  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Australia flight deals.
  • Australia receives flights from the UK at many of its larger international airports, which also provide good onward connections to regional and domestic airports. For destinations in Western Australia, Perth Airport (PER) is the best airport to fly into. Brisbane Airport (BNE) and Sydney Airport (SYD) are on the east coast, while Melbourne Airport (MEL) and Adelaide Airport (ADL) are in the south east, so consider which one of these makes most sense depending on where your holiday will start. Cairns Airport (CNS) is in the north-east of the country and is a good option from the UK if you want to explore the very north of Queensland, while Darwin International Airport (DRW) services the Northern Territory.
  • If you are looking at flights to Australia so you can visit Kakadu National Park – a World Heritage site – think about flying into Darwin. This is the closest airport to Kakadu National Park and from here, you can complete your journey with a 3h road trip.
  • It is easy to exchange money in Australia. There are foreign currency counters in all the main airports, and it is also possible to use ATMs to withdraw Australian currency for your trip – please note that some of the more remote towns may not have ATMs available.
  • If you are travelling to the centre of Australia to see Ayers Rock and the surrounding area, consider flying into Sydney from the UK and booking a connecting flight to Alice Springs Airport (ASP). A direct flight takes around 3h and from there, you will need to hire a car for the 5-6h drive to Ayers Rock.
  • If you are travelling with children under the age of 7 and hiring a car to drive to and from the airport, it is mandatory to use an age-appropriate child car seat when driving in Australia. You should be able to reserve a car seat from the car hire company before you arrive. If travelling by taxi, be aware that, with the exception of New South Wales, it is not mandatory to use such a seat in a taxi, as long as the child can sit on the lap of an adult passenger in the back seat. In New South Wales, it is mandatory for children who are under a year old to be secured in some form of child car seat in a taxi, so you may want to consider bringing your seat from home.

Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was very polite and very helpful. Boarding process was smooth and easy, however, the Singapore airport has security checks at every gate prior to boarding. This meant that after clearing this security process at the gate, bathrooms were not available until after boarding the flight and drinking water stations were not easily found in the secure boarding area. The aircraft was comfortable, menus were distributed early so that meal options could be made with full information in advance. The food was good and made available at routine intervals."
Cons: "On a 14 hour flight, staying well hydrated is very critical and difficult. It would have been nice for the crew to make more frequent trips through the cabin to offer just water refills to keep passengers hydrated and reduce plastic cup usage."

Pros: "Super good crew."

Pros: "Crew were helpful and attended to any needs that we requested. As I am a big person the seat is never that comfortable but Singapore Airlines seating is more spacious than other companies I have flown with."
Cons: "The food was not too attractive, better variety of main meals"

Pros: "crew handled the tough crowd well, but were not extremely hospitable"
Cons: "food was disgusting"

Cons: "I think the food in our flight was not that good.."

Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Seats on this aircraft have very upright seats. Not very comfy"

Pros: "All crew members are very friendly and helpful, good service."
Cons: "All over flight i feel good time, i don't feel boring all friendly staff, good service choice of food i like."

Pros: "The crew Were exceptional ."
Cons: "If The seat recline could go down a bit more innpremium economy, that would be perfect"

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Better food, better selection movies"

Pros: "Friendly crew and spacious."
Cons: "Food could be better"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "More tasty snacks throughout the flight"

Cons: "Singapore airlines use their antique aged flights for services to chc.unconfortable and a poor in-flight entertainment system"

Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."

Pros: "Basics are covered. TV screen is big but otherwise nothing special."
Cons: "It is so annoying they want you to pay an extra $20 to pre book any seat. If you need the extra $20 that much, charge me in the original fare! Don't nickel and dime me. At check in they couldn't even get my child seated beside me although a change was made last minute at the gate. Every other airline I've flown recently was better. Sri Lankan and Emirates FAR better service."

