Airline reviews

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: "Crew was great. Peppy and kind."
Cons: "ORD ZRH seats extremely crowded. Wished for comfy Star Alliance seats for that flight which we did enjoy from ZRH BUD"

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: "Some of the best airplane food I’ve had."

Pros: "Crew was attentive to passenger needs in a quiet way: without fanfare, did all possible to make it a pleasant, comfortable trip. In fact, went out of their way to get me a wheelchair ride to next flight, which I dearly needed"
Cons: "First flight was delayed due to circumstances outside of airline’s control. They managed to get us there and help me with wheelchair, etc to make flight. Great service and kindness"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and the crew was great"

Cons: "When I purchased the ticket I did not know that I have to pay for my bag. It would have been nice to know about this in advance"

Cons: "Food is bad"

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: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The aircraft was horrible No space at all even after paying for a better seat"

Cons: "I’m a small person & your seating is cramped & uncomfortable!"

Pros: "The entire process from boarding in Chicago until arrival in Athens was very smooth."

Cons: "My special meal wasn’t available."

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

Cons: "Almost missed my third plane, too."

Pros: "Online check-in was easy, boarding was smooth, and time on the flight seemed to go by quickly. Seats were a little too close together in economy to fully relax but that's the nature of economy seating. The dinner was very tasty, crew was friendly."
Cons: "My seat-back entertainment system did not work, but I had not planned to use it anyway. For the other three members of my family it did work, but not very well. Fortunately they had other options they brought with them."

Cons: "Very little space- I thought I was in economy plus having paid extra for seat reservation. When person infrint put seat back it was very difficult to view screen"

Pros: "Captain kept us informed regarding takeoff"
Cons: "Sitting too long"

Pros: "Excellent Service. Excellent food."

Pros: "2 seats on outside sections not 3, so you can sit together as a couple and not have a random stranger in seat 3."
Cons: "Leg room is on the tighter side!"

Pros: "The flight was perfect until we hit horrible turbulence. 1 out of every 4 people was throwing up. We had to redirect to Milan."
Cons: "Swiss air is completely inept at handling a very normal reroute due to weather. 200 displaced people are standing in line. I’ve been here 5 hours and have not heard a word of announcement from them, our questions are rudely thwarted, and they continue to take half-an-hour to an hour per person with uncertain results. Give use new flights or a hotel."

Pros: "I hope this carrier grows by leaps and bounds. The plane was new & clean, the pilots executed flawless takeoff & landing, the flight attendants were friendly to a fault, the plane left on time & arrived early. Round trip Orlando-Venice was $980 round trip. The only niggling detail was the somewhat limited selection of movies."

Pros: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."

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: "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: "very professional crew, clean cabin, interesting choice of documentaries"
Cons: "it would have been nice to see a hostess walk through with water every hour, of so why is there no world news in your tv selection?"

Pros: "The flight attendants seemed very courteous, but unable to do anything about the situation."
Cons: "We had a family of four sitting behind us. The father yelled all the time. They took up four overhead bins and he was frequently up and down getting things out of the bins. His very hairy large belly was touching my daughters head every time. He and his children punched the backs of our seats on a regular basis. My back was in constant pain and I was unable to do very many things due to the back pain during my "vacation", The flight attendants had to remind the parents that their children could not stand on the seats during takeoff or crawl around under the seats. No ability to change seats or I would have. I didn't have a problem with the other children on the flight, when they were crying their parents tried to do something. However these people brought playdough for their child to roll out or punch on the seat tray and all they did was constantly yell loudly at their children, Well not about the kicking, punching, or crawling around. Just yell in general at them."

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: "Very friendly staff, a wide variety of entertainment options."
Cons: "I'm a pretty small person (5'4 and 110 pounds) and it was very hard for me to get comfortable. Not that you'd expect much out of an economy class seat."

Cons: "Not. Lot of room for legs. Slection of movies very poor. Very old movies mostly"

Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful."
Cons: "Seats are so narrow and led room. Another bathroom is always a plus."

Pros: "Seats very confortabile"

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

Pros: "Staff were courteous and there was abundant food and beverage service."
Cons: "No child activities were distributed by the crew (like they did for our return flight)."

