Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "It was good enough."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "The first leg to Frankfurt was 6 hours late. Missed connection, missed next possible connection, and waiting in line to try to get last possible flight out. Everyone's schedule has been turned upside down."
Cons: "Connection time unacceptable with delay in departure from London"
Cons: "The workers at Lufthansa can learn to communicate with one another so that people don’t miss their flights. First flight stayed on the runway for an hour with no explanation for the delay. This caused us to miss our connecting flight, which clearly could have been avoided. Pathetic professionalism."
Pros: "Great crew and all were pleasant and attentive. Best airline I have flown."
Cons: "Retrieval of my luggage in Boston took over 45 minutes. What good is it having Global Entry when other passengers behind me in Customs are getting their bags first?!?!?! Make good on my inconvenience Luftwaff."
Pros: "Food was great!"
Cons: "With a short layover and a bit of a delay coming from Seattle, I rushed through immigration and security and ran to my next gate. Even though I arrived at the gate two minutes before the scheduled departure time, the plane had already left the gate. VERY disappointing and will probably be the last time I fly Lufthansa, especially through Frankfurt."
Pros: "Fast check in and politeness"
Cons: "Not comfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew and food were nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 60 minutes"
Cons: "Tras pasar por la máquina con la tarjeta de embarque una azafata de tierra dijo que no podía pasar alegando que mi maleta de mano espesaba demasiado sin fijarse que ya había sido pesado con etiqueta de ‘cabin baggage por la aerolínea. Luego al preguntar si estaba asegurado dijo que sí pero no sabía por cuanto. Los compartimentos encima de mi asiento no estaban llenos. El avión aterrizó tarde. Las azafatas de vuelo profesionales."
Cons: "Lost my luggage . I am in Madrid with no luggage."
Pros: "Nothing really. KLM or LOT are way better."
Cons: "Get your own food or you will stay hungry. 12 hours flight with 2 crappy meals served with no option of getting anything else except candy bars or pretzels."
Pros: "Loved the service both flying to and from Europe. Enjoyed the free inflight entertainment, blanket and pillow, and meals/snacks we were given."
Cons: "Again the ease of getting boarding passes for all travelers."

Pros: "Everything was on time; boarding was very fast and smooth; flight attendance very friendly and resolute. I have food 4 stars because I didn't try it."
Pros: "My flight from Budapest took off hour later then scheduled. We landed in Munich only ten minutes before the international flight's take off to San Francisco. Upon the Munich landing, eight of us were escorted on a special bus, with a special pass controll and on special routs to make sure we get on the plane on time. Our laggage managed to get on the same plane as well. Thank you Lufthansa!"
Pros: "We left on time"
Cons: "Tight legs space"
Pros: "Lufthansa is amazing!"
Cons: "Website is very difficult to navigate and use."
Cons: "AS ALWAYS, LEG ROOM IS an issue on international flights. Screaming children kicking my seat the whole trip makes for an uncomfortable ride. Movies were slow to load and cut off multiple times for no reason."
Cons: "My wife has an I797 document. Lufthansa didn't recognize it and I had to book her a business class flight on Qatar airways."

Cons: "Was told to check in at wrong desk by databoard. This caused delay..."
Pros: "The flight was punctual and smooth, maun concern!"
