Boarding staff person was very rude
Had to push staff to get good flight due to cancellation and delays for staff shortage
Tiny plane Had to gate check bags, a problem since we were flying back from an international vacation
Boarding was so bad in Frankfurt to mumbai total chaos no directions no boarding order
My luggage is still in Chicago
I didn’t get on this flight due to a delay from Frankfurt
Cons: "Entertainment was mediocre food was poor and boarding process.can be better and faster."
Cons: "Three hours departure delay from Munich to SFO"
Pros: "The crew. The punctuality."
Cons: "The confort of the seats."
Pros: "The crew were nice and the service very good. The layover was short."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost so we had to go back to the airport the day after. In economy class the Last 3 central rows or even more, have no carryon storage. We were stuck with our carryons for over 7 hours during the flight Montreal Munich. This is the case if you fly their new A350-390."
Pros: "Baggage arrived with me. Upgraded to First Class because so many of those passengers got other flights the night before."
Cons: "Original 5 pm flight was cancelled because there was no Crew or plane, even though it’s a United hub. Though flight cancelled early, United could not get me home same day so provided hotel and meal. Next day flight scheduled 7:05 then 8 am, but even that time came and went without boarding. 15 hours delayed and no hurry getting the plane to depart at the stated time. Total lack of customer service and concern"
Pros: "Flight crew and airport crew very helpful"
Cons: "4 hrs delayed which delayed my whole trip over 6 hrs"
Cons: "I was told there was no meal included because of the fare I paid. I paid $1100.00. I have never experienced this, even on round trip cheaper flights and I fly to Europe every year."
Pros: "Loved the food, the comfort of the seat/plane and entertainment. Timing of meal service was perfect and overall seemed far less rushed and chaotic compared to emirates business class."
Cons: "Some staff were a bit hit and miss. Mostly nice but some were not. I was clearly having trouble getting my seat converted to its bed and 3 flight attendants walked passed me and didn’t help even though they noticed I was. A portion of leather covering under the tv where I feet went was hanging off when I boarded and but on with masking tape. Took the elegance away. It’s funny they use the old fit our A380 but such a long flight."
Pros: "The food and drink were the only two enjoyable moments of this flight."
Cons: "The crew in Cluj airport could not care less about getting the plane boarded and departed on time. For 20 minutes crew stood around in the airport talking to each other and using their cellphones. Finally the transport bus was loaded only to have the bus driver get out, and talk to another employee while simultaneously using his phone. No information was given for the delay and the plane was boarded at time of departure. This careless and unbothered attitude resulted in a missed connecting flight for my partner and I. We were completely unassisted by crew on the plane and ended up having to wait 24hours for our next flight home. Absolutely disgusted by the service provided from Cluj to Munich. I would seriously consider another airline before booking again with Lufthansa for this route."
Pros: "Lufthansa is always high quality"
Cons: "I dislike how one must stow the entertainment system so early before landing"
Pros: "I flew premium economy from Hong Kong to Frankfurt on the A340-600. The crew was excellent, attentive and friendly. They always have a great attitude and this has been consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The seat and meal were average for premium economy, but the crew more than made up for it."
Cons: "The seats were quite hard and lacking in padding in premium economy. The meal was average and nothing to bring home to."
Cons: "They skipped me when passing out the food. They probably thought that I was sleeping, but they didn’t stop to ask."
Cons: "Our flight from Tel Aviv on Lufthansa was 20 minutes late. We only had 40 minutes for our connection in Frankfort but made it to the gate 5 minutes early. The gate was closed 10 minutes early and they would not let us on. There were 17 of us, 10 of which were children. They would not let us on BUT we’re able to spend 30 extra minutes at the gate, not on the tarmac, to remove all of our luggge off the plane. It would of taken them less than 10 minutes to let us in the flight. I don’t even know what to say about the complete lack of any competence."
Pros: "Overall good service, only complain is the business class seats."
Cons: "business class seat would have been better"
Pros: "Such great personnel in the air - can't say enough how much I appreciated them."
Cons: "The airline as a whole, however, encourages you to book with them under the reasonable assumption that connecting flights with Lufthansa will be achievable. Now that I've seen Frankfurt, There was no way they could actually expect any of us to make our connecting flights. And they offer no compensation. When I did get another flight, it was terribly delayed. Talking in line with regular European travelers, they said they expect it. Also met several fliers at the service desk attempting to connect via entirely different routes, all having the same experience."
