Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I was very pleased at the flight crew, the food and entertainment. We had a really fast connection in Zurich and our luggage made the connection, which was a big relief."
Pros: "Excellent service all around and great flight timing with delays and awaiting for transfer flights to land"
Cons: "I travel a least 5 times a year and Kayak is always my option."
Pros: "SwilssAir is our new favorite airline to Switzerland and other points in Europe. The crews were pleasant and efficient. All flights were right on time. The food was very good, and the best overall we have experienced in economy. The individual video screens provided a nice selection of movies, tv, games, etc. Finally, transferring in Zurich is MUCH better than the zoo that his Heathrow!"
Cons: "Boarding took way too long. Plane left almost 30 minutes after scheduled time."
Pros: "I had a wonderful experience the whole way through."
Cons: "The TV froze and stopped working for me. Thankfully it was the last thirty minutes of my flight. Mine was the only that appeared to be broken."
Pros: "Crew was great. This flight is what I would expect from Swiss."
Pros: "Smiley all the time flight attendants and generous with food and drink and responded quickly if need help. The person who performed the flight announcement from swiss to lax had nice sense of humor while announcement :)"
Cons: "Warm and excellent customer service :)"
Cons: "Despite its reputation, Swiss is always late. Their Sunday evening flights always from Stockholm always depart 20-45m late."
Pros: "Good space above seats"
Cons: "Seats way too tight. But the worst thing was the two passageners in the row we shared. They were laying on each other and it was inappropriate for the entire flight. He was rubbing her breast and I said something. He seemed to stop. Lots of rubbing and huggin and the man had his legs stretched out man spread style"
Pros: "I thought Swiss did a nice job. The people were kind and the service was excellent. The meals were great. I never wanted for anything. The entertainment was also very nice."
Pros: "The staff was excellent and friendly"
Cons: "I didn't enjoy the food"
Pros: "I love the fact that there are no communication barrier...everyone that I spoke to knows English!"
Pros: "When we landed"
Cons: "Everything else..."
Pros: "Staff was very courteous; they fed us well"
Pros: "Nice, clean and modern airplane with great service"
Pros: "I had a super-short connection from Stockholm at Zurich (going to JFK), and I just assumed I'd have to be rebooted, but they held the plane for all of us! Entertainment was excellent, service was great - I really like the food, although I don't eat well on flights. Comfortable - I slept for a few hours. Really great experience (until I hit customs in JFK, but SwissAir has no influence on that :) )"
Pros: "From my previous flight, the crew informed the flight attendants to LA about my condition. This crew checked in with me every few hours to make sure I was comfortable and had enough tissues and tea to make it through the 12 hours."
Pros: "The crew on board was kind and polite when they had to deliver bad news"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to a morning delay at Barcelona, although that seemed odd. The delay was known early that morning. Flight from Barcelona to Zurich doesn't take long. Seems they could have rerouted, or at least sent an email or some notification. Also, the boarding staff at Zurich is rude and random about whom they let onboard with larger luggage or not. They held some people but not others. Middle seats have metal polls, making legroom awkward."
Pros: "A swiss machine..."
Cons: "the smell someone left in the bathroom before me."
Cons: "I would have like an announcement to let me know what times food will be served. I woke up just as the crew had passed my row for breakfast and then couldn't get the attention of the lady to serve me breakfast. A vegan option for the menu would be excellent. The leg room on the plane was also very reduced for an 11 hour flight. I wish I would have been offered to pay an additional amount and upgrade to the business class. This option was never offered to me at check-in."
Pros: "Getting off the plane after 11 hours of turturous discomfort."
Cons: "I am not unusually large but it is clear that the seats on your planes are completely inadequate for anyone other than a child. There is no possible way for anyone who isn't seriously sedated to sleep or even sit for any extended period of time in what amount to slightly cushioned coffins. I literally spent an hour in the toilet trying to fall asleep because at least in there I had room to extend my legs. At least in there I could actually breathe (the ventilation system is totally inadequate for anyone sitting near the windows and results in horribly stuffy and uncomfortable air.)"
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: "Like to have the gluten free option for food. I know i chose it when i got the ticket but i did not get it."
