Cons: "Food quality on Detroit - Frankfurt could have been better. About Frankfurt airport: the security check (between gates - for going to gate for connecting flight) was in-efficient.

Pros: "I enjoyed just relaxing, eating good food, drinking as much quality alcohol as I pleased and having all the entertainment I could ask for"
Cons: "The entertainment system could remain active till the actual opening of the doors. Why not?"
Cons: "Rude staff and poor connection management. Airport sucks."
Pros: "The Lufthansa crew is always wonderful as always."
Cons: "screaming and kicking child behind my seat, with no way to "escape". I had a severe cold and that was certainly not something I needed, I tried to get some rest, but that was impossible. The seats are getting smaller and smaller, hardly any legroom whatsoever. Also, what I had planned on bringing on the aircraft as carry on (which was my work equipment, tablet/printer etc), I had to check in as luggage because it was "overweight" meaning more than 8 kg and pay ADDITIONAL $200 (in addition to the $100 I already paid for one suitcase). I've seen many passengers with "heavy" carry on, which they were apparently allowed to bring into the cabin without any problems. I had never had to pay for any carry on, and I am seriously considering using another airline for future business travel."
Pros: "excellent service."
Cons: "I always feel that Lufthansa short changes passengers for the flights to the East. 2 tiny washrooms for business class passengers. Toilet lids non- functional. The flat seats are definitely not comparable to ones for travel in the Western Sector."
Cons: "Less leg room"
Pros: "1. Good choice of movies. The entertainment recommendations by airlines were well thought of. 2. Crew and service was one of the best. They timely came and offered juice and water. 3. We were well informed when flight had to make few rounds in the air before landing."
Pros: "I liked the food - especially vegetarian options."
Cons: "There was very limited vegetarian food available, should have been amply available. The crew was running around to get more veg meals."
Cons: "There were no options for food, I was just told that there was only pasta left while the passenger next to me ate chicken. This was totally unacceptable. I only hope that this was my last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "New planes but staff not friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Definitely need to increase food budget and quality. Compare with Emirates about same fare much better food and drinks."
Cons: "To change the gates takes about 45 minutes."
Pros: "The friendly crew were good."
Cons: "Insufficient legroom, limited drink options and dirty toilets. The flight was booked completely and hence the toilets were always occupied and unclean."
Pros: "WiFi, entertainment and USB charging was good."
Cons: "Felt herded like cattle during the boarding process. No children's amenities as advertised. Children's meal was so-so. Adult meals had chocolate included, which children's meal did not have. Seriously?! The snack provided was all inclusive for adults and children and was way too spicy for my 6-year-old."
Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled my flight at midnight before Thanksgiving and left me with no option to get home for the Holiday."
Pros: "Professional and cheerful."
Cons: "Not a lot."
Pros: "I love Lufthansa: flight attendants so attentive, Complimentary services that other airlines charge for. Attentive staff...and I flew economy."
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "My family took a flight earlier and my daughter complained about giving chicken to her although she was registered asian vegeterian. Same think happened to me as well. I was offered chicken even when i asked for asian vegeterian. When i asked to replace with vege option, the crew member replace with sea food, If this happens again, on my return flight, i am not going to let it go."
Pros: "Good service, clean airy aircraft"
Cons: "Boarding in Munich not well organized for business class passengers as it could be"
Cons: "This was actually operated by United and as usual united service food and quality was way below the norm. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Upgrade because of delay, escort to airplane, baggage service"
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: "Crew crew crew. Great crew. Food Entertainment"
Cons: "Size of seats too small in economy Leg space narrow"
Pros: "Prompt boarding and takeoff, comfortable seat, good service and food."
