Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Better boarding and entertainment"
Pros: "Great food. Nice staff."
Cons: "Make a rule that people cannot put their seats back. People in front of us were rude and kept their seats back the entire flight, even after we nicely asked them to not have the seats back so far. Would prefer that seats did not move at all. I would never recline my seat in consideration for the person behind me. On an 11 hour flight, this is a big deal."
Pros: "I was amazed how comfortable we were in economy. Pillows, Blankets that felt like cotton. I would fly Lufthansa over an american carrier any day. We passed through the business class cabin on the way out and I can only imagine how much they were pampered!"
Cons: "Since flying in the US has become expensive and painful I was not expecting much from this flight. They exceed my expectations by so much that I cannot think of anything I would change. (Ok, my chicken was a bit over cooked but that was such a minor thing.)"
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Seat, entertainment, food, plane"
Cons: "Crew attitude"

Cons: "I got what I expected"
Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was excellent, seating just OK."
Cons: "I got to the gate 30 minutes before departure but they already gave my ticket to someone else. All this despite me coming from a connecting flight and having had checked in 24 hours in advance. Eventually I got my ticket back when someone else didn’t show up."
Pros: "The crew was efficient. They seemed to care about the passengers' comfort. Also, even though the flight left late, they made up the time while in the air. They are the reason with I gave the excellent rating, despite some other misgivings."
Cons: "Lufthansa food service seems to have been deteriorated somewhat over the recent past. Especially the snack before landing seems laden with mayo (plain bread might have been better!)."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "More leg room."
Pros: "Seating was good"
Cons: "Got a seat in the middle - was pretty annoyed with this."
Pros: "I received a message that flight was cancelled at time of check in On my trip to Munich from Larnaka my flight was delayed and lost my flight to Dusseldorf So this trip was very bad thanks to I received a message that flight was cancelled at time of check in On my trip to Munich from Larnaka my flight was delayed and lost my flight to Dusseldorf So this trip was very bad thanks to Lufthansa"
Cons: "I received a message that flight was cancelled at time of check in On my trip to Munich from Larnaka my flight was delayed and lost my flight to Dusseldorf So this trip was very bad thanks to Lufthansa"
Pros: "Food excellent. Cabin crew friendly and professional. Also very attentive."
Cons: "Cabin got warm at the end of flight. And because I am usually cold, I can only imagine how warm others felt"
Pros: "The serviice was very good enjoyed traveling with this company."
Cons: "The tv screen was outdated and difficult to use. The headphones were very outdated and did not like that there was no option to use my own headphones because of the aux option not availble."
Pros: "The Lufthansa service in rebooking."
Cons: "Lost bag- this was after my luggage tag was scanned and I was assured the bag was on the plane. Getting information from Lufthansa about bag status was impossible. Help phones were either busy or never answered. A black hole of no information until the bag arrived 30 hours later. Then a 45 min. At airport to get it back."
Pros: "Air Canada is a great airline too"
Pros: "I always had a great experience with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Crew was alright"
Cons: "Frankfurt Airport unfriendly and depressed as usual."
Cons: "Delay of 45 minutes made me almost miss my connecting flight."
Cons: "I hated that the plane did not wait for me as I have been on plenty of airlines that have waited 5-10 mins to allow for these sort of things to be rectified. thankfully, Lufthansa and United booked me on a plane that left 5 hours later. they even bought me a 10 euro lunch. :), a pass to the , Luftanhsa lounge would have also been a good showing. I asked about this , but was gently denied. the help desk was gracious, which I appreciated. I had an entire row to myself on the United flight to DC, which softened the blow as well but the flight to Munich from IAD was great (2-28-18)"
Cons: "Could have more options for entrainment"
Cons: "Over 30 minute delay for an hour flight! Frustrating."
Cons: "My luggage didn’t arrived in Santiago And it was so frustrating start my vacation Here without medicines, winter clothes, Phones cables and chargers etc et I would like to know When I can have my suitcases"
Pros: "I usually love flying Lufthansa - my favourite by far. It usually out-classes emirates in the economy class, and they usually appreciate the destination (in this case, Saudi Arabia - serving beer and other alcohol regularly). This time, on LH 598, they were suboptimal. The service was OK but I felt judged for asking for beer throughout the flight. The food was bland and the speed of service was “ok” at best. There were some good things - Warsteiner is an amazing beverage. When the attendents did approach, they were generally nice. Additionally, the entertainment package was reasonably good. I usually have to decide between emirates, QA, and Lufthansa. I would still say Lufthansa, but a note to them: please don’t let it slip. You’re a solid carrier and you have great service."