Pros: "The flight attendants were perfect and very professional. I had a toothache on both flights back and forth. And on both flights, the crew members were always keeping an eye on me. Thanks so much. And also the pilots did an amazing job on making the flight as smooth as possible, love the 777! Thank you Swiss. I'm flying again to Athens this summer, I'm going with Swiss :)"

Pros: "most things were good"
Cons: "the passport check process in Zurich was awful!"
Pros: "Good people."
Cons: "Bad food."
Cons: "Didn't have good selection of drink. Very tight seats never came by to pick up or ask if needed anything. Only saw them went serving dinner. I will never fly swiss air again."
Pros: "All the meal and snacks were excellent! The crew was friendly."
Cons: "It was too warm during flight, not enough air flow. The lights are too bright and spread light to passengers during "sleep" time. The remote controls for the TV's need to be cleaned. Passengers need to be reminded to not open windows during "sleep" times"
Pros: "Great food and drink service."
Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated relative to other airlines. A bit disappointing."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I got to Los Angeles safely"
Cons: "The bathrooms were tiny, seemed to be in a bad shape and one of them was straight disgusting. The cabin was crowded and there was not much room to stretch. There seemed to be something wrong with the main dish (special order) and I started to feel ill soon after eating from it. It took a few days to get better. The headset didn't work for most of the trip, even after several attempts by the flight attendant to re-set it."
Pros: "Kind flight attendants who were attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Seats are hard and very small. No chargers and having the remote control cut into the armrest was uncomfortable and awkward. I kept accidentally hitting the stewardess button with my elbow when I would try to use said armrest."
Cons: "The fact that Swiss air didn't put me on a stand bye flight after I missed my Barcelona to Zurich flight because I was at the wrong gate was no professional of Swiss airlines! They gave me no help at the airport and I was forced to pay $1,200 for a new flight home."
Pros: "I arrived safe."
Cons: "The plane was old. The space was very cramped and the entertainment didn't work. There was no wifi."
Pros: "The seats were really comfortable! The staff was amazing. They were very friendly and kind. The seats reclined really nicely."
Cons: "I would have liked more movie choices but it wasn't too bad of a selection."
Cons: "Old entertainment system didn't work"

Cons: "More cushion"
Cons: "Yes amazing"
Pros: "Turkish is always good Didn't know kayak was associated with justfly Loved the kayak notifications. MADEAHUGE difference"
Pros: "The crew handled 2 incidents exceedingly diplomatically with an impossible man seated next to me. The incidents had nothing to do with me. At the beginning of the flight he was refusing to close 4 window shades that were bothering someone on the other side of the plane, and at the end of the flight he refused to return his headsets as we were landing. The crew were amazingly polite with him. He was completely out of line."
Cons: "My bag did not make the connection in Istanbul due to late arrival from Nairobi."
Cons: "Crowd highly liked company deserves crowd"
Pros: "I really liked the selection of food, beverages, and movies"
Cons: "Economy is SO cramped for such a long flight."
Cons: "Flights were delayed for 24 hours!!!! Do not take this airlines. Inside the airport they can't even speak English. They are rude and raciest. No wheelchair were provided for the old people."
Pros: "The transfer gates are always further away and there is no staff at the gates to help you. It's always a mad dash to catch your connecting flight. Turkish airport should consider transferring passengers with close connections through a faster line. Also, the security screening between flights doesn't offer any priority for passengers with tight connections"
Pros: "Combo deal....It might not sound funny to many but my 21 hour lay over gave me an opportunity to visit instabul and that was great."
Cons: "THE bathroom esp at the back of the plan read very dirty. Went floors a d trash that was overflowing."
Cons: "Extra extra and private security passing from Istanbul airport"
Pros: "All was perfect"
Pros: "I'm happy and will continue to fly Turkish."
Pros: "I,d all the service and the food the drink"
Cons: "The crews are very helpfull an Cain yes I will recommend Turkish airline thank you to make my trip so placent"
Cons: "our luggages were left in instanbul so when we arrived in kenya we waited for long before being told our bags were left in instanbul,were had to come next day to collect,stressful experience because we were staying like 80 miles away"
Pros: "When I missed my flight from Belgrade to Istanbul due to plane being late 45 min.and I missed my flight to LA, they gave me a free accommodation and meals."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that nobody told me that Ataturk Airport in Istanbul is so big that you can not make to connect flight on time for an hour.Especially if you flight has been late to depart like mine from Belgrade due to the rain. I thought I will make it to the connect flight to LA but the gate was already closed. I was instructed to do multiple errands, to get Turkish visa, etc all on my expense to be able to exit the transit as an American citizen and be able to take Turkish airlines bus to the hotel.The hotel was fine and the meals. The problem was that they calculate bus traveling time wrong in the hotel and put people on the bus next day too late, so due to the traffic jam, we barely made it to the airport, and then we had to stress the officials to put us on the fast passport control lane due to boarding time."
