Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Nothing. The best airline I've flown across the board."
Pros: "The flight waited for us as transit after delay of the firs flight from Munich"
Cons: "1. the food was a disaster. 2. The noise on the flight from a group of passengers was terrible, no way to sleep or rest. 3. The staff did not try to calm the people the steward laugh me when I complained.."
Cons: "I had paid a little extra to have a seat in the back of the plane going to Greece and returning also. I was under the assumption the extra charge would give me a seat with only one extra person next to me. On both flights to and from JFK I was seated in a row with 3 seats and not the last row as promised. Just wondering if a refund for the extra charge would be possible."
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "See above."

Cons: "Cramped in economy"

Pros: "Staff was polite. Offering water once in a while was nice. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The promotional video for Swiss Air was way too long. Should have a way to bypass it. I understand being forced to watch the safety video but the promotional video is annoying."

Pros: "Good seats - comfortable Attentive service"
Cons: "Found my business class seat given away to a lady with a dog. Mine was window but with extra table next to aisle. She had aisle seat but with exactly the same configuration. Idea was she would place the dog on the table space next to her seat. It would be exactly the same for both seats. Do not know what they were thinking. There were other business class seats on the other side that had the table space ext to the window away from the aisle. That would make sense for the lady with dog. Business class was full and I was the last to get on, 45 minute connection in Zurich from terminal A to E, my seat was given. But as I objected, they moved the dog lady and gave me back my seat. But they never asked a person in the seat that would have made sense to give her to trade seats."
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed, everything else about it was great! Newer, more comfortable seating than the plane from the US to Europe, excellent food and service, no complaints about the in-air experience."
Cons: "The flight was delayed most likely because of inefficiencies in the passport check / boarding process, some people got confused, waited in the boarding line, then had to go back in queue in the passport check line. Last person walked into the plane 10 min after the scheduled departure time, as a result the airport delayed our departure by 50 more minutes."

Cons: "Food wasn't the usual Swiss quality this time. Are seats getting smaller? Very cramped, no leg room (I am a 164 cm, 53 kg female).

Pros: "As mentioned in my previous review about Edelweiss, I couldn't be any happier with the experience. I always fly back home (Zurich to NY) with Swiss airlines. I love the flight, crew and their performance. They make sure that you're comfortable and accommodate you to your every need. SWISS and Edelweiss will always be preferred by myself and I'll make sure to always recommend you to family and friends. Thank you for your outstanding and remarkable service."

Pros: "I liked nearly the entire experience. The food was first rate. The crew was friendly & helpful. The seats were so comfortable and the entertainment was plentiful."

Pros: "Price and crew friendliness"
Pros: "great food staff /crew very nice"
Cons: "snacks more tv entertanment"
Cons: "I booked my flight via Kayak through Airfare.com. Never again. They are rude and their rebooking policies are absurd. And there are hundreds of complaints online reporting the same thing. Swiss Air should not do business with them and neither should Kayak."

Pros: "In time Nice service Delicious Meals Great Movies"
Cons: "No priority for boarding with Children No internet on Board"
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "-Puking Child - Puke stayed in the aisle for about 30 minutes and then when the plane landed there was more and it wasn't cleaned up - SO much turbulence for 3 hours and no announcement was made about it. Was slightly concerning. Terrible turbulence"
Pros: "Wonderfully nice crew. Food is pretty decent even with Economy. Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "Their iPhone App (and to a lesser extend the website too) is awfully slow. It takes forever to gather booking info and check in. Sometimes the boarding pass just don't get delivered to my SMS. Small selection of shows on personal screen. ZRH-HKG flights don't even have touch screens, and the UI is very antiquated."
Pros: "as I'm pretty sure they were americans... at least some of them. However, I hope they were on the tail end of some million mile juggernaught to explain their rude treatment of the customers."
Cons: "Boarding was not done by row and led to delays and discomfort. The crew was rude and not helpful. At one point, a sick passenger was requesting help for what seemed like 25 minutes before they got back to her. The plane was still dirty from the last flight. I'd give Swiss a pass next time...not really a pleasant flight experience over all even if they got us there in the end."
Cons: "not enough leg room"
Pros: "Pleasant flight attendants, great landing, on time, good entertainment selection, very nice and smooth flight"
Cons: "They didn't help me with weelqear i have to walk"
Pros: "CHECKING & SEATING At checking I was able to pick a seat near the exit doors which gave a me a lot more extra room for my legs without paying extra which was much appreciated. LUGGAGE DELIVERY Luggage was delivered in a timely manner which was greatly appreciated after a long flight."
