Airline reviews

Cons: "The seats are small with very little leg room"

Cons: "On time departure would be nice. Overall very pleasant experience. Water and Swiss chocolates were served during under an hour flight. Thank you Swiss!"

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Good movie selection. Pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Six hour delay. They gave us $20 Franc voucher for food but in the airport a latte is 7.50 so 20 did not even buy a bowl of soup."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Cons: "My parents needed special assistance for boarding and changing flights in Zürich and SWISS was just phenomenal. Thank you very muc"

Pros: "the CREW WAS FRIENDLY AND CELEBRATING EASTER WITH THE GUESTS"
Cons: "THE FOOD WAS ADEQUATE, GIVEN THAT WE WERE ON AN AIRPLANE"

Pros: "The crew was terrific and friendly as I expected."
Cons: "I have no other suggestions here since I'm pleased with the flight and services."

Pros: "most of the flight attendants were excellent except one particular one who was basically yelling at passengers. she had a a logo or a badage on her that identifies her as a manager or a crew lead. she had poor manners and need major improvement"
Cons: "the seats are small and very small space in comparison to Lufthansa"

Pros: "I thought my out flight with Lufthansa would be good but it was surpassed by the return flight with Swiss Based on my experience I believe Swiss should be a 5 star airline as well"
Cons: "A slight delay"

Pros: "Reliable, modern cabin, nice crew"
Cons: "Some more music choices would be nice"

Pros: "-"
Cons: "Old plane, rude crew, checked bag was not included in price. I did fly Swiss to LA last year and it was amazing, i don’t know what happened since."

Pros: "Very kind crew. Great food. Nice leg room even for economy."
Cons: "This was one of the most empty flights I’ve ever been on. With that, lots of room for carry on baggage. I fail to see why it was necessary at all. It delayed my journey when time was of the essence."

Pros: "The crew was so friendly and professional, on top of the nice plane condition, which made the trip very pleasant!"
Cons: "The food standard seemed to be lowered a little bit, but still very well prepared."

Pros: "787 is an excellent plane and I could sleep a little"
Cons: "I was boarding at gate C4. Doesn't anyone get it ! Using the word "bomb" in airports is a big no-no however C4 is OK? Even a little old lady knows what C4 stands for."

Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"

Pros: "Everyone was so nice!"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Pros: "Very Pleasant Staff!"

Pros: "Clear, relatively comfortable plane. Free ski bag."
Cons: "Again, incredibly unhelpful re: my unusual situation. Flight attendants rigid and unkind to the woman next to me with a dog in a case. Almost like automatons. But that's typically Swiss, which I appreciate but they could definitely humanize a bit more!"

Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."

Cons: "The boarding process is very uncomfortable as the passengers are asked to board the plane without any specific order, regardless of where they’re sitting, instead of boarding them by groups."

Pros: "Service was great with staff being very professional Flights were on time and entertainment selections were good."

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Pros: "Food great!"
Cons: "Limited space , very narrow and not very clean. I seated next to a dog, pet. The whole trip the dog was sitting on the floor next to me:(, although it was a very quiet and good dog. Crew not very friendly . They were tired I believe ."

Pros: "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."

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

Cons: "Swiss staff was not helpful at all at Zurich airport. I wanted to purchase a day pass in the Business class lounge. They said i could do that but need to do it online. When I couldn't get my device to bring up the right screen they said they couldn't help me. Bad customerbaervixe"

Pros: "Very comfortable seats for coach, good service."

Pros: "Excellent pilot, very smooth fly and landing, good comunication, friendly , good food, nice crew,"
Cons: "A little more water, and too little nag wait in Zurich for connecting flight"

Pros: "zurich a great airport."
Cons: "cheese roll"

Pros: "EVERYTHING'S Good to come back home"

Pros: "We were very pleased with our flight on Swiss Air."

Cons: "person behind me wouldn't allow my seat to recline and was constantly pushing/kicking my seat. I notified crew, but nothing was done about it."

