Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Seats were too cramped up, legroom was a problem. A device was under the seat was cramping the leg room. The entertainment selection was very very poor for a long flight."
Cons: "Better entertainment selection."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Luftansa cancelled my flight due to impending hurricane. Because of announced airport closure, I decided to go on August 31 on the only flight available which was Iceland air. I had to pay $4200 for the flight. My flight back to Orlando is on September 9 on Iceland air. How can you compensate me?"
Pros: "The crew were nice and the service very good. The layover was short."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost so we had to go back to the airport the day after. In economy class the Last 3 central rows or even more, have no carryon storage. We were stuck with our carryons for over 7 hours during the flight Montreal Munich. This is the case if you fly their new A350-390."
Pros: "The time between flights was good and the trip was very nice."
Cons: "Both trips were nice"
Pros: "Seating was good"
Cons: "Got a seat in the middle - was pretty annoyed with this."
Pros: "on time no hassle"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Pros: "Spacious and quiet aircraft, lots of legroom in certain exit row seats. Friendly cabin crew. Compared to the loud and bumpy ride on the Lufthansa 747, the A380 was way better."
Cons: "Moderate delays at each end—waiting for transfer passengers delayed our departure half an hour. We made up the time en route but then sat on the tarmac at LAX because the gate was occupied. I think my seat mates missed their connection. They broke the handle on my rollaboard (checked due to stingy cabin baggage allowance)."
Pros: "Smooth boarding."
Cons: "Plane packed to the hilt. Tough to find space for cabin luggage."
Pros: "Lufthansa is an efficient operation."
Cons: "1. The comfort in economy class was insulting and horrible. I am 6'3", 175lbs and was trapped in one uncompromisingly uncomfortable position for 8+ hours. Torture is a word that comes to mind. If I were a smaller sized person, 5'8" or less, perhaps this may be acceptable, but for anyone over 6'. forget it. You must pay loads extra to be given a respectable seat. I am hopeful that I don't develop a blood clot from this flight. This lack of room is a seriously dangerous situation for many people on long-distance flights. 2. The seat recline feature added further insult to the mix. Once airborne, the lady in the seat in front of me sent her seat into what was left of any personal space or legroom I had. The video screen on the setback in front of me was literally 6" from my face now. Several people who were also of taller size complained, one was so adamant about retaining his space that he fought verbally with the lady in front of him, and eventually a stewardess had to be called. My wife complained on my behalf, and was able to get the lady in front of me to reposition her seat, but eventually, I noticed it somehow found its way back to recline again. I know Lufthansa is not alone with this predicament, but something HAS TO BE DONE to fix this huge problem with air travel. 3. The food on the flight to Germany was way better than the return trip. The meal consisted of mushy carrots, greasy mashed potato-like side, and a piece of OK chicken smothered in 'Murican BBQ sauce. I was insulted. Lufthansa had been better than this in the past. Oh, and the dinner roll was so dry and crumbly, it could have been weeks old. The snack before landing was called pizza, but I wouldn't call it that It was a bunch of tasteless dough, a little bit of tomato like sauce and a smattering of cheese. I wish Lufthansa would stick to what they do best; German-influenced food. Be true to who you are. Most people I know love German food, and I always have looked forward to LH food selections. Not now."
Pros: "Good Service , and overall friendly crew"
Cons: "Automaten Check in / boarding Cards, is hard for some people and took really long . Extra help on these machines would be good"
Pros: "The fact that I could have upgraded to premium economy. The space available in economy."
Cons: "The length of the flight but it is what it is. I couldn't upgrade to premium economy before arriving at the airport because of this being a code share flight with Lufthansa."
Cons: "The crew change the seat with a new boarding pass without my permission . They are not professional at all"
Pros: "Flight staff, food, etc"
Cons: "Boarding process- see above."
Pros: "Nothing good to say"
Cons: "Expect to be delayed if it snows a bit in Munich. Delayed for more than 7 hours total. 3 of those on the plane in Munich. Horrible!"
Pros: "Flight and attention"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "Visa for India was not checked in Denver. Landed in Frankfurt and discovered that the visa was expired. Stuck in Frankfurt for 3 nights until new visa was issued. No babes the entire time I was in Germany. Arrived in Mumbai after paying the $350 US change fee and no bags. Bags finally arrived on Monday at 9AM Without clothes, toiletries and medications for 6 nights. Now I am delayed and will probably have to pay rebuke and fare change to extend my stay here."
Pros: "everything was great. Service and pilots are at the top level of the proffessionalism."