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: "More space with a window seat than I am used to. Shoulder didn't even touch the side of the plan. Loaded the back of the plan first after premium and those needing extra time."
Cons: "By the time they got to me I only had one choice for the dinner meal. No restroom in the back of the plane so I got stuck waiting for the cart to come all the way down the aisle before I could go to use it."

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"

Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "The selection of movies was not impressive"

Pros: "The flight went very smooth including boarding, transferring at Istanbul. The infotainment system was helpful in a way that you could see the real time camera feed of the ground and runway."
Cons: "Fewer passengers on board. I know it’s about profits and financial feasibility, however listening to a prerecorded message about 1.5 social distancing while being boarded 20 cm from 2 passengers undermines the whole thing, isn’t it?"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "This was the worst airline I have flown with. I booked my tickets last minute, it was for me and my 4 month old son. I had 3 suitcases a stroller and 2 carryons. I had paid for the suitcases, but because I was traveling alone I went there with my husband and he politely asked if they could please take the carryons on the plane because she can’t carry everything by herself. The manager came out and said that we have to pay. I said I already paid extra for my suitcases please help us because my wife is carrying our son, the diaper bag and 2 carryons. He was rude stating that we have to pay each carryon. We didn’t have the extra money and my wife took everything with her. If that’s how Turkish Airline treats their customers, they shouldn’t be operating. It was the last time I use this airline. No dignity or humanity, it’s all only about the money. And when I took the stroller with my son. They made me package the stroller by myself looking that I had my son on me crying and when I asked for help they said that they can’t help me... unbelievable... they see me with 2 carryons a stroller and a baby and they can’t help me."

Turkish Airline changed my connection time without notifying me such that I had 5 min left for my cooection in stambul. They gave me no other option and blamed this on Kayak and kayak blamed it on the Airline leaving me with no options. I had to stay in Birlin at my own expense. Complaint filed with Turkish airline resulted in nothing. I made several calls for update and only repose I got was we will send an email to the complaint dept. and you will here in 24 hours. This has been going on for over 5 days with no contect, update or resolution. Once back in the US, I plane to file a formal complaint with FAA and more. DO NOT take this airline.

But until then, I had attendants who were telling us to try things and then they'd leave and not come back to check up and follow through, which left us constantly trying to find someone...one time our call light was on for 20 minutes before anyone attended to us. In addition, the bathrooms were very dirty. The breakfast was a really bad muffin that I couldn't eat."

Pros: "Overall, United in US gets a two rating. International flights get a four rating."

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The seats on the Austria Airlines portion of the trip were very close together & very minimally structured (little padding, depth etc.)"

Pros: "In flight crew worked hard"
Cons: "No lines for boarding - it was a mess And randomly we were asked to check in our bags though Austrian crew had earlier tagged them for carry on"

Pros: "The hotel was nice although I was unable to sleep due to the delays all around concerning my connecting flight. I am thoroughly upset because I contacted the airlines 3 times in May to express my concern with the 30mins layover. And to no avail. My worst concerns are being played out now. It appears that their isn’t any concern from the airlines about this catastrophe impacting so many people. Shame on you."
Cons: "The connecting flight departed before the first flight landed. Then I was given the wrong information of gate departure by airport personnel. After running like crazy to find this gate for departure, the plane had already departed before we even landed. There wasn’t anyone around to help, and finally I found an airport worker who gave me the same incorrect information. She was as perplexed as was I. Finally, she directed me to the information booth where I was booked in a flight the next day. The food voucher was insufficient to cover dinner, i had to pay out of my pocket but I was frugal given the financial situation. The taxi service personnel were rude and it took a long time to taxi me to the hotel where I am unable to sleep because I have an early morning g departure. All in all, between the airport delays getting me to the hotel, lack of proper food and treatment by personnel, I am exhausted and lost sleep in the process."

Cons: "Was very satisfied with everything."

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "Food and workers were great"

Pros: "Good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Seat could be more comfortable"

Pros: "Great to be able to check in bags at the CAT railway station in the morning. Cabin crew were excellent- very friendly and helpful and did two drinks services. Austrian’s cabin crew sets them apart on European routes."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Everything:)"

Pros: "Everything went very well! Boarding was easy, the flight was smooth with little turbulence, we arrived on time, the crew was friendly and attentive, the food was good!"
Cons: "Everything was very smooth, except that the seats were not very comfortable!"

