Pros: "Nice to have room to spread out. Amazing that a staffer in Greece managed to quickly rebook us on a different flight due to delays and the fear of missing our connection! The best!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. The movie system or user interface was clunky - nice variety of films but hard to find them and choose them."
Pros: "Plane from Munich was late coming to Zagreb, so my flight was late because of that and was about to lose connection flight from Munich to Brussels. Then, Lufthansa drivers waited in Munich, put us in vans and drove us to plane for Brussels. Amazing service!."
Pros: "the crew was good , seat was not so comfortable"
Cons: "seat need to be more soft for a trip during 8h //"
Pros: "The food was fine to abv"
Cons: "The wait time was extremely long and would be even longer when going back to Boston"
Pros: "Our flight from Hamburg to Munich arrived late. Lufthansa met about 10 of us at our arrival gate, took us through a side channel Passport Control and then mini-bused us to our gate. We arrived at the gate 15 minutes after scheduled departure but our plane was there. Very considerate."
Pros: "Leg room"
Pros: "Crew and flight and service were fine"
Cons: "Economy seats are cramped"
Pros: "I'm 86 years old. They took me in a wheel chair past security and allowed me to preboard. The staff is very helful."
Pros: "Movie choices were great! The crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, but that's a problem with every airline."
Pros: "Family check-in in Frankfurt is superb. Economy Plus was a really great experience!"
Cons: "The fact that I can't use my own headphones and I'm forced to use the cheap airline-provided ones (with the dual plugs). Single biggest reason to not fly Lufthansa, because I can't enjoy the movies!"
Pros: "Exit row, very nice to have a little extra legroom. Baggage checked through from LAX to Dresden was sooo convenient."
Cons: "Bus from terminal to aircraft is not optimal."
Cons: "This flight from Athens was delayed which caused us concerned for our connecting flight in Frankfurt to Los Angeles. We told the crew and they were not very empathetic about our concern. It would have been great to have announced overhead or even to us personally all the gates to those of us who were getting connecting flights. We were just told to check the board outside once we landed. Lufthansa could have provided excellent service to my family if they had helped us with our connecting flight gate information to navigate the airport terminal we had never been in before. We literally ran to get our connecting flight which was upstairs once we identified the gate # by ourselves."
Pros: "The staff was courteous,friendly and helpful. The Plane was on time. There was no short supply of liquids. The Crew made every effort to make our flight pleasant as possible. The in seat computer system worked very well, easy to use with good choices for entertainment. The staff apologized for the hot conditions during boarding."
Cons: "The PA system at the gate was not clear. The plane was almost unbearably hot during boarding. Our first snack on an 11 hour flight was stale pretzels and lukewarm orange juice, but this may have been from my choice of products. The food did get better as my expectations were not that high after the first round. The headphones were mono not stereo."
Pros: "Entertainment was very diverse ;great"
Cons: "The food was a bit over cooked and dry but overall excellent service."

Pros: "Crew are very polite and supportive!"
Cons: "Worst food I've ever had inside an airplane. Pretty bad uncomfortable seats as well."
Pros: "The crew was nice and they took good care of us. The flight is really short and there isn't much time for anything."
Cons: "The seats are becoming smaller and smaller, and more uncomfortable."
Pros: "I specifically booked this flight for the 8 hr layover so I could go downtown Munchen. the Plane was 4 hrs late leaving Edinburgh!! what is there to like? nothing."
Cons: "regardless of the late takeoff from Edinburgh, your boarding procedures are like a 3rd world airport. the food was 1/3 of a sandwich. that's food? no entertainment on board of course. why do I pay $500 for such flights? I'll go Ryanair from now on!"
