Cons: "Business Class Seating had 3 seats in middle Refurbished 747 had new seats, but still felt like an old plane with awkward layout"
Cons: "Flight delay for 4 hours due to airline maintenance. Missed connection. They also messed up frequent flyer credit and very leather support in Frankfurt for connection. 2 agents only for plane all of people with missed connection. Lame meal allowance."
Cons: "Yo no pude viajar y no tube ni siquiera una remuneración un empleado de luftansa me dijo que no podía viajar Ali mejor por que no le simpatize y le quedó sin viajar y perdiendo dinero tiempo"
Cons: "If Lufthansa had not lost my luggage."
Cons: "Had two stop over in Germany so they wont let me board stating need German visa. Requested for rerouting from FRA to USA direct, but lufthansa did nothing to help other than make me stranded had to travel with totally different airliner. Horrible experience with them..."
Cons: "More movie choices and more music choices"
Pros: "Plane was clean and a little more roomy than most long distance flights."
Cons: "Entertainment system in my row didn't work correctly. Flight delayed due to weather. On board announcements said Lufthansa would rebook passengers with connecting flights and tell us arrangements as soon as we landed. No sign of Lufthansa reps at arrival gate area and zero directions on where to go. Had to walk miles through Frankfurt airport , go through immigration and security again without any direction one where to find Lufthansa and when finally found Lufthansa service counter it was understaffed with long lines and confusion. By time we learned rebooking, we almost missed rebooked connections. So much for German organizing and efficiency."
Cons: "Shortness of the staff at the counter when checking in. We couldn’t preprint our boarding passes and the staff was inconsiderate when we tried to explain why"
Pros: "Food was great and the staff were even better. We were served lunch and dinner. I watched at least 4 movies. The staff provided great snacks and wonderful company. Great flight."
Pros: "Service from Milan to Toronto was good"
Cons: "Service from Toronto to RdU not so good"
Pros: "The crew was very good and we were right on time."
Pros: "It was overall a great flying experience."
Cons: "One of my connections was way too short. I almost missed my flight. I had to run!"
Pros: "Good movie and tv selection, okay food and generous drinks. Attentive staff."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late in departing from Frankfurt."
Pros: "Very professional!"
Cons: "The movie collection could be better."
Pros: "Having a very difficult time thinking of something I like about the whole service. Maybe the checking in process was a little bit smoother at San Diego compared to other airports."
Cons: "As many of you know, Frankfurt/San Diego is a new service offered by Lufthansa. It touts direct flights to and from Europe. It’s main advertising draw was connection to the east. Many of their connecting flights at Frankfurt are scheduled within an hour of arrival. This possess a high risk of missing your connecting flight. I experienced this personally as a major number of my fellow travelers missed their connecting flights. Though Frankfurt has good directions, transfers take a long time due to multiple security checks and due to the size of the Airport. LAYOVER OF AT LEAST TWO HOURS WOULD BE BEST. Anything less, you risk missing your flight. I was personally selected TWICE for ‘random check’ for the same flight! Not sure how that can happen! The flight itself is long and arduous. the economy seats are small, cramped and don’t recline much at all. The entertainment selection was very limited. The TV touch screen barely worked. The food was tasteless and service was not much better. I have a hard time sleeping on flights with such bad seats but we had air hostess who kept talking the whole flight and that did not help with resting my eyes. I highly suggest taking a different airline through LAX. I personally feel like driving to LA and taking a flight there would be the wise move."
Pros: "loved the candy given to us when we left the plane"
Cons: "Too many announcements"
Pros: "The service was excellent along with the flight being very comfortable."
Cons: "A little more options in entertainment in the hindi language would be much better for people who do not like to watch English entertainment. Along with that free wifi would be kind of good to have for people who need to work on the flight or check out important emails."
