I hadn’t found a way to pay for a checked bag online, so that process was a little awkward - had to leave my passport and boarding passes at the check in counter, walk to the ticketing counter, wait in line to pay, then walk back to the check in counter. But the staff was very friendly and kind."

Pros: "flights were comfortable."

Then they canceled my return flights TXL- FRA-MCO because "I didn't complete my journey". They rebooked me as wait list and then eventually I was confirmed. Luggage lost on return flight, no idea if/when I will receive."
Cons: "Very bad food"
Pros: "Used an Airbus 320 this flight, which is larger than the Bombardier and much better overhead storage. Flight is approximately 20 minutes and does not have any service such as food or entertainment."
Cons: "Flight left 10 minutes late. Making next connection is stressful since Frankfort airport is large and they do not schedule enough time. Security lines very long over 25 minutes."
Cons: "Flight got delayed 9 hours."
Cons: "Boarding free for all, therefore confusing and slow"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and friendly. I enjoyed the flight, mostly because of them."
Pros: "The food for the morning was a white chocolate cranberry cookie which was delicious"
Cons: "Our plane was 30 mins late and the terminal was right next to security so we couldn’t hear them when they spoke the English or French on the PA system about us being delayed. We just barely made our connecting flight and our next flight was way better in service. Our luggage didn’t make the connection and hoping that all our precious cargo from our anniversary trip made it. The flight attendant told us we had enough time to make it to our next flight but I honestly ran from one point of the airport to the other. The staff said it wasn’t that far and no checkpoints to go through - this information was false."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "The crew were excellent and plane was comfortable"
Cons: "The plane was way out of the terminal and I had asked for assistance which I had going and most of coming back until the last part getting on to the plane at Lufthansa no-one came at Birmingham either. I struggled to collect my case and walk through to the exit."
Pros: "Good service. Multiple languages."
Cons: "Lights were on too much. No time to sleep."
Pros: "Departure was a bit late but we were informed. Even with that delay arrived on time. Coach seat was okay for me. Movies offered could be better but there was enough for my taste. It was a night flight anyway, so I was asleep most of the time."
Pros: "Thank goodness the movies were good."
Cons: "Had to wait in 5 lines before someone could check our bags. no organization at boarding time. Just a free for all."

Cons: "Entertainment selections were limited."
Cons: "We never flew out !! We're still at the airport! Please help us! We have to be in Spain by Saturday"
Cons: "for 3 years, 90% of my flights from Beijing were delayed or cancelled. Beijing International Airport is the worst airport ever. About my flight from Beijing to Munich this time, we were stranded on the runway INSIDE the plane for 5 hours w/o food and water for the first 4 hours!"
Pros: "Our experience flying with Lufthansa was very pleasant. The overall process of making connecting flights through Frankfurt was much easier than we had anticipated. The cabin crew was friendly and courteous. I will be flying Lufthansa again."
Cons: "I would appreciate the ability to check in and get seat assignments at least 2 days before the flight. The day before traveling can be fraught."
Cons: "Ridiing buses on tarmac to get to the plane."
Pros: "Exceptional staff, service."

Pros: "The entertainment system had many 1st run films, my 8 hour flight was filled with great movies"
Cons: "The economy seating was quite cramped, however, you get what you pay for, I could have upgraded to the glorious Economy plus, perhaps next time I will!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding is always a nightmare. First class, and the high flyers are called first. Then premium economy, then economy. A mad rush of people scramble down 2 flights of stairs, then are crammed on a tandem bus that drives out to the plane. You then cross the Tarmac in all types of weather to board. This flight boarded from front and back. Making finding your seat a nightmare as people were traveling in both directions in the aisles. You would think you were in a third world country."
Pros: "crew, cleanliness"
Cons: "very little legroom, very uncomfortable for travellers who cannot afford business class"
Cons: "Broken chair would not stay reclined. TV screens need to be updated. The touch feature only works half the time. You have to keep tapping it. Temperature on the plane goes from freezing to hot. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was excellent."
Cons: "The vegetarian breakfast."
Cons: "The quality of vegetable roll served was absolutely not upto the mark. And when asked for an alternative such as a bread bun with butter .. that too was denied. For a long flight this small things make a lot of difference in the customer satisfaction."
Pros: "it was much more comfortable on the second part of the flight"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was excellent, the food and service was excellent, no complaints except for legroom."
Cons: "I'm a pretty tall guy. Legroom was an issue if you are over 6 ft tall. The trey's / tables can't fully extend making it hard to use for eating."
Cons: "I had tried to postpone my return date, but found it extremely inconvenient dealing with vayama, the service Kayak linked me to. I had to call them at their Amsterdam office to arrange a different itinerary, only to be emailed in the middle of the night with the news that that itinerary was no longer available, and a replacement one would cost much more. Sadly, I was not able to deal with Lufthansa directly. Doubt I would use vayama again."
Pros: "Very positive and responsive crew! A fresh cup of coffee I received when I requested one was delicious. And,one of the crew members made me a cup of tea before they had started serving it."

Cons: "Overall good thanks"
Cons: "Delayed on tarmac 20mins in Chicago, then delayed getting to the get in Philly, bags took 40 mins to get to carousel"

Cons: "United was boarding at least TWO flights out of the same gate, at the SAME time. My luggage was delayed and the United agents in philly told me it would be in at 7 pm... It was in at 7 pm two days later. They sent it to Knoxville for some reason? Will not fly United again."

Pros: "Courteous crew. On time flight( in fact, we arrived in Philadelphia early) love that. Clean plane. Looked new."
Cons: "No drink, no entertainment."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate then delayed again on the plane brocade they couldn't find someone to fill the fuel tank. Once that was complete, we had to wait quite some time before the slip came to the plane to be signed off on. The last issue was that they couldn't get the aircraft pushed out of the gate. The only positive was that my bags arrived this time."
Pros: "Non-existent! !! Canceled AFTER the first leg if the flight....leaving us stranded."
