Pros: Great crew & good complimentary food
Cons: More seat pitch
Pros: Great crew & good complimentary food
Cons: More seat pitch
Pros: Seats were comfortable
Cons: Please make an announcement to passengers to not be dismissive if their surroundings. Passenger in front of me was has no regard for people behind him. Kept throwing himself in seat aggressively which cause water/food on trail to fall over. Thanks
Pros: Wonderful on board service from the crew
Cons: You could have had my luggage arrive. Now I don’t know where it is
Pros: Crew was great. Very friendly and accommodating
Cons: Regional jet had hard seats but adequate for 1 he flight
Pros: Officers in the airport are rude and offensive, racial discrimination.
Cons: Change their employees, arrogant, not professional
Cons: Delayed flight.
Pros: The food was great and the crew was very friendly.
Pros: 3 - 2 seat arrangement and lots of leg room. Excellent boarding.
Cons: Bread of sandwich was dry.
Pros: It was a lovely easy flight, always lovely flying star alliance.
Cons: Such a quick flight, everything was appropriate for that. Unsure exactly what would make it better
Pros: friendly and helpful crew
Cons: organise priority exit when we have a delayed arrival, so that those who have a train or flight connection can get out quicker
Pros: This new c-series was fantastic, what a nice aircraft!...feels very airy, clean & modern! Wow! Thumbs up! Looking to fly again on this plane.
Cons: Boarding time needs to be longer. Also, too little time between connecting flights.
Cons: Swiss precision
Cons: 45mn late
Pros: Really good flight. Clean,on time, efficient. Early arrival even
Cons: I was asked to check my carry-on. I have used this carry-on more than 50x without an issue. I have even put it in the smaller compartments on smaller Bombardier jets. I don't have an issue with being asked to check luggage, but I resent being asked when others are allowed to take their carry-on onto to the plane without issue. Right in front of me while I was waiting for a baggage tag, others were being checked in with carry-on equal to mine and allowed to take it onto the plane. I can only surmise that my ticket limited me to one bag onto the plane, although they would not tell me this. This was not clear when I booked the ticket nor when I checked in on-line. I had a 40 minute connection in Zurich so was very concerned that my luggage would not make it. Luckily, it did make it to my next stop. Swiss Air seems to have different restrictions than other airlines which I have encountered before. I take ownership that I should be aware of a tickets restrictions but this was a multi-leg trip (5). However, I will tend to avoid Swiss air in the future, to avoid having to research their unique restrictions.
Pros: Good crew.
Cons: The flight itself was pleasant. But a 3 hour delay, because of technical issues on the incoming flight from Geneva? Why didn’t they send another aircraft?
Pros: Lots of room because plane was half full
Cons: I arrived almost early enough to get on an earlier flight. I think if I'd pleaded a bit more...
Pros: We were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was! An added bonus was the chocolate they gave us. Crew was professional and courteous.
Cons: It was delayed
Cons: Swiss would not let me get off at Zurich tonavoid a 6 hour layover. After the layover the flight was delayed to Malone’s a, causing me to miss my bus and making a total of 24 hours travel time. Disgusting mz
Pros: Great seat, wide enough for an adult and a 2 year old to sit in. Food was nice, but didn’t make you go wow.
Cons: TV was a bit small
Cons: The seats were uncomfortable, smaller aircraft
Pros: Quick trip :-)
Cons: 45 minute delay, but those are pretty understandable and unavoidable.
Pros: Very courteous attendants.
Pros: Crew memebers were so kind at all times. Even thou’ it was a short flight they gave us a free snack and beverages AND a bonus chocolate!
Cons: Nothing it was all great! Even music was playing while we waited on the plane.
Pros: Check in easy
Cons: Weren’t told enough about delays ... very tight seating crew was friendly
Cons: 30 mins late both ways
Pros: I’ve flown SWISS Air twice in the past 6 years and I’ve never had an issue, always a great experience!
Pros: Good clean service that Swiss is known for.
Cons: There’s never overhead space for carryon. Ever since they went to lift, I have had to put my luggage in a row near the rear, making me wait until the plane almost complete Disembarks before able to get the bag.
Pros: typical Swiss quality
Cons: Delay. Missed train connection. Business class went to row 15 To then leave it empty
Pros: Fast journey despite a short delay it arrived on time.
Cons: Felt a bit hectic on the plane, possibly due to other passengers being slow to board.
Pros: Plane was comfortable (for a plane) and the staff were polite and efficient. The flight made up lots of time and the in flight snacks were very welcome.
Cons: The flight was very delayed, and the communications from Swiss was lacking. In fact their app thought the flight had taken off and landed on time?!
Cons: Did not get to make this flight either. Horrible.
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: 1h45 departure delayed with no compensation.
