Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Entertainment and food timings are odd."
Cons: "Comfort"
Pros: "In-flight treatment"
Cons: "The seat"
Pros: "Doha to hyd was good. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Even after online checkin. Just to drop the bags it took 1 hr. The thin old black lady at the baggage drop off counter was very partial in treating people. She allowed a black male take 27.8 kgs but asked us to adjust our bags when we had 23 kgs. Also if the passenger is allowed to carry a laptop bag, according to her training and theory she only knows 1 shape and does not recognize a back pack which has only the laptop. I travelled several times in Qatar, but never had this kind of experience."
Pros: "The crew service"
Cons: "The cost of internet access"
Cons: "Service is great and the plane flew so smooth"
Cons: "THere was no wifi"
Pros: "Check-in was a breeze; considering this being an internationaly travel, baggage check-in process was fast and easy. Was in and out in about 5 minutes. Goodie bag was a good idea; the goodie bag contains an eye mask, mini tooth brush, paste, hand cream, etc. These all were great idea and definitely helpful. However this is ruined by the tooth paste. It was a tiny tooth paste, fair enough but the opening is sealed tight w/o a way to easily pry open. This was a total bad idea of packaging. Flight tips were also good idea and informational."
Cons: "Atlanta to Doha was about 14 hours flight. The seats were cramped and narrow (no side support) Seat cushion has been stripped down to bare minimum, so effectively you may not feel much of a cushion. Cramped legroom Seats felt like junk and I had started having leg cramps after few hours. This so disappointing for a premier airline like Qatar. Overall a very uncomfortable ride."
Pros: "the trip coming and going from Kuwait was very pleasant"
Pros: "Flight was on time and departed as scheduled. Flight was comfortable and seats were decent. Would have liked a little bigger seats and more legroom in the economy seats"

Pros: "Crew and flight comfort were fine until the flight got canceled after sitting on the plane for over an hour"

Cons: "Limited leg room for a big guy like me. My cancelled flight from Boston to phx was too long of a layover"
Pros: "I didn’t die in a plane crash"
Cons: "We were offered no form of refund, miles, or anything after a 6 hour layover. We paid for a hotel for the night (we should have landed at 1am) and instead landed at 7am, so we had to completely skip our hotel and had no sleep for the wedding the next day. We’re out of $120 for the hotel we already paid for and the staff gave us no help in form of compensation."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Screens (for in-flight entertainment) kept freezing, not as much legroom as previous flights (BKK-DXB, DXB-SIN, NBO-DXB) on Emirates"

Cons: "A little too directive, exemplified by ordering people to pull down their window shades, for my Americans can mentality. Otherwise great!"
Cons: "I like it"
Cons: "Emirates did not allow us to select the food preference as we had booked through a third party. They literally starved us for 14 hours as we r vegetarian and could not eat meat laden foods."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Crew was surly, never smiled. They all seemed very tired and intolerant of customers. Service was minimal. Food was tasteless and salty. Water was offered only once on a 14 hour flight. Aircraft was very cramped- no room to walk in the aisle without hitting the aisle seats. Overhead compartments were crammed full and it was very difficult to find space for a small bag."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They recently started charging unnecessary excess fees for overweight. I traveled from Seattle to Hyderabad via Dubai. I carried my cabin bag from Seattle with weight of 9kgs and purchased few duty free items of 2kgs(2 liquor bottles and1 dates box). They have asked me to pay $150 for excess weight. One passenger traveled from Houston with a bag of 11kgs. Items include 1 laptop documents and tablet. She didn't shop in Dubai. She was allowed in Houston but was charged $100 in Dubai for same weight."
Pros: "The service we received from crew was excellent"
Cons: "Actually we enjoyed everything about emirates"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Tiny seats. No leg room. No storage under the seats."
Cons: "Booked an aisle seat in early April. Emirates reassigned me a middle seat, this on a 13.25 hour flight! Refused to rebook me back to original even though I showed them my original booking. Never Emirates again! Ever."

Cons: "Less legroom than A380 which became slightly claustrophobic at times. Meal choice limited they ran out of one choice fairly early in the service"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, awesome entertainment and food!"
Cons: "Only 7kg for a carry on bag is pretty tight."
Pros: "The food was better than others and beverages were served often. In flight entertainment options were impressive."

