No priority boarding or dedicated checkin for premium economy Plane over heated Terrible food — stale dessert No snacks available Drink glasses minuscule Will avoid Lufthansa flights in future. Literally the worst value ever.
The flight from Houston to Frankfurt was atrocious. Our seats were in Coach; these rows provided no leg room, and if you needed to exit your row, you had to ask the passenger in front of you to straighten their seat, so you had a bit more room to go to the restroom. For our return flight, we decided to upgrade our seats. Lufthansa refused to give us credit for the seats we had already selected and paid for when we initially booked our flight ($60) and charged us $125 each to sit on a row with more leg room. In addition, we missed our Lufthansa connecting flight in Frankfurt because the flight from Houston left late. We walked the Frankfurt airport for hours, looking for someone to assist us. Terrible experience! Needless to say, we will never fly Lufthansa again.
Cons: "I couldn't put my seat back properly because the man behind me was too big. Please put big people in spacious places its more comfortable for all."
Cons: "Best airline! More space between seats. Great service. Great meals and snacks and overall excellent experience! I've travel a lot and no other airline in North America comes close! Thanks!!"
Pros: "The food was better than most other airlines"
Cons: "The boarding process is confusing. Checking the passports separately in the same area boarding lead to a lot of congestion and confusion. The boarding pass reading machines often didn't work. It looked like passengers in higher classes couldn't use the economy machines."
Pros: "The flight was seamless,appreciated the frequent food and drink service"
Cons: "The boarding was priority and then everyone else. Didn’t realize economy boarding had no real order."
Cons: "Seats are super tight and very uncomfortable for tall people."
Pros: "I booked with Lufthansa, but this was a United flight. I prefer United's boarding process with multiple groups to Lufthansa's single group. Lufthansa's leads to a very very long line 20 minutes before boarding starts."
Cons: "United had fewer movie options, fewer meals, and worse food than the Lufthansa flight we took when we traveled to Frankfurt. It was also delayed two hours due to mechanical issues. I will have to pay more attention when I book next time to avoid United flights."
Pros: "Lufthansa is just the best. The flight crew was so pleasant the entire trip and they work very hard to make sure the passengers are comfortable. The food was even good! Lots of perks included--free wine, beer, etc. along with headsets for the movies."
Pros: "Excellent overall. Much communication from the cockpit to explain weather delay etc. two meals transAtlantic. Genuinely friendly crew. Wine with economy meals a pleasant surprise, Electronic check-n and Gaye change alerts very smooth Lufthansa will be my first choice next time I fly."
The hard product, food, and service are far superior to their North American counterparts
Cons: "Not to have 2 distressed cats on board meowing non stop for 10 hours."
Pros: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "No respect of distancing the seats ; all the seats were occupied. No wifi"
Pros: "The seats were much more comfortable then my last flight. The entertainment system was also updated from the 1980’s remote and cord ones on my flight from DC to Paris."
Cons: "There was no food between the two meals on an 8 hour flight. I had a flight attendant rudely tell me that there is nothing to offer until the next meal. No one reached out to me about the horrible flight and comments I made from the last flight."
Pros: "The seat was really comfortable and I was able to sleep the whole flight with no disturbance"
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The time. The flight was late for 1 hour. I miss everything and also I get very late to our Airbnb and I was with my family and child"
Cons: "Tell me i would misst the next flight and that my beg will not go to the final airport."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and seat in KQ is super comfortable in Business."
Pros: "The crew ask some of us to help seating a family group together. No objection. Then they went out of their way to make the trip more enjoyable for us... even offering a drink of Champagne wine (the true one, not some substitute)... Departed almost on time, arrived a few minutes early..."
Pros: "I could not fly. No return ticket on march 23, 2020. Justfly.com did not help me"
Cons: "It is always better to buy tickets through the airline."
Pros: "Good service, friendly staff and easy boarding process, good food and on time departure"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Kind staff. We were served a very healthy snack which was also delicious. Flight was delayed due to fog in Porto but oh well! No big problema."
Cons: "No delays."
Cons: "We were not able to board the plane. We left our morning flight from Madrid on time and arrived as expected. We hurried through the airport and went exactly where we were directed. Despite this, the gates closed on us while we were running to the gate. TAP sold us a service they could not provide."
Pros: "The crew was good and went out of their way to help the passengers. The seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment could definitely be better. Newer screens, and more options."
Pros: "Extremely friendly flight crews, never hesitate to help with a smile on their face!"
Cons: "The layover situation needs to be improved. When you give 50 minutes, there really isn’t enough time to deplane, get through the check point, and make it to the terminal. We were told to run like animals in the airport in order to not miss the flight."
