Cons: "despite an outrageous price we had problems registering our luggage economy light never heard of it"

Pros: "Crew seem competent, airplane was fairly clean and not too old, food not awful, ac outlets in economy, headphones not the worst."

Pros: "Cabin crew was extremely friendly, welcoming, and provided good inflight service."

Cons: "Everything was OK."
Pros: "Nice entertainment selection"
Cons: "Too many snacks, food was low quality, flight was delayed with no reason given,"
Cons: "The flight left 19 minutes early, stranding 7 people who were connecting from New Orleans. We ran across the entire airport and made it to the gate before departure time. The employee at Lufthansa Senator lounge was nice enough to tell us that the crew must have felt like leaving early. She was very nonchalant about the whole issue. She also refused to assist us, and told us we needed to exit the airport and reenter through the ticketing counter. I upheld my end of the deal by reaching the gate in time. This situation needs to be rectified."
Pros: "Our cabin service was superb Our seats were wonderful"
Cons: "Nothing it was perfect"
Pros: "Great crew and on time."
Cons: "Seating a bit cramped"
Pros: "There was no communication between aircrew and gate for transfers. There is a new additional check between gates and no passenger was informed. This security check was over an hour long. The flight was not held for me and other passengers and when we arrived at the gate they were oblivious of the fact that we had been held up in what seemed to be a Km long security line."
Cons: "No entertainment system."
Pros: "Monitor in front of me did not work during the whole flight. The seat was really crammed in and not enough leg room.Monitor in front of me did not work during the whole flight. The seat was really crammed in and not enough leg room."

Pros: "New aircraft, clean, comfortable"
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Pleasant flight all around."
Pros: "I can’t say enough about the Lufthansa staff- we ran to our gate because our connecting flight was late, and we were greeted by a warm and smiling face who said “It’s alright, don’t run, take your time, we’re waiting for you.” Onboard the crew was phenomenal- Every. Single. One. I have always felt as a burden to crew if I asked for extra water or an extra blanket- not on this flight, not with this crew. They came around multiple times per hour during an 8hr and 20min flight, offering various beverages and checking on everyone. I can’t thank them enough for how caring they were to everyone on board. The captain as well was very professional and had a kind spirit when he spoke. Best experience I’ve ever had- (and I travel multiple times per year!)"
Pros: "Everyone was very polite, seats were fairly comfortable. Food was about what you'd expect, but with more chocolate, which was nice. Enough movies to keep me busy."
Cons: "Spilled a drink and requested someone come by, only to have three people ignore my light and visible waving arms. Had to move my neighbor and find some napkins, by which time my seat was soaked through. While I was cleaning, someone asked if I had turned my light on."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Stroller damaged by cargo people"
Cons: "I didn't like anything"
Pros: "Able to start viewing entertainment while waiting for boarding and after landing."
Cons: "Their silly 8 kg weight limit for carry on baggage was a surprise and really not consistently enforced. Couldn't go through the one pass customs line adding more than an hour to that part of my trip. Crew couldn't answer questions about dairy in the food."
Cons: "No major issue."
Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "Everything!!!! The staff was so friendly and helpful. I trsvel to Germany twice a year and fly Air Berlin. No longer!! Lufthansa was them beat hands down."
Cons: "The 1-star responses correspond to N/A. Mt flight was :30."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport chaos Lyon customs downstairs in arrivals checkin upstairs so they can't view your items if you are claiming tax back. Clever French move. Obviously happens a lot"
Cons: "Food foul / fowl staff brusque breakfast in edible stone cold dinner as something my 10 year old could better prepare boarding chaos Frankfurt immigration staff curiously aggressive wouldn't pay premium economy again with this airline"
Pros: "Took me to great location"
Cons: "Just about the whole trip. Way to expensive! Food was bad for the money. Delta was great to Paris last year. Using kayak was to expensive! Next time will go airline. To Paris a lot cheaper. This airline has fees to the max!"

Cons: "Late boarding after allowing priority customer to board, Crew then took ages to start to finish boarding and taxi , Plane sent to furtherest runway, Made little time up,"
Pros: "Free coffeeandjuice; on time and nothing to complain about"
Cons: "The food wasn't good. The beef goulash was chewy and a piece of gristle got caught berween my teeth which I had difficulty removing. For lunch I had a pizza margarita and nothing else. Something else like an ice cream cup would have been nice. I tried to check in a second bag online and was unable to do so. I paid $75 at the check in counter which is exhirbitant compared to other airlines. my brother paid $100 for a bag which was 9 pounds over the limit- that's outrageous!! The person at the check in counter had difficulty with the credit card machine and we waited over 20 minutes to resolve the issue."
Pros: "Excellent service all around"
Cons: "They don't board with any structure. It is a big free for all."
Pros: "Not many qualms during the flight back from Frankfurt - the flight was comfortable and the entertainment system functionded."
