Snow storms at Chicago Not the fault of the company But nightmare experience
Appreciate pilot getting us there safely in suboptimal weather. Flight crew was friendly and professional. Plane was late duel to problem refueling, something I don't think the airline had any control over. Unfortunately, the flight arrives very late as scheduled, and we arrived even later, adding to an already very long travel day.
It would have been much better if the plane actually departed. The flight was canceled, so it took me about 36 extra hours to get home
Short haul flight. Not much comfort given, not much needed.
This trip, coming back to Las Vegas (from Yerevan to Frankfurt to Las Vegas) turned out to be HORRIBLE and it was an absolute NIGHTMARE! Shame on Lufthansa! The leg from Yerevan to Frankfurt was cancelled and delayed for about 10 hours, but the worst part was that we didn't get any notification of the 10 hour delay until the last hour or two, but by that time we were at the airport at around 2am. We are a total of 6 passengers (me and my 5 kids between ages 2 and 17), so I ended up dragging the kids back to the hotel for 10 hours then we went back to the airport again. But the nightmare didn't end there! Then as we arrived in Frankfurt, our next leg of the flight to Las Vegas had already flown obviously, and so we missed it because of the delay in Yerevan. Now, Lufthansa says that there are no other flights or seats for a party of 6. Now they gave us this 3 leg flight, which takes off the next day, Frankfurt to Seattle to Los Angeles to Las Vegas, which is going to take 24 hours - if not more, instead of our straight 1 leg flight Frankfurt to Las Vegas, which was only going to be an 11 or 12 hour flight. This was a trip from hell so far, and the trip to Las Vegas hasn't ended yet. Who knows how many delays we will encounter during this 3 leg flight. There were just as many problems with Lufthansa's flights going to Yerevan in the first place, and these are just the problems coming back to Las Vegas, because this survey is only asking how was your trip back to Las Vegas from Frankfurt. This was our first trip with Lufthansa, and it will definitely be our very last flight with Lufthansa!
Late. Late to leave. Late to arrive. Left sitting on the tarmac. Same as the departing flight. Lufthansa is awful.
Pros: "The punctuality and the entertainment"
Cons: "Perhaps a more organized boarding process"
Pros: "You can charge your phone on the flight. Got snacks on each flights"
Cons: "the food options"
Pros: "Great customer service!"
Pros: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight was short but pleasant."
Cons: "The long lines. After check in and security, boarding could have involved less of a standing and waiting, with a bit of ahead communication that could be attained. For instance indicate the order of boarding, time until boarding, and place where the passengers from rows 50-70 should form ia line..."
Pros: "The crew was very good and we were right on time."
Cons: "Seats are small and cramped. Food was tasteless. Entertainment equipment did not work well, slow and kept locking up."
Pros: "Barcelona airport is beautiful. The Chechen in staff was helpful and arranged wheelchair assistance for all legs of my flight"
Cons: "We requested extra leg room seats on the bulkhead. We did not get them which was not a big deal on this leg of the flight but on the flight from Frankfurt to SFO which was 10+ hours, was miserable"
Pros: "The aircraft was great. A bit wobbly on take off and landing, but overall spacious and comfortable seating. The seats had many position options which was amazing. Meal service tableware was clean and pleasant to use. Food was also great. Also a very wide selection of entertainment options! Also, good flying from the pilot’s crew. Flight was on time."
Cons: "The servicing crew in the business cabin was inexperienced and unrefined. The flight attendants seemed to just want to “get it over with” with questions like “are you done?” The attendants wanted to take our drink order as soon as we got in without giving us a chance to settle into our seats and kept hovering over us until I had to ask her to give us a couple of minutes. The airline did not stock enough snack and ran out mid flight. We had to wait for the next meal service which was not fun. I ended up getting a sweet drink just to get by. Internet, which was paid, was so slow that I got tired of watching it trying to load the pages and gave up. Eventually, the connection completely stalled even though I still had over an hour remaining of the 4 hour package. I used maybe an hour of the total purchase. Total waste because I couldn’t get any work done. Overall, I did not think this was an experience worth a business class ticket."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "1. There was no beverage service before the meal - that's new to me (travelled 4x around the globe, mostly with LH 2. It took 3 people to open the meal seal with the plastic knife ... 3. You need a written contact with your neighbor about the foot placement - space is so narrow, you need to take turns if you would like to come off the plane without back injuries 4. New custom: serve coffee AFTER breakfast 5. Nobody walked around with water or juice between the meals - you had to wake your neighbor since climbing over someone is no longer possible [either] 6. If you have 2 beverages on your tray and your neighbor needs to get out, you need a third person to assist (impossible to get out of your seat with 2 beverages in your hands (we tried it!) - just too narrow (even for a European Teenager) 7. It was not clearly visible who boards where. An Economy couple standing patiently in line at the Wong boarding line was sent back to the end of the long economy line - although NOBODY was in the business line"
Cons: "You lost my luggage !!"
Pros: "Crew nice. Plenty of food"
Cons: "Boarding was very chaotic. Very long lines and not managed well"
Pros: "Service was excellent. Amenities excellent. Food good. Entertainment system very good!"
