Cons: "The list of movies was poor"

Pros: "Good choice of movies."
Cons: "The tightness of the seat arrangement when the row ahead reclined is extremely awkward. We are not large people but getting over the aisle armrest was very difficult to maneuver to avoid injury (falling). The security in Munich was upsetting in that one man yelled at me , "Get it out! Get it out! Get it out! because I put my electronics in one of the bins before my husband. I was confused as to what I had supposedly done and I said, "This is my husband" (who was removing his shoes) and this man's reply was "I didn't know that". We were not trying to cause trouble and we cannot understand why he had to yell."

Cons: "I wish there would have been additional snacks or candy available for purchase. That being said, I was delighted with the drink service-I always had water available which was much appreciated!"

Cons: "The vegan meal. No airline appears to know how to make a healthy and tasty meal."

Pros: "The staff were really nice and professional"
Cons: "The seats we were in though lots of leg space the armrest were not reclining and after eight hours it got quite uncomfortable. Also my headphone jack was damaged but the staff made it right."

Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"

Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."

Cons: "for 3 years, 90% of my flights from Beijing were delayed or cancelled. Beijing International Airport is the worst airport ever. About my flight from Beijing to Munich this time, we were stranded on the runway INSIDE the plane for 5 hours w/o food and water for the first 4 hours!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They ran out of food choices, so I had to go with mushroom pasta."

Cons: "The 1-star responses correspond to N/A. Mt flight was :30."

Pros: "Check-in was easy, and boarding went quickly. I got the seat of my choice in Economy, and was very comfortable. Food coming from Germany was good, especially the breads! The crew was numerous and very attentive and pleasant. This was my first time flying Luftansa, and I would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "The biggest complaint I have was that one of the restrooms in my section was out-of-order. That meant a lot of waiting, but everyone was understanding and good about taking turns. The movie selection could have used a bit more mystery type films, but that is my taste. I did watch a few movies I hadn't seen."

Pros: "Our first flight was late. We were met at the gate immediately after landing and were brought individually and directly to our next flight behind the scene, including passport control. Excellent."
Cons: "I wish Lufthansa would find a way to create less trash. Too many small plastic cups are used. Proved refill options rather than new cups."

Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"

Pros: "Lufthansa took great care of my two cats transport abroad. They went overboard in my estimation and along with partner Adria Airways I couldn't be more grateful,and so are the kitties, for the wonderful care. ."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight and I spent 7-8 hours on phone trying to resolve."

Pros: "Lufthan changed aircraft and totally screwed by seat assignment, very bad."

Pros: "Great A380 aircraft"

Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."

Pros: "premium economy was nice"

Pros: "Allowing people to cut in line No security No help Nothing dine"
Cons: "No communication No concern Hot tired hungry"

Cons: "Overall it was great experience. Although it was not Lufthansas fault, I just wanted to request Lufthansa to request/require Ashgabat airport to treat the luggages kindly because Ashgabat airport scratched and threw my luggages."

Pros: "I like the Tampa airport MUCH better than Miami or Orlando that are chaotic and offer less assistance to the traveler. I hope you continue to offer flights to and from Tampa from Frankfurt."
Cons: "I would like for long flights if the staff would remind and encourage all travelers that there is time for rest and quiet. Some people are loud by nature or because they come from a certain area and talk all 9 hours of flight, very annoying, disturbing the flight of others with unnecessary continuous conversation."

Pros: "Service in general."
Cons: "I paid to choose my seat during the flight. However; they didn't respect the seat I paid for and they gave a different one, and the seat that they gave me wasn't a seat for the one I wouldn't had paid for. That same situation happened two times. During the flight from Panamá to Franckfurt and Franckfurt to Rome. That's why I felt they Robbed me."

Cons: "Food was lousy. I have not flown L for sometime, but the food was lousy. I don't remember it being this bad previously. They ran out of rice and chicken...and served me beef... The chicken was on the bone, instead of being off the harder to eat in small space."

