Overbooked flight. No seat for me. I had to stay extra day because of it. No customer service available for a whole that time. I spent 3h trying to get in touch with them. No luck.
There was no special meal on board even though I spent hours on hold to request one!
Pros: "This is how my trip started that day. Missed my checkin window by 10 mins do to waiting in traffic for 45 mins, because of wreck. Got to the ticket counter at 8:35 and my flight my was set to take of at 9:30. There wear others in the same boat as me, we where all flying with American. I will Never ever fly with American again! The Lady was so rude then she said we were disgrutle when we ask to speak to a manger about trying to board even though or flight didnt leave until 9:30. Not Military Friendly at all. So I ran down to Lufthansa and talk with a guy at the ticket counter that was understanding of the sistuation, he told me what to do once a Book my trip through Kayak he checked me in and got me right to the front and on the plane for the next flight that left 2 hours after my missed flight. I book my trip and got through Tsa all before my flight with american even took off. When I boared the plane the cabin crew was very helpful and laughing and joking with the passagners their smiles brighten my day and made me feel at easy. I was stressed out about missing my flight with American Airlines and that lady at the ticket counter that when on got my flight with Lufthanse I felt like they were my friends and that I have been flying with them before. I will always use Lufthansa when fliying back home back to the states! Thank you to flight crew and men and women at the ticket counters!!"
Cons: "If I could change one thing it would be better food, or the drink protion size or just give out canned drinks. But over all the best flight I have taken in a long time!!"
Cons: "I could not make it for the 1st part of my journey due to personal circumstances. There was no notification from Lufthansa that my return journey would be been cancelled as well. I found out 1 hour before the actual flight. Was offered a replacement ticket for over £900. Bought a new one with BA."
Cons: "Problems when boarding. Some real upset customers at Valencia Airport who had too much baggage. Another proposal: Provide Fanta :-)"
Pros: "Service leg room and service with a smile"
Pros: "Short flight but staff very attentive, food good."
Pros: "Short flight, snacks, timely take off and landing."
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: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"
Cons: "Lufthansa's narrowbodies have one of the most uncomfortable seats in the sky. These slimline seats are built with a central beam running vertically along the midline of the seat, making it very uncomfortable with your spine."
Pros: "The meals were very good!"
Pros: "The service and the entertainment system"
Cons: "Food was not up to the mark, which it almost always is. The crew were a little rude at times, which is also not very common with this airlines."
Cons: "We missed our flight because of schengen visa as we booked our flight through your app you also didn't help us about schengen visa that we' need"
Cons: "We had 30 minutes delay"
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "No entertainment food Horrible"
Pros: "Great movie choices . Flight on time, comfortable. No turbulence, smooth."
Cons: "I did not like the food … I’m allergic to dairy so I can’t have cheese or cream in pasta or milk in polenta with beef stew. So there wasn’t anything for me to eat. Plus the crew should tell you what kind of pasta you’re getting! I got the pasta but I didn’t know it was filled with cheese and cream but by the time they came back to me I told them that I can’t have this they didn’t have anymore left of anything so I didn’t have anything to eat. And the breakfast the next day was awful. And by the way I saw that the crew had a really good meal. I should be able to pick up meal ahead of time… When you’re booking. It was a long day with no hot meal."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Great food and drinks. Very helpful staff."
Cons: "Lufthansa has a horrible website. I wanted to check in online but I had to no reservation or ticket number is provided so I had to go to my old reservations to find it. .Next I wanted to pay for my luggage online but there was no link given. It says you can do it cheaper on Lufthansa.com but I could not find where you can actually do that. All in all spend 30 minutes with no result. Had to pay at check in $44 instead of $27. And it was just one of many other problems and inconveniences with their website."
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: "Attitude of staff very poor at a request for a drink of water"
Cons: "Cancelled flight."
Cons: "Cancelled then delayed then had to stay in Frankfurt and was a day late"
Pros: "The crew were very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "I'm more used to travelling on Ryanair routs so it was a most welcome suprise to experience lufthansa. I went out and back with ye and even though there was a small delay going out I made concections easily. Well done to all your team . Thanks. I will definitely use lufthansa whenever can."
Cons: "Very very long walk plus train to baggage reclaim at Munich"
Pros: "Punctuality, rapid boarding, nice to still have free snacks (choice of sandwich and full range of drunks)"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Smooth process. Regular updates."
Cons: "Late departure."
Cons: "Check in 2x and security 2x Then rushing about"
Pros: "Friendliness of staff Efficiency"
Cons: "Overall a very good service and no complaints but if In House entertainment was provided it would enhance the experience."
Pros: "Online check in worked well through app."
Cons: "If you leave something on the plane, don't expect for it to be handed in. My iPad disappeared on the flight. The woman at the boarding gate in Bham kept shouting at everyone, she was really rude, both flights were late taking off."
