Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Nothing was good, Soeacial meal Asian food was pathetic no taste completely bland. Boarding was chaos, too many confusions and crew was clueless. Will never fly A380 again as there are too many passengers and airline don’t know how to handle. On arriving in DEL the baggage room 2:30 hrs to come. Totally disappointed. Lufthansa has no control whatsoever they don’t even care."
Cons: "Everything related to flight could have been better. I have flown Lufthansa multiple times in the past never had such drastic issues like this time. Completely disappointed. Should have booked Qatar instead."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Delayed departure resulting in missed connection. 2 hours in lineup and ‘service’ from Lufthansa. Rebooked through Zürich with overnight there - had to find own hotel as they said all the ones on their list were booked. Will not be using this airline for a long time ( they lost our luggage for 4 da"
Pros: "The crew was great. Seating was a little uncomfortable."
Cons: "Food was not so good."
Cons: "All things were beyond airline control. Screaming children, weather delay, and moderate to heavy turbulence. Wind shear off the deck required pilot to punch through and stick the landing, but recovers well."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants got impatient with a few passengers."
Pros: "Flight delayed leaving, but arrived on time"
Cons: "Food was so-so. Didn’t know wireless headphones were not compatible with inflight movies. Flight attendants seemed grumpy"
Cons: "Was the worse food that I was served on a international flight."
Pros: "Sandwiches seeved"
Cons: "Plane was 1/2 hr late due to computer issues"
Pros: "The seating configuration was ideal (2-3-2)"
Cons: "I havent gotten on a flight yet."
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "There was an issue with my ticket, so they were kind enough to upgrade me AND my husband to business class for the flight. Absolutely my favorite airline for their superb service"
Pros: "We originally paid for seats a month before and were told to move seats because the plane was full. Plane was not full. Would like refund."
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Lufthansa and SAS. A great combination."
Cons: "Nothing to not like."
Pros: "Very professional crew.efficiently run. I spent extra for additional legroom in economy class and would have been comfortable but it I was seated next to a very large person which created a seating space reduced by a third. I was miserable the entire time by the man leaning into me. Not exactly the airlines fault."
Pros: "Seating, cleanliness, crew courteousy, entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding process unclear, poor announcement, and messy. No wifi, choice and quality of food. Entertainment was erratic at times."
Pros: "Toilet facilities"
Cons: "See above"
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."
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"
Pros: "overall good flight"
Cons: "5 hours delay in take off from frankfurt. reason - ice on plane wings. snow in frankfurt is not uncommon, and lufthansa needs 5 hours to clear ice? and why board people in the plane when you know you can't fly ?"
Pros: "Plane didn't crash."
Cons: "No leg room. Seats to narrow. Food mediocre."
Cons: "The flight was transferred to a smaller plane, either because there were few passengers (the first story we heard) or because of mechanical problems on the original craft (the second story). Business class was oversold as a result, and boarding was delayed for an hour while they waited for enough BC passengers to accept 800 euros for the downgrade to economy plus. They repeatedly threatened to cancel the flight rather than raise the offer. Eventually enough knuckled under and we were allowed to leave. Some no doubt missed connections because of this petty brinkmanship. The funny coda is that because the plane was so undersold, anyone in economy that wanted their own row could have one, while economy plus was packed with the embittered and downgraded."
Pros: "I Luz Myriam will give to Lufthansa 10 qualification!!! in Overall, Boarding, Crew, Food , Entertainment, but 8 about Confort"
Cons: "Just the air conditions was too cold I asked the attendant if can warm my place a little, but she told me the other passenger are warm, she doesn't take care about me, NOT COOL!!"
Pros: "Once onboard the flight was excellent and trouble-free. The crew were efficient and pleasant to passengers. I must give a big credit to Lufthansa for its great on-board entertainment system and good quality screens."
Cons: "Boarding in San Jose: For the first time I saw a Lufthansa person physically checking the weight of cabin backage at the gate. This was was not very pleasant experience as he approached us asking questions why we had so much cabin baggage, when our children were in bathroom and assumed me and my wife had 4 pieces of baggage, when we had 1 each and then left without apologising."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
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."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "That my seat was broken the whole time. I have a spinal injure and need to rotate positions while sitting. My seat was broken and my back hurt badly."
