Cons: "Comfort seats"
Cons: "It would have been better if I had made the flight, but the first leg was canceled. We were tortured for 6 hours before it was canceled."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Boarding by rows and not like cows all at one time"
Pros: "Great scenery!!!"
Pros: "We have been flying Swiss for years and they are the most reliable and best organized airline, we have ever experienced."
Cons: "I didn't notice that I had booked some sort of new economy light category where checked baggage is no longer included and to check baggage when booked into this class cost $60 per bag per flight. So overall on the trip I paid $240 extra for luggage alone."
Pros: "The loveliest crew possible and the easiest and most efficient connection logistics imaginable! Full praise for Swiss Air"
Pros: "Same as above- wonderful crew, smooth take off and landing Very pleasant flight attendants the entire flight Service was great"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "SAME AS ABOVE"
Cons: "plan was late for any reasons...."
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Boarding was difficult with poor communication, before impolite request for spot check of carry-on bag and person. Ended up being one of the last to board. Entertainment system did not work, and after 4 requests for assistance to different crew members finally gave up asking and so had no entertainment for whole of flight. The last of the crew members suggested that an alternative seat or a future flight voucher could be given, but neither of these materialized. Food mediocre, and crew polite, but some not particularly friendly."
Cons: "We were scheduled for a 55 minute layover in Zurich which was not nearly enough time. Our plane was 10 minutes late in landing but our next flight was delayed 5 minutes. We had to take a bus from the plane to the terminal, go through immigration with very long lines, take a tram to our departure terminal and then run to our gate which was at the end of a very long hallway. Luckily they held the plane but it was very stressful and exhausting getting to our plane."
Pros: "Food and crew were great."
Cons: "Economy is tight."
Pros: "Was good"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Small plane with very uncomfortable thin hard seats. Could feel the ride on this plane. Food not great. No entertainment on board."
Pros: "The head fligh attendant was very nice and welcoming and informative she personally took care of our carry on to put in the check in..."
Cons: "I was not able to buy from the duty free discounted offers on the plane. The discounted shopping panflet was not on my LA/Zurich flight.... so I didn't see it and did not buy then.... And on my second part of the trip Zurich/Nice they refused to sell me to me from the Duty Free because they didn't have time..... :( The dark hair flight attendant in the back of that plane was not informative or nice....I had to talk to the head flight attendant in the front of the plane, she was more professional! Other than that everything was good!"
Pros: "Clear, relatively comfortable plane. Free ski bag."
Cons: "Again, incredibly unhelpful re: my unusual situation. Flight attendants rigid and unkind to the woman next to me with a dog in a case. Almost like automatons. But that's typically Swiss, which I appreciate but they could definitely humanize a bit more!"
Pros: "The planes are clean and relatively comfortable."
Cons: "Extremely rigid rules. My flight was the day of the blizzard in Boston, Tues, 3/13. Despite 5 calls to Swiss to reroute me out of Montreal, an airport I could actually get to, they would not relent. I finally just drove there and a really nice agent changed my flight since Logan was closed and all public transport was shut down. Even if my scheduled flight from boston wasn't canceled (I have no idea) they were incredibly unhelpful about the fact that I physically could not get to logan in time for my flight. (Mass DOT was asking everyone to stay off ALL roads). THEN on the way home, they would NOT let me fly back to Montreal where my car was!! WAY TOO RIGID RULES. Screw the customer!"
Cons: "Boarding chaotic- no clear lines people pushing ahead which I am not used to- my handluggage was ok’ed at origin in US- was pulled aside in Zurich based on my “ ticket”- it was perfectly well suited and not oversized. In plane half of overhead compartments were filled with coats when told that these should go under seats. No consistency between announcements and behavior of crew."
Pros: "There was water to drink"
Cons: "Plane felt like a 1990 air France flight. Cabin dated. The least amount of room I can remember on a plane. When sitting upright and the person in front reclined, i looked at their head and if I crossed my arms, it would touch the seat in front. Could not pick up pillow that dropped on the floor, could not bend around the seat in front. Very hard to get out to use the toilet. Felt very claustrophobic."
Pros: "staff was very nice"
Pros: "Food is excellent... nice variety plus dessert. Everything was hot & delicious & used metal utensils which was much nicer than plastic."
Pros: "See / hear the middle-aged guy around seat 22 aisle coughing his lungs out throughout the 10 hour flight without once covering his mouth ? WTF is going on w an airline that would let a passenger behave like this ? Didn’t see the attendants offering a cough drop, or asking if he would please behave like a civilized human being. Looking for others corroboration. Spread the word like this guy this w his germs"
Cons: "A grown man coughing loudly during a 10 hr flight w/o once covering his mouth"
Pros: "The next best thing to the hard-working and kind crew was the lighting design. Meals were OK, and I was delighted that the vegan meals I ordered for my travel companion were right there as ordered. Not a common occurrence of late, I’m afraid, so I congratulate Swiss one getting this one right."
