Cons: "There were a couple of flight delays. Other that that, I love Lufthansa."
Pros: "TSA in Philadelphia were very rude and aggressive. This is not Lufthansa's fault, but LH can at least pass on word that their passengers were hassled unnecessarily by TSA personnel."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good food served by this airline"
Cons: "The woman seated next to me had the worst body odor ever and this was a 10 hour flight-nearly brought me to hurl. She was the mother of s flight attendant as well, and was constantly brought amenities from the first class cabin. Really not appropriate for the rest of us in premium economy"
Cons: "I had ordered pre flight online duty free shopping. Got a confirmation e-mail telling me that articles were reserved for me and I should approach crew members on board for the articles I had reserved. Reality however was that my pre ordered articles were not registered in their system :-("
Pros: "The crew was alright but there was very little leg space in the economy cabin"
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "The worst food I have ever had the displeasure of having in my mouth. The staff kept bumping into me and therefore did not sleep at all."
Cons: "Flew to Grand Rapids turned around to Chicago and then flew back to Grand Rapids"
Pros: "Very friendly atmosphere at boarding gate & helpful crew on journey, plus surprisingly good food foe economy class made for positive feel to this trip. Add to it the fact I caught a movie I'd missed seeing at cinema plus even getting a few hours sleep, this was probably one of my better long haul flights in recent times."
Pros: "On time, Staff were excellent"
Cons: "Poor snack (sugary cookie) Big rush to make connection in Frankfurt, almost missed it. Should allow at least 2 hours to connect as they use buses to transfer from plane to terminal and often have to go through security again."
Pros: "Reliability, usual Lufthansa service"
Cons: "Delay due to technical problem with the aircraft, however better that than any consequences of that. Food is rudimentary, and there is no vegetarian version of the sandwich any more."
Pros: "The crew was super nice. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "My gluten free meal had a carrot cake... the first ingredient was Wheat! If you have any type of allergy do not trust their food!"
Pros: "Good service, friendly staff and easy boarding process, good food and on time departure"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "seat was very comfortable with good leg room. Crew was very polite"
Cons: "coming thru the cabin for garbage pickup more often"
Pros: "Kind staff. We were served a very healthy snack which was also delicious. Flight was delayed due to fog in Porto but oh well! No big problema."
Cons: "No delays."
Pros: "The in flight snack was surprisingly diverse and tasty."
Cons: "We had to take a bus from the gate to the plane, which is fine. But we stood on the bus at the gate for 10 minutes after it was completely full before it finally drove to the plane. Then when we were just outside the plane we had to wait again for several minutes before they would let us off."
Pros: "Very helpful gate attendants. The food was delicious and the movies were all current and kept us entertained for nine hours!"
Cons: "Very cramped legroom. Cabin was extremely hot. There was a man binge drinking in the seat across the aisle. He should’ve been cut off at some point, but he kept drinking. He was a worry."
Pros: "A short but very pleasant flight and food was served, excellent in every category."
Cons: "Nothing, it was the best short flight I've ever had. The staff were very attentive and did a great job of keeping everyone happy."
Cons: "Plane was full thus carry on roller bags had to be checked- big security concern re theft"
Cons: "3:30 hrs delay lost my convection no one to talk to or any help they gave me nothing I had to stay overnight at my expense n pay new ticket hotel food taxi etc nobody will help or respond for anything"
Cons: "the ground personnel were not nice. They also did not seem to know what they were doing. Inconsistent communication. No patience with customers."
Cons: "The woman who checked me in at the start of my journey from TLV on 2/17/20 provided exceptional customer service. She was very professional and customer service excelled beyond measure. Thank you. My return flight on 3/23/20 was enjoyable and pleasant. Bathrooms on plane very well maintained. I will definitely fly El Al in the future!"
Cons: "The Seat was not comfortable and the entertainment console poor , I guess due to an old plane. Other wise excellent"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the plain was great, the food was tasty."
