Quicker drink and snack service
Flights departed and arrived on time at each destination. First time ever!! I was shocked and happy!
surprisingly , everything was on time, and work great! flights on time, arrives on time, etc
The seats are not comfortable, even for short flights. There is literally no food available on the plane.
The airport needs to have some type of shuttle for passengers who have to make connecting flights between Hawaiian Airlines & Delta for example. I’m 65 & my sister who was with me is 70, lugging our luggage from one end of the airport to the other was extremely difficult.
Cons: "Everything was great! Would love to be a loyal Delta passenger. I wish the prices were more competitive. Willing to pay more for the quality of experience but Delta always seems sky high!"
Pros: "Everyone was great."
Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "Can't understand why it was delayed"
Cons: "Had to check my bag yet others brought on two bin sized pieces. Had to get seat assignment at the gate and rep was rather abrupt with instructions. Smell of fuel in the cabin. In last row which was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "The space given in the seats is just getting ridiculous. The person in front of me reclined and hit my left knee. It hurt for three days even with my doing physical therapy and exercises."
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "I ordered two seats to accommodate my rate. I was moved after I checked in to another seat without notice. It was embarrassing to move after I was seated early and arrive at a set that I didn't fit in."
Pros: "Fawn on our flight from Atlanta to Newark was amazing."
Cons: "Basic economy is just another way for the airlines to provide low service and nickel and dime everyone while charging the same prices."
Pros: "Getting to my destination."
Cons: "Leg room, more room for carry on bags, coats, etc."
Pros: "On time, good flight"
Cons: "No power on outlets at waiting room airport, charge 2 dollars for earplugs"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 20 Minutes, after taking off late. Arrived to my connecting gate 10 Minutes prior to scheduled departure with no delta attendants in sight and watched my plane sit at the gate and pull away with no way to get on board. Now I’m waiting unnecessarily for 4 hours on another flight."
Pros: "Boarding, flight, landing"
Cons: "Baggage claim was unmanned Ground transportation was awful Delta & all Harrisburg staff was not responsive, for example w/baggage unmanned a sign said "go to ticket counter" when I got to ticket counter Delta agent didn't notice me in Sky Priority line for 5 minutes because she was texting on her personal cellphone."
Cons: "We were on the tarmac for almost 2 hours. It's probably LaGuardia but the experience was very bad."
Pros: "comfortable seats in comf+ but no pillow or blanket for 4 hr red eye? Come on delta"
Cons: "Gate agent was the worst in two years..never smiled, never thanked anyone and didnt call me by name or recognize my diamond status. Boarding was a fiasco with the pillars in too small of a gate. FA had too much coffee they kept main babin lights on way too long and kept loudly asking if anyone wanted extra drinks snacks....this is a redeye, people want to sleep!!"
Cons: "Late with no information"
Cons: "Disgusting smell to urine and else. It was a two-hour bad experience"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "There was no TV's on this flight."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants on this flight."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Flight attendants could have been a little more friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Pros: "Wi-Fi on the plane is a nice touch."
Cons: "The seats are packed so tight there's almost no leg room - actually there is no leg room when the person in front of me reclined their seat. Since we were advised to get there 3 hours in advance only to wait two and a half hours in what is quite possibly the most uncomfortable waiting room anywhere this just makes the cramped plane even more frustrating."
Cons: "I couldnt check in online and reserve my seats"
Pros: "Delta agents rerouted me in face of weather problems in Southeast so as to allow me to make my LAX to Sydney flight. Well done."
Cons: "Not enough leg room in Economy. I lucked out on transpacific leg with an exit row seat, everything else tight. Movie choices kinda limited and very US."
Pros: "Everything went well...on time, quick boarding and free gate check of bag."
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."
Pros: "At least they serve us dinner."
Cons: "The toilet was very sticky. over crowded and kids was crying all over the flight."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Cramped seating in coach. Think comfort not profit"
Cons: "Old 747 ER needs to be junked"
Pros: "My aisle seat on the first flight"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy. My standard carry on luggage did not fit the over head compartment."
Pros: "The turkey sabdwhich was tasty. Good movies."
Cons: "Telling me the doors were going to close & I couldn't use the restroom prior to boarding. Here I was starving from flight delays. In reality the door stayed open another 15 mins & people boarded with their to go food."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "I would never fly Delta again! What you have done to the leg room, seating reminds of living in a third world country!"
Pros: "gate and plane staff friendly, smiling and helpful."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no cabin service on short flight, no power in seats."
Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time"
Pros: "Got from point A to point B"
Cons: "nothing all was good as expected."
Pros: "As a frequent flyer, I get picky. Crew was awesome. Helpful and friendly. The wifi was horrendous and wouldn't connect"
Cons: "Individual seat space is small, nor do seats recline much."
