Was not given boarding passes at Brussels Lufthansa check in. Told to get them at the gate in Munich.

I missed the flight!!!! , they left me !

Pros: "Plane ride was very smooth. I was particular about the type of plane. Fly-by-wire planes(mostly built by Airbus) tend to be smooth sailing"

Pros: "Smooth flight for the most part."
Cons: "Better food choices. Better communication and better boarding procedures by rows or groups."

Cons: "The person checking me in could have given me a few minutes to help me understand the flight delay"
Pros: "Crew was good, not amazing but Food was a disaster. I can't believe an airline of Lufthansa's repute has bad food and even mediocre in flight entertainment. Compare that to any asian or middle-east airline, Lufthansa is 20 years behind in terms of it's service?"
Cons: "Lufthansa please don't follow the US-based airlines model of greed and profit. Have some decency and don't tarnish your brand."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Food and Drinks"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled by the airlines due to mechanical failure. Told us to go home and wait for email on what to do. No compensation"

Pros: "On time, pleasant, comfortable."
Cons: "Honestly all good!"
Pros: "Comfort, flight on time."
Pros: "Crew and service was very good,"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "Crew and entertainment options"
Cons: "Passengers gathering against crew instructions. Large group behind me was loud and inconsiderate."
Cons: "The gate was moved three times."
Pros: "Easy checking"
Cons: "Worst hospitality. Asked for water, never came to serve. Had to remind and call couple of times. Said drinks were over specially scotch."
Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight for a great price! The US carriers cannot compete with Lufthansa or any European airlines as a matter of fact."
Cons: "Touchscreen of the entertainment system was not very sensitive and had false readings. Annoying but not critical."
Pros: "Seats felt softer."

Cons: "Food was served burning hot, and nobody came over to collect the trays in for minutes"
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew didn't seem quite ready for offering refreshments, and I had to go and ask for water several times. The snacks weren't very ubstantial, and having a good 4-5 hours in between meals was hard for me as I had been traveling for a long time already."
Pros: "service was great"
Cons: "The fine print on the flight pass-- didn't notice that my request for flight change did not go through. Am stuck in the airport!"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Very bad customer experience, the seat are very uncomfortable, and they stole money from my hand bag after sending it to the plane cargo"

Cons: "Nothing to report :)"
Pros: "Service and entertainment were great. The food was somewhat better than most airlines with free beer and wine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed on departure by 8 hours. This caused us to cancel and rearrange hotels. The flight back had to make an emergency medical stop for 2 hours but this was not the fault of the airline and is understandable.."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The seats are horrendous. I paid for extra room but the armrests don't move. Other airlines have armrest that move in economy seats. No opportunity to rebook online or at the airport. I flew in this route a month before, and since then I've been trying to change the seats. Lufthansa customer service never called me back. When I tried to call, I was put on hold for more than an hour every time. Never flying Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Lufthansa always does an excellent job."
Pros: "we had to cut our trip short and book an immediate flight home on Lufthansa. The staff took excellent care of us. Even offered us some orange juice and milk to take home knowing that we may need it (being away for a while) and knowing that our first priority was to get to a hospital. These little events shows the extreme compassion from Lufthansa's on-board staff. We will now ALWAYS look to fly Lufthansa whenever possible."
Pros: "They had lots of movies and TV options to choose from."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was very poor. Frankly a pizza snack in place of supper is not what I expect on a cross-Atlantic flight."
Pros: "Custom in Chicago was the fastest I experienced for a long time."
Cons: "Food was questionable."

Listening covid restrictions and following them is completely nonsense. Avoid touching others? How when plane is full and everybody who pass around touchs me. Keep distance?? How???? Avoid walking in the plane but also wash your hands regularly with soap and water? How? I should avoid walking but at the same time you want me to wash hand regularly? It means i have to walk up and down. What is regularly for you? Every 15mins? Every hour? Every day? It is so stupid what you are telling that my brain stops to work.