Cons: "Ran out of options for dinner and could not eat the macaroni cheese they had on offer, so got 2 small packets of nuts instead...international flight running out of food options? Pretty slack. A part of the interior wall fell off onto my foot upon take off and I had to hold it in place for a while until a hostess came....doesn’t give you the best feeling when the plane starts breaking on take off. One of the male stewards was appalling towards a young mum I sat next too...too the extent of giving her dirty looks because she spilled a bit of water on the seat and then told her she had to pack everything away she was using, including the baby wipes! I stepped in and told him how this was not ok and all other staff members were helpful and he was making this Mum upset. He should not be working for such a people friendly reputable airline! Maybe Jetstar instead! Was appalled at the entire flight to be honest!"

Pros: "Food, service"

Pros: "Food, service"

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "Boarding was great. Staff was cordial. Excellent flight."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."

Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The food for Premium Economy was very poor. The choices were substandard and the food at some meals was inedible. Very disappointing for the price of the tickets. The cabins and equipment seemed old and jaded."

Pros: "Very attentive and super awesome crew."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Efficient, comfortable."

Pros: "Excellent service and attitude from ALL crew! Roomy premier economy!"

Pros: "Service is always excellent"
Cons: "Food however was very disappointing. Surprising as Singapore Airlines pride themselves on quality and the food was poor :-("

Cons: "Nil"

Cons: "Because the flight from IAD to London was cancelled, I never made it to this flight."

Pros: "Fantastic flight attendants never needed anything just a 1st class job definitely a 5 star airline thanks for everything"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "This time I made the mistake of flying with my kids (4 and 6). The flight or them was last minute (booked less than 8 hours before take off) so there were no pre-planned kids meals etc. The in cabin team were awesome! They made sure they go a choice of meals, that they had things to do, that they were enjoying the flights. This on top of the usual awesome that they have."
Cons: "It's still in Huston. Flying economy isn't the same as flying business but my bank account says I need the cheaper option. Can we please move this flight to DFW instead? :-)"

Pros: "Friendliness and efficiency of crew. Comfortable seats and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not much. This airline is up there with the best."

Pros: "Natalie is a friendly cheery diligent flight attendant who needs special mention. (Sigapore to Brusane fight 6.1.18)"

Pros: "Was very old plane but was good"
Cons: "Food and crew was well"

Pros: "The cabin crew are very helpful and friendly. I sat at the end of the row in the upper deck. After the gate door closed , they let me sit in the empty sit away from the toilets . During the flight they’re around with water and juices to make sure we’re dehydrated,"

Cons: "Crew was very poor in responding to any requests. I am usually very quite and light on demands as i hardly hit call button on the seat to get any assistance, but during meal, I was asked about drink and I opted for Ginger ale. Crew said, she will get back to me and I did not hear from her for another 10 mins, then there was repeat serve of drinks and I was asked if i needed any thing and asked the same drink, but then I was asked to wait. After I had finished off my meal and ready to go to sleep, someone was bringing my drink out and I then respectfully say no to it as it was bit late after the meal and asked for water instead and did not like the look on the face of the crew member. I saw it happening with other passengers as well and was under the impression, the whole crew performance was pretty poor and SIA was not up to its high-standards as I always like to fly with them. I will look for different option next time"

Cons: "The seats and entertainment system on our flight were in need of an upgrade. The seat padding was well worn and uncomfortable. The entertainment system is one of the old “pop-out the remote from the armrest” ones with a very average interface and display."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Aircond isn’t working at seat 60 onwards. Warm. Sweaty."

Pros: "Singapore service is always outstanding"
Cons: "temp on plane was freezing and even two blankets did not suffice. Everyone was really cold."

Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Why are the slippers/socks not distributed before take off or already in the seat pocket? Why is the food order taken after take of and not before? Why does singapore airline have old seats I new planes? What happened to the earlier leader? Friendly staff alone does not make the deal. And given ticket prices SQ is not attractive any more for me."

Pros: "Great flight amazing service"

Pros: "For as long 14 hour journey they sure make it comfortable."

