Pros: "Business class upgrade"
Cons: "Sitting in window next time"
Cons: "No WiFi despite paying. No Kosher food despite ordering."
Pros: "Everything was fine!"
Cons: "Everything was fine!"
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is too big. Allowing only an hour for a connecting flight is not enough time. I would never do that again especially if your with a handicapped person"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "Standard good Lufthansa service"
Cons: "Munich airport is very difficult to reach. I avoid it whenever possible."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "I checked bags asking “is the baggage delivery fast at Frankfurt”. “Much taste than Edinburgh” was the reply (Edinburgh is reeeeaaaaallllly slow). Sadly Frankfurt too is slow."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "The crew were super friendly. There was plenty of space and I slept for a few hours"
Pros: "Good leg room in aircraft and comfortable seating."
Cons: "My checkedin baggage did not reach the final destination and was delayed by 24 hours. Further, when my baggage did reach, one suitcase was damaged. Did not expect this from Luftansa."
Pros: "Lufthansa service from JFK-FRA-FCO-FRA-JFK was gracious, efficient and altogether pleasurable."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled by the airlines due to mechanical failure. Told us to go home and wait for email on what to do. No compensation"
Cons: "Upon arriving to Frankfurt airport (gate Z) from Boston, i had an hour to make it to gate A including passport control. Once I got to to gates A50-69 I was told that i had to turn back and go through a different passport control as the one close to gates A50-69 was too busy/full. So I turned back although i had no specific gate number where the passport control was. Once I got there, after 10 mins walking (around gate Z20) around and asking lufthansa staff I came across a rather long queue. At that point I only had 30 mins until my flight to Budapest was boarding. I knew I would not get through that queue on time and there was no assistance. So I decided to turn nack and go back to gates A50-69 assport cobtrol where luckily there was no queue at all. I do not understand why i was turned away by staff the very first time I got to that passport control and why there was no assistance by airport staff. Not happy at all about that."
Cons: "We were put on standby. We expected our names to be called for seat assignments but we didn’t expect we could just swipe our boarding pass and our seat assignment would show. It’s a nice feature but I didn’t like that it wasn’t clearly explained to us."
Pros: "There were many movie choices."
Cons: "The plane was a bit warm."
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "They lost 2 of my checked in bags and damaged 2 others."
Pros: "The staff on board the plane was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the flight! Food was delishious!"
Cons: "The ticket kiosk would not read passports. It was so frustrating to have to continuously try over and over again. With no attendant at the location and a long line, I wasn’t sure how to proceed. There were plenty of people having the same difficulty. It took about 12 minutes to occomplish a minut long job."
Pros: "Overall once on the flight the service and comfort were very good. Attendants were very nice and helpful. Always had a smile and made the flight enjoyable. We specifically picked this Airline for its service and reliablity"
Cons: "The checkin and "Automated" Baggage Check were a disaster. It took us a full 2 hours to check our bags and get to thru security and our gate. We were practically running to get to the end. The layout of the airport is very tough to get from point A to point B. Walking a long distance with multiple security checks. On top of that, the plane was almost an hour late boarding and then taking off. It was a mass of people with no way to cue for an orderly boarding process. No instructions or info given to allow us to go get something to eat or drink prior to boarding."
Cons: "Miss the flight due to too short of transfer time. As a professional you guys should know better to have such tight transfer time. I want credit for my major inconvenience"
Cons: "Because the one came in from London Got Delay And I miss my flight"
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "Had ridiculously long bus ride from terminal to plane. Plane was parked on the outer reaches of the airport. This happens far too often on Lufthansa when connecting in Franfort. Build more gates!!"
Cons: "Business clsss sweats on A321 were coach seats with the center seat left empty. Not sir it is worth the higher fare."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food and drinks were far in between. We were on Delta for an international flight and they almost didn’t stop offering stuff to us. I had a another man with broad shoulders like me next to me and had to spend the next 9 hours leaning to the other side to fit. Asked for help to find a different seat even if I had to pay for an upgrade and was told I couldn’t do that after the flight had started"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive. It's clear they hire for people with high EQs."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Media box under the seat in front of me so no room to put my carry on under the seat. Also, breakfast was skimpy. Some fruit and a muffin."
