Pros: "Dedicated to customer service"

Pros: "Excellent flight , seats, food"

Pros: "Beautiful airplane with an incredibly hospitable staff. Food was delicious, seats were spacious and comfortable. Couldn’t ask for a better 14-hour flight!"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight, which was almost 15 hours long. I give an overall 4 star review for this flight. The boarding process was pretty organized (without including the ignorant passengers who can't read their zone numbers, haha) because they called us up group by group, in a speedy process. Even inside, the cabin crew welcomed us aboard and showed us where our seats are. This leads me to my 5-star rating of the service. Very warm, friendly, and generally helpful cabin crew Qatar Airways has. They fulfilled all my needs even if they had to go out of their way. As for entertainment, I was very surprised at how many great movies they have! Especially the new ones! I would not be bored again with this selection. Food was okay to be honest. It was a hot meal that satisfied my hunger and tasted good, but maybe it's just me and airplane food. Doesn't taste right for me. And to be honest, I was cramped. Not even me but many other passengers felt like the seats were too small. Overall, Good experience!"

Pros: "Boarding from Doha and service in doha."
Cons: "ASSISTANCE IN DELHI..my parents did not even get wheel chair after long tiring journey..they were keep trying for help and did not get any help..I am asking is this the airline duty or not to give assistance who is in need.even did not get the porter to carry the heavy luggage.is anyone responsible for that? what is the use of this nonsense servey?"

The member of flight crew, a Latvian lady, who looked after me onboard was a real star, very efficient but still had time to chat."

Pros: "Great friendly crew. Efficient systems."
Cons: "Tight seats. Very little leg room."

Cons: "Did NOT know ticket was economy light!!!! I WAS UPSET WE HAD TO PAY BAGGAGE FEE!!!!"

Pros: "Great cabin crew!"
Cons: "While waiting to board SFO-ZRH flight Swissair personnel walked around and randomly pulled out passengers from line to check luggage dimensions. Since manufacturers adhere to airline baggage standards, no violations were found during checks. This misguided effort only resulted in publicly humiliating Swissair customers. Boarding process was pure pandemonium...this was the first time in recent memory, where all coach passengers were invited to board at the same time! Very inefficient! Crowded seating in coach,with ten passengers sandwiched in across Boeing 767 aircraft. Competing airlines flying identical aircraft have nine across seatings Thin seat cushions cause leg cramps after a few hours."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Food was horribly salty. I got the middle seat between 2 men. One of the attendant s was taunting most of the people who asked him for anything."

Pros: "I was gratified to see that the 777 Boeing aircraft have now replaced the older Airbus aircraft..... This is my sixth time traveling to Switzerland from San Francisco on Swiss....Their service in my opinion remains excellent......The cabin crew was cheerful friendly yet remained very efficient at the same time... The food was very good, , The two meals that comes with one's Ticket still also comes with complimentary beverage service .... and even a warm moist towel is offered towards the end of the flight ... not bad for a seat in coach ...."
Cons: "I had no complaints except that there was a 40+ minute delay in receiving our checked baggage..... this could have been a problem With the airport ground crew at Zurich airport ....."

Cons: "2 hours delay!"

Pros: "The seats would recline too far so that people behind would get their range of motion uncomfortably limited."

Pros: "The Boeing 777-300ER is ether new and clean."
Cons: "Seating was super tight. Once the person in front of me declined their seat the screen of the inflight entertainment system was right in front of my nose (no, my nose is not particularly long). I’ll consider flying Lufthansa or United next time - even if It required a stopover in Frankfurt or Munich."

Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."

Cons: "Despite paying for extra leg room I somehow needed more. Not Swiss Airs fault, but I know better for next time."

Cons: "Seat too small, no room, will never fly Swiss again. This was an 11 hour flight and I need more space and comfort."

Pros: "seat too tight"

Cons: "100% of our checked luggage was lost and two days into our one week biking trip in Sweden we have heard NOTHING from Swiss Air. No knowledge of where the four large bags are, no follow up and no help. Basically, we have been left with biking clothing and little hope that our bags will show up before we leave Sweden. Unacceptable and we will NEVER fly this airlines again."

Cons: "i am a regular sized woman, size 8, and a bit tall 5'9" and the seat felt wayyyy to small for me. couldn't put my hands naturally by my sides and the arm rests were too high to be comfortable, so i had to sit there with my shoulders held up the entire flight. was so sore afterwards!! also, the headphones barely worked (only one side, on the replacement as well!) and the entertainment system shut down twice."

