Airline reviews

Pros: "Didn't try the food."
Cons: "Nothing out of the ordinary regarding the flight itself. The gate was changed twice, which was inconvenient. Not much leg room or no adjustable pillows on the seats."

Pros: "Nothing. It was awful. Worst flight in years."
Cons: "Airport,business lounge, boarding process-they didn't know what was going on, business class seats we're nobody size seats, awful food-was supposed to be a hot breakfast but it was dinner instead, no entertainment, no tv screens, said they had wifi but they didn't. Nothing good about the flight. Crew was more concerned about keeping their curtain pulled than anything else."

Pros: "The plane was clean, the temperature was fine during flight. They fed us dinner almost right after taking off. The staff was attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Almost was late for our flight, because it took us over 1 hour to pass the passport control at the Frankfurt airport. It was terribly organized and understaffed which caused other people to miss their flight. My husband and I ended up running to our gate like mad men and we were the last to board right before they closed the gate. Very stressful and frustrating!!! Other than that the flight was ok. We were surprised that we were served a dinner right after we took off, but the hot entree was bad, so we ended up asking the flight attendant bring us more bread so we filled up on that."

Pros: "The Lufthansa help desk fairly quickly resolved the ticket and boarding pass problems."
Cons: "That it was still necessary to use the help desk to get aboarding pass, although they were totally professional and resolved the issue."

Pros: "Ease of making connecting flight to Budapest"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and provided constant updates while the flight was delayed multiple times."
Cons: "It is not a good idea to serve dinner at 1am in the evening when people are falling asleep. It would have been a better idea to serve lunch vs dinner"

Pros: "Very friendly crew, smooth flight ( great pilots)"
Cons: "Food was carb heavy. I wish you would offer more protein and vegetable choices."

Pros: "The staff was professional all the way from check in to boarding to flight attendance ..."
Cons: "I liked everything .. everything was done professionally."

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"

Cons: "My check in bag was delayed by a day. Ground staff didn't even delivered it, had to pick it from airport after calling them several times Management and ground staff are rude"

Cons: "There was another delay of 80 minutes"

Pros: "the crew is still your best attribute"
Cons: "the seats were more uncomfortable on this shorter flight no entertainment options at all"

Cons: "Flight started 50 minutes late. I can't recall if there was any notification about status, cause, estimates etc prior to departure."

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."
Cons: "We got to board using the bus which is really annoying. The food was a bag of M&Ms. Sometimes they give you an Italian newspaper during this flight: not this time."

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: "Everything"

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: "Lovely sandwich"

Cons: "No food on board. Space between sits was very tight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Manipulating customers , clearly improfesional and pregedious"

Cons: "The Terminal C at Frankfurt airport is hideous and the boarding does not follow any groups and you see huge lines of people lined up way before boarding time."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "that the train took us to Cologne center and not the Cologne airport, where my car was parked"

Pros: "We booked Lufthansa that was substituated with Airbaltic."
Cons: "The airplain"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled."

Pros: "We arrived- they delivered our bags to our hotel a day later"
Cons: "Bags didn't make the connection and because there was only one LH flight a day to Malta we were without luggage our first 36 hours on the island."

Pros: "N/A - entertainment was not an option"
Cons: "N/A - entertainment was not an option"

Pros: "The crew, were very kind, professional and always smiling."
Cons: "The A321 aircraft was not interiorly designed for decent Business Class seating, as was our reservation. This contrasted dramatically with the Aircraft from Toronto to Frankfurt, which was truly Business Class Journey. One might call it Premium Economy but certainly NOT Business Class seats. The Ground crew before Boarding were a mess, no proper announcement, not keen to organise passengers, and just filling up the Bus as if filling a can with sardines! One Washroom, excessive long wait to get there, if at all, and despite the crew's help."

Pros: "They actually feed you good food and the crew's service is very fast. In-flight entertainment was wonderful."

