Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Boarding from bus and no aero bridge"
Pros: "Plane was super nice and new and crew was great!"
Pros: "Crew was professional, kind and capable. Everyone went smoothly and on time. The downstairs bathrooms were great: roomy, clean and FIVE of them so no waiting!"
Cons: "The food was just okay. A better choice of wine and more selection of spirits would be nice."
Pros: "The flight was on time, perfectly organized, excellent flight attendants and efficient service"
Cons: "There were no negatives (and rarely are with Lufthansa)"
Pros: "Service is excellent, comfortable seats and space between legs is comfortable even in economy."
Pros: "Everyone on this flight from the crew to all were awesome, exactly what you hope for when traveling internationally"
Cons: "My bags did not make it to Copenhagen...again! So disppointed and completely put out by this inconvenience"
Pros: "It was nice trip and comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the movie selection was decent. Food was ok. As good as it can be when you pay $2,500 for a flight ticket knowing that they are not really there to offer you a service, they are there to make their own money knowing that as a traveler you really have no options other than an airplane if you want to go across the ocean."
Cons: "Seats become smaller and smaller...and you keep asking about my experience...$2,500 to travel seating in a miniature seat with no leg room is a bit much...and I know no flight company cares about this...we have no choice...either take that or don’t travel, right?"
Pros: "Attentive and friendly staff, great food and plenty of drinks!!!"
Pros: "Overall once on the flight the service and comfort were very good. Attendants were very nice and helpful. Always had a smile and made the flight enjoyable. We specifically picked this Airline for its service and reliablity"
Cons: "The checkin and "Automated" Baggage Check were a disaster. It took us a full 2 hours to check our bags and get to thru security and our gate. We were practically running to get to the end. The layout of the airport is very tough to get from point A to point B. Walking a long distance with multiple security checks. On top of that, the plane was almost an hour late boarding and then taking off. It was a mass of people with no way to cue for an orderly boarding process. No instructions or info given to allow us to go get something to eat or drink prior to boarding."
Pros: "Food was great and the staff were even better. We were served lunch and dinner. I watched at least 4 movies. The staff provided great snacks and wonderful company. Great flight."
Pros: "Good staff and food."
Cons: "Flight was late and boarding was unorganized. When the person sitting in front of me moved their chair it hit my head and moved all my stuff, this should not happen. We should not feel our area moved because the person moved their seat in front of us."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Checking in on-line was not very "user friendly". Our aircraft had to be replaced causing a 2 hour delay, part of which was an ATC sequencing delay. The 50 minute ATC delay couldn't be controlled by LH, but the original equipment replacement was at the bottom of the overall delay. My "A" window seat in economy had significantly reduce foot space due to a metal box installed in the space. The seat was not particularly well designed, but it's economy so you get what you get. The food was average at best."
Pros: "Everything as expected."
Pros: "Worst food ever. Stewardess could not figure out where my seat was . Seemed unfamiliar with the plane."
Pros: "I did get my meal request for the 2nd leg."
Pros: "Thanks for offering kosher!"
Cons: "Fish :("
Pros: "Best short/medium-haul economy breakfast I've had in a while. Flight was empty, so there was space to stretch out. Watch out for the seat maps – they seem to reconfigure the J/Y balance on this flight frequently, so your seat assignment may change. Such a lovely crew"
Cons: "Moscow passengers were awful as always. Arrival/transit at Frankfurt is a nightmare if you need to be somewhere quick – just walking and riding transit took 30 min. of my two hours."
Cons: "Boarding process was longer than expected. Seat assigment from check in was not honored at the gate. FA asked me to switch seat only to favor passenger from Germany."
Cons: "no screen for movies getting all aboard without dividing into sitting numbers."
Pros: "Seats were ok for a short flight."
Pros: "Great service from a super crew. On time."
Pros: "Crew on board were excellent."
Cons: "There was a 40 minute delay in the Athens airport, which precipitated a race to catch the connection in Munich to Boston. Also, the food was below par. Nothing you'd get from the old Lufthansa..."