Cons: "Legroom is non-existent. This was by far the most uncomfortable aircraft I have ever flown on, with the possible exception of an Ilyushin 62 operated by Tarom in 1983. I felt bad for the man in front of me, with my knees in his back. That is, until he reclined his seat and put my video screen in my face. Not much to watch anyway, but it was impossible to lean forward at all. Boarding at JFK was rather chaotic."
Pros: "No assists"
Cons: "Poor service"
Pros: "Service was great, friendly and courteous crew, smooth take off and touch down, meal was the best I've had traveling. Very long tiring flight, good hospitality is always appreciated."
Cons: "There was a short delay on take off but we arrived on time. The only problem that I encountered half way into a long tiring flight, I lost the volume on the entertainment system. The stewardess tried to reset it but it didn't work. I was asked to change seats but it was too much of a hassle. Was a bit disappointed. Not there fault."
Pros: "Great Food and very pleasant personnel."
Cons: "Choices of music and movies."
Pros: "Or print out a boarding pass. Much unlike our experience with Lufthansa flying from Boston through Frankfurt to Geneva."
Cons: "See sbove"
Pros: "Flight attendants where very nice and attentive. Good choice of movies and shows for adults and kids. I usually don't eat airplane food but it looked fresh and my kids enjoyed the breakfast very much with fresh baked bread and croissant. My flight was delayed by one hour but it was a problem caused by the airport not the airline. I still made my connection and I received my suitcaises right away."
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic"
Cons: "Worst experience. Very rude employees. Not great flexibility with carry on luggage beware"
Pros: "Everything was great :) food is good, crew is perfect"
Cons: "The bar between the seats is not going up all the way"
Cons: "Minimalist breakfast."
Cons: "Was asked to give up my aisle seat (D 40) seat om a 13 hour flight for a less comfortable one (F). Put on the spot to give up my seat for a couple with a 6 month old infant due to the fact that the attachable bassinet had to be in front of the D seat. Neither the parent or myself felt very good about my displacement."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and friendly. That is a great thing since it's a long flight. Very well prepared! Entertainment was nice lots of options there to keep you busy."
Cons: "I wasn't pleased with their meals so that it's important when it's a long flight, and not many choices available."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever experienced. The seats were too small. It was torture for a 12 hour flight. Need more space and padding in the seats."
Pros: "Great kosher food!"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Crew was very nice & humble"
Cons: "Food quality could be better it was tasteless very low standards, & boarding crew in Chicago or in Mumbai needs training because they don't want to give you a choice for food or the seat From Zurich to India & they runout off Nonveg food & crew was telling they have only veg take it or leave it samething Zurich to Chicago if the boarding crew do write thing then this could be avoided ."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class. Very professional and attentive crew."
Pros: "service personnel were excellent. Espresso is great."
Cons: "Business class main meal was disappointing."
Pros: "Entertainment and food were excellent, and the crew was pleasant and helpful. The small extras were delightful - i.e. warm cloths at the end of the flight! Overall, I think Swiss is a very good airline."
Cons: "On a long flight like this, the seating is still too cramped. We are not large people, and nine hours in those seats is difficult, even with considerate 'neighbors'. The seats are just too close together. This is an airport comment - Deboarding to a bus, then a walk to the train/tram, then security, then another walk to the gate - we barely made our connecting international flight."
Cons: "Terrible flight had to delay few times , we had to wait inside in the plane for more than 2 hours , they had me to check im my carry on in geneva layover even i had a personla stuff inside and with no lock , rude crew i never even fly with suiss i had toncome back with lugthansa because they had to delay the flight again"
Pros: "Excellent inflight experience with the entertainment; snacks were plenty, crew was very efficient."
Cons: "Notithing to dislike comes to mind."
"Great customer service. Safety and cleanliness. Fly delta."
"2hours delayed and didn't give notification right away 🤷♀️. I even lost my food to rush to go to the airport. Paid $60 for seafood plate ending just leave it almost halfway on my way to the airport find out the flight was delayed. I wish they have more accurate policy to let passengers knows for any problems about the flight as soon or as early they can"
"I like that I got to my destination safely."
"The TSA screening is absolutely unnecessary. It is dehumanizing and has been proven to be in-effective!"
