Information over the speaker system was shared in German, English, and sometimes French. Individual TV screen was nice. Good smooth flight. Boarding and deboarding were painless, even in economy."
Cons: "Economy seats a little too close together for a long flight. However, economy seating was comfortable. If possible, sharing information about where to locate customs in the arrival airport, would be a nice addition."
Pros: "However the connecting time for MUC to HEL was bit more."
Pros: "Smooth and quick ride."
Cons: "There was a metal rod situation under the seat in front of me, which meant my bag wouldnt even fit, not to mention my legs. Also, I am not the biggest fan of flying and I started feeling sick at the end of the flight - kept it to myself but asked the flight attendant if I could have 2 sparkling waters and an orange juice (just to have it in front of me when I need it and not to bother anyone). I received what I asked for with an eye-roll and a shocked face. Just be nice - that's all."
Cons: "I used to reserve seats without fees, but Lufthansa airlines requested a fee when I tried to reserve seats in advance."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "The crew seemed not to Americans, funny is that I'm not even one just speak English well, rude!"
Pros: "great attitude from the crew"
Cons: "food was just ok"
Pros: "New plane, A340-600, surprisingly comfortable and spacious in Economy. Good entertainment system with plenty of movies, mix bag of new and old. 2 meal served which were okay, nothing special, but can't complain."
Pros: "Lost of empty seats this flight, so much more enjoyable to fly. Crew attentive. Weather good, very little turbulence. Dinner surprisingly tasty for arline food. I don't use any of the offered entertainment options, so no opinion."
Cons: "The individual monitors on all the seats are automatically "on". Would be nice if the screens at the empty seats could have been manually or automatically turned to the off position. The lights glowing from all those seatbacks lit up the cabin to a certain extent, making it harder to nap."
Pros: "The food and the movies."
Cons: "Our initial flight was delayed by 2 hours and some, we lost the connecting flight from Munich to Cluj-Napoca, had to stay in the Munich airport for 12h, being very tired, hungry, having a terrible flu and fever, extremely pissed off, your personnel who did not tell us there was a relaxing area or that we were supposed to get food vouchers. The plane should've been checked and ready on time,and certainly not after some passengers boarded it. The new plane they switched it with was not properly cleaned, plus we had no earphones. One of the flight attendants was constantly passive-aggressive. I did not appreciate that at all. The tickets issued at Newark had no gate assigned for our connecting flight and with the delay and everything, more time was wasted with finding that. The boy who rebooked us for the next flight did not assist with anything, did not tell us about vouchers. after finding out about that, I was disappointed for receiving 12€ for 12h=one sandwich and one 0.5lt of mineral water. Seriously? It was not my fault that this happened. I expected better from Lufthansa."
Pros: "best airline I have EVER taken. Lufthansa service is amazing: professional and the planes are super comfortable. I never want to take another airline again."
Cons: "Boston Logan airport had just one de-icer for all those planes! Please criticize the airport for lousy service. It delayed flight for 2 hours and made many people miss connections in Munich. Also don't like taking bus to plane for boarding."
Pros: "Liked the toilets downstairs. Good selection of entertainment. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "When I checked in I was told that I could take my suitcase, which is a carry-on size suitcase, on board. While boarding I was made to check it as luggage and told it was to big and too heavy even though it weighed 12kg."
Cons: "Flight took off from Zurich on time. Circled Munich for 45 minutes then went to Lintz (??), tiny little airport in Austria. LH said it was due to icy conditions, however, looking at the airport website, no evidence of any other flights being delayed. Was this plane even suitable for the flight? Then put on a bus and driven to Munich - 5 hours! On my way to LA, so then put on a flight to Mexico City leaving at 11pm, to connect with flight that would finally arrive into LAX at 2pm. So, over 24 hours from Zurich airport to LAX. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Some members of the crew were very nice and attended well to our need."
Cons: "Boarding process was terrible. One flight attendant was clumsy when pouring hot tea and hot drops landed on my wife hands."
Pros: "On time and clean"
Cons: "Small amount leg room"
Pros: "Lufthansa did the rebooking."
Cons: "I'm still waiting to fly out to Chicago, but now via Frankfort. I've lost a day from work and I'll have to pay an additional parking day at the O-Hare airport since I hadn't picked up my car at the predicted time. I'm not sure at this moment whether I'll have to pay some penalties for this. I'm really worried. Really."
