Chaotic boarding Food barely edible Premium economy? Not much of a difference on Lufthansa Entertainment console waa full of glitches Never again, Lufthansa!
It would be much improved if the crew didn't force me to ride with my seatback up on an eight hour flight. What’s the point of a reclining seat if you’re forced to sit in the fetal position?
I paid over $1500 for the flight. I requested a refund, but all they gave me in return was $100.
I can't honestly describe this flight because my partner and I were unwillingly kicked off of it. We paid full price for our tickets and were confirmed and on time for our departure. However, we were not given seat assignments. When we went to the boarding gate to remedy us, the attendant literally shooed us away saying that the flight was overbooked and we were in standby. After boarding ended, we watched as people who were late for the flight were allowed to board. Then, all of the other standby passengers except my partner and I were permitted to board. As the plane departed the attendants repeatedly told us that "this is how airlines work"--which is to say they overbook us and our flight is not guaranteed. We were reimbursed a payment that wasn't even a quarter of what the flight originally cost us. We were also out up in a hotel room that we were told was downtown--it was 3 miles from the city center with no access to a nearby train. Today we were forced to go through security and passport check all over again for a flight we have been wait listed for. So we had to make this torturous trip back to the airport to hang in tedious uncertainty. I'm not sure when and if we will get home. I'm not sure how many times we will have to relive this airport check in and rebooking nightmare. Lufthansa is hands down the worst airline I have ever flown with and I would not recommend them to anyone.
Baggagen i Frankfurt ankom så sent, at jeg mistede mit næste fly og måtte overnatte 2 dage i byen indtil den næste fly til destinationen!
Flyet var forsinket - både i LAX og i Frankfurt - dårlig information
Nice airplane, quick boarding, excellent crew. The entertainment choices are very poor comparing to previous trips with LH. Food was horrible, neither one of us ate it.
Plane delayed and we missed our connecting flight.
Fik ikke min kuffert med fra München!! Kæft det er ringe service!
Fik ikke min bagede med fra München!! Det fandme for dårligt..
Forsinkelse fra Beirut. Tasken nåede ikke med
Fordele: "Crew was professional and helpful."
Ulemper: "Seat was narrow for business class."
Fordele: "I had a connection flight which would not be for another 11 hours so I left the airport to get some sleep coming back the same carry-on I have with me now cannot come with me they want me to pay 40euro. In the meantime the flight is 40% empty and plenty of over head and yes is the same size of plane I came in the first place. However the agent was nice after I explain my situation she not charges me."
Ulemper: "Same airline coming from one place have different methods it’s a bit confusing."
Ulemper: "Everything went well"
Fordele: "Boarding was crazy and confusing. Ground crew poor communication and rude"
Ulemper: "Lufthansa burde presse lufthavnen i Frankfurt til at ge bemanding imsilkerhedskonteollen. Kl 6.10 i morges tog det 35 min i business køen og mindst 50 mini economy køen"
Fordele: "flyturen i sig selv var fin men var forsinket."
Ulemper: "Flyet var forsinket så jeg missede forbindelsen til CPH i Frankfurt. Det kan ske. Blev omboket til tidligt fly næste morgen. Sådan måtte det jo så være. Men at skulle stå i kø som business pasager i 55 min for at få hotelvoucher og nyt boardingpass var for meget. Economy havde endnu længere kø. Skikkerhedstjek næste morgen i Frankfurt tog 35 min for business og op mod 1t for economy!"
Fordele: "Well, maybe except of these "preferred sitting" arrangement. The sit was in front of open space and restrooms. Constantly people were standing and waiting for the restroom. Their butts were literally at the "preferred sited" passengers faces. I felt, I would be way more happy in a regular sit."
Ulemper: "Such sits should not be declared preferred and cost more."
Fordele: "Free drinks. Two hot meals during flight. Lots of entertainment choices. Extra storage bin under window which doubled as large armrest. Ample legroom. Live sports on TV"
Fordele: "Crew was good. Nice meals. Good entertainment..."
Ulemper: "Budget seats are a little close when the person in front of you leans back, but not the end of the world."
Fordele: "The crew was awesome, super funny, excited, and helpful."
Ulemper: "The seat was incredibly uncomfortable."
Fordele: "Pilot kept us informed throughout the flight."
Ulemper: "Onboard services."
Ulemper: "Delay for both leg trip."
Ulemper: "Maden er kedelig og der var ingen valgmuligheder."
Fordele: "More spacious seating. Crew was happy, nice and seemed to care. Good entertainment choices."
Fordele: "service much better Dennis was excellent and attentive!"
