Tiny seats, very cramped for 11 hour flight, the food was terrible - only pasta option, full of grease, cheese and carbs, it tastes awful. No other choice. Tiny cups for water/drinks for over 11 hours of flying. Toilets felt dirty.
I choose Lufthansa cause it’s a good airline with great quality but this one was soo old and poor. Food was terrible. Blankets and pillows very old, looked like they were like used. The chairs were soo uncomfortable
I liked absolutely nothing about this. The worst airline I have ever dealt with. We missed our flight. As we were boarding the flight (we arrived well in advance) the flight attendant demanded a negative covid test. We were asked for vaccine cards at checkin, never a negative covid test. They asked us to rebook the flight, thus we missed our flight, had to book a hotel, all of our luggage was going straight to Miami so we have no change of clothes. An absolute nightmare. Next, I stood in line for OVER 2 hours to get on the next flight. They gave no apology or explanation as to the 2 hr wait, nor why we weren’t informed of the negative COVID test in advance. They then recommended a covid testing center in the airport that charged 169 euro a person. I refused and found another less expensive yet approved center. I will NEVER use this airline again, I will never recommend it and I will never come back to Germany. The entire Frankfort airport staff was wretched. Awful experience.
Pros: "Premium class is awesome. Nice size and comfortable seats with a foot rest. Food as tasty and hot. Attentive attendants."
Cons: "Honestly can’t think of anything!!"
Pros: "Uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "Seats, and helping passengers when they have delays"
Cons: "The seat didn’t recline and the entertainment didn’t work"
Pros: "The crew were truly great as I had an extremely difficult flight due to tremendous pain in my knees. Coach economy are way too narrow, even if I paid for preferred seating. A joke. Cldnt move. So uncomfortable."
Cons: "Boardingvwas delayed so we left a good 50 minute late. Ran out of meal choice so we had to eat what they had left which was pasta that was too spicy for me anyway. I was very disappointed bec I preferred chicken but there were none left."
Cons: "The travel has bien good"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and as far as airplane good goes, it was great."
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "Best company and the 380 is amazing."
Cons: "Passenger in next seat was so big that his fst hung over the armrest and he took up 3 to 4 inches of my space. Lufthansa should not let passengers this big fly in economy class. I appreciate my space in economy will be limited but I should be able to use all of my allotted space."
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "everything else food seats service ..."
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing everything was great!"
Cons: "The food was not good at all. The economy seats are uncomfortable and you should be able to walk around the plane, especially on a 9 plus hour flight."
Pros: "Excellent crew, provided beverages constantly, meals were very good for airplane food, seats were comfortable for most of the 9.5 hours. Entertainment selections were more than adequate. Even the babies were quiet !!!"
Cons: "TV screens did not function consistently, had to be reset a couple of times. Plane was late boarding (but made up most of the time). Had to go through security a second time even though it was a connecting flight. Luggage got crushed in a carousel pile-up and took a long time to come out."
Cons: "Need AC outlets and better WIFI"
Pros: "Lufthansa is an efficient operation."
Cons: "1. The comfort in economy class was insulting and horrible. I am 6'3", 175lbs and was trapped in one uncompromisingly uncomfortable position for 8+ hours. Torture is a word that comes to mind. If I were a smaller sized person, 5'8" or less, perhaps this may be acceptable, but for anyone over 6'. forget it. You must pay loads extra to be given a respectable seat. I am hopeful that I don't develop a blood clot from this flight. This lack of room is a seriously dangerous situation for many people on long-distance flights. 2. The seat recline feature added further insult to the mix. Once airborne, the lady in the seat in front of me sent her seat into what was left of any personal space or legroom I had. The video screen on the setback in front of me was literally 6" from my face now. Several people who were also of taller size complained, one was so adamant about retaining his space that he fought verbally with the lady in front of him, and eventually a stewardess had to be called. My wife complained on my behalf, and was able to get the lady in front of me to reposition her seat, but eventually, I noticed it somehow found its way back to recline again. I know Lufthansa is not alone with this predicament, but something HAS TO BE DONE to fix this huge problem with air travel. 3. The food on the flight to Germany was way better than the return trip. The meal consisted of mushy carrots, greasy mashed potato-like side, and a piece of OK chicken smothered in 'Murican BBQ sauce. I was insulted. Lufthansa had been better than this in the past. Oh, and the dinner roll was so dry and crumbly, it could have been weeks old. The snack before landing was called pizza, but I wouldn't call it that It was a bunch of tasteless dough, a little bit of tomato like sauce and a smattering of cheese. I wish Lufthansa would stick to what they do best; German-influenced food. Be true to who you are. Most people I know love German food, and I always have looked forward to LH food selections. Not now."
