Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew and snacks"
Cons: "They take the headphones about an hour before landing which isn’t ideal."
Cons: "Need longer transfer time in Frankfurt airport. They use buses to airplanes and that eats up time. Also, passport control line can be long. Fights to and fro gave us barely enough time and we were last ones to board"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Convenient seats in A-380"
Cons: "Drinks were good, but food was bad"
Pros: "Nothing. It didn't happen."
Cons: "Flight to Frankfurt from Denver could have been on time so we would've made this flight to Prague."
Cons: "The airline cancelled my ticket and did not notify me. I found out only when I arrived to check my bag. Lufthansa cancelled my flight because they said I had “no showed” for my previous flight two weeks before. This was absolutely not true."
Pros: "Amazing service, the crew the seat was comfortable, the meals exceed my expectations, the movie selection, everything was awesome."
Cons: "Can't think of anything.."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite"
Pros: "excellent crew"
Cons: "seats could be wider and seatbealts cud be wider"

Pros: "Cabin crew and service"
Cons: "Left over 2 hours late and we missed our condo in Chicago and had to rebook and spend the night"
Cons: "I still think it makes more sense to board the seats in the back of the plane before those further forward. It is difficult to get past the people who stand in the aisle or take forever to try to put their bag in the overhead bin."
Pros: "Same as above same as a bove"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "They lost my bag"
Pros: "flight attendant found me a seat away from the screaming babies."
Cons: "I was surrounded by about 6 babies. This is not acceptable for a long flight! I would like to have options as to where I sit. There should be a baby section where families pay more to be in a section on their own!!"
Cons: "The landing was exceptionally rough Also we were delayed one hour and then had to wait some more in hot bus until plane was ready"
Pros: "The service and the entertainment system"
Cons: "Food was not up to the mark, which it almost always is. The crew were a little rude at times, which is also not very common with this airlines."
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. My seat was near the front of the plane but the crew directed me to enter at the back of the plane. There were people entering from both the front and the back, meaning people were stuck trying to get past each other in the tight aisle. It was difficult to find space in the overhead compartments for carryon luggage due to people bringing too much stuff - the crew should have stepped in and helped. The food was a bad chicken sandwich with condiments that I could not eat."
Pros: "Only thing I liked was getting off that compact death trap"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I was not on this flight."

Cons: "Food wasn’t great"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "Entertainment choices, food, on time, kind crew, and comfortable seating."
Cons: "Crying babies-but that's not the airlines fault at all"
Cons: "Took a few time to ask for my kosher food. Crew couldn't locate me on the list, than the were out of kosher food, gave me regular breakfast, which I couldn't eat more than granola. It was pre-ordered, and I called to confirm a week ahead."

Pros: "I loved the choice of movies"
Cons: "Lack of space"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed which caused us to miss our next flight. This was a huge inconvenience. When we were in line to get our hotel they did not help the people who were first in line. We were in the middle of the line, but got everything organized for us LAST."
Cons: "Pilot strike caused much distress in Frankfort. The best that could be done was a layover extended by 5 hours and a diversion to Luxembourg. The final leg of the trip was further delayed an extra hour due to mechanical difficulties in Luxembourg."
Cons: "It was hit on the plane and no way to regulate airflow"
Pros: "Please see above. Typed in the wrong place."
Pros: "Decent food, wide variety of in flight entertainment (movies and tv shows) and great, friendly service! Overall great value! Will fly Lufthansa again if going to Europe!"
Pros: "The flights itself was ok. The flight attendants caused me no problems, and the flights, when I FINALLY got on them, were smooth."
Cons: "everything else. The franfurt airport closure made me miss school because they did not offer extra flights to accommodate all the displaced travelers. I had to stay in the Frankfurt airport for a FULL EXTRA DAY, and every time I tried to get a new ticket, or ask anyone for help, I was given the run around. No one was helpful. I talked to about a dozen Lufthansa employees that day and only one was helpful at all. It was a hellish nightmare. Before my last flight, I was furious with how I had been treated all day and a horrible Lufthansa woman yelled at me for being upset about the situation. Then, when after much hassle I finally got to my destination, I was told my baggage was lost. That was on thursday and I still have not gotten it. i am never flying lufhansa again. This was the worst trip of my entire life."
Pros: "Every things"
Pros: "if i had booked that flight the overall experience would have been great. on time, good service, comfortable seats, good food and great entertainment."
Cons: "i booked a different flight, so we ended up adding significant travel time and cost to this trip which made the overall experience somewhat frustrating. — airlines also need to get better at keeping families seated close to each other if the kids are small. it adds to the overall travel anxiety and gets everyone in a bad mood."
Cons: "seats were old and uncofmortable. i asked for coffee which they totally forgot to bring me and the crew was just generally mean and very dismissive. no food at all - could have served a breakfast sandwich or something no entertainment or charging docks. ."
