Pro: "The flight attendants were stellar--polite, respectful, helpful, attentive. I want to particularly commend the attendant who, after I notified her that someone was very ill in the adjacent bathroom, stood discreetly nearby and offered the person a glass of water when he emerged. Very considerate."
Contra: "The transfer was a horrible, stressful experience. We knew it as a short connection but Lufthansa had accepted it. On our outward bound flight three weeks earlier, we were all met and escorted swiftly by a flight attendant from the first leg plane (EWR-MUN) to the second leg plane (MUN-Nice) to ensure that we all made it onboard. Impressive. On our return journey, no such luck! No attendant to meet us, and a huge line at immigration, full of panicked and stressed-out passengers jockeying for position, with no-one from ANY airline there to do a triage for those with the shortest connections. Ridiculous. In addition, the passport-scanning machines were very slow and quirky. My own passport was rejected because there was no evidence I had passed through Munich on my outward bound journey!! RIDICULOUS. I managed to slip through to a human being and begged the immigration officer to let me go through with my husband, who had had no such problem. The officer told me he could not find a stamp from my earlier transit through!!! Eventually I suppose he did because he let me through. The stamp was there, I found it, but it had been sloppily applied and was half off the page...hence the rejection by the scanner. We made the flight by minutes. NOT GOOD! Surely Lufthansa could do better in their own country???"
Pro: "Crew brilliant but seat very tight"
Contra: "Boarding procedure slow and hectic"
Contra: "Will never use Lufthansa again"
Contra: "10+ hours flight. No food. No beverage. No snack. No blanket. I travel a lot and never saw a flight without service like this before. At the very minimum, snacks are reasonable. Extremely bad experience. Very disappointed with Lufthansa."
Pro: "The flight was adequate."
Contra: "Sandwich was extremely unappetising and there were no hot drinks. The worst thing was that in transiting from the SAA flight to the Lufthansa flight we were obliged to go through security which seems unnecessary. The security staff were awful. Bullying, rude and totally unsympathetic to the fact that having brought water from the first plane to the second plane we had to either drink it or throw it away. One guy in particular, a tall greying man evoked the worst stereotypes of brutal secret policemen. Perhaps he formerly worked for Stasi or he was having testosterone problems. Totally unacceptable behaviour."
Contra: "The boarding gate has too little space and was chaos."
Pro: "Booked upper deck, lots of leg room and space. Very comfortable 11hr flight. Staff were lovely and food good."
Pro: "Great film choices, short flight time - no delays. The flight was relatively full but I experienced no discomfort and the food was good. I think they ran out of one option but this didn't bother me as it wasn't my choice."
Pro: "The Lufthansa app provides updates on plane status and gate number, etc."
Contra: "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."
Pro: "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."
Contra: "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."
Contra: "The whole experience"
Pro: "Flight info from Kayak was excellent and up-to-date, more so than the airlines."
Pro: "Crew looked after me after a family took up a whole row including my designated seat. I need up with the back row to myself so could put my feet up & chill after a less than pleasant 5+ hours wait at Munich!"
Pro: "Crew amazing"
Contra: "No entertainment."
Pro: "I liked size of the lavatory ,food"
Contra: "I didn’t like selection of movies and seat wasn’t that comfortable"
Pro: "Did manage to get priority transfer which I requested from Dubrovnik but was told. “We do not do those”"
Contra: "Rest of the flight was bearable nothing write about. Typical cheap alow cost flight"
Pro: "Height Space, good pilot and some of the food. Good landing and overall pilot skill."
Contra: "For the whole journey I had a small child kicking, knocking, tapping behind me. Kept waking me up also nearly ten hours of whining. I was genuinely uneasy and uncomfortable for the whole trip. I think there should be a designated child with adult area as I really don’t think this is acceptable. It is stressful enough traveling for 30+ hours this really is not welcome."
Pro: "Lufthansa is an efficient operation."
