Pros: "Swiss is my new favorite airline."
Cons: "Nothing bad to report. Book Swiss!"
Pros: "I liked the attentiveness of staff and there was excellent communication between SWISS airlines and customers."
Cons: "I honestly had no issues with my flight."
Cons: "The seats are small with very little leg room"
Cons: "Had to pay the $259.00 to get another flight because my name wasn’t on the flight had to be on the phone for a hour and 28 minutes just to get my name on a flight after I paid over $900.00 on my round trip flight this was an awful experience and did not and will not book any flight ever with these airlines or the company representing them as VAYAMA"
Pros: "I did not receive a single email from kayak letting me know I could check in or select seats. No updates on flight status! Poor service!"
Cons: "Email updates before flight! Not a single email sent!!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Entertainment and dinner food"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Seat confort"
Pros: "Flight share with another airline so we couldn’t book our seats in advance."
Cons: "Space is cramped. Very professional and courteous crew."
Pros: "Professional, friendly service in every respect."
Cons: "Economy is profoundly uncomfortable -- as with all its competitors."
Pros: "Fast flight. Good service from luggage checking to landing."
Cons: "Way too spicy beef chili. Confined space on airbus."
Pros: "Ricaro seats often broken and backs don’t stay in the upright position."
Cons: "Food is terrible. The hot pocket meal served at the end of the westbound flight is even more than terrible. The (single) Oreo cookie served for dessert on the eastbound flight is rather disappointing and truely less than one would expect or hope for from a Swiss airline!"
Pros: "The service and the crew were fine"
Cons: "Seats are too small and terribly uncomfortable on such long flights."
Pros: "Everything was excellent from boarding with almost no delays to the service on board. We would definitely travel with swiss again"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats were horribly uncomfortable"
Cons: "The flat bed is narrow and VERY hard."
Pros: "Everything! Very professional, great food"
Pros: "Booked a flight to Europe. Online check in easy. Luggage dropoff at JFK had no line for online check in. Flight was on time, my luggage arrived in my final destination fine (had 1 transfer). Crew was efficient and attentive."
Cons: "Spaces for seats in the economy class are shrinking. With Swiss Air, seems more so as the seats recline quite a bit which is of course good for an 8-9 hours flight. However if the passenger in front of you reclines their seats, you absolutely are forced to recline yours immediately, otherwise no one will fit. Flight attendants have to ask passengers to put the seats back from reclining during meal service so people can open the food tray and are able to access it, that is how much the seats tilt."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and helpful. They were all multi-lingual and ready to help foreign travelers. The food was good. The plain wasn’t overstuffed with people - actually there were enough open seats that everyone could have a little extra space. Will always check Swiss Air first for international travel."
Pros: "Flight crew were great"
Cons: "In flight entertainment was Byzantine"
Pros: "Service was excelent puntualiti was excelente thank you very much"
Pros: "It was nice because plane was half empty so had quicker attention from stewards - everything was good."
Pros: "The crew took very good care of us with food and drinks"
Cons: "Updates by the captain about the situation were too few, too infrequent."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and courteous. Everything from check in to landing was simple and streamlined."
Cons: "The service was not great which surprised me for swiss. The flight attendant was absolutely not into work. The seats supposed to work.. wasn’t .. we had to switch the seats with no help and with the lights off. Awful .. of course they didn’t noticed so they didn’t woke me up for the breakfast. (And I’ve been asking for). Maybe was bad luck but that’s really ridiculous. During the flight they didn’t brought water or something we had to call them."
Cons: "The headset outlet is still the old one, so you can't use your own ."
Pros: "It reminds me of school dinners"
Cons: "Bland, over cooked No thought into the presentation or flavour"
Cons: "While I was on line to board, a flight assistant came to me and asked me if I was flying by myself. When I said yes. they upgraded me to business class. I boarded the plane and took my seat. Shortly before taking off, another flight attendant came to me, told me they made a mistake, and sent me back to my original economy seat (while I was holding my new business boarding pass that they gave me). When I told them they should remedy somehow their mistake, they said they did not have any other extra seat in business and that there was nothing they could do. They did not apologize. They were quite unprofessional and rude. I fly often and I have never experienced something so unprofessional and rude. Alitalia is far better than Swissair in terms of professionalism and of politeness. I will always discourage anyone from flying Swissair. Worst company ever."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Waiting in line in NYC for take off was about 50 minutes. Small seat space with annoying passengers who watch movies all night with bright screens or push and press my seat all the time. Earplug is uncomfortable, breakfast is plain, hot chocolate is horrible. It was a full flight and we even lost my daughter's cardigan."