Pros: "overall very good for a short haul flight gate area in Frankfurt - complimentary newspapers & coffee"
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The check-in lady was extremely rude to me and my father, then half the customers were left behind because the wrong gate was put on the board at the airport. Since no one was in my row the flight was very comfortable, but then they forgot to give my my vegetarian dinner and then forgot to give me breakfast and several drinks. They were not apologetic at all and were very rude to me when I asked for my breakfast and drink. Traveling is already stressful. No need to make it worse."
Pros: "Great in every way except at the end when there was no wheelchair."
Cons: "Upon arrival at Munich, I and a clearly handicapped gentleman were led on foot to an elevator and then to a golf cart. There should have been a wheelchair, at least for him. But it got worse...see my next flight."
Pros: "Do you know what it is like for a vegetarian gluten free person to order gluten free vegetarian and not get it? We confirmed by phone in advance and yet no such meal was provided. If Lufthansa does have such a meal they should say it at the time if reservations. Obviously someone didn't care enough."
Cons: "Do you know what it is like for a vegetarian gluten free person to order gluten free vegetarian and not get it? We confirmed by phone in advance and yet no such meal was provided. If Lufthansa does have such a meal they should say it at the time if reservations. Obviously someone didn't care enough."
Cons: "Despite we had reserved it seems that baby bassinet had not been recorded! Luckily we could move to a row where there was nobody but still it was a big hassle"
Pros: "The entertainment provided was very good. WE had our choice of first run movies along with many old time favorites."
Cons: "Not much room! I was in a center seat and was crowded in on both sides. As I was seated, my elbows were were about 12 inches apart in front of my chest. At the person relaxed in front of me, the screen I was watching was right in my face..."
Pros: "Free meal on short trip Efficient Quick Nice staff"
Pros: "plain was almost full and were no space for hand lagguage so we have to put it under seat in ftonr of us, but since there is less space in the end we put our legs on our begs...totaly unconfortable !!!"
Cons: "lower your prices, we do not to pay for your losses because of so much strike in 2015th year...for 200 euro we have to pay luggage 30 euro?! WTF?! i will next time rather fly with lowcast beacuse there is no difference except in price."
Pros: "crew and comfort"
Cons: "food not multi choices"
Cons: "Food was disgusting and cold. Charging for lugagge. Flights where 2h delayed. Had to run on LH transit vans as the plane was almost leaving"
Cons: "birding a lttle faster would be good"
Cons: "We were sitting next to a bathroom on night flight"
Pros: "Entertainment in economy"
Cons: "My flight got diverted to a location of Lufthansa's preference rather than the closest one."
Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "The first leg was delayed because of snow and I missed the connecting flight."
Pros: "Great aircraft and much better entertainment than Lufthansa has had in the past."
Pros: "Overall flying experience was good"
Cons: "It was a morning flight but check in counters were very less and as s result there was long queue. For a morning flight when the passengers get up almost at wee hours to report to airport , the check in should be faster so that they get some time before boarding for a cup of tea or coffee."
Pros: "nothing. Niente!"
Cons: "They don't fly at all! Non mi piace, quando pianifico il viaggio e poi loro non partono! Vergogna!!!!!"
Cons: "Lufthansa struck when I tried to fly from Kansas City to Napoli Italy on September 08, 2015. I was delayed four days. It took me 5 hours to rebook my flight. Then when returning to Kansas City on November 12, 2015, they had another strike. This time I was forced to purchase 3 days of motels and expenses. It took me 6 hours of making phone calls to rebook my flight. I kid $100 extra to choose my seats since I have PTSD from 24 months straight in Iraq. I panic when I feel confined. So I choose my seats carefully. And now on both trips, Lufthansa chose my seats for me. Just pisses me off all the way around."
Pros: "Food, wine, service, on-board entertainment"
Cons: "Not enough legroom. Had to pay extra to choose seat with companion."
Pros: "The magazine provided on board were unexpectly interesting! Even though it was a short flight sandwich and drink were provided and were delicious!"
Cons: "it was a small plane so there weren't too much comfort or place to put our luggages but these are minor problems."
Pros: "The blanket. little miss sunshine movie"
Cons: "there weren't that many movies/tv shows. all your "comedy" movies shouldn't be the hangovers."
