Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Everything. All about my flight was great. Thank you."
Cons: "seat size and comfort. Had metal nox take good part of my footroom. small aisle. Food lousy."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "3 hour delay Noisy cabin due to loud engines One could hardly heard the movie audio from the Headphones during movie viewing even after they were replaced"
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "-Puking Child - Puke stayed in the aisle for about 30 minutes and then when the plane landed there was more and it wasn't cleaned up - SO much turbulence for 3 hours and no announcement was made about it. Was slightly concerning. Terrible turbulence"
Cons: "Airbus seats are uncomfortable and with very close pitch. The ground crew was mixed. The woman who helped me with re-seating was very nice . The woman who managed the boarding objected to a standard size carry-on, saying it was large and heavy (even though they didn't weigh it), and United at IAD measured it at under 8 kg) so they took it from me and sent it as luggage. (Fortunately, no extra charge.)"
Cons: "Due to late dinner, was not allow to follow asleep as I needed"
Pros: "efficient boarding pleasant staff punctual"
Cons: "Late leaving HK meant I missed connecting flight!"
Pros: "Everything went really well, including the check-in. I think that the personnel went further than it was necessary to make everyone feel welcomed. Not to mention, that the snack, which was completely unexpected, was delicious. To top it off they gave everybody chocolate to say thanks for flying with them. :-)"
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and worked very hard to keep our stomachs full! I loved all the free movies!"
Pros: "The plane was pretty cool. I like the fact that the overhead compartments had enough room. The staff was friendly, too. The piece of chocolate is very tasty."
Cons: "Food on those airplanes is always bad. There were not enough chicken sandwiches and some passengers only were given cheese sandwiches."
Pros: "Food was great and abundant. Frequent service"
Cons: "Seats are too tight for such a long flight"
Pros: "The crew was polite and continuously offering drinks, headphones and food/snacks. Kept us comfortable and happy during the flight!"
Pros: "Lots of room on the flight, fresh warm bread, lots of water, nice cabin crew"
Cons: "How do I book a vegetarian meal??"
Pros: "Some of the best airplane food I’ve had."
Cons: "Crew was rude and slow"
Pros: "Punctual modern aircraft."
Cons: "The onky bad thing was luggage collection. Belt 6 tucked away. The luggage was so quick coming off that there was no-one to collect it . The belt was soon full and no.more luggage could enter the belt until the luggage on the belt was claimed"
Cons: "Pleasant overall experience"
Cons: "To my shock, my boarding pass while scanning to enter the aircraft was rejected with wild flashing red lights saying my trip was cancelled. Someone else was given my emergency row seat, booked and confirmed 24 hours ahead. It was a full flight but I got a middle seat and continued my long journey home from Kenya"
Pros: "The BUD-ZRH flight was on Swissair aircraft, not on Edelweiss or another low cost feeder airline. Over the years, I have flown both options, and while Edelweiss is a fine carrier, Swissair flights are still a cut above. Contributing to the positive experience was the friendly agent at check-in at BUD."
Cons: "The seats in the economy cabin are cramped together. If the person in front of your leans back you are almost trapped in your seat. There is little leg room and the cushioning is not enough for a long distance flight. There is no boarding control. People just line up and get on the plane in any order."
Pros: "They have a policy of letting kids under 5 board early which was a boon to us! The veggie pasta was really delicious."
Cons: "The delay to fly was the only issue"
Pros: "Ricaro seats often broken and backs don’t stay in the upright position."
Cons: "Food is terrible. The hot pocket meal served at the end of the westbound flight is even more than terrible. The (single) Oreo cookie served for dessert on the eastbound flight is rather disappointing and truely less than one would expect or hope for from a Swiss airline!"
Cons: "That it wasn’t a flight to Denver"
Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "Small seats only 2 bathrooms,"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and re-booked today. We’re so frustrated and inconvenience us. Very stressful! Swiss Air notification in email was sent short of notice."
Pros: "Small screens. Hard to use"
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: "Nice staff, very friendly"
Cons: "Paying for WiFi, could use more comfortable seating"
Pros: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Cons: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and professional. Food and snacks were tasty and Proseseco delicious! Upgraded seats were worth it for a long flight."
Pros: "Swiss chocolate is always welcome!"
Cons: "The food in economy class was one of the worst i have ever got in a flight. The chicken was not cooked completely. One of the side dishes was impossible to identify, perhaps past mixed with bread crumbs, only breadcrumbs, who knows? Ver disappointing for swiss. You were doing so much better in the past..."
Pros: "The food was really great! And the crew was very friendly. Was pleased that everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Check in"
Pros: "The food provided and the service was excellent."
Cons: "The space between the seats are super small and uncomfortable. For a long flight you can barely sleep and your legs hurt after a while."
Cons: "Everything was very good except the TV screen on my wife's seat malfunctioned after the first movie watched. The crew "tried" to fix it but nothing happened, not blaming them specifically but I don't think they were to concerned about one customer with no entertainment. After a long while it started working again. It was a long flight to not have entertainment the whole duration of the flight. Besides this little problem it was a very good flight. Crew very professional and nice."
Pros: "Not anything to rave about. The in-flight entertainment was bland - fortunately the flight was only 2 hours. There were various TV screens that could be seen, but no way to listen. In this case it wasn't a loss because I noticed that they were showing cartoons, even though there were no children on board. The snack was a simple sandwich, a little smaller than the size of a hotdog bun. Supposedly it was an artesian Swiss sandwich, but I think they could have done better. Overall, I'm happy with Swiss Air, and would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Crew, food...."
Cons: "As I said before..."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight overall. Made a long flight seem not so bad."
Cons: "You charge the ticket and my reservation wasn't there!!"
Pros: "Crew is great and took great care of us. Flight was on time and that is always a plus."
Cons: "No entertainment on this plane, which is okay. But even the magazine is pretty lame. Food was ok, although not particularly substantial."
Pros: "The crew (and food to a certain degree) are the only things at the moment that represent a bright side of Swiss Airlines."
Cons: "I have flown with Swiss several times. Every single time, I had to run in between my gates to make it to the connecting flight. And in the process of the turmoil and stress of rushing, I have witnessed airport people being extremely rude with passengers who were not at fault that their original flight was late and were merely trying to make it on time. Correspondingly, every single time I flew with Swiss, I never knew whether or not I will get my luggages. Simply put, your organization is poor and your flights are unfailingly late!!"
Pros: "Flight was good and comfortable"
Pros: "It's fine no comment"
Pros: "Crew was sympathetic to the awful seats"
Cons: "Just fly had access to the worst seats and we could not change them."
Pros: "The children had easy entertainment at their hands. The planes were clean and comfortable. The food had a Swiss touch and the chocolates are always welcome in my family."
Pros: "Nice crew, clean seats, good food..."
Cons: "TERRIBLE customer service, barely spoke English over the pho ne. Bought the tickets on April 1 and immediately called to make a reservation for my dog. They made the reservation. Couldn't answer regulations for transporting pets, had to dig up rules and regulations online myself. Made a reservation the same day for the dog and they never sent a confirmation. Went to their office at Pearson and they had no clue as well. Two days before the flight they called to tell me my dog can't fly due to unknown reasons and created a MAJOR nightmare. I paid $400 for papers and cage for the dog only. Very very unprofessional and will NEVER fly with Turkish Airlines again!!!"
Pros: "I got such an amazing deal on this flight that I could barely believe how incredible my experience was. Will DEFINITELY fly Turkish Airlines again!!"
Cons: "No problems at all"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled then stood for hours in a line just for a hotel room. Then waited in hotel room till afternoon the next day with no news. Horrible way to handle customers"
Pros: "The traditional hospitality I got in flight was quite unique. Many things change but some things always remain the same. Some may call it old fashioned or not modern but then I am an old fashioned guy. It was like stepping back in time when things were always so much nicer."
Cons: "Istanbul airport was very very busy and some places were not working very efficiently (security scan when you go from the plane to the transit lounge). The departure gate was overflowing in the waiting areas and the bus ride to the plane was very crowded. Aside from this Istanbul airport and the transit lounge were very pleasant."
Cons: "Coach seats provide minimal leg room, and even less when seats are reclined."
Pros: "The food and the entertainment selection on Turkish Airlines is good."
Cons: "Boarding procedures were not directed in an organized manner by Turkish Airlines staff. The gate staff need training in how to direct the boarding session i.e. passengers needing assistance first (seniors, families with children under 6), then business class, then Group A, Group B etc. These categories are used by other airlines for good reason - they regulate the flow of people onto the aircraft and prevent out-of-control crowding at the boarding counter. People with legitimate right to board first understandably become irate. In addition, on the flight from Istanbul to Abuja there was an unexpected stop in Tunis. Passengers were not advised of this stop in advance. Even upon arrival in Tunis it took about 15 minutes for an announcement over the loudspeaker system to explain what was going on and the new arrival time in Abuja etc. This is not acceptable as all passenger need to advise those meeting them on arrival of any delay. My office staff waited at the airport in Abuja for 3+ hours which would have been unnecessary with sufficient notice. Airline staff and crew also need more English training to properly serve passengers going to international destinations."
Pros: "Great service and quality from Turkish Air."
Cons: "Seat was not comfortable, no complimentary snacks were provided."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great except the cabin temperature was entirely too hot. The service was friendly, the food was good, the seat was comfortable."

