Typischer inner-europäischer flug. Frühstück in der Business Class sehr rudimentär
Wir flogen Business Class Langstrecke auf dem A350. Das Bett ist etwas kurz und geht sehr spitz an den Füßen zu. Die bestellte Obstplatte war schwach.
The check in wasnt so good and fast
Check in was a disaster. We had to check in to each leg separately - and had to figure that out on our own. Buying a FinnAir marketed flight created a nightmare.
Nice amount of leg room compared to others .
[ ] Chaotic is an understatement! I was flying from Helsinki to Los Angeles via Stockholm and eventhough I booked everything directly thru finnair, they gave me only 35 min to change planes that required crossing accross terminal 5 and going thru customs. I asked helped to different staff multiple times and no one cared. Finally when I made it to the gate the flight had been delayed because finnair did the same thing to other flights yet the app and website never updated. Finnair made several of us think we had missed our flight! [ ] Then when I got to the gate, the staff checked all of my documents again eventhough I had been checked in Finland less than 2 hrs before. If you fly with Finnair get ready for chaos. [ ] Messy online presence. Too many emails saying the same thing but hard to find relevant information (for example, I couldn't find any information about the trip from Stockholm to LAX) [ ] they provide the option to check in online and tag your bags at the airport but then have no bag drop line at some airports. [ ] Luggage information in Helsinki was never clear and caused us to step out and have to ring the doorbell to get our bags. It took forever for someone to open the door. [ ] Staff are careless about customer comfort. In rovaniemi, we had to board thru the tarmac and the attendants didn't care that people had to wait outdoor on freezing temperatures while the passengers were taking forever to put in their luggage and sit down. [ ] the only positive is that the airplanes are in good condition.
Positiv: "Friendly crew. Departure and arrival earlier than expected. Smooth travel from begining to end."
Negativ: "No food and no entertainment during the flight (which makes it similar to low cost flights)."
Positiv: "Plane was clean, plenty of leg room, cabin crew was friendly, flight was on time."
Negativ: "Checking in was a nightmare of inefficiency. I couldn't use self-check-in for my bad because I was flying to America and for some reason, this meant I had to hand my suitcase to someone rather than just putting it on the conveyor belt. There were about 8 people ahead of me, and yet it took a solid hour of standing in line waiting to get to the counter. How it could possibly have been so insanely slow is beyond me. When it was finally my turn to submit my bag it literally took 30 seconds. And yet I had to wait an hour. Grade: F-"
Positiv: "Freundlicher, korrekter Service. Gute Information zum Stand der Reparatur und zu den Anschlussflügen in Helsinki. Effizientes Boarding. Beim Aussteigen, wurde uns noch mitgeteilt, dass unser Anschlussflug doch wartet."
Negativ: "Defekt am Fahrwerk musste untersucht und anschliessend repariert werden. Dies führte zu etwas mehr als einer Stunde Abgangsverspätung. Anschlussflug in Helsinki wurde zuerst als verpasst angezeigt."
Positiv: "A350, smooth and quiet. Nice plane"
Negativ: "Seats in business are a little crowded and close together. opening to get in and out of seat is minimal"
Positiv: "Pünktlich, Freundlich, organisiert."
Negativ: "Kopfhörerbuchse leider defekt"
Positiv: "Pünktlich, kurzer Transit in HEL"
Positiv: "Pünktlich, kurzer Transit in HEL"
Positiv: "Clean less of the plane"
Negativ: "Entertainment system did not work at all"
Positiv: "Finnair cabin/seats, clean, quiet and comfortable airport in Helsinki"
Negativ: "Not only the first flight got delayed for over 2 hours. I had to re-book the second - connecting - flight because of that. Now it made my layover instead of 1 h 45 m - 5 hours! Then the second flight got delayed!! So instead of 5 hours layover it was over 7 hours!!! Very inconvenient and upsetting experience. The only reason I booked these particular flights is because they were advertized as "the shortest trip" time on your website..."
Positiv: "1. Leg space is bigger then on other companies 2. Crew was really affable 3. Free wine"
Negativ: "Meal was not too hearty. Breakfast in Indian style was too spicy for me. May be I should request a special meal on check-in. And one more thing, Helsinki airport is cold for me. I spent e hours in down vest. Be warned."
Positiv: "am Gate von Eco comfort auf Business upgegradet worden, was kann man da noch bekritteln ..."
Negativ: "Stewardess hat wohl das Gate-Upgrade mitbekommen, auf Hauptgang "vergessen", zwei Gin Tonics geordert, der zweitere bestand nur mehr aus Gin - im Unterschied zur äußerst charmanten, bemühten und zuvorkommenden Stewardess bei meinem Reisepartner im Nebengang"
Positiv: "schnelles Boarding, pünktlicher Start, Blueberry-Juice top"
Negativ: "gibt es auf so ner Kurzstrecke nichts zu meckern, sogar Duty-Free Verkauf - ist man auf der Kurzstrecke gar nicht mehr gewohnt"
Positiv: "Simple morning flight. Not at all full. Left on time, arrived early. Plane was new. Crew was happy. What more does one need? They were beta testing a new WiFi service. Free, but not yet ready for prime time."
Positiv: "Automated scanning for boardin* at gate area. Food in business was exactly what was needed( breakfast) Attentive staff"
Negativ: "The slow boarding once entering the aircraft, it seems the passengers don’t know how to take their seats quickly."
Negativ: "So eingepfercht hab ich noch nie gesessen. Grauenhaft."
Negativ: "Paid economy comfort and did not allowed me to board on group 2 as advertised, eorst entertainment system i’ve seen in a long time, aparently the experience is totally different if you fly A350, Jfk-HEL fly the A330"
Negativ: "Finnair had the worst leg room I've ever had in 50 years of traveling. It was so TIGHT that my knees were pressing up agains the seat in front of me the whole 8 hours of flight, even though I am only 5'7"! I felt really sorry for those passengers who were taller. Finnair also lost my checked in bag and delivered it 36 hours later without providing any compensation. Coming back the flight was delayed due to mechanical reasons, which caused a number of passengers miss connecting flights. This is one of the things that can happen to any airline, but only Finnair failed to provide an agent to take care of the passengers who missed their flights. So, after a 2 hour delay and 7 hours of traveling in the air, the stranded passengers had to find an agent in JFK who would rebook their flights. One of the worst traveling experiences. Will never travel Finnair again!"