Pros: "Perfectly okay flight, slept through with no disturbances. Crew were friendly enough and landed fine. Airport took me a while to figure out though."
Cons: "Late landing We landed in another terminal to the one our connection was at. Had to run and go through security again Had two minutes to spare and they refused to allow us to board. Very rude The distance to catch the connecting flight The delay at security The lack of trying to let us on the plane. The rudeness I experience"
Cons: "Cramped space in economy class."
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff."
Pros: "I think this airline is a very good airline, but this flight was shorter so it didn't have all of the perks of the longer ones that it usually has."
Cons: "In Lisbon we had to be bused out to the airplane to board, so it was a long process."
Pros: "Crew nice. Clean aircraft. Flight smooth, arrived to destination 40 min earlier. Nothing to complain except I wish there was more room for legs . Food okish, coffee / tea were good, tomato juice not good, did not try the wines. Biggest disappointed was the breakfast in quality only carbs : muffin, granola bar and tiny fruit salad where most of the fruit was frozen. But these are small things, overall a very good flight, I will definitely fly again with them. I watched a couple of movies released this year that I wanted to see. Good job Lufthansa!"
Pros: "Interesting the bathroom downstairs...then asking people to not form lines on the stairs makes the process a little more complicated...if a person has mobility problems, which restroom should they use?"
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing. Lack of clear signs and announcements didn't help to form lines. People just went to the gates after families, handicapped, vets, etc..passed the gates, business and first. Improving that process by forming ordered lines would help. Entertainment presented movies that are old and have been dysplayed on flights for years. Entertainment in general is poor. Seating not as expected! I chose my seat online and once on the plane I found out the organization of the seats was different than the one displlayed online. I chose an aisle sea on a 3 seat row and I ended up on a 4 seat row and squeezed in between two other passengers. The seats are "growing" smaller and smaller, and the shape and mobility of the chairs makes them uncomfortable. On my row there were 3 screens installed on the ahead seats, and my screen was by 3/4 in front of the passenger on my right. That made difficult controlling the screen function with me stretching my harm over the other passenger's face. I payed $2,000 for that flight in economy. $2,000 for an economy class is not cheap! And you don't offer a great experience. Either lower the price or improve the overall experience."
Cons: "Ridiculous policy that couldn't get seat until 23 hours in advance, then that wasn't even true. Then misinformed me about what kind of seat I had been assigned. Then insisted I check a bag that did not need to be checked. Then the food was inedible. Flight happened to be late so I missed my connection, and they offered some more misinformation in that regard; There were of course human beings (staff) to deal with, but they had been reduced by Lufthansa's rules and systems so they were just robots, repeating over and over again inflexible policies. Horrible!"
Cons: "Everything was good not great"
Pros: "as usual flight itself was okay"
Cons: "the flight was delayed by 50 min reason was because the flight crew was stuck in a traffic jam from kiev city centre to airport by 1h. the flight crew stayed overnight in Kiev city centre which is 30-40 min drive away from city centre and had time to own accord to have a walk around the city centre in the morning. So I wonder why the crew cannot travel earlier to airport taking into account potential traffic jams. Knowingly I trvaelled to the airport about 2.5h before departure and made it perfectly on time to the airport, even though working in the morning, whereas the crew couldnt make it. maybe Lufthansa should change their crew hotel policy in particular for towns with notorious traffic jams like Kiev.."
Pros: "Lufthansa has us on a short connection in Munich. But instead of bumping us like Air Canada, which does not care about customers, Lufthansa got a little van for our family of 5, took us through expedited passport control and helped us reach our flight. They have done a superb job and it is great to see an airline that has a very capable ground crew as well as air crew. Lufthansa made us feel like they cared about us and trust me traveling with three kids under 6 we very much appreciated it and they will have our return business!!"
Cons: "My Name is Randy Frye. I left my head phone on the plane, spoke with a Lufthansa rep they called and said I would not have time to go back for them but they would send them to me. then the flight going from Munich to Frankfurt was late so I missed my flight from Frankfurt to Dusseldorf. Waited for 3 hours then the flight to Dusseldorf was canceled. waited for 2 hours for a train ticket. then had to take another train to the airport to get a rental car. GOT TO THE HOTEL AT 11:30pm Saturday night had to be at work at 7:00am NOT HAPPY"
Pros: "Lufthansa is one of few airlines in Europe with pure class and excellent service. Even in economy!"
Pros: "Realistically the only even remotely like able thing about this flight was that the flight crew was pretty pleasant especially given how early in the morning it was."
