Narrow knee space

Flight delayed 50min

Lufthansa is a great choice! Would fly with them again.

Pros: "."
Cons: "."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Liked that you can see how far away and how much longer the flight was."
Cons: "Flights to be more on time"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Cons: "Lufthansa not taking any responsibility for allowing connection time to be so short. Everyone on the fight from London missed their connections!"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Deni, our flight attendant, was most attentive, giving Robert, who is legally blind, assistance with safety features if needed, one on one as we were seated."
Pros: "United airlines check in lady in Knoxville TN, She was efficient, caring and awesome. I also loved the air hostesses on Lufthansa flights, they found space for my bags on board and took care of me all flight long!"
Cons: "Lufthansa gate staff may be in need for a better attitude and not the one of a disgruntled child. I would have expected my 3 checked in bags to arrive with me in Cairo, they did not, so making sure the checked in bags arriving with the passengers can be an needed improvement!"
Pros: "We upgraded our flight from Frankfurt to business class--so worth it."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Pros: "Very comfortable. All very nice."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortable and things were falling apart"
Pros: "flight on time-good sevice including food tha I ordered in advance and all my luggage arrived."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "Other than being too late it was everything ok."
Cons: "We had a very late departure but it wasn't anything Lufthansa could control"

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "A male flight attendance made me feel uncomfortable. I sat in empty sit with number 3 instead of 4 and he asked me to check my number on my boarding pass. WIth an extremely directive and dictating tone in his voice he told me YOU SHOULD GO AND SIT to what your ticket says. It is VERY important to be sited, although the seats are available you should be sited where your boarding pass directs you to be."
Cons: "I realized that some people of their crew are extremely insane! I have never had an issue like this, with DELTA or AIR FRANCE, or KLM, or NORWEGIAN, or SAS If it was only one persona that I had to deal with, which it was on my flight from NY to Munich I would say , it was coincidence . One person is not a statistical point and accuse the whole Company. But this was repeated on my second flight from Munich to Athens. Then I said, this is not coincidence, it is a pattern that is repeated and not professional . NEVER AGAIN WITH LUFTHANSA is my decision and my recommendation."
Cons: "Delayed in Munich an hour late"
Cons: "Seats are too close together and seat really doesn't recline. To close to the seat in front and can't bend over to put your head on tray to sleep. Just to cramped up and I'm a small person 5'4". Very uncomfortable for a long flight!"
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "The crew was really great. So pleasant and helpful. And, it was nice this time as it wasn't too crowded!"
Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great crew good seat room"

Pros: "Seats on PE were comfortable, on time, clean flight."
Cons: "The worst crew possible, absolutely no concept of customer service, Last flight on lufthansa....so no more complaints Customers needs training on how to use the LOO."
Cons: "Bought these tickets almost a year in advance. Never given the option to select seats. Both my husband and I were stuck in the middle seats or not together on each leg of our flight. Food was horrible on every leg. Husbands tv did not work. I am petite and seats too small even for me. never again will o give this airline my money."
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "Liked the crew, the food, blanket and pillow."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport wheelchair service needs to be better administrated."
Pros: "service on luthansa was delightful"
Pros: "Loved the crew, much, much better than any American airline. Food was better than any American airline. Pleasant flight."

Pros: "Friendly crew, had row to myself, smooth flight"
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Pros: "1. The crew was very pleasant and responsive. 2. The entertainment selections were plenty, recent and without extra cost. 3. The food was nice (if you weren't having meat options). My travel companion was a bit disgusted by the meat. I enjoyed the pasta!"
Cons: "1. The seats were extremely uncomfortable without sufficient cushioning. It felt like sitting on a plank. My back still hurts. We also had to straighten up the seats during meals because it was so bad for the person behind. 2. Boarding is a bit disorganized. Perhaps try splitting the boarding process into zones so it isn't a mad house free for all after the initial boarders. 3. On my flight to Frankfurt, the plane was half empty, yet my seat was changed from row 8 where I would have had almost no one near me back to row 23 where they had cramped all the passesngers into one area of the plane. This was done without request or explanation."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Got two meals , very good service"
Cons: "It took 90 (ninety!) minutes to get my suitcase at SFO. What a shitty, second-world airport. "Love" the crt tvs playing awfully low-quality "welcome to the US" videos. Way to showcase Silicon Valley's technical advances. Laughable."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cancellation"
Pros: "Overall, the Lufthansa service was excellent. In particular, the food service in economy class was extraordinarily good."
Cons: "We were seated at the end of a row beside the entrance to restrooms at the back of the plane, and on occasion the space beside us became a gathering place for groups of passengers, talking loudly."
Pros: "Great service and comfortable bed for sleeping in business class"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Professional crew, easy travel."
Cons: "Close seating."
Cons: "No room in the seats. The food was poor. Pasta very dry tastless. 3 tbs if salad. One bite of desert."

