Loved the Premium Economy setup
One of the flight attendants was incredibly rude. She knocked into me five times and never apologized once. She spoke harshly to several other people as well. Unfortunately, I did not catch her name.
They were doing some sort of passport control and only had 1 person for all of economy. It took forever and seemed unnecessary since we all had our documents checked when we were at the check in counter.

Cons: "seats were way too cramped - worst flight ever that way - what has happened to Swiss - there is no room - horrible!!!"
Pros: "Crew was perfectly fine."
Cons: "Departure time was delayed due to over crowding in Zurich airport. Info on connecting flights and transfer requirements was insufficient, no offer to help those with tight connections, e.g., by trying to seat them at front of plane or help them get off faster. Missed connecting flight as a result!!"
Cons: "None hate the experience"
Pros: "Crew was great, seating comfortable."
Pros: "My husband was on a business trip and his company booked him in business class. Economy was overbooked they cave me a free upgrade so I could sit with him!"

Pros: "The AC was working well during the flight. Food was so much better than United and crew was very nice and helpful."

Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were uncomfortable. No air. It was extremely hot."
Cons: "My parents needed special assistance for boarding and changing flights in Zürich and SWISS was just phenomenal. Thank you very muc"
Cons: "Temperature was very hot"
Cons: "When I purchased the ticket I did not know that I have to pay for my bag. It would have been nice to know about this in advance"
Pros: ";Flight attendants very attentive;"
Cons: "Leg space far too tight; could barely move; Unable to see TV screen due to angle, even at max tilt; Food was inedible; perhaps acceptable as dog food; Toilet seat would not stay up for male to pee. Worst international aircraft I've ever experienced. Recommend upgrading before selling any more seats."

Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"
Pros: "Though our flight got delayed, we arrived almost on time."
Cons: "Because the flight was delayed, boarding seemed a bit chaotic. Everybody tried to board at the same time. The seat had technical issues - it would either recline or be upright. The crew had to spend quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to return from a flat bed to the upright position. Entertainment was re-booted 3-4 times during the flight to get it to work consistently."
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: "My own seat had ample legroom, good crew."
Cons: "Faulty headphone jack and person who kneed me in the back whenever I recline my seat. 8 kilo limit on carry-on luggage."
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!

Pros: "Swiss Air the best!!!!"
Pros: "Good staff, good boarding, good announcements"
Cons: "The chairs are so small!"
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!"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I ordered a kosher meal and did not get it. The seats are very uncofmfortable. When the one in front puts their seat back it goes almost in to the face of the one behind."
Cons: "Penalising passengers who travel on board with only a smaller bag by making them put this under their seat in front in front of them whilst others are bringing on two huge bags"
Pros: "Fastest and most thorough service I've ever received!"
Cons: "Bathroom not clean"
Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"
Pros: "Tons of movies, excellent food, clean planes, friendly crew. Flying was a pleasure."
Cons: "Checking in is very inefficient at JFK. There was only one (super slow) teller checking all of economy, while three people checked in business class. There were no automated check-in kiosks. you can imagine the chaos. Unfriendly tellers too. On the way back I was selected for a strip search when I checked in at the gate. So was my husband, but he wasn't told of this until he Was boarding and his ticket beeped on scanning. There was no room for our carry on, because we boarded so late. Annoying."
Pros: "We sat at the exit passage and enjoyed it"
Pros: "comfortable flight"
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 crew members were patient , helpful. Food presentation and taste were good."
Cons: "The most racist and unfriendly and uncivilized people ever."
Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful."
Cons: "Seats are so narrow and led room. Another bathroom is always a plus."
During the boarding process women with small children were not invited to board first and were clumped into general crowd boarding, also during the 3 hr flight there was no food or water offered and I was traveling with a small child who needed water. I would appreciated that next time Luftansa informs that on 3 hr flight there would be no food or water offered so that I can prepare for the flight. In addition, traveling to the plane with the bus and then climbing up the stairs into the aircraft with small child and overhead luggage was probably the worst experience that I had in years traveling. Overall, will try to avoid traveling with Luftansa by all means. Thank you
There were issues with the movies not playing correctly, it would have been nice if we could have been offered a code to use the Wi-Fi.
