Expected A320neo as per the booking, got a 28 years old A321. Still no food service. Not impressed at all this time by Lufthansa.
Contra: "Flight was cancelled"
Pro: "I didn’t get the chance to experience the seats because I didn’t get to be on the flight due to a huge mistake of a Lufthansa employee"
Contra: "Hire better competent people!"
Pro: "La atención de la tripulación es la mejor que he visto. El servicio de alimentación es muy bueno."
Pro: "Lufthansa is an airline in a different class altogether. Can not compare with any commercial airline that flies to Europe"
Contra: "Great food, comfortable seats, enjoyed the whole 11 hour flight."
Pro: "In-flight crew was friendly, the food & beverages were OK and there were plenty of in-flight entertainment options."
Contra: "They double charged the baggage fees: I prepaid in advance but upon checking in for the return flight the representative wasn't able to locate the appropriate information, although I had a printed copy of the confirmation email they sent. I had to pay for it again which is a lousy experience."
Contra: "Went First Class. What a joke! Coach seats & service. Only difference is they leave the middle seat empty. This appears to be the European standard (we flew on 3 different airlines) for 1st Class within Europe flights. Save your money, fly coach within Europe."
Contra: "terrible experience - hidden fees for 1st checked baggage travelocity messed up on their site when the ticket was purchased when in fact the person that travels needs to pay to check in the luggage"
Contra: "The worst flight I ever had. Extreamly uncomfortable 11 hrs. squized like sardines. Some of the attendants were extreamly rude and unprofecional."
Contra: "We were unable to fly this trip."
Pro: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight was short but pleasant."
Contra: "The long lines. After check in and security, boarding could have involved less of a standing and waiting, with a bit of ahead communication that could be attained. For instance indicate the order of boarding, time until boarding, and place where the passengers from rows 50-70 should form ia line..."
Pro: "The whole trip went smoothly. The price was right. There was a very bad storm in Charlotte before departure. Lufthansa made a delay, and I was very happy about that decision. They were very informative about connections, and emailed important information. Friendly, competent staff!"
Pro: "All good - Lufthansa even handled an unexpected air traffic delay well, meaning my connection still worked. Great price too - booked at short notice and Lufthansa business was half the price of BA. Far better device too."
Contra: "No negatives."
Pro: "Smooth flight"
Contra: "Entertainment was not functioning properly..... only one side of the head phones worked."
Pro: "It was run by UA, better seats then Austrian or Lufthansa in Economy. On time. Very efficient."
Contra: "Could not choose seats online,"
Pro: "My previous flight was delayed and they held the plane for us."
Contra: "They lost our bags and I still haven’t gotten them back. Nobody at the airport was helpful at all and I still can’t get information if my bags are coming or not."
Pro: "I especially like the comfortable seats with plenty of legroom. The flight was on time - perfect!"
Pro: "Flight on time, good service, helpful staff"
Pro: "Crew very nice and carefull"
Contra: "My luggage was destroied ;-("
Pro: "Staff was very polite, helpful, and attentive. Our flight left late due to a delay with the plane, and the flight attendants were very proactive about informing passengers about making connections and doing all they could to help."
Contra: "All good."
Pro: "We originally paid for seats a month before and were told to move seats because the plane was full. Plane was not full. Would like refund."
Contra: "Customer service"
Pro: "Lufthansa has it all together and knows how to fly. I recommend to everyone!"
Contra: "The waiting time"
Pro: "Comfortable seats with plenty of room. Enjoyable crew during the flight."
Contra: "I did not have any complaints about this specific flight."
Pro: "Very good service.."
Contra: "A flight attendant from Bucharest to Frankfurt kept bumping her behind in my shoulder. Before this she was not helpful when I asked her where to put my bag. She shoukd not work with people if she does not like them. Otherwise, everything was great: food, space, movies."
Contra: "crew was not friendly"
Contra: "It wasn't Lufthansa"
Pro: "I was really upset because time for living 6 and we left 8:15 I had connection fly to Romanian I missed because of ...I stay in Germany for 5 hours.I ask Lufthansa too put me on Tarom fly they say is United fly...they really make me updated.I think the crew on United is not friendly.The food waste good in"
Contra: "I like the movie"
Pro: "I have been spoiled with the large planes, so the small ones to me are cramped, but thats with all carriers not just Lufthansa. I generally prefer to fly Lufthansa when heading to Europe."
