Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The help from the checking agent after we found out Lufthansa canceled my daughter and mine flys coming back home without any explanation and notification"
Pros: "Crew was professional, kind and capable. Everyone went smoothly and on time. The downstairs bathrooms were great: roomy, clean and FIVE of them so no waiting!"
Cons: "The food was just okay. A better choice of wine and more selection of spirits would be nice."
Cons: "Not much legroom and no tv’s on a 10-hour flight"
Cons: "I don't know why all airlines don't have a more orderly system for boarding by zones (like Delta). Lufthansa and Swiss both just have a mob of people blocking the boarding area and hindering people who shoud actually be boarding to get through."
Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "No proper wheel chair assistant and made passenger miss the flight. Airlines have to take extra steps to make wheel chair passengers to reach the gate safely and on time."
Pros: "Cabin crew and service"
Cons: "Left over 2 hours late and we missed our condo in Chicago and had to rebook and spend the night"
Cons: "Bought the premium economy on Lufthansa, but ended up on Eurowings. Food same as Economy, 1/2 the entertainment choices. Definitely not worth the money."
Pros: "Outstanding service from the flight crew. The food was even good. The flight crew comes around constantly with drinks, food, and just extras and we were seated in economy. Plus, they acted like they were so happy to be able to serve us. What a great trip. Love Lufthansa!"

Pros: "seats were decent size, smooth landing"

Pros: "Happy to watch the World Cup Final while the flight was delayed 2 hours on the ground."
Cons: "Before take off, I found a small brown bug that looked similar to a bed bug crawling on my arm. I took pictures of it and alerted a crew member. They replaced my pillow and said sorry...

In the end everything was okay but it was not a pleasant trip"

Pros: "Flight was grest"
Cons: "Very relaxing and smooth flight"
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "bad food"
Pros: "The food was terrible. Your seat space is exceptionally small. I am small but others of greater stature cannot really fit and then they encroach into my space. Makes for an uncomfortably long journey. Your attendants were most attentive."
Cons: "The food, food, food."
Pros: "Timeliness Politeness Good food and as much wine as desired A little more leg room would be nice but better than other airlines"
Pros: "The crew was very kind and made their beat efforts accommodate our requests or help us with the issues we experienced in our seats. I was also pleasantly surprised by the quality and taste of the food served during the flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat was not working. The crew was very helpful in terms of trying to fix the issue, but unfortunately the system was not fixed. The seats were difficult to push back. We tried several times to push back the seat for the passenger travelling with me, however the seat would not go as far as everyone else's. Unfortunately the flight was not as comfortable for her as it was for the rest of my party traveling with me. For such a large aircraft, Lufthansa should consider boarding economy by seat section. For example, starting with the persons who sit in the back first and then forward. It would speed up the boarding process and alleviate any lines in the aisles in the aircraft. Last but not least, my parties baggage was not transferred during our quick layover from Frankfurt to Krakow. Priority should be given to passengers whose final destination is not Frankfurt. We found out that our luggage's remained in Frankfurt when our names were called by baggage pickup in Krakow. The attendant who was helping us was very cold and treated us as of we were the ones who caused this inconvenience through his tone of voice, as well as his short comments. Lufthansa needs to work on their customer service in Krakow. We were rushed by the agent and it seemed like he wanted to get rid of us asap even though there was no line. We needed to understand where our baggage was and the options available to us, especially because our baggage was carrying important items for my sister in laws bacholerette party that night. We left not knowing when we were going to receive our luggage or if it would even make it to Krakow that night. We called the Number provided to us several times during the Day, however the line did not seem to be actively monitored by an individual. The website we were provided to track our luggage offered little to no insight on the whereabouts of our luggage. We finally found out that the luggage had arrived in Krakow and would be sent by carrier. The carrier arrived late in the evening, right before we were leaving for the bachelorette party thankfully. Better communication in these types of situations would greatly alleviate the stress one feels when their luggage is missing. Aldo surprised that the airline doesn't distribute a care package (I.e. toothbrush, paste, facewash) to passengers whose luggage was left behind."
Pros: "The efficiency and professionalism was impressive."
Cons: "The temperature on the flight was uncomfortanly warm. the Airbus planes do not have individual air jets at each seat which is a desirable feature. Therefore, the environment felt stuffy. It would also have been nice to have refills on coffe and hot tea, however, no one checked back with us after round one. The bathroom floor should also have been cleaned more frequently."
