Cons: "None"
Cons: "No complain . It’s singapore airlines"
Pros: "Staff was great as usual"

Pros: "The lunch and dinner menu was excellent"
Cons: "more bathrooms."
Cons: "the food was mediocre at best - had to ask for water couple of times"
Pros: "Boarding was good and the flight time was shorter than expected."
Cons: "My son did not like any of the meal selections between beef and fish. We asked for a ramen noodle cup instead that the flight crew denied they had, only after seeing them offer it to another family just seconds before. I was very disappointed!! I believe the flight attendant knew of my concerns because she started asking me if the service was ok. If your doing a good job, then you won’t have to ask."
Cons: "We were not provided vegetarian food on two legs of journey although we had earlier informed the airlines."
Pros: "I ordered a Indian vegeterian meal. It was very good. I feel bad about all the playin cups, and garbage that gets wasted. Please recycle everything."

Cons: "Some of the male crew didn't do anything, the females did all the interactive work in serving and helping the disabled as far as I could see."
Pros: "Everything was pretty great. Crew is very nice. Food was very good actually. 2 meals with snacks when asked. Hot towels were given a couple of times. Drinks were served and offered throughout the flight. Socks and toothbrush also given. Entertainment was great with a good mix of movies. Chairs were comfy and leg space was ok."
Cons: "I don't think I would complain about the space otherwise except that the person in front of me decided to recline their chair all the way back. It was a tight and fairly uncomfortable ride the rest of the time."
Pros: "The crew was really great, so friendly and accommodating. I wasn't able to order a vegetarian meal ahead of time, but they still gave me one on board when I asked. There was an amazing selection of movies and they refilled my drinks without even asking. I would recommend this airline to anyone traveling to Asia."

Pros: "The crew was very kind and helpful."

Pros: "The seat comes with foot rest attached to the front seat."
Cons: "I asked for decaf coffee and the attendant totally forgot about my request."
Pros: "The air stewardesses took their time to get back to me about a question I posed to them. It took 2 stewardesses and 3 efforts."
Pros: "The attendants were helpful, smiling and friendly. The entire time We flew with an 18 month old and they came looking for us before he flight to help us carry our stuff on board. They gave her a toy, asked for her name, and checked on us often. They also gave my husband and I an option for early food service so that one of us could help our daughter eat. The movie selection was great. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. And we arrive half an hour early both directions!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent service by flight crew. Good selection for entertainment. Flight was enjoyable."
Pros: "Great service, great experience."
Cons: "I liked it all."
Pros: "Best economy experience I've ever had. The cabin crew is very attentive, constantly coming around with drinks and water refills. They also had decent light snacks in case you were hungry between meals. I also loved the chairback setup and the entertainment unit. If flying economy, Singapore will be my airline of choice."
Cons: "Food was meh. Above average, but still not amazing."
Cons: "On my trip to Japan, the staff was incredibly rude. Horrible commendations. The controls didn't work. And the desert had mold in it."
Pros: "Overall very good."
Cons: "Weren't informed of status of connecting flight while in flight. Learnt that the connecting flight was held back on arrival in terminal."
Pros: "Great food, friendly staff, on time... what else do you need?"
Pros: "Check in and boarding were flawless. The flight left about one hour late. The seats in coach are getting smaller and smaller. I got an aisle seat to have a little extra room (I'm 6'1") only to get hit big time by the food cart (they did apologize). The food was plentiful, but mediocre at best. The flight attendants were working hard, but we're abrupt and tired. Overall, I have three stars, when in the past, flying SA was always a five star experience. It got me back home though. :)"
Pros: "Great food and fantastic service"
Cons: "Needs more legroom"
Pros: "Amazing crew, great service. Really good food"
Pros: "Flight crew we're attentive and anticipated issues. The flight was smooth and the lavatories were clean and stocked. Love the hot towels at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Not much to be honest. I suppose if I could say anything it would the seats in economy are a bit cramped, but that's to be expected."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "We were supposed to fly back to Los Angeles from Tokyo on Wednesday, August 24th. We got to Tokyo Narita a little later than planned due to the Narita Express train being delayed. I had received emails that our flight had changed gates, and was then delayed, but when my sister and I went to check into our flight, we were told we were unable to board because it was too late. I thought it was absurd because the flight had not even started boarding, and I had gotten an email saying it was delayed. We tried to reason with them, but they would not let us on the flight. It was imperative that we got back to Los Angeles on Wednesday, but all our plans were ruined due to them bumping us off the flight. My sister had a connecting flight to Boston, which she then had to reschedule and was charged for. We were stuck another night in Tokyo, where we had to spend money on a hotel. The Singapore Airlines attendants eventually informed us that we could get on a flight the next day. This delayed us by 24 hours, which was highly inconvenient. It was also especially unnecessary since due to the flight being delayed, we would have absolutely been able to make it. I do not appreciate being bumped off of a flight due to airlines wanting to make more money, especially being stuck overseas. Its not like it was a domestic flight where we could just hop on another one in the next few hours, this totally derailed all of our plans. I do not appreciate the inflexibility of the Singapore Airlines agents, and this is not an experience that makes me want to recommend flying with Singapore Airlines. I appreciate that they did not charge us, however it was a major inconvenience that could have simply been avoided by better customer service and understanding."
Pros: "I like that I could check in 2 suitcase and able to choose my sitting when it's available."
Pros: "Staff friendly and efficient"
Pros: "The flight was an hour shorter than i expected. The staff was around and attentive. I felt like i won the lottery with flights"
Cons: "Not one complaint"
Pros: "I loved the entertainment, the kind staff, and the extras they gave out to try to make us as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "My boyfriend is very tall, 6'6. On the flights to and from, even though he was on he aisle side seat, it was very difficult for him to have enough room for his legs, thus making my space that much less. In the future, I think we would benefit from booking either the seat behind us for him that had more leg room, or the seats in front of us that were the first seats of all rows."
Pros: "Flight was pleasant, boarding was a tiny bit disorganized. They didn't use the groups for economy, perhaps because there was so many of us."
Pros: "Very pleasant, staff was always smiling and eager to help."

