Cons: "Seat could have been more comfortable but the leg room was good"
Cons: "Swiss Air from Athens to Zurich stellar—excellent service, seating, food—but left one hour late due to air traffic. Nearly missed connecting Edelweiss flight—and that flight was just terrible. Passengers behind me constantly kicking, pulling my seat—wouldn’t allow me to put seat in recline position."
Cons: "Better entertainment for an 8 hour flight. Take under consideration that tall guys can’t be squeezed in for 8 hours.Give some space to people who really need it"
Cons: "Entertainment system is dated. Screens froze often, were not very touch sensitive and the sound was pretty bad (on mine, would only provide sound to one ear, so I had to turn up other bc of poor quality and ended up w a headache.) Also, bathrooms were gross; ran out of paper and floors were "soiled""
Cons: "No entertainment. Food was bad."
Cons: "Don’t overbook trafficking of flights, I barely made my connection. My colleague missed this same flight last week and had to spend the night in Zürich. I hope this is not a trend because I will not fly Swiss anymore, as I can not have lost evenings due to flight delays."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, very good food, good entertainment"
Cons: "No wifi or inflight entertainment"
Pros: "The food was good."

Cons: "A bit of long lines especially with the 2nd security point in Zurich."
Pros: "The bag drop off and check in went very quickly."
Cons: "The plane was late and there was little to no communication to the passengers waiting to board the flight. Very tiring."
Pros: "Quick passport control Friendly staff Short waiting time to board"
Pros: "Friendly and professional crew. Plane was clean"
Cons: "Tight space in economy class(to be expected)"
Pros: "I loved the upgrade to business class. It was private, spacious, and very hospitable."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, more or less."
Cons: "packed in like anchovies in a tin."
Pros: "The breakfast quiche was a pleasant surprise. Crew was very welcoming and professional."
Cons: "I was surprised to be charged for 1 piece of checked baggage. I was never informed I would be required to pay for 1 piece of checked baggage. I would have paid ahead of time, had I known. I tried to check-in online but was denied access to my ticket because Swiss Air thought I might be a robot. I kept following instructions for positive access but after about 10 attempts I quit. Very irritating!"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "Nice breakfast treat and chocolate is always appreciated"
Cons: "Not a specific complaint about this flight but boarding in general is not smooth No online check-in that I could find."
Pros: "flight left on time as schedule and the flight staff was absolutely courteous."
Cons: "The boarding process is very uncomfortable as the passengers are asked to board the plane without any specific order, regardless of where they’re sitting, instead of boarding them by groups."
Pros: "Flight is conformable.. Crew was fine."
Cons: "they did not put our special meal request for the 1st leg of our journey .. it was only 2.5 hours flight.. so its okay,.. but generally not a good thing...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.."
Pros: "General attitude of staff"
Cons: "Seats and handling of luggage"
Cons: "space at my feet"
Pros: "Flight itself was good for a shorter international flight. Dim cabin lights for early morning, crew providing plenty of drinks and snacks."
Cons: "For international travel, I’m always told to get there 3 hours before. For this trip we checked in but didn’t have access to a printer so needed a boarding pass. We wanted to carry on luggage so just needed to print the pass. Swiss was the only airline that wasn’t available on the check-in kiosks. The front desk staff didn’t arrive until closer to 1.5 hours before check in so nearly theall passengers were in a huge line to get passes and check bags."
Pros: "Service was great with staff being very professional Flights were on time and entertainment selections were good."
Pros: "Very friendly and excellent service. It was my first experience flying with Swiss. Will definitely fly with them again. Brest airline I've taken to Europe. This airline should be called tthe friendly skies of Europe. They are outstanding."
Cons: "The trip coming back to Chicago was a bit longer than going. The excellent service tgay eas provided by the crew made up for tgay."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Courteous, welcoming crew. All good"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "No seat entertainment."
Cons: "Seats have become tiny, crew were not very friendly. No ice on an 11hr15min flight , that was delayed almost 5hours!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional lucky it was a short flight"
Cons: "The quality of the flight is cheap"
Pros: "Once staff arrived all went well."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for about 1pm and we arrived with another connecting flight to the Athens airport at 8am as that was our only choice. No staff arrived until 11am to check people in and take baggage. We were flying business and would have liked to check in earlier and make our way through security to the business lounge but could not and had to wait for three hours. It would have been nice to have one person on duty."
Pros: "Food was excellent and staff was friendy."
Cons: "Wifi was expensive."
Pros: "The chocolate"
Cons: "No outlet for charging electronics. No free checked luggage. My carry on (of usual size) was deemed a bit too big so I was forced to check it in."
