Pros: "The meals were awesome, flight great!"
Cons: "Swiss Air from Athens to Zurich stellar—excellent service, seating, food—but left one hour late due to air traffic. Nearly missed connecting Edelweiss flight—and that flight was just terrible. Passengers behind me constantly kicking, pulling my seat—wouldn’t allow me to put seat in recline position."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Good movie selection. Pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Six hour delay. They gave us $20 Franc voucher for food but in the airport a latte is 7.50 so 20 did not even buy a bowl of soup."

Pros: "I do not know how to go about contesting his, but we bought 4 tickets to South Africa on Swiss air and Edelweiss via Zurich. We received a confirmation email for two of the tickets but not for the other two so we assumed the other ones did not go through as we used two different credit cards."
Cons: "We purchased the last two again and when we showed up at the ticket counted they let us know that we bought 6 tickets!!!!!!!! We would like to be reimbursed for the two tickets we did not receive the confirmation emails for. How can we go about it?"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Place for the legs and better food"
Pros: "Swissair seating is cramped with 10 across in coach in Boeing 777. The only reason for not giving "poor" rating on this particular ZRH-SFO flight, was the empty seat next to me."
Cons: "Next time, I will give Turkish Airlines a chance, because their aircraft seats only 9 across in Boeing 777 coach. On the SFO-BUD flight, the connection is through Istanbul, but the flight time is the same 15 hours, as on the SFO-ZRH-BUD route. In addition, two checked bags are free in coach."
Pros: "the crew was great."
Cons: "they asked us to check in our carry-on because the plane was full.I had important papers so I had to explain my situation. I hate confrontation so I felt anxious and I'm already an anxious flier. I feel that this should only pertain to people with larger carry-on. my was below the average size."
Cons: "Old plane, rude crew"
Pros: "The food was amazing, the in-flight entertainment was amazing, and the flight attendants were amazingly kind and beautiful. :) Swiss Air has set the standard on airline food, serving Swiss Chocolate and Gruyere cheese on the flight! It was the best!"

Cons: "Boarding terrible just one mass confusion, Flight was one hr.late as of today I am still missing my 4 pcs of luggage."

Pros: "Abosolutely nothing i paid extra for the good reviews i found online but the service was so poor i am disapoi ted i paid that nuch extra for a terrible experience"
Cons: "Entertainment didnt work for the entire trajectory I requested assistance and was ignored every time I requested a vegan meal and was not provided one Boarding was long and disorganized Bathrooms were so dirty, we had not taken off and the barthrooms smelled terrible"

Pros: "Efficient check-in, boarding and on-board experience. Great seat and entertainment. Food also very decent."
Cons: "I find Swiss’ pricinh policy for on-board internet totallh ludicrous and an outright insult. Also, I sometimes appreciate a bit more empathy in the way things get announced - no announcement for security video or when they disrupt a movie with their Swiss commercial clips - they just turn it on. Not abtreat experience."
Pros: "Swiss Air the best!!!!"
Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Service was perfect Food was incredible Movies and entertainment high level"
Pros: "Food and movies"
Cons: "Staff was not attentative. We were very misinformed on the seat upgrade we paid $100 for. And our liggsge was damaged and they had us walking all over ohare airport for no reason at all instead of addressing the issue at Swiss air."
Pros: "Good space above seats"
Cons: "Seats way too tight. But the worst thing was the two passageners in the row we shared. They were laying on each other and it was inappropriate for the entire flight. He was rubbing her breast and I said something. He seemed to stop. Lots of rubbing and huggin and the man had his legs stretched out man spread style"
Pros: "My partner and I loved our first flight with Swiss from JFK to Zurich the chairs was amazing, we enjoyed the full bed and the entertainmnet screen was amazing to enjoy. The food was delicious and the service was amazing."
Cons: "My Partner and I was dissatisfied with our connecting from Zurich to Cairo. We expected the same flight but we were in basically in coach with little more leg room. The chairs barely reclined to a comfortable position. There was no entertainment, just a three and a half hour flight at the flight plan on a small tv hanging over. their was no differentiation between the economy behind us. just the food that was brought to us, other felt the same as well who were traveling in business with us."
