Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "It's Swiss!"
Pros: "Great service, very good selection of on-board entertainment"
Cons: "Long delay in boarding and take off was not addressed in any kind of announcement. Food is average"
Cons: "The ventilation didnt work on the connection from zurich to belgrade, it was like an oven in the plan and people were complaining, but nothing was done."
Pros: "Your crew was excellent and attentive. Nice difference from most US domestic airlines"
Cons: "All was great!"
Pros: "I really enjoyed Swiss flight. Especially, I liked that the food part. It was enought indeed. Moreover, food was delicious. Movie part was very very exciting as well. Thank you very much!"
Pros: "Flight made good time despite 1 hour departure delay. Was worried I wouldn't make my connection but my transfer gate was right by my arrival gate, very well planned, someone's obviously paying attention, which doesn't happen often these days."
Cons: "Tiny seats! Mediocre food and movie choices weren't great. On the upside, I ended up watching an Italian movie (English subtitles) that was interesting and never would've seen otherwise."
Pros: "Best level of service I've had in a long time, great meal and wine selection, comfortable lay-flat seats."
Cons: "Called ahead to book a special seat because of a back problem -- gave my credit card to the customer service agent, who assured me that all was in order, but when I arrived at the airport the day of the flight all information relating to this special reservation was gone...nowhere in the system. My complaints were met with nothing but rudeness by the Swiss Air employees at JFK. I then called Swiss Air, who confirmed that it was their error, but they told me that there was nothing that they could do, even when I asked if they cared that they were losing my business, they showed that they did not care at all. Never flying Swiss Air again."
Cons: "Better choice of movies"
Pros: "Nice folks"
Cons: "Economy is not very comfortable and still expensive. Espescially when the person in front lowers their seat."
Cons: "Entertainment didn’t work, the crew did nothing to help. The plane was hot and stuffy. My luggage is lost."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "Entertainment system was old and with few choices"
Cons: "Children children children....."
Cons: "Could've been on time"
Cons: "Screens need update, mis functions on equipment"

Pros: "Crews was very good and helpful."
Cons: "I have to pay $100 at the airport for my second bag, which was a total surprised to me. Because when the question of how many check bag came up and I put in 2. There should be a warning come up that it will be extra charges for the second bag."
Cons: "Difficult if not impossible to sleep in coach"
Pros: "Service god"
Cons: "Seat was broken. Would not recline. Challenging when already very tight Entertainment did not respond to use English as language choice"
Pros: "The crew were personable and the chocolate that was offered near the end of the flight was a nice touch."
Cons: "Cramped, cramped, cramped!!!!! The seat pitch was just so uncomfortably short so much so that when the person in front of me reclined his seat, the TV screen was a mere 1-2 feet away from my face making it impossible to watch anything without getting crossed eyed or a headache. This unfortunate situation has influenced this review greatly particularly because this wasn’t a 2 hour flight but a long haul one."
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 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 plane was ancient. offer wifi- at least be able to pay for it. charger outlets."
Cons: "Palermo never ready for plane arrival"
Pros: ";Flight attendants very attentive;"
Cons: "Leg space far too tight; could barely move; Unable to see TV screen due to angle, even at max tilt; Food was inedible; perhaps acceptable as dog food; Toilet seat would not stay up for male to pee. Worst international aircraft I've ever experienced. Recommend upgrading before selling any more seats."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "The staff upgraded me to business. It was a great wxperience"
Pros: "Ease of check in and ease of boarding. The non-stop flight was at an excellent price"
Cons: "Metal box under the seat cramped leg room. Seat jutted into the aisle, so I got bumped by every cart and everyone going to the lavatory."
Pros: "No problems to report. Boston to Zurich in under seven hours."
Pros: "11min for airplane docking and going through passport control . I have travelled the world but never seen a more efficient way than at Zurich airport.kudos."
Cons: "Outdated plane."
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: "Economy very tight but whose isn’t. Best selection of movies relative to the competition."