Pros: "I sat in row 95, the first economy row behind Business Class on three upper level of the A380. Infinite leg room. Seat reclined more than usual in economy. Boarding was pretty good. Three gangways, one for First and Business, two for Economy. Crew was very friendly throughout"
Cons: "Seat was still very narrow. I had the whole low cal meal. The fruit for dessert was nice, if half frozen, but the meal was dry chicken breast with some veggies, with a dry chicken 'salad' as side"
Cons: "I got a wrong flight from you, different than the one initially selected, upon my payment !...with 6 hours overlay instead of 50 minutes. For that I had to pay extra $300 !"
Pros: "everything is good!!!"
Pros: "Nice attendants."
Cons: "They left one of the bags at Frankfort and we had to wait 8 hrs at the airport till they could get it back."
Cons: "Wheelchair assistance at Heathrow was very very slow it took 2 hours to change gates within Terminal 5"
Cons: "Overbooked flights led to a missed connection resulting in a 12 hour layover"
Cons: "Schedule issues, rerouted thru LA, very very painful travel, multiple security checks for an issue from the airline schedule. Airline doesn’t give reroute options. Two bags opened and missing personal items. Very frustrating travel. Kids meal choices missing on rerouted flights. I can go on..."
Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "We got the extended leg room seat we asked for, but next time I will be a bit more particular about its position. The problem was we were right behind the Business/Economy partition, which a) limited our stowage and b) it was a passageway for passengers getting from on aisle to the other."
Pros: "The crew worked hard and was courteous."
Cons: "This was American Airlines flight, not British Airways. The plane was old and quite uncomfortable. The entertainment system was subpar. The AA app was supposed to give opportunity to get more choice using personal devices but the system did not work on this old plane."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional, and I appreciated their attention to detail even though it was a relatively short flight."
Cons: "Had no idea we had not payed to check a bag. Could have paid online prior to boarding for 30 pounds, but because we did not know, had to pay 65 pounds in order to check a bag at the airport. I am extremely dissatisfied with this flight and with British airways in general. I wish I would have known about the baggage and I could have saved myself a LOT of money. British airway crew were rude and unhelpful. I will not be flying with them again."
Cons: "The plane had a mechanical problem and did not fly out. We are hoping to fly out one day later."
Cons: "Check in with British at LHR very bad and slow"
Pros: "Terrible food. The food will actually make you sick."
Cons: "Charge extra for food but provide food that will not make you sick."
Pros: "Beautiful plane. Cool black leather seats. Extremely nice crew."
Cons: "No tv our power source"
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment thus the star rating. The one thing that was very uncomfortable were the seats, there was no lower back support at all."
Cons: "BA has a lot of nerve charging first-class prices for coach-seat legroom. The fact that the middle seat is empty doesn't warrant the price increase. Abominable food and no in-flight entertainment complete the picture."
Cons: "There was a charg for ALL drinks & food! This made the service process quite long & cumbersome."
Pros: "Great safety video, made me laugh."
Pros: "It was short and fine"
Cons: "Poor service and communication"
Cons: "Tight seating altho many open at rear so was able to move there"
Pros: "We slept the entire flight since this was the second leg of our journey."
Cons: "Plane departed 40 minutes late even though we were on board in time. Congestion at Heathrow was the problem, but this was not a problem for us since we got an extra 40 minutes of sleep."
Pros: "My upgrade."
Cons: "That I needed to be searched again before boarding the plane. The long layover."
Pros: "Overall, I had a very good experience."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have more leg room. When the passenger in front of me put her seat back I was stuffed like a canned sardine. Luckily, the plane was not full so we were able to spread out a bit."
Pros: "The flight left early and arrived early."
Cons: "The lack of check-in information when we arrived at Malta airport. The check-in only opens two hours before the flight but there were no signs or information advising of this."
Pros: "- Boarded and left on time (both flights) - Crew was excellent - Free wine with dinner even in economy! - 787 is super comfortable and enjoyed the entertainment selection as well"
Cons: "Planes should just be boarded back to front. Also, it seems that boarding just isn't announced at the gate tomorrow."
Pros: "Because of you he delayed flight from Los Angeles they gave us a new one to Milan which arrived on n Linate instead of Malpensa two hours after my scheduled trip. Not nice"
Cons: "Poor service from the customer service phone line. Pure waste of time. Couldn't help with simple questions about checking in...Sad"
Cons: "The flight was 1+ hour late, but little information made available, including basic info like gate."
Pros: "British Airways makes you pay for water!!! I accept paying for food and drinks but water should be free Also their machines to pay on board don’t accept USA credit cards so I couldn’t pay but a kind flight attendant allowed me to buy with card and she hand wrote info"
Pros: "Uneventful, other than having missed the original connecting flight on account of delays."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment, so I can't rate them."
Pros: "The flight we ended up taking was just fine. The crew was very nice, most of the food was good, and the seats were comfortable even in stowage."
