Over all poor

Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Everything from check in to offloading went smoothly. Pretty good food and accommodating flight staff."
Cons: "My row had 3 seats behing a row of 4. We were weirdly offset so I had to look to the right to see my TV. Super uncomfortable. Dont like TV much anyway. Gave up on it real quick"
Pros: "Aircraft and crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Great crew! Excellent customer service with a smile!"
Cons: "Not sure how, but the food could be a bit better."
Pros: "Cheerful and very helpful"
Cons: "The food could be better"
Pros: "for the first time ever, my kid ate the airplane food, and it was because it was good. the service was really good and the staff outstanding."
Cons: "Te cabin pressure gave us headache. always happens with the A380 though."
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: "Boarding from Nairobi was ridiculous. The plan was extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "The plane was too warm. It was a full flight and you need more air circulation. The movies were old and you need more current ones. For a snack we were offered a cookie or some sort of sandwich, there were chocolates and fruit on the tray but they weren’t offered."
Cons: "Water only and.. I had to asked for it. No snacks or other drinks in my eighteenth hour of flying back from Poland :(("
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: "Fantastic staff excellent aircraft"
Cons: "5 hour lay over in Frankfurt. Sandwiches are all the same 2 choices on all aircraft"
Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding. Flight attendants were very good. On time arrival."
Pros: "good flight."
Cons: "Ran a timy bit late but staff was all very nice."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "The crew did a great job. The flight turned out to be nearly 10 hours since we had 150 knot headwinds. The food and free wine made things much to tolerable. You can't go wrong with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Pleasant flight all around."
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Boarding delayed, awkward & slow. Employees rude and bossy. Crew on board not pleasant or helpful. Food disgusting. Noticed same dramatic difference in passenger treatment between SFO and Frankfurt legs of the flight. They treat the mostly Indian customers differently. I go to India every year. It was same last year. My suitcase broken in transit. Reported. No call back after several days. I’m US citizen of German ancestry. I feel badly about lack of service for India bound passengers."
Pros: "The plane was nearly empty, so there was a lot of space to spread out. The entertainment options were almost limitless and the food was plentiful and tasty."
Cons: "Since it was an overnight flight, I planned on sleeping, however, it seemed the flight attendants were coming through all the time. While I appreciated dinner and breakfast, it really wasn't necessary for that time of day and the length of flight. I also tried to upgrade and even though the premium economy clear was almost empty, they did not accept my bid. I would have understood if the flight was full but it wasn't. I'm not sure why they wouldn't want the extra money from me?"
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "On time and professional boarding. Comfortable flight and friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Nothing to say."
Cons: "entertainment was not working! the flight to Frankfurt was late and I missed the connection to rome! crew told me to run for the connection but ad the gate they told me they had already put me on a later flight! no need to run like crazy across the airport if they had me already booked me on a later flight! missed my train connection in rome to bari...asked the airport lufthansa rep. to put me on a flight to bari but they told me they couldn't do it although there was a flight available!"
Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "They ran out of food- I didn’t have dinner on that flight. We were almost 2 hours late to Dubai. I was irritated to say the least."
Cons: "Late one hour. Apparently equipment failure"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service"
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?"
Cons: "Seats on airplane from Frankfort to Cairo"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal choice not offered"
Pros: "Food was good Flight was smooth Pilot described flight path"
Cons: "Schedule not ideal - left Munich at 9:45pm arrived Tbilisi 3:30am"
Pros: "they were on-time and we got from IAD to FRA in one piece."
Cons: "you had to pay $35 ahead of time just to select your seats...they only allow 1 checked bag, half the flight was empty in eco plus but they still wanted you to pay to "upgrade", integration with UAL is cumbersome and difficult as you cant manage both legs of a UAL/LH flight from one carrier. Overall mediocre but hey - Cheap fares, you get what you pay for."
Pros: "As always, Lufthansa provides a great flight experience. Attentive crew, clean seats, and good leg room. Will fly Lufthansa again and again."
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as last year. Not bad, just not as good."
Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff."
Cons: "Little space. No wifi. The food was from a Russian vendor, which is good, except the bread rolls where puffy and from the freezer. I don't think it was butter, more like margarine."
Cons: "Ridiing buses on tarmac to get to the plane."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "the woman who helped me at the boarding gate was great! Lounge was really nice!"
Pros: "Lunch was good."
Cons: "Flight delay for over an hour with United"
Cons: "The boarding was very disorganized."
Cons: "The seats recline too much! The passenger in front of me almost immediately reclined her chair right into my face, making an irritable experience on a long flight for me. That is the only flaw in your service in my experience."
Cons: "It was a really rainy day and we all had to get on shuttles to get to our plane. Once we reached the plane, the crew should have facilitated an orderly boarding through both doors rather than one. This was also a pretty empty flight and other passengers were utilizing their assigned seat as well as a whole other row and calling it theirs just because they set something on one seat. It didn't seem right that some of us had to stay in our little crowded area while others used up 4 seats and I don't mean for laying down."
Pros: "Last year I flew Air France. Lufthansa is far superior!"
Pros: "on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "boarding, after preferred members and those needing help, was all one. that's a lot of people. ended up being fine since there was plenty of time, but sometimes, people in the aisles slow the process down. might be better to put the people at the back of the flight on first."
Pros: "we had to cut our trip short and book an immediate flight home on Lufthansa. The staff took excellent care of us. Even offered us some orange juice and milk to take home knowing that we may need it (being away for a while) and knowing that our first priority was to get to a hospital. These little events shows the extreme compassion from Lufthansa's on-board staff. We will now ALWAYS look to fly Lufthansa whenever possible."
Cons: "Boarding was in organizes."
Cons: "Ground crew in Warsaw made me feel unwelcome. The harassment and discrimination I have experienced was unacceptable."
Pros: "Cleanliness. Crew members were up and doing. Very efficient."
Cons: "Food needs an upgrade."
Pros: "terrible earphone, could listen only on one ear."