Cons: "Boarding would be better if they started boarding the back of the plane and then move forward"
Cons: "There was a person named " Ali " at the SFO International airport who was extremely rude and insulting towards women. His manner of conversation and attitude towards how he checked in my hand luggage without allowing me any time to take a few important items 30 min prior to boarding the flight at the gate was just not acceptable. He insulted another non-english speaking woman in front of me which was appalling. I would highly discourage such managers to be leaders representing Lufthansa as it tarnishes both your brand and is just not acceptable to be disrespectful to your customers when you're primary business is Hospitality."
Pros: "The crews were awesome and very friendly professional"
Pros: "I almost missed my next flight from Dublin to Chicago. There was not enough time between flights with current security measures. Your site should not have suggested those two flights so close."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Can't complain."
Cons: "The information at boarding time was hard to understand, even coffee was a charge, they didn’t have our stroller at the gate when we got off then when we got to baggage claim it was still hard to find."
Cons: "The flight was perfect, easy on, easy off, on time, smooth comfortable flight."
Cons: "Late - again!"
Cons: "They lost our luggage and we can't reach anyone who can help us find it. The customer service people are very unhelpful"
Pros: "Flight was fast."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been better organized. For example by seat number like other airlines do. Having everyone board at once was a bit disoriented."
Pros: "Seat was fine ! I was very thirsty and no free water.."
Cons: "Free drink/ water !!!"
Pros: "Take off and landing was so smooth."
Pros: "Great crew and food! Loved the comfort."
Cons: "The selection of movies could be better. There wasn't a lot to choose from."
Pros: "We loved this land of green but especially the good people. Aer lingus staff everywhere treated us with kindness and necessary help. Already plannng on returning. They only slight problem was that it was difficult to hear the pilot because of poor speakers. But the crew was wonderful."
Pros: "Pleasant cabin crew"
Cons: "Disembark down steps at back of plane onto tarmac then carry bags up two flights of steps, tiring and dangerous of falling"
Pros: "Crew members, pilots, food, entertainment."
Cons: "Couldn’t pre print boarding passes."
Pros: "The pretzels."
Cons: "The customer service from Aer Lingus is the worst ever. This is our honeymoon and it got ruined. The flight was 3 hrs delayed, and they started rerouting people that had connection flights to London, we had a connection and randomly Wendy the service agent decide to not reroute us because we had plenty of time, of course we didn’t make the flight, we have been hostages of Aer Lingus for the last 21 hrs so far, but more will be added until we make it to Hamburg tomorrow at noon instead of tonight at 8."
Cons: "I was wondering, why my stuff in my suitcase were wet,?I have to give all clothes to laundry"
Cons: "Dublin airport was very confusing! Inconsistent information about gate and flight details in the monitors - was stressful enough that flight was delayed"
Cons: "Delayed, they even charge for water, no entertainment"
Cons: "40 minutes late taking off. I had 21.7 kgs (1.7kg over the limit) in my bag and had to pay €20 more and that as an Aer Club member."

Pros: "New and very comfortable aircraft."
Pros: "Flight was ok."
Cons: "No free food or drink service."
Cons: "In approaching an attendant to purchase a beverage we were abruptly informed that they were on a break and go to the forward cabin."
Pros: "Aer Lingus does a fantastic job with everything. They are fast and efficient and super hospitable."
Cons: "I always wish I had a bit more room."
Pros: "Ample legroom"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding was comical. This was the one place in the airport where there is no attempt to establish a queue area. I don't get it. Plane audio for pilot and crew announcements was poor. Nobody could hear what was being announced. Entertainment audio was very poor - which on a long flight can make a big difference. Even tried my own earbuds and it did not help."
Pros: "We felt like we were flying in a cheap local airlines."
Cons: "The seats, the food."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room. Friendly staff. Decent meal. Reminds me of how the airlines used to act."
Pros: "Food was good, individual entertainment system was good."
Cons: "Cramped spaces"
Cons: "Only tap water was complimentary."
Pros: "They were helpful on the ground, though some of the crew were cold on the plane, not unhelpful, but not helpful"
Pros: "It was a simple layover!"
Pros: "I had much admiration for the 2 sets of parents of 2 screeching babies who were basking in total oblivion as to the aggravation their little bundles of joy were creating among the 100 other passengers. To be that insensitive to others is quite a feat. What could they have done, you ask? When my children got unruly on flights (very rarely) my wife whisked them off to the bathroom until they were calm. It's what responsible parents do. Not sit and smile at you. And when we reached Munich, we waited more than a half hour for luggage that came in spits and spurts... It was the perfect final flourish to a miserable 12 plus hours on your airline. I'm thrilled at the prospect of my return to LA next week and what surprises may be in store for me!"
