Read more about SWISS

Pros: Staff, not fully booked, lots of food and snacks
Cons: Rushing from one terminal to another because the flights were too close together for my itinerary

Cons: A solution to the seat problem. If the seat only reclined 1/2 the distance they do now, the flight would be enjoyable.

Pros: Crew was very helpful
Cons: More entertainment

Pros: The crew was so helpful and they feed us well. We relieved a snack, a meal, and a desert. The airline left on time and arrived early to my destination. Very enjoyable flight.

Cons: My luggage is lost

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

Cons: Better entertainment for an 8 hour flight. Take under consideration that tall guys can’t be squeezed in for 8 hours.Give some space to people who really need it

Pros: Very friendly and cooperative crew. Entertainment is well upated with latest media.
Cons: Nothing

Pros: crew
Cons: children entertainment

Pros: It was a lovely easy flight, always lovely flying star alliance.
Cons: Such a quick flight, everything was appropriate for that. Unsure exactly what would make it better

Pros: Good service
Cons: Valencia is probably the least user friendly airport. Security personnel there are unbearable. Boarding took unnecessarily long. Luggage took close to 30 min in Zurich

Cons: Very hot on board

Pros: Food was great, creww was very nice
Cons: Following our request, such has being seated next to each other and not only having one person being upgraded when we're two.

Pros: Crew was very attentive, information from the cockpit was enough to let us know but not disruptive
Cons: Boarding was one long line that other passengers in the airport had to walk through. This was difficult for passengers with kids and those with needed special accommodations Ike wheelchairs, canes etc

Pros: The crew was very friendly. Family line was nice when travelled with the little ones.
Cons: I It will be helpful if the Gate information available within 6 hours of the flight. We don't have gate information and our flight within 3.5 hours. But overall wonderful experience.

Pros: Nothing, flight was cancelled after I electronically checked in
Cons: Flight was cancelled

Pros: The crew were great and boarding went very smoothly.
Cons: After such a smooth boarding we found we had to sit on the tarmac for an hour because of congestion at Zurich.

Pros: I slept with the jazz music...didn't hear a baby that was crying the whole flight...

Pros: Excellent airline. The flights are always on time and the email notifications make it easy to print out boarding passes and go right to the gate.
Cons: The seating and leg room is quite cramped

Cons: 2.5 hour delay, missed connection, arrived more than 5 hours after originally planned. Entertainment system did not function. Crew did not collect garbage/unused items prior to landing and I was holding garbage in my hands during landing (and some spilled on my lap).

Pros: Was good

Pros: In time and fine boarding.
Cons: One of the stewards was a bit strange. Something between very alert and ignoring some passenger. The food on short flights are low quality. Would be nice if it was possible to buy something else.

Pros: Quick trip :-)
Cons: 45 minute delay, but those are pretty understandable and unavoidable.

Cons: I couldn’t take it. To travel to pass through Canada you need a Visa

Pros: After almost completely adapting to the spartan amenities of US domestic airlines, my recent SWISS flight had a too-good-to-be-true quality that rendered my travel companion and I giddy with delight. My dinner (one of three food services) consisted of chicken, potatoes, steamed broccoli, salad, a dinner roll with butter, gruyere, and a strawberry tart... included cream and sugar signaled an inevitable coffee service. This was accompanied by complimentary wine and sparkling water, and heavy-weight stainless cutlery. The seat reclination was good, and the in-flight entertainment was a cut above. Coming off many Frontier flights with pay-for-beverage service, no leg-room, and un-reclining seats, it was about as good as coach can get. I'm actually looking at SWISS routes first before I plan my next vacation.

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.

Cons: They left my bag in Switzerland

Pros: Crew was good. Very polite. The plane was old. No place to charge your phone. The in flight screen required the use of a remote which was inconvenient when having to wake up my neighbor to pull it out of the armrest. Food wasn’t great. Skipped the last meal service. It was like flying 20 years ago. Not bad, but not as good as it could be nowadays.

Pros: Flight was fine. The attendants on board were friendly and efficient. The food was nice though there wasn't much variety in drinks.
Cons: It was awful getting boarding passes and paying for check in luggage in Venice. I assumed we couldn't check in early online much like the earlier Lufthansa flight. Then when we got to the airport there were long lines to check in and no machines to self check in. When we finally got to the front of the line the woman said we had to pay for our checked baggage elsewhere and then come back for the boarding passes. Unheard of elsewhere. The people in the office where you pay for checked baggage took their time and chatted and had no sense of urgency. The first woman we spoke to apparently filled out the form incorrectly. We had to rush to get to the plane and we barely made it through long security lines. We almost missed the plane due to the lack of early information and check in, the cumbersome payment process, etc. It was the worst check in process ever.

