Food/ entertainment N/A

The food is horrible. Even in business class

Liked: Video entertainment options were generally good (sufficient choice of good, recent films). Could Have Been Better: 1. Both the SFO-Frankfurt and Frankfurt-Milan flights were significantly delayed. 2. Dinner was ok, although included no choice other than pasta (no meat). Quality of breakfast seemed very below average (just an unpalatable, bread-heavy vegetarian sandwich that many passengers seemed to discard after only a bite or two) 3. Crew performed their duties perfunctorily, but seemed a little stiff/impersonal. 4. Space between seat and seatback of the passenger in front a bit cramped.

Transit in Munich airport was terrible, staff is rude! Sitting on row 53 was bad the food was not enough.

The seats are not comfortable for 4 hours flights!! but the leg room is OK .

LH419. Check for yourself

Perhaps boarding by groups would help a bit with the organization during boarding. There is a lack of space for overhead bags, and this caused some stress amongst the passengers.

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "More direction once crew knew the connecting flight would be lost, especially to minors"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Cons: "Seat very short & im only 5’2” and it was short even for my legs. Too short for anyone average Otherwise ok"
Pros: "Super easy boarding, just scan your ticket and go. Staff was very friendly. On our short flight from Munich to Rome we were served a complimentary sandwich and option of beer, wine or other refreshments. There was plenty of leg room compared to our other recent flights"
Cons: "There was no in flight entertainment. Not that was really needed it with such a short flight."
Pros: "Staff was helpful and kind. Entertainment had variety."
Cons: "Flight ran out of chicken meals fast, forcing the rest of the plane to have vegetarian instead. I was sat in 41G. Awkward seating arrangement. Worst seat ever! Super cramp, making a 9hr flight very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "Comfy flight and early arrival."
Cons: "Had to run to catch the connecting flight"
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight"
Cons: "Crew was not necessarily warm or curteous"
Cons: "Service was poor, lack of vegetarian food"
Pros: "I flew in the A380 bulkhead at row 50 from Munich to Hong Kong. Have flown premium economy with Lufthansa before, it was no different from before. The service is efficient. Entertainment was fine and had an interesting selection in their world cinema section."
Cons: "A pretty standard experience and nothing which makes you feel special. Other airlines might offer an upgraded meal in premium economy or a special cocktail, but not on Lufthansa."
Cons: "So bad"
Cons: "All flights cancelled. Stuck overnight."
Pros: "I had a great seat in premium economy. I would recommend upgrading to anyone. Friendly crew. Good entertainment options."
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "Huge selection of movies and entertainment. Good food, especially the fresh salad and vegetarian option for dinner. Good wine selection, the saving grace for what I consider an over sold flight. The service staff was attentive and professional. The pilot and crew were great, I felt very safe."
Cons: "Delays in both legs of my trip made connecting flight nerve wracking. Economy seating was horrible. Uncomfortable, too many people stuffed into claustrophobic conditions. The funk was pretty overwhelming. Bathrooms were stinky and ran out of toilet paper. Only the free flowing wine made it tolerable."
Pros: "The staff was friendly, the seats were comfortable, and the price was perfect."
Cons: "The breakfast was terrible and the dinner was barely better."
Cons: "Boarding from terminal F. Very far away located. Then transfer by bus to the main terminal 2. Two floor climbed by stairs. Then gate changed. Passengers who arrived later accessed directly through main terminal 2 to the gate. No entertainment on board at all. A321 plane is not comfortable. 15 min. delay no so bad."