Nice flight but from Entebbe to Amsterdam they didn’t get me what I requested for the baby.

Great flight Will go again!

Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"
Pros: "Cabin facilities"
Cons: "They didn’t bring one of my bags"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Pros: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
Cons: "Faultless handling of weather delay, causing missed connection and flight transfer. A well oiled machine, thank you."
Pros: "Good food, friendly service"
Cons: "More trash pickup; only one round of beverage service"
Pros: "The crew!!"
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Cons: "I ordered Wheel chair for my parents but one of them didn't get it at all. When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."
Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"
Cons: "Very slow service at checkin, was not even available when I arrived at the airport"
Pros: "punctuality of boarding and flight time"
Cons: "attitude of crew in business class: no sense of true hospitality"
Pros: "The attention and service!! Excellent. It was my birthday and KLM the head purser surprised me with 2 bottles of bubbles and a handwritten birthday card KlM and the crew of this flight thank you very much !"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."
Pros: "Norhing"
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."
Pros: "Nice crew; clean plane; decent dinner"
Cons: "No entertainment system; insufficient knee space"
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."
Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."
Pros: "Nice seats, comfortable."
Cons: "Again, no aisle seat for SkyTeam Gold member. Also, my baggage was lost. First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me. I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."
Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."
Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."
Pros: "Catering is ok"

Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."
Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"

Rude staff, entertainment screen not working, food is horrible. The only good thing was check in process

As usual, Egyptair was late in departing, so I was late in arriving in Cairo for the connecting flight. It was a short one hour flight, but being 15 minutes late is not good.

Thank you so much ☺️

Pros: "Crew was super friendly and helpful!!"
Cons: "I didn’t really like the available movies"
Cons: "Flight was a little warm"
Pros: "878-9 was amazing with seats flat. The 737-800 needs some improvements!"

Cons: "Set in business class he has no own entertainment old airplane seats are ok but limited to certain positions"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, but the sit was uncomfortable"
Cons: "Since it's along trip the sits should be adjustable not to be straight throughout to avoid back pain"

Pros: "Seat very comfortable and service was excellent"

Pros: "Stuff was professional"
Cons: "Really I have taken this flight several times and they are always perfect"
Cons: "OUr departing flight was delayed almost 1 1/2 hours, resulting in a missed connection in Cairo -- this is not uncommon. The connecting flight waited 6 minutes, then left us. Arranging an alternative (through Rome & onward by late evening) was done , but no one was at the transfer desk for an hour."

Cons: "Entertainment programs was so poor .."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost 2 hours."

