Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "amazing and great customer service"
Pros: "Very polite and helpful crew. Nice selection of movies in-flight"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Cons: "The flight was delayed so we had to taxi over an hour on the runway at around 11pm. Would have been nice to have been served water or something while waiting"
Pros: "Crew was great, plane was nice"
Cons: "delayed again, almost missed connection"
Pros: "The person sitting next to me in the aisle seat moved so I had a window seat and free access to the aisle so I could use the bathroom when I wanted which let me stay hydrated on the plane. This was great. Crew was overall pretty responsive and helpful. Never a line for bathroom"
Cons: "Food was horrible on Lufthansa. Boarding was also horrible. They don't board by zones and it was very haphazard and unorganized."
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: "Food could have been better,there several seats empty ,but couldn't switch seat or food TV wasn't working at all"
Pros: "The crew on the jet were fine. The entertainment was good too."
Cons: "The crew at checkin we’re pretty awful. They were rude and not very helpful. I witnessed 3 customers have poor service in front of me and then they weren’t helpful with me either. The plane changed and I had paid for a seat and I lost my money and the seat I paid for and was never notified."
Pros: "Flight delayed 30 min. Customs in ORD overwhelmed by two planes coming at once. Missed my connection and had to stay overnight."
Cons: "Flight delayed 30 min. Customs in ORD overwhelmed by two planes coming at once. Missed my connection and had to stay overnight."
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: "Flight was very delayed in Munich"
Cons: "Flight was very delayed in Munich due to a shortage of land and handling crew. Very disappointing. Everyone I know who takes this flight complains about the same problem. Arrived in Geneva around 21:00, 1 1/2 hours later than anticipated time of arrival."
Pros: "As a United 1K member and Star Alliance Gold member, I expected a little better treatment than being charged a premium to sit with my family in a 'rock bottom' basic seat."
Cons: "I was surprised to have to pay more for a basic seat. I really thought I had paid enough already. I could not get boarding pass tickets for the last leg of our fight. I was told that Lufthansa''s system does not communicate with United Airline System. I found this to be untrue because I have had code share flights between United and Luftansa for 20 years. At Munich I was told that they could not get me tickets either and said that there may be a security issue with me. Once I heard this I walked away."
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit unorganized"
Pros: "I like everything about this airline. The entire crew is always happy to serve and extremely helpful. The food is very good and served hot. When our flight was delayed and it was questionable whether we'd make our Lufthansa connection, there was a small bus with 2 Lufthansa crew members waiting for us on the ground - they escorted us through Customs and directly to the door of the airplane so that we'd make the flight. Service I have never gotten on an American airline!"
Cons: "Because the one came in from London Got Delay And I miss my flight"
Pros: "Great flight crew, inflight entertainment and food"
Cons: "Damaged bag...working with airline to get replacement"
Pros: "The flight was fine. However, because of a potential snow storm in Boston for 3/21, the flight with Lufthansa was cancelled. We were switched to TAP Portugal for the 22nd. When we arrived at Logan airport, we were told by TAP the flight is overbooked, but there is a chance we will get seats. We did get seats at the last moment, always kept abreast by TAP representatives. The flight was a non-stop flight, leaving at 6 PM arriving by 6 AM, far better than the connections with changes the day before."
Pros: "Lufthansa has it all together and knows how to fly. I recommend to everyone!"
Cons: "I didn’t like it because when I asked for a big water bottle, they refused to gove it to me while I am sick and suffer dry throat. The space is rather small. If you are 5ft 5 and above person, I honestly would suggest you buy extra legroom for comfortable purposes. Also, there is like 1 restroom on the whole plane and if you sot at the end, you are screw. Lets not forget that they delayed our flights like 4 hours and only gave us 1 voucher for snack. I don’t expect the experience will be fancy but this is a total disappointment!"
Cons: "First, Lufthansa lost our baggage from Hamburg to Los Angeles. Then, the delivery company (Direct Courier Services) Lufthansa uses was completely inept and unprofessional - every single one of their employees is a complete moron. We didn't end up getting our baggage for two and half days so we were wearing the same clothes that we left Germany with. Then, after being told by Lufthansa customer service to submit receipts for clothes we had to buy, never got reimbursed or even the courtesy of a reply. After flying Lufthansa for over a decade, will never use this airline again. Epic fail."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Cons: "The gate was moved three times."
