Pros: "Flight delayed so was my luggage for more than a week."

Cons: "Offer water or any drinks instead of us having go to the kitchen area. Would be better to offer drinks in bottles instead of a glass. Also, bring snack offerings throughout cabin.

We asked the flight attendants twice for blankets and each time they said no. I know they had extra blankets but for some reason they did not give us one. I thought that sitting in comfort+ they'd at least give us the comfort of a blanket but I guess not... Oh well."

Cons: "Seat couldn't recline back. Was a little uncomfortable for a long flight.

Pros: "They forgot the CC reader so drinks were free. The free GoGo media is cool."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and rescheduled 3 times. Delayed. Tiny plane = uncomfortable and turbulent."
Pros: "There were a lot of free movie options for a 6hour flight. The tv was new and had good definition. The food offered was quite substantial.

Cons: "The seats did not recline for anyone on the plane."
Cons: "My status as elite plus was no considered to get a good seat or the chance to upgrade. The frequent flyer number from Aeromexico was not passed correctly to Delta aystem and it caused all these issues"
Cons: "The fact that my flight was delayed for the second time in the past week"
Pros: "Very late flight. Left on time, arrived 25 minutes early! Cabin crew were friendly and cared for everybody's comfort. They distributed a lot of extra munchies. They had real almonds instead of the usual 1/3 ounce peanuts, isn't that wonderful? Lights went off early and stayed that way so that the passengers could easily sleep through the flight. Uneventful flight, and therefore enjoyable."
Cons: "I had chosen 10C in the Comfort+ section of this MD90 plane. I did get my knee bumped more than once. I still like the seat because I can stretch my legs, but people should be aware of the bumping issue; it can be rather painful, and you do not get an apology."

Pros: "Amenities, seating, plane was newer and nice"

