Pros: "Crew was great, seating comfortable."
Pros: "This was my first and last time I will ever fly with Swiss airline-it’s been 4 days and I still didn’t receive my baggage and I had all my medicines in them,that’s including my carry on bag too,because it was taking from me @ the gate and I was told I will get it at my final destination,which I didn"

Cons: "Temperature was very hot"
Pros: "Short flight, no entertainment. They still offer free snacks on short flights, a plus, but it was an almost frozen cheese sandwich. A Little bag of pretzels would be better. The crew was very friendly."

Cons: "The plane was late and there was little to no communication to the passengers waiting to board the flight. Very tiring."
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."
Pros: "Loved the warm and very delicious quiche, thank you!"
Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"
Pros: "On Board Service"

Cons: "Mackenzie Gray/ My flight was cancelled due to bad weather conditions unfortunately. I'm upset that I never received my initinerary for my substitute flight! I tried online and calling the # that was provided no results. I managed to get thru to someone and they told me they would send the info to my email but they never did."
Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly and attentive crew"
Cons: "Cramped space in economy!"
Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"
Cons: "I have just had the most unpleasant experience with Swiss Air and feel that anyone on FB should be very careful when dealing with this airline. I am a Gold Member of Star Alliance for more than 20 years and have flown dozens of times on Swiss and would expect courtesy and consideration in return for my loyalty to their airline. Their flight from Hong Kong to Zurich leaves at 00:15. I mistakenly booked this for Nov 9th instead of the intended late evening of the 9th which then turns out to be Nov 10th. When I discovered my error, I called Swiss at least six times to explain my error and ask if my son could stand by for the same flight on the 10th or even apply the amount to rebook the same flight the next day. ZERO flexibility or consideration. Missed flight, lose entire value. Start from scratch. Astonished that an airline that claims to be serving their customers would treat me this way. I travel through Europe at least 6-10 times a year from Asia. I will now route through Frankfurt, Munich, Paris, London, Vienna, Instanbul or even Moscow before ever going through Zurich again. I encourage anyone making travel plans to be very careful when considering flights with Swiss Airlines. Perhaps this treatment of a loyal customer explains why they went through bankruptcy already once."

Cons: "Not a thing."
Pros: "The captain refused to turn on the AC until we were just about to leave. Many passengers were complaining. The crew refused to help or do anything.

Pros: "As a frequent traveler, SWISS hadthe best airline food I've ever tasted. Very efficient in everyhing they do. Great service and the crew was very friendly. Unfortunately, I had a seat that was in between the two in front of it, so my TV was at an angle, but only a minor inconvenience"

We had to wait til we were at the airport to do that. When checking in we were told we had to wait til onboard? Then once on board told no. So we were not able to sit together & weren't even in the same area of the plane. We also had an old plane & seats very uncomfortable. The movie screen was barely visible so basically u could just listen."

Didn't even have the decency to put a plastic cover on it. Overall I found the crew lacking any warmth and the service was mediocre at best. The food was below average. Overall highly disappointed. I had assumed that Turkish would be like it's other middle Eastern airlines line Emirates or Qutar but they are not. I would take my business elsewhere"
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.

Cons: "How come a Business Class doesn't have sleeping masks? Unbelievable."
Pros: "The security measures"
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."

Cons: "Limited leg space. Boarding process at Mumbai airport was very bad, not at all systematic and arranged."

Cons: "in a previous email we explained that by the time we arrived at the gate in Sao Paulo, the airline refused our boarding the plane and said only "we don't like Kayak". We never boarded the plane and there was a credit to our credit card, so why are you asking how our flight went?"
Pros: "When we arrived at the gate we were told they did not have us in the system and the one gate attendant told us that the airline did not like Kayak. We were then forced to stay in the airport hotel at a rate of almost $200.00 as we were unable to secure a flight on a different airline until the next day"

Cons: "no issues"
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The grew was not very happy almost upset perhaps they were tired the ladies were okay but one of the men was very moody and unpleasant to be around"

