Delayed 1 hr on departure waiting for connecting passengers Delayed for 1 1/2 hours on landing at Newark due to unavailable gates for deplaning Person sitting in front of me coughing and sneezing entire flight at times without mask

Cons: "Reckless and inconsiderate airline. The only carrier refusing to modify travel due to Covid-19 pandemic"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "The plane waited 40 minutes for delayed connecting flights to arrive. It's great for some passengers because they don't miss the transatlantic flight, but it causes others to miss their connections on the other end. It added to very stressful deplaning."
Pros: "Awful!!!"
Pros: "The expedited transfer from late flight out of Rome was an amazingly efficint process, much appreciated. Was very stressed when I thought I could not make the transfer, but Swissair really had it covered. My compliments"
Pros: "The loveliest crew possible and the easiest and most efficient connection logistics imaginable! Full praise for Swiss Air"
Pros: "nice flight"
Pros: "Seat was ok, crew was friendly"
Cons: "Movie options were limited"
Pros: "Staff, food, on board entertainment all very impressive. Great flight."
Cons: "Because we missed our connection on our incoming flight, due to a delay leaving Newark by Swiss, Swiss cancelled our returning flights. So when we got to the airport on our return day, we were not booked on any flights. We were required to stay overnight and take a United flight home. Will avoid Swiss in the future."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working"
Pros: "Though I was never sent an email for my daughter's check in, I had a different reservation for her but still under my name and same email, when I called on the phone the people were pleasant. They still never provided me with an email though and information allowing me to have my daughter checked in. they only provided me with her reference number."
Cons: "All in all we had a poor experience and my family and I were disappointed. I'm about to book yet another ticket for my brother, but this time I'm not considering Swiss Air. Just so you know, I'm a very positive person and appreciate every polite and courteous gesture. Unfortunately this experience didn't allow me to do so."
Pros: "A good airline and a good flight. Lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "Zurich is a confusing Airport, where signs are not obvious, and the queues are poorly formed. They should improve that for sure."
Pros: "The airplane was cool and the time for arriving was correct as well as easy to check in. The pilot was good and they told us who won on the World Cup tournament I liked that. There was a younger crew memeber she was reaaally nice."
Cons: "I asked when i got my ticket for a window seat and he said he gave me one but he did not in the two flights I got. I requested the crew for a window seat if possible since I had been feelin nauseated, it did not help that the guy sitting next to me had a really bad breat and smelled bad. They offered me a sit in the middle of the plane, that did not work well because I was feeling sick, being in between a big guy and a bigger lady was not going to help at all. There was an older crew member and she seemed to be kinda discussed with the trash even though she was using gloves. Food was ok but not the best. To top it off I told them that the headphones connection wasn’t working and they only brought me a pair of new headphones. I tried mine and they didn’t worked, so the whole 8 hrs of flight I was watching movies with sound only from on side. They didn’t even bother, I guess cuz I am economy? Not sure I did see some free chairs in the lanes between economy and first class but they didn’t even suggested that so I decided to suck it up and sit on my assigned chair. The bathrooms where dirty and smelled reaaally bad from the beginning that really was disgusting to be honest. I can let go many things but not that. I had to help the passenger sitting next to me cuz he didn’t know how to do anything and didn’t speak English, he was an older man, with signs I was able to show him how an airplane works. I never complain about flights but this one was tooo many little things. Oh and what about an international flight where I have to pay for a second bag! Really? I did it on my way to Europe and I thought I payed both and then I had to do it again. Whatever money I thought I could save was a lie because I ended up paying a lot more adding the bags and additional transportation for home based on the airports. I am not satisfied at all with the flight experience"
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."
Cons: "Waited for baggage at Newark for more than 45 min"
Pros: "Everything was very good. From the staff, to the food and comfort. Excellent!"
Cons: "All of it"
Pros: "The service and food are very good."
Cons: "Tight space for business class."
Pros: "Staff walked around with water quite a bit, gave my kids a special kids meal"
Cons: "A little tight in economy and i am short"
Pros: "Food is excellent... nice variety plus dessert. Everything was hot & delicious & used metal utensils which was much nicer than plastic."
Pros: "Everything was as accommodating as possible."
Pros: "Nice staff and inflight service. seats were great"
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "Large person next to me spilled over into my seat. Large people should sit with folks like themselves"
Pros: "on time, good food, pleasant service"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to technical problems, and they immediately gave each person 20 Francs towards dinner while in the terminal- which was very nice. The aircraft itself was impeccably clean, even though it had already carried passengers elsewhere earlier in the day. The service was fantastic, and you can never go wrong with free chocolate."
Pros: "Outstanding service. Friendly flight attendants."
Pros: "Legroom is too little"
Pros: "Food a, entertainment and crew were really good!"
Cons: "Boarding was chaose and seats were tight."
Pros: "The flight attendants are great and their aircraft are very clean and comfortable. I especially appreciated the request for passengers to raise their seat backs during meal times."
