First time traveling after COVID- Swiss air exceeded my expectations. What a wonderful experience. Looking forward to flying Swiss air very soon. Gilda Osorio
mask obligation would helpful. flight felt particularly unsafe.
You closed the gates a half hour early and denied boarding to more than 50 people. The only reason we were there with only a half hour to spare was that the connecting flight we were in, also operated by you, was an hour and a half late. We then waited for four hours at the service desk. All agents were completely unsympathetic and most returning flights have been over booked. We've been at the airport 24 hours already and aren't sure if we can make it home on the flight we have been rebooked on. This is the WORST experience I have ever had traveling.
Flight from Copenhagen was late, we didn’t make our connection in Zurich . airline new 3 hours ahead about our late arrival and did nothing. We stood in the line for 6 hours in Zurich to rebook a flight, until we were told that no more hotels available and no flights could be rebooked until morning. We stayed in the airport by the transferring desk and still are waiting for our rebooking it’s 5:00 am now.

Pros: "The crew were outstanding. They fulfil my needs when I need it and they were very polite and professional. Smooth boarding and flight."
Cons: "This flight was poorly advertised as Economy Light. I had to pay $500 in baggage fees to being one checked ski bag round trip - more than the cost of my entire fare!"
Pros: "Smooth ride, most of the crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "Some crew not so friendly. I was surprised we received dinner immediately but nothing again until breakfast box upon landing. It would’ve been nice to have a snack in between"
Cons: "Old plane, rude crew"
Pros: "Nothing stood out"
Cons: "Nothing Stood out"
Cons: "Our flight to Zurich was canceled and we had to take 3 flights to get to San Diego instead of 2. It was a huge headache. None of our flights were even with Swiss."

Pros: "Service was excelent puntualiti was excelente thank you very much"
Pros: "It was nice because plane was half empty so had quicker attention from stewards - everything was good."
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: "lovely flight -left on time arrived 1 hr early. my earphones did not fit plane plug, the one provided did not fit my ears - slept instead,,,Excellent service..."
Pros: "We liked the chocolates, the little things matter. We liked the timing of the flight."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable and the arm rests did not go all the way up."
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: "1stly the lady at the check in was not nice [ i should have gotten her name -] she was rude and quite 'authoritarian' which is uncalled for- when you have paid an expensive ticket are just trying to check in. then I checked an extra bag - and could not pay where i checked in. i had to go to another counter to pay - there was a line and it took a good few extra minutes - and i still had to get thru security. if you can pay at the check in counter this would avoid this extra step. i was really not happy about it swiss air needs better efficiency and better customer service"
Pros: "The staff was helpful and professional and kind. The equipment was new and clean. The flight was on-time and uneventful. I would fly this airline again any day of the week."
Cons: "The entertainment screen was difficult to see when the person in front of me reclined because the screen was not perpendicular to my line of vision. I survived based on the other qualities of the flight."
Pros: "I liked the comfort of the aircraft and entertainment"
Cons: "That there was a delay which wasnt announced which meant i had to get through an new airport in a hurry for me to get connecting dublin flight. When i got to boarding gate everyone was boarding found this extetemly pressuring"
Pros: "Flight was not full and I was able to have several seats to spread out"
Pros: "Crew is very friendly Drinks quality is acceptable Comfortable airplane seats"

Pros: "Nice flight attendants. Clean planes."
Cons: "Seat pitch too small-no room. Food was not good. Outdated entertainment movies"
Pros: "Friendly crew members who kept serving food and drinks before asking. Meals, snack, drinks, hot towel, and cookies! The plane was also very clean and apacious enough."
Pros: "A very short flight."
Cons: "The flight crew was horrible. The desk crew inept. A wheelchair was requested but not there on checkin. Pre boarding did not happen as was supposed to. Older person male at desk was rude, insulting and sarcastic. This did not happen on Boston end. The person was there with wheelchair at the Boston gate and assisted us. Not in Zurich. What about handicap travel? Swiss????"
