Don't understand how a highly organized German system has no signage or employees to direct traffic on boarding. Either preferred or general - which means the line for boarding strung along 3 gates for over 40 minutes. As well folks let me through with documentation and then stopped me because someone along the way didn't put a sticker on back of my passport. Sticker shortage??? Finally- and my biggest gripe- if it is a government mandate for everyone flying to Germany to wear a mask , why did my associates not have to wear one on AA? It is an airline issue. And if the US doesn't mandate masks, ok for flying into Germany, but why in to US? Again, none of associates HAD TO wear masks. Get that Germans have a preference and respect that, but if I just had to pay 30 euros for a rapid test that said I was negative to get on the plane, why this added hassle imposed by airline - again not a government thing. Or if I'm wrong, then AA and BA are non compliant.
Comfortable flight and personable flight staff.
Great flight no food or entertainment
Cons: "Every thing, from the crew attitude to the food to the entertainment and comfort."
Pros: "Cabin staff were cheerful and helpfully"
Cons: "We had 4 luthansa flights in a week I appreciate that we were given a drink one up on BA ! However I am trying not to be picky every snack was chocolate 26 grames per 100g not great for a diabetic !!!! It would be lovely to have a savoury option"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Uncomfortable tight seating in economy"
Cons: "The airline cancelled my ticket because they said I was not on my earlier flight two weeks prior. This was absolutely not true. I had taken the flight and also checked bags. For an airline to cancel someones tickets and not notify them is highly unethical."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and provided excellent service"
Cons: "The seat could have been a little bit more comfortable. Then again for a long trip, unless you are in business or first class, it's not going to be that comfortable."
Cons: "They lost my luggage during the tranfer in Frankfurt. They did return it however within 24 hours."
Pros: "Cabin crew was extremely friendly, welcoming, and provided good inflight service."
Cons: "The boarding was very chaotic. Very few institutions or announcements made by ground crew. Passengers weren’t sure where to queue being that there were multiple gates for the A380-800 and were left asking each other and comparing boarding passes. Little to no air circulation in economy."
Pros: "I just loved the friendliness of the crew. Way to go Lufthansa"
Cons: "Not sure about the seats but they could use some cushion."
Pros: "Most uncomfortable flight in years. No space. Hard seats, horrible food, had to beg for water. Little service, and not friendly. Overall a horrible flight. At least we made there on time"
Pros: "Very roomy seats, friendly attendants. Nice sunset. My sister liked the 'tour' of the airport on taxiing to the gate. I found it frustrating. The plane was about 30 minutes late which was nice because it took a while to get off our Munich flight, find our new gate and we ended up nearly running to the gate."
Cons: "I, again, didn't like walking down 3 flights of stairs, getting a crowded bus to take us to the plane. We are used to using a jetway to the plane. I realize that European airports are busier than American airports though."
Pros: "Staff was very pleasant , polite, and accommodating"
Cons: "No complaints except for the how long is the flight, but it’s a part of a journey"
Cons: "There was no information from Lufthanza. There were no lanes. There was no one at the check in desks. There was no crowd control. There was no triage. I was bloody chaos. I arrived 3 hours and 40 minutes in advance of the flight and traveled only 25 feet toward the check in desk in over 5 hours. When we went to the information desk, we were told that the flight would wait for the passengers to be processed...but we never were and the flight took off only 35 minutes later than scheduled. it was the worst flying experience I have had in over 50 years!"
Cons: "All flights cancelled. Stuck overnight."
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: "Their computer terminals were down on the boarding area. Actually about 5 Boarding areas were down no one was available to give direction or answer questions until you got To the front of the line and many had to be sent then to a different line. Bad enough the terminals were down but not even close to German efficiency in handling the problem. Also several of the stewards were rather surly and short"
Pros: "Had ridiculously long bus ride from terminal to plane. Plane was parked on the outer reaches of the airport. This happens far too often on Lufthansa when connecting in Franfort. Build more gates!!"
Cons: "Business clsss sweats on A321 were coach seats with the center seat left empty. Not sir it is worth the higher fare."
Cons: "You have to pay for food unless it is pretzels."
Cons: "Absolutely unprofessional. Zero courtesy’s & hospitality. Totally untrained ground staff. Will want to file a lawsuit against the airlines."
Pros: "Food. Variety of entertainment. Flight had empty seats."