Pros: "Food was tasty and of decent proportions, entertainment, while somewhat limited in selection, contained a number of compelling movies bar I enjoyed. I had a bulkhead seat, which was exceedingly comfortable"
Cons: "USB port was broken in the seat, but enjoyed the entertainment offered that I didn't need it."
Pros: "Best flight crew experience ever"
Cons: "The seats are too close together front to back. It's torture if you are six feet tall and the person in front of you put the seat in the back position for 8 hours."
Pros: "Attention to details from flight attendants"
Cons: "The food was not to my liking except for the crackers, ice cream and water!!"
Pros: "Crew, food...."
Cons: "As I said before..."
Cons: "On the flight to Zurich the passenger behind me gave me a difficult time about reclining my seat back but keep in mind he had his reclined. Coming back to Newark the gentleman behind my boyfriend made a comment how he didn't have room due to his seat being reclined. The passenger next to us was arguing with the passenger in front of her because she didn't want that person to recline their seat back. I have never experienced such rude people on a flight and I realize this is beyond your control. It made for a very uncomfortable and stressful flight. Maybe signs can be posted or a message when booking your flight that ALL passengers have a right to recline seats and if space is an issue for your comfort then upgrade to business class for more room."
Pros: "Everything except the earphones was great"
Cons: "The earphones are bad and connector is 2 pins, so couldn't use mine."
Cons: "Unorganized and hectic at the gate; personnel were rude and unhelpful. I was asked numerous times to Leave and let them do their work" when I asked why I was on standby and what that meant."
Cons: "Better seats"
Cons: "Sound for on-screen entertainment not working. It was static-y all the time and completely cut out the rest of the time. I made various attempts to solve the problem, switching headphones, switching to my own headphones (which can't really be done because they have a two-prong jack and personal headphones are always one). I tried watching different movies, programs, music...it wasn't the material I was watching that was the problem. I asked the flight attendant to reset my console. That didn't work either. I just ended up reading my book the entire 9 hour trip."
Pros: "Food, service"
Cons: "Room in economy"
Pros: "This direct flight from Zurich-Newark is pretty comfortable, especially if you get the two seats at the either sides of the plane (it's a 2x4x2 config in Coach). The food is really good, they are generous with drinks and the crew is really friendly and smiling! Would take this flight again without any reservations in future!"
Pros: "I was supposed to visit my father who was just put in a nursing home for a few days and the day of my flight I received an email from Swiss that they had rebooked me for the next day! So frustrating! The trip would have gotten so short that it wasn't worth it so I had to reschedule it 6 weeks out. It got my dad really upset! Thank god his health is stable at the moment."
Cons: "Delay and lost the luggage for the second time"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours at airport with no explanation why and little compensation for the experience."
Pros: "The food was delivered fast. The meals were delicious, especially the chicken and polenta. I also appreciated the ice cream and I enjoyed the selection of movies and television. I also appreciated the map and trip information display."
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: "food was pretty good, nice selection of movies"
Cons: "cramped seats"
Cons: "I became infected with a head cold in the airplane and after I arrived at my destination I got sick. The person next to me was well, so was I. Is this a recurring problem? What can be done? Maintaining a cleaner air conditioning system?"
Pros: "Overall is perfect"
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable!"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Food portions and selections were great. We got slippers and eye masks for a ten hour red eye flight."
Cons: "Prices have gone up"
Pros: "Service, food, comfort, entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and friendly!"
Cons: "Change the mousse flavor, please. The hummus was terrible."
Cons: "The crew isn’t very friendly, they do not know English very much."
Cons: "The process to get into the plane at Istambul was horrendous. It took forever to process the passengers."
Pros: "overall, service was great"
Cons: "seats are too narrow"
Cons: "This was the worst I have ever experienced. My flight arrived into Istanbul and 45 minutes until the departure I was told it had already left. I later found out something very similar had happened to a man from London, a couple from Boston, three people from Ghana, and many more that were taken advantage of in an attempt to sell tickets for them to go home. Never in my life have I seen such corruption first hand in a business that claims to be professional. I travel with them roughly twice a year so I'm not really a huge spender when it comes to their service, however I have suggested many to use their airlines. Never again will I make this mistake, and never again will I fly with them. I think I would rather spend the few extra hundred dollars than to have to experience that again. Turkish airlines you have lost my service and my respect."
Pros: "The food and quality of the flight was incredible."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic, partly due to the airport layout, however it would be great if they were able to sort a less chaotic way to transport business class passengers out to the jets in less cramped busses."
Pros: "Turkish A/L always professional and efficient."
Cons: "Unmanaged two-year olds crying throughout the 10-hour flight. Will avoid IST going forward as well. Chaotic airport with little or no management present. Had to wait through SIX separate lines for a simple flight transfer. Had the body scans TWICE. Ridiculous. Nearly missed my 10-hour flight to Chicago."
Pros: "The flight itself was very nice quality again. Crew was very friendly, priority boarding for international business. pod seating was super comfortable."