Pros: Boarding without frills. On-time departure. Overall good food. Great cabin crew; they took care of a toddler with a fever and her mother.
Pros: It's such a short flight that to me the experience is pretty insignificant. I liked that it was on time and the rest was very average for what I expected in a 45 minutes flight
Cons: I would have loved a video
Cons: Newark airport is awful. Can't get food, can't get coffee, can't get a newspaper. I would try to avoid it.
Pros: Friendly attendants responded to every need. Chicken with rice meal was very good.
Cons: The sound system for movies was distorted.
Pros: On time, even arrival 20 min earlier, very courteous and professional cabin crew comparing to the rudeness of Lufthansa one. Soft landing.
Cons: At LHR terminal 2, same gate A, B, for 2 different flights which lead to confuse many passengers. Better signing and Public Announcement is needed. Queuing 1:30h for tax refund is totally unacceptable and leads to give up to claim your rights.
Cons: Flight was 2 hours late. This is my second experience in a week with Swiss flights being 2-4 hours behind.
Pros: What I liked is that they didn't really focus on the weight I had little more weight and they didn't really make an issue for me
Cons: Geneva airport is so busy on the weekend I had to stay in the line for 20 minutes it's a little annoying
Cons: smooth & efficient friendly crew
Cons: They checked at the gate all our hand luggages to make sure we didnt exceed the 8 kilo mark. This is very cheap and only suitable for the low cost airlines. I expect swiss air as a higher class flight to turn a blind eye on this matter
Pros: fast boarding, great crew.
Cons: when is SWISS going to change serving something else rather than this chocolate bread during morning flights?
Pros: Gate changes and delays boarding made getting food between flights an impossibility. On board food was appreciated but was a snack and in 12+ hours travelling this made it tough.
Pros: Crew let me sleep!
Cons: nothing to report since I slept!
Cons: Wheelchair assistance at Heathrow was very very slow it took 2 hours to change gates within Terminal 5
Cons: Overbooked flights led to a missed connection resulting in a 12 hour layover
Cons: Check in with British at LHR very bad and slow
Pros: Beautiful plane. Cool black leather seats. Extremely nice crew.
Cons: No tv our power source
Cons: There was no food or entertainment thus the star rating. The one thing that was very uncomfortable were the seats, there was no lower back support at all.
Cons: BA has a lot of nerve charging first-class prices for coach-seat legroom. The fact that the middle seat is empty doesn't warrant the price increase. Abominable food and no in-flight entertainment complete the picture.
Cons: There was a charg for ALL drinks & food! This made the service process quite long & cumbersome.
Pros: Great safety video, made me laugh.
Pros: It was short and fine
Cons: The unpleasant unhelpful staff
Pros: We slept the entire flight since this was the second leg of our journey.
Cons: Plane departed 40 minutes late even though we were on board in time. Congestion at Heathrow was the problem, but this was not a problem for us since we got an extra 40 minutes of sleep.
Pros: Because of you he delayed flight from Los Angeles they gave us a new one to Milan which arrived on n Linate instead of Malpensa two hours after my scheduled trip. Not nice
Cons: The flight was 1+ hour late, but little information made available, including basic info like gate.
Pros: British Airways makes you pay for water!!! I accept paying for food and drinks but water should be free Also their machines to pay on board don’t accept USA credit cards so I couldn’t pay but a kind flight attendant allowed me to buy with card and she hand wrote info
Pros: Uneventful, other than having missed the original connecting flight on account of delays.
Cons: There was no food or entertainment, so I can't rate them.
Cons: The flight status erroneously showed it to be "Cancelled"
Pros: Quick, smooth flight
Cons: Landed over 40 mins ago and still waiting to get off the flight.
Pros: I did get to Glasgow
Cons: Boarding by bus, late, expensive, bag fee, no drink.
Pros: Overall service
Cons: Boarding was confusing There was no food or entertainment on short flight
Pros: New plane. Adequate comfortable seating. Relatively punctual.
Cons: You have to buy even water so it feels like a low cost airline.
Cons: I think it's a real shame that BA have gone budget and no longer offer complimentary food on their shorter haul flights. At least they're using M&S though.
Pros: I like the comfort of the BA planes even for such a short hop, efficient service and fast.
Cons: Shame the service no longer includes a complimentary snack/drink, especially as the prices have not changed. Doesn't encourage brand loyalty, although on that route BA sadly have the monopoly.
Cons: No food Uncomfortable seats Rude staff Very overpriced
Pros: Very professional. Crew was very friendly and accommodating.
Pros: Quick flight. Nice crew
Cons: The fact that there was no free food and drink on the flight.
Pros: Flight took off on time and arrived 10 minutes early.
Pros: Smooth boarding and on time on both flights. Food was decent.
