Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The entertainment consoles are great, plane is modern and clean, staff on board are very considerate and helpful. Flight left and landed on time and our luggage arrived intact. Everything that we paid for we got."
Cons: "The space between the seats is very small, and the seats recline very far, I found myself a bit too tall to fit in them comfortably, as even reclined my neighbors seat was nearly pressed against my nose. My much shorter girlfriend did not have this problem, and slept through the whole flight. SWISS only has one or two check in agents at LAX, and the wait was about 3hr to process the 300-odd passengers on our 777. I know they're only running a flight or two a day from LA, but I am sure there's a speedier and more efficient way to check us all in."
Cons: "At the moment I bought the tickets, I got in contact with SWISS in order to book the seats and a baby bes for a small baby. However, I was told by the contact center that it was not possible to book seats (not even buying them). I have also tried to do it online, without success. One day before departure, I called again and got the same answer and was told to book seats and baby bes during the check-in at the airport. At the moment of the check-in in Dubai, I was informed exactly the opposite: that I should have requested it via contact center or online up to 48h before the flight!! Personnel at the airport was very impolite. Inside the plan, the crew was very nice and helped us to have seats in front with a small bed for the baby."
Pros: "Great service, very good selection of on-board entertainment"
Cons: "Long delay in boarding and take off was not addressed in any kind of announcement. Food is average"
Cons: "The ventilation didnt work on the connection from zurich to belgrade, it was like an oven in the plan and people were complaining, but nothing was done."
Cons: "Old business class seats, not comfortable when lying flat; small media screen"
Cons: "No plug for phone charging."
Pros: "I like"
Pros: "No issues. Loved it."
Pros: "Food was better than most domestic airlines. Flight times (arrival & departure) are good. Flight is the quickest way to travel from South Florida to Zurich."
Cons: "Economy seat was very narrow and leg room was minimal. Lucky I am not a big person. Anyone over 5'9" would be miserable. Maybe the new Boeing 777 airplanes Swiss air is buying will have better seating."
Pros: "On time and mostly friendly crew"
Cons: "No soap in 3 out of 4 bathrooms - flight attendant said just push harder on dispenser."
Cons: "Boarding is a free for all, no system"
Cons: "Seats had no legroom, no choice of food given for dinner, and was just offered a veg wrap"
Pros: "Your crew was excellent and attentive. Nice difference from most US domestic airlines"
Pros: "Great food, no turbulence, great service and my skis flew for free!"
Cons: "If anything could be done about turbulence, that would be terrific. The pilot did great though throughout the flight."
Cons: "We were unable to checkin online 24 hours before the flight and although I have Frequent Traveller status with the airline and booked a normal ticket on the Swiss website, I was booked in the second to last row of the airplane and unable to change my seat. Unacceptable."
Cons: "The tv and music did not work."
Pros: "No delays seat was small but flight was not full"
Cons: "Seat arms would not lift to vertical"
Pros: "The flight from San Francisco to Zürich with Swiss was a very positive experience (better than last time!) The flight attendants were very responsive and friendly, the food was really good (for airline food!), the wine, too, and the entertainment selection was excellent (and everything worked.) I'll find out how the return flight compares at the end of February...Thank you, Swiss!"
Pros: "Good price Friendly staff Punctual departure and arrival as advertised Auto check in and electronic boarding pass"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic Front of plane boarded first and blocked corridor for rear based passengers. Food options difficult with dental apparatus, a soft meal option would be great."
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive flight attendants who takes time to talk and care about their customers needs. Add to this their attention to keeping the WC spotless clean."
Pros: "Flight departure and arrival on time"
Cons: "Poor quality food in business class !!!"
Pros: "Old plane, bad entertainment system, no electric plug for PC, cramped seats..."
Pros: "The ease of boarding and unboarding."
Cons: "There was no water provided during the night, except by going to get it myself from the attendants."
Pros: "The beef stew was great. Great inflight service."
Cons: "My inflight remote control needed replacement. However it did work."
Pros: "very friendly joyous crew. the timing of boarding was fine and all of that."