Pros: "Exelent crew"
Cons: "Long distance between gates to transfer"
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
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: "Flew business class. Service and food were excellent!"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "I have never flown with Lufthansa, but now, I will fly with them any chance I get. The crew were amazing. Friendly and attentive. For airplane food, it was very good and tasty. Received headphones, a pillow and a blanket for the flight. Legroom was good, but probably cramped for people over 6'0" tall. 24 hour online check-in was smooth an trouble free. I like having the boarding pass on my phone. No paper to carry around."
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: "Same as above"
Cons: "More movie choices. The food choices this time we're not as good."
Cons: "I made seat reservation in the internet and the LH agent change it"
Pros: "The crew was nice and they took good care of us. The flight is really short and there isn't much time for anything."
Cons: "The seats are becoming smaller and smaller, and more uncomfortable."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
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: "Entertainment food and friendly crew! Alles gut!!!"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "This part of the journey was excellent."
Cons: "The very long commute from one terminal to another terminal."
Pros: "On time departures/ arrivals.. great friendly and professional cabin crew"
Cons: "Seated near and next to me were about 9 German men who had begun their vacation to Colorado in the airport bar prior to the flight. I was seated in a middle seat "J" (I believe) in row 37 or 39. The men were receiving from the stewardesses repeatedly two glasses at a time and kept going back to the galley and getting two glasses of wine at a time Although they were loud, congregating in the aisle around rows 37 and 39 they were not limited in what they could drink. The two on either side of me were disrespectful of my personal space and were very inappropriate. I got up and went to the galley behind my seat to ask the stewardesses to get me another seat. During this time the guys kept coming back to this galley for more wine still taking two at a time. The stewardesses explained that the plane was full. Others complained also. I then asked the stewardesses if since they were over serving these guys, would they trade one of their jump seats with me. At this point they cut the guys off and got the pursar. She talked to them and ignored my personal safety concerns and said no one gets on a plane drunk (yeah, right) and that they would now behave and were asleep. That's why they are still talking at the top of their lungs and standing in the aisle? I asked. I wish I had video recorded this, I did not as others with kids in the aisles across from me did. I hope their videos go viral Not impressed with Lufthansa"
Pros: "the trip from osaka to frankfurt was excellente. the people of the crew woho serve us, were excellent. Thanks for karen kern and her colleague First time i drunk a nice wine."
Cons: "the trip from frankfurt to sao paulo wasn't so excellent. there was a difference. Unfortunatelly, lower."
Pros: "Food & Entertainment were OK"
Cons: "My seat was 32C , me being disabled (wheelchair). My wife seat was 32 A and was DEFECTIVE. It could not be lowered towards the back, actually it has only the fixed position (all the way up). The lady from the seat before my wife's (31A) was lowering her seat ALL THE WAY. my wife protested, the crew tried unsuccessfully to adjust my wife's seat. Finally, instead of considering my condition and relocating us to some other seats (there were several free on this flight), the crew's lead stewardess (Friederich ?- I could not read the label, she kept it under her jacket) decided to upgrade that couple seats by moving them into the Business Class."
Pros: "Courteous flight crew"
Pros: "Excellent plane overall. Was late on one connection but so were a lot of other airlines due to high winds."
Pros: "Great food and nice to be offered wine with dinner and after dinner drink"
Cons: "Could not have been more uncomfortable on this long flight. I am a normal size/weight person who practices yoga and if I was miserable, I can't imagine others who are larger or not in great shape. Those seats are like being in solitary confinement...but with 200 other people. Ugh."
Pros: "Short flight so it was good"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Being seated in econmony plus. Everything behind the scenes that i didn't see that made this flight safe. Very thankful. Didn't matter that not enough coffee was onboard for breakfast."
Cons: "The selection and range of music could be improved, or may be it is just my taste within the genres on offer."
Pros: "...and not for the first time.. And won't be the last.."
Cons: "Wifi onboard wasn't working.."
Cons: "It would have been nice to know if each meal contained cheese, as oposed to just general "chicken and rice" and "noodles with marinara and cheese" It turned ut the rice was in a cheese sauce, and i could not eat it, and could also not eat the alternate option. Please think about giving out a detailed list of ingredients for the in flight meals so we can make more informed choices when we have food restrictions!"