Cons: "Honestly there wasn't much if anything to like about this flight. It was supposed to take off at 2:10am and I don't think we even boarded the plane until after 2:30. What's more is no one passed along any information, so no one had any idea how long a wait it was going to be. Needless to say it was very early in the morning, which is a horrible time to be left waiting and information-less. The delay definitely affected my perception of the rest of the flight as well. The comfort level was completely average -I'm a tall person so I've come to expect not being comfortable on airplanes, through no fault of the airlines. That being said despite it being a four hour flight, there was no entertainment on the plane unless you had downloaded the Lufthansa app and streamed through a mobile device. Given that there's no wifi in the Munich airport I don't see how this even would have been an option. Finally, the breakfast of eggs was really not up to par with what I've had on other airlines. I suppose it's unreasonable to think there could have been a food upgrade, but given that we were left waiting over an hour to board the plane (that not including actually finishing the boarding, taxi-ing to a runway and leaving) with no opportunity for food or drink, it would have been nice to actually have a decent tasting meal once we finally got going."
Pros: "I've flown on many different airlines since I was 10 years old and hands down this Lufthansa flight was the best and smoothest flight I have ever experienced. First of all, the plane was very comfortable and had good leg room. The flight staff were all extremely courteous and attentive. There was one point where I was reading in the dark and the crew member asked if I wanted the light turned on to read! Normally I don't sleep on flights, and the same crew member asked if I wanted ice cream since I don't feel like sleeping. The crew seemed to have this magic ability to make the flight more comfortable without the passenger having to even think about it, or try to ask for extra service. All of the crew were just very outstanding and organized throughout the entire flight, they were all generally very helpful and kind. By the time I got off the 14 hour flight, I didn't feel even the slightest bit tired or anxious, I was able to spend time with my friends in Budapest upon landing and stay out till 2 am without having to sleep or rest because the flight was so good."
Pros: "Sitting 1 hour in aircraft while the bypassing plane stopped to switch the crew because of limited working hours.... My flight was delayed for 1 hour and I missed my connection. On the plane, no one alerted I was rebooked and suggested to run to my gate as they "will be waiting for you..." No one at the gate 5 min after departure time, no one to help... VERY BAD, Lufthansa..."
Cons: "My connection was lost due to Lufthaza bad management for flying crew members time. I was rebooked on another flight several hours later with KLM. Arrived to my destination without my luggage as no one from KLM or Lufthansa was able to locate it. My vacation is ruined, in 3 days I'm flying to another country in Europe and don't even know if I will fly with or without my luggage. No one apologized at Lufthansa or suggested any accommodations... Very disappointed with services. Lufthansa used to be good, but I guess not anymore."
Cons: "We booked our group of four with Lufthansa, paying $300 more than equivalent flights on competing airlines, specifically because our 20 month old daughter fits within Lufthansa's age, height, and weight limits for using the bassinet. We have reserved our tickets and the bassinet over two months in advance, paying $35 extra per seat for these reservations, and even got an email that specifically stated "bassinet confirmed". On the flight, when it came time to install the bassinets, the flight attendant came to us, took a look at our daughter, and said that she will not fit in the bassinet, that she is too tall, and too heavy, and suggested that we should have checked the limits for the bassinet before coming on the flight. When we inquired as to the actual limits, she could not provide any numbers, only said that she could see that our daughter is too big for it. When the family next to us got their bassinet, it became very obvious that our daughter would fit in the bassinet, and we pointed out that she was well below the height and weight limits published on the Lufthansa website. Only then did the flight attendant admit that there were other babies on the flight, and they only had four bassinets on the plane, despite having 11 slots where bassinets could be installed. Our reservation months in advance did not matter - we did not get the bassinet. As compensation, we were offered some Lufthansa miles, or 50 euros for in-flight duty free shopping. However, we lost close to 1000 dollars as a group when we chose to fly Lufthansa rather than a less expensive airline. We were very uncomfortable throughout the flight, having to hold my daughter in my arms for over five hours. We are are still very upset that the crew blatantly lied to us."
Pros: "The boarding process and flight was smooth and punctual"
Cons: "We were stuck on the plane for over an hour after we landed in Munich without enough updates on the situation. We waited for the stairs and bus to come then when we got to the terminal our bags did not come and I had to get my baggage shipped. This was very inconvenient and there was not any notification for the baggage delay."
Pros: "This flight was cancelled"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and we were rebooked on the 10:30 flight to Frankfurt"
They canceled our flights but the flight went on anyway.
Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."
Cons: "KLM was not prepared to get wheel chair passenger off plane. Cost me delay of 1 hour. I will never fly KLM again."
Cons: "Boarding was very slow."
Pros: "Crew was very engaging and service was good."
Cons: "My seat was horrible. Right at the door, crammed, and no place to store my carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."
Cons: "I would have to dream something up."
Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"
Pros: "Flight crew very nice"
Cons: "Paid $70 for seat with more leg room and was the exit role to main entrance. No overhead space for carry on: broken food tray holder. People stepping on my feet. And gather in your space waiting for bathrooms. Window seat had no room for feet because of closed door"

Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."
Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"

Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Amsterdam area"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Pros: "I ended up getting home with less delay than originally predicted. I guess that's a good thing Also delta customer service was super polite and trying to help when I called"
Cons: "Delay again... seems to be pretty frequent on KLM flights at least on the ones I flew with in the past 4 years... this time it was 3hours wait due to a technical issue... no alternative flight option and we ended up getting a very old plane as a replacement. In addition people at info terminals are disorganized and not kind at all.."
Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"
Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."
Flight booked from Montreal via Toronto to Huatulco. Toronto to Huatulco flight was cancelled, lost one day of vacation in Toronto waiting for next flight. Flight from Huatulco to Toronto delayed, missed connection to Montreal. Westjet counter closed. No hotel, no connection flight for 4 days to Montreal to finish the journey. I shall go to Small Claims Court to get compensation for all these troubles. Westjet never again.

Pros: "Shakespearean effort by staff"
Cons: "Little snack perhaps?"

Pros: "I slept throughout the flight"
Pros: "As always great service and flight"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "People were cramped in the plane, hardly any room for bags. People from other seats were packing their bags on top of other peoples stuff"
Pros: "Easy to change flight same day to one flight earlier."
Cons: "Forced me to check in my (undersized) duffel bag carry on. Then forgot To load the bag onto the plane. WestJet cited a questionable and unlikely reason, that the bag was not loaded due to baggage to passenger weight ratio for safety reasons, even though flight was far from full with multiple empty rows. Plus there was a grand total of only approximately 12 pieces of baggage at the carousel. Also the plane’s auxiliary power generator was broken, which meant no a/c while on the tarmac before and after takeoff. Cabin was warm though not intolerable, however led to delays at both origin and destination airport due to having to wait for an external power supply truck. No in flight service due to supposed turbulence. Which would have been fine, except there really wasn’t much turbulence. Didn’t affect me, but my neighbor’s entertainment system was broken. However, these multiple issues and the broken power generator makes me wonder about what other maintenance issues have been overlooked or not addressed. Most of all I was offended by the clear lack of honesty about my baggage. If there really was a weight limit safety issue despite the plane being far from maximum capacity, then there are much bigger issues with the plane that makes me never want to fly WestJet again. But don’t insult your passengers by lying to cover up your carelessness. My baggage arrived on the following (my original) flight, but that which was delayed by nearly two hours. I’ve flown on United, Delta, Southwest, JetBlue, WowAir, AA, Alaskan, Virgin, American Airlines, United Airways, China Air, EVA, and Air Canada. So far, WestJet has been by far my worst experience."
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "Flight crew humour"
Pros: "Smiling staff. Very helpful"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "avoid the westjet encore flights. planes are small and noisy. if you sit next to a window it’s impossible to comfortably put both feet on the ground. if you pay for plus seating on an encore flight you’re basically paying to get on and off first. there’s no extra room and would be more fairly priced at $10."
Pros: "The friendly service and prompt boarding!"
Cons: "The snack options. Veggies and hummus would be nice!"
Cons: "airport did t have air conditioning and there is no room in the overhead compartments propeller planes are unreasonable loud"
Pros: "Staff friendly"
Cons: "We were not sitting together...we are both seniors and my husband has only flown 2 before....our seats were booked together and I am assuming due to our flight cancelled on Jan 8 and rescheduled on the 9th that could be why. No room to stretch your legs, for those of us who have circulation problems...."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "All staff were amazing"
Cons: "The Toronto airport has to be on of the most unorganized and disfunctional airport in the world. I have never seen any airport as poorly designed as this one. I would suggest that any traveller try to avoid this airport because I have never had a good experience at this airport."
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome"
Cons: "I checked into my flight 24 hours in advance, got my boarding pass and everything. 12 hours before, I double check the boarding time and my flight has been cancelled. I got no notification of this, luckily I happened to check on my own."
Cons: "Having to divert to Calgary for broken radio. I’m positive there is enough redundancy in radio system to be down 1 radio."
Pros: "Flight was good, crew was courteous and boarded on time. Cabin space was adequate and the entertainment provided through WestJet’s app is very good."
Pros: "Crew overworked but pleasant and doing their best. Self check in works well with assistance"
Cons: "Management decisions meant assigned crew arrived after our flight supposed to depart. Needed 1 more person to service passengers. We waited a long time after serving started to get served. We did not know that food could be preordered online and served soon after takeoff. No TV screens on back of chairs...had to rent device to see movies. Have app but not able to book and get points. Wrote to WJ for help but oo response"
Pros: "Was on time and i was upgraded at no charge. The westjet staff is always friendly."
Pros: "Everything was streamlined and easy to understand. We made it on time and the staff were friendly, especially with our young son who is one Ana half."