Cons: "It was mercifully short..."
Cons: "BA used to feel like luxury travel. Now they just feel like any run-of-the-mill budget airline. Felt nickeled & dimed from start to finish. Staring with being asked to pay $39 if I wanted to preselect my seat. My friend and I chose the free option of selecting our seats 24 hours before the flight--her luggage didnt even make in on the plane! It was finally delivered at 2:00 AM the next morning; well past the 8:00 PM promised delivery, which caused us to lose an entire eveing in Paris. On the return flight, home, she was told there wasn't even a seat for her on the plane. I failed to add that after booking and paying for her flight, they cancelled and deleted the SFO to London leg of the flight without so much as notifying her via email, phone, or text. Mind you, the London to Paris leg was not cancelled. Had we not tried to pre-book our seats, she would never have known they had cancelled her flight. What impacted her, impacted me, so needless to say, neither of us will ever fly BA again! BTW, their online customer service representatives were very nasty to deal with."
Cons: "It was like squeezing everyone into a cattle truck and airport crew double book seats of a few passengers on a full flight so there was confusion on board"
Pros: "Boarding went really smoothly and everything was on time."
Cons: "No free beverages, not even water!"
Pros: "This plane was more comfortable. Leg room was better. Seats were larger."
Cons: "Was surprised that you had to pay for coffee or other drinks."
Pros: "The staff was generally pleasant (except for one attend on the SFO-Dublin flight. The lunch and dinner were very good (desserts as well were better than on other airlines I have flown). There was a good selection of movies."
Cons: "The seats on the trip Dublin to SFO were a bit cramped. I wasn’t able to lean my seat back as the passenger behind me asked me not to because his knees were already touching the back of my seat. The web check in was prone to error. For both legs I had to start the web Checkin at least twice. I also got an error page when I tried to print my boarding pass. I do’s not find a way to add my boarding pass to my iphone’s wallet."
Pros: "The crew actually talked to us. Food was good and frequent. Lots of entertainment."
Cons: "Seats still suck."
Pros: "The seats were incredibly comfy."
Cons: "They kept the cabin lights on throughout the entire flight, so it was impossible to sleep. My rating for entertainment and food is not really applicable because the flight was short and didn't have either."
Cons: "Baggage took 38 min. To come out"
Pros: "Food is poor!!! The vegetarian meals have no flavor"
Pros: "Great flight crew. Decent leg room in coach. Plenty of good free food on this long international flight."
Cons: "The flight departed over two hours late. There were no updates despite the promise of one at a specific time. Bad communication with passengers in gate area."
Cons: "Lost my luggage for two days. Follow-up on lost luggage was extremely poor. As far as plane flight: No place to charge phone on transatlantic flight. Charged for *all* food and drinks including 4 Euros for cup of tea! Plane was very late leaving, and very late arriving. Plane seats were significantly smaller than on other airlines' international flights. Can't see any reason to fly Aer Lingus again."
Pros: "The flight was so short that the food and entertainment part of this survey are. It applicable. They did serve food for purchase though and they had some good choices"
Cons: "All good and drink cost extra and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "All flight attendants were cheery & kind throughout the 8-hour flight."
Cons: "Only downsides were with Dublin airport/U.S. security, so not Aer Lingus's fault."
Pros: "The crew were the best very personable"
Pros: "Everything was great !"
Cons: "Seats to small and no leg room, inconsiderate passengers in front of us caused even more seat discomfort ."

Cons: "The flight was late more then 2 hours. I missed connection flight!"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable some of the crew were nice though not all"
Cons: "The food was horrible. Entertainment was limited. The boarding process is terrible. Staff needs to learn to smile more."
Pros: "No leg room"
Pros: "Roomier seats overall, the headrest screens and USB ports are great!"
