Very crowded, unorganized, people pile up to the gate before their seat is called. Becomes a cluster. Why not board first and premium then start main cabin from the back?
Pros: "The space between passangers and the steps the crew took to ensure our safety."
Cons: "Nothing it was a perfect flight."
Pros: "Fact that there’s a flight available to get me-from a to b, Crew were friendly-great, cabins clean."
Cons: "Expensive, Delayed flight, unable to hear and understand boarding announcements, No WiFi, and a magazine that caters to the top 5% of passengers. Then to top it off a lost bag and over 2.0 hours spent either on hold or awaiting a call back to resolve issues with my last bag-totally unacceptable"
Cons: "Boarding process was really poor. Long line for just dropping a bag off that I already paid for."
Pros: "The plane was not full, so the stewardess put my wife and I by the exit seats. I am a tall guy and really appreciated it!"
Cons: "Both connecting flights were very tight time wise, and the gates were at opposite ends of the terminal. Couldn’t delta flights be closer together?"
Cons: "Healthier snacks instead of just candy and cookies... an apple for example would be great."
Pros: "Super nice gate agent, doing her best to get us out on time but very clear spoken and nice about it!"
Cons: "No monitors for entertainment!? FA was just ok, nothing bad but sure not a standout."
Pros: "Staff from Check in to aircraft very pleasant. Snack choice in Coach impressive."
Pros: "Pilot and his ability to maneuver the turbulence. Also variety of snacks."
Cons: "Felt hot in the plane."
Pros: "We got on we took off and arrived on schedule just as it should be."
Overall pleasant flight . The lunch was exceptional! Delicious chicken curry with perfect rice and amazing chocolate (Sacher torte) for desert. I have not eaten such a good airplane meal in a very, very long time.
Original Flight was cancelled Then Baggage was lost on rebooked flight
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and lots of leg room. Food was good."
Pros: "Crew was ok, food and drinks was enough for 1,30 hour flight."
Cons: "I really expected more from Austrian airlines."
Pros: "Plane was clean. Staff helpful"
Cons: "We booked our seats online and later at check in received boarding passes with totally different seats. Ordered kids meals and was informed that they dont have any for our kids :("
Pros: "I was able to get good seats, front of the plane. 3rd row for all my flights. pretty decent leg room"
Cons: "flight was delayed, 2nd Austtian flight delayed in the same day"
Pros: "On time, best connection for me, earning miles on my program. I booked based on time and cost, didn't even pay attention to what airline."
Cons: "No food, plane felt pretty old and not so clean. Smaller seats than the other flights I had with Lufthansa. Otherwise, it was fine. I had a pretty bad earache on that particular flight, so I liked it less than I might have otherwise. Something didn't feel right, pressure wrong or something."
Pros: "Everything went very well! Boarding was easy, the flight was smooth with little turbulence, we arrived on time, the crew was friendly and attentive, the food was good!"
Cons: "Everything was very smooth, except that the seats were not very comfortable!"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and professional Even got some sleep, not easy on economy seats but on this flight they were actually good."
Cons: "The other travelers were loud rude and didn't listen to instructions. Also clapping loudly upon landing and it's very annoying. Parents don't take responsibility for their children."
Pros: "Everything was awesome best flight i had in my life."
I purchased a tickket with Lufthansa but "operated by" United Airlines. At the airport United staff were unable to help me select a seat on the portion of the flight actually run by Lufthansa. Nor was I able to check in over the web, possibly to self-select my seat. The link given in the check in email claimed my flight record locator ID was invalid.
It was fine. No food nor entertainment since flight was short
Everything went very smoothly. Only issue, my movie screen was difficult to use. Unresponsive to touch commands. The crew was EXCELLENT 👍 Very helpful and accommodating. Upon arrival in London, the process was seemless. Highly recommend!
Pros: "The time between flights was good and the trip was very nice."
Cons: "Both trips were nice"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional, courteous, attentive, and the only parts of this experience that made this flight bearable."
Cons: "My partner and I orginially selected a window and middle seat. When we boarded the plane we were switched to the two middle seats of a 4 seat row. Honouring our original requests would have made a world of difference. If Lufthansa cannot do this much then I do not want to fly with them."
Cons: "Business class had economy seats which is not what you expect especially for an overnight flight"
Pros: "The crew was great. A woman in front of us had a seizure mid-flight and the crew handled it professionally with great care. They were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The lines when we arrived at the airport were very long. Had to wait over an hour to check in. Seemed like more people should have been working the counter. I missed my connection on the flight over to Europe."
Cons: "Missed this flight because my first flight was a cancelled flight, missed intercontinental connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew nice. Plenty of food"
Cons: "Boarding was very chaotic. Very long lines and not managed well"
Pros: "Good variety of on-board entertainment"
Cons: "We were in last row of our section of the plane and space was very cramped, especially for my 6'1" husband. It was not a very physically comfortable flight."
