Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Well,my whole trip was an adventure! I booked it online but in reality, it wasn't what was advertised. There was a problem with my checked in bag, so i had to pay 22 pounds extra to fit it in a connection flight and now i have to send receipt to get the refund. On my way back, there was a delay, so"
Pros: "Service and the crewe was very kind"
Cons: "There was no entertainment a lite. Crowded the seat but I understand as it was a smalll airplane."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "Fast check in and politeness"
Cons: "Not comfortable seats"
Pros: "Once again the crew was great and helped me find a place to stow my carry on since I was in the emergency row. The snack was also very tasty."
Cons: "More movie choices and more music choices"
Pros: "Nice, uneventful, on time flight with adequate food and entertainment. Good seat recline. Good service. Boarding from the back of the plane makes good sense."
Cons: "First time my knees have touched the seat in front of me (I'm 5-10). Not sure how much more airlines can squeeze us in. Good seat recline is great if everyone is reclining, if not you will have someone in your lap. Had to ask person in front of me to not recline during meal. What really bothered me though was paying for a reserved seat and finding out we had been moved to the dreaded back row due to an equipment change. Strongly suggest passenger notification for this move. Was able to re-reserve seats on check in but there were some significant angst when I found out about this mischief."
Pros: "Seat was upgraded to economy plus"
Cons: "Wait time for US specific security check, line was too long"
Pros: "Food & entertainment were good;"
Cons: "Seats were very tight, several crying babies (no fault of airline) making it difficult to sleep"
Pros: "Gate and schedule alert"
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "The food was excellent"
Cons: "It didn't happen"
Pros: "food was great. Flight staff was attentive, Flight was on time, and plane was clean. Awesome experience."
Cons: "Big chaos on airport: 3x changed the Gate, workers at boarding don’t speak English and ask me to speak Germany...everything was terrible and I never use Lufthansa again and don’t recommend to anybody..."
Pros: "The plane was delayed leaving miami so it arrived late to Munich and I was scared to miss my connecting flight to Berlin but there was somebody waiting for me as well as the other people traveling to Berlin and they walked us through immigration and straight to our flight to Berlin. Thanks for this we didn’t miss our flight. Also this Lufthansa flight Miami- Munich was one of the best planes in terms of cleanliness, comfort and quality."
Cons: "Charged $200 for extra bag after a phone customer service representative confirmed it was only $100 at the airport"
Pros: "excellent service."
Cons: "I always feel that Lufthansa short changes passengers for the flights to the East. 2 tiny washrooms for business class passengers. Toilet lids non- functional. The flat seats are definitely not comparable to ones for travel in the Western Sector."
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Cons: "It would really be nice as a paying HON/SEN and business ticket passenger to get priority boarding. As nowadays seemingly everybody has priority boarding, this offer does not make sense anymore."
Pros: "Very friendly and polite crew, pretty good meal in economy. I liked the entertainment selection"
Cons: "Bathrooms should have gotten a bit more attention in terms of cleanliness."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding"
Cons: "crew was not friendly"
Pros: "Great service everyone was very accommodation. Enjoy the flight and the met some very interesting people. Althoght my flight to Kiev fro Frankfurt was delayed 20 minutes, and to take a bus to another plane, it wasn't that long of a wait."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "the seats are comfortable, food is good and service is better than most"
Cons: "That it took a while to get on plane because of security but thats how it goes"
Pros: "I liked the plane and the crew, that was it. The plane was 3 deep on both sides with an abundance of space for a aircraft of its class."
Cons: "There was no update on the status of our connecting flight. The pilot gave an update of other flights except for ours but it caused a bit of confusion. Some people even had to missed there flights altogether! Lufthansa, from the 4 times I have flown with them always seems to be late with no sense of urgency. Ultimately after arriving in Venice, I get an email that my bags did not make it, yet I was told by the boarding agent that the plane was still loading our bags."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "We were impressed with every aspect of the flight. Will most defiditey use this airline again."
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Cons: "Meals served in the 2nd flight wasnt up to the mark."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I order a seat near the window A9 but this seat has no window. the crew did not solve the problem even I ask them and note that is important to me/"
Cons: "Seat headrest flaps were broken"
Cons: "I had to endure 10 hours sitting next to an obese passenger, who was to big to fit into his seat and had to rest his shoulder and elbow over my seat. The crew couldn't do much and so I had to shift myself sideways for the entire journey in order to make space for this obese passenger to rest his arm into and over my seat."
