Cons: "food was disgusting"
Pros: "I can say all the crew was amazing"
Cons: "They are doing excelent job."
Pros: "Flight was full but crew was attentive and very pleasant. Star Alliance Lounge at LAX had a good variety of food and drinks - Asian, western, small bites, snacks; red, white, bubbly and even a bartender who'll mix up cocktails. I love flying SQ."
Cons: "For a premium economy service, it was really good."
Pros: "The crew was lackluster; unusual for Singapore Airlines. Tall individuals will not like the business class seats."
Pros: "Amazing crew."
Cons: "Food focused on Japan on both legs, LAX to NRT and NRT to SIN. Variety would have been nice."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Singapore Airlines had a great reputation. Imagine my disappointment. It was a horrible flight. The crew was nice enough, but inattentive. The food, if such a term may be applied here, was inedible. Just vile. In flight entertainment was a complete joke. Boarding was awful, but it always is. Seats were extremely uncomfortable. This racket is the ultimate way to rip somebody off of $1000. Horrible."

Cons: "We stopped in Korea for two hours, that was not listed on my original itinerary. Then we were late to get to Singapore. My seat was very very small and I was seated next to two very large ppl."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was top notch. The inflight entertainment, touch screen and remote controlled, was so good i was up the entire time watching movies Black Panther, Downsizing, DeathWish, Pacific Rim and listening to the wonderful library of music, i was surprised at the range of music, from uncensored rap to big band."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Space was too tight"
Pros: "Very good service! Lots of flight attendants and they were kind the flight was long, but mostly smooth. The entertainment was good and there was a lot of it."
Cons: "The flight map was a mess. It either said we had 115 hours of flying time or 3.5 hours. Also, it showed the plane pointing in the opposite direction that we were flying in. A minor issue, but weird."
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable lay flat bed"
Pros: "I like the personal TV, my foot rest and water holder frequent water serve,"
Cons: "For me coffee is too strong, and I like the food on the way to Tokyo better than on the way back to LA"
Pros: "Clean aircraft. First rate and very attentive cabin staff. High Quality food and mid flight snacks. Its clear a lot of thought has gone into the making and running of this airline. My first experience and quite frankly I will fly SIA whenever possible."
Cons: "Cabin was to me a little warm during initial taxi at LAX. But not overly so."
Pros: "The service and fast flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "the crews were very polite and very helpful"
Pros: "the selection was impresive to m"
Pros: "Crew were helpful. Food was good, pillows and blankets in every seat was great. Seats a little small."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, new, spacious and quiet. The bathrooms were regularly maintained. The food quality, selection and quantity was excellent for the economy class. Even the serving utensils were solid metal and had a very high quality feel to it. Having an endless supply of mid flight snacks was also appreciatd I always like the warm wet towels, which were offered at take off and landing. The entertainment choices were endless, but because it had USB and regular power, I was able to work on my laptop and listen to my podcasts on phone without worrying about running out of battery."
Cons: "The crew lacked its usual pep and cheer. For some reason they seemed very introverted and tired. First time on Singapore Airline that I noticed. The amenities kit was a bit on the cheap side. Also, only the supplied two prong headphones could be used with the entertainment system, I would have preferred an option to use my high end ones -- this was the main reason I chose to just work and listen to my own music/podcasts instead of watching a movie. We boarded and disembarked through the business sections and the aisles were too narrow. The announcements were hard to hear and the temperature was set too low for half of the flight (to kept fluctuating requiring constant adjustment of blanket/jacket). Having said that will keep flying them."
Pros: "Lounge experience was excellent. Service on the airline in general was excellent. Food and drinks we're just great. I enjoyed the sleeper seat that I was in. Everything was super smooth and I'm so glad I flew with Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "Nothing negative to report"
Pros: "Touch screen entertainment system with great variety of programs. Good food, clean cabin, friendly crews. I'd fly again on Singapore Air over other domestic airlines and Japanese airlines."
Cons: "Sound quality of ear buds was not good. No issues if you travel with your own."
Pros: "The best long leg flight I've been on. I managed to get a whole row to myself and that made the 12hr flight so much better. The crew was very professional, kind, attentive, and it was grand."
Pros: "Customer service and food couldn't be better."
Pros: "Huge selection of movies Towel service, socks, and toothbrush for economy class Snacks included entire chocolate bars! Friendly staff"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The leg rests didn't have enough room to be useful. I'm only 5'10", which is average, not tall, so they should have had more legroom."
Pros: "The service is amazing. The stewardess are always smilin and very helpful. If you'd like anything extra, just ask and they'll bring it right over. The entertainment onboard was top notch"
Cons: "I would have wished for better back supported seats. 14hrs on a flight isn't quiet the best."
Pros: "Singapore airlines was also great and I very much enjoyed that flight even though it was 10 or more hours. The good was great and same for the entertainment . The whole flight was very pleasant . Also I loved the steamed towels that was something i haven't had on a flight before ."
Pros: "For medium range flights SQ uses A330s. Business class is really OK, not great. Each passenger can freely choose any configuration of the seat without inconveniencing others. Food is great, both in presentation and taste, and serve with refined courtesy... I will gladly fly on this aircraft again on my way back."
Cons: "The entertainment system has literally hundreds of choices -- many, many movies for all tastes under the sky. But there is one drawback. Each movie starts, not when you are ready, but when the system is ready ; you cannot pause, resume it, no fast-forward..."
Pros: "The stewardesses were extremely professional- attentive & pleasant. The toilet was well equipped. There was no delay in taking off Boarding was orderly & efficient & quick and so was disembarking. The snacks were nice- ice cream, apples, chops, sandwiches. Many other airlines don't even provide snacks on these long flights. The seats in wconomy were roomy & confortable."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that was bad but I didn't enjoy the breakfast. I would have preferred an American breakfast. It was a mixture of shrimp, potato & brocolli. Ivwould have pregerred a criossant & yogurt to the tiramisu & roll."
Pros: "The flight attendants were super attentive and took great care of me, even bringing me headache medicine."
Cons: "I was in a front row seat which meant using my table in the armrest would wake up my neighbor. (Not a big deal but a little awkward) It was also hard to sleep because the seats didn't recline enough."
Pros: "It was the best service ive ever had. The flight attendants came right away and were always coming up the aisle making sure we eye well hydrated and fed"
Pros: "Everything was very good. Great service smooth flight, landed early in Singapore."