Cons: "We paid extra for seats with more leg room and got the same as everyone else. Why the charge? Our departure was delayed. The plane had some sort of fragrance regularly coming thru the ventilation that irritated my sinuses and made me ill. The water for the only service on the flight (for coach anyway) was warm and tasted odd. Cabin temperature was too warm (multiple logical arguments can be made for cooler temps over warmer)"
Pros: "The crew and pilots were great"
Cons: "Dinner was just okay"
Cons: "we waited on the tarmac for a lengthy period of time in Toronto-we missed our connection as a result in Germany and there was little staff to help us get new reservations-we waited 7 hours and got a voucher for one meal-we missed a whole day in Europe"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "The food. The technical difficulties with entertainment. The red wine that landed on my clothes as the stained bottle was given to me"
Cons: "Significant delays in the flight. I seem to always have poor on time service with Air Canada. And not one apology, which is the least you would expect from a company in the service industry."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean seating. Good leg room. Complimentary beverage and snack. In-flight entertainment for a short leg is appreciated. Ear phones provided."
Cons: "Every time I fly with Air Canada there seems to be a problem. Either the flight is delayed or it is overbooked. Generally I try to avoid flying with this airline if possible."
Cons: "We arrived in Munich 40 minutes late and so we missed our connecting flight."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Flight took too long - missed my connection. Also a flight attendant wouldn’t let me use my Bluetooth headphones - she wouldn’t even let me use them while turned off as noise dampeners."
Pros: "The crew, the smooth safe flight, the cleanliness"
Cons: "The flight was delayed!! Very inconvenient."
Cons: "My baggage did not make the flight. It took 3 days to return it to me"
Pros: "We had a very good experience with Air canada and will use Air Canada again."
Cons: "Was late and crow Did not care abut passangers"
Pros: "TSA precheck"
Pros: "It was average"
Cons: "My connections were tight from the start. Then when the flight from Vancouver was late leaving, it caused me to come very, very close to missing my CVG connection. I had to find & clear customs before I could even go to my gate. Getting thru customs was like being in a maze. I showed my passport 4 times in the process & finally someone helped me to fill out the electronic form. I made it to my gate in the nick of time just as they were ready to close the door. They radioed ahead to let 2 more people on that plane. Then I get on and someone is sitting in the seat that I previously purchased. The flight attendant didn't make them move either. Air Canada's practices suck! I will never fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "The food was,nt S-o good,I requested chicken, that was'nt enough for all pasangers and I got pasta that had only tomato n-o parmegiano or cheese. At breakfest only banana bread that was very sweet, S-o I was desapointed. The chair in front of me was leaning on me because îți was broken The selecțion for movies on TV screen was very dificultate as the cursor didn't! responded to my movements"
Pros: "I actually flew through meontreal but it was a great flight and the salad was very good"
Pros: "Excellent staff and crew"
Pros: "Dinner was good, breakfast was meh."
Cons: "Air temp was hot. Food came with tons of plastic wrapping."
Cons: "Economy seats are very small and tight. Food is average at best. Crew is semi-friendly/"
Pros: "Again, nothing good stood out to me, although the entertainment was very good, with recent movies and music."
Cons: "I was late for this flight due to the delay from Baltimore to Toronto. I got a new flight with no problem, BUT the change messed up my travel plans because the arrival time to Athens was now later than before. We were additionally DELAYED 3 hours in Toronto."
Cons: "I was on AC A333 from YYZ to MUC. The audio system for my seat didn't work and made for a long flight. Lucky I had downloaded some movies from Nextflix to my mobile device. The only thing I was able to use is the flight tracker on my seat screen."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours and the flight was very noisy and the plane was badly maintained"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Touch screens were broken"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not comfortable at all, seats are too crowded, and cabin was way too hot!! Some ppl had to undress their babies..."
Pros: "Flight from STL to YYZ was unremarkable, which isn't a bad thing when it comes to air transportation. Bit of a delay leaving, waiting for de-icing trucks to show up and do their work, but I'm not sure that's Air Canada's fault."
Cons: "Nice flight"
Pros: "They had individual tv screens."
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants was rude. Aircraft configuration was tight and dirty."
Pros: "The food was airline food, the movies worked"
Cons: "Given customs form in German, when asked for English flight attendant said they were out. asked another later and she brought it immediately. After herded through security (again) and customs, with no explanation on what to expect, our connecting flight's gate was in the basement. It looked like a third world bus station. No place to sit, totally packed, could not understand announcements, only bagel place to eat that was out of most everything. I will avoid Air Canada and Toronto airport if at all possible."
Cons: "11 hour flight with no feasible entertainment options."
Pros: "It was great."
Cons: "Like to be able to pick my seat ahead of time without a charge."
Pros: "The fare was low."
Cons: "The incoming flight was two hours late, but AC did not notify us to tell us of the delay."
