Ich hatte eigentlich das Niveau eines Linienflugs erwartet. Bekommen habe ich aber Billigflieger- Niveau. Das man für die Bordverpflegung zahlen muss, ist schon schräg. Das Stille Wasser und die 20g Schokoladentafel kann sich Lufthansa dann auch noch sparen, um den Gewinn richtig zu maximieren😡. Da kann man auch gleich mit Ryanair, easyJet oder sonst einem Billigflieger reisen.
Leider wurde unser Gepäck vom Mumbai Flug nicht auf den Basel Flug gebracht, so dass wir ohne Gepäck in Basel ankamen. Auch wurde diese Information wohl erst spät nach Basel gebracht,da wir dort ewig auf unser Gepäck gewartet haben bis wir informiert wurden. Das trübt den ansonsten sehr guten Flug.
Wie beim Hinflug auch beim Rückflug Verspätung von fast einer Stunde. Auf Nachfrage zunächst keine Informationen und unfreundliche Antworten. 50 Minuten im Flieger warten müssen bevor der Start erfolgte. Erst auf Nachfrage gab es zur Überbrückung ein Wasser. Schade, dass man als Gast immer darauf Selbstverständlichkeiten aufmerksam machen muss. Dabei möchte LH angeblich immer ein Wohlgefühl an Board vermitteln. Das behaupten sie zumindest immer in der Durchsage. Enttäuschend.
Auf die Frage in der Business Class, ob es ein bisschen wärmer gemacht werden könnte, da es von unten kalt zieht, nur die lapidare Antwort, das käme wahrscheinlich von der Aussentür und die Temperatur wurde nicht höher gestellt. Also ein Flugzeug, wo es durch die Tür zieht. Na, ja, schlimmer geht's eigentlich kaum noch.
Denied boarding at the document check line. In line with all the other passengers but were the only ones denies boarding. We’re told the gate had closed.
Kniefreiheit nicht gegeben
Negativ: "Bereitstellung von Einreiseformulare Mexiko (Nutung der Flugzeit für das Ausfüllen)"
Positiv: "nicht angetreten"
Negativ: "verfallen lassen - nach Köln war es billiger als nach FRA"
Negativ: "unkkomfortable C Class"
Positiv: "Desinfektionstuch an Board erhalten."
Negativ: "Freundlichkeit einzelner Crew-Mitgliwder."
Positiv: "Die Crew beim Boarding wie immer akkurat und freundlich. Leider gab es in der Eco nur ein Glas Wasser, was diesmal aber nicht kundgetan wurde (oder ich habe geschlafen und hab das nicht gehört). Danach war aber auch keine Motivation mehr vorhanden die ausgegeben Plastikbecher anzusammeln. Man sollte die einfach im Netz des Vordersitzes reinstecken. Naja ...."
Positiv: "The crew was great."
Negativ: "Better seats,better food."
Positiv: "There were so many refreshments and meals for just a 6.5 hour flight. The movie selection was great."
Negativ: "Some of the attendants could have been friendlier, but overall they were very available and helpful."
Negativ: "Statt Streichung des letzten Fluges am Freitagabend eine Durchführung des selbigen"
Positiv: "Da aufgrund der gewitterigen Wetterlage, viele diesen Anschlussflug nicht mehr erreicht haben war das Flugzeug nicht voll besetzt, weswegen ich gleich drei Sitze für mich allein hatte... für einen Langstreckenflug ist das natürlich sehr komfortabel! Besatzung sehr nett."
Negativ: "Das Wetter.... wie oben bereits angedeutet recht gewittrig, war ein recht turbulenter Flug. Man musste sich die ersten Zwei Stunden oftmals mit beiden Armen festhalten um auf dem Sitz zu bleiben..."
Positiv: "Crew war informativ bezogen auf Verspätung. Bremsen in Bremen sehr fragwürdig. Kein Grund in Bremen so stark zu bremsen."
Negativ: "Landung mit Stop übermässig stark gebremst. Bin jahrelang selbst in Bremen gelandet mit viel grösserem Flugzeug. Nie Problem gehabt. Mopedflieger von Cityline brauch so eine Bremsung nicht total unkomfortabel für die Pax"
Negativ: "Schlechtestes Bordessen seit Jahren. Alles vollkommen geschmacklos. Chicken Curry richtig schlecht, wie es gut geht zeigt United. Ein vertrocknetes Brötchen als Beilage dass eigentlich niemandem mehr angeboten werden kann."
Positiv: "The flight on time. Good crew. Good service."
