Chris, my attendant was the nicest I’ve ever had. I’d fly Swiss just for him

Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The seats had such little cushion that it made the flight extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "We were packed like sardines! My flight made me want to retire from traveling!"
Pros: "Liked the time of the flight."
Cons: "It left late."
Pros: "From Geneva to Athens we use the AEGEAN AIRLINES and the flight was very good over all. We had to use the AEGEAN because we missed the SWISS flight due to United's delays."
Cons: "Actually making the flight"
Cons: "The plane was SO hot and stuffy. It was an overnight flight, so they passed out blankets—but it was so hot no one used them. The air was stale, to the point of feeling claustrophobic."
Pros: "Crew, food, boarding, service"
Cons: "Very tight seats. Not enough of leg room"
Cons: "It would have better if the flight wasn’t 5 hours late."
Pros: "Good entertainment options"
Cons: "two of the three phone charge ports were not working I think the passenger seating areas may not have been deep cleaned"
Cons: "Seat comfort. Sore behind after 11hrs"
Pros: "Hospitality was wonderful. The food and drinks were great and the constant entertainment made the 10+ hour flight bearable."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable but there is definitely not enough leg room especially if you are sitting in the middle seat. There should be some type of incentive given if you get stuck sitting between two complete strangers."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Swiss Airlines Saff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "0"
Pros: "The food was delicious, the staff was wonderful. Entertainment was awesome."
Cons: "The leg room or seat closeness."
Pros: "Very positive experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of a flight late arriving from Barcelona. Unlike an international flight...no entertainment & only a slight snack food. Still highest marks for the crew and the service that they provided"
Pros: "Class staff"
Cons: "Bit of a delay"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Small plane with very uncomfortable thin hard seats. Could feel the ride on this plane. Food not great. No entertainment on board."
Pros: "On time and good service!"
Pros: "Flight staff was attentive and professional."
Cons: "The food was mediocre."
Cons: "Boarding is a mess There is no order at all That delays the flight"
Cons: "It was a 2 hour 40 minute flight. No entertainment."
Pros: "Great seats,comfortable, food was delicious,good section movies. Friendly staff"

Pros: "Fast"
Pros: "We arrived early"
Cons: "No entertainment, no pillows or blankets, uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No tv's on each seat. Seats are. Dry thought and uncomfortable and snacks are terrible"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Food was good for airline food."
Cons: "Swiss air seems to have lost its service edge. The flight attendants just stood around and watched while I struggled with my cane and my bag. They only seemed to snap into action to tell people what to do or not do. I flew the same route two years ago and staff was really kind. Maybe the working conditions have changed; they seemed harried and annoyed (in coach, at least). And I don't think they had to stand in line for an _hour_ to check in (thanks, LAX)."
Pros: "The crew made the right call after the Swiss computers shutted down"
Cons: "Boarding problem. But I have to congratulate the crew for their efforts to overcome the problem in the best possible way"
Cons: "Too narrow seats."
Cons: "The security check point was frustrating. I was detained for :20 regarding my sealed duty free purchase.... Will not shop duty free again on a two-leg itinerary."
Cons: "Very narrow seats. Seat in front reclines in your face. Terrible experience for 100% full long haul flight from LAX to ZRH"
Pros: "Traveling with 3 kids, Swiss kept our seats the same, had our special meals sorted, crew was kind and courteous. Entertainment for everyone."
Cons: "Overnight flight lights too bright, economy seats very narrow (and that's all we ever fly), it was extremely difficult to sleep."
Cons: "In order to board we were requested to line up at gate according to seating group. And then had to wait there in line standing for almost 45 minutes before we were finally told we could proceed to board. No reason for lining up so far ahead of time....and had to stand....."
Cons: "I paid extra for a seat with more room but found that the seat did not offer any more room than the average coach class seat in any other airline. That was unexpectedly disappointing."
Pros: "The trip thank God was not a long flight."
Cons: "Crew was not very nice unfortunately."
Pros: "So far so good."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "It was good"
Pros: "Nice Aircraft"
Cons: "Unfriendly crew"
Pros: "That is wasn't crowded"
Cons: "That I had a 5 hour delay and I was t informed about it earlier"
Pros: "Bad inedible food and no leg room, and I am small."
Pros: "The entertainment consoles are great, plane is modern and clean, staff on board are very considerate and helpful. Flight left and landed on time and our luggage arrived intact. Everything that we paid for we got."