Cons: "Customer services fly attendece great services"
Pros: "I got ill on my flight to Zurich and the Swiss Flight Attendants attended to me like true professionals. They made sure I was comfortable until we landed which meant the world to me considering I was SO far away from my home. I'd like to especially acknowledge Frank, one of the attendants, who sat next to me to make sure I did not feel alone while I was sitting in the back with ice on my head, and felt like the world was spinning. He was my point of trust and warmth. That was not only extraordinary service, but human compassion at it's finest. Furthermore, the head attendant, who's name I could not get in the haze of the flight, escorted me from the plane to the cart who took me to the lounge to recover until my next flight. Thank you, Swiss Airlines, for having employees who knew how to triage my illness, and took care of me like family would. I appreciate it greatly and will surely be booking all my future European flights on Swiss. Please extend my gratitude to the flight crew on my Athens - Zurich flight on 5/28."
Pros: "The whole experience was excellent didnt hv to wait long for luggage"
Cons: "Pressure to make connecting flight"
Pros: "the entertainment selection was above an beyond."
Cons: "The food was really not great. The meals were tiny and low quality. I understand there are restrictions when on an aircraft, but the meals were the size of snacks and not understanding of allergies at all. (Ie, cheese was on everything.)"
Pros: "Food was good, including snacks. Generous with drinks as well. Crew was polite and friendly. Appreciated the chocolate at the end!"
Pros: "Priority boarding, quick boarding, efficient service"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom, late take off/late arrival, non-gluten free or healthy options for food"
Pros: "Super nice and skilled staff, everyone was great to interact with."
Cons: "Not a thing."
Cons: "THERE'S SOO LITTLE LEG SPACE BETWEEN SEATS ON THE ECONOMY SECTION IT IS VERY UNCONFORTABLE!!!"
Cons: "Should be clear whether meals contain nuts."
Pros: "Decent food, for airline food. I was not expecting anythoing for the 3 hour flight,. Included beer/wine/spirits helps a lot."
Cons: "It's still a cattle car for coach travel. Boarding was hectic. Called all passengers at once, which resulted in a crowd pushing to get through the two checkpoints all at once."
Pros: "Service, food was excellent. They went above and beyond."
Cons: "Hard to say.. Comfort of economy section."
Cons: "No me gusto . porque quando compre las pasajes con ustedes por la pagina me decia q estaba incluydo 1 maleta de 23 kg y otra de mano 8 kg. por el precio total pagado y cuando llegue ñas mañetas no estavam incluydas y tuve que pagalas. Yo ley las condiciones de mi pasaje y me daba exactamente esto que tenia derecho a las maletas. Grande falla de ustedes. ya no comprare mas con su compania K"
Cons: "I missed a collecting flight due to weather and the airline refused to rebook my flight."
On-time, very good equipment, service and food, attentive and professional staff.
Utter chaos boarding in Athens.
Everything was outstanding
Pros: "The food was very good and inflight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "They keep the cabin temperature too warm the entire flight. The seats are too stiff."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and the extra care package and warm towels were a plus. The food was good too."
Pros: "Very comfortable business class. Amazing food prepared on board. Flight crew was very pleasant, helpful and professional. The business class lounge in Istanbul was amazing as well, 2 stories tall with food, drink and entertainment everywhere. Golf simulator, slot cars etc!!!"
Cons: "Check in process was more disorganized than most business class ."
Pros: "Athens to Istanbul is a short one hour flight, made very pleasant by the attentiveness of cabin crew"
Pros: "Crew. Food wasn’t bad."
Cons: "Late leaving. Waited an hour in Joburg before we could deplane. Cramped seat (normal on most airlines)."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines does not communicate with its passengers. If the flight is late (as both of ours were), you wait with no information as to when the flight leaves. The same lack of communication occurs once you on board. I joked to my wife that the cargo on a Fed-Ex flight is given more information. Arrived in Istanbul with a very tight connection. Airplane was not given a gate so we needed to take a bus to terminal. The bus dropped us just about as far from our connecting gate as possible. Since it took four buses to transport passengers, one could have been designated for US bound transfer passengers (who were all leaving from same group of gates) and taken us directly there."
Pros: "The entertainment option was pretty good"
Cons: "There's very limited legroom on this plane."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Great service, incredible food. To give it a quick one: we ate the fish. ON AN AIRPLANE. I never eat the fish on a plane, but the chefs were great. Everything we ate was exceptional. Oh, beyond the food? The seats are great and the lie-flat worked perfectly. The entertainment system was great as well, and the live TV allowed me to catch the NBA playoffs while in the air. All-in-all, I couldn't recommend this flight more."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. We were served beverages and a tasty (by American airlines standards) sandwich on the less than 1 1/2 hour flight"
Cons: "Boarding was slow, late and somewhat disorganized."
Pros: "Good movie selection and food, crew were very friendly."
Cons: "I felt very cramped in my seat and it was hard to not slide out or to the side."