Cons: "BOARDING: It was a mess, everybody was called to board at the same time which slowed down the seating process in the place. CREW: Because of certain food intolerances I asked for a special meal and fortunately the meal had been prepared but the crew was not aware it was for me and first gave me the regular meal. Both for lunch and afternoon snack! I would appreciate they know my specifics and don't bring me food I cannot eat. ENTERTAINMENT: I recently made the acquisition of a new and very comfortable pair of noise cancelling headphones which I was excited to use but couldn't because the audio plug required two jacks! I have not seen that in a place for quite some time."
Cons: "My regularly scheduled flight was inexplicably canceled with no information forcing me to delay my plans."
Cons: "Just great"
Cons: "It was fine, just tiring due to the length of the flight."
Pros: "everything was great. Crew was very nice. good service. good food. Even bathrooms were located in the basement separately, nice and bigger than usual airline bathrooms."
Cons: "my TV screen didn't work. Long 9.5hr trip without entertainment."
Pros: "Lufthansa is always high quality"
Cons: "I dislike how one must stow the entertainment system so early before landing"
Pros: "The staff on board the plane was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the flight! Food was delishious!"
Cons: "The ticket kiosk would not read passports. It was so frustrating to have to continuously try over and over again. With no attendant at the location and a long line, I wasn’t sure how to proceed. There were plenty of people having the same difficulty. It took about 12 minutes to occomplish a minut long job."
Pros: "Seat comfort and entertainment Option for WIFI and to charge was very nice add"
Cons: "Lost our luggage"
Pros: "Great crew and plane"
Cons: "Inconvenient terminal from connecting flight. Boarding procedure was a zoo"
Cons: "The airport pretty much shut down for awhile so some flights were canceled. Due to the number of people attempting to check in and go through security, I missed my plane and was rebooked in an economy seat. These glitches occur but one would expect Lufthansa to have had a plan to deliver clear directions."
Pros: "Relaxed trip. We were well cared for. Again very good staff"
Pros: "The Germans are known for their efficiency and Lufthansa followed through with that. From the check-in process to cabin service, all was top notch. As I was sitting near the front of economy, any "extra" economy plus meals were handed out as to avoid waste. I was the recipient of a delicious Caprese salad. A nice treat."
Pros: "The service."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised to be offered an after dinner brandy, or a Bailey's. O"
Cons: "On both flights. The ear phone did not work correctly. Minor issue."
Pros: "On time, smooth fly , good food in premium economy."
Cons: "Too warm in premium economy section."
Cons: "We landed an hour later than planned with no warning, I missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "The fact that the Crew was kind n helpful and we landed safely and on time. Like the security was great. Overall it was good!"
Cons: "The boarding Crew treated the passengers unfairly...your staff should learn how to board a plain...by starting: women with children n handicapped people first, the business/first class, the economy passengers...that's how you do it...there was no organization to board the plane and the ticket agent was wrong on the advertisements instructions. Get rid of cheap wine, our tickets are very expensive..you can afford good wine. I got a headache with your cheap wine... Your also not allowed to do early check in...with your system."
Pros: "Lufthansa did well with handling a very difficult situation with courtesy, attention, and offering of amenities."
Cons: "Through no fault of Lufthansa, because of problems at JFK, our flight was turned around and returned to Munich after two hours of travel."
Cons: "Everything was great except the seat is about an inch too close"
Pros: "Multiple bathrooms located downstairs. Modern new plane"
Cons: "Movies were old. No real new releases. Food was terrible"
Pros: "Good overall experience"
Pros: "The food was terrific. The in flight entertainment system was one of the best I've experienced."
Cons: "The online check-in using my wife's iPad's browser in a don't have a printer scenario (which is the case when you're not home), was difficult to navigate. My wife wound up with my boarding pass on her phone and not one for herself. We did get our boarding passes at the kiosk, but then mine had my TSA-precheck but my wife's didn't and she had to go through an extra layer of security (near the gate area) because of this at the Munich airport."
Cons: "There were no options for food, I was just told that there was only pasta left while the passenger next to me ate chicken. This was totally unacceptable. I only hope that this was my last trip with Lufthansa."
Cons: "See comments above."
Pros: "Service and comfort"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good food, free wine, comfy (as can be expected) seats AND AMAZING LANDING into Munich. OH! Good movie selection too!"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Everyone kind of ran up."