Negativ: "Getränkeauswahl sehr klein"
Negativ: "Internetverbindung war vergleichsweise langsam"
Negativ: "My only suggestion would be to include instructions on how to control the entertainment center and find things such as the headphones in the armrest."
Positiv: "Sehr freundliche und zuvorkommende Crew"
Positiv: "Noch nie so ein chaotisches Boarding in MUC gehabt. Vier Gate Agents und trotzdem"
Positiv: "Movie selection, drink selection, crew was awesome."
Negativ: "Seats are not the most comfortable."
Positiv: "Soweit ok für die kurze Strecke"
Positiv: "Maschine war ganz leer, Crew super nett Frühstück in MUC Lounge gut"
Negativ: "LH typisch keinen Komfort, Internet zum bezahlen, Catering mies"
Positiv: "nette crew"
Negativ: "obwohl wir über 5 stunden im Flieger waren, war es ein Kurzstreckenflieger ohne jeden Komfort und wir bezahlten aber Business Class Preise! Da lobe ich mir British Airways!"
Positiv: "Der Flug war pünktlich und wir hatten Essen und Trinken an Bord."
Negativ: "Es war etwas kalt an Bord und das Flugzeug ziemlich alt und laut."
Negativ: "Unpünktlich, Frankfurt mega unfreundlich Security Check!!!"
Positiv: "Personal an Bord war trotz Verspätung aufmerksam- der Pilot liess sich sogar zu ein paar spassigen Bemerkungen hinreissen."
Negativ: "Der Flug ging 1 Stunde verspätet, weil die Maschine schon verspätet aus München kam. Am Gate gab es zunächst überhaupt keine Info/keine Ansage. Über die Verzögerung wurden die Gäste erst durch eine SMS informiert. Es dauerte dann ca. 30 Minuten bis die Dame am Gate sich eine erste kurze Ansage abgerungen hat. Das Boarding dauert schließlich auch unendlich lange/ Maschine war komplett ausgebucht. Besser wäre gewesen, von hinten nach vorne die Maschine zu füllen, nicht kreuz und quer durcheinander, bis jeder dann sein Gepäck verstaut hat - das kostete zusätzlich Zeit."
Positiv: "A320neo. Gut gelauntes Bordpersonal trotz verzögerter Abreise und später Ankunft"
Negativ: "Kommunikation der Verspätung am Flughafen. Recht plötzlicher Gatewechsel trotz absehbarer Verspätung. Zu wenig Vorfeldpersonal für zeitgerechte Verladung"
Negativ: "Das Sicherheitspersonal am Flughafen war extrem unfreundlich und provozierend, und äußerst familienunfreundlich."
Positiv: "Alles war sehr gut. Besatzung war sehr freundlich und der Flug verlief komplett problemlos und pünktlich."
Negativ: "Natürlich war nicht viel Verpflegung an Bord, aber für einen Kurzstreckenflug und zu diesem Preis ist das auch absolut in Ordnung."
Positiv: "Es war nett"
Negativ: "Das Essen war nicht gut"
Positiv: "Pünktlich gestartet und alles in allem ganz okay"
Negativ: "Super altes Flugzeug"
Positiv: "Das Personal war sehr zuvorkommend jung und wirklich nett! Alle Ansagen im Flugzeug waren ausführlicher und netter als für gewöhnlich"
Negativ: "Das Essen war ok."
Positiv: "Staff tried hard to serve food"
Negativ: "Very stinky person sitting in front of me and because there is no air jets to regulate had to breath 9 hours of stinky armpits Stayed 20 min on the plane or more waiting until gate would open."
Positiv: "Overall good, except one of the crew members"
Negativ: "Crew very rude, one of them. I fly LH quite often, usually nice but this one was exception. Wanted to memorize the name, but forgot :)"
Positiv: "Sehr pünktlich, sauber, freundliches Personal."
Positiv: "Excellent overall. Much communication from the cockpit to explain weather delay etc. two meals transAtlantic. Genuinely friendly crew. Wine with economy meals a pleasant surprise, Electronic check-n and Gaye change alerts very smooth Lufthansa will be my first choice next time I fly."
Negativ: "You are asking me about a flight that we did not take. We called to cancel it."
Positiv: "Entertainment system was superior and flight crew very nice. Plenty of drinks and food available."
Negativ: "Seats and food are typical for airline economy class"
Positiv: "I boarded despite being very late from connection"
Negativ: "Very stressful to make the late connection. Lost bags due to short connection expected but not well enabled. No communication until I initiated call following day despite submitting lost baggage form. Seats are too close together - when reclined in front I could not use my laptop as not enough space to open my screen. Was able to move to a different seat to ok."