Flight took off arrive Frankfurt fine ... and then the Pilot parked the plane for 20 minutes while waiting for a steps vehicle to arrive so we all could deplane. This caused us to miss our Naples flight by 6 minutes while running to the next gate.. We are aware of 3 others who also miss their flight. Lufthansa Support said "why miss your flight, your flight arrived on time?" We explained, they provided another flight many hrs later, no meal voucher because our "flight was ontime".
just had delays and gate change
Really disturbing that only 2-3 people were masking in a flight full of maybe 80 passengers. The flight itself was okay.
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The WiFi"
Pros: "Space, seats, movies."
Cons: "I was on a seat at the end, after my seat, the stewardess had their closet and they kept hitting (very strongly) the back of my seat with the door, all the time. They woke me up several times. So not good."
Pros: "Seats very comfortable"
Pros: "Excellent service and food."
Cons: "Seat could really use a real footrest instead of the metal bar."
Pros: "The planes were well maintained. Good entertain emend choices. Food was decent too"
Cons: "It’s an international flight. It is what it is!"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Absolutely amazing service"
Cons: "No any healthy snacks like nuts or just dried veggies or biscuits with less sugar."
Pros: "The crew was really wonderful. They went the extra mile- pun intended- to make sure me and my family were comfortable. They were especially kind to my daughter. The plane was also great, very clean and well equipped. The 8 hours from Munich to JFK flew by very quickly."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and efficient! Flight was fairly on time"
Cons: "Selection of movies was not the best I've experienced"
Pros: "On time, clean plane, good service."
Cons: "Lack of seating at departure gate, costumer agent at gate was rude about standing early for boarding (see first comment). Food was not my style my wife enjoyed it."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Cons: "Hamburg to Frankfurt flight delayed did not flight to losnageles rerouted me to Toronto 8 hours extra awe full"
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."
Cons: "Confusion with boarding process at gate. Once in plane, long delay with no explanation provided. No info about arrival and possible conflict with connecting flight."
Pros: "Nothing really. KLM or LOT are way better."
Cons: "Get your own food or you will stay hungry. 12 hours flight with 2 crappy meals served with no option of getting anything else except candy bars or pretzels."
Cons: "Too uncomfortable for sleep, but that’s every economy flight now."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "The plane, entertainment and crew (except for the one flight attendant who seemed to think she was too good for the job). The personal at the airport were very helpful."
Cons: "A flight attendant was impatient with children, cranky and rude. Other members of the crew were very friendly and let my son check the second floor and cockpit. There was only one choose of main course."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "Anna, she was the supervisor at the check in desk at Denver airport. She was super helpful and very nice. She went above and beyond to help me out with the issue i had... but everyone else i went to get help from were not at all helpful (3 other people), sour face, they probably hate their job. Movie choices on flight to Munich were great. Smooth flight, I didn't lose my bag so that was great too!"
Cons: "Rude crew member. One bad apple ruins the whole bunch. I pre selected my sest at check in on line but got different seat. Not sure why but that was uncalled for. Boarding was 35 minutes late because flight arrived late also. The lady that boarded us was nice and funny."
Cons: "The boarding procedure was unorganized and extremely inefficient. The family sitting in the row across from us had two unparented and very loud children who were disruptive for the entire 10 hour flight. Even on landing the child was not wearing a seat belt. The woman got up to get her stuff out of the overhead compartment even though we were told to stay seated. At no point did any of the crew members do anything in regards to this family and their disruptive actions."
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: "Crew was great. Food was good."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They ran out of food choices, so I had to go with mushroom pasta."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Cons: "The crew we had was very impatient and irritated quickly. The flighy attendent name was Jorge. Starting at the beggining of the flight before we took of I asked him about the head phones. One child had one on tye chair and I asked him if its suppose to be on the seat or given later on. He said it will be passed later and then with a patronizing manner he gave another head phone set and said: "I guess we havw an emergency". On the flight, every time he with the food and drinks he just stood there next to me talking over my head with the passenger begind me. Very uncomfortable, especially when it happens 6 or 7 times. When asking what drink we wanted ( the first time), i replied apple and orange juicewith no ice. He replied, with a patronizing manner "this it European company, not American company. Here we don't put ive if you do not ask for it".The incident that bother me the most is one that involved my kids also. My daughter (3 years old) was a bit scared of the flight, tired and did not want to sit on her chair. We tried to keek her on the chair buy she started crying laying down on the floor infront of our seats. Jorge the flight attendant saw her and told me to put her on the seat. Not in a manner I expect out of soneone in the service industry. I told him we are working on it and we will have her on the chair as soon as we can. When I said that he got irritated and a bit aggressive. For no reason the situation became hostile. The flight attendent on the other side (do not know his name). Can over and asked us what we needed amd if we need help. I told the other flight attendant we need 5 minutes and he said OK. After a few minutes she calmed down. Anotger passenger asked Jorge what beer it is and he replied, with contempt, " its German beer, its good"."