Cons: "The flight was late more then 2 hours. I missed connection flight!"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable some of the crew were nice though not all"
Cons: "The food was horrible. Entertainment was limited. The boarding process is terrible. Staff needs to learn to smile more."
Pros: "Quality of food served on Paris to Toronto leg was superior to the Toronto to Paris leg"

Cons: "Seats are always a pain in the butt Wifi has never worked for me -slow and keeps dropping"
Pros: "The crew and pilots were great"
Cons: "Dinner was just okay"
Cons: "we waited on the tarmac for a lengthy period of time in Toronto-we missed our connection as a result in Germany and there was little staff to help us get new reservations-we waited 7 hours and got a voucher for one meal-we missed a whole day in Europe"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "The food. The technical difficulties with entertainment. The red wine that landed on my clothes as the stained bottle was given to me"
Cons: "We arrived in Munich 40 minutes late and so we missed our connecting flight."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Flight took too long - missed my connection. Also a flight attendant wouldn’t let me use my Bluetooth headphones - she wouldn’t even let me use them while turned off as noise dampeners."

Cons: "Flight was late departing"

Cons: "Rouge entertainment system is crappy"
Cons: "The food was,nt S-o good,I requested chicken, that was'nt enough for all pasangers and I got pasta that had only tomato n-o parmegiano or cheese. At breakfest only banana bread that was very sweet, S-o I was desapointed. The chair in front of me was leaning on me because îți was broken The selecțion for movies on TV screen was very dificultate as the cursor didn't! responded to my movements"
Pros: "That we ended the trip safely."

Pros: "I actually flew through meontreal but it was a great flight and the salad was very good"
Pros: "Excellent staff and crew"
Pros: "Dinner was good, breakfast was meh."
Cons: "Air temp was hot. Food came with tons of plastic wrapping."
Cons: "Economy seats are very small and tight. Food is average at best. Crew is semi-friendly/"
Pros: "Again, nothing good stood out to me, although the entertainment was very good, with recent movies and music."
Cons: "I was late for this flight due to the delay from Baltimore to Toronto. I got a new flight with no problem, BUT the change messed up my travel plans because the arrival time to Athens was now later than before. We were additionally DELAYED 3 hours in Toronto."
Cons: "I was on AC A333 from YYZ to MUC. The audio system for my seat didn't work and made for a long flight. Lucky I had downloaded some movies from Nextflix to my mobile device. The only thing I was able to use is the flight tracker on my seat screen."
Pros: "Air Canada accommodated me on an earlier flight saving me 3 hrs."
Cons: "No entertainment. Couples cannot sit together."
Pros: "The trip from Kelowna to Vancouver was amazing. Quick very pleasant."

Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Pros: "The check in was fast and easy, even was able to get a better seat. The cabin and seat were comfortable, the crew very nice. There wasn't any food which is never offered on thse shortish flights. Flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight. Just the passport control took a long time in Toronto, which is not the airlines problem."
Pros: "It was great."
Cons: "Like to be able to pick my seat ahead of time without a charge."
Pros: "Flight and attendants great! A second offering of coffee would have been appreciated!"
Cons: "Lines were confusing to me. Kiosk machines for boarding passes clogged lines. Only 3 staff working security lines after a long weekend! 3 sets of married couples that I knew of couldn't be seated together! Airport personnel not very helpful and rather cranky!"
Cons: "The departure time for the flight was 6:00am and there was no one in the check in counter until 4:15am. There was a long queue for the check in. Not a pleasant waiting time for the check in"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Flight got delayed"
Pros: "The 787 was amazing."
Cons: "I had to take two different flights connecting through London Heathrow to make this leg of the journey."
Pros: "As opposed to my flight from Tokyo to Toronto, the return leg from Toronto to Baltimore had only one exception, which was that the flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "From boarding (everything was late, from departure to arrival), to how the baggage carousel announcement was wrong, and up to the bus that will take us back to the parking (all the other buses: Amtrak/Marc, Long Term A, Daily Parking, Express Parking came and went for about 4 times or more but none came for Long Term B, you can see all the frustration from the other waiting passengers, including us). A lot of improvements needed from BWI airport if they want to retain their customers."
Pros: "Wonderful selection of in-flight entertainment! Great food, great service."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Flight attendants came by frequently to offer drinks."
Cons: "Entertainment system was slow and buggy, and very difficult to select anything. Took 5 minutes to turn the volume down."
