Cons: "It was full, Ben if Lufthansa said on their website that they keep physical distance for passangers! Liars!"

Pros: "Food was not available for flight."
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Nothing was good, Soeacial meal Asian food was pathetic no taste completely bland. Boarding was chaos, too many confusions and crew was clueless. Will never fly A380 again as there are too many passengers and airline don’t know how to handle. On arriving in DEL the baggage room 2:30 hrs to come. Totally disappointed. Lufthansa has no control whatsoever they don’t even care."
Cons: "Everything related to flight could have been better. I have flown Lufthansa multiple times in the past never had such drastic issues like this time. Completely disappointed. Should have booked Qatar instead."

Pros: "Amazing crew and service."
Cons: "Seat space extremely low for tall person."

Cons: "Lufthansa changed my flight last minute but was sending me updates for the old booking- it made no sense!!! Never again!"

Pros: "Entertainmet"
Cons: "Food and rounds for drinks"

Pros: "amazing"

Pros: "We landed safely. I like the A380."
Cons: "One crew member in particular looked very frazzled and was rushing to do everything. They also took away my suitcase which would have very easily fit in the overhead."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and efficient, even though there seem to be only two of them."
Cons: "Seats did not recline, and it is hard for those of us trying to sleep after connecting from a trans-Atlantic flight."

Cons: "Would prefer flying with partner United though. Think they offered a better service on board"

Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Cons: "NO MOVIES."

Pros: "Great staff. Impeccable service. Nice flight."

Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."
Cons: "You, Kayak, sold me economy tickets. When I checked in online I saw it for the first time that our tickets were Economy Light. So even though we are Frequent Flyers, we payed $220 for three checkin luggages. I intend to dispute this case."

Cons: "I din't like the fact that Lufhtansa company uses double standards for the countries where they have their flights. From USA, San Jose, Ca, to Frankfurt, Germany everything was good (flight on 08/31/2018 - 09/01/2018). They have been very profesional, beganing wih the boarding time untill the arrival in Frankfurt. The flight to Romania was a different story. They haven't been very professional at all. The flight had a delay and nobody said a word. It was just a clerck there who didn't tell to the Lufthansa passengers for a while anything about our delay. So, finally, he said after 15-20 minutes that our fligt will be later, 20 minutes, than the scheduled time on our tickets. They seemed do not care too much about the Romanian passengers."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "getting fine from DC to Munchen and Munchen to Bucharest, 7 h delayed but we get to Romania. - when waiting for the luggages, guess what? Both luggages are missing. -made the complainment, now we are waiting to show up in Romania and to be delivered at home. -went to pick up the rental car, because of the plane delay, they gave our car away. -after trying several companies, we found a car, 3 times more expensive, but we have a car....yeeyy"

Pros: "The food was pretty decent."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and do not recline. The plane was old. No entertainment. For the money look elsewhere."

Cons: "They cancelled the flight due to mechanical issues which was understandable. The problem was the chaos at Frankfurt airport because the instructions given to us to get to the Lufthansa service desk were totally inadequate.

Cons: "United airlines connection was quite bad. Was 15 min late but didn't really mind it"

Pros: "Everything was good."

Cons: "S7 asked for additional "fees" to cover flight expenses. They have charged extra for carry on luggage of 2,000 roubles. It was mentioned that it was international flight but they have refused to honor those rules. I have used the same bag on other airlines and did not have any problems."

Pros: "I fleweconomy. Flight on time. Boarding was quick. Food is so so bordering to poor. On the plus side the portion was small and is good when want to go on diet."

Pros: "The plane was parked away from the gate. We boarded the service bus to get there 20 minutes before departure time. But it took more than 20 minutes while mid way waiting for clearance to leave for the plane. The service bus did not turn on the AC while we waited even though we complained. We were suffocating. There was no entertainment on the plane."

Pros: "flight was on time and the crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Plane was"

Pros: "Very organized"

Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Everyone kind of ran up."

Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"

She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me.

Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"

Pros: "I liked the boarding, entertainment, and food."
Cons: "I did not like the cramped legroom. The airline got greedy and crammed too many rows of seats in the plane, cramping the legroom for all the economy passengers. Legroom in economy was MUCH better on the Japan Airlines plane (also a 777) that I was on from Los Angeles to Japan. Legroom is always important, but especially so on long trans oceanic flights. I am inclined to avoid American Airlines in the future because of that.qa"

Cons: "i tried to check in and it kept saying it could not find my reservation. once i got to the airport i had to wait in 3 different lines to find the right person to rebook my flight on the same flight. I think many other people had the same problem, so it seemed like an AA problem not a kayak problem."

Pros: "It was easy checking in and getting boarding pass online. OMG"
Cons: "OMG. Horrible experience. The 8:20 am flight didn't leave 'til noon. There were several changes. We were moved to different gates FIVE TIMES!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "We upgraded to business class so service was super attentive"
Cons: "Business class on AC was equal to premium economy on west jet but lwithout the amenities on west jet"

Pros: "The crew inside the plane was friendly pretty much the only thing good about the travelling"
Cons: "The seats were not confortable and old and no entertainment at all ! The food was horrible and the customer service from air Canada at Montreal airport was rude and unprofessional 3 hours delay without even an apology or an explanation! I went to see a person from a air canada at a desk at the boarding gates and he wouldn't even have the courtesy to give me 1 minute of his time to explain why the plane is late his awnser was wait for the announcement and you will see his attitude was very apathetic. Overall I was very disappointed"

Pros: "Thank goodness there was lots of room on this plane, makes it much nicer"
Cons: "Old plane, and business class is just ok. So sad that Air Canada is only flying this route with Rouge... they just are ok. Boarding was a gong show - they blocked off the area with little posts to keep people organized and were boarding a big flight to Tokyo right beside us. Horrible."

Pros: "Had to emergency reschedule the trip home due to a medical emergency in the family. Explained the situation and urgency to the AC client services rep. He got my wife and I on the next flight out (and first one in) from an alternate airport (Fort Myers instead of Tampa). They waived any rescheduling charges and billed flight differential charges of under $10 each. It was very much appreciated that in the middle of or crisis, we found a friendly and helpful response from an Airline that too often has received bad reviews. In my books, you folks are #1 when it counts. Thanks so much!"

Pros: "the over seas flight was fine... once we got on board"
Cons: "The desk does not open until two hours before your flight. Our flight was canceled, 10 minuets before boarding .... with no recourse we were booked on the next day. It took the airline 3 hours after the cancelation to get out luggage back. When we finally got out, the next day, our flight was delayed and we almost missed our connection. Every one who was trying to make the same connection said that every time they fly Air Canada they are always running. We needed up being the last ones on the plane.... they gave away our seats so we were separated for 12 hours. And shoved into corners!!! Our bags made it two days late."

Pros: "Even if I missed the connection, I was happy that a connection was automatically send to me and I did not have to worry about mu baggage or check out at Pearson."
Cons: "I reserved two tickets and out of the four planes with took only one we had seats next to each other so we couldn't carry out some business on the flights."

Pros: "I love this flight. Great airplane and great staff. Air Canada international >> air Canada domestic."

Pros: "Cleanliness and accessibility to my nearest airport at the time I need it."
Cons: "Children are crying through the flights."

Pros: "The service the upgrade.the fight excellent"
Cons: "Hard to say"

Cons: "Wifi didn’t work after I paid for it"

Pros: "The end of the trip and delivery of luggage 24 hours after arriving in Vienna"
Cons: "Old and partly broken plane, horrible food. 2 officials to immigrate hundreds of people at Brussels. Breakdown of luggage system in Brussels. No luggage at arrival in Vienna."

Cons: "They airline cancelled our return flight and booked us on another flight more than 2 hours later. We had an event to attend that night so we asked if they could book us on United so we wouldn't miss it. The agent outright lied and said there were no other United flights before then. As we were waiting for our flight, we heard the agents call the final call for a flight to Chicago. Truly disgusted with Air Canada - will never fly them again!"