Positiv: "Excellent crew.. very attentive to everyone’s needs. Great movie screens ..large seats .. clean plane .. overall great 8 hour flight"
Positiv: "entertainment options were great"
Negativ: "rushed from connecting flight and then had to go through passport security check point"
Positiv: "Excellent crew"
Negativ: "Seat padding is too thin, i could feel every movement from the passenger behind me, even cell phone vibration in the back seat pocket. My entertainment system was not working, but the attendant was quick to help."
Positiv: "Flugpersonal war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Boarding ging auch sehr schnell."
Negativ: "Auf unserem Langstreckenflug bekamen wir zwei Mahlzeiten. Leider war bei beiden Malen ein Gericht aus, sodass ich immer das bekam, für das ich mich nicht entschieden hätte... Cola war nach ca 1h komplett aus"
Positiv: "The crew was great. There was a nice amount of personal space. The movie and music selection was quite good. The food was decent for flight food."
Positiv: "Good variety of on-board entertainment"
Negativ: "We were in last row of our section of the plane and space was very cramped, especially for my 6'1" husband. It was not a very physically comfortable flight."
Es gab einen Snack und gute Getränke. Besser Service als bei manch anderer Airline
A heads up on filling in an e-ticket prior to flight departure would have been helpful.
being a flight attendant and using spécial fare I apreciate being treated equally to the other pax, the fact that the crew, when I informed them of my status, went to check if I had a good seat ( no one beside me, to be able to get good rest.) Those are important gestures towards the person. I look to more flights with KLM
Baggage drop-off könnte schneller sein, die FlugbegleiterInnen könnten freundlicher sein
Negativ: "Friendlier crews"
Positiv: "The seats were so comfortable"
Negativ: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Negativ: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"
Positiv: "Crew good and seat OK but not exceptional for business class"
Negativ: "Food was average - main course could have been better. Range of movies ok but not great"
Positiv: "Pleasant crew. Appropriate and efficiently served snack."
Negativ: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."
Negativ: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"
Positiv: "the crew was wonderful, we got a nice Wrap and water, wine or coffee for free, not all airlines serve it anymore, we were on time and I got whatsapp message with updates of the flight"
Negativ: "Flight got cancelled"
Positiv: "The crew was great. The soecial meal request was hadled well despite oversight."
Negativ: "Soecial meal request was made in advance but overlooked. Did not mind it so much as eating less is not a bad idea! To err is human."
Negativ: "Das ich jetzt noch nicht in nRennes bin sondern in Amsterdam hängen geblieben bin."
Positiv: "Top sympathische Crew"
Positiv: "Die Crew war nett."
Negativ: "Die Kabinenklimatisierung hat man nicht in den Griff gekriegt. In dem Bereich wo wir saßen war es sehr kalt und zügig, so dass wir und trotz mehrerer Decken erkältet haben. In anderen Bereichen haben sich die Gäste über zu hohe Temperaturen beschwert."
Negativ: "Die Lauf Wege sind zu lang aus Amsterdam."
Positiv: "Very friendly crew and on time with no problems."
Negativ: "1. In Flight Entertainment 2. Controlled In Flight Temperature"
Positiv: "Freundliche und aufmerksame Crew."
Negativ: "Sitze in der Business Class etwas durchgesessen."
Positiv: "Friendly crew"
Negativ: "KLM lost one piece of my luggage"
Positiv: "Service, entertainment and comfort - all very good. Really enjoyed the extra legroom in comparison with other airlines."
Negativ: "Just the AC was way too cold and they are not providing any blankets nor pillows"
Negativ: "KLM was not prepared to get wheel chair passenger off plane. Cost me delay of 1 hour. I will never fly KLM again."
Positiv: "The service crew was very nice"
Negativ: "Entertainment was broken so no movies etc. No pillows and no blankets because they ran out. Freaking cold during the flight. No vegetarian meal nor snacks."
Negativ: "Es war gute service im Flug. Ich fliege wieder mit KLM."
Negativ: "Stornieren des Flugs. Keiner fühlt sich zuständig und der Kunde wird mit Arbeit und Kosten allein gelassen"
Positiv: "Crew was ok."
Negativ: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."
Positiv: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Negativ: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Negativ: "It was a connection flight from Manchester via AMS to HAJ. Transfer time in Amsterdam (offered by KLM) just 1 hr - so my baggage hasn't arrived in HAJ, at least one day delay! At airport HAJ I've heard that's usual that baggage can't arrive in one our! So I didn't understand why this flight was offered by KLM!"
Positiv: "was a standard flight, in a standard quality - nothing bad"
Positiv: "Food provided, staff kind"
Negativ: "Was several hours delayed and check in took 45 minutes because they somehow lost my reservation."
