Pros: "The crew was Ok except at the beginning when they could help more inside the plane with finding the seating."

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and kind"
Cons: "Seats are small and not much legroom, like on all flights. I hadn’t found a way to pay for a checked bag online, so that process was a little awkward - had to leave my passport and boarding passes at the check in counter, walk to the ticketing counter, wait in line to pay, then walk back to the check in counter. But the staff was very friendly and kind."
Pros: "Everything from check in to offloading went smoothly. Pretty good food and accommodating flight staff."

Lufthansa very little space for check in & luggage at Charles de Gaule and staff advised me to arrive at 4am for 7:45am departure so I could stand in line to get boarding pass and deposit luggage.

Received headphones, a pillow and a blanket for the flight. Legroom was good, but probably cramped for people over 6'0" tall. 24 hour online check-in was smooth an trouble free. I like having the boarding pass on my phone. No paper to carry around."
Pros: "wasn't Lufthansa it was actually Singapore airlines they changed my flight and it was very good"
Cons: "It was very good"
Cons: "Dear sir or Madam, I’m writing this complaint as I feel so mistreated and so disrespected, I had a ticket# 2208688265549 with a confirmation# WP6DHB travelling from Tulsa , OK, USA to Cairo, Egypt. Everything was great as expected and recommended by my uncle who travels with your respected company at least twice a month till I got to Frankfort airport to take flight# 0582 from Frankfort to Cairo. I was stopped while heading to the plan by the flight manager as he called himself later, and told me that I have to only have one item on the plan, I already had one carry on and my hand bag that has my laptop and the charger, I told him that I was told by Lufthansa customer service the night before traveling to confirm the luggage weight and size that I’m allowed one carry on plus personal item like a hand bag or lap top bag and they have to meet specific dimensions. I even offered to call the customer service number for verification, he replied ‘’I don’t care, I’m the flight manager and you will do what I say’’. His words were really hurting, I showed him the tag on my carry on that I got from the previous flight it said (approved carry on) don’t remember exactly what it said, he reached to my carry on and tare that tag, I didn’t think that was appropriate even if the tag had no value he doesn’t have any right to touch my luggage without my approval, then he tried to grab my ticket from my hand saying I will get you off the flight, I got really upset and told him don’t touch my belongs. There was a moment of silence because I think I raised my voice (my apology to him and to the company for that), I realized that the conversation is not going any where so I decided to file a complaint (not because he wanted to me to only have one item but mostly because of his attitude) so I asked him for his employment ID number he walked away without saying anything, waited till he walked close enough that I can ask him again this time he refused to give me his employment ID number, asked him for his name he said it so softly, I asked him to spell because I didn’t hear it right he said it so softly he refused, then I had to look for his badge and the name on the badge I believe his first name started with P and last name started with T. I waited a few days till I got to talk to my uncle and told him what happened as he is the one who recommended Lufthansa and he has a lot of experience with your services he said that they might need to do that because the flight was complete and they want to offer luggage place for everybody, but what I surprising is there was many empty seats on the plan my seat was 032C and the 2 seats beside me (032A and 032B) were empty also there was a lot of carry-ons room everywhere. So I don’t know why he was this way with me, I’m really disappointed specially that is only my first flight with Lufthansa since 2015, that flight manager made me have an extremely rough experience. one more thing when I told him I’m going to compla"
Pros: "No vegetatarion food on return flight"
Cons: "No vegetarian food on return flight from Frankfurt"
Cons: "2 people working passport control in line about 100 people were in. Most had connecting flights leaving shortly. People were panicked they would miss their flights."
Cons: "Entertainment center did not work. I paid for wifi and did not work and need my money back. The headphone jack for the tv did not work."
Pros: "Service, comfort"
Pros: "The staff was so accommodating and friendly! Great trip!"
Pros: "Movie selection, wine and food"
Cons: "Crying babies - outside of the crew control"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and efficient, and the entertainment system was modern."
Cons: "The pilot didn't get us over the intercom even once. No communication at all from the cockpit. Staff was ok, but not very friendly. Seats were very close together in my row (30)… but other rows had seats with more legroom m."
Cons: "the seat"
Pros: "The pilots"
Cons: "It was a bit hot in the salon. Food was average. Flight intendants were not very attentive. My neighbor was waiting for about 20 min to get someone picked up her empty glass. Entertainment: there was no Russian language."
