Cons: "not enough food"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. I will never fly to Europe with anyone else. No joke. Best flying expierence ever."
Cons: "Honestly nothing. From start to finish great time."
Cons: "Agent changed our flight to Munich and sent as a email with with confirmation on July 10. involuntary. On July 20. I checked Lufthansa app and found that only flight that was shown was flight Toronto-Thunder Bay. After 3 hours of phoning I found that flight from Munich to Toronto wasn’t available for date that was given us in email. Only option was day earlier or later. Left us to take day earlier and we could not changed last flight( Toronto- Thunder Bay). We had to come on Aug 22. and stay in Toronto for 27 hours and than take a flight to Thunder Bay on Aug 23. We lost a day of our vacation, had to stay at hotel. Not good experience at all. We still don’t know whom to complain about that."
Pros: "It was nice trip and comfortable"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great attention to travelers who need assistance!!!it"
Cons: "Chaos boarding process"
Pros: "The crew is attentive and friendly The seats are flat-lay"
Cons: "The food is mediocre at best Seats are narrow"
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "The worst food I have ever had the displeasure of having in my mouth. The staff kept bumping into me and therefore did not sleep at all."
Pros: "Not a long flight, overhead lockers had space although I wasn't helped to find somewhere. Crew lovely otherwise."
Cons: "Boarding from a connecting flight wasn't enough time, esp as our duty free purchases were selected for additional screening. Food was identical to what we had been offered on previous flight, and the outbound one."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and great movie selection. They also had books and games for kids."
Cons: "The food was good but could have been better."
Pros: "Very friendly atmosphere at boarding gate & helpful crew on journey, plus surprisingly good food foe economy class made for positive feel to this trip. Add to it the fact I caught a movie I'd missed seeing at cinema plus even getting a few hours sleep, this was probably one of my better long haul flights in recent times."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and this is consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The salami sandwich provided was actually very good."
Cons: "The slimline seats were not very comfortable. I would hesitate to fly Lufthansa's narrow bodies for flights greater than 2 hours."
Cons: "I was waiting over 1 hr for my suitcase...."
Cons: "Quite satisfiedoverall"
Pros: "The food was better than average. Portions were good and it was tasty. Movie selection was also great and included many recent releases. They provided a hot towel service bedorw and after meals which I loved."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and the plane waited almost an hour after boarding was completed."
Pros: "The fact that I could have upgraded to premium economy. The space available in economy."
Cons: "The length of the flight but it is what it is. I couldn't upgrade to premium economy before arriving at the airport because of this being a code share flight with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Food is provided"
Cons: "Delayed 6 hours on the plane"
Pros: "Excellent service from staff on the flight"
Cons: "Long line-up in Frankfurt at Lufthansa Passport control . Could probably open up the third counter and not just one Business and one Economy? First meal ( Turkey) had something in it that blowded me up all the way to Vancouver! Not sure if it was the vegetables or?? Not nice if you can't walk around and also not great for your neighbor to the right and left. I usually don't experience this with my food that I cook or choose."
Pros: "I travel in so many airline but lufthasen is very good airline i want to travel again"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and plane was comfortable"
Cons: "The plane was way out of the terminal and I had asked for assistance which I had going and most of coming back until the last part getting on to the plane at Lufthansa no-one came at Birmingham either. I struggled to collect my case and walk through to the exit."
Pros: "Thank goodness the movies were good."
Cons: "Had to wait in 5 lines before someone could check our bags. no organization at boarding time. Just a free for all."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Seat wasn't the best in premium economy. Quite hard with little support."
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "free upgrade to business class :)"
Cons: "flight was delayed. personal works very slow"
Pros: "food was great"
Cons: "gate changed and we gad to take the bus to the plane which lead to sn delay and almost the plane couldn't leave before the airport closed. however, we eventually made it ..."
Cons: "Flight got canceled and never got new flight! Also never got money back!"
Pros: "Even though we were a little late boarding and taking off, we still arrived 15 minutes early. The on board snack was pretty good (cheese sandwich) and the coffee was lovely - good quality and just what I needed."
Cons: "huge plane, no space. painful."
Pros: "The female flight attendants always look great."
Cons: "Delays in Nice led to a narrow window for connection. More than ten people were left behind - doors practically closed in our faces - and Lufthansa was wholly unhelpful in rescheduling flights. Lines to speak with agents were absurd and then attendants had to take breaks instead of resolve issues. There were no solutions offered, only poor communication and an unwillingness to accommodate a significant number of customers who were inconvenienced. Finally, a "random inspection" led to a handful of passengers being surveyed by the German local police. Interestingly, a number of us were Hispanic Americans. The whole experience was extremely negative."
Pros: "When in the air crew attentive"
Cons: "Late boarding after allowing priority customer to board, Crew then took ages to start to finish boarding and taxi , Plane sent to furtherest runway, Made little time up,"
Pros: "Taking off was good"
Cons: "Landing was a little bit stressful. But still ok."
Pros: "Don't like anything"
Cons: "Bad food delivery crew members always restless mood"
Pros: "process of online check-in - fully automated so just few clicks on link (without entering booking number etc) which I received by email and I was ready to go"
Cons: "bus in Frankfurt"
Cons: "This Air Canada flight was operated by Lufthansa and was cancelled due to the strike. So, this means that I am still in Germany which is not the worst place in the world to be stuck, especially because my parents live here. So a few day longer are not a problem for me, but if it takes a week, it is not good because I am supposed to be at work and I am using up vacation I had planned to spent with my family."
Cons: "No boarding lines. Boarded late. I was not given enough time from my arriving flight. I had to spring the length of the airport and up and down stairs as the elevators had long lines. Maybe it was good it boarded late or I wouldn't have made it."
Cons: "Ticket written on Air Canada but Lufthansa was carrier. Not possible to check-in on line leaving very few choices for seating. Tried to check-in on Sunday for Monday flight -- system errors resulted and phone number provided by system only works M-Sat. My initial leg was on Iberia and they could not check me in for entire flight. Major scramble in Frankfort to resolve issues. Never again!"
Pros: "The crew was especially cheerful and helpful. The food was surprisingly good for airline food. I have always had a good experience on Lufthansa and this trip was no exception."
Cons: "Some of the movie choices were a little dated."
Cons: "Patronizing crew."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Body wants to slide forward."
Pros: "Crew inside the plane was lovely."
Cons: "Problems with the check-in online that made it impossible and cause that me and my partner had to seated not together. In the counters at the airport, we asked if it was possible a solution as I suffer with big anxiety and needed to be together my partner during the flight, and they answered us in an extremely rude way. Luckily we could change it with other passangers inside the plane by ourselves. Not a fault of Lufthansa but something that made the flight HORRIBLE was an extremelly smelly and very heavy guy seated next to me that used half of my seat and made me be really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "The flight was canceled"
Pros: "The service was excellent! ALL staff, great! Food, very good. Only complaint is too many people, 1 smaller planes would have been better."
Pros: "Flight was 10 minutes late departing but a short flight time led to us arriving in CDG on time."
Cons: "Baggage delivery to carousel 6 at CDG took over 40 minutes with delivery coming in small batches......the flight time was shorter!"
Pros: "Punctual departure, cabin crew were generally efficient and pleasant. The airshow (flight routing details) programme is one of the best I've experienced on any airline...."
Cons: "Boarding was a 'free-for-all' with no filtering of Economy passengers by zone or seat row. Less effective than Emirates in this regard. The hot snack offered before arrival at Denver was served in the final 50 minutes of the 10 plus hour flight. This meant that the service and tray collection, including the cabin preparation for landing was very rushed."
Cons: "This flight had a lactose free meal but not gluten free."
Too many delays from start to finish of the trip
Pros: "It is a no frills airline. Cabin crew were friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment, no food"
Pros: "Overall not bad at all :)"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "This was an older plane with no upgrades including no Internet and the very small poor quality Monitors in the back of the seat in front of each passenger. The seats were very uncomfortable. The transfer in Vancouver after customs involved going outside in the cold to and from the bus. There was no warning. The customs area red jacketed help personnel told us that it was just as fast to go throught the general customs are instead of using our Nexus cards and this turned out to take forever. So very disappointing."
