Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Everything was great!!!"
Cons: "The crew attitude!!! Instead of saying "excuse me" she said "can I pass" she was rude"
Pros: "The boarding process is very efficient."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s people are mostly good. But there are some obvious opportunities for people to be more friendly. Also, LH like many others continues to serve cold rolls and cold butter on international flights. KLM warms the rolls! It’s the one small touch that would make Lufthansa’s meal service so much nicer."
Pros: "N-o entertainment"
Pros: "More leg room than the A330-300 we took to fly from Charlotte to Munich."
Cons: "The ground crew. One young employee checking the boarding passes in Munich was rude and condescending."
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."
Cons: "They had overbooked the flight and asked to reroute me. I asked if I would still be able to get to my destination at the same time and to make sure I would have a window seat. Everything from the moment I said yes was a terrible. They rebooked me twice on two different routes when I was in the air. Said a steward would meet me (never happened) instead I was running to catch flights on different airlines in two different airports. The entire situation was disgusting. The running was with all of my luggage. Because of the rebooking I was in the last row of 75 rows on a plane with an additional connection. Every flight had delays creating more chaos for the next flight. The only helpful airline in the bunch was Delta."
Pros: "Crew friendly, good food"
Cons: "Cramped seating, can't select seat until checkin without paying (only airline we were unable to select seat)"
Pros: "Lufthansa delivers always a great service. Good timing, schedule and service!"
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Pros: "The seats are hard and we were packed like sardines in the back rows. Wish that they would pass out water more often, we were dehydrated and also cold. Choice of movies were ok. The kids movies were the best"
Cons: "Seat co figuration is awful especially for families. Got very warm on the pls rand then very cold."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, slightly relaxed reclining. Baggage delivered on time & without damage."
Cons: "Flight took after 1.5 hours delay , with 30 min incremental delay notifications. After take-off, food service started 2 or 2.5 hours later , they could have expdited it considering that the flight was delayed. Seats ,as I have come to expect from Lufthansa , were cramped laterally ,although i was pleasantly surprised with how much they reclined, given my low expectations. Main dish in the Food service was served hot but were quite minimal in taste/quantity & variety comapred to other inter-continental providers. I was feeling hungry most of the flight and couldnt sleep as well."
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight and the movies."
Cons: "I didnt like the crew, they was very caold and not pleasant at all. didnt like the food."
Pros: "Crew worked hard to make the journey pleasant, including the second crew for my connection to New York JFK, a much longer flight. Even some of the food was edible."
Pros: "I used to fly lufthansa for my europe travel for work about 15 years ago a lot and thought in recent years it may not have been as good but these flights made me appreciate Lufthansa anew. Crew extremely helpful and polite, always followed up to any requests. Instead of barking at us like United or American crew, they went out of their way to help my daughter get a makeshift icepack for some very painful bumps she got during our vacation. Crew also kept the bathrooms clean from time to time, which was a welcome relief for such a long flight. Desk staff/service desk also was helpful in directing us during the 5 hr layover to things at the airport itself that we could do. They also helped reprint the boarding pass and write down the baggage tags when security made me lose those by separating my wallet and boarding passes into mutliple bins."
Cons: "Phone service. When I tried to book my seats and meals, the lady kept getting things wrong, and ended up not getting me the seats I had specifically ended up asking for. So, when I arrived at the airport and printed my boarding cards, those were seats I did NOT want and all the service desks insisted that's what I asked for. No low carb meal option was surprising. Meal service sometimes felt like too close to each other else too far apart from snacks - didn't feel like we had enough time to digest and get some sleep, while at other times we were seeking out snacks.Overall good quality of food however."
Cons: "Crew Service, food,"
Pros: "SAS and BA can do better"
Pros: "the upgrade to plus. we will be selecting that option in the future now that we have experienced it. thank you"

Pros: "Still loads of leg room in economy which is great for a tall person like myself."
Cons: "The food, dinner and breakfast from Johannesburg to Frankfurt was not very nice and not the usual good standard."
Pros: "The crew were good and worked hard with what they had."
Cons: "The flight was more than 2 hours late, the entertainment system for the entire cabin paused every few seconds and they ran out of one of the food choices very early."
Cons: "The seat in front of mine was reclined in the already cramped space provided, twice as far back as any other seat I could see. Please look into the recline on that seat for future passengers. The crew hit my seat, repeatedly with their carts and did not remember to offer drinks to us as they pushed it by. The airlines should consider removing that seat as an option to passengers if there is not ample room for the flight crew to maneuver around it. It made for an unpleasant experience overall."
