Cons: "Food on those airplanes is always bad. There were not enough chicken sandwiches and some passengers only were given cheese sandwiches."

Cons: "Swiss has finally done it! If you are a person who is large framed, around 225 lbs or higher you will not fit into their economy seats. I'm quite athletic and not obese but large framed (ex- football player), I could not sit squarely in the seat as my hips were severely pinched. Misery :("

Pros: "I was offered to check in my carry on, it was nice."
Cons: "I was told a wheel chair would be available to help me get to Terminal E in Zurich. I had literally TO RUN to catch my connecting flight to NYC since the chair was not their for me in Zurich. I almost missed my flight. I am a 79 years old woman. That was one terrible experience."

Cons: "Economy is profoundly uncomfortable -- as with all its competitors."
Pros: "Nice crew, lot of space"

Cons: "Too hot on plane, despite several requests to turn up air conditioning. Would be nice if pilot gave a few more updates as to why we sat on the tamac so long."
Pros: "A very friendly and attentive crew and a decent meal. Comfort is still iffy in coach but better than most American airlines. Good selection of movies to pass the time."

Pros: "Both times I flew with Swiss airlines it’s been great! Food is pletntiful, staff is very kind."
Pros: "Delayed...delayed and delayed some more!!!!!"
Cons: "Worst travel experience ever and I’ve traveled the world. Red eye flight delayed for 3 hours. Missed connection flight with not a lot of options. Waited for another 3 hours to get rebooked and have to stay at Zurich overnight and only to find our checked luggage is no where to be seen. First and LAST time we fly Swiss Air!!!"
Pros: "the crew was wonderful, I was surprised that they had a little snack on such a short flight, the plane was clean and very comfortable. I plan to use Swiss Air again."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes. Not once did we hear an apology. They also changed the gate on us last minute and didn’t communicate. We discovered accidentally"
Pros: "Chocolate is a nice touch. Snacks (sandwich) was actually good."
Cons: "Seating upholstery needs to be replaced. Faux leather upholstery has cracks. The seat next to mine kept coming off."
Pros: "They magically appeared with water when I got thirsty and were all great. Veg entree from Hiltl good but a little surprising. Baked apple slices on top of mac & cheese? Sure, why not.? And 2 chocolate bars this flight!"
Cons: "Again could not check in online., or at self-serve kiosk at airport. General complaint to all airlines: You can do better with boarding efficiency."
Cons: "It was a 2 hour 40 minute flight. No entertainment."

Cons: "Changed our seats after check in"
Pros: "The crew took very good care of us with food and drinks"
Cons: "Updates by the captain about the situation were too few, too infrequent."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I ordered a kosher meal and did not get it. The seats are very uncofmfortable. When the one in front puts their seat back it goes almost in to the face of the one behind."
Pros: "Best food and attention that I've had on an airline in 20 years. Really. I was telling a friend today, Swiss Air started with drinks, gave us a Parisian baguette sandwich, gave us a healthy breakfast of yoghurt warm croissant butter jam orange juice, drinks again, and several passengers surrounding me got special attention, one woman with a baby, a disabled person, and a teenager that was 6'5" was relaocated by the flight attendant without him even asking to a bulkhead seat for more comfort. You don't see this kind a attention to detail on any US flights or US airlines, so I noticed it. It was as if I was traveling back in the 70's or 80's when Airlines would compete for our dollars with their service. I mentioned to my friend that if I had a choice and Swiss Air was one of the choices, I'd choose Swiss Air over any other airline."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Food was good"
Cons: "Crew was slow to pick up dishes and trash after meals. Passenger in front of me reclined seat leaving little room for me to watch the video screen or read."
Cons: "No seat entertainment."
Cons: "I ordered in advance 4 seats for my family, paid 100$ to SWISS 19/10/16.Boarding crew refused to give us the seats sold to us.The family was divided into 3 and 1.Only after my strong refusal, the seats were were granted.During the dispute about the provision of already purchased seats, SWISS crew member threatened to call the police. We entered the plane last.Our seats not were ready and we were forced to do it all alone.Rudeness and unprofessionalism of SWISS crew.The end of the vacation was spoiled. For what I paid to SWISS 100$ in advance(10 monthes)? I believe, if SWISS could not provide the paid service as expected, SWISS must return the money(100$) and apologize. Nobody apologized in Zurich, threatened to invite the police. Bad crew, bad service."