Negativ: "alles gut"
Positiv: "pünktlicher Flug Sehr nettes Personal Gute Verpflegung"
Positiv: "Unterhaltungsprogramm guter Service"
Negativ: "schon besser im Flieger gegessen"
Positiv: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Negativ: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Positiv: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
Negativ: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"
Positiv: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Negativ: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Positiv: "Staff very pleasant"
Negativ: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"
Positiv: "Das Flugpersonal war freundlich, sehr aufmerksam und fürsorglich. Es gab genug zu trinken und gute Auswahl. Über eine Kleinigkeit zu essen freute ich mich auch sehr. Es war ein entspannter, angenehmer Flug. Danke vielmals."
Negativ: "Dass der Flug sich verspätet hat, hat mich persönlich nicht sehr gestört. Wenn aber jemand danach weiter fahren muss, oder einen Termin deshalb verpasst, könnte etwas nervig sein."
Positiv: "Board-Crew war sehr nett und das Essen + Getränke war natürlich auch sehr gut."
Negativ: "Leider muss man sagen dass das Boarding zu lange gedauert hat und manche Probleme mit dem Anschlussflug hatten. Noch dazu kummt dass mindestens 5 oder 6 Personen ihren Koffer nicht mehr bekommen haben unteranderem auch eine Freundin von mir was natürlich sehr ärgerlich ist."
Positiv: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Positiv: "Good services!"
A really excellent and comfortable experience. No wifi in my section of business class though - would have made it perfect.
Habe flug verpasst, Anschluss von Brest war zu knapp (30') mit 10' Verspätung v Start
Good cabin crew, Wi-Fi availability al through my trip.
Negativ: "The food was not as usual."
Positiv: "Easy boarding, entertainment"
Negativ: "Crew was not very friendly on bot departure and return flights. Will make me reconsider Air France in the future."
Positiv: "I like the crew and their service, the food was amazing speacially the vanilla cheese cake desert was on point, loved it. I loved the “my flight “interaction on the screen and the different view of the plane, cockpit view, left, right etc.. amazing feature."
Negativ: "The seat could have been much better as far as reclining and space. Overall I loved the flight."
Positiv: "Nette Crew, Privatsphäre und leckeres Catering"
Negativ: "Nur süße Snacks, nichts salziges"
Positiv: "Freundlichkeit des Personals"
Negativ: "Die Bestuhlung der Business Class in der Boeing 777 ist unbequem. Es gibt wenig Ablagemöglichkeiten. Die Anordnung ist 2-3-2, und die Fensterplätze und der mittlere Sitz hat keinen Zugang zum Gang. Man muss bei diesen Sitzen die Nachbarn belästigen. Finde ich gelinde gesagt suboptimal."
Negativ: "I dint like the way you guys sold me the tickets with only one bag to check in with when I went to the airport I’ve got to pay 58 pounds extra I was not happy with you guys so next time you have to tell your customers before they buy the tickets that’ it’s one bag check"
Positiv: "Polite and friendly service"
Negativ: "Not necessary to buy a business class ticket, as all the new planes have standard economy seats in the front as well."
Positiv: "Crew memebers"
Positiv: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Negativ: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Positiv: "Seats are comfortable on Business Class. Service is good"
Negativ: "Constant delays specially from CDG! Poor cabin service specially on this flight."
Positiv: "Mit einer Ausnahme war die Crew wenig motiviert"
Negativ: "Crew forced me to change my upgraded comfort seat to accommodate a 12 year old who they knew was going to be airsick. So I spent the first half of the flight next to a vomiting girl. Only after I asked to file a complaint, they allowed me one of two empty seats in premium. Terrible customer service."
Negativ: "Sehr laut! Eng gestuhlt"
Negativ: "Excelente aerolínea"
Negativ: "Placed in last row w/ non-reclining seats, even though bought tix 7 months early. We travel w/ only carry-on bags. AF allows 35 kg each but only 12 kg in cabin. I asked, online, twice, if we could have a couple of extra kg for hand pieces. Rec’d only auto. luggage policy. Forced to check both bags."
Positiv: "great food, entertainment and seat comfort"
Positiv: "Good food and crew"
Negativ: "Plane was old and seats were super tiny. Even an average guy would be uncomfortable in it. Can’t sit in one spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."
Negativ: "4 Stunden Wartezeit am Flughafen leider zu lang:("
Positiv: "Great seat. Comfortable. Quick boarding."
Negativ: "Asked flight attendant to wake me for breakfast....forgot. Long wait for bathroom,"
Positiv: "Fantastic Crew!"
Negativ: "Seats are comfortable but tight."
