Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Severe turbulence and many of the Egyptian passengers didn't understand the announcements and were getting up"

Pros: "Very helpful crew, good food."
Cons: "Flight was one hour late."
Pros: "Canceled and not rebooked untill 4 days later"
Cons: "Still waiting to fly"
Pros: "On the airline website the price of the ticket was $3000 and I bought it for $750 on Kayak, I expected delays, cancellations or something to go wrong and justify that price drop. Nothing of that sort happened! It was a comfortable and on time trip with no problems!"
Pros: "Fantastic seats are very comfortable. Makes long trips like this one actually enjoyable."
Cons: "For business class the food could be improved."
Pros: "The food and drink were the only two enjoyable moments of this flight."
Cons: "The crew in Cluj airport could not care less about getting the plane boarded and departed on time. For 20 minutes crew stood around in the airport talking to each other and using their cellphones. Finally the transport bus was loaded only to have the bus driver get out, and talk to another employee while simultaneously using his phone. No information was given for the delay and the plane was boarded at time of departure. This careless and unbothered attitude resulted in a missed connecting flight for my partner and I. We were completely unassisted by crew on the plane and ended up having to wait 24hours for our next flight home. Absolutely disgusted by the service provided from Cluj to Munich. I would seriously consider another airline before booking again with Lufthansa for this route."
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "They lost 2 of my checked in bags and damaged 2 others."
Pros: "Nothing positive to report...NOTHING!!"
Cons: "Worse travel day of my life. I'll never fly Lufthansa again and never go thru Frankfort again. Lost luggage both ways. Awful experience!!"
Cons: "Not entertainment at all"
Cons: "Delayed and therefore missing my connecting flight. Still needed to check in on time as if flight was not delayed. Being stuck in AP for 6 hours. Carry on is ltd to 8kg. My empty carry on weights 6kg. What is next with airlines? Travel without luggage? Stop gauging your customers."
Pros: "The flight was fine. However, because of a potential snow storm in Boston for 3/21, the flight with Lufthansa was cancelled. We were switched to TAP Portugal for the 22nd. When we arrived at Logan airport, we were told by TAP the flight is overbooked, but there is a chance we will get seats. We did get seats at the last moment, always kept abreast by TAP representatives. The flight was a non-stop flight, leaving at 6 PM arriving by 6 AM, far better than the connections with changes the day before."
Cons: "I tried to reschedule due to a death in the family and due to the "small print" this was not possible. Then when I did travel, it turned out I didn't have the right for a piece luggage (again "small print"). I paid for the extra piece and I was double-charged (same amount withdrawn twice). Now I have opened a complained with Austrian and they haven't responded so far."
Cons: "Two hours to unload my luggage!"
Cons: "Very Negative Experience and I will never use, and strongly discourage others from using Kayak or Lufthansa or Flyus.com unless you correct the problem!"
Pros: "On time - although a long flight I didn’t see the time go by"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating. I was surprised that the food was as good as it was."
Cons: "The seats were very small. I am a woman in her late twenties under 5 feet tall and I had difficulty getting comfortable in the seats. The temperature was too hot the entire flight and I was unable to recline my seat back in order to sleep. Two bathrooms were out of commission the entire flight. This was the worst experience I've had on a red eye flight to Europe (I've traveled at least a dozen times between the US and Germany)"
Cons: "Pathetic food, and really rude crew by the standards of an international flight."
Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "The food options you're supposed to get don't exist because they provide a limited number of the variety they have! By the time they get to your seat, they are already out of options. Sadly, the quality and service are going down too."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding. Back of the plane seats should be boarding first, after babies and old people. I was stopped by the people in front of the plane putting away their luggage and standing in the aisle."
Pros: "I enjoyed how smooth the whole flying went in the Lufthansa plane, also how quite was inside the plane compare to other airlines airplanes. I love the leg room in the plane. I impressed with the level of commitment to take passenger out the airport on time. It has definitely one of the smoothest and nice plane I have ever been so far."
