Absolutely inadequate transfer at Munich airport. Lufthansa sold a ticket for a flight with 45 mins transfer, and your connecting flight is actually in a different terminal. In order to get to that terminal you need to walk 10 mins to a train station, take a train, and then go through passport control. All this in less than 45 mins (deduct 20 mins for boarding)? Madness.
That was a serious deicing job!
Our luggage was left behind alongside many others who’d transferred from another Lufthansa flight.
Late boarding. Late take off. Late landing.
Easier website to navigate
The air hostesses were downright unhelpful. I never had wifi service and no one would help in getting it working. Main complaint by far is how rude some of the stewardesses were.
Didn't have my boarding pass until Montreal, really stressful and neither Luftansa or Air Canada were rlly helpful.
The airport and Luftanza were understaffed. It was slow going.
The seats seemed much closer together on this plane. I felt much more cramped than other journeys in coach. Other passengers around me who are taller or bigger had even even more trouble.
Cons: "Mejorar las oferta de películas abordo"
Cons: "Flight left without us even though they knew our flight had landed and we were on our way. Then they rerouted us with a longer flight and our luggage didn’t make it."
Pros: "I was amazed how comfortable we were in economy. Pillows, Blankets that felt like cotton. I would fly Lufthansa over an american carrier any day. We passed through the business class cabin on the way out and I can only imagine how much they were pampered!"
Cons: "Since flying in the US has become expensive and painful I was not expecting much from this flight. They exceed my expectations by so much that I cannot think of anything I would change. (Ok, my chicken was a bit over cooked but that was such a minor thing.)"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful. Food and drinks was good."
Cons: "More movies in Russian language, or with English subtitles"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Need to link the food request to the new flight since there was a delay from the arriving Lufthansa flight"
Cons: "Boarding process. Everyone boarding at once does not work well when it is a full flight"
Pros: "The crew was amazingly friendly, efficient, and hardworking."
Cons: "After 7 hours, the seat became very uncomfortable. Not just a Lufthansa issue."
Pros: "Crew was OK, seat was comfortable"
Cons: "No choice for food, for the last rows only pasta was left, bad calculation on crew side"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on-time. Flight attendents were pleasant and helpful. Food portions and choices were good, and Lufthansa is always generous with drinks. Good value for money on Lufthansa."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, as clear instructions were not given about which group was boarding when and where to line up. Also Lufthansa did not do a good job managing carry-on bags, so that it took way too long to load people and many bags were left over once overhead bins were full. Seating area is cramped in economy."
Cons: "I still think it makes more sense to board the seats in the back of the plane before those further forward. It is difficult to get past the people who stand in the aisle or take forever to try to put their bag in the overhead bin."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attent ive"
Cons: "Delay cause sings uS to miSs oUr fliGh? ENT.ert.ainmrt wasn't good eitHer and way to cramped even for coach on that long of a fligh"
Pros: "Their airport service is outstanding. We were traveling with a mobility challenged person and they were so helpful in getting us through check in, out to our gate, and through boarding."
Cons: "The service and staff on the plane are top notch, and the meals and drinks were very satisfying. The entertainment center on each seat had enough choices to pass the time. I rate Lufthansa a very good choice for trips to Europe, and will use them on my future trips."
Pros: "The flight was very pleasant. The flight attendants were also very nice."
Pros: "Seat comfort and entertainment Option for WIFI and to charge was very nice add"
Cons: "Lost our luggage"
Pros: "Premium economy seats make a huge difference in terms of comfort. The Vegan pre-selected meal was way better this leg of the trip than the LAX to FRA trip. Entertainment was good too."
Pros: "frequent passing out of water and juice; very good dinner; cheerful hostesses; choice of video entertainment"
Pros: "A male flight attendance made me feel uncomfortable. I sat in empty sit with number 3 instead of 4 and he asked me to check my number on my boarding pass. WIth an extremely directive and dictating tone in his voice he told me YOU SHOULD GO AND SIT to what your ticket says. It is VERY important to be sited, although the seats are available you should be sited where your boarding pass directs you to be."
Cons: "I realized that some people of their crew are extremely insane! I have never had an issue like this, with DELTA or AIR FRANCE, or KLM, or NORWEGIAN, or SAS If it was only one persona that I had to deal with, which it was on my flight from NY to Munich I would say , it was coincidence . One person is not a statistical point and accuse the whole Company. But this was repeated on my second flight from Munich to Athens. Then I said, this is not coincidence, it is a pattern that is repeated and not professional . NEVER AGAIN WITH LUFTHANSA is my decision and my recommendation."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Lufthansa crew is usually good, so no complaints."
Cons: "Even the crew said that the plane was too crowded, and that they should have used a larger plane for such a full flight.There was no entertainment on the plane, unless you provided your own device. My flight from Chicago to Frankfurt was on a very large plane so I have no complaints, but, the plane chosen from Frankfurt to Tel Aviv was much smaller, and packed to the gills, with passengers, and luggage, and crew. The crew themselves remarked that the type of plane used for this flight was inappropriate."
