Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"

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: "Short flight and they handed out chocolate"
Cons: "They announced that carry-on suitcases must be checked to accommodate a much smaller plane This only applied to those stupid enough (us) to comply"

Pros: "We did finally take off for our trip and get to our destination. The movies were tremendous help to pass the time. The food was delicious for hungry tired people"
Cons: "The crews rushed passed you and never offered if you needed further. One cup of soda after all those hours waiting left feeling dehydrated. Crews could have been more accommodating as made me feel like I was inconveniencing them instead of happy to assist me"

Pros: "Comfortable flight."

Cons: "Mackenzie Gray/ My flight was cancelled due to bad weather conditions unfortunately. I'm upset that I never received my initinerary for my substitute flight! I tried online and calling the # that was provided no results. I managed to get thru to someone and they told me they would send the info to my email but they never did."

Cons: "The boarding process is very uncomfortable as the passengers are asked to board the plane without any specific order, regardless of where they’re sitting, instead of boarding them by groups."

Cons: "My tv screen wasn’t working."

Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"

Pros: "Four economy short-hauls in two days: That extra tad legroom (A321, A320, CS100) Planes are very clean Good quality snacks Great staff"

Pros: "Flight itself was good, comfortable, staff were professional"

Pros: "short travel time"
Cons: "the landing was way too drastic. The pressure during landing was not gentle and I had a real hard time trying to allow my hearing to come back. The blood pressure in my head felt like my head would explode. My head hurt for a long time. Did not like the flight at all."

Pros: "Overall good"
Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"

Pros: "Plane was comfortable (for a plane) and the staff were polite and efficient. The flight made up lots of time and the in flight snacks were very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed, and the communications from Swiss was lacking. In fact their app thought the flight had taken off and landed on time?!"

Pros: "Flight was fine. The attendants on board were friendly and efficient. The food was nice though there wasn't much variety in drinks."
Cons: "It was awful getting boarding passes and paying for check in luggage in Venice. I assumed we couldn't check in early online much like the earlier Lufthansa flight. Then when we got to the airport there were long lines to check in and no machines to self check in. When we finally got to the front of the line the woman said we had to pay for our checked baggage elsewhere and then come back for the boarding passes. Unheard of elsewhere. The people in the office where you pay for checked baggage took their time and chatted and had no sense of urgency. The first woman we spoke to apparently filled out the form incorrectly. We had to rush to get to the plane and we barely made it through long security lines. We almost missed the plane due to the lack of early information and check in, the cumbersome payment process, etc. It was the worst check in process ever."

Pros: "We sat at the exit passage and enjoyed it"

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and friendly"
Cons: "The legroom was good but the seats were very narrow causing larger people to overlap the armrests"

Pros: "Croissants and chocolate on an early morning flight"

Pros: "crew very friendly.food excellent- thai curry vegetables, snacks. the flight arrived ahead of schedule despite slight delay. I appreciated that this was Swiss operated so no charge for skis, boots and poles."
Cons: "Not sure why loading is not by aisles, seems not that efficient"

Pros: "Registration and baggage check was fine, no line to wait im. The flight was moderately full. Good food and beverage service (although Lufthasa is a bit better)."
Cons: "Zurich airport dining facilities are poor - no choice of warm food and pricey."

Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."

Pros: "Modern air planes, plenty of leg room, comfortable seats, good service, USB outlet"
Cons: "Food wasn't so good, I ordered a Vegan meal and got the Vegetarian one"

Pros: "The best in flight service. I've taken Swiss air multiple times from Zurich to LA and I will never take another airline. The food is great, plenty of snacks and drinks. Great entertainment and the cabin crew treats you very well."

Pros: "I loved the timing of my connecting flights. Just enough layover time."
Cons: "There is no entertainment on this flight."

Pros: "This direct flight from Zurich-Newark is pretty comfortable, especially if you get the two seats at the either sides of the plane (it's a 2x4x2 config in Coach). The food is really good, they are generous with drinks and the crew is really friendly and smiling! Would take this flight again without any reservations in future!"

Pros: "Excellent boating procedure Friendly crew good service"
Cons: "Seats smaller, especially well the seat be afore head rest is pushed back!"

Pros: "The crew was terrific, the pilot provided us with lots of good information, and though the plane left late, it arrived on time."

