Airline reviews

Cons: "Boarding"

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor customer service, was booked off twice without being informed."

Pros: "Easy boarding and nice crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "DTW to FRA leg was direct, customs arriva was quick, select male staff on both legs of flight friendly."
Cons: "Numerous instances of curt or rude airline personnel throughout trip. On the plane, stewardesses made it clear that they were not interested in providing drink or bassinet help as they had ‘paper work requirements’ or other more important things to do. Very shocking for business class tickets."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The proximity of the arriving and departing gates"

Pros: "Overall"
Cons: "Nothing to add?"

Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was on time. Overall excellent experience."
Cons: "On line check-in 23 hrs prior to departure is not convenient for out of town passengers travelling to B'luru to catch the flight, couldn't get internet access to do the check -in on time. 48 to 72 hr check-in window would be better."

Pros: "Efficiency"
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "They made me weigh my carry on, but virtually no one else, despite the fact that my bag was the same size as most and smaller that others! I honestly felt like one of the gate agents were picking on me."

Cons: "Crew was not very friendly, the lack of customer service is evident."

Cons: "It was a horrible experience. I was trying to check in a few hours before my flight, and my reservation just vanished. I was on the phone with VAYAMA twice, and both times they were extremely unhelpful and one of the times just very very rude! I will not be booking with Kayak again."

Pros: "Smooth flight. Fairly good meals. Friendly crew."

Pros: "The crew here was Much, much friendlier! They were smiling, joking, and happy. The stewardess even directed me to a free isle seat so I wouldn't have to sit in the middle where it was a bit more cramped. I wish my first experience with Lufthansa; they could have had a loyal customer since I will ve flying to Bulgaria 2 times a year in the next 6 years."
Cons: "The bus to get to the plane was very cramped."

Pros: "It’s always a pleasure, easy and organized to fly with you. I have been using Lufthansa for the last 3 years, every time I must fly because of the quality of service and of its crew."

Pros: "It was a great airline! I flew economy but still was very comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't have a long enough layover in Chicago and ended up missing my next flight. At least an hour and a half should be allotted going through customs in O'Hare. Then an additional 2 hours to recheck bags and get across the airport. This also allows extra time for delays."

Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. My seat was near the front of the plane but the crew directed me to enter at the back of the plane. There were people entering from both the front and the back, meaning people were stuck trying to get past each other in the tight aisle. It was difficult to find space in the overhead compartments for carryon luggage due to people bringing too much stuff - the crew should have stepped in and helped. The food was a bad chicken sandwich with condiments that I could not eat."

Cons: "Very bad food"

Cons: "Flight was delayed. There was not enough space for my carry-on luggage so they had to take it in the front."

Pros: "frequent passing out of water and juice; very good dinner; cheerful hostesses; choice of video entertainment"

Pros: "Beautiful clean aircraft . Superb crew."

Pros: "Everything was fine even though the plane was late,"

Cons: "They Changed the terminal last minute and i miss the flight ! horrible experience i needed to pay new tickets 300$ ! i will never going to book or recommend to anyone to fly with your company.."

Cons: "The chicken was too spicy & hot for general public. You should take lessons from Swiss Air... food was delicious!"

Cons: "No problems average flight slight delays."

Cons: "We had reserved our seats ahead of time but as we were boarding we were told that instead of sitting on row 4, we should seat at a row at the back of the plane. We were not notified ahead of time or or given an option. Flight attendants were refusing to help passengers and were actually rude to people who needed help to find a place for their luggage. Honestly, I didn’t expect this from Lufthansa and am very disappointed."

Cons: "no screen for movies getting all aboard without dividing into sitting numbers."

Cons: "All good."

Pros: "They were nice"
Cons: "They were good"

Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The boarding process is very efficient."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s people are mostly good. But there are some obvious opportunities for people to be more friendly. Also, LH like many others continues to serve cold rolls and cold butter on international flights. KLM warms the rolls! It’s the one small touch that would make Lufthansa’s meal service so much nicer."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delay for 45 minutes; unfortunately, it's becoming a trend at Lufthansa"

Pros: "United was operating the flight. They asked for 200 to assign me seat next to the path. I found out in the plane after i got to my middle seat that they gave a good front seat close to the path to somebody who was stand by..... They also stated that they can not check my nags to Sofia since they DO NOT FLY TO SOFIA..."

Pros: "The crew was very polite!"
Cons: "It felt really tight."

