Seats could’ve been more comfortable

Rued and unhelpful airport staff when asking for directions. Food is really bad.

The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"

Cons: "N,/A"
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Pros: "Business class setup Bar Staff"
Cons: "Being seated 5 rows and a bulk head away from my wife. Configuration of Two class A380 business class is at the back of the plane with all that increased movement and you have to wait for economy to exit before you can get off. Your diluting the benefits guys for economy profits."

They made a small mistake and forgot to serve me dessert but the mistake was remedied immediately when I informed them of the slip up."
Cons: "I paid a LOT of money for a Business Class seat and yet I was never notified that my flight was going to be delayed in departing by 12+ hours until after I arrived at the airport. According the the flight crew, they were notified at 9am that morning and the airline had my phone number and email, yet I arrived at the airport at 8pm because I was never notified! I spent $50 to take a taxi to the airport and now I had a 10am departure the following morning! I was given no compensation for this massive issue. Just "sorry, come back tomorrow!" I was very upset! My choices were either take ANOTHER $50 taxi home that night and then another $50 taxi back in the morning or get a $150 hotel room at the airport. So glad I paid THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS for my Business Class seat (a big spend for me as I've never flown Business Class before but felt like a special treat for a special occasion). WTF, Emirates!"

Pros: "crew amazing,"
Pros: "Everything! It just awesome"
Cons: "Nothing can be better, an awesome flight"

Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "Food."
Pros: "Never spending too long waiting for anything."
Cons: "More realistic options to upgrade. Example I can board a train in London and upgrade to first class for £20 to Edinburgh. If you have a coach class or business class empty. Have capacity to feed extra or not. Last minute upgrades can be both a revenue stream and another option to further satisfy some customers. Particularly older generations that can afford and would fund such a win win appealing."
Pros: "Food"

Cons: "The seats were very tight and the food was okay, but the staff was great."

Pros: "The Crew The Food"
Cons: "The fact that we (my son and I) had to wait at the airport for over 9hours transiting. right after a 9hr 35miins journey."

Cons: "Food poor- no variety"
Pros: "Personal courteous service"

Pros: "Everything was perfect! From boarding the flight, decor, hospitality, clean, comfortable and my special meal selection was always right. The flight attendants greeted me before meals and insured me that they received my meal order."
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."
Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"

Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "We sat on tarmac for 3 hours with no explanation from the crew or cockpit. Because of the delay, everyone missed their connections in Doha. The crews could have jet a couple of the flights a little longer for people to make their flights. The desk was filled with people and was very chaotic. There were so many people working there but no one could give you a straight answer so it was very confusing. I had to wait at the airport for 4 hours to get it sorted and was given a food voucher for $50 for the entire stop over. I asked about a flight voucher and they laughed and said they didn't do that even though they were the ones at fault. The crew was nice and the food was good but I will never fly quatar airways unless they remedy the situation."
Pros: "Wonderful friendly service yet not overpowering. Clean airplane esp. clean bathrooms with efficient amenities. Fruits were sweet."
Cons: "Must include the latest films. I find the Hollywood films rather passe. Main courses not to my liking. The fish was overcooked and became very fluffy. Yes, fluffy is the word. Salmon was too salty. Asian food was not up to standard."

All good .

Pros: "The food was great and the crew was very helpful. For my first international flight things couldn't have went smoother"

Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Tgey don't put much effort on the special meal I order."
Pros: "Food was good. Service was excellent"
Cons: "Both of the flight were 2-3 hours late"
Pros: "I was able to get last minute exit window seats, which gave me unlimited leg room. I did not mind pledging to help with emergency exits. With boarding, they did away with the boarding groups, so whoever lined up earlier got to go on the plane, of course after the first class and business. This all worked fine."
Cons: "The cutlery for the meals were real metal, which felt nicer than plastic."
Pros: "good service."
Cons: "seat cushion on bottom is not cushion enough, so my butt kind of hurt."
Pros: "Everything looks alright for a short trip."

