Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was very warm and friendly"
Cons: "The experience in the Frankfurt airport was terrible! We had arrived from Rome with an hour between landing and boarding. When we were directed to security at Gate Z, there was a huge mob of people, not really in lines. We didn’t know what we were waiting for or where to stand, but we and others around us were very worried about missing our next flight. There was no Lufthansa representative to help. Finally someone directed some of us to a long roundabout back way to Gate Z security. We did get to our gate in time for boarding, only because it had been delayed. Then we sat in the plane for over half an hour. Altogether, it took off more than an hour late, so we missed our flight from Chicago to Minneapolis."
Pros: "In general, everything was ok aboard the plane."
Cons: "The plane was supposed to leave Lisbon at 5:00 a.m. but because of computer problem it left at 5:50, a delay that caused everyone to scramble to get to their connecting flight or even miss it."
Pros: "Service was good. Flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "The departure area at terminal 1 YYZ was crowded and not the most comfortable experience"

Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Never seen such a large streaming movie library. Never seen live stream at seat from cameras (3) outside the plane."
Cons: "It was not clear this was a no-checked-baggage flight, seeing as I specifically searched with flights with luggage. I chose Lufthansa's flight counting on the fact that international flights always allow one checked bag. I had to pay on that way here. I"ll have to pay on the way home."
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: "Sandwiches seeved"
Cons: "Plane was 1/2 hr late due to computer issues"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. My seat was near the front of the plane but the crew directed me to enter at the back of the plane. There were people entering from both the front and the back, meaning people were stuck trying to get past each other in the tight aisle. It was difficult to find space in the overhead compartments for carryon luggage due to people bringing too much stuff - the crew should have stepped in and helped. The food was a bad chicken sandwich with condiments that I could not eat."

Pros: "Good plane and service"

Pros: "Everything!! Flight was great!!"
Cons: "Had difficulty walking up and down stairs to plane."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Attentive and respectful of people (which did notified on the Lufthansa leaving US for Munich). The crew has a tough job at all hours of the day, but passengers as clients are just people cramped for 8 hrs and trying to enjoy their time as well,and this crew from Munich to US seemed to get that."
Cons: "The seats in economy are extremely close (front to back) for short people leg room is fine, for general height (5'4" women; 5' 10" men) and above it is unhealthy for a 6 -8 hr flight."

Pros: "Very comfortable sleep Crew attentive"
Cons: "Food not worth the first class ticket"
Pros: "Awesome crew and service! I would highly recommend flying with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Our first flight was late. We were met at the gate immediately after landing and were brought individually and directly to our next flight behind the scene, including passport control. Excellent."
Cons: "I wish Lufthansa would find a way to create less trash. Too many small plastic cups are used. Proved refill options rather than new cups."
Pros: "Unfortunately not much, although I have always had good flights with this airline in the past and will use them again for a direct flight to Germany. I guess it was just a bad day for them."
Cons: "Flight was three hours late leav ing due to a mechanical issue. We sat on the plane while it was being repaired and refilled. I was too hot the whole flight..I think it's the design of the ventilation system on this particular plane. The person by the sunny window stifles. Food was about as bad as it can get. Then I was offered coffee and got tea. Crew never smiled. My headphone had a loose wire so the sound went in and out. Not like past Lufthansa flights."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "I am disabled and we called the 24 hours in advance as requested to book seats with more leg room, accommodation for my autistic son's service dog, and special meals for my two children. None of these things were done as were booked even when presented with confirmation number provided by the central booking office. To top it off my daughter is allergic to peppers and her allergen free meal contained peppers."
Pros: "I liked that they passed out hot towels and how often they came by with food and drinks! Every time I started to get thirsty they came by with drink service! The temperature was great and we had comfy chairs that made napping easy. The pullout tablet for games and movies was also a great surprise"

Cons: "Almost no legroom to speak of so very cramped for a long flight."
Cons: "Second baggage charges"
Cons: "The gate printed on my ticket was not the gate the plane departed from. Not only was it not, but there was no announcement or warning this would happen. I only realized because 15 mins after the scheduled boarding time I went to find out what was going on. There should have been an announcement."
Cons: "Engine malfunctioned. Flight delayed 7 hours. All connections missed. Spent night in marginal hotel in Frankfurt."
Cons: "Waited for 5 hours, and then rerouted to Houston"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Boarding and deboarding takes too long. If you H‑E‑B a full flight in Covid, social distancing is a joke while deboarding the plane. It was a waste of time."
Cons: "First flight delayed 30mins due to crew rest issues."
Pros: "Transportation of my pet with no issues"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "First flight delayed for mechanical. Put on another flight. About to take off and ground for two hrs on the tarmac. No refreshments offered on either. The only thing they did was tell us we had the right to de board after sitting in silence for 1.5 hrs. I wish I could say this is not the norm for American Airlines but they are 5/6 in the past two months for being late and having mechanical issues"

Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't working on this plane"
Cons: "The plane to Guatemala was the worst plane I've got in on"

Cons: "Hot crowded late horrible"
Pros: "Attentive crew, generous drinks"
Cons: "I am not crazy about this plane. I had flat beds, but the ones that face each other in an awkwardly intimate way. Also miss the places to store the things I might need/want on the flight. All I had was the little drawer."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "the movie selection was quite nice"
Cons: "I have to run to get my connection flight"
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."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and pleasant"
Cons: "The aircraft was tiny and we were delayed"
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: "Smooth takeoff and landing. The seats were comfortable for a 3 hour flight."

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: "On time, staff at gate and on plane friendly and courteous."
Cons: "No plug for electronics. Seats crowded with heavy person next to me."
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: "Flight was on time"
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"
