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: "The airplane was cool and the time for arriving was correct as well as easy to check in. The pilot was good and they told us who won on the World Cup tournament I liked that. There was a younger crew memeber she was reaaally nice."
Cons: "I asked when i got my ticket for a window seat and he said he gave me one but he did not in the two flights I got. I requested the crew for a window seat if possible since I had been feelin nauseated, it did not help that the guy sitting next to me had a really bad breat and smelled bad. They offered me a sit in the middle of the plane, that did not work well because I was feeling sick, being in between a big guy and a bigger lady was not going to help at all. There was an older crew member and she seemed to be kinda discussed with the trash even though she was using gloves. Food was ok but not the best. To top it off I told them that the headphones connection wasn’t working and they only brought me a pair of new headphones. I tried mine and they didn’t worked, so the whole 8 hrs of flight I was watching movies with sound only from on side. They didn’t even bother, I guess cuz I am economy? Not sure I did see some free chairs in the lanes between economy and first class but they didn’t even suggested that so I decided to suck it up and sit on my assigned chair. The bathrooms where dirty and smelled reaaally bad from the beginning that really was disgusting to be honest. I can let go many things but not that. I had to help the passenger sitting next to me cuz he didn’t know how to do anything and didn’t speak English, he was an older man, with signs I was able to show him how an airplane works. I never complain about flights but this one was tooo many little things. Oh and what about an international flight where I have to pay for a second bag! Really? I did it on my way to Europe and I thought I payed both and then I had to do it again. Whatever money I thought I could save was a lie because I ended up paying a lot more adding the bags and additional transportation for home based on the airports. I am not satisfied at all with the flight experience"
Pros: "good flight didn’t have any problems"
Pros: "Very Pleasant Staff!"
Pros: "Generally Swiss air was good"

She check my carry on and they lost , I have only bag with lipstick in there"

Cons: "There's nothing I didn't like :)"
Pros: "Everything !"
Cons: "My seat was semi-broken, it was in constant state of reclining."
Pros: "I really liked the "About my flight" application on the viewing screens because it always gave me an idea of what we were flying over and how much longer we woulld be in the air. The food was excellent and I was pleasantly surprised that I could have wine with dinner or any time the attendants offered beveragess. The attendants were always professional and helpful. They all were fluent in English as well as several other languages. It was a nice touch when the attendant wore white gloves when he or she was collecting passengers' trash after meals and/or beverage service. I loved the cheese that was served at dinner."
Cons: "My seat was a little confined when I put my carry-on bag in front of me on the flight to Zurich, but it was roomier when I stowed my carry-on in the overhead compartment on the returtn flight."

Cons: "At check-in counters, staff managing the queues did not speak English at all, same thing at the security check queue, only Spanish speaking. There should be some clearer instructions of how and where to queue at boarding. Everyone just wanted to cut queue."
Pros: "Service ok"
Cons: "Horrible food, tvs didn't work, crowded."
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: "Everthing went as planned. Left on time. Cannot complain."
Cons: "I paid for a seat on the aisle with extra leg room. Seat 24D. There was only minimal foot space because of some type of metal box under seat 23D. I don't think that I should had to pay $45 for the extra leg room just to receive cramped foot space."
Cons: "Small seats ,and temperature too hot"
Pros: "Excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "The boarding process for the economy class seems a little chaotic since there is no distinctions by zone or seat row. The result is a surge of people right when they announce boarding for that cabin."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for no particular reason. The entertainment system is terrible - it was interrupting (freezing) the movie every several minutes making it almost impossible to watch."
Pros: "Cornella was my flight attendant and she was amazing! Such a sweet woman. Someone give that beautiful lady a raise, extra week of vacation and a high five for me. Food was great. Drinks were plentiful. Seat was comfortable and I felt the pilots did a great job of finding the smoothest flight path."
Cons: "Entertainment selection left something to be desired. When comparing to Virgin it is tough to be anything but disappointed."
Pros: "went smoothly on our flight from Zurich to Boston. The flight attendants made all the difference! We would fly Swiss Air again."
Cons: "The arm rest would not raise so it was 100% out of the way on our Airbus 330. This was true for all coach seats in the main cabin."

