Cons: "Flight was delayed in Frankfurt due to technical issues. That was fixed, but ended up missing the flight to Minneapolis. Lufthansa provided vouchers to hotel and shuttle to the hotel (holiday inn express) and back to the airport. We stood out in the cold for 45 mins but the shuttle did not show up. Ended up taking Uber to the hotel only to find out their shuttle service does not start in the morning before 5:30 am. They booked me on a 6 am flight with 5:45 boarding time. The hotel scheduled a taxi to pick me up at 3:30 am to make back to the airport on time. I ended up spending $70 and I’m totally exhausted. I wished I just stayed at the airport. Not to mention the quality of the hotel accommodations is less than average. Very disappointed with how this whole situation was managed."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful, gong out of their way as even bringing me camomile tea. It was lukewarm, it it’s the thought that counts."
Cons: "The seats were way too tiny on this giant airbus, even for me and my daughter-in-law who are both under 5 feet and under 100 lbs. te flight was torture. Food also was not as good as previous Lufthansa fare."
Pros: "The crew were very professional. There was a very difficult passenger who was very rude to the stewards and I thought they coped really well. I was sorry to see them treated in this way."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "More support"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "The flight was delayed as we were waiting for documents required for our entry to the UK - surely these should have been ready in advance? Perhaps a taste of things to come if (when) we sadly leave the EU. Same poor sandwiches."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "Flights being on time. Friendlier staff. They would t have misplaced my luggage."
Pros: "Actually a very roomy plane for these days. Highly recommend this flight and plane type."
Cons: "The food sucks - bring your own."
Pros: "Comfort and space"
Cons: "Flight was canceled from Newark to Monachium then coming back plane from Krakow was late and I had to spend night in Monacoum . I arrived to Newark on Tuesday instead of Monday horrible trip all together ☹️"
Pros: "Service and hospitality. On dot service with no major delays."
Pros: "Can not fault anything"
Cons: "I arranged assistance but nobody showed up."
Pros: "Upgraded to Economy Plus for more legroom. Very worth it for an 8-hour flight"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "The crew were very considerate. Also they have the best baby beds we have seen so far"
Cons: "The entertainment system was glitchy."
Cons: "The whole experience"
Pros: "United/ LH first called it a mechanical delay....we waited....then the weather caused this mini plane not to take off....long story short...we had to stay in a hotel...nobody gave us a voucher...our helped us with anything....very poor service"
Cons: "The first flight for this trio was cancelled .. stop with automated cron jobs"
Pros: "The gluten free special meal was more imaginative than others I’ve had. No rice crackers wrapped in saran. Flight attendants very professional."
Cons: "Flight seemed to drag on forever, but there’s not much the airline can do about that. Seats in economy were cramped."
Pros: "We were late on arrival due to a delay in our connecting flight. Lufthansa had a courtesy van waiting for us on the tarmac and ushered us directly to the flight being sure we did not miss our flight. Lufthansa went above and beyond in their customer service!! We are truly grateful to the airline for their assistance and superior service!!"
Cons: "I was never notified that there was no 1:45pm flight. Had I not gotten to the airport early I would not have made the flight to Chicago.at 12:25pm. I was originally scheduled to to to Munich but the flight was to Frankfurt. The plane arrived early so I had to make different plans for someone to pick me up Very disappointed in lack of communication"
Pros: "Great staff, quick boarding and vegetarian options were avaliable. This was the most pleasant experience I've had with a flight service. I commend Lufthansa and the crew of this aircraft."
Cons: "Minimal entertainment but understandable for a short flight."
Pros: "The flight itself was on time, the food was basic, just like drink."
Cons: "Staff didn't ask a lady next to me to sit properly whilst she was almost laying with her shoes very near to my seat. I had to be careful not to clean her shoe soles with my clothes. Also, after arrival to Birmingham there was an unnecessary crowd created by releasing people from busses from 2 different flights simultanously."
Pros: "Seating, cleanliness, crew courteousy, entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding process unclear, poor announcement, and messy. No wifi, choice and quality of food. Entertainment was erratic at times."
