Pros: "a320 was comfortable"
Pros: "We had a Lufthansa pilot sitting with us on his was back to Frankfurt. He was definitely good company and taught us a lot about how the airline worked, his family's history working with airlines, and life stories. The flight definitely went fast thanks to Daniel!"

Pros: "Space in cabin, friendly crew and nice food"
Cons: "Shorter stoppage ;)"

Cons: "The brownies for dessert were terrible. Maybe fruit next time?"
Pros: "Staff were excellent. Helped me with storing my insulin in the fridge."
Cons: "Departing the plane into steps to z bus carrying heavy bags with no help."
Pros: "Short flight but staff very attentive, food good."
Pros: "Helpfun plane crew"
Cons: "Flight got delayed. We got put ln differnt flight thru san Francisco. Another flight got delayed. When we got transfer no one told us we have only bearly 1 h to catch the next place to Germany. They assured us we will make it twice. We missrf the plane to Germany over 30 min. San Francisco airport horrible. No one gave us any information. They didnt know wfere is what. No one helped us."
Pros: "Staff was really good"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Pros: "Everything except that cookie!"
Cons: "I liked everything except the cookie. It reminded me of the low quality supermarket American cookies, way too sweet and flavorless. They used to give little sandwiches, excellent in quality!!! A cookie is good too, but a better one would do a great difference! It was early morning, who would eat a sugary chocolate chip cookie for breakfast? But otherwise, I would fly with Lufthansa again in a heartbeat!!! Thank you!!!!!!"
Pros: "Nice big plane, good/frequent beverage service."
Cons: "Didn’t arrive on time. Breakfast was weird and flavorless."
Pros: "One of flight attendants lent me her phone charger to charge my phone which absolutely saved and they were just generally very pleasant and easy to interact with."
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful without waking up passengers wjo wanted to sleep."
Pros: "Poor customer service dealing with bag delayed for 5 days, almost all of my holiday was over by the time the bag came and I was promised my bag would arrive on day 2, 3 and 4. Didn't arrive til 5th day"
Cons: "Late baggage, incompetent staff who each told me a different lie about when the bag would arrive"
Pros: "It was one of the best flight experiences in my life. Flights on time and suitcases delivered immediately."
Cons: "Incorrect advice from check in staff at Dublin re transit visa requirements"
Cons: "between lunch and supper snack one isle had only one water serving and my isle had none. So for 6 hours we had no water serving. This is why I gave crew rating OK only. Also the supper pizza snack was horrible. By comparison, United gives full drink cans so they last longer. I suggest Lufthansa also should serve full drink cans in long flights."
Cons: "I was not allowed to take my cabin bag and was forced to check it in at the checkin counter. The reason mentioned to me was the flight is small. Contradictorily, travellers after me in the queue were allowed to take cabin bags."
Cons: "The crew didn't seem particularly interested in helping anyone and worked hard to avoid eye contact. This was an unpleasant flight at best and given the option I will not likely fly Lufthansa again if given the option. I wish that I had better news to report from this flight. :("
Pros: "Movie selection, food, drinks"
Cons: "Lack of information on arrival (where to go, customs, etc.)"
Pros: "Flight was on time. We boarded and left on time. Flight attendants were friendly and courteous. I was happy to get a complementary sandwich and drink on such a short flight. We arrived at our destination earlier than expected. Seats were no frills, but decent. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Boarding is stressful. A free for all. I wish they would announce and board one section at a time. I'm traveling with children! I don't want extra stress of people being so pushy. Also,on arrival the bus back to the terminal was similar."
Pros: "Best trip and crew that i ever had"
Pros: "It was all great!"
Pros: "service on luthansa was delightful"
Cons: "I was denied boarding on the Dublin to Munich leg of my connecting flight from Newark to Munich. My ticket was booked through Lufthansa, but the transatlantic leg of my trip was operated by United. When checking in with United in Newark, I received two boarding passes, one for each leg of the trip. I arrived on time in Dublin for my flight to Munich and tried to board the plane for Munich with the boarding pass I had printed in Newark. After scanning my ticket, the Lufthansa employees at the gate informed me that they had no record of me or my plane ticket in their system. I showed them the email confirmation for my ticket, but they still could not find any record of my ticket in their online system. The employees seemed more concerned with boarding all passengers as quickly as possible than assisting me. After being denied boarding, I had to go back through passport control to change my flight, and ended up getting to Munich nearly 6 hours behind schedule and missed an entire day of vacation. A Lufthansa employee told me that out of every partner in the STAR alliance, United is the ONLY airline they have had this problem with. I find this inexcusable, I will be AVOIDING ANY United/Lufthansa connecting flight from now on."