Pros: "The crew and the service was excellent. Dinner was excellent. The hot breakfast never came. We were served a roll and one small cup of coffee with no refills. That was my only complaint. On a long overseas flight I think a hot breakfast would have been better than a roll."

Cons: "very rocky,, too confined for such a long flight.thank you for a good lesson not to go austrian again"

Pros: "I get Airpoints with the flight, crew were lovely."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, so a few delays (as they were asking if anyone would layover to release a seat) and they were being very strict on the one bag per traveller, but that’s fair enough considering it was busy."

Pros: "Vino in Plastic cups from 1L"
Cons: "Could Food"

Pros: "Flight"

No luggage until yesterday.It never happen before.But in top of everything my plans in Albania were messed up.I have to pospne my return flight 1 week and the charges are unbelievable tooo much 650 dollars.I am not stopping here.Thank you."

Cons: "Complete lack of information and abrupt staff when flight was delayed"

Cons: "The aircraft was very old and smelled badly. The toillets didn't work properly and were dirty."

Pros: "Great staff, friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Everything was great except seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "No stops"

Pros: "Would fly with them anytime."

Pros: "After departing the cluster fk that is O'Hare airport it's such a pleasure to interact with Vienna and Austrian Air. I had 'only' an hour to make the connection, and yet all, that is all, formalities took no more than 10 minutes. I had plenty of time to spare. Waiting area at the gate had plenty of seating and the staff was professional and courteous. We had to gate check bags as the plane was a regional turboprop, but everything went very smoothly."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "As I was flying from London Heathrow back to Vienna, I had a carry-on that was allowed on my flight with Austrian from Vienna to London. My carry-on weighed 8 kg, like is required by the rules. While boarding my flight, the woman at the counter told me my bag had to be checked because there were too many carry-ons on the flight. I asked her that I keep my bag because I had medication in there, and she didn't listen to me at all. She just kept repeating that i have to check my bag, and then took my bag from me and gave it to the baggage crew there. I didn't want to make a huge scene because the flight is only 2 hours and I hoped i Could deal without my medication during that time, but I found it incredibly, incredibly rude and awful to not listen to a passenger."

Cons: "It was almost 2 hours delayed"

Cons: "Plane rescheduled, left 55 minutes later than anticipated. I was already preparing for having my luggage lost."

Pros: "The check- in experience was simple and the seat entertainment system was excellent!"
Cons: "Unfortunately, like any economy class seating, wider seats and more recline ability would be nice."

Cons: "Our baggage did not make it to our final destination"

Pros: "The boarding and exiting of the aircraft was smooth and organized. I really do prefer that passengers be strictly monitored when boarding the plane according to their seats. It really does make sense to board the plane from the rear forward. I realize airlines feel like they have to make their business class passengers feel special, but it really doesn't make sense for passengers to be climbing over one another."
Cons: "I left my entertainment at home in a mad rush to depart which is very unusual for me. As a result, I had to rely on Austrian Airlines' copyright licenses, and they were less than satisfactory. Fortunately, I'm flying back with Lufthansa, so I hope there will be more variety there. The lavatory at the back of the plane was filthy by the end of the flight. I don't understand why the flight attendants feel to good to clean the lavatories for their passengers. We are stuck on a flying can for 9-10 hours and deserve to have clean lavatories during that time. At one point, I was thirty and approached the back of the plane. When I entered the rear galley, the ladies looked at me like I was intruding. If self-service is not available for passengers, then flight attendants should be prepared to serve their customers."

Pros: "Service was spectacular. The United crew was awesome."

Pros: "Everything seemed all right"

Pros: "I am gluten free, and the stewardess knew what foods I could eat of the desserts and snacks, and I appreciated that there was food that I could eat."

Cons: "I wish the flight lasted longer than the usual 8 hours, such a great experience!"

Cons: "Seats in economy class were crammed with next to no leg room"

Cons: "The back of the plane was significantly warmer than the rest of the plane. Very little leg room."

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: "Excellent and professional crew members"
Cons: "Nothing, the flight was smooth, most enjoyable"

Pros: "Clean and very good stewardesses"

Pros: "On time travel. Check In Staff were kind and engaging."
Cons: "On flight staff were minimally attentive. Food was mediocre."

