Be dubious if you cant choose your seats
I liked that my family got to sit together and the location of our seats. The food quality was terrible. I did not eat the dinner, the boy in front of our seats got sick after eating the food. My tv did not work for the first 2 hrs and then it did come on. The flight attendants did not provide the headphones for any of the passengers in our area, so it didn't matter if the TV worked because I wouldn't be able to hear anything. When we got off the plane in Frankfurt we had to take the stairs off rhe plane and then take a bus to the terminal. Waited 10hrs for the next flight to Vilnius and then it was cancelled the last hour and half before the flight. We scrambled to try to get an alternative. We got on a wait list for a flight to Riga, Lativa that night. Fortunately, we were confirmed for boarding but had separates seats and we have small children. We were able to talk to the passengers nearby and they gave up there seats for us. Finally arrived after midnight in Lativa to find that our luggage was lost, apparently the attendant for Lufthansa in Orlando checked in our bag incorrectly and gave us the wrong person receipt tag. They are attempting to find our luggage which is apparently on it way to a town in Germany. We had to take the transportation bolt and be driven from Riga to Vilnius which is 3hrs and finally arrived in Vilnius at 5:30am. So yes, the flight was a disaster and probably our worst trip ever with Lufthansa. I don't think we will be traveling with Lufthansa again. It's a shame because I believe we're trying but they all seemed flustered and forgetful, maybe overworked. I do hope things can change in the future.
Safety - wearing masks was mandatory. Good service.
Pros: "Friendly, quick and efficient crew! Great food too!! My favorite part when in Houston, Texas my starting point, was that I never had to do the self check in, y’all actually had “real” people going the job!!"
Cons: "Boarding in order, by the seat numbers. That’s the only thing y’all can improve on. It was my first time booking with Lufthansa, and I will definitely book with y’all again."
Pros: "We got to Chicago at least 45 minutes before the expected landing time. The dinner was pretty good and the crew came around many times offering drinks. The ground crew did a good job of evaluating luggage and tagging people’s bags before the overhead bins got too full so it didn’t delay our flight."
Cons: "The snack sandwich was freezing cold..."
Pros: "Attention and comfort"
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Lufthansa is an airline in a different class altogether. Can not compare with any commercial airline that flies to Europe"
Pros: "I was traveling with a baby alone and crew was very supportive"
Pros: "Spacious seat, easy charging."
Pros: "Crew was great and friendly"
Cons: "Great plane & serive & big bathrooms"
Cons: "With a short layover and a bit of a delay coming from Seattle, I rushed through immigration and security and ran to my next gate. Even though I arrived at the gate two minutes before the scheduled departure time, the plane had already left the gate. VERY disappointing and will probably be the last time I fly Lufthansa, especially through Frankfurt."
Pros: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight crew was extra nice, even accommodating requests that gave them extra-work. Economy passengers were treated like first class in terms of service and solicitude of the crew. Headphones, blankets, pillows were offered free of charge, so we’re the food and drinks, and there was a good selection of movies and music. On a 770$ ticket, mind you! The crew will come by repeatedly to check if passengers desired some more wine or coffee, offered water and juices on a tray several times outside the regular service times, and cared for the families with children. Thumbs up!"
Cons: "The warm food was a bit unappetizing, the potatoes for instance were black, but there is nothing that the crew could do better than offer to replace it. Such graceful approach to a little inconvenience!"
Pros: "Staff was really good"
Pros: "Was not allowed on flight"
Cons: "When I missed the connection from the first leg of my flight and purchased the ticket from that leg to finish my itinerary, Lufthansa cancelled ALL of my return tickets. Both Lufthansa and my travel agency pointed the finger at the other and I had to purchase another $1000 ticket to get home. There was no cancellation emails or any notification. I didn’t know my tixkets were cancelled until I was trying to check in. Worst experience ever!!"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food and drinks were far in between. We were on Delta for an international flight and they almost didn’t stop offering stuff to us. I had a another man with broad shoulders like me next to me and had to spend the next 9 hours leaning to the other side to fit. Asked for help to find a different seat even if I had to pay for an upgrade and was told I couldn’t do that after the flight had started"
Pros: "All the staff were friendly and the complimentary food and drink snacks was lovely."
