Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was so friendly"
Cons: "Everything is so smooth in my flight!"
Pros: "The food was great and the other flight attendants were kind and understanding."
Cons: "There was a flight attendant who was of an older demographic who was extremely rude to me and not accommodating at all to myself, my husband, or my children. She had an attitude and seemed irritated by my questions, concerns, and overall being there. We had an issue with seating and no seats together with our 4 and 7 year old."
Pros: "Crew was great, food was great, timing was great! (Got to LAX about 45min prior to scheduled arrival), however seats are very narrow!! Good enough for a short (2-5 hour) flight but definitely not for a transatlantic one!"
Cons: "Everything great but the seats..don’t expect too much of a leg room in the 777 Boeing...unless you get the exit row in economy or you book a business class!"
Pros: "The seat was much better than other airlines' economy seats. Great food and lots of it. Excellent attendants. Zurich is the best planned airport for changing to next flight. I'm going to try to use Swiss as often as I can."
Cons: "Free Wifi."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attentive"
Cons: "Leg room on my first flight (longest leg of the trip) was not much and when the person in front of me leaned their chair back, my knees were touching the chair."
Pros: "Service was fine, on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "* Online checkin failed * Sit selection was not honoured * Sit was uncomfortable * Was last to receive luggage after landing, even though they had a "business - priority" sticker on them"
Pros: "Swiss quality, punctuality and reliability."
Cons: "No negatives."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Boston -Zurich, the most uncomfortable seat possible. I am 5’2 and I barely fit.... Seats are way more comfortable on European flights."

Cons: "Flight delayed by a few minutes."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, more or less."

Pros: "Good food for economy , good selection of new releases movies included , small seat and leg room but not terrible"
Cons: "Made us check our carry on bag because it was too heavy and was told to get it from baggage claim on our connecting flight for it to never show up then waited in line for missing luggage for them to tell us they transferred it and would be waiting at the final destination"
Pros: "Great service & lots of room to sleep"
Cons: "Roughest flight ever, many people got sick, too much turbulence to fly"
Pros: "The flight ,food entertainment was very good. But I don't understand the SWISS airline logic. When I did the check in in Prague and got my boarding pass the told me that the system picked me to have the additional random checkup at Zurich airport. Its ok. If it’s done for security reason why to tell the people ahead of time that they will have additional checkup of bags and personal stuff. If you want to do it for security reason do it ( I want to be safe) but don’t do it for the check mark , it doesn’t make any sense and doesn’t protect us."
Pros: "Easy check in. Crew efficient and personal attention."
Pros: "Swiss Air is very nice, planes are clean, snacks on board were fantastic!"
Cons: "Why the ridiculous amount of money to check a small bag? For this reason, I would not fly Swiss Air. My fancy sandwich was not worth CHF 50."
Pros: "Super service, nice crew. On time and flawless baggage transfer to my final destination. Could not be more pleasant experience. I would recommend travel with Swiss to all travelers. Thank you"
Pros: "I really liked the "About my flight" application on the viewing screens because it always gave me an idea of what we were flying over and how much longer we woulld be in the air. The food was excellent and I was pleasantly surprised that I could have wine with dinner or any time the attendants offered beveragess. The attendants were always professional and helpful. They all were fluent in English as well as several other languages. It was a nice touch when the attendant wore white gloves when he or she was collecting passengers' trash after meals and/or beverage service. I loved the cheese that was served at dinner. The warm croissants served at breakfast were a very nice touch."
Cons: "Due to turbulence, I could not get out of my seat as much on the return flight, so I did have some swelling in my feet."
Cons: "Seats too small."
Pros: "Got bumped to business class."
Cons: "What's not to like about that?"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "My wife is strictly Hindu vegetarian. We had entered her food choice at Swiss web site months before. She didn't get the food while going to Zurich and coming back to Boston. She remained hungry both ways. Although we were in business class while coming."
Pros: "Everything!! This airline is a huge breath of fresh (old?) air. It reminded me of how air travel used to be. No baggage charge - we only checked one bag. There was plenty of great food and drink - alcoholic drinks were free. We will definitely look to use SwissAir whenever possible."
Pros: "We had two flights with Swiss and the first one left half an hour late, meaning we only had about 10 minutes to connect to the next one. Instead of sprinting through the airport, a man was waiting for us immediately outside the plane. He got our luggage right from the cargo, drove us to another man who stamped our passports, and then drove us to the plan just in time for takeoff. It was incredible service and everyone was super friendly. We so appreciated them making sure we caught our connecting flight!"