Cons: "The cabin temperature was quite warm hardly any air coming out of the air vents. I dont think they had all the air pacs on"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "I couldn't get my boarding passes online or at the airport kiosk after already checking in online before getting to the airport. I had to wait over an hour in line at the checkin desk just to get my boarding passes. The boarding process in Cairo was even more chaotic with unnecessary multiple disorganized checkpoints and line ups."
Cons: "I didn’t like that the food and the service and the chairs the floor is not clean actually that was bad flying flying"
Pros: "I really enjoyed when the plane LANDED at my Destination!"
Cons: "1. The plane was hot. In the Middle East they don't turn on the AC whilst on the ground. They only turn it on when in the air?!?! 2. The food was basic! I ordered the Seafood and it had 3 overcooked shrimp and baked fish. Not tasty at all. The bread was hard as a rock! 3. Boarding was like a cattle call!! Kind of like Southwest Airlines! 4. The Takeoff, Cruise and Landing was NOT bad at all! 5. I guess being an American, it was FOOLISH of me to ask for Ginger Ale on this Egyptian Flight!! 6. When I landed in Cairo, it would have been helpful to know that while going through Customs, I would need to purchase a Egypt Entry Visa fee for $25.00, but since I didn't know that, I waited in line for 20 minutes ONLY to have the Customs agent tell me that I had to go purchase one, then get back I line for ANOTHER 20 minutes!!!!!!! UGGHHHHHH!! 7. I flew on an Airbus that didn't have plug in for your phones to charge (maybe that's just a Boeing thing)."
Cons: "We received our baggage 2 days later"
Pros: "In flight service"
Cons: "Food is not as good as it looks"
Pros: "Good meals, and plenty of beverages."
Pros: "Flight was on time and I appreciate that."
Pros: "This flight was on time and I appreciate when Egypt Air flights are on time."
Pros: "This flight was on time and I truly appreciate when EgyptAir flights are on time."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Crew not attentive not trying to give the extra service that you pay so much money for. Food options hopeless. No welcome no introduction. Nondrink on arrival. I could’ve sworn that I was in a budget economy section. Old Shaking plane. Other than a business class seat you get nothing."
Cons: "Everything is bad, food is horrible, tea is cold, AC is not cold and not serving even water for 2 hours since the take off. When arrived we got transported to terminal in old bus after waiting long time for the bus to return from taking the first patch of passengers."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was decent, I was especially impressed by the very wide variety of music to listen to. The crew were very friendly, helpful and attentive. The plane was clean and presentable, especially the lavatories. The seats were comfortable and the blankets provided worked well too."
Cons: "Food was bland and the chicken dish was dry and difficult to chew. Movie selection on the entertainment system was mediocre, with limited variety of films in general and especially limited variety in languages other than English and Arabic. A problem which I encountered on board was a big gap between the ventilation panel at the base of the wall and the flooring, through which the dessert of my meal fell and which presented the risk of losing further items. I hope this is fixed promptly."
Pros: "Sufficient leg room."
Cons: "Crew need more training. Entertainment need to improve."
Cons: "Staff are rude in comparison to other airlines, hostess greeting us actually called my 2 year old naughty for touching the toilet door whilst boarding! Media is also limited and with constant interruptions, plus not available for take off or landing! Tray tables were dirty, I’ve honestly given up trying to eat the food on board these flights! Despite numerous tags and a note on my ticket the stroller is never able to be brought up to the aircraft door. I won’t be flying Egyptair again"
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and so cramped. The food was bad. The flight attendants were frustrated and angry. No internet options. The tv shows and movies were all old and there wasn’t very many options at all. Connecting in Cairo was complete chaos and so exhausting."
Pros: "Possibly the food and the flight is direct"
Cons: "Anything else you could think of. The crew is unfriendly the plane is messy no one follows rules or regulations just a complete mess"
Pros: "The dinner food was decent (breakfast was subpar)."
Cons: "We waited about an hour lined up outside of the gate to board. Then when we finally boarded late, we sat on the runway for 2 hours! This wasn’t the first time it’s happened on this flight, either! We were thirsty and no one offered us water. The flight attendants kept skipping my friend and I when they did come around, which was not often. We were extremely thirsty the entire time and when we finally were able to get up to use the bathroom and search for water, we were told to sit back down. We got tiny cups of water about three times on a 10.5 hour flight. Lastly, the entertainment selection was very small and limited."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "It took over an hour to check-in. People were pushing in because it was not well marked and nobody directing the people. It was terrible. The plane has very old seats, and no entertainment screen on seats, still the old monitors hanging from the roof."
Pros: "Good service and friendly environment"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Fair was inexpensive."
Cons: "Too many security checks"
Pros: "Best landing ever, if I was sleeping I would not even have woken up during the landing. Well done to your skilled pilots."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was a little low, but the fact that you don't play any ads is great! Other airlines make you watch 30 mins + worth of ads."
Pros: "The people, the food, the culture."
Cons: "Traffic"
Cons: "My daughter was traveling from Antalya to Cairo via Istanbul, her bag was missed in Cairo airport, we checked the system and we found that the bag was loaded from Antalya airport. She was in honeymoon trip and has many valuable items in her bag."
Pros: "The flight staff was SO helpful, and helped me beyond what I expected. The flight was very comfortable from start to finish."
Cons: "Having more movie options would have been good."
Pros: "Excellent Helpful boarding & on flight crew. New aircraft"
Cons: "Very poor entertainment choices."
Cons: "Old entertainment system, otherwise, everything else was fine"

