Pros: "I do not know how to go about contesting his, but we bought 4 tickets to South Africa on Swiss air and Edelweiss via Zurich.

Media screen and audio did not work, and usb charger kept turning off. Barely able to recharge phone over the span of 10 hour flight! My next neighbor had same problem."

Pros: "Friendly team, great food and snacks and tons of movies to choose from."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Food was good for airline food."
Cons: "Swiss air seems to have lost its service edge. The flight attendants just stood around and watched while I struggled with my cane and my bag. They only seemed to snap into action to tell people what to do or not do. I flew the same route two years ago and staff was really kind. Maybe the working conditions have changed; they seemed harried and annoyed (in coach, at least). And I don't think they had to stand in line for an _hour_ to check in (thanks, LAX)."
Pros: "Food great!"
Cons: "Limited space , very narrow and not very clean. I seated next to a dog, pet. The whole trip the dog was sitting on the floor next to me:(, although it was a very quiet and good dog. Crew not very friendly . They were tired I believe ."
Pros: "Flight attendants where very nice and attentive. Good choice of movies and shows for adults and kids. I usually don't eat airplane food but it looked fresh and my kids enjoyed the breakfast very much with fresh baked bread and croissant. My flight was delayed by one hour but it was a problem caused by the airport not the airline. I still made my connection and I received my suitcaises right away."
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic"
Pros: "The crew made the right call after the Swiss computers shutted down"

Pros: "Traveling with 3 kids, Swiss kept our seats the same, had our special meals sorted, crew was kind and courteous. Entertainment for everyone."
Cons: "Overnight flight lights too bright, economy seats very narrow (and that's all we ever fly), it was extremely difficult to sleep."
Cons: "I paid extra for a seat with more room but found that the seat did not offer any more room than the average coach class seat in any other airline. That was unexpectedly disappointing."
Pros: "The larding was terrible. I came in a wheelchair but am able to walk short distances. I spoke to man at the gate about boarding early and he said he would come and get me. But he did not and I had to push and shove with everyone else as their is no plan. Awful! Service was good. Lots of water and juice brought round in the night of"
Pros: "So far so good."
Pros: "Flight crew and gate agents were amazing"

Pros: "The entertainment consoles are great, plane is modern and clean, staff on board are very considerate and helpful. Flight left and landed on time and our luggage arrived intact. Everything that we paid for we got."
Cons: "The space between the seats is very small, and the seats recline very far, I found myself a bit too tall to fit in them comfortably, as even reclined my neighbors seat was nearly pressed against my nose. My much shorter girlfriend did not have this problem, and slept through the whole flight. SWISS only has one or two check in agents at LAX, and the wait was about 3hr to process the 300-odd passengers on our 777. I know they're only running a flight or two a day from LA, but I am sure there's a speedier and more efficient way to check us all in."
Pros: "Crew was really nice, comfortable seat, great experience"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "I loved the food, the crew, and the entertainment."
Pros: "entertainment system was good. Pilot was nice crew was pretty nice ."

Cons: "i work with tech stuff and i couldnt find the switch for english on the entertainment system, or how to turn it off so the glow would bother me."
Pros: "very nice flight, good attendants, plentiful with food and drink although dinner was dry (pasta) but tasted fine. Planes (I had to transfer) were on time and efficient. My carry on luggage was weighed which was unusual to me. It was overweight but the kind clerk checked my bag through with no charge as a favor. A pleasant surprise!"
Cons: "Had to make a lot of calls to clarify things. Website not always clear. An example is that I paid extra to reserve seats early and when I went online to do other things, although it showed that I had a seat reserved, it also said no reservations were being taken for the flight in a highlighted notice. Turns out it was just a general blanket message but to me it looked like my seat may have been cancelled. All phone representatives were courteous and helpful although sometimes their accents were strong and challenging to understand but they didn't mind repeating themselves until I understood."
Pros: "Crew was great, on time flight, clean plane."