Pros: "The crew helped my mom very much with her ansiery and were with her at all times."
Cons: "I bought the flight for my mom and she is handicap, the flight got delayed and they wanted to leave her in Frankfurt for 2 days because there was no more flights to the States, in the end they found a flight to Washington DC, she was coming to Miami. She is an old woman who gets lost and I had to order assistance for her, in Washington DC they opened her bags after that they lost the bags, she had medication on them and it was a nightmare to get them back. Im really upset and I don’t think That I’m going to book with this aero line again."
Pros: "Where is my bag"
Cons: "Where is my bag"
Pros: "5 Star: Comfort 4 Star: Crew 5 Star: Boarding 5 Star: Entertainment 5 Star: Food.. One of the best flights of 2017 by far. Premium Economy will deliver the basics of luxury comfort."
Pros: "Caring staff, nice TV screens, good food."
Pros: "Nothing, really; the seats—even those in business class–have a no-frills design, with hardly any recline to speak of. Okay for flights as short in duration as this one (about 50 minutes)."
Cons: "The delay in boarding, much of which was due to the fact that the plane wasn't ready for boarding in time because the tech service was delayed. It would seem this was at least in part something within the sphere of factors the airline is able to control. Also, there was an irritating, rumbling noise, sounding almost like an old propeller engine, during much of the plane's ascent. You'd think there would be some maintenance necessary."
Pros: "The same"
Cons: "Nothing to be mentioned everything was good"
Pros: "The flight attendants were always friendly and attentive. No comparison to some other airlines I have flown with. Food was excellent and entertainment as well. Boarding went great especially when considering that the capacity of the plane is for 440 passengers."
Cons: "The seats are very close to each other, so when the person in front of me move their seat back I had to ask him not to."
Pros: "The crew was nice and boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and with few choices. Food was awful."
Pros: "Great movie options, relatively good food for an airplane."
Cons: "Booked way in advanced, paid extra to book upper deck on both; outgoing flight Miami - Frankfurt and return, but was bumped out of our seats. Spent 2 hours on the phone trying to book them again, and ended up on a lower deck on the Miami - Frankfurt flight, but re-booked on the upper deck on Frankfurt- Miami flight although not the side seats as I originally booked myself, but in the middle section. The entertainment's touch screen system is inadequate, not reacting to touch efficiently."
Pros: "I was able to squeeze back into Comfort Economy and make my destination, after a messed up miles upgrade - have to be grateful for the small things, right?"
Cons: "I was actually upgraded to Business Class through a LH miles award, however, that upgrade was not honored, despite the fact that I had a confirmation email from them. I had to first get to Frankfurt to even negotiate this problem. At the departure point, LH was unable to furnish me a boarding pass to my NY flight. After racing though the huge airport at max speed to make this connection, I was treated rudely at the gate in Frankfurt by LH short tempered ground staff, to the point of even being accused of being the source of the problem and being late for boarding (when I was only accorded an hour connection through this booking, and raised this concern with LH prior). Lastly, the ground crew took away my connecting flight boarding pass and nearly forgot to give me back my luggage tag. The flight crew was Ok, but just did a bare minimum to keep up with the packed and overbooked flight. To top of the joy, I got food poisoning after landing in NYC - not all food they serve was in sealed containers, and it must have been enough to cause a day of misery that followed my arrival - I can assure you that the late time and taxing and docking delays in NYC took away any opportunity to have a normal dinner, and LH food was all I had all day... Not the usual LH experience, but I may give them a break for the next few trips."
Pros: "Excellent service and very professional crew both on the ground and in the air. Flight comfortable and a right on time. I highly recommend Lufthansa."
Pros: "The flight crew were very friendly and helpful. Excellent service."

Cons: "entertainment selection"
Pros: "Very friendly staff!"
Cons: "Monitor was very slow and at some moments not working at all (even after restart)"
Cons: "huge plane, no space. painful."
Cons: "The crew was quite unfriendly and rude. Also not very attentive. The crew on the first trip from Miami to Frankfurt in contrast was outstanding. I'm disappointed because this was not up to Lufthansa's standards."
Pros: "There were lots of out of the ordinary (read annoying) behavior. Of other passengers and the cabin crew responded patiently and professionally."
Cons: "Boarding did not proceed by rows as customary so boarding was a bit chaotic with everyone rushing to the gate. The reclining seats aee an issue. Although comfortable for the ones reclining they are uncomfortable and at times painful ( taller people) and makes watching the screen impossible when fully reclined."