Pros: "I appreciated the big meal, dinner, about 2 hours into the flight. Nice to have real metal utensils, not plasticware, to eat with. The 'breakfast' for the overnight flight was more of a throwaway: muffin, granola bar, fresh fruit cup. Nice to get wine, or maybe beer(?), with dinner at no extra charge, served from regular wine bottles, not individual-serving containers."
Cons: "$35 per flight leg (Lufthansa policy) to choose seats was distinctly annoying. I didn't know when I booked the flights, so the surprise $70 add-in (for round trip definitely would have figured into the price/schedule choice in the first place."
Cons: "At the check-in gate there was pandemonium. It was not clear how to proceed. The lines were long and disorderly. Since I had passed through passport control, I didn't think I would need to go through again just before boarding. I was in line, ready to have my boarding pass scanned when I was told I needed to have my passport checked! I had to step out of line, go back and get my passport checked, then go back in line to board! I could not get an assigned seat until I got to Zurich. I needed an aisle seat (I had a bladder infection and would need to use the toilet often). It was left up to me to negotiate with my neighbor to switch seats--- the crew would not help at all. I was cramped in my seat. The man in front of me put his chair too far back; I was difficult to work on my laptop with so little room between me and the table. The snack was horrible---uncooked, tasteless calzone and ice cream."
Pros: "I got business class upgrade, so everything was pretty much awesome. Also, Swiss Air gives you a fun little bag as a souvenir."
Cons: "Very bad service, staff was not polite or helpful"
Pros: "On every flight I have ever been on, if I request it I can get a whole water bottle vs. the small cups offered...however on this flight they refused saying 'it is against the rules"?? As a result I had to bother the flight crew over 10 times to refill my small glass...a huge inconvenience for both of us. The other inconvenience (one I have not experienced in over 5-6 years) was the the headphone jacks were the old fashioned kind...meaning you could not use your own, and the buds given by the airline were very uncomfortable."
Couldn’t make this flight so air cNada cancelled the 13 hour portion of my WHOLE TRIP DO NOT BOOK WITH THEM EVER we were in a car accident on our way to the airport and couldn’t make the 50 min flight from Thessaloniki to Vienna SO AIR CANADA CANCELLED OUR FLIGHT HOME WE TRIED CALLING THEM FOR HOURS AND KEPT HANGING UP ON US WE WERE STRANDED IN GREECE ALMOST 24 hours NOT HAPPY THE AIRPORT IS A DISASTER NO STAFF THAT SPEAK ENGLISH OR KNOW WHERE ANYTHING IS WORST EXPERIENCE OF OUR LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No food on international flight. You get a small pita bread and in it a small portion of scrambled egg if you fly morning or a small cheese toast if it’s dinner time.
Seats way too small for a long flight .... food, just ok ... boarding somewhat disorganised.
I had a small back pack and a small suitcase. The boarding staff were extremely rude and wouldn’t let me take both on board. Only one small bag on board even though there was tons of space and I paid for premium seat. Also—they want you to wear their mask—even though I had n95. Will definitely avoid this airline in the future
Check in of luggage the day before
Cons: "very rude and extremely racist group. I will not fly them again."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly, food was great and entertainment on board was a great selection."

Cons: "Smoother boarding. Was great once on board."
Pros: "Space, happy vibes, clean"
Cons: "Nothing it was super"
Pros: "On time, best connection for me, earning miles on my program. I booked based on time and cost, didn't even pay attention to what airline."
Cons: "No food, plane felt pretty old and not so clean. Smaller seats than the other flights I had with Lufthansa. Otherwise, it was fine. I had a pretty bad earache on that particular flight, so I liked it less than I might have otherwise. Something didn't feel right, pressure wrong or something."
Pros: "Clean, safe short flights"
Cons: "The 30 minute layover was close"
Cons: "Transfer in Frankfurt was impossible on time. Had to rebook later flight"
Pros: "The seats were very nice, and I found it very pleasing that everything was colour coordinated. (the small details in red and the rest in gray). The flight attendants were so happy and upbeat, it lifted your mood as well! I believe that we left a few minutes early, as boarding was completed early. And thefood? Mind-blowing for airplane food. I really enjoyed this flight."
Cons: "There wasn’t much I didn’t like about the flight. Sometimes the announcements were very slightly difficult to hear (accents and whatnot,) but you could still tell what they were saying."
