Instead of saying that they will just fix it they blamed us and were very rude to us when they had to fix their mistake. I suggest that you train your staff in customer service or you will continue to lose good customers"

I have trouble flying and took 3 sleeping pills so I can fly comfortably and now the woman woke me up and I couldn't fall back asleep so she can eat? So horrible. 30 screaming kids on the flight. They served food while I slept so I called the flight attendant 7 times to now bring me food since she woke me up. She never showed up.

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "The way they collect trash in the plane after serving food looked a little primitive. The crew walks around without trash bags and picks up passengers' trash and just stacks them on their arms or on their cart.

Cons: "Despite a 5 hour layover for our connection, one of our checked bags was left in London by British Airlines. Other bags made it. Makes no sense."

Pros: "The airplane comfort."
Cons: "I was forced to leave my power bank to the staff at the airport without any notification that I am not allowed to have it in my hand bag not even in my suitcase. That was rude and impolite. I'm so disappointed. As a passenger I have my rights and obligations, I'm aware of that! Yes, I would keep all the rules if knew about them. Now it seems that I didn't have any right in that time. I'll proceed with my complain at next level."