Pros: "Still thinking about it."
Cons: "I didn't like that there was no organization. People just flooded the gate like animals.."
Cons: "Me starting to get sick!"
Pros: "I loved the hot towels."
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!!!!!! (I am only 5.3 Inch tall) What about the taller people? I was having stomach problems after eating the airplane food."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "The food is not tasty"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving Munich and it caused me to miss my connection. And just my luck my rebooking was 2.5 hours delayed."
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful. Flight was half empty so it was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was not very clean."
Cons: "leg space is mediocre (i'm 1,93m though)"
Cons: "Because of mechanical errors in our point of origin (NJ, USA) we were unable arrive on time in Germany to make this connecting flight. Very very disappointed in United Airlines. Will never travel with them again."
Pros: "Senator lounge in franfort was very comfortable, showers were good, french champagne, overall good food on the flight and service level very professional"
Cons: "If the flight was longer I would not have minded I enjoy long haul on lufthansa"
Pros: "The flight from Frankfurt to Newark, NJ was good. Flight crew was courteous and movies made the time go quickly. Food and drinks were also plentiful. I have no complaints other than having to pay extra for seat assignments."
Pros: "Great seats, with legroom and ample food."
Cons: "The flight was a replacement for a cancelled flight. In addition to this, it was delayed. The flight attendants did not compensate for our inconvenience and were not very friendly or available in general. The incoming flight had been delayed by hours, with boarding and deplaning and a very bad attitude."
Pros: "on time departure"
Cons: "seats from Kiev to Munich were terribly uncomfortable. Food is very bad. After what the luftansa pilots i will never fly Lufthansa ever again. Our outgoing flight was a nightmare and destroyed our short vacation"
Pros: "Service and entertainment were great. The food was somewhat better than most airlines with free beer and wine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed on departure by 8 hours. This caused us to cancel and rearrange hotels. The flight back had to make an emergency medical stop for 2 hours but this was not the fault of the airline and is understandable.."
Pros: "After so many domestic flights of being shuffled around and interacting with flight attendants that seem to not like their jobs much and passenger's are just an annoyance, flying abroad on Luftansa was quite a different experience! The flight attendants were polished, professional, and actually wanted to provide a service. Their interactions made me feel like I was cared about and that they wanted my unique needs to be met. This made a 10 hour flight an enjoyable experience which I certainly didn't anticipate."
Pros: "Well taken care of"
Cons: "Seats are very close together in Economy"
Pros: "Good entertainment options and nice choice of movies and TV. Complimentary drinks are good and service is frequent."
Cons: "Difficulty with Lufthansa's website made it so that I could only complete check in for one person in our party. When we arrived at the airport and they printed boarding passes, the Lufthansa agent re-assigned seats without asking or telling me and gave us all middle seats. Very poor form. Food was either average or bad, depending on what was served. Boarding is unorganized, with people lining up over an hour prior to boarding and almost completely ignoring their boarding groups."
Pros: "personal screen with option to start / pause and restart movie, good selection of movies but not the resent ones. Hot food, quick service. considered crew"
Cons: "no relaxing/ meditating music to ease sleeping only voice guided recordings, 3 hrs delay increased travel to 11 hrs 45 min"
Cons: "6 hour delay , no explanation given whether the original flight was cancelled or not, bags have been lost. Complete chaos."
Pros: "comfortable seats pleasant flight attendants"
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us."
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."
Pros: "Exit row seat had much more space for legs, very much worth the upcharge for this seat."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was very cool for me. Never used a blanket on an international flight before, and used a blanke on this whole 9 hour flight. Maybe a function of the seat location? Not sure but I was cold."
Cons: "Very cramped seat on the TGV train. I will definitely choose and pay a seat on my own next time, rather than accepting the on picked by Air France... And it will be cheaper, too!"
Pros: "Nice and attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable in premier economy."
Pros: "The cabin crew were amazing and the seats very comfortable, even in economy. I'm not a super comfortable flyer so I loved that the pilot would always warn when we were getting into turbulence. 2 thumbs up. I will fly Air France again"
Cons: "I'd appreciate a better selection of food and drinks, even if I have to pay for the drinks."
Pros: "Amazing crew and on time flight"
Pros: "Nothing !! Such a bullshit flight ever !!!"
Cons: "No tv fo 14 hr long flight !! Flight delayed for 1 he !! No proper arranged to board .. it was kiosk!! Food quality was worse. No space to seat !! Can’t sleep .. no leg space !! Worst fight till the date !!!"
Cons: "Entertainment worked sporadically"
Pros: "Great food and friendly crew."
Cons: "Seatback system was old and not very functional."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"
Pros: "Average crew. Average seat."
Cons: "They could have controlled screening babies better. They just let them scream....."
Pros: "Tight seat, was moved out of exit row because of my age"
Cons: "Could have stayed in exit row. Plan arrived in Moscow late so flight was over one hour late"
Cons: "If you have to change planes and Paris is your middle person. Leave at least 2-3 in between the two flights otherwise you might not make it."