Pros: "Lovely attentive crew went out of their way to provide comfort and service"
Cons: "Clear guidance for priority boarding groups"

Cons: "Better than I expected!"

Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Cleanliness"

Cons: "Made a good effort."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Boarding on time for starters"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and the seats are comfortable for a short flight"
Cons: "Entertainment options could have been better."

Cons: "We paid $37 to check in 1 Baggage and the flight from SFO to Beijing had delivered the baggage in baggage claim area. We had to take Chinese Visa to get to the baggage, even-though it is a transit. We missed the next connecting flight to Shenzhen as it ate up all our time. Now have to travel in the mercy of the airlines for next flight. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LIST THAT "VISA NEEDED IF CHECKING IN BAGGAGE" MISSED ALL FLIGHTS"

Cons: "Lost my bag."

Pros: "Flight crew helpful"

Pros: "I was stranded by not being aloud to board the plane there was a visa problem at my destination the air China staff required me to have a visa to enter the country of India. There is a tourist visa for under 180 days stay. That’s what I get when I enter on a land route just a 60 day visa upon arrival so the agents would not let me board. Air China sent me a note that I could cancel the flight and should be able to get a refund. I have called 6 times already and have yet to speak with anyone I stayed in the station all night and at 9 am today they will give be a number that will work"
Cons: "I would like to get a full refund"

Pros: "Crews were polite and helpful"

Pros: "The departure from Shenzhen instead a typical Hong Kong departure is good, also the cost was good"
Cons: "Airliner should offer something to cover the seat at busisnes class instead just the blanket as other airliner do. The policy of no eletronics during the flight is not ok"

Cons: "You can't even supply the flight yet constantly send e-mails asking how the flight was. You shouldn't offer flights if you can't book them. Then sending constant e-mails making it seem like they're booked."

Cons: "Firstly, the ticket I bought had a hidden stop that wasn't disclosed to me. I called and the representative said it is fine."

Cons: "Forty minute delay boarding with no announcement of reason why"

Pros: "Crew served perfectly."
Cons: "This flight was 13 hours delay. No any info and undated news from airport and Shenzhen airline. I was sitting in the airport for over 13 hours. NO food was supplied. All customers were desperate and annoyed."

Cons: "the seat can not be adjusted, worst one I've seen all these years."

Pros: "It got me there."
Cons: "Vintage plane."

Pros: "NOTHING!"

Pros: "Was an ok flight experience. Boarding was smooth and the cabin staff were pleasant."
Cons: "Not one of my 4 flight legs were on time. The flight I was on was advertised as non stop flight but what is not made clear is the flight has to make a stop for passengers to clear immigration and customs - which is ok but they should make it clear. They also have a wierd policy of not allowing use of phones or tablets even on flight safe mode which if you aren't prepared for makes a boring flight."

Pros: "The service has improved and nice to travel with them especially when I'm star alliance gold member."
Cons: "Nothing for this trip"

Cons: "I saw a price on Kayak app on my Iphone. I chose the Kayak price, no other 3rd party. Kayak re-directed me to Flight Network. Purchase the tickets, filled out credit card and all. Got a ticket purchase confirmation. Went to bed to wake up early in the morning to get early flight. Get to the airport, I learned from the airline the tickets were never issued. Called flight network and they tell me the tickets have been canceled because they were not able to secure the advertised price. This is misrepresentation and screwed up my whole trip. If a booking is done, the 3rd party should honor what they sale, even if they mess up. Moreover so that I choose the purchase on kayak option. Will never do it again, lesson learned. Will purchase elsewhere."

Pros: "Good service, decent food, fair sized planes"
Cons: "All is good"

Pros: "We asked at the China air lounge if we could change seats to sit together, which they did."

Pros: "There was plenty of leg room"
Cons: "The policy about cell phone use on the aircraft"
