Cons: "I fell sick and my doctor advised against flying. Tried calling Swiss Air and JustFly.com: 6 calls back and forth and 7 hours on hold, no help. Finally got advised on driving to the airport to make the flight change at the Swiss Air counter at O’Hare. The representative told me to bring a note from doctor to switch flights. I did the next day. The same representative looked me in the eye after advising the day before and said there’s nothing she could do. Why make an elderly sick person drive to the airport again if you know already you cannot help??Absolutely terrible experience, no help from the airline or travel agency. Total loss of the full price of the ticket."

Pros: "The boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Some of the crew members were rude and inconsiderate - if you see that someone is sleeping, you don’t stand at their seat and lean on it and shake it while you’re waiting to give the security demo before take off."
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Crew was rude to passengers. One passenger asked for extra bread and crew arrogantly commented , we dont give but ok take one."
Pros: "Coach seats were comfortable but if the person in front of you reclines, your video screen will be inches from your face and it becomes difficult to get out of your seat."
Cons: "Crew was not particularly friendly....almost downright rude at times"
Pros: "Some of the best airplane food I’ve had."
Cons: "Food is bad"
Pros: "crew are well trained"
Cons: "chicken dinner was not tasty at all"
Cons: "I had a carry-on sized bag which would have fit in the overhead compartment. I was told that it would not fit the Swiss Air compartment, thus was forced to check it at the gate. I expressed my concern that it would get lost (thus the reason I never opt to check bags) and was assured "They are very efficient in Zurich." When we arrived in Madrid, my bag was not at the carousel. I was told at Customer Service that it was on another flight, but that they could deliver it to my Airbnb between 4-7 pm. I had to wait there instead of enjoying my vacation to wait for my bag. The bag did not arrive until 10:30 pm. I did not have my clothes or belongings with me all day. Swiss Air in particular needs to update their overhead compartment regulations, as my bag definitely would have fit there, and could have avoided this entire situations."
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!"
Cons: "My special meal wasn’t available."
Cons: "The seats in coach plus and Bussines were terrible"
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."
Cons: "I paid to upgrade my seats and they were still tiny. I could not straighten my legs. The armrest also doesn’t go up all the way, so couples flying overnight together, beware!"
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: "Excellent Service. Excellent food."
Pros: "Flight is super short and was delayed Boarding is terrible - everyone jammed up and pushing in Just an average boarding"
Cons: "Plane was late Self checkin is not for everyone and good half of people did not know how to use the machine and it greatest delayed the process .. cattle is transported better !!!"
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: "Flight crew, food, and seatback entertainment system (with USB charging port) were all great."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and way to close. When the person in front of me leaned their seat back, I was forced to do the same. It was nearly impossible to eat. If you had a hint of claustrophobia, you would never make this entire trip without going nuts. I noticed that many of the middle seats were unoccupied, while my family and I were crammed into four seats side-by-side. If we had empty seats between us the flight would have been bearable."
Cons: "Not very much space for such a long flight."
Pros: "Great service and friendly staff! Also great food!"
Cons: "There's nothing I didn't like :)"
Pros: "nice chocolate."
Cons: "The tv screen for my seat was semi-broken, and the UI for it was poorly designed or just old. Lufthansa was much better."
Pros: "Most everything about the process."
Cons: "Person in front reclined chair fully and left virtually no room for sitting!"
Pros: "Not very much. At least the staff was friendly."
Cons: "It seems like they always sit me next to the bathrooms. If I'm paying that much for a flight, I don't really appreciate having hordes of people lined up for the bathroom, bumping me constantly. I also don't very much like the door constantly opening and closing, due to noise and the obvious smell. Furthermore, I sat next to a family with 2 screaming babies. Overall, 8 hours of agony. Not a good experience at all."
Pros: "On time and friendly service"
Cons: "Poor selection of films, cramped seats and mediocre dinner"
Cons: "Warm breakfast in coach would be appreciated, but i understand it is just coach."
Pros: "I like the space in business class and the staff were really nice"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable, they ran out of scotch (single malt) and I only had 1 drink"
Pros: "Food, staff, service"
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "Seat in front of you tilts back and gives you NO room. Horrible!!"
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"
Pros: "On time, efficient, good service, professional"
Pros: "Very prompt and courteus"
Cons: "Baggage missing for three days. Communication poor."
Pros: "Crew was great! Boarded quickly! Alot of movies to watch!"
Cons: "When getting our meals the flight attendants didn't ask anyone to move their seats back up so it was difficult to eat since there was no space."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The service and food was excellent. There is no question about dislike"
Cons: "Not. Lot of room for legs. Slection of movies very poor. Very old movies mostly"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, and also very skilled so that their service was unobtrusive, graceful, and helpful. They took great care to get people what they wanted, and I saw them fulfill a few special requests from the people around me politely and quickly. The entertainment selections were good. The variety of interesting musical selections allowed me to go the whole flight without running down the battery on any of my own musical devices. The seat space was comfortable, especially compared to domestic flights I've taken for the last 10 years. The enforcement of carry-on luggage rules meant the overhead compartments were sufficient for what was brought aboard and people weren't filling the foot-space with bags."
Pros: "Crew and flight service are excellent top notch. Also they are very friendly and helpful. Make flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Seats are too close together in coach, very cramped and uncomfortable if you are a tall or large person."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Couldn't control the airflow at your seat."
Pros: "Seats very confortabile"
Pros: "crew"
Cons: "seat size and comfort. Had metal nox take good part of my footroom. small aisle. Food lousy."