Cons: "100% of our checked luggage was lost and two days into our one week biking trip in Sweden we have heard NOTHING from Swiss Air. No knowledge of where the four large bags are, no follow up and no help. Basically, we have been left with biking clothing and little hope that our bags will show up before we leave Sweden. Unacceptable and we will NEVER fly this airlines again."

Pros: "Can't think of anything we didn't like. All the attendants were very nice, always smiling and helpful. It was great, will fly with Swiss again for sure."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Cons: "Delayed boarding due to overheated plane, when we did board it was still warm and we had to sit longer due to other mechanical issues. Wish they would have waited for all issues to be resolved before boarding."

Cons: "I wasn't on it so I wouldn't know."

Pros: "Time of flight"
Cons: "Food and entertainment were not good. Person next to me smelled bad"

Pros: "Good people."
Cons: "Bad food."

Pros: "Swiss planes were clean and everything worked. Flight attendants very friendly. Food was superb. Plus, the connection in Zurich, as always, was seamless and painless. Will definitely give Swiss my preference when looking at trans Atlantic flights."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Service, slot"
Cons: "Distance to gate"

Cons: "The delay at the airport"

Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Direct answer is "nothing"; however, it should be noted that this not a Swiss Air flight. It was a code share on a United Airlines flight."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "3 hour delay Noisy cabin due to loud engines One could hardly heard the movie audio from the Headphones during movie viewing even after they were replaced"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and made a bad situation as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 3 hours for a issue with the pilot's chair. The movies reset in the middle of the showing."

Pros: "Courteous crew, good food."
Cons: "The beer selection could use some work."

Pros: "Overall service was excellent and staff was courteous and helpful."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "First leg was on United (codeshare) 767. The seat pitch on that version was good, even for a tsix-footer. The flight was almost empty, so there was plenty of room to stretch across seats and sleep. In order to avoid dairy, I order kosher meals - and the quality was OK. The cabin crew was nice to start with, and very relaxed and friendly as the flight progressed because of the low-stress service for so few passengers."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "I have nice trip"
Cons: "I like everything excellent"

Pros: "Great service and comfortable ride excellent staff"
Cons: "Cannot expect better service"

Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Most of it was of a reasonable standard."
Cons: "Plane was full"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was maybe average, that was still the best point."
Cons: "Extremely tight space. The food was almost inedible. Awful."

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

Cons: "They have to uptade the airplanes"

Pros: "I like the professional approach of the airline and the staff. Seats are really comfortable and i did not need my sleeping pillow at all as the headrest of my seat was already so comfortable."
Cons: "There is not much which i did not like about this airline. Just like other airlines, now have started feeling that Economy class travellers are being approached with bit biased approach in hospitality though they have major contribution in meeting flight running expenses. All airlines should start considering this fact and improve the overall approach."

Pros: "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Cons: "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"

Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."
Cons: "Thé food was rather stodgy overall."

Pros: "Virgin Atlantic offers good service at a reasonable price to/from the US to London. Good food service and unbelieveable number of movies and entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "The seating and leg room in economy classic were inadequate. We felt way too confined in our seats and the leg room was a joke. I am only 6' tall and this was unacceptable. We will try to upgrade for the return trip."

Pros: "Staff on this flight were excellent"

Pros: "Great, friendly, professional crew, clean comfortable plane. Loved that full dinner and baggage and wine was included in an economy class overnight from DC to London as well as breakfast. Best flight in a long time, will definitely fly again."
Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."

Cons: "The plane seemed to be a little bit old, especially entertaining equipment"

Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience was horrible."
Cons: "I didn't make it to Siem Reap because the first leg of the trip from IAD to London was cancelled by Virgin Atlantic after it was fully boarded. The excuse was that a flight attendant had food poisoning and was unable to fly and so the entire flight was cancelled. The Virgin team seemed unconcerned and showed NO sense of urgency to try and get people rebooked. Their solution was to rebook everyone on an evening flight the next day. If a passenger was only going to London, that was probably fine. But for people with connecting flights -- or like me with multiple connecting flights -- that wasn't acceptable."

