Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The crew responsible for boarding did not provide timely information (especially on who boarding order) and "made up" for this lack of communication by yelling and screaming at passengers as if they were cattle."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The aircraft was horrible No space at all even after paying for a better seat"
Cons: "I’m a small person & your seating is cramped & uncomfortable!"
Pros: "The entire process from boarding in Chicago until arrival in Athens was very smooth."

Cons: "No leg room due to the airplane box under the seat in front of me. Very difficult to straighten legs out, difficult to get comfortable."
Cons: "My special meal wasn’t available."
Pros: "Everyone was so nice!"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Cons: "Almost missed my third plane, too."
Pros: "Online check-in was easy, boarding was smooth, and time on the flight seemed to go by quickly. Seats were a little too close together in economy to fully relax but that's the nature of economy seating. The dinner was very tasty, crew was friendly."
Cons: "My seat-back entertainment system did not work, but I had not planned to use it anyway. For the other three members of my family it did work, but not very well. Fortunately they had other options they brought with them."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Are the seats getting smaller or am I getting bigger?"
Pros: "Captain kept us informed regarding takeoff"
Cons: "Sitting too long"
Pros: "Fast flight and crew was amazing."
Cons: "Seats are terrible. Food is just ok, could me better, I remember 2012 when I was flying first time with Swiss (same route), food was excellent and seats were much more comfortable. I’m thinking to get back on Turkish Airlines although the trip is much longer, they are much better in both above mentioned segments."
Pros: "Excellent Service. Excellent food."
Pros: "The flight was perfect until we hit horrible turbulence. 1 out of every 4 people was throwing up. We had to redirect to Milan."
Cons: "Swiss air is completely inept at handling a very normal reroute due to weather. 200 displaced people are standing in line. I’ve been here 5 hours and have not heard a word of announcement from them, our questions are rudely thwarted, and they continue to take half-an-hour to an hour per person with uncertain results. Give use new flights or a hotel."
Pros: "I hope this carrier grows by leaps and bounds. The plane was new & clean, the pilots executed flawless takeoff & landing, the flight attendants were friendly to a fault, the plane left on time & arrived early. Round trip Orlando-Venice was $980 round trip. The only niggling detail was the somewhat limited selection of movies."
Pros: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."

Cons: "Airline lost my flight, no explanation and or apology. Seats were terrible could not move when seat in front was reclined. No economy plus, no reciprocal consideration for gold status on star alliance except for one checked bag free. I will never fly Swiss again"
Cons: "There was a supposed difficulty with my entry in Europe when I tried to Check into Chicago. I thought that I had to cancel my flight. Swiss air representatives had to do much consultation, which took nearly an hour, while I was standing there the whole time. At the end, I was thanked for my patience and told all should be well and not even given a small upgrade for the distress this caused me. Traveling is disagreeable in general now, and personally, even moreso after this episode."

Pros: "Very friendly staff, a wide variety of entertainment options."

Pros: "The flight crew were friendly and helpful. The food served on our flight to Zurich was delicious. We loved the big movie selection which helped pass the time."
Cons: "The leg room was terrible on this plane. If anyone reclined their seats, you were trapped and could barely get out of the row to get up or go to the bathroom. Boarding was a bit like herding cats and everyone was jammed up trying to get on without any orderly direction."

Pros: "Flight boarding was quick and fast and food was great."
Cons: "Seats had no room and if someone in front reclined the tv was right in your face. Also what happen to having individual fans above.

Overall it was okay."
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "The selection of movies was not impressive"
Pros: "I like"
Cons: "Way to cramped. The people in front of me remained in the reclined position the entire time. This made it impossible for me to eat as their seat was too close to use my tray table. Also, the armrests did not go up fully to create more space in the seats so the long flight was cramped and uncomfortable as you could not spread out at all."
Cons: "I like Swiss airline"
Cons: "Arm rest doesn't go up all the way. Very difficult to get out when seats are reclined in front of you"

Cons: "I was next to an obese person who literally took half of my seat. That was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The check in and boarding process in Incheon was terrible! My flight ticket was printed and had the wrong name, which the agent at the check in desk did not catch. It was not until I went to the security line when they found a mismatched name. I was asked to go through security THREE TIMES. And then at the gate, I was supposedly "randomly selected" for ANOTHER swab/swipe security check. The flight itself was uncomfortable. There are not enough bathrooms for the number of people seated on the flight. The entertainment was the only excellent and recommendable thing about this delta flight."
Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."

