Airline reviews

Pros: "One of several preferred airlines when flying to Asia. Really enjoy their service, and it's wonderful to wake up to many beauties in view!"

Pros: "The service was excellent"

Cons: "In flight food service by cabin crew was spotty, sometimes they gave you coffee with dinner , sometime not, they are very forgetful. Please improve on this issue."

Cons: "No complain . It’s singapore airlines"

Pros: "Yes and yes"
Cons: "Not sure because I have never had a better experience."

Cons: "Entertainment including games such as backgammon, black Jack, and poker are not available although they are on every other airline I used with high quality game programs that are clos to live games"

Pros: "Service was excellent!"

Pros: "Great seats and efficient service all round."

Pros: "Great crew and cabin!"
Cons: "Meals were just ok"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The service is exceptional!"

Pros: "(Previous PE comparisons: Turkish AL, Air NZ, SAS) Ease of check-in, on-time dep/arr, crew attention and responsiveness, seating within the range to be expected of this class."
Cons: "Plane condition: Cosmetic plastic panel below monitor and seat back pocket on Seat 31E fell off when foot rest was lowered; had previously been secured by adhesive tape. Panel removed by crew. In-flight entertainment system: Persistent intermittent loss of sound while listening to movie or TV program. Food: Tried to use "Book the Cook" feature touted by Singapore's website. Was unable to get on site for that purpose. The last try a message appeared (late September) that site was being "rebuilt." On the flight, there was no menu of choices; we were offered 3 vaguely worded choices which boiled down to beef, chicken or vegetables. Those appeared in not particularly appetizing forms and combinations--P.S., we like east and southeast Asian cooking and had just spent 3 weeks in Japan. Failure to provide information about possible delays due to WRG deplaning location at LAX: Although we are frequent fliers to and from LAX, we'd never heard of the WRG. It would have been helpful if the crew had informed us upon arrival that there could possibly be a wait on the plane as buses were used to transport us approximately 1/2 mile to TBIT. Generally: We chose Singapore because of its reputation for excellence. Belying the name of the class, both Turkish AL and Air NZ treated Premium Economy passengers as "junior" business class. Singapore treated us as coach with a roomier cabin and seating pitch."

Pros: "Five Star Singapore Service on board the aircraft."

Pros: "The lunch and dinner menu was excellent"
Cons: "more bathrooms."

Cons: "First experience with Singapore where the crew made a negative impression. As soon as the plane pulled away from the terminal, crew members seemed rushed and frantic, literally running back and forth from Economy Premium to the galley gathering items. Approximately every 7-10 minutes, crew members would be running back and forth next to my seat with heavy foot steps, which would wake me up. I also noticed that certain crew members were shouting at passengers to get their attention instead of lowering themselves to be heard. One flight attendant almost spilled orange juice on me because she turned around too fast trying to serve drinks. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed, or if it was the influence of a certain crew boss, but something was definitely wrong."

Cons: "Cabin temperature was really hot."

Pros: "All the crews were friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Hindi movies with subtitles..."

Pros: "Christmas decorations, service, attitude of staff"

Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "new aircraft, 2 x usb charging ports, 50+ movies, very quiet aircraft."

Pros: "I ordered a Indian vegeterian meal. It was very good. I feel bad about all the playin cups, and garbage that gets wasted. Please recycle everything."
Cons: "The plane was very cold. A lot of movies were offered but I couldn't find anything I wanted to watch."

Pros: "ending meal was very late like an hour or less before landing"
Cons: "racial discrimination by the flight attendants thinking that I didn't know Japanese language even though I was white. I could see it happening."

Pros: "I traveled Premium Economy. It was well worth the extra cost over regular Economy. The food was great, the crew was great, the flight was very comfortable."

Pros: "The food is good. The service is excellent, always smiling and attentive."
Cons: "Not enough quantity of each type of food. I did not get the cold noodle I want and end up eating sandwiches."

Cons: "Need to be able to upgrade with Krisflyer Miles"

Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "My daughter had the vegetarian oriental - and it was basically a ball of slim. My son had the lactose free meal and it was broccoli and potatoes. We switched our return flight meals to the regular in-flight meal. It was better, but not great."

Pros: "I always felt attended to, great customer service, clean and best bang for your buck"

Cons: "good"

Pros: "The air stewardesses took their time to get back to me about a question I posed to them. It took 2 stewardesses and 3 efforts."