Cons: "Our flight was about 10 hours so we got 2 meals, 1 hot 1 cold. The hot meal had a vegetarian option and that was acceptable. The cold meal was a chicken salad sandwich with no other choices. As a vegetarian we tried to take off the chicken salad part and just eat the rest but that didn't leave much. Vegetarian options for all meals would have been nice."
Pros: "Perfect landing"
Cons: "Not enough food in a meal"
Cons: "The flight status erroneously showed it to be "Cancelled""
Pros: "I always try to fly British Airways whenever possible."
Cons: "Charged us for food and even soft drinks on an international flight! I haven't experienced nickel and diminig like this on a n Major carrier like this."
Pros: "Great flight, nice and short. Great crew, very helpful"
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight and the seats were much smaller that I expected."
Pros: "I love to fly on BA. Along with KAL, it is my favorite."
Cons: "Only problem this time was that the video monitors in the Economy class on the entire right side (Seats I-J-K) went out early in the flight and could not be repaired."
Pros: "The long wait at the airport had air conditioning"
Cons: "Webjet.com and me are waiting to get my flight changed by British Airways. I tried to change my flight because of paperwork issues. I was not given any paper to report the issue. I took pictures of myself at the British Airways counter. I called customer service. They told me my contract was with webjet.com. Webjet.com told me British Airways initially reported that it was a no show. (I was at the counter for about 2 hours, and they knew I had a contract with webjet.com). I hope that my contract with webjet.com does not become frustrated because of British Airways interference. I was not even allowed to change my flight to come back at the end of September. It is very likely that British Airways has some part of the money paid to webjet.com. I am still waiting for British Airways to cooperate. I don't understand why webjet.com had to tell me British Airways initially reported my long wait and conversations with their agents for 2 hours as a no show. I can prove I was there and that I talked to their agents. I also have the email from webjet.com in which they told me British Airways was reporting it to the webjet.com as a no show (and they knew I had a contract with webjet.com)"
Cons: "Four hours before departure, the flight was canceled! Unfortunately, the ticket workers were too few in trying to reboot all the passengers. I was transferred to United after an hour and a half wait but was sent back to Aer Lingus (who was operating the flight for BA) by United because the Aer Lingus ticket personnel made the reservation on United but failed to provide the information necessary to generate the ticket. Never British Airways/ Aer Lingus again!"
Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing There was no food or entertainment on short flight"
Pros: "The food was really good, and we were served tea with scones, clotted cream and jam towards the end of the flight. VERY friendly and nice crew."
Cons: "Cramped seats - unsuitable for this 6' tall girl"
Pros: "Very professional. Crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "British Airways crew was the nicest and most kind staff I've had an experience with. Definitely top notch."
Cons: "I'm not an expert in airport logistics, but I don't understand why tests are done after the customers have already boarded. Very poor experience when the test failed and we deboarded."
Cons: "Although it was clear already around 9:30 that this flight (scheduled to depart at 10:25) would be severely delayed sue to fog in CDG and LHR, the local British Airways staff adamantly refused to assist in rerouting us either from Paris or from London to our final destination in Chicago. Their complete lack of cooperation was stunning and quite offensive. A different tune was played by the airport staff for international connections who helped us expeditiously and kindly to be rerouted on an United Airlines flight."
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: "same service from AA"
Pros: "Flights were fine, normal, typical. No leg-room but that's the case on all flights these days."
Cons: "Flights were fine but connection time in London AWEFUL! They gave us just one hour to connect and you absolutely can not get from one terminal to the other - a long distance apart even by bus - and then go through security yet again, in just one hour. Then, as everyone is in the same boat, you wait in line for a couple of hours to be re-booked. Terrible! It all turned into a fiasco - 11 hours of travel, turning into 24. Awful. We will NEVER USE HETHROW AIRPORT AS A CONNECTING POINT AGAIN - EVER!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The food was pretty good"
Cons: "The movie selection was really bad and not updated. They lost my luggage, but not only me, 10 more people luggage. And when we went to reclaim they didn't even have papers for all of us. Really unorganized"
Cons: "I couldn't check in on line. That was a problem for us because we were traveling with 3 children and the flight was full. At the end we were not able to get sits together. I don't know if this was a problem only with my booking, because we did it through Iberia."
Pros: "Friendly and prompt attendants."
Cons: "I couldn't ask for anything more from American than what was provided"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Connections great"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Miserable all around experience"
Cons: "The flight delay was not reported correctly until 30 minutes before expected departure. The baggage carousel stopped running after already being more then a hour late. No members present to rectify. Absolutely terrible trip"
Cons: "Nothing evething is ok"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly attentive and helpful."
Pros: "Whole row to myself. Greqt movie, in early and informative pro of a captain."
Pros: "comfortable seats, legroom,"
Cons: "seat recline, food, offer lounge access"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "The crew and the duration of the flight"
Cons: "The comfort and the food"
Pros: "Crew entertainment"
Cons: "Seat cushions"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, considering the late flight & full plane."