Pros: "I actually loved the whole trip. The aircraft still looked like it was brand new on the inside even though I'm sure that it has probably been in the air for a few years now. The service was great from the seemingly effortless takeoff and landing by the pilots to the flight attendants being very efficient and caring. The ambient temperature of the cabin was great. I had a wonderful experience and when I return home I will not hesitate to book with EVA again for any of my international flight needs."
Cons: "It's not really even something that I didn't like because I know learning a second language is hard any way but every once in a while when the flight attendants made announcements they would either run English words together into one word or pronounce it a little wrong but I still could understand everything that they were saying. So if I have to suggest something that is all that I can think of and it isn't even a bad thing at all. Thank you for everything!"

Pros: "I love the price, all staff was kind and helpful and the seats are comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like the food. Most of it made my stomach upset so I didn't finish and landed very hungry. The entertainment was limited as well. For a 13+ hour flight I was disappointed with the amount of TV shows and movies I had access to. I would still recommend EVA to friends and family with a warning to bring approved food and entertainment."

Cons: "wasn't offered cocktail service...had to inquire"

Your staff is excellent -period,,!!! Its , hard to find better help , all,,, very professional, caring--, fast, great to work with such as over head, retrials, snacks, etc!! Thank you for a good overall experience !! John Carlisle NYC and Connecticut ."
Cons: "more vegetarian meals on an Asian flight would be smarter, as Asians are not meat mongers like us caucasians. The quality of food served is much above average airline food,,, you have a good vendor ,, much appreciated,, thank you . The cabin is cold more blankets ( I had none) most of us had nothing to keep us warm. thank you EVA for allowing us to comment, overall ,,you are fantastic !! John C."

Pros: "Food was OK, not much to expect from economy class, but at least the flight attendants were more experienced than the CGK-TPE flight in Dec 2016."

Cons: "The movie selection, although vast, was not great. I resorted to downloaded Netflix on my tablet."

Pros: "I got a very good seat."
Cons: "Qatar in Belgrade didn't tell me about alchocol bottle I bought in the Duty Free and that i could not go with it all the way to melbourne even bag was sealed and receipt was visible.

Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."

Pros: "Food was excellent. Service was excellent."

Pros: "The overall experience"

Pros: "Helpful and friendly crew"

Pros: "Films Service"

Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"

Pros: "Our meals were luke warm at best while the bread was still semi frozen. Food quality has always been low on Qatar flights but this time was the absolute worst. I fly with Qatar for work everything 4 months and that's solely due to convenience."

Pros: "-Cleanliness -on time arrival"

What a way to start our holidays."

Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."

Cons: "Luggage was lost"

Pros: "Awesome staff, super delicious food. Missed the flight, but airlines covered stay in Hotel in Doha. So we hot extra vacation day In Qatar with nice food and stay in a country we have never been"

Pros: "High quality gluten free meals (best I've had on Qatar Airways)."
Cons: "Seating needs to be more spacious."

Pros: "About the same vegetarian food was served at almost every meal of the 13 hour flight."
Cons: "Need to provide more variety in food for long-haul flights. The food was not at all appetizing. ---- Entertainment should have more choices."

Pros: "Flight was good. Cabin crew very good. Food good."
Cons: "Qatar Airways check in at Heathrow was a dis-organised shambles. Arrival at Qatar Airport passport control was even worse at 12.45 am. Long queues,very slow to move, police checking passports unbelievably slowly. Retina scanners should speed up the process. Why then take 5 minutes to check each passport? Poor advert for Qatar, after nearly an hour of queuing I would think most passengers wished they had gone somewhere else."

Pros: "The timing was spot on and I had no major issues. The staff was great. They showed that they truly value customer service and were patient"

Cons: "1-one hour delay in departure. Although pilot tries his best to reduce the delay time but still lost our connection flight. it is known that the whole operation is complex but still believe that effective cooperation by flight crew, ground personnel and others could result in a better outcome. the hotel chosen by the office at airport was not satisfactory. Qatar Airways customers deserve better treatment."

Pros: "Of the enormous amount of entertainment available, even I found something to keep me occupied."
Cons: "Perhaps boarding."

