Cons: "Seats not comfortable for long haul, better care"
Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."
Pros: "On time and the staff were very good. The food was not great, buy good."
Cons: "Tried and was unable to choose my seat in advance for flight and thus had to wait until I arrived at the gate. Thus I was unable to sit with my daughter. Was promised seats could be chosen 24 hours in advance, but was not allowed to either on line or via phone."
Pros: "Cabin staff were cheerful and helpfully"
Cons: "We had 4 luthansa flights in a week I appreciate that we were given a drink one up on BA ! However I am trying not to be picky every snack was chocolate 26 grames per 100g not great for a diabetic !!!! It would be lovely to have a savoury option"
Pros: "Crew was awful. Grumpy and not friendly. They hate their customers especially children."
Cons: "This was my worst experience on any Lufthansa flights. Worst ever!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "More support"
Pros: "The crew was nice and efficient. There was no meal service because they had catering problems, but they tried to accommodate small children with candy cars and chips."
Cons: "There was no meal service because of catering problems. Though it was done for our safety (the crew mentioned some problems in prior flights), not having a back-up plan of sorts would be good for an airline of Lufthansa's stature."
Pros: "Crew was the best ever."
Cons: "Space is always an issue on super Kong flights, so any improvement for these 11 hour flights would be great. A place to stretch somewhere?"
Cons: "Not wait five hours to cancel flight. United / Lufthansa was not truthful about reason for delay / cancellation."
Pros: "We had a Lufthansa pilot sitting with us on his was back to Frankfurt. He was definitely good company and taught us a lot about how the airline worked, his family's history working with airlines, and life stories. The flight definitely went fast thanks to Daniel!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seats are v comfortable"
Cons: "I cant really think of anything"
Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."
Pros: "Check-in was speedy and pleasant"
Cons: "Plane small with seats very cramped even for someone quite small."
Pros: "Same as above same as a bove"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Prior flight from Zagreb to Munich was delayed 1 hour due to inclement weather - not the airline's fault. However although I made my connecting flight, my suitcase didn't. I'm writing this the next day & waiting for my suitcase to be delivered."
Cons: "There was no announcement about the delay & the reason why. We found out by reading the board. The passengers found out from each other what caused the delay. Passengers would experience less anxiety if they were informed what's going on."
Pros: "The facilities were really great!"
Cons: "The food - it was in VERY small quantity"
Pros: "lots of crew members, flight landed a few minutes early."
Cons: "although i booked a reservation with 2 passengers, they didn't seat us together and were not helpful at all when we asked them to switch (they assigned middle seats in different rows, so i wasn't able to just ask another passenger to switch). the agent's attitude at the gate was "too bad""
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the plane was clean and well-presented."
Cons: "The flight left with a slight delay. As I boarded, I was issued a new seat in the middle, as opposed to the window seat I had selected. There was zero explanation for this change. When I approached the flight attendants about it, with a smile on my end, I was offered the equivalent of a shrug. As I gave up, I was also informed there was no more room in the overhead bins, so not only did I end up sitting in the middle (which I loathe), but also with my carry-on under my feet. I’ve always been a fan of Lufthansa, but I’m a little disappointed this time around."
Cons: "United charged me a Bagage fee of 25 dollars and they where not supposed to since it was a international flight. The knowledge of the agent was not very good. Now I will have to write to Lufthansa and hoping they will reemburse me."
Pros: "Very stable aircraft with attentive staff"
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The usual flight discomfort, but the seat in front of me was broke. The person in it struggled to stay out of my lap, which I appreciated. The connecting flight had a non-functional screen and the reading light broke and flew across the cabin."
Pros: "All was good."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "loved the candy given to us when we left the plane"
Cons: "Too many announcements"
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Cons: "Lufthansa lost 6 of our bags and left us with no information or compensation. I sent them emails but there is no response from customer service. Costed us $500 to buy things on emergency basis for our family and they delivered the bags after 2 days. This was very unprofessional and Lufthansa has to pay for it. Can you please help. Next time we will certainly have to avoid The airline as their gate transfer in Frankfurt is horrible with very rude security staff who has no interest helping our family to board the flight on tight connection. Instead the person decided to go on his break right when we were at the X-ray screening. How rude and unthoughtful."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Departure was a bit late but we were informed. Even with that delay arrived on time. Coach seat was okay for me. Movies offered could be better but there was enough for my taste. It was a night flight anyway, so I was asleep most of the time."
Pros: "Flight Crew"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad."
Pros: "Nice service, nice staff"
