Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the plane was clean and well-presented."
Cons: "The flight left with a slight delay. As I boarded, I was issued a new seat in the middle, as opposed to the window seat I had selected. There was zero explanation for this change. When I approached the flight attendants about it, with a smile on my end, I was offered the equivalent of a shrug. As I gave up, I was also informed there was no more room in the overhead bins, so not only did I end up sitting in the middle (which I loathe), but also with my carry-on under my feet. I’ve always been a fan of Lufthansa, but I’m a little disappointed this time around."
Cons: "Crew was nice, but big push to check-in carry-on. There was in fact plenty of room in overhead bin"
Cons: "the flight info was off"
Pros: "Boarding areas are very comfortable and spaceous. The personnel are professiona and friendly. All flights were on time. Online check in was easy and relaxing which made for a quick check in at the München Airport."
Cons: "between lunch and supper snack one isle had only one water serving and my isle had none. So for 6 hours we had no water serving. This is why I gave crew rating OK only. Also the supper pizza snack was horrible. By comparison, United gives full drink cans so they last longer. I suggest Lufthansa also should serve full drink cans in long flights."
Pros: "it was quite comfortable"
Cons: "luggage got delayed by 2 days. No dresses to even wear. Plus lufthanse didn't know where my bags were."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"
Pros: "Seats on PE were comfortable, on time, clean flight."
Cons: "The worst crew possible, absolutely no concept of customer service, Last flight on lufthansa....so no more complaints Customers needs training on how to use the LOO."
Cons: "Seat size and spacing is at an absolute minimum level even for small people."
Pros: "The boarding process is very efficient."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s people are mostly good. But there are some obvious opportunities for people to be more friendly. Also, LH like many others continues to serve cold rolls and cold butter on international flights. KLM warms the rolls! It’s the one small touch that would make Lufthansa’s meal service so much nicer."
Cons: "We were late, had to run through the airport just to catch our next flight"
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Too many stairs, far away from the connection flight."
Pros: "Good food and entertainment options. Efficient boarding and security checks. Some very pleasant and helpful crew members but some not (see negative comments)"
Cons: "Seating for tall passengers very cramped. Crew didn't make slightest attempt to help. Other airlines have noticed and helped regarding this. *Some* crew members were abrupt and perfunctory when they could have been pleasant. Nothing special was being demanded of them. Automated check in luggage machines are frustrating to use for many. many passengers."
Pros: "I LOVED the Crew. Exceptional! Polite, accommodating, kind, friendly. Just wonderful. The food was pretty good too! The entertainment was great. I loved that the toilets were in a separate area downstairs! The flight was overall pretty comfortable. The cabin temperature was also great, not the freezing temperature found on American planes. Thank you LUFTHANSA!!!"
Cons: "The flight was late boarding and late arriving in Munich. I had a connecting flight to make and that was a harrowing experience. I had no precedence offers the other passengers in deplaning. I was given no help in making my connecting flight. I had to queue up for border control. I had to go up and down numerous escalators. I was stopped by a policeman asking for papers which I had already given to border control. I had to take a train and change terminals. My connecting flight was departing from the farthest gate possible in the terminal. I was running the entire time, and I barely made it. Had I not been running, I would have missed my connection."
Pros: "The Quietness of the trip. Enough to sleep."
Cons: "There is no possibility for me ti eat. I have a sugerless diet without any aotmeel, rice, corne and other wheat. Just almendraflour is allowed and cooked vegetables and fruit and chicken and fish. I always have huge difficulties in flying intercontinental."
Pros: "Boarding, food, efficiency of crew."
Cons: "Entertainment system was non-functional."
Pros: "Very friendly staff!"
Cons: "Monitor was very slow and at some moments not working at all (even after restart)"
Cons: "I had to endure 10 hours sitting next to an obese passenger, who was to big to fit into his seat and had to rest his shoulder and elbow over my seat. The crew couldn't do much and so I had to shift myself sideways for the entire journey in order to make space for this obese passenger to rest his arm into and over my seat."
Cons: "They had overbooked the flight and asked to reroute me. I asked if I would still be able to get to my destination at the same time and to make sure I would have a window seat. Everything from the moment I said yes was a terrible. They rebooked me twice on two different routes when I was in the air. Said a steward would meet me (never happened) instead I was running to catch flights on different airlines in two different airports. The entire situation was disgusting. The running was with all of my luggage. Because of the rebooking I was in the last row of 75 rows on a plane with an additional connection. Every flight had delays creating more chaos for the next flight. The only helpful airline in the bunch was Delta."