Cons: "Need Indian tea"
Pros: "As comfortable as one could hope for a long haul economy seat."
Cons: "I was expecting a ve"
Pros: "The staff was amazing, not perfect, but still very good. Even on the long leg from Seattle to Dubai after 14 hours they we're smiling, helpful and attentive."
Cons: "The only thing I could say was not up to par was the food on both flights. The long legs food got me sick, and yes I was the only one so could have just been me, and the second the "sandwich" it seems they were not even trying."
Pros: "All went fine"
Pros: "Very professional and very good in customer care"
Pros: "I made it to my final destination safely"
Cons: "Not much overhead space for your bags, so we have to keep them at the bottom of our feet....i was travelling with a senior on a wheelchair and the idea of her going up and down the stairs into and out of the airplane wasnt so pleasing...the cabin crew could be easily mistaken for any other passenger becase of dress code..."
Pros: "Hospitable staff ,friendly and humble. Wifi availability .Great on board atmosphere and spacious and comfortable seats. Entertainment was the Bob. Ambience was classic. I loved your choice of wine."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "flight was empty so everyone had the chance to experience better treatment from flight attendants."
Cons: "no complaits"
Cons: "Be sure to take your own water bottle with you on this long 14 hour flight. Both directions it seemed that the company approach to beverages was to serve as little as possible, perhaps to keep people out of the bathrooms. But the cabin air was so dry I could barely swallow at times one way drinking only what was provided, but the other way I noticed that my jet lag was greatly reduced when I carried and consumed an extra liter or two above what was provided. At one gate the security crew asked me to dump my water, but I had a small empty bottle with me that I could fill up at the spigot near the bathroom on the plane as needed."
Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "i would like to be upgraded I first class (for free)! :)"
Pros: "I loved the hospitality and the attention to detail throughout the flight."
Pros: "I was ready for a tortuous 14+ hour flight since I had a center seat in the very last row... But, I was pleasantly surprised. Enjoyed tracking the trip on the entertainment center and viewing outside on the cameras."
Cons: "Navigating the entertainment system was a bit complicated and the touch screen didn't respond well to my touch."
Pros: "Good overall experience."
Pros: "Great menus, get you all excited. Variety, interesting dishes. Generous with wine and drinks."
Cons: "It's... airline food. Doesn't live up to the promise of the menu. Cooked too long ago, reheated too much, ... I understand that they have constraints, that's what you get when you want to eat in the sky. But I have eaten better food in airplanes, in economy."

Cons: "Food wasn't that great. They ran out of choices"
Cons: "Complimentary varieties can be increased"

Cons: "Everything about Jet Blue is amazing."
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "How about letting my seat tilt back a bit. Back was not happy."
Cons: "Flight turned around halfway and returned to origin airport. A full explanation was never given."
Pros: "I was to tired to even flight more than 9 hours in the airport was not in my plans"
Cons: "If they would of speak with honest and not tell us it was not pilot available that was very unprofessional and unacceptable"
Pros: "Someone greeted me ..."

Pros: "The flight being over"
Cons: "Having to sit next to a non-working flight attendant who decided to fly sick, wouldn't even use a tissue, sneezed and coughed over and over and literally sniffled every few seconds for the entire flight. Also, I really enjoyed paying extra for priority boarding and a seat in the front row and ending up with my suitcase right rows back because of inconsiderate people."
Cons: "one hour delay"
Pros: "The plane looked brand new Everything thing worked TV WFi Excellent staff. Could not believe I got all this for JetBlue Basic fare."
Cons: "Always the boarding process. Nothing to do with JetBlue staff they were excellent Passengers need to understand and adhere to carry on restrictions"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane was old it had no WiFi or electricity The ac was turned up to maximum Jet blue always plaqued with delays"

Cons: "I have no complaint."
Pros: "Swift boarding procesx"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Loved all the available dedicated JetBlue staff available to answer questions. Have not flown JetBlue often but heard many great things."
Cons: "Weather delay which is out of JetBlue’s control but once we landed (6 hours later) we sat on the runway for an additional hour because our gate had a disable airplane occupying it. I think JetBlue could have done a better job ensuring a back up gate was available or giving their passenger updates on the situation."
Cons: "Inadequate space for carry on. Flight delayed 3 times"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and easy."
Cons: "The plane was old and has some smell."

