Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The touchscreen was so buggy and unresponsive that I opted to sleep instead of trying to find something to watch on it."
Pros: "Great crew, especially on a long-haul flight. Decent food, considering how many people they were serving. Best bathrooms I have ever experienced on a large plane."
Cons: "Legroom, legroom, legroom!! If we are to be treated as sardines, at least pack us in oil. It gets worse every time we fly. Crew agreed; the airlines need to be put on notice. It makes their job impossible."

Cons: "Food and rounds for drinks"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and we were pleasantly surprised to be fed something on the short flight!"
Cons: "Although it was a 4 hour layover, it took almost 3 hours before we saw where our gate was for the flight."
Pros: "Nothing really of note. The plane was pretty basic and unexxceptional, but that was expected for the price."
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: "Service was excellent, food was good, everyone was friendly and nice."
Cons: "Everything was OK."
Cons: "I feel like no one has responded to any of my complaints. We were re routed twice and left with no where to sleep, missing work, and paying a bunch of extra for cars to and from airport. My friend was refunded and I have yet to receive one response even though we flew and bought our tickets together."
Pros: "Very explanatory clear and responsive. There was a short delay they kept us informed clearly and responsibly. Excellent flight and superb performance. Very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Not a lot of newer movies"
Pros: "Flight attendants and flight crew knew their jobs."
Cons: "Evacuating Concourse Z. Absolutely no announcements on what to do or expect when the security threat was resolved. Awful procedure for getting through security scanning the SECOND time."
Pros: "Was a very smooth trip."
Cons: "The seat rows were so crammed together, you could hardly get out of your row."
Pros: "Crew. Clean restrooms."
Cons: "Not being able to pick seating until 23 hours before the flight. A huge plane for first and business class. Economy left with uncomfortable seats, no legroom whatsoever and I am only 5’. Food was awful. Extra long walk in Frankfurt to baggage."
Pros: "I thought the new plane was wonderful. The flight attendant was great and professional."
Cons: "I flew with Lufthansa about two years ago and the food was soooo much better. The food on this trip was very distasteful."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, minimal leg room, mediocre food."
Pros: "Everything was great overall. Flight wasn’t full, so I had some nice extra space for the long flight."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for two hours before take-off due to snow and ice. The flight itself was fine. Deplaning in Shanghai sucks. Economy class had to wait inside the plane while business class was let out and shuttled first because the plane parked out away from building and we had to walk down steep stairs and then ride a shuttle bus to the building."
Pros: "Overall good service, only complain is the business class seats."
Cons: "business class seat would have been better"
Pros: "I usually love flying Lufthansa - my favourite by far. It usually out-classes emirates in the economy class, and they usually appreciate the destination (in this case, Saudi Arabia - serving beer and other alcohol regularly). This time, on LH 598, they were suboptimal. The service was OK but I felt judged for asking for beer throughout the flight. The food was bland and the speed of service was “ok” at best. There were some good things - Warsteiner is an amazing beverage. When the attendents did approach, they were generally nice. Additionally, the entertainment package was reasonably good. I usually have to decide between emirates, QA, and Lufthansa. I would still say Lufthansa, but a note to them: please don’t let it slip. You’re a solid carrier and you have great service."
Cons: "-speed of service -feeling judged for having beers -one rude flight attendant -suboptimal food"
Cons: "Passenger behind me was kicking my seat. I called on flight attendant to resolve situation and they could not care less to resolve issue.instead asked me to move.my 6 year old son who was flying with me was terrified of the man that was kicking my seat."
Pros: "Good service. Multiple languages."
Cons: "Lights were on too much. No time to sleep."
Pros: "Individual screens for all seats with a varied selection of entertainment options. Plenty of room under the seat for my carry-on. (It helped that no one was in the seat next to me.) Beverages were offered frequently. Smooth flight, smooth landing."
Cons: "The food is not tasty"
Pros: "Baggage handling, efficiency overall"
Cons: "Small legroom in economy"
Pros: "The food,Entertainment,was good boarding was awfull changed the terminal 2 times 55-60 min late, one of the crew member was rude."

Pros: "Borading Flights on time Crew Confort was just ok."
Cons: "Food. Very bad. Tasteless. And not much food provided. Emirates have more dishes and many servings. ENtertainment: Not many regiional movies. Overall movies are very few."
