Pros: "short hop--good"

Pros: "Great"

Cons: "More current movie selection would be nice."

Pros: "All meals provided were pretty bad. The premium economy seats are worth the extra money."

Pros: "Well taken care of"
Cons: "Seats are very close together in Economy"

Pros: "all"
Cons: "overall service"

Pros: "On the whole, classy service and comfortable The flight attendant who took the time to help me understand how customs would work"
Cons: "The flight attendant who said she'd get back to me when I had a question about connecting flights. Not only did she not get back to me, but with annoyance asked me hadn't I heard the captain's message on the loudspeaker. The captain had said to ask a flight attendant for further info, which is what I was trying to do."

Pros: "Comfortable, crew are very helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Food isn't that good"

Pros: "The amenities were a nice touch (headphones, blanket, pillow) and nice selection of current movies. The captain made timely announcements to update us where we were flying over and what our expected arrival time was in German and English."
Cons: "I was surprised that there were at least four dogs on the flight, some without a carrier. I didn't care for one of the meals which was mixed peppers with onions, cheese and potatoes. I thought the meals were overly salted but what airline's meal isn't."

Cons: "My video player did not work properly for the whole 11.5hrs of flight from Munich to LA. It was extremely tough to get it to play a movie. I am not blaming the crew, but their only suggestion was to restart it... Which I did... several times... but the player had a life of its own. Eventually I found a way to be able to get to a movie and get it to play, but it was not easy. I wish that there would be an extra player that could be provided as a replacement... Thank you."

Cons: "There was a 4.5 hr delay due to "technical difficulties". We had to switch planes. This caused me to miss my flight to Tucson out of LAX. When I asked them to help rebook my flight that Lufthansa caused ne to miss, i was told there is nothing they can do. Seeing as how that last flight was not booked through Lufthansa. This is absolutely ridiculous! There were no Lufthansa flights into Tucson so I had no choice but to go with another carrier! So after a long grueling 4.5 hr delay and 11+hr flight now I have to stay in a hotel because my flight out via Southwest was the last one out for the day and The only nonstop flight departs at 12:35 tomorrow. Thank goodness Southwest booked me on another flight at no charge! They take care of their customers. It was not their fault I missed the flight. It was dur to the "techincal difficulties" with Lufthansa. And every hotel within a 8 mile radius has been sold out. And at one point I booked online only to find out upon my arrival, after paying for taxi and havig him leave, thAt this hotel is sold out and should not have allowed me to book online. So after landing at 7:15 pm at LAX I am just now in bed at a hotel after searching and paying for cabs etc. And on my dime! Absolutely ridiculous !!"

Pros: "missed my connecting flight to hawaii, Lufthansa, put me up in a room and feed me, thank you. Plus got me on the next flight out."
Cons: "if I could have got off the plane quicker I maybe could have made my flight. took 20 minutes to de de board"

Pros: "Wrote my thoughts in the wrong section. See Milan to Frankfurt"

Cons: "I had ordered muslim meal but was served vegetarian (meatless) meal instead. Muslim meals can be served with halal beef,chicken, mutton or fish / seafood. Food served was substandard and tasteless."

Cons: "I started to get hungry between meals."

Pros: "The crew did their best to help several people whose seat requests were not honored including a woman traveling with a dog who was given an aisle instead of a window seat. Crew came around with water and juice frequently."
Cons: "Seat assignments were not honored. My husband and I were seated in two different rows even though we requested to sit together in an aisle and window seat and checked in the day before the flight This happened on all four legs of a trip to South Africa. Extremely narrow seats and little leg room. Felt like a cattle car. An aggressive woman with disruptive, screaming children was allowed to Torture passengers for a good five hours of the flight before the bursar finally moved her. This was after several hours of complaints from other passengers. She was eventually moved twice due to passenger complaints. The situation should have been handled after the first complaints which occurred two hours into the flight before the situation completely detiorated Food was terrible and meals ran out."

Cons: "Cramped seating in Economy"

Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "12 hour flights in general not the most comfortable."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive and took good care of everybody in general."
Cons: "On the way back from Munich the gluten free bread served was not edible! I would recommend to change it to something more appetizing. It's been used for way too many years! On the LA bound plane the GF bun was wonderful! Thank you though for caring to serve GF food! Not the most comfortable seats for your back in the economy class."

Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived on time. It would've been helpful if more announcements were translated to English."
Cons: "Everything went smoothly."

Cons: "the person sitting next to me, barefooted the whole flight with nasty toes"

Cons: "The window seats are not comfortable like in other planes. The windows are too high, you don't see anything. The seat is too far from the window so you cannot lean towards it. For a 10 hour flight it was not comfortable."