Positiv: "Sehr angenehme und bemühte Crew - wirklich super!"
Negativ: "1 Deutscher Film im Angebot"
Negativ: "I hurt my knee. The legroom is too small."
Positiv: "Freundliche FB, aber unerfahren"
Negativ: "2,5 Stunden Verspätung. Crew lässt anytime die Eco Pate in die Business. Nach unseren Jacken durften wir bei Landung suchen. Es gab kein Feuchttuch beim Start. Catering war ungenießbar. Es gab zum Salat Nicoles (ohne Thunfisch und Ei) noch nicht einmal Brot. Meine eigentliche Auswahl war bereits ausverkauft. Nur ein Film auf Deutsch!"
Positiv: "Enge, unbequeme Sitze"
Positiv: "Full Flat Sitze, viel Platz bei Einzelsitzen, freundliches und aufmerksames Personal."
Negativ: "Almost impossible connection with too many custom checks Lost luggage"
Positiv: "problemloser, schneller check in und schnelles boarding. Ruhiger Flug - überpünktlich..."
Positiv: "Airplane was nice."
Negativ: "I paid $90 for economy comfort for my flight and did not get an economy comfort seat. I am very disappointed with Finnair in this. They will not refund my money at the airport and now I need to go through their home office for a refund. It was bad enough not having any extra leg room on a red eye when you are over 6 feet tall but now I have to jump through hoops to get my money back."
Negativ: "Seats. Very uncomfortable"
Positiv: "Flug hatte 30 min Verspätung aber das kann passieren . Pilot hat sehr niedliches deutsch gesprochen und sich sehr nett entschuldigt . Habe daher Zug verpasst nach hamburg und damit Abend Termin . Hatte am service Gate gefragt , ob ich direkt auf den Flug nach hamburg tauschen kann - es gab freie Plätze und ich hätte einen für 622 Euro kaufen können. Warum muss das anders sein als beim Zug ? Fliegen ist wie Zug fahren . Ich habe auch mein Ticket (79 Euro ) mit der dB für eine Bearbeitungsgebühr von 19 Euro tauschen können .. und die was nicht schuld und hat einen schlechten Ruf ;) gerne flexibler werden wenn Flexibilität von Passagieren erwartet wird . Danke , dass sie das ausrichten .. viele Grüße"
Positiv: "the food given under gluten free food was amazing on FinnAir"
Negativ: "Wenig essen wenig platz wenig alkohol an board ...."
Positiv: "I flew in economy. 9+ hours from ORD to HEL. The seat was average size. We were provided with a pillow, blanket and headphones. I did not use the in-flight entertainment, which was on an LCD screen. It was warm, so i didn't use the blanket. I also brought a neck-pillow, which is vital on overnight flights. They served a full dinner shortly after takeoff: I had meat lasagna which wasn't that bad, along with corn, a roll w/ butter, two saltine crackers with decent cheese and a chocolate pudding. Upon waking, I ate the breakfast, which was scrambled eggs and two sausages and a roasted tomato, a roll with butter, fruit cup and orange juice, coffee on the side. All pretty good, it was nice to have a meal before deplaning in Helsinki and waiting to get through passport control. Attendants on this flight were quite friendly. Check-in was run very efficiently. No problems with luggage. All in all, a real bargain price, and I got more than I bargained for."
Negativ: "As for the downside, I had no significant disappointments on the long leg of my flight on Finnair. I hope my return flights will be just as good."
Positiv: "Good imfo"
Positiv: "Great crew and discovered blueberry juice."
Positiv: "Excelente timing and organized to take us to the plane"
Negativ: "No crew speak very good English it was really difficult to understand them"
Positiv: "Boarding was easy"
Negativ: "Drinks were for an additional charge"
Positiv: "Slow boarding no order. Plus delayed flight for no reason"
Positiv: "Liked the Airbus seating on Finnair better than American's Boeing 777 seating."
Positiv: "Flight attendants were courteous and efficient, boarding flowed smoothly."
Negativ: "Customers should be able to indicate their food preference before the flight, i.e. chicken, beef, vegetarian, etc., instead of taking pot luck or paying more than $12 for the option of selecting beforehand. In addition, there is a great deal of waste in giving everyone sugar, salt, creamer, etc. I know it's more efficient for the flight attendants, but I hate to see so much waste."
Negativ: "I never get that flight."
Positiv: "Shortness of flight, very pleasant cabin attendant and fellow passenger. Flight on time and smooth."
Negativ: "Neither of my two checked in pieces of baggage did not arrive, causing major anxiety, hardship and hassle after a long trip."
Positiv: "Flight attendants"
Negativ: "Operated by American. Delayed for 4 hours"
Positiv: "The crew were trying to help and accommodate the bad situation."
Negativ: "Couldn't check in online 24 hours ahead. When called Finnair on the phone, they couldn't check us in, told us we have to check in at counter, by then all good seats were taken and I couldn't sit next to my husband, and this is our honeymoon trip. It's a full flight and All upgrades were booked by then so couldn't even upgrade to business class. Requested a gluten free meal, no crew can figure out it that meal was on board (not in system nor on paper list), so at the end no food for me. I have been dying BA for last five years and this had to be the worst BA flight I have taken, absolute chaos at the check in counter and no organization. One BA counter agent Alexa tried to help but it is just too late. I expected more from BA."
Negativ: "nobody from justfly and kayak even tried to argued that I didn't missed the flight and I was one of hundreds that was in line way before flight time"
The planes are CRAMPED for sure.. you know this. Seems like you're nickeling and diming us to make money... pay to board first? Pay to upgrade, Pay for luggage... this is getting ridiculous. No wonder why people fly Southwest...
The two flight attendants in this flight were quite good, Lindsey and Mike. They did a great job being proactive and engaged appropriately.
The on board crew was awesome, weather delayed flight, missed connecting flight, landed at a diff airport. No sign of baggage. Anywhere.
Once we got on the flight everything was fine. The first leg of our flight was delayed 3 times but American sent us emails allowing us to chose a new itinerary.