Cons: "only one bag permitted on an international flight, old plane and seats led for quite a hard time to get comfy"
Cons: "I am a 6'3" adult male, and I am barely able to sit in an economy seat for an 8-9 hour flight. When the person in front of me reclined her seat, my kneecaps were crushed. I am hardly the first person to express this complaint, but since you asked..."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and nice. The plane was specious with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "No electronic boarding pass. The food was horrible and almost nothing left when they got to my seat. On top of it, duty free shops closed for this flight 90 minutes prior to departure. Not possible to get within that time when you have to wait for a boarding pass."
Pros: "I really enjoyed Swiss flight. Especially, I liked that the food part. It was enought indeed. Moreover, food was delicious. Movie part was very very exciting as well. Thank you very much!"
Pros: "SWISS aircrafts are always very clean, the crew smiling, the boarding orderly. The seats might not be out of the ordinary but comfortable enough."
Cons: "There's a long way before entertainment reaches what can be often found in Asia. I'm not sure why they still bother with the same old animated cartoons. At least, providing power in the seats would be nice, at best, streaming content via Wifi."
Pros: "Absolutely everything was first rate, as it consistently is."
Cons: "Had a delay and changed all my itinerary"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Seats are very close to each other. I barely had any room, especially once the person in front of me reclined. The entertainment system looks to be very old. It had to be reset at one point because it froze, and everyone was without the system for a while."
Pros: "Flight made good time despite 1 hour departure delay. Was worried I wouldn't make my connection but my transfer gate was right by my arrival gate, very well planned, someone's obviously paying attention, which doesn't happen often these days."
Cons: "Tiny seats! Mediocre food and movie choices weren't great. On the upside, I ended up watching an Italian movie (English subtitles) that was interesting and never would've seen otherwise."
Pros: "Service is pleasant and efficient. Flight arrived 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Economy is so cramped. My son couldn't eat his meal because the person in front of him had his seat reclined and there was simple no space left. I don't think economy seats in this cabin should even recline and if they must, they certainly should forbid it during meal times. The entertainment system on this particular aircraft is tired. Non-intuitive and a bit hard to use. I have flown on a lot of Swiss flights and most of the aircraft have a better system."
Cons: "Basically no legroom. No USB port to charge phone. Sloppy service (I was skipped for breakfast). Couldn't even open the tray table fully due to lack of room between rows. Swissair NEVER again"
Cons: "I usually fly from MIA to ZRH. Swiss tickets are by far the highest. Despite that, you have to pay extra to book a seat or to sit next to your partner. I elected not to pay and ended up in a middle seat in the last row, next to kitchen and toilet... Very frustrating experience. Next time I will buy. The cheapest ticket, can't be worse than Swiss. Sorry."
Cons: "Due to late dinner, was not allow to follow asleep as I needed"
Cons: "The fact that there were approximately 4 inches between my face and the head-rest of the man reclined in front of me for the ENTIRE flight. Imagine you are packed into a mason jar for 8-10 hours with an inconsiderate human resting the top of their head 4 inches from your lips for an entire flight from Chicago to Zurich."
Cons: "We couldn't fly Zurich - Malaga due to a 5 hour delay in our first flight : Washington DC- Zurich. We lost our connection and United (who operated the fight) reschedule our flight wrong first of all, our names didn't appear in Zurich to Madrid flight, and it wasn't enough time to do the connection between Madrid Malaga, so we have to spend one night in Madrid. In addition we lost our luggage. They've ruined our vacations."
Pros: "Outstanding service by flight attendants who, in addition, speak multiple languages."
Cons: "Armrests did not fully retract between seats and remained in the way."
Pros: "The crew, the plane, the seat. Great service. Will definitely fly again with Swiss"

Cons: "food qualıty not comparable to other servıces"

Pros: "Pleasant, polite attendees. Unlimited drinks"
Pros: "comfy seats"
Pros: "good schedule - direct flight from HKG midnight arriving ZRH early morning"
Cons: "while most of the other star alliance planes have large flat HD touch screens, SWISS still has the old small ones and the system always crash.. food is the same bad as ever, never improvement (well, in that way, you always know what you're getting)"
Pros: "Comfortable and well laid out seat area"
Cons: "Food was a little substandard for business class"
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."

