Top 5 airlines serving from Frankfurt am Main to California
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was the best ever."
Cons: "Space is always an issue on super Kong flights, so any improvement for these 11 hour flights would be great. A place to stretch somewhere?"
Pros: "Airbus airplane with four seats in the center for our family, good movie selection."
Cons: "Check-in at Frankfurt Airport was hard, we were directed to kiosks that did not work properly and then finally found help at the family check-in counter. Food is very average. Had to take a bus for boarding the plane on an international flight."
Pros: "New international terminal in San Diego is very nice"
Cons: "Never made the flight because my first flight was delayed."
Pros: "Flight was on time, and smooth. Food was OK. Very efficient crew."
Cons: "Wheel chair accommodation in Frankfurt is poor, doable but not to the US standards. Lufthansa gate staff member took us to the wrong elevator, ended up outside security and had to go through security screening all over again, now late for flight and not early boarded. Was told she was only on the job for 2 weeks, I don't blame her for her incompetence I blame her management! Plane was loaded on the tarmac via a bus for a large international flight...no gate?? Seats in economy class are equivalent to those on a domestic flight, fairly uncomfortable on a 12hr flight. Many of the entertainment choices were not available, you can select it but all it plays is a short commercial."
Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "Food is not good. But you can't expect that with any airline today anymore. Entertainment system wasn't working at my seat."
Pros: "A lot of legroom and good food for an airplane! The inflight entertainment has games, shows, movies, and a cool map. Plus the crew was friendly. This economy flight felt like premium!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about!"
Pros: "Food, drink, viewing options on the personal monitor."
Cons: "The seats are terrible! Too small and way too close together!"
Cons: "It seems like my gluten free meal request did not go through. But I must admit it, It could also be my fault"

Pros: "Very comfortable and the flight crew were extremely friendly and helpful!"
Pros: "Friendly service, good food."
Cons: "A bit too cold."
Pros: "In this day of continuous service cutbacks Lufthansa has managed to keep amenities that make long flights bearable. The boarding was early and efficient. Meals were decent and plentiful. Hot hand wipes were provided. Hundreds of video entertainment options and fairly friendly English speaking flight attendants. I recommend paying the small upcharge to choose seats with extra legroom. totally worth it on the long haul"
Cons: "Be there early. They board early"
Pros: "Good service, good IFE, smooth, great cabin crew, no complaints."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "The forward economy cabin was too cold. When the passenger in front of me had his seatback all the way back, I could not get out of my seat, lean forward, nor see the entertainment screen or eat easily."
Pros: "The plane. The short flight."
Cons: "Boarding from the tarmac in FRA. Poor sandwich."
Pros: "Gluten free food was poor quality and tasteless. However the crew was very nice and helped us get additional snacks we could eat. Entertainment system choices were good, but system was very slow to respond and headphones were terrible. I would have used my own but did not have the adapter. Flight was on time and at one time got too hot from the sun outside. We sat next to a problem passenger that made the flight unpleasant. I can't blame the airline for that. Half way through the flight he was moved which was much better."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Limited space, other companies offer much better comfort for the same price"
Cons: "Flight was scheduled for 5pm, our connection was late but we mangers to run to our gate @ 4:45pm And it was to late- dors closed So I waved good bat to our plane - it was right there So instead of 1 hour layover it's 16 hours"
Pros: "The food, The service, the seets."
Pros: "Good crew members with big smiles on their faces."
Cons: "Boarding was just horrible. No order or control over the boarding process; total chaos"
Pros: "I like the professionalism of Lufthansa."
Cons: "After flight Lufthansa gyd-fra-ord on the trip to the US my leg was in severe pain. I could not figure it out until on my return trip I only flew in a Lufthansa plane from Fra-gyd. The seats are to low or the design had me sitting in a weird position which caused the pain. I did not experience this pain until I took this leg of the journey."
Pros: "The upper deck of the 747-8 is amazing!!! Quiet and comfortable!"
Cons: "Other airlines have a much better entertainment selection. It was still good, but definitely not "great" or "excellent""
Pros: "A380 is amazing plane. Sat top deck in back, had two seats on the side. Very Comfortable, plenty of room for bags (but not big bags) Service was great."
Cons: "I'm a little bit of a nervous flyer. I sat in the top deck in the back, very comfortable, but be warned the plane is much more turbulent in the top deck in the back."
Pros: "overall very good for a short haul flight gate area in Frankfurt - complimentary newspapers & coffee"
Cons: "The boarding process descended into anarchy for the Dublin portion of this flight. Staff had to check passports prior to boarding causing confusion amongst the European passengers. The need for this was poorly explained. Food on board was pretty poor."
Cons: "UNFORTUNATELY, WE DO NOT FEEL VALUED BY LUTHANSA. IT IS CLEAR THAT ONCE WE PAID FOR OUR TICKETS, WE BECAME JUST A NUMBER, AND NOT VALUED CUSTOMERS. WE SINCERELY HOPE AND EXPECT THAT OUR RETURN FLIGHTS BACK TO PHILADELPHIA, PA WILL BE FAR MORE COMFORTABLE AND STRESS-FREE. AS WE LOOK TO BOOK FUTURE TRAVEL PLANS, HOW WE WERE TREATED ON PAST TRIPS INFORMS OUR DECISIONS ON WHICH CARRIER WE SELECT OR RECOMMEND TO FRIENDS AND FELLOW TRAVELERS. THANK YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY TO VOICE OUR CONCERNS. MARIO AND MAE STEPHENS"
Pros: "One of the most terrible flights I have been on. I was seated by the window (albeit there was no window) in the first row of economy. It was very tight and frankly appeared as though this row was added as an afterthought. I was very disappointed. The food (breakfast) was also not good. Thankfully it was a short flight to Athens."
