Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "One cookie with tea is not enough at this time of day! Especially if there had no chance to eat dinner before the flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Maybe not have my luggage lost and get rebooked to a later flight for no reason"
Pros: "Flew Business Class with miles program (United). Lufthansa always gives good basic flight experience. Watched two movies so saved some time at home. Lounges are getting better every time I fly. They are especially good, understandably, in Frankfurt."
Cons: "Nada. They get the job done."
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: "Tv screens, free beverages, frequent service"
Cons: "The single most cramped and uncomfortable flying experience of my life. The chair in front of me recliner lined to 4 inches in front of my nose. Couldn’t move legs or arms for 10 hours because it was so tightly packed. I couldn’t believe it was legal to fit that many people that closely together."
Pros: "My seat was next to bathrooms when everyone start using it start smelling too much very uncomfortable sitting there. Food chicken was very salted, they run out of drinks 10 hours flight dinner served at begging no snacks or anything till 2 hours before landing"
Cons: "At least air fresheners in bathrooms or something better so passengers can sit comfortably"
Pros: "Lufrhansa is a fantastic airline"
Cons: "The seat pitch and width were too small."
Cons: "Passport control and security for connecting fights made the connection hell, also walking 10 miles to the gate"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Movie choices were great! The crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, but that's a problem with every airline."

Pros: "Good plane and service"

Cons: "On this flight only, the toilets had a slite smell. Usually German bathrooms are an example for the rest of the world to follow in cleanliness."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Rating and bad customer experience shared on web...."
Pros: "Staff were nice and friendly."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. The seatback was not clean, and the tray table was stained. The 9-hour flight did not have any USB ports or outlets for charging. The touchscreen did not work well, and my seat would not move forward or back without me pushing or pulling it. This"
Pros: "On time Boarding was convenient"
Cons: "Food Seats"
Pros: "That was the most comfortable flight I have ever had. Famous German standards of excellence. Everything was just as it's supposed to be. Punctuality, politeness, order - just perfection. Thank you for such a great treatment!"
Cons: "Crew was not nice at all. They would skip us along the way while serving others, or even drop ice on us, and never said sorry once (instead, they would say it's only ice, or if I want 2 since they skipped me already twice when serving tea unlike the passengers around me on both sides). We paid nearly $6k for the 3 of us, but the crew made us feel as if we paid nothing. The entertainment system did not work well, and most of the time the movies refused to play. We were always suggested to restart, and were not even given free access to internet as an alternative. No one ever apologized for anything in the entire flight, it felt like this flight was a favor."
Pros: "The crew was extremely responsive, inviting, and constantly walking about the cabin to see if passengers needed juice or water. The boarding, for such a large flight, was pretty smooth."
Cons: "The small screens for entertainment need to be updated. It took mine a few minutes into the flight before I could access all of the entertainment options. Additionally, the touchscreen was very difficult to navigate, as it jumped between non-responsive and too sensitive throughout the flight. Furthermore, the headphone jack should be updated, so that passengers can use their own headphones without an adapter. The headphone audio setup at my seat did not work very well."
Pros: "Flight went smoothly boarding was a little delayed."
Cons: "Getting to gate 10 minutes after boarding time and no one had boarded yet."
Cons: "Most of it"

Cons: "Leg room was less"
Cons: "Terrible food and atrocious crew staff -- impatient, rude, unhelpful and racist. Unacceptable to give kitkat and sweet offerings for kids meals both times. Zero nutrition and terrible for children. Adult meals were equally unpalatable. Aircraft was also older and not in the best condition."

