Flight delayed. Bags lost. Flight attendant never coming by when light on. No WiFi or power outlet onboard.
Alles ist gut abgelaufen. Es war ein kurzer Flug und wir haben eine schöne gute Aufenthalt gehabt. Dann haben wir ja sehr gut gelandet.
Perhaps boarding by groups would help a bit with the organization during boarding. There is a lack of space for overhead bags, and this caused some stress amongst the passengers.
Leider hatte die Lufthansa nicht genug Verpflegung an Board. Dies war schon auf dem Hinflug der Fall. Bereits ab Reihe 19 konnten die vegetarischen Speisewünsche nicht mehr bedient werden. Sehr schade bei einem 3,5 Stunden Flug, wenn man das Essen gedanklich eingeplant hat.
Exzellenter, professioneller Service.
Always luggage delays, won’t fly Lufthansa again
Despite the difficulties of the Covid surge all logistics functioned seamlessly.
Our plane had a lot of physical deficiencies. The seats did not recline properly or would not sit up straight. The outlets did not work. Our screens had a lag time & we could not properly watch movies or track the flight. Halfway through finally getting a movie to work, my entire screen re-set & then I couldn't get back into the movie. The food was also awful. Drinks were only passed twice, water was not available compared to other international flights. The gentleman in front of me was rarely wearing his mask & they would only tell him to pull it up, not enforce the rules. Our flight also waited for connecting flights in Frankfurt & we didn't leave on time (it actually left over an hour later than planned) so we missed all of our connecting flights in Chicago. Definitely a horrible flight experience.
Security checks were doubled on return trip compared with outgoing trip do not know why.
Not enough time to comfortably meet connecting flight. I had to RUN! not fun!!!
I have one comment for this trip, sardine, pandemic and everything, and plane was maxed. It was horrible. Staff was great but, this was horrible.
Positiv: "nicht angetreten"
Negativ: "verfallen lassen - nach Köln war es billiger als nach FRA"
Positiv: "Desinfektionstuch an Board erhalten."
Negativ: "Freundlichkeit einzelner Crew-Mitgliwder."
Negativ: "I was supposed to have wheelchair assistance. None there. Flight was on time. Passenger assistance is AWFUL!!!"
Positiv: "Salmon dinner was the best dish Lufthansa ever served"
Negativ: "Flight attendants disappeared after serving dinner. They didn't come around once between dinner and breakfast. This was the worst LH crew ever."
Negativ: "Rückflug war 4h Verspätet und WiFi an Board war dann auch noch defekt."
Negativ: "Essen wurde nicht ausgeteilt"
Positiv: "The crew were so friendly and helpful."
Negativ: "I was told on the phone earlier (and very rudely) there are no gluten free options for eating. I have celiac disease and do not do the diet for "fun". It's for health. I found out thanks to the excellent crew on board there is an option."
Positiv: "Flight was good. The problem was the ticket purchased from Kayak was not as stated. Because there was a layover in Amsterdam, I was not able to check my bag all the way through to USA. AND I had to visit 5 counters to check bag, pay for bag at different counter and 3 other counters!"
Negativ: "It would have been better if the ticket I purchased was the one that I selected. It was not as advertised. I searched for ticket that was translatlantic with one checked bag. BUT kayak booked an ECONOMY LIGHT fare that required payment. It was not as advertised and a total head ache for check in."
Positiv: "Crew war nett!"
Negativ: "War eigentlich alles in Ordnung!"
Negativ: "Verpflegung fehlte kpl"
Negativ: "Crew was young and did a good job but I got the feeling they were working their way to their own vacation at the destination."
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: "Gefallen hat mir, dass der Kapitän immer wieder den aktuellen Status zu unserem Aufenthalt in Linz mitgeteilt hat. So war sichergestellt, dass stets die neues Information zur Verfügung stand."
Negativ: "Die Verpflegung, als wir nach Linz umgeleitet wurden. Leider gab es nur Getränke."
Positiv: "Pilotin war eine Katastrophe. Flug ungleichmäßig und die Landung total schlecht. Das. hintere Teil ist aufgeschlagen."
Negativ: "Landung und Flug"
Positiv: "Freundliches Bordpersonal"
Negativ: "Essen wurde kalt verteilt, auch in Business class recht enge Sitze"
Positiv: "The food was good"
Negativ: "I paid for extra space and it looked like the seats I got were the same as all the others"
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."
Negativ: "I had ordered pre flight online duty free shopping. Got a confirmation e-mail telling me that articles were reserved for me and I should approach crew members on board for the articles I had reserved. Reality however was that my pre ordered articles were not registered in their system :-("
Negativ: "Getränkeauswahl sehr klein"
Positiv: "The crew was o.k."