Cons: "This was an Air Canada flight. Time in line to check baggage in Frankfurt was 2+ hours, baggage was lost but arrived the next day at our destination. Unable to check-in online ahead of time for unknown reasons. Overall the Air Canada ground experience was pretty bad, but the crew/meals/entertainment was good."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Very late, rebooked to 8 hours later but told to try standby 3 hours later, hold up all my time and person who picked me up's time. He even had to drive back and forth between home and airport twice each time took him 3hours"
Pros: "All great"
Cons: "This was a very tight confection. When selling international connections the layover needs to allow enough time to exit the plane, cross a huge airport and go through passport control. Boarding starts early and this connection was barely enough time."
Pros: "Top notch in-flight entertainment. Chicken meal was not bad. Friendly crew"
Cons: "These flights in and out of Newark have the tightest leg room I've been on. I feel bad for tall passengers. The boarding gate from Düsseldorf was way too crowded."
Cons: "It took too long to drop by luggage. Some of the crew wasn't friendly."
Pros: "As always, Lufthansa provides a great flight experience. Attentive crew, clean seats, and good leg room. Will fly Lufthansa again and again."
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as last year. Not bad, just not as good."
Pros: "Everything was great, the entertainment, comfortable and the staff was really kind"
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest, but I understand that it's difficult on airplanes so can't complain too much"
Pros: "The people in the crew were very nice"
Cons: "The two seats that I paid for were the worst seats I've ever had in a plane They were the back two seats of the plane they were so small you should not have them there. I am a small person I had no room my wife is small she had no room. When the seat in front of me laid-back it almost hit my chest."
Pros: "Having own TV moniter and many options for entertainment. The meals were good and staff friendly."
Cons: "Every seat was taken and the flight was cramped. But the plane was configured so you could get up and walk around every few hours."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Pilot told us we would arrive on time anyway, but we were very late and our luggage did not make the connecting flight."
Cons: "Too cold"
Pros: "Crew, food and enterteintment were good"
Cons: "Boarding was to messy, sits were extremely tight, cabin was too warm and sits does not reclined enough to make a comfortable sleep time"
Pros: "I love the Service the attender provided"
Pros: "No organisation at boarding. Allocated back seats.. Pokey"
Pros: "There was no legroom, the sandwiches is missing (not available at all)"
Cons: "Onboarding was like for animalls. After we pass throug the gates, were sticked into the tunnel for 15-20 min in hot air..."
Cons: "Delays and missed bus"
Pros: "that it wasn't a long flight"
Cons: "the crew weren't very friendly, from checking in to landing. too stressed out I think. I wasn't made to feel like I wanted to have a return booking. Also there was pressure to add extras that I didn't want. I resisted but when I've paid for something I don't expect to be coerced into paying more for something I didn't need. For example seat selection."
Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Pros: "not a lot"
Cons: "I paid for extra legroom in row 2?There isn't any and to radd insult to injury the person next to me had been allocated his seat without paying any more than the basic fare.I spent most of the flight in a vacant standard seat which gave me more leg room than than that which I had paid for.It was a total ripoff."
Pros: "The staff was very kind"
Cons: "Ryanair could do lots of things better."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful,and our seat confortable,the food and dring very good"
Cons: "The plane being on time, we got to the departure lounge ready to board only to be told there was a technical fault. They knew the plane had a fault, could have notified us sooner. Once on board we were delayed a further half an hour at no time were there any apologies or explanation."
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "Check in was mad"
Cons: "We are a family with a three year old and have been separated by the allocation system."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "i' sat in row 10 with aspare seat next to me, my wife is in row 32 with 2 empty seat s next to her.Otherwise all good."
Cons: "I arrive 2 hours before flight only to be told I must print out my boarding pass BEFORE I get to airport ! I was charge 55 English pounds for me and for my wife 110 pounds, ! ? what a surprise, I do not like this at all. angry bitter pissed off"
Pros: "Nothing to like, the flight was delayed over 5 hours."
Cons: "No communication as to what our options were, stuck at the airport for 7+ hours while on holiday. Absolutely horrendous. Then finally after all this time, seats don't move a centimeter and they are extremely tight with minimal spacing between rows."
