Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Quick and courteous service"
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"
Pros: "Crew were courteous and competent."
Cons: "No leg room; no head room when seat in front was reclined. Very uncomfortable. Food was also mediocre; expected better from a non-US carrier."
Cons: "Instead of Florence due to weather the flight landed in Pisa. We wanted for an hour and no Swiss representative came out. We had to pay for our transportation from Pisa to Florence. How do we get the reimbursement. I had requested our hotel at Florene to pick us up at Florence airport so they charged us too. Very poor service by Swiss air and it's not the first time that it has happened."
Cons: "All was great!"
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"
Cons: "Entertainment didn’t work, the crew did nothing to help. The plane was hot and stuffy. My luggage is lost."

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: "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."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Friendly crew and professional."
Cons: "I ordered vegan food, no meat , dairy free. On my trip from Boston to Zurich I received vegan food. On my way fro Zurich to Belgrade I was told” sorry we do not have any vegan food, “ Also, I was charged $60 for my check in one bag,. Not expectable."
Pros: "We had a turbulent trip but our pilots were very competent and got us to Zuroch safely. Bathroom was pretty clean."
Cons: "The plane was an older model and very outdated. The flight attendants gave us a choice between chicken or vegetarian pasta. I chose chicken, but it was actually beef. The salad was literally iceberg lettuce and a slice of cucumber. Overall, the meal was one of the lowest quality I've ever had in am airline. The outdated onboard entertainment system was annoying to operate and it was impossible to even see the screen when the person ahead leaned back."

Cons: "NO legroom on the Zurich to Dusseldorf flight."
Cons: "The temperature on this overnight flight was sweltering Legroom was poor"

Crappy in-flight entertainment with non-intuitive controls. Poor air conditioning. I felt like I was stuffed in a cage for 7 hours. Way worse than United domestic."
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: "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: "Staff and flight was really great. Everything went smoothly and on schedule. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The seating was almost unbearable. So small and cramped. Arm rest didn’t go all the way up so very hard to cuddle with my seat mate (my daughter). I couldn’t even put my arms by my side without pushing my seat neighbors off. Seat in front of me was in my lap. Hard to get out of seat to use restroom. Way to tight. Long flight from Boston to Zurich was so hard to bear. I understand making money...but this is ridiculous!!"
Pros: "I thought the attendants were nice and that it was an easy, relaxing flight."
Pros: "On time; everyone friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Everything !"
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight kept time. Safe trip. Thank you."
Cons: "Entertainment failed on both my seat and the lady next to me. On top of that they secrectly charged $10 extra on my card after my flight! I already got the ticket and paid extra luggage- what is the extra charge for?? The lady at extra luggage tried to overcharge me as well! Had to refer her to your website! I need this excess charges reversed. I demand an explanation!"
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"
Cons: "We were packed into the airplane like sardines!"
Cons: "This plane was better."
Pros: "Crew was good on the overseas flight. The purser especially, and his attitude rubbed off on the others."
Cons: "No wifi. Entertainment screen, etc was ancient by competitors' standards. Very difficult to operate, and I could not get it switched off once on. The screen light was in my face all night! I noticed another passenger with the same problem. Screen kept going blurry too. I booked Swissair because the price was good, now I regret that."
Pros: "Very pleasant flight, excellent take off, didn't feel a thing. The crew was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "They could not give me an aisle seat which I had requested. The cabin felt as if you were sitting in a tin can. Very restricted for an almost 8-hour flight. Plus arriving in Athens I discovered that my bag was nowhere to be found. I am still waiting to hear from Swiss about my lost valise..."
Pros: "video on demand, great movie selection. Food and wine included at no additional charge, and it was good."
Cons: "Cramped seat, with equipment box in my floor area, made overnight flight very uncomfortable. Didn't sleep well."

