When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage .

Pros: "Our flight on Swiss was excellent. On time, courteous crew, and loved the morning Croisant and the chocolate. As my wife and I are both retired flight attendants with TWA and American, we tend to notice customer service at all levels of an airline’s operation. Both our flight out of LHR to GVA and our return were smooth as can be. Nice job, Swiss!"
Pros: "They magically appeared with water when I got thirsty and were all great. Veg entree from Hiltl good but a little surprising. Baked apple slices on top of mac & cheese? Sure, why not.? And 2 chocolate bars this flight!"
Cons: "Again could not check in online., or at self-serve kiosk at airport. General complaint to all airlines: You can do better with boarding efficiency."
Pros: "There was a very long line at the check in counter on the way back. Many people were nervous about missing their flights.

Cons: "My Partner and I was dissatisfied with our connecting from Zurich to Cairo. We expected the same flight but we were in basically in coach with little more leg room. The chairs barely reclined to a comfortable position. There was no entertainment, just a three and a half hour flight at the flight plan on a small tv hanging over. their was no differentiation between the economy behind us. just the food that was brought to us, other felt the same as well who were traveling in business with us."
Pros: "I really liked the "About my flight" application on the viewing screens because it always gave me an idea of what we were flying over and how much longer we woulld be in the air. The food was excellent and I was pleasantly surprised that I could have wine with dinner or any time the attendants offered beveragess. The attendants were always professional and helpful. They all were fluent in English as well as several other languages. It was a nice touch when the attendant wore white gloves when he or she was collecting passengers' trash after meals and/or beverage service. I loved the cheese that was served at dinner. The warm croissants served at breakfast were a very nice touch."

Gate was at the end of the empty terminal. Wifi pass expired and no artery was offered even though the flight was delayed. Passengers were made to leave the gate to recheck passports. My bags were searched twice and while I fully support security this was excessive"
Cons: "Provide vouchers in consistent manner. Provide wifi alternatives. Don't use an empty terminal. Offer more toilets and water fountains."
Pros: "The service was great, the staff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The business seats that we booked were normal economy plus seats with no one in the middle seat. The whole idea of booking a business class ticket is the extra comfort that comes with the lay flat seat or at absolute minimum on smaller planes the wider more comfortable seat. Neither of those were present on this flight. Calling this a business class is a rip off."
Cons: "Seats have become tiny, crew were not very friendly. No ice on an 11hr15min flight , that was delayed almost 5hours!"

Pros: "The larding was terrible. I came in a wheelchair but am able to walk short distances. I spoke to man at the gate about boarding early and he said he would come and get me.

Pros: "Great kosher food! Very kind attendants."
Cons: "not enough foot room."

Pros: "it good but the food should be better"
Cons: "don’t know"
Pros: "Both friendly and professional"
Cons: "All is perfect! They couldn’t be better"

Cons: "No inflight entertainment even for business class passengers."
Pros: "Fantastic journey no problems at all thanks kayak....."
Cons: "I was disappointed that the two female flight attendants on my side (seats A&B) did not come across friendly, and any request appeared to be a bother. At one point I requested bread and butter, the flight attendant seemed annoyed and said if she can find some, and never came back to me. I went to the galley, where a male flight attendant was working on something. I requested some bread and butter from him, was met with s smile, and was able to locate a roll and butter for me in under a min. Please note, I do not think this was a gender issues, it just happens to be the situation with this case, and I specified it as I do not know the names of the flight attendants, but the airline should be able to identify who was working the different sections."
Pros: "Excellent service, onboard catering and transit facilities."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The food and the attention from part of the crew were beyond excellent."

