Flight was delayed over 13 hours. Very frustrating getting updates and had to advocate after being told no numerous times to be informed.
Delta making it happen. Great flight all around. So good I booked my next Delta flight while airborne.
Pros: "The sanitizing of the aircraft was beyond expectations. The personal wipes were a plus so we could clean the areas around our seats to our satisfaction. The individual snack bags are a great idea to minimize handling."
Pros: "Crew is amazing!"
Cons: "The Plane!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "We didn’t get offered a snack or drink."
Pros: "Flight attendant coughed in my face twice without covering her mouth while I was seated and she was passing out drinks and snacks"
Pros: "The croissants were great!"
Cons: "Every thing was good"
Cons: "They left without us. They could have waited a few minutes knowing we were on a delayed flight but didn't. They actually left early."
Pros: "Crew was great, food was tasty"
Cons: "A little bit more leg room and newer sits"
Pros: "Excellent flight - smooth, comfortable seats (exit row with lots of leg room), in-flight entertainment was great, snacks and drinks served when I needed. Got to Cincinnati earlier than expected. Couldn't have gone better really."
Cons: "I will say the flight to Orlando including an upcharge of $100 for a bag that was 10lbs overweight. I was INCREDIBLY frustrated at the crazy price. I understand fees would apply to overweight bags but $100???? Kind of ridiculous"
Pros: "Crew very efficient. Greeted us with a smile. Movies sere good but hard to hear."
Cons: "Tried to get comfort seats but sold out way ahead. Long trip for not much leg room."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great! We had rough weather for the entire flight, and they handled everything great"
Cons: "Plane too small to have any on board entertainment"
Cons: "Worst transatlantic flight in 40 years. Filthy old seats and mine had a wet ironed stain. The seat in front of me was broken and reclined into my lap. That made the screen for entertainment unusable. The reading lights didn’t work. The toilets were a mess and never serviced."
Pros: "The staff was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "My husband and I could not fit in the seats without our shoulders being on top of each other. My shoulder was in the aisle way. I am 5’8 and my knees were up againstthe seat in front of me. Our flight from CVG to DFW had none of these problems."
Pros: "Delra was very accommodating to get us on a later flight today due to a medical emergency the previous day. Thank you Delta, especially for your understanding."
Pros: "Cincinnati airport was clean and efficient"
Cons: "MCO airport gate was a mess and did not have easy access to charge phones."
Pros: "Very kind staff, no complaints about my guitar and even helped carry it to a closet (thanks sooooo much), nice veggie meal, everything was on time."
Cons: "Pretty rough turbulence, but that wasn’t their fault of course."
Pros: "Food was excellent. The flight attendants took great "care" of us. Entertain system was great."
Cons: "10.5 hours of flying"
Pros: "Crew were cordial and attentive."
Cons: "Entertainment system. Seats comfort on Boeing Jets. Customs is Munich is to slow. Many German employees walking and standing around while passengers were confused as to where to go and how to proceed."
Cons: "This was my most uncomfortable flight ever. I am 94 years old and the seat was so cramped and small that the entire 3 hours were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Uneventful and on time"
Cons: "The seats did not recline/lean back. Especially on an overnight flight I was hoping to lean back a little to sleep."
Pros: "The food is always good on delta, entertainment is great as well, and the seats are comfy as long as you’re not seating next to someone obnoxious."
Cons: "The staff is always ao disorganized, sometimes even unprofessional, they talk about other passengers, their shoes don’t match, when they did announcements on the PA they forgot what they were saying or they made mistakes and had to correct hen making it all very confusing. I fly often so I know the drill but those things must make the flight super uncomfortable to someone inexperienced."
Pros: "Never got ticket or email or booking number. Called my bank they said charge still pending. I asked if they could cancel. Bank said yes. Told them to cancel and rebooked throught Delta website. Got eticet. But charge was not cancelled. At airport I had 2 tickets. Working with bank. Today gate agent gave me 1st ticket number. Used Kayak and delt never had this issue. Email not changed or misspelled."
