Not even a coffee without paying for it
The layover in Frankfurt is not enough time to make it to the connection. Frankfurt security is understaffed and despite Lufthansa being aware of this, they offer the connecting flight, which is impossible to make. Lufthansa did not pay for hotel or food despite booking me with an unreasonable amount of time between a flight that wasn’t even delayed.
>>>>163 can.dollars I us to pay for have a long space for my legs. Why? I have a sciatic nerv difficulties. What i use to received? A one ad hock sead bicause they ,,Lufthansa,, took a different playn. No money return No sorry They dont care NO MORE AUSTRALIAN AERLINE NO MORE LUFTHANSA NO MORE KAYAK A Kayak is catches peple at alower price and after asking you at airporte for 75 doll for a bagage
Food was garbage. Entertainment choices are very limited.
Never made it to Newark, I was redirected to Chicago, and lost another 5 hours
Lufthansa used to be one of the top international flights but it seems like this company is going downhill pretty fast. The need to renew their aircraft’s, costumer service needs needs to be improved and many other things
The company don’t care for customers.
Pros: "Inflight services"
Cons: "Delayed flight, missed connecting flight due to that. On the ground staff should have better coordinated from arrival to boarding of next flight. Chaotic and short staffed security personnel at Frankfurt airport. Overall a pathetic experience"
Cons: "Leg room was terrible in economy and food was poor from the USA"
Cons: "Every thing, from the crew attitude to the food to the entertainment and comfort."
Pros: "the flight was late in leaving, and although the lateness was not the airline's fault, the scramble of repeated announcements of Boarding is delayed for 10 minutes...3 or 4 times...was not smooth or comfortable...or very professional."
Cons: "the sound system on cut out of and on repeatedly, and shifted program and then would interrupt what was playing again and again, except when it would block the program out. aside from that, it was all pretty ok."
Pros: "The food was excellent, and the crew was nice"
Cons: "There was a delay on the boarding and they didn't provide a reason."
Cons: "Not wait five hours to cancel flight. United / Lufthansa was not truthful about reason for delay / cancellation."
Pros: "The crew was ok. The seating was comfortable as we had good leg room as we booked on a premium economy class."
Cons: "We requested for a chicken meal at dinner time but instead my husband and I was served the beef meal. I was very disappointed as firstly the way the beef was cooked tasted horrid. Secondly a mix up at the catering dept like labelling beef meal as chicken should never happen!"
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Top notch service and care."
Cons: "Lufthansa business class in the 747 is dated and not the most comfortable. No pods and privacy. Entraînement system at my seat was defective"
Pros: "Clean airplane, Nice seats. Very nice crew. Good connecting flight."
Cons: "Getting through security in Munich was a nightmare and I almost didn't make this flight. Luckily i had a friend that asked them to hold the plane but there seemed to be no communication that people from other flights were delayed getting to the gate. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Staff tried hard to serve food"
Cons: "Very stinky person sitting in front of me and because there is no air jets to regulate had to breath 9 hours of stinky armpits Stayed 20 min on the plane or more waiting until gate would open."
Pros: "Staff, very good."
Cons: "Space for sitting and functioning. Flight monitor not functioning."
Cons: "The TV sound didn’t work too well. Excellent staff Ms Maria Was very gracious."
Cons: "I have been transatlantic for forty years on various carriers. Without a doubt this was my worst flying experience ever."
Cons: "Miss the flight due to too short of transfer time. As a professional you guys should know better to have such tight transfer time. I want credit for my major inconvenience"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and attentive. Airplane had good amenities. On time and smooth takeoff and landing."
Pros: "Staff were nice and friendly."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. The seatback was not clean, and the tray table was stained. The 9-hour flight did not have any USB ports or outlets for charging. The touchscreen did not work well, and my seat would not move forward or back without me pushing or pulling it. This"
Cons: "Absolutely unprofessional. Zero courtesy’s & hospitality. Totally untrained ground staff. Will want to file a lawsuit against the airlines."