Cons: "need to use my peels ask for water -Never get it nasty smell from bathrooms"
Pros: "The comfort of a Dash 8 was surprising. The seats have a suitable amount of leg room which I'm actually scared to mention so they don't add an extra seat to each row to take it away. Not too much, not too small, just right for a 6 foot man to not have his knees pressed against the seat in front for the whole ride"
Cons: "Where to start? Dash 8's shake, rattle and roll for the whole trip. Felt like we could fall out of the sky at any time. Staff don't care. Split our group after rescheduling due to aircraft issues despite seats available on both connectors. Said to wait until next stop to fix. Next stop said nothing they can do since we checked a bag. Put 2 hours between arrivals just because they can. Blamed it on the computer. Did provide a $10 meal voucher. Good to know Air Canada values my total trip delay time at $2/hr"
Pros: "Fast & efficient"
Cons: "Crew was strangely inflexible about rules that I had not encountered before- being only in ticketed seat until at altitude (the flight was very empty), only specific headphones during takeoff & ascent, no headphones or electronic devices at all during final descent and landing."
Pros: "Service was friendly"
Cons: "Food from Dulles to Munich was one Of the worst dishes served on the overseas flight"
Cons: "Quality of free snacks (pretzel packets) is poor choice for 11hr flight Mid flight snack is a cold sandwich, that tasted terrible Rude crew Delayed start from SFO resulted in delayed arrival at MUC Checked in bags did not transfer correctly in MUC to Lufthansa. Forced to wait extras 3hrs (estimate) in Madrid airport for bags Cannot track bags for last segment neither on United IOS app nor Lufthansa app. Poor integration between UA - LF systems Limited choice of movies"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and plenty of room. Good food!"
Cons: "Flight was significantly delayed as a result missed my train"
Pros: "crew was initially helpful but then did not help with our connection but might have been out of their control-would have been nice to know that there was no chance to make connection with the initial flight delay We ran all the way and still did not make it-too far and connection was too tight with having to go thru customs very grateful to the Luftansa attendant who helped us at the desk of the gate to find and book another connetion"
Cons: "more time between flight connections"
Pros: "Crew was good especially the young man. I paid an additional $78 for an aisle seat and to be away from the bathroom. They moved me two rows from the bathroom. All night the door opened and closed. Constantly people lined up and talking waiting to get in.No chance of sleeping .Man kicking my seat."
Cons: "More leg room. Wider seats, better food."
Pros: "The onboard crew was great and the agent at the Dulles airport who helped with my ticket was great (don’t remember her name)."
Cons: "I couldn’t upgrade my seat since my ticket is ‘restricted’ even though I am willing to pay more for another seat. I am a tall person and was assigned a middle seat for a 7.5 hour flight. Flight was also delayed getting into Munich so I missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Enough storage space 4 luggage!"
Cons: "Almost everything: Late departure (2 hrs!) due to luggage issue (???) - narrow middle seats, could not move much and no sleep at all!!! Horrible experience!!!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was delicious and flight was nice and smooth!"
Cons: "Very cold but that’s better than very hot. Wore my coat and your blanket. Seat bottom was very uncomfortable but I sat on the pillow you provided and that solved that."
Pros: "the only good thing I can say about the flight was that the crew was for the most part friendly"
Cons: "Everything. From the chaotic boarding scheme to the uncomfortable seats that really didn't recline. Less than 2 hours into the fight, they were out of red wine. They were also out of chicken for dinner so the only choice was vegetarian pasta. As for movies, what happened to Gogo Entertainment? I had to use their headphones to watch the movies on their screen instead of my iPad. So, I couldn't use my bluetooth headphones. There was no close caption so it was hard to watch the movies amidst the noise of the engines."
Pros: "The arrival gate was extemely close to the departing gate. I did not have to walk the usually long and exhausting distance from one terminal to another. Thank goodness."
Cons: "Broarding was well organized by groups andmoved quickly. The choice of dinner was not an option. By the time the stewardess reached me, only pasta was left. But having italian gelato for dessert was an acceptable compensation. Breakfast ,however, was ho..hummm without any redeeming compensation. choice of beverages was refreshing."
Pros: "The staff were as kind & caring as I've seen"
Cons: "Seats were rock hard, very uncomfortable. My flight from Munich to Kyiv on an older airbus 321 was better and my earlier flight from ElPaso on SWAir 737 were a hell of a lot better leg room seats were nice, go figure!"
Cons: "Plane left one hour late."
Pros: "FOOD WAS DECENT"
Cons: "MISSING CONNECTION. BEING LATE GETTING TO OUR HOTEL IN PROVENCE."
Pros: "My original reservation was on Lufthansa and was changed to United Airline without our consent Very terrible and rude check in agent We were never told that we have to check our luggage out in Munich and check it back in for our final destination Since the layover is more than 12 hours Uncomfortable plane and very old it’s outdated tech and entertainment Very poor food quality and quantities"
Cons: "Nothing absolutely Nothing"
Pros: "Boarding went very well. Seats were good."
Cons: "We missed our next flight due to being called back to the gate for some cargo issues. Because we missed that flight we had to wait 3 hours for the next one which caused us to miss our bus reservation and ended up costing us about five extra hours in time. Staff was not very attentive."