Pros: "Food was good. We were served well and often"
Cons: "Bumpy ride. Design of aircraft had all the restrooms clustered in the same spot leading to long queues forming. Headsets were of poor quality, couldn't hear the movie dialogue well at all."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean planes. Flight was on time. Free drink!"
Cons: "Check in with checked baggage required an agent. As with almost every flight in Europe, boarding was chaotic, not following zones, priority or people requiring assistance/gate agents did not enforce the boarding rules."
Cons: "The food. I don't eat many food and the wasn't much selection."
Pros: "Great customer service!"
Cons: "Sometimes temperature is too warm."
Pros: "The positive attitude of the crew members. Even though flight long they continued to smile. Very smooth flying and plane on time. Free drinks including alcohol."
Cons: "Cramped conditions."
Pros: "I like on time departure, fast boarding and fast disembarkation."
Cons: "Flight attendants passed only one time with water!"
Cons: "Problem, flight was from Munich to Moscow, got onto flight from Munich to Ankara, boarding staff didn't notice, still not in Moscow."
Pros: "The food (breakfast) was great. The plane was clean. The whole operation was very orderly."
Pros: "crew at the gate really excellent"
Cons: "usual plane handling at Frankfurt - bus to terminal, 60 mins is not enough to wait for bus 15 mins drive 10 then go through security and passport control then go from B to A leaving no time to catch a plane Lufthansa scheduling need to experience what they do to passengers"
Cons: "The kosher food was terrible!!!!"
Pros: "Lots of movies to choose from. Meal was great. I liked that the cabin crew gave us plenty of water & choice of fruit juices"
Cons: "All was great."
Pros: "My departure from Munich was late but overall I am satisfied with my flying experience with Lufthansa, great job."
Cons: "The flight to Frankfurt from San Francisco (operated by United Airlines) was pretty bad. The outlets for charging phones and computers were out of service in my row, the wifi was inoperative for the entire flight, the entertainment system seized up every 10-15 seconds. The accessories were entirely neglected. It was rather pathetic in that regard, and the food was gross."
Pros: "The staff on board had the same view on the "comfort" on board and told us, that even her husband tries to avoid Lufthansa if possible."
Cons: "Everything on board the economy class is on Ryanair level. It is nearly not possible for me (1,89 meters) to have a comfortable flight in these seats. We will try to avoid Lufthansa as often as possible in the future (I`ve had a senator level in earlier times and things changed massively!)"
Pros: "The crew were excellent, seats were comfortable, and the entertainment system had enough options to pass the time."
Cons: "The food was less than desirable."
Pros: "Lufthansa delivers always a great service. Good timing, schedule and service!"
Pros: "on time, many toilet rooms available. not too much noises from other passengers."
Cons: "Boarding system was quite chaotic and unclear. Food was horrible. Premium Economy Class seat was just similar to economy class. Sound system with provided earphones don't work well."
Cons: "Horrible experience"
Pros: "Great food, entertainment, comfort, and crew."
Cons: "Our layover was too short and going through customs, transferring our bag, then going through security again made us miss our connecting United flight."
Pros: "Service and crew excellent"
Cons: "Boarding took too long as automated boarding was defective."
Pros: "The crew on Lifthansa is fantastic!!!!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment system, but it was a short flight! There was also a confusing bus to the plane. It was poorly marked and there was a point where the doors where closed and the bus was out front, we were all pounding to get through the door, then the bus drove off, we thought the my left us. 5 minutes later another bus came. We were fine, but the group of 8 did panick and had an unnecessarily stressful experience. Simple communication could fix it!"
Pros: "Employees were polite, friendly, and very helpful!"
Pros: "If I could choose my seat"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and nice."
Cons: "Delayed three hours with no communication or compensation. Poor customer service"
Cons: "Person in front of me had seat reclined from take off to landing. Nobody checked. Nobody told him it had to be upright during takeoff and landing. I believe that is a safety issue. Isn’t that why the flight attendants are there?"
Pros: "Crew friendly and accommodating, even on short flight"
Cons: "Good - no complaints."
Cons: "horrible food and poor service and attitude of cabin crew"
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "Old aircraft, ok flight, on time"

Pros: "crew was pleasant"
Pros: "Flight was pleasant and all the crew members were courteous."
Pros: "Great pilot. Outstanding control over the plane. Arrived an hour and a half before originally forecasted three days prior."
Pros: "Flight was as expected, Nothing to report."
Cons: "Seat was fine and of course when the person in from recliner it was no longer fun. And that was on premium economy."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 35 minutes"
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Everything was as expected. 1 star on entertainment as there was none. Would have liked to have been able to get 3 seats together without extra charges."