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "No USB. Entertainment was so-so."
Pros: "Crew was nice and I loved the TVs keeping us up to date on the flight and our connection. We were even early boarding."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Cons: "You charge the ticket and my reservation wasn't there!!"
Cons: "Both flights were excellent. At Zurich airport is were I was disappointed in some staff at the gate. Two employees were rude towards me but the flight home & the staff made up for it for being very friendly & helpful. Over all would fly Swiss air again"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the chocolates were nice. Food was mediocre and I'm not sure I'd take Swiss again."
Cons: "Seat pitch was too small and the food didn't taste that great. I was lucky enough to get a whole row to myself but on the way back I did not and there is not a lot of room at all. And for an 11 hour flight it was really uncomfortable!"
Cons: "Flight attendant spilled hot tea on me and he didn't help me out. The other flight atttendant assisted to my burns. I have 2ond degree burns on my arm from this incident."
Pros: "Best flight in years. Attentive crew, very good food and wine, on time. Strongly recommended."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, everything was on time and extremely efficient. I don't have kids but I did notice how great the flight attendants were with the kids around me. Great job! Already recommended SWISS to friends and family"

Pros: "Seats were too small. Sound and controls for movie were bad."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment options, and pretty Good food!"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "The food and staff were very good."
Cons: "You should board the plane from the back so people aren't climbing over each other. Paying to pick a seat is a huge turnoff. Economy very cramped. Lufthansa was better on that."
Pros: "The food was really good. The selection of TV shows and movies were nice, and kept me entertained the whole flight."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. The same questions were asked 3 times, I couldn't tell if that was security protocol or just glitch in their process. Seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "seat size and comfort. Had metal nox take good part of my footroom. small aisle. Food lousy."
Pros: "Great crew on this UA flight. Watched three recent (last Fall) movies)"

Cons: "We left a little late."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Was put in German Airport jail"

Cons: "Leg room was terrible in economy and food was poor from the USA"
Cons: "We had a three hour departure delay in Munich"

Pros: "See my earlier remarks"

Cons: "She would not listen to me. I had to come out, unfinished, embarrassed and couldn't even wash my hands before going back to my seat. Other than that, every other experience was excellent. Please lecture your crews about constipation and to listen. Thanks."
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian options so I only could have salad, bread and butter"
Cons: "When purchasing tickets on KAYAK be very careful to notice you often ARE NOT buying the ticket from the airline and any issues you have will be with the reseller and not the airline. KAYAK should be more clear about who the seller is and you should ABSOLUTELY stay away from resellers unless you like to gamble."
Cons: "Delayed boarding for no apparent reason. The plane was sitting on the tarmac for at least 2 hours before scheduled boarding."
Cons: "Quite satisfiedoverall"
Pros: "The Staff"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "You can't beat the German's at efficiency. Awesome!"

Pros: "The overall experience was great."
Pros: "Lufthansa kept to the time schedule"
Cons: "At Frankfurt, the boarding gate was changed two times."
Pros: "staff at airport were friendly, helpful"
Cons: "telephone reps NOT helpful and do not know the airplane seat maps"
Cons: "They change the gate for transfer last minute"
Cons: "Delays in Nice led to a narrow window for connection. More than ten people were left behind - doors practically closed in our faces - and Lufthansa was wholly unhelpful in rescheduling flights. Lines to speak with agents were absurd and then attendants had to take breaks instead of resolve issues. There were no solutions offered, only poor communication and an unwillingness to accommodate a significant number of customers who were inconvenienced. Finally, a "random inspection" led to a handful of passengers being surveyed by the German local police. Interestingly, a number of us were Hispanic Americans. The whole experience was extremely negative."
Pros: "Excellent connection arrangements in Munich. Departing gate just steps away from the arriving one!!! German punctuality as well."
Cons: "Too little space between consecutive rows on the plane."
Cons: "It was my bad luck to be near two children whose parents would not keep them quiet and who played games on their screen for nine hours straight, shrieking the entire time. Nor did any of the stewards help or say boo to the parents."
Pros: "Lunch was good."
Cons: "I have not even had this trip because the Lufthansa denied my boarding and canceled and rest of the trip"
Pros: "Lufthan changed aircraft and totally screwed by seat assignment, very bad."
Pros: "Everyone is very very nice!"
Pros: "Quick straight forward"
Cons: "No entertainment at all"
Cons: "Luftansa gives up and goes out of business."