Pros: "Awesome food. Comfortable seats. Nice crew"
Cons: "New Istambul airport requires walking 20-25 minutes when arriving and the same amount when departing. Even if huge you need to take a bus a walk under the rain. Bad planning"
Pros: "Food was great, service was also amazing."
Cons: "The seats are so small and so uncomfortable, it almost made the 11hr flight unbeatable"
Pros: "Turkish Air’s boarding is very good and their food and entertainment is good"
Cons: "I have flown many international miles and many with Turkish Air. I have seen them go backwards as an airline these past 9 years. No more Premium Economy and very small seats, no more hot towels b4 takeoff, unbearably hot cabins, no good snacks on long flights, etc."
Cons: "Luggage handling could be a lot better. Two out of four of my bags were damaged beyond repair"
Pros: "Boarding and traveling comfort was good .As always staff were very good and attentive.Food not very good snd boring."
Pros: "Turkish Airline is really good at making safety videos. Istanbul Atatürk Airport is hands down the best airport in the world."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The seats are so crammed together and for 11 hour flight it became quite uncomfortable after a few hours"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Way too hot. It felt like we couldn’t breathe the first 90 minutes of the flight it was so hot. Then we kind of got used to it. Bathrooms were dirty and the whole plane smelled of pee. Awful experience."

