Cons: "Upon arriving to Frankfurt airport (gate Z) from Boston, i had an hour to make it to gate A including passport control. Once I got to to gates A50-69 I was told that i had to turn back and go through a different passport control as the one close to gates A50-69 was too busy/full. So I turned back although i had no specific gate number where the passport control was. Once I got there, after 10 mins walking (around gate Z20) around and asking lufthansa staff I came across a rather long queue. At that point I only had 30 mins until my flight to Budapest was boarding. I knew I would not get through that queue on time and there was no assistance. So I decided to turn nack and go back to gates A50-69 assport cobtrol where luckily there was no queue at all. I do not understand why i was turned away by staff the very first time I got to that passport control and why there was no assistance by airport staff. Not happy at all about that."

Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "flights were comfortable."
Cons: "They lost my luggage both ways! I missed my connecting flight from FRA to TXL so I was given a train voucher from FRA to TXL instead of a flight. Luggage came 2 days later. Then they canceled my return flights TXL- FRA-MCO because "I didn't complete my journey". They rebooked me as wait list and then eventually I was confirmed. Luggage lost on return flight, no idea if/when I will receive."

Flight is only 80 minutes and drink and snack offered."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "McDonald's type food. I couldn't eat it at all. TV screen with very slow response, almost impossible to use. Very frustrating on a long flight."
Cons: "Seating was incredibly uncomfortable and cramped. Legs were in pain after the flight. Not enough beverage service for such a long dlight."
Pros: "Flying from San Francisco to Madrid via Munich in economy class. All very good in general, in fact the best experience compared with other airlines I have used in the past for the same trip. Vegetarian meal was good, but only on the long leg. Munich to Madrid was not possible to choose the special meal, but that is not that important for me, so I eat what I could and that was good enough. The crew was super nice. The plane is huge, toilets are literally 'downstairs' and extra room to hang out. I will definitely choose Lufthansa again for my trips to Europe."
Cons: "If you want to reserve a seat in advance you need to pay for it, that's the only thing I didn't quite like because I found it after I bought the ticket. It was not mentioned clearly in advance, and it felt like an afterwards surprise, really? I paid for it anyways. For me it is worth it to make sure I get a window seat on the long leg flight."
Pros: "Good entertainment and food"
Cons: "Could use a foot rest"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above And landing was extremely hard.!"
Cons: "Same as Abu e"
Pros: "comfortable seats, i like that the entire seat reclines, not just the seat back, and the TV screens can be adjusted when the person in front moves their seat. i like that water was offered several times during the flight, not just during regular drink times. the food was delicious and filling"
Pros: "Service confort timimg"
Pros: "The crew and in flight experience were excellent."
Cons: "Terminal procedures, particularly a tarmac delay and understaffed customs and security personnel, jeopardized my London Heathrow connection in spite of the 80 minute layover. Itineraries with less than a two-hour connection should be discontinued as a fraudulent misrepresentation of the passenger's likely success. I will never fly through Heathrow again."
Cons: "We were in economy class. It looked like the seats my wife and I were in were smaller than the surrounding seats. The seat I was assigned was also more narrow than the one my wife was assigned. I am tall, and could not move my legs for the trip. Also, the seat controls were on the inside is the seat. I could not move at all without turning on the overhead light or screen."
Cons: "Upgraded my seats for $$$ and they changed the plane and wouldn't honor it. Returning flight was canceled and they were very unhelpful"
Pros: "All expected for the economy class.great enterntaiment"
Cons: "Seats a bit uncomfortable."
Cons: "The food was not goot at all."
Pros: "Trip was very comfortable. I was also upgrades which was very nice. I will check the rates for Lufthansa every time I go to Italy. It is the airline of my choice. Also the plane was new and very clean. Thanks Vince F. Chicago"
Pros: "The entertainment and the size for the legs are very okay on A340 Lufthansa flights compared to other carriers."
Pros: "Service with a smile. Great food. Great use of space for bathrooms away from passengers"
Pros: "This was a very new plane and had extra leg room even in coach."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and efficient, as expected. The connection was thankfully in the same terminal as the incoming flight. Luckily the passport control area was pretty quiet or we never would have made it in time. I had a backpack only so could go fast."
Cons: "Got late into Munich and ended up with a tarmac spot instead of a gate. Got in late on the connecting flight and literally had to run through the terminal to get to the gate, Then after all of the stress we got on the plane from another bus. That's the bad thing about connecting through German hubs on Liftansa: they make very tight connections and you don't know if they will wait at the second flight to not. I have missed by minutes in the past in similar situations. And no other flight to Dublin from Munich until hours later"