Negativ: "Flight was delayed and I missed my connection"
Positiv: "The crew was kind."
Negativ: "The cabin was way too cold and no blankets were provided due to COVID. No blankets I get, but the cabin temperature made 3 1/2 hours seem like 5."
Negativ: "Well my flight was cancelled a few hours before my departure and was sent on another flight to a different city that was 3 hours away"
Positiv: "The crew was nice"
Negativ: "American has been overbooking flights, doesn't respect social distancing, not true that the middle seat is empty, the person next to me coughed frequently, and since it was a FULL flight, I couldn't get another seat!, never again American"
Positiv: "The crew was great and I really appreciate how they accommodated a family with 4 young children"
Positiv: "The plane, Embrair 175 is very comfortable."
Positiv: "Crew was great."
Negativ: "Airplane didn't have any AC and was very old and dirty."
Positiv: "in flight entertainment"
Negativ: "on time flight, crew member courtesy"
Negativ: "Connecting flight was delayed over 3 hours for system failure on original plane, after boarding. Gate was changed 4 times after that."
Negativ: "Horrible service"
Negativ: "kleines Frühstück für umsonst"
Negativ: "Actually having a flight to Charlotte. They delayed flight without much warning... actually, they were delaying/cancelling many flights without warning most of the day. Long story short, I had to get a ride to LaGuardia, to catch a different flight. That flight got delayed when boarding"
Positiv: "Gratis Upgrade in die First bekommen - eigene Suite!"
Negativ: "alles gut"
Positiv: "Included beverage"
Negativ: "No headphones"
Positiv: "We’re able to get a different flight after ours was re-scheduled several times."
Negativ: "Re-scheduling was later then earlier then later, hard to plan’ Comfort: airlines should have a bill of rights for passengers."
Positiv: "Das bordprogramm filmauswahl"
Negativ: "Vom Einchecken übers umsteigen war alles schlecht organisiert Und am Ende ging auch noch mein Gepäck verloren!"
Positiv: "Sehr nette crew"
Negativ: "Crew kannte die Maschine nicht, Fluggäste wurden gratis umgesetzt"
Positiv: "Könnten einen früheren Flug finden"
Negativ: "Leider nicht den gleichen Status bekommen"
Positiv: "Free movie. Informative announcements - friendlier than usual. They told us we were going to take off an hour late due to bad weather in Philly, but it turned out to be only 1/2 hour, and we arrived only 15 minutes late than scheduled. Not so bad."
Negativ: "The seat seemed a little lumpy or uneven. I usually don't purchase meals, but thought I would this time. However, meals weren't available."
Positiv: "Flugzeug war ein altes Flugzeug meine ich. Durchdas es nicht voll besetzt war hatte ich einen 3er Sitz für mich alleine. Super Besatzung wirkte auf mich gestresst ganzes Team war auch untereinander nicht harmonisch. Bordunterhaltung gabs nur in Oben alle 3 bis Sitzreihen einen TV dort konnte man Film schauen, nicht nach eigener Wahl. Sonst konnte man Film und Unterhaltung im Händy oder schauen Tablet herunterladen.Brauchst einfach gute Batterien dafür es gab keine Auflade Möglichkeiten, nur am Airport."
Negativ: "Besatzung Bordunterhaltung Verpflegung,alles mit Kartongschachteln wurdest nicht gefragt was du willst. Wurde einfach wauf den Klapptisch hingeknallt. Alles in allem sonst ruhig sauber und in Ordnung."
Positiv: "Dass ich sogar einen Kaffe und einkleiner Snack in Form von kleienem Keks bekam. Ich war vorbereitet, dass ich nichts erhalte.Hatte etwas zu Essen dabei. Freundliches Personal Bordunterhaltung nur bezahlbar und übers Laptop oder Handy Hatte Auflade Möglichkeiten beim vorder Sitz.."
Positiv: "Free tv which is rare"
Negativ: "I had selected my seats ahead of time and they weren’t kept. Day of I tried to buy a seat and it told me there were tech issues and I had to go to a front desk to check in/purchase. Well all that got me was the very last row, middle seat. No recline and seriously no leg room or breathing room once the person in the row ahead leans back. Crew was not helpful. Not to mention, the security line was outrageously long and I got to my flight just before it left only to find out my seating arrangement and be presented with more disappointment. Took over an hour where I’ve never waited more than 20 minutes in this airport (I fly often). Didn’t have time to go to BR or grab a snack Then my second flight was (again another middle seat) way too warm. The attendants said “there’s nothing we can do”. I was so nauseous and uncomfortable the whole time."
Positiv: "Crew was polite, accommodating and pleasant"
Negativ: "Seats too close together, too narrow, and without individual screens. Seats did not recline enough"
Negativ: "After getting us lined up for boarding we were told to wait due to maintenance."
Positiv: "Speedy check in and security check in. Seats in plane comfortable. Staff wonderful"
Negativ: "Keine Boarungerhaltung, unfreundliches Personal, grosse Verspätungen und enge Sitze. Und dies alles für Interkontinentalraketen Flügen. Alles schlecht bei American Airlines. Nie mehr."
Positiv: "Didn’t care about passengers comfort. Never turned on the AC."
Positiv: "Time was good. Ground service was good. In-flight was okay. Because I love Cathay so much I took a 3 hour longer trip through LA (vs. Seattle) and paid more. But I was berating myself for that. But the flight back was Cathay service at its finest."
Positiv: "Flugpersonal war freundlich und aufmerksam. Leider sind beide Flüge verspätet abgeflogen."
Negativ: "Essen war sehr gut. Sitzplätze gemütlich mit genug Platz für Beine."
Negativ: "Delayed for mechanical."
Positiv: "On time!!!"
Negativ: "Small chairs."
Negativ: "Our departure flight was cancelled several times and we were not given an explanation. Poor communication and customer service."
Positiv: "The staff was great, luckily an pretty empty flight"
Negativ: "The food in coach is a disgrace. It’s terrible a few $$ More and it would actually be have way decent"
Positiv: "Alle waren aufmerksam, auf dem Flug selbst lief alles reibungslos."