Pros: "Everything was awesome best flight i had in my life."
Pros: "food was great. Slightly cold in cabin."
Cons: "had a narrow connecting flight VIE to MUC, VIE flight was delayed and had to catch MUC to IAD flight in less than 15 min. One luggage was missing at baggage claim, but as DC/ Baltimore is home, luggage arrived in 48 hrs. All is well that ends well."
Pros: "Crew were polite and accommodating."
Cons: "Plane temperature was too hot, despite my repeated requests to the crew to lower the temp. No one on this flight opened a single blanket - was that the goal? It was too hot to even sleep."
Pros: "Safe trip"
Cons: "There were a large group of very smelly passengers that came in at the end portion of boarding. The AC counldnt handle it and the crew didn’t use any spray to save the rest of us suffocating passengers. Thank goodness the flight was short."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s/Austrian Airlines’s idea of a ‘snack’ is a pathetic little bag of sugar and chemicals that no one should have to be offered, even if it comes for free. Hugely disappointed. Flight attendants not attentive enough, and it took forever for the flight attendant to come after I’ve pressed the call button. Overall impression: meh! First time flying Austrian, but next time I’ll probably book with their competitors if prices are similar."
Pros: "next leg of journey- was delayed three hours and NO one was able to reschedule flights"
Cons: "That flight was delayed for three hours! Causing me not to be able to make connecting flight. No help in Vienna."
Pros: "I like everithing was great . Thank you ."

Pros: "proff handeling of sick person !Othervise quiet and nise trawel!"
Cons: "The gate of flight was changed 2 times in short period, that's why i lost my plane. No possibility if rebooking the flight, only buying a new ticket for 700€. Crazy!"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Everything was great except seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "My waffle and coffee"
Cons: "Very small seats with hardly any legroom. Flight delayed 2 hours. Nasty attendant told me my bag was too big for overhead compartment. It wasn't."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and the flight was pleasant."
Pros: "Staff was very kind. I'm not a needy person, but they offered continuous service."
Cons: "This is for Kayak's app- Usually I get a special meal request through the agent, but could not do it on Kayak's app, and Lufthansa and Austrian did not recognize my booking code from the ticket purchase confirmation email to do it on their website directly. Please look into both issues. This is for my whole trip and not the above mentioned destination."
Cons: "5 hour delay. One staff member said there would be a delay, the second said there was no delay and after a couple hours the delay was confirmed. I was told the flight was full without the attendant even checking, flight was actually not even close to full. Nobody wanted to help and do their job, they just want to send you on your way."
Pros: "The Crew was perfekt The Wheelchaire Service was also perfekt Food tasted good"
Cons: "The only trouble was 1:15 h delay ,but this depended on the weathersituation how I believe!"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and quick"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable."
Lied saying it had already left when I could see the plane. And they were delayed.
Cons: "Even though it is a short flight, it would be nice to receive at least drinks offered"
Pros: "Great staff , amazing dinner, and the entertainment screen size was best"
Cons: "Seats could be a little bigger"
Pros: "I enjoying having an aisle seat plus two empty seats next to me. I appreciated that you are conserving plastic cups. Keep up the conservation!"

Pros: "The crew was the best"
Pros: "Everything was really good. Crew was helpful and provided excellent customer service. Food provided was good."

Cons: "Perdieron nuestras maletas, de prácticamente todos los pasajeros."
Cons: "The in-flight snack - choice of two disappointing sandwiches."
Pros: "The bus was one of the most comfortable international flights I have ever been on."
Cons: "Somehow, our luggage never made it to Rome, despite a nearly four hour layover in Munich. Disappointing."
Cons: "Didn't make the flight"
Pros: "Good service for the price"
Cons: "More legroom"
Cons: "Flight was canceled from Newark to Monachium then coming back plane from Krakow was late and I had to spend night in Monacoum . I arrived to Newark on Tuesday instead of Monday horrible trip all together ☹️"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was diverse."
Cons: "Seats in economy were too cramped."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment from music to podcasts to movies and tv. Food was good!"
