Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The leg room in economy class was average. Not too cramped. There were good selection of entertainment options to watch/listen."
Cons: "The care and friendliness of the staff needs improvement. The quality of the food was poor. Additionally the boarding process needs to be better organized. Property sequence and queues need to be maintained and followed through."
Pros: "Great staff , amazing dinner, and the entertainment screen size was best"
Cons: "Seats could be a little bigger"
Pros: "nice crew"
Cons: "old planes with bad seats and no chargers or entertainment"
Cons: "There was a very loud group teenagers/young adults that kept getting up visiting each other and hitting on other customers seats. After 7 hours of the crew nor anyone else saying anything to them I called the crew & asked them to have them quiet down and sit down. The staff should’ve handled better"
Pros: "Space in cabin, friendly crew and nice food"
Cons: "Shorter stoppage ;)"
Cons: "Wish we had empty seat between us, w both the same name it should hv been possible. Special meal bland"
Pros: "Plane and service was excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was a zoo as the system was down -not very organized either. There was one crew member who was extremely rude and even as people boarded by her section did not greet people. Skipped a few rows with drinks and then told them there was no time to bring even a glass of water. Fortunately another crew member (who we also asked as they went by) brought water to those she had skipped who wanted it. My TV monitor was not working. Aging planes - need a thorough cleaning. The announcements were garbled and very difficult to hear."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and always there to help. They managed a 15min boarding due to being well organized."
Cons: "I’m 5’7 and my knees were touching the seat in front of me- there is no way to be comfortable. You pay an extravagant amount of money and get squished in there like sardines. It’s disappointing."
Cons: "I missed somehow the distribution of headsets, and I never got one (after asking for one). (Un-)fortunaltely there was no movie I really wanted to watch, or classical music for my taste (recitals, chamber music). Anyway, this is not a major problem, just a tiny glitch. The random boarding went surprisingly well, although I'd prefer the more structured version. Until there is bread, butter and cheese, I am fine with the bland food."
Pros: "Staff was very responsive and quick to disperse food and beverages."
Cons: "I didn't care for the breakfast. The eggs tasted like the chicken and rice from the meal for dinner."
Pros: "Nothing positive to report...NOTHING!!"
Cons: "Worse travel day of my life. I'll never fly Lufthansa again and never go thru Frankfort again. Lost luggage both ways. Awful experience!! Hundreds of gates and we had to ride a bus out to the plane. Airline kept complaining to passengers that they didn't have enough personnel. Flight was late! Given totally incorrect information about luggage retrieval in Chicago. Not required! Waited 45 minutes for luggage that was not there and was supposed to be headed to Houston but did not arrive there either. Still waiting..."
Cons: "Flight got delayed 9 hours."
Pros: "How smoothly everything ran"
Cons: "Drinks served from glasses on a tray. I would have preferred an individual bottle of water."
Pros: "food, entertainment and most of the crew was great"
Cons: "Early boarding and then got yelled at for showing up 3min after official boarding time on ticket. no air vents for each seat. massive heat in airplane while waiting for taxiing"
Pros: "The boarding procedure was fast and efficient. There was almost no waiting in line and the crew got the plane ready in minutes. Entertainment and food on the flight were both pretty good."
Cons: "Seats were not too comfortable. For long flights like this one, they could really use a bit wider and softer seats."
Pros: "Great pilots and crew."
Cons: "Flight out was delayed by four and a half hours, missed connection was a pain. Was not aware that Lufthansa changed their policy. To reserve seats you have to pay hundreds of dollars, which was not made clear while booking. Further the quality of their food was significantly degraded."
Pros: "Everything was perfect ... pilots are so good and professional..!!)"
Pros: "Good pilots as usual new plane great service clean"
Cons: "Food could always get improvements"
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: "Such great personnel in the air - can't say enough how much I appreciated them."
Cons: "The airline as a whole, however, encourages you to book with them under the reasonable assumption that connecting flights with Lufthansa will be achievable. Now that I've seen Frankfurt, There was no way they could actually expect any of us to make our connecting flights. And they offer no compensation. When I did get another flight, it was terribly delayed. Talking in line with regular European travelers, they said they expect it. Also met several fliers at the service desk attempting to connect via entirely different routes, all having the same experience."
Pros: "The plane was new, clean and tight. Seats very narrow, no foot room with carry bag under seat on front. On time depart and arrive. Good movies. BUT, where are my bags. Second day in Geneva without clothes or medicines. SwissPort at GVA isn’t helping. They don’t even know where they are: don’t know if they left EWR"
Cons: "Too close for getting on as 3 passport checks seems redundant. Munich has very little signage to direct anyone. We do not live there so do not know the language."
