Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "We were the only customers in business class, which was nice. Lots of attention from the crew, and food was good."
Cons: "Ummm, THAT was "business class"? Same seats as economy, with middle seat blocked off. Limited recline, no entertainment, no comfort seats. Nice meal, nice drinks, nice service...but I'm a little stunned that a European airline would call this kind of seating "business class". Only thing that separated it from economy class was a curtain, and middle seats blocked off."
Pros: "Seats were ok and crew was kind and professional. Food was terrible on all flights. They gave mayo or cheese or something I can’t figure out in a sandwich on multiple flights. That thing though slightly different was terrible every time. Also gates changes and pilot landed in wrong part of the airport for its-fra leg and we had to have passportA checked while exiting the plane and had to take a bus. My transit time was short but gladly made it"
Cons: "I missed my second leg from fra-ist. The gate was changed and I was given wrong directions by airport employees so I went through a very long and painful wait at a security line that I didn’t need to go through had the airport info employees knew what they were doing or saying. I ended up missing the flight because of repeated wrong directions"
Cons: "Istanbul to frankfurt flight had no entertainment, no charging usb ports n a small ham sandwitch for breakfast - this was a 4 hour early mirning international flight!!!"

Pros: "It was totally bad experience due to cancellations of the flights which I already booked to SJC airport in CA. The first confirmed Lufthansa flights No: LH 1305/ LH 488 ISTANBUL to SAN JOSE via FRANKFURT were cancelled. Then my family in USA contacted the airline and agreed about FLIGHT TK 005 / UA 1883: IST-ORD-SJC. At the checking counter in Atatürk Airport I got the last shock of being Lufthansa didn’t issue a ticket for the flight and the time was running fast and l had no contact neither with my family nor anybody else at the airport therefore i had to purchase a ticket to SFO via Frankfurt. In another word it was very bad experience."

Cons: "Frankfurt connecting flights are the worst"

Cons: "Notoriously, on several flights I have recently taken, my economy seats do not recline at all. On long distance flights this is very uncomfortable! And on this flight from Frankfurt to NYC, my bag was lost, making a claim at the Lufthansa baggage dept took a very long time and the clerk said little, explained nothing and seemed annoyed with my questions."

Pros: "great service and flight"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. I did not need to wait in line too much for use of restroom. The flight was on time."
Cons: "They had grabbed my carry-on luggage at the gate. I specifically told the gate agents that I put heirloom plates that used to belong to my mother in my carry-on. They assured me it would be handled properly. Well this promise turned out to be lie. The plates were broken. Even though they were wrapped. I am sad and angry. My carry-on was small and light. There was no reason that it should be singled out in the first place. Now what?"

Cons: "If the flight was longer I would not have minded I enjoy long haul on lufthansa"
Cons: "The food wasn't good. The beef goulash was chewy and a piece of gristle got caught berween my teeth which I had difficulty removing. For lunch I had a pizza margarita and nothing else. Something else like an ice cream cup would have been nice. I tried to check in a second bag online and was unable to do so. I paid $75 at the check in counter which is exhirbitant compared to other airlines. my brother paid $100 for a bag which was 9 pounds over the limit- that's outrageous!! The person at the check in counter had difficulty with the credit card machine and we waited over 20 minutes to resolve the issue."
Pros: "The coach seats were much more comfortable than Air Canada's. The flight was without incident. Staff were great! Accommodating, friendly and efficient!"

Cons: "We need to be reimbursed for our flights that THEY canceled."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Movie choices and breakfast (only carbs is a tough way to start a trip when traveling internationally)"
Pros: "The seat on the Boeing 787 is the best. Decent legroom."
Cons: "The crew was never friendly or very accommodating - like it was a chore. Some cultural thing ?"
Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"
Cons: "Very courteous"
Cons: "90 min check in is hardly acceptable and indeed nerve recking"

Pros: "I arrived safely to Detroit"
Cons: "There were so many women wanting to change their seat because they cannot sit next to a man . . . . There was a woman crying because she wanted to sit next to me and the flight attendant told her no and that she needs to go back to her assigned seat. If seats are available after boarding they will move her to another seat is what the flight attendant said. Alot of male passengers volunteered to move to accommodate the women that cannot sit next to a man. As a suggestion maybe while booking a ticket a passenger can select the option of sitting next to women or men only. My screen stopped working about an hour into the 12 hour flight. More options for food would be another suggestion."
Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "No coffee"
Pros: "Boarding was no frills and quick, service onboard the plane was an orange juice, however, it’s a 45 min flight and didn’t expect much else. No entertainment onboard."
Cons: "This grievance has to do with AMM airport. If you have a connecting flight, you will have to clear customs with your hand luggage and go to departures, you will have to go through security checks again and passport control, our connecting flight was 35 mins from arrival and we had to run to make it."
Cons: "The women's crew is always unfriendly especially when they know that you are Jordanian, and the food is small"
Pros: "Wide seats Excellent service"

Pros: "There was more leg room than I'm used to and I got to watch Lego Batman"
Cons: "Seats were declined during take off and landing. Kids were running around everywhere, one even jumping into my leg, and one, get this, was running around as we were landing. At no point did anyone say "hey, be a parent and keep your kids in check." The staff seemed kind of lazy and annoyed Just generally a mess of inconsiderate people and the crew not doing their job."
Pros: "Very short, only a half hour flight"
Cons: "nothing not to like"
Pros: "Staff and service was exelent"
Cons: "Flight attendants was a bit rude and not nice to passengers. They do not treat fairness to everyone and not cautious with their actions. I asked for water to one of the guy flight attendants and he did not come back."

Cons: "The aircraft is really old..."
Cons: "after one hour delays and half hour flight the rented aircraft had to fly back to the airport for technical issues , the next flight was seven hours later . During this time there was poor communication and terrible service. The inbound flight was also delayed for almost two hours and the same story of bad communication and worse service . I have been flying for a long time with RJ and I can say for certainty that its one of the worst airlines out there. I kept my hope all these years till I finally gave up. They will never improve or learn from their mistakes"

Cons: "No problems at all on this flight, they waited patiently for a few late arrivals and I am sure that for them it was greatly appreciated."
Pros: "Food was great. Service excellent. Plane was not full so there was plenty of space. We are not bothered by lack of alcohol during the day. Took off and landed pretty much on time."
Cons: "Entertainment system basically didn't work. The volume, even on maximum was impossible to hear. The selection of movies was also very limited."
Pros: "If you do have other alternatives its highly recommended that you do avoid flying on this airlines"
Cons: "Food is the worst thing you can ever imagine putting in your mouth. The seats are very bad，the space between rows are very little. If you're over 5` 10”，then it will be like a nightmare sitting at this flight."
Pros: "Everything was perfect! Food was great!"
Pros: "Food was pretty good. Crew dontt give you much of a choice though !!"

Pros: "New Aeroplane , flat bed , large screen , good size hand carry luggage size, large bathroom ."
Cons: "Somehow service is a bit " cold " , suggest to smile a bit and talk a bit, it helps a lot . Bringing the wine poured into the glass with the food tray is not appreciated because it diminishes the importance of the quality of wine , very important to show the bottle and the label ."