Cons: "Too hot in the plain"
Pros: "Loved the food and staff"
Cons: "Thermostat in the plain"
Cons: "My mother is terminal, as in, she's DYING. So she was having a momentous flare up and we were running a little late. NOWHERE we were told we had to be at check in prior to an hour before the flight. Made it there 6 minutes after that "hour" check mark and were unable to make the flight. Tried to rebook and was told to pay the $800 per ticket that we already paid. Who has that kind of money? Guess I'll see if she can settle for sea world or the damn beach instead of Egypt like she wanted to. Thanks for nothing. For absolutely nothing."
Pros: "Our Turkish Airlines flight was late boarding and passengers were upset about not being able to make their connecting flights. The crew handled it well, but anxiety was high. The food is always good and one of the reason I fly Turkish Airlines on a regular basis."
Cons: "Passport Control at Ataturk International was a nightmare with hundreds of people ahead of us in the queue. No Police to secure the area, so people rushed the line pushing us aside and jumped the queue, this happened repeatedly. I would advise people NOT to fly into this airport and expect to make your connecting flight, because it doesn't play out well at all. We were in line for 2 hours and witnessed people pushing, shoving, yelling at strangers and generally acting like animals. I found the whole experience highly disturbing."
Pros: "First time I've had a gift in economy! Very minimal, but nice! Food was very good - especially for airline food. Crew all very nice, and pre-flight in SFO was efficient and pleasant."
Cons: "I'm a wheelchair passenger, which was a DISASTER in Istanbul!. It took nearly an hour to get to off and to passport control. And on the plane, it was very uncomfortable because of so little leg room. To get out of the window seat to go to the toilet was as bad as it gets, because of row in front with reclined seats - only possible to scoot across in sitting position. Not easy....!"
Pros: "Not only was the aircraft antique and sporting old seats, but the crew also upgraded two families with infants to the business class where the screamed their hearts out to the obvious displeasure of the paying customers. A true Turkish delight... Unlikely to fly them again."
Cons: "Good food and alcohol selection"
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"

Cons: "I have nothing to complain about. I did not at any time feel disappointed about anything."
Pros: "The staff from check in to on-plane service was very friendly and courteous and clearly did their best. The suppers were phenomenal! and the other meals were ok."
Cons: "The computers at the check in desk kept going down, but the staff handled this issue very well. The gates REALLY need a digital board that displays upcoming flights so that I can confirm I am at the right gate."
Cons: "Stop over in Istanbul, flight to US. Had to go again through security with not enough staff, stood around 40min in a messy line with no air-conditioning or water to go thorough security again. There were elderly people having to do the same. Later, after landing, there was no parking for the airplane, so after 10 hours flight we we're held for 25 minutes inside the airplane. New regulations will make me reconsider using Turkish airline for US bound flights, although it's a great company, unless they find a more comfortable and organized way to do the security check."
Cons: "Bad bad bad screens on such a long flight are a disgrace. Blurry and dark. Very old. I am a smiles and miles member and fly a lot THY but this was really bad."

Pros: "A great example of excellent service. The entertainment system really couldn't be beat."
Pros: "outstanding flight assistances, excellent food."

Pros: "The flight was effective, on time, the service was very good. Good food"
Cons: "I couldn't understand the entertainment computer. I experienced a much more friendly one at different airlines, and they had a rich variety of content and games. Please also make sure that all staff is fluent with English - few of them seem either not to be communicative, or not confident to speak."
Cons: "We called Turkish Air and chose our seats. They changed our assignment to inside seats. No notification."
Pros: "The age of the plane and the crew."

Cons: "Bathroom very dirty with odors!"
Pros: "Only check in with business line and fast track"

Pros: "The service was outstanding, this is one of the best airlines I have ever flewn. Considering its elegancy and exquisite service. My twelve hours from Miami to Istanbul turned out to be less because of the amazing service I recieved. Very happy that this airline exist and cannot wait to go back and experience this great airline again."

Pros: "a320 was comfortable"
Pros: "We had a Lufthansa pilot sitting with us on his was back to Frankfurt. He was definitely good company and taught us a lot about how the airline worked, his family's history working with airlines, and life stories. The flight definitely went fast thanks to Daniel!"
Cons: "I was sick so couldn’t fly, spoke to customer care and they refused to let me change my flight"

Pros: "Space in cabin, friendly crew and nice food"
Cons: "Shorter stoppage ;)"
Pros: "On the airline website the price of the ticket was $3000 and I bought it for $750 on Kayak, I expected delays, cancellations or something to go wrong and justify that price drop. Nothing of that sort happened! It was a comfortable and on time trip with no problems!"

Waiting for long time in a crowded bus to NORAD the plane then rushing out of the bus to Nita the plane with no lines and having to wait for the crowds outside the lane in a freezing temperature. Furthermore, there was no entertainment on the plane and the food was horrible. Add to this the very cramped seat space and no carry ons in the plane (unless you speak German)"
Pros: "Overall, the main leg to Frankfurt was fine for entertainment and boarding; the staff was pleasant; but, the seats on all legs were ridiculously tight, and the planes were packed like sardines. I was stuck on window seats on 2 of 3 legs, despite requesting window seats, and the comfort on all legs was terrible. In future, I will take advantage of an upgrade offer from the Airline."
Cons: "Read previous comments on likes. In summary, the flight was too full, and the service for my seating was OK. That is it... OK."
Cons: "No reason for the cancellation was given. I arrived in Cairo a day late for a 10 day tour I had already paid for which caused major problems for me. I will never fly Lufthansa again."