Cons: "No alcohol beverage service before take off. One of the only airlines that does this. Also flight was delayed again in Istanbul. We were delayed on our layover in, and out of Istanbul. Both times stuck on the tarmac. I see this as a common problem"
Cons: "5 layers of security check for us bound flights. Group A, B, C & D almost boarded on the same time. Food was horrible."
Cons: "Delaying without notice and luggage lost"
Pros: "A Lousy airline. Also for Americans: They don't issue visas to allow the passenger who lost their flight to go to a hotel. They stated that there was a diplomatic problem between Turkey and the US so they don't issues visas anymore to Americans. STAY AWAY FROM TURKISH AIRLINES!"
Pros: "The food and entertainment was good. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "seats too small. I am 6 feet tall. The guy in front leaned back and my knees were jammed for 12 hours. I think this is a violation of gineva convention."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "I had a 22 hour layover. On the website, Turkish Airlines advertises they cover hotel rooms for anyone with a layover exceeding 15 hours. However, it's impossible to get a e-visa to allow Americans to leave the airport to take advantage of this. There is one hotel inside the airport, however it's extremely expensive and booked well in advance. While the service was decent on the plane, inside the airport the TA employee's were very rude and not at all helpful. So be prepared to spend the night on the floor or an uncomfortable bench. Won't fly on this airline ever again."
Pros: "had a medical emergency mid flight and the crew was fantastic and accommodating."
Pros: "Never flying back with this airline"
Cons: "Very bad customer service"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Good service, friendly and hard working flight attendants Nice gift bag with toiletries"
Cons: "Head pads of a seat don't go low enough for my low height. Provided pillows helped though"
Pros: "Enjoyed the service! Clean bathrooms with lotion! Good silverware for eating and nice tea!"
Cons: "USB did not work! Front of plane was boiling whereas back of plane was freezing. My friend was so hot she was sick many times because of the hotness of the plane."
Cons: "The service on Turkish airlines was not friendly or helpful. The food was not quality, or food tasting. The entertainment didn't include a lot of movies at all. One of the flights did even give headphones. The staff wasn't rude and not helpful, and didn't make the flight comfortable. I had high hopes flying with Turkish Airlines for the first time, but I was thoroughly disappointed with everything."
Pros: "Food, no delays, entertainment, price"
Cons: "No leg room on the plain, the crew is ok, but not very friendly. Not flexible with kids menu (requested kids menu, but crew was not notified and was not able to provide any), not very clean inside the plane (tables were dirty and there was hair in the window)"
Pros: "The flight was great. It was before the flight that was highly stressful"
Cons: "Boarding procedures in Istanbul were terrible. No communication. Lots of anxiety and stress. Running through airports."
Pros: "Crew accommodated at seat change so I had a space between me and the next passenger and I got a row seat."
Cons: "Trying to reclaim our laptops at the end of the trip was a nightmare. They confiscated all electronic devices larger than a cellphone due to new Trump regulations (not their fault). Fine. But they were so disorganized about the process. When trying to reclaim the devices after the flight utter chaos ensued. That was their fault. Passengers were on the verge of violence and it could have been avoided by simply being more organized."
Pros: "food, large touch screen..."
Pros: "Our flight from Zanzibar took off 40 minutes late and we made up no time in the air. We arrived at the Istanbul airport 20 minutes before our next flight was supposed to take off. Of course the gates were nowhere near each other so we ran as fast as we possibly could to catch our next flight. When we finally got to the gate, the employees were so kind to rush us through each step of security and get us to the door and there had to be at least 7 or 8 people who were working and doing whatever they could to get us on that flight. It meant so much! We had been up since 2am to catch our previous flight and just wanted to get home to our families and dogs! We were so grateful they worked so hard to get us on the plane!"
Cons: "Because we were late, we got what I'm guessing were the last two seats on the plane. The window seats in the last two rows. It was EXTREMELY tight back there. I'm just glad we were able to get on the plane but the comfort level was really not great and for a 10 hour flight, that stunk."
Pros: "The airline was very hospitable and efficient. All flights were on time, boarding and de-boarding were very quick and painless. Crew was extremely helpful and kind. Food was good, seats were comfortable, and entertainment was good. For the money and time spent on this flight we felt we got an extremely good deal and would take this airline again, and recommend."
Cons: "The planes were pretty warm/hot for most of our flights. I'm not sure if air condition was available, but I know some people asked. It did cool down eventually so they must have turned on air or fans, but I know the heat was on at some points which made it a bit uncomfortable for such a long flight."
Pros: "Excellent!"
Cons: "Choice of food on business class was very limited"
Pros: "Service was amazing! Highly recommend."
Pros: "as above"
Cons: "as above"
Pros: "This is a government run airline with very poor customer service. I flew 6 flights in December, 2016 in business class - out of which 5 flights were late. There was no help at the transfer desk in Istanbul to get onto another flight as my connecting flight was missed because the original outbound flight was late. The customer service staff both at the lounge and the transfer desk were inept and rude and did not want to help. I shudder to think how economy passengers are treated."