Cons: "The flight was quite cold! More teas and coffee instead of cold drinks. Couldn’t tell if there was WiFi or not :/"
Pros: "I like my trip - good service, good food (vine, whiskey :-) )"

Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "Ended up flying with air canada after they switched us"
Cons: "Lufthansa switched us three times , and then when we got to the airport in toronto it was air Canada. They found our grandparents tickets but not ours. Ridicule our flight was supposed to be only 1h layover, inatead it’s 6 and we are going to miss all our next travel accommodations."
Pros: "The efficiency and kindness of the flight attendants made the trip enjoyable. The water service really helped with dehydration. Also, the food was EXCELLENT, which you don't often hear on a flight. My seat was comfortable and the movie and television selections was great. Will ABSOLUTELY fly with them again!"
Pros: "The staff was communicative and genuine. The food was decent. Even though the flight arrived late I felt ok about it due to the direct communication of details about the situation. I was stuck in the extremely cramped space of seats just in front of the lavatory making the seat in front me 5 inches from my nose when reclined but the staff was sympathetic offering to ask the passenger in front of me to redress their seat more upright and also allowing me to spread out across two seats to compensate."
Cons: "While the staff compensated for the more than standardly cramped seating arrangement, I think the row of seats just in front of the lavatories should be either better designed or designated not usable. I am only 5’3” and 125lbs but still was faced with a mere 5 inches in front of me when the passenger in front of me reclined his seat. I couldn’t even stand in order to exit the row and had to crawl over the seats to my side. This had me thinking how dangerous this row could be in case of an emergency. Please consider designating these seats either not to be used or optional for passengers."
Pros: "Food was good. Flight attendants were good."
Cons: "Luggage didn’t make it to my final destination . The fact my luggage was lost might have made my reviews of other areas more harsh than actuality"
Pros: "Everything on the flight was very efficient and organized—the boarding process, the excellent and pleasant service, the food, and the entertainment selections. Thank you for making a long flight enjoyable."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, good wine, good entertainment (which I actually don't watch), beautiful airplane, A 340, especially the downstairs restrooms."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, minimal leg room, mediocre food."
Pros: "The bathroom downstairs"
Cons: "Late arrival inMunich, rush to connection and my luggage didn’t make it"
Pros: "Service, food, and entertainment was great!"
Pros: "Everything was good! I didn’t have any problems with that flight!!!"
Pros: "Pleasant efficient crew and although we had a late departure the pilot made up the time and we did not miss our connection"
Pros: "The service by the flight attendants was very good starting from the welcome to the end in spite of the fact that it was quite late night flight. Also by fortunate luck I had the chance to sleep as the next three seats to me were all empty in the middle block, which made the whole trip less exhaustive."
Cons: "If the seats next to me weren't empty and I couldn't lay down across all of them it would have been a difficult flight as the economy seats are not even close with economy comfort levels of other international airlines like Turkish Airlines especially the seat pitch size. Entertainment choices could be improved by more recent movies. There were very few selection."
Pros: "The staff was helpful and courteous"
Pros: "Staff was very attentive and friendly. Great service and staff always had a smile on their faces."
Pros: "On board crew was outstanding"
Cons: "The quality of food was substandard"
Pros: "Our stewardess from Toronto to Germany was the best that I have ever had."
Cons: "Great trip."
Pros: "Gate and flight crew were polite and attentive. As I could not check in online, I asked for an aisle seat at gate and crew did all they could to provide one. The flight was easy. Everyone in the flight crew offered their assistance before I asked and they did with a smile. Seat was comfortable and I didn't ask for upgrade. I paid for extra room on outbound flight only to sit in the most cramped seat ever. And on this flight I didn't bother paying for extra room and was pleasantly surprised I wasn't sardined. Very nice Lufthansa! The pilot made minimal interruptions and said only important stuff. No unnecessary pleasantries. Thank you!"
Pros: "Brand new plane, pleasant attentive staff. Delayed leaving but most of time made up. Since plane was new everything was clean and worked well *including audio, good movie selection too."
Cons: "Flight got canceled, everything was slow."
