Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew positive attitude"
Cons: "We understand the COVID-19 crisis but a drink on board other than water will not have bid cost impact on Air Canada, for instance juice or cola,... Also, access on internet on board is now payable -$25 for the flight is exaggerated, it should be free knowing the limited number of passengers on board"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "The crew was efficient. They seemed to care about the passengers' comfort. Also, even though the flight left late, they made up the time while in the air. They are the reason with I gave the excellent rating, despite some other misgivings."
Cons: "Lufthansa food service seems to have been deteriorated somewhat over the recent past. Especially the snack before landing seems laden with mayo (plain bread might have been better!)."
Pros: "The crew should treat better passengers but overall is been good"
Cons: "Overall is been good"
Pros: "Thanks for the good care."
Cons: "Beta information for the flight"
Pros: "Crew was good, not amazing but Food was a disaster. I can't believe an airline of Lufthansa's repute has bad food and even mediocre in flight entertainment. Compare that to any asian or middle-east airline, Lufthansa is 20 years behind in terms of it's service?"
Cons: "Lufthansa please don't follow the US-based airlines model of greed and profit. Have some decency and don't tarnish your brand."
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 crew was great and the snacks provided were delicious!"
Cons: "The plane felt slightly outdated and was pretty loud the first part of the flight"
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "Crew was nice. I will go again with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Crew were very good and helpful. Efficient and very helpful."
Cons: "It looks like Lufthansa has decided to make business class more like "Premium Economy" with lie flat seats. 1) Food was very average with very little selection. 2) Dessert was a joke - other airlines have ice cream sundaes 3) NO HANDICAP BATHROOM. Must be illegal. FAA require Disability access by Disabilities Act. 4) Amenities kit - worst I have seen in all the airlines I have traveled. 5) Snack bar - No selection, just small chocolate, water and orange juice. Even economy planes like Jet Blue have better selection. German people are getting used to mediocrity and I am surprised. World class airline with cheap customer side product. Don't cut costs on things that customers see, touch and eat. To add to that, my mother in law is handicapped. When transferring her to the gate, they took her in a bus and did not strap the wheel chairs next to her chair. All of them fell on her - YES! THEY ALL FELL FROM A HEIGHT ON A HANDICAPPED PERSON WHO HAS ARTHRITIS AND IN PAIN ALL THE TIME. Damaged her knee joints. This is why we travel business class - and they hurt her more than if we took her our selves."
Pros: "Very friendly people. Security guy helped me to get to the wifi at the airport. I could spend my waiting time very productive way sorting out my business emails:)"
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."
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "Did not make this flight due to lines at Frankfurt security. Customer service has been awful, had to wait two hours to speak to anyone and ended up purchasing another flight because they sold out of all decent connections."
Cons: "This has been the worst customer service experience of my life. Never flying Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Arriving on time."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly as always."
Cons: "I didn't like having to wait on the plane for 5 hours while the plane was being worked on while still on ground at Denver International airport. I really didn't like that once arriving in Frankfurt International airport and missing my connecting flight I was provided a voucher for food that was worth 10 euros which wasn't enough to get a meal only a snack. I read an article on the plane on how well Lufthansa Airlines is doing and how much money they made but yet they have been giving the same amount on vouchers for a very long time."
Cons: "there was delay of 2 hours and i missed my plain to next destination"
Cons: "Weather delay caused us (and hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of other travelllers) to miss connections. Lufthansa lost our luggage, and to get rid of us, told us they would send it to the hotel we had to check into on account of the overnight delay. They never delivered the luggage, and other employees later told us over the phone that this was not going to happen. The terminal was filled with tired and frustrated travelers, and to make matters worse, the Lufthansa staff were temperamental and condescending to many. At the peak of the chaos, the Lufthansa staff went out on break, while hundreds waited in line for over 8 hours. We expected more - much more - in one of Lufthansa’s own German domestic hubs."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE"
Cons: "Dropped us off in random country for two days with no information and missing 3 days of our trip and losing money on the trip we paid for. Limited information given to us once they abandoned us following the “emergency landing” that the pilot was “sick” stuck here over 24 hours and now my new flight is overbooked and my boyfriend has a seat but I DO NOT."
Pros: "Efficient, on time and many updates to our email address. Fabulous customer service."
Cons: "Limited choice of types of meal - no vegetarian option."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "Everything was on time, the flight crew was unbelievably friendly, and the flight was empty which made it comfortable and very relaxing!! Highly recommend."
Pros: "very professional cabin crew"
Cons: "The overhead bins are way too small, and they ran out of the vegetarian dinner option. There are no longer air controls for each seat, and the plane was quite cold."
Cons: "The passenger behaind, was a tall guy. All the 7 hours flight i had to fight him to allow me puting my back sest dowm on his hearting legs. Why didnt hay extra and seat where it fits his size?"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Cons: "I missed my dlight from Chicago to Nashville because the flight was late"
Pros: "Very comfortable aircrafts from FRA to FAR and back. Nice service, nice staff"
Cons: "The food becoming worse and worse each time.. I think it is better to Lufthansa to reduce price of the ticket and do not serve such kind of burgers.. Or improve the quality of food if they still positioning as the one of the best airlines."
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: "Great crew service"
Pros: "Did not get into flight"
Cons: "They changed the gate in last minute without proper communication"
Pros: "Excellent, travel only with LH"
Cons: "The plane was a very noisy on take off."
Pros: "I loved the ample number of bathrooms and their cleanliness. This was hugely important to me and would be reason enough to choose Lufthansa (and not Swiss Air) again. The families-first boarding made our flight much more pleasant than we'd expected. In all my travels, it's rare for me to have two pleasantly astounding experiences in the same flight. Thank you for your improvements of bathrooms, Lufthansa!"
Cons: "Other airlines have flight attendants who are a bit warmer and more responsive to children. That's one area where Swiss Air came out on top."
Cons: "Flight was delayed want to take off. Luggage did not transfer. Four days before luggage will get to us."
Cons: "A man sitting behind me probably took off his shoes and it was just terrible to smell his stinky feet..."
Pros: "The check in process was fast and pleasant. Boarding was fast and organized. Food and drinks were good."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable for such a long flight. Simply terrible."
Pros: "The first leg of our flight came in late, but the staff at the airport already had someone waiting for us by the gate to escort us to the connecting flight. And the staff was extremely organized and transported our luggage so that it made it to the final destination with us. All this happened in under 30 minutes. Great service"
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Nothing, this flight never happened because of the strike."
Cons: "Luthansa rebooked me on BA, and stripped away my Premium Upgrade seating, giving me economy, an aisle seat next to a bathing-challenged male. It was disgusting and re-injured my leg wound."
Pros: "Staff was very attentive to the children. Ability to follow the flight with the cameras. Person in front of us leaned his seat back and I was unable to get out due to an injured left arm. He did agree to move forward when we requested."
Cons: "No choice on food. Bathroom ran out of toilet paper, even tho we had reported that it was getting low."
Pros: "Crew attitude - so much better than on the indifferent and even hostile US carriers"
Pros: "They have some films with subtitles- perfect for Deaf people."
Cons: "Wish all films have subtitles- there are millions of deaf people in the world, you know?"
Pros: "Pleasantly greeted"
Cons: "Lack of space makes flying pure torture. When will airrlines get it regarding customer needs?! Crew not accessible in between serving times"
Pros: "The crew was so pleasant, the seats reclined extremely comfortably, the TV and movie selection was great, the food service was prompt and I never felt like I was bugging them if you asked for something extra (not that you needed to ask cause they made frequent multiple trips down the aisles)"
