Expected A320neo as per the booking, got a 28 years old A321. Still no food service. Not impressed at all this time by Lufthansa.
Your seats in economy are absurdly close together. I felt like I was locked in a box. I was so disappointed. I have previously flown Lufthansa many times and always held you in high regard. No more.
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: "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: "delay of 2hours caused by disturbed person poor crew reaction no info to other passengers"
Pro: "The crew was amazing"
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: "Suitcase did not arrive, had a 3+ hours layover in Frankfurt, enough to get my bag sorted and sent to Oslo, but did not arrive"
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 flight was OK and I had a good seat. The service was fine."
Contra: "Connecting time were bad, airports horrible, no information, customs bad with no respect for travelers. I had to run to catch all my flights! Bad experience."
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: "Food was great. The crew was very polite and professional"
Contra: "Great flight"
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!"
Pro: "Seats and table are small, very cramped quarters,I’m 6ft 1 &. 210 & it was very tight, can’t really stretch your legs out or get comfortable enough to sleep, the crew was very good, always spot on when needed & constantly offering drinks & warm towels."
Contra: "I really didn’t like our party being separated when we bought our tickets all together, my niece was uncomfortable being away from us on a long flight, this part of the booking process is very frustrating as your seat can be sold to someone willing to pay for it & you get moved unknowingly & when you go to board your seats have been changed."
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."
Pro: "Service was great, pilots were amazing no decompression pain in my ears."
Contra: "The flight was delayed in Warsaw for 1:30 hours"
Contra: "crew was not friendly"
Contra: "Expect to pay $85 euro for a carry on bag that they will ask you to check in. This is our returning trip with the same set of bags for the round trip to Paris. At the gate we were asked to check in the other carry on bag which we bought right before the trip making sure it fit the new small size req. Still that was put into check-in. We ended up with no carry on luggages with us boarded. Only to find quite a lot of bags that are much bigger than ours were allowed to be in the cabin."
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: "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."
do not use Ryanair, delays of more than one hour
They did not Tool uș to TLV as We hâd to do Corona test
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: "Nothing. I never took a flight so bad in my life."
Contra: "They could have another line to the people that couldn’t make check-in online, but they prefere to charge you a amount of $55,00 euros. Me and my husband tried to do the check-in online but the system was out off service and than when we tried again, 2 hour before departure, it was no possible"
Pro: "Good pilot"
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: "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: "While the movies choices were limited and the quality not that great, the price was not large either."
Pro: "Flight on time staff very friendly and efficient. All good."
Contra: "All was perfect."
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!"
Contra: "have to pay 55 euro’s for checkin .... crew very rude at the desk"
Contra: "While going through security, Ryan Air misplaced my husband's shoes, which caused us to miss our flight. We then had to paid €100 each to get on a flight to Manchester 2.5 hours later & then we had to take 2 trains from Manchester to Liverpool We missed our tour in Liverpool & had to pay £45 for it anyway."
Pro: "Friendly crew."
Contra: "Hour late departure , which is a frequent event... perhaps due to summer weather. Putting a two year old sitting alone, away from parents and insisting parents should make arrangements with other passengers. Standing outside the plane another fifteen minutes."
Contra: "Waiting room was cramped. Waiting passengers who needed to use the restroom were only allowed to go one at a time"
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: "Flight was delayed"
Contra: "Delayed then not delayed then the crew were late and made no attempt to hurry themselves then wen we boarded we were told we were delayed an hour and 40 minutes so had to sit there on the plane with no1 telling us wats going on or wen we were leaving! No refreshments available while we were waiting really poor from Ryan air I won't be flying with them agen"
Contra: "Needed to catch connecting flight after Milan to Liverpool flight .. which was Liverpool to Belfast.. already delayed couple days due to weather.. long story short - they put tags on bags to put in hold which meant I wouldn’t catch connecting to Belfast as I’ve have to wait at carousel (Dublin not operating due to snow) , explained my story that I needed to catch this flight in order to have any chance of making uncles funeral but she completely ignored it, and said that’s not my problem!! Couldn’t believe my ears.. Disgusting behavior"
Pro: "The flight boarding was delayed by 45 mins originally, which was added 15 mins onto then half an hour when we were then we were all very badly moved to another area when I say very badly, we were given poor instructions and me and some other passengers almost ended up on the wring flight. After we finally got to where we were supposed to be half hour was said that came and gone then another 15 mins when we were moved back to boarding area. Another half hour finally got boarded then and after this was the usual great Ryanair experience."

Pro: "Crew was kind and the ride was easy and mostly on time."
Contra: "Gate changed three times in twenty minutes leaving me running all over BCN. Also, the plane was scorching hot until close to takeoff. Could not pay for snacks with credit card. Seats don’t recline."
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: "Nice staff easy flight going to Venice, Italy"
Contra: "Coming from Venice, Italy to Frankfurt Hahn was very rough. Pilot took very sharp turn in the air and felt g forces through my body along with the wife. Landing was very rough and went too fast and had very hard breaking last minute on the runway and when turning into the terminal for drop off."
Pro: "Speedy boarding."
Contra: "Stansted security a pain. Seat uncomfortable."
Contra: "boarding process is the worst. always having to check in your carryon just to speed up the process. always asking your boarding pass for a second time once you're getting inside the plane...whats the point?"
Contra: "Anxiety over the luggage."
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: "Staff at Dublin and on board very helpful we were traveling with a two year old and they were great help. Flight good and arrived on time all round good experience"
Pro: "Seat was comfortable"
Contra: "Charges to print boarding pass was extremely high and the system was down so took way too long to get resolved. Made for a very poor experience. Boarding process was an awkward mess."
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."
Contra: "The plane was dirty"
Pro: "Cost: 35Euro!!! Confortable enough seats, nici crew. Top bad, Ryanair and similar, do not operate in USA..."
Contra: "The weather! Just kidding..."
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"
Pro: "it was ontime"
Contra: "The airline does a poor job of letting you know their baggage limit and check in policy. Its nothing like any airline I have ever flown. In addition, they send you Greek emails with your VAT receipt. I went to their counter and they said an error had occurred because I had chosen English as my main language. The said emails in English will be sent. It never happened. I got a sense that they want to make it possible for you to collect your VAT."
Contra: "I you don't check in within 2 hours only. You have to pay extra"
Pro: "The price is the main reason to fly. It was on time and efficient. Would definitely ride this airline again."
Contra: "Restrictions on baggage made me have to rearrange. Nothing major, just a slight inconvenience."
Contra: "Ryanairs policy of checking in online or paying a 45 euro fee is ridiculous. I've never heard of an airline charging people as they check in at the airport. On top of that, they make it so you can't even check in online within 2 hours of the flight so you're forced to pay when you get there. It's a sneaky crooked system Ryanair has in place. I'm incredibly dissatisfied with my treatment from Ryanair and I will never be flying with them again."
Pro: "Flight attendants were very nice."
Contra: "Charging £66+ just to print a boarding pass at the airport is ridiculous."
Pro: "I hated everything"
Contra: "I will never fly with Ryanair again. They ripped off all my money. If I would have booked 2 tickets with British airways would have been much better and cheaper."