Pros: "Smiles from the male and female stewards. Being gracious to customers and treating them with respect....keeping us from getting bored"
Cons: "the Airbus was much more crowded than the Boeing (777) we flew over on and run by United. When food/trash was being passed, it was tough for passengers coming from the rest room to get back to their seat."
Cons: "Although we had reserved (paid) seats as a family in an entire row, upon check in we were given different seats. We had to spend 20 minutes talking with different agents in order to get our original seats."
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work even after being reset twice. And the flight was too full to move."
Pros: "Very friendly staff!"
Cons: "Monitor was very slow and at some moments not working at all (even after restart)"
Pros: "Everything seemed to run smoothly."
Cons: "No issues this leg"
Pros: "Boarding staff was cooperative On time departures and arrivals"
Cons: "Crew in Lufthansa are racist. Don't want to elaborate here but trust me for this. Bad quality food. They don't even have sufficient food for everyone. I didn't get two meals on one flight. Loo's are not maintained. Crew too rude. Had called a flight attendant for service but didn't show up until an hour (exactly an hour). Later I had to get up and take it. Can write an essay on my whole journey."
Cons: "flight cancellation was communicated late, with no specific plan how to get to the LAX flight. (The flight was also cancelled the next day; my wife was on that flight; I don't believe it was a technical reasons because of this) Resolving the issue wasn't smooth and needed my involvement to propose a working connection. I am Star Alliance gold member (through United) and this did finally give me a connection."
Cons: "I selected seats and when I got on the plane I was moved twice. The seats were very small and uncomfortable. The food was bad."
Cons: "I fly Lufthansa several times each year. This flight was the worst I can recall. My husband and I purchased exit row seats for additional leg room only to discover that an additional row was added in front of us for people with babies. We were squished behind them with very little leg room. We were surrounded by several babies, all of them crying constantly; this was totally ignored by both the parents and the crew. I was ready to start crying loudly myself, wondering if anyone would pay attention to that. We ordered special meals online but were served regular ones. When I told the attendant that we should be getting special meals, he peevishly and defensively said "you should have told me". These meals are normally served without any special prompts, so I have no idea why he was so angry with me! The crew practically hid from all the crying babies and was avoiding our section of the plane for around six hours. No water served, no one checking on anything. Lastly, my suitcase was cracked and needs to be discarded. altogether: a horror."
Pros: "They didn't charge me for my surfboards which was great. It was my only check-on bag and under two meters and that should be free on every airline. Flight attendants were very nice and professional. I gave the food 5 stars based on other airline food, I'm not expecting restaurant quality at 37,000'. Movie selection was adequate for me, although I've seen some complaints in the reviews here."
Cons: "It was a little tricky checking in on my phone. The check email reminder didn't carry the info I needed to check in which required extra searching and copying and pasting. That experience could be streamlined. There was group confusion when being directed to board the plane on two flights."
Pros: "Both of our connecting flights were delayed thereby causing us to miss our final flight to LA. Now we are back in Munich where we started, waiting for a flight tomorrow."
Cons: "That we were told on the flight from Düsseldorf to Frankfort we would make our connecting and after running from Terminal A to Z, and seeing the plane on the Tarmac, we were told we were too late. And then the service associate at the Frankfort Lufthansa was incredibly rude, unhelpful and inaccurate."
Cons: "I booked through Kiwi.com and they couldn't handle my special food request (kosher meal). Somehow it didn't reach Lufthanza at all. As a result I had nothing to eat during the entire transatlantic flight."
Pros: "3 hour flight. Met my expectations. Boarding was easy and friendly crew.Athens airport was quite easy and comfrtable."
Cons: "Breakfast egg was rubbery. Small overhead space"
Cons: "Flight was late causing us to miss our connection to Las Vegas, NOT HAPPY"
Pros: "The crew made this flight in my experience. The crew was very professional and quick to respond."
Cons: "The late boarding due to technical and mechanical problems at the airport Lufthansa gate."
Cons: "I saw fly inside the cabin, disgusting."

Pros: "yes, seat is always ok , I'm not overweight"

Pros: "Although economy, it was pleasant and okay"
Cons: "I bought a business ticket but flew in economy from Tel Aviv to Vienna. I knew about it but the ticket cost was still high."
