Lufthansa keeps dropping quality of service. The food is just awful and I noticed other passengers also skipped the meals. They used Boeings before now just Airbus that feel old and are as comfortable as a bus. However Lufthansa seem to be the cheapest option so I should not complain.
The food was surprisingly good, and the beverages plentiful. The seat back entertainment screen was super fun. The only problem was that my seat back did not recline, while those around me did. And on a 9+ hour flight where I knew I needed to sleep, really uncomfortable. I was definitely unable to sleep. 🙁
Pros: "Al the flights was nice with no issues"
Cons: "The food that I have with Lufthansa was super bad and there’s no Choise, however, the connect flight wit with United airline have very good food and , what I want say is United airline airplane much better than Lufthansa in every thing even the seats is much nicer"
Pros: "The audacity of your gross negligence in a time of global pandemic."
Cons: "Any semblance of social responsibility or ethical behavior."
Pros: "There was nothing really special or to write home about--flight got us there safely and ahead of schedule, albeit, uncomfortably (seats were extremely thin and uncomfortable) and the pitch/distance between seat rows was extremely short & cramped.."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable; they were extremely thin and uncomfortable--and airline could give more legroom/pitch between seats."
Pros: "Really friendly and efficient crew."
Cons: "Seats and entertainment screen."
Pros: "Reliable airline."
Cons: "Overly strict on luggage size and weight. I’m talking about 0.1 kg difference. I was attempted twice to check the only small case I have, which is an exact fit to Lufthansa standard. Very annoying. Won’t fly LH again. British Airways is a lot better."
Pros: "The food was fine to abv"
Cons: "The wait time was extremely long and would be even longer when going back to Boston"
Pros: "The airplane crew were very reassuring"
Cons: "Gate was changed 3 times and flight was delayed 2 times too!"
Pros: "Crew was professional, kind and capable. Everyone went smoothly and on time. The downstairs bathrooms were great: roomy, clean and FIVE of them so no waiting!"
Cons: "The food was just okay. A better choice of wine and more selection of spirits would be nice."
Cons: "flight delays altered all my further plans"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Everything else was average."
Cons: "With the exception of one Asian cabin crew, others were cold. Food has worsened on Lufthansa. Portion and quality are not as good as 1 year ago. I find the seat average in comfort for premium economy. If only the seat would move forward, I keep sliding off it. Cathay Pacific has a much better seat."
Cons: "No LH flight details in the E-ticket from Dus. to Bkk. I have to contact Thai Airways for more details. Too short time for transited from Munich to Dus. and I missed flight, luggages didn't arrive with my new flight. Very very very bad experience with this booing by this website and I absolutely not accommodate with this web again."
Cons: "Totally Re routed. Bleh."
Pros: "FRA to PHL excellent"
Cons: "I was rebooked into FRA from BSL without notification."
Pros: "Great movie choices . Flight on time, comfortable. No turbulence, smooth."
Cons: "I did not like the food … I’m allergic to dairy so I can’t have cheese or cream in pasta or milk in polenta with beef stew. So there wasn’t anything for me to eat. Plus the crew should tell you what kind of pasta you’re getting! I got the pasta but I didn’t know it was filled with cheese and cream but by the time they came back to me I told them that I can’t have this they didn’t have anymore left of anything so I didn’t have anything to eat. And the breakfast the next day was awful. And by the way I saw that the crew had a really good meal. I should be able to pick up meal ahead of time… When you’re booking. It was a long day with no hot meal."
Pros: "Decent food."
Cons: "No onboard entertainment."
Pros: "Lots of space....very comfortable seat."
Cons: "Can’t think of a thing."
Cons: "Very hot throughout the entire flight."

Pros: "Efficient crew. Quick service, quick flight."
Cons: "No negatives."
Pros: "Flight went smoothly boarding was a little delayed."
Cons: "Getting to gate 10 minutes after boarding time and no one had boarded yet."
Cons: "I didn't like going downstairs to the bathroom. I'm sure there is a good reason why we did it. Also, the seats are too close together for a trip of that length of time."
Pros: "Had a very comfortable journey. Nice and friendly crew. Amenities at Frankfurt were excellent."
Pros: "Friendliness of staff Efficiency"
Cons: "Overall a very good service and no complaints but if In House entertainment was provided it would enhance the experience."
Cons: "Walk from gate extreme"
Pros: "The crew was nice Checking was quick and painless Entertainment had a limited options but good"

Pros: "The whole flight crew was so polite."
Pros: "By far the best flying experience in a long time..."
Pros: "The crew was spectacular. They had 20 crew members."
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive at our final destination of Madrid. It was awful. Also, after many passengers, including us, had fallen asleep, they woke us to put our seat backs up so the people behind us could put their tray tables down."