Cons: "That it didn’t happen."
Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"
Pros: "Wifi on Board"
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."
Pros: "The crew were hardworking, responsive, conscientious and friendly"
Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."
Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"
Cons: "2 hours on the tarmac delayed with no explanation. Uncomfortable seats, no leg room. Poor management of seating, there was enough empty seats to have groups together but they were split up. Drinks served from a communal bottle in a polystyrene cup."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and professional. Promp response to calling for attention."
Cons: "Wish there was better lumbar support for the seats. The food could be a bit more exciting with simple addition of lime pickles. Overall can not complain for economy standard!"
Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Food was good!"
Cons: "Have no complaints"
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."

Pros: "was very quick"
Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."
Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."
Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Cons: "magazines very dog eared and some badly torn"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"
Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
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: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."
Pros: "We really liked the KLM people, from the check in crew to the flight attendants."
Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."
Pros: "Space for legs unlike ryanair"
Cons: "They lost my suitcase. I’m on vacation without winter clothes and they don’t look for my suitcase. It has been a horrendous experience. Never again I will flight in Aer Lingus!!!!"
Pros: "Great seats plenty of leg room"
Cons: "The food... Yikes"
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning"
Pros: "Flight delayed, we boarded by bus vey far away from the track, in he midddle of nowhere. It was pouring and we had to wait our while boarding the stairs, when there was many many fingers To board available, just nonsense. Then, furthermore, one of the flight attendants rushed us in bad manners. 40 more minutes sitting in the plane, just waiting to take off, again, ridiculous. To top it all off, we waited almost 2 hours in Dublin airport for the luggage since supposedly There was a mal function from the cargo door of the plane, where we only received little Bits of information when we all complained"
Cons: "The boarding and deplaning was awful'"
Pros: "Cold air was on for the entire flight, despite it being 4 degrees outside"
Pros: "Swift boarding process, mannerly stewards"
Cons: "When landed, the back door of the aircraft was opened, despite passengers only disembarking form the front. It was very cold."
Cons: "Broken seats, headphone socket not working, smell of aviation fuel in cabin and then our luggage did not arrive at our final destination."
Cons: "they charged me 100 dollars to check a bag - nothing at all about this during my purchase. i am so mad at these guys."
Pros: "The destination, the time and direct flight."
Cons: "When I got to check in at the airport I found out I had to pay $100 per bag. This was never told to me when booking. I was also made aware that if I had booked my bag when I checked in on line each bag would have been 75$ . Of course I hadn't checked in on line and this was a huge surprise."
Pros: "Food, crew"
Cons: "No wine for economy class on a nine hour flight?"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Everything else! No entertainment. Charged you for everything! Water! Coffee which was instant, not even brewed. Plane was older than dirt. Worn interior."
Pros: "Check in, boarding and flight all great"
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "The entertainment selections are extremely limited and poor. Food is mediocre and not even comparable to other international Airlines business class standards"
Pros: "the timeliness of the airline in leaving and arriving at the ports, providing meals for the passengers,"
Cons: "breakfast was not given to some of us as the air hostesses said that they ran out of food"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very old aircraft. Single aisle narrrow bodied"
Pros: "Fast and efficient crew"
Cons: "A going-through-the-paces flight and incredibly expensive beer and wine."
Cons: "90 minutes stranded on the tarmac with no explanation. Not the way you start a trip. While the fact of being stranded was out of the control of Aer Lingus, communication was not."
Pros: "Crew were very nice"
Cons: "Chaotic mele in the cabin as people used both entrances and met in the middle."
Pros: "On time. Reached early"
Cons: "No compliments of drinks"
Pros: "Punctuality and cost"
Pros: "Dublin airport easy to transfer Price was top I did not eat the lunch"
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable seats, okay food."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't great. The earphones quality was quite bad and felt really uncomfortable. Unfortunately, AerLingus still has that double pronged plugs and I wasn't able to use my personal set (actually, I could but sound would only work on one side). I'll definitely fly with them again, only next time I'll bring an attachment for me to be able to use my headphones."
Pros: "Overall very. I was there when the check station was down caused delays. But staff were very helpful."