Pros: "The crew member Lena was fantastic, everything else was as well. Had restful sleep."
Cons: "Not all lounges have showers, had to go through security three times going back and forth between lounges."
Pros: "Indian Veg Food"
Cons: "Frankfurt airport was crowded. Doesn't even have a universal adapter"

Pros: "the crew is still your best attribute"

Pros: "I slept the whole time"
Pros: "Seats were more comfortable. Control your own airflow. More leg room!"
Pros: "The seats had more space than the long 11-hour flight."

Pros: "I liked the comfort level and the collection of movies."
Cons: "Had to wait more than an hour to get my meal. I had the assistance light on for more than 2 hours and no one would come to ask. Not sure why would they provide that at the first place!"
Cons: "The most disturbing thing was that there is a seperate security check for this flight (where they take all your liquids) and then indise there is nothing you can buy to drink. My kids arrived exhausted from an earlier flight and it took forever until I could buy them some water."
Pros: "Overall good flight. Great food and plane. Some of the crew member gave a feeling of taiered and not with so much welcoming."
Pros: "The flight was fast. Crew was good"
Cons: "Just some small biscuits to eat"
Pros: "The total experience is good .. specially crew."
Cons: "Airport direction is a it confusing."

Pros: "The crew was kind, the flight was on time and alll in all was just as expected."
Pros: "Nice crew"

Pros: "The crew. The punctuality."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "We were delayed about 40 minutes due to air traffic. It appears they knew that, and we could have waited in the air conditioned terminal, rather than on the plane. And, I could have informed my Niece I would be arriving late, but I had no Wifi."
Cons: "40 minutes waiting clearance for boarding and then for departure, for a flight 45 minutes in duration..."
Pros: "The hotel was nice although I was unable to sleep due to the delays all around concerning my connecting flight. I am thoroughly upset because I contacted the airlines 3 times in May to express my concern with the 30mins layover. And to no avail. My worst concerns are being played out now. It appears that their isn’t any concern from the airlines about this catastrophe impacting so many people. Shame on you."
Cons: "The connecting flight departed before the first flight landed. Then I was given the wrong information of gate departure by airport personnel. After running like crazy to find this gate for departure, the plane had already departed before we even landed. There wasn’t anyone around to help, and finally I found an airport worker who gave me the same incorrect information. She was as perplexed as was I. Finally, she directed me to the information booth where I was booked in a flight the next day. The food voucher was insufficient to cover dinner, i had to pay out of my pocket but I was frugal given the financial situation. The taxi service personnel were rude and it took a long time to taxi me to the hotel where I am unable to sleep because I have an early morning g departure. All in all, between the airport delays getting me to the hotel, lack of proper food and treatment by personnel, I am exhausted and lost sleep in the process."
Pros: "The crew was so friendly"
Pros: "No wifi or any entertainment. Flight delays and lost baggage!"
Cons: "No wifi or any entertainment. Flight delays and lost baggage!"
Pros: "Lufthansa crew very professional"
Cons: "More upgrade to be available"
Pros: "Staff and the service"
Cons: "Dinner was so bad"
Pros: "Food was good. Plane was good."
Cons: "Night flight should turn off light. Staff was not skillful and professional."
Cons: "Overhead space on plane was very limited."
Pros: "The wafer bar. Pilot had a good landing in high winds and snow."
Cons: "Nothing to complain."
Pros: "Overall it was a good trip and staff was helpful."
Pros: "The crew worked very hard to make sure we're comfortable. Water, snacks were provided often during flight."
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, business class seats that lay flat"
Cons: "Rang twice for attendants when I dropped my phone behind the seat. Instructed at beginning of flight to not attempt to retrieve an item behind the seat and to have an attendant helped. No one responded to me, so I got it myself. Wasn’t a big deal, but I don’t appreciate being soundly ignored"
Pros: "Fast, organized boarding, on time departure. Crew was courteous. Good food for airline food. I have only had positive experiences with this airline."
Pros: "Great service on board the plane."
Cons: "Difficulty getting to flight"
Pros: "We had a very tight connection but there was no problem. With only 30 minutes between arrival and departure our checked bags still made the flight."
Cons: "Poor announcements"
Pros: "Can you assist my wife and me in getting Star alliance frequent flyer miles for this trip? Thanks"
Pros: "The personal service, the meals and the accommodations - wonderful!"
Pros: "Crew only offered water once during the whole night flight. The entertainment programs regarding games was very restricted, both in terms of game offers as well as operation / handling"
Cons: "The airplane came late, delaying our trip. Despite that, the luggage would not come, and the claims office was ridiculous (despite of the destination being within 1 hour of drive from the airport, it took us 24 hours of our short vacation trip to deal with luggage). It seems that LH has these problems regularly, and they don't seem to care; I guess we'll have to try someone else to avoid suffering the same problem every time. The employees already knew the luggages are in a mess, and so were the claims. When taking LH, we have to accommodate luggage delay into our planning."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and very timely."
Cons: "Very little leg room."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly staff"
Cons: "GET AN AGREEMENT WITH GLOBAL ENTRY"
Pros: "Crew was courteous"
Cons: "No information on delay given until boarded."

Cons: "Somewhat expensive for Vienna - Brussels one way route."
Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "No pillows,only carb food"
Pros: "Hi there, the gate for the flight was changed at the last minute and I missed the connecting flight from Frankfurt to Vienna. I was told by staff that there would be a 300 Euro fee, plus the cost of the next flight. This broke my heart. why I wouldn't I simply be put on standby and get on the next flight? I ended up travelling by to Vienna by train, over the course of the next several days. I am a lone woman with a developmental disability, travelling to Europe for the first time. It was very disappointing to be treated this way. Thanks for reading."