Cons: "-speed of service -feeling judged for having beers -one rude flight attendant -suboptimal food"
Cons: "My bag did not make the connection. Had to make a claim and was told it would be on the next flight arriving at 12:30 PM. I did not receive it until 10:00 PM at our lodging."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "no entertainment, cramped seats"
Cons: "Munich airport should be improved far more. it took more than 20 mins to find a toilette. they should install more toilette for the travellers."
Pros: "Crew was very courteous and efficient"
Cons: "Seats were too small. I noticed my neighbor was a fat big woman and she was occupying part of my seat and arm rests so I couldn't move because she was almost on top of me. It was a very unconfortable journey."
Cons: "Took a few time to ask for my kosher food. Crew couldn't locate me on the list, than told me they were out of kosher food, gave me cold one at the end."
Cons: "Not well organized and food is unhealthy"
Pros: "I think this airline is a very good airline, but this flight was shorter so it didn't have all of the perks of the longer ones that it usually has."
Cons: "In Lisbon we had to be bused out to the airplane to board, so it was a long process."
Pros: "Food is worse"
Cons: "Too crowded"
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "The perfect assistance. We are very grateful, many thanks to the man who helped us in all we needed."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Smooth flight. Good entertainment. Very pleasant."
Cons: "Flight attendant complained about a passanger right in fron of her in a different language. I understand both languages. Completely unprofessional."
Cons: "Smelly plane,uncomfortable chairs, AC didn't work properly (hence the smell).No screens, spotty Internet."
Pros: "Nice airport"
Cons: "Too cramped. Pay for all food and drinks. Cheesy! Sad!!"
Pros: "Drinks and food quality acceptable Well on time Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats comfort could have been better"
Pros: "Good quality: crew, equipment, customer service"
Cons: "Frankfurt airport: Had to walk for an hour to get from gate to gate. I was getting off an international flight and onto another international flight. International gates are usually closer than that. On the flight: 1. The armrests pull up, which is great if you're traveling with family or a significant other. But, in my case, it was an overweight and obese lady, who didn't fit in her seat and just slipped into half of mine. I was stuck with half a seat with her arm bumping mine for a 12-hour flight. I landed with a bruised arm. It was a round trip flight. When I had submitted a complaint, Lufthansa refunded me a 100$, which is nice of them, but I think they should have upgraded me for my return flight instead to make up for the first flight being uncomfortable. 2. I paid for the internet service and was charged double for it. Again, had to submit a complaint and was refunded the money. Check-in: The online system wouldn't allow me to check in online because my passport wasn't biometric."
Cons: "The special menus items do not cater to people who have peanut and tree nut allergies. i was only able to eat pretzels and drink coca cola."
Pros: "On time, helpful crew, clean"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Cons: "It turned around and we were stuck in Frankfurt for the night."
Pros: "Food, movie selection, comfort, speed of flight much better than Air Canada on the way over. Didn't lose any luggage."
Cons: "Had a little trouble getting everything set with the luggage and boarding pass. One lady wasn't very helpful but a male employee came along and straightened everything out."
Pros: "Lufthansa service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Delays, no economy plus option"
Cons: "Small plain and food was very bad"
Pros: "Lufthansa is one of few airlines in Europe with pure class and excellent service. Even in economy!"
Pros: "Entertainment center was nice ."
Cons: "Didn't get the seat I booked / didn't get the food I ordered 2 weeks in advance ."
Pros: "Quick flight. Friendly cabin crew."
Pros: "Fast boarding, early arrival"
Cons: "If I weren't super hungover"
Cons: "Must have been an old plane; the seats were a bit worn and the screens are tiny."
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Having free snacks"
Cons: "The outward flight was rerouted to a different airport, and the return flight was delayed by more than an hour. Not even a glass of water free of charge."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and the food was okay!!"
Cons: "Poor entertainment, uncomfortable seats & delayed"
Cons: "Just wish there was another few inches width on seats"
Pros: "Not a lot. Just that the departure was on time."
Cons: "This Business-class seat is a proper rip-off. The only difference from Economy is the in-between seat is not used. No extra leg room whatsoever. Economy from Honolulu to Los Angeles I had more leg room then this one. Unacceptable response from the crew: "that's how it's been the last years"."