Pros: "Leg room and the chairs were great."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Extremely nice staff starting from check-in and till the end of flight, everything was perfectly on time"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The hot towelettes before eating was very nice."
Cons: "Squished in the middle of a row. Unable to get up and get things out of my bag. Video screen not working. I had been looking forward to catching up on some movies ( rarely have time for to or movies usually) was disappointed to have no working screen on such a long flight. Did appreciate the effort to supply a gluten free meal, unfortunately someone added whole wheat crackers ( luckily still in wrapper ). The boarding area was mixed with people trying to get to New Jersey at the next gate making it very crowded and confusing, people found themselves in the wrong line."
Pros: "The crew was great. The seats were ok."
Cons: "Check in was very, very slow, for some reason."
Pros: "Flight was on schedule, food was good."
Cons: "Could add more to the entertainment list"
Pros: "Efficiency...I sat three rows behind the crying babies...but with ear phones...had a pleasant flight"
Cons: "Once again - the connecting flights through Frankfurt are difficult because of the size of the airport and the location of the gates. Make certain there is enough time between flights to get to new gate. Use extra time to purchase some of the excellent food items"
Cons: "Delays and boarding"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. They offered half a sandwich and drinks which was unexpected (and delicious)for a short flight."
Cons: "There was no negative only positive, two thumbs up....."
Pros: "Lunch was really good..yet,bread needs to be warm it adds desired comfort during the long flight."
Cons: "Breakfast need to include something else ,not just eggs. There should be an alternative for those who are allergic to eggs ,like me. Couple of hot wheat pancakes with Apple sause would do."
Cons: "Agents in Budapest were not pleasant at all."
Pros: "we love flying with Lufthansa. the staff are always so helpful and accommodating!"
Cons: "the food was good not great and the movie selections wasn't good compared to other flights. The comfort..........well, it's an airplane."
Pros: "Cheese sandwiches were good."
Cons: "Long delay of the flight due to weather conditions."
Cons: "After so much money given to private airlines from the government to mitigate their loses during the pandemic, they are still packing their planes back to back. It should be a law to forbid more than two passenger per sit row leaving the middle seat empty, unless they're in the same reservation."
Cons: "Disastrous rescheduling"
Pros: "Big selection of movies if you have the United app."
Cons: "Tiny overheads in the 777 so they took carry-ons from at least half the people on the flight. Out of the hamburger by the time they left Economy Plus. Narrow seats, very little seat pitch. I am not quite 5' 10" and I only have a couple inches between my legs and the seatback. Similarly cramped restrooms."
Pros: "FA did his best"
Cons: "Flight not cancelled"
Cons: "Several delays for maintenance and then plane in our gate when we landed"
Pros: "I enjoy the plus seats with extra leg room"
Cons: "I found your crew quite unfriendly"

Cons: "50 minutes wait on the runway in a very small plane. No room for carry ons"
Pros: "The United stewardess was lovely"
Cons: "The women in the Redmond/Bend security were less than friendly and helpful. In fact she seemed intent on delaying us for no apparent reason."
Pros: "We had a 1pm connecting flight to SF enroute to Los Angeles and it was suddenly cancelled without any notification. Luckily, Kayak had notified me about the cancellation and we immediately called United to take the next flight out. The earliest was at 5:50pm and we didn’t get back to LA till 7:50pm. The 5:50pm flight was late and therefore push everything out..."
Cons: "No communication from United... the crew and staff was fine, it was just the lack of communication that was disappointing! Not to mention, I had my dog boarded at Doggy Daycare and I’d missed picking her up due to the late return back to LA."
Cons: "my reservation was cancelled by united with out checking with me."
Pros: "The whole experience was good. This would be my favorite airlines in the future to travel anywhere"

Pros: "being my first time flying international everything went smooth. The staff was very helpful."
Cons: "This flight went smooth, I was very pleased with it."
Pros: "The crew was nice, quick check ins and boarding. They were very accommodating during the flight."
Cons: "Although it was breakfast, not everyone wants sausage or the other option of fruit and yogurt. Meals should be offered in the literature provided by time, as in reality, if you're not going to sever the expansive US menu throughout the day. I was unable to order a salad at 9 am, regardless of being starving. Also I'm 5'1, there isn't enough leg room. Power outlets should not be a first class luxury, that is rediculous. We all need to charge our devices. TV should not come as an extra charge."
Pros: "I like the price and the time of the flight. Thank you"
Pros: "I liked that it was a fast flight arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seating was crowded."
Pros: "On time Nice crew No complaints"
Cons: "Pure sugar snack"
Cons: "That I never made it to Dallas and so lost my job. Thanks to unitrd."
