Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Everything was fine!"
Cons: "Everything was fine!"
Cons: "There were a couple of flight delays. Other that that, I love Lufthansa."
Cons: "Service desk personnel at the gate were very helpful and attentive. The plane was only 1/2-2/3 full, which made boarding quicker. The food was tasty and coffee was great! We were also offered juice twice during the flight. Bathrooms were clean. Since the plane wasn't full, they weren't dirty even at the end of the flight. I brought my own headphones, but the stewards provided them if you need them. My one big complaint was that our seats did not recline, thus making any kind of shut-eye near impossible. Our plane left and hour late, but the pilots stepped on the gas and we got in on time!"
Cons: "The airline lost our bags!"
Cons: "The transfer at Frankfurt was a horrible experience. The terminal for departure was all the was at the other side of the airport. Leaving me barely enough time to transfer."
Pros: "TSA in Philadelphia were very rude and aggressive. This is not Lufthansa's fault, but LH can at least pass on word that their passengers were hassled unnecessarily by TSA personnel."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Pros: "Entertainment and food were geat and a great distraction from the seating arrangement and the horrible leg area."
Cons: "Not having a chair leg in the middle of the leg area. being able to sit next to my partner instead of having us split up. If we bought two tickets at the same time we should have been able to sit together. Lastly the huge delay that caused us to miss are final flight."
Cons: "They Lost 2 bags in Munich. Here in Sardinia 3 days and without our stuff for today and most of tomorrow."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "More leg room."
Pros: "Lufthansa service from JFK-FRA-FCO-FRA-JFK was gracious, efficient and altogether pleasurable."
Pros: "smooth as silk flight, beautiful clean comfy airplane. Roomy seats. great entertainment system. Excellent friendly staff. Pretty darn good food. Excellent value."
Cons: "having to come back from vacation!!"
Pros: "It was very smooth, the connection was great, boarding went easy, service was nice."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online and because I booked pretty late, didn't get the seat choice I wanted. I purchased the flight via the Lufthansa site, but then on check-in, I found out that the first segment was SAS, so neither the Lufthansa site nor the SAS site let me check in online."
Pros: "the fact that the departure was delayed due to a late connection flight from Pisa."
Cons: "the extra fees for the tickets of our pets because the reservation was not made on line when that was impossible for us to do when we purchased our tickets, nor when we received the notice on the 31st of August because our computer was already packed in the suit case and didn't see it until September 2nd."
Cons: "United connection in San Francisco was over 2 hours late, didn't arrive home until 2:30AM."
Cons: "Getting through security in Munich was a nightmare and I almost didn't make this flight. Luckily i had a friend that asked them to hold the plane but there seemed to be no communication that people from other flights were delayed getting to the gate. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Nice aircraft, great entertainment, good crew"
Cons: "Maybe a selection of snacks during the flight? Just pretzels seems inadequate for an 11 hour flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive. It's clear they hire for people with high EQs."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Media box under the seat in front of me so no room to put my carry on under the seat. Also, breakfast was skimpy. Some fruit and a muffin."
Cons: "seating is very cramped when the plane is full"
Pros: "I liked the food and the election of entertainment. I’m"
Pros: "Courteous staff, good in-flight entertainment, efficient boarding and deboarding, lots of space on the flight"
Pros: "Upgraded seats from PHL to FRA, which was great. Had a lot of legroom. Very nice staff, comfortable flight"
Cons: "Very small legroom from Frankfurt to Budapest. When you are 5’11 it’s hard to fly . The prices i have to pay all the time to upgrade only because I am tall is out of control. It adds hundreds to my flight cost when the prices are already high."
Pros: "Thanks for offering kosher!"
Cons: "Fish :("
Cons: "I haven’t received my luggage and I have been in Mumbai for almost 3 days!!! I have to buy new clothes and plenty of toiletries, I have only had 1 phone call from the airline to tell me my bags never left SFO!!! Wtf!"