On time departures, early arrivals, great crews. Can't ask for any better

We had to run to catch our flight. An announcement should have been made that they would wait for us. When we were departing our flight from Hfx. There was commotion became the flight attendants asked for passengers to wait that weren’t connecting to another flight,a passenger yelled out for everyone to SIT DOWN that weren’t connecting. I feel that the air craft should be exited the same way as is boarded,by zones.Also,if people are connecting then those passengers should be exited first,an announcement to suggest that people wait DOES NOT WORK. So much for social distancing!

Cons: "Air Canada needs to update it's entertainment systems. On flights to and from my destination both the audio jack and screen were broken. Also, the flight did not receive any salads, leaving this vegan with slim pickings. Get it together, Air Canada!"
Pros: "Staff are very nice"
Cons: "Delay in flight of more than 45 minutes"
Pros: "Boarding was good and fast"
Cons: "The audio jack was not good thus I had to keep it steady with my hand to be able to listen to movie"
Cons: "if the flight is on time. I was delay more than 10 hours"
Cons: "The delay was ridiculous. Seats are the usual tiny ones so for a big guy they suck but over all great trip"
Cons: "My flight was an early morning flight 8 am. I needed to get up at 5 am to get ready for this flight. AC notified me 5:05 am that my flight delayed 3 hrs to 11am. I wish they told us the night before so no need to get up that early."
Cons: "We had a 5:35 am flight and the plane was 1/2 hour late to gate. By the time it got there, we spent over 1 hour sitting at gate loaded up waiting for weather to clear. It was fine when it was supposed to be there. Therefore, this was not initially a weather issue. Our connecting flight is 12 hours after Our schedules flight. I have a 1 year old toddler. Customer service rep less than sympathetic personality."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Please train this guys for customer service and fix there attitude."
Pros: "Smooth as you like"
Pros: "Very organized crew for the boarding on instructing passengers with carry-ons etc for the overhead storage compartments. Flight left on time."
Cons: "My entertainment screen was malfunctioning. Very frustrating trying to watch a movie to the point I turned it off & read a book . If you are going to offer the the service make sure it works."
Pros: "The tvs were nice."
Cons: "The people in front of us reclined their seats and there was no leg room. The flight was severely delayed by an hour and a half making us miss our connection."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Not enough time to the flight from Halifax to west plam beach"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly with this flight. It boarded on time. The crew were all very friendly. I enjoyed the entertainment selections and found a tv show that I had been wanting to see. I managed to watch 2 episodes and look forward to watching more of the same show on my flight back. I ended up having the 2 seats to myself which was great. Extra legroom. I have no complaints at all."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, leg room adequate. Crew helpful."
Cons: "The young child that screamed for the first two hours of the flight. The man in the seat behind me that coughed loudly constantly for 5.5 hours. No sleep on an overnight flight. Gluten free options not available for me and my wife. We tried to book these before the flight but we're not allowed access for this. Flight entertainment system froze and had to be reset, resulting in blank screens for the first 30 minutes or so."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Boarding process."
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "When the flight was already late (it arrived late), they delayed takeoff so that many people, including me, missed their connections."
Cons: "When there is a delay, even when weather related, show some empathy and feed stranded passengers!"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "I travel a lot. I have to say both Air Canada and Kayak did a excellent job to remind me via email and text message to check-in online 24 hrs before my departure, never fail. Kayak also keeps on updating me about my flight on time or not, gate number etc. As a traveler, these features are very important. keep up with the good work!"
