Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "the food on LH755 was decent. LH454 second snack, a cold sandwich was inedible! Too salty, soggy and just plain yucky!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed in Frankfurt due to technical issues. That was fixed, but ended up missing the flight to Minneapolis. Lufthansa provided vouchers to hotel and shuttle to the hotel (holiday inn express) and back to the airport. We stood out in the cold for 45 mins but the shuttle did not show up. Ended up taking Uber to the hotel only to find out their shuttle service does not start in the morning before 5:30 am. They booked me on a 6 am flight with 5:45 boarding time. The hotel scheduled a taxi to pick me up at 3:30 am to make back to the airport on time. I ended up spending $70 and I’m totally exhausted. I wished I just stayed at the airport. Not to mention the quality of the hotel accommodations is less than average. Very disappointed with how this whole situation was managed."
Cons: "crew and knowledge on parent control for video, kids safety jacket not distributed and no knowledge or help on connecting flights and no knowledge on car seat use in flight (i was told it was NOT safe to have the child in the car seat for take off and landing)"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Should have been on time"
Cons: "I was traveling with my 5 and 10 year old kids. Lufthansa got us three seats in three different locations. When I asked to help us get seats together flight attendants told us that I should ask passengers if they could switch seats. Apparently Lufthansa staff doesn’t ask passengers to do it."
Cons: "Security check at the Frankfurt airport is illogical and terrible! It took 90 minutes to complete the security and go from one terminal to another!"
Pros: "crew onboard and food/entertaiment."
Cons: "could do without the delays. transit time was reduced to less than an hour in Frankfurt because flight to Frankfurt was delayed by 45 mins. it is becoming very stressful to transit in FRA every time."
Cons: "Poor customer support and no response on phone calls when u tried to cancel my return ticket."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was on time. Overall excellent experience."
Cons: "On line check-in 23 hrs prior to departure is not convenient for out of town passengers travelling to B'luru to catch the flight, couldn't get internet access to do the check -in on time. 48 to 72 hr check-in window would be better."
Cons: "My seats were broken on two flights--could not recline. Maintain the equipment better."
Cons: "These scheduled flights on Jan 1, 2019 were cancelled by Lufthansa and we were not informed of these scheduled cancellations either by email or SMS. We waited for several hours at the airport before being informed by an airport staff. We missed one day of work and lot of inconvenience with transportation and accommodation in Bengaluru."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful and I love flying Lufthansa always:)."
Cons: "Onboard entertainment didn’t have good selection for me for such a long flight 4 different flights I took.And some of the touch screens didn’t work properly:(."
Cons: "We were unable to fly this trip."
Pros: "Travel is good and comfortable"
Cons: "Travel from Frankfurt to London was quite late start . Delay in immigration check."
Cons: "The food on Lufthansa is terrible. Many crew members are rude and unaccomodating, even in business class. I will never pick Lufthansa if I have to fly business class again."
Pros: "Was very courteous and helpful though out the trip"
Pros: "Having a very difficult time thinking of something I like about the whole service. Maybe the checking in process was a little bit smoother at San Diego compared to other airports."
Cons: "As many of you know, Frankfurt/San Diego is a new service offered by Lufthansa. It touts direct flights to and from Europe. It’s main advertising draw was connection to the east. Many of their connecting flights at Frankfurt are scheduled within an hour of arrival. This possess a high risk of missing your connecting flight. I experienced this personally as a major number of my fellow travelers missed their connecting flights. Though Frankfurt has good directions, transfers take a long time due to multiple security checks and due to the size of the Airport. LAYOVER OF AT LEAST TWO HOURS WOULD BE BEST. Anything less, you risk missing your flight. I was personally selected TWICE for ‘random check’ for the same flight! Not sure how that can happen! The flight itself is long and arduous. the economy seats are small, cramped and don’t recline much at all. The entertainment selection was very limited. The TV touch screen barely worked. The food was tasteless and service was not much better. I have a hard time sleeping on flights with such bad seats but we had air hostess who kept talking the whole flight and that did not help with resting my eyes. I highly suggest taking a different airline through LAX. I personally feel like driving to LA and taking a flight there would be the wise move."
Pros: "Excellent boarding experience. Very good food, overall a very comfortable journey."
Pros: "All around service"
Cons: "That I had to get off of the plane."
Cons: "Boarding free for all, therefore confusing and slow"
Cons: "Could have more options for entrainment"
Pros: "The business class area was spacious"
Cons: "Crew is too curt... they could use a little more smile"
Cons: "Less movies (Hindi) and economy seats aren't as comfortable as emirites."
Pros: "Travel time was good and easy travel"
Cons: "Entertainment tv tapes"
Pros: "Premium Economy is awesome! Bigger seats with more leg room than I need (I'm just over 6 feet tall), leg rest (oh yeah) and a travel kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks and travel sleep mask. The crew was very good-hospitable and accommodating."