Pros: "The ecperience"
Cons: "Food was poor"

Pros: "Friendly staff at boarding and on flight. Very attentive."
Cons: "Food was not as nice as other airlines and my 11 yo daughter was only provided normal adult meal. For full service airline actually went thirsty - constant water should be a given."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Crew some times get angry and work without passion"

Cons: "Caused me a 20+ hour layover in dubai in a horrible hotel"

Pros: "Great food and entertainment and the service was exceptional."

Pros: "The food and entertainment on board was the best I’ve ever experienced on a flight."
Cons: "The headset didn’t work properly so had to listen to music and movies through half the earphones."

Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"

Pros: "Everything. Nothing negative."

Pros: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was forgotten and when I asked for it I received dried red cabbage and a dried up tomato and a grated carrot and something I didn't know what it was. The bread was not gluten free on this meal so I couldn't eat it. Unlike the first leg of my journey this meal didn't have my name or seat number on. I feel like it was put together once I asked where my meal was. Snacks offered but not gluten free so was very hungry from previous flight."

Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."

Pros: "Emirates is a great airline with friendly staff and an amazing fleet of aircraft"
Cons: "I had updated for my flight from Jeddah to Dubai, but found that business class passengers were not given priority boarding and had to wait for all other passengers to board. The plane also took off late."

Pros: "I was upgraded to business class. Very nice"

Pros: "Quantas Operated by Emirates is definitely not Emitrates standard."

Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."

Cons: "Late boarding. Thought I was flying emirates and turned out to be Qantas. Seats not as comfy. They lost my luggage. Took 2 days to get it back."

Pros: "A380 economy cabin, excellent legroom for a 6"2 bloke like me. Seat was wide enough too. Really good food and a cracking entertainment system. Happily fly them again."

Pros: "Arriving at Perth is always a hassle with delayed baggage unloading. Can Emirates engage their own staff to expedite this activity. The Perth baggage handlers are too slow, particularly when on penalty rates on Sundays."

Pros: "Plane was almost full, had a spare seat in the middle. Meals were good. Staff were run off their feet but coped well."
Cons: "The flight from Brisbane to Dubai then to Barcelona was excellent compared to the return flight from Dubai. Dubai to Brisbane flight, seats were very uncomfortable, seat cushions were hard. Toilets ran out of paper and hand towels, I had to Inform a staff member. Cabin had a peculiar odour."

Pros: "Great legroom, quiet plane, seat free next to me"
Cons: "Not much"

Pros: "It was a smooth and pleasant journey."
Cons: "Menu options were somewhat limited"

Pros: "Food was great! The aircraft was very nice and the flight attendants were so helpful! Only a 3 1/2 hour flight and it was the best way I have flown!"

Pros: "The comfort of the flight was unbeatable. The crew was great. The 13 he flight didn't feel that long."
Cons: "When boarding my kids and I were separated. This is not recommended at all. I don't know why you can't keep families together."

Cons: "There were not proper announcements for delay of flight. Flight moved from gate while overheads bins doors were still open, lots of passengers were still standing, walking in the aisles. Even though I told Steward not to wake me for the meals but still I was woken up 3 times for two serving of meals."

Cons: "The crew was not friendly and very slow. I was flying with an infant and a child and have had excellent experiences on a number of other less expensive airlines and I am disappointed that I had bad service on Emirates business class."

Pros: "Boarding process followed at LHR #3 was well done and organized, made good use of passenger's time. Desk personnel at LHR #3 was professional, as was crew on aircraft into Dubai."
Cons: "No breakfast (had sticker on seat to wake up if needed) and ended up awake whole flight. Flight for LHR to Dubai did not provide breakfast although 1950 -> 0550 red-eye flight"

Pros: "great lie flat bed, was too tired to take advantage of the service"

Pros: "This was my first time getting a bump up to First. Loved the dining options and comfort level. Staff on board were wonderful. Shower a particular novelty but it did perk me up prior to landing."
Cons: "I cannot fault anything about his experience. Simply fantastic."

Pros: "Emirates flight was amazing"
Cons: "Bug in Kayak app cost me £60 through the flight not being confirmed and having to rebook. Be vary wary of the Kayak app."

