Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "Everything was super. Really"
Cons: "Many delays boarding plane. No entertainment at all on a flight longer than 3 hours is insane. Flight crew are great, though."
Pros: "Great flight and food options."
Cons: "The seats we were in were where it went from 4 in a row to 3, so the telvisions were not directly in front of us, and i had to keep my head turned at an angle for ten hours. It sounds silly, but my neck hurt after the flight a little. Might be a pop out tv you can attach that is moveable to fix this"
Pros: "This was my first time flying and I have to honestly say I enjoyed this airline. The staff is very attentive to your needs. I felt comfortable the whole flight. The pilot and flight attendants are very informative."
Cons: "I didn’t like the passenger sitting in front of me on my return flight from Frankfurt to JFK. She had her seat reclined the whole time even during meal service. I asked the stewardess to kindly ask the lady to move her seat up so I can remove my meal tray and she said to communicate with the passenger it would make things more easier. I thought that is what the stewardess is supposed to assist me with but hat is my only complaint"
Pros: "Super professional, comfortable and on-time service with both Swiss and Lufthansa."
Cons: "Clear up-front notification about extra charge for first checked bag on both ways of the trip ($60 each). I couldn't find that information at the time of the booking."
Cons: "just because my seat mate was german and asked in german language , crew member gave her first class sendwich , and i got some cold and nasty , no internet on the plane stop lying to people"
Pros: "Clean new Airbus 380. Nice crew"
Pros: "I have never been treated so poorly by counter people in my life!"
Cons: "After 2 hour delay, the flight was cancelled. NO ONE helped to find another flight. After waiting in line for 2 hours, the ticket agent handed me a card and said I had to call the 800 number. The person on the phone said I had to talk to ticket agent to go standby on a flight to Munich and the ticket agent told me I had to call. I was caught in a loop and no one helped. Then when it became apparent I wasn't getting out that night I was informed that there were no hotel vouchers and I would have to find my own hotel! After searching for an hour for a hotel (all were sold out in Boston) I called a friend who lives outside of Boston. No one gave me a taxi voucher because it was not to a hotel. LUFTHANSA customer service is the WORST!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and efficient. We left and landed on time a very good flight."
Pros: "I like Lufthansa, I feel safe with them. Crew was nice, flight Chicago- Frankfurt very comftarble."
Cons: "My daughters tv didn’t worked it was 8 hours flight, food- beef had not eatable pieces of meat with vains only- we had choice of beef and pasta only no chicken."
Cons: "No entertainment system."
Cons: "food could have been better especially "breakfast"."
Cons: "Lack of drinking water fountains at the FRA airport"
Pros: "We liked it all. Great flight!"
Cons: "The big layover but even that worked out well"
Pros: "I like everything about Lufthansa- the professionalism of its flight attendants, the food (yes!), the inflight entertainment options. I'll even lengthen my flight so that I can take Lufthansa on the longest leg."
Cons: "Actually, nothing!"
Cons: "It was a different way later flight"
Pros: "Flew back last weekend in February. Transfer between plane from Barcelona in Frankfort (LH hub) to flight to Boston extremely chaotic. Masses of passengers all attempting to transfer to US bound flights. Insufficient staff from both Lufthansa and German border control to process or even organize the masses of people flying that day. Mob scene at transfer points. Not up to LH usual standards. Quite surprising as their passenger volume data should have alerted them to impending problems. Our flight was delayed over an hour for takeoff so USA bound connecting passengers (whose luggage was already on the planes) could be processed."
Cons: "Chaos and disorganization. Masses of connecting passengers unable to get to their flights anywhere near planned boarding time. Takeoffs delayed substantially."
Pros: "Exelent crew"
Cons: "Long distance between gates to transfer"
Pros: "Could not get skybridge to operate so that we could disembark. United airlines."
Pros: "Arrived with enough time for me to connect to my international flight."
Cons: "Boarding had no clear order. Had an international connecting flight and by the time I needed to board, there was no room in the overhead and I had to check my luggage. The airline should provide a vegan snack option for customers."
Cons: "I was removed from my connection flight without consent. No offer Nothing Just tagged not for boarding with a child. The ticketing person in Addis may have volunteered me"
Pros: "Great crew, smooth boarding. The dinner was fine, salmon on rice, salad, cheese and desert, of good quality when compared to typical airline food. The breakfast was ok, fruit, muffin and ok cereal bar, too carb-heavy though. The entertainment offered my options. I particularely enjoyed the "Deep-Sleep" relaxation audios which indeed helped me to get some shut-eye during the overnight flight that left the East Coast late afternoon."