Cons: "Missed Flight: The flight from Istanbul to Athens was posted as delayed. We were a party of eight and arrived for boarding very close to deadline (minus posted delays) At the boarding gate we were met by six other passengers. The gate was vacant and closed. The real problem happened at the Turkish Airlines desk where we were treated with arrogance, disdain and absolutely no compassion. AS a matter of fact some of the Turkish Airlines staff smiled as they imposed an outrageous fine to purchase tickets to the next flight and continuation of our previous booking. We intend to protest the charges and contact thru many forms of media inform as many fellow travellers of the incident and subsequent treatment by Turkish Airlines. Social media is a powerful tool and although the cards were held in their favor the night of 9-21-17 our protest will not end here. We are fourteen wounded travellers that have agreed to use as many forms of social media as possible to get our message out."
Pros: "Liked the movies and entertainment selections."
Cons: "They didn't have a vegan menu. I had requested vegan and called over the phone a month before my flight and they said they understood. Then on the flight I was told they only do vegetarian which was not good enough. After food was passed out to guests the flight crew dissapeared and never came to collect food trays till about 2 hours after and guests were starting to make a mess leaving food trays on the ground and isles. I had already selected my seat prior to boarding which I paid hundreds of dollars for. Then after boarding the flight crew asked me and the gentleman sitting next to me to move our seats to accomodate for another man that wanted to sit next to his wife. Then I was stuck in a middle seat and I paid for an isle seat. I thought this was rediculous. No one offered me a discount or anything! And the man that wanted to sit next to his wife wouldn't let the plane leave till he was sitting next to his wife. What was I supposed to do? Hold up the plane even longer? This was so crazy!! Outrageous!"
Pros: "Purchase value"
Cons: "Economy seats are a bit tight"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled twice within 24 hours before takeoff. All I got was an email saying it was cancelled and a number where no one could help me. I spent over $40 international calls just to reschedule my flight, only to have to take a $80 cab to the airport to have a human help me. Worst customer service and worst experience. I was trying to get home after a natural disaster struck my hometown and Turkish Airlines actually made that experience even worse. At no point did anyone even apologize for cancelling two of my flights without another option until a full week later. I had to pay to fly myself home from Boston because they were so unhelpful. Would never recommend Turkish Airlines to anyone I know whn traveling internationally."
Cons: "There were some passengers didn't allowed to get on a flight because of over booking. Some of them didn't speek English and didn't understand why thy have to stay in the airport.On the other hand I saw how the officials laughed at him because he tried to fight for the place on the flight by using a foreign language. It is an ugly phenomenon that does not respect people"
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Leg room is too narrow and seat cushion is too harsh to sit on for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "Crew,boarding,comfort,entertainment and food."
Pros: "The flight was delayed, took 6 hours at the airport to get things straighten out. Lost the flight connection,"
Cons: "It took way too long to get the right information on the status of the flight"
Cons: "my seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Great food, good selection of movies."
Pros: "Quick boarding , the crew was awesome and very helpful. Great service all around"
Cons: "The flight was delayed but they couldn't tell us how late it was , but thanks to Kayak knew it was 40 mins delayed."
Cons: "i am allergic to cheese and there is no other food selection. Hostess skipped serving my husband meal through out the flight unless asking the hostess. We had 1hr 30 minutes to walk to transfer flight and pass through customs and checking points . we did not have enough time .most of the time we ran to catch up the flight"
Pros: "Our screens didn't work and they wouldn't move us to a business class seat. It was also freezing, everyone was complaining, I even got sick. It's the worst. Will never travel again with them"
Pros: "Great crew! So efficient and friendly. I understand why it is, but security was over the top. Cabin was a big cramped. Super food offerings!"
Pros: "Perfect trip, seats comfortable and soft even in economy and having personal entertainment was a pleasant surprise. also good selection of films. Food was just a sandwich but better quality than other companies."
Pros: "The flight was great and the service was wonderful. The plane was new and clean. A huge plus was the video entertainment in every seat along with headphones and USB Charging Port. They poured me a double Glenlivet scotch on the rocks at NO CHARGE!"
Cons: "I booked three round-trip tickets from LAX to Athens. Our daughter did not fly with us there but we checked with ticketing in LAX and they booked her seat anyway. The issue came when we tried to leave Athens the airlines then said that I had to purchase a one-way ticket! They informed me that the flight was cancelled for my daughter because she didn't fly to Athens. The ticket was almost $1,500.00 and I intend to get my money back but it was unfortunate that they had to charge me for it in the first place."
Pros: "Food and service were fine, plenty of movie choices on the screen, nice goody bag with slippers, ear plugs, eye mask, etc . . ."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines website is the worst I've ever used. Embarrassingly bad, really."
Pros: "Getting off that awful plane"
Cons: "Everything else. Wish there was a way to give zero stars. These people lost my luggage, were at least 30 minutes late for each of 5 flights on this trip and that includes the one that I was forced to take after this flight took off late and after landing they couldn't find a parking spot for their plane at the largest airport in their home country. Obviously I missed my connecting flight back to JFK. I was stranded in Istanbul overnight and forced to buy a temporary visa just to go to the hotel they offered for causing we to miss my connecting flight. What legitimate airline is so disorganized they can't figure out how take off on time, to de-board passengers, and park their planes at their main airport?"
