Missed flights due to inadequate scheduling and time between flight, late flight departures and arrivals.
Pros: "it was ok."
Cons: "Crew allowed passengers in with no masks. Why do they write a boarding time on a pass? They started 15 min later. Then, "be fast, be fast, we are behind". Plane departed 20 min late."
Pros: "Amazing crew, great customer service and high level quality plane, despite only 1 hr travel, they served small breakfast and chocolate"
Cons: "Despite the fact I bought my tickets with 1 hand luggage + 1 personal item, they forced me to dispatch my hand luggage stating flight was full, I refused and they said they could not allow me to board. Felt my rights violated, I HATE to dispatch luggage... and in the end there was space left on the airplane luggage storage areas. Not nice"
Pros: "Both the flight crew and the flight attendants were great. It was the smoothest landing I have had it quite dome time"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "Even though we flew through turbulances the crew was able to manage their tasks. Plus beautiful stewardess."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, very good food, good entertainment"
Pros: "The food was decent and on board entertainment was pretty good."
Cons: "The boarding experience was terrible. We bought new lightweight International sized carry-on bags for our family of four and packed extremely light to keep each of bags under the 8 kg weight limit for carry-on bags. The crew required us to check them anyway! So incredibly annoying."
Cons: "Same reason as above."
Cons: "Did NOT know ticket was economy light!!!! I WAS UPSET WE HAD TO PAY BAGGAGE FEE!!!!"
Pros: "Crew was great. Ice cream was fun. Swiss chocolate was a nice surprise!"
Cons: "Short flight with no entertainment, no means to charge devices."
Pros: "The buttered pretzel was nice, and different."
Cons: "The plane seats are closely spaced. I'm not heavy but am tall, so the row spacing isn't the best. The cattle call boarding is not desirable. Would prefer zone boarding."
Pros: "Crew members were polite and efficient. Entertainment system kept us engaged for our 12 hour trip."
Cons: "Horrible boarding and check-in. I fly internationally for business. This by far and away was the worst experience ever. There were 2 parts to our travels. Flight from Dusseldorf to Zurich, then Zurich to Los Angeles. in Dusseldorf, SWISS oversold the plane by 25 passengers. It was unbelievable, SWISS was randomly determining who would not fly and miss their other connecting flights in Zurich. It was by shear luck that we were able to keep our original reservation. SWISS needs to realize that this type of problem is serious. I can't imagine every flying SWISS again."
Pros: "The Boeing 777-300ER is ether new and clean."
Cons: "Seating was super tight. Once the person in front of me declined their seat the screen of the inflight entertainment system was right in front of my nose (no, my nose is not particularly long). I’ll consider flying Lufthansa or United next time - even if It required a stopover in Frankfurt or Munich."
Pros: "Everyone was so nice!"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Cons: "Almost missed my third plane, too."
Pros: "The length of the flight"
Cons: "3 of our 5 suitcases were out of luck to make it.. they damaged our 2 new luggages and the third one.. we only realized at home... now I have to deal with that too so I will be with Swiss on my mind for a while.. never again!!!"
Pros: "Professionalism of the crew"
Cons: "First there was a mechanical with plane 1. They changed our gate. Then plane 2 was too small and the flight was overbooked by 40. Then the coffee machine was leaking. Then the crew passed their legal time and had to be replaced. Bottom line almost 3 h delay after 6h in ZRH coming from Mumbai"
Pros: "Captain kept us informed regarding takeoff"
Cons: "Sitting too long"
Pros: "Very professional!"
Pros: "Good service - including snacks and drinks. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Upon boarding, the agents in the airport gave us a hard time over a bag that definitely met carry-on requirements. Almost made us check it, and then changed their mind last minute. Very unnecessary/dramatic situation, especially since we flew with that bag via carry-on multiple times (and on even smaller planes)."
Pros: "always enjoying my swiss flights. Thanks guys good job"
Pros: "Plane on time, crew friendly. Great flight!"
Pros: "Super service, nice crew. On time and flawless baggage transfer to my final destination. Could not be more pleasant experience. I would recommend travel with Swiss to all travelers. Thank you"
Pros: "Crew was courteous."
Cons: "I did not like they were so strict with the carry on luggage and stopped us at the TSA"
Pros: "Swiss chocolate is always welcome!"
Cons: "The food in economy class was one of the worst i have ever got in a flight. The chicken was not cooked completely. One of the side dishes was impossible to identify, perhaps past mixed with bread crumbs, only breadcrumbs, who knows? Ver disappointing for swiss. You were doing so much better in the past..."
