Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I missed somehow the distribution of headsets, and I never got one (after asking for one). (Un-)fortunaltely there was no movie I really wanted to watch, or classical music for my taste (recitals, chamber music). Anyway, this is not a major problem, just a tiny glitch. The random boarding went surprisingly well, although I'd prefer the more structured version. Until there is bread, butter and cheese, I am fine with the bland food."
Pros: "Awesome. Very comfortable even in economy seats. Great entertainment"
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice and efficient"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines (both of which I traveled on as part of this trip)."
Cons: "I would highly recommend both Lufthansa and Austrian adjust their entertainment systems. They seem not to weight much the top films with, say 75% Rotten Tomatoes reviews or higher. Even if there were fewer options for cost reasons, I would think they'd still have more watcher enjoyment. Rather than pad the list with the likes of Boss Baby or Going out in Style or even a mediocre 60% offering in the Fast and Furious franchise. Wonderful crew, though, can't say enough about how polite and attentive they are."
Pros: "Good food, considerate cabin crew, good entertainment. For a long flight it was as good as you can expect."
Cons: "Seats are cramped, at the mercy of people in front and behind you in terms of comfort."
Pros: "Flight from Budapest to Munich was slightly delayed and I had a tight connection time to begin with. The effort the Lufthansa staff made to get me to me connection was heroic."
Pros: "They fed us eventually. We landed safely. Crew wasn't rude."
Cons: "I am only 158cm tall (5 feet 2 inches) and I had no leg room! My knees hit the seat in front of me. The seats were also so narrow that you could not change position at all, so it was very uncomfortable for a 8.5 hour flight. And I weigh less than 45 kg (100lbs). I can't imagine how anyone bigger than me felt. My seat was toward the back of the plane, and it took the crew over an hour to reach us once they started the drink and food carts. One time my row got entirely skipped for the drink cart, even though we were awake. This was a problem because they didn't come by for another 5.5 hours with more water/drinks, and they did not give us water bottles for that time period like Delta does. The food wasn't tasty, but it was eatable. The movie options were great, but that was all I could do on the screen because half of mine did not respond to touch, which meant no games and I could only select movies on the left half of my screen. Weird."
Cons: "Space and overall comfort of economy class"
Pros: "Decent selection of movies."
Cons: "cause it was a sauna. Temperature of the airplane was waaay to hot. Individual seats didn't have control of any vents. I had to get up and walk to bathroom area just to cool off."
Pros: "On time. Friendly helpful crew. Comfortable seats. Free wine with meals."
Pros: "Smiles from the male and female stewards. Being gracious to customers and treating them with respect....keeping us from getting bored"
Cons: "the Airbus was much more crowded than the Boeing (777) we flew over on and run by United. When food/trash was being passed, it was tough for passengers coming from the rest room to get back to their seat."
Pros: "Crew was very professional, friendly and helpfull. Fantastic entertainment selection. It was a pleasure."
Cons: "The seat space a bit tight in economy."
Pros: "The overall experience was great."
Pros: "Ease of boarding. Plenty of luggage space. Friendly and courteous crew"
Cons: "Last snack of ham and cheese was aweful"
Pros: "The person sitting next to me was congenial. We had a lot in common and enjoyed good conversation between movies. I also got to see two movies I misse in the theater. The trip passed quickly and enjoyably."
Cons: "There is not enough leg room on any flights for taller passengers. On long flights, more than four hours, there should be enough space for short walks around the plane."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and the flight was pleasant.The schedule was very convenient"
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 people, the service, the seats, the timeliness... (I did not fly from Washington to Munich on Lufthansa; I flew back on Lufthansa.)"
Cons: "Nothing. They were great."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Exceptional! The new plane was excellent. Like the downstairs toilet arrangement. Food was the best ever for overseas flight. Entertainment center was also excellent."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Terrible film choice"
Pros: "The crew was so pleasant, the seats reclined extremely comfortably, the TV and movie selection was great, the food service was prompt and I never felt like I was bugging them if you asked for something extra (not that you needed to ask cause they made frequent multiple trips down the aisles)"
Pros: "Seats were really good despite the fact that it is economy class. Food was very good، and entertainment was a blast، watched 4 movies during the flight. The crew members were really polite and helpful. Lufthansa will be a choice for me for any further travels."
Cons: "My trip from Washington to Amsterdam wasn't pleasant at all، because it was operated by United Airlines، which I do not recommend or even try again."
Pros: "crew interest and flight amenities; excellent meals"
Cons: "not applicable"
Pros: "Much more space in economy than United. Their entertainment system is high quality, made the flight enjoyable and fast."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "seats are a bit crammed on the plane in Economy"
Pros: "I called Lufthansa customer service on 8/10/16 the day before our flight because I wasn't feeling well and was concerned that I might feel worse the next day and have to cancel our flight. The lovely Customer Service rep was so sweet and concerned about my health, answered all my questions about what to do if I needed to cancel, and told me to call back anytime for more help. Also the flight attendants remembered my food allergies and were very attentive on the flights."
Pros: "comfortable seats pleasant flight attendants"
Cons: "Without having any real complains I felt the crew could of been more attentive and welcoming."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient. Food was not bad."
Cons: "Missed this flight"
Pros: "Overall, great flight. Great service, food was excellent, flight attendants were very competent and very polite."
Cons: "Liked everything."
Cons: "Needed a vegetarian option with each meal"
Pros: "Food is excellent as always,could offer a little more alcoholic beverages."
Cons: "Second baggage charges"
Pros: "I've just started using Lufthansa because I've been happy with all aspects of the trip -- on-time departure, pleasure staff onboard, and good food."
Cons: "Wish I had more time to shop Duty Free/Munich."
Pros: "Good was great. Had a decent amount of overhead bin space, so, unlike with domestic flights, I didn't have to fight for bin space, or stuff my wheel-less carry-on under my seat because people with bags that should be checked brought 3 carry-on bags and were taking bin space above other people's seats. Crew came by frequently to offer drinks and snacks which was much appreciated."
Cons: "Crew seemed overwhelmed and frequently forgot to ask me if I needed anything, despite asking my two seat mates. Headphones on board were dinky and my pair didn't work well. Had to sit in front of a passenger who was constantly hacking very wet-sounding coughs, full of phlegm and not covering her mouth. No one asked her to use a napkin or came by to offer water or suggest she cover her mouth when coughing."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The layover time was too short and for the second time I barely made it to my connecting flight but my luggage didn't. That is very annoying."