Pros: "This flight from Munich to Charlotte was operated by Lufthansa. To my surprise (and a little help from a friend) I was upgraded to business class. does not get much better than that !!"
Cons: "My seat (33A) was would not recline. I alerted the stewardess early on, she called a male colleague, both smiled and reassured me that they will deal with it later on. The uncomfortable seat became even more cramped as at the end of the dinner service the passenger ahead reclined his seat. I tried to catch the attention of the cabin crew - in vain. On disembarkation I saw the stewardess and reminded her of her promise of help . She sweetly wished me a "pleasant weekend". The cabin crew did not seem to care much over the discomfort of an elderly traveler in economy class."
Cons: "I had a short transit time in Munich (40 minutes). Munich website promises that this is possible and that gates are close to each other and if the first flight is late, then someone will help you to your next flight. My first flight was about 10 mins late. Although assistance was provided to people connecting to some of the other flights, no-one helped me with my connection. I asked two ground staff and was just told to make my own way to the next gate, which was not close. It was in a different terminal! After literally running through two terminals, I did not make it to the gate in time and had to wait for the following flight which got me home over three hours late. Lufthansa did give me a five euro meal voucher though (which doesn't buy very much in an airport cafe)."
Pros: "New airplane, very nice and comfortable. Great service. Smooth flight.. 10 hours - no turbulence. :)"
Cons: "They lost Both of my laguages."
Cons: "No vegan food"
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."
Pros: "Food, very well organized crew"
Cons: "No leg room, long flight"
Pros: "The food, the crew and the entertainment were top-notch, best flight I've been on. Economy was more comfortable than other flights :) will always try to fly with Lufthansa in the future!"
Cons: "Boarding was very chaotic"
Pros: "Landing was very smooth! Loved being able to go downstairs to baths b/c it was a chance to move!"
Cons: "AC was broken for the first 30-45min. It was quite hot with all of the people stuck on the plane. Luckily, the pilot was able to use the plane's engines to create AC."
Cons: "It needs bigger seats More comfortable for far flights"
Cons: "They sit us at row with 3 TVs and in order to watch we need to watch for 12 hours curved for 45 degrees. Please try to do this your self."
Pros: "Short flight. Not much to say."
Cons: "My frequent flyer number did not show up"
Cons: "I have never had a such an awful flight, it all started from the registration where i was told to pay for the overload of baggage eventhough my husbands ticket had not been cancelled and he was not with me, so I lost the pay for his ticket and extra money. It seems to be unfair and unreasonable taking extra money for the baggage in this situation. I have experienced the worst flight ever paying for the seat with extra space where it got very cold. The five blankets were offered with a pair of sox and I used them but it didn't help. The air condition was blowing very hard and eventually I have cought a cold. I strongly advise all potential customers of Lufthansa to stay away from seat number 27 on that plane."
Pros: "The service, nice clean airplane, decent food"
Cons: "During the over night time passengers we not offered any drinks, you had to go to the galley"
Cons: "I wasn't able to board with bags so I had to change flight I paid class upgrade and never received refund"
Pros: "Miami based cabin crew were nice, but they sat in the back of the plane and talked to each other then whole flight. Pretty unprofessional. Chicago based crew from start to finish were fantastic."
Cons: "Miami crew from checkin to boarding were rude, demeaning and unhelpful in this extreme situation. Really rude, particularly the gate boarding pass girl. Haven't you learned your lesson about being rude to passengers yet? I won't be choosing AA again. Your loss, I fly a lot."
Pros: "We appreciated being upgraded to first class using my segments."
Cons: "For a 2 1/2 hour flight in first class all we got was our pick from a basket of chips. Horrible!"
Pros: "That I was FINALLY able to get to my destination after a THREE AND HALF HOUR DELAY. Mechanical malfunctions, Get crew unable to find the pilots once the mechanical malfunction was corrected, sitting on the plane for an hour waiting for some "guy" to be located who went missing who was responsible for our weight to certified for flight. I didn't like anything."
Cons: "Too freakin cold."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "I'm a frequent flyer with AA; it's very dissapointing that I have missed my connections with AA about 60% of the time this year. I don't know what's going on with the airline, but it seems they are falling behind the curve in terms of punctuality. Seriously thinking about changing airlines."
Pros: "EVERYTHING about this flight was a NIGHTMARE. From the delays, to the agents, to the crew - absolutely terrible. Will never fly American again. They claim the flights are full but have a TON of empty seats and don't let you pay for upgrades."
