I paid over $1500 for the ticket. I requested a refund from Lufthansa, but all they could offer me in return was $100.
Being profiled for 'random' security checks because of your last name is racist.
Crew was amazing. Attentive and polite
Pros: "amazing and great customer service"
Pros: "Crew was very good. Food was OK."
Cons: "Individual space was tight made worse by some inconsiderate people who put their seats as far back as possible. This should be regulated."
Pros: "Nothing in particular stands out about our flight. We've flown many airlines, Aeroflot, British Air, Delta, Iceland Air and KLM recently. Lufthansa was right in there with the middlet of the pack, with the exception of Iceland Air, which would be at the bottom, but they make no pretenses. The seats, even in the basic economy, which we had,reclined and were comfortable; good legroom. Food and drink offerings were standard. Amounts were small, but everything was the right temperature. Restrooms were clean and well equipped. Movie offerings, not many newer releases. Nothing like Sky news, so you couldn't check weather or current events. Crew was courteous and attentive,"
Cons: "Boarding at Frankfort left much to be desired. First off, the equipment was not ready; we waited 45 min. to board after we got to the gate (early) and due to turbulence over the Atlantic, the pilots could not make up the time. We are senior citizens. We, along with about 25 others in our category, responded to the call for us to get in line to board, stand for 30 min. The gate personnel did not provide any information that boarding was NOT imminent at that point, so you had to stand up to keep your place. Finally, once the boarding for people needing assistance began, we got to choose between using 2 flights of stairs (a faster way to get into the plane) or an elevator to board the plane. (Hello! We have trouble with things like stairs; don't you know that?) The elevator accommodated one wheelchair and 2 or 3 people at a time. More waiting in the jetway to get down to the plane! The whole boarding process took 90 min. from the time we stood up to the time they closed the doors. Bad grades for the the cleaning crew making us wait so long, for the gate personnel for keeping us in the dark and the disorganized process boarding. Nobody cared about our discomfort, not what we would have expected from LH. Consequently, we've revised our opinion of Luthansa. Maybe next time we'll take BA."
Cons: "Hour late departure and still only loaded 1/3 of the luggage. Communication about the luggage problem was poor"
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "The crew was attentive"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for an hour."
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive at our destination!!!!"
Pros: "The new Airbus was a very cool aircraft."
Cons: "Boarding process is really disorganized."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The infotainment system could have been better. My system was not working for the first 3 hours and the sound went out after 2 hours of use. Also my blanket was not clean."
Pros: "Food and crew were terrific."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt is particularly laborious"
Pros: "The crew was polite and did their best"
Cons: "Connection time was way too tight, Plane was overcrowded, food was abysmal, bathrooms filthy, seats are designed to be as uncomfortable as possible, missing and broken parts, tiny pitch, not usable for work, no place for personal device, freezing cold cabin. Worst transatlantic coach experience I’ve had in years, including budget airlines."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Flight attendants were so attentive in Premium Economy. Entertainment choices were excellent. There was a USB charging port on the back of the seat. All good!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, pleasant service"
Pros: "Prior flight from Zagreb to Munich was delayed 1 hour due to inclement weather - not the airline's fault. However although I made my connecting flight, my suitcase didn't. I'm writing this the next day & waiting for my suitcase to be delivered."
Cons: "There was no announcement about the delay & the reason why. We found out by reading the board. The passengers found out from each other what caused the delay. Passengers would experience less anxiety if they were informed what's going on."
Cons: "The cabin crew ignored my repeated calls for service. I willing gave up my seat so a couple could sit together with their kid and sat behind my wife and kids to be nice. They than reclined the seat back and my seat was broken do I asked them to put the seat forward and they ignored me. I informed the cabin crew that they weren't being considerate after all I gave up my seat to them. The cabin crew told me I could leave my 4 yest old and 3 year old alone and move to a new seat."
Pros: "FRA to PHL excellent"
Cons: "I was rebooked into FRA from BSL without notification."
Pros: "Nothing this was a nightmare."
Cons: "We missed our connected flight because or flight was delayed... this does not make any sense. If the flight is delayed, there should be proper high priority check in and bus transport implemented so we arrive at our gate on time. Me and the 2 other passengers had zero chance to arrive on time and were at a loss of breath. And i paid for my selected seats to which i am asking for a refund because what happened was unacceptable. When we addressed our concern, the lufthansa employee told us that u cannot have buses for all the passengers in a situation of a delay.... unacceptable.... how is this the client's fault to miss a flight due to a delay?"