Cons: "It was nice. And boarding was good too."
Cons: "the fly got delayed for more than 3 hours."
Cons: "There was just an announcement that the refreshments will be served shortly but there were no refreshments. Take off and landing was horrible. Flight was shaking way more than usual."
Pros: "It was easy to travel"
Cons: "Pre-booked Special meals were not catered to. Could have appreciated more friendly crew."
Cons: "Too many delays. Having to de-board after boarding."
Cons: "Plane was not board on time. Delayed taking off."
Pros: "The middle seat was empty I had an aisle seat. That was wonderful."
Cons: "No wifi screens for books or movies but I had my iPhone."
Pros: "Great staff."
Cons: "The hour delay due to maintenance and fueling."
Pros: "Why would a jet this size wobble all the way across the Atlantic! The pretzels were even stale, and they served a "pizza" that was a stale mini loaf with sauce and a little mozzarella. People were starving when breakfast was served. The thermostat fluctuated from horribly hot to freeing - for 14 hrs. The crew slammed things down on table trays, grumped, were giving harsh orders to patrons rather than gently directing them. These ladies do not enjoy their job. I am done with Delta. We were also an hour late taking off due to a door on a cargo hold not closing. I was embarrassed that our Aussie friends experienced this as their first American flight."
Cons: "Food, attitude of flight attendants, comfort of cabin. Pilot took charge of thermostat issue and kept us informed in a friendly manner regarding the status of our take off and flight progress."
Pros: "Used system wide upgrade to 1st class. Excellent service"
Cons: "bumpy ride"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding numbers"
Cons: "Seemed to be an unnecessary delay in departing a half hour late"
Cons: "They run out of food in Business Class. Service was the same as in coach."
Cons: "I nearly missed my flight because I did not have a seat for a flight that I bought a ticket for at full price. Which, would lead one to believe that I would have a seat on said flight. However, coming to the gate an hour before boarding the personnel working gate the said he was having computer difficulties and could not get me a seat and it would be 10 min. I continued to return till boarding to find out I had no seat and I was on standby. Upon going to customer service they replied the airline oversold tickets and every airline does this as if to make this practice ok. Well being in sales myself and if I were to sell x amount of product to one customer ( or several) I better make sure I have it all there to deliver. People rely on you schedule wise. It nearly shot a meeting I had to make in the foot. Very disappointed with the airline and the way things were handled."
Cons: "Forced to check my carry on. Took 30min for the bags to come out on the carousel. Which is why i never check my bag."
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Unmotivated crew, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "very friendly staff"
Pros: "Nothing to expect from Domestic fight."
Pros: "Plane was ancient"
Pros: "Entertainment, 110 plugins for devices, internet."
Cons: "only free meal option was cinnamon cookies."
Pros: "The ginger ale."
Cons: "This was my return trip with more delays due to maintenance issues of the aircraft. 10/17/16 flight 1585 was the outgoing flight delayed five hours on my departing trip. I waited at the baggage carousel 15 minutes for my bag after over an hour delay due to switching aircrafts. With a flight arriving this late in the evening with the low volume of bags checked (due to checked luggage charges), this should not be the case. Five minutes to gulp down ginger ale."
Pros: "All flights were on time Greatly enjoyed the trip"
Pros: "On time, arrived early."
Cons: "Seats too close in front of you."
Cons: "Again out of snacks and she skipped our row for drinks. Again small issues but what else are they doing?"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Plane was clean. Staff very professional."
Pros: "It took off on time and life was good."
Pros: "The plane has improved greatly with their comfort and leg space"
Cons: "With checking my luggage my bag fee was waived a total of seven times this trip because I'm a military wife to see my husband overseas who is serving a year in Saudi Arabi except this past time on October 2nd at DCA airport. Spoke with the Supervisor Ralph who stated it was against policy. How stringent is this policy if it was waived seven times previously? Policy needs to be reviewed with entire staff. I will no longer use American Airlines because their military convenience and policies no longer seem to favor the military. My husband also after speaking with him will also no longer use your airline including all his members he overseas when they return after their year tour."
Pros: "Almost 20 hours before regular flight time, received numerous texts from airline that flight will be delayed. Some were delays if 4,5 hours then changed to almost 8 hrs then back to 6 hours . Needless to say connection flight is messed up and no way of knowing what that might be until arriving at airport. Then more confusion, too almost an hour to get checked in. With connecting flight of 1.5 hours which is scary for international flight that requires going through custom then recheck luggage and TSA line again. The saving grace is captain speed up place on first leg of international flight so arrived airport 1 hour early, thus allowing enough time to connect."