same as from LUX … professional, nice.

I love KLM, its very spacious and clean and the landing is always very soft. Great Airline!

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "We got to Amsterdam on time"

Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Pros: "Easy to board and easy flight."
Pros: "Food was excellent, service from staff was friendly, and entertainment options were great."

Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"

Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Quick (relatively) flight."
Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."
Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pros: "delayed"
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"

Luggage handling. Arrived in Johannesburg without my luggage. Communication regarding lost luggage is basically non-existent.

A really excellent and comfortable experience. No wifi in my section of business class though - would have made it perfect.

The staff were excellent, very helpful and efficient

Upon purchasing the ticket, it stated that, checked bags would be $30 each, so I expected to pay only $30 for my second bag, being as my first checked bag came with the price of the ticket….instead, I was charged $75 for my second bag and not $30, like the price I saw… :-( very disappointing.. I was tricked.,.

Boarding and online chkin was very good, food was not to the expectations.

It was so helpful to be able to board the plane front and back. It makes it so much faster. It was also helpful announcements were made in French and English. I cannot thing of anything that would have made that short flight better.

Pros: "Poor"
Cons: "Poor"
Pros: "The crew was astounding"
Pros: "The seat was really comfortable and I was able to sleep the whole flight with no disturbance"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Staff Curtsy and overall gestures!!"
Pros: "Perfectly on time, no hassle, seat OK. This is the way I appreciate a flight."
Cons: "Food. No choice, three "madeleine" (sweet) cookies for all, no sugar-free (salty) alternative..."
Pros: "The seats were spacious and the crew was wonderful. The crew actually made the long flight more tolerable. Will seek out Delta/Air France for further international flights."
Cons: "Boarding (by bus) was a total chaos. I had to stand for about 50 minutes, either on the crowded bus or, after climbing with great difficulty three flights of stairs to a high jet-bridge (I am 76), standing there forever with 200 persons waiting to get access to the plane. Totally unacceptable. They started the boarding process early (50 minutes before departure), but passengers were allowed to actually board the plane at the time it was supposed to take off."
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "crew great comfortable"
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived early. The crew were all courteous and kind even to the man who was sitting next to me who seemed quite demanding."
Cons: "I am small but the seats seemed a bit too tight. The plane itself seemed a bit outdated."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "seats very uncomfortable, boarding was a mess in Paris, priority luggage was annoying and made us miss our connection flight (as well as numerous delays)"
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are a brilliant idea!"
Cons: "An explanation to passengers as to why there was a backup between the gate and the plane."
Pros: "The gate reps from CDG to MSP were professionals. The cabin crew on the Delta flight were exceptional! This was not my experience in Copenhagen with the Air France staff, they seemed to be self centered and rude."
Cons: "Delta please make excellence a priority in all areas of customer service. Set high standards for staff so customers know that you appreciate them and are ready for business. The world is at the customer's fingertips, let their first choice be Delta. When their are bad days, customers will understand"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Nice meal service and drink service throughout. Great choice of entertainment."
Cons: "Booked with my partner. Ended up sitting apart. Not good"
Cons: "WiFi"
Cons: "Better in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding. We actually departed earlier and then landed in Barcelona 15 minutes ahead of schedule. Overall a very smooth experience."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Very little room in economy class. For a 6'1" person, it's impossible to get comfortable."
Cons: "It was great trip thank you Air France"
Cons: "They lost my luggage :("
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."
Pros: "Leg space was great, food was delicious, alcohol served 3-4 times, and the in-flight entertainment was spectacular. I saw 4 movies and slept somewhat comfortably for once!"
Pros: "I like the service. They caring and give snacks, comfort and overall"
Cons: "None. I like everything"
Cons: "We paid for Business Class from JFK to TLV. The flight to Tel Aviv was in a small plane with 3 across seats that hardly reclined. We are most unhappy and will complain to American Express Platinum Card."
Cons: "Airplane really old. Cabin configuration economy was in front of economy plus. Just 1 bathroom for economy and economy plus. Economy plus seats old and uncunfuttable ( more than it should be )"
Pros: "Average"
Cons: "I leave my jacket in the hanger when I get off the airplane I realized that they didn’t gave it to me. I inmeadiatly tey to go back but I couldn’t I went to the counter and they said that there was noting on the plane !"
Pros: "The quality of service from the staff and their courtesy. A great asset of the airline."
Cons: "My luggage was left behind - this despite my being lifetme platinum."
Pros: "The noise-canceling headset is good."
Cons: "The premium economy seat is not reclined at all. The neighbor's seat is too much flexible. This is a maintenance problem. We report these problems to the crew, though there ignored... I should have chosen an economy class seat."
Pros: "Comfort, food and service are better than average."
Cons: "When stewardess opened overhead locker, something fell on my head."
Pros: "Offering a drink on such a short flight is appreciated albeit unusual these days. Crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped. Poor leg room also with.metal bars under seats that further. Limited foot room. Terrible options in movies."
Cons: "Not checking my carry on weight at check in then letting me walk all the way to security to then check my bag and tell me to go back to check in then the counter is closed and they tell me it's too late and that I need to get ride of my things so that my bag is under weight and barely making the flight"
Pros: "Flight was only 50% full. Room to spread out."
Cons: "Leg room cramp. Flight arrived late as a result missed connection home."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Cattle car accommodations"
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good."
Pros: "Chicako Párizs szuper , udvarias személyzet pontos érkezés."
Cons: "."
Pros: "Food, drinks, and general service on board were all very nice"
Cons: "Airport experience at cdg was atrocious. Took more than an hour to check in and it was a complete zoo."

Pros: "I like service of AF"
Pros: "It was as expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit tedious because we had to first board a bus to take us to the airplane."
Pros: "The plane is roomy and bright"
Cons: "N/A"

Not being delayed to arrive, and delayed for departure, and delayed to deplane.

Delay. Long wait in line. Poor communications.

Fully booked so the BA policy of 2 pieces of carry on falls down....

