Awful delays, missed connection, no assistance, total disaster
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "The flight attendants were stellar--polite, respectful, helpful, attentive. I want to particularly commend the attendant who, after I notified her that someone was very ill in the adjacent bathroom, stood discreetly nearby and offered the person a glass of water when he emerged. Very considerate."
Cons: "The transfer was a horrible, stressful experience. We knew it as a short connection but Lufthansa had accepted it. On our outward bound flight three weeks earlier, we were all met and escorted swiftly by a flight attendant from the first leg plane (EWR-MUN) to the second leg plane (MUN-Nice) to ensure that we all made it onboard. Impressive. On our return journey, no such luck! No attendant to meet us, and a huge line at immigration, full of panicked and stressed-out passengers jockeying for position, with no-one from ANY airline there to do a triage for those with the shortest connections. Ridiculous. In addition, the passport-scanning machines were very slow and quirky. My own passport was rejected because there was no evidence I had passed through Munich on my outward bound journey!! RIDICULOUS. I managed to slip through to a human being and begged the immigration officer to let me go through with my husband, who had had no such problem. The officer told me he could not find a stamp from my earlier transit through!!! Eventually I suppose he did because he let me through. The stamp was there, I found it, but it had been sloppily applied and was half off the page...hence the rejection by the scanner. We made the flight by minutes. NOT GOOD! Surely Lufthansa could do better in their own country???"
Pros: "Good flight in a nice A380, I’m in the top floor on premium economy."
Cons: "Crew is not smiling a bit and slow service even if she serve only 32 of us in our section. Flight is not really smooth and shake a lot."
Cons: "I don’t have bed for my baby and I asked the server for yogurt she never tell me they have or not"
Cons: "Flight from dc to Frankfurt was delayed 4 hours. Flight from Frankfurt to Amman was cancelled and rebooked for the next morning."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Everything else was average."
Cons: "With the exception of one Asian cabin crew, others were cold. Food has worsened on Lufthansa. Portion and quality are not as good as 1 year ago. I find the seat average in comfort for premium economy. If only the seat would move forward, I keep sliding off it. Cathay Pacific has a much better seat."
Cons: "Guy beside me was always sitting to his friends."
Pros: "Booked upper deck, lots of leg room and space. Very comfortable 11hr flight. Staff were lovely and food good."
Pros: "Boarding was a bit hectic loading an A380 and that was probably the worst part. Service was very pleasant but a little scarce. Premium Economy was better than most. Food was not that good and ranked with the boarding."
Cons: "Food and boarding"
Pros: "Great film choices, short flight time - no delays. The flight was relatively full but I experienced no discomfort and the food was good. I think they ran out of one option but this didn't bother me as it wasn't my choice."
Pros: "The Lufthansa app provides updates on plane status and gate number, etc."
Cons: "Seats felt like Adirondack chairs..hard and no lower back support."
Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "seats too small"
Pros: "I flew in the A380 bulkhead at row 50 from Munich to Hong Kong. Have flown premium economy with Lufthansa before, it was no different from before. The service is efficient. Entertainment was fine and had an interesting selection in their world cinema section."
Cons: "A pretty standard experience and nothing which makes you feel special. Other airlines might offer an upgraded meal in premium economy or a special cocktail, but not on Lufthansa."
Cons: "I havent gotten on a flight yet."
Pros: "Flight was on time, food good. Even the movie selection was great, but ... (see what I didn't like)"
Cons: "Entertainment (sound) in seat 14K didn't work, despite 1 reboot. Please fix."
Cons: "The air on the plane was unable to be controlled."
Cons: "My luggage was covered in a liquid similar to honey. The wheels for my baggage was broken and i had to carry the bag instead of drag it."
Pros: "It was very relaxing."
Pros: "The Lufthansa flight from Charlotte to Munich and then toMumbai was excellent. Punctual, Food and the Service was good.the"
Cons: "The Air India did not transferred my luggage when I reached there midnight. The Air India Ticket counter opened at 2:30 AM only then they booked my luggage to Bangalore. The luggage was handled very poorly and they broke my Golf Carrier which I bought for $350 in September of 2016. The Airlines wanted to settle for $15 compensation."