Pros: "Great service on and off board. Great and very comfortable airplane."
Pros: "I loved the staff and the services provided. Food was excellent and the overall flight was just amazing."
Pros: "It was a nice and short flight"
Cons: "No entertainment system at the seat."
Pros: "quick flight and good snack good entertainment console and selection"
Pros: "Attendants were attentive. Food was good ad plentiful."
Cons: "Seat space very cramped. I am tall. Cabin was warm."
Pros: "Business class did have their own line."
Cons: "It did not matter where you were on the flight, last row or business class, you all boarded at once. It was a big free for all. And usually business class is given a given special treatment as soon as they are seated but it was not the case. The short flights are not worth the price of the business class."
Pros: "Great staff!!"
Pros: "Turkish airlines had great food, were very accommodating, the seats had plenty of space, and it was an overall great experience. I will definitely fly with them again!"
Pros: "Flight was short. Provided snacks and drinks."
Pros: "Good overall service"
Cons: "The staff could've been more patient"
Pros: "Courteous and efficient crew."
Pros: "Everything was top notch.. the food, the service, the overall experience."
Pros: "Beds were cozy and the food top notch"
Pros: "I was able 3 soccer games live during the flight. Food was also very good."
Pros: "Nice onboard entertainment system"
Cons: "Extremely rude flight attendants. Did not care at all for customer service. Do not expect western standard service ! Service is 3rd world."
Pros: "The service is amazing Food is great"
Cons: "Boarding was interesting"
Pros: "Food and drinks!"
Cons: "Nothing, it was great"
Cons: "There is no free beverage service, let alone snacks or meals. Some tickets do not allow you to pre-book a meal and there is no way to buy a hot meal even in a 12-hour flight.leg room is a bit small and carry on restrictions are getting lower all the time."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The kosher food"
Pros: "Crew was amazing—efficient and kind. Loved the seat space"
Cons: "Nothing. All good"
Pros: "The best landing of a commercial aircraft I have ever experienced in my 74 years and in half a century of flying across the globe, took place in arriving at the Madrid airport with this Aegean Airlines flight. I had to ask the airline hostesses the names of the pilot, and they were two pilots flying"
Pros: "Good on business class was amazing and the staff was always ready to help with any questions."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice and because of that the airplane was not as clean as it should of been"
Pros: "Ground crew and cabin crew were very helpful and efficient"
Pros: "I did not make this connection due to delayed first flight and the most poorly organized and staffed airport!!!"
Cons: "Getting reimbursed!"
Pros: "Aegean is a fine airline overall"
Cons: "I had a carry-on bag, no problem on the flight from Madrid to Athens; but on the return trip they weighed the bags of some passengers, and when mine was over the limit -- which, however, was not indicated in the baggage restrictions -- they charged me 60 euros and I had to check it right there."
Pros: "The crew was nice, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "There wasn't an autobus ready to take us from the main terminal in Athens to the plane on the runway."
Cons: "Boarding could have been handled a bit better. We were told our suitcases could not be carried on as they were too big, but we saw other passengers with luggage just as big but they got to carry it on. They didn't charge us for checking the bag which made the issue less irritating."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and polite"
Cons: "Apparently Aegean has stopped offering candy before take off. That's a pity as this was a nice (and presumably low cost) way of differentiating from other Star Alliance airlines. Food was mediocre and there was no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "Seats and the leg room"
Cons: "Vegetarian food"
Pros: "Again a lovely smooth flight that departed on time. The captain spoke very clearly and was easily understood."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable for this length of flight and space very limited."
Pros: "The food, crew was nice and polite."
Cons: "Didn't have any entertainment"
Cons: "I'm a photographer on a 3 week trip. I have luggage. Unless you take the ferry, there are limited airline options to Cyclades. Aegean really doesn't want you if you have luggage. Felt like I was being scolded. True, I'm trying to be frugal and avoid a big investment in shock-proof luggage and/or checked baggage fees, but as long as it fits under my seat, what's the big deal? I'm sure I easily weigh at least 70 pounds less than the person sitting next to me, so the extra 4 kg in a backpack that I (female) can personally carry shouldn't be an issue. Then, there's no jetway. You leave the gate to board a bus that takes you to a plane on the tarmac where you must climb a rather large flight of metal stairs. Reverse direction, It takes quite some time and a few crew members to assist those with disabilities to deplane. All the time the rest of the passengers are waiting in the bus to get to their connections. Would only ever fly this airline again if it was the only option to get where I want to go."
Cons: "I arrived just before the hour an hour before departure for a 6am flight, which is in line with their 60 minute policy to find the counter closed. I spent another 25 minutes running around the airport trying to find someone to assist including a ticket agent to adjust my flight. Only to be told I couldn't get a flight out until the next day and I had to pay more for my original ticket for it. I contacted customer service and their response was a simple copy and paste of the rules which I was well aware of (apparently I should have really been there 90 mins before and not 60 according to the site). I only booked with the airline because it offered an 8 hour layover in Athens...a chance to see a bonus city. There are plenty of other airlines with more flexible and consistent policies. I have traveled the world on many airlines and have never had an early check in counter close or to have to chase down a representative to get service."