Cons: "Our flights were delayed both on the way there and back"
Pros: "Generally like Lufthansa service - have been flying the airline for 15 years+ Pilots are always excellent"
Cons: "Every flight (to and from India) seems to have the chicken option run out. Why not order accordingly? Had a bad seating experience. LH.com showed that I had completed the boarding process. But when I went to the counter, my seat was changed without my consent (to a worse seat), and I was told that the online process wasn't complete!! Then the website should say accordingly. It's really annoying when this happens. I think the ground crew in New Delhi duped me. At one point, my call button for my meal was ignored for ~30 minutes on the plane. And then I was told there was no more chicken, and handed a veggie wrap. One wonders whether I could have gotten chicken 30 minutes ago!"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and effective"
Cons: "The plane arrived late and I had to rush through Munich airport to make the connection. But the luggage arrived with me."
Cons: "The food. I don't eat many food and the wasn't much selection."
Cons: "Headphones not working properly in the whole economy class! Only one of the headphones was working... WOW, Lufthansa, never seen anything like this! Second serving of food was the worst I have been served on an airplane - a stale pizza. On a number of occasions I asked the hostess for a piece of bread and a glass of wine - she promised to be back and never was."
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "Many things. Starting from the online/mobile check in process via United airlines. I was not given any other option but to check in through the United website. On that website I was not allowed to check in for my Lufthansa flights and i was stuck with seats I did not want in my 2 long intercontinental flights. This has happened before. Lufthansa has no option to check in online if my first flight leg is united. This is a very big drawback and also the reason I would not prefer to fly Lufthansa again. United is bringing the quality down."
Pros: "There was a problem with baggage self checkin and it was hard to tell what to do"
Pros: "A340 was not the A380 but very nice. Had isle seat and seat next to me was open making for a very comfortable flight."
Cons: "The boarding process is a bit messy. While the lines went fairly fast, the "line" to board by section was all over the place. Would be better to simplify the process and board by groups or at least have a better way to line up"
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"
Pros: "Perfect service from crew members. Comfortable seats. Wonderful pilots!"
Cons: "Cramped boarding area."
Pros: "Boarding was ok. Crews not bad. Comfort ok."
Cons: "Food terrible. Please improve. If Lufthansa will like to continue carrying passengers from and to Nigeria they need to be giving the Nigerian passengers more than pester/spaghetti."
Pros: "Our dinner meal was quite good for airline food. After they reset my TV three times, it worked good."
Cons: "The breakfast left a lot to be desired. Leg room was very limited, especially after the person in front of me reclined their seat."
Pros: "The flight crew was exceptional in handling a medical emergency on the flight."
Cons: "Lufthansa bumped us from our preassigned seats. We purchased our tickets five months in advance to ensure our family would sit together. When we arrived, they had our family of five sitting in three different rows. Two of our young children had to sit alone, eight rows away from the nearest parent. After telling them we would not board sitting apart like that, they moved us closer together but still separate from two of our children. Highly disappointed."
Pros: "the crew was kind and helpful"
Cons: "the head of the crew( the purser) was extremely rude, inppropriate and unprofessional. I had an upgrade to economy premium because of the disaster with the DC to Franlfurt flight but I still experienced pain because I could not lay flat. I feel that Lufthana should give me a free upgrade to business on my flight back to Miami in October. it's the only way they can repair the stress, and emotional and physical torture they put me through in DC"
Pros: "Good food, friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Boarding process was torture. Lufthansa invited us to check-in early, but would not allow us to finish the check-in online process the day prior: seemed to be glitch in their computer system. We arrived at the airport early, but no one at Lufthansa could help us with seat assignments in order to seat our 12-yo daughter next to a partent. The airline did not open the gate area until 1+35 prior to the flight (advertised 2-hrs prior), and did not put anyone at the gate-desk until 1-hr prior to departure ...and they still could not help us. Boarding was disorganized; Lufthansa appeared to board by different groups, but there were no announcements as to which group(s) should board. Instead there was just a large crowd milling about, waiting to push their way to a gate agent. Very un-German."