Cons: "The food becoming worse and worse each time.. I think it is better to Lufthansa to reduce price of the ticket and do not serve such kind of burgers.. Or improve the quality of food if they still positioning as the one of the best airlines."
Pros: "Service was great, pilots were amazing no decompression pain in my ears."
Cons: "The flight was delayed in Warsaw for 1:30 hours"
Cons: "They charged 40 Euro for baggage. On the charge again? Why this was not on any agreement International flights one baggage suppose to be free"
Pros: "I loved the ample number of bathrooms and their cleanliness. This was hugely important to me and would be reason enough to choose Lufthansa (and not Swiss Air) again. The families-first boarding made our flight much more pleasant than we'd expected. In all my travels, it's rare for me to have two pleasantly astounding experiences in the same flight. Thank you for your improvements of bathrooms, Lufthansa!"
Cons: "Other airlines have flight attendants who are a bit warmer and more responsive to children. That's one area where Swiss Air came out on top."
Pros: "The food and service"
Cons: "I don't have my luggage yet!"
Pros: "The staff was so accommodating and friendly! Great trip!"
Pros: "Plain in excellent condition and very clean. Friendly staff and welcome."
Cons: "Should have mobile phone chargers on board."
Pros: "Comfortable, left and arrived on time , smooth check in"
Cons: "No entertainment (no screens on back of seat ) , no provision for priority boarding for star alliance gold member(security line)"
Pros: "IT WAS A COMPLETE FRAUD !"
Cons: "MY TIME IS TOO EXPENSIVE to use time to explain"
Cons: "They had overbooked the flight and asked to reroute me. I asked if I would still be able to get to my destination at the same time and to make sure I would have a window seat. Everything from the moment I said yes was a terrible. They rebooked me twice on two different routes when I was in the air. Said a steward would meet me (never happened) instead I was running to catch flights on different airlines in two different airports. The entire situation was disgusting. The running was with all of my luggage. Because of the rebooking I was in the last row of 75 rows on a plane with an additional connection. Every flight had delays creating more chaos for the next flight. The only helpful airline in the bunch was Delta."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, about what you'd expect from a short-duration flight on a major airline."
Cons: "I wished to change to an earlier flight with plenty of seats available. the Lufthansa ticket agent stated the only way, as I had booked a "light" fare, was to pay a full-price one-way economy ticket--plus luggage--for about 380 euros with no credit for my current ticket. After booking a day-room at a local hotel, I checked in on-line and discovered for 115 euros I could have upgraded to business class, with luggage included, and been accommodated on schedule changes. My suggestion to Lufthansa is if they intend to rip their customers off it's best NOT TO LET THEM FIND OUT ON THEIR OWN WEBSITE, or if they're simply too incompetent to match marketing offers to their booking department they could save considerable income and reputation by closing the ticket office. As it was, the impression was a low-class money grab. It's not like they can count on their partnership with United to make them look good."
Pros: "The flight from Frankfurt to Newark, NJ was good. Flight crew was courteous and movies made the time go quickly. Food and drinks were also plentiful. I have no complaints other than having to pay extra for seat assignments."
Pros: "Friendly service, everything very organized, calm atmosphere on board"
Cons: "Entertainment options pretty limited, personnel at check in for flight rather rude"
Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled our return flight from Rome two days ahead of departure. Spent the whole day trying to contact them by calling from Rome on American phone which ended up costing over $100, eight times the.l hold was over an hour after which Lufthansa just hanged up. Here is German "reliability, responsibility, and organization" in action!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to the pilots' strike. I only learned about this when I attempted online check in. Lufthansa never attempted to notify me. Then when I called in to the Romania Service Center to rebook, the phones went down in the middle of the call. That is understandable given the extreme volume of calls they were handling. What is unacceptable, is that they made no attempt to contact me once the phones were up. I ended up calling the U.S. service center at 1am local time to rebook...only 3 hours before I needed to leave for the airport. It took an hour - which I paid for at direct dial international rates - to find a flight. I'm very grateful for the U.S. service rep who was kind and helpful. She was the one bright spot in this poorly handled situation."
Pros: "Food , great service"
Pros: "Really liked that glasses water, soda and juice were readily available near the staircase to the bathrooms. The seats were spacious and comfortably reclined. The staff went out of there way to make sure we were comfortable. I appreciated them refilling my cup right after being served a drink because I was thirsty and had immediately drank the first cup. The movie selection was pretty good but could have had more up to date movies. I liked the touch screens."
Cons: "The airline lost my suitcase and deliver it only 72 hours later... They refused to give me proper compensation for items that were broken..."
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"
Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"
Pros: "Planes were on time and connections made."
Cons: "One bag delayed as not put on flight and food could be better."
Pros: "Great airline"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight on schedule and good entertainment."

