Late boarding. Late take off. Late landing.
The delayed flight from Montreal was horrible, I know it was air Canada operated that flight but no gate open to be able to sit ,for 4 hours to wait after 2 flights and long hours. I will never flight with 2 layover and especially trough Montreal. Airport in Munich was the only civilized. Check in in Heraklion was also very slow and disappointed.
It was easy to board and store out baggage. The plain seemed old and was not comfortable. There was a couple of unhappy staff who worked on the plane. They also didn’t have our stroller as we exited the plane. They said they didn’t have one. We stood for 1 hour and 1/2 at baggage for it to appear. We checked zero bags to avoid this process.
Horrible customer service.
Pros: "The crew was very helpful, gong out of their way as even bringing me camomile tea. It was lukewarm, it it’s the thought that counts."
Cons: "The seats were way too tiny on this giant airbus, even for me and my daughter-in-law who are both under 5 feet and under 100 lbs. te flight was torture. Food also was not as good as previous Lufthansa fare."
Cons: "I was stranded in Dublin after being rerouted by Lufthansa and they were no help at all"
Pros: "Crew AMAZING nice people very hospitable the food was good, very respectable staff accommodations nice"
Cons: "The seat in the back was very uncomfortable to sleep other than that amazing"

Pros: "The seats were appropriately spaced for leg room. The food was simple yet palatable"
Pros: "almost hrly refreshments courteous crew calm demeanor"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "1. There was no beverage service before the meal - that's new to me (travelled 4x around the globe, mostly with LH 2. It took 3 people to open the meal seal with the plastic knife ... 3. You need a written contact with your neighbor about the foot placement - space is so narrow, you need to take turns if you would like to come off the plane without back injuries 4. New custom: serve coffee AFTER breakfast 5. Nobody walked around with water or juice between the meals - you had to wake your neighbor since climbing over someone is no longer possible [either] 6. If you have 2 beverages on your tray and your neighbor needs to get out, you need a third person to assist (impossible to get out of your seat with 2 beverages in your hands (we tried it!) - just too narrow (even for a European Teenager) 7. It was not clearly visible who boards where. An Economy couple standing patiently in line at the Wong boarding line was sent back to the end of the long economy line - although NOBODY was in the business line"
Pros: "Was not allowed on flight"
Cons: "When I missed the connection from the first leg of my flight and purchased the ticket from that leg to finish my itinerary, Lufthansa cancelled ALL of my return tickets. Both Lufthansa and my travel agency pointed the finger at the other and I had to purchase another $1000 ticket to get home. There was no cancellation emails or any notification. I didn’t know my tixkets were cancelled until I was trying to check in. Worst experience ever!!"
Pros: "I enjoy that their planes have more space, the food is delicious, and their caring and kind attitudes all through the experience!"
Cons: "delayed boarding then waited three hours after we boarded for deicing. The piolet and crew did not update us. Made the flight very long."
Pros: "W we’re a few minutes late and they waited for us. We truly appreciate their cooperation. 5 strat services."
Pros: "I loved flying with Lufthansa , amazing airline"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Flight left on time"
Cons: "The flight took off 2 hours late they must have known it was going to be that late, yet they lied saying that it was on time, forcing you to come to the airport early, then when you get to the airport they did the - oh its going to be 20 minutes late, no 40, no 1.5 hours late, heck it will be 2 hours late etc. Micro-tight seat pitch - I could barely sit in the seats."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great, The plane was very clean and the bathrooms was HUGE!"
Cons: "uncomfortable seat, off set from the seat in front of me so my entertainment screen was at an odd angle to watch. Food was ok but they had a sauce on the chicken that was not very appetizing. It actually made my wife sick and lets just say she did not keep her dinner. Also, I asked for a scotch after take off and it was a small shot and after dinner I asked for another and it was just a whisper. It did not even cover one ice cube. It would have been nice to get at least a full shot."