"Anyone that purchased a Delta 1st Class seat should have access to the Delta Sky Club. My wife and I purchased 1st Class tickets for a Delta flight from SeaTac to Washington Dulles but were denied entrance to the SeaTac Delta Sky Club because we did have an American Express card."
"Really accommodating staff, and on flight amenities. I would fly with Delta again."
Pros: "The seats were very good. The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "We had a connection in Detroit. The flight from Seattle to Detroit arrived about 30 minutes late, and we barely made the connection. Apparently Delta had not told the Detroit-Boston flight to wait a few minutes for us. We did make the connection, but we arrived at the gate with no seat assignment (we had been bumped the day before from our original flight because of a mechanical problem) as the plane was loading. Had we missed the flight, we would have had to spend the night in Detroit and go to Boston the next day. Delta should have told the gate agent that we were coming."
Pros: "Crew attentive, professional, appeared to be enjoying job with full plane."
Cons: "The mew food boxes in furst class taste terrible."
Pros: "Sitting in the exit row"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Mask enforcement"
Pros: "Clean safe comfortable plane seats. friendly staff."
Cons: "A small credit for miles as the Wifi didn’t work."
Cons: "Having cocktails available on-board"
Cons: "The exit row that I paid up for, for leg room, didn't have extra leg room. First world problems."
Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "The boarding did not go on time. An announcement about why would have been nice. Still made it on the flight on time."
Pros: "This was a redeye flight which are never the best. We upgraded to first class for a chance to sleep. The sanitizing of the aircraft was beyond expectations. The personal wipes were a plus so we could clean the areas around our seats to our satisfaction. The individual snack bags are a great idea to minimize handling."
Pros: "It was nice that the plane was not packed full."
Cons: "Box water instead of water bottles. The seat wasn’t very comfortable since it wouldn’t recline."
Cons: "The Seattle gate agents never said which flight they were calling and since neighboring gates were boarding at the same time it was very confusing and rather chaotic."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive. I appreciated the extra spacing between passengers."
Cons: "I would have liked to see alcohol served."
Pros: "There was an amazing variety of tv shows and movies. That is essential for long flights like ours was."
Cons: "For long haul flights, I am used to being offered a pillow/blanket, even when sitting in economy."
Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"
Pros: "Everything from hospitality to the ease of the flight. Captain communicated to put all at ease during this time in which this pandemic has gotten many fearful of flying. Great landing as well."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "flight left without 1/6 of the passengers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯"
Pros: "Crew was great, flight in general was okay"
Cons: "The plane itself and seating was filthy, some unknown substance fell on me from the vent above, there was a bunch of crumbs in the seat buckle that fell out all over my lap when I fastened it. I'm not sure the tray table was wiped down, or at least not very well. The in-flight tracker was completely incorrect, I was on a 4-hour flight and it read 14 hours and counting throughout."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No leg room for 6’6” person."
Pros: "Average flight. Crew was polite."
Cons: "On time performance. Barely made my connecton, because of flight delay. Seems like only 1 in 5 flights are on time according to flightaware.com."
Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."
Pros: "I love all the complementary stuff on flight"
Cons: "Better ear buds"
Pros: "Everything! Thank you"
Cons: "Nothing. Thanks"
Cons: "Food really bad on both segments."
Cons: "2 seats and neither tv/entertainment centres worked....unacceptable on a 10 hr flight!"
Cons: "Compared to Virhin Australia crew, Delta staff seem almost poorly trained in comparison. For example, Drlta crew don’t check your pass, don’t immediately move down the aisle to move along tourists busy discussing their seats and then line up for Boarding seems chaotic at best."
Pros: "The entertainment was nice."
Cons: "If the screen wasn’t behind the seat. I could hear the tapping of the person behind me."
Cons: "Departure delayed by 1hr30"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight because the first flight was delayed by 2.5 hours. I didn’t get the comfort seat I paid for because of this and was not given a refund for it."
Pros: "I think they flew so fast. We could land almost on time even though we departed a hour late. Airplane was new and clean."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. They overbooked 25? 45? Anyway, they are in panic. They tried to request ppl to take next day flight by giving away 300 gift card etc. the ppl who were told there are no seats upset and arguing at the gate. Flight was delayed for one hour. Once we are on airplane, they are still shuffling seats around, so ppl cannot move forward. Just standing there for 10mins waiting for things to settle. Flight attendants did not give us a headphone. (I have a headphone for iPhone X so I could not connect it to their entertaiment system.)"
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."