Cons: "Carry on policy, little leg room"

Pros: "Fantastic staff: easy to talk to, professional, friendly and tends to your needs with a smile. Clean cabin and good leg room for economy."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Staff at Lufthansa were helpful"
Cons: "Air canada couldn't figure out how to print a boarding pass in Toronto for my connection from Frankfurt to Florence and were quite rude about it. In Frankfurt it turns out that air canada didn't even rebook my flight for the next connection."

Cons: "One of the stewardess was kind of rude in one ocassion. She asked me if I wanted something to drink and i did't hear well so I said excuesme and she responded back to me in a rude way. I did not like that and I believe that if you choose to work in an environment where you are going to be providing assistance to people you should have excellent people skills. Maybe she had a bad day (I dont know) but still there is no need to answer back in a rude way to a customer."

Pros: "Excellent customer service and great food as well"

Pros: "cleanliness, professionalism of crew"
Cons: "I bought the cheapest tickets, but with all taxes and charges included (including 1 peace baggage). It was clearly stated. Later, it was changed and LH charged me additionally for baggage! My opinion is that LH had software error in this process, because it was a new tariff. Anyhow I have documents which support my statement and I will make a complaint and require my money back."

Pros: "Lufthanza have changed its aircraft to an Airbus 320 with no real business class seats, avoid flying with them to Tel Aviv. Paying top money and flying 4 hours like an "Anchovy in a container "is a no no!"
Cons: "Lufthanza have changed its aircraft to an Airbus 320 with no real business class seats, avoid flying with them to Tel Aviv. Paying top money and flying 4 hours like an "Anchovy in a container "is a no no!"

Pros: "Great service for. 45 minute flight. Nice lunch and beverage service."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Flight went smoothly once we were onboard and departign the plane to the termianl went smoothly."
Cons: "Departed late and had to stand on a crowded bus for ten minutes before we were allowed to board the plane."

Cons: "Snack"

Pros: "The entertainment program was exceptional."
Cons: "The crew wasn't very friendly and gave the impression they were tired of their jobs. The afternoon 'snack' pizza disguised as a hot-pocket in a small box was served 40 minutes before landing. This snack wasn't enough and wa served far too late for a flight that lasted 11 hours."

Pros: "Excellent Service"
Cons: "More recent movies"

Pros: "Attendant was fun."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The chairs could be better in economy"

Pros: "Missed our connection flight. Time to close terminal to far away. Ran to gate closed as we got there."
Cons: "Spending night in Chicago O'hare airport where we rerouted."

Cons: "Damaged one baggage, and delayed arrival of other baggage for 2 days that forced me to cancel a following trip."

Cons: "On line booked ticket in wrong name and they would not change or refund"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Side seats suck"

Cons: "Extra food."

Cons: "May be legg more room, either I gain way or the seat are smaller. But I got home safe, so I will use you again."

Pros: "Great service from crew!"
Cons: "Satisfied all around..."

Pros: "Good overall service level of AA"
Cons: "USB-, and Audio plugs are misplaced in the AA Premium Economy seats. Acrobatic skills required to connect/disconnect devices"

Pros: "Not much to like. When do we get bicycle seats that require us to pedal the airplane?"
Cons: "Baggage showed up on the wrong carousel. Baggage staff very rude. Manager was perfect but no way to update the display when things get screwed up. I think they can afford more staff. Bags delivered the next day while some folks had to wait two days."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No wifi"

Cons: "They charged EUR 50 for the 1st bag of luggage on an international flight. I never heard this before."

Pros: "Entertainment was good, meals were served, flight was on time."

Cons: "Did not know that we did not fly with British Airlines (as I had printed out before my first flight to Germany) was replaced with American Airlines. I lost valuable time at the airport and almost missed the flight. Chaotic and unexpected baggage problems before boarding to Dallas: the board luggage, same as we had on the way over, was not accepted and had to be checked in. Problem since we had to move laptop, etc. before the actual boarding. Attendants not as professional as they should be. Also seats were changed -- I was not able to sit with my daughter who regularly gets travel sickness. Overall not a good experience. But the worst: changing airlines and not being informed!!!!"