Pros: "Everything is excellent"

Pros: "Spacious and good food"

Pros: "only a short 1 1/2 hr flight but the attendant was wonderful."
Cons: "only problem was with the pull out tray. We were in a bulkhead seat and my husbands tray was loose and tilted and his juice spilled all over. The attendant was very good and helpful in cleaning up. Think that the trays should be checked and tightened if necessary."

Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"

Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"

Cons: "All of the less than good, obvious!"

Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"

Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"

Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"
Cons: "SOME CREW MEMBERS WERE ABIT RUDE. THEY NEED TO WORK ON THEIR ATTITUDE"

Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"

Cons: "Crew members in Amsterdam were very rude and disrespectful"

Cons: "The plane is so old..,"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"
Cons: "The coffe and breakfast."

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"

Cons: "Travelled business class and was ace experience"

Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."

Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"

Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"

Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."

Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"

Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."

Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"

Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"

Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."

Pros: "The crew was efficient. Flight left on time. Food and wine served."
Cons: "No entertainment."

Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."

Cons: "Customer service"

Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."

Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."

Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."

Pros: "Boarding was quick, Flight on time....just a regular service and plane"
Cons: "Terminal 3 Manchester is not worth staying longer then necessary, loud music, crowded....old"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."

Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."

Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."

Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."

Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"

Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"

Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"

Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"

Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"

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: "Same as above"

Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food."

Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."

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: "captain was great."

Cons: "sardines!"

Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."

Pros: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."

Pros: "This flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Hire better competent people"

Pros: "..."
Cons: "I got stuck in the airport through the whole night"

Pros: "The flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Too many people with carry on luggage."

Pros: "Efficient boarding and friendly crew"

Cons: "The flight was delayed so I missed my connection, spending 6 hours in the Houston airport"

Pros: "The flight was late and barely made the connecting flight. In the end, my luggage arrived damaged."

Cons: "Late start by approximately 30 minutes. Made up the entire 30 in the air. Smooth ride all the way!"

Cons: "Better snacks"

Pros: "Ok."
Cons: "Less time with seatbelt sign on."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was delicious and flight was nice and smooth!"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better snacks would be nice, and there was no entertainment available, even for personal devices."

Pros: "The flight was on time... that is about all..."
Cons: "Too late to download app once on plane so stuck for hours without entertainment on a long flight. They wanted to charge for most everything. First class was not as good as economy on other airlines. I have no idea why anyone would select United on purpose. I know I will not pick them again..."

Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."

Pros: "United staff were ready in Panamá to handle the missed connections, with onward booking already handled and hotel vouchers ready for distribution upon deplaning."
Cons: "Late boarding and long wait on runway to be able to take off, thus ensuring connection in Panamá would be missed. Given that one runway was closed due to wind, this is something outside the control of United. Nevertheless, allowing a connecting flight with only 30 minutes between flights would seem to be overly risky, thus any delay upon departure will ensure a missed connection."

Cons: "No entertainment."

Pros: "Steward and Stewardess very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Walk between flights was extreme - tracked at about a mile! The video movie was incredibly choppy making entertainment frustrating."

Cons: "Multiple delays. On and off plane. Conflicting info"

Pros: "I have always loved flying Lufthansa however we didn't fly Lufthansa, we were on United for both legs of our flight. Like all American opperated airlines they skimp on comfort in order to pack more people on their flight. I hope we are on Lufthansa on our way home at least."
Cons: "We were on United, see above."

Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."

Pros: "The service was excellent! The crew was happy and accommodating."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Boarded the aircraft on a very cold January day. The cabin was not heated at all until the engines were started 25 minutes after boarding. Small kids were crying as they were so cold. Easily the most uncomfortable boarding ever. Where’s the heat!!! Money that tight!!!"
Cons: "Lack of heat made the boarding brutally uncomfortable."

Cons: "2 hour delay after almost 3 hour layover"

Pros: "Heather, the cabin flight attendant was wonderful. A great hostess that was very helpful to all the passengers and crew. The men on the flight deck were outstanding gentlemen. They helped an elderly lady without hesitation and made that little woman's day."
Cons: "Fully understanding the small size of the aircraft, it seems the seats continue to shrink. Flying in a little wider seat would be preferred, but is understandable. First class accommodations would be outstanding."

Pros: "The plane was clean, airy, comfortable, and not overbooked. The flight attendants treated me very well. Boarding was easy and the gate agent was extra pleasant."
Cons: "The flight attendants were downright rude to some of the other passengers, the ticketing agent had a nasty attitude and made for a very poor "first contact" experience with the airline. The front desk agents at the United Club in EWR were aggressively officious with a lot of the guests that day as well. Overall, customer service was very poor, even though the attendant on the flight were quite nice to me and gave me great service."

