Pros: "Very courteous attendants."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, food was ok."
Pros: "On time flight"

Cons: "I didn't like the meal much and the lighting was too bright most of the time."
Pros: "The woman who checked in my baggage was very helpful and patient. I had to re-arrange some weight and she assisted me in maximizing weight and minimizing cost. The flight attendants we very kind in trying to assist me in finding appropriate food. The flight was very comfortable and the flight attendants were wonderful all-around."
Cons: "Boarding of the flight was delayed which impacted our arrival time in Zurich. I had a connecting flight- but so did at least 10 other Swiss flights at that time. The queues for customs were incredibly long and the only reason I made my flight was because I ran through the airport. I also had a challenging time with food. I am celiac and often cannot eat the standard fare on planes. I called in advance of my flight to notify someone of my allergy - and they told me the only way I could ensure such a meal was by purchasing a meal that cost $30. I was not willing to pay such a hefty surcharge for food because I had already payed a bit extra than budgeted because my partner had recommended the excellent service of Swiss. I have traveled on several airlines for intercontinental flights between Boston and Europe - and have always had my allergy accommodated at no extra cost. Once on the flight - I was offered an orange and banana for dinner and a small yoghurt for breakfast. I will be flying Swiss again in December and I sincerely hope they will be better equipped to provide for my dietary requirements."
Pros: "Swiss' Zurich Airport Business lounge is the most comfortable I've experienced. The flight attendants were professional, courteous and very helpful. A very enjoyable flight experience in business class."
Pros: "Staff & service were super nice & friendly. In this day & age that airline travel is getting really hectic, it was a breath of fresh air to see friendly & dedicated staff who clearly enjoy what they are doing."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Cons: "Very tight seating in economy for a transcontinental flight"
Pros: "Food and service were good"
Cons: "Seats were terrible - way too small, too tight. No room for underseat placement of a backpack and feet. Sardine packing of economy passengers!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "The tram ride to the plane"
Pros: "Crew, food...."
Cons: "As I said before..."
Pros: "The food was good and I enjoyed the Swiss chocolates."
Cons: "The Seats were real cramped and the entertainment system was outdated"
Pros: "The friendly and attentive crew helped me from boarding to disembarking. Swiss' service in general is outstanding. I highly recommend them for flights to Europe."
Cons: "Cons: They never reduced their fares & surcharges after fuel prices came down this spring; and to add insult to injury, they started charging a $ 29.- seat reservation fee. Loyal customers should not have to pay extra fees! Peter (86)"
Pros: "Excellent boating procedure Friendly crew good service"
Cons: "Seats smaller, especially well the seat be afore head rest is pushed back!"
Pros: "The flights were Just as schedule, the arrival time was even earlier than planned. The crew is always available and tries to make the flight as comfortable as it can be. The food is brilliant in comparison to other airlines. To sum up, always a good choice. * this is my 8th flight with Swiss."
Pros: "The seats have been much better"
Cons: "The entertainment system is a little old (plugs are not universal), you had to use their (cheap) headsets."
Cons: "We have bought our seats, but in the airport it was found that our seats were assigned to somebody else and nothing could be done to give them back to us"
Cons: "Small seats ,and temperature too hot"
Cons: "Good overall"
Cons: "I tried to get on an earlier flight to travel with my husband and every person claimed they couldn't help me. I called the airline who said there were plenty of seats on the flight, but they told me I needed someone onsite to help me make the change. Not great customer service."
Pros: "Everything. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Everything was very good."
Pros: "Great cabin crew, decent food in coach, great entertainment system with many movie choices."
Cons: "Swissair charges extra to reserve a standard, not premium seat in coach. The practice should be disclosed at the time the ticket is purchased, to make comparison shopping easier. Otherwise, it constitutes a hidden fee, and that's what the customer remembers."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I got to Los Angeles safely"
Cons: "The bathrooms were tiny, seemed to be in a bad shape and one of them was straight disgusting. The cabin was crowded and there was not much room to stretch. There seemed to be something wrong with the main dish (special order) and I started to feel ill soon after eating from it. It took a few days to get better. The headset didn't work for most of the trip, even after several attempts by the flight attendant to re-set it."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and made a bad situation as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 3 hours for a issue with the pilot's chair. The movies reset in the middle of the showing."
