I had to pay $75 for my luggage when I thought one piece was included in the ticket. Now I suppose I will have to do the same on my return. Disappointed
First time traveling with Swiss abroad…. They set the standard so high, I will certainly book them again next time! A+ hospitality across the board…. So impressed with their professionalism and customer service. Highly, highly recommend! Jill Bolger

Cons: "I could have used USB charging station."
Cons: "Arrive on time Zurich"
Cons: "Temperature was very hot"
Cons: "The boarding by groups could improve the process"
Pros: "Crew was lovely, patient with all us skiers returning from the slopes. The food was EXCELLENT- for airline food. And I was in economy."
Cons: "The Entertainment tech was not smooth, had difficulty getting it to function and likely annoyed the person in front of me with all my tapping."
Cons: "I asked the Chinese flight attendant in economy to please ask the man in front of me to put his seat up since the captain and purser had already asked us to do so in three languages The man in front of me refused to do so. She said she was going to start at the front of the plane and let him leave his seat back making it difficult to see my tv monitor. I thought that she should’ve said that it was time to put your seat up. It was frustrating that she didn’t support me and the request of the captain. Your seats are very uncomfortable upright when the person in front of you has their seat back."
Cons: "Having no entertainment in the flight"
Pros: "plane and crew were fine. Didn’t use any entertainment."
Cons: "checked baggage fee at airport exorbitant."
Pros: "Unexpected food/snacks that were provided.Good crew and the plane was on time."
Cons: "Poor boarding process. Plane change caused poor seat selection after they changed the seats that we paid extra for. Very little leg room for an overseas flight."
Pros: "The Plane was modern, they had food / drinks for us, and overall the flight experience was excellent."
Cons: "Extremely crowded no place to wait, Split Airport has too many planes coming in/out and not much space for passengers."

Pros: "Never made connection so now 1 day late."
Pros: "upgrade to business class"
Cons: "the flight was delayed, so I have arrivede later and was told that I should have been there for the original time..."
Pros: "We were about on time"
Cons: "No power outlet, cramped due to passenger reclined fully also made using entertainment screen impossible."
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: "Stewards were friendly; snacks were good"
Cons: "It was very late, with us on it."
Cons: "I have just had the most unpleasant experience with Swiss Air and feel that anyone on FB should be very careful when dealing with this airline. I am a Gold Member of Star Alliance for more than 20 years and have flown dozens of times on Swiss and would expect courtesy and consideration in return for my loyalty to their airline. Their flight from Hong Kong to Zurich leaves at 00:15. I mistakenly booked this for Nov 9th instead of the intended late evening of the 9th which then turns out to be Nov 10th. When I discovered my error, I called Swiss at least six times to explain my error and ask if my son could stand by for the same flight on the 10th or even apply the amount to rebook the same flight the next day. ZERO flexibility or consideration. Missed flight, lose entire value. Start from scratch. Astonished that an airline that claims to be serving their customers would treat me this way. I travel through Europe at least 6-10 times a year from Asia. I will now route through Frankfurt, Munich, Paris, London, Vienna, Instanbul or even Moscow before ever going through Zurich again. I encourage anyone making travel plans to be very careful when considering flights with Swiss Airlines. Perhaps this treatment of a loyal customer explains why they went through bankruptcy already once."
Pros: "on time and got us there on time."
Cons: "untrained staff waking people up no flexibility with ordering GF dinner late"
Pros: "The next best thing to the hard-working and kind crew was the lighting design. Meals were OK, and I was delighted that the vegan meals I ordered for my travel companion were right there as ordered. Not a common occurrence of late, I’m afraid, so I congratulate Swiss one getting this one right."
Cons: "Legroom is non-existent. This was by far the most uncomfortable aircraft I have ever flown on, with the possible exception of an Ilyushin 62 operated by Tarom in 1983. I felt bad for the man in front of me, with my knees in his back. That is, until he reclined his seat and put my video screen in my face. Not much to watch anyway, but it was impossible to lean forward at all. Boarding at JFK was rather chaotic."