Cons: "Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows"
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."

Pros: "The entertainment options were good."
Pros: "Good services!"
Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food.

Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."

Pros: "Great service and clean."
Cons: "Seats itself not really ok, neighbor any size gonna touch you every time. Crew not ready to do anything with passengers with little kids, only my headset helped me survive. So I could sleep because of this issue only 1 hour for 12 hours flight. Good luck. As second issue doesn’t happen too often"
Pros: "Quick boarding and departure. Good selection of films."
Cons: "Customer service. Leg room."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice. Timeliness of meals and service was nice. Boarding process was efficient."
Cons: "First time I’ve traveled that I may have preferred an economy ticket instead of my premium economy seat. It was like sitting in a rock hard shell. Seat does not recline but rather slides forward slouching you down and hurting your back the second you move the seat, let alone 11 hours of sitting."
Cons: "My flight was 5 hours late. They lost my bag with expensive stuff."
Pros: "They were very accommodating"
Cons: "Better selection of movies"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on time. Food was tasty and plentiful. Amenities were clean."

Pros: "uneventful flight, good movie selection. Crew was polite and thorough."
Cons: "Very crowded. Sears are so close together. . doctors recommend getting up periodically and walking around to improve circulation.

Pros: "Crew, and food was great"
Cons: "Delayed toooooo long"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "The seats was not comfortable"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seating. Only saving grace was I had two seats to myself. Not sure I would have kept my sanity and feelibgbib my legs if I had to share."
Cons: "Slight delay in departure"
Cons: "They hold me with no reason until I was late from my connecting flight. They made me pay taxes for alcohol that I purchased from duty free. Charge me $300 for next available flight. Horrible!!!"
Cons: "Attitude of the personnel"
Pros: "Economy travelers provided with 2 hot meals, earplugs, mask, blanket, slippers, pillow. Bathrooms have toothbrush/toothpaste. Wonderful experience all around."
Cons: "This time food wasn’t organized well, because in the menu was two dishes, beef stroganoff or some fish, when came our turn to choose, we didn’t have choice, because only the fish was left. Second time was fish(again) and chicken, and also the salad was made from fish too... this time we got lucky, there was a choice because the serving started from our side. The chicken wasn’t good though, And still it is too much fish, and it didn’t taste good. I can compare , because I had other Aeroflot flights, and the food was really good, compare to this one."
Cons: "booking this flight was a nightmare. after several calls i was told i can upgrade to a seat with more legroom in economy plus at the airport counter for 12 Euros. it then turned out it cost me $80 for just one leg of the trip, and it wasn't economy plus, but a very narrow seat in an exit row right next to a toilet. The phone customer service was rude, unprofessional, and uninformed."

Cons: "Food is edible, but doesn't taste good. Limited vegetarian options"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and food was pretty good, even got an ice cream!!!"
Cons: "I can never sleep on a plane and TV wasnt working :( It worked for the safety video, but stopped right after... for the whole duration of the flight... its hard to stay entertained on 12.5 hours flight... i only had one game on my phone... it felt like 48 hours... hopefully it doesn't happen on the way back"
Pros: "Plenty of food, meals and snacks. Plenty of new movies to watch."
Cons: "The crew had no smile, neither a hospitable attitude. The food in the second meal seemed stale. I did not finish the meal for fear of getting sick. The entertainment system was the slowest I have ever used in my life. The glass holder for my seat was broken. It took me 7-8 times calling assistance that someone finally came, which took at least 40 minutes. And last but not the least there was water dripping on the passenger next to me."
Cons: "I haven't flown Aeroflot since early 1990s. Will not fly it again. Boarding was a mess. Then sat on the plane for almost 2 hours. Don't even try their food. Legroom in economy worse than on US flights. Touchscreen didn't work. And, they left ALL the luggage in LAX. Spent 4 hours in SVO filling out papers for the lost/delayed luggage."
Pros: "I met an English speaking Russian that is trying to help me out."
Cons: "My gear bag is missing. It never arrived on my flight."
Pros: "Food was nice plus vine"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and super helpful! Which was awesome since I don't travel internationally too much! But when I was running late for my connection due to a delay they made sure I made my flight on time. If only my Carry on bag would have made it too (it cannot run as fast as me through the airport). But overall, incredible experience!"
Cons: "The was okay (for airplane food it was pretty good), then my tv broke halfway through the flight so the last 6 hours were a little longer. But still an incredible time!"

