Swiss Air rescheduled our connecting flight to 7:45 am. Our initial flight didn’t land until 10:20 am. The people at the Swiss Air counter said our flight was canceled. It was not canceled. THANK GOODNESS for United who rescheduled us on a flight the following day. Kayak, I was on hold the night prior to our flight to speak with you about this scheduling nightmare for 2.5 hours before the call was dropped. I did not receive a call back. I am very unhappy with Kayak’s customer service and lack of communication and do not plan to use your business in the future.
Delays throughout, lost baggage for all six people in our party. We were told the next day that our baggage was not the responsibility of Swissair and that they could not track it and that only Florence Airport could help us. Florence has no one available to speak with for most of the day. Stranded in paradise without clothes isn’t a great feeling.
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and attentive. Best in flight service I have received in a long time."
Cons: "The plane doesn't have usb ports to charge the phones, and as there are no screens or anything else, make sure you bring your battery pack."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, helpful, and attentive. I'd love to fly with them all the time"
Cons: "The business class seat felt a bit claustrophobic when in lie flat mode"
Cons: "Flight was 90 minutes late."
Cons: "This flight often arrives late so it is difficult to get to your hotel"
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive crew. Clean plane."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and overall I enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "Flight was very smooth and on schedule."
Cons: "Seating in economy was very cramped (pitch felt like 77”) and food and entertainment nothing special. Somehow I had higher expectations for comfort and service, even in economy."
Pros: "האוכל והשירות מצוינים והטייסים מצוינים"
Cons: "מקום ישיבה צפוף מידי"
Pros: "Swissair seating is cramped with 10 across in coach in Boeing 777. The only reason for not giving "poor" rating on this particular ZRH-SFO flight, was the empty seat next to me."
Cons: "Next time, I will give Turkish Airlines a chance, because their aircraft seats only 9 across in Boeing 777 coach. On the SFO-BUD flight, the connection is through Istanbul, but the flight time is the same 15 hours, as on the SFO-ZRH-BUD route. In addition, two checked bags are free in coach."
Cons: "I was asked to check my carry-on. I have used this carry-on more than 50x without an issue. I have even put it in the smaller compartments on smaller Bombardier jets. I don't have an issue with being asked to check luggage, but I resent being asked when others are allowed to take their carry-on onto to the plane without issue. Right in front of me while I was waiting for a baggage tag, others were being checked in with carry-on equal to mine and allowed to take it onto the plane. I can only surmise that my ticket limited me to one bag onto the plane, although they would not tell me this. This was not clear when I booked the ticket nor when I checked in on-line. I had a 40 minute connection in Zurich so was very concerned that my luggage would not make it. Luckily, it did make it to my next stop. Swiss Air seems to have different restrictions than other airlines which I have encountered before. I take ownership that I should be aware of a tickets restrictions but this was a multi-leg trip (5). However, I will tend to avoid Swiss air in the future, to avoid having to research their unique restrictions."
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The boarding process need improvement. The sits are very tight."
Cons: "Palermo never ready for plane arrival"
Pros: "Very positive experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of a flight late arriving from Barcelona. Unlike an international flight...no entertainment & only a slight snack food. Still highest marks for the crew and the service that they provided"
Pros: "Service and Aircraft B777"
Pros: "We called for seats 23 hours prior to flight. To our amazement we were assigned to an exit row."
Cons: "It was an easy 2.5 hrs. flight at which a small warm quiche was served. Nice surprise."
Pros: "Crew very courteous as usual"
Cons: "Lately all Swiss flights I have taken are late. This last one was 1 hour late. No more sandwich is offered, or even chips or peanuts. The only drink available for free was a glass of water! Not even a small bottle!! Bye bye Swiss service!"
Pros: "Crew great service"
Cons: "Boarding was slow —delayed takeoff for nearly an hour"
Pros: "The airplane was cool and the time for arriving was correct as well as easy to check in. The pilot was good and they told us who won on the World Cup tournament I liked that. There was a younger crew memeber she was reaaally nice."