Pros: "Bathrooms were clean, seats comfortable, staff helpful"
Cons: "Food was mediocre. An upcharge for a better meal would have been appreciated. Flight from Greece delayed, but again, staff was helpful."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Pros: "The airline staff for Lufthansa were kind, courteous, and respectful! As mentioned, haven't flown in 30 years, let alone, never overseas, and I couldn't have had a better experience; especially being in economy seating! Would fly with Lufthansa again in a second, and recommended them to friends on Facebook!!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "I had a very short (perfect timing) stopover on my way to Bucharest."
Cons: "Dirty plane, apparently not cleaned from the previous flight, since there were crumbs everywhere on the floor.... Unfriendly crew, non accommodating, not helpful, or not even following on questions/ requests from passengers. I don't expect a luxurious meal for an economy class ticket, but the food could have been better ( and it is - with other airlines). Some fresher bread - and more eatable - would have been very good. The movie selection was poor - only old, badly rated movies. I know it can be way better than this - with other airlines. Overall I was unpleasantly surprised - very surprised."
Pros: "Crew worked hard to make the journey pleasant, including the second crew for my connection to New York JFK, a much longer flight. Even some of the food was edible."
Pros: "Food, very well organized crew"
Cons: "No leg room, long flight"
Pros: "The wifi entertainment option is a bad idea. It consumes device battery and there is no USB plug."
Pros: "Champagne in economy class plus food on a 2.5 hr flight! I am a fan of LH."
Pros: "Entertainment, comfort"
Cons: "Food was not good. Too salty."
Cons: "The most unpleasant flight attendants we have ever had in our flying lives. Rude, condescending, treating passengers as if we are not human. Lufthansa should carefully examine their training."
Pros: "I really appreciated the hostesses bringing around glasses of juice or water especially during the night . The selection of movies to watch was excellent. I liked a lot that the restroom was on a different floor and there was plenty of space outside. Thank you."
Cons: "The egg omelette for breakfast was not really tasty. The steward collected the earphones before we landed, a bit too early. I could have watched my movie 10 minutes longer."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. I did not want to eat the food and the crew offered me fruit. Great A/V options."
Pros: "Service and food were excellent."
Cons: "Every seat had headphones, but the plug didn't fit the available jack. If we hadn't brought our own earbuds it would have been 9 hours of silence."
There was a delay - weather + French strike. Pilot was helpful/informative, flight crew was nice but simply talking loudly in galley and not communicating at all. No preflight water or drink even though delayed.
24 hour delay due to a crew member arriving 1.5 h late. People clapped for this? Obscene. Will never fly delta again. A simple error could have been resolved by holding connecting flights for 15 minutes. But no, not enough passengers to cross the 8-10 person threshold. Lost $800 due to this malfeasance. Never flying delta again.
New 737 and seats too confining
Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good
Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."
Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Staff: from check in to landing, they could at least smile. Baggage claim was a nightmare, 6 Schengen flights in the same belt."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"
Pros: "Service and crew amazing friendly and went out of the way to Make u feel special even the pilots gave updates thru out the flight"

Pros: "Crew's hospitality, good music, good destination material, terminal info, good system overall"
Cons: "Less legroom, storage space, bad food, few movie options."
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Cons: "Services was pretty weird .. Perse or crew Leader was ok But the assistent Young one was Really bad.. aptitud and not friendly at all."
Pros: "Everything was great! Crew incredible. They acknowledged my wife’s birthday and made her feel special. Food was ultra salubrious. Loved the big screen monitor."
Cons: "No complaints about anything."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"
Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"
Cons: "2 hours on the tarmac delayed with no explanation. Uncomfortable seats, no leg room. Poor management of seating, there was enough empty seats to have groups together but they were split up. Drinks served from a communal bottle in a polystyrene cup."
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Cons: "They stole my money"
Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."
Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."
Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."
Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"
Pros: "No entertainment or food needed on a half hour flight. Otherwise excellent."
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "Much more civilised for the same cost (or less) as the budget carriers. Proper food and drinks included as is the norm with international flights even though it's a very short haul."
Cons: "The stinky guy behind me, but that's not the airline's fault."
Pros: "Service of the staff was great"
Cons: "Turbulence, with all our technology we still cannot avoid this?"