The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."

Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Pros: "Emirates allows you to start inflight entertainment as soon as you board and are seated. That makes any wait time more enjoyable."
Cons: "This particular flight was full. And I believe they may have been understaffed. I received my special meal but then the drink service didn't come around until most people were finished with their regular meal service. They didn't serve drinks and meals at the same time, for some reason. And the meal clean up took place way after everyone finished eating. It was an unusually long wait. This was surprising coming from an Emirates flight."
Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"
Pros: "Entertainment facilities very good. Important for those long trips. Food good too"
Pros: "A selection of recent find on the in flight entertainment, relatively comfortable seats, and generally good care whilst in board."

The flight was excellent. The airport need to adopt some system that make the travelers less tired.

The bathroom is not that good.. dirty.. the sink is not properly draining.. (all bathrooms - all flights- back&forth) . There was no toilet paper seat either going to DC. Crew is not picking up trays/trash right away. Once, we even brought our tray in the back. Food should be mix of western& middle east. middle east food is a bit too much for some passengers- too smelly, spicy,— The crew are nice though. Very helpful and friendly.

I love Qatar Airways.Thanks to all the people who serve the airline

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Pros: "All okey except earphones issue .. doesn’t works to be connected"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Flight"
Cons: "Wheelchair was booked for me for both flight but i could not get that service. No one available for wheelchair. Very bad service."
Pros: "Everything."
Pros: "Crew was superbly amazing which made flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Heating food with plastic containers is unhealthy and might cause cancer to people. It’s scientifically proven fact that plastic and heated food is carcinogenic. So please find other solution for it. Thanks"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."

Pros: "much better than average food"
Cons: "shorter length flight but maybe little can be done,"