Pros: "Lunch was really good..yet,bread needs to be warm it adds desired comfort during the long flight."
Cons: "Breakfast need to include something else ,not just eggs. There should be an alternative for those who are allergic to eggs ,like me. Couple of hot wheat pancakes with Apple sause would do."
Pros: "I've flown on many different airlines since I was 10 years old and hands down this Lufthansa flight was the best and smoothest flight I have ever experienced. First of all, the plane was very comfortable and had good leg room. The flight staff were all extremely courteous and attentive. There was one point where I was reading in the dark and the crew member asked if I wanted the light turned on to read! Normally I don't sleep on flights, and the same crew member asked if I wanted ice cream since I don't feel like sleeping. The crew seemed to have this magic ability to make the flight more comfortable without the passenger having to even think about it, or try to ask for extra service. All of the crew were just very outstanding and organized throughout the entire flight, they were all generally very helpful and kind. By the time I got off the 14 hour flight, I didn't feel even the slightest bit tired or anxious, I was able to spend time with my friends in Budapest upon landing and stay out till 2 am without having to sleep or rest because the flight was so good."
Pros: "Champagne in economy class plus food on a 2.5 hr flight! I am a fan of LH."
Pros: "Sitting 1 hour in aircraft while the bypassing plane stopped to switch the crew because of limited working hours.... My flight was delayed for 1 hour and I missed my connection. On the plane, no one alerted I was rebooked and suggested to run to my gate as they "will be waiting for you..." No one at the gate 5 min after departure time, no one to help... VERY BAD, Lufthansa..."
Cons: "My connection was lost due to Lufthaza bad management for flying crew members time. I was rebooked on another flight several hours later with KLM. Arrived to my destination without my luggage as no one from KLM or Lufthansa was able to locate it. My vacation is ruined, in 3 days I'm flying to another country in Europe and don't even know if I will fly with or without my luggage. No one apologized at Lufthansa or suggested any accommodations... Very disappointed with services. Lufthansa used to be good, but I guess not anymore."
Cons: "Spicy food"
Pros: "Comfort, pleasant, and efficiency"
Cons: "Food seems an afterthought in an otherwise top-notch business"
Pros: "On time!!!!"
Pros: "The staff at check in was very helpful!! Great service!"
Cons: "You need to pay $35 per seat to reserve."
Pros: "Very accomdating crew"
Pros: "At a time when airlines are treating a plane like a flying bus, it's heartening to see Lufthansa's attention to detail for its customers both in terms of ontime departure, arrival and inflight hospitality is second to none."
Pros: "Entertainment, comfort"
Cons: "Food was not good. Too salty."
Pros: "Latest movies few included"
Cons: "The space is so small. For 11plus hours my body could not move. I never had knee problem but they were so sore. My feet and body got extremely tight mid way in the flight. This is my first and last flight in your airlines."
Cons: "The most unpleasant flight attendants we have ever had in our flying lives. Rude, condescending, treating passengers as if we are not human. Lufthansa should carefully examine their training."
Pros: "Crew was nice, doing the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "Awful food, small seats. Exactly same as economy."
Pros: "It was delightful to discover that Lufthansa serves delicious complimentary meals! So few US airlines do that. I also really liked the layout with the toilets downstairs."
Cons: "The crew was not friendly. The cabin temperature was set very high (~75f or higher) the entire flight without any individual vents for airflow, so that many passengers were uncomfortable and sweating during the flight. The food provided was poor quality (for the meal, I chose chicken which was boiled pieces of chicken without any flavor - I feed my cats better!). I will try and avoid flying this airline in the future at all costs."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was very nice except for the exceptionally tiny and narrow seats."
Cons: "Tiny, narrow seats."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Lost my bag. See previous comments."
Pros: "The flight itself was great... A bit of turbulence, but otherwise quite comfortable. Crew and captain were excellent."
Cons: "The plane arrived 2 hours late, causing me to miss a train from Marseille to Nîmes, and costing me money for an extra night's hotel that I hadn't planned (Marseille), plus wasting money for the night at the hotel that I HAD planned (Nîmes), plus the cost of having to purchase an additional train ticket for the following morning. The $7 voucher at the airport was nice, but honestly doesn't come close to making up for the cost and inconvenience."
Pros: "I liked how I was taken advantage of, knowing it will never happen again"
Cons: "After having my ticket Inadvertently canceled didn't like the lack of support in purchasing a new ticket through Luftansia's customer service agents that deals with consolidators such as Kayak. In the end I was left not be able to buy a ticket for three days after being quoted a specific price and charged about triple the rate originally quoted it initially quoted I wasted valuable time into my vacation along with an amazing amount of stress ."
Pros: "The whole flight went in time and all was well..."
Cons: "But when we got to Barcelona we had to wait 40 mins to get off the plane and another 2 hours to get our luggage. The baggage handlers went on strike."
Cons: "We booked our group of four with Lufthansa, paying $300 more than equivalent flights on competing airlines, specifically because our 20 month old daughter fits within Lufthansa's age, height, and weight limits for using the bassinet. We have reserved our tickets and the bassinet over two months in advance, paying $35 extra per seat for these reservations, and even got an email that specifically stated "bassinet confirmed". On the flight, when it came time to install the bassinets, the flight attendant came to us, took a look at our daughter, and said that she will not fit in the bassinet, that she is too tall, and too heavy, and suggested that we should have checked the limits for the bassinet before coming on the flight. When we inquired as to the actual limits, she could not provide any numbers, only said that she could see that our daughter is too big for it. When the family next to us got their bassinet, it became very obvious that our daughter would fit in the bassinet, and we pointed out that she was well below the height and weight limits published on the Lufthansa website. Only then did the flight attendant admit that there were other babies on the flight, and they only had four bassinets on the plane, despite having 11 slots where bassinets could be installed. Our reservation months in advance did not matter - we did not get the bassinet. As compensation, we were offered some Lufthansa miles, or 50 euros for in-flight duty free shopping. However, we lost close to 1000 dollars as a group when we chose to fly Lufthansa rather than a less expensive airline. We were very uncomfortable throughout the flight, having to hold my daughter in my arms for over five hours. We are are still very upset that the crew blatantly lied to us."
