We were very impressed with Swiss Air. The service was exceptional. Unfortunately, we had a baby behind us that screamed for hours. , It was a nightmare, though I completely understand that it was not Swiss Airs fault.
The two meals were plentiful and excellent. The drinks were continuous. Thanks, Crew very polite; however a bit "hazard" at the end as they were rushing us off; to prepare for the cleaning team and next flight. Baggage from Berlin was delayed; however through the apps etc; they kept me aware and informed.(.did receive my baggage about 36 hours after my flight arrival). Good experience; thank you.
Cons: "Reckless and inconsiderate airline. The only carrier refusing to modify travel due to Covid-19 pandemic"
Pros: "Food was good and plentiful."
Cons: "There was no way for us to reserve seats with extra leg room 48 hours before the flight. Had to sit in agony for a 9 hour flight because of height"
Cons: "My flight tickets were mess up and I had to purchase new tickets . Horrible"
Pros: "This was my first and last time I will ever fly with Swiss airline-it’s been 4 days and I still didn’t receive my baggage and I had all my medicines in them,that’s including my carry on bag too,because it was taking from me @ the gate and I was told I will get it at my final destination,which I didn"
Cons: "I just would like to get my baggage- which is been 4 days since my arrival and they can’t even tell me where they are at!!!...."
Pros: "Seat more comfortable than most economy seats with other airlines. Smiling, attentive cabin attendants. Good food. Easy to get to next flight. Seems a bit more spacious than other airlines."
Cons: "Free Wifi."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "suddnely delay of 30 Minutes , then waiting in the plane all in all 60 Minutes - thats a long time for a long distance flight"
Cons: "They asked me to pay for my luggages. It is strange"
Cons: "I’m a small person & your seating is cramped & uncomfortable!"
I been flying with Austrian for few years, they never failed me.
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and lots of leg room. Food was good."
Cons: "The Austrian airlines website is absolutely the worst and least user friendly that I've seen for an airline. I tried paying for my bags and it rejected half of the itinerary's bookings for no reason. It took a ton of clicks to get stuff done and I kept getting errors. Very limited movie selection."
Pros: "Arrival to the terminal was a breeze, and security was fast and efficient. What more can a traveler ask for?"
Cons: "The executive lounge was a bit crowded. But if that is my only complaint, that’s not too bad. A well designed airport!"
Pros: "-maintenance had to fix an issue that the team was not transparent about for 2.5 hours. 0at least boarding happened swiftly -the male crew member was GREAT but the female crew members two of them were very short, rude, and not there to bring comfort to customers -chicken meal was tasty, but made both me and my father sick. Muffin for breakfast was mediocre as well -tv was good, but touch screen sometimes doesn't work."
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly and afficient onboard service. Fast boarding. On time departure."
Cons: "Croatian Airline checkin service was good but was made to check in carry on. However, baggage clerk was extremely hostile and wanted to charge us for two bags for which we had prepaid. Would not accept our evidence of payment for the two bags. Finally accepted her mistake but Forced to pay 90€ For the extra bag. Ripoff!! Other airlines (Vueling, Air Europa) checked same bag as courtely, did not charge. First and last time flying Austrian."
Cons: "arogant staff, flight canceled, great difficulties to claim my money back"
Pros: "Crew only offered water once during the whole night flight. The entertainment programs regarding games was very restricted, both in terms of game offers as well as operation / handling"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by three hours due to “technical problems“. We were never updated during the weight and when we were told that the flight was canceled everyone was told to go back to the ticketing area to pick up their luggage and to find other options. When we were almost halfway there we were told to turn around and that the flight in fact was not canceled. The food was mediocre at best in the service on the plane was in adequate. They were understaffed and staff to peer to be stressed and fatigued. The seats were small and cramped and not well padded in the economy section. We are going to be flying on Lufthansa in the spring and will hope that their services are better than what we experienced on Austrian air."
Pros: "Make sure your carry on luggage is less then 8 kg. Or you would have to check it at your own cost. The food is OK but the portion is very small. If you want a window or isle seat, it would’ve cost you 30 euro to reserve it. The crew is very nice. I guess because the air fare is very cheap, they need to do everything to make the extra cash."
They did not have my food even though I had ordered earlier. Choice of movies was poor and very limited
Delay with the flight with one day later, and then from Frankfurt 11 h delay, this is unacceptable, what a shame
No way flights should have been suggested or sold with such little time in between for multiple security checks and customs AND terminal changes. All boarding passes were not given by first airline. We had to run in Frankfurt and missed flight in Chicago.
Usually United/Lufthansa is a wonderful airline for my family and I to use. But this trip the crew were horrible and indifferent. Had a couple sitting beside me that where drunk even before they boarded. The crew continued to serve them alcohol knowing this. The lady ended up spilling a whole beer all over me staining my shirt, slacks and socks, soaking me, the seat and the floor. The flight crew couldn’t have cared less. They didn’t even bother to come look or clean up the area. I had to go myself and ask for something to clean up te mess with. Upon asking I was treated like I was bothering them and told to just go to the bathroom and grab a handful of napkins. Absolutely unacceptable. They would even let me change seats to have a dry seat. I had even payed for an upgrade to for legroom on this long flight and we all know that is NOT CHEAP. The final straw was the fact that the crew spen most of their time in the galley in the back. EVERYONE was told if we wanted anything we had to get up and come to the back. They were not even answering the call lights. Horrible, horrible service and attitude from Lufthansa crew members. Thankfully, the dry cleaners will be able to clean my suit….. at MY COST.