Cons: "I didn't like going downstairs to the bathroom. I'm sure there is a good reason why we did it. Also, the seats are too close together for a trip of that length of time."
Pros: "It was clean and it was on time."
Pros: "Very professional and nice crew. Clean and new planes."
Cons: "Flights are never on time, seats are extremely small and planes are very often full. Not enough storage for carry on."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with a very poorly set up e-mail. No alternative suggestions, no phone number where to call, nothing. Very unhelpful. When calling a phone number finally found on the internet there was a 40 min waiting loop, only to then have a very bored and annoyed sounding call attended who finally was able to rebook the flight. Overall very poor service, at the very least there should have been a guideline of what steps to take now in the cancelling of the flight E-mail and where to call."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Very hot on the plane, food mediocre, flight attendants could be friendlier"
Cons: "Less space in the seats than there used to be."
Pros: "The positive attitude of the crew members. Even though flight long they continued to smile. Very smooth flying and plane on time. Free drinks including alcohol."
Cons: "Cramped conditions."
Pros: "Good service."
Pros: "Every thing was great except the seats were small"
Cons: "The seats are small"
Cons: "Worst food I've ever had inside an airplane. Pretty bad uncomfortable seats as well."
Cons: "It was a great flight"
Pros: "The big deal for me was that I was upgraded (at no cost) to Premium Economy class. I enjoyed the extra leg room and the ability to lie back (further than in regular economy class). The free drinks were also a plus."
Cons: "The only thing I can remark upon is that because someone in front of you can lie back so far, it becomes difficult for the person sitting in the window seat to leave his or her seat without disturbing the person in front of him or her."
Pros: "General quality and competence."
Cons: "I find the seats in Economy rather uncomfortable (Premium Economy is way better, but too expensive for me)."
Pros: "First time for flying Lufthansa and I rate it higher than Emirates which was my favorite until now. Reasons? Number one, the crew. On top of every detail for a comfortable flight. Ten hours and I didn't sleep at all( never can sleep sitting up) and I think they came by with extra water and juices at least six times. Two hot meals of delicious food, superb snacks available near the galley, and comfortable seats with better than average legroom."
Cons: "Can't think of anything except the length of the flight which can't be helped."
Pros: "I have always wanted to travel with Lufthansa and will do so in future too. For my wife it was her first and she loved it."
Pros: "Professional staff. Appreciated warm towels before meals. Appreciated few announcements during flight so we could sleep."
Cons: "Difficult to eat when seat backs were back in front of us. Fight attendants did not request seat backs to be raised during meals."
Cons: "It was my bad luck to be near two children whose parents would not keep them quiet and who played games on their screen for nine hours straight, shrieking the entire time. Nor did any of the stewards help or say boo to the parents."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed which caused us to miss our next flight. This was a huge inconvenience. When we were in line to get our hotel they did not help the people who were first in line. We were in the middle of the line, but got everything organized for us LAST."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Pros: "Attentive crew, easy boarding (for 2 elderly people)"
Cons: "The announcements from cockpit were very hard to understand, even in English........they were speaking very fast. Also the announcements made at the gate were difficult to understand."
Cons: "Flight repeatedly delayed and then cancelled due to United technical issues. Was rebooked on another carrier, but United couldn't get our baggage back to us in time to make that flight thanks to the absolute circus that ensued at the gate. 9:55am flight turns into a night at the airport hotel with vouchers that would only allow us to eat from the horrible buffett (ordering off the hotel menu was not covered). Put on same flight the follow day. Wait for it.... Delayed again (no weather). Would never have booked a flight with United in the first place due to similar issues in the past , but got duped when I booked this Luftansa flight and found out after the fact that it was operated by United. Never again, again."
Pros: "Everything is great. The airplane, staff, and their terminal at the airport"
Cons: "I can't find anything bad about me experience with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Actually decent silverware in economy. Cabin service very smooth and attentive."
