Could do better on the choice of entertainment and food.

Excellent staff service on flight 762 inbound to Delhi from Newark. Very professional and sweet cabin crew!

First time flying with Lufthansa. This airline is definitely one of the best. I like that all the lavatories are on a lower level so there’s no people queuing up on the aisle and no smell coming from the lavatories.

Air circulation seemed insufficient. No ability to adjust. Thank you.

Aug 21, 2018

I was very pleased with the service overall but very disappointed that Lufthansa lost all our 3 checked pieces of luggage and there was no online way to track where they were. We retrieved our luggage 4 days after arrival at our final destination ...
