All 3 flights delayed. Weather delayed 2.

Terrible

The cabin was a bit warm, and I felt pretty cramped in my seat. The pilots did a fantastic job flying. Landing is my least favorite part of flying, but I didn’t clutch my husband or the seat in front of me when they landed at Dulles.

Pros: "I didn’t even catch this flight - the connection time was impossible causing unnecessary stress!!! Just don’t sell this ticket which such a tight connection."
Cons: "Don’t sell an unrealistic connection time"
Pros: "Everything but not the food"
Cons: "Food was horrible"
Pros: "the crew was great; super well prepared ladies with professional behavior. my compliments. also the snack was excellent and finally no junky food but a healthier offer. bravissimi!!!"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "MAN-MUC & MUC-CPH via LH. Business class. LH Businesss class is middle seat of 3 is empty and larger amounts of baggage plus you have access to lounges. Both planes flew and arrived reasonably on time, which is what I look for.And I got all the Business Class extras."
Cons: "Security at Manchester was very slow - long enough make me ill from standing in one place too long. But then I was well looked after. The meals on both flights were identical; I don't think it can be a big problem to correct that. I took a long time to get accepted by the WiFi in the two lounges."
Pros: "Entertainmet"
Cons: "Food and rounds for drinks"
Pros: "Fairly comfortable, good cabin crew"
Cons: "Lost baggage - horrendously slow lost baggage department in Athens. Spent 1 hour + standing in line. Bag still hasn't shown up"

Pros: "It was all really good, as always when flying with Lufthansa"
Cons: "Can always do without delays"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful from FRA to LAX. ground crew in Athens was terrible. Very offensive, unfriendly, unprofessional and ill mannered. Entertainment was good but touch screen was very old and janky."
Cons: "Wifi not working even if you purchase the full flight plan. Other passengers had the same problems. It took 30 minutes to send one email. Ground crew in Athens was terrible. Not cooperative at all, and almost risked missing my flight because of them."
Pros: "We got two drinks, I had an empty seat next to me which made things more comfortable"
Cons: "Add an entertainment system, better food, there shouldn’t be a long wait to get a drink after your meal and maybe serve water with the meal. There wasn’t too many shops in the airport"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and cool."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "This was a smooth as clockwork journey, the transit was easy and we were kept well informed about changes in the gate number"
Pros: "Boarding was great. There is priority boarding available for those booked on connecting long haul premium economy flights."
Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable. For a 2 hour flight, it was okay. Any longer would have been difficult."
Pros: "Clean airplane, Nice seats. Very nice crew. Good connecting flight."
Pros: "coffee"
Cons: "boarding was chaotic"

Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delays"

Pros: "Crew was personable and friendly"
Pros: "The food between Frankfort to Istanbulwas lovely and the staff nicely"

