Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "1. NON-Organization lines for boarding passengers 2. Very rude and disrespectful communication skills of male flight attendant This flight left me with very unpleasant experience."
Pros: "Crew very helpful."
Cons: "Both flights late. Food was worthy rather than tasty. Seats small. Too much plastic - why not use non plastic cups. Sexist safety card."
Cons: "On the way out Lufthansa charged us a total of £129 to take our bags with us (all under 23KG). On the way back with the same 3 identical bags Lufthansa charged us $399.47 (£306.92), again all under 23KG. How can it be fair to charge passengers 2.4 times more to return home with their bags?"
Pros: "Literally one of the worst check in experiences I have ever had traveling"
Cons: "The person checking me in could have given me a few minutes to help me understand the flight delay"
Cons: "Another snack midflight."
Cons: "The comfort and the food"
Cons: "Food was OK, could have been better."

Pros: "The airline crew was responsive and professional. The flight was also very smooth."
Cons: "The boarding process was like a buffet: first come first served."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful. This plane was bigger and had more space for our legs and our carry on bags. It was nice to be offered a free sandwich and drink. Everything was clean."
Cons: "We didn't like the sandwich and our flight was about 30 minutes late. The magazines in the seat are just shopping and not interesting."
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!!"
Cons: "The first flight for this trio was cancelled .. stop with automated cron jobs"
Pros: "I flew premium economy from Hong Kong to Frankfurt on the A340-600. The crew was excellent, attentive and friendly. They always have a great attitude and this has been consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The seat and meal were average for premium economy, but the crew more than made up for it."
Cons: "The seats were quite hard and lacking in padding in premium economy. The meal was average and nothing to bring home to."
Cons: "we didn't make it. None existent communication."
Pros: "Second leg of an overseas flight still business class nice service tired from overnight first leg"
Cons: "As me ruined in the first leg they lost my luggage and eight hours later they have no idea where it is. After paying over 2000 bucks for a business class flight that really put a damper on things."
Pros: "nice clean plane"
Cons: "the wifi is free but doesn‘t work. flynet app didn‘t pair"
Cons: "50 minutes late"
Cons: "Tight space"
Cons: "Our flight from Tel Aviv on Lufthansa was 20 minutes late. We only had 40 minutes for our connection in Frankfort but made it to the gate 5 minutes early. The gate was closed 10 minutes early and they would not let us on. There were 17 of us, 10 of which were children. They would not let us on BUT we’re able to spend 30 extra minutes at the gate, not on the tarmac, to remove all of our luggge off the plane. It would of taken them less than 10 minutes to let us in the flight. I don’t even know what to say about the complete lack of any competence."
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: "I like crew members service"
Cons: "Didn’t like seat was not comfortable plus some time smells bad in flight"
Cons: "they called for boarding and all the signs said the flight was boarding and yet we stood there for a good 20 minutes before they actually started boarding the flight, but other than that, flight and crew were great!"
Pros: "Rebecca was quite pleasant and also pleasant-looking."
Cons: "Rebecca didn't take me home with her. I'll try harder next time."
Pros: "The Lufthansa help desk fairly quickly resolved the ticket and boarding pass problems."
Cons: "That it was still necessary to use the help desk to get aboarding pass, although they were totally professional and resolved the issue."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, about what you'd expect from a short-duration flight on a major airline."
Cons: "I wished to change to an earlier flight with plenty of seats available. the Lufthansa ticket agent stated the only way, as I had booked a "light" fare, was to pay a full-price one-way economy ticket--plus luggage--for about 380 euros with no credit for my current ticket. After booking a day-room at a local hotel, I checked in on-line and discovered for 115 euros I could have upgraded to business class, with luggage included, and been accommodated on schedule changes. My suggestion to Lufthansa is if they intend to rip their customers off it's best NOT TO LET THEM FIND OUT ON THEIR OWN WEBSITE, or if they're simply too incompetent to match marketing offers to their booking department they could save considerable income and reputation by closing the ticket office. As it was, the impression was a low-class money grab. It's not like they can count on their partnership with United to make them look good."
Pros: "service was excellent, food was good, flight crew very pleasant."
Pros: "Having power at the seat is great. The movie player is a nice bonus for sure. Flight attendants are nice, helpful and professional! Had a nice flight!"
Cons: "Nothing really. I had a very positive experience on this flight!"
Pros: "Leg room in Coach. Six bathrooms on a lower level relieved congestion and gave a place to stretch legs. WIne and cocktails included in meal. Crew was plesant."
Cons: "Munich airport: only a vending machine in the waiting area. Flight was delayed one hour and couldn't buy water if you had no coins."
Pros: "The staff was quite good and they knew how to treat passengers well."
Cons: "Not really anything to complain about."
Pros: "The crew, food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "I could not even cross my leg. The coach seats are ridiculous and because of that, I will not book on the airline again. Sorry, coach seats should be an option for everyone, not just someone the size of a 9 year old. I'm only 5'2" and 120 lbs."
Cons: "My wifes luggage was lost, no followup at all from Lufthansa (main) or in Seville which was our destination. We had to call to find out any information. Once the bag was found and delivered to Seville, Lufthansa personnel again did not tell us nor would they deliver the bag to our hotel as the driver had already left. We then had to wait another day to have the bag delivered to Granada. Terrible customer service, the bag was missing for four days causing us to spend time shopping for clothes rather than experiencing the city."
