LG 3834 on 13 Dec12, MAD-LUX. Aircraft was an E145 jet. Clean and well taken care of. The welcome was
warm and friendly. Service once again beyond what is expected these days. The Flight attendant made sure
that all was well, and never left me waiting to ask for anything, A great snack box with different canapés,
fruits, pate with salad, and a nice pretzel-bread type bun with Spanish ham. Drinks - anything you like, but I
had cold Champagne and still water. The Crew were excellent. Recommended.

Flew LCY to LUX and back in Q400 for a weekend. Both legs on time. Small croissant and tea/coffee/juice on
the morning outbound flight and a ham sandwich and soft drink/beer/wine/tea/coffee on the evening return
flight. Comfortable seats. Overhead compartments a bit small for anything bigger than a laptop case. Overall
a good experience.

LUX-GVA in C. Check-in fine (electronic boarding pass) and lounge excellent. Still driven to the plane by bus, whilst
the new small carrier terminal is closed. However, good service onboard with nice breakfast box, magazines, etc.
Personal touch. No luggage so no comments on that. Return leg that same evening, lounge in GVA a complete
joke, only crackers and beer available, why don't they let us use the Star Alliance lounge? Flight itself uneventful,
again nice cold dinner service + sandwiches from Y offered and all the drinks you wanted.

LUX-CDG return on ERJ 145/135. The seats have seen better days, but that's my only complaint.
Generous legroom, friendly flight attendants and ground staff and tasty croissants/baguettes
served on these shortish 35 min flights give you the feeling of being treated as a real guest
onboard. Flights left and arrived on time.

LUX-GVA 40 minute flight. Nice Embraer jets, and friendly service on board. Seating is 2x2.
Onboard usually offered beef or cheese sandwich, plus a drink - even champagne is offered free
of charge. The only other comment is that there is little competition in Luxembourg airport -
some flights can be very pricey, which is ok if your company is paying, but, if you have to
pay it, many could not afford to go. Luxembourg new airport is very nice, but the parking
charges are pretty high (18 euro for 1 day). Shareholders are making a good return on their

TXL-LUX-SCN return in Economy. The flights were pleasant, the crew was courteous and all four
segments were well ahead of schedule. The food on the TXL-LUX-TXL segments was a choice of
sandwiches (ham or cheee) which was enough for a leg shorter than one hour. The leather seats
were very comfortable. The only downside is that LG uses three different check-in systems at
all three airports which means that no boarding passes for the onward flights can be issued at
either TXL nor SCN. The strangest thing, however, was that the LUXAIR check-in system would
not assign to us seats in the emergency exit row from LUX to SCN. They were blocked for
passengers travellers flying from SCN to MUC. Why they were not open for pax flying from LUX
to SCN no one could tell us.

LUX-LCY-LUX. Outbound leg cancelled because of fog at London City - only flight cancelled that
day. Re-routed to London Gatwick, arrived 2 hours late and had to get trains across London.No
apology. Inbound leg delayed for 30 minutes then waited at baggage reclaim for a further 40
minutes before being told no bags. Spent further 45 minutes in a cue for lost baggage. Again
no apology. Am informed that my bag will be delivered by 1800 today - 20 hours late. No
apology or compensation offered.

BCN-LUX with connection LUX-FRA in Business class. Was somewhat concerned that the first leg was
with a Dash-8-Q400. However the aircraft was clean and well kept. Meal service consisted of
assorted canapes and fresh rolls. Drinks ranged from wonderful Champagne to wines, beers, and non-
alcoholic beverages. The connection to FRA was just as pleasant albeit for a flight of appx 40
minutes on a B737, once again canapes, bread, and a full beverage service offered. This airline is
small but amazing.

As a Luxair call centre employee, I would like to confirm that as from the beginning of this year,
we have worked from Mondays to Sunday, each and every day - Mondays to Saturdays 8am to 9pm whilst
on Sunday from 8am to 5pm. 5 call centre staff are employed each public holiday - handling German,
French and English calls. This is to clarify the wrong info below, thanks.