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Tight seats, poor food, rude flight staff. Doesn’t anyone at American Airlines smile. Don’t they understand that we can choose to fly with an airline that has friendly crew"

Pros: "Great classical music selection, great entertainment program. Unfortunately, not working for all, system was re booted but didn't work for all but for me"
Cons: "The special meal I requested was not available"

Pros: "The person I sat next to was kind, as was the crew."
Cons: "The seats in economy are too close to the row in front and too narrow. You can barely move. Its claustrophobic, even for a person not prone to it. I had to upgrade my seat to avoid this as I was in those horrid seats on the trip over. Crew from the late arriving flight should have announced the connecting flight delay well before landing at DFW. The flight should have been held for 20 minutes, as it appeared that the majority of the passengers affected were able to clear customs and arrive at the gate in time."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seat width, height, pitch and aisle width were absolute minimum. Very uncomfortable !!!"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "The precision of bookings thru airlines were right on the spot.."
Cons: "The long lay over.."

Pros: "Most everything was great"
Cons: "When you have an isle seat, it is very difficult to sleep when you get bumped by the flight attendants every time they pass you. Understanding that there is limited space, just giving feedback"

Pros: "Extra coffee/tea available outside of the standard food times."

Pros: "The plane and crew were good."
Cons: "The adult movie selection was not interesting. I ended up watching a children's Disney movie that proved to be more entertaining. What caused my discomfort during the flight was not due to British Airways or American Airlines, but rather was a problem at the Frankfurt terminal. I could not take a bottle of water thru the security check and there was no water fountain after the security check. I have a lot of food sensitivities and cannot drink bottled water. It was only at the end of the flight when I was desperate for water that I discovered I could get some tap water from a flight attendant."

Pros: "Friendly service, smooth flight and quick boarding time."
Cons: "All good!"

Pros: "Plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "It’s just a long flight there’s no way to change that."

Pros: "Plane was lightly booked so plenty of room to sit and storage space."
Cons: "Plane left FRA 25 min late and occured more delay during flight. Came into DFW with 50 min delay and had to go through TSA again for connecting flight - why? So missed the connecting flight to LAX and had to get rebooked."

Pros: "price"
Cons: "seats should be priced based on passengers' weight."

Pros: "It’s the industry practice that the service level for 6 hours long flight is by the ‘domestic’ but it’s shaemful. No food or video screen !!!"

Pros: "Very punctual; courteous crew. Ver smooth ride"
Cons: "Nothing. It was excellent."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Breakfast"

Pros: "Awesome service"

Pros: "Like the 777-200. Not bad seating for coach."
Cons: "Delay and boarding in Germany we had to ride a bus out to the plane"

Cons: "We waited at the gate in Frankfurt once the plane was loaded for 40 minutes for the aircraft to get pushed back from the jetway . Waited another 25 minutes in Dallas for an operator to place the jetway to the aircraft. One of the stewardess we had was really rude."

Cons: "The electronic screen that shows movies etc. needs to be updated. Some of the functions did not work and those that did work were very difficult to get to work well. Disappointing. Obsolete technology."

Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work which affected 6 passengers, rows 34 and 35. Flight attendants kept saying there was nothing they could do. They didn't return to give us an update. We had to ask three times to different attendants."

Cons: "Our flight was about 50 minutes late in boarding. American should have announced why it was late and an approximate time"

Cons: "Frankfurt was rebooked by AA to PHL connecting to LGA. LGA leg was cancelled. They wanted us to take a flight to LGA the next day. We got ticketed to DCA connecting to LGA same day. Finally arrived home after 18 hours of travel. NOT HAPPY. We don't blame AA for weather cancellation but it was not an easy trip home."

