Pros: Nothing. There was no flight. The flight was cancelled and you did not notify us. We found it out ourselves by accident. We tried to contact you guys but we could not call or anything other. You guys suck
Cons: Notify your customers when the flight is cancelled. Thats the least you can do. Very unprofessional

Cons: The sitting was so very small, I never traveled so crumpled.

Pros: Excellent

Pros: The crew was friendly and helpful.

Pros: Good crew, food was good for airline food. Entertainment offerings were good.
Cons: Too many seats, 3-4-3 configuration means not even enough room to walk down aisle without bumping people in their narrow seats.

Pros: Crew were great
Cons: Cabin kept very hot, very difficult to sleep. Seats were so-so comfortable

Pros: Orderly boarding process. Considerate reseating when bulkhead with extra legroom were not usable.

Pros: The crew was amazingly efficient serving food and drink. In the recline position the seat bottom extended which was far more comfortable than simply reclining.
Cons: The food was mediocre and the selection of movies was very limited.

Pros: Great organization, very efficient
Cons: Bag fees were not made clear on Kayak or Swiss website, seats on Edelweiss A320 we’re spaced too close together for my legs, though was not a problem on the 777.

Cons: I never made it on the flight. It was over booked, they switched me over... I'm still at the airport, missing two days of my vacation. Flights have been delayed from SFO, causing me to miss so many of the connecting flights...

Cons: Delayed flight and delayed layover

Pros: Smooth transfer from Terminal 3 to the International Terminal. Great airport. Easy boarding, friendly crew and very smooth flight.
Cons: I was very happy with my flight experience with Swiss.

Pros: Crew is great.
Cons: The airline lost my luggage .

Pros: None
Cons: Seats

Cons: Lost our bags

Pros: Friendly crew
Cons: Very good overall

Pros: Full array of entertainment.
Cons: Seats were not too comfortable.

Pros: Great entertainment and food- all excellent.
Cons: Uncomfortable, small seats in Economy.

Pros: The crew
Cons: Boarding by rows and not like cows all at one time

Pros: The food was great. The service is excellent. Swiss Air gets an A+.

Pros: Great friendly crew. Efficient systems.
Cons: Tight seats. Very little leg room.

Pros: Flight was very smooth and on schedule.
Cons: Seating in economy was very cramped (pitch felt like 77”) and food and entertainment nothing special. Somehow I had higher expectations for comfort and service, even in economy.

Cons: Did NOT know ticket was economy light!!!! I WAS UPSET WE HAD TO PAY BAGGAGE FEE!!!!

Pros: Great cabin crew!
Cons: While waiting to board SFO-ZRH flight Swissair personnel walked around and randomly pulled out passengers from line to check luggage dimensions. Since manufacturers adhere to airline baggage standards, no violations were found during checks. This misguided effort only resulted in publicly humiliating Swissair customers. Boarding process was pure pandemonium...this was the first time in recent memory, where all coach passengers were invited to board at the same time! Very inefficient! Crowded seating in coach,with ten passengers sandwiched in across Boeing 767 aircraft. Competing airlines flying identical aircraft have nine across seatings Thin seat cushions cause leg cramps after a few hours.

Pros: I was gratified to see that the 777 Boeing aircraft have now replaced the older Airbus aircraft..... This is my sixth time traveling to Switzerland from San Francisco on Swiss....Their service in my opinion remains excellent......The cabin crew was cheerful friendly yet remained very efficient at the same time... The food was very good, , The two meals that comes with one's Ticket still also comes with complimentary beverage service .... and even a warm moist towel is offered towards the end of the flight ... not bad for a seat in coach ....
Cons: I had no complaints except that there was a 40+ minute delay in receiving our checked baggage..... this could have been a problem With the airport ground crew at Zurich airport .....

Pros: The seats would recline too far so that people behind would get their range of motion uncomfortably limited.

Pros: Families with small children can board with first class passengers. The staff member who checked us in greeted my son by his name at the plane door!
Cons: Some flight attendants were not attentive to service.

Pros: The seat is designed beautifully. Staff and crew incredibly nice.
Cons: Movie and TV choices were so limited. You really need to add more options. I found only 1 movie I liked.