Pros: "On time; everyone friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I wasn't able to select seat before boarding"
Cons: "Staff not very friendly. Very small seat. Worn out plane."
Pros: "Kindness, courtesy and smiles"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Pros: "Everything !"
Pros: "Just like everything else the Swiss do, our Swiss air flight was like a well oiled machine. Very friendly crew, very good meals, lots of creatures comforts; blankets, pillows, headphones, warm washcloths in the morning. Great overall experience."
Cons: "The seat room is every bit as tight as any other airline, so if you're tall, and flying an overnight, upgrading to a seat with leg room might be worth the extra cost. Select your roomy seat early - they go fast!"
Pros: "The fights themselves were nice, the crew was pleasant and the dinner itself was a very nice surprise"
Cons: "Wow what a cramped space- the minute the person leaned their seat back I had no room and I'm a fairly small pElson. The seat in front of me was almost literally in my lap I couldn't open my tray on their seat back unless they sat up to eat"
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..."
Cons: "We were packed into the airplane like sardines!"
Pros: "Food was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "One of our seat back entertainment units did not work. The attendants tried to reset it twice, but it did not help."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
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."
Pros: "Great flight from tampa, everything was perfect"
Pros: "The airplane"
Cons: "Poor food"
Pros: "The crew were super helpful with my toddler and 5year old as I was traveling by myself. Everyone was very friendly and allowed me to board early as well as helped me when my toddler was crying to distract her. Service was fantastic! The plane was new and I really appreciated having entertainment I didn't have to pay extra for."
Pros: "A woman who spoke no English or French was seated next to me last minute with a baby who cried the whole flight. The woman hit me several times, waking me up, while trying to get the baby to stop crying. Talk about a red eye"

Cons: "sat on the tarmac for 3 hours because the pilot was late."
Cons: "Leave on time so passengers dont miss their connection flights My family of 7 people are stuck at the airport in Zurich with no connection flights until tomorrow to have to board on two additional flights Absolutely unacceptable Never again will we book flights with Delta."

Pros: "The food and the treatment"
Cons: "Crying baby"
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"
Cons: "We were on the tarmac for almost 2 hours. It's probably LaGuardia but the experience was very bad."

Cons: "Crew at Newark airport unpleasant and dismissive."
Pros: "Just fine."
Cons: "My eyes got so dry that I couldn't see very well for a few hours after landing, everything was hazy and glowing, like I had a film on my eyes. I've been on way longer flights before and I've never experienced this, it was scary."

Pros: "Seat comfort, easy of boarding."
Pros: "Hasn't happened. Still waiting."

Cons: "U cannot think of anything."
Cons: "The ticketing when purchasing a ticket from NEW YORK is very unclear and even though we wanted a JFK ticket, the NEW YORK search showed a ticket for NEWARK NJ so my step dad ended up going to the JFK airport - An elderly man who has trouble with English and no one was willing to help him to rebook his ticket. Not only that - the Lufthansa people VOIDED his entire ticket including the second leg because the agency wasn't picking up for a rebooking so the entire ticket cost was lost - $1200 - GONE! We couldn't even get him a one way ticket so he could use the return part of the one he bought. This is an absolute customer service disaster. This man lost all his money, he saves up all year to go see his family. That's an ugly way to take advantage of people."
Pros: "The convenience of an early arrival time in Frankfurt to catch another connecting flight to my final destination"
Cons: "Lufthansa was GROSSLY late to depart,for no apparent reason, causing me to miss my connection! Lufthansa then arranged for the cheapest and LATEST flight available as an alternate connection causing me to miss a very important family event.. Very disappointed.."