Pros: "Food was great, staff was so sweet and patient"
Cons: "Never on time, always late, always either missing my connections or running throug the airport"
Pros: "Terrible food. The food will actually make you sick."
Cons: "Charge extra for food but provide food that will not make you sick."
Cons: "Everything was great but they did not recognized the fact that I was vegetarian and by the time they passed by to ask what I wanted for food, they only had Curry Chicken as an option. They tried to be helpful but unfortunately I was not able to eat much in an eight hour flight."
Pros: "Timing of flight. Gate not too distant at Gatwick.."
Cons: "The check in and seat allocation process is awful. Boarding was chaotic with passengers still standing as we rolled back (quite sensibly the pilot did not want to miss the slot). Sitting around rows 19/20 means that even on an a two hour flight, you risk attendants never reaching you with the trolley."
Pros: "The attention of the flight attendents. And tht We were on time."
Pros: "Arrived on time although departure was delayed. Cabin crew was vert friendlyand boarding was fast"
Cons: "Would have been nice if the reading material was not so beat up to match the plane's perfect interior, otherwise nothing to fault at all"
Pros: "Par from below the flight was great as always"
Cons: "CSD was rude and not nice to his fellow staff member in economy. Small delay but not a common thing"
Cons: "Luggage did not make it to Paris pit on next flight which in turn was also delayed."
Pros: "BA flight to JFK was delayed by 3 hours and it was not made up for either. We got to JFk at 3:40 as opposed to landing at 12:40pm. It was very inconvenient. Service was slow and patchy."
Pros: "Ontime, no nonsense flight"
Cons: "Sadly disappointed that drinks (even soda) are no longer free!"
Cons: "Couldn't check-in online. Website said to go to airport and talk to staff - should have said: "invalid passport, get new one!" That would have been so much more helpful. Substandard food, especially 'breakfast'"
Pros: "Unremarkable short hop that met basic expectations"
Cons: "Tight seats No snack or drink service"
Cons: "-no communication -I stayed in 17 hours of cues -no hotel or meal vouchers -was not let out of the airport -no hydration in lines - people passed out -no line control, people were cutting and lots of arguments ensued -staff was not knowledgeable, was rude to angry customers -baggage was never returned to me, so I had to buy clothes for my business trip -did not answer phones -website went down -no apology or automatic refund, i had to call to get a manual refund"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, helpful and polite. The food was delicious and there was planty leg room. A great airline to fly with and I'd highly recommend them."
Cons: "Nothing, all was great."
Cons: "Being late"
Cons: "horrible seating"
Cons: "Water costed money and only credit card accepted"
Cons: "We waited 3 hours in the airplane before they would take off, first because they said there was a line for the taxi gate, then they said something was wrong with the airplane they needed to fix it. Shouldn't they do maintenance before they load a plane?"
Pros: "Nice aircraft and decent service. Cleanliness was good."
Cons: "The lie flat seats were good but cramped and claustrophobic near the head rest."
Pros: "Staff tried to make up for the crappy plane with food and drinks"
Cons: "Entertainment started 90 minutes after take off do to not fuctioning.. No USB ports to charge phones so I couldn't use my own phone for entertainment. When the entertainment did come on it was horrible. Old screens and ear phone ports didn't really work right. Plane was out dated and old I probably won't fly British air again."
Cons: "Leg room/space BA offers is calculated for short and small body frame passengers and it is on not acceptable. It feels like cattle Wagon. BA should show consideration for real passengers not some sort of statistical average. I am 6'4" and sitting in your plane's cabin inflicts hours of body pain. The space given is sufficient for children and teenagers. Also sitting in the hot cabin for extended amount of time is extremely uncomfortable. Why there is no cooling and proper air ventilation right from the beginning?"
Pros: "The Chief Purser came over to apologize. At the end of the flight, the Captain came to me to apologize on behalf of the airline. (Too little, way too late.)"
Cons: "I am handicapped and the jetway was broken. British Airways took a bad situation and made it worse! Obviously they had no contingency plans and the gate agents just wan't to avoid any responsibility and started blaming the poor man who had been wheeling me all over the airport. ONLY BRITISH AIRWAYS WAS AT FAULT FOR THIS. Eventually they put me on a lift several gates away and then loaded me onto the platform lift of one of those catering trucks that deliver food to the planes and drove me to my plane. The plane door was shut and they had to bang on the door to have them open it and let me board. As a result, I personally delayed the flight (officially) 28 minutes; in reality about 40 minutes. This was one of the most embarrassing and humiliating experiences of my life; to be loaded on a plane like freight!! Is this how British Airways operates??"