Cons: "make passengers from Nigeria to feel respected and important. Imagine no entertainment in the aircraft in addition to a very poor food."
Cons: "My entertainment device did not work the entire flight."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was awesome"
Cons: "It's awfull to sleep. Very unconfortable."
Cons: "Flying back to US, passsengers get charged for their luggage. Which this is not informed to us, neither On our email nor when we were checking ( for free) in Us"
Cons: "I ordered Asian Vegetarian Meal. But they served me only pasta."
Pros: "That we were heading home. Nice seats. Good food. Lots of entertainment choices. Power plugs ( USB and European power) were appreciated. Wine as a choice with meal was appreciated and brandy after the meal."
Cons: "Some of the shows and movies were a bit 'trashy'. Long flight. I was in the middle seat next to an inattentive octanegarian who was nice but kept calling the flight crew to fix her mess up of the video system. No air controls on this plane - so it was overly warm. 10 hours of overly warm makes for a stinky passenger. Oof."
Pros: "Boarding staff helpful with Disabilities; food services quick and pleasant; interior cabin temps appropriate."
Cons: "Why is boarding so prolonged? 1-Small children and elders cannot stand for 20/30 minutes 2-Why are various sections (particularly Economy), no longer boarded by rows. and from rear first...so people don’t clog aisles, step over others, injure or be injured by heavy overhead moves?"
Pros: "The size of the plane was nice. They had a good move selection. The vegan meal I was given was great."
Cons: "It was loud, cold, the food was just okay at least my vegan meal was the bomb but it would have been better had when we booked the flight it allowed me to also choose this option for my husband. Since he is vegan as well."
Pros: "The food was okay and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "My seat and several others around me were broken so that they would fall all the way back if we leaned back at all. The entertainment system kept crashing and forgetting what shows everyone on board we’re watching. There were no air vents to control. The games crashed constantly. The usb hubs didn’t work."
Cons: "I leave my jacket in the hanger when I get off the airplane I realized that they didn’t gave it to me. I inmeadiatly tey to go back but I couldn’t I went to the counter and they said that there was noting on the plane !"
Cons: "The seat seemed smaller and space was very uncomfortable. The boarding process was very painful because we had to wait for a longtime."
Pros: "Priority boarding with kids"
Cons: "Nothing special just like easyJet ir Rayanair"
Pros: "It was ok fligh"
Cons: "Food was not so good"
Pros: "Free snack and drinks. Good service."
Pros: "Plenty of seat space"
Cons: "In flight entertainment and call button was broken ... crew never passes to ask if you’d like water."
Pros: "The food was pretty good and the staff were friendly. During our transfer in Paris, my mum had a medical emergency and had to go to the medical centre. As such wr couldnt go to our final destination in Morocco and had to get our luggage off the plane. The staff at the AF counter were very helpful in that aspect. And when one of the luggages was completely damaged, it was replaced it with a brand new one which was fantastic. On the way back, we had some issues with the ticket because we didnt go to Morocco as planned which resulted in some trouble checking in. But the staff at the counter were quite helpful."
Pros: "All was good we didn’t feel the time 9 hours passed easily"
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "Love the flight attendant, loads of food couldn’t take it anymore. Professionalism at its peak."
Pros: "Good service at gate and on board"
Pros: "Option to upgrade seat which I didn't take but might for outbound red eye flight in future."
Cons: "Faulty toilet meaning longer queues for the loo. Crew were a bit haphazard in serving food and my row was missed out for coffee after dinner."
Cons: "They lost my luggage"
Pros: "We were on a 9 hour flight which is pretty exhausting on its own. However, Air France provided you with a pillow and blanket, as well as headphones, so that you can make the best of the long trip."
Cons: "The chairs, for whatever reason, after just not that comfortable. Too squishy and they make noise when you adjust your position. I fidget a lot on flights so I felt like I was making a lot of noise. Also the plane didn't have cold air, do you get toasty pretty quick."
Pros: "There was enough leg room"
Cons: "The food was not very nice and the aircraft was really cold."
Cons: "Each time the space in this planes is smaller. Surprising, it was very hot all the time."
Pros: "Lovely crew, clean toilets"
Cons: "It's an a380, stains everywhere, aisles between seats narrow even for business, caos at CDG, no clear queues, ground staff shout at passengers, food selection good but huge gap between describtion and reality, in JFK we waited for 30 minutes cause the docking spot was too narrow for the captain, sky priority? The economy got their bags before 1st and business."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful Helpful, pleasant, capable"
Cons: "Waiting for late passengers & their luggage"
Pros: "Was upgraded to Business class, so the food was acceptable. Comfort score also reflects the Business class seat. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "One bag did not arrive in Toronto, apparently delayed in Paris."
Cons: "Disorganised boarding with people allowed to bring on multiple and oversize bags that by the airlines own admission delayed departure"
Pros: "The plane is roomy and bright"
Pros: "Air France is the worst company I have ever flown with. They changed our seats last minute. They where late both flights. Not worth the stress if your layovers are short. Also they took my passport with no explanation of why into another room with out my permission."