Cons: "No eticket or booking number recieved."
Pros: "Great pilot.."
Cons: "Jam packed too small and the lady flight attendant was to bossy and not that welcoming, she was more interested in being more of a drill sergeant than the comfort of the passengers"
Pros: "Sky Lounge at SFO and onboard entertainment"
Cons: "The male flight attendant my section was very unpleasant to the elderly passengers in my area and just left me very uneasy about the flight"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "Excellent job and keep it up"
Pros: "Kept on time."
Cons: "The flight attendant was completely rude to me when I was getting a pacifier for my baby out of my luggage during boarding and all of the captains announcements were garbled, rapid and unable to understand."
Cons: "It was announced that there would be lunch shortly after takeoff and then a snack about 2 hours before landing. The lunch was ok, but then the snack (multiple small items) was offered about 4 hours before landing and then an additional snack (mini pot pie) was offered about 2 hrs before landing. This is too much action for people who are trying to get some sleep. Also, abrupt and hard landing."
Pros: "The Flight Personnel was extremely helpful and kind."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "Great experiencing getting on and off the plane"
Cons: "No power to charge"
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled so we didn't have to run to catch our connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight was delayed indefinitely. Delta supposedly booked me on united flight but made an error."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working."
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and there was more than enough. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "On my flight from Munich to Atlanta, the movies and tv series wouldn't play. Only the games worked."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Lost luggage,, will be delivered to our house"
Pros: "Not much to like since the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. The system tried to automatically rebook us but gave us a new itinerary from our original departure point, apparently un aware that we had already left. So, we were stuck in Atlanta airport with no good way to our final destination. Instead of waiting for 22 hours for the next available flight, or driving for 7 hours from Atlanta to Cincinnati, we had to fly into another city and drive to Cincinnati from there AT OUR OWN EXPENSE. It was a rebooking nightmare."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. We had a two hour delay on the ground due to thunderstorms, but the pilot kept us informed and the flight attendants answered any questions and helped with everything. The pilot even walked down the isle asking people if they had any questions."
Cons: "We booked our tickets through American Express over 3 months before the flight. Delta has a new policy that these tickets are not allowed to have certain privileges that tickets purchased on their own site have. Unbeknown to us, one of these is the ability to select your seat. On the ride from CVG to FLL we were assigned seats in the back of the plane, but at least we were next to each other. On the way back, we were not assigned a seat at all. We arrived to the airport almost 4 hours before the flight and were still not assigned a seat and were told we would have to speak to the gate agent. Even we when spoke to the gate agent, they still did not have a seat. It was not until we had already started the boarding process that they called us up and told us that we were going to be sitting 5 rows apart, both in a middle seat."
Pros: "I have not flown Delta in more than 4 years and was pleasently surprised at how good the service was. Check in firendly, Boarding on time or before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 40 minutes and arrived 2 hours later."
Pros: "Seat back tv’s"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours, food was mediocre at best"
Pros: "A very quick flight, but the crew was quite friendly!"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable and the food was decent."
Pros: "The flight on time. Good crew. Good service."
Pros: "The flight was seamless,appreciated the frequent food and drink service"
Cons: "The boarding was priority and then everyone else. Didn’t realize economy boarding had no real order."
Pros: "The red wine was good and the crew made sure that we were well hydrated. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "The quality of the meals was poor - tasteless food, possibly loaded with preservatives."
Pros: "Cabin crew's service was excellent! Very attentive and friendly. Special diet (gluten-free) dinner was delicious. Lavatories located downstairs."
Cons: "Economy seating was too tight. Not enough space or leg room."
Pros: "Flight attendants Was nice and friendly, I do like theirs Sevice ."
Pros: "Loved it!"
Cons: "Liked it all"
Pros: "Crew were professional and friendly"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "It was run by UA, better seats then Austrian or Lufthansa in Economy. On time. Very efficient."