Negativ: "Internetverbindung war vergleichsweise langsam"
Positiv: "Wir sind First Class geflogen, hatten Sitze in der Mitte nebeneinander. Trotz des streckenweise holprigen Flugs hatten wir es sehr bequem. Freundlichste Betreuung während des gesamten Fluges. Wegen der Kaschmir-Krise wurde der Flug umgeleitet und dauerte ca 40 Minuten länger. Wir konnten den buchstäblich erstklassigen Service also länger nutzen. Die Flugbegleiterinnen hatten in der Ausnahmesituation alle Hände voll zu tun. Wir haben uns trotzdem bestens betreut gefühlt."
Negativ: "Das laktosefreie Menü war nicht auf First-Class-Niveau."
Positiv: "The flight attendants were professional, courteous, attentive, and the only parts of this experience that made this flight bearable."
Negativ: "My partner and I orginially selected a window and middle seat. When we boarded the plane we were switched to the two middle seats of a 4 seat row. Honouring our original requests would have made a world of difference. If Lufthansa cannot do this much then I do not want to fly with them."
Positiv: "Noch nie so ein chaotisches Boarding in MUC gehabt. Vier Gate Agents und trotzdem"
Positiv: "Soweit ok für die kurze Strecke"
Positiv: "die crew"
Negativ: "platz,bestelltes veganes essen nicht bekommen ! , beinfreiheit , qualitaet des essens !"
Negativ: "Giving economy seats with the middle seat empty does not make it business class. Very uncomfortable seats. No recline and very hard."
Positiv: "Boarding ist schnell erfolgt"
Negativ: "- Der Flug war 20min zu spät - Als Verpflegung gab es nur ein crosaint aus der Tüte - der Sitz war so durch gesessen das ich ein Metallgestell im Rücken hatte - Das Flugzeug war schon vom älteren Semester"
Positiv: "Sehr freundliches Personal. Moderne Maschine."
Negativ: "Boarding dauerte lang"
Positiv: "Das Boarding hat super geklappt. An Board war das Personal sehr zuvorkommend und zum Glück hatten wir einen angenehmen, ruhigen Flug. Leider hatte mein Kopfhörer einen Wackelkontackt und der Touchscreen war schon sehr überstrapaziert."
Negativ: "Das Sicherheitspersonal am Flughafen war extrem unfreundlich und provozierend, und äußerst familienunfreundlich."
Positiv: "Es war nett"
Negativ: "Das Essen war nicht gut"
Positiv: "Great service and timeliness."
Negativ: "I wasn’t offered earphone headset so I could not enjoy entertainment."
Positiv: "Das Personal war sehr zuvorkommend jung und wirklich nett! Alle Ansagen im Flugzeug waren ausführlicher und netter als für gewöhnlich"
Negativ: "Von drei Flügen auf der Strecke Bali-FRA war einer von Lufthansa ausgeführt und der einzige verspätete gewesen. Leistung - OK, mehr kann ich nicht sagen."
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: "Flight was delayed 75 mins. We were at Newark longer than we were on the flight."
Negativ: "Boarding not organize properly Letting passengers go from front to back not good"
Positiv: "Crew was great, there was nobody sitting beside me so that was a big bonus. Smooth flight and the wine was pretty good."
Positiv: "Guter Service"
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: "Excellent processes- on time, landing, taking off, boarding, checking in. Good product."
Negativ: "No entertainment provided (iPad tablets you need to pay for 10 dollars), pay as you go Wifi, and limited legroom/ overall comfort. Other US airlines have on demand videos. Overnight flight without pillows/ blankets provided."
Positiv: "Efficient and quick, no issues."
Positiv: "Lots of choices for entertainment. Our tickets were booked as a family of 3 and we did get placed together this time in a row of 3 seats."
Negativ: "Nothing was bothersome. Everything was satisfactory."
Negativ: "Very sub par service and you have to pay extra to reserve a seat."
Positiv: "Had an empty middle seat between my window seat and my friend's aisle seat which was nice on such a long flight."
Negativ: "This was my first intercontinental flight on Air Canada and I was surprised at how meager their meal and entertainment offerings were. Every other airline I've flown between North America and Asia gives bigger meals and more free entertainment to help pass the considerable flight time."
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: "squeeze me into an earlier flight"
Negativ: "Everything good."
Positiv: "Movie selection"
Negativ: "Everything was ok"
Positiv: "Our seats were much better on this flight than our longer leg. I was much more comfortable. The entertainment was just as good as our international flight."
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: "Food, service, seat (Business class), aircraft"
Negativ: "No internet connection"
Positiv: "The crew was extremely friendly."
Negativ: "On the outbound flight, the airplane was really cold. The flight was delayed to the point where we would not have made our connection if our second flight was not delayed. The sound quality of the entertainment was very poor."