Contra: "It took over an hour to drop off a bag prior to boarding. I had already checked in online. There were long lines in Bucharest and simply not enough staff working the Lufthansa desks."
Contra: "Although we had reserved (paid) seats as a family in an entire row, upon check in we were given different seats. We had to spend 20 minutes talking with different agents in order to get our original seats."
Pro: "Movie selection, wine and food"
Contra: "Crying babies - outside of the crew control"
Pro: "Efficient boarding. On time departure."
Pro: "Real food with real tableware even in the Econ section. Unbelievably courteous staff. Will make it impossible to fly Anyone else when going overseas"
Contra: "Nothing...I felt spoiled"
Contra: "The food could be better. The ravioli option very oily ."
Pro: "Was served food and drinks for a 2 hr flight between OTP and MUC. Who else does this? My mom was offered transportation assistance throughout the entire flight. Preboarding on every leg of the flight"
Pro: "Plane was clean and service was great."
Pro: "Attention to details, big clean bathrooms, service with a smile, friendly flight attendants, overall a great experience. I think American, United and Delta and other airlines could learn a lot from this Company."
Contra: "Not much, just the USB port on my chair was not working. No biggie. Reported it and should be fixed asap."
Pro: "Despite the wintry weather, a safe take off and a nice flight. A plus to Otopeni (Bucharest) airport administration - clean runaway, no snow no ice on it."
Contra: "Delay time should be posted accordingly at the gate."
Contra: "My flight was cancelled due to the pilots' strike. I only learned about this when I attempted online check in. Lufthansa never attempted to notify me. Then when I called in to the Romania Service Center to rebook, the phones went down in the middle of the call. That is understandable given the extreme volume of calls they were handling. What is unacceptable, is that they made no attempt to contact me once the phones were up. I ended up calling the U.S. service center at 1am local time to rebook...only 3 hours before I needed to leave for the airport. It took an hour - which I paid for at direct dial international rates - to find a flight. I'm very grateful for the U.S. service rep who was kind and helpful. She was the one bright spot in this poorly handled situation."
Pro: "Service was excellent"
Contra: "All would have been great, but the cross Atlantic had a locked seat assignment. I was assigned last row and middle seat, I could not change seat when there were other seats available at check-in. United would not let agents change either. Maybe kayak related? Expedia always allows seat changes"
Pro: "Seat backs are flatter, which for me (a shorter woman) is much more comfortable than the more contoured seats on other airlines."
Contra: "Very dry sandwiches."
Pro: "Flights were on time. Both Air Canada and Lufthansa Airlines Service, including sitting and boarding process were relatively smooth."
Contra: "12 hour long flight from Frankfurt to LA was exhausting."
Pro: "I liked the food and entertainment"
Pro: "Organized boarding, service, left on time"
Contra: "No gluten-free food when they served the food. They said that they didn't serve gluten-free food on short flights, but this was two and a half hours. Also, I had asked for a gluten-free meal when I booked my flight. Not good in today's world, when quite a few people have to eat gluten-free. (I am a medical doctor.)"
Pro: "Everything went fine."
Almost 2h late. Waiting time to departure, waiting to leave the aircraft… everything was a disaster.
British Airways is still just really… boring and grey. Lacking in service, personality and efficiency where other airlines exceed in either luxury, modern efficiency, or cheerful and energetic budget airlines.
Pro: "Service and drinks"
Contra: "Aer Lingus webpage is terrible. Kayak’s is excellent, but I tried to change seats, it would not let me."
Pro: "Wonderful to fly on a small airline that still believes in service - a free cup of coffee and a Tunnocks biscuit - whereas many larger airlines charge for coffee etc."
Contra: "Update passengers as and when possible. Was left in the dark about many things."
Pro: "It was easy to get on and off. The crew were well drilled in the art of moving people on"
Contra: "BA like others charge a premium for using them over easyJet and the like. I take offence to paying £350 for a ticket and hen having to buy a sandwich. If you want to be like low cost airlines, then have the same pricing structure. BA = Rip off."