Pros: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, I needed assistance with boarding. I attempted to ask the check in agent at the boarding gate and she was extremely rude to me as well as other passengers. The assistant's behavior displayed annoyance and an unwillingness to assist passengers."
Cons: "It took over three hours for them to unload our baggage. Completely unacceptable. Terrible coordination and planning with the Dulles baggage handlers."
Pros: "Why am I getting this email. I am not this person taking this trip..I'm frustrated with this ...I talked to the the airline already numerous times and still I am getting emails from Lufthansa and kayak."
Cons: "crowded plane unfrindly staff no choice of meals long wait on board"
Cons: "Very tight connection and a long distance between gates. Advising customers of this in advance would be helpful."
Pros: "The attendant showed concern and promised to report, great attitude"
Cons: "I was surprised that my meal request was not passed to the airlines"
Pros: "Watching movies. The plane model seems to be a bit larger. First time when I saw stairs to the second floor. It felt more spacious. I really enjoyed that."
Cons: "Nothing to complain. Thank you for providing great experience :)"
Cons: "Second baggage charges"
Cons: "Wish I had more time to shop Duty Free/Munich."
Cons: "Waited for 5 hours, and then rerouted to Houston"
Pros: "Lufthansa is a superior airline with friendly, helpful staff. It is always enjoyable to fly with them!"
Pros: "Flight was operated by United Airlines. Easy boarding, friendly crew. Pillows, blankets, and headphones provided plus free house wine and beer as well as the usual coffee, tea, soda. Seatback video did not work for me, but I had no plans to use it as I needed to sleep on the flight. Excellent vegetarian dinner of vegetable korma, chickpeas and rice. Heated snack was not meatless, though, so as a Catholic flying on Friday had to pass."
Cons: "Vegetarian option (or meatless Friday option) for snacks as well as meals would be nice. They are in the process of changing to personal device entertainment, so seatback screen issue will not be a problem in the future."
Pros: "Staff/stewards were very upbeat and pleasant, professional and were perfect at looking after very tired customers (at least for me)."
Pros: "Upgraded to business!"
Cons: "Ran out of choice on menue. The shrimp!"
Pros: "The raw was empty and I could sleep whole 10 hours"
Cons: "Choice of movies and TV programs"
Pros: "Overall Austrian was fine. Smaller plane and people were professional."
Cons: "Certainly don’t expect the luxury of SE Asian or Middle Eastern airlines"
Pros: "Food was quite good, and they were great about continually offering beverages throughout the flight."
Pros: "The crew was good , funy , atentifly and kind."
Cons: "Was ok."
Pros: "The flight attendants were quite personable and engaged."
Pros: "I was able to get good seats, front of the plane. 3rd row for all my flights. pretty decent leg room"
Cons: "flight was delayed, 2nd Austtian flight delayed in the same day"
Pros: "Friendly crew with a wide range of entertainment options"
Cons: "Smoother boarding. Was great once on board."
Pros: "Nothing. See below."
Cons: "Original flight cancelled so rebooked ojba floght five hours later - then with one hour to go until that second flight, that was cancelled as well. Totally unhelpful ground staff, who were oblivious to the fact that I had a work commitment the next day so couldn’t overnight in some random hotel at an airport to suit Austrian’s policies. Eventually routed via Lisbon which meant literally flying all night to arrive at 0600. Lufthansa and Austrian have some serious faults to correct."
Cons: "You sold wrong tickets to customers. I booked economy tickets but I got Econony lite ticket. Had to pay extra charges. You shouldn’t make money to sell lower class tickets as regular."
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Pros: "The attendants on Austrian air are all very nice and helpful. You can make any request of them or ask any question and they are happy to help. Great customer service. Arrived on time. Also, very good entertainment options!"
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable on Austrian air. The only way I would fly them again would be if I had extra money for the exit rows with more leg room. Food isn't great, but no airline food is really great. Boarding was significantly delayed from what it said on the boarding pass, with no updates. But we arrived on time. Getting luggage after flight at Dulles took a really long time, but I think that is more of an airport issue as getting my luggage from another Austrian airlines flight to another airport was a breeze."
Pros: "Luggage came extremely quickly"
Cons: "We upgraded to business and paid way more than the flight over and the service was much worse. Food wasn’t as good and not nearly as much."
Cons: "Paid 1,000$ and we got a standby ticket. How is this possible? Will not book through Kayak again."
Pros: "Crew was nice and very accommodating. Food service timing was good. Restrooms serviced every one efficiently. Electronic service outlets are quite helpful and thoughtful."