Cons: "The Flight Attendant never gave me back my credit card."
Cons: "3 hour delay...and no voucher for the delay"
Pros: "I love the economy plus section. The additional space between rows is much appreciated. The planes are great and the entertainment system is very good. The crew is very nice. The whole experience was very good."
Cons: "More movies variety would be great."
Pros: "On time/early."
Cons: "Menu items in Polaris."
Pros: "The flight departed early and arrived early, good flight attendant service"
Cons: "Long wait on the cold jetbridge for our carryon baggage, tight quarters on the plane"
Pros: "I had absolutely no complaints about this trip"
Cons: "Custom agents were rude."
Pros: "Flight attendant was friendly and plane ride was smooth."
Cons: "Flight got delayed twice (3+hours total) then we had to wait another 40 minutes for the plane to get there, deplane, and get cleaned up and restocked."
Cons: "Power at the seat was not working; bags took almost an hour to arrive at EWR"
Pros: "The flight was listed as a 50 minute flight. The boarding was great, and very fast and efficient, but there was news that Air Force One was scheduled to land at our destination, so the flight left a bit early. Upon reaching altitude, the plane made record time. 50 minutes was cut down to under 30 from take-off to landing. The attendant was barely on the last row (a charter plane) from serving drinks, before the cart had to be put away for landing."
Cons: "The seats were tiny and my neighbor and I were both a bit taller and stockier than perhaps an average passenger (220lbs)."
Pros: "Great movie choices. Seats were ok. The flight crew were very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "I do not know why there is an extra check right before boarding, but my husband ended up leaving a bag on the table and since there is no orderly fashion and people are standing everywhere, we didn't notice. No one came after us to inform us we had left a bag. We had over $100 worth of souvenirs in it that are now just gone. Flight was delayed leaving and landing which meant we missed our connecting flight. Food was ok but nothing special. They only offer you snacks once."
Cons: "This plane was awful. I don't know how anyone who is not miniature sized could be comfortable on this plane. I am 6' 1" and ~ 200 lbs, not huge by any means, but not tiny. I legitimately could not stand up (so I had to sort of slouch walk down the aisle to find my seat at the back of the plane), then the seats themselves were so narrow that I ached terribly when seated in any position for more than acouple of minutes."
Pros: "Nothing, absolutely nothing."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty much what I've come to expect on U.S. airlines--overweight, older, and sloppy in appearance. One of them looked like she had rolled out of bed ten minutes before arriving at the gate. It was the complete antithesis to the flight attendants on Hong Kong Airlines. Ah, for the good old days of air travel. Before the plane ever took off it was announced the the entertainment system on the seat back ahead of those in comfort seats was not working and wouldn't be for the duration of the flight. Having paid an additional $239 for the comfort seat in the hopes of making a 16-hour flight go by a bit faster, this was unconscionable. The food was far inferior to Hong Kong Airlines. In short, it was the trip from hell."
Pros: "From check in at IAH to a 15 min early arrival everything ran smoothly and on time. Pleasant trip."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for over 2 hours and nobody from United told us it is delayed and for how long etc. Customer service not very helpful"
Pros: "The trip experience was very nice. Although we left later than before we made up time in the air and was able to arrive ahead of schedule. The crew was one person but was very courteous and professional."
Pros: "The food choices were good and the service was excellent, Always kind and responsive to my needs and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding could be done by letting people with window seats being seated first, then the middle seats next and finally aisle seats last! That way people would not have to get up from their seats after they have been sitting down to get back up to allow the people in the inner seat to get to their seats a pond boarding the plane after the people in the aisle seat are already sitting!"
Pros: "That the flight was earlier then Expected"
Cons: "Bag fee"
Cons: "Gave me the wrong seats"
Pros: "It was what I expected, a long flight in economy. Nothing special -nothing terrible. Check in went smoothly."
Cons: "One restroom was inoperative, so there were long waits to use the restroom. For long flights, it would be nice if all restrooms were available."
Pros: "Nothing to like when an agent tells you that 8 seats open on plane .but already full!"
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "We got my wife on a plane home in under four hours."
Cons: "United decided to bump some of their glorified bus drivers ahead of me on standby so I had to wait a full four hours in O'Hare listening to some doichebag from LA try to entertain folks at the Goose Island bar with his stories about selling franchises."