Pros: "Same as above but even better."
Pros: "excellent service"
Cons: "entertainment selection"
Pros: "The overall feeling of this flight was 'relaxed'...after getting over the fact, that this was a huge (two story) airplane. Short flight from Denver to Frankfurt...only 8 hours:)"
Cons: "I would have loved to be offered eye shades and ear plus, since most passengers watched movies and i wanted to sleep:)."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly or very helpful, nothing stood out. As this was the first leg of my international flight, it would have been much better I had proper food, rather than a bag of 6 pretzels, especially since I had to be at the airport three hours earlier, and I had a six hour layover in Newark."
Pros: "Ground crew very helpful to get connecting flight on time"
Cons: "Run to get in on a plane"
Pros: "Food choices were excellent. Crew was attentive."
Pros: "Fast trip"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Great food, on time arrival"
Cons: "Seats are very tight."
Pros: "The price for a direct flight was reasonable"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working and movie selection poor. No individual screens especially for a 10 hr flight. Staff were not that friendly either. Old plane and small seats. I would rather pay more for a more comfortable flight."
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude, inattentive, and unhelpful. Made us put both carry-ons under our seats while other people had both carry-ons in overheads. Super uncomfortable flight and terrible experience."
Pros: "The crew was personable"
Cons: "Not enough recent television"
Pros: "Email follow-up and preparation for airports and gates ... among the best in the business"
Cons: "Your website is absolutely the WORST in the business on which to make a reservation. Incredible... and needs updating to current standards and user-friendly screens."
Pros: "Good plane, good crew, very nice having a row to myself. Loved the pretzel roll sandwich - good flavor, good texture, just the right amount of warmth!"
Cons: "Was spoiled by the 787 entertainment system on the outbound trip to London - this one was sluggish and dim. The curry chicken meal was not terrible, but not great."
Pros: "You messed me up since. Am still in Atlanta Have canceled your tickets. Would have been in Nigeria now. Even with your rescheduling for tomorrow, i was told i have to quarantine for 3 days in London where i don't know anyone. Just refund my money. Thanks"
Pros: "Crew great"
Cons: "No social distancing enforced, I was sat next to another person (no spaces between booked seats)"
Pros: "Early departure and early arrival. Everyone was very friendly."
Cons: "We had to wait for staff to come and check in baggage."
Cons: "Size of the seats"
Cons: "I missed my international connection because flight was three hours late."
Pros: "plane empty, speedy boarding."
Cons: "At least soft drinks should be free of charge."
Pros: "The flight was great and was on time. Down side, no entertainment at all."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"
Cons: "We didn’t, have a wheel chare whan we arrived to Dublen we wait near 1 hair till they come"
Pros: "Great personal service from the stewardesses. Excellent food. Plenty of drinks! Even good olive oil."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks, even coffee"
Pros: "New bedding is comfortable!"
Cons: "1. No toiletries were available for business class even on this flight. 2. There was no food choice especially if you prefer vegetarian. 3. Even if One presses a button to request for some water, no one comes to the seat; this habit of BA continues for the good part of the last decade. Reminded me why I stopped flying BA! 4. No wifi even in Business class! Someone in senior management of BA needs to fly SQ, Cathay, Qatar, Emirates and learn what can be improved. Most of these airlines have better service in economy than business on BA!"
Pros: "Very professional and friendly employees. Someone fainted in our cabin and the crew members took very professional care and offered the passenger oxygen."
Cons: "Very packed cabin, offered us just a sandwich after the first main meal."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, good dinner, decent entertainment selection, a few very good crew members."
Cons: "IFE screens are rather small for it being a brand new plane."
Pros: "I like flights that land on purpose in a couple.troled way. This one did that. Good enough for me."
Cons: "Having to fly, but sometimes if happens."
Cons: "Had to wait around while waiting forever to learn about gate. Were told that gat would be revealed 45 min before flight. It came about 20minutes before. It was a little harrowing."
Cons: "Love BA but very stand-offish and rude crew!"
