Top airlines flying Washington to Palermo Punta Raisi
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth take off and landing and generous on things to eat and drink."
Cons: "None. Keep up the good work."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The aircraft looked new. However the seat widths seemed small. Awkward recline as well. The seats were just not comfortable."
Pros: "The in flight service was fantastic. The attendants were friendly and always smiling. The pilots flew the plane with Swiss precision. I had an economy ticket and they fed us twice and had at least six beverage passes to keep you hydrated. A blanket, pillow and ear buds were provided as part of the seat. Norwegian Air does not even cover a glass of water. They are pathetic. We will travel with Swiss Air again."
Cons: "Internet service is invoiced by the megabyte and not the flight. For flights of this duration, a lump sum is a better idea."
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"
Pros: "the CREW WAS FRIENDLY AND CELEBRATING EASTER WITH THE GUESTS"
Cons: "THE FOOD WAS ADEQUATE, GIVEN THAT WE WERE ON AN AIRPLANE"
Pros: "Very short flight so pretty standard."
Cons: "The flight attendants and employees at the airport seemed completely miserable. I heard flight attendants telling passengers on multiple occasions that because the flight was short they couldn’t help them."
Pros: "Swiss is always excellent"
Pros: "Professional courteous staff"
Cons: "Tray table slid downward whenever it was opened. Headphones quit after the first hour and got scratchy. So little room..tiny video screen. I could not get advance seating because of a code share flight."
Pros: "There wasn't much that stood out as likable. The food was pretty good."
Cons: "The plane was too hot. I asked multiple times throughout the flight for the temperature to be reduced, and it was not. I was wearing light jeans and a short sleeve shirt, and I was sweating all flight. Each time I asked throughout the duration of the flight, I was told it take a while for the temperature to decline. It's one thing to be uncomfortably warm on a flight; it's another thing when the flight crew lies to you. Further, I was not the only one to request that the temperature be reduced. This made an 11 hour flight particularly miserable."
Cons: "Seat would not recline. Long fight cramped 27B"
Pros: "Food service is adequate."
Cons: "Standard complaint, but economy seats are way to squeezed in!"
Pros: "787 is an excellent plane and I could sleep a little"
Cons: "I was boarding at gate C4. Doesn't anyone get it ! Using the word "bomb" in airports is a big no-no however C4 is OK? Even a little old lady knows what C4 stands for."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly on the rebooked flight the next day through Vienna to Newark USA. The flight on Austrian airlines was quite comfortable, good food and entertainment for the long flight. Boarding and deboarding all very smooth. Very helpful SWISS staff helped locate our luggage when we missed connecting flight the previous day."
Cons: "Thunderstorm at Zurich caused delay of our flight into Zurich, and we missed original connecting flight to USA. Many other travelers affected and there were no other flights that day. One wonders if they could have held the flight for one hour or so to allow everyone to make the flight. There was a huge line, 2-3 hours of waiting, at SWISS transfer desk to rebook. It took another 2 hours to locate our luggage. I believe SWISS were required by EU regs to provide overnight accommodations and meals. But the hotel was 30+ km from the airport and we were not confident we would have transport in the morning to make our rebooked flight. Because we could not take the chance already being delayed by a day, we booked an airport hotel at our own expense. Overall experience of the missed connection was negative based on the airline's (SWISS) procedures, but the individual SWISS staff helping us were all helpful and made extra effort to accommodate."
Pros: "Punctuality, onboard service and the food served were all very good. Their app is very practical, no need to go to the counter except for dispatch of luggage."
Pros: "Nice breakfast treat and chocolate is always appreciated"
Cons: "Not a specific complaint about this flight but boarding in general is not smooth No online check-in that I could find."
Cons: "I felt like a sardine."
Pros: "They waited for us. We came in late and had to connect to this flight and they waited the 10 min for me and 8 other passengers. Very grateful for that. Service and food was amazing!"
