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."

I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Cons: "Same movies"
Cons: "it was late and it was not informed until we all sat."

Pros: "It was a good flight and was able to rest a bit."
Cons: "Seat size is horrible. Will not be flying Emirates next time, instead will fly Qatar."
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Pros: "Very relaxed, good food and beverages. Loved the bar/lounge area. Staff very friendly and helpful. Will definitely fly Emirates again."
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "My seat was changed after I had booked and paid for flight."
Pros: "Affordable price"
Cons: "Unfavourable flight schedule- Midnight arrival.. tired."
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "The seat sizes were really small and I didn't get the initial seat s that I requested for. The crew were not very professional when it came to serving all that were on board."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Pros: "Everything was Great !!"
Pros: "Good space"
Cons: "It's unfortunate that when you order a special meal you dont get your drinks until after you have eaten your meal. and if you end up waiting then you end up having a cold meal. It would be great if this could be changed"
Pros: "Great leg room in economy, plane A380 very new and modern."
Pros: "Lovely aircraft loads of space"
Pros: "Most the food is ishen food . Should be difrant"
Cons: "Stuff"

Food quality was very poor.

I was so happy and at ease with the crew 100 %the best ever

Good

Great

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "Excellent crew. Very good food. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "Crew and qsuite were top notch. The dine on demand is the best. One little nip pick. The crew knew I was going to sleep. It was a 1:20am departure flight and did not offer to make the bed/mattress..."
Cons: "Wish we could’ve park at the gate instead of bus over to terminal. Given Doha is their hub, should have been able to accommodate that. Also, do they update the movies every month? Still the same movies as in June."
Pros: "Service by the crew was outstanding, but special mention to Deepika who made sure I had a Business Class experience out of this world, always smiling and checking if I needed anything"
Cons: "The food and the wine selection did not impressed me. Qatar needs to make some changes."
Pros: "The crews are awesome"
Pros: "Plane design was nice"
Cons: "Selecting food online was misleading; felt we had to select something then. We learned later that it was just special diets that required online selection."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Pros: "The food and the crew were excellent. Highly recommend the chicken massals"
Cons: "The seats in economy class were a little too close for comfort"
Pros: "The overall experience"
Pros: "The service was excellent, the hostesses were very friendly, smiling and helping. The food was tasty and delicious..."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "Quick boarding, good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food is below average. Very salty tofu salad, and they keep giving the same food in every leg."
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Pros: "Check-in counter and gate staff were really accommodating and professional."
Cons: "Cabin crew lacked training. They skipped rows, didn’t apologize, forgot to bring things when requested and had to be reminded again & lacked common courtesy. One guy barely opened his mouth and talked by pointing fingers. So rude! The food portion size is an absolute joke! Never have I seen such a skinny sized meal. It was insane. I’m a lean guy and even I wasn’t full! The quality of the food in the second service was awful. My rice wasn’t cooked all the way & the bread was clearly stale."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
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."
Pros: "On time, good crew, easy connection."
Cons: "Hard and tight seats for such long night flight."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Need to provide more variety for vegetarian food. Cannot serve the same food for every meal on a long haul flight. Provide more entertainment options, more episodes of sitcoms, more movie options, more language options."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "The seat in front of me was occupied by an adult who kept bouncing and reclining seats. The crew did not respond to call lights. No Wi-Fi on such a long flight."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Pros: "Alinda, the stewardess."
Cons: "Too long journey."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Staff were rude, careless. I do think I have paid less to purchase of ticket - why will I not get good service. If you want to treat people differently for their skin color and country of origin then charge less price for the ticket !!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"

All good .

Pros: "The seat was average for the 4 hour flight. The long trip from LAX to Seoul was much more comfortable . Seats were wider and more comfortable . Food was better also !"
Pros: "Amazingly kind and helpful crew. Great food."
Pros: "Food had great options, Crew was very friendly and efficient, toilets were kept clean, organized and stocked the whole trip - much better overall compared to my trip going to HK."

Pros: "Great services. Seat was good."
Cons: "The queue to board could be better."
Pros: "Great services. Seats are good."
Cons: "The queue to board was a little trying."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rude flight attendant! No manners! Absolutely disgusting"
Cons: "Food could be better."
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable"
Pros: "They are accommodating and respectful"
Cons: "Fair enough"
Pros: "After took off 5-6hours later very bad smalls comes from the bathroom."
Pros: "on-plane flight operation is very good"
Cons: "back-office support is very poor. for example they sent me an email before the departure date in Korean only."
Cons: "No vegetarian food I’d you didn’t pre-order 24 hours in advance. I couldn’t check in online so preorder not an option. Boarding started late on both flights"
Pros: "The food was great and the crew was very helpful. For my first international flight things couldn't have went smoother"
Cons: "I had a middle seat would have looked the window and a little more leg room. But I am taller then average."
Pros: "The crew was very polite"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "On times"
Pros: "One of the better business class rides I’ve had. Excellent, attentive service, smart layout, all the right small touches"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No enough fruit to eat."
Pros: "The service crew was outstanding!"
Pros: "Services"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Nice staff. Good movies. Liked having slippers and toothbrushes/toothpaste."
Pros: "There’s no entertainment at bulk head."
Pros: "The exceptional service combined with the great food and cleanliness of the cabin was great."
Pros: "Great service, good room in economy."
Pros: "Service was very good, spoke English and the inflight entertainment was very good"
Pros: "Newest Airline A380 Friendly, kindly crew"
Pros: "Excellent service from ground to in-,flight."
Cons: "My check-in luggage was broken. Filed a complaint upon landing and really hoping that Asian could attend to my concern."
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."
Cons: "Nothing."
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.

Pros: "Muy confortable, la amabilidad de los tripulantes"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not missing my connecting flight. Being flown to the correct airport. Not having my luggage go missing."
Cons: "The seat bottom was very uncomfortable and made my bum sore the rest of the day."

Pros: "Always like flying Swiss business class. Great service, good food and a great lie flat bed"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "they cancelled letting me fly"
Cons: "Too hot. Too late. Staff could have been more accommodating. Online checkin was impossible."
Pros: "787 is an excellent plane and I could sleep a little"
Cons: "I was boarding at gate C4. Doesn't anyone get it ! Using the word "bomb" in airports is a big no-no however C4 is OK? Even a little old lady knows what C4 stands for."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, more or less."
Cons: "packed in like anchovies in a tin."
Pros: "on time, quiet, nice screen, fast luggage delivery"
Cons: "no foot step available at the seat, uncomfortable for small people who’s heels can’t reach the floor"
Pros: "Excellent crew and service"
Pros: "The crew was nice, they served small sandwiches that were tasty, and the entertainment was average with only magazines, but it was a only 1 1/2 flight."
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"
