They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."

Pros: "Brand new plane and SUPER comfortable (even in coach!)."
Pros: "The food was amazing, the in-flight entertainment was amazing, and the flight attendants were amazingly kind and beautiful. :) Swiss Air has set the standard on airline food, serving Swiss Chocolate and Gruyere cheese on the flight! It was the best!"

Cons: "I paid to upgrade my seats and they were still tiny. I could not straighten my legs. The armrest also doesn’t go up all the way, so couples flying overnight together, beware!"
Pros: "Not very much to like. No effort to enhance customer service, accommodate customer needs. I fly a lot of regional and international airlines, was truly underwhelmed."
Cons: "I landed at Zurich airport at 6am with an 11 hour wait and tried to get onto an earlier us bound flight. The ground crew were awful and rude!. The dint make any effort to smile, look at me in the face or ask how I was doing!. Instead she took one look at my ticket and said “ sorry you bought through an agent, I can’t help you”. When I tried to ask if in future it is advisable to book through Swiss airlines directly, the customer service agent looked at me and said “ that’s your problem”- then she turned to her friend and kept talking! Honestly! . The airport terminal E is grey, drab and boring. No TV and only 2 hour of WiFi. I was told I had to pay to use one of their lounges just to get a recliner chair to lay my head for 11 hours. I felt like I was in a holding cell- and the flight was delayed by an hour, had a gate change that they dint tell us till less than 1hour- boy was I glad to leave Zurich!. If that is Swiss hospitality, they have a long way to go. Save your money and use another airline. You will be much happier- trust me."
Pros: "Economy very tight but whose isn’t. Best selection of movies relative to the competition."
Cons: "Always when one sits in the back of the plane, they run out of one meal. The food was ok. Not sure why they serve ice cream and cheese as a snack."

Pros: "Swiss Air the best!!!!"

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!"
Pros: "Flight is conformable.. Crew was fine."
Cons: "experience at the Zurich airport was not good. They checked our passports 3 times before we got to our gate. Swiss airlines should account for these things when they give options for the connections. we had about and hour and half layover and did not even have time to have coffee or anything before a 9+ hour flight. We just ran from one flight to another and barely made to our flight.."
Pros: "Good clean service that Swiss is known for."

Pros: "Friendly service, superfast check-in"

Cons: "Cervise was not so good was waiting almost 3 hours on check in"
Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."
Pros: "The larding was terrible. I came in a wheelchair but am able to walk short distances. I spoke to man at the gate about boarding early and he said he would come and get me.

Pros: "The courteous and helpful crew. The food and snacks."

Cons: "Cons: They never reduced their fares & surcharges after fuel prices came down this spring; and to add insult to injury, they started charging a $ 29.- seat reservation fee. Loyal customers should not have to pay extra fees! Peter (86)"
Pros: "Good seats - comfortable Attentive service"
Cons: "Found my business class seat given away to a lady with a dog. Mine was window but with extra table next to aisle. She had aisle seat but with exactly the same configuration. Idea was she would place the dog on the table space next to her seat. It would be exactly the same for both seats. Do not know what they were thinking. There were other business class seats on the other side that had the table space ext to the window away from the aisle. That would make sense for the lady with dog. Business class was full and I was the last to get on, 45 minute connection in Zurich from terminal A to E, my seat was given. But as I objected, they moved the dog lady and gave me back my seat. But they never asked a person in the seat that would have made sense to give her to trade seats."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Professional and polite crew and comfy seats."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, late as usual and with no organization of any sort. Terminal E in Zurich has no air conditioning, so you wait in heat and no air. Also who came up with the design to put toilets upstairs where you ave to go using small and crowded hallways."

Pros: "Crew and efficiency"
Cons: "Too hot in the plain"
Pros: "Ataturk airport, meals"
Cons: "Turkish airlines staff are rude"
Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Pros: "Very attentive staff who gave us an extra meal and checked in on us while my girlfriend was sick from food poisoning the day before."
Cons: "Far too few agents at check in. The signage wasn't clear and we waited in line for 15 minutes before realizing we had to be in a different line, for which there was only one attendant checking in for three different flights all leaving at the same time. When there are three layers of security at Attaturk airport, everyone waiting to check in were rightfully worried they may miss their flight."
Pros: "Our Turkish Airlines flight was late boarding and passengers were upset about not being able to make their connecting flights. The crew handled it well, but anxiety was high. The food is always good and one of the reason I fly Turkish Airlines on a regular basis."
Cons: "Passport Control at Ataturk International was a nightmare with hundreds of people ahead of us in the queue. No Police to secure the area, so people rushed the line pushing us aside and jumped the queue, this happened repeatedly. I would advise people NOT to fly into this airport and expect to make your connecting flight, because it doesn't play out well at all. We were in line for 2 hours and witnessed people pushing, shoving, yelling at strangers and generally acting like animals. I found the whole experience highly disturbing."