Pros: "Attention to detail, good leg room, entertainment options and a brand new plane"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The attendants were helpful, smiling and friendly. The entire time We flew with an 18 month old and they came looking for us before he flight to help us carry our stuff on board. They gave her a toy, asked for her name, and checked on us often. They also gave my husband and I an option for early food service so that one of us could help our daughter eat. The movie selection was great. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. And we arrive half an hour early both directions!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "On my trip to Japan, the staff was incredibly rude. Horrible commendations. The controls didn't work. And the desert had mold in it."

Pros: "Overall very good."
Cons: "Weren't informed of status of connecting flight while in flight. Learnt that the connecting flight was held back on arrival in terminal."

Pros: "Attention to customer service and needs"
Cons: "Couldn't use my own headphones to watch movies"

Pros: "Great entertainment, good service, clean plane."
Cons: "The lasagna was pretty dry and meh."

Pros: "Check in and boarding were flawless. The flight left about one hour late. The seats in coach are getting smaller and smaller. I got an aisle seat to have a little extra room (I'm 6'1") only to get hit big time by the food cart (they did apologize). The food was plentiful, but mediocre at best. The flight attendants were working hard, but we're abrupt and tired. Overall, I have three stars, when in the past, flying SA was always a five star experience. It got me back home though. :)"

Pros: "What did I like??? Um, EVERYTHING! First off I got a great price under $850 round trip to NRT from LAX was a steal! They let you check two large suit cases plus a carry on and a personal item. That all FREE!!! I travel pretty light but it was great to know they don't Nickle and dime you for bags or anything else for that matter. Staff looks amazing and treats you first class even when your in economy. They are so polite and really genuinely want to give you a above and beyond experience. And they over achieve at it! They meals are great and very satisfying. The planes are big and roomy even in economy seats. On our return flight we had a brand new plane which had a sleek touch screen monitor and controller. There mad tons of media available (articles, language games, games, movies, tv shows and more) with USB ports to charge devices on each seat. Plus 10inch personal monitors. Earbuds were included free of charge, aswell as socks toothbrush and tooth paste. They have is two big meals on our direct flight (awesome that they have direct flights). Plus, they offered free snacks too and gave us a full can of soda vs. a small cup. They come through several times offering coffee, tea, water and snacks. All free of charge. This was my first time flying Singapore Airlines and I loved it!!! I wish Everyone was this amazing! Norwegian Airlines was the opposite as far as charging for everything! Had to pay each stop for any luggage ($100 per checked bag). No meals free or charge. They wanted money for everything! And yea a skimpy sandwich was $9.00 :(."

Pros: "Great customer service, food was fine, seats were comfy in economy too. Definitely would fly again and recommend to everyone!"

Pros: "The graciousness of sraff, entertainment options, cleanliness of the aircraft. Always willing to make adjustments to accommodate."
Cons: "Its unfortunate that your staff sometimes do not get treated with the respect they deserve from a guest"

Pros: "Flight crew we're attentive and anticipated issues. The flight was smooth and the lavatories were clean and stocked. Love the hot towels at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Not much to be honest. I suppose if I could say anything it would the seats in economy are a bit cramped, but that's to be expected."

Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "We were supposed to fly back to Los Angeles from Tokyo on Wednesday, August 24th. We got to Tokyo Narita a little later than planned due to the Narita Express train being delayed. I had received emails that our flight had changed gates, and was then delayed, but when my sister and I went to check into our flight, we were told we were unable to board because it was too late. I thought it was absurd because the flight had not even started boarding, and I had gotten an email saying it was delayed. We tried to reason with them, but they would not let us on the flight. It was imperative that we got back to Los Angeles on Wednesday, but all our plans were ruined due to them bumping us off the flight. My sister had a connecting flight to Boston, which she then had to reschedule and was charged for. We were stuck another night in Tokyo, where we had to spend money on a hotel. The Singapore Airlines attendants eventually informed us that we could get on a flight the next day. This delayed us by 24 hours, which was highly inconvenient. It was also especially unnecessary since due to the flight being delayed, we would have absolutely been able to make it. I do not appreciate being bumped off of a flight due to airlines wanting to make more money, especially being stuck overseas. Its not like it was a domestic flight where we could just hop on another one in the next few hours, this totally derailed all of our plans. I do not appreciate the inflexibility of the Singapore Airlines agents, and this is not an experience that makes me want to recommend flying with Singapore Airlines. I appreciate that they did not charge us, however it was a major inconvenience that could have simply been avoided by better customer service and understanding."

