Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was astounding"
Cons: "This airline charges for everything, and after you pay once, they try to charge you again, and again, and again (four different people tried to charge me 4 different times for my two checked bags). And they lost the record of my payment, so I had to show 4 times the Amex receipt showing that I had paid before. It took 45 minutes and 4 non receptive agents for me to get my luggage checked. British Airways is significantly better."
Pros: "Crew were very good."
Cons: "No vegan food available."
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Pros: "Cops is always a good reason to flight"
Cons: "They always change the gates, also too many disorders in the gate previous the boarding process, the process it is not clean. They took hand baggage aleatory to send to down and do not ask if we have fragile stuffs there."
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Awoke to find ill man laying on floor in aisle next to me with oxygen. Shortly after... Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby. Nevdr informed what was happening, never offered to move our seats or move iIl passengers. Glad all turned out ok. Could have given them more privacy and better informed other passengers."

Pros: "Air france crew at Mumbai Airport very rude and not supportive during checkin"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Food was good and tasty."

Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "One of the engine was smoking just as we took off. This should have been checked beforehand that it was working correctly. The pilot missed the first landing, was going too fast and had to turn around. We circled the London eye 3 times. When we were actually landing it was extremely bumpy and on the way down the plane was tilting back and forth a lot. They were going too fast when we landed as well, I have never been in a plane that has landed so poorly, and I have travelled a lot and used many different airlines. It was worse than any budget airline I've been on. As we were driving back to the terminal, the pilot stopped short for some reason. Things were not explained clearly. I will not be flying with airfrance again and will be sure to spread the word of this awful experience."

Cons: "Better communication and more help from stewardess on stowing carry on luggage overhead. Seat comfort was bad."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Horrible service at Newark. Delta and Airport staff directed me to A terminal with my luggage. Waited in line for 1 hr only to be asked to go back and send my checked luggage then go back in the same line for another 20 minutes. Utter disregard to customers. Very rude staff."
Cons: "I can’t understand how airlines charge for the first checked bag in an international flight. I’ve traveled for more than 20 years and this is the first time I have to pay for that. I’m surprised they didn’t charge me for the oxygen I used"
Pros: "United is terrible as usual. Dirty planes, poor service."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. Food was average, horrible beer, limited soft drinks. No entertainment screens and only 3 charging outlets per 4 seats in row. Typical United."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the food was good."
Cons: "Entertainment could have been better. Normally on a flight of this duration I would expect that there would be movie screens in the back of the seats that you could view a selection of movies to help pass the time. This would especially been helpful on the trip home where the flight left at 11:30 am"
Cons: "Crew was rude"
Pros: "All flights were on time or early and luggage made it to final destination with me."
Cons: "Wish they had another snack option besides just pretzels."

Pros: "Great movies."
Cons: "Not enough food for 8.5 hours!!"
Cons: "There is an insulation issue in the wall next to 35F...Wall was covered in ice cold condensation."
Pros: "The boarding and seating happened in a timely fashion, and the crew was courteous. The lunch meal (I had requested Asian vegetarian) wasn't amazing, but not as bad as it could've been."
Cons: "The flight was not with Lufthansa, but it was actually through United, which was extremely confusing as I did my ticket confirmation, seat booking and meal choice through Lufthansa prior to my trip. To find out on the day of the flight that I had to check in and go through United was extremely annoying, as the counters are in different terminals and it was unnecessarily stressful. The flight itself was crammed, with absolutely no leg space, and not even enough space under the seat to stow my backpack (which had fit perfectly on my Brussels Airlines flight to Madrid). I had requested the Asian vegetarian meal, and the snack we got prior to landing was pretty much two slices of cucumber on a small bun (and an apple on the side) - extremely dry and hard to eat. I asked for mayo, but the flight neither had that, nor any other condiments to make the "sandwich" more edible."
Pros: "Comfy seats. Good entertainment. Good boarding.....Nice and professional crew."
Cons: "Ice cream was good but I don't like that as a dessert. Too much sugar. I;d rather another healthier option. Yoghurt maybe? If i can be picky, white wine could have been better."

Cons: "Pilot driving way to fast"
Pros: "Legroom - they held flgt"

The one guy on board was creepy Newark airports eating system made me go to 3 different iPads one for food one for drink and one to pay. Just let me pay when I order!!! Also bad signage"
Cons: "It was unclear that the check-in was through United in terminal 1, not through Lufthansa.So we were at terminal 4 and it took us an hour to get to check-in at terminal 1. Also the entertainment at my seat was not working so no movies for 9+hrs."
Pros: "Flight was on timw"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed nearly 2.5 hours due to a lightening strike that knocked out the ovens, the crew worked hard to make the flight comfortable."