Cons: "The space between the seats is very small, and the seats recline very far, I found myself a bit too tall to fit in them comfortably, as even reclined my neighbors seat was nearly pressed against my nose. My much shorter girlfriend did not have this problem, and slept through the whole flight. SWISS only has one or two check in agents at LAX, and the wait was about 3hr to process the 300-odd passengers on our 777. I know they're only running a flight or two a day from LA, but I am sure there's a speedier and more efficient way to check us all in."
Pros: "Crew was really nice, comfortable seat, great experience"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "I loved the food, the crew, and the entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crew took way too long to do the drink service. With only one bathroom in the back, they blocked the aisle for 45 min"
Cons: "I was asked to move from my reserved seat for another flyer"
Pros: "very nice flight, good attendants, plentiful with food and drink although dinner was dry (pasta) but tasted fine. Planes (I had to transfer) were on time and efficient. My carry on luggage was weighed which was unusual to me. It was overweight but the kind clerk checked my bag through with no charge as a favor. A pleasant surprise!"
Cons: "Had to make a lot of calls to clarify things. Website not always clear. An example is that I paid extra to reserve seats early and when I went online to do other things, although it showed that I had a seat reserved, it also said no reservations were being taken for the flight in a highlighted notice. Turns out it was just a general blanket message but to me it looked like my seat may have been cancelled. All phone representatives were courteous and helpful although sometimes their accents were strong and challenging to understand but they didn't mind repeating themselves until I understood."

Crew is amazing food was great and movies are top notch

Nothing the crew were very helpful

The in flight crew were not friendly. One flight attendant in particular kept passing by and hit me really hard with her body as she passed by and never once apologized or said excuse me. I’m his startled me every time. I got a drink only 2 times in 9 hours and when I asked for a drink of water I did not get. Also when I put the call button on, no one came. This made me sad as I’ve been very polite as always and I don’t fly with any other airlines.

Pros: "Always helpful cabin staff and very efficient"
Cons: "Cery old aircraft ecenomy cramped (usually fly premium but it was an emergency )"
Pros: "Water station!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The screen"
Pros: "The seating in upper class is unconventional and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Reconfigure seating in upper class. We will no longer be customers for that reason alone.."
Cons: "Staff were unhelpful and ran out of many food items by the time we were served - meaning that there wasn’t anything available for us to eat as we don’t eat eggs. The check-in was stressful and staff were keen to help - unprofessional and unsatisfactory."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and good locker space"
Cons: "Lack of room in seat especially with seat in front reclined."
Pros: "Karl was amazing! So helpful and sweet!"
Cons: "Having the crew tell the guy behind me to plug in his ear phones to watch the video in his phone, rather than me after 20 minutes of noise."
Pros: "Comfy, nice crew, attentive."
Cons: "Nowt"
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Pros: "Meals were excellent and plane was very clean. Economy delight is definitely an upgrade worth considering with extra leg room and space in front of you in general."
Cons: "Boarding can get crowded so don't be in a rush"
Pros: "- Special meals available for those with dietary restrictions. - Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "- Boarding kept getting delayed without any warning. - Duty free purchase was meant to be collected just before boarding the plane but mine was not there. This was not so much an issue but the man said he would have my bag sent to my seat and I was subsequently approached by a crew member who asked for my receipt. Which he was holding in his hand. I would have thought it would be quite easy to confirm the person without them having the receipt as the their name and seat number is on the receipt but he had to go back and check if it was okay. - Found it hard to sleep on the overnight flight due to uncomfortable seats. Would probably not be an issue in upper class. - No comment on entertainment as did not use it."
Pros: "Great attentive service, good food and in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Super friendly and helpful crew, food etc was fantastic very enjoyable flight. Thank you"
Pros: "They didn't serve any refreshments or even water"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Food was very good and plentiful. Entertainment was good. Overall the very long flight was better than expected."
Cons: "It took forever to board in Sydney with all passengers standing and waiting for 45 minutes and never being told what was going on. I resented having my passport and ticket demanded at least 4 times. A bit overkill and a power trip by security. Absolutely despise airport security...there is no uniformity."
Pros: "Everything was good in this flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "I loved the food and the amount of it. There were so many movies and tv shows and music to choose from!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t comfortable enough for me to fall asleep."