I am a regular Luxair customer, flying at least 2 times a month. Onboard service in C improved in
last couple of months, and I quite enjoy it. Cabin crew are helpful, so no complaints there. With
new Terminal at Luxembourg airport, their ground service improved, and it now looks more like an
airport, rather than a bus station in the middle of nowhere. Problems? Getting in touch with Luxair
call center (especially outside of business hours) is a nightmare - don't even try on a Sunday
evening or on a bank holiday. Another problem is their frequent flyer programme (or lack of it).
Luxair participates in Miles and More, but you are only awarded "award" miles (no status miles
though). Therefore frequent flyers cannot benefit much from MM status increase. Luxair operates its
own FF programme, but in order to qualify you need to fly at least 50 segments in a calendar year
(interestingly enough - regardless of the class of service - C does not count twice or anything like
that). Overall a nice regional airline, but I would not mind more integration with a big partner in
order toluxprove their ground services and FF offer.

LUX-LCY on Q400 and LHR-LUX on ERJ135. I arrived very late at the airport, but the check-in agents
were helped me to get my flight. I spent no longer than 15 min inside the terminal building from
check-in till boarding! Both flights very comfortable and perfectly on time. Spotless cabin
interiors with spacious leather seating. FAs served snackboxes containing small sandwiches, salad
and sweets, with a selection of newspapers and drinks - even beer and wine for free on these short
one hour flights! I'm very impressed with Luxair as they improved comparing to the last time I flew

LUX-FRA going on to YYZ in J class on Dash Q400. Check-in a breeze in the new Luxairport terminal
which is spotless. Security cleared within minutes and on to the new lounge which is light, modern,
clean and a decent selection of food and beverage options. Finding your way around the gate numbers
a bit of an issue - priority boarding has no meaning as you will be bussed to these smaller
aircraft. Decent choice of newspapers and magazines available. On time departure and nice breakfast
served after take-off. No separation between J and Y class, and seats are exactly the same, if
someone sits next to you it is as tight as in J class. I did not have anyone next to me so nice

Heathrow to Luxembourg on E145 and return to London City on a new Q800. Two crew on each flight. Who
obviously enjoyed their job, despite both flight being full. On each occasion, the flight was
slightly delayed. But the onboard friendliness and the wonderfully tasty snacks they serve, more
than made up for it. They are not cheap though.

FRA-LUX in Y class. Short trip connecting in FRA on our way back from OPO. Nice little new plane.
Great surprise was a snack-pack which we were given before take-off already, which contained an orange
juice, water and two ciabattas which were delicious. Flight uneventful and luggage took 10 minutes to
arrive which is long for LUX's standard's, but I was very pleasantly surprised to see that LG has
apparently decided to go back to the very good service airline they used to be in the 90's!

LUX-CDG on a ERJ and back on new Q400. As always, both flights arrived
perfectly on time. Check-in in a rush, but unfortunately the ground
staff wasn't the friendliest. Seats very comfortable with plenty of
legroom on both types, but the best of all were the tasty snacks they
served during the short flights. A very pleasant experience!

Mixed feelings about Luxair. Onboard service is certainly quite good.
However Luxair is totally overpriced on certain routes due to a
regional monopoly on Findel. On top of that the company seems to suffer
from a public service mentality. On two occasions I flew from Eastern
European destinations to Munich with Lufthansa and then from Munich to
Saarbrücken with Luxair and on both occasions my reservations to
Saarbrücken were cancelled because of "no-shows" on the previous
Saarbrücken-Munich-Moscow route. It took me 45 minutes to get hold of
somebody at Luxair to correct the situation. On Sundays the Call Center
is closed and nobody picks-up the phone at any of the numbers indicated
on Luxairs website. I had to call somebody at the Lost Luggages of
Luxair who told me that the ticketing office of Luxair Airport doesn't
pick up the phone anymore when somebody is calling from outside. What a

Dub-Man-Dub. An airline which truly shows what service should be,
Boarded bang on time, service with a smile, crew efficient, welcoming
drink, hot towel, usual nibbles 2nd drink offered. Crew chatting away to
passengers really showing they do like their job. Flight deck kept us
fully updated. And bags on the baggage belt within 10 mins. What a pity
other airlines have gone down the cost cutting route and in so the
service and standards slip. It was a pleasure to fly with Luxair.

