Boarding process was not announced.
They did not have my food even though I had ordered earlier. Choice of movies was poor and very limited
Lufthansa boarding is certainly easier and organized, staff is courteous always. But they can offer better food and definitely better selection of movies onboard. Also, all airlines offer two baggage’s for an international trip except Lufthansa. That needs to be reconsidered. Overall, a good trip. Thanks!
They could not check me in through to my final destination, even though it was through a partner airline. We departed the first flight 1.5 hours late, which gave me 45 minutes to run around the connecting airport trying to figure out where and how to get my next ticket. Very unpleasant experience and do not want to fly with Lufthansa again.
Left with delay due to a passenger health state. Overall the flight was good, smooth with no hiccups. Food was ok with only one choice for the economy class which was disappointing but not unusual these days. Crew was amazing.
The usual mediocre coach experience
Pros: "Very polite and helpful crew. Nice selection of movies in-flight"
Cons: "Great experience."
Cons: "Very professional, helpful and friendly. Clean, great ride, smooth landing."
Pros: "International flights are always the best! You’re treated like you’re sitting in first class!"
Cons: "I packed a SOLID body butter that was brand new. I thought that because it was NOT a liquid but a SOLID it would be okay. Wrong! I took every precaution and even called prior to packing. I didn’t think this would be a problem. So, out it went! My SOLID deodorant was fine, though."
Cons: "Luggage was lost."
Pros: "Friendly service, actual food in economy class, just a small delay, overall a very smooth trip."
Cons: "As above, I couldn't check in online and thus couldn't choose my seat beforehand."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attent ive"
Cons: "Delay cause sings uS to miSs oUr fliGh? ENT.ert.ainmrt wasn't good eitHer and way to cramped even for coach on that long of a fligh"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Airbus was warm. There were no personal vents on the plan. Made for a very long and warm/hot flight. Other than that. The flight was good."
Pros: "Food, service pretty much everything"
Cons: "You lost my luggage !!"
Pros: "Everything! By far the best flight that I have ever been on!"
Cons: "All was fine. No complaints!"
Cons: "Packed flight. LH seats are narrow and the front porch is not extensible enough. Hard to place books and newspapers. Film selection so so."
Pros: "Good aircraft, great crew"
Cons: "Flight was 3hrs delayed due to late arrival of the aircraft"
Cons: "I didnt get my reserved seats, and the seats were not most comfortable compared toothed airlines."
Pros: "1. I like the plane and the comfort of my seat. 2. I was pleased to find my luggage in Athens as Lufthansa was the only airline that in the past twice had misplaced my luggage and had to wait for one day to get them. 3. The flight arrived at the scheduled time and going through the airport , security to my connection was especially easy. 4. The sandwiches also at the airport were tasty."
Cons: "1, It isn't really a 100% complaint because I'm also responsible. As I was waiting for the dinner to be served it took more time and I felt asleep watching a bad movie, so I missed dinner when I finally woke up. This is the reason I have no opinion about the food. My sole complaint is about the general practice in all airlines that they serve first the slim minority that does not eat meat. Democracy means that the majority should be served first. Unless the airlines consider the vegetarians as some kind of sick people! 2. The crew didn't offered us enough liquids during the flight and the excuse that they didn't wish to disturb our sleep is too lame."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "No language options on tv besides english."
Pros: "Roomy seats and good space between rows. Didn't have the feel of being on a cattle car like most flights in the US"
Cons: "Boarding process. Felt like a mad dash just to scan your boarding pass."
Pros: "The service and food was excellent"
Cons: "The seats are too close together like most airlines but for a long flight this is very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The lady at the check-in at the Atlanta airport was extremely nice and extremely helpful"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I had ordered a child meal but it was not available. Also they did not have a child pack for my son."
Pros: "Everything except the entertainment"
Cons: "The headphone jack didn't work. It priduced some sound, so it might fool a tchnician doing a quick check. But voices and most of the sound track garbled and muted."
Pros: "Boarding and departure+arrival times were excellent. Baggage was handled well, arrived without damage. Much better marks here than AirFrance."
Cons: "Food was quite poor, much worse than KLM or Delta... no match for AirFrance,thoug I'd rather get poor food and arrive on time and without getting stranded at CDG. Also, Neither on-board wifi, nor the entertainment touchscreen worked, not at all. You'd be well advised to bring your own iPad... :-))"
Pros: "Food was better than American or Delta."
Cons: "Had a screaming baby during the whole flight. Not Lufthansa's fault though."
Pros: "the gate crew didn't care if there was chaos. no interaction with waiting passengers beyond those that queued up with direct questions. i'd liken the experience to herding cattle. customer service skills haven't been taught to these folks yet. if i were basing my lufthansa experience on this alone, i'd go out of my way to fly another airline next time. on the other hand, the people staffing the flight were extremely kind, professional, pleasant, personable. a much improved experience. so much so that i mentioned it to a few people once i got home. this crew has received more training on how to provide excellent service than the gate folks in frankfurt."
Cons: "gate crew's attitude. it feels as though they are disdainful of the traveller. customer service matters. manage the boarding process. be nice about it."
Pros: "Surprised by so many entertainment options!"
Pros: "If you can afford to fly business class, it is definitely worth the extra money. The flight, the crew, the comfort we're superb!"