Cons: "Bathrooms needed more cleaning mid-flight."
Pros: "We paid for ecomony x which gave us priority check in and boarding plus first meal. Very impressed, we had an exit row seat and the flight attendant who sat opposite us was extremely friendly."
Cons: "I wish the economy x seats weren’t located next to the toilets... it’s pretty bothersome with the noise, smells and light emitted"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and we got fed so often. The movie choices were good."
Cons: "I wish I could have ordered a drink (pay or otherwise) from the tv in front of me"
Pros: "Amenities"
Cons: "Bed was incredibly uncomfortable in first class. It was like sleeping on the floor. People talking loudly in the bar late into the night, which made it even harder to sleep. Didn’t sleep a wink on this 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Great movie selection"
Cons: "They need softer seats...had to stand half the time"
Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Our ticket was canceled apparently due to an error by the airline. Very unhappy about that. The airline couldn't care less."
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent. A little more space between seats would be appreciated. The entertainment equipment was not intuitive or easy to operate. I still feel the airline did a great job getting us to London on-time and a pleasant flight."
Pros: "Francesca was the flight attende t that I had most the most interactions with was very friendly and warm."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Seats in economy are way to small and very uncomfortable if tall. Too close to the seats in front of you. I was miserable all the way to London."
Pros: "I loved the movie choice!"
Cons: "The head rest comfortability, could be softer as well as the pillows, they could also be softer."
Cons: "The crew was rude."
Pros: "Crew was very nice helpful and attentionate Entertainment had plenty of variety maybe not so many new movies but enough to find one you have not seen or classic you could watch again Food was good"
Cons: "We weighted our hand luggage at the counter and then they ask again during boarding little confusing"
Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Everything from boarding to disembarking went very smoothly. Flight was on time, seats were comfortable and crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."

Pros: "Makes travels to LAX a little easier for us dedicated Virgin Melbourne folk. Can. Ow fly direct to LAX without going through Brisbane and Sydney. Food was great. Boarding seemed a little slow. Flight was smooth and on time. Welcome back Virgin."
Pros: "Safe flight, good crew"
Cons: "Food quality was poor."
Pros: "On time, comfortable (for Economy), friendly crew. Nine hour flight didn't feel that long."
Cons: "Entertainment system in our seats seemed pretty beat up. On one there was no sound, on the other not all the buttons on the control would respond when you pressed them."
Pros: "Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Delays caused us to miss our flight from London to Vienna"
Cons: "More than one hour delated"
Pros: "great food and service!"
Cons: "It got a little cold in the cabin for a few hours."
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "Let's see, my connecting flight was delayed. I missed my Sydney flight so they put me ona flight to Brisbane which was actually pretty great. Then, oh then they lose my bag. Two days later I guess is an appropriate time to then put it on the next flight? What? My bag is 20 pounds, smaller than a standard sized Dachshund. And low and behold they said I can spend up to $50 on necessities. Too kind, virgin Australia, too kind."
Pros: "Flight was on time .. Friendly crew. Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and leg room very tight . Didn't sleep well."

Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"

Gotta love to fly in early only to be told we’re going to sit on the plane for 20 mins on the ground waiting for a gate to open up. Detroit is the worst airport in the US.

The flight crew was very rude to people they thought were ignoring mask mandate. There was a lady that said her mask had slipped down and the flight attendant was very rude to her. When is the mask mandate going to be lifted? I wore my mask the whole time but really ridiculous that I have to still wear it. I have been fully vaccinated since February.

Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "Th plain boarding took much longer, we flew in circles above JFK, waited for a gate for us, then waited for all passengers with connecting flights to get off because we were late and that resulted in a VERY long process for the rest of us. The descent into the airport was also not the smoothest, but it was a smaller plane."
Pros: "The plane needed more leg room."
Pros: "When my initial flight was delayed significantly, the gate agents went above and beyond to help me get on an earlier flight so I didn't get home too late."
Cons: "It was great fir a short flight. And they got me there early."
Cons: "My screen wasn’t working. It would have been great if it was."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Left approximately 40 minutes late. Leave on time"
Cons: "We sat for an hour on the tarmac with the plane at about 80-85 degrees and everyone sweating. Once we took off the flight attendants kept turning the cabin lights on and off and serving dinner (on an overnight flight is that really necessary?!) and waking us up. Also plane was old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "More seat space"
Pros: "The crew was great and the service was quick and very nice."
