Cons: "I missed the flight to Manchester due to delay in the flight to Munich"

Pros: "Crew was hospitable and flight was clean."
Pros: "Fast boarding."

Pros: "The staff was very friendly and professional. Entertainment selection was great. Food was exceptional. Flight attendents were attentive and served you throughout the flight."

Cons: "When I missed the flight in Brussels I had no options re: changing my ticket as there was no ticket sales counter at the airport. Had to go to the travel agent and book a flight on another carrier."
Pros: "Great service and food."
Cons: "after the fact, improperly disclosed baggage charge excessive and no opportunity to pay on line and avoid the charge at the airport."
Pros: "You guys did a great job. I've never seen boarding go so smooth, The self-serve boarding gate was better than any human."
Cons: "This was an Air Canada flight. Time in line to check baggage in Frankfurt was 2+ hours, baggage was lost but arrived the next day at our destination. Unable to check-in online ahead of time for unknown reasons. Overall the Air Canada ground experience was pretty bad, but the crew/meals/entertainment was good."
Pros: "Newer, smoother and faster planes help to recover delayed flights."
Cons: "Flights were late and boarding was caios, no one had any clue what to do. Blankets were filthy. Entertainment had limited choice. Considering I took six flights in this month, I will let it slide that they ran out of New movies. Worst part was food. Obviously, there is no quality consideration when they decide menu. Check Emirates or other similar fare bracket airlines to understand the gravity of Lufthansa food problem. If one reason I had to choose to drop Lufthansa from my future consideration then that would be worst food and drinks. I would strongly recommend that they should assign people who need additional time to board at the back of the plane. It will help them to go back of the plane faster and avoid gridlock in the middle. Another advantage is it will help other passengers leave plane faster at the end of the ride. Boarding process will be come significantly faster by filling the plane from back to front by loading passanger with children and who needs time at the first loading area at the back of the plane. Thanks"
Pros: "Again lufthansa crew one of the best out there thank you"
Cons: "No entertainment but I understand why short flight"
Cons: "Meals served in the 2nd flight wasnt up to the mark."
Pros: "we arrived early. the headrests are well-designed- all headrests on all flights should be like this."
Cons: "when we first boarded and went to use the restroom before the flight departed, the floor was sticky and smelled strongly of urine. had they even cleaned it on the turnaround? doubtul. several other toilets also smelled like urine early in the flght. the touch-screen on the entertainment interface is not very user friendly and was kind of frustrating."
Cons: "On May 16, 2017, there was a group of Albanian and American passengers rushing through Frankfurt Airport to catch the connecting flight to New York. Their first flight (LH#1425) from Tirana to Frankfurt was 45 minutes late causing them to eventually miss their connecting flight. At this point, the passengers were asked to show their passports, separating the US citizens from the rest. All the US citizens were loaded on a bus and provided hotel, dinner and breakfast. The Albanian citizens were moved to the lower level of the airport where they were left to freeze all night. Some of the passengers were elderly and had their heart or high blood pressure medications in their luggage that they didn’t have access to. One US-Albanian citizen was asked to separate from his Green-Card holder wife in order to receive the US citizen treatment…"
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic."
Pros: "The pilots were very good as always"
Cons: "1 there was a baby screaming for about 5 hours next to me and the crew didn't do anything to help calm him down. I couldn't sleep or watch tv, neither my neighbors. Food: they served food without any drinks. I had to wait starting eating for another 10 min when they served water. Entertainment: there is no Russian language as an option."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Could update movie selection"
Cons: "This airline has little respect for its customers. In the economy/coach cabin, they squeeze the seat distances to such an extent that, when the person in front of you leans their chair back, you cannot get out of your seat at an upright angle. You have to significantly bend your body. To not loose your balance, you have to grab on to the seat in front of you and that disturbs the other passenger. If they're sleeping, they can be woken up by that. Lufthansa does not care much for its passengers. Nor do many other companies, for that matter, but I think Lufthansa is taking things further than most airlines. It is a disgrace. Their brand is not what it once was."
Pros: "Food was great!"
Cons: "Lackluster movie selection, internet was a rip off and barely worked."
Pros: "Great plane Great food Great movies"
Pros: "The crew was friendlier. the plane was way cleaner than the previous one. The food was more decent."
Cons: "The crew wasn't too willing to help with the carry-on baggage, for example - I kept looking for a while for an available spot to deposit mine."
Cons: "Our flight from SFO to Frankfurt was cancelled and we were re-booked on a very bad itinerary."
Pros: "Smooth flight. No complaints"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was very nice except for the exceptionally tiny and narrow seats."
Cons: "Tiny, narrow seats."
Pros: "super comfortable seats, good movie selection and smooth interface with the personal video screen/music/tv etc., also surprisingly good food."
Cons: "sound on the entertainment system broke halfway through the flight (just my seat)."
Pros: "That the flight left on time and arrived early. The flight attendant was very friendly but knew his job well, and went the extra mile to be sure we were all comfortable."
Cons: "That the plane seemed noisy (from the back row at least). That the flight attendant did not help me find my seat. After travelling almost 24 hours I was tired and was trying to find the seat using the boarding gate number. I figured out I should have been in 9 D by the end of the flight. Instead I sat in the last row because it was empty and there was not a seat 26A. I almost missed this flight because my boarding pass said 26A and really it was 27A. I did look at the board. I did not compare the board to the ticket, and the numbers were so close my tired brain thought they matched. When it was time to board I checked at gate 26A and she sent me around the construction. I told the guy there (27A) I was looking for 26A and he said to go around the construction. I told him they sent me to him and he insisted I go around the construction. I would have missed the plane if someone else had not come up just then and said he was going to Richmond. At that point I told the guy I was too, and he checked my ticket. Some of the problem was my tired brain and you cannot fix that. Perhaps when someone tells your employee that they have already been sent around the construction the employee should just check the ticket instead of trying to send them back."
Cons: "Did not get the luggage for 4 days! I was asked to purchase clothes etc and that they will only reimburse 50% of it. It is understandable that security may have held the bag, but I cannot understand why Lufthansa could not load it for 3 more days?"