Negativ: "My entertainment device did not work the entire flight."
Negativ: "Flug kommt Mitten in der Nacht in Paris an. Da die Verbindung zum Anschlussgate noch geschlossen war, mussten wir formal nach Frankreich einreisen um zum Gate nach München zu kommen. Dort darf man sich im ungeheiztem Gate noch mindestens 2 Stunden die Zeit vetreiben."
Positiv: "Die Crew war nett"
Negativ: "Sitze waren sehr verschlissen, bzw. funtionierten teilweise nicht. Bordunterhaltung war nur auf einem Monitor möglich der andere Monitor funktionierte nicht."
Positiv: "Crew was friendly and attentive but hard to understand"
Negativ: "Airport experience was inefficient. Long unattractive walk, boarding was tedious: the automatic check-in was not helpful and required so many more staff. Random security check was redundant and chaotic."
Positiv: "The crew was very gentile."
Negativ: "No enterteinment on the plane."
Positiv: "Nette Besatzung, Kleiigjeit zum Essen und Trinken"
Negativ: "Sehr wenig Platz, wenig zum Essen"
Positiv: "I did like Flying with Delta and Air France but not with Ukrainian airlines (when booking , it should tell you what airlines will be used , to make a better selection )"
Negativ: "When I purchased my flight ticket , I purchased with a checked bag (23 kg /50 #) how ever ( who will fly to Ukraine with a 10kg suitcase) I booked for a KLM flight , they used (partener airlines ) when I arrived to LA I flew with Delta , they checked my Suitcase at no cost all the way to my final destinations , that was expected ! When I was going to return , they made me payed 120 dollars ( in Kiev , Ukraine (UIA) , I was very disappointed and I really will love an explanation about all this !"
Positiv: "The staff were very helpful and professional. The air hostesses regularly checked if I was ok and showed concern when I wasn’t. They made what seemed a bad situation seem bearable."
Negativ: "The food was not very nice and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."
Negativ: "10 minutes late to the airport....... No help, no refund, no nothing. Never using you again"
Negativ: "Flying back to US, passsengers get charged for their luggage. Which this is not informed to us, neither On our email nor when we were checking ( for free) in Us"
Positiv: "Service and crew are great"
Positiv: "Flight crew, pilot,food and entertainment options were great"
Negativ: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"
Positiv: "Flug war kurz, dennoch gab es Getränke. Das war super!"
Positiv: "Flugpersonal war außerordentlich aufmerksam und freundlich. Der Flug mehr als entspannt. Auch das Essen war super!"
Negativ: "Missed flight due to lack of direction, last minute gate change and they shut door in our face after telling us they were holding plane"
Positiv: "Boarding staff helpful with Disabilities; food services quick and pleasant; interior cabin temps appropriate."
Negativ: "Why is boarding so prolonged? 1-Small children and elders cannot stand for 20/30 minutes 2-Why are various sections (particularly Economy), no longer boarded by rows. and from rear first...so people don’t clog aisles, step over others, injure or be injured by heavy overhead moves?"
Positiv: "Alle ok, Personal freundlich zuvorkommend"
Negativ: "kleiner Snack mit Kaffee, alles gut für den kurzen Flug."
Positiv: "The entertainment screen was a small 4" screen. The movie selection was outdated. The screen in my seat did not work. Flight attendant said she would "call to have it reset" but it never worked. Fortunately, there was an adjacent empty seat that I moved to on my own initiative and without the flight attendant offering a seat change."
Negativ: "Plane left 45 minutes late. No reason given either when waiting or after late boarding. I didn't eat as I tried to sleep byt narrow seats meant being woken constantly by fidgety neighbour. Fortunately the plane made up most of the lost time and I got my next Air France flight. This one was 50 minutes late departing."
Positiv: "Food was Fantastic, Air France the Best on Air."
Positiv: "Crew were pleasant most of the time"
Negativ: "Boarding process is total chaos Took 40 mins to.check in at desk , pre ordered for wheelchair Never showed ...total zoo Beds advertised as lie flat bu they are NOT 180 degree flat , legs hang down - bad for circulation"
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: "The flight was cancelled. Ground staff at Montreal were far from helpful. They kept saying “Call customer service.” and never offered any help/assistance for rebooking and finding a hotel room."
Positiv: "Guter Service"
Negativ: "Held on the plane for 3 hours while waiting to de-ice"
Positiv: "Short of the entertainment system incident, the service was pleasant. It was nice to NOT be on a full flight and have both seats to myself."
Negativ: "Entertainment system was not working, and crew was fairly nonchalant about it. In the past they at least apologized and on the better end gave out drink vouchers. Not this time."
