Plane was very delayed. US agents unhelpful in connection flt and in seating. No real info given on delay.
It was a better experience than the Mumbai flight
Cons: "Seats in economy were very uncomfortable, almost no cushion in any of the seats or the seat backs. Would not recommend Lufthansa for long haul."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "The seats were very cramped"
Pros: "Quick, comfortable and easy"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit clunky"
Cons: "I was lost my luggage for my whole trip and I still didn’t get my luggage yet very disappointed !!! You want to answer can you guys do something for me or any ideals"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and rescheduled for tomorrow same time due to bad weather. I had a child with me and it took 2.5 hours for us in the airport to get a hotel and taxi for night stay and I reached at 0030 at night. The lufthansa staff was not helpful at the start. I will missed a meeting for"
Pros: "The food was very good and the crew were great."
Cons: "Due to security concerns and having to go through security again, the flight was delayed."
Cons: "Staging at the gate was chaotic and disorganized. The passengers formed a big mob since there were no instructions for where to form lines for an organized boarding. Passengers could not hear boarding instructions from the front desk."
Pros: "Crew good, food good, plane clean"
Cons: "Temperature on plane was warm."
Pros: "Nice to have breakfast on board"
Cons: "Arrival was a little tardy"
Pros: "Food and boarding process"
Pros: "I was happy with everything stewardess where very friendly everything went smoth"
Pros: "Plenty of room in both the cabin and the bathroom- more than we have ever experienced. Food was very good. Crew was outstanding"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic for economy, with everyone mobbing around the entrance. Having people board in subsets, beyond just 1st class and people needing assistance would be helpful. It makes the entire airport gate areas hard to maneuver around for other people as each plane loads, and it stresses out the group waiting to get on the plane."
Cons: "All flights cancelled. Stuck overnight."
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "There was no communication between aircrew and gate for transfers. There is a new additional check between gates and no passenger was informed. This security check was over an hour long. The flight was not held for me and other passengers and when we arrived at the gate they were oblivious of the fact that we had been held up in what seemed to be a Km long security line."
Pros: "Great entertainment choices"
Cons: "Boarding by rows or areas would be better than the masses all at once after 1st class and business."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional"
Pros: "The service. Smooth flight."
Pros: "everything was great"
Pros: "We reached our destination eventually..."
Cons: "First the flight was delayed 45 minutes. After 45 minutes we got boarded and sat on the plane another 45 minutes due to the little cart pushing the plane not being available. After 45 minutes the crew had reached its hours and couldn't complete the flight with no replacement crew in sight. Plane was debarked new flight was rescheduled 4 hours later. Had to go through security a second time after ticket was reissued. This flight was also delayed 45 minutes. Getting to Copenhagen spent an extra 1 and a half in the airport dealing with lost baggage because it seems the 8 hours extra I spent in Frankfurt wasn't enough for them to transfer my bags."
Pros: "Helpful crew, comfortable seats"
Pros: "Seats felt softer."
Cons: "There was a delay."
Pros: "Crew was great. I was traveling with infant and they kept us kept us comfortable"
Pros: "Every things was perfect Thanks alot for the stuff who served during the flight they were very kind and helpful , this is the first time that I enjoyed the time being in this flight Thank you again"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed by well-over an hour, having me arrive an hour late for my connecting flight home. There were no efforts to assist me in locating my connecting flight, to set up any accommodations while at the connecting flight's airport for the additional 4 hours of waiting time, no apologies for making me late for wedding rehearsals (I'm the officiant!). I had to actively seek out the ticket counter for another airline, through which my connecting flight was re-routed."
Pros: "N-o entertainment"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Food was poor, dried up and not enough for 10 hours flight. You did have the option to buy more."
Pros: "Good food, friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Boarding process was torture. Lufthansa invited us to check-in early, but would not allow us to finish the check-in online process the day prior: seemed to be glitch in their computer system. We arrived at the airport early, but no one at Lufthansa could help us with seat assignments in order to seat our 12-yo daughter next to a partent. The airline did not open the gate area until 1+35 prior to the flight (advertised 2-hrs prior), and did not put anyone at the gate-desk until 1-hr prior to departure ...and they still could not help us. Boarding was disorganized; Lufthansa appeared to board by different groups, but there were no announcements as to which group(s) should board. Instead there was just a large crowd milling about, waiting to push their way to a gate agent. Very un-German."
Cons: "I didn't got the seats i asked for in the check in."
Pros: "Price was right."
Cons: "Just as bad as on any other airline these days."
Cons: "Breakfast bun was not tasty - too much bread and not healthy at all."
Pros: "On time arrival and departure along with crew attitude and general high service level."
Pros: "I have always wanted to travel with Lufthansa and will do so in future too. For my wife it was her first and she loved it."
