Flight itself fine, big problem with KAYAK. Revised e-ticket sent in July stated departure LHR 10:55, arrival SFO 13:45. (a believable local arrival time given flight length and time difference). When we got to LHR there was no 10:55 flight to SFO and were advised that in fact flight LH2473 was arriving in MUNICH at 13:45pm, and that we would need to get a connecting flight arriving in SFO at 18:55 local time - over 5 hours later than expected. 1) you the booking agent made an error on the revised e-ticket you sent, omitting the Munich stopover and incorrect SFO arrival time. 2) I booked a DIRECT flight and 3) we had to cancel plans this end as a result, even though the team at LHR did a great job moving us to a later direct flight getting us in 2 hours earlier than the flight from munich would have.

Chep food, Otherwise everything is perfect
Had to wait 9 hours lay over in Frankfurt airport for a 2 hour trip the Albania.
Pros: "Food was not available for flight."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and professional."
Cons: ". The economy seats on the Lufthansa A350 were extremely uncomfortable and seemed excessively narrow as well has having cramped legroom. I could not get comfortable let alone sleep, and my backside felt like I had been sitting on a park bench rather than a long haul coach airline seat."
Pros: "Crew was great. The food Was good."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and there was no air control."
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Cons: "We missed our connection due to the delay and they could only rebook us on flights that made us miss an entire day or our vacation."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
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."
Cons: "It was late by 1 hour. Food was not enough. Was hungry since dinner was late due to delayed flight and breakfast was served at lunch time of MUC. Electrical outliets did not work in the flight and had problems in MUC for GPS."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "In the end I made the flight."
Cons: "Couldn’t add my baggage online thus resulting in a penalty for paying at the airport. Also ticket was booked by Kayak as a standby without alerting me."
Pros: "All aspects except for boarding and transferring ticket..."
Cons: "Lack of Lufthansa staff at check-in. Lufthansa tickets are non-transferable."
Pros: "Having a very difficult time thinking of something I like about the whole service. Maybe the checking in process was a little bit smoother at San Diego compared to other airports."
Cons: "As many of you know, Frankfurt/San Diego is a new service offered by Lufthansa. It touts direct flights to and from Europe. It’s main advertising draw was connection to the east. Many of their connecting flights at Frankfurt are scheduled within an hour of arrival. This possess a high risk of missing your connecting flight. I experienced this personally as a major number of my fellow travelers missed their connecting flights. Though Frankfurt has good directions, transfers take a long time due to multiple security checks and due to the size of the Airport. LAYOVER OF AT LEAST TWO HOURS WOULD BE BEST. Anything less, you risk missing your flight. I was personally selected TWICE for ‘random check’ for the same flight! Not sure how that can happen! The flight itself is long and arduous. the economy seats are small, cramped and don’t recline much at all. The entertainment selection was very limited. The TV touch screen barely worked. The food was tasteless and service was not much better. I have a hard time sleeping on flights with such bad seats but we had air hostess who kept talking the whole flight and that did not help with resting my eyes. I highly suggest taking a different airline through LAX. I personally feel like driving to LA and taking a flight there would be the wise move."
Pros: "The crew was great. There was a nice amount of personal space. The movie and music selection was quite good. The food was decent for flight food."
Pros: "They even filled my water bottle a couple of times in addition to numerous glasses at my seat."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "All the staff were friendly and the complimentary food and drink snacks was lovely."
Cons: "Our flights were delayed both on the way there and back"
Pros: "Service on board was good."
Cons: "The walk to the connecting flight was too long and took a lot of time."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "The crew were good, polite and attentive."
Cons: "Getting through security and to the gate was downright bizzare. We were directed to the special F gate, where we had to stand in the freezing rain in front of a locked door without any explanation. This is after already packing our jackets in. Then we got screened and just as randomly told to go to the main terminal, where we got screened a second time, just as stringently (pulling everything out, padding down the kids). No explanations whatsoever, the craziest experience, completely messed our plans to get a bite up, I wish we were given some information ahead of time that we are going to be sitting in a single room zone. The flight was ok, but hellishly hot all the way."
Pros: "We upgraded our ticket to business class and it was great. It left on time and even landed a little early so we had plenty of time to catch the next flight"
Pros: "Wonderful crew and amazing soft landing, like cream."
Cons: "Bus shuttle to plane"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "operated by Lufthansa. Very efficient. Clean and comfortable"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "See comments above."
Cons: "Overall okay. Boarding was substandard"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and everything went smoothly. I was able to change my seat."
Pros: "Their service is excellent on board ."
Pros: "Flight was late landing then delayed on the ground at EWR"
Cons: "That better seats are so much more expensive."
Pros: "I liked that I got a snack."
Cons: "I didn't like my snack choices. Also, the seats had crumbs on them when I boarded."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Taking off was good"
Cons: "Landing was a little bit stressful. But still ok."
Pros: "They didn't charge me for my surfboards which was great. It was my only check-on bag and under two meters and that should be free on every airline. Flight attendants were very nice and professional. I gave the food 5 stars based on other airline food, I'm not expecting restaurant quality at 37,000'. Movie selection was adequate for me, although I've seen some complaints in the reviews here."
Cons: "It was a little tricky checking in on my phone. The check email reminder didn't carry the info I needed to check in which required extra searching and copying and pasting. That experience could be streamlined. There was group confusion when being directed to board the plane on two flights."
Pros: "On time arrival both ways, decent service"
Cons: "Charges for advanced seat assignment on an international flight is ludicrous and unacceptable. Lavatory malfunction on return trip lead to unbearable smell at my seat."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew, efficient service, okay food options and good quantity for a lengthy flight. Very happy that a vegetarian option isn't a battle anymore! The entertainment options were very nice, the time passed quickly with the many movie options."
Cons: "No real complaints, maybe the cabin air was a little stuffy, but it's too be expected on a flight of 11.5 hrs. Crew offered water and juice throughout the flight which helped."
Pros: "Courteous flight crew"
Pros: "Timeliness Politeness Good food and as much wine as desired A little more leg room would be nice but better than other airlines"
Cons: "The seats are even smaller than the ones on small planes; Almost impossible to move even though i'm not a big person by any means;"
Pros: "The purser was very nice and professional, especially when some other crew members sometimes were not. Food was good and the seats were a bit less tight and narrow than in some other airlines."
Cons: "Our toddler kept pushing the call button, which was very hard to prevent. A first crew member told us to stop it without telling us how - which is quite difficult. Only the purser later helped us to find a solution by gluing something over it."
Pros: "The plan and crew were great"
Cons: "Our bags didnt even leave Detroit and the Spainish bag handling company was horrible. Didnt have luggage for 3 days in Spain. Our bags on the way back didnt make the connection. Whats the deal."
Cons: "I am tall and the seats are too close together."
Pros: "I want to have it. I was expecting a serious and major company as yourself to provide it in a 3.t hours flight. This is how low cost / charters looks like."
Cons: "I area where we did the check-in is horrible. I understand there are security issues but in Frankfurt airport it is much better then Munich and I expect you to find the answer how to have both needs."
Pros: "Great service, good food, plenty of (and good selection) beverages. This is the way flying used to be and it is awesome on Lufthansa and I was only flying regular coach. Also really good music/movie system with plenty of great choices, I watched some very good movies and the system works very well."
Cons: "Only downside is that despite being pretty techie I could not get the wifi to work and I tried three browsers and every bit of advice in the Magazine on board."
