Pros: "Seat comfort."
Cons: "Food selection."
Pros: "Food and crew were good"
Cons: "The seats recline back so far that it really intrudes into the space of the person behind you. At one point the guy in front of me reclined back so far and fast it slammed my eReader and spilled my coffee. Also the touch screen media app does not work well on Lufthansa."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class for a reasonable fee."
Pros: "Bathrooms were clean"
Cons: "The entertainment was not functioning"
Pros: "Literally one of the worst check in experiences I have ever had traveling"
Cons: "The person checking me in could have given me a few minutes to help me understand the flight delay"
Pros: "Cabin crew's service was excellent! Very attentive and friendly. Special diet (gluten-free) dinner was delicious. Lavatories located downstairs."
Cons: "Economy seating was too tight. Not enough space or leg room."
Cons: "Sittinf in the middle"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good selections of movies for entertainment. Polite flight attendants. Overall a relaxing trip."
Cons: "Weak selection of TV shows for entertainment, but movies selections were very good so overall not a real problem."
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing, as well as the first meal....restaurant quality."
Pros: "They were great with service"
Cons: "Having to have to close my window shade so I couldn't see outside"
Cons: "The TV sound didn’t work too well. Excellent staff Ms Maria Was very gracious."
Pros: "Gate, boarding and smooth sailing on A380 bus by the pilots"
Pros: "Excellent crew. Great entertainment options."
Pros: "Upstairs deck for economy is a small space but is relatively quiet. Boarding was relatively quick through electronic gates where you scan your boarding card. Flight attendant was very personable. She was checking some passenger names as some seemed to have switched seats and remembered mine for the rest of the flight. Something you usually get in business class but a first for me in economy. They also came around several times during the flight with water/juice, and snacks. Entertainment was ok. A mixture of newer movies available."
Cons: "Like all economy seating not much space especially when the person in front reclines their seat. This makes getting in and out of the seat a little difficult. Food a bit limited. 2 main meals for this flight (lunch/dinner) - chicken or pasta for the first one and beef or pasta (again) for the pre-landing meal. Also the attendant didn’t know the translation of the pasta dish from German to English so that was a bit disappointing. One thing to note. I flew Hamburg to Frankfurt to connect to the San Francisco flight with a 1 hour layover. You need to go through passport control in FRA and then I hustled to get to the gate. They were boarding as I arrived but maybe 10 minutes later and I would have missed my flight. No issues with the airline just a cautionary note on the layover time. I would likely book an earlier connecting flight to give a bit more time."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so friendly and helpful. The food was good...didn't even have to pay for food or wine. On-board entertainment was excellent. I would fly Lufthansa any time!"
Pros: "Comfort and space"
Cons: "Plane was scheduled to depart at 10:30 and didn't leave ground until 11:40, unacceptable."
Pros: "Food was pretty good,Lufthansa one of the best companies to fly with."
Cons: "delayed boarding then waited three hours after we boarded for deicing. The piolet and crew did not update us. Made the flight very long."
Pros: "All worked as expected"
Cons: "No remarks to make"
Cons: "My flight schedule changed after I bought the ticket, which resulted in paying for the hotel for the extra night and using one more PTO day."
Pros: "Quiet comfortable flight"
Cons: "Unorganized biarding and no labeling on hallway what direction to take."
Cons: "Unable to make the flight due to connecting flight being cancelled."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great, friendly, courteous and responsive. The relaxation and mediation program was great! Boarding was fluent and easy."
Cons: "No matter what you try to order on the airplane is totally disgusting. If it's not overloaded with cheese and tomato sauce then it's overcompensated with spices (salt or chili). I will never understand why it is so hard to provide simple, fresh and enjoyable meals. Chairs in economy are rarely cleaned up and one can see on the cushions that they are worn out and have lost their padding making the seats very uncomfortable. There was no foot rest available (which is such a simple addition that helps a lot) and the "holder pocket" on the seat in front was a simple net completely useless. Tables were dirty suggesting they were never cleaned and disinfected. Knowing that the highest source of viruses are the tray tables and the pockets in front I would expect attention to be focused on those- it not only impacts the health of the traveler but more important that of the crew. Why is it so hard to think of this business two fold: make revenue but mostly be kind to humans."