Pros: "The employees were great to work with!"
Cons: "The food...even in Bus class was a little ehhh. Also on the transfer from Moscow to Milan....Our bags weren't transferred with us. The agency that works the lost luggage cases was except, however 2 days without fresh clothes is terrible on any account."

Cons: "Flight was delayed because of slow boarding process. Missed my connection as a result."
Pros: "I flew in the business class cabin direct non-stop Los Angeles -> Moscow Russia. It was a pretty normal business class experience, nothing too special, but nothing lacking. Mostly I slept for 9 hours in the fully lay flat business class seats and they left me alone."
Cons: "While serving dinner, the flight attendants acted REALLY stressed out, as if what they were doing was super ultra important that they get it right or they would be fired (or taken out back and shot). It was a strange vibe. I mean, we're all trapped in the air for an 11 hour flight, it isn't like I have an important meeting to attend in 5 minutes. :-) The flight attendants should smile, say hello, be professional but relaxed!!"
Pros: "The dessert with dinner was the best part."
Cons: "The food was hard to swallow and I was not offered enough drinks or beer/wine."
Pros: "I absolutely enjoyed everything about my flight from LA to Moscow. The plane was very nice, the food was good, and there were multiple drink services. I appreciated the slippers and eye mask at every seat. The in-flight video system worked well and had lots to choose from. I especially enjoyed watching subtitled Russian movies to get a taste of the culture."
Pros: "Good, efficient flight and route from LAX to RIX. Crew was very hospitable."
Cons: "Entertainment systems were a little slow and the food is smaller portions, so if you're an eater it is recommended to take lots of extra snacks."

Pros: "ON time Flight"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "HOT. The plane was 90% of the time. It would tease you just long enough to start to fall asleep, then bam! You wake up in a sweat. It was 9.5 of 10 hours of a low boil sweat. The most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. Apparently a known issue, including the condensation leaks on people sitting next to the window. (Guessing that's why the A/C was left off.) Also one of the bathrooms was quickly out of service. Another would auto flush if you tried to sit down. And another the green light was on whether occupied/locked or not. So 3 of 4 in Economy had at least some kind of malfunction. The power tinting windows never responded to the buttons - assumed they were on master override. Finally, the seats were pretty compact. I would describe World Traveler on BA (aka Economy) more like the new compact Basic Economy offered on other carriers. Seats were very small and leg room consumed by some kind of service boxes. I'm hoping to all things holy that our return flight is actually an American Air flight instead of BA direct. Really afraid of another 10+ hours of torture."

Pros: "Nice plane. Great movies"
Cons: "Breakfast poor quality. Disorganised boarding"
Cons: "It was actually a flight operated by American Airlines, and I am done with this company. Not comfortable, rude staff and more than average food."
Pros: "We paid extra ($260) to sit on top.The arrangement was nice. I had a panic attack because I felt stifled and my asthma was bad because the lady in front of me put new perfume on each time she went to the restroom. Staff helped keep me on the galley and talked to me to keep me calm. The stewardess was from Spain, but I've forgotten her name. Nice lady."
Cons: "Late. Flight left late out of LAX. We missed our connection...again. We've taken BA many times and always get stuck in London. You have to be bussed everywhere and go through security again, even in the same terminal! We ended up up in the International Holding Pen for 4 hours waiting for the next flight with 2 small kids. Again. Last time we received €800 for our inconvenience. This time we got £20 for food for a family of 4. Yuck."
Pros: "Food was decent and entertainment was okay."
Cons: "Plane was extremely old and loud. London did not have a gate number until 20 minutes before boarding. Many people were late to the gate because of that."