Pros: "Airline provided a flight to Toronto, with reasonable amenities and boarding process."
Cons: "Had to load my own suitcase on the luggage belt - I am elderly, with back issues, traveling alone. Attendant was courteous and helped me, but stated that staff "doesn't do it any more" because of safety issues. No help will be given in the future. Plane left two hours late - I missed my connection. Was given a stipend for an overnight stay, but no explanation was given about the delay. Staff couldn't tell me if my checked baggage was on the plane the next morning. I probably won't fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Almost 2 hour delay in Halifax until 1:30 am but Air Canada lounge closed at 11 anyway."
Pros: "Good breakfast."
Cons: "Cabin was cool"
Cons: "It was 3am and my boarding pass wasn't bright enough on my phone. Instead of politely asking me to go print out my boarding pass at the check in stations, she yelled at me and told me I was holding up the line"
Pros: "The smooth take off & landing"
Cons: "Kayak did not allow us to reserve seats, and the seats we received were not together, even though we purchased the seats six months in advance. My seat was at the front facing rear wards, with a non-tilting seat and little foot room."
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "They didn't give out free nuts/pretzels. The entertainment system was off for half the flight even through they said it would reboot in 10 minutes. Loading the plane was the slowest I have ever seen."
Pros: "Seating in a double rather than triple layout."
Cons: "Delay of almost an hour on the runway because of a mechanical problem, after being asked to turn off cell phones and so we couldn't notify those meeting us. Our flight arrival did not appear on the board at Pearson , thus complicating our communication with those meeting us. Baggage was slow being unloaded. Will seriously consider flying to Hamilton with West Jet next time we return from Halifax."
Cons: "Air Canada shares a trait with many other incompetent organizers: everything is fine if nothing goes wrong, but there are no contingency plans in place in case something goes wrong. So, things get more and more delayed. Can't you predict roughly when the plane is going to land (once it is in the air!) and arrange for some gate to be open, so that we don't have to sit on the ground for 45 minutes once it has landed, for example? People who know how to organize are ordinarily capable of doing that. Furthermore, the lack of transparency is really frustrating: we just sit on the tarmac with no indication of how long we're going to be there, and the estimates of the delays are completely wrong when we're given them."
Cons: "Lousy food and no snacks"
Cons: "Our flight originating in Halifax was 1.5 hours delayed and we knew there was no way we would make our connecting flight in Toronto with a 40 min window to pass through customs, US immigration, and reenter security into the US bound F gates. We requested to be rebooked for early the following day to avoid being stranded in Toronto. Acknowledging it was unlikely we could make the connection, the staff told us that because the computer didn't list it as a "missed connection", they could not take any steps to rebook us. Of course, we missed the connection and were stranded for an entire 24 hours in Toronto with two small children."
Pros: "A very typical flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Flight was only half full. It was a red eye from Halifax to London, so there were several rows with no one in it. That allowed me to move to a row that I could lay down in. Flight attendants were pleasant. Everything was included (ie, food, free checked bags, earphones for TV) Great value for money."
Cons: "I watched WTF on the in seat entertainment system but it was not formatted for that screen, it was too narrow and the sides were cut off so part of the action was not on screen. Pretty minor issue."
