Boarding and chk in.

Pros: "Excellent service and food."
Cons: "Seat could really use a real footrest instead of the metal bar."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was very rude and seemed bothered when I inquired about a meal since I was sleep when they originally handed them out and said that I would have to wait u til the next meal period."
Cons: "She could have informed me they where no longer available."
Cons: "Flight left without us even though they knew our flight had landed and we were on our way. Then they rerouted us with a longer flight and our luggage didn’t make it."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Cons: "I was traveling with my 5 and 10 year old kids. Lufthansa got us three seats in three different locations. When I asked to help us get seats together flight attendants told us that I should ask passengers if they could switch seats. Apparently Lufthansa staff doesn’t ask passengers to do it."
Pros: "Great crew! Excellent customer service with a smile!"
Cons: "Not sure how, but the food could be a bit better."
Pros: "I didn’t enjoy this flight as everything seemed very unwelcoming here"
Cons: "Take care of passengers for drinks and others. Treat passengers with other languages nicely rather than in condescending way. I saw air hostess laughing among themselves and being little short with passengers who couldn’t communicate. The boarding process was very chaotic with no groups."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "The crew is amazing! We have comfort even in the economy class."
Pros: "The Crew was very good. I was with my 84 year old father.And they handled his needs very well ."
Cons: "The food of course was sort of mediocre at breakfast. The eggs tasted like they were man made.oh well maybe that’s really typical. Otherwise all was fine."
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Pros: "Flight delayed 30 min. Customs in ORD overwhelmed by two planes coming at once. Missed my connection and had to stay overnight."

Cons: "I had no problems with this leg of the flight."
Pros: "Five stars good flhte !!!!!!!!"
Pros: "No thing at all"
Cons: "1- the aircraft from cairo to munich was so small that they didn’t allow the carry on baggage and I had to put it with the check in baggage. 2- the special meal ( muslim meal ) that I ordered was a veggie meal !!!!! With no meat or chicken at all , apparently they don’t know what the meaning of a muslim meal is ! It means to have halal meat , we are not vegetarians ! 3- my baggage didn’t arrive to the airport and I filed a report and was told that I will have them tomorrow and now after four days the baggage didn’t arrive yet and I was told that one of them is missing !!!!!!! I can’t hate them enough."
Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "The food was pretty dull."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "Service was good, got to change my seat last minute to sit next to my husband."
Cons: "No entertainment for the kids, changed the gate 2hrs before departing from A60 to A1 - not fun with 2 kids had to walk across the airport."
Pros: "The staff was so accommodating and friendly! Great trip!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "bad business class experience, requested assistance 2 but only one came that alsoafter so much hassel will never travel or recommend"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Food snacks were awful."
Pros: "Awesome crew and service! I would highly recommend flying with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Baby crying for the entire flight from Munich to Denver."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "Good entertainment options and nice choice of movies and TV. Complimentary drinks are good and service is frequent."
Cons: "Difficulty with Lufthansa's website made it so that I could only complete check in for one person in our party. When we arrived at the airport and they printed boarding passes, the Lufthansa agent re-assigned seats without asking or telling me and gave us all middle seats. Very poor form. Food was either average or bad, depending on what was served. Boarding is unorganized, with people lining up over an hour prior to boarding and almost completely ignoring their boarding groups."
Pros: "The leg room was definitely more than on a US flight, which I gravely appreciated."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic -- no rhyme or reason . Pasta dish and chicken dish were both low quality."
Cons: "Impossible to select seats online because of technical issues thus our family got spread all over the plane in middle seat. Our next connecting flight got cancelled without notice so we got booked on the next flight 3 hours later. My complain on their web site after this poor trip has been acknowledged automatically but completely ignored by the customer service."
Pros: "Everybody in bilbao was very helpful as I had a problem with the boarding pass that they solved, very thank full for the service"
Pros: "Nice seats and friendly staff"
Cons: "This was an evening flight and while we landed at Logan on time we had to sit on the tarmack for a full hour before we could get to our gate. After a cross-Atlantic flight this final hour on the tarmack was almost unbearable. On top of that, it was 8pm EST which felt like 2am for passengers from Europe. It was just a very long day of travel."