Cons: Very tight seating in economy for a transcontinental flight

Pros: Food and service were good
Cons: Seats were terrible - way too small, too tight. No room for underseat placement of a backpack and feet. Sardine packing of economy passengers!

Pros: Enjoyed the service.

Pros: entertainment selection
Cons: upgrade entertainment system, needs touch screen and screen wouldn't turn off completely. leg room and space under seat

Cons: Could use some more seating space

Pros: Boarding and staff okay
Cons: Terrible plane ; no room , the most miserable flight we have ever been on

Pros: We were very pleased with our flight on Swiss Air.

Cons: No plugs for USB chargers in economy. Entertainment units were broken.

Pros: Enjoyed the food. On demand entertainment. Beverage service.
Cons: Despite paying for extra leg room I somehow needed more. Not Swiss Airs fault, but I know better for next time.

Cons: Seat too small, no room, will never fly Swiss again. This was an 11 hour flight and I need more space and comfort.

Pros: seat too tight

Cons: 100% of our checked luggage was lost and two days into our one week biking trip in Sweden we have heard NOTHING from Swiss Air. No knowledge of where the four large bags are, no follow up and no help. Basically, we have been left with biking clothing and little hope that our bags will show up before we leave Sweden. Unacceptable and we will NEVER fly this airlines again.

Cons: Missed my fight, not by my Folt(big accident on highway 80) .. Paid 400$ fee for next connecting flight, but first they told me I have to buy new ticket. My laguage was shipped only to Zurich, but destination was Vienna.. so they didn't let me on connecting flight.. It took another 3hours dealing with people from Swiss airlines(great service

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: Staff were nice
Cons: Very old plane. Had a big metal box at my feet, could not stretch out. Tv screens old and hard to watch. Food was pretty bleak too. Very disappointed.

Cons: Old plane, hard uncomfortable seats, no wifi, rigid flight attendants, awful food, middle seat (after paying for premium seating) with two enormous guys on either side, fixed armrest, AC dripped on me most of the flight and was told nothing could be done, interminable.

Pros: Extra Legroom
Cons: It should have been a good flight BUT: the older gentleman next to me had a pot belly and he was not able to use his seat foldup tray. I had to share my small meal tray with him. That very uncomfortable! Seats were tight. Not a pleasant experience with Swiss.

Pros: Great crew, and on time, of course: there Swiss!
Cons: Tech old and seats uncomfortable and plane loud.

Pros: Stewards were great. The food was good and generous.
Cons: Seat rows were too close together and seats were uncomfortable for the 11 hour flight.

Pros: As usual, the food and entertainment were very good. Boarding was easy as we just lined up and entered the plane w/o any concern for group #'s, etc...
Cons: I was stuck in an aisle seat in the back of the plane where there was literally no leg room - there was a metal box (video equipment?) in the very narrow space underneath the seat in front of me. Luckily there was no one sitting in the middle seat so I could put my legs there. Also, when flying to Europe from the west coast I prefer flying to the east coast first and then taking a red eye.

Pros: super nice crew-really friendly, accommodating, happy, all that sort of thing. really liked them and they're awesome!!
Cons: i am a regular sized woman, size 8, and a bit tall 5'9" and the seat felt wayyyy to small for me. couldn't put my hands naturally by my sides and the arm rests were too high to be comfortable, so i had to sit there with my shoulders held up the entire flight. was so sore afterwards!! also, the headphones barely worked (only one side, on the replacement as well!) and the entertainment system shut down twice.

Pros: Jennifer - Appreciate the security and follow-up
Cons: Not the traveler will need to get boarding, crew, comfort, food and entertainment next week.


Pros: Sleeping and being left alone
Cons: Food, Service by cabin crew because they never smiled

Pros: Good movie selection
Cons: Multiple delays for my flight. First the departure was delayed which I know can happen. Then we boarded and sat for over an hour before take off. Captain made up a story about the plane needed gas and said we would take off in 15 minutes. An hour and 15 minutes later we finally took off.

