Pros: "On time take off"
Cons: "They serve non-halal food with Muslim menu. They think hat non-pork meat means halal/zabihah. Non friendly flight crew"
Cons: "The plane was HUGE, too big. With such a big plane the crowd formed by the gate waiting to board was unmanageable. Also the giant plane felt like it was hard to maneuver during take off and landing. I would very much prefer a smaller plane. The touch screen in front of me was not always responding when I tried to tap the screen. The audio jack was also not working great; sometimes I did not have audio in my right earbud and I had to turn and fidget the plug. The earbuds provided by the airline did not even work when plugged into the screen, I had to use my own earbuds."

Pros: "Flying on a direct flight was nice. The food was good. Ordinarily the snack lunch is not good but the sandwich was quite good."
Cons: "The boarding is best if done by rows but this was just every one trying to board at the same time so it has a more negative effect on passengers."
Pros: "please see comments above for my previous flight excellent experience!!! I used to fly with KLM but with definitely check Austrian Airlines first for my flight needs from now on."
Cons: "Boarding on return flight was utter chaos and was not controlled properly. The crew was very pleasant and , in my opinion, could not have been any bertter."
Cons: "One flight was cancelled resulting in a 6 hour wait, the second flight was 2 hours late. Meat meals ran out quick resulting in a vegetarian only option for a lot of passengers"
Pros: "Excellent service on airplane, ample legroom in economy, the largest movie selection I've seen on a flight, delicious food. I had the vegetarian option and I was not disappointed."
Cons: "The boarding process at Vienna airport was unorganized and took longer than necessary."
Pros: "We paid extra for extra leg room. Exit row. Well worth Cabin crew very good and friendly"

Extremly tiring and turbulent 10 hour flight."

Cons: "Initially we were jammed into a gate area with all guests and it was absolutely horrible and not safe, especially with our kids."
Pros: "My husband's experience with their flight from Chicago to Vienna was amazing. Everybody helped accomodate him with our 15 month baby boy."
Cons: "The crew (check-in desk & flight crew did not put any effort to help accomodate us). They even asked us to do all the work in asking around. Squeezed us in the tightest place possible for travelling with our baby boy. Will not recommend your airline because of this!"
Pros: "More leg room than we had on Swiss Air from Chicago to Vienna via Zurich. In flight food was excellent. Staff was friendly."
Pros: "the crew was amazing."

Pros: "Easy travel nice plane."
Cons: "Not enough leg room for long flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was very nice. Service of drinks was very good. Snack and main meal served too close together."
Cons: "Flight was crowded. Boarding was mediocre & disorganized. I really dislike passengers being allowed to bring suitcases as carry-on luggage. Carry-on means carry on. If you cannot carry your bag by hand for extended time or has rollers, it's not a carry-on. Carry-on is a backpack or small valise not a suitcase with rollers. Boarding of aircraft needs to improve and be expedited."
Pros: "The flight was on time (actually arrived early). Everything was great, except for the seats and knee space, which was just ok - in line with every other company; that doesn't make it good. The entertainment unit was great, many options plus a charging USB port. Food was good; coffee was bad (instant) - is it that difficult to make good coffee on the plane? Crew was professional and efficient. Happy(ish) overall. Thanks."
Pros: "The girl next to me got this special food in actual plates and so forth-the food I think came from business class. Kind of upsetting that my food looked not even 20% of what she was eating."

Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, good selection of in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Crew did not come around very frequently with water throughout flight, mostly only during regular beverage service."
Pros: "Lufthansa is an efficient operation."
Cons: "1. The comfort in economy class was insulting and horrible. I am 6'3", 175lbs and was trapped in one uncompromisingly uncomfortable position for 8+ hours. Torture is a word that comes to mind. If I were a smaller sized person, 5'8" or less, perhaps this may be acceptable, but for anyone over 6'. forget it. You must pay loads extra to be given a respectable seat. I am hopeful that I don't develop a blood clot from this flight. This lack of room is a seriously dangerous situation for many people on long-distance flights. 2. The seat recline feature added further insult to the mix. Once airborne, the lady in the seat in front of me sent her seat into what was left of any personal space or legroom I had. The video screen on the setback in front of me was literally 6" from my face now. Several people who were also of taller size complained, one was so adamant about retaining his space that he fought verbally with the lady in front of him, and eventually a stewardess had to be called. My wife complained on my behalf, and was able to get the lady in front of me to reposition her seat, but eventually, I noticed it somehow found its way back to recline again. I know Lufthansa is not alone with this predicament, but something HAS TO BE DONE to fix this huge problem with air travel. 3. The food on the flight to Germany was way better than the return trip. The meal consisted of mushy carrots, greasy mashed potato-like side, and a piece of OK chicken smothered in 'Murican BBQ sauce. I was insulted. Lufthansa had been better than this in the past. Oh, and the dinner roll was so dry and crumbly, it could have been weeks old. The snack before landing was called pizza, but I wouldn't call it that It was a bunch of tasteless dough, a little bit of tomato like sauce and a smattering of cheese. I wish Lufthansa would stick to what they do best; German-influenced food. Be true to who you are. Most people I know love German food, and I always have looked forward to LH food selections. Not now."
Pros: "We had a very short connection as a result of a long delay in our flight from Athens to Munich. Lufthansa held the gate open and helped us get on board tom our flight to Chicago. The plane was big, roomy and the seats were comfortable. There were adequate number of toilets so people didn't have to stand in long lines. The crew was very friendly in an efficient way, not like in Asian airlines where the passenger gets coddled. I particularly appreciated the serving of water/juices every so often to stay hydrated."
Cons: "They could have made the transfer easier by having a trolley to move us instead of having us run through the airport. I am 70 and have had both knees replaced. While I can walk just fine, running was very difficult."
Pros: "Excellent overall."
Cons: "Got a little hot in the cabin"
Cons: "Plane closed the gate two hours before departing. Should have waited for passengers delayed by weather and lack of a sufficient ground crew."
Pros: "Boarding is efficient. Flight very smooth."
Cons: "great crew"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "An hour + delayed departure and arrival."
Pros: "The big deal for me was that I was upgraded (at no cost) to Premium Economy class. I enjoyed the extra leg room and the ability to lie back (further than in regular economy class). The free drinks were also a plus."
Cons: "The only thing I can remark upon is that because someone in front of you can lie back so far, it becomes difficult for the person sitting in the window seat to leave his or her seat without disturbing the person in front of him or her."
Pros: "THE FLIGHT LEFT ON TIME."
Cons: "LUGGAGE IS LOST. THE FOODS WAS NOT VERY GOOD."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "The shabbiness of the plane. The cramped space. The lack of overhead bin space. In fact, the space above my seat was full of suitcases of the crew. I had to find space somewhere else. If I had not been able to board early, I probably would not have found space."
Pros: "Plenty of legroom in main cabin"
Cons: "Video selection unreliable"
Pros: "It was my daughter's 16th birthday and one of the spunky crew members helped us to create a little celebration. That was very memorable! Otherwise the flight was late (which was OK, the captain kindly kept us informed), but the plane was clean and quiet. The bathrooms on the lower level provided a space to stretch, but as always, they get pretty dirty on a long-haul flight. Price was quite good. I always feel the flights originating from Europe are nicer than those originating in the US."
Cons: "The food was stuck in the past, roll, white cheese, white cake with sugary fruit, somewhat wilted small salad and a pretty greasy chicken dish with polenta and by that point, stewed veggies. I am not accustomed to eating like that and was disappointed (though hungry!). Not a whole lot of room in my seat, I'm 5'6" and slim, but at least the seats recline and glide forward a bit and the head rest bends to catch your head IF you can nod off. I appreciate the civility that still exists under stressful circumstances."
Pros: "Meals ok. Pillow and blanket nice."
Cons: "Crew stressed. Could not understand announcements. Rude response when questioned."
Pros: "While showing wear and tear, the business seats are great - comfortable with nice design"
Cons: "The automatic boarding system was slow"
Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff"
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "Flight did not happen went to frankfort"
Pros: "Leg room in Coach. Six bathrooms on a lower level relieved congestion and gave a place to stretch legs. WIne and cocktails included in meal. Crew was plesant."
Cons: "Munich airport: only a vending machine in the waiting area. Flight was delayed one hour and couldn't buy water if you had no coins."
Pros: "The flight attendants continuously offered water, which was appreciated. In flight entertainment options were excellent and worked well. Flight attendants were excellent. I liked the flight's downstairs toilets. They were decent size and I never had to wait in line. I like this design."
Cons: "No personalized air vents on this flight."
Cons: "food, entertainment"
Pros: "Great, solid and reliable service"
Cons: "Tight turnaround in Chicago"
Pros: "The movie options where not great."
Cons: "Movie options."
Cons: "Going through Chicago airport"
Cons: "I paid for a reserved window seat so I could sleep. The passenger next to me was such a large man his arms and shoulder came way over into my seat space and I had to sit in an awkward and very uncomfortable position twisting my back for the entire flight. I cannot believe I paid extra to be in this position. My back still hurts from being in that position for 9 hours. I was miserable the entire way. And I paid extra for this discomfort. The big guy was plenty comfortable as he took up my seat space and slept well. Not happy at all with the flight and how Lufthansa crams people into seats."
Pros: "Smooth landing in Chicago."
Cons: "The crew in my section near the rear of the plane was competent, but snippy. None seemed approachable. I contrast them with the Lufthansa crew from Toronto to Munich who were short-handed but so pleasant even though they were overworked due to some crew members not showing up. Lufthansa food is average at best. The central restroom area on the MUC to ORD flight became filthy. Aren't crew members supposed to police that area? Or are passengers supposed to bring rubber gloves to clean it halfway through the flight?"
Pros: "In some airlines, you experience a different standard from Europe to America, compared to standard from Africa. Luftansa did not compromise quality. The partner maintained the same. The booking from Kayak was excellent . The travel was seamless."
Pros: "Good customer service"
Cons: "The airline lost my luggage"
Cons: "Didn't happen. Missed it and got re routed thru United."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was excellent."
Cons: "The vegetarian breakfast."
Pros: "Upgrade to business class. Staff was accommodating"
Cons: "Seats were situated next to the bathroom"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "It was overbooked."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled. I miss two days of my vacation. I won't leave until this evening. The customer services is suck, waiting for almost 40m before someone answer the phone. Who ever answer the phone I had a hard time of understanding him."
Pros: "The service was absolutely amazing! Even though I was sitting in economy, I was offered something to drink before take off and at least 5-10 times throughout the 9 hour flight. The food was really good for airplane food and it was a nice touch to have an actual plate and silverware. When you're traveling, those little touches make a big difference. The entertainment was wonderful - the screen on the back of the seat was really responsive and had a wide selection. I watched three movies and played several games."
Cons: "My only criticism was the boarding process seemed a bit disorganized. I guess I'm used to boarding by zones or numbers. This was just sort of a free for all. But if that's my only criticism, that says a lot about the flight!"