Positiv: "Plane was nice, clean, good entertainment options, departed almost on time, arrived on time."
Negativ: "Boarding process - seat upgrades should come with boarding zone upgrades. Paying extra for a seat and then boarding in last zone makes no sense to me."
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: "Crew and staff were pleasant"
Negativ: "Consistently the longest shortest flight in Canada"
Positiv: "Tried so hard to be friendly & cheerful to flight attendants & they were pretty humorless."
Positiv: "The connecting flight was with air Canada. In general the flight was fine. Landed on a Saturday afternoon."
Negativ: "What was not fine was the horror at the other end when air Canada lost my bag (which had my suit and prescriptions) and couldn't tell me where it was or when it would be delivered for over two days of calling between their service centre and one the ground people at Boston. The call centre was in India, no one in Boston would tell them what was going on. It should not take three days to sort, when the bag had actually been sent on the next flight (on Saturday evening) after the one I took. Fortunately, was able to borrow BP medication from a relative and ultimately had to spend money to buy new suit and clothes before bag finally appeared because I had business meetings for which I needed appropriate attire. Every other airline I gave flown where my bag was delayed was always delivered in 24 hours. This was not Brussels airlines fault, it was the fault of air Canada."
Positiv: "The flight from Toronto to Boston is extremely short, about an hour. I don’t feel as though I can rate the food since I didn’t buy any, it just doesn’t give me an option to not rate it. It was a completely full flight. It was as comfortable as can be. It’s a smaller plane so you feel everything but the captains were good flyers."
Negativ: "I’m not sure if this is something I can really complain about but I wish the flight attendants would’ve spoken a bit lower. For a plane where half of the people there had missed their connecting flight and were put on a 6:30 am flight, I don’t think we wanted to hear about their detailed personal lives."
Positiv: "That we eventually got a flight home."
Negativ: "Being stuck in Boston and Ottawa for 2 extra days and adding around $1200 on to our trip in hotels alone (I was travelling with 4 kids on a school trip and my wife). Additionally, we didn’t find out the flights were cancelled until we arrived at the airport. Apparently, they had been cancelled 2 hours before but there was no notification. Air Canada offered no help whatsoever and the guy at the “service” desk in Boston literally said there was nothing he could do to help. Not even find a new flight. Spent 90 minutes on the phone trying to re-book, plus re-booking hotel along the way."
Negativ: "Everything was seamless and i have no complaints. My return flight was cancelled amd i was automatically put on a different flight, and instead of waiting more than 2 hours from boston to get to canada, i was put on an earlier flight for which i am thankful for. However we couldnt take off as delta was clogging up the way to the runaway so ended up waitimg an hour to taje off which was ridiculous. Hope delta hires more ground crew so that others arent inconvenienced in the future."
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."
Positiv: "Boarding, service, entertainment we're all good."
Negativ: "Early morning flights from Toronto to Boston are a bit bumpy usually. Pilots do their best to maneuver around those."
Positiv: "Same as above"
Negativ: "Immigration was painfully slow and why getting checked again when just coming from another plane? wait time for luggage far too long seems an airport issue same movies"
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: "I flew through Vancouver from Boston on my way to Brisbane, Australia and back. I was nervous at first because of the 2 hour connection windows. This might be a testament to Vancouver Airport more than Air Canada, but the flight home after an initial 14 hour flight was pain free. Boarding was fast (the flight wasn't full) and we ended up pulling away from the terminal early. I slept most of the flight so I can't really comment on food. The entertainment was the same as when i left for Australia, which was ok. It had a decent variety to select from."
Negativ: "Still waiting to try to get on a flight via the standby option, and even that flight keeps getting delayed and the gate was changed. The whole trip has been a clusterf***."
Negativ: "First it was delayed because of the aircraft, then it was delayed some more because of the bags on the plane but no passengers - bag owners . Then it was delayed because the ramp crew could not be found to remove the bags. Then it was delayed because of the weather ..."
Positiv: "Clearing immigration in Vancouver is very convenient"
Negativ: "Food choices are limited and expensive."
Positiv: "Their staff is extremely friendly and helpful, but they can only do what is within corporate rules to help you. Their corporate policies are NOT GOOD!"