Cons: "Economy is terrible-small seats-went one way on economy and never doing that again!! FYI- Emirates economy is awesome and so this is my first time not flying economy.."
Pros: "Our flight from BLR to FRA got cancelled because of bad weather. The agent at the check in desk immediately put us on an alternate AIr France flight via CDG to LAX, which left an hour before our FRA flight. The service on the flight was excellent. But we are most thankful for the quick re-booking on a different alternative, ensuring no hiccup. We will only be flying Lufthansa from now on, and recommending Lufthansa to all friends and colleagues."
Pros: "Good crew, liked the food and service. Better aircraft interior."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, lines weren't well controlled. Ground crew needs better training in being proactive, assertive, communicate better with tired passengers who have had to wait for 5hours in the very staid, and outdated Frankfort airport. Same problems with the headsets."
Cons: "Guy next to me died. Emergency landing. They refused to hold the gate for my connection in Frankfurt for 15 minutes."
Pros: "Food, crew and comfort was alright"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. There was not announcement. Everyone rushed to board and was very chaotic"

Cons: "It was very good"
Pros: "Very pleasant experience: comfortable airplane and helpful crew, timely departure/arrival, continuing support with information about baggage after arrival."
Pros: "The Lufthansa service starting with the baggage checkers in Newark NJ. They provide service and a enjoyable flying experience."
Cons: "The layover in Frankfort was long and the gate we went out is in need of an upgrade but B10"
Pros: "Searing, comfort"
Cons: "Priority bags do not come first."
Pros: "Faster, newer planes."
Cons: "Flights were late and boarding was caios, no one had any clue what to do. Blankets were filthy. Entertainment had limited choice. Considering I took six flights in this month, I will let it slide that they ran out of New movies. Worst part was food. Obviously, there is no quality consideration when they decide menu. Check Emirates or other similar fare bracket airlines to understand the gravity of Lufthansa food problem. If one reason I had to choose to drop Lufthansa from my future consideration then that would be worst food and drinks. I would strongly recommend that they should assign people who need additional time to board at the back of the plane. It will help them to go back of the plane faster and avoid gridlock in the middle. Another advantage is it will help other passengers leave plane faster at the end of the ride. Boarding process will be come significantly faster by filling the plane from back to front by loading passanger with children and who needs time at the first loading area at the back of the plane. Thanks"
Pros: "LOVE the premium economy class - i have long legs & was traveling with two kids - we were all very comfortable!!!"
Cons: "would like to see a movie category called : academy award winners"

Cons: "The seat was getting pushed back"
Pros: "Food and overall service"
Pros: "on time."
Cons: "was too congested"
Cons: "Food Crew appearances"
Cons: "Not enough indian movies. Too many other foreign movies. English movies were too old. Frankfurt airport is the worst airport. Terminal to terminal is too far."
Pros: "Cabin comfort. Friendly staffs."
Cons: "Food quality. Wifi wasn't working."
Pros: "The 30 min delay was madeup and the flight landed on time. Service was Good!"
Cons: "it started 30 min late and my time to catch the connecting flight was reduced to 1 hour"
Pros: "The Lufthansa flight to Montreal was a really full flight. Lufthansa already gives Silver Star Alliance card holders preferential seats, but for the Montreal flight I got upgraded to Business. What a pleasure! I felt like a really valued customer. At a time where one has to pick value for money and figure out your loyalties in air travel; I can promise that Lufthansa will be a top choice for me on future flights. Excellent in all regards."
Pros: "The crew was quite nice and boarding at Philadelphia was organized."
Cons: "I was disappointed with the movie selections; there weren't many new offerings."
Cons: "My video player did not work properly for the whole 11.5hrs of flight from Munich to LA. It was extremely tough to get it to play a movie. I am not blaming the crew, but their only suggestion was to restart it... Which I did... several times... but the player had a life of its own. Eventually I found a way to be able to get to a movie and get it to play, but it was not easy. I wish that there would be an extra player that could be provided as a replacement... Thank you."
Pros: "Asked for wheelchair. People at the front desk very professional. Helped with elevator for elderly. Meal was good and our previously requested Asian Vegetarian meals were served."
Cons: "Lines for boarding not clear. Some were asked to go in the front and there was some confusion. Worst part - 3 family members were seated at different places and it was very difficult to make sure senior citizen travelling with me was alright, got food on time, took her medicines, etc. At the desk when I asked to be seated together, we were told to ask in the flight and in the flight they were unable to help."
Pros: "A short flight without complications"
Cons: "Because of the short time there was no service"
Pros: "They put us in a hotel."
Cons: "I lost my trip to Venice and almost didn't make my cruise ship. Lost $300 non refundable room deposit. Nothing more than an "I'm sorry." from Lufthansa. I'll never fly them again."