Pros: "A snack was actually served on board! With a beer if desired."
Cons: "Change of planes at gate produced some boarding confusion."
Pros: "Comfortable....customer-service oriented staff. Enjoyable food, and entertainment."
Cons: "Only thing that could have been easier is to offer more self check-in options at the airport. Very courteous staff, and wait wasn't extremely long."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive, kind and professional on their ways through the cabin. I appreciated the hot towels near the end of the flight."
Cons: "There were headphones (as well as pillows and blankets, much appreciated), but the jacks for the headphones only fit the SwissAir headphones, so if passengers brought their own headphones, they could only get a mono output. It was difficult to hear the entertainment through only one ear."
Cons: "On ticket it said time between flights was 1hr 25min, but as soon as we got off the plane we had to RUN through Zurich airport, where 1000 other people were all trying to funnel down the single escalator to Passport Control, to get to our gate. Then we had to wait in another Passport Control. TERRIBLE and stressful. The actual flight was fine."
Pros: "+ Crew, professional and polite."
Cons: "- food unevenly cooked - No entertainment - Small toilet"
Pros: "The announcements were to the point and kept us from constantly getting interrupted, very much appreciate this. The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "The overhead bins were packed, some people have to many peaces of luggage. They claim the space of others, no respect."
Cons: "Seat in front of you tilts back and gives you NO room. Horrible!!"
Pros: "Crew is great and took great care of us. Flight was on time and that is always a plus."
Cons: "No entertainment on this plane, which is okay. But even the magazine is pretty lame. Food was ok, although not particularly substantial."
Pros: "Attendants were cordial"
Cons: "There was no organized boarding of coach passengers. There was sufficient food provided but overall quality was marginal."
Pros: "Terrific flight. All on schedule"
Pros: "Went great, no complains"
Cons: "HOT turkey sandwich"
Pros: "EVERYTHING'S Good to come back home"
Pros: "super-friendly crew. efficient flight. great price."
Cons: "those silly Swiss sandwiches. dont taste good and why do they have to be spicy?"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, attentive staff"
Cons: "plane was delayed"
Cons: "Communication was terrible."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and efiicient."
Cons: "Only negative was not related to the flight. I had a difficult time on the website getting checked in ahead of time."
Cons: "The boarding process at Zurich airport was a mess. There was no communication at the gate to tell passengers what to do or where to stand"
Cons: "While waiting for boarding I overheard a young woman, who was traveling with several companions, screaming to her mother on the phone that she and her friends had all gotten bedbugs and were in agony! She was making plans to leave all of her bags in the driveway when she got home. I discretely let boarding staff know and was told there is nothing they can do about it. They also cannot change my flight, or my seat, in the event that I am seated next to the person with the issue. They did give me a bag in which to place my carry on before storing it overhead. But once on the plane, I realized that my checked bag would be thrown in with everyone else's. In addition, I had forgotten to preorder gluten free food. The airline had nothing gluten free to offer me on a prolonged international flight and did not even offer to produce any gluten free snack (peanuts? cheese?) to tide me over. My luggage is still sitting in my car awaiting a process. However, in the unfortunate event that it has come into contact with bedbugs it may be too late :("
Pros: "Excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "The boarding process for the economy class seems a little chaotic since there is no distinctions by zone or seat row. The result is a surge of people right when they announce boarding for that cabin."
Pros: "Crew great"
Cons: "Seats cramped"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and trying their best."
Cons: "The boarding process was quite bad. Apparently their computer system was not working. Waiting, delays. Also, although it was absolutely not necessary they took our carry-on-s with the check-in luggage. Disappointed. First time with Swiss and I though Swiss in general are more organized. But no."
Cons: "not enough food"
Cons: "Luftansa cancelled my flight due to impending hurricane. Because of announced airport closure, I decided to go on August 31 on the only flight available which was Iceland air. I had to pay $4200 for the flight. My flight back to Orlando is on September 9 on Iceland air. How can you compensate me?"
Cons: "reached in time for onward connection but the gate had closed 30 mins before and had to stay overnight in munich Lufthansa did poor job of communicating rebook on same day thr Delhi.By the time we got to see agent in service desk that connection thr Delhi was also not an option.veryfew counters muni"
Pros: "fast boarding"
Pros: "Kayak would not allow me to change the ticket - referred me to FlyUs. Horrible customer service. I needed to return on Sat Jun 15 not Sun Jun 16. Would not give refund (i agreed to that when buying) but would not refund the tax, which i feel legally they have to do."