Cons: "i don't like that we didn't have a personal tv."
Pros: "The fact we landed on the ground safe"
Cons: "Crying screaming babies on board"
Pros: "Spending $10 per mediocre beer at JFK while waiting an additional 5.5hrs for a different aircraft to come in, instead of meeting my potential future employers in Charleston at one of the town's best seafood restaurants. Best way to spend my time. Had a blast."
Cons: "Complete boarding before computer error was found. A delay is bad, but complete boarding and complete deplaning in addition to a 5+ hr delay is cruel and unusual."
Pros: "Faster. Arrived on time."
Cons: "Although the bag was in the overhead bin and contained only a military uniform item, a GPS, and several pieces of mail with my name and address on them, I was told there was no guarantee hey would find my bag. A sixth grader with mediocre enthusiasm could easily have reunited me with my bag. IT HAD MY NAME AND ADDRESS INSIDE. Its been 6 days and the best answer I got was "We are not responsible for items you leave on our aircraft. We don't know if anyone even found it". Really? Is this that difficult to figure out? Can a strange bag left on a plane be overlooked for six days? That scares me."
Pros: "Easy and good customer service!"
Cons: "The delay ...."
Pros: "I got there really fast"
Cons: "Traffic at JFK"
Pros: "Free movies"
Pros: "Air Europa staff were pleasant, airplane was clean, and they served two excellent meals. Cabin design allowed room to stand up and stretch."

Cons: "Plane noise was high and was not able to sleep. I will have to try ear plugs next time."
Pros: "Very spacious."
Pros: "Everything was better than expected."
Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."
Cons: "An officious crew who said they had a 'seat belt detector' to tell if people's seatbelts were fastened. A late flight... with lies about the reason for the delay."
Cons: "Issues with connecting flights so had to sit in different place, seat was broken"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great! We had rough weather for the entire flight, and they handled everything great"
Pros: "It was fine. They didn't charge me for the exit row, so that was nice"
Cons: "N/a. It was fine"
Pros: "Yeah...spacious leg rooms."

Cons: "Sitting in the last row where my seat didn’t recline and it was loud and no window. It was claustrophobic!"