Cons: "Could not choose seats online,"
Pros: "Spacious and quiet aircraft, lots of legroom in certain exit row seats. Friendly cabin crew. Compared to the loud and bumpy ride on the Lufthansa 747, the A380 was way better."
Cons: "Moderate delays at each end—waiting for transfer passengers delayed our departure half an hour. We made up the time en route but then sat on the tarmac at LAX because the gate was occupied. I think my seat mates missed their connection. They broke the handle on my rollaboard (checked due to stingy cabin baggage allowance)."
Pros: "Great, polite, and well dressed flight attendants. All flight attendants treated us with care, they were kind, and provided exceptional service."
Pros: "The staff and food were exceptional!"
Cons: "Late arrival in Munich, missed connection to Krakow, no rebooking and nobody cared that we, 3 people, get to our destination the same day. Spent 12 hours ( 10 am to 10 pm ) at Munich airport not knowing if and/or when we get on the plane, hoping to be on 10 pm flight, not making any connection all day long. Suggestions to fly through different city or on different airline we’re met with shrug and “ not possible “ reply. Having one Omaha Krakow Lufthansa ticket made no difference to anybody. Horrible experience specially that one of us was 80 years old. Will never fly with Lufthansa again. None of my friends will. Dreading my flight back. Kasia Bradley"
Cons: "During the main meal many many passengers had no option for the main dish.. Only vegetarian dish! Many passengers didn't eat."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Food use to be better"
Cons: "Got a little hot in the cabin"
Cons: "Wheelchair assistance did not arrive at gate."
Pros: "I enjoyed the patience of the crew and the responsibility they took with everything they did."
Cons: "The noise and the lack of space in my specific area."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Missed my connection due to airline delay and was put on a flight 12 hours later"
Cons: "The flight was transferred to a smaller plane, either because there were few passengers (the first story we heard) or because of mechanical problems on the original craft (the second story). Business class was oversold as a result, and boarding was delayed for an hour while they waited for enough BC passengers to accept 800 euros for the downgrade to economy plus. They repeatedly threatened to cancel the flight rather than raise the offer. Eventually enough knuckled under and we were allowed to leave. Some no doubt missed connections because of this petty brinkmanship. The funny coda is that because the plane was so undersold, anyone in economy that wanted their own row could have one, while economy plus was packed with the embittered and downgraded."
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice and efficient"
Pros: "I have never flown with Lufthansa, but now, I will fly with them any chance I get. The crew were amazing. Friendly and attentive. For airplane food, it was very good and tasty. Received headphones, a pillow and a blanket for the flight. Legroom was good, but probably cramped for people over 6'0" tall. 24 hour online check-in was smooth an trouble free. I like having the boarding pass on my phone. No paper to carry around."
Pros: "Convenient connections, fantastic airport, new aircraft with many large toilets in lower deck, super professional crew, really make a big difference when travelling 9 hours with 3 young kids."
Cons: "Air didn't work, stewardess were rude"
Pros: "Munich airport is very nice and clean."
Cons: "The plane was late arriving and we had to sit on the tarmac after we got to Frankfurt for a while which made us only have 15 minutes to go through customs and get our connecting flight. The staff would not let us get off first on the plane even though I told them we were very very late. Ridiculous to have to wait for people to stand in the aisles and get their baggage from above. This makes others late and very inconsiderate. Charge people that use the overhead compartment!!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Food and beverages were pretty stingy"
Pros: "Over the length of the 9.5 hour flight, my time in the Economy class was that the crew were professional, courteous and especially helpful. There is a magnitude of difference between the attitude and professionalism of this airline over any American airline I have flown. In the future, Lufthansa will be my first consideration."
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Everyone kind of ran up."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Competent, friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight"
Pros: "Brand new Airbus 350 on the first transatlantic flight for Lufthansa was very nice"

Pros: "in flight entertainment, bathrooms, and charging capability"
Cons: "Not enough service/availability of water"
Pros: "Given free upgrade. Efficient services."
Pros: "Love the variety of entertainment options on such a long flight. The food is always so good, you make me feel so cared for."