Pros: "Lufthansa always has good service and amenities"
Cons: "I believe it is Lufthansa's responsibility to move my seat if I am seated next to someone who is taking up more than half of my seat for an 11 hour flight"
Pros: "Great service. Smooth flight, take off and landing."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "The crew was great, food options were solid so was entertainment"
Cons: "I purchased online usage and was charged but wasn't able to access online services at all. I asked the crew if they could refund me but they were unable to help me out. So I was charged $25 for a service I was unable to use and unfortunately I was counting on being able to use the online service for work."
Pros: "I really appreciated the hostesses bringing around glasses of juice or water especially during the night . The selection of movies to watch was excellent. I liked a lot that the restroom was on a different floor and there was plenty of space outside. Thank you."
Cons: "The egg omelette for breakfast was not really tasty. The steward collected the earphones before we landed, a bit too early. I could have watched my movie 10 minutes longer."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and we were not sure to the last minute whether all our party members would be on the flight. Our seat arrangements were also cancelled."
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "Food was very bad"
Pros: "More seating space on short flight then long flight bigger plane?"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "We were in economy class. It looked like the seats my wife and I were in were smaller than the surrounding seats. The seat I was assigned was also more narrow than the one my wife was assigned. I am tall, and could not move my legs for the trip. Also, the seat controls were on the inside is the seat. I could not move at all without turning on the overhead light or screen."
Cons: "The buses to the planes had no ac. It was like a sauna. The plane was not ready for boarding so you were in the bus for 25 minutes. It was in the 90s in the bus before they opened the doors"
Cons: "Rude (American) passengers not keeping the "curtain down", when it was time to rest, and being very chatty. Also baby crying, but this is inevitable, it happened to all of us, when we had small babies."
Pros: "Nice crew, water waiting for me at my seat and other small amenities that made a big difference. Great entertainment system on board."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "New airplane"
Cons: "The front seat has sharp edges at knee level. Wen the front passenger recline his seat it killed my knees."
Pros: "I fly regularly between Germany and USA. Would rate this flight as the second best flight in recent years. Small details can make a difference."
Cons: "The breakfast that was served was not great. Blueberry muffin super sweet and canola bar with raisins.none odds which i would ever pick if I had any choice."
Cons: "It was late, we had connection to Berlin and we were in a hurry And forgot things on the plain. They didn't make arrangements to help us be on time for our connection. We had to run. My name is Dan Chevion. Can we get back the items we forgot on the plain?"
Pros: "Fast on ant off"
Cons: "Not enough hip or leg room which is somewhat usual, but recent flights with United are much better"
Pros: "crew was helpful, seats comfortable, leg space good, entertainment good. a good flight without incident. boarding and getting off plane went smoothly."
Cons: "vegetarian meal had no protein, just white rice. Vegetables were good. Breakfast meal was very light, almost all carbohydrate. Some protein would have been helpful."
Pros: "Prompt boarding and takeoff, good space, comfortable seats, good food."
Cons: "I actually lost money because of the misinformation -- was told there was a modification on my flight details and that I had to call the Lufthansa office. I called in and was never told that anything was wrong. I kept trying to check in online and got blocked at every trial... Cut a long story short, I showed up for my Lufthansa flight to only be told I didn't have the required visa for one of my layovers... I missed my flight, got no refund for it and got zero help in finding a solution to my problem. You could do better than that, Lufthansa."
Cons: "There was no indication at Kayak that there is a charge to pick a seat before the day of the flight. I understand premium choice, but this was for every seat reservation. The seats were not very comfortable."
Pros: "Excellent flight, crew, food and service."
Pros: "the communication was very clear, and the crew was very friendly"
Cons: "this flight delated almost 30 mins, but with clear communication. I just hope those people who need to transfer will make to the other flights."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and very accommodating. We were also very impressed by the plane itself. The seating was the most comfortable either of us has experienced on an overseas flight."
Cons: "Good for entertainment but the headphone insert in my particular seat would only play through one ear. Not a headphone issue, they worked fine in another screen. Inconvenient for a long flight."
Pros: "Overall, United in US gets a two rating. International flights get a four rating."
Pros: "The security line was short, at least."
Cons: "We arrived two hours early to the terminal, there was a giant line, that took over an 1 hour to get hour to get to the front of. Then when it came to checking my bicycle it was a giant ordeal that took over half an hour before we were able to go to security. They kept on saying I needed to do that ahead of time and that their systems were down. Checking a bicycle for me has never been a big deal with any other airline. We made he flight with out much time to spare."
Cons: "They sit us at row with 3 TVs and in order to watch we need to watch for 12 hours curved for 45 degrees. Please try to do this your self."