Cons: "Getting through security check very slow. Not sure what the answer is but need to be looked urgently. Otherwise I enjoyed everything.. P.kehoe..sunnybank Farm.. Portersize.. Grange con.. Co. Kildare"
Pros: "Check in in Dusseldorf was easy, bit they made up for it in Dublin!! In Dublin the check in and information desk of air lingus were awuful. Full of attitude and absolutely no knowledge."
Cons: "Air Lingus is awful! It had 1:20 hours delay that resulted in missing the second flight."
Pros: "Staff quite friendly Nice plane. Had 3 seat to myself"
Cons: "Once again I had no choice of meal as my seat was at the last row"
Pros: "Nothing. I flew with West Jet. Their review shall be posted on their forum"
Cons: "The abrupt cancellation"
Pros: "relatively generous baggage allowances"
Cons: "Total absence of food and drink"
Pros: "nil unfortunately"
Cons: "waiting in three different lines for over two hours with one person serving! Paying for my baggage (under20kgs) with my flight then being forced into paying again at the airport because they said they did not have my details on their system. being forced to go to another line and que up to pay a second time for my baggage to be taken onto the airport. Going back to another line to put my baggage in and show the receipt for the baggage that had been paid for twice. Going to the next (another) line with one person serving - several Dublin passengers in the que and a line that as about 100mts long- yes about 100 metres long with one person serving without any Lingus staff coming to see if all was ok . No help no announcements nothing. sitting in a plane for an hour and a half with three children under the age of four crying, screaming and yelling all the way without a thing being said by any of the crew. A little is ok, but three families with young children with no support from the crew was not pleasant"
Pros: "From Brussels to Dublin, we had a good flight. The air hostess was attentive enough and the cabin comfort was excellent."
Cons: "That we can't even have a cup of coffee without having to pay 3 euros. I thought that was outrageous."
Pros: "They were really good with my daughter who was very scared of flying"
Pros: "From the moment I arrived I felt very taken care of. Plenty of seating in lounge, with many of them facing runway. People were friendly and accommodating. Food was average. On aircraft, the staff was outstanding."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane was great compared to Ryan air"
Cons: "I don't like that I must travel to Dublin from cork to fly to Amsterdam for a cheaper flight"
Cons: "3.5 hr delay due to mechanical issues. Missed connecting flight."
Pros: "Punctual and on time"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "------- we were very cold on the plane . ."
Pros: "Have traveled many long haul flights with various airlines in past 6 months. The Aer Lingus food was significantly better than the others. Very tasty."
Cons: "Not enough seating at gate in Dublin and the space needs updating. A complimentary beer or wine with the meals, as provided by other carriers, would be nice."
Pros: "What do you say about that loses you luggage both directions. It isn't reliable so that's it for me with aer Linus."
Pros: "Everything except the amt of room"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Pleasant crew, efficient boarding, comfortable seats. Food was good as was the wine I purchased."
Cons: "First set of earphones didn't work properly. Second set was better, but sound quality was still weak. Had dual prong outlets, so couldn't use my own. Entertainment offerings were decent, but not great compared to other airlines."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."
Pros: "All was perfect"
Pros: "USA immigration at Dublin aerport"
Cons: "Buying drinks st ridiculous high prices on the flight. Sests with restricted legroom because of entertainment boxes."
Cons: "Food wasn't very enjoyable. Breakfast was very disappointing."
Pros: "Service was great, everyone was really helpful"
Pros: "Rerouted through London, added five hours to trip"
Cons: "Flight was late out of Toronto making eight people miss the Glasgow connection. Remaining Glasgow flights for the day were full. Aer lingus staff at customer service seemed confused on what to do with us. Finally, after talking to a manager they offered to route us through London to Glasgow. Very frustrating, not sure why they couldn't hold the Glasgow flight to accommodate all of us? It would of been a lot easier for us!!"
Pros: "The plane was nice and I truly loved the movies offered on board."
Cons: "I wasn’t aware of the fact you need to order your food prior to departure to get it on board."
Pros: "Good legroom."
Cons: "2 late evening flights booked with Icelandair. BOTH flights were then cancelled, leaving us with an extra 2 nights of unplanned stopovers. Today’s flight then departed a further 90 minutes behind schedule. Can’t comment on the food - didn’t feel like paying Icelandic prices for the last time."