Pros: "No complain about Air France. The service and food are very good. Enjoy it."
Cons: "Our return flight is Milan--CDG--SFO. The transfer time at CDG is 1 hour. The line at CDG is incredibly long. We barely made it. IMPOSSIBLE for tax return. Very bad flight connection experience."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment wad quite nice, even though the screens were old."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was tasteless. I expected way more."
Pros: "normal flight"
Cons: "i would prefer little bit more comfort."
Cons: "Could have been on time also one bag carry on mean 1 not 1 plus a backpack the WiFi also wasn’t working properly"
Pros: "empty plane"
Pros: "waited for us. We were late from Yuma"
Pros: "Amazingly helpful and friendly crew."
Cons: "Affordable fares equates to small space."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing The seat was not comfortable at all Had a broken back rest"
Cons: "Fix the seat Broken back rest aren’t comfortable"
Cons: "Just doesn’t compare to the new 787’s"
Cons: "The seat from DFW to SLC was designed for people who have a sever slouch. Very uncomfortable seating position that isn’t anatomically correct."
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Pros: "My flight attendant always smiled and was very hospitable."
Cons: "No había espacio para equipaje arriba."
Pros: "Flight time, availability on short notice"
Cons: "Delayed, no communication, delayed at boarding, sat at arrival with no gate."
Cons: "Play primetime tonight cancel playing in late overnight real pain in the butt"
Cons: "Have coach passengers prepay for meals"
Pros: "Super old plane. No entertainment except for old screens from the ceiling every six rows or so."
Pros: "Time of flight"
Cons: "Aircraft had no screen, old, uncomfortable"
Pros: "Free movie. Informative announcements - friendlier than usual. They told us we were going to take off an hour late due to bad weather in Philly, but it turned out to be only 1/2 hour, and we arrived only 15 minutes late than scheduled. Not so bad."
Cons: "The seat seemed a little lumpy or uneven. I usually don't purchase meals, but thought I would this time. However, meals weren't available."
Pros: "Great flight. Great staff. Nice landing"
Cons: "That the bags came out late and I missed my next flight. It was the last flight for that day. Royal Jordanian did not offer hotel stay or anything because they said it is not their fault that the bags showed up late"
Pros: "Boarding was fairly quick, and improvement has been made with people waiting for their boarding group to be called from crowding the boarding line. The crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Several seat changes had to be made, but it all worked out."
Pros: "Short duration"
Cons: "My seat mate was coughing quite vigorously when we boarded. Not a single flight attendant asked her if she was ok. She was a very sweet older lady traveling by herself. Also I prefer when the flight deck makes an announcement prior to take off. It is reassuring to hear their voice especially in times of rough air. That did not happen today"
Pros: "American Airlines Crew, friendly and personable"
Pros: "Despite numerous delays, we made it to Philadelphia. We were alerted to the delays in a timely manner. We were also treated to a snack cart and cupcakes to celebrate the first day of direct flights."
Cons: "A long delay. Patience is everything and the staff and crew were very friendly."
Pros: "Helpful crew - courteous in their attitude towards customers and helped tight connections get out of quickly from the rear of the plane. Smile was on for each interaction."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 50+ mins. The exit row announcement was made twice asking customers to acknowledge verbally which was probably a communication faux pas."
Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."
Cons: "Late departure. Sat on tarmac for 20 minutes"
Cons: "Coach seating is too tight"
Cons: "The plane had a problem. No mechanic in Huntington. Poor communication from American to the crew in Huntington. Connecting flight missed. Had to wait for standby. Luggage ruined by broken wheel and chunk missing where the wheel had been."
Cons: "The fact that the flight was cancelled and I was unable to reschedule from this airport, resulting in an increased price of almost $1,000."
Cons: "The seats were really bad, it was our first trip on a 787 and I will never do it again. Not as bad as the Airbus from MIA but considering it's 13 hours it was totally rubbish. We normally fly the 777 with Air NZ, after this we will go back to them. The staff, as always were helpfull and pleasant, the plane was quiet but the seats....."
Pros: "On time, no problems, free food"
Cons: "3 & 3 configuration"
Pros: "Everything. I bought some souvenir magnets from the shop across from Starbucks near Gate C5(?). The gentleman working the register was very pleasant and was a welcome personality so early in the day. As a service member, I would like to thank him for his service. He was consistent in asking patrons whether they’d like to purchase a travel kit for the troops. A few patrons were abrupt and responded rudely but he maintained a level head and pressed on. Great attitude and professionalism. Thank you very much for your support! Also, I was able to get my Military discount applied towards my purchase which enabled me to purchase 1 travel kits for my fellow service members. A little goes a long way and when returning from deployments or coming home for R&R, it tends to be hectic and I, myself have often forgotten toiletries which I was able to get from the USO. The USO staff were also friendly and did an amazing job handling all of the personnel that funneled in, exhausted. Great attitudes and clean facilities. I would love to see an expansion to this USO location. They were full up this day, thank you for having this available to us! TSgt Angela Santiago Otero, USAF"
Pros: "Loved exit row as a surprise when I boarded!"