Pros: "Flew back last weekend in February. Transfer between plane from Barcelona in Frankfort (LH hub) to flight to Boston extremely chaotic. Masses of passengers all attempting to transfer to US bound flights. Insufficient staff from both Lufthansa and German border control to process or even organize the masses of people flying that day. Mob scene at transfer points. Not up to LH usual standards. Quite surprising as their passenger volume data should have alerted them to impending problems. Our flight was delayed over an hour for takeoff so USA bound connecting passengers (whose luggage was already on the planes) could be processed."
Cons: "Chaos and disorganization. Masses of connecting passengers unable to get to their flights anywhere near planned boarding time. Takeoffs delayed substantially."
Cons: "flight crew hit my chair all the time with the troller. Bought the places with bigger space on the legs, that was true, but was dissapointed with the type of chair that is totally closed at the sides, with no scape room for the legs laterally."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "I had to pay extra because I didn't know that Lufthansa only allows one piece of luggage for international passengers, unlike most of their competition. Cost me $375 extra!!!"
Pros: "The entire crew was very professional and friendly, and I could tell that each one of them really liked their job. I am a seasoned traveler and have flown in the past on every major and minor airline, and I have to rate my flight LH424 from Munich to Boston as one of the best."
Cons: "I cannot think of a thing that I did not like."
Pros: "Quick loading and departure."
Cons: "The gate changing 3 times."
Pros: "I liked the food and courteous staff. Our flight was on time in order to connect to our next flight. They assisted us to our waiting wee Lchairs."
Cons: "Everything was ok. Nothing I did not like on that flight"
Pros: "Great seats!"
Cons: "Staff didn't seem very happy."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Seat comfort, service excellence"
Cons: "Quite outdated movies on entertainment system"
Cons: "Entertainment system didnt work for many people on the flight"
Pros: "free upgrade to business class :)"
Pros: "Nothing, really nothing"
Cons: "Really never had less room in a seat!!!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5 hrs and then completely canceled. They never gave us a reason as to why it as canceled and when they canceled it, they directed the entire group of the people on the plane to 4 different gates before getting a gate agent to tell us that we had to leave the gate and go back to the ticket counter and start over again. The security in Israel is very intense, so this was a big hassle. Then they only had 3-4 gate agents to rebook all 300+ people on the flight so we waited in like for 3 hours."
Pros: "Good staff, comfortable seat"
Cons: "The transfer from one Lufthansa flight to another"
Pros: "all was perfect and helping"
Cons: "nothing all are fantastic"
Pros: "Really NOTHING!!!"
Cons: "I didn't enjoy I had to search if my flight was cancelled due to. Lufthansa pilots strike. I'm not enjoying to still wait to find out if I have a flight to get back to the States on Monday because my flight was cancelled. I'm really annoyed to get this survey since Lufthansa should know there was NO flight to LA today!!!"
Pros: "Geat customer service by flight attendants."
Pros: "Shortness of flight from Genoa to Munich"
Cons: "Layover following"
Pros: "Lufthansa seems to have friendlier more helpful customer service than does Webjet's customer service."
Cons: "Webjet customer service didn't seem very friendly or concerned about helping to request fees waived from themselves and Lufthansa."
Pros: "Loved the staff, very nice! The food options were good & I appreciated the veggie options. Desert could be optional since I never eat it. Oh & the beverage cart with all the options is the absolute BEST."
Cons: "No noise barriers. I realize people will bring babies on flights, but after 11 straight hours (seriously, 11!) of screaming babies, the whole plane was tired & on edge."
Pros: "The fact is actually took off."
Cons: "Gate change at the exact time we were to board causing a 1:45 delay since our flight wasn't in the correct spot for the flight control deck to push our plane back. We made our connecting flight by about 8 minutes in Munich."
Pros: "Plenty of food & beverages. Loved the free movies!"
Cons: "Full plane, no options to spread out."
Pros: "Nice trip"
Pros: "Smooth landing in Chicago."
Cons: "The crew in my section near the rear of the plane was competent, but snippy. None seemed approachable. I contrast them with the Lufthansa crew from Toronto to Munich who were short-handed but so pleasant even though they were overworked due to some crew members not showing up. Lufthansa food is average at best. The central restroom area on the MUC to ORD flight became filthy. Aren't crew members supposed to police that area? Or are passengers supposed to bring rubber gloves to clean it halfway through the flight?"
Pros: "The crew were professional, service is excellent, plenty of food, beverage, and entertainment."