Pros: "Everything as expected."
Pros: "No thing at all"
Cons: "1- the aircraft from cairo to munich was so small that they didn’t allow the carry on baggage and I had to put it with the check in baggage. 2- the special meal ( muslim meal ) that I ordered was a veggie meal !!!!! With no meat or chicken at all , apparently they don’t know what the meaning of a muslim meal is ! It means to have halal meat , we are not vegetarians ! 3- my baggage didn’t arrive to the airport and I filed a report and was told that I will have them tomorrow and now after four days the baggage didn’t arrive yet and I was told that one of them is missing !!!!!!! I can’t hate them enough."
Cons: "No problems average flight slight delays."
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "Flight was not on time. They did not even make arrangements for connecting flights after knowing we would be late. Airhostness looked like they did not care about anyone in general got a negative vibe from her."
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth flight, always offering water."
Cons: "I was hungry in this flight. I felt the choice of food was small and have never been on a 10 hr+ flight and felt hungry. I'm glad I brought my own snacks with me."
Cons: "It was awful. The staff was more concerned with flirting with guests than everyone else. The seats were absolutely terrible. Getting off the flight the flight attendant had her back turned to everyone but made sure that the guests in first class were greeted as they discarded the air craft. As soon as she left everyone else from economy off the plane she didn’t even say have a good day, rather she had a nasty look on her face. This will be the last time I fly Lufthansa."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding. Back of the plane seats should be boarding first, after babies and old people. I was stopped by the people in front of the plane putting away their luggage and standing in the aisle. Not enough room between the rows. Passenger in front of me most picture straight into my face"
Pros: "They made the experience enjoyable easy and I made me feel special"
Pros: "The crew/ service was great & clean bathrooms on the flight"
Cons: "Terrible food quality. Zero leg space. The Newark terminal is ancient & fire alarm went off for over 20min before boarding."
Pros: "The Lufthansa flight and crew were fantastic. Nice plane with amenities. It was far better than our return flight on Air Canada."
Cons: "My return on Air Canada."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "The 747 is a big plane. Each seat had a full entertainment system in the back of the seat ahead. Seats actually reclined! Cannot recommend cabin crew highly enough. Efficient, polite, professional."
Cons: "I cannot understand why any airline continues to board forward to aft, forcing people with just a backpack to stack up behind others, allowed to bring obscenely over-sized carry-on bags, wrestling to get their sea chests into the overhead bins. Seat upholstery could have been better for such a long flight. I have "asnahtfuL" permanently embossed on my butt. 747 is an aging craft and this plane had disappointing response to turbulence."
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Pros: "I love lufthansa"
Cons: "We waited 1 hour inside the plane for a tore change. That should have been done before take off time."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "bad business class experience, requested assistance 2 but only one came that alsoafter so much hassel will never travel or recommend"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Delays in Nice led to a narrow window for connection. More than ten people were left behind - doors practically closed in our faces - and Lufthansa was wholly unhelpful in rescheduling flights. Lines to speak with agents were absurd and then attendants had to take breaks instead of resolve issues. There were no solutions offered, only poor communication and an unwillingness to accommodate a significant number of customers who were inconvenienced. Finally, a "random inspection" led to a handful of passengers being surveyed by the German local police. Interestingly, a number of us were Hispanic Americans. The whole experience was extremely negative."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Food was tasteless"
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "Twenty minutes early on arrival"
Cons: "Not necessarily a problem for others but very back of plane left no room to recline."

Pros: "Once we took off the flight was quick and smooth"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from 11:55 am take off to a 1:30 pm take off."
Cons: "Unexplained 3 hour delay. They couldn't be bothered to automatically rebook me to an earlier flight (other airlines do this). They also couldn't put me on standby over the phone?! I had to wait for someone to arrive at the gate and then get on standby."
Pros: "The idea of having inflight entertainment."
