Crew were not helpful to the point of being rude. Too many delays and issues for such a short flight. Swiss Air is good in Europe but not in the Caribbean.

It was an excellent service.

They lost all of our luggage, business class was not comfortable, food was mediocre

Emirates service is much better

I miss the old swiss air this new airline is not the greatest.I am swiss travel back and forth between the us and Switzerland ten times a year and I really think swiss is the bare bones of airlines thank you

I was seated near a big gentleman and being a big guy it was quite uncomfortable during the entire trip. The service was excellent by the crew

Swiss shouldn't operate another second until they have their customer service figured out. You can't reach anyone at the company. 0 accommodations for you in case you need to make changes.

Clean cabin and lavatories. Crew friendly, attentive and helpful.

Cons: "The plane waited 40 minutes for delayed connecting flights to arrive. It's great for some passengers because they don't miss the transatlantic flight, but it causes others to miss their connections on the other end. It added to very stressful deplaning."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Flight was late"
Cons: "The plane was SO hot and stuffy. It was an overnight flight, so they passed out blankets—but it was so hot no one used them. The air was stale, to the point of feeling claustrophobic."
Cons: "entertainment sound"
Pros: "Awesome business class seat, or rather throne"
Cons: "Limited selection of movies"
Pros: "Short flight, no entertainment. They still offer free snacks on short flights, a plus, but it was an almost frozen cheese sandwich. A Little bag of pretzels would be better. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding is confusing. Bad lines, unorganized, and people pushing. They should probably come up with a better system."
Cons: "Food selection was a bit short"
Pros: "The stewardesses were absolutely amazing, asking/ offering beverages in between main meals t/ out the whole flight! They were just doing their job above and beyond! Wonderful crew especially the girls in the section 30’s on the side FGJK, THANK YOU SO MUCH! YOU WERE AMAZING!"
Cons: "I’m a small person & your seating is cramped & uncomfortable!"
Cons: "Seat would not recline. Long fight cramped 27B"
Pros: "The crew , comfort"
Cons: "The long delay on take off (4 hours +) in Zurich"
Pros: "Food was tasty. Crew was very good."
Cons: "Legroom was horrible, and I’m 5’-7”! Ancient entertainment units."
Cons: "I had paid a little extra to have a seat in the back of the plane going to Greece and returning also. I was under the assumption the extra charge would give me a seat with only one extra person next to me. On both flights to and from JFK I was seated in a row with 3 seats and not the last row as promised. Just wondering if a refund for the extra charge would be possible."
Cons: "Almost missed my third plane, too."
Pros: "Food and crew were great."
Cons: "Economy is tight."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and re-booked today. We’re so frustrated and inconvenience us. Very stressful! Swiss Air notification in email was sent short of notice."

Pros: "Good film selection -which unfortunately I couldn’t watch. To be fair I got a 50 CHF discount for my next flight with Swiss."

Cons: "Not on time at all. Toooooo late boarding"
Pros: "Excellent, super-friendly crew, excellent meal"
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight kept time. Safe trip. Thank you."
Cons: "The on board duty free did not have ample change, so I had to forfeit $3 in change.. On top of that they secrectly charged $10 extra on my card after my flight! I already got the ticket and paid extra luggage- what is the extra charge for?? The lady at extra luggage tried to overcharge me as well! Had to refer her to your website! I need this excess charges reversed. I demand an explanation!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, air crew was friendly, helpful and patient. The food was actually really quite good. Entertainment kept my little ones occupied and seated."

Pros: "The staff was very attentive."

Pros: "Attentive crew offwring water frequentlyflight"
Cons: "Flifght was far from full and I am small.so the very tight seat configuration was not a problem."