Pros: "Excellent crew & service; enjoyed the special meal selections and the great movie options."

Pros: "New plane has nice wider seat."
Cons: "Letter size on In-Flight-Entertainment is too small. Units looked more like a tablet and some function seems missing or hard to find. Passenger needed to put on the foam piece to the headset. Hard to do as I broke both when trying."

Pros: "everything else was fine"
Cons: "the bathroom smell. they should have at least a good smelling soap, like lemonsoap.... the pasta was too overcooked."

Pros: "Service was so wonderful - very attentive crew."

Pros: "Service with a smile. Great food. Great use of space for bathrooms away from passengers"

Pros: "Friendly staff, good beverage service, good movie selection. Lufthansa is my favorite airline to fly."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "The seats on my return fight were terrible! my knees were touching the seat in front of me. nehmen the person ahead leaned their seat back, I only had about 10" from my face to their seat. Terrible! Also difficult to watch a movie with the screen that close to your face; that's terrible on the eyes."

Pros: "Lufthansa flights was great as usual. Super Clean airplane, polite crew, entertainment selection was good, well functioning head rest design!"
Cons: "The western vegetarian/Vegan meal's texture, taste, and quality was astoundingly aweful. It was actually funny how bad the food was."

Pros: "The plane is nice and big, and clean. The flight attendanrs were very helpful, and friendly. My seat was very comfortable, with a lot of leg room."
Cons: "The flight took off over 30 minutes late (in both directions), and the food really was terrible. Most of it was over cooked, and unappetizing."

Pros: "IT WAS ALL PRETTY GOOD"
Cons: "THAT I WAS IN COACH BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO PAY FOR AN UPGRADE"

Pros: "Very friendly crew, prompt service, smooth flight, clean airplane and the inflight entertainment was nice too. Love the cams on the airplane, to see what's going on outside"
Cons: "The de-icing took some time but obviously it's for everybody's safety, but it did delay us, as well as the ownerless luggage that had to be removed from the airplane. I do appreciate LH making safety their priority"

Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "Twice the choice between chicken and pasta - more variety bumpy landing after pre boarding no announcement that now general boarding"

Pros: "Food was actually daily good"
Cons: "Flight was rerouted to drop off sick passengers. 10 hours after being served lunch and after the sick passengers had disembarked, there was little update on the flight status and no update on passengers getting dinner. The crew did not hand out water or snacks in the duration but instead ate and drank themselves in the crew area. If you wanted to eat or drink you had to interrupt them, and specifically ask to have a glass of water. If as a flight attendant you are hungry or thirsty after not having anything for so long, it's a good assumption the other 250+ passengers are also. Very inconsiderate."

Pros: "Air bus was amazing!"

Pros: "Cheap enough"

Cons: "I did not like that they printed my ticket for my connecting flight for EVA Air without any EVA Air markings. This meant that when I arrive at LAX I was giving directions to the United Airlines terminal when I really needed to be at the terminal for Eva Airlines. This caused me to almost missed my flight with Eva Airlines. For the remainder of my trip EVA airline staff were quite grumpy with me for being 45 minutes late boarding. I actually am thankful that I believe they held the plane that 45 minutes for me. It just seems too convenient that the plans out there that long after its scheduled takeoff."

Pros: "Friendly, attentive staff. Great seats with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "There is a reason why I stopped flying and this airline and now I remember why. I was not assigned a seat on the flight and checked int for a seat assignment at the gate. When I asked the boarding rep at the gate for an aisle seat, she lied and said there were none left but when I looked online, there were more than 25 available. This flight was awful, uncomfortable, the plane smelled like a geriatric center and was dirty."

Cons: "Service"

Pros: "The easiness of the airline to adapt to the fact that we will be going late and the swiftness in organize all the passengers in a way that no one will miss their connection flight"
Cons: "I had a child with me and I was sat in the row before the emergency exit, where the seats were rigid and my child was not able to sleep at all. Making it uncomftable to all around her."

Cons: "There should be some free tv"

Pros: "The way they said "Hello" to me. Other than that, the water was good."
Cons: "Everything else. My flight was delayed for weather, and I missed my boarding by 2 MINUTES, and they rejected me at the gate, and told me my seat was already taken by stand-by. Then the lady I went to see at the customer service desk was rude, and rejected me from first class even though it was THEIR MISTAKE I was booked there. Then I didn't even land at LAX! I had to take another flight that landed at Ontario so I can make my appointment on time. Will NEVER travel with United again!"