Pros: "When in the air crew attentive"
Cons: "Late boarding after allowing priority customer to board, Crew then took ages to start to finish boarding and taxi , Plane sent to furtherest runway, Made little time up,"
Cons: "Seated near and next to me were about 9 German men who had begun their vacation to Colorado in the airport bar prior to the flight. I was seated in a middle seat "J" (I believe) in row 37 or 39. The men were receiving from the stewardesses repeatedly two glasses at a time and kept going back to the galley and getting two glasses of wine at a time Although they were loud, congregating in the aisle around rows 37 and 39 they were not limited in what they could drink. The two on either side of me were disrespectful of my personal space and were very inappropriate. I got up and went to the galley behind my seat to ask the stewardesses to get me another seat. During this time the guys kept coming back to this galley for more wine still taking two at a time. The stewardesses explained that the plane was full. Others complained also. I then asked the stewardesses if since they were over serving these guys, would they trade one of their jump seats with me. At this point they cut the guys off and got the pursar. She talked to them and ignored my personal safety concerns and said no one gets on a plane drunk (yeah, right) and that they would now behave and were asleep. That's why they are still talking at the top of their lungs and standing in the aisle? I asked. I wish I had video recorded this, I did not as others with kids in the aisles across from me did. I hope their videos go viral Not impressed with Lufthansa"
Pros: "Lufthansa delivers always a great service. Good timing, schedule and service!"
Pros: "Lufthansa seems to have friendlier more helpful customer service than does Webjet's customer service."
Cons: "Webjet customer service didn't seem very friendly or concerned about helping to request fees waived from themselves and Lufthansa."
Pros: "The coach seats were much more comfortable than Air Canada's. The flight was without incident. Staff were great! Accommodating, friendly and efficient! Incredible choices of movies, news, etc controlled by individual passenger."
Cons: "We were delayed by complicated connection from Vienna train station to Vienna airport, by the time we arrived, we missed our flight. We called your customer service, and a recording stated that we would get a reply within 48 hrs. We contacted website customer service and it stated that we would get a reply within 48 hrs. We needed immediate assistance from a HUMAN BEING to change our reservation, that was impossible. We were forced to purchase new tickets, the cost was $2,500, we had to stay overnight in a nearby hotel, the cost was $220. We are returning one day later than planned all because we could not reach you."
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight and the movies."
Cons: "I didnt like the crew, they was very caold and not pleasant at all. didnt like the food."
Cons: "Delays, no economy plus option"
Pros: "Friendly crew, overall international flight experience was comfortable. Thank you."
Pros: "Smooth ight"
Cons: "Need to add cabin service"
Cons: "Don’t get the egg salad breakfast sandwich. It’s got more turkey and cheese than egg salad."
Cons: "We were early arriving on both legs of our flight, which was nice. Charlotte Airport staff was rude as usual, so nothing new there. Overall, we had a great trip."
Pros: "Amazingly helpful and friendly crew."
Cons: "Affordable fares equates to small space."
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "More snack options"
Pros: "The crew was great. They especially did a remarkable job keeping bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Food is definitely not as good as international airlines."
Cons: "Business class - never offered food or drink for entire flight."
Cons: "Flight attendant was exceptional."
Cons: "Taxi time to gate was almost half hour."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The seats were very uncomfortable. I've flown Lufthansa many times and there is a big difference."
Pros: "The flight and cabin crews handled an equipment problem and consequent delay, and information about it, very well."
Pros: "some what and it could be better"
Cons: "the help you get from the crew and if they wouldn't make so many gate changes"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly tasty for airplane food, vote would be lovely if someone could figure out how to produce a hash brown at the passenger seat without having it be limp"
Cons: "I’m guessing that a great many passengers would happily pay 10% more on their fair to have 10% fewer seats on board so that was actually possible to achieve a state of modest comfort while flying in a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 40 minutes but then they intentionally lied to the passenger's and boarded the airport to tell them they will be moving away from the gate and park for 1.5 hours. Sneakly little unethical you know what ."
Pros: "Great Airport and easy access to the gates and transportation."
Pros: "Crew was okay."
Cons: "It was uncomfortable from arriving at FCO for check in to landing at DFW."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Well I missed my cousin wedding because of the delay in NY, Chicago and AZ how is that even possible American Airline"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late due to weather!"
Cons: "Confusion on boarding. No clear direction. One cup of water for 6 hours. No food for 6 hours when other international airlines give food for 3 hours flight and lot of water. Uncomfortable seat."
Cons: "American wins tge coach torture contest!"
Pros: "Flight was under booked so there was plenty of room."