Pros: "Crew friendly, good food"
Cons: "Cramped seating, can't select seat until checkin without paying (only airline we were unable to select seat)"
Pros: "On time rout"
Pros: "Great job in general"
Cons: "The B747 is big and takes longer to board and longer to get your bag. WIFI is expensive at about $19. Seats are cramped or that's what I felt."
Cons: "Bathroom was at the back of the plane and the drink service was slow so I had top wait overt half an hour to use the bathroom; I was in row 4."
Cons: "First flight mechanical issue so couldn't make it to any of my connecting flights and they had to reroute me, however they couldn't get me to Torino so they got me to Milan and I had to take a two hour bus and then the metro to get where I needed to be. And it took them over an hour to reroute my flight!"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment was slightly inadequate."
Pros: "crew was very nice engaging. shopping at Munich airport was unexpectedly good."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline. I changed seats with my sister mid flight so I could sleep."
Pros: "SAS and BA can do better"
Cons: "Limited space"
Pros: "Excellent Flight"
Pros: "we sat in row 9 which has extended leg room so it was a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "the staff were not very good at reading the different instructions and one of the gentlemen was of Asian decent and it was very difficult to understand his English."
Pros: "Spent to much on the bus, bus was crowd. 2 hours delay. Without clear information of the reason."
Pros: "Still loads of leg room in economy which is great for a tall person like myself."
Cons: "The food, dinner and breakfast from Johannesburg to Frankfurt was not very nice and not the usual good standard."
Cons: "The seat in front of mine was reclined in the already cramped space provided, twice as far back as any other seat I could see. Please look into the recline on that seat for future passengers. The crew hit my seat, repeatedly with their carts and did not remember to offer drinks to us as they pushed it by. The airlines should consider removing that seat as an option to passengers if there is not ample room for the flight crew to maneuver around it. It made for an unpleasant experience overall."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Was not offered a head set inlees it eas in thr blanket and pillow package. But was a nice flight snd srrvice. I injoyed the food."
Cons: "Staff was extremely sassy and unhelpful when I had been traveling for 40 hours."

Pros: "The service"
Pros: "The staff we're grate really helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The entertainment was not working so this made the flight long and boring."
Pros: "The entertainment system is fantastic, much like Singapore Airlines'. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "There was a mix-up of seats in the back of the plane. I didn't mind being asked to switch seats, but it took them a while to sort out the mess. So uncharacteristic of Lufthansa."
Pros: "It was a great flight, great quality on everything."
Cons: "Air conditioning was poor . Despite bringing the issue to the attention of cabin flight attendants, nothing was done to correct the problem"
Pros: "I can't really think o anything."
Cons: "The entertainment was very limited to a few movies. The headphone jack didn't work properly. The stewardess kept bumping into my fathers seat as she passed by. Seats (like other airlines) were unbearable after a few hours of flight time. Food was cold. Just before boarding the plane my carryon was taken because we had made some purchases at the airport and I had a backpack. I always stow my backpack under my seat and I would not have minded so much if my carryon was returned upon exiting the plane in Frankfurt but it wasn't. I had to go pick it up in baggage claim and then go through customs and security again. I am so glad I had a few hours to spare. If not I would have missed my flight to Houston. Please be considerate of this. I always take carryon to avoid uneccessary time consuming issues such as this or lost baggage. Lufthansa did not have an issue with my bags."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and no intimation from the agents regarding this cancellation and thus got created big loss for us."
Cons: "There was not enough fresh air on 44C seat. It also seemed to be too warm. I had to go downstairs into the bathroom section to get more fresh and cool air."
Pros: "Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Seats unbelievably tight :("
Pros: "Crew fantastic. Seats very cramped so hard when travelling alone with people crammed next to you. I am very short and still found seat cramped. Blankets skimpy. Heathrow to San Fran. Johannesburg to Heathrow was more comfortable."
Cons: "Most things I give a high rate on BA but travelling economy these days is very cramped especially as I did two long international legs with short four hour break between."