Cons: "They cancelled two of my flights in one weekend. We will not use American Airlines again."
Cons: "Plane was 30 minutes late which was not idea because we were getting to our destination in the late evening. Boarding was a mess."
Pros: "Nothing other than being able to get off this plane ride as soon as possible."
Cons: "Everything. Friendlier crew who could look like they enjoy their job more. Seat and comfort. Seat pitch was awful for a major airline. Some discount airlines seats were more comfortable w/ more space. Boarding was archaic. Climbing stairs down to tarmac, bus ride, climbing up stairs to plane."
Cons: "Plane flight got delayed until 6pm from 10:30am. What."
Pros: "The window seat of this plane is so closely placed to the window that you can hardly sit straight up and down. Food is non existent and one drink offered in 4.5 hours is bad service"
Cons: "Virtually everything"
Pros: "The service representative at check in was very helpful and went above and beyond to assist my husband and I. American Airlines was outstanding on all fronts."
Cons: "However my overall experience with kayak and csfare was poor as they made a mistake on the name on my ticket that was not found until the day of my international flight and once I got a hold of customer service after calling 4 different numbers... most did not have 24 hr service... they stated they were unable to assist me and had no other options or solutions. American Airlines tried to help and eventually were able to accommodate me through purchasing a new ticket and ensured my husband and I were still sitting together. Kayak and csfare basically told me sorry for your luck. I will not use this company again."
Pros: "Flight attendant did not speak French"
Cons: "Wifi barely worked, not worth the money"
Pros: "Everything was very smooth and pleasant overall."
Pros: "Not a challenging process from beginning to end."
Cons: "Even on a big ole B777 you better upgrade to bigger seats"
Cons: "We were told that our flight could not leave due to the absence of the pilot who was flying in from Detroit. Not sure why there was not a pilot available when there was a plane available."
Pros: "DCA based AA gate agents were awesome. We were booked on a flight that was delayed, turned out there was a flight about to depart (it had been delayed 2.5hrs due to weather), but was departing prior to our reg scheduled flight so they put us on standby. No doubt the crew was also columbus based and eager to get home...as they did. Couldn’t be more pleased to get home"
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and was too late to make connection. Had to rebook and now getting home much later than anticipated"
Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"
Pros: "Nothing. From the plane to the awful delay and poor service."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Old plane, no comfort and 6 HOURS DELAYED. Truly disappointed by the airline"
Pros: "Probably the fact that I flew with my friend and both agreed on how bad this airline is."
Cons: "This is my first time with the airline. It’s safe to say I’ll wont be booking with American Airlines again in the future. The crew members were rude, unattentive and just bitter. It started with simply boarding. The lady at the desk was rude about telling me I needed to consolidate my bags. I ended up just checking the carry-on in. We asked one crew member on board if we could throw our trash away and she just seems annoyed. We also asked for ear buds and she never arrived with them simply stating they will offer/hand them out after they come around. She just seemed like she hates her job. Just terrible attitudes. very unpleasant flight."
Pros: "No issues boarding and arrived at the destination a little bit early so I easily made my connecting flight"
Cons: "Flight itself was a little rough at times but what can be done about that?"
Pros: "New aircraft with good entertainment system. Did not crash."
Cons: "Very tight seat spacing in pitch and width. Screen did not tilt so even with the very minimal backrest recline viewing was not ideal. This was to "punish" me for not buying the various seating upcharges American tag onto the ticket price. It was a low cost ticket on a very convenient transatlantic flight from RDU, "Easyjet" pricing brings "Easyjet" seating. I have flow a lot, 3MM miles on UA alone, and this reminded me why AA did not get much of my business! I will have to revert to the "Continentalised" UA (another sore point!)."
Pros: "Entertainment aspect of flight was excellent. Good was not bad and staff attentive."
Cons: "Check in was terrible. There was confusion and it was terribly disorganized. I arrived 2 hours before my flight and almost did not make bag drop due to the long line (atleast 50-80 other people in the same situation). Then had to rush through security and the terminal to make boarding. Cleared second passport check to be told when the flight shelf have been taking off that the flight was delayed. I get sick when I fly and it helps to eat and due to all the check in delays I could not eat. So when the flight was delayed for mechanical reasons I wanted to go eat to be told that for the next three hours that I would be stuck I could not leave to walk around get a meal or anything. The communication for the staff was poor and their attempt to keep their customers comfortable was lacking."