Pros: "Spare seat next to me"
Cons: "Could have done with pre dinner drinks a bit quicker"
Pros: "Perfectly okay flight, slept through with no disturbances. Crew were friendly enough and landed fine. Airport took me a while to figure out though."
Cons: "They don't have entertainment"
Pros: "Quick flight and very comfortable."
Pros: "Service and comfort"
Pros: "Overall it was good trip!"
Cons: "No issues at all"
Cons: "Where to begin? During the booking process, there was no indication my travel partner and I would be flying Air Canada, and not Lufthansa. We were seated in the last row of the plane with painfully little legroom — even for two women of relatively small stature. The plane was not equipped with modern conveniences of operational wifi, music, or any other means of entertainment over the ten-hour flight. We were nearly an hour late to depart, but were unable to hear anything over the speakers regarding the cause for the delay, nor could we hear any of the flight attendants' safety instructions. What we could hear, however, was the surprisingly loud and nearly constant DINNNGGGG of the passengers' call buttons as they summoned the flight attendants. Because the flight was an overnighter, we attempted to sleep, but it was nearly impossible to do so due to the noise. I had earplugs in and could still hear the chimes, which were positioned right above our seats and made for an unpleasant experience and cranky travelers. The food was subpar as expected, but it would've been nice to be surprised with something resembling a fresh piece of fruit or vegetable. The flight crew was polite and one of the attendants took pity on us and offered a complimentary shot of whiskey, which partially alleviated the discomfort of the experience. That man is a saint and we surely hope he is better taken care of by this airline than we were. Overall a miserable experience. Will definitely rethink flying both Lufthansa and Air Canada in the future."
Cons: "Having to pay to sit together."
Pros: "Lufthansa over Thomas Cook any day"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight canceled"
Pros: "Good space in cabin compared to other airlines and excellent service by crew"
Cons: "Benefits for frequent flyers and senators have been eroded significantly . also it has been made much harder to achieve status. In the past, complimentary upgrades were done frequently. nowadays it doesn't happen anymore. For someone who is flying approximately 30 times per year with star alliance, this is dissatisfying. I also don't understand why my preferences from my profile are not used in the pre-allocation of my seat."
Pros: "Standard Lufthansa short haul, Crew attentive"
Cons: "arrived off stand"
Pros: "Great service !!!!"
Pros: "Unusually rough and crowded flight though that is hardly the fault of the airline."
Cons: "In economy class, there should either be adequate room for average sizes people at the least or seats should NOT be allowed to tilt back."
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
Pros: "The food was kind of nice"
Cons: "Hardly any leg room, hardly any elbow room, got middle sitting on all my flights and the lay overs were terrible and last but not least my baggage were I had my holiday did not show up for two days. When it did I tipped the driver 20 pounds as he deserved it more than anyone anyways. Oh yeah almost forgot to mention my bag looks like it went through a meat grinder. Thanks Lufthansa baggage handlers your the best ever ! And BTW this para graph speaks for a my stops and transfers"
Pros: "ample food and no $ to check baggage."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "No problems. As could be expected. Would do again."
Pros: "Air china different"
Pros: "I got the meal of my choice. Excellent attention and check in experience was smooth and quick"
Pros: "Food was excellent and the stewards were great"
Cons: "An 8 hour flight!"

It left on time!

Great staff left Gatwick early.

Pros: "For a very short flight everything worked well..."
Cons: "Nothing really..."
Cons: "The security queue was an utter joke and took 30-40 minutes. I got to the gate as the flight was closing and many people were still behind me. Gate staff said they would be leaving without the passengers stuck in the security queue."
Cons: "Kayak got the departure time completely wrong"

