Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Friendly, cheerful crew. Clean plane & good entertainment. Food was hot & decent."
Cons: "More food, drinks & snacks. Especially on such long flights."
Pros: "As per usual, Cathay’s service was top notch. Friendly, courteous crew, good food, a great entertainment system with a great selection. This particular flight was very smooth and, as it was only around 65% full, I was able to stretch out and get some sleep."
Pros: "Everything is great"
Pros: "The staff and there were great movies on the flight."
Cons: "That you had to special order vegetarian options or they wouldn’t have any sometimes, and I couldn’t online check in so I couldn’t make the special order."
Pros: "On time. Got an isle seat."
Cons: "Very hard to understand air host's english."
Cons: "I d have liked if they had served refreshments/drinks immediately after boarding. Although I had dinner, the flight is like 1AM so a light snack would be appreciated. toilet cleanliness was an issue...the toilets were out of toilet paper."
Pros: "Leg room, food, airline staff"
Cons: "Too hot in the plane"
Pros: "Crew was excellent with great service and appropriate amount of information from captain"
Cons: "Baggage return upon arrival not very good Also airline requirements of arriving 3 hours before flight is a cruel joke."
Pros: "Super friendly inflight staff, especially on my flight to canada"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. The food was pretty good and the flight was so smooth that I slept for about 10 hours of our 16 hour flight. Can't wait to fly Cathay Pacific the next time I fly to Asia!"
Pros: "The crew on Cathay Pacific is really a cut above. they seem to have a genuine wish to see to the comfort of the passengers. It is also a pleasure to have so many choices for entertainment."
Cons: "The boarding from NY to Hong Kong was really well organized, with people in the back of the plane getting on first so that it was easy for everyone to get right in. This did not happen on the return flight from Hong Kong. Further, at one point we were rousted from the waiting room and made to go through a second inspection, having are bags searched again, and having random people go through especially invasive searches. Very unpleasant and unnerving as we were given no reason for this."
Pros: "Left earlier than expected and accomedations with movies and food was great"
Cons: "They were limited with certain meals"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "The crew was uninformed and unobservant to actual conditions in the cabin. They kept the air conditioning on and no one was available to address the situation. People started to take their winter coats out of the overhead bins and sit in their seats with coats on. They spent a significant amount of time repeatedly requesting that the window shades be moved up or down. Frankly, if I buy a window seat I should have the option to look out the window if I'm not disturbing my neighbors."
Cons: "Would have liked to have been offered a beverage more often"
Pros: "Overall was great, smooth flight and great service."
Cons: "Seating in coach was really tight and during my trip in Hong Kong, I had to be hospitalized"
Pros: "Excellent service, lucked out into a flight that wasn't full for once and was able to sleep."
Cons: "Food could have been better. Pasty potatoes and soft vegetables. Ice cream though :)"
Pros: "Crew was great, entertainment was diverse, blankets were comfortable, and food was good. I think I'll make Cathay Pacific my airline for East Asia US travel."
Cons: "The number of ads before in flight entertainment could start (i.e. movie), but that's a trade off I'm guessing, so not a big concern."
Cons: "For a 15 hour flight no way to make economy class comfortable at this price ( I flew Cathay since they were much cheaper than flying directly from japan"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "No Wifi on a 16 hour flight is simply stunning to me."
Pros: "Love the plane, seats"
Cons: "Food has gone down"
Pros: "I liked the crews the food just ok. It was a long flight,my back was uncomfortable."
Pros: "When you see a big plane you always wonder how long it will take but Cathay Pacific was very efficient during the boarding and deplaning. It was a very long flight and they kept everybody happy with a smile. Extremely accommodating."
Pros: "Food was incredible and the staff were so accommodating! Absolutely loved it!"
Pros: "Excellent, kind, professional crew and timely flight."
Pros: "-Staff were incredibly attentive and gracious at every step. Could not ask for more from them. The flight attendants were also really conscientious but also discrete about making sure that things were comfortable to passengers, for example making sure that windows were closed most of the time and lights were down so that people could sleep in between meals, and moving someone that was sick to a more comfortable and private seat, both for the sake of the sick individual and for the comfort of the people that had initially been sitting around them. -The complementary movie options were great and really helped pass the time on the 24+hr flight from NYC to Western Australia. -1 free large checked bag, which was very nice. -I think the complementary food and snacks were really yummy and generous, for airline food. I very much enjoyed the meals and snacks. Also, the complementary wine was a nice treat and tasted surprisingly good. -The complementary pillows and blankets were nice, warm, and soft. -The flights were on time, much better than American airlines that I've flown on. -The bathrooms were cleaned regularly throughout the flight and were much cleaner and nicer smelling than other airlines that I've been on."