Cons: "1) No organized boarding process - there is a general melee at the boarding gate with a lot of shoving and pushing. 2) Customer service staff are rude, incompetent and unhelpful 3) No recognition that customers are to be served 4) Food selection in business class was mediocre and poor 5) Old aircraft - on flight from Istanbul to London, business class was 3 abreast with the middle seat being used as a tray table. 6) Sleeper class is mediocre - seat width is poor and one cannot even turn on the side"
Pros: "The service and the meals, even in economy class."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Nothing, will never use this airline again."
Cons: "Worst customer service. Very uncaring and rude. Worst airline I have seen and I have traveled with many. Had doubts about using Turkish and a little less expensive ticket turned out to be the most expensive in many ways. Went to the gate 17 minutes early and the agents and the plane was there but was refused entry and was lied and told to go to gate 215 and missed the flight even though there were empty seats on the plane. Asked for help at the other gate but was given the run around and ignored by everyone and told to go to gate 214. After I went to gate 214 was told to go to customer service lower level. Turkish airline supervisor Mustafa Bogaz at Istanbul customer service held a grudge because I was upset and yelled at one of the supervisors and he told Mustafa and everyone not to help me and wanted to get back at me and said penalty in front of me to the customer service member I was speaking with. Mustafa lied and would not put me on a connecting flight and said I had to pay penalty and wait 24 hours. Told me to go to customer service outside the airport and would not call them after I told him I was ready to pay for a connecting flight and could not wait 24 hours and needed to go to work. Even though an American citizen was told needed a visa after waiting 1 hour in line and had to pay to exit the airport. The machine didn't work and the credit card was refused. Got stuck at the airport for 24 hours and missed work and a family event. Turkey is a hell hole and nothing works. Will never visit again. Mustafa 6 hours later was still holding a grudge and told another customer service member in Turkish in front of me to lie to me and say there was no emergency aisle seat available for the flight the next day. Got an emergency aisle seat the next morning when Mustafa wasn't there. Everyone in the customer service team including other supervisors took Mustafa's side and would not help me and lied. Everyone had no compassion and held a grudge."
Pros: "Great customer service and food!"
Cons: "Nothing. They were great!!"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Their boarding pass listed departure time for boarding time which confused me. The staff in Istanbul is extremely unprofessional and have caused me to missed my connecting flight. I had to get a visa and waited almost 2 hours in line in order just to be able to reschedule my flight."
Pros: "Food was fine and entertainment system was great. Watched movies the whole way. We arrived 1 hour early."
Cons: "I was pulled aside for extra security. That was fine but there were a few other passengers that should have been pulled over for extra security besides me. It took an extra 20 minutes for me to board the plane because of this and when I arrived to my seat an Arab woman was sitting in my place and refused to move to the middle seat. She said she could not and would not sit next to a man who was sitting on the other side. If this is a problem from the start, there should be a way to choose a seat according to gender. The stewardess found me another place in front of this woman who kicked my seat the whole way. She even argued with the stewardess about putting her suitcase above her in the rack and security was almost called. There should be something included in the flight information program about being polite to other passengers."
Pros: "Excellent serice by airline crew nice food l like Tayip erdogan .end l like Turkiye and llike Turkish arlanes, Sincerely your Customer Cabir Senalan"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Boarding and airplane age."
Pros: "The entertainment and toiletry handout with slippers was the only enjoyable event"
Cons: "It took 57 mins of checking my passport and boarding card at 3 stations while standing in line prior to. Boarding. We underwent screening upon entering the airport and at customs. This subjection to standing in the heat in 3 lines of additional checking was lunacy. The plane was nasty , no tissue or paper towel was available in the bathrooms. The one toilet was out of order prior to taking off 1 hour later than our scheduled departure time"
Cons: "Sat 44A. The entire row behind me had 1 adult & 2 children. 2 Hours into the flight, there were 4 children, no adults and the seats were used as a playpen. 7 hours of kicking, punching the screen, opening the window shutter during "sleeping time" as instructed by the crew. Wine was poured on my back, water splashed on the person next to me, children were climbing over my head... etc. No parents or flight attendants could help the situation. Boarding was a mess. 10-15 passengers surrounding me sat anywhere they wanted creating a delay to push back because everyone just sat with their family and disregarded the chaos it created for those individual travelers wanting to sit in "THEIR PROPER SEAT". This was the worst / never ending flying experience I've ever had. I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "The flights attending."
Cons: "The waiting time for next flight."
Pros: "I love Turkish Airlines overall. Their bigger international airplanes have more leg room for a coach for longer flights. Crew were courteous and professional."
Pros: "The food was good, the flight attendants were mostly friendly and normal."
Cons: "While the flight attendants and crew inside the airplane were all friendly and nice , I can't say that for the employees inside the airport!!! They are the WORST employees I've ever seen! Multiple times, when I was trying to ask for help, they barely made eye contact or rudely ignored me! I was shocked! Never have I ever seen airport employees act so rude! One girl even was half asleep when I went up to her to ask for directions. She just pointed to the direction and didn't even look at me or say anything ! Never again will I fly with Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Entertainment system and broad variety of international movies and music"
Cons: "Delayed take off"
Pros: "Got to the destination"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Great food and service."