Cons: "Air conditioning too cold. No screen for inflight entertainment Big gap between seat and window prevented resting head for sleep."

Pros: "The cree"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "the pilot did a great job. the crew was nice."
Cons: "It was interesting to me that the plane used for a 4 hour flight (this one) was smaller than a plane used for a 1hr flight. I was uncomfortable the entire time. this was a redeye flight, departing at midnight. the cabin lights stayed on for the first hour making it impossible to dose off. we were given a 'snack' of a disgusting chicken wrap slathered in mayo. it was inedible. oh, and accompanied by a large kitkat bar. I mean. Who came up with this combo? there were no screens, no in flight entertainment unless you wanted to run down your phone battery or rent an ipad for $10. I was truly disappointed."

Cons: "Crew was rude to me."

Pros: "I had an aisle seat"
Cons: "The plane sat on the runway in Denver for over an hour because they couldn't figure out their furling situation. Many people nearly missed connections because of this. The crew never let us get up to go to the bathroom on an international flight because of some small turbulence."

Cons: "They could have done the boarding different. There was a bit confusion about when to board."

Cons: "Screaming kids right behind me for 3 1/2 of the 4 hour flight"

Pros: "Service was on time & staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "On the flight back, we had to wait on the airplane for a good hour before we could disembark. But that was due to heavy traffic at the airport and not the fault of the airline."

Pros: "Great fast flight"

Pros: "Everything was perfect"

Cons: "Flight didn't take off on time Mediocore service Medicare food Air Canada wouldn't let me pick my Seat. I hate to phone a friend at the airline to select a seat."

Cons: "I didn't care about putting my own tags on my luggage or I had to put it on the conveyor. But when I get to my destination and no luggage to be found, I was pissed. The only thing I didn't do was put my luggage on the plane and when I did get it, the luggage was damaged. My luggage went from Kingston - Toronto - Barbados, back to Toronto with nothing wrong with the luggage. They cancelled the last flight to Kingston,so they put us in a hotel. But from Toronto back to Kingston was hell when we got to Kingston."

Pros: "The plane was nice and spacious. A CA agent stationed by customs helped about five of us get to the front of the line, so we'd make our next flight."
Cons: "1. After playing 20 questions at the check-in kiosk, it was unable to print our documents. 2. So we played 20 questions again and the second machine failed to check us in. 3. The flight was delayed about an hour (due to weather, not your fault), so our connection was tight. We alerted the agent at the gate (along with several others). She didn't help at all. She just told us to go to the gate. Well, we had to go through customs, so that wasn't helpful. What we were asking is if she could alert the gate agents at the next flight that we were running as fast as we could. 4. So five of us get to the next gate as they're paging us that the doors are closing. 5. Our bags didn't make the flight, which wasn't unexpected, but it was worrisome when the agent at our final destination told us she couldn't tell where they were."

Pros: "Pathetic service"

Pros: "Flights all deprt s and arrived on time which allowed us to make our connections. A bonus is the flight attendant was pleasant Air Canada Concierge was a real help this entire trip"
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive with us."

Pros: "In flight was good, standard expectations"
Cons: "I was put on stand by. Second time air Canada has done this. No reason. They need to be better organized."

Pros: "My company on the plane was lovely: an older Peruvian woman sharing her experiences in the country."
Cons: "The plane took off 40 minutes late because we were waiting on folks: Can this be a normal standard?! The food was difficult to stomach. But worst of all, the attendants were not kind or particularly helpful. They seemed hurried. At one point when offering drinks down the aisles, the 2 attendants even commented that they were going to beat the other cart down the aisle this time. Furthermore, there was a blind man near us across the aisle. I couldn't see much of what was going on, but the woman next to me seemed rather distraught that so little help was offered to him. When food was served, he couldn't find his cutlery and ate with his hands. When he needed to use the bathroom, he pressed the button for assistance but no one came. Others stepped in to help. When asked if someone would help the man at the gate, an attendant rather condescendingly answered that of course, every handicapped guest will be assisted through the airport. The flight primarily consisted of Peruvians. I can only hope this poor service was a reflection of all of Air Canada, and not what the people of Peru receive regularly. It was as if the attendants were trying to discipline. There were no niceties. Perhaps the language barrier was too much."

