Pros: "Smooth, on-time, friendly staff. The food was giid and plentiful. What happened to the complimentary toiletries, though?"
Cons: "Omg did you study how to prevent people from sleeping? If you allowed the head of the seat to go back just 3 more inches i think i could sleep. Instead, i am tortured like a yawn that wont come out, a mosquito in the dark, an itch that runs away from my fingers ... out of reach and just inaccessible. 12 hours of wishing so that by the time i reach my final destination, I've been awake over 24 hours. Im getting too old for that."
Pros: "All their employees were very polite and it definitely stood out."
Cons: "Coffee just didn’t taste good to me. But they had wine, so not a big deal!"
Pros: "Nice staff."
Cons: "Economy seats very uncomfortable especially for long distance flights - barely reclining. Seat selection very painful - can do it online, have to call up to 48h before glight with roaming fees if already abroad. Food okay - nothing Japanese. Movie selection could be richer and better."
Cons: "I’m flying internationa flight but, I can’t get enough or right answer from my question due to Luck of english language. I’m not perfect when it come to this language but I can communicate properly."

Cons: "My original flight was late and pushed my entire schedule back. I had 15 minutes to deplane and get to my connecting flight. This caused a lot of stress on me however, the Japan airlones Crew escorted me (we ran as fast as we could) to my next flight so that I wouldn’t miss it. I boarded with 1 minute to spare which is way too close for my comfort."
Pros: "No major disasters, comfortable seats, on time."
Pros: "Crew service responsive and helpful."
Cons: "Poor vegetarian meal (mostly vegan rather than vegetarian and without condiments). Problems using entertainment screen, which would get stuck and also have to go through many steps (confirmation screen, language) to see maps each time."
Pros: "As expected from JAL, the flight was amazing in every way. The food (the Japanese meal) was not typical airline food, it was actually very good. The courtesy packets had many useful items including eye refreshers, lip balm, and the bathrooms were kept very clean and stocked with both mouthwash and toothbrush/paste. All together as flawless and comfortable an experience as possible on a commercial carrier."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like, but if I could make a suggestion it would be to offer a larger selection of movies and shows on the long-haul flights. Also the cabin twmperature was a bit too warm but I understand that might vary from flight to flight."
Pros: "Glad to make it to Japan safely and back in one piece"
Pros: "This was my first flight on JAL. Their customer service was especially good for English speakers. The food on the plane was good, but geared toward the Japanese customer. I must say that it was tasty, but unaccustomed to my palate"
Cons: "I think it would be good to put more food that is geared to a more international palate."
Pros: "Except for the tightly packed seating in economy class, everything else was beyond excellent. And even that was better than some US domestic flights. Large selection of Hollywood movies, gratis."
Cons: "I laughed at the Brace For Impact illustration on the safety card. It was not possible for me to double over with my arms under my thighs. The seat ahead was too close. The headphones produced tinny sound, and the two-pronged plug precluded using my own."
Pros: "The family had an amazing flight and the in-flight entertainment was excellent! My kids remained engaged for 6 hours and my wife actually took a nap..."
Cons: "As usual it is most difficult moving through the airport in China. It took a long time to get our bags and they were "damaged", however my box made it without difficulty."

Pros: "Comfortable plane, good service"
Cons: "The DC China Embassy web site clearly states that a valid APEC Business Card can be used in lieu of a Chinese visa. In spite of this I was denied boarding by JAL. It turns out the system is not fully in place, and eventually I was issued a 10 year multiple entry visa by way of apology. JAL did not waive cancellation fee, and I suffered considerable economic damages."
Pros: "Our flight from Tokyo to Beijing was very pleasant. The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. There was a lot more leg room than most American/European airlines we have taken. The food was quite good and we even got Häagen-Dazs ice cream."

