Cons: "Legspace in economy class was probably good back in 1975, but in 2019 not acceptable anymore"

Pros: "This was a 12 hour flight that didn’t feel like 12 hours. They movies and other entertainment was very good with new and older movies that didn’t disappoint. The food was great all the way through to the farewell piece of chocolate."
Cons: "The seats on this flight were very tight. I am 5’8 and felt super cramped. The seats themselves were not that bad just small and not a lot of space. If you fly with them don’t expect to kee anything under the seat with you. Also the whole boarding process is a big cluster! There is no real organization to the line or who they are boarding. Make sure you get in the line quickly or you could be waiting awhile."

Pros: "Service on Swiss Air is great!"
Cons: "No TSA checkin at Newark."

Cons: "Pleasant overall experience"

Pros: "Good, in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "There must be a way for crew to intervene and help parents with screaming infants or disruptive children. The flight noise/comfort was miserable"

Cons: "2.5 hour delay, missed connection, arrived more than 5 hours after originally planned. Entertainment system did not function. Crew did not collect garbage/unused items prior to landing and I was holding garbage in my hands during landing (and some spilled on my lap)."

Pros: "the premium economy section was very pleasant, well worth the $150 upgrade price. Though they should have included priority boarding."
Cons: "One hour delay in boarding, two hours sitting on the tarmac due to cargo loading and overweight issues. No notices, very poor communication."

Pros: "The attendants and food were wonderful. One attendant gave me ice for my swollen ankle"
Cons: "Cramped in economy"

Cons: "This is ever the first time we flew with Swiss air and will be the last time. The seats are too tight. If the person in front of you inclined his chair for better comfort, then there is quite challenging for you trying to get out of your seat for washroom etc. The crew services were terrible. Between meals time, there were completely no services such as offering water/drink etc.-did not see a single soul of them, especially on a 9 hours long haul flight! The food was ok. The only thing I like was the chocolate handed out at the end of the journey."

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: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."

Cons: "Leg room."

Pros: "Very comfortable and attendants were very attentive."
Cons: "Checking in at the Tel Aviv Airport is an absolute nightmare! It is congested and disorganized."

Pros: "Thank you for the sandwich!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "They served food! I have been on competitor flights that were twice as long and would have had to pay for every single beverage or food. In Swiss on a 50 minutes flight I got a complimentary chocolate, a crossaint and beverage service. Amazing. The crew also has been very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Landing in Zürich has been the bumpiest landing I have ever had. I believe that is due to the location and weather conditions but felt like the pilots also did not exactly react the way it should have been."

Cons: "No USB charger in seat"

Pros: "I liked the service, the food, the entertainement, the super kind personel, would only fly with them :) Thank you!"

Pros: "I did not take this flight. I had to change my itinerary to accommodate a change in my work commitments and tried to cancel this flight but was unable."
Cons: "I am never ordering a ticket through your services again. And I will certainly advise friends and colleagues against doing so. Your customer service is execrable. This is the second time in a year that I have had to spend hours of time in an attempt to cancel a flight and have lost the full ticket cost because of all your terms and conditions and fine (=unfindable, unreadable) print. The lack of transparency regarding baggage fees is outrageous. I have had to pay hundreds of dollars in such fees after having had no such notice - and no inkling - that that would be the case. We call this a "racket" in the United States."

Pros: "I never used Swiss Airline before but my friends told me crews are very professional and clean... She is right!!!Their crews, Foods, and very clean environments.... had a wonderful experiences"

Cons: "Should be clear whether meals contain nuts."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Terrible flight had to delay few times , we had to wait inside in the plane for more than 2 hours , they had me to check im my carry on in geneva layover even i had a personla stuff inside and with no lock , rude crew i never even fly with suiss i had toncome back with lugthansa because they had to delay the flight again"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "I loved everything"

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."

Cons: "No video screens at the seats or any entertainment."

Pros: "Good service... Quick boarding"
Cons: "Older plane, seats too narrow and short for 11hr flight. Bathrooms are TINY even by airline standards. Entertainment system has lots of choices but screens are low quality."

Pros: "Airline attendants were very polite and nice."
Cons: "Older plane, arm rests did not go up all the way, and missed landing on the initial approach to Newark, which delayed landing for another 20 minutes."