Cons: "no tv, no papers, food soso"

Pros: "Comortable seats, great service, combined with good food and entertainment made for an enjoyable flight"
Cons: "The boarding process was poorly executed"
Pros: "Ample leg room and comfortable seats."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hrs"
Cons: "Where to begin? During the booking process, there was no indication my travel partner and I would be flying Air Canada, and not Lufthansa. We were seated in the last row of the plane with painfully little legroom — even for two women of relatively small stature. The plane was not equipped with modern conveniences of operational wifi, music, or any other means of entertainment over the ten-hour flight. We were nearly an hour late to depart, but were unable to hear anything over the speakers regarding the cause for the delay, nor could we hear any of the flight attendants' safety instructions. What we could hear, however, was the surprisingly loud and nearly constant DINNNGGGG of the passengers' call buttons as they summoned the flight attendants. Because the flight was an overnighter, we attempted to sleep, but it was nearly impossible to do so due to the noise. I had earplugs in and could still hear the chimes, which were positioned right above our seats and made for an unpleasant experience and cranky travelers. The food was subpar as expected, but it would've been nice to be surprised with something resembling a fresh piece of fruit or vegetable. The flight crew was polite and one of the attendants took pity on us and offered a complimentary shot of whiskey, which partially alleviated the discomfort of the experience. That man is a saint and we surely hope he is better taken care of by this airline than we were. Overall a miserable experience. Will definitely rethink flying both Lufthansa and Air Canada in the future."
Cons: "That I can't fly them all the time."
Pros: "The crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "We waited over an hour for two people to board the plane. After we waited, the couple didn't make it past security; so, we had to wait another 20 minutes for the company to take their luggage off of the plane. I was late checking into my hotel, which was in the process of being canceled."
Cons: "Ridiing buses on tarmac to get to the plane."
Pros: "Food. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding by row would have been better. All of economy boarded at the same time."
Pros: "all are O.k"
Pros: "Food choices were excellent. Crew was attentive."
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)."
Cons: "No entertainment Slow boarding"
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: "Check-in was easy and boarding was efficient"
Cons: "WiFi connection and thereby any information and entertainment did not work. Long wait for luggage."
Pros: "It’s not everyday that you get a meal for free on an airline in addition to friendly service. Even though the flight was 7 hours, it was a smooth and enjoyable one."
Cons: "There’s not enough leg room & no food other than pretzels"
Pros: "Extra legroom but I paid for that"
Cons: "Not getting the meal I prepaid for and the curtain of business class constantly hitting me it was not good."
Cons: "Took an hour to de-ice. The snow was forecasted. I understand it's the airport operations, not airline, but there should be a better way."
Pros: "Pretty smooth flight overall. That being said, I don’t mean nd turbulence, the air pockets really get to me. Great service though"
Pros: "Exceptional service and staff"
Cons: "Food isn't usually this subpar."
Pros: "The flights are fine, on time."
Pros: "Great service- friendly patient helpful, pilots that kept passengers updated and very reassuring and confident sounding. KAYAK got me perfect seats!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t spectacular, and being limited to credit card purchasing is always a problem for many travellers. Pre-purchasing options are a great option except for last minute wishes."
Pros: "No surprises."
Cons: "5h travel at noon, no meal, this is a bit cheap."
Pros: "Crew are very nice and approachable. No complain about their service. And flight is on time."

Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "Great crew members. Helpful and welcoming!"
Cons: "Like last year we had long delays going and returning from Toronto to Madrid. Breakfast was also not has good. We only got a slice of banana bread. Not enough choices and quality."

Cons: "I missed the flight"
Cons: "No breakfast offered for a four hour flight"
Pros: "The crew was inviting, helpful, and very kind."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. No WIFI on the plane (which was, admittedly disclosed upon ticket purchase, so it was no fault of air canada). Chairs were very uncomfortable and the individual in front of me reclined fully for the entire trip."
Cons: "Cancelling flights , lying about reasons why, running away from customers when the flight finally after 10 hours was canceled"
Cons: "Both my flights (there and back) were delayed, my luggage was lost after I was asked to volunteer to check it in and on the delay (YYC to YUL), I wasn't even given a food voucher after being made to wait 8h in the airport. This was AFTER the crew promised they would hold the other flights (also operated by AC)"
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude to every single person that asked for anything on the flight. Even someone asking for a simple glass of water was given attitude. I booked my seats over the phone and they were not the seats they told me they were. Aweful service"
Pros: "The way back there was nobody beside us. Nice to have extra room."