Cons: "The birding officer didn't inform me about the visa requirements to cross from Dusslouf to Vinna airport. This caused a big problem for me in the airport, where I: 1- Wasn't allowed to catch my flight ti Vinnea and this was both financial and time lost for me. 2- I was locked in Dussluff airport for more than 14 hours, I was threatened to be sent back to USA or any other country. This caused physiological damage for me, as I been treated like an animal 3- I was asked to pay for my new ticket ( Dussloff - Istanbul-Amman )"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled, I waited on the service center line for over 3 hours and in the end had to take a 8hr train ride in order to get to not completly miss my sailing trip. I arrivd to my boat 10hrs late when I was scheduled to take a 1.5hr flight and would have arrived 5 hours early."
Pros: "The crew came round with bottled water multiple times during the trip and even after taking off 15 min late, we still landed 30 mins early and the luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "The meal before landing consisted of nothing but the worst ham sandwich I've ever had the mis-fortune to be served: reminiscent of Bulgarian Airlines in the 80's."
Pros: "Big plane and there is a lower level for toilets that makes it easy for passengers to access and not be close to bathrooms"
Cons: "Movies choices were not current. Haven been on Delta and United, the choices on Lufthansa were not that good."

Cons: "Breakfast was just a roll. I would have preferred eggs."
Pros: "We arrived in London ahead of time. We go to Newark ahead of time"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Couldn't checkin online. Had to wait in line for over an hour."
Pros: "That the flight left on time and arrived early. The flight attendant was very friendly but knew his job well, and went the extra mile to be sure we were all comfortable."
Cons: "That the plane seemed noisy (from the back row at least). That the flight attendant did not help me find my seat. After travelling almost 24 hours I was tired and was trying to find the seat using the boarding gate number. I figured out I should have been in 9 D by the end of the flight. Instead I sat in the last row because it was empty and there was not a seat 26A. I almost missed this flight because my boarding pass said 26A and really it was 27A. I did look at the board. I did not compare the board to the ticket, and the numbers were so close my tired brain thought they matched. When it was time to board I checked at gate 26A and she sent me around the construction. I told the guy there (27A) I was looking for 26A and he said to go around the construction. I told him they sent me to him and he insisted I go around the construction. I would have missed the plane if someone else had not come up just then and said he was going to Richmond. At that point I told the guy I was too, and he checked my ticket. Some of the problem was my tired brain and you cannot fix that. Perhaps when someone tells your employee that they have already been sent around the construction the employee should just check the ticket instead of trying to send them back."
Pros: "we were treated like royalty"
Pros: "However the connecting time for MUC to HEL was bit more."
Pros: "Smooth and quick ride."
Cons: "There was a metal rod situation under the seat in front of me, which meant my bag wouldnt even fit, not to mention my legs. Also, I am not the biggest fan of flying and I started feeling sick at the end of the flight - kept it to myself but asked the flight attendant if I could have 2 sparkling waters and an orange juice (just to have it in front of me when I need it and not to bother anyone). I received what I asked for with an eye-roll and a shocked face. Just be nice - that's all."
Cons: "The crew seemed not to Americans, funny is that I'm not even one just speak English well, rude!"
Pros: "Nothing I recall"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats ever, back spasms had me getting up and down with essentially nowhere to go. Flight was 1 1/2 hours late, and that mattered because I was on the last leg of a trip home from Africa"
Pros: "i liked the borading line already lined up in the different groups"
Pros: "Do you know what it is like for a vegetarian gluten free person to order gluten free vegetarian and not get it? We confirmed by phone in advance and yet no such meal was provided. If Lufthansa does have such a meal they should say it at the time if reservations. Obviously someone didn't care enough."
Cons: "Do you know what it is like for a vegetarian gluten free person to order gluten free vegetarian and not get it? We confirmed by phone in advance and yet no such meal was provided. If Lufthansa does have such a meal they should say it at the time if reservations. Obviously someone didn't care enough."
Cons: "This was an old aircraft and had a 4 hour delay at Newark due to mechanical problems, causing a return to the gate, deplaning, and then getting back on board. I fly Lufthansa to AVOID this kind of mess. No one spoke the different languages of the passengers (specifically Italian) even though there were some thru-passengers from Munich to Bari. Poor communications during the process. Sometimes just COMMUNICATING WELL seems to make the problem smaller. Not well handled."