Pros: "The food, the entertainment and the staff was super friendly"
Cons: "The seats should be more comfortable for such a long flight"
Pros: "movies, etc., accessible/"
Cons: "Plane couldn't be steered after landing...what kind of maintenance is there? had to wait for tow to arrive...missed connecting flight...no assist from Brit Air to figure out how to handle missed connection after arrival."
Pros: "Good schedules and reliable flights."
Cons: "Is there anything that America does poorly that the UK will not follow with? Does BA really wish to compete with Easyjet? No meals on a 3.5 hour flight? Extra payments for everything? Sorry, I will not fly Delta or United transatalantic because I have a choice. I guess I should switch back to Lufthansa or Swiss."
Pros: "The flight from London to BWI is convenient for people who live in PG County"
Cons: "The food and environment on the flight are boring"
Pros: "Longer flights make for more friendly and relaxed crew members!"
Pros: "polite crew"
Cons: "old plane, old entertainment systems, no updates"
Pros: "generally clean, good crew"
Pros: "on time, easy flight, comfortable, fairly priced"
Pros: "Troy was very helpful and entertaining"
Cons: "No white wine"
Cons: "3 hours on the plain waiting for take off. Cheap sandwich for breakfast."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "No snacks on a two hours flight? Have to pay extra???"
Pros: "The crew snd boarding"
Cons: "There were engine problems and the flight was delay by 2:20 and lost my train connection"
Pros: "So the 777 WTP is definitely more comfortable than the 787. Much better than the Beijing leg outbound. Entertainment option also improved as outbound they hadn’t changed since August."
Cons: "Dining options in WTP poor with breakfast being a major fail. English was potatoes, spinach, beans and mushrooms. Alternative was the same but with a slice of tomato replacing the beans and spinach. Inedible."
Pros: "The efficiency of the boardign"
Cons: "The fact I could not even get a glass of water without a credit card."
Pros: "I did a round trip to Paris. 1st portion on American Airlines. The difference was astounding as to friendliness, service, food, wine and entertainment the Brit Air back to NYC from Paris was 1000 times better than the 1st portion to Paris on American."
Cons: "There was a stop over in London that got a bit confusing at boarding time in Heathrow ...as a flight to another country was being boarded at the same time and the set up in the general terminal make for some confusion as to which line to get into."
Pros: "Food and service were great!"
Cons: "Babies crying, hate flying with Babies! Guy behind me kept pulling and kicking my seat, pain in the aaa!"
Pros: "Good amount of legroom, no issues with boarding etc. Food was fine and lots of snacks available if you knew where to look for them."
Cons: "Not the friendliest crew. Large film selection but not the best choice of new releases. Quite action focused."
Cons: "Should have more room on international overseas flights"
Pros: "Nothing. My entire group flew British Airways at one point of our multi-city trip and did not like them."
Cons: "QWebsite stated I could check in a bag free. Even when I checked in and specified I had a checked bag, there was no way to pay for it. When we finally checked in, I had to pay a higher price because it was at the gate."
Cons: "The woman who worked the British Airways desk in Helsinki and checked our bags is not suited for a customer service position. The screens on the British Airways long haul planes are tiny and difficult to operate. A 2,5 h flight where you can't even get water complimentary is appalling. Honestly all of your competitors offer a snack and beverages complimentary even if the flight is only 45 min. The boarding for London to Dallas flight was very confusing and could have been made easier with grouping the boarding instead of tons of people piling up to rush in at once."
Pros: "A lot of space for legs"
Pros: "The updates"
Cons: "Paid extra for seats that I did not get"
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Again because I was not allow to choose a better sit or buy an upgrade it was so fustrated!!"
Cons: "Plane was extremelly cold.Came back with bronchitis, missed day of work.Attendent claimed they do not have blankets, but at least came later one with one. Seat could have been broken was uncomfortabe sit on,"
Cons: "Nor too many good movies to choose from. I get it , row number 47, don't expect any 1st class comfort, but still, i was glad to land in Denver. Started to run out of sitting positions that didn't hurt."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "exelant crew ans service"
Cons: "overprice for extra bag"
Pros: "First time I have used assisted travel for myself and husband and it made a huge distance Flight was very good with excellent service in club class"
Cons: "No dislikes"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time."