Cons: "I wasn't sitting next to my partner and we sat on the Tarmac for 45 minutes after the flight was already delayed by 30 minutes."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew professional, food and drinks good and kept coming. I learnt Dutch on the in-flight entertainment system. I was in a good mood talking to another passenger about his new luggage system. This mood was kept and not taken away on the flight."
Cons: "Would be nice if there was wifi on board"
Pros: "Flight was overbooked. After paying 1.7k, they put me to another flight which took me 7 hours more to arrive SFO."
Pros: "attentive on the plane"
Cons: "the checking in took very long not enough staff for the amount of people."
Cons: "Lost lugage not yet delibered"
We paid for business class, our boarding pass said business class. There was no business class and the male diligent attendant was exceedingly rude.
Pros: "I liked the service and the food"
Cons: "The lack of movie choices"
Pros: "Smooth flight from Copenhagen to Berlin - uneventful which is good. They even offered free coffee and tea."
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."
Pros: "Economy Plus is great (I’m 6’10”) & had plenty of legroom! Good food, great service, nice entertainment package and got to stay in SAS lounge until boarding!"
Cons: "They need to serve drinks with ice! US passengers need ice in their drinks!"
Cons: "The food especially the second meal or snack."
Pros: "Food was the best airline food!"
Cons: "We paid for meals that were NOT delivered"
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "Free food for everyone since it was delayed"
Pros: "- Good entertainment - Boarding on time"
Cons: "- Airplane food - I know it's not going to be mind-blowing, but the breakfast was salad and a fruit cup which, for a vegetarian meal, is particularly unappetizing"
Pros: "The crew was truly kind and accommodating."
Cons: "The food wasn’t very good. I purchased the WiFi and it was TERRIBLE. I had work projects I was hoping to complete on the trip and I could barely get anything to load beyond email. Total waste of money and effort."
Pros: "Good value for money. Just about on time, 8 minutes late only. Boarding was very fast. Coffee serves for free."
Cons: "Obviously, no food or water in Economy."
Pros: "Business class lounge excellent. People who helped with the wheelchair were excellent."
Cons: "In a wheelchair. Check in was terrible and rude. The fact that SAS did not allow us to bring my electric chair directly to the gate was absurd (only airline in the world that did that). The fact that it was not at the gate when we arrived in Newark surprised even the SAS Gate agents. Had to go to baggage and collect it in oversize baggage. Will not fly SAS again until that policy has changed."
Pros: "The movie and tv selection were fantastic. Crew was kind and helpful. Chairs were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "It was so cold on the plane with most people including grown men with blankets wrapped up to their neck! I understand the crew moves a lot so want it cold but maybe there’s a happy medium? The cold snack sandwich with cheese and spread of some sort was awful. The main meal was better but not as good as some others I’ve had."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "The cabin crew was detached, and curt."
Cons: "No food or even water"
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: "I slept the whole way through"
Pros: "We traveled with our 11 month old and the crew was super helpful. It was an 8.5hr flight, we got a middle seat to give him space to play and the staff had a lot of fun engaging with him. They even gave him a couple of toys to play with. Food was just ok, but better than most airline meals I've had. We flew Premium Economy which was a comfortable experience as well."
Cons: "Checking in took too long, but that's more due to the new US-bound flight restrictions and process that's supporting that."
Cons: "Expensive rates on luggage"
Pros: "On time, clean aircraft not too full!"
Cons: "Boarding was a little rough as the announcements in groups to board was not clear and lots of people got in line that should not have. - causing delays and frustrations. Handled poorly by gate team"
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."
Pros: "Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Only one meal option ( with meat). Alcoholic beverage not included."
Pros: "Because of bad weather at the Faroe Islands, the aircraft made a missed approach (go-around) on the first attempt to land. The weather had improved sufficiently to make it in on the second attempt. The pilot and the cabin crew were excellent in keeping everyone informed, and telling us the status of the weather and the likelihood of getting in. The pilot was outstanding in his communication with the passengers and the cabin crew were great in re-assuring passengers after the missed approach. The flight crew handled the difficult weather conditions very well."