Pros: "We didn't crash so that's a bonus."
Cons: "Well first off it was a connector flight from Toronto to Reykjavik to Oslo to Tromso, Norway. The first leg was delayed and then they lost my baggage, which happens, I get it. But then due to the delayed flight and lost baggage I missed my connection to Tromso. Then apparently neither airline can do anything to help me so I lose my entire flight cost because I booked through a third party. So I had to rebook a new flight at a premium cost just to get where I needed to go or risk losing my whole vacation. On top of that the baggage they lost is my backpack...hard to go backpacking across Norway with no backpack. Then they ship the backpack to the wrong airport, incorrectly wrote down my wrong cell number so they couldn't even call me...one cluster f*ck after another."
Pros: "Even though they changed my seats without asking i found tbat on two legs i had more leg room."
Cons: "Flight was late. Had to run to connection. Never said the connecting gate or plane being held. Very limited movie selection. Woyld like crew to come through at least one more time in the over seas portion of the flight."
Cons: "Our flight to Reykjavík landed 30 minutes before our connecting flight to Zurich was scheduled to depart. we got off the plane and ran to the gate with several other passengers to catch our flight. The crew closed the gate and would not let us board even though the plane was still there. Other airlines wait for passengers from a connecting flight. This is unacceptable and we will never fly Icelandair again."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Crew was great"
Cons: "No games o the entertainment system"
Pros: "The planes are really comfortable and I like the Aurora lights in the deck heads. Good movies. Nice free water."
Cons: "The queue for bag drop was massive! There were so many people around that it was hard to get in the right queue and not much direction. I spent over 90 mins waiting to drop my bag and then had to sprint through the airport to get my flight. Thankfully the rest of the airport is very efficient."
Pros: "Efficient short connection in Reykjavik. Also the luggage made it to the next flight."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "There is only a serve of drink, headset need to pay"
Cons: "The bag check in process was unorganized. The bag belt was not working and out bags were left outside of the counter. They were not scanned in and did not make the flight even though we arrived at the airport 3 hours before boarding. It is very disappointing to get to Iceland and not have clothing to go explore. We are hopeful the bags will arrive before we leave."
Cons: "Didn’t exist"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, very uncomfortable compared to other airlines."
Cons: "food and drink is a nickel and diam which doesn’t go with the brand."
Pros: "I really enjoyed flying with Iceland Air. One bag included for check in with ticket - which can be hard to come by these days. As well, the plane was brand new, leather seats and entertainment system. There was water and a blanket waiting for you at your seat once you boarded. They were very efficient and the crew made the trip a pleasant journey. Would highly recommend!"
Pros: "The connecting flights (had mostly co-passengers all hurrying to the next flight) waited for us - thank you!"
Cons: "with that many flights coming through this airport, I would have expected better organization to shuffle us through. While the voice announcements were frequent and clear, the signage was less so. Food at airport is expensive."
Cons: "There was no food on the flight provided"
Pros: "Punctual and no toilet line ups"
Cons: "Seats were hard and food was very expensive."
Cons: "My boarding pass had me in row 9, at boarding they pushed me back to row 34, the last row on the plane. And the flight attendant was a little heavy, couldn't walk passed without bumping me. So much for sleeping."
Pros: "I need a cheap flight and at the time that was my best bet. Didn't have a bad time but next time I will fly direct from the US."
Cons: "Seats were so so, leg room was barely substantial. Iceland is expensive even on a layover. Layover was a bit more excruciating on the second leg."
Pros: "I need a cheap flight and at the time that was my best bet. Didn't have a bad time but next time I will fly direct from the US."
Cons: "Seats were so so, leg room was barely substantial. Iceland is expensive even on a layover, thankfully it wasn't very long."
Pros: "Having more leg room. Smaller plane. Short transit time."
Cons: "Being charged for a $10 meal after paying $100s for a ticket"
Pros: "Boarding was good and crew were pleasant"
Cons: "All bathrooms were out on the plane for the final 2 hours. You have to pay for any food you would like."