Pros: "Fell asleep and didn’t even realise. Finnair is very friendly and the staff are super nice. I was very thirsty and asked for two cups of water instead of one and the lady was not hesitant to give me two cups in quick succession. Very good air company"
Cons: "Nothing really too bad, you get what you expected. May of been nice to have a free sandwich as it’s a non stop flight - this is because Lufthansa has one stopover and offers a free sandwich and drink."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and polite, food was good"
Cons: "Would have preferred to watch one comedy movie. The crazy rich Asians was on a lighter side of a movie but I had seen that one already."
Pros: "Simple morning flight. Not at all full. Left on time, arrived early. Plane was new. Crew was happy. What more does one need? They were beta testing a new WiFi service. Free, but not yet ready for prime time."
Cons: "I purchased a ticket that included one checked bag but their system said I purchased a ticked which didn’t include any checked luggage and I had to pay $60 to check my bag. Very frustrating!"
Pros: "New A350 seating positions The attentive and respectful staff The good food and drinks choices The on time arrivals record, no matter what delay they seem to have good efficiency built in"
Cons: "The boarding in Singapore- Finnair are seemingly punished by being gated at the furthest end of the walkway. The security is slow due to the two single lines of screening, even though we are all in transit or have already been through checks elsewhere"
Pros: "Check- in to arrival was what I would expect from a flight. It was my first flight with Finnair and I will fly with this airline again."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: ".My flight left on time ,smooth landing and the cabin temperature seemed more normal than the usual cold interior. Cabin crew were friendly and helpful from JFK to Helsinki and Helsinki back to JFK . Overall a good airline but far from premium."
Pros: "The shorter flight to Zurich was on a smaller plane than the overseas one, but I'm not sure what model. It seemed about average for comfort; overhead bins held my backpack easily, while I find many older planes do not. Coffee or soda was free, everything else was for sale. Attendants on this flight were very busy and very friendly. Check-in was run very efficiently. My check-through luggage arrived intact. Overall a good experience on a two-hour journey. Plane arrived about 10 minutes ahead of schedule, which is always a plus."
Cons: "No real issues with this flight. it accomplished my objective - to get to Switzerland intact, with a minimum of fuss."
Cons: "We had to sit on the runway for a very long time after landing and I missed my connecting flight. It also took a very long time to get a hotel assignment because I was stuck in Chicago overnight. The finnair air agents at ohare were not very understanding or helpful. I was sent from their line to American Airlines and then back again. They were slow. We waited in the line for a long time for someone to come and help us. overall they were not very apologetic regarding the fact that I was stuck there overnight. It took soooo long to get to the hotel. I arrived there well after midnight. Overall it was a very unpleasant experience. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY FLIGHTS ARE BOOKED SO CLOSE TOGETHER. NO LAYOVER TIME IN BETWEEN MEANS MISSED CONNECTIONS! THIS HAPPENED BOTH WAYS ON MY TRIP. VERY ANNOYING"
Pros: "We were kept informed about the delay"
Cons: "Has to wait 14 hours in Helsinki for a 25 minute connecting flight"
The United aircrew team salvaged what had been a dire experience sorting bag transfer/possible weight penalty and delay I getting off
Pros: "Boarding and deplaning was organized and efficient."
Cons: "The flight was completely full, including every middle seat. It did NOT feel safe to have a completely full flight during COVID. Some passengers kept on taking off their masks to talk to each other, completely defeating the purpose of the mask. I will not fly United again during COVID."
Cons: "The TV control pads are a major FAIL. And all of the baggage charges are despicable piracy."
Pros: "We landed safe"
Cons: "I Paid for preferred seats. When we got to the airport our seat assignment changed. We were not in the seats I paid extrs for. No money offered or returned."
Pros: "The pilot and stewardess were very pleasant to chat with the stewardess was sweet, pleasant to chat with. All around enjoyable She likes her job as does the captain."
Cons: "I fell getting out of my small seat breaking my glasses and hitting my head on the top of seat’nnn"
Pros: "Smooth ride, landing and take-off Courteous staff"
Cons: "1. Very tiny seats, had to sit cramped on a 5 hr flight even though the neighbors were very nice 2. Space for carry on was over well before all passengers on boarded. I don't understand how this is possible when you know everyone can carry 1 carry-on and 1 personal bag. Even though I had a seat towards the front, I had to go right at the back to stow my carry-on. This caused me to de-board last!"
Cons: "worst food ever internationally. And I've been to 43 countries. crackers as snack, only one meal on an 11 hr flight, ran out of fizzy water, for sandwich, I had to take off one layer of bread to taste the meat at all (thinest layer ever seen with only two dots of a pesto."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "I understand in today's world co chairing is norm. However I booked LH because of my past experience with their service which is great. We got put on UA instead and that was a let down. The food on the flight to FRA was terrible (and I am comparing to other airline food, not what we eat at home). They do not have drinks as LH does unless you pay. So I did not enjoy getting stuck with UA"
Pros: "Food and crew were fabulous"
Cons: "Entertainment is a train wreck - not work after paid 7.99 x 2"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Departure and arrival were bith smooth and staff was friendly amd attentive. Kayak has been my go to when booking flightd and hotels."