Pros: "female attendants were nice boarding was efficient Munich airport was unbelievably clean and well organized movie selection was good"
Cons: "the male flight attendant on the Munich to Washington DC leg was very short with people food was just average definitely not enough leg room in coach"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable. Probably fine for someone of average height, but no way to adjust the headrest for someone shorter."
Cons: "On our return flight from Munich to IAD the airline apparently switched the plane hours before departure. We did not receive notice of this and when we went to board we received new boarding passes. I was traveling with someone and so this reassignment meant not only that we were separated by that we were moved from an Aisle and a window seat together to both of us in middle seats. I understand that this change was out of ground crew control and so we waited to speak with agents about seeing if we could be seated together. While we waited patiently and were told that the only two seats together were both middle seats, the women who were waiting behind us and who were in the same situation as us (but much nor agitated and loud about the complaint) received upgrades to economy plus and were placed in an aisle seat. We were very disappointed with how this was handled and both of us being tall were very uncomfortable on the long flight."
Pros: "Got to try the new premium economy - which was fantastic. Loved the foot rest, added space, and comfortable seats. The crew was wonderful and it made an 8 hour flight go by quickly."
Cons: "There was a last minute plane change, with resulted in a lot of confusion and unhappiness as we boarded. For those of us who checked in at least a day in advance, the loss of a window or aisle seat was troubling. Even more frustrating were the parents who requested a bassinet seat, were confirmed for that seat at check-in prior to arriving in Munich, and then being told that there were no more bassinet seats. Also, only one row was opened to scan your ticket and board - which made the process very slow and frustrating."
Pros: "- Polite, professional, flexible service by crew - No delays - Quick check in - Free of charge alcohol - Free coffee & newspaper at Munich Airport (Lufthansa)"
Cons: "- Entertainment touchscreen is crappy. Far from averege. Outdated. - Elbow room in the seat is tight even for an averge person"
Pros: "Great crew that was very attentive and good entertainment options. The flight was on time even though we left a little bit late waiting for passengers coming from a transfer flight"
Pros: "loved the plane, comfort and leg space, blankets, all very good dinner was very tasty, decent wine, lovely cognac after dinner very nice and efficient staff"
Cons: "the second meal/snack was inedible - some sort of pretzel roll with undetermined filing, horrible! please go back to a ham and cheese and a roll of the past. This is the second flight on Lufthansa that i experienced some weird pizza/pretzel roll thing the entertainment system crashed a few times, had to be restarted and still did not work for all"
Cons: "One flight attendant just seemed grumpy as she slammed down my tonic water plopping some out of the can. And that was in the first hour or so - thus - it was not just the end of a hard flight."
Pros: "Upgraded to business!"
Cons: "Ran out of choice on menue. The shrimp!"
Pros: "In flight entertainment had great options"
Cons: "Lufthansa HAS to improve its boarding process. There is no reason for people at the front of the plan and back of the plane to board at the same time, it makes everyone stand up in a silly line for 30 minute, when everyone could do their own standing only when needed. Also the enforcement of the baggage policies was so uneven that I almost thought Lufthansa might actually be discriminating against Americans. Checking in, we were told thst I couldn't have a small roller bag in addition to my small backpack and that I would need to PAY for checking the small roller bag. I pushed back with the agent and ultimately he decided to check the roller bag, to then see the number of people with small roller. Bags and purses made me really mad!!! Also agree with the reviewer who said thst Lufthansa should give. More time to select seats than the last 24 hours,"
Cons: "Free food service."
Cons: "Canceled flight."
Cons: "the pizza I had to pay for was cold, soggy, and dreadfully tasteless"
Cons: "Didn't even know there was a ticket of this type. It was a good price, but when I went to check in on the return flight I was charged ~ $95 for a luggage item. Not a bad trick. On the other hand, not very nice either. They also didn't allow to take the guitar on-board due to a short & full flight saying the above part was too small. When I got on however, there was clearly room there. It could have been human error, but still disappointing nonetheless. They said there would be no track so it should safe, which it was, but it was left out in the rain for a minute or two so the soft case was somewhat wet. I don't think any permanent damage occurred."
Pros: "We got there on time. Pretty average flight."
Cons: "No meal is served on an international flight. Not even a snack of pretzels etc. I found it a little offensive to not have a complimentary snack or meal for a nighttime international flight."
Cons: "Very expensive options for food. Poor entertainment choices. Make you pay for everything."
Pros: "Route great and faster than going through London."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic with everyone boarding at once and not by row."
Pros: "the plane waited for late connecting flights (including mine)"
Pros: "Iceland air. Everything about the airline, the people the food, the equipment. If every airline had their ethic, the world would be a better place..."
Cons: "Flight was delayed AFTER we boarded and were taxi-ing the runway. We had to deboard and wait 3 hours until the plane was ready. It really interrupted my travel schedule once I landed in Washington DC. The airline didn't even offer us food vouchers or anything while we waited."
Pros: "The flight was fast and relatively comfortable."
Cons: "We left quite late. I believe it was to wait for TSA screening conducted on passengers with connecting flights."
Cons: "I've been on 4 flights through Kevlavik this year, 4 last year. Husband flew separately this year, also 4 flights. ALL except one flight was delayed by at least 30 minutes in Reykjavik. That's ridiculous!! Considering that Icelandair charges nearly as much for their transatlantic flights as other airlines such as KLM or Delta, I'm beginning to wonder why I should return!"
Pros: "Entertainment was fine and map of where you are"
Cons: "Boarding was 20 minutes late with no announcement No free food service for a long flight"
Cons: "This was the worst flight ever. Firstly, we were unnecessarily delayed because a flight before us was delayed and the people had crowded our gate. Secondly, my entertainment system didn't work and I was not given any blanket, pillow, or bottle of water. Thirdly, there were no snacks provided. Also the staff was not communicative and did not tell us what was going on. It was terrible."
Cons: "The waiting area in the Reykjavik airport seems to be the main hallway between numerous gates. There is not enough sitting area for passengers waiting for connections, and there was at least one other flight departing from a nearby gate at the same time as ours. This meant many folks had to stand or sit on the floor while waiting for their connection. We could not hear the boarding announcements at all, and it seemed the boarding agents just started letting on the people who were closest to the gate, instead of boarding from the rear of the plane first."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Fairly efficient check in and boarding"
Cons: "Food is not good cramped on airplane- true of all airplanes"
Pros: "No frills but very efficient and nice staff"
Cons: "Too many old movies. Update please!"