Cons: "The only thing thing that could really be improved upon (which is not as much the airline's fault as the plane manufacturer's fault) is that the economy seats and cabin layout could be more comfortable for long flights. I understand how hard it must be to design a plane that fits that many people and that's comfortable for 24+hrs of flying, but a few improvements could relatively easily be made I think, which would improve the experience dramatically: -If the seats were softer (and perhaps more ergonomically designed with an average person's shape in mind) it would make a world of difference, I think. -Being able to put the arm up on the wall side of the window seat would make it much more comfortable. -Padding on the arms would also help. -Of course more leg space and wider seats would make a world of difference, but I know that is tough to do since space is limited."
Pros: "Everything went us per schedule. The staff nice and polite."
Cons: "The seating is too cramped ."
Pros: "amazing they offer a meal!"
Cons: "as it was a red eye flight it would've been great if there were more seats open so one could sleep. the leg room is pretty small even for a not-tall person (5'4")"
Cons: "No seat assignment until at the airport, so my wife and I had to sit at separate rows, far away from each other for 15 hours. I will never buy from kayak again"
Pros: "Crew is always very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Need to have more movie and tv show choices. The food could also be a bit better."
Pros: "Great service. Nice plane. Flight attendants were attractive"
Pros: "Good communication about departure delay, check in was fast and efficient."
Cons: "I had to ask crew repeatedly for a simple snack, meals were very slow to arrive, entertainment system we'd glitchy, food was just ok."
Pros: "After being unexpectedly upgraded to premium economy at the gate, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the seats were even more comfortable than I would have expected for this section. The reclining pitch was excellent - even for the people sitting behind. There is a hassock-like panel to elevate one's legs about 45 degrees. Almonds instead of peanuts, a menu option with a main of a nice piece of steak (that could be cut with an airline knife!), amenity kit... Very happy passenger."
Pros: "The quick response of flight attendants and the comfort of the economy seats."
Pros: "It seems like it has little more space than other airline I use to ride for international. Entertainment has more verity to watch. Personally I thought I book the seat within 48 hours but they said it didn't go though but I got better seat though a ticket counter."
Cons: "Website is little confused and try to book the seat arrange wasn't work . Try to book mileage,book seats,see satuts of schedule over all Website is little confusing."
Cons: "48 hr preboarding online checkin is nonexistent. Error messages via link."
Pros: "The food is great"
Pros: "Excellent service. Very clean, mostly."
Cons: "Tight seats. Not the worst, but still tight. Bathrooms could get messy and unstocked."
Pros: "Smooth, quiet and comfortable overnight flight from Vancouver to JFK"
Pros: "The staff both when checking in and on board were excellent. The seating space was better than other international flights we have taken in the past and since. The food was better than what we received in the other flight we took later the same day (with another airline). We highly recommend Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "The entertainment options could be better - but this is just a minor flaw in their overall service."
Pros: "excellent entertainment selection"
Cons: "no bottled water, the tap water tasted terrible and chemically treated! also the flight was delayed 15 minutes but ended up landing 50 minutes late, i cannot see how they were not able to make up the time in the air for something so small. I also saw premium economy and asked for an upgrade, they wanted $1000, which when i saw the cabin and the amenities was happy i didn't pay for because compared to Japan Airlines which charges a fraction of this for the upgrade, Cathay is a shame."
Pros: "The entertainment options were good with many choices to choose from."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable with little leg room, especially when the seat in front reclines back. A few years back I flew the same route with Cathay Pacific where the seats had hard backs and reclining did not affect the seat behind you. That was much better."
Pros: "It was very worm...I told the 3 times...and it did not make a difference."
Cons: "They should have ac vents like most other airlines."
Pros: "Only one thing is good, which was the cabin crew of Cathay Pacific provided an excellent service on the plane. I saw smiles on the face and they were really helpful."
Cons: "Don't know why I couldn't check in online.. It made my flight experience terrible because I can only check in when I arrived at the airport, my husband and I had to sit separately. Food are not good in flight and the plane was so bouncing most of the time, it made me sick and have headache really bad."
Pros: "Good service by the crew"
Pros: "Food was hot, tasty and nutritious."
Cons: "Cramped in cattle class but that's not Cathays fault. I need to earn more to fly comfortably"
Pros: "I've really enjoyed the comfort and the stellar services by Cathay Pacific staff. Keep up the amazing service!"
Pros: "* Good food twice, with readily available snacks upon request * Nice flight attendants who are ready to help * Big, nice, new-feeling plane, lots of bathrooms * Lots of information along the way * Diverse entertainment options, including some good non-blockbuster movie options from countries other than the US"
Cons: "* I couldn't get comfortable in the seat. I don't know why * They had us shut the window shades at a certain point and never had us reopen then, resulting in a 30-hour night for me that made me really uncomfortable (especially because every once in a while I'd get this wonderful burst of sun from a shade someone had opened and shut suddenly). * I didn't realize that I could just ask for refreshments whenever I wanted. I would have liked a flight attendant to tell me that from the beginning. * There were tons of disposables in use for meals. I brought my own silverware and water bottle to avoid using disposables, but it would be nice if they found some solution to that. * This is a small thing, but every time there was an announcement on the PA, the audio on my movie would drop back down to the default level (i.e., inaudible). I had to keep raising the volume and rewinding to catch up what I had missed."