Cons: "1. Crew moved my luggage without asking, 2. Sat in window seat and it was easily 85 degrees, 3. Seat is not made for someone 6’2”. Neck support falls at shoulders which was super uncomfortable, 4. Inflight entertainment worked for a bit then didn’t."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. There was enough room for carry on in the overhead compartments and the in flight entertainment system was great with an easy access usb charging port."
Cons: "Seats we’re small, no room to place anything in the pocket in front of me and the chairs were so small that all the people next to me had no room to move. None of them were extremely big people, but they didn’t have room for their hands and feet, so they were all in my space. The isle was too narrow"
Cons: "The boarding process at the gate was brutal and very disorganized and the persons working for American Airlines were overwhelmed and announcements relating to the delay were very confusing"
Pros: "Nothing. I’ll never fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Literally everything. I spent 30 hours sitting in the Philadelphia airport and then had to buy a flight with SouthWest so that I could get home. Too bad my luggage is headed for Toledo."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Plane was too warm during flight. Aisle is narrow, seats are semi-hard. Lav needed attention (ran out of towels)."
Pros: "All the service was good"
Cons: "I am handicapped and there was no attendance at the gate once I arrive in Honolulu, no wheelchair assist to help me to the baggage terminal."
Pros: "The crew was great, efficient and professional."
Cons: "My tv was broken and only played maximum volume."
Cons: "Flight left the gate late, then sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes causing me to miss my connection to Austin. Couldn't get another flight that night to Austin so flew to Dallas, got in at midnight, had a to get a room which was not reimbursed. So sick of American Airlines and will not use them aga"
Pros: "Good legroom on economy"
Cons: "Rude and disrespectful"
Pros: "The free entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Delayed for almost an hour because of maintenance issues. Then had to wait over an hour to get our bags at the carousel. Mind you this is after arriving at midnight. Didn't leave the airport till after 1am!"
Pros: "LOVED the spacious leg room on that aircraft!"
Cons: "The lady beside me and everyone else listened to her audio book."
Pros: "Nice crew Spacious plane"
Pros: "Customer Service, movies & comfortable seats"
Cons: "Crew was incredibly unfriendly."
Pros: "Kayak is taking people’s money by selling airlines tickets of airlines that doesn’t exist. I bought tickets for some airlines called Finnair and end up in the worse airline there is “American Airline” this is Not fare for clients, I refuse to flight Americans Airline, if I would have known I would have not buy this flight. 7 hours in a plane with no TV, no free drinks and the worse service. This is a trick, by using Finnair and then end up in AA! There is no Finnair, this is a lie! I am so disappointed about Kayak and won’t use it again. Thank you for rob me and trick me into the worse experience!"
Cons: "The trick the kayak used to put me in American Airlines, the worse Airline there is."
Pros: "Dreamliner plane"
Cons: "Terrible service from get go which continued when landing in Melbourne with hopeless Qantas."
Cons: "The staff member at the gate counter in Philly was very short and rude. She asked for people volunteer to check their carry-on bags and when I took mine up she was very curt. She asked me for my seat number (I didn't hear her) and her tone got worse. A woman who did not speak English need assistance and was turned away by this person with s shrug. The Latina finally stood in the middle of the gate area asking for help from anyone who could speak English. I just spent 18 days I Madrid and never once was rejected when I asked for assistance. I was not happy with your employee and I was ashamed to hear an American treat someone that way. In the employee's defense, she was alone at the dest up until boarding time and was juggling a lot of balls without any other support. Not a good experience."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "24 hr trip. Morning business meeting- How did my bag not make my flight? I would have carried it on, if I didn’t trust AA to provide excellent service. This is now impacting my business."
Pros: "New equipment. Film choices, crew, complementary beverages"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and nice."
Cons: "Plane and seats were a little outdated."
Pros: "Flight on time ."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Terrible airline. Will not fly them again."
Pros: "Great flight, on time, seat upgrade"
Cons: "we had to wait for the 4th flight attendant for almost 3h in la. The Crew at the gate wasn't even able to make proper announcements. The plane didn't provide charging stations for your devices, I would expect for a flight like this that you either have screens on each seat or you're be able to charge your devices"
Pros: "loved the movie selection and how nice the crew was"
Cons: "The fact that my party was seated in different areas of the plane."