Cons: "I asked when i got my ticket for a window seat and he said he gave me one but he did not in the two flights I got. I requested the crew for a window seat if possible since I had been feelin nauseated, it did not help that the guy sitting next to me had a really bad breat and smelled bad. They offered me a sit in the middle of the plane, that did not work well because I was feeling sick, being in between a big guy and a bigger lady was not going to help at all. There was an older crew member and she seemed to be kinda discussed with the trash even though she was using gloves. Food was ok but not the best. To top it off I told them that the headphones connection wasn’t working and they only brought me a pair of new headphones. I tried mine and they didn’t worked, so the whole 8 hrs of flight I was watching movies with sound only from on side. They didn’t even bother, I guess cuz I am economy? Not sure I did see some free chairs in the lanes between economy and first class but they didn’t even suggested that so I decided to suck it up and sit on my assigned chair. The bathrooms where dirty and smelled reaaally bad from the beginning that really was disgusting to be honest. I can let go many things but not that. I had to help the passenger sitting next to me cuz he didn’t know how to do anything and didn’t speak English, he was an older man, with signs I was able to show him how an airplane works. I never complain about flights but this one was tooo many little things. Oh and what about an international flight where I have to pay for a second bag! Really? I did it on my way to Europe and I thought I payed both and then I had to do it again. Whatever money I thought I could save was a lie because I ended up paying a lot more adding the bags and additional transportation for home based on the airports. I am not satisfied at all with the flight experience"
Pros: "Service was great and the flight very smooth. Great flight!"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "TV's did not work. Food was lousy."
Cons: "Need to make it more clear that it is necessary to complete a second passport controle at the boarding gate....causing confusion for some travelers who are not aware of this extra step"
Pros: "There was a very long line at the check in counter on the way back. Many people were nervous about missing their flights. Apparently the counter computers were out of order and they only had 2 stations to support the passengers at a very busy time. Other than that, everything was smooth and pleasurable."
Pros: "Small screens. Hard to use"
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer from HK to Western Europe and it’s a problem transversal to the majority of the airlines. Service quality drops significantly when coming to Asia. Flights to Europe provide exceptional service."
Pros: "My partner and I loved our first flight with Swiss from JFK to Zurich the chairs was amazing, we enjoyed the full bed and the entertainmnet screen was amazing to enjoy. The food was delicious and the service was amazing."
Cons: "My Partner and I was dissatisfied with our connecting from Zurich to Cairo. We expected the same flight but we were in basically in coach with little more leg room. The chairs barely reclined to a comfortable position. There was no entertainment, just a three and a half hour flight at the flight plan on a small tv hanging over. their was no differentiation between the economy behind us. just the food that was brought to us, other felt the same as well who were traveling in business with us."
Cons: "The flight was 1:20 hours delay so it arrived at midnight to Vienna. Even they refused to accept all the cabin bags on board. Very disspointed with Swiss. I’m flying twice time a week and I never experience so frustating experience like Swiss Air"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Food was good"
Cons: "Crew was slow to pick up dishes and trash after meals. Passenger in front of me reclined seat leaving little room for me to watch the video screen or read."
Cons: "Very late gate change during boarding process resulting in untimely departure."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Super slow boarding. Long lines at check in"
Pros: "I was concerned the connections would be too tight but it worked out great!"
Pros: "The flight attendants are great and their aircraft are very clean and comfortable. I especially appreciated the request for passengers to raise their seat backs during meal times."
Pros: "The Swiss airline bit was about an hour late. Weather etc. But such things happen. The flight itself was fine. They even served food and a beer."
Cons: "The queues at Heathrow for passport control were long. The non-EU q was awful. Luckily the tube was running all night on those lines we needed."
Pros: "+ Crew, professional and polite."
Cons: "- food unevenly cooked - No entertainment - Small toilet"
Cons: "Have to take a bus to the plane for boarding. Terrible cold sandwich wrapped in a partly open loose paper bag wrap. Short flight I realize, but that was bad, especially in business class."
Pros: "All was good except the snack - it was ok"
Cons: "n/a - quick flight"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight overall. Made a long flight seem not so bad."