Cons: "I ordered in advance 4 seats for my family, paid 100$ to SWISS 19/10/16.Boarding crew refused to give us the seats sold to us.The family was divided into 3 and 1.Only after my strong refusal, the seats were were granted.During the dispute about the provision of already purchased seats, SWISS crew member threatened to call the police. We entered the plane last.Our seats not were ready and we were forced to do it all alone.Rudeness and unprofessionalism of SWISS crew.The end of the vacation was spoiled. For what I paid to SWISS 100$ in advance(10 monthes)? I believe, if SWISS could not provide the paid service as expected, SWISS must return the money(100$) and apologize. Nobody apologized in Zurich, threatened to invite the police. Bad crew, bad service."
Cons: "Booked four flights from Zurich to Prague, but plans changed. No way to get a refund or cancellation although I tried two weeks beforehand. Disappointing to say the least."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "My wife is strictly Hindu vegetarian. We had entered her food choice at Swiss web site months before. She didn't get the food while going to Zurich and coming back to Boston. She remained hungry both ways. Although we were in business class while coming."
Cons: "They could not give me an aisle seat which I had requested. The cabin felt as if you were sitting in a tin can. Very restricted for an almost 8-hour flight. Plus arriving in Athens I discovered that my bag was nowhere to be found. I am still waiting to hear from Swiss about my lost valise..."
Pros: "Everything ran like clockwork"
Cons: "1stly the lady at the check in was not nice [ i should have gotten her name -] she was rude and quite 'authoritarian' which is uncalled for- when you have paid an expensive ticket are just trying to check in. then I checked an extra bag - and could not pay where i checked in. i had to go to another counter to pay - there was a line and it took a good few extra minutes - and i still had to get thru security. if you can pay at the check in counter this would avoid this extra step. i was really not happy about it swiss air needs better efficiency and better customer service"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight overall. Made a long flight seem not so bad."
Cons: "Over 1h delay Horrible sandwich Very rude staff"
Pros: "I don't think I'd ever experienced such a friendly and empathetic crew."
Cons: "Security was a disaster in Amsterdam. Lines were long and they were checking everything - e.g. My bag had to be screened 2x because of my Kindle, which never happens. But the crew was Extremely accommodating and helpful."
Pros: "fast, all good"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "Boarding and staff okay"
Cons: "Terrible plane ; no room , the most miserable flight we have ever been on"
Pros: "Seat spacing better on the short flight than the long flight -- where is the Swiss logical thinking ---- apparently this is a myth"
Cons: "Swiss boarding is a Charlie Foxtrot"
Pros: "Brand new plane, with ultra modern seating. We had a lot of room."
Cons: "We sat in the plane for 40 minutes before takeoff"
Cons: "Boarding procedure for business class with being held up in a small holding space"
Pros: "Upgraded to business, new 777 plane, good snack"
Cons: "No headphones"
Pros: "Onboard crew was great and communication was excellent."
Cons: "Gate communication was poor. Delay poorly explained. Boarding process very confusing."
Pros: "Good service... Quick boarding"
Cons: "Older plane, seats too narrow and short for 11hr flight. Bathrooms are TINY even by airline standards. Entertainment system has lots of choices but screens are low quality."
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew"
Cons: "There was no inflight entertainment of any kind."
Pros: "The crew’s positive energy and great service were truly amazing. Kudos Delta!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Flights are costly enough and it just seems wrong to upcharge passengers for more legroom. Legroom should be standard outside of first /business class."
Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable"
Cons: "Delays both in DETROIT and a huge delay in Shanghai."
Cons: "It felt like the flight attendant had a long day. Chairs weren't super comfortable."
Pros: "Easy, fast, simple. Not crowded."
Pros: "No delays. Easy boarding."
Cons: "Our itinerary was canceled"
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late. Then it was freezing in the flight. I let the crew know and it warmed up at the front and back of the plane but it was unbearable in the middle. It took me two hours to warm back up!"
Pros: "Fly attendants were very professional"
Cons: "Too much delay - departure was planned on March 15 @ 7 pm and take off happened on March 16 @ 12pm - a complete failure!!!!"
Pros: "The seats were awful .how many can squeeze in. .horrible"
Cons: "Room to breathe, move a little"

Pros: "Complimentary beverages."
Cons: "Chicken and pasta for dinner"
Pros: "Smooth. Fast boarding"
Pros: "Everyone is working the gate and on the plane were amazing!"
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't change flights on the day of travel"
Pros: "Great service, on time."
Cons: "Could not print subsequent AeroMexico flight segment boarding pass."
Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "As soon as we all were boarded we where told there was a mechanical issue. Sat on the boarded cramped flight for 2 hours until issue was fixed. If there was a mechanical issue then the plane should’ve not been boarded until it was fixed. Much rather have waited in lobby for 2 hours than on a plane with no food and water. Or at least alllowed us to deboard while issues where resolved."
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Cons: "No Gluten free option"
Pros: "Happy to get an earlier flight - and was put in ComfortPlus"
Cons: "Small plane, no entertainment (movies, music)"
Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"
Cons: "Delta is not good on customer service"
Pros: "I loved the check-in reminders, up-to-date flight info, and overall friendliness and helpfulness of the attendants."