Cons: "Won't be using FlyUs or Kayak again for future purchases. Will go to the airlines directly. Too much red tape and horrible customer service for me to do this anymore. I fly a lot and have over 20,000 miles with Kayak, but those days are over."
Pros: "Since I was traveling with a child we were borded first"
Cons: "The seats weren’t the most comfortable"
Pros: "Very nice new clean airplane (beautiful), excellent crew"
Cons: "Lufthansa may consider reworking the boarding area"
Cons: "Guy beside me was always sitting to his friends."
Pros: "All except bfast"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly kind and welcoming! And it wasn't a packed flight which made it much more comfortable."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "The food was not good at all. The economy seats are uncomfortable and you should be able to walk around the plane, especially on a 9 plus hour flight."
Pros: "Breakfast & ease of boarding."
Pros: "Lucked out. Flight was quite empty. Travel was comfortable and easy. A smooth ride all along."
Cons: "Need AC outlets and TVs"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "We were a little late with boarding. I prefer Lufthansa for travel, but I can think of a ton more, easy to serve, more healthy and delicious menu items. The food smells good, usually, but it isn't that great. The chicken I had was fine, but the side dish (sweet potatoes) wasn't good. The salad had too much radicchio, the soft cheese was too rubbery to cut (spilled my water doing so), the cake wasn't up to German reputation. Also, one flight attendant, got her own suitcase down, at least 5 times, stretching directly above me, with her jacket in my face and never apologizing. My seat wouldn't recline, nor could other peoples. This is why I paid to choose my seat, so I could sleep, more easily but I sat upright the whole time."
Cons: "The boarding process was not good."
Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Cons: "The flight"
Pros: "boarding area was bit confusing"
Cons: "Hamburg airport not prepared for winter weather. Delayed over 2 hours due to de-icing staff not ready. Airport did not see light snow on radar? Missed connecting flight. Lufthansa put us in hotel 45mins away from airport with no luggage. Switched us to a united flight and not together."
Pros: "I was better prepared"
Pros: "The crew, again, was fabulous. Boarding, once the stuffy wait was over, went quickly. They attended to every request with smiles, gentle humor, and without delay. Nonstop movies were a great help on this second of two long legs, and it was really nice to have control over pausing, replaying portions, and jumping ahead past sex scenes. A 10-sec forward button like the back button would be very useful to skip nudity scenes, there were families around us! The trip was as comfortable as it could be, given close proximity of seats. Appreciated the pillows and blankets, and frequent water and drinks."
Cons: "Boarding was pretty terrible - no instructions, go left, give up the water bottle we JUST BOUGHT even though it was still unopened (it had to be "sealed", still no idea what that means because the seal wasn't broken), and the waiting room was very stuffy! Seemed we should have been able to get air...? Boarding went quickly, though, thankfully. Breakfast was pretty bad, one of us just skipped it once opened because it was so unappetizing. Would have liked movie ratings to appear in the descriptions to save the risk of getting started on lame shows."
Pros: "I have never flown with Lufthansa, but now, I will fly with them any chance I get. The crew were amazing. Friendly and attentive. For airplane food, it was very good and tasty. Received headphones, a pillow and a blanket for the flight. Legroom was good, but probably cramped for people over 6'0" tall. 24 hour online check-in was smooth an trouble free. I like having the boarding pass on my phone. No paper to carry around."
Pros: "comfort ,crew was polite and catering delicious"
Cons: "Incredibly racist crew and pilot, who did not help us after a fellow passenger touched and molested my girlfriend on board the aircraft. The groundstaff were as rude and unhelpful. I am neither gonna book any flights on Lufthansa ever and will avoid Kayak as well."
Pros: "They waited for those who were running late due to a previous flight delay. The crew was super friendly and there was great movie suggestions."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulance which made a lot of the passengers sick. I think also that they collected the headphones too early like 45 mins/1 hour too early before landing. Also landing felt like it was the longest landing in my life."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad"
Cons: "The fine print on the flight pass-- didn't notice that my request for flight change did not go through. Am stuck in the airport!"
