Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I could put my seat down, the button wasn’t working.."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Flight was canceled. No crew... Alternative: Eurowings via Newark. And then United to Detroit. A totally wasted day..."
Cons: "I was traveling with my 5 and 10 year old kids. Lufthansa got us three seats in three different locations. When I asked to help us get seats together flight attendants told us that I should ask passengers if they could switch seats. Apparently Lufthansa staff doesn’t ask passengers to do it."
Cons: "First leg was delayed out of Belgrade so I missed the connection to Washington"
Pros: "Brand new very nice/comfortable planes. Great routes and flight departure/arrive times. Really great value."
Cons: "They’re a budget airline so they nickel and dime you for food and beverage. They are not a member of “sky team” so if they have a flight delay or cancellation they will not book you on another airline."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and the entertainment was great. I had a wonderful experience."
Cons: "Perhaps meals. Maybe more options."
Pros: "Flight crew was great and entertainment system was good but needed reset a few times . Seating not so much."
Cons: "Sitting at the entrance of the bathrooms and was forced to move seats because traffic standing in front of me and tripping over me became ridiculous."
Cons: "Gate changed ast minute so we had to walk a long way to get to it with 3 kids. Airplane with no entertainment at all. Also the worst was getting to Beirut without 2 of our bags. We got one of them 1 day later and the second 5 days after. When we got the second bag few of our things were gone."

Pros: "On time flight, good service."
Cons: "Booked with SAS, had to check in with Lufthansa, had a cbange,which required SAS again!"
Cons: "Seat in front was broken (did not hold in place reclining) and my seat was broken too. I was able to change seat but 2 seats broken in consecutive rows is not good as it makes you think what else may be broken and what kind of accidents could occur if seats are not even checked by crew."
Pros: "Lufthansa has it all together and knows how to fly. I recommend to everyone!"
Pros: "The staff is on point classy folks the stewardess, are very nice and and prompt."
Cons: "The food is terrible extremely bland and no flavor. Needs to maybe be revamped"

Cons: "There was no update on the status of our connecting flight. The pilot gave an update of other flights except for ours but it caused a bit of confusion. Some people even had to missed there flights altogether! Lufthansa, from the 4 times I have flown with them always seems to be late with no sense of urgency. Ultimately after arriving in Venice, I get an email that my bags did not make it, yet I was told by the boarding agent that the plane was still loading our bags."

Cons: "Food was Terrible, couldn't eat the veg option and the TVs kept freezing"
Pros: "Online confirmation"
Cons: "My seat assignments were changed and we were at the end of the plane next to the bathroom. I know I didn't put those. I don't like the fact that you have to pay for baggage and there is no food provided other than a drink and some really poor substitute even for peanuts. Southwest at least allows you to have a free baggage. It's not the fault of the pilot but it also is very bumpy. The flight crew was fine and it's just the uncomfortable aspects of having my seat assignment changed and the extra charges for anything that makes it comfortable."
Pros: "Wi fi movies"
Cons: "Tiny seats. I'm 6'1" and 225. All passengers need more elbow and leg room."

Pros: "Average experience. Mostly pleasant enough."
Cons: "United changed our flight with No chance to object. Then reassigned us to separate seats. We asked to be moved next to each other. We were repeatedly and rudely dismissed 3 times, at 3 different levels, as if we were in the wrong to ask. If not for the kindness of a fellow passenger we would not have flown together. Very poor hospitality training."
Pros: "The check in process was very fast and efficient"
Cons: "Terminals were a bit far a part"
Pros: "Nothing, worst flight I've ever had."
Cons: "Dried throw up on the floor in front of my seat.disgusting. SO MANY FLIES IN THE CABIN!!! Crew seemed like they hated their jobs, were NOT attentive. wasn't cleaned at all. Plane smelled. Charge port didn't work. Tray was extremely dirty. It was the worst flight I have ever had and is making me dread flying United back home."
Pros: "Nice cozy seat, but seatbelt was about 6" shorter than most planes-wouldnt fit a medium-large person."
Cons: "Paid a lot for an upgrade, and our bathroom was out of order, the stewardess was snippy, and my expectations were less than met."