Cons: "It sounds weird but I didn’t know which window was mine so I had one shut and the one in front of me shut during the flight."
Cons: "We were already very delayed, the flight crew was not nice"
Cons: "original, non-stop flight was delayed by 6 hours; was able to get rebooked to another flight but was still 2 hours delayed and my bag arrived another 2 hours after me, ending in a 4 hour delay over all. paid for a non-stop and ended up with a layover."
Pros: "The staff was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "My husband and I could not fit in the seats without our shoulders being on top of each other. My shoulder was in the aisle way. I am 5’8 and my knees were up againstthe seat in front of me. Our flight from CVG to DFW had none of these problems."
Pros: "Nice plane and super nice crew."
Pros: "The flight crew were really polite and helpful."
Pros: "Very good crew"
Pros: "The comfort the professionalism of the staff everywhere I went"
Cons: "Little pricey on rental and hotel."
Cons: "poor hospitality by cabin crews poor toilet smell, business class can smell the poor toilet if the door is opened"
Pros: "More room and comfort than American Airlines."
Cons: "The new "class of service" rules are really awful. "Pay for privilege" is terrible customer service."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of snacks and drinks on such a short flight."
Pros: "Very nice stewardess on this plane. Seating was excellent."
Cons: "Crew was not apologetic after we missed connecting flight due to technical difficulties with their plane. I was re-routed to Barcelona and then a very budgetary Airlines to Athens which was ridiculously tight again with seating and flight was almost an hour late. Luggage didn't come until following day. And to top it off, I thought I would be flying with KLM on both legs!"
Pros: "The flight left on time and landed 15 mins early. Staff was nice and attentive."
Cons: "The organization for boarding in zones."
Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable accommodations, great crew."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Cons: "I was first in line for a 1st class upgrade. They didn’t upgrade me but when I got on the plane, the flight attendant randomly asked someone if they wanted to move to 1st class because of an open sest"
Pros: "It was a very easy boarding process and everybody I can across seemed to be enjoying themselves."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable and the entertainment was not readily accessible."
Pros: "Mobile entertainment was great and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, which is a understandable part of travel. But what made it worse was that we didn’t have any visibility on our actually departure time. We were first told our flight would be delayed an hour, then the departure time was moved up 40 minutes without any clear messaging. We caught an email from Delta, but if we hadn’t, we might have missed our flight. The plane was also abnormally loud on board, and the air pressure seemed to fluctuate throughout the flight, making the experience uncomfortable."
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Great airline stewards"
Cons: "Suggestion- Overhead bin should be assigned to the seat the person is seated in."
Cons: "Pretzel mix was lacking in quantity and taste."
Cons: "SofinwS turned off for most of trip"
Cons: "Bullshit seating...will happily put frequent flyers next to the freaking toilets."

Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "A simple and pleasant experience!"
Cons: "Everyone was professional and polite."
Pros: "All went smoothly ."
Pros: "So many movies to watch. Keep it up!"
Cons: "The food was too sweet and salty."
Pros: "The courtesy of the staff and the seats in the "delta comfort" section."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. i'm not sure if there is a way but there should be a way to only serve only those who are requesting service."
Pros: "We flew first class for the first time. Now I don't think I'll fly any other way!"
Pros: "Small plane. Not a lot of room for carry-ons."
Cons: "Short-ish flight"
Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "Space"
Cons: "."
Pros: "Just over 2hrs only. Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "A bit of turbulence due to weather (no fault of the airlines)."
Cons: "Delta should change their name to always delayed"
Pros: "Nonstop quick flight"
Pros: "Weather, I think, caused a delay for my flight to Atlanta from Dallas which results in missing my connection. I was traveling with my 4-year old granddaughter. However, when I arrived having already missed my flight, I found special assistance area and was able to immediately connect with an agent who booked us on the next flight (last flight of the day to Richmond). Saving the day."
Cons: "All the planes were full and did not have enough room for carry on causing delays and getting the flight off later. The gate agents and crew did what they could to get the plane loaded faster, but they loaded the front first and those in the back could not get past making loading the plane take even longer."
Cons: "Told to drop down a class on arrival at gate."
Pros: "Movies- pro staff"
Pros: "Friendliness of omboard crew"
Cons: "Flight was more than 2 hours late"
Pros: "The fact that the flight was direct. Entertainment options. Availability of USB and power outlets once you upgraded to priority seating."
