Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was professional and helpful."
Cons: "Seat was narrow for business class."
Cons: "This Lufthansa flight was operated by United Airlines. Coach seating was uncomfortable after a couple hours despite moving around regularly."
Pros: "The crew were so friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I was told on the phone earlier (and very rudely) there are no gluten free options for eating. I have celiac disease and do not do the diet for "fun". It's for health. I found out thanks to the excellent crew on board there is an option."
Pros: "The flight crew & the flight itself was great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 hours. Not only did I miss my connecting flight, but I also missed my rescheduled flight. I had to wait another 7 hours in the airport waiting for a flight. And due to this I missed an important meeting."
Pros: "Everything was amazing. I didn’t like the part where my luggage was lost and I still have no idea when or if it will ever be found."
Cons: "Having my luggage arrive at my destination with me."
Pros: "After i paid 37$ to reserve a Ileseat,i was seated on the window with two people next to me.i paid for that seat so i dont have to ask two sleeping people ,five times ,to let me go to the bathroom,do to a medical condition.needless to say it was embarrassing and very inconvinientfor me as well as t"
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Boarding crew in EWR insisted that my small carry on had to be checked in. MANY passengers were able to bring on board luggage that was larger and clearly heavier. I don’t understand why I was one of the exceedingly few passengers pulled out of the queue to have luggage checked in. Food was sad."
Pros: "Priority boarding for parents with children was a huge help. Provided extra blankets and most of the crew's friendliness was very appreciated."
Cons: "Provided bassinet is much too small for even a 17 months old. Also very hard bedding made it impossible for the kid to sleep. We observed same with the other parents. Alone with that, the height of the bassinet makes it easy for the kid to get distracted. WORSE PART: Our daughter couldn't get comfortable to sleep and got fussy, so I took her for a walk which didn't help much. Since it was bedtime 11pm with 0 to little traffic, and to avoid her crying from disturbing everyone I resorted to one of the bathrooms with her. She did fall asleep for about 1 hour until one the FA came literally BANGING on the door. Very rude even after I calmly explained the situation. So sorry for such people with no compassion nor understanding in their hearts."
Cons: "The problem is with KAYAK. KAYAK booked us a carrier light ticket and failed to inform us at the time of the booking that it was a tariff without checked in baggage that was being offered. Fortunately, LUFTHANSA informed us of this fact at checkin and we purchased carriage with checked in baggage. This makes me wary of buying tickets through KAYAK in the future."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times and we were kept waiting at the gate without knowing when exactly we will leave."
Pros: "The service and the entertainment system"
Cons: "Food was not up to the mark, which it almost always is. The crew were a little rude at times, which is also not very common with this airlines."
Pros: "Great customer service at check in window, very comfortable and clean airplane, very good cabin crew..overall highly satisfied"
Cons: "It was difficult to leave my seat when passenger a front of me put his seat all the way to the back. Did not have that problem on other Lufthansa flights to and from Europe. I"
Pros: "The efficiency and kindness of the flight attendants made the trip enjoyable. The water service really helped with dehydration. Also, the food was EXCELLENT, which you don't often hear on a flight. My seat was comfortable and the movie and television selections was great. Will ABSOLUTELY fly with them again!"
Cons: "Lufthansa warse company ever fly with . everything was bad . delay like two hours , food only meat because No enough chicken and No socks to warm my foot because I was feeling cold ."
Cons: "My flight got canceled. It is awful, extended my travel Time significantly."
Pros: "Clean, modern place. Professional staff."
Pros: "HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE"
Cons: "Dropped us off in random country for two days with no information and missing 3 days of our trip and losing money on the trip we paid for. Limited information given to us once they abandoned us following the “emergency landing” that the pilot was “sick” stuck here over 24 hours and now my new flight is overbooked and my boyfriend has a seat but I DO NOT."
Cons: "The old airplane, small seats."
Cons: "Pathetic food, and really rude crew by the standards of an international flight."
Pros: "It was a long flight overseas they did a good job of keeping everything under control when there was a medical problem on board and you get what you pay for. Ok legroom"
Cons: "Their ability to work with you on issues such as lost bag is so disgusting that i dont think ill fly with them again I had to call them every time, consistently on hold for 30+ min at a time just to get to someone who could work with me. They hung up on me 3 separate times thus restsrting the issue. DO NOT LET THEM GIVE YOUR BAG TO BAGGAGEEXPRESS!!! You will never see you bag again. 1/10 customer service"
Pros: "Nothing really. It was an overall terrible flight."