Cons: "Took forever to get the bags"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Baggage was not that faster but was still okay Although improvements will be great"
Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."
Cons: "Most of the family were seating apart. I can't understand why?"
Pros: "The kind staff made the flight more bearable."
Cons: "No personal TV screens to watch movies, which would have been more acceptable if there were plugins at each seat to plug in personal phones/ipads/etc to help maintain battery. BUT THERE WEREN'T. Everyone's phones/ipads died a few hours into the flight and therefore had to stare at the wall for HOURS. I even brought my laptop to get some work done, but without a plugin to keep it charged, it died. In this day and age, for an overseas flight that is 10 hours long, to be this old old without updated features and without plugins, this is unacceptable. Flat out ridiculous. This plane was SO OLD and dingy. Just awful."
Pros: "Food, Crew, and entertainment were satisfactory."
Cons: "I opted to pay an additional $398 for seats just behind the bulkhead - that is, no seats directly in front of me - so that I could have extra legroom. The legroom was fine, as expected, but passengers were allowed to use that space as a corridor, keeping my wife and me awake all night. We were constantly being expected to move our legs as people passed by. I want my $398 back!"
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and nasty!"
Pros: "They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip."
Cons: "They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion."
Cons: "We waited on the check - in line for 3 hours because only 2 customer service reps were there to check-in customers. In 3 hours, only 2 people were assisted, causing us to miss our flight. I was traveling with my infant daughter on her first flight, I wasn't able to nurse her or change her. What a terrible experience. Are you working with American Airlines to improve their customer service? Surely, because you offer their flights in your site you support their practices. I just wanted a comfortable and reliable flight for my family. It's been very frustrating so far..."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient."
Cons: "Takeoff delayed 1 hr entertainment system in my seat didn't work asked crew 2x to assist and they ignored me food was poor, I'd rather have a cookie and a bag of almonds"
Pros: "Despite numerous delays, we made it to Philadelphia. We were alerted to the delays in a timely manner. We were also treated to a snack cart and cupcakes to celebrate the first day of direct flights."
Cons: "A long delay. Patience is everything and the staff and crew were very friendly."
Pros: "Very pleasant crew"
Cons: "Booked flight with my sister 6 months before departure, paid for both tickets at the same time to find out seat assignment not together.... that could be understable only if ticket is purchased at the last minute, but that was not applicable to our situation..... we could not switch seats during flight"
Cons: "Dinner was so so but nice and hot. The breakfast in economy class was awful. The apple and cinnamon cake had too much cinnamon and left an aftertaste. The yogurt and granola was ok but not everyone has a yen for either of them. The dried apple and berries were too sweet. All in all we found this meal to be unsatisfsctory. The staff had only the most necessary contact with us which was to serve and remove trays and garbage."
Pros: "Staff and Entertainment"
Cons: "Back row, but someone has to sit there :)"
Pros: "Excellent check in and access to plane food and entertainment great"
Cons: "Bed seat too short for a 6 ft 3 in guy made for an uncomfortable night"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Turbulent flight, little leg room, old plane, delayed, no entertainment."
Pros: "On time flight. Cheap ticket"
Cons: "Rickey seats. When woman in row ahead got up our drinks spilled. No personal screens and small shared screen too far away. Online entertainment did not work. Special meal came frozen. Water bottle frozen solid and only as it began to leak on floor did I realize ice had broken bottle. really primitive."
Cons: "Old plane No outlet No screen No USB Poor food quality"
Pros: "Let’s begin by saying that this plane should not be flying anymore, it’s dated and doesn’t offer any type of comfort.n No entertainment, seats are extremely uncomfortable, my husband seat was broken and wouldn’t recline. Flight attendants were sloppy and never brought me anything I asked. I asked for lactose free meal and my breakfast was a yogurt... Not worth the price I paid for this flight... stay away!!"
Pros: "The seats were more spacious than other airlines which we appreciated, and this was quite comfortable."
Cons: "The overhead lights for reading were not working however, and we could not see the movie well from our seat so not being able to read was bothersome. The crew was nice but not especially helpful when we asked questions about the food and lights."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Old aircraft, terrible food, practically no entertainment, narrow seats - although they were comfortable."
Cons: "6hours delay and no reimbursement. It sucked! Thank you."
Cons: "Plane was old and dirty, seat pocket had junk in it. Seat was broken and couldn’t stay up. In flight movies were from few years back with a center tv and no head rest screen. Crew on overseas flights tend to be older in age and less tolerant..much better on continental on the same route."
Pros: "Arriving on time"
Pros: "Terrible. Old airplane, bad food, no entertainment. To avoid in the future"
Cons: "No individual screen. It would have been nice to know that beforehand. It was an unpleasant surprise."
Cons: "American Airlines"
Pros: "Crew updates during a technical issue investigation."