Pros: "Glad to have a sandwich; it tasted good. The caterers use lots of mayonnaise on the cold cuts which can be messy since it was oozing out but I like gooey food rather than dry food so I was happy. Very nice crew."
Cons: "Just odd that I walked a mile thru the airport to make the connection only to board a shuttle bus that went back the same direction for the longest such ride in my life, past parked planes, maintenance areas, fuel storage tanks and finally the cargo plane section where our plane was located. Might be hard on those more impaired than I am to handle the stairs down to the bus loading dock and again up into the plane."
Cons: "My Name is Randy Frye. I left my head phone on the plane, spoke with a Lufthansa rep they called and said I would not have time to go back for them but they would send them to me. then the flight going from Munich to Frankfurt was late so I missed my flight from Frankfurt to Dusseldorf. Waited for 3 hours then the flight to Dusseldorf was canceled. waited for 2 hours for a train ticket. then had to take another train to the airport to get a rental car. GOT TO THE HOTEL AT 11:30pm Saturday night had to be at work at 7:00am NOT HAPPY"
Cons: "Too much sugary bread as nourishment."
Pros: "I liked the service and friendliness of the crew and number of items available on the flight."
Cons: "The food was not amazing (but not the worst I've had either) . The flight announcements were a bit annoying as they kept interrupting the movies (mainly because they were off and on)"
Pros: "Professional flight crew. Good leg room. Smooth flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "I liked how I was taken advantage of, knowing it will never happen again"
Cons: "After having my ticket Inadvertently canceled didn't like the lack of support in purchasing a new ticket through Luftansia's customer service agents that deals with consolidators such as Kayak. In the end I was left not be able to buy a ticket for three days after being quoted a specific price and charged about triple the rate originally quoted it initially quoted I wasted valuable time into my vacation along with an amazing amount of stress ."
Pros: "Economy class was amazing"
Pros: "The service and flight was smooth."
Cons: "Breakfast was terrible. We only got a croissant and jam. It would have been nice to have had an actual meal."
Cons: "The overall Boarding was chaotic and area was cramped, however, all other service was exceptional. Boarding should be organized by rows."
Cons: "There was no entertainment service on the flught"
Pros: "The below refers to the layover in Ethiopia"
Cons: "It would be nice on the long Ethiopian layovers to be able to exit the airport and see the city. They said if my layover was more than eight hours, it would be possible. I think my previous layover was four hours, and have another layover of maybe six hours coming up. Should be equally awful. I am a priority pass member, which gets me into great lounges in other more sophisticated airports, but evidently I can't go into their little star alliance club. Why such a long layover in such a worthless airport??"
Pros: "Great crew for a change, very helpful and pro!"
Pros: "Yes, Very good"
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Klm's consistantly high standards in everything they do."
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Pros: "Food was great, enjoyed watching videos, staff very profession and friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and prolonged My Baggage was not transferred and was not available when I arrived in Dulles."
Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."
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."
Pros: "Just as I expected. And I made my last connection easily."
Cons: "Head support for 6 feet plus people on seats would be good"
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. I travel KLM often and always enjoy the flights."
Cons: "There were several flight delays and gates were changes a few times."
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"

Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"

Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and professional. Promp response to calling for attention."
Cons: "Wish there was better lumbar support for the seats. The food could be a bit more exciting with simple addition of lime pickles. Overall can not complain for economy standard!"
Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable. The seats were small, you felt on top of the person next to you, and there was no leg room. I am a pretty small person- I can't image how uncomfortable all of the taller passengers must have been."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
Pros: "The last two times we connected in Amsterdam to Humberside our luggage was delayed. This time it wasn’t. The simple things give the greatest satisfaction"
Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"
Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."
Pros: "was very quick"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Pros: "They were awesome."
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."
Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
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: "The crew were very friendly and accomodating, plane was clean and boarding amd disembarking was efficiently handled."
Cons: "55 minute delay was not welcome."
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
Pros: "captain was great."
Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."
Cons: "seats on Jet air flight are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Fewer entertainment options than the delta flight. I got excited with that first flight."
Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."
Pros: "During my first flight from East Midlands England to Amsterdam I lost my baggage by another airlines and the KLM crew was very dedicated and supportive until they found it and check in for me... Many thanks and I wouldn't forget it."
Pros: "Staff was excellent. Entertainment options pretty good."
Cons: "Seems very dated. Business Class felt cramped and not very luxurious."