Also, the entertainment system at my seat and my husbands wasn’t working well. One of the bathrooms had a cabinets Tvst oliiiooooiiooooioiooiiiooiio"
Pros: "great flight , on time, great service"

Cons: "Delayed 2.5 hrs. The next flight to Atl left and reached earlier"
Pros: "how short a flight it was!"
Cons: "nothing to complain about."
Cons: "I always hate to hear erroneous announcements. I don't need to know why I need to keep my seatbelt on; just to do it and MAYBE how long I'll need to do it. You don't need to alert me when you're turning the seat belt sign off. There's a "ding" and the light goes off. You could wake me up, or my wife or my sleeping child. It's like they like to hear themselves talk."
Pros: "Finally, we got to use a jet bridge in Guadalajara !"
Pros: "We were two for two on not being able to understand the gate agents announcements. Please keep in mind that not everyone flies frequently. I'm convinced that the routine of the job blinds both the TSA and airline employees to this fact. Clear and concise instructions would be great, regulars will continue to ignore you. So no harm, no foul."
Cons: "requirement to wait for seat assignment until at the gate"
Pros: "Timeliness of flight."
Cons: "I was told if I didn't show proof of a return flight to the US that they wouldn't let me board. I live in Mexico. None the less I had a return trip booked for a family event on another airline."
Pros: "I made it home."
Cons: "1. 1.5 hour delay on a 70-degree, sunny day. 2. all of the outlets in the gate area to charge devices during the delay -- and 90% of them didn't work!!!! It's almost better not to design new seating with outlets between seats, when the outlets don't work -- neither did the ones on the walls. People were lined up for the ONE wall outlet that did work."
Cons: "Undersized overhead bins so ALL carry-on rollerbags had to be checked."
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"

Pros: "The entertainment was wonderful the staff was nice."
Cons: "CONSTANT ANXIETY!! Our flight to Chicago was delayed. By 2 hours. This normally is not a big deal but it caused us to miss our connecting flight from Munich to Bremen. Then our new flight with a later time to Bremen was cancelled 20 minutes prior to boarding with no more flights to this area. The service center helped us redirect another flight to Hamburg, Germany. We had to fly to Vienna and then to Hamburg. We made it to Vienna after a 40 minute delay however, this delay caused us to miss our connecting flight once again. We were placed on an early flight the next morning to Hamburg which was an easy flight. When we got to luggage in Hamburg we noticed our luggage was missing. Supposably still in Munich. We then missed this flight and missed out on valuable time with friends who live in Germany."
Pros: "Excellent cabin service with full drinks bar, nice choice of meals and good entertainment choices"
Cons: "Entertainment system reluctant or slow to respond to commands"
Pros: "The seats were spacious. I loved the options for viewing, klistening, etc on the tablets attached to the seat in front of me. Great service from the flight attendants. Lots of food service & drinks. Thankful for sitting close to first class."
Cons: "I would have preferred an aisle seat. Difficult to get out of the rows without everyone having to get up."
Pros: "Great entertaining system"
Pros: "I am 6’3”. But I am also cheap. So I like being able to fit in an economy seat with more room than other airlines. Believe me, an inch or two makes all the difference."
Pros: "The flight from Chicago was only about 2/3 full and there was no one in the seat next to me so I had plenty of room to stretch out and get comfortable. The flight was super smooth...hardly any turbulence and crew worked hard to keep passengers refreshed."
Cons: "I sat next to the biggest jerk on the plane (something out of Lufthansa control so I don't hold that against them). Also the seats were not the most comfortable...even for an economy seat was pretty basic. Also the entertainment system was temperamental and some of the features (flight tracker) didn't work at all."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Amenities excellent. Food good. Entertainment system very good!"
Cons: "In business class the room for feet was too narrow. One of our seats had the metal framing in middle of my back bothersome."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, quite and smooth flight, lots of entertainment options."

Pros: "The Munich airport is awesome. My wait from my connection went smoothly and the complementary coffee was a plus!"

Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Lots of movies."
Pros: "Timely distribution of meals/drinks, uncommonly quick boarding and ... unboarding. I travel with a musical instrument and some airlines want to check it and some even insist on checking it, even though there is always plenty of room. This was a completely full flight and no one even mentioned the possibility of checking it; they put me in an early boarding line and put it in a closet. The way they handle this for myself and the other passenger with an instrument made our day, as well as making boarding smoother forbus and everyone else. Really excellent job on that!"
Cons: "Old televisions with somewhat limited entertainment options. Im tall and every seat in coach is too small for me, but thats the case on every flight ive been on."
Pros: "Pretty smooth flight"
Cons: "Entertainment options weren't great"
Cons: "From the boarding to the landing this crew could not have been more rude. Flashlights in the eye when trying to sleep, rude comments, rude attitude. They are clearly not here to make our flight easier."

