Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Staff was very good"
Cons: "Plane was very warm"
Pros: "Crew, food, and business class pods were super. In fact Lufthansa itself was great BUT read next..."
Cons: "...debarkation at SFO was dismal. The nearest bathroom upon debarking was closed for cleaning. The passport control signs were misleading and confusing (the term "residents" was misused). And there was no one at baggage claim to prevent bags from piling up atop each other on the conveyor. I received a bone bruise trying to get my bag off another one. Avoid SFO as an international destination if you can...horrible airport."
Pros: "Staff was extremely nice and helpful"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Meals and some entertainment"

Pros: "Upgraded seats from PHL to FRA, which was great. Had a lot of legroom. Very nice staff, comfortable flight"
Cons: "Very small legroom from Frankfurt to Budapest. When you are 5’11 it’s hard to fly . The prices i have to pay all the time to upgrade only because I am tall is out of control. It adds hundreds to my flight cost when the prices are already high."
Cons: "My luggage didn’t arrived in Santiago And it was so frustrating start my vacation Here without medicines, winter clothes, Phones cables and chargers etc et I would like to know When I can have my suitcases"
Pros: "Excellent flight attendant in charge of us."

Cons: "The food could be better tobut I was pleased with the service"
Pros: "Our dinner meal was quite good for airline food. After they reset my TV three times, it worked good."
Cons: "The breakfast left a lot to be desired. Leg room was very limited, especially after the person in front of me reclined their seat."
Cons: "The head flight attendant was very brusque with clients/passengers - demanding we hand back trays in a certain way, demanding people do not get up and stand during a 3 hour flight. At one point she rushed along the aisle to the front of the plain, bumping and hurting my shoulder, but did not bother to apologize. In front of me, was a mother with a child with special needs. The mother had to stand up for some time to have the child curl up and lie in a comfortable position - the attendant rudely commanded her to sit down and strap the child to the seat, instead of finding out how they could help. She could have achieved it with a better attitude and choice of words. The crew did not bother beyond the bare minimum - it was painful to observe."
Pros: "Again, nice staff. Clean plane. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The games and the book for the teens did not interest my kids. Not sure how popular those items are. Food-not good at all."
Pros: "The chicken, potatos and spinach dish was the best. I like that they have you a pillow, cover, and headphones."
Cons: "At first the movies worked then they did a reset and my audio stopped working and they did another reset when I let an attendant know about it and it still didn't work. They never came back for me to let them know about the problem."
Pros: "Crew nice. Clean aircraft. Flight smooth, arrived to destination 40 min earlier. Nothing to complain except I wish there was more room for legs . Food okish, coffee / tea were good, tomato juice not good, did not try the wines. Biggest disappointed was the breakfast in quality only carbs : muffin, granola bar and tiny fruit salad where most of the fruit was frozen. But these are small things, overall a very good flight, I will definitely fly again with them. I watched a couple of movies released this year that I wanted to see. Good job Lufthansa!"
Cons: "Waiting to board, outside in the rain while people shuffle slowly onboard and the crew does nothing to speed things up"
Pros: "Even though we boarded the plan via a bus, I appreciated that business class was given priority boarding the bus."
Cons: "The waiting area was a bit spartan, but quite acceptable."
Pros: "My highlight for the travel was the AMAZING flight attendant named JENS. He is a bright soul. Positive, sharp, witty, and humorous. Just what I needed on a 8 hour flight over the Atlantic."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The seats"
Cons: "No entertainment system at all - no movies, no music and no WIFI"
Pros: "Despite the wintry weather, a safe take off and a nice flight. A plus to Otopeni (Bucharest) airport administration - clean runaway, no snow no ice on it."
Cons: "Delay time should be posted accordingly at the gate."
Cons: "I selected seats and when I got on the plane I was moved twice. The seats were very small and uncomfortable. The food was bad."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "The seats in business were spacious and comfortable. The crew was there to meet our every need!"
Cons: "We had to sit in the plane for 2 hours before liftoff because of a hydraulic lift problem"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "-- > Multiple (4) gate changes"
Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable seats on plane. Stayed on time."
Cons: "I didn't like that I bought a bottle of perfume and they let me take it from Israel to Germany without a problem, and as soon as I got to Germany they trashed it saying that it should've been in a sealed bag, so 80$ went to trash or God knows where,,"
Pros: "Spent to much on the bus, bus was crowd. 2 hours delay. Without clear information of the reason."
Cons: "I requested Kosher meal and first time did not get it. I was shocked when I was told that Lufthansa does not serve it on this flight. I am planning to write about it Lufthansa CEO. The airplane was old, one restroom did not function and it was closed. So, the economy class was served by only one restroom for the entire flight which led to long waiting line and discomfort for many passengers."
Pros: "Flight departed 30 minutes late (due to a delay with the inbound flight)but a short flight time enabled the delay to be recovered and we landed in FRA on time. A very long taxi (30 minutes) made connection time for my next flight to be very tight."
Cons: "Why do LH insist on serving the 2nd meal/beverage service in economy class until 50 minutes before the flight lands? I suspect they would argue it allows passengers to have greater rest however in Y class the passengers are awake long before......could I suggest serving the snack earlier as it prevents a very rushed service as trays are collected and cabin secured very near to the actual landing?"
Pros: "Both flights were equally wonderful"
Pros: "Excellent crew & service; enjoyed the special meal selections and the great movie options."
Pros: "Everything is great. The airplane, staff, and their terminal at the airport"
Cons: "I can't find anything bad about me experience with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Yes, Very good"
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Old aircraft. Uncomfortable seats in economy. Entertainment screens old and almost impossible to watch - watched my iPhone! No mobile phone charger."
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Cons: "Boarding was crazy. Could not everyone in the gate area."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Ran out of business class meal. Substituted a Econ class."
Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight on schedule and good entertainment."
Cons: "Space is just reasonable on a long flight, even if there's seats more spacious that you could choose if you pay more."
Cons: "Late departure. Rush to connect."
Pros: "Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Seats not great for such a long flight."
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "great crew and comfortable flight."
Cons: "sceens in the plane to show map and direction of travel"
Cons: "Faultless handling of weather delay, causing missed connection and flight transfer. A well oiled machine, thank you."

Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very professional."
Cons: "Aircraft returned to gate due to fault and was delayed for 45 min."
Pros: "Great service"

Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed a little due to weather as was takeoff. Cant blame them for weather but the connection was very tight."
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff were lovely. Online check was very simple and easy to navigate."
Cons: "The amount of extras you have to click no to while checking in online."
Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."

Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."

I asked the stewardess to move me to places of increased comfort, as my knee was swollen and I could not bend it. The stewardess answered that they have no competence to transfer me to these places."
Cons: "The check in process was confusing as the MIA location required that passengers take luggage to an area away from the ticketing counter, no explanation and almost zero signage. We walked around the airport until we found the location. Truly a horrible experience in MIA. Move to TPA!!"
Cons: "The line to check in at the airport (in both directions) moved at a snails pace. We stood there for literally hours."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "To have entertainment. Choice in food."

Cons: "Junior varsity airline. Food was inedible. I'm only 5'9" but my knees were up against the seat in front of me. And they lost our luggage. Just say no."

Pros: "Every attendant was very kind and willing to help with my lack of Russian language skills"
Pros: "Large, if blockbuster-heavy, movie selection; reasonable food and drink."
Cons: "Aeroflot flights somehow always involve interminable overnight layovers in Sheremetyevo Airport, uniformly cold, overbright and crowded, with WiFi access only for those with Russian phone numbers, a visa required to find a smoking area, only roubles accepted at the cafes, and armrests preventing sleep except on the floor. Aeroflot and Transaero themselves would be reasonably acceptable if they only flew through a different country!"
Cons: "Flight departed late, unclear why."
Pros: "I did like everything, but last year they let us to have 2 luggage's for free, this year it was only 1. That's the main thing we did love on Aeroflot."

Pros: "suprised new planes greatt stafff"
Pros: "Excellent service and staff. They actually fed us 2 meals on the 9 hour flight from Moscow - NYC that left at 2 in the afternoon. Compared to Norwegian who wouldn't even give us sodas if we hadn't paid for the meal service! It reminded me of what it used to be like to fly. Well done, Aeroflot!"
Cons: "They have a very odd size for their carry-on luggage--though the bins are regular size--and will charge you $50 to check an additional bag when the carry on you have that fits every other plane doesn't go in the bin. Check the sizes well and plan accordingly."

Cons: "somewhat messy boarding zone in the airport: two planes were planned to board from one counter at the same time, so that corner of the airport was little overcrowded"
Pros: "Same problem"
Cons: "U guys cancel my flight"

Pros: "Flight left late but landed on time. Otherwise, it was an average experience. Everything was fine, but nothing was outstandingly excellent. It was a 2.5 hr flight, so no food or entertainment."