Pros: "Lufthansa crew is the best"
Cons: "I didn't got the seats i asked for in the check in."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight delayed by over 3 hours, inflight entertainment did not work"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and eager to help, as I was traveling alone with a baby"
Pros: "The experience was fantastic, can not critique at all. They made a 14 hour flight a great experience and even a 5hr layover be relaxing. It will be hard to travel with other companies now"
Cons: "It will be hard to travel with another airline"
Pros: "Fantastic new plane and great entertainment options."
Cons: "Too bad you're now charging for wifi. A little disappointing considering how long the flight is."
Pros: "I liked when I thought I had my new booking."
Cons: "When I found out that I was a week late for my flight. Argh! Stuck in the airport at the moment."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Pros: "I appreciated the advance boarding for families traveling with younger children. Plenty of time to settle in with the kiddos."
Pros: "Good service except added an extra flight to my trip and"
Cons: "Pilot strike rerouted added a flight and 12 HRs"
Pros: "New crew on first flight but they we're even"
Cons: "Not much. Left sitting on a plane for over an hour & 1/2. Then taken into a door where I illegally entered the country. My passports seized. No other flight available to Dallas. Sent to Newark, NJ & missed the next flight to Dallas because Lufthansa lost my scooter. Someone pulled it by a wire and it doesn't run correctly. VERY BAD EXPERIENCE!!!"
Pros: "the crew was good"
Cons: "the food was poor"
Pros: "The price, the service, the food."
Cons: "The sardine can."
Cons: "2 1/2 hour wait while boarded then missed flights in toronto. Toronto airport a mess! Unclear directions and procedues."
Pros: "Crew, food and enterteintment were good"
Cons: "Boarding was to messy, sits were extremely tight, cabin was too warm and sits does not reclined enough to make a comfortable sleep time"
Cons: "I wasn't even on this airline my booking reference said that I was. I had this airlines flight number I go to the gate to check in, and then for me I'm on Air Canada. This was a mass from the start I will never use this airline or Air Canada again they ruin my login and told me it's still usable we had a delayed for three hours on the plane. Never never again!"
Pros: "Roomy flight, professional crew, great service."
Cons: "Check in with an extra bag or overweight baggage is cumbersome. You must first check in, then take bag elsewhere to pay fee, then take bag back to check in."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 14 hour. No one at the gate to inform on transit passengers. Air Canada office were couldn’t care less. I booked Lufthansa flight and Air Canada was very unfortunate partner. Would never recommend Air Canada and wouldn’t use them by choice"
Cons: "2h delay because of technical issues"
Pros: "Took off early; landed early. Helpful crew and a good amount of food and beverages were served."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online, then waited in line at the counter for 45 minutes to then be redirected to AirCanada counter, where I then had to walk back and forth across the airport with their representative to have them 'find' my ticket, which was supposedly lost. It would have been nice to be informed via email, which counter I should check in at and also, confirmation that they had my ticket. Fortunately I showed up 3 hours early, because I needed every minute of it."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by almost 3hours and I missed my connecting flight in Toronto and had to wait another 3 hours. Air Canada did not seemed to care about my difficulties at all."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Long walk to connecting flight. Buggy didn’t turn up"
Pros: "Reasonable food"
Cons: "One suitcase did not arrive. Not sure when will arrive"
Pros: "That we arrived in Toronto and got to get off the plane."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours. The rows are way too close together to be remotely comfortable, and the seats themselves are tiny and barely recline. Being 5 months pregnant, I was uncomfortable the entire flight. The "entertainment" that you have to download an app for didn't work, and particularly stung knowing how much we paid for the flights, and that other airlines simply put a TV on the back of each seat that is easy to connect headphones and view. The food on our previous flight had been so terrible we didn't bother on this trip, but it looked equally awful. My husband was in the aisle seat and the flight attendant repeatedly and without warning hit him with the cart. The flight attendants varied in level of friendliness, but the ones in our row rushed through service, and did not give us the options the other row had (ice in drinks, veggie or meat options). All in all, it was kind of a terrible flight experience."