Cons: "No free alcoholic drinks. Seats are barely up to international standard - narrow, as is the aisle. Very poor quality food."
Cons: "There was a loose screw on the plane and they did not detect it until the flight was about to take off! We had a delay -- though not too long, this was preventable."
Everything went perfectly. Check-in, bag drop, etc. The flight and crew were excellent.
Pros: "The crew was clearly concerned with the covid rules, but just as concerned for passenger's needs. Outstanding performance in difficult circumstances."
Pros: "Good seats, comfortable w headrest adjustable"
Pros: "Yes all good"
Cons: "Nothing I can think on to improve."
Cons: "Seats were VERY SMALL and worse, they were like sitting on a wood bench. Many passengers were grumbling about horrible the seats were. Unacceptable for a 5-1/2 hour flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "Speedy boarding. Helpful crew."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment"
Pros: "nothing. Plane never left."
Cons: "Airlines that actually fly. We ended up renting a car and driving the 3.5 hours from Charlotte to Savannah and actually beat the flight that finally left after 11 pm and landed 1 am. We should have gotten the car much sooner and driven instead of sitting at the airport for 8 hours."
Pros: "Equipment was adequate. I liked the on board emergency instructions!"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic—no lines, just a mass of people all trying to get to the same place.The crew did their job but weren’t particularly friendly."
Pros: "Landing and take off."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great!"
Pros: "Short flight. Connection was gate next door."
Cons: "Seating was for waif midgets."
Pros: "The gate crew and flight crew took extra care of my wife, who has MS and related difficulty walking. They showed great care - very friendly and professional. Pleasant experience all the way through."
Cons: "Seats were a little close together, so my knees were always touching the seat in front of me. Not terrible, but not ideal. I'm 6'1" and my legs are a bit long."
Cons: "The security check line was about a mile long at the Terminal 1, but that's not the airline's fault."
Cons: "Once we landed, we waited on the tarmac for good 20 minutes because something (I didn't understand what) was blocking the gate."
Pros: "Everyone was super friendly. The plane was clean and comfortable and the food was great for airplane food."
Pros: "Generally, the stewardess are new (slow service), but very kind and considerate."
Cons: "I take this flight quite a lot. These comments are for this flight (MIA/MSP) - but not necessarily only for this exact flight that I took on 10/1. To be clear - the crew says "this is not AA", it is Republic Airlines". Well, they must think of themselves very poorly. Their food in first class is always changing - oh, I meant only the names for the same exact meal change. "Grilled Chicken with Couscous", "Grilled Chicken with Risotto", etc.. - all cold meals as they do not have an oven/microwave? on the plane. They are charging first class international prices for economy domestic service. For this amount of money, they should have better meals and a more modern airplane. The first class is always freezing (even in summer) while the rear cabin where the crew stays when not working, is hot. So if they make the first class happy with the correct temperature, they cook in the back. I have also observed more people than usual coughing and getting colds - both ways - than any of the other flights I take regularly (over 115,000 miles on AA this year). I would suggest that AA make it clear that Republic must offer better service to their customers - especially for the large airfares they are receiving."
Pros: "The amount of people on the flight was nice,for everyone was able to spread out on the entire plane."
Cons: "The turbulence during the whole flight was terrible."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4+ hours due to weather. Gate agents did not communicate well, were rude and not helpful."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Delayed for some unknown reason"
Pros: "Let's see - I was in first class. The flight itself was fine - and only one hour + late!"
Cons: "Food - Served the "breakfast" (when it was called a protein plate) I had coming (into MSP). for "lunch" on the way back (called it a meat plate for lunch. One slice turkey, one slice jamon, one egg, cinnamon roll and fruit. Just because they don't want to serve bread - they call it a protein plate? I'm not on a protein diet. Food was pretty sick for the amount I paid for the fight. Stewardess said it was against Republic's rules to give a customer a can of tonic water (so I could add to the small amount of vodka) - she also told me that it was against Delta's, American's and United's rules to give a can - strange? First Class seat did not recline. First Class was freezing per every flight on this segment (the stewardesses sit in the back and don't want to be uncomfortable - if they make the front warm - the back is too hot for them (not joking on this one). So many things to list - that I will finish on the AA site."
