Tiny seats, very cramped for 11 hour flight, the food was terrible - only pasta option, full of grease, cheese and carbs, it tastes awful. No other choice. Tiny cups for water/drinks for over 11 hours of flying. Toilets felt dirty.
Rude flight attendants, horrible customer service, had to show the same documents 3 times after being check and cleared once. Flight attendants acted like they couldn’t hear what we are asking even though we spoke all the languages they did. It was not a pleasant flight and as a cherry on top all of our suitcases got lost.
Like: The flight attendants Do better: be on time. You informed us of a 25 minute delay…..that turned into over an our….probable cause - under staffed baggage handling to load the plane. In Newark we waited in excess of 30 minutes to see our luggage so we could transfer to our next domestic connection. Result - missed connection. Probable cause - under staffed or poorly functioning baggage handling.
Pros: "The crew did a good job dealing with so many customers and in one instance was able to resolve a minor conflict with seat way backs."
Cons: "The seats should be fixed to prevent them from going back as far as they do. With space so small as it is, it is unnecessary to have them go back so far if at all. The food was poor, especially the cold egg and pepper sandwich at the end. My guess is that they were suppose to be heated which would have made them much better but the crew decided to give them out cold."
Pros: "Very confusing going through security."
Cons: "Not being delayed at takeoff. We didn’t have enough time, as it was, to catch our flight to Boston and had to run to catch our flight. The scanners at passport control were also a problem."
Pros: "Didn’t like anything. Mediocre all round."
Cons: "Disembarkation took 40 mins due to which most passengers struggled to catch connecting flights. Very poor service by Lufthansa to help delayed passengers."
Pros: "The plane looked new and clean. The TVs worked well (as opposed to our first flight) and kept our family entertained. The kids meal was prepared in an appealing way for my kids (even though the kids didn't like it some of it - but they tried everything!)."
Cons: "We had a great experience. No issues."
Pros: "My meal request was better than during my Frankfurt to Abuja journey. I did not know the content of the food then."
Pros: "Seat was OK"
Pros: "This was my first experience flying with Lufthansa airlines and the experience was outstanding from start to finish! This is what flying should be like! Other airlines should do what they do!"
Pros: "Business class for great price but I’m tall and not much extra legroom"
Pros: "Great service. Comfortable business class seats."
Pros: "Monitor in front of me did not work during the whole flight."
Cons: "Monitor in front of me did not work during the whole flight. The seat was really crammed in and not enough leg room."
Cons: "First flight was canceled and we had a pleasure (after 12 hours flight from SJC to FRA) to spend another 11 hours in the airport."
Cons: "You have to pay for food unless it is pretzels."
Cons: "Seat in front was broken (did not hold in place reclining) and my seat was broken too. I was able to change seat but 2 seats broken in consecutive rows is not good as it makes you think what else may be broken and what kind of accidents could occur if seats are not even checked by crew."
Cons: "I hated that the plane did not wait for me as I have been on plenty of airlines that have waited 5-10 mins to allow for these sort of things to be rectified. thankfully, Lufthansa and United booked me on a plane that left 5 hours later. they even bought me a 10 euro lunch. :), a pass to the , Luftanhsa lounge would have also been a good showing. I asked about this , but was gently denied. the help desk was gracious, which I appreciated. I had an entire row to myself on the United flight to DC, which softened the blow as well but the flight to Munich from IAD was great (2-28-18)"
Pros: "Impecable service. Even worth flying through FRA."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything, as always, great. Keep it up."
Pros: "new clean aircraft."
Cons: "no breakfast."
Pros: "Was great,on time,no issues,they send me the flight connection gate on my email.*****"
Pros: "Great price, great airlines, easy flight....I few LAX to Geneva."
Pros: "Everything was great!!!"
Cons: "The crew attitude!!! Instead of saying "excuse me" she said "can I pass" she was rude"
Pros: "Services, Food, Crew"
Cons: "IFE doesn't had much options."
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "Many things. Starting from the online/mobile check in process via United airlines. I was not given any other option but to check in through the United website. On that website I was not allowed to check in for my Lufthansa flights and i was stuck with seats I did not want in my 2 long intercontinental flights. This has happened before. Lufthansa has no option to check in online if my first flight leg is united. This is a very big drawback and also the reason I would not prefer to fly Lufthansa again. United is bringing the quality down."
Pros: "I have the option to have a special meal. (vegan)"
Cons: "I have to ask for my special meal in advance."
Pros: "Clean, new plane."
Cons: "Baggage got lost on a direct flight. A lot to improve here."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and everything went smoothly. I was able to change my seat."
Cons: "Horrible in flight food. Even in the business class it was mediocre at best. The in-flight entertainment system did not have a responsive interface. The content was dated."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, respknisbe and professional, while the food was tasty. We were on time and kept well informed along the way. The movie selection was good and the touch screens were some of the best in terms of image quality and responsiveness I've seen aboard a plane."
