Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "The infotainment system could be better. My system was not working for the first 3 hours and then the sound went out out completely after 2 hours of use. Also the airbus model still use the outdated 2 prone headphone and I was not able to use my noise canceling headphones."
Pros: "I loved the Awesome Check in lady from United airlines, her name is Sandra and she is pure awesomeness. I also loved the air hostesses for the care they have given me from the time I set foot On the plane until I left."
Cons: "The attitude of the Lufthansa gate staff was anything but welcoming. Reaching the gate for the Lufthansa flight was greeted with my name shout from a distance, and my apologise for being late were met with shrugs!

Cons: "Just as first flight, old plane, cramped seats."
Cons: "The list of movies was poor"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Checking in on-line was not very "user friendly". Our aircraft had to be replaced causing a 2 hour delay, part of which was an ATC sequencing delay. The 50 minute ATC delay couldn't be controlled by LH, but the original equipment replacement was at the bottom of the overall delay. My "A" window seat in economy had significantly reduce foot space due to a metal box installed in the space. The seat was not particularly well designed, but it's economy so you get what you get. The food was average at best."
Pros: "Outstanding cabin crew."
Cons: "Mediocre food with totally inadequate available snacks between meal services. Inadequate meal before landing."
Pros: "Boarding was great. Easy. Fast"
Cons: "Seat was cramped. Blanket was inferior."
Pros: "Hot and cold drinks offered welcomingly"
Cons: "The cabin needs better climatization (air conditioning). It was unacceptably hot at the very beginning, immediately after boarding the flight"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Seat wasn't the best in premium economy. Quite hard with little support."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "There were a lot of screaming/crying children on the flight, turning up the headphones to as much as I could bear did not eliminate the noise. I ended up developing a cold after the flight, it was not a great vacation."
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: "I LOVED the Crew. Exceptional! Polite, accommodating, kind, friendly. Just wonderful. The food was pretty good too! The entertainment was great. I loved that the toilets were in a separate area downstairs! The flight was overall pretty comfortable. The cabin temperature was also great, not the freezing temperature found on American planes. Thank you LUFTHANSA!!!"
Cons: "The flight was late boarding and late arriving in Munich. I had a connecting flight to make and that was a harrowing experience. I had no precedence offers the other passengers in deplaning. I was given no help in making my connecting flight. I had to queue up for border control. I had to go up and down numerous escalators. I was stopped by a policeman asking for papers which I had already given to border control. I had to take a train and change terminals. My connecting flight was departing from the farthest gate possible in the terminal. I was running the entire time, and I barely made it. Had I not been running, I would have missed my connection."
Cons: "Flight delayed by about an hour"
Cons: "They switched me to a different flight saying I won't make my connection due to high traffic at the BUD airport and they never told me that instead of arriving to JFK, they are flying to Newark airport. Having not known this at all, I had no ride home, super inconvenienced and I was 2 hours plus away from my home in Jersey. Horrible experience"
Pros: "Moscow to Munich then Paris were good flights. When weather in Munich delayed our return take-off from Paris, the crew did their best to communicate. Upon arrival a Luft employee was at the gate to escort 11 of us to our connecting flight to Moscow. She took us to a special window for passport check, then our own train car to the other terminal. Bravo! Other airlines leave one to navigate alone. Thankyou Lufthansa. Food was decent on both flights in this day of many 'No food' local flights."
Cons: "Zip. All was good for these well seasoned travelers. We appreciate the extra attention."
Cons: "Entertainment center was not working properly. Had to be rebooted twice."
Pros: "Good flight good seats smooth ride."
Cons: "Boarding was not organized."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. The seats had those "wings" on either side of the head rest to help keep your head from bobbing back and forth. There were a few good movies to watch that were current, but a lot of old movies that we had zero interest in."
Cons: "The flight was considered a Lufthansa flight and had a Lufthansa flight number, but was operated by Air Canada. We could not check in online ahead of time for some reason. When we got to the airport, we tried to check in at the Lufthansa kiosk and check in line, but they told us we had to go to the Air Canada area. The ticketing/check in process was very confusing. As for the food, the chicken "wrap" was not a wrap, and was a weird Hot-Pocket type meal. After each meal, we ended up having to hold our garbage for quite some time which made manuvering in and out of seats a little tricky. I wish the seat cushion had a little more cushion since we were sitting for so long. Also at some point the overhead lights came on and stayed on, which was annoying if you were trying to nap."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment options."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours, for a reason they never made clear after they let the passengers wait in line for 45 minutes to board. Once aboard, the Lufthansa planes were much much less comfortable than the Air Canada plane I took to Frankfurt. There is very little space and the seats are crammed together. The food they served was very bad, especially again in comparison with Air Canada. Once we arrived in Toronto, they made us wait nearly an hour before exiting the aircraft. It would seem that the Toronto airport would have to know we were coming and should have prepared accordingly, but apparently not. We sat, several passengers missed their connecting flights and were angry. I nearly missed my flight, having to run and race through customs (who are in no hurry)."