Fordele: "Speed of boarding and de-planing. They are very efficient with staying on schedule, which is important. No one likes hanging around in airports or on planes. Also, my server ran and got me a special request of wine after meal when the choice was Bailey's or Sherry. That was kind of her."
Ulemper: "The announcements are frequent, slow and long. The food was alot of carbs. Nothing was bad, I just got a terrible headache and swollen ankles. Not the airline's fault, but it was hard to enjoy the last flight for these reasons. Also, water poured ahead of time on trays on 2 occasions instead of seeing them pour it. I was sitting next to a coughing sick person so I wanted to cover my beverages and food as soon as possible. My sound on video didn't work all the time. It kept cutting off. Tried my husband's headphones, but didn't help."
Fordele: "Stuttgart to Frankfurt was good.. ."
Ulemper: "Break between the 2 flights of mire than 6 hours."
Fordele: "Upstairs deck for economy is a small space but is relatively quiet. Boarding was relatively quick through electronic gates where you scan your boarding card. Flight attendant was very personable. She was checking some passenger names as some seemed to have switched seats and remembered mine for the rest of the flight. Something you usually get in business class but a first for me in economy. They also came around several times during the flight with water/juice, and snacks. Entertainment was ok. A mixture of newer movies available."
Ulemper: "Like all economy seating not much space especially when the person in front reclines their seat. This makes getting in and out of the seat a little difficult. Food a bit limited. 2 main meals for this flight (lunch/dinner) - chicken or pasta for the first one and beef or pasta (again) for the pre-landing meal. Also the attendant didn’t know the translation of the pasta dish from German to English so that was a bit disappointing. One thing to note. I flew Hamburg to Frankfurt to connect to the San Francisco flight with a 1 hour layover. You need to go through passport control in FRA and then I hustled to get to the gate. They were boarding as I arrived but maybe 10 minutes later and I would have missed my flight. No issues with the airline just a cautionary note on the layover time. I would likely book an earlier connecting flight to give a bit more time."
Fordele: "Friendly flight attendants, good wine, good entertainment (which I actually don't watch), beautiful airplane, A 340, especially the downstairs restrooms."
Ulemper: "Very uncomfortable seats, minimal leg room, mediocre food."
Ulemper: "During the main meal many many passengers had no option for the main dish.. Only vegetarian dish! Many passengers didn't eat."
Fordele: "friendly staff"
Ulemper: "poor sandwhiches, dry bread. Lost my suitcase when arriving in Billund - got it late next day"
Fordele: "friendly service"
Ulemper: "poor sandwhiches, dry bread"
Fordele: "Attendes very keen in attend Crew increased the speed to repair the delay"
Ulemper: "Delay due weather"
Fordele: "Crew is very nice"
Ulemper: "Overcrowded and late flight"
Fordele: "Everything was on time, the flight crew was unbelievably friendly, and the flight was empty which made it comfortable and very relaxing!! Highly recommend."
Fordele: "Individual screens for all seats with a varied selection of entertainment options. Plenty of room under the seat for my carry-on. (It helped that no one was in the seat next to me.) Beverages were offered frequently. Smooth flight, smooth landing."
Fordele: "The crew was friendly and respectful."
Ulemper: "I wasn’t able to get my TV device to function properly"
Fordele: "Nice airplane, good crew, nice bite to eat."
Fordele: "I love how Lufthansa has always been on time for me. That is why I fly with them when I can."
Fordele: "good flight hardly any turbulence. Good food/drink choice. The crew was helpful and courteous."
Ulemper: "The flight was scheduled way, way too close for a comfortable transfer since the second leg of the trip was to go overseas having to go through 3 different queues for passport, boarding and security lines. Need more time to pass the long lines and still be able to catch the connecting flight. Not a smooth connection."
Fordele: "Lufthansa når det er bedst - turen var en bevidst fravalg af Airfrance der også flyver fra København til Alger - og dette fravalg kan anbefales, hvis man ikke har svært ved at komme tidligt af sted..."
Fordele: "SAS når det er bedst - for det var faktisk SAS der lagde fly og personale til..."
Fordele: "Huge, new plane, lots of helpful crew, personal entertainment screen, chairs laid back more than typical"
Ulemper: "Window arm rest didn't move up, boarding was crazy because YYZ airport doesn't have the format to hold lots of people, how to board was a bit confusing, and turbulance."
Fordele: "bad service"
Fordele: "The flight was smooth, the service excellent, very friendly crew, and great selection of movies."