Pros: "The crew was nice about everything. On being asked at the airport to at least change my seat on the second leg flight the personnel did it without a fuss."
Cons: "Tthe first leg was overbooked and they wouldn't let me select a seat and I had to weather through a middle seat that I was not at all comfortable with The entertainment collection can be better specially Indian/Hindi movies"
Pros: "Punctuality, rapid boarding, nice to still have free snacks (choice of sandwich and full range of drunks)"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "No turbulence, very nice Crew, flight was on time. Very smooth flight!"
Cons: "Cold on plane, could be more entertainment, but the flight having no turbulence and being less scary is more important to me. So I am very happy!"
Cons: "Movie selection was lacking, stewardess on one leg of the trip was hard to understand"
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Everything was fantastic! And that is hard to say about air travel theses days. I will definitely fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Got off to a late start, should have been an omen."
Pros: "Lufthansa makes coach travel tolerable. Blankets, pillows, free access to on board entertainment and a large selection of real food, not just snacks, and beverages. All beverages available the entire flight. Plane was clean and everything in working order."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "The flight was canceled!!!!!!!! It was late night and the was. I explanation given to cancellation !!!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service excellent, very friendly crew, and great selection of movies."
Cons: "I typically enjoy Frankfurt airport but perhaps because of a construction, not this time. There was endless walking to get to the gate for the connecting flight that wasn't supposed to be all that far. After about 20-25 walk, we finally arrived to .... the train station that took us to the next terminal. Really? It takes 20-25 to just get to the train when walking straight without the train shouldn't be taking any longer? In addition, our (checked-in) car seats were not transferred and never made it to our final destination, so we had nothing to put the kids in for the ride from the final airport."
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."
Pros: "Timing, entertainment options."
Cons: "Unability to check in with 2nd passport instead of visa. Also, No sits selection available if you have 2 passports to travel. Baggage was lost."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "The crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "We waited over an hour for two people to board the plane. After we waited, the couple didn't make it past security; so, we had to wait another 20 minutes for the company to take their luggage off of the plane. I was late checking into my hotel, which was in the process of being canceled."
Cons: "seats are too narrow"
Pros: "The service during the flight was pretty good"
Cons: "My luggage is lost and I didn't receive them yet."
Pros: "Despite the wintry weather, a safe take off and a nice flight. A plus to Otopeni (Bucharest) airport administration - clean runaway, no snow no ice on it."
Cons: "Delay time should be posted accordingly at the gate."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "I feel that the there should be NO reclining of seats in the economy section. There is about 10-12 inches of space between my face and the seat back if the seat in front is not reclined. If it is reclined , this distance is reduced to 6-8 inches. Too, too close. And reclining does not add much to the comfort of the sitting position. When the person in front of me reclines, then I am almost forced to recline so I have enough room."
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: "Excellent accomadations"
Pros: "Pre-bording with children and nice entertainment selection of movies, tv shows and music."
Cons: "rhe FA was saying that they have either pasta or chicken and they had beef, when asked what kind of pasta he said how would I know."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"