Pros: "It was on time. Flight attendants were courteous. There were snacks."
Pros: "Smooth quick flight."
Cons: "I had to rebook as opposed to it being done by Delta. Cancelation was due to equipment."
Pros: "Flew in First Class. Felt very pampered"
Pros: "The boarding was easy, crew was super and the travel was awesome."
Cons: "The airplane was freezing cold. I had on a sweater and jacket and was unbearably cold. The entire plane was miserable. There weren’t any blankets either...this is not the"
Pros: "Decent selection of in-flight entertainment. (The entertainment unit was sub-par to allow full enjoyment.)"
Cons: "Older plane had undersized, non-responsive touch displays so passenger behind felt like a woodpecker. Also, retrofitted to provide in-seat power with metal box under seat in front of you makes it very uncomfortable for window passengers who don't have space to stow bag under seat in front of them or for their feet. (Uncomfortable on a long flight.)"
Pros: "On Tim and friendly"
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation."
Cons: "After fully boarding the plane, we all had to leave because the air conditioning failed. We've traveled five times on Delta this year and every trip has had a significant delay."
Pros: "Layout of aircraft."
Cons: "USB port barely accessible. Also, it didn't seem to work."
Cons: "Flight overbooked and the gate paid no attention to how many bags were being brought onboard. Was forced to check my carry on. I hope it arrived."
Pros: "Service from the crew."
Cons: "Quality and comfort of seats. Quality of food. The TV screen was from the 80s."
Pros: "Flight attendants were extremely nice to my baby and me. Didn't feel rushed. Nice variety of snacks."
Pros: "there was NOTHING good about the trip from nc to atl to fl!"
Cons: "where should i start? my flight was delayed leaving NC to ATL. after standing in line for over an hr trying to speak to someone about the issue. i was notified on my phone i could keep my current flight or rebook of course i wanted to keep my current flight since it was my birthday weekend. i then called delta (in nc) for help since they told us we wouldnt make our 1030 flight and we might have to stay in a hotel that night until we could rebook the flight. not cool! i was told by a person (in nc)about what i should do once landed in ATL. they were beyond rude. they turned their backs or gave half answers. when asked about the hotel for the night they told me they werent going to handle that and i had to pay for a hotel AFTER i was just told by a delta agent that if i had to stay overnight my hotel was going to be covered. i then again called a delta agent in ATL after being informed that my status on the stand by list wasnt activated and i had less than 10 mins to make it to the next terminal and try to get activated and i would probably not get onto that flight to leave ATL. we were told that we had to stay in the terminal that night. my whole trip could have been ruined from the start from the flight being delayed in NC to talking to rude delta agents in NC and ATL. my flight status being one thing and then finding out it was something else. i never had to deal with something like this."
Pros: "Easy flight. Plane and crew were fine"
Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."
Pros: "We did eventually get there"
Cons: "What should have been a 90 minute flight took over 4 hours! Between mechanical failure, overbooking and waiting for gates and sky bridges we missed our connection. Then when they rebooked our connection on a British Airways flight, BA couldn't pull up the tickets and we wasted yet another hour while Virgin Atlantic and Delta both passed the buck as to who was responsible for correcting it so we could get on our rebooked flight, which we BARELY did with only 2 minutes to spare!"
Cons: "First day our flight got canceled 1 hour before leaving the airport. No good explanation given. Planes were landing and departing from Columbus just our flight got cancelled which made no sense. Over the phone no one was really helpful. Very bad experience with Delta"
Pros: "Everything was great. Staff were friendly and courteous, I only had one problem but even that was solved and I was taken care of."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that wires got crossed and now I don't have my luggage because my check in agent from the start of my journey didn't send it to the right place."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Pros: "Everything else good."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and apologetic"
Cons: "The AC did not work and we had to get off and hang out in the jetway for probably 45 minutes. Nightmare."
Pros: "Great service, a lot of food, good entertainment"
Cons: "I don't understand why people take babies on red eyes. It makes the flight so unpleasant. I wish airlines would discourage this."
Pros: "Before we even boarded, the ticket agent happily found two seats together for my husband & I. The in-flight staff was particularly helpful. We had some medicine that needed to be refrigerated and they both provided a bag of ice for us to keep it in and checked back to replace the ice as it melted."
Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable in delta comfort zone."
Pros: "The cookies on board were tasty."