Cons: "Nothing. They were great."
Pros: "Staff was very professional, the plain was new and clean. Food and drinks were also good."
Pros: "Very professional, attentive, friendly flight attendants, clean aircraft (even the restrooms), surprisingly good food. I appreciate the complimentary wine, beer and after meal cordials. Boarding was quick, easy and on time."
Cons: "Economy seat room feels even smaller which, I guess, is to be expected. My husband is 6'2' and his knees touched the seat in front of him. When the person in front leans their seat back it is very claustrophobic. Over all an excellent flight though."
Pros: "On time, nice staff"
Pros: "The crew was quite nice and boarding at Philadelphia was organized."
Cons: "I was disappointed with the movie selections; there weren't many new offerings."
Pros: "The leg room was definitely more than on a US flight, which I gravely appreciated."

Pros: "service, food, entertainment"
Cons: "seats, boarding process"

Cons: "Rude check in lady who said I needed to check bag (but didn’t. Loads of space)"
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Having free snacks"
Pros: "Overall good flight"
Cons: "Free snacks and drinks"
Pros: "Free Wifi"
Cons: "Free Wifi all over the flight"
Pros: "There was a special needs boy that sat behind me and he had some issues (long flight, understandable) and the crew were AMAZING with him. Not everyone has common or even human decency. These people were rad, and it was lovely to see."
Cons: "Food was below average"
Pros: "Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The armrests did not fully extend, making the seat incredibly uncomfortable for my husband...the flight crew did not seem to care..."
Pros: "As always no issues at all, I reserved my seats early to get extra leg room which is always great. Fast boarding and a quick flight, having been on a long haul flight a few hours before I needed this to get home."
Pros: "We made very good time. Crew members were courteous and helpful. Check in was very easy. ."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and tight seating on the 787. No room to walk around on 7 + hour trip."
Pros: "Excellent crew and good food."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Food choices were not good-cold creme cheese tomato sandwich for breakfast and horrible curry chicken for dinner. Staff was young and seemed somewhat inexperienced. They were constantly rushing and couldn’t keep up with servicing customers. When we looked at a make steward to let him know that we were finished with our trays, his response was “give me a second!” Unacceptable customer service!!!"
Pros: "Landing and disembarking"
Cons: "Paying $275 to upgrade and experiencing one of worst flights and service I’ve travelled. No water supply for hot beverages, wash hands or brush teeth during eight hour international flight, not given special diet meal requested as crew unable to locate it, Entertainment monitor not working or housed in seat back correctly to adjust angle, remote handset buttons barely working to watch or make selections, unable to call cabin crew who did not visit through cabin for approximately two and half hours as ‘assumed most passengers were sleeping’, no wine choice only Sauvignon blanc and I wanted Chardonnay so had nothing. Breakfast ‘special diet request’ meal was cold hard bagel with colourful lump of cream cheese, which seemed to be what everyone else had. No orange juice, grapefruit that can’t take medication with, so had nothing to drink except allotted splash of water into small paper cup. Dreadful journey"
Cons: "Cancelled our flight and cost us a lot of money. Then Rebooked us through another carrier and we waited and they wouldn’t take us, said there was only two seats left and we would have to wait until the next evening for another carrier. Wow just terrible service. We drove five hours for this. I’m afraid British Airways is too big of a company and doesn’t really care!"
Pros: "The ride was very smooth! Pilot did a great job!"
Cons: "The leg room and ovearall size was very small. My husband couldn't fit his knees in ."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was quick and boarding was easy"
Cons: "Everything was for sale"
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly crew."
Cons: "Food and Entertainment"
Pros: "The flight attendants were polite and efficient. The flights were on time. Easy check-in."
Cons: "Our return trip was "cancelled"__ However, we were bumped and rescheduled to fly Sunday and given no options. So, the return flights definitely put a damper on our overall experience with flying BA. Hopefully, customer service will do the right thing in the end."
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac for to long...."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "We got delayed for 2h. Also,I traveled with BA before and I received an eye sleeping mask and a thooth brush, but this time those items were not provided. The blanket was smelling quite bad."
Pros: "Funny safety video."
Cons: "Lost baggage. Still waiting on update and location for property. Clerk at lost baggage desk was rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "Entertainment system worked well and had good selection of movies"
Cons: "Armrests didn't go up which is a problem with a toddler needing to sleep. Seat was broken so that pressure would make it lean back. Left over an hour late."