Pros: "Short flight was fine."

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: "This was simply the best flying experience I have ever had in my life! From the courteous,professional and always available cabin crew to the comfort of the seat,from the quality of the food to the cleanliness of the craft, everything was just perfect. I traveled in economy class but it felt like king. I will make sure to fly SWISS again!Great great job!"

Pros: "Very professional service throughout this international flight. Flight attendants were friendly and helpful."

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: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Seat was moved into a middle seat. I was very uncomfortable for the flight. Crew member granted someone else seat change before mine and i asked first. Very upsetting flight."

Pros: "Service was great, very polite crew. The food was so far the best comparing with other airlines I flew with. Planes were clean."
Cons: "The flight arrived with delay in Istanbul. The connecting flight was delayed as well. Hopefully I won’t experience that on the way back. One of the passengers said that flights are always delayed when arriving to Istanbul waiting for gates."

Cons: "It took over an hour for Business class bags to come out. Not sure why I paid for business class if they don't know to offload them first in Dubai. Really ruined the first experience with Turkish Air."

Pros: "Easy booking on Kayak! Good service overall."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, it was really hot! Not enough air conditioners."

Cons: "Seats are too cramped and not enough leg room. Plus our seats did not recline which is painful on a 10 hour flight. The flight attendants and front desk workers had an attitude as well."

Pros: "Crew were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Seats were especially cramped and tight and leg room was uncomfortable and I am a short person."

Pros: "Everything- hot moist wash rags & overnight kit were luxury touches."

Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Great service, polite."
Cons: "A bit slow serving food."

Pros: "Entertainment, flight times, price, new plane, good luxury, in between meals food offering"
Cons: "Cleanliness of bathrooms, seat room, bumby landing, no involvement from the pilot to the passenger it was like he was too good to speak to passengers and update on weather conditions, welcome greetings, landing details etc. overfilled flights."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "El servicio del personal a bordo fue muy bueno. La comida me pareció de buen sabor. El boarding se puede hacer desde el lounge."
Cons: "El chreck in en el aeropuerto de IAD no me gustó. Abre a las 7:10 para el vuelo de las 11."

Pros: "Turkish Airlines remains my favorite - boarding process is organized, seats are comfortable, food is good, and crew is friendly and helpful."

Pros: "I liked everything"

Pros: "I loved the bendable headrests. Olives and cheeses are different airplane food and really nice. Plentiful blankets and pillows."
Cons: "They didn't have any child-sized headphones available for my daughter."

Pros: "Crew were exceptionally warm and pleasant, and made me feel more than welcome onboard."
Cons: "This was one of the worst days of my life, health-wise, so it could be that my observation of the passage of time was somewhat distorted, but Turkish did everything either slowly, or more slowly on this day. First, name two things on a flight line that are wheeled, movable objects. Did you answer bus and plane? Well done. So if both bus AND plane are theoretically mobile, why then must I endure a long walk AND a long bus ride? Boarding was an hour-long event, probably due again to inefficient ground services. I fell asleep and woke up twice before it was over."

Pros: "The food and crew service"
Cons: "The leg room is really limited in the economy cabin"

Cons: "I booked my flight with Turkish Airlines for June 28th at 11:05 pm. A few hours before my flight, there were bombings in the airport in Istanbul, which was where I was flying into. I tried for hours to contact Turkish Airlines and their phone was disconnected. I could not reach anyone to try to re-schedule a new flight or to ask if the flight was going to be re-directed. I received no information and ended up having to book a new flight for the next day. After my flight had already left Turkish Airlines posted on their website an alert. I am shocked that it took so long to post any information and I am very upset that I was unable to reach customer service. I will NOT be choosing this airline to fly on again."

Pros: "The company gave us a hotel for the layover."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"

Cons: "Absulotely nothing."

Cons: "Rude stewardess"

Pros: "This was my first time flying with Turkish Airlines, and I had a great experience. I travel internationally a lot and it has been by far the best airline I have been on. I love flights that give you a hot towel when you arrive, so that was a big plus in my book. The flight stewards were so helpful both on and off the flight. The food was delicious. Movie selections were freat ad well."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The planes were clean and staff really helpful. The actual flights were great."
Cons: "At Istanbul the staff in the airport were confused about where the gate was and we missed our flight and then we had to purchase new tickets. And they did not honor our original tickets. That was almost 900 dollars gone because they would not honor our tickets. I am hoping for a refund."