Have travelled Luxair (Dub-Man-Lux) several times to visit my daughter.
I concur with previous comments - excellent and friendly service

Man-Dublin on CRJ-145. Very comfy seats in light grey leather. Best
Embraer interior I have seen. Delightful FA's. Charming, attentive and
goodness me, beautiful girls. Inflight service, who cares it's only 40
minutes. No sign of any hot towels or sweets (mentioned elsewhere).
Lovely though, will definitely select again. Whole environment and feel
is pedigree. Bit more expensive than EI (good) or FR (horrible) but
still good value, plus really quick boarding and deplaning on the

LUX-CDG on a 737-700 and back on an ERJ 145. The FA's were very
friendly, nice breakfast service (although the flight time was just a
bit more than half an hour) and the planes were very clean.

Outstanding company! The kindest crew, they welcome you with these
candies. Planes are nice, clean - I flew twice from LUX- Frankfurt and
from Vienna. Nice sandwiches, everything to drink and that is unlimited.
The Embraer was small, seats 1x2, but they even have catering on short
flights and in that small plane. They are an exclusive company,

Dublin-Manchester. Missed a flight with another airline and was
delighted to get a reasonably-priced one way with Luxair at short
notice. FAs very pleasant, complimentary newspapers, refreshing towel,
choice of complimentary drinks (including champagne), and even Luxair
branded sweets -it's been a long time since I've seen that simple touch
on an airline. Although I have no complaints about Aer Lingus on this
route (good value fares, self service check in, allocated seating - as
opposed to check in queues, non allocated seating and not always low
fares on Ryanair!) I would happily recommend Luxair on this short leg of
their Dublin-Manchester-Luxembourg daily, and having read the Luxair
inflight magazine and enjoyed the service of Luxair, am thinking of
completing the journey for a short break in Luxembourg.

LUX-CDG return (and onwards to YUL on AF) 14/10 - 24/10 in economy. First flight fine in ERJ-145
(which are quite small however and are aging). Got sandwich and drink, flight attendants ok,
newspapers available. Landing at CDG very bumpy but as flight attendants and later on pilot informed
us this was because we got into a jet blast from a starting B747 which had departed just before we
landed. Information much appreciated. Return on B737-500: plane was full, cramped seating, not comfortable at all I must say, got served
breakfast with coffee and juice; fine and uneventful flight. Landing very nice, hardly noticeable.
Luggage on conveyer belt before we got to the terminal (which took 5 minutes). Will fly them again.
Luxair review -by S Jonasen
I was impressed with LUXAIR. My flights were on-time and the FAs were great.
CDG to LUX EMBRAER RJ145. Typical commuter terminal set-up. Take a bus to get there. Boarded from the
tarmac. Reminds me of LAX. Plane has 1x2 seating. Fancy turquoise and black flight attendant
uniforms for such a short flight in a small aircraft. Plane did have a special 2005 EU Presidency
decal outside the cabin hatch. Lovely little brunch service. China and stamped metal flatware. Fruit
cup, rye roll, croissant, cute soufflé thing on a toast, mozzarella, bacon. Got a box of two
chocolates at the end. Unfortunately, my checked bags weren't there. I wasn't the only one to groan
when the baggage carousel stopped without barfing out my bag. The checked bag arrived over 5 hours
after I did. LUX to FRA Boeing 737-500. Nice Luxair VIP lounge. It's got a self serve espresso
machine that grinds the beans, fresh and dried fruit, packaged snacks, cute little sandwiches and
bottled drinks. Plane is interesting. First class seating is almost the same as coach. The armrests
on the center seat angle inward and a console goes on top with places for drinks. It looks they can
sell as many business class seats as they want. A third of the plane looked like it was set up for
business class! Seats are a little low. Seemed harder to get my carry-on under there. Leg room is
okay. It didn't seem like there was much, if any, additional space between seat . They gave out
packaged hand wipes and there were sandwiches on nice, crusty bread for the snack. Impressive
computer animated pre-flight safety video. Has video screen every 4 rows that retract up. Showed
graphic of plane location during the flight.

