Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew were friendly enough and willing to serve."
Cons: "The seat could have been thicker and softer for greater comfort--instead, it was thin and flimsy. There should also be greater space/pitch between the rows of seats."
Pros: "Crew was brilliant"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Cons: "the flight was delayed by about 30-45 minutes"
Cons: "They lost 2 pieces of luggage in Munich. We are only here on 3 day vacay and will not have our bags until same time tomorrow."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful from FRA to LAX. ground crew in Athens was terrible. Very offensive, unfriendly, unprofessional and ill mannered. Entertainment was good but touch screen was very old and janky."
Cons: "Wifi not working even if you purchase the full flight plan. Other passengers had the same problems. It took 30 minutes to send one email. Ground crew in Athens was terrible. Not cooperative at all, and almost risked missing my flight because of them."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Was delayed outgoing but information was good"
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant. Real humans; they paid attention to my daughter, gave her toys to play with and were ever so responsive."
Cons: "The entertainment system was very unresponsive. Sitting was really cramped."
Pros: "Great staff and food"
Cons: "They made me weigh my carry on, but virtually no one else, despite the fact that my bag was the same size as most and smaller that others! I honestly felt like one of the gate agents were picking on me."
Pros: "Same crew. Really nice flight smooth and professional"
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Cons: "A little older aircraft and seat was very warned"
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"
Cons: "We were advised upon check in online that we could check in but if we needed additional carry on items (1 was free) we had to pay a secondary fee. When attempting to do that online we were unable to, even though it showed the price to do so online was cheaper than the price at the gate. They made us fully check these bags once we got there and we had to pay $40 instead of the 15 or so it stated online. We had to be shuttled to the aircraft and had to wait because the first bus was closed by the operator. We had to wait until the second round for the bus to come back. During the flight the pilot did not mention any turbulence however during the entirety of the flight, including leading up to the landing of the plane, we experienced extreme rocking of the plane back and forth ( I’m aware that this does occur during landings while loosing elevation but this was an extreme case of that) and caused my colleague to get motion sickness which neither of us ever get on flights. I am very dissatisfied with this flight and operations of the airline company."
Pros: "I liked the comfort of the seats and the spaciousness of the area allowing for standing out of the way. The service was exceptional and the food on this flight was very good. Entertainment was also very good."
Cons: "My only suggestion would be if the crew would inquire if you've ever flown either with Lufthansa or specifically business Class and just give tips if needed. Other than that, on this leg of our journey we had no complaints."
Cons: "Delayed in plane almost an hour after landing before being allowed to deplane"
Pros: "Entertainment system was superior and flight crew very nice. Plenty of drinks and food available."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "The service was very good. You never really felt you had to ask. I was able to catch up on a few movies of my choice. That was nice."
Cons: "It's a long flight and it's always difficult to get comfortable and 1st class is just out of my budget."

Pros: "Very quiet flight, almost in time"
Cons: "I was ask to change seats twice so a family could sit together ( not a problem) but because of the change i was in row 41 and had no more selection on food (already by row 36 they only had pasta). Drinks were slow and we were almost done with lunch by the time the cart came."

Pros: "Flight was uneventful, which is what you want!"

Pros: "Cleanliness of the plane, brand new plane, delicious food, real silverware, Plesant crew, love the entertainment"
Cons: "Chaos when getting in the plane. First come first serve which could lead to problems. Everyone wants to get in the plane at once"

Cons: "And they lost our luggage."
Cons: "Foods usually not bad but the sausage and beef was absolutely disgusting."
Pros: "Almost everything, the flight crew was friendly and timely, the movie selection was great, the flight left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "The temperature near my seat was very uncomfortable, to the point where I was sweating for most of my ride. The passenger next to me, also complained to me as well."
Pros: "Flight was only about 60% full. Wine was offered with each beverage pass....also cognac offered after dinner. Plane was newer,comfortable. Lots of legroom in our "more legroom" upgraded seat. Departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Goulash meal meat was gristle and inedible. Other food was O.K."

Pros: "Comfortable and clean. Staff was kind and helpful."
Cons: "The food wasn't good. The pasta was soggy and the bread was hard and stale."
Cons: "The seats are horrendous. I paid for extra room but the armrests don't move. Other airlines have armrest that move in economy seats. No opportunity to rebook online or at the airport. I flew in this route a month before, and since then I've been trying to change the seats. Lufthansa customer service never called me back. When I tried to call, I was put on hold for more than an hour every time. Never flying Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Fast trip"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The lady on the counter was very friendly & helped me to rebook another flight to Frankfurt early next morning."
