Pros: "Liked the time of the flight."
Cons: "It left late."

Pros: "The crew was really great and helpful"
Cons: "Only thing that could have been better was ginger ale."

Cons: "The plane was SO hot and stuffy. It was an overnight flight, so they passed out blankets—but it was so hot no one used them. The air was stale, to the point of feeling claustrophobic."

Pros: "Crew, food, boarding, service"
Cons: "Very tight seats. Not enough of leg room"

Cons: "It would have better if the flight wasn’t 5 hours late."

Pros: "Good entertainment options"

Cons: "A little more leg room would be great"

Pros: "Hospitality was wonderful. The food and drinks were great and the constant entertainment made the 10+ hour flight bearable."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable but there is definitely not enough leg room especially if you are sitting in the middle seat. There should be some type of incentive given if you get stuck sitting between two complete strangers."

Pros: "Very nice crew. The flight attendant brought me a second dessert after I raved about it (excellent strawberry mousse!) Warm croissants and bread for breakfast! The even came with seconds. Yes! Delicious Easter eggs on both flights. Good selection of movies"
Cons: "The width of the seats. Tricky to have that elbow rest, it is you or your neighbor!"

Pros: "The food was decent and on board entertainment was pretty good."
Cons: "The boarding experience was terrible. We bought new lightweight International sized carry-on bags for our family of four and packed extremely light to keep each of bags under the 8 kg weight limit for carry-on bags. The crew required us to check them anyway! So incredibly annoying."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Everything was great"

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. We received a confirmation email for two of the tickets but not for the other two so we assumed the other ones did not go through as we used two different credit cards."
Cons: "We purchased the last two again and when we showed up at the ticket counted they let us know that we bought 6 tickets!!!!!!!! We would like to be reimbursed for the two tickets we did not receive the confirmation emails for. How can we go about it?"

Pros: "The crew was professional and helpful. The flight attendant was especially kind to the children giving them activities and toys to play with. The seats were spacious and comfortable. The food was good."
Cons: "It’s a small thing, but it’d be nice to have more variety of movies to choose from."

Pros: "Swiss Airlines Saff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "0"

Pros: "Smooth ride, most of the crew was very welcoming"

Cons: "No information on the flight about how to proceed with our missed conncetions nor anyone to meet in Zurich at gate with information."

Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 1 hour at least after overlay of 4 hours. I missed my flight from Vienna to Yerevan and the portion of my trip was detoured to Moscow and from there to Yerevan instead of 3 hours took me 8 hours. As a result of rushing and running in Vienna to catch my flight to Yerevan I feel and injured my hip, I would like a compensation , Please contact me at armine100@cox.net or phone 703-609-8649"

Pros: "The lovely nice stewardess and Crew kindness."
Cons: "I have faced the horrific flight ever in my life last days, I never imagined a completely 4-5 Hours such horror turbulence on a long Night flight. thank God we made, and thank the lovely crew for their super support.."

Pros: "Staff friendly and flight very smooth"
Cons: "The breakfast was very poor. Two different servings of OJ(why?), non fat yoghurt and bread. Coffee came with only one cream. 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."

Cons: "They put us in different seats. My 7 year old and 3year old were all sitting separately and we could not switch with anyone. The air hostesses were not as helpful as other airlines."

Pros: "On time and good service!"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "There was one flight attendant that was rude. The reat were very nice."

Cons: "Nasty landing, last 5 min plane dropped 4to 5 times for whatever reason. Felt like it was a sesna"

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"
Cons: "Boarding problem. But I have to congratulate the crew for their efforts to overcome the problem in the best possible way"

Cons: "Very narrow seats. Seat in front reclines in your face. Terrible experience for 100% full long haul flight from LAX to ZRH"

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"
Cons: "Boarding was late and we were asked to stand in line down the hallway for an extended period of time Movie selection small"

Cons: "I paid extra for legroom but was in the main walkway so my feet were stepped on for the entire flight."