I often fly Luxair as I am based in Luxembourg. The cabin service is the best I have experienced.
Friendly, real multilingual crew. There is an ample choice of newspapers. Even on short flights from
LUX to CDG, you'll get a nice sandwich and drinks in economy.
Most Luxair flights are in shared codes, so watch out through which airline you book you flight if
you want those frequent flyer miles.
The only complaint I have are these noisy, slow, Fokker 50's but they are being replaced right

Economy from Manchester to Luxembourg. Very nice flight with a freshen up towel given
before take off and during the flight. I was impressed with the service and meal and the flight
attendants were friendly and courteous. This was a very enjoyable flight. Check
in was smooth as I
was early. No delays. Only problem was the return flight was too early in the morning so I was
unable to have breakfast at the hotel. In the end this didn't matter as I had breakfast on the

Luxembourg - London City return. On a route where Luxair has real competition, they are having to
alter price and service to properly compete. This return to London saw passengers served an adequate
sandwich and drink, plus refreshing wipe after take off and sweets before landing. Price was very
good for Luxair and the overall service was friendly but unremarkable. To note that on the way back
all to Luxembourg, all passengers were presented with a bottle of Luxembourg champagne style drink -
a nice touch. This compares with the VLM service which currently dishes out a presentation box of
Luxair review -by Arens Steve
I spend at least the half of my time during a 5 day week at different airports. As Luxair has the monopole in
Luxembourg, alternative flights to Germany (Frankfurt, Berlin or Munich) do not
exist and so the choice is not that enormous. Nevertheless I must say that the business class is
more than just correct for such a little airline (french champagne, little delicious sandwiches
with salad, 4 different wines as choice, a sweet cake with cream, and before the landing some
excellent chocolate from Luxembourg). On the other hand I find the Business Lounge, operated by
Luxair, just great. Compared to the ones in Paris, Munich, Frankfurt or wherever, it has a very
special flair, a familiar atmosphere. (especially the new lounge in the added terminal is modern but
I got not the impression of being exposed. On the contrary the Luxair`s Fokker 50 have a minimum standard of quality. It's not that they are very old but they are
extremely noisy ,small and the interior is in a bad condition, especially the seats. Therefore I
always try to avoid them. The new ERJ-145 are much more comfortable. They have seats covered in
leather, offer good space between the seats and the same speed as a Boeing 737. Sometimes
(in my spare time) I fly with Luxair (charter flights) to various destinations like Las Palmas,
Sharm-El-Sheik, Madeira etc and it's there where I notice a huge lost of quality on flights - the
cold meals are often disgusting and not so easy to define, the sandwiches frozen and they stopped
offering alcohol such as wine or beer. The cabin crew looks like very tired and is not very friendly
and there are still little changes. Result - a very special character of
a national inspired airline gets lost and I feel that this is not the end of significant changes
especially concerning the service (business and economy class!?).
Luxair review -by M Dubois
I take Luxair many times and I'am always pleased to fly them. My last flight was on a brand new
737-700 on a Rome - Nice - Luxembourg flight. Luxair's new 737-700 have one of Europe's best economy
class! The flight was on time, before take off cabin attendants handed over new papers and
refreshing towels as well as headsets for the inflight entertainment system (unique on short intra
European flights!) On the 50 min flight we were served a sandwich selection, on the 1,10 h flight from nice to lux a
light meal was serves but always with a large selection of drinks!
A real 5 star airline.
Luxair review -by Dominique Vitali
How come that every time I call Luxair Information (for landing times or other
first get a message asking me to hold for about 4 to 5 minutes (far too long) and then I get a
ringing tone but nobody picks up!!! I just hung up after waiting or about 10 minutes without an
answer. Looking after your call-desk would enhance the professional image of your company. I must
admit that I'm dreading to call you by now as I never get the information I need anyway.