Pros: "The employees were very helpful and friendly. Food was not worse than what one can expect of an airline (about as “good” as a US airline’s, which is not a high standard to beat). The plane seemed recent and clean."
Cons: "The major problem was the lack of detail on their luggage policy. I am sure they can show the text clearly warning me about the fees for bringing a piece of luggage per person, but I missed it. Therefore, they charged me $35 per person for their registered bag. That’s probably how they “beat” their competitors’ prices. If you include the fees in your calculation, this might still be a good option, but make sure that you read the fine print, or be prepared to pay as “extra” what many airlines offer as basic."
Pros: "This flight was great."
Pros: "Accurate times"
Cons: "Night travelling"
Pros: "No surprises. Routine flight."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The changes in gates"
Pros: "We were given a meal"
Cons: "The meal wasn't very good"
Cons: "I did not understand flight attendants in english because of their bad pronunciation and I did not know what their saying all flight."
Cons: "I had round trip flight with Aegean airline from Santorini to Athen and Athen to Santorini, Both flights had DELAYED FOR ONE HOUR!!! My gateleg table was broken on Athen to Santorini flight so I ate my lunch in a hard way!!!!! On the way back after one delayed finally we arrived at Athen airport and I had two more flight to caught. when I got my luggage do the next flight I realized literally my luggage was destroyed!!!!"
Cons: "Procedures for handling sick elderly passenger. One crew member should take initiative and deal with sick person and handle calling for a doctor on board ."
Pros: "Very bad"
Cons: "All the team"
Pros: "Friendly staff, clean airplane"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "I love airlines where you can drink wine with your food."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Clean, smooth, on time"
Cons: "Food was not interesting"
Cons: "They charge me on my two flight about 100 euros for my bags that's the worst , never had that and this is my first and last time I used them"
Pros: "Quick smooth and efficient with two exits at landing."
Cons: "I hated that I and 10 ither passengers were told to RUN! i had left London, so my attite was heavy, and here i am running through the airport. It was exhausting. Why should we have to run when the intial connection was 45 mins. Because one plane with the SAME airline is running late and gives us 6 minute's to get to the gate, that should not be any fault of the passengers. Radio the other flight and have them hold. I got an email that the gate changed TWICE. the airline employee did not get that memo at all. So we were raced to the wrong gate even AFTER, I mentioned the gate change. A real frustrating experience all together."
Pros: "Great service nice food comfortable flight"
Cons: "Nothing :))"
Pros: "The flight was great. The staff was nice. Everything was great!"
Cons: "I didn't realize that we could of brought on our bags for free."
Cons: "The staff in Athens airport, at the ticket desks, were disinterested, and actually rude. Bad impression."

Cons: "The ticket didnt specify the type of economy class so we had to pay for extra baggage"
Pros: "The flight crew were very friendly and gorgeous!! And short flights!!"
Cons: "The boarding process was a little unorganized."
Pros: "Nothing!!! I wait for 21 hours in the airport for a 45 minutes flight!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "We lost a day and all the expenses such as tours, hotels, etc. that we payed before and nothing was covered by the airline, we were just offered to get our money back from the flight but they never gave us a solution. Some of the people in AEGEAN airlines were extremely rude and had no empathy for us, it was an awful day!!! because we had no sleep cause we where there at 2 am in the morning cause the flight was at 5:15 and we did that because we wanted to be for the whole day in santorini so you can imagine how frustrating and upset we were, they just gave us a snak for 6.50 Euro and 10 hours later We literalaly had to figth for our Food, We will apriciate if youu can do something about it or get us a refound, we where 3 people: ana Marrufo, Estefani Escoffie and pamela Ramayo"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable. Looked new."
Cons: "I was stranded in Dublin after being rerouted by Lufthansa and they were no help at all"
Pros: "Always polite and accommodating. The seats are very comfortable and roomy. it was a pleasant quick flight"
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "The onboard entertainment were quite outdated selections. The seats are very small for such a long flight."
Cons: "The workers at Lufthansa can learn to communicate with one another so that people don’t miss their flights. First flight stayed on the runway for an hour with no explanation for the delay. This caused us to miss our connecting flight, which clearly could have been avoided. Pathetic professionalism."
Pros: "Lufthansa is very good!"
Cons: "Now I will never buy anything from this site.It is very difficult and impossible to do last minute changes.Next time I will buy from the Airline strait."
Pros: "The red wine was good. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "Unpleasant boarding experience: While my carry-on item was well within the Lufthansa guidelines, the lady in charge of boarding insisted that it was too big and did not allow it in the cabin. I have used the same bag in previous Lufthansa flights without any problem. She sarcastically told me that "I am not Americanaki" - a derogatory expression used by those in Greece who consider the Americans naive."