Pros: "trip was pretty nice"
Cons: "service excellent"
Pros: "Travel time was good and easy travel"
Cons: "Entertainment tv tapes"
Cons: "Pathetic food, and really rude crew by the standards of an international flight."
Cons: "There was no food included, although the flight wasn't low cost, we didn't even get drinks, not even water. We asked for a glass of water from the crew, but they were busy selling the food and forgot about us."
Pros: "Very friendly and polite crew, pretty good meal in economy. I liked the entertainment selection"
Cons: "Bathrooms should have gotten a bit more attention in terms of cleanliness."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and helpful, even once we had a long delay"
Cons: "The cabin was very tight and the seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything!! Flight was great!!"
Cons: "We called customer service to change our seats to an aisle seat on both of our flights due to a knee injury and the representative changed them for us after trying to make excuses that she couldn't. When we boarded we found out she gave us BOTH middle seats in the middle of the plane on both flights, she lied to us about them."
Pros: "The whole flight crew was so polite."
Pros: "They fed us well, and the food was surprisingly good. Feather pillows were a nice touch, and great variety of movies to choose from on the long flight."
Pros: "Good service."
Pros: "the crew was courteous, attentive, accommodating."
Cons: "The offer to travel the next day by giving up the current reservation for a price, making us wait for almost two hours and then telling us that we will be travelling the same day instead of the next day. Initially they requested us to help them as they were over booked with an offer and we informed all our relatives, later with the withdrawal of the offer we had to call everybody again. A whole lot of confusion , discomfort and mental torture."
Pros: "My husband is very tall and had enough legroom to make him comfortable."
Cons: "I could use some more latest Tamil movies. There was only one Tamil movie available and that too was old."
Cons: "I fly Lufthansa several times each year. This flight was the worst I can recall. My husband and I purchased exit row seats for additional leg room only to discover that an additional row was added in front of us for people with babies. We were squished behind them with very little leg room. We were surrounded by several babies, all of them crying constantly; this was totally ignored by both the parents and the crew. I was ready to start crying loudly myself, wondering if anyone would pay attention to that. We ordered special meals online but were served regular ones. When I told the attendant that we should be getting special meals, he peevishly and defensively said "you should have told me". These meals are normally served without any special prompts, so I have no idea why he was so angry with me! The crew practically hid from all the crying babies and was avoiding our section of the plane for around six hours. No water served, no one checking on anything. Lastly, my suitcase was cracked and needs to be discarded. altogether: a horror."
Pros: "Lufthansa took great care of my two cats transport abroad. They went overboard in my estimation and along with partner Adria Airways I couldn't be more grateful,and so are the kitties, for the wonderful care. ."
Pros: "Good entertainment and food"
Cons: "Could use a foot rest"
Pros: "Flight was on schedule, food was good."
Cons: "Could add more to the entertainment list"
Pros: "This was my first international flight, and also first on Lufthansa, and I was thoroughly impressed. We traveled with another couple who've flown internationally multiple times, but this was their first Lufthansa flight as well, and they said it's the best they'd had. The crew were all excellent, friendly, and accommodating. There was plenty of entertainment options, refreshments, and snacks. The food was very good-much better than I'd expected. I appreciated that there were pillows, blankets, and headphones readily available as well. I'll try to fly Lufthansa every chance I get when flying internationally."
Pros: "Flight was grest"
Cons: "Very relaxing and smooth flight"
Pros: "I was so pleased with all the people involved from ticket desk to pilots and stewardesses. I would recommend Air Canada to everyone."

Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "More south Indian movie options"
Cons: "Crew was not courteous"

Pros: "Crew took care of business. Kept all the passengers in good comfort."
Cons: "Unfortunate delay. Never seen flight left this delay. But they make up the delay."

Cons: "Been non discriminatory"
Cons: "Overall good flight however the WiFi didn’t work"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant. The flight was smooth even though we flew through clouds the whole way."
Cons: "If you don't purchase a seat in advance, the airline puts you in a middle seat even if the plane is not full. I don't really like that."
Cons: "Usual complaints - chaos boarding and deplaning, poor entertainment options for free, headset not working. Had to deplane by stairs - we were parked next to an unused jetway."
Cons: "Attitude of flight attendant"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Seats feel like they keep you hunched forward even fully reclined. Very very dirty. Seats covered in crumbs and seat back pocket FULL of trash."
Cons: "Snacks could be better....seats are small.... it was freezing....no free WiFi and no Tv"
Cons: "All good with me"
Pros: "Kind staff. Nice, newer aircraft"
Cons: "Copilot was changed/ not on time and delayed the flight by half an hour. Also, sat beside a man who was far too large to be in a single seat with hygiene issues he clearly was unaware of. Made the 3 hr flight very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Didn’t fly"
Pros: "Take offs were a few minutes late but we arrived on time at each destination due to savvy pilots and great tailwinds. Staff was in a good mood and so were the passengers, no Scrooge’s!"
Cons: "The only BBQ in Dallas Airport Terminal C is a chain spot....boooo!"
Pros: "On time . No significant delays cost of ticket low."
Cons: "Tiny plane with small seats never that comfortable."

Cons: "Missed connection"
Cons: "rerouted through Philadelphia."

Pros: "On-time departure from PHL; on-time arrival in RIC, my checked bag was on the flight."
Pros: "American airlines is located in a small terminal at CDG which works to its advantage. Compared to other airlines, getting to the US from Paris is a lot easier. The airplane was brand new, entertainment on board is the best I've seen in a long time. In Chicago, clearing immigration and customs was a breeze, the airport is very well designed for international travelers."
Cons: "If there was ever a staff that was more eager to shirk responsibility I have never encountered it. At this point you might as well crash the plane and blame a duck. I am personally offended at the shear incompetence of the people employed by your "company.""
Pros: "Got into NYC early which enabled us to make our connection. Flight attendant also moved us to a row with more leg room."
Cons: "Cramped seating would have been miserable had we not been moved to an exit row."
Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."
Pros: "Everything was crew, drinks and the flight was great!"
Cons: "The flight, listed as a Finnair flight, was operated by American Airlinea. The small domestic plane was cramped and uncomfortable for a cross Atlantic over night flight. The expectation was a European transatlantic airliner. Make sure you check the plane model before you book."
Cons: "We were rushed onto the plane to sit on the tarmac. After waiting to take off for 45 minutes, we were told that our route had been closed and they were looking into other options. This was a flight from NYC to DC, route is closed? Once we finally got into the air, all was good."
Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"
Cons: "The check in process took to long. In line more than an hour."
Pros: "Staff was excellent"
Cons: "Had to change flight again because I would not have made my connection. Also paying for wifi that barley worked!"

Cons: "4:00 pm Flight from Charlotte to Richmond was cancelled; Was unable to reconnect on another flight until 11:00 pm. Waited in airport for over 8 hours. No voucher for food or beverage while waiting. Nothing was even provided on plane not even water"

Cons: "Oldest plan, small seats and very hard cushions"
Pros: "The boarding process was good. Departed on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "No social distancing of passengers on the plane yet there are empty rows of seats."

Cons: "working bathroom and entertainment system"
Pros: "Good pilot"
Cons: "Snarky flight attendant. Plane was late."
Cons: "The seats claim they have United Private Screening (TV and Movies) using the United app but it was not working. It worked well on the previous flight."

Cons: "Seating is kind of cramped. More legroom would be appreciated."