Cons: "I should have been put on the next connecting flight, rather than turned away to fend for myself in a foreign city."
Pros: "Love the coordination"
Pros: "They had a yummy snack. And fresh veggies. With great coffee. And the host told us abou the history of a Vienna dessert."
Pros: "Whole process of checking in, security, and boarding was very easy."
Pros: "The seats on Austrian airline are very comfortable"
Cons: "Lufthansa lost my luggage for the first two days of my trip. It really hindered my ability to enjoy my first couple days of a fairly short trip to a new country"
Pros: "The staff from service center helped me to solve problem with my flight, it was short connection, around 35 minutes, and I missed my aircraft, but in the service center gave me ticket to the next flight, The problem was solved."
Cons: "Boarding in the first flight was late for 15 minutes, but may be it has some objective reasons."
Pros: "that everything was in order - alles in ordnung, without much fuss."
Cons: "the passenegers - too much farting"
Pros: "Boarding gate was fast to get into the aircraft, flight was on time. Staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Nothing negative"
Cons: "Austrian Air has really slipped in its food-product.. Lufthansa put out snacks (cookies etc; even small sandwiches to 'help yourself from' going from Atlanta to Frankfort which was nice). But not the case with Austrian The serving of it was fine. Restroom options are less than adequate too."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and quick"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Staff are pleasant and competent."
Pros: "Made it there safely."
Cons: "Not much space in the seats on the flight especially for 10 straight hours."
Pros: "Flight services were good. Staff friendly. food was good"
Cons: "boarding at Tel Aviv was terrible. Specifically a staff member name Michelle was unprofessional and did not care much about passengers who waited for hours at the Group line because there was no indication that it is a group line. No one from the airliner bothered to explain or advise the passengers who were waiting and after more tan hour waiting when they eventually got to the head of the line they were told to go and stand in other lines. This was insane Long waiting times confusion Flight was late hence almost missed connection"
Pros: "Easy online check-in and boarding pass access also linked to wallet."
Cons: "I was not aware of additional luggage charges when I booked my ticket. It would be helpful to have a warning about that and the fact that if you do not prepay online you are charged double. I also was not aware of the type of a ticket I booked, e.g. Economy light and what it meant for luggage fees."
Pros: "friendly, helpful crew"
Cons: "I paid a premium to book a direct flight (ages ago) and then had to rerouted last minute (same day) with no reason given other than "it's our fault". I inquired about paying to change destination city and or seat to a premium seat (for the 9+ hour flight) when I recvd the reservations for the new flights that were made at the airport around 8am for flights that left at around noon and 3pm. I was told no better seat(s) was available. However, a half hour before the flight was boarded several announcements were made regarding all the upgrades that were available. Liars annoy me."
Pros: "Nothing special - nice crew"
Cons: "Flight was canceled and I was rebooked to another airline. Terrible customer service too, polite and sorry, but only repeating their statements over and over again."
Pros: "best blanket in any business class. should be sold on line."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Boarding is a zoo. Boarding by row is faster."
Cons: "Only serving beef as meal in economy was not great. A choice would be better."
Cons: "frankfurt airport security is a nightmare"
Pros: "Good selection of movies and music. Food was mediocre."
Cons: "Our seat location was near the toilets in the middle of the plane. Seemed like an unusual high number of passengers constantly using the toilets throughout the flight which created long ques in the isle and very unpleasant smells. Would never select these seats again."
Cons: "I intensely disliked the 3 hour delay in Copenhagen!!! And that SAS offered the passengers in transit a meal voucher of only 50 danish Kronas, which was just enough to buy a tall Starbucks coffee drink but not enough to eat anything at the airport!"
Pros: "We rode economy. This was on par with other airlines. Plane was clean, Crew was good. On time. Actually seemed that the seats had a bit more room than the American Airlines planes."
Cons: "Cannot talk to a human. Check in was at a Luftansa kiosk. If an attendant at the Frankfurt airport had not showed us, there was no obvious way to guess how to check a bag or get a boarding pass. So if you do not speak German fluently, ask an attendant as soon as you get to the check in area, and save yourself some walking and time."
Pros: "Nothing really; this looked like the cheapest transatlantic airline that I have ever taken. Will try to avoid in the future."
Cons: "Limited selection of food, snacks, and drinks Limited selection of movies"
Pros: "Boarding on time"
Cons: "Unfriendly crew & awful food"
Pros: "This airline is punctual and the pilots are good."
Cons: "The service is minimal, you pay for any alcohol and the food is nothing to write home about."
Pros: "The only thing that saved the flight was a good crew and decent food."
Cons: "My husband uses a wheel chair and a delightful attendant wheeled him and about 20 other passengers to a very well equipped handicap area. There we all stayed until finally we demanded that we be taken to our flight which was supposed to leave in about 10 minutes. When we boarded the plane all the other passengers were already there and I was the last one on. All the overhead bins were taken and I had to put my carry-on under the seat which left me with almost no leg room. By the time we arrived in SFO my thighs and back hurt so much that I was worried maybe I would require medical attention. Which fortunately was not the case. It was luck that I had a bag that would actually fit under the seat."
Pros: "Crew, food"
Cons: "Boarding could have been smoother. Entertainment system could have a better selection of movies and tv programs"
Pros: "The crew on-board were polite and did a fairly decent job, with what they had to work with... It's a big long flight of 11+ hours, so tough to deal with so many people. An unexpected surprise was the nice selection of all types of movies to watch and kill time."