Pros: "Didn't try the food."
Cons: "Nothing out of the ordinary regarding the flight itself. The gate was changed twice, which was inconvenient. Not much leg room or no adjustable pillows on the seats."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and provided constant updates while the flight was delayed multiple times."
Cons: "It is not a good idea to serve dinner at 1am in the evening when people are falling asleep. It would have been a better idea to serve lunch vs dinner"

Cons: "bad business class experience, requested assistance 2 but only one came that alsoafter so much hassel will never travel or recommend"

Pros: "Food and overall service"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "everything on time on the right place with the right numbers ... perfect ;)"
Cons: "seats on LH435 from ORD to MUC too small and tight"

Pros: "I appreciated the advance boarding for families traveling with younger children. Plenty of time to settle in with the kiddos."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No food/snacks after a long first flight. At first it looked like we were in first class, then they decided to move it a few rows up after everyone was seated."

Cons: "It was a problem with one passenger, she came from another row and take two seats close to me and my daughter, she wanted to fly with comfort, so I told her it is not nice, this is not her seats and I have a kid with me and she should share wirh another people too, butshe was freeked out because I did a comment, than she asked me what country I'm from and I told: Russia. So she told me she could see why I so unclever...all Russian the same and laughing on me. I didn't expect so racist behavior and I stopped any conversation and complained to flight attendant. And I was double surprise! She went to her talked with her and than tell me that she could take any place she wants and she never told me any racist words, and maybe I'm a lier. I was so upset and I told a passenger that I can go to court when get back to US, she was really scared now and start sorry! But it was to late to sorry! When I asked flight attendant to sorry, she told she do not sorry!!! The flight was Monday October 3rd 2016 Lufthansa 459 San Francisco -Munich, name of flight attendant Eva-Katherine Pfaffel, the passenger seat 44 Diana or E I think, they didn't provide me information about name or her seat. The flight attendant told me it is not big dealing, maybe for Germany it is ok, but in US it is really rude, original I'm from Russia, my daughter too, additionally she is black, it will be really good if I never feel this again, I was in really helpless situation. It is really unpleasant when you spend money and get neglect."

Pros: "Everything was exceptional. The crew provided excellent service, the aircraft was modern. Boarding was painless. Food was the good, all things considered."

Cons: "The quality of food was pitiful, not to say gross, in the economy class. I'm comparing Lufthansa to other European airlines and to what Lufthansa used to be. Alcohol was of the most basic quality. Yes, I know, it was economy class, but it's gone down. Entertainment was hardly better. No new movies and the variety of what was available was poor. Lastly, the choice of seats in the tail (of 747-8) was poor judgment on my part. We were being wagged like fleas on the dog's tail. The only good part was that due to the narrowing of the plane we had two seats and no neighbor to jump over, plus extra room between the window seat and the window. The end of highlights. Can't help but compare every airline to Turkish airlines, where even in the economy class they make you feel like royalty. These people know how to do hospitality and make you want to come to their country."

Cons: "Customer service and seats/rows extra small"

Cons: "seats were old and uncofmortable. i asked for coffee which they totally forgot to bring me and the crew was just generally mean and very dismissive. no food at all - could have served a breakfast sandwich or something no entertainment or charging docks. ."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above."

Cons: "A disaster but was able to arrive 5 hours later to my destination. Better than a day late."

Cons: "To arrive on time"

Cons: "Buses to and from the plane. One driver left us in a full bus waiting for 20 minutes. When we arrived in Vienna, there was no bus to pick us up. We had to wait in the plane until one showed up."

Pros: "Crew, seat"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Organisation"
Cons: "Short flight but not quite comfortable seats."

Pros: "Good"

Cons: "Free wifi"

Cons: "Hand luggage not allowed onboard due to being just a bit oversized -- just its wheels only. Never had this problem with the same luggage with other airlines, only with Austrian."

Cons: "Food terrible"

Pros: "The crew and the service was excellent. Dinner was excellent. The hot breakfast never came. We were served a roll and one small cup of coffee with no refills. That was my only complaint. On a long overseas flight I think a hot breakfast would have been better than a roll."

Cons: "They were delayed on every one of my flights - missed connecting flight and had to be booked on a new flight which got in a midnight. Terrible!!"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled on the first day. I had to call to find out that I was rebooked on a flight the next day."

Pros: "There was nothing to like. Horible experience will never fligh with Austrian Air again"
Cons: "The flight was long delayed, there was no explanation or any sort of pasenger notification about the delay. When I boarded the overhead luggage was full could not find space to secure my bags. The flight attendant was very rude did not assist me and made me wait. Other people traveling without luggage pushed me to pass by. I was told not very nice things. The flight was overbooked and overall horible experience."