Pros: "Nice spacious seats"
Cons: "That you checked my carry-on"
Cons: "No wifi"

Cons: "Terrible service, delayed flight, lost luggage, no apologies and no accountability. I was delayed for 12h, had to stay the night in a hotel in London (the hotel was the best part) but I had to freeze since I didn't have my luggage or expect to be in London at that time."
Pros: "nothing - they misinformed me left and right so I couldnt make properly informed decisions and then denied me boarding and told me to pay for a new flight after having spent over 750 and 3 days 2 nights at the airport due to the mishaps."
Cons: "staff that gives the correct information so u can properly plan for the check in and boarding procedures and compassion to advocate to let me onto the flight they made me jump thru hoops just to get onto."
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Multiple delays for my flight. First the departure was delayed which I know can happen. Then we boarded and sat for over an hour before take off. Captain made up a story about the plane needed gas and said we would take off in 15 minutes. An hour and 15 minutes later we finally took off."

Pros: "the crew did really made sure we had what we needed."
Cons: "Should have made an announcement that the 3g cellular coverage was turned on. Went on in the middle of the flight and had no idea. My phone was in the overhead bin and I thought it was off. When I landed I had an outrageous fee. Should be given a choice to use it or not."
Cons: "TAP was late getting the first flight out, offered almost no help and almost left 22 people stranded in Portugal and tried to get us to pay for a new flight at our own expense. Customer service was terrible. Multiple people in line said they had been stranded in Portugal by TAP airlines before."
Cons: "Good flight, on time. Service ok. Captain did a good job communicating. Nice touch with wine at dinner."
Pros: "Entertainment was fine"
Cons: "On my ticket I selected the lacto-ovo vegetarian meal and I never received it. I told the flight attendant and he said “we don’t have any more, chicken or fish”. I said “I am a vegetarian” and he gave me a tiny salad, a bread roll, and a chocolate mousse. I was very hungry as I hadn’t eaten in 9 hrs"

Pros: "We really enjoyed TAP Air Portugal and expect to fly with them again. Comfortable seats, pillow, blanket, and MEALS! Good ones with actual silver! USB charging port at every seat, with a good selection of movies. Great airline for a great price!"
Pros: "There was a major problem with my booking and I went through almost 2 hours or stress thinking I would not be let on the flight. This has never happened with Kayak. But it was really bad. TAP insisted they could not book me on as Azores Airlines from Pinta Delgado to Toronto was not booked for me. I had to call bothe airlines. With no help from the desk. I finally got both to confirm and at the last minute was allowed on the flight. I chose this route to have a nice couple of days in Portugal and I will have. But the flight start was really upsetting."
Cons: "I like Kayak. But am very concerned about booking through in the future with this treatment."
Pros: "I did like that the flight wasnt full"

Pros: "Great food. Arrive and flying"