Pros: "The skillful pilot landed so perfectly I thought we were still in the air. Perfection!!!"
Cons: "The flight was full and thanks to a rather oblivious person at check in everyone had a ton of luggage. As a result, the rearranging of all belongings delayed us significantly. We landed when I was supposed to be on my connecting flight. Thankfully the other aircraft waited."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "too crowded"
Pros: "Definitely pick comfort plus on this flight if you can. You can walk around a lot more on this flight compared to other flights. Food was really good! Recommend the overnight flights...."
Cons: "More leg room would have been nice..."
Cons: "Wouldn’t change a thing! I don’t always fly! But when I do!! I fly delta!!"
Pros: "My flight arrangements were not found I had to purchase new tickets and spend additional money for something I had already paid for I wasted all day and it was the worse experience ever."
Cons: "Refund my money back"
Pros: "Not one of my good experiences with Delta. Two hours delay in the flight"
Cons: "Information on the flight delay as communication was. at least very poor. Also A 220 was ok but First Class was so so"
Cons: "Food, at least for first class."
Cons: "Refueling took over an hour."
Pros: "There were a few hiccups with the overall flight process, but the crew was very friendly and informed everyone in a timely manner of the situation. There were also good snacks. Also, flexible baggage policy, which was great."
Cons: "The boarding situation is odd and less organized or structured than any of the other airlines I've flown with."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Pros: "Got to Houston on time"
Cons: "WiFi that I paid for on Delta didn't work, flight was delayed at take off due to waiting for restroom supplies; lead flight attendant had a major accent and was difficult to understand. She also stated to keep my mother's walker outside the plane when entering the plane"
Cons: "Late taking off. Let's leave on time"
Cons: "Wifi was not working"
Cons: "Seats could’ve been assigned ahead of time"
Cons: "Old plane, long delay, sketchy WiFi."
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth."

Pros: "Friendliness of flight attendants"
Cons: "I wasn't awake long enough to find fault"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The flight was incredibly uncomfortable. The Delta team in Houston was not very pleasant."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment, speed of flight"
Pros: "Got to London on-time (early, actually) and safely. The in flight meal was okay. The leg room in comfort plus was great, the mobile app was awesome, and the staff (check-in, gate, cabin and flight deck) were professional and friendly all around."
Cons: "The leg room was great, but as a broad-shouldered guy, the width of the seat was miserable. Unfortunately, the Delta 767 doesn't offer any upgrade for a wider seat beyond Delta One, and my employer won't spring for that. Too bad there isn't a premium economy option. Also, the entertainment unit in the seat next to mine malfunctioned, which you wouldn't think would impact me that much except that because it was "seeing" touches randomly throughout the flight, the screen would turn on, off, brighter, dimmer, play random stuff, and just generally be as annoying as possible to everyone nearby throughout an overnight flight."
Pros: "At the counter the staff is friendly, nice."
Cons: "There is no one to organize the lines to the self check in on the computers, basically a mess, nobody knows how many lines are there."
Pros: "Food and service was nice"
Cons: "Very long route to my final destination"
Pros: "Everything. Very nice accommodating ok"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and very helpful."
Cons: "Not sure who was in charge of loading the plane with food for purchase, but they forgot it all entirely. The crew was kind enough to give extra snacks. Kinda curious how you forgot to load a plane with food for purchase and how did the crew not notice in advance? I would think that is one of their checks of the cabin. Not mention who ever signed off saying they filled the plane with food for purchase lied. Very frustrating not only for the crew but for the passengers."
Pros: "Comfort Plus seating was good for the long flight, lots of choices for entertainment."
Cons: "Some crew members were rather cold in their manner, either disinterested or grumpy. Electric outlet didn't work. On screen entertainment touch screen was very difficult to use (unresponsive to touch)."