Cons: "The crew was so bad. When asked for my special meal 2.5 hrs into the flight, they said you haven’t ordered any, which in fact I had a month before my flight. The crew member instead insisted that ”you should've brought your own food” not once but twice. No courtesy nothing. I was super disappointed. I fly a lot and this was hands down my worst flight. Also, the aircraft and seats were terribly uncomfortable (Boeing 747-8 Economy). Boarding took forever as well. Overall a very shocking experience from a very experienced airline otherwise."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight great crew."
Pros: "Clean plan, attentive attendants, flight was delayed 15 minutes but notified us promptly."
Cons: "Boarding was an unorganized free-for-all"
Pros: "The entire crew went above and beyond to ensure the most comfortable and enjoyable experience."
Pros: "Seat comfort, easy of boarding."
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight. Flight crew was amazing. Comfortable seats and lighting for an overnight flight. Food was good and stuffing."
Cons: "Headsets were collected half hour before landing (minor issue). Except for the recommendations for this flight, movie highlights were well hidden in the entertainment system."
Pros: "Boarding to exit all went smooth"
Cons: "Air was sometimes stale"
Pros: "Large leg room"
Cons: "Flight late missed connection flight for me. TV on arm, too small too close difficult to rewind had to shut down during descent while seatback TVs were still allowed to play"
Pros: "I LOVED the Crew. Exceptional! Polite, accommodating, kind, friendly. Just wonderful. The food was pretty good too! The entertainment was great. I loved that the toilets were in a separate area downstairs! The flight was overall pretty comfortable. The cabin temperature was also great, not the freezing temperature found on American planes. Thank you LUFTHANSA!!!"
Cons: "The flight was late boarding and late arriving in Munich. I had a connecting flight to make and that was a harrowing experience. I had no precedence offers the other passengers in deplaning. I was given no help in making my connecting flight. I had to queue up for border control. I had to go up and down numerous escalators. I was stopped by a policeman asking for papers which I had already given to border control. I had to take a train and change terminals. My connecting flight was departing from the farthest gate possible in the terminal. I was running the entire time, and I barely made it. Had I not been running, I would have missed my connection."
Cons: "Once off international flight in Dusseldorf, had to go through passport check prior to transfer onto second flight... One passport check person in line for almost 200 people... We did make our flight, however very stressful for no reason. Lufthansa was amazing, Euro-wings folks... very unhelpful..."
Cons: "The birding officer didn't inform me about the visa requirements to cross from Dusslouf to Vinna airport. This caused a big problem for me in the airport, where I: 1- Wasn't allowed to catch my flight ti Vinnea and this was both financial and time lost for me. 2- I was locked in Dussluff airport for more than 14 hours, I was threatened to be sent back to USA or any other country. This caused physiological damage for me, as I been treated like an animal 3- I was asked to pay for my new ticket ( Dussloff - Istanbul-Amman )"
Cons: "Ridiculous policy that couldn't get seat until 23 hours in advance, then that wasn't even true. Then misinformed me about what kind of seat I had been assigned. Then insisted I check a bag that did not need to be checked. Then the food was inedible. Flight happened to be late so I missed my connection, and they offered some more misinformation in that regard; There were of course human beings (staff) to deal with, but they had been reduced by Lufthansa's rules and systems so they were just robots, repeating over and over again inflexible policies. Horrible!"
Pros: "Unusually rough and crowded flight though that is hardly the fault of the airline."
Cons: "In economy class, there should either be adequate room for average sizes people at the least or seats should NOT be allowed to tilt back."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, I waited on the service center line for over 3 hours and in the end had to take a 8hr train ride in order to get to not completly miss my sailing trip. I arrivd to my boat 10hrs late when I was scheduled to take a 1.5hr flight and would have arrived 5 hours early."
Pros: "The basics were fine."
Cons: "The crew on the flight was really loud and talked about unprofessional things. Every time I was woken up it was by a flight attendant talk to another attendant really loud across the plane. Also, this was advertised as Lufthansa but was actually United. Kayak seems to do this frequently, and as a customer it is confusing and disappointing."
Pros: "Plane was delayed because of a computer problem which the Captain suggested was the fault of United. Seats really crammed. Never able to successfully use the WiFi. Newark is a terrible airport!"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and very accommodating. We were also very impressed by the plane itself. The seating was the most comfortable either of us has experienced on an overseas flight."