Pros: "I like the airline and the workers are great. I don't like when they charged for luggage that $60.00 each way like round trip is $120.00. It should be by weight is 50 lbs or 23 kilo for minimum and if it is over the weight than it should charged little more price."
Cons: "Buses to and from the plane. One driver left us in a full bus waiting for 20 minutes. When we arrived in Vienna, there was no bus to pick us up. We had to wait in the plane until one showed up."
Cons: "40 minutes waiting clearance for boarding and then for departure, for a flight 45 minutes in duration..."
Cons: "They couldn't find my name and I have to run around in the airport. I almost missed the flight, even though I was over 2 hours earlier."
Pros: "Great to be able to check in bags at the CAT railway station in the morning. Cabin crew were excellent- very friendly and helpful and did two drinks services. Austrian’s cabin crew sets them apart on European routes."

Cons: "Connecting flight tolerance and easy upgrade from one class to another."
Pros: "I had to pay 75 USD for 3.6 KG extra. Very annal"
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, business class seats that lay flat"
Cons: "Rang twice for attendants when I dropped my phone behind the seat. Instructed at beginning of flight to not attempt to retrieve an item behind the seat and to have an attendant helped. No one responded to me, so I got it myself. Wasn’t a big deal, but I don’t appreciate being soundly ignored"
Pros: "food was great. Slightly cold in cabin."
Cons: "had a narrow connecting flight VIE to MUC, VIE flight was delayed and had to catch MUC to IAD flight in less than 15 min. One luggage was missing at baggage claim, but as DC/ Baltimore is home, luggage arrived in 48 hrs. All is well that ends well."
Pros: "The flight staff was very attentive, professional, and polite. It seemed like they were always bringing the passengers things like snacks and drinks. We never felt like we needed anything. This was my first time flying to Europe and flying with Swiss. I will definitely choose them again!"
Cons: "I really can’t think of anything I didn’t like!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, seats were comfortable and boarding was prompt and fast."
Cons: "The food was not good at all and the entertainment selection was so limited. This was so weird because coming back from Vienna it was the complete opposite."
Cons: "Delayed longer than the flight time"
Pros: "Smooth ride, good breakfast and charming flight attendant."
Pros: "Enough legroom for economy"
Cons: "Basic food - poor in fight entertainment"
Pros: "The check in crew were great. They checked my overweight carry on with no problem for free Free alcohol"
Cons: "The food was not edible"
Pros: "Love the 767 seating layout with 2-3-2 seating. My hubby and I got 2 by the window/aisle. I like having 2 aisles for walking around. Pasta meal was much more tasty than the chicken meal."
Cons: "No free wi-fi. But, that wasn't a big deal. Just seemed unusual. If they did have it, they didn't let you know about it."
Cons: "Sweet or saulty 'Snack' is a joke"
Cons: "Food is appauling!"
Pros: "More legroom than some orher carriers even in regular economy seat, better quality of food, and faster service"
Cons: "Hot tee was only offered after hot meal service not before."
Cons: "My flight was Dec 11 at 8:00 from Budapest to Vienna. And from Viena I have to fly to Minsk. So on Dec 10 at 10:00 pm they send an e-mail to let me know that the flight from Budapest to Viena is canceled. I am glad that I decided to check my e-mail before I go to bad. So I try to call Austrian, but they work just from 8:00 am - 8:00 pm. I start to search all the info the site of Austrian, and find one phone number that seats be working 24 hours. So finally I got a person on the phone who was able to help me. ..."
Pros: "Flight crew & overall experience was positive. Meal & entertainment were good."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg room seats & were told we'd have exit row. We ended up in the middle section, which made it very uncomfortable for the overnight flight."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing seating for a 12 hour flight was not comfortable."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Cons: "Somewhat expensive for Vienna - Brussels one way route."
Pros: "Great experience, friendly crew!"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, on time"
Cons: "Crew's attitude for any request was snobby and harsh"
Pros: "The crew were very kind. The food was good."

