Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Free wine!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed as we were waiting for documents required for our entry to the UK - surely these should have been ready in advance? Perhaps a taste of things to come if (when) we sadly leave the EU. Same poor sandwiches."
Pros: "Seats were spacious and they fed us on the flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "No major complaints."
Pros: "Crew was OK, seat was comfortable"
Cons: "No choice for food, for the last rows only pasta was left, bad calculation on crew side"
Pros: "The crew were super friendly. There was plenty of space and I slept for a few hours"
Pros: "Crew was nice. I will go again with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Lufthansa will always be my choice airline. Their staff are nicely dressed, accommodating and well mannered."
Cons: "On this trip back to Dublin, our flight from Munich to Dublin was delayed for over two hours. It would be nice for Lufthansa to at least offer the passengers something to eat or drink while on board waiting for such a long time."
Pros: "Really good food and personal service. Made me feel like I was in a restaurant."
Cons: "I tried to get onto an earlier flight for my transfer. They were not accommodating. Next time I'll consider a flexible fare."
Pros: "The crew again was great. The cheese sandwich was also excellent. I wasn't expecting a sandwich on a 2 hour flight and this was a welcome surprise."
Cons: "Boarding took a long time, but that was a product of having to bus everyone out to the plane for boarding. They also crammed way too many people onto the bus. Would have been more efficient to load quickly and go as another bus was already waiting."
Pros: "Check in was swift and efficient. Boarding was organised and flight attendants were friendly and efficient."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "I was allergic to ingredients in the in-flight meal. There were no additional options left by the time food got to me. The crew was indifferent about my allergy and seemed offended when I returned the food uneaten."

Pros: "Nice to be on a full service airline for once"

Pros: "Telling you you're stupid"
Cons: "getting too many emails about a flight that I've never took"

Pros: "Aircraft crew was decent."
Cons: "Seattle to Frankfurt aircraft was the dingiest and most crammed aircraft I have ever used on an international leg. The seats were tiny so much so that some other passengers were not able to fit in! The lighting was gloomy, restroom dirty within the first hour of the flight, no space to keep any magazine or books on the back rest of the seat in front of you, etc. Overall - such a bad experience. Not expected from Lufthansa, especially as I have had great experience with Lufthansa earlier."

Cons: "Will newer agan fly business with Lufthansa!! It's not business at all just regular econom seats with short leg room and casual service. They should be sorry for that kind of business!!"
Cons: "i reserve a chair and pay for them and they didnt get it and make me in last plain"
Cons: "Because of mechanical errors in our point of origin (NJ, USA) we were unable arrive on time in Germany to make this connecting flight. Very very disappointed in United Airlines. Will never travel with them again."