Pros: "Boarding was quick Flight experience was good"
Cons: "Leg space was less Take off got delayed"
Pros: "Landed safely."
Cons: "Late departure. Almost missed connection. Even though we planned a decent amount of time between flights. Always something causing delays when we leave from Newark."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "no vegetarian food in flight, the layover for connecting flight was not sufficient,"
Pros: "The flight could not be have been nicer. Lovely crew!!!!"
Cons: "Boarding issues cause delay after plane had to be replaced People were double booked Then land awaited on tarmac because of no ground crew Caused me to miss my next flight"
Pros: "Flight crew is helpful. We travelled with my 82 year old mother who needed some assistance, especially for our short connection times, and they made sure she and our whole group made it to the connections on time."
Cons: "My husband is 6’ 4” tall so the seats on the CRJ-700 are a tight fit for him. Had some trouble with boarding passes not loading on the app and couldn’t select seats until we got to the gate."
Pros: "Air crew was excellent"
Cons: "Our flight was changed/delayed because of smoke detector problems!! We lost a whole day on the trip and we are very upset"
Pros: "Couldn't recline as I was in the emergency exit row but I had some extra room with no seat next to me so that was nice"
Cons: "Couldn't recline in my emergency exit row"
Pros: "Good choice of video programs."
Cons: "The flight attendant took 25 minutes to appear, and had enough time for one round of service. First class, at least you should get two drinks. Fly basic economy, there just isn’t any reason to fly first class."
Pros: "I've always wanted to go to all five Manhattan boroughs in one day. Thanks to Delta, that happened."
Cons: "The plane broke down as we were about to take off. Delta rebooked everyone on to new flights because it was pretty obvious that plane was not going to be fixed in time. The crew did their best given the situation. The situation was absolute bs though - we had to take a cab to JFK for our new flight and do the whole security thing again and all that annoying stuff. Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta."
Pros: "Flight team were wonderful!"
Cons: "the short connection screwed me"
Pros: "The boarding didn’t take long at all. The staff and crew were very pleasant and polite. Everything was done in a timely manner."
Cons: "Well you get what you pay for so I’m not really complaining here. The economy seating was a bit cramped. I’m 6 foot and it was not comfortable for me. I can only imagine how it eould be for people taller and bigger than me. Flight was too short for meas. Snacks were good though."
Cons: "No check in to Minsk from Paris"
Pros: "I liked the plane being on time & a smooth flight. The crew was great too."
Pros: "I flew with Delta"
Cons: "Your information was Aeroméxico"
Cons: "They had a 40 seat plane that had about 15 people and they herded everyone in the rear of the cabin. All the extra comfort seats went empty. I asked and was told I had an economy ticket so there couldnt do anything."
Pros: "once we left Ewr everything went smooth"
Cons: "Late taking off. had to hurry to catch final leg"
Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "I liked: After check-in, I was given luggage sticker and told that luggage will be collected in Hyderabad which is my last destination, same was printed the sticker."
Cons: "I didn't like: While transition from Mumbai to Hyderabad, i was told to collect the luggage in Mumbai and check-in again which made so worried and confused."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour"
Cons: "Super small plane"
Pros: "loved the pillow and the blanket and the movie options"
Pros: "Overall was ok gor a very cheap flight considering it is not a lowcoster."
Cons: "Very incomfortable seats. Hardly reclign, no leg room. I am 5’8” and slim and it was tight."
Cons: "bumping and no coffee"
Cons: "Very warm in cabin, no means of controlling air flow. Seat space very cramped. Very tall person next to me in my space"
Cons: "I am an Asian woman. After seeing the person who is a Caucasian man set next to me used the toile right in front of our seat twice during the flight, I went to use it. Just as I was entering the toilet a flight attendant yelled at me saying: "you can’t use this toilet. It’s for privileged people. You have to go to the end of the aircraft and use that one!" Then 10 minuets later another caucasian man seated behind me went to use the toilet right in front me without any problem."
Pros: "Great flight, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Didn’t connect to entertainment didnt"
Pros: "The crew was personable and was kind at the transfer desk in Lisbon."
Cons: "No USB hole, flight was so delayed that I missed my connection. I like JetBlue better than TAP."
Cons: "Not getting new business configuration"
Cons: "On any international flight I've been on in the past one checked bag has always been complimentary. This is the first time I was surprised by a checked luggage fee of $85. Considering my wife and I were already at the airport, we had no choice but to pay for our checked bags – resulting in almost $380 in luggage fees for our round trip flights. This restriction was buried on the ticket purchase information – a very sneaky move that cost us significantly. Won't be flying TAP Air Portugal again!"
Pros: "Liked connections and price. Nice crew."
Cons: "There was a hefty charge to reserve seats which wasn’t clearly mentioned on the Justfly website. Knee room was the tightest I’ve had on a commercial flight. The seats barely reclined which is important on an overnight flight."
Pros: "Very nice flight. Complimentary wine, meals and movies. We were in Economy Plus so the leg room was quite good."
Pros: "overall good service; seats are full recline leaning type, which isn't the most comfortable solution, but ok."
Cons: "TAP connecting flight was three hours late"
