Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Nice crew great sitting"
Cons: "Boarding has always been slow with this trip.... disorganized"
Pros: "Business class upgrade"
Cons: "Sitting in window next time"
Cons: "Server was mean"
Pros: "Lufthansa long haul flights has a really cool air flight status system."
Cons: "Sometimes you just get the bad luck of having a smelly passenger next to you. This was one of those flights."
Pros: "The leg space was great for economy class. There was room for bags in the overhead. The movie selection was great."
Cons: "Boarding via bus.... first bus had kids, business class, and people who needed help. Second bus had everyone else. Both waited on the tarmac for the plane to be ready and both busses opened the doors at the same time. The families were swamped while trying to load the plane with kids in tow."
Pros: "I like the cree"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Comfortable 747-400 plane with huge overhead bins and plenty of leg room even in economy, Great cabin crew. Food was, well, airplane food. But at least there was a vegetarian choice, which I looked way better than the meat dish,"
Cons: "Service was a bit rushed at the end. In the last hour of a 10-hour flight they served another meal, which was similar to the first meal (even though it could have served as breakfast or lunch). Also had to fill out the customs declaration and prepare for landing,"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "Movie selection was very limited"
Pros: "Their airport service is outstanding. We were traveling with a mobility challenged person and they were so helpful in getting us through check in, out to our gate, and through boarding."
Cons: "The service and staff on the plane are top notch, and the meals and drinks were very satisfying. The entertainment center on each seat had enough choices to pass the time. I rate Lufthansa a very good choice for trips to Europe, and will use them on my future trips."
Cons: "Boarding was ridiculously unorganized and stressful."
Pros: "I'll probably never fly Basic Economy again....it's worth the extra money."
Cons: "See first comment."
Pros: "everything was good other than the entertainment package"
Cons: "not verymany movies to select"
Pros: "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: "I am in love with these guys! They made me feel very welcomed and proved that German quality is the highest one. The crew was just brilliant! Incredible comfort. Thank you!"
Pros: "So much more comfortable to sit and sleep on such a long flight. Worth every penny!"
Pros: "The good organization and the friendly atmosphere."
Cons: "The bad movies."
Cons: "They left my suitcase in Frankfurt with our car keys."
Pros: "The crew - seemed very amenable and pleasant on this flight. One helped me move to effectively solve the acute posture problem."
Cons: "The seat - window by request, but it was in front of an emergency exit The seat - is jammed in - very tight - could not put it back to relax, and could not relax my left side by the window. My left shoulder and arm and left hip started hurting - couldn't sleep - took 2 days to get rid of the numbness in my arm. I asked to move, and it became obvious that there were many empty seats in the next section behind. I moved, and my comfort improved. Why was I given such a posture killer - especially on such a very long flight with seats to spare?"
Pros: "The food and service is always good. In flight entertainment and nice planes!"
Cons: "To board- it's just a long queue - any way to shorten line so we don't have to stand for so long?"
Cons: "Seat was too small and really uncomfortable"
Cons: "My video player had substantially less options than the rest of my aisle. The food was below average."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. I enjoyed the choice of entertainment. Food and drink were fine."
Cons: "I wish we had more leg room. It was so crowded and I could barely move!"
Pros: "Staff on board was cordial und Wunderbar"
Cons: "Handle on wife's Travel Scoot was slightly bent but it still works."
Pros: "As always, Lufthansa provides a great flight experience. Attentive crew, clean seats, and good leg room. Will fly Lufthansa again and again."
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as last year. Not bad, just not as good."
Cons: "Food was pretty bad"
Pros: "1. The crew was very pleasant and responsive. 2. The entertainment selections were plenty, recent and without extra cost. 3. The food was nice (if you weren't having meat options). My travel companion was a bit disgusted by the meat. I enjoyed the pasta!"