Pros: "No and no."
Cons: "Very crowded in.club class. Way lower standard for business class as compared to the other airlines."
Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."
Pros: "Leg room fantastic"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Cons: "Direct flights to and from South Africa to USA not via Middle East"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Seriously on an international flight between Linate, Milan to Heathrow, London PAY pounds for a hot coffee or tea."
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Almost everything. BA is simply an embarrassment."
Pros: "New Years flight... very special. Great staff and grear entertainment on board"
Cons: "The flight data was not showing... could have been interesting especially on a New Years flight"
Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly. Getting to leave the plane."
Cons: "Seats were the smallest since I tried Ryan Air. Boarding is ridiculous process of elevators, buses, and salmon stand-offs as people board from the front & rear with no guidance. Arrival was also waiting on buses before a 15 minute ride to the far side of the airport. No food or beverage is offered free. Not a pleasant experience in any way."
Pros: "The crew was enthusiastic"
Cons: "No m&s sandwiches on board, half filled tea cups (even when asking for no milk)"
Pros: "short flight, no issues"
Cons: "nothing of importance"
Pros: "The A380 is roomy with large overhead bins. Its quiet and smooth. Flight was on time!!"
Cons: "It was impossible to select a seat in advance. I could not even get to seat selection at online checkin. It was very frustrating. When I went to BA in London and Los Angeles they said it was responsibility of AA and when I went to AA in London & Los Angeles they referred me back to BA. Why can I not choose seats like on other airlines????"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "BA did everything right. Weather caused hours of delays on tens of flights. Airport was not prepared to manage the volume"
Cons: "Over 2.5 hours delay"
Cons: "If you want to reserve your airline seat (I'm talking a standard economy seat) you have to pay $34 per seat if it's 24 hours or more before your flight. Guess what happens at 24 hours? The airport takes over and you're stuck in the middle of a crowded 10.5 hour flight all because you weren't able to select your seat ahead of time. Just another money grab from a tanking airline."
Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "Was delayed"
Pros: "we took off and we landed"
Cons: "Checkmytrip kept giving different information about the flight. once on board with delay first officer said they would try to make up time. Soon it was all about air traffic control. said that FlightConnections would be working on flights for this with missed connections. not true - nothing done while we were flying, and landed"
Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."
Cons: "It was on Air Lingus not BA. No Entertainment -"
Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."
Pros: "The staff was great, friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "I thought the food lacked imagination, was skimpy and too hot. I burned my mouth several times. I really do not like having to pay for a booked seat. I have special needs at my age and so booking early is how I typically make sure I can access the bathrooms easily without climbing over sleeping passengers. I picked flight for the price, but in the end I should have stuck with Delta, KLM and Air France and got the extra miles as with seat bookings and only one bag allowance, what I ended up paying did not make it worth it. Oh well, live and learn. Seats were tight, anyone bigger than me would have really struggled."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "My wife and I having to sit in separate seats when there were seats available next to each other. Being charged excess baggage when one suitcase was weigh under weight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats didn't recline, no entertainment, no beverage or food service. Delayed leaving and landing and the ground crew couldn't find a working jet bridge further delaying the disembarkment. I almost missed my connection despite a 90 minite layover."