Cons: "My seat did not recline. My movies did not play."
Cons: "Having more than one person at the curtesy desk when half the plain’s luggage was left in Germaine"
Cons: "Missed connection flight in Chicago due to a technical delay in Munich, the tank vehicle had a defect and the ground power in Chicago went out. It is now the 4 th time that we got stranded in Chicago. So Condor, Lufthansa and Chicago are getting on our shitlist......"
Pros: "Never seen such a large streaming movie library. Never seen live stream at seat from cameras (3) outside the plane."
Cons: "It was not clear this was a no-checked-baggage flight, seeing as I specifically searched with flights with luggage. I chose Lufthansa's flight counting on the fact that international flights always allow one checked bag. I had to pay on that way here. I"ll have to pay on the way home."
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "The red wine was good and the crew made sure that we were well hydrated. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "The quality of the meals was poor - tasteless food, possibly loaded with preservatives."
Pros: "Service was great too"
Cons: "Squished in seat"
Pros: "Flight attendants Was nice and friendly, I do like theirs Sevice ."
Pros: "TSA made me miss my flight i have to wait until 7 am for a new flight"
Cons: "TSA made me miss my flight i have to wait until 7 am for a new flight"
Pros: "Enjoyed the legroom even though we flew Economy class. Good selection of free movies. Crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "We waited for an hour at the gate for other passengers, to where we missed our connection in Chicago and did not get back to Austin, TX for another 24 hours."
Pros: "Also a lovely and comfortable flight"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "United charged me a Bagage fee of 25 dollars and they where not supposed to since it was a international flight. The knowledge of the agent was not very good. Now I will have to write to Lufthansa and hoping they will reemburse me."
Pros: "Lufthansa is an efficient operation."
Cons: "1. The comfort in economy class was insulting and horrible. I am 6'3", 175lbs and was trapped in one uncompromisingly uncomfortable position for 8+ hours. Torture is a word that comes to mind. If I were a smaller sized person, 5'8" or less, perhaps this may be acceptable, but for anyone over 6'. forget it. You must pay loads extra to be given a respectable seat. I am hopeful that I don't develop a blood clot from this flight. This lack of room is a seriously dangerous situation for many people on long-distance flights. 2. The seat recline feature added further insult to the mix. Once airborne, the lady in the seat in front of me sent her seat into what was left of any personal space or legroom I had. The video screen on the setback in front of me was literally 6" from my face now. Several people who were also of taller size complained, one was so adamant about retaining his space that he fought verbally with the lady in front of him, and eventually a stewardess had to be called. My wife complained on my behalf, and was able to get the lady in front of me to reposition her seat, but eventually, I noticed it somehow found its way back to recline again. I know Lufthansa is not alone with this predicament, but something HAS TO BE DONE to fix this huge problem with air travel. 3. The food on the flight to Germany was way better than the return trip. The meal consisted of mushy carrots, greasy mashed potato-like side, and a piece of OK chicken smothered in 'Murican BBQ sauce. I was insulted. Lufthansa had been better than this in the past. Oh, and the dinner roll was so dry and crumbly, it could have been weeks old. The snack before landing was called pizza, but I wouldn't call it that It was a bunch of tasteless dough, a little bit of tomato like sauce and a smattering of cheese. I wish Lufthansa would stick to what they do best; German-influenced food. Be true to who you are. Most people I know love German food, and I always have looked forward to LH food selections. Not now."
Pros: "The staff and food were exceptional!"
Cons: "Too warm"
Pros: "Huge selection of movies and entertainment. Good food, especially the fresh salad and vegetarian option for dinner. Good wine selection, the saving grace for what I consider an over sold flight. The service staff was attentive and professional. The pilot and crew were great, I felt very safe."
Cons: "Delays in both legs of my trip made connecting flight nerve wracking. Economy seating was horrible. Uncomfortable, too many people stuffed into claustrophobic conditions. The funk was pretty overwhelming. Bathrooms were stinky and ran out of toilet paper. Only the free flowing wine made it tolerable."
Pros: "Pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "Narrow, hard seats that will bring back your greatest dentist memories. Unappetizing menu choices, such that I chose not to partake. Nickel and dime add-on for wifi. Seriously? Thousands of dollars for business class, and you want another 13 Euro for wifi? Not bloody likely. I usually fly SAS business class, and based on this experience with Lufthansa, I will go straight back to SAS. They offer better service, better menu choices, and first class seating for the same price. Easy decision."
Cons: "Got a little hot in the cabin"
Pros: "Our family was able to all sit together, even though we were not able to select our seats."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to select my seats when booking the flight, but they put us all t"
Pros: "I enjoyed the patience of the crew and the responsibility they took with everything they did."
