Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food quality, crew attitude, seats and entertainment ."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The seating was ok but dirty floors"
Pros: "The flight was fine, but there was not enough time to transfer between the gates in Frankfurt. That also did not give us enough time for our luggage to transfer."
Cons: "Longer transfer between flights in Frankfurt"
Pros: "Seats were spacious and they fed us on the flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment."
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: "If Lufthansa had not lost my luggage."
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly, the lack of customer service is evident."
Cons: "It was a horrible experience. I was trying to check in a few hours before my flight, and my reservation just vanished. I was on the phone with VAYAMA twice, and both times they were extremely unhelpful and one of the times just very very rude! I will not be booking with Kayak again."
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: "This was my first experience flying with Lufthansa airlines and the experience was outstanding from start to finish! This is what flying should be like! Other airlines should do what they do!"
Pros: "service, on time,efficient boarding, no hassles"
Pros: "Flight on time. When you are able to get a hold of flight attendants, they do take note of your requests."
Cons: "Entertainment kept freezing up and needed reboot. Crew didn’t answer to the call-for-attendant signal"
Pros: "Food was great; I appreciate the frequent water/juice service."
Cons: "boarding was late and slow, arrival at Frankfurt late"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "It was great experience with them"
Pros: "The flight was very good"
Pros: "Randomly gave me better seats!"

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Luthansa flight was very good. On time, and best quality"
Pros: "The service was excellent along with the flight being very comfortable."
Cons: "A little more options in entertainment in the hindi language would be much better for people who do not like to watch English entertainment. Along with that free wifi would be kind of good to have for people who need to work on the flight or check out important emails."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "My flight from Budapest took off hour later then scheduled. We landed in Munich only ten minutes before the international flight's take off to San Francisco. Upon the Munich landing, eight of us were escorted on a special bus, with a special pass controll and on special routs to make sure we get on the plane on time. Our laggage managed to get on the same plane as well. Thank you Lufthansa!"
Cons: "Food was completely tasteless - of very questionable quality"
Pros: "I loved everything about the Lufthansa Flight. Clean plane enough room. GREAT Service!!"
Cons: "-"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
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: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines (both of which I traveled on as part of this trip)."
Cons: "I would highly recommend both Lufthansa and Austrian adjust their entertainment systems. They seem not to weight much the top films with, say 75% Rotten Tomatoes reviews or higher. Even if there were fewer options for cost reasons, I would think they'd still have more watcher enjoyment. Rather than pad the list with the likes of Boss Baby or Going out in Style or even a mediocre 60% offering in the Fast and Furious franchise. Wonderful crew, though, can't say enough about how polite and attentive they are."
Cons: "Charges for suitcase 40 euros this rediculas"
Pros: "Staff was nice. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The touchscreen tv seevice was the slowest I have ever seen. The entertainment options were very limited, even less optikns for kids. The back of my chair was not reclining. The food was terrible. Kids did not eat anything at all."
Pros: "Very friendly and efficient crew. Good food and entertainment. On schedule."
Pros: "Great crew. Very comfortable flight, good food. On schedule"
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "can't think of anything"
Pros: "On time departure of flight"
Pros: "Perfect flight..."
Pros: "Had really less than an hour to pass through immigration and catch a connecting flight to Rome. In particular I thought my bag would not make the connection, and as I was going on to Perugia that evening and it would have been a big mess. At check-in for the Rome flight, the LH lady was able to confirm my bag was already aboard which put me at ease. It came through very quickly in Rome and I arrived in Perugia on time and with my bag! Food from Bogota was tasty and there was a complimentary snack on flight to Rome."
Pros: "Handling crew was great . Seat was comfortable!!! Meal was very good and tasty"
Cons: "The security in Frankfort was hard and unbelievable. Don't recommend to do connecting flight throw Frankfort and then continue to midel east."
Pros: "Great seats, with legroom and ample food."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Well organized and in time"
Cons: "Plane transfer and customs at Frankfort were the worst I have ever encountered. Had to go so far between the two gates that had the flight from Seattle not been 30 minutes early and the plane to Barcelona posted as 10 minutes later than originally stated, we would have missed the connecting flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very friendly. Everything went perfectly."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "unable to select seats at booking until 24 hours before and even then, was unable to do so for the US to Hamburg leg"
Cons: "My chair did not recline at all, which make long fly very uncomfortable. When I complained to fly attendant, she said that there is nothing she can do about it. The table in front of the chair was also very hard to open."
Pros: "Comfortable, new aircraft. Good on-board service."
Cons: "Lufthansa should allow seat selection in advance. Other competing carriers do, without a fee (including Brussels Air), and it detracts from the experience to have this uncertainty."
Pros: "Friendly, professional crew!"