Cons: "Crew was unexpectedly loud/chatty with one another throughout the flight, even when things were quite and calm they were calling over our heads to one another and laughing loudly. Initially, it's an international flight from Spain and no crew members in my section atleast could speak Spanish. I had to help a passenger who only spoke spanish because the attendant kept repeating an order in english, just getting louder each time."
Cons: "American Airlines won't let you buy emergency row exit seats (or bulk head) because the 'code share' prevents them from advance seat sales. I was told I could do it at check in in Los Angeles. But those seats were sold out long before we even got to LA! I contacted American Airlines Customer Relations about 1 month prior to my flight. I completed their online form detailing the problem and asked if there is any way I could buy extra leg room seats. But they never even bothered to respond. I got the automated email acknowledging receipt of my complaint and assuring me I would be contacted soon. NOT!!"
Pros: "The Boeing 787 from LAX to Auckland was noticeably more comfortable than the Airbus 321 I flew to LAX to start the trip. Food was actually good!"
Cons: "For an obviously new aircraft the space between rows was horrendous. I am 5ft4in tall and when I sat down my knees touched the seat in front of me. When the passenger in front of me tilted his seat back I couldn’t even cross my legs! I like Qantas but I have learned to abhor American Airlines (which operated this flight), next time I will probably use Air New Zealand purely because of the seat situation."
Cons: "Food service was not announced. Take off was delayed one hour"
Pros: "New plane, great crew on board."
Cons: "seats were hard especially for a 13 1/2 hour flight."
Pros: "Very upset this was an American Airlines Plane and not Quantas. There was very little room so it was an extremely uncomfortable 13+ hour redeye flight."
Cons: "Bait and switch tactics, size of seats."
Pros: "The food was good, the crew was very professional. The flight was on time. The seats were OK, but not conducive to sleeping."
Cons: "We weren't assigned seats together. It ultimately worked out OK because I was assigned to sit between a mother and her young child. They asked if they could have my middle seat so they could sit together - hurray! After that, the person in the aisle seat next to my husband was willing to swap her aisle seat for my new-found aisle seat. But on long flights, greater efforts should be made to seat couples together."
Pros: "Smooth operation, on time"
Cons: "Seat pitch on the plane unbelievably cramped. When seats are so close that if you drop something on the floor you have to be a contortionist to get it, you know it's a problem NEVER fly the 787-900 economy."
Cons: "The seats were really bad, it was our first trip on a 787 and I will never do it again. Not as bad as the Airbus from MIA but considering it's 13 hours it was totally rubbish. We normally fly the 777 with Air NZ, after this we will go back to them. The staff, as always were helpfull and pleasant, the plane was quiet but the seats....."
Pros: "787 is one of the new planes; beautiful, clean, comfortable. Layout of business class looks efficient yet comfortable. Unlike the complicated layout in BAs business class. Stewards were polite, efficient and low key. Perfect! The pain was not very full so we were able to book the larger seats in the front of economy. I had thought this was the premium economy section but t was not marked as such."
Cons: "I flew economy where food is rarely any good at all. The options was bread & butter pudding or a cheese omelet. However, I noticed a number of passengers (me included) sent it back. I had the cheese and crackers. The least offensive option."
Cons: "A couple of flight attendants were a bit grumpy/short with passengers. Lack of food definitely not ideal but glad they could get something given circumstances with health department. Still waiting for promised vouchers to arrive."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The airplane was very old and I couldn't hear or see the "entertainment"."
Pros: "Food! Friendly crew"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful and the flight was smooth as expected."
Cons: "Nothing the airlines caused. I would however like to know if the plane will have screens and plugs on the plane before hand. Our flight coming had it and our flight home didn't and my phone was dead :-("
Pros: "How nice the crew were through it all was great! Flight to D.C. was smolth too."
Cons: "Because of the fire in the Tower, all flights in the DMV area were cancelled that evening. I was unable to go to work the following day having to request off sick."
Cons: "I am missing two items that I had in my checked bag and my clothes and belongings were all messy as if it had been gone through. I am very upset that these items were likely taken by whoever went through my bag."
Pros: "Everyone was so helpful. The flight was very quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "Lost our bag in LAX"
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Pros: "Nice, comfortable aircraft Nice Crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was slow and delayed. Flight late but that was due to late departure and some weather issues I'm a frequent flyer and my number is registered but still I end up in last boarding class?"
Cons: "One miserable pack of coffee cookies for $700+ ticket. I don't expect a 3 course meal on a 3 hour flight but seriously a pack of cookies? Too bad if one follows a gluten free diet."
Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time."
Cons: "Nothing really. A very typical flight."
Cons: "You wouldn't let me change my flight so I didn't even take it"
Cons: "Seats far too close together even for cosch"
Cons: "Do not bring blankets!! And the staff not nice"
Pros: "Left on time!"
Cons: "No peanut options for gluten free customers"