Cons: "The flight was oversold and we got bumped off with 20 other passengers even though we had all booked months in advance. I’m still not in Marrakech, now a flight to New Jersey. I’m so sad and it’s my wedding anniversary."
Cons: "We had to pay $200 each way to check in a luggage and just pick regular seats. That was not clear when we bought tickets. Additionally, they don't announce the gate until 30min before boarding. If you're going through passport control that can be a 45min process. On top of that even though I paid $100 to reserve seats, when we arrived at the gate the seats we reserved weren't reserved. Why did I just pay $100?! Luckily I had receipts. Our connecting flight was delayed 4 hours, making our layover 7 hours! For an hour flight. This is the worst airline."
Cons: "Seats are very tight had more room on earlier jet blue flight"
Cons: "Flight got canceled and delayed, staffs very mean and unprofessional"
Pros: "They broke my bag, it took them over 3 months to answer my complaint and then they said that the Manufacturer would take care of it. On top of that they made me pay to check on my bag for each flight, including connections, and they didn’t even reimburse that"
Cons: "Business flat seats quite restrictive"
Pros: "The crew & cleanliness in general . On time ."
Cons: "What I don’t like in all modern flights in economy( not enough leg room) . I’m 5feet 8 and can hardly fit . I’m Not overweight. I can’t imagine what taller people must feel like."
Cons: "Flight crew prohibited us from using FAA approved child seat on board despite airline regulations explicitly accepting FAA approval. Flight crew also refused to give any reason. Their communication was not curteous."
Pros: "The staff were really friendly and the flight was as comfortable for me as a transatlantic journey in stage class can be. The food was surprisingly tasty and that Portuguese wine was offered for free made me and the passengers around me feel welcomed and well taken care of."
Cons: "My flight arrived late, apparently, as myself and people on two other connecting tap flights all deplaned after our respective boarding calls had begun. There was no announcement for people with tight connections or about what to do if we couldn't make them. That tap didn't plan out sufficient connection times for the conditions of the airport, and that it was security, not to itself, that did anything to try to expedite is through passport control, etc was disappointing and resulted in several extra hours stuck in the airport for me and for those on one of those other missed flights having to wait overnight for another seat"
Cons: "Our flight leaving Boston was delayed by 2 hours due to a mechanical issue. So, we missed our connection in Lisbon to Venice (our final destination). We were rerouted from Lisbon to Rome and then to Venice, turning our 2 leg journey into a 3 leg flight. We were offered just 16 euros worth of food vouchers for our trouble. We asked for lounge access because missing our connection meant we had to cool our heels in the Lisbon airport for 3 hours until our flight to Rome took off. We were told we'd have to pay for the lounge! Then, our flight to Rome was delayed. We stood at the gate for 40 minutes past boarding time. No staff even announced that the plane was delayed or how long we should expect to wait. When we finally got to Rome, we had 10 minutes to make our connection to Venice. We lost an entire day in Venice."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and helpful"
Cons: "It was hot in the cabin. The lights were turned on and off without an announcement and without much time to sleep."
Pros: "Seats felt smaller than most international flights"
Cons: "Rock hard seats. Surly stewardess. Mediocre to poor food."
Pros: "Paid a bit more for roomier seats up front and worth it. Seemed like newer aircraft with "leather" seats and better padding than the older aircrafts."
Pros: "There was great entertainment on the first flight"
Pros: "very rude empoyees at check in"
Pros: "Overall flight was smooth and crew seemed nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving Boston due to an ac problem. In the end they got it squared away but we sat on the plane for an hour at the gate with absolutely no air flow and it was pretty uncomfortable. Feel as though they should've come around and gave waters, etc to passengers. Also could have improved the selection of in flight entertainment, not many offerings"
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "No lounge airside at Lisbon airport, no shops open that early in the morning"
Pros: "I tot was nice that the flight was not completely full so that we could have a little bit of room"
Cons: "Second connecting flight was very rough. We thought that this would be the shorter, easier flight but it was not"
Cons: "After we had to turn around to BOS because of a technical issue with the plane, the customer server was really unhelpful! I ended up figuring out a completely other flight, through another airline and booked myself on that flight. I worked with this Airline almost an hour to get myself on it and then it seems that it took TAP Portugal that hour PLUS SOME to suggest alternate flights to other stranded passengers."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "I enjoyed flying with tap"
Pros: "Free blanket, pillow, headphones, and wine! Flight was on time, no one weighed or measured carry on bags."
Cons: "Tight seats for an international flight!"
Pros: "I don't know. We weren't able to make out flight. We booked 6 months in advance through Easyjet. Our flight time was 7:45. Sometime between then and our flight, they changed the time to 6:20 without informing us. We found out when we went to check in and our flight time was different. This caused us to miss our flight. We tried to get a refund and they denied changing anything even though we have documentation."
Cons: "We booked 6 months in advance through Easyjet. Our flight time was 7:45. Sometime between then and our flight, they changed the time to 6:20 without informing us.