Pros: "The food. The nice crew members. The comfortability and service. The tech and entertainment available."

Pros: "I like that I could check in 2 suitcase and able to choose my sitting when it's available."

Pros: "Crew and staff were great and accommodating."

Pros: "The crew was amazing!!"

Cons: "This trip was not quite as excellent as my flights on Singapore Airlines usually are; however, I cannot say for sure there was much that airline staff could have done to change this. A great deal of turbulence earlier in the flight made it difficult to enjoy the food. Also, there was a sewage-like smell that wafted through the air periodically - this could have been a child in the surrounding seats, though. Both of these issues seem difficult for the airline staff to address, however, unless the smell actually came from a problem with the ventilation system. The staff was exceptionally helpful and good-natured, though, which made the biggest difference. Thank you so much."

Pros: "every thing was ex best flight I have ever went on. I would rec your services to anyone."

Pros: "I loved the entertainment, the kind staff, and the extras they gave out to try to make us as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "My boyfriend is very tall, 6'6. On the flights to and from, even though he was on he aisle side seat, it was very difficult for him to have enough room for his legs, thus making my space that much less. In the future, I think we would benefit from booking either the seat behind us for him that had more leg room, or the seats in front of us that were the first seats of all rows."

Pros: "No baggage charge for surfboards"

Pros: "Very pleasant, staff was always smiling and eager to help."

Cons: "That fee for overweight was excessive"

Pros: "Q-suits. Very comfortable and private. Great upgrade to the 777. WiFi now available for very reasonable price"
Cons: "Bus transfer to Termial 5 is VERY poorly organized and takes over an hour. This makes it harder to get to Terminal 5 even if you don't have to clear security again. Seats had a bar under the padding at about the position of my hips. Uncomfortable to sleep for several hours"

Pros: "Jain meal was quite uninteresting Flight was too packed Cabin air stale and dry"

Cons: "I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance."

Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"

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: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"

Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"

Pros: "The food was good. The legroom was enjoyable."
Cons: "I checked two bags and had them marked 'fragile', as I had valuables in there that I packed securely. When I retrieved the bags on the carousel, the fragile sticker was mangled, and both items from both bags were broken. Pieces of art I can not replace. Also, it took over 30 minutes upon multiple requests for the attendant to acknowledge my need for assistance."

Pros: "Business Class is wonderful"

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."

Cons: "The trays of water could come around more frequently"

Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."

Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."

Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."

Pros: "Aircraft was much better than the flight from US, food was great. The only thing I wished for was more movies."

For two hours I pursued different officials in Dubai until they organized a voucher for overnight acc"

Cons: "Me"

Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
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..."

Cons: "Everything about the flight was great with the exception that the WiFi was pretty terrible and didnt work the final few hours of the flight. I raise the issue because customers shouldn’t pay $15 for it if it doesn’t work."

Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"

This was a "meh" mediocre experience!"

Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"

Now I have to wait over 24h before I can get my bag."

Pros: "As expected"

Pros: "My complete stars goes to the crew members. The best in the airline service. Next is the food, amazingly good."

Cons: "the entertanement not much option. and the food for the last meal no taste and not enough pasta sauce no salt."

Cons: "4 hour delay"

Pros: "The food was great and the crew were all very polite and friendly."

Pros: "Check in was quick and the personnel were extremely friendly! The flight staff was extremely friendly as well. Always smiling and did not fail to please once. I will definitely fly with AsianaAirlines again."

Pros: "The layover in Souel Korea was excellent. The Asiana wing has so much to offer the traveler. The shower was an awesome touch."
Cons: "The size of the seats. Not much room for someone 6'2 225lbs"

Pros: "My seat reclined more than usual"
Cons: "Their website that said that we could pay to use their lounge but when got to the lounge , I couldn't and had a 10 hr layover when I expected to be able to use it"

Cons: "The personal entertainment units had a USB charging outlet. That should be the standard in a smartphone world"

Cons: "nothing special. delayed."

Pros: "Generally uneventful experience. Nothing bad happen. We had individual screen entertainment in economy. The bathrooms are nice."

Pros: "We noticed we were seated together just before and they accommodated us at check-in and got us seats together. The food was good. They gave us nice little amenities (ear plugs, slippers, eye cover) and the food was good."

Cons: "Second meal was marginal"

Cons: "The flight was delayed too much, by the time I reached Seoul all the restaurants were closed and I couldn't get anything to eat until 6 am. I specifically booked an early flight to avoid this."