Cons: "I fly Lufthansa several times each year. This flight was the worst I can recall. My husband and I purchased exit row seats for additional leg room only to discover that an additional row was added in front of us for people with babies. We were squished behind them with very little leg room. We were surrounded by several babies, all of them crying constantly; this was totally ignored by both the parents and the crew. I was ready to start crying loudly myself, wondering if anyone would pay attention to that. We ordered special meals online but were served regular ones. When I told the attendant that we should be getting special meals, he peevishly and defensively said "you should have told me". These meals are normally served without any special prompts, so I have no idea why he was so angry with me! The crew practically hid from all the crying babies and was avoiding our section of the plane for around six hours. No water served, no one checking on anything. Lastly, my suitcase was cracked and needs to be discarded. altogether: a horror."
Pros: "Without a doubt, the flight crew on this flight was amazing. They went out of their way to assist everyone and make sure that people had whatever they needed."
Cons: "The chairs were small, even though we upgraded to economy plus, and the outlets and my tv screen did not work. On a 10 hour flight, that's a big deal! It seems like I paid extra to get less. Terrible!"
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
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: "Online check in is efficient, staff both at the airport and on board are friendly and helpful. Seats (economy) are OK. Onboard entertainment is good (good choice of films, TV shows and games)"
Cons: "Food - as usual airline food is mostly inedible and unappealing. I usually eat at the airport before the flight and skip the meal onboard."
Cons: "At the boarding que there was a Lufthansa employee singling out carry on bags for gate check, when they would clearly fit in the overhead. She addressed me and others in a curt and arguably rude tone of voice and mannerisms. No further instruction was given for the gate check process, hence I rolled the small suitcase to the entry of the aircraft, where the Purser asked why I would wish to check the bag. When I recounted the story, he chuckled and said, bring it aboard, there is no reason to check that bag."
Pros: "I was especially please with the service from the crew. The cognac was wonderful and "reasonably" poured. The food was fantastic"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike..."
Cons: "They allow you to pull out your own laptop and access their wifi and entertainment content but provide no outlets to charge your device to do so"
Cons: "I was rerouted to Munich from Amman because I missed my connection to Berlin due to a late aircraft. Once in Munich there was no one at the Royal Jordanian booking desk to direct me. This was even after staff was pages by the airport help desk. On a hunch And out of desperation to get to my destination I went to another airlines desk and they found they had a reservation for me, made by Royal Jordanian. I was never informed of this and had I known sooner I wouldn't have wasted so much time waiting at their desk."
Cons: "There was no entertainment service on the flught"
Pros: "Nice plane, fast boarding, more room."
Cons: "Needs more lavatories"
Cons: "I wanted to check 2 bags, even though you only get one free checked bag for economy international. The desk agent at check-in wouldn't check my second bag and didn't know how much the fee even was for the second bag. She was not exactly pleasant, which might have been because it was 430 in the morning but still. I just ended up carrying on two pretty big bags. The crew ended up gate checking one for me in Frankfurt which was nice. But I would have paid not to carry that dumb thing around with me through the giant Frankfurt airport. Other than the one desk woman in Prague, everything else was good."
Pros: "flight attendants were very nice, helpful, and accountable. I wish every flight had them on their crew."
Pros: "Everything was very good. Plane and crew were very helpful."
Cons: "The cushion at the top of the seat was a little awkward for us. It forced our head to tilt slightly forward. Our seats also reclined slightly less than we'd like. I'm guessing this is an ongoing problem with all airlines so I wouldn't let this affect any choices about the airline."
Pros: "South African Airways upgraded me to a business class seat. The food was pretty good, and the crew was great."
Cons: "We were worried that our luggage would not make it to our final destination just as it had not arrived on-time at the beginning of our trip from Phila. We were enraged that after printing out our boarding tickets for our 12/21/15, 5:50pm Luthansa Flight to Frankfurt, Germany, that the flight was cancelled the next morning. We were rebooked on American Airlines through Paris, which could not guarantee us a seat on AirFrance to our final destination, Venice, Italy. Next, our baggage did not arrive when we got to Venice and after filling out the claim form for lost luggage and following the directions for following up, Air France never called, sent a text or emailed us when the baggage arrived the next day. Returning from Venice to Frankfurt on 1/1/16, and then on to Philadelphia was a crowded flight, with a wailing baby for much of the trip. We were apprehensive, once again worrying that our baggage would not be on the plane and at the airport in Phila., when we arrived. Though we enjoyed ourselves visiting relatives in Vicenza, Lufthansa made our journey tense, and wrought with anxiety."