Pros: "The plane wasn't too bad; comfortable and plenty of movies to choose from; the only thing headsets and volum didn't work as well."
Cons: "Airport was a complete mess; I would say I will never fly out of Rome. Air canada wasn't too bad here since we didn't run into any issues with rebooking flights"
Pros: "I liked the streaming entertainment I enjoyed the friendliness of the crew I was pleased with the Canada air app allowing check-in and tracking of flight"
Cons: "The comfortability of the flight was poor. Both my wife and I were too uncomfortable to be able to sleep on out more than 9 hour flight. Leg room bad, seats uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight had good entertainment, decent food, good service, and it left on time. I've never been really impressed with Air Canada but they provide great value for the money as they have sort of become the budget airline of international travel without having a true "budget airline feel." I'll take a good flight to Tokyo with Air Canada for $1100 over an excellent flight to Tokyo for $1500 or $1600, or maybe more. I also like the option of having a long layover in Toronto or Montreal with Air Canada, as these are good cities to spend a few hours in. On the flight back from Tokyo, I had a nice layover in Toronto that lasted almost a day."
Cons: "The electronic/entertainment system went down for a about an hours so that was annoying. This only happened on the return flight but it was enough to create anxiety and make you wonder when it's going to come back on. Airline food is hardly ever much but it's pretty dull on Air Canada. It's not a bad idea to bring some of your own food and alcohol onto an Air Canada flight. The service was good but the stewards don't seem to enjoy their job as much as on some other airlines."
Pros: "Initially I chose Air Canada because the price was better than United. But the hassle was not worth it."
Cons: "Rouge plane was dirty. Flight attendants gave incorrect information regarding immigration forms that caused us problems after landing."
Pros: "Newer plane in good condition. Crew was good"
Cons: "Food was pretty blah"
Pros: "The 787 was amazing."
Cons: "I had to take two different flights connecting through London Heathrow to make this leg of the journey."
Pros: "Wonderful selection of in-flight entertainment! Great food, great service."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Plane arrived pretty much on time. Boarding was uneventful."
Cons: "Plane too low to use jetway at Pearson. Epic walk from US gates to immigration. Insufficient leg room if you're over 5'10", but that's how it is these days."
Cons: "need to use my peels ask for water -Never get it nasty smell from bathrooms"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "The flight was late"
Pros: "Fast & efficient"
Cons: "Crew was strangely inflexible about rules that I had not encountered before- being only in ticketed seat until at altitude (the flight was very empty), only specific headphones during takeoff & ascent, no headphones or electronic devices at all during final descent and landing."
Pros: "FOOD WAS DECENT"
Cons: "MISSING CONNECTION. BEING LATE GETTING TO OUR HOTEL IN PROVENCE."
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Cons: "Unable to choose seat"
Pros: "My original reservation was on Lufthansa and was changed to United Airline without our consent Very terrible and rude check in agent We were never told that we have to check our luggage out in Munich and check it back in for our final destination Since the layover is more than 12 hours Uncomfortable plane and very old it’s outdated tech and entertainment Very poor food quality and quantities"
Cons: "Nothing absolutely Nothing"
Pros: "Boarding went very well. Seats were good."
Cons: "We missed our next flight due to being called back to the gate for some cargo issues. Because we missed that flight we had to wait 3 hours for the next one which caused us to miss our bus reservation and ended up costing us about five extra hours in time. Staff was not very attentive."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Food was 100% carbohydrate. Not a trace of greens or protein. Our party was split up even though reservations were made long in advance. Codeshare on Air Canada"
Pros: "Outstanding service"
Pros: "Large plane. Cheerful Staff. Food was good as airline food goes. Power and video at every seat. And there was enough room for carry on bags."
Cons: "Seat didn’t really recline. Couldn’t sleep"
Pros: "Departed and landed on time; checked luggage returned in a relatively short period of time; crew pleasant; plane reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "In order to access the bus which took passengers to the plane required going down three flights of stairs and two flights up to the plane. This made carry on luggage and personal bag difficult."
Pros: "Seating was larger than normal for economy. Crew was pleasant and made lots of offers for food and drink. Flight was on time and the luggage arrived unharmed"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Attentive cabin crew and decent food/wine selection, but...."