Pros: "It was fast & we didn't die we're the only good things"
Cons: "The Flight attendant was rude and mean , the plane was small and old .. But most of all he flight attendant ruined the flight for everyone. I even heard people saying she was mean as they were getting off the flight. I think her career as a flight attendant has ran its course (she was pretty old also)"
Pros: "Good staff"
Cons: "Nonpersonal tv"
Pros: "Flight was delayed..boarding for St Louis was one of the worse flights I have ever seen..crew was rude..asked for a juice and she was mad because I didn't finish it..very uncomfortable flight..small plane."
Cons: "Got home"
Pros: "I like the crews in the plane"
Cons: "But I didn't really like the food and plane was shaking that gave me nauseas and made me throw up a few times"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "No room on board for carry on luggage and when gate checking luggage it resulted in further delaying me to make my connecting flight"
Pros: "I really liked that the flight attendants came through to offer drinks and pick up trash several times and not just once, even after the turbulence that we had. I really liked the alternative wafers instead of the traditional trail mix or peanuts."
Cons: "I have no complaints with my flight, but I would sincerely appreciate if United offered some kind of neck pillow or a thin rolled up blanket for extra comfort on longer flights (5+ hours). These minor comforts are forgotten when packing my own bags when worrying about everything else."
Cons: "It's 2.5 hours past our scheduled departure time and we're still sitting at the gate"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. The special meal requested was not good."
Pros: "Still not in stl"
Cons: "Still not in stl"
Pros: "United really could have done better informing us of delay, then cancellation. I knew it was likely to be delayed due to weather, and kept checking the status. It wasn't listed as delayed until nearly boarding time, although it seems pretty clear they knew well before that. But SFO was a star. The new decor is sophisticated and comfortable. Bathrooms were like at a swanky night club! Comfy chairs and charging outlets every where. The biggest hit was the Exploratorium installation, which kept my and plenty of other kids entertained!"
Cons: "Wayfinding signage from BART is confusing. BART connection is a pain. The machines in the station only take $1 and $5 bills-- no 20s or credit cards! And no one at BART cares if you are running late for a flight."
Pros: "The plane was unboarded due to mechanical problem but a new plane was found and within an hour we were back on board. Appreciate the quick turnaround."
Pros: "Nothing. It's just ok."
Cons: "Nothing, just ok."
Cons: "Totally antiquated 747 aircraft which belongs to the museum. Still showed movies on the screens instead of individual monitors at the seat. No wifi and United app did not work. Terrible entertainment."
Cons: "Girl at gate was rude!!! After missing connecting because of Uniteds negligence, my brand new luggage first time used, zipper to main compartment was ripped half way out!! My clothes and stuff hanging out as its coming out baggage claim!!!!!! This was a nightmare"
Pros: "Food was better than ever and crew was very good. Usually mid flight meal which is wonton soup is luke warm. For the first time it was hot and got hot chili delivered separately. It was actually good. Breakfast also better than usual."
Cons: "The snacks are too small."
Cons: "STINGY DRINK SERVINGS TINY SNACK BAGS"
Pros: "2 hours delay. Seems a trend with United domestic flights (technical problems, not the weather issues). United should review flight schedule to consider the delay so the passengers don't have to be a victim of those delays."
Cons: "Delay!! After traveling 20+ hours internationally, 2 hours delay on the last leg really is a big burden."
Pros: "I liked the fact that they were able to find another aircraft for us to travel to Dulles"
Cons: "I didnt like the fact my flight was delayed all that time and i wasnt compensated for it. Airlines charge customers to change their flight all the time. And if you miss boarding you have to wait and be accomadated accordingly. I would like to be compensated for the time that i had to wait because i booked an earlier flight so i could make it back to my destination for other plans"
Cons: "Flight got camcelled made me late to duty station"
Pros: "newer plane. more personal space per seat"
Pros: "crew members."
Cons: "got delay."
Cons: "Our flight got canceled due to airport issues at our destination. United canceled the flight but had no alternative flights to get us home. Flights the next day were full. Took over an hour with the service desk to reroute tickets to cancel them and to get bags back then took two hours at baggage claim to get the bags back. Customer service was basically useless. After all that, we didn't get any of our money back! I will be avoiding United airlines. Flight cancelation was not their fault but the way they handled the rest of it was embarrassing."
Pros: "The amenities are fabulous. The flight was very comfortable."
Pros: "Same as above. Did notice the woman staffing the counter at boarding having extreme patience with people's problems and non problems. She was great and deserves a raise. Denver gate B 85 between 1:00 and 3:00 6/15/16."
Pros: "I liked that they waited for me because my flight was late getting in to San Francisco."
Cons: "The service. The flight attendants were rude"