Pros: Easy, on-time and courteous

Pros: Service was remarkable - food far superior! Will be my airline of choice going overseas.

Pros: Seat assignment had taken into account that we had a 45 minute window to our connecting flight. Everyone very pleasant and helpful. Fantastic help to escort us to our connecting flight so we did not miss it! Did not make us feel rushed even though time was short!
Cons: All good!

Cons: Slight delay.

Pros: The Swiss airline bit was about an hour late. Weather etc. But such things happen. The flight itself was fine. They even served food and a beer.
Cons: The queues at Heathrow for passport control were long. The non-EU q was awful. Luckily the tube was running all night on those lines we needed.

Pros: smooth flight, comfy seats

Cons: The security check point was frustrating. I was detained for :20 regarding my sealed duty free purchase.... Will not shop duty free again on a two-leg itinerary.

Cons: Both flights were excellent. At Zurich airport is were I was disappointed in some staff at the gate. Two employees were rude towards me but the flight home & the staff made up for it for being very friendly & helpful. Over all would fly Swiss air again

Pros: No delays. Good boarding *but I have Senator status so I bypass lines). Food good even on short flight

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.

Pros: zurich a great airport.
Cons: cheese roll

Cons: Small seats ,and temperature too hot

Cons: The seats.

Pros: Crew was really nice, comfortable seat, great experience
Cons: I liked everything

Pros: Excellent flight staff and better than average airplane food.
Cons: If one is over child height and the uncaring person in front of you slams their seat into full recline, one will be miserable on steroids. Swiss Air will not correct the small free space capacity (both pitch and width) most assuredly. Thus, I now fully appreciate why fellow travelers embrace airplane knee protectors. "Don't leave home without them," especially on Swiss Air (emphasis added) !

Pros: Good communication, helpful and friendly staff, usually on time, and better than average food & beverage options.
Cons: Entertainment system is limited and touchscreen was not calibrated so I had to use the handset.

Cons: My flight was last minute canceled and then one of my replacement flights was canceled

Pros: Good was OK and crew were super attentive
Cons: On my return ticket from Vancia to SFO staff at the counter forced me to check in my carry on because it was 1 inch wider than the super narrow box and 11 kg instead of 8 kg which is allowed. However in the inbound trip SFO Valencia l was able to carry the very same carry one with the same weight on the plane. First, it's not acceptable to limit carryon to 8 kilograms for trips including transatlantic segments. I fly a lot with Delta / air France and they have higher limit as it should be. And second, criteria should be applied consostently across Swiss. Why is it no problem from SFO to Velalencia, but it is a problem from Valencia to SFO? Also, online check-in is horrendous and unacceptable in this day and age. SUPER slow and cracked a couple of times on my mobile device

Cons: The seat in front reclined too far. Nice for the recliner, but too far for the person behind unless I wanted to sleep too. I didn't and it was very uncomfortable.

Pros: Incredibly clean plane! I will definitely try to fly Swiss again!

Pros: Great airplane stuf and food








Pros: Crew was amazing. Very attentive and welcoming.

Cons: No baggage space in overheads. Despite being in an early boarding group

Pros: We flew from Anchorage to Boston via Seattle. If there had not been a delay in Anchorage, the flight would have been excellent. However, there was a mechanical problem earlier in the day with a plane to Cincinnati. Our flight was scheduled to leave Anchorage at 4pm, but Delta decided to take our pane from us and use it as a substitute for the original but nonfunctional Cincinatti plane. A ridiculous decision. The Cincinnati people already had missed all their connections, but now all the Seattle people missed theirs as well. When we finally got to Seattle 3 hours late (just before midnight), the desk agent said that Delta had no hotel rooms for us and also no hotel vouchers. We thus had to find a room and pay for it on our own. The next day, we had been rescheduled to Detroit and then on another flight from there to Boston. The flight to Detroit arrived nearly 30 minutes late, and we just barely made our connection. Had we missed it, we would have had to spend that night in Detroit. Delta did its best to keep the two of us together. On the Seattle-Detroit flight we were on opposite sides of the aisle in the same row, but that was in a row right behind a bulkhead, making it easy for us to walk over to each other. On the Detroit-Boston flight we were next to each other. Both flights were completely full, so Delta must have made some effort to keep us together as well as possible.
Cons: Delta should not have made the dumb decision to take the Seattle-bound plane and use it as a substitute for the malfunctioning Cincinnati plane. Delta should have provided accommodations for the stranded travelers once they arrived in Seattle.