Pros: "The Lufthansa crew in Munich was very helpful when my boarding pass would not go through - I was not told I needed a new pass for that flight (as the first one had been cancelled and rebooked: 2 Air Berlin flights). No one was of help until this point, and the Lufthansa crew even offered to check on my baggage for us only to notice it never left Berlin; we didn't get it for 3 days. This did not surprise me because last time I flew Air Berlin for an 8 day cycling & camping trip, I didn't see my bike for 5 days (you can imagine this sort of ruins the entire point of the trip). After reading a lot of complaints with Air Berlin and never hearing back from their customer service (ever) after numerous forms filled out, I knew checking our bags with Air Berlin from the start would mean we wouldn't see them in New York. I even said to the Air Berlin employee at check in that I refused to check my bag because of my past experience and he "assured" me my bag would be at JFK when I got there. Ha. It was nice to see the Lufthansa crew shocked at how poorly this trip home was working out for my husband and I."
Cons: "After the cancelled flight, we were very disappointed to be rebooked with Air Berlin. We do not want to fly Lufthansa if they are so closely associated with Air Berlin, and will tell our friends the same."
Cons: "The plane was half way full, i had the seat in the economy section same like a big guy, at one point i asked the flight attendant if i can change my seat to another economy seat (I didn't want a free upgrade) because the guy in my right could fit in his seat with the arm rest down and it was getting uncomfortable for me. She told me if i want a upgrade, witch I refuse to get and didn't help me in any way with the problem that i had. I think for cases like this even though it's an economy seat it still cost 750$ and for a 9h flight witch transformed in a 14h flight because weather condition and fueling problems, flight attendants should be more mindful with the guest confort rather than upselling. Lufthansa it's a geat company with great airplanes but i think that in order to get people to come back you should treat people in the economy class like normal people that pay a price nothing close to the word economy"
Pros: "The flight staff was excellent!"
Pros: "Friendly service, everything very organized, calm atmosphere on board"
Cons: "Entertainment options pretty limited, personnel at check in for flight rather rude"
Pros: "Very polite and attentive service. Took off and arrived on time, Plane seems new and clean."
Cons: "Seat 31G had extra legroom. That was great, but no one told me that it would be a few inches narrower than normal economy. The elbow rest had a single layer and thus couldn't be shared with the adjacent passenger. I'm 220 lbs and he was around the same size. I literally spent the entire flight with my arms crossed to avoid pressing into him. That seat is meant for kids or very thin people. There should be a warning."
Pros: "Great airplane seats in Prem. Economy."
Cons: "Information access to cancelled flights was horrible. Impossible to get assistance."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight and I spent 7-8 hours on phone trying to resolve."
Pros: "Great leg room for economy class, polite and courteous staff"
Pros: "Almost everything, the flight crew was friendly and timely, the movie selection was great, the flight left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "The temperature near my seat was very uncomfortable, to the point where I was sweating for most of my ride. The passenger next to me, also complained to me as well."
Pros: "Overall a pretty good flight."
Cons: "The in-flight wasn't working, so no movies on a nine hour flight."
Pros: "The food was good compare to other airlines & the service is good too. I would like to recomemd.for my friends if they ask me which airline to choice."
Cons: "Check in only before 24hours before the flight is not good enough since so many people are book."
Cons: "Child car seat lost although checked with luggage."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and accommodating"
Cons: "Most of the announcements were hard to hear and understand"
Pros: "As I noted above, both LH crews worked well. They were very professional, spoke languages as needed, accommodated passengers' requests, served edible food (mostly) and were visible and available throughout. The long-distance Airbus plane was comfortable enough. I like the idea of putting all the bathrooms downstairs ... but ..."
Cons: "... putting all the bathrooms downstairs might create difficulties for handicapped passengers. I am not sure how this is handled; perhaps help is provided, or perhaps there is one bathroom at flight-level."
Pros: "The flight crew was wonderful! Friendly and really attentive the whole trip!"
Cons: "The only suggestion I would have is that the entertainment options could be a bit more updated. The movie selection was not as good as I have experienced it on other flights (--- other airlines have a better 'new release' selection)."
Pros: "They had lots of movies and TV options to choose from."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was very poor. Frankly a pizza snack in place of supper is not what I expect on a cross-Atlantic flight."
Pros: "There are some lounge seats for sleeping. There are power ports next to these seats"
Cons: "€5 for a Fanta in the airport. Food choices are limited and expensive. Next time I'll buy food in Sweden. Shockingly, it's cheaper"
Pros: "I liked food, entertainment on board, atmosphere, professional crew, arrival on time"
Pros: "Excellent food great crew nice plain"
Pros: "The TV system"
Cons: "Can't check in on your website"
Pros: "Did not make the flight."