Cons: "Very hot inside the plane"
Pros: "friendly service, excellent crew, comfortable seats Actually it was my daughter recommendation to fly Turkish Airlines as she flies it almost exclusively We love Turkish Airlines As for Istanbul airport, I had an excellent experience while transiting. Well equipped, clean, nice restaurants and food Good experience overall I loved my flight"
Cons: "turbulence throughout but this is beyond your control I know, we just had nasty weather not on our way from Los Angeles to Istanbul though"
Pros: "It was great. I told everyone about it."
Cons: "Boarding in Turkey was a bit unorganized. Bathrooms on board could be better and the crew should come pick up the food trays soon after."
Pros: "Entertainment is good, many movies and games for kids."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and food was terrible! No menu and no selection to choose."
Cons: "You had a very disrespectful, illogical, anal retentive person at the ticket gate just before getting on the shuttle. She would not allow us to wait for the rest of our party of 2 to go on the shuttle to the plane together. They were delayed because of your personal continually bringing other people to cut in line in front of them. There was plenty of time and the shuttle was already full, and we wanted to wait for the next shuttle to board the airplane together. She came out several times from inside of the building shouting at the three of us to get on the shuttle even when the person managing the shuttle flow at the bottom of the stairs was about to let us wait for the next shuttle. What was her problem(?) - she could use a lot more people skills and realize who pays her salary - the customers. She really tarnished the whole image and impression I originally had of TA. Also, there was no way to go to the bathroom without going through a long line of security again at the last gate before the shuttle which did not make sense."
Pros: "The flight was great and the service was wonderful. The plane was new and clean. A huge plus was the video entertainment in every seat along with headphones and USB Charging Port. They poured me a double Glenlivet scotch on the rocks at NO CHARGE!"
Cons: "I booked three round-trip tickets from LAX to Athens. Our daughter did not fly with us there but we checked with ticketing in LAX and they booked her seat anyway. The issue came when we tried to leave Athens the airlines then said that I had to purchase a one-way ticket! They informed me that the flight was cancelled for my daughter because she didn't fly to Athens. The ticket was almost $1,500.00 and I intend to get my money back but it was unfortunate that they had to charge me for it in the first place."
Cons: "I was surprised that my laptop was taken from me without giving any explanation, I think the customer have to be informed about it."
Pros: "The food was pretty good"
Cons: "The seats were too close so you could hardly move when the seat in front reclined. They didn't clean the bathroom during an entire 13 hour flight and it needed it."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "The food service was really bad. Not happy with the meal choice."
Cons: "My luggage just disappeared on my second leg to Istanbul. 2 email notifications that luggage was not found. Wrong contact phone number at initial report and was not addressed despite report and upload. Also a representative emailed that luggage was erroneously recorded as "delivered" which is not true. I still don't have my luggage after 14 days. No further responses despite extensive documentation and receipts. This is bad!!!"
Pros: "1) The vegan meals were outstanding. 2) The free movies helped a lot! 3) The Cherry Juice is Sooooo good!"
Cons: "I asked to be move from 13D (isle) to 23G (isle) They stuck me in 23E (middle) and insisted it was a middle."
Pros: "Every thing was ok"
Pros: "Good entertainment, food was satisfactory (as much as can be expected in economy class)."
Cons: "Boarding was significantly delayed (because of the laptop ban search). Seats were more narrow than usual economy. Service was very slow since they only used one attendant per cart (instead of one in the front and one in the back)."