Cons: "I've travelled to 40 countries in my life and this is the FIRST time on a international flight that I was NOT given ( free ) food."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment was excellent. We are both tall and we offered longer legroom seats at checking! Only good for purchase on board so we are before boarding. We purchased a light snack on the second leg of the trip. It hit the spot. Blankets and pillows were provided."
Cons: "It was all good!"
Cons: "How can an international flight not have a single snack or beverage offered without a fee?"
Pros: "All passengers made it."
Cons: "Significant amount of bags never made it to ZRH"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, I slept the whole way."
Pros: "This airline has so much going for it!... Pleasant staff, nice touches for overnight flight (bottled water as we entered the plane, pillow, blanket), plenty of legroom, TVs in the seat backs that work perfectly! What a treat!"
Cons: "Entertainment needs an upgrade"
Cons: "not enough liquids served"
Pros: "On board entertainment was good (i.e., movies, shows, etc.)"
Cons: "No food was served."
Cons: "It took three attempts to land. First Manchester, then Liverpool and finally (after declaring a fuel emergency) back at Manchester. Everyone knew a storm was brewing so why didn't the plane have extra fuel on board in case of a diversion?"
Pros: "I liked the in flight movie selection."
Cons: "There were so many things wrong with our flight from Gatwick to NYC. The check in staff were rude and homophobic at check in, forcing my partner and I to separate for check in while we watched heterosexual partners check in together freely. The disabled toilet alarm broke as we descended into NYC and we listened to end-of-the-world death sirens as we were landing. It was not communicates that food was a microtransaction on flight and was so overpriced so we went nearly 13 hours without food because the flights were also delayed on the tarmac. The de-icing tow truck in Iceland was broken down so we were delayed two hours on the layover. On return, both Icelandair gates opened late. During the layover we were kettled in hot container units before 20 min before being bussed to the plane and held for 15 minutes. Then, the icing on the cake was landing back at Gatwick and seeing my brand new luggage I bought on the trip damaged with thr back pocked ripped out along the bottom seam. I will never again ride with these rude, price-gouging, apathetic amateurs."

Pros: "Quick, efficieny, comfy and they really treat the kids well."
Cons: "Delayed baggage reclaim at Gatwick and long immigration lines."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Avoid if you prefer being able to sit down."
Pros: "Flight good. Missed the pay for food trolley, so didn't eat."
Cons: "Reykavic airport has the least amenities I have ever experienced. Very few seats in the lounge. Most are forced to stand or lie on the floor. Don't think that getting through the gate will mean getting on plane, it's too another waiting room with a few seats, mainly standing. The airport has no seated restaurants or cafes. So getting off a plane hungry id not pleasant. I will never again fly to and from New York via this 'airport'"
Pros: "Smiling faces. Politeness Helpful"
Cons: "With 2 Samaung notes and 1 Tabley and 1 Lenovo PC failed to get wifi on 1st leg? Why? To Reykavik! ! Flight stewardess also failed!! With help of crew to ZH got the net halfway on second leg ...!"
Cons: "Dear Seema, We spoke just now. I had booked a flight from Reykjavik to Stockholm (via Copenhagen) through Kayak.com for 2 passengers, Tushar Kamat (myself) & Priyanka Kamat (my wife). I had indicated a travel date of 6th Oct during my booking, but for some strange reason,, the ticket got issued for 4th Sep (yesterday). My credit card also got charged for the full amount and I received an e-ticket yesterday. Later during the day yesterday, I received a mail from Flight Network (which I guess is the travel portal used by Kayak.com) stating that the 1st leg of the flight (Reykjavik to Copenhagen) on 4th Sep got cancelled. The mail from Flight Network is appended in the mail below. Firstly, my travel date was never supposed to be 4th Sep, and it was always supposed to be 6th Oct, since I am still in India and have not even started my Scandinavia trip. Secondly, since the 1st leg of the flight was cancelled by the airline, the 2nd leg made no sense for me anyways, since my end destination was always supposed to be Stockholm, and not Copenhagen. Since the cancellation has occurred at SAS end (and even the incorrect booking date seems to be an error not at my end), I would request you to organise for a full refund of the Reykjavik to Stockholm flight fare for me & my wife to me. This amount was charged to my credit card by Kayak.com so would appreciate it if you could either get the full amount refunded to my credit card, or organise for the amount to get transferred online to my bank account. I would look forward to your prompt response. Thanks, Tushar"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have a free meal. Flight arrived late at night with most food options closed"
Cons: "Seat 8G does not have a window."