Pros: "short flight"
Cons: "not much room and no entertainment"
Cons: "Seats and space are just too small."
Pros: "Food was great. The crew was very polite and professional"
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "The crew again was great. The cheese sandwich was also excellent. I wasn't expecting a sandwich on a 2 hour flight and this was a welcome surprise."
Cons: "Boarding took a long time, but that was a product of having to bus everyone out to the plane for boarding. They also crammed way too many people onto the bus. Would have been more efficient to load quickly and go as another bus was already waiting."
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew. Great seat with space."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "I was allergic to ingredients in the in-flight meal. There were no additional options left by the time food got to me. The crew was indifferent about my allergy and seemed offended when I returned the food uneaten."
Pros: "I fly transatlantic often, and I've flown Lufthansa several times before. During the flight I was thinking this was literally the best transatlantic flight I've ever had, and if I can make it work with my schedule and cost constraints I'm going to fly Lufthansa every time. I never really had a 'favorite' airline before, but I do now--Lufthansa. I should have captured the economy classes crews names, but it was 414 from Munich to Dulles on 25 May--they were truly outstanding."
Pros: "Air qualtiy, room, cabin attendants, food were all very good."
Cons: "Delay in the arrival/departure of the flight, presumably due to the strike the day before."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Not much room in the seats. Very narrow. Not much space between the rows.Food is mediocre."
Pros: "Flight was fine..."
Cons: "When two passengers got into a brawl over who knows what, it took two hours for the police to come on board and take them off the flight. They should have been removed quickly. Missed connecting flight. Messed my day up big time."
Pros: "Excellent aircraft Very nice crew"
Cons: "Food was completely tasteless - of very questionable quality"
Cons: "Too crowded seats were very close"
Pros: "My flight was a little under two hours and I loved all of the extra leg room in the exit row. The crew was friendly and pleasant."
Pros: "Service is excellent. On time."
Cons: "HEAVY PASTA DISH."
Pros: "Staff was nicer on this flight verus the first flight."
Cons: "My tv didnt work. They tried to reset it twice. So 9 hours without entertainment sucks!"
Pros: "I just love flaying with Lufthansa Airlines"
Cons: "I find that bigger airplanes are more organized than the small ones."
Pros: "Congratulations for your pilot! He gave us the best landing ever! Very smooth and safe landing. One minute we were in the air and the other he was just parking the airplane!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient. The food was okay (special meal ordered)."
Cons: "The plane was filthy. There was crud packed in every crevice. I wouldn't put stocking feet on the floor. There were also pieces of the plane that were cracked or broken off completely. It was a little unnerving."
Pros: "I flew economy. Good plane, ok food, frequent meals, good coffee, free beers and wine,"
Cons: "economy: The chairs were ok but I've had better ones."
Pros: "Roomy seats, excellent service!"
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like!"
Pros: "Timeliness. Service aboard the flight was great"
Cons: "The seats were too close together. Not enough room to move around"
Pros: "Movies were good"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable. Service was not good. Rude staff. Horrible experience."
Pros: "I like boarding with the two kids were a breeze they put us in the plane quickly and had no issues there."
Cons: "The staff was rude, not all of the just some of the ladies working that flight were rude to us and others in the plane."
Pros: "Great crew. Very comfortable flight, good food. On schedule"
Pros: "Gate and flight crew were polite and attentive. As I could not check in online, I asked for an aisle seat at gate and crew did all they could to provide one. The flight was easy. Everyone in the flight crew offered their assistance before I asked and they did with a smile. Seat was comfortable and I didn't ask for upgrade. I paid for extra room on outbound flight only to sit in the most cramped seat ever. And on this flight I didn't bother paying for extra room and was pleasantly surprised I wasn't sardined. Very nice Lufthansa! The pilot made minimal interruptions and said only important stuff. No unnecessary pleasantries. Thank you!"
Pros: "REQUESTED FOOD WAS NOT AVAILABLE AND STAFF WAS RUDE"
Pros: "The caring of the air hostesses"
Cons: "The space was very limited"
Pros: "Bathrooms were clean, seats comfortable, staff helpful"
Cons: "Food was mediocre. An upcharge for a better meal would have been appreciated. Flight from Greece delayed, but again, staff was helpful."
Pros: "The flight attendance were nice."
Cons: "One of worst EU to US flights ever. Food was Ick, entertainment?? (even if you paid for the premium the choices were bad)."
Pros: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, I needed assistance to the boarding gate. The attendants were very helpful and courteous."
Cons: "They scheduled our connection flight from Munich to Dulles Wash DC to close to our arrival. For example, the flight from Athens landed just four minutes before boarding started for our connection and we had to go through German customs. Luckily for us there were many passengers on the Athens flight that were also going on Dulles flight the airline waited for the passengers. This scheduling issue caused unnecessary stress that could have been avoided."