Cons: "In business class the room for feet was too narrow. One of our seats had the metal framing in middle of my back bothersome."
Cons: "Because my first flight took off late, my luggage didn't make it on this flight. It was not waiting for me at customs and I didn't get it until several days later."
Cons: "It was cancelled and I had to wait in line for over one and a half hours to speak with someone to find a solution."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Food, service"
Cons: "Reassigned seat due to equipment change resulted in seating in row 51 vs. reserved row 20"
Pros: "Clean plane. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Worst selection of movies."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Good crew member little little bit uptight but expected. Efficient and on time"
Cons: "Need to upgrade mefia hardware to 21st century."
Pros: "Kayak had good e emails with updates and reminders. Lufthansa was a great suorline for its care of its passengers."
Pros: "Clean plane, efficient boarding but that's it"
Cons: "Lights in cabin are turned off too late for overnight flight Boring entertainment program with obscure movies and TV series no one outside Germany knows Food uninspired and served too late for overnight flight, why is there anyway food for an 830 flight, people want to sleep not eat Crew announcements neither informative nor in anyway of interest"
Pros: "The food was great."
Cons: "There isn't much leg room."
Pros: "I love the comfort and the space in the airplane"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and efficient, and the entertainment system was modern."
Cons: "The pilot didn't get us over the intercom even once. No communication at all from the cockpit. Staff was ok, but not very friendly. Seats were very close together in my row (30)… but other rows had seats with more legroom m."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and helpful"
Cons: "The person sitting next to me on my right side was disrespectful and putting his head and legs up on my seat even after I told him not to do that and even spoke with the flight attendant. I felt uncomfortable with his behavior and the way it was managed by just telling him not to do that. I asked for a different seat but wasn't moved. For the price I paid for the seat and his behavior of taking up my spot and the empty spot in between us (he took up 2 chairs because he was laying down to sleep) I was very disappointed and uncomfortable during the flight."
Cons: "The delay after boarding in Lisbon"
Pros: "My departure from Munich was late but overall I am satisfied with my flying experience with Lufthansa, great job."
Cons: "The flight to Frankfurt from San Francisco (operated by United Airlines) was pretty bad. The outlets for charging phones and computers were out of service in my row, the wifi was inoperative for the entire flight, the entertainment system seized up every 10-15 seconds. The accessories were entirely neglected. It was rather pathetic in that regard, and the food was gross."
Pros: "The plane was parked away from the gate. We boarded the service bus to get there 20 minutes before departure time. But it took more than 20 minutes while mid way waiting for clearance to leave for the plane. The service bus did not turn on the AC while we waited even though we complained. We were suffocating. There was no entertainment on the plane."
Pros: "great service! right on time! very polite staff! will fly with them again!"
Pros: "Never made it. Flight overbooked, late connection in. Hours to wait for help. Finally rebooked o arrive over 24 hours late. Hotel an meals provided, no compensation on site."
Pros: "there was ice cream for dessert at night"
Cons: "- Delay > 2 hours and no info at gate at the time of planned boarding - unfriendly ground staff and chaotic check in - old 747, "entertainment 1970s standard - crew looked unkempt (like just out of bed), unfriendly to downright rude, my 85 year old mum was ignored repeatedly and ended up not getting enough fluids as a result - 1/8 crew members managed a smile on occasion - rushed meal "service", all they wanted was to disappear to sleep - crammed spaces - while it was announced "we have three different meal choices, you will have at least two choices" - ummm, no, it was pasta. Period. To be fair the pasta turned out ok. The morning dry ham and cheese bun was not, especially without any drink."
Pros: "flight attendants were polite and there were two meal services."
Cons: "The flight was full and the seats were extremely close together with little room. When the person in front of me leaned back I had no room and it was hard to see the movie screen."
Cons: "No notification to us, we found out through the news as we were checking in 24 hours prior. Thrived calling Lufthansa - their message actually told me to call back. When I tried to go online, our booked flight didn't even show up to change or cancel. Booked another flight from another city (Amnsterdam) at my own expense. Expect compensation from Lufthansa."
Pros: "Both of our connecting flights were delayed thereby causing us to miss our final flight to LA. Now we are back in Munich where we started, waiting for a flight tomorrow."
Cons: "That we were told on the flight from Düsseldorf to Frankfort we would make our connecting and after running from Terminal A to Z, and seeing the plane on the Tarmac, we were told we were too late. And then the service associate at the Frankfort Lufthansa was incredibly rude, unhelpful and inaccurate."
Pros: "They know what they're doing!!"
Cons: "No complaints at all!"
Cons: "Flight delay for over an hour with United"
Pros: "The crew did really well in serving everyone. They were polite, helpful and on the go from the time we boarded until the time we landed."
Cons: "The greatest issue I have has to do with the state of Gatwick which is now under construction. Air conditioning was not available at our gate nor the seating area. We stood at our gate for a long time before being processed so that we could enter the seating area for the flight. We went from hot to hotter prior to boarding."
Cons: "I could not make it to flight due to health problems. I was refused to be given another date for the flight."
Cons: "The 45 minutes between flights was too short. there is no way this is feasible given that we had to go through passport control. Kayak should NOT have recommended this combination of flights. We almost missed the flight to Chicago."