We tried to get a refund and they denied changing anything even though we have documentation."
Pros: "Good price. Fast, friendly crew."
Cons: "Incredibly tiny seats."
Pros: "very pleasant experience flying TAP. Baggage check was free, and for our international flight we had a top notch entertainment system in seat. Would definitely fly again!"
Pros: "The food was good and the seats were very comfortable. The selection of moves was alright. The crew was very gracious despite all the problems with boarding."
Cons: "The boarding process could not have been worse. Both legs were delayed because of bag issues. One leg a significant portion of us had to get off the flight because there was not room for all the luggage. They made me a check my carry on bag because it was over small mediocre weight requirement even though lots of people had heavier bags. Then they LOST that bad for 2 days and it was a nightmare getting it back in another country. The second leg, a person whose bag was on board was unaccounted for, so we were delayed again."
Pros: "Latency is a big problem with TAP. Had two flights and bothe were late with very unpleasant Result for me, missed next flight."
Pros: "the flight itself was great"
Cons: "the airport in Lisbon is really disorganized with few people to check all the passports, so it took a long time to get to the connecting flight."
Pros: "Good organized, friendly staff"
Pros: "Seats were spacious. TVs on the flight with lots of movies and TV shows. No delays, great service. Highly recommend it!"
Pros: "Nice new plane, lie flat beds, great value for the price"
Pros: "Salmon salad was awesome! Movie selection was good."
Cons: "The plane was a bit jankey. They didn't give out headphones until later in the flight. Being in business didn't seem like there was a lot of care, service or hustle on the crews part."
Cons: "The crew in business class was unfriendly, rarely smiled, and generally seemed as if they did not like their jobs."
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "We were on the tarmac for hours, boarded twice and not until 3am was told that the flight was canceled. The flight was at 7:30pm"
Pros: "Comfort, space, polite and pleasant crew."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Cons: "When I travel in a low-cost airline, I don't expect much, but I do expect the plane to arrive on time. My plan included a flight from Boston to Lisbon and then to Málaga, but at the end I received a delayed trip from Boston to Lisbon, an unexpected visit to Madrid to finally arrive to Málaga, just about 12 hrs late. My declared luggage arrived two days later, after a ton of phone calls to the airline. To make things worse, the jack of the earphone given by the airline broke inside my computer and I can't listen to it anymore. Could it be worse? Yes, but that doesn't help me a bit."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The long flight to Portugal from Boston TV was broken. Flight attendants said "Poor you". It was very rude that they did not offer any other services, for example a magazine or book."
Pros: "Half empty plane was the best part of the flight."
Cons: "People treated the plane like it was their home. People threw trash on the ground, let their kids run around. It sucked."
Pros: "The crew were friendly"
Pros: "Nice staff, lits of attention in my aeat"
Cons: "Blocked toilet made cabin unpleasant and stuffy. I was uncomfortable because of smells in the plane. Shoukd have been fixed immediately. Not sure the Purser knownehat to do. Skywatch soes not work in center seats. Could not follow flight status."
Cons: "Over 6 hours delay on the first leg of the trip and 20 hours delays on the second leg. All this with no communication/transparency about what was going on."
Pros: "Good plane. Good price."
Cons: "Food could be better."
Cons: "we prebooked seats online yet when we arrived at gate they said there was a seat change and the seats we were given were terrible ...no window , very cramped , no earphones , no screen for entertainment ...possibly the most uncomfortable flight we have ever had ...we waited over 1 hour to even receive some water ...VERY DISAPPOINTED indeded"
Cons: "As a whole the flight was punctual and comfortable, but I did not find my check-in baggage at Narita, my final distination. They said it was found at Hong Kong. One of the possible cause, I guess, was that at Lilongwe where I checked-in the network system was down and the staff wrote the baggage tag by hand."
Cons: "There was an additional stop in Mombasa that was not part of the original flight. Apparently added within a week of our flight. This change of route and added stop caused the flight to arrive two hours late at Kilimanjaro where our ride had to wait for that extra time without knowing why."
Pros: "Had three seats to myself, great for a midnight flight. Staff inside airport are much more attentive and helpful than before. We were waiting at security and someone took a group of us to another security line that was empty, to speed up the process."
Cons: "Bathroom in terminal (the temporary one) was disgusting, water everywhere and a terrible smell. Entertainment is never good on Ethiopian Airlines, other than some of the very old classic movies, but you can only watch The Sound of Music so many times! Food was blah. Flight attendants were variable - one was very nice, another was almost throwing the food trays at us."
Cons: "Food was lousy, cabin lights in the dream liner NOT WORKING!!!!!!!!!! HAD TO ACTUALLY STUCK CHEWING GUM ON MY CABIN LIGHT TO GET SOME SLEEP"
Pros: "We got scammed out of the tickets from Justfly.com and Ethiopian Airlines turned us away without looking at our tickets. I am upset. Now I have to get more Covid Testing done and that will cost approx. $700 and new plane tickets. JustFly.com's customer service is misleading and deceiving. And they blocked my number."
Cons: "Background check your booking agencies and their agents."
Cons: "First safety"
Cons: "Punctuality. Time is off the essence."
Pros: "I like that it’s a direct flight from Newark to Lomé I like that it’s cheaper than over airlines I like that it’s a late flight: it allows out of state passengers to catch the flight without having to stay overnight in NY"
Cons: "Some crew members are unfriendly The toilets are always smelly and dirty. The floor stick with pee. Pee all over the toilets seats. Unsanitary especially when you are traveling with a child or an elderly. The TVs touch screens do not work The volume of the crew is too high"
Pros: "The crew members were very accommodating and friendly. They do a wonderful job. When I told them that the power was not working in my seat and that I needed it for my CPAP (I call it my anti-snoring device), they arranged for me to move to another seat where the power worked for the CPAP. When the power did not work in the new seat for my laptop, they offered to let me charge it in a more powerful outlet near the galley."
Cons: "The power didn't work for my laptop. It did work for my CPAP device. Some of the seat control buttons were out of order."