Cons: "There was no gate agent until another passenger went all the way to another gate to retrieve one. The flight kept getting delayed, but no one made any announcements about why or even that there was a delay. Passengers just kept noticing the time change on the flight info board. On board, if you didn't buy into Delta's classist system of paying for an "extra comfort" seat (which, by the way, is a regular seat), you were seated in a tiny shoved in extra row where even my 8 year old's knees bumped the seat in front of us while seated. I will never fly Delta again, particularly with them being one of the priciest options."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Arrived at airport at 08:00a for 09:10a flight. Delay for weather, then crew rest, then cancelled ~6 hours later. All while sitting in the airport like a dope. Put on a flight with overnight in LGA, but they could not tell us if a voucher would be provided. Usual story since the govt does not mandate the airlines do better. Was not advised to try standby on other later flights, which worked. Finally landing in BOS, we sat for 45+ min waiting for a third person to flag the plan to the gate. Understand why, but really annoying after such a long day full of delays. Felt many areas could have been handled better. Each person individually tried, but in aggregate it was a mess."
My original flight was cancelled and no explanation was provided. The flight wasn’t automatically rebooked so I spend roughly 4 hours with different service desk workers. They failed to actually “ticket” my booking so I had to then go to the service desk at the airport so that I could checkin. Austrian also needs to update their entertainment. They only add a new release of importance seemingly every quarter.
Everything went very smoothly.
Everything was very u nice except the info we needed was lacking. We needed to stamp our boarding passes at a separate desk and nobody informed us
Pros: "I like the airline and the workers are great. I don't like when they charged for luggage that $60.00 each way like round trip is $120.00. It should be by weight is 50 lbs or 23 kilo for minimum and if it is over the weight than it should charged little more price."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "You give no room for passengers to sit comfortably. We are crammed in the airplane like sardines in a can. No legroom, small seats, etc."
Pros: "Everything was excellent . I was very happy with this flight.Thank you so much."
Pros: "I do like the clean aircraft, and pretty precise service. Also it was on time , for comfort the pillow and the blanket was nice . Some airlines doesn’t give anything anymore! Which is awful."
Cons: "Just a small thing the lady who was serving and picking up the used cups said I have to finish the juice and after she can take it away. But I couldn’t finish because it was too sweet and I didn’t like the juice. So I had to get up and bring the cup to the back. That wasn’t nice. Also they at but flexible about giving choices. Only one kind of sandwich they had but I think there was one other kid also."
Pros: "Good flight , bad flight delay and luggage."
Cons: "To be on time"
Pros: "Nothing. I will never put her tickets from From here again."
Pros: "Staff and the service"
Cons: "Dinner was so bad"
Pros: "I never try Austrian airlines because this trip was my first trip with them and I'll say that it's one of the best trips I ever had the airport at Vienna it's very small and easy to go anywhere you want and it's super clean and the stuff at the airport are very helpful and they all speak English and I was able to get a hotel room with walking destination from the airport and it was a very good experience overall I'll definitely recommend to anyone and I'll definitely keep them on my top list"
Cons: "Flight was 1 hour late. Didn’t make up any time while in flight. We came to no gate assigned. Additional delays due to wait for free gate. Unacceptable, missed my connection. Had to stay additional day for rebooked flight."
Pros: "Crew were polite and accommodating."
Cons: "Plane temperature was too hot, despite my repeated requests to the crew to lower the temp. No one on this flight opened a single blanket - was that the goal? It was too hot to even sleep."
Pros: "Had 45 Min to connect at vienna airport and our first flight was delayed so we had to run to get in time to the gate. Literally the gate was on the opposite side of the airport. Bad logistics"
Cons: "I didn't like that I paid for a ticket months ago and checked in my bags and then was told that there's no room the plain is full"
Pros: "Good attention and food"
Cons: "Missed the connection because the flights were booked too closely together. Then had to wait 7 hours in the airport for the next flight. It only takes 4 hours to drive there but I don’t have a car."
Cons: "First there were problems with the plane... then it got delayed... I missed my connecting flight... now it’s 2 am I have a wedding to get to in 4 hrs and I finally just arrived ."
Pros: "Crew was great. Comfortable in terms of airline travel. Entertainment selection was spectacular given the long flights and the fact I was with three kids. Really pleased!"
Cons: "Food was ok, not great."
Pros: "Efficient boarding from bus. Friendly crew. Offered soft drink and coffee as well as choice of 2 snacks. No entertainment as such a short flight. Clean, modern plane."
Pros: "Crew only offered water once during the whole night flight. The entertainment programs regarding games was very restricted, both in terms of game offers as well as operation / handling"
Pros: "It was perfect, very few people, great service"
Pros: "Friendly staff, efficient"
Cons: "I didn’t understand that we got no baggage allowance with our tickets. When I looked on the website it appeared that star alliance members got the usual free luggage. Apparently it was a “lit” fare & we didn’t. It would have been worth it to get the next class of fare"
Cons: "Flyght was terible"
Cons: "There was plenty of space, and so I rven had a chance to catch some sleep on the transatlantic flight. But Uktimately, unless you are travelling in luxury, transatlantic flights are awful."