Pros: "Overall comfortable journey"
Cons: "No option to book food option 24 hours before as could check in could not been done earlier than 24 hours before flight. I logged exactly 24 hrs before filled in details which took a few minutes by that time said too late to book special meal."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Seats in economy are way to small and very uncomfortable if tall. Too close to the seats in front of you. I was miserable all the way to London."

Pros: "Even it was a 12-13hrs flight, I had been my best flight ever in a long flight. Virgin really exeeced my expectations."

Pros: "Efficient, friendly, on-time!"

Pros: "Seat is very comfortable"

Pros: "Everything!"

Cons: "One toilet not working"

Pros: "Nothing because I was given a middle seat"
Cons: "6'4 and I get a middle seat.."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seat reclining happens even during meal time and landing! I had to ask crew to get passenger in front to put seat back upright during meal time!!! Crew should've noticed themselves and ask the passenger without my prompting!! So annoyed!! I complained to VA too"

Pros: "From check in to landing in London, the gracious, helpful crew impressed us with their attitude and service"
Cons: "Sound didn't work on some of the entertainment choices"

Pros: "The food was surprisingly ok and the seats in PE were comfortable, plus there were two USB ports, perfect!"
Cons: "Being woken up to be asked if I wanted to eat, twice! If I wanted to eat, I wouldn't have a sleeping mask on my face, or be asleep! Plus, upper class and premium economy didn't board first."

Pros: "On time, everything normal."
Cons: "Seat space so small that my knees were up against the next seat, even without it tilting back."

Pros: "They were were very kind and helpful to all passengers"

Pros: "Genuinely pleasant cabin crew, good service, good food."
Cons: "Virgin Upper Class seats are cramped, with very limited stowage space. Turning the seat into a lay flat bed (and returning it seat at the end of the flight) takes some effort--not the simplest of processes. I'm not tall, but my feet protruded into the aisle so I was being disturbed whilst sleeping. Seat is also quite narrow--feels quite claustrophobic when sleeping."

Pros: "Still a more pleasant experience than BA but others have overtaken. Crew make a difference though."
Cons: "Limo service wasn't great in China - asked for address of hotel - a major international chain and confusion on booking details"

Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."

Pros: "Smiling and helpful staff Great FREE food and drinks good movies Free goodie bag of travel goods, blanket, pillow etc Free candy for landing descent"
Cons: "Leg room is a little tight"

Pros: "The crew,food and entertainment the food has improved, the ground and flight staffs was very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "We were flying to Miami, then into a cruise,weighs restrictions,we were find a100 dollars for a couple more kg, we were on holiday for nearly three weeks"

Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "The crew left my breakfast in the sear next to me because I was asleep (unfortunately i didn't notice till I started to disembark...)"
Cons: "I couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep very well, even though I was in a window seat (which I can normally lean on)."

Pros: "Everything except the plane itself"
Cons: "Plane cramped"

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

Pros: "Mostly everything was fine."
Cons: "Not really anything particularly that I didn't like."

Pros: "It was a great experince we enjoy the flight other than the delay on the luggage"
Cons: "one of my luggage was lost and delayed for 2hrs. We waited at the Airport for the luggage to arrive."

Pros: "I loved wine and whiskey. Blanket and blindfolds, headphones helped me sleep. Care packet with toothbrush came in handy."
Cons: "The Sears were tight and thin. I felt pushes from behind. I could not recline the seat enough. I didn't get a window seat, which is my favorite."

Pros: "We were late arriving at the airport and the checkin desk people were SO nice putting us through. Otherwise we never would have made it on the flight. Also the extra legroom seats were well worth it!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Staff excellent - Inflight screen useful."
Cons: "Could not do online Check in - apparently as there were 4 separate legs on my Ticket."

Pros: "At JFK the lounge and service was the best I have encountered."