Pros: "Arrived safe"
Cons: "Packed in like sardines on an overnight flight. Awful food. Cheap fair seemed like a bargain until you find out that you have to pay an extra charge for the dubious privilege of reserving a seat way back in the 34th row."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Check in at Nuremberg terrible"
Pros: "Boardoing 7h10; 7h25 announcement we would arrive on time 8h50. No further announcement, late departure. Arrival 9h25. - mo explanation. Luggage only at 9h50"
Cons: "space at my feet!"
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived a bit early."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "The next best thing to the hard-working and kind crew was the lighting design. Meals were OK, and I was delighted that the vegan meals I ordered for my travel companion were right there as ordered. Not a common occurrence of late, I’m afraid, so I congratulate Swiss one getting this one right."
Cons: "Legroom is non-existent. This was by far the most uncomfortable aircraft I have ever flown on, with the possible exception of an Ilyushin 62 operated by Tarom in 1983. I felt bad for the man in front of me, with my knees in his back. That is, until he reclined his seat and put my video screen in my face. Not much to watch anyway, but it was impossible to lean forward at all. Boarding at JFK was rather chaotic."
Cons: "4-hour delay, followed by announcement of boarding gate, but nobody at security, necessitating weary travelers needing to leave the boarding area to go back out and through security again. On board, I was very uncomfortable, but responsibility primarily not the airlines, but due to seat mate. However, there was a chill wind blowing directly on my face for two hours."
Pros: "Food was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "One of our seat back entertainment units did not work. The attendants tried to reset it twice, but it did not help."
Pros: "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: "Great flight, happy to have service from Zurich to Nis."
Cons: "Very narrow seats. Seat in front reclines in your face. Terrible experience for 100% full long haul flight from LAX to ZRH"
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Seating is too tight and uncomfortable and I'm only 5'6"!"
Pros: "Excellent pilot, very smooth fly and landing, good comunication, friendly , good food, nice crew,"
Cons: "A little more water, and too little nag wait in Zurich for connecting flight"
Pros: "What I liked is that they didn't really focus on the weight I had little more weight and they didn't really make an issue for me"
Cons: "Geneva airport is so busy on the weekend I had to stay in the line for 20 minutes it's a little annoying"
Pros: "The Crew was wonderful."
Pros: "The friendly and attentive crew helped me from boarding to disembarking. Swiss' service in general is outstanding. I highly recommend them for flights to Europe."
Cons: "Cons: They never reduced their fares & surcharges after fuel prices came down this spring; and to add insult to injury, they started charging a $ 29.- seat reservation fee. Loyal customers should not have to pay extra fees! Peter (86)"
Pros: "Terrific flight. All on schedule"
Pros: "Nothing distinguishes itself for better or worse than usual in coach."
Pros: "Food, service, beverages, film selection."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled. Had to sleep in Zurich overnight. Airline covered the hotel and dinner bill though"
Cons: "Next morning the flight was delayed . Lost time in Rome and a night in Rone hotel"
Pros: "Gate changes and delays boarding made getting food between flights an impossibility. On board food was appreciated but was a snack and in 12+ hours travelling this made it tough."
Cons: "Delayed boarding due to overheated plane, when we did board it was still warm and we had to sit longer due to other mechanical issues. Wish they would have waited for all issues to be resolved before boarding."
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew"
Cons: "There was no inflight entertainment of any kind."
Pros: "That I was able to get the front seat with the extra legroom at no extra charge. I also liked that the take off and landing were smooth. As was the flight in general. Also, the Swiss chocolate was good."
Cons: "The seats are so narrow and uncomfortable! The overnight flight from Boston to Zurich was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever experienced. There is no legroom. And the seats are incredibly narrow. When the person in front of me had their seat reclining I had even less room. Horrible. The only reason the flight from Zurich to Boston wasn't quite as bad was because I was able to get the seat by the exit aisle with extra legroom. The food was terrible. It didn't taste like real food. It looked and tasted totally artificial. Overall, a very poor experience."
Cons: "Same situation with the food. I was given Molley's special food. Then I was given a cold croissant. That was it. Lufthansa gives little sandwiches."
