Plane was too croweded. Small airplane. No screens or anything. Felt like you fly in 1970
the economy seats are really cramped.
Pros: "It was my birthday and the flight attendant gave me a rose, gummibears and champagne and congratulate me and I was very happy to receive that gesture"
Cons: "Luggage was not received. Now being told it will take up to 5 days! Unacceptable performance"
Cons: "crew and knowledge on parent control for video, kids safety jacket not distributed and no knowledge or help on connecting flights and no knowledge on car seat use in flight (i was told it was NOT safe to have the child in the car seat for take off and landing)"
Pros: "Seat is small"
Cons: "On time boarding"
Pros: "Horrible seating, boarding was a mess, not sure what flight to get on!!"
Cons: "Don't fly United"
Pros: "Flight itself was good. Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was late. Airport experience in Frankfurt horrible. It looked like all was intended to increase the delay. They made me miss my train connection"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it with me."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite"
Pros: "Was nice and pleasurable"
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "Airport is too hot"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight with plenty of food, drink, entertainment and good service. Flight left on time."
Cons: "The flight departure time was too close to the arrival time so we ended up running thru the Frankfort airport."
Cons: "We booked our plane reservations through Kayak . My sister booked my reservation along with hers at the same time. Kayak put us on different planes at different times on our return flight back to the USA. I had assumed we were flying together ( sisters with the same last names), so I showed up at the airport to find out that I had missed my first flight. I already had a boarding pass for the next flight, but Kayak had canceled me and booked someone else in my seat. No more seats in economy and I had to pay $1750. Euros for another ticket. Why would 2 passengers flying together and booking together be put on different planes and different times. We will NEVER use Kayak again!7"
Pros: "Overall experience was great. Crew was nice, good food, boarding went smooth, flight was on time."
Cons: "This flight went well, crew was nice, flight was on time ."
Pros: "Pleasant flight all around."
Cons: "Standing outside of the plane in the freezing hail, when my clothing was completely unequipped for it"
Pros: "The premium economy clas was wonderful. All of the amenities, comfort, room made a long trip far more enjoyable. The crew was right there to help me get to the next gate."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is dreadful. I'm elderly and being forced to climb up and down stairs to the Tarmac with luggage and then crammed into a bus to the terminal was terrible. I would avoid Frankfurt at all costs. Lufthansa needs to take some initiative with this."
Pros: "Staff were amazingly helpful n friendly. Food was yummy."
Cons: "1 person working the service desk. I had a question about our connecting flight from Frankfurt and I was told to call the 1-800 number. When I went to check my bag the woman was very rude and asked me "why do I think I can check two bags?" and questioned my Star Alliance premium silver status, demanding I show her my card (I have no card). My friend was flying with me and she was told that her carry on, mind you had flown to and within europe, was too big for the overhead storage and she had to pay 90 euros to check it and the woman held her boarding pass and wouldn't give it to her. we waited in line at the service desk for over 40 minutes so that she could pay. We arrived to the airport 2.5 hours early to eat and shop for souvenirs. We barely made it in time to get to our gate because of the inefficiencies of Lufthansa. 1 person working a service desk for a large airport is unacceptable, especially when they are 8-10 waiting to scan your baggage and not helping out at all. I had a wonderful flight to Europe on Lufthansa and was absolutely appalled at the attitudes of the airport staff and their lack of customer service."
Pros: "Great service both before boarding the plane and while in flight. The check in line was out of control, but lufthansa staff members ensured that I could still make my flight."
Pros: "priority boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "aisle bulkhead seat: curtai separating business class from economy was hanging over my legs."
Cons: "We were detained at the airport after boarding and then deboarding without information. The entire flight was locked in a room and not allowed to leave with very little explanation as to why. After 5 hours they let us board another plane. There was water and candy supplied as food. It was a joke for anyone with kids or the elderly. Nevermind anyone with health concerns. BAD way to manage a crisis in my opinion. We were treated like cattle. And these were NOT cheap tickets."
Pros: "Air dolomiti - great service, prosecco in a real glass and with small sandwich provided."
Pros: "Afterall I did get rice iso pasta."
Cons: "Cold. My chair was bumped because us was just a little bit broader in the gangway than the other chairs. (54c) There is no possebility fot ordering foid for me: diet is without grains at all and without sugar at all."
Pros: "We were well taken care off for a short flught"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Crew was more understanding. Placed us to row 18...emergency exit."