Cons: (1) Some in-flight entertainment issues which meant it wasn't working for about 30minites. (2) I know the crew have a hard job and have many difficult passengers to deal with. Even so I do find there's a bit too much "attitude" shown by some members of staff. On my flight to London, a mother with a young child wanted hot water and the staff (middle aged British male) was trying to tell her repeatedly she should say "please" when she asks. She was asking politely so this behaviour was rather poor in my view.
Pros: The aircraft
Pros: Cabin staff
Cons: Cabin was shoddy. New beverage service!
Pros: Food awful no entertainment
Pros: The flight was so somth
Cons: The crow service was so bad
Pros: The payment system was down so it was painful and slow
Cons: None of them reminded me of the fact that I need a transit visa for the UK (I mean, isn't it rediculous? I am just staying there for 5 hours). When I called in for cancellation at the airline, they told me to talk to my agent company Cheaptickets. Cheaptickets simply told me that I can't get any money back, and was extremely arrogant and impatient. Later (for a week I was trying to save this ticket by talking to the British Embassy to see if I can get the visa done and they are just "we can't help you") they told me that I can get a refund of like 30 SGD and they promised to send me an e-mail about it. They never ever did. I also tried to change the dates and the handling fee + fair difference was like 1200 SGD (are you joking?) they simply told me, prices fluctuate... Finally I went to the check in counter desperate. The staff even refused to talk to me about my situation because simply, "there is no BA ticket office in Singapore" and told me to call them. I said the office is closed, but they are like, yeah just call them. They swept me off like a moron. Extremely arrogant, impatient, insensitive. I paid 900 SGD for nothing and a whole week of anxiety and regret. I will never take this and I will never use Cheaptickets or Kayak
Pros: I received an email cancelling the flight before I left home.
Cons: Last minute cancellation of the flight by BA meant I was unable to attend the event I was booked on. Have found service has definitely declined on recent BA flights I've travelled on. Check in staff are good though.
Pros: Staff are excellent, really friendly, respectful service. Food (expensive as always on planes) but excellent quality, really good choice to use M&S as providers. Excellent communication from pilot and cabin staff on delays before takeoff.
Cons: System for paying by food with Avios points did not work. Plane left almost an hour late due to delays (landed 30 mins late).
Pros: Decent seat pitch on the relatively new a320 configuration. Lost my bag for a weekend trip, unapologetic ground handling staff, waited 90 mins to report it and no gesture of goodwill to remedy the situation.
Pros: We didn't crash.
Cons: Rude, entitled and lazy employees. Zero recognition of Emerald status. Forced me to check my bag which fit the onboard limits and flew on 3 flights, incl one on BA - on this very same itinerary.
Pros: We didn't crash.
Cons: Seat was exactly the same as coach. My vegan meal consisted of 2 tiny plates of fruit and a soggy, egg-free omelet with unflavored tofu and no salt. Disgusting. Staff was snobbish and full of it. No on-board entertainment, no wifi, no reading material except the magazine. Oh they did try to sell me duty free. AVOID.
Pros: Cabin crew always professional. The cabin was fresh and new.
Cons: the leg room In club Europe is appalling. No premium feel at all.
Pros: same service from AA
Pros: Flights were fine, normal, typical. No leg-room but that's the case on all flights these days.
Cons: Flights were fine but connection time in London AWEFUL! They gave us just one hour to connect and you absolutely can not get from one terminal to the other - a long distance apart even by bus - and then go through security yet again, in just one hour. Then, as everyone is in the same boat, you wait in line for a couple of hours to be re-booked. Terrible! It all turned into a fiasco - 11 hours of travel, turning into 24. Awful. We will NEVER USE HETHROW AIRPORT AS A CONNECTING POINT AGAIN - EVER!!!!!!!!!
Pros: Crew was supportive and very kind
Cons: Big delay due to unanounced gate for boarding. Systems at the airport were not giving the info. It took more than an hour to gather all passengers to the plane, which ended in 1hr 20 min delay.
Cons: Both when waiting in line to board and on the plane, the staff was acting like they were headmasters checking on passengers who had too much carryon. I understand that this is a problem for the airline but they should train their people to act in a friendly manner. There are different ways to say the same thing. Big turn-off at the beginning of the flight, which was an hour late due to weather conditions.
Pros: Flight was on time and slept most of the way which is always a good thing.
Cons: We sat at the runway for 1 hour
Pros: Quick and easy boarding, no extra charge for emergency exit seat, snack and drinks included, modern interior, on time departure and early arrival.
Cons: People abusing the free drinks and the crew supplying them with them.
Cons: It took ages to get everyone to board. Arrived in Amsterdam almost an hour later. BA need to either speed up the boarding process or allow earlier boarding time.
Pros: Only scraped a two as was enough movies to watch.