Pros: "I will never use again"
Cons: "Nothing to like , people very rude"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "McDonald's type food. I couldn't eat it at all. TV screen with very slow response, almost impossible to use. Very frustrating on a long flight."
Pros: "good service, professional staff"
Cons: "few cm more leg room in economy will make such a big difference!"
Cons: "Food was salty, couldn't eat it. No replacement available Luggage disembarkment took forever"
Cons: "Seats were very cramped in economy. A big factor on a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Courteous and professional."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped. A little about my height, I'm 5'2" and had a difficult time with no leg room. I sat by the window which gave me a little more wiggle room but it was not the most comfortable flight. Also a note about being able to get up from the seat to move about. The other person in the row had to get up to allow me in and out and I still had to make sure not to pull on the seat in front of me just trying to get up out of the seat. Thankfully, I only had to get out twice through the whole flight."
Pros: "Thai chicken dinner was good"
Cons: "Cold breakfast sandwich. It said on the package it was "oven able", the spread was rock hard, bread hard, would have been better warmed up. Leg room is tight"
Cons: "I paid for a reserved window seat so I could sleep. The passenger next to me was such a large man his arms and shoulder came way over into my seat space and I had to sit in an awkward and very uncomfortable position twisting my back for the entire flight. I cannot believe I paid extra to be in this position. My back still hurts from being in that position for 9 hours. I was miserable the entire way. And I paid extra for this discomfort. The big guy was plenty comfortable as he took up my seat space and slept well. Not happy at all with the flight and how Lufthansa crams people into seats."
Pros: "Just much more professional than US carriers... Also much more leg room in economy class then most US carriers"
Cons: "I will not fly on Air Canada again...Eventhough this is listed as a Lufthansa flight there was nothing Lufthansa about it. Terrible food. Overall miserable"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "The Budapest Airport was not very organized for check-in."
Pros: "Very nice staff."
Cons: "Boarding could has been smoother."
Overbooked flight of airBaltic, tow hours of delay
Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good
Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"
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: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"
Cons: "SOME CREW MEMBERS WERE ABIT RUDE. THEY NEED TO WORK ON THEIR ATTITUDE"
Pros: "the crew was wonderful, we got a nice Wrap and water, wine or coffee for free, not all airlines serve it anymore, we were on time and I got whatsapp message with updates of the flight"
Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"
Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Cons: "Lost a single baggage item, a car seat. Critical for us to leave the airport, and delayed us for over an hour upon arrival. Gave us a loaner car seat that barely fit our child."
Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"
Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"
Pros: "Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,"
Pros: "Crew were great, food, entertainment, seat and everything else was great as well."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Security check at gate; No priority"
Pros: "very attentive crew"
Cons: "Only ham sandwiches on offer! I'm not demanding and would have been happy with cheese."
Pros: "Cabin Crews was extremely good and hospital. Transfer point staff buggy / wheal Chair was good and second to none."
Cons: "Transfer point needs upgrade."
Pros: "They considered my reguest of vegiterian food."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Very good service, teh flight attendants made it as pleasant as possible, plane left on time"
Cons: "tough to sit on a plane for 9.5 hours"
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."
Pros: "Efficient boarding system, clearly signposted. Professional staff"
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."
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."
Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"
Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."
Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."
Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
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: "had problems checking in , in that I was charged for a suitcase! I have since checked my paper work and found thad that I had paid for a case! I will follow this up when I return to the UK"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."
Pros: "Almost missed flight due to line at customs and having to pick up suitcase and check in again, they did wait for me though"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Pros: "Average service and food quality"
Cons: "Inside the business class cabin Boeing 777 only one toilet facility available. People is queuing."
PlusPoints are useless if seats are so rarely available.