Pros: "They know what they're doing!!"
Cons: "No complaints at all!"
Pros: "Great service, great friendly crew and great food!"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Every thing is excellent"
Pros: "The Lufthansa flight was great. The food and drinks for 1 hr and 45 min was satisfactory. The airplane was clean and crew was friendly. Too bad only 10% of the flight was gone by Lufthansa. The rest was done by United Airlines. The airplane was new and clean, the crew was friendly as well.The food at UA was so cheap it is a shame. On the domestic leg they give you 5 fools fish or crackers and soft drinks for 4 hrs flight. At the same time each and every passenger was asked personally if he or she will buy breakfast making the person feel guilty if not buying breakfast."
Cons: "Lufthansa is good. UA food is cheap and not enough on the Trans Atlantick flight and hard liquor is not free. On the domestic flight they do not give you food even if the flight is early in the morning and 4 hrs long. That is a shame. Moreover they try to sale you a breakfast package that is design not to get spoiled for three months. The nutrition value of that package is zero even I believe it is bad for you. This is only in the USA. It is a shame how our Airlines treate the American passengers."
Pros: "My flight from Frankfurt to Detroit on Lufthansa was very enjoyable. The crew were great. They were very friendly and attentive to the passengers. I would choose to fly on Lufthansa again in the future."
Cons: "Lufthansa airline has no intention to help their passengers and happily see their passengers suffer from the airline's mistakes"
Pros: "The crew did their best to help several people whose seat requests were not honored including a woman traveling with a dog who was given an aisle instead of a window seat. Crew came around with water and juice frequently."
Cons: "Seat assignments were not honored. My husband and I were seated in two different rows even though we requested to sit together in an aisle and window seat and checked in the day before the flight This happened on all four legs of a trip to South Africa. Extremely narrow seats and little leg room. Felt like a cattle car. An aggressive woman with disruptive, screaming children was allowed to Torture passengers for a good five hours of the flight before the bursar finally moved her. This was after several hours of complaints from other passengers. She was eventually moved twice due to passenger complaints. The situation should have been handled after the first complaints which occurred two hours into the flight before the situation completely detiorated Food was terrible and meals ran out."
Pros: "Crew of Lufthansa is great. I am truly appreciative of their friendliness"
Cons: "It was 747-8 plane and I was in the middle of side seating. Maybe because it was the second leg of the journey, but i just felt I was cramped..I am 5'8 and 153 pounds! No fault of the crew though! Just the nature of the equipment. The previous leg from Delhi was on A-300 (double decker) and felt to have more space. If economy premium were a little more affordable, it would have been preferred"
Pros: "They put us in a hotel."
Cons: "I lost my trip to Venice and almost didn't make my cruise ship. Lost $300 non refundable room deposit. Nothing more than an "I'm sorry." from Lufthansa. I'll never fly them again."
Cons: "I was nauseous during the plane ride walked to back of plane and was told I wasn't allowed to be back there. When that is where the bathrooms were. I asked for an extra pillow when there were 10 free seats the crew never honored my request. Not once did they ask if I was ok. The food was inedible. And I was completely uncomfortable the entire flight."
Pros: "The crew was focused on our needs but was not able to help in my situation."
Cons: "The flight was very crowded and I had a HUGE individual sitting next to me in that he actually overflowed into my seat. Due to the fullness of the plane it was imposable for me to move and very uncomfortable. For an individual this size there should be a requirement for them to have a business class seat or to purchase 2 seats. The food was very disappointing overall."
Pros: "Considering this was a 10 hour flight, I thought the plane was comfortable with decent leg room in economy class. We were served two hot meals, both of which were very good. There was also complimentary wine, beer, and spirits on board. It's been a while since I've flown overseas and was impressed with the wide array of available movies and in-flight entertainment. The crew was great and very attentive."