Cons: "The pilot when landing landed too fast and the plane lost its balance for a second but other than that everything was great."
Pros: "Food, crew and comfort was alright"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. There was not announcement. Everyone rushed to board and was very chaotic"
Cons: "Boarding mix up, which was completely Lufthansa's responsibility, delayed my flight to Istanbul for one hour which caused my missing my connection with another airline. This in turn cost me the original flight and a new ticket purchase of at an exorbent price."
Pros: "Leg room and the chairs were great."
Pros: "Free refreshments. Funny cabin crew!"
Cons: "There was very confusing and contradictory information on what you can take with you on top of your cabin luggage. e.g. Can you or can you not take a small shoulder bag with you."
Pros: "Overall, was good!"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean. The service was great. Food was OK. I enjoyed the wine service. Lots of movie choices. HOW does one get "bumped up" to Premium Economy?"
Cons: "The seats in Economy were the most uncomfortable I have ever sat in for such a long time nine and a half hours. All six of us found them to be uncomfortable. No seat bottom cushioning. I had a back pain. Boarding started with the First Class and Business Class first. It took an additional 20 minutes for Economy class to start boarding. The line was very, very long and interfered with other travelers in the airport terminal. "boarding area to Frankfurt was cramped" When we arrived in Denver, only five Custom Agents were on duty to process our arrival passports, although there are 14 control stations at Denver. It appeared as though the Custom Agents were not aware of the arrival of the Lufthansa 747 nor the one that followed. All other Custom in Europe were much more efficient and move people through quickly. What a bad first impress made by the USA Customs people."
Pros: "no problems"
Cons: "everything worked"
Pros: "This was actually a United Airlines flight connecting to a Lufthansa flight in Munich. The crew was friendly and thanked us individually for flying with them as we prepared for landing."
Pros: "everything on time on the right place with the right numbers ... perfect ;)"
Cons: "seats on LH435 from ORD to MUC too small and tight"
Pros: "Handling crew was great . Seat was comfortable!!! Meal was very good and tasty"
Pros: "I am trying to figure out the difference between Premium Economy and Economy. Looks like the seats are a bit wider, but the meals are just about the same. We waited 45 minutes a Newark for a Gate, but that is not the fault of the airline or the crew"
Pros: "I like Lufthansa. We were treated very well."
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."
Pros: "Lufthan changed aircraft and totally screwed by seat assignment, very bad."
Cons: "My wifes luggage was lost, no followup at all from Lufthansa (main) or in Seville which was our destination. We had to call to find out any information. Once the bag was found and delivered to Seville, Lufthansa personnel again did not tell us nor would they deliver the bag to our hotel as the driver had already left. We then had to wait another day to have the bag delivered to Granada. Terrible customer service, the bag was missing for four days causing us to spend time shopping for clothes rather than experiencing the city."
Pros: "All meals provided were pretty bad. The premium economy seats are worth the extra money."
Cons: "My chair did not recline at all, which make long fly very uncomfortable. When I complained to fly attendant, she said that there is nothing she can do about it. The table in front of the chair was also very hard to open."
Cons: "I wasn't even on this airline my booking reference said that I was. I had this airlines flight number I go to the gate to check in, and then for me I'm on Air Canada. This was a mass from the start I will never use this airline or Air Canada again they ruin my login and told me it's still usable we had a delayed for three hours on the plane. Never never again!"
Cons: "My tv screen stopped responding 6 hours into the flight so that I could not watch it for the remaining 2.5 hours"
Pros: "Of course, a short flight, but the sandwich was fresh and staff helpful. Thank you."
Cons: "delay on boarding time-problems with the aircraft"
Pros: "The flight was on-time!"
Cons: "The food was mediocre."