Pros: "Everything was great!!!"
Cons: "The crew attitude!!! Instead of saying "excuse me" she said "can I pass" she was rude"
Cons: "Dear sir or Madam, I’m writing this complaint as I feel so mistreated and so disrespected, I had a ticket# 2208688265549 with a confirmation# WP6DHB travelling from Tulsa , OK, USA to Cairo, Egypt. Everything was great as expected and recommended by my uncle who travels with your respected company at least twice a month till I got to Frankfort airport to take flight# 0582 from Frankfort to Cairo. I was stopped while heading to the plan by the flight manager as he called himself later, and told me that I have to only have one item on the plan, I already had one carry on and my hand bag that has my laptop and the charger, I told him that I was told by Lufthansa customer service the night before traveling to confirm the luggage weight and size that I’m allowed one carry on plus personal item like a hand bag or lap top bag and they have to meet specific dimensions. I even offered to call the customer service number for verification, he replied ‘’I don’t care, I’m the flight manager and you will do what I say’’. His words were really hurting, I showed him the tag on my carry on that I got from the previous flight it said (approved carry on) don’t remember exactly what it said, he reached to my carry on and tare that tag, I didn’t think that was appropriate even if the tag had no value he doesn’t have any right to touch my luggage without my approval, then he tried to grab my ticket from my hand saying I will get you off the flight, I got really upset and told him don’t touch my belongs. There was a moment of silence because I think I raised my voice (my apology to him and to the company for that), I realized that the conversation is not going any where so I decided to file a complaint (not because he wanted to me to only have one item but mostly because of his attitude) so I asked him for his employment ID number he walked away without saying anything, waited till he walked close enough that I can ask him again this time he refused to give me his employment ID number, asked him for his name he said it so softly, I asked him to spell because I didn’t hear it right he said it so softly he refused, then I had to look for his badge and the name on the badge I believe his first name started with P and last name started with T. I waited a few days till I got to talk to my uncle and told him what happened as he is the one who recommended Lufthansa and he has a lot of experience with your services he said that they might need to do that because the flight was complete and they want to offer luggage place for everybody, but what I surprising is there was many empty seats on the plan my seat was 032C and the 2 seats beside me (032A and 032B) were empty also there was a lot of carry-ons room everywhere. So I don’t know why he was this way with me, I’m really disappointed specially that is only my first flight with Lufthansa since 2015, that flight manager made me have an extremely rough experience. one more thing when I told him I’m going to compla"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "The most comfortable trip"
Pros: "Flight was on time. We boarded and left on time. Flight attendants were friendly and courteous. I was happy to get a complementary sandwich and drink on such a short flight. We arrived at our destination earlier than expected. Seats were no frills, but decent. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Boarding is stressful. A free for all. I wish they would announce and board one section at a time. I'm traveling with children! I don't want extra stress of people being so pushy. Also,on arrival the bus back to the terminal was similar."
Pros: "It was all great!"
Pros: "Crew are very helpful, but some how looked unorganized"
Cons: "Complete unorganization during boarding. Not enough staff. Plane is small and no entertainment for a 4:30 out trip."
Cons: "Thisnisnthe locationwhere my luggage got stuck"
Pros: "The crew did a great job. It was a little slow to board and disembark but again I'm pretty sure it was the people."
Cons: "One of the crew members at the airport said I had to check my bag but a woman with a bigger bag went on the flight with out having to check her bag. The people flying to Cairo are horrible. Rude, disgusting, disorganized. Took forever to board and disembark the aircraft. If I didn't have to fly to Cairo for work I would never take this flight again in my life. Not much you can do as an airliner though, maybe just warn the tourists about the flight."
Cons: "I was denied boarding on the Dublin to Munich leg of my connecting flight from Newark to Munich. My ticket was booked through Lufthansa, but the transatlantic leg of my trip was operated by United. When checking in with United in Newark, I received two boarding passes, one for each leg of the trip. I arrived on time in Dublin for my flight to Munich and tried to board the plane for Munich with the boarding pass I had printed in Newark. After scanning my ticket, the Lufthansa employees at the gate informed me that they had no record of me or my plane ticket in their system. I showed them the email confirmation for my ticket, but they still could not find any record of my ticket in their online system. The employees seemed more concerned with boarding all passengers as quickly as possible than assisting me. After being denied boarding, I had to go back through passport control to change my flight, and ended up getting to Munich nearly 6 hours behind schedule and missed an entire day of vacation. A Lufthansa employee told me that out of every partner in the STAR alliance, United is the ONLY airline they have had this problem with. I find this inexcusable, I will be AVOIDING ANY United/Lufthansa connecting flight from now on."
Pros: "Nothing. It was awful. Worst flight in years."
Cons: "Airport,business lounge, boarding process-they didn't know what was going on, business class seats we're nobody size seats, awful food-was supposed to be a hot breakfast but it was dinner instead, no entertainment, no tv screens, said they had wifi but they didn't. Nothing good about the flight. Crew was more concerned about keeping their curtain pulled than anything else."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and eager to help, as I was traveling alone with a baby"