Pros: "The price: my round trip ticket from Tokyo Haneda to JFK was only 850USD The layover is only 2 hours which is bearable and enough time to find the boarding gate and a little shopping."
Cons: "Everything else. You can check-in online within 48 hrs before your flight, but there is no QR code produced on their app for paperless check-in. The food was terrible, and the seats were not made for long flights. I really felt the "economy" vibe. They only provide disposable slippers, but everything else you need to check the lavatories if there were toothbrushes or mouthwash packets left. Overall, I will still consider flying this airline for any emergency flight back to the US, but if there will be a compeittive airline, maybe i'd try another. Their business class seem enticing.. maybe comsoder it too."
Pros: "Great service, comfy spacious seats, decent meal service"
Cons: "Food was a bit bland"
Pros: "Great flight. I was on a united flight to sf. Hideous. Fly asiana!"
Pros: "The economy seats are quite roomy compared to other companies. The planes and Incheon airport get upgraded every year. Inheon is probably the best place for lay-over with plenty of options for acivities, from short and long tours, Korean bath house wity overnight stay option, easy and fast immigration, and great customer service always."
Cons: "There is still some language barrier with the crew, though much less so compared to other Asian companies. They made up for it in hospitality. Food is usually good. The sandwich this time was cold cut whoch is not as appetizing for breakfast. But"
Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Seat needs more cushioning"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The seats we comfortable and the food was pretty good. I would fly Asiana again without hesitation."
Cons: "Nothing. Had a great experience."
Pros: "Nice choice of recent movies. Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was somewhat delayed."
Pros: "Very good service"
Pros: "They kept changing the flight schedule on the spot and kept us waiting at the airport. Some of the flight attendant s of asiana airlines were rude."
Pros: "Delayed flight for almost two hours while all passengers were already inside the plane( korea to manila) . So hot inside the plane, no air condition, no food, no comfort measures given to passengers. They should have not let passengers to board knowing that there is mechanical problem. It would have been more comfortable if passenger just waited at the airport gate."
Pros: "Good serving"
Pros: "just the low price"
Cons: "very rude wheelchair attendants , really bad food, dirty lavatories. the worst part are the really really rude wheelchair attendants , disrespectful to the older and special needs passengers. they were shouting at each other and were not attentive to the passengers ' needs or comfort."
Pros: "For the first time flying was impressed with everything . Crew was friendly and attentive."
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing, as was the food. Both were presented exquisitely and put US carriers to shame."
Cons: "The only negative I have for the flight was on a very old 747. The seats were definitely feeling their age, with the bulkhead seat's entertainment system a bit of a beast to get folder out from under the seat."
Pros: "Polite attendants, good Korean food (to a non-Korean at least haha), decent entertainment, quite comfortable. Would flight again"
Cons: "Long wait for baggage at the end -- seemed like it was not the norm though"

The crew and food were great - the ground crew in Zurich was extremely slow in helping guests.

