Pros: "Food was great , seats were comfortable and crew was very helpful. Entertainment was more than enough."
Cons: "(1) Was about to miss flight because originally my flight booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but t the time of flight I boarded from a different and new airport in Islamabad which had become operational in Islamabad in the last week of April 2018 . My flight was on 10th May 2018 from Islamabad to Doha to Chicago but neither my online booking site ( Kayak ) not Qatar Airways sent any notification that my Boarding was changed from Banzir International Airport to the newer, bigger airport. Consequently , on the day of flight, I went to check in and board from the Bnazir International Airport but upon reaching the airport I was told that the airport was no more in operation. I was surprised to hear that all flights were to be from the newer airport. By the time I rerouted my taxi to the new airport I was already late for my flight but fortunately the flight from Islamabad to Doha, Qatar was delayed and I made it to the boarding time and flew to Doha , Qatar and then to Chicago."

Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class passengers. Entertainment computer (Android based system) ran slow and out of memory at times. Seats were not comfortable for 12hrs flight. My butt was starting to hurt. I did not have this issues on Emirates flights."
Pros: "Very comfortable wii sleeping compartment"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."

One flight attendant trying to serve both meal and drink to each person took a lot of time. Snacks offerings were almost non-existent. Those of us traveling on three connecting flights with no time to purchase food nor water had a rough time of it. Would not fly Qatar nor connect in Doha again unless absolutely necessary."

Cons: "Not enough food was served for a 16.5 hour flight."

Pros: "On time, good crew, easy connection."
Cons: "Hard and tight seats for such long night flight."
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: ". ."

Pros: "The entertainment choices were great."
Cons: "We sat in front of a row of children who kicked the back of my seat for 13 hrs straight. We spoke to a flight attendant about it early on in the flight, spoke to the kids and spoke to the parents. Then spoke to the kids and parents mid flight. And then spoke to them all, including a flight attendant towards the end of the flight. The issue was never resolved. We asked to change our seats but could not. We asked for the parents to trade seats with the kids and they would not. It was the worst, most uncomfortable flight I have ever taken. And I fly regularly for work and for pleasure. It was an absolutely horrible experience. I was actually in tears on the flight because I was so tired, uncomfortable and frustrated."
Pros: "The service on this flight was not very good. We almost missed our flight whilst waiting for a wheelchair for mother. She had to finally walk to the boarding gate because the wheelchair we had requested did not come."

Pros: "Very professional crew !!"
Cons: "Nothing to write ."
Pros: "service on luthansa was delightful"
Pros: "Everybody was very courteous and tried to accommodate us and our baby!"
Pros: "The service was top notch and the comfort of economy class is better than any American airline I have been on."
Cons: "U cannot think of anything."
Cons: "We were traveling 2 adults with 2 and 6 year olds. We were all seated on different rows and seats. We tried to fix it at the gate and we were given 2 seats next to each other and 2 behind each other...please train your staff to seat families together!!!"
Pros: "Fast boarding. Smooth flight. Good entertainment. Very pleasant."
Cons: "Flight attendant complained about a passanger right in fron of her in a different language. I understand both languages. Completely unprofessional."
Cons: "The staff was very unfriendly and they had inconsistent rules with carry on baggage."
Pros: "The crew were amazing!"
Cons: "I had to pay extra for "out of sequence" booking as I wasn't able to catch the flight out of Manchester to Athens. so i booked a different flight the next day to a different airline. Lufthansa canceled my booking as I didn't take my outbound flight, when they found the booking, they asked me to pay extra. Such a waste of money! Although, the crew on the plane were really good!"
Pros: "The Quietness of the trip. Enough to sleep."
Cons: "There is no possibility for me ti eat. I have a sugerless diet without any aotmeel, rice, corne and other wheat. Just almendraflour is allowed and cooked vegetables and fruit and chicken and fish. I always have huge difficulties in flying intercontinental."
Pros: "Great overall experience oafter some years of absence using other major carriers"
Cons: "All bathroom downstairs, crammed stairs long long waiting , no room to wait for your turn"
Pros: "Interesting the bathroom downstairs...then asking people to not form lines on the stairs makes the process a little more complicated...if a person has mobility problems, which restroom should they use?"
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing. Lack of clear signs and announcements didn't help to form lines. People just went to the gates after families, handicapped, vets, etc..passed the gates, business and first. Improving that process by forming ordered lines would help. Entertainment presented movies that are old and have been dysplayed on flights for years. Entertainment in general is poor. Seating not as expected! I chose my seat online and once on the plane I found out the organization of the seats was different than the one displlayed online. I chose an aisle sea on a 3 seat row and I ended up on a 4 seat row and squeezed in between two other passengers. The seats are "growing" smaller and smaller, and the shape and mobility of the chairs makes them uncomfortable. On my row there were 3 screens installed on the ahead seats, and my screen was by 3/4 in front of the passenger on my right. That made difficult controlling the screen function with me stretching my harm over the other passenger's face. I payed $2,000 for that flight in economy. $2,000 for an economy class is not cheap! And you don't offer a great experience. Either lower the price or improve the overall experience."
Pros: "Very friendly. Overall very pleasant experience."
Cons: "The seats were not as comfortable as other airlines."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was friendly and efficient."
Pros: "Smooth flight. No delay, no unpleasant surprise."

