Cons: "Entertainment didn’t work, the crew did nothing to help. The plane was hot and stuffy. My luggage is lost."
Pros: "The crew service was very good, as was the food. The only complain is about the entertainment, hope to update the touch screen."
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew and prices were good."
Cons: "The seats seem to have gotten smaller and were rather uncomfortable for a 7 hour flight."
Cons: "Children children children....."
Cons: "Screens need update, mis functions on equipment"
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seat."
Pros: "Seats very comfortable; real feather pillow! Everything was on time."
Cons: "Breakfast consisted only of sweet items -- I didn't touch it."
Cons: "I asked the Chinese flight attendant in economy to please ask the man in front of me to put his seat up since the captain and purser had already asked us to do so in three languages The man in front of me refused to do so. She said she was going to start at the front of the plane and let him leave his seat back making it difficult to see my tv monitor. I thought that she should’ve said that it was time to put your seat up. It was frustrating that she didn’t support me and the request of the captain. Your seats are very uncomfortable upright when the person in front of you has their seat back."
Pros: "On time; smooth boarding process; lights dimmed for a reasonably long time."
Cons: "NO legroom on the Zurich to Dusseldorf flight."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Boston -Zurich, the most uncomfortable seat possible. I am 5’2 and I barely fit.... Seats are way more comfortable on European flights."
Cons: "The temperature on this overnight flight was sweltering Legroom was poor"
Pros: "We were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was! An added bonus was the chocolate they gave us. Crew was professional and courteous."
Pros: "There were good entertainment options though I didn’t use them"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2.5 hours, during which we had boarded but were told we could not leave our seats even for the bathroom. We were offered a cup of water once during this delay which is inexcusable. (We were also woken up to serve dinner at 1am so that was incredibly inconvenient for an overnight flight) On top of that, I, as well as many others missed our connecting flight. Personally I missed my connection by 20 minutes, which seems a reasonable amount of time to hold a connecting flight with so many people from our flight on that next one. In missing by only 20 minutes, we have lost an entire day of our trip and are spending 9! hours in the airport today. There was no communication between flights clearly. Despite there being an earlier flight we could’ve been placed on after missing our connection - we did not get booked on this flight. I asked why and they just randomly placed people on random flights with no regard for when we showed at the desk. In this scenario, a first come first serve would have alleviated an absolutely awful experience. I will never fly Swiss Air again and will urge people I know to not fly this airline. The experience was extremely frustrating, the best response from an employee was “that’s all I can do for you” and I wish it on no one."
Pros: "Took care of every need with a smile and class"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and helpful."
Cons: "We were glad to have extra leg room at the bulk head, however, the seats themselves were extremely narrow. My elderly father found it exceptionally difficult to sit and stand from the seat. The seat table creates an ever tighter fit for someone with special needs."
Pros: "The planes are clean and relatively comfortable."
Cons: "Extremely rigid rules. My flight was the day of the blizzard in Boston, Tues, 3/13. Despite 5 calls to Swiss to reroute me out of Montreal, an airport I could actually get to, they would not relent. I finally just drove there and a really nice agent changed my flight since Logan was closed and all public transport was shut down. Even if my scheduled flight from boston wasn't canceled (I have no idea) they were incredibly unhelpful about the fact that I physically could not get to logan in time for my flight. (Mass DOT was asking everyone to stay off ALL roads). THEN on the way home, they would NOT let me fly back to Montreal where my car was!! WAY TOO RIGID RULES. Screw the customer!"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Seats comfortable. Slept most of flight."
Cons: "Didn’t bother me because sleeping but much of flight apparently the entertainment system had issues"
Pros: "I thought the attendants were nice and that it was an easy, relaxing flight."
Pros: "On time; everyone friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The attention to Detail during the entire flight. Sure beats the US flights!"
Cons: "Staff not very friendly. Very small seat. Worn out plane."
Pros: "Kindness, courtesy and smiles"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Pros: "Flight attendants helpful, efficient, food was good. Leg room more than adequate."
Pros: "Just another flight, nothing special."
Pros: "On time departure. Nice crew Meals were fine for airline food. Would take again."
Cons: "Tight connection on Zurich."
Pros: "Swiss chocolate is always welcome!"
Cons: "The food in economy class was one of the worst i have ever got in a flight. The chicken was not cooked completely. One of the side dishes was impossible to identify, perhaps past mixed with bread crumbs, only breadcrumbs, who knows? Ver disappointing for swiss. You were doing so much better in the past..."
Pros: "The woman who checked in my baggage was very helpful and patient. I had to re-arrange some weight and she assisted me in maximizing weight and minimizing cost. The flight attendants we very kind in trying to assist me in finding appropriate food. The flight was very comfortable and the flight attendants were wonderful all-around."
Cons: "Boarding of the flight was delayed which impacted our arrival time in Zurich. I had a connecting flight- but so did at least 10 other Swiss flights at that time. The queues for customs were incredibly long and the only reason I made my flight was because I ran through the airport. I also had a challenging time with food. I am celiac and often cannot eat the standard fare on planes. I called in advance of my flight to notify someone of my allergy - and they told me the only way I could ensure such a meal was by purchasing a meal that cost $30. I was not willing to pay such a hefty surcharge for food because I had already payed a bit extra than budgeted because my partner had recommended the excellent service of Swiss. I have traveled on several airlines for intercontinental flights between Boston and Europe - and have always had my allergy accommodated at no extra cost. Once on the flight - I was offered an orange and banana for dinner and a small yoghurt for breakfast. I will be flying Swiss again in December and I sincerely hope they will be better equipped to provide for my dietary requirements."
