Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Mid night snack can be improved, it’s too small a portion."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, attentive crew; good amount of storage in business class; very good food with an excellent variety."
Pros: "Seating was fine"
Cons: "If flight cost less lol"
Cons: "my original connection time or lay by was reduced to 50min. Didn’t get an express passage through security check point and my gate on this fateful day was 58A the furthest away after security check - so a long run for me and just made it to the queue 10min to flight"
Cons: "Seat cushion could have been softer"
Pros: "The crew is amazing but that is to expect since it was a Japanese crew that operated from Narita."
Cons: "The vegetarian food was terrible; unless they mistook my request and did a vegan option. The first meal was an o-k noodle stirfry type of thing but the breakfast was a porridge that had no flavor. Hopefully it was a misunderstanding but worth noting."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great, the food was great, the staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It took a while for them to serve the first meal and I don't know that there was a need for a second meal. I would have preferred to sleep."
Pros: "The crew was not amazing and the plane was ok. Our flight to LAX NH106 was delayed 6 hours. We slept in the airline lounge and given minimal compensation."
Cons: "Place the passengers in a hotel rather than have us us crammed in a lounge where you can hear angry passengers arguing."
Pros: "Crew was prompt and courteous Entertainment choice was good"
Cons: "1. The seat width is small for comfortable sleeping 2. Choice of non-Japanese food can be enhanced 3. Flight boarding was delayed beyond announced delayed departure also"
Pros: "It was a quick flight, and as it left at night Japan time, I was able to actually sleep 7 hours or so of the full flight."
Cons: "Asked specifically at the ticketing counter not to be seated in a non-emergency row. Were seated in an emergency row. For a 12 hour flight with seats that don't recline and nothing the on-board staff could do about the ticket counter's negligence and bad faith other than apologize. Seated upright for an overnight flight (for the second time on the same trip) for 12 hours. Not a pleasant experience. Had a feeling ANA would be bush league. This trip confirmed those suspicions. It wasn't the crew's fault (though they, unfortunately bore the brunt of my displeasure) so much as the counter's fault, but airlines charging what they are shouldn't be putting passengers or crew in this position. The ticket counter folks literally mislead us. They specifically told us that these were not emergency row seats and that we would have reclining seats and seatback displays in front of us like everyone else. The entire reason I asked is because we got stuck in the last row on the way in with seats that don't recline, which blows for a 12 hour red-eye flight. Instead we got seats that did not recline and a fold out screen that came from the right-hand arm rest. Not the end of the world if one had no choice, but certainly not what I paid for and certainly not what the ticketing counter people stated we were getting (under specific inquiry about the very point). The ticketing counter in particular seems to be skeevy, at best. To the detriment of their own crew, who is left apologizing for things they can do nothing about. As stated, this is a bush league international carrier. Avoid unless you love sleepless nights crossing the international dateline..."
Pros: "Their service"
Pros: "Service, staff, and food were all above-average as compared to other companies with whom I've flown"
Cons: "Spacing was a little bit cramped, and side-to-side leg-room was so cramped that my neighbor fell asleep, spread his legs and suddenly had no where to escape. Made sleeping difficult/impossible."
Pros: "Packed in like sardines with no ability to recline for a red eye flight of 10h was excruciating. Food was not good on this flight though the kids meal was a nice touch."
Cons: "Seats, food"
Cons: "Everything the whole team was great."
Pros: "Meals were decent. Staff friendly. Had no problems and was able to sleep a bit."
Cons: "The economy seats on my plane were strange, they didn't really recline but rather the bottom part of the seat moves forward to make your body less vertical."
Pros: "From start to Finish from ticketing to baggage claim we received Premier Customer Service !!!!!"
Pros: "Staff is awesome"
Cons: "The seats in economy are ok and not a good comfortable seat.. and needs improvement on food menu choices. But no problem boarding, the attendants are courteous and nice.."

Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "The quality of your aircraft. Clean, modern, plenty of leg room."

Cons: "cancelled, hard to rebook flight, staff unhelpful, rebooked on worse flight. very bad experience."
Pros: "I enjoyed the hospitality and attention to detail."
Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Pros: "This was my first time flying ANA (LAX to Haneda and back) and I have to admit it was surprisingly great. I am a pretty tall guy and found the room for my feet in economy to be more than adequate even though i found myself in a middle seat both flights. The flight attendants were extremely attentive, even as my flights were both overnight/red-eyes. The selection of movies available at each seat was pretty good and included your standard Hollywood stuff along with a decent selection of Japanese film, television, and various documentaries. Whether or not subtitles are available for non-Japanese speakers for Japanese language media was kind of hit and miss (I actually did browse around quite a bit), but I was impressed nonetheless. I would warn some western based travelers that they may not find the food to be all that appetizing. I chose the Japanese style option both flights (rice, miso, salad, fish), however I know that had I had any of my family members along for the flight they would have gone with the international option and they probably wouldn't have enjoyed it all that much."
Pros: "The staff is very nice."
Cons: "The exonomy seats."
Pros: "I'm always in awe at how the crew operates, everything is tidy and the services are efficient and utmost hospitality. Look forward to flying with ANA again."
Pros: "Crews' performance was good."
Cons: "Full capacity ! Because of CODE SHARING ? = One Airplane for 2-Airline's Customers."

Pros: "Enough room for relax, I love this one"
Pros: "Enough room for relax"
Pros: "Comfort... enough room for relax"
Pros: "I feel like home"
Cons: "The crew smail"
Cons: "Felt very cramped, seats very close together, headphone jack comes out of the side of the armrest, should come out the front of the armrest, I busted the ends off of two of my headphone cables."
Pros: "Incredible service"
Cons: "Touch screens were a bit glitchy. Was not able to adjust brightness, and volume kept readjusting by itself."
Pros: "Food, crew, and entertainment were great. They give you snacks and drinks right away."
Cons: "Elbow room is tight so pray you don't sit next to someone on the larger side. And the seats and tables look well used."
Cons: "No individual air conditioning. Centralized AC got hot. Old plane 777 Once I got to lax, there were no guide on getting to domestic connecting flight (united). After getting pampered with awesome ANA service, you get slapped with horrible united customer service."
Pros: "Very clean plane. Nice and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Lots of leg room. The seat doesn't till back, but instead the seat slides forward. I wouldnt mind to fly again with ANA. Terrific entertainment system and movies."
Cons: "Minor thing is the headset, which doesn't provide the best sound, but it will do. Food options can improve"
Pros: "ANA airline was great! I love the service and the crew was very friendly, answers questions with a smile. I will definitely choose this airline for my travels, I know how they treat the coustomers."

Pros: "Very friendly and attentive service, good movie selection on new screens."
Cons: "TSA-style pat-down at the gate in Narita before allowed to board."
Pros: "I liked the friendly staff, the movie selection was also great!"
Cons: "The food wasn't great and they fed us as soon as we boarded and right before we landed. There was about 8 hours in between and we were starving!"
Pros: "The whole Business experience on SQ"
Cons: "During the same trip I discovered 2 different arrangements of the Business Class cabin on Singapore Airlines A350, SQ469 CMB-SIN, and SQ036 SIN-LAX. On the SQ036, I occupied seat 15 A (mono, aisle-window): I did not understand the reasoning behind this layout: Seat facing straight the front of the aircraft, but not enough space to stretch the legs, and limited height for the footrest, feet getting hurled against a ceiling very quickly, and also footrest only on one side = one foot. The deep cavity, that is probably meant to house the lie-flat disposition, is at a 45° angle with the general direction of the seat. I am 77 and not in any way a contortionist. I decided that the best course of action was to remain seated for the duration of the 14:30 hours, flight without extending my legs. Maybe the crew could have explained how the passenger is supposed to fit into that weird design, but I did not ask, afraid that the demonstration might reawaken chronic shoulder and hip pain. I would be glad to read (not test) how this configuration is supposed to convey the sense of comfort expected from a Business Class ticket. It did nothing of the kind for me."
Pros: "One of several preferred airlines when flying to Asia. Really enjoy their service, and it's wonderful to wake up to many beauties in view!"
Pros: "They passed by me when they served the meals because they thought I had it already which it was someone behind me who got his meal since he had a special meal request. So I ended up to talk to them that I haven’t had my meal yet. It was embarrassing moment for me. They seemed thinking that I lied to them."
Cons: "They are well trained crews so I have no better ideas about improvements"
Cons: "In flight food service by cabin crew was spotty, sometimes they gave you coffee with dinner , sometime not, they are very forgetful. Please improve on this issue."
Pros: "All crew members are very friendly and helpful, good service."
Cons: "All over flight i feel good time, i don't feel boring all friendly staff, good service choice of food i like."
Pros: "Staff was great as usual"
Cons: "Many entertainment monitors including my row of seats were stuck for a while. The “please fasten your seatbelt” was on the screen and made the monitor unusable for the first 1hr of the flight"
Pros: "Yes and yes"
Cons: "Not sure because I have never had a better experience."