I had such a wonderful flight with Lufthansa. The crew was great and I was able to catch some much needed sleep. I look forward to using Lufthansa in the future!
I liked the whole trip was very good. However the food is getting worse and worse in the flight from the state to Frankfort and vice-versa.
Cons: "All god nice flight crew helpful. A well organized flight just what you would expect from a German airline"
Pros: "All great except my seat."
Cons: "Window seat was completely obstructed by wing!! Seat uncomfortable but sat on pillow provided which helped a lot."
Pros: "The flight was adequate."
Cons: "Sandwich was extremely unappetising and there were no hot drinks. The worst thing was that in transiting from the SAA flight to the Lufthansa flight we were obliged to go through security which seems unnecessary. The security staff were awful. Bullying, rude and totally unsympathetic to the fact that having brought water from the first plane to the second plane we had to either drink it or throw it away. One guy in particular, a tall greying man evoked the worst stereotypes of brutal secret policemen. Perhaps he formerly worked for Stasi or he was having testosterone problems. Totally unacceptable behaviour."
Pros: "very good on-board service , good LH crew while checking in i got an upgrade to premium economy very good food ....quite surprised easy check-in , no problem with suitcase that was a bit overweight"
Cons: "arriving in toronto , arrival gate at pearson was blocked by another plane ...so despite being a few minutes early , arrival at the terminal was finally 20min later than scheduled"
People like me who are 6 ft. or taller, do not belong on your planes. Knee room was terrible.
One United employee a little impatient, also on flight WiFi was out for some time. I was happy to receive a complimentary alcoholic beverage for volunteering to check my carry on bag.
Entertainment center only had a USB port, seats very uncomfortable
Very old aircraft and the seats are awful. Boarding was not organized and took forever
Honestly, not very much. The seat was uncomfortable, leg room was unbearable and the entertainment system was not functioning.
Courteous staff. Comfortable aircraft. Excellent pilot communication. Food could have more choice.
Cons: "it took a very long time for take off, and de freezing. That should have been done prior because it made our flight very late arriving in toronto"
Pros: "Got the seats I wanted, movies were good. Staff was friendly"
Cons: "In Montreal they took my carry on bag stating it was too big, I have traveled with it many many times and it always fits except the tiny planes, this was a 787. When I got on the plane many people had larger bags then mine and it was the last bag on the carousel at the other end."
Pros: "Crew, seats and entertainment. Unfortunately a rude passenger in front that put their seat back too far and refused to compromise so didn’t have much leg room over a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Ran out of half the food options halfway down the plane."
Pros: "New "signature" business class is smaller than the old pod, but very functional layout."
Cons: "Food created by Chef Hawksworth is mediocre at best."
Pros: "The crew was great and the food was pretty good (in addition to lunch/dinner, they offered multiple snacks and drink service throughout)."
Cons: "The boarding could definitely be better - customs and an additional security check before the gate was a bit much and caused the flight to depart over 15 minutes late."
Cons: "Departure was slightly late (passengers still exiting the plane when gate was called)"
Cons: "Would have been nice if you didn't have to pay for the soft drink."
Pros: "The ticket was affordable."
Cons: "It was not clear who was or wasn’t supposed to get meals so I only got a breakfast but no dinner. Also the flight was absolutely freezing and no offer of blankets was made."
Pros: "Crew were helpful."
Cons: "I had asked for a Muslim.mealor a vegetarian but there wasn't anything so I had only cheese and fruits which was a disappointment"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "The entaertainment system, TV , movies etc, wasn’t working and they tried and tried but couldn’t get it to work. Not a common occurrence I am sure."
Pros: "The personnel AFTER passport control was wonderful, both airport and United. Passport control workers failed to recognize or help move us through to be able to board in time while they allowed other passengers to go ahead who had same departure. Plane waited 30 mins past take off for us."
Cons: "Brussels airport staff at pass control needed to acknowledge departure concerns to prevent plane delay of takeoff. Many passengers missed their connection in Chicago because of our delay boarding due to pass control wait and lack of help."
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable with decent leg room."
Cons: "My biggest complaint is for the exhorbitant baggage fees—€100 for two bags is ridiculous. Also, one of the crew was rather testy with us when we first boarded (unprovoked), then came to us a few minutes later to say something nice to sort of make up for it."
Pros: "Made up tons of time en route."
Cons: "Usual 737 narrow-ish seat issues. Turbulence, but not a problem anyone could control."
Pros: "Crew were super helpful and friendly. Food was above average for airline food. It was all on schedule. On my return trip - knowing already the confusion with the exit row seat which I explained here, they switched me to the correct exit row without a problem or charge."
Cons: "I tried to book exit row seats online. The seat map would not load, so I called the number suggested. Had a long a confusing conversation with a woman who did not seem to understand what an exit row seat was. I booked seats, but my card was never charged and I received no email confirmation. I tried the website again and this time saw the seat map. Completely misleading. The real exit row is the row IN FRONT of the marked exits on the map. I chose the row which looked like an exit row, and on boarding found that I was in the row behind the exit row. The flight attendant took a photo of my seat map print out, because it was so confusing!!! No wonder the woman I spoke to sounded like she didn't know what she was talking about - she was following the seat map too!"