Apart from the delays in terms of departure times, the airline experience was so bad, given the medical incident from a passenger sitting at the back of the plane. I was so close to it, and was utterly disappointed by the failure of the cabin crew to control passengers from overcrowding the sick passenger and allow the crew to administer the necessary medical intervention. It all amounted to compromised safety at 30000 feet, and seriously more training on the part of the airline is required in this regard. The other issue I realised is lack of cleanliness and care on the part of cabin staff, with one lady spilling food next to where I was sitting and ignoring the incident completely. I had to ask another to intervene and for which only superficial help was rendered. This is not what I expected, but this is what I got and speaks volumes to a cabin crew which is all female, mature/elderly, and expected to be more hands on to problems of this nature. The food is terrible in economy class, with options very limited. I opted for chicken, but did not know that it had curry in it, so I could not eat my meal further, and so no need to ask for the vegetarian option.
Terrible food n the seats are tight not much room n I am not a big person
Came from overseas (India). Had a 10 hours lay over then my connecting flight got delayed for 3 hours. Aweful experience
I didn’t make this connection
The Dreamliner airplane is wonderful! The seats are comfy with padded armrests. I noticed the difference especially on my last flight which was crowded and had hard armrests. The food was pretty good. My grandson really liked the chicken risotto and pretzel rolls. I had the pasta which was also serve gelato. Yum! Amsterdam has an amazing airport!
While everyone boarded appropriately, there did seem to be confusion regarding who was to board when, as per the gate announcements.
Cons: "The actual flight was fine. It was the delay, followed by what seemed changing info on when it was happening. Every 30 minutes it changed. Five minutes before the flight, the info board said it had been moved to 9:40pm and was changed from Gate 3 to Gate 30, a very long distance to get to. However t"
Pros: "Never got on flight."
Cons: "No delays and compensation for inconvenience. Paid extra for seat upgrade which I never sat in."
Pros: "The staff was accommodating and worked hard to make us more comfortable and be helpful when possible- there was a lot of turbulence so dinner was served late and there was a lot of time we couldn't move about but they made the best of it."
Cons: "The added benefits of the Air New Zealand long flight planes of the entertainment like mini games and the footrest into bed as well as my husband and I not being seated in between two people but being on one side or the other."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. I was traveling with my 11 month old and they were super helpful and very friendly."
Cons: "I was bummed that this plane didn’t have TVs at each seat. You were able to stream all kinds of free movies and shows on the United app but I was holding a baby on my lap and couldn’t use my phone as well."
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "Not much, no internet, small seats, cost doubled because I had to know pay hotel for a night."
Cons: "Flight was 4 hrs late arriving, therefore I missed my connection flight to Dallas. I had to spend the night at a cost of $200.00 at Holiday Inn, arrived 24 hrs later. Not United fault, weather related. This is my 3rd United flight that was delayed by hours. Get first flight out in morning, less chance for hours of delay."
Pros: "Very smooth ride"
Cons: "Foos was mediocre"
Cons: "Bad audio quality on movies"
Pros: "The airplane confort."
Cons: "The airline changed the gate with no announments. We almost Lost the plane."
Pros: "Wide space"
Cons: "I bought selected seat next to window for $185. This is a huge fee that I paid so that I do not get bored alone in a 16.5 hours trip from Singapore to LA. Unfortunately, the windows were electronically controlled by the aircraft. Even though it was daylight for long time, nothing was visible. Sun looked like a moon and color was red. I felt like a stupid and lost my $185."
Cons: "We missed the whole vacation due to United flt. 599 being late into SFO. We missed the Zurich flight by 7 minutes due to a mechanical issue (overhead bin lid would not stay closed.) United customer service was very poor and after 16 hrs. at SO without resolution on flights and schedule, we just came back home. If Siss Air could have waited 10 minutes for 12 or more passengers, we would have been fine. I don't know if United communicated with them or not. This was a disaster!"
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "I liked the movie screen showing me where we were and how much longer it would take to get to the destination. The flight was super smooth."
Cons: "No decaf on an overnight flight. No cookie, only a tiny package of pretzels. Cheapskates."
Pros: "Boarding was easy."
Cons: "WiFi was available."
Pros: "As expected."
Pros: "Flight was on time and efficient"
Cons: "Flight attendants always behave as if they barely have enough patience for you with your silly needs and requests. They border on being rude. This is not just this flight- but a signature of United. Maybe it is time to stop staffing international flights based on seniority, and let someone with more passion for customers come in, or swap staff with Singapore airlines."