Cons: "Good for entertainment but the headphone insert in my particular seat would only play through one ear. Not a headphone issue, they worked fine in another screen. Inconvenient for a long flight."
Pros: "I was bumped up to Economy Plus which gave me lots of leg room on a half empty flight. New plane was great"
Cons: "You lost my baggage! I checked it over to domestic in Newark, but despite the 3.5 hour turnaround time you still managed to leave my bags, and those of several other people on my flight to CVG, in Newark"
Pros: "Food was good, boarding was easy, transfer in Munich very manageable"
Cons: "The seats are unusually narrow and there is no place to put your book and iPad in the seat pocket in front of you. Also, very unremarkable service"
Pros: "That the flight left on time and arrived early. The flight attendant was very friendly but knew his job well, and went the extra mile to be sure we were all comfortable."
Cons: "That the plane seemed noisy (from the back row at least). That the flight attendant did not help me find my seat. After travelling almost 24 hours I was tired and was trying to find the seat using the boarding gate number. I figured out I should have been in 9 D by the end of the flight. Instead I sat in the last row because it was empty and there was not a seat 26A. I almost missed this flight because my boarding pass said 26A and really it was 27A. I did look at the board. I did not compare the board to the ticket, and the numbers were so close my tired brain thought they matched. When it was time to board I checked at gate 26A and she sent me around the construction. I told the guy there (27A) I was looking for 26A and he said to go around the construction. I told him they sent me to him and he insisted I go around the construction. I would have missed the plane if someone else had not come up just then and said he was going to Richmond. At that point I told the guy I was too, and he checked my ticket. Some of the problem was my tired brain and you cannot fix that. Perhaps when someone tells your employee that they have already been sent around the construction the employee should just check the ticket instead of trying to send them back."
Pros: "In my experience Lufthansa is almost always on time and very professional in how they manage their flights."
Cons: "Seats have too little legroom. Even pushed to back in seat, my knees pushed seat in front of me. Not on person seemed to watch entertainment, because of the program you have to sign up for. Seems like basic tv or so could be free, even if there is charge for movies."
Pros: "i am glad that i got there safely and ahead of time"
Cons: "it was NOT a lufthansa flight, which is what i was expecting and wanted. it was a united flight . i wanted to fly lufthansa because it is a higher quality experience than united, but for some reason after i bought the ticket i learned that united was operating the flight for lufthansa"
Pros: "The in-flight crew was nice and accommodating, to be expected after the delay. The entertainment system had many movies that were neither dubbed into nor subtitled in English or any other language I understood (such as Goodbye, Lenin, a film I love and have seen with subtitles). The gluten-free meal was bland, perhaps to be expected but as it was my first time ordering one, I wouldn't have known what to expect."
Cons: "Worst of all was the cold, unconcerned manner of a young woman who did most of the attending the crowd of delayed passengers at the counter. I don't ask for abject deference, but she seemed unmoved by our plight and was cold bordering on unpleasant when dealing with different passengers' delay dilemmas. This young woman was American of African descent; for the record, I am as well, which made me think she just took a dislike to me, but she didn't appear to be much nicer to anyone else and just could not be bothered in the midst of the nearly three-hour delay, a major hassle for everyone including the airline. For what it's worth, her name starts with an N. (I didn't have my contacts on) Another major fail was the Lufthansa crew's assurance ahead of the flight that we would be rebooked on later flights after missing our connections. This promise was made rather breezily; clearly those making it in New York didn't have to deal with the business end of a tired, disgruntled crowd trying to cope with the fallout of missed connections. Once we got to Frankfurt, there was one lady holding a sign aloft; the sign bore the names of presumably first or business class passengers who would be shuttled to their new gates. That lady impatiently waved people from the steerage (aka economy) mob away and towards three overwhelmed Lufthansa agents helping people locate their new flights and gates. The gentleman who helped me sent me, and, I'm guessing, quite a few of my hapless fellow travellers, to gate A13 to collect my new boarding pass. Not knowing the airport at all, I followed a set of signs that took me through a monorail to an access area that - surprise! - I could not enter with my outdated boarding pass. Finally an airport official helped the group of A13-bound passengers to the Lufthansa check-in counter, where yet another Lufthansa agent disappointed in his dealing of the situation. Had I not stated that I refused to queue up or to countenance my long-suffering fellow passengers doing so, he would have had us wait in line, including one young woman about to miss a second flight. The agent at the desk was very friendly, but all in all I found the airline's responsiveness to the evolving situations of its steerage passengers (a significant chunk of its income) a great disappointment. I don't expect I'll give the airline a second chance. There's too much good service to be had from Arabian Gulf-based airlines at comparable fares."