Pros: "Everything on-board was awesome...Great job guys!!!"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled at the time I was standing in front of the airline counter to check my bag. I was so furious. The airline did not help me at ALL. In fact, they offer me to buy a brand new ticket at a new price!!!!!! I ended up re-bought the ticket from United airline as my husband has United card (chase) and we ended up paying over 1900 for the ticket that should have been about $911. The priceline number is not helping. I have trip insurance but no. nothing worked. I will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."

Pros: "Pleasant, helpful staff at check-in and on flight"

Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive at my destination until 2 days after I did. And after I checked my luggage, a leather satchel was stolen from my suitcase. I reported the theft to Virgin Atlantic and requested a report nearly a week ago and have heard nothing back. I am usually careful about packing luggage, and did not think the leather satchel would attract a thief working for the airline, but I will not make that mistake again! DO NOT TRUST VIRGIN TO HANDLE LUGGAGE."

Pros: "Food was great. Complimentary wine a nice touch."
Cons: "The leg room was so short. There would be no way to do the safe landing positions. and the head rest forces your head forward. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Pleasant crew, quick boarding."
Cons: "Late departure, late arrival due to a plane at our gate. Very poor quality media systems, cramped, inconsiderate passenger next to me taking up more room than necessary. Cramped."

Cons: "Layout of seats is not very social when traveling with partner in business class."

Pros: "Middle seats not booked. Cabin very clean, bathrooms kept tidy throughout trip. Very friendly crew. Appreciated cold drinks and selection of snacks,"

Pros: "Crew from Washington to Cancún were extremely rude"
Cons: "Smile"

Cons: "Everything was fine... I should have packed a snack because I’m always hungry! Will travel Delta again!"

Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "I didn't get to continue the series I started watching on an earlier flight, as this plane had more limited options. We also waited on the tarmac an long time before take-off, waiting for a part to be delivered to our plane so we could take it to Indianapolis with us."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and had great personality. They anticipated any needs we had."

Pros: "It’s nice to be in a plane fitted with modern conveniences. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn’t have a window at all. The staff didn’t offer any snacks to us. My bag was the only one that didn’t make it while I had a plenty long layover."

Pros: "Quickly moving through the airport."
Cons: "Take out old planes. It was really run down."

Pros: "The plane was nice"
Cons: "I’m still sitting in Minneapolis so I would have liked to be at my destination. And I had to pay for the overnight accommodations."

Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Although airlines are stingy with snacks, Delta had a good overall selection and very generous."
Cons: "Something that cant be changed overnight, however, there should be a little more Aisle space for folks pass through as my shoulder was getting beat up after every passing person and cart."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Wish the seat was more comfortable. Landing was jittery and bumpy."

Cons: "Delayed takeoff by an hour because the plane was too heavy. Had to kick 8 passengers off the flight before they would takeoff."

Pros: "The flight attendant from IAD to MSP called Bernadette was wonderful!"

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Super comfortable seats. Lots of movie options."
Cons: "Food was not very good"

Pros: "Flight was smooth, arrived early..crew was prompt and courteous."

Pros: "Luggage plane to carousel at Atlanta way too slow"
Cons: "Smooth flight, more than average beverages serving; food fine. Seats too small."

Pros: "Crew trying their best to keep passengers happy. Arrival on time."
Cons: "Incredibly bad, mostly unhealthy, overprocessed food. Glad I brought my own. Very narrow seats. No opportunity to upgrade to economy plus. One day you will have casualties from minimizing further and further the seating space until even normal- sized people collapse from lack of blood circulation. (On my outbound flight from Atlanta to D' dorf an oversized seat neighbor literally flowed partly into my seat, making matters worse.) A major concern: stewardesses support the general fashion of darkening the cabin in the interest of movie watchers and general quiet. What about my right to daylight, especially during a day flight from D' dorf to Atlanta? It's helpful against jetlag. 11 hours in a darkened pipe followed by arrival at night time are unhealthy. The film program is not intetesting enough to justify this decision."

Pros: "Crew and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Cabin was very loud, with jet engine noise. Could not block it out. Seats were not comfortable."

Cons: "They changed the gate twice on me and by the time I got to the correct one, the flight had already left."

Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"

Pros: "Fly attenden alwas with a beautiful smile"

Pros: "The crew were fantastic and tried their best the delay."
Cons: "Delayed flight. 2 hours delay. Had to rebook a connecting flight and hence was very tight to board the next flight"

Pros: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."
Cons: "First class did not come with lounge access? Drinks were not cold. Bathrooms were falling apart and came with a disgusting odor. Time to retire these aircrafts."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice based on the situations beyond their control."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about three hours, due to mechanical issues with the second engine not starting. We sat on the the plane for over an hour and half. Some people that missed their connection flights were offered hotel stay. Others that had no connection flight was not offered anything for the several hours of delay that occurred."

Cons: "Tv"

Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request."

Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."

Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."

Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"

Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."

Pros: "My flight was canceled but Delta rebooked me on a flight leaving at about the same time as my original flight, which arrived just a little later than originally anticipated"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled"

Cons: "Delayed two hours"

Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"

Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"

Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."

Pros: "Landed 45 minutes early! Allowed me to take an earlier flight Detroit to Boston which made me really happy"

Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Felt like a sardine . Just like ALL fights these days."

Cons: "There delay"

Pros: "The staff was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "The wifi did not work, my seatbelt was literally broken/unattached, they had no coffee. This may seem minor to some but when you are at the airport at 4 a.m with a child you don't expect all yhese things to happen."

Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."

Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"

Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Pros: "exit row - good leg room; new storage compartment was good."
Cons: "New seats = hard; got uncomfortable after about an hour. Wish there was a way to disconnect folding tray from behind seat - person behind kept dropping it, drumming on it, open it and closing it - really a nuisance."

Pros: "Crew were very friendly and courteous as well as very helpful."
Cons: "Can't play games at the IFE ... Freezing."

Pros: "I am 6'6" 300 pounds ... So I regularly book first class for trips over 2 hours in length ... Delta remains my #1 choice for both value and overall experience in first class. The difference between Delta and all other domestic carriers is just overwhelming. United and American/US Air could learn a lot from Delta. I could have flown this trip direct on United, but chose to fly through Atlanta on Delta for less money and a better experience from the baggage check to the gate to the in-flight experience."

Pros: ".....delta in Washington was great changed my flight so I didn't have delay !!!!!! Will always use"

Cons: "I did not like being assigned to a seat that did not recline at all and was given no up front warning so it was a very unwelcome surprise at the start of my 6+ hour flight."

Cons: "Better boarding and entertainment"

Pros: "Flight departed on time. Crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Boarding seem to be chaotic, no boarding by group or seat number."

Pros: "As previously stated hated having to go through security again"
Cons: "Chocolate"

Cons: "Well,my whole trip was an adventure! Problem with my checked in bag, so i had to pay 22 pounds extra to fit it in a connection flight and now i have to send receipt to get the refund. On my way back, there was a delay, so i missed the flight and the checked in bag"

Pros: "The crew was friendly. The seating was ok but dirty floors"

Pros: "Very Organised and punctual"

Pros: "Everything except delay"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "It was not immediately apparent that boarding was in a completely different terminal which was accessible by train, so this lack of info could have cost me arriving in good time as I thought I had sufficient time. I aldo found ground staff at the customer service desk very unsympathetic and unhelpful when I asked for assistance on grounds of ill health. They were quite condescending ."
Cons: "Ground staff poor customer service"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything except the checking in process"

Pros: "I'm tall so the suit was somewhat uncomfortable."
Cons: "Other than the tight space I have no other complaints."

Cons: "You canceled my trip"

Pros: "Evrything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight was adequate."
Cons: "Sandwich was extremely unappetising and there were no hot drinks. The worst thing was that in transiting from the SAA flight to the Lufthansa flight we were obliged to go through security which seems unnecessary. The security staff were awful. Bullying, rude and totally unsympathetic to the fact that having brought water from the first plane to the second plane we had to either drink it or throw it away. One guy in particular, a tall greying man evoked the worst stereotypes of brutal secret policemen. Perhaps he formerly worked for Stasi or he was having testosterone problems. Totally unacceptable behaviour."