Cons: "Food was served warm. Perhaps the menu could be better, but it wasn’t bad."
Cons: "the seat did not reclined, it was broke. travel with my wife on different seat my wife had a broken knee and they assigned a seat smack in the middle of the isle and she told me she almost past out because she could not move I had a passenger in the back that was kicking my seat every few minutes and I woke up every time I went to sleep"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working"
Pros: "Though I was never sent an email for my daughter's check in, I had a different reservation for her but still under my name and same email, when I called on the phone the people were pleasant. They still never provided me with an email though and information allowing me to have my daughter checked in. they only provided me with her reference number."
Cons: "All in all we had a poor experience and my family and I were disappointed. I'm about to book yet another ticket for my brother, but this time I'm not considering Swiss Air. Just so you know, I'm a very positive person and appreciate every polite and courteous gesture. Unfortunately this experience didn't allow me to do so."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, air crew was friendly, helpful and patient. The food was actually really quite good. Entertainment kept my little ones occupied and seated."
Cons: "There were quite a lot of in-flight announcements by the flight crew - which disrupted the in-flight entertainment and irritated the little ones. The garbage dispenser in the bathroom seemed a bit small for the task."
Pros: "Outstanding service. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Was sent through two redeem security screenings. In Zürich. I doubt this was the airline's fault but it had been a very early morning and it was challenging to remain patient."
Pros: "Legroom is too little"
Pros: "Food a, entertainment and crew were really good!"
Cons: "Boarding was chaose and seats were tight."
Pros: "The food was really great! And the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Many delays that seemed unnecessary. We waited for a while for late passengers to board, which seemed strange, given that last time when Swiss made me miss my transfer, the next plane left without me when delaying takeoff would not have been necessary at all. After the passengers arrived, we were delayed again because of weather. And once we arrived at Newark, we had to wait for over half an hour to get to the gate for some mysterious reason."
Pros: "I was concerned the connections would be too tight but it worked out great!"
Pros: "The flight attendants are great and their aircraft are very clean and comfortable. I especially appreciated the request for passengers to raise their seat backs during meal times."
Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Three and a half hours delay due to technical difficulties. Food was only a small cheese sandwich and a bottle of water. Could have given us a little more food. Seat on flight did not recline. Extreme turbulence for half an hour, very scary, thought we would never make it! All in all, a bad experience."
Pros: "Food was tasty and of decent proportions, entertainment, while somewhat limited in selection, contained a number of compelling movies bar I enjoyed. I had a bulkhead seat, which was exceedingly comfortable"
Cons: "USB port was broken in the seat, but enjoyed the entertainment offered that I didn't need it."
Pros: "Best flight crew experience ever"
Pros: "Attention to details from flight attendants"
Cons: "The food was not to my liking except for the crackers, ice cream and water!!"
Pros: "Crew, food...."
Cons: "As I said before..."
Cons: "Expired cheese. Loudest plane I have ever been on."
Pros: "Even though the flight felt like forever, the cabin crew did such a wonderful job at making us all feel comfortable. The food selection was great and the fact that the staff was approachable was also a great plus. Will definitely fly again using Swiss air. Thank you"
Cons: "On the flight to Zurich the passenger behind me gave me a difficult time about reclining my seat back but keep in mind he had his reclined. Coming back to Newark the gentleman behind my boyfriend made a comment how he didn't have room due to his seat being reclined. The passenger next to us was arguing with the passenger in front of her because she didn't want that person to recline their seat back. I have never experienced such rude people on a flight and I realize this is beyond your control. It made for a very uncomfortable and stressful flight. Maybe signs can be posted or a message when booking your flight that ALL passengers have a right to recline seats and if space is an issue for your comfort then upgrade to business class for more room."
Pros: "Check in, crew were friendly enough"
Cons: "Worst food ever, vegetarian so called wraps and breakfast. Bland eggs and rotten fruit salad. The fact that when I request a window seat and am told I have one then to find out I don't. Rather tell me that in the first place. This has happened numerous times with swiss. Remote for the entertainment didn't work and although crew said they would reset it they never did. A bit of a pain for a long haul flight of 8 hours...."
Pros: "I cannot check in online for us flights so I need to get my seat at the check in. I am flying with swiss every month between Zürich and New York but a lot of Ines I get a shitty seat even if I am silver status As a frequent flyer I expect a priority handling which is not the case . No upgrade poaaibility due to wrong booking class (even if flights are very expensive) if this continues to go that way I will change airline alliance This is more a miles and more issue but it is really annoying me in a way that I really consider changin"
Cons: "Unorganized and hectic at the gate; personnel were rude and unhelpful. I was asked numerous times to Leave and let them do their work" when I asked why I was on standby and what that meant."
