Ever since Lufthansa allied with United (the worse airline in the skies) they have dragged themselves down to United’s level.

Yesterday I made a reservation from Los Angeles to Frankfurt, Germany the flight I would have liked was $1,222.00 so I booked a later flight for $954.00. Today the flight I wanted is $954.00 so I called Lufthansa and ask if I could change to the earlier flight. They told me there would be a charge to make the change of $250.00 per ticket because it was just over 24 hours. I spoke to supervisor, Dave and he said there was nothing he could do because these rules are made with their alliance (United once again). The tickets are non refundable so I am stuck this time. However I have been flying Lufthansa every year that I have gone to Europe for at least the last ten years but this will be the last time I ever fly Lufthansa. I haven’t flown United for about 15 years since the last time they screwed me so it will be the same with Lufthansa.
My first flight on Lufthansa from Brussels-Frankfurt-Singapore and here's my review:

1) Seat is uncomfortably hard and not easy to even catch a nap on.
2) My pull-out table cannot be deployed and I had to eat while balancing the food on my lap.
3) This is a long flight and there's no personal entertainment system and it was impossible to watch anything on the small shared TV from my first row without spraining my neck!
4) The fare is equal to or more expensive than other airlines offering superior services e. g. Singapore Airlines, BA, Quantas or SAS.
5) Lastly, there is no number for you to contact Lufthansa for providing customer feedback. I wonder how serious they value customer feedback. I had to write and fax my feedback to them and it's been a few days. I can only hope to hear from them (I will provide an update here once I hear from them).
The only positive note on my trip is the crew. They were pleasant and nice, comparable to Singapore Airlines.
very bad service by Lufthansa
VANCOUVER, FRANKFURT -- I took Lufthansa from Munich to Vancouver, transferred from Frankfurt. Since I was going to snowboard in Whistler, I took a big burton snowboard pully bag with me. It was not problem to check in Munich.

Change of planes in Munich Germany
Bags checked through for me
From Milan transport arranged to Bergamo airport and fly to Tel Aviv
While stuck in passport control and again through security Lufthansa left with my luggage but not me
I was lied to. Repeatedly
I believe they over sold that flight and resold my seats
My luggage was not in Milan when I got there telephone numbers they have me
Did not work. Lufthansa customer service in Milan yuk!
I am out prepaid airfare and lodging not to mention my luggage
Do not use this airline. They are not customer service. Try British Airways for a refreshment!!
I flew to Germany several times on Lufthansa and found them to be one of the best in the business in all categories, from booking the ticket to the destination without a hitch, I just wish they would ditch United Airlines. 2 Replies - Latest reply on 05/13/2012Add reply

During all these years I used United Mileage Plus program to collect miles from all Lufthansa flights.
During last Flight in Nov/December for reason unknown to me, Lufthansa opened Miles account for my self and credited all 38,000 miles to their program.
The only thing I did differently this time was using online check in program that I never used before.
Once I realized what happened I called Lufthansa to release my miles but Lufthansa refused saying I can not move the miles between partner programs!!!
After about 15 calls to both US and Germany, I was finally told that I need to close my Lufthansa account by written request and that my Miles will be annulled. Lets' hope that United will be able to pull them in after account closure.
Not to mention I need these miles to keep my 1K status with United.
What a mess.

They had 2 hour and 45 minutes between my flights. How much more time do you need?
I am business traveler and I am left just with my laptop. I can't continue my business trip since I do not have any cloths!!!!
This is my second luggage lost in 10 days and both by Lufthansa!!! My previous luggage was delivered after 3 days!!!
Lufthansa do not have any workable Customer Service and their response was not on a subject or informative. Lost luggage tracing system is not responding too... They did not know where I was and where I was traveling to….
My recommendation: This is not airline for business class travelers and airline without any Customer Service services!!! This is a disgrace for Germany and aviation industry!