Pros: "Crew was professional and attentive. 55 minute flight so food was ice cream, beverages, and a piece of Swiss chocolate. Plane's entertainment system in my section did not work. I had to check my carry-on!"

Pros: "Legroom is too little"
Cons: "This plane was better."
Pros: "I love everything. The aircraft was spacious and clean. The crew excellent and the food very good."

Pros: "nice staff."
Cons: "lack of space. being in middle row."
Pros: "Great flight, happy to have service from Zurich to Nis."
Pros: "Flight attendants where very nice and attentive. Good choice of movies and shows for adults and kids. I usually don't eat airplane food but it looked fresh and my kids enjoyed the breakfast very much with fresh baked bread and croissant. My flight was delayed by one hour but it was a problem caused by the airport not the airline. I still made my connection and I received my suitcaises right away."
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "The tram ride to the plane"
Pros: "Service and snacks are great considering really short flight"
Pros: "The staff was helpful and professional and kind. The equipment was new and clean. The flight was on-time and uneventful. I would fly this airline again any day of the week."
Cons: "The entertainment screen was difficult to see when the person in front of me reclined because the screen was not perpendicular to my line of vision. I survived based on the other qualities of the flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice and I loved the TVs keeping us up to date on the flight and our connection. We were even early boarding."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The airport at Vienna airport checked my hand luggage (and many others as well) on a scale. My was ok and I got a red tape stating that it was checked. At check in it was checked again. I have a very small roll on that I specifically bought for flying in Europe. I never had that in the US."
Cons: "Hi, my flight was delayed for more then 20 minutes and I had next connection flight in short period of time. Even that they now that I will lose next connection they didn't wanted to change my flight to previous flight and they DID had extra seat in a plane."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "Would have been 5 stars overall if not for two hours of a child kicking me seat and occasionally poking my arm."
Cons: "The boarding process at Zurich airport was a mess. There was no communication at the gate to tell passengers what to do or where to stand"
Pros: "Great entertainment center. Complimentary alcohol and snacks. All this masks the torture of sitting in a way -too-small seat for 11 hours plus."
Cons: "We didn't had entertainment"
Cons: "On 4/23/2016 I missed connecting flight from Zurich to Zagreb because Miami - Zirich flight delay and horribly slow security in Zurich. To make the issue worse "somebody" (???) automatically deleted ny return ticket portion."
Cons: "seat size and comfort. Had metal nox take good part of my footroom. small aisle. Food lousy."
Cons: "The service on Virgin Australia is quite poor. They are barely around. The seats are also only mediocre"
Pros: "Although there were delays they kept us informed on a regular basis as to what to expect and seemed genuinely apologetic for any inconveniences. Boarding and deplaning were smooth and efficient. I really appreciated that there was no charge for checking a bag. I am certain that contributes to the ease of everyone getting on and off the plane. Our bags arrived at baggage claim about the same time we got there. I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "such a big difference in size of aircraft, very comfortable and great crew."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic is the best airline I’ve ever flown on internationally. The service is wonderful, from check in to inflight service. Everything went as planned. The food and drinks on board are free and they are an abundance of snacks, much more than we dreamed. The flight attendants are excellent"
Cons: "No. Keep up the good work!"
Pros: "Premium economy was perfect, smaller cabin with less people, great flight."
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "First time flying with a partner through Delta, so they stuck us on a Virgin Atlantic flight meaning I didn't get my free Delta check in bag (a fee of $60 each way) when I have gotten it every other flight I have ever taken with them. It was also 2 whole hours late in boarding."
Cons: "There is no entertainment, not really required on a short flight but nice when offered."
Pros: "I liked the movies"
Cons: "Crew helping everyone be more courteous to people sleeping. Group of guys being loud in the back of the plane while I was trying to sleep"
Cons: "Poor communication about the reasons for our 4 hour delay. Also, we purchased Economy X, which should have given us priority boarding, but we were told we had to stand in the general admission queue."
Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."
Pros: "They didn't serve any refreshments or even water"
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "Everything was good in this flight"
Pros: "food was great!"
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic offers good service at a reasonable price to/from the US to London. Good food service and unbelieveable number of movies and entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "The seating and leg room in economy classic were inadequate. We felt way too confined in our seats and the leg room was a joke. I am only 6' tall and this was unacceptable. We will try to upgrade for the return trip."