Pros: "Great flight. Boarding, departure and arrival on time. Excellent flight attendants."
Pros: "The plane is beautiful, comfortable and clean. The crew is happy and kind. The food is great! Overall my favorite Airlines as of my recent two flights."
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: "Comfy, loved the individual Tvs and food was great!"
Cons: "The plane was old and the bathroom was really dirty"
Pros: "At Montreal I was made to go through the customs, exit the airport, get the boarding pass, go through security check again. I was subjected to unnecessary hassle as Air Canada did not issue me boarding pass for the section of Motreal to Zurich at Los Angeles airport. Had I known that I have to come out of the airport, I would not have bought this ticket. Hopefully same ordeal is not repeated while returning from Zurich to Los Angeles via Montreal on June 30, 2016. There was a long queque at Montreal to board the place as it was not organized in zone wise."

Snacks were minimal even in Comfort+

I had too many issues with entertainment system.

the crew and actual flight was great. i appreciate the puffy headrests with folding edges. but we have been sitting on the ground LAX for 2 hours now waiting to be let off at the gate. the water in the bathrooms has been dumped so we have to use sanitizer, and it’s hot in here, and there are no vegan snacks and barely any water. this is insane.

The flight probably was alright, it's just that was unable to cancel /change my plans on the app, nothing easy about it. 1st time app user- negative experience

Simple and easy

Cons: "Other travellers where rude"
Pros: "this is the airline"
Pros: "Boarded in good time, friendly crew, flight was comfortable, entertainment was good - and most importantly, landed on time!"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed while waiting for Delta agents to come and assist people off of the plane."
Pros: "Great experience!"
Pros: "The flight attendees were nice and attentive. The entertainment was great."
Cons: "The boarding crew was less than pleasant and had an attitude. They changed my assigned seat and when I asked why, they rushed me to board offering no explanation except “your seat is no longer available”."
Cons: "Let was a typical flight. About all you can hope for is that it is on time. That makes it excellent."
Cons: "Great flight. On time and friendly staff."
Pros: "Amazing crew, on time, decent coffee, plenty of drinks"
Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."
Pros: "All needs were met."
Cons: "There was a fire truck with lights going on the run way when we arrived. Wasn’t concerned because the crew didn’t seem concerned but would have also liked to have been told to not be concerned due to other passengers worrying. But you can’t know everything so no big deal"
Cons: "Boarding was like a cattle call....my headrest was broken so couldn’t sleep upright but face down....seemed like a plane that large would have more bathrooms"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Very small plane"
Pros: "Food Getting moved to the exit row for the extra leg room"
Cons: "Didn’t like having to wait so long to book my seat and ended up on the back row the worst seats on the plane"
Pros: "Didn’t major it on the flight. Sleeping in Atlanta. Not the house I paid for in totrtola."
Cons: "Terrible planning. Didn’t have enough fuel to circle. Took a stupid path. 10 minutes cost me a day."
Pros: "I was booked for the late flight. There was an earlier flight with space. But I had to pay $200/seat to get to the earlier flight. WHY? Why make a family of 5 way several more hours? Why can't you be like Southwest?"
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Pros: "Crew was very good I would say that 5"
Cons: "This Delta flight did not have seat back screens to watch in flight entertainment. You needed to use your smartphone or tablet keeping in mind Amazon tablets won’t work. You needed to go to delta website and choose what want to watch the you needed to have Gogo Flight entertainment app already on smartphone and then would work. Not easy even for me a vivid user of tablets and smartphones. The seats had miniumal room available between seats it felt like I am on 5’qq so couldn’t imagine anyone taller that comfortable unless get first class. I even upgraded for “comfort” section which gave you a few inches extra. And wdith of chair me being a 36 waist was a little squeezed in. Crew was very good tho I will say that. But I laways fly JetBlue or Virgin America, or Alaskan Air for reason of more comfort and lower prices ticket but this time on flight close to my destination was Delta which I Flew for free, I would much rather buy ticket on the three others I fly if could have."
Cons: "The two hour delay"
Pros: "Seats and service."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating"
Pros: "The flight was ontime, boarding was okay. Disembarking seemed a little slow."
Cons: "Seats have gotten narrower and closer together and it was a new plane which seemed to have more slope to the wall which meant even less room in the window seat. Too warm in the plane"
Pros: "All the staff are sincere in serving. It must be a direct result of the great management at the top. If the employees were unhappy and rude that also would be a direct reflection of the management. I use the same flight often and let the staff know I appreciate them."
Cons: "Snacks are small, but delicious cookies."
Pros: "My comfort zone seat"
Pros: "Left on time, no hassles at boarding. We were in premium economy and seating was comfortable for both of us, not-too-tall people. FA were quite friendly."
Cons: "One bathroom wouldn't flush, which was a problem with limited facilities and a full flight."
Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Cons: "Delay"
Cons: "Kids yelling"
Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."
Cons: "Weather delay"
Cons: "Why can't all the Delta gates be near each other. My connecting flight was very far."
Cons: "Not knowing where our seat was until the very last was disconcerting. My wife and I did not get to sit together"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled after waiting in the airport all day! I missed my conference on Thursday and Friday morning because I had to rent a car and drive! They did not seem concerned at all sbout money that was lost such as hotel, tickets for conferences and gas. All was said is the weather was bad snd we will get you out soon as we can."
Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"
Pros: "First class stewardess was excellent."
Cons: "Seats too close - I'm not that tall and my knees were jammed against the seat in front of me."
Cons: "With only one gate attendant, boarding was slow and unorganized."