Pros: "Loved the crew and movie options, the hydrating must in the bathroom was awesome!"
Cons: "I wish the seats were more comfortable"
Pros: "BEST FLIGHT OF MY LIFE"
Pros: "Good food, friendly staff"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and friendly"
Cons: "The legroom was good but the seats were very narrow causing larger people to overlap the armrests"
Pros: "Painless flight"
Cons: "No bottles of water for economy flyers"
Cons: "1stly the lady at the check in was not nice [ i should have gotten her name -] she was rude and quite 'authoritarian' which is uncalled for- when you have paid an expensive ticket are just trying to check in. then I checked an extra bag - and could not pay where i checked in. i had to go to another counter to pay - there was a line and it took a good few extra minutes - and i still had to get thru security. if you can pay at the check in counter this would avoid this extra step. i was really not happy about it swiss air needs better efficiency and better customer service"
Cons: "Swiss staff was not helpful at all at Zurich airport. I wanted to purchase a day pass in the Business class lounge. They said i could do that but need to do it online. When I couldn't get my device to bring up the right screen they said they couldn't help me. Bad customerbaervixe"
Cons: "I had a lot damaged luggage!"
Pros: "The boarding process was efficient. Swiss Air provides much more spacious and comfortable seating arrangements than many other airlines."
Cons: "My entertainment system would not turn off, which made it difficult for me to fall asleep. I asked a flight attendant for help and she said she would reset it. However, the reset did not work and she never came back to verify whether or not it had solved the situation. I finally gave up and put a blanket over the screen. Furthermore, the meal service was very slow. It seemed as if most of the staff was very young and likely inexperienced. Perhaps it would be better to mix younger, less experienced staff with more seasoned staff. I flew three other Swiss flights during my European vacation and the service was much faster. Incidentally, most of the staff on these other flights were older and probably more experienced."
Cons: "There is little that can be done to make a long haul flight comfortable when a baby is screaming and crying for it's entire duration. Its behaviour cannot be helped. But it certainly didn't make the flight comfortable, nor did the young child kicking incessantly at the back of my and my daughter's seats. This could have occurred on any flight, but it didn't contribute to having a positive experience on this one. The flight attendant serving breakfast completely ignored that fact that I was awake and strolled past without asking if I would like anything as meals were being served. I informed another flight attendant that we hadn't been offered breakfast and she was able to provide us with meals. Besides this the cabin crew were courteous and pleasant. I've flown with Swiss on other occasions and have had better experiences. I'd like to think this was just a one off and not representative of the level of service that Swiss normally provides."
Pros: "Spacious and good food"
Pros: "Boarding / deplaning process, well maintained aircraft, good food. Fair price."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "No delays at all. Couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "Screaming babies."
Pros: "Very efficient airline; all goes smoothly"
Cons: "Paid for preferred seating but legroom was still very bad. I'm small but the legroom was cramped"
Pros: "Food was good and flight crew was very kind and helpful!"
Pros: "Crew member Tania Galic was very helpful"
Pros: "Doing a fantastic job keep on"
Cons: "My name wasn't on the flight. I lost my seat."
Cons: "Waiting so long in the security check line. Food could be better."
Pros: "Quick and courteous service"
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: "Exit row seating for no extra charge"
Cons: "Seat mate not friendly"
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: "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."
Good service very nice pleople
Pros: "Customer service didn't help me change my flight!"
Cons: "Customer service didn't help me change my flight!"
Cons: "I arribes at the airport 1 he before the original flight time because the flight was delayed 50 minutes. Counter told me I couldn't check in my luggage anymore. Avianca was using any possible excuse to give seats to stand by passengers from other flights. There were very long lines of stand by people at the Avianca area."
Cons: "I think it makes a huge difference when the crew says something comforting before or during turbulence instead of just “buckle seat belts” it’s so simple yet goes so far is soothing anxiety but we got “BUCKLE SEAT BELTS” like wow"
Pros: "decent comfort on board"
Cons: "both flights delayed, some rude crew, and Avianca lost my luggage when I got to Medellin"
Pros: "Crew was great and friendly. The red-eye flight was half empty so I had a row to myself to sleep."
Cons: "I called two weeks before the flight to confirm my specific sport gear baggage fees (surfboard bag). They confirmed it would be $100 each way on Avianca. When I arrived, surprise, they said it’s busy season so now it’s $150 each way. Felt like they scam people when you have no choice at checkin."