Pros: "The view - flying low over the northern extremes of Canada was superb. Thanks to the pilots etc."
Cons: "The flight was late arriving at Frankfurt. I requested a notification to my connecting flight. Crew member frowned, turned away and in formed me, "We don't do that". I ran to the Connecting Lufthansa flight and barely made it on time."
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "The boarding process made it easy to find my seat and get settled in."
Cons: "My seat back didn’t recline. But the one in front of me did. So I was penned in."
Pros: "The staff and food was great!"
Cons: "Seats are very close. Not comfortable when neighbors are big and fake up my space!"
Pros: "The crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Fro dinner the quanty was very little. I weigh barely over 100 lbs, and l don't eat very much. Still even for me there wasn't enough, so I got hungry after a few hours. For breakfast the egg was rubbery. It was disappointing."
Pros: "waited for us to get to gate"
Pros: "Our attendents were clearly focused on our needs. Efficient and still very human and kind. A real treat."
Cons: "Seats recline too much. When the person in front of you reclines his/her seat, you feel like you're in a tunnel with the seat back just inches from your face. However, the flight attendant was very kind and asked passengers to lift seats for the main meal, which was very nice."
Pros: "Everything! Excellent stewards too!"

Cons: "Few choice of movies"
Pros: "Thank you for the great experience!"

Cons: "Everything. No compensation given either"
Pros: "Lufhansa did a great job. During flights, everything was good."
Cons: "Security check in Frankfurt was terrible, violating all human rights in every possible way! Please don't tell me that it is for passengers safety; such a humiliation cannot be justified by any reason! Since Lufthansa uses this airport for the most of their flights, I would not fly with this company anymore"
Pros: "yes. It was perfect."
Pros: "Not much to say here. It was a short flight, and it went smoothly."
Cons: "I’ll say the same thing about almost every flight I have, and this is mostly for the airlines. People might fly more and pay a bit more if you give us more room. Being crammed into a tiny seat with a bunch of strangers is never pleasant. Same in this flight. Nothing terrible, just the usual. Also, to the other passengers, sit down until it’s your turn to exit. What is wrong with you that you can’t sit five more minutes? Be polite and let the people in front of you go first, let them have room to grab their bags instead of having your elbows in their face."
Pros: "All was super!"
Cons: "All was great!"
Pros: "Everything except the delay"
Cons: "No delays, took bag crew forever to load the plane, they were extremely late....waited over 35minutes"