Pros: "Although I arrived a few minutes late, the check-in agent managed to get my bag on the flight. When I missed my flight, the agent quickly got me on another flight (with a competitor airline), with no additional charge."
Cons: "The short (10 minute) boarding window contributed to me missing my flight (by a few minutes). Very annoying."
Pros: "Good landing, an I arrived earlier."
Cons: "Flight cancelled with no explanation."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "No internet available without paying and no charging station available in flight."
Cons: "The seating, being separated from my wife!"
Pros: "One ground agent worked hard to communicate what decision the airline had made regarding the flight delay in response to aircraft malfunction. His words helped establish a priority on which passages need to be rebooked"
Cons: "Flight Attendant communication was less than professional. Speed, pitch, and I found it generally annoying"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Wifi could be a bit cheaper"
Cons: "flight was 90 mins late."
Cons: "Such a downgrade from other airlines! Awful! They board backwards. Usually the back seats board on the plane after the special needs people. Makes more sense, people are out of the way. My water was poured into a cup from a big water battle. I like how Jetblue gives me a personal water bottle and a variety of snack option. I was given a "snack mix" on this flight which was not good. I hated this flight and there were NO televisions, or usb ports to charge phones. Never again. They didn't even have enough room for carry on bags for everyone. Thank god I packed light and didn't need to use that option. Good to know United Airlines has crappy everything."
Pros: "My experience with Air Canada was all around pleasant. I would definitely fly with them again. Any negative aspect during my travels was due to their partner United Airlines."
Cons: "If flying within the States we used United Airlines; a partner of Air Canada. The flight itinerary changed numerous times before our departure, including two days before we left. The change added an additional layover, and put us at our destination nearly 6 hours later than out original booking. This meant we lost a decent portion of the first day of our honeymoon. However, we were forced to stay an extra day when our return flight was cancelled. After spending 8 hours in the airport we were informed that our Monday flight was cancelled, and the next available flight would not be until Wednesday! United Airlines let us down on the way to our destination and on our trip home. Air Canada was great, but I dread having to use their partner United Airlines."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Process of going through customs in Halifax instead of Newark was very efficient. I didn't order food or use inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Kansas City airport has to be the worst in the country. Over an hour to get through TSA."
Cons: "I was to be in Kansas City at 4PM and did not get in until after 11PM. Two planes with mechanical problems. The return flight was ahead of schedule all the way."
Cons: "I fly out of Halifax once a week and the flight has let 4 hours late two weeks in a row with out compensation. I missed my connection flight and was forced to sleep in airport. Never again Delta all the way."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Clean comfortable, friendly service"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "I had to pay an extra 155 for a seat in back of 1st class!!"
Pros: "The crew was helpful! Boarding went well."
Cons: "The fact that my husband was seated 18 rows behind us."
Cons: "Multiple delays labeled "operational delays" ended up "canceled due to weather" even though there was no weather anywhere sin the country at the time. Our plan was at the gate from the night before but they just didn't have crew to operate the planes."
Cons: "Seats are way to small and no leg room at all. Will not be flying united again"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great!"
Pros: "1st flight left on time and was comfortable."
Cons: "2nd flight missed due to multiple flights from gate 130. No seats close to gate. Speakers not loud enough. Garbled speakers. To much background noise. Very confusing. Was able to rebook later flight but very inconvenient and not optimum."
Pros: "The crew was nice and accomadating"
Cons: "No leg space"
Pros: "Overall, this was an OK flight; nothing to brag about."
Cons: "The flight attendant told me that I did not need to collect my bag in Toronto and that it would automatically be sent onward to Halifax. DO NOT BELIEVE THIS. All United passengers arriving in Canada MUST manually gather their luggage at baggage claim in Toronto and clear customs manually. ONLY Air Canada has this automatic option. Even if the United flight has an Air Canada code share United passengers MUST clear customs manually. How hard is this for flight attendants to understand?"
Pros: "The Crew. Honestly I hope United doesn't mess up the one thing going for them."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant, the captain was friendly, the chairs were comfortable, and the entertainment options were perfect."
Cons: "I had switched airlines, and before boarding, I had to receive a new boarding pass for United, but it was unclear that I had to do this beforehand. The food seemed to be minimal and not thought out."
