Since we arrived so late it would have been better if they had allowed those with a tight connection to disembark first."

Cons: "The plane temperature was too hot from boarding to landing"

Passport control in Frankfurt took a long time,luckily the plane was delayed and we could make it in time,the crew was very nice,they kept bringing drinks to keep us hydrated.Although the flight was delyed we got here on time.

I was traveling with a young child and the flight attendants were rude and unhelpful when simple requests were made like an early cracker or cookie to help distract him while everyone else was boarding. Also, my wife received dirty looks from an attendant when she asked if she could get by while holding our crying infant. They made us feel like a burden instead of a paying customer. The food was really sub par, especially the breakfast sandwich; cold, soggy veggie sandwich with no flavor (zero seasoning or vinegar or oil) and as mentioned the bread was cold and soggy wet. Also, there seemed to be something wrong with one of the bathroom’s ventilation, the smell was terrible throughout the entire flight. In the past Lufthansa had a good reputation for customer service, they are actively destroying it with how they currently treat passengers. If our return flight is as bad we will never fly Lufthansa again.

Flight attendants were very rude.

United couldn’t issue boarding pass at the start I have to rush through Frankfurt service desk to get boarding pass while connecting

Dear Lufthansa, thank you for the excellent flight. We arrived early which really helped us with our connection. Crew was so nice!

Lost my luggage

An hour and a half late, which forced me to miss my connection to next flight.

The airport in Munich was horrible with accessibility. We had to go flights of stairs holding our bags, it was real exhausting and difficult.

It was a better experience than the Mumbai flight

Pros: "Great staff , amazing dinner, and the entertainment screen size was best"
Cons: "Seats could be a little bigger"
Pros: "The take off and landing was peaceful and on time"

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"

Pros: "Standard flight and comfort."
Cons: "Food was absolutely beyond horrible...and the crew would run instead of walk down aisles to wherever their dedtination was."
Cons: "No WiFi, seats had no cushion"
Cons: "The plane was kept at a ridiculous hot temperature the whole flight. There were no air vents above your head and it was god awful uncomfortable for 9 hrs. On our return flight they lost all of our luggage from our whole group of people traveling together. 8 bags lost in total."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Crew"
Cons: "You cancelled. Cost me lost lodging, missed connecting flights and a day of my trip."
Pros: "Crew was hospitable and flight was clean."
Cons: "We paid extra to have a bassinet as we were traveling with a baby. The entire row (a family) behind us was very sick, coughing, sneezing, and blowing their noses the whole flight. As we were concerned for our daughters health, we asked the flight attendants if we could lmove to the bulkhead that was open at the front of the plane. They wanted to charge us $500 EACH to move, even though the seats were open. One of the flight attendants even commented how terrible it was for our baby to have a row of sick people behind us, yet they refused to move us. Fast forward, our daughter ended up getting sick during our trip to Florence, and now my husband is sick. As such, we’ve had to miss out on things during our vacation. It would not have been difficult to move us to empty seats in the front of the plane, so we could use the bassinet we paid for. This small gesture would have made our flight and our trip much better."
Pros: "On time-well organized!"
Pros: "Nothing"
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"