Cons: "On the way back there was only one person in business class. Nobody got bumped up"
Cons: "My flight and itinerary was cancelled due to the booking staff i planned my travel arrangements for to Mexico. They cancelled the round trip flights i had departing from vancouver to mexico and back so i never was able to use this flight to Vancouver and now will just have a credit there until used. can provide a better rating once i am able to use the flight."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the plane. It had comfortable seats and was very roomy. There was complimentary dinner and breakfast service, both of which were delicious."
Cons: "About 80% of my flight consisted of noisy Spanish high-school erst returning from some trip in Canada. They were loud and obnoxious and ruin the peace on the plane. This was an overnight flight and they ruined any chances of falling asleep. The problem came from the fact that the flight attendants could keep them under control. They, in turn, got annoyed and gave generally subpar and unpleasant service."
Pros: "The staff where friendly and easy going, the boarding was also organized and because the flight was really full of you gave the carry on to be checked they allowed you to priority board"
Cons: "The food countinues to be and issue I flew the same airline 2 years ago and the meal options had not changed. The salad was so bland I was certain that I was eating plastic food."
Pros: "Friendly crew Newer airplane (787) On time"
Pros: "The loading was better organized then in the past, so smoother; not as chaotic."
Cons: "No amenities offered other than a free thimble of something to drink. I'm waiting for them to charge for breathable air."
Pros: "Flight was on time. The landing was smooth, not bumpy."
Pros: "Quality of food was pretty mediocre. Of course I am comparing this with airlines like KLM, Emirates or Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "Upon arrival at Madrid we found our suitcase in the checked luggage was badly damaged at two places. Who do we request for damages?"
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours !"
Pros: "It was on-time, left enough time to reach connections and my bag arrived."

Cons: "The plane was very old and delayed for too long. Way overpriced air fares."
Pros: "Everything was really good"
Cons: "Some staff were very personable and some were the opposite."

Cons: "Slow and stupid some of passages"
Pros: "Direct, on time, good on-board service, no hassle, excellent value for money"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment console is pretty good"
Cons: "Departure was 40 minutes delayed right off the bat for reasons unknown and unexplained. Then, worse, mechanical trouble on the tarmack, we had to return to the gate and power down the plane, while still remaining on board, unventilated and unpleasantly sweaty, in the dark even for a while. What should have been a quick 1.5 hour flight and 8:30pm arrival thus became a sweaty 4-hour ordeal and almost 11pm arrival. Not the end of the world, but I was a bit taken aback at the absence of apologetic behaviour, like perhaps serving drinks while we're sweating on the tarmack, or heaven forbid, a meal of some sort considering we were departing later than we should have all already been home."
Cons: "Lack of sleep"
Pros: "On time, good service and reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "Food options limited and quality very poor."
Pros: "AC changed to a different plane for our flight at the last minute, so seat assignments were messed up, and we had paid extra to choose seats. So why pay extra for seating when the airline can put you wherever they want at their discretion. In addition there was a minor delay in take off while the flight deck crew had to re-programmed the avionics to our scheduled route. But we made up the time en route and were only a few minutes late. On the whole, not a bad flight experience, just the usual frustration in the process. I long for the days when flying was a pure pleasure."
Cons: "Crew not overly friendly"
Pros: "Flight was smooth the whole time"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Pros: "The staff was impeccable. Boarding was great. My seat was not comfortable, but what can we say?"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. That was not cool. We had to download the app, but WiFi was not included."
Pros: "The seats are very comfortable."
Cons: "The Newark security people were ridiculously rude. The flight was delayed due to mismanagement of the gates, and yet they yelled as us, the folks standing in line (and not making a ruckus). The flight attendants seemed bored and were inattentive."
Cons: "Cabin felt quite warm"
Cons: "The 5+ hour delay was simply horrible"
Pros: "We had a wheel chair person and they made it very easy to drop off at the gate and get it at the destination gate. Also they drove us over to the baggage area due to many elevation changes required to reach this area."