Cons: "Only at boarding we were notified to be TSA screened, we ended up the last passengers to board and caused flight delay... Electronic check in did not provide food selection, specially for individuals who suffer some food allergies... Boarding process to be revised taking in consideration last minute matters to be better coordinated."
Cons: "See red comment above."
Pros: "The cabin and gate crew provided a very friendly atmosphere. At the gate, the staff were very efficient in getting passengers on board despite the 20-30 minute delay. During the flight, attendants did a good job making sure meals were on time and drinks were offered often."
Cons: "Since the plane clearly came from another destination, the cleaning crew at Vienna International Airport could have taken some more time to vacuum the floor and wipe down the surfaces in the passenger cabin of the aircraft."
Pros: "The personal service, the meals and the accommodations - wonderful!"
Cons: "Long delay."
Pros: "Short flight and got a snack"
Cons: "Boarding was a hassle"
Pros: "Love the 767 seating layout with 2-3-2 seating. My hubby and I got 2 by the window/aisle. I like having 2 aisles for walking around. Pasta meal was much more tasty than the chicken meal."
Cons: "No free wi-fi. But, that wasn't a big deal. Just seemed unusual. If they did have it, they didn't let you know about it."
Pros: "clean airplane. staff friendly and helpful. good movie selection"
Cons: "austrian and lufthansa have the worst seats in the industry. good for seating for about 30 minutes ONLY. so tough that make the trip feel even longer. a charger is needed in economy (at least one every two seats). wifi has not made it to this long haul flight yet."
Pros: "Safety, timeliness, friendliness of staff"
Cons: "Entertainment is outdated"
Pros: "Everything was at the good level. Professional people to work with."
Cons: "Not enough room for overhead bags. Had to put mine in the front of the plane while I sat at the back of the plane. What I really didn't like is that I called Kayak to include my Global Entry number on my boarding pass. They said it would be there and when I printed it, it wasn't. So coming back into the states and thru customs took waaay longer than it should have with those chaotic and ridiculously long lines. I didn't bring my Global Pass card with me and will from now on!"
Pros: "The economy seats had as much leg room as the Premium Economy seats on Luthansa, so the comfort over a long flight was better than I expected."
Cons: "The charge for checking a 2nd bag was $100 which I thought was much too high. Food was average and not enough given that we were on the plane for over 10 hours."
Pros: "The air crew service"
Cons: "1. No option to pay for a second luggage; the company website very unclear about the luggage policy; no contact information as well as no web payment service; days before my flight, spent a lot of time and efforts to know that I could pay for a second luggage at the airport on my departure; 2. Paid $120 or so for the second luggage!!!??? After decades flying Austrian I will try switching to your competitors."
Pros: "After flight to Vienna was cancelled, we were put on a flight to Frankfurt instead."
Cons: "Kayak sent me an email at 5:16am for an 8:15 am flight titled, "Austrian Airlines flight #704 from PRG on time". It was in fact cancelled. Unfortunately we missed the connection for the flight to Newark, which we were expressly told would be held for us... they shut the door 30 seconds before we arrived, with the plane still at the gate. Had to then go to the only counter in the terminal to see if we could get on standby. Finally got on a flight to JFK instead at 5:15pm."
Cons: "When our plane arrived late, many on board had missed connections. We received no help/guidance at gate, other than to be told to go up one floor. One floor up we had to go thru security to reach customer service. 100 people lined up for customer service from 3 Austrian airline reps. After 2 hours of standing, there were still 27 people ahead of me. The woman behind me gave me the local phone number for Austrian airlines and I was able to get on a flight to US leaving in 30 minutes. I managed to make it, and would not have had I waited another hour in line. Why no surge of staff to help? All 3 help numbers on my Lufthansa e-mail receipt could not help. Horrible experience."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for 2 hours because a crew member did not have the proper paperwork. This is incompetence. The trip was long enough w/o adding another two hours due to poor planning. This was completely preventable."
Pros: "The pilots are very skilled and keeps you informed about every single “bump” during the flight. Flight attendents are very nice, pleasant, polite and helpful."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "the stewardess gave me coffee even if she already passed by me (because I was sleeping) I appreciated that :)"
Cons: "I have the 'Economy Class' on the tickets. At check-in at the airport we wrote "economy light" on the boarding pass and want to pay for the first baggage. I check it on the original receipt I received by e-mail, there is ECONOMY CLASS and 1st baggage free of charge, another for a fee. So I do not understand and for two tickets I have paid 2 x 30 €."
Pros: "Service was great and the flight on time."
