Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Security in Frankfurt - long lines"
Pros: "Flight departed on time. Crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Boarding seem to be chaotic, no boarding by group or seat number."
Cons: "Will never use Lufthansa again"
Pros: "As previously stated hated having to go through security again"
Cons: "Well,my whole trip was an adventure! Problem with my checked in bag, so i had to pay 22 pounds extra to fit it in a connection flight and now i have to send receipt to get the refund. On my way back, there was a delay, so i missed the flight and the checked in bag"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The seating was ok but dirty floors"
Pros: "Very Organised and punctual"
Pros: "Pilot kept us informed throughout the flight."
Cons: "Onboard services."
Pros: "Everything except delay"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Meals and entertainment"
Pros: "Free drinks"
Cons: "Plane land on time"
Pros: "It was not immediately apparent that boarding was in a completely different terminal which was accessible by train, so this lack of info could have cost me arriving in good time as I thought I had sufficient time. I aldo found ground staff at the customer service desk very unsympathetic and unhelpful when I asked for assistance on grounds of ill health. They were quite condescending ."
Cons: "Ground staff poor customer service"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, great seats in economy with lots of legroom."
Pros: "The flight was adequate."
Cons: "Sandwich was extremely unappetising and there were no hot drinks. The worst thing was that in transiting from the SAA flight to the Lufthansa flight we were obliged to go through security which seems unnecessary. The security staff were awful. Bullying, rude and totally unsympathetic to the fact that having brought water from the first plane to the second plane we had to either drink it or throw it away. One guy in particular, a tall greying man evoked the worst stereotypes of brutal secret policemen. Perhaps he formerly worked for Stasi or he was having testosterone problems. Totally unacceptable behaviour."
Cons: "1hr 20 minutes late"
Pros: "great over all experiance. Don't let the other negative reviews put you off"
Pros: "The Lufthansa app provides updates on plane status and gate number, etc."
Pros: "Did manage to get priority transfer which I requested from Dubrovnik but was told. “We do not do those”"
Cons: "Rest of the flight was bearable nothing write about. Typical cheap alow cost flight"
Pros: "The change in seat to middle seat, different row for my wife and I was enough for me to think again about a ticket with you"
Pros: "I especially like the comfortable seats with plenty of legroom. The flight was on time - perfect!"
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and this is consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The salami sandwich provided was actually very good."

Cons: "Absolutely perfect."
Pros: "Great service. Friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "I don’t like the configuration of the biz class seats. They are in a row vs in pods. Not as private as other configurations."
Pros: "The staff were all super helpful and friendly! Pleasure to fly with!"
Cons: "4/4 flights with involuntary stop-overs were delayed, causing 4 panics and 2 missed flights. Given their proclivity for busing passengers to distant planes in Herman efforts, a 50-minute allowance for changing planes, when added to the frequent Kate departures, is just not sufficient. They should acknowledge it and sell only flights that allow for 80-90 minutes in the airports that are so woefully managed (eg, Frankfurt and Munich). It’s back to BA for me!"
Pros: "the on time scheduled departure"
Cons: "the long complicated walk to terminal"
Pros: "All the staff were friendly and the complimentary food and drink snacks was lovely."
Cons: "Our flights were delayed both on the way there and back"

Pros: "Usual good service for economy class on this airline"
Cons: "Refusal to board as our flight was a few minutes landing"

Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff, even though a bit bossy, but that's the German way (which I am too)."

Pros: "787 seat spacing (a UA plane, not LH)"
Cons: "Took first available train , arr. Freising at 9:50. Arrived at Terminal 2 by bus ca. 10:25. I am handicapped and a slow walker, so I got to departure floor ca. `10:40. Waited in line at self-serve check-in; found out that it does not have ability to process numbers (for US address). Attendant was not helpful and nasty. She told me me to go to the regular check-in line, where I waited another 45 minutes. None of the 3 "help" personnel standing around when approached managed to tell me that there was a special counter for handicapped persons. The one at the express self-check-in refused to give me her lasst name or any form of ID (first name Sophia). After waiting an additional 15 minutes for a wheelchair, I was deposited in a waiting area, where a second wheelchair arrived after another long wait. Told me I might not make the plan (I did). Overall a very unpleasant and nasty experience. With the exception of the very nice lady (Mrs. Ilser?? ) who checked in my luggage, none of the other 3 persons at the express and regular check-in spoke decent German or English, and none was helpful (Go there, wait!!!) Barely made the plane in MUC, Heathrow turned out much better than the touted German efficiency. Please forward to Lufthansa customer relations. Dr. W. Hartwig"
Pros: "Check in process was simple and efficient. The crew on the plane were polite and friendly. Flight arrived early."

Pros: "Food was surprisingly good. Smooth ride could have been just good weather, but it was nice. We got in early!!!"
Cons: "Legroom was ok for me because I'm short. Others may have needed more."
Pros: "Great time. It was one of the best flights I have ever taken."
Pros: "Perfect t"
Pros: "The staff were friendly."
Cons: "Bag drop was unnecessarily slow with long processing lines. The gate area and on-boarding process was a zoo. Business Class seats (opposing design) were spartan and relatively uncomfortable. My upstairs 50B seat viewed directly into the wash room which made sleeping impossible. Food was not good. Overall, this is the weakest Business Class experience of recent memory especially for a newer wide-body aircraft."