Negativ: "Der Flug hatte 30 Minuten Verspätung und mein Koffer traf mit einem eheren Flieger ein und stand deshalb relativ unbeaufsichtigt in der Gegend rum."
Positiv: "Kayak is taking people’s money by selling airlines tickets of airlines that doesn’t exist. I bought tickets for some airlines called Finnair and end up in the worse airline there is “American Airline” this is Not fare for clients, I refuse to flight Americans Airline, if I would have known I would have not buy this flight. 7 hours in a plane with no TV, no free drinks and the worse service. This is a trick, by using Finnair and then end up in AA! There is no Finnair, this is a lie! I am so disappointed about Kayak and won’t use it again. Thank you for rob me and trick me into the worse experience!"
Negativ: "The trick the kayak used to put me in American Airlines, the worse Airline there is."
Negativ: "Im Prinzip war der Flug in time gelandet. Aber dann 40 Minuten gewartet bis ein Gate frei ist. Danach ewiges warten auf den Koffer. Sehr schlechter Service, keine Informationen."
Negativ: "Delays without updates, rude flight staff, lost baggage"
Positiv: "Flug Personal war OK aber für sitze waren sehr klein und musste Arm gegen Arm mit Sitznachbarn fliegen. (Unsere Maschine war ein Boeing 787)."
Negativ: "Essen war auch nicht sehr gut."
Negativ: "Diverted and delayed. Got home 8 hours later then I should have."
Negativ: "Too many delays"
Difficulty in checking in as terminals were different and transiting time was high, to be factored while issuing tickets.
Our flight was canceled, no way to contact the airline, no attempts even to offer option to reschedule flight, I understand it was technical difficulties, but it was no explanation why the flight was canceled. Shouldn't the airline have some back up in case of such emergency. They wouldn't care less.
Boarding in Heathrow was a total mass due to staff shortages. 3 out of 4 flight legs were delayed, some considerably. Food is as always mediocre, but plentiful. IFE is a bit dated with imo poor movie choices. Cabin staff was always amazing, friendly and helpful. Always available and smiling, even through the mask. Very clean lavatories and comfortable seats in business, although the product does feel a little dated by now.
Die neue Business Class von BA ist sehr gut!
Negativ: "Other airlines have complimentary snacks so I was surprised that we had to pay for those."
Positiv: "Our crew on the trip from DC to London was excellent- friendly and efficient. We really enjoyed the whole experience."
Negativ: "The short trip from London to Vienna felt overcrowded with people lugging heavy suitcases on board. Also the fact that you have to purchase even water was a surprise because we were not aware of such a severe policy by BA. Plus our American credit cards were not accepted by the on board cc machine so we spent 2 hour flight without any refreshments"
Positiv: "Boarding ging zügig"
Negativ: "Keine Getränke und Snacks, unfreundliche Crew, Passagiere werden wie Luft behandelt."
Negativ: "Entertaining on board"
Positiv: "Essen, Sitze"
Negativ: "Transit in London war nicht möglich, da Transitvisum erforderlich war."
Positiv: "Crew was the friendliest I have met in a long time."
Negativ: "Connecting in London too stressful and difficult. I came from Catania enroute to JFK and practically killed myself in Gatwick getting from one flight to another. 2 hours not enough to go through this airport, with its stairs, the "mall," lack of info about what to do, passport & sec check again."
Positiv: "Guter Service und kompetente Crew"
Negativ: "Probleme beim Boarding mit meinem Online Ticket. Die Dame am Schalter war sehr gestresst und hat mir daraufhin einfach einen anderen Sitz zugeteilt. Sehr verwirrend!"
Positiv: "Wir waren sogar früher als geplant angekommen! :)"
Positiv: "Freundliches Personal"
Negativ: "Kafee war eine Brühe"
Negativ: "I expected more from business class. I wanted more comfortable seats and better food. The food was blah."
Positiv: "Guze Sitze, nette Crew, gute Ansagen vom Co-Piloten"
Negativ: "Kaffee könnte kostenlos sein."
Negativ: "Sauberkeit der Maschine. Essen war eine breiige Maße"
Positiv: "Die Crew war aufmerksam und nett!"
Negativ: "Besseres Boardprogramm"
Positiv: "2 Stunden Folter in überfüllter Sardinenbüchse mit Gepäck unterm Vordersitz Pünktlich."
Negativ: "2 Stunden Folter in überfüllter Sardinenbüchse mit Gepäck unterm Vordersitz - noch nicht einmal ein Glas Wasser gibt es mehr umsonst!"
Positiv: "Bier war gut"
Negativ: "Zu teuer! Warum muss ich für ein Bier oder Snack zahlen?"
Positiv: "Boarding, geregelte Einstiegsgruppen"
Negativ: "Nicht mal Wasser umsonst an Board"
Positiv: "War alles in Ordnung"
Negativ: "its bad, you don't get anything any more ... nothing to drink or a snak without payment. used to be quite good."
Negativ: "No ability to charge devices during such a long flight"
Positiv: "Gute Unterstützung bei Problemen mit Online-Check-In; sehr genaue Gepäckkontrolle ist absolut in Ordnung; keine Verspätung; freundliches Bordpersonal; Preise für Bordverpflegung günstig - bei diesen günstigern Ticketpreisen ist die seperate Verrechnung absolut gerechtfertigt; werde daher trotz Probleme beim Hinflug wieder mit BA fliegen"
Positiv: "Flug war i.O."
Negativ: "45 Minuten Verspätung beim Abflug und 30 Minuten Verspätung beim Aussteigen nach der Landung da keine Andockstelle in LHR frei war; massive Probleme bei der Verstauung des Handgepäcks."
Positiv: "Perfekt always in time"
Positiv: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Everyone went the same time. Had to come in via a small queue and then wait for the gate to open."
Negativ: "No food or drinks given at all for free. You had to buy even a soft drink. Not a good experience at all. I waited and bought fast food at the airport after the flight."
Positiv: "Vom Rollfeld mit dem Bus zum Terminal finde ich immer nervig. Ansonsten alles glatt gelaufen."
Negativ: "dauerhafte Verspätung bei British Airways und umständlicher Check in für das gepäck"
Negativ: "Flight was delayed. Poor food offerings, no entertainment, minimal leg room, rushed and cramped boarding process."