Flight itself fine, big problem with KAYAK. Revised e-ticket sent in July stated departure LHR 10:55, arrival SFO 13:45. (a believable local arrival time given flight length and time difference). When we got to LHR there was no 10:55 flight to SFO and were advised that in fact flight LH2473 was arriving in MUNICH at 13:45pm, and that we would need to get a connecting flight arriving in SFO at 18:55 local time - over 5 hours later than expected. 1) you the booking agent made an error on the revised e-ticket you sent, omitting the Munich stopover and incorrect SFO arrival time. 2) I booked a DIRECT flight and 3) we had to cancel plans this end as a result, even though the team at LHR did a great job moving us to a later direct flight getting us in 2 hours earlier than the flight from munich would have.
My flight form Denver to Albuquerque was canceled without my knowledge and I had to spend 5 hours in Denver before getting on to NM. A heads up would have been nice...
Don't understand how a highly organized German system has no signage or employees to direct traffic on boarding. Either preferred or general - which means the line for boarding strung along 3 gates for over 40 minutes. As well folks let me through with documentation and then stopped me because someone along the way didn't put a sticker on back of my passport. Sticker shortage??? Finally- and my biggest gripe- if it is a government mandate for everyone flying to Germany to wear a mask , why did my associates not have to wear one on AA? It is an airline issue. And if the US doesn't mandate masks, ok for flying into Germany, but why in to US? Again, none of associates HAD TO wear masks. Get that Germans have a preference and respect that, but if I just had to pay 30 euros for a rapid test that said I was negative to get on the plane, why this added hassle imposed by airline - again not a government thing. Or if I'm wrong, then AA and BA are non compliant.
They ask for electronic vaccination status to be downloaded but then they ask to see it again!!! Whats the point of downloading?? Also economy class was allowed to board through business and were not told to go to a different line
Pros: "The crew is brilliant Punctual, spot on... 100% service delivery"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Cons: "All things were beyond airline control. Screaming children, weather delay, and moderate to heavy turbulence. Wind shear off the deck required pilot to punch through and stick the landing, but recovers well."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "They cancelled my ticket because I missed the second leg of the flight. They didn’t even offer me an option and told me to find my own flight home. I had to pay $1100 on another airline to fly home tomorrow. I will NEVER use Lufthansa again"
Pros: "The flight was seamless,appreciated the frequent food and drink service"
Cons: "The boarding was priority and then everyone else. Didn’t realize economy boarding had no real order."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Cons: "There was not enough room for all the people’s cabin size luggage. They allowed people to get on board with big coats once they’re in the plain they take off the coats and place them up. Those coats take the same space as a small suitcase. I asked the fly attendants for assistance and they didn’t even pretend to care about the situation. I had to put my luggage under the seat for the entire flight, which ended up reducing the very reduced legroom. What this airline is trying to do is; to charge passengers twice for cabin size luggage. This has been my worst experiences with airlines. Lufthansa is definitely an airline to avoid."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, and overly willing to help."
Cons: "The crew called ahead to warn our connections of our delay. Unfortunately, Lufthansa doesn't care about honoring their duty to paying customers."
Pros: "Family check-in in Frankfurt is superb. Economy Plus was a really great experience!"
Cons: "The fact that I can't use my own headphones and I'm forced to use the cheap airline-provided ones (with the dual plugs). Single biggest reason to not fly Lufthansa, because I can't enjoy the movies!"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and professional"
Cons: "The seats were too cramped, no chance to sleep on an overnight flight. In fact my back was quite sore from being cramped in the seat with no leg room and no under seat room for a small backpack. I’m only 5’2”"
Cons: "Very poor connecting flight information for check in. United connecting flight through Lufthansa has no information. Have to ask around airport and nobody seems to know exactly when United will open for checkin. Discover next morning it is only 2 hrs before flight, 1.5 hrs before boarding. Lufthansa made no effort to pass along their connecting flight information, they just drop all responsibility and say it is a United flight so offer no help. First and last time with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Spacious and quiet aircraft, lots of legroom in certain exit row seats. Friendly cabin crew. Compared to the loud and bumpy ride on the Lufthansa 747, the A380 was way better."
Cons: "Moderate delays at each end—waiting for transfer passengers delayed our departure half an hour. We made up the time en route but then sat on the tarmac at LAX because the gate was occupied. I think my seat mates missed their connection. They broke the handle on my rollaboard (checked due to stingy cabin baggage allowance)."
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "Nothing positive to report...NOTHING!!"
Cons: "Worse travel day of my life. I'll never fly Lufthansa again and never go thru Frankfort again. Lost luggage both ways. Awful experience!!"