Cons: "The noise and the lack of space in my specific area."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "It would really be nice as a paying HON/SEN and business ticket passenger to get priority boarding. As nowadays seemingly everybody has priority boarding, this offer does not make sense anymore."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "General boarding should be by zones or rows and not first come first serve."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding. Back of the plane seats should be boarding first, after babies and old people. I was stopped by the people in front of the plane putting away their luggage and standing in the aisle. Not enough room between the rows. Passenger in front of me most picture straight into my face"
Cons: "Fight was cancelled, but we weren't notified until it was time to board (30-45 minutes before takeoff). We went to the help desk and were placed on a flight few hours later, but were never told the reason for the cancellation."
Pros: "The crew and the service was very good."
Cons: "The place I was given was against a wall and I could not recline the seat back fully. The price for one way was the same as a return ticket, so I did not understand why I was "punished" with such choice of a seat."
Pros: "Munich airport on other hand. We got to the airport several hours in advanced. Everything from getting a boarding pass to checking and weighing in your own bag was electronically. Long lines and majority of the systems were not working. After trying several machines and being directed into 3 different lines I finally was able to check my bag in. I had to leave my other family members who were flying with me as they were in another line. At the machine to check my bag in , a airport worker ran up to my bag and slammed it onto the ground as well as ripped off my luggage tags. My bag was upright on the conveyer belt instead of on its side , but how rude the airport workers are, is rediculous. After I asked why she did that she just began ordering me around to move my bag after I got my bag through the machine I asked to speak to a manager as the airport worker was extremely rude and unprofessional. No one would give me the time of day and the same airport working out her hand in my face saying repeatedly goodbye in German. I've never experienced anything like this in my entire life. Trying to get through security a few travelers on a thin patience level started pushing people in line trying to by pass others it was so very chaotic workers had to go in between. Those travelers were complaining, because disabled travelers had a separate line that was faster. The worst airport experience I've ever had. Once on the plane everyone was pleasant. Crew was very helpful and always willing to assists"
Cons: "There was a child on the plane that was screaming and crying on and off for several hours. The parents didn't do anything to keep the child calm. Before we got to Chicago eveyone had to be seatbelt s before landing and the flight attendant asked eveyone to buckle up. The mother of the baby wouldn't listen and began yelling at flight crew. I think the flight crew did a great job, the passenger and child were very disruptive making the flight at times very uncomfortable. I wouldn't suggest infants or toddlers flying for such long trips. No one wants to listen to a child screaming at the top of their lungs."
Pros: "Movies / Food"
Cons: "Seat location. Delay time boarding."
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to air traffic control issues. It didn't make a difference for me but many people missed their connection. However, the crew were all friendly and the Captain was very outgoing and communicative."
Cons: "Late flights are never good."
Pros: "Boarding is efficient. Flight very smooth."
Cons: "great crew"
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "The food was okay and the crew did their best to make us comfortable once we were on board. We flew business class, so that was probably a factor."
Cons: "Everything else was horrible. When we got to the airport, they didn't even know we were coming. They sent us to two other airlines, assuming we were flying with a partner airline, then tried to shift the blame onto Kayak. When -- and ONLY when -- we pointed out that we'd actually booked directly through Condor and Kayak had only served as the intermediary, they gave us a direct line to call. Then their agent said "You can't always trust the people at the desk, you know." Oh, really? If I can't trust your own agents, who can I trust, exactly? It turned out that we had an initial flight to Minneapolis, which was NOWHERE on the itinerary, on Sun Country. The Sun Country folks, thankfully, were enormously helpful and we made our flight with 2 minutes to spare. But it doesn't end there. We'd paid for business class all the way, but only got it on the interseas portions of our flights. And they lost our luggage on the way home, to boot. Take home lesson? NEVER FLY WITH CONDOR. I'll walk to Europe before ever booking with them again. And I'll make sure that all my friends and colleagues, all of whom travel extensively, know of our experience."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "The shabbiness of the plane. The cramped space. The lack of overhead bin space. In fact, the space above my seat was full of suitcases of the crew. I had to find space somewhere else. If I had not been able to board early, I probably would not have found space."
Pros: "While showing wear and tear, the business seats are great - comfortable with nice design"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Old plane. Bad food. Small seats. Obsolete entertainment system. Hate United!"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "I feel that the there should be NO reclining of seats in the economy section. There is about 10-12 inches of space between my face and the seat back if the seat in front is not reclined. If it is reclined , this distance is reduced to 6-8 inches. Too, too close. And reclining does not add much to the comfort of the sitting position. When the person in front of me reclines, then I am almost forced to recline so I have enough room."
Pros: "Excellent airplane, very comfortable."
Cons: "Landed very late in Chicago and lost our connection to home. Had to spend the night to catch another flight home in the morning."
Pros: "in flight entertainment, bathrooms, and charging capability"
Cons: "Not enough service/availability of water"
Cons: "Flight was late causing us to miss our connection to Las Vegas, NOT HAPPY"
Pros: "The movie options where not great."
Cons: "Movie options."
Pros: "The crew made this flight in my experience. The crew was very professional and quick to respond."