Pros: "Crew was the best part. They were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food that I could eat was good, but there should be a no fish option. You have a lot of diet types available to choose from but none guarantee no fish. The process for requesting a special meal online was not clear and confusing. Seats were cramped and entertainment options were limited but still ok for only a 4.5 hr flight."
Pros: "More entertainment selections like movies and music. Food is great too. Best of all is the free day tour for long layover in Taiwan"

Pros: "EVA Air is consistent as the leg from Bangkok to Taipei. Flight was 30 minutes early that was great."
Cons: "Nothing of significance. Flight was full and just normal flight. Just a bit bumpy coming back."
Pros: "It was a very little late taking off, we did arrive on time. The online service was good, I got notice to check in online and was able to book my seat and select food for the flight. I prefer choosing seafood meal because it usually is good. Maybe not for breakfast. LOL Bathrooms were clean and well stocked for once and they issued blankets that were thicker and useful. Entertainment selection was good for films and TV"
Cons: "Seats are a bit worn, not as supportive. It was cooler in the cabin than I am used to. Previous flights it had been warm during the sleep period."
Pros: "Very nice flight and on-time with good food and adequate entertainment."
Pros: "I took the special meal for diabetes. It was a lot better than the regular one when i went to HONG KONG."

Pros: "Helpful, professional, and friendly cabin crew, who are also easy on the eyes:) Individual movie screens."
Cons: "The food is mediocre at best. But it's no worse than most economy cabins. Need better movies."
Pros: "We lucked out on a sparsely filled flight so nearly everyone had a row to themselves, even in Economy class. Food was tasty, and the crew provided many opportunities for drinks. Crew was friendly and even volunteered some drawing packs for our 19-month old!"

Pros: "Clean affordable flight with hard working staff."
Cons: "Seat was stiff and a little tight for me ."

Pros: "Flight arrived earlier!"
Pros: "Good leg room and seats are comfortable. Food was better than most airplane food. Entertainment system was great as well!"
Cons: "Flight attendants were obnoxious about window shades. They could have come around with water a little more frequently as well."
Cons: "Very well executed."
Pros: "Swiss is my new favorite airline."
Cons: "Nothing bad to report. Book Swiss!"
Pros: "It was ok."
Pros: "The in flight service was fantastic. The attendants were friendly and always smiling. The pilots flew the plane with Swiss precision. I had an economy ticket and they fed us twice and had at least six beverage passes to keep you hydrated. A blanket, pillow and ear buds were provided as part of the seat. Norwegian Air does not even cover a glass of water. They are pathetic. We will travel with Swiss Air again."
Cons: "Internet service is invoiced by the megabyte and not the flight. For flights of this duration, a lump sum is a better idea."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and accommodating. Chocolate always appreciated!"
Cons: "The passenger in front of me slammed into my knees. I am very tall. She was not but she sure got her seat back as far as possible in spite of having he bulkhead sear, so I had to be careful of my position the rest of the flight"