Pros: "I had a good experience purchasing my El Al ticket through Kayak. I was able to select my seat--exit row seats at no extra cost! (although the ticket was admittedly expensive). El Al itself was fine. Service was fine. Food was fine for airplane food. (The bread was actually good, much better than the food on America airlines in general). El Al is known for their tight security and we certainly experienced that. However, I found myself NOT annoyed by it. Because I and my traveling partner were not Jewish or Israeli, we were singled out and interrogated with extra questions. This doesn't sound good but it meant we didn't have to wait in the regular line and kind of got the VIP treatment. We were treated very nicely. Someone went out of their way to get us a seat while we waited for them to inspect the dust particle samples on our wallet and shoes. TSA makes my blood boil but the security through El Al was somehow a pleasant experience. Overall, I was satisfied."
Cons: "The seats were a little narrow. Unlike other reviewers, I did not find the crew particularly friendly."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good service and a pleasant flight."
Cons: "Seats were crammed. No TV entertainment. The terminal was at a corner of the airport with no food..."
Pros: "Fairly empty flight. Decent movie selections. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "I shouldn’t have upgraded to Economy+ b/c the front row (in Economy) has no where to store your things except overhead, the extra legroom is negated by everyone using your row to cross between aisles and the screen that folds out from the armrest wouldn’t stay upright & required constant adjustment. No WiFi is disappointing for a 12+ hr flight."
Pros: "Crew was unusually helpful and nice. There were 2 plain clothes air marshalls on the flight. Made me feel much more secure than any other airline."
Cons: "My new Samsung Note 8 wouldn't charge on the old El Al planes. Either with 110 or 220 adapters."
Cons: "Storage is too small for trolley or even a computer bagpack"
Pros: "We had to do eberything through phone calls. Luggage orders. Eticket.etc."
Pros: "The flight was an hour delay, they change the airplane to an old one that didn't have tv working and ask a few time for an I pad and didn't get any"
The team of flight attendants assigned to Economy class were very attentive. They assisted my disabled husband with the use of an aisle chair so that he could go to the bathroom. They were respectful and patient with him when it took awhile for him to finish. After the flight we went to the ER and he had a bladder infection.
Staff are attentive, pleasant and responsive. Food was wonderful. Wish that we didn’t have to board buses to get to the plane in Rome but went smoothly. Flight was very smooth but ITA can’t control weather. Left late but got there almost on time. Great flight.
A lot of things could have been better. They lost our luggage. We missed our connection from YVR to Naples when we arrived in Zurich and then we got re-routed to Rome and then Naples. We eventually got to Naples but our bags didn’t. Our experience at the lost luggage in the Naples was not at all reassuring. They didn’t seem that interested in our problem. I did a live chat with Swiss customer service and all they could do is tell me to follow the process. Meanwhile we’ve had to spend significant money on clothes and I have to replace medications. This has meant our trip so far has been totally different than what we had planned. It’s not clear that our baggage will ever show up which means we will have lost significant amount of clothing and other things and our two month trip to Europe will have more problems than good memories. So far we are not happy.
Not a very modern plane with no entertainment and a sandwich and juice served on board.
the customs line was total chaos. staff were exceptionally rude. was almost late for flight because I was directed to two different lines. once I finally got on the plane it was great. Great choice of movies and games. Staff was nice. the food could be better but I'm happy I was fed. exiting was easy.
Terrible. Flight was cancelled with less than 10 hours notice. They added an extra flight to the itinerary and separated our weats which I specifically had already paid to have together.
Flight was missed due to delayed departure from Rome Luggage lost on Rome.
Missed connecting flight because flight out of Rome was delayed. Had to rent car to final destination. Luggage was lost from Rome. Delta is blaming Ita Airlines and Ita Airlines is blaming. And as of right know neither airline wants to be responsible for our luggage or refund or missed flight. Will not book trips through third party companies such as Kayak again.
Terrible service, uninterested employees, inefficient boarding process, and marginal set up on plane. Staff make the airline - good luck with this one.
Never went to Rome's airport and it was beautiful!!