Cons: "They had the wrong flight times which made my connection impossible so they had to book a later flight for my wife and I, Did not get the seats we paid for and initially did not have us even sitting together until we insisted."

Pros: "Staff was extremeley courtous, helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "Archiac entertainment system. The plane has not been upgraded for what seems like at least a couple of decades."

Pros: "Everything was new, lots of leg room, everyone was nice"
Cons: "The grill cheese didn't taste like grill cheese. It wasn't filling. Grill cheese, never again."

Pros: "Nothing: worst flight !"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Entertainment was awful due to very old screens and a central streaming system that would not allow me to watch the movies I want when I want them. The food was not tasty at all and they served really hard and frozen ice cream as snack which was an awful choice considering how cold the plane was."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice, food was adequate."
Cons: "Boarding, not their fault but I was selected for extra security! Took me to a separate area, made me take off my shoes, pulled out the insoles, emptied my bags....and then left everything out for me to rearrange."

Pros: "Thomas of the crew gave incredible service."
Cons: "Both to and from the seat didn't fully function and both ways the entertainment system broke down"

Cons: "Live Tv CNN did not work"

Cons: "I had reserved seats 31A and 15C for my flights 1561 and 6779, goinf Frankfurt to Dallas, and Dallas to San Jose. The charge for reserving seats was $182.03. Instead, I was put in mid-row seats 42D and 24E, on both flights. No notification or explanations from American Airlines or Kayak, and no refund...yet. Any comments?"

Pros: "Very smooth"
Cons: "I didn't not like anything."

Cons: "Everything perfect"

Cons: "Lufthansa missed my flight"

Pros: "The counter for UA was not attended. I had to make few calls and they managed to put me in the next flight via Chicago"
Cons: "Reality. Flights are sometimes delayed and bound to miss connection"

Cons: "It could have been better if my luggage didn’t go missing"

Pros: "Boarding process."
Cons: "Food is not great. Seats are not every comfortable for a 10 hour flight. Need better cushions."

Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Cons: "Departure on time"

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "No wifi or in flight entertainment."

Cons: "Was sick so couldn’t fly airline refused to help and let me change my flights"

Pros: "??"
Cons: "??"

Pros: "I was in premium plus and it was wonderful"

Pros: "They got us to destination almost on time."
Cons: "The seats on this 777 are inconvenient, the food was plain horrible, and the crew didn't care about anything. This is a third world airline experience."

Pros: "They gave out ice cream and plenty of snacks."
Cons: "I could not choose my seat"

Cons: "Poor service, cramped seats, screens small. Lufthansa does really well. This was a United flight and the difference was huge. United has no idea about service. Plus they changed our last leg without informing us that it was an hour and a half later. Then it was delayed. We left SF airport the time we were meant to be landing in SLC. That is a lot of extra time after a 11 hour flight. We were exhausted and not able to get home and sleep."

Cons: ":)"

Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."

Pros: "Departed and arrived on time, clear cabin announcements, attentive cabin crew"
Cons: "No entertainment options without paying for WiFi,"

Pros: "We left an hour late. The pilot made up 45 minutes."
Cons: "UA app didn't work. No entertainment. Left an hour late. Not enough space between seats to read! Really hurts yiur eyes to have book too close."

Pros: "We did not get to pick seats on this end of the flight and they had separated my husband and I. Another lady on the flight was separated from her two children. No back of the seat entertainment screens. They had Aisle screens and ran occasional movies which kept stalling and the sound would cut in and out. Boarding was a bit of a nightmare and took awhile which made up leave late however we did make up the time."

Cons: "The food was aweful."

Pros: "The guys in business class had it together! Wow! Totally felt like a special guest."