Pros: "I loved the hot towel svc, the food and beverage svc. Flight attendants very attentive."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "It was short"
Cons: "Lost luggage - no one cared despite it clearly being lost at check in going down a broken bag shute. Plane was late. BA is losing their upmarket appeal trying to compete with cheaper airlines."
Cons: "The only issue I had was having to check my bag. I didn't feel it was necessary."
Pros: "Nothing to state on this flight. Just a low cost flight. Minimum service for just a short distance journey."
Cons: "Minimum service as usual for a low cost flight."
Pros: "For economy class it was good seats (bulkhead), the crew were nice, and the food was good."
Cons: "The tiny screens for movies were awful. Worst of all, the horribly loud voices that nearly break eardrums when the crew comes on during the flight was both painful and annoying."
Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived on time. Went up and came down again without any fuss. Cabin crew were efficient."
Cons: "Boarding took too long. Whilst I was travelling posh at the front of the aeroplane, why not fill it up from the back? I would be quite happy to be the last one on board."
Cons: "overall service and inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Quick flight with no issues"
Cons: "Little cramped."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew and decent food. Price also good"
Cons: "20 year old plane with tiny entertainment screens. Old and uncomfortable seats, especially for a long flight. Can't believe we were at a remote parking position inbound and outbound at LHR..."
Cons: "Boarding process atrocious! First a gate change from A to C gates, requiring a train to transit. Then, after walking down a jetway, we were sent through an emergency exit, down two flights of stairs and herded onto buses, and I mean herded. We (including elderly and moms with infants) alongwith our carry-ons were harshly ordered to squeeze together on a bus until there was literally no room to move. A lengthy bus ride with very disgruntled passengers to plane was followed by another set of stairs up to the cabin door. Finally, our departure was delayed 30 minutes while the bags of 2 passengers who got lost in the airport (probably on a bus or train) were retrieved. Not sure whether the fault lies with Heathrow or British Airways, but the experience was bad enough to avoid both in future."
Pros: "Excellent staff"
Cons: "There is nothing to dislike about BA"
Pros: "Once I arrived to London and missed my connecting flight due to British Airways being two hours late, the re-routing process was somewhat helpful but I could not arrive back to my destination until 24 hours later as scheduled causing me to pay an additional day worth of parking for my vehicle in Atlanta and missing a day of work."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and although I had a very small amount of time to make the flight upon arriving to London, I was denied boarding because I was told I wouldn't make the flight, my seat was given up and I had to rebook another flight."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Not enough carry on space this distortion made by less hold luggage"
Pros: "See above."
Pros: "Experience at Heathrow was much better outbound. Short waits smooth check in. Boarding was easy despite 30 minute delay"
Cons: "no complisnts"
Pros: "boarding was quick"
Cons: "seats werent that good for sleeping but I managed"
Pros: "We landed safely in Paris. Crew were nicer than the one from SFO TO LONDON"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable."
Pros: "Food was good. Movie selection was nice. Crew were polite ad helpful."
Cons: "Due to conflicts with American airlines i was unable to check in and select my seat. Therefore I was not able to sit with my fiancee. Made a very long flight very unpleasant."
Pros: "I booked on BA but flew Iberia. The crew were friendly. The food was better than many airlines I have flown."
Cons: "My screen quite working half way through the flight a continually reset after that. Water was only offered 1 time between meals."
Pros: "Really appreciated AC getting us on an earlier flight as our scheduled flight was delayed over 2 hours due to weather."
Pros: "Flight delayed. Missed connecting flight"
Cons: "Lost my baggage even though I actually watched them transport it to the airplane from the airplane window. Brutal."
Cons: "More clearly written policy about baggage allowance"
Pros: "How I was treated How I felt was wonderful."
Cons: "They changed planes and the seats I paid for at reservation were different on the new plane. No warning!!"
Pros: "I liked the selection of movies and food."
Cons: "Attendance were not as nice as the other Asian airlines. Tooth brush and toothpaste might be better addition. The bathroom was short."
Pros: "The passengers, the Brussels airport retail area, 1 of the flight attendants who was polite and welcoming, and the entertainment selections. Finally being connected to Swiss staff."
