Cons: "Toilets not very clean towards the end of the flight"
Pros: "We liked the excellent crew. They were very curtious and made sure every small request was fullfilled. We met couple of friends on the same flight.

I strongly suggest if someone is bigger than a certain size then they should book 2 seats as 17 hours it wasn't easy for me to ask him to sit in a correct manner or have the handle half up so he uses my seat too Overall u satisfied and painful experience Net was slower on outbound too"
Pros: "Service, food and entertainment"
Pros: "In flight staff were great, very industrious, and very friendly. In-flight entertainment was the best I have come across on an economy seat."

Pros: "Crew was great, seating comfortable."

Passengers behind me constantly kicking, pulling my seat—wouldn’t allow me to put seat in recline position."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "seat comfort"
Cons: "Don’t overbook trafficking of flights, I barely made my connection. My colleague missed this same flight last week and had to spend the night in Zürich. I hope this is not a trend because I will not fly Swiss anymore, as I can not have lost evenings due to flight delays."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. I was in the last row, and my seat would not recline, which made the flight less than comfortable."
Pros: "They had many snacks and meals. And the meals were very good. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Seating is very uncomfortable and small. Really limited on space if seat is reclined in front of you."
Cons: "I am still in Budapest and was not able to fly back on my Hungarian passport."
Pros: "Enjoyed the surprisingly good vegetarian hot meal, wine, and chocolate! (And silverware) Said to us they cared for passengers and the environment. A much better overall experience than with United!"
Cons: "Plane did not have a place to switch to the other aisle without disturbing passengers or crew! You need to move a tad bit on such a long flight!"
Pros: "Swiss air Business is an excellent choice. I will fly this Airline again. It was extremely comfortable, service was excellent, and the flight crew made up our lost time in the air. We had a tight connection and they waited for us."
Cons: "We didn't fly to Zurich. Instead, we flew from Berlin to Frankfurt to San Francisco to San Diego. Although the alternate airlines did a fine job and we had nice flights thanks to them, we only found out about the change when we arrived at the airport and it caused us multiple inconveniences throughout the day. Our flight from Berlin to Zurich was scheduled to board at 9am, so we left our accommodations at 6:30am so we could arrive at the airport around 7am. It was a rushed, hectic morning and we stayed up late preparing for it the best we could. When we arrived and found out our flight was canceled, we learned our new flight wouldn't board until 11am. So we rushed for no reason and had to spend a considerable amount of extra time at the airport that we could have spent enjoying coffee one last time at a local cafe or something. We planned to fly straight from Zurich to San Diego so we could participate in an interview for our Global entry application (which you can only do when arriving in the US from an international flight). Because we had a brief layover in San Francisco instead, we had no time for this and were unable to do the interview when we arrived in San Diego because it was a domestic flight. The change also caused issues with our luggage. We're not used to checking bags when we fly OR flying internationally with layovers in the US, so we asked the agent at the Swiss desk in Berlin how it would would with both of those aspects in our travel with the itinerary changes. The agent told us our luggage would follow us all the way to San Diego and we didn't have to worry about it. However, we learned once we got to San Diego that our bags were left in San Francisco because apparently we were supposed to pick them up and recheck them, but we had no idea. It was a huge bummer and we wish we would have had more control over our itinerary that day. People book certain flights for certain reasons and need to have a say when their flights need to change."
Pros: "I treated myself to Swiss Business (for a second time) for this trip and it was terrific. From the comfortable seats, the fabulous dinner, the outstanding Swiss staff from the baggage check to the wonderful flight attendants, the flight to Zürich and the return trip to Boston was amazing! I cannot say enough good things about Swiss. I would love to be able to fly Swiss Business again when I travel to Zürich in September 2019."

Я потеряла три дня отдыха. И до сих пор я дожидаясь , сижу в квартире и не знаю когда он прибудет. Я крайне не довольна To the planting, I was spoiled vacation. My luggage was lost. I have to go shopping for 3 days and spend my time on vacation, buying the necessary things, those that are necessary for recreation. I lost three days of rest. And so far I'm waiting, sitting in the apartment and I do not know when he will arrive. I am extremely unhappy"
Pros: "The Boeing 777-300ER is ether new and clean."
Cons: "Seating was super tight. Once the person in front of me declined their seat the screen of the inflight entertainment system was right in front of my nose (no, my nose is not particularly long). I’ll consider flying Lufthansa or United next time - even if It required a stopover in Frankfurt or Munich."