Contra: "flight was delayed about 2 hours. First hour waited in the plane. Why they've boarded us if we were not able to take off and had to wait in the aircraft? Near Heathrow, we took loops for about one hour. Expensive and offering nothing, no luggage, no seat selection, no meal on board. BA worst than lo"
Pro: "Virtually nothing, even in Club Europe."
Contra: "Crowded cabin, uncomfortable seat pitch, anarchic boarding (even for Club), lousy food and that ghastly safety video."
Pro: "The check in process was easy and straightforward but we were in the front of the line--which was very long. The lady who checked us in was very nice and pleasant and she was there for boarding as well. This process was very smooth for us."
Contra: "No water available unless you paid for it --same true of coffee and they only take credit cards. Was not able to request seats early and ended up next to the bathroom and lots of people standing in my personal space and the smell is overwhelming--the chemical smell."
Pro: "It was short. The crew was friendly."
Contra: "The drinks and snacks were not complimentary."
Contra: "This is the second time your plans have been late! You were late leaving from Venice to London Heathrow on August 1 which I barely made the flight to Glasgow and then coming back your flight is late leaving Edinburgh to Heathrow And my luggage doesn't make it again! You don't even serve water on the airplane which is ridiculous! Your flight crew were nice but you really need to be on time or not schedule flights with such short layover times! And I hope no one takes anything out of my suitcase! And I'm sure nothing will be done so why do you even do a survey?"
Contra: "It was terrible cold. We received no free food or drinks."
Pro: "I think people could entertain themselves but to me it is deplorable to not offer at least complementary water. Complementary coffee would be a nice touch too but at least water."
Pro: "Long haul service and food has improved but service is still kinda ‘cold’. Cabin crew still wears a frown most of the time."
Contra: "The reclining mechanism is not user friendly whereby the chair does not recline smoothly. Unfortunately it falls too quickly and not allow the passenger in the back row to get out of the way. a must thing to improve."
Pro: "movies, etc., accessible/"
Contra: "Plane couldn't be steered after landing...what kind of maintenance is there? had to wait for tow to arrive...missed connecting flight...no assist from Brit Air to figure out how to handle missed connection after arrival."
Pro: "On time. Efficient"
Contra: "No snacks"
Pro: "The flight was cancelled"
Contra: "The flight was cancelled"
Contra: "Unfortunately BA have turned into a budget airline experience at higher than budget airline prices."
Pro: "Great value for the money, nicely priced round trip. Very well scheduled flights, good connections, easy to travel."
Contra: "Little legroom on long flights, no wi fi on board overseas flights, even for purchase. No food available on Europe international flights, but for purchase."
Pro: "The flight attendants were very friendly and helpful - much better than my experiences recently on SwissAir and TAP. That made the difference between an acceptable flight experience and a good one. Food and entertainment options were fine - nothing to write home about."
Contra: "My food tray was broken - okay to eat on but hopefully fixed soon."
Pro: "I love the fact that I was able to find a good price for the tickets...JUST THAO"
Contra: "The fact that the flight was delayed and they didn’t tell about it until 1.30-2 hours before leaving...and that because we pressured them other wise they wouldn’t even bother to announce us. So sorry you guys don’t have another rating UNDER POOR BECAUSE I WOULD LOVE TO GIVE IT TO YOU...."
Contra: "waiting for boarding waiting for the take off waiting for the meal tired staff broken laguagge at the and no promised phone call from the laguagge department"
Pro: "almost nothing"
Contra: "waiting long time for check no meal on board"
Contra: "No food!!! No coffee!!! No water!!! "Brilliant" like low-cost !!!!! Incredible!!!"
Pro: "Flight was early."
Contra: "Didn’t offer water or anything else. Was selling food/drinks."
Contra: "terribly small seats!!! I had a gout attack after this flight. horrible!"