Pros: "The flight was fast and conftable"
Cons: "I didn’t get my food"
Pros: "On time departure, friendly staff"
Cons: "GET AN AGREEMENT WITH GLOBAL ENTRY"
Pros: "I had double seat all to myself so that was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2hrs because of the strike - very annoying. The food was average for the plane foodn but the desert was excellent"
Pros: "Seating like every other airline in economy. There was NO baggage charge for economy and the drink trolley offered wine and beer, at no cost, on our 1.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Very well organozed"
Pros: "The food was tasty, the crew was nice and overall it was realy good"
Cons: "There wasn't any movies or music as entertainment"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth"
Cons: "We were 7 persons on the flight so we brought 7 bags to get on the plain but in the check in they told us that the flight is crowded so we can't get so many bags on. The flight wasn't full and there were plenty of room for our bags."
Cons: "It was late No food"
Pros: "The plane crew was really nice always there for my needs."
Cons: "The seats were uncortable my chair was very wobbly."
Cons: "We booked Austrian Airlines to Kosice for 6 to play a concert for 3,000 on Thursday night. 4 of our group arrived from ZRH; 2 from LHR. LHR-VIE was late; we ran and arrived in time catch VIE-KSC before it left, but Austrian Air would not allow us to board, despite that the other part of our travel party was already on the plane and alerted both gate staff and on-board staff we were coming and wee had to play a show that night with Arch Enemy. We had to wait 10 hours in VIE & given €12 for food. AA cited "rotational issues". Shockingly, Austrian Air delayed the 2nd flight by another hour "to wait for someone". We had to cancel the show. Really angry"
Pros: "Left on time, exit row seats and a simple, yet adequate meal. The beverage cart came by a few times."
Cons: "No tv, maps or entertainment at all."
Cons: "We left from Vienna , two hours late. This kind of problem supposed to be fix it , before.i like to fly with Austrian Airlines, isn't the first time, but now for me , to so long was a big problem"
Pros: "Plenty of food and drinks, pleasant crew"
Cons: "Poor service, will not fly again with this airline"
Cons: "I used flights between Vienna and Prague several times and in most cases they are delayed."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable even in economy. The crew were helpful and professional. Good food."
Cons: "We were boarded and then told we had to sit on the plane for 45 minutes before take off. It's possible this way beyond the crew's control, but still would've been better to wait in the airport. Also, the movie selection was smallish compared to some other airlines."
Pros: "On time, smooth takeoff and landing, friendly staff and crew"
Cons: "Everything was fine, even the legroom"
Pros: "The plane itself was ok, the food also was ok."
Cons: "As usual, boarding in Miami airport is awful which is not exactly coming from austrian airlines, but they also took part in the unpleasant experience. The announcements were badly articulated, the boarding time was delayed and so on. Onboard, part of the crew completely refused to speak english."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly. Attended more to German speaking passengers and were out right rude to those who spoke no German and little English"
Cons: "The crew members on the flight from Washington to Vienna were absolutely rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant"
Cons: "Very crowded plane!"
Pros: "Fast and short flight between Vienna and Warsaw. Not much good or bad."

Pros: "Clean and comfortable airplane"
Cons: "Entertainment wasn’t working the entire flight"

Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Great reminder. Perfect communication about dalays etc. I will book through Kayak again"
Pros: "Once again the crew was great and helped me find a place to stow my carry on since I was in the emergency row. The snack was also very tasty."
Pros: "We paid extra $200 round-trip so that my 6’4” tall husband and 6’2” son could have extra legroom. There was at least an extra foot of space between the end of their knees and the reclined seats in front of them. Wow. It was worth it! We had the aisle behind business class, and with only 3 middle seats vs 4, even our aisles were comfortably wide. The seat comfort has improved greatly from past flights on Lufthansa. The small pillows at each seat were comfy. We liked that the silverware was actually metal instead of plastic - nice! Loved loved loved the free good quality alcohol! Air temperature felt comfortable to us doing the entire flight – normally these flights are freezing cold."
Cons: "The food was so-so. Not shocking - but you asked. At least the rolls were tasty & we loved that true unsalted butter was provided!"
Pros: "The whole trip went smoothly. The price was right. There was a very bad storm in Charlotte before departure. Lufthansa made a delay, and I was very happy about that decision. They were very informative about connections, and emailed important information. Friendly, competent staff!"
Pros: "almost hrly refreshments courteous crew calm demeanor"
Pros: "The snack/ breakfast was not very good"
Cons: "Long flight"
Pros: "We had a 2 hours delay but the captain was professional and the next flight was rebooked"

Pros: "food was above average drinks were provided often entertainment selection was great staff was well mannered and smiling"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and attentive. Airplane had good amenities. On time and smooth takeoff and landing."
Pros: "Food was good. Flight attendants were good."