Cons: "Sound for on-screen entertainment not working. It was static-y all the time and completely cut out the rest of the time. I made various attempts to solve the problem, switching headphones, switching to my own headphones (which can't really be done because they have a two-prong jack and personal headphones are always one). I tried watching different movies, programs, music...it wasn't the material I was watching that was the problem. I asked the flight attendant to reset my console. That didn't work either. I just ended up reading my book the entire 9 hour trip."
Pros: "General good service, food was good"
Cons: "Airplane wasn't clean, we had hair on the headrest cover and asked one of the crew members for new headrest cover but was ignored."
Pros: "Food, service"
Cons: "Room in economy"
Pros: "This direct flight from Zurich-Newark is pretty comfortable, especially if you get the two seats at the either sides of the plane (it's a 2x4x2 config in Coach). The food is really good, they are generous with drinks and the crew is really friendly and smiling! Would take this flight again without any reservations in future!"
Pros: "I was supposed to visit my father who was just put in a nursing home for a few days and the day of my flight I received an email from Swiss that they had rebooked me for the next day! So frustrating! The trip would have gotten so short that it wasn't worth it so I had to reschedule it 6 weeks out. It got my dad really upset! Thank god his health is stable at the moment."
Cons: "Delay and lost the luggage for the second time"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours at airport with no explanation why and little compensation for the experience."
Pros: "Food was adequate for economy. Free drinks on trans-Atlantic flights are a nice perk. Cabin crew is friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to incoming aircraft. It was probably not the airline's fault. Berlin Tegel gate area is too small for international flight - not enough seats and nowhere else to wait after security."
Pros: "The food was delivered fast. The meals were delicious, especially the chicken and polenta. I also appreciated the ice cream and I enjoyed the selection of movies and television. I also appreciated the map and trip information display."
Pros: "Professional Staff; best food on international flight ever."
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: "I tried to get on an earlier flight to travel with my husband and every person claimed they couldn't help me. I called the airline who said there were plenty of seats on the flight, but they told me I needed someone onsite to help me make the change. Not great customer service."
Pros: "Airline attendants were very polite and nice."
Cons: "Older plane, arm rests did not go up all the way, and missed landing on the initial approach to Newark, which delayed landing for another 20 minutes."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. Asked 3 different personnel at Zurich airport at no one could help with wifi or how it could be accessed since both wifi scanning machine in Gate E area weren't working. It just seemed that they were incompetent or weren't willing to help. Crew on flight were very nice. Vegetarian food options better than chicken / meat options."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very nice and organized."
Cons: "Flight delayed , and while waiting for long time I was not sure which gate to wait infront."
Pros: "food was pretty good, nice selection of movies"
Cons: "cramped seats"
Pros: "This flight left on time and landed safely."
Cons: "Not worse than other international flights. Entertainment system better than Lufthansa or United. This plane used the 2 jack connection for headphones, which prevents one from using own/normal stereo jack headphones. The provided phones are terrible had to be cranked really loud because of the plane noise, it was almost impossible to understand dialogues in movies."
Pros: "Friendly service. Very attentive crew,"
Cons: "Seating comfort is mediocre to poor. I know I only flew economy class, however, sardines have more space."
Pros: "Great service on the board service, plenty of drinks during flight, decent food on economy class, spotless clean plane."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and helpful, even more so as we traveled with two small kids. Very professional, high standards even for economy!"
Pros: "Good communication, helpful and friendly staff, usually on time, and better than average food & beverage options."
Cons: "Entertainment system is limited and touchscreen was not calibrated so I had to use the handset."
Cons: "I became infected with a head cold in the airplane and after I arrived at my destination I got sick. The person next to me was well, so was I. Is this a recurring problem? What can be done? Maintaining a cleaner air conditioning system?"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment, the food, the frequency with which they passed out water, and the crew were all excellent. Online check in was smooth and easy to transfer to my iPhone wallet. Loved the chocolate at the end of the flight!"
Cons: "The delay in flight time by 40 minutes was annoying, but understandable due to weather and delay in connecting flights."
Pros: "Almost everything was good. Crew was friendly and courteous. They treated out kids specially well, with puzzles etc. When the entertainment system stopped responding the crew member stopped by more than once to "send" our choice of movies to our screen. (Since the keypad became non functional.) In-spite of the glitch we would fly Swiss again!"
Cons: "Entertainment system was buggy and stopped working mid flight. Headphones were of extremely poor quality."
Cons: "Shortly after take-off, the person in front of me put her seat back as far as it could go. I was in the last seat our economy row, by the window. Snacks were served almost immediately, and then dinner. For a brief time the passenger in front of me had her seat up for dinner. However, by the time I had finished dinner, I felt captured in my seat, It took a long time for the trays to be collected after dinner. I wished I'd brought anxiety medication. Could have been a better selection of movies."
