Check in agent in Budapest was terribly rude and sent us off to the side to "go call united" because "there was something wrong with our ticket." He wouldn't explain what was wrong so we didn't know what to tell United. After standing in a corner for more than 30 mins, another agent offered to help us. It turns out the only problem was that we hadn't completed our check in online, (which we couldn't because the app would not let us input the correct expiration date for our passports) ...and he just didn't want to have to put our information in himself. We could have missed our flight because of his laziness!!! He was also the only person in the whole airport NOT wearing a mask.
Pros: "I didn’t even catch this flight - the connection time was impossible causing unnecessary stress!!! Just don’t sell this ticket which such a tight connection."
Cons: "Don’t sell an unrealistic connection time"
Pros: "TV series “The Name of the Rose” that I really wanted to watch for some time"
Cons: "Water, water, water... I almost died from dehydration"
Cons: "Lufthansa disappointed. Seats were incredibly narrow and in both the airports and in the planes, the ability to charge your phone was poor."
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Cons: "Both outbound and inbound flights had defective/nonfunctional entertainment screens at our seats."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The airplane arrived over 45 minutes late."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
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."
Pros: "Lufthansa take great care of their passengers, always"
Cons: "Poor gliding in and rough landing"
Cons: "Cramped, old plane with no entertainment system."
Pros: "Clean and comfortable. Good and friendly service."
Cons: "Nothing not to like"
Cons: "I arranged assistance but nobody showed up."
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: "Good crew and plane"
Cons: "Terrible bag check before security, very long and disorganized"
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing, as well as the first meal....restaurant quality."
Pros: "Speed of boarding and de-planing."
Pros: "Welcoming from the crew"
Cons: "Take off was very scared"
Pros: "I like everything about Lufthansa in terms of quality and service"
Cons: "Punctuality. I fly lufthansa twice a week and I have yet to fly on time. There are always a delay."
Cons: "you cancled my return ticket when I got off the plane in Frankfurt and did not contiue to Geneva.."
Pros: "Some of the food was hot Good movie selection Peesonal entertainment screen"
Cons: "Some food was not hot No extra breat was offered No air conditioning for most of the flight, ...disaster No earphones for the first hour and the last 30 min"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good legroom."
Cons: "Slight delay."
Pros: "Comfortable plane, food good, flight attendants professional. No complaints"

Cons: "There was a 3 hour delay."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "Both parts of flight was superb n/a"
Cons: "Had difficulty walking up and down stairs to plane."
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Cons: "This is a brand new airplane. The size of these seats has hit a new low. To expect an adult to spend 8 hours crammed into this thing is barbaric. It's been a week and my back still right. Enough already."
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: "It was trouble free - check in was quick and efficient in Budapest, boarding was no trouble, and transfer in Frankfurt problem-free. Cabin crew were good, flight was nice."
Pros: "Flights themselves were ok with friendly crew."
Cons: "Only two passport gates for non EU passengers at Frankfurt. Four employees at EU gates sat there and laughed at the angry crowd. Lufthansa should have anticipated this mass of people and had appropriate passport checkers there from that company. "Not our fault" does not cut it. Two planes 600 people each landed at same time. I'd guess a quarter missed connection. The process of rescheduling was a comedy of lies and inefficiency and lack of concern. Worst air travel experience ever. Ruined first two days of my vacation. Oh yea forgot the worst. No air conditioner running on runway at Houston at three in afternoon. Passengers visibly sweating before a nine out overseas flight. Blamed it on a mistake."
Pros: "Flight was on time. They served a light snack in spite of being a very short flight."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Cons: "Regular economy felt a little cramped."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed. We had to hustle in Munich to make our connecting flight (so we thought) to IAD. It turned out the flight to IAD was also somewhat late so in the end all was well but we had less than an hour to make the connection and it was a bit fraught."
Pros: "I was upgraded to economy plus"
Cons: "The flight was delayed from Frankfurt"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, drinks including digestive, toilets situated downstairs"
Cons: "Boarding could have been done in sections, not all at once. Entertainment needs to be refreshed more often"
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Friendly, polite, very helpful staff; comfortable ride"
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Full plane"
Pros: "The pilots were very good as always"
Cons: "1 there was a baby screaming for about 5 hours next to me and the crew didn't do anything to help calm him down. I couldn't sleep or watch tv, neither my neighbors. Food: they served food without any drinks. I had to wait starting eating for another 10 min when they served water. Entertainment: there is no Russian language as an option."
Pros: "Ground Staff helpful. Cockpit pilots communicated effectively. Most of the cabin staff was courteous."
Cons: "The wait prior to takeoff was a concern. Flight departed one hour late. Scanner at Gate Z13 was malfunctioning. One steward from Frankfurt to Dallas was pre-judging my food choice based on how I look. Normally that would not bother me, but he kept asking if I had ordered a Vegetarian or Hindu meal several times even after I confirmed that I had requested the standard meals for all my journey. The same steward on the Dallas to Frankfurt demonstrated the same questionable behavior. Infants on the flight get very noisy and Lufthansa Staff can help by asking accompanying parents to be prepared prior to take off and landing with warm milk in the baby milk bottles which the children can ingest to equalize ear drum pressure. Unfortunately cabin crew is not using this simple technique and the children on board cry excessively with lot of pain making everyone around them very uncomfortable. This can be nerve wracking for all accompanying Lufthansa passengers near bulkhead rows. Frankfurt Main is too dependent on bus transportation causing passengers to get wet on days when rain occurs."
Pros: "Don't like anything"
Cons: "Bad food delivery crew members always restless mood"
Cons: "It was my bad luck to be near two children whose parents would not keep them quiet and who played games on their screen for nine hours straight, shrieking the entire time. Nor did any of the stewards help or say boo to the parents."
Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Start the flight either during the day or evening and not at 3:00 am in the morning. It disrupts the whole night sleeping schedule. I know Indians will take anything but Lufthansa can make a good start on these timings."