Positiv: "Das Flugpersonal war ok und der Flug war auch "Just in Time"."
Negativ: "Das Flugzeug bedürfte einer dringenden Generalüberholung. Viele Sachen war ausgeleiert, teilweise sogar zerfetzt. Der USB Connecter hing halber heraus. Eine Ablage im Mittelgang ging nicht mehr zu während des Fluges. Eine Stewardes hat dann mittels eines Schraubenziehers diverse Befestigungen nachjustiert, danach ging die Ablage wieder zu. Meine Frau hatte einen Rollstuhl für Heathrow bestellt, welcher bei der Ankunft nicht da war. Angeblich musste die Maschine ausserplanmässig an einem anderen Ort andocken. Das Handgepäck wird anscheinend nicht richtig geprüft beim Check-In. Mehrere Leute hatten so schwere Koffer dabei, dass sie 2 Leute brauchten um diese in die Ablage zu wuchten. Das Video-Angebot ist sehr dürftig und auch speziell für Deutsche Sprache kaum vorhanden. Auch die Screens sind absolut nicht mehr der technischen Möglichkeiten der Zeit entsprechen."
Negativ: "nach mehreren Stunden ohne Information fiel der Flug aus. Bodenpersonal wurde im Stich gelassen."
Positiv: "Everything was great. 777 has room and its comfy. This flight crew were outstanding!"
Negativ: "Die Sitze in der Buisness Class waren Eco Sitze."
Positiv: "Kaum Platz an den Beinen. 1h Verspätung"
Positiv: "Flug und anschlußflug waren pünktlich ,essen und personal waren gut"
Positiv: "20 min Verspätung beim Abflug"
Negativ: "Was noch?"
Negativ: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELED"
Negativ: "leichte verspätung durch wetter"
Positiv: "Pünktliche Landung, 23kg Grenze bei Handgepäck"
Negativ: "Handgepäck musste aufgegeben werden, Wenig Fußfreiraum"
Positiv: "Personal typisch englisch höflich und zuvorkommend"
Negativ: "Im Gegensatz zu anderen hochpreisigeren Fluglinien müssen Essen und Getränke an Board zusätzlich gekauft werden"
Positiv: "Efficient, on time"
Negativ: "Crew was not friendly and a bare bones plane"
Positiv: "Von Vier Reisenden konnten auf dem Rückflug nur 2 online eingecheckt werden. Das Problem hatten aber viele Mitreisende. Das Personal am Check In Schalter kümmerte sich darum(top!!), sodass die restlichen 2 Personen mitreisen konnten. Andere hatten weniger Glück."
Positiv: "Das Boarding hat gut geklappt und die Verspätung wurde aufgeholt"
Negativ: "Der im Vorraus bei swoodoo reservierte Sitzplatz wurde von British Airways nicht berücksichtigt. Die 70 Euro hab ich umsonst ausgegeben. Mache ich nie wieder. Ich werde nächstes Mal direkt bei der Airline buchen."
Positiv: "Die meisten Crew Mitglieder waren nett"
Negativ: "2-4-2 Sitzreihen"
Positiv: "The flight was okay."
Negativ: "- I had to pay extra for lunch and (alcoholic) drinks. - The pasta was overpriced and tasted like nothing - At the destination we had to wait for 35mins in the plane, before we could get out."
Negativ: "Make sits more comfortable, they are terribly uncomfortable for such a long flight at night."
Negativ: "Cramped seats. No IFE. Chaotic boarding. Luggage missed flight."
Positiv: "Everything was perfect! The crew always ready to serve us!"
Negativ: "Perhaps, update media features! A small corner for children to keep them "busy"."
Negativ: "La comida mediocre"
Positiv: "Crew was nice but only service twice in 8hr flight"
Negativ: "Entertainment app didnt work. Food was low cost AND low quality. Pasta was bland mush breakfast was slice of banana bread."
Positiv: "Guter Service"
Positiv: "It appears that Air Canada is doing the correct thing for passengers who have reserved their seats in advance....after many years of not applying their written policy of making them board after business class/disabled passengers/passengers with young children, they have created Zone 2 boarding which permits passengers with reserved seating to board immediately after them, therefore guaranteeing them overhead bin space. As we all know, a lot of passengers board with much more than one carry-on, which is a plague when boarding."
Negativ: "fragte man sich leider auf diesem Flug. Keine Monitore mit den Infos zum Flug (wo sind wir, wie lange dauert es noch, etc...) Kannte ich so noch nicht. Bordpersonal war sagen wir mal nicht unfreundlich, mehr aber auch nicht. Höflich, zuvorkommend und aufmerksam ist anders. Der Flug ging von Berlin. Es lag also auf der Hand, dass sehr viele Fluggäste deutsch als ihre Muttersprache haben. Das störte die Flugbegleiterin aber nicht. Sie sprach ein so schnelles und undeutliches Englisch, dass sie nicht bis gar nicht zu verstehen war."
Positiv: "The staff were very friendly and courteous. It was comfortable for a 12 hour journey in a plane. What a difference from their regional staff and service."
Negativ: "The food was of course something to be desired."
Negativ: "Took off late."
Negativ: "Overhead bins were tiny."
Positiv: "Generous leg room in coach class"
Negativ: "Sat on the runway for almost an hour both to and from my destination"
Positiv: "The purser was most hospitable, gracious, and accommodating."
Negativ: "Choices for meals and entertainment were somewhat limited."
Positiv: "Alles gut, wie erwartet. Cool, dass Internet im Angebot war."
Negativ: "Klar, die Flieger werden immer enger... aber für die Umwelt ist es schon besser, wenn dafür weniger Flieger starten also beklage ich mich auch nicht so sehr drüber. Am Besten wäre es, wenn es mehr Züge gäbe für solche kurze Strecken."
Negativ: "It was terribly hot. The flight was late by 4 hours. Extremely poor service"
Positiv: "Walking past the Turkish Airlines desk in Dulles and knowing I would NEVER have to interact with these monsters again."