Cons: "Entertainment including games such as backgammon, black Jack, and poker are not available although they are on every other airline I used with high quality game programs that are clos to live games"
Pros: "Service was excellent!"
Cons: "Softer seats and more movies"
Pros: "Perfect timing"
Cons: "We had to go through security after coming in from international and I went through a biometric scanner which I’ve done 100’s of Times I was very unnecessarily felt up for 10 minutes. I had shorts and a T-shirt on, and was pretty sure after the 1st round of groping that there was nothing there"
Pros: "Wow they did not disappoint flight attendants Overdid themselves with amazing service planes are super clean and entertainment systems are state of the art great job Singapore Airlines can’t wait to fly with you again you definitely earned your #1 ranking"

Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, variety of entertainment (sceen) , good food options and friendly and courteous service."
Cons: "1 hour delay of departure"
Pros: "The lunch and dinner menu was excellent"
Cons: "more bathrooms."
Pros: "The trip was horrible we have to sit separately three places."
Cons: "First experience with Singapore where the crew made a negative impression. As soon as the plane pulled away from the terminal, crew members seemed rushed and frantic, literally running back and forth from Economy Premium to the galley gathering items. Approximately every 7-10 minutes, crew members would be running back and forth next to my seat with heavy foot steps, which would wake me up. I also noticed that certain crew members were shouting at passengers to get their attention instead of lowering themselves to be heard. One flight attendant almost spilled orange juice on me because she turned around too fast trying to serve drinks. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed, or if it was the influence of a certain crew boss, but something was definitely wrong."
Pros: "everything good"
Cons: "need new toilet"
Pros: "I booked regular economy and flew to Tokyo that way, but put a bid in for premium economy for the flight home and got it. It's not a big upgrade (bigger display panel, a little more leg room, seat tilt and it has a leg rest) but those things made the flight for me."
Cons: "I don't have much on the down side front aside from the usual "would like more leg room" and "more seat tilt" so nothing new to report"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was really hot."
Cons: "There was not much leg room in the seatings"
Pros: "SQ did a great job again. I plan to fly them in the future."
Cons: "My only criticism is that the flight attendants didn’t pass through the cabin with water during the 9 hour flight."
Pros: "All the crews were friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Hindi movies with subtitles..."
Pros: "Christmas decorations, service, attitude of staff"
Pros: "Everything great personnel"
Pros: "I ordered a Indian vegeterian meal. It was very good. I feel bad about all the playin cups, and garbage that gets wasted. Please recycle everything."

Pros: "ending meal was very late like an hour or less before landing"

Pros: "Not much turbulence"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and good service."

Pros: "Ice cream for snack? Heck YES. Variety of meals to choose from (i got hindu meal)"
Cons: "On the way to Korea, a stewardess keep taking my water away thinking i was done with it. It was very nice of her she tries to take trashes away, but it wasn't trash for me."
Pros: "The attendants were helpful, smiling and friendly. The entire time We flew with an 18 month old and they came looking for us before he flight to help us carry our stuff on board. They gave her a toy, asked for her name, and checked on us often. They also gave my husband and I an option for early food service so that one of us could help our daughter eat. The movie selection was great. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. And we arrive half an hour early both directions!"
Pros: "Flew business class to SE Asia and experienced great service, fast check-in & boarding, terrific seating and amenities, and outstanding meals. Came home well rested."
Cons: "On my trip to Japan, the staff was incredibly rude. Horrible commendations. The controls didn't work. And the desert had mold in it."
Pros: "Attention to customer service and needs"
Cons: "Couldn't use my own headphones to watch movies"
Pros: "Great food!!"
Pros: "The graciousness of sraff, entertainment options, cleanliness of the aircraft. Always willing to make adjustments to accommodate."