Pros: "They did take care of the situation in a timely manner and switched my flight were I made it in my time line . Switched to American from Atl. to Houston"
Cons: "Was informed the flight delay due to equipment ,"
Cons: "I couldn’t watch a movie and I couldn’t fall asleep because the the person in front of me had a light on."
Pros: "First class service and seats"
Cons: "Lost my bag... very frustrated. Nobody at the baggage claim would give us an answer, they said there might be more bags coming... Then they ran away. We finally wind up at the last bag office and they began the process... We still are waiting for our bag, 14 hours after reporting it missing."
Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."
Cons: "1 hour delay, no explanation, no weather problems, late for my meeting in Houston."
Pros: "The plane went where it was supposed to go."
Pros: "The gate agent and cabin crew handled passenger's misery with friendly grace and professionalism. Also, it was an old plane and so the seats, even in coach, were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane was around 45 minutes late in arriving at our Minneapolis gate. Flight was further delayed by something (unspecified) being "frozen." WORST part was that the temperature in the seating area at the gate was horribly cold. Departing passengers at a neighboring gate were bound for Fargo and sat with their parkas on and with parka hoods up. We Houston-bound had packed our coats & boots and were shivering. Then when we finally boarded the crew announced that the plane's water system was broken and so we would have no hot coffee or hot tea or hot anything. No water, also and obviously, in the restroom sink. But sani-wipes were provided in the sink basin."
Pros: "Quick flight, great landing and takeoff."
Cons: "Everything was great today."
Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."
Cons: "Couldn’t pick my seat"
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and borderline rude. I felt like when I asked for anything or was just up stretching my legs that I was bothering them. There was also quite bit of turbulence in the first two hours- I have traveled a lot and I felt like it took the pilots too long to find a smoother altitude."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats too close. Food lacks salads. Fruit salad tasteless--fruit not ripe--looks good, but no taste."
Pros: "Could not use the bathroom"
Pros: "The plane got me & my family safely to our destinations. Easy & fast check-in."
Cons: "Flight delays on both departing & return flights to Los Angeles. Delta didn't offer any compensation for the delays. Crew was not very friendly especially on my return flight. The flight attendant couldn't even give me a bag of peanuts."
Cons: "Delayed by an hour!"
Cons: "Late taking off, and then unable to get to gate on arrival"
Pros: "Everything else good."
Cons: "they charge 300$ extra for a 14 year old child and dont give any service for the payment, they say it is to bring the child on and off the plane even though he can travel alone and has done it many times with other air lines. drive the parents uo the wall, make them wait endless time, and then they comlaine that thay have no time tofor the child and leave him standing with out even letting him to seat with the other air lines a child of 12 can travel alone."
Pros: "Drinks were passed out twice while everyone was waiting due to flight delay. There was one flight attendant that was awesome. I had asked for coffee due to migraine. I was stuck in the last row, back of the plane & had seen other people with coffee. The flight attendant told me no, I would have to wait for 3 more hours for coffee at breakfast. A smiling face showed up within minutes & asked if I wanted coffee. She told me that when she hears someone else say "no" that she thinks it should always be "yes". She was the African American flight attendant (wish I would have got her name). She brought me coffee, offered tylenol & checked in on me again later."
Cons: "Food wasn't very good. Most of the service was fair at best, crew, no smiles, looked irritable. Our flight had been delayed about 4-5 hrs so passengers & staff grumpy. Poor selections on the movies. No charging stations in the seat. This plane was very noisy so I was really glad to have noise cancelling headphones. Very expensive to select seats as it was bought through a non-Delta site to get the desired connections."
Pros: "Many passengers did not have seat assignments and we also ran out of over head storage resulting in many additional bags to be checked at the gate(mine included) but the crew and staff at the desk inside laguardia work quickly and efficiently to get everyone boarded and we ended up landing 15 minutes early."
Cons: "Seating was extremely cramped and the in flight wifi quality was poor, couldn't even watch an hour long movie (on a 2+ hour flight) because of the amount of buffering."