Cons: "The obtaining of the boarding pass in Newark needed more people to help get the boarding pass. I like the option to use a machine if I want to generate a boarding pass but there were issues with the machines and not enough people to help alleviate the backup of people having to wait."
Cons: "The cabin was very hot."
Pros: "I finally got home! What was supposed to be a 4-5 hour flight took over 12 hours."
Cons: "United Airlines sucks. If you can avoid United Airlines you should. They might seem like a better price but what they don’t tell you is they are going to burn your time and waste your money. They are not accountability for delays or non - delivery of service. Their customer service mantra"
Pros: "Crew was amazing seat are good from Denver to Cincinnati But from Edmonton to Denver seat were tight"
Pros: "20 minutes early landing, despite the weather"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Seats are narrow. Not much shoulder space"
Cons: "My friend and I were forced to check our carry on bags at the gate and the airline lost my friends bag for four days."
Pros: "It was nice and smooth. The crew was great, especially Urere, our stewardess. Comfort and food were good, on par with the nickel diming of airlines."
Cons: "Comfort can be greatly improved."
Pros: "Length of flight"
Cons: "No screen on seat for entertainment"
Pros: "Flight mechanics (checkin, luggage, boarding), in cabin service were allfine."
Cons: "Delayed over 6 hours. United should have made replacement plane available sooner."
Cons: "The onboard wifi was not working."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very welcoming"
Pros: "Good service, being on time or early! Food was good. Keeping it dark for several hours to allow for sleep is good! I would do this flight again hoping for similar experience."
Pros: "Service was nice"
Cons: "It would be nice to get some regular free snacks on board, instead of having to pay for every tiny thing."
Cons: "I thought I was flying Lufthansa but got United which is the worst Airline in my opinion. Delayed 3 hours and poor service."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating and temperature"
Pros: "Plane was delayed 87 minutes because the plane had maintenance issues that the air and did not organize and plan better. For their error, I missed my client and got fired."
Cons: "The airline not getting me on the Dayton-Newark then Newark-Rochester flight so I could get to my destination on time. The agent at the airport was not helping or listening. Now I miss my client loss a lot of money for the day and I got fired."
Pros: "Our flight to Madrid was simple and uncomplicated. The boarding process was flawless, and the flight itself wasn't as full as I expected. My wife and I had three seats in which to spread out."
Cons: "The audio jack in my seat had some kind of short in it. I had to hold the wire to my earbuds in a certain way to hear properly."
Pros: "Easy, convenient and everyone is nice and accommodating. We always get to SFO under an hour"
Pros: "Flight was stuck on tarmac in Denver for 45 minutes. Missed connection Air hostess was very friendly throughout"
Pros: "This was a direct red eye flight to Madrid"
Cons: "I paid 1308$ for the tickets, I wasn't expecting first class experience but honestly I was just shocked. First off the flight attendant was so rude, whenever I asked for something or said thank you she would just stare at me and not respond. I mean I get it, it's a red eye flight I wasn't expecting anyone to be chipper. But honestly that was especially rude having to deal with her for the 6 hour trip to Madrid. Second the food was especially disgusting. The chicken was in this white sauce that looked like discharge and if taste like rubber. The bread was hard to bite into. Everything was so stale and tasted so bad I wondered how long they had that food sitting there. My last trip to Europe I flew Swiss air to Italy they had the best customer service and the food didn't taste like I was eating cardboard in jail. I am never flying united airlines to Europe again. It is too long of a trip for subpar service."
Cons: "They were so late I got on a different airline"
Cons: "Leg room is atrocious. Delayed an hour because of maintenance."
Pros: "The crew on my 2 united flights on me way to Phoenix were extremely professional. One of my flight attendants, Carolyn (from Chicago) was excellent. United is not usually know for its great reviews, but I was very impressed. I will fly United again!"