Cons: "A little pricey."
Cons: "Having trailer, but not movie"

Missed connection to Manchester. Paid for my own hotel room overnight in Paris CDG. Flight will arrive a day late in Manchester. That means I have missed my flights from Manchester to UK with Air Lingus (booked through Kayak website) It seems I must now purchase a new ticket to get home from Manchester to Nashville.

Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable in this kind of plane. As we were doing a connecting flight we were also tired."
Cons: "Long flight"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"

Cons: "Slow ticketing process and not so friendly staff."
Pros: "Excellent service and food."
Cons: "The fact that they gave my Aunt a hard time about the tickets that was bought for her, because we did not know that when a heavy person books a flight that they need one ticket and a xtra seat, but instead of working with her because she had two tickets they were very rude to her and told her she was not going to be able to come to america that when she got to Manchester she would have to go back to Germany. We were never told what happened to the other ticket since it was not used."
Pros: "Direct flight, separate spacious toilets, decent food"
Cons: "It's a good flight overall"
Pros: "Very accomdating crew"
Pros: "I really appreciated the hostesses bringing around glasses of juice or water especially during the night . The selection of movies to watch was excellent. I liked a lot that the restroom was on a different floor and there was plenty of space outside. Thank you."

Pros: "Timeliness, clean cabin, professional service."
Cons: "Climbing latters to board."
Cons: "thet lost my bag. two days later still not reunited. pasta dinner was horribly pasty"
Cons: "747 with 10 across seating in cattle car class. Seats way too narrow and the pitch was way too short. NEVER AGAIN."

Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Best on flight meals I've had. Great crew. USB charging."
Cons: "The economy class on a 747 is way too crowded. Internet access was very expensive (€17/day). I wish the on board TV, which showed live soccer could have had a way too see live news: specifically the presidential debate."
Cons: "Old plane, slow crew"
Pros: "Helpful crew Good food"
Cons: "Our luggage came back damaged and open !"
Pros: "The crew is brilliant Punctual, spot on... 100% service delivery"

Pros: "Airbus 330 from Manchester to SFO was new, spacious and very comfortable. One of the best flights we’ve had across the pond."

Pros: "The crew were nice and the service very good. The layover was short."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost so we had to go back to the airport the day after. In economy class the Last 3 central rows or even more, have no carryon storage. We were stuck with our carryons for over 7 hours during the flight Montreal Munich. This is the case if you fly their new A350-390."
Pros: "Not and horrible waited for 10hour before we board the last journey"
Cons: "Is horrible will not use kayak again we want to change the flight we were told not changeable"
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Could not check in online or get seat reservations in advance (other flights for journey allowed us to choose seats when we booked flights). This meant we were sitting separately and groundstaff suggested we were on standby, which we definitely weren't! Very irritating and unnecessary."
Cons: "Impossible to do beter."
Cons: "Highly recommended for efficiency"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Stop overcharge people for 1 luggage :( very disappointed"
Cons: "I was trying to extend my ticket but no one was answering my call last 2 days so I misssed my flight no refund nothing"

Pros: "Not a long flight, overhead lockers had space although I wasn't helped to find somewhere. Crew lovely otherwise."
Cons: "Boarding from a connecting flight wasn't enough time, esp as our duty free purchases were selected for additional screening. Food was identical to what we had been offered on previous flight, and the outbound one."
Pros: "on time, great cabin crew"
Cons: "(1) The captain collected headsets 30 minutes before landing, causing us to miss the last 15 minutes of a movie. Why? (2) Very long cues for toilet use. (3) The baggage took more than half hour to arrive. (4) The chair in front of me reclined very far (more than those on its sides), making it very hard to eat, get up, or read. Need better maintenance."
Cons: "There was hardly any communication about the delay."
Cons: "I didn’t like selection on movies"

Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "Lots of entertainment options but most were pretty dated and stale"
Pros: "Good staff and food."
Cons: "Flight was late and boarding was unorganized. When the person sitting in front of me moved their chair it hit my head and moved all my stuff, this should not happen. We should not feel our area moved because the person moved their seat in front of us."
Pros: "Not much at all"
Cons: "I was enquiringly about the transfer of my luggage from the Hurghada flight with sunexpress with one of the Lufthansa correspondents at the central fest and the guy was absolutely clueless. Needless to say- our luggage wasn’t in Manchester when we arrived. Had to travel back to Manchester to collect it 8 hours later as it was left in Munich. Not happy one bit"
Pros: "Service, food, and entertainment was great!"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Efficient service."