Pros: "Every thing except food!"
Cons: "Not enough food provided by airline!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, great access to a variety refreshments, robust entertainment library."
Cons: "No suggestions."
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Pros: "The pilot and the crews were helpful about the transit. Pilot make up a lot of time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, had to run to my next connection flight."
Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Pros: "Good beverage service."
Cons: "Over an hour delayj for departure."
Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."
Pros: "I love the food"
Cons: "If only there was a way to be able to lie down and sleep - you would be pioneers in aviation"
Pros: "The crew were very nice, food was tasty, seat comfortable and the entertainment great as well. Will be flying KLM again soon :)"
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"
Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"
Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Cons: "Trouble checking in regarding a visa issue?.. no other trouble at the other airports.."
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Cons: "The flight advertised meals..a small pastry was served an hour into the flight. I asked when the meal would be and was told a few hours...which turned out to be breakfast..i wated all night for food that only came an hour before landing. Now hungrey and tierd.I.will not be flying klm ever again !!"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "Travel on Crostian Airlines did not pappen. KLM flight to Munich was cancelled and I was rescheduled on Air Setbia to Belgrade, the Split."
Cons: "That it didn’t happen."
Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."
Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."
Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
Pros: "Good multi media access and content"
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Pros: "good service"
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
Pros: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "We love the flight all the way"
Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."
Pros: "10 hour flight - I was well looked after, regular drinks, the food and snacks were good enough and tasty. The in flight entertainment was good - latest movies and worked a great variety of tv, books and movies. The airplane was modern and comfortable"
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. was not able to make connecting flight in Amsterdam. No flights from Amsterdam to final destination in the US. Lost one full day. Had to stay overnight. What a cluster mess. Will never fly with KLM airlines and would not recommend. Will spend a little extra money and fly on other airlines......very poor, disorganized, and horrendous flight experience. Buyer beware."
Pros: "The limited amount of people flying"
Cons: "Updated tv and movie selection"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Hardly saw a steward in business class the whole flight. Must be part of BA’s cost saving initiatives, but means you don’t get food on time, offered drinks or even a menu"
Cons: "The primume economy was out of date - compered to BA we flew from Telling Aviv to London"
Pros: "I loved the spacious business class cabins"
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"
Cons: "The people handling the boarding were rude and inefficient. Not a way to staty an 11 hour flight."
Pros: "Yeah Ok...average"
Cons: "More movie options"
Cons: "Flight cancelled and we will miss Christmas Eve Dinner"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "The flight was great and was on time. Down side, no entertainment at all."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"
Pros: "More legroom than other aircraft, plentiful IFE (in-flight entertainment), and a USB charging point in the seat back near the video screen. Decent food and wine, great crew."
Cons: "We departed the terminal for takeoff but a passenger had a medical emergency requiring a return to the gate and off-loading along with finding the passenger’s baggage down below. Not the airline’s fault, of course, but maybe passengers should carefully consider their health before embarking on an 11.5 hour flight from one continent to another."
Cons: "I was not able to make this flight due to many technical difficulties, waiting in lines at the airport for over 4 hours, and having British Airways automatically change my flight booking Gatwick (which is 45 minutes from where this second leg would have been!)."
Cons: "Seats were so tight and uncomfortable. This was an 8+ hour flight and it was so hard to rest."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "On time, attentive staff"
Pros: "Flight arrived 30 minutes early."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "I loved the new modern plane. It was a bit more comfortable and conveniently designed. Less like a cattle truck and more like a luxury bus."
Pros: "Especially the flight attendants took very good care of my infant. I'm very much impressed with their service."
Pros: "Crew great, Food great!"
Cons: "Flight has now been cancelled twice. Communication by BA has been lacking. Flight now scheduled to leave 48 hours later than scheduled.See above"
Pros: "Excellent flight. Staff very helpful and professional."