Cons: "Flight was delayed as a result of volunteers getting off the plane due to overbooking. Their luggage had to be found and unloaded. Abusive and rude ground and security staff. On board staff was curt and was just going through the motions. Priority Seating seats were flimsy and extremely uncomfortable for a 10hr flight, even using the front seat pocket felt like you being kicked in the back. Seats reclined only 3 inches. Quality of food was pathetic. Serving trays were so small that is was impractical to eat out of them as food served barely fit in them. Toilets and sinks were clogged and dirty 1.5hrs into the flight. In short, it felt like you were traveling on a cheap bus."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Was perfect"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "I was not able to make the flight due to the coronavirus. The hospital I’m employed at banned outside travel. I tried contacting the airline and kayak to get a refund."
Cons: "I was not able to make the flight due to the coronavirus. The hospital I’m employed at banned outside travel. I tried contacting the airline and kayak to get a refund or a voucher"
Pros: "Crew was not very frindly and the Turkish airlines staff at Istanbul are not at all friendly and so rude. I will never recommend Turkish airlines to anyone."
Cons: "Too tight seatings"
Pros: "flights on time. special meals I ordered were provided."
Cons: "very long check-in line. took over 1hr to check in. tried to check-in online in advance, but system did not allow me to do this."
Pros: "We were told by terminal staff in Istanbul that the fkught was on Turkish Airlines.We waited in line at the first ticket counter and then we were sent to a second ticket counter where we waited in line again. We were sent to a 3rd counter where the Supervisor was chatting with a lady for 20 minutes. When we reached the counter we were told it was too late to board and we had missed our flight even though there were still 35 minutes to flight time. Turkish Airlines staff would not help us any further and we had to go purchase another ticket."
Pros: "Slept in the flight for 5 hours and my toddler did too , was quiet in the cabin and this is the only good thing"
Cons: "Boarding they kept me and couple othee guys like seeiously 5 staff people at the gate doing nothing and you ask anyone please help i want to tag my stroller so i can board ans go on boarding line, no response only one peeson will work. the rest of the four are completely useless, i eventually told my wife to board with our daughter so they have the time to sit and prepare food etc and pull things they will need durimg flight Andi waited on this last staff person at the gate until she gave me the tag to the stroller and boarded later First meal they said either fish or beaf meat balls, i like both and no problem, but the crew said no fish anymore so you you will take beaf, OK Luckily neither my wife or daughter ate it Because after I ate it, 3-4 hrs later, I had the worst stomach pain ever and was in pain the rest of the flight and the remaining of the day after we landed FYI I ate just crackers and like all bread sandwiches all morning and was completely fine- just the beaf meat balls either not cocked or remains of non good beaf and other things- horrible food"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Passengers were throwing up and the crew did not pass through the cabin to provide any sickness bags. I had to swap my first row seat to the last row as a passenger next to me had thrown up which had caused the entire seat to be dirty."
Cons: "The airport in Turkey had no a/c it was sweltering and packed. It smelled to high hell. Boarding was crazy with people shoving and pushing and cutting each other to get throug"
Pros: "Turkish Airlines offers an experience much better than your average two-hour plane hop in the U.S. There was a full meal served, staff were kind and didn’t try to sell a bunch of extra stuff to you, and there were many choices for in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the children on the plane were really poorly behaved and loud. In addition, the flight was delayed by 1 full hour and when we arrived in Vienna our luggage (and the luggage of many other passengers) had not been sent with us. We waited in line for luggage for 30 minutes, then another line for at least 30 more minutes to report the missing bag, and we were then told that it wouldn’t arrive for another day and would be delivered to us within a 3 hour window in the middle of the day. This was essentially an entire night and day lost to a mishap that the airline didn’t even notify us of when we landed. Pretty frustrating."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Great entertainment, good seat comfort (even in economy seat), good food and friendly service."
Pros: "Food and seat comfort"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "All was great, until..."
Cons: "... the person in front of me reclined their seat. That was the end of my comfort. I’m 5.11”- 1.80cm. Couldn’t watch tv, had trouble eating."
Pros: "Good service, friendly staff."
Cons: "Istanbul airport is obviously outdated and very crowded. Only one restroom for a huge area around gates 300-309."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Seats on the way to Istanbul were extremely small. One of them was broken and did not recline. Food was not good."