Cons: "The comfort in the economy class is mediocre at best. We had more space on the inner-German connection, see next review, than the international flight. The beverage service was skimpy. Flight arrived Dusseldorf on time and then spend 20 minutes on the ground, waiting for a gate, resulting in a scramble to reach our connection."
Pros: "Food is better than other airlines, keep it up!"
Cons: "breakfast was just a muffin. used to be a real breakfast with bread, butter etc. would be nice to bring that back"
Pros: "Breakfast should not be served 4 AM Cairo time, 40 minutes after boarding"
Cons: "Sounds in TV doesn’t work"
Pros: "Made tight connection. Slept entire trip"
Pros: "Attends were good."
Cons: "Jain meal is not available which is available in all the flights like Emirates, United airlines, Turkish airlines etc"
Pros: "Clean, new plane."
Cons: "Baggage got lost on a direct flight. A lot to improve here."
Pros: "Liked the crew, the food, blanket and pillow."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport wheelchair service needs to be better administrated."
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: "The plane was clean, the staff for the most part friendly"
Cons: "Had to be shuttled out to the plane on the tarmac"
Cons: "By the time my daughter got through security the gate had closed and her ticket didn't allow for any opportunity for her to get another flight. Would not book again using Lastminute.com, nor Lufthansa, as they provided a lack of service and no help for her to change her flight - even though the ticket was nearly €200 and she was clearly distressed and upset."
Pros: "Comfortable and big leg room"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "i reserve a chair and pay for them and they didnt get it and make me in last plain"
Cons: "Ridiculous policy that couldn't get seat until 23 hours in advance, then that wasn't even true. Then misinformed me about what kind of seat I had been assigned. Then insisted I check a bag that did not need to be checked. Then the food was inedible. Flight happened to be late so I missed my connection, and they offered some more misinformation in that regard; There were of course human beings (staff) to deal with, but they had been reduced by Lufthansa's rules and systems so they were just robots, repeating over and over again inflexible policies. Horrible!"
Pros: "We had nothing to complain about and much to be happy about. The seating in economy (seats 36A and 36C and an Airbus 330-300) was generous compared to other airlines we've flown recently (e.g., on a 777 with United on the way over, and that was "Economy PLUS!). The food was much better than the United flight, and really, it was almost too much. I'm home 14 hours after landing and I'm still not hungry. They were also very generous with the drinks and worked to keep us well hydrated with water and juices. The crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Overall, it was a great experience and I will certainly look to Lufthansa first for my next transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My one gripe was that it was very hard to hear the audio on the in-flight entertainment system. I even abandoned one movie I really wanted to see because I couldn't follow the dialogue. Also, I discovered late in the flight that the view screen pivoted and this would have helped in enjoying the videos more. Here's an idea for Lufthansa: how about adding "Tips" to somewhere in the Entertainment system to improve your seat, viewing, and other experiences. For instance, I wasn't aware that the head cushion on the seats were adjustable to better support your head. One last thing, on the entertainment system, it appears to be browser based, but sadly lacks a "Back" button equivalent."
Pros: "The pilot and cree were proactive in returning thevplane 36mins inflight due to an un unexplained smell everyone was treated well and another aircraft was made available for the flight back"
Cons: "Nothing to comment"
Pros: "Comfortable and smooth flight"
Pros: "Seat backs are flatter, which for me (a shorter woman) is much more comfortable than the more contoured seats on other airlines."
Cons: "Very dry sandwiches."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding, friendly and helpful. The entertainment options were great with lots of current movie and tv listings. the food was pretty good. We received two meals and frequent beverage service. The seats were pretty comfortable, though when the seat in front of you reclined the space was greatly reduced."
Cons: "We had to pay to get seat assignments. it wasn't cheap and then they changed the seats we'd chosen to seats at the very back of the plane. The boarding process is chaotic, at least compared to American practices."
Cons: "As there was a long wait, the gate change did not come quickly for notification."
Pros: "The chairs were the comfiest I've ever flown in!! Amazing"
Pros: "Easy boarding, except for delay leaving Munich. Crew was very accommodating, saw to every need I had. Entertainment made the 8 hour flight seem to go by faster."
Cons: "Food was not tasteful or enjoyable."
Pros: "Checkin was timely and the agent helpful!"
Cons: "The immigration line was way too long in New Delhi."