Pros: "The crew made this flight in my experience. The crew was very professional and quick to respond."
Cons: "The late boarding due to technical and mechanical problems at the airport Lufthansa gate."
Pros: "Even though the flight lasted 12 hours, it was enjoyable. I feel like the crew put the best effort in order to make passengers feel comfortable. They served two meals and two snacks. Beverages were distributed many times. The leg room and the entertaining system were great. I would love to take another flight with this company in the future."
Cons: "I cannot think of anything."
Pros: "The upgrade to business class"
Cons: "Not Applicable"
Cons: "My video player did not work properly for the whole 11.5hrs of flight from Munich to LA. It was extremely tough to get it to play a movie. I am not blaming the crew, but their only suggestion was to restart it... Which I did... several times... but the player had a life of its own. Eventually I found a way to be able to get to a movie and get it to play, but it was not easy. I wish that there would be an extra player that could be provided as a replacement... Thank you."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient. Food was not bad."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating (a first for me) they really did an outstanding job to make sure we were comfortable...they seemed to be actually enjoying what they were doing :) The food tasted amazing and was plenty..this is also a first for me, I had never said that the food on a flight was good before. The crew walked around the cabin many time throughout the long flight with drinks on their trays (not just the usual drink service) which was much appreciated. Overall they get a 10 from me! This was my first time flying with Lufthansa. I will most definitely fly with them again and recommend to all my friends."
Cons: "the selection of movies could have been a bit better. Although much to choose from such as tv shows etc., more recent movies would have been a plus."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Very small cramped seats in business class. Would not fly again."
Pros: "Easy flight nice bottle of reisling"
Cons: "No on flight entertainment"
Pros: "we love flying with Lufthansa. the staff are always so helpful and accommodating!"
Cons: "the food was good not great and the movie selections wasn't good compared to other flights. The comfort..........well, it's an airplane."
Cons: "When i left munich to newark i found out crew of lufftusa was very rude with me during check in."
One airline attendant at the gate is not enough. Due to incompetence of the airline attended missed my flight home, which ruined my vacation.
My suitcase did not arrive. Still waiting …..
Loved it! Even better I had the whole row to myself!
Pros: "Boarding was easy, flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Seats were snug, granted we had the less expensive tickets."
Pros: "The movie section and food were very good"
Cons: "The temperature of the flight was out of control it was very hot for the full 9 hr there was something wrong with the plane and the crew was not addressing it."
Cons: "Forferdelig innsjekking, lang kø, kun en person som skulle håndtere alle. Bag drop aksepterte kun en innsjekket bagasje for 2 personer selv om vi skulle kunne sjekke inn 2 hver."
Pros: "entertainment in the back of the front seat with great choice of movies"
Cons: "I would have liked to have had the chance to purchase a better seat. When I asked about it at check-in the plane was full. So I was squeezed in the middle section which made it quite uncomfortable, especially if you have to get up more frequently as an older person, but your neighbor is asleep. A notification about the possibilities for seat purchases would have been great!"
Cons: "We were late and my impression is that the crew is not well organized and costed the delay."
Cons: "The flight was over 2 hours late leaving Copenhagen, and then we sat at the gate while they unloaded bags to find the luggage of some passengers who decided not to be on that flight. Then it was total chaos at O'Hare. Very few SAS ticket agents who were not prepared to deal with the many passengers who had missed connections. We spent the night on hard chairs in the airport when we could have been re-booked on a flight out that night if they had been at all organized and efficient."
Cons: "Noen hadde spydd på bordet på sete 1A, flyttet til 2A"
Pros: "We mentioned it was our anniversary and thought about moving up to SAS Plus, but the cost was not an option to us. She moved us up before we got on the plane! Extremely nice!!"
Pros: "This airline is punctual and the pilots are good."
Cons: "The service is minimal, you pay for any alcohol and the food is nothing to write home about."
Pros: "Overall a nice comfortable flight, no problem at all with the flight itself. Staff at check- in and on board were polite and efficient."