Cons: "The week before the trip start I was told about the sudden itenenary change, and I have to wait 3 more hrs for connecting United flight back home. When I got back to US, even that flight was canceled, and I was delayed for 2 more hrs so that United can have a completely packed last flight to st. Louis. My checked suitcase arrived with a different flight. United shows complete disregard of their passengers. I believe I overpaid for the tickets considering such a service."
Pros: "First and foremost, I appreciate the crew refusing to take off until the broken valve was absolutely perfect. Although this took well over an hour after we were supposed to take off, my priority was to come home safely to my kids. So thank you for making that happen!"
Cons: "As a result of the broken valve, we were all sitting on the runway past 9:30 or so. It would have been nice to be offered a cup of tea or snack in that time. Additionally, the video screen assigned to my seat was not working properly. It was a touch screen, and something was malfunctioning. Perhaps someone can keep a closer eye on these details."
Pros: "Service and meals were excellent and well organized."
Cons: "I booked the flight with Lufthansa and thought I was flying with them. When I first went to terminal C at Newark with my paperwork United told me I had to go to terminal B. I went to ' B ' and Lufthansa told me to go back to Terminal C , that I was flying on a United flight. So I went back and the United people helped me. It all worked out well but was initially confusing."
Pros: "Crew was nice on plane and they were trying to keep us filled with food and water."
Cons: "Horrible desk staff! Why would any airline refuse to allow a customer with kids on the plane a little sooner to allow for more time with organizing ourselves and kids. It's already intimidating to fly let alone internationally and for them to make us wait until our boarding time is inconsiderate. Plus united air had the absolute smallest and uncomfortable. I could not move and let along our poor toddler was cramped up. Our newborn was ok but it's like a 2 seat turned into 3 seats! Horrie."
Pros: "Fast flight Had a whole row to myself Distancing was good"
Cons: "People sitting in front of me would keep putting down their mask and didn’t listen to the flight instructions when being showed the demonstration. Flight attendant wasn’t as friendly as other flight attendants I’ve had"
Pros: "The agent was at the air Canada counter was amazing. He helped with getting my toddler a ticket, he walked us all the way to our gate because we were late boarding."
Cons: "My toddler should have been issued a ticket from the beginning if that’s the policy. It took forever to cross the airport and then i had to figure out where to get our tickets which took over an hour and then we had to go through tsa again. Thank God the agent helped us through. I ended up not having food nor water for my son nor myself and of course no service on the flight. It was a miserable day to say the least."
Pros: "Food and drinks provided were really appreciated especially the wine/beer and hot meals on the long flight."
Cons: "Not enough leg room etc. for long flights. Cushions and blankets were nice."
Cons: "Flight was late"
Cons: "Seat cushions"
Pros: "The movies and outlets for charging things"
Cons: "Don’t allow screaming babies/kids on the flight next time"
Pros: "quiet plane"
Cons: "2.5 hours delayed flight without prompt notifications. Honest and prompt flight-delay alerts. Updates for delay came *every* half-hour. No opportunity to schedule ANYTHING based truthful delay estimations and the lack of timely communication."
Cons: "Bags didn't get loaded, plane delayed. Poor customer service."
Pros: "Staff polite and provided fast service."
Cons: "Boarding was hazy and let room for loosing the plane."
Pros: "The variety of food for purchase was nice!"
Cons: "THERE WAS NO WIFI ON A 6HR FLIGHT!!! omg its 2019. mind blown."
Pros: "Flight and service was very good"
Cons: "Crew showed up late and we subsequently were delayed."
Cons: "The flight was operated by Air Canada, who habitually assume either that the people in the final row have no hand luggage or simply suffer from a severe lack of operational storage capacity. Overhead bins full of spare plastic cups. As far as the crew are concerned, no problem, because you can just push your way three or four rows forward while everyone else is boarding and then take someone else's overhead space. When will Air Canada learn how to run an airline?"
Pros: "Flight went extremely smooth. No issues during the layover they even got us an earlier flight to our layover destination, giving us more time between flights."