Pros: "Lufthansa really knows how to run an airline, there was a one day strike the day before our departure for SFO, we thought for sure the airport would be a disaster, all through the strike we were updated on our flight status via email, when we arrived to the airport from Florence, we were in a brand new airport terminal, the flow was flawless the plane was on time and you would never know there was any disruption, unlike the US the airport is a mess for days, we would fly Lufthansa anytime."
Pros: "The price was good."
Cons: "This was NOT a Lufthansa flight. The plane was a United flight. One of the worst I have experienced in 40 years of flying to Europe and Hawaii."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the cabin and bathrooms were very clean and the separation among passengers was unexpected and great"
Cons: "My flight was laid over due to weather so it may have been helpful to get a new boarding pass as we left the cancelled flight and maybe a voucher to help with hotel & food."
Pros: "Newer plane, smooth boarding and on time arrival"
Cons: "Both female flight attendants were very rude and pushy, the male was the only pleasant person. Also the in flight entertainment didn’t work half the time."
Pros: "The crew was amazing but I was on a United flight since American was late leaving Athens. AA booked me on a later flight from Chicago to San Francisco on United. They issued separate inside seats for my wife and I. United showed me their kindness by putting us together in economy Plus."
Cons: "I don't blame American for being late but putting me on a United flight and splitting up my wife and I seperate seats was a little under the bar."
Cons: "I never made it... I had a trip interruption and got stuck in Chicago and would of had to wait another full 24hrs to take the flight to Denver. tired and nauseated after being all day at the airport that at midnight, i knew that I couldn't hold off till the next evening, took the next flight back."
Cons: "Flight was delayed about 10 minutes. :("
Cons: "No wifi no movie."
Cons: "Could give more time before baggage and check in. Arrived exactly one hour before flight and ohh my god........ Management however pulled some miracle...."
Cons: "Just about everything but the crew"
Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!"
Cons: "At 12:40 p.m. we boarded American Airlines flight 1350 in ATL, just to SIT on plane for 1 1/2 hours (half the time with NO AIR). Computer problems. Had to get off plane, then had to wait in 3 lines. Agents were so UNPROFESSIONAL! Kept saying flight would go... DID NOT go until another plane came in at 9:00 PM! We, needless to say missed our connecting flight to SYDNEY and had to wait til next day and fly to SAN FRANCISCO, then to MELBOURNE, then on to Christchurch. We MISSED out on TWO DAYS of our short trip! which included missed reservations!!"
Pros: "Great food, on time, smooth service"
Pros: "Before I knew it we were landing. Good flight"
Cons: "The meal had no dessert. The coffee had run out and they promised to return and never did. I had to remind the hostess about an hour later."
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "I really like that they free inflight WiFi and entertainment. The seats are little more comfortable than other airlines. The service was great too."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment so the rating there doesn't mean anything. Flight was delayed 1 hour due to a mechanical issue. Part of the delay included AA trying to get the flight crew to show up at the gate. The flight was oversold so there was a long list of standbys which added to the crowd waiting at the gate."
Pros: "great staff making you feel like home. flight on time,definitely recommend to all."
Pros: "Experience was fine, Flight was late leaving & plane seamed pretty old. The crew however is was very good."
Pros: "Flt on time crew and staff very polite"
Cons: "No TVs per seat. Older plane. Food was marginal."
Pros: "Flight was delayed so much that I would miss my connection so I never went and am on a new flight today on a different airline"
Pros: "Don't know. Never made it that far."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Standard flight and good landing. On time."
Cons: "Need more space in coach."
Pros: "The actual flight itself was fine and the inflight entertainment provided good entertainment."
Cons: "From the begining the trip was plagued by delays. I was supposed to leave Monterey at 0600, we didnt leave until 0630. Then my Phoenix flight was delayed by two hours that caused me to shift flights in Charlotte because i would miss my connection. Lastly, they had to change a break on the plane leaving Charlotte so instead of getting home at 7 like i was supposed to, i got into Norfolk at 1139 pm."
Pros: "Smooth operation!"
Cons: "Boarding a slight bit disorganized"
Pros: "Flight had very few people on it so everyone could stretch out for the 6 hour flight."
Cons: "The original flight turned around 45 minutes in and I missed my connecting flight. AA refused to try and get me on another flight the same day so I could make it to Sydney on the original day I was supposed to land. We waited 2/3 hours to board a whole new flight, and AA hardly compensated. If anything they should’ve provided a meal at least instead of a bag of pretzels. Flight crew seemed very inconvenienced and it showed."
