Had to wait 9 hours lay over in Frankfurt airport for a 2 hour trip the Albania.
They canceled my flight yesterday only an hour for me to leave so am so disappointed by your airline I payed Covid test for $175 . Is hard to get hold of your customers service representative. Your Airline is a scammer
Pros: "Okay crew. Though there are always standouts in the group. They don’t have an easy job with current Covid-19 requirements."
Cons: "Food is down a few notches. Used to better especially on other airlines."
Pros: "Reliable airline."
Cons: "Overly strict on luggage size and weight. I’m talking about 0.1 kg difference. I was attempted twice to check the only small case I have, which is an exact fit to Lufthansa standard. Very annoying. Won’t fly LH again. British Airways is a lot better."
Pros: "The crew was efficient. They seemed to care about the passengers' comfort. Also, even though the flight left late, they made up the time while in the air. They are the reason with I gave the excellent rating, despite some other misgivings."
Cons: "Lufthansa food service seems to have been deteriorated somewhat over the recent past. Especially the snack before landing seems laden with mayo (plain bread might have been better!)."
Pros: "Plane was in good condition."
Cons: "Seats are lousy and armrests so hard my arms go numb. Screaming babies for hours without stopping ."
Cons: "I travelled economy and found the seats not very enabling for big and tall folks as myself ! Other than that I highly recommend flying Lufthansa"
Cons: "Went First Class. What a joke! Coach seats & service. Only difference is they leave the middle seat empty. This appears to be the European standard (we flew on 3 different airlines) for 1st Class within Europe flights. Save your money, fly coach within Europe."
Cons: "Impossible to do beter."
Pros: "Good service for the price"
Cons: "More legroom"
Cons: "Big and unjustified dekay"
Cons: "When purchasing tickets on KAYAK be very careful to notice you often ARE NOT buying the ticket from the airline and any issues you have will be with the reseller and not the airline. KAYAK should be more clear about who the seller is and you should ABSOLUTELY stay away from resellers unless you like to gamble."
Pros: "Standard German efficiency. Neither good nor bad."
Pros: "Flight was on time, and smooth. Food was OK. Very efficient crew."
Cons: "Wheel chair accommodation in Frankfurt is poor, doable but not to the US standards. Lufthansa gate staff member took us to the wrong elevator, ended up outside security and had to go through security screening all over again, now late for flight and not early boarded. Was told she was only on the job for 2 weeks, I don't blame her for her incompetence I blame her management! Plane was loaded on the tarmac via a bus for a large international flight...no gate?? Seats in economy class are equivalent to those on a domestic flight, fairly uncomfortable on a 12hr flight. Many of the entertainment choices were not available, you can select it but all it plays is a short commercial."
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, there was no TV or any other entertainment"
Pros: "After the first flight on the incredible new plane, this was a disappointment. Plane seemed old and dilapidated."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "This space intentionally left blank"
Cons: "For starters, they sat my 12 year old daughter 6 rows away and both of us in center seats so no one would switch with us. Mid flight, my daughter asked to switch with me since the guy next to her kept asking personal questions and was making her uncomfortable. Second, the in flight entertainment did not work. Third, I had pre-ordered a diabetic meal, they “think they may have given it to someone else.” Fourth, one hour delay making for a tight connection. And finally... they lost my suitcase. Should arrive in a few days."
Cons: "i ordered 1 kosher meal and the flight attendant said they gave out all special meals and ours was not on the list"
Pros: "The crew onboard the flight was very friendly and accommodating! They did their best with what they had. I also like that there were diabetic and vegetarian meals offered, although the diabetic meals should ideally focus on lower carbohydrate totals. Fruits and breads can pack just as much sugar as sweets."
