Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Arctic char looked like it really was salmon. Need better selection of contemporary movies. When The Third Man is the most attractive alternative it's not so great. Would like to have seen the attendants more pro-active in asking about beverages and passing out snacks, fruit, etc. Saw just the water, orange juice and apple juice trays being carried around."
Cons: "Had our luggage checked for connecting flight in Frankfurt"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"

Pros: "Thé entertainment was amazing. I watched a live soccer game"
Cons: "The space in the plane"

Cons: "Delayed run to the gate."
Pros: "We were greeted by cookies upon entering the flight. I liked this experience. for a 45min flight everything else was as expected."
Cons: "having to climb up 6 stories with carry on luggage isn't fun. Some elderly people were struggling, caused everyone to slow down. I'd have taken the elevator if I had known we had to walk all the way up. Regardless, my expectation of German airports and German engineering is high, but things we take granted in US like escalators are a luxury in Germany and clear directions are missing... on the oncoming flight we had to wait for a door to be unlocked while everyone was stuck in the aisle way and stairs.."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Well in time"
Cons: "We were not offered veg and non veg options. We were only offered a vegetarian meal. A minute later, the gentleman behind us was presented the two options. We disregarded this on the first flight, but when it happened on the next flight similarly, we asked if we could get our children the chicken meal. The air hostess explained they had no more. But she presented the two options to the fellow passenger behind us. We were extremely offended by the way we were treated. The airlines offers no entertainment for children as do other airlines. In fact, one air hostess went so far as to ask me to tell my Lil one to MUTE the volume of his ipad."
Pros: "Everything was good! I didn’t have any problems with that flight!!!"
Pros: "All worked as expected"
Cons: "No remarks to make"
Cons: "The flight attendant did not bring the wheel chair and take me to the bus where I waited too long and when I arrived to customs no wheel chair was there and I asked every officer there how to get the wheel chair no one helped after long time one officer called and the chair arrived and he transferred me to a cart the driver was very bad he did not help in seating me and I sit on the back with my carry on when he drives like crazy I fell on the floor screeming he stopped and place me in the front and he asked if I need a doctor I told him no I just need to catch my flight although I was hurt badly with a very big bruise and when I reach the gate the plane was gone and I have to wait for another flight to take me to San Francisco and from there to Los Angeles and I singed a paper that I don't want a doctor"
Pros: "Great service, on time departures and arrivals, lie flat seats in business class. The planes were relatively new. Waiting lounges at Delhi and Frankfurt are well stocked with food."
Cons: "Almost nothing"
Pros: "The Staff"
Pros: "1. Good choice of movies. The entertainment recommendations by airlines were well thought of. 2. Crew and service was one of the best. They timely came and offered juice and water. 3. We were well informed when flight had to make few rounds in the air before landing."
Pros: "I loved the hot towels."
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!!!!!! (I am only 5.3 Inch tall) What about the taller people? I was having stomach problems after eating the airplane food."
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: "Flight was an hour delayed for no reason. I missed my connection that I had 2.5 hours to catch"
Pros: "Missed the connection"
Cons: "Felt helpless and frustrated."
Pros: "The downstairs lavatories are genius!"
Pros: "Catering food and professional crew"
Cons: "Late boarding ,flight was delayed 25-30 minutes,turbulence over flight (slight)"
Cons: "Air didn't work, stewardess were rude"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Crew was very very rude , special meals were not provided in spite of being confirmed many weeks before"
Pros: "Only best part of Lufthansa is newer planes. Smooth rides. However, I don't think they can count on their customers base only on one positive for long run."
Cons: "Flights were late and boarding was caios, no one had any clue what to do. Blankets were filthy. Entertainment had limited choice. Considering I took six flights in this month, I will let it slide that they ran out of New movies. Worst part was food. Obviously, there is no quality consideration when they decide menu. Check Emirates or other similar fare bracket airlines to understand the gravity of Lufthansa food problem. If one reason I had to choose to drop Lufthansa from my future consideration then that would be worst food and drinks. I would strongly recommend that they should assign people who need additional time to board at the back of the plane. It will help them to go back of the plane faster and avoid gridlock in the middle. Another advantage is it will help other passengers leave plane faster at the end of the ride. Boarding process will be come significantly faster by filling the plane from back to front by loading passanger with children and who needs time at the first loading area at the back of the plane. Thanks"
Cons: "Boarding a blitz chaotic"
Cons: "We were detained at the airport after boarding and then deboarding without information. The entire flight was locked in a room and not allowed to leave with very little explanation as to why. After 5 hours they let us board another plane. There was water and candy supplied as food. It was a joke for anyone with kids or the elderly. Nevermind anyone with health concerns. BAD way to manage a crisis in my opinion. We were treated like cattle. And these were NOT cheap tickets."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. I had an exit row so plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was a short flight so it didn't really néed food and didn't have entertainment. They hand out pretzel mix, not something I can have (celiac). Doesn't matter on a short 1 hour flight."