Cons: "Professionalism, outstanding service, no problems, no stress, no issues, flawless!!!!!"
Pros: "Our attendant was very nice with a great attitude."
Cons: "Luggage line in Zurich at airplane"
Pros: "Very good. Good entertainment options."
Pros: "Great flight all together."
Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "The selection of movies was not impressive"
Pros: "I like"
Cons: "Good"
Cons: "I like Swiss airline"
Cons: "Given we left at 7:15 am, I would’ve liked some food options instead of biscuits and peanuts"
Pros: "I had heard about limited food options during covid flights but everything was tasty and generous. I always appreciate it when my initial flight books my check-in to my final stop and gives me all my boarding passes at once and Delta did just that. They were also really good at communicating updates like changes to the gate."
Cons: "People should just be prepared to be asked more questions than usual. It can definitely make you feel nervous but just remember that the new covid restrictions are stressful for flight staff just as much as they are stressful for you. Be cooperative and honest and you shouldn't have any problems."
Pros: "Kosher snacks! Thank you. Screens and outlets at every seat. Safe, controlled Covid protocols including de-boarding. Excellent!"
Pros: "Delta flight took extra precaution to keep all passengers safe before during and after the flight. They communicate effectively during the flight. I will be flying Delta again and again."
Cons: "The trip was great"
Pros: "The crew very professional. My flight was on time."
Pros: "Super friendly and helpful with connections."
Cons: "The music on the plane was a bit much. Lol"
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew helped find a place for my violin. Even though I was early to the gate, they also helped me update my seat before the new flight crew arrived."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, seats really comfortable!"
Cons: "Headphones sold for $ 2. Headphones preferably free"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were traveling international in Twitter after contacting we were told we can carry one checked baggage but then we were not allowed and at gate they didn’t know the procedure and repeatedly checked our passport Poor customer service"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Gates switched 3 times and all bags had to be checked because of a small aging plane."
Pros: "Short lines"
Cons: "Seating arrangements"
Pros: "Comfortable plane due to few passengers"
Cons: "7 hour delay after flight postponed."
Cons: "I would ask that the gate does not share in detail reason for delay in seat assignment is related to getting a family sitting together when the basic rules should apply unilaterally."
Pros: "Got to my destination without any issues"
Cons: "Seats/seating area are too small, and I'm not a big person."
Pros: "No"
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 6 hours, the crew was rude and the “comfort +” seats had very little leg room ."
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Price"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was pleasant and looked like they enjoyed working in the air."
Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."
Cons: "No AC for an hour before takeoff - very uncomfortable. Audio for tv did not work."
Cons: "Seat assignment for me and my traveling companion was done at gate. We had to sit in 2 different rows."
Pros: "Helpful"
Cons: "More print media to read on"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Couldn’t hear/understand the pilot"
Pros: "Flight attendant in first class was amazing."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."
Pros: "There was a bit of a mixup in boarding the plane but otherwise the flight was good. There was no entertainment system on this short flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant & efficient. They only served snacks on this short flight but were very good at ensuring everyone had at least one or more beverages. The premium seats were very comfortable ."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant was not willing to go above and beyond as he stated he would. My husband asked for a coke and the flight attendant told him he could only get water."
Pros: "It was a smooth boarding, flight and exit out of the plane."
Pros: "On time departure/arrival despite weather in Atlanta. Always a fan of free messaging and choice of snacks."
Cons: "Delta needs to invest in their gate area at ORD. Understand it’s not a hub but it’s a key business/leisure destination. The MD-80s are ok for a short hop but over 1 hour unless you’re in Comfort+, it’s tight."
Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "From the begging they changed the flights for something totally different. It was a 14 hour trip. Awful"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They take them forever to find me another fly ,make miss my other fly, my work my time and my sleep"
Cons: "Entertainment app from Go Go didn’t Work."