Cons: "I wish there was more of advance notice on this flight, instead it just gave us 23 hour reminder. We had booked this flight a year ago but we could not make this and the 23 hours was too short of a notice."
Pros: "The crew was perfect - nice and very helpful. I like the restroom area on this plane much better than on other kinds of aircraft."
Cons: "I definitely didn't like how Lufthansa online booking assigns seats. Why are family members who booked their tickets as one order getting seats apart from each other even after online check-in and seat selection? We had a very bad experience with this."
Pros: "Our connecting flight to Munich was late, but Lufthansa had a van waiting to collect us, usher us through passport control and get us to our flight to New York in time. That was a tremendous help and took a lot of stress off of the trip."
Pros: "I liked how generous they were with food and drinks"
Cons: "Free WiFi could have made the flight a lot better"
Cons: "KLM lost my suitcase and did not deliver it until three days later... They refused to compensate me for having delivered the bag with broken articles inside (A pair of Rayban Wayfarers!)"
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."
Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"
Cons: "Crew members in Amsterdam were very rude and disrespectful"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"
Cons: "The coffe and breakfast."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Working wifi would be good. Better A/C. More comfortable seats"
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Passenger who needed wheelchair assistance it took KLM 50 minutes to get him off plane which delayed our boarding. KLM not prepared to handle passengers with needs"
Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"
Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."
Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."
Pros: "Overall KLM experience is good"
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time 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."
Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"
Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "The attention and service!! Excellent. It was my birthday and KLM the head purser surprised me with 2 bottles of bubbles and a handwritten birthday card KlM and the crew of this flight thank you very much !"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."
Cons: "Despised the cold temperature and cold draft in world business even with all vents shut off...gave me a head cold. Boarding was disorganized. There was no sense of direction; ergo, everyone was jumping in."
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."
Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"
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: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Cons: "The 767 is configured oddly and th business class seats are so narrow it feel like you are sleeping in a coffin"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."
Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."
Pros: "The flight was great."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Pros: "They were awesome."
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."
Pros: "The aircraft."
Cons: "Boarding crew in Warsaw very unprofessional, rude and unhelpful! No info, no communication at the gate! Crew joking about personal stuff, on personal phones, ignoring passengers! I actually made a video of them, shocking behavior!"
Pros: "Crew as great! Good seats and good entertainment"
Cons: "Cleaner bathrooms"
Cons: "Because LOT flight from Lviv was late we did not make the connecting flight to New York and had to spend the night in Warsaw."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours and there was no communication at all. Our questions were ignored."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "We took off and landed an hour late than planned. Since we came-in late we waited additional two hours until we were able to get off"
Pros: "The entire cabin crew was excellent. Service fabulous. Requested vegetarian meal. It was supurb. Very unusual for flight from. Eastern European countries They exceeded my expectations . Thank you"
Cons: "Boarding from. EWR WAS lousy. Flight going to Warsaw was delayed to start with . They did not announced . Only shown on screen. They have to definitely announce to the passengers THEY WILL BOARD AS PER GROUP NO. . NEED NOT MAKE A BIG LINE JUST RELAX ON THE CHAIR . PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF STANDING in the line for a long time May be they need to have more group Nos to easy facilitate boarding . This is only a suggestion. If they want to improve customer experience and travel again with them"
Pros: "The price was ok for last minute"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess no order by back and window seats first"
Pros: "The VEG meal (non-dairy) I was served was fresh and delicious to eat. Flight attendants pleasant, professional and service-oriented. My luggage made it to NYC/JFK without any problems."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment offered a very conventional set of movies from which to select."
Cons: "Departure late about 4 hrs, little information along the way. More waiting at arrival for gate to open up due to late arrival. Seats are not comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The wait until we could get off the plane after landing due to the fact that there weren't any gates available."
Cons: "Going to board the plane and they told a group of like 30 of us we had been selected for random security check. So obviously it took a long time to get all those people through the check and we departed very late. Then sat on the tarmac for an hour and forty five minutes. The pilot said it would be 15 minutes and then never gave another update beyond that, which made it much worse."
Pros: "I have been flying with them for the past 16 years(economy seats), and I have to say that their service,and comfort of overnight flights have improved tremendously! Partially due to the fact that they have 787 Dreamliners now, in which the seats are wider and are reclining more than before, the leg room is bigger, the air quality better. The crew members are very professional,not overly sweet,yet caring and understanding,especially when you are flying with small children.As to those complaining about overcharged luggage- read the rules people! If you go over the maximum limit of 50lb for a check in, let's say 2lb,they won't charge you,but don't expect them to close their eyes when your luggage weighs almost double that!"