Service was terrible. Flight attendants are rude. Almost feels like they’re doing you a favor. Skipped one of the meals on my row, when asked for water bottle they told me they didn’t have it. Didn’t pick up trash, skipped again for asking for a drink. Didn’t offer tea/coffee service at all. Overall very bad experience will not recommend or fly Qatar airways again

Lahore to Doha was great but Doha to JFK using American Airlines was horrendous

it would have been great to be disembarked from an Air Bridge instead of being bussed around the airport after a 16 hour Flight.

I changed the flight

Pros: "Add snacks between the males"
Cons: "Thank you"
Cons: "Heating and serving food in plastic containers."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew were not attentive. I needed milk for my child but they never came back. Their food was HORRIBLE and only two choices and both spicy and tasted disgusting. Honestly the worst flight for me with Qatar airways"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "When a very large man is placed next to someone else who is in a middle seat and cannot use the arm rests on either side, I would think the hostesses would make an effort to move one of the three considering there were multiple other open seats. He was also very old and could hardly stand up when needed. It was the most uncomfortable flight, if I had the money, I would definitely fly business class"
Pros: "The Q-suite is exceptionally comfortable and the door really does make a difference. I usually have difficulty sleeping but the isolation from aisle traffic and ambient noise reduction was enough to allow some very good sleep. Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."
Cons: "I did not find a gap"
Cons: "they cancelled by booking just before hour depature.."

