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: "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."
Pro: "Super service. From gate in Frankfurt to Rome."
Contra: "Communication on which luggage carousel our luggage was going to be on. The screen said, carousel 11 when in actuality, it was carousel 10. Very confusing...and caused me a delay. That’s the only frustration in the entire trip so far."
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."
Pro: "Loved the German touches like real silverware, good wine, and German movies with English subtitles! Also appreciated lots of liquids and never had to go searching for hydration."
Contra: "Everything was great until we landed and I stood up in the aisle. A woman two rows behind opened the overhead compartment and pulled her huge backpack out, landing it right on my head! OUCH! I scolded her and she apologized, but, REALLY? Perhaps the crew needs to reiterate how dangerous this is to do! My head still hurts a little on top, almost a week later. Ugh."
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"
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: "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."
Contra: "Waited in Luftansa line 9.5 hours to rebook flight after Munich airport shut down for 7 hours. Lufthansa totally unprepared for this situation. Understaffed and unhelpful with directions. Finally got to Los Angeles after 48 hours. Still haven’t gotten luggage 2 days later and no communication on when to expect it."
Pro: "see above"
Contra: "see above"
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: "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"
Pro: "Getting off! Ok, i have to use 50 characters... i also liked the check-in counter staff in Orlando."
Contra: "I have flown on many budget airlines that were more comfortable than this flight. Hard uncomfortable chairs with a lack of leg space (and I'm only 1.70m). The food was poor and the service was worse- i pressed my call button for a drink mid-flight and it kept getting cancelled without a steward coming. Finally, after pressing the call button about 10 times a steward came and begrudgingly brought me a drink. Choice of movies was poor."
Contra: "It wasn't Lufthansa"
Pro: "food was great"
Contra: "gate changed and we gad to take the bus to the plane which lead to sn delay and almost the plane couldn't leave before the airport closed. however, we eventually made it ..."
Contra: "Leg room on the 747 was ok. The service was average considering i had to keep asking the staff to atore my son's insuline medication in a cool place, they said they cannot at 1st but eventually they did. The entertainment system had to be rebooted 3 times during the flight which takes 15 to 20 minutes. So it took 3 hrs to finish the movie. The connection flight was a bit redicilous, 1 hr to walk to the other terminal in frankfurt, the 1 hr flight delay , the boarding was like a zoo, no initiative to take control and organize the boarding, the elderly and the children and crammed withe other passengers.."
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: "The energetic crew who served with a smile"
Contra: "The tea was not strong and was served lukewarm and movies not up to standard.how about new blankets...and food only a choice between 2...chicken or pasta..why not beef or mutton?"
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: "On-time, excellent and friendly service. I received the special meal I requested (vegetarian Asian) and it was very tasty."
Contra: "Not very many English language movies. I wasn't able to get the subtitle in English for the German programs."
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: "Wonderful flight, way more comfortable but in the other economy class I've been on"
Pro: "Everything went fine."
Pro: "Good aircraft, good service, on time, eventless"
Contra: "There are two types of foot-rests, both are a nuisance for people with long legs. The one popping up from below one's seat is extremely hard to put back in place. The metallic one folding down from under the seat in front cannot be secured back and is always in the way if the passenger needs to stretch his/her legs. This seems to be a new appliance, and I jut wish they would do away with it altogether. More is not necessarily better."
Contra: "Only a steward that did not help us with luggage when neede..."
Pro: "Spacious business class seats, excellent meals"
Contra: "Lack of ventilation in cabin, and staff refusal to turn heaters down (in September), very limited entertainment options."
Pro: "Crew memebers"
Contra: "Thé qualité officielle the images"
Contra: "Kayak updated me that my flight would be late. It wasn't. Missed it had to pay $700"
Contra: "No leg room at all, cant believe those seats met legal standard. The plane smelled, boarding was a nightmare because too many people had big bags. An announcement had been madd that vags would be collected, but obviously were not."
Contra: "First class bathroom could have been cleaner and wider - very narrow, hard to maneuver"
Contra: "Entertainment worked sporadically"
Contra: "boarding groups were not adhered to and those in a lower boarding group often boarded well after those in later boarding groups."
Pro: "crew was great, seats were comfortable"
Contra: "departure board listed flight as being boarded and gate closed hour before flight leading to confusion and standing in queue for over an hour, part of food was frozen and inedible, paid for upgraded seat which turned out to be by bathroom smells were as bad as you can imagine"
Contra: "Train your ground crew. Our luggage was not placed on our flight from Paris to Amsterdam and were sent to Amsterdam on separate planes. My husband’s medication was in his bag. This was a great inconvenience for us. Never again on Air Canada. I suggest you explore the baggage process used by Delta."
Pro: "Crew was wonderful and welcoming!"
Pro: "Tight seat, was moved out of exit row because of my age"
Contra: "Could have stayed in exit row. Plan arrived in Moscow late so flight was over one hour late"
Pro: "Everything was great"
Pro: "great food, entertainment and seat comfort"
Contra: "The food was mediocre. Flying La Compagnie in the past was a much better food experience."