Cons: "70€ seems a little steep for luggage, but we were able to rearrange our liquids."
Cons: "my ONLY complaint is that I preordered a VEGETARIAN meal and got a VEGAN meal. NOT a big deal, but they should be aware of the difference."
Pros: "reasonably comfortable seats"
Cons: "no thing to report"
Cons: "Everything, the service was terrible the food was terrible, we will never fly SAS again."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Charged 70 Euros for one bag. Expected to pay something but thought that was a bit much. Plane could've been more neat."
Pros: "Efficient processing of passengers onto aircraft."
Pros: "Movie selection Staff Food"
Cons: "Drinks were expensive"
Pros: "premium economy"
Cons: "nothing, it was great!"
Pros: "Cheap, more than basic, and comfortable. No major complains."
Cons: "The o my thing that could be improved is a lrger selection of movies, and better food. Food is acerage compared to everything else."
Pros: "My first time flying SAS on my trip to Europe from USA and I was highly impressed. Everything was efficient and comfortable. One of the highlights was the check in - this is often a long and frustrating process, however this could not have been easier and so quick. I was very happy and made my entire check in experience simple and efficient. I will be going straight to SAS for my next trip to Europe, no question. Thank you very much!!! Daniel Valewink"
Cons: "There was no food so can't give food any stars"
Pros: "It was100 % flawless and I recommend the SAS airline to all. The airline staff is great and the food is good."
Cons: "As previously stated, I think the airline should do a better job in answering phone calls. If they do answer the phone (1-800-221-2350), they either put you on hold for a whole day or, if you leave your phone no. and name to have them call you back, they never do . I am not the only person who has this experience. It is too bad because if this continues, the airline will loose business and I would hate to see that. However, I still will use KAYAK"
Pros: "Punctual and very cordial staff."
Pros: "I have no complaints. Will recommend SAS to all my friend. Thank you."
Cons: "I do not like the way they conduct their business from the office never returning phone calls as we are trying to get our questions answered. Would also be nice if the airline would use JFK instead of Liberty in Newark. Thank you."
Pros: "Plane was clean, flight staff was friendly."
Cons: "No problems!"
Cons: "The 70 euro bag check fee"
Pros: "Clean planes, working entertainment, decent food"
Cons: "Delay (1 hour) in departing"
Cons: "Noisy people in flight around. Attendant did not care to bring water when asked. Secret luggage fees of 70 EUR one way Never SAS again"
Cons: "Discovered that I would have to pay 70 euro for my bag check-in. Not fun at all."
Cons: "No food, no entertainment. Bring a book."
Cons: "Crew was rude. Had to ask 3 times for a drink before I actually got it and they snarled at me about having to pay. I didn't care about paying, at that pout I would have paid $100 for some water. Seats are RIDICULOUSLY small and when the person in front of you puts their seat back it's impossible to do anything. Forgot having your tray table down."
Pros: "The food and onboard service was excellent THe entertainment was plentiful and varied."
Cons: "The seats were to close together. I am not one to get claustrophobia but 5 hours in I felt it and I nearly bolted off the plane after the 10+ hour flight. UGH. Shoulder to shoulder, knees touching the seat in front of you, and only a few inches to recline. UGH. We tried to upgrade when we arrived at Oslo and again in Stockholm but the personnel at both stations were rude and not helpful. UGH."
Pros: "It was quick. Can't rate food or entertainment as I didn't use"
Cons: "Seats v cramped and even w a window seat I was squashed by big man next to me. Lucky it was a short flight"
Cons: "Miserable cramped seating ."
Pros: "Entertainment system."
Cons: "Food. In flight announcements were barely audible at times."
Cons: "Delay for 2 hours, without anny compesation"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled 2 minutes after departure time. Staff was rude when we tried asking questions. It took an additional 2 hours to rebook on another airline and we had to spend an extra night in a hotel near the airport."