Pros: "Transportation of my pet with no issues"
Pros: "Crew was very good. Seating was bad"
Cons: "Bigger seats"

Cons: "The seats have been refurbished In the narrow size."
Pros: "Nothing good to say about AA"
Cons: "AA screwed up reservations by rescheduling flights by 3 hours earlier (done not once but two times) causing 6 hour layover. This plus an additional 2:38 delay on next flight made the journey horrible. Will never book an AA/BA flight again for intrnational travel."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times and I missed a connection in Dallas so I had to get a flight with Delta, but the staff was very helpful getting me that flight."

Pros: "The aircraft was perfect :)"
Cons: "The new basic economy fair. My tickets were booked before this happened and I was requested to pay my carry on"

Pros: "Boarding and flight was on time."
Pros: "The flight left on time, there wasn't a lot of fuss about overhead space and we arrived early."

Pros: "Every thing. I am not rating it as excellent only for the 'Maxim' : "There is always scope for Improvement""
Cons: "Nil. No complaints what so ever."
Cons: "air conditioning did not work well. heat was coming into the plane from the windows."
Pros: "The punctuality of the boarding, take off and landing of the flight!"
Cons: "When I came up to have a seat assigned, the representative could have given me a better seating, not necessarily a First Class ( as they were available AND I checked in as an Active Duty Army Officer) but instead assigned me a seat at the rear of the aircraft! Horrible, if that's how AA treats their dedicated service members!"
Pros: "Very nice, hot meal a bonus - didn't know we'd be given dinner :) Seats ok - leg room acceptable"
Cons: "Thought we were flying British Airways - even this survey says it's BA - went to wrong ticketing desk and was sent to American - had to let our friends in Germany know the change by email - worried they wouldn't get the email in the muddle of their night and they'd go to BA gate undead of American. It was a little disconcerting"
Pros: "Overall flight was great. Crew, pilot, flight attendants, boarding, everyone and everything was great. Water and orange juice was offered even for a 45 min short flight."
Pros: "Punctuality and clean plane"
Cons: "That I bought a ticket for British Airways and found out that American was my carrier to Dallas as well as Paris."
Pros: "On time, good food, good entertainment and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Missed connection flight because they were late taking off, stuck in Munich all day. Only some of us got our second ticket to begin with even though we were told to check in to both through AA. They did take responsibility and pay for our lunch though so there's that."
Pros: "Good food & movies."
Pros: "It was a good and comfortable flight and a nice crew allthough it was Operators by AA"
Cons: "The food is not overwhelming."
Pros: "People were nice about screwing us ocer."
Cons: "We boarded on time. But then we sat outside forever because apparently they had too much fuel. Then we left 40+ minutes late. Then when we got to Dallas our fate was taken. Then I missed my flight. Then they offered NO support. They would not pay for a hotel and I'm presently sleeping on the airport floor. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER AND I WILL NEVER FLY AMERICAN AIRLINES AGAIN."
Pros: "Flight staff was friendly."
Cons: "Flight got delayed. I was a little worried I wouldn't make it to the connecting flight."
Pros: "The seating was good."
Cons: "Even though the weather caused issues, i felt that we were treated poorly. I wound up having to sleep in an airport. Never had to do that before. There was no empathy for our situation whatsoever."