Cons: "Starting with the boarding area at LAX, there was some really high pitched siren that kept going off over and over which no one seemed to care to investigate or do anything about. It was very irritating, and seemed to put lots of passengers in a bad mood before the plane even started boarding. Then when they announced boarding was beginning, everyone got up and created massed around creating four chaotic lines. It was a mess. We left 45 min late, which caused us to run to make our connecting flight because the person at the gate never told us it was also going to be leaving late. The plane itself was extremely uncomfortable as well. I'm 5'8" tall and that's mostly torso. I fit easily in the back seat of my buddy's mini Cooper, and I could barely fit in the space without my legs hitting the seat in front of me. That was before the guy in front of me put his seat back and made it so I could barely reach under my seat. Then there was the control panel for my personal video monitor. The panel was located on the armrest in just the right spot where Everytime I put my hand down I accidentally pressed a button to call the flight attendant, or turn the video screen on off, which was really obnoxious when I was trying to sleep and kept accidentally turning on the bright screen which woke me up. The video monitors we're also touch compatible, but the screen was horrible about registering finger presses which led to the lady in the seat behind me smashing the screen as hard as she could repeatedly with her finger, which vibrated all the was through my headrest so I could feel it as if she were trying to get my attention. There was also no air flow above the seats... You simply had to rely on the flight attendant to set a temperature that the whole cabin enjoyed, or you had to suffer silently. Finally, the reading lights on the plane we're so high up that turning one on lit up all the seats around you as well, which meant you had to choose to either sit in the dark and not read, or turn on your light and read quietly while the people around you cursed your name while attempting to get some rest."
Pros: "I flew premium economy from Hong Kong to Frankfurt on the A340-600. The crew was excellent, attentive and friendly. They always have a great attitude and this has been consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The seat and meal were average for premium economy, but the crew more than made up for it."
Cons: "The seats were quite hard and lacking in padding in premium economy. The meal was average and nothing to bring home to."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good legroom."
Cons: "Slight delay."
Pros: "Everything went off without a hitch. Love how organized Lufthansa is."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight and were extremely difficult when rebooking it. We lost 2 days of our trip."
Pros: "Like food and stagf"
Pros: "The staff was kind and friendly (which always is the case with Lufthansa!). I felt like more than just a passenger but as a cared for customer."
Cons: "The premium economy seats, while more spacious, were not much more comfortable. They reclined to the point that it was awkward when using the leg rest. Would be better if the leg rest could raise a little higher.."
Pros: "Excellent aircraft Very nice crew"
Pros: "First class was amazing."
Pros: "Always professional in every detail Great food Great customer service"
Cons: "The variety of drinks"
Cons: "The delay of the flight without thinking of how to take care of the passengers or even appease them after almost 4hours delay"
Pros: "Excellent service and very professional crew both on the ground and in the air. Flight comfortable and a right on time. I highly recommend Lufthansa."
Pros: "Again, nice staff. Clean plane. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The games and the book for the teens did not interest my kids. Not sure how popular those items are. Food-not good at all."
Pros: "The service was top notch and the comfort of economy class is better than any American airline I have been on."
Cons: "U cannot think of anything."
Pros: "Convenient schedule, excellent service, good food, all-around positive experience."
Cons: "Awful customer service once out of the airplane. It took 2 hours from landing to get our luggage. Just terrible. How many times can someone hear a generic announcement about luggage being here momentarily? This left a very poor impression of Lufthansa overall for me and everyone in my party."
Pros: "I have a servere hearing problem and was concerned (since we were late leaving Zurich for my changeover in Frankfurt), that I would be late because I can't hear any loudspeaker systems (either on planes or in airports). I felt that I could get easily lost between flights and not have time to get to the Frankfurt/Denver flight. I told this to the person at the gate in Zurich, and he immediately arranged for someone to meet me in Frankfurt and take me there. I was met by Maika in Frankfurt and she was just excellent--personable and efficient and really helpful. I'm sorry I couldn't remember the name of the person at the gate in Zurich. He was also great. I wouldn't have done this if I had had more time, but this really made my day (and my flight!) ! Thank you!"