Cons: "Gate attendant in Stockholm was not pleasant to my travelling partner, when she was concerned about me being able to get on the flight in the rush from leaving the very delayed flight from Reykjavik. she was not empathetic; was unhelpfully directive, impatient."
Pros: "I was informed by email the evening before my return flight back to London that the flight had been cancelled. I tried calling multiple SAS offices overnight, and finally reached someone the morning of my flight and was rebooked to a different flight, via Berlin. When I got to the airport the booking hadn't been updated, so I had to go through the entire process again with customer service. Because of the flight cancellation and the difficulties rebooking, I was not able to book my luggage so I was charged a penalty fee at the airport when I was finally checked in for the flight via Berlin, and paid much more for my bag than I should have."
Cons: "Economy seating even for a small person is extremely confining. It made the overseas flight uncomfortable and unpleasant."
Pros: "Arlanda airport is quiet and fast. Security line took less than 5 minutes. The terminal was quiet and had a good place to lie down and take a nap. I did not feel anxious or tense like I always do in US airports. SAS is a great airline with pleasant crew and decent food. (Great food by airline standards.) Entertainment is great too -- lots of free movies on the built-in screen. My only complaint is that the airplane wifi wasn't free."
Pros: "attendants were very nice and attentive."
Pros: "A nice flight attendant got me a vegetarian meal even though I didn't request it ahead of time. I enjoyed the movies. Every flight was on time."
Cons: "The food on the outgoing flight was too greasy. Even though I usually don't eat meat. I ate some of the chicken dinner and didn't like it. My husband did."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, nice quick flight"
Cons: "Movie selections were a bit dated"
Cons: "Why does SAS require passengers to use a kiosk to get boarding passes and luggage tags and then make you stand in a queue for 35 minutes just to drop off the luggage at de Gaulle airport in Paris."
Pros: "Very comfortable, lots of space between seats!"
Cons: "Flying on United was surprisingly much better than our flight on Lufthansa"
Cons: "The staff at the United gate in Munich was rude and not helpful at all."
Cons: "The actual flight was fine. It was the delay, followed by what seemed changing info on when it was happening. Every 30 minutes it changed. Five minutes before the flight, the info board said it had been moved to 9:40pm and was changed from Gate 3 to Gate 30, a very long distance to get to. However t"
Pros: "Excellent crew and service."
Cons: "Food was terrible - extremely small portions and tasteless."
Pros: "Aisle seat"
Cons: "Snack options"
Cons: "Get seated in a seat i paid extra 37$ for .very disappointed"
Pros: "Entertainment was quite good"
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable for long travel"
Pros: "The seats were surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "Vegetarian selection of food could have been better."
Pros: "Polaris seating is very roomy and comfortable"
Cons: "No jet bridge for our flight. We had to be bused way across the airport and climb stairs to board, which made the whole boarding order meaningless. Surely this flight deserves a jet bridge from the actual terminal gate. Also, our bags did not come out in Houston and a United person told us there were no more coming, so we cleared customs and went to our next flight. This caused us to wait 1 hour in San Antonio for our bags to show up on the next Houston flight!"
Pros: "Didn’t make this flight."
Cons: "Didn’t make this flight."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment, unhealthy food and very bad space"
Pros: "Friendly crew Friendly Gate Staff Super fast boarding"
Cons: "Seats were tight Overpriced upsell for “preferred” seating"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "It turned out that we were on stand by (without anyone telling us until the morning of the flight) and did not know if we were going to fly out. We could not select any seats at check in and only found out our seats a few hours before the flight. It was quite unpleasant and stressful as my husband and I were flying with our two children and faced a real possibility of not being able to sit together or getting bumped off a flight all together. It was a code shared flight between Lufthansa and United and each airline kept sending us to the other to get any answers or help. neither were helpful. It made it for an extremely frustrating experience."
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "On this particular flight for some reason the crew served food before drinks."
Pros: "New flight reservation took us directly from Newark to Phoenix."