Cons: "Was not poker game :("
Pros: "NOT MUCH. LEFT, GOT THERE ON TIME. SMOOTH FLIGHT."
Cons: "SEATED, TREATED LIKE CATTLE. VERY UNCOMFORTABLE DUE TO NARROW SEATS. GAVE US TWO MIDDLE SEATS IN FOUR-SEAT CENTER. WANTED $35/EA TO PRESELECT SEATS, ONE-WAY. NEVER AGAIN IF I CAN HELP IT....."
Pros: "Professional and cheerful."
Cons: "Not a lot."
Pros: "The crew did really well in serving everyone. They were polite, helpful and on the go from the time we boarded until the time we landed."
Cons: "The greatest issue I have has to do with the state of Gatwick which is now under construction. Air conditioning was not available at our gate nor the seating area. We stood at our gate for a long time before being processed so that we could enter the seating area for the flight. We went from hot to hotter prior to boarding."
Cons: "A large airport with gates very far apart...connecting flights booked too closely together! I got to gate for next Lufthansa flight and was denied access"
Cons: "I will not fly on Air Canada again...Eventhough this is listed as a Lufthansa flight there was nothing Lufthansa about it. Terrible food. Overall miserable"
Cons: "Didn't take it"
Pros: "Crew crew crew. Great crew. Food Entertainment"
Cons: "Size of seats too small in economy Leg space narrow"
Pros: "Entertainment system very good ; crew very professional"
Cons: "Airline might have given warning of long long distance between connecting gates and need to undergo another security check. Also waiting area very cramped."
Pros: "Food good. Movies with variety."
Cons: "Had to change gates three times at Munich. Ridiculous. Wifi very poor in gate area"
Pros: "The flight was on time, staff attentive and made frequent rounds. The food was good and entertainment with a fair selection of options."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the day of my travel Lufthansa had a ongoing strike at the Frankfurt airport. The Lufthansa terminal was closed, luckily I was one of the few to get the bus shuttle. Once I arrived at the correct terminal the check in process and boarding was a pleasure, much friendly and competent staff to assist"
Pros: "Got to sit in the top deck of the A380; Luftansa sets aside a small portion of the top deck for economy passengers. Flight was much quieter for economy passengers than on any other plane I've ever flown because the top deck is further from the engines. It was an extraordinary flight."
Cons: "Food was OK, but nothing special."
Pros: "It was a nice, efficient flight"
Cons: "Guy at exchange should have said - All Lufthansa connections this way that way if a gate change had iccurred one didn't have to go thru security again..."
Pros: "service, food, entertainment"
Cons: "seats, boarding process"
Cons: "This flight had a lactose free meal but not gluten free."
Pros: "Check in staff were excellent Flight staff were also excellent Seating was fine for short flight"
Cons: "The boarding process was a little random but in the end worked out OK. Breakfast food was not great, but that's because I forgot to ask for a special meal and can't eat dairy."
Pros: "I was seated in an exit row and there were pillows and blankets made available to every passenger."
Cons: "The scheduling of the in flight events made no sense. The cabin was dimmed for take off (logical, given that it was a red-eye). However, once we were at altitude, the lights were put back on to serve dinner. Several people were woken up by this and it took like 1.5 hrs because its a big plane. Also, it was like 9-10pm local time by this point so dinner made no sense! Then the lights were dimmed and people tried to sleep. The lights were turned on 1.5 hrs prior to landing to serve a light breakfast. So, 6.5 hr red-eye turned into about 3.5 hrs of actual sleeping time. I would've preferred to be left alone and given a bigger breakfast."
Pros: "Was happy when I got off United Airline plane."
Cons: "It was not Lufthansas, it was a crappy, old run down United Airline jet. I do not like flying with United. Was kind of tricked into this one. I would have paid more not to fly United."
Cons: "staff in charge of luggage weight at the Muritala Muhhamed International Airport Lagos need retraining because their attitude may discourage passengers. My experience was so bad that when I needed to use the bathroom and the head of the staff at boarding told me the plane was boarding soon and I could not go. I found this very ridiculous"
Pros: "My checked bag made the connection even though I was stressed getting through the Munich flight transfer. I was really worried!"
Pros: "Great experience!"
Pros: "Flight crew was top notch"
Cons: "The boarding procédure in Dublin requires à long walks in 3 différent locations. Should be ma de shorter"
Pros: "Easy boarding, easy flight"
Cons: "Food served a little earlier, with beverages first. There was also buzzing in the headset when I was watching a movie."
Pros: "CRES was great"
Cons: "Many of us waited about 40 minute for our bags to show up in the reclaim area."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but overall not bad."
Cons: "I checked on Brussels and united about baggage rules and was very rudely surprised that I had to pay to check my luggage. And will have to on the way back. Has never happened before, pretty upset."
Pros: "I didn’t die in a plane crash."
Cons: "They missed the connecting flight the day before, so we had to fly out the next day on a flight that left ~1 hour late. I know the staff is doing what they can so I blame the execs making millions because they’re typically the real problem anyway."
Cons: "Plane left one hour late."
Pros: "The crew was awesome! Best flight I've ever had."
Pros: "Liked that they provided a blanket."
Cons: "The wifi entertainment did not function for the entire flight."