Cons: Had unknown jump grade to much better seats No explanation given Too bad it wasn’t on a 6 hour flight

Pros: The crew members were nice and didn't bother while sleep when giving out snacks & drinks (I've had this done to me before, annoying). Plane was comfortable because it wasn't packed, so was able to have a seat empty in-between me. The entertainment offered was really good, the connecting to the Go-inflight WiFi was a bit difficult, but no biggie.
Cons: THE DELTA TERMINAL AT HARTSFIELD AIRPORT, ATLANTA, IS DIS-ORGANIZED!!!! THERE WAS NO ONE GIVING PROPER INSTRUCTIONS FOR DROPPING BAGS OFF, PEOPLE WERE EVERYWHERE IN EVERY KIND OF MADE LINE!!! ALMOST 30 - 40 MINUTES OF WASTED TIME, THIS AND THE SLOWEST TSA PROCESS CAUSED MANY TO PROBABLY MISS THEIR FLIGHTS, INCLUDING ME (THANKFULLY MY FLIGHT WOUND UP BEING 3HS DELAYED - THAT'S NEXT). DELTA SHOULD INFORM TRAVELERS ABOUT TIMES WITH THEIR BAG DROP AND TSA!!! 3HRS TO GET A SMALL PART THAT ONLY TAKES 2 MINUTES TO FIX, I'M VERY GRATEFUL IT WAS FOUND WHILE ON THE GROUND, BUT AFTER 1 AND HALS HOURS COULDN'T WE HAVE JUST CHANGED PLANES!?!?! I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HOME AFTER 10A, WASN'T UNTIL ALMOST 2P..

Pros: everything was just as comforting as it was pre-pandemic

Pros: Being upgraded was a GREAT surprise !
Cons: Nothing

Cons: I waited for over 40 minutes for someone to answer my call button. And then they just turned it off without asking me or anyone in my row if we needed something.

Pros: Quick flight with basic service.

Pros: Crew was nice
Cons: Nothing really

Pros: Pilots and crew were amazing
Cons: It was perfect

Pros: The crew was great and very friendly.

Pros: The little food packets were cool and convenient.

Pros: We've always enjoyed flying Delta and this trip had been just as nice as the previous ones we have taken through this airline.
Cons: Our stewardess/stewards seem to be incredibly cranky on this trip and very unapproachable. They must have been having an "off" day I guess.

Pros: Cleanliness. Safety. Friendly.

Pros: Crew was solid.
Cons: Don’t change my seat. Not on time. No food. Luggage with legally checked firearm sent to the wrong airport.

Pros: Pilots. Flight attendants. Space. Left and arrived on time.

Cons: Nothing that I can think of at the moment

Cons: The mask mandate needs to be voluntary ADA violation

Cons: It was actually quite good, Delta is by far the airline to use compared with the other airlines.

Pros: Crew was great, comfort+ definitely has more leg room.
Cons: Beer not guaranteed on flight for Delta comfort plus.

Cons: The flight was delayed by 3 hours because of storms in Atlanta earlier. This caused us to miss our connection to Fairbanks in Seattle, so we had to spend the night in Seattle at our own cost.

Cons: connecting flight left without 1/6th of its passengers. Stuck at airport now because of Deltas laziness

Pros: Crew is amazing and friendly

Cons: The cabin temperature was very hot

Cons: They ran out of food by the time they got to the back of the plane.

Cons: Flight into Seattle delayed, flight out of Seattle to Minneapolis delayed flights out of Minneapolis to Bismarck delayed. Ran from gate F to gate c24 arrived at 10:23 p.m. Slight to the park at 10:25 p.m. and they closed the door on me as I was running up there. Ran across the entire terminal to get there and they would not let me on. Last Flight of the night to Bismarck. Missed my uncle's 90th birthday party. Would not give me food voucher. Delta gate agent told me she would lose her job if she did not close the doors 8 minutes prior. However the Minneapolis flight waited for 15 minutes for people to board that plane. How does that compute? Why would they not wait 3 minutes for me rather than pay the money to put me up in a hotel?

Cons: Miniature candy bars are not sufficient for an hour and a half flight.

Cons: Food is always bad.

Pros: Good choice of movies but not all have subtitles, which comes in handy since phones are not really good. Food was great!
Cons: Seating pitch is just not acceptable for 10+ hrs long flight! I am tall (1.92 cm) but there are taller people than me and there is just no way they can sit in economy class seat! That is basically some kind of racism..

Cons: It made no sense to board an hour and a half before takeoff.

