Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "We had a three hour departure delay in Munich"
Pros: "easy boarding. crew was nice."
Cons: "terrible seats. no tv or chargers."
Pros: "The flight was only about 1 hour. Everything ran smoothly once we took off. The crew was very good, providing gate information for connecting passengers."
Cons: "It would have been better if we had departed on time. I don't remember why there was a late departure but it made it difficult for some passengers to make their connecting flight. My husband and I hurried to the gate for our flight to Washington, DC but that flight left late, too."
Pros: "Flight was on time both ways."
Cons: "had to pay for wine- first time in 25 years of flying international and it was very expensive flight, oh well, will skip Condor next time"
Pros: "The crew was the best! Excellent service... kind and caring as well as professional."
Cons: "As always, more space but I was fortunate enough to get an exit row this time, which helped."

Pros: "Lufthansa is great."
Pros: "Loved the flight. Definitely better than Swiss which is what we flew in."

Pros: "Great service as always"

Pros: "Clean plane.."
Cons: "I was very upset that from Kuwait to Frankfurt I paid in sir net but the speed was very bad . It's not fair to pay 15$ for that it's not fair. And I ask my money refund! And again they saying that speed is very good for watching YouTube and video streaming! Why Lie?? IT IS NOT FAIR!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, Lufthansa was not able to reschedule the same day."

Cons: "Houston isn't their hub and I have to put up with United."

Cons: "Nice crew"
Pros: "I liked it overall"
Cons: "I absolutely hated and was very surprised at the completely illogical step of making people who have connection flights wait. Lufthansa was the one that scheduled two of my flights so close together, not letting people with connection flights to un-board first is completely counterproductive. Most other airlines let people with connecting flights unboard first."
Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled my flight on November 23rd a few hours prior to departures because their pilots went on a strike. When I called and asked if they would rebook me the lady on the phone said that she could rebook for a trip that had two layovers from 2pm(Prague time) to 8:30pm(NYC time) for the 24th of November (thanksgiving). When I asked her if there was anything else she said that was the soonest flight she could find. When I checked my self I found and booked a flight for the 23rd. When I called back they refused to give me a refund."
Pros: "I like the friendly crew. They give refreshments at no charge on a 40 minute flight and get it done in time."
Pros: "Food/drink choices and portions were very generous on our long haul flight over the Atlantic into central Europe from the west coast of the the US. Efficient boarding. Lots of entertainment options as well."
Pros: "Quick straight forward"
Cons: "No entertainment at all"
Pros: "The crew, food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "I could not even cross my leg. The coach seats are ridiculous and because of that, I will not book on the airline again. Sorry, coach seats should be an option for everyone, not just someone the size of a 9 year old. I'm only 5'2" and 120 lbs."
Pros: "Great crews, great amenities, good food. Best flights I've been on in a long time."

Pros: "The flight was very good."
Pros: "Service was good. In flight selection of movies, music, tv etc was good. Flight camera was cool. Got a snack and drink in a 50 minute flight."
Pros: "We were given a free meal (sandwich) on this short duration flight. I thought that was a nice touch."
Cons: "The boarding process wasn't very smooth."
Cons: "I wanted to check 2 bags, even though you only get one free checked bag for economy international. The desk agent at check-in wouldn't check my second bag and didn't know how much the fee even was for the second bag. She was not exactly pleasant, which might have been because it was 430 in the morning but still. I just ended up carrying on two pretty big bags. The crew ended up gate checking one for me in Frankfurt which was nice. But I would have paid not to carry that dumb thing around with me through the giant Frankfurt airport. Other than the one desk woman in Prague, everything else was good."
Pros: "Crew service was excellent. I would recommend Lufthansa to everybody."
Cons: "Considering the length of flight we received o.k. refreshment."
Pros: "Very short fligh so there was no entertainment but everything else was perfect"