Pro: "The crew was very gentile."
Contra: "No enterteinment on the plane."
Pro: "On time, staff was nice."
Contra: "Not many options and not even a glass of champagne. That’s a minimal requirement. No sparkling water. Just very limited"
Contra: "The plane (Boeing 777) is packed like a sardines can, with 10 narrow uncomfortable seats across in Economy Class. The crew didn't even bring water for an 1,5 hr into the flight! The plane was very hot, with very little air flowing through the salon. Food was bland for dinner and inedible for breakfast. The crew was barely there, and borderline rude when asked something."
Pro: "On time."
Contra: "Did not seat together passengers, although booked and checked in at the same time."
Pro: "Quiet! No noise-canceling earphones needed. Delicious food."
Pro: "From the boarding, to the friendly hostesses to the food and the business class seat, I was impressed all the way. My first time to fly Air France business to the US and it was great. I recommend it!"
Contra: "I just expected better toilet bag for business but what was given out was just basic."
Contra: "Airplane delay to take off 1 unknown reason After landing in Paris 50 min sitting inside airplane moving around Late for flight transfer. Sitting in Paris airport 5 hours. Customer service no working. Never fly Air France anymore !"
Contra: "We were 2h late"
Pro: "Ground crew at CDG was helpful to file a claim for the lost luggage."
Contra: "Ground crew at MXP Was inexperienced. She called every one in my flight to form a new line and it was immediately total chaos. And then they lost one of our luggages!"
Pro: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The food very good"
Contra: "First the plane was delayed because of a technical issue that I think they should check before The plane was crowded and old."
Contra: "Please see comments above about this flight."
Contra: "Airplane really old. Cabin configuration economy was in front of economy plus. Just 1 bathroom for economy and economy plus. Economy plus seats old and uncunfuttable ( more than it should be )"
Contra: "I don’t know why they keep making boarding with stairs and bus."
Pro: "Only the cabin crew was good."
Contra: "It was the worst flight that I ever had, the seats are extremely uncomfortable, no TV, the food was terrible."
Pro: "The airplane have great entertainment system. The cabin crew are very nice."
Contra: "Booked assistance and got dumped at the gate 3hrs before departure, no English spoken and didn't even ask if my mum needed the bathroom or if we wanted to do some shopping. Just in a rush to get rid of us. Flying only KLM from now."
Pro: "Everything was very prefect and would love to fly again."
Pro: "On time after latish start"
Contra: "Staff took carryon bags even for skypriority even tho lots of room in overhead, allegedly to speed deplaning. Nowarning to repack. Infuriating and stubborn staff!"
Pro: "Short, lots of leg space"
Pro: "The seats are spacious. They give you great amenities such as a toothbrush, etc. The crew was very nice. The food was also superb for airplane food."
Contra: "The check in process was terrible at SFO. We all felt like cattle being herded on. It was such a mess. The seats are surprisingly uncomfortable in premium economy. The headrest is not conducive to sleeping."
Pro: "You can't go wrong with delta when it comes to customer satisfation. It's the primary reason I'm okay with paying extra money for delta flights"
Pro: "Crew was great."
Contra: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pro: "The time of the flight was great as well as the arrival time and subsequent connections to Paris. Enjoyed the rather full line of in flight beverages!"
Contra: "Leaving late seemingly without reason from Paris - chaotic boarding line in Paris with difficult to hear PA. Seats were ok'ish but than again, it's a 45 minute flight. The sandwich was gross and I'm somewhat known as a person who eats everything!"
Pro: "Service was much better than on the flight from MIA to CDG 3 weeks before - that was very poor. Entertainment was excellent - great selection of movies. Premium Economy was definitely worth the upgrade cost."
Contra: "Boarding was a complete debacle - no control over who went where. Sky Priority line was full of 50 people who weren't Sky Priority, and there was only one person checking passports. The two people at the desk didn't care when I noted this. We were called to the desk in advance of boarding to check passport information. When we got to the check in line, we were taken aside for more passport checking, even though we are US citizens with Trusted Traveler status in the GOES program. We were one of the first people at the departure lounge, and one of the the last to board."
Pro: "Crew was great"
Contra: "Not enough food"
Contra: "Meal choice missing kosher non-gluten combination."
Pro: "I like that they still feed you and provide alcohol for free, even on a 40 min flight (unlike BA)."
Contra: "At one point during the flight I took a video out of my window with my camera, a member of the cabin crew barked at me in French. In bewilderment I asked her in English to repeat herself and she sarcastically repeated what she had said, in French, I asked for her to speak in English (which she had done to me previously on this Paris to London flight) yet again she scolded me in French. I was left absolutely none the wiser and it left a bad taste in my mouth."
Pro: "Movie selection was awesome! Food was good too."
Contra: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."
Pro: "This plane was the nicest plane I had ever been on. Very comfortable and the entertainment was amazing!"
Contra: "Airplane food is airplane food I guess."