Cons: "Its unfortunate that your staff sometimes do not get treated with the respect they deserve from a guest"
Pros: "The staff was amazing and attentive. My surfboards arrived safe and sound... And on time. I will most definitely fly Singapore Airlines again, as often as I can. Thank you."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "We were supposed to fly back to Los Angeles from Tokyo on Wednesday, August 24th. We got to Tokyo Narita a little later than planned due to the Narita Express train being delayed. I had received emails that our flight had changed gates, and was then delayed, but when my sister and I went to check into our flight, we were told we were unable to board because it was too late. I thought it was absurd because the flight had not even started boarding, and I had gotten an email saying it was delayed. We tried to reason with them, but they would not let us on the flight. It was imperative that we got back to Los Angeles on Wednesday, but all our plans were ruined due to them bumping us off the flight. My sister had a connecting flight to Boston, which she then had to reschedule and was charged for. We were stuck another night in Tokyo, where we had to spend money on a hotel. The Singapore Airlines attendants eventually informed us that we could get on a flight the next day. This delayed us by 24 hours, which was highly inconvenient. It was also especially unnecessary since due to the flight being delayed, we would have absolutely been able to make it. I do not appreciate being bumped off of a flight due to airlines wanting to make more money, especially being stuck overseas. Its not like it was a domestic flight where we could just hop on another one in the next few hours, this totally derailed all of our plans. I do not appreciate the inflexibility of the Singapore Airlines agents, and this is not an experience that makes me want to recommend flying with Singapore Airlines. I appreciate that they did not charge us, however it was a major inconvenience that could have simply been avoided by better customer service and understanding."
Pros: "I have always enjoyed flying on Singapore Airlines. There were no delays on my connecting flight coming out of Tokyo to Los Angeles. The huge plane was like flying in a small "transportable town.""
Cons: "I had a long connection wait in Tokyo, but that was not too bad since I got a great price on the round trip ticket - less than $700!"
Pros: "I like that I could check in 2 suitcase and able to choose my sitting when it's available."
Cons: "This trip was not quite as excellent as my flights on Singapore Airlines usually are; however, I cannot say for sure there was much that airline staff could have done to change this. A great deal of turbulence earlier in the flight made it difficult to enjoy the food. Also, there was a sewage-like smell that wafted through the air periodically - this could have been a child in the surrounding seats, though. Both of these issues seem difficult for the airline staff to address, however, unless the smell actually came from a problem with the ventilation system. The staff was exceptionally helpful and good-natured, though, which made the biggest difference. Thank you so much."
Pros: "I loved the entertainment, the kind staff, and the extras they gave out to try to make us as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "My boyfriend is very tall, 6'6. On the flights to and from, even though he was on he aisle side seat, it was very difficult for him to have enough room for his legs, thus making my space that much less. In the future, I think we would benefit from booking either the seat behind us for him that had more leg room, or the seats in front of us that were the first seats of all rows."
Pros: "Although my flight was canceled they quickly found me a flight on another airline and provided me with a hotel room for the night"
Cons: "Awesome experience on Qatar Airways... will definitely fly with them again!!!"
Pros: "Every things was great ."
Pros: "Qatar Airlines treats you very nicely and doesn’t try to charge for little extras. They include the nice extras as part of your travel experience with them. I highly recommend Qatar!"
Pros: "So many carriers have cut back on so many things, our flight on Qatar Airlines felt like a throwback to the days when flying was enjoyable. Everything about our flight was better than we have come to expect from most other airlines. To highlight one surprise - the in-flight meals were high quality."
Pros: "Crew was nice and attentive"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Friendly crews. Excellent food. Great service. On time arrival."
Cons: "They could provide hotel for transit passengers with long layovers."
Cons: "Just had a hard time finding flight attendants. Every time I went to the back of the plane, half a dozen of them were sitting around and chatting it up. Felt guilty for asking for water. Not the service that I expected from Qatar Airways. All 4 flights were a struggle to get proper service."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "I advise Qatar Airways"
Pros: "Liked comfort and srvice"
Cons: "Doha to Lahore flight plane was a bit older than Edinburgh was new and exciting"
Pros: "Food was quite good along with service"
Cons: "No entertainment or tv monitors - 6 hours of no movies!!!"
Pros: "Movies and onboard games were good. So was the food. Crew took good care of us and the toilets were clean"
Cons: "We couldn't lower the seats backwards. It was horror for eight hours. And one little tv didn't work but they gave my wife a diferent, better seat because of that. We had a long layover, 12 hours, and they said we didn't have rights for anything. So we went to the city on our one because we didn't want to go on organized tour that we need to pay extra money"
Pros: "Crew was not mean"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, entertainment screen had poor picture quality, eggs were black, stank + inedible, long bathroom lines , a child screamed most of the flight, no internet, couldn’t change phone, checked bags damaged - handles ripped off!!!"
Pros: "The crew were fab"
Cons: "i did not like the baggage policy for cabin baggage, where i am not allowed to carry my personal item and a carry on separately."
Pros: "Good attention from cabin crew and good food"
Pros: "While my Qatar airways flight from Houston to Doha (# 714) was almost perfect, flight #1335 from Doha to Nairobi was a huge disappointment."