Pros: "The positive attitude of the crew members. Even though flight long they continued to smile. Very smooth flying and plane on time. Free drinks including alcohol."
Cons: "Cramped conditions."
Pros: "Lufthansa flights are by far the best way to fly transatlantic!!"
Cons: "We were offered two hot meals, each time with the same 2 choices. That's not much to choose from..."
Cons: "The food was not enough, not taste. For 11 hours only two meals. I wanted to change my meal with another they refused"
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Boarding was even more chaotic. No clear signs for premium economy."
Cons: "The crew didn't seem quite ready for offering refreshments, and I had to go and ask for water several times. The snacks weren't very ubstantial, and having a good 4-5 hours in between meals was hard for me as I had been traveling for a long time already."
Pros: "Food was very good, super nice crew. Good selection of movies. Boarding was great, we are seniors, we didn't ask for assistance beforehand, but the person at the gate called us over and had us board early. Much appreciated!"
Cons: "Seats were just too cramped. We chose seats and paid extra to do that, but the seating charts really didn't give a very good idea of what to expect or how to choose. Announcements were to difficult to understand. Also in the gate area, I couldn't understand names at all. Need to slow down and speak more clearly."
Cons: "11 hours of crying babies was too much. The practice of placing 4 cribs together on the bulkhead encouraged one baby to set the others off screaming. The toddler siblings then started fussing, the parents were then jumping up and down, jostling the other passengers, it was a nightmare! Hated every minute of it."
Pros: "I liked how organized the crews are. The flight attendants are driven by efficiency. Things were done quickly like serving drinks and water. Appreciated having the hand towel to wipe the hands before serving the meals."
Cons: "I fly economy class with United and Lufthansa when I travel from the US to Asia or Europe. Lufthansa seats feel narrower. I am only 1.62 meters in height. I felt there was not enough room for a 12+ hour flight (delayed by one hour). The small leg room began to take a toll after 6 hours of flight."
Cons: "This long haul flight was on an Airbus plane with five restrooms in the basement. There was not enough space to accommodate people waiting in the basement so people had to stand on stairs or by the galley. Flight attendants kept on telling people not to do so but there was simply not enough space."
Pros: "going home"
Cons: "support call line entertainment food connection time all sub standard in economy plus... will not use again."
Pros: "The price for a direct flight was reasonable"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working and movie selection poor. No individual screens especially for a 10 hr flight. Staff were not that friendly either. Old plane and small seats. I would rather pay more for a more comfortable flight."
Cons: "I did not like the surprise of having to pay for a seat reservation, once I had purchased my tickets. This was costly and certainly unexpected."
Cons: "It was long terrible 24 hr journey with a pregnant wife"
Pros: "The whole flight was very comfortable"
Cons: "all the food relied on bell pepper for flavor. Bell pepper is highly overrated"
Pros: "Food was terrible"
Cons: "Toilets were not clean"
Pros: "The plane was incredible,the comfort,service,food was outstanding!I have been flying with many airlines over many years but this was amazing!!!Thank you,Lufthansa!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Good flight, liked the extra leg room."
Cons: "While on board, the flight attendants forgot to give me food. They gave me drinks, but good until I asked another attendant. Bad service!!!"
Pros: "It was good because I was placed in EconomyPlus"
Cons: "Was not able to check-in on line and I could not book my seat - so I was just assigned seating. Fortunately it worked and I got the window seat on the shorter flights and an aisle seat for the longer flight."
Pros: "Constant food & drinks; large selection of movies, shows, music, games. Very courteous staff."
Pros: "Great entertainment options"
Cons: "Did they really have to collect headsets a full 30 minutes before we landed? I was right in the middle of a movie. Next time I'll just hide it."
Pros: "Crew members were very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Seat felt very cramped, even more than usual . I could barely get in /out of my seat if the seat in front of me was reclined."
Pros: "The crew was excellent; professional and calm The movie selection was great The plane was quite new and comfortable"
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic for such a large plane; why don't they board by row numbers? My special meal was not very tasty"
Pros: "crew was great boarding was fine"
Cons: "Chicken dinner tasted awful Seat spacing (specially when front passenger reclines )very crowded"
Pros: "Ease of boarding."
