Airline reviews

Pros: "Good movie selection on the touch screens"
Cons: "The new self scan at boarding took awhile for each time to read the phone or paper boarding pass. The crew, specifically the lady with big hair, was not in a good mood. Super narrow seats!"

Pros: "I paid $118 for an extra legroom seat (D26) which then turned into a pass through for passengers to cut across to the other side to use the lavatory. This happened throughout the flight, hence took away the comfort I paid for and needed on this long flight."
Cons: "The food. I mean who makes this stuff?"

Pros: "Landed safely."
Cons: "Missed connection. Delay do to Airline/human factors, not weather."

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The chairs are hard and no lumbar support"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane left an hour late - due to not enough water! American always has some excuse. On an overnight flight where people like to sleep, the pilot shouldn't be making an announcement one and 1/2 hours before landing, waking everyone up! Movie selection is very old."

Pros: "Got me to my destination"
Cons: "Attendants were less than welcoming with NO sense of humor. I found an empty whiskey container in the area under the seat in front of me. When I jokingly said that I found it empty and could she refill it for me, the attendant went off on me, telling me that she was too busy and couldn’t take it"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was canceled"

Cons: "Cabin crew was good not great - expected more in flagship"

Pros: "That I finally reached my destination."
Cons: "I & all passengers would have received accurate, timely information related to the 4 hour delay"

Pros: "On time, super help , confortable"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Disgusting Food. Extremely uncomfortable seats: unable to recline far enough, my knees on back of seat in front of me, unable to sleep at all the entire trip. This was American Airlines, not British Airways. Cheap headphones kept falling out of line in port. TERRIBLE FLIGHT, Never Again!"

Pros: "Flight attendant was great, plane was comfortable and clean"
Cons: "No WiFi, it was delayed, bags came off a different belt so we didn’t find them for 30 minutes... but at least we found them"

Pros: "video choices"
Cons: "seat width leg space aisle are way too narrow"

Pros: "We boarded early because of the security check, but that worked out fine. The food was good and the flight attendants were attentive."
Cons: "Spending 10 hours on a flight, but you can't do anything about that."

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Isles for walking are way too small! I mean you can’t walk normally. I am 5’11” 195 lbs. not big but I have to move sideways down the isle. This is a very dangerous situation in a emergency situation. Something needs to be done. The seat space between the seats is another story"

Pros: "Mostly really friendly crew members. Plane seemed new, first and business class looked lovely."
Cons: "Wihout question, the most uncomfortable seat ive ever been in. It was obviously a newer plane, long haul flight, and thw configuration maximized space for more passengers. Width of economy seat was tightest I've ever experienced, with the arms of the seats literally right at my legs, nearlt digging in. The leg room was very short with my knees nearly touching the back of the seat in front of me. When i put my tray down, it actually rested on my knees, and was not level because it pitched up due to longer legs (and I'm only 5'9). This was a long haul, 8 hour flight. I've never beeñ so uncomfortable on a flight in my life, and have never counted the minutes I could get out. Seemed obvuous that meal service had taken a hit when corporate looked for places to cut expenses, its one of the lower quality meals. If compared with an international carrier, the food was really sub par. Mostly really friendly crew members, unfortunately, one who really didnt seem to enjoy the job any longer."

Pros: "Attentive and caring flight crew. Speedy and efficient boarding."
Cons: "Food was not that great. Entertainment Monitor kept freezing which was a bit annoying."

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: "Flight did not take place because of cancelled return flight. the whole itinerary was cancelled."
Cons: "because of cancelled flight I had to schedule a new itinerary directly through American Airlines. The cost increased from $947.50 to $1,873 plus airport parking for 17 days."

Pros: "Everything went as expected. Overall a smooth flight and friendly service."
Cons: "Well, it's never comfortable to try to sleep in economy class, right? But I knew that going in, and that's what I chose."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Although an email was received 3 hours before departure that everything was on schedule, we were told when checking in our whole itinerary had been changed to leave the next day. We had not been contacted and we missed our daughter’s professional basketball game in France. This was the reason we bought the tickets from Kayak to begin with. The cancellations were happening with British Airlines and they were not working with American Airlines to help us out to get to the game on time."