Cons: "Better communication at all levels. Remember that the overall strength of a chain is only as strong as its weakest link and this trip had many weak links for us making it a challenge."
Pros: "The crew were excellent. The seat was not very comfortable - it had a very firm seat cushion. The flight time was about 5 hours so it was OK. I adjusted to the feel of the chair. We had seats next to an exit door so we had more leg room which was nice."
Cons: "The seat was not very comfortable. The seat cushion was quite firm. I sat for 15 hours on a Qantas seat which was quite a bit more comfortable. There was no onboard entertainment unless you had a cell phone and could download the West Jet app. I was spoiled by my flight with Qantas from Vancouver to Sydney. They had touch screens on the backs of the seats so you could choose movies, radio, games, and flight info and the seats were much more comfortable."
Cons: "baggage tag system at CDG Pairs was lame"
Cons: "Entertainment was poor. Lost reception on most channels and audio was poor/ awful. Connecting flight from Toronto to YVR was late as as result of leaving late from NFL. Better scheduling."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Very informed process of why delays were happening."
Pros: "Crew were genuinely always smiling"
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable because of the head rest that is attached to the seat. However the staff and crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "Didn’t make my flight"
Cons: "If the app didn’t send me a message saying my flight had been delayed when it was in fact on time."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and there’s no tv for entertainment."
Pros: "This flight was fine. It was utilitarian. Did not stand out one way or another."
Cons: "Serving with patience. Not being late all the time for boarding and for off-boarding."
Cons: "Choosing my seats without paying extra."
Pros: "I had an unexpected upgrading to a premium seat, that was great for food, wine, & comfort."
Cons: "It was cold, I wish they offered blankets. We also had a delay once we landed, watched another plane come in & disembark while we waited. And there was a huge luggage delay of 45 minutes while we all waited at the carousel for our bags. I’ve never had to wait that long before."
Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "Sensible ticket price"
Pros: "The staff were super helpful and friendly, and the accommodations were clean and decently comfortable!"
Cons: "The food was very pricy and not that great. Also the boarding took a long time and seemed a little unorganized."
Pros: "The flight left on time, boarding was orderly, I got a window seat."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable (very little leg and arm room, chairs didn't recline at all), WiFi was unavailable."
Pros: "Great service when checking in. Flight on time and comfortable."
Pros: "I did not like being told flight duration by ground crew and pilot that was wrong. They said it will board at x hour and flight Mie is 4 hrs 20minutes. That makes one think departure plus flight time equals arrival. NO ONE MENTIONED OVE 1 hour taxi time. Getting in four hours late, BTW the rain delay was not really accurate. There was no rain until after we were due to depart! Not enough fuel as loaded so after circling the had to land inYYZ ZTO REFUEL.

Cons: "Haven’t yet reached our destination, it’s our honeymoon and would have hoped to have got ther by now instead of which we are having to layover in Vancouver until the next flight because of delays on first Leg of journey we missed connecting flight"
Pros: "The crew was kind when they gave me an extra bag of pretzels to calm my rolling stomach on a flight that while over 4 hours long does qualify for even a decent sized bag of pretzels."
Cons: "I think the seats on westjet are ridiculous, are they smaller than other planes. I was practically in the lap of the person next to me. I'm 5'7 and I couldn't even rest my head on my knees to stop the extreme motion sickness. I couldn't even finish my flight today because I couldn't stand the nausea and I couldn't rest in a seat 2 sizes too small for a regular sized person. I had to lay down and when it didn't subside I had to find accommodation. I will never fly with westjet again. But thanks you know for the pretzels."
Pros: "Thought the flight left a little late, we still arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable. Though I'm not fat there was little room to move left or right there was however ample leg room considering I'm fairly tall. Though the flights are quite expensive no meal is included., only drinks and snacks."
Cons: "It took several hours for the decision to be made to cancel our original flight from PV to Van, and when the final decision was made, the complete lack of sympathy or communication came as a shock. No one informed us why we were moving to another terminal or that our flight had actually been cancelled and we would be staying another night in Mexico for another two hours. Getting our hotel voucher and transportation to the venue took another several hours. (Sorry Westin, but you also receive poor marks on your food services. Your front desk people were great though!) The following morning we were not informed that there would be no food service on the flight, so my kids were starving by the time we touched down in Vancouver. The ordeal was exhausting and when we finally arrived in Vancouver we almost missed our connecting flight because of a huge error in off-loading our luggage. It shouldn’t take over an hour to receive your luggage. Again, the communications break down led to hightened anxiety and stress. The whole horrible journey home with WestJet made the loveliness of my actual holiday pale into the background. I was very disappointed in WestJet as I’ve had fabulous experiences in the past. If possible, I will avoid flying with them again any time soon."
Cons: "The washrooms had no water from their taps"
Pros: "The flight and the seating was comfortable. Food served was fine too."
Cons: "Well, they mixed up my check-in luggage during transit. As a result it got delayed and I had to spend the night without it. Although, I was informed about this miss when I landed in Vancouver, the team did not seem to feel particularly bad about it. Also, the process of getting reimbursed for the predefined expenditure allowance needs to be more efficient. Ideally, in such cases, the airlines should not only refund the check-in fee, but also provide a prepaid card to make any urgent purchases. Their current process requires one to bear the expenses initially, scan/click and send the original receipts and await a response from their baggage team. I am waiting to hear back from them on my submission."
Pros: "I liked the stewardess. She was very friendly and funny. I was booked for row 2 isle seat, first on first off.. No one else with me , had the row to myself. Comfortable seats. It was the Plus seats."
Cons: "No entertainment on board. You had to have already down loaded West Jets app. Didn't know that. Last time I flew WJ there was intertanment. I asked before I left Canada if there was in flight duty free. From LAX to YVR. I was told yes. So didn't purchase any. Only to find out, a big fat no. Haven't for quit awhile.Super. Landed at YVR, went to WJ to find out about luggage. Told me I have to get a hold of Qantas. They had nothing to do with it. Went to Qantas was sent to a place that was closed. Two days later got a call from WJ asking why I didn't pick up my luggage. I told him the story. He kept saying why didn't I go to them. Because I was told it was Qantases fault. Got luggage 2 days later, damaged. I'm thinking maybe the case fell off the conveyor belt while loading in Melbourne ."
Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "it was a very noisy flight with a lot of children. Asked the crew to let me have tablet for 9.99$ but since I am a tourist and have no credit card they could not sale it to me."
Pros: "Great food glad I preordered. Great flight and crew"
Cons: "Didn’t know I needed to download the WestJet app in advance - wish there was a way to download it locally from a server on the plane and/or receive a message in advance suggesting to download. I have now downloaded it after I got off the plane and looking forward to trying it out on the return flight"
Pros: "Our flight moved up one hour from our original booking, which wasn't ideal, though we were rerouted, transferring in Calgary rather than Vancouver. This should have saved us time, so we didn't mind."
Cons: "But then we sat on the tarmac in Toronto for an hour and a half, which cause us to miss our connecting flight in Calgary. In the end, we got home later than planned. The flight was fine, but the changes and delays were frustrating."
Pros: "Seats are fairly comfortable. Everything mostly went smoothly."
Cons: "Cannot use the in-flight entertainment system due to not having the WestJet app. Not able to download the app in flight. WestJet should at least provide a $0.99 internet option for 5 minutes, or allow free internet access to the App store for a few minutes to download the WestJet app."
Pros: "We took off, we flew, we landed and walked away."
Cons: "5hrs and 9min flight time. Add boarding and alighting at the other end - adds up to over 6 hours travel time. WestJet will supply you with a coffee or tea and a cookie, pretzel or cheese stick packet. Wow! You get to watch fair selection of movies etc on your own phone or tablet - IF you have downloaded the app BEFORE you leave the terminal.Wow! If you need to wait for the bathroom the stewardess tells you to wait in the aisle behind row 3... really? So I can't just stand here in the galley and wait... no sir, behind row 3. Best advice - fly Air Canada - these guys do not deserve your money!"