Pros: "The boarding process was well organized and fast."

Cons: "1hr 20 minutes late"

Cons: "The temperature on the airplane was uncomfortably warm. Not sure what was up with the AC but I had to change clothes and freshen up once arriving at my layover."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "A bass blasting private event at the airport near Lufthansa gate"

Pros: "Did manage to get priority transfer which I requested from Dubrovnik but was told. “We do not do those”"
Cons: "Rest of the flight was bearable nothing write about. Typical cheap alow cost flight"

Pros: "Ok"

Pros: "See above"

Cons: "It was too cold on the plane."

Cons: "I will never fly Lufthansa again anywhere"

Pros: "On time and smooth"

Pros: "On time!!!!"

Pros: "All!"

Cons: "Finnair are hellbent on trying to sell goods and continuously interrupt the movies with their confounded announcements every 15 minutes very annoying. If i wanted to buy something its in their mag and as a regional flight it should include some form of nourishment other than juice or coffee one off, tight fisted and not a descent selection of food either"

Pros: "The crew was great!"

Pros: "Speed boarding process."
Cons: "No entertainment system on a 3 hour flight..."

Pros: "Service, staff, food and beverages all excellent"
Cons: "Seat was just a little hard when lying on my side"

Cons: "Air conditioning was blasting down on me too powerfully"

Pros: "Nothing!!"

Pros: "the price was very good"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Breakfast"

Cons: "Experienced very rude cabin crew"

Pros: "The energy of the crew was upbeat despite the lock of enertainment they tried their best by accommodating my various wishes."
Cons: "They were no snacks available except the ones that we had to pay for - which in fact I thought was a bit pretentious towards the passengers."

Pros: "It was not Finnair it was all British airways."

Cons: "Smooth flight Arrived early."

Cons: "When I arrived to board my flight I was highly unsatisfied with the excessive charges I received for my luggage that was overweight (only by 7 pounds). I was not only charged an additional $100 for my second checked bag, but I was also charged $200 for the extra weight. As a college student traveling abroad for 6 months, I did not expect to be bombarded with these fees at the beginning of my journey. Due to this experience, I would like to have been notified ahead of time of the expected charges as it made me uneasy before a long flight."

Cons: "BA lost my baggage. The sandwich they offered was uneatable. Marshall Hoffman"

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Seats were very small"

Pros: "Crew, boarding, cleanliness of the plan, and all other aspects other than food were good/excellent."
Cons: "The vegetables in the meal / salad were still frozen….inedible. In the morning in the asian vegetarian meal it was simply fruit…that was it. No protein source. I have been on many BA flights and the food has not been this poor, so not sure if the carrier who services food source has changed."

Cons: "Need wifi to work. Highly dissapointed that BRITISH air doesn't have this feature. Most airlines do!!"

Cons: "There was a very poor selection of movies to watch:( Last tim ei flew AA, and there was an absolutely huge choice . . . Would love to see that improved . . I think you have to cater for all tastes . . . and that definitely was not the case on my flight"

Pros: "Checking and boarding was lighting fast"
Cons: "There was a bit of a delay, which was due to weather and certainly not their fault. They kept us informed"

Pros: "For once the seats have enough space. Airlines think we are cattle and that they can pack as much as possible every airplane. For once I was glad to have a confortable experience."

Cons: "Our bag was not checked through to our final destination and was delivered a day later."

Pros: "Good leg room."
Cons: "I paid an extra $90 to pick this seat. On the website it looked like an exit row seat with lots of room. However I couldn't really move out of my seat without climbing over others. It was a waste of $90."