Cons: "This flight was totally cancelled. New reservation took us to Newark. Here the crowds were very long, baggage took over 20 min. to arrive, missed our connecting flight and had to wait 4 more hours for next flight. The flight out of Newark was held on the tarmac for 40 min."
Pros: "Entertainment variety and selection. Food and Drink. Had the curry chicken, surprisingly good."
Cons: "Not enough food & drink service. On an 11 hour flight went 4 hours without a visit from food/drink cart. On the flight from Houston to Munich the food was lousy but we got several more visits/opportunities for drinks."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! thank you!"
Cons: "The screens are outdated and don't respond properly to touch, old movies, old games, no live-news (available at other airlines - e.g. LH)."
Pros: "Food was really good and I watched some great movies. I was happy to see that there is much more room on Int'l flights than domestic flights. The seats were comfy."
Cons: "I was pulled out of line when trying to board at the gate for not having a 'stamp' on my boarding pass which would tell them I went through security (even though I had gone through three levels of security!) I was sent back to a gate that had no idea what I was talking about and I became frantic, as my son was about to board a flight that I could not. I finally found what was needed (after being sent through the line and patted down this time!) and I ran back to the gate to be the last person on the plane. It was nerve wracking to say the least. Also my son's video touch screen was not working properly. I realize that it is hard to keep these operating well, with all the use they get, but it was annoying as this happened on the flight over as well."
Cons: "We waited in line to check baggage because it was Lufthansa and got to the front before finding out it was a united flight. No where did it say United check in. Just aggravating."
Cons: "However flight from Athens to Munich sucked. Charged for carry on at check in , even thou others before boarding were checked there’s for free since flight was full. If that was the case I should of gotten mine free. Wish United would drop Lufthansa airlines."
Pros: "The flight was actually with United not Lufthansa."
Cons: "It was like they changed our Lufthansa flight to United. I was not able to get our seat until the last minute at the counter. Luckily the crew was good and helpful atherwise I could not even sit with my husband. My chair was broken so I had to sit very straight. The screen was very tiny like only half size of the one on Luthansa flight. The food was only so so as well but that was just my personal taste."
Pros: "I am muslim, but I forgot to arrange the kind of food I would prefer during the flight, and the gentlement I talked to said let me see what I could do to help you about it, and few minutes later came up with muslim meal. I was really happy! Thank you all again."
Pros: "Plenty of room, great cabin service"
Cons: "Plane was way late, several gate changes had me chasing my tail in Chicago...and that is not a friendly airport for incoming international flights on a good day."
Cons: "The movies were outdated mostly"
Cons: "The wireless connection was super spotty"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Flight staff was good!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, it was re-booked, but lots of walking and waiting especially for a older person. Chicago busy , more walking, home much later,.. still waiting for one suitcase."
Cons: "Terrible position of the seat. In between bathrooms and crying kids when I had requested the exact opposite. Food was awful. I had a vegetarian meal."
Cons: "We were delayed 3 hours on the tarmac with no food/water due to a mechanical issue that should have been checked and cleared before they boarded the flight. Also flying economy was awful. Hardly any room in the seats."
Cons: "She was not able to fly to Germany even though we paid for the ticket"
Cons: "The boarding process was unnecessarily complicated by United Airlines. I was made to wait right until take off time without any information while they "confirmed my visa" on which I entered the US multiple times in the past."
Cons: "can't believe you still have those low quality touch screens. they are very non-touch sensitive, and don't respond well to attempted touch commands."
Cons: "We booked what was labeled a Lufthansa flight and paid extra because we had flown Lufthansa before and thought the service and the flight were excellent. Imagine our surprise when we found out it was a United Flight. We were on the plane for almost 11 hours and we just had a small lunch and a snack that was tiny. We were starving when we got off. Next time, British Airways gets my money. I want to know what airline I am paying for all the way through without the switching shenanigans."
Cons: "Munich - Houston overnight flight. No breakfast. No good."
Cons: "The plane was so old that it just seemed like it should be retired. My flight was also delayed 45 minutes. They made passengers get off the plane because of a weight restriction it was absurd that my luggage took 40 minutes to come off the plane"
Pros: "Very efficient personnel. Clean plane, nice big bathroom."