Pros: "Flight was light in passengers with lots of empty seats in each row. Better immigration/security process in FRANKFURT compared to previous years"
Cons: "Old aircraft, the seats in premium economy are uncomfortable and not as much leg room as other European carriers. Only WiFi entertainment available. Unfortunately my suitcase was broken in and a power supply and a mouse were stolen. Did not discover until I came home ."
Pros: "Quick flight, arrived early to each stop"
Cons: "Seats hurt, head rest don't stay up"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable (for economy), service pleasant, food nothing special but fine, entertainment good. Boarding was efficient; there was a slight delay due to de-icing, but that's normal"
Cons: "It was impossible to download a boarding pass on either Lufthansa's website or any other (code share with United). Lufthansa gives you a number to call but they are open only 9-5 weekdays; when I called their regular office, I listened to a very annoying message routing for 15 minutes before hanging up. They have to work this out better, though I must say that at the United gate I could print it out easily at the machine, and the staff there was exceptionally helpful"
Pros: "I did not like the plane ride. There were way to many things to comment on. Most importantly everyone of my.flights was delayed."
Pros: "Comfort. Economy plus was only $75 at check in. Well worth it for the leg room."
Cons: "They didn't offer pillows for a 4 hour non stop flight. I would have slept much better with a pillow"
Cons: "crying babies & no food"
Pros: "Seat comfort. Crew was much nicer than crew I had out Houston on previous trip."
Cons: "I put 3's on food and entertainment because it wasn't used partially due to availability. I wasn't able to download app and personal headphones ended up being checked due to small plane so couldn't listen to anything. I wasn't partial to food options so didn't get to eat"
Pros: "The Argentinian lady that help us at the counter. She safe us from missing the flight."
Cons: "The long waiting with customs and that the connection were too far away to drop the baggage"
Pros: "The flight crew got us there quickly and safely."
Cons: "Food was sub par but that is about what you can expect from any US carrier, the crew was disorganized and let people move around before taking off making people finding their seats occupied on arrival. Service members were curt and woke us up for some kind of morning snack they call breakfast when my guest and I were clearly asleep and not interested. I really wish this flight was operated by Lufthansa..."
Cons: "I was really upset when I was told at airport that my direct flight was changed to connecting flight. Plus I requested a wheelchair due to medical issues on my hip and I was not provided any wheel chair on Vancouver."
Pros: "Food was pretty tasty and entertainment worked well."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude and seemed annoyed a passenger would even think of asking for assistance."
Cons: "I did not go to Edmonton, and was not notified. They placed me on a non stop from Vancouver to Chicago. It was lucky that I caught the change."
Pros: "The United crew were extremely pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Lufthansa's website was confusing and their agents contradicted one another as we unsuccessfully attempted to reserve seats. No in flight entertainment was available"
Pros: "The crew member was ok."
Cons: "How about getting friendlier staff. The male flight attendants were insanely rude."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather at ohare despite the fact that many other flights were still going. First delayed, sat around for hours, then cancelled almost 3 hours post scheduled departure time. No hotel voucher provided. Rebooked, but not done correctly so when I tried to check in, it was discovered that I didn't actually have a rebooking, requiring additional calls and second rebooking."
Cons: "Displaced to another delayed flight 6 hours in total!!!!! Lost of other connections Send me to Frankfurt and then to Madrid one day after programmed The baggage lost Should reimburse us"
Pros: "Crew were gracious & helpful. Plane left and arrived on time. Frequent offers of beverages."
Cons: "There was no space for legs and feet. Rows are too close together in economy. Only my left foot could extend forward - a metal box was bolted to the floor where a right foot would go. Seatback pockets with magazines, headphones, etc take space that knees require. Then when my front neighbor fully reclined for 7 hours, I was really pinned in (middle seat of center section). It can't be healthy to be physically restricted for so long. Very uncomfortable. Ryanair seats packed this close (for much shorter flights) don't seem to have floor obstruction, and eliminate the pockets and recline features which helps."