Pros: "The correct hour to arrive"
Cons: "I pay for a place with a large space for leg and this is not"

Cons: "Travelling with United Airlines company you have to know that you need to download the UA app before your flight otherwise you need to pay for the internet during the flight to download the app. Without this app any movie on your device wouldn't played."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Polaris class - the configuration felt like a military transport. The business class configuration was like a pig sty.... bad bad. Seats facing backward..... but the look was like a crowded economy with flat beds. Looked like a college dorm. I've sworn never to fly United ever. I'll pay $2000 extra to avoid legs where they are flying. Food - flushable. Don't offer vegetarian food if you can't prepare it. I'll carry some Taco Bell. Horrendous. Service excellent, courteous people and prompt attention."

Cons: "It never left"

Cons: "the crew, especially one sour faced woman,with long hair who was always occupied with her tablet, kept missing me when distributing refreshments. Very old movies offered for entertainment, my headphones didn't work. The smell of the breakfast rolls which had been heated up in their paper wrappers, literally made me nauseous and I had to throw up in the restroom. The take off was delayed causing me to miss my connection to SNA in Houston."

Cons: "The food was not satisfactory. Soon after take-off everyone received a skimpy packet of breadsticks. A while later a meal (lunch) was served. It was very good. Many hours later everyone received a packet of pretzels, etc. About an hour before arrival everyone received a sandwich in a plastic wrap. It was close to inedible. Beverage service was very good. However, the amount of food served was unacceptable. This seemed like a budget flight. Very different from the flight to Europe on a Lufthansa plane. This was on a United plane. Will make me think twice about flying to Europe on a United plane."

Pros: "We had an empty seat between us which made the trip much more comfortable. The dinner service was pretty tasty actually. Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Forcing people to use their own electronic devices rather than having in-seat entertainment is obnoxious. Insert typical complaint about tiny spaces on airplanes. The pre-landing snack sandwich was pretty nasty."

Pros: "Clean interiors"
Cons: "No thru checkin to destination Courtesy of crew a common theme Long transfer times between terminals in FRA"

Pros: "Loved the size of the seats in coach, and the entertainment consoles in the back of the seats. I didn't like that their were no power outlets."
Cons: "Crew was really rude and short tempered. This is the reason I try to avoid United. No power outlets. The wifi I paid for didn't work properly."

Cons: "2 hours delayed, no screens, narrow seats"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and a smooth flight."
Cons: "I did not realize that Luftansa was a United flight so it was very hard finding the correct terminal and gate at Frankfurt ."

Cons: "Food, seats, entertainment, crew. I did not like it at all, compare to Lufthansa."

Pros: "Crew handled situation in a professional way"
Cons: "No seat assignments- zoo at the boarding gate- traveling with kids in separate seats- flight delayed- 2 :30 hours boarded waiting for departure with limited cooling system- no individual entertainment system- arrival at 11 pm?- a nightmare!"

Pros: "El sistema de entretenimiento. Optimo"
Cons: "Nada"

Cons: "The plane showed its age, and the seating area was dirty. The inflight entertainment in economy plus did not work, neither did the power outlet or the inflight wifi, for which I paid. I normally fly business class for work: this economy plus experience was absolutely terrible."

Pros: "I was upgraded to Business Class when I requested to be upgraded after a two days delay in Jordan and Germany. This was my first Business class experience and I loved the extra care and attention provided by staff. Around the clock service and they knew my name. I was well taken care of."
Cons: "Loved everything. Lufthansa knew how to turn my disappointment after the two flight delays into complete satisfaction by the upgrade to Business class. Thanks."