Cons: "Partner site said it was Aeromexico. First flight was delta so different check bag policy for internal flight that cost me $80. Screw you all"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flight delay further to the 30 minutes additional 20 min due to crew being not there"
Pros: "Nothing, they didn’t care about you or to help, the llady was so rude and unfriendly, this situation ruin my whole trip"
Cons: "I call in advance to paid the fees for baggage, I call Aeromexico because was the main airline for the fly, but Delta at Seattle made me paid again the fees for baggage’s even by phone they said that I didn’t need to paid. BE AWARE AND CAREFUL BECAUSE THE LADIES IN THE FRONT DESK didn’t even look the paperwork that you have in hand, they only want to charge you saying that your payment thru Aeromexico didn’t help you in the 1st fly. How this can happen when Delta and Aeromexico are two subsidiary one of another ?"
Pros: "Boarding is easy as always, I like Delta's system."
Cons: "I had a seat by an exit door. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight due to the cold air comin in and hitting my feet / legs. Two coats and a blanket weren't enough to remedy the issue."
Pros: "It was whatever"
Cons: "Seat, did not get upgraded"
Pros: "Great service, very comfortable."
Pros: "The service on board is always GREAT! in Aeromexico"
Cons: "The flight was canceled and we were put in another flight next night. But the staff in Buenos Aires run the situation chaotically and made mistakes that infuriated many passengers. They need more training to learn how to say "I am sorry" more often and know how to avoid getting into arguments with passengers."
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Pros: "Good Snacks, crew is friendly, toilet was clean and we arrived on time"
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline."
Cons: "Food was so hot that it was difficult to remove the packaging to be able to eat the pasta.... Desert was ok, brownie was real hard and too sweet...."
Cons: "The least leg room in any flight I’ve taken. We had requested vegetarian and the flight from Frankfurt to Nairobi gave our meal to other passengers.they told us we had to eat the best dish or nothing. This on an 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Staff was extremely nice and helpful"
Cons: "Check-in Seattle was ill organized and folks cut and groused"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Maybe not have my luggage lost and get rebooked to a later flight for no reason"
Pros: "Flew Business Class with miles program (United). Lufthansa always gives good basic flight experience. Watched two movies so saved some time at home. Lounges are getting better every time I fly. They are especially good, understandably, in Frankfurt."
Cons: "Nada. They get the job done."
Pros: "Crew were great. Very friendly & helpful"
Cons: "Lufthansa really need to serve something better than high school cafeteria grade food"
Cons: "No proper wheel chair assistant and made passenger miss the flight. Airlines have to take extra steps to make wheel chair passengers to reach the gate safely and on time."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, boarded promptly"
Cons: "Food could have been better."
Pros: "Tv screens, free beverages, frequent service"
Cons: "The single most cramped and uncomfortable flying experience of my life. The chair in front of me recliner lined to 4 inches in front of my nose. Couldn’t move legs or arms for 10 hours because it was so tightly packed. I couldn’t believe it was legal to fit that many people that closely together."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "My seat was next to bathrooms when everyone start using it start smelling too much very uncomfortable sitting there. Food chicken was very salted, they run out of drinks 10 hours flight dinner served at begging no snacks or anything till 2 hours before landing"
Cons: "At least air fresheners in bathrooms or something better so passengers can sit comfortably"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly. The seats were new. The movie selection was good."
Cons: "The scrambled eggs for breakfast appeared to be powered eggs, or overcooked eggs. The storage bins for the luggage were very small for the middle seats (aircraft was an Airbus A330-200). After several hours of flying, there was trash in the aisles and on the toilet floor. The toilets were dirty and not cleaned. Finally, the toilets ran out of paper towels and tissues with 3 hours to go in the flight, and they were never refilled. The flight attendants put a roll of toilet paper next the sink to use for your hands."
Pros: "Lufrhansa is a fantastic airline"
Cons: "The seat pitch and width were too small."
Pros: "flight attendant found me a seat away from the screaming babies."
Cons: "I was surrounded by about 6 babies. This is not acceptable for a long flight! I would like to have options as to where I sit. There should be a baby section where families pay more to be in a section on their own!!"
Pros: "We purchased seats with extra legroom. They were well worth the extra cost as we were very comfortable."
Cons: "Very bad food"
Cons: "There was no entertainment in the flight , which was totallyfine for me as it was a short flight; I downloaded one magazine prior to my initial flight in SFO but was unable to access it."
Pros: "Good plane and service"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and efficient. Flight was ready to leave on time but was delayed due to security concerns at Sea Tac airport; even though the flight arrived on time."
Cons: "I did not have a problem with anything."