Cons: "The legroom is cramped a bit."
Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"
Pros: "They magically appeared with water when I got thirsty and were all great. Veg entree from Hiltl good but a little surprising. Baked apple slices on top of mac & cheese? Sure, why not.? And 2 chocolate bars this flight!"
Cons: "Again could not check in online., or at self-serve kiosk at airport. General complaint to all airlines: You can do better with boarding efficiency."
Pros: "Service and food where good."
Cons: "Sound only came out of one side of head phones, tried multiple sets."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was a little hot"
Pros: "100% the best flight experience I've ever had flying. Wish I flew to Europe more so I could fly with Swiss more often. Thanks!"
Pros: "Efficient check-in, boarding and on-board experience. Great seat and entertainment. Food also very decent."
Cons: "I find Swiss’ pricinh policy for on-board internet totallh ludicrous and an outright insult. Also, I sometimes appreciate a bit more empathy in the way things get announced - no announcement for security video or when they disrupt a movie with their Swiss commercial clips - they just turn it on. Not abtreat experience."
Pros: "Flight is super short and was delayed Boarding is terrible - everyone jammed up and pushing in Just an average boarding"
Cons: "Plane was late Self checkin is not for everyone and good half of people did not know how to use the machine and it greatest delayed the process .. cattle is transported better !!!"
Cons: "The airline changed a seat reservation after I paid for it. The Swiss support staff told me on the phone they would call me back. They never called back. I called again and was told the seats are changed and I can’t do anything anymore. The return flight seats also disappeared from the reservation. I had also paid for it. The support staff when I called again put back the seats for my return flight. I tried to check in online. Not working. Tried at least 50 times. Not working. Called the support staff. They told me to call the check in support center. I called the check in support center at least 50 times where mi was told the staff are busy and could not answer the call. I called at 6:00am next day where I was told by the check in support staff that my ticket had an issue which they did not know exactly what was the issue but prevented me to do a check in. I drove more than 2 hours to the airport where finally I could check in but I was told that my return flight seats had disappeared again. They managed to put them back again. I hope this time it’s finally ok. The support staff on the phone told me I could get reimbursed for the seat reservation I had paid for for the on going flight. The Swiss staff at the airport told me there would be no refund. Swiss is terrible"
Pros: "It was nice because plane was half empty so had quicker attention from stewards - everything was good."
Pros: "I hope this carrier grows by leaps and bounds. The plane was new & clean, the pilots executed flawless takeoff & landing, the flight attendants were friendly to a fault, the plane left on time & arrived early. Round trip Orlando-Venice was $980 round trip. The only niggling detail was the somewhat limited selection of movies."
Pros: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Cons: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
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."
Pros: "Just like everything else the Swiss do, our Swiss air flight was like a well oiled machine. Very friendly crew, very good meals, lots of creatures comforts; blankets, pillows, headphones, warm washcloths in the morning. Great overall experience."
Cons: "The seat room is every bit as tight as any other airline, so if you're tall, and flying an overnight, upgrading to a seat with leg room might be worth the extra cost. Select your roomy seat early - they go fast!"
Pros: "Legroom!!!"
Pros: "Crew was good on the overseas flight. The purser especially, and his attitude rubbed off on the others."
Cons: "No wifi. Entertainment screen, etc was ancient by competitors' standards. Very difficult to operate, and I could not get it switched off once on. The screen light was in my face all night! I noticed another passenger with the same problem. Screen kept going blurry too. I booked Swissair because the price was good, now I regret that."
Pros: "Service."
Cons: "Leg room."
Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Three and a half hours delay due to technical difficulties. Food was only a small cheese sandwich and a bottle of water. Could have given us a little more food. Seat on flight did not recline. Extreme turbulence for half an hour, very scary, thought we would never make it! All in all, a bad experience."
Pros: "Boarding was on time."
Cons: "Departed 20 minute late. The tv screen(one per 4 rows) was too small to see. I don't remember getting ear phones."
Pros: "Croissants and chocolate on an early morning flight"
Pros: "Traveling with 3 kids, Swiss kept our seats the same, had our special meals sorted, crew was kind and courteous. Entertainment for everyone."
Cons: "Overnight flight lights too bright, economy seats very narrow (and that's all we ever fly), it was extremely difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Friendly and professional crew, good movie selection"
Cons: "Not enough room in the seats. Could not open my lap top in avaialable space. Very tight feeling."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever experienced. The seats were too small. It was torture for a 12 hour flight. Need more space and padding in the seats."
Pros: "Service is above average, flight attendants very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Only one choice of the lunch dishes was available, since they had run out of the second one."
Pros: "The Crew was wonderful."
Pros: "Crew was very nice & humble"
Cons: "Food quality could be better it was tasteless very low standards, & boarding crew in Chicago or in Mumbai needs training because they don't want to give you a choice for food or the seat From Zurich to India & they runout off Nonveg food & crew was telling they have only veg take it or leave it samething Zurich to Chicago if the boarding crew do write thing then this could be avoided ."
Cons: "THERE'S SOO LITTLE LEG SPACE BETWEEN SEATS ON THE ECONOMY SECTION IT IS VERY UNCONFORTABLE!!!"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "I paid extra for seat selections and then they did not give me those seats."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Passengers crowding the lane"
Pros: "The best in flight service. I've taken Swiss air multiple times from Zurich to LA and I will never take another airline. The food is great, plenty of snacks and drinks. Great entertainment and the cabin crew treats you very well."
Pros: "Best entertainment package of Movies/TV/Food available on commercial airlines."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good food and entertainment. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "At the check-in gate there was pandemonium. It was not clear how to proceed. The lines were long and disorderly. Since I had passed through passport control, I didn't think I would need to go through again just before boarding. I was in line, ready to have my boarding pass scanned when I was told I needed to have my passport checked! I had to step out of line, go back and get my passport checked, then go back in line to board! I could not get an assigned seat until I got to Zurich. I needed an aisle seat (I had a bladder infection and would need to use the toilet often). It was left up to me to negotiate with my neighbor to switch seats--- the crew would not help at all. I was cramped in my seat. The man in front of me put his chair too far back; I was difficult to work on my laptop with so little room between me and the table. The snack was horrible---uncooked, tasteless calzone and ice cream."
Cons: "There was a supposed difficulty with my entry in Europe when I tried to Check into Chicago. I thought that I had to cancel my flight. Swiss air representatives had to do much consultation, which took nearly an hour, while I was standing there the whole time. At the end, I was thanked for my patience and told all should be well and not even given a small upgrade for the distress this caused me. Traveling is disagreeable in general now, and personally, even moreso after this episode."
Pros: "video on demand, great movie selection. Food and wine included at no additional charge, and it was good."
Cons: "Cramped seat, with equipment box in my floor area, made overnight flight very uncomfortable. Didn't sleep well."
Pros: "crew was attentive"
Cons: "having to take a bus from the terminal to board"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled. Had to sleep in Zurich overnight. Airline covered the hotel and dinner bill though"
Cons: "Next morning the flight was delayed . Lost time in Rome and a night in Rone hotel"
Pros: "Always replacement"
Cons: "None"