Pros: "Comfort and space"
Cons: "Plane was scheduled to depart at 10:30 and didn't leave ground until 11:40, unacceptable."
Pros: "Crew. Meal good too."
Cons: "Bus rides to aircraft at Frankfurt"
Pros: "Everything. Food, drinks and entertainment was great. The crew are amazing. Great flight. Pilot kept us informed of everything with delay of serving food due to turbulence."
Cons: "How long it takes you to get to Germany! But they have no control over that."
Cons: "Boarding delayed, awkward & slow. Employees rude and bossy. Crew on board not pleasant or helpful. Food disgusting. Noticed same dramatic difference in passenger treatment between SFO and Frankfurt legs of the flight. They treat the mostly Indian customers differently. I go to India every year. It was same last year. My suitcase broken in transit. Reported. No call back after several days. I’m US citizen of German ancestry. I feel badly about lack of service for India bound passengers."
Pros: "As usual, good customer service."
Cons: "I fail to see why Lufthansa is deliberately destroying their competitive advantage."
Pros: "Flew Lufthansa- Started On-time, landed ahead of time, service was wonderful, ride was good overall. Crew was excellent!"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The crew was nice about everything. On being asked at the airport to at least change my seat on the second leg flight the personnel did it without a fuss."
Cons: "Food could have been better, the breakfast/snack we got wasn't filling at all. The entertainment collection can be better specially Indian/Hindi movies"
Pros: "Crew is very professional"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly small, flights are overcrowded and rarely on time."
Pros: "Efficiency and level of care, quality of food and drinks, not to mention the entertainment on Lufthansa Airlines!"
Cons: "Nothing to write here, whole experience was excellent!"
Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived ontime."
Cons: "Minor issue: entertainment computer did not work. I wasn’t able to watch TV for the 7hrs of plane ride. Also, the crew does not respond to the blue light when passengers call them."
Pros: "Excellent crew-seats were decent-not as good as Emirates., but doable. Seats from Frankfurt to Bengaluru in India were smaller than US domestic airlines-a feat thought unachieveable!!"
Cons: "Food was terrible-choice for dinner was Salmon or pasta with tomato sauce! Obviously picked the salmon which was sitting on a bed of soggy rice and a dinner roll that was so cold, I could cool my drink with! It was also hard enough to use for self-defense. The entertainment system was so bad, the kid behind me was punching the screen!! It took me 5 minutes to wait for the screen to respond and it was not much larger than my phone. Again, miss Emirates-this will be my last flight on Lufthansa!!!"
Pros: "Service was professional"
Cons: "Food veriety"
Pros: "Appreciated pillow, blanket and headphones on each seat. Served edible dinner on a 10 pm flight."
Cons: "Movie selection was subpar."
Pros: "The flight was operated by Lufthansa. There was a training flight attendant who exceeded the expectations."
Pros: "Our stewardess from Toronto to Germany was the best that I have ever had."
Cons: "Great trip."
Pros: "It was on time :)"
Cons: "I booked wheelchair at Oslo airport, but my father did not get it at Frankfurt."
Pros: "Short flight, so food, comfort, entertainment not as important"
Cons: "All flights on Lufthansa, coming and going, were late in take off. We missed a connecting flight on the way to our vacation."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. The plane was clean/as to be expected. Overall, the flight was comfortable (again, as to be expected)."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and unorganized. "Dinner" meal could have been served earlier and it could have been more filling (we were so hungry!) There could have been more opportunities to get water. They ran out of water bottles."
Pros: "The crew was very assertive, plenty of snacks and drinks, good food. Flight went on smooth and the captain lender splendidly. Seats were comfortable with plenty of leg space, entertainment had numerous choices. Would recommend to friends."
Cons: "Everything's was fine"
Cons: "The seat was changed without any communication. Also, on-line checking from internet was not functioning."
Pros: "Prompt boarding and takeoff, comfortable seat, good service and food."
Cons: "I did not like the fold-out tray as well as the fold-down tray, no personal screen for the first row."
Pros: "Friendliness and professionalism of the crew "Excellent""
Cons: "Being a very long trip,needs some more comfort"
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight. The flight crew was nice. They were considerate and cheerful."