Pros: "Was on time all the way, food was OK service was fine"
Cons: "I was so cold in my seat I couldn't get comfortable"
Pros: "On time, very pleasant crew, good, ample food."
Pros: "Boarding was ok. Crews not bad. Comfort ok."
Cons: "Food terrible. Please improve. If Lufthansa will like to continue carrying passengers from and to Nigeria they need to be giving the Nigerian passengers more than pester/spaghetti."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "There was at least 4 hours' delay in getting to St. Petersburg, due to the storm, and there was hardly any food or water served while waiting."
Pros: "This plane was an airbus, while the plane I took to Europe was a boeing something. Economy was much more comfortable and there were great entertainment options. I also like the frequent brandy, Bailey's, and water service. The flight attendants were nice and at least appeared to care about the level of service they were providing."
Cons: "This probably is just personal preference, but I didn't like the meal options all that much. But that's about it. Mind you, I eat German food often in the States, so the type of cuisine wasn't the problem."
Pros: "I liked that I got a snack."
Cons: "I didn't like my snack choices. Also, the seats had crumbs on them when I boarded."
Pros: "Every crew Member show care and respect"
Cons: "I Did Not have Any unpleasant experiențe after 9 years coming back to Cluj"
Pros: "Got me to Nuremberg"
Cons: "No notification to us, we found out through the news as we were checking in 24 hours prior. Thrived calling Lufthansa - their message actually told me to call back. When I tried to go online, our booked flight didn't even show up to change or cancel. Booked another flight from another city (Amnsterdam) at my own expense. Expect compensation from Lufthansa."
Pros: "I got the meal of my choice. Excellent attention and check in experience was smooth and quick"
Pros: "Food/drink choices and portions were very generous on our long haul flight . Efficient boarding. Lots of entertainment options as well."
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Staff was rude at the terminals and a lot of frowning faces on the plane. My seat was constantly bumped by crew with no acknowledgement. The boarding was confusing and disorganized to the point the boarding agent was not sure which gate handled which group ( they use 2 for these big planes)and kept calling out the wrong information. Passengers could not believe it. Tight seats for an overseas flight."
Pros: "Staff are very friendly & well mannered. I like it since it's my first to fly with Lufthansa which compare to Swiss Air"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very friendly. Everything went perfectly."
Pros: "Great service."
Pros: "Professional flight crew. Good leg room. Smooth flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Too hot and stuffy. No air."
Cons: "Aircraft not comfortable at all Crew was late (due to storm?), flight landed 30 min late"
Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Took 2.5 hours to even get water from the crew. Food was disturbingly bad (hot goo). Service was unbelievably slow. I've never seen something like this on a major airline. Shocked and disappointed."
Cons: "I was rerouted to Munich from Amman because I missed my connection to Berlin due to a late aircraft. Once in Munich there was no one at the Royal Jordanian booking desk to direct me. This was even after staff was pages by the airport help desk. On a hunch And out of desperation to get to my destination I went to another airlines desk and they found they had a reservation for me, made by Royal Jordanian. I was never informed of this and had I known sooner I wouldn't have wasted so much time waiting at their desk."
Cons: "Our plane've got hit at the wheels when we were boarding the airplane. We couldn't take off until it was inspected, which I liked, but it made us about 40 minutes late to Budapest. When the airplane took off from Munich, one of the over head bin opened up which was full of carry-ons just above a family with two little kids. Everybody got scared that something will be flying out of there. I understand that no one should leave their seat to close it, but it was extremely dangerous for it to stay open, and because no flight attendant came to close it two of the passengers had to got up."
Pros: "we were treated like royalty"
Pros: "Free wine! The crew was very polite. Flight was fairly smooth"
Pros: "Comfortable - seats were comfortable, and there was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Meal was awful - I'm not a picky eater, but I couldn't eat this one. Overhead bins were very limited in space available. The video screens were tiny - difficult to see, and colors were way off. Wi-Fi connection was not intuitive - apparently it requires the user to type in a specific web address to access the log-in, something that I didn't find out until after the flight. That info should be more obvious - not on a card deep in the seat back pocket. Overall, it was obvious that this was an older aircraft and needs to be overhauled or retired."
Cons: "A few days before our travel I attempted to upgrade my booking via your website. It would not let me. I think it's absolutely ridiculous that you charge $50 per just to reserve an economy seat, so I attempted to do so at the Venice airport. I was told I had to do so I in Munich but when we got there I was told there were no upgrades or "forward" seats available. On the plane I again requested an upgrade or to at least to move forward, I was told there was nothing available. My husband and I are a "mature" couple and had been traveling since early morning Venice time. We were seated at the very back of the Airbus.... Our rear location caused us to miss the Coach USA bus to take us the additional 75 miles closer to home so we had to wait an additional hour and a half for the next bus!"