Cons: "Gate crew unfamiliar with child restraint seat regulations and recommendations."
Cons: "We booked our group of four with Lufthansa, paying $300 more than equivalent flights on competing airlines, specifically because our 20 month old daughter fits within Lufthansa's age, height, and weight limits for using the bassinet. We have reserved our tickets and the bassinet over two months in advance, paying $35 extra per seat for these reservations, and even got an email that specifically stated "bassinet confirmed". On the flight, when it came time to install the bassinets, the flight attendant came to us, took a look at our daughter, and said that she will not fit in the bassinet, that she is too tall, and too heavy, and suggested that we should have checked the limits for the bassinet before coming on the flight. When we inquired as to the actual limits, she could not provide any numbers, only said that she could see that our daughter is too big for it. When the family next to us got their bassinet, it became very obvious that our daughter would fit in the bassinet, and we pointed out that she was well below the height and weight limits published on the Lufthansa website. Only then did the flight attendant admit that there were other babies on the flight, and they only had four bassinets on the plane, despite having 11 slots where bassinets could be installed. Our reservation months in advance did not matter - we did not get the bassinet. As compensation, we were offered some Lufthansa miles, or 50 euros for in-flight duty free shopping. However, we lost close to 1000 dollars as a group when we chose to fly Lufthansa rather than a less expensive airline. We were very uncomfortable throughout the flight, having to hold my daughter in my arms for over five hours. We are are still very upset that the crew blatantly lied to us."
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: "Ran out of the best meal option in Business Class..."
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."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was great and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Maybe we needed to specify this earlier, but there were no vegetarian options offered for the meals. It's minor, but it'd be nice to have that option when we're asked instead of needing to arrange it beforehand."
Cons: "Fatigue from job"
Pros: "See above for overall summery both AC and Jaz."
Cons: "Not sure which screwed up on bags."
Pros: "staff was great checkin at the airport was a breeze and love the 2 checked free luggage for international flights. food was mediocre but what do you expect, I'm just glad we got 2 meals and 2 snacks. great touch."
Cons: "only issue was the fact the online checkin was unavailable to us for some reason which basically left my girlfriend and I sitting in separate rows in between 2 people for 17 hours. entertainment was also pretty lacking with only a few movies available."
Pros: "Service was excellent - staff was very attentive, pleasant and helpful and seemed like they truly enjoyed their job. We will definitely use them again when flying from Montreal"
Pros: "They seemed like a good airline. It was my first time flying with them, and I got upgraded to business class on the very first flight of my trip. What a great first impression! They're quite service oriented, with attendants speaking multiple languages. The in-flight magazine was good but not available on every plane. The food was usually pretty good, and the live map was convenient."
Cons: "All of the flights were late (I had 6 of them on this trip, all thru Air Canada, and not a single one departed on time). All of my layovers were long, except one, which was planned to be about an hour but ended up being less than 30min. That one was a pain: had to go through Canadian customs and then run across the Toronto airport, but thankfully my next flight was still boarding - and ended up running late because they had to de-ice the plane. One of the flights ran late, and as we were reaching the gate a passenger felt the need to yell racist/ignorant comments at a fellow passenger who wouldn't sit down, and then the flight attendant - overall that was a real shame."
Pros: "The boarding started one hour early to allow passengers to board on time."
Cons: "A flight stewardess did not respond to a call twice as if the call light was not turned on."
Cons: "left with 2 hours delay because the fuel was not ready. Then we had an unexpected landing in Vancouver to change flight crew. That meant an additional 2 hours of delay. Finally we accumulated 2 more hours of delay. The final total was 6 hours of delay for no clear reason."
Pros: "Cheap air fares"
Cons: "Could not use airline websites to select seats due to using a third party agent like kayak. Had to call both Alaska Air and Air Canada before I could secure seats."
Cons: "Food was served and drinks only arrived after you finished your meal. This happened for all meals."
Pros: "Good price, clean, free movies, descent movie selection."
Cons: "Bring your own snacks. No gluten free options unless pre-arrange. No fruit, no peanuts, no option to buy food, and the snack gallery only had pretzels. If you like bread, butter and water, should be ok. Close seats, can feel movement of people beside and behind."