Positiv: "Not great seating on this smaller plane for business class. Staff was good. Didn't eat so don't know how the food was."
Negativ: "Business class seats were small. No difference from economy"
Positiv: "The on board entertainment was phenomenal. My kids LOVED that they could connect and play games with each other. The gate agents in narita were the sweetest people I've come across in a long time."
Negativ: "Air Canada is pretty dang snobby for the most part. Im not sure when a rule was instituted that headphones can't be worn under 10000 feet, but my three children were targeted many times about their headsets... on the ear, boring kid headsets... and there were THREE adults around us wearing similar headsets that were not bothered. I am a single mother of three tired children and we were settling in for a long flight and I found the treatment very unnecessary and discriminatory. The food was pretty awful, lol. We ordered kids meals and none of my kids ate on the flight."
Positiv: "Flight attendants"
Negativ: "-majority of tvs were shorted out and not working -plane was heavily delayed so didn't make second transfer flight -one attendant gave us wrong directions to next gate at LAX -LAX airport was under heavy construction which delayed gating gate to gate -Customer service offered no options to how to get to San Diego -now we are in debt with a car rental, gas, and having to go back to the airport twice for the baggage -most likely won't be using United Airlines again"
Positiv: "On time, smooth, nice crew."
Negativ: "I don't like the fakt you have to pay for food on not so short flight( over 5 hours). Addicionaly, pay machines are apparently old fashion because they only take Visa. I can pay with my Master Card anywhere else in the world but Air Canada."
Positiv: "Dieser kurze Flug verlief schnell und komfortabel. Es gab Internetzugang am Board, der gut funktionierte."
Negativ: "The crew was unbelievably rude"
Negativ: "No legroom at all. Try to squeeze far too many passengers."
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"
Negativ: "Air Canada stopped flying to SLC while we we're on our trip. so it made the connections to other flights after getting to Toronto (from Amsterdam) really tricky and tight on time. While on the flight from Amsterdam, things were great, but that stress of being rerouted was not great..."
Negativ: "The movie selection was limited. The stewardess were not very friendly and were hard to hear,"
Negativ: "staff did not meet the plane because they were not organized."
Positiv: "May not fly Air Canada again!!!"
Negativ: "Twice now Air Canada has changed flight itineraries into SLC, this time by one day, making a 26 hour layover in Toronto and another time a 48 hour layover by changing the flight by two days."
Negativ: "See above"
Negativ: "Took off too late and missed next flight"
Negativ: "Had to pay for seat assignments when reservation made or no seat reservations. Not true on all airlines. Delta let us pick seats for free when the reservation was made. Husband had wanted a window seat and ended up with a middle seat. No free snacks just drinks"
Negativ: "We were quite disappointed when we were told there would be a delay due to mechanical issues after already boarding and being on the plane for over two hours. Imagine our distress at being trapped in a narrow seat inside the confines of a plane still sitting on the tarmac and going nowhere with very limited climate control and circulation that added even more discomfort. This level of stress was compounded by the manner in which our minimal nutritional and hydration needs were not only met but as fare paying passengers, we were teased by a meager slice of packaged and processed sliced banana bread and a mere two cups of water. This fact is especially important because it more severely impacted my father who is diabetic and it was not sufficient for him, especially at 11:44 p.m. Also because there was no communication relayed to passengers that the problem would not be resolved the second time we boarded, Air Canada agents should have recommended or handed out dinner vouchers while we were waiting in the airport after they evacuated us the first time (since everything was closed the second time we were evacuated). We were stuck on the plane for a total of 4 hours two separate times they boarded us and in between that we waited back in the airport for 2 hours; therefore a total of over 6 hours of time past the original boarding time which lead us into 1:30am of not going anywhere. Flight was rescheduled for 23 hours later! We understand the challenges of operating an airline and trying to meet schedules and the needs of the customers. Furthermore, we appreciate diligence when it applies to the safety of flying. However, the myriad problems, distress, physical and discomfort not to mention the over 23 hellish hours, was exacerbated by the following: the lack of communicaton and bad information; the paucity of empathy reflected by all Air Canada employees toward our aggregation; the measures taken to mitigate the damage inflicted to what was to be our “dream vacation” and finally the scarcity of adequate accommodation and compensation for all that we endured. We too lost one night at the Barcelona Universal Hotel worth $207, not to mention a lost vacation day worth over $600 in salary for 8 hours for us. Air Canada should be held to higher standards and more responsible for keeping up to date on their aircraft maintenance checks and regulations. There was also no specific hotel address on the voucher issued which caused us to drive to two different sheraton 4 points locations until we finally reached our destination which there was no vacancy. Luckily after lingering around in the lobby and me having to call multiple hotels to verify vacancy, one room became available and we ended up inviting another family to stay in our room that night (other Air Canada victims). We didn’t get to bed until 5am that following morning after all of that ruckus!!"