Cons: "boarding the treat you like animals"
Cons: "The flight from Los angeles was 3 hours late when I got to Instanbul Turkey was nobody there to help us I lost my flight and they lie to us about available flights I ask them to speak to a supervisor they told me the only Supervisor was outside the airport they wanted me to pay $30 for a visa and go through customs was the first time I flew Turkish airways and will be the last one"
Pros: "Everything was good except the airplane.. i was on row 13 and the cabinet was warm and air-condition was not working fine.. i reported this ti the flight attendant. She confirmed the temp was set to 23 C however it was definitely not less that 26C .. also it took long time to serve the hot meal although we were on rhe plane and the flight depart8 got delayed for 90 minutes due to technical problem. On the other hand, seat were comfortable and flight attendants were so nice and friendly.. also Turkish lounge and airport were good"
Pros: "Quality experience all the way around"
Cons: "Had to cancel due tp safety situation in Turkey (bombings, Dept of State warning). I had flight insurance but Kayak did not refund a dime."

Pros: "Food; power outlet."
Pros: "Appreciate highten security checks giving "secured" feelings to passengers."
Cons: "Asian vegetarian meal was not as good for inbound flight as it was for outbound flight."
Pros: "Good Food, Comfortable Seats & Good Entertainment Options"
Pros: "As before, as far as airline food goes, Turkish has above average meals."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by two hours and there was no representative from Turkish airlines there to answer questions. Again for someone 6'2", this plane had seats a little smaller than usual. On the way out, my knees never hit the seat ahead of me, this time they were constantly up against the back of other seat. Also this flights entertainment controls were terrible, constantly went back to home page while trying to select movie."
Pros: "they are good thank you very mush"
Pros: "that we got to check in 2 bags"
Cons: "-lost one of my bags"
Pros: "Very bad experience i have to think twice before I book airfare now !!"
Cons: "They need to have emergency back up plans for the passengers who is stuck in the airport it must be international law!"
Cons: "I was charged $65.00 for checked luggage; my layover was only 50 minuets and had to rush...last person to board."
Pros: "Great airline! Would love to fly with them again! :) Polite and friendly staff which is a standard that has slipped with many airlines in recent years! Good tasting wine for airline wine. Frankfurt airport need a shuttle of service for transferring passengers. Keep it up Lufthansa :)"
Cons: "Delay for both leg trip."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The infotainment system could have been better. My system was not working for the first 3 hours and the sound went out after 2 hours of use. Also my blanket was not clean."
Pros: "The crew is amazing, special food needs is covered and delicious, great service after all."
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly, the lack of customer service is evident."
Cons: "(1) The captain collected headsets 30 minutes before landing, causing us to miss the last 15 minutes of a movie. Why? (2) Very long cues for toilet use. (3) The baggage took more than half hour to arrive. (4) The chair in front of me reclined very far (more than those on its sides), making it very hard to eat, get up, or read. Need better maintenance."
Pros: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight crew was extra nice, even accommodating requests that gave them extra-work. Economy passengers were treated like first class in terms of service and solicitude of the crew. Headphones, blankets, pillows were offered free of charge, so we’re the food and drinks, and there was a good selection of movies and music. On a 770$ ticket, mind you! The crew will come by repeatedly to check if passengers desired some more wine or coffee, offered water and juices on a tray several times outside the regular service times, and cared for the families with children. Thumbs up!"
Cons: "The warm food was a bit unappetizing, the potatoes for instance were black, but there is nothing that the crew could do better than offer to replace it. Such graceful approach to a little inconvenience!"
Pros: "My previous flights with Lufthansa have been in business class, which is fabulous. However, on this occasion flew economy because I got an exceptionally cheap ticket. I was pleasantly surprised. Obviously the seat was narrower, but had plenty of legroom. The food in economy in Lufthansa is better than most airlines’ business class meals. The crew is very courteous and professional. You really can’t go wrong with this airline."
Cons: "There was no downside."
Cons: "The service"
Pros: "Safe trip. Announcer had a radio voice."
Cons: "Food was horrible. Service was scarce. Bathrooms were not the cleanest. Snacks were scarce and not appropriate. The tv screens were not too user friendly and programs would skip while showings."
Cons: "Miss the flight due to too short of transfer time. As a professional you guys should know better to have such tight transfer time. I want credit for my major inconvenience"
Cons: "Their computer terminals were down on the boarding area. Actually about 5 Boarding areas were down no one was available to give direction or answer questions until you got To the front of the line and many had to be sent then to a different line. Bad enough the terminals were down but not even close to German efficiency in handling the problem. Also several of the stewards were rather surly and short"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Pilots at Lufthansa are the best regarding landing and taking off. I like also a lot that lufthansa flies mostly with Boeing airplanes."
