Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "However, I didn't find anything better than mediocre airlines. The attendant was kinda cold, service was rough, and toilets get dirty quickly."

Pros: "Best meal service ever, my husband never eats airplane food but gobbled up the dinner and the breakfast served. Seats were comfortable, beverages were readily available, one of the best airlines in the world."
Cons: "Didn't have slippers, only socks. Slightly inconvenient having to put shoes back on to run to the restroom, which sometimes have wetness from God knows what."

Pros: "Overall, excellent service for its Marco Polo club member! I paid USD $100 to join the club. And it is much better than my experience with EVA (diamond member, 4 yrs) and United (gold member)."

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."

Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Snacks"

Pros: "I liked that it was a straight flight from SFO -ZRH. On board entertainment was great."
Cons: "Seating is way to tight. Service from crew is nothing at all like it used to with Swiss. Nearly a smile from crew ( both legs of flight) mostly just hand motion when serving food. Food was a big disappointment too. It feels like all the good service is reserved only for business and first class !"

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "Excellent crew and service, lots of extras at. I charge (like beer/wine, meals, Swiss chocolates). Also on time departure and arrivals. Clean terminal areas. A+"
Cons: "Honestly can’t think of anything"

Cons: "Avoid spilling coke on the passengers"

Pros: "Superb crew; surprisingly delicious food (better than some first class meals I’ve had in the past)."
Cons: "The seat was remarkably uncomfortable. I fly business or first class when traveling overseas (prefer business class) specifically to be able to rest - this was the most uncomfortable I’ve experienced in the last few years."

Pros: "Swiss is always excellent"

Pros: "Food and drink service were excellent and big choice of entertainment"

Cons: "Lpst my luggage"

Cons: "Terrible movie selection"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful & friendly"
Cons: "The a/c or fans were on too high"

Pros: "The food and beverage service in Coach was great as usual ... The new 777 ER 300 was really a nice improvement over the aging Airbus planes previously flown Entertainment systems in coach were top notch with great entertainment choices to view ..."
Cons: "3 4 3 seating results in very narrow isles ... during the longer flights on the 777 the isle seated passengers lean into the isles making going to and from the restrooms in ( coach) a bit of an obstacle course"

Pros: "There wasn't much that stood out as likable. The food was pretty good."
Cons: "The plane was too hot. I asked multiple times throughout the flight for the temperature to be reduced, and it was not. I was wearing light jeans and a short sleeve shirt, and I was sweating all flight. Each time I asked throughout the duration of the flight, I was told it take a while for the temperature to decline. It's one thing to be uncomfortably warm on a flight; it's another thing when the flight crew lies to you. Further, I was not the only one to request that the temperature be reduced. This made an 11 hour flight particularly miserable."

Pros: "All of the flight crew was personable and ready to accommodate any need we might have. Before we could ever get hungry, the staff was coming down the aisle with another serving of pretty good food!"
Cons: "We did have to wait on the plane for an hour after boarding, but I believe that was mostly due to wind."

Pros: "Although sitting in a plane in coach could never be considered a wonderful experience, Swiss Air did the most to make it so. in particular the crew was very responsive and cheerful. The leg room wasn't bad and they were very liberal with their wine and beer offering."

Pros: "The crew fed us well throughout the flight--and we got free wine with dinner. The food was pretty good for airplane food. We got fresh dinner rolls, salad, dessert, and Swiss cheese. We got ice cream part way through the trip. I loved that we got a piece of Swiss chocolate on each leg of the journey. The crew was friendly. There was a screen at each seat where you could watch movies or TV, listen to music, or track your flight. The entertainment was free, and the crew provided free earphones. Blankets and pillows were provided."
Cons: "Like most planes, there was not enough leg room. It makes it pretty uncomfortable for an 11-1/2 hour flight. The boarding was a little confusing, but no serious issues."

Pros: "The crew was both fun and efficient. The food was definitely a step ahead of American owned airline companies. Very good choices of movies and entertainment."
Cons: "We've got no complaints."