Pros: "Crew was particularly lively and friendly. The chocolates were awesome"
Cons: "No entertainment throughout"
Pros: "The transfer after the flight was very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment was absent."
Pros: "Crew was lovely! Friendly and happy. Well organized and responsive."
Cons: "Overseas flight seats were tight going and coming, and being that long a flight you feel you are sitting on top of your neighbors. Air quality descends on a long full flight, it became claustrophobic by the end. There was only an option for vegetarian-vegan, but I am not vegan. I won't do that again. My daughter's bag didn't make to SFO, even though we were early to check in."
Cons: "Older plane with poor seat comfort. (Same trip Bos to Zurich much better.) Video did not work at all in one seat and poorly in other ,for 7 hr flight"
Cons: "Our flight to Zurich was canceled and we had to take 3 flights to get to San Diego instead of 2. It was a huge headache. None of our flights were even with Swiss."
Pros: "A very friendly and attentive crew and a decent meal. Comfort is still iffy in coach but better than most American airlines. Good selection of movies to pass the time."
Cons: "Seats in coach are cramped and some have an electrical box under the seat in front of you, so there is no room for your legs or carry on bag. Bathrooms keep getting smaller to jam in more seats."
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: "Both times I flew with Swiss airlines it’s been great! Food is pletntiful, staff is very kind."
Pros: "clean, very new plane friendly staff"
Pros: "Great service."
Pros: "food was great in economy"
Cons: "the 7 hour transit time"
Pros: "friendly ,respectful, helpful,informative"
Cons: "the very long layovers.i did not enjoy complications to find a place to rest between long flights."
Pros: "Who knows hope to actually get on it and make it to destination"
Cons: "Not sure just know leaving 10 hours late"
Pros: "crew great smooth flight"
Cons: "no problem and happy crew."
Pros: "Great flight. Lots of good food."
Pros: "Nice staff, very friendly"
Cons: "Paying for WiFi, could use more comfortable seating"
Pros: "staff was very nice"
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: "Flight was fine! Snack and beverages were good. However, when you buy the ticket for the international flight, what they don’t tell you is the extra €40- FORTY EURO you will spend to check a not big bag. For this reason I would fly with another airline next time."
Cons: "Extra fees for checked bags"
Pros: "The crew fed us well throughout the flight--and we got free wine with dinner. The food was pretty good for airplane food. We got fresh dinner rolls, salad, dessert, and Swiss cheese. We got ice cream part way through the trip. I loved that we got a piece of Swiss chocolate on each leg of the journey. The crew was friendly. There was a screen at each seat where you could watch movies or TV, listen to music, or track your flight. The entertainment was free, and the crew provided free earphones. Blankets and pillows were provided."
Cons: "Like most planes, there was not enough leg room. It makes it pretty uncomfortable for an 11-1/2 hour flight. The boarding was a little confusing, but no serious issues."
Pros: "The plane was very clean the seats were neat and everyone was very friendly."
Cons: "Penalising passengers who travel on board with only a smaller bag by making them put this under their seat in front in front of them whilst others are bringing on two huge bags"
Pros: "Food was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "One of our seat back entertainment units did not work. The attendants tried to reset it twice, but it did not help."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Waiting in line in NYC for take off was about 50 minutes. Small seat space with annoying passengers who watch movies all night with bright screens or push and press my seat all the time. Earplug is uncomfortable, breakfast is plain, hot chocolate is horrible. It was a full flight and we even lost my daughter's cardigan."
Cons: "1h45 departure delayed with no compensation."
Pros: "I love everything. The aircraft was spacious and clean. The crew excellent and the food very good."
Cons: "I wouldn't say didn't like something but we had to wait 40 min over the time we were suppose to take off. And this is notbody s fault but it was ind of long..."
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: "My luggage was lost for two days on the flight from Tampa to Zurich and/or Zurich to Naples. It was delivered by the end of the second day. But before that I found out I could not choose seats online for any of the Swiss Air Flights to and from Europe. It "had to be done" at the airport. Why? Never explained. I called Travis International, the agency booking the flights. Totally useless conversation resulted with no explanation."
Cons: "The Flights were longer than other airlines taking similar routes. The routing was absurd. To go from Naples to Munich and then turn around and go to Zurich before the 10 hour trip to Tampa made no sense. Lousy routing and customer service. Eidelswiss apparently is a lower-end branch of Swiss Air. My airfare was as much as and more than my other friends who flew Delta, for instance. Flights on other airlines did not take 10 hours from Zurich to Tampa. I lost the ticket receipts and could not claim anything for the items I bought to try get through the two full days without luggage, even though the airlines has a record of the claim. Outrageous!!"
Pros: "non stop food was a great distraction from being on plane so long. Loved blanket and pillow and having own TV. Service was constant and the crew were so wonderful! I would be delighted to fly swiss air again."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized but I am sure that is no fault of your own."
Cons: "When I booked the flight I thought it was El Al so I did not order kosher food (as all El Al food is kosher). I only found out later that it was Swiss Air and I was unable to get a kosher meal."
Pros: "the captain was great"