Cons: "Rubbish boarding staff"
Pros: "Easily the most comfortable I've ever been in TATL economy. Lufthansa's 747-8 is set up strangely: the main deck is arranged First - Business - Economy - Prem. Economy - Economy. This means that if you can book a seat in the forward economy mini-cabin, you get dedicated cabin crew, no other passengers walking through your space to get to the bathroom, plenty of bin space, and – best of all – a lot of aisle space to stretch your legs. Row 16 aisle seats are especially good, as the bulkhead between J and Y doesn't extend all the way, and therefore you can stretch your feet out. Food was actually excellent (for economy), hot and flavorful and generous, with snacks available mid-flight. Beverages also tops – gotta love Lufthansa for offering Campari (!) and more than one wine choice."
Cons: "Entertainment (music and movies at least) was up-to-date but not very interested. Boarding and transit security in Frankfurt was anxiety-inducing – between getting to the US departures area and additional screening, it took more than an hour from deplaning to getting in line. Boarding w/o group numbers was an exercise in patience. And the terminal wifi is so spotty!"
Pros: "Crew were efficient and pleasant"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and could not recline seats"
Cons: "Delay due to overbooking"
Pros: "Everything went according as planned. No problem at all."
Cons: "There is nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "The crew were excellent and plane was comfortable"
Cons: "The plane was way out of the terminal and I had asked for assistance which I had going and most of coming back until the last part getting on to the plane at Lufthansa no-one came at Birmingham either. I struggled to collect my case and walk through to the exit."
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "small seat despite being in business class"
Cons: "A flight attendant from Bucharest to Frankfurt kept bumping her behind in my shoulder. Before this she was not helpful when I asked her where to put my bag. She shoukd not work with people if she does not like them. Otherwise, everything was great: food, space, movies."
Pros: "The polite stewards The food and drinks given for free."
Pros: "Movies were good"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable. Service was not good. Rude staff. Horrible experience."
Pros: "I enjoyed my experience but the food was not that great ."
Pros: "The services provided by United were good, although we were delayed due to mechanical issues. However, we were kept informed and made comfortable."
Cons: "I did not know when I booked through Lufthansa that it was a United flight, so I could not check in online and I was not able to order my gluten-free meal. Also, since it was Lufthansa, I was not able to download the entertainment system onto my portable device because I did not know I needed to."
Pros: "Even though we were a little late boarding and taking off, we still arrived 15 minutes early. The on board snack was pretty good (cheese sandwich) and the coffee was lovely - good quality and just what I needed."
Cons: "Too many controls during boarding"
Pros: "Lufthansa Flight from Cape Town to Munich canceled due to mechanical problems. Flight rebooked with great difficulty and confusion by Lufthansa. Condor and United picked up the pieces and got us home."
Cons: "We didn't like the total confusion and errors made by Lufthansa staff during the rebooking process after the flight cancellation."
Pros: "Crew was very good. Pilots, definitely, were high level professionals."
Cons: "My reservation was cancelled - I found it at DME.. An email, which Lufthansa Moscow promised to send me, had never come. My carry on, while weighted 7 kg, and was, I believe of standard size was not approved. Again, there was an unnecessary on my mind, second TSA-like check at FRA. Lufthansa could just bring me by bus to the departure gates. I believe that police officers with openly carried machine guns INSIDE of TSA secured zone at FRA is too much (though I am not a law enforcement person)."
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "Comfortable, crew are very helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Food isn't that good"
Pros: "Lufthansa does travel in Europe very well. Boarding process was easy, overhead storage was great, Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Seats in business class are rather smallish, and the legroom is not great either. If you pay extra for business, you should get extra."
Pros: "Extra leg room in the emergency exit area was great for a tall person. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and they switched the gates. The flight was overbooked. No entertainment offered."
Pros: "Very good staff and service"
Cons: "It was too cold on the plane."
United is on par with Spirit only l pay 4 times the amount
Cons: "The front desk in Vancouver, Canada did not allow me to board the plane to Tokyo. I am supposed to attend the memorial service of my Mom who passed away two days before."
Pros: "I liked that the plane didn’t crash!"