Pros: "Our flight boarded slightly later than expected but ended up taking off on time. Flight crew was courteous and provided water the entire time to ensure everyone was hydrated. In flight entertainment was nicely done with a personal touch screen headrest TV that had ample TV and movies to choose from. We landed slightly ahead of schedule and by the time I got to baggage claim, my oversized bag (snowboard bag) was already waiting for me."
Pros: "TV in seat, new plane. I liked nothing else about this crappy airline."
Cons: "Delayed because they couldn't fit the luggage on the plane, had to pay extra for my family to sit together, worst service ever on board, the slowest old ladies pushing the cart, 90 minutes late in perfect weather, took forever to get the baggage."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew helped make the situation better but a 3 hour delay made my experience unpleasant."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled 5 mins before I arrived at airport and never received any notification"
Cons: "Always late, overall service is appalling. Only reason they are around is due to protective policies of the Canadian government"
Pros: "Our connecting flight was cancelled due to weather. That is truly out of the airline’s control. What is in their control is communicating the status of the flight with us. When we checked in they took email addresses and cell phone numbers for status updates. We never received any updates. Consequently we didn’t know the flight had been cancelled until it was too late to make an adequate adjustment. On top of that we had to deal with the worst customer service rep in the world at the ticket booth when we struggled to make alternate plans. Completely unsatisfactory experience."
Cons: "One leg of the flight was cancelled only a few hours before take-off. Huge inconvenience with no remedies. Will not ever fly them again."
Cons: "Information provided on delays was limited and information on connecting by flights was incorrect"
Pros: "Cleanliness and accessibility to my nearest airport at the time I need it."
Cons: "Children are crying through the flights."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked so I was on standby even though I paid 1 week in advance Bag was missing. Shitty experience"
Pros: "Not much...crew very nice"
Cons: "On the flight coming to Toronto the staff randomly choose ppl to check bags at gate...no consistency which is very frustrating Flight was delayed. On the flight got returning I arrived at airport at 730 for my 9 PM flight ....they knew it would be delayed earlier in the day but never posted it so ppl could adjust their schedules. My last 4 flights with AC have been disappointing"
Pros: "Gate customer service (Jaslon) at Newark Airport was great. When my flight from Newark to Toronto was late and I was going to miss my connection, Jaslon was very helpful by rebooking me on a better flight and having my bags transferred immediately. Second checked bag fee was reasonable,"
Cons: "You pay for everything - snacks, headphones, food. Slow counter service at check-in at Newark"
Cons: "Check in staff not present until after 430, yet it was recommended to arrive at the airport 2 hrs early for the 6am flight. The group of people waiting were unorganized and handled poorly which I suspect was due to such low staffing i.e. 1 person trying to adress, organize and then process ~100 people. Entertainment system didn't work on the flight either."
Pros: "The people at the front desk in gander were great"
Cons: "There were delayed at every stop. I had a 9 hour delay because the flight attendant had food poisoning. How was there not a replacement?"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable over all. It was on time. The staff was pleasant."
Cons: "It was hard to connect our computer to the movies. It was rather confusing and eventually we came to the conclusion that there were only 2 films that were compatible with our laptops. They were the unrated films from film festivals."
Pros: "Some staff were professional and nice."
Cons: "The staff at the check in counter need some additional training because they didn't notice that the boarding pass that they gave me did not give me a seat on my flight. I didnt notice until boarding the plane. I showed the customer service agent at the gate and that's when she told me I didnt have a seat on the plane and that they had to get me one before I could board it. Everything ended up working out in the but the same problem happened with another flyer and they couldn't get her a seat. So she had to wait for the next flight!! I felt bad for her because like myself she paid for a seat on that plane and because of Air Canada's horrible system she missed her flight. Also, my flight to Newark was nightmare because my flight from London to Toronto was delayed, and my connecting flight to Newark left without waiting for me and other passengers on the delayed plane. I think that's the most crazy thing because all us passengers paid for that flight and we had no choice but to wait the next day. We were accommodated with a hotel after waiting hours and hours but it was still very frustrating."
Pros: "Other than the usher at the check-in desk, all other Air Canada staff were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Usher at check-in desk had terrible communication skills. He had an antagonist tone that set an aggressive tone for those just trying to comply to his directions."
Pros: "Overall a good experience. Had to pay for food but it was quite good so I didn't mind. Supposedly the crew were short staffed but I found them attentive and helpful and to be honest I believe the people who complained may have been a little precious."