Pros: "Lufthansa is a friendly airline but was unable to help with our problem because I had booked through Kayak."
Cons: "When I presented my passport at the counter to receive my boarding pass, I was told my passport needed to be over 3 months before expiration. It expires January 14, 2019. It is not written on the passport, nor mentioned during booking. I’ve been to Latvia four times previously and never heard this requirement. I cancelled the flight with Lufthansa who said I must call Kayak who gave me another number to call and that number then sent an email that said there was a $350 rebooking fee for each ticket, IF they decided I was eligible for rebooking. Yes, we got a great rate, but looks like wasted $ now. I will book directly with the airline in the future to ensure the ability to rebook."
Pros: "I am always amazed how Lufthansa gets it right."
Cons: "Legroom was tide. When the person in front of you put their seat down you feel like ham in a sandwich."
Cons: "The cabin crew ignored my repeated calls for service. I willing gave up my seat so a couple could sit together with their kid and sat behind my wife and kids to be nice. They than reclined the seat back and my seat was broken do I asked them to put the seat forward and they ignored me. I informed the cabin crew that they weren't being considerate after all I gave up my seat to them. The cabin crew told me I could leave my 4 yest old and 3 year old alone and move to a new seat."

Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Cons: "You are asking me about a flight that we did not take. We called to cancel it."

Pros: "Excellent crew, provided beverages constantly, meals were very good for airplane food, seats were comfortable for most of the 9.5 hours. Entertainment selections were more than adequate. Even the babies were quiet !!!"
Cons: "TV screens did not function consistently, had to be reset a couple of times. Plane was late boarding (but made up most of the time). Had to go through security a second time even though it was a connecting flight. Luggage got crushed in a carousel pile-up and took a long time to come out."

Pros: "Comfort and space"

Pros: "Food was good. Flight was on time, everything went smoothly"
Pros: "Great price, great airlines, easy flight....I few LAX to Geneva."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "The food was not that great"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Cons: "The flight was transferred to a smaller plane, either because there were few passengers (the first story we heard) or because of mechanical problems on the original craft (the second story). Business class was oversold as a result, and boarding was delayed for an hour while they waited for enough BC passengers to accept 800 euros for the downgrade to economy plus. They repeatedly threatened to cancel the flight rather than raise the offer. Eventually enough knuckled under and we were allowed to leave. Some no doubt missed connections because of this petty brinkmanship. The funny coda is that because the plane was so undersold, anyone in economy that wanted their own row could have one, while economy plus was packed with the embittered and downgraded."
Pros: "Friendly staff aND the economy seats aren't too cramped"
Pros: "Service is good, you actually get food and drinks, thanks for that."
Cons: "The seats in the economy class are too small. Not once did I have someone sitting next to me who could actually fit in his seat. They weren't particularly large people, just average men but their arms were in my space all the time. Also if I drop something, I cannot pick it up, there's no room. For transatlantic flights the seats should be bigger."
Pros: "Crew was very courteous and efficient"
Cons: "Seats were too small. I noticed my neighbor was a fat big woman and she was occupying part of my seat and arm rests so I couldn't move because she was almost on top of me. It was a very unconfortable journey."
Pros: "On Time / Comfortable short flight"
Pros: "Boarding to exit all went smooth"
Cons: "Air was sometimes stale"
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Pros: "On my going flight MSP to Frankfurt, I had a normal seat and as a tall person, it was miserable. The seats were so tight I had to have my legs in the aisle and constantly stand just to make it. On the return I was given an exit row and it was quite nice."
Cons: "Condor is a reduced price airline so I was not expecting a large amount of entertainment. But only two free movies was a little bit extreme. The music selection was good."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Lufthansa sharing code with United wasn't pleasant at all."

Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"

I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "I want to have it. I was expecting a serious and major company as yourself to provide it in a 3.t hours flight. This is how low cost / charters looks like."
Cons: "I area where we did the check-in is horrible. I understand there are security issues but in Frankfurt airport it is much better then Munich and I expect you to find the answer how to have both needs."
Cons: "2 hours late"
Pros: "Crew worked hard to make the journey pleasant, including the second crew for my connection to New York JFK, a much longer flight. Even some of the food was edible."
Pros: "Crew inside the plane was lovely."
Cons: "The crew woman that assist us in Barcelona Airport counters for the check-in was really rude asking very personal question that I still don't understand why and questioning our passports without any reason. My partner and I felt very uncomfortable and that was a totally unnecessary situation. After that everything was totally great during the flight."
Pros: "The flight crew was wonderful! Friendly and really attentive the whole trip!"
Pros: "Very nice staff."
Cons: "Boarding could has been smoother."
Pros: "The TV system"
Cons: "Can't check in on your website"
Cons: "Flight attendants were very attentive. Plentiful food and drinks with several choices. Pillow, blanket, headphones provided. Individual monitors with choice of movies television music games and more. USB port for charging. Smooth flight, on time. Bid for an upgrade option is nice."
Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"
Pros: "Confort and kindness"
Cons: "It was too cold"
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."