Pros: "The flight wasn't full. I was given a window seat with an empty seat next to it. I was able to move around and relax. There were lots of movies to choose from. The food was decent for a flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system was very slow."
Pros: "Apart from the turbulence everything was perfect. Flight attendants were very hospitable. Love the aircraft design. Great movie choices for the kids. In addition to that we all reach our destination safely. That's all that matters."
Pros: "I loved being upgraded to premium economy"
Pros: "Top of the line service on a very long but smooth ride"
Pros: "Attendants were extremely helpful as I needed assistance to, and from Munich to Miami."
Cons: "Too long flight time. I left booking up to someone else so not fault of airline."
Pros: "Very kind professional and accommodating crew"
Pros: "I like that everything is done fairly quickly and efficiently."
Cons: "It may be a cultural thing for some, but two of the flight attendants did not smile at all. Not even really an acknowledgement when I said hello to them. And I tried throughout the flight to see if it was just because they were too busy or simply did not hear or notice me. It's not a big deal now, but it can be if the whole staff were to become silent and non-interactive."
Pros: "Enough room for short flight, flight staff was fabulous. No recommendations or complaints."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "I like the service in general. Everything was great and the flight attendants where very helpful and kind. The food was good and the entertainment had all types of movies, music and games."
Cons: "There is nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Smooth flight, very nice, polite crew, good entertainment selection. I'm a tall guy so I'll always complain about comfort lol. Food was OK. Choice of mystery pasta and once beef once chicken ( I had pasta twice )."
Pros: "Crew was polite but kept on speaking to me in German, I am American and only speak Finnish besides English, it was annoying"
Cons: "Having to wait over 90 minutes to debark the plane, this after weather pattern diverted us so much it added couple of hours to our flight, not fun at all. Also the gluten free food ordered did not show up so I got a yogurt the whole 13 hrs, with celiac it impossible to eat anything else."
Cons: "I am 5'10'' 180 pounds and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me for a flight from Chicago to Munich. I have more room on flights from Chicago to St. Louis. Flew Air Canada on the return through Toronto and had a foot more leg room and the food was better. I don't know how they get away with so little room."
The flight ✈️ and the crew.
The entire flight was amazing and crew were so awesome. Will fly again with Air Canada …!
Cons: "It was a 767 what was a good surprise at first but very old. Food was not worth eating, crew was fine. The seats like the airplane, old."
Cons: "Plane was many hours late. Departure time not on terminal screen. Extreeeme delay on shuttle from United terminal. Sidewalk closed for construction. TSA Prechk not on boarding pass printout. No shuttle behind security from Term B to Term A. Plane left earlier than announced on notification apps. DCA website=6:25pm Final call at 5:47pm only word DELAY on term screen with 4:10time."
Pros: "Boarding and experience at terminal was good and smooth for the poor weather outside"
Cons: "Plane cleaning and confort, old plane and somewhat mean crew director."
Pros: "The team was very professional and friendly"
Pros: "Nice flight, staff"
Cons: "Seats are so hard on the but that it's hurts to the bones for a few days...!! I travel a lot, and this is the only airline/aircraft that this occured. Also even checking in online, and gaving your boarding, they managed to get us to go to the counter to tag our carry ons..."
Pros: "The crew, the smooth safe flight, the cleanliness"
Cons: "The flight was delayed!! Very inconvenient."
Pros: "Smooth flight no issues."
Cons: "Be prepared to pay for food. You do get offeted water or coffee or soft drink. No offer for a refill. No snacks."
Pros: "Arriving safely. Very smooth landing."
Cons: "The same issue regarding no bottled water. Very turbulent flight. My bag and contents were damaged and Air Canada agent is stating that it is NOT covered!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Well, it did leave on time."
Cons: "I knew the seat pitch in economy was tight, but nothing prepared me for how truly abysmal it is. I’m 6’1”. My knees were jammed into the seat pocket. The fun continued when the passenger in front of me reclined their seat. I had to angle both my knees to the side. Without a doubt the most uncomfortable flight I’ve ever done. On a side note, AC switched equipment on this flight several times. Each time the ‘system’ would split up our seats. I had to call in five separate times to pick new seats. Also, at the gate they were asking passengers to voluntarily check in carry-on as there may not be enough room on the aircraft. First time I’ve ever heard that."