Pros: "Jennifer - Appreciate the security and follow-up"
Cons: "Not the traveler will need to get boarding, crew, comfort, food and entertainment next week."

Pros: "To not have 3 hours delay or at least be notified ahead of time"

Cons: "Good was average to bad"

Cons: "It was weird that for dinner the meal was vegan as requested, but the breakfast was not and so couldn't eeat it. It was weird that one meal was correct and the other was so lacking."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Ivht"

Pros: "Flight was good. Boarding was delayed, but the time was made up during flight. Comfortable seats."

Cons: "Delayed in Munich an hour late"

Pros: "Boarding was great. Easy. Fast"
Cons: "Seat was cramped. Blanket was inferior."

Cons: "Was assigned worst seat on plane. Engine vibration on seat back"

Cons: "Lufthansa lost 6 of our bags and left us with no information or compensation. I sent them emails but there is no response from customer service. Costed us $500 to buy things on emergency basis for our family and they delivered the bags after 2 days. This was very unprofessional and Lufthansa has to pay for it. Can you please help. Next time we will certainly have to avoid The airline as their gate transfer in Frankfurt is horrible with very rude security staff who has no interest helping our family to board the flight on tight connection. Instead the person decided to go on his break right when we were at the X-ray screening. How rude and unthoughtful."

Cons: "I haven’t received my luggage and I have been in Mumbai for almost 3 days!!! I have to buy new clothes and plenty of toiletries, I have only had 1 phone call from the airline to tell me my bags never left SFO!!! Wtf!"

Pros: "Service"

Cons: "One crew member oversaw me several times when distributing beverages because the gentlemen next to me ordered two, and she assumed he's ordering for me (which he didn't). She explained herself, but didn't apologize but made it sound like it was my fault. When I ordered 2 beverages (wine and water), she said she doesn't have time to hand out two beverages to each passenger."

Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The layover was a little too short and had to run from one terminal to another in frankfurt."

Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "Many things. Starting from the online/mobile check in process via United airlines. I was not given any other option but to check in through the United website. On that website I was not allowed to check in for my Lufthansa flights and i was stuck with seats I did not want in my 2 long intercontinental flights. This has happened before. Lufthansa has no option to check in online if my first flight leg is united. This is a very big drawback and also the reason I would not prefer to fly Lufthansa again. United is bringing the quality down."

Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "Many things. Starting from the online/mobile check in process via United airlines. I was not given any other option but to check in through the United website. On that website I was not allowed to check in for my Lufthansa flights and i was stuck with seats I did not want in my 2 long intercontinental flights. This has happened before.

Cons: "Operation system"

Cons: "To be waitlisted till gate openes"

Pros: "Got me to Nuremberg"
Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "Lufthansa does not honor frequent flyer statuses of any of their alliance partners in regards to seat upgrades. Being 6'4", the ability to upgrade to economy plus/premium is important on long-haul flights. Everything else about Lufthansa is excellent, but I will not book with Lufthansa for long flights anymore because of this. I'll stick with United from now on."

Cons: "Bad food delivery crew members always restless mood"

Pros: "At a time when airlines are treating a plane like a flying bus, it's heartening to see Lufthansa's attention to detail for its customers both in terms of ontime departure, arrival and inflight hospitality is second to none."

Pros: "Everything about the flight was very nice except for the exceptionally tiny and narrow seats."
Cons: "Tiny, narrow seats."

Pros: "I liked how I was taken advantage of, knowing it will never happen again"
Cons: "After having my ticket Inadvertently canceled didn't like the lack of support in purchasing a new ticket through Luftansia's customer service agents that deals with consolidators such as Kayak. In the end I was left not be able to buy a ticket for three days after being quoted a specific price and charged about triple the rate originally quoted it initially quoted I wasted valuable time into my vacation along with an amazing amount of stress ."

Pros: "Everything is excellent."
Cons: "As mentioned above."

Cons: "I lost my trip to Venice and almost didn't make my cruise ship. Lost $300 non refundable room deposit. Nothing more than an "I'm sorry." from Lufthansa. I'll never fly them again."

Pros: "no complaints, everything went well."

Cons: "They sit us at row with 3 TVs and in order to watch we need to watch for 12 hours curved for 45 degrees. Please try to do this your self."