Pros: "Crew handled it well"
Cons: "A gap between flights for 20 hours"
Pros: "The food,crew and flight were flawless. Our flight scheduling had us connecting within a thirty minute period in zurich and we had to run to catch the flight. Probably would have missed the connection if our 26 year old son didn't run ahead. Too much drama and no one from swiss air to help. Suggest more time for transfer in the future or someone to guide passengers. We were nit the only ones. However, we did make it as did the others ( luggage too!)so kudos to swiss for waiting"
Pros: "Very comfortable seats for coach, good service."
Pros: "Same as above, we were really pleased with the service and the food, and the crew was great!"
Cons: "Seats a little close together but not terrible."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "This aircraft should be retired long time ago"
Cons: "The flight crew was horrible. The desk crew inept. A wheelchair was requested but not there on checkin. Pre boarding did not happen as was supposed to. Older person male at desk was rude, insulting and sarcastic. This did not happen on Boston end. The person was there with wheelchair at the Boston gate and assisted us. Not in Zurich. What about handicap travel? Swiss????"
Pros: "Entertainment system. Flight crew was awesome. Always ready to help in any way."
Cons: "Just the seats were to close together coupled with small seats is at times uncomfortable. Even this is a reach however, I was pleased with Swiss being the first time flying with them."
Cons: "The plane had a flea infestation that left both my wife and I with tiny bites on our legs - during the layover the flight attendants came through and sprayed the air vents in the overhead with an aerosol - I had never seen that done before but I suspect that Swiss knew the plane had microscopic flees that were biting passengers. We flew business class and expected much better from Swiss."
Pros: "The service , the hospitality and kindness"
The boarding process at jfk was a nightmare. The gate staff were inappropriate. The plane was old and needs to be refurbished or replaced. There still is a middle seat in business class. The cabin crew appeared disinterestedor perhapstired. For the cost of the ticket qatar etihad or emirates airlines are a superior choice.
You at KAYAK should know this flight NEVER took off. And yet you are asking for the survey?
It was just before we boarded the aircraft that we had to literally go thru another security check, we were body checked, all our carry on luggages inspected again and swabbed down. The staff were very rough and not courteous, we were treated like scum. The business class experience for travellers should be better, we were then lined up with Economy class passengers. Turkish Airlines Ground Staff are extremely rude and condescending, muttering under their breath, laughing and being very disrespectful. This was very demeaning.
We bought seat 155$ but in reality it wasn't .no seat ,no refund
Cons: "Canceled flight without warning. Terrible crew coordination to help with the issue. Not flying Turkish again."
Cons: "No delays would be good"
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Cons: "the boarding was delayed and i missed my connection flight and have to stay 8 hours for another flight."
Cons: "Delay in Turkey- made trip long - I understand safety first - but it was a couple hours ."
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Pros: "Great selection of movies, excellent food, friendly service."
Cons: "Boarding required a lot of waiting in lines only to be moved to another area where we had to wait again. There was very little leg room in between seats."
Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Far from what usually TK is expected to offer on an short international flight"
Pros: "Hot,moist washcloths & overnight travel kits (slippers, toothbrush & paste, sleep mask, ear plugs) , good food, flowers in bathroom - first class touches in economy !"
Pros: "Nothing is changing, they need to make some adjustments"
Pros: "New airplane good service good flight attendant depart on time"
Pros: "Excellent service, food, and entertainment options!"
Cons: "At gate sign advertised their lie flat beds in business.. we were on business. No lie flat beds!"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Pros: "Large screens, reusable dishes + silverware"
Cons: "Plane was old, felt more squished and the seats did not decline. Also very note."
Pros: "Super staff"
Cons: "Bad WiFi connection"
Cons: "The flight to Lviv was cancelled after 3 hours delay. All happens in life. But the only option Turkish airlines were offering is to fly the next day. I was flying to the funeral and this was not working for me (especially this was their second flight to Lviv cancelled - 2 in a row). The transfer desk didn't inform that there were two other flights going the same day of other airlines. When i approached to help me to go with a different airline the personal was very rude saying they will not help transferring the luggage and that they can't unload the luggage sooner than 3 hours after you go out of the security and passport control. When i asked to book to a different destination in Ukraine. It took 50 min at the desk to do it. Simply because 4 people at the desk were laughing and joking and nobody was concerned about the queue of over 40 people staying. After 30 min it turned out they've lost my boarding pass and it took 15 min to find it as one of the transfer guys managers simply took it to a different room... At the end when they found it it took only 5 min to do the work. I would appreciate more information from the desk about available flights and more support to manage the situation. I'm happy that people at the transfer desk are so joyful and happy it obviously helps to deal with the stressed passengers whose flight was cancel."