Cons: "I fee cheated because it is the first time that I have. to pay for luggage. In their website it states that the basic fare allows in check-in bag. They said to me that there are different categories of basic fare, which is not disclosed in their website. Additionally any seat change cost"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and attentive, there was a delay to boarding and departure but they were very apologetic about it. Service was attentive on the plane and bags promptly delivered at the baggage carousel."
Cons: "I upgraded at the airport to Executive class, which is really a bit of a scam to be honest. It’s just the first two rows of the plane and the middle seat kept free... the seats were no different to economy. Not worth the 109€ upgrade fee."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and professional. Airplane was comfortable and very spacious. Food was awesome."
Cons: "Really need to look at a more efficient way to board the passengers. Was pretty chaotic and the gate was way too small for so many people. Feel like the passengers with carry on luggage were thrown to the wolves while those with backpacks were treated way better."
Pros: "The crew was nice in the cabin."
Cons: "The Check in people were insanely rude. They made me pay 50 Euro for my carryon. The size was fine but it weighed more than 7 kilo. There was no problem outbound and plenty of people had bigger carryons"
I think as another discount flyer they stepped up the bar. I think they should stay around for awhile
Pros: "Quick boarding. Clean plane."
Cons: "Disgusted that baggage wasn't included in the ticket price. I've taken the route 6 times, and this is the first time baggage wasn't included in my ticket. Seats were very small and cramped, with very little room. Not enough space in the overhead lockers for baggage which made cramped seats even more cramped. The TV didn't work either so was a long flight with little entertainment."
Cons: "Lots of time waiting to disembark. Some free snacks would be nice to."
Pros: "The crew and counter check in were provided excellent customer service. Very impressed."
Cons: "My son and I are both 6’5” and the seat are too close together for leg comfort. Flying used to be about COMFORT for passengers. I paid for our seating thinking we would get extra legroom with emergency seating, I was disappointed."
Cons: "Crew in London that checks our boarding pass and passports to let us on the plane was quite rude to my family. Crew inside the plane was great!"
Pros: "We were upgraded to premium economy for free at check-in. The crew was very kind"
Cons: "We did not enjoy the entertaining system as the headphones were not complementary. The food was quite okay but quantity was sparce and no cheese provided. Also service was slow. Drinks were served 10 minutes after meal ☹️"
Pros: "Crew is nice."
Cons: "Had to wait 15 mins because our gate was in use. Seats are old and hard."
Pros: "I liked having an empty seat next to me?"
Cons: "As a big guy, the person in front of my was reclining, and literally dug into my knees. I'm 6'3" so I'm not like abnormally large, but yeah. If there was someone sitting next to me this flight would have been absolutely horrendous. Also, no radio? No TV, what is this? the 80s? Earlier?"
Pros: "Air Transat provide excellent service with affordable prices. I have arrived late to check-in desk due to unexpected traffic but Air Transat team was very supportive, even helped us to cross the customs in no-time until the gate of the plane without interrupting the flight time. Highly Recommended."
Pros: "Old plane so seat pitch was good"
Cons: "Maintenance issues meant a 2 hour delay where we stayed on the plane"
rerouted on red eye. arrived 9 hours late with no luggage. still missing after 3 days. up to 45 day to deal with it. SHAME
We were an hour late on the flight back, quite inconvenient !
Boarding was chaotic and confusing. We were standing crowded with three other gates all departing within a half hour and then when they called us to get in line, all the zones were supposed to lineup at the same time in a cramped little corner. Entertainment, movie selections were great, had a Pillow and blanket, seats were good, and food was better than usual. It would be nice to have some protein in the vegetarian meal though... Hummus or something?
Flight attendants were wonderful. Quite a bit of turbulence, a woman was kicking my seat on and off for 12 hours, and the teenager in front of me absolutely would not put his seat upright.
I upgraded to a seat with more legroom, plus the seat next to me was empty, so it was a pretty comfortable flight.
The receptionist was very helpful in getting me to the correct checkin. I went to air Canada but it should be Inited. The seating was a little uncomfortable because I have a back issue but next time I will just get a bigger seat. Otherwise flight was awesome, landing excellent.
If you don't have any money make sure you eat first. Big push to sell airport food for a big buck considering. And if you're not buying you can get a half of cup of warm coffee but absolutely no cookie or pretzels. Headphones are $3.95.
Extremely long wait in line to board - over an hour & a half - with little explanation of what or why or any estimate of when. Delayed take-off (2 hrs) due to lack of ground crew. The video system on board wasn’t functional for an extended period of time - tried to reload several times before it worked, and then not all screens were functional. Abrupt and hurried service of beverages and meals. Overall, we have had much better experiences with other airlines.
Pros: "I booked an aisle seat and they did not honour it at checking"
Pros: "Generally flight attendant was nice and efficient. Excellent service and"
Cons: "Food was poor quality. Sometimes water taste like bad tap water. There are very nice crews but some of them are not. Some flight attendant bumped my knee a little when she passed by but didn’t care or noticed."