Cons: "Air Canada is always late to board, take off, or to depart from the aircraft for the most random reasons. Every time I fly with apr Canada I can never depart or arrive in time; it's always a problem."
Pros: "Everything was solid."
Cons: "There was no WI-FI which was inconvenient. The crew was good...could have been nicer on the way from Newark to Vancouver."
Cons: "They over sold tickets"
Cons: "i was told if i donot check my self in icant bord he was very rude I am hanNdy cap he did not care over 77years old"
Pros: "Very friendly staff at airport. Saw we were flying with children and were able to put us on stand by to fly sooner."
Pros: "I liked the newer plane as the head rests were more comfortable with the movable sides."
Pros: "One of the flight attendant saw I needed help holding my second big bag while I was putting my carry on in and she held it for me without me asking and helped me find my seat, it was very stress relieving for me, and I really appreciated that. She was also very nice to everybody."
Cons: "I had a sprite and the amount was very little, I feel like the cups have got smaller. But that's not a big deal"
Pros: "There was an excellent agent during boarding. I didn't catch his name but he was a tall dark skin gentlemen and he went over and beyond to assit me. His kindness left a lasting impression on me. I only wish I had his name, because he deserves to be noticed for his excellent service."
Cons: "The flight was considerably delayed, so that we missed our connection, the airport personnel at Newark sent us all over the place attempting to pass off the problem onto somebody else- even encouraging passengers to go to Montreal and "figure it out from there." Bags were taken off the plane and then put back on...the subsequent flight (the next day) was also delayed, and required half he plane to sprint through Montreal to their connections. It was not worth it. Especially considering I tried to call Air Canada for some of my refund and the number they gave me was a fax line."
Cons: "Flight out of Newark delayed so we were going to miss the connection. We were rebooked to fly via London but we lost 6 hours in Rome. Air Canada attendant at Newark said the flight was always delayed and passengers regularly needed to be rebooked. You should recommend air Canada cancels selling this itinerary or bringing the Newark flight forward to de risk any delays"
Cons: "All three Air Canada flights that I had to take on this itinerary were late including the 2nd one which was six hours late. Air Canada personnel on this 2nd flight did not do a good job of communicating information to the customers during the delay. Air Canada booked be on a 3rd night that lead me to only get 3 hours sleep in a hotel. AC does not work with the customers when booking flights. they just make changes after the previous flight has left the ground."
Pros: "Flight was good.dela"
Cons: "Delay for both ways"
Pros: "Entertainment system is good"
Cons: "Crew was an hour late arriving at airport so flight was delayed. No food, not even a snack, on a 5+ hour flight is not acceptable."
Pros: "Free movies."
Cons: "Delays at the gate going and coming back"
Pros: "I was surprised at how much leg room there was. Also, there were a lot of entertainment choices for such a short flight."
Cons: "They didn't clearly call zones, so I wasn't sure when I could board and ended up being one of the last people to get on the plane."
Pros: "Really took advantage by jacking the prices on return flight changes caused by their cancellation of outbound due to weather Because I had two one way flights, the changes required for the return flight were my problem"
Cons: "Ripoff 500 and two hours of hold time to get acrewed"
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "Delayed for 4hrs and less than adequate meal voucher for $10 for dinner? Very disappointed and I'm a long time AC customer."
Cons: "Very very bad customer service. I was flying to Rome from NYC on Friday night and my flight was cancelled. I was just notified by a text saying that there was a change in my flight. After calling customer service, I was forced to take the afternoon flight on Friday as I had to be in Rome for a wedding on Saturday. Even if I was rushed to the airport (my call with the customer service took place at 12.00 and the flight was after 2.30 hours...) and cancelled all my appointments and had to take special permission to leave from work, I was never offered any upgrades or refunds while at the same time the attitude of the rep was take the change or leave it. At the airport, I called again the customer service to understand better the cancellation policy based on their website and their response was to apply on the website and maybe I would get a little bit of money and they don't offer upgrades for these kind of situations. They indicated that it is up to gate manager to decide for upgrades, which when I tried this approach I was notified that the customer service should have flag me appropriately....I don't really care about the refund or the upgrade as at the end I was able to reach my destination on time; however, it was extremely disappointing to see a whole organization that does not take into consideration their customers time and ignore any descent customer service to them. Simply, never again."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled and no alternative arrangements made Worst thing the guy at front desk did not even announce the cancellation and subsequent impact Poor customer service"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic as always and put people at ease even in the midst of a pandemic."