Cons: "I don’t know, maybe having FOOD ON THE FLIGHT ACROSS THE COUNTRY INSTEAD OF JUST CANDY?"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Cramped seating in basic economy, the upgrade seating wasn’t much better"
Pros: "NOTHING!! I had to book them another flight thru another airline, because they had a delayed stating weather issues when it was nice and sunny so they couldn't make it on time. I will never trust United Airlines not for myself or any on my family members, nobody period!"
Pros: "They got me to my destination safely and the flight attendants were all very nice"
Cons: "United is cramped and very cheap. They don't provide much in terms of amenities compared to a lot of other airlines."
Pros: "Staff was excellent. From check in to flight crew. On time and earlier arrival. Unexpected."
Cons: "Unable to bring some carryon. No coffee available on board."
Pros: "I liked that I knew in advance to download the United app so I could actually watch a movie!! This was the second leg of the trip, and I didn’t know this the first flight and couldn’t use the United entertainment."
Cons: "An hour and half layover is fine, but add an3 hour delay on top of that, Kinda stunk. But hey, me and all my bags made it this trip!"
Cons: "Flight delayed missed connecting flight. Second flight delayed missed connecting flight. Overnight in airport expected unless united pays for hotel. Absolutely miserable. Paid 430$ one way for a 25 hour flight. Will never fly United again."
Cons: "entertainment was intermittent"
Cons: "Ride was bumpy"
Pros: "Great staff and breakfast was very refreshing. Will definitely fly with United again."
Cons: "Pretty good. I'd fly united agsin."
Pros: "Apologies and attitude of crew They got me on another carrier so I could get to my destination"
Cons: "Not enough people on hand to reroute customers. Some picky customers took too much time. After an hour they handed out phone number to call and make our own arrangements"
Pros: "Friendly, attentive crew made being scrunched in economy much pkeasanter than on other trips. They seemed to like their work, each other and us! This is not always the case."
Cons: "Trouble getting in-flight entertainment screen to work. Crew member Rick rebooted it for me and the problem was solved."
Pros: "Nothing, the fact that they were my membership partner for milege"
Cons: "Food was bad, boarding process sucks , seat sucks for first class, no free wifi , old dated devices , was not offer personal device on first class, crew seem mad all the time"
Cons: "Audio did not work well on demand, food costs money"
Pros: "Nothing again!!!"
Cons: "Having to fly to LHR to get home, even that flight was delayed. Typical United methinks."
Pros: "The entertainment options were good. The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "No food on a 3 hour flight?"
Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice. She tried to let one particular person off plane first so that he could run to catch his connecting flight"
Cons: "The gate people were horrible at explaining the delays and then trying to set up alternatives. Quick tip: offering "free water" when your flight is delayed 1.5hrs so several people will miss their flights is not enough."
Pros: "Nice employees."
Cons: "Mechanical delay in fargo caused me to miss my connecting flight to Eugene by 5 minutes. Got to Denver airport asked the gate guy to call my connecting flight gate to see if they could hold the door for me, he said you got 10 mins go. I ran 30 gates and the door just closed and missed my flight. I am 25 weeks preg so my running time is slower then normal. Then they rebooked me on a flight that had an additional connect and arrived 4 hours later then expected. By the time I got to my new flight gate- it was delayed so would miss my next connecting flight. Long story short it's 3 hours past when I was suppose to leave and settled for s flight to PDX tonight getting in at midnight. My friend From eugue is picking me up in Portland tomorrow. It has been an unsuccessful flight. Almost cancelled and went home......"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours causing me to miss my connecting flight to Indianapolis. Went to the service desk to re-book, and nothing could be done to get me out in time. Customer service was not great. I was flying to see my daughter graduate, and the only time they could get me out was when the graduation started. No hotel vouchers were given for the delay either, so the airport bench ended up being the bed. So I ended up being stranded in Newark for an additional 8 hours to just miss her graduation."
Cons: "Flight crew didn't seem very friendly"
Pros: "Friendly crew. I could understand the pilot. He had to tell us we were skirting weather and would be delayed in landing. But he was clear and professional, which made it easier to take."
Cons: "No one can like the seats these days on almost any aircraft. Not enough leg room and the seats curve your upper body into some unnatural position."