Cons: "None"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice. The price (economy nonstop RT to Boston from Seattle) was excellent."
Cons: "JetBlue economy seats were uncomfortable or me on a long (almost six hour) flight. I had to get up and stand in back twice, as my rear end was so sore. Both flights were delayed 45 minutes to an hour. As this is my first time flying JetBlue, it didn't leave good impression."
Pros: "Overall I do Love JetBlue...."
Cons: "In Group D...finally getting on...just to find the entire rear overheads completely full...how is that possible if everyone is supposed to be storing ONE carry on...completely not fair..now I have to shove both my bag & my personal item under the seat in front of me in an already tight space, I wouldn't need Even More Space--not a tall or overweight person."
Pros: "The legroom was nice and overall we took off and landed safely which is the most important."
Cons: "-the flight was rescheduled more than 3 times, it was very inconvenient and annoying. -when we were boarding were told the flight would leave in about 20 minutes, however we had to wait more than 40 minutes; again extremely annoying. -once we took off we were forced to return supposedly due to a sick passenger, which is if true is not really the airlines fault but again very annoying."

Cons: "Out of order and dirty restroom"
Pros: "Flight attendants are fantastic Free snacks and drinks Roomy and comfortable seats TV's Wifi Very smooth landing"
Cons: "Boarding Process - Jet Blue changed how they load their planes back in October. They used to have the best system; load from the back of the plane to the front. Now they load outside in (window seats, middle and then aisle). This causes a lot of delays."

Cons: "Delayed flight, broken TV and terrible boarding process. Frozen toilet chemicals."

Cons: "Not much movie choice"
Pros: "The people were extremely solicitous. My husband needed a wheel chair....Before we arrived they had already switched our seats to the front of the plane so we were able to get out without waiting in a long line. Our seats were originally in the very back of the plane. I loved that they ask for bags to be checked under.....so we do not have to lift them up.........Thank you. The pilot came out and introduced himself before we began our flight. Had a few funny things to say. IT was great!"
Pros: "Quick and on time"
Cons: "My seat did not go back, and sitting upright the entire flight was very comfortable. When I asked the fight attendant about the seat, he said seats do not go back forward of the exit row. Had I known this, I would not have booked my seat. This information was not made clear to me when I arranged the flight. I am looking to book another flight R/T from Boston to NYC and would appreciate compensation for this upcoming flight."
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "Lots of legroom on the return flight, even though I didn't upgrade or get seated in an exit row."
Cons: "Nothing, everything was fine."
Pros: "Great trip."
Pros: "Very nice and smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Updates via email about delays. Good communication helps."