Cons: "It was the most chaotic boarding process I have ever seen. They had us at a gate with seats for about 50 people so people were crowded into the walkway area of the terminal. The announcements were very hard to hear if you weren't right by the person making them. There was no orderly boarding. Instead, there was a mad rush for those that weren't elite status of some sort to begin boarding."
Pros: "Flight was delayed"
"On-time landed early too- excellent service around!"
"The flight actually was fine. Just a lot of delays."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "United is the literal worst. Economy basic where you are forced to check and pay for your carry on?! Horrible service in the terminal, staff more interested in their phones than helping. Wifi didn’t work. I’m the future I will pay more and fly anyone else. Never making this mistake again."
Cons: "Delay. I lost my first flight and almost the second as well"
Pros: "Never got on flight."
Cons: "No delays and compensation for inconvenience. Paid extra for seat upgrade which I never sat in."
Cons: "Food was not good, flavor wise"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. I was traveling with my 11 month old and they were super helpful and very friendly."
Cons: "I was bummed that this plane didn’t have TVs at each seat. You were able to stream all kinds of free movies and shows on the United app but I was holding a baby on my lap and couldn’t use my phone as well."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Not able to change our seat and I understood checked bag per person was included. The charged me 120 for two bagd"
Pros: "I appreciated the professionalism, prompt care of passengers and dedication to everyone’s safety."
Cons: "The last leg of the flight was a rough landing and a delayed in Vienna. I realize weather could be the culprit."
Pros: "Not much, no internet, small seats, cost doubled because I had to know pay hotel for a night."
Cons: "Flight was 4 hrs late arriving, therefore I missed my connection flight to Dallas. I had to spend the night at a cost of $200.00 at Holiday Inn, arrived 24 hrs later. Not United fault, weather related. This is my 3rd United flight that was delayed by hours. Get first flight out in morning, less chance for hours of delay."
Pros: "Everything United I love you ❤️"
Cons: "On flights that have seating available all around the cabin you should let people sit where they want"
Cons: "Delayed. Charged for my bag even tho i have the United explorer Visa. Skipped me with pretzels and when I asked for some, it was as if i was asking fir something extraordinary!"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "No wifi or substantial snacks/dinner. Paid for bag"
Pros: "Enjoyed the extra space from Economy Plus - really made a difference from the complete sardine cans in regular economy. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Unfortunately the crew blocked the path to the toilets in the back of the plane for over an hour... I've never seen a crew move so slow. Also, the DirecTV screens in front of each seat were annoying, as they put the controls on the armrest so they were constantly being turned on accidentally."
Cons: "Seats space was very toght"
Cons: "The worst airport customer service rebooking agent experience I ever had in my life. They had seats on the flight I had the booking on but wouldn't let me go just because there was less than an hour left in the flight, still in the bag check window. Ver very bad agents at the rebooking desk"
Cons: "Flight cancelled with no explanation."
Pros: "My whole trip had to be mixed because I couldn’t get out of Fresno originally"
Cons: "United was very limited in options to get me to my destination so my whole trip had to be cancelled. A trip I had planned for a year. Will probably never fly United Again."
Pros: "Notices of changes before anyone else got them like gate changes."
Cons: "Running through Ohare to catch my connection"
Pros: "The boarding was a bit confusing by having another carrier handle the boarding. It was a Swiss airline but we had to check in with United...? Entertainment was great, easy to use. Flight was seamless with no rough turbulence. Smooth landing. Very good experience in all."
Cons: "The food and comfort could have been better, not bad overall. The fact that the connecting flight info (gate number) could have been shown on the screen much sooner so there would be a smooth transition,"
Pros: "One ground agent worked hard to communicate what decision the airline had made regarding the flight delay in response to aircraft malfunction. His words helped establish a priority on which passages need to be rebooked"
Cons: "Flight Attendant communication was less than professional. Speed, pitch, and I found it generally annoying"
Pros: "Enjoyed the movie selections on United app"
Cons: "Crew took a long time to serve drinks. Did not like the amount of legroom for 5 hour flight."
Cons: "Cacelled then delayed twice. United workers are also very rude. I give them a big ol"
Pros: "Boarding was easy crew was pleasant. Shouldn't have to pay extra for tv, ticket prices are high enough as it is!!"
Cons: "No leg room which isn't good for circulation on a 4 hr flight!"
Cons: "They should board the plane from the back to front, it just makes sense to do it this way, less people out if place and it would board faster"
Pros: "My experience with Air Canada was all around pleasant. I would definitely fly with them again. Any negative aspect during my travels was due to their partner United Airlines."