Cons: "There wasn't much entertainment options on this flight"

Cons: "Check in was chaotic and unfair with people cutting in line and inefficient lengthy waits. The baggage policy was confusing and a pain to pay the extra cost because you had to go to another counter and wait in line yet again."
Pros: "The service was excellent. I felt I was flying in first class. Thank you."
Cons: "I think the entertainment should include movies."
Cons: "Boarding could have been handled a bit better. We were told our suitcases could not be carried on as they were too big, but we saw other passengers with luggage just as big but they got to carry it on. They didn't charge us for checking the bag which made the issue less irritating."
Cons: "There are no Aegean air representatives at baggage claims or when you arrive at your gate to ask questions. I looked in vain to find out something about my luggage and no one was in athens to help"
Cons: "The crew is not nice and rude. The checkin counter didnt allow me to have overweight of 300 grams. Ridiculous. At some areas of the plan the air conditioning doesn't work well"
Pros: "This leg of the flight we were pleased with after buying another ticket to Athens."
Cons: "Baggage was delayed!"
Cons: "I wasnt accomodated for my meal preference. The cabin was old and creaked alot. I was not informed by kayak of absence of luggage allowance"

Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent. Didn’t try the food because I was very sleepy. The business class cabin was pretty much economy seats with the middle blocked out. But I managed to sleep the entire flight. I have flown Aegean/Olympic on almost all their aircraft and I always look forward to my flight."

Pros: "Nothing positive to report, besides getting to Athens almost an hour late"
Cons: "Excessive baggage charges, Never seen flight attendants treat passengers so unfriendly. Lead flight attendant was the worst. First time experience and for sure also the last time we’ll fly this airline"
Pros: "Although they were at the right size snd weight. I was skipped dinner."
Pros: "We made it to destination."
Cons: "Absolutely no order in getting to plane. Then told people to check bags. Many ignored them. And they only selectively enforced. Lied about every carry-on suitcase being checked. Plenty of overhead space available. Coat me almosst an hour waiting for my bag which would have easily fit in the overhead. Was late to meeting."
Pros: "Very nice crew, had trouble with boarding"

Pros: "The flight was on time The boarding process was acceptably efficient The fight attendants were nice and responsive There was a meal served and plenty of beverages"
Cons: "The plane did not arrive at the terminal. Required going down stairs, riding a bus to the terminal."
Pros: "As above, for this 2d leg of our trip on Aegean, we gave Aegean an overall 5 because of the excellent accommodations they made for my wife who is handicapped. They went out of their way to make sure she got wheelchair assistance, and lift assistance up to the airplane, and this time,help from the airplane to the train station once we reached Rome."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and I was surprised a 3 hour flight included free breakfast and beverages. Boarding and deboarding was efficient"

Cons: "I am very disappointed in the way my ticket was checked when I was heading to Bucharest from Athens. I had everything ready my boarding pass my passport and my visa. Then the woman who was checking the tickets before we entered looked 2 seconds on my passport and said we have a problem we need to call the immigration. She started calling people and called her coworker, she didn't tell me what was going on! She didn't explain what was the problem, I asked her a couple of times what is the problem she just said we need to call the immigration. I asked her one final time tell me the problem! Then she finally told me, but it turned out obviously she didnt read my visa correctly, there was nothing wrong with my visa or my ticket, the problem was she misread my visa! Then she said oh I didn't see that sorry. This took approximately 10 minutes. Ok she apologized but it didn't sound sensere or honest. I felt embarrassed and humiliated, specially when she kept saying we need to call the immigration like I am some kind of a criminal. I was NOt treated the way customers should be treated. She did not have to be rude in the first place, and she should have apologized in a decent manner wihout any attitude. It would be great if you tell your employees to treat everyone with the same respect, and that they shouldn't descrinate against any nationality. Just because I am from the middle east doesn't mean I should have a problem with my visa! And just because I am 22 doesn't mean I don't deserve a decent apology! Thank you for having the time to read my complaint."