Cons: "The whole trip was a nightmare. I go out of my way to NOT fly United, In this case Lufthansa somehow just sold the ticket and United was flying it and as usual it was horrendous. We had to be re-routed via 3 separate flights jus to make our international connection thanks to our initial flight being moved up 2 hours EARLY. They closed the door in our faces. That added 8 hours of travel time to our trip which I had booked to minimize travel time as I was traveling with pets. United is the WORST."
Pros: "Everything was pretty good. Except for the seats."
Cons: "On the long haul flight the seats started to hurt after a few hours. The seats on the short haul flight felt more comfortable."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive. Our flight was delayed twice, once in Frankfurt for late luggage and the ground crew left without pushing back the plane, then again in Seattle for a plane on the tarmac on fire. A 10 hour flight turned into 14 hours but I still enjoyed it. There was plenty of leg room and the seats were very comfortable. The entertainment was very enjoyable and the meals were satisfying. For such a long haul Lufthansa made the time flyby."
Cons: "The crying baby a couple rows back. Also some smelly passengers that have poor hygiene."
Cons: "I fly Lufthansa several times each year. This flight was the worst I can recall. My husband and I purchased exit row seats for additional leg room only to discover that an additional row was added in front of us for people with babies. We were squished behind them with very little leg room. We were surrounded by several babies, all of them crying constantly; this was totally ignored by both the parents and the crew. I was ready to start crying loudly myself, wondering if anyone would pay attention to that. We ordered special meals online but were served regular ones. When I told the attendant that we should be getting special meals, he peevishly and defensively said "you should have told me". These meals are normally served without any special prompts, so I have no idea why he was so angry with me! The crew practically hid from all the crying babies and was avoiding our section of the plane for around six hours. No water served, no one checking on anything. Lastly, my suitcase was cracked and needs to be discarded. altogether: a horror."
Pros: "This flight was handled professionally and things went very smoothly. I don't have any complaints."
Pros: "Our flight from Frankfort to Munich was late. Luftansa sent a representative to our flight to make sure we and others from our flight got on to the flight to Charlotte. How awesome! Plane needs more leg room."
Pros: "Nice crew, made an effort to find a special meal that was ordered for the original connecting flight and was not transferred to the alternate flight since I boarded on standby."
Cons: "Had to sit on a window seat since due to a delayed previous flight I missed my connection and boarded on standby. I have long legs and it was extremely uncomfortable and painful to sit there."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Lufthansa seems to have friendlier more helpful customer service than does Webjet's customer service."
Cons: "Webjet customer service didn't seem very friendly or concerned about helping to request fees waived from themselves and Lufthansa."
Pros: "Everything worked like an expensive Swiss watch! Employees were polite, friendly, and very helpful! I will fly with Lufthansa again and again!!!"
Pros: "Punctual departure and arrival. Crew was professional if not always friendly."
Cons: "The worst food I can recall I have ever experienced on a plane. So bad that I didn't have more than an unfortunate bite from my "dinner" entree. The food was especially noteworthy as the trip over was so good... In the entertainment category, the sports and news line-up only had old soccer games..."
Pros: "if i had booked that flight the overall experience would have been great. on time, good service, comfortable seats, good food and great entertainment."
Cons: "i booked a different flight, so we ended up adding significant travel time and cost to this trip which made the overall experience somewhat frustrating. — airlines also need to get better at keeping families seated close to each other if the kids are small. it adds to the overall travel anxiety and gets everyone in a bad mood."
Pros: "Nicely appointed plane, nice staff...even though we didn't order a special meal the flight attendant found something for my allergic son at the end... Hot wet towels, a nice touch."
Cons: "Although dismal, running out of dinner choices before half way into serving...And given the prevalence of dairy allergies one choice should be dairy free without compromising quality or taste - why does the chicken dish has to have dairy products? Quality of food overall was so so."
Pros: "Entertainment, comfort"
Cons: "Food was not good. Too salty."
Pros: "The crew was SUPER NICE! Great smiles , really attentive- not fakes! What a great experience! Food and refreshments were good and plenty. Wide choice of Entertainment. Clean plane. When the industry quality of services has taken a dive so badly, one really appreciates the experience with Lufthansa who delivers. Thank you!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room in Economy. God reason to fly other airline"
Pros: "Your services and email updates were some of the best in the business."
Cons: "Your website is the least friendly we have EVER encountered."