Cons: "Lufthansa treated us very poorly. When we arrived late in FRA, the gate attendant was extremely rude while trying to rebook and actually left us in the middle of rebooking because her shift ended. No one came to take her place!! She actually swore at us!! We were only able to rebook by calling the Lufthansa call centre and had to spend a very uncomfortable overnight at the airport without any certainty of when we would fly out. Lufthansa finally got us out on the same flight as booked but 24 hours later. And then, of course, they lost our luggage. Terrible overall experience."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Had the seats in the emergency exit row had liftable handles between the seats, it would have been more comfortable... the rigid seats where not easy on my hips for a 9 hour flight"
Pros: "Staff are very nice"
Cons: "Delay in flight of more than 45 minutes"
Cons: "The delay was ridiculous. Seats are the usual tiny ones so for a big guy they suck but over all great trip"
Pros: "Plenty of room in economy for my 6'3" frame, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Everything was great - more selection on the movies/tv would be a plus"
Pros: "Nothing positive to say"
Cons: "Originating flight was delayed, so missed connection in Montreal and had to be rerouted. After going through 5 airports to reach our final destination, we finally made it - without our luggage!!! To make matters worse, the complete and extreme lack of empathy on behalf of Air Canada's customer service desk was less than appreciated by us.... As it turns out, Air Canada was aware all along that we would miss our connection; however, they still had us board our originating flight. The gate agent should have been conscientious and informed us that the delay was ongoing with our flight being number 22+ on the tarmac to take off, thus guaranteeing our missed connection. They should have rebooked us on another flight from our original destination vs rebooking us upon arrival in Montreal to miss further connecting flights. Very disappointed!!!!! Based on this experience alone, never again will I or my family travel Air Canada."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Food tasted good. I pad entertainment was nice"
Cons: "Paid extra for the premium seats. When I went to the lounge they were very rude and said I signed up too late and did not even offer for me to pay to get in. Customer service on the phone was very rude again. The Toronto airport also is a hot mess. Some more. TV screens with gate info would be nice"
Cons: "Filthy No entertainment Had to pay for beer and wine"
Pros: "Food was okay. Crew was okay."
Cons: "Plane was so packed and tight we felt like sardines. Even a few more inches of room would make a huge difference. They also added two or three extra rows to the back of the plane. Folks were practically sitting in the crew staging area and literally directly next to the bathroom door. So glad we didn't get one of those seats."
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"
Pros: "Professional and polite crew"
Cons: "Did not realize Air Canada Rouge did not have screens at every seat, made the 10 hour flight a little longer. Not a deal breaker and was overall pleased with the flight."
Pros: "Air crew was nice. Pilot nice too."
Cons: "Old plane. Smaller seat size than comparable airlines. Terrible food: a slice of oily cske, served in a plastic sleeve, must be the new low for an international breakfast...no individual tvs on the sets....hello, step into the 21st century.... And the selection available via your iPad or laptop and their wifi was small, and old...we had paid to upgrade our economy tickets to the next level, and we expected more...the size of the upgraded seats was not great and there wa no foot rest to put your feet on, which is a significant help to someone who flies so many hours and can assist with circulation...."
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"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours but no one was in much of a rush to get it going"
Pros: "The smooth take off & landing"
Cons: "Too hot and cramped"
Cons: "more movie and technology availability."
Pros: "Zoned boarding"
Cons: "Food limited and must be purchased. Entertainment must have downloaded app."
Pros: "The crew, that it all"
Cons: "The plane was clearly an older plane, there was NO on board entertainment for a 12 hr flight. The food was not good and there was no free wine - which is not normal for international"
Pros: "The gate crew was instrumental in helping us board our flight when the first leg was delayed and or connection time was only 30 minutes."
Cons: "Of all the international airlines I have flown, this was by far the least well equipped for a long haul flight. There was no entertainment (we had to download an app to your personal device beforehand, which we were not informed about until already onboard). There were iPads for rent, but not nearly enough for the number of passengers requesting. The dinner was a good size, but there were no additional snacks, only small sized drinks offered, and alcohol was not complimentary, and a smaller size than what's provided while in N America for the same price. Overall, I was quite unimpressed with Air Canada, and will avoid flying with them in the future, when possible."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The fact that you will have to travel almost 10 hours with absolutely no entertainment tv music etc. Not even a video on an era when Airlines should offer this as a standard. That was bad. Really bad"
Pros: "Served edible food (not the best quality)"
Cons: "Uncomfortable; No source of entertainment; No functional charging ports; charges for snacks; some staff seemed rude"
Pros: "We left and arrived on time. Crew was courteous. Streaming service was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "Food was not good, and there was little food and drink service. Having to pay for an emergency exit seat."
