I have one comment for this trip, sardine, pandemic and everything, and plane was maxed. It was horrible. Staff was great but, this was horrible.
The flight yesterday on 7/14/2011 was canceled. We haven’t received any notifications of the cancellation. My elderly mom had to sit in the excruciatingly hot Domodedovo airport, without any working conditioners with the temperature inside of the airport nearing 30 C, for more than 24 hours. She was afraid to get up to go to the bathroom, because she was afraid she will loose her sit at the airport. After my mom was informed that her flight was canceled, she asked, what she supposed to do now and where she should go, where would she sleep. She was told by Lufthansa representatives that it is non of their business and she can do whatever she wants. No food vouchers, nor hotel accommodations were offered to my elderly mom. My mom had to pay extra money and get another COVID test because the one she had was expiring on 7/14/2021. Nobody even cares that she has been vaccinated here in USA and has her vaccinations voutcher with her. It is horrendous, what is happening right now!!!!!! Not only my mom became a victim of shooting at her Kingsooper’s store in USA, she couldn’t even return back home to USA in a comfortable, human way after the trip that where supposed to take my mom’s mind off of the shooting at her store. Instead it is causing now enormous anxiety and fear. I am praying that tomorrow she will return back home to USA and non of her flights will be canceled again!
Pros: "Crew was amazing. I will never fly to Europe with anyone else. No joke. Best flying expierence ever."
Cons: "Honestly nothing. From start to finish great time."
Cons: "Flight left without us even though they knew our flight had landed and we were on our way. Then they rerouted us with a longer flight and our luggage didn’t make it."
Cons: "Self-check-in at Munich was unnecessarily complex. Same for procedure to check in luggage. Also, the passport had to be inspected twice despite being already in the secure zone."
Pros: "Nice support people"
Cons: "Temperature too warm No room Couldn’t get an upgrade"
Cons: "For some reason there were 4 really young children seated all in the same area. Kids will be kids, but perhaps spreading them out wouldn’t make one particular area so loud and disturbing. Boarding the plane I a more orderly way would also help."
Cons: "- The extra baggage fees were 5 times higher than the announced on the website which caused a lot of troubles. - The booked special meals (halal) were too spicy and not proper for children at all ( we just wanted normal meals without non-halal ingredients. - No basic medications on the first flight."