Pros: "I had my mom who needed wheel chair assistance, and an agent helped push her and made sure she was comfortable. I couldnt have asked for anything more. Very appreciative of the considerate service and help."
Cons: "The pilot on the Honolulu flight to Vancouver left some documents at the hotel and he had to go back to get them therefore delaying our flight to vancouver. This caused a lot of passengers connection flights delayed and rebooked to another flight later on that day. No apologies or compensation of time wasted was given. Food vouchers would have been nice. The new boarding passes provided also pushed most of us passengers back to the last seats at the back of the plane.. which was a very uncomfortable experience."
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding"
Cons: "No tv screen"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Pros: "It was a comfortable experience, the flight crew were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The lack of space beneath the seat in front of me can be frustrating, especially when one is required to push their small bag underneath it."
Pros: "Safe and peaceful flight"
Cons: "A little bit late"
Pros: "Didn't realize that I had purchased a Wrstjet Plus that slowed me to get work done"
Cons: "Having to be re screened between LA flight and Victoria flight at YVR"
Pros: "Go from point a to point b"
Cons: "Westjet will nickel and dime you for everything. Did a +9h flight from Vancouver to London and no meal is included during the whole flight. They keep trying to upsale you for everything. Not only is the food expensive it is also real garbage. Flight was delayed by 75 minutes and nearly missed my connection. Of course no checked baggage is included in your already expensive ticket. You have to fork in another 30$ for the privilege of checking luggage. WestJet pretends to offer 200-300$ cheaper plane tickets compared to the competition, but this is false. I found plenty of other flights for same or even cheaper prices with quality airline companies like Lufthansa or Air Canada that include a meal and checked baggage and other perks, but in my case I had already booked. I really recommending you looking for other airline companies for any flight that is not short haul. WestJet's slogan is an airline company with owner that care... Whatever the hell that means. Maybe someone can explain? WestJet brags about it's outstanding customer service while at the same time cutting every corner possible on service. Kind of a contradiction."
Pros: "Haven't flown Westjet in years. Don't know why but I don't have sore kneecaps, was served great coffee, the stewards always smiled and had funny things to say, and the gate keepers were happy and honest. I'm going to be a frequent flyer now for sure."
Cons: "I didn't like....um....nope. no complaints"
Cons: "I'm a bit disappointed by the services provided by Westjet: 1) I never received the confirmation of my fight/booking from Westjet; 2) I was not aware that the connecting from LA to SJ and SJ to LA were operated by different companies therefore I was not able to check in or even to check the gate information at the airport. I almost missed my flight from SJ to LA in the early morning 3) at the SJ airport, I was not aware that the flight from SJ to LA was operated by Delta not American airline. However, the Westjet customer services 1-888 number listed in your Kayak confirmation was not a correct number. I even tried to look up another customer services number of Westjet by searching the Westjet website, the number I found was not in service neither. I almost missed my flight from SJ to LA 4) At the LA airport I was told that I was not able to board the flight because I did not have the Canadian ETA. they said they would pull my checked luggages and flight them with my re-scheduled flight and will be shipped to the final destination Vancouver, Canada. when I arrived Vancouver, both suitcases were not arrived with my flight. One arrived with my original flight and the second were missing. The agent could not even tell me where the suitcase was. Moreover, the second did not arrive the time I was told it should arrive. My second suitcase was not allocated even before I left Vancouver to Europe one day after my travel. 5) No one responded to the luggage services number provided in the document. I could only successfully login to the link for the checking the status after I returned home in Brussels. 6) I was told that the second suitcase will be delivered to my home in Europe by another company. Currently I'm still waiting for my second suitcase."
Pros: "Direct flight from my hometown of Palm Springs Ca to Vancouver Canada"
Cons: "Left late and I arrived 35 min late had to go through customs and didn't make it from international to domestic. Rebooked a flight 3 hours later for $75."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"
Cons: "They lost my sleeping bag before my backpacking trip forcing me to buy a new one and would not reimburse me."
Pros: "Amazing crew who made us feel very comfortable as we traveled with our 9month old daughter. Westjet stands out because of their commitment to service"
Pros: "The crew was nice, however, they also give varying information. We had frequent flier tickets and when I checked in, the screen stated no extra charge for check in bags and I also called the customer service. When I got to the airport in Hamburg, they wanted to charge me $100 for a bag. I asked the lady behind the counter to call the main office because she said she has no authority to change the fee. I called the main office and had the person in office tell the agent at the airport that it is a mistake and that there is no charge."
Cons: "Better communication between all aspects of the company."
Pros: "Love the 757 fleet of Icelandair. Professional crew."
Cons: "Every flight was late and no effort to do anything about it. Flying in the mid 400’s turned a 1hr 40min layover into a run for the connection. Far be it to use more fuel to deliver on your schedule. I’ve been on too many flights where the pilot found the gas pedal to make up for things on the ground to not think this is Icelandair policy and therefore will have a good chance of happening to me again with them."
Cons: "Warm bus for the transfer from one plane to the next"
Pros: "Everything was very good except that it would be nice to include a small free snack with the drink, ie. Pretzels."
Cons: "The worst part was that we waited an hour for our luggage afterwards. This caused us to almost miss our ferry connection (last one of the day). Also when we finally got our luggage it was soaking wet (I had a backpack and my clothes inside was wet!) so clearly the luggage had been standing out in the rain for quite some time."
Cons: "Small complaint but the movie selection was not very diverse & would have liked to have known before hand that there would be a charge for good on a longish flight from YVR to KEF."
Pros: "The cabin crew were all attentive and pleasant. The media offerings are excellent, and I was entertained throughout the flight."
Cons: "The seat bottom felt flat and hard fairly early in the flight."
Pros: "The plane was on time and very clean"
Cons: "Nowhere in the fair information supplied by kayak that you would have to pay for both food and bags. I would never have selected this fare had I known we would end up spending an extra $800 for checking bags! Iceland air is clean and efficient but all you were given is a Dixie cup size of a drink"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and accommodating. The plane was a brand new Boeing 767 with comfortable seats."
Cons: "More movie options."
Cons: "No internet availability on any Icelander flight we took (4) all advertised they had this service available"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful"
Cons: "They layover was by far the worst."
Pros: "All the crews are not friendly, the seats are comforble."
Cons: "No foods for 7 hours flight. water, juice, coffer are free."
Pros: "Crew had good attitude"
Cons: "Cold, late"
Cons: "From top to bottom, this airline is extremely incompetent and should be seen as nothing more than a super cheap way to fly. Avoid if possible."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Boarding in Kevlavik."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful. Plane was new and very clean. Had a new plane from Iceland to Boston which was very clean."
Cons: "Seats could have been a bit more comfortable but were better in way home since it was a new plane. Space under middle seats is not great but luckily had window seats for flight home. Middle row upper storage is very limited. Almost had to check my bags on flights to Iceland and Germany."
Cons: "Provide food on an 8 hour flight"
Pros: "Clean comfortable airplanes"
Cons: "Price looks good, but when you add all additional charges not much of a bargain for longer duration travel through Iceland -seat choice costs extra, bags cost extra and food must be purchased. Planes departed late and arrived later."
Cons: "Food options or any food at all. Pricing is also very expensive. Boarding is rediculous. Slow, inefficient."
Pros: "Having to bring your own headphones"
Cons: "Seats that can recline more, it will make it easiee if you like to try to sleep."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant throughout."
Cons: "Very squished quarters for a seven hour flight! Several couples were separated and had to reconfigure to sit together. No room under the seat in the middle row. What happened to free meals on international flights over 5hrs or so? Terrible airport management with a crush of international flights all leaving in a small space and no warning on the arriving flight to Reykjavik about how to prepare for the connecting flight. One of the main restaurants was closing at 17:00 and had run out of some dishes at 15:30."
Pros: "More direct route to destination."
Cons: "No food served and excessive luggage fees."