Pros: "People at the desk didn't know or don't wanna say much why we have no plane"
Cons: "I arrived at Vienna on time but to Skopje we had no plans and we hade to wait till 13:40 to board"
Pros: "Everything was going to at"
Pros: "The plane crew was really nice always there for my needs."
Cons: "The seats were uncortable my chair was very wobbly."
Pros: "Professional and friendly staff"
Cons: "Outdated interior, media interface"
Cons: "Very confusing boarding procedures. In Vienna they would check you at the gate to make sure you are in but keep you standing for a long time. I am not sure what happened but food was barely edible: breakfast eggs were like rubber and Lunch was served with a tiny sandwich. For a 10 hour flight it was not even sufficient"
Cons: "Boarding in Vienna was completely unorganized. Received zero instruction from crew on new boarding information."
Pros: "Our seats 35 A & C were comfortable as they were to the back of the plane where it narrows to two seats per side row. Seemed like extra leg room. Crew was very friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth and uneventful. Good movie choices. Bathroom was clean and nearby. Plane seemed newer Boeing model. The City Airport Transport (CAT) train from the Vienna airport to city center was fantastic. We were able to check our luggage and get boarding passes where we boarded the CAT at the metro station and did not have to wait in line at the airport...wonderful system!"
Cons: "At the gate there was a line formed for a second passport check but it was not clear to passengers that they needed to go through this line. A significant number of us had SSSS on our boarding passes which required us to go through a second, more thorough, TSA security procedure. We had to remove shoes, take electronics including phones from cases, have purse contents gone through by personnel, be screened for residue, etc. Due to this process and the fact that we were not advised to stand in the line, a number of passengers went through the second security check at the last minute which caused our takeoff to be delayed. The pilot made up the time during the flight. I ordered low sodium meal which ended up to be the same food at both meals which was a disappointment - pasta with tomato, eggplant sauce."
Pros: "Unfortunately no good experience comes to my mind..... Only one! At boarding there was a Jewish girl, she was very nice and kind! I wish I could list here more positive!!!"
Cons: "Unfortunately the food was poor quality. You should pay attention to people who eat kosher and have an option available. Eventho I have marked it on my ticket I need kosher food it wasn't available. It is upsetting. It would be a must at every company, regardless of the service to have name tags for the employees!!! Mostly the flight attendants were kind, but as soon as i asked for something it seemed like they don't want to help or work at all. I understand I have traveled on the economy class but shouldn't make a difference how you treat the travelers. The pillows were dirty!!!!! Not only one, because I have asked for more......most of them! It is disgusting! Something must have been wrong with the headphones because the volume was on max when i tried to watch the move but barely could hear anything. I have flew with Lufthansa most of the time and in the future will chose them. Very disappointing that sooo many little things are interrupting a vacation."
Cons: "As I was flying from London Heathrow back to Vienna, I had a carry-on that was allowed on my flight with Austrian from Vienna to London. My carry-on weighed 8 kg, like is required by the rules. While boarding my flight, the woman at the counter told me my bag had to be checked because there were too many carry-ons on the flight. I asked her that I keep my bag because I had medication in there, and she didn't listen to me at all. She just kept repeating that i have to check my bag, and then took my bag from me and gave it to the baggage crew there. I didn't want to make a huge scene because the flight is only 2 hours and I hoped i Could deal without my medication during that time, but I found it incredibly, incredibly rude and awful to not listen to a passenger."
Cons: "The website is a horror, particularly from an iPad. Trying to web checkin was an arduous battle. Obviously the consumer is the least important factor in the lack of managing the product. I avoid Austrian for that simple reason. Crew polite. Pilot informative."
Pros: "Quick boarding and exit off the plane"
Cons: "No little foot rest , no blanket in the winter"
Pros: "No problems."
Pros: "Great service except Vienna airport is too chaotic and baggage wrapping cost 12 euros per piece."
Pros: "complimentary chocolates are excellent"
Cons: "my luggage was one day late"
Cons: "There were no air vents, which made for a hot flight."
Pros: "Ground crew was very helpful. Nothing remarkable about the flight"