Pros: "Staff was fantastic"

Pros: "Crew and other personnel"
Cons: "I was not able to select a seat 24 hours before flight"

Cons: "The set I paid for I didn't get that and service was not good at all"

Pros: "Comfort of leg room on BA and AA operated flights, was better then virgin atlantic which I usually take."
Cons: "Movie selection was old, not as good as virgin atlantic airlines"

Cons: "Plane kept circling Laguadia and turbulence made everyone nervous"

Cons: "The seats were not as good as the ones on my BA flight to Heathrow and then Rome."

Pros: "That it was over night"

Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Food was not good at all."

Pros: "Fast service, wonderful crew"
Cons: "Our seats couldn't recline. It was such a long flight and sleep was difficult in a sitting position."

Pros: "The actual crew on the plane were great"
Cons: "On my trip to Atlanta from new York the gate staff were horrible. Nasty attitudes and forced me to check in a bag that is made and approved by airlines to be considered a carry-on making me miss my 6 am flight to then book me on a 930am flight that was delayed for about an hour. I've never experienced this with any other airline before. Very disappointed"

Pros: "Wide selection of movies and other entertainment."
Cons: "This was not food that was served in the Economy class. This was pure junk. I understand that airlines are saving on the service in Economy but a minimal quality should be maintained. I recommend to prepare some sandwich etc. and other snacks and to take it on the plane."

Pros: "I loved not having to change planes."
Cons: "It was VERY cold on the plane."

Cons: "Missed the flight due to accident on the road. AA was more than helpful in trying to reroute me BUT British Air did not want to cooperate so my trip is now cancelled. This is my 3rd dealings with British Air and they are THE WORST! I will never buy British Air tickets again. Being less than satisfied for the 3rd time is enough to lose my business forever."

Cons: "Horrible service and was never notified so I was not able to make either of these flights."

Pros: "Complimentary cocktail! Great selection of entertainment on our own personal screen."
Cons: "Boarding agent was abrupt"

Cons: "Need a better chess program"

Cons: "Most disorganized boarding ever seen. cabin crew disengaged. food average."

Pros: "Food and crew were excellent. In flight entertainment vast."
Cons: "Seats were terribly uncomfortable. I was sandwiched between two men in an aisle seat of 4 and our arms were bumping into each other the whole time because the seats were smaller than the people. It was the most back and lower lumbar discomfort I've had."

Cons: "Crew were consistently overlooking us in the middle section."

Pros: "The food and drinks were great. Flight left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "This flight was actually on an American 777. One of the older models. For an almost 9+ hour flight, the in-seat entertainment systems need to be upgraded. The seats did not have USB charging capabilities, the selection of movies at the seat consisted of about 8 choices, and the screen size wasn't much larger than that of an iPhone 6 Plus. This was supposed to be a British Airlines flight, but it really was an American flight. I expected to be on a BA aircraft, which would have probably been upgraded."

Cons: "Never got to board that plane due to delay of my previous flight."

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: "The flight movies and entertainment were down the whole flights but only for our seats. Which on an international flight was the pits."

Pros: "New plane"

Cons: "This flight was operated by American, but sold by Iberia and ticketed by airfare.com. When I tried to reserve a special meal, each party (American, Iberia & airfare.com) said they could not do it, that the other party had to do it. So, in other words, no company took responsibility for my customer satisfaction. So I am ultimately blaming American Airlines accountable since they, not Iberia or airfare.com, contracted with the food service provider at the airport."

Pros: "The touchscreen was pretty awesome"
Cons: "Loud passengers"

Cons: "The first leg was cancelled and no one maee me aware of this and no additioaal flights were placed for this leg of the flight.. Kayak said it is British Airways fault and of course BA stated it was Kayak's fault. I donkt think i will be using Kayak anymore, becuase of the way this matter was dealt. I am also planning to contact bebber businness bureau for this as well."