Pros: "On time and no lost bags"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bin"
Pros: "The crew was one of the best flight crews I have ever met! We had many of the same attendants on the flight back to MIA, as well. Give them raises!"
Pros: "The crew was always very warming and assisting. Everything was a breeze."
Pros: "Flight was smooth, left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "No TVs in the seats to entertain the kids."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the ground staff made no effort to update its passengers as the mood to grow angry, however instead two of the counter people continued to laugh joke and talk between themselves as everyone grew more and more restless by 6:30pm"
Cons: "Bad as above"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Full meal"
Pros: "The flight was good , the crew was excellent ."
Cons: "The food SUCKs!! You should be able to take alittle nap without u waking up feeling like a pretzel . Should be more space between seats to stretch you legs"
Pros: "The single flight attendant was very friendly and down to earth, and was keen to share her experience with us."
Cons: "De Havilland Dash-8's can be a bit noisy, and they seem to be the only planes they fly into Hilton Head. However, that isn't to say you're unable to get sleep on them, because my partner and I both slept the entire flight- the vibrations are only slightly disconcerting. Departure was about 15 minutes late out of Charlotte."
Cons: "We turned around mid flight and had to come back to Houston :( we stayed at a holiday inn and didn’t get another flight out for 24 hours."
Cons: "Delay that caused us missing the connecting flight."

Pros: "Crew awesome. Plane nice and clean Process was fast efficient"
Cons: "SEATS TO SMALL. Food can improve."
Cons: "Direct tv sucks! Had to watch trailer 3 times before movie started. If switched to another movie it started part way. Flight attendants instead of one long announcement made three announcements few seconds between thus cutting in and out of movie."
Pros: "Amazing crew and good seats."
Cons: "In my experience everything was great."
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "Great crews"
Cons: "Not sure"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating, especially a flight attendant named Petra."
Cons: "We waited a long time to board. It would have been helpful if someone explained why we waiting so long."
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "On time departure & arrival"
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew. Sufficient food, quite tasty."
Cons: "Extra charge for spirits. Only beer or wine complimentary. Poor headphones and image quality so overall entertainment mediocre."
Pros: "Fantastic service and very poloce staff."
Pros: "On time. Flight attendant was exceptional."
Pros: "Everything went like clockwork"
Pros: "I appreciated that the airline put us up in a hotel, gave us vouchers for food and bumped us to first class, however not all of us even got on this plane. My wife is on standby while my daughter and her friend go with me at 6:20 AM, my work de is scheduled for 7:45 flight. We’ll see but I’m not holding my breath."
Cons: "See above..."
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Cons: "I couldn't make my trip because of work. Therefore had to cancel but Lufthansa would not provide refund so I had a wasted ticket. Not happy"
Cons: "There was no entertainment available on this flight. It's a short flight so I don't expect any, however, I continued on to Phoenix that day from Chicago and that is a long flight. I expected free entertainment on that flight, as it was afforded on the flight on the Phoenix to Chicago leg of my flights earlier in the week. The Chicago to Phoenix had entertainment offered but it there was a fee, which I didn't appreciate and did not take part in. I looked around me as much as possible and didn't see anyone else pay for entertainment. Having in flight movies and TV available for feee is a great incentive for flying with United. If these long flights in the future are pay for view, I will not be flying with you when there are alternative carriers who do provide free entertainment. Thank you."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times no compensation was offered."
Cons: "Thank you for the great flight!"
Pros: "The flight was excellent"
Cons: "I don't have a problem with a flight being delayed for any reason. That is simply one of the hazards of flying. However, the PIT->ORD flight was delayed multiple times for unknown reasons. If the airline would have given a realistic timetable, customers could have managed their time much easier. Instead, United Airlines kept delaying takeoff for 15-20 minutes, multiple times. When they finally get the customers into the boarding process, they act like they're doing you a favor. Poorly managed, customers manipulated."