Pros: "I needed to run real fast to the connection flight and gladly got there on time."
Pros: "The service was amazing , the staff was honestly friendly and nice"
Pros: "Great service, nice agent friendly"
Pros: "Very friendly and professional gate agent and flight attendant"
Cons: "I was unable to fly at all due to a spelling error on my ticket. The airline refused to alter the ticket. Worst experience of my life, ruined my Christmas"
Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."
Cons: "Layover"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"
Pros: "The movie I watched was pleasant, although I had trouble hearing it because of the situation described below."
Cons: "There was a family seated behind us with several crying, loud children. We were miserable. Even my headphones with a Mozart sonata cranked up to loud did little to mask the noise. Probably not Dela'a fault, but the crew did nothing to mitigate the problem."
Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."
Pros: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"
Cons: "I am a 5'3" 125# woman who, unfortunately, had a middle seat assignment. The passenger to my right, on the aisle, weighed approximately 375# and took up 1/3 of my seat. The arm was not able to go down comfortably, and when it did it was not usable . The passenger on my left, window seat, was probably 6'7" and had to sit with a man spread in order to fit. I could not move and was extremely uncomfortable. The plane was overbooked so I was unable to move. Therefore, worst flight ever. Plus, I paid for a full seat and was only able to occupy half of it."
Pros: "Nice food"
Pros: "I liked how generous they were with food and drinks"
Cons: "Free WiFi could have made the flight a lot better"
Pros: "Nice crew, good food."

Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my bagfage was lost"

Pros: "Crew was very engaging and service was good."

Pros: "Service is awesome. Food is great."
Cons: "People with short connection are affected by the 15 to 25 minutes delay."
Cons: "Flight on time would have been good when you have a late evening arrival. Long wait for luggage at Birmingham airport."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."
Pros: "Friendly staff"

Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The seats"
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: "The crew was great"
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Pros: "Even for this short flight, drinks and sandwich was provided staff were efficient and friendly"

I needed more seat room. Next time, preferred seating or business class.

So much delay !!! I purchase expensive ticket coz I did wanna wait at airports ( I have heart problem) I had to wait more ours each airport for delay

Did catch that fly

Questionable leg room for tall people in economy

Next time I will pay more to have a bigger seat! But very happy with this airline!

