Cons: "The plane was extremely cramped as the seats reclined so far back that it rested on my knees. It was extremely difficult to keep my seat back up which created an uncomfortable angle for my back on a 9 hour flight. The cabin was extremely warm and there was little airflow. The airline also lost our luggage"

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

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and helpful."

Pros: "Nice experience."
Cons: "Seats are not so comfortable. Crew is nice, but not too nice"

Cons: "We (parents) were business class, but our two kids in coach, yet Swiss doesn’t allow “guests” in the lounge. Hmmm. What a bunch of BS."

Pros: "We like being able to check our ski equipment without extra charge. Service is consistently professional and courteous."
Cons: "Being charged for seat selection. The late hour of departure for the Boston to Zurich flight."

Pros: "Very professional!"

Pros: "On time and standard service."

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."

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!"

Cons: "They rebooked me on a later flight this same day. This flight to Geneva (change of airports) was late and the flight to Vienna took off with no passengers from our flight, after we were told it would wait. ' I paid for premium seats and did not get rebooked for the same. I am sitting in the Geneva airport for 7 and 1/2 hours, losing my meetings in Vienna. I never expected such poor service from Swissair."

Cons: "Space for legs seems to become smaller and smaller. In EL AL (flight back) space was wider."

Pros: "on time, good food, pleasant service"

Pros: "Good clean service that Swiss is known for."
Cons: "There’s never overhead space for carryon. Ever since they went to lift, I have had to put my luggage in a row near the rear, making me wait until the plane almost complete Disembarks before able to get the bag."

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."

Pros: "Skop"
Cons: "Skopje airport personnel was very bad service ticket counter worst ever"

Pros: "Swiss is always a tad nicer than the alternatives"

Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "No entertainment"

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

Pros: "Loved my experience with Swiss airlines. Comfortable and pleasant flight."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled in the middle of the night the night before, forced me to find another flight and re-book my morning 6:45am flight tickets at midnight for next morning. Not fun."

Pros: "Staff was very courteous; they fed us well"

Cons: "Very tight seating in economy for a transcontinental flight"

Pros: "Food & beverage, onboard entertainment and beauty product in the bathroom was good."
Cons: "Service was okay and the seats were horribly uncomfortable. Not what I remember from Swiss when I use to fly constantly with them 2 years ago. Also, I was singled out by the crew at the gate and pulled aside. Racially profiling at its finest."

Pros: "Crew handled it well"

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."

Cons: "People who handle Swiss"

Pros: "Good seats - comfortable Attentive service"
Cons: "Found my business class seat given away to a lady with a dog. Mine was window but with extra table next to aisle. She had aisle seat but with exactly the same configuration. Idea was she would place the dog on the table space next to her seat. It would be exactly the same for both seats. Do not know what they were thinking. There were other business class seats on the other side that had the table space ext to the window away from the aisle. That would make sense for the lady with dog. Business class was full and I was the last to get on, 45 minute connection in Zurich from terminal A to E, my seat was given. But as I objected, they moved the dog lady and gave me back my seat. But they never asked a person in the seat that would have made sense to give her to trade seats."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Good food and entertainment. Comfortable seats."

Pros: "The new 777-300 is great. besides the disorganized boarding, everything else was great!"

Cons: "Notithing to dislike comes to mind."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The most racist and unfriendly and uncivilized people ever."

Pros: "Great food and sevice"
Cons: "Hard to sleep on the plane. Way too expensive to take a guitar as either checked luggage or carry on."

Pros: "Loved this flight, crew was amazing!"

Cons: "All was good"

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"

Cons: "There was a very loud group teenagers/young adults that kept getting up visiting each other and hitting on other customers seats. After 7 hours of the crew nor anyone else saying anything to them I called the crew & asked them to have them quiet down and sit down. The staff should’ve handled better"

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "food screens"

Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."

Pros: "Lufthansa will always be my choice airline. Their staff are nicely dressed, accommodating and well mannered."
Cons: "On this trip back to Dublin, our flight from Munich to Dublin was delayed for over two hours. It would be nice for Lufthansa to at least offer the passengers something to eat or drink while on board waiting for such a long time."