Cons: "Never made it to destination"
Cons: "The seats and headrests in particular were most uncomfortable for a 4+ hour flight. I was most uncomfortable on the flight and ended up with a pain in the neck!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats for economy"
Cons: "Computers were down in Akron Ohio. Flight was delayed an hour. Chicago was delayed 2 hours. There was an earlier flight i should have been booked on."
Pros: "This was an average flight on a small, cramped, RJ/CRJ. There was nothing special about this flight and this review is only to stop the over abundance of emails Kayak sends you begging for a review...."
Cons: "Please read what I wrote above."
Cons: "i will not arrive at my destination until 4:03 AM. yuck."
Cons: "Often denied service for BYOD entertainment. Could see others struggling too. Even after paying $17 for email and very limited web browsing, got very spotty and generally poor service."
Pros: "I love THe. cak airport. ANd I am flying United again tomorrow"
Cons: "My carry on. Didn't fit. Had to check it after I boarded. Front desk said it was good. I bought it For THaT purpose.. The retailer advertises it as tsa approved carry oOn?"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "No leg room."
Pros: "The leg room and the great service"
Pros: "United Airlines abuse of the man on Sunday is shameful and I will never fly United again!"
Cons: "I don't like how they beat and dragged that poor doctor from that flight. #fireoscarmunoz #boycottunitedairlines"
Cons: "Delay for 4 hours"
Pros: "Smooth flight good communication from the cockpit flight crew was good"
Pros: "Thanks to your professional flight crew and ground crew."
Cons: "All of us passengers sat in the plane for 2 hours while 17 ppl were removed and then seats resat. This massive overbooking on the part of the airlines, caused me to miss my connecting flight and my connecting train, and miss a whole day of my costly vacation. On top of this, we had to pay for changes to the connecting train (a cost we weren't expecting to incur.) This flight in the end has turned out to be one of the most costly and uncomfortable flying experiences that I've ever had. I am hoping that either Kayak, Lufthansa or the operating airlines, United, will step up and make recompense for this monetary loss. Thank you, Sarah Minnich firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "Crew were fine."
Cons: "Twelve hours of horrible delays, missed connections, and running through airports due to poor aircraft maintenance and mechanical problems. Will never fly United again if I have a choice."
Cons: "Delayed by an hour and a half"
Pros: "The struf waffles"
Cons: "Every thing went well"
Pros: "Seats and plane interior were updated and surprisingly comfortable. Update made plane feel new, clean, and made more ergonomic sense. Crew was good and helpful."
Cons: "Confusing entertainment system that seemed to require a credit card even for free content. Boarding process overly confusing; used boarding group method usually used for general seating flights even though we had assigned seats. They could have filled up the back of the plane first boarding by row numbers, for example. Boarding group signs caused confusion for everyone; they were angled to the right, but had small arrows pointing to the left where we were supposed to line up, all passengers were asking other passengers for help as to where they were supposed to be. Very long boarding wait added to confusion."
Cons: "On a redeye, comfort is imperative. The seats only reclined 10 degrees, if that, and the seat pockets were a thin mesh strip 10" across, rendering them completely useless."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic ! My daughter was anxious during some unexpected turbulence and she was very supportive . Movies and entertainment were good . Food , acceptable."
Cons: "The space allotted per person is ridiculous. And I upgraded to extra leg room ... What extra legroom ??"
Pros: "It was a old plane , entertainment was horrible . There was no choice of movies and other channels . For a flight this long they should have thought about this"
Pros: "From Akron to Cleveland it was a great trip"
Pros: "Courteous staff."
Cons: "Feet were so cold on the entire flight."
Cons: "My connecting flight was cancelled and had to be taken to another airport for a connecting flight and was told that it was overbooked Very stressful situation to wait to find out if we had a seat available on that flight if not wait till the next one. Terrible"
Pros: "Check-staff was very gracious."
Cons: "We boarded late because of maintenance check. After we boarded, we were told still doing maintence check."
Pros: "The staff was so nice and helpful with everything I needed!"
Cons: "As a first time flyer, I had nothing to complain about."
