The flight staff was nice. The pilot was a bit erratic with the plane.
I paid for reserved seats with Lufthansa months before flying. Apparently no one relayed this to ticketing clerk as we were seated at the very back of the plane (row 46), next to restrooms and storage bins. Needless to say, we were unable to sleep for the entire overseas flight. We are returning October 11th via the same route and sincerely hope to have better accommodations.
Cons: "It was full, Ben if Lufthansa said on their website that they keep physical distance for passangers! Liars!"
Pros: "Amazing crew and service."
Cons: "Seat space extremely low for tall person."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Fairly good meals. Friendly crew."
Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."
Cons: "You, Kayak, sold me economy tickets. When I checked in online I saw it for the first time that our tickets were Economy Light. So even though we are Frequent Flyers, we payed $220 for three checkin luggages. I intend to dispute this case."
Cons: "I din't like the fact that Lufhtansa company uses double standards for the countries where they have their flights. From USA, San Jose, Ca, to Frankfurt, Germany everything was good (flight on 08/31/2018 - 09/01/2018). They have been very profesional, beganing wih the boarding time untill the arrival in Frankfurt. The flight to Romania was a different story. They haven't been very professional at all. The flight had a delay and nobody said a word. It was just a clerck there who didn't tell to the Lufthansa passengers for a while anything about our delay. So, finally, he said after 15-20 minutes that our fligt will be later, 20 minutes, than the scheduled time on our tickets. They seemed do not care too much about the Romanian passengers."
Pros: "Check in was easy, flight was smooth, had good seats with legroom. Liked receiving updates on phone."
Cons: "getting fine from DC to Munchen and Munchen to Bucharest, 7 h delayed but we get to Romania. - when waiting for the luggages, guess what? Both luggages are missing. -made the complainment, now we are waiting to show up in Romania and to be delivered at home. -went to pick up the rental car, because of the plane delay, they gave our car away. -after trying several companies, we found a car, 3 times more expensive, but we have a car....yeeyy"
Cons: "Totally Re routed. Bleh."
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing and the overall experience was great."
Pros: "The food was pretty decent."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and do not recline. The plane was old. No entertainment. For the money look elsewhere."
Pros: "Gate and schedule alert"
Pros: "Cabin was clean"
Cons: "Boarding and airpot staff were horrible: rude, chaotic experience especially in Munich and Frankfurt. Main issue was rude staff... No concept of customer service ."
Pros: "Loved premium economy and great crew."
Cons: "Food was mediocre at best. For both meals food served did not match menu. Chicken at dinner was supposed to be thighs but were breasts. Omelette at breakfast was supposed to be with spinach and grilled tomatoes. No spinach and no tomatoes; only peppers and onions."
Pros: "Excellent service during the two hour trip. No complaints whatsoever!"
Cons: "No headrest screens for entertainment but I had my phone and downloaded movies and shoes prior to leaving the US."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Food use to be better"
Pros: "W we’re a few minutes late and they waited for us. We truly appreciate their cooperation. 5 strat services."
Pros: "Lufthansa arranged for pickup with a van upon disembarking from my late flight from Pisa and took me through a special passport and security checkpoint so that I was able to catch my MUC-SFO flight. Flight departed late, but pilot made up all tge lost time in flight. Crew was professional, very polite and efficient."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew."
Cons: "Walk between connecting flights in Munich was very long (25 minutes) and when we got to the gate for the flight to EWR, there was a very long, and very slow-moving line with only one attendant checking boarding passes for 6 gates. We arrived at the gate and were among the last passengers to board. A last minute additional attendant that was brought on, helped to make the line move a bit faster, but this under-staffed checkpoint added unnecessary stress to our long travel day."
Pros: "Very nice personals, I'm so happy."
Cons: "It seemed llike the boarding was rushed and a bit hectic."
Pros: "While seat did give more leg room, we were still squashed. the guy next to me was a little on the heavy side and he could barely fit in the seat. We had no place to put our arms."
Cons: "we had to go down stairs to gain access to plane; they waited forever to board. supper selections were mediocre at best."
Cons: "Didn't happen yet."