Pros: "Lost during the flight from LAX to Frankfurt, flight number 451 Lufthansa. Reward offered If found. Please email me if you have any information! Thanks Margot Strong"
Cons: "My wife has an I797 document. Lufthansa didn't recognize it and I had to book her a business class flight on Qatar airways."
Cons: "Expect to pay $85 euro for a carry on bag that they will ask you to check in. This is our returning trip with the same set of bags for the round trip to Paris. At the gate we were asked to check in the other carry on bag which we bought right before the trip making sure it fit the new small size req. Still that was put into check-in. We ended up with no carry on luggages with us boarded. Only to find quite a lot of bags that are much bigger than ours were allowed to be in the cabin."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "Great crew very attentive."
Cons: "Plane was old. Toilets were an issue. Entertainment centers were slow. Time to retire the, 747's"
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: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "The crew we had was very impatient and irritated quickly. The flighy attendent name was Jorge. Starting at the beggining of the flight before we took of I asked him about the head phones. One child had one on tye chair and I asked him if its suppose to be on the seat or given later on. He said it will be passed later and then with a patronizing manner he gave another head phone set and said: "I guess we havw an emergency". On the flight, every time he with the food and drinks he just stood there next to me talking over my head with the passenger begind me. Very uncomfortable, especially when it happens 6 or 7 times. When asking what drink we wanted ( the first time), i replied apple and orange juicewith no ice. He replied, with a patronizing manner "this it European company, not American company. Here we don't put ive if you do not ask for it".The incident that bother me the most is one that involved my kids also. My daughter (3 years old) was a bit scared of the flight, tired and did not want to sit on her chair. We tried to keek her on the chair buy she started crying laying down on the floor infront of our seats. Jorge the flight attendant saw her and told me to put her on the seat. Not in a manner I expect out of soneone in the service industry. I told him we are working on it and we will have her on the chair as soon as we can. When I said that he got irritated and a bit aggressive. For no reason the situation became hostile. The flight attendent on the other side (do not know his name). Can over and asked us what we needed amd if we need help. I told the other flight attendant we need 5 minutes and he said OK. After a few minutes she calmed down. Anotger passenger asked Jorge what beer it is and he replied, with contempt, " its German beer, its good"."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive. Our flight was delayed twice, once in Frankfurt for late luggage and the ground crew left without pushing back the plane, then again in Seattle for a plane on the tarmac on fire. A 10 hour flight turned into 14 hours but I still enjoyed it. There was plenty of leg room and the seats were very comfortable. The entertainment was very enjoyable and the meals were satisfying. For such a long haul Lufthansa made the time flyby."
Cons: "The crying baby a couple rows back. Also some smelly passengers that have poor hygiene."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Lufthansa took great care of my two cats transport abroad. They went overboard in my estimation and along with partner Adria Airways I couldn't be more grateful,and so are the kitties, for the wonderful care. ."
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: "Timeliness Politeness Good food and as much wine as desired A little more leg room would be nice but better than other airlines"
Pros: "Aircraft, crew, drinks"
Cons: "food, unfortunately:( I usually don't complain about food. This time around though, the chicken was not good, and the breakfast was also just okay. For long haul flights, I wish they started installing seats that reclined back more. It's impossible to rest in the currently standard economy seats. I'm ready for new inventions in this area."
Pros: "this flight was short and sweet!"
Cons: "Don’t get the egg salad breakfast sandwich. It’s got more turkey and cheese than egg salad."
Pros: "By luck, I had a seat between myself and the other person in my row. It would have been tight, otherwise. Crew was friendly and polite."
Cons: "The seats on the flight were placed very close together - felt very constricting. Takeoff and landing were a bit rough."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Free BBQ DINNER"
Cons: "Just about everything"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and helpful. The cabin was clean and seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Aircraft interior was a bit dated. Entertainment was via handheld device either your own or one provided by the airline."
Pros: "Really disappointed as my bags was not check thru.It was rechecked at London and British airway charged me for my baggage. I want to make sure that my way back to Oslo London London San Diego has no charge . It is an international flight and I am allowed 23kg one checked bag ."
Cons: "Damaged one baggage, and delayed arrival of other baggage for 2 days that forced me to cancel a following trip."
Cons: "Seat pitch was too tight, especially when the person in front of me pushed their seat back."
Cons: "3 of the crew Members were extremely rude... snarky remarks when asking very simple questions... We are supposed to have a good experience as a costumer. Not my fault the crew might be tired or having a bad day."
Pros: "Free tv which is rare"
Cons: "I had selected my seats ahead of time and they weren’t kept. Day of I tried to buy a seat and it told me there were tech issues and I had to go to a front desk to check in/purchase. Well all that got me was the very last row, middle seat. No recline and seriously no leg room or breathing room once the person in the row ahead leans back. Crew was not helpful. Not to mention, the security line was outrageously long and I got to my flight just before it left only to find out my seating arrangement and be presented with more disappointment. Took over an hour where I’ve never waited more than 20 minutes in this airport (I fly often). Didn’t have time to go to BR or grab a snack Then my second flight was (again another middle seat) way too warm. The attendants said “there’s nothing we can do”. I was so nauseous and uncomfortable the whole time."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Before the flight boarded the crew had to be paved. They were busy chatting at a different gate while the whole flight had to wait for them. No sense of urgency. Very unprofessional. We had the front seat in first class. All night long the crew were talking loudly- difficult to sleep. They should be conscious of the passengers"
Cons: "Boarding crew did not realize I had priority boarding and split me up from my wife. Not a big deal, just annoying."
Cons: "delayed/not on time"
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Overbooked flight. Had to check in carry on for not having any space available"
Cons: "The original booked flight was about 12 hours before the rebooked flight. We got up at about 2:00 am to leave for the airport at 3:30 am for a 6:30 am flight. We were all packed and booked our ride and shuttinlpg down the computer at the last minute when we noticed an mail after midnight telling us the flight was cancelled. We called and were told there was nothing they could do, due to connections and this was entirely their fault. Approximately 12 hours later we took a “red eye” thus arriving a day late for our hotel and car reservations. We were charged baggage fees and not sure if our priority boarding will be refunded."

Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "The crew looked very bored."
Pros: "Staff at SAN was good helpful. Check in was seemless."
Cons: "Wishing that they would serve something to drink — even if I would have to pay for it. Flight attendant gave me wrong directions and I left for another terminal while my carry on luggage (which had to be checked) was still at the gate. I had to wait until it arrived at baggage claim."
Pros: "The friendly and attentive flight staff."
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew members, they were very nice and smiled despite it being so early. I also enjoyed that they mentioned about the free movie watching option if you have the AA app."
Cons: "I didn't like that they didn't offer any snacks such as pretzels or cookies. Other than that, it was a very comfortable flight."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants and nice to kids"
Cons: "Being held inside the plane for a total of 5:30 hours before taking off. Even if there were several concurring factors, it it necessary to find a better procedure in order to avoid keeping passangers inside a plane with the prospect of taking off in the next half hour repeated every half hour! For the ones of us traveling with children it is even worse, and becomes a real nightmare."
Pros: "Smooth flight- communication from the pilot, free beverage, movies, what more could a person ask for"
Cons: "No leg room."
Pros: "Service in coach was nice and attentive."
Pros: "The duration of the flight, nothing to do with the airline"
Cons: "I was forced to check a bag in when I had flown previously the week before with the same carry on. $50 spent for nothing in my opinion. Per the supervisor over head bin size does not change yet my bag was "too big" like I said I had flown literally 4 days before this trip and had no problems with my bag fitting nor did any of the flight attendants say anything. I am just annoyed. Also I didn't know that I would fly American as it's through Alaska originally, maybe that was my lack of attention to detail. The carry on situation is what irritated me the most. This is also not the first time that I've had a problem with American Air."
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "No food or beverage service"

Pros: "I initially booked my flight via Kayak for a cheap no hassle price"
Cons: "My initial booking was with Iberia Airlines and a few days prior to my Flight was switched over to American Airlines. Had i known I would be flying with AA, I would have opted for a more expensive option as I've a great disdain for AA. My flight from JFK was not the model aircraft I was promised and thus did not have ac chargers or Wifi in the plane. In my opinion, I was bait and switched via Kayak"
Pros: "I likes that I was able to pick my seat for the same price."
Pros: "Very timely. Boarding, take off, landing - all on time"
Cons: "Their restrictions for carry on size... had to check my small suitcase because it was over their size limit. I was able to carry it on on my trip going (fits perfectly in the overhead bin) but on the way back it was too big.."

Cons: "Rude flight attendants, filthy plane"
Cons: "No choice in food. Flt attended said he would try to find a sandwich or snack left over from coach but he never offered anything."
Pros: "Good."

Pros: "The flight schedule"
Cons: "The hardens of the seats. Rather seat on the floor"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had to cancel my flight and call the company. Was talking to a computer for 30 min before I finally talked to someone. It cost me in fees to basically cancel my flight which ended up being just as much as my entire flight ticket. Got refunded a total of $12 to use towards my next flight. Never flying or booking a flight with American Airlines at all. Kayak couldn't even help with accommodations. Southwest is the only company that will actually hold those credits for you. Everywhere else is just trying to scam you."
Pros: "Seats are the most uncomfortable seats ever"

Pros: "Fare good"
Cons: "Old plane, everything terrible because of seat size and spacing"
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: "It was an uneventful flight."
Cons: "My seat didn’t seem to go back as much as the seat next to me. That made sleeping a bit harder."
Pros: "Price was reasonable"

Pros: "Comfortable seats Great raspberries and blueberries. Delicious."
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: "Vegetarian food options! Crew, especially Kiaren, was lovely- polite and attentive, and it was a very bumpy flight, so they had to work harder than usual."

Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"

Cons: "$100 just to choose a seat ? $100 for a 2nd bag? A Kellogg's bar for breakfast? Shame on them."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."