Pros: "Very friendly crew water bottles, on time or early"
Cons: "Sets not comfortable, no more bags, Kevlavik getting to crowded"
Pros: "Crew, comfort, entertainment were great"
Cons: "Customer service strictly online, confusing, doesn’t always work"
Pros: "the crew , the flight was smooth, on time , easy to board"
Cons: "that after a flight to frankfurt and no problem wthj my luggage on board when we left frankfurt to go back to boston it was all of a sudden a problem with my onboard case , which was not handled very well , they were nice but i felt singled out and worried about my luggage being left behind , but it all went smooth after all"
Cons: "flight was delayed an hour, another hour to get luggage... main problem, however, was that once i was at FRA airport, the added a $105 surcharge on my luggage because supposedly it was an "economy light" ticket that doesn't allow checked luggage. It wasn't on the way over and it doesn't say anywhere on the ticket. To make things worse, none of the people at the counter were actually Iceland Air employee, so noone was able or willing to tell me anything about this (quote from employee "everything I tell you will be used against me" not sure if she was flippant or scared) Anyway, watch out for them screwing you over where they can"
Pros: "Iceland had been a pleasure the last few times I flew internationally - consistently one time, friendly staff and quick layovers, never once over the last 8-12 flights experienced a delay or maintenance issues. Really impressive !!"
Cons: "A light snack or bag of crackers or so would be a nice touch for the grown ups. kids her a jmnup meal, adults can only buy them. I realize the fares are cheap but I feel some light snack options could be added."
Pros: "After you accepting the fact that any food on this international flight must be purchase, the rest was comfortable and efficiently maintained."
Cons: "KEF is terrible. The food concessions have unbearably long lines at the checkout. The possibly only toilet is is down a flight of steps and the lines are long. I will pay more in the future to avoid KEF. The Frankfurt airport waiting areas, both outside the gate area and inside, had totally inadequate device charging outlets."
Pros: "This was our first flight with Iceland Air and we kind of looked forward to it. On the way oversease we were immediately rebooked onto Swiss Air, before arriving at the airport, because Iceland Air had a delay and knew we would miss our connecting flight to Germany. We were very impressed by this and very happy with Swiss Air, also. On the way back we liked the roomier plane and the relative punctuality of the flights. Our luggage arrived fine and quickly at the end destination, despite the short layover, which often leads to lost luggage."
Cons: "Our biggest complaint is that Iceland Air does not offer meals as part of your ticket on its flights. They expect you to upgrade (and pay) for 'economy comfort' in order to get the meals and seating included in most other regular economy tickets. I don't think that being on a 6.5 hour flight (and a 3.5 hour flight immediately before without chance of making puchases at the airport in between, due to their delay) without a meal being included in your ticket is acceptable practice. They had a meny from which you could purchase food, things like baguette with ham/cheese, salad, oatmeal, instant noodles etc. But the prices for these cheap cafeteria options were insane. From the cheapest ($7 for a small instant oatmeal) to $16 for a salad or small main course you would have to spend an additional 25-35$ per meal per person to get the usual airplane meal that all other airlines I know of include (2 per overseas flight). We did go hungry, eat candy, bought one little oatmeal and pretty much will avoid Iceland Air for that reason in the future. We thought it was outreageous to be asked to spend this amount of money or go without food for over 9 hours."
Pros: "The plane was large and spacious. Crew members were very nice and pleasant."
Cons: "No complimentary snack"
Cons: "The aircraft was too small- was kicked off the flight and rebooked for a different airline hours later"
Pros: "The on flight movies were nice."
Cons: "Both flights were overbooked, there was only one person in line for checking bags, which we stood for over an hour in and barely had time to make it to our flight."
Pros: "I enjoyed the leg room. There is also enough room to comfortably walk down the aisle between seats. I appreciated the little bottle of water handed out as I entered the aircraft. The crew was quite friendly."
Cons: "Icelandair apparently has no schedule they stick to. We were consistently late leaving the airport, making us miss EVERY connection. I was not aware this was a no frills flight, meaning exactly that! No food or snacks, even for overnight flights. They charged $10 for a small, cold sandwich IF you preordered. Other than the water given upon entry, drinks were doled out sparingly, just a tiny cup per passenger."
Pros: "Good crew, plenty of leg room"
Cons: "One of the few airlines that does not provide a meal without extra charge"
Pros: "Comfortable nice entertainment system. Great price (but no food)."
Cons: "Terminal 2. Has few amenities while waiting."
Pros: "From checking to arrival my experience was bad bad"
Cons: "Only Internet from Frankfurt to Iceland"
Pros: "Customer service was amazing. Always smiling and making sure I had everything I needed for a comfortable flight"
Cons: "Lost my luggage on my arrival to Germany. It was however delivered to my place of stay two days later which was fast!"
Pros: "2 free checked bags, nice flight attendants"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding took FOREVER!"
Cons: "No food. Just 70 min to change the plane. 5 aircrafts to samé time to USA (NYC JFK, Newark, Boston, Minneapolis,...) Too much people - not good organized"
Pros: "Crew was excellent! Nice experience in economy"
Pros: "They provided pillows, movies, and drinks."
Cons: "Everything else cost something: headphones, snacks/food, internet."
Cons: "Really a surprisingly low quality airline."
Pros: "Plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Keflavik Airport, where all transfers are done, is a MESS. There are too few jetways, so you wind up waiting for a BUS to take you to the terminal in the COLD. Once through immigration, you are dumped directly in to the DUTY FREE SHOP that you can NOT avoid. Imagine being late for your next flight, and having to steer your carry on baggage around crowded store isles! Then, you manage to find your gate...which is an effort in itself, as there are few signs...and there is ONE agent checking boarding passes of this massive crowd that is not lined up at ALL. Once in the air, Iceland Air performs well. But on the ground, it is nothing less than a MESS."
Pros: "Nice crew, great service"
Pros: "Everything was great. Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "No food provided. Not even pretzels. You have to buy it and it is not reasonable. No water fountains at the airport."
Pros: "Icelandic programs available on the TV, suer friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Could not get Wi Fi to work."
Pros: "I love the beautiful interior lighting, the more spacious seating, and the free in-flight entertainment! Icelandair also has a separate area off Frankfurt international which was much cleaner and nicer."
Cons: "No potable water in the Frankfurt terminal."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Liked the Northern Lights show. Check-in, boarding was super smooth, as was changing planes and getting through passport control in Iceland. My plane came in 20 minute late, and I only had 20 minutes to make my connecting flight, which waited for me - amazing!!! Thank you."
Cons: "I would like to see more vegetarian meal options, other than asking for the salad w/o meat."
Pros: "The extra legroom in the Classic Package Seats."
Cons: "The snacks where a little on the dull tasteless side."
Cons: "Did you know the flight was changed?? It moved from Nov 24 to Nov 25. I was never informed of this change that was supposedly made in October.. Even you (kayak) didn’t know bc you still think I took the flight that I booked on your site! I was forced to rebook with another airline and will be expecting a refund and then some and possibly dispute the charge all together."
Pros: "We upgraded to first class and everything was perfect!!"
Pros: "Super friendly"
Cons: "Maybe a hot meal?"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Starters, main course, etc where very odd combination of flavors and therefore not at all appealing. Don't provide beverage service in Business outside of meal times. Seats good but space is restricted. Feel closed in."
Pros: "Boarding efficiency although the ... see below. Loved the salmon wrap and cheese 'n' biscuits"
Cons: "flight was delayed at check in and on the tarmac - 40 minutes. No explanation for this"
Pros: "Nice seat (I paid €48 euro for more legroom) and the food was decent and the movie selection good."
Cons: "TAP's boarding procedure is a bit of a mess. We had to wait an extended period of time to board and no information was given. Also keep in mind you have to pay extra for luggage, which is a real deal-breaker when traveling for extended periods of time."
Pros: "New plane, clean, entertainment system was state of the art."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very nice. Seemed to not want to be there. Service was nearly not existent."
Pros: "The Tap flight was an hour late causing me to miss my connecting flight with Tap and my car rental. Attendant NO help. Sent me wrong place!!."
Cons: "Better flight attendants who know how to help. Never TAP again!!"
Pros: "the crew did really made sure we had what we needed."
Cons: "Should have made an announcement that the 3g cellular coverage was turned on. Went on in the middle of the flight and had no idea. My phone was in the overhead bin and I thought it was off. When I landed I had an outrageous fee. Should be given a choice to use it or not."