Pros: "Love to be in the air... any flight"
Cons: "Price... When I found this flight it was under $500. As I waited for my check to be deposited the price went up nearly $500 as if it was programmed to go up if I didn't take book it the first time. From that point on, my flight was the highest priced flight np matter where I looked, my dates were the highest priced. Not happy. And my charges were more than the flight. How can that be fair. $400 flight $500 fee??? WTF??? But I needed the flight. I feel like I was screwed."
Pros: "Food was very good, super nice crew. Good selection of movies. Boarding was great, we are seniors, we didn't ask for assistance beforehand, but the person at the gate called us over and had us board early. Much appreciated!"
Cons: "Seats were just too cramped. We chose seats and paid extra to do that, but the seating charts really didn't give a very good idea of what to expect or how to choose. Announcements were to difficult to understand. Also in the gate area, I couldn't understand names at all. Need to slow down and speak more clearly."
Cons: "the seat. not suitable for a business category"
Pros: "The Premium Economy seats were significantly better than Economy seats. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The movie choices were not very good. Very few current movies."
Cons: "I will not be taking this airlines again"
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "My family took a flight earlier and my daughter complained about giving chicken to her although she was registered asian vegeterian. Same think happened to me as well. I was offered chicken even when i asked for asian vegeterian. When i asked to replace with vege option, the crew member replace with sea food, If this happens again, on my return flight, i am not going to let it go."
Cons: "They only had two meal options and the ran out of the vegetarian option. There were many people on the flight that didn't get a meal or had to take the meat option when they would have preferred the pasta."
Pros: "The crew was personable"
Cons: "Not enough recent television"
Cons: "Aircraft not comfortable at all Crew was late (due to storm?), flight landed 30 min late"
Cons: "Upgraded my seats for $$$ and they changed the plane and wouldn't honor it. Returning flight was canceled and they were very unhelpful"
Pros: "Everyone was very nice and I enjoyed the entertainment onboard."
Cons: "The food was average."
Pros: "We were given a free meal (sandwich) on this short duration flight. I thought that was a nice touch."
Cons: "The boarding process wasn't very smooth."
Pros: "seats were a bit bigger, ,more leg room, fewer people"
Cons: "The snack was not very natural...... could have been simpler with pure, non chemical ingredients......Organic would be best"
Cons: "Flight was operated by United. The gate crew were rude. The food was horrible. The flight attendants were at best mediocre."
Cons: "Delay could have been handled correctly. I should have gotten compensation for the 3 hr delay and the 9 hr delayed departure from SFO to PDX"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 min"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 22 hours!"
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Late arrival of aircraft. Mechanical problems with navigation able to get through that but took off one hour late. The usual."
Cons: "Need more legroom and luggage space. Long flight is painful"
Cons: "Due to purchasing from Kayak, we could not change flight even thought flight UA34 was delayed due to mechanical. We had to call ANA, United and Airline.com but no one can change flights. We will not purchase tickets from Kayak. We called 11/5 to assign seat numbers. However, when we get to the airport, our seat was no assigned as we requested. They had to re-arrange to sit next to each other for two of us. Fight got delay does not mean they can re-assign our seats."
Cons: "Flight attendant assignments to our seats were mishandled. We did have any food or drink offer until 90 minutes after boarding. We were told that one of the attendants fell ill but no was assigned to take her responsibilities."
Pros: "Fast easy."
Pros: "Fast easy"
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "No verbal announcements during boarding meant this flight had a very chaotic beginning. I cannot believe how tight the seats are on United's planes, and I am not a terribly large person. Airlines that still charge passengers for in-flight entertainment deserve a special sort of hatred that they receive, and United is the worst for this. Charging for wifi and movies is straight out of the year 2000, and that's squarely where United is. If JetBlue can offer free wifi, complementary movies and TV, snacks that are not stale, and an extra inch of legroom so can United. I hate this airline."
Pros: "Nothing because we didn’t leave Guam, was not allowed to go Japan due to having a green card and Philippines Passport."
Cons: "Service Overall of how we were treated by a bad customer services is really terrible and bad."
Cons: "It was HORRIBLE. They had to book us on another flight to Houston and then to Dallas because there were no more direct flights. We arrived at the check in counter at 10 AM. Flight left at 10:40. We were only 5 minutes late for the cutoff after a 15 hour flight with delays that were NOT our fault but were the fault of the airline itself. Our seats were terrible going back and they did not even offer us any kind of voucher to help with the added time and stress of having to wait for another flight and take an extra one."
