Pros: Lufthansa is a friendly airline but was unable to help with our problem because I had booked through Kayak.

Cons: When I presented my passport at the counter to receive my boarding pass, I was told my passport needed to be over 3 months before expiration. It expires January 14, 2019. It is not written on the passport, nor mentioned during booking. I’ve been to Latvia four times previously and never heard this requirement. I cancelled the flight with Lufthansa who said I must call Kayak who gave me another number to call and that number then sent an email that said there was a $350 rebooking fee for each ticket, IF they decided I was eligible for rebooking. Yes, we got a great rate, but looks like wasted $ now. I will book directly with the airline in the future to ensure the ability to rebook.

Cons: I didn't have any luggage but an associate that I met on the flight complained that it took too long to get his luggage and that the luggage was not labeled. I did not understand the English announcements during the flight. Either the audio system needs to be improved or the announcers need to speak without heavy accent or both.

Pros: The issue is not with Lufthansa but with the Berlin Airport. First of all, It is not clear that you have to do the checkinn at terminal B and then come back to the gate where you have to go pass security. This is when it gets even more complicated, the line is long and slow, there is only one security arch and xray machine, is took us almost an hour to go through.

Pros: No real complaints here. Went on 4 flights in total and all were relatively decent. The planes are old, but 3 of 4 of my planes had upgraded seats with tv screens built in, where you can plug your phone to charge. The seats are of regular comfort, nothing outstanding, but not too bad (I’ve definitely had worse). Cannot regulate AC, which is somewhat annoying, but once again, not a big deal. Did not take food options so can’t comment on that. Flight staff is more or less polite, always smiling, and will make sure you have what you need. Would probably book again with UIA if it were an option.

Cons: No AC regulation, planes are old, and very cramped waiting spaces for bathrooms.

Pros: The red wine was good. The flight was smooth.

I have used the same bag in previous Lufthansa flights without any problem. She sarcastically told me that "I am not Americanaki" - a derogatory expression used by those in Greece who consider the Americans naive.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