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS AWESOME BEFORE THE PLANE EVEN TOOK OFF!! My flights somehow got real messed up and everything down to my luggage had to be input manually. I wasn't sure if it was going to make it with me to the final destination. But it did! The head rest blew me away just as i sat. I love to know I can fall asleep and not have neck problems. And everything from the movies to the service to the food was great! My first international yet BEST experience in economy class was all worth it!"
Pros: "Crew was professional and attentive. 55 minute flight so food was ice cream, beverages, and a piece of Swiss chocolate. Plane's entertainment system in my section did not work. I had to check my carry-on!"
Cons: "All of the above with the exception of crew & food comment."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and crew was second to none. They were very attentive and courteous."
Pros: "Airline services and great time scheduling"
Cons: "Upon arriving to Chicago airport the Chicago airport couldn't get passengers off the plane due to mechanical issue"
Pros: "The chocolate"
Cons: "No outlet for charging electronics. No free checked luggage. My carry on (of usual size) was deemed a bit too big so I was forced to check it in."
Cons: "The flight was late and I almost lost my connecting flight."
Pros: "Over all I enjoyed flying with Swiss over the past 40 years. This was a first time my experience was not to my expectation."
Pros: "Good service, space for people and luggage"
Cons: "Less than great food, but everyone else is the same"
Cons: "The seats are too close together front to back. It's torture if you are six feet tall and the person in front of you put the seat in the back position for 8 hours."
Pros: "A swiss machine..."
Cons: "the smell someone left in the bathroom before me."
Pros: "Crew were perfect food was fine"
Cons: "Seat was terrible. 44g is one of the worst seat ever. No place for the my legs..."
Pros: "Great flying with Swiss!"
Cons: "seats were a bit tight! otherwise, great!"
Pros: "At list 2 attendants were extremely not polite . Air condition was turned on 2 minutes before landing . To collect food plates from passengers took more then 2 hours . When passengers asked attendants, to evaluate when it going to happen the answer was very rude ״ you should fly business in case you want it faster " . It was a night flight and it took 3 hours to turn off the lights . One of the girls attendants told me that I have too many hand handbags with me , only 1 piece allowed . I was with 3 pieces but we were 3 persons my wife and my Childe . I was trying to explain her, but she was unable to listen . It is not Swiss I know , I like to flight Swiss , but this flight was extremely disappointing .It was many confusions with other passengers as well. wrong meals , wrong seats , no air condition, ... the flight was a nightmare"
Cons: "In this flight nothing , one of the worst I have ever had ."
Pros: "I was extremely pleased with everything about my SWISS flight. I have family in Switzerland and have flown 8 times in the last 5 years. This was by far my best flight."
Pros: "Very nice flight back home! Comfortable seats (Great receline - almost too much for your neighbors), great food, lots of entertainment, etc. Flight attendants were nice. They left snacks, water, juice and soda out in the galley if you were in the mood for something. Bathrooms were clean. Overall I rate this flight a 9/10."
Cons: "The seat reclining in front of you made it very hard to get out of your seat and into the aisle without major clumsiness and disturbing your fellow passengers. Also the headphone jack has the old fashioned 2 prong. So you can't use your own headphones without an adapter if you only want to listen out of one ear the whole time."
Cons: "Late departure and arrival. No leg room in seats. Entire airline uses the cattle car approach. Would not fly with them again or recommend them to friends."
Pros: "Friendly and attentive. The check-in person was willing to check to see that I had a reclining seat. Friendly and accommodating attendants good wine offered in economy, water offered several times during the 9:30 hour flight. Pilots changed Flt altitude to accommodate for turbulence."
Cons: "Very little not to like on this flight."
Pros: "Aircraft was clean and spacious with ample leg room."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Timing of delivery could have been better balanced."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and efiicient."
Cons: "Only negative was not related to the flight. I had a difficult time on the website getting checked in ahead of time."
Cons: "The flight was delayed that made the connection very tough."

Pros: "Seats extremely tight."