Pros: "Food was ok. Beer offered at no charge. Lots of entertainment options"
Cons: "Plane was HOT no air and economy was unbelievably cramped and uncomfortable. 9 1/2 hr flight was torture"
Pros: "Staff were nice and friendly."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. The seatback was not clean, and the tray table was stained. The 9-hour flight did not have any USB ports or outlets for charging. The touchscreen did not work well, and my seat would not move forward or back without me pushing or pulling it. This"
Pros: "It was an overall good experience. Very well organized. Since both legs of the flight we're half-empty, it was easier on the crew too. They were nice and helpful. Everything very clean. Entertainment choices were good. Had an excellent entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was kind of bland."
Pros: "It’s amazing. Fast and comfortable."
Pros: "Crew is very friendly, seats are extremely comfortable and good room overall, comfortable flight."
Cons: "Hi, To be honest, it was embarrassing to serve that dish on such a major airline. Chicken with bbq sauce and corn or something like that. Was distasteful I couldn’t take more than 2 small bites."
Pros: "The Entertainment, the Food and the nice and friendly manner of all personell."
Pros: "Such great personnel in the air - can't say enough how much I appreciated them."
Cons: "The airline as a whole, however, encourages you to book with them under the reasonable assumption that connecting flights with Lufthansa will be achievable. Now that I've seen Frankfurt, There was no way they could actually expect any of us to make our connecting flights. And they offer no compensation. When I did get another flight, it was terribly delayed. Talking in line with regular European travelers, they said they expect it. Also met several fliers at the service desk attempting to connect via entirely different routes, all having the same experience."
Cons: "Crew was not nice at all. They would skip us along the way while serving others, or even drop ice on us, and never said sorry once (instead, they would say it's only ice, or if I want 2 since they skipped me already twice when serving tea unlike the passengers around me on both sides). We paid nearly $6k for the 3 of us, but the crew made us feel as if we paid nothing. The entertainment system did not work well, and most of the time the movies refused to play. We were always suggested to restart, and were not even given free access to internet as an alternative. No one ever apologized for anything in the entire flight, it felt like this flight was a favor."
Pros: "Flight went smoothly boarding was a little delayed."
Cons: "Getting to gate 10 minutes after boarding time and no one had boarded yet."
Pros: "Everything was generally good and normal"
Cons: "Except the plane was roasting and had no vents"
Pros: "Service , on time"
Pros: "Services, Food, Crew"
Cons: "IFE doesn't had much options."
Pros: "service, care for my 85 pound dog and his kennel while traveling halfway across the globe! Thank you! Flight was smooth, services on board excellent."
Pros: "Aircraft crew was decent."
Cons: "Seattle to Frankfurt aircraft was the dingiest and most crammed aircraft I have ever used on an international leg. The seats were tiny so much so that some other passengers were not able to fit in! The lighting was gloomy, restroom dirty within the first hour of the flight, no space to keep any magazine or books on the back rest of the seat in front of you, etc. Overall - such a bad experience. Not expected from Lufthansa, especially as I have had great experience with Lufthansa earlier."
Pros: "The view - flying low over the northern extremes of Canada was superb. Thanks to the pilots etc."
Cons: "The flight was late arriving at Frankfurt. I requested a notification to my connecting flight. Crew member frowned, turned away and in formed me, "We don't do that". I ran to the Connecting Lufthansa flight and barely made it on time."
Pros: "Boarding was done very quickly. Unlike the norm nowadays, people weren't cramming every single inch of space in the overhead. In addition, the flight wasn't full so my travel companion got to enjoy a full row to himself while I enjoyed an empty seat next to me to stretch out. The food was very good. The staff came by quite a few times to offer orange juice or water. The entertainment syren was excellent. I watched four full movies on the trip and have in mind at least a couple more for the return leg."
Cons: "Not a thing."
Pros: "Lots of room on a 747 - Lufthansa will probably retire them all soon. They handled my special meal request online and loaded the meals on the plane."
Cons: "The crew didn’t bother to confirm who had requested the special meals, and they perhaps were confused by the size of the wide body rows, so they served my dinner to the passenger in the window seat (seat K) instead of me (seat H) By the time I realized what had happened, my row mate had eaten half the meal. The crew also rammed my knee with a beverage cart while I was dozing. Not the best showing ever..."
Pros: "service, good quick flight"
Cons: "late departure in Frankfurt; high noise level of the Embraer plane;s engines; failing AC in the cabin"
Cons: "There was light turbulence in some parts during the flight but the captain never turned the "fasted hour seatbel on" sign which was strange."
Cons: "Crew members were awful and rude and unhelpful. I landed in Munich and had to run to my next flight and when I asked a Lufthansa staff for help in making my connecting flight he turned to me and said "I don't care-this isn't my problem" upon finally making it for last boarding call to my next flight the staff were rude and unhelpful-I was so stressed I literally had a stomachache and felt completely unwelcome."