Way-finding to my connecting flight in Munich was horrible. I asked directions and was directed out through security and had to clear back through to get to my next flight, so I missed it and had to book a new flight hours later.

My flight was cancelled less than 12 hours prior to departure, and I was bumped onto a vastly less convenient itinerary a day later, cutting into my trip

Space was very poor and earphones awful. Mixed on staff, some good, some bad!

Cons: "All god nice flight crew helpful. A well organized flight just what you would expect from a German airline"
Cons: "The entertainment did not work good the entire flight"
Cons: "Beef main course overcooked and dry."
Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."
Cons: "Mejorar las oferta de películas abordo"
Pros: "The crew was great! I was much more comfortable this trans-Atlantic flight coming home than when I flew over beginning my trip. The hot towels are always a special treat and the wide selection of free beverages. Thank you Lufthansa!"
Cons: "It was not noted that I had a gluten allergy even though I had requested special meals online. I had to ask the flight attendants during the first meal to bring me that option. After that, all was great! My personal entertainment screen was not working properly for about an hour in to my flight."
Pros: "Really cheerful and friendly crew."
Cons: "They changed my seat just before boarding. Front lavatories are not usable by passengers behind the curtain."
Cons: "The airline cancelled my ticket because they said I was not on my earlier flight two weeks prior. This was absolutely not true. I had taken the flight and also checked bags. For an airline to cancel someones tickets and not notify them is highly unethical."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seats are v comfortable"
Cons: "I cant really think of anything"
Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."
Pros: "The red wine was good and the crew made sure that we were well hydrated. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "The quality of the meals was poor - tasteless food, possibly loaded with preservatives."
Pros: "Very nice flight, the food was super delicious and the crew very professional"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Same as above same as a bove"
Cons: "Same as above"
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: "Excellent service and food"
Pros: "Getting a text alert so I didn't waste my time going to the airport"
Cons: "The fact that Sunday morning my flight was cancelled Saturday night with no apparent reason or explanation given."
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The usual flight discomfort, but the seat in front of me was broke. The person in it struggled to stay out of my lap, which I appreciated. The connecting flight had a non-functional screen and the reading light broke and flew across the cabin."
Pros: "I can say with confidence; there was nothing that was good. Wait, the bathrooms were nice."
Cons: "The food was horrible, the staff was rude, my flight was delayed 4 and a half hours, the plane was so hot I felt like I was going to pass out, the seats are way too small and too close to each other."
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Pros: "On time and good service"
Cons: "the flight info was off"
Pros: "Crew is very nice"
Cons: "Overcrowded and late flight"
Cons: "Boarding process was longer than expected. Seat assigment from check in was not honored at the gate. FA asked me to switch seat only to favor passenger from Germany."
Pros: "Staff was consistently professional, courteous, and good-natured. The seats were fairly comfortable for economy. The food was perfectly fine. Movie selection was very good. Overall very comfortable flight that left and arrived on time!"
Pros: "On all my flights everything was on time and ready to go. Crew was super helpful and friendly. Ready great service and constant visual of crew for us if we needed them. Was not expecting to be fed sooo much on my flights which was awesome! Seats were comfortable, pillow and blanket were a nice accommodation as well! The entertainment was awesome - made 8 hours quickly disappear! Will definitely fly with Lufthansa again when I go overseas!"