Cons: "more lunch choices, especially choices without dairy products."
Pros: "Crew were great"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."

Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."
Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."

Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"

Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Cons: "Missing wheel chairs swrvice lounge far away no food option just lame klm tipique"

Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "Easy boarding, plenty of room"
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
Pros: "I have no complaints about the air crew. They where pleasant and attentive. Plenty of free entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "my only complaint is the USB ports didn't work on any of the chairs that me and my family where assigned to."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."

Pros: "The check in process at LAX was very efficient and smooth. and the crew on the plane was very considerate. And the tv system on some of the planes is very enjoyable."
Cons: "There was a technical issue on the plane so they had us get off and wait hoping they could fix the problem. It turned into a 3 hour wait. They covered a meal for us which was good and gave us $50 off our next flight. But I’m not sure I want to book united again. The lady at the service desk was not very patient (which is understandable since a loy of people had to rebook their connecting flights). But I was smiling at her and just asking how to go about changing our connecting flights and she seemed a little bit ready to get rid of me. And the next plane we got on, one of our tv screens didn’t work. And the connecting flight was delayed also because of a technical problem."
Cons: "THERE was NO flight! WTF were you sending me reminders for!!!!! There was complete disruption here, preparing for a surprise flight that did NOT exist!"

Pros: "Great left ok time..."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour because no gate was available! I missed my connection by 5 min. When I asked if they could do something (hold the plane etc) since I had a connection they said, “Sir everyone has a connecting flight!” Like I was asking them to move mountains. Point is, United doesn’t care about their costumers. I see them going out of business soon. They have terrible costumer service. I missed the holidays with my family and had to buy a new plane ticket on a different airline because they could not reschedule me on time!"
Pros: "A pleasant surprise when overbooked flight was announced was that I could give up seat on Chicago to LA flight and get a direct flight Chicago to San Francisco and still make my connection to Santa Rosa. A very nice perk. Everything comfortable on flight."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything. Comfortable flight. Good flight attendents."
Cons: "I didn’t like being told I couldn’t use the restroom in front because it was for 1st class only. I was in a wheelchair and dealing with spine issues which made it very difficult to walk at all. Then on my flight home from GR the flight ended up being 3 hrs late. I was in terrible pain."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"
Cons: "No food I was hungry .. because In the airport I didn't have time and they just give cookies lol"
Cons: "The crew when boarding was very rude, my ticket said ask an agent for an assigned seat and the three people from delta I spoke with were very rude and the first two completely treated me like I was nothing but a bother for asking for assistance. The third lady just said it was overbooked I didn't have a seat she was busy with other stuff and would deal with me later to listen to for my name to call. Not impressed with deltas service at the airport. The flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "Air Canada sold the flight to United Airlines - and United moved the flight later and later and later. Six times. When this was combined with a weather delay, we ended up boarding at 11 PM and landing well after midnight. This is not what we signed up for and not what we wanted."
Pros: "The crew"