Pros: "Friendly crew, overall international flight experience was comfortable. Thank you."
Pros: "My coach seat on the upper deck was roomy thanks to the window cubbies on the A380. The flght attendants were friendly and very helpful. The A380's upper deck is noticably quieter. I throughly enjoyed flying on the A380. The food was also the best airplane food I've had."
Pros: "Long flight. Loved that we had two wonderful meals, hot cloth enough water and other services. If I fly overseas I will always choose this airline. It was wonderful."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Flight from Marseille was delayed. Very tight connection time to make the SFO leg of the trip (30 minutes). A Lufthansa representative met us at the gate along with another passenger and took us via van to passport control and then to a terminal far away from the one we landed. She was courteous and efficient. We get to the gate in time to board."
Cons: "My seat was in row 56, second to last row. The temperature was very cold. I asked a flight attendant to make it a warmer. They tried but to no avail. The flight attendant mentioned that aircraft model (now 15 years old) has had that problem that has never been resolved. Solution was wearing a hat and several blankets. Not good for a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "Day before the flight, Me and my husband did the online checkin as soon we got the email to ensure that our seats are together. At Milan airport, we verified our seat numbers again with the staff to make sure that my seat( which was assigned by Lufhtansa itself) is still the same and is Window seat. She checked and confirmed at the airport that my seat is window seat and there won't be any changes. At Frankfurt airport, while we were ready to board the flight, we were told that the system had assigned my seat to someone else even though i had the seat number printed in my ticket and verified it the same morning at Milan airport too. The Lufthansa staff member M.Hoy ( M.Ahoy) was not at all helpful to resolve the issue. After requesting him to give me another window seat or resolve this system issue, he behaved in a very disrespectful way. Even though it was airlines mistake in reshuffling my seat at the very last moment of boarding the light, he was not at all helpful and spoke to us in a very rude way. I am a regular flyer with Lufthansa/United flights and this was a very horrible experience. I am very disappointed."
Pros: "the staff and boarding service was good"
Cons: "The food was hard to eat and poor quality and flavorless"
Pros: "Great flight service, lots of good food, and plenty of fluids."
Pros: "You'r aamazing, great deals! Thank you!"
Cons: "The delay and the lack of movies. Seats are very small. I was sitting near a larger passenger and it was very tight. We had over two hours delay for mechanical problems with the plane."

the entertainment center did not work, upon request of resetting the device by me for 3 times. the device refused to work. the flight crew was not apologetic and did not offer any other solutions. such as moving me to another seat to accomodate their problem.

Leg room was really good.

Pros: "Everything except the rental agreement"
Cons: "San Salvador gate is to small, everybody on top of each other"
Cons: "This was the most uncomfortable flight of my life. We were packed in like sardines during COVID. This was the least amount of legroom I've ever had on a flight."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Not operating in any way like there is a pandemic going on. Both overbooked flights. Put everybody too close together and then spouted a bunch of social distancing. All words no action. No sanitizer or wipes offered. No amenities."
Pros: "Nice attendants was the only thing good about this flight"
Cons: "Flight was very late causing problems for connection. Forced to check carryon due to poor storage. Seat instruction were in Spanish. Magazine was in Spanish. This is America and can’t it be in English."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "The seat was super comfortable, because of o lot of place for legs"
Cons: "The crew sometimes seems not to be happy with the passengers"
Pros: "as expected"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The crew, the flight attendant was very rude"
Pros: "Seat was not comfortable"
Cons: "Need more room"
Cons: "Flight delayed three hours."
Pros: "entertaining system"
Cons: "food could be better, not bad though"
Pros: "Service and boarding was smooth and friendly."
Pros: "The flight crew was terrific, and the pilot provided good information on the cause of the delay, and expected deoarture and arrival."
Cons: "We were 80 minutes late leaving Portland. Fortunately I did not have a connecting flight and the late arrival was a nuisance and not a problem."