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing, food ran out before i got any breakfast, the IFE system for my seat didn't work,"
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Passengers in the back seat kept shaking my seat. I told them to stop, but they kept doing that."
Cons: "Did not make this flight."
Cons: "Boarding process, Smart Phone App, food quality, Announcemebts, Time to unboard the plane, flight information displays at Doha are not easy to find the flight info"
Pros: "Very impressed with the service. Very friendly staff"
Cons: "My entertainment unit on the Perth Doha leg never worked even after several resets"
Pros: "crew was lovely and plane was very new"
Cons: "food quality is not very good: sometimes it was hard to see what it actually was and it tasted like that too. headrest in the new plane is not comfortable at all as it is rigid and can only be moved up and down."
Pros: "Loved the array of film choices. The food was lovely and the service was fabulous. Lovely warm blankets ."
Cons: "Haven't made it yet due to schedule change. 12 hour wait in airport."
Pros: "The visit to the lounge is always refreshing. The service at the shower area is great however policing of people using phones in the quiet zone should be enforced"
Cons: "The good got used a bus gate which is acceptable however this typically takes additional time if there is a connection flight"
Pros: "The service on board is excellent"
Pros: "Good service but need to improve food quality and quantity."
Cons: "this time food was not that good which when traveled before."
Pros: "Great flight with good food and crew."
Pros: "Everything except food"
Pros: "Late night flight and new cabin design was great. Crew was friendly and quick to respond to requests."
Cons: "Entertainment options need to be expanded. Mouthwash should be added in toilet."
Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"
Cons: "USD 20 wi fi and you only get 200 MB seems a bit antiquated"
Pros: "Nothing. Despite booking Qatar Airways for both legs the transfer distance is incredibly far. Only just made connecting flight!"
Cons: "Why does it take 2 hours to get all passengers on board? Why only one exit/ entry point to board/ disembark for an Airbus 440? The mist inefficient organization of passenger logistics you can imagine Hopeless airports..useless Airlines"
Pros: "Courteous, helpful and professional crew members."
Cons: "No internet service on long international flight. Boarding process for business class could be better."
Pros: "Great take off and landing. Nice comfort packet, blanket, and pillow Good service and spacious seating in economy class."
Pros: "We were late for our originally flight, got to LAX 15 minutes after check-in was closed, although we checked in online prior, but due to 4th of July weekend the freeway was very heavy traffic. So we ended up going back next day with the supervisor's incredible allowance, offer. I got very emotional when she told us our option. Thank you. Unfortunatley I didn't get her name, due to our shock))"
Pros: "Had a good experience , comfortable check in , boarding , seating and polite crew . Good part was the flight was on time and on couple of occasions before time arrival . Great entertainment options in the flight ."
Cons: "I had requested vegiterian food but they were short of veg food options . they did not have enough veg food on board from Doha to Nagpur . also it would be great if they considered more interesting menu ."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "The service given from the crew from the moment i checked in was amazing. The flight was smooth and went well. The music and movie selection could be a little bit better. The food was good, but the portion was small and it feels limited. But overall it was amazing experience considering i got a really good price for this flight! Thank you, Qatar."
Cons: "The food portion was small and feels like during the flight the food or i might say snack was limited. The music and movies selection needs a little update and upgrade. I was pretty upset that from LA to Denpasar both the aircrafts didnt have wifi."
Pros: "Boarding experience was very good. Crew were attentive for the most part."
Cons: "I get the whole more leg room argument, but sitting on a piece of plastic with almost no padding for 14 hours is nothing but torture! Food was average at best."
Pros: "The crew and the airline was a great experience."
Cons: "I wish there was more leg space between the seats."
Cons: "Expect more then OK from Qatar."
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew"
Pros: "Overall flight was pretty good"
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as the other 3 legs of the trip (Houston-Doha, Doha-Kathmandu and Bengaluru-Doha) The hand rests on these planes didn't go all the way up making it less comfortable to be travelling on a 16 hour flight with a toddler."
Pros: "Great flights. Lots of room in economy, which is needed for a 14 hour flight. Also excellent personal entertainment system in the seat. This was my first flight on Qatar airlines. I will definitely book on Qatar again."
Cons: "It was too hot in the plane."
Cons: "Suggest online check-in providing change seat options"
Pros: "Yes for both."