Pros: "Yes and yes"
Cons: "For what it is that you offer I am not sure what more I should expect. All staff were courteous and friendly. Great job."
Cons: "Whether the type of aircraft or the plane itself the pressure system did not work. It has been years since I have had to deal with clogged painful ears, but for 30 minutes this was the case. The flight was over 40 minutes delayed and no announcements were made. Boarding and deplaning was chaotic."
Pros: "Very attentive cabin crew. Great service, great pilot and cockpit crew. All flight information was very well communicated. Smooth landing effort during thunderstorm activity."
Cons: "Boarding process was not as effective at Gatwick airport as expected."
Pros: "Budget airline comfort"
Cons: "They could have first called speedy boarding so I didn't appear like I was trying to jump the queue. Also ended up boarding along with everyone else as in a bus so didn't really get any advantage for paying for the perk"
Pros: "Nothing, the most horrible airline with rude crew and unpredictable."
Cons: "At least be courteaous when your flight is delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "Boarding was haphazard, food had to be paid for, even water and the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Good enough for price. Quite long boarding process."
Pros: "Decent legroom and space to spread out."
Cons: "Some entertainment options would be welcome."
Cons: "Late. Boaring hectic."
Pros: "Enough leg room to extend legs under the seat in front. Orderly exit row by row instead of a scrum. Having a window seat usually means you are last to get off!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Food and crew were excellent"
Cons: "8 hours in the air."
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Pros: "Fast easy hoarding. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "EasyJet is always a good option. Baggage is included which is not common these days among small airlines. Flight attendants are very friendly."
Cons: "Just under a three hour delay without notice"
Cons: "Boarding delayedchaotic"
Cons: "I had booked a day trip to London. The night before flight I received phone call from Easyjet offering me Euro250 to take a later flight as only a smaller plane than planned was available. But then you decided obviously not to send the smaller plane but did not bother phoning or emailing us customers as you had done the previous evening. I wasted more than half my day (1.5hr drive to airport plus 3 hours a airport) as I had to reschedule my day trip for a later dater to fit in the few meetings I had. I understand problems arrive, but Easyjet push their planes too hard. They are often late. Unreliable. At least communicate to your customers if you care about hem"
Pros: "N"
Cons: "When you check in, you are asked to choose your seats. Every seating option comes with and additional charge of some sort, so your tickets are actually more expensive than you thought. Bait and switch!"
Cons: "We didn’t take it. Although it was scheduled for a 6:50 am departure it was delayed until noon and we would have missed our flight from London to the U. S. It was very hectic and frustrating trying to find another flight. We got NO help from ez-Jet. Luckily TAP Portugal was extremely helpful and we did make our Delta flight with lots of extra help from them."
Pros: "Did not take this flight. Had to pay 89 Euros extra to change the flight because we were given the wrong flight number when it was booked and printed out. The printout read 3:45 pm as the leaving time, but the flight number printed was for the 10:10 am flight."
Cons: "We had to pay 89 euros to take the flight we originally book. We sustained a lot of stress as I engaged in a chat session and had to place several phone call to solve the problem."
Pros: "Excellent pilot communication an great flight attendants."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Gate agent"
Cons: "I did not get on to the flight because the connection flight was late! I then had to wait 5 hours to get an answer that the next flight will be the day after in the evening! Worst service I have ever experienced!"
Cons: "Dealing with being overweight Seating was a bit tight"
Cons: "The airline is perpetually delayed. Food options are not vegan friendly. The crew is not very service centric"
Cons: "The crew was very rude and aggressive. I had a woman bag and a small cabin bag and they require me to put the handbag into the cabin bag, which is fine. But i arrived to the flight after an injury in my leg when i can barley walk and needed my handbag as it has my painkillers and my leg band, but they refuse to let me keep it and keep insist that i have to put it inside the cabin bag. At the end i paid 60 euro!!!! for that as i didn't have energy to argue and the flight was about to leave. This is the last time i'll use easy jet!!! i'd rather pay more and get some human behavior. very very poor and disappointing experience."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The seats don't lean back. My dear, in particular, had a giant stain, a small hole and was filthy. The seats are too narrow with almost no leg room. They don't give you water or beverages for free."
Pros: "The crew on board were excellent & very friendly."
Cons: "We were delayed for 4-5 hours, and the desk agent at the gate did not fully explain over an official announcement what was happening. This caused everyone to approach the desk to individually ask about the updated status of the flight. The actions post-delay was unorganized and we were very uniformed of what was happening. It felt like we just had to listen to rumors from the crowd."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew were excellent"
Cons: "There was no acknowledgement from EasyJet, when i called Customer Service, that there was a strike at the Barcelona airport. After waiting on the security line for 90 mins and concerned we were not going to make our flight, I called to find out what my options. I was greeted by a very rude and unhelpful individual who ended up just hanging up the phone on me after asking if she could help me by telling me my options. Not exactly something I wanted to experience after the frustration of waiting on a line for 90mins."
Pros: "Low cost"
Cons: "High price to check luggage"
Cons: "no WIFI"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Legroom"
Cons: "Your check in system, does not work well"
Pros: "The price for the ticket"
Cons: "No free fondo"
Pros: "B"
Cons: "Just fckin everything"
Pros: "Quick service in the cabin and food was reasonable"
Cons: "The flight attendants did not hand out the disembarkation form prior to landing...LOTS of passengers were trying to make connecting flights and were delayed due to proper forms NOT being offered to us inflight."
Pros: "Besides the baggage ckeck in, the rest was good; boarding, flight and crew."
Cons: "I am disappointed with the baggage weight and the carry-on policy. They should be more flexible with that. Its only one carry-on per person but should not be counting on purses, lights back packs or laptops. I paid $94 for two checked baggages and only had my small carry-on and a little back pack with my personal stuffs when before boarding the crew ask me to make my bag fit into the small carry-on. Totally disappointed."
Cons: "Stupidly long wait"