Cons: "300+ People on a plane will "radiate" heat, so the temperature inside the cabin after 6 hours was so hot that I was perspiring profusely. I even requested it be adjusted, which it seemed to be for a few minutes but then right back up to 27°C... it is too long of a flight to be that uncomfortable with no adjustments considered. I asked other passengers if they too were "uncomfortable" ALL said yes. This would have solved also in my opinion the screaming small children that were also obviously "irritated" A cooler cabin would have induced a "sleep" environment, none of which I was able to get. Sadly, based on this alone, I will not fly SAS again, unless Business Coach class or 1st Class. I was surprised that an additional Coca-Cola was charged for when some beverages were complimentary... puzzling."
Pros: "- Seats are fairly comfy (as much as one can hope for an economy seat) - Excellent meals. I'm impressed that I'm getting things like ganache and cold-pressed juice in airline snacks!"
Cons: "- Wish the entertainment/movie selection was better, or that the foreign films had subtitles,"
Cons: "The flight was more than one hour delayed."
Pros: "I was treated by the cew very, very badly. Food was terrible."
Pros: "Great flight, friendly crew, good food, entertainment was ok"
Cons: "Cramped with no storage, ticket was stand-by took some time to convert to boarding pass and get seating to enter the plane as one of the last people,"
Pros: "The service is nice, people are friendly, and good environment at airport!"
Cons: "The flight delayed too long...I was waiting total 8hrs in Copenhagen Airport! The first time I took SAS."
Pros: "Very friendly crew Intime departure and arrival"
Cons: "It was extremely cold in the plane (I was in row 32). Many passengers had the blue blanket wrapped around them even over their head"
Pros: "Delayed flight arrived nearly on time."
Cons: "- Boarding process chaotic. Boarding began 20minutes after the scheduled delayed-boarding time without any notice. Gate seating area at CPH was far too small - very stuffy and standing room only. - Aircraft on its last leg. Most of the A340's seats had broken cupholders. Restrooms were out of paper/soap with no attention from crew. Overhead personal lights were either burnt or malfunctioning. - Lunch meal was decent. pre-landing meal is the same as the snack... some sort of dry and non-appealing wrap. - Crew did not perform passenger safety-check before takeoff and landing (seat backs raised up and seat belts fastened)."
Cons: "Flight delayed too long, 2 hours. No snacks, only drinks."
Cons: "Due to a train mix-up, I arrived at the Frankfurt airport with only 53 minutes to get through security and board. Lufthansa would not let me through the process, even though I immediately told them about the problem. They not only refused to let me board, but also refused to reschedule me. I had to buy a whole new round-trip ticket at more than double the price in order to meet my family for our once-in-a-lifetime reuinion in Norway, but also make my existing connection for the return flight. It cost me an additional 999 Euros cash in the middle of my vacation because my Kayak ticket was not refundable."
Cons: "Flight late, plane not very clean food..."
Pros: "I am pleased we landed."
Cons: "entertainment system did not function properly. when it did, movie selection was terrible. very mediocre flight experience by mediocre, government funded airline that doesn't really need to compete for business."
Pros: "Boarding should be done like this on all airlines"
Pros: "Everything was very good. I enjoyed the flight very much. The staff was friendly, courteous and professional. The cleanliness was good."
Cons: "Mostly junk food"
Cons: "Noisy people in flight around. Attendant did not care to bring water when asked. Secret luggage fees of 70 EUR one way Never SAS again"
Pros: "I liked the movie quality and overall order of the stuff and the flight."
Cons: "Since when do I have to pay for wine? :( Also, too few movie choices."
Pros: "Very comfortable 11+ hr flight. I also had an empty seat next to me so maybe that helped? The food was great."
Cons: "I wish the landscape cameras worked the entire time!"
Pros: "Entertainment variety"
Cons: "You had to pay for drinks"
Pros: "Ground crew was very helpful and flight was comfortable."
Pros: "The pilots were excellent : smooth takeoff and landing. The plane seemed a bit shaky at times in the air; perhaps it was windy, although the skies were clear. Good food; good stewardesses. Entertainment had very good movie choices and games."
Cons: "The side lights never were turned off, so it was hard to go to sleep. On a long overseas flight, there should be some down time. It was dark outside part of the time, but never dark inside the plane. The leg room is also a bit cramped for tall people."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Crew members not friendly."
Pros: "The non stop to Copenhagen from San Francisco was excellent. We departed on time, arrived on time.The seats in coach were much more comfortable than other airlines. I will fly SAS again."
Cons: "I think if there were a few choices for the dinner service I would have been happy."
Pros: "The cabin is new and the crew is professional and nice"
Cons: "Food needs much improvement, it's the same menu as last year. They charge a fee for booking desired seats where they didn't have last year. Entertainment can have more recent movies."
Pros: "Good entertainment options on board. Helpful crew and good snacks."
Cons: "I didn't find an option to request special meal online. The only way was to call customer care which wasn't available at all times."
Pros: "Great experience overall except for one flight attendant for inbound flight to Copenhagen - his attitude was a bit too casual although he was friendly."
Cons: "wifi - never worked"
Cons: "the seats are very narrow, not comfortable movies are not good - either old or low rated movies"
Pros: "The dinner was great!"
Cons: "The variety of movies was more limited than I expected."
Pros: "The entertainment system is among the best of airlines."
Cons: "The Lufthansa representative in Frankfurt made me check one of my bags, when SAS clearly said I was allowed to have one carry-on and one personal item. This was not a Lufthansa flight, but the rude attendant insisted on enforcing Lufthansa rules on an SAS flight and refused to even allow me to voice an objection. I will not fly Lufthansa ever after this. SAS should have its own representatives who understand customer service at all gates."