Pros: "I like everything about it."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "The sprite?"
Cons: "The staff was rude and not helpful whatsoever. I was traveling with a one year old and the lady at the gate was very obviously annoyed when I asked her to check my stroller. She said "Ugh I'm just so busy I cant deal with this right now.""
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Luggage lost, unhelpful Kigali Helpdesk. Johannesburg VERY helpful"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Customer services"
Cons: "Time was never kept. we had a delay in LGW for more than 2 hrs. I had a 17hrs layover in Kigali. I was not aware that i would not be booked in a hotel to rest. I had to make my own arrangements. And another extended delay out of Kigali to Nairobi"
Pros: "New plane, fresh feel. Food is ok."
Cons: "Airline feels basic and no frills."
Pros: "Crew members are extremely polite and friendly. Flight was delayed leaving Kigali captain spoke to each passenger and apologise - great professionalism."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."
Pros: "Took the newly opened route between Cape Town and Harare. Was a great experience. Thanks to RwandAir it is easier and cheaper to fly directly between these African cities. Lots of potential on the route. RwandAir really opening up business and leisure opportunities much needed in these areas. Nice to avoid Tambo airport."
Cons: "Both flights were slightly delayed (which happens), information about the delay could be better at Harare airport. But no biggy."
Pros: "Rwanda Air is the best"
Cons: "Landing at Kigali was bit rough"
Pros: "The crew members are very polite and professional"
Cons: "The food is not very nice, the drink is don’t taste so great either . The airline seats are too small"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "I think that I appreciated all the details during the trip. As I get my kayak app in my IPhone, i firstly received a notice that the check in started.... At each step, I could see the time discounted through my phone"
Cons: "As I said, I liked everything. From the departure to the landing"
Cons: "My luggage was broken into and stolen. They sawed off the zip on my suitcase and broke the handle. Stole a number of personal items including a belt, perfume, t-shirts and cash."
Pros: "The planes and shuttles are nice and clean, and the staff are pleasant. I had a long layover in Kigali and the airline gave me accommodation and a food voucher (totally unexpected). Will definitely fly RwandAir again."
Pros: "Food and free WiFi. Ample seating space."
Cons: "Rerouted through Dar-es-Salaam at last minute rather than being a direct flight as scheduled"
Pros: "They respect the timing"
Cons: "The luggage escalator is not working and you have to carry it from one point to another..."
Pros: "That there were not many people on the second leg and that the plane was clean"
Cons: "The fact that we had an itinerary change with an extra stop (unannounced until 15 minutes before I boarded the flight) that delayed us by 1+ hours, that we were delayed from leaving Kigali by 1.5 hours and none of the crew could explain what was going on, that the rwandair staff was rude. I mean... It's Rwanda so I didn't expect much customer service (they are generally particularly bad by African, European, Asian or American standards) and I definitely wasn't impressed"
Pros: "Timeliness, Service, Cleanliness Comfort"
Pros: "The food initially given at 2:00am IST was really good and so I didn't even have to wake up again to eat."
Cons: "The breakfast was not as appetizing."
Pros: "The aircraft was nice, clean and seemed new. The staff was very professional, immaculate uniforms and appearance. Great attention to detail. We traveled from US - Nairobi - Kigali - Johannesburg, changing planes four times. These were some of the nicest planes. I felt very safe traveling this airline."
Cons: "Too much bread in the meals. The meals were adequate in quantity but each meal came with two rolls, which was excessive. Just a note - for the boarding area in the airport. Please have restroom facilities in boarding area, past security so you can use the restroom without having to go through security again. Also, if food and beverage is available for sale in the boarding area more passengers would make purchases."
Pros: "The Airbus. The crew's simple commitment to excellent service"
Cons: "The unconventional check in closure 90mins to departure even when the plan arrived late"
Pros: "Nice blankets. Good service."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great and juices were very sweet (tasted like sugar water)"
Pros: "Good and clean planes, good service"
Cons: "We had couple of ours delay and not well communicated"
Pros: "Nice comfortable new planes."
Cons: "There wasn't much not to like."
Cons: "We incurred significant extra costs (visas, taxi, hotel costs) because Rwandair changed our flights around from what we had originally booked, with no compensation or help navigating the visa process."
Cons: "The food options were unclear- they didn't announce what was in each meal, aside from the type of meat. It wouldn't kill you to have a vegetarian option on hand either, especially since your website doesn't work."
Pros: "Landing was very smooth. I got window seat as requested."
Cons: "My bags were mistagged and almost sent to Lagos instead of Nairobi. The agent noticed the error after the second bag was tagged. He went to search for my first bag that already went down the ramp. Although I gave him the exact description of the bag (purple hard case), he retagged the wrong one (red soft case). Good thing he took a photo. Third try was the charm but shouldn't have happened in the first place. Agents need to be more diligent with where they are sending bags and to double- and triple-check before he luggage is sent down the ramps."

Pros: "Information during flight"
Cons: "No TV or programmes to entertain slong"