Pros: "As promised, flying through Iceland, even with only a 45 minute layover, was very easy and plenty of time to catch our next flight."
Cons: "Lots of delays boarding bus for the plane and then too much time sitting on the tarmac. The terminal needs places to sit."
Pros: "Flight times and short lay over"
Cons: "Some windows do not close. We could not sleep with bright light coming from window. Not too many options on what to drink for free. Only diet option was Pepsi."
Pros: "Crew were polite"
Cons: "The Rejkyavik airport is too small. People were sitting on the floor. No drinking fountains to refill a bottle. Boarding was a mess. Plane was late and then we waited even longer for a passenger. No meal offered. Under-seat space too small for a small bag. All ads, ads, ads, all the time."
Pros: "Pretty good legroom in the aircraft. Clean. Friendly staff. Enjoyed the video of the different places to explore in Iceland. Very informative. Fairly good selection of entertainment. The welcome bottled water was very nice."
Cons: "Airline won't check you in until about a couple of hours prior to flight even if there's huge line of passengers who to got there early hoping to check in early. Instead they end up standing in line for an hour or so. Boarding process in Reykjavik was inefficient. Very crowded at the gate with everybody standing up in line as all 3 gates are boarding all at the same time. Then after the so called "boarding", passengers were asked to wait in a waiting area for another 15 mins before actually boarding the aircraft. At that point passengers can just board aircraft at no particular order. Defeated the whole purpose of the initial boarding by sections (Saga, Economy Comfort and Economy)."
Cons: "Small seats, connecting and normal flight were delayed. Food and drinks were expensive. Uncomfortable seating for a long duration flight (6 hrs)"
Pros: "Really dislike boarding via steps on tarmac and cramming everyone on shuttle bus to the aircraft."
Cons: "Having to pay for food."
Pros: "The seats and legroom seemed larger than other planes. It was very clean and the staff is great."
Cons: "Both times on this trip that we boarded planes in Reykjavik, it was chaotic. Almost no information was given out. Boarding yesterday was late and totally unexplained. There is very little in the way of places to sit while waiting for flights - - bad airport design. Yesterday's fight was delayed more than an hour because they could not load the baggage quickly. Icelandair 757 seats are just plain uncomfortable, and we are normal size people. I will not fly them again or go there again unless I have no other choice."
Pros: "Superb employees from the moment of contact on the phone."
Cons: "Not enough choices of music or movies. Poor quantity, quality, variety of food."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "unconcerned crew members only one cashier at the food counter in the airport long inefficient lines"
Pros: "They crew was very helpful and attentive."
Cons: "Plane was delayed which made me run to my connecting flight."
Pros: "Attentive stewardesses They made sure we were hydrated, .Lots to buy: Easter candies, creams, etc. Even though it was the day of thr terrorist attacks in Brussels and there were some delays because of security, the staff made us feel safe and comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't realize that I would need to pay for my food and drinks. However, the price was right, so I would travel with Iceland Air again."
Pros: "Best legroom I've seen in economy. Very ergonomic seats. Great movie selection. USB charging port. Food is for purchase but much better than the regular 'chicken or pasta' you get for free on other flights. Had only 25 min between flights on my way back with no issues (including my check-in luggage) with the transfer."
Cons: "Expect to pay for everything, except water. Will never fly them again. Refused to cancel flight until hours before even though the airport was closed. Messed up my vacation."
Pros: "I liked the coffee and the fact that the pilot seemed to know how to fly the plane very well."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that everyone seemed nice at the door then was snooty once the doors closed. The tv didn't work on the side I was on and the seats were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "I have flown into and out of Reykjavik at least 6 six times in 2015 and the boarding process is always chaos with other flights boarding in very close proximity. There are times when I and other people are not sure which queue to be in."
Pros: "Roomy cabins and lots of entertainment selections helps for long flights."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not helpful in announcing connecting flights in Keflavik and there were no monitors or attendants right off the plane to ask which direction you needed to go to connect. I ended up going down to baggage claim, back through security and back up to the same place where I was. Good thing it was a small airport and there were no lines or I would have missed my flight to US."
Pros: "I Enjoyed the flight and loved the Northern Lights on the plane; however it would of been nice to get a meal or at least a snack."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, I've flown quite a bit and I've found Icelandair to have the friendliest crew around."
Cons: "Flew economy/cheap seats while I was upgraded on the flight to Iceland it didn't happen on the way stateside, I'm not complaining about that but the economy seats are extremely narrow and the cushions feel like half the padding in economy comfort class. I'm 6'2" weigh 215 lbs and by the time the flight ended I was extremely stiff and my legs were half asleep due to the confined space. If you fly fly economy comfort seats are wider, better padded and you board earlier."
Cons: "The screen worked but the headphones did not."
Cons: "They did not provide any free food or snacks on a 6.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Very friendly service people- starting at the check in to the people on board. Very short layover, but manageable without any stress. Perfectly timed. Good Entertaining system. Two luggages free of charge are allowed."
Cons: "No food included."
Pros: "The plane was new looking and clean. Price of ticket was cheapest around. Food I had to purchase was good tasting."
Cons: "* Lack of announcements as to what was happening: ticketing, ticket lines, boarding, meals, etc. Rude counter and gate employees. Poor coordination and crowd control/line control. * Cramped seating...though the seats looked brand-new. * Small monitors with limited selection compared to other airlines. * Only food or drink included in ticket was a small bottle of water. All else, pay up. This looks like an airline that is trying to enter market and gain share by offering low prices but is not up to the challenge of giving adequate service, particularly at ticketing, check-in and at gate when they succeed in luring passengers in with the low price. I am not likely to fly Icelandair again unless I am desperate for low-priced ticket, which is not often the case, thank goodness. Try harder Icelandair and maybe you will make it. Work on the ground-based service because it is lacking."
Pros: "Crew were great, movie/TV selection was small but pretty good, plane itself was relatively new and fine. Had a traditional Icelandic Christmas beverage as one of the choices, and played Icelandic Christmas songs during boarding and arrival!"
Cons: "Didn't have blankets for every passenger this time - had to go find one."
Pros: "enjoyed a forced 24 hr stay in Iceland. Good accommodations, food etc."
Cons: "didn't like lack of communication on Munich flight that connection to Seattle will be missed"
Pros: "This airline is one of the best."