Pros: "I was so impressed by every staff of Turkish Airlines.. I was very young when TWA. Was an elite airlines, with the flight attendants dress perfect.. it made me feel like I was flying first class...with this being my first time using Turkish airlines I actually will use them over the American Airlines; just because the way I was treated and how quickly someone was willing to assist anyone.... I say you are the best!"
Pros: "Crew is super nice and helpful. Aircraft is pleasant"
Cons: "Food is okay but the portions are tiny."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Food, as always on THY, was tasty."
Pros: "Comfy seats, bit more leg room than other airlines. It arrived earlier!"
Pros: "No delays Courtesy of crew Very pleasant fly"
Pros: "The seats in economy were very comfortable, food was excellent, crew was friendly and accommodating, entertainment selection was excellent, and I really appreciated the small care packages handed out (with lip balm, slippers, toothbrush/paste, socks, and eye cover)."
Cons: "About 8 hours into the flight the restrooms became very, VERY unclean--urine on the floors, sinks clogged, smelled terrible. More restroom maintenance was needed throughout this long flight. I thought this airline was the nicest I have been on save this one issue. It would be great if Turkish Airlines could resolve it in the future! Additionally the boarding process in Istanbul was like herding cattle. People weren't seated according to boarding group and it was absolute mayhem--no single file line, people shoving past one another to get seated first on the same plane."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the food is amazing"
Cons: "After the second hour the temperature inside the aircraft was very warm started to sweat"
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Pros: "It is very hard to separate the hassle of air travel from the airlines so the size of your seat and the many security checks that infuence our opinion are beyond their power. The food, service, little overnight packet and staff were excellent."
Cons: "The general hassle of air travel. Small seats, little space and the herding thru security and long lines. You really have to be slim and trim to fit in the seats and walk the long distances from one gate to another. Great motivation for getting in shape and loosing weight."
Cons: "The international transfer line in Istanbul was an absolute nightmare. I had to jump to the front of the line or I would have missed my connection despite having a 90 minute window of time to make it through. It seems this airport lacks the capacity needed to get people through efficiently based on the numbers of travelers using it."
Pros: "El servicio del personal a bordo fue muy bueno. La comida me pareció de buen sabor. El boarding se puede hacer desde el lounge."
Cons: "El chreck in en el aeropuerto de IAD no me gustó. Abre a las 7:10 para el vuelo de las 11."
Pros: "I would love to fly with them again"
Cons: "Staff is mean, impolite, and inefficient."
Pros: "The food was really good but very little"
Cons: "Unfortunately I asked three ( 3 ) time for plankitte during the flight but with No response from (2 )differant"
Pros: "Good attitude of aircrew"
Cons: "There was heavy rain in Instanbul and our luggage was not covered. Half my clothing was soaked when I received it in Erbil. No rain in Erbil or Frankfurt, so I know who is to blame. Turkish Airlines in Instanbul. No way are they the best in Eurpoe..."
Cons: "Update your multimedia for entertainment"
Pros: "Great crew, pleasant fligt"
Pros: "The crew, as usual on Turkish airlines, was wonderful. Excellent service and patience.Warmly recommend Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Cons: "My luggage did not come with the flight. Too short a time between Ankara-Istanbul flight and Istanbul-Accra flight. I missed the flight because of delays at Passport Control and had to fly the next day."
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "I love the comfort and hospitality offered by the Turkish"
Pros: "Great service, amazing food. A lesson to be learned by the American carriers'"
Pros: "Good tasting food"
Cons: "Slow crew with no flexibility at all. They did not respond to any "custom" request.(e.g. milch for the kids.)"
Pros: "Movies crew"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, food and overall experience."