Pros: "United Staff very helpful. When initial flight was cancelled, attempts were made to book on anther flight. Unfortunately unsuccessful"
Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances"
Cons: "That it took 13 hours for a 'non-stop' to get from LV to Newark"
Great service and adequate food on inter continental flight, but inter-Europe flights they charge for EVERYTHING including water!!
Business class was regular seat with nobody sitting next to you. Wouldn’t book business for such a flight. No entertainment.
7 hour delay poorly handled by airline
Seat 5A could not lie flat!
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Chocolates were very nice."
Cons: "Come on guys for the price of the ticked you could have served us something more than a sandwich."
Pros: "I liked the (free) upgrade to Premium Economy."
Cons: "Food was ok but I recommend including a small salad with dinner."
Pros: "By far the best of the 4 flights involved in my trip. Everything went smooth except for deboarding, but that's because of the people, not the airline staff. There was constantly an attendant walking the plane offering water refills entire flight. 3 beverage services, 2 meals, and constant water. Very very good experience"
Pros: "All seats were very comfortable and spots where I can view everything and crew were awesome."
Cons: "Local travelers should be offered even water."
Pros: "Nice crew and Good seat despote the âge of the aircraft"
Cons: "New screen and New aircrafts"
Pros: "Way better than the others who fly into Accra via London,slight delay due to technical problem but overall my next choice for sure."
Pros: "It was Air Canada to Geneva and Swiss to Lisbon!"
Cons: "Leave on time Air Canada!!"
Cons: "Bus navette between thé flights"
Pros: "This particular flight was parked at the closest bay to immigration at Heathrow. So a late boarding and arrival was made early through not having a mile long walk to passport control."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding with the plane load of people huddled around the entrance to the boarding area. No guidance from the crew on how to efficiently pack the overhead bins efficiently with passengers helpless to put their treasures into the overhead bins."
Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "No food except for purchase. Expected at least cup of coffee/crackers"
Pros: "Kindliness of crew"
Cons: "Impossibility to by drinks or did with bank cards"
Pros: "The on board staff was very nice. That's pretty much the only thing that I liked."
Cons: "Just about everything. Not only were both flights delayed, one without notice, both the check-in and boarding processes were obscenely long with no obvious reason. On board, the staff was very pleasant but took almost 20 minutes to respond to a page and I only paged them one time. The screens for entertainment had a lot of trouble reading touch for both my seatmate and I and the selections were very limited. My seat did not recline which made for a very uncomfortable flight as I had hoped to be able to sleep. They lost one of my bags and somehow still have not found it more than 36 hours later."
Pros: "The boarding area was spacious and clearly labeled; the plane seats were comfortable, and the flight crew was pleasant."
Cons: "1. The boarding process was chaotic - it was not clear where a line was to form or if there was an ordered process for boarding. 2. As an economy passenger, I was to purchase a meal between Geneva and Brussels. Since I didn't want a meal I was surprised to learn I also had to pay for a small, regular coffee."
Pros: "I missed it"
Cons: "I missed it"
Cons: "They didn't served me food"
Pros: "The flight attendant crew were all very friendly and so good at giving out drinks and water and whatever we needed. I felt really pampered and I wasn’t even in first class. Brussels airlines literally saved my whole trip back from becoming a nightmare because I had a really short connection time in the Brussels airport. I was sprinting to the gate to make my flight and was running real late and they had waited for me! The staff at the gate and at the passport control all were very helpful. I was very impressed by everybody involved and so appreciated that I could make it home as planned instead of having to find a new flight."
Pros: "Email and text kept me updated"
Cons: "Flight delays"
Pros: "Worst business class seats. Regular seats with no one in the middle seat."
Pros: "The crew was calm, professional and polite."
Cons: "There was a delay of almost an hour on my first leg of the trip, which meant that I was really rushing to get to the gate for my connection in Brussels. It would have been nice to have some sort of express option for that, since it was the airline's fault that we were late."
Pros: "It is a quick trip which is nice."