Pros: "One on the plane service and food were very good. In flight movies limited in number of choices"
Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour because they couldn't fuel the plane and had to wait for trucks. Did not update the board at the gate with boarding times and people waited on long lines unnecessarily because they did not update the boarding times. Very frustrating."

Pros: "crew very nice and helpful. great service. food was very good and good portions. very nice entertainment system."
Cons: "unable to choose seat without paying extra."

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "I take the flight from ZRH to SFO several times a year. Typically on time, typically good service, food and drinks"
Cons: "The entertainment on the Airbus 340 is outdated and the screens are terrible but that is the only problem. ugh better with the new 777. Unfortunately not the case today"

Pros: "The service is the best!!! I enjoyed everything!!"

Pros: "Great service and flight. Thank you kayak for the great price!!"

Pros: "Service ok"
Cons: "Horrible food, tvs didn't work, crowded."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. So patient and accommodating, even when passengers were a bit impatient. Cabin was clean, and it was good to have blankets and pillow on a long flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Food was okay but not substantial. Comfort was terrible in my seat - for some reason I had a seat with a metal box underneath so I could not stretch my legs. And the fellow next to me, in the middle, was over 6 feet and was VERY uncomfortable, even though he had legroom. There were good options for entertainment, but it was unreliable and had to be restarted once. Also, the screen was terrible quality and I could not see no matter how I adjust the screen angle or the light."

Pros: "my wife needed a wheelchair, so we were whisked between terminals. but if we had had to negotiate that long distance by ourselves we would probably have missed the connection because there was only an hour layover and the distance between gates was great"

Pros: "The crew did a great job of handling our 2-hour delay in starting from Zurich - we were kept updated on what was happening, the aircraft was at a comfortable temperature (not too hot, not too cold), and we were given water during the wait. Also, during the flight, the crew kept coming through with more water, which was VERY NICE! Plus, the moist towels prior to landing. It makes a big difference in comfort levels for such a long flight."
Cons: "The on-board entertainment system was old and very clumsy to handle (with the embedded control in the arm rest). Also, it crashed on me two times and had to be re-booted, which was frustrating and took a long time every time it happened."

Pros: "See above"

Pros: "Courtesy of crew."

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Crew was friendly but rarely came through Offering water during a 12 hr flight Also did not enforce "shades down" during the The night And did not respond to call lights"

Pros: "Service is above average, flight attendants very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Only one choice of the lunch dishes was available, since they had run out of the second one."

Pros: "Great crew service, attention to detail, very responsive and efficient"
Cons: "1 hour departure delay from Zurich and did a poor job explaining the cause ?? Movie options available for passengers were limited and not very interesting to watch?"

Pros: "The crew was terrific."
Cons: "Economy seating very cramped. Cramped seat conditions, inability of video screen to articulate sufficiently to allow seeing the picture when the seat ahead was reclined."

Pros: "Boarding was very quick and efficient. Seating arrangements were nice pretty average overall."
Cons: "The crew was terrible. Young and in experience was on thing. But worse was they did the bare minimum and then hid out in the back for the rest of the flight. They served a weird cheese sandwich mid flight and would roll their eyes if you asked for water. The food selection and taste was bland or way too salty."

Pros: "Nice smooth flight, good service, comfort, food, crew, and entertainment. Crying toddlers made it hard to sleep."

Cons: "I paid for a seat on the aisle with extra leg room. Seat 24D. There was only minimal foot space because of some type of metal box under seat 23D. I don't think that I should had to pay $45 for the extra leg room just to receive cramped foot space."