Pros: "Nothing. But I did arrive on time"
Cons: "I will try to avoid Lufthansa if I can"
Pros: "Excellent crew, provided beverages constantly, meals were very good for airplane food, seats were comfortable for most of the 9.5 hours. Entertainment selections were more than adequate. Even the babies were quiet !!!"
Cons: "TV screens did not function consistently, had to be reset a couple of times. Plane was late boarding (but made up most of the time). Had to go through security a second time even though it was a connecting flight. Luggage got crushed in a carousel pile-up and took a long time to come out."
Cons: "Too uncomfortable for sleep, but that’s every economy flight now."
Pros: "The fact that the Crew was kind n helpful and we landed safely and on time. Like the security was great. Overall it was good!"
Cons: "The boarding Crew treated the passengers unfairly...your staff should learn how to board a plain...by starting: women with children n handicapped people first, the business/first class, the economy passengers...that's how you do it...there was no organization to board the plane and the ticket agent was wrong on the advertisements instructions. Get rid of cheap wine, our tickets are very expensive..you can afford good wine. I got a headache with your cheap wine... Your also not allowed to do early check in...with your system."
Cons: "The chicken was too spicy & hot for general public. You should take lessons from Swiss Air... food was delicious!"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Cons: "Nothung that i can think of"
Cons: "The customer service was horrendous...hated the entire experience"
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "Nice flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight."
Pros: "Decent flight. Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "We booked these flights expecting Lufthansa. Little disappointed to learn they were Brussels airlines. Inflight entertainment options and meal options don't seem to be as good. Flight crew was pleasant and fine. After learning it was Brussels airlines I went through their check-in process for families and requested kid-friendly meals, but nothing came of it. Slightly disappointed."
Pros: "This was a fantastic flight -- the crew were very friendly and helpful, the legroom was great for "regular" economy class, and the flight was on time. The direct flight was so much nicer with young children than having connections. Would fly again any time."
Cons: "I really can't think of anything to complain about... the touch screen in my daughter's entertainment unit was a bit flaky, but that's about it."
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: "The crew was friendly. I did not need to wait in line too much for use of restroom. The flight was on time."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "This plane was an airbus, while the plane I took to Europe was a boeing something. Economy was much more comfortable and there were great entertainment options. I also like the frequent brandy, Bailey's, and water service. The flight attendants were nice and at least appeared to care about the level of service they were providing."
Cons: "This probably is just personal preference, but I didn't like the meal options all that much. But that's about it. Mind you, I eat German food often in the States, so the type of cuisine wasn't the problem."
Cons: "The offer to travel the next day by giving up the current reservation for a price, making us wait for almost two hours and then telling us that we will be travelling the same day instead of the next day. Initially they requested us to help them as they were over booked with an offer and we informed all our relatives, later with the withdrawal of the offer we had to call everybody again. A whole lot of confusion , discomfort and mental torture."
Pros: "This was a short flight with only a snack and no entertainment like the onboard movie selections on the longer flight."
Pros: "everything on time on the right place with the right numbers ... perfect ;)"
Cons: "seats on LH435 from ORD to MUC too small and tight"
Pros: "My husband is very tall and had enough legroom to make him comfortable."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Cons: "No entertainment Slow boarding"
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: "The service was excellent, drinks, food and snacks were offered frequently, the crew is professional and friendly. This was one of the best flights I've experienced in a long time. Thank you!"
Cons: "I don't care for disembarking to a bus. Business class could have had larger seats instead of leaving an empty seat between people."
Pros: "On time and highly efficient as you would expect from the Germans. Airplane was clean and nice. Airport and boarding was very good too."
Cons: "Food left much to be desired but not horrible. They said they were short on crew staff (weird - first time I've heard of it) so service was a little slower than usual but not bad. Seats continue to get smaller and thinner which means less comfort for such a long haul flight. The seating arrangement is probably worst at this airline. I booked our seats and paid extra ahead of time, come to find out they changed the seat configuration and our seats sucked so we paid extra for nothing. Lufthansa really needs to fix the seat selection situation."
Pros: "The entertainment was great, service, comfort and food too."
Cons: "Choice of quality films could have been better."
Pros: "Everything is great. The airplane, staff, and their terminal at the airport"
Cons: "I can't find anything bad about me experience with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Boarding process"
Cons: "My whole experience with Lufthansa/united was horrible. We booked our tickets on kayak and it was a Lufthansa flight operated by United. When we went to check in at the united counter they told us there was no record of our flight even though we had printed our receipt which had confirmed ticket numbers. It took over 30 minutes for them to figure out they needed to call Lufthansa to get the ticket transferred and in the end blamed us for not doing that ourselves before the flight! I thought this was insane as I have flown with multiple other airlines and never had this problem. And then once it was fixed for the way there we still had problems again on the way back. Never flying United/Lufthansa again."