Pros: "Quiet, staff do not bother you. Seats are big enough to rest."
Cons: "Boarding and sitting takes a bit of time."
Cons: "I liked everything except the airplane itself, which I hated. I was fortunate enough to get an exit row on my long flight going over; I did not get lucky on my way home. The flights between Zurich and Brindisi were more comfortable than the long haul flights. The long haul flights are abominable and should be outlawed by governments as they are currently configured. The boy next to me literally could not fit his legs/thigh bones in the space provided by his seat. I did okay as I am not tall, until the woman in front of me decided to lean back. It is not her fault, however, though I thought nasty things about her and periodically tried to dig my knees into her back to get her to lift up her seat. The fault belongs entirely to Swiss Air, which chooses to treat human customers as steerage. The only thing that made the experience worse was the impossibility of choosing my seat online for my return because I had only a smart phone with not-great wifi available. Choosing one's seat should not be dependent on having good wifi and a computer, however. It is bad practice to "sell" seat choices. The families around me were not able to sit together because of this shoddy, greedy practice on the part of the airline. It is also not fair, subsequently, that other passengers are faced with giving up the seats they've chosen, or been given, to assist families in sitting together. Honestly, the extent of the greed on the part of airlines nowadays is astonishing. What used to be a thoroughly enjoyable way of traveling has become an ordeal at best."
Cons: "Seats too small/legroom."
Cons: "Too narrow seats."
Pros: "Quick flight, good service"
Cons: "Old airplane crappy entertainment system"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accommodations were nice"
Cons: "Delayed flight and lost my luggage..."
Pros: "Nothing! It was the first day of our honeymoon, and it was ruined by Swiss."
Cons: "This (attempted) flight was like living a nightmare. The aircraft had a problem with the A/C, so we sat in the extremely hot aircraft on the tarmac for 2 hours while they tried to fix the problem. Then, when we were finally told that the aircraft could not fly, the Swiss staff said that we were "not allowed" to leave the aircraft. After stressed passengers confronted the crew demanding to be let off the aircraft, we went back into the terminal to wait for hours in line as just two Swiss staff filled out hotel vouchers by hand for over 200 passengers. Adding insult to injury, we were then told to wait for a hotel shuttle at the curb, despite the fact that the shuttle had stopped running hours earlier at midnight. I didn't fly to Switzerland until the next day, losing hundreds of dollars on a missed hotel stay in Zurich, and travel plans. And it was an awful start to my honeymoon. The way the Swiss staff treated us was unconscionable and insulting. They have not responded to my several written complaints, so maybe Kayak can help!!!"
Pros: "Staff was very polite"
Cons: "Our flight got cancelled and it was slow rebooking very confusing"
Cons: "Communication was terrible."
Pros: "We had delays boarding and no one was there to explain why."
Pros: "The flight experience was efficient and secure; that's good. Staff generally professional."
Cons: "The seats were too small, and the food wasn't good enough, especially the 'salad' which consisted of some moderately old browned lettuce with no tomatoes. Happened on my flight back as well. The one time when I thought the staff faltered was when I hit the paige attendant button, and noone came for 25 mins. I ended up walking to the back of the plane and asking for water myself. I also thought some of the materials used in the plane were cheap, like the foldout tables on the back of the seat, the pillow covers, and the headphones (one of which broke midway). The headphones don't cover the noise of the jet in flight very well."
Cons: "Terrible service. Crew was unfriendly and unhelpful. There seems to be an element of arrogance when flying with this airlines."
Pros: "On every flight I have ever been on, if I request it I can get a whole water bottle vs. the small cups offered...however on this flight they refused saying 'it is against the rules"?? As a result I had to bother the flight crew over 10 times to refill my small glass...a huge inconvenience for both of us. The other inconvenience (one I have not experienced in over 5-6 years) was the the headphone jacks were the old fashioned kind...meaning you could not use your own, and the buds given by the airline were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Seat was broken. No leg room. Really no room at all if person in front is reclined."
Pros: "Crew was great, polite and pleasant. This is the only good thing about the flight."
Cons: "The agent at the check-in had no clue what he was doing. He had to ask his neighboring agents a dozen questions to check us in (4 passengers, 3 bags and 2 car seats). On top of that, his whole demeanor was condescending, treating us as if we had never flown an airplane before. We are big are traveling light, so we had 2 small suitcases, small enough that we never have to check them in for the US domestic flights. I asked the check-in agent if the small ones were needed to be checked in or if they could be taken as carry-ons. He made a big deal that they were too big and had to be checked in. But when we boarded the plane, we saw that about a quarter of the carry-on bags in the plane were as big as our small suitcases! We were in row 30+. The leg room was the narrowest I have had in all international flights I flew in. Having longer than average legs, it was pure torture for the duration of the overnight flight. The best part of the dinner they served was the croissant - that should give you an idea. I don't think I would voluntarily choose Swiss Air again."
Pros: "Good staff, food, service"
Cons: "No leg room for us tall people!"
Cons: "late due to late arrival to Zurich, 45 min late."
Pros: "Everything. I have been Flying Swiss for 10 years back and forth to Europe, must be over 25 flights I have taken with them. I think there has only been ONE delay in all those flights, and that was because of bad weather. I feel safe on every flight I take with them, they are sticklers for safety regulations and always get out on time! The planes are always clean. The flight attendants are always making sure you are ok, without bothering you too much! I wish they flew US domestic flights! I would never fly any other airline!"