My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Appropriate and efficiently served snack."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."
Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "Despite zone boarding, boarding and disembarkation were very slow. Passengers like me with flight connections were very anxious regarding missing these."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my bagfage was lost"
Pros: "The crew and the timing were ok"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."

Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"

Pros: "The entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard"
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Cons: "The plane was very hot"
Pros: "Just the cabin crew being nice"
Cons: "Punctuality KLM is always late"
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"

Cons: "Less legroom, storage space, bad food, few movie options."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food."
Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Pros: "Very personable staff. Food acceptable for airline fare. Ticket price was outstanding."
Cons: "Paid for extra legroom, but very narrow seats not comfortable. Very difficult to sleep. Old plane--could not hear movies and unclear screen. Music sounded OK and choice was good."

Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."

Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"

Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful.food"
Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."

Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."
Pros: "Even for this short flight, drinks and sandwich was provided staff were efficient and friendly"
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Yet again it was flight delay from KLM side."
Pros: "- entertainment systen was OK (movies), but has no current news - food was good - windows can be darkened progressively"
Cons: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."
Pros: "It was a decent train ride."
Cons: "Stating it’s a train from the beginning and not having to go from one train station to another."
Pros: "The rest area"
Cons: "The airport was cold and it should be warmer"
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable for long haul. Airbus 380 premier economy. Not enough reclining and leg support."
Pros: "The cabin crew were amazing and the seats very comfortable, even in economy. I'm not a super comfortable flyer so I loved that the pilot would always warn when we were getting into turbulence. 2 thumbs up. I will fly Air France again"

Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Pros: "Great newer plane, great service!"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. We were in business class which was modest but comfortable."
Cons: "Ground crew in Paris failed to put our luggage on plane to Amsterdam. Also, plane was delayed about 40 minutes because of Amsterdam air traffic. Captain was very apologetic to the passengers."
Pros: "I really liked my seat, but it was one of the only ones that didn't have a USB port."
Cons: "See above. Overall, very nice experience."
Cons: "Too much time spent at boarding. On luggage missing."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Service and food was good."
Cons: "Random TSA check was not needed at the end when boarding."
Cons: "It was a great flight can’t think of anything"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and the food was excellent."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive but hard to understand"
Cons: "Airport experience was inefficient. Long unattractive walk, boarding was tedious: the automatic check-in was not helpful and required so many more staff. Random security check was redundant and chaotic."
Pros: "Crew members"
Cons: "Up to 1 hour late and they leaved my baggage in Paris"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."