Pros: "Great crew, organized, smooth flight, the team was awesome with my kids on our red eye, which made for such a better trip."
Cons: "No breakfast in the AM. I didn't mind because I wanted the time to sleep anyway, but we got there early"
Pros: "Nothing. Since I missed my conection with Avianca ( I got there 10 after the inicial boarding) Avianca didn’t let me enter"
Cons: "Customer service in Avianca sucks. I got charged $600 to get in the next flight, and nothing was my fault"
Pros: "The crew was accommodating"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and they changed my flight 3 times"
Pros: "Pretty much everything was great!"
Cons: "We got there to check our bags about 90 min before check in bc we were trying to avoid the chaos of rush hour time at LAX but avanica wouldn’t take our bags that early so we had to drag them around and wait till there’s were plenty of other people in line. This all could of been avoided and easier."
Cons: "I actually had to change my flight because the Avianca flight had a horrible delay. I took another one through El Salvador which was ok but it took me three hours to fix the new flight, Avianca did not try to help me with United, and I spent all night awake and missed my Brunch with my son."
Pros: "service, great plane, always on time. With Avianca you cannot go wrong. if you find a Delay is usually not because of them"
Pros: "Was unable to check in . You sent me an email stating the flight was delayed for 52min. I arrived to the airport and was told the flight was on time and it was never delayed and was unable to check in and board my flight."
Cons: "Seats are to small and food was overall not to par"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Service was a little off"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and showed great care, attended every need."
Cons: "Having to leave airport after waiting hours for a repair"
Pros: "The plane and it was in time. I could sleep"
Pros: "The overall experience was good. The flight crew were nice people. The food was surprisingly good - pork and rice with plantains. The flight attendants were a bit slower than my previous flight experience (2 hours prior) with serving food and beverages though."
Cons: "The tv never worked on row 35 efg. After the flight attendant refreshed the system 3 times, it still didn't work. Also, I heard the guy in front had auxillary issue too so he ended up playing games on his phone over finishing a movie he was watching. The flight attendant did offer to allow my friends and I switch seats to a seat where the tv worked (hence 3 stars, or else i would have rate a 1). We decided to stay at our seat and just enjoy the ride."
Cons: "A rating of one start is too much for this airline. Avianca caused me to miss my flight in LAX, refused to help me reach my ultimate destination for which I paid them hundreds of dollars to do, nor did they offer to credit my losses for which they were responsible. Customer Service was as useless as the individuals in person that I dealt with. I never made it to my destination because I was forced to return home to San Francisco, unable to see my wife-to-be in Brasil. I will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Checkin staff very helpful and quick boarding. Infligjt staff polite and professional"
Cons: "No much leg roon."
Cons: "I had to ask for a pillow 3 times, twice from the same flight attendant who never bothered to comply. The food and entertainment were good though."
Pros: "The flight was on time and comfortable"
Cons: "Waiting for immigration purposes, due to crowed area"
Pros: "The tv"
Cons: "They changed our flight at the last minute and didn’t ask - just did it. Screwed our schedules up"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. They cancelled my original flight and gave me 2 stops. When I tried to call customer service, I waited in the phone for 5 hrs and no one ever picked up. I gave up my seat as they asked and they told me I would get an aisle seat, instead I got a middle seat and they said they can’t change it back."
Pros: "Everything went fine until I got to Bogota and had to pick up my suitcases... they were to end in Cali"
Cons: "Having to change my flights from the bigining... the reason why I buy my tickets a months in advance is so I can have what I want and ask for... so changing from a direct flight from LAC to CLO and the. Having to have 3 stops want fun at all!!"