Cons: "1. The seats were extremely uncomfortable without sufficient cushioning. It felt like sitting on a plank. My back still hurts. We also had to straighten up the seats during meals because it was so bad for the person behind. 2. Boarding is a bit disorganized. Perhaps try splitting the boarding process into zones so it isn't a mad house free for all after the initial boarders. 3. On my flight to Frankfurt, the plane was half empty, yet my seat was changed from row 8 where I would have had almost no one near me back to row 23 where they had cramped all the passesngers into one area of the plane. This was done without request or explanation."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, the crew very nice, the food good and many good movies to choose from."
Cons: "Could have used a few more snacks. But didn't bother to ask for any either."
Pros: "non stop to Frankfurt very timely scheduleing was able to find reasonably priced flight to meet my travel needs."
Cons: "I felt the food was worse not good or tasteless. choices were as bad as previous flight in the fall. I have to bring snacks to make it bearable."
Pros: "Was given an upgraded seat due to the confusion on my confirmed seat being given away."
Cons: "Confusion on my confirmed seat assignment caused major frustration when in a foreign country. We took off late so missed my shuttle in Seattle so had to wait 2 hours for the next shuttle."
Pros: "Entertainment, flight crew was courteous and helpful, lots of snacks, water, and free wine!"
Cons: "One of our pieces of luggage did not make it back with us. The good thing is that the Lufthansa staff was helpful, the automated emails kept me informed, and the bag was delivered to me as soon as possible. Seems to me it was as good as it gets when a piece of luggage gets lost."
Cons: "No food service for a evening flight. Delayed because of a toilet problem."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive. Our flight was delayed twice, once in Frankfurt for late luggage and the ground crew left without pushing back the plane, then again in Seattle for a plane on the tarmac on fire. A 10 hour flight turned into 14 hours but I still enjoyed it. There was plenty of leg room and the seats were very comfortable. The entertainment was very enjoyable and the meals were satisfying. For such a long haul Lufthansa made the time flyby."
Cons: "The crying baby a couple rows back. Also some smelly passengers that have poor hygiene."
Pros: "Lufthansa rocks!"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew was excellent"
Cons: "One flight assistant seemed a bit gruff and impatient compared to the others . Also food was nothing special. We could have used more water offerings and trash pickups during the flight afterwards the cabin was a mess."
Pros: "It was my first time using the upper deck of a 747. The setup is pretty decent with lay flat beds (I still couldn't sleep though). The attendants were all very nice. The food was much better than on my inbound flight on United..."
Cons: "The entire experience was ruined by one hour spent on the tarmac in Seattle, waiting for a gate to become available... This is lame not only for the passengers but also for the people waiting to pick them up. The selection on the entertainment system was limited."
Pros: "They didn't charge me for my surfboards which was great. It was my only check-on bag and under two meters and that should be free on every airline. Flight attendants were very nice and professional. I gave the food 5 stars based on other airline food, I'm not expecting restaurant quality at 37,000'. Movie selection was adequate for me, although I've seen some complaints in the reviews here."
Cons: "It was a little tricky checking in on my phone. The check email reminder didn't carry the info I needed to check in which required extra searching and copying and pasting. That experience could be streamlined. There was group confusion when being directed to board the plane on two flights."
Pros: "Captain was personable and made the flight more enjoyable"
Cons: "Length, which could not be helped"
Pros: "The price, the service, the food."
Cons: "The sardine can."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding. Cheerful and helpful crew. Clean cabin. Everything was 100%."
Cons: "Nothing. I was a happy camper from beginning to end."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew, efficient service, okay food options and good quantity for a lengthy flight. Very happy that a vegetarian option isn't a battle anymore! The entertainment options were very nice, the time passed quickly with the many movie options."
Cons: "No real complaints, maybe the cabin air was a little stuffy, but it's too be expected on a flight of 11.5 hrs. Crew offered water and juice throughout the flight which helped."