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "Too exhausted from the long flight. But really wanted to say - Never flying them again after my itinerary is completed. They have just lost any revenue they would ever have gained from me in the future."
Pros: "fantastic food test"
Cons: "announcements in Turkish is interrupted your screen in front of every passenger and you have to listen to it even if you have no idea of what they taking about because it will block everything your are doing .. The solution is very easy as you can setup the screen to your language and the computer can choose to show you only the announcements that is in your language that make sense to you."
Cons: "Departure gate to far to get to! Changed gates didn’t notify on time . Waiting at gate to long."
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Cons: "I sent my old grandparents trusted them to take care of them but they were treated very badly and had a horrible trip"
Pros: "Nice to receive a tablet to watch movies despite not having screens. Good workaround."
Cons: "3 legs of my roundtrip were late by 30 min. crew was great however. Food was ok."
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. Boarding was chaotic - a full flight crammed into a departure lounge with far too few seats. There were many families trying to board and the staff could barely cope."
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Cons: "Too frequent delays. Both directions connection flight missed, due to delayed flight. Both delays seems happened due to landing queue load (plane rounded in air more than hour before landing)"
Pros: "Nothing jumped off the tracks. Every trip went exactly planned."
Cons: "thru Istanbul"
Cons: "Inability to get a full can of soda and beverages with ice, Wild kids who ran amuck in the cabins, insonsistent ventilation it was hot one minte freezing the next."
Pros: "Big plane"
Cons: "Boarding process was a zoo. Notificationso on loud speaker every 5 minutes waking you up"
Pros: "Great choice of entertainment, food relatively good for plane food."
Cons: "Crew was fine but not as friendly or cheerful as I'm used to flight attendants being. The leg room was pretty poor on this particular plane, there wasn't even space to put a small bag under the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I saw their Ad in their inflight magazine, didn't know they were rated #1 6 years in a row. Was pleasantly surprised on how good they were. Comfortable seats, excellent on board service, food better than average, pleasant and professional staff. Try them, you won't be disappointed"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and interactive. Entertainment was preety good."
Cons: "long waiting queues for checkin even if you checked in online."
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Cons: "The security check at the Istanbul gate is haphazard and not to0 professional"
Pros: "Superb service, food and entertainment. Especially liked the wifi that allowed me to read and send emails, texts and do some work."
Cons: "When I called the night before to check into the flight our reservation had been cancelled and we did not know until we got to the airport Turkish Airlines counter in Mumbai very early in the morning that we could still fly. Never understood why our names had been removed for our return flight. Because we didn't have a boarding pass when arriving at the airport the security hesitated to allow us into the facility. Luckily we found our itinerary and they allowed us entry."
Cons: "Had a nine hours layover and I couldn't even entre the Turkish airlines lounge. The airport in Istanbul also had terrible wifi connection. I would not fly this route again"
Pros: "Was very good everything"
Pros: "No personal entertainment screen. No USB jack. These alone are unacceptable esp for an international flight. Food was terrible - vegetarian option was plain pasta!. Seats cramped and too close together. Crew didn't manage passengers putting luggage away so passengers did it very badly taking up overhead room with jackets and small bags. Gate was overcrowded and hot without enough seats. Staff was pleasant though and friendly and courteous and efficient."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The entertainment system was not operational"
Pros: "Great service. On time. Friendly personnel."
Pros: "I like the service given and the space in economy."
Pros: "A lot of media content"
Cons: "driving to the plain by bus"
Cons: "The temperature was a little bit low."
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the ticket person and all the flight attendants on both flights. The cabin was clean, the climate was not too hot or cold. The pilots were very good at their jobs. The food was good."
Cons: "I didn't like having to disembark the plane in Istanbul while it was on the Tarmac nor get back on the plane while it was on the Tarmac."
Pros: "Went above and beyond"
Pros: "I enjoyed the options for entertainment on board. The staff were all polite and professional. The meals were satisfying and the drink choices were great."
Cons: "I was seated next to someone who moved a lot when the slept and the handrail barrier was not enough to keep me safe from involuntary jabs. Also, the touch screen wasn't working properly but after a few trial and errors, I realized that I could use the remote as an alternative to the touch screen."