Pros: "I like how they kept us updated on when the flight would leave"
Cons: "I didn't like that it took so long for us to actually get on the plane. My flight was supposed to leave around 4pm but it didn't actually leave till around 9pm so I had to sleep overnight when we landed in Dallas"

Cons: "Terrible boarding process, awful food, rude staff...literally one of the worst flights ever"

Cons: "The cabin was cooler than expected. A water bottle would have been helpful to ensure hydrated during the flight when canon lights turned out."

Pros: "Excellent crew excellent a young small brunette was not very friendly or accommodating. Otherwise the whole crew would have gotten 5 starts. Everything else was wonderful!"

Cons: "Get Russian language selection in entertainment"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather"

Pros: "The crew were very welcoming and took care of passengers very well"
Cons: "Not sure as I really liked this flight leg"

Pros: "Wifi is expensive but at least it was available."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."

Pros: "This is really a United Flight, not a Lufthansa light."
Cons: "Scheduling 4 hours late at takeoff. Missed connections, Car rental ends up being cancelled."

Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "The delays"

Cons: "My wife and I traveled with bicycles packed in standard boxes and got hit with a whopping $230 charge per bicycle out of the blue. We were expecting no charge because the bicycles were our only check-in baggage for the trip. Couldn't believe the lack of transparency with which we got hit with this charge. Qantas, Air New Zealand, and other airlines we've taken bikes with us on our flights have charged nothing when we traveled in the same fashion. So, if you are a bicyclist traveling with your bicycle, I'd avoid the United-Lufthansa duo."

Cons: "My flight was delayed on several occasions. It was awful. Then I missed my connection. Very unsympathetic and the staff did nothing to help me make my connection. They just said oh well, you can catch the next flight so I missed my son’s soccer game that he was so hoping I would see."

Pros: "The crew...they were extra nice...keep it up !"
Cons: "I was booked to fly on a lufthansa...but ended up flying United. Paid $ 288 and upgraded to Economy Plus...I thing it was not worth the money. Next time I will travel First Class or Business, either on Delta or Lufthansa"

Pros: "The flight attendants, service and comfort were very good."
Cons: "Because of plane maintenance the flight was 4 hours late. I stood in line for two hours to get my flight changed since I missed my connection in Frankfort, and never got it changed. I got to Frankfort and stood in 3 more lines to get on standby. I’m hoping to get to Naples before the last ferry to Capri in order to make my sister’s wedding."

Pros: "Simple fantastic"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "there was a seven hour delay to our departure Food was pretty bad, entertainment system was broken"

Pros: "Entertainment in United flight from San Francisco was top rated."
Cons: "The charging stations we're not working all through the flight."

Pros: "Entertainment system good. Nice new aircraft 777-300 ER. On-time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "Vegetarian food choices very limited."

Pros: "All on the flight went smoothly."
Cons: "I booked with United, so the check in was at their counter. I had extra luggage and thanks to incometebt staff i had to go through three different queues, ended up paying 300 usd and i was treated far from kindly. Not an exoerience i wish to repeat"

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Crew were very nice and helpful"
Cons: "No personal tv screens, must have an app on your phone/tablet. Problem is, once you find that out it's too late since you'd have to pay to download it."

Cons: "My poor experiance came before i čvor on the plane. I happen to miss my connecting flight by five minute and everyone one at different station at Lufthansa was rude and kept šire ing me to other people where i found more ruše people. The flight itself was phone"

Cons: "No help, and after hold of 45 min, representative hang up on me. I lost a ticket because of very bad customer service!"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "We were forced to deplane in DC and instructed to go to the United customer service counter to arrange our missed connections in Frankfurt. After standing in line at the United counter for 2 hours, we were told to go to our gate to re-board our plane. we wasted all that time standing and all but 2 agents had left the counter to take a break. it was EXTREMELY STRESSFUL not knowing what would happen to our missed connections. when we reboarded WE still did not have connecting flights.Also, on the United flight to Frankfurt, I had a premium economy seat and it was HORRIFIC. the extra leg room did NOT make the seat more comfortable and I SUFFERED greatly because I am recovering from an injury. Upon arrival in Frankfurt, after a great deal of begging, I got a hotel room for the night and upgrad to economy premium for the flight from Frankfurt to Addis. that Lufthana flight was better because my seat reclined somewhat but still I had a great deal of pain throughout the flight and I would have preferred to have been upgraded to business so that I could lay flat to ease my physical pain. Overall, the experience was extremely STRESSFUL and painful and the only way, I feel that Lufthana can repair this situation is to give me a free upgrade to business on my flight home.to Miami"

Pros: "An old 777 , dirty and the food was horrible."