Cons: "Discomfort of small space"
Cons: "My economy plus seat wouldn’t recline!"
Cons: "We didn't fly here"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to take the flight due to illness. Called Just Fly and airline for help - was on hold for hours. Both refused to help me. I am now out of pocket over $700. Appalling customer service by both airline and agent. Planning to report to the Better Business Bureau and travel authorities."
Cons: "Landed in Canada to let off a "sick" passenger, sat there for hours and after the pilot made countless excuses, including needing to refuel, needing a new route, and needing to de-ice the plane, he finally announced that we're headed all the way back to Newark for some unknown reason. Worst flight ever. Couldn't be any less happy. F*** this airline. Will never use again. Ruined my vacation, thanks a lot."
Pros: "Wide body jet on a domestic route has a wider cabin."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, no PTV entertainment, you have to stream from the wi-fi using united app, but you have to pay for wifi to download it."
Pros: "Crew members were pleasant"
Cons: "Gate was changed to a gate much farther away. Flight was delayed for 4 different reasons all of which were unlikely. We left 4 hours late. On board the plane was freezing cold. I will NEVER fly United Airlines again."
Pros: "it was very punctual and easy to get around."
Pros: "flight was on time and the crew was friendly."
Pros: "I’m still in Lincoln every united flight other than those our of Chicago have been delayed by 5-7 hrs and or canceled it’s been the worst trip iv ever taken"
Cons: "I’m still in Lincoln every united flight other than those our of Chicago have been delayed by 5-7 hrs and or canceled it’s been the worst trip iv ever taken"