Pros: "Hostess was very nice, helpful and friendly. entertainment was ok and pilot was very informative on delays and info. I think the comic relief video is a keeper. People tend to watch just to see the characters and reactions"
Cons: "Seats were to close together, really squashed, no space for 2 arms on the arm rests and leg room is rubbish. Food is wasn't bad.. could do with more on the trays, seems there have been some budget cuts. Continental breakfast option would be really nice."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, the A380 is so much quieter than the usual 747 and really clean. We arrived on time."
Cons: "As a silver Avios member I've gotten used to the cabin crew calling me on my name when they come and talk to me. This time they spoke as little as possible and it was all incognito. They seemed to be more interested in various Facebook updates than working business class."
Cons: "Crew unable to control students passengers who are noisy, w/c made our travel uncomfortable"
Cons: "I paid for an exit seat and didn't get one and then I had the only seat with no entertainment for 11 hours overnight and no Joyce to move"
Pros: "Food was excellent"
Pros: "Food was excellent"
Pros: "The entertainment was about all that was good"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Seats were uncomfortable and very dirty Cabin crew was short staffed Food was the worst I've ever had on BA and they ran out of chicken before getting half the plane fed. Cabin crew that was there was rude to passengers to the point some just ignored the cabin crew. Only served drinks 3 times on a 9 hour flight I've flown BA multiple times and this was by far the worst flight I've ever had with BA. Very disappointed they have gone downhill so much"
Pros: "The updates"
Cons: "Paid extra for seats that I did not get"
Cons: "I will continue traveling with this airline .,"
Cons: "Older plane, terrible tv compared to other airlines. Food was mediocre"
Pros: "Courtesy, professionalism, cleanliness."
Pros: "We boarded almost 1hr early, took off on time and landed just before scheduled."
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Pros: "Great Crew, smooth operation. Efficient service."
Cons: "Plane was extremelly cold.Came back with bronchitis, missed day of work.Attendent claimed they do not have blankets, but at least came later one with one. Seat could have been broken was uncomfortabe sit on,"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and the crew was good. Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "If you want decent food in economy, you must pay for it. No outlets or USB outlets to charge devices even though most Boeing 777 for other airlines have them. No games, must be in World Travellers Plus. With four classes on a flight, economy or World Traveller just feels neglected. No wifi. Maybe this is just the service for LHR-IAH."
Pros: "Good choice of entertainment"
Cons: "It was difficult to get out of the seat when seat in front was reclined."
Cons: "They did not do much to help accommodate us sitting together on the long flight. Poor food. Poor service."
Cons: "Seating configuration was ridiculous as flight attendants constantly leaning across me with trays and their arms nearly hitting my face. Seat & bed functions didn't work. Privacy screen was a joke!"
Pros: "No complaints with anything, very average."
Cons: "Flight overbooked, but compensated for that."
Pros: "I'm sure there was something but nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Lack of assistance regarding my missing belongings. Incorrect information relating to landing card to be completed when arriving in London. Stretching over me to pass food etc to passenger sitting facing other direction, and literally millimetres from my face, without any politeness having to do it. Configuration gives no privacy as you look at the passenger next to you. Functions of chair did not work. Pillow was thinner Than a piece of paper. Crew showed no concern."
Cons: "Each rep we spoke to said they couldnt help us and to just open a support ticket online.. Kept telling us they dont have a customer service team who can help us and its only available online."
Pros: "I liked all of the entertainment options and the food was quite good for an airplane. I also liked that I had a free seat next to me for more room."
Cons: "There's never enough legroom and I always wish there was a way to remove the headrest since it sometimes really bothers my neck since there are only so many ways it can bend. For taller people, it sometimes makes your head bend forward when you need to rest it back further."
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late due to weather (not airline's fault) and technical problems (airline's fault), causing a missed connection in the London to Houston connection. BA gave excellent support in this difficulty but it was next day for a connection, changing plans for others at home and making it difficult at their end (hotel and pet boarding reservations). There were noisy babies the whole trip--not airline's fault but does make an uncomfortable and long trip even worse. The flight was full, so it's 10 hours in a sardine can--and they wonder why people hate flying now. Hate flying and only do it when necessary (longing for the good old days when flying was comfortable and fun)."