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Extra legroom, pillows, headphones, and blanket provided. I liked that I had my own screen. Snacks and drinks were offered in between meals. Water constantly available which is important for hydration on such a long flight."
Cons: "Very crowded, the lady behind us was coughing her lungs out the whole flight. Flight was smooth but arrived behind schedule. Actually landed on time but we didn't get to the terminal for almost 15 minutes. The Frankfurt airport is a nightmare, worst designed airport I have been through."
Pros: "Thank you so much for having activities for children to keep them entertained."
Pros: "I was very pleased by this flight, all good or excellent."
Cons: "I have nothing negative to say."
Pros: "Worst flight experience EVER"
Cons: "Still have not found our lost bags"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "The only suggestion I would have is that the entertainment options could be a bit more updated. The movie selection was not as good as I have experienced it on other flights (--- other airlines have a better 'new release' selection)."
Cons: "The most unpleasant flight attendants we have ever had in our flying lives. Rude, condescending, treating passengers as if we are not human. Lufthansa should carefully examine their training."
Pros: "I fly regularly between Germany and USA. Would rate this flight as the second best flight in recent years. Small details can make a difference."
Cons: "The breakfast that was served was not great. Blueberry muffin super sweet and canola bar with raisins.none odds which i would ever pick if I had any choice."
I had a small back pack and a small suitcase. The boarding staff were extremely rude and wouldn’t let me take both on board. Only one small bag on board even though there was tons of space and I paid for premium seat. Also—they want you to wear their mask—even though I had n95. Will definitely avoid this airline in the future
Cons: "More food"
Pros: "One hour delay after boarding due to loosing our “slot”"
Cons: "To arrive on time"
Pros: "Good amount of leg space"
Cons: "Airport in Vienna was pretty disorganized. Several people from several flights had to be pulled out for additional screening that should have been done earlier. Passengers were confused and frustrated"
Pros: "Friendly crew and ground crew worked VERY quickly and efficiently to deal with a broken plane and switch us all rather seamlessly to a replacement plane. Impressive."
Pros: "Plane was clean. Staff helpful"
Cons: "We booked our seats online and later at check in received boarding passes with totally different seats. Ordered kids meals and was informed that they dont have any for our kids :("
Pros: "Awful airline. Will never get tickets through you again."
Cons: "Airline compliance. The flight was delayed and the connecting flight left without out us. Leaving us stranded at the airport for 4 hours."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "I don't like the movie options. Some are quite sexual and can be seen around the plane."
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "The Austrian airlines website is absolutely the worst and least user friendly that I've seen for an airline. I tried paying for my bags and it rejected half of the itinerary's bookings for no reason. It took a ton of clicks to get stuff done and I kept getting errors. Very limited movie selection."
Pros: "Staff and the service"
Cons: "Dinner was so bad"
Pros: "Departed on time, smooth sailing."
Cons: "no entertainment available"
Pros: "Crew was positively and smiling."
Cons: "Flight was 44 min late. Could have been on time"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, polite crew."
Cons: "1. Check-In , Check-In , check-In .. automated much more time consuming and probably costly. 2. Delayed flight (as usual) .. 6.am D.T. should either mean 6.00 or 6.05 or 6.10 ... but not 6.30. 3. Very tight connection flights in Vienna, so a slight delay could mean missed connection. 4. Food"
Pros: "Excellent crew, delicious Austrian wine, only a short flight so only some nibbles to eat which was fine."
Cons: "Seat wasn't the best, quite hard on the middle back."
Pros: "The seats were very nice, and I found it very pleasing that everything was colour coordinated. (the small details in red and the rest in gray). The flight attendants were so happy and upbeat, it lifted your mood as well! I believe that we left a few minutes early, as boarding was completed early. And thefood? Mind-blowing for airplane food. I really enjoyed this flight."
Cons: "There wasn’t much I didn’t like about the flight. Sometimes the announcements were very slightly difficult to hear (accents and whatnot,) but you could still tell what they were saying."