The crew was very friendly and attentive. Business class seats were comfortable and the food was good. Positive experience

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding process and food"
Cons: "The flight was delayed as we were waiting for documents required for our entry to the UK - surely these should have been ready in advance? Perhaps a taste of things to come if (when) we sadly leave the EU. Same poor sandwiches."
Pros: "Crew were amazing not stingy with the drinks. Boarding was easy and smooth"
Cons: "Would prefer flying with partner United though. Think they offered a better service on board"
Pros: "Comfort and space"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful very friendly"
Cons: "Room 9 hour flight and horrible seat. You guys should say before I buy how big seat are I could not even fit my underseat bag and be able to move , I would choose different way to purchase tickets next time to make sure I get any room to move hopefully sleep"
Pros: "Service and hospitality. On dot service with no major delays."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Legroom"
Cons: "Long delay in taking off. Terrible food."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole experience"
Pros: "The crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "My overall experience was good"
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: "Great entertaining system"
Pros: "Crew, equipment"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great staff, quick boarding and vegetarian options were avaliable. This was the most pleasant experience I've had with a flight service. I commend Lufthansa and the crew of this aircraft."
Cons: "Minimal entertainment but understandable for a short flight."
Pros: "The flight itself was on time, the food was basic, just like drink."
Cons: "Staff didn't ask a lady next to me to sit properly whilst she was almost laying with her shoes very near to my seat. I had to be careful not to clean her shoe soles with my clothes. Also, after arrival to Birmingham there was an unnecessary crowd created by releasing people from busses from 2 different flights simultanously."

Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rubbish boarding staff"
Pros: "It is comfortable. Some of the crew are very nice and friendly!"

Pros: "The crew were excellent and plane was comfortable"
Cons: "The plane was way out of the terminal and I had asked for assistance which I had going and most of coming back until the last part getting on to the plane at Lufthansa no-one came at Birmingham either. I struggled to collect my case and walk through to the exit."

Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "I liked how smoothly the boarding process was at O'Hare."
Cons: "I didn't like that with a window seat, my area for my feet was diminished by some metal box. Also the entertainment options were severely lacking for adults. Only thing to watch in English were highlights. I had to turn to Children's entertainment. Plus, my screen froze at one point after being hard to function. The flight overall was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight wasn't full. I was given a window seat with an empty seat next to it. I was able to move around and relax. There were lots of movies to choose from. The food was decent for a flight."
Pros: "No problems. As could be expected. Would do again."
Pros: "entertainment and food was good"
Cons: "My wifes luggage was lost, no followup at all from Lufthansa (main) or in Seville which was our destination. We had to call to find out any information. Once the bag was found and delivered to Seville, Lufthansa personnel again did not tell us nor would they deliver the bag to our hotel as the driver had already left. We then had to wait another day to have the bag delivered to Granada. Terrible customer service, the bag was missing for four days causing us to spend time shopping for clothes rather than experiencing the city."
Pros: "Short trip, but nice crew."
Pros: "Attention on the counter and at the boarding gate were excellent"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment system was broken, they changed me seats however that one wouldn't lean, after that went back to the original seat. In the second flight a baby was crying and they did nothing to remediate the situation for those that were around him. In the end I had a very bad flight"

Pros: "Comfortable seats,good movies,fast service"
Cons: "Everything was great nothing to don't like"
Pros: "Lots of space."
Cons: "The food was just okay."

Cons: "Chairs might have been more comfortable"
Pros: "Service wonderful Seating and cleanliness excellent"
Pros: "Great service. Smooth flight, take off and landing."