Cons: "There was no inflight entertainment for such a long flight."
Cons: "Old, small seats, no tv, no WiFi"
Pros: "We were rerouted through Philadelphia."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was lovely."
Cons: "Waiting for maintenance, leaving late, running through the airport. No help from airport staff. They really seemed like that they didn’t care a bit if people made there flights. We barely made our connection to London. People who are 59 should NOT have to run through a huge airport! We spent a lot of money and planned this trip for nearly a year. There were no updates from Kayak. I will use Expedia from now on."
Cons: "Flight delays and cancellations."
Cons: "The Crew Tried to take us from our seats so they could sleep in our seats. They tried to relocate us to the last row where the seats don't recline.they were very abusive and rude, we have it all on a body Cam and we'll lodge formal charges against American Airlines once we return to the States. Worse Trip EVER."
Pros: "Good and entertainment"
Cons: "I have short legs so the long flight was uncomfortable. A stop of some sort would helpnif offered"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient, the pilot kept the passengers informed about the delays and updated gate info, etc. well. The seats and interior were cleaner and in better shape than I remember from the last time I flew American."
Cons: "The flight was delayed waiting for crew. The pilots arrived, then a couple of stewards and finally the last steward. Then had to de-ice and wait in line for takeoff. Made my connecting flight with 6 minutes to spare. Never received beverage service. Took 20 minutes to do the first 6 rows and then was discontinued because of turbulence."
Cons: "Took off late from Minneapolis only to announce that there was something wrong with the plane, no explanation as to what but that we had to circle to burn off fuel before returning to Minneapolis. Switched to a flight to D.C. with a connection to get to LGA. As soon as we sat down on that flight an announcement was made that we wouldn't make our connecting flight. Got to D.C. and asked to switch to go into Westchester instead of LGA which we were denied. So changed to another connecting flight to LGA that didn't take off on time. Offered nothing for any of the inconveniences. Etc."
Cons: "was seated between 2 to very overweight persons, the person in the aile side, extrememly heavy needed extension belt, plus removing the arm rest next to me and using great part of my seat. not a very comfortable situation and the plane was FULL, no empty seats"
Cons: "eh. not enough space, like most airlines these days. Flight wasn't long enough to hate it though."
Pros: "Wider seats."
Cons: "I left an expensive Bose head set in my seat that could not be found....or did smobody decide it was better in their possession.?"
Cons: "Arrived 1 hr before my flight and they wouldn't check me in. I believe they overbook the flight and turn customer down. They even gave me hard time during rebooking us. Never again."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and flights were on time."
Cons: "Crew could have been a little more friendly and the planes were a bit dated...although I know AA is in the process of replacing their fleet."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled we were re-routed and didn't get there until 24hours later."
Pros: "The flight staff did the best they could for how few of them there were."
Cons: "Flight cancelled, and the gate was understaffed, so it took forever to even get up to the counter to try arranging alternate flights. Also, the Kayak/Webjet tickets we were issued interfered with the process as the airline could not reissue us tickets directly. Moreover, one Kayak & Webjet got actively involved, they even tried to deny us passage on the alternate flights that American Airlines suggested. By the time we did make it up to the desk, everything was taken/full for the next few days & we have been struggling to make our overseas travel even possible ever since."
Pros: "Quick board and exit, fast check-in"
Cons: "Wi-Fi onboard free for all T Mobile customers, cramped seat room for a smaller adult even"
Pros: "Assigned seating, snacks, touch screen media feature."
Cons: "Staff could have been more friendly."
Pros: "The food, in flight entertainment and attention to detail by the Flight Attendants was very good."