Pros: "The crew were very helpful and polite. The seats had plenty legroom. The food was excellent, and entertainment was also very good. Most importantly, there was no delay."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very helpful. She went out of her way to bring me a special tea. Large selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Food could've had more healthier choices. Also, kid-friendly food would've been a plus. Not enough leg room. Headphones were only working for one ear which is really bad for the ears. Air conditioning was really turned on really high and gave me a headache and the sniffles. I started throwing up during landing time. Horrible."
Pros: "Our attendents were clearly focused on our needs. Efficient and still very human and kind. A real treat."
Pros: "COMFORT AND ENTERTAINMENT WAS BEST"
Cons: "BOARDING SLOW CREW A BIT RUDE"
Cons: "A kid next to me keep shifting and kick me and nudge me all the time. His dad was trying to stop him from moving too much but couldn't control entirely. I kept waking up"
Pros: "Lufhansa did a great job. During flights, everything was good."
Cons: "Security check in Frankfurt was terrible, violating all human rights in every possible way! Please don't tell me that it is for passengers safety; such a humiliation cannot be justified by any reason! Since Lufthansa uses this airport for the most of their flights, I would not fly with this company anymore"
Cons: "We were told by the Delta baggage handler that they strike one day each quarter. This would have been helpful information before we booked our flight from Kayak. We had to delay our honeymoon by 12 hours and fly into a different airport. Delta was great though and the Luthanza agent who rescheduled us was also great."
Pros: "Check in smooth and professional. Please change places with Asia air so you are in front of rather than behind the hoard of people."
Cons: "On my flight from Seattle to Frankfurt I had one stewardess repeatedly skip me. She was a bit older. I thought after the first overlook she would take extra care but did not. This resulted in me having to ask the crew to repeat their previous steps just for me. "Hi, I know you are serving coffee but I wanted red wine". She was a bit clipped about having to repeat steps but what was I to do? She never looked up enough to see my hand and clearly didn't look at my face. She also didn't pick up my hand towel. I essentially had to rely on the rest of the crew but the care from this lady started to feel purposefully negligent of me. The rest of the staff was friendly and efficient. I also thought we were supposed to get an appertiff...one was never offered. Couldn't check in online. Was fine once I got to the countr but could you trade space with Asia air? It makes sense to have them at the end as they have a huge hoard of people it would be nice not to have to go through and several spots to check in. Check in at the desk otherwise was smooth and professional."
Pros: "The crew was especially great!"
Pros: "Nice food"
Pros: "The plane condition."
Cons: "The flight attendants could have served some drinks in between the meals. They actually refused to serve something additionally when asked."

Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Cons: "Delay due to strike"
Cons: "The plane is so old..,"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight on schedule and good entertainment."
Cons: "Space is just reasonable on a long flight, even if there's seats more spacious that you could choose if you pay more."

Pros: "Very friendly crew and on time with no problems."
Cons: "Staff rude and short"
Pros: "Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Seats not great for such a long flight."
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"
Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."
Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."
Pros: "Like the overall KLM experience"
Cons: "Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses."
Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"
Pros: "Everything was good except for the entertainment consul for one of our seats."
Cons: "One of our entertainment consuls had to be rebooted 4 times and still didn’t work. We gave up asking."
Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."
Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"
Pros: "The crew was efficient. Flight left on time. Food and wine served."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."
Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"
Cons: "2 hours on the tarmac delayed with no explanation. Uncomfortable seats, no leg room. Poor management of seating, there was enough empty seats to have groups together but they were split up. Drinks served from a communal bottle in a polystyrene cup."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."
Pros: ".Very much on time with pleasant service."
Cons: "Can nit find much fault fir a short run!"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."

Cons: "old plane, tight and uncomfortable"
Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "magazines very dog eared and some badly torn"
Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
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."
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."

Pros: "Enough space good wine and on time"
Pros: "If you would like to learn more you can call me 628.600.8825 Very dissapointed"
Pros: "Short flight friendly crew"
Cons: "Good flight nothing to complain about. Was spoiled by the entertainment choices on the longer flights."
Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."
"Kayak was terrible, I was told that I got 1 free checked bag, but when I got to the check-in counter I was told otherwise and had to pay for my checked bag!!!!"
"As I said, very nice and pleasant flight, neatly perfect. I will consider Finnair for sure again when I travel to Europe next time."
"Very nice experience with Finnair, especially transatlantic flights. Professional crew, excellent service, scheduled on time, headache free environment, very clean and looks like new airplane. Only positive emotions. However, the aircrafts on domestic or short range flights look outdated, and definitely there is room for service improvement."