Negativ: "Flight was late from Barcelona to Mintreal by an hour. I needed a wheelchair - didn't show up! Then pulled a muscle trying to get through customs and they barely held my flight to Chicago. Made it, with No Help. Late into Chicago and still no wheelchair. There was no one from whom to get help. Finally a United Airlines employee took pity on me and got a wheelchair to me and got me to the flight - again, just barely. Over 20 hours in the air, no assistance and poor food. I will never fly air canada again - ever. Not worth the savings. I've spent an entire week recovering and spent the savings on physical therapy due to the damage to my legs."
Positiv: "The app with the movies and tv shows. The non stop flight to Canada. The electronic check in option at the Ontario Airport. The email I received reminding me about the flight The small aircraft on the way from Orlando to Canada The size of the restroom on the plane back from Ontario to Canada. I am pregnant so that extra room to stretch is great. The fast service when retrieving my luggage."
Negativ: "My flight back was delayed 2 hours. There were screaming kids on the plane. The flight status on the main screen on the airport reflected a different time than the app."
Negativ: "No leg room Seats uncomfortable"
Positiv: "always has extra seats available."
Negativ: "A lot of families with kids, dirty lavatory due to low passenger profile. Rude flight attendant while having seated before take off. Dirty Boarding area. Poor food quality."
Positiv: "The person next to me was moved...so I had the whole row to myself. It was comfortable!"
Negativ: "No food was served other than snacks for purchase."
Positiv: "excellent take off and landing, very smooth"
Negativ: "Could serve a nicer snack.....came around once with free liquids....seemed more interested in pushing food to purchase....don't like paying for a seat when you already paid for a ticket"
Positiv: "Fast flight"
Negativ: "No leg room Overbooked Bad choice of movies"
Positiv: "Direct flight and good schedule"
Negativ: "The price was higher than Delta direct flight but I chose AC because of my top tier status on AC. That got me a complimentary upgrade but the entertainment system did not work"
Positiv: "After late departure, late arrival and waiting 40 min for gate to become available for the aircraft sorry all combined with horrific traffic problem at the La Guardia airport nothing to write home about."
Negativ: "Flight was delayed making me miss my connection. Poor customer service at the airport plus the fact that my baggage got lost however, it was delivered after 24 hours."
Positiv: "At least it was fast.."
Negativ: "No space, no tv, no food, no music, no blanket, no water, nothing. Pack everything you need or bring your credit card"
Negativ: "My boyfriend and I were flying from Toronto to Salt Lake City, we didn't pay for assigned seating (because who really wants to dish out extra money for something as silly as that?) and thought that it just meant that we still had seats on the plane and they just might not be next to each other which was fine. We did online check in and having our tickets sent to our phones (his worked fine and mine never came through, yes, we triple checked to make sure my phone number and everything was correct). Both of our tickets ended up saying the seat was GTE so when we got to the terminal (two hours early) the moment an employee was behind the counter we went up to talk to them and they said that we would get a seat on the flight and that it wouldn't be a problem at all for us to sit together. Right before they start boarding an announcement is made that the flight was overbooked (by 8 people!) and they were asking if anyone would be willing to give up their seat and receive compensation (no one would). So, all 8 of us had to go up to the same snarky man who had told us that we WOULD be getting seats and have him explain to us that the next flight isn't until tomorrow and we had to go to the Air Canada customer service desk to get the flight plan figured out. We had to wait 2 hours in line just to talk to someone who tried to make Air Canada out to be the victims (how dare we not want to pay $40 for a seat and because of our frugality poor Air Canada now has to compensate us for the inconvenience AND get us new plane tickets, we should feel so bad for them because they are now losing money). We had to wait for about 40 minutes with this lady because she was either new or not competent enough to figure out how to get us new tickets with Delta (guess why Delta? because Air Canada had already overbooked the flight out for the next day too! Looks like they'll be losing some more money). Oh yeah, she also scolded my boyfriend for having his plane ticket on his phone, because it inconvienenced her. That lady finally left and we finally got help from someone who actually knows what decent customer service is (shout out to Michelle Khan at Air Canada). She was really nice and understanding and was actually able to go through the process of getting us tickets and in a timely manner. She explained that while it is a complete joke, by law flights are allowed to overbook their flights by up to 10% of seats available on the flight. We could understand overbooking by a couple, but really, 8? Never fly with Air Canada."
Negativ: "Being stranded in Toronto for 24 hours with Air Canada unwilling to rebook us on other carriers to get us home sooner. Given our prediction of the missed connection and request for rebooking before our first leg of travel, it was particularly irritating that they would not help us get home the most efficient way."