Pros: "The transfer from my previous flight to this flight worked like clock work but there was no time to spare."
Pros: "Liked all except the food"
Cons: "Did not like the food. I specifically selected vegeterian meal however was served vegan meal which I did not enjoy"
Cons: "My parents were traveling, they dont speak english and I verified with Austrian airlines that they would be assisted at the gates and that they had the correct visas for each airport they had a layover in. I was assured there would be no problems. Upon boarding they were not able to get on their flight. I have never had so many communication issues and frustrations in the middle of the night with an airline. disappointed."
Pros: "The crew was superb. Extended leg room seats had a lot of legroom. Good wines, decent dinner."
Cons: "Very strict carry on policies, much strictet than US carrieers, primarily by weight. Known traveler numbers (Glibal Entry) were not askrd at the time of online check in and ad a result, TSA Pre didnt show up on out boarding passes. Agent at the counter coulsnt dix it euther. Surprisingly, very disappointing breakfast."
Pros: "The Swiss Air staff provided water and nice sandwiches for us while we stood in line for hours and put us up in a very nice hotel for the night."
Cons: "My first flight with Austrain Airlines was 2 hours late in leaving, partly because they mixed our baggage up and had to have each of us leave the airplane to identify our baggage before getting back on again. Because of this, I missed my connecting flight in Zurich. Apparently hundreds of other passengers were in a similar situation, because I spent the next 6.5 hours standing in line to getting my new itinerary and hotel vouchers."
Pros: "It was a total nightmare all Austrian flights they put us on were canceled !!! We did not leave Vienna for another 7 h a total nightmare all planes had technically difuculties !! Austrian airlines had total chaos !!!"
Pros: "Friendly staff with great service"
Cons: "I didn't like that I paid for a ticket months ago and checked in my bags and then was told that there's no room the plain is full"
Pros: "Nice clean Airplane, good choice of entertainment. Food OK (except breakfast) but not great (coach class) Crew friendly, on time."
Cons: "The muffin for breakfast as the only choice at the end of the flight is a joke: superloaded with sugar, chewy, artificiall taste. Most of the passengers sent it back. This has not improved since my last flight with Austrian in March 2018. The one reponsible for ordering such junk should be punished by having to eat the muffin himself. Sorry!"
Pros: "The flight was short and got us there"
Cons: "This was not business service. The seats were uncomfortable, virtually no leg room."
Cons: "We ended up needing to check a bag. It cost 40 Euros which seemed high. We were sent to another line to pay then back to check in. Then our flight was 45 minutes delayed leaving. Fortunately the pilot got us in to Zurich only 20 Mon late. Just typical "never know what's gonna happen"."
Pros: "Direct connection"
Cons: "Meal is horrible"
Cons: "arogant staff, flight canceled, great difficulties to claim my money back"
Cons: "Flight significantly delayed so as to almost miss my onward flight to SFO."
Pros: "Really impressed with the Austrian air staff representatives. Especially the folks at the ticket/checkin counter"
Cons: "That I did not fly this airlines before. They will be first on my list from now on."
Cons: "My Swiss flight from Stuttgar via Zurich to JFK was cancelled before 24 hours without explaining the reason. They should explain the reason at least. I had to take an another flight and arrived at JFK after 6 hours from the original flight. My trip was totally messed up, so I was not happy at all."
Pros: "We had a friendly conversation about our travels. The lady explained the entire baggage process clearly. The security folks were equally friendly. Just a real nice experience at the Lugano airport."
Cons: "Not one thong!"
Cons: "A poor choice of video/film/documentaries. Limited and uninteresting."
Cons: "I can not afford first class tickets..."
Pros: "Helpful service, decent food."