Cons: "Boarding was slow and the plane waited almost an hour after boarding was completed."
Pros: "The fact that I could have upgraded to premium economy. The space available in economy."
Cons: "The length of the flight but it is what it is. I couldn't upgrade to premium economy before arriving at the airport because of this being a code share flight with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Food is provided"
Cons: "Delayed 6 hours on the plane"
Pros: "Outstanding cabin crew."
Cons: "Mediocre food with totally inadequate available snacks between meal services. Inadequate meal before landing."
Pros: "Excellent service from staff on the flight"
Cons: "Long line-up in Frankfurt at Lufthansa Passport control . Could probably open up the third counter and not just one Business and one Economy? First meal ( Turkey) had something in it that blowded me up all the way to Vancouver! Not sure if it was the vegetables or?? Not nice if you can't walk around and also not great for your neighbor to the right and left. I usually don't experience this with my food that I cook or choose."
Pros: "I travel in so many airline but lufthasen is very good airline i want to travel again"
Pros: "Individual screens for all seats with a varied selection of entertainment options. Plenty of room under the seat for my carry-on. (It helped that no one was in the seat next to me.) Beverages were offered frequently. Smooth flight, smooth landing."
Pros: "Thank goodness the movies were good."
Cons: "Had to wait in 5 lines before someone could check our bags. no organization at boarding time. Just a free for all."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Plane was delayed almost two hours due to fog but I can't blame Lufthansa for that"
Pros: "Air Canada could learn a few things from you - ie, the incredible impact of providing free food and excellence customer service at the checkout and gates."
Pros: "Not a good experience overall."
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive in Naples with us. We heard nothing from Lufthansa despite making numerous attempts to email and call the airline. Our hotel tried to call as well to see if someone could at least tell us if and when our luggage might arrive.We had to go out and buy clothes and personal items. It was a terrible way to start a holiday."
Pros: "I liked professionalisam of the flight crew from the start till the end of the flight. They were always nice and ready to serve on 10 hours flight."
Cons: "way too difficult to try to get exit row seats- I went on line precisely 23 hours before the fight and could not figure out the exit rows- legend said they would be marked by a red line but were not. Very frustrating."
Cons: "Canceled and delayed flights are unavoidable but deceitful customer agents is unacceptable. We will never fly Lufthansa again."
Cons: "Flight got canceled and never got new flight! Also never got money back!"
Pros: "This leg of my trip went well and was fairly comfortable. The entertainment was good, and the food was fine."
Cons: "The attendents at the gate in Newark were very unhelpful and unfriendly when I asked them about whether I needed to let someone know that I need a vegetarian meal, since I was not prompted by that question in my booking. They told me I was out of luck and it was too late. Luckly, there was a vegetarian option on the plane, despite their response, but because of this, I bought food at the airport before the flight."
Pros: "Seats were decent 36A, entertainment was very good, also paid full r WiFi access which made a 10 hour flight more bearable. Food was ok, nothing special."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. I had an exit row so plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was a short flight so it didn't really néed food and didn't have entertainment. They hand out pretzel mix, not something I can have (celiac). Doesn't matter on a short 1 hour flight."
Cons: "huge plane, no space. painful."
Cons: "Too many controls during boarding"
Pros: "Taking off was good"
Cons: "Landing was a little bit stressful. But still ok."
Cons: "The head rests were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "This Air Canada flight was operated by Lufthansa and was cancelled due to the strike. So, this means that I am still in Germany which is not the worst place in the world to be stuck, especially because my parents live here. So a few day longer are not a problem for me, but if it takes a week, it is not good because I am supposed to be at work and I am using up vacation I had planned to spent with my family."
Cons: "No boarding lines. Boarded late. I was not given enough time from my arriving flight. I had to spring the length of the airport and up and down stairs as the elevators had long lines. Maybe it was good it boarded late or I wouldn't have made it."
Cons: "Ticket written on Air Canada but Lufthansa was carrier. Not possible to check-in on line leaving very few choices for seating. Tried to check-in on Sunday for Monday flight -- system errors resulted and phone number provided by system only works M-Sat. My initial leg was on Iberia and they could not check me in for entire flight. Major scramble in Frankfort to resolve issues. Never again!"
Pros: "The crew was especially cheerful and helpful. The food was surprisingly good for airline food. I have always had a good experience on Lufthansa and this trip was no exception."
Cons: "Some of the movie choices were a little dated."
Pros: "The problem was a family with 4 children who failed to parent their children which made this 7 hour flight a nightmare. Their children yelled, screamed and cried the entire flight and their parents did nothing. Their children laid in the center aisles, jumped up and down in the seats like a trampoline. They played with the trays like a toy repeatedly opening and closing them for fun. They tossed pillows at each other and the father handed them back to them to do it again and again. The parents didn't even seat their children in - the flight attendant had to do it. In our section there was no sleeping only total frustration. I love kids but sitting behind totally irresponsible parents made this return flight a nightmare while awake"
Cons: "Flight crew inability to handle unruly passengers"
Pros: "I liked the food and entertainment"
Cons: "I have flown with Lufthansa before and this is the first time I have had a cabin crew be rude. She came over to ask me if I wanted to switch my seat with someone and I said I enjoy my window seat and the middle seat she wanted me to switch to makes me feel castrophobic. She then proceeded to role her eyes and just walk away. It was very rude and disturbing of her to do that to a passenger. And on top of the rude service, my chair was not reclining causing the flight to be uncomfortable. I feel as though I have to think twice before traveling with Lufthansa again."
Travelling from Nigeria was a nightmare. Those thugs at the airport gave my husband and i hell because we had our boarding passes on our phone. We had to keep bribing and begging them to let us through. It is the worse travel experience I’ve ever ever had in my entire life. And I travel a lot
Cons: "The touch screen did not work properly"
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."

Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"

Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."

My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"

Cons: "The earphones could have worked!"
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"
Cons: "The flight advertised meals..a small pastry was served an hour into the flight. I asked when the meal would be and was told a few hours...which turned out to be breakfast..i wated all night for food that only came an hour before landing. Now hungrey and tierd.I.will not be flying klm ever again !!"
Pros: "Flying with KLM is a pleasure"

Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."

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: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."

Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
This is a very short flight, so there actually wasn't any food or entertainment onboard. Although the pilot had warned of turbulence, the flight actually was quite smooth, especially compared to the VERY turbulent FAT-CHI leg we had just endured.
Pros: "Crew was professional and accommodating, everything went smooth and quickly"
Cons: "Full flight, but exceeded expectations"
Cons: "The crew could have been more polite."

Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"