Pros: "The Lufthansa crew in Munich was very helpful when my boarding pass would not go through - I was not told I needed a new pass for that flight (as the first one had been cancelled and rebooked: 2 Air Berlin flights). No one was of help until this point, and the Lufthansa crew even offered to check on my baggage for us only to notice it never left Berlin; we didn't get it for 3 days. This did not surprise me because last time I flew Air Berlin for an 8 day cycling & camping trip, I didn't see my bike for 5 days (you can imagine this sort of ruins the entire point of the trip). After reading a lot of complaints with Air Berlin and never hearing back from their customer service (ever) after numerous forms filled out, I knew checking our bags with Air Berlin from the start would mean we wouldn't see them in New York. I even said to the Air Berlin employee at check in that I refused to check my bag because of my past experience and he "assured" me my bag would be at JFK when I got there. Ha. It was nice to see the Lufthansa crew shocked at how poorly this trip home was working out for my husband and I."
Cons: "After the cancelled flight, we were very disappointed to be rebooked with Air Berlin. We do not want to fly Lufthansa if they are so closely associated with Air Berlin, and will tell our friends the same."
Pros: "The flight staff was excellent!"
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable; departure and arrival were timely."
Cons: "After priority passengers boarded the aircraft, boarding for everyone else was a free for all. It would be more orderly if there were clear lines and groupings of rows beginning at the rear were called. Movie selection was not great. Many choices were old. Few were current."
Cons: "Flight delay for over an hour with United"
Pros: "Lufthan changed aircraft and totally screwed by seat assignment, very bad."
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "I had a very short (perfect timing) stopover on my way to Bucharest."
Cons: "Dirty plane, apparently not cleaned from the previous flight, since there were crumbs everywhere on the floor.... Unfriendly crew, non accommodating, not helpful, or not even following on questions/ requests from passengers. I don't expect a luxurious meal for an economy class ticket, but the food could have been better ( and it is - with other airlines). Some fresher bread - and more eatable - would have been very good. The movie selection was poor - only old, badly rated movies. I know it can be way better than this - with other airlines. Overall I was unpleasantly surprised - very surprised."
Pros: "The Premium Economy seats were significantly better than Economy seats. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The movie choices were not very good. Very few current movies."
Pros: "Flight from Marseille was delayed. Very tight connection time to make the SFO leg of the trip (30 minutes). A Lufthansa representative met us at the gate along with another passenger and took us via van to passport control and then to a terminal far away from the one we landed. She was courteous and efficient. We get to the gate in time to board."
Cons: "My seat was in row 56, second to last row. The temperature was very cold. I asked a flight attendant to make it a warmer. They tried but to no avail. The flight attendant mentioned that aircraft model (now 15 years old) has had that problem that has never been resolved. Solution was wearing a hat and several blankets. Not good for a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "Day before the flight, Me and my husband did the online checkin as soon we got the email to ensure that our seats are together. At Milan airport, we verified our seat numbers again with the staff to make sure that my seat( which was assigned by Lufhtansa itself) is still the same and is Window seat. She checked and confirmed at the airport that my seat is window seat and there won't be any changes. At Frankfurt airport, while we were ready to board the flight, we were told that the system had assigned my seat to someone else even though i had the seat number printed in my ticket and verified it the same morning at Milan airport too. The Lufthansa staff member M.Hoy ( M.Ahoy) was not at all helpful to resolve the issue. After requesting him to give me another window seat or resolve this system issue, he behaved in a very disrespectful way. Even though it was airlines mistake in reshuffling my seat at the very last moment of boarding the light, he was not at all helpful and spoke to us in a very rude way. I am a regular flyer with Lufthansa/United flights and this was a very horrible experience. I am very disappointed."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and very accommodating. We were also very impressed by the plane itself. The seating was the most comfortable either of us has experienced on an overseas flight."
Cons: "Good for entertainment but the headphone insert in my particular seat would only play through one ear. Not a headphone issue, they worked fine in another screen. Inconvenient for a long flight."
Pros: "I like it , it was good"
Cons: "All was nice.Thanks. The Flight was good, only Some Turbulances , But is ok."
Pros: "Unfortunately expectations on flights are so low that I am hesitant to say much. It got us there in one piece and I guess that is considered nice these days."
Cons: "I don't normally expect much of airplane food but this was a very low end food for an overseas 8 hour flight."