Pros: "Arriving in Dublin"
Cons: "Seat was cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Seat size in premium economy."
Cons: "Food and presentation were weak."
Pros: "An empty seat in the middle."
Cons: "The seat in front of me reclined further than all the rest and the new seats that United has installed are incredibly uncomfortBle especially for a long international flight!!"
Cons: "flight was 90 mins late."
Pros: "I liked that we arrived on time and that the entertainment actually worked properly."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that my husband and i had one option only and that was Indian vegan vegetarian dish. We were told that's all there was left. We gave back our tray. I don't mind going without food for a flight but my husband had surgery die to diverticulitis and can only eat certain food. The flight attendant said that she was going to check if there is anything left in first class but it took for ever and I become impatient as the light were turned off and people were getting ready to sleep. So I switch on the light and another flight attendant came by. I explained the situation but she came back with the same Indian vegetarian dish we turned away. After more frustration and explanation the Stewart came with the. Hi Ken version. I gave my husband my share and he was able to finally take his medication and eat the chicken with the bread. I only ate the ice cream and had a glass of wine. Later on the first flight attendant who served us the meal came with a couple of oranges and a bag of chips. Saying she got this from first class. I kept the oranges and gave her back the chips. Floghing with United is very disappointing to put it mildly."
Cons: "Over 4 hours of delays including on plane then everyone was kicked off. We waited more and they cancelled the whole flight and everyone had to scramble to get on anything available. I lost 28 hours of my vacation. They put us in a scary hotel in Chicago. I received a $200 voucher for further flights that doesn't even cover the cost of my unrefundable expenses such as car, hotel and tickets that were lost on my vacation."
Cons: "Kept delying the flight for a total of 5hours, and then sat on the runway for 1 hour before take off. Was the worst experience of flying by far. Will definitely go back to delta or American as they are more informative and nicer"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2.5 hours. Food at airport terminal specific to United ridiculously expensive, particularly for a family, e.g.. $8.50 for French fries, etc."
Pros: "This was the first United flight I've been on in 10 years that was not full."
Cons: "There is no way to turn off the screens on the seat backs, so they continue flashing the same thing over and over. I counted 690 times between Houston and Vancouver."
Pros: "We made it to Dublin..."
Cons: "Crew was terrible, grumpy and not welcoming. Boarding was terrible, 4 hours late. No compensation, little apology. Food was awful. Couldn't really tell what we were actually eating. Actually hated this flight."
Pros: "I loved the butternut squash pasta. I plan on making this recipe at home. The staff was also very pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "My seat was uncomfortable and the person in front of me kept reclining. I had very little space to try and make myself comfortable. I am 110lbs, so I can't imagine how a larger person would feel."
Cons: "For an international flight, there should be more amenities like charger etc."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "The plane was freezing. I needed to put on socks--really wished I had packed wool ones. The seats were cramped and mine did not recline."
Cons: "The crew kept coming around to give us snacks and drinks and "dinner". I thought we'd be left alone to sleep but we were not and the cabin lights were only off for about 2 hours on our 6 hour flight. It was an overnight flight so I assumed we would be able to just sleep but we were not."
Pros: "Flight crew in Dulles were very helpful in arranging for my daughter and I to sit together. Really appreciated their help."
Pros: "Some things about the flight were normal."
Cons: "Our incoming flight was late arriving at Dulles. We bolted from that flight to the gate for our connecting flight to GSP. Two of our party of six made it and got onboard telling staff we were coming. We arrived moments later - moments later! - but were denied access because they said we were a minute late. Our small plane was just outside the door with access door still open and staff going in and out. Next flight was 5 hours later. We asked to speak to a supervisor and that was ignored until we demanded attention. The supervisor came 1.5 hours after we were denied plane access. Customer concern was nonexistant on this day."
Pros: "Two meals, great staff, eventless flight"
Cons: "2+ Hour delay due to airplane issues limited space under isle seats for carry on bags"
Cons: "Getting rerouted to LAX. It would have been much less expensive to book a flight to LAX originally."
Pros: "We were tossed into the last row; I had no leg room and was constantly being bumped by people using the rest rooms. As a result it was a sleepless flight."
Pros: "After being in the air for 4 hours without being able to connect to listen to anything, a gentleman flight attendant came to ask if I needed help. He then tried a couple different tools to try to help me. Nothing ended up working, but I appreciated him trying."
Cons: "Before the flight took off, I mentioned to a female flight attendant that there seemed to be something in the headphone jack and would like some assistance. She said that it wasn't the time to assist me with that (which I can understand), but she never came back to try to help. Once in the air, another women recognized that I couldn't connect and said she would be back. I am not sure if she forgot or if sent the gentleman flight attendant to assist, I felt like I wasn't heard at all."
Cons: "For a trans-Atlantic flight this was a very small plane with very tight seats. The bathrooms smelled throughout the plane. Many seat back TVs didrn't function."
Pros: "Great boarding at ORD."
Cons: "My seat"
Cons: "PA unreadable, entertainment screen broken, special allergy safe meal lost, luggage didn't transfer to next plane and we actually had to drive back to airport and get it 25 hours later loosing time on our trip,staff apathetic to everything! Will NEVER fly United again!"
Cons: "Took 30 hours to get to our destination on a trip with two kids. Out of the dozen people who we dealt with, only two were somewhat competent. It was the first time in my life I felt unsafe with a major carrier. Consistent problems on flights with mechanical issues and consistently unable to fix them. Then they offered a whopping $125 credit after we paid $4,000 for tickets only to spend two nights on airplanes and on a plane. It was so terrible, I still can't believe it. Time will not ease our frustration and disbelief. Fly with them at your peril."
Pros: "The plane and crew functioned well. From a purely technical stand-point the flight was a success, though it was delayed at Newark because the maintenance dept. took a good half hour to 45 minutes in transmitting its clearance to the captain."
Cons: "A lot of people of all ages, shapes, sizes, and dispositions were crammed into a comparatively small space. It was close and stuffy, very little space to stretch or move about when that was allowed. I'm not tall, but in terms of body mass I'm thicker and wider than many folks, but not obese, and my body thermostat tends to run on the warm side. So the flight was a bit of a physical and mental ordeal for me. The entertainment might have been great had my headphone port been operational. A previous passenger broke off the plug in the hole and the flight staff didn't have a pair of pliers on board to pull it out. Consequently, I was unable to listen to the media in-flight. Also, I couldn't recline my seat because the fussy older woman who sat behind me complained when I did, which made it difficult to snooze."