Pros: "service, space, price"
Cons: "Food, bring your own"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and it was comfortable for the shortflight."
Cons: "I was ignored like i was invisible, did not even get Water or a hello I did bring my own Food."
Pros: "Comfortable, surprising warm cabins with plenty of carry-on storage space and the absolute best personal entertainment system I'd even used on an aircraft. Efficient and friendly crew. Interesting selection of food available for purchase. Look for the "aurora" lights above the luggage lockers during low-light times of the flights."
Cons: "Short layover in Reykjavik on the outbound flight. Good duty free shopping made up for it on the return, however."
Pros: "great flight. great staff."
Cons: "Left Washington two hours late. Left London on return 45 minutes late."
Pros: "The crew members were pleasant an helpful."
Cons: "The seats are very hard so I sat on the pillow provided and put something behind my back."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and polite."
Cons: "- The boarding at Heathrow gate B44 was horrendous. This is my third experience at the B gates, all terrible! The long wait to board coupled with the lack of sufficient seats for people needing assistance, topped off by cold air from the AC blasting you right in the face. - The plane at boarding time was an oven! Someone didn't want to or forgot to turn the AC on. It tool at least over an hour to make it comfortable. - The entertainment choices are very limited and the screens don't work well."
Pros: "On time, great entertainment, friendly crew, good food, complementary ice cream:)"
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room and I am regular woman passenger. It was really uncomfortable for the 2 tall young men to my left and right."
Pros: "I liked that they had a veggie option for food for dinner service."
Cons: "I didn't like the British Airways terminal at Heathrow - everything was automated. There was no human interaction and the ground staff was scarce therefore it was difficult to ask any questions."
Cons: "Most passengers had to pay for any food even water. No plugs at the seats."
Pros: "Quiet flight lots or spare seats - good price. Food pretty good"
Cons: "Viewing sets stowed in front of rows old and not easy to move"
Pros: "How short the flight was and the fact that I had an empty seat next to me."
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The crew were exceptionally nicer ery"
Cons: "Everything was pleasant"
Pros: "Great service on plane"
Cons: "A lot of stress: our 1st leg IAD to Dublin was cancelled, than we got 2 set of tickets rebooked. On the way back there was a stress since we had a "problem with the ticket" Apparently the Aer Lingus made all those mistakes. In London I was told to go to the end of line 2 times, the BA employee was olaying really weird games. Pretty annoying."
Pros: "The flight left relatively on time and arrived only ten minutes late. The crew were as friendly as they were totally unaccommodating."
Cons: "In coach, every refreshment costs money, even non-alcoholic beverages, yet all four of my (valid and working before and after) cards were declined, and like all airlines nowadays, they refuse cash. The flight attendant was totally unsurprised, and mentioned they'd been "working on fixing that for a while." Every other airline I've flown, when they can't process your card, they accept it as their issue and just give you the beverage. BA were quite happy to leave me sitting thirsty without even a water for the two hour flight, with nary a apology for their technical issue. A rather basic plane, without entertainment, nor internet."
Pros: "The flight was fine..."
Cons: "But Dulles Airport needs to control the level of toxicity experienced when certain entitled passengers think they have to pack the tarmac shuttle under NO PARTICULAR AUTHORITY, shouting "MOVE BACK [YOU] PEOPLE" into the closest ear. There should be someone other than the driver on those shuttles monitoring people, since they obviously need a babysitter."
Pros: "British Airways makes you pay extra to pick your seat The alternative is to take the luck of the draw and hope you don't get the middle on the center aisle Kind of annoying"
Pros: "Free drinks!"
Cons: "No new movies!~"
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight and experience was horrible"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "The seat rows are too close together. When the woman in front of me reclined her seat she was basically in my lap- not how I wanted to spend 7 hours. I finally had to put my knees against her seat to keep her from reclining. It took a lot of effort to cross/uncross my legs in the limited space. I'm only 5'4" 118lbs - I can't imagine how anyone bigger than me feels when they have to fly in the same situation."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Cons: "person in seat reclined and their seat hit my knees and was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew was okay. Boarding was okay."
Cons: "Food was not great. Snack was a candy bar? No other options in back of the plane. Entertainment cut out and the system was difficult to operate and movie variety was not wonderful."
Cons: "I bought my ticket through you and thanks to you my name was spelled wrong and I could not get my ticket. We called the company for hours but no one would help us. I had to buy a ticket that was double what I bought from you. I demand that I get a refund in full of $1300 and another $2700 to cover the ticket that I had to buy last minute. Email me at email@example.com about how we can go about doing this."
Pros: "We flew on an enormous double-decker Airbus that was equipped with an entertainment system that offered dozens of movies, TV shows, and other entertainment to keep the entire family occupied for the length of the flight. We could also charge our phones and other electronic devices from our seats. The flight attendants were all very nice and the food was fine. The distance between the rows in coach was comfortable, even for a 6' tall person. It was a great flight!"
Cons: "One of our bags did not make the connecting flight from Rome but it was delivered to our house the next day, so in the end it was fine!"
Pros: "Archibald Elba"
Pros: "The BA crew were great."
Cons: "I paid $ 2,100 for a IAD-LHR-NCE return, on short notice, in high season which I think is very expensive; a family emergency left me with no choice other than a cheaper Turkish Airlines alternative through Isranbul which, given recent events, I thought to be unwise. My main complaint is with economy seating which I find very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight crew were all very courteous and helpful throughout the entire flight. They made the entire trip as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The plane was parked not at the terminal, but far away. The one hour delay occurs because of 300 passenger transportation from and to the plane. This delay could be avoided if terminal services were more responsible. I always thought that the United provides the worst food in economy class. It appeared that BA food is even worse. The entertainment software was obsolete and delivered an image of a very bad quality."
Cons: "The food expired the day we were on the flight- I ate the chicken salad sandwich and I was sick on the flight and the rest of the evening home. My sister who are the same sandwich was sick also."
Pros: "The crew was excellent!"
Cons: "The arrangements by Kayak did not allow me to make my connections on time. I missed the connection from Heathrow to Manchester. And only made the connection from Manchester to Heathrow because I was escorted in a wheelchair."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was smooth, and the staff was friendly."
Cons: "Too little leg room and too little incline in Economy seats. Food mediocre."