Cons: "Would have liked a bit more instruction about the lengthy connecting trek in Zurich. It worked out fine, but the trains are a little confusing to tired & weary travelers."
Pros: "What can I say - the flight was empty! Everyone had room to sleep and relax. The food was great and the wine wasn't bad either. Felt like a retreat after a stressful trip!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent - friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats in economy too cramped - I paid extra for next seat up from basic economy which covered our baggage but, for some reason, not seats with more leg room."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the food delicious, and the plane itself in highest quality and state-of-the-art."
Pros: "Amazing !"
Cons: "Nothing all good really"
Cons: "The service on Virgin Australia is quite poor. They are barely around. The seats are also only mediocre"
Pros: "Crew was generally nice and caring."
Cons: "Of course coach seat was not super comfortable. And speaker and screen at my seat did not work."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Screens have poor color quality Seat too small Legroom cut into by electronics box Row 45 next to bathroom and no windows"
Pros: "Premium economy was perfect, smaller cabin with less people, great flight."
Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"
Pros: "Not crowded. Crew was good."
Cons: "Not taking a bus to board the plane."
Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "Poor communication about the reasons for our 4 hour delay. Also, we purchased Economy X, which should have given us priority boarding, but we were told we had to stand in the general admission queue."
Cons: "Getting home 5 hrs later than planned"
Pros: "Meals were excellent and plane was very clean. Economy delight is definitely an upgrade worth considering with extra leg room and space in front of you in general."
Cons: "Boarding can get crowded so don't be in a rush"
Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."
Pros: "Movies. Meals. Wine. Freq"
Pros: "I loved the food and the amount of it. There were so many movies and tv shows and music to choose from!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t comfortable enough for me to fall asleep."
Pros: "Service, pilot updates, and seating were all great!"
Pros: "The flight crew was phenomenal, especially Daniella. Somehow we wound up with seats right next to the bathroom door, which would have been a pretty uncomfortable situation for a variety of reasons, but the flight wasn't full, and she helped us find a suitable place to sit. Also, my wife and I usually take our tea with honey vs. milk and sugar. Even though honey is usually one of the options for tea, she found a way to accommodate our request. The lunch meals were the best I can remember in a long time on an airline flight. They might have been the best I've ever had. The chicken curry was authentic, flavorful and spicy. Frankly my outbound flight had problems. My luggage got damaged. The transfer experience in Manchester left a LOT to be desired. I wasn't planning to use Virgin Atlantic again, but this flight crew (Daniella especially) redeemed Virgin Atlantic. They were attentive, pleasant, diligent."
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like about this flight was the boarding area. Once you get into that the area, you don't really have access to appetizing food (only vending machines) or even restrooms. That's one thing that could be improved."
Pros: "Friendly staff, so much food/snacks were offered. Good movies available."
Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The food was okay. There were more tasty options traveling to Heathrow versus from Heathrow to the NYC. The boarding process was a mess. We had to wait in an enormous line and then take a bus to the flight."
Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"
Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."
Cons: "10 hour delay in Brisbane was terrible"
Pros: "Free drinks! Lots of food and good entertainment. Glad to have a free blanket and headphones as well."
Cons: "Economy seating wasn’t that comfortable"
Cons: "the food selection did not meet my diet restrictions. Found it hard to avoid due to hunger over the duration"
Pros: "love the lounge and easy check in and boarding, great attendants and smooth trip"
Cons: "would be nice if lounge was open earlier - arrived for 8:30am flight and had to wait around in freezing cold terminal with no coffee for an hour"
Cons: "For oversea traveling, food could and should be better. For our flight from AKL to BNE, we had to pay for our soft drink!!!"
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."
Cons: "The crew was rude."
Cons: "A plane from 1960? No entertainment center!"
Pros: "Choice of movies was good, but told the flight over was better. I flew another airline. Had no issue checking one bag in for free, but I think that is standard on an international flight."
Cons: "Entertainment systems take up foot/bag space underneath the seats. Was not able to get more than one glass of wine, even though I missed the first beverage service, that is my fault though, but I don't recall it being an issue getting a drink between services. Entertainment systems had contrast issues and it seemed like a lot of people 8 - 10 had issues since they were using iPads instead of the built in monitors. A lot of wear showing on the entertainment systems remotes."
Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"
Pros: "The staff was so helpful and upbeat and somehow they stayed that way the whole 8 hour flight. This was economy btw! More good things: Comfy seat, personal entertainment screen, really nice food. One free checked bag, bathroom was bigger, (it may have been a handicapped bathroom)."
Cons: "Nothing was a problem at all. (I saved "excellent" for the things I really wanted to emphasize)"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor food."