Cons: "Our plane've got hit at the wheels when we were boarding the airplane. We couldn't take off until it was inspected, which I liked, but it made us about 40 minutes late to Budapest. When the airplane took off from Munich, one of the over head bin opened up which was full of carry-ons just above a family with two little kids. Everybody got scared that something will be flying out of there. I understand that no one should leave their seat to close it, but it was extremely dangerous for it to stay open, and because no flight attendant came to close it two of the passengers had to got up."
Pros: "Decent movie selection and a lot of food for economy class."
Cons: "The some flight attendants were very rude when my son who is 18 months wanted to walk the aisles. They even told me to take my seat when they were sitting themselves to eat, but we were not being noisy or bothering them. They would rather have the child sit in the seat and scream and cry, then be happier walking around mid-flight. Not much sympathy."
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "Seat back entertainment? What a joke! It was like watching a movie on a Motorola Razr (or my old Ericsson flip phone). Surly old battle axe sky waitresses. 90s vintage plane interiors. Need I go on?"
Pros: "No complaints."
Pros: "The seat was not as cramped as the Greenland Airways flight preceeding this."
Cons: "Not having additional fees for baggage. Please disclose that as part of the ticketing."
Cons: "Can’t believe SAS charges for 1 piece of luggage Never experienced in all the years I’ve travelled internationally Also couldn’t accept UScredit card to buy a drink- yes you had to buy an alcoholic beverage on the flight to Europe Better to upgrade your ticket so you can check a bag and use lounge"
Pros: "the diverse amount of films"
Cons: "the food could have been better."
Cons: "The plan was old and dirty, old magazines and gum wrappers in my seat, stained carpet.The ride was quite bumpy."
Cons: "We paid for meals that were NOT delivered"
Cons: "Its simple. Turns out i had to pay 360 dollars for my baggages which was hever specified in the time i was purchasing tickets cause they said im flying without and i can come back with. Who is flying without baggage intercontinental for 1 month? And 3 baggages didnt arrived. Thanks"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "There was three hour delay Boarding was chaotic and very bad organizedMain course was good, but poor snack Entertainment program very poor"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "SAS like other airlines gives you a chance to bid on a nicer seat. If the offer is accepted, your card is charged the amount you bid and you are upgraded. If your offer is not accepted, you keep your seat and are not charged for bidding. I placed a bid for a nicer seat and was informed the day before the flight that my bid was rejected. But when the plane was boarding, I went to the man at the desk and asked if the plane was full. He informed me that it was not, and that I could pay roughly $300 for economy plus, or $1000 for business class. Online, I was ALLOWED to bid $200 for the economy plus seat. If they are going to reject this offer and then have the seat fly empty, they are a bunch of dicks. They had a chance for me to be a happier customer and to make more money. Now they lost both. What was also terrible is that when I family with an infant was moved up a few seats, I suggested to the lady next to me who wanted the newly vacant aisle seat that she ask the flight attendant for it. The flight attendant said it was fine. As the lady sitting next to me went to her her new seat, and old man from a few rows up took it. Another flight attendant had promised it to him. So, now the two of us are crammed, she's pissed that the seat she said she could have she couldn't, and I'm there like "My god, they wouldn't even take my money to let me have a nicer, EMPTY, seat." Poor communication, poorly run. Try another airline."
Pros: "Crew Flight delayed. Said 30. Actual 1 hour"
Cons: "Kayak sold me a one way usd 500 ticket and did not give me the option to add the luggage. Had to pay 60 eur in the airport. Is probably better to buy in the airline directly"
Pros: "This airline is punctual and the pilots are good."
Cons: "The service is minimal, you pay for any alcohol and the food is nothing to write home about."
Pros: "The crew was great and the economy seating was roomier than expected."
Cons: "Long line just to drop bag off since I had already used the kiosk to check in, then 2 1/2 hour flight delay, charged for wine which should be complimentary on international flights."
Pros: "Overall a nice comfortable flight, no problem at all with the flight itself. Staff at check- in and on board were polite and efficient."
Cons: "70€ seems a little steep for luggage, but we were able to rearrange our liquids."
Cons: "SAS has introduced hand luggage measurement and weighing at checkin, for a maximum of 17.5 lbs or 8 kg. SAS does not care if you have flown on another transatlantic carrier, which allows more than 8 kg. Then you need to start emptying your hand luggage at checkin. The whole checkin process was a big mess, the contract employees eg. at Heathrow do not help much (they probably do not do this to any other airline). SAS staff does not remind you to take your IDs and passport, medications etc. from your hand luggage, which is then checkedin luggage as opposed to hand luggage. It is obvious that transatlantic passengers have more hand luggage than many local passengers."