Pros: "Finnair is always perfect. Always on time, professional, clean and comfortable. They give free coffee, water and blueberry juice."
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! I never knew that Finnair was such a great airline."
Cons: "Honestly, nothing could have been better."
Cons: "Arrival to destination with 7 hours delay."
Cons: "I purchased a ticket that included one checked bag but their system said I purchased a ticked which didn’t include any checked luggage and I had to pay $60 to check my bag. Very frustrating!"
Pros: "Free WiFi in the air. Email received in air tracking missing luggage. Stressful to receive, but at least I could see where it was & when it would arrive. Didn’t order a meal, but there was a wide variety of snacks for purchase. Very nice crew. Great leg room."
Cons: "Missing luggage. WiFi spotty."
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "I couldn’t change my seat"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and pilot did a great job"
Cons: "No food and very limited beverage service. No entertainment,"
Pros: "Very nice staff. Probably one of the best flights"
Pros: "Fast connection in Helsinki!"
Cons: "Delay in JFK, old aircrafts and mulfunctioned entertainment equipment."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Pros: "It was comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "It was all good."
Pros: "The shortest flight time between NYC and St. Petersburg Russia. Good connecting time, smooth transition in Helsinki."
Cons: "I have never used this airline before and as it was highly rated, I was glad to give it a try. The seats were crammed together very tightly, even for me, a short person! So, the flight was uncomfortable. Then the food was poor. The selection of films was uninspired. The service was indifferent, disinterested, ungenerous. There was something meager, miserly in the whole experience. They are obviously maximizing profits at the expense of the customer, who seems totally disregarded. I would not choose this airline again!"
Pros: "the food given under gluten free food was amazing on FinnAir"
Pros: "The experience of crew and polite behaviour."
Cons: "Not knowing clearly what airline or flight to take. Was not listed on my first initial ticket. Also I could not check in online at all."
Cons: "They run out of food choices by the time they got to me."
Pros: "Far better quality and value than BA, it's OneWorld partner."
Cons: "It was all good."
Cons: "Experience was totally let down by the airport; nothing to blame the aircraft staff though. Avoid Helsinki airport like the plague for stopovers: bad signage, woeful information how to get to the city efficiently in English. HORRIBLE experience when trying to get lost property: you got to PAY for your initial email or pay top dollar just for a stupid and aggravating phone call!!! The number of exclamation marks is not exaggerated here. You can't even ask if they even have the item in their possession. Rarely had such a bad experience at an airport, and I travel a lot for work. This alone makes me think thrice about EVER getting Finnair again. Same company that manages the airport, so I'm giving this flight a bad review."
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."
Pros: "I'm so happy to be able to travel with my small dog in cabin. I've travelled from Miami to Helsinki and back with a dog at least 30 times in the last 16 years. The service has always been very good. I choose the airline always based on what's best for my dog."
Cons: "the flight was 2 hours delayed."
Pros: "FLIGHT & COMFORT WERE OK AIRCRAFT NEW AND WELL MAINTAINED MINIMAL SERVICE BUT CONSIDERING THE PRICE IT WAS OK THE AIRLINE PROVIDES SOME DRINKS FOR FREE (BUT...)"
Cons: "POOR ENTERTAINMENT I PURCHASED FOOD AND IT WAS LESS THAN OK THE AIRLINE ACTUALLY PROVIDES COFFEE, TEE, WATER AND "JUICE" FOR FREE BUT IT IS NOT CLEARLY EXPLAINED"
Pros: "My luggage was found and collected and transfered for me by Phillipines Airlines staff at Hong Kong airport."
Cons: "Wasn't given vegetarian option for food and don't eat meat."
Pros: "There was like 5 movies to choose from and 2 shows, all the movies old and my screen kept on getting stuck"
Pros: "The Airbus 330 is an improvement over the Boeing 737 that took me to Europe (via Milan) on this trip. Unlike that flight, this plane is equipped with an updated on demand entertainment system. I attribute the upgraded airplane to the fact that this was a direct flight from HEL to JFK. Still no wifi though... Their magazine says it's coming. Upgrading to Economy Comfort is worth the fee especially if you get a bulkhead seat. Otherwise you are still pretty crammed in with maybe 6" more leg room. But the bulkhead seats are set well back from the wall to give my long legs plenty of room to stretch and get in and out of my seat. My friends in Economy looked miserable :( The chili con carne with rice was an improvement over other airline meals but still room for improvement - mostly in presentation I guess. Lingonberry 'salad' though a bit sour for me, was a nice Finnish dish to sample. Like the cheese and crackers. Departed and arrived on time. Liked the flight tracking that showed you very detailed what you were passing over and even gave us a bit of info and photos about highlights of each region flown over. Nice touch."