Pros: "Easy upgrade to business"
Cons: "Breakfast. A bit strange to have cold salad with cous cous in the morning but perhaps it was meant as a combo lunch"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly, the seats were very comfortable, and the lunch was good. The movie selection was great!"
Cons: "I wished the dinner was a little more substantial. It felt more like a snack than a meal."
Pros: "Leaving on schedule and arriving 20 minutes early. The crew was very helpful to families with children."
Cons: "The air conditioner was blowing cold air on my head through the whole trip. No way to control it. Or stop it."
Pros: "I tried to check in a 30 lbs suitcase. There was no gate and they asked me to carry the check in plus my carry on down the steps to the airplane on the field. I had to refuse and then one of them carried the checkin down the steps."
Cons: "Not much. Bumpy flight. Lousy coffee."
Pros: "Sear had great leg room."
Cons: "No complaints at all, the pilot did a great job!"
Cons: "Reindeer sandwich? Come on really?"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "It's extremely difficult to catch the connecting flight to San Francisco in 45 minutes"
Cons: "Delay was ovet 4 hours."
Pros: "Flight on time. Meals and service were better than expected. Long international flight was smooth."
Cons: "The flight took off late, arrived late and we missed our connection to Salt Lake City. We had to change terminals and they were on the opposite side of the airport. Had to spend the night and have not yet started with Aer Lingus to get some satisfaction."
Cons: "The floor plan on Aer lingus website for seating was did not match the actual plane iwe were on so the legroom was not as good as what the website illustrated when we boarded."
Pros: "Nothing.....never made the flight....due to multiple flights delayed. My family and I had to be rerouted which caused us to miss our flight home from LAX."
Pros: "Food was hot"
Cons: "Seat were slightly uncomfortable"
Cons: "Online check in does not work, ever. Late boarding all 4 flights inconvenient access to boarding pass. Was required to stand in line for 30 minutes to get boarding pass for connection instead of getting boarding pass when I left. Also, no kiosk to get it myself. Just about missed my connection do to these delays. No one is in a hurry at this airline"
Cons: "There was a 2 hour delay which caused us to miss our connecting flight. When we got off the plane we were given vouchers for a later flight but were then “bumped” from that flight because the tickets weren’t booked correctly. Everyone from American Airlines went home and we were left stranded in a foreign airport to figure our own way to Dublin. Worst flight and customer service EVER!"
Pros: "Food and beverage service was was great with friendly crew"
Cons: "The plugin for the movies wasn't great with the sound."
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "Was hungry."
Pros: "Staff was always nice & helpful."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and arm rest doesn't fully fold back. The airplane wasn't cleaned up after the previous flight so there was a few wads of tissue paper around our seats."
Pros: "We did arrive early, and safely to our destination. Pilot was informative and efficient. Staff are hit or miss on friendliness and efficiency."
Cons: "Second flight with aer Lingus, second time my baggage has been lost. Phone operators are shockingly rude and unhelpful, and retrieving my luggage is an unnecessary pain. Hopefully this time will be less frustrating than the last one. I'll simply never understand what is so difficult about putting baggage on the flight it is meant to be on; there were at least twenty other people both times that had missing luggage. Food this time was pretty gross, but have never had an issue with it personally before."
Pros: "Kind, helpful staff"
Cons: "The entertainment was extremely slow. It stopped completely a couple times and had to be restated by the crew. Nor were there recharging plug ins."
Cons: "When I sat down at my seat, the entertainment screen froze. I kept telling the flight attendants to help me out and they kept resetting my screen but nothing happened. So they gave me a complimentary Wi-Fi card, but there was no service or wifi available. One flight attendant tried to help and said he would come back. 45 minutes later... he never came back! I pressed the call button to get the flight attendant's attention, and no one came for an hour and a half! They saw the light above my seat, but they just kept walking past me! I raised my hand to get their attention, but they ignored me and walked right past me! I appreciate the fact that they were trying everything they could do to help me out, but when they started ignoring me every time I asked them for help...that was just rude and my anxiety began to rise! Worst flight experience I have ever encountered."
Pros: "The on-screen entertainment as good and easy and free. It was great to get two hot meal services on such a long flight. Cabin was very clean. Captain was quite cordial and informative."
Cons: "On an almost 11 hour flight, we got very thirsty so an additional beverage service would have been nice. I must say that I was a bit taken aback by the fact that they get their crew to sell merchandise during the flight from their on-board catalog."
Pros: "Staff was very attentive and very friendly. The sour cream and chives pretzels were delicious and the ladies gave me a few more when I asked for them. pretty decent leg room."
Cons: "When boarding a flight it would be a good idea to board the plane in smaller sections instead of business class first and then all economy regardless of row. This would prevent 400+ people gathering around the gate crowding a busy walkway. Poor selection for movies and tv. One of our seats had no audio and the seat control center was inoperative so we couldn't even turn the reading light on. The audio quality and headphones were terrible on the seats that did work. Ok The seats were less comfortable than our British Airways flights on the way out. No alcoholic drinks were provided either like they were on the British Airways flight. We paid for a British Airways flight and were placed on a discount airline."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional throughout the flight."
Cons: "The airplane is an older model airplane. Everything rattled during even minor turbulences. The seats just weren't comfortable enough for a transatlantic flight. There was no leg room to be somewhat comfortable. Due to the age of the airplane, there also weren't any USB charging outlets for cell phones or tablets."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and old, the food horrible, cramped seats, dirty and non functioning bathrooms, stressed out and inattentive staff, poor coordination of seating families together (I was told my seat was given to a woman so she could sit with her adult daughter...I wasn't asked, just told), the flight was 1.5 hour delayed, my bag was lost because the incompetent staff member in Italy didn't give me a bording pass for the Dublin to LA flight (I'm still waiting over 24 hours later to find out what's happened to my luggage). Overall, this flight was a nightmare and a huge let down after flying to Rome on British Airways. I can't say enough about how wonderful that flight was..Aer Lingus was a big disappointment and a poor substitute for BA. Very unsatisfied customer!"