Pros: "People. Food."
Pros: "Slept through a meal and was given one when I woke up. Very friendly staff. Smooth flight and landing."
Cons: "Movie selection rather limited"
Cons: "Ease and concenience"
Pros: "Wine was good."
Cons: "Food was tasteless - of very questionable quality, too much sugar and fat, unhealthy. Space between seats very tight, very uncomfortable. Music sound poor"
Cons: "Being sick on the way back home from my Vacation!"
Pros: "Efficient and friendly checkin, good flight overall"
Cons: "RUDE male flight attendant, but the ladies were nice and helpful."
Pros: "No vegetatarion food on return flight"
Cons: "No vegetarian food on return flight from Frankfurt"
Pros: "Flight itself ok"
Cons: "Three gate changes. Finally herded us into a holding area to bus us 100 yards to the plane. After carefully having small children and special needs go first into holding it was a free for all to get to the bus."
Pros: "I specifically booked this flight for the 8 hr layover so I could go downtown Munchen. the Plane was 4 hrs late leaving Edinburgh!! what is there to like? nothing."
Cons: "regardless of the late takeoff from Edinburgh, your boarding procedures are like a 3rd world airport. the food was 1/3 of a sandwich. that's food? no entertainment on board of course. why do I pay $500 for such flights? I'll go Ryanair from now on!"
Pros: "The crew was great and loved the pre boarding with my children."
Cons: "That had to be the most uncomfortable flight to France I have been in. There was no leg room at all."
Pros: "Efficient and well-run operation. Professional and attentive flight crew."
Cons: "Extremely loud engine noise in Economy Cabin. Concern on impact on hearing during transatlatic flight. Crampt seating."
Pros: "Staff were fantastic!"
Cons: "No entertainment system for a 10 hour flight! Found out once we were in the boarding area via an announcement to download the Air Canada app to use their wifi entertainment. Or rent an iPad. Not cool! The elderly lady beside us didn't even own a phone. That's a long flight! And all my records indicated Lufthansa (run by AC) flight. So strange. No wonder people are not AC fans. Understandable to say the least."
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Full plane"
Pros: "Lufthansa Premium Economy is truly that unlike United's and American's which are a complete joke and rip off. The service was very good, the crew very nice, attentive and always smiling, the food was reasonably good, the seat comfort was close to business class with less space and no lie flat but going west is no big deal."
Cons: "I suggest Premium Economy passengers should be able to board right after Business class passengers."
Pros: "Though our flight was cancelled due to inclement weather in Boston, I cannot say enough about the ticketing agent at the Luftansa desk. she was so incredibly helpful in rearranging our flights to get us where we needed to be as soon as possible. She spent so much time with us and on the phone and was very patient."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Marginal legroom"
Pros: "Crew friendly, good food"
Cons: "Cramped seating, can't select seat until checkin without paying (only airline we were unable to select seat)"
Pros: "On time. Smooth flight. Crew was extremely nice and helpful. Food was better than expected for airplane food."
Cons: "My particular seat had an entertainment system that only had about half the movies of the other seats. I notified the attendant who told me that this is a known issue that affects a number of seats on the plane."
Cons: "Delay in boarding, delay in removing snow/ice, my seat was changed without notifying me (after i checked in on line the day before)"
Pros: "The food, the crew, the cleanness and the entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed by 30 minutes but they did not inform us of the delay so everyone stood in line the entire time."
Pros: "Liked the flight from Frankfurt to Chicago better when it comes to food and drinks. It was spaced out better and we were offered more drinks. It was very nice to have a seat changed when checking in at the airport without any problems or telling me to ask once on board."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable."
Pros: "Aircraft crew and operations were excellent."
Cons: "My original itinerary was booked with Airfare.com with a 93 minute layover at ORD, subsequently abbreviated to 40 minutes. Despite my repeated requests, neither Airfare.com nor United nor Lufthansa were willing to adjust my consequent itinerary to correct that conspicuous deficiency. Instead, both United and Lufthansa representatives repeatedly assured me that the 40 minute connection would present no problem; and Airfare.com tried to extract a 33% premium on its original sale to make any such adjustment. As it turned out, my apprehensions were realized when boarding and tarmac delays at SFO consumed the entire layover, and a subsequent gate delay at ORD frustrated the commendable efforts of the flight crew to facilitate the de-boarding of passengers with close connections. Contrary to United and Lufthansa's explicit reassurances, the long run halfway down one concourse and all the way back up a second left me four minutes short of the gate closure. You guys need to get your act together. If either airline chooses to finance its operations by selling tickets to an "aggregator", such a business practice should not relieve the airline of its obligation to provide reliable service to its ultimate customer, the flyer. I am currently working to identify an appropriate regulatory agency to whom to report this cynical misrepresentation of services and the patently corrupt business model upon which it is based."