Negativ: "I am an experienced traveler. I've been to 17 countries and have flown over a million miles in both business and coach. My wife encountered a problem in Istanbul that involved an airport transit visa through Canada. I am certain that any other airline we’ve ever flown would’ve assisted us, since it was easily resolved. To Turkish Airlines, this is simply a part of their business model and a chance to make more money. It took about 8 hours of our time at 5 different airport locations to eventually buy new tickets to get back the next day. Our original tickets say: “REISSUE With 200.00 USD penalty. What I didn’t see was the fine print at the bottom: “Turkish Airlines reserves the right to change rules regarding ticket changes and refunds.”. They mean it. As bad as our personal experience was, the real reason we are so appalled is that we were there long enough to see this is the norm for them. In our single day there, we saw at least 100 other travelers going through similar things. The ONLY solution ever offered is to purchase another ticket. We witnessed several people weeping. Many losing control and shouting. Their own personnel were screaming at customers (in a separate office area though, it was all yucks and laughing). These were people of all nationalities. Africans, Asians, Europeans. We were lucky because we had the means to purchase new tickets. Others clearly didn’t. I really don’t know what happened to some of them. One moment was very symbolic of the entire experience. Another vanquished traveler was paying $843 for a new ticket with cash. He handed her $845 but she, of course, had no change. Instead of the $5, he gave her two $1 bills. I had one in my pocket so gave it to her as well. She held my $1 bill up and pointed to the corner which had a very small piece torn off…no ink was missing…and sneered “I can’t accept this. She did this simply because she could. We were powerless. She knew it and reveled in it."
Negativ: "We flew from Toronto to Calgary, the original flight was suppose to be from Toronto to S.F. we were told that the original flight had been cancelled because the flights did not match up, the one coming from Aruba got in to late to make the connecting flight it was a nightmare i will probably never fly Air Canada again nor will i recommend to others"
Negativ: "sitting in the middle seat unless you pay extra"
Negativ: "Delayed without notice and broken sound system for tv screen."
Positiv: "Das Boarding und die Durchführung waren super. Das Personal sprach Französisch. Nicht alles wurde auf Englisch wiederholt. Getränke wurden NUR EIN MAL angeboten. Essen hat Geld gekostet - nicht gut. United Airlines hat zwar auch essen Gegen Geld angeboten, aber hat mindestens 3 Mal von sich auch Getränke angeboten. Also von sich aus."
Negativ: "Kaum Beinfreiheit. Essen nur gehen Geld."
Positiv: "Seats were comfortable and Crew was friendly. The Captain was giving updates when appropriate and even was friendly when the passengers were disembarking. It seems like he really enjoys his job and that made my trip nice. I liked getting the blanket and pillow on every seat. It was very nice not to have to search for them."
Negativ: "Didn't have the Air Canada app so couldn't access WiFi to download app for the entertainment. It might be helpful if the airline would tell you ahead of time so you are prepared. Also, no real description of food offerings. Would be helpful if there was a description beside chicken or vegetarian."
Positiv: "My mother's attendants and the flight crew were very friendly and courteous to her."
Negativ: "No information or communication about bringing your own food or snacks on board. No food, snacks,entertainment or immigration forms were available. There was some food for purchase but if you didn't have a credit or debit card then you couldn't buy it. My mother was in a wheelchair waiting to board in Toronto and would have bought food to either eat there or carry on the plane but another passenger was severely reprimanded for getting out of her wheelchair and going to the bathroom, so my mother was intimidated to stay seated and not go to the bathroom nor ask any questions as to if she could go and buy some food or snack to eat while she was waiting. Only juices were served. She was flying since 11 am and arrived at 9:30 pm without any food. The website as well as all emails should inform about luggage weight as well as food and entertainment. On a layover the attendants should be more cooperative with disabled passengers and allow them to use the bathroom as well as to go and buy food."
Positiv: "Well organized and stress-free flow of people/services."
Positiv: "Great crew, great food, seat was amazing."
Negativ: "Nice flight. A bit of delay, otherwise everything was fine as always :)"
Positiv: "Not much."
Negativ: "They only had two people at the counter to check in passengers for two flights that took off fifteen minutes apart. they closed the ticketing/ checkin counter downstairs an hour before the flight was scheduled to take off. the same people moved up stairs to work the counter at the gate. it took us an hour and ten minutes to get check our bags. Once we got to our destination, only one of two bags was with us. the airline won't even deliver the missing bag to us. they will only get it to the destination airport if they can find it."
Positiv: "there was an incident before take off with a man and woman arguing on the plane. she seemed drunk and he ended up punching her in the head. the crew called security and they were asked to leave. never saw them again. excellent handling by Air flight attendants and security"
Negativ: "no access to news channels on tv"
Positiv: "Dieser kurze Flug verlief schnell und komfortabel. Es gab Internetzugang am Board, der gut funktionierte."
Negativ: "1 hour 35min delay for a 1 hour 40 minute flight!!"
Positiv: "The crew tried to be nice."
Negativ: "Boarding was completely disorganized. The flight was meant to depart at 3:30, we didn't start boarding until 4 and we didn't take off until 6. The flight was too full and the plane too heavy so extra fuel needed to get be left behind, which meant we had to land in Jamaica refuel and then head to Toronto. Arrival time was meant to Be 10:30pm and we arrived around 1:30am."
Negativ: "My flight was canceled. And i have to spent about 9hours at airport."
Positiv: "the seat beside me was open"
Negativ: "they made us rush through customs while yellig at us nd being very condescending then we waited an hour to board because the airport door wouldn't open for the crew"
Positiv: "der sessel ist wie ein altes economy-sessel, das essen ist schöner angerichtet, und es gibt mehr platz"
Negativ: "leider ist die standard-economy-klasse viel enger geworden"
Positiv: "I needed a wheelchair and they were very friendly and helpful"
Positiv: "The entertainment system"
Negativ: "No food!!"
Positiv: "Drop off at the counter was fast and easy on the upper level departure entrance. From my drop off at 9:00 am, I made it thru baggage check-in, passing thru passport control, passing thru security and into the gate duty free area in 25 mins! Impressive experience."