Cons: "Could not get the WiFi to work."
Pros: "The cabin was quite comfortable and we had all we needed from the get go, ear plug, TV, blanket, and pillow. We had good seating as there were only 2 seats on each wing. Even tough we couldn't reserve our seats, these were good."
Cons: "Why do those long distance air hostesses treat us as if we were a nuisance? Not a smile, rude; they had decided that those going to the US had to be bad people. Are they that political or just bad mannered????"
Cons: "Not polite and patient enough"
Pros: "Nothing! It is ridiculous that not even water is given on an almost two hour flight. We pay enough for the flight we should not have to buy water."
Cons: "The cost"
Pros: "Everything better than good. Movies great and great selection. Food and Beverage service better than good. Flight attendants were awesome. Seats very comfortable. Just really a great experience in flying. One of the best!!!"
Pros: "We left 30 minutes late, as seems to be the norm for Aer Lingus. Crew tried to accommodate special meal request but were confused how to deliver the tray to the assigned seat, despite us ringing the call button per request and the seat number on the meal tray. I dont fully know how this could be confusing."
Cons: "The flight was an icy 61°F. My wife apent most of the 11-hour flight wrapped in 3 blankets. When meals were served, it took at least an hour to clear the trash. Seat space is minimal, but becomes completely intolerable when the person in front reclines their seat. Knees get smashed and the tray table becomes nearly inaccessible. This is a torturous was to spend half a day in a middle seat. This airline still uses the old-fashioned two connector headphones hinting at the age of the airplane. At least the tray tables weren't smelling of vomit and visually dirty as on previous flight. Crew didnt miss an opportunity on either of our flight to charge us for every little luxury, like a snack or alcohol and were fast to hawk their goods for sale. Truly annoying."
Pros: "The crew seemed genuinely happy. They were fast and accommodating. The food was good and they kept the cabin dark so those that wanted to sleep could. Food service was timely and on point. We had 1 full meal and 1 snack. The snacks were, strangely, quite good."
Cons: "The entertainment was hard to hear. I think it is due to the old style 2-jack headphones. I suspect that the supplied headphones aren't the highest quality (they are free, for everyone, why would they be?). I forgot my adapter so I couldn't use my own headphones... oh well."
Pros: "Flights were smooth and on time. Boarding was fine. I could walk around. Restrooms were clean. The egg breakfast dish on flight from LAX to Dublin was yummy."
Cons: "The seats are too small. I'm 5'11 and had to have my legs in the aisle even though there was nothing under the seat in front of me. The sound system for movies and pilots was hard to understand - not clear. Aisles too narrow."
Cons: "Booked for British airways flight that was changed to aer lingus Food was terrible, had to pay for drinks and snacks, 1 meal within the first 2 hours on a 12 hour flight, then nothing after, no water unless you went to galley and asked for some. If I wanted aer lingus I would have booked with them, not nearly the same quality as British airways. I won't use them for long haul flights again"
Pros: "Not a single thing"
Cons: "British airways canceled our flight, gave no warning, no alternative ticket, flight, or any option in general. We had to book an entirely new flight and had a completely horrible two days of travel just to get back home."
Pros: "Same as previous flight."
Cons: "Plane is Dirty. Trash around seat floor and crumbs where remote is. No charging station on seats."
Pros: "They did a great job. Pillows and blankets were provided. We also got to have maps showing us where we were flying over and how long until we landed. Made the trip much easier. I've always appreciated the affordable flights Aer Lingus has offered travelers."
Pros: "Crew was great very attentive"
Cons: "My monitor kept restarting or would freeze"
Cons: "My movie monitor was not working and it was a 10 hour flight. Luckily, I switched seats with my son who was not interested in their entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic:) Food unfortunately not so good. Can person who order such m type of food try it actually first? TV system had issues so I had to switch places, likely flight was not full. Other passengers had issues with remote controls Plane needs some kind of checking (interior). Can you setup different TV programs/movies per route? I was flying to Dublin then back to LA, nothing much to watch :/ repetitive selection:/"
Cons: "TV selection Food"
Pros: "Not allowed to carry on 1 bag, and bag with valuable and expensive souvenirs. I thought 1 catry on was allowed."
Pros: "The choice Seats did not disappoint. Plenty of room to wiggle around. Food was ok."
Cons: "My seat was in a permanent slightly reclined position even though it's not because when the person behind me pulls himself up he would grab the back part. So it's probably broken. And so every time the crew member would check, she would say to keep my seat upright when it already is. It became annoying at some point. The touch screen did not work so you have to push several times to get the movie working."
Pros: "Very helpful and kind"
Pros: "Excellent service, friendly crew ."
Cons: "Nothing to do with airline or crew, didn't like crying children."
Pros: "I liked the crew - great team."
Cons: "nability to get seats ahead of time - sat in rear of aircraft - cramped. Seats were uncomfortable for this long flight. I would have liked ability to pay for upgrading seats for more room. In-seat entertainment was glitchy much of the flight."
Pros: "Crew was great - very nice and fun - food was better than average for airplane food."
Cons: "Plane was a bit dated. Seats were worn out and uncomfortable - entertainment system was slow and crashed a lot."
Pros: "Easy to book."