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "The flight was great and was on time. Down side, no entertainment at all."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"
Pros: "More legroom than other aircraft, plentiful IFE (in-flight entertainment), and a USB charging point in the seat back near the video screen. Decent food and wine, great crew."
Cons: "We departed the terminal for takeoff but a passenger had a medical emergency requiring a return to the gate and off-loading along with finding the passenger’s baggage down below. Not the airline’s fault, of course, but maybe passengers should carefully consider their health before embarking on an 11.5 hour flight from one continent to another."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Good range of in flight snacks and food"
Cons: "No Wifi capabilities"
Pros: "On time, attentive staff"
Pros: "Flight arrived 30 minutes early."
Cons: "No free food even though international flight. Plane delayed on Tarmac. Luggage was left in London and did not make it to Prague until next day."
Pros: "Quick boarding, good crew."
Cons: "Greasy food."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "I loved the new modern plane. It was a bit more comfortable and conveniently designed. Less like a cattle truck and more like a luxury bus."
Pros: "There was no flight"
Cons: "The flight did not take off. What little information we were goven was inaccurate. We called and were rebooked on another flight without being told it was overbooked and our tickets were standby . Dozens of other passengers had the same experience"
Pros: "All pretty good."
Cons: "I received an email before the flight telling me as the flight would be operated by another carrier there would be free refreshments - but it wasn't and there weren't. Rather odd."
Pros: "Cabin Crew flight data punctuality"
Cons: "That I had to PAY for water to drink that was not tap water No room for my carry-on in overhead bins...took some arranging."
Pros: "Crew great, Food great!"
Cons: "Flight has now been cancelled twice. Communication by BA has been lacking. Flight now scheduled to leave 48 hours later than scheduled.See above"
Pros: "Excellent flight. Staff very helpful and professional."
Pros: "Lots of delays due to technical problems with the plan. Had to be moved onto another plane. More than 3 hour delay."
Pros: "Hostess was very nice, helpful and friendly. entertainment was ok and pilot was very informative on delays and info. I think the comic relief video is a keeper. People tend to watch just to see the characters and reactions"
Cons: "Seats were to close together, really squashed, no space for 2 arms on the arm rests and leg room is rubbish. Food is wasn't bad.. could do with more on the trays, seems there have been some budget cuts. Continental breakfast option would be really nice."
Pros: "I did not use the entertainment. The crew was refreshingly professonial, helpful, and cheerful [in a British way]."
Cons: "I'm tall and the budget seat was 'tight'. But it was to be expecdted."
Cons: "Food cost was a surprise. No biggie, just glad I brought a snack"
Pros: "The meals were reasonably nice and the flight was on time"
Cons: "The entertainment screens were old and not clear and not easy to use. The crew was not efficient, not very friendly and not very accommodating. They offered minimal service, contrary to another crew on the A380 flight with BA going from LHR to JNB. Between flights, I guess I saw the better and the worse of BA."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, the A380 is so much quieter than the usual 747 and really clean. We arrived on time."
Cons: "As a silver Avios member I've gotten used to the cabin crew calling me on my name when they come and talk to me. This time they spoke as little as possible and it was all incognito. They seemed to be more interested in various Facebook updates than working business class."
Pros: "Good food, good service, everything on time."
Cons: "I paid for an exit seat and didn't get one and then I had the only seat with no entertainment for 11 hours overnight and no Joyce to move"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Make sure you buy food before your board. Business class seats are too narrow and you can extend out properly because the leg area turns sharply. The TVs must be 20 years old on the plane."
Pros: "The food out of London was excellent, as was the overall service."
Cons: "The flight was oversold and so I lost my seat, and had to wait on standby before I was given a seat, even though I had an assigned seat when I booked my ticket. Very bad!"
Pros: "The crew inside the plane was amazing"
Cons: "As soon as i got to the check in window i was informed my flight was delayed and I had planned everything to be on time and since my flight was one hour late it kind messed things up a little bit. It seems that british airlines had a delay on purpose just to have a full flight, i wanted to change seats im a skinny guy and i was seated between TWO BIG people my elbows had to be tucked in all the time"
Pros: "We boarded almost 1hr early, took off on time and landed just before scheduled."
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Pros: "Great Crew, smooth operation. Efficient service."