Pros: "We had two different tickets, one on ANA and the other for Air Canada. The young lady at checkin linked them, checked our bags through Tokyo to Toronto AND got us boarding passes all the way. Without that help we would have missed our connection in Tokyo. Thanks SO much to ANA."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "I felt the experience was quite disorganized - the boarding of the plane was all over the place so that people were boarding all at the same time rather than in their groups. There was NO entertainment unless you downloaded an app and we received no morning coffee because it came too late and plane was landing! No water was offered as I've experienced in previous flights (aside from the dinner time water) and had to pay for wine."

Pros: "The flight attendants were vey kind, and the landing was very smooth. It was an excellent flight."

Pros: "Tv screens were bigger and alot more newer than west jets."
Cons: "I always flew with west jet and herd people say good things about air canada. So I decided to try them out. I had a 4 hour flight and I did not like the seats.. they were not comfortable at all.. the padding felt very thin and could feel the plastic she'll of the seat.. it wasn't just that plane.. i had a return flight with 1 lay over. I would go back to flying west jet. They had the same size planes and way more comfortable seats."

Pros: "The service was good."
Cons: "The children screaming 70 percent of the flight. The person in front of me throwing up. Just very uncomfortable."

Cons: "They should have checked the plane before boarding. When the plane was ready to take off they discovered an issue with the lavatory. we had to sit in the plane for more than an hour to get this fixed."

Pros: "Crew was nice."

Pros: "The staff was so kind and outgoing! They made sure the flight went smoothly!"

Pros: "Flight was delayed several hours with no compensation given"

Cons: "Flight was delayed making me miss my connection. Poor customer service at the airport plus the fact that my baggage got lost however, it was delivered after 24 hours."

Pros: "There was a decent selection of in flight movies"
Cons: "-the aux plug for the headphones wasn't working properly. Resulting in me having to hold the headphones in place the entire flight -the first time the attendant went by with the food selections for purchase she walked right past me and went on to run out of food by the time I finally got her attention. -I had to ask the people behind me several times to please stop their child from kicking the back of my seat. Although the attendant made eye contact me one of the times she made no intervention on my behalf. - my return flight was in short: neglectful and arduous. I probably wouldn't recommend Air Canada after a flight like that."

Cons: "Did not like the idea that we had to pay for use of Ipad to watch shows , especially since I didnt have my own."

Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour with no updates. Luggage pick up was slow"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours."

Cons: "There's a strong reason why the Asian airlines have greater customer satisfaction. I flew Eva Air, Cathay Pacific and China Airlines before. Their flight attendants literally walk back and forth non-stop during most of the time in the air to serve the passengers. Their food are much better. Added benefit: their flight attendants are much younger and prettier!"

Cons: "Very poor communication and co-ordination when flight was delayed and then cancelled. Rebooking was only available via the phone, even when at the airport, with a 45 minute hold time. Everyone kept passing the buck to another, and no supervisors were around. Terrible customer service!"

Cons: "Delay after delay."

Pros: "Great food and they gave us blankets and even free wine with dinner! I was also able to watch to new movies!"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "i booked a flight through kayak going from denver to milan. i showed up at the airport in denver to fly out yeserday only to find out that i was going to frankfurt germany. i am now in munich germany and never made it to milan. i was one of many people i met on the flight that also booked with air canada thinking they were headed to milan. air canada kept trying to put the blame off to my booking company. i don't know who to be ticked off at. please advise."

Pros: "The crew was all wonderful, friendly and efficient."

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