Pros: "This was our return flight back to the US much better then going to Europe!"
Cons: "The only thing i wish all airlines would consider is to give us regular folks more room(space) not just the rich people in business or first class! On a 10+hr flight it is well needed!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had a connecting flight, both were with Lufthansa. There was an hour between the two flights. We went straight to security and immediately to the boarding gate but they had closed the gate and would not let us board, even though there was 15 minutes before the flight was due to leave. We were refused a refund and had to move flights to another airport 2 hours away and then had a 5 hour delay. We lost our car reservation as we would arrive too late to collect, we also couldn't check in to our hotel as planned as the hotel only allow check in until 11pm; we would have got there at 1am, so then had to book another hotel for the night. Airport staff at Lufthansa told us they could not help and told us to go away!"

Pros: "Very roomy seats, friendly attendants. Nice sunset. My sister liked the 'tour' of the airport on taxiing to the gate. I found it frustrating. The plane was about 30 minutes late which was nice because it took a while to get off our Munich flight, find our new gate and we ended up nearly running to the gate."
Cons: "I, again, didn't like walking down 3 flights of stairs, getting a crowded bus to take us to the plane. We are used to using a jetway to the plane. I realize that European airports are busier than American airports though."

Pros: "A lot of legroom and good food for an airplane! The inflight entertainment has games, shows, movies, and a cool map. Plus the crew was friendly. This economy flight felt like premium!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about!"

Pros: "The Germans are known for their efficiency and Lufthansa followed through with that. From the check-in process to cabin service, all was top notch. As I was sitting near the front of economy, any "extra" economy plus meals were handed out as to avoid waste. I was the recipient of a delicious Caprese salad. A nice treat."

Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Sno excuse for delaying a flight due to paperwork. The rescheduling was chaotic"

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The boarding process and the fees"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Packed flight. LH seats are narrow and the front porch is not extensible enough. Hard to place books and newspapers. Film selection so so."

Pros: "Excellent service during the two hour trip. No complaints whatsoever!"
Cons: "No headrest screens for entertainment but I had my phone and downloaded movies and shoes prior to leaving the US."

Pros: "Flight was good, comfort was good. Crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "The food on Lufthansa flights is getting worse and worse."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and the good was quite good."
Cons: "Nothing that can be changed. It was a long flight."

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight for a great price! The US carriers cannot compete with Lufthansa or any European airlines as a matter of fact."
Cons: "Touchscreen of the entertainment system was not very sensitive and had false readings. Annoying but not critical."

Pros: "The crew was really great. So pleasant and helpful. And, it was nice this time as it wasn't too crowded!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"

Cons: "flight crew hit my chair all the time with the troller. Bought the places with bigger space on the legs, that was true, but was dissapointed with the type of chair that is totally closed at the sides, with no scape room for the legs laterally."

Pros: "Professionalism of the crew"
Cons: "tight sits"

Pros: "Crew was welcoming and seats ok for a short flight."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Movies / Food"
Cons: "Seat location. Delay time boarding."

Pros: "A340 was not the A380 but very nice. Had isle seat and seat next to me was open making for a very comfortable flight."
Cons: "The boarding process is a bit messy. While the lines went fairly fast, the "line" to board by section was all over the place. Would be better to simplify the process and board by groups or at least have a better way to line up"

Pros: "Best trip and crew that i ever had"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"

Pros: "Changed planes, flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "2 hour delay"

Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"

Pros: "The flight was not fully booked."
Cons: "The snack provided was totally insufficient. the check-in staff were stringent about luggage size and weight even when the flight was not full."

Cons: "Gate distances were too far away and passport control in Munich is not organized"

Pros: "We had nothing to complain about and much to be happy about. The seating in economy (seats 36A and 36C and an Airbus 330-300) was generous compared to other airlines we've flown recently (e.g., on a 777 with United on the way over, and that was "Economy PLUS!). The food was much better than the United flight, and really, it was almost too much. I'm home 14 hours after landing and I'm still not hungry. They were also very generous with the drinks and worked to keep us well hydrated with water and juices. The crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Overall, it was a great experience and I will certainly look to Lufthansa first for my next transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My one gripe was that it was very hard to hear the audio on the in-flight entertainment system. I even abandoned one movie I really wanted to see because I couldn't follow the dialogue. Also, I discovered late in the flight that the view screen pivoted and this would have helped in enjoying the videos more. Here's an idea for Lufthansa: how about adding "Tips" to somewhere in the Entertainment system to improve your seat, viewing, and other experiences. For instance, I wasn't aware that the head cushion on the seats were adjustable to better support your head. One last thing, on the entertainment system, it appears to be browser based, but sadly lacks a "Back" button equivalent."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Very bad customer experience, the seat are very uncomfortable, and they stole money from my hand bag after sending it to the plane cargo"

Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"

Pros: "Crew was nice Lots of movie choices but the headphone jack isn't compatible with regular personal headphones so you had to use theirs which were uncomfortable and poor sound quality"
Cons: "And they lost our luggage."

Pros: "Food & Entertainment were OK"
Cons: "My seat was 32C , me being disabled (wheelchair). My wife seat was 32 A and was DEFECTIVE. It could not be lowered towards the back, actually it has only the fixed position (all the way up). The lady from the seat before my wife's (31A) was lowering her seat ALL THE WAY. my wife protested, the crew tried unsuccessfully to adjust my wife's seat. Finally, instead of considering my condition and relocating us to some other seats (there were several free on this flight), the crew's lead stewardess (Friederich ?- I could not read the label, she kept it under her jacket) decided to upgrade that couple seats by moving them into the Business Class."

Cons: "Flight was canceled with no prior notice and I am requesting a refund."

Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."

Pros: "Loved the business class upgrade"
Cons: "Lack of food choices even in business class"

Pros: "Nothing no communication for delayed flight lost luggage. Just lines everywhere to fill out forms with only 2 employees worst experience ever"
Cons: "No communication. Flight delayed no answers. Just long line to be put on a waiting list"

Pros: "leg room"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Good service."

Pros: "food remarkably good decent entertainment comfortable temperature on time, not waiting everything went as expected."
Cons: "sadly, airplane seats just aren't that comfortable. But that is universal and expected."

Pros: "Entertainment had great selection"
Cons: "Boarding was slow and chaotic. Food quality was very poor. Posted pics on Facebook of the old brown salad I got served. Talked to the crew about it and was advised to use the dressing to make it better!!! Still would have been rotten underneath. Was not offered a replacement. They ran out of chicken and only served pasta. No choice!!!"

Pros: "Great crew, very attentive. Excellent food and beverages! You don't get off of Lufthansa flight hungry! Good choice of entertainment. Lufthansa really knows how to take care of its customers on long-haul flights!"
Cons: "Online check-in is very difficult. told me that my request couldn't be completed, then when I got to the airport, they said "Oh, I see that you have already checked-in!""

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."

Cons: "The airline lost my suitcase and deliver it only 72 hours later... They refused to give me proper compensation for items that were broken..."

Pros: "The best airline ever! Super friendly crew and staff, great customer service and nice planes. Love KLM!"

Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"

Pros: "Everything perfect and arrive to destination on perfect time."
Cons: "All positive."

Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."

Pros: "Decent price for economy comfort seat, 4A."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 80 minutes and they did not informed until when I got to the Airport. I could have stayed more at home instead of the terminal. They have also changed the boarding gate.."

Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Old aircraft. Uncomfortable seats in economy. Entertainment screens old and almost impossible to watch - watched my iPhone! No mobile phone charger."

Cons: "Keep the temperature at a more reasonable level. Blankets + two layers of clothing was definitely not enough."

Pros: "Pleasant crew. Appropriate and efficiently served snack."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."

Pros: "Excellent crew, good food & movie selection."

Pros: "Just as I expected. And I made my last connection easily."

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

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: "The bed was comfortable. Entertainment selection and large TV screen was good. The KLM crew is amazing, as usual."
Cons: "Food quality was not so good."

Cons: "KLM was not prepared to get wheel chair passenger off plane. Cost me delay of 1 hour. I will never fly KLM again."

Pros: "Good beverage service."
Cons: "Over an hour delayj for departure."

Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."

Cons: "Larger meals."

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat but it’s only a 1 hour flight so not a big deal."

Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"

Pros: "Nice people and good service"
Cons: "Not much"

Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"

Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"

Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"

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: "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."

Pros: "Arrived early!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"

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: "Left ontime and service was excellent."

Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"

Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."

Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."

Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"

Pros: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."

Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"

Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."

Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."

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."

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."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."

Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Cons: "Nothing"

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!"

Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."

Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."

Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"

Pros: "captain was great."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"

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."

Cons: "I was almost forced to stow my luggage in the hold despite me telling the check-in people tjat I had my meds and cpap in the carryon. I spoke to multiple people. Not sensitive."

Pros: "The gentleman at the check out his name was Omar went over and above the call of duty for Customer Service me being an American he walked me through each step of using flybe via air France and paying for checking my bags and even the carry on luggage and getting me through security etc."

Pros: "The crew was excellent and surprisingly the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I think more attention should be paid to cleaning the plane and eeek, there was no liqueur in economy class. Music selection in entertainment should be wider too"

Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"

Cons: "the tray was broken and the water felt all over. the flight was 1 hr delayed. All of us stood the 1 hr waiting to know what's next. We could sit."

Cons: "Entertainment worked sporadically"

Pros: "Air. France usual"
Cons: "No lights working on plane. Couldn't read or do work WiFi wasn't working either"

Pros: "The crew ask some of us to help seating a family group together. No objection. Then they went out of their way to make the trip more enjoyable for us... even offering a drink of Champagne wine (the true one, not some substitute)... Departed almost on time, arrived a few minutes early..."

Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The snacks that were handed out prior to landing were not very good and it looked as though a lot of people in our section felt the same way. Also, there were a lot of empty seats in the comfort and premium sections, but non of our gold medallions were offered an upgrade."

Cons: "Surprised one flight that from what it looked to be, once flight took off a older couple came out of the cockpit are and took a seat in business class. I thought I had seen someone in civilian clothes setting in a area right behind the pilots chair. They did return to cockpit area near end of flight"

Pros: "cbvghjkl;"
Cons: "mmmm"

Cons: "WiFi"

Pros: "On time, staff was nice."
Cons: "Not many options and not even a glass of champagne. That’s a minimal requirement. No sparkling water. Just very limited"

Pros: "Food and entertainment was awesome"
Cons: "It's awfull to sleep. Very unconfortable."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."

Cons: "No space for legs. No food (just snacks). Very high temperature inside the aircraft. Flight delayed by 45 minutes."

Cons: "Long delays to go through security screening and then further delays as the plane was still being fueled at departure time."

Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work; in neighboring seat it could not be switched off when we wanted to sleep; sourly employees everywhere (re-booking counter an exception); food close not being edible and cold; I forgot my watch on when going through security in the Air France terminal; when I started to say "sorry" I was yelled at by the screener who said that she will do the talking; she sent me back through the scanner twice without my watch, then once more with the carry-on and made sure that I went to the end of a very long line to wait for another screening rather than having me just go through the scanner without my watch. Needless to say, there was nothing else suspicious about me once the watch was removed. Eager to exercise her power, the security person did not seem to consider that she slowed down a long line of people waiting to be screened. I should add that I am 73 yrs old grey haired female who has traveled a lot both for pleasure and business during my entire life, often to some difficult places and that I do not argue with or provoke those in power in a situation like this. The yelling and the sending me repeatedly through the scanner, which did not beep once the watch was removed, was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere else. The sending me to the very end of the line seemed outright spiteful. (I did miss the plane connection.)"

Pros: "Great service and food."
Cons: "Tv screen is resolution is to low. Hard to see details."

Pros: "Boarding this large plane went relatively quickly and orderly."
Cons: "Seats were tight and got a bit uncomfortable. This was a long flight. Could use a much better cushion."

Cons: "The food was the worst airline food I have ever been served. I could not eat it. This is very disappointing for an airline like AirFrance which usually serves very good meals."

Cons: "It is very difficult to get around CDG airport with a disabled person. There is no shuttle. By the time we got to check in, we were ten minutes late. They would not check us in, and we paid over $700 to change tickets to the next flight. When I complained, I was told to stop being rude or I would get no ticket at all. My mother is 94 years old and we did the best we could given the circumstance."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The food very good"
Cons: "First the plane was delayed because of a technical issue that I think they should check before The plane was crowded and old."