Pros: "The premium economy service was well worth the extra money. The crew was attentive but not annoying on an overnight service. The food was much better than other long haul internationals. And we arrived rested ready to see the city"
Cons: "Again boarding was just a mush of people. American keeps revising the boarding process but does little to make it actually efficient and orderly. The grouping should have made things better but gate agents don’t consistently reinforce the policy so passengers are all lax."
Pros: "The Monterrey airport is very comfortable and fast. The trip was pleasant. The staff very attentive."
Cons: "On this trip I wanted to see snow and I did not see it."
Cons: "Late leaving Monterey. Other than that, fine trip"
Pros: "Pleasant crew and flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Plane was a half hour late and had to run to catch our connecting flight"
Cons: "We bought 3 seats on Business class. My seat did not have the TV working. After flying for 2 hours the flight attendant gave me a portable TV, after asking multiple times. The food was totally horrible. The catering company that American Airlines uses needs to be replaced immediately. Flying TAP, Emirates, Latam, British Airlines , their catering company is very good. Flight attendants were sarcastic and rude. The service was equivalent if you fly coach class."
Cons: "We didn't fly Finnair. All of my emails said Finnair and then when arrived at the Finnair counter they didn't have my family registered. After some panicking, we were told to try American Airlines. That is who we flew with, not Finnair"
Pros: "Great having plugs, nice seats"
Cons: "First leg of flight did not have personal TVs, so limited selection of entertainment"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Gate agent told me my bag would fit under seat but when I got on board found it would not and had to do gate check."
Pros: "They passed out headphones for the entertainment early in the flight. The meal service was efficient and more than adequate. The fight also arrived 30 minutes early."
Pros: "This small plane had a lot of leg room. Each seat had a screen behind the head rest. The plane before only had one at the start of the aisles. The whole trip was smooth."
Pros: "Got to my destination on time."
Cons: "Where to start? How about when I checked in at the counter, I asked the check in attendant to add my FF number on my ticket. They said they'll get right to it, handed me my tickets and sent me on my way. It never happened. Not a big deal, I can request the mileage post flight, but still something. Look at my tickets, that I had booked a week in advance and specifically reserved an aisle seat. My ticket says "Priority Verification," whatever that means. Turns out it means you don't have a seat, and you get the worst of the worst. So what seat is the worst? How about the middle seat in a row of 5. The middle in a row of 5, on a transoceanic flight... What kind of airlines has 5 in a row? The guy next to me spent $300 for his ticket, I spent $1200, for the same flight, and this is the kind of seat I get? The plane felt like it was straight out of the 90's, carpeted center walls, old seats, tiny tv's. Overall, a plane that felt had not been updated in decades. Took 20 minutes for a flight attendant to respond to the flight attendant sign. This wasn't during beverage or food service, just a normal time at cruising altitude. They also don't have eye masks. Every other transoceanic flight I've been on has them provided in the seat pocket, American Airlines doesn't even have them on the plane! Economy class has no USB or power outlets, the in flight entertainment is about a 5" screen in probably 260p resolution. Decent selection of movies, but you have to join the movie in progress or wait approx 10 minutes for the next movie to start. Legroom was okay unless you had one of the entertainment boxes in your way, then that takes up 30% of your space. Some of the tray tables do not have cup holders, on the top, bottom, or anywhere on it. Also my table was tilted, so every time I put a cup on it, it slid right off. Seems like a minor complaint, but eating dinner and fighting a sliding cup the whole time is a pain. Dinner and breakfast tasted decent, but you can tell American is cheap on the food. Most airlines will give something like a main course, a bread roll, fruit cup/salad, juice, small dessert. American gives you the main course and a fruit cup and that is all. Crappy utensils too. Overall, if I had paid maybe $200 for the flight, I wouldn't have any room to complain, but because American holds the government carrier contract for FY17, I had to fly on them at exorbitant cost, and would never recommend them to anyone."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
Pros: "a fast paced cabin crew! superb!"
Cons: "economy seats had my knees jammed into the seat back ahead. Couldn't sleep a wink."
Pros: "Fomos atendidos pelo JIM ao fazer o check in e despachar as malas e adoramos o atendimento. Muito simpático e gentil."
Cons: "Thought it was funny I didn't get a survey about my disaster trying to leave Boston, only the on time flight getting back. 6 hour delay leaving because of a warning light they didn't catch to begin with. Missed a whole day of vaca. No help once they deplaned us. Horrible flight. First time on American too. Paid for a window seat specific and had no window."