Cons: "Old airport that is uncomfortable with bad lounges that are not even worth going into."
Pros: "Seat layout-767 has only two seats across on the side sections, much better than three, which most planes have. Crew was courteous, captain explained reasons for delay. Plane was not crowded."
Cons: "Flight delayed two hours by weather. Ground operations seemed slow. All planes were delayed by weather, but ours took longer to get ready once weather cleared. Passengers were bussed to the plane for both boarding and disembarking while other planes used jet bridges."
Cons: "The entire flight was great!"

Pros: "The customer service from crew members"

Cons: "The aircraft. Its an older and much used 777 200. Seats, bathrooms, etc have lots of mileage. Needs overhaul."
Cons: "Checkin luggage did not get loaded onto the connecting flights at addis ababa. Had to wait two days for the next flight from addis ababa to gaborone botswana to receive our luggage. The ethiopian air office in gaborne was helpful straighteningbout the situation. I would fly ethiopian air again."

Pros: "Crew members were friendly, movie selection was good, food was nice as well"
Cons: "When checking in I asked if I'd need to collect my bags and recheck them for another flight. I was assured theyd make it all the way to my destination and I wouldn't need to re-check it. He was wrong and now I'm trying to find my lost bag."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seats, entertainment system was outdated, airplane was shabby and the main meal was horrible."

Pros: "I don't think I say anything I liked."
Cons: "Food, veg option, given peaces of boiled mushrooms, Eggplants and spinach. What a horrible experience."
Pros: "Cheap fares and direct flight"
Cons: "Entertainment very poor. Would recommend a kruger selection of movies and preferably to be available to watch once we are on the plane waiting for take off. Economy class space limited ."
Pros: "I like that even though the flight was delayed they managed to board all passengers and get things going quickly for departure."
Cons: "Upon arriving to Rome, the time taken to land, actually getting off the plane and into the airport takes a very long time. Not much time to get to your connecting flight. Make sure you have at least 1.5 or 2 hr minimum layover time when booking connecting flights from Rome."
Pros: "Nice entertainment, good food and staff"

Pros: "Good flight"