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "We got to the desk to check in and there was one person being served in front of us. He finished with him, turned and left the area through the dooor. No one came to help us for 15 minutes. Then they came out to answer the phone and said we were 10 minutes past the cut off and we could not fly."
Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked. Overall, horrible customer service. Never been treated so rudely by people in the airlines industry in my entire 42 years of flying!"

Pros: "Priority boarding with kids"
Cons: "Nothing special just like easyJet ir Rayanair"

Pros: "Arriving safely."
Cons: "We didn't get boarding passes for the second flight at EDI so we had to exit the secure area, get boarding passes, and go through security a second time for the same trip."

Pros: "Staff pleasant and courteous fine meal and beverages! Arrived ahead of schedule in Bucharest!! Overall a very pleasant experience!"

Pros: "I didn’t actually liked the entertainment"

Cons: "Little turbulence but overall it comes as usual so it was worth the flight"

Cons: "no vegeterian sandwiches very disappointed"

Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly. Plane was clean. And food was served quickly without the hassle of ordering from a menu and paying. And it was delicious. Best airline food I’ve had in a long time. The chocolate dessert was incredible. And a coffee to go with it. Made a three hour flight very pleasant."
Cons: "All airlines need to remove a row of seats and give everyone just a bit more legroom."

Pros: "Boarding & crew (inc ground staff & check-in) all good."
Cons: "Food not great - not all menu options available. Limited choice of drinks. Very small, low-resolution, seat-back screens with a luggish & outdated interface. Limited choice of movies."

Pros: "Seat comfort in business class Professional and friendly crew"
Cons: "Food not tasty Limited entertainment even in business class (such small and old screen style) Newspapers available to be much more diversified When is the WiFi going to be available?"

Pros: "Option to upgrade seat which I didn't take but might for outbound red eye flight in future."
Cons: "Faulty toilet meaning longer queues for the loo. Crew were a bit haphazard in serving food and my row was missed out for coffee after dinner."

Pros: "Always like Air France. They are in tune with keeping the traveler updated."
Cons: "Walked all over the terminal looking for signage for Croatia Airlines. Information services sent me to the right location, but it was marked Air France. I asked serval Air France employees for Croatia Air. None new that Air France was the CA carrier. Finally found one who bothered to look it up on her computer and low and behold, AF was the carrier!"

Cons: "Air France lost my luggage and they can't find it in the computer system."

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and polite, both beverages and an excellent lunch was offered."
Cons: "A delay was not ideal but nothing to worry about since the flight arrived on time."

Pros: "Chicako Párizs szuper , udvarias személyzet pontos érkezés."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours"

Pros: "It was clean The crew was very kind Food was very good Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats were exceedingly close Screens for entertainment were small and game controls were difficult to use"

Cons: "Food and coffee were cold. Service on AF is getting worse."

Pros: "It was as expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit tedious because we had to first board a bus to take us to the airplane."

Pros: "cookies were great"
Cons: "we paid for two seats together (one aisle and one middle) an exit row with extra legroom from paris to LA. but when we got to Prague they had one of us in the middle seat in the exit row and the other in a completely different part of the plane, also a middle row. The folks in Prague couldn't fix this, they moved one ticket to a different exit row, not together, different part of the plane. In Paris, but ONLY after I located my receipt on my phone, they moved us to the seats we had paid for."

Pros: "Same as above, the crew was very friendly and the food was great."
Cons: "Seating was cramped and uncomfortable for a tall person."

Pros: "Pilot had technical expertise and landed well. Crew was polite to passengers on red eye by keeping it quiet and dim."

Cons: "On time departure. A comfortable seat."

Pros: "The Rio de Janeiro international airport is very difficult to traverse. However, the airport staff was very helpful in directing me several times to the correct location."
Cons: "United needs a check-in kiosk located between the domestic arrivals section and the international connection hallway just before security. I had to walk to the complete length of the airport and back again, just to check-in. Other airlines, such as Delta, have a kiosk located just before the security entrance. The cabin temperature was absolutely freezing during the flight, and I am usually hot."

Pros: "I had absolutely no complaints about this trip"

Pros: "No entertainment. Not working No internet. Crewfelt like they were forced to be “nice”."

Cons: "Not having videos on plane in seat sucked! Mediocre over priced Food"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful."