Cons: "The food offering"

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: "The staff and other guests are always so polite! Getting the SAS Lounge Pass is always smart."

Pros: "People were very kind. The food was terrific!"
Cons: "The entertainment system was slow."

Pros: "Aisle seat"
Cons: "Nothing was complimentary"

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: "Easy boarding. Friendly staff"
Cons: "N/A"

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: "On time, easy boarding"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full and everyone seemed to have at least two cases. This caused lots of jostling for space in the lockers"

Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Boarding was shambolic and the 737 is not as nice as the new A320 in terms of comfort or amenity. Boarding was all over the place - and the gate agents clearly need extra people around for a full flight. One person for 170 ppl didn't feel right."

Pros: "All went well !! On time friendly staff ."

Cons: "They only offered tea and coffee for free as a drink and nothing anything more, and were not kind at explaining this."

Pros: "Crew were excellent, had a row to myself, luggage turned up quickly"
Cons: "No landing cards given!"

Cons: "Food was really, really bad. Only one very bad choice ignoring health conditions of different passengers."

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: "Flight was on time and the crew was effcicient"
Cons: "My knees hit the sear in front of m before they recloined. No way to sleep."

Cons: "Unable to select seat/baggage until 22 hours before flight because not booked through SAS. Thought bagged was checked in online and had to pay More than the cost of the flight. Flight was delayed due to mechanical problem. Cabin very warm throughout flight."

Pros: "We were eventually rebooked in the class we paid for."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled with no notice. We were rebooked in economy class when we paid over $5,000 for business class tickets, and told we would "probably" receive a refund for the difference. after much prodding, asking and begging, we were finally rebooked in a flight on Lufthansa the same night. That airline was upset, though, because SAS did not call them or notify them that we had been switched to their airline."

Cons: "Water and beer paying"

Pros: "The food was very good surprisingly"
Cons: "Again the seats are too tight and they should not be allowed to recline"

Pros: "Upgraded 2 biz 4 reasonable $, everything great"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing to mention"

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: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Fight was canceled and no email or communication was possible with this company. Called SAS office - CLOSED. Stood in line for 2 hours and no one came or announced anything. Checkin agents were on dope-no help and checking machines not working!"

Cons: "Out of all the staff on board they did not give me and a few others those blue customs form, so we made a huge line and when we got to the agent he told us we had to go all the way around fill one out and then come back. The attendants new that those were necessary why so many yet not one made sure we got them lousy service. I wish we got a crew that wasnt so insecure and cared more about providing a good service instead of caring so much over their appearance. I rather have good efficient staff what they look like doesnt matter to me."

Pros: "Excellent meal and very friendly staff."
Cons: "The cabin temperature seemed pretty warm."

Pros: "Comfy and good movies!"

Cons: "Not even one bag was included!! And to add a bag is extremely expensive!!! Paid five hundred dkk for one bag!!! Terrible service as well!!!"

Cons: "Not enough room to work on laptop."

Pros: "Easy flight, nice crew members, no issues had here"
Cons: "My luggage didn't show up for five days of a 7 day trip from a direct flight! SAS was completely useless by phone, email, and Facebook.... They set up a phone line that nobody monitors and had my luggage in-country for days before even sending someone to deliver it"

Pros: "12 people got bumped!"

Pros: "Flight was Ok"
Cons: "Left till last to board flight. Case taken from me. Asked continually when I wld be taken as I am 83 and recovering from major operation. Told 45 minutes before flight but was taken 10 minutes ahead. Rush has left me very upset."

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"

Pros: "The flight crew (flight attendants are the best I've encountered in terms of tone and hospitality) cleanliness, the food, frequent offers of water, your own TV and numerous options for entertainment and ability to track flight"
Cons: "Like the sleek style but still wish there was a little more leg room"

Cons: "Miserable cramped seating ."

Cons: "1st class could not board because that area was not cleaned"

Cons: "Disorganization and unpreparedness."

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."

Pros: "Flight was fine, cr"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Free upgrade to SAS Plus, what's not to like!"

Pros: "The Plus Seating was really good"

Pros: "Thanks to the staff while checking in my luggage I was able to check my bags directly from Stockholm to Mexico City via preventing me to loose a lot of time in London where I was supposed to check in and out because I purchased my trilp in two different segments"