Cons: "Baggage was lost and was delivered 2 days later."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Flight was late"
Cons: "There was a sceen right before my eyes telling me how much time of the flight was left. Even if I wanted to be unaware of the information I could not because as I mensioned it was right before my eyes. I was aware of almost every minute of this flight....found it hard to let go and just let time pass"
Cons: "airBaltic has a terrible luggage policy for musicians. They make you pay extra if you want to bring a musical instrument on board, even a violin which fits easily into the overhead bin. It is honestly discriminatory. Will not be flying with them again."
Pros: "Modern airplane"
Cons: "Long delay on first flight leg Staff provided little help with transfers, made us run through airport but then decided to close the next flight anyway without the transfer passengers Next flight offered was 9 hours later, only offer was a 10EUR meal voucher - ridiculous"
Pros: "the flight started at time. the attendant were fine. but i consider this flight not as a cheap flight. therefore, it should be possible, so early in the morning to offer a coffee at least."
Cons: "the experience on board should be improved, particularly when the flight is not different from regular airlines in terms of cost"
Pros: "staff were polite, helpful, and efficient"
Cons: "super small plane... had to climb a very narrow staircase into the plane... overhead bins couldn't accommodate much of anything... we weren't warned this in advance"
Cons: "Abigail in MLA (Luqa Intl Malta), one of the sassiest and unhelpful agents I have met. Ask for payment for baggage, does something with my credit card- then tells me I need to go to another desk to pay. So inefficient. This on top of her and her gate buddy screwing around at the desk throwing things at each other. Professionalism is not here. To top it off, the plane sat on the tarmac for 40 minutes and we just about missed our connection. Dirty plane too, gum stains on carpet and dirty seats. Will not fly with these clowns again."
Pros: "If water was free it would be better. Other than that everything was fine"
Pros: "The plane was very clean and new. The crew who worked this flight were most friendly, professional and quite articulate in three languages including the captain. I highly recommend them."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing. All was good"
Cons: "They delayed our flight from Gatwick to Riga with no information given to passengers. Many of us had a connecting flight with Air Baltic from Riga to Helsinki- which we asked if they will wait for us, the crew member said because the flight was also with Air Baltic, they will wait for us. We got there 10 minutes before take off, and the gate has already closed. Furthermore, we got to the Air Baltic counter, we were given 5Euro meal vouchers even though we will be staying at the Riga airport for 9 hours. Also they gave us terrible customer service attitude, which we definitely do not deserve after being delayed, and causing so much trouble on their behalf. Definitely do not recommend flying with Air Baltic again. I've never been this angry with any air line."
Cons: "We were told upon check in that there was a charge to check in. I have never heard of such rubbish in 43 years of air travel. We were told we could check in online but we only had 4 minute in which to do it. We were charged €150 for 5 people. The check in Sgent was sour faced as well. Once aboard the plane (a nice new aircraft) we found the stewardesses sour faced as well. Overall not impressed by air Baltic!"
Cons: "Charging 30 Euros to check in at the airport is lunacy."
Cons: "on the website i ordered and payed for a meal, and automatically it went to the last and the shortest leg of the flight. it did not ask which leg i was interested in. so i phoned their customer service to get this fixed, they said they cannot fix it and closed the phone on me. on the website is said that from israel you cannot do advance internet checkin, and when i arrived at the checkin they said that i should have done this advanced check in, and since i didn't i need to go to their ticket office and pay a penalty of 35$ per passenger. there also was no warning on the website of any such penalty. i will never fly with them again if i can help it."
Cons: "This is an airline that has perfected the art of nickle-and-diming customers. One example: I asked for a glass of water. The smug flight attendant told me, “We only sell bottled water,” with a look that dared me to complain."
Cons: "We had to pay for 3 pieces of luggage, including my hand luggage. It came to about $150 dollars. When i booked the flight, it did not indicate anything about this extra change so be ware of this. The flight itself was quite inexpensive."
Pros: "Professional appearance"
Cons: "Extra $ for the seat (quite absurd) and 40 Euros for a check in luggage."
Cons: "No food or entertainment."
Cons: "paying for water!"
Cons: "No fee food or beverages at all. Attendants were very pleasant. Since this is an economy airline there reallly is no complaint. Our flight was full and boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "Who charges for coffee, jeez"
Pros: "The equipment used for the trip to latvia. the cs300 was superb and I enjoyed my seat. It was comfortable. The boarding was quick and efficient. spacious and quite lovely. the food was ok . i enjoyed the grilled pork."
Cons: "the customer service rep stopped only me, the only black man travelling from riga to russia and was scrutinizing my passport for some long agonizing minutes. My russian visa is in the passport and updated and quite visible to see on the third page of my passport and being from Grenada I am able to travel to latvia visa free for up to 90 days. I stood there whilst others walked past me and went to the aircraft. that sucked. may 09 2017 at around 9 am."
Pros: "Moved up to First class section."
Cons: "No refreshments"
Pros: "Things moved along fairly well, especially once I was in Riga. The hour layover stressed me out because I wasn't sure if I'd make it to my connection in time, but the airport was not crowded so I managed to get through passport control fairly quickly and made my flight."
Cons: "Flight left a late, which was stressful with an hour layover in Riga where I had to go through passport control. Was very stressed, but made it with ten minutes to spare before my connection boarded because the airport happened to be not crowded."
Cons: "After barely making too tight a connection, all food and beverage needed Euros or European credit card. My Visa wouldn't work. Finally after I broke down (blood sugar way too high) the stewardess gave me a glass of water. Never will I use the money grubbing airline again"
Pros: "Clean and modern airport in Riga Baggage well handled on connection"
Cons: "Boarding tool a lot of time. We departed late"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "The flight from Zurich to Riga and especially the landing was terrible. I travel a lot and this was among the worst flights I have had. I felt as if the pilot was not in control of the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like have to spend 3 hrs. 45 minutes in Riga just to get to Tallinn."
