Lufthansa introduces city ratings


New online application lets travellers rate LH destinations in ten categories.


Thanks to the new online “City Ratings” application, Lufthansa customers can now rate the airline’s worldwide destinations, share their personal recommendations with other passengers or find inspiration for their next holiday based on other people’s experiences, ideas and travel tips. And they can find answers to questions like these: Which city offers a fascinating range of cultural events and activities? Which sights and tourist attractions make the hearts of young and old alike beat faster? Which major city has the most tempting array of shopping options? And where can the best culinary highlights be enjoyed?


The new application, which can be accessed via, will enable users to share their first-hand experiences and impressions – a valuable source of information for travellers before they embark on their journey.


In order to use this function and give Lufthansa destinations worldwide a star rating, all you have to do is log on to and submit a brief personal profile. You can then award up to five stars in each of the ten categories listed, which include “Sightseeing”, “Family” “Eating & Drinking” and “Nightlife”. Users are free to decide whether they wish to award a star rating for just one category or for all ten. The ratings are added together and then automatically averaged out to produce the city rankings, which provide further orientation for anyone planning a trip. Moreover, if passengers have special tips or personal recommendations for other travellers, they can also submit a text that can be easily passed on to other users.