Cons: "not much leg room, but that is typical on ALL planes... just the nature of the beast. Nothing more negative to say about Swiss... every other airline should take a lesson from them. I said "good" for teh food because it's airline food... as far as that goes Swiss is ok... I never like airline food anyway, and you get on eh plane at 9:00pm, who wants to eat dinner at that time anyway??"
Pros: "Was fed dinner and breakfast on an overnight flight, all was very good. Pillows and a blanket made it a very comfortable flight"
Pros: "- direct flight"
Cons: "- terrible seats/entertainment - terrible food - terrible service in general and unfriendly with any requests"
Cons: "Was perfect"
Pros: "I was not able to make the flight due to the coronavirus. The hospital I’m employed at banned outside travel. I tried contacting the airline and kayak to get a refund."
Cons: "I was not able to make the flight due to the coronavirus. The hospital I’m employed at banned outside travel. I tried contacting the airline and kayak to get a refund or a voucher"
Pros: "Baggage policy and amenities on board as well as the Istanbul airport as a connector."
Cons: "Too tight seatings"
Pros: "Slept in the flight for 5 hours and my toddler did too , was quiet in the cabin and this is the only good thing"
Cons: "Boarding they kept me and couple othee guys like seeiously 5 staff people at the gate doing nothing and you ask anyone please help i want to tag my stroller so i can board ans go on boarding line, no response only one peeson will work. the rest of the four are completely useless, i eventually told my wife to board with our daughter so they have the time to sit and prepare food etc and pull things they will need durimg flight Andi waited on this last staff person at the gate until she gave me the tag to the stroller and boarded later First meal they said either fish or beaf meat balls, i like both and no problem, but the crew said no fish anymore so you you will take beaf, OK Luckily neither my wife or daughter ate it Because after I ate it, 3-4 hrs later, I had the worst stomach pain ever and was in pain the rest of the flight and the remaining of the day after we landed FYI I ate just crackers and like all bread sandwiches all morning and was completely fine- just the beaf meat balls either not cocked or remains of non good beaf and other things- horrible food"
Pros: "The food and the selection of movies"
Cons: "No usb chargers on plane"
Pros: "Stewardess were very friendly and helpful, the food was reallz delicious. You have enough space for your leg even on Economy class."
Cons: "To long of a flight"
Pros: "Turkish Airlines offers an experience much better than your average two-hour plane hop in the U.S. There was a full meal served, staff were kind and didn’t try to sell a bunch of extra stuff to you, and there were many choices for in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the children on the plane were really poorly behaved and loud. In addition, the flight was delayed by 1 full hour and when we arrived in Vienna our luggage (and the luggage of many other passengers) had not been sent with us. We waited in line for luggage for 30 minutes, then another line for at least 30 more minutes to report the missing bag, and we were then told that it wouldn’t arrive for another day and would be delivered to us within a 3 hour window in the middle of the day. This was essentially an entire night and day lost to a mishap that the airline didn’t even notify us of when we landed. Pretty frustrating."
Pros: "All was great, until..."
Cons: "... the person in front of me reclined their seat. That was the end of my comfort. I’m 5.11”- 1.80cm. Couldn’t watch tv, had trouble eating."
Pros: "Good service, friendly staff."
Cons: "Istanbul airport is obviously outdated and very crowded. Only one restroom for a huge area around gates 300-309."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food and in flight entertainment"
Pros: "The flight and crew were fine. But I am frustrated with Turkish Airlines and their non-response about my tax refund for a flight I did not use."
Cons: "I am disappointed that Turkish Airlines has not responded to my request for a refund on taxes for this same flight that I did not use on February 19 because I was sick. Dhaka-Istanbul-Tirana-Istanbul-Chicago. They made me pay double what I paid for the entire round trip flight to move this flight 2 days later when I was well enough to fly. I have called and written several times and they have not responded. I have used Turkish Airlines for years and this is very disappointing, I am entitled to the airport taxes that I paid and did not use."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Seats on the way to Istanbul were extremely small. One of them was broken and did not recline. Food was not good."
Cons: "crew was so helpful"
Cons: "On the registration checking in in Boston Logan Airport they did not tell me that I as an american citizen must have a visa. After arriving to Turkey they refused me to get in and sent me back to the states. I want refund all my expenses on this trip."
Pros: "I bought a ticket for three persons: my wife, my daughtet and me. I am Nigerian, my daughter American, and my wife's Turkish. However, because of the diplomatic row between Turkey and the U.S., my daughter was refused entry into Turkey. Turkish airlines' policy was to refund the ticket of any American caught in this row. They said they will refund my one month old daughter's ticket. However, my wife and i will not receive a refund. We bought the three tickets together. Our ticket numbers ended in 235...51, 235...52, and 235...53. However, they will not refund our whole money by cancelling the ticket but only that of my daughter. So this is the question: Does Turkish airline want me to leave my one-month old baby in the U.S. and tavel with my wife to Turkey? What kind of parents will we be if we were to abandon our daughter to take a trip to Turkey. Even, the people in Turkish airlines will judge us evil parents, yet that was exactly the only option they gave us. Lose your daughter or lose your ticket money. They will not even just change our iternary or give us another destination we suggested without penalties which are almost 3/4 of our initial ticket price. They just made away with our money. You cannot say, 'We are cancelling tickets for American citizens' but make no exception for parents of infant citizens. This is the height of criminality. So, me and my family couldn't take the flight and lost $1500. We had to buy another ticket by airfloat to get to Georgia. But Turkish airlines refused to even contact us on the refund for my daughter. A truly criminal enterprise."