Pros: "Excellent Amount & Quality of Asian Vegetarian Food"
Cons: "Due to a glitch in the webstei, I was unable to check in online, and therefore did not get a window seat for an 11 hour flight - very frutrating and uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Food was overall not bad. It would have been nice to have more snack options if I was hungry in between meals."
Cons: "Landed early but there was no gate so we just sat on the runway. We also sat on the runway long past when we were supposed to arrive. I'm not sure why there still was no gate when we passed the time that we were supposed to arrive. There were also no power outlets in the plane. For such a long flight, it would be great to have power outlets to charge devices while flying. Flight was also kept very cold. Not very good entertainment options."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Automated check in machines were horrible and almost caused me to miss my flight"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Small jet for transatlantic didn't allow for being able to walk, stretch and move about much during such a long flight, unlike larger airbus planes or larger Boeing planes. Why do airlines hire chefs then serve lousy food!? First meal was so so while wake up meal was really bad. Was so disappointed in Swiss Air so will not fly with them again. Great service doesn't make up for the noted disappointments. Spending a $2-3 more on food would have helped, but placing us in a long flight in such a small airbus plane just won't do!"

Pros: "As above."
Cons: "As above."

Pros: "We were fed constantly, which is nice because on a longer flight you never feel hungry. The staff was great."
Cons: "More space would be nice but I guess you can't ask for too much on flights these days."

Pros: "Food and drinks"
Cons: "The flight is rough. The ascend and descend pattern too abrupt that causes nausea. I wish the pilot need to be a passenger once in awhile to feel how others doing their job so he himself learned to adjust his ways."

Pros: "Due to the corona19 virus I was not able to travel and the airline phone lines have been so busy that I’m not sure if I will be able to change my ticket."

Cons: "Three hours departure delay from Munich to SFO"

Cons: "Paid for and reserved bassinet seat but didn't receive bassinet seat. No one wanted to help. Very disappointed."

Pros: "Glad that i was able to secure a seat in the emergency exit row (row 70)"
Cons: "Wow, I am not a heavy woman, I wear a size large but I am not in the least obese, just tall and not skinny. The seat width was ridiculously tight! I have NEVER experienced such discomfort in a Emergency Row seat!"

Pros: "The bathrooms were always clean. The staff curious and attentive, food was ok. Overall very goid"

Pros: "The food was pretty good. Normally I can't eat airplane food but it was actually good."
Cons: "The seat didn't go back at all"

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Could update movie selection"

Pros: "Staff was very attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Seating very cramped for a tall person. Tight squeeze!"

Cons: "That my seat was broken the whole time. I have a spinal injure and need to rotate positions while sitting. My seat was broken and my back hurt badly."

Pros: "Excellent, helpful steward."

Cons: "It took 90 (ninety!) minutes to get my suitcase at SFO. What a shitty, second-world airport. "Love" the crt tvs playing awfully low-quality "welcome to the US" videos. Way to showcase Silicon Valley's technical advances. Laughable."

Pros: "Overall it was a great experience."

Pros: "keep going"

Cons: "the hot meals were aweful"

Pros: "More leg room than United. Good food."

Cons: "11 hours of crying babies was too much. The practice of placing 4 cribs together on the bulkhead encouraged one baby to set the others off screaming. The toddler siblings then started fussing, the parents were then jumping up and down, jostling the other passengers, it was a nightmare! Hated every minute of it."

Cons: "Too cold"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed by 30 minutes but they did not inform us of the delay so everyone stood in line the entire time."

Pros: "Thai chicken dinner was good"
Cons: "Cold breakfast sandwich. It said on the package it was "oven able", the spread was rock hard, bread hard, would have been better warmed up. Leg room is tight"

Pros: "Wonderful overall"

Cons: "seat did not recline at all,"

Cons: "Delated and boarding was a mess"

Cons: "Big Screen at front of cabin when I am 2 rows behind kept me awake Boarding was a mess, not really enoughpreboarding space to hold everyone. Organizers were rude and signs were confusing."

Pros: "All"

Cons: "Too hot and stuffy. No air."

Cons: "I did not like the surprise of having to pay for a seat reservation, once I had purchased my tickets. This was costly and certainly unexpected."

Cons: "It was long terrible 24 hr journey with a pregnant wife"

Pros: "very nice and attentive personel"

Cons: "Better boarding experience with consistency in allowance for appropriate carry on luggage."

Pros: "They let me buy a beer at off hours from regular food and drink service. Movie choices were good."