Cons: "This plane is very small for an international flight, and it does not have the proper entertainment system for long flights. To top it off, the plane was very smelly; I got a headache because of it. We also had to return to the gate due to a technical issue and ended up leaving almost two hours late, which defeated the purpose of picking this flight over the rest as it was the one that was supposed to land in Milan the earliest. I will be careful next time I pick a flight to check what kind of airplane they're using. My assumption that international flights have the best airplanes seems to be wrong :(."
Pros: "The individual screen options and wide variety to keep you entertained for the flight. Very clean. Staff very helpful kind and accommodating! Look forward to flying again with them."
Cons: "Bathrooms smelled of urine by the end. Not really their fault that the passengers were filthy."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived early.T"
Cons: "This was by far the most turbulent flight I have ever been on. Perhaps it was due to the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia, but only toward the end did the flight become smooth. I am surprised that a better flight path couldn't have been chosen."
Cons: "No power outlets in seats Poor viewing options off the 3 monitors Seat back was broken (when sitting up straight, it reclined on its own"
Pros: "Crew was exceptionally lovely through delay except for lead attendant who spoke down to attendants and passengers alike (would refer to me in third person in front of me--asking attendant condescendingly "why is he here?"). terrible sense of service, spoke like I was a grade school kid in her class. Gate agent gave me last minute seat change which was very cool of her"
Cons: "Plane is terribly old, has ashtrays and audio channels for entertainment. More importantly, mechanical failures at and after gate. Total delay of over 2 hours. My girlfriend flew this same plane and had even longer delays plus needed to divert In flight and turn around and land in heathrow on a mxp-jfk route (they were over the Atlantic). Problems continue for me 2 months later on this route and as a pattern it's incredibly unsettling. I'm questioning whether taking the return flight on a plane that's clearly begging to be retired"
Pros: "We know it's high season, we got to Milan save. That's the main part, overnight flight so that was good we slept a little."
Cons: "Boarding was a little complicated, somehow they couldn't pull or flights up. But the staff was very helpful. Sorry but the plain seating was very uncomfortable, food was so so! We didn't really the kids movie on the main screen ."
Cons: "Big lines for the kiosks to print out the boarding pass, after that another line to drop off the lauggages. We left late. Horrible food. Uncomfortable sits. NO INDIVIDUAL TV."
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "Ancient aircraft Bad food No wifi No chargers Seat won't incline Seats were falling apart"
Pros: "One flight attendant was completely uninterested! Others were good despite the delay."
Cons: "One poor attitude flight attendant."
Cons: "After arriving at the airport more than 2 hours early and at the gate 30 min prior to departure, American Airlines never called last boarding call, not our names. We sat at the gate, not knowing they had boarded, and tje plane departed unbeknownst to us. Had to stand in the rebooking line for 1.5 hours before speaking to a rep who told us we couldn't rebook our international flight. Had to request a supervisor, who thankfully after an additional hour was able ro rebook us."
Cons: "Cancelled flight due to multiple mechanical malfunctions that should have been checked previous to boarding. Held on the plane for 4 hours, another 4 hours in terminal of the closed airport once allowed to deplane, no communication, no food or water, put up in a hotel an hour and half away despite this being NYC, terrible customer service, no compensation, unable to get tofinal destination earlier than 24 hours later missed events in final destination overall financial and personal losses due to the inadequacy of the airline."
Cons: "There was no phone charger at the seat."
Cons: "What happened to physical distancing? Flight was packed full."
Pros: "The food was excellent, jet airways was Rocking. Airfrance had excellent service."
Cons: "Curt and rude"
Pros: "Having the few inches of extra leg room in economy plus is very nice, and we got one alcoholic drink included in the extra fare paid. The crew was courteous and friendly. I did not use the entertainment system."
Cons: "Even though we were traveling with our small dog in cabin there's no pre-boarding to make settling in easier as there is with the competition. I could not check in on-line like I can on WestJet because of my "special service" request (small dog in cabin for the usual $50 charge) Also for the extra money paid for the"upgraded economy plus ticket" there's not a sandwich or even a snack included as there is on the competition."
Cons: "Boarding was awful"
Pros: "Significant improvement in service - on the ground and the plane. The Air Canada lounge is very good - clean with excellent catering."
Cons: "Clean washrooms. Stewardesses very helpful. Good food."
Pros: "Loved crews."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed for 5 hrs. On top of it, they brought in a smaller plane with 100+ less seating than original one which caused us losing our reserved seating. They refused to give us our seating arrangements up until the boarding time. All the other passengers had boarding tickets but us. So our family couldn’t sit together. I had a super pleasant experience with Air Canada prior to this trip so it made me so sad. On the other hand, crew were fantastic. We missed our connecting flight but they took care of us so I was happy in that sense."
Pros: "There wasn't anything that stood out that I could say I liked."
Cons: "I didn't care for the attitudes if the stage working in the Toronto airport. Things really aren't clear there for first-timers and much of the staff was acting like I should already know to do a lot of things when there weren't any clearly posted signs saying so. There is also a huge lack of organization."
