Lufthansa - what are they like?

Anyone flown with Lufthansa before?

Just wondered if they are decent or not as they have flights available which I am considering whether to book.

They are great. We flew to Florida via Frankfurt in August 2018. The staff are very good and the food was great for plane food. The only thing is to not leave it to the last minute to move on to your terminal when you are at Frankfurt, because it took us about half and hour. It was only that my daughter kept saying lets go, that we went otherwise we would have been really close to missing the flight. I would definitely book them again.

The flights I am looking at has a 2 hour window between flights. Do you think that will be enough time?

2 hours at Frankfurt is ok (both for outbound and inbound)

consider that 1h20 minutes is cutting it short at this airport.

We always use FRA and Lufthansa as we mainly have no choice from the airports in close range (lyon and geneva) and we fly indirect via FRA
very big airport. The last few years they seemed to always change their terminals and have construction. Every year, it was a different procedure, different corridors, different security checkpoints. And it always took even more time

regarding the flights, it's always been very good for the transatlantic flights. nice crew, nice food, nice selection of inflight movies

we always flew on the 747s (except once from MIA on a A380)
but it seems they want to do away with the big birds.

We've flown with them and couldn't fault anything! I'm also looking at booking with them for next year.

I’ve only flown short haul with them and I was very impressed. Glad to see the long haul reviews are just as good.

We should have been flying with them next week. I read a lot of reviews before booking and they were all good, and their prices were the best I saw for school summer holidays.

I almost came to regret it when they were refusing to give refunds for cancelled flights (only offering vouchers) but they did refund us in the end. I *think* I’d book with them again, once this is all over and there shouldn’t be any risk of getting stuck with a cancelled flight and no refund!

We too were supposed to fly this summer, refunded in 10 days from cancellation.

We were lucky enough to get a really good deal with Lufthansa a few years ago , flying business via Frankfurt. Amazing experience ... wouldn’t hesitate to book with them again. Frankfurt airport is huge , so def take heed of where your departure gate is .