Pros: "Nothing stood out. Legroom was ok."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and poorly managed."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Be on time and that they dont loose my bags! Wait for and extra 2 hours in the arrival airport because of the lost"
Pros: "Good crew, new Airbus 321 charging possible."
Cons: "There was an undisclosed $120 baggage fee. The food was horrible and made me sick. We left nearly two hours late."
Pros: "Mechanical delays leaving London, missed flight connection to New York, now TAP wants to charge me for rescheduling!"
Pros: "On this prop plane, the takeoff and landing was exceptionally smooth. Again, the crew gave outstanding service."
Cons: "All was perfect! Thank you."
Pros: "Service was good and the food was better than average."
Cons: "Paying extra for business class so you can sleep just isn't worth it with TAP. We had an older plane, showing its age, and the seats did not go completely flat. So, I kept slipping down and my feet jammed into the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Flight left approx. 20mins early, good service and efficient handling by crew."
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "Delayed transport to flight, tiny non-reclining seats. Food offering mediocre and had to flag down flight attendant just to get water they we're giving to everyone but some of us apparently."
Pros: "Food was above average"
Cons: "Wasn't told that baggage wasn't included in my fee. Had to pay 170 Euros at the airport to check our two bags. Really really frustrating, and beyond an exorbitant price to charge for bags..."
Cons: "We could not reserve a gluten free meal to accommodate allergies."
Cons: "The plane was very small service was not good and the crew were not that friendly"
Cons: "Book wheelchair assistance for flight, all went well. At destination Lisbon, no wheelchair no assistance very poor service."
Cons: "Had to check 2 of our luggages, and it cost $95 per piece. Never flown an airline where I had to pay more than $50 per piece. Also carryon has to be less than 8 kg. Our small luggage that we had to check never had any problems with any other airlines about being a carryon but since it was over 8 kg, it had to be checked. Flight was short but no entertainment screen to watch or listen to music. Will not be flying with airline ever again."
Pros: "was a direct flight"
Cons: "we were made to exit down a slepery stairs and pack ourselves like sadines on a bus to the terminal..not good!"
Cons: "Where to start. No soap to wash your hands in the WC. Air conditioning dripping water to a seat next to us. They run out of on food option we wanted. The flight to Lisbon was delayed. The plain was dirty. One of out seats the entertainment system did not work. We alerted the crew, they did not do anything to remediate these problems. Only bad experience of the trip. Portugal deserves a better airline than this one. Last the best of all, $90 dollars per bag we checked in, so we spent $360 dollars just to carry our luggage."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Chairs not reclinable in "green" section. What is this, a caste system?!?"
Pros: "Very gentle staff. Good food and service. And I will visit Lisbon next time."
Cons: "Too early in the morning. A better connection in Lis wil lhelp"
Pros: "None of the videos about Portugal worked!!"
Pros: "There was good variety of films and food was decent."
Cons: "(1) TAP has terrible customer service and support. Was told on check-in that flight did not include checked luggage which is bizzare/unreal for an international flight especially since I also paid to upgrade my ticket. Even in explaining to me the person on the phone was rude. This was very disappointing as I had such an amazing trip to end on this sour note. (2) The boarding process took forever. They made us line up about 45 minutes before we actually boarded. So we were all standing around as opposed to being seated in waiting area. We did not board until after our take-off time. (3) Seats were really tight, uncomfortable and don't recline much."
Pros: "The Magnum ice cream was a great touch."
Cons: "We thought that $35 per bag is a bit too much when other airlines are $25."
Cons: "5 hrs delay and missed all connecting flights. Airline initially rescheduled flight 2 days later. Called Kayak and got no support. Kayak agent told us to keep pushing the airline. After 2 hrs of "working" with the airline, we were able to fly into Madrid the following day. Had to spend extra money for hotel room and car rental in Madrid because our final destination was Sevilla. Will never work with Azores or Kayak again. BTW, did we mention that while "working" with Azores to reschedule flight, we were booked to fly into an island off of Africa. Luckily, we followed up online with the changed itinerary."
Pros: "On time, excellent food"
Cons: "Business barely distinguishable from economy, except for the food which was excellent"
Cons: "Their short flight from Frankfurt to Lisbon was not that comfortable. Seats were thin, close together. My knees were jammed against the seat in front of me. Glad the international flight was more comfortable. Somehow we did not get the memo that there was a 0 baggage allowance for an international flight. Most give 1 or two bags free. So when we had to pay 80 euros for each bag it started off our trip with TAP a lot disappointed. We still have to fly back and we can go online and pay before hand and get it for 45 euros each. Increased out ticket prices by 205 euros. Will make me take a second thought before I book with TAP again."
Cons: "No vegetarian option The last seats mean can't lean backwards when someone in front goes backwards :("
Cons: "They gave my 70-year old mother only a few hours notice that they were changing her one-stop four-hour 6AM flight into an 8AM multi stop 14-hour marathon. In fact, she was already asleep when they changed her flight, so she was already at the airport when she found out about the change. To do this to a 70-year old woman is reprehensible. Worse, after 2-hours with customer service, nobody there made any real attempt to remedy the situation or offer any compensation. Worst airline experience EVER."
Pros: "Overall flight was great and crew very polite"
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about it!"
Pros: "The staff was very nice. Only bad incident was the misinformation on getting the D Tax. We went early to the airport to do it but could not get it because of erroneous information form the check in agent."
Cons: "When we checked our bags the check in agent did not let us take out bags after getting the boarding pass so we could get the D Tax refund at Customs. She said it was not necessary. She was wrong. French customs wanted to see the merchandise which we no longer had. When we complained at TAP we were told do it in Lisbon. Again in Lisbon we could not get the D tax because that custom agent wanted to see the merchandise which was being transferred to our Lisbon - Newark flight. We loss refunds of over $400. This problem ruined a perfect trip."
Pros: "New plane. Great service."
Cons: "Seats are very small. No entertainment system."
Pros: "the crew were amazingly warm, professional and attentive."
Cons: "no food option without a dead animal in it"
Cons: "Not much leg room."
Pros: "The flight crew were efficient"
Cons: "Legroom was cramped"
Pros: "It was s a good value especially as a Star Alliance Gold flyer."
Cons: "No vegetarian option for sandwich snack."
Pros: "They squeezed a meal into a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "Loved the customer service. Very friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "The plane was making the strangest noises!! Something with the landing gear perhaps? Very high pitched noise. Also, the boarding was horrendous. No warning of the fact that we would have such a long trek to the airplane and in the rain, no less. However, I was grateful that we ended up taking a larger plane to accommodate all of the luggage. But then the stewardess had to spray something in the air around the bins, I found that to be very strange."
Pros: "Good planes! Entertainment is modern, food good, service great. Boarding fast, planeson time. Special thanks to TAP taking off from Boston on 12/29/16 with snow and even heavy snowing. I was lucky did hey stuck in Boston. The only weird part was that i was not able to pick seats without a fee even 24 hours prior flight."
Pros: "Nothing was to like."
Cons: "The men who were working the boarding were absolute brutes. Rude, hostile, completely unprofessional. Treated many people horribly and then acted smugly upon boarding."
Pros: "Crew was kind, not robots. They disciplined the several children running in the aisles throughout the flight as their parents did not. Medal of bravery and honor to them! D"
Cons: "Dirty cabin - floor was filthy with food and wrappers when we boarded. Did not use bathroom as assumed it was same."
Pros: "Nice Crew"
Cons: "More space between seats, better air conditioning."
Cons: "crew and knowledge on parent control for video, kids safety jacket not distributed and no knowledge or help on connecting flights and no knowledge on car seat use in flight (i was told it was NOT safe to have the child in the car seat for take off and landing)"
Cons: "Boarding was terrible, took a couple hours with a huge line and shuttles. They lost my bag and I won't have it for a couple days (supposedly), seats were very uncomfortable, no vegetarian food option and crew shrugged when I asked. Plane was unbearably hot when we boarded."
Pros: "Direct route is the main benefit to flying condor, other than the that the airline offers below average customer service and amenities. Even my kids say Condor is the worst airline."
