Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"

Cons: "Space is too limited even for the a small built body."

Pros: "Great crew. I love Lufthansa. I just wish there was more room for my legs."
Cons: "More leg room!"

Cons: "Traveled business class and the big perk was nobody in the middle seat. My seat was same size and uncomfortable as economy seats. The seating chart when I chose seats showed only 2 seats on each side. However there were 3 regular seats on each side, just like economy. Not a nice surprise."

Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."

Pros: "On time, onwith excellent care by staff"
Cons: "The long walk on the airport for connecting flight"

Cons: "Sittinf in the middle"

Pros: "Quick flight. O ly 2 people per row. Bags did not get lost"
Cons: "Walking to different concourse. Then walk down to bus and ride 10 mins to plane and wait to get on. First come first seated."

Pros: "We purchased seats with extra legroom and it was very, very much worth it. My husband is 6 foot four and he was able to stretch out his legs comfortably. Seats are not uncomfortable, which is different from some airlines we’ve been on, and we really like the adjustable headrest where the sides can be flipped up to keep your head from rolling around while snoozing. We like that the silverware is actually metal instead of plastic!"
Cons: "The screen that folded out of the armrest was so small that watching a movie on it gave us a headache. The furst meal/lunch was so-so. Personally I would prefer a mixed fresh salad with a little bit of ham or chicken on top instead of the attempt at a hot mushy entree. The second meal/dinner was Similar to a hot pocket. The bread and the filling was pretty tasteless. Why not just have a healthy fruit bowl? Would have liked to see some English language reading material in the seat back pocket – it appeared to be only German language. Alternatively, it would be great if the flight attendants could offer non-German language reading materials upon request."

Cons: "We waited for an hour at the gate for other passengers, to where we missed our connection in Chicago and did not get back to Austin, TX for another 24 hours."

Cons: "The landing was exceptionally rough Also we were delayed one hour and then had to wait some more in hot bus until plane was ready"

Pros: "Seat was excellent. I like the blanket and more than anything real silverware...unfortunately for bad food"
Cons: "Food real bad, hope it will be better from Frankfurt"

Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("

Cons: "To whom it may concern I had booked flight from Casablanca to Chicago via Frankfurt , on May 6th , by Lufthansa, two hours before the flight , at the counter in CMN , they notified me , that the flight , is over booked , and I can’t catch this flight , and they offered me different difficult options, , till the flight boarded , they offered me one of the most inconvenient flights , and reward me some amount , in this case : I missed my flight which accordingly , lose my appointment , and lose my business. I frustrated with this decision at late hours . I asked full consideration of all the difficulty situation and the turbles they put me ."

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food and drinks were far in between. We were on Delta for an international flight and they almost didn’t stop offering stuff to us. I had a another man with broad shoulders like me next to me and had to spend the next 9 hours leaning to the other side to fit. Asked for help to find a different seat even if I had to pay for an upgrade and was told I couldn’t do that after the flight had started"

Pros: "Second leg of an overseas flight still business class nice service tired from overnight first leg"
Cons: "As me ruined in the first leg they lost my luggage and eight hours later they have no idea where it is. After paying over 2000 bucks for a business class flight that really put a damper on things."

Pros: "It was great."

Pros: "Friendliness of the crew, they not only served us well, they were having fun doing it. Job well done. Thank you all."
Cons: "Nothing really, everything was great."

Pros: "We enjoyed everything about our Lufthansa experience. Crew and flight attendants were very kind and attentive throughout the entire flight. On both of our international flights my wife and I had 4 seats to ourselves, which allowed us to stretch out much more comfortably. Flights were on time, landings smooth, online entertainment worked great, food was delicious, and the service outstanding."

Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "There was a delay on the takeoff and arrival was taken to another gate and had to take a bus. Not crew or company's fault- but makes traveling a bit slow. Several people had connecting flights..!"

Cons: "Felt helpless and frustrated."

Pros: "Short flight, not much to say about it."

Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"

Cons: "The ticketing when purchasing a ticket from NEW YORK is very unclear and even though we wanted a JFK ticket, the NEW YORK search showed a ticket for NEWARK NJ so my step dad ended up going to the JFK airport - An elderly man who has trouble with English and no one was willing to help him to rebook his ticket. Not only that - the Lufthansa people VOIDED his entire ticket including the second leg because the agency wasn't picking up for a rebooking so the entire ticket cost was lost - $1200 - GONE! We couldn't even get him a one way ticket so he could use the return part of the one he bought. This is an absolute customer service disaster. This man lost all his money, he saves up all year to go see his family. That's an ugly way to take advantage of people."

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: "No major issue."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"

Pros: "Service was Friendly"
Cons: "Baggage took a long time l"

Pros: "They had delicious little sandwiches for breakfast, and were amazingly efficient at getting out the snacks and coffee."

Pros: "Boarding was organized, flight was not profoundly oversold."
Cons: "Food was not appetizing."

Cons: "Boarding was poor - we were put on standby, the gate changed, we were bussed out to the tarmac, and the plane left very late."

Pros: "The flat bed seats in business are great. Be sure to get aisles seats in the middle so no one has to crawl over you to get out of their seat."

Pros: "Excellent steward."

Cons: "I missed flight to Los Angeles because of laziness and carelessness of Lufthansa employees. I came with the train on 12/26/16 at 8:33 am to catch flight to Los Angeles at 10:05 am. I had plenty of time. As soon as got of the train I got into line to check my luggage. I had boarding pass already. Line to check luggage was huge with 2-3 clerks to check luggage for all US flights. After while I complained that I will miss flight to several clerk who were standing around talking on the phones all the time but answer, if I got one was, sir you will be fine. After one hour I got to security check line which was equally long. I complained again no response. With probably 20 minutes left I cut the line on my one mad as hell. I got at 10:00 am at the gate and some older lady was like " Sorry sir we closed the flight". I said "What do you mean, it is 10 am and flight is at 10:05am??? "Sir we sold your ticket" I couldn't believe her words. Anyway they sent me to Munich to catch flight to LA next day. Best part I HAD TO PAY HOTEL IN MUNICH BECAUSE LUFTHANSA DID WANT TO COVER EXPENSES. I don't know what happened to famous German organizational skills or this is just Lufthansa and her careless employees."

Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"

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: "Quick flight, efficient boarding."
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable, but it was a short flight. Our layover was too short and our passport verification process almost made us miss our flight."

Cons: "2 hours late"

Pros: "clean cabin"
Cons: "AC was broken, set on plane for an hour sweating terribly, had to stress to make connecting flight, barely made it. Movie selection did not appeal to me. Seat was super narrow and my seat did not recline fully, pure torture."

Pros: "All"

Cons: "As there was a long wait, the gate change did not come quickly for notification."

Pros: "Smooth travels"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Good entertainment section if you have your personal devices. Menu was better than most anymore (which isn’t saying much)."
Cons: "Attendants allowed drunk travelers to party and gather in the aisles. They were spilling drinks and yelling so loudly “talking” that you could hear them clearly over the engine noise AND headphones, and they kept serving them."

Cons: "arrived 24 hours late. had to stay overnight in Newark. And United lost our luggage. The worst trip I have ever had."

Cons: "The fact my luggage didn’t arrive with me in Detroit and that we were 30 min late and couldn’t get off the plane because of lighting like come on!!"

Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."

Pros: "On time, comfortable seating, good service. Only thing wrong was that i couldn't get the entertainment to work on my android phone.."

Cons: "flight was delayed - mechanical; disabled husband (had knee replacement 15 weeks ago) had to walk the entire way from concourse F to A. the caused excruciating pain."

Cons: "We kept getting delayed by 20minutes (for 4 hours) without any communications/updates from the staff as to what the problem was or when a solution might be found."

