I have taken Lufthansa to Europe (to Barcelona and to Venice). I really like them. I booked with them myself.
In October the cruise I was on ended in Rome and we got to the airport early and the flights were delayed to Frankfurt because of bad weather. We finally got on the plane after a few hours and sat on there for another hour and by the time we got to Frankfurt we had missed our fight to Vancouver.
Lufthansa put us up in a hotel and gave us shuttle tickets to the hotel and vouchers for food. They flew us home the next day.
They were very good as we were stressed and tired. They even gave us each a free phone call to let our relatives know we would be a day late.
I had a hotel booked in Vancouver for the night I arrived and they called them and changed it to the next night.
I would definitely take them again.
I seen KLM had a non stop flight which is only 9 1/2 hours so thought I would try them for the cruise in March.
Phabric -- Hate to tell you, but the AC and LH flights are one and the same. Operated by AC, with a LH codeshare. In addition SAS also has their code on that flight. I would just check out all three for pricing and take the cheapest. You get the same flight on AC.