Cons: "My flight was delayed at the last minute and had to sit in the Heathrow Airport for 4-5 hours and remain seated another 7-8 hours once finally boarding at another gate opposite other end of airport. Upon arrival to Dulles International and clearing customs/immigrations and finally making it out to claim my baggage my luggage was deemed lost and never made the flight to Dulles. To this day, I still do not have my luggage with my belongings containing Rx, clothing, shoes, souvineers, etc. Needless to say, I am very upset let alone extremely inconvienced."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew were good"
Cons: "We booked our flight three months ago and my friend was bumped from the flight since they overbooked. They were still selling tickets up until the flight. They didn't ask for volunteers but somehow picked her. When I asked if I could stay with her, I was told that I would have to buy a new ticket for the other flight. Also they were very rude while explaining it. Not impressed. Also the flight was delayed because they didn't start boarding on time and then we sat on the runway for about 30 min."
Pros: "Comfort, excellent customer service and care. Everyone smiled way to goo"
Pros: "Good movie selection, food tasted alright."
Cons: "My entertainment screen was malfunctioning, the crew was somewhat robotic and not very accomodating, and the large snack was served right before landing--so we had to wolf down the food and it made me feel sick to my stomach."
Pros: "The crew was great, food was very good, the entertainment system was awesome"
Pros: "One of the crew members, a flight attendant, was really a blessing in the way she cared for the passengers and had such a sunny and sweet smile and personality toward everyone she served. Was really thankful she was on our flight."
Pros: "Excellent staff; great meal; nice variety of entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seating was comfortable."
Cons: "For a large part of the flight the in-seat entertainment didn't work, making for a poor experience for the first half of the flight. The crew was eventually able to get the entertainment working again so kudos to them for that."
Pros: "Everything was fine. The crew was helpful and friendly."
Pros: "VERY friendly crew!! All around pleasent flight! Keep it up :)"
Pros: "Everything was very organized and very fish and it was a very enjoyable trip."
Pros: "The flight got us home"
Cons: "American Airlines, which ran the flight as B.A.'s partner, didn't give any reason for the on-ground delay, and acted as if we all should have expected to be an hour and a half late leaving the terminal. They offered very little information and didn't really care that we were so late leaving."
Pros: "Overall a good trip!"
Cons: "Almost broke my finger trying to change the menu on the screen. The snack coming back toward Philadelphia, is really not very good. One should have a choice of yogurt or breakfast bar. The flatbread with weird combination of cheese, peppers etc after flying for 8 hours is just not good for any stomach."
Pros: "I took an earlier flight from Washington Dulles and it was very cramped. This Air Bus was much more comfortable. The seat was softer, and wider."
Cons: "However, the rude person in front of me put his seat all the way back from the beginning of the flight and it was VERY tight. I was hoping he would out it back up a little, but to no avail. I don't think the seat needed to be back so far. Maybe it should be mentioned in the videos we see at the beginning of the flight?"
Pros: "Flight was on time , the service was excellent . I enjoyed the flight ."
Pros: "Professional crew."
Cons: "Tight seating. Inability to choose seats prior to check-in without paying."
Pros: "It was a typical short duration flight"
Cons: "I think it is outrageous to charge for early seat selection. We made our flight arrangements months in advance and I prefer to select my seats at the time of booking. We waited until check-in to make seat selections as a result. I can understand if you are upgrading your seats but for general booking that simply seems dumb. I also had a run-in with the ticket agent about my ski equipment. They wanted to charge me for 2 bags for my ski bag and boot bag. I persisted and they granted the accommodation. Every airline that I have flown to Europe in the past over the last 12 years have considered the 2 bags as 1 since they are connected and combined weighed less than 50 lbs. The ticket agent was polite, but I do not feel I should have had to lobby to get what is customary."
Pros: "The food was good for an airline, the movie selection was excellent and the second floor of the new airbus was great!"
Cons: "There was a group of 15-20 people flying to DC for a conference. The group congregated in all aisles during the entire flight. They were drinking to excess (and I thought I liked to drink on planes) and very loud. Instead of ever asking them to take their seat or quiet down, the airline staff kept their head down and avoided them. One even stepped in and stayed in front of a bulkhead passenger's TV. When asked to move he shrugged, gave a half drunk grin and went back to his conversation. It was very poor manners from the passengers but also a complete lack of concern by BA staff."
Pros: "Flight was not over crowded, allowing for proper social distancing! That is MUCH appreciated. Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The couple in front of me got in a physical altercation as well as the couple seated behind me. Both situations caused much discomfort and could have been defused faster by flight crew"
Pros: "Arrived safely."
Cons: "Bumped from business to coach and given a lousy $300 voucher."
Pros: "Arrived alive, didn’t sleep in the Charlotte airport like last flight. didn’t lose a bag....didn’t check one, learned that lesson before"
Cons: "WiFi did’t work. Boarding the end of the terminal/gate was a mess. Crew was late, so flight was late. Packed in like sardines....normal American Airlines."
Cons: "Paid for First Class so I could sleep on this red-eye. Wasted my money. Seat was uncomfortable, legroom in my bulkhead seat was horrible. I can sleep anywhere...make that ALMOST anywhere, now."
Pros: "Crew good seat was better than than the last. Food really good"
Cons: "Shorter fly time"
Cons: "There was a three hour delay for missing crew."
Pros: "Plane was nice and comfortable, enjoyed blanket and pillow. Cabin soft drink service was good."
Cons: "Ok movie selection, more less R rated movies to choose from would be nice. Served snack literally 20 minutes before we landed, kinda silly."
Pros: "Great crew! Comfortable seats!"
Cons: "Caught an earlier flight and the entire team made the process seamless."
Pros: "NO NO"
Pros: "It’s not like it used to be. U S based airlines lag behind their European and Asian counterparts"
Cons: "There’s always room for improvement. Too much to list here"
Pros: "The check-in was pleasant. I was treated politely, the staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "People at the gate while boarding were quite rude."
Cons: "The flight was booked. A lot of families were separated. It included family with the small children. Passengers were running around asking to change the seats. The entertainment system was very slow. The sound made cracking noises. The flight was over two hours late. In addition, we had to wait for our luggage over 40'. The luggage was wet."
Pros: "many movies"
Pros: "The food and the snack was pretty good"
Cons: "I paid $20 for the 24 hours of Wi-Fi and it never worked On either flight. The guy sitting in the seat behind me kept putting his knees into the back of the seat to prevent me from reclining so that his girlfriend could sleep with her head in his lap, so I could not recline in sleep on the long flight from Munich to Philadelphia. I don't have any of these issues when I fly on United. If you want me to fly on American more than I suggest you fixed them."