Pros: "All the normal stuff of flying domestic."
Cons: "The way that my brand new suitcase was damaged on the flight and BA just said that handles are excluded from bag damage. Thus, they can do what ever they want with your bag's handles, manhandle it and not take any responsibility. My suitcase was clearly damaged by the way it was handled since i booked it in till i received it again and they just said sorry...there is nothing we can do for you!!! Now that is is poor customer service."
Pros: "excellent, efficient, clean, professional"
Cons: "partnering with American Airlines is a crime and an offense."
Pros: "The craft, the crew, the food was excellent"
Cons: "Ackward media control"
Pros: "good movies"
Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"
Cons: "There should be an attendant at the entrance to the boarding area. Too many people try to line up and to into the queue before they need to. Either they don't understand the language or the procedures. There should be people walking around to answer questions on boarding procedures or better announcements in several languages. the Asians were extremely confused as were the Germans we encountered. They never announced for people with disabilities to get ahead of others. It was a big "casino" as the Italians say when everyone charges the boarding area. People could be put in groups according to where their seating is, making it easier for all."
Pros: "Online check in & boarding pass on your phone using BA app."
Cons: "Seats are quite cramped"
Cons: "1. It was raining in Milan when I departed. Clearly my checked suitcase was exposed to major rain because several layers of clothes were very wet when I got home. 2. I'm a senior citizen trying to stretch funds to travel -- paying extra for an early seat assignment is not in my budget. Logging in 24 hours ahead to get a seat was incredibly inconvenient--I happened to be in a museum and without WiFi. (It could have been in the middle of the night or on a connecting plane.) I then had trouble entering all the required data and was finally told I had to wait 24 hours to try again-- that made no sense because I had to be on my flight 24 hours later. As a senior citizen who struggles with using the internet, it is particularly difficult. PLEASE let people choose a seat when making a reservation WITHOUT charging extra. 3. I was shocked that I couldn't get a glass of water without paying for it!!!!"
Pros: "I had an entire row to myself, the flight was on time, and the crew was great. The views of the Alps below were entertainment enough."
Cons: "N/A."
Pros: "The space on the A380 is nice, comfortable seats, and the crew was very considerate"
Cons: "No between meals drinks (like water, etc.) or snacks left out on this 11 hour flight. The seats are still a bit close together... for the comfort of a long legged man behind me, I was not really able to recline my chair at all."
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."
Pros: "Sandwich was tasty, but had to pay for it. On short flight, that's not a big deal."
Cons: "Online check in was not available on 4 international flights, despite 24 hour checkin being advertised. Expect your seat preferences to be limited unless you pay $35-$85 per flight to pick your seat in advance."
Cons: "There was no direction when boarding, resulting in 2 lines of people from different direction trying to board! No entertainment at all. You have to pay for even water."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "No leg room at all. Felt like a sardine in a can. Not even water is free. Staff were horribly inefficient with the snack cart They finished 15 minutes before landing on a 2 hour flight!"