Cons: "They had a vague refund policy for Americans, forgetting that American infants can also have none-American parents who are as much victims in this as the American infant. For them to be myopic and keep repeating talking points of their refund policy is unfortunate to say the least."
Pros: "Good service everywhere"
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "wifi was announced but did not work"
Cons: "Comfort, service, food"
Pros: "Great crew and food"
Cons: "Seat comfort/space"
Cons: "Crew were rude and everything we asked for was an issue like we didn't exist not sure if they had a problem because we had a baby with us"
Pros: "Window seat, decent selection of movies / shows."
Cons: "VERY small seats. Staff not very attentive."
Pros: "Crew members were nice People were good at check in as well"
Cons: "It was ok but room to improve everywhere It's matter of process where it may help to choose international standards rather than follow ones preferences"
Pros: "Comfort and boarding was well done, comfort is really good"
Cons: "Crew was little bit nervous and not nice all the time!"
Cons: "There was not enough milk while they know there is alot of kids"
Pros: "Everything, starting from the airport's employee"
Pros: "Food, service, comfort packs."
Cons: "Horrible customer service. We paid in case of change in flight plan .your airline said no money back."
Pros: "The seats was comfortable"
Cons: "The price was good"
Cons: "not all the crew spoke English"
Cons: "The seat was very worn and I was sitting on rebar. Thankfully it was a short flight."
Pros: "We travel and used different airlines but Turkish airlines is one of the best."
Pros: "I flew Turkish Airlines this year - 2 domestic flights and 3 international - and every flight was great. The long-distance flight (Japan-Istanbul) especially. My seat was more comfortable than with USA companies I've used, I was fed on short-lap flights and provided a pillow (no extra charges), I had real milk to put in my coffee (not chemical creamer) and I didn't pay extra for baggage. Flights were on time, crews were friendly. I'll be using Turkish Airlines more in the future, for certain."
Pros: "The flight was good. The food was good and the air hostesses were courteous. There was fair leg space in the economy flight and entertainment was also good. However, the negatives far outweighed these positives."
Cons: "The layover arrangements were a shame. No proper accommodation was provided despite having over a 24 hour wait period. I along with other passengers were stacked in dorm style non barricaded rooms in 1.5ft wide beds like animals. It was in total poor taste. Half the Turkish Air employees I approached at the Airport for help with directions and clarifications were dismissive to the point of being obnoxious. Walking through the airport, all I could think was what a disorganized and hard to navigate airport it was. It was an unpleasant experience and I will never recommend Turkish Airline to anyone. It was my first Turkish air, and it will be my last."
Pros: "The Air hostess are aware of what they are doing, they can manage extra requests from different people."
Cons: "The workers at the boarding they don't have good language to new people they think every one should know every thing about Turkish schedule and other information, It is a little bit strange to have no where to sit at Instambul Airport while having wheel chairs for sick people after bringing them at the waiting place where do you think they will be sitting."
Pros: "good selection of movies free drinks"
Cons: "food was not too good"
Cons: "Delayed a couple hours."
Pros: "Almost everything. Food ..."
Cons: "Was great overall."
Pros: "Flight was great overall, but the one piece that I'm hoping is not a repeat is the overly frequent reminders, especially since this was an overnight flight."
Cons: "Too many redundant and unnecessary announcements"
Pros: "I liked the food"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, the entertainment screen haven't changed since 2001 i guess; very bad quality, and it broke down at the middle of flight."
Pros: "The willingness to help."
Cons: "Longer route of flight."
Pros: "The food was excellent on this airline. The service was great. I recommend this airline."
Cons: "Sadly the airlines treat us like cattle now the way they squeeze us in like sardines in their non-adjustable seats. This appears to be true on all most airlines."
Cons: "The flight left very early, without prior warning, so that I almost missed it, despite arriving at the gate at the designated boarding time! The breakfast was also barely edible, which was a surprise as the other times I have flown Turkish the food has been delicious."
Pros: "nice large screens for entertainment."
Cons: "the cabin temperature was too warm making the flight rather uncomfortable."
Pros: "My check-in experience was very bad. I was doing a business class check-in which was not at all a "business" class experience. The agent was very inexperienced and rude."
Pros: "Nice flight. Great movie selection."
Cons: "I'd like more leg room and tastier food."
Cons: "Seats were a little dirty especially for the COVID-19 going around."
Cons: "Boarding crew not very friendly"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Crew was great, check in was fast. Overall great experience."
Pros: "crew was fine"
Cons: "terrible space/legroom. Very cramped tray table, couldn't fit laptop on it. Made me check my carry on bag. not even gate check, checked to baggage claim. Yet there was still overhead space once I got on. Lots of . overbooking - should never happen in this day and age. Delta does not deserve its "#1" rating. The rating system seems biased. Probably paid off by delta. Southwest is way better for economy class."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Departure times"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Other travellers where rude"
Pros: "There were a few hiccups with the overall flight process, but the crew was very friendly and informed everyone in a timely manner of the situation. There were also good snacks. Also, flexible baggage policy, which was great."
Cons: "The boarding situation is odd and less organized or structured than any of the other airlines I've flown with."
Cons: "Explain why there’s over a 2 hour delay"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. The seats were very comfortable and the entertainment screen functioned perfectly with a great selection of things to watch."
Cons: "The boarding process seems slightly longer for delta than other airlines. I figure you’re aware of this and are working on streamlining this. Further while the safety animation yo have made is cute is a little confusing at times."
Cons: "No WiFi. Little service."
Pros: "Everything was good except boarding was delayed several times and even after everyone had boarded. We arrived 2 hours behind originally scheduled time as the result."
