I had to pay for it again which is a lousy experience."

Pros: "I am 6’3”. But I am also cheap. So I like being able to fit in an economy seat with more room than other airlines. Believe me, an inch or two makes all the difference."
Pros: "The service levels of the crew are the best I have experienced - the quantity and quality of the food and beverage offering is very good Lufthansa also has the cleanest planes I have ever traveled on - and I have traveled plenty for business Lufthansa App is the best This was my first Lufthansa flight and it wont be my last"

Cons: "Boarding seamed inefficient. Loaded handicap onto separate vehicle in middle of us boarding, so it stopped our process. My seat didn't recline even though it had a button. No in flight entertainment?! At all... Got a crappy breakfast omelet that i didn't want to put in my stomach."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"

Cons: "This flight was the second leg on my trip from New York to Munich. Many people on the flight from NY to Brussels were scheduled on this flight and that plane landed in time that this flight would only need to be delayed 10 minutes to allow for us to connect. However, they decided to leave all of us with a long unexpected layover in Brussels, costing many of us a day of what was supposed to be a short vacation for most."
Pros: "Seat and service on board"
Cons: "It was difficult to watch the movies. Some of them were stuck and couldn't be played. Only after a while they "unlocked"."
Pros: "Our dinner meal was quite good for airline food. After they reset my TV three times, it worked good."
Cons: "The breakfast left a lot to be desired. Leg room was very limited, especially after the person in front of me reclined their seat."
Pros: "Great customer services, Very outstanding staff."
Pros: "I specifically booked this flight for the 8 hr layover so I could go downtown Munchen. the Plane was 4 hrs late leaving Edinburgh!! what is there to like? nothing."
Cons: "regardless of the late takeoff from Edinburgh, your boarding procedures are like a 3rd world airport. the food was 1/3 of a sandwich. that's food? no entertainment on board of course. why do I pay $500 for such flights? I'll go Ryanair from now on!"
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Cons: "I could not get any information in Moscow until arriving at the airport."
Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "excellent dinner selection movies and on screen entertainment were great"
Cons: "2 hour wait on tarmac in Dulles for weather no one in the crew could tell us where our connecting gait was or whether we would have enough time to make it"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant, and the food just fine. The entertainment options of movies or music or news were quite good."
Cons: "The first plane left too late to make the connection. The Lufthansa staffer who reorganized my trip considered two options and picked the best one. However, she didn't stress to me how far the next gate was at another terminal -- luckily I asked someone else who helped me get a bus. I am not fluent in German so that may have added to my uncertainty. And my suitcase, which she said she was making sure would get to me in Marseilles, did not come for 24 hours."
Pros: "Lufthansa certainly stands out above ALL American carriers"
Pros: "The crew were really efficient and polite"
Cons: "there were no entertainment modules, no place to plug in phones or computers and the chairs didn't lean back."
Pros: "Our first flight was late. We were met at the gate immediately after landing and were brought individually and directly to our next flight behind the scene, including passport control. Excellent."
Cons: "I wish Lufthansa would find a way to create less trash. Too many small plastic cups are used. Proved refill options rather than new cups."
Pros: "great 747-8 bird, modern, quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "same JFK with always delayed unboarding, wait for the gate and luggage, long lines to everything"
Pros: "leg room"
Pros: "First Time on Lufthansa and came away extremely impressed. I'm a million miler on Delta so I know a little about flying a mainline carrier. Lufthansa blew me away with the level of service and friendliness. It was a short (90 minute) flight but they still offered a free breakfast sandwich along with the beverages. Flight Attendants can switch from German to English without hesitation and were very professional. Look forward to flying with them again."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Pros: "Paid ~350 dollars to upgrade. It was great! More room, better service"
Pros: "Hope to make today's flight home! Time will tell."
Pros: "The entertainment was good on board"
Cons: "The cabin crew was a bit rude"