Pros: "The entertainment options were great, The plane was very clean and the bathrooms was HUGE!"
Cons: "uncomfortable seat, off set from the seat in front of me so my entertainment screen was at an odd angle to watch. Food was ok but they had a sauce on the chicken that was not very appetizing. It actually made my wife sick and lets just say she did not keep her dinner. Also, I asked for a scotch after take off and it was a small shot and after dinner I asked for another and it was just a whisper. It did not even cover one ice cube. It would have been nice to get at least a full shot."
Cons: "The passenger behaind, was a tall guy. All the 7 hours flight i had to fight him to allow me puting my back sest dowm on his hearting legs. Why didnt hay extra and seat where it fits his size?"
Pros: "Excellent service by the staff"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I was sitting at the tale end. Seat was extremely uncomfortable. I was trying to rest yet flight attendants and several passengers were talking loud. Crews kept forgetting passengers orders/requests. A lady sitting besides me pushed a call bottom 3 times to get noticed. Flight attendants were too busy chatting with passengers to help other passengers. I have never seen that type of services before."
Pros: "Premium economy gives you extra confort, more space to sleep better."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 40 minutes."
Pros: "Everything! The service of the flight attendants, in full ugh entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great. I would say that I didn't like the automation and self serve check in at Munich Airport not because it wasn't easy or efficient, but because I love human interactions. I know this is the way society is tending, towards automation, but I don't love it. I prefer to speak to a real person. Thank you for reading."
Pros: "Changed planes, flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "By the time my daughter got through security the gate had closed and her ticket didn't allow for any opportunity for her to get another flight. Would not book again using Lastminute.com, nor Lufthansa, as they provided a lack of service and no help for her to change her flight - even though the ticket was nearly €200 and she was clearly distressed and upset."
Pros: "Overall, was good!"
Pros: "as usual flight itself was okay"
Cons: "no major complaints"
Cons: "I wasn't sitting next to my partner and we sat on the Tarmac for 45 minutes after the flight was already delayed by 30 minutes."
Pros: "early arrival,comfort"
Cons: "late boarding while standing around waiting for pilot to ararive"
Cons: "My family of five spent a lovely week in Sardinia. Our return flight took us through Rome. We were boarded an hour ahead of departure from Rome for our 10+ hour flight, only to be held on the ground for a one hour delay. Barring equipment malfunction, this is a totally unacceptable way to treat people. Be assured that I will avoid Rome in the future if at all possible. I trust that Rome nor Italy need my tourist dollars and there are many lovely other places to spend them. Exceedingly disappointed, Pam Just"
Pros: "During my first flight from East Midlands England to Amsterdam I lost my baggage by another airlines and the KLM crew was very dedicated and supportive until they found it and check in for me... Many thanks and I wouldn't forget it."
Pros: "The long flight"
Cons: "The long flits"
Pros: "entertainment options"
Cons: "lack of USB or other power outlet to charge my own devices, poor responsiveness from crew, skimpy breakfast (it was a way-too-salty quiche), tighter seat options than my first leg of the flight"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and the airplane was very impressive although we travelled using Kenya airways"
Cons: "In Paris we were not properly directed to where the flight was departing."
Pros: "I fly AMS to MAN regularly for work. There are a number of providers, but KLM far exceed the experience offered by low cost airlines, often for the same price even at short notice. You get a drink and snack; and at no annoying sales announcements. Miles club membership is free, even if you don't fly regularly well worth it as it halves the cost of cost of checked baggage. Peaceful airline with no hidden costs during booking."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process. Clunky landing."
Cons: "Cabin was cold we had a blanket which did help a bit Not much room to have your meals etc"
Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."
Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"
Cons: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Appropriate and efficiently served snack."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."
Cons: "Delay due to strike"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."
Pros: "The crew was informative"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and seats were comfy."
Cons: "Headphones for the entertainment centre.could have been better. Sound quality not great."

Cons: "There was no entertainment on the flight from Vancouver to Amsterdam and this on top of a two hour delay in taking off which led us to have to literally run to our gate in Amsterdam to make the connection to Mumbai"
Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"
Pros: "Crew was very engaging and service was good."
Cons: "My seat was horrible. Right at the door, crammed, and no place to store my carry-on luggage."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything was good except for the entertainment consul for one of our seats."
Cons: "One of our entertainment consuls had to be rebooted 4 times and still didn’t work. We gave up asking."

Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. I travel KLM often and always enjoy the flights."
Cons: "There were several flight delays and gates were changes a few times."
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."

Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."

Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Pros: "Nice seats, comfortable."
Cons: "Again, no aisle seat for SkyTeam Gold member. Also, my baggage was lost. First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me.

There was a spread some olives and then a spinach pie and they were cold and not appetizing. Next my luggage did not make it to ATL with me it stayed in Dublin and I ended up not getting it until 2 days later.

Cons: "Although Air France sold me a return ticket from Zurich to Edinburgh via Paris CDG both connections in CDG were very tight and needed me to run between terminals. They say you can make it within the 50 min change over but it is really pushing it. One and a half hours would be better. My incoming flight was delayed by 15 mins and the plane parked off stand and we were bused to the terminal. That all left just 20 mins to get from the bus to the departure gate having to clear passport control and security. Ran to the gate with seconds to spare."

Had to new walk in the sweltering heat to the plane can climb up steep stairs in the heat! We were now kept in the plane for another hour with no aircondotion. It was boiling hot in there. We had to use the safety manuals to fan ourselves. We eventually left late and got to Lagos one and half hours we were meant to get there. Lastly not all the luggage arrived. Two days into my arrival and I am yet to get all my luggage. It was truly a horrible experience which was echoed by fellow passengers."