Pros: "Vissited my brother in law in Karlsruhe Germany wonderful trip to and from Frankfurt"
Pros: "Crew was great... food was wonderful. The lie-flat seat made my day."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean. Staff was kind and helpful."
Cons: "The food wasn't good. The pasta was soggy and the bread was hard and stale."
Pros: "You fed us a lot, which was appreciated. The food was pretty good, especially for airline food. And you were generous with the alcohol:-)"
Cons: "My seat mate was very difficult. I'd appreciate more movie selection, like newer US films."
Cons: "Didn't take it"
Pros: "First meal was great, second meal was just ok. Seats felt a little cramped for an international flight."
Cons: "Boarding felt like a disorderly free-for-all with people making two competing lines that had to eventually merge. Designating a clear queue would probably not only speed things up, but would improve passenger happiness. You could literally draw a stripe on the floor for each entrance."
Pros: "Everything was great. Good movies, helpful crew, good food for an airline."
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "Nostalgic plane ride"
Cons: "Use more modern plane for these short trips. No drinks offered due to turbulence. Old Bombardier plane had no way of storing carry-ons other than beneath seat, thus limiting leg space"
Pros: "Roomier seats overall, the headrest screens and USB ports are great!"
Cons: "We paid extra for seats with more leg room and got the same as everyone else. Why the charge? Our departure was delayed. The plane had some sort of fragrance regularly coming thru the ventilation that irritated my sinuses and made me ill. The water for the only service on the flight (for coach anyway) was warm and tasted odd. Cabin temperature was too warm (multiple logical arguments can be made for cooler temps over warmer)"
Pros: "Exceptional & friendly service."
Cons: "For a 4+ hour flight they may consider offering some free snack & drink."
Pros: "Flight was not overbooked Flight left early & arrived early No delays from AC"
Pros: "My 15 minute nap"
Cons: "The male crew member seemed to be having a rough day."
Pros: "staff was great. Nice variety on the entertainment selection, movie and TV"
Cons: "seats are a little too crammed."
Cons: "Temperature varied widely throughout the flight. Entertainment system down for over an hour. No fresh food left for the back of the plane - Late departure."
Cons: "Employees very poorly trained in dealing with problems. While our flight was okay, the previous flight was overbooked and a number of transferring customers were bumped because their flight was late. I understand this is common practice, but the employees handled it VERY poorly, even yelling at the passengers when they voiced their dismay at what was going to be a very long layover after a very long international flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and comfortable seats"
Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "Film selection is ok."
Pros: "Flight attendant was great"
Cons: "Overbooked flight. Only able to board because someone missed flight. Delayed flight by over 30 minutes."
Cons: "Flight was about an hour late due to crew problems."
Pros: "The food was pretty good!"
Cons: "*The in-flight entertainement required you tonise your own mobile devices, but locks "premium" content (movies) and forces you to install an app to view it - which you can't do once your on the plane and have no wifi. Also, there's no way my iPad would've lasted 7h without a charging port anyways..."
Cons: "Flight cancelled without ever receiving any notice -- I found out when I was in the security line. Waited 1.5 hours to talk to an agent. On standby for 7 hours. No food vouchers. Air Canada agents gave very little information, didn't care at all that they had cancelled dozens of flights."
Pros: "It was fine. :-)"
Pros: "The price was good and connections were well-timed, and my seat-mate was a nice guy!"
Cons: "There was no food on a 5-hr international flight, the video screen didn't work well, and the flight attendant was having a rough day. And we took off at least 30 minutes late due to a couple of technical issues."
Pros: "Flight crews were great."
Cons: "Ground crews and Air Canada's booking system caused no end of trouble. Weather started the problem but human error meant an incredibly stressful rebooking, requiring three agents at ticketing plus the IT help desk just to figure out what the agent I had reached over the phone had done. In Quebec City not nearly enough agents to check bags; huge lines, people being shunted to the front so they wouldn't miss their flights."