Pros: "I will never travel with Austrian airlines again"
Cons: "My flight was cancel,then they transfer me to swees airlines they checked me in they took my luggage and then they told me I can't travel coz I can't make 2 stops inside the Europe. I have to wait 1 hour and 30 minutes to fine my bags . I went back and forth from terminal 1 and 4 many times.The changed my flight to turkey airlines and I wait 9 more hours at airport to check in again. Terrible experience ☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️"
Pros: "Well, at least they didn't overbook it like the horror the connector to LAX was"
Cons: "Waited longer to start boarding the plane than the flight took. There are 2 gates in Lugano "airport" and no plane or flight at the other gate. Shouldn't be this difficult. The inflight crew was nice and attentive for the little time we saw them but the ground crew never ev n bothered to make an announcement. Just had us sitting there like a heard of cattle."
Pros: "The plane arrived at destination ahead of schedule."
Cons: "€40 for a single 12 kg checked bag--that could have been gate checked? Seems excessive to this traveler."
Pros: "My wife And infant son we're flying out and when I got them there ticket I asked if they had any available seats with leg room and he said there was nothing available but the best he could do was aisle. When my wife n son went to board on the Stewart or stewardess told them that they are not sitting there and that they will be flying first class today. When my wife landed n told me I was extremely happy that they saw her with a baby and gave my wife n son that option to sit in first class then be tied up in economy and no so comfortable. I greatly appreciate the hospitality you have given my wife n son. Thank you Filip"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. We took off a bit late, but landed on time. Staff was responsive."
Cons: "Mediocre breakfast. Entertainment wasn't great."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The food and the boarding at Vienna airport"
Cons: "Although AU blamed late arrival of the plane from Russia, fact is that the plane was at least one hour at the dock before boarding and the AU team was just extremely slow to get boarding done. We were all invited 45 minutes before boarding to board, when apologies were already offered for the slight delay, which turned into 1.5 hour overall. Worst is the lack of communication during the 45 minute wait, for which I have little understanding seeing many older people clearly suffering."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "The food was very good! And the movies you could choose too."
Pros: "Best take off, Best Fight, Perfect Landing...!!!"

Cons: "Flight cancelled morning of the flight and our direct flight on Austrian Air turned into a flight on Lufthansa with a layover in Munich. Not pleased with their handling of the situation and their very blasé customer service"
Pros: "The coffee was excellent. It was like something from a fancy coffee shop, not a plane"
Cons: "Chicken w mashed potatoes plus potato salad? Too much potato in the dinner meal"
Cons: "Sarted 90 minutes late because there was no crew available for this flight. In the cabin we later learned that they had to keep their legal rest times. The issue I have, why was there no information as soon as this issue became clear ... lets say the evening before the flight?Why make everyone arrive at 5am at an airport if you know 12 hours earlier there will be a 90 minute delay?"
Cons: "Flight was canceled and I was rebooked to another airline. Terrible customer service too, polite and sorry, but only repeating their statements over and over again."
Pros: "We appreciated the upgrade to business as we are frequent travellers on Austrian; the flight attendants were very patient and kind with our children"
Cons: "Food too salty; would've liked to see English subtitles for German language movies"
Cons: "I can't believe they charge extra to reserve a seat. Just charge an honest flight."
Pros: "complimentary chocolates are excellent"
Cons: "my luggage was one day late"
Pros: "I like the service,was great, flight was smooth,great team!!!"
Cons: "I was not let in the flight as all the seats were taken."
Pros: "The food was exceptional for any airline I am a world traveler and the food was bar none the best airline food I have ever experienced!"
Cons: "Service was excellent! I will recommend both Austrian Air and Kayak"
Pros: "the best flight i ever had"
Cons: "Boarding bad. Food bad. Comfort bad"
Pros: "Cleanliness, efficient boarding, punctuality - flight was actually more than an hour early."
Cons: "Food was 'ok' - always the same though: "Chucken or pasta?" Had window seat and froze my left side..."
Pros: "It was the first flight with Austrian. A great service, food, on-time departures. Next trip i'll look for Austrian flight"
Pros: "We left and arrived safely"
Cons: "The crew always seems to be incredibly rude and always bothered by any reasonable request..... This is my 8th time flying with this airline and it's always the same. For the money I pay I shouldn't have to feel like they are doing me a favor"
Pros: "The Crew was very nice"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked, left almost 50 minutes late, and no food/drinks .."