Cons: "I advise Qatar Airways"
Pros: "amazing"
Cons: "better food"
Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Cons: "Boarding at Bali Airport is chaotic. This can hardly be attributed to Qatar Airways but this needs to be sorted out. When boarding began, it started with "Group 1" rather than business and other priority customers. It ended up rather chaotic with boarding halted at the end of the escalator causing a very uncomfortable situation as people struggled to get off the escalator."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Pros: "Qatar flight is no problem"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "Comfortable, on time"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Every thing is great."
Cons: "Food Seat great service"
Cons: "Seats are way uncomfortable and small"
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Cons: "It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage and I am getting no straightforward answer"
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Food was better than average, blankets were soft and seats were comfortable. Good flight."
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "Everything was great except Food and service comfort of the plane Cleanliness was superior"
Cons: "One crew member was a pain if you wanted ice you got 3 cubes ask for more he would ignore you. He was rud and nasty. I mentioned to other crew members they say just his way. If that is his way maybe he need find new job."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was nothing to like. Considering my travel experience with Qatar & middle eastern airlines they've gone worst. The aircrafts need to be upgraded especially on long flights. Food was horrible and so was the entertainment. Would not recommend or fly Qatar again."
Pros: "As the flight would be long (from Japan to Sao Paulo) they had the gentleness of putting us in the best seats well ahead that were available"
Pros: "From start to finish the whole process with Qatar Airways was smooth and excellent."

Cons: "We had reservations for 3 persons. When we arrived, we were required to upgrade (90,000 yen total) in order to be seated together. We made the reservation 2 months earlier. Seems like it would have been possible to put us together."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "They lost my luggage"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I tried to cancel the flight more than 14 days before the flight and you didn't let me. I couldn't fly that day and i have not received a refund"
Pros: "I liked that I was able to get back home."
Cons: "Everything. There was no organization when boarding, the crew denied me food when I woke up from my nap. Not foreigner friendly at all. The crew was not attentive and I needed to keep calling them for service. Not mindful that this is a long trip."

Pros: "Amazingly kind and helpful crew. Great food."
Cons: "4 hours layover plus 3 hours delay. Horrible."

Pros: "The fruit was good unfortunately the fruit was about all I could eat because my booking didn’t show there would be food and I couldn’t request a special meal"
Cons: "Late landing, and it was a mess boarding the plane. Also, I could hardly understand the flight attendants, they need to speak English better."
Pros: "I liked the seat and having a full row. Food was better and healthier than most airline food. I had the Korean dinner of bibimbap with miso soup and pickled radish and the Westerm breakfast of a cheese omelette with vegetables and a fruit cup."
Cons: "Too hot! Hard to sleep when it’s near 80 degrees. Tip: sprinkle water on blanket for a cooling cover."
Pros: "Over all everything was great except for the above complaint"
Cons: "I basically don’t eat rice for breakfast. I food choices could be updated to accommodate those that don’t eat rice as a First meal of the day or Americans passagers. Over all the flight was excellent."

Cons: "Service over all"
Pros: "The food was excellent."
Cons: "The seat back wasn’t comfortable."
Pros: "By whatever reasons, the ventilation system at one of chamber was out of work and the cabin was so hot that keeping swearing all over the flight....

Pros: "The food was great and the crew were all very polite and friendly."
Pros: "Great Staff from check-in, gate & flight crew"
Cons: "The Meal: Should have had the Chicken instead i had the Beef Cheeks, What the hell are Beef Cheeks? If it doesn't look tasty i'm not usually going to eat it. The rest of the meal was great."

Cons: "Very unorganized boarding process."

Cons: "Not being able to speak Korean. Good thing they understand English."
Pros: "Very polite crew, modern and clean aircraft, lots of leg room, and great food."
Cons: "Three of my four flights were delayed."
Cons: "The flight was delayed too much, by the time I reached Seoul all the restaurants were closed and I couldn't get anything to eat until 6 am. I specifically booked an early flight to avoid this."
Pros: "The price: my round trip ticket from Tokyo Haneda to JFK was only 850USD The layover is only 2 hours which is bearable and enough time to find the boarding gate and a little shopping."
Cons: "Everything else. You can check-in online within 48 hrs before your flight, but there is no QR code produced on their app for paperless check-in. The food was terrible, and the seats were not made for long flights. I really felt the "economy" vibe. They only provide disposable slippers, but everything else you need to check the lavatories if there were toothbrushes or mouthwash packets left. Overall, I will still consider flying this airline for any emergency flight back to the US, but if there will be a compeittive airline, maybe i'd try another. Their business class seem enticing.. maybe comsoder it too."
Cons: "seats"
Cons: "Problem with getting off the airplane"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Dirty plane, floor and table were not cleaned"
Cons: "Poor front desk service From ANA, poor entertainment system of seat delaied landing."