Pros: "Flew back last weekend in February. Transfer between plane from Barcelona in Frankfort (LH hub) to flight to Boston extremely chaotic. Masses of passengers all attempting to transfer to US bound flights. Insufficient staff from both Lufthansa and German border control to process or even organize the masses of people flying that day. Mob scene at transfer points. Not up to LH usual standards. Quite surprising as their passenger volume data should have alerted them to impending problems. Our flight was delayed over an hour for takeoff so USA bound connecting passengers (whose luggage was already on the planes) could be processed."
Cons: "Chaos and disorganization. Masses of connecting passengers unable to get to their flights anywhere near planned boarding time. Takeoffs delayed substantially."
Pros: "Upgraded seats from PHL to FRA, which was great. Had a lot of legroom. Very nice staff, comfortable flight"
Cons: "Very small legroom from Frankfurt to Budapest. When you are 5’11 it’s hard to fly . The prices i have to pay all the time to upgrade only because I am tall is out of control. It adds hundreds to my flight cost when the prices are already high."
Cons: "There were no Lufthansa representatives in Frankfurt airport upon my arrival. Also my connecting flight wasn't showing on electronic board. I had to get WiFi connection in order to get any info. I was very unhappy about it ."
Pros: "Overall good quality service as usual."
Cons: "The flight was 1 1/2 hours delayed, but that was due to weather in Europe..."
Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Crew was rude"
Pros: "All of it"
Pros: "service, care for my 85 pound dog and his kennel while traveling halfway across the globe! Thank you! Flight was smooth, services on board excellent."
Pros: "Food was good and that is all I can say was good about that flight"
Cons: "The male Stewart was very unprofessional by commenting out loud that I was too fat for the seat that I was assigned. The lights in the plane kept going off and on along with the video. I could not understand the pilots English. I was not allowed to get out of my seat as much as I wanted. I was very upset and disappointed on the male Stewart attitude."
Pros: "Service & food"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Convenient connections, fantastic airport, new aircraft with many large toilets in lower deck, super professional crew, really make a big difference when travelling 9 hours with 3 young kids."
Pros: "The staff on board had the same view on the "comfort" on board and told us, that even her husband tries to avoid Lufthansa if possible."
Cons: "Everything on board the economy class is on Ryanair level. It is nearly not possible for me (1,89 meters) to have a comfortable flight in these seats. We will try to avoid Lufthansa as often as possible in the future (I`ve had a senator level in earlier times and things changed massively!)"
Pros: "Boarding staff was cooperative On time departures and arrivals"
Cons: "Crew in Lufthansa are racist. Don't want to elaborate here but trust me for this. Bad quality food. They don't even have sufficient food for everyone. I didn't get two meals on one flight. Loo's are not maintained. Crew too rude. Had called a flight attendant for service but didn't show up until an hour (exactly an hour). Later I had to get up and take it. Can write an essay on my whole journey."
Pros: "Entertainment options were good and varied."
Cons: "We were significantly delayed on take-off, landing, and taxi to our gate, and the staff was very rude about the whole ordeal. One flight attended shouted at us over the intercom several times. I won't be flying Lufthansa again. The food was inedible and the seats were horrible."
Pros: "Movie selection Meal selection was good Crew was courteous, smiling, friendly"
Cons: "Space felt cramped (small)"
Pros: "Our first flight was late. We were met at the gate immediately after landing and were brought individually and directly to our next flight behind the scene, including passport control. Excellent."
Cons: "I had booked both flights at least 9 month in advance. Was not given a choice of seats for the short flight. In the past that has not been an issue. This time the four of us, including 2 children, were seated in the back of the plane separate from each other. Not cool."
Pros: "Geat customer service by flight attendants."
Cons: "Flight delay for over an hour with United"
Pros: "The fact is actually took off."
Cons: "Gate change at the exact time we were to board causing a 1:45 delay since our flight wasn't in the correct spot for the flight control deck to push our plane back. We made our connecting flight by about 8 minutes in Munich."
Pros: "premium economy was nice"
Pros: "The crew was very professional and kind."
Cons: "The layover in Frankfurt was too short (45 min) and the delay of the flight Milan- Frankfurt did not help; I had to run to catch my flight to NY. And in addition, my baggage went lost"
Pros: "Excellent crew support for traveling with a wheelchair."