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: "Great flight, friendly crew, good food, entertainment was ok"
Cons: "Cramped with no storage, ticket was stand-by took some time to convert to boarding pass and get seating to enter the plane as one of the last people,"
Pros: "Flight was unremarkable in every good way. Food was above expectations and the crew was exceptional."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "I liked the high-tech adjustment on the seats but i am 6ft2, 200 lbs (in good shape) and I have Parkinson's disease. The seat was just not roomy enough and I had to get up at least once an hour."
Cons: "The crew was very understanding and kind. The aft head was very limited in space too. A little more room would have been most welcome."
Pros: "Top notch service , catered very much to Americans . Would definitely fly again"
Pros: "On schedule,great crew"
Cons: "Wound up having to pay 150$ for checking 2 bags. Almost more than the tickets. Feel ripped off. Don't remember the web getting a chance when i ordered the tickets to purchase at a lower rate. SAS said, since i bought the tickets through a travel agent, there was nothing they could do. Next time I'll buy tickets directly from SAS."
Cons: "Service was poor and seats were uncomfortable. There were only 4 flight attendants for the entire flight. It took over an hour for our food to be served after we received our drinks. The food was not good at all. The movie options were not the best either. Also, it was so hot during the entire flight especially once we landed and taxied for 30 minutes. I flew SAS to Europe and really enjoyed my flight but this experience makes me never want to fly SAS again!"
Cons: "Should at least serve some water"
Pros: "I have no complaints. Will recommend SAS to all my friend. Thank you."
Cons: "I do not like the way they conduct their business from the office never returning phone calls as we are trying to get our questions answered. Would also be nice if the airline would use JFK instead of Liberty in Newark. Thank you."
Pros: "Just everything. On time, good service, relaxing flight. What else...?"
Cons: "When I checked in I was told I had no bag allowance and had to pay 70 euro to check my bag. I feel like this was very sketchy on kyaak's part since it must have been on the fine print. I will be more cautious next time. Sas was otherwise fine."
Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "To be boarded and wait for more than 45 minutes inside the plane for a second pilot."
Pros: "After four hours waiting on the tarmac, at 3AM in the morning, the flying attendants gave us free peanuts. That was very thoughtful."
Cons: "Worst experience ever. We waited on the tarmac for almost 4 hours, due a technical problem. Finally, they gave up attempting to solve the problem (at 3.30AM), and we disembarked. No assistance at all. No hotel. No meals. Rescheduling was a lengthy process. Staff was rude. Really a nightmare of an experience. Note to self: never ever fly again with SAS."
Cons: "Missed connection was re-routed by United directly to FRA"
Pros: "I got to my destination all in one piece which is what really matters most."
Cons: "The crew was completely rude. They banged my knee with the food cart and didn't even apologize. The seats are so tight and the people in front of me had their seat in the reclining position the entire flight."
Cons: "Bag drop line was over 45 min. Only 2 attendants. Flight was late taking off. Baggage fee was outrageous. Site said 1 free bag, but that is carry on only. Checked bag was €70!!!! The flight was only $85."
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: "Smooth Flight and on time with a bit of Aurora (night flight to Tromso)"
Cons: "Voucher does not show details of check-in baggage limitations (limited to 20 KG.) and has to use Oslo airport self check-in which is quite confusing for inter-continental traveller.."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Charge for drinks. TV broken no recompensatuon"
Pros: "The overall experience was good. The fights in there selves were cool."
Cons: "When I got to Oslo to connect to my other flight I had to do security again and the boarding was already starting. So I had to run like hell and got there on the nik of time."
Pros: "Flight itself was OK"
Cons: "It was very difficult to understand from the reservation or the website if I need to pay extra for a checked baggage. My emails weren't answered, and when I finally realized that I did have to pay - it was 85$ for one suitcase!!!!! SAS - are you out of your mind?! The suitcase cost more than the flying ticket! Sorry, but no SAS for me anymore. BAD BAD service and exploiting of customer's naivety. I'm furious."
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "Very hot, small seats"
Cons: "I lost my luggage!!!"

Pros: "Efficiency, confidence, promptness"
Cons: "The meals were mediocre and should be up to the standard of the rest of SAS service. The selection of movies could have been wider. They do help pass the time."

Cons: "It was cancelled!"