Cons: "Food and rough flight"
Cons: "Only one mini bag of prezels for a 4 hrs flight. Only 5 movies to watch. Terrible experience!"
Cons: "The plain was cold It’s the first time ever I had get my coat on because of the temp No in seat screens and expensive WiFi"
Cons: "The boarding procédure in Dublin requires à long walks in 3 différent locations. Should be ma de shorter"
Pros: "United es la peor aerolínea nos trataron muy mal y nos cobraron exceso de equipaje sin tenerlo y casi perdemos el vuelo por su culpa"
Pros: "When it finally took off the flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "Plane was delayed coming in, then we were told we were waiting on catering. Then it became a weather issue. Then we boarded. Weather got worse so they took us off. The second time we boarded and were told we’re waiting on catering who wasn’t on site then had to go through airport security. After 3HOURS , we were asked to leave the plane. For rebounding the next morning with no explanation. The next morning the flight was delayed an additional 3HOURS. We were never given food in all this time of a wait. This became an 18+ hour delay. We definitely missed our connection and they rebooked it."
Pros: "Compare to ANA or other Asian Airlines like Singapore or Thai, United is in the bottom."
Cons: "They should keep the plane clean and have better customer service. United use to be good but they towards bottom."
Pros: "Crew was nice and very efficient"
Cons: "Maintenance didn't have plane ready to depart on time"
Cons: "Crew was not nice and friendly."
Cons: "I was lead to believe I was booking a flight on lufthansa. It turned out it was United in a confirmation email a few weeks following the purchase. Then 24 hours prior to boarding, a notification comes in that I am flying Air Brussels. This leaves me with confusion - which airport terminal to go to, where to check in, who to call, etc. When I finally arrive to the airport at JFK, I find there is no Air Brussels Check in and that I need to go to United. But United no longer operates out of JFK, so I was finally directed to the British Airways terminal to check in with Eurowings. The flight was supposedly a Eurowings flight in collaboration with Lufthansa and United but operated by Brussels Airlines. I’ve never before experienced this miscommunication and confusion with one single flight, especially in my home country. When I booked the flight, it was quite clear it was Lufthansa and I paid Lufthansa prices. I was very disappointed overall with the experience leading me up to boarding time and had I known it was not a Lufthansa plane and crew, I would not have booked it. I hope you can I understand my frustration as this was poorly communicated and manasged and was quite misleading from the start. I would appreciate some compensation or recognition for the confusion as I will no longer be using Kayak or third party booking sites due to the way this was handled. I am a loyal Kayak user, but this was just too much and nothing like I’ve ever experienced before."
Pros: "Economy Plus was well worth the small up charge."
Cons: "Took a long time to remove your dishes after the meal; never offered a mid flight snack."
Cons: "I had very little time to make my connection in Newark. Other airports/airlines have given me a short connection pass which has allowed passengers to make their connection with less stress. The security line inNewsrk was ridiculous. I spoke to a TSA agent who couldn’t have cared less if I missed my flight and a United representative who told me to “just try.” In the end, I had to ask other passengers if I could go ahead of them. While I made my flight with a few minutes to spare, the process could have been much easier and the United Rep could have done more. He could have just called the gate at the very least to let them know I was coming. Apathy is not an indication of good customer service."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "I flew 1st class WIfi should be included. Eve free wifi for the whole plane"
Pros: "Good, everything on time, good friendly service"
Pros: "Ordered the Protein Box, it was ok.. crew members nice."
Cons: "The Smell on the flight was unacceptable, I was sitting about a couple rows across the middle bathroom, and it smelled horrible, I had never had an experience like this on any other flight, I fly United many times a year, and this had me really uncomfortable for almost 5 hours, since the flight was delayed almost 1.5 hours while we sat onboard the aircraft at the gate, that had me miss dinner plans too in San Francisco as well. I really hope they can fix that, For the good of the passengers, felt like I was going to be nauseous all the time, and I'm really not someone that complains or takes time to review badly."
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "seat didn't recline"
Pros: "Great food, friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible seats"
Pros: "The entire process was easy and the flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and service was good, which is rare in United!"
Cons: "The dinner was paasable but the breakfast was horrible. Stale croissant. No butter."
Pros: "Great service from the flight crew, comfortable plane, in-flight movies and entertainment."
Pros: "Food vouchers were nice. $20 did not cover lunch and dinner for that day. So it coupd have been more like $40."