There was a two hour delay because of incompetence in scheduling fuel truck. Further, upon arrival in Roanoke, hand baggage was sent to baggage claim. We carry hand baggage because it contains valuable or sensitive materials that we do not want going through the baggage system. This is very poor and United needs to perform better.

Cons: "Suoer"
Pros: "The seat was terrible"
Cons: "If I had gotten my luggage at the end of the flight"
Pros: "The crew reacted good to the change of plane"
Cons: "Needed to replace plane because of technical problem, that should have detected earlier. The business seats are standard seats. No water through the flights. Very bad experience"
Pros: "Good seats"
Cons: "Boarding process and Entertainment options. Availability of Snacks would also been good"
Pros: "All seats were very comfortable and spots where I can view everything and crew were awesome."
Cons: "Local travelers should be offered even water."
Pros: "Got us there safely"
Cons: "Fight delayed more than an hour, much of that time we sat on a bus. Plane arrived late at the starting airport."
Cons: "The app and trying to find boarding details prior."
Pros: "too crowded , not organised enough"
Cons: "organisation"
Cons: "Would have been nice if you didn't have to pay for the soft drink."
Pros: "The ticket was affordable."
Cons: "It was not clear who was or wasn’t supposed to get meals so I only got a breakfast but no dinner. Also the flight was absolutely freezing and no offer of blankets was made."
Cons: "Better boarding process"
Pros: "This particular flight was parked at the closest bay to immigration at Heathrow. So a late boarding and arrival was made early through not having a mile long walk to passport control."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding with the plane load of people huddled around the entrance to the boarding area. No guidance from the crew on how to efficiently pack the overhead bins efficiently with passengers helpless to put their treasures into the overhead bins."
Pros: "comfortable leg space"
Cons: "I missed this flight due to my connecting flight being delayed for 3+ hours (not sure)."
Cons: "Seat and cabin temperature was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We got zero offer of beverages during our flight, even a cup of water! Glad we bought our own. It seemed like one of the flight attendants was in a flight with a customer during boarding."
Pros: "Not much. Flight was pleasant and smooth."
Cons: "They called us for boarding before anyone was at the gate and we all had to wait on a stairwell until they opened. It made no sense and seemed dangerous to have so many people waiting on the stairs. Nothing was served on an hour flight, not even water unless you paid for it. Never encountered that before on any other airlines."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crew was rude, including even the pilot, who was unbelievably rude."
Pros: "We loved the movie."
Cons: "I'm very disappointed because i wasn't allowed to travel back to the US from Brussels (Belgium). i was supposed to connect in Toronto but because I'm a foreign student in the US, I wasn't aware that i needed a Canadian Visa to transit in Toronto. so lost my flight and i hard to spend another thousand euros to catch the next flight that will connect in the US territory. I made all the call possible to resolve my flight issue and no one could help me either Brussels airline personnel or the kayak customer service. until today i didnt have not even a email to let me know what happen."
Pros: "Crew was polite, but..."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed unused to the idea that Orthodox Jews won't sit beside people of the opposite sex. This made boarding take longer than it needed to. The airline should figure out a way to streamline this process on flights to/from Tel Aviv."
Pros: "It actually tasted great!"
Cons: "Movie selection was weak."
Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "The fight was delayed and cause me to lose my second flight even though they were the same airline and the second plane was still sitting at the airport. It added 6 hours to my journey."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized. Halfway through the flight, the cabin smells like sweat everywhere."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding late. Good for sale-not even a cup of water free, staff rude, there is no entertainment"
Pros: "flight arrived safely"