Pros: "The fact that I was flying through Europe and not Middle East or other part of the world"
Cons: "The crew is always rude and arrogant. You ask for more than three drinks they start looking at you like you drained their bar. Comfort level for an 8hr flight feels like you're locked in a child seat. The food is prison quality or public high school cafeteria quality. I'd rather just take a longer flight through Turkey than ever fly with these aristocrats again!"
Pros: "The lighting of the interior of the plane was beautiful- very friendly, great service. Even saw volcanoes in the early morning during take-off"
Cons: "My tv screen wasn't working even after an attendant restarted it for me :( other than that everything was fine!"
Pros: "I think someone from iceland air needs to review my above reviews and make some changes"
Pros: "On-time departures, smooth connections. The TV screen at my seat didn't work but the flight was not full so the crew let me move to a seat where the TV worked. Two checked bags included in the regular Economy fare is always a plus!"
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "We didn't get the meal"
Pros: "Accurate time, good spaces, fair fees"
Cons: "One time drinks in a long trip not enough for passengers"
Cons: "My seat was too small. I was next to the entrance with no screening between me and the boarding passengers. The flight attendant closed the door on my leg because I had no room to move it. Anyone waiting to use the bathroom had to stand in front of me."
Cons: "That no snacks were served free of charge. Moreover, the choice available on payment was very limited and expensive."
Pros: "Fast and effective"
Pros: "Flights arrived on time"
Cons: "Lousy crew at checkin gate, and on plane, they try and charge you for everything"
Cons: "More depth to seats, room to straighten shoulders while seated (and I’m small), breakfast on overseas flight. Hard to hear announcements over plane noise."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. I got some sleep on this red eye flight, surprisingly."
Pros: "Only use this airline if you are just flying to Iceland or taking advantage of their stopover in Iceland option. Otherwise choose another airline."
Cons: "Serve food like most transatlantic carriers-bringing Subway Sandwiches or paying large fees for Pringle’s potato chips is beyond greedy for an airline these days. If Icelandair is that desperate for profit it makes one wonder where else they cut corners."
Cons: "I had to pay for my check in bag extra, which was not clear in the booking process. Very misleading!"
Pros: "the seat was comfortable"
Cons: "the food"
Pros: "Was ok. Got us there but everything is a la carte"
Cons: "Was ok. Newark is awful."
Cons: "Economy seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Iceairline has been delayed from Newark , can’t catch the connection flight from Reykjavik to Frankfurt at same day , ponsdond to next day flight ."
Pros: "Very cheap flight"
Cons: "No in-flight food, just water. Plane was very small. I’m almost 7 ft tall and asked if I could swap for an exit row, no dice. So I felt like a human-accordion between two rows of seat for the entire flight. I got what I paid for. Cheap airfare= discomfort."
Pros: "Water bottle"
Cons: "Delay that made me miss my connecting flight, which was then rescheduled a full 24 hours later. This is cutting into my vacation and the time to see my family."
Pros: "I liked the movie options."
Cons: "I don’t understand how you can be on a flight for 5 hrs and all they give you is water!!!! The seats were beyond painful and the space was so cramped. There was no sleeping on this red eye. Plane noise was extremely loud and we were not by the wing. Our flight was delayed and they didn’t say a thing until it was past the time to board!!! Really?!? No apologies for it either. This is the worst flight I have ever been on. Dread getting in this flight to go home."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I needed to cancel my trip due to a work event being postponed. I tried to reach IcelandAir to do this as I needed proof of cancelled flights so I could submit to my trip cancellation insurance to get ticket price refunded. I tried contacting IcelandAir for well over 3 weeks, calling (sometimes on hold for hours before finally being cut off), numerous emails (that went unanswered), messaging on FB, I even opened a Twitter account to try to reach them through there- NOTHING! The flight was supposed to be taken last night- I received a FB message this MORNING apologizing for the delay, and informing me I needed to contact another party- I'm beyond blown away at the lack of professionalism and inability to answer a simple request, which was to cancel my flights BEFORE they were scheduled to depart."