Pros: "Nice leg room in exit row"
Cons: "My travel companion and I encountered the most unfriendly and non respondent flight crew of all time."
Cons: "Great flight on time no issues"
Pros: "On time! That pretty much says it all. I think American did a great job at everything they had control of."
Cons: "Having connecting flights that seem like they are miles apart. I’m sure there is a good reason for this but it is annoying to have to change concourses at these huge airports."
Pros: "The free entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Too many delays that made me miss the original time I was to catch my connecting flight. Missed my appointment in Spain as a result..."
Cons: "Old overhead monitors for movies. Audio did not work at my seat."
Cons: "We booked our airline tickets at the same time and our seats were separate. This was the first time flying for my wife so she was very upset when we found out our seats were not together. We had to pay an extra $60 to have the seats moved to an exit seat."
Pros: "Was surprised at the selection of movies and music"
Cons: "Hard to be comfortable in economy, but it sufficed"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour, which would have made us miss our connecting flight back to our home destination. We switched flights in order to make it home at a decent hour and not spend our entire day and night in an airport. We arrived home and they did not transfer two of our three checked bags to our flight, thus making it highly inconvenient upon our arrival home with no luggage."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Sat on runway for 30 minutes before the announcement was made that the First Officer had called out. Deplaned. Then once we reboarded an 1.5 hours later, we sat on the runway for over 2 hours waiting to be deiced, then waiting to take off with absolutely NO TRANSPARENCY from the crew or the pilot. We were updated ONCE every HOUR. I missed a day of my vacation because a crew member didn't arrive on time. UNACCEPTABLE."
Pros: "On time boarding. However we had about an hour departure delay due to de-ice of the plane due to ice storm which just started but I am not complaining about that. I would rather the plane was completely safe for departure."
Cons: "We have to gate check roller bags due to size of plane. Also, little or no knee room. My knees were pressed into the seat back in front of me."
Cons: "Seats terribly cramped — a 6 ft. man will have black & blue knees after a 4 hr. flight!"
Pros: "This is a modern airplane with great features"
Cons: "The seats are way to narrow"
Pros: "Every thing. I am not rating it as excellent only for the 'Maxim' : "There is always scope for Improvement""
Cons: "Nil. No complaints what so ever."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "No own movie screen for a 6 hour flight. No snack/ nuts with drinks"
Pros: "Streamlined boarding process"
Cons: "Poor leg room and no video . Older plane."
Pros: "The newer plane is the only nice thing."
Cons: "This service is terrible. We had to run and practically knock people over to get to this flight. After being stuck in Dallas at the beginning of our trip. There is nothing organized about this company. And no concern for their customers. We heard different things from every single employee we talked to."
Cons: "Limited recliner Small seats"
Cons: "Multicity trip was cancelled because I was not able to take the first plane."
Pros: "Experienced a 4.5 hr delay to the destination. Family had to pick up grandson (Ibooked trip for him) after midnight in L.A. 2 hour flight delay coming back which pick up had to be re-arranged again by family. Family member flew to us next day via United without any issues. Dont book through this site or use American Airlines!!!"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Disappointed with the "Hot Box" (Bean Burrito type) cold & never heated up but still served...unedible. Real shame - food just wasted...unnecessary and just adds to costs of flights at end of day :-/ Customs & Gate in Clt delay could have been handled better. Continuously told us we were deplaning and then silence...several times...very frustrating after 9 hour flight. Better communication and organization in customs would be appreciated Otherwise, crew was very polite and overall good job"
Cons: "This was my first time flying First Class. Not only was my flight delayed but everything was changed last minute. My seats, layovers, EVERYTHING! I was better off paying for a regular seat. I'm a young African American and the stay treated me as if I didn't belong in First Class! Not to mention the last time I flew into LAX American Airline lost my luggage! I have proof to show! Absolutely ridiculous!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "we had to wait for the 4th flight attendant for almost 3h in la. The Crew at the gate wasn't even able to make proper announcements. The plane didn't provide charging stations for your devices, I would expect for a flight like this that you either have screens on each seat or you're be able to charge your devices"
Pros: "It he seats were very comfortable There was enough leg space Crew was excellent The timing was good"
Pros: "Left an hour late, but it was the airport's fault, not the airline's. Arrived very close to the original arrival time."