Pros: "Roomy seat area, lots of entertainment options, crew was pretty good - one flight attendance a little sassy - but not sure if it was supposed to be funny. I thought it was - so I put it as a positive and she got it done and kept offering water."
Cons: "Boarding was the main issue. There was some kind of extra security feature where they wanted to check our boarding passes - which is fine! however, the way the boarding crew handled those operations was embarrassing. Basically no organization of the lines, and when it was time to board, they could not handle the organization of people that had already been checked security wise (and ready to board) - and people that weren't security checked. For instance, I had my boarding pass ready (had already been security checked) and was ready to board. But there was no indication as to which line to get into, so when I asked, I was demeaned - and told to go to "zone 3! You are boarding group 3!" There was no way to know where this was, and just before (when I was getting security checked on my boarding pass) the woman told me to "just stay in the line that I was in - because boarding would take place soon". There was no way to know which lines were zone 1, 2, 3, or still checking boarding passes for security reasons. Once my zone 3 line reached the point to get scanned to board, eventually people had also been in the wrong line and were ready to board, so 4 lines of people who were just as confused as I was, started to merge. This is going slowly of course, people in zone 1 (who thought they were in the zone 1 line but instead were still stuck in the boarding pass security line) were upset because zone 3 was boarding and they weren't - and this is while the staff is getting angry at people NOT boarding - because they are stuck in these other lines. It was quite disorganized and I think the staff could have handled the entire process better. Not sure if I ordered the wrong option but food could have used an upgrade."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled without any explanation. It took 4 hours to get bags to go to a hotel and several hours trying to rebook for next day"

Cons: "There were 2 ladies speaking Romanian. Being native Romanian speaker, I understood them and the way they talked to each other did not seem professional. Also I heard someone from the crew asking rude questions to some guy such as "- Do you have a gun in your bag right now?" (Heck, that guy was in transit, and he already passed 1 or more security check points before getting to that gate. And even if he has a gun, he would say NO, and your job is not to trust his words, but to check his bag instead...)."

Pros: "I like the service, food was great, even the sanwiches were warm and good, movie's selection was good."
Cons: "I was in a row of thee sits, the two sits next to me were occupied by two small children, and the mother sat on the next row, the children needed to be sited next to their mom, and I was forced to exchange my sit with her. The noise was unbearable with them being separated"

Pros: "Kind, Helpful crew"
Cons: "Aircraft, food, entertainment, delayed boarding"

Pros: "Covered the required distance in time"
Cons: "Need individual TV screens. No one came for "Call to attendent" button for 30mins. i canceled it . Just needed water. United and Lufthansa need to look at Singapore airlines. They operate very professionally."

Cons: "8 hour delay."

Cons: "landing was little jerky and food smell made me nauseated."

Cons: "They canceled my initial reservation, without contacting me, costing my time, aggravation, and the price of a very expensive international call in order to get a less desirable flight home."

Pros: "Need to think!"
Cons: "We had requested for Asian vegetarian for all the 3 family members. Only 2 were given Asian vegetarian during first half. For the second half, my daughter was given meat sandwich! We are vegetarians due to our religious beliefs and our request for Asian vegetarian meal was totally disregarded. At DC wheelchair was not available even after waiting for several minutes. The staff said she had called for wheelchair 4 times and asked us if we wanted to wait more or walk to the shuttle that was waiting. Since we didn't know how long it would take, we decided to walk to the shuttle. This was a United flight that Luftansa had tie up with and it has been very disappointing experience. I used to like Luftansa and have recommend it to my friends in the past. Even though my tickets were with Luftansa, the experience was nothing like before. I plan to share my experience with friends and family and probably think twice before purchasing tickets via Luftansa!"

Pros: "Nothin"
Cons: "No entertainment on a 11 hour flight. Old airplane, poor service"

Cons: "FRA- SFA was possibly the worst food I've had so far; (SFA - FRA by contrast had been really good) entertainment: movies kept pausing/getting 'stuck', such that one would miss, sometimes crucial, dialog in the film - very annoying! while collecting trash or offering snacks crew walked the aisle rather fast, and, more importantly, back to front (so that one couldn't see them coming), with the result that I had to either shout after them (while other passengers were sleeping) or get up and run after them..."

Pros: "On time, no problem flight. Seat next to mine was empty."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment was good... Kept me engaged... Crew were reasonable with their service"
Cons: "Food tasted horrible. I have travelled in multiple airlines in the past including British Airways, Emirates, South African, Delta and more. Food is by far inferior to any of the other airlines."