Cons: "The food make me literally sick. I had the chicken curry and soon and soon after had vomiting and diarrreha. On the way back there was massive amount of turbulence. They completely ran out of diet sofa and the flight crew was rude and abrasive."
Pros: "Seats were spacious, they greeted travelers with champagne, flight attendants were very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth"
Cons: "Allowed people to deplane while waiting. Sitting on a plane during a two + hour delay is the stupidest thing ever."
Cons: "The gate was occupied when we landed on schedule."
Pros: "All employees were awesome."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Power in the airplane to charge phones. A form of entertainment would have been nice"
Pros: "Crew was ok. The basics. No issues."
Cons: "WiFi and better entertainment"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and then stuck on runway for over an hour. No air at 3 am"
Pros: "Only thing that was good was tail wind."
Cons: "The plane was so small and tight. And they sat me next to 260lbs x football player in this tiny plane. Not really your fault but a plane that size is just too small esp when your neighbor is double your size."
Cons: "Overall terrible experience, flight attendant was extremely rude when i asked if they were offering sparkiling wine. Flight was delayed due to overbooking on american. Turbulence was horrible the entire flight. The in flight entertainment was unavailable for some reason."
Cons: "My original flight was delayed then we had to spend the night in Dallas."
Pros: "Crew members. After a long time I got to see some friendly cabin crew members."
Cons: "Boarding was little delayed. But that's alright."
Pros: "Once aboard, LATAM is actually quite impressive. The logistical part of the company is horrendous, but the service onboard is exemplar."
Cons: "LATAM changed my itinerary without my authorization and despite my clear verbal directions to NOT change it. The airline took directions from a corrupt official with the Colombian immigration office and cancelled my return flights. I was forced to purchase an additional ticket, travel on and separate flight from my wife and children. I then had to spend several hours waiting to resolve the case in person. The customer service at LATAM is a joke. If I'd received this treatment in the United States, I would have filed a lawsuit for their infringement on my rights and collaboration with the discriminatory practices of the Colombian immigration office in Bogota."
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "This was my final connection from a long flight, we did a line to check in and get our boarding passes, when we got to the gate I found out I didn’t have a seat number asigned but husband did, they gave me one there but of course it was not next to my husband, it was the last seat available at the end next to restroom. The smell coming out from the it was so disgusting even before th first person went in, they should do something to improve the cleaness in the restroom between flights. It would probably take them 30 more minutes to do so, and I would not mind waiting for it even if this was my final flight after 15+ hours."
Cons: "AA lost put my checked baggage onto a different flight during my layover in Philly to my final destination. After losing my baggage, it took them over 24 hours to return it to me, telling me that it would only be "another hour" till they would deliver it to my house. No airline is perfect, but I don't like being lied to about my baggage not being transferred properly to my final flight, nor do appreciate how they kept giving me vague estimates and round-a-bout answers about my checked bag which they lost in the first place. If I can help it, I will never fly with American Airlines again; they have lost my business!"
Cons: "The turbulence st the end made me puke."
Pros: "Being able to check flight progress while in the air."
Cons: "We did not appreciate the game of needing to pay for seat selection after having already paid for tickets. We were not provided with TSA-PRE despite providing our known traveler numbers in advance. Boarding selection protocol seemed opaque, complex, and geared towards inviting us to pay extra for priority boarding. Before boarding the plane, we were not able to find out whether any food would be served and the extent of what might be provided. After getting on board, we were offered the chance to buy food. The complementary food was a cookie and a few ounces of soda or juice. Movies were available, but not headphones for listening to them. Leg space under the seat in front of us was reduced to make room for life vests."
Pros: "It was a good flight"
Cons: "Delayed, old aircraft, no food, no entertainment"
Pros: "Not much, the flight attendants were fine"
Cons: "They boarded the plane for the ‘on-time departure’ scam, then proceeded to do maintenance for 30 minutes, then when you think your on your way we wait another 15 minutes for takeoff. We spent more time sitting still than we did in motion. Horrible."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and my luggage is coming in the later flight. I need some form of consolation for this pathetic service."