Pros: "Safety. Great entertainment! The food was good!"
Pros: "Entertainment choices, flight crew, terrific seats"
Cons: "Think boarding process would be so much smoother if you went from the rear of the plane to the front."
Cons: "Tight quarters for long trip"
Pros: "Employees were polite, friendly, and very helpful!"
Pros: "There was no entertainment system"
Pros: "Great food, great Service (attendants), smooth flight, clean/tidy aircraft"
Pros: "Additional legroom"
Cons: "Business class should offer more in seat than empty seat between two coach seats"
Pros: "Was ok for a shorter flight. On time"
Cons: "Seems to be a older plane. Leg space seems smaller than on planes of same size. Food acceptable. No entertainment systems."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Pros: "Very quick flight"
Cons: "The website. It kept going over the same thing and I couldn’t do what I wanted to."
Pros: "Far more comfortable than expected. Decent leg room."
Cons: "The yellow is overwhelming and don't expect your seat to recliner or to get meals or entertainment but not bad for budget."
Cons: "The plane was dirty... inside doors gross....a cup of coffee would have been nice or even water...it seemed like a constant sales pitch...felt bad for the crew...it was a huge value...but would have paid a bit more for just a few conveniences"
Cons: "This is the terrible airlines that we have ever experienced. It’s not organized at all. After booking the ticket, I didn’t say we have to check in 2 hours prior to not to get charged at the airport. When we stand at the encounter, everyone in line didn’t know this and had to turn around to get in the different line to pay for checking in. After that, we had to get back in a long line and the lady didn’t mentioned that she can check in our luggage’s. With that being said, we had to go back to other encounter to pay for checked in luggage. We paid almost $200 for checking in and luggage. How stupid is that? We and other customers in line all said we felt it’s the rip off. We come to Ireland for vacation and expected it would be welcome and nice. This turned us off. Never fly with this airlines again. Thumbs down!!!"
Cons: "Had to stand outside in rain & wind while waiting to board. Took a very long time to board. Very loud people. Excessively loud engine noise. Attendant made me open my window shade. Small seat did not recline. No seat pocket for magazine."
Pros: "The trip was smooth once we got a plane. Everything else was as ecpected."
Cons: "Delayed multiple times and finally departed 2 hours late. Interrupted a full day’s worth of travel plans."
Pros: "There is nothing to like about an airline that appears to have low fares and then nickel & dimes you for everything, typical bait-and-switch style of doing business."
Cons: "First of all, this airline needs to train their staff better. The gate agent I dealt with on a flight has no business in any field where she would be required to work with people. Second, this airline needs to get their s*@t together when it comes to baggage. I was humiliated (by the creature they hired for a gate agent) when I was forced off the boarding line and then demanded to pay 200 euros (cash only and in euros only) for carry-on luggage that was under the size and weight requirements, and had already flown, without incident, on numerous flights during the same trip. I filed a complaint with Ryanair and weeks later received a very passive, useless, response from some brain-dead individual in corporate I suppose. No one at Ryanair cared about the mafioso-type treatment my family and I, including my 80-year-old mother, received. Avoid this airline at all costs (literally and figuratively)! It will not save you money, or anything else. It will only cost you more!"
Cons: "Baggage policy"
Cons: "Dishonest airline. Never taking it again."
Cons: "How rude the crew members were and unhelpful."
Pros: "Customer service was horrifying"
Pros: "Great service, friendly crew. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Excessive price for a check in luggage. It is ridiculous. Outrageous."
Cons: "Flight cancelled just a day before departure."
Pros: "I like how inexpensive the flight was. This would make up for the other things had we not been seriously taken advantage when it came to our luggage!"
Cons: "We checked in online the night before our flight but didn't get a confirmation. We didn't think anything of it until we got to airport to find that we didn't show checked in, had to pay EXTRA to have our boarding passes printed off, and had to pay for EACH of our bags as well!! OH! And it's almost DOUBLE if you pay for it at the airport where you can weigh it then if you do it online! And take caution! Our bags that are considered carry on size are still too big for this airline do you will forced to check Them! This is obviously how they offset their inexpensive tickets! The cost of the ticket, once you add in all the other unexpected expenses in order to actually get on the flight, was NOT worth the "cheap" tickets we got! That's the only reason we decided to fly to Ireland while on our trip to the U.K. Had we known it would cost this much we never would have come to Ireland for two days!!"
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "The employees were just as unhelpful flying to dublin as they were flying out of dublin. Simple questions were met with disdain and annoyance rather than polite answers. We went through 3 different people before finding out that we didn't need to go through any of them which the first person could have told us. By the way the first person was a customer service attendant and he swiftly moved us on to the next line to stand in which was completely unnecessary and a waste of everyone's time. I will never fly with ryanair again."
Cons: "This is the worst airline I have ever flown and I have been flying a long time. It was hot, cramped, both flights were late and they had us sitting on the plane. And, it really is not as cheap as it first appears with all the extra feeds."