Pros: "Food was good. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Other than what I've mentioned below, everything was great."

Pros: "Care and attention the flight attendance showed."

Pros: "The crew and food were excellent! Movie choices were plentiful!"

Pros: "Comfortable. Excellent service"

Pros: "Had a one hour delay without justification,but ended up landing in Douala first before Yaounde. Arrived at 4:30 am instead of 12:005am. Lost my bag up till now not seen."

Cons: "Very long lines and long waiting time to check in."

Pros: "Everything was very good"

Pros: "Food was pretty good and the inflight movie selection was robust."
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to weather but the cancelation wasn't communicated until I actually arrived at the airport. This isn't customary. Most airlines inform travelers ahead of time. Rescheduling the flight took two days and multiple calls to their customer service number which wasn't receiving calls for a full 24hrs due to call volume. Was finally placed on a new flight but the flight had a 24hr layover in Istanbul (my previous flight didn't), forcing me to pay out of pocket for food and lodging in Turkey."

Cons: "We had long line in boarding"

Pros: "The space we currently have."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and engaging"
Cons: "I wiped down my seat area to clean it. It would be nice to know what Delta is doing as well."

Cons: "They lost my bags. Unacceptable"

Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Food somewhat expensive..... boarding off the plane - ones with no baggage should get off first then more control about everybody getting in the aisles trying to get their luggage and holding everybody up"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "the seats are horribly squished and uncomfortable. It’s the only thing that makes the flight not excellent"

Pros: "Thanks for the monitors."

Cons: "Late departure"

Pros: "Everything about delta"

Cons: "Crew was grouchy and rushed past you without really trying to cater to your needs/ get you what you want."

Pros: "Airbus was nice"
Cons: "Delayed by over 1 1/2 hours"

Pros: "Efficient, cheerful crew"
Cons: "Stop making seats smaller! The added revenue from 10 squeezed seats is not worth the discomfort it causes."

Pros: "I got to board early because I volunteered to check my carry-on. Very friendly flight attendants. Love flying delta. They are always consistent and the movies they offer with the gogo in-flight app are always updated and recently released popular movies."

Pros: "Excellent"

Cons: "No entertainment and no place to charge devices."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the flight was on time."

Pros: "Excellent"

Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable"

Cons: ". The flight was overbooked and I had to wait for last minute to find out weather I will be on board of the flight .My bags were left behind in Amsterdam which were delivered later than they were supposed to."

Pros: "Smooth flight, on-tome departure"
Cons: "Service in business class left a little more to be desired. I had to ask for food and drinks, because I feel off to sleep in the first round. Came to Gate early, but had to wait for agent to put the jet bridge. Only one person was available."

Cons: "Hassel about getting a visa to Cambodia. Refused to give me a boarding pass for 2nd and 3 rf leg of trip. Korean Air had no problems giving me yhe passes. Otter people had Delta boarding passes shivh they traded for Korran Aiir passes but the got better seats. Food was very good"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "No complain"

Pros: "Great service all around. As comfortable as you can get for a domestic flight."
Cons: "Food was pretty good, but not up to their usual high standards"

Pros: "I had the opportunity to send my carry on to the final destination. The flight was overbooked and there was no place to put carry on on the top place."
Cons: "I did not have the chance to choose my seat. I traveled sandwiched by two overweighted guys. I was holding my arms and was literally compressed by the gentlemen. Horrible experience. If I had the chance to choose my seat I would pick the corridor, and had a little less embarrassment and sweating."

Cons: "Delta staff is not too friendly"

Pros: "Seating"
Cons: "The re route to MSP... Seven hour flight time for a two and half hour flight..."

Pros: "Flights were on time boarding was easy. 2nd crew from ATLANTA was friendly."

Pros: "This trip into Merida was amazing from start to finish. Something was lost in translation with my handicap assistance in Atlanta, but the trip was lovely nonetheless."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentative."
Cons: "The amount of delays causing us to miss our connection and be stuck in another city for a night before getting to our destination the next day(hopefully)."

Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."

Pros: "There was a threat in the airport which caused the closure of one terminal. It happened to be the one from which this flight was due to depart. The crew was calm and able to get everyone on board with a minimum delay, considering the circumstances. The flight crew made up some time in the air and we were able to land less than 30 minutes after our original ETA. Well done, Delta."

Pros: "Smooth and easy."
Cons: "Not applicable"

Pros: "People"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The staff"

Pros: "I had to take a United flight last week for a short flight and once again I was reminded why I ALWAYS fly Delta if at all possible. United crew hid in the galley the whole trip wit lititle to no interaction with passengers. My flight today on Delta was great; food really excellent (Chicken Tika) and the crew was great as usual. Delta remains the best."

Pros: "Efficient boarding. Friendly service."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The leg room and freedom of not having another seat in front of me throughout this flight was great. It made getting comfortable a lot easier."
Cons: "We couldn't hear the overhead announcements at all. Seated right next to the turbine intake on the wing made the amount of ambient noise especially high, so all the in-flight announcements were pretty much unintelligible."

Pros: "Good seat, easy on and off, everything went a little ahead of schedule and smooth"

Pros: "I was able to pick my own flight online easily."
Cons: "Lack of same day, 1 connection, first class seats. Had to fly out the next day because only middle seats left. Frustrating because I paid for first class and had no good choices for my departure day of choice."

Pros: "The crew were AMAZING and made the flight so much better. Boarding was easy. I also love that the pilot acknowledged the Service men and women on our flight."
Cons: "The older plan didn't have some of the perks that I expected from Comfort +... No conformed headrest, no USB plugs... I paid extra for Comfort + and expected some of these things."

Pros: "Great plane"

Pros: "Staff were courteous. Captain explained reason for delay."
Cons: "Over 20 minute delay to begin boarding with no explanation. Boarding process very slow due to excess carry ones needing to be checked."

Pros: "Upgrading to First Class made it worthwhile."
Cons: "As a minority provider of service at BWI, the gate was the furthest from the entry. Gate security is almost always a source of delay here."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "After the extremely long wait to check bags which made us miss the flight, the date crew got us in another flight...it wasn't direct which is what I paid for, but they did get us out, but i missed an interview because of the lack of crew and a missing luggage."
Cons: "Checking a bag, delta did not have enough crew to get everyone thru to their flights. We waited for 80 minutes inline to check a bag. Then we ran to the gate inky to find the gate was closed less than 2 minutes before we arrived. At least 20 others also missed the plane because of the lack of crew and long lines checking bags. It was frustrating, irritating, uncaring crew checking in, and a bit rude. Then on of my checked luggage was lost enroute - which made getting off the flights even later which made me miss a meeting that I was scheduled to be at. All because you didn't have the crew needed to check in."

Pros: "...the fact that they got us on the plane and back to GRR even though the connecting flight from BWI was delayed and there was little time to make that last flight out of DTW..."

Pros: "I haven't traveled by air for a number of years, it had gotten to be so crazy at checkin. Well imagine my surprise when I was checked in within five minutes of arriving at the airport. KAYAK took care of everything. All the flights were on time, I received email updates along the way and I am so happy I'm planning my next trip already."
Cons: "Even the babies in the waiting area were quiet on the flight, which leaves nothing for me to complain about at all."

Pros: "Not enough restrooms the food was not the good mor"
Cons: "More choices for food seats not comfortable too narrow no space"

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: "2 hours Delayed and operated by United ..."

Cons: "Seats felt like Adirondack chairs..hard and no lower back support."

Pros: "The seat 16A is very comfortable and spacious. Most of the hosts were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "My screen did not function well and sound was very poor. I had to have my computer 'rebooted' two times. The second time was done by a gentleman who was a bit sarcastic when I asked if he could help me, as I had waited 20+ minutes for the help to get it going again. You need to update your system!"

Pros: "The crew was excellent and always there to help. They managed a 15min boarding due to being well organized."
Cons: "I’m 5’7 and my knees were touching the seat in front of me- there is no way to be comfortable. You pay an extravagant amount of money and get squished in there like sardines. It’s disappointing."