Pros: "On time and clean"
Cons: "Small amount leg room"
Pros: "They were friendly. Seats are rarely comfortable..."
Cons: "I think all planes need better leg room...."
Cons: "Airplane tire had to be replaced. Even though this was done fast, the flight was quite delayed."
Pros: "Nothing...I missed this flight due to negligence, miscommunication, and incompetence by the front desk agents."
Cons: "90 minute delay almost caused missed connection"
Pros: "Never made it."
Cons: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable with plenty of legroom. Crew were extremely friendly and accommodating. Flight was a little late leaving but made up list time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats were too narrow, not enough restrooms."
Cons: "not delayed would surely have been better"
Cons: "outlets for each seat, more space, timely manner,"
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Cons: "THERE was NO flight! WTF were you sending me reminders for!!!!! There was complete disruption here, preparing for a surprise flight that did NOT exist!"
Cons: "I was lead to believe I was booking a flight on lufthansa. It turned out it was United in a confirmation email a few weeks following the purchase. Then 24 hours prior to boarding, a notification comes in that I am flying Air Brussels. This leaves me with confusion - which airport terminal to go to, where to check in, who to call, etc. When I finally arrive to the airport at JFK, I find there is no Air Brussels Check in and that I need to go to United. But United no longer operates out of JFK, so I was finally directed to the British Airways terminal to check in with Eurowings. The flight was supposedly a Eurowings flight in collaboration with Lufthansa and United but operated by Brussels Airlines. I’ve never before experienced this miscommunication and confusion with one single flight, especially in my home country. When I booked the flight, it was quite clear it was Lufthansa and I paid Lufthansa prices. I was very disappointed overall with the experience leading me up to boarding time and had I known it was not a Lufthansa plane and crew, I would not have booked it. I hope you can I understand my frustration as this was poorly communicated and manasged and was quite misleading from the start. I would appreciate some compensation or recognition for the confusion as I will no longer be using Kayak or third party booking sites due to the way this was handled. I am a loyal Kayak user, but this was just too much and nothing like I’ve ever experienced before."
Cons: "We were delayed to no fault of the airline"
Cons: "Not atypical of this airline and flight, we sat on the tarmac for 1 hr 45 minutes after boarding for a repair."
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "I understand in today's world co chairing is norm. However I booked LH because of my past experience with their service which is great. We got put on UA instead and that was a let down. The food on the flight to FRA was terrible (and I am comparing to other airline food, not what we eat at home). They do not have drinks as LH does unless you pay. So I did not enjoy getting stuck with UA"
Cons: "Luggage took 30 minutes to get to pickup and it was covered in vinegar. The snacks on the ride really stink. A little bag of pretzels. Boarding and I boarding took forever"
Pros: "Very good flight, good service and good night of rest."
Pros: "I finally got there a day later"
Cons: "No gate number listed on boarding passes in SYR plane arrived and departed early with no communication to myself. Missed the flight"
Pros: "Easy, convenient and everyone is nice and accommodating. We always get to SFO under an hour"
Cons: "Long lines at the terminal that's primarily United; overbooked and needed volunteers to give up their seats which caused a 40 minute delay; uncomfortable seats and waited for 45 minutes on the tarmac because apparently they can't connect to the gate in the rain"
Pros: "United customer service was able to to find alternative flights"
Cons: "My flights going to and coming back from New Orleans got delayed by a large amount of time both ways at nearly the last minute"
Pros: "Overall my experience was about the smoothest I've had in years. Unlike those smaller/cheaper airlines. I'll never fly them again. United has brought back the pleasure of flying coast to coast."
Cons: "What I didn't like, well it now seems to be the norm, but why on earth don't the airlines provide meals to everyone onboard. It would be nice to receive a box lunch or snack, more than just a minunt size bag of trail mix. We do pay a lot of money for these flights. It's. it like the planes are leaving the gates half full anymore, so I know they're making money. Feed us more than a snack please. Ok that's my load off my chest."