Pros: Every one but the gate agent at Detroit going to Seattle at 7:40 loading time on 4-11-19. She was mean and curt and would not get my seat corrected I had to sprint for at least a mile to even make it. We landed the same time they were boarding
Cons: The attendants on the Detroit to Seattle flight suggested I go talk to the gate agent to get my seat corrected. They said the flight was not full. So I did. To be greeted again by the mean agent you told me to take my rear and get it on the plane that the attendants didn’t know anything

Cons: Great

Pros: Boarded and left JFK on time and arrived 15 minutes early to Seattle. Love DELTA.

Pros: The nice staff and entertainment options.
Cons: I usually fly delta and have a great experience - unfortunately my flight from Detroit to Seattle was not. To start off, i was flying with two other people and we were not able to get seats together, and the whole seating process with delta is really difficult even when I had called weeks in advance to see if they could try and seat us together. I understand with main cabin tickets you can only choose your seat as you check in, but it would be nice to be able to request seating with a person/group you are flying with. I was placed in the very back row of a busy flight, and noticed that the horrible smell from the bathrooms which made it unpleasant. As said above, I normally have a pleasant experience.. but being a delta sky member I feel as though i do not really receive any differences as to a non-member. I hope this review helps for the next customers! Thank you.

Pros: I like Delta but this crew had such a shi**y attitude it was contagious. Yikes!
Cons: The gate staff and the flight staff. Rude

Pros: We boarded quickly, in zones. Staff were professional and courteous.
Cons: Perhaps more than just 2 episodes of some TV programs eg Goldrush. Also more current shows.

Pros: Delta has great seats, friendly employees and engaged managers and pilots. Even their customer service Center reaches out to help on suggestions. I am flying to Portland for School over 40 round trips and I am saving $4,000 vs Alaska Air. Plus I get miles and discounts with the Delta Amex Card. I am very pleased.
Cons: I don’t like harsh change in schedule fees but it forces me to plan. I wish the Seattle to Portland Eve flight landed in time to catch Portland Rail system at 11:50 PM

Pros: Tons of free entertainment on the screen in front of your seat! Movies, games, and details on your flight, all available on your touch screen. USB charging is also available.
Cons: No one told us they wanted everyone with a roller carry-on to.check their bags. An attendant told my sister that her bag needed to be checked. We did not receive this notification until we were at the gate, boarding.

Pros: I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person.
Cons: Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey.

Pros: The flight was quick and quiet with a kind crew and captain that had a great smile.
Cons: I didn't like the food.

Pros: Very on-time and fast, respectful crew.
Cons: The airplane was old and with no entertainment.

Pros: There were only two lines. The economy line took so long because there were many passengers checking in their fish catch boxes. So those of us with only one baggage were lumped with them. There was no option to tag your own bag if you alr day checked in, as it was the same checking and bag drop line.
Cons: If we were standing in line for a long time, I hope they can increase the number of counters. They can also dispense with the nonsense chitchat. It's not needed, just move it along. The roving staff should to remind those next in line to prepare their documents, it seems the lady at the counter had to ask for photo ID every time!

Cons: Unable to travel due to Corona restrictions, company would not refund ticket.

Pros: Nice crew great sitting
Cons: Boarding has always been slow with this trip.... disorganized

Cons: Excellent! Got us home on time and with great service! Thank you

Pros: Business class upgrade
Cons: Sitting in window next time

Pros: Great

Cons: Best airline! More space between seats. Great service. Great meals and snacks and overall excellent experience! I've travel a lot and no other airline in North America comes close! Thanks!!

Cons: Excellent assisted transfer between Austrian Airlines flight and Lufthansa flight to Seattle in Frankfurt. Boarding in Frankfurt could have been handled easier in groups by seating. Friendly stewards, good entertainement and food options. Quiet B 747 plane, spacious overhead stowage.

Cons: Server was mean

Pros: Lufthansa long haul flights has a really cool air flight status system.
Cons: Sometimes you just get the bad luck of having a smelly passenger next to you. This was one of those flights.

Pros: Everything, I love Lufthansa

Cons: Seats are super tight and very uncomfortable for tall people.

Pros: I booked with Lufthansa, but this was a United flight. I prefer United's boarding process with multiple groups to Lufthansa's single group. Lufthansa's leads to a very very long line 20 minutes before boarding starts.
Cons: United had fewer movie options, fewer meals, and worse food than the Lufthansa flight we took when we traveled to Frankfurt. It was also delayed two hours due to mechanical issues. I will have to pay more attention when I book next time to avoid United flights.

Pros: Crew was good
Cons: No entertainment at all, food was bad

Pros: The crew was fantastic!
Cons: Movie selection was very limited

Pros: I'll probably never fly Basic Economy again....it's worth the extra money.