Cons: "If flying within the States we used United Airlines; a partner of Air Canada. The flight itinerary changed numerous times before our departure, including two days before we left. The change added an additional layover, and put us at our destination nearly 6 hours later than out original booking. This meant we lost a decent portion of the first day of our honeymoon. However, we were forced to stay an extra day when our return flight was cancelled. After spending 8 hours in the airport we were informed that our Monday flight was cancelled, and the next available flight would not be until Wednesday! United Airlines let us down on the way to our destination and on our trip home. Air Canada was great, but I dread having to use their partner United Airlines."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Process of going through customs in Halifax instead of Newark was very efficient. I didn't order food or use inflight entertainment."
Cons: "didn't know how to download the entertainment system"
Pros: "Great flight! On time. Pleasant crew. Good snacks"
Pros: "Short flight.... no food or ENT. But quick easy and pretty on time. Thx."
Pros: "Everything its gteat"
Cons: "I fly out of Halifax once a week and the flight has let 4 hours late two weeks in a row with out compensation. I missed my connection flight and was forced to sleep in airport. Never again Delta all the way."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "I had to pay an extra 155 for a seat in back of 1st class!!"
Cons: "Had to run from complete opposite ends of the Denver airport to catch my flight. I had 10 minutes once off the plane and in the terminal to reach my gate to SF and I was in a walking boot do to an ankle injury. Once sweaty on board the flight was turned back to the terminal delayed three hours and I missed my flight home that day. I then spent from 11pm to 8am in the terminal"
Cons: "Again all of it was poor"
Pros: "The staff was wonderful"
Cons: "Bummpy ride"
Cons: "Wifi didn't work. Entertainment options limited."
Pros: "I got to fly with friends. It was a short enough flight."
Cons: "You have to pay to use tv, movies, and internet. The tv screen's controls look over a decade old. I hate watching nothing but advertisements so i can buy into United's overpriced entertainment. The plane itself looked and felt ancient. I couldnt sleep to save my life. And the pilots voice was non existent."
Pros: "Smooth flight and on time great customer service"
Pros: "All the crew members were polite and smiling. I felt very welcomed and happy to be in their care."
Cons: "Red eye flights are nearly impossible for me to fall asleep during and this was the same. I sat near the window and it was quite loud the whole flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, decent drink options"
Cons: "Boarded late. There were no seats at the gate so everyone had to just stand around waiting to board. No announcement or apology. Took 25 minutes after we landed for the first bag to come down the chute at baggage claim. My first class dining options were chips, pretzels, or a banana. Short flight but still."
Cons: "i booked my flight on Kayak and immediately been cancelled dunno why"
Pros: "1st flight left on time and was comfortable."
Cons: "2nd flight missed due to multiple flights from gate 130. No seats close to gate. Speakers not loud enough. Garbled speakers. To much background noise. Very confusing. Was able to rebook later flight but very inconvenient and not optimum."
Pros: "The pilot comes on and tells us what's going on. I like being informed."
Cons: "When offered a drink, how come we aren't offered the whole can of coke? If we don't want that much we can always say no. Also, I rated entertainment and food low only because there weren't any of these to rate. The overhead was so full that I couldn't place my bag in the overhead. The luggage check in is no longer a service a customer is provided if 1) I have to pay to check one in. 2). I have to lug it around with me only to have no place to put it. 3) the amount of time it takes to get off and on the plane because the line backs up while everyone waits on prior passengers to get their luggage into or out of the overhead (some are too short, too weak, ot placed their overhead ten rows away). Yikes!"
Cons: "Comfort?? What comfort?? This will be the last time I'll use United !!!"
Pros: "Speed and ease of our return home."
Cons: "We got in SO early, there was no gate ready for us at Newark, so we had to stay on board at least 30 min. Also they didnt allow even 1 person waiting in queue for bathroom, so if you sat down you'd lose your place."
Pros: "Overall, this was an OK flight; nothing to brag about."
Cons: "The flight attendant told me that I did not need to collect my bag in Toronto and that it would automatically be sent onward to Halifax. DO NOT BELIEVE THIS. All United passengers arriving in Canada MUST manually gather their luggage at baggage claim in Toronto and clear customs manually. ONLY Air Canada has this automatic option. Even if the United flight has an Air Canada code share United passengers MUST clear customs manually. How hard is this for flight attendants to understand?"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours, was suppose to depart at 10:50pm, did not take off until around 2am. Constantly changing gates. Tiring experience."