Negativ: "With an hour delay out of Paris due to waiting for missing aircraft flight documents to be completed and delivered to the airplane on the holding ramp, we ended up arriving in Toronto an hour late. With only an original connection time of 90 minutes, it was not possible for me to make it thru Canadian and US customs to the connection gate. I was to learn that no other connection to a Kansas City was available until much later in the afternoon / early evening. As a result, I ended up arriving in Kansas City 6 (six) hours later than originally scheduled, three quarters of the time it took to travel from Paris to Toronto. To say the least , I was not at all thrilled having lost that time."
Negativ: "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."
Negativ: "Flight was late taking off"
Positiv: "Again, loved the seat."
Negativ: "One of the stewardess was a little smug. She caught herself and tired to back up and be nice, but she was definately a little agressive initially. Sorry, I have been busy, I cant recall what she specifically looked like. I think she had carmel skin, dark hair and was around 30. Again, she did adjust herself, but I wanted to share this as the only real issue I noted for the trip."
Positiv: "nice screen, but need to bring your own earplugs or pay to get a pair. toilet was clean, seat was quite comfortable for economy class"
Negativ: "the reading light from next seat passenger was disturbing me a lot, spotting on my head & arm and it was really warm.. no room to store bag below front seat"
Positiv: "The new flight was direct and with Lufthansa to my final destination."
Negativ: "Air Canada overbooked their Frankfurt to Montreal flight, and they did bot have any seats for me on that plane although I booked 3 months in advance."
Positiv: "Drinks were provided."
Negativ: "Not even snacks were provided on the 2 hour flight."
Positiv: "Clean, prompt, attentive staff"
Positiv: "Onboard service staff were very good."
Negativ: "Flight was one and a half hours late leaving."
Positiv: "Crew was fairly friendly and a little hands off. Food was the best I've had flying abroad thus far. Seats were okay. Was in economy so I can't expect too much but I would love if there was a little more room especially for people stuck in middle seats. Seats were fairly comfortable. There was a lot more leg room than I have before which made the 10+hr flight better!"
Negativ: "Boarding didn't go well for me as I almost missed my flight due to delays (but that didn't make me feel upset towards Air Canada, just bad circumstances that I had to be honest about). Crew was fairly friendly - a little hands off (which is good) but I wasn't wowed by them. Wasn't a lot of movie options. I realize you can't get a TON but a few more current movies would have been nice."
Positiv: "787 is super comfortable and quiet aircraft. Decent service."
Negativ: "Lack of coffee while seat-belt sign turned on - there wasn't even any significant bumping in the aircraft - certainly could have served coffee without issue. I know this is a "safety policy" but sometimes we should objectively leave lawyers out of the equation in terms of service provided."
Negativ: "When you roll up on clerk at the check-in counter and she's already eyeing your carry-on bag you know you're gonna have a problem. My bag was purchased a month ago and I made sure it met all major airline specs so when she immediately told me I'd have to check it, I told her it would fit no problem in her little mold. She insisted that it would not and I'd have to PAY to check it. I picked it up and easily popped it into the mould but my zipper snagged on the way in and she said that I was not allowed to "force" it in. I then easily lifted it in and out twice without the zipper snagging. Then she insisted that I weigh it. 22lbs is not much at all so I figured I might get caught here but to my surprise I was only at 23lbs. So she immediately said I would have to pay because I was over weight.... BY 1 LB! So I opened my bag and took out bag of carrots and put it back on the scale. She was so pissed that she couldn't charge me anything that she never made eye contact for the rest of the process. She then said that because I had my cat with me I could not sit in the row I had booked because it was an exit row. I insisted that it was not an exit row as I had just flown on the plane four days earlier with my cat in the same seat. She refused and moved me to a row with less leg room despite my having paid for the upgraded seat (I'm 6'4"). Upon boarding, I confirmed with the flight attendant that my original row was NOT an exit row. It was behind the exit row and there are no restrictions for that. One terrible staff member is all it takes to ruin a flight. Air Canada Rouge also happens to be a soda can with wings so that doesn't help."
Positiv: "The space I had for my feet and legs"
Negativ: "The lights that had to stay on during a red eye flight"
nul I am satisfied because Jewish people were very noisy during the flight I AM NOT RACIST but they were extremely noisy and what impressed me was that the food served them at the beginning and the rest 1 hour late. The biggest problem was during the trip I was very scared the plane started shaking tremendously for a long time, this terrifies me a lot and I do not have to choose with this and I do not have to recommend it to anyone
Positiv: "The was helpful and friendly and was able to take care of problems."
Negativ: "Notifying me when a flight was being canceled before getting to the airport not where. You are supposed to be boarding the plane."
Positiv: "I like that I was finally able to come home"
Negativ: "The United Airlines reps could have shown some empathy to the passengers who were delayed. The arline knew we had connecting flights and could've alerted the other flight that we were there and to wait on us. The connecting flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50. I arrived at the gate at 9:49 only to find that the flight had not only boarded but had already left. The reps at the counter showed no level of empathy and acted put out when asked to provide transportation to the reassigned gate. Lastly, the flight could've offered something more than a $10 food voucher, especially since the majority of the food in the airport is greater than $10."
Positiv: "Best Airline."
Negativ: "Nothing, flights are always great in my experience with United."
Positiv: "Sehr positiv dass man der Person neben mir einen freien Platz anbot und wir dadurch mehr Platz hatten. Sitzplatz hatte ausreichend Platz und das Unterhaltungsprogramm war sehr gut."
Negativ: "Frühstück hätte besser sein können"
Negativ: "Plugs would be nice. Food isn’t great and drinks are more expensive than other airlines"
Positiv: "business class seats at the time of the sleep was very uneven and uncomfortable, foods and coffees were cold."
Negativ: "Everythings ........"
Negativ: "Nothing. Everything was great"
Positiv: "We were early. We sat together"
Negativ: "Too strict on check in baggage weight"
Negativ: "Seats very uncomfortable Planes tatty Toilets very dirty"
Negativ: "bei einem 45 min Flug kann man nicht viel anders machen"
Positiv: "eingentlich war gar nichts wirklich gut. sondern max mässig"
Negativ: "Es gibt 2x auf einem über 11 Stunden non-stop Flug was zum essen:Nach dem Start und einmal 1,5 Stunden vor der Landung. 9 Std. nichts. Wenn dann eine Stewardess helfen will mit einem kleinen Snack aber von einem Kollegin gebremst wird, dann finde ich das unverschämt!! "Wir machen keine Ausnahmen!""