Cons: "Seating was terrible. My seat was broken."
Pros: "EVERYTHING EXCEPT FOR BEING CRAMPED IN MY SEAT."
Pros: "Was very comfortable. l like it"
Liked every thing accepts the food which is poor for an international flight
Cons: "The are bin delete, and we go to plin and after siting, the change for in other ercraft. Big delay."

Cons: "Almost everything."
Pros: "The service was excellent. I felt I was flying in first class. Thank you."
Cons: "I think the entertainment should include movies."
Pros: "On time and soft landing"
Cons: "No entertainment for 3 hours flight is boring."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and polite"
Cons: "Apparently Aegean has stopped offering candy before take off. That's a pity as this was a nice (and presumably low cost) way of differentiating from other Star Alliance airlines. Food was mediocre and there was no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Accuracy in times"
Pros: "Fast and on time easy check in and kind stuff"
Cons: "To make the mobile application more friendly in mobile check in online ( copy all the passenger details automatically including the PNR for the boarding process and not ask again the same details that we fill in the tickets that anyway in the system see Ukrainian airline application for example"
Cons: "It was all great, apart from the bus we needed to board both sides air sides which delayed and complicated the process. Boarding at the terminal itself is much better."
Cons: "Food was very small portion, chicken (2 little slices) with plenty of potatoes. Forgot to give me the tray with the food,didn’t apologize at all.then they told me i need to wait cause they ran out of food trays.."
Cons: "The food honestly"
Pros: "Aegean Airlines improved a lot for the past six months. Food is much better and so is the attitude of certain number of crew."
Cons: "Boarding to international destinations still done with remote stands even under torrential rain."
Cons: "Legroom is extremely tight Boarding processes, including weighing of hand luggage are chaotic and feel like they are designed to catch people out."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, the food was nice, all the attendants hadn’t big smiles on their faces, the pilot was experienced."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Seats not particularly comfortable after a trans Atlantic flight. This review process needs a N/A category."
Cons: "Flight was late two hours..."
Cons: "We boarded late and had to sit on the runway for quite a while. Ended up leaving more than an hour late."
Cons: "I wish the announcements made in English were easier to understand"
Pros: "The upgrade to business class was cheap. The air crew was friendly. I enjoyed the experience with the exception of my suitcase getting broken."
Cons: "The airline broke my suitcase and when I landed there was no one to talk to as the desk was closed since it was 230AM"
Pros: "Ease of boarding and crew"
Pros: "The service the food the crew. All good."
Pros: "I like the people and the crew and the plane."
Cons: "That my bags had to be checked for an outrageous price of 50 euros per bag."
Cons: "We paid 70 Euro in the airport for a small suitcase. we felt robbed because we had no informations about charges of suitcases. If we knew about this we would not carry with us any suitcase. The seats were very tight and no comfortable. No entertainment at all."
Pros: "Friendly crew, great yogurt and snack in a 2 hr flight."
Cons: "Aegean desks very crowded at El Venizelos (Athens) airport. Airport authority should provide more desks for high demand airlines."
Cons: "They charged me an extra 40 euros to check a bag and then lost it completely. It looks like a long process and involved to get any cash from it, not to mention the real pain of being without power cords, clothes, toiletries etc for the rest of the trip. I will never fly out of Naples again."
Pros: "Once we landed in Athens, knowing that our next flight would be taking off in 5 minutes, we thought ther was no way that we'd make it. Instead, they had someone waiting for us when we got off of the flight and someone to run all 11 of us through the airport to the plane. Aegean held the flight because they knew 11 people from the Santorini flight were coming."
