Cons: "Considering that we’re in the middle of a pandemic no LH ground staff at Heathrow Airport was leading by example wearing protective equipment such as mask or gloves. Further, I found it inexplicably that almost every seat was taken on this flight. If LH knows that the flight is booked close to capacity I would have expected they do their part and due diligence by swapping to a bigger aircraft to help protect people and their customers, it’s not that they wouldn’t have other aircrafts grounded and ready to go... A reduced beverage service is all you can do, really? LH - very disappointing once again"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 40 minutes and arrived 2 hours later."

Pros: "Comfy seats in United Polaris"
Cons: "Crew didn’t ask enough for additional drinks (neither alcoholic nor water)."

Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."

Pros: "ok"
Cons: "reached in time for onward connection but the gate had closed 30 mins before and had to stay overnight in munich Lufthansa did poor job of communicating rebook on same day thr Delhi.By the time we got to see agent in service desk that connection thr Delhi was also not an option.veryfew counters muni"

Pros: "Very nice new clean airplane (beautiful), excellent crew"
Cons: "Lufthansa may consider reworking the boarding area"

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: "The leg space was great for economy class. There was room for bags in the overhead. The movie selection was great."
Cons: "Boarding via bus.... first bus had kids, business class, and people who needed help. Second bus had everyone else. Both waited on the tarmac for the plane to be ready and both busses opened the doors at the same time. The families were swamped while trying to load the plane with kids in tow."

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "Better movie selection."

Pros: "on time."
Cons: "nothing"

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: "Lots of legroom"
Cons: "As with most long-distance flights, the bathrooms got somewhat dirty though I did notice flight attendants on two occasions entering to clean them"

Pros: "The seat 16A is very comfortable and spacious. Most of the hosts were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "My screen did not function well and sound was very poor. I had to have my computer 'rebooted' two times. The second time was done by a gentleman who was a bit sarcastic when I asked if he could help me, as I had waited 20+ minutes for the help to get it going again. You need to update your system!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was canceled one hour before departure. There was no explanation except that the crew decided not to fly from Boston to Washington DC. We waited for two hours in a line to get rebooked. We lost our tickets on another flight connecting us to our final destination. Therefore, we had to re-book that flight and incur charges. Lufthansa Considers this consequential loss not responsible for fees incurred. This service is unacceptable and will make us reconsider ever flying this airline again."

Cons: "So there was a 2 hours delay in Dallas which resulted in 11 hours delay in Frankfurt .. this trip was horrible how did they dare do that to the passengers.. they should have gotten us a place to rest but we were left on the chairs in the airport.. will never fly Lufthansa anymore"

Pros: "Excellent service and food"

Pros: "Nothing. It was ok at best which is fine on a good day."
Cons: "Flight out was late due to the bus being late picking up the crew. We had to run for our connections. On the way back we were delayed again , leaving 20 minutes to make our connection. Security at Frankfurt was so poor. Of the potential number of lines available, there were only two operating despite the number of passengers, most of whom were late for their connections. It took us over 30 minutes to get through. Luckily the connecting flight was delayed over an hour."

Cons: "Had to run thru airport to catch plane, thn long wait to board."

Pros: "Crew was great, boarding great, honored request for vegan meals"
Cons: "8+ hour flight is difficult with limited leg room- United is spending so much money putting Pod seating (or laying) options up front .... but Economy seats are ridiculous. Clearly we are. It that important. Row 34 window seat has a big metal box so Zero legroom"

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."

Pros: "Smooth and comfortable flight . Awesome service by the crew"

Pros: "Pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "DREADFUL seats for the price. Small, coffin-like affairs packed together like proverbial sardines. I can't believe there are still middle seats for this price on a modern wide body aircraft. I was on the inside and had to step over my neighbor. The food choices were so unappetizing that I opted not to eat. I usually fly SAS business class, and based on this experience with United, I will go straight back to SAS. They offer better service, better menu choices, and first class seating for the same price. Easy decision."

Pros: "boarding area was bit confusing"

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"

Pros: "On time-well organized!"

Pros: "Pleasant efficient crew and although we had a late departure the pilot made up the time and we did not miss our connection"

Pros: "Loved flying business class. Great service! Flight was on time for departure and arrival."

Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"

Cons: "The food is not tasty"

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: "The crew was nice and boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and with few choices. Food was awful."

Cons: "Requested vegetarian and was served vegan"

Cons: "crew was not friendly"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Crew very rude unlikely Lufthansa"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."

Pros: "Lufthansa certainly stands out above ALL American carriers"

Pros: "good atmosphere at the terminal"
Cons: "Workers at the stores in the airport. The money confusion. best to use credit card not euro... a bit sneaky giving a euro and getting back Polish moneys..."

Pros: "in-flight service was fine"
Cons: "Very poor ground staff at the check-in counter. Made me pay 2nd bag fee of $100 at the time of check-in, despite the airline rules allowing 2 free checked bags. The staff including the supervisor were so un-cooperative and rude. The supervisor snapped at me by saying that I was not doing the airline any favor by flying Lufthansa. At that point I just gave up and paid the totally unjust fee. Took me to a back room to pay the fees, where the credit card machine and even the printer wasn't working. ...... very bad experience EVER !!!"

Cons: "The whole trip was a nightmare. I go out of my way to NOT fly United, In this case Lufthansa somehow just sold the ticket and United was flying it and as usual it was horrendous. We had to be re-routed via 3 separate flights jus to make our international connection thanks to our initial flight being moved up 2 hours EARLY. They closed the door in our faces. That added 8 hours of travel time to our trip which I had booked to minimize travel time as I was traveling with pets. United is the WORST."

Cons: "The business class is not really a business class, and the chairs are not comfortable. Moreover, there was no entertainment. During the boarding there was no distinction between Business and Economy class. There should be an opportunity for business class to board at any time."

Pros: "Friendly service, everything very organized, calm atmosphere on board"
Cons: "Entertainment options pretty limited, personnel at check in for flight rather rude"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to the pilots' strike. I only learned about this when I attempted online check in. Lufthansa never attempted to notify me. Then when I called in to the Romania Service Center to rebook, the phones went down in the middle of the call. That is understandable given the extreme volume of calls they were handling. What is unacceptable, is that they made no attempt to contact me once the phones were up. I ended up calling the U.S. service center at 1am local time to rebook...only 3 hours before I needed to leave for the airport. It took an hour - which I paid for at direct dial international rates - to find a flight. I'm very grateful for the U.S. service rep who was kind and helpful. She was the one bright spot in this poorly handled situation."

Pros: "in flight entertainment, bathrooms, and charging capability"
Cons: "Not enough service/availability of water"

Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Boarding process was unclear."

Pros: "crew was nice and that we arrived safe"
Cons: "super crowded flight with many crying children food was bad and not enough"

Pros: "Short flight so it was good"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Thank you for the great experience!"

Pros: "Very accomdating crew"