Pros: "Entertainment options were great, the crew was super friendly, and the food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "Seats seem to get smaller every time I board, and despite flight information stating there were power outlets and wi-if, there was neither."
Cons: "Plane seating was tight"
Pros: "Staff was wecoming and friendly"
Cons: "Couldn't even access united's flight map without paying for movies. Seats are very small, large neighbor next to me used my armrest the whole flight and generally spilled into my seat."
Pros: "I received an unexpected free upgrade to first class. Two thumbs up!"
Cons: "No complaints. Every aspect of the flight met or exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "One hour delay, no microphone to hear what the desk staff was actually announcing, desk staff were also completely unprofessional. Made my connecting flight by less than a minute thanks to SPRINTING through the airport because of the delay - a less able bodied person would not have made it. Overall ridiculous and dissappointing"
Cons: "The fligjht diidnt happen. I double booked the flight. But when I tried to adjust it I wasn't allowed to without crazy fees. This was after an agent told me that he would wave the fee. Their not on the same page and they do not honor what you're told."
Pros: "The United Club Lounge is the best."
Cons: "It was cancelled in the early AM, due to equipment failure"
Cons: "No entertainment provided"
Pros: "My mother was the one that flew. But after intense interrogation she divulged that the planes were on time and employees pleasant. Nothing stood out good or bad. Just the way a flight should be, in my opinion."
Pros: "Plane was filthy & disgusting! I asked the stewardess for a towel to wipe down my table that was covered in sticky gunk, she just handed me a Wet One. Passengers table next to me was the same. My checked was only 3 lb over the 50 lb limit. United actually made me take 3 pairs of dirty jeans out & carry them with me in a Target shopping bag! Ridiculous!"
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight slept through the flight"
Cons: "The delay of the flight"
Pros: "Early arrivals"
Cons: "On the express smaller planes you have to gate check your rollarboard suitcase which is fine but if your in first class they dont have a separate tag from economy class so i got my bag last even tho i was in first."
Pros: "Econ Plus was nice. Flight was fine."
Cons: "GA called for all "people with disabilities" to board first. How about simply asking for people who need a little extra time...PWD's is a bit of a label that doesn't work for me. While we were boarding the white female FA made a snide comment that maybe passengers should not bring more than one bag. She was also rude to the other FA."
Pros: "Nothing flight got canceled and they couldn't even get me out the same day .. Due to there Maintnence issue most horrible expierence"
Cons: "Everything ruined my boyfriends bday with there Maintnence problem"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed. The second waited until we were completely loaded to tell us we didn't have a flight crew and we had to wait 110 minutes for them to fly in! When I asked the customer service agent at the gate about alternatives she got rude and asked if I had listened to the announcement? The announcement said nothing about alternatives. This near two hour delay caused me to have to spend $43 to get a ride from the airport since I would not get in until after midnight."
Cons: "The wifi onboard was broken. There were no t.v. sets to watch."
Pros: "not to mention non existent entertainment. TV never worked no.map. no interesting info from pilot unlike last pilot we'd had on this flight who'd given us great information on our flight. no apologies. we were told about 50 tvs were out on the flight. the chicken meal was delicious pasta awful (we shared because of that). the couscous salad which lady flight had been super this time was too spicy for us much less if we'd bought a child. if this is the positive ... we got there safely and the boarding was better than sometimes."
Cons: "see above. united which ran this flight more intent on telling you what you can't do than making it a pleasant flight. no entertainment. 75 per cent of food was inedible. will be looking at Ba in future or Virgin despite being United mileage plus members. how about some customer service training?! as a repressed brit living in us I'm not normally a picky passenger. but a smile? sorry the movies aren't working? hi? just the greeting over the intercom makes you feel as if you are an inconvenience. not friendly skies thus time. put off."
Pros: "They have a snack and a drink on such a short flight."
Cons: "No leg room or entertainment. Receiving baggage after the flight took 15 min (carry-on baggage)"
Cons: "Flight delayed and I had to literally run to the next flight"
Pros: "First leg had free streaming on your own device, which was awesome!"
Pros: "Everything! My grandparents needed special assistance with wheelchair and the crew was very helpful!"