Cons: "I'm a bit confused by the airline's identity crisis. It was an Avianca flight, not an American Airlines flight."
Pros: "Getting to my seat was overall the best experience. Out side of the finally walking onto the plane and sitting down, over an hour late, it was less than mediocre."
Cons: "If the plane was on time and didn't run an hour and 20 Ish minutes late, it would have been fine, except for the blinking over head reading light that would flash in my face every 20/30 seconds that could not be turned off being due to, as the flight attendant said, "they all do that"."
Pros: "Flight staff was friendly"
Cons: "We were delayed 30-35 minutes due to a broken tray table, after we had already boarded."
Pros: "Arrived safely and captain had good communication."
Cons: "Gate agent closed door and left the gate at least 15 minutes before departure, so when myself and other passengers arrived no one was there to board us, then she got upset at us. Tray table in 11F was broken. Catering delayed the flight, and never showed."
Cons: "it was not clear that finnair was being operated by american airlines. when I arrived to the airport in Paris, they couldn't locate my flight on finairr or american. my flight was missed and the staff on both airlines (finnair and partner american airline) were soo unhelpful. I have never missed a flight, I travel for work, in the air, more than on the ground and this was the WORST experience I have ever had. I was super disappointed that even after all the mistakes, no one would help me find a new flight and I had to pay for another one. Even after calling finnair several times and pleading for some answers or help."
Pros: "I liked how efficient the landing was, and how quick food was served."
Cons: "We were not given a lot of information about takeoff and we left 2 hours late. Also, the staff was pretty unfriendly. A guy got sick and threw up, and a couple of flight attendants made a big show of it and made him feel badly."
Pros: "Muy buen servicio"
Pros: "Crew, clean"
Cons: "Flight delayed as we were pushing back from the gate."
Cons: "Lengthy delay due to a broken seat. Missed connection then the next plane had an equipment issue. Had to deplane after 40 min and wait on a new plane. Every flight has had an equipment issue causing a major delay. I'll never fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Full meal"

PlusPoints are useless if seats are so rarely available.

Apart from the delays in terms of departure times, the airline experience was so bad, given the medical incident from a passenger sitting at the back of the plane. I was so close to it, and was utterly disappointed by the failure of the cabin crew to control passengers from overcrowding the sick passenger and allow the crew to administer the necessary medical intervention. It all amounted to compromised safety at 30000 feet, and seriously more training on the part of the airline is required in this regard. The other issue I realised is lack of cleanliness and care on the part of cabin staff, with one lady spilling food next to where I was sitting and ignoring the incident completely. I had to ask another to intervene and for which only superficial help was rendered. This is not what I expected, but this is what I got and speaks volumes to a cabin crew which is all female, mature/elderly, and expected to be more hands on to problems of this nature. The food is terrible in economy class, with options very limited. I opted for chicken, but did not know that it had curry in it, so I could not eat my meal further, and so no need to ask for the vegetarian option.

Cons: "They overcrowded a flight in the middle of a global pandemic which shows they do NOT prioritize the health and safety of their customers."
Pros: "Love this airport. It’s clean and comfortable!"
Cons: "I had been told there was a restaurant and there was one tiny coffee bar with little to no food. Most likely covid related but still probably one of the best airports I’ve been to"
Cons: "The remote on the arm rests werent working correctly for the inflight entertainment. My menu button didn't work. It was stuck on ESPN. The armrest is really an awkward set up. I don't want to keep shifting and possibly nudging my neighbor. Wish they touch screen like Delta, American, Air Canada,etc."
Pros: "Fast and friendly"
Pros: "Boarding process."
Cons: "Food is not great. Seats are not every comfortable for a 10 hour flight. Need better cushions."
