Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."
Pros: "Food was Good, flight was without much stress and a little faster to compensate for the delay."
Cons: "Delayed boarding, no announcements, long wait in line for boarding, repeated delays. Not the first time - Every tome I use this flight it is delayed and without clear information to passengers how much delay is anticipated. Announcements, even if they come - come not loud, simultaneous with other announcements - so impossible to hear. Scheduled gate is moved every time too."
Cons: "So bad"
Pros: "Nothing. Will never travel with airline in the future. Definitely will not recommend."
Cons: "Flights are delayed frequently which resulted in missing connection from Frankfurt to New York. On arrival, passengers are herded like animals from one point to the next with no explanation as to what resulted in the delay or given sufficient supplements for food etc."
Cons: "The boarding process was not good."
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: "we liked the crew,"
Cons: "the rows were very close to each other, and space was tight between the restrooms, not much room for moving around and having some exercise"
Cons: "This particular flight was delayed beyond reaching the next sep,so we have to rebook our flight threw Chicago in uncomfortable hurry."
Pros: "The crew was competent and friendly. Once we missed our connection, the "help desk" was accommodating, though we had to stand in line for a long, long time before they could help us."
Cons: "We were delayed leaving Munich and the pilot simply said he had no explanation. The delay, combined with massive dysfunction at the Newark airport, caused us to miss our connection to RDU. We ended up in an airport hotel where we caught four hours' sleep before returning to the airport. Newark airport is the worst I've ever experienced. Getting our passports stamped took more than an hour. There were five officials there to clear five or six hundred U.S. passport holders. Then, the TSA people were rude, inefficient, and achingly slow. Overall, it was a horrible experience."
Pros: "It was great."
Pros: "Flight out was delayed by four and a half hours, missed connection was a pain. Was not aware that Lufthansa changed their policy. To reserve seats you have to pay hundreds of dollars, which was not made clear while booking. Further the quality of their food was significantly degraded."
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Pros: "The staff was kind and friendly (which always is the case with Lufthansa!). I felt like more than just a passenger but as a cared for customer."
Cons: "The premium economy seats, while more spacious, were not much more comfortable. They reclined to the point that it was awkward when using the leg rest. Would be better if the leg rest could raise a little higher.."
Pros: "Service, etc was great"
Cons: "There was so little leg room on the transatlantic fight that I could not even cross my legs in front of me. And I am a petite woman. My poor husband (thin and tall) could barely fit in his seat"
Pros: "Multiple bathrooms located downstairs. Modern new plane"
Cons: "Movies were old. No real new releases. Food was terrible"
Cons: "Departure time go to plane was worst because there were not jetway. So people were with carry on to downstairs to reach the plane was very difficult and more difficult for with the baby passengers , elder lady, ...."
Pros: "I loved everything about the Lufthansa Flight. Clean plane enough room. GREAT Service!!"
Pros: "Very good travel , good airplain , and good kosher food"
Pros: "Darned site more comfortable than the first leg of the journey."
Cons: "Tell your passengers they need hiking boots to get from main concourse to B terminal!"
Pros: "First time flying Lufthansa and I had a comfortable and enjoyable experience. The food was quite good and the selection and quality of entertainment was excellent. Best of all, there was plenty of legroom for a long international flight!"
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."
Cons: "1 hour between flights meant a very hectic transfer."
Pros: "Food was great, as was entertainment interface on tv."
Pros: "The flight Crew was very attentive and went the extra mile to keep us happy during our flight, the head stewardess I give her a 10+. we will fly with Lufthansa again. great movies!"
Cons: "The flight from Roma to Frankfurt was late and we had to run what seemed like two miles to be able to catch our connecting flight to Los Angeles."
Pros: "Flew Boing -747 in economy. Wireless internet was nice, but very slow. Food was good, crew was offering water and juice quite often during a flight. Right on schedule. Good price, but had to cough up $100 for a second piece of luggage."
Cons: "Strange selection of movies, outdated earphones, USB wasn't charging my phone."
Pros: "This flight was slightly delayed, but the delay was small and didn't affect my connecting flight."
Cons: "the boarding wasn't "ordered" like last rows boarded first to avoid trying to get by people in earlier rows - that slows down boarding."
Pros: "Excellent snack. Excellent service."
Cons: "Seat poor, small, and not a first class quality. No premium check in. Lounge terrible. No pre board."
Pros: "aircraft is ok departure time"
Cons: "support call line entertainment food all sub standard in economy plus... will not use again."
Pros: "The food, the crew and the entertainment were top-notch, best flight I've been on. Economy was more comfortable than other flights :) will always try to fly with Lufthansa in the future!"
Cons: "Boarding was very chaotic"
Pros: "Latest movies few included"
Cons: "The space is so small. For 11plus hours my body could not move. I never had knee problem but they were so sore. My feet and body got extremely tight mid way in the flight. This is my first and last flight in your airlines."
Pros: "I liked food, entertainment on board, atmosphere, professional crew, arrival on time"
Pros: "excellent !!!"
Cons: "I tried to pay for extra luggage online a day earlier, but that function was not possible through the lufthansa website. I called the service center and the representative insured me he had reserved 1 luggage for me and that I could pay for it (the cheaper price) in the airport. That, ofcourse, was not the case. The lady at the checking counter found no evidence of my phone call and reservation, and had to pay the full price."
Pros: "The price was good."
Cons: "This was NOT a Lufthansa flight. The plane was a United flight. One of the worst I have experienced in 40 years of flying to Europe and Hawaii."
Pros: "Flight departed 30 minutes late (due to a delay with the inbound flight)but a short flight time enabled the delay to be recovered and we landed in FRA on time. A very long taxi (30 minutes) made connection time for my next flight to be very tight."
Cons: "Why do LH insist on serving the 2nd meal/beverage service in economy class until 50 minutes before the flight lands? I suspect they would argue it allows passengers to have greater rest however in Y class the passengers are awake long before......could I suggest serving the snack earlier as it prevents a very rushed service as trays are collected and cabin secured very near to the actual landing?"
"Air France service was superb. The airline did their best to expedite the boarding process even with the constant changes of Covid19 guidelines"
Pros: "La ponctualité."
Cons: "Variété des boissons proposées."
Pros: "El entretenimiento"
Cons: "Demasiadas mascotas sin posibilidad de descanso. Un gato en ej asiento del frente que no dejó de hacer ruido y dos asientos atrás un pero en la misma situación. Debería tomar más medidas para el viaje de mascotas"
Pros: "Crew are the best!"
Pros: "Good aircraft, good service, on time, eventless"
Cons: "There are two types of foot-rests, both are a nuisance for people with long legs. The one popping up from below one's seat is extremely hard to put back in place. The metallic one folding down from under the seat in front cannot be secured back and is always in the way if the passenger needs to stretch his/her legs. This seems to be a new appliance, and I jut wish they would do away with it altogether. More is not necessarily better."
Cons: "Seat recline was broken- wouldn’t hold position."
Cons: "The entertainment system was very old with minimum selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working. The seating area was very cramped. I called for service a couple of times from my seat, but nobody came."
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."
Pros: "Entertainment programs"
Cons: "New variety of food"
Pros: "The crew was terrific."
Cons: "We didn’t travel to Detroit... we were re-routed 3 times and our luggage is lost, some really helpful ppl along the way (thankfully) and some really crummy ppl too... no in between... still not to our destination"
Pros: "Amazing crew and on time flight"