Cons: "The late boarding due to technical and mechanical problems at the airport Lufthansa gate."
Pros: "I love flying with lufthansa. Staff is friendly and chatty. Personal service is excellent. Food could be better compared to other airlines, but is not so important to me when it comes to flying."
Pros: "Good entertainment options and nice choice of movies and TV. Complimentary drinks are good and service is frequent."
Cons: "Difficulty with Lufthansa's website made it so that I could only complete check in for one person in our party. When we arrived at the airport and they printed boarding passes, the Lufthansa agent re-assigned seats without asking or telling me and gave us all middle seats. Very poor form. Food was either average or bad, depending on what was served. Boarding is unorganized, with people lining up over an hour prior to boarding and almost completely ignoring their boarding groups."
Pros: "Smooth landing in Chicago."
Cons: "The crew in my section near the rear of the plane was competent, but snippy. None seemed approachable. I contrast them with the Lufthansa crew from Toronto to Munich who were short-handed but so pleasant even though they were overworked due to some crew members not showing up. Lufthansa food is average at best. The central restroom area on the MUC to ORD flight became filthy. Aren't crew members supposed to police that area? Or are passengers supposed to bring rubber gloves to clean it halfway through the flight?"
Pros: "In some airlines, you experience a different standard from Europe to America, compared to standard from Africa. Luftansa did not compromise quality. The partner maintained the same. The booking from Kayak was excellent . The travel was seamless."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process and tarmac delays consumed the already inadequate prospective layover in Chicago."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
Cons: "The stewardess was a bit rude!"
Pros: "Great crew and good complimentary food"
Cons: "Larger seat pitch"
Pros: "It was a very easy boarding process, stress free flight, good meals, kind and friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Flight was great."
Cons: "I don't have any complaints."
Pros: "The crew for this flight were lovely, I’d highly recommend flying with edelweiss."
Cons: "Ground staff could have been more helpful given I was on “standby” . Made me stand in a line for absolutely no reason and then go stand in it again as if to kill time until a seat came up - they could have just asked me to take a seat. I know how stand-by works."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly. They all seemed to like their job and interacting with people."
Pros: "Crew was attentive did they best on a large flight accommodating a large amount of people. Wide assortment of films."
Cons: "Although I preselected my bulkhead seat so I had more legroom, the family behind me was the worst I e experienced ever in flying. Constant kicking, pulling, tapping the back of my chair. When I tried to put my seat in recline the passenger behind me said “no!” Never slept!"
Pros: "Clean friendly helpful safe on time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Friendly cree..!!"
Cons: "No delay...!!!"
Pros: "The crew was kind and attentive"
Cons: "Leg room on my longest leg of the trip was not much and when the person in front of me leaned back their chair, my knees were touching the chair."
Pros: "They cancel my flight"
Cons: "Nothing not using anymore"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, food was very good."
Pros: "Fast service"
Cons: "No entertaoment"
Pros: "Flight was 2h15 Minutes late without any explanation"
Pros: "Young, enthusiastic crew worked hard to make this crowded flight an a good experience"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Great customer service, the crew was professional and courteous."
Cons: "I was not able to reserve my seat."
Pros: "No other way to get there in 10 hours The on crew are very nice."
Cons: "Air travel is the most uncomfortable way to travel and airlines are working to make it worse ...according to news reports. On board: Cramped in too tight especially for a 10 hour flight. You have to be athletic to eat from the tray table. Though only 5ft 8in, I had no knee room, -especially when the person in front lowered his seat. Airport terminals inconvenient: Frankfurt AM and Zurich were lacking in people movers which made getting from one gate to the next a severe pain. I am not looking forward to traveling through either of these airports in the future... though others are just as bad."
Pros: "service was polite & good. meals seemed good quality - I had forgotten to order a special meal to accommodate my food allergies so I brought my own food and didn't actually eat on the plane, but it looked & smelled good!"
Cons: "There were too many announcements, especially in the first few hours of the flight - constant interruptions, at one point the pilot came on and told us how much the plane weighed when we took off...... had to tell us in multiple languages, so it took a few minutes. Very cramped in economy class - I'm 5'6" - not so tall.... and when the seat in front of me reclined, it was touching my knees. For the whole 13+ hour flight it was ON my knees! It was uncomfortable and made it very hard to get in and out of my seat."
Cons: "The panic of a 50 minute layover was huge and there was no room for error. Everything else went smoothly!"
Pros: "Traveling with kids is always uncertain but the crew were very friendly, the entertainment system was more than enough to keep them busy during the 12 hour flight"
Cons: "Late boarding, ended up arriving 3 hours late."
Pros: "Nothing...the flight was cancelled THAT MORNING"
Cons: "Flight cancelled...not so nice"
Pros: "Comfortable seats in economy"
Cons: "Lost baggage on a simple nonstop flight and poor communication on status"
Pros: "All of the Cabin attendant have served with smile."
Cons: "I wanted to have coffee and tea service not only with tthe meal and also after the meal . More selection of Movies would be nice."