Cons: "In the past Air Canada has been great. This past experience makes me never want to fly again. In-flight entertainment is the worst I have ever experienced on an international airline. Entertainment options were very limited, and it didn't work for most of the flight (crew tried resetting the system, to no avail). Crew were inattentive and seemed more focused on hanging out in the back of the airplane socializing with each other. Food was terrible, and I am generally pretty easily pleased when it comes to food. Return flight was delayed twice without any announcements or explanations in the boarding area. Flights were completely full and airplanes were old and uncomfortable. This flight was cheap for a reason. Pay the extra amount and fly another airline."
Pros: "Leg room seemed fine and at least we got food."
Pros: "Flight Attendants went out of their way to treat us like customers throughout the journey. Something other Western airlines have completely forgotten how to do."
Cons: "flight was delayed getting into the gate by another Air Canada flight that was at the gate still. Almost caused me to miss my flight to Houston when I arrived in Toronto. Very bad since my layover in Vancouver was a very long 7 hours. Once in the airport, the help there was minimal and not very friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 1hr after everyone got on board to wait for a few passengers who were on their way to the airport. It's unbelievable."
Cons: "boarding was very painful , stood in line for over a hour to check suitcase . by time luggage was checked and i went through security the plane was boarding. i found luggage was damaged after i returned home. i then had to spend hours on chat to report damage and get a ref number, i then had to drive back to the airport for someone to see the damage and give me paper work. i now have to drive to thornhill to bring suitcase to see if can get repaired. plus i had to pay for parking at the airport. no satisfied with air canada at all."
Pros: "Quick boarding, service was excellent and quick."
Cons: "Don't like the Eouge entertainment system. Fortunately there was iPad rental.....at a price."
Pros: "No screen creates a longer feeling flight."
Cons: "No good food."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew courteous."
Pros: "It was not a completely full flight. The Boarding process was done by mainline Air Canada employees and it was perfectly good and the flight left on time. The aircraft's interior was not clean. The carpet the seats and the tray tables all dirty and discussing. The seats are undiscribly substandard and uncomfortable. The bilingual announcement was done incoherintkyin both languages absolutely not professional Crew was nice except an Asian/Canadian flight attendent. It's a less than adequate experience even for a officially second tier airline. Why does Canada put out an embarrassing product like this airline ? Shame on them !"
Pros: "Friendliness of stewardship."
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work in laptop and steward was not familiar enough with the app to troubleshoot the problem. Limited variety of entertainment. Bumpy flight even at landing. The airplane was making weird noises since the engine started. Food variety is also limited and very expensive for what you get"
Pros: "There was nothing to like about that flight."
Cons: "Even though I was at the airport on time , checked in and waiting to board; at the last minute I was told that the plane has left and the sooner I could fly would be the next day; without providing hotel arrangement nor meals and or at least money for taxi. Air Canada management personel has not been cordial to me and to the other travelers."
Pros: "I didn't go. They wouldn't allow me to make a change in my ticket so I flew a different airline. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about the flight except that it was a smooth one."
Cons: "I didn't like that it was delayed by four hours. The food was bad."
Pros: "Food was fair, and the pilot was great, all the rest was very bad"
Cons: "-The seat was super uncomfortable (I paid for a bulkhead seat, I had a regular seat. I'm tall, I didn't fit in the seat) -The flight attendant was rude, not nice, she crashed with the cart like 3 times, and she did not even apologize for hitting me. -We had a 4 hours delay at Montreal because of the weather, the one of AA wasn't delayed. -The entertainment was movies from 10+ years. -You have to pay for everything, so when you buy a ticket for ex. 250$, you have to pay for the seat, even if is not a bulkhead seat, or the first suitcase."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seating that one can have. I will never fly rouge again."
Pros: "unfortunately, not much."
Cons: "The check in was a mess. Ticket counters were scattered, three flights going to Canada and no one was directing the lines. People in line were shouting at each other and getting angry. Took two hours to check in.....had to run to catch flight and I was there two hours before boarding time."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "In all my years of flying, I've never felt so cramped in a seat- almost to the point of claustrophobic"
Cons: "we pre booked seats at #14 because our daughter cannot walk without help, we took her to and from the plane by wheelchair to make it easier, they bumped us to seat # 32 , the very last one, that is a long walk, at check in the woman there was rude when we told her of our situation and that we had seats, she said there was nothing she could do because the plane was full, she was not very helpful at all, and asked if we wanted to take another plane. Our whole family has been traveling with air Canada, but I think it's time for a change. Very disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "I don't have much that I liked besides the fact that it got me from Venice to Montreal."
Cons: "The service from the attendants is probably the worst that I've ever had. I had to ring someone and remind someone twice that I received the wrong customs form. Finally I had to walk back to the end of the plane where I saw four stedeardesses giggling over someone's phone. I missed one of the meals because I was dozing off and when I requested some food I was told that there was none left. The entertainment is subpar. You need a mobile or device with he app already installed. And even so the movies and shows are outdated and not very entertaining at all. On top of that, both legs of my flight my outlet was not working and not charging my device. Air Canada rouge- never again!"