Pros: "service was great. can't complain."
Cons: "my first flight overseas. friendly staff. movies ..headphones..pillow and blankets included. 2 beverages included with meal. only downside was paying for checked bag. looks like that is included on the return flight so that won't be and issue on the way home. no issues with carryons."
Cons: "The back of the plane was significantly warmer than the rest of the plane. Very little leg room."
Pros: "Seating room, food, and service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Seats were snug, granted we had the less expensive tickets."
Cons: "More room. Not losing our luggage at the end."
Cons: "On the Copenhagen-Milan leg, since I was in the cheap seats, even water cost; $3 for a bottle of water. They couldn't even offer a cup of water for free? False economy. And I was told that I had to pay for my luggage at the airport, then it was $120 for 1 bag. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "On time travel. Check In Staff were kind and engaging."
Cons: "On flight staff were minimally attentive. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "service was great flight was on time luggage came on time"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment options were good."
Cons: "My seat was broken and when I alerted the attendant, in a rude tone, she replied “what do you want me to do?” Not exactly the friendliest experience. It was only compounded by the fact that when we were landing, another attendant insisted I put seat completely upright, and when I told her it had been broken the entire trip, she began forcefully shoving my seat. Not awesome."
Cons: "Food was pretty atrocious. Before having this flight I tried many times to book a special meal but their website is nearly impossible to use. So on the flight I was given two options of fish or mexican beef. Mexican beef meant slow cooked beef in a salty brown sauce with 2 kidney beans. Yes 2 kidney beans. With potatoes carrots and broccoli. Entertainment was pretty lacking. Not a lot of options. Also it was freezing the entire flight."
Cons: "Flight to Stockholm was cancelled. SAS Provided no informaton on the steps for re-scheduling my flight. I had to call the SAS headquarters in Stockholm before receiving any guidance on what to do next. All service attendants ditched the ticketing desk leaving one poor employee to answer questions for over 70 disgruntled passengers. Very very very poor communication. Luckily I was finally able to book a flight using another airline after waiting on hold for 20 minutes with the regional customer service provider."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Audio quality not great"
Pros: "People were very kind. The food was terrific!"
Cons: "The entertainment system was slow."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cramped in a tiny seat behind someone well over 6’5 who kept slamming his seat back to get more room. We were later diverted for a person on the flight who had health issues all the way back to Canada when we were practically over Ireland. We flew back I believe an hour and a half back only to not have proper fuel equipment which took fueling forever and caused our crew to go past their duty day which made use get diverted again to Iceland for a new crew and even more gas. We were held on the plane for a total of 8 additional hours! We were never allowed to get off the plane, we were given very minimal food and drink the additional 8 hours, and when my girlfriend asked what was going on your information person in Copenhagen said they had no idea what was going on with my Flight and had no idea where it was."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was a bit old, inflight entertainment limited, temperature on aircraft fluctuated a bit. We were also an hour delayed in take off with no communication."
Pros: "Very comfortable and smooth flight, on board entertainment on first leg of trip was great. Food was fresh and good. Nice coffee & Tea service,"
Cons: "Boarding was a little scattered, but ok"
Pros: "One crew member was particularly nice and personable."
Cons: "We waited an hour in the plane before take-off and after boarding, during which time the crew deliberately filled the cabin icecold air thick with the highly toxic fumes from the deicing. I got a headache from it. Throughout the process the entertainment units were disabled, when they could have helped distract passengers from this ordeal. The food was disgusting. When the Danish government has repatedly bailed out SAS, it would make a lot more sense for everyone involved to have higher quality Danish products on board for the meals, especially for such things as dairy products."
Pros: "All went well !! On time friendly staff ."
Pros: "The food and service were great!"
Cons: "flight was canceled and I have not heard back from SAS"
Pros: "Everything. Nothing ever goes wrong when I fly SAS which is why I seldom don't. And if something does go wrong their manners and spirits are high and they make sure everyone is still happy and comfortable. Best service in the airline industry."
Cons: "I like everything."
Pros: "food was delicious and I liked that they give everyone a full bottle of water at the start of the flight; plane was new and updated"
Cons: "Boarding was awkward and just a giant mass of people funneling in; tv show options only had 1-3 episodes and not entire seasons"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and on the cross continent part of our flight we had dinner and breakfast served. Lots of leg room."
Pros: "Efficient and friendly staff. Coach seats did recline on that Airbus model, which was nice."