Pros: "excellent food and service. Very nice to have video monitors with many choices for entertainment. efficient boarding and off boarding."
Cons: "seats were not very comfortable but you can always upgrade"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly. Food was quite good compared to food on other airlines. Interesting documentaries among entertainment. Headphones, pillows and blankets without additional charge. Pilot kept passengers informed about the delay."
Cons: "Seating is very tight just like with other carriers."
Pros: "It looked like the plane was very new. The seats were extremely comfortable, enough room for long legs, the back was well designed for comfort. the plane was very clean, the crew was absolutely great and they seemed to work well together. I was so surprised to have all that lovely food and soft drinks available for no charge.. I plan to use Edelweiss again. I had to have a wheel chair and never had to wait for one. The persons pushing the chairs were very friendly and helpful and I was greatful to have themi."
Cons: "There were a lot of children on the plane, children running in the isles and using outside voices.. The crew, of course,did what they could."
Pros: "Great food."
Cons: "1 hour late departure. The plane felt very shaky."
Pros: "Movie selections"
Cons: "No free beer in economy class."
Pros: "The flight was fairly smooth and on time. Plenty of snacks were offered."
Cons: "This might sound petty, but on other long international flights, we have been offered free wine and beer. Other passengers expressed the same surprise that we had to pay (at a pretty high price) for a glass of wine or beer. Swiss Air should consider offering this nice "perk" on such a long flight."
Cons: "I have never been charged for win on an international flight before. This was ridiculous. Also no Wi-Fi and the temp was warm the entire flight"
Pros: "Excellent service, direct to Tampa"
Cons: "limited leg room"
Cons: "So upsetting that when I booked my flight I chose my seats so my husband and children could all sit together but when we checked in we were in completely different rows. The best they could do in the end was split us in half and have us behind each other which is ridiculous still because we had an infant and two children under 9. I called to make sure we sit together on the way home and they made it sound like they still can’t gaurabtee we will be together and that we have to pay more to guarantee our seats."
Pros: "Simply that I arrived. Quick receipt of two checked bags."
Cons: "The herding during the boarding process. The window seat and my inability to see or hear the cabin crew. The slow departure after arrival."
Pros: "I liked the airport and the competence and friendliness of everyone from the customs police to the airport staff."
Cons: "If I can I will always use this connection - wish it would have been easier to find when I first searched."
Cons: "unfortunately too many children around me equaled no sleep having to pay for alcohol"
Cons: "Staff and crew were great."
Cons: "If I would have had a chance to actually be on the flight. Missed it due to poor booking starting from LA"
Pros: "For the last flights from Las Vegas to Zurich I've only been using Edelweiss. My favorite and preferred way to travel long distance. Always on time. Friendly crew. Clean planes."
Cons: "Wish they would fly this particular flight year round."
Pros: "The cabin was clean. I also appreciated that the flight arrived on time."
Pros: "Clean and efficient."
Cons: "Crowded seating."
Cons: "Food was not good, there was no leg space at all, entertainment was poor. For a 12 hours flight it was hard"
Pros: "I travel internationally between the US and Europe twice each month and i now have a new favorite, especially with the direct flight between San Diego and Zurich!"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "food"
Pros: "Service and quality of food."
Cons: "Ticket at kiosk check-in said "standby" status. Wasn't sure if I had a confirmed seat until gate check-in."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Pros: "It got us home in one piece"
Cons: "flight attendants were grouchy. It was my first and last flight on Swiss airlines"
Pros: "Great entertainment for all."
Cons: "Food wasn't good. Didn't know kid meal options. Also, more and more people have food allergies and seeds and nuts, treenuts should be clearly listed on products."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No control of air blowing on me"

Never booked this flight

Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"
Pros: "Muslim food"
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "All of the less than good, obvious!"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"
Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."
Cons: "The plane is so old..,"
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."
Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."
Pros: "Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Seats not great for such a long flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Pros: "The flight was perfect! Great food,movies and I even got to sleep !"
Cons: "All was well!"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Pros: "Interior of the plane was clean. Smooth landing."
Cons: "Pilot did not avoid turbulence"
Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Cons: "The 767 is configured oddly and th business class seats are so narrow it feel like you are sleeping in a coffin"
Cons: "Missing wheel chairs swrvice lounge far away no food option just lame klm tipique"
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
Pros: "Easy Boarding"
Pros: "good service"
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Pros: "Quick (relatively) flight."
Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."
Pros: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Cons: "Our flight from Nairobi to Lusaka was cancelled for some reason and we did not find out until we happened to log into the website to double check our itinerary. They automatically rescheduled the flight only giving us 25 minutes to reach our next flight...impossible. so, after calling, we were re-booked again and forced into a 13 hour layover in Amsterdam. Our original flight plan had 4 hours. so, because we are a family of 7 with a baby, we had to buy a hotel room to rest, costing us a lot of extra money we had not planned to spend. We contacted KLM for help with the cost but were rejected. We also lost 5 bags somewhere between Chicago and Lusaka, but after 2 days, we received them."
