Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was brilliant"
Pros: "Crew was very warm and friendly"
Cons: "The experience in the Frankfurt airport was terrible! We had arrived from Rome with an hour between landing and boarding. When we were directed to security at Gate Z, there was a huge mob of people, not really in lines. We didn’t know what we were waiting for or where to stand, but we and others around us were very worried about missing our next flight. There was no Lufthansa representative to help. Finally someone directed some of us to a long roundabout back way to Gate Z security. We did get to our gate in time for boarding, only because it had been delayed. Then we sat in the plane for over half an hour. Altogether, it took off more than an hour late, so we missed our flight from Chicago to Minneapolis."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "The crew was the best"
Cons: "The airline cancelled my ticket because they said I was not on my earlier flight two weeks prior. This was absolutely not true. I had taken the flight and also checked bags. For an airline to cancel someones tickets and not notify them is highly unethical."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Service was great. Seats were spacious and comfortable. Smooth plane ride."
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:)"
Cons: "never got to goddamn frankfurt"
Cons: "Miss the flight due to too short of transfer time. As a professional you guys should know better to have such tight transfer time. I want credit for my major inconvenience"
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Cons: "Flight delay due to connecting flight"
Cons: "I didn't fly with Lufthansa...n I didn't fly to Frankfurt..right now I'm in Zurich...Switzerland..."
Cons: "There were 7 families each with multiple young children who screamed and misbehaved the whole trip. After complaining, the staff did nothing. Bad trip!"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Cons: "We had to fly to mun because it was delay from florence"
Pros: "We left on time"
Cons: "Tight legs space"
Pros: "While seat did give more leg room, we were still squashed. the guy next to me was a little on the heavy side and he could barely fit in the seat. We had no place to put our arms."
Cons: "we had to go down stairs to gain access to plane; they waited forever to board. supper selections were mediocre at best."
Cons: "Didn't happen yet."
Pros: "Staff was very attentive and friendly. Great service and staff always had a smile on their faces."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "Service and comfort"
Cons: "The food was not enough, not taste. For 11 hours only two meals. I wanted to change my meal with another they refused"
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."
Pros: "Smooth flight. No delay, no unpleasant surprise."
Cons: "Ridiculous policy that couldn't get seat until 23 hours in advance, then that wasn't even true. Then misinformed me about what kind of seat I had been assigned. Then insisted I check a bag that did not need to be checked. Then the food was inedible. Flight happened to be late so I missed my connection, and they offered some more misinformation in that regard; There were of course human beings (staff) to deal with, but they had been reduced by Lufthansa's rules and systems so they were just robots, repeating over and over again inflexible policies. Horrible!"
Pros: "Flight was uneventful, which is what you want!"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "-flight delays-no information provided-no information on gate changes-"
Pros: "as usual flight itself was okay"
Cons: "the flight was delayed by 50 min reason was because the flight crew was stuck in a traffic jam from kiev city centre to airport by 1h. the flight crew stayed overnight in Kiev city centre which is 30-40 min drive away from city centre and had time to own accord to have a walk around the city centre in the morning. So I wonder why the crew cannot travel earlier to airport taking into account potential traffic jams. Knowingly I trvaelled to the airport about 2.5h before departure and made it perfectly on time to the airport, even though working in the morning, whereas the crew couldnt make it. maybe Lufthansa should change their crew hotel policy in particular for towns with notorious traffic jams like Kiev.."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, good blankets and lighting. Perfect for what I needed."
Pros: "Food was great, as was entertainment interface on tv."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "They know what they're doing!!"
Cons: "No complaints at all!"
Cons: "Flight delay for over an hour with United"
Pros: "I witnessed the flight crew defuse a conflict between two male passengers (that had escalated to shouting and throwing each others belongings out of overhead storage) before we left Frankfurt. A male steward showed he could be professionally stern when backing up a female coworker handling the situation and compassionate when he comforted an elderly woman in distress halfway through the intercontinental flight. The entire crew I interacted with in economy class were professional, friendly, welcoming, and helpful."
Cons: "Boarding the entire plane at once was inefficient and caused conflicts over the availability of overhead storage. Obviously this is an airline decision and not a flight specific problem."
Pros: "Courteous and professional."
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: "Clean modern aircraft. Attentive and friendly service. Decent snack."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly joyful, happy and patient. Always a smile throughout the long flight. Very willing to help. Nice new planes, liked the lower galley for restrooms. Very much appreciated the warm face towels at beginning of flight...would really appreciate a warm face towel at end of flight too. Good amount of water available throughout the flight, sometimes airlines are way too limited on amount of water they make available. Appreciated the wine and aperitif as well. Excellent flight! Would try to fly Lufthansa again!"
Pros: "Lufthansa is one of few airlines in Europe with pure class and excellent service. Even in economy!"
Pros: "There are some lounge seats for sleeping. There are power ports next to these seats"
Cons: "€5 for a Fanta in the airport. Food choices are limited and expensive. Next time I'll buy food in Sweden. Shockingly, it's cheaper"
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."
Pros: "A little unhappy looking stewardesses but politely professional."
Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Pros: "Good selection of tv shows and movies. Comfortable seats. Pleasant service."
Cons: "The food was awful - basically inedible. I fly quite a bit, different airlines, and this was the worst I've ever seen/tasted."
Pros: "Flight was quick."
Cons: "I wish ALL airlines would simply board by rows starting from the rear, boarding speeds would be significantly sped up. Process as it stands is chaotic and wastes a lot of time unnecessarily."
Pros: "Being assigned seat only ten minutes before take off is not ideal"