Pros: "Boarding, take off and arrival time. Flight arrived before schedule."
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "Got in early"
Cons: "Old plane, inattentive crew, wireless entertainment did not work; heavy baggage fell on my head as passenger yanked open a luggage compartment."
Pros: "Over it was good even with the late departer Do to constitution on one of the runways Causing our plane to be delayed due to the Previous flight being late getting to the gate."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like except for a baby Crying which we don't have any control over it But people need to deal with it."
Pros: "Flight crew very helpful"
Cons: "Not enough storage space"
Pros: "Seating adequate for short haul flight for standard economy seating."
Cons: "Lack of overhead bins even for Group 5 boarders. Boarding area is crowded because of the number gates serviced at this particular terminal."
Pros: "Food was edible, nothing special"
Cons: "Boarding was very slow, as was cabin staff. Not very attentive. Made a big deal about letting passengers with connections off first, although we arrived. We waited, as requested. Finally got up,after realizing everyone in the 20'rows behind us was gone."
Pros: "Very windy decent into denver but pilots and crew were great."
Pros: "Spacious seating and friendly crew"
Cons: "Pay for wifi"
Pros: "The first plane had enough leg room"
Cons: "That the plane needed to be changed due to something being wrong with it. On our flight from cancun, Mexico to SFO we had to stop in Houston to change planes. One of the guys working at the security check point was very mean, raising his voice to people, grabbing their and also my stuff out of their hands, some of my stuff fell on the floor and got stuck in the rolling thingies. I hope I found all of it, not sure. I'm not sure how this happened, shouldn't planes be checked thoroughly before heading out!?!? This all is a big mess and very upsetting (literally just cried for 20 minutes). Sincerely, Sabrina Jungclaus S.email@example.com"
Pros: "Crew was nice just snacks flight was turbulent no one fault"
Cons: "We were delayed 3 hours due to the air conditioning. It was absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Attractive staff very professional."
Cons: "No leg room and tight seats. Adequate but a tight fit. We travel with my husbands 72 lb lab seeing eye dog and we really needed a free area for him, but he was able to squeeze under. This was very uncomfortable for us. They offered the aisle row person a chance for another seat in the rear, which of course was declined and I can't fault her."
Cons: "The TV control was on the left side covered by the middle person arm during the complete flight"
Cons: "Completely missed meeting due to 6 changes made during flight - Ask for a refund of some sort and non was given - not even air-miles or ticket recognition. Customer service from United was almost non existent. Will not be flying with united ever again."
Pros: "Comfort and service was right on target"
Cons: "Never flying United again. On my way to the airport in Portland I got a text from United that my flight to Newark had been cancelled and there was no way to fly me out of Portland to San Diego that day. My sister had to drive me to Boston so I could catch a flight to San Francisco, which took 6.5 hours because it flew over most of Canada for some reason AND had three babies that cried from start to finish. Oh and because I was a late addition, I had a middle seat. The second I turned my phone on after we landed I had another yet another text from United saying that my connection to San Diego had been delayed three hours and wouldn't take off until 11:15 pm."
Cons: "seats were extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Well organized, enjoyable flight"
Pros: "That it was a short flight"
Cons: "Yet another delay. It took me a total of over 30 to FLY across country with United. I could have driven in that amount of time."
Pros: "Every moment was great. We arrived early to LA and we had great service. Best part was LAX and their new terminal for customs. Perfect and beautiful!"
Cons: "Horrible snacks on plane. Pretzels with ranch flavor. Yuck"
Pros: "Much better flight than the budget airlines, worth it. Seats didn't recline enough."
Cons: "I think that after first class they should load the plane from the last seat forward for ease of getting to the back seats"
Cons: "It was a small plane and there was no entertainment"
Pros: "Seats were nice and crew was friendly"
Cons: "It wasn't their fault but we did have to land at a different airport due to weather, but it showed that the crew took safety first"
Pros: "Fast getting my seat assignment. The guy at the gate counter was nice and courteous."
Cons: "TSA line was ridiculously long. Only one checkpoint open for the entire terminal."