Cons: "everything else. Tegel is a mess, but also this Brussels Air / Lufthansa flight was tightly packed with absolutely no service for anyone not in the first 12 rows of the plane - more than half did not even get a drop of water"
Pros: "Long flights are never fun It helped that the crew was helpful and pleasant Food was ok but there could have been more offered It was an 8 hour flight and there was one meal an hour after take off and then just a very small snack and drink an hour before Not enough water was offered throughout the flight"
Cons: "Crammed seats, not very clean, took pictures, very dirty."
Cons: "Was surprised that the food was on sale !"
Cons: "The flight never took place due to a delayed flight from Hamburg to Marseille"
Pros: "The team was nice, the flight took off on time and arrived a few minutes early"
Cons: "Even though I'm a star Alliance frequent traveler status holder, and the status grants an extra bag on economy class I was forced to pay for my first checked in bag. Furthermore, since I assumed I'll be getting my checked in luggage for free (as it states on the miles and more website) I didn't pay for it in advance a fee of 35$, meaning they made me pay 65$ in the airport."
Pros: "Flight was delayed and we had to spend time Waiting both in the terminal and the plane. But crew was very nice!"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have been given a free snack or some water while waiting. We got a tiny chocolate which was nice but didn't make up for the waiting time"
Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary"
Cons: "Wish there had been a place to plug in phone or other USB stuff"
Pros: "Alles goed"
Cons: "The delay (due to weather) that caused me to miss the connection."
Pros: "the cabin crew was wonderful. We were delayed by half hour on board they kept us informed and the service was excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was in crammed area in between easyjet flights. In brussels they parked at the international gates and then an overfull bus took us to the arrivals. Is brussels airlines training fast to become part of euro wings?"
Pros: "pleasant fight..."
Cons: "long flight (it was far through no fault of Brussels Airline"
Pros: "great flight... great experience"
Cons: "...the girl in my row threw up in secret during landing"
Pros: "The plane took off a few minutes late but arrived on time."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport at 4:30 for 6:25 flight and there were only 3 open windows to check baggage for 4 different airlines. There were over 200 people in line extending out the door and no one was present to explain what was happening. Soon additional clerks arrived and the line began to move, but it took 45 minutes. The gate area was not large enough for all the passengers and there were seats for only a few while we waited and waited."
Pros: "Tons of food"
Cons: "Terrible in flight entertainment selection"
Pros: "The food, efficient crew"
Cons: "Awful boarding process, one person alone for all the passengers with another 3 around doing nothing, which caused the departure to take place more than an hour late"
Cons: "Departure delayed for unspecified reasons, most of the passengers like me had connecting flights and it was stressful"
Cons: "the airbus apparently has warm spots, and could not avoid being too warm for international flight. Once arrived in Malaga, Spain, no signs whatsoever telling me to go to different baggage belt to find my luggage."
Cons: "Brussels air used united Airlines for this leg of the trip. They canceled all the flights to my destination due to weather. However other airlines did make it there just fine. I think that they canceled the flight just because it was not full. I had to spend the night in the airport. The flight in the morning was overbooked. No one should fly UA if they can avoid them."
Pros: "Since this flight it not all that long it went well overall. The crew seemed good working together and were very organized and professional."
Cons: "airline seats will never be comfortable so that is always my biggest complaint."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly; food was decent; seats were not that comfortable and a bit too close ; in flight entertainment was okay; bathrooms okay but could be cleaner"
Pros: "the same"
Cons: "the same"
Pros: "Delightfully, there was enough leg room - didn't quite feel like a sardine."
Cons: "Bathrooms were not very clean."
Pros: "Flight attendants very responsive and all staff friendly."
Cons: "THE AIRPORt!!! I give their handling of the difficult problem they faced a zero out of ten."