Cons: "$8 white wine is crazy expensive. But loved the Sav Blanc from France!"
Cons: "Although a BA flight I had to pay AA charges for checked baggage. Agent at AA counter was trying to help by offering my bag as carry on. I paid the $100.00 charge as I am handy capped and did not want to wrestle extra weight. Under BA there should have been no charge but the AA counter staff acted ignorant of that fact. Not sure why I am telling you this as I expect nothing will be done by anyone."
Pros: "Crew was nice, biscuits were nice"
Cons: "crammed like sardines, if you're over 5'6" You charged extra to get a little more leg room and if the roomier seats are sold, you're out of luck."
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Never should have been on this later flight which also took off late. And I don't even know where my luggage will end up. I should get an apology and cash for my troubles."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very cold on board"
Pros: "Poor attitude. Seemed as though they were doing us a favor serving us. Did not pick up garbage for at least an hour. Absolutely zero personality"
Cons: "I do not like flying American. Still sitting and waiting on my flight to Waco"
Cons: "Short flight, so food offering was little pretzels."
Pros: "No fees for carryon, like Republic charged on the way out"
Cons: "NO seats available on booking, without paying extra. Never could sit together, even though booked together. Greedy but stupid."
Pros: "There was a lot of extra room on the flight so it was comfortable. The meals were tasty. I was glad they gave us a few snacks in addition to the main meal and the dinner snack with the tart and the sponge taper very good."
Cons: "The monitors were very difficult to use. I had to press them multiple times to change the screen"
Pros: "Their customer service sucks."
Cons: "Their customer service sucks."
Pros: "Refreshments we're good and the crew was nice."
Cons: "There weren't any screens in the headrests for individual movie-viewing."
Pros: "Fast boarding and left gate on time on a holiday"
Cons: "Felt cramped in like cattle"
Pros: "Thomas of the crew gave incredible service."
Cons: "Both to and from the seat didn't fully function and both ways the entertainment system broke down"
Pros: "Everyone was so nice"
Cons: "They didn't give me a drink"
Pros: "Boarded on time and was easy"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Boarding process was quick and staff was decent."
Cons: "Tiny seats, everyone was uncomfortable because of this. No in flight entertainment."
More delays and almost got diverted to another city. Didn't get set up for text notifications.
The check-in process was a disaster. 2 hours to check-in for PRIORITY boarding. We have never in over 40 years of travel experienced such a poor and lengthy check-in. Luckily, security and customs was nearly empty so we could breeze through it, and they intentionally delayed the plane half an hour to allow passengers to make it. The rest of the flight was as expected (in business class). But our luggage never made it to San Diego. We tried to locate and Air Canada rep at baggage claim but we were told that no one from AC showed up that day. I had to make a claim for our luggage by calling in to baggage services with AC and I was told that only because I had 75k travel status with AC would I get my luggage this week. Let’s see! I know many people that were waiting in line with me at Pierson missed their flights. Total disaster at Pierson this week.
Air Canada is a reputable airline, dedicated to supporting customers.
I liked the apparent efficiency and organization of the boarding process and the in-flight service. The seats were extremely cramped. On a 10 hour flight, the closeness of the seats can become a bit unbearable. Otherwise, all was good. I was impressed with Air Canada. I'll be checking to see if they fly out of Saulte St. Marie.
No inflight entertainment screens.
Pros: "They had very bad service for 5 hours flight I asked two times I need a coffee but they didn’t give it for me and on that time I saw they serviced for two another guys just they said to me “we come back to you” but unfortunately they didn’t come back. No facilities for calling the crew. I am very angry for my flight Toronto to Vancouver specially the bad crews."
Cons: "See and train the crew and look for your services for 5 hours flight."
Cons: "The attendants could have been more hospitable"
Cons: "There were several announcements to download the Air Canada app in order to access in flight entertainment. They must have been 5-6 announcements about this. WiFi access was to start after take off in order to use the app. but was never available."
Cons: "air canadas service, they should reimburse my accomodation expenses because of their poor time management."
Pros: "Time!! All was on time! And arrived early !!"
Cons: "Pre-selection of seats,"
Pros: "Gate crew were very good at keeping us apprised of the status of the inbound plane and our estimate departure time. The flight crew were all very helpful and engaging. Not easy on a packed flight where too many people brought too many carry-on bags."
Cons: "I am a true-blue Air Canada customer but their checked baggage fees has created a disaster when it comes to boarding flights and getting planes in the air on-time. Many people had too many carry-on bags or very large carry-on bags so the time it took to board was ridiculous. Better rules need to be enforced with carry on (not that I blame people for trying, considering the increase in checked baggage fees) so that flights can be boarded more quickly and planes can take off on time."