Cons: "Why Lufthansa changed my flight connection to where I needed a visa!? So the police treat me like a criminal?!?"
Pros: "Generally a smooth flight. My geographically knowledgeable friend pointing out towns, rivers, forests and places we visited in 2012 as we moved across Italy, the Swiss Alps and Germany. Delightful."
Pros: "Flight was 10 minutes late departing but a short flight time led to us arriving in CDG on time."
Cons: "Baggage delivery to carousel 6 at CDG took over 40 minutes with delivery coming in small batches......the flight time was shorter!"
Cons: "Staff was extremely sassy and unhelpful when I had been traveling for 40 hours."
Pros: "I appreciated the opportunity to purchase extra legroom in premium economy. It made the 10 flight more tolerable."

Pros: "Good staff and clean plane"
Cons: "Food was not good at all"
Pros: "Very prompt, good food. We encourage trip very much!"
"They didn’t notify anyone that the CDC had changed it’s entry requirements and cost me my flight. I will never fly with them again."
"Late departure, the plane was filthy since people were dropping lots of trash in the aisle. The bathrooms were almost unusable because people peed on the walls and floor, and left soaked bathroom paper on the floor and toilet. Most people ignored the crew and didn't wear masks, including people who were coughing."
Cons: "Business class"
Cons: "egyptair flight 985 no space between sets no social distancing very bad not comfortable flight"
Pros: "Boarding process was very smooth. Chairs were comfortable"
Cons: "Entertainment options in business class were more limited than those of American carriers. Also, food was just okay."

Cons: "Food wasn’t that good and there could have been better entertainment options (more movies, TV shows). Internet was terrible."
Cons: "Food was not it should be for business class"
Pros: "The flights were very good, friendly and professional. Planes were clean and seems to be well maintained for the passengers"
Cons: "Only issue I had was a 5 hour layover in Cairo, not long enough to explore so just sitting in the airport, and there is no wifi available in the airport, even at Starbucks nothing. Apparently an airport rule, but it sucks with a long layover."

Pros: "Good on flight entertainment."
Cons: "Stewardesses not too friendly... flight was late to board and take off by 2 hours."
Cons: "My reservation was 2 pieces luggage from Cairo to Kuwait and the same from Kuwait to Cairo ... when I went to the airport Egypt air told that my flight from Kuwait to Cairo just 1 piece and that because you didn’t reserve your ticket from Egypt air directly ... and that made a problem to me Thanks"
Cons: "We received our baggage 2 days later"
Cons: "The aircondition was not working since the very begining for 4 hours and even after was not fully cooling. It was hot"
Pros: "They were on time Greeting was nice Food OK (breakfast)"
Cons: "The time it took from the car to the airplane took more than 1 hour and 30 min. Totally unorganized check points with no crowed control or whatever. I think if they want more tourist in the future they have to work on that!"

Pros: "Bathroom was clean, food choices, good entertainment"
Cons: "Food was not hot, left late"
Cons: "I’m an older disabled man and no one was polite enough to even offer to assist me with my bag getting on it off plane."
Cons: "The same problem I see with Egyptair company, Flight attendants need to learn some manners how to deal with guests, and most importantly LEARN ENGLISH. These are just waitresses brought straight from some Bus company or Train company."
Cons: "Flight delayed for over two hours"
Cons: "When I asked the flight attendant for an extra snack, he proceeded to tell me he had none left when I could look directly into the tray and see that there was more than enough. After calling him out on this, he complied."
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "Flight was supposed to leave at 11 pm, did not start boarding until 11 pm and gave no announcements and information. Sign said on time the whole time."
Cons: "I complain to the manager and he doesn’t do anything about how the customer service treat us And if you know the manager you don’t charge for extra luggage - and if you don’t know him you charge for anything extra"
Pros: "Appreciate the breakfast that was served."
Cons: "Boarding process can be improved."
Pros: "Crew was super nice and helpful. Flight schedule was on time."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "It took over an hour to check-in. People were pushing in because it was not well marked and nobody directing the people. It was terrible. The plane has very old seats, and no entertainment screen on seats, still the old monitors hanging from the roof."
Pros: "Inexpensive fair."
Cons: "Little interaction with crew"
Pros: "Boarding process extremely fast, starting from check-in till boarding. Take-Off on time. Very smooth landing."
Cons: "Crew lacks practical experince, especially clear due to the that flight was almost fully booked. Some lack of control or responding to passengers eventually was clear."