Positiv: "Crew was great"
Negativ: "Airbus seats comfortable but not the same on the Boeing 747"
Positiv: "Personal freundlich und in dem Fall war der Punkt 20 Minuten überpünktlich"
Negativ: "Wie üblich auf diesen kurzen Flügen keine Bordunterhaltung. Relativ wenig Sitzabstand wie sonst aber auch üblich (bei knappe 1,90m) wenn kein spezieller Sitz mehr frei ist."
Negativ: "Over booked flight"
Positiv: "Smaller plane was awesome. Flight service great. Checkin easy."
Negativ: "We are okay with seat area but would ask that united freeze seat backs. The inconsiderate bumpkins in front of us put seat back and then leaned forward the whole flight. we could not even put our tray table all the way down. Coke spilled all over us in turbulence as liose tabke bounced significantly more than if set in place. Give people rude, freeze saet so cant recline or remove tray tables so we dont hurt ourselves due to rude people."
Positiv: "Leider verspätet"
Negativ: "Entertainment während des Fluges nur gegen Aufpreis mittels Kreditkartenzahlung möglich"
Negativ: "- knapp unter 6 Std Flugzeit und nur ein Mini-sackerl bretzen zum Essen - für jedes Gepäckstück wird kassiert"
Positiv: "Very pleasant staff food was pretty good"
Negativ: "No complaints"
Positiv: "Flug hat Minimumkriterien erfuellt. Puenklichkeit und Sicherheit. Getraenke wurden offeriert."
Negativ: "Ich bin klein und fand es beengend. Das überraschendste war aber das komplett fehlende Unterhaltungsprogramm. Nicht mal ein gemeinschaftlicher Monitor. Dies bei einem 4h Flug. Info über vorhandene Service( entertainment und food ) im Flug wäre wünschenswert."
Positiv: "Fast boarding"
Negativ: "Plane was a little drafty."
Positiv: "Business Class entsprach voll den Erwartungen, nur das erste Mal war der Flug rückwärts"
Positiv: "Prinzipiell ok aber nicht First Class Standard, wie gebucht"
Positiv: "On time"
Negativ: "The flight attendants were rude, impatient and generally seemed unhappy to be working on this particular flight."
Positiv: "Fast and friendly staff from check in to landing. Southern folk don’t rush you and actually listen to consumers concerns."
Negativ: "None...nice, short flight"
Positiv: "Check in, arrive ahead of schedule"
Negativ: "No entertiment, no snack only little bag of pretzels"
Negativ: "We were delayed by more than 6 hours."
Positiv: "Flights on time"
Negativ: "Luggage arrived 2 hours late on separate flight"
Positiv: "Siehe Bewertung in den Kategorien. Essen ok, Boarding entspannt und ein guter Flug für den Preis (sehr günstig)"
Negativ: "Nicht sehr viel Platz, zu wenige Getränke über den Flugzeitraum, Personal nur mäßig freundlich, kein Boardentertainment am Platz nur über zentrale Lautsprecher aller 4-5 Reihen (Flug durchgeführt von United)"
Positiv: "The crew was attentive and professional"
Negativ: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Positiv: "I'm very upset that an earthquake in our destination wasn't enough to cancel! Thank goodness I didn't end up going Friday because they had another earthquake Saturday!"
Negativ: "The fact that the airline wouldn't refund my money despite a natural disaster in the area we were flying to!"
Positiv: "Guter Komfort und gute Beinfreiheit zu den Vordersitzen so dass man auch nach einem Langstreckenflug von München nach San Francisco entspannt ankommt."
Negativ: "... und alles kostet extra: Bordunterhaltung, Essen, Bier."
Positiv: "First and foremost, our flight arrived 25 minutes early! Nuff said!"
Negativ: "Super late pilots/airplane. The time wasn't followed as it was always DELAYED!"
Positiv: "Wir waren sehr knapp dran. Wir erreichten den Flieger nur, weil uns Airline Angestellte geholfen haben und wir durch den Flughafen gespurtet sind."
Positiv: "My experience with Air Canada was all around pleasant. I would definitely fly with them again. Any negative aspect during my travels was due to their partner United Airlines."
Negativ: "If flying within the States we used United Airlines; a partner of Air Canada. The flight itinerary changed numerous times before our departure, including two days before we left. The change added an additional layover, and put us at our destination nearly 6 hours later than out original booking. This meant we lost a decent portion of the first day of our honeymoon. However, we were forced to stay an extra day when our return flight was cancelled. After spending 8 hours in the airport we were informed that our Monday flight was cancelled, and the next available flight would not be until Wednesday! United Airlines let us down on the way to our destination and on our trip home. Air Canada was great, but I dread having to use their partner United Airlines."
Positiv: "We got there safely with our stuff."
Negativ: "The stupid led by the unwilling."
Positiv: "Boarding process did not take long"
Negativ: "Rough landing"
Positiv: "I enjoyed the flight attendant being so understanding about having to check bags and even gave us free drinks!"
Negativ: "Didn't like the seats being so close I could feel a baby kicking the back of my seat."
Positiv: "Personal war sehr nett, das Boarding ging zügig vonstatten, Sitze gemütlich(für Kurzstreckenflug)"
Negativ: "Flug hatte 1 h Verspätung, keine Auswahl beim angebotenen Snack"
Positiv: "Boarding sehr zügig, Carry-on wurde unkompliziert in Frachtraum verbracht da sehr kleines Flugzeug"
Negativ: "Sitze eher sparsam bemessen, keine Auswahl bei Snack"
Negativ: "my daughter and I didn't even have seats together...and the plane was not full. We spent $69 and $77 to get seats together and the seat backs didn't work, no TV screens, and my expensive purse was soaking wet when I retrieved it from under the seat. So gross. And of course the food was gross...but that's to be expected, I guess."
Negativ: "It was an hour late."
Negativ: "Our flight was delayed so we were offered to get on an "earlier" flight. The "earlier" flight never left until 40 minutes AFTER our originally scheduled flight."