Cons: "The food is ok, nicely packed, but even if you don't like it they have extra options to purchase for a small price."
Pros: "Modern aircraft, food, extraordinary fligjt attendants"
Cons: "I wish that had wifi."
Pros: "Friendly professional crew. Clean aircraft. Very good ticket price."
Cons: "Hard to check in online from hotel in Munich. Hard and confusing where and how to check in at Munich airport and very time consuming. Having to pay $20 per bag but not at the check in counter but at another counter and then at the gate counter being call up to get checked that we did pay the $20 for the bags. Made me feel 3rd class."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "It was very stuffy and warm on the plane."
Pros: "When we got to the airport on the way back home, they couldn't find our tickets. I had online tickets and confirmation, but we were still not on the flight list. We had to go to the ticket counter for them to clear it up and put us back on the flight. The flight itself was not bad. The flight attendants are a bit rude and condescending. The seats and entertainment was not bad."
Cons: "1. Cancelled our outgoing flight hours before it was set to leave; notified us via email; barely got re-booked via different airlines and had to take 3 different flights to reach out destination; missed the 2nd flight because LOT put us on a flight that was departing 30 minutes before out 1st flight arrived. 2. When we got another 2nd flight, we arrived at our final destination without our bags. LOT assured us that our bags were on our flight before we boarded but calling and confirming that they were able to transfer our bags (only had 40 minutes between flights), but of course, it was a complete lie. We did not get our bag until the next day in the evening over 24 hours later. At that point I was happy they found them and gave them to us. 3. Turns out, they cancel flights pretty often and they also book people on transfer flights that are too close for people to make it. We traveled with a handful of other passengers that had the same experience and people were in tears about their horrible travel experience. 4. Warsaw Airport - they only have 5 passport control officers clearing travelers and because they don;t have lines or any type of organization of these travelers, the lines our out of control. People are pushing each other, crying because they are missing flights or not feeling well because of no air and all the pushing and shoving. I was pregnant standing in the line for over 40 minutes. They would not let pregnant passengers or passengers with kids with them pass in their disabled line. Only people in the wheelchairs were allowed to pass there. Horrible airport and even more horrible airline! PLEASE SPARE YOURSELF AND DO NOT RUIN YOUR VACATION."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "At boarding we were told we needed an additional security clearance "that way". When we searched for it and couldn't find it, we asked two different employees and they didn't know or offer to help. We finally found it but it wasn't a good experience. And finding out at boarding time was not helpful."
Cons: "There was a delay at Warsaw Airport for almost 3 Hours I arrived home 2.00 Am I missed a family wedding that night"
Cons: "Unable to choose seat at ticket purchase."
Cons: "Many people on this flight were bothered by the fact that their families were split up all over the airplane and no one could sit together. During boarding there were groups of people who had all been split up and were desperately trying to switch seats with others. I was traveling with a 15 year old, and even though she is not a small child it was very nerve wrecking to be seated 20 rows behind her, not being able to keep an eye on her (even more so because she gets car sick and has thrown up on airplanes before). I don't think I've ever flown where my group was not at least seated in pairs. This was very disappointing."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was ok. They usually charge for any alcoholic beverages, though."
Cons: "Extremely rude staff (allowed a passenger to almost break my hand luggage with hers, and literally laughed at my concern,) kept us on plane for 2+ hours with minimal info given on the problem, then de-planed and kept us waiting at Warsaw airport for another 2 hours (no food, water or even a manager appeared until the end of that 4 hours, by the way, and only after a screaming mob of passengers formed,) then kept us on the new plane for nearly another 2 hours. This made for an approximate 6 hour delay, with minimal comfort, food, water, info or sympathy throughout, nor an offer to switch our flights and/or provide night accommodation due to the 5+ hour delay on this evening flight (as is within our passenger rights.) The plane finally arrived to JFK way after 1 a.m., which completely ruined weekend work and social plans, not to mention how exhausting and disrespectful of an experience it was. PLEASE NOTE THAT EVERY SINGLE OF THE FOUR LOT FLIGHTS I'D UNDERTAKEN THAT WEEK WERE DELAYED IN A SIMILAR FASHION - AS IN, WITH LITTLE INFO OR EXCUSE. No, thanks, Lot - and you should refund us all."
Pros: "Pleasant personal, great service!"
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment were of good quality"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 40 min; after landing the plane was sitting on the field forever; during descent, my ears started aching, and I think I got some kind of vestibular system damage, possibly from an overly fast descent. Not good."
Pros: "Airline staff were very agreeable. There was a delay in boarding, but we were kept up to date with what the issue was and how long it would delay our boarding procedures."