Contra: "1. The comfort in economy class was insulting and horrible. I am 6'3", 175lbs and was trapped in one uncompromisingly uncomfortable position for 8+ hours. Torture is a word that comes to mind. If I were a smaller sized person, 5'8" or less, perhaps this may be acceptable, but for anyone over 6'. forget it. You must pay loads extra to be given a respectable seat. I am hopeful that I don't develop a blood clot from this flight. This lack of room is a seriously dangerous situation for many people on long-distance flights. 2. The seat recline feature added further insult to the mix. Once airborne, the lady in the seat in front of me sent her seat into what was left of any personal space or legroom I had. The video screen on the setback in front of me was literally 6" from my face now. Several people who were also of taller size complained, one was so adamant about retaining his space that he fought verbally with the lady in front of him, and eventually a stewardess had to be called. My wife complained on my behalf, and was able to get the lady in front of me to reposition her seat, but eventually, I noticed it somehow found its way back to recline again. I know Lufthansa is not alone with this predicament, but something HAS TO BE DONE to fix this huge problem with air travel. 3. The food on the flight to Germany was way better than the return trip. The meal consisted of mushy carrots, greasy mashed potato-like side, and a piece of OK chicken smothered in 'Murican BBQ sauce. I was insulted. Lufthansa had been better than this in the past. Oh, and the dinner roll was so dry and crumbly, it could have been weeks old. The snack before landing was called pizza, but I wouldn't call it that It was a bunch of tasteless dough, a little bit of tomato like sauce and a smattering of cheese. I wish Lufthansa would stick to what they do best; German-influenced food. Be true to who you are. Most people I know love German food, and I always have looked forward to LH food selections. Not now."
Pro: "Good variety of on-board entertainment"
Contra: "We were in last row of our section of the plane and space was very cramped, especially for my 6'1" husband. It was not a very physically comfortable flight."
Pro: "Not much at all"
Contra: "I was enquiringly about the transfer of my luggage from the Hurghada flight with sunexpress with one of the Lufthansa correspondents at the central fest and the guy was absolutely clueless. Needless to say- our luggage wasn’t in Manchester when we arrived. Had to travel back to Manchester to collect it 8 hours later as it was left in Munich. Not happy one bit"
Pro: "Luthansa flight was very good. On time, and best quality"
Pro: "All the staff were friendly and the complimentary food and drink snacks was lovely."
Contra: "Our flights were delayed both on the way there and back"
Pro: "Great flight and a super smoth landing in strong southerly winds."
Contra: "The seats are too close. When reclined it's not possible to get out."
Pro: "DID NOT LIKE MY LUGGAGE GOING MISSING! IT'S STILL MISSING AND, AFTER RECEIVING PROMISES OF DELIVERY TODAY, THERE IS NOW NO RECORD OF MY LUGGAGE!"
Contra: "DID NOT LIKE MY LUGGAGE GOING MISSING. IT'S STILL MISSING AND, AFTER RECEIVING PROMISES OF DELIVERY TODAY, THERE IS NOW NO RECORD OF MY LUGGAGE!"
Pro: "Every thing"
Contra: "Refusal to board as our flight was a few minutes landing"
Pro: "Great seats!"
Contra: "Staff didn't seem very happy."
Pro: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines (both of which I traveled on as part of this trip)."
Contra: "I would highly recommend both Lufthansa and Austrian adjust their entertainment systems. They seem not to weight much the top films with, say 75% Rotten Tomatoes reviews or higher. Even if there were fewer options for cost reasons, I would think they'd still have more watcher enjoyment. Rather than pad the list with the likes of Boss Baby or Going out in Style or even a mediocre 60% offering in the Fast and Furious franchise. Wonderful crew, though, can't say enough about how polite and attentive they are."
Pro: "Good flight, nice crew"
Contra: "2,5 hrs delay, no bus available despite boarding started"
Pro: "I loved the TVs, food, and the service. The TV's had so much to watch, and made the time pass so much faster. The service was amazing! They came by so often to give us whatever we needed! Great experience!"
Pro: "Staff was very friendly and caring."
Contra: "No entertainment and half sandwich with some cookies was the only food we got."
Pro: "The food was pretty good. Normally I can't eat airplane food but it was actually good."
Contra: "The seat didn't go back at all"
Pro: "Best part: Getting off the plane and swearing never to fly with Lufthansa again."
Contra: "Flying to Munich- flight was cancelled. Had to rebook on United for the following day. Arrived almost 2 days late (the original was direct, the United had layovers) and missed a planned trip to Neuschwanstein castle. Flying from Munich- The entertainment screen was broken, completely unusable. After a hard reset by the flight attendant several times... Still broken. She said she thought it would fix itself once we were at cruising altitude. Nope. Notified the flight attendant who said vaguely "I'll see what I can do..." Never came back to check, never got offered any sort of compensation (even something like a free mixed drink would have been nice), offer to move seats, nothing. So- ten hours with no entertainment/nothing to watch, just a malfunctioning screen. Food was mediocre. We boarded late, and left almost 1 hour late because they had to wait for an employee (who was not working, just getting a ride back) to board. Literally there and back with Lufthansa was a fiasco. On top of it, we have been back for 3 weeks and are still waiting to hear back from Lufthansa customer service. Apparently they only communicate by email with complaints. Not over the phone. So after repeated emails, just radio silence. Terrible airline."