Cons: "Food, comfort on plane and entertainment system broke."
Cons: "The entertainment screens did not work during the entire flight, even after a reset. The plane was falling apart, with peeling paint and creaking noises during every movement."
Cons: "There was no flight information working. Food was way too less in terms of both quantity and frequency (number of meals)."
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. Flight status did not show in the seat monitors."
Cons: "Food wasn't good at all, so if you improve the food quality, that would be much better experience."
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Toilets didn’t work, they were dirty and no water!"
Cons: "Food could have been better... The croissants were not of good quality.. For entertainment there was nothing on board on the TV."
Pros: "I liked the timeliness of the flight and early arrival."
Cons: "Air India really needs to work on customer satisfaction. The boarding process was confusing and disorganized without announcement. In addition, several families were not sitting together and were upset about their seating thus kept asking to switch seats which was bothersome. In addition, the entertainment needs an upgrade. The streaming was slow and would crash. Seats were uncomfortable. This direct flight is great, but Air India has a lot to work on."
Pros: "Spacious seats. Shorter duration."
Cons: "Crew is unprofessional. They are least interested in helping Air India survive or thrive. We need better trained and considerate crew to help air India compete with the rest."
Cons: "My flight from Delhi was at 4:40 in the morning they served us a Appetizer with no drinks no breakfast and few hours before landing in the morning they served dinner"
Cons: "I purchased seats through justfly but air india refused to honor my seat selection. In fact this happened earlier between SFO to Delhi and Delhi to Pune as well. Money down the drain."

Cons: "Air India is close to no frills travel. The movies were working this time though."
Cons: "The tv audio was not working and non of the crew came to see if it could be fixed."
Pros: "Food and timings."
Cons: "entertainment system was not working"
Pros: "The flight crew was awesome. Very friendly and welcoming. Served well even in between the scheduled service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 5 hours. No reason given other than operational issues. What does that mean? All airport staff sucked at both airports. SFO more so. They broke my bag. There was no agents around for an hour.. Then they said 40$ is the maximum they pay for a broken bag!"
Cons: "I wish the crew was service oriented. As this is the only direct flight is the only reason to take this flight."
Cons: "short delay when desembarquing"
Pros: "Crew was helping, leg space was good and food service was very good."
Cons: "All my check-in bags were missing and they handled the complaints really bad. The flight was delayed for 3 hours and no proper communication, very pathetic experience, none of the TV's were working fine. Would not highly recommend."
Cons: "I had lost my gold bracelet on the flight. I'm quite sure, left it on the seat. And when I tried to call air india's customer service number, they had no idea what's the right number to contact to check if there is any hope to finding that bracelet."
Pros: "Customer services was good"
Cons: "There was only one major meal service on a 15 hour flight... the sandwiches and other food had gone bad - ended up with food poisoning after landing. Beverage choices were non. Existent - even basic options in business were not available. Product needs a thorough cleaning and some equipment didn’t work or wasn’t well maintained"
Cons: "Every thing"
Cons: "Overhead reading light and TV display were broken rendering me without entertainment for 16 hours. I couldn't event charge my electronics to use them as a flashlight to read my books as the USB chargers were broken for the whole row. I couldn't even get the attendant's attention for a while since the attendant call-button was broken. By the time she walked by next (hours later) she restarted it but it didn't fix the issue and I had no way of getting her attention again for a while. Really awful experience."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Entertainment systems broken for half of passengers on board. Broken tray tables, flight attendants admitted that this is very common and passengers will have to deal with it. All they offered was logging in log book which they told no one reads. Have video and picturen proof for all of these"
Cons: "Bad crew service. Tv was not working as it was a long flight, hard to pass time without entertainment"
Cons: "TV did not work both ways. Poor selection of content."