Pros: "The food selection is good and the service is tiptop. Highly recommend"

Pros: "The crew was professional, boarding was smooth, and service overall was great. Its why i continue to fly with this airline"
Cons: "Im sure it has nothing to do with the flight crew but i would love for my flights to actually arrive on time (+/- 10 mins) this 30-45 min delay on the runway is getting old (normally leaving from NRT)"

Pros: "My expectations of the flight were met or exceeded. I really enjoyed the food as well."
Cons: "There were no problems with the flight."

Cons: "No good Korean movies to watch."

Pros: "The service was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like about the airline"

Pros: "Entertainment was good, legroom was good, staff was very friendly both at the check in and on the plane"
Cons: "I wasn't able to check in online, kiosk didn't work for me, and had to wait in several long lines before I finally got my ticket in hand. The help was lost among the crowd and it was unclear where they were and how they could be flagged down."

Pros: "I got randomly upgraded. That was my first time flying business. It was pretty lovely. Lots of room, highly attentive staff that calls you by name."
Cons: "I guess the buttons that controlled the seat were confusing but I can live with that."

Pros: "Good food, polite crew, efficient and flexible with baggage."
Cons: "All of our 4 Asiana flights left late and arrived late, making us miss one connection on the way to Japan. We luckily allowed a lot of extra time going home because our flight was more than an hour late again."

Pros: "For the duration of 5.5hours, 1 main meal and 1 snack were served. Prompt drinks and meal service"
Cons: "No personal inflight entertainment. Only a few screens from the ceiling, with poor viewing angles."

Pros: "All the usual good things with Asiana -- flight attendants, politeness, efficiency in the cabin, good food."
Cons: "Upon arrival back in Seoul, the bridge would not work properly. We had to wait on the airplane for 45 minutes, causing all of us to miss the last buses from the airport to our neighborhoods. What is usually a 12,000 KRW bus ride turned into a 130,000 taxi ride. (The jimjilbang downstairs was full.) If they had brought out stairs and buses immediately, instead of waiting so long, we might have made it to the buses."

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: "Asiana staff are not trained in medical issues such as what to do when a passenger complains they are feeling weak from low blood sugar/hypoglycemia conditions. It is common for people with low blood sugar to have blood sugar drops while flying. The condition is dangerous if not handled properly but can be remedied very easily by simply increasing a passenger's intake of protein (such as chicken or beef) and carbohydrates, such as rice (but not white bread or deserts, as those cause spikes and drops in blood sugar). Basically, you only need an extra meal. I told a crew member about my condition and said I simply needed a second meal. She gave me a problem about it and at first refused. She understood the English words low blood sugar, but she was obviously not trained in that common issue. I was ready to pass out due to a drop in blood sugar and only when I threatened to file a lawsuit in a U.S. court against Asiana (as I anticipated passing out) did she react. Within a few seconds after I mentioned a potential lawsuit, she got me a second meal of chicken and rice. I ate it and the protein and carbs stabilized my blood sugar for the rest of the flight. It's a problem easily remedied but I had to argue with the flight attendant to grant my very simple but very necessary request. Asiana needs to comply with the norms of global carriers and train its staff to understand such comment conditions as low blood sugar. U.S. and European carrier understand this condition very well, and their crews are trained in how to handle it by simply giving extra food. Asiana needs to comply with modern, global norms."
Cons: "If you have low blood sugar dont take Asiana. Crew not trained in this simple medical issue."

Pros: "On time. No issue with baggage. Food provided even though it was only 2 hrs flight and not exactly meal time. The foot rest was helpful."
Cons: "Too long line for baggage check-in after having done self check in."

Pros: "Flight quality was good"
Cons: "The return flight had delays."

Cons: "When I missed a flight due to a missed connection this airline refused to rebook my flight directly. I had to go through just flying.com who were just as incompetent. I will never use KAYAK, justfly, nor Asiana airlines ever again. Poor customer service."