Cons: "تاخير اكثر من 3 ساعات"
Pros: "The direct flight non stop Price"
Cons: "Not the greatest of comfortable seat - needs flat beds similar to Oman Air. Plane a little tired but very smooth landing In seat power didn't work"
Pros: "Confortable seats, good entertainment, attentive flight crew"
Cons: "Pilot didn't clearly communicate what the issues were for our delay. Safety rules and regulations were ignored by passengers and not enforced by crew (people walking aisles while plane was taxiing, passengers without seatbelts on during takeoff and landing, etc)"
Cons: "Please note the wrong gate was included on our ticket and announced shortly before the flight so passengers had to run from half way across the airport. Then there were two flights announced for the same gate even though the Baghdad flight was over an hour later. Therefore the gate was jam packed and passengers flying to Amman were unable to access the gate. In all it was complete chaos easily avoided by making sure to correctly identify gates (or leave blank) on tickets and to announce the second flight AFTER the first flight concluded boarding!"
Pros: "Service was great"
Pros: "Staff was attentive and welcoming"
Pros: "Overall the flight was good. The boarding process became a bit hectic in Joburg and arriving in Cairo was a mess too. Our baggage took too long to arrive on the belt and people were still waiting for their luggage after I had gotten mine. No one from EgyptAir told us anything which confused us even more. Next time have more organization and communication with passengers."
Cons: "It was cancelled. Spent 6 extra travel hours. Spent 3 days trying to rebook (ultimately successful)"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Crew - Very poor customer service"
Cons: "12 hours of delay without any kind of comensation"
Pros: "Boarded and left on time"
Cons: "Food was awful. It was so hot I was fanning myself. I had a 11 hour flight and than a 10 hour flight after both British airways, and the same exact food. So I just went hungry. I smelled something amazing so thought I would get a good hot meal as my last meal since I had not had anything in 9hours, but nope, just got a measly cold sandwich. I won’t book British airlines again for international travel, I’ll stick to emirates."
Cons: "Hardly saw a steward in business class the whole flight. Must be part of BA’s cost saving initiatives, but means you don’t get food on time, offered drinks or even a menu"
Cons: "You could have not cancelled my flight after rebooking a connection"
Cons: "Distance between seats on the low side i.e. not much leg room. TV screen again on the small size in comparison with other airlines. Ear phones poor build quality and sound. Plastic cutlery. Small meal trays. No hand wipes with meals. In comparison with other airlines BA is only an average carrier."
Pros: "The crew was good, very helpful."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable at all. I’m 6.0 and 150lb so not very big but my shoulders were already above the head rest. Also leg space was very poor. This was an American Airlines flight by the way. 777-300 airplane. I’ve had better flying experience before in the Same type of plane"
Pros: "Yes.. crew was awesome.. Wish they did not charge us for drinks the second time around"
Cons: "Free drinks throughout the entire flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"
Cons: "The people handling the boarding were rude and inefficient. Not a way to staty an 11 hour flight."
Pros: "Crew fantastic. Seats very cramped so hard when travelling alone with people crammed next to you. I am very short and still found seat cramped. Blankets skimpy. Heathrow to San Fran. Johannesburg to Heathrow was more comfortable."
Cons: "Most things I give a high rate on BA but travelling economy these days is very cramped especially as I did two long international legs with short four hour break between."
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "The flight was great and was on time. Down side, no entertainment at all."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"
Pros: "More legroom than other aircraft, plentiful IFE (in-flight entertainment), and a USB charging point in the seat back near the video screen. Decent food and wine, great crew."
Cons: "We departed the terminal for takeoff but a passenger had a medical emergency requiring a return to the gate and off-loading along with finding the passenger’s baggage down below. Not the airline’s fault, of course, but maybe passengers should carefully consider their health before embarking on an 11.5 hour flight from one continent to another."
Pros: "On time, attentive staff"
Pros: "Flight arrived 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Couldn’t check my bag through to another BA flight"
Cons: "5h before take off, it was impossible to have 2 seats next to another!!! we were even on different floors in the plane! the employees at the counter and then in the Heathrow airport were not able to join. on mentioned that the plane had been overbooked. I thought these practices had stopped. only the employee at the gate managed to move us to be at least on the same floor of the plane. very disappointed."
Pros: "Quick boarding, good crew."
Cons: "Greasy food."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "I loved the new modern plane. It was a bit more comfortable and conveniently designed. Less like a cattle truck and more like a luxury bus."
Pros: "There was no flight"
Cons: "The flight did not take off. What little information we were goven was inaccurate. We called and were rebooked on another flight without being told it was overbooked and our tickets were standby . Dozens of other passengers had the same experience"
Pros: "Crew great, Food great!"