Pros: "There werecseats available at gate area to wabit for plane."
Cons: "Airport overcrowded, checkin at Austrian Airlines horrible - one agent quoated 117 Euro for oversize suitcase when fee was actually 50 Euro. (Note: same suitcase accepted by Lufthansa without extra charge. Security check also excessive and bureaucratic without giving sense of better safety."

Pros: "Great staff, good meals, snacks, and drinks thru the entire flight. Good movie selections."

Pros: "the flight missed my connection and they were AWESOME in handling it, getting me on a Swiss Air flight. That flight also missed its connection and Swiss Air took great care to put me up in a hotel. They made a frustrating situation so much smoother!"

Cons: "There was no entertainment at all. No movies, no music, absolutely nothing. If i could have rated it with no stars i would have."

Cons: "I tried to reschedule due to a death in the family and due to the "small print" this was not possible. Then when I did travel, it turned out I didn't have the right for a piece luggage (again "small print"). I paid for the extra piece and I was double-charged (same amount withdrawn twice). Now I have opened a complained with Austrian and they haven't responded so far."

Pros: "Friendly staff, efficient"
Cons: "I didn’t understand that we got no baggage allowance with our tickets. When I looked on the website it appeared that star alliance members got the usual free luggage. Apparently it was a “lit” fare & we didn’t. It would have been worth it to get the next class of fare"

Pros: "clean airplane. staff friendly and helpful. good movie selection"
Cons: "austrian and lufthansa have the worst seats in the industry. good for seating for about 30 minutes ONLY. so tough that make the trip feel even longer. a charger is needed in economy (at least one every two seats). wifi has not made it to this long haul flight yet."

Cons: "The airplane came late, delaying our trip. Despite that, the luggage would not come, and the claims office was ridiculous (despite of the destination being within 1 hour of drive from the airport, it took us 24 hours of our short vacation trip to deal with luggage). It seems that LH has these problems regularly, and they don't seem to care; I guess we'll have to try someone else to avoid suffering the same problem every time. The employees already knew the luggages are in a mess, and so were the claims. When taking LH, we have to accommodate luggage delay into our planning."

Pros: "Everything was at the good level. Professional people to work with."
Cons: "Not enough room for overhead bags. Had to put mine in the front of the plane while I sat at the back of the plane. What I really didn't like is that I called Kayak to include my Global Entry number on my boarding pass. They said it would be there and when I printed it, it wasn't. So coming back into the states and thru customs took waaay longer than it should have with those chaotic and ridiculously long lines. I didn't bring my Global Pass card with me and will from now on!"

Pros: "The economy seats had as much leg room as the Premium Economy seats on Luthansa, so the comfort over a long flight was better than I expected."
Cons: "The charge for checking a 2nd bag was $100 which I thought was much too high. Food was average and not enough given that we were on the plane for over 10 hours."

Pros: "The flight in General. Small space with a large audience make things smaller. It's not a flight where one can relax. Grueling."
Cons: "Breakfast was just a sandwich and yogurt. Is this standard Austrian Breakfast?"

Pros: "You guys have. Very professional crew !!"
Cons: "The customer service In Europe wasn’t helping out at all"

Pros: "Speaking of friendly sky. Great!"

Pros: "Great experience, friendly crew!"

Pros: "Free drinks."

Cons: "Long transit more than 12H without free accommodation nor meals"

Cons: "The aircraft was very old and smelled badly. The toillets didn't work properly and were dirty."

Pros: "Drinks were included"
Cons: "No entertainment available not even to pay for. Wifi is overpriced"

Pros: "The aircraft was very clean. Very friendly crew."

Pros: "Great floght"

Pros: "My waffle and coffee"
Cons: "Very small seats with hardly any legroom. Flight delayed 2 hours. Nasty attendant told me my bag was too big for overhead compartment. It wasn't."

Pros: "The seats on Austrian airline are very comfortable"
Cons: "Lufthansa lost my luggage for the first two days of my trip. It really hindered my ability to enjoy my first couple days of a fairly short trip to a new country"

Pros: "The plane was comfortable even in economy. The crew were helpful and professional. Good food."
Cons: "We were boarded and then told we had to sit on the plane for 45 minutes before take off. It's possible this way beyond the crew's control, but still would've been better to wait in the airport. Also, the movie selection was smallish compared to some other airlines."

Pros: "Seats, crew, nice plane"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Random boarding,"

Pros: "They lost my baggage and nobody cares.They charging good money for extra bags but they have only sorry for they mistake. If you plan your important trip to Europe please don't use this company,so you can avoid unpleasant experience."