Cons: "When trying to board in Copenhagen there were some mishaps, but these were mainly caused by people ignoring signs along the way. They did not offer any complimentary snacks at all. Only one drink"
Cons: "Even though it was clear from my reservation that checked baggage was not included in the initial price, there were no clear links in kayak/vayama or SAS to prepay baggage, and the price is double if you pay at the airport."
Pros: "The food was very good surprisingly"
Cons: "Again the seats are too tight and they should not be allowed to recline"
Pros: "Very comfortable 11+ hr flight. I also had an empty seat next to me so maybe that helped? The food was great."
Cons: "I wish the landscape cameras worked the entire time!"
Pros: "The attendant made sure we got checked in and on the flight even though there could have easily been a hang up that prevented us from getting on the flight. It was pretty empty so we got a full row again for all our baby stuff. Very nice"
Pros: "awfully glad I was on SAS instead of Lufthansa, which had a surprise strike"
Pros: "Crew was efficient; cabin was clean."
Cons: "Seating was tight and uncomfortable. Seat cushions felt thin, we could feel the seat frames, and there was too little space between the rows. Food was lame and over cooked."
Pros: "The boarding process worked well."
Cons: "The crew didn't seem to care much. The entertainment systems didn't really work and the response was simply deal with it. The food was terrible. The crew did not handle the passengers at all as they were up consistently and taking stuff out of the overhead containers."
Pros: "The constant service provided by the flight crew. The food was excellent and even got a free beer. The inflight entertainment selection was abundant, did not even have to listen to my music. Very friendly crew."
Cons: "I understand coach is coach, but it was a little tight for my height."
Pros: "It was perfectly On schedule, the plane was very clean,"
Cons: "Pilot was not easily understood, boarding was a nightmare"
Pros: "There was enough space for your legs, there were blankets and pillows which is nice for a long flight. The individual entertainment screen is preferable for a long flight, so you can watch a movie of your own choice."
Cons: "There were two diner options, chicken or cod, and I was just given the cod without having an option to choose."
Cons: "sas online system needs to be overhauled and user friendly. one sas phone agent not helpful, called back and the agent was very helpful"
Pros: "The food was good, movie choices"
Cons: "Little room to move"
Pros: "Too upset to continue senseless survey"
Cons: "Vacation ruined"
Cons: "Route not following great circle, takes too long for CPH-BOS, should be 6.5 hours."
Cons: "They were 4 hours late because of their plane problems and made me miss my connection. And because it wasn't part of a "package" they didn't care I missed it and I had to pay for a whole new flight. Horrible customer service and they don't care or take care of their customers when it was their fault. I'll never fly or recommend this airline again."
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."
Cons: "I was sitting next to a special needs man and the crew was extremely unhelpful towards him. He should not have been flying alone and they did not help him at all. When you handed out the customs form he told the stewardess he needed help and she ignored him. When I pressed the call button for him it took someone 35minutes to come back and then she told him she would help him after dinner. I pressed a call button the second time to help him find something and again it took over 30 minutes for someone to come back to us. If there was a real emergency this delay would have been a huge problem. The stewardess was extremely rude in general."
Pros: "Missed flight. After waiting in three cues of more than 25 people was told the airline and your customer service could do nothing to help me. Am going to continue to pursue a credit and hope a new flight will be issued! Please help me!"
Pros: "The food is great, the flight attendants are great, and the flight is comfortable."
Cons: "There is little legroom unless you are in first class."
Pros: "Leaving on schedule and arriving 20 minutes early. The crew was very helpful to families with children."
Cons: "The air conditioner was blowing cold air on my head through the whole trip. No way to control it. Or stop it."
Pros: "I was informed by email the evening before my return flight back to London that the flight had been cancelled. I tried calling multiple SAS offices overnight, and finally reached someone the morning of my flight and was rebooked to a different flight, via Berlin. When I got to the airport the booking hadn't been updated, so I had to go through the entire process again with customer service. Because of the flight cancellation and the difficulties rebooking, I was not able to book my luggage so I was charged a penalty fee at the airport when I was finally checked in for the flight via Berlin, and paid much more for my bag than I should have."
Cons: "The crew could ask people who does not have a rush connecting schedule to stay at seat and let those who has a rough schedule to get off first. UA did this, but SAS did not."