Pros: "Everything. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Everything was very good."

Pros: "Very comfortable seats and good service. Easy flight, no disturbances with duty free"
Cons: "When I transferred to the next flight I was asked to put my carry on into the hold since the flight was overly full. I found that outrageous. There was also no help with taking things out and maybe providing a bag for things I needed on the flight. Felt very rude and not helpful"
Pros: "Yes, Very good"

Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."

Pros: "Comfortable seat, great crew."

Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"

Cons: "Security check at gate; No priority"

Cons: "The overall travel was good, no wifi and the entertainment system had a faulty headphone connection, and no place to charge devices other than through a USB port"
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."

Pros: "Snooth and efficiënt with a KLM service"

Cons: "No complaints about anything."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."

Pros: "Easy boarding, plenty of room"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
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..."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
Pros: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"

Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was ok. They seemed really hectic between Heathrow to Rome."
Cons: "The seats were too tiny for business class. Nowhere to put anything. So close to next passenger. I would not fly business class again on BA Terrible entertainment. No interesting movies. I guess they tried to have movies only with British actors/actresses. Nothing current. That’s pretty bad for almost. 10 hours flt. He seats in business class between Heathrow to Rome were like regular seats except with the middle seat blocked off. Food was just ok."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Plane changed to an A380"
Cons: "Waited over half an hour to get off at Heathrow owing to staff shortage so the air bridge took a while to happen!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by three hours; not sure how to fix that but it was annoying. For some reason the arm rests in the middle of the seats would not go fully back and I felt like the flight attendants were talking down to me. They also could have been having a bad day too with the flight. :/"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed an hour out of Denver and then 4 hours delay out of London to Lisbon. And, after that long delay they didn't even offer free water."
Pros: "Very friendly"
Cons: "I was not able to make this flight due to many technical difficulties, waiting in lines at the airport for over 4 hours, and having British Airways automatically change my flight booking Gatwick (which is 45 minutes from where this second leg would have been!)."
Pros: "Felt like a disorganized mess! I don’t understand how this is still in business. Water was for sale on the flight, not for free. Water!! It’s a basic amenity. Exit row was exactly the same leg space as the rest of the aircraft. So why did I pay extra?"
Cons: "Delays! Delays! Delays!!"
Cons: "The AA flight from NYC was late arriving at Heathrow, causing me to miss the connection. AA/BA was very good about orienting me to the new plan, but the delay was very inconvenient and being in the last row of the newly arranged flight to Lisbon was downright unpleasant."
Pros: "Decent snaks. It gets you there."
Cons: "It’s your basic flight from A to B. Nothing fancy."
Cons: "Was not offered a drink whole others around me were. Don't know why."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Inflight meals and entertainment seat pitch"
Cons: "No USB connection."
Cons: "The plane had a mechanical problem and did not fly out. We are hoping to fly out one day later."