PlusPoints are useless if seats are so rarely available.

Apart from the delays in terms of departure times, the airline experience was so bad, given the medical incident from a passenger sitting at the back of the plane. I was so close to it, and was utterly disappointed by the failure of the cabin crew to control passengers from overcrowding the sick passenger and allow the crew to administer the necessary medical intervention. It all amounted to compromised safety at 30000 feet, and seriously more training on the part of the airline is required in this regard. The other issue I realised is lack of cleanliness and care on the part of cabin staff, with one lady spilling food next to where I was sitting and ignoring the incident completely. I had to ask another to intervene and for which only superficial help was rendered. This is not what I expected, but this is what I got and speaks volumes to a cabin crew which is all female, mature/elderly, and expected to be more hands on to problems of this nature. The food is terrible in economy class, with options very limited. I opted for chicken, but did not know that it had curry in it, so I could not eat my meal further, and so no need to ask for the vegetarian option.

The check in process was kind of slow considering that I had already checked in and just needed to drop off my bag. Everything else was great! I love flying with the Japanese. Their customer service is always astounding.

Be on time

Pros: "The crew was excellent; courteous and professional."
Cons: "More room for overhead bags so checking carry-on isn’t necessary"
Cons: "outlets for each seat, more space, timely manner,"
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, courteous, and generally concerned with our well-being."
Cons: "Economy seats were not terribly comfortable, but that is not unusual."
Pros: "The pilot and flight crew were outstanding.... I’ve never had a smoother flight ... I told them as I was existing the plane"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "A five hour flight and you only get a mini pack of mini pretzels and a soda. The boarding was made an hour late, the United employees didn’t seem to care that a line formed ine hour before. Two people near me were blasting their smartphones listening to music and/or playing games with their smartphones but without earphones and not one person from the crew told them to shut it up."
Cons: "only pretzel, no nuts as option"
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: "Staff felt embarrassed for what they were being asked to do"
Cons: "A United supervisor at the Leon terminal informed me that my 'smart' luggage was not allowed. I have traveled with it all over the world for the past 2 years, including to Leon in a United flight 2 days prior. I have also disabled the battery with a clearly marked OFF switch inside and never actually use it. However the memo I was shown was unambiguous and logic was not an option. So I asked for a screwdriver to remove the battery, The supervisor said no and proceed to treat me as a criminal. After one of the staff lent me tools and I removed the battery the supervisor asked for my name but off we went to board our flight. Before boarding however, my wife and I were called in for a 'random' security inspection. The experience was very unpleasant. It was discrimination and retaliation by someone abusing their authority. Very dissapointed on the United staff and their customer service."
Pros: "Excellent service by the flight staff"
Cons: "It was cold on the plane at times"
Pros: "The food was very good."
Cons: "We were forced to check a carry on. Then it got lost."
Pros: "Nothing my worst flight ever False advertising, No Enternet No movies"
Cons: "The staff on board not nice Pilot with no experience try to land the plane with no success 2 time"
Pros: "Didn't die..."
Cons: "Flight delayed, otherwise the seats were the same as all other planes I've been on. Not sure how you differientiate a consistiently bad experience between the 5 or 6 airlines that are left. Our expectations are now so low that if an airline Employee smiles at us we give their employer 5 stars. We should probably find a better way to rate the cable companies and airlines in our lives."
Cons: "Ok"
Cons: "Everything good"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Nearly 2 hour delay and stuck on plane waiting. Wifi problems and movies wouldn't stream."

Cons: "There was nothing wrong with the flight, I wish that all of my trip went as well as this flight."

Pros: "Made it to Denver."
Cons: "Agents were not communicative with boarding passengers. Flight was delayed substantially."
Pros: "Flight was quick, efficient and courteous flight attendants."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Overall the flights were trouble free. The seats on the CRJ145 to Chicago were pretty confortable. United is the only airline that gives passengers a complete can of coke instead of just a cup. The snack was just so so."
Cons: "The seats on the plane from Chicago to Tucson were not comfortable. I could feel the hard bottom."
Cons: "Fll united club"
Pros: "First of all the captain let us board early and get settled, the flight attendants were very friendly and the take off and landing were smooth, it was a great flight the seats were comfortable and the trip was short."
Pros: "The crew is really nice. They are considerate and helpful as if they know you will be bored through out the flight."
Cons: "You get no food. One advise for the company, do not serve alcohol on 6 AM flights. Just serve some eggs or bread. Try to compete with international airlines like emirates and not greyhound buses. The entertainment system requires you to download the app on your phone and you need to buy the internet."
Pros: "Nice people."
Cons: "No entertainment. The snacks tasted old and I wasn't even sure what some of the things in the mix were. The flight seemed really long."
Cons: "I payed for my flight about a month prior and for some reason still did not have a guaranteed seat on the flight and almost got left behind"
Pros: "I like how courteous the attendants were."
Cons: "We had many delays with the system down. We ended up in lines at the airport for nearly 3 hours. Also, it would have been nice to be given food for that long of a flight."

Pros: "The crew is kind"
Cons: "UA flights always get delayed and this time I failed to catch my connecting flight to London. I was rescheduled to the flight in the morning of the second day. And when we were heading for London half way, the pilot said some sensors stopped working and we had to come back to Dulles. To be honest, I will never take UA flights anymore, it is just TERRIBLE!"
Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "Ground staff was racist. Standards vary depending the color."
Pros: "Never again with KAYAK. Sorry."
Cons: "The seats are so narrow in coach that the man with broad shoulders that sat next to me could not help being in my seat. I needed to be able to sleep, since it was an overnight flight. This was not possible."
Cons: "The flight left early cause the storm and I had to spend the night at the airport."
Pros: "It flew."
Pros: "We appreciated the upgrade to first class. Perfect for our vacation"
Cons: "Not much, my husband had to check his carry on bag due to a full flight. But we weren't that upset about it."
Pros: "It went great. The service was excellent!"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed for four hours. However, an attendant at the United Airlines counter was kind enough to go ahead and book us for a later flight out of Houston so we would make it home without much of a delay. Overall everyone was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Many alerts in my e-mail."
Pros: "He's a great pilot."