Pros: "Treated passengers well - even those of us in steerage. Food was excellent and entertainment options plentiful. Coach is still coach, and it’s hard to settle in for a nap. So, if arriving rested is important to you, spring for business class."

Pros: "Underseat AC power and USB power was the highlight of the trip."
Cons: "Food portions were tiny. Totally dehydrated at the end of the flight, and water was passed out in 100 mL servings. Insufficient space under the seat for a backpack."

Cons: "Missed this flight because my first flight was a cancelled flight, missed intercontinental connecting flight."

Pros: "Diner"
Cons: "Was told that an upgrade to premium economy entitled us to lounge privileges. Were told by attendants that we had to pay an extra $35. each. We had $6.30 subs from potbelly."

Pros: "I wasn't expecting free in-flight movies and meals, which were very welcome"

Cons: "Seat pocket was damaged and couldn’t be used. Food was at best mediocre. Old salad, old bread, no salt with warm meal."

Pros: "Probably one of the best economy experiences I have had in a long time. The staff was very friendly and professional. Also one of the first times that i was actually comfortable in an econo seat. Hats off to Lufthansa!"

Cons: "Seats very crowded. No leg room at all."

Cons: "After usual perfect service from Luftahansa, I noticed that my lagguage was opened and destroyed."

Pros: "Timely, friendly, clean plane"
Cons: "Food was bland!!!"

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: "A couple of flight atrendants were civil"
Cons: "Gate was changed three times immediately prior to departure. Plane was BERY small. Food was awful."

Pros: "Impecable service. Even worth flying through FRA."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything, as always, great. Keep it up."

Cons: "This particular flight was delayed beyond reaching the next sep,so we have to rebook our flight threw Chicago in uncomfortable hurry."

Pros: "Boarding was made seamless. Seating legroom always seems to be better then others I have flown with. Food seems to be better too. The flight crew is very friendly!"

Pros: "new clean aircraft."
Cons: "no breakfast."

Pros: "This was actually a United Airlines flight connecting to a Lufthansa flight in Munich. The crew was friendly and thanked us individually for flying with them as we prepared for landing."

Pros: "Everything was amazing Very pleased!"
Cons: "Good choice entertainment but system is slow to respond and crashed on a few occasions"

Cons: "It was a transatlantic flight in coach. There is no way to make that a pleasant experience. Entertainment system was down. Ran out of one dinner option."

Pros: "Excellent flight, crew, food and service."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and attentive. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "My seat back was not easy to keep in the reclining position."

Pros: "great and pleasant service, caring and helpful, frequently offered beverages, delicious vegan option, great movies selection, not much turbulence, overall like Lufthansa the best: reliable, on time,"

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: "Efficient, early check in and seat selection was simple and done from home. Got to the airport early which is unusual for me but everything went smoothly and was relatively low stress."

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."

Pros: "Late departure, full flight but good overall."

Pros: "Check in was good. Everything was orderly and on time."
Cons: "Fairly cramped for an international flight."

Pros: "flight attendants were very nice, helpful, and accountable. I wish every flight had them on their crew."

Pros: "Great service, food, crew."
Cons: "Seats too small, very uncomfortable."

Pros: "We purchase extra leg room seats which turned out not to be available. The crew understood our frustration and upgraded us to premium economy. Many thanks!"

Pros: "I love the crew, the seats, the food was wonderful and the flight was the smoothest ever. Thanks"

Pros: "Boarding was again easy, directions were clear as to where I should sit. My only trouble with the crew was that announcements were sometimes too quiet to hear at all, which I hardly cared about anyway (seat belts, please). The movie selection was unexpectedly good, as was the music section. Books were meh."
Cons: "I was not comfortable after about four hours, my biggest problem being I had already been riding in an airplane for a total of six hours that day. Food was fine, but came with salt, which was nice. I don't expect a four course meal on an airplane, but I didn't eat with gusto. The headphones provided were lousy, but I just plugged in my own set."

Pros: "I was fortunate to have a complete row (3) seats for myself; the plane was new and in excellent condition. All the staff was courteous and helpful."

Pros: "Flight not too crowded. Check in allowed us to switch seats to maximize space."
Cons: "Food was just so-so."