Cons: "Wish the seats went back just a little more so you could stretch the legs."
Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "Attentive, friendly staff on flight. Choice of meals, good food and drink. Plenty of restrooms in economy. Good overheard and under seat storage. Information over the speaker system was shared in German, English, and sometimes French. Individual TV screen was nice. Good smooth flight. Boarding and deboarding were painless, even in economy."
Cons: "Economy seats a little too close together for a long flight. However, economy seating was comfortable. If possible, sharing information about where to locate customs in the arrival airport, would be a nice addition."
Cons: "Flight delayed and 6 hours of additional travel"
Cons: "I used to reserve seats without fees, but Lufthansa airlines requested a fee when I tried to reserve seats in advance."
Pros: "Luggage came pretty quickly."
Cons: "A female member of the cabin crew was rude to one of the passengers (either Latino or Middle Eastern), who was unable to fasten her children's seat belts and informed the crew shortly before the take off."
Cons: "that Lufthansa now doesn't leave food for, or wake up asleep passengers. they just pass you. My move touch up monitor doesn't work, but since plane wasn't full. I moved to next seat"
Pros: "I liked how generous they were with food and drinks"
Cons: "Free WiFi could have made the flight a lot better"
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"
Pros: "Decent price for economy comfort seat, 4A."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 80 minutes and they did not informed until when I got to the Airport. I could have stayed more at home instead of the terminal. They have also changed the boarding gate.."

Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."

Pros: "Flight crew very nice"
Cons: "Paid $70 for seat with more leg room and was the exit role to main entrance. No overhead space for carry on: broken food tray holder. People stepping on my feet. And gather in your space waiting for bathrooms. Window seat had no room for feet because of closed door"

Cons: "Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up"
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"

Pros: "Excellent very good"

Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."

Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Economy was very tight! Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Seating space is like putting 5 pounds of something g in a two pound bag. Not enough space."
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "Seat 2L Rocked back-and-forth every time person in seat 1L moved. This was a day flight from Chicago to London so I wasn’t sleeping. I could see if you were sleeping and had to deal with all the seat movement it would not be ideal."
Cons: "The landing"
Cons: "They switched planes last minute in Chicago that delayed us by 55 minute which led to us missing our connecting flight in London. That connecting flight,4 1/2 hours later, was delayed, twice! We had to rearrange everything waiing for us at our final destination. BTW there was no explanation nor bad weather to cause this problem."
Pros: "Loved the food that was served for my flight and the complementary beer."
Cons: "Well, the seats could have reclined more but this is the price you pay for air travel :)"
Cons: "Kept the lights on for too long serving dinner. Forgot to serve the middle section beverages during breakfast."
Cons: "It was not clear that I needed a different 6 letter code to checkin using the AA website. I finally got frustrated and called AA only to find out the code was different. The codes should have been the same or you should have referenced it on the website when I tried to check in"
Pros: "Nothing much but the crew made up for some of it."
Cons: "ORD and the roads approaching nothing short of a nightmare. Chicago should be embarrassed by the whole experience at ORD."
Pros: "Great customer service, good food, great in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Rerouting, connection delays and lost baggage."
Pros: "Crew was great once we were airborne."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and caused us to miss train to Florence and spend double the original price to purchase new tickets."
Cons: "Three + hour delay out of ORD, equipment problems. Even though she had a boarding pass, they would not allow wife to board. Some ticketing problem between AA and BA. Finally, they let her on. We were the last to board."
Pros: "What to like with AA?"
Cons: "Delayed by 2:38 hours at Chicago due to aircaft repair. Total layover 8:38 hours."
Pros: "Crew, food and boarding."
Cons: "Limited entertainment selection. Tight setting with minimal leg room."
Pros: "The plane departed and arrived as scheduled. Flight attendants weee courteous and responsive."
Cons: "I was cramped in Seat B."
Pros: "On an overnight long-haul the thing I hope for most is sleep. The crew rapidly started beverage service after takeoff. Dinner was cleared and lights turned down about 1.5 hours later, including three opportunities for beverages. Lights came back up only about an hour before landing. Despite that no one seemed rushed. Seconds were offered for coffee, passengers had time to use the restroom before de-planing. We likely had almost 4 hours of our approximately 7.5 hour itinerary to attempt sleep."
Cons: "Having said that, the seats are not made for my over 6 feet tall spouse and myself. More leg room isn't going to help a lot. There's too much room between our necks and heads and the headrest so we end up slumped over even if we recline the seats. Hoping to win the lottery so we can afford first class some day."
Cons: "More than 24 passengers on the flight from LAX to Chicago lost their connection to Venice After we landed in Chicago with 2 hours delays we all run to catch our flight to Venice and we got there 5 minutes after the flight was supposed to leave but was still there instead but we were denied access and send back to customer service"