Cons: "Delta needs to try harder to minimize flight delays."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "Didn’t like security. They were rude"
Pros: "Our seats were assigned at the gate. Somehow we were given the comfort + seats. Very nice! Thank you!"
Cons: "Please reduce your delays - again we took off with more than an hour delay and by definition you are responsible of that disagreement, you are the company I am paying for the service...."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "I actually can not complain"
Pros: "I did get home eventually"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Seats are cramped."
Pros: "The crew on the airplane was great. We had 2.5 hours turbulences but the crew started to give out drinks as soon they got the ok from the pilot"
Cons: "We went in LGA to the Baggage drop off and the employee there was super rude. On the flight to New York with Delta we had to check our carry ons at the gate because it wasn't enough room for bags in the airplane.so we asked when we checked our one suitcase if we can/should check our carry ons to avoid having to do it at the gate. The delta employee told me sure no problem. He checks in my one suitcase I purchased gives me the tracking paper and says ok have a good flight. I asked him so what is with our carry ons and he told us that that would cost 25$ and we can't check those in at the drop off?!?We ended up taking the carry ons with to the gate and then off course there wasn't enough room on the airplane that we had to check it in. And surprise it was free?? We had never issues with Lufthansa, icelandair etc. with checking our bags at drop off to not needing to carry it around and than still end up to check it at the airplane. Every airline has been more than happy that we volunteer to check our bags that they don't have the trouble at the gate."
Cons: "flights all on Delta - about one a week for 3 months straight - and yet when Delta cancelled my flight and re-booked they did not give me any upgrade or loyalty as I saw it - I had paid extra for Delta Comfort and they told me the flight they re-booked me on simply did not have any comfort available. However, I was not the one canceling the flight and re-booking - that is their problem and after so much loyalty for years I feel like I should have gotten some kind of upgrade for free...If I have to cancel - I have to pay fees - but if they cancel - I lose ...despite being a very loyal SkyMiles customer. I am quite disillusioned with Delta now and will have to look around to see what other airlines there are now - and my entire family - and what kind of loyalty they give to their loyal customers. It needs to be a two-way"
Pros: "The crew was nice and did the best they could"
Cons: "The flight was late, extremely turbulent, and was spent mostly under 10k feet, so wifi was available for only a very short time"
Pros: "The last time we flew Delta, we were underwhelmed. Our flight was delayed several hours and there was nothing exceptional about it when it did finally leave. That was 5 years ago, and there's been a lot of changes. There I'd now in-flight entertainment, reasonably comfortable seats, and everything was on time."
Cons: "Virtually no food options."
Pros: "There were many delays and cancellations due to bad thunderstorms at LGA. Despite a few hours delayed (because the airport was closed due to the storm), the flight was still schedule to leave! I was very happy about that. They did issue waivers for those who could not make the later time. Once delta got the ok to fly.. The flight left the gate very fast and we arrived and exited the plane super fast too. The process was so efficient and quick, I did not feel the waiting period. The flight attendance were so happy and positive, they made he flight very enjoyable. Great job delta!"
Cons: "8 hours waiting in airport for a flight that could have been canceled at 3pm and given us our day back. We are traveling as a couple and one of us has a medical procedure scheduled that can’t be canceled. The lack of preparedness for this weather situation is disheartening."
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "They need to raise the temp on these planes. Give free blankets or put a warning on the boarding pass saying that you will freeze."
Cons: "I was delayed over 2 hours"
Pros: "The flight crew made me feel like my daughter and I were part of the crew. They were so accommodating, professional and funny."
Cons: "I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT MY FLIGHT."
Pros: "The on time departure. The air hostesses were very attentive. Fast baggage arrival"
Pros: "At least the flight wasn't cancelled?"
Cons: "Five minutes before the scheduled boarding time, it was announced the flight was delayed by 1 hour 25 minutes. I am almost certain this was not weather-related, according to flight trackers. I understand that weather delays are essentially out of airlines' hands. However, if the delay is caused for other reasons like "mechanical issues", or any other errors or miscommunications within the airline itself, then they should be held liable. My time is worth money, so any delays not weather-related should result in a reasonable refund based on the duration of the delay. An apology doesn't placate customers' frustration and inconvenience due to delays."
Cons: "When the passenger in front reclines their seat it was in my face The legroom wasn’t terrible but I had a hard time even reading since it was so close"
Pros: "The flight was practically empty!"
Cons: "Paid for comfort, Delta offered free drinks to everyone. Unfortunately though the flight attendant did not bring us the alcohol we ordered and mixed 3 different kinds of whiskey into two glasses! We always are given our bottles separate from the mixer. Oh well. Did to being in so late it took us an hour to get a cab in Detroit."
Pros: "Delta made the experience great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost two hours"
Cons: "Food .gate changes"
Pros: "Made friends on the way to Maine!"
Pros: "Plane clean."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding at LGA."
Pros: "Flight was on time, flight crew was kind and helpful, pilot was smooth and kept us informed of the flight status."
Pros: "For a short-haul flight on a small CRJ, it was the most pleasing and comfortable flight. No delays and everyone was pleasant from ground staff to flight crew."
Cons: "Delta doesn't manage their flight schedules and personnel with backup or standby crew in order to assist whenever there are delays across domestic flights. The plane was late to arrive at the gate and we were also told that while the pilot was ready to take off, we couldn't leave because we were waiting for a flight attendant to land from Pittsburgh (we were in La Guardia airport in NYC). delta would rather I convenience the flyer instead of hiring more personnel or figuring out standby or backup plans for delayed flights."