Pros: "Seating, Staff,"

Cons: "Would have liked smoother boarding and more live TV choices"

Cons: "I booked flight for my parents from Kayak for the first time. The confirmation number was: KAYAK Booking Reference KE40651 British Airways Record Locator 3IMN38 Booking Date Jan 24, 2021 So British airways cancelled the flight may days before the flight date and they notified Kayak but Kayak sent me no notification. At the time of check in we found that the flight was cancelled. It was such a hassle. I called kayak to rebook frantically since it was very important to travel right away. Your customer service was pathetic. I was told to cancel my british airways reservation and then I have to wait 24 hours for another department to call me to talk to me about rebooking choices. There was no concern from your customer service that since u are at fault so make correction for it right away by rebooking it. You guys didnt inform us for cancellation of the flight that happened days before the flight. I didnt like what Kayak rep was telling me and called British airways again to see if they would do something. They then were able to rebook me the following day with 2 stops instead of one stop which I had booked. So my parents took the flight with one day delay with extra stops. I had such a horrible experience with Kayak. I will never rebook from Kayak again."

Cons: "Food quality and selection. I"

Cons: "Missing one suitcase and it will be delivered a day late supposedly"

Cons: "Club World is a super dated product. The tech is old and you are uncomfortably close to your neighbors. Also even when you buy a business class ticket British Airways makes you pay to reserve a seat in advance if you don’t have status with them. That feels over the top for a premium customer."

Pros: "good"
Cons: "ok"

Cons: "The staff at the check in at the front desk were not helpful. Some personnel do not even have the training how to handle the passengers who have already checked in and have the boarding pass with them and even not polite."

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "I had to throw away some very expensive facial creams/cosmetics on my connecting British Airway flight from London to MAdrid. I suddenly had to fit everything I had into a very small bag.

Cons: "They lost my and 5 other persons luggage! British Airways sucks!"

Pros: "Liked that my wife and I could have a two seat row to ourselves."

Pros: "Food was good. I liked that boarding And check-in went quickly."
Cons: "The pilot flew too close to a lightning storm near South Dakota. Really bad turbulence as dinner was being served. It was quite scary and my wife and I lost our appetite. Attendants were also slow to pick up our trays afterward."

Pros: "Went by quickly and efficiently."
Cons: "More music choices would have been nice."

Cons: "After taking off in San Francisco flight got re-routed to Minneapolis because of a sick passenger on board. Caused me to miss my connection in London and the subsequent flight I was put on because of the delay. Spent 10 hours overnihht at Heathrow in London because British Airways wasn't giving out hotel vouchers just £15 in meal vouchers. Disappointing."

Pros: "We nisssed it due to British airways ineptitudeeverythubg"

Cons: "On the trip over, British Air had no record of my seat upgrades. They tried to accomodate, but it was not the same. They did process a payment for about $110 for upgrades both way, however, and I have written to get a refund. In general, British Air can be not responsive or helpful in the admin department and i will avoid them from hereon."

Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Flight took 3 hours longer than expected and they lost the baggage of me and 50+ other travellers"

Pros: "Plane landed at 1511, at Gate at 1525 (a bit slow), I'm through customs (only 50 people in line?!) and at the baggage carousel at 1535 (long legs) and my bag is already there waiting for me!! I'm outside having a smoke at 1538! How do they do it?"

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Movie selection was limited although I found one in the lot that I thoroughly enjoyed. As always with Air Canada, you only get the most basic snacks and everything else is extra."

Cons: "My dad didn’t get on the plane because the previous one was late"

Pros: "Everything was good, fine, but nothing stands out as exceptional."
Cons: "Personal space seemed a little smaller than on some other airlines."

Cons: "My problem is when United uses Air Canada the privileges that United gives don't exist and they treat you like anyone else... If I'm gold status with United theb I should be with Air Canada as well"

Cons: "I may be mistaken here, but apparently since I am not a permanent US resident, I needed a transit visa to fly through Canada, although this was not advertised anywhere. As such, we were not allowed to check in our flight and had to cancel our tickets a few hrs prior to boarding and book tickets on antoher flight. We would up losing good money since we were traveling as a family with kids. The silver lining is we flew Emirates which we should have chosen from the very beginning."

Cons: "waiting so long for baggage"

Cons: "That had to be the most cramped, uncomfortable airplane seat I have ever been in. And the coffee was awful."

Pros: "Ease of checking in, timely announcements and updates. Smooth ride"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was great"

Cons: "We're Not Satisfied With Our Seat From SFO TO YVR"

Pros: "The pilots were professional, got us there on time and did a wonderful smooth landing."
Cons: "The flights attendants uniforms were wrinkled and old, tired and worn out looking, their behaviour was the same. They were pretty much tired and disinterested in their job. Time to hire new blood, get new, fresh looking uniforms, and there definitely should be a weight limit, I have seen flight attendants who have to turn sideways to get down the aisle comfortably, what on earth would they do in an emergency. Yes size does matter. Look to JAP airlines for style and dignity in the job. Having said that I love Air Canada and fly it as often as possible home."