Cons: "Once on the plane, we ended up sitting there for another 30 minutes, even though it was already 20 minutes late waiting for us. When I asked the stewardess whether that meant that our bags were going to make the flight she said she'd have to check. She never came back. I then asked a second girl and she said that she'd have to check and she never came back. I finally asked again before landing and she supposedly went and asked someone and came back and said yes they made it. Got to baggage claim - no bags. We had another flight to catch back to the states, so we didn't have time to figure out the situation. We spent the next three days frantically calling Aegean, to no avail. Their customer service either wouldn't answer or would tell us to call London Heathrow lost and found, who wouldn't answer. Eventually, Delta found our bags and had to work with Lufthansa and their own boots on the ground at LHR to find the bags and get them back to us."
Cons: "Couldn't easily buy checked baggage beforehand so had to pay at the check in counter. The self check in kiosks did not work at CDG airport."
Cons: "As something that seems to happen pretty much constantly with Aegean... the plane arrived late and was delayed... which also in turn caused me to miss my scheduled bus to Jerusalem... but... what can you do... not everything is in our control unfortunately... I hope one day that the airline will organise itself and get things running a bit more smoothly.... Also... there was a meal on the flight but not option was given to those who are vegetarians to request a special meal at time of booking or later on while managing the booking... this was a bit unfair in my mind that my only option was a pasta and meat sauce meal so I did not get to eat... also... within my Star Alliance menber account I am listed as a vegetarian meal... so it should have been automatic just as it is on Swiss, Lufthansa, Etc... when I fly with them."
Cons: "Check in was a nightmare. Open up the gates at least two hours before departure to avoid stress for all parties involved."
Pros: "Friendly service and a wee meal on a two hour flight."
Cons: "No entertainment - but who needs it on such a short flight."
Cons: "Doesn't mention on kayak that the flight was low-cost flight and that we need to pay extra for luggage. we had to pay it on the check -in on airport and it was so expensive."
Pros: "Boarding wasn't the most efficient, but when is it ever? I had never flown with Aegean but had to take two flights with them between Munich and Rome. Economy seating was very comfortable, the aircraft were attractive and immaculate, the crews were lovely and quick, and the food on both flights was shockingly good."
Cons: "My flights were short, but it would have been nice to have a movie on thr screens distributed throughout the plane."
Cons: "A short flight so not that important but the seats were a bit narrow and mine being in front of an exit row did not recline"
Pros: "We were well looked after on both flights...My husband needed wheelchair assistance and the staff at Athens airport could not have been more helpful.."
Cons: "The actual booking for the flight was most confusing.I book flights on various other airlines and they seem more straight forward than Aegean .So much so I only found out the day before our flight that we had,nt booked our suitcases in and it needed a phone call to Athens to sort it out"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding was reasonable smooth."
Cons: "Flight was full and most people hast to check in their carrying suitcases. Food was decent, especially the honey yogurt."
Cons: "I would like if you call me and I tell you. 972-508935554"
Pros: "loved the airline! would fly with them again."
Cons: "connection Athun to Ionnina was late , we lost the connection flghit nobady really helped us They sent us to wait to the flight next day After a lot of talking and shouting !!! they let us fly to Thesaloniki , so we lost a day driving to Ionnina at the return ther was a missunderatandig regarding the availibility at the flight"
Cons: "Attitude to the clients was really appalling"
Pros: "The staff was nice. We got there alive."
Cons: "The flight was so cramped, my husband actually scraped his knees on the chair in front of him. Like, a legitimate abrasion on his knee. We weren't seated together, but the people in the plane weren't wearing deodorant or any kind of smell prevention, so the plane was ripe as heck. There was no rhyme or reason to the way the attendants served us - they'd skip people, then come back 20 minutes later to finally serve the skipped person a drink. There was absolutely zero entertainment on the plane, and the food was bad. The airline staff at the airport before departure was even worse! Kayak didn't allow me to buy a bag allowance when I bought the tickets. And there was NO advance warning that there was a weight limit for carry on bags (8kg by the way). So, we got to the airport and had to pay over £100 to check all of our bags. I didn't bring a laptop case, because my bag was usually a carry on, so lo and behold, I got there and yay! My laptop is broken and won't turn on. The flight was incredibly turbulent and my life flashed before my eyes a couple of times. We also had to go to 3 different ticketing Windows and bag drops just to get my ticket and check our bags. You would've thought they were building a rocket ship with the amount of effort that went into the whole ordeal. As I mentioned before, we weren't seated together, and nobody told us this or mentioned it when we got our tickets. Just ridiculous!!"