Pro: "Normal Flight, short, was coming from Munchen"
Pro: "Lufthansa is by far the best airline. All crew members were very friendly and attentive. Food was also great."
Contra: "Boarding was a mess and food was not up to the mark"
Pro: "as usual flight itself was okay"
Contra: "no major complaints"
Pro: "Nothing was extraordinary."
Contra: "Seat comfort. Entertainment. Toilets far from the premium zone. Meal choice. Wine choice, headset. All sub par compared to other airlines in the premium economy space. In particular, Qantas is much much closer to business class than to economy class in it's premium economy product. Lufthansa is just not delivering value to this segment."
Pro: "service was good except for 1 attendant that didn't want to be there. Entertainment choices were very good."
Contra: "Food was very poor. Chicken was rubbery and the two pasta choices tasted horrible with no meat choice other than chicken. The biggest issue was the extreme delays from Lufthansa that ate into a 4+ hour layover that I should have had at LAX instead I arrived at the opposite terminal from my LAX flight with no time to get through customs and onto the plane I missed the plane by 10 minutes and had to book a hotel that wasn't paid for because it was Lufthansa's fault and not United which then put me and my family home a full 24 hours later than was originally planned."
Pro: "Food & Entertainment were OK"
Contra: "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."
Contra: "Full plane, no options to spread out."
Pro: "Smooth landing in Chicago."
Contra: "The crew in my section near the rear of the plane was competent, but snippy. None seemed approachable. I contrast them with the Lufthansa crew from Toronto to Munich who were short-handed but so pleasant even though they were overworked due to some crew members not showing up. Lufthansa food is average at best. The central restroom area on the MUC to ORD flight became filthy. Aren't crew members supposed to police that area? Or are passengers supposed to bring rubber gloves to clean it halfway through the flight?"
Pro: "Lufthansa is one of few airlines in Europe with pure class and excellent service. Even in economy!"
Contra: "Whole experience with them was a nightmare and is still ongoing. They won't help me so I had to turn to Amex to settle everything and get my money back. Unbelievable. The airport had to close due to an emergency, that's out of Lufthansa's hands I obviously understand that. However, the way we were "helped" through all of this was unbelievable- over two and a half hours of phone calls with them, while in Europe (so paying God knows what per minute), 4 hours to get my luggage back so we could leave, absolutely no one from Lufthansa around to help or even tell us what's going on, put us on a flight the following day with two layovers now (paid more for only one layover but what can I do). Next day, at Alitalia gate (Lufthansa put me on an itinerary with flights from Alitalia, Lufthansa and United) had to pay AGAIN to check the bag that I had just paid to check the previous day where we did not end up flying anywhere (showed Alitalia the receipt, they didn't care in the slightest and said its Lufthansas problem, 0 stars for them as well), either way finally got through our 2 layovers, only to discover the final leg of our trip (United/ Lufthansa flight) is delayed 3 hours. Just about to board, now it's delayed another 5 hours. Because we were short a pilot...... Short a pilot, really....? Ended up getting home at 2am on a work night, completely jet lagged and utterly exhausted from being in an airport for 2 straight days. Supposed to get compensation as per United flight crew, only I put my ticket information in the website and it doesn't work for me of course because I have a Lufthansa ticket. No one cares, no one helps, now it's time for Amex to step in and get all of my money back."
Contra: "I was rerouted to Munich from Amman because I missed my connection to Berlin due to a late aircraft. Once in Munich there was no one at the Royal Jordanian booking desk to direct me. This was even after staff was pages by the airport help desk. On a hunch And out of desperation to get to my destination I went to another airlines desk and they found they had a reservation for me, made by Royal Jordanian. I was never informed of this and had I known sooner I wouldn't have wasted so much time waiting at their desk."
Avionul, fiind foarte mic (și, probabil, vechi), senzațiile au fost nu tocmai plăcute - îmi părea că suntem frunză-n vânt. Majoritatea călătorilor au avut stare de disconfort, din momentul decolării până când avionul a ajuns la o înălțime unde s-a putut stabiliza...
Contra: "Boarding... always boarding being confuse! Tarom flights are... difficult to understand why this happens"
Pro: "Crew super"
Contra: "food, seat. In general the whole aircraft is not convenient"
Pro: "checking baggage included, comfortable plane"
Contra: "the plane was almost an hour late"