Negativ: "Flying Air Canada is horrible! They nickel & dime you to the point of tears. They charged me $15 per leg to make advanced seat assignments ($60 total) then changed my flights and put me in middle seats on two legs without asking me - I didn't find out until I was ready to board and they called my name to come to the gate desk! They also charge $33+ US to check one bag. If you go over the 50 lb weight limit they charge $100. By the time you add it all up, I could have flown on Delta through the US for less. Trying to get my seat selection fees reimbursed was very difficult; At the airport, they told me to go online and ask for a refund; Online, I couldn't find the way to get to the refund link; Called Customer service again, who gave me an 800# to call for a refund; the person on the 800 # told me I had to request it online but walked me through it to find the refund link; I filled in the online request and was told by automatic reply that Air Canada would investigate it and get back to me within 3-4 weeks. Ugh! No more Air Canada for me!"
Negativ: "We miss the opportunity to order an appetizer on the flight; a fun part of any travel experience."
Positiv: "Vegan options for snacks were given which was great. Courteous staff were attentive and polite."
Negativ: "It's a basic flight, not much to complain about. My standards are generally low."
Positiv: "Buult-in entertainment system, good selection of programs to watch, ok customer service."
Negativ: "Two and a half hour delay on an 1:20 flight. I fly with Air Canada often, and delays are constant, especially on the evening flights. WestJet, which services the same route, doesdoesn't have this problem."
Negativ: "Many of us were refused boarding on the connecting flight. They gave away our seats. I arrived at the transvfer counter50 minutes prior to the flight. I was first. Gave excuse that bag must go with me. Customs confirmed that this is AC not customs. To add insult, they flight to Montreal was late, the flight to Boston was late, and finally my bag NEVER was on either flight so there excuse was an out right lie. I missed half the weekend home in over a month. AC doesn't value my time and I don't value their service. Every time I go back to this airline I realized why I left. Going to Asia; don't get suckered into using this route. BTW a friend on PVG-YUL-BOS never made it as well. AC still using a CRJ200 that can't land in weather. NOT A BUSINESS CLASS EXPERIENCE."
Positiv: "Dieser kurze Flug verlief schnell und komfortabel. Es gab Internetzugang am Board, der gut funktionierte."
Negativ: "There was a major winter storm on the way, and the flight should have been canceled like every other flight to Boston was. Long story short, we couldn't land in Boston due to the storm. So we flew not to Boston, but to Quebec City. They would not let us off the airplane. Eventually we flew back to Montreal where we started. More than 7 hours on a plane with no food, and they only offered us water. The flight should have been cancelled in the first place. That would have been a lot less stressful to deal with."
Positiv: "It was excellent. Though due to snowfall, flight took off late due to de-icing but taking safety precautions is a best practice."
Positiv: "This was my first time in Canada never been there before I had a great time until that one moment I had to deal with workers from air Canada except one agent at the ticketing desk....I had checked in online the day before however I had some card issues because they got shut down by my bank and due to the holiday in America I was unable to call my Bank prior to the airport....got to the airport and tried to explain that all I wanted to do was pay for my bag with cash ...but no one took the time out to listen each time i tried explaining myself I was send to a different location to join another line ....by the time I got to someone who was willing to listen my flight was closed ..her name was Aurora and gave me nothing but attitude when I explained my story......anyways finally got to ticketing and a met the only agent that day who exercise some level of customer service that day...if only I could remember her name ...sigh she went the extra mile because at this point I was frustrated and unsure if I would make it out of the country a sane person due to the amount of chaos I experienced prior. She got LISTENED .....SHE TOOK THE TIME TO LISTEN...got me on a new flight and went above an beyond to assist me that morning I was on the verge of a breakdown at that point all other staff member was very disgusting not only to my self but the other individuals who had mishaps that morning."
Positiv: "long delay with no explanation, surly staff, poor communication"
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: "Crew was very friendly"
Negativ: "Flight was delayed but only for an hour"
Positiv: "Short flight - no issues"
Positiv: "Nothing in particular stood out in Montreal or the flight to Boston, as better than average...meh"
Negativ: "Our Swiss crew told us over the loudspeaker several times that "even if connecting we still need to get our luggage" which turned out to be false as our luggage was transferred to the Boston bound plane automatically... We were ushered out as a group to a connection security check which required electronic kiosks to be used for scanning our passports photos and fingerprints... They fraught with malfunctions then after waiting in line for s while we did the whole check all over again with s human security agent in s booth... There were only 2 security agents in the booths as well but there really needed to be several more to keep the line moving quicker... After security we walk directly out to departures but no mention of baggage claim, which was fine had we not been misinformed by Swiss initially... We ended up inquiring several times with SirCsnsda staff until it was clear Swiss had misinformed us."
Negativ: "I did not take it."
Positiv: "The flight itself was fine, free WiFi on board, movies to watch, stewards and stewardesses on board were very kind and attentive."