Cons: "Bottleneck at gate"
Cons: "The procedures at Naples Airport were a bit of a mess... had to wait for checkin information and a long circular walk through many shops to get to the gates. We did not appreciate that."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Leg room. Hardly any for a person 6' and above"
Cons: "Boarded plane from front of plane back. I paid €18 extra for my seat and I was the last to board. My bag was taken from me because there wasn’t room and it was lost during my layover. Crew members were all scowling and not helpful."
Cons: "Flight from Romania was delayed and when we got to Athens we had to go threw customs and security and we lost the connecting flight to crete. We were put on a different flight which that was delayed as well. When we finally arrived in crete all of our luggage’s have been lost."
Cons: "The plane was delayed but having a hot meal was A nice surprise."
Pros: "Aegean is a fine airline overall"
Cons: "I had a carry-on bag, no problem on the flight from Madrid to Athens; but on the return trip they weighed the bags of some passengers, and when mine was over the limit -- which, however, was not indicated in the baggage restrictions -- they charged me 60 euros and I had to check it right there."
Pros: "The Crews welcoming, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "It’s nit necessarily comfortable... really hard to sleep"
Cons: "Treated like peasants rather than customers. An annoyance to the check in staff rather than someone trying to enjoy a holiday. Totally disgusted with their attitude. Can’t wait for the return leg....."
Pros: "i try to cancel the tickets for 3 weeks now.... please help"
Pros: "The space for the legs"
Pros: "The staff were nice."
Cons: "Food. Queued too long before we could board."
Cons: "Flight was late two hours..."
Cons: "Had to double pay for baggage. Total scam"
Pros: "The flight was delayed a bit, about a half hour in total, but the staff on the plane were very courteous. We were served a nice Greek meal even though the flight was only 3.5 hours long. Seats were comfortable. US airlines could learn a lot from Aegean."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 30 minutes"
Cons: "We couldn’t check in until 90 minutes before Departure."
Cons: "Charged me $70 and made me check my bag as I was boarding. Had no other option"
Cons: "The plane has an hour delay in Rome due to rain. Although the delay is understandable, they seem to have left my luggage outside in the rain for all that time. As a result, all my clothes were wet and ruined and a few other items broke. Horrible baggage handling."
Pros: "the most beautiful highly skilled attendants! On time flight in every segment. Awesome value for price, Olympic airlines is 55555+ I hope to visit Crete again soon and use this airline."
Cons: "The agent at check in refused to even consider a business class upgrade, said I had to do that 48 hours in advance. Seems like a stupid policy to me, unless she was just flat out lying to me."
Cons: "The airport. The beauracracy- given the limited transfer time."
Pros: "I like the people and the crew and the plane."
Cons: "That my bags had to be checked for an outrageous price of 50 euros per bag."
Pros: "Not much. Used to be friendly, comfortable airline. "Efficiencies have taken their toll""
Cons: "Difficulty with on line purchase of checked bag lead to extreme cost (worse than Ryan Air!!!). Apparently stressed and therefore less than friendly attendants. Very tight seating. Food was quite good but hard to eat in VERY cramped seating!"
Pros: "Had to pay to check my bag in. Even though it was a patronize."
Pros: "I love flying Aegan - it is always comfortable and pleasant. Due to my own mistake I didn't order a kosher/vegetarian meal, which is why I rated the food "N/A". On flights this short there are no entertainment options which is fine I suppose :) overall, this is one of my favorite airlines to fly! Thanks!"
Pros: "They give you a hot meal, even on a short flight."
Cons: "Their dimensions for carry on luggage are smaller than the industry norm. As such, bags that most any other airline would consider carry on, must be checked for 40 Euros on Aegean."
Pros: "It got me to Larnacasafely."
Cons: "Seats were horribly uncomfortable. I will not fly this airline again after my last trip onthe 14th of August."
Pros: "We liked that there was food offered on such a short flight and complimentary wine! The crew was also really nice."
