You can use any bathroom on the plane as well which is huge on those rare times you need to use it. They are funny and chatty and seem to enjoy working together which all translates to a less rushed and relaxed experience for us the passenger.

Cons: "We gate-checked our baggage on the first leg of the flight and didn't quite understand why we had to take it off and back on again for this flight when it was on the same plane. There wasn't much legroom; and when the rather thoughtless guy in front of me reclined his seat fully, I could barely move. Luckily, it was a short flight."

Pros: "Best WestJet flight ever!"
Cons: "No issues."

Pros: "Reaching my destination"

Cons: "My boarding was no so good. However all went well."

Pros: "safe flight comfortable seats but not much room"

A flight to endure, not enjoy"

Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."