Cons: "Over an hour delay sitting with bad air quality. At least it was only 20 minutes late so I didn't miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Not go your a day off"
Cons: "Your programmers don't know what they're doing"
Pros: "Crew is very professional"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly small, flights are overcrowded and rarely on time."
Pros: "Always professional in every detail Great food Great customer service"
Cons: "The variety of drinks"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good leg room, pleasant staff"
Cons: "We were late arriving in Prague and then waiting for my luggage only to realise after waiting till the very last luggage THAT my luggage was left in Frankfurt and I didn’t get it til 21.00hrs - totally ruining my plans for my first night in Prague!!!!"
Pros: "Great crew good seat room"
Cons: "1.the screen had a gletch that it was doing a restart by itself 2.the boarding was confusing since the way to the gate is blocked and doesnt open until 50 min prior to boarding 3.there wasnt any groups for boarding except for business class and first class first then economy my seat was in the 51 row and i wasnt in the front of the line of boarding so i had to wait alot to get to my seat since everybody were putting their carry-on and blocking the aisle"
Pros: "Easy boarding comfort seats"
Cons: "No entertainment at all it is 2017 not from all countries but still need any kind of entertainment for a 3.20min flight"
Pros: "My flight from Budapest took off hour later then scheduled. We landed in Munich only ten minutes before the international flight's take off to San Francisco. Upon the Munich landing, eight of us were escorted on a special bus, with a special pass controll and on special routs to make sure we get on the plane on time. Our laggage managed to get on the same plane as well. Thank you Lufthansa!"
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Very hot on the plane, food mediocre, flight attendants could be friendlier"
Cons: "Due to repair aircraft equipmen, almost 1h delay my flight."
Pros: "wasn't Lufthansa it was actually Singapore airlines they changed my flight and it was very good"
Cons: "It was very good"
Cons: "They ran out of food choices for the people who sat in the back of the plane. I had preferred to eat chicken rather than pasta but the choice was not available anymore. The same happened with the breakfast sandwiches."
Pros: "Interesting the bathroom downstairs...then asking people to not form lines on the stairs makes the process a little more complicated...if a person has mobility problems, which restroom should they use?"
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing. Lack of clear signs and announcements didn't help to form lines. People just went to the gates after families, handicapped, vets, etc..passed the gates, business and first. Improving that process by forming ordered lines would help. Entertainment presented movies that are old and have been dysplayed on flights for years. Entertainment in general is poor. Seating not as expected! I chose my seat online and once on the plane I found out the organization of the seats was different than the one displlayed online. I chose an aisle sea on a 3 seat row and I ended up on a 4 seat row and squeezed in between two other passengers. The seats are "growing" smaller and smaller, and the shape and mobility of the chairs makes them uncomfortable. On my row there were 3 screens installed on the ahead seats, and my screen was by 3/4 in front of the passenger on my right. That made difficult controlling the screen function with me stretching my harm over the other passenger's face. I payed $2,000 for that flight in economy. $2,000 for an economy class is not cheap! And you don't offer a great experience. Either lower the price or improve the overall experience."
Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff, even though a bit bossy, but that's the German way (which I am too)."
Cons: "Little space. and NO WIFI. This is really no longer adequate in 2017. In the US, practically all domestic flights have wifi now."
Cons: "I had requested a gluten free meal weeks before my travel and it was not confirmed for the Naples to Frankfurt flight. I think that if I already requested ahead of time that the flight crew should know about it and be ready to provide me with the correct meal even if I don't call back and confirm."
Cons: "Gate distances were too far away and passport control in Munich is not organized"
Pros: "Ouldn't have been better Good choice of movies Food was fine"
Pros: "the woman who helped me at the boarding gate was great! Lounge was really nice!"
Pros: "Please see above. Typed in the wrong place."
Pros: "Tremendous selection of movie entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit confusing"
Pros: "Professional airlines. one of the best and AWESOME FOOD for an airlines. Did i mention i love Lufthansa??"
Cons: "nothing the airline can do about but too many crying kids on the plane."
Pros: "The crew was quite nice and boarding at Philadelphia was organized."
Cons: "I was disappointed with the movie selections; there weren't many new offerings."
Pros: "The food and drink were good. The crew very polite and professional."
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Friendly, professional staff"
Cons: "Personal space too small"