Cons: "Luggage didn’t make it to my final destination . The fact my luggage was lost might have made my reviews of other areas more harsh than actuality"
Cons: "Delayed and therefore missing my connecting flight. Still needed to check in on time as if flight was not delayed. Being stuck in AP for 6 hours. Carry on is ltd to 8kg. My empty carry on weights 6kg. What is next with airlines? Travel without luggage? Stop gauging your customers."
Cons: "Too uncomfortable for sleep, but that’s every economy flight now."
Pros: "No problems and great food service"
Pros: "Crew did a great job making up time for late start"
Pros: "The Lufthansa flight from Charlotte to Munich and then toMumbai was excellent. Punctual, Food and the Service was good.the"
Cons: "The Air India did not transferred my luggage when I reached there midnight. The Air India Ticket counter opened at 2:30 AM only then they booked my luggage to Bangalore. The luggage was handled very poorly and they broke my Golf Carrier which I bought for $350 in September of 2016. The Airlines wanted to settle for $15 compensation."
Pros: "Loved having a real glass and real stainless fork and spoon rather than plastics. Liked the better quality (heavier) blankets and pillows. Loved the cleanliness of the plane. Impressed with the space of the Premium seats even though I did not have one. Loved having warm bread/roll with evening meal. Seat head rests could be raised to help taller people."
Cons: "Headphones in the back of the seats were two pronged and did not fit the display. Attendants offered appropriate headphones at first of flight, but I did not understand what was going on. Seats were a little hard. Some of the mesh pockets on the backs of seats were not properly attached at the bottom and items placed in the them would fall through."
Pros: "Service was exceptional and prompt"
Pros: "The Lufthansa crew is always wonderful as always."
Cons: "screaming and kicking child behind my seat, with no way to "escape". I had a severe cold and that was certainly not something I needed, I tried to get some rest, but that was impossible. The seats are getting smaller and smaller, hardly any legroom whatsoever. Also, what I had planned on bringing on the aircraft as carry on (which was my work equipment, tablet/printer etc), I had to check in as luggage because it was "overweight" meaning more than 8 kg and pay ADDITIONAL $200 (in addition to the $100 I already paid for one suitcase). I've seen many passengers with "heavy" carry on, which they were apparently allowed to bring into the cabin without any problems. I had never had to pay for any carry on, and I am seriously considering using another airline for future business travel."
Pros: "Great crew, polite and helpful. Pillow and blanket were a nice touch. Will use them again!!"
Cons: "The food isn't that great though it wasn't horrible. Plane was extremely warm both to me and some seated around me."
Cons: "Late one hour. Apparently equipment failure"
Pros: "Outstanding service in cabin service, on time, legroom in economy."
Cons: "Seats a little hard. Very good instead of great."
Cons: "Seat space is limited and if one is traveling from us to India both the planes have same entertainment channels"
Cons: "The special meal I got was not the same as I ordered."
Pros: "There was plenty of room (even in economy), good food, and a friendly staff. I enjoyed having my own TV screen where I could watch movies and listen to music. I've traveled to Europe several times and Lufthansa is the best airline!"
Pros: "The crew was great and loved the pre boarding with my children."
Cons: "That had to be the most uncomfortable flight to France I have been in. There was no leg room at all."
Cons: "The second flight they board us then left us on the bus in the parking lot for 25 minutes breathing airplane fuel."
Pros: "Very efficient, clean and comfortable."
Pros: "Everything on time"
Pros: "Ouldn't have been better Good choice of movies Food was fine"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "That they gouge you buy making you pay for advanced seat reservations on top of already high ticket prices Plane configuration is too crowded. Food quality has declined significantly. The airline was premier at one time but has declined quite a bit"
Cons: "Boarding was in organizes."
Cons: "My Name is Randy Frye. I left my head phone on the plane, spoke with a Lufthansa rep they called and said I would not have time to go back for them but they would send them to me. then the flight going from Munich to Frankfurt was late so I missed my flight from Frankfurt to Dusseldorf. Waited for 3 hours then the flight to Dusseldorf was canceled. waited for 2 hours for a train ticket. then had to take another train to the airport to get a rental car. GOT TO THE HOTEL AT 11:30pm Saturday night had to be at work at 7:00am NOT HAPPY"
Cons: "No exaggeration: The crew rolled a beverage cart in front of the restroom while I was in there. I couldn't leave for about 4 minutes The food made me vomit. That's why I was in the restroom when they blocked me in My headset jack was broken. 500 movies aren't worth anything if I can't hear them"
Pros: "Plane, amenities, crew, flight...all 5 *s"
Cons: "Travelers should be aware getting around that terminal is counterintuitive and not efficient at all....Gate was crowded and confused....I don't understand the point if it's design....also not the place to exchange money...use ATM's"
Cons: "Upgraded my seats for $$$ and they changed the plane and wouldn't honor it. Returning flight was canceled and they were very unhelpful"
A330 were a bit older and started to look a little run down but with the correct seat selection in business (even A seats) a very comfortable ride. Crew was fantastic
Staff was very rude at verona airport
The whole experience was miserable. Worst service I’ve ever received. Turkish airlines customer support called me a liar and threatened to hang up on me when the whole issue was due to their delays. They booked me on a different flight arriving two days late without my consent on travel times and then refused changing any of my itinerary. I travel internationally for work every month and this has been by far my worst travel experience. DEPLORABLE service and they simply do not care about their customers
Pros: "Having requested assistance due to breaking my leg, the service at Heathrow, Charlotte and JFK with American Airlines was excellent."