Cons: "our flight attendant was impatient and bossy two days after the flight, my husband had to be taken to the emergency room - diagnosed with pulmonary embolism SWISS MUST DO A WAY BETTER JOB CALLING ATTENTION TO REGULAR EXERCISE ON THE PLANE!!"
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "I have been flying to Asia on Asian airlines and maybe I have become accustomed to flights and crews that know how to manage a long flight. For example: The crew seemed tentative and untrained. Saw the crew once between the meal at beginning and the meal at the end. I wonder where they can hide for so long on a small plane? Too many announcements by the Captain -- shut up and fly the damn plane! Do you think the crew might replenish the toilet paper on an 8 hour flight? on another note: Seat spacing is adjustable - very close seats Overall--- underwhelmed"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The service and food was excellent. There is no question about dislike"
Cons: "The most racist and unfriendly and uncivilized people ever."
Cons: "Headsets did not work"
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Very old plane. Had a big metal box at my feet, could not stretch out. Tv screens old and hard to watch. Food was pretty bleak too. Very disappointed."
Cons: "The least amount of legroom ever. It should be illegal how close those seats were."
Pros: "very nice flight, good attendants, plentiful with food and drink although dinner was dry (pasta) but tasted fine. Planes (I had to transfer) were on time and efficient. My carry on luggage was weighed which was unusual to me. It was overweight but the kind clerk checked my bag through with no charge as a favor. A pleasant surprise!"
Cons: "Had to make a lot of calls to clarify things. Website not always clear. An example is that I paid extra to reserve seats early and when I went online to do other things, although it showed that I had a seat reserved, it also said no reservations were being taken for the flight in a highlighted notice. Turns out it was just a general blanket message but to me it looked like my seat may have been cancelled. All phone representatives were courteous and helpful although sometimes their accents were strong and challenging to understand but they didn't mind repeating themselves until I understood."
Pros: "Very good. Good entertainment options."
Pros: "We were fed constantly, which is nice because on a longer flight you never feel hungry. The staff was great."
Cons: "More space would be nice but I guess you can't ask for too much on flights these days."
Pros: "The take off and landing was peaceful and on time"
Cons: "I didn’t like changing boarding gate three times. The crew member was poor overall including the one providing service I must say."
Pros: "on time; boarding was smooth; leg space was good"
Cons: "wifi was not working; food was below average; movie selection options poor"
Pros: "Same as other answe"
Cons: "Lufthansa left us stranded in Dublin"
Pros: "The crew was good and the food from Frankfurt to Abuja was good"
Cons: "The layover time was extremely too long and would even be longer during my return"
Pros: "Great flight and food options."
Cons: "The seats we were in were where it went from 4 in a row to 3, so the telvisions were not directly in front of us, and i had to keep my head turned at an angle for ten hours. It sounds silly, but my neck hurt after the flight a little. Might be a pop out tv you can attach that is moveable to fix this"
Pros: "Lufthansa always great. Comfortable seats, good and safe service."
Cons: "Very professional, helpful and friendly. Clean, great ride, smooth landing."
Pros: "Nothing at all, whole experience was incredibly stressful"
Cons: "The transfer was awful. Long line for the frankly bizarre security check despite never leaving the terminal, incredibly rude staff at Frankfurt airport, all wearing may we help badges, so kind of answered their own question. Check in staff once we had sprinted th length of the terminal very rude"
Cons: "Didn't make the flight"
Pros: "What more can you expect for economy travel?"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Cons: "Bought the premium economy on Lufthansa, but ended up on Eurowings. Food same as Economy, 1/2 the entertainment choices. Definitely not worth the money."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Friendly crew."
Pros: "The crew was excellent! Quick services and very courteous."
Cons: "The screens in the seats could be upgraded."
Pros: "Loved the food, the comfort of the seat/plane and entertainment. Timing of meal service was perfect and overall seemed far less rushed and chaotic compared to emirates business class."
Cons: "Some staff were a bit hit and miss. Mostly nice but some were not. I was clearly having trouble getting my seat converted to its bed and 3 flight attendants walked passed me and didn’t help even though they noticed I was. A portion of leather covering under the tv where I feet went was hanging off when I boarded and but on with masking tape. Took the elegance away. It’s funny they use the old fit our A380 but such a long flight."
Cons: "We weren’t able to take this flight because our trip to Salzburg ended up getting canceled! We had to cancel this one"
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: "Nice Crew except when they were not watching where they stepped. Smooth flight."
Cons: "I had a swollen and sprained ankle during the flight, I had it resting near the aisle to stretch and move to try and keep it from swelling further. Unfortunately, my injured ankle was kicked several times by a rushed crew member. It would be great if they could be a bit more mindful and watch where they are walking. Also, the breakfast before landing was spoiled when I discovered fungus in my butter after I had already eaten half of it."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Crew was very professional and nice."
Cons: "Arguably the worst food I have ever experienced in Business Class. Entertainment was average. Seats not all that comfortable for sleeping on a 12 hour flight. Also, it was hard to hear the announcements over the PA system."
Pros: "Underseat AC power and USB power was the highlight of the trip."