Pros: "Regular updates from captain. I was very satisfied!"
Cons: "Little leg room."
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Fairly comfortable seats."
Cons: "Bit tight betweeen seats. Fortunately had three seats for two of us. Slight mechanical issue caused small delay that pilot tried to make up. Better food and amenities on Delta."
Cons: "I’m still hungry and incredibly tired. Nobody buys their main cabin extra product, so there’s many empty seats. Ripe for the families that don’t want to pay extra to sit together. Those families bring kids, screaming kids to a section filled with higher fare paying customers. The FA in my section had such big hips, that she knocked my shoulder EVERYTIME she walked by. Not only that, everytime she did the courtesy reach over to grab empty cups from the middle seat, she hit me with her trash bag. Woulda been fine had I been awake, but I was trying to sleep in between the bouts of screaming from the devil possessed kids."
Pros: "American Airlines Crew, friendly and personable"
Pros: "New plane, more headroom made the cabin feel more spacious! Friendly flight crew! Loads of entertainment options....free! USB ports in every seat!"
Cons: "Traveling in coach is never comfortable. Fan was difficult to direct, and air flow was not especially strong."
Pros: "Very nice plane. Nice, comfortable, uneventful flight."
Pros: "We finally got to Aberdeen"
Cons: "Departure times were changed, plane had mechanical problems flight delayed almost 4 hours, we missed our connection. The American Airline was closed. We called 3 times totaling over an hour to get a flight the next morning. We had to book and pay for our lodging & dinner (2 rooms for 6 people) A nightmare of a trip!!!"
Pros: "On flight crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Ease of entry."
Cons: "Personal space is very, very limited and food is terrible for an international flight."

Pros: "Things were all right on schedule and the plane was very updated and clean. I was thrilled with the movie selections and the food was better than average plane food."
Cons: "Bathrooms were in rough shape, would have liked to see those serviced in-flight so those of us using the space to do night-time routines like brushing our teeth and washing faces didn't have to deal with someone else's mess."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Things went as they should have got a 2 hour flight."
Cons: "The inside of the plane around the air vents definitely could use some cleaning."
Pros: "Nice crew Spacious plane"
Pros: "The food and movies"
Cons: "The lack of communication while waiting to board about why plane was delayed even though it was already there. Service was ok, nothing stood out nor was extremely bad."
Pros: "The empty sit next to me"
Cons: "The very basic food. Having to argue to get extra water to drink when I got seriously dehidrated The limited choice in movies"
Pros: "Direct flight Chicago to Paris."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating. Almost 2 hrs delay leaving Chicago forced us to miss train connection in Paris. Bad layover times to get back to the States, almost 9 hrs was the only choice available."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cold cabin"
Pros: "Boarding was more efficient than I expected. And the leg room was very good, but the seats were narrow. Narrow seats made it a bit uncomfortable for a long 13 hour flight. Crew was efficient and very friendly."
Cons: "The sandwiches were too cold - actually had ice cycles. Narrow seatingwas constricting and entertainment wasn't varied enough."
Pros: "We got to watch movies for free, and we got to eat twice as well."
Cons: "First, the original 90 minute layover became 8 hours with the old buy this scheduled ticket and 3 weeks later we will switch it to 7 hours. After a 8 hour red-eye, it was brutal. BA was an hour late taking off from London to Warsaw. The onboard experience was charge for everything. No sodas, water, nuts, etc. Oh and boarding, cmon. The gold, silver and special people go first. I think that was 5 people. The other 150 plus, you are on your own, go. You have your typical isle 5 person holding up the entire loading procedure, trying to get their oversized bag in the overhead, versus loading from the back. Wow."
Pros: "New Airbus Dreamliner is a nice plane."
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "There was no wifi and no screen on the seat. I could not see the screen for the movie. Airline was old and also it took 2 hours to get going because they had to check the engine."
Pros: "Food on time. Good Food. Good Entertainment like watching movies. Top priority for Diabetes or any other patients."
Cons: "Little guidelines for new comers especially while changing the flights."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Smooth flight."

Pros: "Very nice plane with a good entertainment system."