Pros: "The flight left on-time. The plane had 2 entrances so that helped with boarding."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline. No entertainment of any kind."
Pros: "Nothing. Rude staff. Charged me 20 Euro to obtain my boarding pass"
Cons: "Worst experience I have ever had flying."
Cons: "self service kiosks were not working in airport and we were told it would cost 50 pounds each to print boarding pass. We followed directions to try to print on our own by paying for expensive internet service at the airport but still were unable to view & print boarding passes. After talking to several rather unhelpful reps, someone at the Sky Desk made an exception to allow us "free" boarding passes. This was just after 2 people were charge full price (50L each for passes & full price to check luggage, after they didn't get promised email to check bags online) Cheap fares doesn't make up for frustration"
Cons: "Seats are too small and don't recline. There's no entertainment. We sat on the aircraft for a hour without any explanation on why we were waiting."
Pros: "the flight crew was nice and friendly when they werent trying to sell you something."
Cons: "Ryanair is a bunch of criminals that prey on the Americans traveling abroad. Yes its a discount airline but my $18 flight turned into $150 after all the hidden fees were paid for. To charge a passenger 15 pounds each to print a boarding pass is absolutely ridiculous. Everyone else around us could use their phones as a boarding pass except for the traveling Americans who did not have access to a printer while on vacation is criminal. Lesson learned, I will never fly Ryanair again and will tell every American I know not to be blinded by their discount fare."
Cons: "We departed an hour late. The crew was very unprofessional. The landing wasn't good. Kept the light on."
Pros: "The efficiency of the crew"
Cons: "The flight was almost an hour late"
Pros: "The price is great. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Delayed with no explanation. Chaotic boarding. Super cramped seats."
Cons: "four hour delay--missed my appointment"
Pros: "Really enjoyed my flight to London & back to Dublin with my Nieces"
Cons: "Would have loved it if there were some Irish stewards or stewardesses on board as it would have been easier to understand their accents and they tend to warmer & friendlier in their dealings with passengers"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The seats are to close to one another and gets unconfortable fast"
Pros: "It didn't crash."
Cons: "18 euro per boarding pass. Apathy of employees."
Cons: "No one knew where the boarding gate was."
Cons: "It wasn't mentioned that you cannot check in at the airport but you have to do it online. We ended up paying €55 euros for the check in even if we dont have check in baggage at the airport."
Cons: "slow, disorganized check in. Boarding is hideous, I'd rather wait in a DMV line. Airline run as if consumer, and luggage, are to be avoided. I cannot understand why Anyone would fly them routinely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no on was told"
Cons: "Did not know there was a 45 euro check in fee per person...never was advertised!"
Cons: "18 hours delay , poor communication"
Pros: "Cheap flight!"
Cons: "Tried to charge us for everything, including 15 pounds for printing a boarding pass. WiFi was only free for an hour at the airport, flight was delayed by two hours, plane lacked AC and was super cramped and hot. Boarding was also a mess."
Cons: "The crew said there would not be drinks because of anticipated turbulence for the entire flight. There was NO turbulence."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and took forever"
Pros: "We had been scared by other reviews, but this was not as bad as we'd read. There is no entertainment onboard, no food except for sale, and some luggage restrictions you need to take note of before you check in. Otherwise, quick smooth flight, friendly staff, luggage arrived, so overall fine experience."
Cons: "I arrived at the Athens Airport 3.5h in advance. I tried to check in online. The ultimately unworkable airport wifi meant that I spent about an hour trying to get to the Ryanair website. I found an internet kiosk, only to find out that the fact that I am Canadian prevented me from checking in online. I got in the very long line to get to the Ryanair service desk and print my boarding pass, but by the time I got to the desk, I was 2 (two) minutes after the 2h boarding period limit. As a result, I was charged over twice the cost of my ticket, simply to print a piece of paper confirming the reservation I had already paid for, and had proof of in my email inbox. I am understandably outraged. I am telling everyone I know to avoid Ryanair in favor of other low-cost carriers."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "If you are flying without luggage or carry-on, Ryan Air might be fore you."
Cons: "The airline charges a ridiculous amount for EVERYTHING! We bought our tickets and realized almost immediately that bags were not included. We tried to upgrade our ticket type to be inclusive of a bag, but took two hours to navigate their automated "customer service". Finally got through to a live person (which they charge for), they will allow you to upgrade the ticket if you bought through KAYAK. You have to purchase your bags separately, and 1 bag was significantly more than what our ticket costs. I contacted KAYAK roughly 5 hours after the original purchase, and they could do nothing because Ryan Air is a low cost carrier. It was cheaper buy Aer Lingus seats inclusive of luggage than to add luggage on Ryan Air. I will never fly Ryan Air again, and caution anyone trying to buy Ryan Air through KAYAK"
Pros: "We were unable to check bags in advance. Staff handled at bag drop."
Pros: "Love the crews of Ryan Air!"
Cons: "I wish that there was at least water for free."