Cons: "Didn't take it"
Pros: "On time and highly efficient as you would expect from the Germans. Airplane was clean and nice. Airport and boarding was very good too."
Cons: "Food left much to be desired but not horrible. They said they were short on crew staff (weird - first time I've heard of it) so service was a little slower than usual but not bad. Seats continue to get smaller and thinner which means less comfort for such a long haul flight. The seating arrangement is probably worst at this airline. I booked our seats and paid extra ahead of time, come to find out they changed the seat configuration and our seats sucked so we paid extra for nothing. Lufthansa really needs to fix the seat selection situation."
Pros: "The service was great. Attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats in Business class could be more comfortable. The padding in the seats was very hard"
Pros: "I love Lufthansa! It's my preferred carrier!"
Pros: "Short and Smooth Flight"
Pros: "The flight attendant was helpful in confirming that my connection gate was C14."
Cons: "I only had 45 minutes between my Washington DC flight and my flight to Frankfurt and the flight to DC was delayed by a few minutes. Because the carry-on baggage had to be checked it took extra time to get my bag after the plane landed and my connecting gate was in terminal C (I arrived at terminal A), so I barely had enough time to get there, even when walking at full speed and not stopping once along the way. This was too short of a time between the two flights."
Pros: "All expected for the economy class.great enterntaiment"
Cons: "Seats a bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "We arrived nearly on time & without issue."
Cons: "The plane was warm & no cool air was being dispersed in the cabin & because of that it was very dry. Better temperature regulation, climate control is needed to make fir a more comfortable flight."
Cons: "If flights was on time I would not have to miss connecting flight in Dulles I had to stay for 22 hours in Indianapolis to be rerouted"
Cons: "The WiFi did not work the entire flight (4 hours from Chicago to Seattle) and despite passengers inquiring multiple times, we were never informed whether to expect it to start working or not. Streaming TV was also poor quality on the United app."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I have no complaints!"
Pros: "Crew amazing, smooth flight and on-time"
Cons: "Legroom and the fact that there is even s lower version of economy now! Yikes"
Pros: "On time. Courteous and friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "A bit of turbulence at the beginning of the flight and the captain didn’t release the seatbelt sign for longer than I could! Sprint to the bathroom the minute the sign was released. Hallelujah!!"
Pros: "On time departure & arrival"
Pros: "Pleasant flight crew and comfy seats, even in coach."
Cons: "The plane did not have screens at the seats for an 8 hour flight. The Wifi app to watch films worked on and off. The crew weren’t the friendliest. The seats barely reclined. Would not recommend this flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice. The flight, though a bit rough was uneventful."
Cons: "Legroom was a bit cramped. When we landed at Newark, it was very difficult to find out which luggage carousal we were on. There was no one there directing things and we were misinformed several times."
Pros: "They did allow myself and children to board earlier 5/4."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth enough"
Cons: "I'm a disabled person, I need an aisle seat for my long legs and busted knees, but the aisle seats had about 1/3 the space for feet as the other seats. My knees were pushing into the seat in front of me. Drinks went around once about 1 hour in to the 5 hour flight, but not again after that, though they came by to collect trash 5 times. Flight crew were polite, but some clearly didn't want to be there. This is the first flight I've ever been on where I was in tears from pain, and i felt like i couldnt ask for water or even the wheelchair I needed after the flight."
Pros: "Legitimately, nothing was liked."
Cons: "My plane broke, worked multiple mechanicals, returned to the gate, my severely delayed departure caused all my connections to be missed thus creating more compounded issues. HUGE HUGE headache. Almost forgot, I'm still missing my luggage 2 whole days later."
Pros: "The space on the plane, we left on timeand arrived early and I was able to sit by myself."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses spoke very harshly to me. I felt very embarrassed and offended."
Pros: "At least UA rebooked me next day no charge."
Cons: "Had to cancel trip until next day due to initial flight so delayed I would have missed connection in Denver. Since UA claimed was weather related, I woulda been responsible for hotel."
Cons: "The delay!!!"
Cons: "Cancelled the flight two hours before departure. Weren't apologetic."
Cons: "Had to pay for entertainment. This was my 50th flight this year and first time any airline has no free entertainment. Probably will boycott united on future flights"
Pros: "Staff was nice and accommodating. Plane ride was smooth."