Cons: "The security check took so long. We made it last minute even thought we were in the airport more than 1.5 hours before the flight (as recommended)!!"
Pros: "flight was fine pleasant flight attendants was late flight so slept a lot now much to add"
Pros: "The t flight was completely uneventful-the best kind."
Pros: "Crew was fine, should serve at least a cookie with the drink..."
Cons: "Didn,t like the service I received getting off the plane.. Cannot walk any distance..Didn,t order a wheelchair, because I didn,t know I had too. Asked for a ride on the golf carts, got told to walk around the corner, and one will pick me up!! Never saw one yet!!! Took awhile but managed to walk to the luggage, but had to sit for half hour with the pain in my legs.....No thank you Air Canada, next tine it will be different air lines....."
Cons: "Our flight from Halifax to Los Angeles via Toronto should have left at 3:15 on Sunday so that we could arrive back in Los Angeles by 10:14 pm. Instead the flight was delayed and left 200 people stranded and waiting in line for customer service. Because I did not have cell service in Canada, I was forced to wait 2 hours in line only to have the agent at the counter make me talk to an agent on the phone. Prior to that, we were shocked that one of the only two agents at the counter left the counter to talk to people in line behind us instead of servicing the customers first come first serve. When I asked him to please return to the counter to help the next person in line, he mumbled that that was not what he wished to do. Meanwhile, all flights out of Toronto were fully booked that night. The delayed flight finally left at 1:30 am. Had Air Canada notified its customers about the 10 hour delay, we could have spent that time in Halifax. Both my husband and I were very disappointed in how AC handled the whole situation. Both the counter agents and the phone agent were unhelpful in offering us options."
Pros: "when I landed"
Cons: "First off the the plane was mid takeoff and stopped which terrified the passengers and crew. Then we learned the plane had technical issues which lead to a 50 minute delay, then air canada did nothing as in terms of compensation. My audio jack for the entertainment system was broken, seat 19F on flight 617 by the way... Then I got up to use the washroom and when I came out I had to wait 30 minutes at the back of the plane standing until the servers were done serving drinks and snacks/food. Then the landing was terrifying as the plane was swooping/shaking much more than normal, even the board crew looked a bit worried. Could NOT wait to be done of the flight, one of my worst ever."
Pros: "Very satisfied with the flight."
Pros: "Worst service I've ever had"
Cons: "The flight for Montreal was half empty and than there was a flight to Toronto Hallf empty as well, and the flight Toronto to Montreal was half empty...by coincidence our flight Halifax-Montreal on Sunday at 19:15 was cancelled due to technical issues. However it was obvious that AirCanada didn't care about the passenger time or valued it...instead of flying 3 empty flights they cancelled our flight and maximize capacity on the other planes...not happy we didn't get any voucher and we wasted 4 hours of our time and didn't have dinner until 1 am"
Pros: "Staff and plane were fabulous"
Pros: "Love the look of the Halifax Airport after its renovations , brighter than it used to be, Check-in and boarding went very quickly The plane took on extra fuel just n case we had a layover in Toronto because of poor weather but that didn't happen"
Cons: "The possibility of a layover in Toronto because of poor weather lol"
Pros: "Good service...plane clean....attendants very attentive to all passengers!"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly, no delays, good staff, all good :)"
Pros: "The friendly service."
Cons: "When my baggage arrived a zippered pocket was open and a an antique compass that my father (who just passed away) left me was taken. I contacted Air Canada who said that they couldn't do anything about it, they only allow claims for lost baggage. I was heartbroken, and there is nothing Air Canada can do about securing passengers baggage from thieves. Very disappointed with the lack of support with this issue."