Pros: Lots of food with free wine

Pros: Flight out was delayed by four and a half hours, missed connection was a pain. Was not aware that Lufthansa changed their policy. To reserve seats you have to pay hundreds of dollars, which was not made clear while booking. Further the quality of their food was significantly degraded.

Pros: They’re very polite persons
Cons: The way they treat people

Pros: I am in love with these guys! They made me feel very welcomed and proved that German quality is the highest one. The crew was just brilliant! Incredible comfort. Thank you!

Pros: So much more comfortable to sit and sleep on such a long flight. Worth every penny!

Pros: Every time I fly Lufthansa I am super pleased with the food. All other aspects fine too.

Pros: Good plane and service
Cons: Ticket check in was unclear, apparently we had to verify our tickets at the gate but there was no sign or previous instruction from the check in counter. I waited through the boarding line only to be told to first verify my ticket. My bags were lost on the Madrid to frankfurt flight, the first part. Unacceptable, if the airline can not schedule flights at their own hub that guarantee swift transfer it us pathetic.

Pros: hot food and some complimentary alcoholic beverages

Pros: The crew - seemed very amenable and pleasant on this flight. One helped me move to effectively solve the acute posture problem.
Cons: The seat - window by request, but it was in front of an emergency exit The seat - is jammed in - very tight - could not put it back to relax, and could not relax my left side by the window. My left shoulder and arm and left hip started hurting - couldn't sleep - took 2 days to get rid of the numbness in my arm. I asked to move, and it became obvious that there were many empty seats in the next section behind. I moved, and my comfort improved. Why was I given such a posture killer - especially on such a very long flight with seats to spare?

Pros: The food and service is always good. In flight entertainment and nice planes!
Cons: To board- it's just a long queue - any way to shorten line so we don't have to stand for so long?

Pros: Comfortable.
Cons: Needed more visible organized pickets showing the seat ranges avoiding mixed lined passengers and delay.

Pros: Punctuality
Cons: No entertainment

Pros: Friendly crew, multiple drink services
Cons: Waited 40 mins after boarding with no explanation as to why we hadn't moved

Cons: My video player had substantially less options than the rest of my aisle. The food was below average.

Cons: Plane was very late; boarding late; short flight so no food or entertainment, but not really a problem. Overall condition of plane was mediocre at best -- old plane, not particularly clean. It was actually Air Canada. If that is a partner of Lufthansa, very disappointed. Would not fly Air Canada again, but LOVE Lufthansa.

Pros: 1. The crew was very pleasant and responsive. 2. The entertainment selections were plenty, recent and without extra cost. 3. The food was nice (if you weren't having meat options). My travel companion was a bit disgusted by the meat. I enjoyed the pasta!
Cons: 1. The seats were extremely uncomfortable without sufficient cushioning. It felt like sitting on a plank. My back still hurts. We also had to straighten up the seats during meals because it was so bad for the person behind. 2. Boarding is a bit disorganized. Perhaps try splitting the boarding process into zones so it isn't a mad house free for all after the initial boarders. 3. On my flight to Frankfurt, the plane was half empty, yet my seat was changed from row 8 where I would have had almost no one near me back to row 23 where they had cramped all the passesngers into one area of the plane. This was done without request or explanation.

Pros: Extremely nice staff starting from check-in and till the end of flight, everything was perfectly on time

Pros: Punctual, efficient, Lufthansa never fail to deliver.

Pros: non stop to Frankfurt very timely scheduleing was able to find reasonably priced flight to meet my travel needs.
Cons: I felt the food was worse not good or tasteless. choices were as bad as previous flight in the fall. I have to bring snacks to make it bearable.

Cons: Awful customer service once out of the airplane. It took 2 hours from landing to get our luggage. Just terrible. How many times can someone hear a generic announcement about luggage being here momentarily? This left a very poor impression of Lufthansa overall for me and everyone in my party.

Pros: Was given an upgraded seat due to the confusion on my confirmed seat being given away.
Cons: Confusion on my confirmed seat assignment caused major frustration when in a foreign country. We took off late so missed my shuttle in Seattle so had to wait 2 hours for the next shuttle.

Pros: Entertainment, flight crew was courteous and helpful, lots of snacks, water, and free wine!
Cons: One of our pieces of luggage did not make it back with us. The good thing is that the Lufthansa staff was helpful, the automated emails kept me informed, and the bag was delivered to me as soon as possible. Seems to me it was as good as it gets when a piece of luggage gets lost.

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: No food service for a evening flight. Delayed because of a toilet problem.