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "It was good"

Pros: "Nice Aircraft"
Cons: "Unfriendly crew"

Pros: "That is wasn't crowded"
Cons: "That I had a 5 hour delay and I was t informed about it earlier"

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: "Great entertainment center. Complimentary alcohol and snacks. All this masks the torture of sitting in a way -too-small seat for 11 hours plus."

Pros: "I loved the food, the crew, and the entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "entertainment system was good. Pilot was nice crew was pretty nice ."
Cons: "No leg room uncomfortable seats food has gone way down hill since 2 years ago. None of the good chocolates anymore. check in people at the gates were cold fish."

Cons: "I have used the same carryon on several trips & only Swiss would not let me carry it inside telling me it was a bit high. Disappointed & surprised since never before I was told I had to check-in my carryon containing some essential items."

Cons: "I was asked to move from my reserved seat for another flyer"

Pros: "The straff is very nice. this made the flight a positive for me"
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: "Seat was comfortable, good movies, etc"

Cons: "We are a little hard of hearing. It was hard to hear the attendant when giving directions over the intercom. The speech was garbled and directions spoken too fast. I am not referring to the safety speech. Recommend slowing down so that we have more time to process what was spoken."

Pros: "Everything was easy"
Cons: "Business class seats are snug for big people compared to other airlines"

Pros: "Excellent airline"
Cons: "The business seats could have been wider. I have sat on business class other airlines and the seat was a bit wider but overall still great experience"

Pros: "The crew was very good and there was enough leg room."
Cons: "The dinner option was underwhelming."

Pros: "Excellent service!"

Cons: "I cancelled this flight online, then I called to let them know I was getting emails, but that I had cancelled. For two days I received emails about delayed flights and now this."

Pros: "The business class seats are the best we’ve had. Plenty of room, nicely laid out, good organization design. The blankets were fluffy and very comfortable. Crew was super attentive and friendly. For such a long flight, it was very pleasant, will highly recommend."

Pros: "The crew were very attentive, they tried hard to help me with comfort, drinks etc. I didnt have food as it was so good in the Virgin Clubhouse!"
Cons: "The bed! When you flip it flat its rock hard, and the matress they provide is useless! Need foam matress to really make it more comfotable. If the seat reclined another few inches i wouldnt bother flipping it."

Pros: "Boarding process was very efficient and crew was very pleasant and helpful. Seats were reasonable for economy."
Cons: "Meals were very small but tasty. Movie options were random but enough to keep you occupied."

Pros: "Smooth overall. Food mediocre but edible. (More than I could say for other airlnes.) Price also good."
Cons: "Lots of flight schedules changes. Missed connecting flight as a result. No time left to deal with customs and baggage."

Pros: "Super friendly and helpful crew, food etc was fantastic very enjoyable flight. Thank you"

Pros: "Sharp good atention in counter"

Cons: "Seats were tight."

Pros: "Everything (with the exception of the subject below), thank you. One thing that really surprised me, though, is how much I liked the eggs (on both flights) and what went with the eggs, like the spinach and potatoes and bacon on this flight and the potatoes and sausage (and was there something else?) on the next flight. Kudos for making something that has got to be cheap taste good. Thanks."
Cons: "Come to think of it, there was one thing that I didn't particularly like, and that was how the headphones only worked on one side only (there was only audio on one side). At first I thought that maybe I had just gotten bad headphones, but the my next flight was the same: the headphones also only played audio on one side."

Pros: "The seats of the economy class are a little bit bigger than the rest of the airlines and are so much confortable to sleep."
Cons: "The crew speaks to quick and the Australian accent is not always easy to understand"

Pros: "Lots of leg room, even in economy."
Cons: "Entertainment choices were a bit sparse."

Cons: "No flight"

Cons: "Minimal food available between departure and arrival meals; 10 hrs or so is a long time to get by on potato chips."

Pros: "The boarding, the seats."
Cons: "The food was so-so, and I did not get my choices, perhaps because I was at the back."

Pros: "Flight was close to being on time. I was able to get a lot of sleep on the flight."