Cons: "The crew was not very welcoming and was borderline rude when I asked any sort of question such as why I was not allowed to wear my headphones prior to take off. I was patient in not wearing them, but could not relaxing into the trip for the 40+ minutes we remained on the ground mostly not moving. I was tired when boarding and fumbled with my documents and was very curtly told to just hand them over. Another time I accidentally mistook headphones the stewardess was handing out for something else. I took a pair and then immediately gave them back with an apology that I didn't realise what they were, but thanked her anyway. This was met with a scowl and a bit of opposition. There was one stewardess that was very nice and accommodating out of the entire crew. On top of this the toilet seat on the plane was broken, so it fell on you when you were trying to go to the bathroom, and the soap dispenser was broken. I didn't dare mention these things to the flight crew though. The plane was late taking off from Montreal, and so was late landing in Brussels. No effort was made to provide connections assistance, or provide directions on where to go to rebook our missed connections. I and all others traveling to Zurich spent the entire morning trying to find anyone from Air Canada to help us rebook our flights. We literally were going from desk to desk between two terminals, and consulting each other as we went to limit the amount of leg work we all had to do. We all had to finally leave the terminal area and go to Swissport and stand in a long slow line. By that time any afternoon flight was already overbooked. So I and a group of other passengers were booked for an evening flight which forced me to book a hotel in Zurich because I couldn't get to where I needed to be that evening. After being rebook, I still tried to get on an earlier flight by going directly to the gate. It was confirmed that there was some extra space available, but they would not switch me to the earlier flight because I had a checked bag that I could not separate me from. Ultimately my bag was lost which made me have to stay awake and in the Zurich airport even longer after I finally arrived going from one lost baggage representative to another, and then waiting in another line to finally fill out paperwork because my bag had never been scanned in Brussels. The Zurich representatives were very polite, helpful, and efficient compared to anyone I encountered in Montreal, or Brussels. I was without my bag for 3.5 days of what was supposed to be a 10 day trip. My trip was reduced to 9 days because I spent an entire day in the Brussels airport and then had to spend the night in Zurich. I arrived in Zurich on Saturday night, and received my bag on Tuesday afternoon. All in all it was not a good experience until I got to Switzerland."
Pros: "Great attitude of the crew & staff! Similar feel to SW personable ,professional people."
Cons: "Thrifty Canucks are cheap on the snacks, both size & quality, but then it's a two-hour-nap-flight so no big deal"
Cons: "Delayed over an hour then cancelled last minute, rebooked on a flight the next day that didn't leave until noon, had to call into reservations to get on an earlier flight on another airline"
Pros: "Disable passenger here. They were very helpful and accommodating"
Cons: "The fact air canada booted me and my year and a half year old off the plane. They gave me no compensation for the fact that they did this. So not impressed I never made it to Montreal"
Pros: "Accommodations given fue to cancellation"
Cons: "Extra baggage fees and experience with some of the crew"
Cons: "2 hour delay. Missed the connection in Vancouver in which crew could not be found and were not helpful. Ended up using another airline's counter for help to catch another flight out. Luggage was left in Vancouver. Eva Airline helped with luggage location and shipping to final destination."
Pros: "The end of the trip and delivery of luggage 24 hours after arriving in Vienna"
Cons: "Old and partly broken plane, horrible food. 2 officials to immigrate hundreds of people at Brussels. Breakdown of luggage system in Brussels. No luggage at arrival in Vienna."
Cons: "They feel like seats for budget flights."
Pros: "I liked the care, the kindness, and the help"
Pros: "I liked the fact that they provided beverages and food."
Cons: "I hated how there was NO entertainment. Honestly on a 12 + hour flight this was a bit ridiculous. No tv, or movies... no screen on the seat at all. Not even a big one for everyone to enjoy! It was horrible... The seats were so cramped and the staff seemed a bit unprofessional and sloppy looking. The food was pretty bad as well. I've had my fair share amount of flights and honestly this was probably the worse one i've gone on with the amount of hours it took to get to our destination. I wouldn't have mind too much if there was no entertainment on a 2 or 3 hour flight..."
Pros: "Clean plane. Polite staff"
Cons: "Little leg room"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Old plane, old tv screen difficult to use. Awkward seating behind economy plus."
Pros: "Dinner was ok, Breakfast and coffee were horrrible"
Cons: "Very rude staff, would not do anything I asked and responded with attitude"
Pros: "loved the free movies"
Pros: "Nice service, flight was on time and can't complain. :)"
Cons: "Nothing to really put in here. Only a short flight and everything was above board. Sorry, no rant or raving today. Maybe next time."