Pros: "boarding, entertainment, bulkhead seat (extra legroom)"
Cons: "narrow seat"

Pros: "I lie the variety of movies available."
Cons: "Nothing to not like. Flight landed earlier than scheduled."

Pros: "Food during a 2-hour flight compared to what United provided in a 7 or 8 hour flight"

Cons: "Better service"

Cons: "Flight from Newark under United was not pleasant!"

Pros: "The flight left on time"
Cons: "Baggage fees were very high for an extra bag. Service on the flight was overall ok. Boarding was slow and a little annoying. Gate agents were rude"

Pros: "Lufthansa fueron súper amables. Todo bien agradable. Buena comida."

Pros: "priority boarding; screen size of monitor"
Cons: "seat width (too narrow)"

Pros: "Earlier than scheduled. Enough space."

Pros: "Noting"
Cons: "Bought the ticket from Lufthansa but the operator was United. Although it was known by the operator that there is a delay already at check-in, passengers where notified only at the gate. Delay was so long that most passengers would miss their connection. After standing an hour in line at the gate to book alternate connection, counter was closed and we were directed to another 10 min walk away. After another 1.5 hours without reaching a representative we had to rush back to the gate to board. In Frankfurt had to stay in standby for the next alternative flight. Luggage was delayed in the US for 2 more days."

Pros: "I liked the Lufthansa flights using Airbus Aircraft the entertainment system is the best."
Cons: "The entertainment system on the boeing planes is not necessarily the best, the screens are smaller, the selection of movies is not upto date and even Live TV does not work"

Pros: "The crew was very polite."
Cons: "The tvs didn't show the movies properly the sound and screens would stop, and skip ahead. Impossible to watch or understand."

Pros: "The communication was great. The taking off and landing was great"
Cons: "The food was mediocre and I was not given a choice. They ran out of chicken and the only food they had left was pork that seemed like can food. Breakfast was dry croissant with yogurts."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "-It said you can watch the movie using your personal device using WIFI; 99% the WIFI will drop or not working at all."

Cons: "I have a very strong advice to United: do not take off late! Period! Another one: people who bought their tickets together want to sit together. And ,yes this is YOUR responsibility, and not the customer. Remember this and your company may survive."

Cons: "The 777-200 is geting old"

Pros: "Two out of three pieces of luggage lost. You fall out of love after that. No matter what they do."

Cons: "The flight was run by United with an older aircraft The chairs were very small and didn't have entertainment tv. The food was okay."

Cons: "The flight was operated by United, but there was no clear indication that it was so and so checking in at the Lufthansa desk was pointless. Seats are extremely tight and the entertainment system is outdated."

Pros: "Very little to like"
Cons: "First : I bought Lufthansa tickets but was flown w United. Rude staff terrible food and unbearable seating no tv monitors per seat. I travel to Europe 4 time a year... This was without question the worse"

Cons: "-Was a United flight despite being billed as Lufthansa, I always try and avoid United as I have had bad experiences in the past. -Was unable to choose seats online. -Upon check in was told that only middle seats were available for my partner and I away from each other even though we showed up 6 hours early in order to get good seats as we couldn't check in online. -We then paid extra to get seats next to each other (250 bucks) and the entertainment systems in those seats were broken. -When we told the flight attendant staff they said there was nothing they could do and were rude. -When trying to explain the situation to United Customer service they were also rude."

Pros: "Check-in was fast and easy!!"
Cons: "Old planes, poor food, terrible entertainment options. The whole experience is mush less rewarding than other airlines."