Pros: "It was vegetarian. Very tasty, although the lentils were a little dry."
Cons: "The salad had a bit of grit in it! I think it was probably the lettuce that wasn’t thoroughly washed. Otherwise fine."
Cons: "The pilots was great, but the baggage was partially lost and we had to wait an hour while they found the rest and loaded it. For that hour, the airport positioned another jet with its engines firing into our air intake, so we spent the whole time coughing in fuel fumes. The crew had forgotten to put blankets out for about 1/3 of the plane on the overnight flight and didn't have enough to go around when the mistake was pointed out to them. Also, the check-in kiosks and web check-in were both faulty, so the desk assistants were overworked. Overall, the service was well intentioned, but inept. Not worth the cheaper ticket price."
Pros: "The free onboard entertainment was a welcome surpsise"
Cons: "The airline was late and every passenger missed their connecting flights. I had to wait another day and now that flight is delayed"
Pros: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable, the service was slow, both my flights (Newark to Reykjavik and Reykjavik to Heathrow) were delayed and the flight staff was incredibly poor about providing us updates not to mention any accuracy with the timing. Overall, my experience with Icelandic Air was so bad I will never fly with them again."
Cons: "We had an 8 hour delay and only learned of the delay when we arrived at the airport."
Cons: "Didn’t exist"
Pros: "The movie selection was good, but u had to buy the headphone wich was disappointing"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, very uncomfortable compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Mobile phone chargers"
Cons: "No food, seats uncomfortable and flight 3 hrs delayed"
Cons: "Ridiculous delay made me lose my connection. Few alternative options to be rebooked."
Cons: "I recently was scheduled to fly out of Newark, NJ on Friday 10/20 but unfortunately there was an issue with my documentation. The airline support staff mistakenly tagged me as a no show however, I had been in contact with both the 3rd party vendor and the airline explaining my situation. I watched my 3 friends board a plan with no idea if I would get to go to Iceland, it was the weekend and no embassy was open to address what may have happened with my documentation. No one could tell me if I would be able to get on another flight and join my friends nor if I would be refunded, I was simply put on a no show list and bounced between several customer support representatives. I am very upset that the situation occurred"
Pros: "The connecting flights (had mostly co-passengers all hurrying to the next flight) waited for us - thank you!"
Cons: "with that many flights coming through this airport, I would have expected better organization to shuffle us through. While the voice announcements were frequent and clear, the signage was less so. Food at airport is expensive."
Pros: "Friendly staff and great seat recline."
Cons: "No food."
Pros: "Flight was on time! Very helpful and courteous at the counter in assigning our seats!"
Cons: "Seats in Emergency Exit can't recline!"
Pros: "Personal tvs"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "The choice of food to buy onboard is quiet limited for a long flight and the choice of movies is from the 90's"
Pros: "All passengers made it."
Cons: "Significant amount of bags never made it to ZRH"
Pros: "This was fantastic! The crew was very professional and friendly."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and pleasant. Boarding was efficient. The ablility to charge phone, ipad through usb."
Cons: "The seats were cramped. My seat was changed from what I selected and I seated in a middle seat between two very large men and was unable to move during the flight. It was very warm. No food service in the am!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, I slept the whole way."
Cons: "Departed overy 2 hours late and missed our connection. Rather than a schedited 1pm arrival in Switzerland, we are to arrive at 9:35pm. We are not happy with our flight or Iceland Air!"
Cons: "not enough liquids served"
Pros: "The seating is certainly bigger than economy domestic flights."
Cons: "No snacks given"
Pros: "nothing to like"
Cons: "No food included at all, not even a pack of nuts, Iceland airport was crowded, lots of construction, disorganized."