Cons: "Had to pay for wifi in coach for internet access. It was dropping routinely, dial-up slow, and very frustrating. The food was on par with other airlines, minus the vegetable turnover. That was a bit odd. What was shocking to me, is that no alcohol of any kind was complimentary in coach."
Pros: "I had read several horrible reviews after I booked my flight but I was pleasantly surprised. The check in and boarding were smooth and had no issues. The seats, though not overly large, we're comfortable and not tight. The food was good and service was fast and efficient. Overall a good experience."
Pros: "I loved that there were a lot of different movies, TV shows, games, music, and more to choose from- all for free! Then there was a dinner- not bad at all-, a snack later on, and breakfast too, all included. Headphones if you needed them ( lifesaver there as I had temporary misplaced mine), a blanket, and a pillow. The crew was really polite, and there was never more than one person in line for the bathroom."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and the onboard crew were very nice."
Cons: "Since the flight was delayed taking off, the layover in Stockholm was very short. The airline did nothing to rush those of us through or contact our connecting SAS flights, and a few of us missed our connections by just a few minutes because of it. SAS did provide alternate tickets for me, but I arrived at my destination several hours late and the whole situation could have been avoided pretty easily."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled causing a domino effect of plans. I spent the evening and morning canceling and trying to reschedule plans. Your airline rebooked me for a flight the next day that ended up having air filter problems. I lost 3 days of vacation from the 10 total I get a year and from the 8 I had taken for my vacation."
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "My selected seat was broken and I was moved to a seat directly on the side of the toilet. Not nice!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and professional."
Cons: "Only offered coffee and tea during meals."
Cons: "Water and beer paying"
Pros: "This was my first flight in SAS and it was a wonderful experience. The crew was pleasant and the seating was spacious and the plane was clean. Very refreshing atmosphere."
Pros: "I got to my destination all in one piece which is what really matters most."
Cons: "The crew was completely rude. They banged my knee with the food cart and didn't even apologize. The seats are so tight and the people in front of me had their seat in the reclining position the entire flight."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing to mention"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, the staff was friendly, the plane was clean."
Cons: "I was really cramped in my seat and was unimpressed with the food."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly crew. Would fly again!"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Cons: "I did not like my flight because ... I could not take it! I needed to change only one date (return) and was quoted $1300 for that one change. Getting a completely new ticket was cheaper, but not cheap. With such cost of even minor changes, next time I will look into booking directly with airlines, instead of Kayak; sorry to say that, as I really liked using your service."
Pros: "Everything worked well."
Cons: "Movie selection could be lager."
Pros: "Excellent meal and very friendly staff."
Cons: "The cabin temperature seemed pretty warm."
Cons: "Not enough room to work on laptop."
Pros: "Flights were on time. Crew was great."
Pros: "Wonderful service! Flight attendants kind and thoughtful. Once in terminal 5 (from terminal 1) a Sas gate agent escorted us to flight since our previous United flight was so late"
Cons: "Miserable cramped seating ."
Pros: "Overall, the flight was good. As always, I like SAS's service. Crew are friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "When waiting to board the flight, it was difficult to understand when different parts of the plane were boarding because of the soft volume of the loud speakers. All people could really hear was "boarding now", which created a bit of a rush of everyone. It would be helpful if there were an SAS representative to stand next to the line, to physically say to people, 'Okay, we are now only doing priority boarding. If you are priority boarding, please stand her. After that, if you are business class, please stand here. Everyone else, please wait, but know that we will start to board from the back of the plane. Thank you." This will to help guide people BEFORE the ticket check."
Cons: "Charging for second beverage. Losing our bag and not getting it to us for the duration of our travels, despite repeated promises to do so."
Pros: "The Plus Seating was really good"
Pros: "The food was excellent on this flight. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Entertainment was hard to hear with the ear buds provided. Wait time in security at Chicago was terrible. It took nearly an hour to get through security."
Pros: "Lucky is the passenger to get onboard a new SAS plane! Cleanliness aside. The built in phone chargers to the tele is genius. Nice to land fully charged!"
Cons: "I didn't like that they interrupted programming to announce they were walking on board shopping through the cabins. They did this twice! Really unnecessary!"
Pros: "I slept for most of the flight, and had space to lie down. I skipped the dinner, and the stewardesses did not wake me up at all, inspite of their serving most people on board. When I woke up close to landing, I asked for a cup of coffee, which the stewardesses made for me promptly. The flight was smooth, and the good night's rest was refreshing."
Pros: "Clean airplane, good food and good customer service from check in to landing."
