Cons: "The space between the seats is very small, and the seats recline very far, I found myself a bit too tall to fit in them comfortably, as even reclined my neighbors seat was nearly pressed against my nose. My much shorter girlfriend did not have this problem, and slept through the whole flight. SWISS only has one or two check in agents at LAX, and the wait was about 3hr to process the 300-odd passengers on our 777. I know they're only running a flight or two a day from LA, but I am sure there's a speedier and more efficient way to check us all in."

Cons: "Food and seats"
Cons: "The in-flight snack - choice of two disappointing sandwiches."
Pros: "Great crew. Great seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by half an hour. Mainly due to limited carryon space. During check in we offered to check in carry on luggage, but were told it would be an additional cost! If they would have checked it in that would have saved 15 minutes easily"

Cons: "Nothing everything was great!"
Pros: "It was really nice having the bassinet for our little one."

Cons: "No WiFi, seats had no cushion"
Pros: "Boarding pricess"
Cons: "Plane was very cold. We had the last row of seats which meant the flight attendants were making a tremendous amount of noise behind us for the majority of the flight. Crew was not friendly at all. They were more interested in the other crew members than the guests."
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."
Cons: "Food quality"

Cons: "See previous comment. Airline service needs to be vastly improved."
Cons: "You lost my luggage !!"
Pros: "Crew was hospitable and flight was clean."
Cons: "We paid extra to have a bassinet as we were traveling with a baby. The entire row (a family) behind us was very sick, coughing, sneezing, and blowing their noses the whole flight. As we were concerned for our daughters health, we asked the flight attendants if we could lmove to the bulkhead that was open at the front of the plane. They wanted to charge us $500 EACH to move, even though the seats were open. One of the flight attendants even commented how terrible it was for our baby to have a row of sick people behind us, yet they refused to move us. Fast forward, our daughter ended up getting sick during our trip to Florence, and now my husband is sick. As such, we’ve had to miss out on things during our vacation. It would not have been difficult to move us to empty seats in the front of the plane, so we could use the bassinet we paid for. This small gesture would have made our flight and our trip much better."
Pros: "The environment was very nice. Relaxed and roomy"
Pros: "The business class area was spacious"
Cons: "Crew is too curt... they could use a little more smile"
Pros: "I love the fact that the flight arrived on time and there were no delays. I can say our time was respected by the airline."
Cons: "There can be a better range of entertainment on the flight, and flying Lufthansa their isn't too much food variety"
Cons: "We were about 20-30 minutes late taking off, then we sat on the runway for about 20 minutes. This made it physically impossible to clear customs and go through security requirements at point of entry US in order to make connecting flight."
Pros: "On time-well organized!"
Pros: "Staff and flight were great. We were surrounded by kind of rude flyers. They complained when my husband moved the seat back. And they were just standing in the aisle most of the time. Person in front of me stretched her arms over the seat so her hands were dangling in front of me and fingers in my screen. I know we were in coach, but maybe another inch of separation would be nice for such long flights."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "1. Good choice of movies. The entertainment recommendations by airlines were well thought of. 2. Crew and service was one of the best. They timely came and offered juice and water. 3. We were well informed when flight had to make few rounds in the air before landing."
Pros: "Your staff is professional and extremely smart, well versed in many languages. Keep up the good work!"
Cons: "Seat size and spacing is at an absolute minimum level even for small people."
Pros: "Excellent, travel only with LH"
Cons: "The plane was a very noisy on take off."
Pros: "New planes but staff not friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Definitely need to increase food budget and quality. Compare with Emirates about same fare much better food and drinks."
Pros: "Decent choice of entertainment options, though the selection of more recent titles was limited, food was fine for airline food. The crew was, as always on Lufthansa, pleasant, courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Flight left 20 minutes late"
Pros: "Although the departure was a little bit bumpy, the snack was tasty!"
Cons: "Very bad customer experience, the seat are very uncomfortable, and they stole money from my hand bag after sending it to the plane cargo"
Pros: "I like the service, friendly flight attendants. Flight was punctual, food was good."
Cons: "I don't understand the boarding process with Lufthansa. Lufthansa does not board by zone but they let everybody board at the same time. The seats in economy class are not wide enough."
Pros: "crew was nice and that we arrived safe"
Cons: "super crowded flight with many crying children food was bad and not enough"
Pros: "Great food and nice to be offered wine with dinner and after dinner drink"
Cons: "Could not have been more uncomfortable on this long flight. I am a normal size/weight person who practices yoga and if I was miserable, I can't imagine others who are larger or not in great shape. Those seats are like being in solitary confinement...but with 200 other people. Ugh."
Cons: "Fell asleep and didn't get any food, even though the cart was 1 row behind me when I woke up"
Pros: "That was the best airline meal I've ever eaten. It was a lightly curried chicken. Outstanding. Extremely fast boarding. Boarded entire airplane in less than 15 minutes. Nice selection of movies and audio. All of which you could stop, pause, fast forward, and rewind."
Cons: "No reading lights. No attendant call button I could find. Not much air volume. That pesky lack of leg room. Short seat belts."
Pros: "Lufthansa always does an excellent job, even with a gate change."
Pros: "Lots of movies"
Cons: "£20 for unlimited wifi. Ridiculous"
Cons: "Seats too small."