Cons: "5 hour delay. One staff member said there would be a delay, the second said there was no delay and after a couple hours the delay was confirmed. I was told the flight was full without the attendant even checking, flight was actually not even close to full. Nobody wanted to help and do their job, they just want to send you on your way."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled. Waited over two hours to be rebooked. Nothing was offer. Special meals was not available for a flight that is over 9 hours. No other food was available."
Pros: "The B-767 is far superior to the B-777 in comfort; it is not so horribly crowded."
Cons: "Austrian check-in at VIE was a disaster. None of the machines could read my passport; and when you entered the data by alternative methods it STILL required a machine to read the passport--which it exactly what they were unable to do. Thus, it was a circular Catch 22. I went through six different lady agents working my way through the system, until they finally took my bag and let me go. They themselves said it was new to them and they did not fully grasp how it worked and they did not know why it did not accept me. SOFTWARE PEOPLE BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD."
Cons: "Not a lot of legroom and they should have provided an additional snack during the flight. Did not like that in order to select a seat prior to the check in period I had to pay for the selection."
Pros: "Staff are pleasant and competent."
Pros: "It was pleasant all around"
Pros: "friendly, helpful crew"
Cons: "I paid a premium to book a direct flight (ages ago) and then had to rerouted last minute (same day) with no reason given other than "it's our fault". I inquired about paying to change destination city and or seat to a premium seat (for the 9+ hour flight) when I recvd the reservations for the new flights that were made at the airport around 8am for flights that left at around noon and 3pm. I was told no better seat(s) was available. However, a half hour before the flight was boarded several announcements were made regarding all the upgrades that were available. Liars annoy me."
Cons: "While boarding, the AC was off due to a mechanical issue. The plane was uncomfortably hot, but the pilot and flight attendants were appropriately apologetic. The issue was resolved once we took off."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful ,except for the poor food."
Cons: "The flight was 9 and half hours and the food was very poor, I was starving ,maybe AA can improve that, it would be nice if they could add a little bit of fruit and a yogurt for a good digestion .Also, the sandwich they gave us at the end was so small ,maybe they can give us a real sandwich instead ..Sorry AA ,but you need to work on that .For the price I paid I can fly United ,they don't let me starve."
Cons: "The flight attentands were very unfriendly"
Cons: "We were stuck on the ground at London for what seems like ages."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants had an attitude problem, which put a wrench in my otherwise pleasant flight."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew were very friendly."
Pros: "Not at all a comfortable experience, but I suppose it served its purpose."
Cons: "Seats in economy class are way too crowded, plane was too warm and air was stale (and had an odd odor). Choices of dinner selections ran out quickly, and serving any type of curry (the only option left) on an 8 hour flight is a very questionable choice.... Staff gave some people the full can of drinks, while others only a half glass. Also, even though there was not much turbulence throughout the flight, the plane was still VERY shaky for the majority of the time in the air. Not very comforting for those who are not frequent flyers. In the future, I plan to stick with British Airlines."
Pros: "We liked that the boarding process seemed to have been streamlined and organized from other flights (this was a UNITED flight which we flew through Austrian Airlines). It was efficiently done. We thought the selection of movies to watch were terrific. So glad to have caught up on several I had wanted to see. Considering we had a 3 hour delay, I got to catch up on ALL the movies I wanted to watch!"
Cons: "The plane was delayed just over 3 hours by a mechanical problem with the radar. We taxied to a remote gate while they tried to fix it. Original estimates were an hour, but it ended up being 3 hours. We stayed onboard which was probably best in this case - but having been trapped by United on a flight many years ago from 4 pm until midnight with 3 small children and then told to come back at 7 am the next day - I am very wary of the airline now and actually drive from Washington to Chicago as we could have done that in the time they trapped us! This flight was practically empty however, so unlike many transatlantic flights, we could spread out and were more comfortable than usual. So that was lucky for United otherwise my scores might have been a LOT worse! Also, we hadn't eaten, figuring that we would eat dinner on the flight. So after 3 hours we were a bit peckish! The crew came around with a cookie and water. Really think that might have been a little more especially considering the flight had so few passengers. So we arrived back in DC just about 10 pm and, after clearing customs and getting bags, were home to Arlington about midnight - 5 am our time! Given the conditions and circumstances, the crew did a good job. I would like to think that Austrian Airlines would have some input with United. The outbound daytime flight from Washington to London had been simply terrific with a wonderful crew - new to the route I think. They gave as pointers as to what we were seeing out the window, which we always appreciate. Just as my daughter wondered what we were seeing out the window, the captain would tell us. So in short, the outbound flight was in a different league to the return flight. But that's down to United and not Austrian Airlines. And these things happen and I'm glad we didn't have to change planes or make other plans."