Cons: "Delays delays and delays"
Cons: "No free snack or drink, noisy plane...couldn't hear stewards, and VERY uncomfortable seats...."
Cons: "We had a horrible experience in boarding BA both in Chicago and returning from London. In both instances, our seats were held back, told the flight was oversold (we booked 90 prior to the flight, and almost didn't get on the flight returning home. Our confirmed flight was meaningless. I'll never use Kayak again."
Pros: "Boarding efficient, take off on time, flight smooth, crew professional."
Pros: "On time , efficient process. Courteous counter staff."
Cons: "Only H2O. Nicole and dime on everything else."
Cons: "Overbooked. Bumped off - next flight more than 7 hours later."
Cons: "The crew were spread thin and not particularly helpful. We were charged for drinks that are usually complimentary (water and ginger ale) and when the credit card slip needed to be signed, my partner's ginger ale was spilled. The attendants couldn't be bothered to give us more than two cocktail napkins to clean up an entire can-worth, and did not offer to replace the drink. I had to dig into my bag to try and find napkins because there was soda covering the tray as well as all over the seat and his lap. I've always had positive experiences on BA flights, but sorry to say this one was sub-par."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Seats were somewhat spacious."
Cons: "This flight was also delayed twice. Once because the pilot was sick and again for weather. We sat on the tarmac for an hour. No food or drinks were served."
Pros: "My upgrade."
Cons: "That I needed to be searched again before boarding the plane. The long layover."
Cons: "Flight was 45 minutes late. Crew was standoffish, bordering on unpleasant. They want you to pay for a glass of plain water! Definitely not the British Arways I remembered."
Pros: "Friendly and attentive flight staff, excellent entertainment, pilot's candid messages."
Cons: "Strange seat layout. It felt crowded."
Pros: "Quiet flight lots or spare seats - good price. Food pretty good"
Cons: "Viewing sets stowed in front of rows old and not easy to move"
Cons: "Couldn't check-in online. Website said to go to airport and talk to staff - should have said: "invalid passport, get new one!" That would have been so much more helpful. Substandard food, especially 'breakfast'"
Pros: "The flight was pretty standard in most ways, nothing too great/too bad."
Cons: "The food service was horrible. After dinner service, that was it. I didnt see anyone in the aisles with water. But the worst was in the am (this was the Chicago to London flight) there was nothing offered before landing. My experience is that there is usually tea/coffee/a light snack. But not even water was offered. I have told this to a number of people to get their opinion. Everyone is surprised. On the flight from London to Lisbon, nothing but tap water was free."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "My monitor didn’t work and I asked about it twice. Two crew members said they would look into it but it never got reset."
Pros: "The crew had to deal with a medical emergency and they were excellent!! Despite extra pressure they kept us all informed and were polite and friendly under pressure!"
Cons: "lack of seat space and could not put seat back because of medical emergency so hard to sleep. Exhausted on arrival at Heathrow! Headset did not work properly on films Did not like the boarding process !!"
Cons: "I missed my flight from Barcelona and when talking with BA customer support they were extremely unhelpful in helping me find a return flight to get home to America. In the end I was offered almost no help and had to buy a brand new flight via American. I loved my flight TO London on BA, it was fantastic but the return experience was a nightmare. Can I look into a partial refund on my ticket since I never caught the return flight?"
Cons: "Charged us for food and even soft drinks on an international flight! I haven't experienced nickel and diminig like this on a n Major carrier like this."
Cons: "Seating. Meal. Entertainment. Did not compare well to Air Canada."
Cons: "Space for legs"
Pros: "quick luggage delivery in Lisbon"
Pros: "Flying on the 380 very smooth"
Cons: "Gate was not available at arrival"

Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work. Crew tried to get it working with no success."
Cons: "Flight crew was very aggressive and casual. Displays are ancient. Seat was broken."
Pros: "Al parts of flight expertly handled by staff, especially cabin people. Thanks for a great flight, VA."
Cons: "The boarding gate was not posted until 25 min before plane was scheduled to depart, the departure was 20 min late, Customs at Lisbon took 1.5 hours for a simple stamp on my American passport. The aircraft was packed full, not even water was offered without charge, the service even at that was barely fast enough to make one pass of the passengers before landing, the aisles were continually blocked with service carts selling so how are you supposed to make a bathroom break?"
Pros: "Quick flight. Nice crew"
Cons: "The fact that there was no free food and drink on the flight."
Pros: "staff were good"
Cons: "out of date entertainment food"
Pros: "Basic flight, no food/drinks. direct flight. no personal tv."