Cons: "Food and entertainment."
Pros: "Separate lines for boarding"
Cons: "No transfer or ticket agents to be found to change/upgrade flight."
Cons: "Cuisine wasn't much in quality and the problem was exacerbated by industrial strike of BA Catering Services company in Lagos on the day in question. I experienced reduced quality, and I did not get value for what I payed for."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled."
Pros: "One of the crew used bad words toward one of the passenger ..!"
Cons: "I don’t like the configuration BA is using in Business class. The staggered seating with 50% rear facing makes griping in and out of seats"
Cons: "They never never never should have allowed those children on the plane. They knew it before take off and they looked the other way"
Cons: "Our BA flight from Vienna to London was 30 minuets delayed and we almost missed our connection. BA crews and captain never apologized or explained the reason. They didn’t bother to check and announce the gate of major connection flights like some other airlines would do. They just said “Check the departure information board when you arrive.” We made to our AA flight only it happened to be in the same terminal."
Cons: "We couldn’t get on the flight. We arrived late because of an earlier flight but were at the ticket area before this flight even started boarding. Our boarding passes would not print at our departure location and I wasn’t able to check in online for it because it kept linking to the American Airlines website for checkin. We tried to print our boarding passes at the kiosks but it said we needed to seek assistance. We were misdirected to the ticketing/rebooking line which we sat in and watched the board change to boarding and later gate closing. There were only two agents at the desk helping the completely full queue. We were told that our reservation was apparently already changed to a later flight for some reason. Being delayed seven hours is a great way to start a honeymoon off."
Cons: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELED"
Cons: "Late like always no even a free drink of water sad sad"
Pros: "Almost nothing on this flight."
Cons: "Boarded on time then 40 minute delay before take off. After we landed the plane came to a sudden stop and the Captain told us the lights to guide us to the appropriate place were not working this was a long delay. When we got to the disembarking area we had another long wait and the reason was due to the bridge not working,eventually we went out the back of the plane. The most unbelievable problem was the announcement just before take off that both rear toilets were out of action,since the flight was late this was an issue and I do not believe that both toilets could be broken more likely that there was no person available to clean them."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was laid back. Not much else to say about a 1 hour flight."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was quick and boarding was easy"
Pros: "We got nothing:-(!"
Pros: "That i had whole row to myself practically"
Cons: "Food. I had no gluten free breakfast practically. The lady accidently gave away my meal to someone else so they gave me the dinner i had missed. There was a problem with the jetties and so we couldnt get off plane it caused me to miss my connecting flight. Crew not helful in trying to get gate info of my connecting flight nor letting us know if our connecting flight could be held a few minutes to make sure we could get on it"
Pros: "Food good! Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food was great and plentiful! The crew were friendly and helpful. Seats were compact. But that’s usual for airlines. Plan extra time for customs...aaaaugh!!!! Two hours! I’ve never had to wait that long before."
Pros: "Very nice and comfortable"
Pros: "arrived on time"
Cons: "Coffee/tea was not free"
Cons: "Poor service from the customer service phone line. Pure waste of time. Couldn't help with simple questions about checking in...Sad"
Pros: "Nice plane and nice staff"
Cons: "No free water or coffee? Absurd."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, helpful and polite. The food was delicious and there was planty leg room. A great airline to fly with and I'd highly recommend them."
Cons: "Nothing, all was great."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the crew was amazing. Not only the pilot kept us informed but also the crew was outstanding, very helpful and hardworking."
Cons: "The entertainment system failed as soon as we departed. They reset it for the entire plane but it didn't work for some passengers. Fortunately, mine worked well but I would not have survived such a long flight without the entertainment offered, so I can only imagine how painful it was for those affected. I know this, in hindsight, is a silly problem, but when flying it's important to have options, especially for an 11-hour flight. The crew handled it fantastically, by the way."
Pros: "There was no food or entertainment - 1hr flight."
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Awful (typically BA) configuration im Club World on a 787 - cramped, inadequate storage, just lacking essential comfort for a supposed premium class. Food: seriously, I've had better in student cafes. Just stop it BA - its like some kind of prison food. Entertainment: meh. Small selection of new release movies. Crew: with the exception of one - just one from a complement of 15 odd - of the crew, the rest were a surly, inhospitable miserable bunch. If you hate your job don't take it out on customers - especially in a service industry."