Cons: "Dirty bathrooms, freezing cold cabin, paper thin blankets provided"
Pros: "Seat is small"
Cons: "Crew was so busy and no smile"
Pros: "Friendly staff and very accomodating"
Cons: "Did not enjoy the food choice, tv needed repairs"
Pros: "only the deffective TV particularly seat 30f"
Cons: "deffetive TV..i just sleep thru out my flght"
Pros: "Good seat - request granted"
Cons: "They gave menu only to find out they ran out of what I wanted. Don’t even show or hand out menu so passengers won’t expect."
Cons: "Everything is fine"
Pros: "CX882, seat 44k would not recline. Made my journey a bit uncomfortable."
Cons: "Our flight from HK to LAX we were told that the pilot refused to wait for us even if we arrived in HK from cebu at 11:35 of July 29 and our flight to lax was at 12:05 .Cathay couldn’t do anything about it. We were billeted in a hotel far from the airport with free breakfast but no lunch was provided and the earliest flight they could give us was scheduled at 16:35 of Juy 30. Upon returning to the airport I asked a cathay staff regarding provisions for lunch but I was told there’s none.Overall our trip both to and from LAX were very uncomfortable and inconvenient. I hope Cathay will do something better in situations like we encountered. As of this writing I and my husband are still at HK airport waiting for our flight to LAX."
Cons: "It was a long delay, about an hour. The airline kept silence until too late. They gave us a blanket, some refreshments and where to have breakfast. Those who made a fuss were taken to hotel. Many others stayed at the airport and had a terrible night."
Pros: "Very courteous and helpful with handicapped people like my mom."
Cons: "I can’t find a number to call to report an item left on the plane, and I would seriously pay a couple hundred extra dollars to any airline that offered a child-free flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants in the airplane, both going and coming back to my destination were very nice. I really appreciated their hard work and attentiveness."
Cons: "At the HK airport the lady attending the check in, I believe her name is Tammy, I could not understand exactly what she was asking me to do because her voice was so low and her English was not clear. When I did not comply to what she was asking she very rudely did what she was asking me to do yet I could not hear or understand her. She even rolled her eyes. Very uncalled for and rude."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Why do people fly with infants?"
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "Food was great, and the business class 777 seats are a delight. And the captain shuts up through the entire flight --- no interrupting your sleep or movie with stupid observations that no-one wants to hear."
Cons: "The quality of the screens (crappy slow resistive touchscreens) is completely unacceptable for business class in 2018. China Airlines screens are VASTLY superior in their hardware, their speed, and the quality of their UI. And running an ad before EVERY movie --- in business?! Talk about an airline having no sense of class. That's a cheap, stupid move."
Cons: "Food options"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Seat is hard to adjust."
Pros: "My husband fainted twice and they are so nice to accommodate my husband to the first class section so he can rest and sleep well! Amazing crew and I thank each and every one of them for their concerns and kind heart!"
Pros: "I like the service and the foods are so delicious."
Cons: "The charging port when I was on my way to Hong Kong from Los Angeles, it wasn't working so that's the only thing that I didn't like."
Cons: "Everything was good except for the meal part. I was seated at the last and by the time I had my turn to choose from the menu, I was left with just one choice because all the passengers ahead of me got to choose first. Would be great if Cathay would accommodate extra meals on their flights."
Cons: "Terriable service"
Cons: "Food ,service , aircraft"
Cons: "Limited help in assisting passengers who missed the connection"
Pros: "Overall is good."
Pros: "Friendly staff and helped me."
Cons: "Very delayed"
Cons: "It's not pleasant traveling in economy which is true for all airlines now a days."
Pros: "On time performance"
Cons: "Food and crew members was awful i never had such a bad experience with any airline I would never flight with this airline anymore"
Cons: "Food was good but could be better. Healthier, purer"
Pros: "Had 4 pairs of eye glasses taken from my golf bag. ! prescribtion, i pair reading and 2 pairs of sunglasses. bag was left open and contents spilled into the golf carry bag. Why did this happen and who did it??"
Pros: "We were really taken care of and had a great experience. From the cleanliness of the plane, to the kind staff and generous in flight services/accommodations, we were very pleased. We look forward to flying Cathay Pacific again!"
Pros: "I was seated around a number of sick people - and it was a middle seat so hard to get up since there was pretty much no space"
Pros: "American pilots"
Pros: "The business class seating is all lay flat and all seats are isle seats."
Cons: "A medical emergency required us to land in Vancouver delaying our flight into Lax by 1-1/2 hours. I missed my next flight and lost my 1st class seat. No help was offered."
Pros: "The chair size. The movie"
Cons: "Stewardess in my isle was not friendly. Don't have enough supply of bottle water. HK airport won't allow drink to be brought on the plane even though it was bought at the airport. Hard cushion on chair."
