Stop trying to be a budget airline and invest in your customers rather than shareholders. Need better seats, free meals on 4+ hour flights, and entertainment. Also, the plane was old and definitely needed interior work (call buttons and lights were constantly flashing and ringing for the last 30 minutes of the flight).

I was a good trip, except for one thing.

I was very upset when travelling from Mumbai to London, Heathrow, because the crew in Mumbai did not send my baggage directly to Toronto and I had to go through the whole process of checking in Montreal to travel to Toronto, which was my last destination.

There simply is not enough room for such a long flight. I havent Flown in a while and was surprised at how tight the seats were since i last flew - both flying from the US to Istanbul and vice versa. However, for the shorter two hour connecting flights, from Istanbul to Tel Aviv, the seats seemed to have more room. This does not make sense.

We couldn't fly Zurich - Malaga due to a 5 hour delay in our first flight : Washington DC- Zurich. We lost our connection and United (who operated the fight) reschedule our flight wrong first of all, our names didn't appear in Zurich to Madrid flight, and it wasn't enough time to do the connection between Madrid Malaga, so we have to spend one night in Madrid. In addition we lost our luggage. They've ruined our vacations.

the United Airline crews were nice and the food was good. the flight attendant could have been more attentive when they serve drinks and not to be in a hurry. i was served 2x with drinks with no napkin. I have to wait for an attendant to pass by for a napkin.

the United airline seats are very uncomfortable. They are too high level for me. Boarding at UA was a little confusing for first time passenger.There was no information given before boarding regarding who will go to which economy line - there were 2 lines for economy.

First leg was on United (codeshare) 767. The seat pitch on that version was good, even for a tsix-footer. The flight was almost empty, so there was plenty of room to stretch across seats and sleep. In order to avoid dairy, I order kosher meals - and the quality was OK. The cabin crew was nice to start with, and very relaxed and friendly as the flight progressed because of the low-stress service for so few passengers.

No complaints.

I can’t say enough about the Lufthansa staff- we ran to our gate because our connecting flight was late, and we were greeted by a warm and smiling face who said “It’s alright, don’t run, take your time, we’re waiting for you.” Onboard the crew was phenomenal- Every. Single. One. I have always felt as a burden to crew if I asked for extra water or an extra blanket- not on this flight, not with this crew. They came around multiple times per hour during an 8hr and 20min flight, offering various beverages and checking on everyone. I can’t thank them enough for how caring they were to everyone on board. The captain as well was very professional and had a kind spirit when he spoke. Best experience I’ve ever had- (and I travel multiple times per year!)

Boarding was again easy, directions were clear as to where I should sit. My only trouble with the crew was that announcements were sometimes too quiet to hear at all, which I hardly cared about anyway (seat belts, please). The movie selection was unexpectedly good, as was the music section. Books were meh.

I was not comfortable after about four hours, my biggest problem being I had already been riding in an airplane for a total of six hours that day. Food was fine, but came with salt, which was nice. I don't expect a four course meal on an airplane, but I didn't eat with gusto. The headphones provided were lousy, but I just plugged in my own set.

The Lufthansa crew and planesnare always top notch.

Long wait time to board, delay of approx 40 min without any update on what was happening. I believe however that is not the fault of Lufthansa crew but rather the SJJ airport staff. I also have one star for entertainment bc there is no option for “not applicable”- this airbus was not equipped with a television or other entertainment options as the flight length is merely an hour.

Plane felt like a 1990 air France flight. Cabin dated. The least amount of room I can remember on a plane. When sitting upright and the person in front reclined, i looked at their head and if I crossed my arms, it would touch the seat in front. Could not pick up pillow that dropped on the floor, could not bend around the seat in front. Very hard to get out to use the toilet. Felt very claustrophobic.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