Pros: "Crew kept the bathrooms tidy"
Cons: "USB port (for charging) was not working. The connector inside was destroyed. Light was not working. Crew member refused to serve the coffee saying that the plane was going thru turbulence which was not quite true. There was no vegetarian option as far as meals were concerned. He did not even offer fruits as substitute. One of the crew member did not seem friendly at all. rather grumpy at times. Most of them do not speak decent English so it is hard to communicate with them anyways."

Cons: "Average entertainment."

Cons: "Nothing bad. All is good."

Pros: "Attentive staff and service. I will always use Aeroflot when traveling to Russia."

Pros: "Very good service on board"
Cons: "Too long trip in short space"

Pros: "I had a feeling the service and the plane were for VIP persons."
Cons: "Nothing to complain of."

Cons: "Service. Exelent food."

Pros: "The food was good. A lot of space to stretch out and sleep on economy."
Cons: "I can't get over how much Delta/United/American airlines are worst in the industry. Aeroflot, however cannot compare."

Pros: "Meal and service"
Cons: "Trip still long more than 11 hours"

Pros: "Service is good."
Cons: "Food is ok, but inferior to Turkish or Uzbek airlines."

Cons: "Unable to selesct seating."

Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "There was only one food option. Sound on my tv station was broken."

Pros: "comfortable seat and leg space"
Cons: "I had 2 bug bites on my thighs... I hope the airline will clean and spray the upholstery."

Pros: "Professional service"

Pros: "All right"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "This was a cheap flight from LAX to ZRH with a layover in Moscow and that's about as good as it gets."
Cons: "The check in personnel was not that helpful and were very slow to check in everyone to their corresponding flights, and since kiosks were not available for aeroflot the experience was unavoidable. The plane economy class is really as uncomfortable as it gets for a transatlantic flight. There were no beer options for the flight (nor vodka which is weird), and flight attendants weren't that happy to talk to you in English. 5 hours wait at Moscow are the worst, if you're thinking on saving some dollars on a transatlantic flight this is not worth it."

Pros: "Everything is very professional and the food is of reasonable quality for an airline. The portions are small and there is nothing in the way of snacks either available for pickup or served between meals. Look at what Delta does - they keep those leftover items still in the wrapping and add any they did not seve and then keep those in the galley for passengers to help themselves. delta also serves one or two snacks on the intercontinental flights in addition to two meals!"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "No respect from crew, no beverages, everything no good!"

Pros: "Great movie selection, great staff, great food"
Cons: "There was not a full bar selection for drinks - most international flights have a wide array of drink selections. Aeroflot only offered one red or one white wine and only came around once"

Pros: "The leg room! And the meals were delicious"
Cons: "Boarding was slow and unorganized. At times VERY warm"

Pros: "Movies Not as tight as other airlines"
Cons: "Need more games like trivia Food was very bad crew did not come to pick up trash"

Pros: "Crew members were very nice and friendly. Our first meal was excellent but our second meal was ok."
Cons: "Boarding time was delayed and took a long time to board."

Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Everything perfect."

Cons: "Where was no fish selection in meals"

Pros: "Flying for 24 hours seemed like a daunting long day. But with the service and estra accommodation (hotel stay in Moscow) the 24 hours "flew" by ..."

Pros: "The service and seat comfort ability were the best"
Cons: "The boarding was not great. Everyone was boarded at the same time and priority seating was disregarded."

Pros: "price. service."

Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly. They took extra care in term of trying to accommodate my wheelchair situation."
Cons: "I wish the staff that escorted me and my fiancé was a little more fluent in English. It was hard to understand their instructions when they didn't speak much English."

Pros: "All the food and drinks available on the whole trip. The service was very professional."
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Same as before, very happy and pleased and enjoyment exceeded expectations. I highly recommended Aeroflot to all of my followers online!!!"

Pros: "Great service Nice staff Mostly comfortable Cheap!"
Cons: "The TVs didn't work properly and lag a lot. Food was average but offered several meals which was cool"

Cons: "Some of the crew were not working for you - they seem to act like you are inconvening their lives."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Limited leg room for economic class"

Cons: "More training in English would make communication better."