Pros: "Husband uses a walker and staff assisted him as much as possible. All in all it was a good trip. I still prefer to fly Air Canada."
Cons: "Flight cancelled on Monday due to runway repairs. Rebooked on Wednesday. I could walk faster."
Pros: "A reasonable amount of leg room (I'm 6'1" and didn't have my knees pressed against the seat ahead), decent selection of films, and regular food--airplane food, but decent for that."
Cons: "The tv in business class weren't really working... stopping the movies by it self and I had to always restart them until I gave up on watching a movie!"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "The headphone jack on my seat was broken which for a 5.5 hour flight is quite difficult. The only compensation the air flight attendant offered was a glass of wine,which I couldn't drink due to being on medication. I had purchased 3 meals and 2 snacks so she could have comped one of them. This is the second time I experienced this on Air Canada with little to no appropriate service recovery. I had my iPad~an offer of free wii fii would have also been an option"
Pros: "Alles goed"
Pros: "The food was not really good."
Cons: "Boarding by zones is an excellent idea; but it does not work very well. Peole still making lines and standing in front of the gate when their zones have not been called out. Making boarding very difficult and confusing."
Cons: "The anxious flight crew. Would like more variety on the player and I shouldn't have to watch a 4 minute commercial after every 20 min episode, especially when it's my own device."
Pros: "Really friendly crew."
Cons: "The plane doesn't have an entertainment system and the seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was late. No device from air Canada"
Pros: "The smoothness with which the pilot flew the plane was remarkable. I felt very safe."
Cons: "1) For a four hour flight it's sad that we were not even offered a snack we didn't have to purchase. After being delayed for more than 2 hours many of the passengers were hungry by the time we boarded. 2) The flight attendant passed my row without offering me a drink and when I asked I was given room temperature apple juice and not given any ice."
Cons: "Small, older plane = not much room and very little comfort Arrived late because?!?!?!?"
Pros: "Staff was at least friendly"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight only beverages were offered - anything else (such as a snack or small meal) had to be purchased. Very cheap service IMO. The selection of entertainment (movies/tv shows) was exceptionally limited and out of date. Their way of boarding the plane (via zone) is very backwards as families with children weren't asked to board until half way through the plane loading (unless those families had already paid for the more expensive zone upgrades). Most airlines let them load first to give them extra time. My checked bag was 1.2kg over the limit so I had to open the bag and switch 1.2kg of clothing into my carry on in front of the rest of those checking in. What an embarrassment and such foolery. All in all Westjet does a better job for trips across Canada. Will not be trying Air Canada again."
Pros: "Good movies and interesting flight map!"
Cons: "Almost a 3 hour delay which made me miss the ferry that I pre-booked and is not refundable (over a $100 ticket). Have to pay for flight food which is unacceptable. Okay leg room but very tight at the shoulders. I've flown on much better."
Pros: "once i got through checking in everything was ok"
Cons: "if i knew the name of the man i talked to at checkin i would make a complaint specifically about him. i lost my passport a few days before coming home and went to the united states consulate where they told me to bring a printed copy of my passport and the united states boarding patrol would let me back into the united states. the man at the checkin didn't want to let me through to even speak to the united states border patrol and told me the consulate was wrong. i almost missed my flight because of his stubborn arrogance. once past him i was able to explain what happened and show what identification I had and everyone was very nice to me."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and flight was on time."
Cons: "I was disappointed that there was no meal served on the plane."
Pros: "4 and a half hours of delay and only 10 dollars voucher to eat."
Cons: "The customer service"
Cons: "No good movies or music"
Pros: "Air Canada canceled or delayed all flights out of New York on the night I was supposed to fly to Toronto, then Rio. Their delays effectively made me miss my connecting flight from Toronto to Rio. The airline employees told me they would not be able to get me to Rio for another two days. I ultimately cancelled my flight with Air Canada and booked a direct flight to Rio with American Airlines at the last minute, which was a much smoother experience."
Pros: "We missed our connecting flight due to a delay and we were automatically rebooked on the next fight. On an US airline, we would have o stand in line to get that done. We traveled on Rouge, from Venice to Montreal, and it was better than the reviews I had prior. There was an outlet to charge electronic devices and the app was easy to use."
Cons: "The delay was due to getting baggage loaded. 1.5 hours. There is an issue there."
Pros: "Entertainment options, crew were excellent."
Cons: "Food wasn't great. Dinner options were a bit of chicken with couscous and veggies or cavatappi with tomatoes. Breakfast was a piece of banana bread, which was good, but I'd have loved something with protein or a piece of fruit."