Pros: "good to have 3 meals for this long haul flight"
Cons: "Flight delay more than 1 hour ! Took very very long to board Poor choice of movie. Too few, Too old"
Cons: "Have no blanket to passenger"
Pros: "Free food and beverages"
Cons: "No snacks between meals"
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."
Pros: "Nothing to like, just fair"
Cons: "3 toilets broken, unfriendly crew, disorder on bording, brake my luggage, I think is enough to unlike them"
Pros: "The seats were unbelievably squishy. And the crew was quite rough."
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."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight due to late take off from Paris and long wait at customs in Montreal."
Pros: "Seats are confortable, meals good and the crew are very nice"
Cons: "There was no complimentary checked luggage. Not impressed because usually this is only done by the cheap budget airlines not a national airline."
Cons: "They lost my luggage!!!"
Pros: "Great service, friendly staff. Good food and wine. On time arrival."
Pros: "Flight crew was great. Aircraft was great."
Cons: "Food could have been a little better."
Pros: "The flight attendants, especially Theresa, were fantastic. Theresa was very attentive, fun, and made each passenger feel special. The flight crew Supervisor greeted us each by name and leads a spectacular crew. The seat, amenities, entertainment, and food were just amazing."
Cons: "Business class did not have it's own boarding call."
Pros: "Friendly crew and nice experience overall, entertainment top notch"
Cons: "Could not buy food with my debit card.....was hungry"
Pros: "Crew, entertainment, food was 3/5 not many options (I liked it more than not)"
Cons: "No wifi, food selection wasn't really optional and it felt like school lunches"
Pros: "Newer plane, clean bathrooms for most of the flight. Good food choices for meals."
Cons: "No amenities like eye mask, ear plugs, toothbrush etc. No snacks between meals except for pretzels. Armrest buttons get pressed all the time by accident."
Pros: "Very good food. Great range of entertainment -- much better than United, which last year gave no selection for the long rides between Beijing and Chicago"
Cons: "Boarding process. We had four flights on Air Canada, and were put in the last boarding group on every one of them, which makes it hard to get overhead space. It seems statistically impossible for them to assign the worst boarding group to the same people every time, but they did it."
Pros: "The entertainment was great though the sound quality was lacking. The movies with subtitles were better."
Cons: "The did was pretty dire. Cup of noodles was not a good lunch at all and they ran out of the breakfast and lunch options."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, staff were organized and efficient, luggage came out fast"
Pros: "Staff was courteous and professional. Food was not bad. I could never get a coffee, because they are not allowed to serve hot drinks when the seatbelt sign is on, which it was for minor turbulence during both the dinner and snack service. Would have been nice if they came around again after the turbulence ended for those who wanted hot drinks, but this is just a minor complaint."
Pros: "The choice in entertainment The flight attendents New plane"
Cons: "Flew on a new BOEING 777-200LR. They decided to maximize the amount of passengers per flight by adding additional seats to each row causing very cramped conditions. I am only 5'8" at 160 lbs and was extremely uncomfortable the entire trip. I may have had an extra inch of room from my knee to the chair in front of me. I couldn't stretch my legs out at all."
Cons: "The flight was 4 1/2 hours late with no prior notification."
Pros: "Seats were as comfortable as it could get for long haul economy flight. Food was decent everything was clean."
Pros: "Great food and overall service for premium economy. Seats were more comfortable than economy I've had in the past."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment computers are extremely laggy compared to modern tablets. Air Canada should make friends with the Google and Apple's of the world. Should try to include more episodes of the tv shows rather than just a select few episodes."
Pros: "I was very kindly provided an upgrade and seat beside was empty, it was a great flight. thank you!"
Pros: ".... the very logical humane boarding, special attention to kids and older citizens."
Cons: ". no vegetarian options.... nothing outstanding or comfort feel... nothing that would make me choose the airline as a preference over others ~ other than the price"
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"
Cons: "Not enough workers. Flight crews so stressed that they ignored passengers."
Pros: "The flight was direct and the food service was good and spaced at timely intervals. The crew was courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Lengthy flights are tiring."
Cons: "Our preceding flight arrived 45 minutes late so we got bumped to a later flight. Air Canada dropped the ball completely"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly from beginning to end."
Cons: "It was a packed flight and it felt like I couldn't breath on the flight at times. I was stuck between two very big people."
Pros: "Lots of newspapers...I love crosswords.....good movie....nice attendant..."