Cons: "$8 for cheap wine?! Disgusting."
Pros: "Very kind crew and staff."
Cons: "Newport news has no comfortable seating in the airport...no where to nap until the flight."
Cons: "Terribly disorganized with security checks and confusion since no organized area to hold people."
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive to Charlotte. I am still waiting for it one day later."
Cons: "No gluten free snacks"
Cons: "I have no made it to New York yet."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Being charged for everything. Wifi was free for my sister on Delta."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and nice!"
Cons: "The baby changing tables are way way too small and the metal hinges on them are dangerous The plane seemed small - like the seats and restrooms. It was a tight squeeze"
Cons: "The seats have to be the most uncomfortable I have ever had a chance to use. They were uncomfortable from the get go, so it is not just the length of the flight. The general cleanliness was also an issue."
Pros: "The crew inside the plane was friendly pretty much the only thing good about the travelling"
Cons: "The seats were not confortable and old and no entertainment at all ! The food was horrible and the customer service from air Canada at Montreal airport was rude and unprofessional 3 hours delay without even an apology or an explanation! I went to see a person from a air canada at a desk at the boarding gates and he wouldn't even have the courtesy to give me 1 minute of his time to explain why the plane is late his awnser was wait for the announcement and you will see his attitude was very apathetic. Overall I was very disappointed"
Cons: "No AC for the first 30 minutes after boarding so it was wacky hot and stuffy."
Pros: "Not much ch, safe arrival in BCN, the captains communication."
Cons: "The crew felt like they were wanting to yell at people and they took power pride actions to do so. If I did not know better, I thought there was a moment when the meal service was actually being tossed...but that would require effort and exertion. Asking for ice is a no no, please do not do so."
Cons: "We arrived in Munich 40 minutes late and so we missed our connecting flight."
Pros: "The crew to San Francisco"
Cons: "canada rouge"
Cons: "It was terribly hot. The flight was late by 4 hours. Extremely poor service"
Pros: "Nothing to complain"
Cons: "Total commotion at gate. Two flights jammed into one small gate area. Rep was surly and embarrased many who were confused in the commotion and ynclear communication from the boarding agent. Tv didnt work for 4 hrs."
Cons: "Because i need a visa, they don't let me abord, i can't stay even in transsit in Toronto and i didn't know, i have to change my return...."
Pros: "The crew were really great and very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "The plane on departure was extremely cold for almost the entire flight. The in-flight entertainment system didn't work on any of my electronic devices (3 cell phones and a tablet we're all attempted but none worked)"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Flight was cold, movie and tv choices were poor."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable plane ride I've ever taken. No food offered at all - everything was by purchase only. No entertainment system at all. Had to stop halfway to refuel."
Cons: "One of the Worst flights for punctuality 3.5 hours of delays ! Missed all my connections ! Over 24 hours in waiting ! Will try not to use air Canada again!!!"
Pros: "THE FOOD SELECTION WAS GREAT."
Cons: "I WAS TOLD THE FLIGHT WAS FULL AND I OVERHEARD THE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS BRIEFING THE PARENTS SAYING THERE WAS 17 INFANTS ON THIS FLIGHT. I THINK IT WOULD BE GOOD TO HAVE ALL THE PARENTS WITH INFANTS/BABIES TO SIT IN A SECTION DESIGNATED FOR THEM TO ACCOMMODATE THEIR NEEDS AS A FAMILY. IT DOESNT MAKE FOR A PLEASANT FLIGHT WITH BABIES CLIMBING ALL OVER THE SEATS. I GET THATS IT DIFFICULT TO TRAVEL WITH BABIES AND KEEP THEM ENTERTAINED WHICH IS WHY ITS BETTER TO BE AROUND OTHER PARENTS IN THE SAME SITUATION. THEY CAN SUPPORT EACH OTHER."
Cons: "There was no wi-fi!!!"
Pros: "It is convenient to take Air Canada from our town and connct in Toronto."
Cons: "The staff are barely polite and do not really care about the passengers. No smiles, Not friendly or welcoming. We trwveled in US last month.. What a difference in attitude. The food was awful, bordering in inedible. (example salad was cold canned corn with shreds of cabbage and no dressing.) Breqkfast was a piece of bread with choice of orange or tomato juice. No tea or coffee. They lost one of our bags, no apology and another company handled the search and return. No reason given to leave it behind. baggage and carry on rules are complex and complicated, and you never know when they will decide to enforce them and penalize you. If you can get there any other way don't go Air Canada."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the plane was new."