Cons: "We booked our daughter priority so she was entitled to bring a hand carry on board. When she got the airport they insisted that she had to put her hand carry in the hold despite it having her passport in it!! The Captain very kindly helped her retrieve it from the hold at the end of the flight but why did she ever have to put it in there when she was priority and we paid for it?"
Pros: "Loved priority boarding with 2 bags, very smooth. Left on time, arrived early. Comfortable enough for a 1-hour flight."
Cons: "Website said we must get boarding passes stamped or we wouldn’t be allowed on flight, and we wasted time waiting in line at check-in desk only to find out we didn’t need to get a stamp after all. The constant ads were annoying of course."
Pros: "I like nothing about Ryanair"
Cons: "I read their policy about checking bags four times to make sure I understood. The check in staff was rude and treated me like I was stupid. About half the people in line to check in also had to go to another line to pay the fee to check a bag, and go back in line to check in for the flight. Boarding was a disaster. The inflight service was them asking you to buy perfume. Not worth the cheap ticket - at all!"
Pros: "Only option available at the time. I would not have flown Ryanair if there had been any other airline flying the route in the time slot. Actual flight was fine, but the process from booking the flight to gettin aboard was horrible."
Cons: "Rayanair made the transaction as difficult, uncertain and unpleasant as they could. From the moment the booking was complete, a series of email demands, warnings and impossible conditions ensured that it was never clear whether we and our baggage would get on the flight. The initial price was unreasonably low and the eventual cost was twice what was quoted but it had to be paid as a series of penalties over several days. The contract staff in Athens were clearly demoralized, embarrassed and apolgetic, but had no flexibility to resolve issues in a reasonable way."
Pros: "Straight forward flight"
Cons: "Having to pay for my family to sit together, this could have been offered with the automatic seating allocation, there were lots of 4 seats together . It seems that you are intentionally separated so that you pay to change."
Cons: "Bumpy Landing! Very expensive for a very basic service"
Pros: "5 stars all great"
Cons: "Tea was awful, too hot in plane at the begining."
Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "Late notification of cancelled flights. Ryan airs disregard to the impact to people's lives"
Cons: "Uncomfortable, no leg or arm room especially when sat next to people who are too big for their seats!"
Pros: "flight attendant was nice"
Cons: "hidden fees, unfair pricing on baggage, not the most organized airline service as well."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Delayed again!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Ryanair's new random allocation for the seats is a joke. They are trying to make the most money off their passengers. I've flown with them for the past 5+ years and this is the first time I've encountered this nonsense."
Cons: "Due to a malfunction on our previous flight's plane which resulted in a 3hr delay, we missed our connection flight on RyanAir. They didn't accommodate us at all and we had to purchase a whole new flight, that departed 10hrs later but couldn't check in for 8 hours to get past security. So we had to just hang out at Athens Airport for 8hrs with all our luggage and minimal services after traveling for 15hrs."
Pros: "Nice crew and good informations flow"
Cons: "Had to wait outside for boarding. No pocket on seats."
Cons: "I was charged 62 eu for my carry on. It was about 1in to tall."
Pros: "The baggage didn't take forever like arrival in Athens did"
Cons: "Flight took off and landed late"
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "We never got the email that we had to check in. As a consequence my wife and I had to pay for our tickets again."
Cons: "to Whom it may concern. hope all is well, i was so disappointed to be charged 198 euros for the simple reason that I didn't check in and didn't add baggage. I can understand that this is a way to make money out of it but it was too much for it. I was okey about it until I went on the plane and had the cabin crew rushing at me preventing me to stand up to pick my phone from the locker above me for the reason that she's giving instructions... she had a good reason but after she finished it I tried to get up knowing that the flight was delayed for 35 minutes and still she didn't let me stand thought other people behind her where getting up... and she insisted to open my camera bag and get me the phone out of it rather then just giving me the bag, she smiled in a sarcastic way at the end... I asked her to put the camera bag next to my hand bag but she's didn't want to listen and she wanted to put it where she wants... not to mention the very bumpy landing and very fast he was almost run out of the runway, it was scary. I hope you'll read this thought u asked for my opinion Best g"
Pros: "Was what I expected."
