Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "easy boarding. crew was nice."
Cons: "terrible seats. no tv or chargers."
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."
Cons: "Guy beside me was always sitting to his friends."
Cons: "All was fine"
Cons: "Paid for and reserved bassinet seat but didn't receive bassinet seat. No one wanted to help. Very disappointed."
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "I wasn't aware beforehand that I could request a dairy free meal."
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: "The crew was very friendly and as I almost did not make my connection flight at FRA, I got bumped up to business class. So my seat was very comfy and the food was excellent."
Cons: "My only concern was my flight from BUD to FRA which was delqyed by 20 mins. So i had to rush to make my connection. I had less then 15mins to run from a gate B to gate Z58 and pass US passport control. Luckily I made the flight but my luggage did not. The 55mins layover is not a sufficient one considering the size of FRA airport especially when the first flight is late."
Cons: "Connection very very tight and stressful Had to run to connecting flight and just made it by <1 minute"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Baggage delivery was terrible given airplane so close. It took way too long to begin. Mechanism kept stopping. Frankfurt Airport needs serious upgrade. People movers need to be installed to get passengers through that huge terminal. Signs are also confusing. I’m glad I will be routed through a different airport on the way home."
Cons: "No volume on entertainment system for our row. But the crew were excellent - very professional, courteous and apologetic."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "First flight was canceled and we had a pleasure (after 12 hours flight from SJC to FRA) to spend another 11 hours in the airport."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "The service was amazing. Why can’t US carriers be like them?!"

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived ontime."
Cons: "Minor issue: entertainment computer did not work. I wasn’t able to watch TV for the 7hrs of plane ride. Also, the crew does not respond to the blue light when passengers call them."
Pros: "Clean plane.."
Cons: "I was very upset that from Kuwait to Frankfurt I paid in sir net but the speed was very bad . It's not fair to pay 15$ for that it's not fair. And I ask my money refund! And again they saying that speed is very good for watching YouTube and video streaming! Why Lie?? IT IS NOT FAIR!"
Pros: "Quick loading and departure."
Cons: "The gate changing 3 times."
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "They did it again, lost my bag for the emth time. But this time its seems to be more complicated than previous times this has happened. Just hope i’ll get my bag back eventually."
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: "On time, very pleasant crew, good, ample food."
Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent all around, really made the experience a pleasure. Also very helpful when I couldn't locate my wallet as I was preparing to deplane, both in terms of helping me look and explaining what I could do if it didn't turn up (eventually it did, before I disembarked)."
Cons: "The seats, while relatively comfortable on their own, were really jammed in; it felt cramped even as a smaller adult. And the boarding process in Washington seemed to take a very long time."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Food was poor, dried up and not enough for 10 hours flight. You did have the option to buy more."
Cons: "I was denied boarding on the Dublin to Munich leg of my connecting flight from Newark to Munich. My ticket was booked through Lufthansa, but the transatlantic leg of my trip was operated by United. When checking in with United in Newark, I received two boarding passes, one for each leg of the trip. I arrived on time in Dublin for my flight to Munich and tried to board the plane for Munich with the boarding pass I had printed in Newark. After scanning my ticket, the Lufthansa employees at the gate informed me that they had no record of me or my plane ticket in their system. I showed them the email confirmation for my ticket, but they still could not find any record of my ticket in their online system. The employees seemed more concerned with boarding all passengers as quickly as possible than assisting me. After being denied boarding, I had to go back through passport control to change my flight, and ended up getting to Munich nearly 6 hours behind schedule and missed an entire day of vacation. A Lufthansa employee told me that out of every partner in the STAR alliance, United is the ONLY airline they have had this problem with. I find this inexcusable, I will be AVOIDING ANY United/Lufthansa connecting flight from now on."
Cons: "leg space is mediocre (i'm 1,93m though)"
Cons: "I selected my seats online before the flight. It seems my seat assignments were changed (many other customers complained of the same issue). I have siliver status on United and was told that there was no way to be considered for upgrade to different seat. I was told that the list was already full of higher priority customers. Yet at the same time the same employee announced those seats were available for purchase at $200 Euro for others. It seemed in both cases Lufthansa shuffled around passengers out of their selected seats for unknow reasons and also werent honoring frequent flier status programs for changing seats. Furthermore, the in seat entertainment did not work and it took quite a bit of effort including trying to move seats to get the flight attendants to reset the system (they said it would affect other customers who didnt have problems with their entertainment system). 8+hour flight is long flight to not have the system working. eventually the fixed it a couple of hours into the flight."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Cons: "They change the gate for transfer last minute"
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."
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
Pros: "The after dinner cognac was nice."
Pros: "Excellent all around.!"
Cons: "Only complaint is the comfort of the seats on Airbus 380-800. Not as comfortable as on other airlnes/planes, especially given 10+ hours flight."
Pros: "Food/drink choices and portions were very generous on our long haul flight . Efficient boarding. Lots of entertainment options as well."
Cons: "It was a problem with one passenger, she came from another row and take two seats close to me and my daughter, she wanted to fly with comfort, so I told her it is not nice, this is not her seats and I have a kid with me and she should share wirh another people too, butshe was freeked out because I did a comment, than she asked me what country I'm from and I told: Russia. So she told me she could see why I so unclever...all Russian the same and laughing on me. I didn't expect so racist behavior and I stopped any conversation and complained to flight attendant. And I was double surprise! She went to her talked with her and than tell me that she could take any place she wants and she never told me any racist words, and maybe I'm a lier. I was so upset and I told a passenger that I can go to court when get back to US, she was really scared now and start sorry! But it was to late to sorry! When I asked flight attendant to sorry, she told she do not sorry!!! The flight was Monday October 3rd 2016 Lufthansa 459 San Francisco -Munich, name of flight attendant Eva-Katherine Pfaffel, the passenger seat 44 Diana or E I think, they didn't provide me information about name or her seat. The flight attendant told me it is not big dealing, maybe for Germany it is ok, but in US it is really rude, original I'm from Russia, my daughter too, additionally she is black, it will be really good if I never feel this again, I was in really helpless situation. It is really unpleasant when you spend money and get neglect."
Cons: "The plane was extremely small and uncomfortable. There were only two lavoratories for 60+ people, the other two being reserved only for the 10+ people in first class. As a result, throughout the whole flight there was a long waiting line in the plane's aisle, causing the crew to complain angrily in German, thinking we wouldn't understand what they're saying, because they couldn't go through easily."
Pros: "Among the most comfortable economy I've ever been on"
Cons: "too few toilet facilities for the plane section--and curtaining off other sections so one couldn't go to them"
Pros: "great 747-8 bird, modern, quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "same JFK with always delayed unboarding, wait for the gate and luggage, long lines to everything"
Pros: "Kostenlose Wein, Weinbrand usw. Und Sendungen von Bundeliga. The flight attendants were also very friendly."
Cons: "The controls on movie screen did not respond to touch very well."