Pros: "The ground staff was on top of it and the boarding process was smooth, but the cabin crew was brilliant. I’ve never had such pleasant service on a western airline. Well done. Entertainment system is top-notch, and the food was acceptable."
Cons: "The booking process and paying for luggage is disappointing. Plus, I paid a $90 upgrade and just moved up two rows in the same section. Sneaky."
Pros: "The flight crew was phenomenal, especially Daniella. Somehow we wound up with seats right next to the bathroom door, which would have been a pretty uncomfortable situation for a variety of reasons, but the flight wasn't full, and she helped us find a suitable place to sit. Also, my wife and I usually take our tea with honey vs. milk and sugar. Even though honey is usually one of the options for tea, she found a way to accommodate our request. The lunch meals were the best I can remember in a long time on an airline flight. They might have been the best I've ever had. The chicken curry was authentic, flavorful and spicy. Frankly my outbound flight had problems. My luggage got damaged. The transfer experience in Manchester left a LOT to be desired. I wasn't planning to use Virgin Atlantic again, but this flight crew (Daniella especially) redeemed Virgin Atlantic. They were attentive, pleasant, diligent."
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like about this flight was the boarding area. Once you get into that the area, you don't really have access to appetizing food (only vending machines) or even restrooms. That's one thing that could be improved."
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Uncomfortable to sit for eight hours"
Pros: "The crew was professional, responsive and friendly."
Cons: "The following experience goes down in history as the worst ever because: we had a 3.5 year old child, and mom and dad seated directly in front of our row. The couple ignored the instructions to move seats forward during meals making it impossible to eat. They placed their luggage in the overhead compartment belonging to both rows, which wasn't a problem if they hadn't proceeded to open and close the compartment every 20 minutes. The 300 pd dad repeatedly stepped on my broken toe while reaching for his luggage, while rattling around and disturbing sleeping passengers. And, sadly the child repeatedly threw temper tantrums without any care or effort of intervention from the parents. In short, they terrorized the surrounding travellers. In contrast, my outbound flight, also had a family seated in the row directly in front. This family was the antithesis, considerate and respectful of their fellow passengers. Susan Laws"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly, the plane was very clean. Loved the entire trip, except for our uncontrollable weather delay."
Pros: "Flight was close to being on time. I was able to get a lot of sleep on the flight."
Pros: "The selection of entertainment"
Cons: "My seats headphone connection did not work. I had to hold it and wiggle it around if I wanted to listen to anything."
Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Pros: "simple easy boarding. Jumbo 747 is always a nice experience."
Cons: "The crew was rude."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable for a long jet ride. Helpful and considerate flight attendants."
Cons: "The strange windows that kept it looking like night out until 30 minutes before we landed. I prefer the natural light to help readjust my time zones."
Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "My economy window seat was just too cramped for a big guy on a nine hour flight"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Leg space was cramped. Parking was very far.food"
Pros: "Australian airports are wonderful."
Pros: "Food was good, crew was nice."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Button was stuck in so I couldn't keep the seat up. Also a light was stuck in the on position for the entire flight not allowing people to sleep."
Pros: "Purchased an extra 3" of leg room, which helped tremendously being that my husband & I are both tall. Flight attendants were friendly, helpful & attentative. There were plenty of beverages offered. The food service was adequate. So many options on the media screens on the back of the seats. USB ports were provided on the back of every seat as well."
Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Pros: "Virgin has the nicest staff, good food, and excellent movie options. I had a great time on my flight!"
Pros: "On time, everything normal."
Cons: "Seat space so small that my knees were up against the next seat, even without it tilting back."
Pros: "Wifi worked very well"
Cons: "Jave to pay for everything on an overseas flight"
Cons: "this is not an airline, this is a bus company"
Cons: "Watch out for checked baggage fees on short haul international flights. If you buy their saver fare, VA charges you $130 to check a bag at the check-in counter. Highway robbery in my opinion! Make sure you add a bag beforehand. Corporate greed at its worst."
Pros: "Very professional crew throughout."