Pros: "Being able to chose my seats for free with the Millemiglia programme. The legroom was not bad."
Cons: "No hot drinks or food available to purchase inflight. The toilets were dirty and smelly."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport at 9:00 to check in for our flight that was scheduled for departure at 12:15 and we were told that we could not check in until 2 hours before the flight (10:15). All of the passengers for flight AZ1466 lined up in front of a check-in counter that displayed Alitalia for our flight. At 10:45 they announced the check in for AZ1466 at a different check-in counter knowing full-well that everyone was lined up for flight AZ1466 on our line. So then everyone that was lined up at the first counter had to line up at the new counter. My wife and I were initially 3rd in line and then after we had to move we were in the very back of the line. On top of that, they only had 1 person checking everyone into economy (which was most of the people on the plane) and they also had to weigh everyone’s carry-on baggage. We were initially told they had weather issues with the snow in Rome and they did not know if we would take off on time or would be cancelled. However, I was getting e-mail messages from Kayak stating our flight was on-time. So how is it that a 3rd party travel company knew what was going on, but the crew at Alitalia did not? Afterward I had to go through security, wait on the tax refund line, and go straight to board the plane. After that we waiting on the plane for 50 minutes and did not take-off until 1:05 PM. These were the problems in short: 1. No one informed us that we could not check in at this particular airport until 2 hours prior to flight departure. 2. They did not begin the check in process until 90 minutes prior to departure. 3. We had to switch check-in lines and they only had 1 check-in person. 4. We had no time to shop or eat lunch at the airport. 5. We boarded the plane and waited until 13:05 to takeoff when we were scheduled to take off at 12:15 (50 minute delay). 6. We received no communications about delays from Alitalia (via e-mail or app). However, we received e-mails from Kayak stating everything was on time. We had no communication from Alitalia about the delay or that we could not check in early (which you could do at every other airport I have been to). We also had a connecting flight in Rome that we were concerned we would miss. We arrived at Rome airport on a delayed flight out of Marco Polo airport (AZ1466). Our 13:40 flight to JFK (AZ610) was delayed until 14:45. After we arrived at Rome airport we ran through the airport to our gate and boarded the plane. After we boarded the plane we waited until 16:10 to take-off (85 minute delay). We did not receive any communication from Alitalia via e-mail, the Alitalia app, or crew members that our flight was being delayed any longer than it already was. We planned on stopping to use the bathrooms in the airport, eat a decent lunch, and shop (which I promised my wife we could do at the airport). However, we could not do any of those things because we did not receive any information about delays from Alitalia. After we arrived home in New York the airline l"
Pros: "Everything was great except that our srtoller was nos given back in our stop in Rome and we needed it badly."
Cons: "Everything was great except that our srtoller was nos given back in our stop in Rome and we needed it badly."
Pros: "The Crew was really helpful with baby, bringing bassinet (that I reserved prior to the trip) and letting me boarding preferentially."
Cons: "Probably not the company fault, but my stroller was a little damaged when I got it at my destination."
Pros: "Alitalia gets a bad rap, but I thought this flight was excellent, and a comfortably way to travel the 13 hour flight from Rome to Los Angeles. Cabins recently refurbished on 777 thanks to Etihad Airways investment. Food, and plenty of it, was excellent. Wide selection of wines. Choice between freshly made American coffee or Espresso (from Lavazza). Lie flat seats are way more comfortable than KLM. Esoteric selection of documentaries and Italian movies. Leather seats and color scheme is elegant. Also, business class lounge (Alitalia House) at Rome Fiumincino serves delicious freshly cut Italian cold cuts, cheeses, pastrries, and has an actual barista vs a machine. You don't get the sense that they are cutting corners, which is probably why the airline keeps losing money, but that is to the benefit of the traveler (for now). Service friendly. For nonstop to this part of Europe, or for connections to Southern Europe, it may be my number one Skyteam choice."
Cons: "Check in is extremely unorganized and long lines at Sky Priority, but someone finally directed me to the VIP check in in the back, which you can use if you are flying Business Class or have Elite status. This was not indicated anywhere, though, so make sure you ask or look for it if there is a long line at check in. Then, the gate is very, very far. Not sure why they had me check in at Terminal 1 as the gate is in Terminal 3. Make sure to allow for plenty of time, and maybe see if it's possible to check in at Terminal 3, which may well save time. But for a 14-hour flight in total comfort, the trade off was worth it."
Pros: "The lady at the check in counter was super nice, I was a few kilos over and she didn’t charge me extra"
Cons: "The plane looked old and dirty"
Pros: "Boarding was on time for all my flights."
Cons: "KLM switched online check in to Alitalia literally right at checking time. It was extremely unnerving, and required much more time, as I did not have an Alitalia account."
Pros: "There were lots of entertainment options"
Cons: "Had my call button on for an hour to get some water to take an aspirin and no one ever came."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No free food, even drinks need to be paid."
Cons: "See above. This scam is not acceptable. You should be ashamed. I demand my money back for paying twice for baggage, including the airport fee. I will be going to the media re this scam and seeing if I can start a class action."
Cons: "poor communication always, always late departure, seat space so small it baffles the mind on a long flight that they cram people into the plane in such a way"