Pros: "Attentiveness Professionalism"
Pros: "I really enjoyed having all of my concerns over delayed flights and possible missed connections rudely dismissed or outright ignored."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late boarding and spent nearly 45 aboard the plane waiting to depart. No updates from the staff about our departure status or boarding status throughout the almost 2 hour delay. Got an email from Turkish airlines about this issue and they claim the flight was only 25 minutes late departing. Exaggerations occur sometimes when people are inconvenienced so I checked my call logs and social media accounts and found I completed multiple phone calls and status updates from New York over and hour after Turkish airlines tells me I left. One of us is lying and at this point I'm inclined to agree with facebook that I was still in JFK airport an hour after my flight was scheduled to leave when I updated my status to gripe about the delays."
Pros: "Loved how friendly the staff was and wanted you to feel at home"
Cons: "Nothing out of the ordinary, seats can be a bit cramped but that can't be helped on a long flight"
Pros: "The flight took off and landed as scheduled. Boarding was quick and without any hassle. Food was served with in an effective way, and in a friendly manner. Food and drinks were of a good quality and passengers were taken into consideration. Thank you very much."
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about. I did not at any time feel disappointed about anything."
Pros: "The staff from check in to on-plane service was very friendly and courteous and clearly did their best. The suppers were phenomenal! and the other meals were ok."
Cons: "The computers at the check in desk kept going down, but the staff handled this issue very well. The gates REALLY need a digital board that displays upcoming flights so that I can confirm I am at the right gate."
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Pros: "Always courteous service."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we had to run for our connection."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Cons: "Bad bad bad screens on such a long flight are a disgrace. Blurry and dark. Very old. I am a smiles and miles member and fly a lot THY but this was really bad."
Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "Crew was confused and didn't work well, food horrible and they lost my luggage . Bad customer service after lost luggage from call center. Rude customer service representative and inaccurate information many times. Very frustrating"
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "I had a ticket for the 7th and there was no flight on the 7th. I ultimately flew to JFK instead of IAD causing a lot of problems for me and my family that was to pick me up. Not sure I will fly Turkish Airlines again"
Pros: "Turkish staff places the comfort and convenience of their passengers high on their priorities. Crew is friendly and efficient, very helpful. I preferred it over my Emirates experience"
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."

Cons: "The airplane is not as good as you would expect from the best airline in europe"
Pros: "Food is always great on Turkish airlines. Entertainment was also great."

Cons: "Wine program for international business class was sub-par"
Cons: "We landed into Ataturk airport while a coup was going on! And no one from Turkish Airlines was anywhere to be found for the next 16 hours."
Pros: "Included meal and entertainment"
Cons: "AC only on for takeoff and landing. Not much water so became very dehydrated and overly warm."
Pros: "The flight was effective, on time, the service was very good. Good food"
Cons: "I couldn't understand the entertainment computer. I experienced a much more friendly one at different airlines, and they had a rich variety of content and games. Please also make sure that all staff is fluent with English - few of them seem either not to be communicative, or not confident to speak."
Pros: "It was a 55 min flight and they actual fed us with great food and drinks, and the plane had impersonal touch screans , witch is unheard of on such a short flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "All"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"

They ask for electronic vaccination status to be downloaded but then they ask to see it again!!! Whats the point of downloading?? Also economy class was allowed to board through business and were not told to go to a different line

So now even with a 200€ flight you get only water and a piece of chocolate, no more food. Aircraft was 30 minutes late and no information on connection flights.

Cons: "The ife screen was extremely slow and unresponsive."
Pros: "Flight attendant warm, courteous and authoritative at same time."

Pros: "Space in cabin, friendly crew and nice food"
Cons: "Shorter stoppage ;)"
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"

Pros: "Short flight but staff very attentive, food good."
Pros: "The crew was intuitive and caring. Very nice and polite"

Pros: "Very friendly people. Security guy helped me to get to the wifi at the airport. I could spend my waiting time very productive way sorting out my business emails:)"
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "We were warmly welcomed on board by the flight captain. I had not expected this. My wife has some physical challenges and received special treatment, in fact we were accorded priority in boarding as she had to temporarily use a wheel chair. Me and my daughter all enjoyed the privilege by association."
Cons: "My wife is diebetes, we had requested for a special diet but although this was documented on the air ticket, there was oversight and she had to make do with normal menu. Fortunately there was no adverse consequences."

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"

Cons: "Late baggage, incompetent staff who each told me a different lie about when the bag would arrive"
Cons: "Incorrect advice from check in staff at Dublin re transit visa requirements"
Cons: "I wish boarding by Priority was better organized"
Cons: "I was not allowed to take my cabin bag and was forced to check it in at the checkin counter. The reason mentioned to me was the flight is small. Contradictorily, travellers after me in the queue were allowed to take cabin bags."
Pros: "Overall decent experience. The crew was attentive, captain informative."

Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Flight was on time. We boarded and left on time. Flight attendants were friendly and courteous. I was happy to get a complementary sandwich and drink on such a short flight. We arrived at our destination earlier than expected. Seats were no frills, but decent. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Boarding is stressful. A free for all. I wish they would announce and board one section at a time. I'm traveling with children! I don't want extra stress of people being so pushy. Also,on arrival the bus back to the terminal was similar."
Pros: "It was all great!"
Cons: "I was denied boarding on the Dublin to Munich leg of my connecting flight from Newark to Munich. My ticket was booked through Lufthansa, but the transatlantic leg of my trip was operated by United. When checking in with United in Newark, I received two boarding passes, one for each leg of the trip. I arrived on time in Dublin for my flight to Munich and tried to board the plane for Munich with the boarding pass I had printed in Newark. After scanning my ticket, the Lufthansa employees at the gate informed me that they had no record of me or my plane ticket in their system. I showed them the email confirmation for my ticket, but they still could not find any record of my ticket in their online system. The employees seemed more concerned with boarding all passengers as quickly as possible than assisting me. After being denied boarding, I had to go back through passport control to change my flight, and ended up getting to Munich nearly 6 hours behind schedule and missed an entire day of vacation. A Lufthansa employee told me that out of every partner in the STAR alliance, United is the ONLY airline they have had this problem with. I find this inexcusable, I will be AVOIDING ANY United/Lufthansa connecting flight from now on."

Cons: "sardines!"
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."