Cons: "No kids movies even for purchase is unacceptable for a 10 hour flight during the high season when families travel!"
Pros: "I was able to upgrade to business class at a reasonable rate. It was well worth it and the ticketing agent made it as easy as possible."
Cons: "There could have been someone at the gate sooner to answer questions or complete upgrade transactions."
Cons: "for a tall person the seat spacing is torture for a 10h flight. at the least offer affordable extra legroom. I'd be fine paying 10% more for 10% more space, but not hundreds of dollars"
Pros: "The price and nonstop flight was the only positive."
Cons: "O am gluten free vegan due to medical issues and they were not able to accommodate me. I could have vegan or gluten free but not both and I would have to pay $18. How hard is it to do gluten free pasta with marinara sauce or veggies over rice? Most of the crew was rude and vary hard to understand and their English was not very good and my German is not very good so it was difficult to communicate. The seats have very little padding and zero lumbar support, thank goodness they give you a mini pillow otherwise my back would have been so bad I wouldn't have been able to walk! I would NOT recommend Condor and will never fly them again!"
Pros: "The music selection."
Cons: "Seating is very tight even for a petite 5’1” person like me. My boyfriend was 5’8” and he was definitely uncomfortable with the lack of leg space. If the passengers in front of you decided to put their seats back? You’ve lost even more space and feel closed in. Thankfully the aisle seat next to us was empty so we tried to stretch out a little bit without spilling into the seat entirely. Entertainment was eh. Two movies from the early 2000s (Alvin & the Chipmunks and What happens in Vegas) and an episode of Tom & Jerry and an episode of Modern Family but from Season 5? Not great if you’ve never watched the series.. About their hospitality... My boyfriend and I were completely disregarded and ignored by a stewardess with blonde hair and thick black glasses... Flight: DE2102 that left September 8th from Frankfurt to San Juan. We received our meals from her AFTER she handed meals to the people behind us - this was not the case for other passengers that spoke German, everyone’s meals up until ours was handed in order.. When it was time to pick up the trays she skipped us both times (with our trays ready in our hands to hand to her) - I watched her pick up the trays from the passengers before and after us. My boyfriend did say “Excuse me” but she ignored him - she probably would’ve paid attention if he asked in German.. She even looked at us as she passed by which blew my mind. Her coworker on the other side had to pick up her slack and was very kind enough to pick up our trays even though we weren’t his assigned aisle. It confused me because she was so pleasant with the German passengers but ignored us even when we made eye contact and smile for her attention.. I hate to say this because I give everyone the benefit of the doubt but to be honest I felt discriminated.. My boyfriend is German (speaks fluent German and English) but I felt because of my ethnicity (Asian) he had to suffer for that.. I felt terrible that he was suffering because of me. No one wants that for their significant other or anyone. Another occasion was when another stewardess was handing us our drinks. My boyfriend’s cup was broken and as she passed it over me it spilled all over my shirt. I did gasp from surprise. No apologies whatsoever.. She seemed impatient and grabbed the cup back over only to put another cup under it. I asked for a Sprite but they only had Cola or Fanta so I was totally okay with Cola “Cola bitte”. My German isn’t that great but I did hear her coworker ask why I gasped and she told her that it was because I was surprised they didn’t have Sprite - very untrue. I was shocked and I couldn’t respond. I have never been so disappointed in a flight and the hospitality. I am very forgiving if an incident happens once or twice, but when I see it happen in front of me over and over and over again? That’s where my tolerance unfortunately crumbles. I was on the verge of tears by the end of the flight. I hope I never fly Condor again."
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and efficient. We left and landed on time."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was crabby and didn't want to provide a drink for my husband and myself, so we just dealt with a different attendant."
Pros: "Service on flight was second to none."
Cons: "Check in at Frankfurt Germany was like Cattle. Very Poor"
Pros: "We got there with no safety issues. That is about all the good I can think of. Also a miracle our bags made it since the delay due to Condor made us miss our connection. The best part of the flights were when we switched to Luftansa controlled planes."
Cons: "Don't confuse their logo with Luftansa. They are far from it. Known for delays, disruption and breakdowns. Our flight was delayed 4-5 hours on the way to Europe because the food cart didn't fit. Then a delay of 2 hours on way back to US because 3 of the 6 bathrooms didn't work. Had to wait in this prison like gate with hardly any AC and then take a bus to the plane. DO YOUR RESEARCH. This airline survives on those who don't do their homework(Like me) and those who don't take others reviews seriously. Spend the extra money and get an airline that is consistent. Check out Condor's on time rate..yikes."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and we were not boarded. The personnel at the gate desk asked us to wait in the hallway outside the gate until further notification. When the plane was almost finished boarding, I went to the desk to find out whether we would get on. They admitted they had "forgotten about us". We then took the arduous trek through passport control back out to the main terminal to rebook. The only option we were presented was a flight the next day, instead of our 9h direct flight from Frankfurt to Seattle this was going to be a 19h flight via a long layover in Chicago. I tried hard to work with the agent to find another option, and asked for the supervisor. She told me "this isn't going to help you". Horrible horrible."
Cons: "An extra fee for in-flight entertainment on international flight? In route to Frankfurt we were told visa machine wasn’t working and if you didn’t have cash you were not able to watch any but the 2 free family movies offerrred. Seems to me if the visa machine is not working the passenger should be given free in-flight entertainment but then again I think that one should get free movies on an international flight. The food was poor and we were not seated together as a family Without cajoling the staff. There was no apology given for separating us. We were placed on standby on our return flight and we’re not told until five minutes before boarding that we were getting on the flight. I would never fly this airline again unless I had no other option. If you fly this airline pay extra for premium seating so you can get an assigned seat and get decent food and in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "I liked nothing about Condor Airlines and my life would be dramatically better had I never encountered this company."
Cons: "They cancelled my departing flight with no announcement or warning at all on the day of departure. I had to figure it out on my own. Rather than put me on another flight they rescheduled me to depart the next day from a city on the other side of the US from my original departure city and told me I would have to book my own transport to the new departure city. I spent 5 hours on the phone with them before heading to the airport where I was given a flight to the new departure city but now my nonstop flight had 2 layovers with one being 5 hours long. Luckily, this rescheduling meant I didn't take a Condor flight out. But my return flight was on a Condor plane and it was awful. Cramped seating and hot with no in-flight entertainment or the option to purchase WiFi. I will never fly Condor airlines ever again and I'd recommend anyone stay away from them."
Pros: "The price, the schedule, the convenience of the airports they use. Online Checkin is a breeze, and they seem to be very good at making sure that luggage arrives with passengers. Because we arrived at the airport VERY early (2:30 AM) for a 3:40 PM flight (Eurail scheduling vagaries required this), we checked our bags at 6AM (the earliest possible time) and worried that they had WAY too much time to screw it up, but they didn't, and even if they had, we were going home! Thy did provide a bottle of water for each seat, which was nice. After a late start, we made up some time and landed only a few minutes late."
Cons: "I know it's not entirely the airlines fault, but the boarding process for this flight was byzantine. first, the gate was in the 'basement' of the terminal and you had to show your boarding pass to get into the gate area and then you couldn't leave - and the bathroom was outside the gate area. Then we waited for 25 minutes in line to get on the bus to take us to our aircraft after the 'last call' for boarding announcement was made. When they finally put us on the bus, it was another 10 minutes standing still, packed in like sardines, until the bus actually moved anywhere. I have NO idea where the plane was, but we drove and drove, and drove around the airfield until we finally pulled up at our plane. They had two boarding ramps up, one in the front and one in the back, and just told us that low row number should board from the front and high numbers from the rear, but they didn't tell us what the demarcation was. With seats in row 31, it turned out we were over the wing, pretty much dead center, so it didn't matter. It would have been nice to have a frame of reference though. Aside from that, the food was EH!, the service courteous and efficient, but not friendly, the seats cramped, the no-extra-cost entertainment insipid (except for the audio portion - they provided a huge assortment of tracks by a wide variety of artists in many genres). With my (brought with me) earbuds, I gave up on any video except the flight map and just listened to classical recordings to drown out the screaming babies in the next row and provide a pleasant background for snoozing."