Cons: "Lousy food and no snacks"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Food, seating and entertainment was poor overall. No tvs/ entertainment of any sort"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding was typical."
Cons: "What a horrible experience. Thanks for spreading out the screaming children evenly (really nice on a long flight). No entertainment at all. Getting off the plane was a God send, till I found out my luggage was separated/lost in 2 different parts of the world , none of which was were I was, it showed up 3 days later, 1 damaged."
Cons: "It was an Air Canada Rouge flight sold as Lufthansa. Bait and switch."
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "Not clean aircraft. My luggage left behind in Toronto.No entertainment unless you knew by chance that you need to download an application and having your own device.."
Pros: "The staff where friendly and easy going, the boarding was also organized and because the flight was really full of you gave the carry on to be checked they allowed you to priority board"
Cons: "The food countinues to be and issue I flew the same airline 2 years ago and the meal options had not changed. The salad was so bland I was certain that I was eating plastic food."
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."
Pros: "The 2-3-2 seat configuration is better for travelling as a duo. We were provided with blankets and pillows for the 9 HR flight. Food was quite tasty for airline meals."
Cons: "Host staff made very few trips up and down the aisles. Have not before been on an Air Canada flight where there are no seat back screens, so it was a surprise not to have any in flight entertainment."
Cons: "You need to warn people there is no in flight entertainment!"
Pros: "flight was fine pleasant flight attendants was late flight so slept a lot now much to add"
Cons: "On the Montreal-Athens leg the meal was free but of poor quality and quantity. Breakfast was just a piece of banana bread... No entertainment system in the aircraft. Had to rent iPad with very poor quality earphones (struggled to listen to the movies) Also some of the movies were not adjusted for the iPad which translated into using only a portion of the iPad screen."
Cons: "Their entertainment system relied on customer iPads! Software proved nearly impossible to install. Food service very slow."
Cons: "The worst flight i ever had.We payed so much money and the service in the flight was poor.No snacks, no breakfast,no moister towels to clean our selfs like other companys do.Got in Athens ok went to get our luggages no luggages to get.It took me about one hour to get everything straight.I had to leave for my island because the Taxi was waiting for me.I got my luggages after 3 days delivered in my home.I will not travel again with AIR CANADA."
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: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew did not cater to the passengers. Every international flight I've been on, the crew members always ask if we want more snacks or drinks. I was never approached. Also, I asked for an extra blanket and was told no."
Cons: "No free alcohol. I know it sounds like a stupid complaint, but alcohol makes these flights way easier to handle. Also, no tv screens of any kind. You have to download the Air Canada app before hand so you can stream only their enabled content on their in flight wifi. It felt like I was flying the international version of Southwest."
Pros: "Service was fair"
Cons: "Lst 2 of 3 suitcases, no entertainment in seatback, personal device entertainment was very limited and dated, wine is not complimentary with meals on a long flight, screaming babies, overhead light would not work for the right side or middle of plane. As an Alliance member, you failed miserably. We will be seeking partial refund for you sendng one bag to Athens, one to Zurich and one to Munich."
Pros: "Nothing worth writing home about"
Cons: "Need own (Apple only) device with downloaded app to get entertainment. That's infuriating. From what l saw, many who tried to do that still didn't/couldn't get it. Tan out of devices fir rent, not that l ever wanted to rent one."
Pros: "Very satisfied with the flight."
Pros: "Cheap and direct to Athens from Toronto."
Cons: "Tiniest seats ever, no plugs, no screen for a 10 hour flight, and I always get the shits after eating the food on air Canada rouge."
Pros: "Staff and plane were fabulous"