Pros: "-Boarding was easy - The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- The leg spacing was not sufficient - The sandwich served was average"
Cons: "Flight to Istanbul was fine. The flight back was a terrible experience! During our connecting flight in Athens our boarding passes wouldn't print at the self service computers and there was no one to help us so we had to go back out to the front desk. The airline representative was extremely rude. There was 5 employees standing around the computer with NO customers and when we asked if this was Turkish Airlines and if they could help, the woman (manager) responded "this WAS Turkish Airlines" as if they were done helping customers for the day (it was 9AM and our flight was leaving in 45 min). We explained that we couldn't print our passes and she ROLLED her eyes as if it was an inconvenience to help us. THEN on our flight from Istanbul to Chicago, a passenger died an hour into the flight and they placed the body on the seats behind us for over 10 hours! Nobody even told us what happened! We didn't know if they died from natural causes or if it was something else! They didn't offer to seat us somewhere else or even inform us they were placing the body there. We were completely shocked and uncomfortable the whole flight home. We couldn't eat or sleep. We're completely disgusted and scarred from this overall experience."
Pros: "Route"
Cons: "crew was so helpful"
Pros: "We received edit seats so we had more room which made the quick flight more comfortable."
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "wifi was announced but did not work"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Comfort, service, food"
Pros: "N O T H I N G"
Cons: "Very unorganized and poor communication services"
Cons: "Crew were rude and everything we asked for was an issue like we didn't exist not sure if they had a problem because we had a baby with us"
Pros: "Attentive crew, great food including perfect attention to our pre-arrangement for vegan meals. Good entertainment selection."
Cons: "No wifi at Istanbul airport."
Pros: "THis reflect in particular the flight from Boston to Instanbul, a long flight. I could see any movie (great selection) and had two full meals as well nice staff. I appreciate this in particular that many airlines cut on these cost/ anemities. Thank you"
Cons: "Not much!!"
Cons: "We were sent into the boarding tunnel before the plane was ready and ended up waiting 5-10 minutes in really hot weather."
Pros: "Window seat, decent selection of movies / shows."
Cons: "VERY small seats. Staff not very attentive."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The first delay during my trip was due to an emergency but my layover was delayed again. I'm not sure if this is an outlier event or if this is a pattern."
Pros: "Having every single person I spoke with pass me on to another party. Apparently customer complaints is really no one's job. They're extremely motivated to have you find someone else to correct your problem. Rest assured it is "your problem" I was told quite explicitly that my missed connection flight and lost luggage was not their problem."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. Couldn't even tell me when my bag was checked despite the scan tag they attached to my boarding pass when they weighed it and checked it in back in New York. They legitimately had no idea if my bag ever left the United States. It took 3 days to locate my baggage while I was trying to celebrate my anniversary with my wife in Athens. being without your luggage for half a week in a foreign country is not even remotely fun. I had to wait around missing tours and reservations trying to find our luggage most of our first 48 hours in Greece. After giving up on getting our stuff we had to waste a chunk of time shopping to replace our clothing and toiletries. Despite having purchased the travel insurance I'm still fighting a month after our trip ended to be reimbursed for the clothes we had to buy just to begin our vacation. Again they continue to stonewall by transferring our complaint calls endlessly and forwarding our emails with "new" case numbers each time. Basically what this accomplishes is they can't ever find the case number they updated it to and insist that the prior case number is listed as resolved. Since they say it's resolved there is nothing anyone can do to help. Not sure if I'll ever get any satisfaction out of this debacle."
Cons: "Boarding was devoid of any announcements or organization, and was just a gaggle of people shuffling towards a gate."
Pros: "Crew members were nice People were good at check in as well"
Cons: "It was ok but room to improve everywhere It's matter of process where it may help to choose international standards rather than follow ones preferences"
Pros: "Comfort and boarding was well done, comfort is really good"
Cons: "Crew was little bit nervous and not nice all the time!"
Cons: "There was not enough milk while they know there is alot of kids"
Pros: "It was a full plain but overall ok I will take this flight again"
Cons: "Horrible customer service. We paid in case of change in flight plan .your airline said no money back."
Pros: "Clean airplane, food was better than the typical "pasta or chicken""
Cons: "Entire group waited to board at makeshift gate. No place to sit and minimal climate control. No word from the airline about when we would board or what was causing the delay. Very poor communication from Turkish Airlines overall."