Cons: "More variety in entertainment would be good;"
Cons: "Me starting to get sick!"
Cons: "waited before takeoff, didn't go to right terminal, waited on tarmac for 40 minutes for steps, bags still no on carousel , lost bags....almost missed connection. overall poor experience."
Pros: "This is the first time I actually enjoyed a meal on a flight. It was ravioli in tomato sauce, just perfect! Superfriendly cabin crew"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and caring. The food was great. Very enjoyable trip!!"
Cons: "Was delayed in a connection and missed flight. No offer or help provided to get me and children on another flight without charging me ~$9000 for another flight. Paid out of pocket for another airline. Cannot believe the extortion and lack of service provided!"
Cons: "Regular economy felt a little cramped."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean. The service was great. Food was OK. I enjoyed the wine service. Lots of movie choices. HOW does one get "bumped up" to Premium Economy?"
Cons: "The seats in Economy were the most uncomfortable I have ever sat in for such a long time nine and a half hours. All six of us found them to be uncomfortable. No seat bottom cushioning. I had a back pain. Boarding started with the First Class and Business Class first. It took an additional 20 minutes for Economy class to start boarding. The line was very, very long and interfered with other travelers in the airport terminal. "boarding area to Frankfurt was cramped" When we arrived in Denver, only five Custom Agents were on duty to process our arrival passports, although there are 14 control stations at Denver. It appeared as though the Custom Agents were not aware of the arrival of the Lufthansa 747 nor the one that followed. All other Custom in Europe were much more efficient and move people through quickly. What a bad first impress made by the USA Customs people."
Pros: "Good food, friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Boarding process was torture. Lufthansa invited us to check-in early, but would not allow us to finish the check-in online process the day prior: seemed to be glitch in their computer system. We arrived at the airport early, but no one at Lufthansa could help us with seat assignments in order to seat our 12-yo daughter next to a partent. The airline did not open the gate area until 1+35 prior to the flight (advertised 2-hrs prior), and did not put anyone at the gate-desk until 1-hr prior to departure ...and they still could not help us. Boarding was disorganized; Lufthansa appeared to board by different groups, but there were no announcements as to which group(s) should board. Instead there was just a large crowd milling about, waiting to push their way to a gate agent. Very un-German."
Cons: "Delayed taking off due to airport queue."
Pros: "Excellent service with pleasant, efficient staff. Special vegetarian diet needs met."
Cons: "Delays in Nice led to a narrow window for connection. More than ten people were left behind - doors practically closed in our faces - and Lufthansa was wholly unhelpful in rescheduling flights. Lines to speak with agents were absurd and then attendants had to take breaks instead of resolve issues. There were no solutions offered, only poor communication and an unwillingness to accommodate a significant number of customers who were inconvenienced. Finally, a "random inspection" led to a handful of passengers being surveyed by the German local police. Interestingly, a number of us were Hispanic Americans. The whole experience was extremely negative."
Pros: "The after dinner cognac was nice."
Pros: "Lufthansa took great care of my two cats transport abroad. They went overboard in my estimation and along with partner Adria Airways I couldn't be more grateful,and so are the kitties, for the wonderful care. ."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great"
Cons: "Everything was good only scary part was when we where about to land the plane suddenly took off again it took everyone by surprise and we had to circle back around again."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped in economy. A big factor on a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "No communication"
Cons: "Unhelpful and now luggage has been lost going on 3 days in same clothes"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment was slightly inadequate."
Cons: "Long lines at security check before the gate. Our luggage was lost"
Pros: "The flight crew was wonderful! Friendly and really attentive the whole trip!"
Pros: "My coach seat on the upper deck was roomy thanks to the window cubbies on the A380. The flght attendants were friendly and very helpful. The A380's upper deck is noticably quieter. I throughly enjoyed flying on the A380. The food was also the best airplane food I've had."
Pros: "The entertainment was great, service, comfort and food too."
Cons: "Choice of quality films could have been better."