Pros: "N-o entertainment"
Pros: "Good service,always smiling flight attendants,"
Cons: "Small tight chairs."
Cons: "There is no entertainment so I do not know it should be rates."
Pros: "great service and flight"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, smooth flight ( great pilots)"
Cons: "Food was carb heavy. I wish you would offer more protein and vegetable choices."
Pros: "United airlines a319 was quite shakey felt uncomfortable whereas the Lufthansa connection with the a320 was way better only a bit shakey but felt comfortable and enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "United airlines connection was quite bad. Was 15 min late but didn't really mind it"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Gate distances were too far away and passport control in Munich is not organized"
Pros: "I fleweconomy. Flight on time. Boarding was quick. Food is so so bordering to poor. On the plus side the portion was small and is good when want to go on diet."
Pros: "The plane was parked away from the gate. We boarded the service bus to get there 20 minutes before departure time. But it took more than 20 minutes while mid way waiting for clearance to leave for the plane. The service bus did not turn on the AC while we waited even though we complained. We were suffocating. There was no entertainment on the plane."
Pros: "flight was on time and the crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Plane was"
Pros: "The seats are normal, the food was fine, but the service was lovely, smooth and always with a smile. We left arrived in Frankfurt almost on time and I would definitely fly Lufthansa again!"
Cons: "Lufthansa does not honor frequent flyer statuses of any of their alliance partners in regards to seat upgrades. Being 6'4", the ability to upgrade to economy plus/premium is important on long-haul flights. Everything else about Lufthansa is excellent, but I will not book with Lufthansa for long flights anymore because of this. I'll stick with United from now on."
Pros: "Crew was very good. Pilots, definitely, were high level professionals."
Cons: "No negative comments for this leg."
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. No groups. Entertainment - app doesn't work on PC. Had to watch movie on cellular Passengers. - noisy eithout crew interference & sitting on wrong seats without any interference"
Pros: "Lufthan changed aircraft and totally screwed by seat assignment, very bad."
Pros: "The crew was friendlier. the plane was way cleaner than the previous one. The food was more decent."
Cons: "The crew wasn't too willing to help with the carry-on baggage, for example - I kept looking for a while for an available spot to deposit mine."
Pros: "I liked the in flight movies"
Cons: "Can't say there was anything I didn't."
called for boarding groups 1 and 2, but when we got there, they were only taking group 1. would be nice if they were more clear. otherwise, solid flight.
When I arrived in Calgary I discovered my plane was reassigned to a more profitable route and I was left stranded in Calgary. I had to rent a car and drove 8 hours to get home at my own expense. 2 of my last 3 flights with Air Canada were cancelled and the 3rd one was delayed 2 hours. Air Canada is an unreliable airline. Choose another airline if you can!
Air Canada lost both of my pieces of luggage including all my medication which required me to return home early. Spent one whole day in an airport trying to see if they could locate it, only to be told a firearm I had packed and had gained a Non Resident firearms permit at my point of entry had been seized. Canadian Customs and Border confirmed it had not been seized and this was strictly the fault of the airline. Complete nightmare, will never fly on Air Canada again.
Pros: "Flight itself was great but we waited 1.5 hours in Toronto on the tarmac waiting for a gate to clear. Unacceptable"
Pros: "Quick boarding and takeoff"
Cons: "The sound connections for the in flight entertainment was faulty. Bring your own device would be better. Seats were uncomfortable, they need replacing."
Cons: "No AC for the first 30 minutes after boarding so it was wacky hot and stuffy."
Pros: "Very little I'm afraid."
Cons: "A lot ohe seats are faulty the entertainment system barely works, mine didn't and even if it did the headphone jack was broken! The cabin is more than grubby, it is dirty with torn fabric and faded writing on dirty plastic. I skipped the meal on the return flights as the outbound were the worst I have ever had! In all honesty I'm not a fussy traveller and never write reviews but Air Canada was so bad I thought it might be useful info for someone."
Cons: "flight cancelled. had to go down to ticketing. rebooked given a $10 food voucher and told we would get a hotel room when we got to Toronto since we were getting in real late because of the delay"
Pros: "Movie, but not a bit of food that we didn't have to pay for except for a tiny bag of pretzels."