Pros: "The whole flight was great quick boarding, lots of leg room, good entertainment, a USB charge port, good lighting, and the crew was very nice and helpful. I enjoyed the flight and would like to fly Virgin Atlantic more. Finally, you are the 3rd best flight, I have ever take, and the 2nd best airline I've been on. Flew Business Class on Swiss Air once to Geneva (#1) and all the flights I have had with Porter Air are comparable to your airline, but the free cookies and beverages at Porter's terminal in Toronto wonderful."
Cons: "A couple things went wrong on this trip, my checked luggage got misplaced for a day, and a nice women in baggage claim told me what was happening and a nice man handled my claim and my bag has now been returned to me. The bigger thing is my flight bas delayed taking off by 3 hours. Let me start that I would rather have a part replaced on the runway then not, safety is paramount. The fact is my flight took off 3 hours late from London (VS11), and got to my destination (BOS) 2.5 hours late. Kudos to the flight crew for getting me to my destination faster by gaining a little time. Plus, since BOSTON was my final destination it was all fine this time. But if I had had to get home to the elder person I take care of or my teenager it would been a problem. Again, I'm annoyed, but I do understand the reasons and they are valid and preferred. I have heard that airlines to keep their flight rating high, wait for planes to leave the gate on time and then do repairs on the tarmac. If this is still a SOP for airlines you should change the way the statistics are collected and figure out a way of not perpetuating this type of disincentive. This is just hypothesis on my part, and my whole trip had little negatives."
Pros: "Flight was on the emptier side, so my boyfriend and I each got our own entire rows to lay down and sleep the entire flight. Which was great, since I had just spent 6h vomiting from bali belly on the previous flight. Liked that they accommodated my GF meal."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment system, free adult beverages and boarding process"
Cons: "I don't like that they have you pay extra for picking seats that have no extras. No preboarding. No extra legroom."
Pros: "Service, food, etched all fine"
Cons: "Fees to assign seats in advance are very high. Sat on the Tarmac a while before takeoff and after landing."
Pros: "Make sure you bring food with you because they will starve you. I also asked for band-aide 2x but it never came. Service is very poor."

Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"

Cons: "45 minute delay on runway after landing was very very frustrating."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and flight was clean. Lots of movies to watch."
Cons: "The seats gets smaller each year. For a seven hour flight, the seats are very uncomfortable, no space to move. The flight with the hand held remote control TV had poor visual quality. It was hard to watch movies with dark background."
Pros: "Good was decent."
Cons: "This VS25 flight, whatever airplane it was felt old and the v poorly designed "seat back pocket" sat so low and protruded out so much that it pushed against your knees. V uncomfortable."
Cons: "The food I had food poisoning"
Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable seats in the Economy section and a very confusing remote control to maneuver the entertainment screen. The crew was excellent so it's not their fault. The food was passable but those white bread rolls got to go. My luggage didn't arrive so let's hope they bring it today."
Pros: "Flight D001 (Delta / Virgin, LHR to JFK) Staff were terrific. The food was the best I've had so far (and I fly a lot!) The choice of entertainment was varied and excellent. Flight was smooth and captain was very communicative."
Cons: "Chair kept snapping back to position from recline (33E). Man behind me kept banging on the screen behind my head Inspite of announcement not to do do from cabin crew. If they could catch ppl doing that and say something that would be great :-) (although I realize if course the this isn't their fault.)"
Cons: "During this trip all my flights got delayed and I was told that I could not get a hotel room and had to pay for myself."

Pros: "The crew was understanding and sympathetic to the customer's frustration with a delayed flight."

Cons: "No charging port for cellphone."
Pros: "Everything. Very nice accommodating ok"
Pros: "Crew and boarding were great, which I expect from a premium carrier like delta."
Cons: "Perfect day outside, not a busy day or time to fly. The email forbhe plane being late was was too last minute. A heads up sooner would have been nice. That way we’re not waiting at the airport."
Pros: "drink carts came around twice"
Cons: "Even though there were sunchips available, they were not giving them out to everyone. Only the people that paid up in coach got the sun chips. The rest of us got these sad bag of pretzels and cheesey snacks. So sad. Why wouldn't Delta offer the same snacks to everyone? Seems like such a small additional cost compared to such an offensive action. The money you save is certainly lost in bad publicity."

Pros: "Crew was nice. Flight very smooth"
Cons: "We had to get seats at boarding because of the flight delay. She offered us two seats in the back. I knew they don't pushback so I said no. She had given the woman ahead of me two seats in comfort plus. Did not offer that and was rude. There were at least a few empty seats in that area. As a courtesy to us having 1)been delayed in Costa Rica. And then 2) a long wait for the connecting flight in Atlanta it would have been reasonable to offer those seats. Which remained empty"
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Staff and crew were friendly. Everything went well despite the 30 min delay we had on the runway. They gave us snacks and we ended up still arriving on time."
Pros: "Convince of the online apps and the TSA precheck"

Cons: "The air above my seat wasn't working for the duration of the flight and there were problems with the air throughout the cabin so it was uncomfortably warm for the whole flight."