Cons: "There were no media screens or TVs. This was an Air Canada 'Rouge' flight, which is apparently a more budget version of Air Canada, but I don't think that was apparent when we bought the tickets."
Cons: "This is not an Air Canada flight, is a Rouge flight, meaning there is no service, no screens, not even blankets on board. I didn't know that until after confirming my reservation, and it makes all the difference. For a low cost flight, the service is ok, but it shouldn't be advertised as Air Canada at all."
Pros: "Hard to find positive when your knees are hard pressed to metal bracket of the seat in front of you. They should be ashamed squeezing that many seats in to make an extra buck. Shame on you Air Canada."
Cons: "There is zero legroom in the seats! At 6'3" my knees literally jammed the seat in front of me. Sad to see profit has created the need for this much discomfort."
Pros: "More comfortable but because we payed $200 to fly emergency exit"
Cons: "That we had to pay $200 for emergency exit"
Cons: "We weren't notified via email, text, or phone call that our flight had been delayed almost 2 hours. Found out at the airport. Didn't get into Montreal until 2 am. Plans were wrecked for the night. Flight crew not very friendly."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Nothing much for breakfast"
Cons: "Seats are awful no leg room. Old plane and food sucked. Horrible rude service. Will never use again."
Cons: "The plane was so uncomfortable. I could not fall asleep and there were lots of people laying down covering their entire body across the 3 seat middle section. I asked for complimentary wine and was refused my request. I do not like air canada rouge. Awful airline!"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew were pleasant and friendly. The land staff were helpful. The legroom was comfortable."
Cons: "There was not free meal"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg room, was actually painfull"
Cons: "They over sold the flight. Customer service was awful and the gate attendant was untrained. We were unable to board the plane."
Cons: "No monitor available to follow route .Too long trip w/o any entertainment."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable enough. This was also the cheapest of the overseas flights."
Cons: "You pay for wine! This is the only international flight I've ever had where I had to pay for my wine. They served dinner really late so I stayed up until almost 11 EST to eat and to drink wine before going to sleep. They were understaffed so they always seemed overwhelmed and stressed. No movies or screens."
Pros: "I liked the meal that was served and that if you didnt want to pay for the ipad, you could access TV on your phone."
Cons: "I didnt like that there were not individual TVs for my 10 hour fllght. I would have appreciated the entertainment on such a long flight, especially the movies which I could not access without the app. I also felt that more snacks should have been provided."
Pros: "Nice airplane and very friendly staff once finally on board."
Cons: "Please read previous comments (copied and pasted below) I should never have been sold the flight. The connecting time was too short - even under normal circumstances without delay I was told that I had a solid chance of missing the flight. Furthermore, once I finally made it into Montreal for my connecting flight, no one did anything to expedite my experience. They tried to get me to my final destination 24 hours after I was supposed to be there - they had a packet of accommodations for hotel and flight already prepped (mind you, I had only missing my flight by 10 minutes so clearly my seat was sold to someone else), and they didn't want to accommodate me in any other way. Explaining that I was meeting a friend who had taken another flight, I was told that the problem was not his and there was nothing I could do. Even though I found flights on Kayak and on Air Canada site for an alternate flight getting me out to Europe a few hours later, I was told "no can do." I asked him to speak to a manager and suddenly he was on the phone and (successfully) accomodating me. BUT. The flight was a connecting flight (connection in Rome to final destination Barcelona) - and he hadn't booked me the Rome to Barcelona portion. i was told - "go see the stand in Rome and they will have your ticket ready to go." They didn't have anything on their record but did tell me that this flight should not have been booked for me without having a ticket for my final destination. This was a hellish experience and I will be writing reviews and contacting Air Canada further to discuss this whole process."
Pros: "Take off and landing"
Cons: "Non reclining seats for such a long flight. Very little leg room and indifference of flight crew."
Cons: "Crazy boarding process. Had flight attendants jacket left hanging on my seat that they didn't come get until we began to taxi. No entertainment systems for a 7 hour transatlantic flight."