Pros: "The flight, service, entertainment and food were excellent"
Cons: "The boarding process was disorganized, could not tell which line to get in, waited in lines that we did not need to."
Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"
Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Ran out of business class meal. Substituted a Econ class."
Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."
Cons: "Fix the damn KIOSKS at Vienna!"
Pros: "Crew great, boarding at Nice very organised, boarding in Amsterdam not so organised!"
Cons: "A queuing system would be better-it was a bit disorganised at Amsterdam!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and on time with no problems."
Pros: "Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile"
Cons: "More snacks in between meals,"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. They adjusted the seating arrangements so there was an empty seat in every row to give passengers more space. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. They served delicious meals, snacks, and water. They provided headphones, blankets and pillows. They took very good care of us."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Pros: "Overall KLM experience is good"
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."
Pros: "well mannered and attentive crew - good supply of complimentary food/drink - good over all comfort"
Cons: "boarding was running very far behind - considering this is mainly a hub operations carrier - resulted in several passengers missing their connecting flights -"
Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."
Pros: "The flight arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and in poor repair. The seats were extremely close together. The inflight entertainment system, wifi and passenger electric outlets were all non-functional. Even the wastebin in the lavatory was full and an extra bag was put on the floor."
Pros: "The crew were amazing and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Keep up the good work"
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Pros: "Everything is alright"
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Pros: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, landing at vce took an additional 10 minutes due to no one at the jet way. Luggage service was very slow"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Very slow service at checkin, was not even available when I arrived at the airport"
Pros: "The attention and service!! Excellent. It was my birthday and KLM the head purser surprised me with 2 bottles of bubbles and a handwritten birthday card KlM and the crew of this flight thank you very much !"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."
Cons: "KLM staff in the Prague airport were some of the rudest humans I have ever met. So incredibly uncaring and outright mean."
Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."
Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff were lovely. Online check was very simple and easy to navigate."
Cons: "The amount of extras you have to click no to while checking in online."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Pros: "Staff both at the airport and in the plane were professional and welcoming. Depsite short distance sandwich and drink were offered."
Cons: "Nothing to be honest . All positive."
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."
Pros: "Economy Plus is great (I’m 6’10”) & had plenty of legroom! Good food, great service, nice entertainment package and got to stay in SAS lounge until boarding!"
Cons: "They need to serve drinks with ice! US passengers need ice in their drinks!"
Cons: "They contracted with United from Washington LA and United is a mess Btoke our luggage, wouldn’t honor seat selection we paid additional for, uncomfortable, ..."
Pros: "Very professional crew"
Cons: "One more pass at the end of flight to pick up more trash, to create less work for cleaning crew."
Pros: "New, clean airplane with a friendly and professional crew. It was not as uncomfortable as some of the other airlines I've used, though eight hours in economy is still too much. I chose it in part because of the connection through Copenhagen, which I recommend for an overnight stay. Great city."
Cons: "The chicken something or other on one of the flights was truly disgusting, but the rest of the economy food service was okay."
Cons: ""sporty" landing in Washington :)"
Pros: "The crew were fine and the boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The TVs were really old - my husband’s broke and mine couldn’t actually play movies due to it not registering fingerprints. The pocket in front of me was also ripped open spilling those annoying in flights magazines and the airplane smelled like the lavatory which was 6 rows up... just broken down and not well maintained. It was only a 9.5 hour flight but I expected better from SAS."
Pros: "Thre movie selection was great The crew was great Some of the food (in each meal) was good"
Cons: "Parts of each meal were great, parts were gross $4 for a can of soda? Really???"
Pros: "Newer plane with comfortable seat for coach. I liked the two-four-two seating arrangement. The direct flight to my destination was a plus."
Cons: "Nothing was negative."
Pros: "I liked the food, the pillow and blanket, they give you enough or plenty food."
Cons: "Although there were many movies, I'd like to have more English entertainment ootions. It was a long 8 hour flight, I watched 4 movies, so options are very important."
Cons: "Thankfully flight was a bit late since many from the previous flight needed to connect to this flight."
Pros: "The movie and tv selection were fantastic. Crew was kind and helpful. Chairs were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "It was so cold on the plane with most people including grown men with blankets wrapped up to their neck! I understand the crew moves a lot so want it cold but maybe there’s a happy medium? The cold snack sandwich with cheese and spread of some sort was awful. The main meal was better but not as good as some others I’ve had."
