Pros: "The crew was great. The sandwich was tasty. And, I loved the leg room!"

Pros: "The wheel chair service at Munich airport was excellent. She received us at the door, helped us find a connection after we lost our flight and communicating every step and giving us First Class service on coach. Thank you!"
Cons: "The brownies for dessert were terrible. Maybe fruit next time?"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and we were pleasantly surprised to be fed something on the short flight!"
Cons: "Although it was a 4 hour layover, it took almost 3 hours before we saw where our gate was for the flight."

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: "Efficient, on time."
Cons: "Cost for wifi"

Pros: "So very comfortable with lots of room. The mattress pads for the seats were a nice touch."
Cons: "Food was mediocre."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Upon arriving to Frankfurt airport (gate Z) from Boston, i had an hour to make it to gate A including passport control. Once I got to to gates A50-69 I was told that i had to turn back and go through a different passport control as the one close to gates A50-69 was too busy/full. So I turned back although i had no specific gate number where the passport control was. Once I got there, after 10 mins walking (around gate Z20) around and asking lufthansa staff I came across a rather long queue. At that point I only had 30 mins until my flight to Budapest was boarding. I knew I would not get through that queue on time and there was no assistance. So I decided to turn nack and go back to gates A50-69 assport cobtrol where luckily there was no queue at all. I do not understand why i was turned away by staff the very first time I got to that passport control and why there was no assistance by airport staff. Not happy at all about that."

Cons: "See problem with the KAYAK reservation above."

Pros: "Staff, especially male steward was very professional and dedicated. Bravo for the effort for the boy."

Cons: "Flight was on time and food was very good. Took wonderful care of us. Our first flight to Europe and first time on Lafthansa."

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew."

Cons: "Apparently the rude gate agent decided to randomly pull people out of the mass gaggle for boarding and check carryons she seemed to believe we’re too heavy or big, while letting other bigger ones and heavier ones stating safety concerns. The bin has a total weigh limit, not the individual bag. Lufthansa needs to educate its employees."

Cons: "You get onecthecshuttle bus first but then it iscafree for all when you disembark. Only 9ne stairway was operational when we arrived so slow boarding. Business Class seats are same ad economy - just the middle seat is vacant. You get a mediocre meal."

Cons: "pastry, not sandwich"

Pros: "Used both front and back doors to board the plane."
Cons: "Unfortunately, boarding wasn't well organized. It would have been more helpful if rows (1 through X) used the front door and rows (X+1 through Y) used the back door. We had people seated in the front of the plane using the back door and people in the back of the plane using the front door. It slowed the whole process down and was rather chaotic."

Cons: "Due to the reason that the flight was overbookef LH asked us to drop off our hand luggages as well in MXP, however both were approved for the cabine. Due to the late departure our luggages missed the connection so they left our luggage behind in MUC"

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: "at RDU after they missed to notify me in time, they were very nice to find me the fastest route on the next day, not miss my whole conference . They give me food vulture also. most of the flying attendances were really kind under my travel, except on the MUC-IAD plane"
Cons: "They didn't notify me in time on a delay and didn't suggested a different route. Therefore I was able to flew just the following day as my connection to the oversea flight was more then an hour delay. It happened with me flying to Budapest, and also flying back from Budapest. Make you better understand, that does it mean for me: in Budapest I missed the first part of my conference, and with the flying back one day later I lost one payed work day. As I have family in Budapest I decided to stay for the night there, and not at Munich, but just rescheduling my flight and providing me a taxi drive was so complicated, that it took two and half extra hrs at the airport, Also Lufhansa put me in my rescheduled back trip the MUC-IAD flight on the 45C seat, what was the worst seat on the plane. Not just that. When they have plenty of empty seat in all of the section, and they wanted to sell it the economy plus seats for more than hundred dollars, I mentioned to the fight attendance my misery ,and how I don't like the seat what I got, and she laughed on me, and I heard her telling her colleagues,this kind of funny way as they were behind me. That's no how they need to treat passenger, Also on flying back they didn't react fast, and they missed to put me on the Frankfurt plane, what could be an alternative route, on the same day, instead they sent me desk to desk."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Boarding free for all, therefore confusing and slow"

Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"

Cons: "My return travel was on lufthansa but due t delays in departing I missed my flight to the US. We were treated very poorly and slowly by service center representatives. The flight we missed was still at the gate but the door had closed. We were told the flight was oversold so it benefited the airline that we missed it. It’s muxh cheaper to put us in a horrible hotel with disgusting food and fly us out the next day, then pay people to choose a new flight. I had two small children at home and Diebel to this incompetence missed my 4 year olds birthday. He was devastated all thanks to your airline."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Same"

Pros: "Maintaining traditional tourist class service, i.e. a little bag of snack, soft drinks served on even a very short flight."
Cons: "Boarding was free for all, would've preferred boarding by rows."

Pros: "Courtesy"

Pros: "Once we got started the flight was OK. Great crew, the pilot did all the best to catch up for the delay caused in FRA."
Cons: "Once we were all onboard we had to wait in FRA in the plane until someone's baggage was unloaded. The wait time was almost 1 hour which was not pleasant esp. with small children. No entertainment onboard."

Pros: "Salmon sandwich, friendly, nice crew."
Cons: "Lot of stairs, bus ride to the plan for boarding."

Pros: "Was on time , food is pretty delicious still."
Cons: "Flight crew . No alcohol available after the 1st! round. She told me she doesn't have it maybe later.. she never gave me after that. I always had it min 3-4 times before. My first choice is always Lufthansa but after this time I am not sure anymore, I was very disappointed with my attendant and made this trip a bad experience with them. Movie selection not so great either"

Pros: "it was on time and we arrived in one piece"
Cons: "the second leg from FRA to BUD entailed a massively disorganized, no queue control free for all to go through the boarding gates, all of which just led to an overcrowded bus.... which meandered through the airport to your jet on the tarmac.. they then allowed boarding from either rear or front of plane which of course lead to the throngs meeting in the middle and trying to squeeze past each other... horrible. Then... the checked bag did not make it to Budapest as they forgot to transfer it in FRA. so, yeah all in all it was a cheap flight and we got what we paid for."

Pros: "Our flight attendants were very kind and caring, and we landed safely in Budapest. The kids even had the chance to talk to the pilot/co-pilot before getting out of plane, they really loved it. Thank you!"

Pros: "The snack was really good (a salami sandwich and a glass of wine)."

Pros: "Ease of making connecting flight to Budapest"

Pros: "Quick and professional"
Cons: "-"

Pros: "there was no entertainment - but it was a very short flight. Food was ok, service was great"

Cons: "Seat not that comfortable"

Pros: "Given free upgrade. Efficient services."

Pros: "crew interest and flight amenities; excellent meals"
Cons: "not applicable"

Pros: "Very nice snack."

Cons: "I never took this flight."

Cons: "Missed my conection flight I wil not recomend air canada or british airlines for anyone"