Pros: "All was great as mentioned earlier."
Pros: "AS AN AIRLINE IWILL NEVER FLY AGAIN BECAUSE INSTEAD OF 5.5 HRS FROM STW TO ATH MY TRIP LASTED 14.5 HRS.THE CREW ON BOTH AIR PLANES EXCELLENT"
Cons: "not all the crew spoke English"
Pros: "The Air hostess are aware of what they are doing, they can manage extra requests from different people."
Cons: "The workers at the boarding they don't have good language to new people they think every one should know every thing about Turkish schedule and other information, It is a little bit strange to have no where to sit at Instambul Airport while having wheel chairs for sick people after bringing them at the waiting place where do you think they will be sitting."
Cons: "Delayed a couple hours."
Pros: "Flight was great overall, but the one piece that I'm hoping is not a repeat is the overly frequent reminders, especially since this was an overnight flight."
Cons: "Too many redundant and unnecessary announcements"
Pros: "I liked the food"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, the entertainment screen haven't changed since 2001 i guess; very bad quality, and it broke down at the middle of flight."
Pros: "The food was excellent on this airline. The service was great. I recommend this airline."
Cons: "Sadly the airlines treat us like cattle now the way they squeeze us in like sardines in their non-adjustable seats. This appears to be true on all most airlines."
Pros: "Had to switch from Turkish airlines to Aegean airlines to reach my destination due to the fact that airplane from JFK left with 1h 20min delay and the connecting flight from Instabul was not waiting plus there were other passenger who got "forgotten"to Instabul ."
Cons: "The flight left very early, without prior warning, so that I almost missed it, despite arriving at the gate at the designated boarding time! The breakfast was also barely edible, which was a surprise as the other times I have flown Turkish the food has been delicious."
Pros: "My check-in experience was very bad. I was doing a business class check-in which was not at all a "business" class experience. The agent was very inexperienced and rude."
Pros: "Great staff , amazing dinner, and the entertainment screen size was best"
Cons: "Seats could be a little bigger"
Cons: "Frankfurt connecting flights, security, and Passport control are terribly inefficient, with unclear guides to get passengers from B gates to A gates."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and professional."
Cons: ". The economy seats on the Lufthansa A350 were extremely uncomfortable and seemed excessively narrow as well has having cramped legroom. I could not get comfortable let alone sleep, and my backside felt like I had been sitting on a park bench rather than a long haul coach airline seat."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Better food, some entertainment, better bathrooms"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "More comfortable seating."
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "My flight was delayed four hours, so I missed my connection to Sofia and had to re-book for two connecting flights instead of one, which makes for a long, tiring trip."
Cons: "I understand the delay due to weather conditions, but I wish I was rebooked for one, not two connecting flights. Now, instead of flying directly to Sofia from Frankfurt, I have to go to Munich first and then to Sofia, which makes my trip 9 hours longer"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "better accommodation of passangers"
Cons: "They told us there were no earbuds so recommended using our own. Our children had left theirs at home so they ran to get a $20 pair nearby. But the the plane DID have the buds; what we did not have were blankets — the crew said none were to be had."
Cons: "Not much legroom and no tv’s on a 10-hour flight"
Pros: "Crew was good overall"
Cons: "Food was overheated and bland in taste. No on board entertainement"
Pros: "Food was good & they served a full meal!"
Cons: "Crew appeared annoyed with everyone. No entertainment provided."
Cons: "Fight could have been on time! It was over 45 minutes late, because of the crew"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew, nice range of entertainment options."
Cons: "An economy seat is an economy seat ...."
Pros: "Very amazing"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Baggage arrived with me. Upgraded to First Class because so many of those passengers got other flights the night before."
Cons: "Original 5 pm flight was cancelled because there was no Crew or plane, even though it’s a United hub. Though flight cancelled early, United could not get me home same day so provided hotel and meal. Next day flight scheduled 7:05 then 8 am, but even that time came and went without boarding. 15 hours delayed and no hurry getting the plane to depart at the stated time. Total lack of customer service and concern"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that the United flight I came in on was over a MILE of corridors away from the outgoing flight."
Pros: "Touch screen is sharp and responsive."
Cons: "Food is ok. Used to be better a few years ago when the cuisine had a Southest Asian fusion style."
Pros: "Cleanliness"
Cons: "It was late by 1 hour. Food was not enough. Was hungry since dinner was late due to delayed flight and breakfast was served at lunch time of MUC. Electrical outliets did not work in the flight and had problems in MUC for GPS."