Cons: "Space and comfort. Lufthansa is joining too many airlines in figuring out the exact minimal space a human needs to be able to be seems hurtling through the air. This leads to cramped, tight spaces with little to no freedom to shift your body. Because of this limited space, seats can only recline so far and leave one uncomfortable, though that angle is enough to create even less space for the person behind you or for you, when faced with a reclining front neighbor. So, minimal benefit of minimal recline and maximum discomfort caused for that minimal gain."
Cons: "The person at the Swiss/Lufthansa front desk, some Mohamed guy, was very rude when he did my check in"
Pros: "Service, Efficiency. Quality of the food compared to Quality of the food other Airlines. Extra room provided by premium economy."
Pros: "Very nice staff, lovely meal with wine and beer included. Overall experience very nice!"
Cons: "We were late about 30 minutes at boarding. Late to connecting flight but didn't miss it!"
Pros: "The professionalism and warmth of the staff, the food, the wet towels before a meal. We appreciated the constant supply of beverages to keep us hydrated."
Cons: "The disjointed announcements which kept disrupting the movie we were watching. It would be helpful to have one single announcement instead of breaking it up into several smaller units. We had a serious issue with a passenger in front of us who kept jamming his seat back into our knees. The flight staff did a great job of trying to resolve the issue. But the bottom line is that the seats are way too close together for such a long flight."
Pros: "United was operating the flight. They asked for 200 to assign me seat next to the path. I found out in the plane after i got to my middle seat that they gave a good front seat close to the path to somebody who was stand by..... They also stated that they can not check my nags to Sofia since they DO NOT FLY TO SOFIA..."

Pros: "As always, Lufthansa provides a great flight experience. Attentive crew, clean seats, and good leg room. Will fly Lufthansa again and again."
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as last year. Not bad, just not as good."
Cons: "Although we had reserved (paid) seats as a family in an entire row, upon check in we were given different seats. We had to spend 20 minutes talking with different agents in order to get our original seats."
Pros: "I liked he cleanliness of the plane and failities, friendliness and professionalism of the flight attendence and Crew members. on time schedule and flight."
Cons: "The Food was terrible, I would rather have the Option to pay for something more edible"
Pros: "Great planes."
Cons: "Flight attendants didn't want to help me find space for my bag. There were many small pockets so I asked them to help arrange so we could fit my bags. Without even looking they said there's no room. 'I can't do that' is what I was told. So who can?? (Maybe she was a transfer from united)"
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew, the space and and the food was ok"
Cons: "The movie And tv show selection could have been better."
Pros: "The Lufthansa crew in Munich was very helpful when my boarding pass would not go through - I was not told I needed a new pass for that flight (as the first one had been cancelled and rebooked: 2 Air Berlin flights). No one was of help until this point, and the Lufthansa crew even offered to check on my baggage for us only to notice it never left Berlin; we didn't get it for 3 days. This did not surprise me because last time I flew Air Berlin for an 8 day cycling & camping trip, I didn't see my bike for 5 days (you can imagine this sort of ruins the entire point of the trip). After reading a lot of complaints with Air Berlin and never hearing back from their customer service (ever) after numerous forms filled out, I knew checking our bags with Air Berlin from the start would mean we wouldn't see them in New York. I even said to the Air Berlin employee at check in that I refused to check my bag because of my past experience and he "assured" me my bag would be at JFK when I got there. Ha. It was nice to see the Lufthansa crew shocked at how poorly this trip home was working out for my husband and I."
Cons: "After the cancelled flight, we were very disappointed to be rebooked with Air Berlin. We do not want to fly Lufthansa if they are so closely associated with Air Berlin, and will tell our friends the same."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed which caused us to miss our next flight. This was a huge inconvenience. When we were in line to get our hotel they did not help the people who were first in line. We were in the middle of the line, but got everything organized for us LAST."
Pros: "Lufthansa always does an excellent job, even with a gate change."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Please do it more easy for the costumers"
Cons: "The people who have baggage for check in can do it since the beginin the travel gol and back"
Pros: "Plenty of overhead bin space, comfortable seats, headphones were fantastic."
Cons: "Crew was pretty much non-existent and only came around about twice to serve drinks or food, and they were not super friendly."
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Flight left an hour late and with no explanation"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "It was overbooked."
Pros: "Flight was on schedule. Was lucky to get a empty seat next to me so plenty of room. Glad they provided the requested specialty meal."
Cons: "Boarding occurred an mass. No order what so ever so long lines getting to the plane and in the plane. The head phone jack was for a two prong headphone so it forced you to use the headphone they provided or only hear from one ear."