Pros: "The flight journey had turbulence, but the landing shows the pilot just not having good skill during landing, extremely rough"
Pros: "Nothing, the crew was rude"
Cons: "The seats are not good need to be better"
Cons: "Crew ignored me, did not offer me refreshments, did not respond to my greetings"
Cons: "Something was wrong with the plane and I miss work"
Pros: "I like to the passengers on the plane werrhelpful"
Cons: "After calling United to change my seat to one in the same price category, I arrived on the airplane to find the attendants had no record of me having that seat. Which not only caused embarrassment for me and the other passenger but also held up the flight. Also this was the worst food I've ever had on a flight in my entire life even other United flights had much better meal choices."
Cons: "Very early in the morning We had to drive to Chicago to catch our flight to Sarasota. (Since our flight was delayed over 2.5 hrs) So since our car was in Chicago, we did NOT take the flight to Peoria."
Pros: "Quick, on time easy."
Cons: "Short flight.... so no food. No entertainment. Had to put my bag under plane and forgot to take out my headphones. My bad"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Then they told us they might turn us around and take us back. It was anxiety provoking."
Pros: "The crew were polite and better than usual. We arrived safely."
Cons: "So many sick people everywhere. Violent and inappropriate movies kids could see on other people's screens. Bathrooms too small. Nowhere to throw away trash and no button to call flight attendant."
Pros: "Pilot and stewards were upbeat and cheerful."
Cons: "sfo had shut down a runway so we were 3 hours late."
Cons: "The only entertainment on the first flight was through personal devices, and none on the second."
Pros: "The food was great"
Cons: "Boarding was slow"
Pros: "Efficient and friendly"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Great help from all the ground staff, especially in Osaka."

Pros: "The crew was awesome."
Pros: "The crew and ground staff kept us fairly well updated"
Cons: "An excessive delay that included having a part flown to Monterey from Los Angeles"
Cons: "NOT ON TIME EVER THIS FLIGHT IS ALWAYS DELAYED HATE TAKING IT ONLY DO AS A LAST RESORT"
Cons: "Fly on AA"
Pros: "Still stuck here"
Cons: "That you must pay to be able to watch basic TV. Other airlines have free TV or play a movie for you."
Cons: "I have been flying by ANA in the past. I prefer ANA service over the United."
Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "Worst airline food I have ever had. There were supposed to be two choices for dinner, when they ran out of one, they just shoved the food at you with no apologies. It was the worst fried chicken ever, and breakfast was worse. The two male flight attendants never smiled, had attirude, and were overall jerks."
Pros: "Flight crew did not offer any relief to baby or mother"
Pros: "Very nice flight staff. Will be joining again"
Pros: "Short. Easy."
Cons: "Flight a little late. Waited outside at SFO before anyone could board plane 15minutes it was cold."

Cons: "I had the exit row window seat and froze! I couldn't sleep that seat is so cold."
Pros: "Staff was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Not much, except the fact that it could have been worse."
Cons: "- Cheap quality food. And less in quantity. Less options. And they ran out of meal options even though I indicated them at the time of booking. - Not so clean - Sickness bags were used ones and had something in them. Clearly, they were not replaced. Toilets didn't have basic supplies like moisturizers. Not to mention they were super cramped. - Entertainment system was out of 60s. Small LCD and were of the smallest resolution and viewing angles - made watching anything akin to watching those cam rips floating all over internet. - Cramped leg room. And the premium seat didn't have any better room. Overall, one of the poorest flights I have ever flown on. Even Air India has much better planes and service."
Pros: "When l got to airport I was advised my flight had been canceled. Rerouted on United airlines thru Washington Dulles. Waited on Tarmac 2 1/2 hours due to bad weather, etherwise everything was good."
Cons: "Late flight hour and 39 mins"
Cons: "We were delayed with no real updates why"
Pros: "The worst I have ever taken"
Cons: "Flight attendants rude. Super late and no offer for a drink voucher even"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours and when I checked in the agents at the front desk offered me a $10 meal voucher to restaurants that were already closed, so it was basically useless. I had to walk to opposite end of the airport just to find something open. My seat and surrounding area were filthy. There was hard, crunchy food on the floor, the tray was sticky and the seat 'cushion' was rock hard. Being that I have a preexisting lower-back condition, sitting in that seat was horrible. When I asked a flight attendant for a wet rag to wipe the tray off they told me I could just switch seats and showed that they didn't care. Basically, it was a disappointing end to a great trip."
Pros: "Fairly nice crew"
Cons: "Still small seats . Very uncomfortable . Flights should not be that full on off holiday and week days"
Pros: "Very poor service"
Pros: "Boarding was confusing"
Pros: "We were able to board early and leave 20 mins early and landed a half hour before our schedule time"