Pros: "Plane was new"
Cons: "Crew was lazy and you had to pay for everything. No food no alcohol. Barely any water. They gave you a water bottle when you got on the plane so th crew didn't have to work the rest of the 5 hour flight. Food sucked even when you bought it."

Pros: "Our flight from Iceland to Zurich was prompt, calm, comfortable, and easy."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "No food, beverage service very limited."

Pros: "Comfort of plane and flight in general. Able to make up lost time from delays."
Cons: "Terrible airport experience! Because of other flight delays, the boarding of our flight was late and very confused. There was a terrible trio playing music at our gate that was so loud that no one heard the boarding announcements. Needless to say, they were quite late in boarding this flight as well as our others."
Pros: "Dreamliner plane"
Cons: "Terrible service from get go which continued when landing in Melbourne with hopeless Qantas."
Pros: "Easy checking with great Customer Care. Made my trip enjoyable. Will use again in July..."
Pros: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."
Cons: "LATE ! ! ! LATE ! ! ! And “AA” has a really good reputation ... so pretty bummed out ... the apologized ... and did what hey could to make the flight more pleasant ... but i’m here for my daughter who’s having surgery in the morning and .. it’s now 0107 and we should have been here at 2356 ... and we are all tired"
Cons: "Well because of some dumb delay we missed our connection allowing us to be given new tickets for two more connecting flights. Which is absurd."
Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."
Cons: "I asked for water and juice, they just gave me juice"
Pros: "Amazing entertainment selection, comfortable."
Pros: "First time flyer with American airlines and the service was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "Think this plane still had screens overhead vs personal screens."
Cons: "No movies or other entertainment that I could find"
Pros: "Price, new plane, interactive system"
Pros: "The plane was newer, drinks are available. Seat only reclines half an inch or so so get ready for that."
Cons: "Crew on aa is the worst bunch of entitled fools, almost as horrendous as united."
Pros: "Plane and staff were great. Very easy boarding process and we landed early in Dublin airport after an hour delayed take off. Food and staff service was very good, no complaints."
Cons: "No idea how they messed up the take off and landing times so greatly. left an hour late and arrived an hour early. No personal entertainment screen and plugs were not working."
Pros: "The staff were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "When I called the emergency number, I was put on hold and charge by my wireless carrier for international call and no one answered the call."
Pros: "The crew was great! They did big effort to speak in Spanish! And also they are kind in every thing!"
Pros: "It was on time. Crew were very good."
Cons: "Plane seemed very dated. No individual entertainment No USB chargers Not much space"
Pros: "Exit seat"
Cons: "Canceled flight after many hours butting was obvious it was. It going to happen from the start. Asked for a hotel and none offered but many others on same flight for a room from AA. Rebooked for the next day an airport an hour away from original destination and had to provide my own transportation to destination. Finally they lost my luggag."
Cons: "Seating. Plus our previous flights on American were horrible. Too many delays to note. (Late plane, mechanical issues, boarded anyway, sat on plane 2 hours, sent to a new gate, delayed, boarded, sat on new plane 2hrs waiting for food truck (chips), etc. Trip from hell"
Pros: "Very friendly, constantly hard working crew. They didn't stop moving through the cabin for the whole flight. Swift boarding."
Cons: "Extremely poor food. Airline food is rarely enjoyable but I had two mouthfuls of my pasta and left the rest even though I was hungry. Dreadful "entertainment " system. 4 tiny screens over the centre row is seats showed the in flight movies. This on a transatlantic flight. What decade are American Airlines in?! The fleet look like they date back to the '90's at best!!"
Pros: "Was on time"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I didn't receive a refund or free hotel accommodations. I've been on flights in Africa where free hotel accommodations were standard for a layover over 3 hours. A little embarrassing that an airline in America can't afford a hotel for people stranded in a city overnight."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional (as usual), everything ran smoothly and on time."