Pros: "It was on time, and the crew was welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "The lack of healthiness of the snack--mostly sweets."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was above average and the seats were decent"
Cons: "The attitude of the cabin crew was generally poor; at one point when I returned the post meal rubbish one member of crew commented to another on the lack of wrappers in my rubbish the other crew member replied "maybe he ate it" as this conversation took place directly behind me I assume they thought my headphones were plugged in."
Pros: "Staff excellent - Inflight screen useful."
Cons: "Could not do online Check in - apparently as there were 4 separate legs on my Ticket."
Pros: "Plane was new or newly appointed interior. Bin space very adequate. Lavatory larger than usual. Crew was friendly. Dinner choices good and quality better than norm in American carriers."
Cons: "Snack and breakfast were odd, centered somewhat on dairy products (annoying if lactose intolerant)."
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Pros: "Courteous flight attendants; good cockpit crew"
Cons: "Delays kept getting longer. On the plane for three hours before takeoff. Seat very uncomfortable -- reclining function didn't work, and no extra space -- and had paid extra for a "comfort" seat."
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Still in Detroit."
Pros: "Good service, comfortable seats and quick flight, great combination for a long trip."
Pros: "Virgin included a lot of amenities on our trans-continental flight that I don't think US-based airlines offer to people traveling in coach. We received a "care package" that included eye masks, toothbrush, toothpaste, and socks. We also received blankets & pillows. Our 3-course dinner included complimentary wine, beer, or mixed drinks. Virgin also provided a large number of entertainment options. Highly recommend Virgin for long international flights."
Cons: "Seats & leg room did not seem any better than domestic flights in the US."
Pros: "Excellent in all aspects, to and fro."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment system wasn't working well, and the flight was fairly bumpy (obviously something the airline couldn't do anything about)"
Pros: "I liked nothing, and am sorry for the time i waist it with Alitalia. Especially after not letting me use the lounge even thought I am an elite plus with skyteam and Alitalia is one of the alliance member."
Cons: "Applying the rules and respect my skyteam elite plus membership."
Pros: "Excellent dinner"
Cons: "Breakfast was dreadful"
Pros: "Snacks were okay."
Cons: "Purchased my luggage fee online and for some reason they don’t have it on their computer. Had to pay a higher price at the counter and come to find out my account still got charged for the luggage fee."
Pros: "Ground staff"
Cons: "More baggage checking counters."
Cons: "OK flight, evening Business class"
Pros: "Easy check in and easy baggage claim"
Cons: "They can easily work on the food"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and didn't feel like 9 hours! Crew handled an ill passenger in a caring and professional manner."
Cons: "Seated in the middle of four center seats, crew overlooked offering beverages/food a couple of times."
Pros: "Even though the plan was full, the boarding process was quick."
Cons: "Extremely old plain. The worst entertainment center i’ve ever seen: it was just ok for the 80’s. The crew seems to not knowing how to smile."
Pros: "People next to me"
Cons: "Seat, food , no fee for bag, and service"
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "for sure the seats, the screens and the bathrooms. the plane was soooo old!"
Cons: "The A330 really needs a makeover... Other airlines offer a better service in Business class"
Pros: "The crew was really extremely courteous - and because it's off season, there was a lot of spare space."
Cons: "The only less than perfect score was food, but the circumstances mitigate that less than stellar note. The warm meal and snack were better than your average over-sweet snack you get sometimes coming from Europe... We had a delay that may have impacted the food (if you keep warm food too long...)"
Cons: "The plane was delayed 1 hour waiting for a crew member to show up. This caused me to miss my flight to the US at DeGaulle"
Cons: "Alitalia is the worst airline company"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Disorganized confusing boarding process, tight seats in coach."
Cons: "There isn't enough space on plane to enjoy the flight, it was more of, you have to go from one location to another. If it was more than 2 hours, I would have hated it even more."
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: "The flight itself was pleasant."
Cons: "The trip was apparently booked as a flight to Madrid with a one-night stopover in Milan and yet the ticketing staff told me that I would not be able to check my bag to Milan since it would go directly to Madrid. I found this to be very odd since I booked a multi-city flight through Kayak. I was also unable to use TSA pre-check with Alitalia, which was inconvenient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. People/staff was not that friendly. I considered switching flight times, but the options were limited and it would have required me to purchase a new ticket. The fair was relatively inexpensive, but did not include checked bag and in the end was more expensive than other carrier options."