Cons: "TV was a bit small"

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: "When checking in, I was upgraded to business without knowing it until I looked at my boarding passes. This was a good surprise of course."
Pros: "There was a half hour delay due to some no-show passengers. The flight was delayed while their bags were removed. The problem was explained well. The flight crew seemed to made up for much of the delay by flying faster or more directly so the total flight time did not increase by 30 minutes. Fortunately this was our final flight segment so the delay was not a problem."

Cons: "unable to choose seat without paying extra."
Cons: "1stly the lady at the check in was not nice [ i should have gotten her name -] she was rude and quite 'authoritarian' which is uncalled for- when you have paid an expensive ticket are just trying to check in. then I checked an extra bag - and could not pay where i checked in. i had to go to another counter to pay - there was a line and it took a good few extra minutes - and i still had to get thru security. if you can pay at the check in counter this would avoid this extra step. i was really not happy about it swiss air needs better efficiency and better customer service"
Pros: "A swiss machine..."
Cons: "the smell someone left in the bathroom before me."
Cons: "Could use some more seating space"
Cons: "They charge you an extra $ 100 DOLLARS FOR THE OPTION TO PICK YOUR SEAT AND WHEN YOU CHECK IN THEY SAY THAT IT WAS JUST TO SIT IN THAT SECTION OF THE PLANE. WE PICKED OUR SEATS BY THE FRONT BULKHEAD AND WHEN WE CHECKED IN THEY REFUSED TO GIVE US THOSE SEATS BECAUSE THEY SAID OTHER PEOPLE PAID MORE THAN US TO HAVE THEM. THEY SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED FOR THIS KIND OF FRAUDULENT ACTIVITY."
Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."

Cons: "My luggage being lost both from Toronto to Zurich and from Zurich to Toronto. Air Canada took nearly 4 days to get my baggage to me in Toronto, as a result of which I was unable to attend a funeral in Chicago. I was lied to over and over by air Canada. The entire experience was horrible."

Pros: "Good snacks, comfortable flight."
Pros: "The delta crew both ways between Portland and London was excellent! They saw to our every need and were smiling every air mile of the way. Plane"
Cons: "Need to have food choices available for those with allergies. Almost everything had gluten and soy in it and I am very allergic to those. I had to give away all snacks and most of my food. Even in comfort+ class the seats are tiny with little legroom. Also, please clean the bathroom every few hours"
Cons: "Just better food"
Cons: "I paid to be in row 1 first class, when I checked in I was in the first row, then as I boarded I was told my seat changed to the back row in first class for no reason at all. I choose the 1st row for a ready and I expect to sit there! 2 flights in a row that Delta moved my seat for no reason"
Pros: "extra legroom of comfort plus zone"
Cons: "Bordung process runs smoother now that the order is made clear ahead of time. In jfk they did not have the columns marked “comfort” “priority? “Main 3”, etc, like they had at Reagan arpoirt in DC"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour. Missed my Easter dinner plans... :("
Pros: "The crew was spectacular. My son and daughter-in-law (married the day before) were are the flight as well, and the flight crew went out of their way to welcome them."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the flight was so short, there was little interaction with them."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster, people didn’t have seats which caused a delay in boarding. It was a mess. The seats were uncomfortable and too small. I know it’s a short flight but it was just too tight in there. The flight was delayed and the communication was all over; the time was constantly changin"
Pros: "I was in Comfort+ so there was a bit more leg room than standard economy"
Cons: "Even with Comfort+ things are tight."
Cons: "Please reduce your delays - again we took off with more than an hour delay and by definition you are responsible of that disagreement, you are the company I am paying for the service...."
Cons: "they let someone get off the plane and it delayed the flight an hour and a half which caused me to miss my connecting flight. I now have to sit for a 5 hour layover"
Pros: "The flight was fine. I don’t do 5 stars ever since they started pushing the limits on seating. I also have a problem with the wide swing in prices for the same flight but know that is marketing."

