In row with endlessly screaming toddler and should have been reseated as there were open options

Plane was late so luggage never made it to connecting flight. I’ve been home 2 days and still do not have my luggage.

Our connecting flight to the US only had around a 25 minute layover! And our flight from Seville to Zürich was delayed! Had our flight from Zürich to Washington DC not been delayed we would have missed our flight to the US. We didn’t even know it was delayed until sprinting from the A terminal to the E terminal. Our flight from Seville landed in Seville 10 minutes after our the door was supposed to close for our flight from Zürich to the US. Not cool! Several other Swiss air passengers were in the same position as us, which I could tell bc we were all running for our lives in your airport. We booked a flight from Seville to Washington DC and the time between connecting flights was not enough and that’s not an acceptable position to put a traveler in. Especially one who spent over $1000 on their tickets.

Leave on time so i dont miss my transit flight. Also make it so coffee/tea is free amd not a paid service. The staff treat us like dogs having us wait everywhere. The buses had no ac and we had to wait inside packed like sardines. Horrible experience. Never flying again hopefully and not using kayak.

Good BUT four days later I still don’t have my luggage. It never arrived. !!!!

Didn’t get my luggage from layover in Zurich until 3 days later even though my luggage was marked priority and short layover, but my husband got his when we landed

Far above average. The level of quality and service has really improved and passed most US carriers on this route. Go Edelweiss!

Kudos to Swiss!! My wife and I thought Swiss was like flying years back: good food service, refreshments, friendly and courteous crew! We look forward to another trip to Europe next year, and it will be a priority to hopefully fly Swiss, thank you! We strongly can say from experience - the treatment (food, drink, entertainment) in service for Economy Class is unmatched!!!

SO disappointing. I spent so much money on this ticket, for them to cancel and not be able to rebook me in time. They were very unhelpful, and condescending throughout the whole Swiss airport. Will not be flying again.

Super friendly crew. Leg space and entertainment system are below average

There was no entertainment offered or expected, so please disregard my readings of that component. The flight was fantastic. Efficient boarding, takeoff, and even early arrival!

We got our seats and was surprised at the half empty plane, so had a very good hostess and we enjoyed the whole flight back home, so the only thing we had to wait for was the passenger assistance that was not there and had to wait about 20 mins on the jetway.

a/ c way too cold in Miami airport. Ridiculous cold temperatures. I was suffering the hole time.

The flight was on time, the plane was at the gate, and then the excuses started. First, it was a part that was needed, then it was short on staff, but they're due to arrive soon, and finally cancellation. Two large triple 7 planes to London were both canceled, leading to over 600 people looking for another flight, which of course was impossible. I had a one week holiday and was forced to spend two nights in hotels in Chicago. Just appalling. I doubt I will ever use American Airlines again.

The flight was very late. They had us stand in the jet bridge (no seats or air) for a very long time after delaying boarding well over an hour to not time out. The plane was still not cleaned from the flight before ours, so food and debris covered seats and rested in chair pockets. Staff was very rude.

Horrible. Never again. Wouldn’t let us use the lounge. We had to pay for another lounge to have access.

Very good flight. Delayed but no due to any fault of the airline. Food service is half a sandwich and crackers with a chocolate pot for a 5 hour flight so eat before boarding.

Seats did not recline. That is none of the seats on the plane are designed to recline. If you want food you need to purchase it. We flew round trip Warsaw to London- both flights were late.

Every host and pilot were very professional. My next flight would be upgraded from economy to the next group.

Awful. Delay, lost vacation time and travel time now more than 24h