Pros: "Very good crew"

Pros: "crew is very professional"
Cons: "this plane is really old and junky. other flight times on this route get a much better plane"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."
Pros: "Boarding and crew were excellent."
Cons: "Lack of information about the flight delay of 4hr 45 min apart from expected take off time."
Pros: "Every aspect of flight was wonderful, though I’m sure that fly"
Pros: "The cabin crew, the cabin crew, the cabin crew. Enough said. They are thoroughly trained and exhibited unparalleled professionalism"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Good service from cabin crew"
Cons: "Seat is quite small compared to other flight"
Pros: "Good legroom with respect to others airlines.. the plane is clean.. multiple bathroom so no long waits Dinner was tasty.. however the breakfast was not."

Cons: "it took awhile for us to get our bags in denpasar."
Pros: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"

Pros: "Incredible staff, fast boarding, great entertainment center."
Cons: "Breakfast frittata was like rubber."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time, meals were above expectations."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I miss my bag because the stuped worker. I arrived to my country without bag"
Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."
Cons: "Still stuck in Doha! Flight hasn't happened yet!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Entertainment unit was average"

Emirates canceled the booking on me without any explanation. There was no reason given and no option to rebook. Ended up rebooking on a different airline for double the original price that was locked with Emirates. Even though the refund was processed reasonably expeditiously, this experience is unacceptable.

Cons: "The crew service is very bad, they are rude. And the thing from dubai to Hyderabad one of the attendants doesn't even help with the luggage, don't close the top shelf behaved as if untounchavility prevailed which Is very bad"
Pros: "There was almost a two hour delay, there wasn’t any information communicated, everybody was just asked to take seats in the waiting area. The entire process wasn’t very well organised."
Cons: "Everything!! My seat was not extra wide, it was broke and would not recline...14hr flight!! Entertainment system didn’t work right."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Better food and cooked throughly and better seat and more blankets."
Pros: "Seat was okay and the laptop bag considered an extra carry-on was not good and I had to consolidate."
Cons: "Qatar airways allowed us to take both separately and we could take up exit row if available without payment"
Cons: "A 15 hour noisy flight. Careless mothers and their screaming kids. No Manors on telling them to be quiet or stop screaming. They played with their kids in an awfully loud sound."
Cons: "No it was good"
Pros: "."
Cons: "."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "The food and the crew way of speaking to people"
Pros: "Thank you"
Pros: "Everything Was Just Perfect"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "- We were made to sit in flight for 2 hours. Then all were offloaded. - We were made to sit on airport for flight for about 6 hours. - I was not allowed to exit or reschedule the flight until i waited for 6 hours. - Still its not confirmed whether the flight will depart on given time. - I missed my important work in India. - The new flight arrives Mumbai midnight 2:30 am which is very hectic for me. I paid more for the flight at the time of booking knowing it will reach in the evening."
Pros: "Cold meal was nice, standard business class, no amenities. Nice crew, welcome on board."
Cons: "The crew was in a constant hurry after. The meal was ok, but no cocktails served. Tablet was not working remotely, it has to be connected to the dock all the time. USB port was also not working, did not charge my phone. I’m glad that we did not buy the business upgrade for his flight before. It would felt wasting all our points. Luckily we were upgraded during check in. Check in was awful, they checked in 4 people in front of us roughly in 20 minutes in MLE. It felt like waiting for forever."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service, seats in bad shape, screen not working, ......"
Pros: "Excellent!!!"
Pros: "The leg space and the entertainment. The crew were very nice."
Cons: "The bathroom must be kept cleaner."