Cons: "Wouldnt refund my ticket or change my flight. Fee for everything"
Pros: "The crew is nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a technical issue and then the plane was very cold for most of the flight. And they said my green-tagged carry on would be at the gate when I arrived in Richmond. But then we arrived and they put it at baggage claim instead where we had to wait 20 minutes for it. Too many things were not comfortable or convenient on this particular flight."
Cons: "Crew was not available, that caused a delay. Bags were not loaded, that caused another delay. Gate was not available upon arrival, that caused yet another delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours coming into Denver due to an oil leak they fixed at the last airport. Turned out the leak wasn't fixed. Took an hour to get a mechanic to look at it and then they cancelled the flight. United's partner had no other planes in Denver so we had to sleep there after sitting in the airport for almost 4 hours."
Cons: "No TV Screens, everything needs to be purchased on board."
Pros: "I finally made it"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late, the gate agent was rude, the Flight Attendant was so large that he hit my arm every time he passed by, no Entertainment/Internet service. EVERY one of my United flights has been late in the recent past."
Cons: "No air conditioning... the plane was hot"
Pros: "I liked the extensive entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn’t like that for about 10 hours there is no meal service."

Pros: "The seats on this United flight were far more comfortable than the longer Seattle-Chicago hop. We had more legroom, too."
Cons: "Kept delying the flight for a total of 5hours, and then sat on the runway for 1 hour before take off. Was the worst experience of flying by far. Will definitely go back to delta or American as they are more informative and nicer"
Pros: "This was an average flight on a small, cramped, RJ/CRJ. There was nothing special about this flight and this review is only to stop the over abundance of emails Kayak sends you begging for a review...."
Cons: "Please read what I wrote above."
Cons: "Just before announcements to board, the gate agent advised the plane was being checked out / aircraft maintenance. The creeping delay commenced: 20 minutes, then 15 minutes more, then 30 minutes more, etc... with very little communication about when what going on. Finally, we were advised of a gate change and new aircraft. We landed 93 minutes late. Problems happen but keep customers informed!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The over all experience"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and it was too much confusion with no answers. Took forever to be helped. Would not pay or offer a discount for hotel room. Didn't receive a food voucher."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for the next day because the pilot timed out in the middle of the flight. I had to spend the night in a crappy room at the Ramada while others on my same flight got luxury hotels. I got a crappy $20 voucher for food that only got me crappy over priced snacks. It wasn't enough for dinner and breakfast. Since my flight was delayed I missed and lost money to the circus. 1 had purchased tickets for my 5 children my husband and I for a total of $400. The show was at 11 am and I arrived at Richmond at that time. Your airline sucks. To make it worst on my way to Aguascalientes I got stuck in Houston for the night and half a day because yall delayed flights due to snow that never happened. I had to before for food vouchers because I had already gone over my budget with the delay. Overall it was a horrible experience."

Cons: "There was a major boarding problem where somewhere free that we would not be able to board due to overbooking the plane tickets."
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "The delay from Cancun caused us to miss our connection. The ground crew gave no help, information, or baseline customer service. We were referred to one person after the other only to finally end up in a 3hour line at customer service where we were told we miss the ground transportation and would have to find our own way home. We rented a car from Hertz and drove to Richmond arriving at 5:30am.... very disappointing."
Pros: "Once the plane was good to go everything went smoothly."
Cons: "I don't think it can really be avoided when there is a leak in the plane, but its really hard to be delayed an hour for a flight that takes less than a half hour - and I could've driven that distance quicker."
Pros: "I wasnt on plane long"
Cons: "Our flight was continuously delayed. Our layover actually took than the the drive from DC to Richmond would have taken. I also misplaced my phone on the flight and had no help when I called United looking for assistance today."

Pros: "personal service"
Cons: "Nothing was fine"
Pros: "It was on time which was good"
Cons: "I arrive to Richmond, Va for a family reunion and with enough time to make the banquet. The baggage services in Newark didn't pack my bag on my flight, the next one afterwards nor the one after that. When trying to contact to see what's the issue nobody answered the phone, for a hour. The bag claim services from when I landed in Richmond didn't have a clue on how to contact Newark or to confirm my bags will be on the flight for that day. I had to do the research and find it myself while she watched a movie on her iPad. Needless to say if I could give a negative star rating I would. I missed the banquet and received my bags the next day and still couldn't get a reason from either airport on why they got left behind."
Pros: "I cancelled this flight.....not sure why Kayak keeps sending me these emails."