Cons: "Food was 100% carbohydrate. Not a trace of greens or protein. Our party was split up even though reservations were made long in advance. Codeshare on Air Canada"
Cons: "getting to DC 7 min late, we miss the flight to Muchen....literally watching the plane leaving. -waiting in line for United (since 2 flights were operated with them) they tell us we have to go to Lufthansa to solve the issue. -going to another terminal, to Lufthansa client service desk, they tell us is United who has to check us into a new flight. -on the phone with United, they give us as solution a 22h waiting period, with no hotel payment. -as one of us was still on the phone, the other is trying to find a solution with Lufthansa. Eventually they say that United was to transfer our tickets to them, so they can put us into the next flight to Munchen. -5 h later they finally manage to book us together, into a Munchen flight. -getting fine from DC to Munchen and Munchen to Bucharest, 7 h delayed but we get to Romania."
Pros: "Large plane. Cheerful Staff. Food was good as airline food goes. Power and video at every seat. And there was enough room for carry on bags."
Cons: "Seat didn’t really recline. Couldn’t sleep"
Cons: "Our flight to Munich arrived late. And our connecting flight to Milan was originally scheduled to leave just 50 minutes after our arrival in Munich. We did not make our flight to Milan and have lost a half day of time at our destination, as well as more than $100 in non-refundable Italian train tickets. Even if our plane had arrived to Munich on time it would have been nearly impossible to make our connecting website. Flight pairings with this short of a layover should not be suggested at this airport when travelers are required to go through passport control."
Pros: "Seating was larger than normal for economy. Crew was pleasant and made lots of offers for food and drink. Flight was on time and the luggage arrived unharmed"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Flight was on time for departing and arriving into Munich."
Cons: "Boarding is way too slow, and always seems to be so confusing. There were a couple of crying babies on the flight that make sleeping a lot harder. A German flight should have at least one German bier for their customers. Gate agents moved my wife and I into a row with another customer and gave our seats to single person-which makes no sense to me, so he had two open seats around him, and we were in a full row. B.S."
Pros: "Attentive cabin crew and decent food/wine selection, but...."
Cons: "This format of business class seating leaves a lot to be desired. There is literally no place to store anything except maybe your cellphone on the shelf under the TV screen. No room for a backpack on the floor - has to be in the overhead. Not convenient on an 8-hour overnight. Seats are tight - could not lay on my back - had to sleep on my side. No separation between seats - it was a 2, 4, 2 layout and the guy next to me coughed all night. At least I wasn't in one of the middle seats. Expensive flight for that type of setup IMHO. And given it was a 777, the plane was big enough."
Pros: "Fewer seats more space for passengers and ample leg space The food was delicious"
Pros: "The service and welcoming"
Pros: "Winter storm commencement in Chicago during take off didn't daunt the pros piloting this Lufthansa flight. Smiling, courteous service, good food and wine along with space to rest has made Lufthansa my new go-to for flying to Europe."
Cons: "Economy seats mean tiny unresponsive video screens. Playing a game of Mah-jong on the in-flight screen is nearly impossible. Bring your own tablet"
Pros: "Boarding process, including ground crew was good with customer service. Food was good and in-par with other airlines."
Cons: "Flight crew, including a few air-hostesses were very rude. Entertainment system and the played films were very dull. Plane was uncomfortable."
Pros: "United was flexible when I had to change my reservation at the last minute. Good service on board."
Pros: "Crew was great, friendly and helpful.Entertainment was decent, good movie selection"
Cons: "Meals - well let’s just say that not everyone enjoys bbq chicken and grits - mixed."
Cons: "Food terrible. Melted ice cream. No leg room!"
Pros: "Good experience, no issues."
Cons: "Good overall."
Pros: "Service, food quality, profwssionalizem"
Cons: "Equipment. Very old. Seating inconvenient cand cramp."
Cons: "The itinerary printed out that I was traveling Lufthansa so my nephew left me off at Terminal B; but after trying to print out my boarding pass unsuccessfully, the supervisor said that I was booked on United which is at Term C. I had to rush on the air train to the crowded Airtrain & running thru Security & Customs."
Cons: "Our plane was defective so had to be replaced. This is fine, I certainly am willing to wait for a new plane if it means not blowing up over the ocean. The problem was how little the attendants at the gate communicated the situation to us. What should have been a brief layover became a 12 hour nightmare. The gate attendants did finally issue meal vouchers but they waited until 10 minutes before all the restaurants closed and only issued $10 a person. This is enough to buy a hot dog at an airport... We were told there wouldn't be any rescheduling of missed connections until we were "airborne". This resulted in mass panic and confusion upon reaching our destination. We were told to go to the service desk, half an airport away, but once the entire passenger contents of the plane arrived at that far flung service desk, we were mostly turned away to seek help at individual gates. This lack of communication meant I missed the next next available connecting flight and now have a further six hour layover. I understand accidents happen and planes can break down but the nearly complete lack of care and customer attention is, frankly, disappointing. I've now had nearly an entire day added to my travel time. If I'd been willing to loose that time I would have paid $600 less for my ticket. United finally offered a token of their appreciation : a $100 e-voucher. I have spent more than that on food and coffee in airports for the past two days while trying to survive until my next connections."