Pros: "Had decent room space seats comfortable"
Cons: "My luggage could have arrived for a start"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Bag was sent straight to NY although Norwegian screwed it up. Am yet to receive my luggage."
Cons: "The flight delayed for 2xhours from Paris to Cincinnati"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and always came around with water."
Cons: "The “vegetarian” option was tuna which isn’t vegetarian and there was no vegetarian snack. With the hundreds of dietary and religious food restrictions you would think having a vegetarian option would be much more attainable.. They also didn’t make an announcement about our flight being late."
Cons: "Booked with my partner. Ended up sitting apart. Not good"
Pros: "Flight was delayed 4 hours with no explanation"
Cons: "Asked for wheel chair assistance and was not met in Paris. Had difficulty and barely made my flight. A gentleman who worked at airport assisted me"

Cons: "Le capitain et l’aterrisage"
Cons: "My entire travel experience became extremely rushed and chaotic due to my flight being canceled and me being alerted -LESS THAN AN HOUR BEFORE IT TOOK OFF! This is unacceptable."
Pros: "Modern aircraft with power, big screens etc"
Cons: "Teenage crew, poor service (not even water brought on request, all "self service" at back of flight, and not being allowed a second drink with dinner), poor language skills (crew not very helpful when 2 hour delay meant I could miss connecting flight, suggesting I "walk fast")."
Pros: "The staff was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "One hour delay without any information on embarking and another hour in the plane before departure"
Cons: "Staff where so unhelpful that I missed my flight and then refused to offer any assistance as to how I could remedy this situation. This cost me over €180 which is a weeks food and stay for me. Don't fly with these guys or with air Croatia."
Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The food very good"
Cons: "First the plane was delayed because of a technical issue that I think they should check before The plane was crowded and old."
Cons: "Please see comments above about this flight."
Pros: "It was quick, very good space in premium economy. Good and friendly service. The food was better than expected"
Cons: "The crew did not announce the score of soccer cup semi final between Belgium and France"
Cons: "They were unfreindly and rude."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "We got socked with 40 Euro fees for our carry on plus personal item being 2 lbs over. The biggest problem is they were picking and choosing which bags they weighed. 10 people behind us and before us got in without incident. Plane wasn’t even half full so they were deliberately trying to make more $."
Cons: "Took very long from landing/ arrival until baggage could be collected. Priority luggage came out last!"
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "Movies were dated. Crew spoke limited and broken English, not good enough for international flights."
Pros: "Smoothness of flight and service"

Cons: "the food is terrible."
Pros: "The crew is great, with their typical slightly humourous and casual French attitude. Great collection of international quality movies."
Cons: "Average and disappointing sitting space. The vegan lacto-ovo meal is disappointing."
Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"
Cons: "1) No on-board wifi 2) Not much seating room - very thin 3) 45 minutes late taking off"
Pros: "Boarding sevece was very nice and helpful Thanks so much"
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "Seat to seat space OK for anyone under 4 ft tall. Pressed intoth seat framein front, I couldn't even turn or get my feet under the seat to extend."