Pros: "I felt very pampered!"
Pros: "Emirates is everything we can wish"
Cons: "My seat was booked on Ile. it was chanded to window which I hate"
Cons: "Horrible service. Flight delayed for almost 4.5 hrs at the DFW. Missed connecting flight and requested them to switch another carrier. Request was denied and put in a red eye flight for next day. Pathetic Airlines"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was an hour late. Since the airlines only gave us a 2 hour layover knowing we would have to go through immigration and retrieve our luggage and recheck it, we missed our connection, then the airline tried to make us wait another 18 hours for a flight. We had been already traveling for two days. Airline offered no expedited support to get off the plane first or help through immigration, completely unacceptable!"
Pros: "The exit row due to my size good choice"
Pros: "Great service and smooth flight!"
Pros: "Crew is great and on their game"
Cons: "Stuck next to and surrounded by crying babies on a long haul flight is terrible. So uncomfortable! Wish I could afford to upgrade but I suppose I must tough it out:/"
Pros: "Nothing really. Packed like sardines in seats which are too narrow."
Cons: "2 hour delay at DFW because other flights de icing Diverted in mid Atlantic to Dublin because of problems with toilets. Waited 2-3 hours there. Missed connecting flight from Dubai to BLR. Only good thing was that Emirates gave me a boarding pass to a later flight and a meal voucher that was accepted with bad grace by the barista at terminal B Costas. Two of the meal voucher choices Cozi & Burger King had gone out of business!"
Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "There was no hotel reservation and I have to pay out of pocket. Why? I need a refund. You guys are responsible for that."
Pros: "Nice travel from Dallas to Dubai and I am happy."
Pros: "Very Kind"
Cons: "My seat assignment"
Cons: "My trip was business class from US to Dubai: The attendant woke me up for lunch time to tell me you have only one option as all other options are already taken! Wifi service was not working the whole flight duration because it was not even installed yet on the new aircraft."
Cons: "Excess baggage kilo rate is much more expensive than most airlines"
Pros: "All other service was ok except not giving hotel room for staying for the purpose of connection..."
Cons: "Stay over night for connection and emirate dine giving hotel"
Pros: "The service, the food and the comfort, as well as the entertainment are the best."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Firstly the check in for boarding pass took forever since there was only one counter that charged for extra luggage. I had to line up 3 times to get a boarding pass and almost missed my flight even though I came 2 hrs earlier. Secondly emirates does not give you Hotel even if your layover is for 14 hrs. Since my airline for final destination is another airline they said I don't qualify for it. It's a nightmare. I have travelled all other airline but by far emirates is the worst airline I travel. Terrible experience and I will never fly Emirates."
Cons: "The seat that was booked is stand by seat and so much problems arose. Last missing the flight."
Cons: "Didn't have a good experience in Kenya, not with flight but at the airport. Went through hell. They need to improve on their customer service. I am quite sure I am entitled to bring whatever I want as long as it's legal . But there's lots of corruption and they will mess up your reputation. But at the end of the day they want me to bribe them. I was Really upset."
Cons: "It was delayed for 8 hours!!!"
Pros: "I like the food , yummy"
Cons: "I was in window seat. When serving food and beverages crew didn't give much concern."

Cons: "19H i guess, window seat's screen was not working"
Pros: "Cordial staff and good food"
Cons: "Leg room and head phones did not work properly"
Cons: "They have been a nightmare to deal with and outright unethical. I do not plan to use Kayak any more due to this situation"
Pros: "Organized boarding n good in flt service"

The flight crew directed me to the wrong aisle during the boarding process. Reaching my seat while pulling my luggage around was a hassle for me, as well as for the other passengers. One of the crew members almost refused to let me bring my carry-on onboard because they thought it wouldn’t fit in the overhead cabins. I use this bag for all my travels, and when it came to storing it above my seat, it fit. 2 other luggages fit alongside it without issue. That person made unnecessary hassle for me and left me feeling uncomfortable at the possibility of having to pay extra fees because of their incorrect and unneeded opinion. The entertainment was extremely limited with about 10 movies available, as well as 7 shows. This was a 15 hour flight, so it would have been nice to have more options.