Pros: "Flight attendant had nice attitude."
Cons: "I asked for an aisle seat to provide relief to my right leg. I was given an aisle on my left. This was compounded by sitting next to a man so large that part of my space was taken, and this was Delta Comfort. Had I been given the requested seat, I would not have the sore neck and back I now have from leaning for 2 hours."
Pros: "Seats were reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding process was ok (they bused us over to the plane and then had us walking out halfway to the plane's stairs before frantically sending us back on the bus because the plane wasn't cleaned yet). Not a big deal but we were traveling with a 10 month old so miscommunications like that cause a larger inconvenience than usual. The real downer on the flight was when we needed hot water quickly to warm our infant's bottle. The stewardess had begun beverage service and was about 8 rows away from us. My wife hit the call button, expecting the stewardness to come over somewhat quickly. Instead, she just continued beverage service and got to us about 15 mins later. By that point it was too late and the baby was wailing from hunger. When we asked why, knowing that we had a small child, the stewardness didn't just push the cart forward and attend to us more quickly, she said she didn't want to do that. No apology, not even a sense of remorse. At the end of the day, a customer's experience will always be tainted by poor service and that is what we received on our flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants made the safety briefing extremely lively and personal, a wonderful break from the normal tedious process. The rest of the flight was quiet, uneventful, and pleasant in part due to their good nature. I cannot have gluten or soy, and I was brought a complimentary bag of potato chips that were gluten free - the one and only time this has happened! I hope to fly with this crew again someday."
Pros: "Delta changed me to another flight without charge and the rep was very accommodating and pleasant"
Cons: "Multiple delays, from 8:15 to 8:49 to 9:05 to 9:39 to 10:12 to 10:19 to 10:25. I am not joking. Honestly, if the delay is due to 'maintenance' for an incoming plane that has not left its originating destination, why quote any time at all? The check in rep did provide an announcement at 8:15 that although the time of departure had moved to 9:05 , he did not see how that was possible since our plane was on the ground in Richmond undergoing maintenance. I was in LGA. When I heard that, I changed to another flight, so the outcome was not as bad as it could have been. I am aware of these other times since my email is packed with Delta's notifications, which I welcome usually."
Pros: "Friendly service. On-time."
Cons: "No tv's in airplane."
Cons: "Everything. Boarded, day on the runway for nearly 3 hours, and then cancelled. No hotel allowance and all hotels near LGA full."
Cons: "seats were crowded"
Pros: "I loved getting an email with my baggage claim number."
Cons: "The food was the same snack they give in the evening and afternoon, even though it was morning- pretzel, peanuts, or cookies."
Everything was great thanks
The boarding at the Vienna airport was an absolute chaos; no rhyme or reason, no order just everyone shoving; I thought I was in some 3rd world country where the concept of organization and order has not reached 21st century. The web site is one of the worst, not intuitive or clear at all; it took me forever to book a seat and having to pay for it, another slap in the face. I traveled with Austrian air many times but this was just so frustrating and disappointing.
Same problem with aeroplan
Cons: "The fees for the sporting bag was out of control expensive"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Staff helpful"

Pros: "Staff and the service"
Cons: "Dinner was so bad"
Cons: "The crew dropped the bottle to the head of my son."

Cons: "Boarding process was not easy to hear and it was unclear where the line for our gate ended and the line for the gate right next to ours began"
Pros: "Absolutely fantastic service from the check in counter until deplaning. Delicious food, snacks & even wine & other alcohol included. The staff is super friendly & very tentative. It was really a treat to fly Austrian Airlines."
Cons: "This is just nit picking and if I absolutely had to I’d just hope for a more of a variety of movies, TV shows & music if possible."
Cons: "As a gluten free person dinner delicious but after 5-6 next hours for breakfast I got few small slices of melon... like really?? This will not feed anyone! For next time I know that I have to bring my own food.. so bad! While servis time we ordered whisky with cola and after one hour we went to ask for one more cause we wanted and CA told us they dont serve anymore whisky only wine or beer. Besides this things when I came to plane my sit and table tray was dirty so we had to put blanket over... for the first time I write bad feedback but I have to cause it was terrible.."
Cons: "Sweet or saulty 'Snack' is a joke"
Cons: "muffin for breakfast ?"
Cons: "No food terrible idea to serve orange, oll dos nasty hands Stick to a site"
Pros: "Flight crew & overall experience was positive. Meal & entertainment were good."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg room seats & were told we'd have exit row. We ended up in the middle section, which made it very uncomfortable for the overnight flight."

Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Flt was great - service was great"
Pros: "Flight was good and everything worked out perfectly."
Pros: "I thought the food was excellent. Better food in coach than I get on first class domestic flights. Also, the in-flight entertainment was very good. I watched a couple of science shows and extreme sports shows that I truly enjoyed."
Cons: "There wasn't much I did not enjoy that could be changed. I chose to go coach and had to put up with seating that was more cramped than I like, but I expected that."
Cons: "Designs of Business Class seatings need some improvement. It seemed there was waste of useful space. Therefore, the area for Business Class seating was big but there were not enough space for everything."
Pros: "Got to destination safe and sound and was thankful for that!"
Cons: "Boarding was messy. Food was ick- "chicken" tasted like a grade d boiled chicken nugget, terrible texture. Ladies on flight were kind, although not terribly helpful. Movie selection was pretty small and lots of Rated R movies, hard to find anything in the middle (not kids, but not adult)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but due to efforts of the pilot we were on time!"