Cons: "Checked online from row 21 to 6. Got a new ticket whilst boarding to 25: last row. Explanation...otherwise the plane was not able to go in the air...absolute bullshit. With my weight and of my fellow members better to let us in the front.. Row 6 was given to a miles & more client..."
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic."
Pros: "Food and beverage service was excellent on these Star Allisnce international flights booked by United but operated by Lufthansa."
Cons: "Leg room in economy is inadequate for international flights. Seats had no cushion left in seat bottoms. It was like sitting on cement."
Pros: "Plane not full so we hat an extra Seat"
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and flight, fun snack (cakes on a plane!), relatively quick and easy."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to complain about for European commuter flights."
Pros: "That was the best airline meal I've ever eaten. It was a lightly curried chicken. Outstanding. Extremely fast boarding. Boarded entire airplane in less than 15 minutes. Nice selection of movies and audio. All of which you could stop, pause, fast forward, and rewind."
Cons: "No reading lights. No attendant call button I could find. Not much air volume. That pesky lack of leg room. Short seat belts."
Pros: "Crew was beyond standard. Very nice and friendly and always accommodating."
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian meals."
Cons: "Service, always delay"
Pros: "The food was nice and the stewardess were professional."
Cons: "My ticket didn't specifically say I'm not allowed to have check-in luggage, so I needed to pay extra for that. I also got too little transfer time and barely made it because my flight arrived late. Then, my luggage got lost during the transfer, so I had to wait for 5 hours, which made my plans a mess. Overall not satisfied with my flight"
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Decent legroom. Crew pleasant. Food was very good especially for a very short flight."
Cons: "I did not know I had purchased economy light ticket. With this you can only carry on 18 pounds and must check and PAY to check any other bag. I looked at my reservation from Vaysms and did not see notice of this. Surprised that one hour trip at this price , well over $200, was in this category. Also trying to buy the option for the bag on phone was difficult. Whole page with options would not show and getting English version was difficult probably because page would not fit on screen."
Pros: "Our flight out of Amsterdam was roughly 30 minutes late. Since we were connecting to an International flight to return to the US there was no possibility we would be able to get to the International terminal through security and board our flight in the time available. So, Lufthansa staff met the connecting passengers as we disembarked, shuttled us via bus to the International terminal and ensured we made our connection. Finally, for airline food it was quite good (Vegan)."
Pros: "The price was good."
Cons: "This was NOT a Lufthansa flight. The plane was a United flight. One of the worst I have experienced in 40 years of flying to Europe and Hawaii."
Pros: "Upgrade to business class. Staff was accommodating"
Cons: "Seats were situated next to the bathroom"
Pros: "Safe and efficient transportation."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't functioning so there weren't any viewing options presented. The crew failed to mention that the United app provides movies on your phone."
Cons: "It was not a Lufthansa flight, as I had bought, but a United flight because of their partnership. The bathroom made me gag, the food and the entertainment left much to be desired but the service was good. Cannot complain about the flight attendants. Entertainment was also very 2008 with tine screens and not able to select what and when to watch. They only had movies and series on loop. Will avoid having to fly United in the future and will make sure I am indeed getting on a Lufthansa plane."
Cons: "The narrow seats: it is not fun to travel with four elbows in your ribs. Try it some time."
Pros: "The crew was great, very friendly and attentive. Sitting in Economy plus is acceptable comfort wise. Captain was very communicative when there was a mechanics issue and delay, much appreciated."
Cons: "United check in desk was unnecessarily long wait, other airports/airlines have a better flow. The screens on the seat backs on 767 are ridiculously small and stuttery. The main meal was not very good, pasta sauce was gross, could've done better with prego."
Pros: "We arrived 15 minutes early, which is always great!"
Cons: "They ran out of the chicken for dinner and only had manicotti left, which was horrible! No apologies for running out of 1 of the 2 options. The audio was horrible. In order to watch the movies, I had to hold the cord in 2 places in the exact right manner, or it would cut out and there would only be silence. Not fun trying to maintain that position for 9 hours."
Pros: "Staff attentive. Came by very frequently."
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "Seat back entertainment? What a joke! It was like watching a movie on a Motorola Razr (or my old Ericsson flip phone). Surly old battle axe sky waitresses. 90s vintage plane interiors. Need I go on?"
Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."
Pros: "Overall booking and airport was ok. Food was also actually quite good."
Cons: "A comfort of the seats... well its economy class in the end. Entertainment was just dreadful - small screen with visible pixels - I was unable to watch any movie."
Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"
Pros: "Excellent service. A meal , drink and a coffee included which we were not expecting."
Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."
Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"
Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."
Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very professional."