Pros: "Everything about the flight"
Cons: "I'm not a large man. I shouldn't need to fold my arms to keep from bumping into and intruding on my neighbors."
Pros: "Timely and comfortable flight!"
Cons: "No tv. Small aircraft."
Pros: "Flight was delayed. No food offered."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 minutes, with no explanation. Upon arrival, another airplane was in our gate, resulting in an additional 30 minute wait, buckled in my seat on the tarmac."
Pros: "It was a small plane so I didn't expect much. The attendants were a little disconnected for it being a three hour flight."
Pros: "Seats were better padded than that of the previous flight. There was sufficient leg room for a short flight. Seats actually allowed for passengers to adjust back of seats."
Cons: "Space is very limited between neighborning seats."
Cons: "When the flight was on time, we learned it was overbooked. Agents stated that if people would not willingly accept their offer to fly at a later time random people would be denied boarding. This was a stressful element as there was no other flight that could make me arrive on time. Plus, threatening to deny boarding to paying customers for airline related overbooking does not seem like a fair or good business practice. Then there were mechanical issue with the plane. After waiting over an hour for repairs they realized they needed a new air craft. This further delayed the flight. Not only was the flight extremely delayed at this pint but throughout the waiting time we were given very little information and were constantly told they couldn't give us an approximate time of departure. This was extremely rude and makes the experience of dealing with a delay even worse. I would suggest giving us more information about what is happening. Saying we don't know when the flight will leave is just unacceptable. To make matters even worse after we were finally boarded we had to wait an additional 40 minutes sitting inside the plane while they boarded refreshments! I know there are delays in flights but this same thing happened to my flight on my way to Paris and it caused me to miss my international connection and had to be re-routed."
Cons: "Average airline compared to Singapore & MZ airlines"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Cabin was cold and no blankets available."
Pros: "Everythinf was great, First time flying with them and I would do it again."
Pros: "Nothing exceptional"
Cons: "Change fees are ludicrous. Also flight was late."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "What poor services all round. The check in staff where on the phone or talk to themselves. No one even spoke to me at checkin. Then the boarding staff were so rude, they act like they own the plane and they are god. They would not answer anyone questions and just pointed at the screen. The airplane staff hello at least. But the food very so bad, even easyjet has better food. Also their understanding for the english was so poor but the air stewardess told me " we speak American" !!!!"
Pros: "Everything, it was my first time flying and I actually really enjoyed it! I'd be looking Forward to flying with this airline again!"
Pros: "I was traveling with a pet and they were very kind and helpful to me."
Pros: "The seats in this flight were quite roomy."
Cons: "Delayed and canceled flights with no apologies or explanations, rude crews who scoffed at complaints or requests of other passengers, lost baggage that took hours to recover, again without apology....I would rather pay a bit more than fly with American again, at least until these memories fade a bit."
Cons: "Carry On : crew did not help me find a spot for my carrying on. An older man actually found me a spot It was on this leg ( not the La Guardia to Chatlotte ) that the food tray kept opening after trying to close them ( old latches ) US airlines flight attendants don't understand how to talk to travellers . Asian airlines have excellent flight attendants"
Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."
Cons: "Paying extra for seating"
Cons: "This is a tiny plane and without warning they wouldn't let me carry on my carry on bag which would have fit just fine...it fit in their luggage test."
Cons: "The people were rude and made us stay on the plane an hour and a half after we landed."
Pros: "Other passengers trying to make light of hectic situation."
Cons: "Delayed because crew was not able to get to the gate in time. Once they arrived they got things moving but passengers were already flustered and the airline stewards also seemed flustered, their attempts and multiple announcements to move people faster did not help and actually made things move slower..."
Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "No food or drink given to me. Deliberately ignored by crew."
Pros: "I was in group 2"
Cons: "30 min delay+ poor service+ uncomfortable seats"