Cons: "I politely asked the attendant if they might have coconut or almond milk and felt like I was laughed at."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I was traveling alone with an infant and since the flight wasn't full, the ticketing agent moved seats around and gave me an entire row! It was so nice to have the extra space with all my things and to get up freely when needing to change my sons diaper. There was also a changing table in the bathroom which was much needed."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options. Attentive crew. Food and beverage selections were great."
Cons: "the side dish for dinner was some oat/grain something that wasn't very tasty."
Cons: "Upgraded to first class the trip to was great the return was terrible even the first class seating was old and uncomfortable then my bag was not at my final location (direct flight) was told it wouldn't scan!? Same bag used numerous times then I was told I'd have it the next day by noon call at 2 pm and it says it's on its way them receive a call at 430 pm saying he just left the airport wtf?! Just over all very bad service and didn't get a damn thing for my troubles."
Pros: "Crew members were actually quite rude at times."
Pros: "The food really was tasty"
Pros: "Check-in in Munich was friendly, professional, efficient. Pleasant flight. On time."
Cons: "Condescending flight attendant There should be an announcement for people to close their shades at cruising altitude. Bright sunlight hitting your peripheral vision is very stressful."
Pros: "punctuality, crew service"
Cons: "everything was Ok, average intercontinental flight"
Pros: "Staff was very nice. Clean cabin."
Cons: "Very difficult to make selection on the video tv systems. The breakfast was just a microwaved sandwich with weird cheese and 1 thin slice of processed turkey, that's it?"
Cons: "Old equipment. Average service. Lumpy seat. Terrible food."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was absolutely amazing. They were helpful, they were very kind, and very pleasant. Probably the best flight crew I've ever had. Despite originally being annoyed that I wasn't allowed to pick/change my seat, I somehow miraculously got an economy plus seat so I had what felt like a first-class amount of space."
Cons: "Again, the flight was delayed. Despite originally being told that we were trying to get out ahead of storms so we wanted to get going quickly, we ended up boarding and then sitting there for probably an hour and a half. The pilot/copilot were great at letting us know what was going on, but the fact that both the first and second leg of my journey were delayed was excrutiately annoying. Having already been traveling for over 8 hours, the last thing I wanted to do was be even later and extend the flight even longer, obviously. The entertainment also was not available due to some problem in the circuit for the entirety of sitting there waiting to taking off and the first 15 minutes of the trip. Again, the attendants did everything they could and were very attentive, it was just frustrating to not really be sure that entertainment was going to be available for the 9 hour flight you just sat down for. Thereafter the entertainment was great. The food was, again, pretty mediocre compared to other transatlantic flights I've taken. The lasagna was not very good tasting at all. The sandwich they brought near the end of the flight was tasty though. Another plus was full sized cans of juice as opposed to a tiny glass. Honestly once this flight got off the ground it was good. However the combination of the delays, plus my terrible previous flight (which was the one directly operated by Lufthansa, the second flight was farmed out to United) just made the whole journey pretty awful, and probably the worst of my life. On my flight from Munich to Cairo, three weeks ago, Lufthansa left my bag in Munich despite the fact that I had an 8 hour layover - which you'd think would be more than enough to put a bag on a plane. They were very quick about delivering my bag once it arrived, but that previous experience with Lufthansa just served to bring down my opinion of the entire airline. Honesty, I had been told by friends that Lufthansa was a pretty good airline, that didn't show at all. There's a pretty big chance I'll never willingly fly Lufthansa again if there's even a remotely comparable option (which there almost always is)."
Pros: "The movie selection was great"
Cons: "Although my wife and I booked our tickets together, United refused to put our seats together. Instead, we had to bargain with other passengers in order to get seats together. This has been a consistent problem when flying United"
Pros: "The flight attendant was excellent. Much better than most of your other ones."
Pros: "Very nice staff! Friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "Boarding could have been smoother."
