The boarding was unorganized. The food was terrible- some kind of chicken covered in bbq sauce. The flight was delayed leaving, causing panic and disruption to making a connection from Frankfort. Our bags were also lost on the second flight.
Great that the seat lies flat in premium economy… and the FinnAir staff on the leg from Fra-Phil was Stellar! every other detail was crap… logistics, online experience, food, boarding, airport experience was disgusting. If airports and flying gets any more painful, I will avoid flights.
The turn time for a connecting flight from Europe to the US was only 40 minutes. We had to run through the airport, wait in passport control and the barely made the flight. Also, were were told at the counter that the maximum carryon weight was 9KG and were forced to check our two carryon. When we got to the gate, the size allowable was 11KG. Both checked pieces did not make the connection and are delayed two days. This all happened because of the 40 minute landing to takeoff time difference. When I asked the counter people about this being too tight, they said Lufthansa has a problem with this as it happens all the time.
It's my first time on Eurowings and it didn't meet the standards am used to from lufthansa.
The flight was half an hour late, which is the new normal in Europe. Friendly crew.
There was lengthy delay out of Pittsburgh but we still made it to Toronto with an hour until the connecting flight left. However, we sat on the tarmac for so long -with no explanation from the captain - that we had to run to make the next flight (a long distance). Luckily we made it, but it was only after we boarded that we got word that the flight was delayed due to the number of passengers who were delayed. If we had been told that information as we sat on the tarmac, it would have made a lot of upset and stressed out passengers feel so much better.
Pros: "The seats were nice and the food was unusually good"
Cons: "More water brought to the seats. The landing was strange. The pilot pulled up on the first approach and when the second approach was completed the steering was stuck. They ultimately got the steering to work."
Cons: "There were a couple of flight delays. Other that that, I love Lufthansa."
Cons: "Service desk personnel at the gate were very helpful and attentive. The plane was only 1/2-2/3 full, which made boarding quicker. The food was tasty and coffee was great! We were also offered juice twice during the flight. Bathrooms were clean. Since the plane wasn't full, they weren't dirty even at the end of the flight. I brought my own headphones, but the stewards provided them if you need them. My one big complaint was that our seats did not recline, thus making any kind of shut-eye near impossible. Our plane left and hour late, but the pilots stepped on the gas and we got in on time!"
Pros: "Plane from Munich was late coming to Zagreb, so my flight was late because of that and was about to lose connection flight from Munich to Brussels. Then, Lufthansa drivers waited in Munich, put us in vans and drove us to plane for Brussels. Amazing service!."
Cons: "Continues the use of entertainment tv program during the delays - take off was delayed, descending was delayed and parking was delayed."
Pros: "There was a special needs boy that sat behind me and he had some issues (long flight, understandable) and the crew were AMAZING with him. Not everyone has common or even human decency. These people were rad, and it was lovely to see."
Cons: "Honestly nothing needed improvement/ it was a really good experience!"
Pros: "rebooked onto another flight due to missing connecting flight in london"
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "This route needs a bigger plane. Always packed. Only a few rows of business class. Took off nearly an hour late. Economy on BA is very much a budget airline experience."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable, head rest is adjustable, good leg room, nice entertainment selection and no extra charge for adult beverages!"
Cons: "When we arrived at London Heathrow, there was no gait, no stairs, and no buses to transport passengers to the terminal. We were stuck on the plane for an hour waiting. The crew was helpful in keeping everyone informed and let us know they called the airport staff multiple times for the stairs/buses to get us off and those with connections (me) going. The crew was frustrated too."
Pros: "The crew was considerate in taking care of children with families and assigning new upgraded seats to those adults who were looking for sleep and quiet. They were also helpful in getting me a special gluten free meal even though I did not order it in advance."
Pros: "Smooth journey once we took off."
Cons: "Plane delayed by one and a half hours due to a bit of rain!"
Pros: "Service was really good"
Cons: "The seats for business class were economy seats but with the middle seat being a tray!! Expecting bigger seats with more leg room. Disappointed."