Cons: "The personnel handling the front desk at check in gave myself and others bad information about how to check a bag. Which resulted in me being called to the desk at the gate about 30 minutes prior to boarding and being told I screwed up checking my bag when I was just following the instructions given to me. Was then told I had to leave the secure area of the airport, go back to the front to check my bag all within 30 minutes of boarding. when I returned thru the TSA checkpoint they were rude, obviously, but more importantly the flight was boarding early. So you could've 1. told me what the actual procedure is for checking my bag instead of telling me "just leave it by the green lit up check mark then 2. told me at the gate that not only do i need to go fix your mistakes for you but that youd also board my flight early thereby putting me in jeopardy of missing my flight. all i got was a very insincere apology when I complained up front and at the gate about the airline's screw up. i get that you're all human like me and make mistakes but the customer is always right. there was a time in this country when customer appreciation and service were important standards and qualities businesses thrived on. Don't know what happened to those days... Also i should not need to be a first class passenger to get a meal during a flight. whatever happened to meals for everyone? you (all airlines in the US) charge way too much money and provide poor service compared to pre-9-11 days. I dont see how one event can justify the loss in service but the increase in ticket price. you should all get back to what flying should be about: fun and time saving."
Pros: "I liked the fact I eventually ended up in Dallas - that's about the only thing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Inconsistent service - some customers got cans, some got just a cup with a lot of ice and drink. FAs were uninterested when the drink I wanted was not available. Flight was delayed by a maintenance issue. Overall, a terrible experience."
Pros: "The flights left on time and arrived early. It reminded me of the old days when everything ran like clock-work."
Cons: "The leg room was barely enough for me and I'm 5'4". I can't imagine people much larger than me being comfortable at all. Also, the chair made my back hurt, so I did a lot of sitting up straight as opposed to being "in the chair". I noticed that you had snacks for purchase on the flight, but the free snacks were cookies and pretzels. It would be nice to offer a trail mix or dried fruit. Pretzels are good for people who might be a little sick at their stomach, but better snacks are a nice option. I ordered coffee and it was perfect. Overall, the flight was a good flight, just a little tweaking and it would be great. Thanks for asking."
Pros: "Friendly and prompt service."
Pros: "Pretzels and drinks."
Cons: "The group's for boarding are ridiculous. The back of the plane should board first and so on... the new plane we flew on had the smallest seats we've ever seen. When we tried to board, the crew would rudely say, it's not your turn. We were flying for a funeral and paid a lot for our tickets. We should be treated with respect. One lady said to put our luggage in the first available compartment, then when we tried, another lady rudely said, if that's not where you're sitting, you can't put your bag there. We were embarrassed and when we tried to explain what we'd been told she told us to keep moving."
Pros: "Nothing. Was a lot of waited, the people were mad rough."
Cons: "We had a cup of water and a cookie for a 3 hours flight. The captain put gas at the airport with us in the plane. we waited in the plane almost 3 hour because of a storm."
Pros: "You had genuine people working."
Cons: "Flight was delay for a long time."
Pros: "My first flight fom MSP to chicago was 25mins early and from Chicago to MCI 5mins early which is good."
Pros: "Wireless entertainment and seat spacing on the airbus"
Cons: "Boeing seats are too close together. Space them out"
Cons: "The usual-- lack of legroom, insufficient recline"
Pros: "Seem to be a smooth and direct flight"
Cons: "The flight was fine however my seat was next to the bathroom and people would occasionaly Bump in to me ."
Cons: "It was the first of three flights. I was automatically rebooked on a flight that didn’t allow nearly enough time to make my connection. United didn’t want to help because only one of the flights was really theirs. Same with Swiss Air. It was a terrible beginning to my trip. I lost money on shuttle fair since I never went to Minneapolis, too."
Pros: "The flight was unremarkable"
Cons: "The loading was 1hr late because United had to move the plane to the proper gate. No leg space, but that's my 6'-4" body's fault."
Pros: "Great to always feel comfortable while traveling."
Cons: "The legroom is non-existent. I sure wish airlines didn't try to put so many seats in each aircraft."
Pros: "Flight was quick and the flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "I'm 6' tall and my head was above the headrest, so it wasn't super comfortable to lay back."