Cons: "Food is almost inedible"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Time management"
Pros: "Plane was clean and very comfortable, staff was courteous. Surprisingly good food for a short flight"
Cons: "Changed flight times without informing passengers on BOTH of the legs. Staff were polite, but were more interested in following the rules than helping people get on their flights. No customer feedback forms were available"
Cons: "No entertnainment"
Pros: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."
Pros: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "Both flights were terribly delayed and while the crew apologized we sat on a small plane. In Entebbe the reason was they overbooked the flight. So leave those people behind to take the next flight, don't keep us prisoners on a plane for hours... Stupid management decisions."
Pros: "RwandAir flew us to Nairobi instead and I thought that was good of them to make that change for us. The above evaluation pertains to the flight to Nairobi."
Pros: "The Rwandair plane was modern and clean. Kigali airport has a nice cafe, and check-in was efficient. The plane left a few minutes early."
Cons: "Check-in closes one hour before your flight. Economy class: Food was a clingwrapped sandwich. The attendant gave me two bottles of a good South African wine. Security has gotten quite uptight at Kigali airport. They now stop your cab a couple hundred meters short of the airport, and have a dog check the vehicle. You have to pass through another security checkpoint at the entry to the airport building, and a third security into the boarding area. The final security check even takes away any empty bottles you have. And don't take any fingernail scissors in your handcarry, even if they have blunt points. You may have an hour or more wait in preboarding, and without water or bathroom excess. So takke care of these needs in advance."
Pros: "Clean planes"
Cons: "Ground crew at NBO - Rwanda Air has Kenyan Airways do the work in the terminals. Bad idea!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "This airline is an operational nightmare. I purchased a ticket with a connection, and the second flight being a codeshare, two months in advance. On the day of travel, I checked in, checked two bags, and headed to the gate. An hour before the flight, a Rwandaair agent approached me to inform me that they were no longer code sharing with precision air, the second flight. Chaos ensued, my bags got lost, I got stuck in Nairobi, etc. in Nairobi, one of the Kenya airways agents literally said to me 'avoid Rwandaair and precision airlines - they are both airlines that do not follow any regulations, and not just operational, but safety as well.'"
Pros: "The flight times were perfect and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The food was just ok"
Pros: "Everything was excellent, service, cabin, food."
Cons: "First announcement cockpit was just before landing. Would have liked some information before takeoff and once in the air"
Pros: "Very professional - gave us a good meal - although flight was a little more than an hour. Will recommend to friends"
Cons: "Service & good landing"
Cons: "The arrival time was stated as 1:40pm but in reality it was a 1:10pm arrival so I had arranged my driver to collect at the wrong time and he wasn't there when I arrived."
Pros: "They have great food, amazing crew, great customer care.."
Cons: "No entertainment, some few crew members has a bit of an attitude."
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: "Nothing Everything was excellent"
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: "I was in business class and it was great. The staff the food and the seats were awesome."
Cons: "I booked through Kayak and when I arrived at the airport Swiss air had no seat available for me. I was forced to upgrade to ensure a seat."
Pros: "Swiss lost two checked bags for which we paid a supplement - while they’ve sent emails about them we still have yet to see the bags 36 hours later."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "No kiosk at airport. Even tho you have a etickst they make you print one. Which means a huge line. Whats the point"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Entertainment and dinner food"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seat confort"
Pros: "Service was fine, on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "* Online checkin failed * Sit selection was not honoured * Sit was uncomfortable * Was last to receive luggage after landing, even though they had a "business - priority" sticker on them"
Pros: "The staff was nice"
Cons: "The seats were very small, the cusion was worn, the entertainment screen did not work, nor did my recline function on seat."
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: "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: "Ground Staff (your frontline) were welcoming The seats are most comfortable, the cabin immaculately clean, the Staff polite, helpful and efficient. The flight was smooth including takeoff and Landing Thank You All"
Cons: "Have no complaints."
Pros: "The gate agents, crew, and food."
Cons: "Entertainment monitor kept stopping, then going, fast forward, then fast reverse. Watched a 1 hour 10 minute movie that took 2 hours 40 minutes to view. I am over 200 cm in height, the passenger in front of me was 163 cm with seat all the way back while sitting on the edge of her seat playing games. The monitor I was watching was about 14 cm from my face. I never put my seat back, but I sure as hell will now. This flight was over seven hours, that is to long to be contorted."
Cons: "2 hours delay from jfk miss flight from Zürich to krakow wait 7hours next flight get in krakow in11clock baggage missing I’m not happy"
Pros: "Everything was excellent from boarding with almost no delays to the service on board. We would definitely travel with swiss again"
Pros: "Good food for economy , good selection of new releases movies included , small seat and leg room but not terrible"
Cons: "Made us check our carry on bag because it was too heavy and was told to get it from baggage claim on our connecting flight for it to never show up then waited in line for missing luggage for them to tell us they transferred it and would be waiting at the final destination"