Cons: "The flight delayed several times, and the gate was changed. The plane is very old and no service at all (not even water during the 2 hours flight)!"
Cons: "in the airport, the gate area dirty!, bathrooms dirty, no place to charge phone. The walk to the airplane, getting aboard the plane after the gate and flight changed and delayed. Being told it was weather related on the plane and being told it was MAINTENANCE by customer service. The plane was very crowded, the flight attendants never smiled. WHen i told the attendant i was being "rained" on he said...i know its happening everywhere..... he said there was nothing he could do but get me paper towels...they never came. I was very annoyed getting off the plane walking back and forth....it was aweful. and my flight before this was no better i am VERY TURNED OFF BY AMERICAN AIRLINES RIGHT NOW."
Pros: "The crew were polite, accommodating and understanding"
Cons: "The gate was changed 1hr prior to boarding despite the arriving plane having landed 3hrs prior. So with stroller and infant in toe, I had to run to change terminals/buildings. There was no assistance or prior warning regarding this from the check in staff and I made it all the way to the original terminal and gate before having to turn around. The desk staff at the gate was asked about early boarding for infants and said it would be okay but didn’t give clear instructions on boarding so I sat down and they began boarding each group 20 minutes later and did not give priority to mother’s with infants. The stroller which I brought to the gate was then tagged incorrectly with a white tag instead of a pink tag. I was later told by he crew that it meant it would go directly to baggage claim instead of being brought to the door. According to the crew, all staff know to tag with a pink tag. At every step there was blatant display of inconsideration that made an already difficulty journey, that much more challenging."
Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Pros: "The fact we arrived safely"
Cons: "Long time to claim baggage, three hours delay, uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "2 hour late departure. could not get there story strait on why the delay, finally they went with weather delay. steward reminded me of a bunch of people unhappy with there jobs. need to work on customer service"
Cons: "American Airlines DISCRIMINATES especially against the elderly! The airlines took my family of 6 off the flight that I booked 6 months in advance, and I had no flight out of Munich, Germany. I do not know why. I called and had them put us back on the flight. I paid extra for seats so that we could all sit together. The seats were given to others and my family could not sit together. The American Airlines employees were not helpful at all! The agent, Rowna, lied to us that we would be sitting together. They will not reimburse me for paying extra for seats that I did not get. The porter that pushed my mother in the wheelchair was more helpful than any employee."
Pros: "It was on time, crew members were great."
Cons: "My video screen watching a movie froze the last couple of hours. Let the attendants know, nothing ever happened and reminded them a few times over the 2 hr period."
Pros: "I liked arriving safely, although we were an hour and a half late"
Cons: "American switched pilots last minute, so all passengers sat waiting in our cramped seats for about 15 minutes while pilots got situated in the cockpit. Then it was discovered a preflight mechanical check hadn't been done. So we all sat for another HOUR waiting for the mechanics to arrive and do their work. The flight attendants were unpleasant and rude."
Pros: "great flight! THank You"
Pros: "The fact that we got home without our luggage missing"
Cons: "Flights were operated by American Airlines. The touch screens on the flights between Munich to Philadelphia. Apparently this was a known issue so I have no idea why the company didn't care to fix it. The food served was awful and tasteless. Not to mention that webjet once again made errors with out booking which the AA ground staff were nice enough to fix."
Pros: "I appreciated the interactive screen on the backseat, which provided me entertainment watching Doctor Who and playing Angry Birds. I also liked that the power outlet to charge my phone was more accessible on the backseat instead of below my seat, which is normally where I find it."
Cons: "I did not appreciate that there was a device mounted below 2 of the 3 backseats in my row. Those devices cut into at least a few inches of valuable room to store a carry-on bag. At worst, I've seen 1 seat have such a device, so it was quite disappointing to see 2 seats with them, including mine."
Cons: "Although I should now be at my final destination, I still have 11 hrs of travel to go. My flights were changed three times. The first cancelation caused me to buy new tickets at a higher price I had originally purchased them at. We were redirected from Kayak to Vayamo and they have no sense of customer service. Horrible"
Pros: "All of the flight was OK - nothing special -"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants did not like her job at all - like a robot - no smiles, frustrated and bored"
Pros: "I had a relaxing trip everything went smooth and the crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "the only thing I did not like is the food choice because it seems like every airlines have the same to choices no big deal"
Pros: "Plane was comfy and food was good"
Cons: "Boarding in Munich was a nightmare. There was no place to line up and there was only one person checking tickets which resulted in 100s of people trying to push through at same time. After that we had to cram on buses and wait on tarmack for 30mins till plane was ready and then everyone rushed on the plane."
Cons: "This was actually an American Airline flight with other carrier names. I hate how AA tries to get passengers to pay more for seating. Even less than 24 hours before the flight they were trying to trick me into selecting a less desirable seat or pay an additional $93 per seat. It was only because we got to the airport early did better seats mysteriously become available. Even after selecting seats they still tried to get us to pay for "better" seating."
Cons: "Rude crew, no bathroom useage for entire flight and staff would not help handicap with luggage."
Pros: "The smoothness of the ride"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed then we sat on plane for an hour before take off. Then movies i wanted to watch wouldnt work and crew was annoyed and not helpful. Food was ok... mashed potatoes would have been better as rice with chicken."
Pros: "When we printed out our boarding passes the two seats that we bought were not listed. The agent at the boarding gate was awesome and got us two seats together. The flight was smooth and the flight crew was very good."
Cons: "The time allotted between flights was too short."
Pros: "Announcements and directions on landing in Philadelphia were very complete and helpful. Crew came around multiple times offering drinks."
Cons: "Baggage unloading took 40 minutes to begin. Caused jam up behind other arriving flights at customs and everyone in big rush to catch connecting flights. Entertainment good but touchscreen was not responsive and frustrating to operate. Long walk to new terminal for connecting flight even though flight was listed as the same flight number for both legs."
Pros: "The spaciousness of the seating on AA is tops bar none"
Cons: "The cookies and it was cold. Jesse"
Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."
Pros: "Boarding was simple"
Cons: "For my whole three hour flight a child kicked my chair, i asked the mother politely if she could get her to stop. the woman didn't even apologize and the kicking continued for three hours."