Pros: "The staff were somewhat helpful, and fairly friendly"
Cons: "The seats for a 5-hour flight couldn’t recline. The plane was freezing, there was no entertainment on the flight, and the seating wasn’t evenly distributed. There were many economy rows with only one person, then rows right next to that full with three people. The food wasn’t good either."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled few hours before departure. I called the customer service and they a flight to Tel Aviv a day after with 3 stops. It was imposible to accept, so I've cancelled and bouhgt another ticket from other airline and ask for refund. Three months later I still waiting for the money. Not recommend at all TAP."
Pros: "Food was good, but no champagne offered. The attendants were nice, though."
Cons: "It was not a business class at all. I was put in the same big bus together with econom class passengers. There was not supposed to be any business class in this airplane, since chairs are all the same and not comfortable. No entertainment of any kind at all. It's a waste of money."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Late takeoff. Late arrival. Had to run thru the terminal to catch the next leg. Lost luggage."
Pros: "I was on a 7 hour flight and the TAP airline service was very good. I had requested a vegan meal and they were able to accommodate me with no problem. Also they had a great selection of movies."
Cons: "I didn’t like that all the soap dispensers in both bathrooms were empty the whole flight. But good thing for the wet naps they offered and antibacterial I had in my purse."
Pros: "The stewards and stewardessen were very professional and friendly"
Pros: "Food was abundant and pretty good. I paid $91.95 US (think it was 75 euro) for the exit row and felt this was money well spent."
Cons: "They charged me $90 for my luggage. Several weeks or perhaps even months after I booked, I received an e-mail saying I had booked Super Cheap Economy or some such. It had a link to pay for 'additional services' but not luggage. At the time of booking, I checked and the price given was $35. So, I have protested the additional $55 with my CC company and will see what happens. BTW the luggage was not overweight. They turned off all the lights, including my personal reading lamp, so I could not read and had to just sit there doing nothing. That really blew big chunks. I only got two small glasses of wine."
Pros: "Staff good very pleasant. Entertainment good."
Cons: "Bit late into Lisbon and luggage left behind."
Cons: "Half an hour late and waiting additional 15 minutes before being able to leave the aircraft"
Cons: "My flight to Miami was delayed due to weather. I missed my connection to LHR, therefore missed my TAP flight to Portugal. I called TAP (before the flight) and they would not change the flight because I went through a travel site. My $240 ticket was lost, and I had to pay over $900 for a new one. I doubt I will use an internet site again because I will unlikely get a refund and it was impossible to change the ticket. Feel awful!"
Pros: "Both check ins (to and from Boston) the staff were rude. No information, just alot of speaking Portuguese to other staffers while my family and I stood there. The flight and crew were good, clean, kind and efficient."
Cons: "There was a strike in Lisbon. Thousands of people trying to go through security and four people working the booths. Plus NO information. Just chaos, bad feelings and HOURS of standing in lines. Stressful. Will NEVER go to Lisbon again."
Pros: "Honestly I didn't like anything because before I boarded , I was charged for all my luggage . They said that tap changed there policy , how I suppose to know ? Why didn't it say anything while purchasing a ticket"
Cons: "I was charged for my 3 luggage . It's not fair . I still have the invoice , before ibbook the ticket it said that you get free luggage ."
Pros: "Flight crew was very nice."

Cons: "seats were quite small. no onboard entertainment."
Pros: "The trip back home to NY from Lisbon was great, flight staff was attentive and courteous, the plane was clean, the entertainment made the time go by fast and the warm blanket and pillow provided a comfortable experience."

Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "The sit are very uncomfortable, no leg room. The audio was not working, no entertainment. The flight attendant gave us a card to call customer service, to provide for improvement on these flight."
Pros: "Nothing. Staff unhelpful and unorganized."
Cons: "They seem super unorganized. You wait on a line to check-in, then another one to board and then another one to actually sit down. I've enevet been on an airline that has such long waits."
Cons: "Limited leg room."
Pros: "Andrera Araijo was extremely friendly, attentive and energetic. She smiled through out the entire flight. Whether she was attending to me or a fellow passenger it was all smiles. She definitely made smile. God bless you Andrera!"

Cons: "Check in desk people in Lisbon were very obnoxious and rude."
Pros: "Food and attention"

Cons: "I cant think of anything. It's a long trip that can be tiresome. So you can tell the airline tries to make it as pleasant as possible ."
Pros: "The service was excellent. The help on board was extremely professional and polite. There was plenty of leg room and the bathrooms were fairly large too."
Pros: "Crew was kind, not robots. They disciplined the several children running in the aisles throughout the flight as their parents did not. Medal of bravery and honor to them! D"