Pros: "Clean planes attentive attendants good service"
Pros: "The food was good, and the crew was friendly. Boarding was on time."
Cons: "No leg room, no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "I love the new A380 but wonder why even a new plane comes with ashtrays in the bathroom..."
Cons: "was not informed I would have to pass through security screening in Seoul. I grabbed some beers in the Hanoi airport as souvenirs but had to turn them in when changing planes in Seoul."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Everything was great. Asiana is a Top-2 Airline in Korea no debate"
Pros: "I got delay which make me dont have enough time to check in at LA"
Pros: "Nice enough crew."
Cons: "Terrible food. It is a waste. Better not to have it at all or just give some good snacks. Aircraft seemed unclean and old."
Pros: "I flew Cathay Pacific from New York to Seoul. It was an ok flight, Cathay Pacific has great reviews online, however the seats were cramped, the entire flight was full and the food was just ok. I stared flying Asiana Air between Tokyo and Seoul, and then I changed my return flight home to this airline. The airline had great service, delicious meals. I was even served meals on the 2 hour flight between Tokyo/Seoul both ways."
Pros: "The food and drinks were up to par but not great Convenient arrival/departure times.."
Cons: "Service is hit or miss. Stewardess manners can be favoritist and downright rude/bossy at times. My flights years ago were great, now I would not look for anything special from this company"
Pros: "The seats were roomie and the stayed flight attendence were very nice."
Cons: "When the movie you were watching ended, you had to wait for all the other movies to end before you could watch another one."

Enjoy food could be better plus again some wipes to clean hands before meals

Delayed 1 hr on departure waiting for connecting passengers Delayed for 1 1/2 hours on landing at Newark due to unavailable gates for deplaning Person sitting in front of me coughing and sneezing entire flight at times without mask