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: "Internet WiFi"
Pros: "Crew was very nice!!"
Cons: "Space on seat not comfortable for tall people"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 22 hours!"
Cons: "No on flight entertainment at all no TVs no United app. The could care less. Left early out of Santiago but for nothing really waited about an hour at the tarmac for a gate to. Become available. Very hot tight on that cabin. Need to do better United!"
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was ok. Seats were nice"
Cons: "It was good. I’m satisfied"
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: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Everything but the easy boarding. Horrible comfort level to the point of wishing I could have hurled myself out of the plane."
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: "Worst crew, bad food, small personal space. Cheapskate company."
Pros: "It was on time and crew was pleasant. No delays."
Cons: "So crowded! So much less space than there once was."

Pros: "The fast and electronic check in"
Cons: "The ground staff"
Pros: "Rebooked me a nonstop flight to my destination!"
Cons: "Delays. O'Hare. United. Storms and air traffic control. Looking all across the board, it didn't look like anyone was leaving Chicago anytime soon."

Pros: "The acceleration of the flight"
Cons: "The wait during the boarding process"
Cons: "Flight was delayed from 8:20 to 12:40"
Pros: "The flight left on time"
Cons: "Baggage fees were very high for an extra bag. Service on the flight was overall ok. Boarding was slow and a little annoying. Gate agents were rude"
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."
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."

Cons: "Flight delays"
Pros: "No problems at all. Great experience."
Pros: "I like the United check in person in Milwaukee / kind- helpful- informed. All United personal were polite and professional in spite of many delays , cancellations and upsets."
Cons: "Out going flight to Denver never made it to salt lake . Rebooking barely got us to connecting flights.... but made it we ran to connecting flight and did make connection. Returning, our first flight also never appeared ... two hours and 15 mins of standing in line to rebook We boarded another flight. In Chicago we stood in another line to rebook . Eventua"
Cons: "I have been flying by ANA in the past. I prefer ANA service over the United."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours. In 15 minute increments so we kept thinking we were leaving and then it kept getting delayed. Almost missed my brother's graduation from basic training. Not pleased. I would like some kind of compensation for this. Also I am flying back now and my flights have been very delayed and I will arrive at least seven hours later than planned."
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: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Late flight and plane was not parked right at terminal in Chicago so it made for a long wait to get off the plane"
Pros: "United entertainment options are fantastic. Using their app and on board wifi we have access to a very large collection of free movies and tv shows that kept me entertained"
Cons: "We taxied on the runway for over an hour waiting for a spot to take off. That is acceptable as the airport was dealing was lightning strikes. What was not acceptable was that fact that the airplane cabin during this time was a sauna. The air conditioning did not work and the entire airplane was really hot the crew said that the air was turned on all the way but that was having no effect. Beverages were served 5 mins before landing. How do we seat or drink anything in that time?."
Cons: "The food was not really edible on this flight. The seats are also quite uncomfortable- I'm not a particularly large person, and yet they were uncomfortably stiff."
Pros: "The crew was great and there was plenty of provided snacks and food."
Cons: "I had the exit row window seat and froze! I couldn't sleep that seat is so cold."
Pros: "...I got the standby flight....I guess that's cool..."
Cons: "My red eye was delayed35 minutes because of wheel replacement making it impossible for me to make my40 some odd minute layover and I had to burn up hours of my vaca in an airport and reschedule a pick up."
Pros: "The crew was doing their work well."
Cons: "At the boarding gate over 30 people were in line to get a seat number. I thought I had successfully selected my aisle seat online but was arbitrarily given a middle seat. I tend to use the washroom often. I had to climb over a sleeping passenger many times, without waking him up. One gentleman had some serious problems there but it was clear he was not getting any resolution. he was obviously very very frustrated. Syrupy sweet noodles?"
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "My connecting flight was cancelled and had to be taken to another airport for a connecting flight and was told that it was overbooked Very stressful situation to wait to find out if we had a seat available on that flight if not wait till the next one. Terrible"
Cons: "I was in a middle seat and the woman next to me required a seatbelt extension- which in my opinion means she should have purchased 2 seats. Why should I pay full price for 3/4 of a seat because the woman next to me is overweight?? Moral of the story: Seatbelt extensions = BUY AN EXTRA SEAT!"
Cons: "The flight coming back to Houston was late."