Cons: "Delay in boarding (not the airlines fault, I am sure)."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly. On this flight we had a delicious meal, snacks, drinks, refreshing towels. What an great experience after flying in the US where all these services have disappeared for bottom line profits."
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. food was free"
Cons: "Then the flight from warsaw to JFK was fine, but when we landed there was only 10 minutes for me to get to my next flight and i asked the attendant if she could call my gate ahead and tell them I'm trying to make it, and she grunted and told me to sit back down. Then i proceeded to go to baggage claim where my bag never showed up and when I finally saw that it wasn't showing up I sprinted to my next flight and got to the door 15 seconds after it closed. Then i had to spend the night in NYC and was unable to go to buffalo unitl the morning after having spent already the whole day in the airport since my first flight didn't take off until about 5 hours after it was scheduled. And now I still do not have my bag, and jet blue says they never got it from LOT airlines"
Cons: "The crew had everyone measure their suitcases and pay for overweight, which significantly delayed boarding."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "There is basically no room for passengers left on those airplanes, it's a disgrace. The food is a joke."
Pros: "Service, attention, every single detail was perfect while the flight."
Cons: "Nothing to say at this point"
Cons: "15 minute delay waiting for a gate to become available after taxiing to the terminal at JFK. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "Great crew and the flight was very nice. Food was decent and boarding was done as quickly and orderly as possible."
Cons: "While this is not the airline's fault. The guy next to me was too big for the seat and his stench was overwhelming."
Pros: "The food and service was very good."
Cons: "The seating arrangement. Unless you have an isle seat,you have to climb over someone to get to the isle."
Pros: "Nice with seats"
Cons: "The announcements in English were not loud enough"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Attitude of the Stewart was terrible she was a little cocky and didn't appreciate her attitude"
Pros: "Flight attendant made me a cup of decaf coffee. It was really good. And she found artificial sweetener."
Cons: "Boarding announcements in Warsaw for the flight to New York were ONLY in Polish. This left many passengers confused. I could understand this if the flight were to a Polish destination. During the flight, intercom announcements overrode the Entertainment System at FULL VOLUME - EVERY TIME. it is as though they wanted to maximize our discomfort. I would not fly with Lot again."
Pros: "I only liked that I got to watch a few movies to kill the worst experience I had !"
Cons: "I didn't like that I got no food I asked for a water bottle never got it! I was hungry the entire flight I was only lucky to be close to the bathroom"
Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "After the flight was delayed for an hour several days in advance, I thought it could still be OK. But when they kept us at the gate for another 1.5 hours without any information as to why we were not boarding, I just about lost it. Delays happen. That is not the problem. But the staff was rude and did not inform us about when or if we would be leaving. When asked about missed connections, said they know nothing and the transfer desk will handle that. I was travelling with my cat, so for me it was super stressful. Once we did arrive to JFK, there were no more flights to RDU that night and it took forever and then some to get me a hotel that would accommodate a cat. Just fly another airline."
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "The movie selection was poor"
Cons: "Extra baggage payment need to be more efficient. It should be 1 stop to check in bags and pay for extra bags and overweight bags."
Cons: "Loud passengers no crew attention."
Cons: "Flight attendamt woke me up to straighten my seat so person behind me can eat more comfortably. I have trouble flying and took 3 sleeping pills so I can fly comfortably and now the woman woke me up and I couldn't fall back asleep so she can eat? So horrible. 30 screaming kids on the flight. They served food while I slept so I called the flight attendant 7 times to now bring me food since she woke me up. She never showed up. So no only was I now up, couldn't fall back asleep because of the screaming children but I am SO glad the person behind me are her mean comfortably"
Pros: "Fly itself but waiting at all too long"
Cons: "Long wait till start and long wait for arrival...at all 6hours waiting inside the plane"
Cons: "toilet cover was broken no hold up"
Pros: "Food and stewardess."
Cons: "It's my last time with lot. They should learn some manners and not to try every possible way to get money from passengers. Shame on you LOT."
Pros: "Ground and flight crews were very friendly and helpful; very good service. I would definitely recommend LOT Polish for your travels."
Cons: "The service quality lags behind other companies"
Pros: "Food, Crew"
Cons: "Very few choices of movies Boarding at JFK on my flight to Warsaw was deleted and disorganized by some American clerk with stron Indian accent ,hard to understand."
Pros: "Nice a polite crew, but not much more."