Cons: "The yogurt that was served in business class was out of date by 10 days"

Pros: "Comfort"

Cons: "Baggage was lost."

Cons: "My one stop flight was delayed in both departures While checking in online I changed my seat to row 15C, and when checked prior to boarding, the change was not done and had to travel in row 39C The aisle space is too small, so every person coming to the bathroom pushed me, also the fly attendants while pulling the food cart. The leg room was too small. There were no sweet cookies within the snacks. Fly attendants did their work, but were not particularly pleasing."

Pros: "Good schedule, leaves at 6pm and arrives at 8pm. Many nonstop flights during the day to SFO."
Cons: "We sat on tarmac for over 40 minutes since construction at SFO was going to cause is delays. Ended up being delayed 30 minutes. The flight was completely full and I got a middle Economy seat. United Basic Economy is terrible, makes flying United honestly worse than Spirit."

Cons: "Need more free snacks"

Pros: "They helped get me rerouted."
Cons: "It seems to be a common problem plaguing United. Last flight was 4 hours delayed. This time it was last minute notification of 2 hour delays that would automatically make a connection be missed. Delayed the whole trip by several hours. Getting tiered of constant problems with United."

Cons: "Coffee was not available, couldn't get the machine to work. I thought the stewardess could of at least offered and extra bag of snacks."

Pros: "Friendly, comfortable service"

Pros: "Needed wheelchair assistance and the wheelchair was not available right away to catch my next flight. If it wasn't for the airport employees running to take me to my next flight I would have never made it"

Pros: "The pilot did an okay job of keeping the passengers informed of the delays and what was taking so long on the flight."
Cons: "The plane was old, there was no legroom, it took the flight attendants way too long to get us something as basic as a glass of water, and the terminal is garbage considering it's a major hub for a major airline."

Pros: "I got a fair price ticket and plane wasn't dirty ."

Pros: "Thank you for a job well done!"

Pros: "Even in economy plus, I felt like a first class passenger."

Pros: "Friendly crew. On time"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding front to back. Boarding should be back to front."

Pros: "Great customer service, loved the Halloween outfits.!"

Cons: "San Francisco always has delays. You pull away fro. The gate & sit on the runway for 25-30 minutes. Frustrating."

Pros: "The Pilot is very proffesional."
Cons: "Very inconvenient to collect the luggages and check in again for a transit passenger. There is also no proper assistance in Ottawa. It is because of that one of my luggages didn't arrive with me. I wasted much time waiting and again claim to know the where about. I will never use Air Canada connection flight."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight arrived early after leaving late, more leg room than expected"
Cons: "Seats were very, very thin."

Pros: "did not crash"
Cons: "It appeared that flight was not ever scheduled to go to Providence, The plane was too large to land in Providence. United probably sold too many tickets. Arrived at 130 a.m. next day -- not 9 p.m. lie I was supposed to arrive. United offered a $100 e-ticket gift. I do not fly very often. Could use $100 cash or free flight to Providence -- not Boston"

Cons: "We boarded and waited then was told we would wait more for people on a late flight then something wrong was found on the flight. After over an hour we were able to get off. Then we were told about 20 minutes later to get back on. No one can see the future. What i did like is that you let us get off the plane for a while before our 3 hour destination. Wish that would have happened sooner. This. Was on the flight from Boston to Salt Lake"

Pros: "Plane was clean overall."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 5 hours. They saw it coming as delayed all day with equipment problems that morning and then Houston weather. Why didn't they substitute the aircraft? When we finally got to Chicago at midnight another group was still waiting to board. It's just amazing the crew didn't hour out."

Pros: "Not refunds, no voucher, no credits .... But still s stupid fee of U.S 200 to pay on my Next flight using same booking Code . RIDICULOUS !! Guess other airlines want my business and my friends' too.."
Cons: "Cancellation policy is just abusive !!"

Pros: "Everything was good, thanks to all."
Cons: "Thanks to crews for safe flight"

Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and kind, even with the issues with our departure."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over and over again due to "late crew" and after 2 hours, when we finally did board, we sat on the plane for over an hour before taking off."

Pros: "Overall very good. Friendly staff and timely arrival and departure"
Cons: "More leg room (on first flight) and drinks with ice!"