Cons: "Lufthansa has a horrible website. I wanted to check in online but I had to no reservation or ticket number is provided so I had to go to my old reservations to find it. .Next I wanted to pay for my luggage online but there was no link given. It says you can do it cheaper on Lufthansa.com but I could not find where you can actually do that. All in all spend 30 minutes with no result. Had to pay at check in $44 instead of $27. And it was just one of many other problems and inconveniences with their website."
Pros: "It is so nice to flight on board a plane were the staff knows what to do."
Pros: "I managed to get a seat in economy class upstairs on the Airbus A380-800, next to the window. Each window seat has a locker to stow all your in-flight stuff in and there is lots of legroom. I was impressed - that's saying a lot for a Boeing-lover. Crew was very attentive and always available."
Cons: "Boarding could have been better organized."
Cons: "First, Lufthansa lost our baggage from Hamburg to Los Angeles. Then, the delivery company (Direct Courier Services) Lufthansa uses was completely inept and unprofessional - every single one of their employees is a complete moron. We didn't end up getting our baggage for two and half days so we were wearing the same clothes that we left Germany with. Then, after being told by Lufthansa customer service to submit receipts for clothes we had to buy, never got reimbursed or even the courtesy of a reply. After flying Lufthansa for over a decade, will never use this airline again. Epic fail."
Pros: "Exelent crew"
Cons: "Distance too far between gates for transfer"
Pros: "As usual, good customer service."
Cons: "I fail to see why Lufthansa is deliberately destroying their competitive advantage."
Cons: "The flight attendant did not bring the wheel chair and take me to the bus where I waited too long and when I arrived to customs no wheel chair was there and I asked every officer there how to get the wheel chair no one helped after long time one officer called and the chair arrived and he transferred me to a cart the driver was very bad he did not help in seating me and I sit on the back with my carry on when he drives like crazy I fell on the floor screeming he stopped and place me in the front and he asked if I need a doctor I told him no I just need to catch my flight although I was hurt badly with a very big bruise and when I reach the gate the plane was gone and I have to wait for another flight to take me to San Francisco and from there to Los Angeles and I singed a paper that I don't want a doctor"

Pros: "The downstairs lavatories are genius!"
Cons: "I could not get any information in Moscow until arriving at the airport."
Cons: "1 hour between flights meant a very hectic transfer."
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Full plane"
Pros: "The flight Crew was very attentive and went the extra mile to keep us happy during our flight, the head stewardess I give her a 10+. we will fly with Lufthansa again. great movies!"
Cons: "The flight from Roma to Frankfurt was late and we had to run what seemed like two miles to be able to catch our connecting flight to Los Angeles."
Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Pasta was so so."
Cons: "flight was late; food was not so great, lunch and dinner were the same; :-("
Cons: "At time confusion amongst the crew- received wilted salad- seemed the last rows had to take what was left over"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The food, the crew, the cleanness and the entertainment"
Pros: "NOT MUCH. LEFT, GOT THERE ON TIME. SMOOTH FLIGHT."
Cons: "SEATED, TREATED LIKE CATTLE. VERY UNCOMFORTABLE DUE TO NARROW SEATS. GAVE US TWO MIDDLE SEATS IN FOUR-SEAT CENTER. WANTED $35/EA TO PRESELECT SEATS, ONE-WAY. NEVER AGAIN IF I CAN HELP IT....."

Cons: "Cabin was too warm. No air vents in new aircraft so difficult to sleep."
Pros: "short hop--good"
Cons: "Food was not good. Seat leg room very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Everything worked like an expensive Swiss watch! Employees were polite, friendly, and very helpful! I will fly with Lufthansa again and again!!!"
Pros: "Being seated in econmony plus. Everything behind the scenes that i didn't see that made this flight safe. Very thankful. Didn't matter that not enough coffee was onboard for breakfast."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly pleasant and helpful"

Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight."

Cons: "Seats a bit hard"
Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
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: "Amazing services .. on time just exactly .. I feel really happy onboard KLM ❤️"

Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"
Pros: "Time and Good clean place.. in This case airpöane.."
Cons: "It was not entreteiment st all"
Pros: "Everything was clean and well organized."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."
Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed a little due to weather as was takeoff. Cant blame them for weather but the connection was very tight."
Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
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!"