Cons: "One of the washrooms was a disgrace! There was vomit or diarrhea or both on the floor and on the top to the toilet seat. No one bothered to clean it up. Also, my wife identified herself to Lufthansa that she has celiac's disease, yet when the food cart came by, she was informed that all she could purchase that was gluten free was nuts. We found out later that there was a fruit and cheese plate available. Also, it seems that there were few items available from the on board menu. Why bother even having a menu if many of the items were not available? Air Canada should be ashamed!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent despite the fact that we were delayed 3 hours due to a broken fuel pump. They were also nice enough to give us a free dinner due to the inconvenience, and let us come off the plane to stretch our legs while we waited. Overall, excellent job handling something that was out of their control."
Cons: "Was not very pleased with the fuel pump being broken. Not sure how far ahead they knew it was broken, but if they were able to tell me my flight would be delayed 3 hours earlier, I could have extended my vacation. Additionally, the selections on the Air Canada entertainment app are far worse than the Westjet ones."
Pros: "Great service- friendly patient helpful, pilots that kept passengers updated and very reassuring and confident sounding. KAYAK got me perfect seats!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t spectacular, and being limited to credit card purchasing is always a problem for many travellers. Pre-purchasing options are a great option except for last minute wishes."
Pros: "chairs and plane service was good and friendly ."
Cons: "the food was not good"
Pros: "Competent stewards/stewardesses"
Cons: "No meal?"
Cons: "delayed and sat on tarmac for 2.5 hrs"
Pros: "Second time on this flight and cant say enough good about the crew and food, they are fantastic. The movies are great."
Cons: "How do you loose bags between the gate and customs Being tied up in customs because they lost my bags when we arrived in Toronto. One and one half hour wait and the bags never arrived at the final destination for two more days.? The seats on a fifteen hour flight could stand to be better."
Cons: "In the past Air Canada has been great. This past experience makes me never want to fly again. In-flight entertainment is the worst I have ever experienced on an international airline. Entertainment options were very limited, and it didn't work for most of the flight (crew tried resetting the system, to no avail). Crew were inattentive and seemed more focused on hanging out in the back of the airplane socializing with each other. Food was terrible, and I am generally pretty easily pleased when it comes to food. Return flight was delayed twice without any announcements or explanations in the boarding area. Flights were completely full and airplanes were old and uncomfortable. This flight was cheap for a reason. Pay the extra amount and fly another airline."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "The food was ok"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable over all. It was on time. The staff was pleasant."
Cons: "It was hard to connect our computer to the movies. It was rather confusing and eventually we came to the conclusion that there were only 2 films that were compatible with our laptops. They were the unrated films from film festivals."
Pros: "787-9 Full Flat business class"
Cons: "Arrived 1 hr 15 min late."
Cons: "We ran to the gate to make our connection and reached the gate on time while the flight was still boarding. They offloaded our luggage assuming we will be late!!!!"
Cons: "It was 3am and my boarding pass wasn't bright enough on my phone. Instead of politely asking me to go print out my boarding pass at the check in stations, she yelled at me and told me I was holding up the line"
Pros: "Clean and comfortable cabin"
Cons: "Brusque nature of some of the attendants"
Cons: "Super noisy and we left 30 minutes late"
Pros: "- Air Canada reps are nice, just super unhelpful - Friendly team, but not empowered to really help and quick to pass you off to others"
Cons: "- We tried to check in online and got an error message. When we got to the airport 2 hours before our flight, we were told by customer service rep #1 to join a line. At the front of the line, same rep told us "Oh it's probably that now you need a visa." - Why not tell people when they try to check in why there is an error? The new rule went into effect in December, and we hadn't been to Canada since needing a visa. Once we had been accepted, we were passed off to another employee who couldn't figure out why he couldn't check us in. Then another, who said "I'm only helping you because your flight is delayed, the flight should have closed by now." (Not exactly comforting, and considering it took them 2 hours to help, not super helpful either.) - When we ran to the gate, the people running the gate told us that the aircraft hadn't even landed, but weren't communicative in timing, didn't update the time on the boarding screens, etc."
Pros: "Flight was delayed three hours but they kept changing it ...Original was 945..Changed to 1015 changed to 1120pm then 1150pm then 1215 am then 1250 am.My mom is a Parkinson's patient and has been for ,16 years...Terrible service esp for elderly and families with young children...Had I the choice would not choose to fly w AC again!"
Pros: "Attendant Wendy was fantastic in service and friendliness."
Cons: "Once again big guy put into seat 33F. Seat doesnt go back and no legroom."
Pros: "The pilot and the crew are very proffesional."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Broken toilet for this flight"
Pros: "I liked that I was finally going home for some much needed rest."
Cons: "That's we were stuck in the plane for 30min after we landed because of some miscommunication between LAX and the air Canada staff."
Cons: "Worst food ever on any airline I've been on"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats were hard and not comfortable. There was no entertainment on back of the seats."
Pros: "Yes, I like it"
Cons: "We could not book for large group, so we have to separate"

Cons: "I found the seats a bit tight."
Cons: "My flight was delayed all the way up until 11:40pm."
Pros: "flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Maple Leaf Lounge at Pearson airport was shabby. We expected a bit more than soup and gherkins, but that's all that was available, except for some dry nacho chips. No electrical outlets. Indifferent staff. Shame on Air Canada! We have visited airport lounges all over the world and this was by far the worst!"