Pros: "The movies on board"
Cons: "The fact the plane was late"
Pros: "Not to have to change plane between Prague and Toronto."
Cons: "No entertainment on plane, so 9 hrs reading or looking into air. Employee did only what they has to do, had missing buttons on their uniforms, shoe which were not polished since they were new. Bathroom were running out of paper."
Pros: "Superb flight and landing"
Pros: "Air Canada's airplane cleanliness is second to none in my book. That's why I always fly with them... Or rather flew..."
Cons: "The unending stream of excuses and explanations failed to convince me that this was anything but mismanagement that caused a delay of 5 hours. We'd be told something, and told the exact opposite, or a contradicting statement 15 minutes later. You botched this one bad Air Canada."
Pros: "any such long flight is not really enjoyable"
Cons: "Flight delayed, did not leave Vancouver until after we were supposed to land in Portland. No tv or wifi"
Pros: "Managed to arrive on time in spite of leaving 1 hr 15 min late."
Cons: "Air Canada connecting flight from LA was 1 hr late coming in and no indication was given whether the flight to Milan would wait, nor any help was given in getting us to the gate. We barely made it through crowds at the adjacent gates and only because we heard our name called before closing the gate. A bit of coordination and desire to help would have gone a long way in helping navigate access through a long and less than walker-friendly set of terminals."
Pros: "Decent crew. Decent collection of movies."
Cons: "Overall, this flight service from Montreal for Los Angeles (6 hrs flight) service was worse than the interconnection flight I have experienced in Europe (2 hrs flight). There is no snack provided on this journey and you have to pay for everything (snacks and even the headphones). On the European flights, the snack was provided multiple times for short duration of the flight."
Cons: "Instructions on Air Canada's website when you Google "how early should you get to the airport flying Canada to USA" say you should get there 3 hours ahead of time. For a 6:40 flight I got to the airport at 3:40, as instructed, and checkin wasn't even open. Per Air Canada's website "You should arrive at the airport three (3) hours before your flight's scheduled departure time. Pre-board security screening for departures to the U.S. opens at 3:00 AM. Exception: 20 minutes for flights departing from Toronto City Airport (YTZ)." Check in staff told me I should have gotten there 2 hours ahead. This is very conflicting. Considering I was heading to a 10 hour trade show, believe me that hour of sleep I lost between 2:30 when I had to get up for this flight and 3:30 when I could have gotten up sure was missed. Correct and consistent instructions to passengers go a long way."
Pros: "The plane itself was fairly comfortable, and every seat had its own TV/movie screen, which was nice."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed six hours and fifteen minutes, and the entire six hours and fifteen minutes was filled with poor communication. No one could tell us what was going on. There was rarely even an Air Canada representative at our gate's desk area. We were given nothing to remotely compensate for our very long delay aside from a few thanks and a puny bag of pretzels."
Pros: "Everything was good with this flight - really no complaints. The staff was very friendly too!"
Cons: "Nothing - I really have nothing to complain about with this flight."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seating that one can have. I will never fly rouge again."
Cons: "Crew service"
Cons: "A new 150$ bottle of perfume was stolen from my checked in luggage."
Cons: "Air Canada over booked the flight from toronto to Montreal and approximately 10 pax were surprised - at the gate!!! - that no seat is available on the plane although we booked this flight months in advance. It is a shame. Although we recieved 200 dollar compensation check it does not cover damage has been done for me at this trip because of my late arrival to a very important business meeting. It is really not fare and shame."
Pros: "I liked that I was finally going home for some much needed rest."
Cons: "That's we were stuck in the plane for 30min after we landed because of some miscommunication between LAX and the air Canada staff."
Pros: "I had an open seat next to me; the flight wasn't full, so I was able to stretch out more comfortably. The crew was very nice, too."
Cons: "I didn't realize I needed the app to access entertainment, and I had no way to download it when I got to the plane. I saw that a leg of my journey was on Rouge, and assumed it would be a shorter leg, not the longest. It was disappointing."
Pros: "Return flight -staff were friendly, more spaceous"
Cons: "Arrive flight to Punta cana -staff could be more corteous and friendly"
Cons: "The gate signage and control at Toronto was not good at all! I accidentally got onto the wrong plane!!! Luckily I didn't fall asleep immediately and heard them announce prior to takeoff that they were going to Nashville, and also luckily the Syracuse plane had not taken off yet either."
Pros: "Delay of 1-2 hours (first plane was at the wrong gate, and then technical issues) Montreal customs was very confusing, probably contributing to the overall crankiness of everyone on the flight. Purchased a beer, which was warm and disappointing, even though I knew it was a tasty beer normally."
Pros: "I was given an upgrade to Business so what not to like. The meal I chose was a strange combination that I would not recommend - lentils with chicken and a few carrots. The crew was great."
Pros: "At least we had movies and a book."