Pros: "The service was good, everyone from the staff extremely friendly and overall the flight was very quick."

Pros: "Very nice and polite crew, great service."
Cons: "Regular breakfast was just a muffin and nothing else :("

Cons: "The ground crew harassed us for bringing our instruments on board. We fly with instruments for our work and this was the first time we were forced to check certain items and were detained for a period of time so that the ground crew could check with their superiors."

Pros: "that everything was in order - alles in ordnung, without much fuss. short flight, no time to get dissapointments, but I did not expect some anyway."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours after boarding"

Pros: "The crew was nice and the entertainment was okay."
Cons: "It was impossible to make a seat reservation--impossible. When I asked Air Canada they said contact Austrian Airlines. When I asked them they said get in touch with United. Then I was told I could book a seat 24 hours in advance. When I got email I couldn't--said I had to do it at the gate. When I got to the gate I was told I had a seat in the middle of the plane. Not true I was at the back of the plane. Just awful"

Pros: "Plane was on time, boarding was fast and easy, great crew"
Cons: "Food was terrible"

Pros: "Clean aircraft, nice crew, efficient boarding, small airport (Varna)"

Pros: "Never again with KAYAK. Sorry."

Cons: "Flight from Dulles to Vienna was cancelled in the morning on the day of departure. We contacted Austrian and rebooked with Air France. The Air France flights were good overall. The food was okay, entertainment excellent, comfort good, boarding good, crew okay. On flight to Paris, the crew did not serve water during the period between dinner and the service before landing."

Cons: "My row was bypassed a couple of times for food/beverage service even though we were wide awake and looking expectantly at the flight attendant. Sometimes she asked me if I wanted a drink or something and as I was answering she looked away and moved on. I couldn't believe it. Then after pressing the service button and waiting a long time for her to return, she acted like it was a huge inconvenience."

Cons: "you pay austrian but flights are operated by diff. companies regularly delayed or cancelled flights eg. last one - 3hours delay no info provided no info ahead any question?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "To add food and to patk the plane at the linkway"

Pros: "It was a direct flight to my destination"
Cons: "Check-in took 1 hour and 30 mins. Single Check in desk for economy and business, long line. Flight went late by 50 mins on departure"

Cons: "Too little leg room"

Pros: "fast trip, clean plane"
Cons: "Was a bit different to get on a bus to take you to the actual plane"

Cons: "..."

Pros: "Nothing. Bulgarian Airlines is a fifth world company!"
Cons: "Everything! The flight from Sofia (after flying in a plane that looked like a bus from the 80s), was late over two hours. Bulgarian airlines lied to us in Sofia that we would be rerouted on other airlines and find out our new tickets only at transfer desks in milan. There were NO transfer desks"

Cons: "Flight was two hour delayed and I missed my connection"

Pros: "The chocolate was great!"
Cons: "This airline and airport is from two centuries ago. Seats were super crammed and we waited in the heat NEXT to the plane to board for good 10min"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The flight was delayed with over an hour. No apologies were offered. I was not even offered a drink until I asked (and I was in business class)."

Cons: "There was delay of 2 hours with any notice."

Pros: "They didn't cram us into the transport vehicle like sardines"
Cons: "We need special assistance for my wife boarding the plane and didn't get it from Airline"

Pros: "Great polite and pleasant crew."
Cons: "Seating very tight. Knees hitting seat in front. Boarded from 2 entries. Chaotic."

Cons: "I get my luggage two days later."

Pros: "food was ok"
Cons: "not polite. no leg space at all compared to other airlines and worst of all they made me put my only backpack under the seat and be uncomfortable, where most people have 2 carry-ons large size and no one told them to check the bag for free so that there will be space on the overhead compartment"

Cons: "My bag did not arrive. Was not transferred from Amsterdam."

Pros: "Very good price and all went smoothly and on time."
Cons: "Having to walk to and from the plane and use a bus (no jetways).."

Cons: "My luggage was lost."

Cons: "My luggage is lost."

Cons: "Missed the flight and company didnt returned the money according to insurance."

Cons: "Too small place for legs in the cabin for such a long flight. Very uncomfortable"

Pros: "We were just 10-15 people on the plane and everyone has its own row of seats. A nice sandwich + soft drink/wine + coffee/tea was provided quickly after take off. Then the lights were dimmed so the people could rеst for few hours till landing. Nice prompt service."
Cons: "Uncomfortable weared off seats and no entertainment system."