Cons: "There was a screaming child and nothing was done about it the entire flight."
Pros: "More leg-room."
Cons: "Stewardesses were not as friendly or interactive with passengers; quite cold."
Cons: "Only in Canada they make you remove headset for takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Boarding area was a nightmare - hot , miles and miles of walking to get there, and crowded. The system for check-in is the stupidest i have ever seen - we were asked to scan passports and boarding passes then stand in a crowded area to wait for names to come up on an electronic board that could only be read from the front of the room. Who thought of that????"
Pros: "no entertainment or food. drink service got to back of the airplane about 5 minutes before beginning descent. Problems though were all before getting on the plane. Will not fly through Pearson again."
Cons: "After 12-hour flight from Tokyo, found flight to Dulles cancelled, with no adequate passenger assistance. Few staff to deal with issues and no familiarity with DC airports, IT support for the few staff available was poor. At re-booked flight gate, the area service desk unattended for an hour; finally found a helpful ground crew who said they are on break and got staff to service the desk, albeit grudgingly. Several flights delayed, in the horrible Gates F-84-99 area; confusion reigned supreme. Staff needs to understand that Dulles is way west of DC and BWI is way NE, so getting re-routed from Dulles to BWI is MAJOR change in ground transportation options and distances. Also need to update IT programming so staff can use it easily without long waits and calls for help. and some air conditioning in the F 84-90 gates area would be nice. Horrible situation--not enough seating, only service in whole area is one bagel shop."
Pros: "I enjoyed the efficiency and friendliness of the crew and the timliness of the flights themselves as well as the boarding process."
Cons: "First flight: My headphones didn't work with the entertainment system and the only other option to watch what was on the tv was to purchase headphones. Also, the movie skeleton was somewhat limited. Also, it was a longer flight but there was no free food option"
Cons: "crew are polite but cold and strict. it was a night flight and they were very noisy when serving the food."
Pros: "Again, I felt we had excellent service. It was a small plane and one steward, and she did everything!"
Pros: "The entertainment options were the best we've experienced."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we were worried we wouldn't have enough time to make our connecting flight but no one at the departure airport (Haneda) or on the plane could give us clear advice on how to proceed most efficiently when we landed. There was no offer to help us connect and no one seemed to know how the immigration and baggage situation would proceed in Toronto."
Pros: "Yes, it was comfortable and they r nice."
Cons: "Ummmm delayed both flights were delayed, it was annoying"
Pros: "Missed the connection because TAP from Vienna arrrives late. The cre who received us at Lisbon airport was very helpful"
Cons: "TAP being on time and giving a reason why the flight was late"
Pros: "Clear communication about delays and boarding, comfortable seats, great service."
Pros: "Horrible service"
Cons: "Nasty people"
Pros: "Price. Service and food offered in the plane"
Cons: "The boarding process: everyone crowds into the line without regard of the grouping."
Cons: "We booked business class. JFK to LIS very nice. Seats were very comfortable and reclined flat. More leg room than in other business class seats. What they called business from LIS to Rome was just regular uncomfortable across economy seats with no one in the middle seat."
Cons: "Maybe have one flight be on time. Train ground crew how to put on fuel."
Pros: "Fantastic crew, super comfortable seats, food was really good, boarding organized."
Cons: "Nothing could have been better!"
Pros: "Got where I was going safely and on time :). Decent leg room, food, comfortable seats."
Cons: "No sound in TV, and no way to adjust subtitle languages (that I could ding). Pretty long delay standing in line to board."
Cons: "So many delays, no real info provided. When we had to stay overnight they didn’t mention it would take 4 hours to get our bags which actually never came. Airline industry sucks and deltas one of the worst."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and service minded"
Cons: "The food was disgusting this time as well as the last time I traveled with TAP. The seats was uncomfortable and in leather like material witch made the seats very warm and sticky."
Cons: "The flight wad late becsuse of the immigration."
Cons: "Plane was full thus carry on roller bags had to be checked- big security concern re theft"
Pros: "airlines could have mentioned that the second leg would require going thru security again and would take a very long time and that I should do this immediately after disembarking even though a gate had not yet been assigned. As A consequence of an intensive interview process before boarding the international leg of the trip (initially only two reps processing everyone on the plane for a few minutes each) the plane left the gate late. It also lost another 15 -20 minutes in flight making it 30 minutes late and I missed my connection in Miami necessitating me to spend a night in a motel and finish my flight the next day."
Cons: "Had the crew enabled me to be first off the plane I would have made the connection but I lost an additional 20-25 minutes being seated in the rear of the plane"
Pros: "Nothing to like. Rude staff."
Pros: "what a great airline! had a great flight from rome to lisbon. we’ll definitely choose TAP over most other airlines in europe from now on"
Pros: "The drinks were available."
Cons: "The drinks were expensive."
Pros: "Clean, modern plane - tightly-packed but comfortable seats. Note: if you travel with a bag with wheels it will be weighed at the gate and those over 8kg will be checked. If you have a heavy bag without wheels, it gets no scrutiny."