Ulemper: "I typically enjoy Frankfurt airport but perhaps because of a construction, not this time. There was endless walking to get to the gate for the connecting flight that wasn't supposed to be all that far. After about 20-25 walk, we finally arrived to .... the train station that took us to the next terminal. Really? It takes 20-25 to just get to the train when walking straight without the train shouldn't be taking any longer? In addition, our (checked-in) car seats were not transferred and never made it to our final destination, so we had nothing to put the kids in for the ride from the final airport."
Ulemper: "Flight got canceled and never got new flight! Also never got money back!"
Ulemper: "Everything was good not great"
Nothink to like. Everything could have been better.
Service and information about turbulence
Since the BUD-TLV flight got cancelled a week ago, I never made it to Israel. I have postponed the trip by a week. Also on the new flight by WizzAir there was a delay. Horrible airlines.
We have to be 45 five minutes waiting inside the airplane beca something happens in Marsella with the air control.
We couldn’t land in Mykonos, so landed in Athens without getting any further informations how to get to Mykonos then.
I received an email that the flight would be delayed for few hours. For that reason I arrived only one hour later from the original departure, still 3 hours before. The check in was closed and I was able to bring my big suitcase at the gate instead. I already paid 90 euros for that as a part of my initial reservation . At the gate I had to pay additional 65 euros. I will never again fly with Wizzair.
Cancelled with short notice
It was delayed for borderline and flying
Vi rykkede gate 3 gange, blev næsten 2 timer forsinket. Jeg endte med ikke at komme med pga de havde overbooket. Helt forfærdelig og kaotisk oplevelse. Jeg skal nu finde et andet fly hjem flere dage efter
Fordele: "The crew was ok. The seats no conmfortable."
Ulemper: "Every time the same problems. Bording we have to wait almost an hour and then all the people have to wait for the bus in a very Small place(like animals) then at the bus... waiting in a full one untill someone says ok to ride.."
Ulemper: "Uncomfortable seats"
Fordele: "Absolutely nothing"
Fordele: "I was at the gate. Before the door to enter the airplane. The Hungarian crew wasn’t telling me that they are closing the gate or going to close it. They completely ignore me and let me stand there and at the end I see the door close in front of me, 2 meter from me and they told me I mised flight."
Ulemper: "I lost my money and I had to buy new flight with other company. Wizzair crew at budapest was very rude and didn’t take responsibility for the mistake they did. They could just say they are closing the door but nobody did. 2 meters from me and after I passed all security they ignored me completely."
Ulemper: "Weirds sounds near first rows -- like compressor working or something"
Fordele: "Prices on in flight purchases"
Ulemper: "Boarding was ridiculous, check in lady had no idea what an infant is and how their own app works. Suggested us to use the e-gate with an infant and angrily put us at the back of the cue. The infant wanted to breastfeed..."
Fordele: "The seat not so comfortable but good"
Fordele: "I liked that we were not late and that the late coming priority guests were told to pay attention next time. Take off and landing were both nice."
Ulemper: "Boarding was a little slow and we were somewhat late."
Ulemper: "Better organization on the boarding process, i.e. separate lines for priority and normal."
Fordele: "The flight arrived ten minutes early at our destination."
Ulemper: "Extremely small and uncomfortable seats even for a small person."
Ulemper: "Did not fly. They wanted $100 to check my bag. I flew another airline."
Fordele: "I liked how the crew on the plane worked. Very nice."
Ulemper: "I didn't like the tedious boarding process when we were all herded into a very confined space. Also there was a cabin baggage issue that came up that might have been avoided if the new policy would have been made more obvious during the ticket purchase process."
Fordele: "The air hosts and hostesses were very polite and courteous."
Ulemper: "The flight was delayed by an hour which meant we missed a connecting bus journey. The space in the seat is very limited and cramped, I was very uncomfortable in the chair with my knees pushed into the back of the seat in front. I am 6ft 1in which is tall but not that tall. Anyone taller might not be able to get into the seat at all. There was a problem with the website so we couldn't check in online and we had tried to change our flight a few days earlier but the website again didn't work, we tried to call a call centre whose number was on there, didn't work."
Ulemper: "I went up to the check in desk 4 hours prior check since this was a connecting flight.I asked the employee when can I check in,she told me 1 and a half hour prior boarding,when I walked back the same person told me I have to pay 35 euros for not checking in online.I told her that I have been flying for about 20 years but I have never been charged for checking in at the airport and I also told her she should have told me when I asked her hours before.She just ignored me and gave me a shitty attitude at the Frankfurt airport.I was expecting a professional costumer service,like that I'm being used to by other airlines,but it was a total disappointment."
Fordele: "The price"
Ulemper: "The borsing from terminal 1 is should be highlight The man in the check in and bording wad not nice at all. He didn't answer any question. They took our hand bag. We couldn't take it to the plan and no one explaon why."