Pros: "The crew was great and loved the pre boarding with my children."
Cons: "That had to be the most uncomfortable flight to France I have been in. There was no leg room at all."
Pros: "The check in process was fast and pleasant. Boarding was fast and organized. Food and drinks were good."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable for such a long flight. Simply terrible."
Pros: "Loved the little sandwiches!"
Cons: "The check-in process in Paris was frustrating and slow. The boarding process was also a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Food wine and professional courteous staff. So much nicer than American airlines"
Pros: "Friendliness of crew, punctuality of flight; complimentary plum cake; good selection of drinks. We were able to check in and choose seats online."
Cons: "Flight took off from Zurich on time. Circled Munich for 45 minutes then went to Lintz (??), tiny little airport in Austria. LH said it was due to icy conditions, however, looking at the airport website, no evidence of any other flights being delayed. Was this plane even suitable for the flight? Then put on a bus and driven to Munich - 5 hours! On my way to LA, so then put on a flight to Mexico City leaving at 11pm, to connect with flight that would finally arrive into LAX at 2pm. So, over 24 hours from Zurich airport to LAX. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Some members of the crew were very nice and attended well to our need."
Cons: "Boarding process was terrible. One flight attendant was clumsy when pouring hot tea and hot drops landed on my wife hands."
Pros: "On time and clean"
Cons: "Small amount leg room"
Pros: "Lufthansa did the rebooking."
Cons: "I'm still waiting to fly out to Chicago, but now via Frankfort. I've lost a day from work and I'll have to pay an additional parking day at the O-Hare airport since I hadn't picked up my car at the predicted time. I'm not sure at this moment whether I'll have to pay some penalties for this. I'm really worried. Really."
Pros: "overall very good for a short haul flight gate area in Frankfurt - complimentary newspapers & coffee"
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The check-in lady was extremely rude to me and my father, then half the customers were left behind because the wrong gate was put on the board at the airport. Since no one was in my row the flight was very comfortable, but then they forgot to give my my vegetarian dinner and then forgot to give me breakfast and several drinks. They were not apologetic at all and were very rude to me when I asked for my breakfast and drink. Traveling is already stressful. No need to make it worse."
Pros: "Great in every way except at the end when there was no wheelchair."
Cons: "Upon arrival at Munich, I and a clearly handicapped gentleman were led on foot to an elevator and then to a golf cart. There should have been a wheelchair, at least for him. But it got worse...see my next flight."
Pros: "Do you know what it is like for a vegetarian gluten free person to order gluten free vegetarian and not get it? We confirmed by phone in advance and yet no such meal was provided. If Lufthansa does have such a meal they should say it at the time if reservations. Obviously someone didn't care enough."
Cons: "Do you know what it is like for a vegetarian gluten free person to order gluten free vegetarian and not get it? We confirmed by phone in advance and yet no such meal was provided. If Lufthansa does have such a meal they should say it at the time if reservations. Obviously someone didn't care enough."
Cons: "Despite we had reserved it seems that baby bassinet had not been recorded! Luckily we could move to a row where there was nobody but still it was a big hassle"
Pros: "The entertainment provided was very good. WE had our choice of first run movies along with many old time favorites."
Cons: "Not much room! I was in a center seat and was crowded in on both sides. As I was seated, my elbows were were about 12 inches apart in front of my chest. At the person relaxed in front of me, the screen I was watching was right in my face..."
Pros: "Free meal on short trip Efficient Quick Nice staff"
Pros: "plain was almost full and were no space for hand lagguage so we have to put it under seat in ftonr of us, but since there is less space in the end we put our legs on our begs...totaly unconfortable !!!"
Cons: "lower your prices, we do not to pay for your losses because of so much strike in 2015th year...for 200 euro we have to pay luggage 30 euro?! WTF?! i will next time rather fly with lowcast beacuse there is no difference except in price."
Pros: "crew and comfort"
Cons: "food not multi choices"
Cons: "Food was disgusting and cold. Charging for lugagge. Flights where 2h delayed. Had to run on LH transit vans as the plane was almost leaving"
Cons: "birding a lttle faster would be good"
Cons: "We were sitting next to a bathroom on night flight"
Pros: "Entertainment in economy"
Cons: "My flight got diverted to a location of Lufthansa's preference rather than the closest one."
Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "The first leg was delayed because of snow and I missed the connecting flight."
Pros: "Great aircraft and much better entertainment than Lufthansa has had in the past."
Pros: "Overall flying experience was good"
Cons: "It was a morning flight but check in counters were very less and as s result there was long queue. For a morning flight when the passengers get up almost at wee hours to report to airport , the check in should be faster so that they get some time before boarding for a cup of tea or coffee."
Pros: "nothing. Niente!"
Cons: "They don't fly at all! Non mi piace, quando pianifico il viaggio e poi loro non partono! Vergogna!!!!!"
Cons: "Lufthansa struck when I tried to fly from Kansas City to Napoli Italy on September 08, 2015. I was delayed four days. It took me 5 hours to rebook my flight. Then when returning to Kansas City on November 12, 2015, they had another strike. This time I was forced to purchase 3 days of motels and expenses. It took me 6 hours of making phone calls to rebook my flight. I kid $100 extra to choose my seats since I have PTSD from 24 months straight in Iraq. I panic when I feel confined. So I choose my seats carefully. And now on both trips, Lufthansa chose my seats for me. Just pisses me off all the way around."
Pros: "Food, wine, service, on-board entertainment"
Cons: "Not enough legroom. Had to pay extra to choose seat with companion."
Pros: "The magazine provided on board were unexpectly interesting! Even though it was a short flight sandwich and drink were provided and were delicious!"
Cons: "it was a small plane so there weren't too much comfort or place to put our luggages but these are minor problems."
Pros: "Over the top service...best I've ever experienced."
Pros: "The blanket. little miss sunshine movie"
Cons: "there weren't that many movies/tv shows. all your "comedy" movies shouldn't be the hangovers."
Cons: "Boarding would be better if they started boarding the back of the plane and then move forward"