Pros: "Friendlier and much more helpful crew and decent though a bit lacking snack"
Cons: "No free entertainment. No free headphones. Slow baggage claim operation at the final destination. Very Uncomfortable seats. Messy boarding"
Pros: "Knowing they were going to miss my connection, they accepted the booking anyway, out of pure greed and complete disregard for my wellbeing. When I missed my connection in FRA they rebooked me on FRA-YVR-YYZ. That’s a day in a hotel then flying half way around the world to save them a buck. Terrible airline and I’ll never fly them again."
Pros: "The flight crew was great, and the aircraft was very nice and clean."
Cons: "I showed up to the airport 2+ hours early, I tried to check in online, was given a error the said my reservation didn’t exist. When I arrived at the airport I went to the check in counter, when I told them I was checking for a flight to Seattle, i was told that I couldn’t check in because there was a issue with my flight. I was directed to a corner of the terminal. This corner had no chairs or seats for us, we sat there for 2+ hours all the way up to the time our flight was intended to depart. All the while we tried to get information or what was the issue, but we were just stonewalled. Finally past our boarding time were were told the flight was being canceled, and to standby for more information. Another half an hour went by before they told us they were getting us a hotel, and buses to the hotel. So then we waited another 15 minutes or so when they asked us if we had checked in because we needed a ticked to get a room at the hotel. Again we waited in line for 20+ minutes to check in. I had 2 bags to check, one I need at the hotel, the other I did not. They let me check the one bag I could, told me to check the other at the business class check in in the morning to avoid the line, sounds good, or so I thought. So condor gathers us all up, an entire 767 worth of people, and begins hearding us to the buses, they don’t tell us where we’re going, just to follow the one employee, to the 5 or so buses. A large group of us got split off at a set stairs, helping older folks and family with strollers get down the stairs. Now I spent 30 minutes wandering around Frankfurt am main looking for buses. Well they don’t park them out front, they park them out in the middle of nowhere. Finally get to get hotel, it’s a nice hotel. The next morning the lady at the business class desk was extremely rude."
Pros: "The online entertainment has a nice variety of interesting shows, including documentaries. My seat was comfortable with good leg room, but only because I got lucky when I asked for an exit row seat while checking in. The regular economy seats are extremely narrow and uncomfortable with almost no leg room (and I am only average in heigh). Taller people sitting in regular aisle seats are hanging their legs out into the aisle throughout the flight because they have to for any kind of reasonable comfort."
Cons: "Somehow the airline should tell passengers that they are going to have to go through a(mother) strict security process before getting on the plane in Frankfurt to the U.S. We all stood in line for close to an hour in a very hot area of the airport to go through full-on security - water gets thrown out, shoes off, laptops out - the whole works, again. I had already gone through this kind of security in Vienna for the Vienna-Frankfurt leg of my trip. I had no idea this was going to be required and had planned to use my time in Frankfurt to relax and get something to eat. Instead it was spent standing in a surprise security line that moved extremely slowly. Not a fun way to spend the time before getting on an 11-hour flight. If they are going to require that security they should have many more lines available so that it moves at a reasonable pace."
Cons: "First, we went to check-in to get our boarding passes, onlyfor the woman at the counter to tell us we were on Stand-By... for the flight we bought VERY expensive tickets for a YEAR in advance, because they overbooked the flight (100% the AIRLINES fault). Then after some panic time had passed, the same woman told us she was able to get us on the flight, like she'd done us some massive favor, but that we would not be able to sit together. (We are a husband and wife that were on our honeymoon). Then, once we are finally on this flight, cramped near all these strangers, we both go to find some solace in the on-board entertainment, only to find out, they only offered TWO movies free of charge. Two movies for a 10 hour flight. Seriously??? Then, we were served some on board meals, due to the duration of the flight. The food gave me food poisoning. This was by far the WORST flight experience of my life. We will NEVER be flying air Condor again. Nor, will I be referring this company to anyone."
Pros: "Just another average flight. Entertainment system worked. Friendly crew."
Cons: "There is no way to get comfortable in those seats when you are 1,90m 6ft3 Charge to watch movies. Some of them pretty racy especially if you have little kids close to you"
Cons: "Economy movies only two options, that's great but one option was "Part One" of a Harry Potter movie. Should of at least had Part Two available or not shown part one...just a thought."
Pros: "This flight was a little more challenging. The flight was delayed by 3 hours. I do appreciate thought that the Condor airline made the necessary arrangements to ensure their passengers can make the connection to their final destination even though we landed past the time we were to make our next connection. They too care of making sure to secure another flight for the passengers who missed their first connection. Great job. I made it back home the same day."
Pros: "The pilot. The flight was pleasant"
Cons: "Terrible service"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Seats are very small and uncomfortable"
Pros: "On board crew were pleasant"
Cons: "Food was horrible, smallest most uncomfortable seats I've ever been on, overhead was too small for many bags (not mine) so we had to wait to have all of those gate checked, gate crew was clearly annoyed at the lack of organization and thusly quite curt, on board crew was pleasant, lights stayed on until well after midnight and once lights went off crew came to collect payment from guests, bank card not working for US issued cards, entertainment was poor (two movies and one of them a kids movie) that was free and expensive otherwise-- worst trans Atlantic air experience I have had"
Pros: "The crew let my wife and I move to the two outside exit row seats. I asked because it was open and mentioned that it was our honeymoon and they played some tetirs and made it work for us and a number of other people to move around and be more comfortable. Also, this particular flight crew was super friendly. I didn't enjoy my last condor flight and was considering not using them again but this team made me keep that door open."
Cons: "Only 2 security check point gates, one for priority, one for economy class. Seat size is small, leg room is tight. Only 4 toilets for economy class."
Pros: "I like that it was a direct flight and inexpensive."
Cons: "We left one hour late. The lines were very long. Not enough agents. This happened both ways. The seat from Austin to Frankfurt was tight and very uncomfortable. I had paid 49 euros for it. So, on my return flight I upgraded to a 99 euro seat, thinking I'd just be charged the difference. No. I over-paid 150 euros for an exit door seat. The weight limit for a carry-on bag was lighter than for other airlines, so I had to check it in and overpay for that. One of my glass souvenirs was broken."
Pros: "Bypassing Athens was great but the very very early, extremely early departure was not good."
Cons: "Low cost and not going through Athens. Also we flew condor from Seattle. We should have been able to check our bags all the way through to Samos"
Pros: "I don't speak English (my granddaughter is helping me with this survey), and the crew was more than helpful in helping me all the way from Frankfurt to MSP."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and between them and the great food the flight was bearable."
Cons: "Walked from the lounge to the gate when instructed only to spend an hour or more waiting for what seemed ever passenger being called to the desk for something. Boarded to find my selected seats had been given to a large family and that the seats themselves were absolutely terrible in design. they were narrow and had a console that interfered with comfort. the leg-rest could not be extended enough for even an average height person to use the fold down metal foot rest, which therefore was what my calves sat on. This all amounted to ten hours of pain. Condor is not likely to get our business again."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and responsive. The exit row had adequate leg room for me because I am tall. Food was not bad."
Cons: "These are the following issues I had leaving Frankfurt: 1. They assigned me a different seat, even though I paid 99 euro to book a specific exit row seat. When I asked an employee at the airport, she told me I can contact Condor for a refund and gave no explanation as to the issue. I ended up showing a flight attendant my proof of purchase and my boarding pass with the exit row seat assignment and he was able to switch my seat. The person who was assigned my seat never paid for it, so he was willing to switch. I find this unacceptable. 2. The boarding process was a nightmare in Frankfurt. While I understand there was enhanced security due to the terrorism in Barcelona, it could have been handled far more efficiently. For instance, because I transferred airports from Barcelona, I needed to go through passport control twice and go through security again before boarding. The problem arose where there were two different lines to process the passports the 2nd time from Condor and when that was complete, to go through security. It was a large waste of time. 3. The flight was full to Austin. As a result, I was required to check my larger carry-on bag. They tried to charge me 75 euro for the second checked bag even though they were forcing me to check it on. Absolutely unacceptable. 4. They charge 8 euro for every movie and tv show available except two movies: Garfield and the last Harry Potter movies and 2 episodes of two tv shows. For an 11 hour flight, this was incredibly disappointing. The movies available were a mix of older and new. There should still be some unpaid entertainment options available in Coach. That's ridiculous."