Pros: Flying from San Francisco to Madrid via Munich in economy class. All very good in general, in fact the best experience compared with other airlines I have used in the past for the same trip. Vegetarian meal was good, but only on the long leg. Munich to Madrid was not possible to choose the special meal, but that is not that important for me, so I eat what I could and that was good enough. The crew was super nice. The plane is huge, toilets are literally 'downstairs' and extra room to hang out. I will definitely choose Lufthansa again for my trips to Europe.
Cons: If you want to reserve a seat in advance you need to pay for it, that's the only thing I didn't quite like because I found it after I bought the ticket. It was not mentioned clearly in advance, and it felt like an afterwards surprise, really? I paid for it anyways. For me it is worth it to make sure I get a window seat on the long leg flight.

Cons: I had to scramble on the last day to ensure I have an alternate flight via British Airways

Pros: flight attendants were polite and there were two meal services.
Cons: The flight was full and the seats were extremely close together with little room. When the person in front of me leaned back I had no room and it was hard to see the movie screen.

Pros: Food/drink choices and portions were very generous on our long haul flight . Efficient boarding. Lots of entertainment options as well.

Pros: I witnessed the flight crew defuse a conflict between two male passengers (that had escalated to shouting and throwing each others belongings out of overhead storage) before we left Frankfurt. A male steward showed he could be professionally stern when backing up a female coworker handling the situation and compassionate when he comforted an elderly woman in distress halfway through the intercontinental flight. The entire crew I interacted with in economy class were professional, friendly, welcoming, and helpful.
Cons: Boarding the entire plane at once was inefficient and caused conflicts over the availability of overhead storage. Obviously this is an airline decision and not a flight specific problem.

Pros: The price, the service, the food.
Cons: The sardine can.

Pros: Lit hands crew more caring and professional. All good.

Pros: Comfortable and clean. Staff was kind and helpful.
Cons: The food wasn't good. The pasta was soggy and the bread was hard and stale.

Pros: Loved the business class upgrade
Cons: Lack of food choices even in business class

Pros: First meal was great, second meal was just ok. Seats felt a little cramped for an international flight.
Cons: Boarding felt like a disorderly free-for-all with people making two competing lines that had to eventually merge. Designating a clear queue would probably not only speed things up, but would improve passenger happiness. You could literally draw a stripe on the floor for each entrance.

Pros: Please do it more easy for the costumers
Cons: The people who have baggage for check in can do it since the beginin the travel gol and back

Pros: The plane was very comfortable, and I had plenty of space, because I was sitting near to the exit door. The service and the crew were just great. I love traveling with Lufthansa.
Cons: n/a

Pros: Very smooth boarding on both flights, a smooth transfer between flights, and comfortable seats (especially nice flexible headrest on longhaul flight). Very friendly and helpful crew.
Cons: Movies available weren't to my taste, which isn't important anyway.

Cons: Seat spacing

Pros: The crew was so friendly

Cons: Nothing. The plane was clean, everything was on time, and everyone was polite and professional.

Pros: Food, in particular the vienna coffee choices were imprewsive.

Pros: Everything

Pros: Absolutely nothing. Despite booking business class flights 3 months before departure date because we had to attend a very important wedding. Swiss Airlines overbooked the flight but didn’t warn us in advance. This meant my husband was forced to pay over 8 thousand Euros to charter a small private je
Cons: So That we could attend the wedding early the next morning in Oldenburg. They then had the audacity to void our return flights. Luckily I spoke with a lovely lady at Lufthansa, explained the situation and she re-instated return flights for an admin fee. Will never ever use Swiss Airlines again.

Pros: Sits had more room then other plain

Pros: Quick boarding decent legroom
Cons: Breakfast was not great

Pros: From start to finish, Sevdije was in great hands. She had to be in a wheelchair, and there were three connecting flights in countries where she doesn't speak the language. It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!
Cons: Nothing!

Cons: Flight was late departing Cairo Changing flights from Cairo to Amsterdam was scheduled at 50 minutes. I asked the male flight attendant about changing airplanes, said our new gate was right next to our arriving gate. He said no problem. He failed to mention we had to go through customs and security again, and walk almost a Kilometer in the process. Fortunately they held the Amsterdam plane because many passengers would have missed it. I did not appreciate the lack of information from the flight attendant, however holding the plane was a godsend.

Pros: Excellent on all measures. I will definitely try to fly Austrian Air again!

Pros: The crew and the service was excellent. Dinner was excellent. The hot breakfast never came. We were served a roll and one small cup of coffee with no refills. That was my only complaint. On a long overseas flight I think a hot breakfast would have been better than a roll.

Pros: I liked that the airplane was newer and comfortable. The crew and food was ok.
Cons: There was no entertainment unless you paid for it. We already pay enough for our tickets to fly and entertainment should be included and not another added expense, especially for families that already pay so much for their flights!