Pros: "The flight crew, the price and the bags arrived."
Cons: "While the flight crew was great, the rest of the employees on the Toronto side were awful. Our plane was delayed from Dublin so most of the plane missed their connecting flight. Once off the plane they only had 2 people working rebooking and 2 working bag issues even though there was plenty employees around. After an incredibly long line, the gate agent was very rude. He barely acknowledged me, wouldn't look at me and just shoved my new ticket at me and said next. I tried to talk to another while waiting an extra 4hrs for my next flight and all she did was shove a business card with numbers and said if I had a problem to call one of those numbers and then rolled her eyes and started talking to her friends again. I saw another couple from my flight being passed around and getting rude treatment as well. Another I talked to said they will never fly Air Canada again. I know it wasn't their fault our flight was late but a little compassion and good customer service goes a long way. I had to spend $15 on dinner that I wouldn't if I had made my flight but they gave another couple from my flight $10 vouchers for food. So inconsistent! I also paid $100 extra on my ticket to sit closer to the front of the plane since I knew I had a short layover (which didn't make a difference) but they just gave the same seat to the girl next to me for the same reason. When I asked for a refund on the seat cost they just blew me off. To sum it up, the flight crew was great and very friendly but all the ground employees were awful and really need to improve on their customer service skills."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and Crew was friendly. The Captain was giving updates when appropriate and even was friendly when the passengers were disembarking. It seems like he really enjoys his job and that made my trip nice. I liked getting the blanket and pillow on every seat. It was very nice not to have to search for them."
Cons: "Didn't have the Air Canada app so couldn't access WiFi to download app for the entertainment. It might be helpful if the airline would tell you ahead of time so you are prepared. Also, no real description of food offerings. Would be helpful if there was a description beside chicken or vegetarian."
Pros: "Constant supply of food"
Cons: "No entertainment on seats"
Cons: "Poor airflow on plane."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very economical; bland minimal food; no complimentary wine. Flew with Air NZ to auckland in April; food and wine offered throughout flight. Flight attendants didn't smile or engage with passengers; treated service like a job they had to do"
Pros: "Empty seat between us"
Cons: "No movies. Had to load app for entertainment. Then WiFi never worked"
Cons: "No entertainment and poor seat selection process"
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth flights"
Cons: "limited leg room"
Pros: "Nothing because it didn't happen"
Cons: "When I got to the airport, the attendant notified me that my flight had been exchanged. No one notified me of this and I was still under the impression that my flight was scheduled as my itenerary in my latest email. It took two hours to figure out that United had changed my flight and booked me on a different one. Once again, without notifying me. Thank god they changed my flight to a later one or I would have missed it. By the time we figured out what flight I was on, I had to sprint to a different terminal because check in was closing in 20 mins. I arrived at the check in kiosk with less than 5 mins to spare. The experience was terrible and customer service from each Kayak, United and Air Canada. I also injured my back while sprinting between terminals wearing a heavy backpacking backpack. Would not book through Kayak again."
Pros: "Seats were ok but a bit cold all the way."
Cons: "One hour late leaving, no reason or information given. Food was awful with green sauce on chicken and celery bits in milk for salad, the connecting flight was cancelled and the option was another flight in two days. The only flight going later that evening was full and the next day was full also they said. An hour later a bus service was offered leaving in ten minutes which many of us raced to catch on our own with no one to show us how to get to the bus. The bus we were told to look for was the wrong bus. Of course our luggage didn't make it and that took another hour to register at our destination as every one else on the bus didn't get their luggage either. Bus driver got lost but passengers were able to show him the way. This is the third time in four flights Air Canada has lost our luggage. The worst was the NO ONE ever smiles, we were watching for it, and certainly NO ONE ever says we are sorry you are inconvenienced which would go a long way to make the delays and changes more tolerable."
Cons: "The aircraft was very old, without entertainment. Most of the crew were unenthusiastic. The food was less then average. A very different experience then flying from Toronto to London the week before, so quite disappointing."
Pros: "Good flight overall - the Air Canada Rouge entertainment was not bad, but didn't work on one of our phones and I couldn't get it to work on my tablet (driver wouldn't load - and couldn't check for driver til we got on plane, so that was frustrating). No issues with the other phones and my ipad. Food was good."
Pros: "Entertainment and food were nice. There were two meals, one would have been fine, but both were great."