Cons: Flight to Lisbon late. Missed connection Now have 10 hour delay

Pros: The crew was really nice
Cons: The food and proving more snacks and drinks

Cons: When late, pls help passangers.with no helpfull people dont work

Pros: Food was ok
Cons: Worst accommodations for baggage on a international flight in my opinion.Pay for a bag is the best advice in my opinion this airline barley lets you bring anything with. Disgusting plane it was so dirty I took a shower after this flight and the amount of dust in the air was visible terrible

Pros: Great entertainment selection.
Cons: I had two flights that day: TAP Portugal: greeters, assistance loading carry-on, fish with potatoes and spinach, glass of wine, pudding, sandwich, carrot cake bite, coffee and a blanket. Jet Blue: water three hours in, (unhealthy) bag of chips.

Pros: Flight was on time, crew friendly on airport and flight. Plane was clean and sits were ok.
Cons: The food could have been better.

Pros: the crew did really made sure we had what we needed.
Cons: Should have made an announcement that the 3g cellular coverage was turned on. Went on in the middle of the flight and had no idea. My phone was in the overhead bin and I thought it was off. When I landed I had an outrageous fee. Should be given a choice to use it or not.

Cons: Flight delayed but otherwise it was good! Maybe entertainment such as tv monitors or inflight entertainment upgrade.

Cons: Good flight, on time. Service ok. Captain did a good job communicating. Nice touch with wine at dinner.

Pros: Entertainment was fine
Cons: On my ticket I selected the lacto-ovo vegetarian meal and I never received it. I told the flight attendant and he said “we don’t have any more, chicken or fish”. I said “I am a vegetarian” and he gave me a tiny salad, a bread roll, and a chocolate mousse. I was very hungry as I hadn’t eaten in 9 hrs

Cons: Checked bag fee was expensive at $120 per bag. For the two of us bags cost $240. The plane boarded late this departed and arrived late. Otherwise a very good flight. Very comfortable, all Amenities worked, the plane was clean and the staff accommodating.

Pros: Very modern aircraft, good (but not excellent) food, small bathrooms
Cons: It was not made clear that I would have to pay for my baggage extra - it was $120 to check one bag! Boarding was slow and pretty awful and that you have to pay for any seating in advance is just awful! Also JustFlly wasn't able to actually assign the seats I had chosen was a real turn off. Bad term

Pros: The crew were very friendly and attentive, there was a delay to boarding and departure but they were very apologetic about it. Service was attentive on the plane and bags promptly delivered at the baggage carousel.
Cons: I upgraded at the airport to Executive class, which is really a bit of a scam to be honest. It’s just the first two rows of the plane and the middle seat kept free... the seats were no different to economy. Not worth the 109€ upgrade fee.

Pros: Very on time, smooth take off and landing and friendly staff.
Cons: Perhaps spirits offered other than just wine. And a vegetarian food option.

Pros: clean and fast
Cons: use airport finger in Lisbon airport

Pros: Nothing was amazing. Worse thing is the luggage -- they only allow 8kg as carry on, You can hardly carry anything more than a computer and the actual TUMI carryon bag with that.
Cons: Lots of unhelpful, depressed people, servicing the company and this particular flight at the airport in Copenhagen. Worse thing of all is the luggage -- they only allow 8kg as carry on. You can hardly carry anything more than a computer and the TUMI carryon bag with that.with that.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: The service was worse than poor. The planes seay table had hair and dandruff all over it. The air hostesses handed me the food two isles away and I had to hand it to my whole row. I would never pay this price for business class for this airline or ever trust Kayak to give good options.

Pros: On time!
Cons: That I had to pay for my check in bag on my return trip. Was told the ticket I booked didn't include check in bags. Whan my trip going to Portugal on Azores Airlines did. Someone shout step in and change this practice. Very confusing for the traveler

Cons: why do they sell their tickets when they know they can not make the connection? little time between the two flights compared to the functionality of the airport. never again TAP

Pros: Great lie flat seat. Nice FAs.
Cons: Food was not that great for intl C

Pros: Refuel was quick and we were back on air in less than 30 min... Wich was great..

Pros: Nothing
Cons: I paid for the upgrade to business class and is like wasting money, the seat on business class was not working good

Pros: Staff courteous compared to our previous TAP FLIGHT

Pros: None of the videos about Portugal worked!!