Pros: "I particularly liked the seamlessness of the experience - from the downtown checkin and getting a boarding pass at Seoul station, taking the AREX, the efficiency and competence of the front line personnel, etc. I will recommend Asiana and I would consider taking them long distance except that I am a goldcard frequent flier with American/British/Cathay for many years now. Chicago talks about seamlessness in its airport experience but its train-to-the-plane is the chronic weak link."
Cons: "Nothing - I'd tell you if there was. I didn't bother with entertainment for a two-hour flight and I was already well into a really eloquent novel (I'll Be Right There) by Kyung-Sook Shin; check it out"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and the food for economy was good."
Cons: "13 hour from Seoul to NYC and the crew never once went into and took care of any of the four bathrooms in the lower cabin in economy class. On the flight two weeks before from JFK - they did a great job on the bathrooms.On both flights there was no need for the constant interruptions telling us to put the seat belts on. Just turn on the light no need to make an announcements in two languages."

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Flight crew was so kind, food was tasty"
Cons: "Headphones/headphone jack didnt work well and was too short to see the screens- they dont tip down; was difficult to hear announcements- the electronic speaker wasnt loud/clear enough"

Cons: "The cabin smelled very bad. Like sweaty clothes. Air quality not good. Also, too cold at times."

Pros: "There was no water bottle provided during about 5 hours flight after the dinner service. Although the fly attendants are always ready to help, I hope the Asiana Airlines would cater more to customers' needs and think more considerably."

Pros: "no TV in the seats"

Pros: "The crew was great"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seat confort"

Pros: "They had many snacks and meals. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "The dinner taste was not great. Seating is very uncomfortable and small. Really limited on space if seat is reclined in front of you."

Pros: "Punctual modern aircraft."
Cons: "The onky bad thing was luggage collection. Belt 6 tucked away. The luggage was so quick coming off that there was no-one to collect it . The belt was soon full and no.more luggage could enter the belt until the luggage on the belt was claimed"

Cons: "To my shock, my boarding pass while scanning to enter the aircraft was rejected with wild flashing red lights saying my trip was cancelled. Someone else was given my emergency row seat, booked and confirmed 24 hours ahead. It was a full flight but I got a middle seat and continued my long journey home from Kenya"

Pros: "The loveliest crew possible and the easiest and most efficient connection logistics imaginable! Full praise for Swiss Air"

Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Bag check process"

Pros: "Swiss Lounge, food excellent."
Cons: "everything was very good"

Pros: "Hard working on board crew"
Cons: "check in procedure in Berlin: That airport is different. You drive right to the gate from which you board the plane. I showed up early and was told that I had to take by suitcase to another location if I wanted to check in 3 hours early. After lugging the suitcase a quarter of a mile, I was told that they don't do that and I had to return to the designated gate at the appropriate time."

Pros: "The crew was superlative, and after I was stuck for an hour at passport control I found the captain waiting with my dog(in his crate) to make sure of his well being. He said he made sure he kept the climate control at 20c the whole time on the plane. You hear all these animal horror stories but this went above and beyond."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "That it wasn’t a flight to denver"

Cons: "Connecting flight cancelation, didn’t get to go."

Pros: "Ground Staff (your frontline) were welcoming The seats are most comfortable, the cabin immaculately clean, the Staff polite, helpful and efficient. The flight was smooth including takeoff and Landing Thank You All"
Cons: "Have no complaints."

Pros: "service, food and chocolate"

Cons: "Nasty passport control person at gate check in"

Cons: "It was so hot in the plane and there were no air vents to keep air circulating."

Pros: "Punctuality, onboard service and the food served were all very good. Their app is very practical, no need to go to the counter except for dispatch of luggage."

Pros: "Absolutely amazing transatlantic flight with Swiss as always"

Pros: "Amount of times drinks, water, was served."
Cons: "The person in front of me reclined seat the whole trip. Very, very uncomfortable for me."

Cons: "I wasn't able to select seat before boarding"

Pros: "Crew was good. Very polite. The plane was old. No place to charge your phone. The in flight screen required the use of a remote which was inconvenient when having to wake up my neighbor to pull it out of the armrest. Food wasn’t great. Skipped the last meal service. It was like flying 20 years ago. Not bad, but not as good as it could be nowadays."

Pros: "The fights themselves were nice, the crew was pleasant and the dinner itself was a very nice surprise"
Cons: "Wow what a cramped space- the minute the person leaned their seat back I had no room and I'm a fairly small pElson. The seat in front of me was almost literally in my lap I couldn't open my tray on their seat back unless they sat up to eat"

Pros: "BEST FLIGHT OF MY LIFE"
Cons: "NOTHING"

Cons: "No Wi-Fi on board."

Cons: "entertainment machine in my seat did not worked"

Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "No USB. Entertainment was so-so."

Pros: "Your crew is amazing."