Pros: "Everything was great. The crew was polite and helpful throughout my flights. The food was good, tasty and hot! Had some newer movies available."
Pros: "seats were wider and more legroom in economy section, better food than other airlines, crew were helpful, entertainment system offered good selection."
Cons: "one entertainment system kept freezing and did not work for the last 4 hours of the flight, toilet need more frequent cleaning."
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "The sound did not work for my video, the food was not good, the seat was uncomfortable, and my stewardess was rude."
Cons: "my luggage didn't go with me"
Pros: "Friendly and hard working staff. Clean aircraft. Decent movie choices. Gluten free meal available, though I can't make a selection for GF Meal + Seafood (pescatarian). I get chicken or meat in GF, and I don't eat either."
Cons: "Boarding is not by row numbers -- this is chaotic with long snaking line. Aircraft Toilets get dirty quickly with urine on the commode and the floor. There needs to be a quick drying wet disinfection system. You must enable Gluten Free meals to come with 3 choices - Veg, Non Veg, Seafood only."
Cons: "We had to go through the security twice. One the bags we scanned and the other before getting into the airline. Was a waste of time."
Pros: "Not like but was okay with the leg room, comfort and entertainment on board the aircraft."
Cons: "The water they were serving was not bottled and tasted like restroom water. However when I brushed my teeth in the restroom, it did not have that horrid smell and taste as the drinking water did. Two inflight staff was rude, Didn't get their names but both ladies blocked passengers way when they were trying to get back to their seats and rolled their eyes at a lot of passengers for various requests. Completely not professional!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "During COVID there was little attempt to distance passengers during security checks, boarding and onboard. Crew did not inforce mask policy. Fellow passengers were inconsiderate, loud, littered just throwing food wrappers and trash on the ground - crew did nothing."
Pros: "I was fortunate the person in front didn’t lean back"
Cons: "On Swiss website I added Rehe preference for a lactose free meal — but none were on the plane. The economy seats are close enough together I needed to hold my book to the side to read."
Pros: "My husband was on a business trip and his company booked him in business class. Economy was overbooked they cave me a free upgrade so I could sit with him!"
Cons: "Cost of extra bag. Also size limit for overhead carryon"
Pros: "Great. Very smooth and comfortable!"
Cons: "Same reason as above."
Pros: "When you lose your phone in the business class seat and a technician goes to find it once you land in Zurich and the day that it has miraculously disappeared there isn’t much to like at all about Swiss Airlines. Swiss Airlines isn’t going to hear the end of this is they don’t agree to replace my son’s phone. My husband is a lawyer and we are prepared to bring this to the public."
Cons: "My son dropped his phone in business class seat and the ground staff technician claimed it wasn’t there. Theft at its best! Swiss Air better take responsibility for their shady staff and agree to replace my don’s Phone promptly or we will take this to the public eye and courts. I’m sure we could get a big class action suit."
Pros: "From start to finish, Sevdije was in great hands. She had to be in a wheelchair, and there were three connecting flights in countries where she doesn't speak the language. It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
Cons: "The screens would freeze for all the people around. The connecting flight had 50 minutes, however there was another security check and gate was quite far, everything had to be done in a hassle and we were nervous throughout regarding missing the flight."
Pros: "The stewardesses were absolutely amazing, asking/ offering beverages in between main meals t/ out the whole flight! They were just doing their job above and beyond! Wonderful crew especially the girls in the section 30’s on the side FGJK, THANK YOU SO MUCH! YOU WERE AMAZING!"
Cons: "Older plane with poor seat comfort. (Same trip Bos to Zurich much better.) Video did not work at all in one seat and poorly in other ,for 7 hr flight"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "SAME AS ABOVE"
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "Hard to see monitor for films and to hear through earpiece."
Cons: "We were scheduled for a 55 minute layover in Zurich which was not nearly enough time. Our plane was 10 minutes late in landing but our next flight was delayed 5 minutes. We had to take a bus from the plane to the terminal, go through immigration with very long lines, take a tram to our departure terminal and then run to our gate which was at the end of a very long hallway. Luckily they held the plane but it was very stressful and exhausting getting to our plane."
Pros: "I treated myself to Swiss Business (for a second time) for this trip and it was terrific. From the comfortable seats, the fabulous dinner, the outstanding Swiss staff from the baggage check to the wonderful flight attendants, the flight to Zürich and the return trip to Boston was amazing! I cannot say enough good things about Swiss. I would love to be able to fly Swiss Business again when I travel to Zürich in September 2019."