Pros: 75 Euro per bag!!!

Cons: Plane too small and doesn’t have the thing to charge my phone

Pros: There was great entertainment on the first flight

Pros: Well done...when other airlines offer nothing!
Cons: Slight delay in boarding... but arrived on time

Pros: The food and air conditioning
Cons: I purposely got a seat in the front row for extra leg room next to my two friends whose tickets I paid for. The TV in my seat was broken and I therefore could not at all watch TV unless I moved to another seat. I ended up not being able to sit with my friends for the entire seven-hour flight. The flight was delayed multiple times. The first time it was delayed because they were doing an extra security search by hand in the Gated area awaiting to board the plane. I have never seen this in my life and it was definitely started. Then we were on board the plane for almost an hour before they made an announcement that they found a broken part on the plane and had to switch planes. It was all very fishy. Quite frankly that I want my money back.

Pros: it had a feet support the toilet was big it was airplane food, still better than most companies I know from Europe, Asia and the USA.
Cons: the head rest was too hard

Pros: Economy/coach leg room was better than expected
Cons: shuttle bus delayed once passengers had boarded for transfer to plane and delayed release to plane once we arrived at the plane, perhaps due to a plane repair, but wasn't told what the issue was before boarding

Pros: I was very impressed with the Ground crew who met me off the plane and had already arranged for me to go on a later flight with Emirates. If it had been possible to let me know when I was on the first flight that my onward travel had been arranged then it would have been perfect.
Cons: my TAP Portugal flight from Lisbon to Heathrow was so late I missed my connection to AbuDhabi.

Pros: The plane arrived in Lisbon without falling out of the sky prematurely.
Cons: The process of checking my bag was brutal. It took an hour and half of waiting in line because the staff's management of the flow of people was so chaotic. Finally, a staff member realized that certain passengers were at risk of missing their flight and invited those passengers (like me) to jump to the head of the line. Otherwise, no communication from the staff to the queue of anxious people.

Cons: The online check in open for a flight from the us to the europe must be open 24 before, indeed it has been opened only 16 hours before...

Cons: Delay

Pros: Smooth landing
Cons: A few bumpy moments in the air!

Pros: Five stars for TAP, good attention of its staff, good food and attention during the flight.

Pros: Food was gross I couldn't even eat it. The soup came in a paste and the beef tasted expired, I saw a hair on my rice. Just awful, for the entire flight from Lisbon to Miami I didn't eat it was just disgusting. I've flown and never had such an awful experience with the food.
Cons: Tasted bad, unsanitary. I found a hair and the food just looks like something I would give my dog.

Cons: Connecting flight cancelled

Pros: Everything was perfect. More than I expected and would certainly fly with them again.

Pros: Nice new plane, lie flat beds, great value for the price

Pros: Wine and sparkling wine were better than anticipated, food was better than average;
Cons: I am pretty tall, so would have liked my legroom. Also, my luggage was lost, which is unusual. I had a 3h layover in LIS and did not expect luggage would be lost that easily.

Pros: They served drinks and were friendly.
Cons: Really slow and inefficient boarding process.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything

Pros: Service, staff, food, airplanes.
Cons: Nothing.

Cons: Luggage lost and still not delivered 3 days later. This should not happen in 2016.

Pros: Comfortable, nice flight. Lots of room for legs.Confortable leather seats. Nice food and drink options.Great flight attendants. Early arrival in Boston. Smooth and pleasant return flight to the US overall just like the flight going to Europe.
Cons: Confusing non-European passport check with machines that did not work. Police officers did not help at all. They just waited for us to manage to go through automatic passport checking via machines and stamped our passports. Frustrating for the elderly people in line with us. Long, delayed boarding. Long wait to get luggage at arrival : more than one hour! Long wait at customs although we had landed early and there was no other flight than ours at first, but we waited so long for our luggage that there was an enormously long line because a couple of more flights had also landed. Overall an exhausting experience because of the wait at arrival. And we had a 2-hour drive afterwards... BUT this has has nothing to do with the flight which was great!