Cons: "Not v99j.j on direct flight from Calgary to Toronto on our way home ad we were on our way out."
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hrs! Crew not particularly great."
Pros: "I am 6ft 1 / 185cm and the leg room was OK for an economy flight. Food was OK for airplane food. Staff were very friendly. Overall very happy."
Cons: "I never got on that flight because the flight from Montreal to Toronto was delayed so I would have missed the connection. The flight from Montreal was late. I showed up a the airport three times before I got on a plane. Air Canada asked me to check in online but the system didn't work. Because of the storm, Air Canada couldn't even place me on hold so I had to go to the airport earlier in the day. When I complained about not being able to check in online, they asked gaslighted me and kept repeating that their system was "a great product" and that there was no way it didn't work. One person finally told me that it was because I had a pet in cabin. I could have saved a lot of frustration if someone had told me that. I also think that for a flight that left late and caused me to change plans and leave on a different day with another delayed flight because of the luggage conveyor belt that didn't work - which paralyzed an entire airport - they could have offered us a complimentary meal on the plane."
Pros: "Able to get onto this earlier flight rather than waiting an additional 4 hours in the Toronto airport."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and cramped. Volume on the intercom system was extremely loud (startlingly so) and crew speak so quickly it was still difficult to catch. He actually sounded more like a Scottish auctioneer. The flight couldn't arrive soon enough."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Cleveland and so was the plane going to London . We made it to the gate 15 minutes before boarding was complete . When we get to the gate they told us our seat is gone , someone else got it and we are booked to tomorrows flight and put in a hotel. Me and other 10 people was kicked off because they over soled the flight . Very frustrating and disappointing !!!!!!! Luckily the lady at costumer service was really helpful and put me and an other girl on a flight to Dublin the same night."
Pros: "The crew was always as good as can be expected BUT THE DELAYS AND LACK OF COMMUNICATION WAS THE ACTUAL LOWEST LEVEL OF AIR FLIGHT WE HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. TIME AFTER TIME DELAY AFTER DELAY RESULTING IN MISSED FLIGHTS BOTH WAYS!!!"
Cons: "PLEASE SEE WHAT WE DID LIKE HOWEVER AGAIN TO REPEAT THE NUMBER OF DELAYS RESULTING IN MISSED FLIGHTS WAS ABOVE AND BEYOND BELIEVABLE. NO COMMUNICATION BETWEEN GATE AGENTS AND INCORRECT INFO ON FLIGHTS AND DEPARTURE TIMES WAS TRULY BEYOND BELIEF"
Cons: "Close to a 4 hour delay. No explanation."
Pros: "Flight attendant was great"
Cons: "Overbooked flight. Only able to board because someone missed flight. Delayed flight by over 30 minutes."
Cons: "Both flights were over 1 hour late. Weather was fine so difficult to understand delays."
Cons: "Have to pay for entertainment on such a long flight. Crew was very rude"
Cons: "Even as a member and my status within the Aeroplan program (which I am allowed to have up to 3 bags checked free of charge) I was charged."
Cons: "We did not make this flight due to the first flight being over an hour late. This caused us to miss our connection to St. Louis. While they rerouted others on the flight, they did not reroute us because we didn't check any luggage! Their reasoning was we had a chance to make the connection. But they made us wait in a line for 10 minutes to be told that despite our requests to go to the gate. By then it was too late. We then had to fly stand by to Chicago and stand by again to get to St. Louis."
Pros: "Good flight once we got on board."
Cons: "Plane was about an hour late taking off, seems the maintenance guy lives 45 minutes from the airport and we all had to wait on him to get there to look at a paint chip on the nose, which took about a minute. They might want to have someone on hand."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "They were weighting carry on luggage. My luggage was was 22pound and they asked me remove one pound. Plain redicules. They don't provide any snack. West jet is much better option. They have screen TVs. Very boring . Extremely tight leg space. Air Canada is coping Spirit Airlines since they are monopoly. Not many airlines have direct flights to Montreal. They are taking full advantage of it."
Pros: "The leg room was fantastic. Cabin temp perfect."