Cons: "Flight has now been cancelled twice. Communication by BA has been lacking. Flight now scheduled to leave 48 hours later than scheduled.See above"
Pros: "Excellent flight. Staff very helpful and professional."
Pros: "Lots of delays due to technical problems with the plan. Had to be moved onto another plane. More than 3 hour delay."
Pros: "Hostess was very nice, helpful and friendly. entertainment was ok and pilot was very informative on delays and info. I think the comic relief video is a keeper. People tend to watch just to see the characters and reactions"
Cons: "Seats were to close together, really squashed, no space for 2 arms on the arm rests and leg room is rubbish. Food is wasn't bad.. could do with more on the trays, seems there have been some budget cuts. Continental breakfast option would be really nice."
Pros: "The staff helped me board and get better seating."
Cons: "There was only one meal through out. A few snacks here and there."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The meals were reasonably nice and the flight was on time"
Cons: "The entertainment screens were old and not clear and not easy to use. The crew was not efficient, not very friendly and not very accommodating. They offered minimal service, contrary to another crew on the A380 flight with BA going from LHR to JNB. Between flights, I guess I saw the better and the worse of BA."
Pros: "The crew was very sweet. The flight was super short so it was comfortable enough for the short flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour and a half. I had a 40 min delay with Alaska airlines 2 weeks ago and the min I arrived at my destination I had a text apologising for the delay. Along with a link to $100 credit with the airline. This is what real customer service is about. Not just empty apologies."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, the A380 is so much quieter than the usual 747 and really clean. We arrived on time."
Cons: "As a silver Avios member I've gotten used to the cabin crew calling me on my name when they come and talk to me. This time they spoke as little as possible and it was all incognito. They seemed to be more interested in various Facebook updates than working business class."
Pros: "Good food, good service, everything on time."
Cons: "I paid for an exit seat and didn't get one and then I had the only seat with no entertainment for 11 hours overnight and no Joyce to move"
Pros: "The information provided while waiting for the flight to take off was informative."
Cons: "I was not able to choose a better sit or buy an upgrade on line and this was not possible while checking in even though it show on line I could it did not allow me."
Pros: "We boarded almost 1hr early, took off on time and landed just before scheduled."
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Pros: "On time and accommodating"
Cons: "All ok"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Pros: "Great Crew, smooth operation. Efficient service."
Cons: "Boarded flight only to be unboarded at midnight: got to hotel 4am. Long delay in check in/appallingly disorganized. No communication from BA as to problem or when flight would go. Next day checked out of hotel and taken back to airport only to find flight not going as problem not fixed. Passengers taken back to hotel and checked in again! All this time, no official communication from BA. No attempt to reroute elderly passengers or those with small children. Very unimpressed"
Pros: "Very little. BA customer service is brusque and focussed on getting rid of you as quickly as possible."
Cons: "Trolley service - aside from poor range, high prices & getting missed as they weren't interested in service...."
Cons: "They did not do much to help accommodate us sitting together on the long flight. Poor food. Poor service."
Cons: "Seating configuration was ridiculous as flight attendants constantly leaning across me with trays and their arms nearly hitting my face. Seat & bed functions didn't work. Privacy screen was a joke!"
Pros: "I'm sure there was something but nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Lack of assistance regarding my missing belongings. Incorrect information relating to landing card to be completed when arriving in London. Stretching over me to pass food etc to passenger sitting facing other direction, and literally millimetres from my face, without any politeness having to do it. Configuration gives no privacy as you look at the passenger next to you. Functions of chair did not work. Pillow was thinner Than a piece of paper. Crew showed no concern."
Cons: "I HAVE FLOWN OFTEN ON OTHER AIRLINES & IT WAS THE FIRST TIME TO FIND OUT THAT BRITISH AIRWAYS ONLY ALLOWED ONE FREE CHECKED BAG AND I HAD TO PAY $200 WHEN I ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT, $100 FOR THE 2ND BAG & $100 BECAUSE IT EXCEEDED 51 LBS"
Pros: "Flight was great service good. Food was good as well."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and they provided great service."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Minimal meal service for a tras atlantic flight"
Cons: "Each rep we spoke to said they couldnt help us and to just open a support ticket online.. Kept telling us they dont have a customer service team who can help us and its only available online."
Cons: "breakfast was terrible. It was beans, mushrooms, and asparagus. It also came with 3 pieces of fruit. Coffee was also terrible. If you sitting in the middle seats there is no space. The man's arms sitting in the seat next to me were pretty much in my seat the whole time."