Pros: "Lufthansa's newest 747-8 airliner was quite the treat for international flight. 100% LED lights with subtle purple-blue mood lighting overnight looks pretty and mimics Virgin's design. Dozens of movies to choose from in addition to many more entertainmrnent options in the widescreen touchscreens. And actual silverware for food, even in economy. The addition of Premier Economy (wider and longer seats) copies the design from United's Economy Plus, at the expense of regular economy's legroom (I believe). Note: if you have noise canceling earphones or headphones like myself, get the 2-jack airline adapter. Lufthansa uses the proprietary dual-jack, at least in economy."
Cons: "Pasta dinner only had 1/8 piece tomato. Stick to the chicken."

Pros: "great service, food, and crew"
Cons: "Absolutly no negatives"

Pros: "We had a great trip -- helpful flight attendants...and no worries at all."
Cons: "DELAYED LEAVING FRANKFURT BY AN HOUR DUE TO BAD WEATHER."

Pros: "Crew, boarding, flight ahead of schedule"
Cons: "I booked Lufthansa...why was I on United?? United is a far inferior company. No food on a cross-country flight?? I was asked to pay for any more than a couple glasses of water. Really? On a 6 hour flight? I had to pay for entertainment? All my other flights it was free...feels like nickle and diming. Will not fly United again."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "lufthansa used United for this flight. probably because they run out of airplanes, they used a plane so old, I believe it was from Nixon's time. very very old. I am suprised I made it one piece to Amsterdam. So dissapointed why Lufthansa linked their name with such a poor company like United. I never fly United."

Pros: "Nothing. Our flight was delayed by 4hrs due to weather conditions at SFO."
Cons: "Same issues as per first leg of my trip - Brussels/Washington, but even more restricted seat space. There was a empty row[3 seats] empty behind me. I'm a DVT patient[got it a couple of years ago while flying back from China - didn't move during the entire flight] and need to move frequently and need legroom to stretch out my legs as much as possible when sitting. Anyway, having informed a crew member about my DVT condition, I asked if I could move in the empty area - mind you, that was after plane door was closed and boarding had been completed. She refused only to give after takeoff the area to a lady with a little dog in her purse. This flight was operated by United. Our household will from now on avoid any flight that's operated by United."

Pros: "Liked the toilets downstairs. Good selection of entertainment. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "When I checked in I was told that I could take my suitcase, which is a carry-on size suitcase, on board. While boarding I was made to check it as luggage and told it was to big and too heavy even though it weighed 12kg."

Pros: "in flight service is great, lounges are excellent, and personnel are well trained and courteous"
Cons: "that I couldn't bring my kids into the lounge"

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Wifi on klm"

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Internet"

Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"

Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"

Cons: "Boarding was crazy. Could not everyone in the gate area."

Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"
Cons: "SOME CREW MEMBERS WERE ABIT RUDE. THEY NEED TO WORK ON THEIR ATTITUDE"

Pros: "Food was great, enjoyed watching videos, staff very profession and friendly."

Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"

Pros: "Time was excellent even considering a connection delay they had. Very polite crew members. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Cabin was crowded. Leg room was scarce, short seating space. Almost no room for sleeping if you're not a frequent economy traveler."

Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"

Cons: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."

Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."

Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."

Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."

Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."

Pros: "The flight was perfect! Great food,movies and I even got to sleep !"
Cons: "All was well!"

Pros: "Time and Good clean place.. in This case airpöane.."
Cons: "It was not entreteiment st all"

Pros: "Food was excellent, service from staff was friendly, and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Not a lot of shoulder room being in the middle seat. But it had adjustments options for a lot of other things which were good."

Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."

Pros: "Arrived early!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."

Pros: "Travel on Crostian Airlines did not pappen. KLM flight to Munich was cancelled and I was rescheduled on Air Setbia to Belgrade, the Split."
Cons: "That it didn’t happen."

Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."

Pros: "Wifi on Board"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."

Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."

Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."

Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"

Pros: "Great service"

Cons: "They stole my money"

Pros: "Nice seats, comfortable."
Cons: "Again, no aisle seat for SkyTeam Gold member. Also, my baggage was lost. First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me. I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."

Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."

Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"

Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."

Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."

Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."

Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."

Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."

Pros: "delayed"

Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"

Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."

Pros: "Enough space good wine and on time"
Cons: "Nothing"