Pros: "Clean plan, attentive attendants, flight was delayed 15 minutes but notified us promptly."
Pros: "Wonderful flight crew. Quiet, orderly. Food good, plenty drinks."
Cons: "I an that person who instantly reclines their seat all the way in front of me. Ugh. Not Lufthansa's fault!"
Pros: "Amazing service."
Pros: "Lots of movies to choose from. Meal was great. I liked that the cabin crew gave us plenty of water & choice of fruit juices"
Cons: "All was great."
Pros: "The staff on board had the same view on the "comfort" on board and told us, that even her husband tries to avoid Lufthansa if possible."
Cons: "Everything on board the economy class is on Ryanair level. It is nearly not possible for me (1,89 meters) to have a comfortable flight in these seats. We will try to avoid Lufthansa as often as possible in the future (I`ve had a senator level in earlier times and things changed massively!)"
Pros: "Food was great, as was entertainment interface on tv."
Pros: "The food and beverage options are always good when flying international. Having the restrooms located below the passenger deck is definitely an improvement when considering overall traveling comfort, specifically for the people that are seated next to the restrooms."
Cons: "There are way too many announcements that interrupt the viewing and listening of entertainment. In lieu of announcing redundant information about customs, the weather, arrival time, safety, etc., why not offer that as information that can be provided on the screen and in the primary language of the listener so everyone isn't forced to listen to the same lengthy message twice? I'm sure the Lufthansa Customer Service Dept. has and is considering other alternatives, I'm just reiterating the obvious."
Pros: "on time."
Cons: "was too congested"
Cons: "Chairs are not comfortable at all so small for a long trip"
Pros: "The flight staff was excellent!"
Cons: "Pilot strike caused much distress in Frankfort. The best that could be done was a layover extended by 5 hours and a diversion to Luxembourg. The final leg of the trip was further delayed an extra hour due to mechanical difficulties in Luxembourg."
Cons: "I booked through Kiwi.com and they couldn't handle my special food request (kosher meal). Somehow it didn't reach Lufthanza at all. As a result I had nothing to eat during the entire transatlantic flight."
Pros: "Excellent airplane, very comfortable."
Cons: "Landed very late in Chicago and lost our connection to home. Had to spend the night to catch another flight home in the morning."
Cons: "2 hours late"
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and accommodating"
Cons: "Most of the announcements were hard to hear and understand"
Pros: "Everything worked like an expensive Swiss watch! Employees were polite, friendly, and very helpful! I will fly with Lufthansa again and again!!!"
Pros: "Nice courageous service"
Cons: "I didn't find any dislike"
Cons: "Boarding three planes to three different destinations from the same gate is very confusing."
Pros: "The wifi entertainment option is a bad idea. It consumes device battery and there is no USB plug."
Cons: "Our flight from SFO to Frankfurt was cancelled and we were re-booked on a very bad itinerary."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding, friendly and helpful. The entertainment options were great with lots of current movie and tv listings. the food was pretty good. We received two meals and frequent beverage service. The seats were pretty comfortable, though when the seat in front of you reclined the space was greatly reduced."
Cons: "We had to pay to get seat assignments. it wasn't cheap and then they changed the seats we'd chosen to seats at the very back of the plane. The boarding process is chaotic, at least compared to American practices."
Pros: "Landing was very smooth! Loved being able to go downstairs to baths b/c it was a chance to move!"
Cons: "AC was broken for the first 30-45min. It was quite hot with all of the people stuck on the plane. Luckily, the pilot was able to use the plane's engines to create AC."

The boarding crew was rude, everything was disorganized with lack of information.