Pros: "Timing, service, comfort"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The plane was wonderful. Even in Economy, the seats were very comfortable with lots of room, both leg and seat. It felt like I was in Business Class of any other airline I've been on."
Cons: "My flight had a luggage limit of 30kg, which sounds good, until you find you pay per kilo, not per piece when you're over."

Pros: "First time flying in double decker plon"
Cons: "I would have been happy to receive points for travel on star alliance"

Pros: "I felt that the crew kind of forgot about us; there were lots of trolleys going by with drinks but each presumed that we had been served. I also felt that the crew in this section weren't friendly. I know it was an extremely busy flight but there wasn't much eye contact with the some of the crew, I felt that the stewards (men) were the least friendly."
Cons: "The food was bland and boring but i do like having real knives and forks. The white wine choice wasnt good. The crew didn't seem that familiar with the types on offer, ie savignon blanc, chardonnay etc. They just handed you the wine and hoped it would be ok. I felt for such a long flight the crew could have announced that if anyone would like extra snax or drinks then feel free to call a member of the crew or even go to the kitchen and ask. Wifi was offered on the flight but it wasn't explained how to use it so I didn't have this facility as I couldn't connect! Once we asked it was explained but I still wasn't able to connect. Would be helpful if this could be explained / announced to the passengers."

Pros: "Emirates business class is excellent."
Cons: "Cannot think of anything to complain about."

Pros: "Safety, on time, A380 is better than B777 (comfort)"
Cons: "Food, i like the hot bread rather than cold bread"

Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Enough variety to pass the time."
Cons: "The aisles were blocked a lot of the time making it hard to get to the toilets."

Pros: "The A380 was much more comfortable way to fly than the 777"
Cons: "I disliked the food"

Pros: "Good space"
Cons: "It's unfortunate that when you order a special meal you dont get your drinks until after you have eaten your meal. and if you end up waiting then you end up having a cold meal. It would be great if this could be changed"

Cons: "There was only one hour of wifi, seriously? I mean Dubai is one of the nicest airports but maybe whats necessary is to be able to cater and not just put up even more redundant shops which lack people. People are traveling and might actually need to be in contact especially since flights are so spaced out"

Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Nothing was amiss"

Pros: "A passenger was felt sick ( breathing problem?? ) and crew members were very responsive to attend to him, by bringing in O2 bottle etc. Very impressive."
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Food and seat and entertainment"
Cons: "Check in time is too early (at least 90 hours before departure) Not part of sky team or star alliance"

Cons: "Considering that we’re in the middle of a pandemic no LH ground staff at Heathrow Airport was leading by example wearing protective equipment such as mask or gloves. Further, I found it inexplicably that almost every seat was taken on this flight. If LH knows that the flight is booked close to capacity I would have expected they do their part and due diligence by swapping to a bigger aircraft to help protect people and their customers, it’s not that they wouldn’t have other aircrafts grounded and ready to go... A reduced beverage service is all you can do, really? LH - very disappointing once again"

Pros: "Didn’t like anything. Mediocre all round."
Cons: "Disembarkation took 40 mins due to which most passengers struggled to catch connecting flights. Very poor service by Lufthansa to help delayed passengers."

Pros: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and good"

Pros: "Nothing at all, whole experience was incredibly stressful"
Cons: "The transfer was awful. Long line for the frankly bizarre security check despite never leaving the terminal, incredibly rude staff at Frankfurt airport, all wearing may we help badges, so kind of answered their own question. Check in staff once we had sprinted th length of the terminal very rude"

Pros: "Crew very helpful."
Cons: "Both flights late. Food was worthy rather than tasty. Seats small. Too much plastic - why not use non plastic cups. Sexist safety card."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "More varieties of whisky on board"

Cons: "The entertainment system broke down completely on the whole plane and the crew was sort of grumpy."

Pros: "on time."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Staff were ok, did all they could"
Cons: "Not enough information especially for people with connecting flights"

Pros: "Everything was on time and efficient."

Cons: "a bit late"

Pros: "Despite the short flight we were still given food and as always I love airline food. Free alcohol is always a bonus as well! Nice crew and timely take offs and landings. Could bring two hand luggage (backpack and suitcase) which I like even though I didn't have to pay extra!"
Cons: "No negatives."