Pros: "Crew and food."
Cons: "The old bait and switch. United is not and will never be Lufthansa. Cattle call seating."
Cons: "3 hour delay from washington to munich..missed my connecting flight and was booked on my flight to athens 12 hours later!!!!!"
Pros: "It was excellent all way) thank you."
Pros: "Clean, on time, professional crew."
Cons: "I wish there were more bathrooms available for the economy class."
Cons: "Temp inside plane was freezing cold. Pilot was asked 3 times to adjust. People were bundled up, hugging themselves and had blankets over their heads to try to stay warm. After third request to pilot, the temperature was set to so hot people were sweating and complaining. Typical United Airlines crew who think they are driving a cattle car"
Pros: "Staff did its best even understaffed"
Cons: "The delay, bad food (all spicy)"
Pros: "Others than below all good..."
Cons: "At LEAST 35% of the seats were empty..... it was a 11 hours flight and 5 hours after departure I tried to take a nape somewhere where there was no one sitting. After one hour, the flight attendance woke me up saying there is premium economy and I cannot stay there... had to return to economy. I'm a hit disappointed since It was a while after the take of and I was not taking anyone sit..."
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "First, our flight UA 194 was redirected back to SFO after 2 hrs of flight due to problem with weather sensor device or something of flight. Then we were cheated and provided with Economy class seat from FRA to MAA for the next day. We paid for full Business from SFO to India but our connecting flight was changed to Economy seat. Very very very poor and fraud technique from United crew. We are very sad about this and we will never ever take United or Lufthansa again. Never ever + we will request all our relatives to abandon these kind of cheaters."
Cons: "Poor WiFi. Poor video. Very small seating"
Pros: "We liked the video on demand on overnight flight."
Cons: "The dinner choices on the overnight flight to Munich left a lot to be desired."
Cons: "POOR treated like animal United STINKS don't know yet can be worst"
Pros: "The crew we're very friendly and professional. They took the time to fix the plane instead of flying a plane that needed maintenance"
Cons: "My flight out of Houston was five hours late because of maintenance. This caused me to miss my connection. The rebooked connection was 5 hours after we landed and still my luggage did not make it. The rescheduled flight was supposed to arrive just after midnight, but because of lost luggage, I didn't get out of the airport until 2 am and missed my ride."
Pros: "Nothing in particular. The flight was "saved" by having a friendly fellow passenger sitting next to me. She was pleasant to talk to, but that had nothing to do with the services provided by United."
Cons: "Overall, I find United flights to Europe to be fairly unpleasant. Sometimes the staff can be nice. On this flight female staff with whom I interacted were nice, but the steward who was serving people near me seemed abrupt and largely uninterested in us. In fact he lectured an elderly woman about stowing her luggage for several minutes without realizing she did not understand him. The reason was she was Polish and did not speak any English. I had called out to him several times to tell him this, but he did not hear me. The seats on the flight were very cramped (I sat in 37G). By comparison, I found the seats in the Lufthansa flight I took from Munich to Tel Aviv to be much more spacious. In comparison to Lufthansa, I think United is a second class (or worse) airline."
Cons: "Mechanical problems caused a delay in departure. United Airlines put us on another TWO flights to get us to our destination. Arrived almost eight hours after originally scheduled. Traveled across the ocean to witness and perform my niece's wedding ceremony. I am the priest who is marrying them and conducting the ceremony and the whole wedding was missed and ruined. All this travel for nothing. Very upset and dissatisfied that United airlines did not put us on a different airlines in order to ensure my timely arrival. No attempt was made to rectify the situation. This was not the itinerary I paid for! In my original schedule, I would have had plenty of time to arrive in Dublin, pick up my rental car, proceed to the hotel, get dressed, drive to the wedding site, and perform the ceremony. Because of my absence, the ceremony could not take place and everything is ruined. United Airlines could have at least offered some kind of monetary compensation or travel voucher to apologize for their mistakes. Will not travel with them again. Very very dissatisfied. Will make sure everyone knows how their issues affected my travel and tell others not to travel on United. What a terrible way to start our journey. This confirms the horrible reputation that United has earned in recent weeks in the media."
Cons: "I bought tickets for a Lufthansa flight with a Lufthansa flight number and confirmation notice, only to wait in line to find that it was a United flight and United didn't list the baby's ticket number that was in the Lufthansa confirmation! lost an hour resolving ticket issues. When I pay for Lufthansa tickets, I expect to have a Lufthansa flight with their great service."