Mejor el servicio a los dominicanos

I do not know how, but, rude crew and counter personnel is here, rest of things looks pretty standard without any difference with other airlines, that was not the case in the past

The flight that you gave us, JQ7 from Melbourne did not exist. Therefore we had to stay in Melbourne for another 24 hours and find another new route and flights to return to Heathrow. All a strain and stress. Your service to us for the return journey useless. So far, I have not found that you have corrected any of your failings and therefore it could also happen again to others tomorrow, next week, or next month. The return journey was a total disaster.

Okay

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: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Pros: "good service"
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."

Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"

Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."
Pros: "Even for this short flight, drinks and sandwich was provided staff were efficient and friendly"
Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Pros: "Nice new Boeing 787, lots of space."
Cons: "Seat could use a bit more cushion, a bit thin for a long haul service. Also, had to take a bus to the aircraft which slowed the boarding."

The bathroom wasn’t super clean

Cons: "The food was not as usual."
Pros: "Clean plane , good crew ,"
Cons: "they didn't load my baggage from flight 1 to 2"
Pros: "Upgrade was easy! Crew was beyond exceptionable! Can’t wait to fly again, guys!"
Pros: "The seat was really comfortable and I was able to sleep the whole flight with no disturbance"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Pros: "rien"
Cons: "tout est à revoir !"
Cons: "I dint like the way you guys sold me the tickets with only one bag to check in with when I went to the airport I’ve got to pay 58 pounds extra I was not happy with you guys so next time you have to tell your customers before they buy the tickets that’ it’s one bag check"
Pros: "Spacious business class seats, excellent meals"
Cons: "Lack of ventilation in cabin, and staff refusal to turn heaters down (in September), very limited entertainment options."
Cons: "Thé qualité officielle the images"
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Cons: "We didn’t travel to Detroit... we were re-routed 3 times and our luggage is lost, some really helpful ppl along the way (thankfully) and some really crummy ppl too... no in between... still not to our destination"
Pros: "Great food and friendly crew."
Cons: "Seatback system was old and not very functional."
Pros: "Crew great."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Food could be better, or at least be provided an option to purchase an upgraded meal. Also, insufficient amount of drinking water provided to passengers."
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: "Food and wine. Entertainment."
Cons: "Sat closer to water closet. Maybe more air freshener in there."
Pros: "Crew was awesome!!"
Cons: "I paid extra for the seat, but there was a metal box under the seat in front of me that curtailed my ability to stow my carry bag, and my leg room. I am very diappointed that I paid above the normal seat charge as if there was a premium to this seat, but in reality it was a sb par seat."
Cons: "Air conditioning too cold. Wasn't offered an evening meal. My luggage went missing and I'm still waiting for it to be delivered."
Cons: "There was no entertainment and there was a lot of annoyed passengers and flight attendants"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the food was excellent."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food could have been much better in comparison with other airlines."
Cons: "I didn't get to board, ended up spending $2,400.00 over and above the $980.00 that I spent booking the initial ticket. I was not informed when I booked the ticket that when you transit through 2 schengen countries, you need a transit document. I was informed about it at then airport. Not only did I miss my flight, I had to book for the next day at a outrageous price. SUPER BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE...BOTH KAYAK and PRICELINE. Will never recommend you guys to anyone."
Pros: "I was given a great seat and the food was OK- not the Air France food of 5 years ago but still good"
Cons: "I didn't really use the in flight entertainment - the usual movies, tv etc"
Pros: "Just a routine flight but done with perfect execution."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."
Cons: "I flew out on KLM on what felt like a new plane. Amazing service, seat, temperature, entertainment and food. In stark comparison Air France’s plane was old, too hot, poor entertainment choices and system and average food which for the French was surprising!"
Pros: "The crew worked hard, but the food was below the French standards."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours and the passengers spent this time in the cabin without a/c."
Cons: "Told us to get in line for boarding and review our tickets and then made us stand there for 75 minutes before boarding."
Pros: "The food was okay and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "My seat and several others around me were broken so that they would fall all the way back if we leaned back at all. The entertainment system kept crashing and forgetting what shows everyone on board we’re watching. There were no air vents to control. The games crashed constantly. The usb hubs didn’t work."