Pros: "The flight service was consistently adequate and the attendants made sure to provide many opportunities to stay well hydrated"
Cons: "There was a screaming child that made the trip almost intolerable. No fault of American, however, perhaps the attendants could have made some additional suggestions to the parent to help him quiet his child."
Pros: "Being able to see movies for free was a real plus since the flight from Australia to Wash.DC is so long."
Cons: "Everything OK."
Pros: "Had row all to myself--that's a rarity"
Cons: "1hr departure delay"
Pros: "Older aircraft, seat cushion was on its last legs regarding comfort as I sunk to the frame of the seat. No onboard entertainment on the headrest as compared with our outgoing flight."
Cons: "The seat discomfort and the lack of entertainment."
Pros: "Entertainment options were outstanding , 4 movies and 10 hour flight is quicker than quick."
Cons: "Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."
Cons: "Significantly late & rude, as usual."
Pros: "Clean, friendly staff, great baggage tracking. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."
Pros: "Getting off of that plane."
Cons: "I understand delays happen and are sometimes out of your control. However, customer service is something that you can, should, and must control. I witnessed a lack of self control of the American employees (including a Supervisor) and every point of my trip w/your customers. I was embarrassed for the American executive team."
Pros: "Much more legroom on this flight, even though it was a smaller aircraft."
Cons: "Gate agent seemed a bit overwhelmed. Helpful, but not overly friendly. In stark contrast to my earlier flight from Charlotte to Memphis, where the gentleman was extremely pleasant and cheerful."
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"
Pros: "Food and service"
Pros: "good entertainment system"
Cons: "they boarded zones 3, then 4, then 5.. utter chaos. When I asked a male flight attendant the premise for this he was rude and aggressive. My wife phoned CA to book a gluten free meal the day before. The process was so complex she gave up. 9 hours no food. I was reminded again why I hate this airline"
Cons: "Tight cabin on Regional aircraft."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. On time flight"
Cons: "Food is just so-so"
Cons: "No regard to passengers schedules I was supposed to be home 4 hrs ago. Still waiting for the flight home. Family informed me that the weather is great back home. So not an excuse!"
Pros: "I was not on this flight I flew raleigh to Toronto to Montreal to geneVa but I bet it was a great flight!"
Pros: "On time great crew"
Cons: "Food, no leg space."
Cons: "I had a window seat which had the new dimming glass rather than the pull-down shade. I kept the window at the darkest setting, and, even so, the window was so hot you could not hold your hand on it for more than a few seconds without it burning. The heat radiated so far out from the window that I needed to keep the air vent open totolerate it. Usually, when one sits in a window seat, they have the luxury of leaning against it with their pillow as they rest. The heat made this very uncomfortable, and for me, impossible. In fact, at a certain point, a stewardess came to the row ahead of me and excused herself with those passengers saying that she wanted to check the window of that row as the person sitting there was wondering is there was a malfunction in the window because it was burning hot. I spoke up and told the stewardess that the window was unbearably hot and to try to hold her hand on it. She responded, "Wow! That really IS the hot!" She said she'd check up front. She came back saying the pilot said it was because we are on the side of the plane facing the sun. We were on that side for 8 hours!! I find it hard to believe these windows weren't researched more thoroughly under all conditions, including the continual beating of the particular seasonal angle of the sun for long overseas flights! Please take this response seriously, as it truly was incredibly uncomfortable."
Cons: "Flight delays"
Pros: "Free beer, one flight attendant"
Cons: "Crew was rude and didn't care much"
Cons: "We were very unhappy that the flight was delayed by 35 minutes in Munich causing us to miss our connecting flight by 15 minutes… We only had an hour to get through customs and get to our next flight that should've been accounted for by kayak"
Cons: "The plane left over an hour late, despite the fact that the plane was at the gate hours before departure. This caused us to miss our connection to St. Louis. While they rerouted others on the flight, they did not reroute us because we didn't check any luggage! Their reasoning was we had a chance to make the connection. But they made us wait in a line for 10 minutes to be told that despite our requests to go to the gate. By then it was too late. We then had to fly stand by to Chicago and stand by again to get to St. Louis."
Pros: "The van that waited to quickly take us to customs and then to the gate to escort us to our connecting flight (which had been held for us) was incredibly welcome and helpful. I am grateful for that consideration and effort made on our behalf. The flight staff was excellent. Everything seemed to go very smoothly. I really liked the built in screens (& headphones) and entertainment programming made available to us."
Cons: "The food was tasty, but portions were a bit small, particularly in the main meal."
Pros: "I liked, that the staff was nice and friendly, I got my gluten-free food and there was enough entertainment (movies, movies, ...) to choose from, which made it a pleasant flight. Unfortunately, our flight from Munich to Toronto had a delay, so I couldn't make it to the connecting flight. Without having to ask or complain, Air Canada booked us on the next possible flight, which was the next morning, and gave us the boarding passes and a voucher for a Sheradon hotel close to Toronto airport, where I went by a free Sheradon Shuttle bus."
Cons: "I would have liked to be informed more than two times in 30minutes at the boarding area, about what was going on with the plane having to start later. It's not the waiting that is the bad thing in my eyes, it's the not knowing what is going on, also for passengers arriving after the first announcement. I could imagine people being a little more understanding, if they know what is going on, as well as your staff being less busy to answer questions, but instead being able to solve part of the problem."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Having to pay to have a bit of extra comfor while traveling with a 14 months old"
Pros: "The privacy of the person was honored"
Cons: "Having to stop. We were not told our luggage would not have to be transported through customs"
Pros: "Service was good and people were nice."
Cons: "Almost no room if someone puts their seat back, food was not good, made an emergency landing when passenger said he was fine and caused everyone to be delayed."
Pros: "About as good as a modern sold-out flight can get."
Cons: "Lufthansa crew was abrupt and demanding."
Pros: "The movie selection was very good."
Cons: "The seats were so close to together that whenever the person behind me moved, I got hit in the back. Anything that was dropped on the floor was hard to get since they were so close together which also made it hard to get in and out of the seats. The main meal was fine, but the second meal was mediocre."
Pros: "New plane with comfortable seats, good food, and decent entertainment selection"
Cons: "Not enough food for passengers on board. Flight attendants were visibly upset, rude, unable to handle the passenger load, uncommunicative when problems arose."