Cons: "Boarded flight only to be unboarded at midnight: got to hotel 4am. Long delay in check in/appallingly disorganized. No communication from BA as to problem or when flight would go. Next day checked out of hotel and taken back to airport only to find flight not going as problem not fixed. Passengers taken back to hotel and checked in again! All this time, no official communication from BA. No attempt to reroute elderly passengers or those with small children. Very unimpressed"
Pros: "Very upscale aircraft, Polite staff and overall nice flight."
Cons: "They did not do much to help accommodate us sitting together on the long flight. Poor food. Poor service."
Cons: "Seating configuration was ridiculous as flight attendants constantly leaning across me with trays and their arms nearly hitting my face. Seat & bed functions didn't work. Privacy screen was a joke!"
Pros: "I'm sure there was something but nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Lack of assistance regarding my missing belongings. Incorrect information relating to landing card to be completed when arriving in London. Stretching over me to pass food etc to passenger sitting facing other direction, and literally millimetres from my face, without any politeness having to do it. Configuration gives no privacy as you look at the passenger next to you. Functions of chair did not work. Pillow was thinner Than a piece of paper. Crew showed no concern."
Cons: "I HAVE FLOWN OFTEN ON OTHER AIRLINES & IT WAS THE FIRST TIME TO FIND OUT THAT BRITISH AIRWAYS ONLY ALLOWED ONE FREE CHECKED BAG AND I HAD TO PAY $200 WHEN I ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT, $100 FOR THE 2ND BAG & $100 BECAUSE IT EXCEEDED 51 LBS"
Cons: "Each rep we spoke to said they couldnt help us and to just open a support ticket online.. Kept telling us they dont have a customer service team who can help us and its only available online."
Cons: "breakfast was terrible. It was beans, mushrooms, and asparagus. It also came with 3 pieces of fruit. Coffee was also terrible. If you sitting in the middle seats there is no space. The man's arms sitting in the seat next to me were pretty much in my seat the whole time."
Cons: "Was not able to check in through to Cape Town, only JNB. When arrived in JNB, British Airways flight was not clearly identifiable from ticket (no flight number). Then the flight was delayed, and plane was old! Horrible experience"
Pros: "The staff is always friendly and working at it to make everyone feel welcome and happy. Thanks for the great effort! we do appreciate it."
Cons: "Peppers in the food does not make the food taste nicer, it just adds a flavor that i think does not add great value for airport food. It is the same with raw onions. Once in a container everything tastes like the onions. This has been done away with and my personal opinion is that the same should be done to the peppers. When peppers are added to food, you only taste the peppers and not the rest of the flavors of the food. Hope you find this helpful. Thanks"
Pros: "Crew were very efficient and friendly"
Cons: "Premium economy seats weren't as good as Singapore airlines ones. The seats had small screens and leg room was a bit restricted"
Pros: "I was so happy to be able to stretch out and sleep. The service was impeccable, although as a first-time passenger in this class, I felt a little overwhelmed by the new set up."
Cons: "Wish I knew what was in that spray can they had to empty before we could take off from Johannesburg."
Pros: "I appreciated the orange express card to help me get through Heathrow"
Cons: "Heathrow was very stressful to get through to my connecting flight. Everyone was helpful"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient. The in-flight entertainment was decent."
Cons: "One of the two stewardesses in my section was quite rude. The other one was fine but the other one was awful and made snarky comments any time she was asked a question. Her customer service was terrible and she might do well in considering a different line of work. The seats were uncomfortable, but every airline has uncomfortable economy seating. Other than that, the airline lost my baggage. It has been almost two weeks since my flight and they still have not found it. I have been advised to file an itemized list of everything that was in my bag for reimbursement but I have been informed it will most likely be several months until I receive any payment. I have spent a lot of time waiting on hold to talk to anyone from baggage services and any time I have got through the people have been very unhelpful. I feel the airline should be going above and beyond to rectify the situation but thus far I have been doing all of the work. That is pretty poor seeing as the airline is completely at fault. WIth the terrible service that I have received so far, I am not holding my breath for that reimbursement check."
Cons: "Everything Delayed boarding Delayed flight without informing us. 45 min Beverage (Apple juice and water was not cold) Airconditioning was non existent whille waiting for take off."
Pros: "I like BA as they tend to have comfortable seating with a little extra legroom."
Cons: "The plane is definitely very tired. Some of the headrests were even broken. The plane does need an overall."
Pros: "Well mannered air hostesses"
Cons: "The delay"