Cons: "There was a 45 minute delay on our flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours and there was very little information offered as to what to expect. I was grateful I did not have a connecting flight as surely I would have missed it. The gate agent seemed to be completely lost and at one point started boarding and then had to ask those that had boarded to deplane. The seats were rather uncomfortable to begin with but then add to that being in the last row next to the toilets and the galley AND with crew members stepping on the side of my seat to reach supplies in the overhead bin without warning."
Pros: "Friendly staff, clean airplane"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew and the food."
Cons: "Not enough room. I'm not a tall person and my legs we're smashed against the seat. The person behind me was an adult and kept hitting my seat so I could get no sleep."
Pros: "Onboard food is always excellent. Great legroom (row 5 on a321) from Athens to London (LHR). Seats are comfortable enough and servers are always pleasant."
Pros: "Service and boarding was smooth and professional. Everything was nice in regard to the flight. Very pleasant crew."
Cons: "Very tight seats. I am glad I am not a large person or had to sit next to one. It would have been very difficult. Even in these days of tight seats this was smaller than most."
Pros: "The attitude of the staff was awesome. They give you a piece of candy when you sit down. Flight was on time. They actually appreciate your business. Highly recommend. The complete opposite of Norwegian Air"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I only had a 45 minute flight so it's hard to really judge anything but it wasn't a bad experience. Overall Neutral feeling."
Pros: "Good flight overall. It was nice to receive drinks."
Cons: "We were 30 minutes late to board so I missed the bus from the airport and had to wait an hour at the airport."
Pros: "I slept through most of the flight."
Cons: "Everything else. Especially that I had to pay $60 for one luggage."
Pros: "Snack was a light meal of pasta with melted white cheese & spinach, bread sticks, and a pastry/cookie. Yummy!"
Cons: "Plane remained on tarmac for 45 minutes before leaving causing us to be about 1 hour late."
Pros: "On time departures and on time arrivals, full meal service and drinks"
Pros: "the service food and punctuality"
Pros: "The flight was completely full so they offered to check in the larger pieces of carry-on luggage for free. On board the plane, the breakfast was really excellent (plane food-wise) and the attendants were very friendly. In terms of comfort, I was lucky to sit in row 3 (yes, that was Economy class), so I actually had some leg room. On my way to Athens, I'd been seated in row 22 and there was no chance to move my legs at all."
Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly and helpful. The plane was clean and for the most part departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "The boarding process...it was a zoo. All customers are in line boarding at the same time and the gate agent did nothing to prevent it. The cost for a checked bag was 45 Euro which seems awfully high to me. Perhaps it's cheaper if you book it beforehand as opposed to at the airport."
Pros: "25 minutes flight was awesome! Pilot take off and landing was smooth."
Cons: "Luggage at baggage claim took longer to receive than the check in and flight combined"
Pros: "The staff at the counter and on the flight were very helpful."
Cons: "They could use better line control at the Budapest airport. It was unclear which was the appropriate line and the lines were more like a crowd merging than a line."
Pros: "Checking was managed efficiently and courtrously"
Cons: "Everything went smoothly"
Overall a pleasant flight.
Travelling from Nigeria was a nightmare. Those thugs at the airport gave my husband and i hell because we had our boarding passes on our phone. We had to keep bribing and begging them to let us through. It is the worse travel experience I’ve ever ever had in my entire life. And I travel a lot
They canceled our flights but they flew anyway.
Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"
Pros: "General flight journey"
Cons: "Late departure. Rush to connect."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
Pros: "Everything was good except for the entertainment consul for one of our seats."
Cons: "One of our entertainment consuls had to be rebooted 4 times and still didn’t work. We gave up asking."
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Cons: "I ordered Wheel chair for my parents but one of them didn't get it at all. When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."
Pros: "Overall booking and airport was ok. Food was also actually quite good."
Cons: "A comfort of the seats... well its economy class in the end. Entertainment was just dreadful - small screen with visible pixels - I was unable to watch any movie."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"
Pros: "Excellent service. A meal , drink and a coffee included which we were not expecting."
Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."
Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Pros: "More than adequate room, And very good service from a very professional staff. Head and shoulders abovevany American carrier, and several European lines I have flown."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."
Cons: "Food and one bathroom out of service makes an awful flight"
Pros: "expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy"
Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."