Pros: "Nice one"
Cons: "Nice one"

Pros: "easy - no surprises"

Pros: "The flight left on time, boarding was a breeze, the food was the only good food I've had while flying ever, seating was better than I was expecting, the movie selection was vast and up to date, and we made phenomenal timing in getting to our destination"
Cons: "Checking in online was difficult - it couldn't find my booking. I was panicking three hours before I was scheduled to depart! I was instructed to go check in at the desk by the service rep on the phone, which was straightforward process, but I was half-expecting being told that my booking had been cancelled"

Pros: "I have a BA - Gold card- BA lounge was good."
Cons: "Comfort- Plans are Old, Entertainments is Worst. BAD BAD BAD."

Pros: "This was a Finnair ticket on a BA flight. The price was excellent and BA was excellent."

Pros: "Head phone jack was not working in my seat."

Cons: "Trying to get through airport security was an unorganized clown show with them herding groups of passengers back and forth between airport terminals resulting in many people almost missing their flights because the lines just weren't moving. Once on the airplane, the international flight had TVs in the ceiling in the row playing one in-flight movie (what is this 1995?). American is such a terrible airline. The old US airways, Lufthansa, and British Airways, are way better international flights every time I've flown with them. Personal entertainment at your seat for each flight (i thought this was standard on all international flights in the past like 10 years) and more food and drinks throughout the flight."

Pros: "And perfectly on time!"

Pros: "Accuracy Staff Serving"
Cons: "My name was wrongly written on the passanger list."

Cons: "There was a terrible smell; food and drinks were served two hours after the flight started, it was dirty, cold and cramped. The whole experience was traumatising!"

Pros: "Movie selection was excellent."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and tight quarters. First class was too expensive."

Cons: "I booked the finnair flight because it was direct and charged $60 for additional bags to check in. For me this was really important since I was moving countries so I needed to check in multiple bags. But since this was in partnership with British Airways, I was charged $90 instead of $30. This was not mentioned or made clear before I made my purchase, if i buy a finnair flight then I should be charged finnair prices on baggage. If not, this should have been made clear before hand so I could have weighed my flight options. I hope you are able to provide a resolution."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The upgrade to World Traveler Plus was $330.00 and worthless. They assured me Business Class food service. NOT TRUE. You get the usual coach class prison-type food. Non-existent flight crew service (I got one mini can of Coke the entire flight). Cramped seat next to noisy bathroom. Whole experience was bad."

Cons: "When I got to Phl I missed my connection to London. No one seemed to care that I needed to be in England by the 18th. They kept retorting me to arrive in England on the 19th. I told them multiple times Id be flexible and go to any city in the UK just for them to get me there on the 18th. The First person I talked to said it was impossible. So I called again and talked to another person and all of a sudden it was possible. The worst part was they sent me to Boston after that I didn't get to Boston until 1:50 am and they did not compensate with hotel or anything while my flight to London was not until 8:00 am the next morning. So I spent the night in the airport. Oh and then when I finally got to London, my bag is lost and they told me I'd have it by tomorrow and I still do not have my bag and have called and they said they can't tell me anything."

Pros: "First time across the Atlantic, and the British/French crew was the most polite crew ever."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cramped, cold,"

Pros: "Seats are snug. You get to know your neighbors really well."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "If I had known when I made the reservation it was American airline would have never booked a ticket plane was dirty food terrible the whole plane needed a update"

Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "There was a lack of air and no possibility for individual airing your seat, during our flight we had to stand in the back because we were almost passing out of overheating 30 Celsius plus heat in our row. We asked for a cooler temperature and only the last 20 minutes it started cooling but then to ice cold. My audio was not working properly, at max it was still unclear. We have had better flight experiences."

Cons: "Seats on the Dreamliner seemed cramped and too close together."

Pros: "Neat and clean interior that was welcoming and the Airbus looked quite new helping boost one's confidence in it. Have travelled previously in flights where the upholstery is tattered and the plane itself would have seen better days."
Cons: "The seats! Incredibly tight fit and the side armrest would not go back completely either. And what's more, I have a petite frame and if I had trouble I can't imagine what others would have gone through."

Pros: "On time departures. Good service"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Tiny seats. Wouldn't let me pay for an upgrade. Last time I ever use kayak"

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "N/A"