Cons: "Entertainment was outdated"
Pros: "The videos worked."
Cons: "Some of the flight crew. The arm rests don't go all the way up which makes it really hard when traveling with a toddler. This was the case on the short flight and the longer flight to LAX. Not a fan of the food. Most of the crew seemed preoccupied and grumpy."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment system was damaged on both flights. Seats were damaged on both flights. Flight to Dublin was significantly delayed. Food was poor and very salty. Not enough water was served."
Pros: "The price british"
Cons: "British airways booked us on aer lingus from Dublin to LAX. Worst international flight I've ever been on. The flight attendants were rude. There was trash laying all over the floor, only once did the flight crew pick up litter from customers on the 10 hour flight. My husbands entertainment unit would not work, after we paid $90 each for an 'upgrade'. Also, somehow British Airways didn't communicate I was Gluten free so I had no meals or snacks for the flight. I would not recommend using Aer Lingus even if BA books this leg as part of an overall travel."
Cons: "Couldn't check in for the second leg of the flight to the US, neither on-line nor at the departing airport, had to go to connections in Dublin. I flew to the US many times and this is the first time an airline IT system does not allow to check in for the US destination. The food was very mediocre. Inflight entertainment didn't work properly."
Pros: "They had a fast, steady check in. Friendly staff and ine of the smoothest take off and landings...I love Aer Lingus! I will look into purchasing all my future international flights with this airline."
Pros: "New with plenty of room"
Pros: "open seats were a blessing"
Cons: "food terrible, entertainment very poor for a 10 hour flight - old, boring movies, also the restrooms in the terminal at Dublin were really bad - terrible way to start a long flight"
Cons: "Long delay along with abysmal customer service--they forced an elderly woman in a wheelchair to climb mutliple flights of stairs without assistance, which caused her very evident pain."
Pros: "The movie selection was extensive and wonderful. I particularly liked the film Pele, about the Brazilian soccer player. I also watched Money Monster, and someone said later I should have watched the Wolf of Wall Street."
Cons: "It feels like one is on a slave ship packed in like sardines. I'm five foot four inches tall, and there was not even enough space for me! The person ahead of me was unable to push his seat back, thank goodness. Then, it costs money for any decent snack, the sour cream and onion pretzels were not doing it for me. And so expensive! I wound up paying $35 extra for food and two drinks, and then my the flight urged my six foot tall companion to pay extra for a seat with more legroom. And I thought, "Next time, I don't care if its 200 more, I'm paying for Lufthansa." I bet the snacks are good and a drink is free and they give space."
Cons: "The worse experience ever. I booked the flight and then they canceled it, i tried changing the dates but the website was giving me an error so i called them, after being on the phone for 2 hr some guy answered who seemed very tired and not thrilled working for LOT. Rood and not helpful, told me to try FB messenger and online changing again. Failed to get a voucher, refund or change the dates online, was still getting an error. on messenger they answered and told me i can get a voucher, i told them i don't want it and after that they stopped replying all together. good thing i got my money back by filing a dispute with my credit cart company."
Pros: "Crew. seat. Quality of flight"
Cons: "Just keep as is"
Pros: "Good food, good service and arrived before schedule."
Pros: "Plane was newer and the cabin crew were courteous."
Cons: "Gate people suck. I can’t even describe how rude and useless they were. There was a lot of them and none of them would have been better. I also was almost bitten by a large pit bull while waiting to board the plane."
Cons: "The loading was a mistake. We were bused out to the plane but they didn’t start until the planned 30 mins before departure and it took 90 mins so we left over an hour after we were scheduled. Landing so late that a number of people couldn’t make their connections"
Pros: "Comfortable plane, good entertainment and very good food."
Cons: "The plane departed over 2 hrs late and didn't make up any time during the long flight. Most of the other airlines flying long distances make up the time if the departure is delay."
Cons: "It would’ve helped to land at the airport for which we booked the ticket. Landing 2 hours away didn’t help and the airline did not provide any compensation"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "I had to switch seats due to recliner and tv remote did not work. Also, my baggage did not arrive on my flight. I had a 14 hour layover in Warsaw which was plenty of time to transfer onto plane. This also occurred on my flight to Germany."
Pros: "Generous service, excellent vegetarian meals (my special order), excellent telephone help prior to flight."
Cons: "Delayed boarding time with no information or updates provided, touch screen didn't work, bathrooms dirty toward end if flight."
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive in Los Angeles. Representatives not sympathetic. Luggage was delivered to my home the following day. I will probably not use this airline again."
Cons: "The food honestly could have been better for business class. And the first flight wasn't actually business class seats which was disappointing."
Pros: "Crew provided great service."
Cons: "Seat was not stable and moved when I moved. In the toilet the cover of toilet was falling down constantly. There was no Wifi (what is now quite ussual)"
Pros: "The crew was as if it didn’t exist and the seat was anything but comfortable."
Cons: "The seats could have some cushioning, they could have offered some water to passengers, they could have kept the boarding gates the same to save confusion and they could have honoured my choice of seating...what’s the point of giving me a choice when they are going to seat me wherever they please?"
Cons: "At least one free drink on international 2 hours flight would be fair."
Pros: "the crew was really amazing!"
Cons: "They keep the cabin too hot! I was uncomfortably warm for the entire 9hr flight. And there were no personal airvents to mitigate this problem."
Cons: "Boarding process was terrible, delayed for 3 hours and I have missed my other flight"
Pros: "DELAYED as always!!!"
Pros: "Overall it was a good flight"
Cons: "Some passengers arrive late 1 hour from transfer flight, but meantime plane crew started relocating existing passengers to different seats without checking if the seat is available, and that created chaos."