Cons: I had a weelchair and nobody assist me in Viene in Austria

Cons: Can’t like it if you missed it!!

Pros: Service was great, the stewardess's were very professional and very caring without being too personal which is great for me .Every was done quickly and professionally with a great sense of efficiency and purpose .Hard to explain but so different from other airlines . Multimedia was phenomenal
Cons: Food portions were smallish but acceptable .Seat reservation service got totally mixed up ,reserved one seat and got another .Maybe software glitch ,needs to be fixed.

Pros: Flight schedule, boarding management
Cons: No WI-FI service during my return flight, limited options for tv news programs.

Cons: They lost my bag and refused to deliver it to my house once it was found. It is still at the airport

Pros: Love the 767 seating layout with 2-3-2 seating. My hubby and I got 2 by the window/aisle. I like having 2 aisles for walking around. Pasta meal was much more tasty than the chicken meal.
Cons: No free wi-fi. But, that wasn't a big deal. Just seemed unusual. If they did have it, they didn't let you know about it.

Pros: I watched three good movies during the flight to London. I enjoyed them.
Cons: Nothing particular.

Pros: Really impressed with the Austrian air staff representatives. Especially the folks at the ticket/checkin counter
Cons: That I did not fly this airlines before. They will be first on my list from now on.

Pros: Good service and on time.

Cons: My flight was Dec 11 at 8:00 from Budapest to Vienna. And from Viena I have to fly to Minsk. So on Dec 10 at 10:00 pm they send an e-mail to let me know that the flight from Budapest to Viena is canceled. I am glad that I decided to check my e-mail before I go to bad. So I try to call Austrian, but they work just from 8:00 am - 8:00 pm. I start to search all the info the site of Austrian, and find one phone number that seats be working 24 hours. So finally I got a person on the phone who was able to help me. ...

Pros: Organized orderly boarding. Food was snack only. Flight crew was pleasant and helpful.

Pros: I received an upgrade to a larger and more comfortable seat. The beverages were good and the staff was terrific.
Cons: The food quantity was skimpy considering the duration of the flight.

Pros: There was no in-flight entertainment system so I rejoiced to discover there was in-flight WiFi.
Cons: But Wifi did not offer much, just some summary descriptions on the destination. I'd be enchanted to get via WiFi the well-known in-flight map showing which leg of your flight was accomplished.

Cons: I can not afford first class tickets...

Pros: On time boarding in Vienna and lending in Chicago.
Cons: Not enough food for a long flight (only one poor meal was served during the entire flight).

Pros: Everything was nice and smooth. It was on time and the crew they were very nice and very good entertainment.

Pros: The plane was comfortable and clean. Internet was offered
Cons: The Internet didn't work. Although boarding was good the person making the announcements needs to know she should speak up.

Pros: Staff was nice.
Cons: flight was late.

Cons: Very confusing boarding procedures. In Vienna they would check you at the gate to make sure you are in but keep you standing for a long time. I am not sure what happened but food was barely edible: breakfast eggs were like rubber and Lunch was served with a tiny sandwich. For a 10 hour flight it was not even sufficient

Pros: The meal was ok The airplane was clean
Cons: Seats were very nerow .No help from the crew . Flight delayed

Cons: Nothing to dislike

Pros: Nice staff. efficient.

Pros: Plenty of leg room in economy. Will fly again.

Pros: Great crew, efficient boarding, on time
Cons: No entertainment, plane seemed a bit old as it made weird noises at certain altitudes

Pros: The service and the overall flight quality, the pilot was very good!

Cons: I did my fligh because I was in the hospital I have send a mail to kayak and to the agent I have booked the flight with No one got back to me yet!!!!!!!

Pros: Boarding was a breeze, although the flight was not full. Food was good, but as I dozed off during courses, they decided I was finished and took all my food and didn't offer anything when I awoke shortly after. (this will go in the 'didn't like' section as well. Bed was comfortable and comfy blanket and pillow
Cons: Crew was not friendly at all. Amenities kit was burlap sac with nothing worth keeping or using -- even the eye covers. Business class bathrooms had nothing to offer in the areas of hand/face creams. All there was were hand wipes and air freshener. (OMG! SERIOUSLY!?); a big difference from their partners (i.e. Swiss and Lufthansa). Crew was not present -- not only were they very unfriendly they were no where to be found. TV/video didn't work properly -- kept fast forwarding or changing channels on its own. The crew of course, was not concerned.

Pros: Free wifi on the return flight

Pros: Made it there safely.
Cons: Not much space in the seats on the flight especially for 10 straight hours.