Pros: "The seats were comfy and the pilots were skilled, food was average."
Cons: "The handles in between the seats could've been better by being able to be completely raised."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The food was good"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Better leg room, better food, friendlier crew. Today you only get good treatment if you pay extra for it... Something is wrong with the pay-for-good-service model most airlines follow"
Pros: "everything was good"
Cons: "Needed a bit more food :)"
Cons: "Original departure time: 08:50- Estimated departure time 10:20. Actual departure time: 11:00."
Pros: "New plane, good food choices."
Cons: "Plane could use a deep clean. Entertainment choices were limited in terms of latest blockbusters."
Pros: "I wish I found somebody to take me around"
Cons: "No complains"
Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "it was a poor food choice again."
Pros: "The crew is excellent. Very friendly, professional, and helpful. Both on board and at the desk inside the airport. They listen to your needs and respond the best they can. Seats are comfortable enough for Economy. Good selection of movies to watch. The flight was on time and arrived even a little earlier than expected."
Cons: "The food was filling, but not particularly tasty. For those seated toward the back, there was no choice. Although maybe there was no choice to begin with. Normally, on international flights, for the first (bigger) meal at least, you are given two choices, such as meat or vegetarian, beef or chicken. The food itself wasn't great. The salad was below average on both flight, from and to Chicago. So was the desert. Drinks are offered once with each meal in very small glasses. Although there is a bottle of water from the start."
Pros: "Personal finnair were very unpleasant and offered me for 30 min flight to Tallinn wait 8.5 hours flight to Stockholm and coming next day afternoon. Everything was too bad. I had to get taxi and boat and coming in Tallinn. I lost time and money. I never going to use finnair and kayak again."
Cons: "Everything. Worst flight in my life"
Pros: "The blueberry juice was good!!"
Cons: "Sitting by the bathrooms. There weren’t even pretzels."
Cons: "The plane landed much later than expected, and I missed my connecting flight to Moscow. While I was given another boarding pass, I had to have another layover in St. Petersburg, and fly to Moscow from there. The flight turned out to be much longer, and much more exhausting. My overall experience was unpleasant."
Pros: "If you picked the wrong line then check in took 40 minutes, arrive early!"
Cons: "Btw you have cancelled my flight!!!!!!!! And sent me just an email."
Pros: "leg room, service, movie selection"
Cons: "the arm rests don't go up, the food was weird. It's nice that they served two meals but both of my vegetarian option meals were cold and unidentifiable."
Cons: "Huge lines at the airport for check in and drop off of lugagges. Apparently finnair hasn't heard yet of automatic check in and drop off. After that long wait for boarding and flight delayed. Very little information."
Pros: "Finnair was tolerable for a 1.5 hours flight. I tried blueberry juice for the first time and quite liked it. There was no food on this flight."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about for the short leg."
Cons: "Food, no option asked just served from Helsinki to Miami. Entertainment system was not working and later had only limited options."
Cons: "Left the cabin lights on most of the trip and kept interrupting with announcements to sell duty free and other things when most people just wanted to sleep. Flight from Chicago to Helsinki was much better."
Cons: "LATE DEPARTURE DUE TO PLANE HAD NOT ARRIVED ON TIME"
Pros: "Flying out of Chicago we had a 3 hour delay. Caused me to miss my connection. The cause was "plane availability". What? It wasn't weather related in the least. Once the flight left the ground, the trip was very pleasant. But, Finnair should have made some sort of compensation to the passengers. They did not."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "There is no wi-fi There is no possibility to charge your mobile"
Pros: "I liked everything. Pleasant flight."
Cons: "Not that I didn't like, only some comments: Flight was 40 min late at arrival due to delayed start from JFK, the plane had to wait on runway before take-off. Not a problem for me as HEL was my final destination."
Pros: "The sitting quite comfortable, have space for the legs. Food was fine."
Cons: "One kind of ice-cream only !! Why only Vanilla ? Should have at least 2 different, to choose from."
Cons: "They let us board before fixing an electrical problem causing major delay. They needed a new part and they thought they could jerryrig a repair!"