Pro: "crew was very pleasant and helpful"
Contra: "i ve had seat no 49H the only seat in the airplane with the exterior arm rest whithout cover i took the seat but first time ive got up ive torne my jeans...(ripped them badly and scratched my leg in the sharp piece of metal coming out at the end of arm rest i have shown the crew memeber what happened(a male) in i have filled out a report with the"silver tie lady" i would kindly like to find out what type of compensation i will get for the unpleasant situation of walking around in the LA airport with a big hole in the back of my jeans i can be reached at "firstname.lastname@example.org" or ph (310) 626-3201 kind regards Moldoveanu George Gabriel"
Contra: "transfer from terminal 5 to terminal 3 - process was unclear"
Pro: "That it was on schedule"
Contra: "Having to be told to check luggage when I merely took what I was allowed. I felt that I was targeted because female and possibly thought I would not raise objection."
Pro: "Nice clean new plane. Courteous cabin personnel"
Contra: "Nothing served, not even water or tea, unless you pay for it. No entertainment."
Pro: "comfy seat Nice head side support Nice service Professional crew and pilots - especially the very informative and genial pilot on flight 203"
Contra: "Website better now, but still clunky and cranky to use. Hard to find flight status info OUTRAGEOUS To charge for seat selection on a $1000+ ticket!!! App useless-- did not work for flight status checking BA VERY poor on updating us on flight delays: Kayak informed us of delays by email, not a peep from BA. Hard to set up flight notifications. Boarding process completely baroque: With 6 different priority statuses, should we be in this line or that if we have x status, but are flying this class. Comically absurd."
Pro: "Flight was on time and arrived a little early"
Contra: "Older plane"
Pro: "This is was actually a flight operated by Qatar Airways and my first time with them. And you know what? It was like going back in time: this was exactly what and how BA used to be even 10 years ago. Thank you, Qatar, for wonderful service!"
Contra: "Bag didn't make it, and then the system to get it returned doesn't work as it should."
Pro: "not much"
Contra: "5.5 hours delay"
Contra: "We were loaded onto a shuttle bus and then stood there (some sat, I could only stand...) for 10+ minutes until the last passenger arrived. Not sure what the airline could do differently there unless it's run a "late person shuttle," and from other passengers' remarks, this was unusual for this transfer."
Pro: "Food ok"
Contra: "Couldn't get seat to go flat. Not the only seat with this problem. Seat too narrow in business. No place to put stuff conveniently. Kind of miserable on this A780. Or whatever the big plane is called."
Pro: "Great staff, and very helpful."
Contra: "Small seats, and the website wouldn't let me choose an exit row. The seatbelt signs in the back section DID NOT WORK, and got me scolded when I went up for a bathroom trip (no announcement and you couldn't see any other signs from the seat). When we boarded the plane, the rear half or so of the plane was a ridiculous temperature"
Pro: "The plane got to destination earlier"
Contra: "No in flight entartaiment"
Pro: "The staff is friendly and were genuinely doing their best withwhat they had"
Contra: "The check in / baggage drop off took too long. There were only two workers in that section and for maybe arpund 10-20 mins there was only 1 person helping everyone. It was very frustrating, esp when there were 3 people working in the world club section when that line has fewer people in the first place. I suggest having the world club staff taking some of the regular customers and alternating with the world club members"
Pro: "The crew on the flight from London to Chicago was absolutely amazing, funny with great service... really can't ask for more.."
Contra: "Food was average at best.."
Pro: "The entertainment and the service"
Contra: "Both legs delayed, almost missed connection due to delay and the crew on the flight didn't seem to care. When we asked if they could inform the next flight that our flight wasn't delayed, the stewards response was "our planes don't wait for anyone". Real friendly. Wish Southwest flew to Europe!!!!"
Pro: "No issues."
Contra: "You need to pay for drinks and snacks - feels like low cost airline."
Contra: "Beverages not included and food only by asking"
Pro: "Discreet and attentive customer service"
Contra: "Foot rest did not fully deploy. The remote for IFE was stuck I the cradle"
Was told Dublin airport security would take hours to get through but was only 10 minutes
do not use Ryanair, delays of more than one hour
They did not Tool uș to TLV as We hâd to do Corona test
Pro: "Crew was very polite and professional"
Contra: "Nothing i can think of to be honest"
Contra: "Ryanair announced that we could postpone the flights without any cost due to corona virus and when I tried to reach them/to change the flight date the change tax was still there."