Never more flight with your company!!!
Friendly staff, very nice airplane.
Very slow boarding and a huge arrival delay resulted in many missed connecting flights. Luckily we were not one of those. Barely made it to our transfer.
Travelling from Nigeria was a nightmare. Those thugs at the airport gave my husband and i hell because we had our boarding passes on our phone. We had to keep bribing and begging them to let us through. It is the worse travel experience I’ve ever ever had in my entire life. And I travel a lot
Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good
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: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Staff: from check in to landing, they could at least smile. Baggage claim was a nightmare, 6 Schengen flights in the same belt."
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"
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!!!"

Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"
Cons: "Staff rude and short"
Pros: "General flight journey"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding needs improvement"
Pros: "Cabin Crews was extremely good and hospital. Transfer point staff buggy / wheal Chair was good and second to none."

Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."

Pros: "Good multi media access and content"

Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Pros: "Was able to check in online, very convenient and easy to access site."
Cons: "I didn't go on this flight, unable to leave Seoul (to Beijing) with China Southern."
Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"
Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."
Pros: "Much more civilised for the same cost (or less) as the budget carriers. Proper food and drinks included as is the norm with international flights even though it's a very short haul."
Cons: "The stinky guy behind me, but that's not the airline's fault."
The bathroom wasn’t super clean
Air France lost my luggage again Its the second time in a week
The staff were excellent, very helpful and efficient
Check-in was TERRIBLE !!! The AF staff was mostly clueless and not helpful, and the procedures in place were outdated.
It was so helpful to be able to board the plane front and back. It makes it so much faster. It was also helpful announcements were made in French and English. I cannot thing of anything that would have made that short flight better.
Pros: "Seats ok. Crew is super. Drinks offered"
Cons: "Nothing, AF rocks"
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us.The food was also mediocre."
Pros: "The seats were much more comfortable then my last flight. The entertainment system was also updated from the 1980’s remote and cord ones on my flight from DC to Paris."
Cons: "There was no food between the two meals on an 8 hour flight. I had a flight attendant rudely tell me that there is nothing to offer until the next meal. No one reached out to me about the horrible flight and comments I made from the last flight."
Pros: "There is a nothing to mention that was memorable or comfortable."
Cons: "I asked for an upgrade as we are on our honeymoon. The ground staff only wanted to get us on the plane and not try in anyway to recognize us. Our seats were very poor quality, you should immediately replace them! I would have rather stood than sit on the flight. The in flight entertainment is so poor. Absolutely disappointing especially with the head sets not working because of poor ports of connection. The food was absolutely tragic. You should fire your catering company. I expect more from your airline and I was disappointed all the way through. I hope you can provide my wife and I better service and an upgrade when we fly back to Washington DC on Flight AF 0054 from CDG to IAD. I work in the luxury hotel sector, and even the door men and room attendants have more autonomy to wow our guests. Flying AF does not want me to spend any more money with your airline in the future."
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Cons: "Everything, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Pros: "The crew and the food were great!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable. You could tell the plane was a little dated. There was no WiFi and nowhere to charge your devices."
Cons: "Air France’s apathy towards its customers is shocking. Traveling with three children , our flight was delayed by 3hrs resulting us arriving in Paris after 1AM. With the airport shuttle(CDVAL) to our airport hotel closed, they offered no assistance despite of my request. Simply asked us to take a taxi (when all taxi stands are abandoned at 2AM). Beware if traveling with family."
Cons: "I may be wrong but these days, the staff curtsy and overall well coming approach is lacking! Just a smile and a few cheerful words can transform passengers’ mood greatly!! This becomes particularly important when one is traveling for > 9 hours back to back flights!! One can extra charge for it!!"