Cons: "Aircraft returned to gate due to fault and was delayed for 45 min."
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"
Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."
Pros: "Consistently high standards"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."
Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff were lovely. Online check was very simple and easy to navigate."
Cons: "The amount of extras you have to click no to while checking in online."
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Pros: "Staff both at the airport and in the plane were professional and welcoming. Depsite short distance sandwich and drink were offered."
Cons: "Nothing to be honest . All positive."
Pros: "Professional, welcoming and very friendly crew, well-maintained aircraft, comfortable seat and good food. Keep up the good work, KLM."
Cons: "Not much to comment on here."
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
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: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"
Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and accomodating, plane was clean and boarding amd disembarking was efficiently handled."
Cons: "55 minute delay was not welcome."
Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."
Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"
Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Good food. Decent leg room at my seat. Good crew. Flight was on time. Good magazine on the flight for entertainment."
Cons: "They didn't give any napkins out with the food which was weird."
Cons: "I wasn't sitting next to my partner and we sat on the Tarmac for 45 minutes after the flight was already delayed by 30 minutes."
Pros: "Leg room. Smiles of the cabin crew."
Cons: "Not enough selection of Electronic Dance Music. Lol!"
Pros: "I was only a few minutes late and was not allowed to check in my bag or to board the flight."
Cons: "They could have let me board!!"
Cons: "Screen is slow and outdated. Easy upgrade from one class to another."
Pros: "Great staff!"
Pros: "The answers were defaulted with a star selection and I could not change it. Our air Canada flight for Vancouver to Maui was just OK. It was an Air Canada Jazz flight. Very uncomfortable seats (and we were in business class). The flight was uneventful and the service was great. I would change my answers above to 1 star for comfort; zero stars for entertainment. The movies were old and it was very hard to hear the shows with the ear buds they provided."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Space, food and entertainment"
Cons: "It was late 20min"
Pros: "Flight was confortable and crew was great we even arrived slightly early."
Cons: "One of the onboard meals was literally cup noodles with sides."
Pros: "My 15 minute nap"
Cons: "The male crew member seemed to be having a rough day."
Pros: "Flight wasn't crowded and it was a quiet flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour, but baggage arrived fine."
Pros: "Many airlines have code share flights but it is better to buy ticket directly from the original airline as they keep on ignoring the code share flight bookings"
Cons: "Till last moment we were kept hanging if we will board or not as no seat number was allocated. I believe it was as we were from the code share airline not the real one"
Cons: "9:30 flight finally took odd at 11:30 .... delayed and had to set on the runway. Arrivedabd gad to wait 30 min for gate. Will be in terms mal by 1:30"
Pros: "considering all the delays, both in delay in leaving Amsterdam and holding pattern due to thunderstorms in Toronto all went well in a very long day."
Pros: "Why Canada created a ridiculous process that requires a $7 payment for transmitting in Canada is beyond me. I hope they realize they are impairing the competition of it's own national airline."
Pros: "At least the entertainment systems worked this time."
Cons: "I've never thought that airplane food was bad before, but they ran out of the main options and I was left with macaroni and cheese. It was bad."
Pros: "Great airline for food and service."
Cons: "For couples traveling in business Air Canada's seating is designed to de-couple by placing barriers between seats . They need to try Emerites to check out how a pod should work Entertainment is limited"
Pros: "The plane was really comfy and the service on board was outstanding"
Cons: "There was a very long line to check in, the gate was changed prior to the flight, we couldn't get to the gate because the doors were locked, we had to stand there waiting for 30 minutes, and the flight was delayed by 90 minutes"
Cons: "They lost our luggage not only on the way to our destination but also on the way home both times in Toronto"
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "Connecting flight was cancelled (still in toronto now) and confusion over the boarding pass made me think it was another 24 hours til we flew out."
Pros: "Food great, staff friendly and flight was EARLY!!!"
Pros: "They weigh every little carry on even little backpacks. My Dad who is 83 had very hard time since he had one pound over. Max weigh you can in your carry on is 22 pound. Extremely money hungry Air Line. I would avoid at any cost."
Cons: "my flight was late leaving midland and therefore I missed my flight from houston to toronto NO one at the Houston United airport counters would help me I stood in line at customer service for an hour and a half just so they could tell me to go see some one at the Air Canada to confirm my rebook and that my flight was delayed an hour anyway and I probably could have made it!!"
Cons: "Flight didn't take off on time Mediocore service Medicare food Air Canada wouldn't let me pick my Seat. I hate to phone a friend at the airline to select a seat."