7 hour delay poorly handled by airline

Pros: "thanks to the paid upgrading we got 2 seats in the front of the cabin (row 5)"
Cons: "there was NO organisation at all during boarding: the people just stood in line, not respecting 1,5m. Also at the airport security waiting lines no attention to social distancing was respected. At arrival the off-boarding was in groups of 8th rows, not really helpfull either. A big disappointment versus the flight we had from BXL to PORTO !"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Chocolates were very nice."
Cons: "Come on guys for the price of the ticked you could have served us something more than a sandwich."
Pros: "The crew reacted good to the change of plane"
Cons: "Needed to replace plane because of technical problem, that should have detected earlier. The business seats are standard seats. No water through the flights. Very bad experience"
Pros: "Loved everything! Including the food."
Cons: "I’m not sure if there was WiFi, i wished that would’ve been advertised. If possible can you advertise the drinks and snacks selections. I booked my flight with Lufthansa but it was operated by another company which made it difficult to find"
Pros: "Got us there safely"
Cons: "Fight delayed more than an hour, much of that time we sat on a bus. Plane arrived late at the starting airport."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. The crews were helpful."
Cons: "Cleaner bathroom on the plane."
Pros: "One of the crew member who served our food seemed in a rush and just dropped our food on our trays :( There was a lack of communication at the counter for travelers like us who was making this connecting flight. We were there four two hours and nobody bother to tell us we needed to check-in again."
Cons: "Better communication for people making a connection. Not to wait until you are showing your boarding pass and then telling us we needed to check-in again,"
Pros: "Paid for Business , got a minor economy service ."
Cons: "Almost no advantages for business ticket traveller"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Connecting gate was on the other side of the airport. We were running from one side of the airport to another. They should have provided a shuttle service for all of those passengers."
Cons: "Whole flight was so cold like in refrigerator."
Cons: "It was very cold inside the airplane. I have to ask multiple times for blanket."
Pros: "fast lane boarding"
Cons: "no snacks"
Pros: "After a bad experience checking in from Paris, the Ouagadougou part of the trip went well and the food was good, and a good entertainment system."
Pros: "Good priority boarding"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "We were delayed boarding slightly, delayed sat on a steaming gate shuttle then sat on the tarmac for a couple of hours while storms passed. But the crew gave regular updates, provided food and water, allowed us to walk about. It was as plesent as such a situation could be."
Pros: "That we checked in at VIP"
Cons: "The food was the worst I've had in a plan."
Pros: "We got warm washcloths to refresh our hands and face. A full bottle of water to save as we needed, followed immediately by a beverage service and pretzels. Dinner of either fish or chicken was delicious, and included bread, cheese, salad, and dessert. Followed by additional beverage services, a mushroom calzone and finally Belgium chocolates. The crew was friendly and entertainment on personal monitors was very good. This was the best overseas flight I have had in several years."
Cons: "Aisles were very narrow to access bathrooms."
Pros: "Entertainment choices"
Pros: "Quick, easy, friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment but it was a short flight"
Pros: "good"
Cons: "Despite the fact that I reserved a window seat, I was assigned a seat in the middle of the center row. They also 'sanitized' the airplane twice after that closed the doors before take off. They walked up and down the aisle with aerosol spray cans. I don't think people should be subject to unknown chemicals in order for the airline to save time on cleaning the cabin before take off."
Pros: "The crew was calm, professional and polite."
Cons: "There was a delay of almost an hour on my first leg of the trip, which meant that I was really rushing to get to the gate for my connection in Brussels. It would have been nice to have some sort of express option for that, since it was the airline's fault that we were late."
Cons: "Brussels - Prague 3 hours delayed, 2 of which were we were stuck inside the plane waiting for take-off. They didnt even give use a warning or anything about it."
Pros: "Lots of empty seats so more room"
Cons: "Had to pay for tea/coffee. Was free on way over so don’t understand this"
Pros: "the service I received from Ken Tollenare in centraltracing@brusselsairlines was awesome, the only efficient and kind person in your airline."
Cons: "very bad service, delayed and the lost my luggage for 4 and 5 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Crew. Entertainment. Food. Leg room was a bit longer than usual."
Cons: "Lack of complimentary food - not even a snack as far as I can remember - for almost 5 hours flight. Really?"
Cons: "I was not allowed to get on board even though the plane was sitting at the airport still and it was the airlines delay that I made me late."
Cons: "after a long flight from the states, no water in the connection flight. all security checks all over again. very crowded. air brussels you need to be improved."