Pros: "Flight was on schedule. Was lucky to get a empty seat next to me so plenty of room. Glad they provided the requested specialty meal."
Cons: "Boarding occurred an mass. No order what so ever so long lines getting to the plane and in the plane. The head phone jack was for a two prong headphone so it forced you to use the headphone they provided or only hear from one ear."
Pros: "Entertainet options were very good and very diverse."
Cons: "For an international flight the plane was quite tight in terms if leg room and aisle space."
Cons: "The food was awful"
Flight didn’t happen; it was cancelled. Chatdeal not taking responsibility to refund, even though they have my money.
There was no flight. It was canceled. We were rebooked, but we are not sure if Kayak helped us or if it was SAS.
Easy flight. Check-in as well as in-flight crew were very good. Comfort and cleanliness of planes was good as you would expect. Food was basic but tasty. No vegitarian option and no free alcoholic drinks in economy class. But overall was good experience and good value for money.
You have to pay for water. FOR WATER.
The flight was delayed and I wasn't able to make my connection. I never got any emails from the airlines or kayak about where I was reebok. I am currently writing from Stockholm Airport. I will hopefully get to Milan later tonight. I also will ask for a refund when this odyssey is over. Ivan Manfredi
It’s a short flight so there is no entertainment The security check is brutal and nothing in food except for tea and coffee for free. Even water was $2/ bottle
Cons: "connection information very poor"
Cons: "Multiple delays. Need to offer back up flights and hold connections for delayed flights."
Pros: "The quality of the seat, cleanliness of the aircraft (with the exception of the restrooms). Ground and lounge crew excellent and knowledgeable. Boarding was swift but confusing."
Cons: "In cabin crew was substandard. Very slow in the food service, often times rude and lound when addressing passengers, and failed to clean the restrooms in flight, which left them in dire state and smelled. An unusually unpleasant set of attendants, and sadly not one of them made up for the lack of professionalism the others showed. No priority boarding, they proceeded with boarding the first half of passengers all at once so rather confusing."
Pros: "great service flight was on time luggage was on time"
Pros: "Check in at the airport gate was handled professionally."
Cons: "Bought our seats 2 months in advance. One day before flight, saw our assigned seats were changed, someone had our original seats 31G/H, and we were put in 48C/D. Could not get any assistance to correct the situation until we were at the gate and by that time no comparable seats were available. Also, my husband spilled his drink; one of the attendants said he was too busy to help with cleanup. Fortunately, another attendant came over after my husband went to the galley to again ask for assistance."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "Dinner and breakfast were terrible, especially for a long transatlantic flight. Attendants were curt. Movie selection was subpar compared to other airlines on similar flights I’ve taken."
Pros: "The fact that I was lucky and the plane was not full and got two seats to myself"
Cons: "Terrible planning with too few ticket counters that created a huge line and massive delays First European airline that I have travelled that offered no food"
Pros: "The food was great and the staff were excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was limited and there were no live channels - just prerecorded content"
Pros: "Crew Flight delayed. Said 30. Actual 1 hour"
Cons: "Kayak sold me a one way usd 500 ticket and did not give me the option to add the luggage. Had to pay 60 eur in the airport. Is probably better to buy in the airline directly"
Pros: "Fairly new plane."
Cons: "Only airline that made us check in our luggage; and charged us an exorbitant amount (+/- $90 per luggage) in doing so. No customer service at all. 1st attendant wouldn’t let us check-in at the counter, and 2nd attendant made us check in our carry-on despite it only being 2kg over. We could’ve moved some items around. When we boarded the plane, we saw multiple people whose carry-on looked suspiciously over the weight limit. We felt singled out. It was obvious that this airline only cares about profit and does not care about the customer. Attendants were rude and not helpful. Needless to say I will nit fly with this airline again."
Pros: "With tablets for the entertainment system – – a ton of good movies to choose from. So much so that we stayed up hours after we planned to, watching movies"
Cons: "Seats were a little crowded together, but that’s to be expected in modern passenger flight"
Pros: "The staff and other guests are always so polite! Getting the SAS Lounge Pass is always smart."
Pros: "Timely & helpful"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "Everything. Nothing ever goes wrong when I fly SAS which is why I seldom don't. And if something does go wrong their manners and spirits are high and they make sure everyone is still happy and comfortable. Best service in the airline industry."
Cons: "I like everything."