Contra: "Being on time + quiet fellow passengers"
Pro: "No issues - everything went smoothly"
Contra: "There are no nets on the back of the seat in front of you to put things like water bottles - headphones, books etc."
Contra: "Pointless paying for priority boarding as staff just let both lanes board at the same time"
Pro: "Was reasonably on time"
Contra: "Lagguage took for ever to come out."
Pro: "Good pilot"
Contra: "Very unorganised, one person checking in luggage, long queues, two flights mixed together. The boarding gate was really badly organised, passengers being held in a very small space to wait for a bus, the buses were late. Priority boarding wasn’t being checked so everyone was being sent through into the holding space which was about 3 metres by 7 metres standing room only. The plane was late."
Pro: "Flight got me home..."
Contra: "Tatty magazine/menu that was passed round passengers, unclear cabin baggage sizing and almost made to pay extra fee for something that fit!"
Pro: "It is the worst airline on Earth. They barred me from flight, removed my name from the system so that I can't board because they say that I can't travel with EU residence card with which I travelled to all Schengen countries with other airlines. They lied to me and didn't return my money too."
Contra: "They must obey EU laws!"
Pro: "There was no legroom, the sandwiches is missing (not available at all)"
Contra: "Onboarding was like for animalls. After we pass throug the gates, were sticked into the tunnel for 15-20 min in hot air..."
Contra: "Niente.....organizzazione pessima il crew,unica spiegazione e che una giornata troppo affollata!!!! Pessina orgazione...neanche aqua oferta...tutto sulla nostra sofferenza."
Pro: "Great to have cheap flights so must be remembered"
Contra: "Boarding was slow, stuck in hot bus on tarmac."
Pro: "On time flight and decent boarding process (not too much fuss over baggage size and weight)."
Contra: "Seating policy - it’s ridiculous to charge passengers to be seated together, even if they’re flying on the same booking. It only leads to on-board seating “trades” and negotiations to get people to agree to swap seats. Embarrassing!"
Pro: "Clean, comfy, practical. Just as you expect of low cost flight."
Contra: "Staff were tired and although not rude looked like they'd had enough."
Pro: "Nothing stands out"
Contra: "Width of seats was far to small, the seats covers are dated and gruby, the queing process for standard and fast track was a shambles. Checking in was slow due to there being only 1 desk open for a full flight."
Pro: "They denied the me boarding,I want my money back"
Pro: "Although I had a 40 minutes flight, it was really good. The crew were very amiable and fun. All amazing!"
Pro: "Cabin crew very good, lovely flights out and back but food sparse. Lots in the in flight magazine but seemingly little on board. I was v hungry!! Mr O'Leary, love the cheap flights and booking system fine but you could make more money from better food options. Pity."
Contra: "Much waiting in line for most of an hour bofore gate opens and incredibly slow inflight food service"
Pro: "Short and comfortable flight"
Contra: "Setting off time delayed by 40 minutes"
Pro: "They were professional and efficient"
Contra: "It was required to check in prior to arrival to airport to avoid a fee. I did not have internet access still I arrived. I had to pay 55 euro for a simple check in. Not fair to folks who do not use data for internet nor WiFi. A email could be sent 72 hours but that does not mean people check all emails or they even have access to the web. It’s not a fair or smart business move, I will not book with them again."
Contra: "3 hours delay no assistance 1 hour queue to leave registered luggage, paid separately, among screaming children, hot and nervous people"
Contra: "Flight delayed, so usual knock on effect with lifts, people coming to meet."
Contra: "We were not told the reason for the delay. We were not given an estimate of the length of the delay. No update information was given. We all understand there can be problems; but just tell us what they are? Then, we were all called forward to board, but I was still standing 45 minutes later in the queue. Let us wait in (relative) comfort in the terminal (restrooms, drinks, wider seats etc), don't start to board us ridiculously early."
Pro: "On time and fairly quick baggage retrieval. Being able to check-in before you leave UK is very useful."
Contra: "I booked through Kayak and although it does warn about extra charges for baggage, I feel I was duped because I booked for 3 check-in bags at additional cost thinking that would mean for outbound flight and return but once the booking transferred to Last minute on completion it turned out I only had check-in baggage for the outbound flight (different airline) and not for the Ryanair return flight. Ryanair charges more if you book check-in baggage after the original booking so the flights were much more expensive than I had thought. Kayak did not help with this issue. I would not use them again."
