Seats recline into your face, knees bump seat in front of you and some kind of equipment box took the space In front of me for my leg. I had to use the leg room of the passenger next to me to put my foot down."

Cons: "I was sitting at the tale end. Seat was extremely uncomfortable. I was trying to rest yet flight attendants and several passengers were talking loud. Crews kept forgetting passengers orders/requests. A lady sitting besides me pushed a call bottom 3 times to get noticed. Flight attendants were too busy chatting with passengers to help other passengers. I have never seen that type of services before."
Pros: "Waiting area needs upgrade...40 minute flight, no time for food or entertainment..."
Pros: "clean plane almost on time departure"

Pros: "Nothing. It was awful. Worst flight in years."
Cons: "Airport,business lounge, boarding process-they didn't know what was going on, business class seats we're nobody size seats, awful food-was supposed to be a hot breakfast but it was dinner instead, no entertainment, no tv screens, said they had wifi but they didn't. Nothing good about the flight. Crew was more concerned about keeping their curtain pulled than anything else."
Pros: "This plane was an airbus, while the plane I took to Europe was a boeing something. Economy was much more comfortable and there were great entertainment options. I also like the frequent brandy, Bailey's, and water service. The flight attendants were nice and at least appeared to care about the level of service they were providing."
Cons: "This probably is just personal preference, but I didn't like the meal options all that much. But that's about it. Mind you, I eat German food often in the States, so the type of cuisine wasn't the problem."
Pros: "I have ordered the salmon fish dinne and the fish was totally overlooked, dry and tough. I could not swallow the fish and ate the tiny bread roll only. The second was breakfast wigh tasteless scrambled egg and mushroom and spinach. Both serving sizes were really small with just one side dish of fruits. I was hungry the whole 10 hours flight."
Cons: "Changed the chef or the vendors who supplied the meals."
Pros: "Great service !!!!"
Pros: "I liked it overall"
Cons: "I absolutely hated and was very surprised at the completely illogical step of making people who have connection flights wait. Lufthansa was the one that scheduled two of my flights so close together, not letting people with connection flights to un-board first is completely counterproductive. Most other airlines let people with connecting flights unboard first."
Pros: "Lufthansa was great . It was just that the weather did not cooperate in Boston."
Pros: "Short flight Ease of checking in Meal provided"
Cons: "Time of flight changed by two hours earlier w/o being notified No entertainment Flight delayed due to passenger"
Pros: "I loved everything."
Pros: "crews are very professional. speak multiple languages. except for the quality of food, the airline provide good service."
Cons: "available seats shown on lufthansa website does not always tell the truth. to the last minute it was shown the airplane empty which was my next seat available but it was booked. if i have known that, i could have booked a upgraded seat."
Pros: "Very helpful crews. Any problems."
Pros: "Superb service thru Lufthansa"
Cons: "Long wait, but it was cheap so it ofset it"
Pros: "Great food options, blanket and pillow, and free movies was the best"
Pros: "everything was easy to use and set up from booking to landing. wonderful trip. This was my 1st big trip and 2nd time on a plane. Liked the movies on the plane. All the staff where helpful from gate to gate."
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Entertainment. Sound so bad I had to use subtitles! Boarding complete chaos. No line, everyone wanted to be first."
Pros: "The Fight Attendants were very nice and tried to be soo helpful!"
Cons: "My daughter and I signed up for a vegetarian meal and it was beyone awful, completely inedible. No protein at all. The first meal was cornmeal mush, and the second was 3 pieces of stale bread with a few sliced cucumbers and strips of red bell pepper between some type of fake butter. Really? Lufthansa, you need to check out Delta's vegetarian meals, they are fantastic! Also, the sound didn't work on the TV, so for a NINE HOUR FLIGHT I could not watch any movies! This would be okay, if I had known ahead of time and prepared with something to do!"
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "I paid for a specific seat next to my friend but we did not get seats together. There was a change in aircraft."