Pros: "With tablets for the entertainment system – – a ton of good movies to choose from. So much so that we stayed up hours after we planned to, watching movies"
Cons: "Seats were a little crowded together, but that’s to be expected in modern passenger flight"
Pros: "Great movies."
Cons: "Special menus are impossible to get unless you book directly with SAS. Arrived starved and angry after 8 hour flight."
Pros: "On time, great customer service and great food."
Pros: "The promptness of leaving and arriving. The general friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "Movie selection is not great. Food was ok maybe slightly better than most airline food. My dissatisfaction is with Washington airport. J had two hours between flights and because of total mismanagement in immigration I missed my flight to atlanta. Totally unacceptable. I might not even get on the ten pm flight."
Pros: "Pleasant and safe flught"
Cons: "Bad food Bad service Dirty plane Bad choice of movie collection You only get one glas of non alcoholic drink with your main meal. If you want more you have to pay ! Thats not a good service for a long trip fligt: washington-copenhagen and back. All other Airlines i have been with gives you a choice to choose between 2 different meals, buT SAS they decide for you ! And i have never seen any airline serve pork/ ham because of different believes people have, but SAS service you pork on an international 8 hours flight ! This is first time and last time I’m gonna fly with SAS. I always fly with KLM , perfect in everything and anyway. NO MORE SAS FOR ME !"
Pros: "Comfortable seats in economy..... SAS did wait for us to board the plane (allowed us to make the final connection Copenhagen to DC), Thanks,,,,,"
Cons: "Our bags did not make the connection. Lost a camera with vacation photos (Canon - Elph - black color with a card full of vacation photos.) Sad.... :-("
Cons: "Not enough characters to express my disappointment."
Pros: "Airplane was fine"
Pros: "Will choose SAS again."
Cons: "WiFi didn't work and movie selection could be a bit better. That's all."
Cons: "Never made it to destination"
Pros: "Pleased with everything."
Pros: "Service on the plane was good. The airplane was on time."
Cons: "From the time we reached the airport until we got to the gate was 90 minutes. SAS systems for checking baggage by machine sucks. My wife's number on the booking reference didn't work in the machine Thus we waited in line for 20 minutes to get a boarding pass, but didn't get the baggage tags for her luggage. Another line. SAS overall sucks."
Pros: "Movies were good."
Cons: "The quality was not worth the price. I could've taken another airline for cheaper and got better service"
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude. Not once was water offered. Only one drink cart for >8 flight."
Pros: "Scandinavian Airlines was good to work with in person to fix issues."
Cons: "This was a connecting flight that was swapped to go to Newark instead of DC due to unforeseeable delays in DC. Not bad in and of itself but they only gave me a few hours notice that my flight was changed (email sent at 1 AM on a 7 AM flight) and I lost my already paid for upgrade to premium economy. They couldn't find any record of me having purchased an upgrade when I went to check in on my 5+ hour flight."
Cons: "TV's on our whole row did not work for the entire flight. Reading lamp was burned out. It would have been tolerable for a domestic flight but these amenities are needed and appreciated on a six hour flight!"
Cons: "Almost absent crew And almost no service. Made flight with United and with United connection. SAS lost my connection, told ME I canceled my reservation. What a mess that was! I could also not reserve any seats online because flight was partner united flight and neither airline would allow me to choose seats."
Cons: "Delay after delay. Screaming kid the whole flight. Could not sleep."
Pros: "Great entertainment in modern plane with good service."
Cons: "Having to purchase alcohol is annoying on transatlantic. At least offer a wine or two."
Pros: "Great leg room."
Cons: "The food was just ok."
Pros: "Movie selection/Entertainment choices were good. Food was ok. Overhead storage space was adequate."
Cons: "Seats are awfully small and legroom is cramped. The crew was standoffish and inattentive. Beverage service is lacking."
Pros: "Traveled business class after winning the upgrade bid. Really felt like there was little room for improvement. The physical set up, the service, the entertainment were all delightful. The privacy, the horizontal sleep option on a 9 hour flight were just special."
Cons: "Felt the food choices needed an upgrade. Fresh is not the only important ingredient."
Pros: "Great service overall. Will definitely use again!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and staff of the center transfer."