Pros: "All was Good, no special negatives."
Cons: "Not worth my time to comment."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Time schedule Better customer services"
Cons: "Seat could have been more comfortable but the leg room was good"
Pros: "Crew was great, seating comfortable."
Cons: "seat comfort"
Pros: "The seat was ok, I paid $ 115 per Trip ( total of $ 230) just to sit at the emergency exit to have some leg room and then I am sitting next to the bathroom and people stepping on my feet because they tend to hang out around the bathroom."
Cons: "The flight attendant not wearing perfume. Food was very poor to say the least."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly, pleasant and very helpful. Upon arrival in Delhi our suitcase handle was broken."
Cons: "Food is bad"
Pros: "On time, nice crew"
Pros: "Great cabin crew!"
Cons: "While waiting to board SFO-ZRH flight Swissair personnel walked around and randomly pulled out passengers from line to check luggage dimensions. Since manufacturers adhere to airline baggage standards, no violations were found during checks. This misguided effort only resulted in publicly humiliating Swissair customers. Boarding process was pure pandemonium...this was the first time in recent memory, where all coach passengers were invited to board at the same time! Very inefficient! Crowded seating in coach,with ten passengers sandwiched in across Boeing 767 aircraft. Competing airlines flying identical aircraft have nine across seatings Thin seat cushions cause leg cramps after a few hours."
Pros: "Seat was ok, crew was friendly"
Cons: "Movie options were limited"
Pros: "The crew was great. I was lucky to get a comfortable enough seat. Not the one I actually booked and paid for but still it was ok."
Cons: "I was told I was placed on standby for this flight despite the fact that I booked this flight and paid extra for the chosen seat far in advance. The boarding was chaotic. Very poor communication. The flight was very delayed."
Pros: "The service and the crew were fine"
Cons: "Seats are too small and terribly uncomfortable on such long flights."
Pros: "The crew was superlative, and after I was stuck for an hour at passport control I found the captain waiting with my dog(in his crate) to make sure of his well being. He said he made sure he kept the climate control at 20c the whole time on the plane. You hear all these animal horror stories but this went above and beyond."
Cons: "It was so hot in the plane and there were no air vents to keep air circulating."
Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"
Cons: "Very little space- I thought I was in economy plus having paid extra for seat reservation. When person infrint put seat back it was very difficult to view screen"
Pros: "Amount of times drinks, water, was served."
Cons: "The person in front of me reclined seat the whole trip. Very, very uncomfortable for me."
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!"
Pros: "Crew was good. Very polite. The plane was old. No place to charge your phone. The in flight screen required the use of a remote which was inconvenient when having to wake up my neighbor to pull it out of the armrest. Food wasn’t great. Skipped the last meal service. It was like flying 20 years ago. Not bad, but not as good as it could be nowadays."
Pros: "The attention to Detail during the entire flight. Sure beats the US flights!"
Pros: "Relaxing and graceful service Pleasant flight attendants the crew greeting you as you embark as well as when DS in barking restrooms clean floors clean The flight was very enjoyable this was my second time flying with Swiss air and it was just as enjoyable cannot put in any complaints I give you five stars No complaints it was excellently although it was a short flight from Budapest to Zürich but it was good and the flight from Zürich to JFK New York was excellent my first name is Ibolya"
Cons: "No complaints it was excellent"
Pros: "Although sitting in a plane in coach could never be considered a wonderful experience, Swiss Air did the most to make it so. in particular the crew was very responsive and cheerful. The leg room wasn't bad and they were very liberal with their wine and beer offering."
Pros: "Plane on time, crew friendly. Great flight!"
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."
Cons: "There were quite a lot of in-flight announcements by the flight crew - which disrupted the in-flight entertainment and irritated the little ones. The garbage dispenser in the bathroom seemed a bit small for the task."
Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"
Pros: "Once staff arrived all went well."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for about 1pm and we arrived with another connecting flight to the Athens airport at 8am as that was our only choice. No staff arrived until 11am to check people in and take baggage. We were flying business and would have liked to check in earlier and make our way through security to the business lounge but could not and had to wait for three hours. It would have been nice to have one person on duty."
Cons: "Very rough landing. They dropped plane 5 or 6 times minutes before landing almost puked my guts out"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi on board."
Cons: "Worst experience. Very rude employees. Not great flexibility with carry on luggage beware"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "No space, bad video screens (especially important for a long flight with a 3 year old) with terrible image and sound quality, even with my good headphones."
Pros: "Fine"
Cons: "Newark airport is awful. Can't get food, can't get coffee, can't get a newspaper. I would try to avoid it."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "No USB. Entertainment was so-so."
Pros: "Registration and baggage check was fine, no line to wait im. The flight was moderately full. Good food and beverage service (although Lufthasa is a bit better)."
Cons: "Zurich airport dining facilities are poor - no choice of warm food and pricey."
Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."
Pros: "Business class was full so I could not get an upgrade. There were only 4 lavatories for economy. One of those was broken and there was no water in any of the 3 remaining ones. The crew had no water either and they could not make tea or coffee."
Pros: "The food,crew and flight were flawless. Our flight scheduling had us connecting within a thirty minute period in zurich and we had to run to catch the flight. Probably would have missed the connection if our 26 year old son didn't run ahead. Too much drama and no one from swiss air to help. Suggest more time for transfer in the future or someone to guide passengers. We were nit the only ones. However, we did make it as did the others ( luggage too!)so kudos to swiss for waiting"
Pros: "Accommodating"
Cons: "Flight attendant spilled hot tea on me and he didn't help me out. The other flight atttendant assisted to my burns. I have 2ond degree burns on my arm from this incident."
Cons: "People who handle Swiss"
Pros: "Swiss Air was the best airline ever!"
Pros: "I loved the timing of my connecting flights. Just enough layover time."
Cons: "There is no entertainment on this flight."
Pros: "Great flight crew, on time performance"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The most racist and unfriendly and uncivilized people ever."
Pros: "5star"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time"
Cons: "Seat cramped"
Pros: "Cabin crew was very nice and organized."
Cons: "Flight delayed , and while waiting for long time I was not sure which gate to wait infront."
Pros: "Entertainment, movies music were good selections. We enjoyed them. Although the headphones jack socket for my wife;s seat didn't work properly. They should maintain their equipment better."
Cons: "In Zurich if you travel to US or Canada, they have just before the gates some security check that ONLY verifies the passport. It seemed weird to me. Why are they not excluding transferring passengers from this nightmare. Because it is a nightmare. Long and disorganized lines where travelers, that have diverse leaving times, are trying to enter 4 check points that work slow and nobody manages all that mess. On the plane, absolute unnecessarily (they had extra unoccupied seats) they took one of our carry-on-s with the check in luggage. The seats are extremely tight and offer a very small place for the economy class. Nothing special about the food."