Pros: "I was grateful to make it onto flight but no thanks to crew from first flight who should have radioed ahead that we were on our way and late due to air canada flight I was also glad that bags got onto flight"
Cons: "The food was awful! Dinner was barely ok and don't over advertise your "light breakfast." A cold piece of banna bread slapped down on my tray barely can be called a snack! The seats on the seemingly very old 767 were painfully uncomfortable. The 320 had better seating. And what entertainment?????"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "Horrible smelly crampy cloth seats, awful food, they don't offer complementary wine and beer for international flights like other carriers, no tvs in the headrest. The flight crew works slower then I have ever observed in my over 200 flights. Took them 1hr 40min to serve what they called "dinner", Delta and others knocks it out in 30!!! And don't get thirsty, You'll die of dehydration before you get a drop of water. They treat ice like its gold. 2 cubes for each drink. If u ask for more u get one more cube. Lol. It was just a horrible experience! I will never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "The price could not be beat and the leg room was decent."
Cons: "Food was pretty sad and we could not hook up out iPad to the entertainment options because we didn't download an app beforehand."
Cons: "Misinformation on baggage allowance for Tango flights."
Pros: "We would have needed to download an app on our personal digital device and view entertainment that way. No screens in the plane."
Cons: "Poorest over seas flight ever been on. No tv's not even pretzels. Leg room is the worst I have ever had. Last time I flew over seas it was fabulous. Hours on a flight packed like sardines and no entertainment to speak of. No movie, no tv and no leg room. My husbands knees touched the back of seat in front. Breakfast was a slice of banana bread. Will never fly Air Canada again"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!"
Cons: "You need to tell people what to expect on Air Canada Rogue - NEVER AGAIN!!"
Pros: "There is not one thing that was good about this flight. Bad plane, bad service, bad food. That sums it up. Will talk to as many travelers as I can to tell them to avoid this nightmare."
Cons: "No entertainment on board. No complimentary drinks. A piece of cold banana bread literally thrown on the tray for breakfast. Called the airline when reservation was made and told it would have entertainment and complimentary drinks. The switch to Rouge was a bait and switch. Rouge is from the 1970s. Long flights to sit and stare at the back of seat. Crowded seat at that. NEVER WILL FLY AIR CANADA AGAIN"
Cons: "I would like a flight map to follow the flight and have more information"
Pros: "The agent was able to seat is together from the pronating point through to our destination."
Cons: "Everything was explained"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and polite, ensuring that the leg of our rerouted flight from Toronto to Frankfurt was comfortable."
Cons: "Not being able to complete my original itinerary as planned (see above)."
Pros: "There was nothing to like because I did not fly on Air Canada to Barcelona."
Cons: "For an unexplained reason, our first flight was delayed 45 plus minutes in Phoenix while cargo was moved from the forward cargo bay to the aft cargo bay. This caused us to miss our connection in Toronto. Air Canada then proceeded to rebook us on a flight leaving 2 days later. After an extended period of time, they finally rescheduled us for a flight to a different city in Europe and we had to catch another flight from there our final destination, Barcelona. The total additional travel time was extended by approximately 8 hours, causing us to lose the better part of our first day."
Pros: "Very helpful and friendly crew, that is hard to come by these days. Movie choices were great."
Cons: "I have this problem with most flights, on-boarding is a mess people just herd around when it’s not their group."
Cons: "We were 3 hours lake due to a mechanical problem. We missed our connection in Barcelona. We received no support from United. Left on our own in a foreign country and had to scramble to rebook ourselves at considerable extra expense. Totally unacceptable!"
Cons: "I thought that this flight was booked through Luftansa, at least that is what the ticket said. After waiting in line at the Lufthansa desk, I was told that the flight was actually through United, so I had to go and wait in line at an even longer United desk. Then, United charged me $60 for my bag!!"
Pros: "Ronald our flight attendant made our first flight experience to Europe great. He was amazing."
Cons: "I would not change anything."

Cons: "Very cramped quarters in middle service was ok"
Cons: "Way too hot in the cabin. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The food was OK."
Cons: "I have been flying all over the world on many different airlines. This was my first international flight on United. The 777 we were on had NO inflight intertainment system! The HVAC system switched from to Hot to to Cold and was mostly Freezing. The reading light controls were cross wired from different seats and aimed all wrong. The Flight attendants were mostly old and grumpy."