Negativ: "I was originally flying WestJet, and the 7:05 AM flight I booked was cancelled. I hopped online and booked the 8:10 AM flight via Air Canada back to Boston. First, the flight was oversold, so only AFTER I was able to check my bag did I learn that I was flying stand-by. Completely nerve wracking. If I had known in advance I would have booked with another airline. I was able to get on the flight thanks to some volunteers who gave up their seats on the 8:10 AM flight for the next flight out (10:10 AM) in return for some monetary compensation. I arrived in Boston, and after waiting for 45 minutes, I learned my bag was put on the 10:10 AM flight rather than the 10:10 AM flight, but only after dealing with a snappy and disrespectful check-in attendant that seemed to not believe me that my bags indeed did not arrive. The office for baggage services for Air Canada was vacant and locked next to the carousel. Myself and a couple of other travelers, upon getting to the check-in counter and explaining the situation mistakenly lumped us all together and said "okay so you're all traveling together and your bags need to go the same place". Me: "No, that's incorrect, we are not related or traveling together, we just all have the same issue--none of our bags have arrived". Other Air Canada representative, who up to this point had not been involved in the exchange: "She didn't ask you if you were related, she asked you if your bags were lost" and then proceeded to roll her eyes and walk away from the counter. I suppose she misinterpreted my concern for rudeness and felt the need to put me in my place. Granted, my early morning flight cancellation and the stress associated with flying standby had nothing to do with them, but the attitude I was given as a concerned traveler whose bag was potentially lost was completely unwarranted. Compounded with the frustration of the entire morning I cannot describe how infuriating this exchange added up to being. I was told my bag would be delivered to my home by 4 PM that day. No bag. Got a phone call at 7 PM - they'd be there in the next hour. 10:00 PM and going to bed: No bag. I gave up and prepared to make a claim in the morning. 8:30 AM Sunday morning - my bag is sitting on my front porch wrapped in a trash bag. What a fiasco."
Negativ: "Flight crew not helpful. Despite empty space in first class overheads, would not allow coach passenger to put anything there."
Negativ: "Flight was delayed. They lost my baggage. TV in my seat didn't work and they didn't do anything about it."
Positiv: "Spacious flight Cozy environment Comfortable sitting"
Positiv: "-Staff offered free things like headphones and 15 minutes of wifi access to compensate for multiple delays -Cheap! -I was rescheduled to this flight after my previous flight was delayed and prevented me from taking my original flight back, but I was moved up to boarding zone 3 in return"
Negativ: "-Significant delay prevented me from checking in to my room, which was highly inconvenient. Fortunately I had a friend who was willing to have me, but if not (and because the nearby hotels are filled up due to the beginning of freshman orientation at my college), I would have had nowhere to stay after 13+ hours of flying and exhaustion. This alone significantly hurt the experience."
Positiv: "Everything excep boarding on return flight."
Negativ: "Delay on return & boarding was really slow! Not sure if it was the computers or attendants."
Negativ: "Our inbound flight was two hours late. When connecting through Toronto, they lied to us. They said that the outbound connection was on time, that we'd likely missed it. Then, after standing through their requisite customer service line with only one open desk for two full flights, we were told to sprint through customs. We arrived, breathless to find the connection was delayed. We were told that they don't post the delayed connections for fear that passengers won't run or that U.S. customs will close. Uncommunicative and untruthful, their service is atrocious."
Positiv: "Flight crew was friendly. They were dealing with a lot of crabby people due to a 4 hour weather delay. They handled it, some better than others."
Negativ: "I checked my bag. It got soaked. I am talking drenched like dumped in a lake and left there for the 4 hours we were delayed in Toronto. When we contacted air canada the luggage complaint rep told us to complete an online claim. We haven't heard a peep out of Air Canada in a week. Unacceptable Air Canada. You must would at least acknowledge that something was done wrong by a baggage crew even if they aren't on your payroll and on an airports."
Negativ: "Absolute joke of an airline with zero customer service. I would never travel with them again and would recommend anyone else not too."
Positiv: "I liked waiting to fly until weather was good."
Negativ: "I disliked the long delay, no time for the drink cart."
Positiv: "Crew was efficient, and the plane was on time."
Negativ: "The seating and luggage storage was a bit cramped."
Negativ: "After waiting 30 minutes after our boarding time, I got an email on my phone saying the gate had changed. No one at the current gate knew anything about it and I went to ask but no one could be found. I asked a man sitting behind the gate, who happened to be the pilot, and he also knew nothing about it. Needless to say, the gate changed and absolutely nobody was told about it. 2 hours later, our flight finally took off, and I was thanked by the pilot for getting us to the right gate... At least he provided a little humor to the situation! Plane also wasn't cleaned, pretzels and trash all over the floor."