Cons: "Odd they didn’t have a terminal gate on their home airport - we were bused from a distant spot on the tarmac to the terminal."
Pros: "The pilot could fly the plane."
Cons: "The servers were rude."
Pros: "Good and entertainment options in executive class."
Cons: "Flight departed LIS late due to a couple of passengers. Definetly not the airline’s fault."
Pros: "It was a cheap way to get to Lisbon with no frills."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess with everyone waiting in front of the gate starting 10 minutes or so before the boarding time. The seats didn't recline at all."
Cons: "Even though I paid for my seats they weren't reserved and I had to request new ones. I paid €80 for them so I'd imagine they would have been reserved. Then they took my blanket when we were getting close with no explanation even though I was cold. I don't get this airline."
Pros: "Seats were nice in the front half of the plane."
Cons: "Checked bag costs are 90USD which is way to high. No meal selection. One choice offered and it was a weird flavor."
Cons: "The food was not available for the business class passengers and we had to take it from economy."
Pros: "They solved the problem of my sit. But i almost have a hurt attack"
Cons: "When I get to check my tickets they told me that I was in stand by. I have to fight to get my sit."
Cons: "I booked this flight months and months ago on Kayak, excited by what I thought was an excellent deal to go visit an old friend. When I got to the Boston airport, I was told there is a fee to check a bag with the ticket type I purchased- of 90 DOLLARS each way!!! This is absurdly expensive. I tried to pay with cash as I had very little on my card, and was told this isn't possible. So I had to pay the fee, and arrive at my 7 hour layover with next to no cash on my card- too little to buy a meal in the airport. So I had a miserable layover experience. I do not recall seeing this baggage fee listed anywhere on Kayak when I booked my flight- it looks like this policy took effect in September 2017, but I booked my flight in July. I am very upset about this additional charge- it is dishonest and I will not be flying with TAP again. I am also considering using alternatives to Kayak, as the TAP representative said that it's Kayak's fault the baggage fee wasn't listed."
Pros: "Everything smooth!"
Pros: "I love flying TAP because I love having extended layovers in Lisbon. Lisbon itself, including the airport, is easy to navigate. The food is great and the culture and architecture is gorgeous. For shorter trips TAP doesn't have as many amenities as other airlines, but on this trip the typical video screens with movies, music, etc. was available."
Cons: "In this particular flight there was a male airline attendant who was fabulous and who could speak many languages, including German. I noticed the other airline attendants seemed to be giving him a really hard time and weren't friendly at all. In fact, I rang a bell to ask for attendant help at one point and no one came to help. I was just a seat back from the area where the helpful airline attendant was available. I think that overall TAP flight staff could be a bit more open to being friendly. However, on the ground in Lisbon I've found the staff to be amazingly helpful."
Pros: "75 Euro per bag!!!"
Pros: "I got to Lisbon on time."
Cons: "just another bus ride"
Cons: "When I booked the ticker online I was informed that I can take up to 23kg luggage, but when I checked in, I had to pay over $120 per person for luggage...I was very disappointed with th ideas treatment"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Great food."
Pros: "Disorganised boarding and staff not efficient Plane was not cleaned until passengers arrived at plane and waited in buses while they finished cleaning, waited standing approximately 30 minutes at plane on bus"
Pros: "Both check ins (to and from Boston) the staff were rude. No information, just alot of speaking Portuguese to other staffers while my family and I stood there. The flight and crew were good, clean, kind and efficient."
Cons: "There was a strike in Lisbon. Thousands of people trying to go through security and four people working the booths. Plus NO information. Just chaos, bad feelings and HOURS of standing in lines. Stressful. Will NEVER go to Lisbon again."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great, plane was clean, smooth flying, takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Check in and bag drop took us 1 hour even though we had already checked in online. hard, and narrow seats, needs more legroom for international travel, armrest between my wife and I was very wide and wouldn't go up all the way making it extremely uncomfortable for us on a flight from Miami to Portugal. My wife's seat didn't recline because it was broken. And to top it all off they lost one of our luggage tags because the lady in Miami tagged the bag with somebody else's name and destination on it. Still waiting to hear if I'm going to have my luggage for one year anniversary vacation....!"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Smaller plane, tighter space, no entertainments"
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."

Pros: "Left on time. Served food and drinks. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Served food and drinks. Orange "juice" tasted awlful. Bland sandwich. Seats did not recline."
Cons: "No water, but it's a short flight so they probably just didn't have time."
Pros: "The service they provided us reminded us of how airlines used to treat their customers in the past. From the customer service to the services provided and the legroom on the flight -- everything was more than what we expected and we would consider flying TAP Portugal again."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "No air from above. Just an all around bad flight with so many problems."
Pros: "A short flight, on-time."
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "Excellent crew and pilot."

Cons: "Bathrooms were not well-stocked on flight. No soap in one bathrooom."
Pros: "Flight was overbooked. TAP Portugal removed me from the flight without warning (I was already at the airport, with plenty of time to spare), and is now making it nearly impossible to get a refund. Would NOT recommend flying with them."