Cons: "On time, efficient, friendly staff"
Pros: "Upgraded to business class"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour & half"
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment, & food"
Pros: "Fast on fast off"
Cons: "We got moved twice and then to a middle seat. Why have checking at all?"
Pros: "Easy kiosk check in, baggage drop off, good service."
Cons: "No advance discussion about emergency exit row seating requirements, and we were not allowed to even have a paperback book to read in this row. The flight was full and boarded, so not able to change seats."
Cons: "After a 9 hour flight from Chicago to Stockholm I had to fly to Athens in an old type airplane , no entertainment, no TV & I had to pay for the food and the drinks. Very disappointing !"
Pros: "Crew taking care of us was excellent."
Cons: "Food terrible. Our seats in Plus were in bad condition, they move us that also were in bad condition, hey you are paying Plus to have good seats!"
Pros: "Movie selection/Entertainment choices were good. Food was ok. Overhead storage space was adequate."
Cons: "Seats are awfully small and legroom is cramped. The crew was standoffish and inattentive. Beverage service is lacking."
Pros: "crew was really nice and efficient"
Cons: "no complimentary beverages"
Cons: "I asked for a second glass of water and the flight attendant told me I had to buy a bottle. Also, the flight departed one hour late."
Cons: "Unfriendly and rude desk help. Rude and insulting. United was a real disappointment. I will ask my travel agent to be in touch re screw up the economy plus seats. I had to pay extra for what our itinerant said had been booked. Mary, at the desk at C12 in Delles, she wouldn't give me her last name was unbelievably insulting and unhelpful."
Pros: "The entertainment system is top notch. And the food was actually good. The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Couldn't use the WiFi without paying extra, even on an international flight. The seats are among the most uncomfortable I have ever flown in. There is so little room that it is virtually impossible to sleep, even on an 8-hour flight. The purser's English was atrocious, nearly incomprehensible, and he didn't seem to care whether anyone understood him or not."
Pros: "The entertainment system is great, and it was much more comfortable with no one in the center seat."
Cons: "Charging for using the WiFi and making passengers pay for soft drinks? Really? Talk about being nickel and dimed. Pathetic."
Pros: "Comfy and good movies!"
Cons: "SAS does not even offer wine with the meal, you have to pay for it. Additionally they have the strange policy that they give drinks at frost, that is ALL drinks, including the meal drinks, and then comes the meal about half an hour later. The do not offer ANY drinks with the meal."
Pros: "The plane was well kept and the entertainment system worked well with enough choice. The crew was average: no problems."
Cons: "The (transatlantic) flight was delayed 8 hours and the only compensation received was 175DKK for lunch. Had to stay in the airport over 11 hours due to this delay and had already had a 16 hour layover from the day before. I realize that unexpected delays may occur, particularly in cases where passenger safety is in question, but delays of more than 5 hours cause major inconvenience and I felt stuck in the airport with my bags and having checked out of my hotel room already. Just compensating for lunch is not enough. In the future a partial reimbursement for the flight, access to the priority lounge or a more comfortable facility such as a hotel would provide the passengers with compensation proportional to the inconvenience."
Cons: "no food very cramped small seats plain full to capacity"
Pros: "Food, WiFi and cheap business upgrades"
Cons: "Delay and lost baggage both ways."
Cons: "Crew service is very poor Flight cleanliness was poor Food served was very low quality Inflight entertainment was very basic"

Pros: "Flights were on time. Crew was great."
Pros: "There seemed to be a little more leg room on this flight compared to the flight from IAD to CPH on 6/26/16."
Cons: "The movie choices weren't nearly as good as the flight from IAD to CPH on 6/26/16."
Pros: "Leaving on schedule and arriving 20 minutes early. The crew was very helpful to families with children."
Cons: "The air conditioner was blowing cold air on my head through the whole trip. No way to control it. Or stop it."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "It's extremely difficult to catch the connecting flight to San Francisco in 45 minutes"
Pros: "- Good selection of movies and very surprised and happy they're not censored! :-))) - Seats were fairly comfortable. - The boarding/seating process was good because when other people started to cut-in-line, SAS folks reiterated to those cutting in line that they need to go back to the end of the line and wait as others were waiting before them."