Pros: "Flight left late, due to mechanical problems, but managed to arrive only a few minutes late"
Cons: "No food available, even though flight departed at noon"
Cons: "Seating ---- to tight"
Cons: "We booked a BA flight from Pittsburgh to Glasgow, through Philadelphia. We intentionally chose BA because we anticipated good service. We later learned that the flight was serviced by American. Our original flight was delayed one day because we missed our connection due to weather on the East Coast (after six hours at the airport). American re-ticketed us for a flight the next day. After several misstarts in Pittsburgh, we arrived in Philadelphia with minutes to spare. After running to the gate, we were then greeted with what turned out to be a four hour delay. Then, upon return, we learned that our seat selections/priority boardings were all deleted because of the re-ticketing on the on the flight out, and we spent hours on the phone and at the airport trying to get things sorted out and ensure that we had a return flight. One of the worst trips ever in my experience."
Pros: "The crew was professional and very accommodating."
Cons: "Cramped quarters."
Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"
Pros: "When we printed out our boarding passes the two seats that we bought were not listed. The agent at the boarding gate was awesome and got us two seats together. The flight was smooth and the flight crew was very good."
Cons: "The time allotted between flights was too short."
Pros: "Food. There was dinner (and wine) and breakfast. Check-in was quick, flight departure was on time."
Pros: "On time and no lost bags"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bin"
Pros: "Very fast, efficient boarding."
Cons: "Entertainment options were excellent although the screen did not work very well (touch screen not super responsive) so I could not get to them easily. Neighbor had the same problem too"
Pros: "Newer Aircraft had a little more legroom than I have seen in the past. Complimentary entertainment was excellent. It made the time on the ground and in the air go by quickly (even on this short flight)."
Cons: "Time on the ground waiting for takeoff. We spent more time on the ground than in the air. But that is more the congestion at the airport than the airline."
Pros: "The crew was friendly There was a bit more legroom than usual"
Cons: "There was a 2+ hour delay We had to upgrade just to get two seats together but found that the plane was not full when we boarded. I could have saved about $50.00"
Pros: "Excellent for a short flight. Good entertainment and a smooth ride."
Pros: "When I arrived in Orlando, Luis Camacho assisted me the entire time and was incredibly helpful. He was able to get me on a flight to Chicago from Orlando without having to get on a bus."
Cons: "The captain of flight LA 2514 deciding he was just done flying."
Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time."
Cons: "Nothing really. A very typical flight."
Cons: "Gate changes were confusing. Staff unprepared and upset with customers. I witnessed a gate agent yelling at customers and slamming phones down."
Pros: "Nothing. Again, super old plane, no screens, no movies, zero effort."
Cons: "I got tricked into spending $80 for a seat with legroom. I'm 6'6" there is zero compassion and/or understanding for being a tall person. That's fine, I'll pay more. But then I was sat in a 'special' section, the only 2 seats that are narrower than a regular seat. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do. 5 1/2 hours and I spent half the time standing up to avoid serious cramps. As a tall person I am literally getting phased out of airline seats. My knee to hip length prevents me from sitting in some seats. No one cares."
Pros: "The flight got me to my destination."
Cons: "Unprofessional flight attendants, who bickered at each other AND at passengers. flight was late took forever for bags to hit the carousel terrible food"
Pros: "Small seats, no consideration for disabled travelers. Pretzels suck. One 30 min tv show on 2.5 hour flight. No bathroom for handicap. Cheap airfare is the only reason I fly American. One attendant asked me, with attitude, if I was going to get off the plane...before realizing I can't physically walk. Her face turned white as a ghost when she realized what she had said and how she had said it."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a smooth flight, my row was totally empty, which enabled me to pass out like a little baby. I forgot that I was on an airplane and not an air mattress. Kudos to the pilot!"
Cons: "Eddie Murphy wasn't on my flight"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Pros: "Crew was very nice ."
Pros: "Great flight easy boarding, friendly staff. Had a very satisfactory travel."
Cons: "If I had not contacted the airlines myslelf to ensure that the second leg was still intact and i was still supposed to board, they would have canceled this leg of the trip as well. Because i drove to JFK, nyslelf on that day to make it for this leg. Luckily a friend had told me to contact the airline directly about this, otherwise BA would have canceled it since i did not come vie first leg of the trip. No one from Kayak told me to do this."
Cons: "The plane was delayed over an hour."