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: "we arrived on time, left on time. The crew was nice and looked after everyone."
Cons: "Boarding was late again, 25 minutes this time Seats are Too Tight"
Pros: "As expected. Crew was excellent."
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."
Cons: "My flight cancelled. I waited 3hours in the flight. They said they provide the bus instead of flight. Now, I waiting 2 hours for they provide bus."
Pros: "A cancelled flight, bankruptcy, no refund, no one answered through phone."
Cons: "you have to show all the empty seats at check in. I have bought a seat for 90$ and it was empty seats near me"
Cons: "Horrible experience with Alitalia. They boarded us on a plane that had a wheel issue, and kept us on the ground for 2 hours before they decided to de-plane us. We then had to wait in a 5+ HOUR LINE to get rerouted (nope, they won't handle these issues online or over the phone, you have to wait in line). And THEN they wanted us to wait in a 2 hour line to re-drop off our bags. We got stuck overnight in Rome and were put in a horrible Hilton Garden Inn and barely made it in time to use our coupon for a "free meal" (aka, frozen meatballs and stale bread in a buffet that had been sitting out all night). On our flight back, the food was absolutely terrible, the movie selections were old and scarce, and the seats were uncomfortable. We called to complain as soon as we got home and still have not heard back from Alitalia. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Had problem with luggage, did not like food specifically cheese on dark bread sandwich, did not like going to gate but would need to climb stairs and get shuttle to plane"
Cons: "Although reservations for our return flight from Rome to Boston were made 5 months ago, we were bumped from our flight, not advised in advance, and missed several important work engagements. The management at the Alitalia desk at the airport was not up to the task of reassigning everyone. Understaffed and under equipped (staff was unable to get online to reschedule and re-issue new boarding passes) We are senior travelers (75 and 80 years old) and were forced to stand in lines for 3 hours We're headed to the airport now, the next day, and I am dreading the experience."
Pros: "Almost nothing"
Cons: "- Rude crew - Uncomfortable seats - Broken seats - Missed our order for Vegan meals"
Cons: "Read above."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and smooth"
Cons: "Food was substandard Leg space very crummy"
Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "The flight attendant at the check in said our luggage was too big and needed to be checked. We got a ticket from her but when we got to the plane nobody said anything and we simply did what we had done all the previous flights we have ever taken, we stowed them in the overhead bins. The flight wasn't full and in fact some overhead bins were completely empty, but I guess she had her job to do and thought it wouldn't fit, but maybe she could have asked if we had used it before. I don't know why they say it's too big when we had been traveling throughout Europe for almost a month and had taken it on 4-5 flights and many other trips. It all worked out. Footnote Air France never made a issue of the exact same baggage that Alitalia said was to big. The bags fit fine on all airlines we have traveled. The flight was delayed 45 minutes which made my connection a bit tight. I was connecting to Air France which is part of The SkyTeam alliance comprises with Alitalia but my luggage could not be moved to the Flight to LAX so I had to get the bag I did check and go through the process all over again."
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived 35 minutes early. The flight crew was very helpful onboard."
Cons: "Tried to upgrade my elderly parents to more comfortable seats when checking in, but was told the flight was full and there were none available. It didn't appear that way after being boarded and seated."
Pros: "My checked bag did not show up in Prague"
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."
Pros: "The food was great and they provide plenty and the entertainment was awesome"
Cons: "The comfort of the flight for 10 hours in economy was horrible: it's just to cramped. I would only fly first class in the future for long flights. For a better idea: I'm only 5'2 and 160lbs."
Cons: "No room and very uncomfortable"
Cons: "My luggage was not loaded on the aircraft! I have NO clothes for a special event! Unacceptable!"
Pros: "Check-in was great both coming and going."
Cons: "Food was easily the worst I've ever had. Staff were courteous but not friendly on board. Boarding in Rome was a free for all. Seats were extremely cramped. Bathrooms were not kept clean. The coup de grace, probably not Alitalia's fault, but JFK"s , we sat on the terminal after we landed for 45 minutes waiting for a place to park the plane."