Pro: "Everything went very smoothly and was well organised."
Contra: "Too expensive for what you get. Bad landing! Oh dear"
Pro: "I was able to take my guitar as hand luggage, which is very important. Even though guitars exceed the hand baggage limits, many professionals need to be able to carry on their instruments. Priority boarding is essential."
Contra: "The airline made us go to the gate where there was no seating, though they knew the flight was an hour late, so we stood for an hour, before being told we had to check carry on bags in the hold, carrying computers,valuables, batteries, and drinks in our hands (not possible). Card payment on board was disabled. Payment in the currency of the departing country was impossible."
Pro: "Once boarded it was very smooth"
Contra: "Over 3&a half hours delay was sooooo painful"
Contra: "Priority boarding And disembarkation But had to wait half an hour for the parking people WCP recommended by Ryanair then a 15 Minuit journey to collect the car what a joke This was the only downside of what was a good trip In Poland booked taxi and tours were there waiting for us no waiting around"
Pro: "It got me home."
Contra: "Firstly, there were no sandwiches (hot or cold) available on a late afternoon flight, so the remaining food options were poor. Secondly, my £7 Gin and Tonic that I'd hardly touched slid right off the frankly useless trays and into my lap. The flight attendant literally threw me a few paper towels to help. I spent the remaining three hours of the flight soaking wet."
Pro: "It was on time"
Contra: "The cabin was freezing. Also, most passengers were made to check cabin baggage at the gate, reason given as 'a full flight. but once on The plane, there was many empty seats (6 alone in the two rows around me) and the overhead lockers were about half full."
Contra: "You charged me an extra 150 Euro because I did not receive your e mail and could not register on line my flight. I complained at Airport in Greece and no one would assist me. I am writing the NY Times and Washington Post about your strategy to take extra $ from first time flyers of your airline. Shamfull !!!! Harris R Ghersin Professor International Business The Lubin School of Business NYC."
Pro: "I needed a glass of water as soon as I boarded to take some tablets as I was starting to feel unwell. The crew accommodated this immediately and were very pleasent."
Contra: "Why people don't just pay if they want to sit together. It is that way now so go with it rather than main and play chess on the plane, asking people if they will change seats. Sort it out your adults. Surely you can cope for a few hours?"
Contra: "The 1.5 hour delay with no info. We're told that there was a problem that had been affecting the flight all day, they ccould have forewarned us as a matter of courtesy."
Contra: "CHAOTIC. Found the Ryanair booking site difficult to log into with my booking number constantly not being recognised. Once I'd booked it was pay, pay, pay for luggage and seats making the flight expensive. Biggest insult was they took my money for a transfer, return email saying it was accepted. A later email saying it was cancelled with no refund of money. A 12 month credit note ( not seen yet ) which I can't use in 12 months. Now feeling ripped off Will not be flying with Ryanair again."
Pro: "Price was good. Staff are good in general but felt that the cabin crew lacked professionalism - a tough job noted however. Overall very happy with the service - please note my comments."
Contra: "Why did I pay for a priority que ? The point being exactly what ? The herding of customers into a cattle gate affair ? Last call 45 mins before the flight. Cheap flight - cheap organised. I note below someone has stated crew were professional and VERY entertaining ...... thatnis not professional I am afraid. A crew that is busy entertaining the passengers is a crew that lacks focus on the primary role of the cabin safety ... Human Factors !"
Pro: "Price only."
Contra: "Gathering in long queues, not enough room for seating and luggage, stewardesses not really nice and many other remarks."
Pro: "The flight was on time and the pilot landed without any ear discomfort for the three of us as he kept his decent not too quickly"
Contra: "The food supplied by Ryanair is very expensive rubbish"
Contra: "Delayed flight , loads of drunks onboard and very noisy"
Pro: "I can't think of any."
Contra: "Rude gate staff at Otopeni Airport insisting I place my hand luggage in the hold until I informed them I had priority seats. The whole concept of priority boarding goes out the window as boarding was via a bus"