Then this flight Washington connection to Detroit from raleigh the pilot never showed up and extra hour went by, we got a new pilots but, then leading to faulty paperwork that took another hour and thirty minutes after boarding the plan to get sorted. When we got that sorted they then proceeded to tell us that the flight atendent had to leave and we had to wait another 20 min for another atendent to arrive before finally making our way to Detroit. They said to file a complaint and we would be compensated for our wait. Not sure if this is the right spot but I'm giving it a go. Thank you Keith Www.keithschmidt.com"
Cons: "Delayed by 6 hours"
Pros: "Just about everything was perfect. lots of leg room in economy plus, seat next to me stayed empty, the meals were very taste. And the crew members were extremely professional. It was just a perfect experience."
Cons: "I selected my seats day I purchase. I didn't get the seats I had selected. I prechek in online. I ended up the very back in a single row against the toilet which made me throw up 3 times. I don't get sick on flights. But the smell was so bad!,"
Pros: "I had left my laptop at security and the woman at the on board desk (wish i knew her name) changed my flight to go on a later flight to West Palm Beach instead so I could get my laptop and continue on my way to Florida. She didn't even charge me anything extra! The West Palm Flight wasn't full and I was able to get closer to my destination going to West Palm Florida. The flight was smooth and the snacks were great too!"
Pros: "Fast loading and effect attendant"
Pros: "Friendly crew. On time"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding front to back. Boarding should be back to front."
Cons: "do not see how the process is helped at all with those "lines or zones" Still seems like people get clogged up and takes too long to get boarded."
Pros: "the captain kept us informed about the turbulent situation"
Cons: "it was scary"
Cons: "Landed 15 minutes early, waited for the gate open , then ended up 10 minutes late in a different gate further away from my next gate that we had a short connect time to . It's obvious that United spends all its money on frequent fliers so the rest of us are left to fend for ourselves ."
Cons: "Difficult to hear, much confusion as to which line to get into, the marking are easy to read unitl a line forms then just a jumble of people in the walkway"
Pros: "Boarding was a bit crowded and hectic. The food was good as was the service. We had tons of entertainment options."
Cons: "Checking in in Amsterdam was a nightmare. Long lines everywhere. They can't handle the volume of passengers efficiently"
Cons: "Entertainment system was extremely poor. Need app to use it so I didn't preload onto my iPad but tried to use iPhone instead and the streaming was just so poor and kept freezing that I just gave up and read a book. Also selection should have included a lot more shorter programs that could be viewed on less than 2 hour flight eg lifestyle programs, news etc."
Pros: "I liked that we got to our destinations safely."
Cons: "I had absolutely no leg room. I felt like I had been hunched over the entire flight. The overhead system was horrible and bi one could make out what the flight attendants were saying in the microphone."
Pros: "El sistema de entretenimiento. Optimo"
Pros: "I liked the entire flying experience. It was ideal. Best part to me was the pre check and not having to go thru the line. Flight left early, arrived early, I had a middle seat and it was comfortable."
Pros: "Food and drinks were great - even had three choices in Economy. Staff was great and attentive and seats were comfortable. Other than the screen problem mentioned everything else was great."
Cons: "The display screen was not calibrated, so if you pressed a button the button two buttons over would activate. This meant I could not watch movies or hear audio because those buttons didn't work. The staff rebooted the virtual Linux server for that seat, but this had no effect on the uncalibrated screen."
Pros: "No surprises."
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "The United Terminal at Newark is hideous and United should be ashamed to be associated with this poor quality. The airport is a construction zone at best. The aircraft is tiny, cramped and inadequate."
Pros: "Crew were nice especially at boarding."
Cons: "No free entertainment despite having a screen at each cramped seat. No nuts, pretzels or anything else offered with the beverage. Only food available was being sold. Had to pay for each checked bag. Website is one of the least user friendly of any of the airlines."
Pros: "Staff was courteous, and explained situation clearly."
Cons: "After booking my flight two months prior and checking in 12 hours earlier, I was not allowed to board the plane because United had overbooked. Thus forcing me to fly to Charlotte then Newark at a 5 hour delay. There was also no drink for those in my row during a two hour flight from Charlotte to Newark."