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "United did nothing to help me get home to my wife whom went InTo labor today when one of their flights got delayed which in turn made me miss my flight from Newark to west palm beach the risk of missing our first child's birth was supposed to be made better by a 10$ food voucher and a oh well that I had to spend the night in an airport and wait another 12 hours to be by my wife's side !! How does a billion dollar company not have any flights after 8 pm ?? Ridiculous The"
Pros: "Well, at least they gave me a blanket to sleep with."
Cons: "You still have to pay to use tv, movies, and internet. The flight attendants did not give me any drink or snacks. They did not say goodbye or wish me a good time back home. Flying in the plane itself was awful, as it continuously shook even when weather was alright. The pilot seemed rude. No warnings from the pilot when we were going through bad weather - just a surprise "HANG ON" as the plane would shake in a frenzy. The chairs were also incredibly uncomfortable and very hard to relax on. I couldnt even sleep well, and it was an overnight trip. Seriously felt so disrespected by the crew and the company, and this experience was the same with all 4 flights I took (to portland and back). I will never again choose United."
Pros: "Great crew as always"
Cons: "Wifi was unreliable."
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "In efforts to reduce my carbon footprint and reduce my use of plastic bottles and single use plastic cups, I always travel with a refillable stainless steel water bottle. It saddened and frustrated me when during the drink service portion of the flight the flight attendant refused to serve me water in my bottle, which was clean, dry and when uncovered the brim has the same diameter as the plastic cups used on United flights. First the flight attendant just said that she is not allowed to fill my personal bottle but kept offering me several cups of water instead. When I explained that it wasn't because I was really thirsty, it was just that I prefer to not use disposable cups, she proceeded to tell me my bottle was too big to fill anyways and she couldn't give me that much water. I have never had such an averse reaction to trying to be more eco friendly. In fact people are usually thrilled and applaud the Effort. If this is in fact the United policy, I hope united will reconsider it. Every small effort goes towards making a big impact."
Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "My flight was 7:20 pm staff didn't let anyone know how many hours gonna be delayed and got the message from United Airlines 8:30 departure but it's allready 8:57 pm plain did not arrive yet staff still didn't let anyone know, I need to go to the counter and ask them how many hours gonna be delayed."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Very cramped seating in the back of the plane."
Cons: "Seat is very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was awesome very patient understanding and amazing, not having available entertainment like some of the other Airlines in the seat was not very satisfying to say the least"
Cons: "A group of passengers delayed our flight by bringing too many bags on board that were unable to be stored away. I hope the process of boarding and upset a lot of people"
Pros: "Clean flight, boarding went smoothly, everything on time."
Pros: "I didn't die."
Cons: "UA1742 plane (777) is a poorly designed piece of junk. The call button for the flight attendants sits right where everyone's elbow rests, and as a result the flight was 4 hours of constant dinging despite 3-4 announcements of the problem. it is unbelievable that this seat was designed in this matter. Incredibly poor engineering."
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food in seating"
Cons: "Seats, lines, late"
Cons: "Having to walk a LONG distance from one terminal to the next and almost missing my flight due to delays. Then we had a delay from the bridge from plane to the airport was not working!!!"
Cons: "Had to sprint through the airport to make a connection because the flight was delayed and then went to a gate in the international terminal which was far across the airport from my connection."
Pros: "It was my first flight ever and it was great and smooth, I enjoyed it!"
Cons: "It was cold and they didn't have any blankets so I was uncomfortable but other then that it was great."
Cons: "Personal device entertainment wasn't working because of a WiFi issue"
Cons: "Typical horror story... Lied to by gate attendants... Hours late to destination with no apologies... Essentially got totally screwed without reimbursement."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Tight seats - and I'm a small person!"
Pros: "Loved the amenities."
Cons: "Entertainment was announced, yet nothing came up when I connected with the United app."
Cons: "The plane was delayed quite some time and we sat on the Tarmac for about 40 minutes too long."
Pros: "The entertainment on the app for movies is pretty cool but everything else sucks!!!"
Cons: "Never never never ontime. I can't trust your flights to get me where I need to go. 3 weeks in a row your 5:20pm out of Richmond, VA was late due to waiting on an aircraft. How can that be? You didn't fix the problem the first time? I won't be flying United unless something changes. You lost a customer for life"
Pros: "The United wifi free with a tablet was nice."
Cons: "Departure time changed 3 times from 30min late to 20min early to 30min late again."