Cons: "It doesn't make sense to board from the front of the plane backward. I know this is not an AA thing, but a way to make customers paying more feel more special by having the privilege of sitting on the plane longer...but it's really silly."
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: "Tiny airplane but single flght crew managed my and from what I could see fellow passengers needs commendably. Whilst I didn't like needing to hand in my carry on (without much warning so I didn't have time to pull out a magazine to read) on the plus side it was stored well as my suit carrier came out unscathed and you get your bags curb side as soon as the plane lands so you don't have to wait for the rest of the bags to unload."
Cons: "Because the airplane is so small there is not much room to move in the aisle (thankfully most people just sat down for the short flight), also you have to hand in your carry on baggage so that it is stored with the main bags."
Pros: "Good crew Lucky to get better seats!"
Cons: "Poor Selection of entertainment not enough screen"
Cons: "They were not honest with the information given by stewardesses"
Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"
Pros: "Prompt and effective"
Cons: "limited space and comfort for such a long flight."
Pros: "Seats were very roomy, both in with and legroom. The whole flight experience was good."
Cons: "Headphones on a short-haul flight were used and we're clearly dirty with dust. Drinks on the flight are quite particular. There were people who asked for beer and got a can, others who asked for the same got just half of the can."
Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."
Pros: "Since chek-in gate number changed two times. Outdated airplane especially for international flight. In flight meal could be better. Compare with other US airlines AA needs serious improvements in customer service."
Cons: "Delayed like 5 times, finally canceled. Rerouted thru additional stops than bought."
Cons: "Small plane, 6 seats per row, no individual entertainment. Not comfortable for a 7 hour trip."
Pros: "Airline and crew looked after us and kept us informed. My app said the flight was delayed but the captain didn't seem to know this so we sat for half an hour or more after planned departure. Maybe he hoped to get an earlier slot. We were 30 mins late in the end."
Cons: "No food for purchase, just a drink and biscuit."
Cons: "Older A321 plane, WIFI horrible and no seat back entertainment as on newer A321s"
Pros: "Eventually we made it"
Cons: "Plane was delayed because a door wasn't working (old). Business class entertainment was a tablet that was collected an hour before we landed. Food was very bland."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled And rescheduled and we were not notified. We missed our flight. The next flight was the following day. We missed a day of vacation and $500 a day hotel fees. We felt we should be reimbursed for our flight but the person we talked to wasn't too helpful."
Pros: "Streaming entertainment with great choices Not too crowded so got my upgrade"
Cons: "Food was disgusting... bland cheese lasagna or small wet noodle salad with piece of chicken. This menu has been going for years! Old B757 No sparkling water but 75 variations of Coca Cola"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and kept to schedule."
Cons: "AA staff at JFK airport were rude and unhelpful. Staff onboard the flight were excellent."
Pros: "Fantastic customer service - from lounge to arrival gate. Unlike BA this airline does recognize its frequent flyers and upgrades us often to business. I fly a lot - Executive Platinum - and this makes a huge difference."
Cons: "My connecting flight LHR to AMS was on BA and they really droped the ball compared to AA."
Pros: "- It was on time"
Cons: "- No food although I was entitled to free snack with my status - Service was inexistant - Premium seat (front row) thanks to my One World status but no space for my legs at all - it would have been better in a normal seat"
Pros: "Crew friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Flatbed width tight"
Pros: "In-seat entertainment options. Good system, easy to use, lots of good options. Why couldn't you have had this on our flight from Europe?"
Cons: "The almost 30 minute wait on the tarmac AFTER we landed to find a free gate. Did you not know we were coming???? The last thing we needed after a very long day of flying."
Cons: "Several consecutive issues delayed our start, then had a weather hold before we could descend. VERY crowded, got stuck with a window seat with a very large man next to me--better than B or D, at least."
Pros: "Seats reclined, beverage service."
Cons: "Wish movie would have been a better movie, not animated."
Pros: "Upgraded from Business to First on a transcend A321. Seats amazing, hard product is just superb on these planes. Crew good but a bit animatronic as always with AA."
Cons: "Apparently due to staffing issue I sat in a plane for 2 hours before it took off causing me and my partner to miss our connection."