Cons: "I'm not sure if I missed the fine print saying this flight is operated by United or if it wasn't started at all, but it was a complete surprise on the day of travel to discover that what I thought would be a Lufthansa flight was instead operated by one of my least favorite airlines, one that I normally avoid booking with, for the transcontinental leg of my trip. Because of this, when I tried to upgrade my seat upon checking in, the Lufthansa website redirected me to the United website which in turn just gave me an error. I ended up in a shitty seat for 11 hours. The crew were fine but the quality of the food and snacks served was pretty mediocre and it was clearly an old plane, the Economy seats didn't have individual screens for personal entertainment, we had to watch whatever was shown on the screens for the entire cabin. These small things matter when you're stuck in a seat for 11 straight hours. If I had known it was United I wouldn't have selected this flight."
Cons: "Crew were very nice and the airplane was clean,"
Pros: "The huge windows and overhead bins on the 787 are fantastic. United has a decent seatback entertainment system, however it could stand to use maybe a few more movies. In economy the food was palatable, I went with the cheese manicotti for "lunch" and was awoken to a ham and cheese on a pretzel bun for "breakfast." The Illy coffee is much better than the old garbage."
Cons: "The boarding area at CDG while nice was very hot. The huge windows made the place a hot house. I was relieved to get on the plane where it was much cooler."
Cons: "Severe delays. Disorganized boarding procedures. No internet."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Arrived at designated time"
Cons: "Really only a snack pack and water."
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed, United could not get me to Richmond before 5 pm. Not acceptable. They had to book me on another airline. Never took the united flights."
Cons: "They cancelled my return flight when I rebooked through united online."
Pros: "The flight was delayed for who knows what reason and after many it's gonna be right here! It took an hour and therefore delayed my arrival to my final destination 6 hours!!!"
Cons: "Ok for a short flight"
Pros: "The boarding was quick and efficient. The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "The plane is old. It lacks entertainment amenities. Bolt Bus and Grayhound are luxurious in comparison to this United plane."
Pros: "I had a comfortable flight it was on time the people were congenial everything was good."
Cons: "Kayak did not notify me 24 hours in advance for my flight itinerary. I was a little disappointed in this."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed twice on both the trip out and the return. It's not such a bit deal for a longer flight, but when the flight is barely more than an hour and it's delayed for an hour each time it really starts to negate the point of flying instead of driving when you factor in the airport time."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was satisfactory."
Cons: "Having to pay a baggage fee for the one bag I checked; lack of seat/leg room."
Cons: "The snack offering was not appealing. I understand nut allergy sensitivities but the option was poorly decided."
Pros: "Very nice that my husband and I were upgraded to first class on this short flight. It was a short flight but we were very comfortable for that time."
Cons: "I'm very upset I left an item in the overhead bin and had customer service call over as soon as we realized, but they said it wasn't there. There's no way, it had to be there and they didn't look very hard. I submitted a claim and they still haven't found it."
Cons: "No beverage service, glass of room temp water, no ice"
Pros: "This was one of the top 5 worst flights. I have over 150k of miles logged. I will do my best to NEVER fly United again."
Pros: "I was in a wheel chair and the crew in the airport made my transitiins within the airport very easy"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and accommodating. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "Dad services they don't care about the passengers"
Cons: "Everything!!!!!!!Delay led to missed connection which led to flying to another city but plane had mechanical issues then that plane was late, then plane was full so had find another city too fly into. Planes are not going to any of that cities upstate. Had to then go to LaGuardia airport to catch a Delta connection to Syracuse my. NEVER AGAIN!!!!"
Pros: "The crew members were friendly and efficient."
Pros: "Quick load and exit"
Cons: "Small plane. Dozens of bags taken in jetway so a long wait for delivery. Rough ride throughout"
Pros: "The jet was excellent. The boarding was easy and organized. The flight crew was very polite and professional. Everything went in a timely manner......."
Cons: "United overbooked by 5 passengers and that's not an acceptable practice. It's not fair to those who pay then get bumped off the flight..... This is terrible and needs to be stopped."
Pros: "Price looked good at booking."
Cons: "Old prop plane was grounded 5 min. after our boarding time. Went to several gates to try to hop on another flight but nothing got me to my destination in time -- so a total loss. Tried to cancel by phone (line to gate service was 50+ people deep), and was told I couldn't cancel. Then was told I could. Then was told I had to call back! TOTAL LOSS. Refund is needed."
Pros: "No drama. Everything on time. Crews were great."
Cons: "Seats cramped but I'm 6'7" so I should have put more effort into getting a bulkhead or emergency exit seat. My fault."
Pros: "The plane waited for all of the lint writing luggage to be delivered which was helpful for me because mine was part of that"
Cons: "Paying for entertainment on the tiny screen – this should always be free"
Cons: "Delayed for more than 2 hours"