Cons: "After hour or so entertaining system shut down. On the board was ten or so mothers with babies that were crying all the time. Was it suppose to replace missing entertainment?..lol! After landing we had to wait 45 min for free gate. "Dream-liner" in economy class is terrible!"
Pros: "The crew was accommodating. There were friendly and helpful. My upgraded food was good and served hot."
Cons: "The tray on the upgraded meal was too large and difficult to handle especially in serving and picking up"
Pros: "FYI this was actually an American Airlines flight (AA 104) not BA. Anyway I love those 777-300ER’s, they are huge with great up to date ambient lighting, excellent, outstanding entertainment , and I had the whole row to myself. I often take this flight when flying home from LHR to JFK. 5 stars!"
Cons: "5 stars all around"
Pros: "Amazing crew , very accommodating , and friendly , professional, excellent!"
Cons: "Perhaps slightly better food, however choice of liquor & beer was excellent with tremendous service. 5 star service across the board."
Pros: "We had a long delay that the crew did their best to mitigate while still on the ground in Heathrow, and the Captain invited children to come up and tour the cockpit while we waited! Things like that alleviate any anger and frustration we may have had, and the flight was excellent overall."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly."
Cons: "I wish I’d have an aisle seat, but flight was full."
Pros: "Crew was mostly attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Had the boarding queues setup and when they got to group 5 they flipped the sign and those of us in front had to go in the back. Once we were in the main queue they opened the 5-9 queue for some privileged traveler and then left it open allowing the back of the queue to become the front."
Pros: "Food was great, staff was so sweet and patient"
Cons: "Never on time, always late, always either missing my connections or running throug the airport"
Pros: "prompt, good service and food"
Cons: "pasta was too salty"
Cons: "Most passengers had to pay for any food even water. No plugs at the seats."
Cons: "Many cancellations and airline lost my luggage"
Cons: "The chair in front of mine was broken or worn out so that it declined alarmingly far. It felt like the gentleman in front me had his head in my lap. My tray table was also broken so that it listed dangerously and I had to prop it on my arm rest."
Pros: "How short the flight was and the fact that I had an empty seat next to me."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The crew was great. My meal was good too!"
Cons: "the older plane did not have personal air vents and it was hotter then I would have liked. Also being in the last row of a section allows us not recline as much while the people in front could recline more, which made for a cramp feeling during the flight."
Pros: "everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Not enough choices for movies or tv shows."
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "We had ONE customer service rep in Heathrow who was incredibly helpful and tried to help get us home. She was wonderful."
Cons: "Their delayed flight from Milan to London caused us to miss our flight from London to NY, and thus our flight from NY to Denver, which was standby. When we explained how difficult it would be to catch another flight to Denver from NY with it being the weekend, and attempting to get a flight to another airport with higher chances of getting us home, their customer service rep informed us that as long as they 'fulfilled their contract' to get us to NY, it wasn't really their problem how we got home (or couldn't get home) after that."
Pros: "The crew were exceptionally nicer ery"
Cons: "Everything was pleasant"
Cons: "I had called vayama with whom you booked the flight, 5/28, and asked for seats together with my daughter who was, I THOUGHT, also flying on the same plane as I..I had asked the rep for a specific flight,nAA 105 and was told that it was code shared with mine, IB4611 but, when I looked at the seats 24 hours before the flight, on 6/15, I saw that I had been booked on a totally different plane and different departure terminals . The only thing similar was the departure and arrival times into JFK. I made a long distance call from the UK and got a really obnoxious rep who was very condescending, dismissive and annoyed that I couldn't understand her pronounced accent . When I said, " pardon, could you please repeat that", she was very snippy and snapped at me! No wonder they have such crappy ratings/ reviews. She was absolutely no help whatsoever after I explained that my daughter was visually impaired and HAD to be on the same flight as I, all she told me was that there was no record of the convo I had claimed to have with their rep on 5/28 and then she hung up on me. I will never use kayak again nor its outsourced affiliates . I am pissed, Weibo Benwitz"
Pros: "Having to climb upto the aircraft was somewhat inconsiderate to the elderly. I hate to think having to do this in the Winter."
Cons: "The impersonal attitude of the crew. Extremely limited leg space in the economy class."
Cons: "My flight from BWI-JFK was cancelled due to weather related issues and was rebooked to BWI-MIA-MAD, 5 hours late from my original departure and without providing any meal voucher despite asking from the agent. BWI-MIA flight was delayed due to air traffic clearance from the thunderstorm and almost missed my connection MIA-MAD by few minutes. Upon arrival in MAD, my baggage didn't make the connection and had to wait for 3 days before my baggage arrived"
Pros: "The flight left relatively on time and arrived only ten minutes late. The crew were as friendly as they were totally unaccommodating."