Cons: "Food was okay. but better than cheaper flights. Hard to beat Swiss."
Pros: "The crew- very pleasant and attentive. Also the lady that checked us in at the airport in Barcelona was super helpful and tried her best to get us 2 seats together . She even blocked the seat in the middle of us!"
Cons: "No Entertainment - no screens for such a long flight"
Pros: "Seats are confortable, meals good and the crew are very nice"
Pros: "-Staff offered free things like headphones and 15 minutes of wifi access to compensate for multiple delays -Cheap! -I was rescheduled to this flight after my previous flight was delayed and prevented me from taking my original flight back, but I was moved up to boarding zone 3 in return"
Cons: "-Significant delay prevented me from checking in to my room, which was highly inconvenient. Fortunately I had a friend who was willing to have me, but if not (and because the nearby hotels are filled up due to the beginning of freshman orientation at my college), I would have had nowhere to stay after 13+ hours of flying and exhaustion. This alone significantly hurt the experience."
Cons: "There was no complimentary checked luggage. Not impressed because usually this is only done by the cheap budget airlines not a national airline."
Pros: "The flight was on time and that is something really important to me. There was really no complaints about this flight"
Cons: "My headsets weren't working but it was a really minor problem."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Why is there no TV?"
Pros: "It was on-time, left enough time to reach connections and my bag arrived."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to get an aisle seat and have a decent amount of room. The food wasnt bad and there were plenty of bathrooms available on the plane."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight due to the flight to Toronto being delayed for some reason. No other flights were available to get me to my final destination for 24 hours and the gate team doesnt report to the gate until 20 minutes til boarding time. Not much in the way of customer assistance. Zero movies available and no wifi on the planes make for a long trip to Europe from N. America."
Cons: "The entertainment options seem quite limited for a flight that long. Most of the movies and television episodes offered were dated."
Pros: "Friendly crew and nice experience overall, entertainment top notch"
Cons: "Could not buy food with my debit card.....was hungry"
Cons: "Small seats, no legroom, mediocre food"
Pros: "I liked the fare, hated everything else. Ended up wishing I would've just booked another, better airline since I paid for a seat upgrade on Air Canada Rouge and ended up paying the same rate as better airlines anyway!"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment, had to bring my own iPad. Food was AWFUL. Didn't even eat it."
Cons: "Slow and stupid some of passages"
Pros: "I flew Air Canada from Copenhagen to Toronto in June of 2016. Air Canada personnel are friendly, polite, treat everyone as a welcomed guest. Of all the major airline carriers, Air Canada demonstrates consistent exceptional customer service and have set a standard other carriers should yake note and master."
Pros: "Flights were all on time, crew and staff was very nice. Food was better then other flights I've been on."
Cons: "Seats were so uncomfortable, smaller and did not recline as much as other air canada airplanes I have been on. There was no entertainment for the almost 7 hour flight unless you uploaded the app prior to boarding which we were not told and could not because our devices, or you rented a tablet (which for this long of a flight it shold be included). The cabin was warm and stuffy with not much airflow which made my motionsickness worse and the plane was all on one setting so I could not control anything."
Pros: "Very smooth flight crew attendants very nice"
Cons: "There is no TV to watch movied"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, staff were organized and efficient, luggage came out fast"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and quick. The crew was good communicators."
Cons: "Boarding in Toronto was tough as there was a flight to Dubai adjacent to our gate and we had to compete for the ability to get through the crowd to the boarding gate. Once past that point boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Plane was very hot!"
Pros: "The flight attendant was well informed and quite helpful."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment movies available. Glad they came around with water periodically."
Cons: "The flight tracker was not on the big tv most people could see. It would have been nice to track the flight."
Cons: "The boarding format the people at the back of the plane board last therefor waiting for everyone to put there carry ins away and sit down creating a slower boarding"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so Gate Agent reconfigured seating so solo flyers did not have to share row. When air traffic issues delayed flight, crew let us move around and they served water. Full video options for such a short flight and small plane was nice."
Pros: "Lots of newspapers...I love crosswords.....good movie....nice attendant..."