Pros: "Surprised that the food was delicious"
Cons: "Obtaining the boarding pass at Heathrow took time"
Pros: "Food was actually quite good"
Cons: "Issues with online purchase of extra baggage"
Pros: "I did not use the entertainment. The crew was refreshingly professonial, helpful, and cheerful [in a British way]."
Cons: "I'm tall and the budget seat was 'tight'. But it was to be expecdted."
Pros: "Crew was polite, helpful."
Pros: "The empty seat next to us. Entertainment was good. The chocolate-orange pudding was terrific with coffee!"
Cons: "The uncontrolled screaming of a certain child on the flight. Unable to nap at all! Bad for an 11 hour flight."
Cons: "First class, great experience thank you kayak . I will use the website again next time"
Cons: "1) Tiny seats 2) Rude service in the airplane and rude customer service in the airport boot at British Airways 3) Lost my flight to JFK as the transfer took forever 4) Accommodation after the airline screwed up was little to nothing."
Pros: "Great staff. Helpful and friendly. I had a comfy seat on the aisle and the plane wasn't crowded so I had an empty seat between me and the next passenger. The food was good. The movie/TV options were fun. I was entertained the whole way to London."
Pros: "flight was relatively empty, and did not delay too much."
Cons: "No entertainment whatsoever. Meal is only a muffin or a cake of some sort. Waited way too long to disembark the plane."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, moderately intelligible announcements, passable food"
Cons: "In both directions, EDI—>JFK, our plane offered neither wi-fi (paid or free) nor seatback video screens, which is an awful lot of hours with no connection to anything. I didn't realize that any transatlantic airline still ran films on common screens, 1970s-style. Just how old were our planes?"
Cons: "Wheel chair assistance was very very bad. Airport crew made my parents to walk around 2 miles while changing the gates in London airport."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "A few peoples televisions, including my own, just stopped working midway through the flight. The crew didn't offer us much to drink (like they didn't walk around offering water enough). Also paid extra for seating which we did not get the seats I paid for pretty sure."
Cons: "You had cargo on the plane we were supposed to board that leaked and contaminated the plane's controls. 2 hour delay. The replacement plane was beat up, old, and quite shaky."
Pros: "flight attendants excellent...food was not good.but Fri is were great. Thank you"
Pros: "BA couldn't get our boarding passes to work no matter how many times they printed out new ones and we had to land into proper arrivals (though we were in transit in Heathrow) and tell five different groups of staff what was going on, even though it wasn't our problem but their computer glitch. One man at security was even rude to me, telling me not to just stand there. ( I had been told to stand there whilst they went and tried to remedy for the umpteenth time). When I showed him my disabled badge and said I would personally prefer NOT to be left standing for hours, he said 'so?'. It was a nightmare. It took hours and still wasn't sorted and in the end the immigration officers had to be called to the boarding area to allow us on the flight with non functioning boarding cards. It wasn't even our fault. REally upset about it."
Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived 10 minutes early."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 mins, but when I'm 2 mins late to check in the cancelled my boarding pass. Ridiculous customer service wanted to charge me $400 to change my flight!!! Never again"
Cons: "Very rough ride, made me sick"
Pros: "Pleasant and helpful crew;"
Pros: "Staff was very professional and courteous. No much waiting time for check in. Separate area for security clearance for British Airways passengers was very helpful and noteworthy."
Cons: "Carry on baggage at Mumbai Airport shown different dimensions than traveling from London. No proper communications for delayed flight and boarding was not organized. In flight food from Mumbai - London route was very much unsatisfactory."
Pros: "Many things including the seat space and less crowded flight"
Cons: "Cost. One way close to 2000 USD"
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: "The staff was friendly. The food was great. There was plenty of entertainment to choose from."
Pros: "Airplane used on the way back home trip (LHR-DFW). Much newer and clean and better seats confort"
Cons: "Airplane and crew on the trip from CUN to LGW. Looked old, crew was not very helpful and polite and food was well below average."