Cons: "We left late because they were waiting for people from another flight that got canceled to transfer to our flight, and even with the delay, one of my bags got lost. I was the third person to check in for the flight, so I'm not sure how that happened."

Cons: "Airplane was super cold. No extra blankets. Passengers freezing. Impossible to sleep."

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "No compensation, no manager available because they were dealing with the same issue at another gate. Where is the customer service?"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Landing was not smooth"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Everything went smooth for being in coach."

Pros: "Fast and friendly staff from check in to landing. Southern folk don’t rush you and actually listen to consumers concerns."
Cons: "None...nice, short flight"

Cons: "Poor food for the price"

Cons: "It took a very long time and multiple stops to get to my destination which should not have taken so long. Also it was extremely expensive for such a difficult itenerary to go from SJU to PVD."

Pros: "Friendly efficient staff with good service and comfortable jet."
Cons: "Waffle snacks taste good but are very crumbly and make a mess. Stating "free wifi" is misleading as you have to pay for internet access."

Pros: "Crew was great. Food was tasty (croissant, etc), great touch and really appreciated the service and attitude of the crew especially the lady in first class. She could not do enough to please the passengers. A+"
Cons: "Took a long time for the ramp crew to get ramp to plane door (3-4 minutes) ??? C-"

Pros: "complimentary water and snacks while waiting in line to board delayed flight"
Cons: "Flight delay due to late arrival of flight crew. Should have backup flight attendants for these situations, esp. at a large airport like SFO. Getting in at 2:30 am made for a miserable trip. Should have offered complimentary dinner to everyone when there is that much of a delay."

Pros: "Nice flight crew served Illy coffee as a delightful beverage surprise Overnight flight was smooth and restful On-time departure and early arrival exceeded our expectations"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The flight landed earlier than expected."
Cons: "Flight crew skipped our row when serving drinks. Never had that happen before. Gave us a puny snack with a of couple pretzels in it!"

Pros: "I enjoyed the assistance, the food and the movies"
Cons: "I liked every single bit of my experience."

Cons: "We star boarding 20 min late, after that the airplane was totally full i was separated from my family"

Cons: "Flight was canceled. Rescheduled on next morning on economy class even though the original tickets booked for business class. No hotel, food voucher, etc. were provided blamed on the weather condition even though the bad weather was 1-2 days ago, and on the day of departure it was air traffic control problems which was stated in cancellation email."

Pros: "Flight attendants very nice"
Cons: "No offer to purchase snacks"

Pros: "crew helped me get on flight from standby list and were especially helpful at gate"

Cons: "Crew members were not friendly. There was no in-flight entertainment available, and no snacks that were complimentary."

Cons: "3 hour delay."

Pros: "The low cost of fare. The ease of ticket purchase thru kayak. Convenient e-mail services. United Airlines service was courteous and very handicap friendly."

Pros: "Cold in hallway for manditory carry on check & anxious that I may not make next flight, . Newark to Ft. Myers"

Cons: "Our plane was United, so I don't think this reflects on Lufthansa, but rather United. The plane entertainment was extremely outdated and there was not enough room in the overhead containers for everyone's carry-ons. This problem made boarding a very long and aggrevating process."

Pros: "Excellent!"

Cons: "Gate attendant had a snide attitude and made a joke about the possibility that a Samsung 7 could cause an explosion in flight over the intercom. Very unprofessional."

Pros: "Staff are nice and helpful."
Cons: "Everything is an additional cost! Food, tv, beverages and that is not how it is anywhere else unless you are on a budget airline or flight which this was not."

Pros: "Nos dieron las gracias por volar con esta empresa y dijieron hacer a de las conexiones usu este era nuestro destinó final nos dieron la bienvenida a casa"

Pros: "The flight was cancelled three times. Understanding that can happen, it's the fact that United didn't do anything to make everyone relaxed about having the flight delayed. The crew and pilots were very understanding and relayed reasons for delay while ON the plane. The air on the plane was very cold."

Pros: "Cabin crew were fantastic"

Pros: "Everything was great. Thank you."

Pros: "Always the service is above and beyond"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "The attendants were courteous, helpful and pleasant. Good ride and when getting off, this was the first plane ride where people didn't go crazy rushing to get off. I will use this airline again!"

Pros: "Delhi airport was good, they do with respect"
