Food tastiness was not good. The second meal had a bad a pizza or kiech like thing but was very bad smell that we couldn't eat.

Swiss, knowing the disfunction of the Brussels airport, should have contacted passengers connecting to their flight, and escorted them through an accelerated process, to assist in making the flight.

Cons: "Nada, I slept through this leg and the staff let me be."
Cons: "Flight delayed, sat on plane on ground for 4 hours then missed connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and accommodating. Chocolate always appreciated!"
Cons: "The passenger in front of me slammed into my knees. I am very tall. She was not but she sure got her seat back as far as possible in spite of having he bulkhead sear, so I had to be careful of my position the rest of the flight"
Cons: "The plane waited 40 minutes for delayed connecting flights to arrive. It's great for some passengers because they don't miss the transatlantic flight, but it causes others to miss their connections on the other end. It added to very stressful deplaning."
Pros: "The crew was quite pleasant and friendly - very accomodating"
Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated, the food was only passable. The chocolate was nice"
Pros: "Seats super comfy"

Cons: "A slight delay"
Cons: "I am still in Budapest and was not able to fly back on my Hungarian passport."
Pros: "The BUD-ZRH flight was on Swissair aircraft, not on Edelweiss or another low cost feeder airline. Over the years, I have flown both options, and while Edelweiss is a fine carrier, Swissair flights are still a cut above. Contributing to the positive experience was the friendly agent at check-in at BUD."

Pros: "-"

Thank you, Eva Baud"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "The tram ride to the plane"
Pros: "smooth flight, comfy seats"
Cons: "I would have like an announcement to let me know what times food will be served. I woke up just as the crew had passed my row for breakfast and then couldn't get the attention of the lady to serve me breakfast. A vegan option for the menu would be excellent.

Check in agent in Budapest was terribly rude and sent us off to the side to "go call united" because "there was something wrong with our ticket." He wouldn't explain what was wrong so we didn't know what to tell United. After standing in a corner for more than 30 mins, another agent offered to help us. It turns out the only problem was that we hadn't completed our check in online, (which we couldn't because the app would not let us input the correct expiration date for our passports) ...and he just didn't want to have to put our information in himself. We could have missed our flight because of his laziness!!! He was also the only person in the whole airport NOT wearing a mask.

Pros: "Easy boarding and nice crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour."
Cons: "Lufthansa in Frankfurt is a nightmare. Gates are very far apart and Lufthansa scheduled layovers are very short. We were running close to 2 km from one end of the airport to other with little kids barely making our flights. Boarding was on tarmac even for 747, once in rain once in 40C degrees."
Pros: "Very clean cabin, crew efficient and friendly"
Cons: "The sweet pastry is horrible, please bling back the cheese sandwich/ or similar."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "This was our return flight back to the US much better then going to Europe!"
Cons: "The only thing i wish all airlines would consider is to give us regular folks more room(space) not just the rich people in business or first class! On a 10+hr flight it is well needed!"
Pros: "The flight was 1.5 hours late that almost caused us to miss our connecting flight to Tel Aviv. The service and plane was just OK."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was just fair. The plane was small and bathrooms options limited"
Pros: "Met expectations"
Cons: "Nothing to note"
Cons: "I arranged assistance but nobody showed up."
Cons: "Requested assistance in Budapest for my 84 yr old mother that walks with a cane for the Frankfurt airport and Baltimore. No one showed up. Lots of walking at Frankfurt and having to board out on runway up all the steps was not easy."
Cons: "You lost my luggage !!"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the food was pretty good,"
Cons: "One of the crew members was rude to me"
Pros: "Exellent and smooth flight, thank you."
Pros: "Schedule was followed."
Cons: "At Budapest Airport only one check-in desk, #1 was shown on the big board for this flight and the airline Lufthansa was only shown above the check-in desk #1, which was dedicated for First/Business and M&M Gold status travellers only. Many economy class passengers queued there and at the end they were all redirected to check-in desk #3, as that was designated for Economy class passengers (however not any Lufthansa sign was shown above. When I mentioned to the ground crew (Celebi) that they should improve signs and not mishandle travellers, the person in charge (Nikolett Magyar) said to me arrogantly that they are right, and nothing they would do to improve the signs and passengers' information. This is far what I expect from LH representative, even if subcontracted and not an employee. That behaviour made my journey sour as travelling - especially with not a budget airline - is not just getting from A to B, but an experience which is worth to remember for good reasons, but not certainly for bad ones."
Pros: "The service was okay."
Cons: "Not enough space between the seats and the seats are very tough. So hard you can’t get comfortable"

Pros: "Crew was super nice, service great and plane comfort appropriate for the duration of the flight."
Cons: "Overhead compartments very narrow and could not fit small carryons."
Pros: "My flight from Budapest took off hour later then scheduled. We landed in Munich only ten minutes before the international flight's take off to San Francisco. Upon the Munich landing, eight of us were escorted on a special bus, with a special pass controll and on special routs to make sure we get on the plane on time. Our laggage managed to get on the same plane as well. Thank you Lufthansa!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like about my flight"
Pros: "Agents in the airport helped us avoid long passport lines in order to board connecting flight by putting us forward to front of lines. Otherwise we would have missed connecting flight."
Cons: "Nothng"
Pros: "Staff were so friendly! The plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "no seat tilt"
Cons: "Gate change made with no PA announcement; we’ll, if you must, ok. But beginning boarding without telling anyone at all, making no announcements, not even in Hungarian, seems weird."
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Too many stairs, far away from the connection flight."
Pros: "Flight from Budapest to Munich was slightly delayed and I had a tight connection time to begin with. The effort the Lufthansa staff made to get me to me connection was heroic."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed by well-over an hour, having me arrive an hour late for my connecting flight home. There were no efforts to assist me in locating my connecting flight, to set up any accommodations while at the connecting flight's airport for the additional 4 hours of waiting time, no apologies for making me late for wedding rehearsals (I'm the officiant!). I had to actively seek out the ticket counter for another airline, through which my connecting flight was re-routed."
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "They switched me to a different flight saying I won't make my connection due to high traffic at the BUD airport and they never told me that instead of arriving to JFK, they are flying to Newark airport. Having not known this at all, I had no ride home, super inconvenienced and I was 2 hours plus away from my home in Jersey. Horrible experience"

Cons: "Wifi onboard wasn't working.."

Friendly staff, very nice airplane.

Very poor snack and drink option

Food and service were excellent. Some of the crew were wonderful.

When boarding started, it was like refugees rushing to a life boat. Everyone was rushing to the front. Only one KLM staff standing there saying "... now is this group, yours is next,,,, we will call it out...." While he stopped some travelers, he did allowed some others passed without even checking their ticket. They have all the digital gears, and the screens to show the current boarding sequences, why don't they just use that. For some of us that did not have a excellent hearing, it was hard not trying to get closer to understanding what is going on.

Facilities for short connections.

Both airports totally understaffed. Awful experience.

Very cramped flight, overhead bins were all completely filled, and passengers had to fly with bags by their feet which was not very comfortable for me personally.