Cons: "This format of business class seating leaves a lot to be desired. There is literally no place to store anything except maybe your cellphone on the shelf under the TV screen. No room for a backpack on the floor - has to be in the overhead. Not convenient on an 8-hour overnight. Seats are tight - could not lay on my back - had to sleep on my side. No separation between seats - it was a 2, 4, 2 layout and the guy next to me coughed all night. At least I wasn't in one of the middle seats. Expensive flight for that type of setup IMHO. And given it was a 777, the plane was big enough."
Pros: "Fewer seats more space for passengers and ample leg space The food was delicious"
Pros: "Flying business class is always exciting and fun and it was a relatively good deal..."
Cons: "... but when you pay $2000 + for a business class ticket and then the lose you luggage and it’s now 8 hours later and they have not located it yet... that’s not good!"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Even though we reserved well in advanced my wife and I got middle seats in different rows. Fortunately, we both got aisle seats (the last ones available) but of course in different rows when we signed in for our tickets."
Pros: "The service and welcoming"
Pros: "Winter storm commencement in Chicago during take off didn't daunt the pros piloting this Lufthansa flight. Smiling, courteous service, good food and wine along with space to rest has made Lufthansa my new go-to for flying to Europe."
Cons: "Economy seats mean tiny unresponsive video screens. Playing a game of Mah-jong on the in-flight screen is nearly impossible. Bring your own tablet"
Pros: "Boarding process, including ground crew was good with customer service. Food was good and in-par with other airlines."
Cons: "Flight crew, including a few air-hostesses were very rude. Entertainment system and the played films were very dull. Plane was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was great, friendly and helpful.Entertainment was decent, good movie selection"
Cons: "Meals - well let’s just say that not everyone enjoys bbq chicken and grits - mixed."
Pros: "Efficient crew. It"
Cons: "It was good overall."
Pros: "the fact that the flight arrived on time without delay and the gates were easy to locate."
Cons: "How on earth did my i arrived lagos and only one out of my two bags showed up, i have to extend my stay in lagos and hoping my bag will come the next day, i have to pay $100 extra just to extend my one night hotel booking to two nights."
Pros: "Service, food quality, profwssionalizem"
Cons: "Equipment. Very old. Seating inconvenient cand cramp."
Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly."
Cons: "Temperature was way too warm."
Cons: "Our plane was defective so had to be replaced. This is fine, I certainly am willing to wait for a new plane if it means not blowing up over the ocean. The problem was how little the attendants at the gate communicated the situation to us. What should have been a brief layover became a 12 hour nightmare. The gate attendants did finally issue meal vouchers but they waited until 10 minutes before all the restaurants closed and only issued $10 a person. This is enough to buy a hot dog at an airport... We were told there wouldn't be any rescheduling of missed connections until we were "airborne". This resulted in mass panic and confusion upon reaching our destination. We were told to go to the service desk, half an airport away, but once the entire passenger contents of the plane arrived at that far flung service desk, we were mostly turned away to seek help at individual gates. This lack of communication meant I missed the next next available connecting flight and now have a further six hour layover. I understand accidents happen and planes can break down but the nearly complete lack of care and customer attention is, frankly, disappointing. I've now had nearly an entire day added to my travel time. If I'd been willing to loose that time I would have paid $600 less for my ticket. United finally offered a token of their appreciation : a $100 e-voucher. I have spent more than that on food and coffee in airports for the past two days while trying to survive until my next connections."
Pros: "Crew and food."
Cons: "The old bait and switch. United is not and will never be Lufthansa. Cattle call seating."
Cons: "3 hour delay from washington to munich..missed my connecting flight and was booked on my flight to athens 12 hours later!!!!!"
Pros: "It was excellent all way) thank you."
Pros: "Flight attendants were good. Ours was German. United plane was old. Given old overnight care package (socks, toothbrush, etc.)."
Cons: "Check in at iah with united, is 1 star. Those people really hate their jobs. Never helpful."
Pros: "Clean, on time, professional crew."
Cons: "I wish there were more bathrooms available for the economy class."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The automation of the check in to print luggage tags Crammed seats in regular economy Malfunction of entertainment screen Food was awful and only beer and wine were for free"
Cons: "Temp inside plane was freezing cold. Pilot was asked 3 times to adjust. People were bundled up, hugging themselves and had blankets over their heads to try to stay warm. After third request to pilot, the temperature was set to so hot people were sweating and complaining. Typical United Airlines crew who think they are driving a cattle car"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and professional . Announcements were spoken clearly. It was a nice flight to be on. You could tell everyone was doing a good job."