Cons: "LONG DELETED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "very nice people, food ok"
Cons: "Bad organization at Montreal for special passengers, plus technical pb => flight delayed 45mn"
Pros: "Not much. Maybe the boarding is not bad and the flight is on time"
Cons: "The crew is rude and unprofessional. Really low efficient and the seats are uncomfortable. Too tide for a 14 hours flight"

Cons: "My seat could not move and the antertainment system dident work"
Pros: "Comfortable. Good entertainment and good service. Crew was nice"
Cons: "Missed our flight from Brussels to Zurich. United said we were booked on next flight six hours later. Gave us vouchers and that was it. Went to check in and the carrier said sorry you can’t board United did not book you. The voucher just has prior info and this flight time. So we missed getting on that flight 3 total hours on the phone with United and they did nothing but put us on hold. Thank you to Brussels air who finally after many years and frustration helped us so we could leave. More than 10 hours later than we should have. Horrible experience and we lost a day of vacation and pre paid plans for the evening I will never use kayak again for international flights. As that was part of the problem per United (probably BS but won’t ever risk it again) and will never use United airlines again as their customer service and lack of caring showed that companies true colors. I hope the rest of this dream vacation is better than this nightmare was."
Pros: "We were surprised to find ourselves assigned to the bulkhead seats where we had extra legroom and great access to the restrooms."
Pros: "Easy connections, very timely and everything worked out great."
Cons: "Plane was full"
Cons: "Wish I could have selected my seat when booking my flight"
Pros: "IAD to Brussels Flight is ok, just stuck between 2 guys with BO. Not really the United Airline's fault. But I hope they can atleast put a sign or something."
Pros: "The price, the mango sorbet, short flight into Belgium, the coffee, the water being offered often"
Cons: "The tray was very dirty and obviously had not been disinfected from the previous flight. So I brought it to the attention of one of the crew members, and I felt like she made fun of me in front of other passengers for not liking my tray dirty; and she got a little paper towel for serving, wet it with a bottled water, and wiped my tray quickly. Not hygienic at all and not a word of apology. AIR FRANCE is so much better when it comes to customer service! Also I did not like the constant interruption on the speakers, very loud in my headsets and difficult to watch a movie on tiny screens. The crew members seemed very bossy and uncaring, if not actually rude."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew made this trip pleasant and entertaining."
Cons: "Despite plenty of empty seats, the ground personnel would not consider changing our seat assignment at the gate to allow us to sit together."
Pros: "Very good flight, good service and good night of rest."
Cons: "space between seats!"
Pros: "There was a good entertainment system with a lot of new options."
Cons: "My itinerary said I fly on Brussels Airlines on a specific flight number. I went to the international terminal to discover it is not there. I then asked multiple aiport staff members if they heard of Brussels Airlines and they said they did not. One person said it may be terminal 1, so I went there based on very little information and with hopes it would be there. I got to terminal 1 to discover there is no Brussels Airlines. I walked to Lufthansa because my return flight is through them, but it was not there either. At this point I have 45 min to make it through security and board, and no one can tell me where Brussels Airlines is. The good news is the flight was delayed, and I got an email from United Airlines with the flight status. This is the first time I was contacted by United and there was a completly different flight number than the itinerary. United should be more clear on the airline and terminal information for international flights!"
Pros: "no problems on flight. complimentary wine."
Cons: "seats bit tight for international flight. why do I have to pay more for more leg room"
Pros: "Great crew and flight attendants, kept us informed of everything, very helpful and prompt on all questions and requests. Movie selection was impressive. Boarding was efficient and flight even left early. Surprisingly pleasant experience in economy for a long flight."
Pros: "1. We booked seats together then when I checked in they had moved my seat and we were no longer sitting together. And then I couldnt get the window seat I had paI'd for :( 2. No boarding announcement and the "gate" was under construction so was a madhouse to board. 3. The crew member put her sweater in my food and pushed the coffee so hard to the person next to me it spilled all over him. To be fair she did apologize for throwing coffee on him. 4. The TV screens were so old you had to push the "touch" screen so your headrest kept moving if the person behind you couldn't decided what to watch... and then hard to watch anything yourself. The food was nasty."
Cons: "See above. I didn't like anything, this might have been the worst flight I've ever had to Brussels. I thought I booked a European carrier, but ugh it was actually United. They only care about business class and first class."