Cons: "DELAYS. I had 4 flights within a weekend all with United and EVERY flight was delayed. The plane also heading to Newark ahead of us was overbooked and some people were pushed onto our plane, not a big deal if all can fit on the plane...but we wouldn't have if it wasn't for the delay causing those flying to Boston to miss their flights. Frustrating and adds an element of concern when faced with delays when the weather is fine. The internet on the plane is also confusing to use...should be clearer. Mistakenly booked my flight before realizing the new carry on policy, so trying to pack everything into a tiny bag to meet requirements was frustrating... definitely don't think I will be booking United again."
Pros: "Polite and friendly staff."
Pros: "lots of good movie choices"
Cons: "touch screens didn't always work easily"
Pros: "I overslept my flight and United was able to find the next available flight into Denver which helped me tremendously. The guy on the phone was very pleasant and helped so much."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and hard to understand. Flight was delayed because of paperwork that wasn't signed, which caused me to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "There is no food essentially. No entertainment unless you have your own electronic hand-held device."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "The plane wasn't very clean. And I might have liked another option besides a weird trail mix for a snack."
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The aircraft was super HOT and the seats were smaller than any plane i have ever been on. there was zero leg room available."
Cons: "Seats are too close."
Pros: "The Embraer ERJ-170 has comfortable seats!"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Courteous crew and smooth flight for the most part"
Cons: "The seats in were the most cramped I've ever experienced even for economy"
Cons: "There was a delay with the flight. I wish there had been earlier communication about what was going on, i.e. Why it was delayed, how long will the delay be."
Pros: "The crew were very accommodating and polite. They made the trip very pleasant."
Cons: "There were flies on the plane on our return trip."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and spacious place were awesome :) The snack was very good, the best I had so far while flying. Service was great :)"
Cons: "I didn't like that because I was 4th group to get in the plane, all the space above my seat was full and I had to go put my carry-on quite further down. It didn't cause me any problem because my connection flight had a long layover, but if had not been, I could have been late."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive. The captain was informative and constantly keeping the passengers updates. The chicken I had was good :) overall I had a good experience."
Pros: "I was very nervous, but the flight attendant made me feel at ease."
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "Old plane- lots of noises/raddles. Flight attendant not especially friendly, but that's ok? Wish United went direct from Louisville to Ft Myers. Need to add trip to Frequent Flyer Account"
Cons: "Held up at check in because of understaffing. Long TSA line. When we finally got to gate wouldn't let us board. Then agent was extremely rude about putting us on a different flight. Have always flown Delta and am sorry I ever strayed. It will never happen again."
Pros: "service was great"
Pros: "Friendly crew, boarding was pretty efficient"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks on the flight from Austin to Los Angelss. Entertainment was non existent unless you paid for wifi, even then you can't stream videos and no TVs at all"
Cons: "Agent at the counter didn't look into my passport properly so when I landed in Dfw they rejected so I couldn't fly international so I had to buy another ticket and fly back to denver. Cost me my time and money which I could have avoided only if your ticket agent checked my passport properly knowing about my international flight. Very disappointed."
Cons: "There was no air circulating on the plane the entire flight. The plane was over 90 degrees when we got on. Everyone on the flight asked for the air to be on and we were told it was. No air was coming out of the vents. Horrible flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "A lot of turbulence for the 1st hour of flight"
Pros: "The piolets and staff were kimd"
Cons: "The airline kept delaying and canceling the flights with little to no notification, resulting in people missing work, connecting flights, and other important situations. there weren't many employees working at the airport to assist the people who were in unfortunate situations involving the flight, including myself. Overall it was a poor experience flying with United airlines, but that won't stop me from future planning."
Pros: "we got there safely despite quite a bi of turbulance"
Cons: "turbulance and it took soooo long for the gate check luggage to be brought to us, several of us almost or did miss their connections. that was the first time it took soooo long."
Pros: "It was a pleasant surprise to find out I had a choice of movies to watch on my iPhone. Be sure to install the United Airlines App so that you can take advantage of this service."
Cons: "We were among the last 10 people to board and with the small plane size we had to gate check bags, but not a big deal."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "If you can tell that overhead storage space is going to be full so much as to pass out the green tags to check at the gate, why not just insist upon it? Instead of making me walk all the way to the back of the airplane and then having to walk all the way back to the front with the bag. Not everyone is familiar with all of your procedures without any explanation for them."
Cons: "WIFI was not working"