Pros: "Our ticket was canceled apparently due to an error by the airline. Very unhappy about that. The airline couldn't care less."

Pros: "Smoothest long flight I’ve ever had. No hassles checking in, boarding or leaving the aircraft. Bags checked through to final destination without any problem. Good employees at the check-in counter and at the boarding gate. Service was good at LAX."
Cons: "Cabin service somewhat spotty. I was not served breakfast and had to ask for a meal even though all those sitting around me were served. My wife did not get the coffee she requested even though it was promised twice. Trash accumulated at our seat making use of the tray awkward. I tried to pre-pay for extra luggage on-line before the flight but the web site would not allow me to do so. We paid $100 per extra bag at check-in."

Pros: "Staff was very friendly"
Cons: "Headphone jacks are costume, could not use my own."

Pros: "Crew was very solicitous...food was quite good.."
Cons: "Baggage was very slow in arriving. ..45-60 minutes"

Pros: "Overall comfortable journey"

Cons: "We weighted our hand luggage at the counter and then they ask again during boarding little confusing"

Pros: "Seat is very comfortable"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly, and helpful. I also liked that the exit row that I was given had more than enough leg room, the dinner was really good for airplane food and snacks were great also. The attendant that I had for my section also told me that all food and drinks were free so they gave me a few extra adult drinks here and there which is a plus for how long the flight was going to be. The movie selection is great also having some on there that are still in theaters is a huge plus."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed way out of order, they made so many mistakes and nobody knew what to do, then you have the pushy passengers that are sitting coach getting mad that you're boarding before them. Breakfast left me wanting something else, lets just say this if you are given the choice of something vs french toast, take the something."

Pros: "My first time flying to Europe! I love the service from the attendants but my seat mate made it uncomfortable to seat in my seat. Overall great experience"

Pros: "The enforcement of the quiet time to sleep on the flight. The excellent meals. The quality of the entertainment system."

Pros: "nice new seats"
Cons: "The entre food top was torn, apparently opened before I got it, also there was no salad dressing. ATTN RICHARD BRANSON: Are you concerned for our environment? The head stewardess would not refill my sports water bottle after I asked her nicely, instead she poured water into a cup which she threw away, wasting plastic unnecessarily. I told her I did not like wasting plastic and she appeared to not enjoy what I had to say. This was the same lady who handed me my dinner. Rest of crew was great."

Pros: "Crew, fabulous, Plane configuration, GENEROUS, just the best flight I've experiences in a very long time!"
Cons: "Some meal choices were a bit sparse. That's my only complaint!"

Pros: "Nothing because I was given a middle seat"

Cons: "Nothing to complain about."

Pros: "The service went a mile farther. It is my favourite airlines!"

Pros: "Very courteous and professional crews. Clean and comfortable plane. Pilots handled delay and weather superbly. Dinner was delicious."
Cons: "Dinner was great but could have used more snacks. Breakfast was ok. Movies were dated but okay."

Pros: "Was a comfy flight thanks to not having anyone sitting next to me. If someone wouldve been next to me it wouldnt have been as nice because the seats are too bunched for international travel."
Cons: "My seat wouldnt recline properly. There were limited food options for non pork eaters. No outlets for power. How can you operate an international flight with nothing provided for those who need to charge their devices after some time. Not a smart design move."

Pros: "Everything was great ! The staff very nice and the plane is absolutely amazing .."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg but there was no difference between normal and extra .."

Pros: "Appreciated stewardess comping wine because my husband and I couldn't sit together"
Cons: "Don't assume you will get a good fare just because you book 2.5 months in advance, have a Delta AmEx card, and use some of your earned miles"

Cons: "The boarding process at LAX was awful. I’m sure the horrible shuttle wait and transfer from terminal to terminal is the airport’s fault, but the airline did not do anywhere near enough to inform passengers of what was in store. It was confusing and annoying."

Pros: "best meal ive had in so long service was great the captain anniuncements were clear and detailed"

Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."