Pros: "The airline hostesses did their best to meet requests. The food quality was below standard. There were no hand wipes provided for cleansing before or after mesls"
Cons: "I was pulled out of line at check in. The male employee grappled my passport and boarding pass and insisted that I follow him and check through the Indian Passport immigration line though I am an American citizen with a US passport. Then taken quite some distance to a back room where two male employees stared at me and wrote down my passport number and name in a log book. My passport and boarding pass were repeatedly taken and held without my permission. After checking thru customs, I was among the first to arrive at the designated gate 36 which was initially closed . When boarding time arrived, I was among the first on line to board. I was again pulled out of line and prevented from boarding until way past the last boarding call with no clear explanation. I am a 72 year old RN and was suffering from severe bronchitis and a head injury sustained on acsidewalk In the town of Solan while searching fur an ATM. No accommodations were provided for my age or physical condition. The unexplained, rude and cruel conduct by Air India employees constituted elder abuse. I feel an apology and a refund are the least that Air India needs to provide considering their cruel behavior. I would advise all seniors especially women to avoid flying Air India."
Cons: "The food is served buffet style. Obviously that does not keep it at the correct temperature for 25+ hours. I battled Food poisoning within hours from getting off the plane."
Pros: "Fast flight to SFO. No connecting wait time ."
Cons: "My monitor for entertainment was not working at all. The flight attendant said he will reset it but it didn't work. Even my light didn't work. I was left doing nothing in the plane, neither watch entertainment on monitor nor read a book on a very long flight. This is a very poor service, I am considering not to fly on air India anymore."
Pros: "Convenient flight from Delhi to San Francisco, however our entire entertainment system was not working and the crew also misbehaved with us. I was sitting in 22H. My wife was in 22J and our other flight passenger in 22K also had issues with their system."
Cons: "Bad service, bad crew and also misbehaved with us. When we complained they said we can't do anything. It was a 16 hour non-stop flight. all systems should be checked before you leave the ground. Or you provide a capability of refunding your passengers."
Cons: "Air India Flights from SFO to New Delhi and New Delhi to SFO are pretty old. Almost 60 % of systems entertainment systems do not work. This is not acceptable considering such a long flight. Unfortunately passengers are left with no option apart feeling gruesome boring thru out journey. Food is also very bad. while it is understandable that it might be not par with other airlines in all ameneties , the basic needs to be met. Hope they look into this and fix it"
Pros: "It saves time on my flight. It goes on time and leaves on time and only took 13 hrs as opposed to 21."
Cons: "Air hostess were HORRIBLE. They don't come for the light, and they disappeared after serving food! Very rude, horrible service and their responses were horrible. I hate it. I don't recommend it for ANYONE. Absolutely nasty."
Pros: "Nothing to complain about"
Cons: "Entertainment sucks. Looks like display from the 90s."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work! No help on the plane,no compensation made."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for all wrong reasons. I've been trying to speak to Air India about a compensation and never got any reply back. Terrible flight and terrible management."
Cons: "The crew was very rude and unhelpful. I kept asking for an extra blanket because I was very cold but I didn't get one the entire flight and was shivering the entire time."
Cons: "1. Less regional movies 2. Remote does not work. 3. System reset (never heard of) takes time 4. Crew does not show up when needed 5. Screen resolution is probably 70s style 6. Touch screen does not work 7. No hygeine - no socks or any sleeping aids like other airlines 8. With 15 hours floght, you expect at least some toileteries - tooth brush. Horrible that someone did not even think about it"
Pros: "Boarding, Service was very smooth. Departure and arrival was on time"
Cons: "Food was decent."
Pros: "only thing we liked was the flight was direct. thats it"
Cons: "1. food tasted so bad. it wasnt fresh for sure. 2.Service was aweful. Very hard to get help from the employees. wasn't convenient at all. 3. entertainment screen wasn't working well especially the touch screen wasn't very sensitive. 4.booked two tickets with my spouse but got seated totally apart and didn't even try to seat us together. and lot more."
Cons: "The entertainment system was down. It was very hard to travel with kids with no movies on board. Crew members were rude! I called for service 3 times before someone showed up just to yell at my son that he is playing with call lights. I was extremely mad."
Pros: "my mom said this flight is best ever"
Pros: "Shortest flight for the route"
Cons: "Worn out seats, dirty tray table and around seat, dirty rest rooms, impolite staff, horrible food , maps not working, headphones not working, not able to choose seats online."