Cons: "The number of people who choose to keep going up and down the aisles and not sit in their seat. Pay to sit next to your friend if you are that bothered. Made the hostesses job much harder to serve drinks quickly as had to keep moving back and forth to accommodate people walking by"
Pros: "Ease of booking, checking in and boarding."
Cons: "Nothing on this trip."
Cons: "Charged €62 each for "not checking in online 4 hours or more before" when i thought I had checked in the night before via the email I received"
Pros: "Lovely new plane lots of room"
Cons: "Bumpy landing"
Cons: "The announcements over the PA system are garbled. I challenge you to sit in the body of the Plane and compare the diction on the Security announcement to that of Pilots/Cabin Crew This is particularly relevant when the Pilot recommends passengers to keep their belts fastened during flights. Cabin Crew fail on repetitive announcements -such as food service. It is almost like a race to see can they beat a time set by a previous Crew member on the flight out!!"
Cons: "I asked to have my ticket moved up two days which it was for a flight that wasn't full and was flying out in a hour but instead of using me to fill a seat and use my old ticket to sell they charged me a fee to change the date which was more than I originally paid for the first ticket then I had to pay for baggage wasn't included in my ticket like other airlines do. I was not the only one another guy at the counter was being charged extra for something stupid. He also stated he would not be doing business with Ryan Air again. I also will not recommend them to anyone. My flight was an hour late departing and we never were told why when I asked I was told don't worry about it in a very rude tone by the Flight attendant. During the flight it was more like a sales pitch over and over being asked if we wanted to buy refreshments instead of them being provided like other airlines. They also tried to sell me make up and perfume lastly they bothered us about donating to charities. It was a 1020pm-1120pm flight I would of loved to sleep or relax with it being so late not be hounded for money."
Pros: "The price of the ticket."
Cons: "Everything else. The seats were the smallest I've flown in a very long time. The boarding process was chaos. The flight attendants spent more time trying to sell us perfume than they did providing any type of service, such as a beverage service. In fact, they charged money for beverages (a lot too!), as well as pretty much every other aspect of the flight experience. How does it make any sense to charge you money for checking in for your flight at the airport if you have to visit the check in counter either way? Really crappy airline, I would only fly them or recommend them to someone who is also trying to pinch pennies wherever they can."
Pros: "The food was decent and there was certainly enough"
Cons: "The make flight attendant physically pushed me down the isle and told me to move because he was frantic about getting trash picked up. So so rude"
Cons: "The airline ticket desk where we check in at the airport staff was extremely rude. They insisted that we must check-in online before the day of our flight, which we were not aware of or informed about this procedure. They then charged me $400 penalty fee for not checking in online prior to the flight (despite that I was not aware of this procedure). The airline ticket check in staff was extremely mean and rude with long lines of people waiting and almost missing their flights."
Cons: "Chair does not decline"
Pros: "The staff was helpful, I was not stressed out about couple of kilos overweight for luggage. On return they checked in my carry on free of charge. Flights were on time, efficient and no unnecesary delays. The overhead speaker was only so loud it would hurt my ears. Thank you!"
Cons: "The overhead speaker painfully loud."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Extremely poor organization at the airport checkin kiosk. Not enough staff. Huge lack in instructions and assistance. No proper lines at all. Tickets are cheap but one piece of luggage to check in is very expensive. Can't even get a cup of water for free on the flight. It may be a low fare, but the stressful experience is absolutely not worth it. Will never fly them again."
Cons: "Everything. They charge to print out the tickets. It's insane. I will never fly them again."
Pros: "Everything ran on time and the crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The person driving the bus from gate to plane was somewhat reckless and made us uneasy. Otherwise all was great."
Cons: "Problems with securing printed boarding passes (non EU) as could not print them ourselves at motel. Finally able to get them without charge after protest. Problem paying for checked bag online (did not go thru) so had to pay higher fee at airport. All this caused delay and rush to not miss flight. Not familiar with Ryan Air M.O. Not informed till 2 days before flight of online check in requirements. Not told could check in 30 days ahead-so could not print passes at home in US before travel. Did not know would have to enter and exit plane via stairs with large carry-on. Ryan Air should be more up front about extra charges incurred if you don't follow their protocol-esp. for first time users. Now know and will not fly with them again. Ended up costing as much or more than flying Aer Lingus Bristol to Dublin would have."