None

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "I requested a vegan vegetarian meal and did not get it. I had to do with the regular meal which had a lot of dairy products to which I am allergic to. The space between rows of seats. It was really crammed in Economy and we are a petite thin family!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The seats had such little cushion that it made the flight extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Liked the time of the flight."
Cons: "It left late."
Pros: "The crew was really great and helpful"
Cons: "Only thing that could have been better was ginger ale."
Cons: "The plane was SO hot and stuffy. It was an overnight flight, so they passed out blankets—but it was so hot no one used them. The air was stale, to the point of feeling claustrophobic."
Pros: "Crew, food, boarding, service"
Cons: "Very tight seats. Not enough of leg room"
Cons: "It would have better if the flight wasn’t 5 hours late."
Pros: "Good entertainment options"
Cons: "two of the three phone charge ports were not working I think the passenger seating areas may not have been deep cleaned"
Cons: "Seat comfort. Sore behind after 11hrs"
Cons: "A little more leg room would be great"
Pros: "Hospitality was wonderful. The food and drinks were great and the constant entertainment made the 10+ hour flight bearable."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable but there is definitely not enough leg room especially if you are sitting in the middle seat. There should be some type of incentive given if you get stuck sitting between two complete strangers."
Pros: "Very nice crew. The flight attendant brought me a second dessert after I raved about it (excellent strawberry mousse!) Warm croissants and bread for breakfast! The even came with seconds. Yes! Delicious Easter eggs on both flights. Good selection of movies"
Cons: "The width of the seats. Tricky to have that elbow rest, it is you or your neighbor!"
Pros: "The food was decent and on board entertainment was pretty good."
Cons: "The boarding experience was terrible. We bought new lightweight International sized carry-on bags for our family of four and packed extremely light to keep each of bags under the 8 kg weight limit for carry-on bags. The crew required us to check them anyway! So incredibly annoying."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "I do not know how to go about contesting his, but we bought 4 tickets to South Africa on Swiss air and Edelweiss via Zurich. We received a confirmation email for two of the tickets but not for the other two so we assumed the other ones did not go through as we used two different credit cards."
Cons: "We purchased the last two again and when we showed up at the ticket counted they let us know that we bought 6 tickets!!!!!!!! We would like to be reimbursed for the two tickets we did not receive the confirmation emails for. How can we go about it?"
Pros: "The crew was professional and helpful. The flight attendant was especially kind to the children giving them activities and toys to play with. The seats were spacious and comfortable. The food was good."
Cons: "It’s a small thing, but it’d be nice to have more variety of movies to choose from."
Pros: "Swiss Airlines Saff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "0"
Pros: "The food was delicious, the staff was wonderful. Entertainment was awesome."
Cons: "The leg room or seat closeness."
Pros: "Smooth ride, most of the crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "Some crew not so friendly. I was surprised we received dinner immediately but nothing again until breakfast box upon landing. It would’ve been nice to have a snack in between"
Pros: "Steward Very pleasant, helpful and accomodating."
Cons: "No information on the flight about how to proceed with our missed conncetions nor anyone to meet in Zurich at gate with information."
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 1 hour at least after overlay of 4 hours. I missed my flight from Vienna to Yerevan and the portion of my trip was detoured to Moscow and from there to Yerevan instead of 3 hours took me 8 hours. As a result of rushing and running in Vienna to catch my flight to Yerevan I feel and injured my hip, I would like a compensation , Please contact me at armine100@cox.net or phone 703-609-8649"
Pros: "The lovely nice stewardess and Crew kindness."
Cons: "I have faced the horrific flight ever in my life last days, I never imagined a completely 4-5 Hours such horror turbulence on a long Night flight. thank God we made, and thank the lovely crew for their super support.."
Pros: "Staff friendly and flight very smooth"
Cons: "The breakfast was very poor. Two different servings of OJ(why?), non fat yoghurt and bread. Coffee came with only one cream. Media screen and audio did not work, and usb charger kept turning off. Barely able to recharge phone over the span of 10 hour flight! My next neighbor had same problem."
Cons: "They put us in different seats. My 7 year old and 3year old were all sitting separately and we could not switch with anyone. The air hostesses were not as helpful as other airlines."
Pros: "On time and good service!"
Cons: "Nasty landing, last 5 min plane dropped 4to 5 times for whatever reason. Felt like it was a sesna"
Pros: "Friendly team, great food and snacks and tons of movies to choose from."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Food was good for airline food."
Cons: "Swiss air seems to have lost its service edge. The flight attendants just stood around and watched while I struggled with my cane and my bag. They only seemed to snap into action to tell people what to do or not do. I flew the same route two years ago and staff was really kind. Maybe the working conditions have changed; they seemed harried and annoyed (in coach, at least). And I don't think they had to stand in line for an _hour_ to check in (thanks, LAX)."
Pros: "Food great!"
Cons: "Limited space , very narrow and not very clean. I seated next to a dog, pet. The whole trip the dog was sitting on the floor next to me:(, although it was a very quiet and good dog. Crew not very friendly . They were tired I believe ."
Pros: "Flight attendants where very nice and attentive. Good choice of movies and shows for adults and kids. I usually don't eat airplane food but it looked fresh and my kids enjoyed the breakfast very much with fresh baked bread and croissant. My flight was delayed by one hour but it was a problem caused by the airport not the airline. I still made my connection and I received my suitcaises right away."
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic"
Pros: "The crew made the right call after the Swiss computers shutted down"
Cons: "Boarding problem. But I have to congratulate the crew for their efforts to overcome the problem in the best possible way"
Cons: "Very narrow seats. Seat in front reclines in your face. Terrible experience for 100% full long haul flight from LAX to ZRH"
Pros: "Traveling with 3 kids, Swiss kept our seats the same, had our special meals sorted, crew was kind and courteous. Entertainment for everyone."
Cons: "Overnight flight lights too bright, economy seats very narrow (and that's all we ever fly), it was extremely difficult to sleep."
Pros: "The larding was terrible. I came in a wheelchair but am able to walk short distances. I spoke to man at the gate about boarding early and he said he would come and get me. But he did not and I had to push and shove with everyone else as their is no plan. Awful! Service was good. Lots of water and juice brought round in the night of"
Pros: "So far so good."
Pros: "Flight crew and gate agents were amazing"
Cons: "Boarding was late and we were asked to stand in line down the hallway for an extended period of time Movie selection small"

