Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The ife screen was extremely slow and unresponsive."
Cons: "Agent changed our flight to Munich and sent as a email with with confirmation on July 10. involuntary. On July 20. I checked Lufthansa app and found that only flight that was shown was flight Toronto-Thunder Bay. After 3 hours of phoning I found that flight from Munich to Toronto wasn’t available for date that was given us in email. Only option was day earlier or later. Left us to take day earlier and we could not changed last flight( Toronto- Thunder Bay). We had to come on Aug 22. and stay in Toronto for 27 hours and than take a flight to Thunder Bay on Aug 23. We lost a day of our vacation, had to stay at hotel. Not good experience at all. We still don’t know whom to complain about that."
Cons: "Flight delays were unimaginable"
Cons: "Space is limited even for a small built person. Too crowded considering long the travel time"
Cons: "The workers at Lufthansa can learn to communicate with one another so that people don’t miss their flights. First flight stayed on the runway for an hour with no explanation for the delay. This caused us to miss our connecting flight, which clearly could have been avoided. Pathetic professionalism."
Pros: "Seats had lots of space and entertainment systems had large, clear screens."
Cons: "Person sitting next to me was watching video on their phone without headphones. Also reeked of cigarettes. Had to move my seat."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."

Pros: "Safe trip. Announcer had a radio voice."
Cons: "Food was horrible. Service was scarce. Bathrooms were not the cleanest. Snacks were scarce and not appropriate. The tv screens were not too user friendly and programs would skip while showings."
Cons: "Missed this flight because my first flight was a cancelled flight, missed intercontinental connecting flight."
Cons: "Too warm"
Pros: "impressed with the food and service of the crew"

Pros: "Everything was good! I didn’t have any problems with that flight!!!"
Pros: "Service was exceptional and prompt"
Pros: "Lufthansa did well with handling a very difficult situation with courtesy, attention, and offering of amenities."
Cons: "Through no fault of Lufthansa, because of problems at JFK, our flight was turned around and returned to Munich after two hours of travel."
Pros: "Great crew, polite and helpful. Pillow and blanket were a nice touch. Will use them again!!"
Cons: "The food isn't that great though it wasn't horrible. Plane was extremely warm both to me and some seated around me."
Pros: "Food was good. We were served well and often"
Cons: "Bumpy ride. Design of aircraft had all the restrooms clustered in the same spot leading to long queues forming. Headsets were of poor quality, couldn't hear the movie dialogue well at all."
Pros: "The crew - seemed very amenable and pleasant on this flight. One helped me move to effectively solve the acute posture problem."
Cons: "The seat - window by request, but it was in front of an emergency exit The seat - is jammed in - very tight - could not put it back to relax, and could not relax my left side by the window. My left shoulder and arm and left hip started hurting - couldn't sleep - took 2 days to get rid of the numbness in my arm. I asked to move, and it became obvious that there were many empty seats in the next section behind. I moved, and my comfort improved. Why was I given such a posture killer - especially on such a very long flight with seats to spare?"
Pros: "The crew and the service was very good."
Cons: "The place I was given was against a wall and I could not recline the seat back fully. The price for one way was the same as a return ticket, so I did not understand why I was "punished" with such choice of a seat."
Pros: "During this flight, the attendants were suprisingly kind."
Cons: "Entertainment was just too poor(movie selection was just counted numbers.) the seat comfort was one of the ugliest, I think. even though they prepared many of premium seats, still once you compare with other airlines, it is far below than the average I think."
Pros: "The snacks were nice."
Cons: "We were delayed over 30 minutes and we did not get an update until like 20 minutes of sitting in the gate, which made me almost miss my connecting flight to New York. I also think that in the Barcelona airport there should be just a line to drop off the luggage since there is a self check out machine. It doesn't make sense to do the self check out and still get on the regular check out line to drop off the luggage."
Pros: "The flight was canceled!!!!!!!! It was late night and the was. I explanation given to cancellation !!!"
Pros: "Timing, entertainment options."
Cons: "Unability to check in with 2nd passport instead of visa. Also, No sits selection available if you have 2 passports to travel. Baggage was lost."
Cons: "Meals served in the 2nd flight wasnt up to the mark."
Cons: "No checjed in luggage allowed - i did not know that when i bought it!"
Pros: "Plenty of room"
Cons: "Lack of good movies"
Pros: "The energetic crew who served with a smile"
Cons: "The tea was not strong and was served lukewarm and movies not up to standard.how about new blankets...and food only a choice between 2...chicken or pasta..why not beef or mutton?"
Pros: "This flight was handled professionally and things went very smoothly. I don't have any complaints."
Pros: "On time, nice staff"
Pros: "Clean large toilets. enough of them so you need not wait. toilet area large so you can walk around. Crew friendly and always anticipating our needs. I liked the hot towels handed out twice during flight. Also the 2 delicious hot meals and snack. The captain didn't turn on seat belt sign at all; others turn it on after 3 or 4 seconds of slight turbulence and leave it on for the next 30 minutes even when it is smooth after that."
Pros: "Food & Entertainment were OK"
Cons: "My seat was 32C , me being disabled (wheelchair). My wife seat was 32 A and was DEFECTIVE. It could not be lowered towards the back, actually it has only the fixed position (all the way up). The lady from the seat before my wife's (31A) was lowering her seat ALL THE WAY. my wife protested, the crew tried unsuccessfully to adjust my wife's seat. Finally, instead of considering my condition and relocating us to some other seats (there were several free on this flight), the crew's lead stewardess (Friederich ?- I could not read the label, she kept it under her jacket) decided to upgrade that couple seats by moving them into the Business Class."
Cons: "Economy plus seats were a disappointment. Instead if the bottom cushion sliding out as with the Boeing 777, the seats recline too much. Uncomfortable getting in and out of our seats. Also, there are not enough restrooms. Lines of 5-7 people were common. I will not fly the A380 again."
Pros: "Everything was efficient and the somewhat long flight was easy because of food and entertainment. (Saw a really good Japanese film with subtitles)"
Cons: "Incorrect gate given for this flight, connecting flight was a little late. Everything was fairly quickly corrected."
Cons: "wheel chair crew ignored us during boarding. my mother had to walk to the gate which was very difficult"
Pros: "Everything was fine on this flight."
Cons: "The connecting flight had MUTLIPLE issues!!!"
Pros: "Great crew, food was good, smooth flight, enough leg room."
Pros: "30 minutes late boarding; food quite simple; entertainmentsystem very faulty"
Pros: "fllight attandants were very pleasant"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and pleasant crew"
Cons: "It was a short flight so no food was given out."
Pros: "Seats had extra legroom which was very nice."
Cons: "Screens were on by default and hard to figure out how to turn off. Ads are very annoying."
Cons: "The Newark airport is a swamp of unpleasant facilities and personnel."
Pros: "Considering this was a 10 hour flight, I thought the plane was comfortable with decent leg room in economy class. We were served two hot meals, both of which were very good. There was also complimentary wine, beer, and spirits on board. It's been a while since I've flown overseas and was impressed with the wide array of available movies and in-flight entertainment. The crew was great and very attentive."
Cons: "It was the most chaotic boarding process I have ever seen. They had us at a gate with seats for about 50 people so people were crowded into the walkway area of the terminal. The announcements were very hard to hear if you weren't right by the person making them. There was no orderly boarding. Instead, there was a mad rush for those that weren't elite status of some sort to begin boarding."