Cons: "Was one hour and 45 minutes late leaving Atlanta for London."
Pros: "Great plane - new and quiet"

Cons: "Cramped and no free tea/coffee"
Pros: "Was notified many times about flight delay, but was on time. Ground personnel very congenial!"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, food and coffee almost inedible! Layover in Heathrow nearly killed me after overnight flight (5 hrs. of chaotically organized airport). Unhelpful and unnecessarily officious personnel in Heathrow."
Pros: "Nothing. Zero. Zilch."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours due to a mechanical issue, per pilot before takeoff. SOMETHING happened & we were all tossed about the cabin of the plane. When it was all said & done, 1 flight attendant had a broken nose, 1 had a concussion, I hit my head in 2 spots, and a little boy hit his head & threw up. I am not a dramatic person, but I've never been on a plane & thought I was going to die – until this flight. Emergency landing in St. Louis instead of Chicago. The EMT crew on the ground? Felt like amateur hour. I have photos to back these events up."
Pros: "i love wverything"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "Father with two young daughters was presented at checkin with separated seats, so we had to request others to trade with us once we were on the plane. Which they happily did. I was not able to reserve seats online for some reason; therefore the staff at check in should know that they should try to reserve three seats together for a parent traveling with two pre-teen kids."
Pros: "Nothing special at al!"
Cons: "International flights never charge baggage fees for 2nd bag. Older aircraft. Mediacore friendly by the crew. They cancelled my return flight cost me lots of head aches and money!"
Pros: "Replacement flight was fine"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I was not automatically re-booked, luggage lost and not delivered despite repeated effort to reclaim it. Aer Lingus hold time on the phone was over an hour and attendants were unhelpful (said my flight wasn't cancelled in their system even though I received an email that it was - which ended up being true)"
Pros: "Reasonably efficient and comfortable."
Pros: "The flight crew worked really hard on this flight and it seemed like they had very few breaks or down time. The entertainment was great, it made my flight seem shorter than it really was."
Pros: "The friendly staff and the entertainment (movies) made my first international flight very enjoyable!"
Cons: "I paid $100 to sit my the person I was traveling with. I think that's overkill!"
Pros: "Check in staff was friendly, and flight attendants nice. Also liked not having to pay for the 2 servings of wine I had."
Cons: "Food was very average and was served really late, after midnight local time. Special order meals were delivered to people and then there was a long gap before everyone's else's was served. btrzkfast very ordinary, but tea was decent"
Pros: "crew attention and politeness"
Cons: "the food variety"
Pros: "I got this 'heap ti"kept from airfare.com and there was no difference to other passengers."
Pros: "The staff was polite and the entertainment was good. The seats were ok."
Cons: "It was too cold, even after throwing the blanket over me. The breakfast was disappointing, just a small granola bar to eat, more like a snack then bfast. They did not distribute the hot towels or wipes after waking us up."
Pros: "They blackmailed my daughter pay an additional $940.00 for a return flight bcus here flight was over 90 days."
Cons: "Purchase was allowed by Kayak and BA. This should not have taken place."
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "Food was okay"
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was great. Plane was good."
Cons: "In seat TV was barely operable."
Cons: "When I asked for a options, they never answered clearly."
Pros: "Crew was polite and professional, despite plane being absolutely packed."
Cons: "Food was really horrendous. Better off sticking with basics like frit, cheese, crackers, sandwiches, etc. If I pay extra for early seat selection, don't guilt me into switching with someone who didnt, because they didnt have enough leg room and had a bad leg. Situation was such that I couldnt refuse. So ended up paying extra for a really crappy seat. Seating chart should indicate where the metal boxes are that affect leg room in certain seats so those with a disability aren't seated there."
