Pros: "Same as above on SIN-BKK"

Cons: "Barely enough legspace. Some seats recline more than others, if you're sitting behind one of those you're out of luck."
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."

Pros: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight crew was extra nice, even accommodating requests that gave them extra-work. Economy passengers were treated like first class in terms of service and solicitude of the crew. Headphones, blankets, pillows were offered free of charge, so we’re the food and drinks, and there was a good selection of movies and music. On a 770$ ticket, mind you! The crew will come by repeatedly to check if passengers desired some more wine or coffee, offered water and juices on a tray several times outside the regular service times, and cared for the families with children. Thumbs up!"
Cons: "The warm food was a bit unappetizing, the potatoes for instance were black, but there is nothing that the crew could do better than offer to replace it. Such graceful approach to a little inconvenience!"

Pros: "The service was outstanding!"

Cons: "I guess I can’t properly rate the flight because it was canceled and I ended up flying United. I will say that that flight was fine. I was disappointed that there were zero notifications telling me that my initial flight with Lufthansa was canceled. When I finally got through over the phone, I was booked for a flight that I couldn’t make and had to wait until the next day to start my trip."
Cons: "How Lufthansa is not ashamed to serve dog food to people who order kosher food."
Pros: "Friendly crew, nice food and wine."
Cons: "HEAVY PASTA DISH."
Pros: "food and service"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Short flight, not much to say about it."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, respknisbe and professional, while the food was tasty. We were on time and kept well informed along the way. The movie selection was good and the touch screens were some of the best in terms of image quality and responsiveness I've seen aboard a plane."
Cons: "Space and comfort. Lufthansa is joining too many airlines in figuring out the exact minimal space a human needs to be able to be seems hurtling through the air. This leads to cramped, tight spaces with little to no freedom to shift your body. Because of this limited space, seats can only recline so far and leave one uncomfortable, though that angle is enough to create even less space for the person behind you or for you, when faced with a reclining front neighbor. So, minimal benefit of minimal recline and maximum discomfort caused for that minimal gain."
Cons: "Will newer agan fly business with Lufthansa!! It's not business at all just regular econom seats with short leg room and casual service. They should be sorry for that kind of business!!"
Pros: "Great food! Attentive staff, comfy seats."

Pros: "Standard Lufthansa short haul, Crew attentive"
Cons: "arrived off stand"
Cons: "The business class is not really a business class, and the chairs are not comfortable. Moreover, there was no entertainment. During the boarding there was no distinction between Business and Economy class. There should be an opportunity for business class to board at any time."
Pros: "Cabin is not very private feeling, plus you have to climb over people. Maybe slightly better than Air France's offering on the A380. Service and food was good."
Cons: "At time confusion amongst the crew- received wilted salad- seemed the last rows had to take what was left over"
Cons: "The only coffe served entire flight was offered simultaneously with the first meal, meaning i never had another opportunity. Beverage containers were never picked up and no secondary food or beverage service offered over a seven hour flight. This flights service was substandard in every way that my flght from Bosron to Frankfurt excelled -- very disappointing"
Pros: "Lufthansa rocks!"
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"

Listening covid restrictions and following them is completely nonsense. Avoid touching others? How when plane is full and everybody who pass around touchs me. Keep distance?? How???? Avoid walking in the plane but also wash your hands regularly with soap and water? How? I should avoid walking but at the same time you want me to wash hand regularly? It means i have to walk up and down. What is regularly for you? Every 15mins? Every hour? Every day? It is so stupid what you are telling that my brain stops to work.

Cons: "Staff needs to be briefed on what an insulin pump is."
Pros: "Again excellent service"
Pros: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Cons: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"

Pros: "Good crew, service."
Cons: "I chose a seat with no one in my row (because I knew the flight would not be full) and yet somehow two others got assigned to my row after. There was no need to cram us all into one row when the whole plane was empty!"
Pros: "New plane fantastic cabin"
Cons: "There was a fight but nothibg to do with the flight crew just some passenger with mental issues"
Cons: "They didn’t announce when boarding started/what zones were to go."
Cons: "The whole thing was a disaster. I lost my connection flight due to incompetence from the Ethiopian airlines representative"
Pros: "This was an A-350 and the plane was very nice. Better entertainment system than the 777. The flight was smooth and the food was good."

Pros: "The food served is awesome and sufficient. The flights are comfortable and the crew are friendly. My luggage came right on time and was properly handled"
Cons: "Well there was no entertainment in the flight. That is it"

Cons: "I can’t fault anything on this flight."
Pros: "Plane size, entertainment options and food were all great."
Cons: "The person next to me was rude and leaning over on my side but not much the airline can do about that."
Pros: "That I finally had an on time flight with Ethiopian airlines, having suffered through an absolutely miserable outbound flight"
Cons: "On connecting from Bangkok to Nairobi passengers are funneled into a security waiting area with no water, coffee, duty free shopping- absolutely nothing but dirty toilets- for a 2+ hour layover. Bole airport is surely one of the most disfunctional airports on the planet."

Pros: "Great crew, decent food"
Pros: "Other than the luggage issue, it was a great flight."
Cons: "I purchased this ticket as ONE ticket--Ethiopian Air to Dubai, and then flydubai to Amman. Ethiopian Air wouldn't check my luggage to my final destination, so in Dubai, for a 3 hour layover, I had to go through immigration, exchange money, and take a taxi for 30 minutes through rush-hour traffic to a different terminal. That is ridiculous. Don't sell it as one ticket if the two airlines won't cooperate together."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"
Cons: "Seats were dirty"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew very kind and made me feel comfortable"
Cons: "Old 767, with not comfortable set up and no individual TV set."
Cons: "The waiting time for the connecting flight to was far too long...."
Pros: "The seats were OK but not as good as in the larger airplanes. Vegetarian option for food was good. Airplane was half empty which made moving around quite easy and nice. Flight attendents were willing to help!"
Cons: "Independence day is perhaps not the best movie for a flight. Only one option as there are no personal media systems."
Pros: "The best flight ever and the crew is super cool"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "One segment of my flight did not have the gluten free meal I had requested ahead of time. Super crowded."
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "There were tons of announcements in 3 or 4 languages which really was so annoying. Staff didn't seem friendly, lots of confusion there. Plane seemed every old and run down. Short stop in Paris took forever."
Pros: "Nothing. My bag is gone"
Cons: "My bag is gone"
Pros: "It was a good flight, made only a little disappointing by all the children running through the plane, opening the washroom doors and leaving them open. A little strange, really."