Pros: "I did not like nothing"
Cons: "Custom took for ever they only had 2 agents working and I Missed my fight to nyc"

Pros: "Not much . The boarding process took forever and the lines through TSA took longer .. no direction to lines and I was standing for 10 min before saying something to someone and they said o there’s another line."

Cons: "Hot meals and different drinks available like coke or sparkling water, with payment if necessary ."

Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "encouraging passengers to do more social distancing at gates"

Cons: "I loved everything about Turkish Airlines. Their food is one of the best! You can eat it all and actually tastes good! The level of individual service, unbiased service, is amazing. The crew is polite, well kept, and dare I say very good looking. All my flights with them departed and arrived as scheduled, always!"

Pros: "My worst journey."

Cons: "Plane was delayed and boarding was a bit confusing at the start but then quickly fixed"

Pros: "The # of movies."
Cons: "I sat next to 2 children. It smelled like baby poo off and on for the whole flight. There are no individual AC so the entire plane was on one temp which was stuffy and smelly at times. If some one passed gas, you could for sure smell it. I told the flight attendant and they agreed before I could describe so it wasn’t just me."

Pros: "food was good, and my business class seat was okay."
Cons: "First flight (to Istanbul) delayed, and nobody cared to help with making connecting flight booked on the same Turkish Airlines (THY)! Different THY employees sent me to three (3) different places (with two suitcases in hand) at opposite ends of the huge Istanbul airport before finally pointing to the Business Lounge and causing my missing the connection. Had they directed me correctly and cared about my first delay, I would not have missed it. I lost the first-night pay at the hotel of my final destination, my friends lost their time and money on making trips to pick me up, my ailing relatives were in pieces worrying about me, and so on. In sum, a fun trip (NOT!) ... If you care for some details, here you go... They did not inform their own connecting flight about my delay. Despite issuing me a boarding pass, nobody was looking for me or announcing where I should go. I spent an hour running around the airport at THY employees' misdirections. Business Lounge revealed I was already issued a ticket for next morning's flight (without informing me via my email they had or otherwise). I then looked at their own monitor and saw a much earlier flight the same night on a partner airline. I had to point to that flight, and they issued me a ticket there. No apology, no offer of any compensation. I understand that flights may delay, and I could forgive an honest mistake in misdirection. But this was a wide-spread incompetence and utter unwillingness to help their own business class (!) customer. I can only imagine what pains the economy travelers had to endure! Just to give you a flavor, after realizing that my connecting flight was boarding (when my delayed first flight arrived in Istanbul), I asked the crew to direct me to the best route to my connection. They pointed to the gate personnel. The gate personnel who greeted us DID NOT KNOW about my connection and sent me to the opposite side of the airport without notifying the connecting flight to wait for me. No help/transport was offered. When I made my way to the connecting gate with my luggage, the flight was gone. Nobody to be found from THY around the gate. A neighboring THY gate's employee directed me to the "Care Point" desk far away. A sizable line emerged there, with only two agents working it. I asked one of them if business class was served there. They said, "Yes, get in line, please". After 30 minutes in that line, I approached a "Care Point" agent (a cruel name for no-care-whatsoever service) who told me "You need to go to the business class desk upstairs. Economy only here!" No apology, no expression of concern, yelling "Next!" when I told her that I wasted 30 minutes of valuable time in line at their direction and would appreciate her doing something to help or making sure I reach the right person. Off to the "business desk" I go... another 15-min. run in a different direction with luggage in hand. That desk could not help either...ARGHH. Do I need to continue?.."

Pros: "Easy communication and promptness"

Pros: "Old fashion service very attentive crew and plane very clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Very odd in boarding as business class seemed we should have been 1st"

Cons: "Missed the connecting flight because of flight boarding delay on the original destination. The airline did not accommodate my non-English speaking parents for overnight."

Cons: "Movies varaiety"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The flight was 5 hrs late. I have put 2 older passengers with knee problems. they have to go through the satires then what's the point of getting wheelchair???? you guys took $250 more on each tickets so the passengers can reach to their destination faster. but you ended up delaying the flights. and i asked around to many people after this and they told me that you always do it.