Cons: "The checkin staff were not at there designated area on time and the flight was delayed for over an hour causing us to not be able to board our connecting flight from Toronto to Milan."
Pros: "The 10 Euro voucher was the only pleasant part of the flight."
Cons: "Our flight through Air Canada arriving to Toronto was late and our flight to Milan from Toronto was also delayed. We would have been able to get onto the flight from Toronto to Milan because we made it to the gate in time but because our baggage was not with us we had to take the next flight that then took us to the U.K. and then to Milan. With the next air canada flight also being delayed, go figure. We finally arrive in Milan and with an entire day gone to explore the city. We waited 2 hours for luggage when our bags never came we checked lost and found and it turns out that our luggage was still in Toronto. Seriously Air Canada? Our luggage hasn't even left Toronto yet? So much for not being able to catch or last flight because our bags were not with us. We finally get our luggage a day later on the exact same flight we would have taken the day before, had Air Canada not screwed everything up."
Pros: "Nothing positive. Horrible experience."
Cons: "3 mechanical problems. Two missed flights. 16 hours late. Lost luggage. The crew sent us at wrong place, we were stuck in a room until 6:30 am. We had to sleep on chairs. Everything that could go bad went bad. Will never ever fly with Air Canada again. That is a promise."
Pros: "Landing safely."
Cons: "NO frequent flyer miles after agents said there could be. Hours wasted trying to get miles."
Pros: "Just about everything. And to top it all off, I found that the air inside the cabin was very good and so I arrived after 14 hours on board without red eyes and a headache"
Cons: "Mechanical errors delays and poor overnight accommodations."
Pros: "Movie selection Crew was kind"
Cons: "Check in was over 45 min Space between seats: I'm 6" 3" and leg space was a problem Food was mediocre"
Cons: "Kid crying and yelling the whole flight"
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and helpful. The plane was clean. It was a comfortable flight, though the food was okay."
Cons: "Liked all of it."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The breakfast served was too little. We only received a drink and a biscuit."
Pros: "professional crew members' services...."
Cons: "The food has room to improve...."
Cons: "Crew could have been friendlier, food was lacking, flight left an hour late."
Pros: "The crew and the service was top notch."
Pros: "Amazing legroom!"
Cons: "Poor selections of snacks and drinks"
Cons: "Was disappointed that there were no food/snack options on a 6-hour international flight. Also no pillows or blankets on a redeye"
Cons: "We almost missed our connection and no concern, communication, or assistance from crew. They should allow close timed flights priority thru process."
Cons: "like i said above, i booked a ticket to milan but never got there. air canada or kayak screw up and made a route change. i ended up in frankfurt germany."
Cons: "Flight took off over 3 hours late. Worst part was online check in on United website wouldn't work 24 hours before the flight. So when we got to the airport they didn't confirm we could actually get on the flight because it was oversold until 7:30pm, 2.5 hours after our scheduled flight. We arrived to a wedding 15 mins before the place closed."
Pros: "was forced to spend the night in Toronto because Air Canada didn't seem to know that there would be a huge crowd at the airport that evening. I was told as I exited my flight that I would not make the connecting flight and I had to spend the night in Toronto. I will never fly Air Canada again"
Pros: "Decent leg room"
Cons: "Everyone confused about the aisle seats. Took much longer to find proper row."
Cons: "You take my money for nothing yu stolen my money why why you kayak my husband doesn't travel from Desmoines he is not in system why ????? bring my money back to my account aa"
Cons: "They could have told me more than 24 hours before my flight that they changed me to a different flight 4 hours earlier in the day!"
Cons: "On time arrival."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Not able to change our seat and I understood checked bag per person was included. The charged me 120 for two bagd"
Cons: "No apologies for being delayed. More than 4 hours. No explanation. Nothing. Awful service."
Pros: "Delays were clearly communicated with ample time to make changes if necessary"
Cons: "TEEEEENY WEENY itty bitty plane - hard to be comfortable- but fortunately it was a short flight"
Cons: "Missed this flight due the delayed previous glight"
Pros: "it was ok.. but I like to flight with Lufthansa more"
Cons: "I bought the flight from Lufthansa, but at the end was a United Plane.."
Cons: "I had to check my carry on from DEN to DSM because flight was full which I was told I could pickup at gate.. at the gate the TSA agent was very rude to me as I was confused as where my bag was, which I had to to baggage claim."
Pros: "The crew on the flight was very nice and I like that they fed us multiple times."
Cons: "When at the boarding gate, the staff forced me to check my carry on because they said it was “too big”. But I was on a flight before hand that was much smaller and it fit in the overhead space there. When I try to tell them that it fit in the last plane and I fit it in the example been, they still made me check it. I believe they just picked me out for no reason. It was ridiculous and the lady was very rude. The crew on the flight was very nice and I like that they fed us multiple times. Also, the flight was very cold. Even with the blanket and cardigan, we could never get warm."