Cons: "Crammed seats, not very clean, took pictures, very dirty."
Cons: "1. During check in, they change my seat number that i choose during the reservation process from a front window seat to a rear isle seat 2. Flight was supposed to land in Hamburg. Because of a storm, they went to Hannover. They announced that the time we will stay in Hannover is unknown. Maybe 2 hours... but then no news from the crew during our stop. 3. Several passeNgers asked to get out in Hannover. The crew said they will ask if possible. After one hour waiting in Hannover they did not even ask the airport authorities. Passengers insisted. The crew then said no because they do not want to go through the luggage finding process. 4. Weather was too hot. Waiting time was too long. Passengers Needed drinks and food. Crew only sold these without even offering free snacks, sandwitches, or drinks. 5. Babies and kids were there. No food nor drinks. They survived during 5 extra hours on the plane schedule on biscuits and water. Personnel did not even think of ordering food from hannover airport while waiting there. They only SOLD the snacks they have. 6. We returned to humburg with 5 hours delay over our original schedule. Stayed 2 hours until we got our luggages on the belt 7. Some passengers had to go back to hannover by train. We discover that all trains were stopped die to problems caused by the storm on the railway. They had the choice either to take very expensive taxis or to sleep over in Hamburg!! 8. This could have been avoided if brussel airline had some good will to at least help those passengers get their luggage and leave in Hannover! 9. Overall: very bad experience and crue attitude in Brussel Airlines!"
Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary"
Cons: "Wish there had been a place to plug in phone or other USB stuff"
Cons: "This is a low cost airline. No food, no entertainment, At least the crew was polite."
Cons: "There was not enough space for our luggage so we had to carry it for the whole flight, the crew didn't even care and there were extremely rude and not nice when we asked where could we leave our luggage, they said no. The flight was delayed for 90 minutes. TERRIBLE airline"
Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "I was literally in tears by the end of my flight because my back hurt so bad in the seats. When I was boarding, I had a two hour layover and I still had to run for my flight and they were already boarding when I got there. The food was tasteless. All I could do was try and sleep and pray the flight ended quickly."
Cons: "The overall organization was poor trying to make passengers off the plan to Kigali and boarding the Kigali passengers"
Pros: "On time Polite crew"
Pros: "Excellent staff"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Choice of food"
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "Impossible to check in online if you have a visa. Avoid at all costs seats in row 15. The first row in coach has 3 seats and be row behind has 4 meaning that you are 4 people sharing 3 screens and seat pockets. No room to put your legs under the seat in front of you because they are not aligned with the seats in front. I fly all the time and have never seen this. I am short and has absolutely no room for myself or even my iPad and headphones. Horrible experience. Never flying with Brussels airlines on a transatlantic again!"
Cons: "Not allowing free seat selection when the ticket is purchased."
Pros: "The flight attendant was friendly."
Cons: "My bag was lost. I was in Africa for 4 days before it finally came in. During the flight, there were several hours that we were never checked on or asked if we wanted something to drink."
Cons: "Audio didn't work, broken tray that the food and drink could fall, unresponsive crew staffs (they consistently ignored my call and even turned off the call light above my seat-they just didn't do anything)"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All of it. Missed an event because of their delay. An event I paid for."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Second time I called customer support a A nice lady named Elisia was super friendly and helpful and was able to switch me to another flight on the same day."
Cons: "Received a text message that my flight back to the US was canceled. The first time I called Brussels Airlines customer service, I was offered only the same flight one or two days later. Phone support person was very unfriendly and unwilling to look at other options like booking me on another flight that same day."
Pros: "The service was only exceptional l, there weren't too many good movies selections.overall The turbulence made made the trip worse although the whether was very.l clear. There was also a weird background noise. Boarding was terrible had to wait an hour in a long line"
Cons: "not enough leg room. I had asked for seats with more leg room due to my medical condition and did not get any satisfaction"
Pros: "The entertainment system is great and they provide a lot of food. The crew is very available and efficient."
Cons: "We had delays in Brussels because of a communication issue and because we were waiting on a vehicle to help us push off from the gate, which was a bit odd. The movie selection was good but a little outdated."
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. The food wasn't great and even on a flight that was at 75% capacity they ran out of food options."