Cons: "We couldn't not buy anything during the flight. We were told that US major credit cards were not excepted (e.g. Visa, MC). Everything from Alcohol, Movies/TV, snacks, food, etc. was unavailable because we didn't have cash. We basically starved the entire 10 flight. 2 meals were served at the beginning and end of the flight, but nothing in between. We were in Italy/ Germany for several weeks and no problems with our CC, we spent our cash prior to flight because we didn't want to bring back excess foreign money. Will not fly condor again. We flew premium economy there and it was enjoyable, the seats were not available on the way back and its was miserable flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Seats were so crowded. I am only 5 9 1/2 feet tall, but my knees touched the seat in front of me! Also - why not provide more movies? Other international flights always provide more entertainment. Plus, one shouldn't have to pay to choose vegetarian food."
Pros: "Great price for the flight, very nice plane with excellent service and amenities. You have to pay for many extras (Picking your seat, access to movies), but you can pay for ALL these things and still pay less than a typical flight, not to mention that the basic meals and check bag are included in the price tag."
Cons: "Ok...... I was the only Black person on this flight!!! So between the guest that thought I was not supposed to put my seat back because that made his 12yr old behind uncomfortable to the flight attendant that thought I should keep my knees smashed into the seat in front of me it was very uncomfortable for 11 hours!!! So the boy behind me played kick my seat for 3 hours while his mother who sat across from me found it funny!! Considering I am a black woman and the only black person on this flight I did not want to end up dead or brutally injured if I spoke up to the flight attendant again about this young boys behavior!!! I have flown Condor several times and usually enjoy flying with condor/ Thomas Cook!! But this was one of the worse flights yet!!"
Pros: "Crew were very kind and hospitable. The aircraft was comfortable. There were a good number of restrooms that were easily accessible."
Cons: "The food was not good. I was not given any options in meal choice. That was a bit of a problem as I have lactose issues, so I did not eat much. The entertainment was rather disappointing. The economy/free selection consisted of only two movies that are better for children and teens (Garfield and Harry Potter). All other selections required a purchase of 8 euro. I have flown internationally on several occasions, and this is the first time I have been compelled to pay for entertainment. It seems that for the price and length of such flights more economy options could be given, even if they are older movies."
Pros: "Long line through customs , which caused delays to boarding overall was nothing different during the process of the whole trans action of flight 2082."
Pros: "The food was super! Seats were very comfortable with ample leg room, and I could hardly keep my eyes open throughout the flight. The crew was also attentive."
Cons: "Just that the only entertainment was a limited number of music radio channels with country and old school music. I mean no TV for premium economy?! Lufthansa's basic economy has got a TV and WiFi for long distance travels!"
Pros: "- Nice and attentive crew - Interior appeared clean and updated - Bottle of water given with each seat - 2 meals"
Cons: "- Inefficient boarding procedure. I cant tell if this is Lufthansa's or the airport's issue, but when you arrive to your gate, you then have to proceed with the security checkpoint which took forever. Then you're basically stuck in a smaller area until boarding. - While every seat had a TV screen, they only provided 2 movies to choose from (Harry Potter or Garfield) unless you were willing to pay extra for their whole movie collection. It was kind of a shame finding that out since most other airlines that I've been on provide the full set of movies for no additional cost."
Cons: "The flight was not with Lufthansa. It was with Condor, and they seem not to know very much about customer service. I get that the airport industry doesn't work based on customer service, but still."
Pros: "the crew was great,, did all they could do to make a long flight enjoyable"
Cons: "the gate for condor was in an isolated area of the airport, no restaurants, no shopping, inadequate restrooms and them stuck in a room with 2 vending machines for hours when flight was delayed"
Pros: "Straight through flights from west coast to europe"
Cons: "both the outgoing and return flights did not start boarding until after the flight was scheduled to leave. The gate leaving from Frankfurt had its own security line for just this gate, and then we were coralled in a small space waiting to board, and this little area was packed and really hot in comparison to the rest of the airport. Had to pay to choose a seat, as I didn't want them to stick me in a middle seat. also had to pay to get more than 2 movies, the card reader declined all 3 of my cards (they worked in the airport before boarding). I guess Im used to the fantastic service of Alaska airlines, where they are much more willing to give you free things on the plane, meals, drinks, especially if the card reader doesn't work. Luckily the gal next me had some cash to cover me. I also asked for a pen to fill out my custom papers, and a stewardess said no, she didn't have a pen and walked off. I would like to say I wouldn't fly them again, but they are cheap, and not having layovers is really nice"
Pros: "Flight time was shortened by 1.5 hrs!"
Cons: "Distance between seats was short and my knees touched the seat in front"
Pros: "Entertainment was good and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Crew was very unorganized. Did not come to give food until an hour before we landed and we're rushing to pick up all the trays as we were landing. No vegetarian options even though I saw gluten free options the crew member would give me one even though I saw dozens on his trolly before he went back to retire that trolly and get the main meal. The young male crew member didn't know what he was doing and cause tension between the other crew members. Not a comfortable experience and the worst food I've had on a plane."
Pros: "Like that flight wasnt full. Had row to myself."
Cons: "Curfew in Frankfurt. Forced to spend the night as there are no flights going out in the airport after 11pm. Citizens of Frankfurt do not like airport noise. So just be aware of this when booking. Gate information isnt available or visible until 30 minutes before boarding. So if you're an early bird you are left wondering where to go or if you're in the right place. Boarding process is terrible. No announcement as to what section is boarding except for premium/first class. Free for all after that and rude gate staff. Like just open your mouth and tell us who is suppose to board so they'll be no confusion. If you are brown/black, please note security/police in Germany will do a "random" security check on you again at the gate. Just comply :-( As others mentioned the food is quite unsavory. Eat before you get on and bring plenty of snacks."
Pros: "New plane less noisy than usual. Nice crew"
Cons: "Seats are quite small and I could not upgrade Uncomfortable for a 10 hours flight Meals were poor. You have to pay for alcoholic drinks. Kind of low cost airline treatment. Storage for cabin luggage is very small. They have a 6kg limit and size is smaller that on regular airlines. This info is somewhat hard to find when purchasing the ticket. They only have 2 movies included, a decent entertainment package was quite expensive The plane left late but caught up during the flight I will avoid this kind of experience"
Pros: "Water was free. And 2 meals - no, based on portion size, I guess those were snacks. Everything else cost extra."
Cons: "Tightest passenger seating I have experienced in over 60 years of flying and the MOST UNCOMFORTABLE seat. I am just 6' and my knees pressed agsinst the seatback in the upright position. Firmly. First time ever I couldn't sleep. Accoustics meant the talking of a passenger across the aisle and against the window sounded like he was in my lap! HORRIBLE design. A ceiling panel came loose and swung down in flight (lights attached). Nobody knew how to fix it so the entire wait crew just stood and stared at it for 10 minutes until one woman swung it back into place. AWFUL training."
Pros: "Chose this flight for the price. Service on board was good. Friendly crew. Food was good and the beverage cart came by several times. I would only choose this airline again if my budget required it."
Cons: "While in Germany, I broke my leg, was in a cast, and required a wheelchair for mobility. The airport staff was not well organized to deal with people with mobility issues. After waiting for 25 minutes for someone to assist us to the gate, we decided we'd better just get there ourselves. The plane was already boarding when we made it there and an agent told us to just get in the back of the line. When we were half way through the queue another agent asked us why we were in the queue and at that time brought us to the head of the line boarding. The seats are tilted forward to make more room and it feels like you are sitting down slope...not enjoyable on a long flight. All the other flights, my wheelchair was waiting and my husband could take care of me. In Seattle, my wheelchair had been sent to baggage and we had to have an employee wheel me for liability reasons. He had two wheelchairs he was trying to maneuver, so we had to sit and wait several times while he was getting the other person to their destination. We were concerned about making our connecting flight."