Cons: "- Only having one soft drink during the whole 9hr flight for SAS Go. Only coffee, tea and water are free. - Was thinking of upgrading because I had one extra baggage, but was told that I still wouldn't be eligible for one free extra baggage if I upgraded to SAS Plus NOR SAS Business - There was only one option for dinner, which was Meatballs. The meatballs were worse than IKEA ones. I'd rather eat the IKEA meatballs than those. I usually finish my main meal and I didn't eat it because it was that bad."
Cons: "only allow one 6 oz water, asked us to buy after it. it is ridiculous. senior attendant had bad attitude. the chairs are uncomfortable in this old aircraft."
They just let people fly without properly using the required mask
Air France service was superb. The airline did their best to expedite the boarding process even with the constant changes of Covid19 guidelines
4 flights in 3 weeks between arrival and departure and all flights delayed about 5 to 6 hours ! What’s going on with AF ?! Not a low cost and you paid for that service !?!? Not anymore
Pros: "The premium economy- it was the most uncomfortable - tight seats. The back of the seats are not reclining It’s not worth the money you pay for premium services"

Cons: "Wish there was more elbow room in the seat. I am a big guy and I was having to squish myself so as to not interfere with my neighbor"
Pros: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears. The airplane seems to be 30 years behind time. Crew was unfriendly and smiling faces are not part of the uniform."
Cons: "Very narrow seats and thim cushion. No entertainment offered an do means of recharging electronic devices."
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Hard seats Boarding was 35 min delayed"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Did not seat together passengers, although booked and checked in at the same time."
Pros: "Food has improved a lot on business class. Meals are more creative."
Cons: "Water bottles not given out unless ou ask for it. Crew needs to better trained with how to handle business class..."
Pros: "Late leaving - no reason or apology. A bumpy flight all flight. Food almoat inedible. Seat gave bum axhe after 45 minutes. Staff friendly, but they dropped my meal"
Cons: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "I am not sure why this happened, but our daughter, travelling away from home for the first time, was targeted at every step of her journey. From the terminal in DCA to Cincinnati, to CDG. Delta/Air France clearly singled her out. i am outraged! I have traveled many, many times and have sent hundreds of students on nearly the same trip -- and none have had as rough a time as she had. They will be hearing from me."
Cons: "Security services at Manchester airport...too long and not friendly at all"
Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."
Pros: "I liked the food, the crew, the service"
Cons: "The seats we were assigned ( we are two we'll feed person's and the seats are toooo narrow"
Cons: "Airplane really old. Cabin configuration economy was in front of economy plus. Just 1 bathroom for economy and economy plus. Economy plus seats old and uncunfuttable ( more than it should be )"
Pros: "The food was pretty good and the staff were friendly. During our transfer in Paris, my mum had a medical emergency and had to go to the medical centre. As such wr couldnt go to our final destination in Morocco and had to get our luggage off the plane. The staff at the AF counter were very helpful in that aspect. And when one of the luggages was completely damaged, it was replaced it with a brand new one which was fantastic. On the way back, we had some issues with the ticket because we didnt go to Morocco as planned which resulted in some trouble checking in. But the staff at the counter were quite helpful."
Cons: "I was asked to change my seat repeatedly"
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Charmingly nice crew and involving captain"
Cons: "the delay of the flight, the drinks we had to pay in the lounge, some poeple got a 25$ compensation coupon and we didn’t. The connecting time was about 1 hour and the luggage was not put on the plane to beirut"

Cons: "Some toilet facilities out of order and some slow service"
Pros: "It was on time and the crew was good"

Cons: "Late leaving and arriving."

Pros: "I had a choice of movies, games and music that was very appealing. My concerns about not receiving the correct meal was handled professionally and promptly during the flight. I was surprised they couldn't discover I only ordered it for the second leg of my flight."
Cons: "Being placed into a window seat at 6' 5". Although I opted for general seating rather than paying for a extra leg room which is out of my budget. Not getting an aisle seat was disturbing at my height. Then there was the guy in front of me not willing to forego putting his seat back on my knees for over half the flight. It would be nice if the seat assignments for general boarding considered the height of the person being assigned."
Pros: "The crew was very comfortable speaking two languages and friendly. They also had air conditioning! This was great because it was strangely hot in Paris and we were sweating profusely. And our last air france experience we were so hot and it was aweful. Even though it was like an hour and a half flight they still served us sandwiches ,really good."
Pros: "quick flight 10 min ahead schedule"