Pros: "The sandwich looked dry, but was actually very good."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. They are like benches. For 2-3 hours it’s OK, but could be improved."

Cons: "I dident get my luggage"

Cons: "Poor food no entertainment"

Cons: "Flight has delay of 50min - technical problem. I missed other my flights Bulgaria air booked a new reservation and I had to wait 6h on Berlin airport."

Pros: "Once on board we flu fast"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 2 hours and no information was given at all."

Cons: "Flight was delayed two and half hours and then stupid excusing."

Pros: "Horrible. Don't book with this ariline."
Cons: "Although we were checked in, the flight was oversold and prior to boarding at the gate, they told us we can't board the flight. Our luggage had to be also taken off the flight and we were not given a flight till the next day. As a result we missed our connections, had to book an additional hotel last minute. Bulgaria Air had no even a customer service desk at the airport!!!!"

Pros: "It was an excellent flight experience."
Cons: "Improve the sandwich?"

Pros: "The flight got me to my destination safely and on time"
Cons: "Security and lack of snacks/drinks on the flight"

Pros: "Got me to my destination safely and on time"

Cons: "No one told me why or how long the flight would be delayed. I got at the airport at 9am for a 12:45pm flight, the plane didn't take off till 9:30pm. Air Bulgaria didn't update Barcelona Airport so everyone had to assume the flight could take off any minute and spend a long day at the gate. Avoid Bulgaria Air."

Pros: "The crew was friendly, the plane was cool."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. They offered a complimentary snack and had an on time flight. Would fly again."
Cons: "The airline didn't offer online check in from out flight from Athens to Sofia, but that seemed to be because of travel outside of the schengen zone."

Pros: "They were on time, free drink and foot no chargebo"
Cons: "No movie screen"

Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The check in started late, the gate was changed, the flight was late by more than an hour."

Cons: "Overall cleanliness of the cabin was very poor."

Pros: "We wish companies who share would advertise who they are partners with & that the other companies have your information when using their airline. We finally found the representative to Air Belin to check us in at the Frankfurt Airport to find out we will be flying with Balkan Airline at another terminal. The same thing happened on the way back. Luckily we arrived at the airport early both times to make sure we were flying. But getting information from one airline to another is hard when your booking # & flight number is different for each airline, & when you call the airline they tell you to go to the airport as they cannot help you over the phone. The flight was find but to board is another."

Cons: "Crew was not sympathetic towards mom with baby. No help with stroller. Airport agent decided to add stroller as checked luggage causing confusion and distress during short connection window to next flight."

Pros: "- on time (even earlier) - fast and convenient boarding - nice and friendly staff"

Pros: "On time and nice crew"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Friendly service."

Pros: "Check in was very fast and easy, crew was very nice and helpful"

Pros: "They serve you a dandwich and water."
Cons: "The boarding was a mess, because they decided to consolidate the passengers of two planes, so most of the seats were double booked and they were struggling to find seats. The flight was delayed with one hour because they were looking for lost passengers. Complete mess!"

Pros: "The crew are friendly and professional, I was greeted and given instructions when I missed a connecting flight due to mechanical issues with the first flight. I was given new boarding ticket for the next day's flight along with vouchers for the hotel and meals. The hotel was inside the airport and had a late check out and I was able to keep my carry on luggage in the room for most of the day."
Cons: "Turned the face value for the meal vouchers were way to low and was not enough to cover a very basic meal therefore I had to cover the difference."

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Aircraft comfortable. Good value fare"
Cons: "Plane was boarding but in the pre-security area the monitors said check in while inside the buses were loading to take passengers to the plane. It was a case of hurry up and wait. The bus was hot and the wait long. In the plane waiting for take off was unhealthily hot with no fresh air for at least 25 minutes. Also the check in process was bad. All the counters had monitors disposing RyanAir but it turns out you could check in for Bulgaria Air at most counters."

Pros: "Very pleasant overall"

Pros: "It's a very small distance flight but the crew was very nice"
Cons: "Don't have much choice in drink or food"

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "The first leg, Madrid to Vienna, was great. Check-in and flight crew were friendly. Check-in line was very long though. Took almost an hour due to some passengers adjusting the weight in their bags."
Cons: "The second leg, Vienna to Sophia, was not smooth at all. I did not get a boarding pass for it when I checked in at The beginning in Madrid. At Vienna airport, no one knew where I could get the boarding pass. They sent back and forth between terminals and between airlines check in counters. Finally Austrian airlines issued the boarding pass. My bag did not arrive in Sophia. Two other passengers, who had also transferred, did not receive their luggage either."