Cons: "The lack of leg space didn't know it was that bad."
Pros: "Flight much better organized, seat more comfortable"
Pros: "Clean, friendly"
Cons: "The first leg of my flight left an hour earlier than scheduled, and I was never notified. Fortunately I found out when I went to "check in" the night before, and was able to arrange for earlier transportation to the airport."
Pros: "Quick load, full flight, courteous crew."
Cons: "As the norm, American Airlines once again did not have their numbers prior to departure. Upon arrival American Airlines did not have a gate readily available for us. This caused a delay in arrival and a delay in departure. American Airlines is renowned for this type of treatment. I had hoped it would improve when US Airways had acquired them. Unfortunately, such is not the case. You can do better."
Pros: "I liked how the flight was on time and how the flight was not overbooked. Over the past year I have had ad experiences with flying so much so that I thought the airlines did not value its patrons schedules and plans; it was all about getting our money. But American Airlines has restored my faith in the Airlines. Thanks!!!"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Cons: "Flight from San Antonio to Dallas had an excellent entertainment selection and entertainment system, despite being an hour flight, but the flight to Madrid was far more lacking."
Pros: "There was entertainment on the flight"
Pros: "Boarded fast, left gate fast, crew great"
Pros: "Flight attendants were ok"
Cons: "I left my cellphone with a wallet case with all my important information including military ID in the seat pocket. American Airlines has NO BODY I can talk to to locate my device. I had to fill out a form online and now I am stuck waiting up to 30 days to find it."
Pros: "I like that the times American Airlines offered to get to my destination."
Cons: "The planes are not so clean and very old... These days it makes me more willing to pay extra to fly on a newer plane."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and plenty of room. Good food!"
Cons: "Flight was significantly delayed as a result missed my train"
Pros: "In flight experience was ok."
Cons: "It was difficult to learn gate information, was provided at the last minute, which is tough in a long airport like Munich. Airline few us into an airport that was the center of a political protest which was known at the time of takeoff. We should have been warned as it required 4 hours to leave the Barcelona airport, walking away from it 3 miles in the rain."
Pros: "crew was initially helpful but then did not help with our connection but might have been out of their control-would have been nice to know that there was no chance to make connection with the initial flight delay We ran all the way and still did not make it-too far and connection was too tight with having to go thru customs very grateful to the Luftansa attendant who helped us at the desk of the gate to find and book another connetion"
Cons: "more time between flight connections"
Pros: "Crew was good especially the young man. I paid an additional $78 for an aisle seat and to be away from the bathroom. They moved me two rows from the bathroom. All night the door opened and closed. Constantly people lined up and talking waiting to get in.No chance of sleeping .Man kicking my seat."

Pros: "Departed and landed on time; checked luggage returned in a relatively short period of time; crew pleasant; plane reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "In order to access the bus which took passengers to the plane required going down three flights of stairs and two flights up to the plane. This made carry on luggage and personal bag difficult."

Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The service and welcoming"
Pros: "Winter storm commencement in Chicago during take off didn't daunt the pros piloting this Lufthansa flight. Smiling, courteous service, good food and wine along with space to rest has made Lufthansa my new go-to for flying to Europe."
Cons: "Economy seats mean tiny unresponsive video screens. Playing a game of Mah-jong on the in-flight screen is nearly impossible. Bring your own tablet"
Pros: "Boarding process, including ground crew was good with customer service. Food was good and in-par with other airlines."
Cons: "Flight crew, including a few air-hostesses were very rude. Entertainment system and the played films were very dull. Plane was uncomfortable."