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.
Not having literally all of my flights get delayed would have improved my experience
Pros: "Flight attendant super nice."
Cons: "Small uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."

Pros: "I always enjoy the staff; they are always pleasant."
Cons: "Not being told about the 3 hour delay until I was already at the airport."
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: "the crew was great."
Cons: "quick flight. comfortable seats. lots of leg room"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Left an hour late and cabin lights were broken. They did offer some token of appreciation although not sure what it is yet"
Pros: "No surprises. Always informed of what comes next."
Pros: "Lost my baggage at San fransico and your connecting flights give you 30 min at most to get across an entire airport honestly I was so mad at the end when I finally got my bag I was missing a wheel of all things just poor organization for a business that takes in as much revenue as United does"
Cons: "The flight attendant was unusually pushy about the emergency exit. I am a military member who is fit and flys in the emergency row as much as possible. The attendant threatens to move me because I didn’t know what section of the aircraft the overwing exit was located."
Cons: "Long delay in Knoxville because of atc clearance issues and there is not much to do in the terminal. Only give snacks and water would of rathered a sandwich"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendant in back of cabin,"

Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "The staff were very freindly"
Cons: "They had a setup if you wanted to watch a movie you had to log onto your computer or other device, but you had to down load the United airlines app, but my IPad would not connect to download."
Pros: "boarding, flight attendant very nice"
Cons: "narrow seat, small aircraft"
Pros: "The attention of the captain with the passengers and that we arrived 10 minutes before"
Cons: "That it was direct from San Antonio to Brownsville. The Jet from Houston to Brownsville was very small."
Cons: "Purchased a non-stop flight leaving at 530 and arriving at 6:30 pm. After flight was pushed back to 830 pm departure, it was pushed back again to 1130 pm departure and 1230 am arrival. Rebooked through connecting flight and arrived at midnight."

Pros: "On time - small plane. Ground crew performed well"
Pros: "Snacks were good for a short flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and overbooked. It wasnt the first time the flight was delayed. Flight going was also delayed. Attendants seemed to be in a bit of bad mood but were overall ok i guess. It was a short flight so it didnt matter."
Cons: "Worst trip ever! United overbooked the flight, and then I got delayed in LAX and had to cancel my trip all together! No planes in to Duluth or MSP until Monday. Had to fly home to Monterey!! Totally pissed customer right now"
Pros: "Not applicable. Appreciate 40 minute flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight which didn't bother me as was due to maintenance. Couldn't hear the gate agent over the microphone. Updates of delay could have been more that just the initial announcement. Snack bag had 8pieces in it."
Cons: "Had to buy entertainment"
Cons: "I never made the flight. Our flight ended up being delayed for 9 hours, but after waiting for 6 hours I re booked my flight for the next day. The flight the following day was fine."
Pros: "I was never able to take the flight because of a significant delay in arrival in Tucson and subsequent arrival in Chicago."
Pros: "Get to Denver, they tell me I don't have a seat, they asked me if I wanted to fly out the next day because they over booked met three other people who had been there for 10hrs because they did the same thing to them! One girl told me they told her it was because we paid less then other people! A nice couple stayed so I could come home. I was pissed! My daughter flew into Houston, the flight was late getting in to LA, by two hrs, missed her connecting flight to San Luis Obispo, her sister had to drive down 4hrs to pick her up and drive back because she had work! Not happy!!!!"
Pros: "Everything was on time."
Cons: "Despite wearing a down coat, scarf, and hat, and holding my bag in my lap, I was freezing cold the entire flight. This was after the flight attendant let me move towards the back of the plane so I could be warmer than sitting up towards the doors. A December 6am flight with no heat? Ridiculous!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent as usual."
Cons: "Would love a plug or port at the seat to keep my device charged."
Pros: "This flight is always overpriced, but I really like it."
Pros: "Everyone was very polite and easy going. Definitely kept me comfortable(:"

Pros: "Normal things"
Cons: "Making us wait for 3 hours to take off. Did not offer anything in denver."
Pros: "The crew was competent"
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather at ohare despite the fact that many other flights were still going. First delayed, sat around for hours, then cancelled almost 3 hours post scheduled departure time. No hotel voucher provided. Rebooked, but not done correctly so when I tried to check in, it was discovered that I didn't actually have a rebooking, requiring additional calls and second rebooking."
Pros: "Easy process with no delays"
Pros: "Pilot was very nice!! Co-pilot too!!!"
Cons: "My flight to Dulles was delayed and I would have missed my connecting flight to Houston. I revised my flights to American. No alert from United that I would miss connecting flight due to delay"