Pros: "entertainment and leg room on regular seats"
Cons: "delay, boarding process"
Pros: "Short flight! Crew nice enough!"

Cons: "Seats don't recline far enough."
Pros: "Good choice of video programs."
Cons: "The flight attendant took 25 minutes to appear, and had enough time for one round of service. First class, at least you should get two drinks. Fly basic economy, there just isn’t any reason to fly first class."
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"
Pros: "The snack variety"
Cons: "My headphone jack was broken :("
Pros: "Ind-atl flight was absolutely amazing i couldn’t find really anything wrong with the flight besides spacing for seats"
Cons: "Spacing with seats"
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."

Pros: "I was able to sleep!"
Cons: "Could not get comfort upgrade"
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional.

Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"

Cons: "Screaming out of control children. Parents not caring that their children were constantly running up and down the aisles. Crew unable or unwilling to intervene."
Cons: "One hour late after a stay over already 4 hours."
Cons: "Two overhead bins burst open during takeoff. it's pretty scared when luggage could potentially come flying at your face."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."
Pros: "All went well"
Pros: "Boarding & crew were excellent. Very polite."
Cons: "On flights 0204 & 1687 on 9/21/16---there were no blankets available for comfort. I would expect this since I paid extra for the delta comfort seats. Not very nice☹️ Only Chardonnay & Merlot wines were available. if you're going to carry two full bodied wines then you should carry two light wines as well. For example a Riesling or Pinot noir. I could not drink either of the wines delta carried. Furthermore, I tend to eat low carb & sugar snacks. All the snacks offered were high in carbs except the peanut packs. Delta only had one peanut pack on board. They had many pretzels , bananas & yogurt bars which were high sugar & carbs! Try carrying some Greek plain yogurt & unsweetened vanilla almond milk. TY for your attention."
Pros: "Smooth flight, fairly comfortable seats in economy with adequate legroom (and I have long legs), flight attendants actually smile and are polite."
Pros: "Frontline staff were nice."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled last minute. Instead of a direct flight to start vacation, we ended up with a five hour layover in Atlanta. And to top it all off, they tried to double charge us for a checked bag fee."
Cons: "Everything went well"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and as far as airplane good goes, it was great."
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "Went First Class. What a joke! Coach seats & service. Only difference is they leave the middle seat empty. This appears to be the European standard (we flew on 3 different airlines) for 1st Class within Europe flights. Save your money, fly coach within Europe."
Cons: "He option to split groups of travellers."
Pros: "Bathrooms were clean"
Cons: "The entertainment was not functioning"
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Cons: "This was a smooth as clockwork journey, the transit was easy and we were kept well informed about changes in the gate number"
Pros: "Great crew, food, entertainment and drinks."
Cons: "Only thing that could be improved is comfort. They provide a small pillow and blanket, but even with those, it is very difficult to sleep."
Cons: "There were not enough vegetarian options, so I had only bread, butter, and dessert."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Weird plane noises (typical of older Airbus planes)"
Pros: "Non eventful flight."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Cons: "Waited in Luftansa line 9.5 hours to rebook flight after Munich airport shut down for 7 hours. Lufthansa totally unprepared for this situation. Understaffed and unhelpful with directions. Finally got to Los Angeles after 48 hours. Still haven’t gotten luggage 2 days later and no communication on when to expect it."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "1 hour delay again"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Cons: "That you get out the plane using the steps and take a bus to the main airport.. and waiting for the wheelchair for half an hour"
Pros: "The crew was the most accommodating I’ve ever had and I was in the basic economy seating. The food was better, pls es more comfortable, and entertainment far more advanced."
Cons: "I hated that the plane did not wait for me as I have been on plenty of airlines that have waited 5-10 mins to allow for these sort of things to be rectified. thankfully, Lufthansa and United booked me on a plane that left 5 hours later. they even bought me a 10 euro lunch. :), a pass to the , Luftanhsa lounge would have also been a good showing. I asked about this , but was gently denied. the help desk was gracious, which I appreciated. I had an entire row to myself on the United flight to DC, which softened the blow as well but the flight to Munich from IAD was great (2-28-18)"
Pros: "Beautiful clean aircraft . Superb crew."
Cons: "Sits are extremy tight"