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "It was good"
Pros: "That is wasn't crowded"
Cons: "That I had a 5 hour delay and I was t informed about it earlier"
Pros: "Crew was really nice, comfortable seat, great experience"
Cons: "I liked everything"

Pros: "I loved the food, the crew, and the entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "entertainment system was good. Pilot was nice crew was pretty nice ."
Cons: "No leg room uncomfortable seats food has gone way down hill since 2 years ago. None of the good chocolates anymore. check in people at the gates were cold fish."
Pros: "Great food and sevice"
Cons: "Hard to sleep on the plane. Way too expensive to take a guitar as either checked luggage or carry on."
Cons: "I have used the same carryon on several trips & only Swiss would not let me carry it inside telling me it was a bit high. Disappointed & surprised since never before I was told I had to check-in my carryon containing some essential items."
Cons: "I was asked to move from my reserved seat for another flyer"
Pros: "The straff is very nice. this made the flight a positive for me"
Cons: "i work with tech stuff and i couldnt find the switch for english on the entertainment system, or how to turn it off so the glow would bother me."
Pros: "very nice flight, good attendants, plentiful with food and drink although dinner was dry (pasta) but tasted fine. Planes (I had to transfer) were on time and efficient. My carry on luggage was weighed which was unusual to me. It was overweight but the kind clerk checked my bag through with no charge as a favor. A pleasant surprise!"
Cons: "Had to make a lot of calls to clarify things. Website not always clear. An example is that I paid extra to reserve seats early and when I went online to do other things, although it showed that I had a seat reserved, it also said no reservations were being taken for the flight in a highlighted notice. Turns out it was just a general blanket message but to me it looked like my seat may have been cancelled. All phone representatives were courteous and helpful although sometimes their accents were strong and challenging to understand but they didn't mind repeating themselves until I understood."

Pros: "The crew were nice and friendly. The plane was new with lots of amenities"