Pros: "Boarding seemed smother than usual. I had an issue with a large back pack that wouldn't fit in the overhead due to a smaller plane travelling to Houston from Des Moines, Flight attendant was extremely helpful as it was expensive camera equipment and was able to stow it so that i didn't have to check it at the door. Most appreciated their sensitivity."
Cons: "The United crew really needs an attitude check. How can someone be angry at 6 am?"
Pros: "I have flown with untied twice now within a 1 month period and haven’t had one delay. Each time I flew from EWR to MXP I had on time and early flights. Anything from boarding to taking off has been on time and smooth."
Cons: "Economy seats need better cushion on the bottom of the seat. It’s brutal trying to sleep."
Pros: "The flight was great! The captain came out to greet everyone before we boarded the flight. it was a smooth ride and we got to milan sooner than expected! Can't get any better then that."
Cons: "The crew wasn't that nice. One lady in particular was extremely rude! I would cringe every time I heard her response to a customer. Her attitude was nasty and it seemed that she was in a rush to just get everything over and get off the plane. I wish I would've gotten her name because the others were great, but she didn't seem to be happy."
Cons: "The plane was not at the airport on time and when it caused us to miss the flight they blamed the weather instead of the plane not being at the airport on time. They were rude and refused to give hotel vouchers."
Cons: "This airline is the worst. Newark is also the worst airport in America..A match made in hell"
Pros: "Flight left right on time and arrived to the destination early - which was great because i had an extremely short layover"
Pros: "Decent room on the flight. No food or drink."
Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Pros: "Paid fee for exit seats. Plenty of room."
Cons: "Exit doors have a draft, not informed ahead when booked. Very chilly with 2 blankets."
Pros: "Everybody was so friendly"
Cons: "Flight delayed over 4 hours. When I spoke to the person at he gate when we had to deboard, She was patient in explaining but didn't seem like she wanted to answer my questions in front of everyone else. I walked over to the United customer service desk. Wow. No sense of empathy whatsoever. They gave me the answers to my questions but I almost felt like I had done wrong asking what my options were. Never had an issue with Lufthansa. United customer service is a different story. I will try my best to avoid Lufthansa flights operated by United from now on."
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Everyone was super nice and gelpful"
Pros: "Quick and easy. Nice crew."
Pros: "I was treated wonderfully and had an amazing times."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Attitude of gate agent, crews. Boarding penalizes all but highest level and they've demoted me since the merger and erased my 30 year history with UAL. Watched them mishandle a paraplegic passenger until another passenger swapped seats. Last choice for me."
Cons: "Tight seats, full flights"
Pros: "The pasta dinner was good, the seats still had in-screen entertainment, and we got 2 seats together by ourselves!"
Cons: "The very back of the plane. United must have changed the type of plane as our seat assignments didn't make sense. Thankfully, we were able to change them when checking in at Newark airport."
Pros: "The crew worked quickly to get me another flight when I was not gonna make my connection flight."
Cons: "The plane malfunctioned and their time management of telling us when it was gonna be fixed was poor."
Cons: "Crowded, overbooked, made me check my carry on which made me miss my train. Took 4 flights to get to my final destination. Small seats, uncomfortable... list goes on and on"
Cons: "Seat did not recline! My bags did not arrive for 3 days. I had nothing and all i eanted to do was shower after an 18 hr trip."
Cons: "Cancelled flight. No true explanation. Lack of detail and delay caused me to miss other flight opportunities."
Cons: "The airplane needed to be swapped, which caused an hour delay and made me miss my flight"
Pros: "I loved it"
Pros: "Staff was ok."
Pros: "At least I made it"
Cons: "Flight attendant for United 426 to Chicago was rude, flight delayed and they weren't very helpful"
Cons: "Lack of updates"
Pros: "Everything's on time"
Cons: "The snack"
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: "Could not get seats together with my daughter even though checked in on-line exactly 24 hrs. prior to flight. No 2 seats together in economy. How can all the seats be taken so quickly? Seems like the airline is just trying to "force" passengers to upgrade their seats to get more money."
Pros: "On the trip from Des Moines to Houston, timeliness of flight was great. The boarding went smooth and was done quickly. The crew were friendly and courteous. Overall the first half of the trip was fine."
Cons: "I was extremely disappointed in the condition of my luggage when I picked it up plane side. The wheel was broke off and all the pockets had been unzipped and it appeared they had been rummaged through. I had to drag my bag through the terminal. I spoke with 3 individuals with United who referred me onto the next and each unwilling as the previous to help. I myself am in customer service and would never treat my customers the way I was treated by the employees representing your Airline. I would go above and beyond to make the sure that the customers experience was a great one in spite of the unfotunate incident so they would return. I have never flown United before, and I will not consider your airline in the future."
Cons: "I paid extra money for our seats so we cud sit together N I ended up on the front of the plane N my boyfriend clear in the back I'll never fly United again y the hell did I pay almost 25$ per seat to sit together to sit on opposite ends of the plane"
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!"
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."
