Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Arctic char looked like it really was salmon. Need better selection of contemporary movies. When The Third Man is the most attractive alternative it's not so great. Would like to have seen the attendants more pro-active in asking about beverages and passing out snacks, fruit, etc. Saw just the water, orange juice and apple juice trays being carried around."
Cons: "Beef main course overcooked and dry."
Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."

Cons: "Lufthansa is always late, every single flight I have caught with them has been at least 45 minutes late. Additionally they are very inflexible if you want to make a change to your tickets after purchasing. Boarding the plane is handled very inefficiently and takes much longer than most other airlines. The food is mediocre and the drink cart only comes by every 2 hours or so which is far too infrequent"

Pros: "Munich airport is great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Mess in JFK airport"

She went above and beyond to help me out with the issue i had... but everyone else i went to get help from were not at all helpful (3 other people), sour face, they probably hate their job. Movie choices on flight to Munich were great. Smooth flight, I didn't lose my bag so that was great too!"