Pros: "Nice food, good crew"
Pros: "Just about everything was perfect. lots of leg room in economy plus, seat next to me stayed empty, the meals were very taste. And the crew members were extremely professional. It was just a perfect experience."
Pros: "Good selection of entertainment."
Cons: "See above comments."
Pros: "We had nice flight even so the airplain was full."
Cons: "Not quite.little bit noisy."
Pros: "The plane is very comfortable ."
Cons: "The entertainment - not enough movies on Russuian or Hebrew"
Cons: "we have been sitting in the cabin for over an hour while they have feuled the plain as they forgot to complete it"
Cons: "Lack of updates"
Pros: "Everything's on time"
Pros: "Good food, nice movies. I set in the second line so there was no place to put personal things on the seat before me."
Cons: "The flight was over booked... To many people in the gate."
Cons: "The snack"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Crew did not get all passengers drink"
Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful and went as expected."
Cons: "We were instructed to hand in our hand luggage before boarding the plane which meant we had to wait in a long one after the flight to get the luggage back. HOWEVER, the plane had plenty of overhead luggage room to accommodate our luggage. We were told by the cabin staff that the gate personnel don't always check what size plane it is before requiring everyone to hand in their luggage."
Pros: "Flight on time, no delays or problems"
Cons: "Seating for midgets"
Cons: "About two hours before my flight, it was canceled after previously making an airplane switch the night before after checking in online. The I received an email while I was on the way to the airport saying that the airplane that I was going to fly out on was canceled due to airplane maintenance. While I am happy they didn't fly the plane while needing maintenance, they should have planned ahead and known of the maintenance or had a backup ready to go. Obviously it must have been something they just found, but in the big picture of things. You have to pay an way to much for a flight as it is. They should have to solve their own issues to honor their part of the contract. We (as customers) can't cancel a flight with out penalties. Why shouldn't they have to do the same?"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in."
Cons: "EVERYTHING WAS EXCELLENT"
Pros: "Great tasting food, excellent customer service, and free wine and beer! Couldnt be happier!"
Pros: "They whole computer system went down all morning"
Cons: "I haven't made it. Their computer system was down all morning. I got a pretty inexpensive flight which was refunded. Although I can't go home, all the one way tickets are 3 times the price. Me and my 6 month old baby can't get home to his daddy."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "They lost my bag for my entire vacation. They found it and "rushed" it to me, but it got waylaid in SFO and would have sat there had I not called them. Then they said they would deliver it to my hotel. When it arrived 4 days later, they said I could pick it up and they would not deliver it. I was 2.5 hours away. I told them to send it home, but they didn't and when I flew home 7 days later, it was still sitting in Munich!"
Pros: "Everything was great, no waits, and right on time!"
Pros: "That the flight was on time. disenchanted flight attendants. Makes you want to not need her assistance."
Cons: "Disenchanted flight attendants. For whatever reason, it is obvious that there is unhappiness. Not flat affect, just the look of disinterest, a look that tells you I don't care. In a customer based business it is so disheartening that the very person you may have to depend on to survive is not vested in the clientele that keeps her company in business, thereby insuring future paychecks. I'd like to communicate here that it wasn't all the attendants on either flight, but enough that it was obvious to anyone who paid even casual attention. I was flying home to California, so there were two additional flights a few days before the flights home. I never had any of the same flight attendants on any of the flight. As far as my observation of the attendants, as stated above, I think that speaks volumes. I will cite an example that happened on my trip from Iowa to Denver. I need wheelchair assistance, I walk with a cane, but not able to walk any distance. I pack a light carry-on, bring my purse, jacket and cane. I was being wheeled up the passageway in a regular wheelchair, and the man pushing me stated to the on-coming crew he "would be right back to get my suitcase, couldn't take both at the same time", and added " unless one of you could roll it up?". After an embarrassing pause, a female flight attendant said "Let the flight attendant do it. Add this to the list of responsibilities that aren't really my job." I actually twisted around to look at this person, I was so stunned to hear that! She grabbed my rolling carry-on handle and the look spoke columns. I was embarrased. Thank you. Debra K. Forsythe"
Cons: "Obnoxious crew, repeating the same instructions over and over. No food, no entertainment. Short flight though."
Pros: "Everything was great and the trip was on time perfect"
Pros: "On time arrival, the food, the crew"
Cons: "No power outlet and very old entertainment system. United has introduced a nice wifi-based entertainment system but if you do not have power outlets to keep devices up the system is pretty much useless after one movie or less."