Cons: "This plane was such an improvement over the "bucket" that flew me to Europe that it has restored my faith in Finnair as a valid carrier for my yearly trip to Europe - like I said, probably because it is a direct flight to New York rather than connecting to another European (not Scandanavian) city like Milan. I would probably not use Finnair to access other parts of Europe for this reason. (On the departure end, the regional Finnair flight from Milan to Helsinki was also sub-standard.) I do think the check-in procedure is still cumbersome - self check in with bag check, though started at kiosks, still results in a long line just to hand off your bag to a counter agent. A few more agents would likely solve that problem... But it was better than going the other way - JFK was a nightmare! Helsinki only slightly better."
Pros: "Comfortable seat and service"
Pros: "Perhaps that we eventually got there and that the plane did not crash"
Pros: "This was a very good and on time flight from London to Helsinki. The exit row had lots of legroom."
Pros: "Great service, great food, and comfortable seats."
Cons: "No room on flight ran out of wine and food before getting to the back 1/3 of plane where I was sitting I can say one of the worst travel flights I've ever had"
Pros: "Plane was on time Checked luggage arrived I slept for the duration of the trip which made the 5 hour flight OK."
Cons: "Legroom and seating in general is cramped. But unfortunately that is the case in today's travel experience with US carriers."
Pros: "Food was provided when the flight was delayed for 2 1/2 hours. I also really liked the text update from kayak about the delay. The airline did not keep me updated but kayak did."
Cons: "The delay when it was already a 6 hour flight. I also was not able to reserve a seat because I had booked through kayak and not with the airline. Finally of the most irritating of all annoyance was that there was no movie. This was an international flight and there was no entertainment. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Very old plane, seats did not have personal entertainment systems"
Pros: "the price was very good"
Pros: "I booked the seats with extra room - really glad I did. The food wasn't bad, the entertainment system worked. I definitely prefer the Virgin Atlantic entertainment system, but I fly AA fairly often and will continue to."
Cons: "The airport check-in was absolutely terrible. We were in line so long that an employee came up to us and said "I can't believe you're still here." Neither could I. We get to the airport at least three hours early because of stuff like this, but the incredibly slow line and unorganized way of handling it ate any of the time I'd looked so forward spending at Heathrow (I love hitting Boots etc)."
Cons: "Experienced very rude cabin crew"
Pros: "Called BA (the carrier for our FinnAir flight) when I couldn't check in (didn't have a booking number that worked). Staff member did tell me that all was in order with our booking. He wasn't able to check us in anyway, as something was amiss with 'the system'. In the end all worked out fine, we just made sure to get to the airport early to make sure we got decent seats."
Cons: "A bit nerve wracking to see online that our flight information 'could not be found' when trying to check in with the booking numbers I had!"
Pros: "Everything good except getting bag after flight."
Cons: "Took over an hour at baggage claim."
Pros: "The more modern plane with USB ports that actually charge and the higher quality and bigger displays really help make the trip more enjoyable."
Cons: "Not as much to eat on this BA flight back to Philidelphia from Hethrow as there was on the American Airlines flight there."
Pros: "Movies Food Comfortable seating"
Cons: "Going through security"
Pros: "Nice dinner, drinks, and snack services"
Cons: "Could be a little friendlier. Lights on the whole time during a red eye was pretty annoying. Don't know if this was on purpose or a malfunction. Entertainment system was hard to see and a little outdated."
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "The energy of the crew was upbeat despite the lock of enertainment they tried their best by accommodating my various wishes."
Cons: "They were no snacks available except the ones that we had to pay for - which in fact I thought was a bit pretentious towards the passengers."
Pros: "The staff was very nice and attentive. Boarding was timely and flight landed 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Long flight with no screens on the back of the seats with personal entertainment options. Furthermore, I had a middle seat and my shoulders kept knocking into my neighbors. Worst of all, my seat didn't incline as far as the people on either side of me. Sleeping is already hard on a plane, and this made it way worse...not to mention my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me the whole time."
Pros: "I loved the flight it was o. Time the flight crew was great"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "The boarding process was expedient and the food was ok and standard for these flights."
Cons: "I travel at least 1 week a month either to Europe, South America or across the United States. The Airplaine was extremely old and looked like it was not refurbished at all since the 90's. Unlike basically every other airline (including airlines from the developing world) the plane did not have a personal entertainment system which is rather vexing considering the flight is so long. The decoration of the plane looked old and worn. The crew were more interested in getting the job done quickly than properly."