Pros: "If the flight would have leave in time we would receive our luggage in time"
Pros: "Very good male crew member. Pilot genuinely apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "After running due to a 1 hr 10 min change over between flights boarding didn't prioritise anyone but I got on fine. Only to be told at the departure time that there was a problem with the baggage hold and we were delayed. In total 50 minutes late leaving. Breakfast a simple brioche with nothing to add to it."
Pros: "It was quick, very good space in premium economy. Good and friendly service. The food was better than expected"
Cons: "The crew did not announce the score of soccer cup semi final between Belgium and France"
Cons: "Screen broke half way through flight. Food was poor"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "great seat, good food and drink, pleasant staff, efficient boarding and exit."
Cons: "no complaints"
Cons: "Initially the flight from Lima was delayed for almost 1:30 and then we lost this connection then Airfrance rebooking to SAS they tell us to take all our luggage’s and check in again it’s was awful and really bad from then walk and spend time we suppose to be quite at home ... the worst was in SAS have ano system and for 1.5 kilos extras you might pay 33€ so after long day and wait, running everywhere with all my staff I see to eat a 11€ menu at the airport with not more explanation from Airfrance .. really bad and worst services.."
Pros: "The inflight service"
Cons: "The 3 hours delay"
Pros: "Whenever I travel air France I get a reminder of what customer service looks like on a flight. Incredible crew, great experience"
Cons: "Not checking my carry on weight at check in then letting me walk all the way to security to then check my bag and tell me to go back to check in then the counter is closed and they tell me it's too late and that I need to get ride of my things so that my bag is under weight and barely making the flight"
Pros: "Good service all around, personnel pleasant"
Cons: "Very difficult to find where to register with the flight but this is more tied to the way things are run by the airport"
Pros: "The crew is great, with their typical slightly humourous and casual French attitude. Great collection of international quality movies."
Cons: "Average and disappointing sitting space. The vegan lacto-ovo meal is disappointing."
Cons: "Business Passngers have to wait in the same bus to board the flight what is the point then...."
Pros: "I liked the way a fligh attandant treated me and another two passengers. At the end of the flight he gave us a cup of strawberries for all. The food was delicious specially that pasta, it was yummy."
Cons: "TV was too slow."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane late departing allegedly because of cleaning the plane, but why was the cleaning done that late? Also, ground crew remarkably uninformed about what was going on in the plane. Poor communication between plane and ground crew. No explanation from pilot as to continuing reason for delay even after we boarded. Departure time, 1.00 pm, boarded at 1.10, actual departure time 1.45, causing me to almost miss my connection and definitely causing my bags to miss the connection."
Pros: "Loved the lovely food and wine from Air France, they even serve fresh french bread with camembert, ice cream, champagne (in economy) and brandy with your coffee!"
Cons: "The cabin on the 777-200 was far too hot (about 25c) and with no individual air vent I found this unbearable on a 12 hour flight. And despite the flight taking place entirely during daylight hours and leaving at 10:30 am, inexplicably we were made to all pull our blinds down and the lights went off after a couple of hours - in the middle of the day and for about 8 hours! So although I had paid for a window seat there was nothing to see apart from the window shade. As it was the middle of the day I could not go to sleep, the person in front of me reclined fully so for me the flight was a hot, claustropobic, dark hell. An utterly miserable experience. I felt like I was going mad, trapped in my own little cell."
Pros: "Movie selection was awesome! Food was good too."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "One of the engine was smoking just as we took off. This should have been checked beforehand that it was working correctly. The pilot missed the first landing, was going too fast and had to turn around. We circled the London eye 3 times. When we were actually landing it was extremely bumpy and on the way down the plane was tilting back and forth a lot. They were going too fast when we landed as well, I have never been in a plane that has landed so poorly, and I have travelled a lot and used many different airlines. It was worse than any budget airline I've been on. As we were driving back to the terminal, the pilot stopped short for some reason. Things were not explained clearly. I will not be flying with airfrance again and will be sure to spread the word of this awful experience."
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: "Clean plane, efficient crew, food OK. Boarding was organized"
Cons: "No entertainment and no power plug to charge devices."
