Pros: "The crew was o.k."
Pros: "The crew was polite and did their best"

Pros: "The Lufthansa service in rebooking."
Cons: "Lost bag- this was after my luggage tag was scanned and I was assured the bag was on the plane. Getting information from Lufthansa about bag status was impossible. Help phones were either busy or never answered. A black hole of no information until the bag arrived 30 hours later. Then a 45 min. At airport to get it back."

Pros: "Staff was very responsive and quick to disperse food and beverages."
Cons: "I didn't care for the breakfast. The eggs tasted like the chicken and rice from the meal for dinner."
Cons: "It made us miss our fly due to Lufthansa use stroller stairs for passengers to get off the airplane instead as I had my 89 years old mother who needed wheel chair assistance which did not have during that time. And, with my heavy carry on luggage, plus my under seat luggage that I had to hold my old mother that I had to walk to the bus With pretty good distance that took us to another 10 minutes terminal drive. By the time we got to the connection gate to Berlin, the plane already rolled out to the runway. Now, they have to send us to the next fly, which was at another different gate. Overall, this trip made me very disappointed and horrible."
Pros: "Breakfast food was fantastic. Staff was helpful, anticipatory, and thoughtfully accommodating."
Cons: "No access to usb power outlets."
Cons: "It didn't happen"
Pros: "Needed to cancel trip - had insurance I thought was good"
Cons: "it sucked !!!!!! someone had to die before they covered cancellation"
Cons: "We flew economy so didn’t expect much, but these seats were VERY narrow. I usually will tuck my legs up on the seat to sleep. No way, this seat was simply hip width. No room to shift from side to side."
Pros: "See above. The same applies."
Cons: "See above. The same applies."
Pros: "I'm more used to travelling on Ryanair routs so it was a most welcome suprise to experience lufthansa. I went out and back with ye and even though there was a small delay going out I made concections easily. Well done to all your team . Thanks. I will definitely use lufthansa whenever can."
Pros: "Loved everything except upcharge for ski bag (no charge on Swiss air for this service) - 1st meal excellent.....2nd light snack (chicken sandwich) not really a home run (sorry.....) - overall excellent experience"
Pros: "Check in, crew and food"
Cons: "Over than one hour to board only one security lane was open and no enough trays for check our stuff"
Pros: "The wellcoming on board."
Cons: "The Long bus drive from the Airport building to the aitcraft."
Pros: "Excellent crew-seats were decent-not as good as Emirates., but doable. Seats from Frankfurt to Bengaluru in India were smaller than US domestic airlines-a feat thought unachieveable!!"
Cons: "Food was terrible-choice for dinner was Salmon or pasta with tomato sauce! Obviously picked the salmon which was sitting on a bed of soggy rice and a dinner roll that was so cold, I could cool my drink with! It was also hard enough to use for self-defense. The entertainment system was so bad, the kid behind me was punching the screen!! It took me 5 minutes to wait for the screen to respond and it was not much larger than my phone. Again, miss Emirates-this will be my last flight on Lufthansa!!!"
Pros: "Lufthansa makes coach travel tolerable. Blankets, pillows, free access to on board entertainment and a large selection of real food, not just snacks, and beverages. All beverages available the entire flight. Plane was clean and everything in working order."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "They did offer an extra snack and drinks for the delay... but still..."
Cons: "3 hour delay on tarmac, on a 9 hour flight already... not fun."
Cons: "Got delayed from atl to wash. And my flight from wash to munich left."
Pros: "Interesting the bathroom downstairs...then asking people to not form lines on the stairs makes the process a little more complicated...if a person has mobility problems, which restroom should they use?"
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing. Lack of clear signs and announcements didn't help to form lines. People just went to the gates after families, handicapped, vets, etc..passed the gates, business and first. Improving that process by forming ordered lines would help. Entertainment presented movies that are old and have been dysplayed on flights for years. Entertainment in general is poor. Seating not as expected! I chose my seat online and once on the plane I found out the organization of the seats was different than the one displlayed online. I chose an aisle sea on a 3 seat row and I ended up on a 4 seat row and squeezed in between two other passengers. The seats are "growing" smaller and smaller, and the shape and mobility of the chairs makes them uncomfortable. On my row there were 3 screens installed on the ahead seats, and my screen was by 3/4 in front of the passenger on my right. That made difficult controlling the screen function with me stretching my harm over the other passenger's face. I payed $2,000 for that flight in economy. $2,000 for an economy class is not cheap! And you don't offer a great experience. Either lower the price or improve the overall experience."
Cons: "for 3 years, 90% of my flights from Beijing were delayed or cancelled. Beijing International Airport is the worst airport ever. About my flight from Beijing to Munich this time, we were stranded on the runway INSIDE the plane for 5 hours w/o food and water for the first 4 hours!"
Cons: "The delay after boarding in Lisbon"
Pros: "Plane was clean and service was great."
Pros: "It was so much better in all ways from the United flight we had from Newark, NJ to Milano."
Cons: "It was IMPOSSIBLE to check in 'on-line' at my cousins the day before or even that morning. We wasted an enormous amount of time trying to do that, rather than walking & talking & enjoying each others company, the first time we've seen each other in 12 yrs."
Pros: "WiFi, entertainment and USB charging was good."
Cons: "Felt herded like cattle during the boarding process. No children's amenities as advertised. Children's meal was so-so. Adult meals had chocolate included, which children's meal did not have. Seriously?! The snack provided was all inclusive for adults and children and was way too spicy for my 6-year-old."
Cons: "At the luggage claim the flight crew collected their baggage first then the passengers. My last bag didn't appear for 40 minutes after the flight crew departed."
Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled our return flight from Rome two days ahead of departure. Spent the whole day trying to contact them by calling from Rome on American phone which ended up costing over $100, eight times the.l hold was over an hour after which Lufthansa just hanged up. Here is German "reliability, responsibility, and organization" in action!"
Cons: "They ran out of one of the meal options and then one of the meals later had sauerkraut which the smell of in the plane was overwhelming and made me feel unwell."
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: "Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,"
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."

Pros: "The crew!!"
Pros: "They considered my reguest of vegiterian food."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."
Pros: "Everything was clean and well organized."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours."

Cons: "That it didn’t happen."
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam.

Cons: "Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board."
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."

Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"

Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay.

Cons: "Landing quite rough."
Cons: "We had an 8 hour layover due to missing our connection."
Pros: "Uncomfortable plane."
Cons: "When we boarded in Reykjavik al was fine until the pilot announced that the bag sorting machinery was malfunctioning. We were told we'd be delayed while 18 bags were found and sorted by hand. Then it was 14. And an hour later, we left. Apparently it was still five. That is how many of us were still waiting at the carousel when all the bags had come off. I suspect Iceland Air decided that was an acceptable number and sent us on knowing that they hadn't found all the bags. I did eventually get my bag... six days later and after quite a few unanswered messages. That is partly because Iceland subcontracts list bag service to a company called THS, which again subcontracts delivery to a company called APC. All of these appear allergic to caulking US numbers. Iceland Air for the win."

Cons: "Arrived 10 hours late, lost luggage."