Pros: "We were worried based on negative reviews on SWISS we had read prior to our trip, but they were WONDERFUL!! We flew coach from MIA to CRETE, two stops and 13+ hours of flying. The seats were as roomy as coach gets, but comfortable, reclining further than Delta or AA in my opinion. The food, drinks and snacks never stopped and were tasty!! Including a delicious Swiss chocolate a the end of your flight! They were so attentive! The attendants were all kind and polite. In fact, we had someone sit in front of us on our flight home who culturally didn't bath/wear deodorant and VERY malodorous and we asked the flight attendant if we could move. As soon as everyone boarded and she found two open seats for us, she moved us right before take off and we had a wonderful, great-smelling 10.5 hour flight!! LOL"
Cons: "There seems to only be 4 (plenty) bathrooms right in the center of the coach area of the plane, but with the flight attendants constantly serving drinks and food, you really had to time it so you could get to the bathrooms when they weren't in the aisles. Trust me though, this is hardly a negative and I will happily fly SWISS over and over!!!"

Pros: "Great flight, great crew. Seats were very comfortable. much space for legs and comfortable for sleep."

Pros: "zurich a great airport."
Cons: "cheese roll"

Cons: "Sound for on-screen entertainment not working. It was static-y all the time and completely cut out the rest of the time. I made various attempts to solve the problem, switching headphones, switching to my own headphones (which can't really be done because they have a two-prong jack and personal headphones are always one). I tried watching different movies, programs, music...it wasn't the material I was watching that was the problem. I asked the flight attendant to reset my console. That didn't work either. I just ended up reading my book the entire 9 hour trip."

Pros: "Business Class price was 50% lower by buying the ticket on El Al site rather than buying direct from Swiss Airlines."

Cons: "Should be clear whether meals contain nuts."

Pros: "Only the crew was good"
Cons: "Ridiculous entertainment system - was impossible to watch a movie."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Terrible flight had to delay few times , we had to wait inside in the plane for more than 2 hours , they had me to check im my carry on in geneva layover even i had a personla stuff inside and with no lock , rude crew i never even fly with suiss i had toncome back with lugthansa because they had to delay the flight again"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "I loved everything"

Pros: "Bad inedible food and no leg room, and I am small."

Pros: "good entertainment and many options on the tv"
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Crew was excellent, and the food was both ample and appetizing."
Cons: "The boarding process is a little chaotic for the economy cabin since there is no distinctions by zone or seat row. The result is a bit of a surge when they first announce the boarding of the cabin."

Pros: "There was no food"
Cons: "Cramped seating"

Cons: "Old plane, hard uncomfortable seats, no wifi, rigid flight attendants, awful food, middle seat (after paying for premium seating) with two enormous guys on either side, fixed armrest, AC dripped on me most of the flight and was told nothing could be done, interminable."

Pros: "Comfortable business class"
Cons: "Food was not too great"

Cons: "I became infected with a head cold in the airplane and after I arrived at my destination I got sick. The person next to me was well, so was I. Is this a recurring problem? What can be done? Maintaining a cleaner air conditioning system?"

Pros: "First time flying with swiss air, loved everything about this airline!!"
Cons: "Professionalism, outstanding service, no problems, no stress, no issues, flawless!!!!!"

Pros: "Comfortable flight, quick boarding, great crew, good pilots."
Cons: "My laggadge was left behind in Zurich (with my medication). Given age of electronics how hard it to make sure that everything is loaded? Not hard at all. They located Laggage at 12:30, but took them 7 hour to ship to Barcelona, so it arrived at 7:30 pm to Barcelona airoport. And they only delivered next day. Not cool. Advice: read laggage tags to reading device during loading and compare with transit customers flight database."

Pros: "Almost everything was good. Crew was friendly and courteous."

Cons: "seats not too comfortable, if seated right next to the toilet I should pay a lower fare!"

Pros: "Although it was a quick flight they bought around snacks and drinks!"
Cons: "More space would be nice but I guess you can't ask for too much on flights these days."

Pros: "Great airplane stuf and food"

Cons: "Flight was delayed and I missed my connection in Zurich... Instead Zurich-Belgrade WITH SWISS AIR i was rebooked to Zurich-Munich LUFTHANSA then Munich-Vienna LUFTHANSA and then Vienna-Belgrade AUSTRIAN... Lufthansa is not on my list and I was forse to fly with company I don't like... So disappointed by SwissAir..."