Cons: "I ordered vegan meals and only one of the meals were vegan. Someone had forgotten to bring the second meal for me on the plane."

Cons: "The food especially the second meal or snack."
Pros: "Fast and efficient!"
Pros: "SAS does it right with entertainment and food."
Pros: "The crew were fine and the boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The TVs were really old - my husband’s broke and mine couldn’t actually play movies due to it not registering fingerprints. The pocket in front of me was also ripped open spilling those annoying in flights magazines and the airplane smelled like the lavatory which was 6 rows up... just broken down and not well maintained. It was only a 9.5 hour flight but I expected better from SAS."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Crew and food were amazing!"
Pros: "Crew was great, seats in economy plus were comfortable. Arrival was 15 minutes early to Los Angeles."
Cons: "Check in took a long time at Stockholm. Waiting area to board was very small and crowded."
Pros: "Great flight on SAS"
Cons: "Very good food and outstanding choice of movies as entertainment."
Pros: "flight arrived on time"
Cons: "The food was poor, ventilation system in the cabin terrible. Smell from bathrooms during the whole flight, both ways. SAS lost our luggage and nobody seams to care about it. They know that there is a problem with luggage transfer on connecting flight, but don't bother to do anything about it. Customer service representative is not able to provide any information, doesn't even understand English well. Nobody answers the phone... At this point, we're still waiting for our bags"
Pros: "People were very kind. The food was terrific!"
Cons: "The entertainment system was slow."
Cons: "my ONLY complaint is that I preordered a VEGETARIAN meal and got a VEGAN meal. NOT a big deal, but they should be aware of the difference."
Pros: "The food and entertainment on board is great. I was very pleased with how they organized the checking of bags and the fact I picked it up at my final destination without any issues and right on time."
Cons: "Some of the staff at the check in desks can be very rude. Also, on my initial flight, they closed the check-in early and left many of us stranded without knowing who to talk to and how to manage to get on the plane. When someone from SAS finally came, I was told I would be escorted through security and most into the plane but then the "manager" or whoever was in charge denied it. The plane did not leave for another our and instead of arguing with the costumers they could have just helped us get on the plane. It was unfair of them to close the check in desks early and on top of that to catch a plane the next day they wanted to charge and exorbitant fee. I Wii never fly SAS again."
Pros: "Nice interior and good IFE on long haul."
Cons: "I did not like the flight from Malaga to Stockholm due to not having IFE or WiFi on a 4+ hour flight. Absolutely unacceptable in today’s travel market."
Pros: "Great crew, on schedule."
Cons: "SAS is packing in 200 passengers in their Airbus 321, so no space and seat comfort like 0. Also make sure you have paid for bags, Kayak will sell you tickets that don't include bags.so double check your reservation. If you are stuck with a ticket that doesn't include bags, call SAS an add bags $35 per bag. Do this at least 24 hours before departure.SAS is the only one that can add the bags, kayak is unable to add bags after purchase."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Super hot throughout flight. Had a 9 hour layover and the flight arrived after the gates closed so the only options for 12am-5am were wooden benches in random sketchy areas. Had to wait in line to wait to get in line to finally board the plane The food was two rolls ups three hours apart"
Cons: "Lost baggage, while arrived and departure in neighbor gates in Copenhagen. After 2 days still no baggage"
Pros: "They did what they could..."
Cons: "Delay change of tire. Missed next flight Frankfurt- Dallas."
Pros: "Nice planes with all the basics you need"
Cons: "Terrible food"
Pros: "Liked 2+4+2 seating"
Cons: "When passengers in front of us kept their seats reclined the entire trip, couldn't move, difficult to get in or out of seats. Had to ask flight attendants to ask them to raise seats, at least during meal service. Food was worst of any international flight we've been on and we fly internationally several times a year. Very poor selection of movies and map was not working this flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and attentive crew!"
Cons: "Old movies not up to date."
Pros: "SAS plane, customer service and meals."
Cons: "Crew was rude. The bathrooms became disgusting halfway thru the foight w no toilet paper. For 6 hours we were down to one bathroom in coach. Unacceptable. My daughter never got her final meal and the flight attendant was rude when I asked her about it and never returned w food. Never fly SAS"
Pros: "Waited for us when flight showed up late"
Cons: "Cramped cabin"
Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "To be boarded and wait for more than 45 minutes inside the plane for a second pilot."
