Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Didn’t like anything. Mediocre all round."

Cons: "The food could have been better! Also, the entertainment options could have been more current."
Cons: "Only reason I chose Lufthansa was that I was informed that 23kg of checked in luggage was included. It was NOT. I don't care whose fault it is. Lufthansa still says that this is included on their website. I demand reimbursement."
Pros: "The plane looked new and clean. The TVs worked well (as opposed to our first flight) and kept our family entertained. The kids meal was prepared in an appealing way for my kids (even though the kids didn't like it some of it - but they tried everything!)."
Cons: "We had a great experience. No issues."
Pros: "The crew performed their duties in a professional manner."

Cons: "Very poor connecting flight information for check in. United connecting flight through Lufthansa has no information. Have to ask around airport and nobody seems to know exactly when United will open for checkin. Discover next morning it is only 2 hrs before flight, 1.5 hrs before boarding. Lufthansa made no effort to pass along their connecting flight information, they just drop all responsibility and say it is a United flight so offer no help. First and last time with Lufthansa."

Cons: "Flight out was late due to the bus being late picking up the crew. We had to run for our connections. On the way back we were delayed again , leaving 20 minutes to make our connection. Security at Frankfurt was so poor. Of the potential number of lines available, there were only two operating despite the number of passengers, most of whom were late for their connections. It took us over 30 minutes to get through. Luckily the connecting flight was delayed over an hour."
Pros: "I boarded despite being very late from connection"
Cons: "Very stressful to make the late connection. Lost bags due to short connection expected but not well enabled. No communication until I initiated call following day despite submitting lost baggage form. Seats are too close together - when reclined in front I could not use my laptop as not enough space to open my screen. Was able to move to a different seat to ok."
Pros: "Monitor in front of me did not work during the whole flight."

Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "We had a very kind crew! We traveled with an infant and while boarding was a mess, the crew on board was kind and helpful and did all they could to make it a good experience."
Cons: "Air Canada Rouge operated our flight rather than Lufthansa or other similar airline. This meant that there were no tvs on board, which means the nearly 9 hour flight got very long. Boarding and check-in were also disorganized and many people from lower zones boarded before zone 1 and those with children, m among we had to stand on the ramp for a very long time holding ort baby."
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: "huge plane, no space. painful."
Pros: "Staff was very professional, the plain was new and clean. Food and drinks were also good."
Cons: "First leg of our flight was delayed, second flight departed before we landed."

Cons: "We didn't like the total confusion and errors made by Lufthansa staff during the rebooking process after the flight cancellation."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Food was very good, super nice crew. Good selection of movies. Boarding was great, we are seniors, we didn't ask for assistance beforehand, but the person at the gate called us over and had us board early. Much appreciated!"
Cons: "Seats were just too cramped. We chose seats and paid extra to do that, but the seating charts really didn't give a very good idea of what to expect or how to choose. Announcements were to difficult to understand. Also in the gate area, I couldn't understand names at all. Need to slow down and speak more clearly."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled due to pilot strike."
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: "Just much more professional than US carriers... Also much more leg room in economy class then most US carriers"
Pros: "Lufthanza is very bad with customer service. They have a NO COMMUNICATION POLICY. Tell the customer nothing. Leave them in the dark."