Pros: "Comfortable seating, very good and pleasant crew."
Cons: "Online seat reservation didn't work. Limited food choices and no vegetarian/vegan options. Big selection of movies and music, but quality not so great."
Cons: "Hamburg airport not prepared for winter weather. Delayed over 2 hours due to de-icing staff not ready. Airport did not see light snow on radar? Missed connecting flight. Lufthansa put us in hotel 45mins away from airport with no luggage. Switched us to a united flight and not together."
Cons: "Late one hour. Apparently equipment failure"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Great crew service, comfortable, modern, captain kept us up to date and actually made up for the lost time on the delays to take off and got us nearly back on schedule."
Cons: "Food wasn't the best tasting, and made me sick."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Two flights were both late Had to run to gate Luggage delayed"
Pros: "First leg got cancelled and missed all connections. So frustrating!"
Cons: "Gate agent in GRR rebooked a flight the next day, which is too late for my event in Florence. When I called Lufthansa to see if I could get on an earlier flight, they could no longer help me because the new reservation was with United."
Pros: "SEAT COMFORT CREW ALL AROUND BOARDING SMOOTH / ON TIME / SOLID ALL AROUND GREAT AIRLINE"
Pros: "Roomy seats, excellent service!"
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like!"
Pros: "Faster, newer planes."
Cons: "Flights were late and boarding was caios, no one had any clue what to do. Blankets were filthy. Entertainment had limited choice. Considering I took six flights in this month, I will let it slide that they ran out of New movies. Worst part was food. Obviously, there is no quality consideration when they decide menu. Check Emirates or other similar fare bracket airlines to understand the gravity of Lufthansa food problem. If one reason I had to choose to drop Lufthansa from my future consideration then that would be worst food and drinks. I would strongly recommend that they should assign people who need additional time to board at the back of the plane. It will help them to go back of the plane faster and avoid gridlock in the middle. Another advantage is it will help other passengers leave plane faster at the end of the ride. Boarding process will be come significantly faster by filling the plane from back to front by loading passanger with children and who needs time at the first loading area at the back of the plane. Thanks"
Pros: "food was great"
Cons: "gate changed and we gad to take the bus to the plane which lead to sn delay and almost the plane couldn't leave before the airport closed. however, we eventually made it ..."

Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Brand new plane, pleasant attentive staff. Delayed leaving but most of time made up. Since plane was new everything was clean and worked well *including audio, good movie selection too."
Pros: "After so many domestic flights of being shuffled around and interacting with flight attendants that seem to not like their jobs much and passenger's are just an annoyance, flying abroad on Luftansa was quite a different experience! The flight attendants were polished, professional, and actually wanted to provide a service. Their interactions made me feel like I was cared about and that they wanted my unique needs to be met. This made a 10 hour flight an enjoyable experience which I certainly didn't anticipate."
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good! Pretty good selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Leg space was limited- even for a 5'4" person!"
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the staff, the flight was good, the food was very good."
Cons: "I closed my eyes for just a few minutes two hours before landing and I missed the last meal. I was not sleeping but somehow the stewardess was going around quickly because I heard her in back of me. I thought she was headed in my direction but she had already passed me and then the drinks came around so I could not get thru to go back and ask for the "pizza". I wish the stewardesses would make a quick check up and down the isles in case someone dozed off. The first meal that I received was very good but I am glad I didn't miss it when they came around. Especially that I traveled alone. I do have to say that the comfort of the seats on the way to Europe was much better. It was a different airline."
Pros: "Seats were really good despite the fact that it is economy class. Food was very good، and entertainment was a blast، watched 4 movies during the flight. The crew members were really polite and helpful. Lufthansa will be a choice for me for any further travels."

Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
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."

Cons: "Nothing to improve"
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."

Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