Pros: "Staff, they served a snack on this short flight"

Cons: "I missed flight to Los Angeles because of laziness and carelessness of Lufthansa employees. I came with the train on 12/26/16 at 8:33 am to catch flight to Los Angeles at 10:05 am. I had plenty of time. As soon as got of the train I got into line to check my luggage. I had boarding pass already. Line to check luggage was huge with 2-3 clerks to check luggage for all US flights. After while I complained that I will miss flight to several clerk who were standing around talking on the phones all the time but answer, if I got one was, sir you will be fine. After one hour I got to security check line which was equally long. I complained again no response. With probably 20 minutes left I cut the line on my one mad as hell. I got at 10:00 am at the gate and some older lady was like " Sorry sir we closed the flight". I said "What do you mean, it is 10 am and flight is at 10:05am??? "Sir we sold your ticket" I couldn't believe her words. Anyway they sent me to Munich to catch flight to LA next day. Best part I HAD TO PAY HOTEL IN MUNICH BECAUSE LUFTHANSA DID WANT TO COVER EXPENSES. I don't know what happened to famous German organizational skills or this is just Lufthansa and her careless employees."
Cons: "I had a short transit time in Munich (40 minutes). Munich website promises that this is possible and that gates are close to each other and if the first flight is late, then someone will help you to your next flight. My first flight was about 10 mins late. Although assistance was provided to people connecting to some of the other flights, no-one helped me with my connection. I asked two ground staff and was just told to make my own way to the next gate, which was not close. It was in a different terminal! After literally running through two terminals, I did not make it to the gate in time and had to wait for the following flight which got me home over three hours late. Lufthansa did give me a five euro meal voucher though (which doesn't buy very much in an airport cafe)."
Cons: "There is never enough room in coach. The food was TERRIBLE."
Pros: "It was a relatively short flight. Boarding went well and efficiently. Flight crew was attentive."
Pros: "nice services."
Cons: "no order in boarding and no chairs in Panama airport. Had to stand for 2 hours before boarding."
Pros: "Great flight attendants, very organized, punctual, and the planes were very clean. Amazing company."
Pros: "Great individual attention."
Cons: "Lufthanza is still "rule bound" and somewhat inflexible. Staff had some trouble adjusting to individual request (e.g. one passenger changed her mind on the meal choice and confused the staff member who tried to force the food choice on this older lady). Obviously, dealing with elderly is not the same as dealing with young - this may require some additional training of staff members.On another occasion, two passengers exchanged seats - and it took some time for staff to sort this out at the meal time. A "Muslim meal" was offered to a christian passenger. - The interchange was hilarious."
Pros: "Entertainment options vastly expanded and improved Attentive staff Good check-in Decent boarding - some organisation of boarding by seat - prevents roadblocks by people trying to get to back while those in front are still putting their stuff away and blocking aisle."
Cons: "Given menus for a mediocre meal Booked window seat to sleep - given aisle at last minute when boarding Given drink then meal for overnight flight - meal would be nice - more time to sleep"
Pros: "Efficient, pleasant inflight service! Nice snack/meal. On time!"
Pros: "Excellent service, great airplane, and a high level of professionalism on the part of all Lufthansa crew members. I felt pampered."
Cons: "I was in the next to last row in economy class. The person ahead of me put his seat back as far as it would go. that is his right. Behind me were two friends traveling with me. I doubt if their seats reclined (the last row) so I did not attempt to recline my seat. As a result I was a true "sardine". There was so little space between my face and the seat back ahead of me I could not look at the video screen, which was positioned at an angle when the seat was back. I just closed my eyes and let it pass. Economy plus next time? I have long legs."
Cons: "Rude (American) passengers not keeping the "curtain down", when it was time to rest, and being very chatty. Also baby crying, but this is inevitable, it happened to all of us, when we had small babies."
Pros: "Most of the aspects of flying"
Cons: "There is a fair amount of room for improvement when it comes to Lufthansa airplane food"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew, lovely service, good selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Can't complain about anything"
Pros: "After a cramped flight to Munich getting on this plane was a pleasure - I had space for my legs! And my personal belongings! The flight was smooth and very quick. And the most impressive - the service. Hands down the most delightful crew ever."
Pros: "Entertainment . TV screens in headrest a must."
Cons: "Seats are tight. Knees in the lower lumber. The whole seat moving when someone grabs hold to lift their phat arses out of the seat. My biggest complaint is against my fellow rude passengers, can't blame the airline however they need to improve seats."