Pros: "Early arrival after on time departure"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Flight was pleasunt overall and sits were comfortable, flight crue was pleasurable and polite, I enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Food was really bad, it was not cooked all way through and chicken dish didn’t have any chicken but only mush as well as rice was not cocked. For united airlines, the food should be much better"
Pros: "First off I’m a Diabetic and some of my diabetic medication and or supplies are with me and some in my LOST checked luggage. I currently say lost because it Day 3 in Ibiza and the luggage never left Newark with my flight originally and is supposedly in Barcelona while I’m here. Called everyday for updates on my bag and they give you very little useful info. Oh and the 7:45 departure last Thursday didn’t leave until 2:30am, then they kicked us out of our economy plus seats picked for comfort and tossed us in middle aisle seats some place else which were ridiculously uncomfortable. There’s no entertainment except in first class and this is a 777 huge jet. Filing a claim, sending a letter to their ceo, a letter to he DOT, and grabbing a good lawyer friend for counsel on this because it’s a disaster. I had to buy everything I needed which isn’t enough and I’m also running out of diabetic supplies since the rest I’d my lost / delayed luggage. So delayed flight by 6hrs, kicked out of original seats, lost and delayed luggage, airlines seems to refuse to send it to my hotel through other carriers, 3days and no luggage and wondering if they are going to send it to Ibiza while I’m heading back to Barcelona today. No one calls me or emails or updates me on any status changes of where my bag is and what’s going on. Their customer service sucks and it’s some guy or girl in another country who gives no fks about your situation. I will never fly with United again"
Cons: "Everything see above"
Pros: "Very enthusiastic friendly and responsive crew"
Cons: "Luggage zipper on a new suitcase was broken. No entertainment and food just ok"
Cons: "There was an odor of raw sewage the entire flight. Myself and my son were feeling ill by the time the flight was over."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Not much legroom in economy"
Cons: "We booked Lufthansa and paid more for our ticket to have this airline. We ended up on a united flight which we did not want. They have no TVs and tiny seats which is absolutely ridiculous considering it’s international travel. If we book one airline we expect to get the airline we paid for."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and tried to help me!"
Cons: "My seat was changed 24 hours before the flight inexplicably from an aisle seat to a center seat which is problematic for me. I will most likely not book through Kayak or Lufthansa again on a United codeshare because of this experience."
Pros: "Good communication from the Captain throughout the delay"
Pros: "This was one of the worst domestic flights I’ve ever taken. United Airlines had a maintenance problem I’m delayed this plane by one hour every hour for six hours keeping us captive at the airport !! Horrible service horrible Airline I will try to avoid this at all costS."
Cons: "United Airlines portion of the flight from Brussels to IAD. My wife and I were seated in separate parts of the plane each in middle seats at the end of the boarding process when there was no longer any overhead room to store our belongings. Uncaring, unaccommodating crew, waiting area with not enough seats, and cramped seating on the plane with no possibility of sleep during an arduous seven hour flight."

Cons: "Flight was to short."
Pros: "On rime"
Pros: "Coordinated itinerary. ..well articulated"

Cons: "Food was not good."
Pros: "Loved the fast boarding and quick flight! The crew did their best to inform us about our various delays."
Cons: "Cmon dudes, just plan ahead. Don't leave us to taxi on the tarmac for an hour before take off, only to do the same once we land! This shouldn't take quite so long."
Pros: "We arrived in one piece"
Cons: "I've flown 2.5 MM miles over the past 2 decades and United service has deteriorated. Pilot made up some time so arrived 1 hr late then waited another hour for our baggage."
Pros: "I always like the multiple entertainment options with the seat back screens. The dinner meal was much better than I expect in coach."
Pros: "Comfy seats and they offered a beverage"
Cons: "Our plane smelled horrible: like a bus full of HS boys after playing basketball in Satan's sauna for 2 1/2 hrs. No entertainment options but it was less than an hour flight so didn't really care. Our flight attendant said nothing about our carry on being bigger than the compartments of our tiny plane so we walked to the back with our bag just to bring it bag and them check it"
Pros: "Everthing, except the typical cramped quarters."
Cons: "The cramped seating"
Pros: "Short flight.... no food or ENT. But quick easy and pretty on time. Thx."
Pros: "Gate staff was nice."
Cons: "Difficult to understand steward on flight"
Pros: "Great experience. Good service"
Pros: "I like the television system"
Cons: "You would think that after all the problems United has had recently that they would make an effort to be a little more customer service oriented. Every flight attendant was rude and dismissive. The "personal entertainment" on your own device barely worked. Never flying this airline again."
Cons: "Waited for clearance to take off for about 10-15 minutes on the tarmac."
Cons: "Worst trip ever! United overbooked the flight, and then I got delayed in LAX and had to cancel my trip all together! No planes in to Duluth or MSP until Monday. Had to fly home to Monterey!! Totally pissed customer right now"
Pros: "They pick and choose who they thank after a flight. No entertainment, bag of pretzel for food."