Cons: "Engine noise in the cabin is loud."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good meal and entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding agent forced me to check in my carry-on even though the carry-on fit in the cage and fullfilled all the requirements. I specifically called Air France prior to the flight to make sure I won’t have any issues as my 1st flight was operated by Delta and I wanted to confirm the luggage requirements were the same. My carry-on weighted only 5 kilos. I was extremely upset the way I was treated w/ the boarding agent behind the counter in Prague. On the top of that, her and the supervisor were very rude to my mom as they told her she had an extra carry-on which wasn’t the case. She traveled w/ a small briefcase where her mask for sleep apnea was. This is not considered an additional carry-on. The boarding agent (Czech lady and her supervisor) were not only rude but obviously lacked knowledge as well. My carry-on suitcase would easily fit in the overhead bin plus there was plenty of space inside the plane as it the flight wasn’t completely full."
Cons: "The food was cold. We were served about 40 minutes after most of the plane got their food. The overhead compartments kept opening by themselves through out the flight. Food was horrible."
Cons: "Separated me and my wife for the whole flight! Could not accommodate us together. This reservation was made over 6 weeks ago !!!"
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work; in neighboring seat it could not be switched off when we wanted to sleep; sourly employees everywhere (re-booking counter an exception); food close not being edible and cold; I forgot my watch on when going through security in the Air France terminal; when I started to say "sorry" I was yelled at by the screener who said that she will do the talking; she sent me back through the scanner twice without my watch, then once more with the carry-on and made sure that I went to the end of a very long line to wait for another screening rather than having me just go through the scanner without my watch. Needless to say, there was nothing else suspicious about me once the watch was removed. Eager to exercise her power, the security person did not seem to consider that she slowed down a long line of people waiting to be screened. I should add that I am 73 yrs old grey haired female who has traveled a lot both for pleasure and business during my entire life, often to some difficult places and that I do not argue with or provoke those in power in a situation like this. The yelling and the sending me repeatedly through the scanner, which did not beep once the watch was removed, was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere else. The sending me to the very end of the line seemed outright spiteful. (I did miss the plane connection.)"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Plane left more than 40 minutes late with no explanation or apology."
Cons: "The food was the worst airline food I have ever been served. I could not eat it. This is very disappointing for an airline like AirFrance which usually serves very good meals."
Pros: "Food was Fantastic, Air France the Best on Air."
Cons: "Canceled flight—absolutely no notification. Convoluted rebooking in whcuhbhey lies to us about what flights we were actually on. Spent a couple hours at Delta rebooking our trip. Lost prepaid night at hotel and dinner eaecatuon plus day of vacation."
Cons: "We paid for Business Class from JFK to TLV. The flight to Tel Aviv was in a small plane with 3 across seats that hardly reclined. We are most unhappy and will complain to American Express Platinum Card."
Pros: "The friendliness and courtesy of the staff."
Cons: "One piece of my luggage was left behind in Paris."
Pros: "Staff pleasant and courteous fine meal and beverages! Arrived ahead of schedule in Bucharest!! Overall a very pleasant experience!"
Pros: "Nothing... and we were late which made me miss my connecting flight and I wasn’t reimbursed because it was with a different airline"
Cons: "See above and the food was disgusting"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "There should be more layover time as I almost missed my flight and My luggage was delayed!!"
Cons: "Initially the flight from Lima was delayed for almost 1:30 and then we lost this connection then Airfrance rebooking to SAS they tell us to take all our luggage’s and check in again it’s was awful and really bad from then walk and spend time we suppose to be quite at home ... the worst was in SAS have ano system and for 1.5 kilos extras you might pay 33€ so after long day and wait, running everywhere with all my staff I see to eat a 11€ menu at the airport with not more explanation from Airfrance .. really bad and worst services.."
Pros: "Crew was nice and responsive"
Cons: "The overall experience is regular at best"
Pros: "Flight was only 50% full. Room to spread out."
Cons: "Leg room cramp. Flight arrived late as a result missed connection home."
Cons: "There were not noodle soup ready this time."
Pros: "Leg room is bigger than average, there is also a foot step which helps you to relax."
Cons: "There must be lice on the plane, either from the customer or on the seats. Got bitten 6 times on the leg and butt!!! And this is not the first time hearing same story, Air France definitely needs to disinfect the plane more thoroughly. Media center is outdated, touch screen isn’t working well, felt being punched in head every time when ppl behind you tries to touch the screen!"
Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"

Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"

Cons: "The seats were terrible, the entertainment units were poor and staff was very reluctant to give proper service."
Pros: "Food, drinks, and general service on board were all very nice"
Cons: "Airport experience at cdg was atrocious. Took more than an hour to check in and it was a complete zoo."
Cons: "The food is awful The entertainment, i.e. movie selection, is not very good and doesn't change very much. The seats are not comfortable and my chair did not recline."
Pros: "I had a choice of movies, games and music that was very appealing. My concerns about not receiving the correct meal was handled professionally and promptly during the flight. I was surprised they couldn't discover I only ordered it for the second leg of my flight."
Cons: "Being placed into a window seat at 6' 5". Although I opted for general seating rather than paying for a extra leg room which is out of my budget. Not getting an aisle seat was disturbing at my height. Then there was the guy in front of me not willing to forego putting his seat back on my knees for over half the flight. It would be nice if the seat assignments for general boarding considered the height of the person being assigned."
Pros: "nice crew; excellent check in experience!"
Cons: "boarding in Riyadh is always a nightmare. and as many have noted, the seats are too close for the average size of many boarding in Riyadh"
Pros: "All female crew in the cockpit - awesome."
Cons: "Non reclining seats"