Pros: "Great food. Ground staff were very accommodating."
Cons: "Flight crew attitude. Cramped seating."
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "Gold muffin."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence so only business class got drinks does not make sense how is it that turbulence only stops economic people from getting drinks."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Crew is lazy and rude. I had paid for extra legroom seats and it was not honored. Dreadful!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient and the crew was friendly and very helpful. The one flight was on time, but the other can be excused because of a technical fault on the plain. Safety is priority #1 so although a 3 hour delay was not nice, i'd rather be safe than sorry!"
Cons: "The food was absolutely appalling on both flights... We received a cheese snack. It was an old sesame seed bun ,with a very thin, small slice of cheese which you could hardly taste on it. With that they placed cucumber, that does not add to the taste of the dish, but only makes the bread soggy. There is also a piece of lettuce on that is past its crunchy freshness it is supposed to have. The last ingredient is sun-dried tomato that was the only ray of light for a poor effort of a snack by BA. I can truly say that during the past year BA's in flight food service on local flights, are on a downward spiral and almost in the dumps."
Pros: "very comfortable seats and crew was nice"
Cons: "it was an overnight flight so people wanted to sleep. took the crew till like forever to finally turn off or dim the lights..but soon after, people opened their window and sun was coming it. not sure what these idiots tried to see outside as there was nothing. sun made it hard to sleep because it was way too bright. other airlines make sure that windows are closed during overnight flights to ensure everybody will have a good sleep instead of getting woken up by the sunlight in their eyes. wish british airways would do the same. everything else was good, excellent service too"
Pros: "The lounge at San Diego was good. Plane was punctual and only took 30 minutes from touching down to get to the long stay car park."
Cons: "Plane was very old. Entertainment system slow and live maps would not work. Its a pain having people stepping over you to get out of their seat in business class. Toilet was pretty disgusting at the end of the trip after one passenger was sick."
Pros: "Non-stop"
Cons: "No air flow, very stuffy and cramped. When people recline seats it makes it even worse but everyone reclines on a 10 hour red eye."
Cons: "The crew serving our area were terrible. Don was very rude to my elderly mother. There was a female attendant with long blond hair who was rude to another woman who was making a kindly statement. I would not choose American Airlines again given another choice."

My seat was so old, the cushion was worn down to the point of feeling like a bucket seat. This was really bad..."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The staff was very kind."
Cons: "Flight was uncomfortable. They forgot my food and drink. The attendant sneezed on me without covering her mouth, my tv didn't work. The plane was dirty. I asked to be moved up to any of the 10 open seats in business and they said they can't. It was actually one of the worst flights I've ever taken anywhere in my life."
Cons: "That the Airline choose to take Russsian paid load, cargo. And decided to off load the Luggage of 25 passengers. Some of them even had connecting Flights. Luggage tags were not matching with the names, so it became difficult to actually track the bags. Not funny..."
Pros: "New plane fantastic cabin"
Cons: "There was a fight but nothibg to do with the flight crew just some passenger with mental issues"
Cons: "They didn’t announce when boarding started/what zones were to go."
Cons: "The whole thing was a disaster. I lost my connection flight due to incompetence from the Ethiopian airlines representative"
Pros: "I took a roundtrip to Addis Abeba, Ethiopia from Washington, DC. The trip was 13 hours there and 16 on the way back (I think that included a refueling stop in Dublin). There was plenty of food and beverages provided throughout the flight - usually every 3 hours or so. Blankets, pillows, and several movie/entertainment were provided."
Cons: "I would prefer the the main cabin lights be kept off longer."
Pros: "The food was delicious"

Cons: "I can’t fault anything on this flight."
Pros: "The friendliness and willingness to assist passengers when they notice one facing a challenge"
Cons: "The chairs in economy do not give sufficient leg room especially for tall persons, this would present a challenge on long haul"
Cons: "My phone was stolen on airport premises"
Pros: "the air craft was very good and the comfort is good no complain..."
Cons: "i did'n't like some of the cabin crew the way they are ....and am very disappointed from kinshasa to my check in i did ask a lady about my bag, she told me i will get my bag to cape straight, and i did ask her two times about the bag, she keep saying the same thing i will get my bag to cape town, so until now i haven't find my bag yet, the number they gave me from the airport no body pic up the phone, so i don't know what i can i do to get my bag......if you can hep me in this mater please contact me on my email or on my cell number 0027 78 470 6195. thank you your best regards."

Cons: "Old plane Left 1 hr late No entertainment Adis is an old filthy airport"
Pros: "Great crew, decent food"
Cons: "Airport in ADS was very basic. Was hard to find a descent toilet"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"
Pros: "I liked the interaction of the cabin crew with the passengers. They were helpful and responsive."
Cons: "I was disappointed with the limited entertainment options on board."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The Ethiopian Air flight crew are outstanding at their work."
Cons: "Not enough water. The water is doled out in small cups."
Cons: "It was a night flight (~4-5 hours), however, 80% the time the lights were on... people did not want to eat/drink... and get disturbed constantly by the crew. We just wanted to sleep. Without lights"
Cons: "Seats were dirty"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew very kind and made me feel comfortable"
Cons: "Old 767, with not comfortable set up and no individual TV set."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Food seemed of poor quality."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food was horrible. My TV didn't work and although I asked for it to be reset several times, the crew kept forgetting. The flight was supposed to be 9 hours, but we left late and it was 11+ hours. I understand things happen, but the crew gave no explanation for the delay or elongated flight. Last, but not least, when we landed in Newark we waited 2 hours for our luggage to come out. We landed at 9:50pm and didn't receive our baggage until 11:50pm. My friend and I were not even the last to get our bags. Overall this was the worst flight experience I've ever had."