Pros: "Cabin crew were very professional."
Cons: "Aircraft returned to gate due to fault and was delayed for 45 min."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"
Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
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: "Special treat for King's Day Friendly crew"
Cons: "15 min late boarding 30 min delay leaving the gate Very little leg room"
Pros: "The price was nice."
Cons: "Plane looked unkept on exterior. Crew was nice but lazy."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived ahead of time. Baggage arrived very promptly. Seats comfortable."
Cons: "Very limited movie choices on inflight entertainment. Seatbelt short, unable to keep secured except sitting straight in seat. No food which is now typical most domestic flights 4 hours or less."
I transited through LHR on my way to and from Lisbon Portugal (Oct 27 & Nov 6). There were several challenges to add files and complete the Passenger Locator Form at home/hotel and at the airport counters. This presented further challenges to those without smart phones, charged devices or unable to access the internet. This was neither a user-friendly nor an intuitive process. Please consider sharing data with the airline(s) to facilitate this process and further simply the process for those in transit. Check in took almost 1.5 hours and a near-missed flight.
Better communication about boarding delays and gate assignment.
BA rescheduled the flight twice & then cancelled it altogether with no rebooking options.
Pros: "We were able to leave the country quickly."
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Cons: "Timeliness. Cleanliness. Service. Food and drinks."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Se take to much turbulence"
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"

Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"
Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."
Cons: "Not even water provided without charge on the morning flight from Portugal to London."
Pros: "Left relatively on time, friendly crew, clean cabin, and good enough"
Cons: "Completely disorganized boarding from front and back of aircraft led to clogged isles as people from the back tried to make it to the front and visa versa."
Pros: "Good crew!"
Cons: "No complimentary coffee or soft drinks! No entertainment!"
Pros: "My flight was delayed and rescheduled 3 to 4 times. Then once flight took off, There were no complementary snacks...not even water."
Cons: "All of the above. There should have at least been free water on the flight, given that it was significantly delayed"
Pros: "Actually was British Airways and not another airline. Service was great."
Cons: "Closed the flight too early and didn't help rebook... cost me thousands of dollars. Lisbon airport was a mess and they didn't even wait 5 minutes after the official end of boarding. Set on the tarmac for 25 minutes, but didn't take passengers in the meantime. No humanity.... never using BA again."
Pros: "Good enough room, and had personal screens to watch movies and TV"
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly and the aircraft was in good condition."
Cons: "Everything costs extra, even water. The flight was long enough that an entertainment system would have been welcome. Finally, it landed at Heathrow—a terrible place to make a connection."
Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"
Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."
Cons: "Because of a problem at the car rental place we were not able to check our bags until 50 minutes before the flight. British Airways would not take the bags and we missed our flights Neither webjet who had booked our flight or British Airways would help us figure out a new flight. We had to buy a whole new flight."
Pros: "personal movies on a long flight"
Cons: "Guy in front reclining his chair. Very difficult to eat your meal when this happens."
Cons: "I needed water to take my medication and they only offered water for purchase. No other complimentary beverages were offered for the 2 hour 10 minute flight. I then tried to purchase water and the machine rejected 3 times. My card worked perfectly on all flights and during my entire trip in Portugal. After assuring me if was probably their machine not my card, I was still not offered water."

Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They were out of a lot of the food options on the flight."
Pros: "The only good thing was that the flight departed on time. On arrival we had to go into a holding pattern, then once on the ground, there was a glitch and we were held on the place for about 30 minutes. We did make our next flight, however, but some people missed theirs."
Cons: "No food was offered -- except to buy -- even though it was breakfast-time. This was a very disappointing flight!"

Pros: "The free entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed 19 hrs due to crew illness. We were given a hotel room but the promised meal vouchers did not come through and BA would not answer the phone calls of the hotel staff to verify meal money. Missed a whole day of our vacation as we could not reschedule our connection until 24 hrs late. After the long wait the first day to be told what was going on, with much anxiety, on the second day there was also a delay boarding. Although it was short, of course everyone was on edge. And BA did not tell us what was happening!!"

Cons: "The whole trip."