Cons: "No legroom at all. Try to squeeze far too many passengers."
Pros: "Our flight attendant, Sabrina, was fantastic. Quite friendly and helpful. You can tell she loves her job. She patiently answered questions and made the flight really pleasant."
Pros: "Crew friendly and helpful. Short flight. Great service (got a soda and pretzels on a 30 minute flight)"
Cons: "Small, worn plane."
Cons: "Took off too late and missed next flight"
Cons: "To start with the boarding was like herding cattle. They could not control the people and people were just lining up all over the place regardless of their zone number. My husband is 6'6" and the leg room on the Air Canada flight was horrible. He had to sit with his legs out and the flight attendant kept asking him to put them in..he could not as they would not fit at all. He ended up standing up most of the 3 hour flight. I will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Short flight. Simple. Smooth."
Cons: "There was a short delay because crew was caught up in security."
Pros: "It was a very short flight, but with all the weather issues in Seattle at the time, they did everything they could to get us off on time (maybe even early) to avoid air traffic control delays."
Cons: "Small child violently kicked me seat the entire flight. I asked the parent (politely) to ask his son to stop but he didnt think he should have to. (They also thought it was fine for their toddler daugther to crawl into another sleeping passengers lap during flight. The crew was no help. I get that kids are kids but this was excessive. A crying baby would have been a welcone change. I think the crew should have stepped in."
Pros: "I was really tired and the plane was full but I could nap. Baggage came quickly."
Cons: "No free meal because not technically an international flight I guess."
Pros: "We liked the entertainment options and the crews were very friendly."
Cons: "We didn't like not having blankets on the round-trip flights between Seattle and Toronto."
Pros: "Not really stands out as a positive."
Cons: "Overall came across as not up to the standards of other carriers."
Pros: "Very fast."
Pros: "I flew Seattle to Vancouver to Montrail to Nice. Sept 2 2016 on the way home I flew Nice, Frankfort, Calgary to Seattle Sept 12, 2016"
Cons: "Food from McDonalds would have been 10 times better than food they served. I ate only 2 bites and it smelled bad and made me feel nautilus."
Pros: "Media and staff very good"
Cons: "Airport was empty, plane was empty. But still had to wait to get on due to filled with people who put suitcases away that sat near front but not first class."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to pick my seat. I love the exit row."
Cons: "Being woken up. But it was for a good reason. Personal safety."
Cons: "Air Canada closed the door ten minutes before departure although the knew we were in the terminal trying to get to the gate. Air Canada charged us $315 for a flight two hours later."
Cons: "For the price, the length and the fact that it was an international flight. I would have expected not to be required to paid for luggage and to have some food been provided to us. In particular, after the return flight was delayed considerably due to airplane issues."
Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "All the flights left late. Not enough room for carry on luggage. No free booze on International flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time.Seats were comfortable with adequate leg room."
Cons: "There was no snack offered, just food for sale, and it was a long flight. Also there were several movies listed in the entertainment guide that were not available on the entertainment system. There were not many movies available at all."
Pros: "I enjoyed the selection of movies that they had."
Cons: "Seats are wildly uncomfortable and cramped. I guess that is what you come to expect from flying, but man does it suck. Longer flights, over 4 hours, should include a complimentary snack. It is a long while to go without food, and paying 5 bucks for a small pack of candy is a bit ridiculous."
Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Seating is tight for anyone with long legs over 6 feet tall."
Cons: "Seats did not recline. It was one of the least comfortable flights I've been on in th past few years."
Pros: "Their 787 is indeed a dream to fly! The flight felt much shorter than on other airplanes."
Cons: "Their website didn't work for checking in, then their offices were closed most of the time, with no 24 hr support, leaving me high and dry on several occasions when I needed to check in, and when I needed to make a special meal request."
Pros: "Always seems to happen with some leg of an Air Canada flight....and they couldn't find my luggage, so delayed my boarding at Customs, too."