Pros: Fast and short flight between Vienna and Warsaw. Not much good or bad.
Cons: Shuttle bus from the terminal took awhile to leave to the plane. No air conditioning to the shuttle. Very hot. Was uncomfortable.

Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing

Pros: Clean aircraft, very nice crew, nice airport (Vienna). Always enjoy the flights when I'm heading towards home....

Cons: They could not issue boarding pass for the all the segments of the travel. The agent had to talk to someone in order to even issue the boarding pass and even though the bags were checked in all the way to Pittsburgh boarding passes were not issued. I cannot blame the agent because Luftansa had issued the ticket for this Austrian Airline flight.

Cons: We paid in advance for Do & Co meals but the crew did not notice we had done so. We had to ask them to go find them, and by then there was not enough time left to heat them and eat them

Pros: The meal and drink service was quite good. The stewards/stewardesses were very attentive and kind.
Cons: There is not enough leg room. There is even less room if the person in front of one's seat has the seat reclined. The seats barely recline at all, so sleep is impossible. Sleep would be possible if there were enough room to rest one's head on the tray in front of the seat. This is impossible if the person in front of one's seat has reclined his or her seat. Thus, sleep is totally impossible on this aircraft. The sinks in the bathrooms also need to be deeper and need to drain more quickly.

Cons: Flight to Vienna cancelled. Driven to Munich instead. 6 hour wait until flight to Nice. Arrived 8 hours later than scheduled.

Pros: This Transavia Airlines is not good at all.
Cons: Many things cheaper does mean better.

Pros: Overall a nice and good flight
Cons: Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting...

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again

Cons: Everything was OK

Pros: Food was great, enjoyed watching videos, staff very profession and friendly.
Cons: Boarding was delayed and prolonged My Baggage was not transferred and was not available when I arrived in Dulles.

Cons: Flight got cancelled

Pros: Reclinable seats.
Cons: The food!! The lights could be dimmed as it was a night flight.

Pros: Friendly crew
Cons: Can’t think of anything

Cons: The flight was a bit delayed, but the airline handled it incredibly well. I was put up in a great hotel with good free food and caught another flight the next morning.

Pros: General flight journey

Pros: Seat was good
Cons: Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened

Pros: the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can
Cons: the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine

Cons: There was no wifi on flight

Cons: The plane was very hot

Pros: Seating is tight. The crew was great !
Cons: As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights.

Pros: very attentive crew
Cons: Only ham sandwiches on offer! I'm not demanding and would have been happy with cheese.

Pros: The crew was very nice
Cons: Uncomfortable seat but it’s only a 1 hour flight so not a big deal.

Pros: The crew were amazing and the flight was very smooth.
Cons: Keep up the good work

Pros: Crew's hospitality, good music, good destination material, terminal info, good system overall
Cons: Less legroom, storage space, bad food, few movie options.

Pros: Friendly and efficient crew. I travel KLM often and always enjoy the flights.
Cons: There were several flight delays and gates were changes a few times.

Pros: Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious
Cons: Seats ok, but could be more comfy

Pros: The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable.
Cons: Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy.

Pros: Nothing to mention
Cons: Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!

Pros: Comfortable and well laid out seat area
Cons: Food was a little substandard for business class

Pros: I slept pretty much the whole time

Pros: More than adequate room, And very good service from a very professional staff. Head and shoulders abovevany American carrier, and several European lines I have flown.
Cons: Can't think of anything.

Pros: Nice crew; clean plane; decent dinner
Cons: No entertainment system; insufficient knee space

Pros: expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy
Cons: there was no lounge close to our departure gate

Pros: The crew were hardworking, responsive, conscientious and friendly
Cons: Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late.

Cons: Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours

Pros: Bording was good and general flight ok
Cons: This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth.

Pros: Very friendly service!

Pros: Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all...
Cons: Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online.

Pros: Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight.

Pros: Service impeccable!
Cons: They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy.

Cons: Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again.

Pros: The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination.

Pros: Crew service
Cons: Flight delayed.

Pros: Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault).
Cons: No complaints at all.

Pros: The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful.
Cons: The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be.

Pros: Speed, crew, and reliablity.
Cons: Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though.

Pros: I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane
Cons: See above

Pros: Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping
Cons: Kosher food could be improved

Pros: Loads of leg room
Cons: Loved everything

Pros: Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago.
Cons: The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish

Pros: Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost.
Cons: No complaints.

Pros: For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies.
Cons: Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums

Pros: It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience.
Cons: Quite bummed that the flight didn't have wifi / USB):

Pros: leg room economy compared to KLM
Cons: full flight, no upgrade possible