Pros: "I wasn't expecting free in-flight movies and meals, which were very welcome"
Pros: "Everything on the flight was very efficient and organized—the boarding process, the excellent and pleasant service, the food, and the entertainment selections. Thank you for making a long flight enjoyable."
Pros: "Impecable service. Even worth flying through FRA."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything, as always, great. Keep it up."
Cons: "Walked a very long way in Frankfurf airport to transfer to another flight."
Cons: "Wheelchair assistance did not arrive at gate."
Cons: "Missed my connection due to airline delay and was put on a flight 12 hours later"
Pros: "SERVICE"
Pros: "They were nice"
Cons: "They were good"
Pros: "Service was very good, flight was very smooth"
Pros: "Restful flight"
Pros: "The service by the flight attendants was very good starting from the welcome to the end in spite of the fact that it was quite late night flight. Also by fortunate luck I had the chance to sleep as the next three seats to me were all empty in the middle block, which made the whole trip less exhaustive."
Cons: "If the seats next to me weren't empty and I couldn't lay down across all of them it would have been a difficult flight as the economy seats are not even close with economy comfort levels of other international airlines like Turkish Airlines especially the seat pitch size. Entertainment choices could be improved by more recent movies. There were very few selection."
Pros: "On time all the time"
Cons: "Food getting worse year after year."
Cons: "A man next to me took a picture of me when he thought I was asleep."
Pros: "Our experience flying with Lufthansa was very pleasant. The overall process of making connecting flights through Frankfurt was much easier than we had anticipated. The cabin crew was friendly and courteous. I will be flying Lufthansa again."
Cons: "I would appreciate the ability to check in and get seat assignments at least 2 days before the flight. The day before traveling can be fraught."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "My parents had a wonderful experience. Very professional and courteous!"
Pros: "The agent at the counter was very very helpful and accommodated us to an earlier flight. That saved us lot of time."
Pros: "Fast boarding, on time"
Cons: "Too cold in plane, announcements too loud"
Cons: "Boarding three planes to three different destinations from the same gate is very confusing."
Cons: "It was too cold on the plane."
Pros: "Flight was ok. It was short but loud. Service was good but seats were tight and no in flight entertainment."
Cons: "We were in economy class. It looked like the seats my wife and I were in were smaller than the surrounding seats. The seat I was assigned was also more narrow than the one my wife was assigned. I am tall, and could not move my legs for the trip. Also, the seat controls were on the inside is the seat. I could not move at all without turning on the overhead light or screen."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. I did not want to eat the food and the crew offered me fruit. Great A/V options."
Pros: "Short and Smooth Flight"
Pros: "They handed out baggage claim tickets for the larger carry-on items early so that passengers had plenty of time to rearrange their items, as long as they arrived at the gate in time."
Cons: "They had 3 flights boarding through 2 doors that led to one hallway, which was very confusing. It took quite a while to retrieve the checked carry-on items, with the effect that most of the passengers were lined up down the causeway tube, waiting. The seats are so very cramped on these puddle jumpers; this was way too long a flight for cramped seats that don't recline. The entertainment was wifi that never really worked."
Cons: "We missed the connection so never made this flight."
Pros: "Best crew ever. By far most friendly staff and excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing that I know"
Cons: "This was a united flight. The personal was not helpful, only in helping me communicate with the airport in Rome to change my flight. I had to pay 97 euros for this change. I am upset and think it is not fair that I need to pay for a problem united had with their flight. I also think star Allience failed as they were not able to resolve the problem with their partner airlines."
Pros: "When we fly Trans Atlantic, we always hope it will be with lufthansa! Sometimes they use united as a carrier and it us never as good as lufthansa!"
Pros: "Everything else was fine."
Cons: "I had paid for comfort seats ($140) extra. When I checked in at gate I was given another seat assignment (without explanation). It turned out to not be comfort seat, in fact it was the last row in the airplane. Had to get eh gate agent back, which was not fast. She said flight was full and a family had been spread out. I understand, but you can't just bump me from a paid and selected seat to a standard seat, especially on transatlantic flight after paying $140 extra. There was no apology. She went back to gate and little while later came back with a comfort seat. Some people seem not to have shown up as the seat next to me stayed open as well. It was very poorly handled."