Pros: "The crew did their best. They were efficient and polite, no complaints"
Cons: "First of all, it wasn’t British Airways, it was operated by American Airlines. The seats were cramped; just barely enough kneeroom and I’m only 5’10”. There were no monitors on the seat backs and no choice of entertainment, only monitors hanging from the ceiling. I suppose the airline assumes, probably correctly, that these days everybody has their own entertainment on laptop or tablet. The problem here, though, was that there were no charging plugs at the seats, so you’d better have a full battery when you get on and hope it lasts. Of course, I could have just read the inflight magazine, except that my reading light was broken. Food was decent for airline food."
Pros: "The crew was great and I really appreciate how they accommodated a family with 4 young children"
Cons: "They cancelled two of my flights in one weekend. We will not use American Airlines again."
Pros: "Non-stop flight and arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "No individual entertainment in seat backs and the common system wasn’t working. But, since it was an overnight flight it wasn’t that disappointing"
Pros: "I was able to sleep comfortably, even in the middle seat."
Cons: "Not been in a middle seat"
Pros: "We arrived early and everything went off without a hitch."
Cons: "Seats were really tight. Made worse by the person in front who had him s seat back."
Pros: "The flight was early to arrive. There was also a rather frightening bit of turbulence, and the pilot explained why it had occurred, which I found very reassuring."
Cons: "The food was definitely below average. It's virtually all carbohydrates.Other airlines provide you with a printed description of the menu options, so it's easier to make a choice. "Chicken or pasta" doesn't give the passengers any idea of what they are actually choosing. This time the chicken dish was served with pearl couscous, so it was basically pasta as well. The salad I was given was brown and wilted, and while the cabin attendants were kind enough to give me two salad that were in better shape (after meal service), I just think that quality control should have prevented a inedible salad from being served in the first place. I am also extremely opposed to American Airlines Transatlantic luggage fees. Since I was moving abroad rather than taking a short trip, I was not pleased about paying 100 USD for a second bag on top of an already expensive flight."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The delay and the seat comfort for purchasing the main cabin seats was not as expected."
Cons: "I was so disappointed as soon as I walked into the plane. It was very old plane and very dated. There was no entertainment center. It was a long flight with nothing to do. :( I will never fly with American Airlines to Europe again)"
Pros: "Because he flight wasn’t full, the seat next to me wasn’t occupied, giving me a bit more space."
Cons: "Food was bland. Flight was delayed almost two hours."
Pros: "Basic flight. Super uncomfortable seats. Older plane. Cramped. Pilot was great. Flight smooth."
Cons: "Got there safe!"
Cons: "The people working on the land side lack of a complete sense of service. They are rude, unrespectful and with no professionalism. It is a shame that the last impression you get from Israel is the aggressiveness."
Cons: "They lost my bag and I still haven't heard from them"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful and the flight arrived early, even though we left a little bit late - as such - I was very happy with the flight. The onboard entertainment system was wifi based and there was a USB charging port in the seat too - modern aircraft."
Cons: "I had no complaints - the flight was just what it should have been ie no issues"
Pros: "Not much. There was one flight attendant that seemed pleasant but I wouldn’t know for sure since the attendants ignored all passengers except for those who had preordered their meals."
Cons: "It was extremely frustrating that there was no kiosk available when checking in. I did not have a bag to check, yet I waited on a ridiculously long line to check in for my flight. The people working the desk at the gate were slow and unpleasant. Service on plane was terrible."
Cons: "The crew was very unpleasant . I boarded the plane - was not even greeted. This was not like business class at all . I felt like I just wasted money and did not get even close the service I expected. Flight attendants were ignoring my requests - no blankets no cocktails ... very bad ."
Pros: "Nothing. Iberia wouldn’t let me on the plane."
Cons: "Iberia could have checked us in and if we had been unable to get on that particular flight could have put us on a different flight instead of just telling us we were out of $360 and we would have to pay full price for a new ticket."
Pros: "Arrived at destination"
Cons: "Left an hour and a half late due to mechanical problems. This also disrupted in flight entertainment system. Got to destination"
Pros: "the plane was clean and in excellent condition. crew was very professional and courteous. food ok Entertainment and screen quality very good."
Cons: "seats could be improved but overall not so uncomfortable"
Cons: "There is not enough space for my legs and specially when the passenger in front move the seat"
Pros: "Good entertainment options, Good food options, Pleasant staff and flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats were not as comfortable as the ones on the British Airways flight I took from NYC to Rome."