Pros: "Cops is always a good reason to flight"
Cons: "They always change the gates, also too many disorders in the gate previous the boarding process, the process it is not clean. They took hand baggage aleatory to send to down and do not ask if we have fragile stuffs there."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "In flight complimentary food and drink service could have been better."
Cons: "Crew forced me to change my upgraded comfort seat to accommodate a 12 year old who they knew was going to be airsick. So I spent the first half of the flight next to a vomiting girl. Only after I asked to file a complaint, they allowed me one of two empty seats in premium. Terrible customer service."
Cons: "Everything very good"
Pros: "Air france crew at Mumbai Airport very rude and not supportive during checkin"
Pros: "DIY snack area"
Cons: "Food and seating"
Cons: "they lost our luggage very inconvenient"
Cons: "Air France delayed our JFK to CDG flight. That caused us to miss our connection flight afterwards from CDG to MUC. We got a later flight luckily but one of our bags got lost and is still currently lost!!!"
Pros: "Timely and smooth teansit."
Cons: "Food has a way to go to be appetising."
Pros: "SFO - CDG (Air France) was a great journey in all respects. But the one major reason for that was, the middle seat was empty. I was so fresh after the journey, would definitely recommend this flight to anyone."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by atleast 45 mins and therefore had to rush at the CDG airport to catch the next flight."
Cons: "I didn’t have time to make it through customs. Missed my flight"
Pros: "From the boarding, to the friendly hostesses to the food and the business class seat, I was impressed all the way. My first time to fly Air France business to the US and it was great. I recommend it!"
Cons: "I just expected better toilet bag for business but what was given out was just basic."
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: "Crew was very nice and the plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Worse food I ever had on a flight ( a small bowl of lentils and some bread) Movie selection was poor, although not a big deal"
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: "Easy, fast, comfortable, no hassles"
Cons: "People may think,that the delay of the flight has set my mood for this review but I can ensure it has most definitely not. With all the bad weather, I was already very happy to connect right on time in Paris. However, a long haul A380 flight with such a tight seat configurstion is almost embarrassing for an airline. The in flight entertainment is at a very poor level, not only with the screen being very small and outdated, many of the movies are only available in French and the international selection very limited. The food was not much of a delight, whereas the presentation was nice. However, in all the 7 h between the services, nobody came around with refreshments in a completely booked flight, neither was announced that a trolly would be set for self service in the galley. Lucky the ones who got up and found out about. In terms of amenities, again, the airline is lacking of originality and saves cost. Bottom line: you get from A to B, but there are so many better competitors in the market, which I shall definitely consider on my next travel."
Pros: "All was good we didn’t feel the time 9 hours passed easily"
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped. Poor leg room also with.metal bars under seats that further. Limited foot room. Terrible options in movies."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, fresh croissant and hot chocolate on my short flight. As many airlines charge now for any and all food items it was nice to again experience fast and efficient food and beverage service without the tedious hassle of ordering and paying. I’d gladly fly Air France again. First time, but likely not the last."
Cons: "Like all airlines , the seats could use a few more inches of space, even two would be nice."
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."
Cons: "There were not noodle soup ready this time."
Pros: "Friendly people on board"
Cons: "Crew was not very responsive. It would take over 45 minutes for them to respond to a customer call. Plane landed and we were kept on runway for 1.15 hours and crew only checked in with us twice during that time. People were panicking regarding missing their connections"
Pros: "Great people"
Cons: "It was an hour late"
Pros: "It was a 30min flight not much to say The crew on the ground really took care of us"
Cons: "The delay in the flight without even informing us of the reasons. Changing the boarding gates twice, and no options in the meal."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with good recline. Food was good, but not excellent."
Cons: "They forgot the snack/breakfast service for the front right section of economy then had to rush it. Overall, the service was good, but some things just seemed off. An attendant call was never answered, etc."
Cons: "Everything. AF changed seats without authorization or notification, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. Their entire attitude was "nothing to be done, now board plane and leave" no compensation was offered, nothing done to remedy their mistake or rude behavior and treatment"
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: "Boarding sevece was very nice and helpful Thanks so much"
Pros: "Free drinks and snack!"