Cons: "In coach, every refreshment costs money, even non-alcoholic beverages, yet all four of my (valid and working before and after) cards were declined, and like all airlines nowadays, they refuse cash. The flight attendant was totally unsurprised, and mentioned they'd been "working on fixing that for a while." Every other airline I've flown, when they can't process your card, they accept it as their issue and just give you the beverage. BA were quite happy to leave me sitting thirsty without even a water for the two hour flight, with nary a apology for their technical issue. A rather basic plane, without entertainment, nor internet."
Pros: "Customer service."
Cons: "Embracardo plane is small."
Pros: "It was wery nice flight"
Pros: "Quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "The Aer Lingus flight was operated by British Airways. But BA decided not to seat Aer Lingus passengers."
Pros: "Nothing they cancelled flights"
Cons: "They counselled flights"
Pros: "Pilot was nice when he told us hehad to sit on ground for hours and taxi on landing for Another hour"
Cons: "Horrible seats, extremely delayed. Never buy a hacker fare again. Suitcases are literally locked in customs at JFK HP airport for indeterminate time period. Weather wasn't their fault but they should have had green undo staff to help and move people onward."
Pros: "The seates were nice and plush. The journey wasn't bumpy at all, and the pilot was funny. He made a fun comment saying 'he had someplace to be in New York so he will get us there as quickly as possible.' :P The crew was friendly and sweet."
Cons: "There was no food ! I assumed a flight from the west coast to the east coast would atleast provide with some food ! But nada. It bugged me more because I had to catch a another flight from new York to London. Other than that, guess it was pretty okay."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight and experience was horrible"
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "Seats great"
Cons: "The crew serving our area were terrible. Don was very rude to my elderly mother. There was a female attendant with long blond hair who was rude to another woman who was making a kindly statement. I would not choose American Airlines again given another choice."
Pros: "Red eyes can be daunting , but the comfort of the seating, blankets, entertainment and food let my adult children and I know vacation had begun"
Pros: "The Entertainment options. OUTSTANDING"
Pros: "This flight was very quick and the crew was quite nice. Overall decent flying experience."

Cons: "See above post"
Pros: "Loaded quickly, crew was nice"
Cons: "No personal tv, small seat, small seatbelt."
Pros: "Overall a good trip!"
Cons: "Almost broke my finger trying to change the menu on the screen. The snack coming back toward Philadelphia, is really not very good. One should have a choice of yogurt or breakfast bar. The flatbread with weird combination of cheese, peppers etc after flying for 8 hours is just not good for any stomach."
Pros: "Ease of location of airport"
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly and responsive comp Red wine"
Cons: "Mayo on sandwich should be in a packet on the side allergic to msyonsise"
Pros: "Professional flight crew"
Cons: "Horrible boarding experience at Reagan...will never use this airport again if I have other options. Airport staff were not professional."
Pros: "It was a typical short duration flight"
Cons: "I think it is outrageous to charge for early seat selection. We made our flight arrangements months in advance and I prefer to select my seats at the time of booking. We waited until check-in to make seat selections as a result. I can understand if you are upgrading your seats but for general booking that simply seems dumb. I also had a run-in with the ticket agent about my ski equipment. They wanted to charge me for 2 bags for my ski bag and boot bag. I persisted and they granted the accommodation. Every airline that I have flown to Europe in the past over the last 12 years have considered the 2 bags as 1 since they are connected and combined weighed less than 50 lbs. The ticket agent was polite, but I do not feel I should have had to lobby to get what is customary."
Cons: "The flight attendants treated me fine, but they were being extremely rude toward a man near me, and it didn't look like he was asking for it, so that rubbed me the wrong way."
Pros: "Was cancelled after sitting on plane for 2 hours with no details."
Cons: "Lack of detail and cancellation."
Pros: "It was our first time flying with this airline, and we had a wonderful experience. We would love flying with British airline again. Wonderful food, excelent attention and very comfortable sit. Thank you so much for having made our trip unforgettable."
Pros: "Comfortable, well organized, nice personnel, good food and wine."
Cons: "Many new films didn't play on the entertainment system."
Pros: "The return flight was on American. I liked the plane, a 777-200, it felt much roomier"
Cons: "The return flight was on American and the American flight attendants did not measure up to the British attendants on the flight from NY to Heathrow."
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant. The flight was short and unremarkable."
Cons: "The cups were at best 5oz, including cups for hot beverages. I bring my own tea when I fly. the small cups made me feel like I was wasting a tea bag."