Cons: "The check in counter in Dublin was horrendous. I was forced to check a luggage that was my carry-on on the outgoing flight so there was no reason it was not going to fit on the upper compartment, but the counter agent forced me to check it anyway, even with it being under weight limit. The line was huge and there were 5 counter agents, but 3, and at times 4 agents, at a time, were only pulling from the priority boarding line. We had to wait more than one hour to check in. Than to the boarding, the same people from the counter were the boarding agents. The boarding was extremely slow and again unorganized."
Cons: "Took off too late and missed next flight"
Pros: "I liked the vegetarian options for food."
Cons: "We got to the airport 2 and a half hours early, and thank goodness: check in took forever and they obviously didn't have enough staff, and never fixed that. Had to rush through everything else. Crew was unhelpful for those of worried about missing our connecting flights since the plane was late: those on board said they had no way to know and to ask the gate agent when we landed, the gate agent scoffed at us saying they had no way to know. I've been on flights where the crew kindly gave out connection information, so this is lazy on Air Canada's part."
Pros: "Planes were clean, relatively comfortable & flight attendants were polite. Flights that had individual screens on the seatbacks offered good movie choices."
Cons: "Ugh. Delays of 1-2hrs each on 3 of 4 flights for one trip. Missed connecting flight in Toronto. Baggage was a disaster. No communication between staff, was told something different by each person I spoke with. Flew to London & didn't get my bag for 3 days. Flight delays put me in to London a day late, wearing same clothes without access to my bag & lost 4 more hours of site-seeing time following day calling the airline & trying to meet up with courier delivering my bag. Then on my 7hr midday flight back to the states our plane had no screens at all for in flight entertainment. Security and Customs check process was ridiculously long. Waiting in line after line, and the automated kiosks processing passports were fickle delaying lines & leading to further follow up by staff. Very confusing and overheard several passengers talking about missing connecting flights. I highly recommend not flying Air Canada until they become more organized."
Pros: "The Dublin Airport has a great security system. Very smooth, easy and helpful staff at every point"
Cons: "We waited on the tarmac for a very long time, causing us to miss our next flight. This is not an Air Canada issue. The system in Toronto required another trip through security, lines and lines and lines. Technology that no one understood - very little guidance from Toronto staff except - "go here". It took almost an hour which caused us to miss our MSP flight. If you have an international flight through this airport leave yourself more than 2 hours. We had a two hour window and didn't make it in time."
Pros: "Flight attendants were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane."
Pros: "The flight attendants and captain were wonderful. The food wasn't bad either"
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable and I paid for extra leg room. My lower back was hurting so bad after."
Pros: "Nice crew. Smooth boarding."
Cons: "No televisions on an international flight. Yes, they have an app with movies but a friend couldn't connect to their wifi so was without entertainment. My seat was more comfortable on my DC-Montreal flight than my international. Warn customers about the difference between Air Canada and Air Rogue. Big difference."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and I was very stressed that I wouldn't make my flight home"
Pros: "I liked the gate agents."
Cons: "Where to start? How about, the planes are so old and so poorly maintained that our plane was almost three hours late taking off while they fixed something. At least two other flights from Dublin to Toronto took off around us, but we were never offered to be switched over to other planes so we could make our connecting flights. As a result, a plane full of angry people hassled by a serious lack of customer service focus landed in Toronto and had to, AGAIN, get in a huge line to be processed with all of the missed flights. They knew we were coming--WHY weren't there more preparations made for a much smoother transition?? I hate Air Canada and will never again knowingly book that airline. They need to change out the entire fleet of old, crappy, smelly, falling-apart planes."
Cons: "As above I had two delays of three hours each"
Pros: "We arrived at our destination safely."
Cons: "Our flight departed from the gate late and then needed to return to the due to a door malfunction. After a 4 hour delay we were on our way. Bathrooms were closed before takeoff but no announcement was made that they would be open during the delay. No beverages were offered during the delay. Not all of the bathrooms were functional during the flight. The entertainment system is available through your iphone, ipad or computer. If you haven't downloaded the app prior to departing you can't use it and you then need to rent an ipad for $10 to watch movies."
Cons: "Being bumped off of our connecting flight home after a long international flight due to overbooking (even though we had checked in all the way through from our departure city). We got split up going home and the $800 voucher that we were promised was decreeased to $400. They also lost our bag due to the changes. The reason we didnt get priority for seats on our connection is because our first flight landed at the last minute and by the time we got to the gate, all but 1 seat were claimed on a furst come first served basis. All staff treated the entire thing as an "oh well tough luck". No empathy because they suck so bad, they're used to seeing angry customers."