Pros: "they asked me if I wanted an upgrade to business class - nice"
Cons: "they left all the lights on in the plane - difficult to sleep at night. Never had this happen before. Another lady from N.J., originally from SLovakia and going to Kosice for a visit complained about the same thing. SHe was worn out and so am I."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight."
Cons: "Boarding area cramped, all classes and rows boarded at same time."

Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant, calm, and efficient."
Pros: "Good movie selection on flight"
Cons: "Got bumped from the seat I reserved after boarding without explanation and when I explained I was traveling with a group was simply told that's too bad. Their customer service is awful and had already submitted a complaint for a return flight which was never followed up on."
Pros: "food was fine"
Cons: "to small seats"
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant"
Cons: "Very crowded plane!"
Pros: "Choice of movies Pillow plus blanket Snack-1/2 sandwich plus caramel mousse"
Cons: "I wasn't able to check in online therefor i got terrible seat. The guy next to me was very tall and big and he was stuck on me due to not enough space. I was extremly uncomfortable because he was rude when i asked him to let me out. I asked if i can change seats but the plane was full. I didn't get any sleep either. Extremly tiring and turbulent 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Service was spectacular. The United crew was awesome."
Pros: "Everything seemed all right"
Pros: "The entire experience was a joy. I was upgraded to business class and the difference was noticeable. I was comfortable and suffered no ill effects after. Much different that my trip home."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like"
Cons: "Seat was small and narrowed with no leg room at all Worst I've ever seen"
Pros: "Crew was nice, plane was new and clean, flight was safe with no issues"
Cons: "Plane was so small, I had a feeling I was on a low cost carrier in Europe. Even carry on couldn't fit above in the bins. This is very disappointing for an airline that used to be great. That plane was like the bottom level of the Titanic where people were squizzed in. Upon arrival in Vienna getting off the plane we had to take the stairs and the bus to the terminal - that's how small the plane was. Just awful."
Pros: "Overall the flight was better than most. The crew was friendly, competent and as attentive as coach allows these days. I appreciated the attendant who asked the man in front of me to put his seat back up during the meal. The little red pillows were great - big enough to be useful and comfortable. Although we chose not to watch a movie, we were impressed with the offerings. Comfort on a long flight in coach is a thing of the past but we knew that when we chose to fly that class."
Cons: "Most of the crew was great (hence the five star rating) and the flight in general was at least on a par with competitive airlines but we did have an unpleasant encounter with a young man who we were told was the purser. When my husband asked about what seemed to us like a very high level of security (including dogs on the gangway as we boarded the plane), this young man replied in a very condescending manner,"It's America. You tell me". Well, we are Americans, not always in agreement with our country's actions and attitudes, but that comment was needlessly dismissive and hostile."
Pros: "Great plane good price for plane ticket."
Pros: "Everything was very good with an exception of being very tight space wise"
Cons: "no leg room, tight rows"
Pros: "The staff were kind"
Cons: "The seat was worn down and very uncomfortable. The screen was super tiny and terrible quality. Everything was caked in old dirt"
Pros: "The food was good and was served with professionalism.It was an excellent service no doubt."
Cons: "Boarding process and food"
Cons: "Breakfast/snack is very bad, but no airline provides anything decent."
Pros: "The crew was very responsive. The dinner food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment touch screen was not responsive to the touch, neither for me nor for the other members of my family. The power socket in my seat was not working, but I could use that in my wife's seat."
Pros: "Very helpful and accommodating"
Pros: "Fly is Ok"
Cons: "Fly is Ok"
Cons: "We had reserved a gluten free meal for my wife. When I went to check in it was gone from our reservation. The crew attempted to put something together so she would have food to eat but the response from their customer support team on the phone was not great. I recommend verifying all meals twice before 48 hours out. On a 7+ hour flight this is not fun."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding process. Plane was nice. Great legroom. Plenty of storage. Flight crew was helpful and very pleasant. Food was good. They had personal entertainment screens with a wide variety of movies, tv shows and games to play."
Cons: "Liked it all. Would fly them again"
Cons: "All flights cancelled. Stuck overnight."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable at all causing loss of sleep and terrible back ache."
Pros: "The entertainment was great with very easy to use touchpad. Great movies also. Food was good also."
Cons: "Space between the seats was less than I remember."
Cons: "too cramped to get out of row to the isle."
Pros: "comfortable seats"

Pros: "Good pilots as usual new plane great service clean"
Cons: "Food could always get improvements"
Pros: "Really nice crew and service! Everyone was kind."
Cons: "I had problems with my t.v., the touch screen didn't respond / work very well. The pasta wasn't that appetizing either."
Pros: "Didn’t die."
Cons: "Took off almost an hour late. Flight personnel repeatedly skipped me for drinks, meals, etc. on plane for nearly 8 hours without a drop of water."
Cons: "Missed my flight because the baggage check in closed, but what bothered me was that the attendant did not give any solutions or help, just coldly said “you can’t get on because you can’t check in your bag” and continued to tell me that I should just throw my luggage and all my things away to at least check in and get my body on the plane. I felt like I had to coerce her for help or advice on what I should do with my situation and she didn’t really give me any beneficial help until right before my gate closed and my plane departed. As customer service, shouldn’t they offer help without having the customer feel like they need to convince the check in attendant to give them alternate solutions?"
Pros: "Movie selection, food, drinks"
Cons: "Lack of information on arrival (where to go, customs, etc.)"
Pros: "By far the best flying experience in a long time..."
Pros: "Missed the connection"
Cons: "Felt helpless and frustrated."