Pros: "Friendly service, good movies. Easy flight, arrived early."
Cons: "Being served two versions of a ham and cheese wrap in a row. Variety would have been nice."
Pros: "The boarding was more organized than our other flights with this airline. Cabin crew was friendly."
Cons: "The food was not so good. It looked like they were really trying to cut corners with very small portions."
Pros: "Courteous staff, great food, CLEAN airplane, spacious seats. Zero complaints and WAY better than any domestic airlines (United, Delta, American) based on personal experience!"
Cons: "In toilets there was no paper"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice selection of movies. The best price at that time."
Cons: "Crew attitude was not pleasant: no smile, no "you're welcome", as they were robots. Food was terrible."
Cons: "There wasn't free food but free coffee."
Pros: "The crew and the flight and the booking etc. is all very good and easy. I greatly trust and enjoy SAS"
Cons: "The crew and the flight and the booking etc. is all very good and easy. I greatly trust and enjoy SAS The one hour wait in line directly to get in at the gate is a bit odd, to board the plane. For me the seats are about 2 inches short and legroom and I just don't have space for my legs"
Cons: "I was charged 500 DKK (about $80) to check a single suitcase. I was assuming an allowance of one bag on an international flight - I guess I should have read the fine print. What was most annoying though is the fact that the bag didn't even make it to destination (on a direct flight, this is hard to accept)."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, food was amazing. SAS plus is the way to go. Bigger seats, very comfortable for a ten hour flight."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Would have liked more options for Movies."
Pros: "The crew was knowledgeable, gracious and helpful for the entire flight. I enjoyed the mapping and camera feature of the plane. The selection of options for entertainment was a delight."
Cons: "How do you say to close for comfort but then one gets what one pays for and the economics are understandable yet I did not care for the cramped space provided."
Cons: "Unfriendly and rude desk help. Rude and insulting. United was a real disappointment. I will ask my travel agent to be in touch re screw up the economy plus seats. I had to pay extra for what our itinerant said had been booked. Mary, at the desk at C12 in Delles, she wouldn't give me her last name was unbelievably insulting and unhelpful."
Pros: "A bottle of water along with the standard pillow and blanket at each seat. Never had a long line for the bathroom (dumb luck?)"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "The flight is very noise they never turn off the lights and close the windows so it's very hard to try to sleep."
Cons: "sas online system needs to be overhauled and user friendly. one sas phone agent not helpful, called back and the agent was very helpful"
Pros: "The plane was new, great seats and staff"
Cons: "Delayed flights, microphone is too fuzzy, hard to understand. Also why couldn't we get 2 or more sodas.. Crazy! The Asian airlines beat you! Very expensive stuff like a small red bottle of wine was like almost $15! Nuts... Very disappointed.. It should be free for the money we pay! Also staff just let people leave their windows open which was crazy coz most passengers are tired from other trips and of course in Europe you can hardly see anyone letting the elderly and children have any first priority boarding or let alone line up. I had my disabled husband and a young active little grandchild... Cathay Pacific, PAL,KAL, CAL are great about priority boarding for the elderly and children. Its sad your company do not have compassion or empathy for families with little children and the elderly population.. They really suffer!"
Pros: "I wish there were more snacks during flight."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the flight left and landed on time. The crew members were very pleasant. The comfort of the aircraft is mediocre, but that is all across the industry."
Cons: "This flight was ~3.5 hours and there was no 'free' food; it was all for purchase. SAS can learn from their competitors and realize that flights over 2 hours are different than short haul ones."
Cons: "We were to fly from Bergen to Oslo, and then from Oslo to Stockholm. However, the flight from Bergen to Oslo kept getting delayed, so we were eventually put on a direct flight to Stockholm from Bergen. But for the 5 hour delay, we were given a food 'dinner' coupon that could have only bought a slice a pizza which we felt was extremely poor. Expected a better compensation for the long delay."
Cons: "Business class ticket and traveled just like economy. Never advised when booking no business class. Boarding was like a stampede."
Pros: "Lots of movie to chose from. Chicken Curry was tasty."
Cons: "The person in front of me put the seat back so far that I had almost no room to get up—then glared at me when I had to pull on the seat back to get out."
Pros: "I am angry about the inability to contact a SAS person."
Cons: "You think I should of gotten frustrated on my vacation!!!"