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Direct answer is "nothing"; however, it should be noted that this not a Swiss Air flight. It was a code share on a United Airlines flight."
Pros: "very short flight but good and timely. nothing bad to say!"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "3 hour delay Noisy cabin due to loud engines One could hardly heard the movie audio from the Headphones during movie viewing even after they were replaced"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and made a bad situation as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 3 hours for a issue with the pilot's chair. The movies reset in the middle of the showing."
Pros: "Courteous crew, good food."
Cons: "The beer selection could use some work."
Pros: "Wonderful, friendly staff. Can't say that enough. Food was pretty good, and I really appreciate the small gestures throughout. Love going direct from SFO to Zurich."
Cons: "All airlines are doing this—we're seated closer and closer together, but the seats are the same. They recline just as much, and the screens pivot as little. And when you have screens that darken at an angle, when the person in front of you leans back, not only is their head in your lap, but you can't see your screen at all. I hate that it's on passengers to decide that it's rude to lean back, when it's the function of the chair. Besides, barely anyone considers it rude. So I was uncomfortable and cramped (and yes, I asked the kid in front of me if she would please move her chair up just a little bit as a favor, but she said she leaned back because the guy in front of her leaned back). Nice kid. I'm not a big guy. Finally home with a horrible neck cramp and a sore tailbone."
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: "The crew was not grntle"
Pros: "Easy check in and easy baggage claim"
Cons: "They can easily work on the food"
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: "on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "price for baggage, water is only “service” on board"
Pros: "The site was convenient and comfetable"
Cons: "The A330 really needs a makeover... Other airlines offer a better service in Business class"
Cons: "Um avião velho, com estrurura ultrapassada de entretenimento poderia ao menos ter uma comida um pouco mais adequada e espaço para as pernas compatível com as aeronaves atuais."
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...)"
Pros: "nice crew on the Rome to US leg"
Cons: "Airline food is usually bad but this was inedible. Tiniest seats ever. Outdated entertainment selection. Obscene baggage fees. Never ever again- not worth the ‘deal’"
Cons: "Everything was good."
Cons: "It was delayed by 4 hours"
Pros: "We traveled the same way back but with Air France instead, which was a joy. This aircraft was uncomfortable"
Pros: "All was well but missed my bag and one opened"
Cons: "Missed my baggage and one was opened and wrapping removed"
Pros: "good onboard service"
Cons: "the business class wasnt really so good to my expectation."
Cons: "We were traveling with my 94-year-old grandfather who needed wheelchair assistance. And it took the 4th person I asked to get any assistance. The very first Alitalia person I tried to speak to was the very worst. Though her job was to check people in, she said she couldn't help me and to go to another counter. When I asked if she could please at least make a call to get a wheelchair (my grandfather was at the airport entry and couldn't walk) she made a terrible face, threw the papers on her desk around and said I had to go to another counter. When I went to the counter she pointed at, I was told again I would have to go to another counter. No offense to dog owners, but the animals that were traveling received better assistance."
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: "Short trip from Rome to Milan"
Pros: "short peaceful ride. Not much food could be served."
Cons: "Really bad boarding controll, contributing to grumpy patrons. Just poor management and efficiency created by the airlines with a last minute gate change, but in addition, the personnel were irratable and not well motivated or trained to manage the crowd."
Pros: "Not much. Mediocre everything. Was nice that the flight was not very full."
Cons: "This was an Alitalia flight. Food was awful, flight attendants were quite rude and curt. Really poor experience overall."
Pros: "we arrived on time, left on time. The crew was nice and looked after everyone."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Boarding started 20 minuets late"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant there were many seats vacant"
Cons: "Flight boarding starte 25 minuets late"
Pros: "The flight itself from NYC was great, the connection flight was great."
Cons: "The worst boarding process I ever seen! The airport people and crew didn’t tell people what’s going on, there was a uhh delay. Big lines of people just standing and waiting. The flight took off 45 min late!!"