Pros: "Flight crew were fine. Flight itself was uneventful."
Cons: "Flights were all over booked. People were being bumped, flights delayed. We were in the Toronto airport for 8 hours. We missed our connection in Denver. The Air Canada people on Toronto said someone would be waiting to help us get a hotel and a new flight when we reached Denver. In realit, the stewards on the flight just gave us a card with a customer service number, said call this number and they will get you accommodations. So no one was at the gate to meet us and no one ever answered the phone!! We were on hold for 48 minutes. We were stuck in the airport for ten hours, through the night, until another flight could be arranged. We had to find someone on United to get us on a new flight. My daughter and I were at the end of 24 hours of flying and expected that what we were told would be carried out. I was not impressed with the way this was handled and no apology or compensation from Air Canada for the delays and sleeping on the airport floor!!"
Cons: "My biggest complaint regarding air Canada is the poor service and indifference typically exhibited by their service staff."
Pros: "service was wonderful and I appreciated the assistance in handling my luggage in Dublin"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Friendly employees at each turn"
Cons: "Change food to more palatable. Improve entertainment options to rival Delta and Aer Lingus"
Pros: "Good crew. Spacious seats"
Cons: "Needed the app to watch Player movies which you don't know about until you're onboard and its too late to download the app"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed an hour and half because the plane was having mechanical issues. That caused me to miss our connecting flight. The flight staff was rude and not helpful when I asked a question about my connecting flight. I had a family member who took a day off work and drove three hours from my home to pick me up from the airport. She also had to get a hotel room at her own expense because Air Canada's plane was not up to par. Not only was it an inconvenience to me but to my relative."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Flight got in early which is always nice."
Cons: "Outlets on the plane didn't work so I couldn't keep my phone charged. Kayak sent me an email indicating both my flights were on Air Canada but my flights to and from SFO were on United. I was unable to change my seats online with no explanation."
Pros: "The crew was friendly but not overly helpful. There was a nice selection of entertainment options."
Cons: "The food was horrible and made me throw up. The flight was freezing and the seats hardly reclined making it very uncomfortable. Especially since we were on the plane an extra 2 hours from a delay. The flight delay caused me to miss my connection flight. And then I wasn't put on the next available one, I had to wait around in the airport for a very long time, 4 hours to fly home. My baggage was lost. And my credit card was charged twice for my checked bag. The customer service employees in the airport refused to help me with either issues. I am extremely unsatisfied with my experience on Air Canada and will never be flying with it again."
Cons: "The flights were booked much too close together to get through Customs in Canada. If we had arrived on time we would have had only 1 hour and a half to make it to our next flight. However, our flight was late leaving Dublin. It was extremely stressful and we had to literally run through the airport to try to get through customs and to our next gate. if that flight hadn't also been delayed, there was no way would have made it"
Pros: "Going it was great. Flew later a night and avoided the lines etc. hated that there was no movie and you had to rent iPads if you wanted to watch a a movie or anything."
Cons: "Coming home was awful. Checked in early and our seats were by the bathroom, which it made impossible to sleep or even rest on a 6 hour flight. The que to go through security was crazy. Again the seat right next to the bathroom was awful. Bumping into by people trying to stand in line, the stewards trying to get through etc. I heard several people say they wouldn't fly Canada Air again."
Pros: "The crew was nice look above. Cramped seating, bad food and no inflight entertainment unless you download their app."
Cons: "Flight to Columbus cancelled....cheap vouchers for meals"
Pros: "That we made it there."
Cons: "Delays, old plane requiring app for entertainment, more delays, terrible low class food, the worst of any overseas flight, no drinks, though I don't drink much."
Pros: "Flights were all on time, crew and staff was very nice. Food was better then other flights I've been on."
Cons: "Seats were so uncomfortable, smaller and did not recline as much as other air canada airplanes I have been on. There was no entertainment for the almost 7 hour flight unless you uploaded the app prior to boarding which we were not told and could not because our devices, or you rented a tablet (which for this long of a flight it shold be included). The cabin was warm and stuffy with not much airflow which made my motionsickness worse and the plane was all on one setting so I could not control anything."