Pro: "Seating availability at check in no"
Contra: "No tv"
Pro: "Business class seat"
Contra: "1,5 hours late, no info about it. Old plane."

Contra: "DO NOT FLY THIS AIRLINE they lost my luggage and WILL NOT ANSWER THE PHONE not sure if I'll ever get it back. Worst customer service ever."
Pro: "Leg room, online check in, being on time. Overall ok."
Contra: "Old plane, dry food, not too friendly staff and. Not the best value for money"
Pro: "The boarding process was not clear. I was not able to add luggage during check in and it said it was included for one piece up to 23 kg. Though my bag fit those requirements I was forced to wait in a separate line and pay 50’euro. The lines were wrapped around and not clearly marked for each flight."

Pro: "Very nice price"
Contra: "Delay in flight, delay in lagguage delivery"
Pro: "Boarding was good, flight and landing"
Contra: "Had to go through security check in Istanbul"
Contra: "Several Tarom flights leaving at the same time in the morning- total lack of basic organization: lines for all types of travelers (bag drop and check-in) mixed in. Result: long wait times, quarrels among passengers, all frustrated."
Pro: "Smooth flight, the staff was friendly."
Contra: "10 minutes delay at departure."
Pro: "Short and sweet... friendly staff"
Pro: "Quick and easy"
Contra: "No food option without meat"

Contra: "It was OK"

Pro: "well organized; nice service attendance, friendly and efficient staff."
Pro: "Pleasant staff, good flight."
Contra: "Nothing in particular. This was a quick flight, so I didn't expect much in terms of entertainment or food."
Pro: "Everithing was ok!"
Contra: "It was nothing wrong, I feel very well!"
Pro: "It was a pleasure to fly with them. I wish they flew in the continental US too."
Contra: "It was impossible to make the check-in online. I had to go to the airport very early. The lady at the check-in desk said that my name was NOT in the system, nor was my flight reservation. She had to look up by the ticket number (highly unusual, she said). The seats were apart for me and my wife, despite the fact thet I had chosen together seats when I made the booking. Next time I will think twice before I go for Kayak or Brussels Airlines (for example, they don't have Bucharest Airport on their departure list on the B.A. website... after all, Romania is a E.U. country!) The second flight took off after 20 mins. delay, and landed w 15 mins. delay."
Pro: "The professionalism of the crew and the food."
Contra: "too small aircraft sensitive towards the weather changes."
Contra: "Terrible handling of a situation with a passenger with special needs."
Pro: "Staff was nice and accommodating. Comfortable plane."
Contra: "The food, an omelet, was not very good. Slight delay with flight."

Pro: "It was comfortable with good price."
Pro: "Attentive flight attendants"
Contra: "There was no entertainment, but that was O.K."
Contra: "Typically a beverage Is offered before take off. This flight it was not offered till the breakfast came out. May have been due to late start to boarding process"

Contra: "Crew members bored, without any mood of working"
Pro: "the crew on board was very nice and friendly , sitting was good"
Contra: "we had an un announced delay ,there was not mention priority business class while boarding and food on board was not a nice choice"
Pro: "The flights are announced once in the boarding area, but there is no announcement as to boarding. The signal to board is a flashing "boarding" sign in the departure lounge. At that moment everyone gets up and rushes to the line. Both priority and economy sections are boarded together. So, fastest runner wins. But it works. We boarded more quickly than any flight I've been on, and although boarding started 10 minutes later than scheduled, we departed exactly on time."
Pro: "Staff was very greateous and attentive."
Contra: "Plane left late, the gate attendant was in no hurry to get the flight out on time and the legroom was the worst bin have ever had."