Pros: "On time Friendly staffs"
Pros: "The crew was nice and boarding process went smoothly."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment would constantly shut off and not work causing you to restart everything. Also, multiple movies being offered were unavailable.'"
Cons: "There was no provided entertainment"
Pros: "The flight was great. The seat was comfortable, the staff was funny and kind."
Cons: "You need more sparkling water on the flights, LaCroix. Or Dasani, so many people no longer drink diet soda for healthier options, more sparkling beverages would be wonderful."
Pros: "Very nice large roomy airplane"
Pros: "On time, no delays."
Pros: "Room for my luggage"

Pros: "The flights were wonderful. Boarding process went smoothly."
Pros: "One of the best flights I have ever been on! Everything was right on time."
Pros: "I appreciate that United hasn't gotten greedy with baggage charges and has kept their seating comfortable. Last Frontier flight was RIDICULOUS!!"
Pros: "The staff was friendly"
Pros: "I really like almost everything about flying with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Checking in and obtaining my boarding pass was a less than satisfying experience. Initially I could not check in until arrived at the airport because the first leg of my trip was Lufthansa through United? I tried to check in on BOTH United and lufthansa's website neither worked. I then spent about 45 minutes on the phone with a Lufthansa representitave just to find out I would be unable to check in until I arrived at the airport the next day. Once I checked in to the airport I could only get my seat for the first flight and was told I would have to get my subsequent seats while on layover. When I arrived at my layover, while trying to get my seat for the next flight I was told they were overbooked and I would have to wait 'over there' until they could figure out a place for me to sit. But when the attendant printed my ticket she was shocked to find out I had a seat, and angrily reported that 'I don't know how YOU got a seat, but you did. So go get in line for the flight!' That said, I did get in line, I did get fairly decent seats the whole trip, and all but one employee were overly helpful and nice. However it would have been far less stressful if I was just able to check in for the initial flight."
Cons: "No movies to watch"
Pros: "The other legs of the trip were on time"
Cons: "The second leg of the trip was two hours late which always happens at Chicago Ohare"
Cons: "Every flight I had was delayed at least an hour, and one of my flights was delayed 2.5 hours, which caused me to miss an important meeting. When I asked why it was taking so long, the United customer service representative was very short and somewhat rude. Not a great experience this time that's for sure."
Pros: "Love junction airport"
Cons: "DIA is always nice and kayak was a great service and price."
Pros: "It was a good flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Overall good flight. Very quick! :) nice pilot"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Seat too tight couldn't move at all"
Cons: "Seat too tight couldn't move at all"
Cons: "One strange thing happened on my United airlines flight. The crew announced before we boarded that there wasn't enough overhead space for rolling bags and encouraged us to check them in. Upon boarding they announced that all overhead space in the back was full. I sat in the back and noticed that the crew closed the overhead compartments even though they were mostly empty. Another passenger opened an empty one and the crew came over and closed it right away, though many people were still boarding. What's going on?"
Pros: "We got here"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Pros: "Comfortable seats ,they seem to have a new ergonomic design that make them more comfy . More leg room even in regular economy seating."
Cons: "Staff wasn't very talkative just kinda did the basic beverage service and that's it . Not rude but not overly friendly either . The crews that work for Southwest make you laugh and they're so much more interactive with passengers ."
Pros: "Organized, calm and considerate to travelers."
Cons: "The man in charge of seat assignments and boarding refused to talk to any of us who hadn't been assigned seats until everyone else had fully boarded the plane. He just told us "wait 20 minutes. No wait 30 minutes. Wait." While he did end up giving us seats, he was extremely unhelpful through the process as he wouldn't give us any information and had us wait in line from well before the boarding process until the end. Then on the plane, the air was so cold as to be truly uncomfortable. The flight attendant did try to warm it up though after multiple people requested, so she was quite nice."
Cons: "Delayed three times"
Cons: "The flight had continual ongoing delays and it was recognized I would not make my connection. United was more than accommodating to the customers in front of me, however when it came to assisting me they were not. I would not get to my final destination until 7 hours after the original time. I will never fly United airlines again."