Cons: "The staff for SN Brussles is very rude to Africans. They are super disrespectful and it is very obvious how tacist they are. It is uncomfortable flying witha stafflike that. Also our flight had electrical and engine problems at our first stop in Freetown. Once we landed in Monrovia, it took about 35mins for them to let us off the plane because the doors were not working and opening up. Once we finally got off the plane, it took a whole 2 hours for them to get our baggage e off the plane because spmething was wrong and they couldnot access the baggage to take it off. I am aware that planes can “fly with one engine”, but flying a plane with one engine along with it having electrical problems is not safe and A RISK! why take that risk of something bad happening, not only would lives of innocent people and their crew get lost, but that is a million dollar assest that could get lost and a PR nightmare. It is a shame they took that risk. They also dodnt tell us until we landed. Had I known before we took off at Freetown I would have gladly fot off and found another mode of transportation to get to my final destination. SN Brussels is know to send their sh*tty planes to Africa, because there are always problems with the planes heading to that continent. It is just another obvious proof of their racism."
Pros: "Lots of empty seats so more room"
Cons: "Had to pay for tea/coffee. Was free on way over so don’t understand this"
Pros: "They gave us a pillow and blanket so we could sleep. They offered a good selection of movies and other entertainment. The airline staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seating was cramped but all airlines treat their three class clients like cattle."
Cons: "Service for my mom was great!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, no refreshments. Everyone on the flight was suprised to find that food and drink cost money. The entire flight, the crew was selling something and you could not pass in aisle or even use toilet for half the fight. No entertainmrnt on a flight of 4.5 hrs and this was not supposed to be a low cost flight."
Pros: "Smooth flight Pleasant staff Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Super late due to poor management of runway construction in Brussels No entertainment in the cabin"
Pros: "Clean and somewhat comfortable"
Pros: "Be on time"
Cons: "Food, no comfort, movies and music boring"
Pros: "Not too much"
Cons: "I'll begin with the order of sequence of all that went wrong: 1. A huge queu while we were waiting for checkin in Rome (waited for more than 30 minutes) 2. The steward didn't agree to take a gymnastics hoop to the aircraft, despite its being super light. By the way, the inbound flight the hoop was taken into the aircraft; 3. We (family of 3) were seated separately, what made a huge stress to our small daughter. 4. There were no AC socket in Brussels airport (there were, but not charging) during transfer. 5. Our baggage was not delivered, which is very unpleasant :("
Cons: "Coffee costing 3 euros on flight to Venice Uncomfortable seats. My husband and I had to sit apart because airline didn't check us through from Washington DC We will not be using Brussels Airlines"
Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary"
Cons: "Wish there had been a place to plug in phone or other USB stuff"
Cons: "The flight was similar to a low-cost airline but I was not informed of this when booking. Uncomfortable seats with very little legroom, and food was only available by purchase. Not worth paying the cost of a regular flight for a 5 hour flight!"
Cons: "This is a low cost airline. No food, no entertainment, At least the crew was polite."
Pros: "On time Polite crew"
Pros: "On time Polite crew They gave an "express pass" for people with short connection"
Pros: "Nice to get a snack on such a short flight. I enjoy travelling on the small E145. Small plane means fast boarding and deboarding. Also it's great to have a seat to oneself - both window and aisle!"
Pros: "The confort"
Cons: "The delay and the food. There was sand in the fish"
Pros: "Good seats."
Cons: "No infotainment screen."
Pros: "The crew were very respectful and professional did not like everything from Accra to Brussels ."
Cons: "We pay the crew so they need to respect us. One guy among the crew members was very disrespectful and unprofessional ."
Pros: "I'm not certain this will get to where it needs to go, but I want to give a special thanks to my flight attendant on Brussels Airlines flight SN2712. I don't know what her name was but she was the younger of the two flight attendants and she provided the drinks in the main cabin. My girlfriend experienced sudden and traumatic pain due to the pressure change on the descent and so I hit the call button and when the flight attendant came over and saw what was going on she knew exactly what to do: she ran to the back of the plane to gather some cups and fill them with hot water-soaked napkins then sprinted back to give them to my girlfriend to show her how to hold them. She was so fast, so kind, and so effective. I wish I knew her name so I could tell her thank you one last time. Please pass this along to her if possible!"
Pros: "Nothing. Wanted it to be over already"
Cons: "Thw flight attendents gave a really bad service. They forgot to bring me food. The plain was really small and crowded... There was a lot of noise."
Cons: "Not allowing free seat selection when the ticket is purchased."
Cons: "Could not get my boarding pass before reaching my last terminal because it was not ready from Montreal or Toronto, and no staff were available elsewhere in the airport. this prevented me from making necessary purchases to bring with me to Kinshasa, my final destination."
Cons: "Seats had no cushioning on bottom or back"