Cons: "Boarding process was not easy to hear and it was unclear where the line for our gate ended and the line for the gate right next to ours began"
Cons: "The plane was HUGE, too big. With such a big plane the crowd formed by the gate waiting to board was unmanageable. Also the giant plane felt like it was hard to maneuver during take off and landing. I would very much prefer a smaller plane. The touch screen in front of me was not always responding when I tried to tap the screen. The audio jack was also not working great; sometimes I did not have audio in my right earbud and I had to turn and fidget the plug. The earbuds provided by the airline did not even work when plugged into the screen, I had to use my own earbuds."
Pros: "Special kosher meal was good!!!"
Cons: "Would like access to coffee more often. :) Internet/wireless did not work for entire flight. Aisles super small. Overall - great experience!"
Cons: "I had a weelchair and nobody assist me in Viene in Austria"
Cons: "Lufthansa’s/Austrian Airlines’s idea of a ‘snack’ is a pathetic little bag of sugar and chemicals that no one should have to be offered, even if it comes for free. Hugely disappointed. Flight attendants not attentive enough, and it took forever for the flight attendant to come after I’ve pressed the call button. Overall impression: meh! First time flying Austrian, but next time I’ll probably book with their competitors if prices are similar."
Pros: "Timing flight people working very nice and hospitality"
Cons: "Checked baggage very expensive."
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time flight. Nice refreshments"
Pros: "A bit more leg and knee room."
Cons: "The food was dreadful. We flew Austrian last month and the food was good. We try to stay hydrated on the flights and when I asked for water at the back of the plane, I was kindly given the water and another attendant grabbed the curtain and closed it making it plain I was not to be there. (I've never had that happen on any other flight.)"
Cons: "Sweet or saulty 'Snack' is a joke"
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 cabin was clean and comfortable. The crew was efficient and friendly. We departed early and arrived early and the entertainment was just what I wanted."
Cons: "Nothing - it was a great flight"
Pros: "Emergency exit row leg room. Good stuff."
Cons: "Flight time, slightly delayed departure."
Cons: "Boarded via stairs, requiring going down stairs to the tarmac, then up the boarding stairs, carrying our bags."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "I have the 'Economy Class' on the tickets. At check-in at the airport we wrote "economy light" on the boarding pass and want to pay for the first baggage. I check it on the original receipt I received by e-mail, there is ECONOMY CLASS and 1st baggage free of charge, another for a fee. So I do not understand and for two tickets I have paid 2 x 30 €."
Pros: "very short layover and my check luggage made it all the way home with no problems"
Pros: "The service and the overall flight quality, the pilot was very good!"
Cons: "Not enough snacks and no entertainment. Only an hour flight..."
Cons: "Austrian Air has really slipped in its food-product.. Lufthansa put out snacks (cookies etc; even small sandwiches to 'help yourself from' going from Atlanta to Frankfort which was nice). But not the case with Austrian The serving of it was fine. Restroom options are less than adequate too."
Cons: "Delay of 1 hour on a flight of 1 hour during lunch time and neither a snack during the flight."
Pros: "It was fast and comfortable"
Cons: "The delay in take-off"
Pros: "The B-767 is far superior to the B-777 in comfort; it is not so horribly crowded."
Cons: "Austrian check-in at VIE was a disaster. None of the machines could read my passport; and when you entered the data by alternative methods it STILL required a machine to read the passport--which it exactly what they were unable to do. Thus, it was a circular Catch 22. I went through six different lady agents working my way through the system, until they finally took my bag and let me go. They themselves said it was new to them and they did not fully grasp how it worked and they did not know why it did not accept me. SOFTWARE PEOPLE BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD."
Pros: "The overall flight wads excellent."
Cons: "Boarding on the return flight was poorly handled as there was no organized boarding."
Pros: "Made everything easy, stayed on time, clean."
Pros: "best blanket in any business class. should be sold on line."
Pros: "Flight was faster one hour then expected"
Cons: "Seat disconfort"