Pros: "Flight was on time and slept most of the way which is always a good thing."
Pros: "Great flight. Good service, decent food and drinks."
Cons: "The only complaint, which is just because of my size, is the seat width. A little more comfort on a big jet would be nice. An upgrade solves that issue."
Cons: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "Things are getting smaller, we're paying more for less and less; it's all reducing except the cost. Generally flying is no longer 'special' it's kind of routine, like cattle herding--and the customer is the cattle."
Pros: "Quick turnaround from incoming flight. Crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours."
Cons: "We had a two hour delay causing me running through the London airport to make my flight only to sit in the airplane for an hour because someone decided at the last minute not to travel. In the end, my only two bags didn’t make it. So inconvenient."
Cons: "We lost the conection because pre departure there swas an issue with one of the wings of the plane and took about 30 min. Afterwards after landing the plan had to wait another 15 minutes waiting for the gate. American Airlines atributed the issue to weather conditions in Vancouver, false."
Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "It is not the airline, I just had screaming kids beside me and behind me for 5 hours"
Pros: "This was Japan airline and the crew were very respectful and responsive and food was amazing"
Cons: "The entertainment selection could have been better"
Pros: "The plane got us there safely."
Cons: "The crew was basically useless. They hung out in the back not really paying attention or just in the way. One stewardess knocked me in the head when passing through and didn’t even apologize. No one greeted or told goodbye at the end."
Cons: "No entertainment or WiFi at all"
Pros: "Friendly staff made people feel safe even during turbulence."
Pros: "The most efficient boarding process I've ever experienced."

Cons: "I would have like the opportunity of moving up to preferred seating. Would be willing to purchase it"
Pros: "On time, nice plane"
Cons: "Realized I left my iPhone in pocket of my seat as soon as I exited plane - spoke to gate agent within 1 minute of leaving plane and she Asia she would get the cleaning crew to look while I waited. Waited 20 min only to hear a bunch of lies about how they asked the flight attendant to look but she couldn’t find it - should have just walked back on plane to do it myself. Was told to “go online” and file a lost and found report. This is a small airport - TRI cities TN - absolutely zero customer focus by and American Airline employee - and I asked to sp all with a supervisor and manager with the hope I would get my phone back. Worst service and zero caring attitude I’ve dealt with - and I fly a lot. It will be Delta from here on out. I went on line and filed a complaint and lost and found report - am betting a large amount of money I hear nothing other than an automated reply."
Pros: "We arrived safely and so did our luggage."
Cons: "PHL-Lisbon plane left 3 hours late due to CATERING problem. Seats were uncomfortable and food was awful. Lights and entertainment controls at my seat didn’t work."

Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "No food"

Cons: "Very cold airplane"
Cons: "3 hour delay and much confusion. In and out of aircraft."
Cons: "The flight leg PHL-LIS was the most unconfortable transatlantic trip I ever experienced. The plane was small, tight and no head support made this the worst transatlantic flight of my life, easily comparable to any low cost airline."
Pros: "Getting out of the plane! and the landing was very good."
Cons: "Bad service no entertainment besides a one very childish movie. My tray stayed with me the whole flight, I had almost to beg to take it and never s flight attendant seem happy, pleasant or even profissional. The landing by the pilots was amazing."
Cons: "Cero entretaintment"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "There are NO ENTERTAINMENT, and I had two flights that were more than 5 hours each. It was not operated by British, it was actually American Airlines."
Pros: "The boarding process was good."

Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"
Pros: "Crew and promptness"
Cons: "No entertainment for each seat. No cellphone charger."
Pros: "The flight had a delay of 4 hours in Philadelphia. I missed the appointment in Lisbon for which I was flying in the first place.

Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy gate agents were awesome."
Cons: "Older plane. Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "I was supposed to dj in dallas at 12am got a flight in at 7pm but with mechanical problems flight was delayed to a 2:20am landing which I missed my job. I paid for a flight I didn't use and lost 1300.00 usd 0 out of 10 for AA"
Cons: "Without any explanation...American Airlines cancelled my reservation! I needed to be sent back to poor quality hotel for a night and take a different flight out the next morning. American Airlines was supposed to provide transportation back and forth from the hotel however a car never showed up at the hotel to pick us up and I needed to get my own taxi at the last minute (American did however reimburse me for the taxi fare at the airport). I never received an explanation as to why my reservation was cancelled and was never offered any type of compensation for such a major inconvenience. They dd ultimately waive my 25 bag fee but it wasn't very easy to even get that from them. I felt that they should have been more empathetic towards my inconvenience and offered me any type of compensation to make up for such a horrible experience. When I asked about possibly being upgraded to first class they told me absolutely not! A little graciousness can go a long way, American Airlines showed that they could not care less about my inconvenience (other than Rodrigo at the counter the next morning who actually showed he was truly sorry for the situation and at least ended up moving me to a row with more legroom). Other than this, I was extremely disappointed with this experience and how it was handled."
Cons: "Only suggestion would be to make the connection process a little easier. If the passenger doesn't speak English, the fact you need to print the international ticket in Miami, then re-enter at checkpoint might create confusion."
Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "We were cattle attendants cowboys"
Pros: "Flights were on-time, planes were clean/newer, snacks were good."

Cons: "There weren't any screens in the headrests for individual movie-viewing."
Cons: "Terrible transit to terminal in LAX with shuttle and stairs"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."

Pros: "That IBERIA brought me to where I wanted to be"

Pros: "The crew on board seemed efficient and friendl for this short 2.5 hour flight."
Cons: "No food, no drink, no entertainment were included with this fare. Thankfully we were so exhausted from the long haul flight immediate preceding this flight that we did not care. I'm not sure why but the gate staff was trying to get everyone to check their smaller bags including our backpacks. My husband gave in but I did not since not having them would be disaster during this trip. His backpack and many bags from other customers came about 15 minutes after the rest of the luggage so we were a little panicked. Thankfully all turned out fine."

Cons: "Before boarding, crew member had each of us throw our carry on luggage through a hole in the wall (no, they didn't help), down a chute (yeah, a slide... not a motorized belt or anything), watching our luggage hit the ones below. No one was below to catch them, and we saw them slamming into each other, some falling on the ground. Highly disturbing!"
Pros: "Crew very nice"
Cons: "Food terrible."
Pros: "Check-in was fast and efficient in Boston. Crew was friendly with good service."

Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "They were very unhelpful in flight changes and schedule changes. I was very disappointed in all the travel agents we spoke with.

Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of legroom. Service was pleasant."
Pros: "Nothing stood out."
Cons: "Late. Ineffective boarding - announcement said we would board by row, but actual boarding was by mass crowding, with no attempt by crew to improve matters. No recognition of dwindling baggage storage space meant that I had to cram my suitcase under the seat, and spend the 2.5 hour flight with my legs jammed against it."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "The plane was supper cold & the service was poor."
Pros: "So refreshing an experience after AA: Iberia's Airbus was clean, their staff efficient, and professional, and electronic updates were provided at every connection! WOW!"
Pros: "The friendly, professional and always willing to help and device staff. The tasty food and snacks. There was always a member of the staff visible so it was easy to get water during the 10 hour flight. Or you can go and see them into their resting area and they were willing to help."

They fasten seat belt sign was on way way too long with no turbulence so they did not have to open the bar. They would not serve vodka from the cart and you needed to go to the back of the aircraft for it. Will not fly Iberia again. ."
Pros: "Got to my destination"
Cons: "Many passengers luggage and mine did not arrive. Had to wait over 8 hours to recieve it."
Cons: "This was American Airlines, not Iberia. Flight was supposed to leave at 9:45 pm but was delayed to 10:30 pm. At around 10:45 the flight was delayed again. At around 11 we were told that our pilots were too tired to fly and two other pilots might fly us but we wouldn't know untill 12:30 am. At 12:45 am we were told the back up pilots refused the trip. American Airlines has no back up plan for this apparently and the flight was cancelled till 9:30 am the next day. It was 2:00 am before I received a hotel voucher. Overall terrible experience."