Pros: "The crew was spectacular. They had 20 crew members."
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive at our final destination of Madrid. It was awful. Also, after many passengers, including us, had fallen asleep, they woke us to put our seat backs up so the people behind us could put their tray tables down."
Pros: "Attentive crew. Smooth flight!"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "S7 asked for additional "fees" to cover flight expenses. They have charged extra for carry on luggage of 2,000 roubles. It was mentioned that it was international flight but they have refused to honor those rules. I have used the same bag on other airlines and did not have any problems."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The hot towelettes before eating was very nice."
Cons: "Squished in the middle of a row. Unable to get up and get things out of my bag. Video screen not working. I had been looking forward to catching up on some movies ( rarely have time for to or movies usually) was disappointed to have no working screen on such a long flight. Did appreciate the effort to supply a gluten free meal, unfortunately someone added whole wheat crackers ( luckily still in wrapper ). The boarding area was mixed with people trying to get to New Jersey at the next gate making it very crowded and confusing, people found themselves in the wrong line."
Pros: "The flight was on time, smooth connection"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Offered free direct tv to everyone but then came back on and said the "button" to select free tv wasn't working so never mind"
Pros: "Depart on time. Entertainment excellent"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Attention on the counter and at the boarding gate were excellent"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment system was broken, they changed me seats however that one wouldn't lean, after that went back to the original seat. In the second flight a baby was crying and they did nothing to remediate the situation for those that were around him. In the end I had a very bad flight"
Pros: "The flight crew was lovely, and the best part of the entertainment was the on plane cameras which we could watch. Very cool!"
Cons: "Gluten free meal for breakfast was a turkey sandwich?? I would have preferred yogurt"
Pros: "Overall good experience. I don't expect much for food on planes and dinner was acceptable."
Pros: "Aircraft crew and operations were excellent."
Cons: "My original itinerary was booked with Airfare.com with a 93 minute layover at ORD, subsequently abbreviated to 40 minutes. Despite my repeated requests, neither Airfare.com nor United nor Lufthansa were willing to adjust my consequent itinerary to correct that conspicuous deficiency. Instead, both United and Lufthansa representatives repeatedly assured me that the 40 minute connection would present no problem; and Airfare.com tried to extract a 33% premium on its original sale to make any such adjustment. As it turned out, my apprehensions were realized when boarding and tarmac delays at SFO consumed the entire layover, and a subsequent gate delay at ORD frustrated the commendable efforts of the flight crew to facilitate the de-boarding of passengers with close connections. Contrary to United and Lufthansa's explicit reassurances, the long run halfway down one concourse and all the way back up a second left me four minutes short of the gate closure. You guys need to get your act together. If either airline chooses to finance its operations by selling tickets to an "aggregator", such a business practice should not relieve the airline of its obligation to provide reliable service to its ultimate customer, the flyer. I am currently working to identify an appropriate regulatory agency to whom to report this cynical misrepresentation of services and the patently corrupt business model upon which it is based."
Pros: "Everything was good, on time and without problems"
Cons: "Chairs might have been more comfortable"
Pros: "Worst flight experience EVER"
Cons: "Still have not found our lost bags"
Cons: "The 24 layover in Chicago with no possible flight out. If I didn't make the rescheduled flight, I would have been at least 48 hours in the airport waiting on another flight. Because I was unfamiliar with the area and was not offered any accommodations, I didn't sleep the entire time I was in Chicago. I also had to stand in line for a very long time and by the time I was done rebooking my flight all the airport restaurants were closed. I understand there are flight cancellations, but it just would have been nice if the airport was a little more accommodating."
Pros: "Service and food were excellent."
Cons: "Every seat had headphones, but the plug didn't fit the available jack. If we hadn't brought our own earbuds it would have been 9 hours of silence."
Pros: "Hats off and Thank you to the Man behind the counter at the gate. My knees are bad and I walk with a cane, he ensured I was transported safely and in time to the new gate when we had to switch gates because of plane issues."
Cons: "When a couple of ladies boarded and were going to be seated in the exit isle. going by the color of their skin and the clothes they were wearing, the stewardess with long blonde hair, assumed they did not speak English, and rather rudely told them that they should not be in this row. To which they responded in prefect English. told her they were comfortable with the emergency seat and helping passengers. She kept pushing them and finally they switched with a couple other passengers. VERY RUDE!!!!"
Pros: "This flight was cancelled"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and we were rebooked on the 10:30 flight to Frankfurt"
Pros: "Excellent crew and very attentive, excellent seats most comfortable. Food was great. Very nice aircraft. Exceeded my expectation. Would recommend to everyone and would love to fly Lufthansa on our next trip!"
Cons: "Nothing that we can think of!"
Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "Sat in the middle of 4 people for a long flight...was not able to sleep at all."
Pros: "Attentive, friendly staff on flight. Choice of meals, good food and drink. Plenty of restrooms in economy. Good overheard and under seat storage. Information over the speaker system was shared in German, English, and sometimes French. Individual TV screen was nice. Good smooth flight. Boarding and deboarding were painless, even in economy."
Cons: "Economy seats a little too close together for a long flight. However, economy seating was comfortable. If possible, sharing information about where to locate customs in the arrival airport, would be a nice addition."
Cons: "I used to reserve seats without fees, but Lufthansa airlines requested a fee when I tried to reserve seats in advance."
Pros: "Luggage came pretty quickly."
Cons: "A female member of the cabin crew was rude to one of the passengers (either Latino or Middle Eastern), who was unable to fasten her children's seat belts and informed the crew shortly before the take off."