Cons: "One of the entertainment systems was in disrepair. The headphone jack was jammed and the USB charge port was broken."
Cons: "I.m 6'2 and it was impossibly uncomfortable"
Cons: "The lost my suitcases"
Pros: "Not too much. Standard flight. They had ok wine I guess."
Cons: "Ancient planes. Had to use proprietary headphones, I thought they stopped doing that. No USB. Screens seemed 20 years old. It's 2017!"
Cons: "I tried to talk with the service desk to change my flight before the flight and the service team could not help me out because only the service desk outside security could look up other fights. I find this hard to believe and a little ridiculous that AirItalia would make their customers run around inside and outside security to switch flights. We live in a day of technology and have computers for a reason. There shouldn't be an issue why other flights can be looked up from only one computer. In addition, we boarded the plane and then we waited on the tarmac for 2 hours waiting to leave. The air was turned off and it was hot and stuffy inside the plane."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Almost 4hours delay, messy boarding, even worse connection, not all crew speaks English on the long haul..."
Pros: "The seats are bigger than in other airlines! Good space."
Cons: "The crew disappeared, they would not come when they were called. They were too busy fighting with each other."
Cons: "Everything. Paid premium economy, didn't even have milk for coffee, seats were horrible, food was mainly bread. Old entertainment. Snappy staff. Would never recommend this airline to anyone!!"
Cons: "flight was over 30 minutes late which is unacceptable for a 1:55 flight!!!!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and didnt get information from the hungarian ground staff about the reason. They just changed it for Austrian Airlines but I don't like Austrian Airlines and i had also an Insurance for this ticket. After a long conversation I could fly by Lufthansa with stopover in Frankfurt."
Cons: "staff was nice, lost my luggage, and it was 8 hours late, i paid 2x to leave earlier, and got in later than the cheapest flight"
Pros: "80 euro return from MLA to Rome, including bags. A snack & drink provided. Beat ryanair hands down!"
Cons: "Paid for upgrade comfort seats. Did not get them on the outbound flight ROM-TLV. They could not explain why we did get the seats and have not paid back the 80€ for the 2 seats. Had to fight for the comfort seats TLV-ROM. DO NOT LIKE ALITALIA!"
Pros: "I liked receiving my luggage 2 days after I got to Rome suitcases were lost by air Berlin last time I'll ever fly air Berlin the seats are crammed horrible horrible experience never again"
Cons: "Delay with departure. Very poor crew attitude"
Pros: "Did not misplace my suitcase as they did on my October 28,2016 going to Rome. That was very stressful!"
Cons: "Alitalia customer service not answering and updating information on misplaced luggage. They acknowledged the mail...that's about it!"
Pros: "The experience was as good as one can expect a quick flight to be."
Cons: "Purchased ticket through Kiwi. Never will use them again. EVER! The "E ticket" didnt have: Terminal Carrier i.e. Air Italia The flight numbers Any record or reference number the airline(s) could use. Could not purchase a bag and had to pay extra at the airport Whilst clearing security Air France pulled me out of line found me to be 1 killo over, and air Italia demanded another 75 euros. Not the first time this has happened. I pointed out numerous french people passing with very heavy bags and indeed helped several women lift 20+ kilo bags on the flight into the overhead bin on this flight and others. They all were french and never were they stopped with their heavy bags "Oh" the "security" guy said "I thought you were English!" "Not so" said this Irishman "And you are racist". To no avail and all part of Air france's business plan to charge the dreaded Estranger extra. Never again will I fly Air France. Id rather take a train, drive or even walk. Very bad experience start to finish and yes so very Air France; well Air Italia too.."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment (not even radio). Seat headrests not adjustable, so bad luck if you are tall. Food was the smallest pastry I think I've ever seen. Tray table was dirty when I folded it down."
Cons: "worst food"
Cons: "Same as above. I will never fly this airline again"
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Meals were small and below average."
Pros: "Crew were cool and food was great"
Cons: "There was more than an hour delay in taking off, the boarding started late, and after the boarding we waited an hour seating inside the plane.. so of course the flight came late. I nearly missed my next flight. The variety of movies was poor. Half of them were Italian movies (I respect that, but I don't speak the language), I wish there were more movies and newer ones it's not easy when you have 11 hours flight also the chairs were really small, even compared to alitalias smaller planes in which the chair is larger and much more comfortable"
Cons: "It was very long..."
Pros: "The check in service was helpful."
Cons: "Crew had difficulty with English."
Pros: "on time and reliable."
Cons: "Some crew are not very happy to served clients. They just do their job to earn their livings but they have no service mind. It is absurd that we had to thank them and got no response back. Does Alitalia start hiring robots? Unlike Etihad, Alitalia needs a huge room of improvement for customer service. Very poor service. We will not fly Alitalia again."
Pros: "the crew was very helpful and very friendly"
Pros: "The seat was ok"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment. lack of service(i had to ask few times just for a glass of water).bad food, even the bread was not fresh. filthy windows.as for the magazines,maybe they should replace them with new ones once in a while.."
Pros: "good wine and beer"
Cons: "there was no boarding order -- just a free for all. why are there metal boxes below at least one seat in every row and section of seats? makes it harder than it already is to stretch our your legs. food was better than the outbound flight but again, that's not saying much. i will not fly alitalia again if i can help it."