Cons: "The seats were terrible for me ( i’m 6.4 194 c’m broad) although we paid extra $95 /seat I approached Torresin Lorella Chief purser , she was helpless , and from that moment I never saw her till the end of the flight. i really want my money back ! Her entire management of the service was very poor compared to other airlines Zvi and Judith Yaniv"
Pros: "Ok ok."
Cons: "Our bag out of luggage was missing and more than 24 hours there was no action. We were left helpless as due to Easter everything was closed and could not arrange any alternative."
Pros: "legroom, service, boarding, meals"
Pros: "Easy boarding on time nice crew"
Pros: "Boarding and in-flight crew very polite and professional."
Cons: "you have to show all the empty seats at check in. I have bought a seat for 90$ and it was empty seats near me"
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."
Cons: "Lost our luggage from Rome to Malta. Now, 13 hours after arrival in Malta, no one can tell us where our luggage is!!"
Pros: "Short flight crew was very friendly. Not many passengers so crew let us move around"
Pros: "Really comfy headrests and blankets. Easiest plane I've slept on by far."
Cons: "Headset wasn't working so I could watch tv or listen to music."
Pros: "Almost nothing"
Cons: "- Rude crew - Uncomfortable seats - Broken seats - Missed our order for Vegan meals"
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: "Really old plane, nasty food and rude flight attendants."
Cons: "We had booked a weekend getaway, first the returned flight was cancelled and changed for a later one that didn't work for us (we couldn't get to work on time), we managed to change that for another flight the day before, shortening our vacation, then, when we got to the airport, an hour before boarding, we find out there, without warning, that the outgoing flight had been cancelled! This time it wasn't automatically changed, and there was no warning, the only solution they were giving us was an afternoon flight the other day, shortening our weekend getaway even more. After half an hour of discussion, they found and earlier flight, with connection, double the time, but that would get us there at around 2pm, so still we were missing almost half a day, but that was the best they could do. The flight was OK, boarding was late, but hey, that seems to always be the experience with this type of flights. I would just say they are not very reliable, having both your outbound and inbound flights cancelled, seems to much, specially if you're just going for a short getaway, you may end up having a one-day getaway!"
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: "They forgot my luggage but knew exactly where it was was and got it to me the next evening."
Pros: "My checked bag did not show up in Prague"
Pros: "The crew was great. Very attentive"
Cons: "No entertainment. Food was ok. Seats not comfortable for business class."
Cons: "90 minute delay on a 110 minute flight!"
Cons: "flight was over 30 minutes late which is unacceptable for a 1:55 flight!!!!"
Cons: "No room and very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The plane never arrive on time, Talked with customer service and was told that I can carry 60 pound of luggage and when I arrived with 59 pound luggage to check in I had to pay overweight. The flight was late again so I missed the connection flight."
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."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and efficient."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and did their best to help. The flight was on time and arrived early."
Cons: "AZ 316 FCO-CDG, Feb. 1, 2017, Economy. On its Airbus A320 Alitalia has a new section with "Premium Seats". This was done at the cost of the non-premium economy seats. Pitch is unacceptable. When the food cart came I had the back of the seat in front of me 15 cm (5 in) from my forehead. I told the attendants "even cattle could not be handled like that". They commiserated and said "with the changes the we are truly going through rough times." They reseated me to an exit row. Getting a boarding pass online is also a new, unfortunate experience. I have a Platinum Card of AF/KL, which means Elite Plus in Skyteam parlance. My ticket, sold by KL, had an AF flight number. Alitalia pretends now to sell piece by piece all the advantages that are attached to the status (e.g; €8 for early boarding...). The airport personnel confirmed that the system does not allow to print the words "Skyteam Priority" or '"ELP" (for Elite Plus) on the boarding pass. They encouraged me to write to the Powers-that-be that decided to make these user-unfriendly changes. I think that Alitalia, as a Skyteam member, had signed the agreements; they have not rescinded their membership, why don't they just apply the rules? Food: a tiny portion of pop-corn! I couldn't believe it. I will avoid henceforth to fy Alitalia."
Pros: "The experience was as good as one can expect a quick flight to be."