Pros: "Got there earlier"
Cons: "Flight went form the 31st of October at 10 pm to the 30th at 2 am. I️ had less than 2 hours to get ready for the flight. The connection were very long as well. Had to stop in Guatemala without notice and flight was delayed from Bogota to Cartagena. Worst flight experience ever, though I’m on vacation so it’s better than Work. And we didn’t die yay"
Pros: "seat leg was pretty good"
Cons: "without any prior notification they have cancelled my flight which was from LA to bogota which was an direct flight. When i aarrive at the check in counter they said that my flight has been cancelled and I hade to take LA -Sansalvador -Bogota flight"
Pros: "The flight schedule"
Cons: "First, the departure terminal didn't show up on the reader boards until it was almost time to go, so I had to sprint down to our gate. Then, they boarded by zones, but I had no idea what zone I was supposed to be in and it was nowhere on my ticket. Anywhere. Then, when I finally decided to go try to board, they wouldn't let me because they said I didn't have a return ticket. In fact, I had proof of onward travel in three different forms. But they insisted that I had to have a flight as proof of leaving Guatemala and assured me that customs would prevent me from entering. They also said I had 5 minutes to book something or I would miss the flight. No one ever paged me to discuss this prior to departure! And do you know how much Guatemala asked about my onward travel? Zero. Nada. In the fluster of buying an almost $400 ticket, I clicked to book through a third party that doesn't allow refunds. Fortunately, after I landed I called them right away to cancel and managed to make it happen since the ticket hadn't been issued, but if I had failed at that it would have been at least $130 when all was said and done. Ride was uncomfortable, flight attendants we're rude and impatient, and I was ignored for food service."
Pros: "Everything!!! Great flight on time"
Cons: "It was raining when I landed but thats out of you guys hands!"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and couldn't get us out for 24 hours and wouldn't accommodate us on other airlines"
Pros: "Aside from the issues below, it was a good flight."
Cons: "I was seated by an emergency exit, so i couldn't tilt my seat back. Also, everyone who walked by hit my left arm back and forth. It was very annoying. The cabin felt a bit claustrophobic."
Pros: "Very comfy. Very easy flight"
Cons: "Everything went well. More leg room would be nice"
Pros: "- Modern 787 aircraft."
Cons: "- Unconfortable seats on both planes. - crew was, in general rude and unnatentive."
Pros: "Got lucky with a free upgrade to 1st class and the crew always helpful."
Cons: "Tried to add an additional bag for 50 to 70 Lbs and website said $50 USD and they wanted to charge $100 USD for some reason. end up removing stuff from the bag to not get charge an extra $60 USD"
Pros: "The seat (space, comfort, cleanliness) was good"
Cons: "The crew (flight attendants) need to be trained much better if Avianca hopes to be a international airline. The attendants spend too much time sitting in the back of the plane and not enough checking for excess trash, customer comfort and general visibility. During the in-flight meal I found an object that looked like a piece of a plastic tie. I gave it to the flight attendant but she appeared unconcerned and indifferent to the situation, making no apology what so ever."
Pros: "Its ridiculous that if one changes dates for the flight, it is always more convenient to buy new round-trip instead of what would be just, paying a small difference."
Cons: "That even with a month in advance, a change in ticket is a ticket lost since you force the customer into a new roundtrip. I have already lost 2-3 returns this year for this reason so I feel cheated. It does not seem just."
Cons: "It was my sister's first flight ever. She was late to the airport (LA traffic) and then treated absolutely horribly by the agents at the desk. She ended up missing the entire trip on account of these heartless agents who refused to honor the "flat tire rule.""
Pros: "Crew was nice and individual tv screens were great! Free wine."
Cons: "God tasted like cardboard."
Pros: "Crew So kind"
Cons: "Food was not enough"
Pros: "Price was great but that's about it!"
Cons: "Every Avianca flight was delayed besides the national flight. First flight (Los Angeles to Bogotá) was delayed about 1.5 hours."
Pros: "The crew was professional and all the amenities made up for the terrible food."
Cons: "I ordered the steak and it was so dry I could not cut into it. Salad was uninspiring. I upgraded to business class and expected more."
Cons: "No pude hacer check in porque movieron mi reservación y casi pierdo el vuelo por un problema en la misma línea aérea. No supieron darme una pronta solución."
Cons: "El desayuno estaba un poco frio"
Pros: "Friendly people attended to you at all times when checking in and boarding, and assisted people to getting to the window that were in line to check in. Friendly and attentive crew. The movies were free and high quality options. Loved watching Brooklyn, Carol, Suffregette, and Bajo el Abrazo de la Serpiente., to and from L.A. Food and drinks were served. Direct flight and good price"
Cons: "The food could have been a little better, though I hate to complain since you rarely get food on a flight now. The Chicken pasta was excellent. the accompanying salad and snack were not that great."
Pros: "Avianca is top rate, great food, great people and excelent service. Free in flight movies and whisky, what more could you ask for?"
Cons: "Food was not fully prepared. potatoes were hard."
Pros: "Seats were good."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport was bad. Too hot and poor organization. There was no place to sit and we were not allowed to go to the gate where sitting place was available."