Cons: "Planting was detained for an hour and I arrived late on a transfere. I forced to spend the night at the hotel and my patients were left without the surgeon on Monday. At the front desk I was not warned that the flight is delayed and I missed the opportunity to buy another ticket. When I asked before boarding the plane, I have time to transplant, I was told that all be good. But it was lie. I will try use another company."
Cons: "Well I looked online and the type of ticket I purchased said that I would have a free checked bag and I did not and I was charged 66€"
Pros: "Great crew. Clean plane. Good food. Entertainment kept us busy especially our 3 year old."
Cons: "I really enjoyed flying with SAS on my way to Stockholm but on my return flight back to DC it was dreadful. Boarding the plane in Stockholm was one of the most unorganized setups I've ever witnessed. Something so simple was made so complicated. Second, their seat recliners go so far back that you barely have space in front of you and can barely see your tv screen. On my previous flight I was in a row where there was no one in front of us so I didn't get to experience the recliner situation. Passengers on the plane were getting into fights. So bad."
Cons: "Crew not friendly. One was very rude"
Cons: "90 min waiting in the plane withou ac in IAD 4 hs delay in Copenhagen airport. I missed flight back from Athens because a ferry delay from Santorini despite calling SAS being updated of my delay. When I arrived to Athens airport, SAS staff left and KAYAK was not supportive. My tickets were cancelled from Athens to IAD."
Pros: "Great flight all went well,"
Pros: "Clean Cabin/Food selection/"
Cons: "it all started at Boarding..... long lines with no access for premium passengers to board. get to Aircraft and no greeting......Late /Delayed Departure which caused a HELL of a Trip including missed connections in IAD and Sleeping in the Airport till that next day! my 16 hour trip back home turned into 37 Hours.........Cabin Crew not so friendly and in a rush! I was surprised, normally they are always pleasant and smiling."
Cons: "Could not even PAY for an upgrade due to a meal request, even though I brought my own food - and would waive the meal request. Inedible vegetarian meals in flight. Earbuds didn't work. At least I had my own to use. Plane became stifling warm mid-way. Friendly flight crew does not make up for the terrible gate experience and inflight discomfort. SAS cares about profits not passengers. Plan to take another airline on future flights to Europe."
Cons: "sas online system needs to be overhauled and user friendly. one sas phone agent not helpful, called back and the agent was very helpful"
Pros: "The crew was very professional, upbeat, and helpful. The newer seats allow for more legroom, and the selection of a wide variety of on-demand movies."
Cons: "The inability to easily view and choose a special meal is a recurrent issue with SAS - even when contacting the airline directly to rectify this issue, the ball was dropped on the return flight, and the crew scrambled to find a replacement meal. On-line boarding continues to be an issue for Green Card holders returning to the US - why not explain that one cannot pre-print boarding passes and instead must go to boarding pass issues-line as soon as one enters the airport."
Pros: "It was the only non-stop flight for our needs. Timing was great too. It was nice to have 2 seats to ourselves."
Cons: "Going over our flight was cancelled at the last minute. We paid more for a non-stop flight we did not receive, lost wages because we both worked half-days to accommodate this flight departure time, and lost half a day of our trip. When we did fly on SAS to return, I found the service and amenities lacking. Why serve drinks well before your meal time and then not come back through with drinks again? Overall, it was not the best flight experience."
Pros: "There seemed to be a little more leg room on this flight compared to the flight from IAD to CPH on 6/26/16."
Cons: "The movie choices weren't nearly as good as the flight from IAD to CPH on 6/26/16."
Cons: "I arrived in Copenhagen with no ticket. I was unable to print my connecting ticket in Gdansk and the woman at the SAS counter in Gdasnk could not help me either. When I landed in Copenhagen, I had several hours before the next flight. I went through immigration and went to the SAS counter where my gate was. Woman told me I could not print the ticket there until an hour before the flight, but if I wanted to go back through immigration, I could get it printed there. I opted to just wait. One hour before the flight there was a huge line of people like me who had not tickets. I stood for about 30 minutes until I finally got it. Then flight was delayed an hour... Everyone was really nice and the flight was enjoyable, I just don't get what the heck is up with their ticketing system. Why can't I print a ticket at any SAS counter with printing capabilities? Why doesn't the phone app work? Why can I print connecting flights at kiosk?"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the leg room was enough. Nice selection of music and movies."
Cons: "My luggage was ripped open. The suitcase is damaged. Alcoholic drinks are not free(even on the international flight, which I never experienced). Trays with food stay forever on your table( slow service).on The 7hour long international flight you can hardly sleep because the food is at the awkward times and it's not cleaned up in forever afterwards. Not very friendly crew."
