Cons: "My meal was awful the only option for me was raw vegetables in order to have vegetarian and gluten free... It was carrot, cucumber and celery sticks and some fruit.

Cons: "seats"
Pros: "The service for my granddaughters was phenomenal."

Cons: "Nil"

Great staff. Check-in was a nightmare.

Boarding in Munich is so did organized.

Lufthansa cancelled my flight with no support to rebook. Their chat service was a joke.

Flight was overbooked. Crew did a great job but passengers weren’t nice and really not patient. Flying in these times is not the best idea tbh.

Flight was delayed, poor boarding, lack of information, food mediocre.

Lufthansa is on strike and this flight was cancelled

Because we didn't have the AirCanada app downloaded in time, they closed the boarding door. After a big scene, they opened the door to let us in. Then we had a long delay on the tarmac which caused us to miss our connecting flight in Toranto. The next flight was a day later and is a 5 hour flight because of the connections which should have only been only a 1 hour flight. Never using Kayak, Lufthansa or Air Canada again.

short flight. everything went off without a problem

the economy seats are really cramped.

Document check to verify our negative covid test was efficient. The supervisor at the Frankfurt gate to depart to SFO was not helpful when I asked with group I was boarding with. Dismissive and said it was on my pass. If it was on my pass I wouldn’t have needed to ask. Everything else about the flight was good- on time departure and good crew given circumstances with covid, masking etc.

Cons: "50 min. delay for absolutely nothing. No proper gate available. Only one bus had to serve all passengers from terminal to aircraft. Lufthansa should not operate as a budget airline."
Cons: "Boarding"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor customer service, was booked off twice without being informed."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Seats were good."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport was bad. Too hot and poor organization. There was no place to sit and we were not allowed to go to the gate where sitting place was available."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The proximity of the arriving and departing gates"
Pros: "Overall"
Cons: "Nothing to add?"
Cons: "They lost my luggage during the tranfer in Frankfurt. They did return it however within 24 hours."
Pros: "Never made it on this fliggt due to previous flight was delayed. Im stuck in London as of now. Never booking with kayak again"
Pros: "Efficiency"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Great customer service!"
Pros: "The crew here was Much, much friendlier! They were smiling, joking, and happy. The stewardess even directed me to a free isle seat so I wouldn't have to sit in the middle where it was a bit more cramped. I wish my first experience with Lufthansa; they could have had a loyal customer since I will ve flying to Bulgaria 2 times a year in the next 6 years."
Cons: "The bus to get to the plane was very cramped."
Pros: "It’s always a pleasure, easy and organized to fly with you. I have been using Lufthansa for the last 3 years, every time I must fly because of the quality of service and of its crew."
Pros: "Lufthansa is always high quality"
Cons: "I dislike how one must stow the entertainment system so early before landing"
Pros: "Crew looked after me after a family took up a whole row including my designated seat. I need up with the back row to myself so could put my feet up & chill after a less than pleasant 5+ hours wait at Munich!"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. My seat was near the front of the plane but the crew directed me to enter at the back of the plane. There were people entering from both the front and the back, meaning people were stuck trying to get past each other in the tight aisle. It was difficult to find space in the overhead compartments for carryon luggage due to people bringing too much stuff - the crew should have stepped in and helped. The food was a bad chicken sandwich with condiments that I could not eat."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. There was not enough space for my carry-on luggage so they had to take it in the front."
Cons: "The flight was delayed . When we arrived in Frankfurt, there was a quie of 200m . After waiting 10 minutes, they asked us to go to other passport control . We had to walk onother 10 minutes to get there ."
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew, they not only served us well, they were having fun doing it. Job well done. Thank you all."
Cons: "Nothing really, everything was great."
Cons: "They Changed the terminal last minute and i miss the flight ! horrible experience i needed to pay new tickets 300$ ! i will never going to book or recommend to anyone to fly with your company.."
Cons: "The chicken was too spicy & hot for general public. You should take lessons from Swiss Air... food was delicious!"
Pros: "Munich airport is very well organized."
Cons: "We had reserved our seats ahead of time but as we were boarding we were told that instead of sitting on row 4, we should seat at a row at the back of the plane. We were not notified ahead of time or or given an option. Flight attendants were refusing to help passengers and were actually rude to people who needed help to find a place for their luggage. Honestly, I didn’t expect this from Lufthansa and am very disappointed."
Pros: "For airline food it was very good. Lots of offers for water & drinks."
Pros: "The entire experience was great. Easy check-in, boarding, on time, friendly service, good food, good movies, and overall a really nice atmosphere for such a long flight. Would recommend this Flight to anyone."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "United was operating the flight. They asked for 200 to assign me seat next to the path. I found out in the plane after i got to my middle seat that they gave a good front seat close to the path to somebody who was stand by..... They also stated that they can not check my nags to Sofia since they DO NOT FLY TO SOFIA..."
Cons: "United was operating the flight. They asked for 200 to assign me seat next to the path.

They also stated that they can not check my nags to Sofia since they DO NOT FLY TO SOFIA..."
Pros: "The crew was very polite!"
Cons: "It felt really tight."
Pros: "Didn't try the food."
Cons: "Nothing out of the ordinary regarding the flight itself. The gate was changed twice, which was inconvenient. Not much leg room or no adjustable pillows on the seats."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and provided constant updates while the flight was delayed multiple times."
Cons: "It is not a good idea to serve dinner at 1am in the evening when people are falling asleep. It would have been a better idea to serve lunch vs dinner"
Pros: "General quality and competence."
Cons: "I find the seats in Economy rather uncomfortable (Premium Economy is way better, but too expensive for me)."
Pros: "everything on time on the right place with the right numbers ... perfect ;)"
Cons: "seats on LH435 from ORD to MUC too small and tight"
Pros: "I loved the choice of movies"
Cons: "Lack of space"
Pros: "Smooth flight , excellent crew"
Cons: "Entertainment was boring , screens freez and small"
Cons: "Flight got canceled, everything was slow."
Cons: "Because of a family illness I had to reschedule my flight 2 weeks before. Because the flight was booked through a secondary company, rebooking the outgoing flight ended upp: a) costing me as much as the whole original return flight; b) was no longer a 1 stop flight as I also had to stop in Frankfurt plus the company would not allow me to choose directly, I sent them details and then they booked what they could find; and c) I lost both the outgoing flight ( which was charged) and the return flight ( which was not changed) premium seat bookings both of which I had to pay for a second time. If I had booked directly with the airline this would have cost a transfer fee and I would not have lost the premium seat bookings. This was therefore a great expense and inconvenience. I will no longer book flights indirectly when using kayak. In future I will search using google flights and then go straight to the airline sites to book. Very disappointed. I never had this problem when booking with kayak before"
Cons: "seats were old and uncofmortable. i asked for coffee which they totally forgot to bring me and the crew was just generally mean and very dismissive. no food at all - could have served a breakfast sandwich or something no entertainment or charging docks. ."
Pros: "Why am I getting this email. I am not this person taking this trip..I'm frustrated with this ...I talked to the the airline already numerous times and still I am getting emails from Lufthansa and kayak."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above."