Cons: "The seats are way to close, I am short and I had no room. There is no way those seats are far approved, cause they're is no way in an emergency people would be able to crawl out if those seats. There was no snack at all, not even pretzels, nothing."
Cons: "Minimal cabin service. Plane arrived late. Almost missed connection. Officious cabin attendant."
Pros: "The domestic crew were exceptionally good natured and attentive. Especially Daniela."
Cons: "Not much to like on this flight except the food. However, it's airplane food so it's expected to be not so good anyway."
Pros: "The Crew was the best people ever"
Cons: "Not about the flight but about the Kayak service, I bought the ensurance but it didnt let me change my flight anyway"
Pros: "The food was decent and the snack was good too -- a small hot pizza."
Pros: "Customer service was bad. I had to wait long line to check in bags. they took like 20 minutes to handle one transaction. I had to line up some where else to pay cash for my baggage after I checked in my bags. When I lined up somewhere else, a lady told me her computer was down and her printer was not working and told me to go to the next line. I lined up and waited for 20 minutes on the next line. after she finished, she told me to wait for one minute. I told her i can't wait or i would be late for the flight. she helped me and when i realized if i lined at immigration i would miss the flight. i was smart enough to ask for passengers in front of the line to let me cut. i was lucky enough they let me and i made it through."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours. After boarding, it was another hour before the flight took off. I was seated next to a family with 2 cranky children. I chose this flight just because it was supposed to arrive in Miami at a decent time. Ended up sleep deprived at work the next day."
Pros: "At least it was fast.."
Cons: "No space, no tv, no food, no music, no blanket, no water, nothing. Pack everything you need or bring your credit card"
Cons: "No TV service on an 11 hour flight. Really? It's 2016 can we get Air Canada into this decade please."
Cons: "After boarding the flight, having to sit and wait long in the plane....flight delay before take off. no meal without having to pay for it offered only a small cup of juice/tea/coffee to sip on. Not even a light snack or a can of juice is too much to ask for, considering the cost and comfort cut backs to fly with Air Canada"
Cons: "Flight and hospitality"
Pros: "quick enough flight"
Cons: "no in-flight entertainment, not power outlets, lack of leg room"
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than 2 hours, seats very tight"
Pros: "I liked nothing, the flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours and was notified when I arrived 2 hrs before flight . The Airlines were not helpful at all. Then when I got to my seat on this late 3 1/2 hour delay my seat was broken and uncomfortable for the rest of the flight which was three hours."
Cons: "Did not enjoy the flight or your flight attendants They were rude and did not satisfy me as a customer at all Would not recommend Air Canada rouge to anyone and will avoid booking with Air Canada again"
Pros: "Understaffed flight Crew, extremely slow crew , took 1 hour and 45 minutes to distribute drinks. Horrible customer service and horrible smelly cloth seats so cramped your knees hit the little pouch on the sit in front of you. Worse airline ever. Only perk was the cost of the flight $1100 from Orlando to Nice. They had the best price for a last minute flight. But not worth it. My god I have to say this is really the most unorganized airline I've ever flown."
Cons: "Understaffed flight Crew, extremely slow crew, horrible customer service and horrible smelly cloth seats so cramped your knees hit th e little pouch on the sit in front of you. Worse airline ever."
Pros: "Not much. Pilots did a good job and stewards on flight were pleasant."
Cons: "The process of going through Customs in Canada stinks! We were herded like cattle in one line, all these people from many flights. Process long and tedious and then people with later flights being processed before others nearly caused us to miss our flight. After nearly 9 hours on previous flight! Not good and then not even a decent snack. I am thankful that the crew waited for us but I didn't know this until I tried to find my gate which had been changed and heard the final boarding call. Also my traveling friends and I were separated and they almost left without me. Awful situation!! Also crew on ground couldn't or wouldn't explain what was going on so kept in the dark until you actually got to next step. Would have been nice to explain what was going on!"
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't very kind. I needed some help to set my carry on luggage in the upper compartment and the male flight attendant just stranded there seeing me struggle."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, and then when we boarded, were told that the flight would be delayed again . . . and then informed that the flight was canceled. The staff did not know what was happening, and kept us on the plane for almost 2 hours, before letting us off and telling us there were no hotels available. It was a nightmare experience transferring in Toronto. The crew did what they could, but they were largely kept in the dark too."