Cons: "3 mechanical problems. Two missed flights. 16 hours late. Lost luggage. The crew sent us at wrong place, we were stuck in a room until 6:30 am. We had to sleep on chairs. Everything that could go bad went bad. Will never ever fly with Air Canada again. That is a promise."
Cons: "They overbooked the flight and would not allow me to board even though I had booked my ticket months in advance."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Flight got in early which is always nice."
Cons: "Outlets on the plane didn't work so I couldn't keep my phone charged. Kayak sent me an email indicating both my flights were on Air Canada but my flights to and from SFO were on United. I was unable to change my seats online with no explanation."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Was able to move from my assigned centre of row seat to an aisle seat, which however was I'm the last row outside the toilets. Checked bag came quickly in Seattle. Descent was gradual enough, or something, that my ears, which normally hurt excruciatingly from about 20,00-10,000 feet, barely bothered me."
Cons: "Check in, customs, etc in Toronto was a series of long long lines that took nearly 1.5 hours (not AC's fault but an unpleasant aspect of the trip). Plane was full and very cramped, impossible to get up and walk. The tv monitors on my side/half of the plane conked out midway through flight."
Pros: "Air Canada's cabin attendents make the journey bearable. Keep these people at all costs, becauae they are doing a fantastic job."
Cons: "I prefer the old-fashioned seatback monitor to rental ipads."
Pros: "Service was great, food provided on our international flight was delicious and more than plenty. Beverages were tasty, the check-in and boarding process was very smooth and well organized. My wife and I definitely had a great experience."
Cons: "United, along with American, is a horrible carrier, and the next time it files for bankruptcy, needed to be allowed to remain our of business. The employees don't care about service at all, it's no longer part of their culture."
Cons: "Friendlier service."
Cons: "Some kind of compensation to cover the missed shuttle and my time."
Pros: "Love the ability to watch films on my device by way of United WiFi"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "Better staff"
Cons: "Still terrible"
Cons: "If the power outlet works reliably, it would be much better. The toilet was really small."

Cons: "Delayed departure about 20 minutes. No food for a 5 hour trip. (Knew in advance)."
Pros: "Brand new plane"
Cons: "Didn't get much refreshment"
Pros: "The fact that we actually left."
Cons: "Delayed and upset passengers. Bad breath from passengers circulating in the AC. FA we're okay nothing above and beyond."
Pros: "Not a lot to say really from a positive, In Europe if we had to fly over 4 hours the airlines put on larger planes, this plane was small for a 6+ flight"
Cons: "Small plane for a 6+ hour flight, food is . sub standard, if you want to watch the onboard entertainment you need to do so from you phone or Ipad, you need their app installed first and flash player, if not your screwed. They allow you to download their flash player but it does not work."
Pros: "Everything was great except for the food."
Cons: "The hamburger bun was hard as a rock."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Service and flighr smooth"
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "It's a zoo. It's a DIY of checking in and checking your bags in. No staff is around to help. You are on your own. Unorganized."
Cons: "Late late late. Had to run to get my connection. Not Uniteds fault though. SFO too busy. Will avoid in future."
Pros: "The two people that helped."
Cons: "That United had NO remorse for our inconvenience and offered NO compensations."
Pros: "Everyone and everything was great"

Pros: "Cheap fare"
Pros: "Airport not crowded. Efficient boarding!"
Cons: "Staff was rude and it was some what ok"
Pros: "The morning cookie was good."
Cons: "It was dirty."
Pros: "No charging docks on plane as military duffle bag open with clothing hanging out on arrival ~ not sure if anything stolen but the threat is very real and it's unacceptable for military bags to be delivered in that manner"
Cons: "The cabin was too hot."
Cons: "Support for all Android platforms needs to be updated."
Pros: "Great service and food"
Pros: "Punty of room to strich legs. Offered drinks 4 times"