Cons: "I couldn't board the plane due to new documentation requirements for travelers transiting in Canada. I understand the rules of the internet fare (no returns, exchanges or cancellations) but the customer service was awful. They didn't offer me any other alternative but to loose full value of the ticket ($1700). Nobody (kayak, vayama, air canada or brussel airlines) gave me any kind of information about those new requirements and I ended up cancelling the whole trip as I couldn't find any other flight to get to Europe. Really upsetting...."

Cons: "My bag did not arrive at the same time I did. It was delivered several days later. I had to buy new clothes with my own money while I waited. Horrible experience."

Cons: "I reached delhi a day late and missed an important event. See ablove"

Pros: "Good movies, had gluten free snack choices, so important"
Cons: "Would LOVE closed captioning ability on the movie screens."

Cons: "I was refused boarding after being told I could fly. A horrible experience--rebooking for my wife and I cost us 1,000 dollars."

Cons: "It was horrible experience going through the Vancouver custom. Some one decided to random check a brown guy traveling alone. Okay, I get it. I give them credit for profiling me. But, I was very disappointed that they only know and follow the rules in their book. Dumping the luggage and wallet on the floor and then asked me to put everything back was not gonna help you find anything. They need to be bit smart and have some people skills. I mean a car salesman is smarter than this custom officer. I walked in for random screening with great respect for those officers but walked out with zero respect and maybe worse experience of my life. If you mistreat a innocent person just have a courtesy to say sorry or give them a stuffed canadian bear. We can understand!! One last thing for custom or border officers, treat the people the way you wanted to be treated."

Cons: "The connection process at YYZ airport. You need to clear security twice in order to connect. Risk of missing flights got connection because the walk to terminal is long and security checkpoint is very inefficient and sllw"

Cons: "Delayed by two hours"

Cons: "The huge line up going through customs"

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Air Canada pricing is same as other non budget airlines like British airways, Lufthansa but service is on par with budget airlines like Ryan Air. I'm amazed how they get away with it."

Pros: "Safety belt actually fit around my waist - I am a bigger person"
Cons: "I was on isle staff kept on bumping into me (not purposely) They need to take time to ensure they are not bumping clients"

Cons: "Gate 91 was allocated on boarding pass. It was switched to 95 Android did not inform anyone of the 10 pax waiting at gate 91. We were informed by one of the passenger that went to figuer out how Come that only 10 pax waiting at gate 91"

Cons: "The amount of hand luggage taken on board is getting totally out of hand people are boarding with two or three huge bags."

Pros: "Ability to charge my iPhone )"

Pros: "Good organized"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Lost our bags for 3days"

Cons: "We had a hard time reserving seats in advance"

Pros: "Landing and take off"
Cons: "The fact that we couldn't get seating assignment until last minute"

Pros: "film selections are up to date with previously released films"
Cons: "one of the staff attitude was demeaning unhelpful maybe just because I was asian"

Cons: "No snack."

Pros: "Seats more comfortable than most."
Cons: "Plane was pretty hot during boarding and taxiing"

Cons: "no snacks, no tea"

Pros: "No tv working. Surprise"

Pros: "Organized boarding"
Cons: "Crew communication skiils found lacking -likely due to language/cultural barrier. The english while spoken grammatically correct came across as sounding rude & intolerant."

Pros: "They boarded anyone carrying a musical instrument early."
Cons: "No snack; not even peanuts!"

Pros: "I liked the comfort and the service"
Cons: "the long delay in Montreal"

Pros: "Check in and boarding process ok."
Cons: "Had to buy meal on the SFO-Montreal leg, which was at the snack/wrap level. Constraint space seats."

Cons: "Bag was given wrong tag # by check in attendant and went to wrong airport. Has been extremely hard to track down"

Pros: "Seat space, leg room"
Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "Left on time, arrived ontime, luggage made it"
Cons: "Despite having checked-in online, entered passport and global/precheck info, and used the kiosk at the airport to verofy passport, etc checking luggage was a huge inefficient mess. I've never seen this at a US airport on a US carrier."

Cons: "The crew member on ground were very rude."

Cons: "Love it"

Pros: "Very nice people, seats large enough"
Cons: "impossible to work on my computer, plug without enough power turn off automatically"

Cons: "2hrs delayed and no explanation the reason. So my arrival time in Toranto 2am instead of 10:45pm."