Cons: "Too hot on plane, despite several requests to turn up air conditioning. Would be nice if pilot gave a few more updates as to why we sat on the tamac so long."
Pros: "Mobile check in worked well. Onboard service is very good, with decent food and complimentary beverages including beer and wine. Seats are relatively comfortable. Extensive selection of TV and movie entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit helter skelter. It’s a rather annoying that selecting seats is only available for an extra fee. The A340s used on this route are getting a little on the old side, and the once state of the art in seat entertainment system has a tendency to crash frequently and require lengthy reboots."
Pros: "The crew was superlative, and after I was stuck for an hour at passport control I found the captain waiting with my dog(in his crate) to make sure of his well being. He said he made sure he kept the climate control at 20c the whole time on the plane. You hear all these animal horror stories but this went above and beyond."
Pros: "On Board Service"
Pros: "Amazing staff .."
Pros: "Very courteous attendants."
Cons: "Need to make it more clear that it is necessary to complete a second passport controle at the boarding gate....causing confusion for some travelers who are not aware of this extra step"
Cons: "We (parents) were business class, but our two kids in coach, yet Swiss doesn’t allow “guests” in the lounge. Hmmm. What a bunch of BS."
Pros: "Small screens. Hard to use"
Pros: "Flight is conformable.. Crew was fine."
Cons: "experience at the Zurich airport was not good. They checked our passports 3 times before we got to our gate. Swiss airlines should account for these things when they give options for the connections. we had about and hour and half layover and did not even have time to have coffee or anything before a 9+ hour flight. We just ran from one flight to another and barely made to our flight.."
Cons: "space at my feet!"
Cons: "4-hour delay, followed by announcement of boarding gate, but nobody at security, necessitating weary travelers needing to leave the boarding area to go back out and through security again. On board, I was very uncomfortable, but responsibility primarily not the airlines, but due to seat mate. However, there was a chill wind blowing directly on my face for two hours."
Pros: "They are the best airline flying to Boston."
Pros: "Friendly service. Efficient. More leg room than most other airlines. Decent entertainment. Decent food."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Because there was no way for us to check in early or online and they did not send us an email directing us to do so, they put us on standby even though the flights were paid for months before. We couldn't sit together--they wouldn't even try, they let the computer do it randomly as we boarded. They put my son through ridiculous strip search security measures, and when my passport fell into to the steel bullet of a garbage can, they didn't help and my son and I figure out how to go through it to get my passport. They could not have been more unhelpful. Plus the food was terrible, and delays both in taking off and getting to the gate. I will NEVER fly Swiss Air again."
Cons: "Provided headphones are horrible and headphone jack only puts out mono when used with a regular set of headphones."
Pros: "See above. Zurich is a very easy airport and even though our layover was short we never felt rushed or stressed."
Cons: "Online checkin was tricky. No help for online form which were probably translated from another language . Took me a few guesses to figure out what the 'valid for' field actually is... Departed 30 minutes late"
Pros: "good entertainment system"
Cons: "not enough leg room"
Cons: "There was no wifi available, the airline did not have a record of my request for a vegan meal even though I submitted one when I booked my tickets, and they claimed I did not pay for/reserve a seat (even though I had for the flight over, which I booked at the same time as the return flight), so I was stuck in a cramped middle seat for 8 hours trying to write a paper without the internet."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, planes was very clean, the food was excellent and the staff was friendly."
Pros: "The chocolate"
Cons: "The entertainment system in the main part of the plane was not working luckily I had a good book otherwise I would have been very upset."
Pros: "Same as above!"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "No space, bad video screens (especially important for a long flight with a 3 year old) with terrible image and sound quality, even with my good headphones."
Pros: "Attentive crew offwring water frequentlyflight"
Cons: "Flifght was far from full and I am small.so the very tight seat configuration was not a problem."
Cons: "Food: not so good! Entertainment: in the section of the new releases movies was old not new:) And my bag didn't come on the and :("
Pros: "The crew was very nice, I felt bad for them as people were constantly complaining."
Cons: "The tv's did not work, was extremely disappointing."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "Bag is missing and no one at bagga area to help! Have waited almost an hour!!!!"
Cons: "Would have been 5 stars overall if not for two hours of a child kicking me seat and occasionally poking my arm."
Pros: "The captain refused to turn on the AC until we were just about to leave. Many passengers were complaining. The crew refused to help or do anything. Then during the flight they kept the air flow down to a minimum so again it was boiling hot. DON'T FLY Swiss Air if you like normal temperatures!"