Pros: "It was excellent all way) thank you."
Cons: "Temp inside plane was freezing cold. Pilot was asked 3 times to adjust. People were bundled up, hugging themselves and had blankets over their heads to try to stay warm. After third request to pilot, the temperature was set to so hot people were sweating and complaining. Typical United Airlines crew who think they are driving a cattle car"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and professional . Announcements were spoken clearly. It was a nice flight to be on. You could tell everyone was doing a good job."
Cons: "Nothing everything was good."
Pros: "Staff did its best even understaffed"
Cons: "The delay, bad food (all spicy)"
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "First, our flight UA 194 was redirected back to SFO after 2 hrs of flight due to problem with weather sensor device or something of flight. Then we were cheated and provided with Economy class seat from FRA to MAA for the next day. We paid for full Business from SFO to India but our connecting flight was changed to Economy seat. Very very very poor and fraud technique from United crew. We are very sad about this and we will never ever take United or Lufthansa again. Never ever + we will request all our relatives to abandon these kind of cheaters."
Pros: "Food, entertainment"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable for economy class"
Cons: "Poor WiFi. Poor video. Very small seating"
Pros: "Mas o menos"
Cons: "En el manejo de mi maleta me rompierón una de las ruedas de la maleta."
Pros: "The crew we're very friendly and professional. They took the time to fix the plane instead of flying a plane that needed maintenance"
Cons: "My flight out of Houston was five hours late because of maintenance. This caused me to miss my connection. The rebooked connection was 5 hours after we landed and still my luggage did not make it. The rescheduled flight was supposed to arrive just after midnight, but because of lost luggage, I didn't get out of the airport until 2 am and missed my ride."
Pros: "Nothing in particular. The flight was "saved" by having a friendly fellow passenger sitting next to me. She was pleasant to talk to, but that had nothing to do with the services provided by United."
Cons: "Overall, I find United flights to Europe to be fairly unpleasant. Sometimes the staff can be nice. On this flight female staff with whom I interacted were nice, but the steward who was serving people near me seemed abrupt and largely uninterested in us. In fact he lectured an elderly woman about stowing her luggage for several minutes without realizing she did not understand him. The reason was she was Polish and did not speak any English. I had called out to him several times to tell him this, but he did not hear me. The seats on the flight were very cramped (I sat in 37G). By comparison, I found the seats in the Lufthansa flight I took from Munich to Tel Aviv to be much more spacious. In comparison to Lufthansa, I think United is a second class (or worse) airline."
Pros: "Attendants were kind and helpful The food and drink provisions were good"
Cons: "A small problem with my seat back screen"
Pros: "Good service and environment"
Pros: "Boarding and landing ahead of schedule"
Pros: "On-board WiFi was a nice touch, but redundant as there was no way to charge your electronic devices"

"Breakfast" consisted a stale, chewy croissant (which I believe I am still trying to digest a week later...) and yogurt. No USB port to charge electronic devices"
Cons: "Very cold"
Pros: "The flight itself was great. Good movies, professional crew."
Cons: "The whole seating process was a nightmare. They didn't assign seats and when I tried to call first they said wait until 24 hours in advance or pay $100 THEN when I tried to check in 24 hours in advance they wouldn't assign seats bc the first leg was operated by United. They then said United couldn't assign seats at check in - only at the gate AND THEN the said they couldn't assign seats for our second leg because it was operated by Luftansa. It was ridiculous added stress on our honeymoon and my husbands first cross Atlantic trip. Made me never want to fly Luftansa/United transatlantic again (and I have been a milageplus card holder so that's saying something)"
Pros: "Crew took special care of my guitar -- much appreciated."
Cons: "Small plane. Kept bumping my head when I got up."
Cons: "Couldn't reserve/request a seat. Assigned to me About 1.5 hours prior to boarding. Had to wait Around the gate. Should have told me I would not have any choice. Could have walked around. Got a middle seat. It was a long flight."
Pros: "Did get last seat in business class!"
Cons: "The seat assigned online not valid because of change of equipment. Did result in upgrade to business. Very happy outcome."
Pros: "The flight crew was very helpful and organised the connection between two flights very well under pressing circumstances when there was only 15 min between the flights and the boarding gates being in opposite ends of a big Munic airport"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 h, so we had to run through Munic airport for connected flight. Good sport, but rather tiresome."

Cons: "Long delay for maintenance. Barely made my connection in Munich."
Pros: "Window seat was very comfortable and nighttime views of San Antonio and Houston were beautiful."

Pros: "flight was ultra fast. landed half hour early. was awesome!"
Cons: "Being crammed on the tiniest playing on earth with super rude flight attendants. And the lady next to me was so big I had a half a seat."
Pros: "The entertainment is flight dependant. One flight had a personal tv monitor which is cool but you have to pay to watch it. The other had a thing where I could use my device and they had a decent selection but for some reason I kept being disconnected, the problem could have been my device but since I have never had that issue with the device before I blame united."
Pros: "It took 15 hours to get home"
Cons: "that it took forever"
Pros: "Everyone is pleasant and helpful. The wheelchair arrives promptly."
Cons: "The seats are small."
Pros: "The best part was the empty seat next to mine. A little extra room is a great thing."