Cons: "I upgraded my seats, but we still didn’t get any extras for the price."
Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."
Pros: "Loved the interactive headrest system. Games, movies and more. Kept me so busy that the trip seemed like minutes instead of hours. Very comfortable seats!!"
Cons: "Tight squeeze down the aisle and heaven forbid you drop something while seated because you pretty much had to put your head on you neighbors lap to get it."
Cons: "Pilot or co pilot never spoke once. Was as if there was no pilot"
Pros: "Plane was a little bigger from Grand Rapids and they moved us around to balance the plane and a lot of us got better seats."
Pros: "All the trip , not my food selection"
Cons: "6L to close to the galley"
Pros: "Crew was nice and accommodating, and movie selection was great. Flight got was smooth, too."
Cons: "The Tiny seats. I’m smaller (5’7 135 lbs) and was sitting next to a regular sized man (6’ 175lbs) and we had no room."
Pros: "Great service and fantastic landing!!"
Pros: "Awfully rude flight attendants Took multiple buses I guess American doesn’t pay good money to the airports"
Cons: "Boarding was haphazard"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and fast"
Cons: "I was so disappointed as soon as I walked into the plane. It was very old plane and very dated. There was no entertainment center. It was a long flight with nothing to do. :( I will never fly with American Airlines to Europe again)"
Cons: "Didn't like the two hour delay, especially when I was notified only a half hour before boarding! This seems to be a normal thing for American Airlines."
Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."
Cons: "Had to Deplane 3 hour delay. No compensation no offerings no nothing."
Pros: "The flight entertainment is really nice."
Cons: "Boarding seemed very chaotic as staff tried to get people to check bags at the last minute. My chair would not decline properly."
Pros: "eh, mediocre but usual service from a US airline. Just enough to get you from point A to B, but you’re exhausted once there."
Cons: "too little leg room, and quite uncomfortable seats, couldn’t relax and was cramping from being unable to move more than an inch."
Pros: "Availability of WiFi"
Cons: "Tightness of seats especially with so many people coughing."
Pros: "We didn’t crash, so that’s a plus."
Cons: "Boarded early despite known mech issue. Delayed almost 2 hours. Hottest aircraft I’ve ever been on. All the passengers were sweating and complaining. Absolutely a terrible experience."
Pros: "I liked getting to my destination on time."
Cons: "The one carry-on policy was silly and included personal items. I was told to repack my purse into my backpack which was already full. The boarding staff stood over me and told me to throw stuff away in my backpack and asked why I had packed certain things. I am in the process of moving back to the US from Korea after two years so everything I had was everything I owned in the world - which included some sentimental things like a stuffed animal from my mother who passed away when I was three years old. The most infuriating part of this however was realizing that there was one other bag in my overhead bin. In fact most of the overhead bins had one to two bags and plenty of room. My repacking and humiliation was unnecessary and it was only for the morbid satisfaction of the lady at boarding demanding it. At one point I heard her talking with her coworkers about “why couldn’t they freaking listen. We announced it three times.” Well I had approached the counter prior to arrival and they told me to get back in line when I tried to ask about my purse and backpack. In additional to the frustration of all of that, I received my checked in luggage with a wheel missing. I had just bought it and now I have to ship a wheel from the vendor in South Korea or buy new luggage. Thank you guys so much for letting me know which airline to never fly with again."
Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"
Pros: "Trip non stop"
Cons: "AA has moved seats closer. Had difficulty putting a carry on bag under the seat. Seatbelts short."
Pros: "The crew in the plane was so happy and funny ! Nice group ! The food was fine, always can be better that’s the true hahahah"
Cons: "The crew from AA in LAX it’s old and they don’t know nothing, our check in take 45 min, because we want to pay a extra bag. Thanks his we went with a lot time extra. American Airlines you need to make a big effort for be better."
Pros: "Comfortable flight on-time Good service Great attitude from the crew and the airport personnel"
Cons: "no TV or movie screen"
Cons: "Although I should now be at my final destination, I still have 11 hrs of travel to go. My flights were changed three times. The first cancelation caused me to buy new tickets at a higher price I had originally purchased them at. We were redirected from Kayak to Vayamo and they have no sense of customer service. Horrible"
Pros: "A little turbulance, but nothing too outlandish."
Cons: "I felt like the Sr. Flight Attendance and the Pilot weren't on the same page. -Pilot: "Everyone remain seated" -Sr. Flight Attendant: "We are now going to start serving refreshments" Not sure what was going on there, but at least we arrived safely."
Pros: "On time. Crew was nice, too"
Cons: "Agent at gate said overhead compartments were all full and no more room for any bag. So I had to check in my carry on luggage . To my surprise, there had many open space when I walked in the plane. The worst thing was my brand new suitcase was torn. I told the luggage agent the incident and she said they had no liability what so ever."
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"
Pros: "Lots of movie options."
Cons: "I didn't like anything else about the flight. My seat was broken and the seats are incredibly cramped! Absolutely no leg room whatsoever. I am 6 feet tall which is an average male height so I can't imagine how anyone taller fits in those seats."
Pros: "The AC was set at the right temperature, not too cold, not too hot, just perfect! We got to the destination sooner than expected!"
Cons: "Pay to seat next to my husband, our seats were separate before check-in. Not happy about this."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, so our young family had to spend the night in the airport because they couldn't give us a decent option to get back home. Second time we have had problems with AA"
Pros: "The entertainment was updated and refreshing."
Cons: "Snacks was only pretzel"
Pros: "New plane, big TV screens at each chair, got a nice emergency row seat."
Cons: "Ground delayed for two hours, somewhat uncomfortable seat, one of our "emergency row" seats we paid for wasn't actually an emergency row."
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive with us"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was pretty rude and quite short with passengers."