Pros: "Crew was professional and competent. Seats were roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "I have a hard time sleeping in any seat that doesn’t fully recline."
Pros: "Great staff and food"
Pros: "Service on the DFW-->FRA leg was phenomenal (ratio of attendants to fliers). Food was delicious and seats very comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding process and organization could have been a bit better in communicating access and groups. Not super critical, but the goal in in process is to be as efficient as possible."
Pros: "Lufthansa is a friendly airline but was unable to help with our problem because I had booked through Kayak."
Cons: "When I presented my passport at the counter to receive my boarding pass, I was told my passport needed to be over 3 months before expiration. It expires January 14, 2019. It is not written on the passport, nor mentioned during booking. I’ve been to Latvia four times previously and never heard this requirement. I cancelled the flight with Lufthansa who said I must call Kayak who gave me another number to call and that number then sent an email that said there was a $350 rebooking fee for each ticket, IF they decided I was eligible for rebooking. Yes, we got a great rate, but looks like wasted $ now. I will book directly with the airline in the future to ensure the ability to rebook."
Cons: "Great plane & serive & big bathrooms"
Cons: "I get Emergency to be sick and be in hospital and the request company for exchange my fly back from Slovakia back to my country USA and they declined my refund or exchange tickets even if I have doctors statement being in the hospital they’re rude and mean and decline make any changes for me"

Pros: "Upgraded to business class."
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Cons: "So there was a 2 hours delay in Dallas which resulted in 11 hours delay in Frankfurt .. this trip was horrible how did they dare do that to the passengers.. they should have gotten us a place to rest but we were left on the chairs in the airport.. will never fly Lufthansa anymore"
Pros: "We left DFW in extremely hot weather. The ground crew managed the boarding to keep everyone out of the hot tunnel entry as long as possible. Even through there was a delay in boarding already, the crew kept us well informed. The cabin crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Smooth flight and still made it to our connecting flight on time."
Cons: "Leg room in coach is really cramped but that is all airlines unfortunately."
Pros: "We upgraded to economy premium which was fantastic. With the exception of seats that lie down all the way, you feel like you are in business class."

Pros: "The flight crew was amazing and the overall experience was great."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "comfort was awful. seats in the cattle section are awfully uncomfortable and space is at premium. food was bad. the cleanliness of the bathrooms leaves a lot to the desire. the Frankfurt airport is just plain awful. overall, I would not recommend Lufthansa, it was just that I did not have a choice."
Pros: "Everything. Lufthansa is still the best."
Pros: "Boarding was late. Pilot said he would makeup the time, but he didn’t. Many passengers were late for their connecting flights.The Airbus was smooth and relatively quiet. Not much room for a 6 foot male. Crew was excellent. The food was just okay. Had to take a shuttle to and from the terminal in Frankfort, which added to the delays. Late boarding from Frankfurt to Stuttgart. Had to wait for the shuttle. Flight was fine."

Pros: "The staff was friendly, the seats were comfortable, and the price was perfect."
Cons: "The breakfast was terrible and the dinner was barely better."
Pros: "On time, punctual and efficient. Just what I would expect from Lufthansa."
Cons: "This was a 747, but in economy they've configured it with newer 10 across rows like they do on the new Dreamliner, which I hate. These new seats are much narrower in width (not ideal, but fair enough, the airline wants to maximise capacity) and much harder to sit on for a long haul flight (much less ideal, after a couple hours, the seats were just plain uncomfortable, by the end of the flight really unbearable). The food (pasta) was not particularly good and not to the usual standard I expected for Lufthansa. Staff were efficient, but not particularly friendly. To be honest, I've had better flights in terms of comfort on the likes of Ryanair and Thomas Cook."
Pros: "Very helpful crew, great service. Will fly again."
Cons: "Almost missed connecting flight had to run hard to make it. Airline did nothing to assure us that we will make it to next flight. Was very stressful, can do better."

Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled the flight with no reason That is right, they took the fare and cancelled the flight Passenger has no rights with this airline Stay away from Lufthansa"

Pros: "New crew on first flight but they we're even"
Cons: "Not much. Left sitting on a plane for over an hour & 1/2. Then taken into a door where I illegally entered the country. My passports seized. No other flight available to Dallas. Sent to Newark, NJ & missed the next flight to Dallas because Lufthansa lost my scooter. Someone pulled it by a wire and it doesn't run correctly. VERY BAD EXPERIENCE!!!"

Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."
Pros: "The flight was great."
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."
Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