Ulemper: "The flight was delayed and there was even no information about it. Gate number was changed after boarding time and we didn’t hear any appologize not even receive some meal vouchers or food on board. We arrived more then 1 hour later- I can not evalute this as a good service."
Ulemper: "Lost luggage. 3 days since and still no luggage.And they don't have a customer service phone number that I can call. Very dissapointed. I guess that's what you should expect from a low cost flight company. I will never book a flight with them again."
Fordele: "Cheap flights, priority boarding."
Ulemper: "No meal included, no entertainment provided"
Fordele: "I asked for a cup of water for my child and they gave me a bottled water. Then they charged me 2.50 euros. Their credit card processing machine was not working properly, which was frustrating: the flight attendant got frustrated and had to come back again until she can process my payment."
Fordele: "Pilot flew well Cup Noodles available to buy"
Ulemper: "1h+ delayed No information from the staff or crew (only one apology from the pilot) Left waiting in multiple places including outside the aircraft No updates whatsoever on estimated departure and arrival"
Fordele: "The staff and flight were top knotch . Could not fault them ."
Ulemper: "Nothing to dislike ."
Fordele: "Purchased priority boarding for a change which was nice to be able to not have to jump in the queue quickly. Boarding was fine and the crew were very friendly and professional. The extra legroom seats over the wing provided a good extra space."
Ulemper: "The cleanliness of the plane was not good, the carpets were fraying and the seats were old and tired. The seats were positioned too upright and there was no option to recline the seat so it was a very straight seat for 2hrs on the flight."
Fordele: "Flight left on time"
Ulemper: "The airline does not have kiosk check-in. You are checked in automatically, and if you buy through a third party, your boarding pass is emailed to you. Never having flown this 'unique' airline before, we did not know the process. At the check-in desk, the clerk told us that if we couldn't show him our boarding pass, he would charge us 30GBP to print them. He was a complete jerk. After no help from him, I was able to figure out that we did have them as attachments. Never again."
Fordele: "cheap, on time"
Ulemper: "no reclining chairs, no free water"
Fordele: "cheap, on time"
Ulemper: "no reclining chairs, no water free"
Fordele: "Nice crew"
Ulemper: "My bag was 6cm too big, so they charged me at the airport. After checking their website, the airport overcharged me, and the gestapo who was checking had less customer service manners than my old French teacher, she was a...!"
Ulemper: "It was a full plane ride but they didn't seem to be boarding on time? After checking in we scanned our passports using the machines and then we were in what I thought was the boarding area so we relaxed and waited by the screens in a coffee shop. But when our flight gate was announced there was another passport control to get into those gates with a big line which threatened to delay our boarding. There wasn't enough room for everyone to put their bags in the overhead locker which meant there were even more delays and it felt a bit rushed to get off. When we arrived I was queuing down the stairs to get to the queue for passport control which took about 45-60 minutes to get through with no toilets. I was also charged 40 euros per person for not checking in and printing the boarding pass which is my fault, but the charges do seem excessive."
Fordele: "The ground crew in Varna were a thousand times better than Luton. Excellent flight and service...even with an hour delay."
Fordele: "Non stop"
Ulemper: "Very late. Disorganized boarding. Seating and shortage of luggage stowegev"
Fordele: "I use Wizzair very often .flight is always good.Pilots and crew are very well experianced.so if turbulences there is still trust in flight crew .today is very misty and cloudy in London .Very good landing in these bad conditions.i want to Thank all team of the crew."
Ulemper: "Turbulences.It is sad that wizzair charges very high cost large cabin bags (especially on holidays time is bags different price than other months.)but other companies as Easyjet and ryanair allows one big and one small bag for free on board"
Fordele: "The weather was nice."
Ulemper: "The boarding was announced 30 minutes before the beginning of the procedure. All the passengers were standing in the queue, without any possibilities to sit down. At Luton there is no connection among the announcements and the actual status of the boarding of a particular plane."
Ulemper: "Because we booked through Kayak/lastminute it was impossible to add luggage - so cost of one suitcase was same as cost of flight!!!!"
Fordele: "Brand new planes - on board crew was pleasant and the flights were smooth and on time."
Ulemper: "Ridiculous size restrictions on carry-on. If you can pack your clothes in a wallet, then you should be able to carry on at no cost. Only the smallest of bags will meet the "free" requirement. Website is awful to attempt to online check in. Crazy that they charge for check in at the airport if you cannot get their site to work. Customer service phone call also costs a quid a minute. It's almost as if they are proud that they screw you if you encounter any difficulty or you've made a mistake in the complicated boarding pass emailing procedure."
Fordele: "On time."
Ulemper: "Nothing much."