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."
Cons: "Always when one sits in the back of the plane, they run out of one meal. The food was ok. Not sure why they serve ice cream and cheese as a snack."
Pros: "On board service"
Cons: "the teminal 4 sevice at JFK: the huge line before the security looked like a complete misorder and for no reason lingest lined I ever saw in airports instead of spliting the crowd in shorted lines to every security crew without maku=ing people to pass long lines with the hand luggage and children, it was really and absolutelu=y far from any comfort."
Pros: "The Crew is amazing and the plane is comfortable."
Cons: "The food changed and is not really swiss anymore (we got an Oreo for dessert and Cheddar for cheese). My luggage arrived broken in Geneva, which might not be Swiss' fault, but a big problem when you have two weeks of travel ahead."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "If I were a small person I would have been almost comfortable the seats were so narrow with no leg room so that trying to find a place for myself was laughable, unfortunately not the funny laughable. There is not a chance that I will ever again book an international flight on Swiss. I hope you share this with the airline."
Pros: "It reminds me of school dinners"
Cons: "Bland, over cooked No thought into the presentation or flavour"
Pros: "The next best thing to the hard-working and kind crew was the lighting design. Meals were OK, and I was delighted that the vegan meals I ordered for my travel companion were right there as ordered. Not a common occurrence of late, I’m afraid, so I congratulate Swiss one getting this one right."
Cons: "Legroom is non-existent. This was by far the most uncomfortable aircraft I have ever flown on, with the possible exception of an Ilyushin 62 operated by Tarom in 1983. I felt bad for the man in front of me, with my knees in his back. That is, until he reclined his seat and put my video screen in my face. Not much to watch anyway, but it was impossible to lean forward at all. Boarding at JFK was rather chaotic."
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: "Tons of movies, excellent food, clean planes, friendly crew. Flying was a pleasure."
Cons: "Checking in is very inefficient at JFK. There was only one (super slow) teller checking all of economy, while three people checked in business class. There were no automated check-in kiosks. you can imagine the chaos. Unfriendly tellers too. On the way back I was selected for a strip search when I checked in at the gate. So was my husband, but he wasn't told of this until he Was boarding and his ticket beeped on scanning. There was no room for our carry on, because we boarded so late. Annoying."
Cons: "The seats in economy were unbearable for anyone of normal size, as I am. It is not possible to sit in even bare comfort in them. Obviously I'll have to find another airline or factor a size upgrade into the price"
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: "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: "If you put the seats this close together, with the amount of recline. Once one person on the fligh reclines their seat it forces everyone else to do so. You can't eat if the person in front of you reclines!"
Pros: "The crew was very professional and friendly. That is a great thing since it's a long flight. Very well prepared! Entertainment was nice lots of options there to keep you busy."
Cons: "I wasn't pleased with their meals so that it's important when it's a long flight, and not many choices available."
Cons: "I had a lot damaged luggage!"
Pros: "Service. The food was good. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "As a person of color I didn't feel that I received the same warm welcome from some of the attendants. For example the expression on their faces were blank when I said hello. I picked up my food tray and gave it to the attendants very politely. She just took it out of my hand. When the passenger next to me did the same she said thank you very politely. He was Caucasian. Some were very friendly and polite."
Cons: "I could notice The crew was really attentive and took good Care of passengers Who speak german or were from Swizertland, meanwhile with The rest of The passengers they were not really nice at all."
Pros: "The steward was friendly"
Cons: "1) Assigned seat but was allowed to change seat 24 hours before online check in but at baggage drop off at airport, I was shocked that Swiss Air did not abide to our selected seats changed and gave us the initial seat assigned. 2) At airport check in, none of the ground crew able to gave us good explanation or assistance. 3) Enterainment has to reboot twice. Audio selection cannot be play. No USB port for charging phone."
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."
Pros: "I like that Coke Zero was available."
Cons: "My chair was stuck in the fully reclined position for a good portion of the flight and my wife's chair was constantly being knocked into by the passenger behind her because his seat was too short for him. When the seat in front of me was reclined, the screen was only a few inches from my face. There was a loud, obnoxious passenger next to me who almost got into a fistfight with another passenger until the stewardess came to calm him down."
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: "that they had new movies"
Cons: "the leg space is non existent, few of the seat dont even recline meanwhile some recline more than normal"
Pros: "No delays at all. Couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "Screaming babies."
Pros: "All but the service"
Cons: "Flight attendants seem confused. Service was below par. Took forever to clean food service. Business class had the lights off after dinner at least 40 minutes before we did in Economy. Couldn't get water I requested for a long time."
Pros: "Just safety."
Cons: "- the crew was unpleasant and rude, which came as a surprise because usually Swiss crew is nice - the seat was unrandomly small, awfully for someone who is 5'11 - the food was so average"