Pros: "The boarding staff and flight attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were so small it was impossible to get the seatbelt without disturbing the people on either side. I am not a large person and I still filled the entire seat. The food was not good either. They served what was supposed to be a warm chicken wrap but after two bites I set it aside as mystery food."
Pros: "The planes were as expected, nothing special.."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, then delayed further with no explanation. No one knew if our connecting flight had left yet, no help in Toronto's confusing airport. TSA was more helpful than the Air Canada staff. Seemed like everyone had gone home for the night"
Pros: "Very accommodating and friendly staff. Very attentive to our needs."
Cons: "The selection of entertainment onboard to pass the time (eg movies, TV shows, etc..). It could of been better."
Cons: "There was cold air blowing on our feet the entire flight."
Pros: "Overall, it was a smooth flight and the staff was helpful throughout this long flight."
Cons: "My flight from Munich to Toronto did not have the ability to recharge technology in my seat. It was a 9 hour flight, and this would have been helpful. The flight data would not display in my seat. This would have been nice to have the ability to track our progress. It was displayed i some of the monitors, however not all of them."
Pros: "Polite and friendly crew"
Cons: "Connection was a hectic with staff sending up and down to get our boarding passes. TSA had short lines but long wait and a lot of attitude."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful I was very glad that the Toronto boarding person recommended that i get on the flight as there were still empty seats -- there were no seats on the next flight that i had been switched to because my bag was on that one (supposedly)..."
Cons: "My bag was not on the next flight, so i had to get a hotel room for the nite, It was not on the 8/14/16 Sunday morning flight as stated their system; although the Dulles manager was very helpful, my bag was nowhere to be found. Someone drove to Dulles from Va Beach with my car keys -- i was called sunday nite that bag arrived.and would be fedex'd 2-day which put arrival at Wed 8/17/16. Still not here on 8/20/16. Sad and disappointed at how botched the return trip was."
Pros: "The helpdesk was helpful when I got a hold of someone. The compensation was decent."
Cons: "I bought my round trip ticket from DC to Paris via Toronto since March 2016. But the flight back from Toronto to DC was overbooked and I got bumped off the flight. The agents were severely understaffed and had no information about the situation. Also, when I finally got the flight back to DC, my luggage was lost."
Cons: "Customs was disorganized and we were sent to the back of the line twice. The people working there didn't know what they were doing. Then our flight was delayed 3 separate times, first 2 hours, then another hour, then another hour. The seats on the plane were made for children. Luckily it was only a 1 1/2 hour flight."
Pros: "Air Canada did put us up in a hotel for the night when they cancelled our flight."
Cons: "The airport was so crowded that we couldn't get a flight out of Munich to anywhere else."
Cons: "Terrible all around. About 10 total delays and one on flight delay totalling 7 hours. No information except lies was given the whole time."
Pros: "Wonderful service! Everyone on the plane was very helpful and polite. There was a lot of room in between seats. The bathrooms were very neat and clean. I ordered a healthy meal (of which I never have done this before) and it was very tasty. That was a nice option, to have something light and healthy. My husband had the regular option and also commented on how it was very good (for airplane food). Only thing he didn't like was the light lunch that was a heated up wrap. At that point, we were almost home and it didn't matter. Nice flight! We will be back!"
Cons: "Lost bag"
Cons: "Everything from customer service to flight."
Cons: "7 hour delay combined with the most rude airline staff I have ever met."
Cons: "Again, more delays."
Pros: "This flight left without us due to delayed arrival on Air Canada flight from Seoul to Toronto. The positive was that it was one Air Canada flight I didn't get on."
Cons: "Due to lack of available options to get to ANY DC area airport before the evening the day after we were supposed to arrive, I accepted going to Philadelphia. That flight was also delayed. From there I rented a car and got home at 3 a.m. instead of 9:45 p.m., about when we would have gotten home on the original flight. If we had waited for the next available flight to the DC area, it would have arrived some time after 2:48 p.m. the day after we were supposed to arrive. I know this because I was told this was the fastest route to DC--before the same Air Canada agent then told me that it was no longer available. A dreadful experience."
Pros: "Larger seats than Alaska Airlines, which is what I typically fly."
Cons: "They would have gotten a better rating if my luggage would have shown up. Instead, I was told to wait in a "holding pen" for my luggage to show up so I could clear customs. After waiting for 30 minutes, I went to the Air Canada desk and was immediately told my luggage was not in Toronto. They were easily able to verify it but didn't figure it was important enough to tell me although for most of the time, I was the only one waiting in the room. My luggage did arrive two days after I did."
Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Cons: "The departure postponed several times. The comfort in those parts of Toronto and Dulles airport which us Canada express is absent at all. There are no even seats enough for all passengers."
Pros: "My Flight was canceled without us getting any notification and causing major delays and headaches with NO offer for compensation to help e.g. with a $70 taxi we had to incur to get from DCA to IAD. Poor service"
Pros: "The crew got us out of Toronto very quickly"
Cons: "The incredibly small overhead bins"
Pros: "no entertainment or food. drink service got to back of the airplane about 5 minutes before beginning descent. Problems though were all before getting on the plane. Will not fly through Pearson again."
Cons: "After 12-hour flight from Tokyo, found flight to Dulles cancelled, with no adequate passenger assistance. Few staff to deal with issues and no familiarity with DC airports, IT support for the few staff available was poor. At re-booked flight gate, the area service desk unattended for an hour; finally found a helpful ground crew who said they are on break and got staff to service the desk, albeit grudgingly. Several flights delayed, in the horrible Gates F-84-99 area; confusion reigned supreme. Staff needs to understand that Dulles is way west of DC and BWI is way NE, so getting re-routed from Dulles to BWI is MAJOR change in ground transportation options and distances. Also need to update IT programming so staff can use it easily without long waits and calls for help. and some air conditioning in the F 84-90 gates area would be nice. Horrible situation--not enough seating, only service in whole area is one bagel shop."
Cons: "This plane was very late! I understand this happens a lot."
Pros: "Love the free coffee dispenser in the aiport! Staff very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Left a few min late"
Pros: "I usually fly United via Newark, but this entirely made me rethink my strategy! Great service, food, luggage delivered on time, even the pain of going through CA immigration was avoided by a smart detour of transit passengers."
Cons: "Very long lines for US security, rude US personnel."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and did an excellent job of responding to request for help with passenger who was encroaching into my space from the aisle while the fasten seatbelt sign was on."
Cons: "Crew was strangely inflexible about only specific headphones during takeoff & ascent."