Cons: "This was booked as British Airways, but ended up American Airways. The food was cold and had to be reheated, the plane was worn, overall this was one of the worst flights to Europe ever. I did not book American, just got duped into it, but now I will make sure I will never fly American again."
Pros: "We had a row to ourselves with a seat between us. The flight was smooth. Blueberry juice. Competitive pricing."
Cons: "Having to pay to reserve seats."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was enjoyable. The Finnair crew took all of the potential pain out of an intercontinental flight. We will definitely be flying with them again."
Pros: "Everything was good. Tv screen had issues booking for first half of flight"
Cons: "Very old plane, seats did not have personal entertainment systems"
Pros: "I like the Airbus A330 model's that AA flies from Charlotte on European destinations. They are the former USAir A330's and they are nice both in business and economy. There are no premium economy seats on this version. And Charlotte is an excellent airport to fly from/to."
Cons: "I wish there was a premium economy offering on this plane. The first row of economy is sold as such but is really nothing like prem economy apart from additional legroom."
Pros: "This is not my first experience with Finnair flight and I'm very pleased with a consistency of a good service, high professionalism and I will recommend this airline to all my friends."
Pros: "Direct from San Diego to Heathrow."
Cons: "The seats are very small--and I am a small woman--so the flight felt cramped. The food was just ordinary airline food--little taste. Coffee served essentially black--no offer of milk or cream. Take it or leave it-- Crew helpful if you could flag someone down. Most irritating: could not check in online for some unexplained reason and required to arrive two hours early. BA does no subscribe to TSA so spent time in a line unnecessarily. AND, then the crew arrived over an hour late so the flight left at least an hour late. The crew explained that their downtown bus did not arrive and they could not arrange one. Given the close proximity to the airport, this should have been a 10 minute cab ride."
Pros: "My son and I requested gluten free meals when we reserved our tickets. When the meal was being served the crew had NO record of our meals needing to be gluten free. So we had to get one of the meals that was being offered. This was unfortunate and they made no other attempts to rectify the situation. Also, many TV monitors were malfunctioning, including mine which did not have clear sound. It was jumbled and not even clear enough to make out words in a movie or song on the radio channels. Thank you, Emily Snyder"
Pros: "Overnight flight and not full so could stretch out."
Cons: "It really was not Finnair, it was American. When I tried checking in Finnair had no knowlege of my ticket. I had to read the fine print to find the name American Airlines. Even the woman at Finnair was not sure, and thought that it was run by Brittish Air."
Pros: "Polite and helpful crew and great entertainment systems."
Pros: "Flghr was operated by American Airline Flight was surbooked and I was lucky enough to be upgraded in business class Crew members were great, service excellent MK"
Cons: "Smooth flight Arrived early."
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats, very dated entertainment options, bland food."
Pros: "British Airways did a very good job with everything. Pleasant crew,helpful attendants and great enterntainment. I loved the flight :)"
Pros: "Great service. Comfy seats."
Pros: "the flight was very comfortable"
Pros: "The entertainment and service was the only plus on this flight."
Cons: "When I booked my ticket a month in advance, British Airways was going to charge me extra for trying to book my seating in advance. They told me it would be free if I called 24hrs before the flight. I called 24hrs before and they told me they could not book my seats because the airport owned the seating. My first flight was with American Airlines, they gave me a boarding pass, however for my leg with British Airways, I had to go get ANOTHER boarding pass to board the flight. This airline was very inconvenient and I felt scammed booking with them. I would not recommend this airline to anyone!"
Pros: "Blueberry juice - nice change for sodas and so refreshing! The lady captain's announcements were very clear, light and fun...and perfect in three different languages...her enjoyment came across professionally...truly catering to her passengers. She flew that plane also so very smoothly!"
Cons: "Ingen underhållning ingen flyginformation otrevlig personal jag kommer inte att flyga Finnair igen. Jag och alla andra fick sitta att stirra på väggen framför oss i 7timmar den spanska personalen ska inte jobba för ett nordiskt flygbolag fy fan Med vänlig hälsning Benny"
Pros: "Staff was kind, flight itself generally went smoothly. The boarding process itself went fairly quickly, and I was able to disembark within minutes of landing."
Cons: "This Finnair flight was operated by American Airlines, but American Airlines did not notify me about the change in flight number until I called in a panic the night before because I was unable to check in. The plane was nearly 2 hours late departing from Chicago O'Hare with no explanation given. 1hr and 45 minutes is a long time to sit without going anywhere. Food was incredibly uninspiring and the staff was kind, but generally seemed distracted. I asked for a beverage at one point, but the flight attendant was too busy trying to get the passenger next to me who was passed out on sleeping pills to put the window shade down to give it to me. American Airlines is one of the only carriers left that has not upgraded to individual entertainment units for transatlantic flights and so the entertainment was like something straight out of Mad Men. Probably my worst flying experience to date."