Cons: "Nothing everything was good."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms. It is a real shame that United offers a grand total of 4 bathrooms for the entire economy class. People were always lined up! Compare with Lufthansa's A340 where you go downstairs and there are 7 bathrooms plus waiting space, where they also offer water, juice, chocolates, etc."
Pros: "Staff did its best even understaffed"
Cons: "The delay, bad food (all spicy)"
Cons: "Between delays, terrible good, missing connection flight, the accommodation for connection flight. All pretty poor experience"
Pros: "Others than below all good..."
Cons: "At LEAST 35% of the seats were empty..... it was a 11 hours flight and 5 hours after departure I tried to take a nape somewhere where there was no one sitting. After one hour, the flight attendance woke me up saying there is premium economy and I cannot stay there... had to return to economy. I'm a hit disappointed since It was a while after the take of and I was not taking anyone sit..."
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "First, our flight UA 194 was redirected back to SFO after 2 hrs of flight due to problem with weather sensor device or something of flight. Then we were cheated and provided with Economy class seat from FRA to MAA for the next day. We paid for full Business from SFO to India but our connecting flight was changed to Economy seat. Very very very poor and fraud technique from United crew. We are very sad about this and we will never ever take United or Lufthansa again. Never ever + we will request all our relatives to abandon these kind of cheaters."
Pros: "Food, entertainment"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable for economy class"
Cons: "Poor WiFi. Poor video. Very small seating"
Pros: "The crew we're very friendly and professional. They took the time to fix the plane instead of flying a plane that needed maintenance"
Cons: "My flight out of Houston was five hours late because of maintenance. This caused me to miss my connection. The rebooked connection was 5 hours after we landed and still my luggage did not make it. The rescheduled flight was supposed to arrive just after midnight, but because of lost luggage, I didn't get out of the airport until 2 am and missed my ride."
Pros: "Nothing in particular. The flight was "saved" by having a friendly fellow passenger sitting next to me. She was pleasant to talk to, but that had nothing to do with the services provided by United."
Cons: "Overall, I find United flights to Europe to be fairly unpleasant. Sometimes the staff can be nice. On this flight female staff with whom I interacted were nice, but the steward who was serving people near me seemed abrupt and largely uninterested in us. In fact he lectured an elderly woman about stowing her luggage for several minutes without realizing she did not understand him. The reason was she was Polish and did not speak any English. I had called out to him several times to tell him this, but he did not hear me. The seats on the flight were very cramped (I sat in 37G). By comparison, I found the seats in the Lufthansa flight I took from Munich to Tel Aviv to be much more spacious. In comparison to Lufthansa, I think United is a second class (or worse) airline."
Cons: "No meal on business, no free internet, no entertainment"
Pros: "Attendants were kind and helpful The food and drink provisions were good"
Cons: "A small problem with my seat back screen"
Pros: "Good service and environment"
Pros: "smooth flight, good service"
Cons: "hold up to board family with 2 much luggage, overhead bins 2 small"
Pros: "On-board WiFi was a nice touch, but redundant as there was no way to charge your electronic devices"
Cons: "Felt herded like cattle. Had to bring your own headphones... WTF? Children's meals requested for my 6-year-old were practically inedible. "Breakfast" consisted a stale, chewy croissant (which I believe I am still trying to digest a week later...) and yogurt. No USB port to charge electronic devices"
Pros: "The flight itself was great. Good movies, professional crew."
Cons: "The whole seating process was a nightmare. They didn't assign seats and when I tried to call first they said wait until 24 hours in advance or pay $100 THEN when I tried to check in 24 hours in advance they wouldn't assign seats bc the first leg was operated by United. They then said United couldn't assign seats at check in - only at the gate AND THEN the said they couldn't assign seats for our second leg because it was operated by Luftansa. It was ridiculous added stress on our honeymoon and my husbands first cross Atlantic trip. Made me never want to fly Luftansa/United transatlantic again (and I have been a milageplus card holder so that's saying something)"
Cons: "Luggage compartment too small even for a rolling laptop bag"
Pros: "I like the seats and the leg space .they were very comfortable ."
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Couldn't reserve/request a seat. Assigned to me About 1.5 hours prior to boarding. Had to wait Around the gate. Should have told me I would not have any choice. Could have walked around. Got a middle seat. It was a long flight."