Cons: "Food and not enough entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was more than 3h late, it took time for the airline to accommodate with another flight to catch up with connection. They did after many customer complained, and adding to that, my checkin bag didn't make and they have no information on it's location. Still 24 hours later and no information a d i don't have clothes to change or stuff to shower. I had to buy few stuff and they said they won't payback anu other expenses, mean telling to just wait for my only lost bag."
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."
Pros: "Business Class on LOT Flight No. 21 from Warsaw to Los Angeles is excellent! The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a beautiful plane and the Business Class seats are very comfortable. The food was pretty good and the flight attendants were extremely nice!"
Cons: "There was a two and a half hour delay for technical problems for our flight from Warsaw to Los Angeles on Tuesday July 24, 2018. There had been a two-hour delay for my flight in from Warsaw to Moscow, also for technical problems, on Friday July 13, 2018. Obviously, LOT needs to insure its planes are safe, but it needs to do so sufficiently in advance of take-off so that its passengers are not inconvenienced by lengthy delays."
Cons: "Flights were very late, had to take different flights, arriving 5h later and too late for an appointment. Very disappointed."
Cons: "no seat assignment"
Pros: "Sparkling water"
Cons: "LOT lost my bag!!!"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "This is about as budget as you can get. Entertainment systems didn’t work, drinks were warm. Food was mediocre. Bathroom doors didn’t work, and the toilet seat wouldn’t stay up while using it! Yuck! Had to shuttle EVERYWHERE between flights, before and after. Crew was not attentive, and not so friendly either. Only good note was the young lady who checked our bags in Warsaw and helped get our seats together (after the airline messed the seat assignment up in the first place). Ugh. Worst airline I’ve been on."
Pros: "Good service good food ever think in the time"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hour because of harsh weather conditions. Everything is Okay I wasn't missed my connection flight that time, but perspective to wait for next fight at 1:00 am isn't very appealing."
Pros: "LOT is the best kept secret in airline industry. Friendly staff, on time, great new planes. Keep it up, stay with low prices and fly on!"
Pros: "Flight on time... arrived on time.... food was great...."
Cons: "Had to ask if I get some food too, because I was asleep and as I woke up everyone had food just not I. After 10 minutes I asked for some food. Also the personal could have gotten more times around to bring water. I had window seat and didn’t wanted to disturb my neighbors so I didn’t get up to ask for liquid but other passengers I saw getting up and getting their own drinks by the personal."
Pros: "In Frankfurt it went through Lufthansa and the extra suitcase costed me $40 more as I’ve been told on the LOT website. Paid €107 where the web page of lot said $75"
Cons: "After check in luggage I had to wait one hour to take care of the luggage price so I get my tickets. All this should have been do e before without going to different counter. Also I didn’t liked that I had to check in on the automated machine."
Pros: "With expectations set record low by flying United Airlines this was pleasantly neutral."
Cons: "Limited beverage choice"
Pros: "I can't give any review, because I cancelled my flight."
Pros: "The usual cramped travel but it was fine. Good movies"
Cons: "Somewhere Ipad disappeared from luggage we had checked."
Pros: "Price of tickiet"
Pros: "We didn't even really fly this route. Had to go to Hamburg then Frankfurt."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled. Employees lied to us about other flight information. Other passengers received food and water as a small compensation and we received nothing, even though our same flight was cancelled. They had to rebook us twice due to their mistake and no one even apologized. Barely made any effort into helping us from their own mistake."
Pros: "Great cabin crew, everything on time, love 787 Dreamliner on long flights. Good food"
Cons: "Slow and hectic boarding in Warsaw"
Pros: "the flight and service was decent"
Cons: "The check in process lacked. I unexpectedly had to check my bag, they charged me 70 Euro ($85) which required I go to two separate counters. One to check the bag and a second (upstairs) to pay. Both attendants lacked a sense of urgency. In fact, they acted like it was their job to go as slowly as possible. Even after I mentioned I was starting to feel stressed about the time. I overheard other attendants complaining about customers who check in late and expect them to move more quickly. I found their apathy offensive. To add insult to injury, they lost my bags. Having paid $85, which I think is outrageously and obscenely expensive, I'd at least expect my bag to be well taken care of. Sadly, it wasn't. The lost luggage counter was also apathetic, though I realize they are not LOT/Luftansa."
Pros: "Decent new airplane. Nothing else really stands out"
Cons: "Economy class is not as comfy as Turkish. Food is decent, not good. No free beer :'( Too few movies and some equipment doesn't function well"
Pros: "I was boarded very professionally. I have a heart condition that requires medication. I explained this to the gate agent to request assistance in boarding and they complied with my request."
Cons: "LOT is not an airline that impressed me in any way. When I flew from Los Angeles to Warsaw, my bag was weighed, and I was told it was over limit. This, in spite of the fact that I weighed this bag on a calibrated scale prior to entering the airport, and my luggage was 5 pounds BELOW the limit. This seemed a blatant attempt to gain additional money from me, because I know the bag was not overweight. The food selections were average at best. Leaving Warsaw traveling to Los Angeles, we left almost an hour past our original scheduled departure do to the need to obtain additional supplies. On my next trip to Europe, I will look for alternate flight providers."
Pros: "It was very pleasant flight"
Cons: "Crew atmosphere"
Cons: "Check in staff was unprofessional and extremely rude."
Pros: "I don't miss the connection. Hopefully plane was delayed"
Cons: "I don't no what to say.."
Pros: "I like everything, except toilets."
Cons: "Toilets were too dirty. Crew must clean them continuously during the fly. But they didn't. They was unhappy about this duty. When we landed there were toilet paper on the floor even outside the toilets."