Pros: "Great crew and helpers on the ground too! Loved the entertainment too! :)"
Pros: "Great crew and on schedule."
Cons: "One of the better flights I have taken no complaints."
Cons: "An international flight, yet no food, and had to purchase beverages and ear buds."
Cons: "The lavatory sink was clogged. The audio to movies was inaudible, as though the picture was streaming and the audio was lost. The crew offered little assistance to a clearly frail elderly passenger who had a very difficult time rising from her seat and using the lavatory."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 1/2 hours, plane A/C not working. Waited for another plane. They tried to fix the first plane but they just delayed getting another plane."
Pros: "We were served three meals (two full meals and a snack) and free entertainment in individual seat TVs. Cheapest flight from DC to Seoul."
Cons: "Arriving Toronto customs and immigration was so unorganized and frustrating."
Cons: "flight was booked as Lufthansa, but Lufthansa would not allow seat selection and air Canada would not recognize Lufthansa booking code, so we were stuck in middle seats for 8 hr & 5 hr flights on third section we in in very back of plane even though there were better seats available"
Pros: "Nothing specific"
Cons: "Old plane, broken headphone jack, ignorant cew"
Cons: "Y he WiFi didn't work. Poor service, the aircraft shouldn't have taken off crew preflight email@example.com through a tropical storm the turbulence was so bad there were people crying and the crew in the cabin really didn't seem to care"
Pros: "Spacious flight Cozy environment Comfortable sitting"
Pros: "Comfortable and quiet"
Cons: "Baggage fees and no snacks."
Pros: "Good seats"
Cons: "Luggage was lost from Vancouver to Seattle with absolutely no communications and I had to chase it's whereabouts the next day"
Pros: "The food was really good. I was kind of shocked but each meal or snack I had was delicious and I especially liked that I could pre order special food according to my diet. The staff was friendly and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "the music channels were lame. I was bummed we did not have wifi in the plane and so I couldn't listen to good music the whole flight"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled then accommodations were extremely unorganized."
Pros: "Seat, pillow and blanket were clean. Flight arrived on time, luggage was intact and there were no issues boarding or de-boarding."
Cons: "Booked 4 months in advance - flew solo. Only window seat left was at the very back, near where the crew prepared everything. The entire flight was spent listening to them prepare meals, discuss their trip itinerary, shifts and how Air Canada treats them, as employees, so poorly. The crew were very short with most passengers and it seemed over staffed."
Pros: "Food was really good and they passed drinks a few times as well as walking through with water. Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Air Canada lost my luggage, customer service was very vague and unhelpful, did not get my bag back for almost a week."
Pros: "In flight entertainment is great."
Cons: "No snacks."
Cons: "Ran out of salmon for meal"
Pros: "Quick flight, well-done!"
Pros: "Friendly and professional staff"
Cons: "Entertainment system is crappy and looks like it's from the 1990's. It needs a serious overhaul. I reserved windows seats and showed up to check and had been placed in the middle."
Pros: "boarding was quick, organized."
Cons: "my in-seat personal tv was broken. If there hadn't been other empty seats, I would have had to sit with no IFE the whole flight."
Pros: "From the views read I cannot say I had the same experience. Crew was helpful & kind. Flight was on time and comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and multi-lingual. The food was fine and beverages were frequently offered. I live in Michigan, but flights from Windsor (via Toronto) to Europe are much less expensive, so well worth the drive over the border."
Cons: "This airline only allows for one free checked bag when flying internationally. The checked bag size is stringent (but at least travelers are notified about that several times when booking and paying on line. The movie options are limited, but still enough variety to find something to watch."
Pros: "For the most part all crews were courteous and friendly. Early boarding for a disabled person traveling with our family was problematic on each leg of the trip."
Cons: "Not being informed of the reasons for the delay of almost four hours in the Toronto to Amsterdam leg was a major disappointment. Legroom on both transatlantic legs was a problem as well."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that my flight from the United Kingdom came in late and that resulted to missing my flight to Indianaplis and ruined my entire plan for the day."
Pros: "Never got on this flight. We were never given an email to self check in, and we're unable to board 45 mins before at the gate coming frim anotthe flight. They overbooked this flight & sold our tickets, and then told us we couldn't get on flight. Now we are out $2500 buying new tix!"
Cons: "All the above. A simple check in email would have averted this problem. All the other airlines do this. We were under the presumption that we had to check in at airport when we didn't get check-in notice. Furthermore, they sold our tickets, so we're down $2500 and they doubled their profit. It would be hard for me to say I will use Air Canada or kayak in the future."