Cons: "Very dated plane. First class seat was worn, crooked, and uncomfortable. No entertainment offered. Almonds or biscuit cookies were the only food options."
Pros: "I'm not sure but it seemed as though the isle was wider than before or other airlines. It looks as nice not having the beverage cart hit my elbow when it went down the isle."

Cons: "Seats not comfortable enough"

Cons: "I loked everything in my trip"
Cons: "Was delayed 1.5hrs"
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Food in first class was quite good. Flight was smooth, and arrived early."
Cons: "The boarding agents lost control of the crowd form the get go. The first class cabin crew on our side of the plane was inattentive, though it appeared on the other half of the plane the crew was very attentive. This is one of the poorer first class seats in the industry. The "lie flat" seat is just that, a lie. It is pitched at an angle, though not as steep as some. Foot cubby is narrow and constrictive, bordering on claustrophobic."
Pros: "Great crew and service. Drink were served all the time. Everyone was extra nice"
Cons: "Small cramped and uncomfortable plane."
Pros: "Flight was very smooth, and crew would actually smile. Coach Sears very cramp."
Cons: "Poor intercom. Could not hear pilot's announcements. Gate staff not very friendly. Sears assigned while boarding...didn't know until then if my wife and I would sit together."
Cons: "Everything was excellent! I will be flying with them again!"
Pros: "United/ LH first called it a mechanical delay....we waited....then the weather caused this mini plane not to take off....long story short...we had to stay in a hotel...nobody gave us a voucher...our helped us with anything....very poor service"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous. Food was pretty ok and drinks were available during whole flight. Lufthansa is a good airline"
Pros: "Could not get skybridge to operate so that we could disembark. United airlines."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly or very helpful, nothing stood out. As this was the first leg of my international flight, it would have been much better I had proper food, rather than a bag of 6 pretzels, especially since I had to be at the airport three hours earlier, and I had a six hour layover in Newark."
Pros: "Economy seats are not comfortable. The seat cushions are worn out and do not provide good support for long flights."
Pros: "The aircraft for one - their new 747-8l. Spacious and quiet. Loved the ambience. The food was absolutely fantastic Indian food. Service professional and courteous. I would plonk money to travel LH business class for sure."
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: "The crew were very friendly. The plane was very clean. The service was excellent, and my husband and I were impressed by the food quality. They even hand out wet wipes for you before serving food, so you can feel clean! I felt like the seats were pretty normal in terms of size and space in economy class, but obviously, it would have been nice to have a tiny bit more space. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "nothing :)"
Pros: "leg room, entertainment, the pilot was informative throughout the flight"
Pros: "Crew was beyond standard. Very nice and friendly and always accommodating."
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian meals."
Cons: "I actually lost money because of the misinformation -- was told there was a modification on my flight details and that I had to call the Lufthansa office. I called in and was never told that anything was wrong. I kept trying to check in online and got blocked at every trial... Cut a long story short, I showed up for my Lufthansa flight to only be told I didn't have the required visa for one of my layovers... I missed my flight, got no refund for it and got zero help in finding a solution to my problem. You could do better than that, Lufthansa."
Pros: "food was very good-no plastic flatware! crew attentive, cabin temp good, great selection of movies, hot towels perfect"
Cons: "coffee awful"
Pros: "Staff attentive. Came by very frequently."
Pros: "All around wonderful trip and experience starting with the flight. The pilots and crews courtesy was fabulous. I arrived ahead of schedule by more than an hour. Thank you Lufthansa! I will be flying with you again soon."
Cons: "I had no dislikes... just a grand time..."

Pros: "Staff were all very professional and courteous. Flight on time."
Cons: "Having to sit in last row."
Pros: "Free movie. Good take off and landing by Pilot."
Cons: "Flight attendants were professional, but discourteous. It was not Luftansa as advertised but A UNited airline Plane & crew terrible ! The flight attendants Made you feel like you couldnt ask for anything extra! (Water, juice). The meal wasn't heated all the way, breakfast snack was cold. The seats seemed extra cramped no leg room. You were literally laying on the passenger next to you! They also didnt allow people with children, babies to do advanced boarding it took up so much time! I payed for extra leg room on my return flight which was cancelled by the way due to weather then they gave upgrades to others for free..! While the return flight was delayed I was kept in airport for 8hrs before they cancelled it also unpleasant! That section of the airport had no food, all United Airlines offered us while waiting was sodas! Really? not again will i fly international with UA!"
Pros: "Love the friendly staff, highly interesting entertainment and comfortable seating options."
Pros: "honestly? nothing."
Cons: "3 hours late. it was operated by united airlines, it was the first and last time that I flew them, worst of the worst!"