Pros: "Very explanatory clear and responsive. There was a short delay they kept us informed clearly and responsibly. Excellent flight and superb performance. Very polite and helpful."

Pros: "Everything. The staff were absolutely lovely, the brand new fit out of the 777 is excellent and modern, the entertainment was great as was the food. Overrall really impressed."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt delayed, when we arrived we had no chance of making our connecting flight to Split yet no one told us. No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."

Pros: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"
Cons: "Lufthansa's narrowbodies have one of the most uncomfortable seats in the sky. These slimline seats are built with a central beam running vertically along the midline of the seat, making it very uncomfortable with your spine."

Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "No entertainment food Horrible"

Cons: "Online check-in did not work. When I checked in at the airport, I received only a middle seat."

Pros: "I like everything about Lufthansa in terms of quality and service"
Cons: "Punctuality. I fly lufthansa twice a week and I have yet to fly on time. There are always a delay."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Almost everything"

Cons: "Cancelled flight and transferring me on turkish airlines again the flight was delayed over three hours.,obviously we have missed our connection flight to Beirut and now waiting in front the hotel desk because the first flight to Beirut is 12:25 pm , I have lost 2 days from my holiday,I'm very tired and upset, I will never use kayak ever again and I will tell all my friends and family to avoid it."

Cons: "The flight was delayed . When we arrived in Frankfurt, there was a quie of 200m . After waiting 10 minutes, they asked us to go to other passport control . We had to walk onother 10 minutes to get there ."

Cons: "Not entertainment at all"

Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, take off delayed by just over an hour but the Crew were exceptional with providing updates and bringing around refreshments whilst we waited."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but outside that not much I can fault the airline for."

Pros: "Made up most of the time. Latrobe leaving due to queue."
Cons: "That I did not know in advance there was a snack. Would have odered vegan as it was had nothing."

Cons: "At the gates they said that nobody could bring more than one piece of carry-on items Dash completely catching Everyone by surprise. They took a backpack from me, and it has now been lost."

Cons: "It took ages to go through the security check, although I have mentioned that I have a flight connection that is due to leave nobody gave a s..t, so I missed my flight. Now I’m waiting at the airport"

Pros: "Everything was perfect ... pilots are so good and professional..!!)"

Cons: "Poor food on first leg. Sat by a man who was allowed to have 7 cans of beer. On second leg of journey I was willing to pay for food. The best choice for anyone trying to eat a healthy diet was pot noodles. Air Canada get 2 stars. Return journey on United gets 4stars."

Pros: "It’s nice that Lufthansa still gives food onboard"
Cons: "My Lufthansa flight left with 1hour delay"

Pros: "Smooth process. Regular updates."
Cons: "Late departure."

Pros: "Good attitude"

Pros: "Fast-track security, Lufthansa lounge in Heathrow T2 was fabulous, with incredibly attentive staff, flight stewards were extremely polite and also attentive. Great in flight snack and drinks. A real pleasure."
Cons: "The long walk at Frankfurt - but you can't blame the airline for the place the plane docks at."

Pros: "Friendly helpful staff."
Cons: "Delays."

Pros: "The food and drinks was very good."
Cons: "The flight was late."

Pros: "Easy check-in and helpful staff. I would absolutely fly with Lufthansa again"

Cons: "The plane lands a considerable distance from the airport, you walk across the tarmac in the rain to a bus, and then the bus ride is almost 15 minutes. I expect Lufthansa to have a better berth at Frankfurt."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Free refreshments. Funny cabin crew!"
Cons: "There was very confusing and contradictory information on what you can take with you on top of your cabin luggage. e.g. Can you or can you not take a small shoulder bag with you."

Pros: "Nie odbyl size powodu opuznienia samolotu z Chicago do Londynu"

Pros: "Flights were cancelled that day due to a storm, but Lufthansa were able to fly an empty aircraft from Rome to fly us from London to Frankfurt. Despite the circumstances, Lufthansa were able to still offer catering. Thank you for your cimmitment."