Pros: "Comfortable plane. I love United Express."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "snacks were wimpy"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, professional, and communicative."
Pros: "Attendants were wonderful!"
Cons: "Baggage claim time - but that's a Philly issue."
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "1. Super friendly crew 2. Plenty of space in Economy Plus seats"
Cons: "1. Very average food 2. Continuous problems with the entertainment system during the whole flight"
Cons: "My suitcase handle was broken"
Pros: "Didn’t make this flight."
Cons: "Didn’t make this flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew and on time flight."
Pros: "Staff was all very attentive. Funny when appropriate. And authoritative I might add. During taxiing a wayward child was loose in an aisle and got told to sit down over the loud speakers."
Cons: "Free wi-fi could be a game changer for the industry. "We" don't like paying for it, but love it when its free. Sandwiches were all stuck together. Mind you; we had been to Jean-Georges the night before so a comparison is not fair - apples v oranges. Not a fair equation."
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "Free streaming IFE is nice. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "3 independent instrument failures made us 2 hours late and I missed my connection."
Pros: "Service, space, and staff of course!"
Cons: "Entertainment is boring and tired, United use to offer better free shows and movies!"
Pros: "Repairs caused a long delay, they kept us informed but it was a hurry up and wait forever"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Long delays in both trips. 6 hours stuck in Munich & 24 hours in Luxembourg. Asked to get on earlier flight-was told not possible even though 27 seats open. Not possible to check in online and chose seats."
Cons: "In both airports I was wheeled to gates and left in the way of people coming and going. I tried to get the attention of airline employees and when I did they told someone else and so I sat for between 40-60 minutes."
Pros: "I liked the comfort of the flight and the cordiality of the crew."
Cons: "I did not like the packaged meal. It was less than satisfactory. The sandwich was decent, however."
Pros: "Air Canada seats were much more comfortable than the United flight seats."
Cons: "I had to leave the terminal and pass through security again. United did not let me reserve my seat on Air Canada. They did not even tell me where my connecting flight could be found."
Pros: "The check in process"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "No food or entertainment. Crew very friendly. Tony plane"
Cons: "Lost my luggage, ruining my trip."
Cons: "Noisy intrusive kids-clueless parents no help from crew"
Cons: "Disorganised with aggressive & disgruntal staff"
Pros: "Great stewardess"
Cons: "Entirely too hot in the plane"
Pros: "Nothing!!! It was handled in a terrible way"
Cons: "The way they didn't care"
Pros: "I like to the passengers on the plane werrhelpful"
Cons: "After calling United to change my seat to one in the same price category, I arrived on the airplane to find the attendants had no record of me having that seat. Which not only caused embarrassment for me and the other passenger but also held up the flight. Also this was the worst food I've ever had on a flight in my entire life even other United flights had much better meal choices."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled rerouted with Delta"
Cons: "Plane seating was tight"
Pros: "Ease of purchasing ticket online"
Cons: "The $230 change fee for a ticket that cost me $70. No recourse but to lose the money completely."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant under the adverse situation"
Cons: "Cancelled and automatically booked with no option for a refund unless I waited seven hours in line at 1 AM. Ridiculous especially given demver's proximity to the springs. WEBSITE NEEDS A STREAMLINED REFUND OPTION FOR AUTOMATICALLY REBOOKED FLIGHTS."
Pros: "More space than the previous plane. Slept 90% of the flight"
Cons: "The tvs didn't work in flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant took forever to bring me water."
Pros: "Boarding was organized and timely."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was patronizing."
Cons: "I was traveling with someone and the tickets were purchased at the same time but we weren't seated together."
Cons: "Seating is just cramped!"
Cons: "Bad snacks. Need biscotti"
Pros: "See statement above."
Pros: "Crew friendly and concerned"
Cons: "no magazines; no food choices toward the end of the flight"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth ans efficient. Crew was attentive and nice."
Cons: "I paid for 2hrs of wifi, yet was unable to access it as the service was "temporarily unavailable" for the remainder of the flight."