Pros: "Awesome"

Pros: "Not a good wifi connection. Could not access wifi using my united mileage plus account. System wouldn't accept or recognize my account number and I was locked out of my own account. Also wanted to access both my laptop and cellphone email acct but was locked out. Very irritating. Unable to get the work done that I had scheduled."

Cons: "loudspeaker was way too loud - my hearing was fine before the flight...."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. We were always informed of what was going on."

Cons: "Kept delying the flight for a total of 5hours, and then sat on the runway for 1 hour before take off. Was the worst experience of flying by far. Will definitely go back to delta or American as they are more informative and nicer"

Cons: "I can't wait to the Redding airport has a body scanner. I have an artificial hip and have to go through a full pat down every time I fly."

Cons: "Our plane arrived late causing a 20 minute delay, and then we sat at the gate for a very long time after boarding, which ended up in a full hour delay getting out of Newark."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "My family was made to suffer due to United's inability to get all passengers off the plane in a timely manner. We all suffered for 25 minutes in a hot plane. We got nauseous from the heat . We ad to sleep on the floor of the airport in CO because we could not get a flight for that night. We missed an important Military graduation that is once in a Lifetime Experience. Your lack of customer service is appalling and I hope That I never have to experience that again."

Cons: "Nice quiet flight home."

Pros: "They knew of the issue and kept us on the plane for 2 hours before letting us deboard. The plane was 90 degrees and miserable."

Pros: "The service was good along with everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food was actually pretty good."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system was broken my entire flight and my husband's was broken for a portion of it. It looked like the screen was seizing and I couldn't turn off the screen. The flight attendant tried restarting it multiple times but there was no other troubleshooting to fix it."

Pros: "Left on time,arrived on time, crew was polite"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Will NEVER fly United again. Going home to advise EVERYONE I know not to fly United. They straight suck. Starving people on long flights with hot food for a third of the plane?!?!?! Then telling me I'm wrong for expecting a meal on an almost 7 hour flight?!?!?! &, even better, the reason my son & I starved all morning, day , & evening because EVERY single flight (all 3) were late, one so much so that we almost missed the connecting flight. Wow, is all I can say. After I still have United a chance after assaulting that poor man. Beyond highly disappointed."

Cons: "Not a crew or airline issue, but strong winds made for three attempted landings."

Cons: "Please make announcements if there are gate dhanges. I would have missed the flight if I didn't double check with the staff at original boarding gate."

Cons: "We were told there wasn't anymore space for carry ons so I had to check my bag. I got on the plane and there was plenty of space for bags. There needs to be better more efficient communication about baggage space."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful to make us feel comfortable and they really worked as a team to make sure it went smoothly."
Cons: "The seats were really tight to move around."

Pros: "Delay, delay, delay"

Pros: "The flight attendants did a wonderful job keeping guests informed and mitigating potential problems"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed over two hours due to a late arriving plane We were again delayed over an hour because our flight would place the pilot with more hours than accepted by safe flying standards (didn't they know this ahead of time? When we were initially delayed?!?) The seats were SO uncomfortable. All I wanted was sleep, but they only reclined a couple of inches"

Cons: "Waiting in the airport for 8hours! I have fibromyalgia and it was very uncomfortable. Never got a straight answer about why it kept being delayed. Missed my flight to San Diego!"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The plane left late due to electrical issue – light was on and had to be checked, and then we arrived in Houston very late and the captain said we had to push back to 3 inches. That's ridiculous. We are already late and people up out of their seats and we had to go is down again."

Pros: "The crew communicated well to the passengers."
Cons: "I didn't get to Chicago until close to midnight, the flight to MSP was cancelled, and I missed my meeting the next morning. I understand you can't control the weather, but that didn't change the outcome for me."

Pros: "Friendly crew, flight was on time, and all went according to plan."

Pros: "On time, no problem flight. Seat next to mine was empty."
Cons: "Nothing"

They provided us with a wheelchair and someone to push it on our connections which made the transfer very nice. We got priority boarding. Finally the beer was cold, and I really appreciated that!"