Pros: "Friendly staff and nice people incl Kay! She was so helpful to me as I'm traveling internationally with 2 kids under 2"
Cons: "Comfort is horrible if your not in comfort rows with extra room. The food is ok but the staff were so consistent and offered food and drinks. The airline should allow pass gets with kid/kids to get on plane earlier not with reg bording passengers. It's horrible how rude people are and impatient!! This would hwlp"
Cons: "overlay duration is too bad ....its takes 30hrs instead of 19hrs journey"
Pros: "Supportive staff"
Pros: "courtesy and attention to passenger comfort"
Cons: "Ground staff in Mumbai were hard nosed and somehwat rude during the check in process."
Cons: "Pilot did not yet to avoid turbulences, which were pretty bad. They also lost my luggage which arrived after three days."
Pros: "The business class seats are perfect, I slept a good 7 hours undisturbed, which is unbelievable for me. One crew member looked, but perhaps was not smug and cocky, as I was not awake for much of the flight to know. The meal didn’t sound appetizing so I was even more motivated to sleep sooner. Breakfast was fine."
Cons: "The service was very poor, they did not have toothbrush or toothpaste not even ear buds and eye band. No attendent showed up even after calling several times."
Pros: "Everything was very nice. Flight was on time. The staff was nice. Food was good. Seats could have more space. But overall was great."
Pros: "Comfortable and convenient"
Pros: "Being assigned seat only ten minutes before take off is not ideal"
Pros: "food was pasta only no choice"
Pros: "Great service and good very friendly"
Pros: "We came with a baby and were assigned a bassinet seat. The service was great. The food was excellent. The seats were comfortable."
Pros: "The crew were nice. They tried to make everyone happy even though the flight was fully booked."
Cons: "My seat was terrible ( middle all the way in the back and the people next to me occupied both my armrests so i had almost no room to stretch so couldn't relax or sleep at all)) and the food was gross i got food poisoning from the last snack ( turkey sandwich ) and they didn't have any ginger ale."
Pros: "I was not worse than other airlines."
Cons: "It was not better than other airlines."
Pros: "Flight took off a couple of hours late due to problems in Frankfurt airport but everyone worked to help us with connecting flights."
Pros: "Got us there"
Pros: "Significantly more room, width and leg room, with footrests, business class wide arm rests, courtesy kit (socks, mask, toothbrush)... Great entertainment system and large screen. Beats the heck out of united and american!"
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful"
Cons: "First flight was canceled. We were rerouted through to Philadelphia to London to Frankfurt and on to Salzburg. Luggage lost in London still waiting on that."
Pros: "Don't know how I was upgraded to economy plus from Bom to Fra which helped."
Cons: "When checked in I was given two boarding cards for the same segment and nothing from Fra to Ord. Fortunately I noticed otherwise I would have been in a soup from Fra to Ord. This was highly irresponsible action. I had requested for a isle seat and was told that it has been done but from Fra to Ord I was in a lot of trouble as the person on Isle seat was arthritic and had a great difficulty in getting up."
Cons: "The seats werent very comfortable and there was a BIG language barrier with the crew."
Pros: "That we had a selection of movies to watch."
Cons: "Got stuck in the last row in the middle of the plane. They ran out of turkey for dinner and got stuck with awful pasta. They should leave that to Italian chefs to make. I am glad I packed some snacks so that I could have something to eat besides the roll, dessert and small salad. The seats didn't recline fully like the seats in front of us so we were really cramped. They also skipped my husband when they came around with the drinks... we had to hit the call button. I will book my next trip with another airline."
Cons: "Lufthansa canceled without warning and offered zero options. They even turned off their phones to the entire public. Will never fly Lufthansa again. Ever."
Pros: "THE WOMAN AT THE BAGGAGE TRANSFER DESK WHO FOUND MY PHONE AND WAITED FOR ME AT MY GATE FOR 30 MINUTES TO RETURN MY PHONE. SHE WAS THE BEST!! The inflight entertainment. The pilot making up time for the one hour delay in takeoff for fog."
Cons: "The plane is old and in need of replacement or total interior redo. The walk to the gate from the terminal is forever and once you are arrive there isn't anything to do but wait. The crew was OK but nothing more than doing the basics. While steerage is not expected to be comfortable a redo or new plane would make it better."
Pros: "I really liked the movies and games available during the flight. That makes the time go by a lot faster. The crew did a great job and Inhave no complaints about boarding or any of the main aspects of the flight."
Cons: "I don't think this only goes for only this flight but all long flights. The chairs are not made for sitting long periods of time. I could not get an isle seat, so if I needed to stretch my legs it was a hassle. The food wasn't awesome, but it was edible. It was warm and all in all pretty good considering it was airplane food."
Pros: "Variety of Movies"
Cons: "parallel boarding of business and economy class, poor entertainment system quality. Functionality limited and even after 2 times rebooting no big improvement."
Pros: "They actually feed you good food and the crew's service is very fast. In-flight entertainment was wonderful."
Pros: "The goose dinner was good. Tthe attendants brought plenty of water throughout the flight"
Cons: "The announcements were hard to understand."
