As a frequent flyer I either use Lufthansa or British Airways
the fight was cancelled. I arrived to the airport from another city, Oxford,hiring a taxi as it was too early and cold to take a bus. I am 60 years old and after having waken up very early and nobody had told me that the flight was cancelled.
Flight was cancelled without notice due to Lufthansa pilot strike. Trip could not be rearranged in the short time available.
My flights were cancelled by Lufthansa so I had to cancel my trip. The fact that you don't appear to know this suggests your communications and organisation are every bit as bad as I thought they were
Gave four stars for value because of baggage charge.
flight with Lufthansa- excellent. flight with Austrian-nightmare- unrealistically too short time between Vie and LHR as a result the airline lost my luggage which when delivered and plundered.
can be little cheaper because time was 4 hour and no luggage to deck
Last minute booking, ticket too expensive but unavoidable.
Smooth connection in FFT, clean airport, friendly staff, brilliant service on flight with crew who genuinely seemed to enjoy their jobs.
Flight home was excellent. Flight out was delayed by 45 minutes meaning I missed my coach connection at Detroit.
Friendly service; on time!
Was dissappoibted that the meal from a predominantly Muslim country was not halal ! So did not have a meal
