Considering this is the longest flight in the world, the flagship flight for Singapore Airlines, and the price paid, it failed to deliver in PremEco. Side note- Early Check-In at Changi Jewel to bag drop hours early is not allowed for SIN > USA. Strike 1. Previous issues with SA's website prevented us from booking the preferred seat in the front row with more legroom. All attempts to contact SA customer support were ignored or incredibly delayed until the seat was booked by someone else. Strike 2 and 3. Boarding area isn't too special. Announcements for boarding were poor. Anyone not in 1st or Business class is definitely made to feel like the lowest. Take off was almost 1am, but they decided to serve one of two meals right afterwards while everyone went to sleep. Strike 4. Meager efforts to offer food or beverage (let alone alcohol) the rest of the 17 hours. Strike 5 Food was average, but below expectations for (again) the flagship flight / longest in world. Powder egg omelet/potatoes or chicken/fries Crew was back in my face to remove my food 4 minutes after they'd served it, since the crew couldn't wait to disappear for hours at a time. Strike 6. Not friendly, not looking to serve passengers paying top $ but quite ready to act superior to tell you what they can't do, can't serve and quick to use degrading tones to tell you to sit down, buckle up. Example 1: Would I like something to drink? Yes, do you have hot tea? We have English breakfast tea. Do you have other flavors? No. Stunning. Example 2: Captain turns on seatbelt sign due to turbulence, attendants go to the back galley and start talking. Turbulence ends, captain turns off seatbelt sign. I get up and walk to the toilets. Attendant, still seated talking to another attendant, turns to me and says "you need to sit down." Me: "no sir, the seatbelt sign got turned off, and I'm hear to use the bathroom. Pay attention and do your job". Wifi is only for upper class or KrisFlyer members. Guess what, I am... but when I enter my info, it fails to connect. Strike 7 (by the way, it isn't high-speed internet anyway Strike 8). 4 whole channels of live TV, sad Strike 9. Movie selection is average. When you're stuck in a tube for 18 hours, it needs to be spectacular, Strike 10. No personal air control, and when sitting on tarmac, there is no air... so guess what, in Singapore it gets hot and humid really fast. Strike 11. PremEco seat was one of the best I've used, so I slept longer than most flights. That was a good thing in itself, but also because it allowed me to skip more of the unpleastantness when awake. For high-priced tick, on a flagship flight of a highly-rated airlines, this was a well-rounded 17hr letdown. But arrived ontime at least.
Kayak will not refund tickets for my traveler who’s passport had time issue. Never again kayak
Sandwich could be better :)
Separate lanes for different groups in gate b2 would have been nice. Instead it was a bad mad rush to the front of the queue.
Food was not as good as it used to be during the Pre-Covid years. Fruits were not served with Lunch or Dinner.
The staff was great. The food really wasn’t good
Pros: "The crew was very polite and very helpful. Boarding process was smooth and easy, however, the Singapore airport has security checks at every gate prior to boarding. This meant that after clearing this security process at the gate, bathrooms were not available until after boarding the flight and drinking water stations were not easily found in the secure boarding area. The aircraft was comfortable, menus were distributed early so that meal options could be made with full information in advance. The food was good and made available at routine intervals."
Cons: "On a 14 hour flight, staying well hydrated is very critical and difficult. It would have been nice for the crew to make more frequent trips through the cabin to offer just water refills to keep passengers hydrated and reduce plastic cup usage."
Pros: "I loved that the airline offered several meals, snack options and drinks. The attendants were amazing and would highly recommend Singapore airlines to anyone flying internationally"
Cons: "The limited arm room/personal space. Not much leg room in economy for a 10 hour flight. Would be nice if airlines would decrease the number of seats and give a little more room so people aren’t hitting each other in the head with their arms"
Pros: "Great seating"
Cons: "Free internet in long flights"
Pros: "I liked the size of the cups for drinks: smaller than usual."
Cons: "You could train some of your crews to behave more polite to the customers like they do in the Japanese airlines. Male crews tended to be nicer than female crews."
Pros: "The crew was really nice. The plane was clean and comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Yes and yes"
Cons: "Not sure because I have never had a better experience."
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work on 3 of the 4 flights although all purportedly had it. Also didn’t work the majority of the time in the Business Class Lounge in Singapore. Food was mediocre both on flights and in the lounge. Movie selection could hardly have been worse."
Pros: "Great crew and cabin!"
Cons: "Meals were just ok"
Pros: "Friendly crew and spacious."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "The crew, their professionalism and wide variety of entertainment."
Cons: "Air-conditioning was not working properly in the cabin and it felt warm. Seats are a tad uncomfortable and not wide enough on the 777."
Pros: "USB and plug for every seat, reasonable leg space and leg rest, good food choice and very attentive crew."
Cons: "No negative points"
Pros: "Entertainment ok but not newest, boarding smooth, food ok"
Cons: "Long waiting time for baggage, food not exceptional"
Pros: "Everything From the food to the drinks to the comfort"
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff. plane 777 business class seat comfortable, and flat bed, once you figured out how to operate it was also comfortable. Food was good but not excellent compared to previous flights."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines business class lounge in Melbourne was less than impressive and the food was atrocious. Lounge in Singapore was large but still overcrowded. Amenities much better and the food was plentiful and interesting."
Pros: "Very attentive and super awesome crew."
Cons: "With no food preferences specified, it takes a significantly longer time to get your meal as there are a lot of people who have special dietary requirements on certain routes."
Pros: "Excellent service and attitude from ALL crew! Roomy premier economy!"
Pros: "Singapore airline crew is always top notch in terms of service and attentiveness. It's a direct flight from Singapore to Canberra! Beats the layover in Sydney or Melbourne."
Cons: "Business class seats were uncomfortable compared to other business class. They're not lay flat seats, and I can't get the seat even close to flat because my feet jam in to the bottom of the seat in front of me. The food wasn't great, some of the meal which was supposed to be served hot was still cold."
Pros: "Great service and comfort."
Cons: "Food was bland and breakfast availability was a joke. On any flight, passengers do not want spicy or evening meals, and having a limited amount number of breakfasts available was not amusing. The crew had done 5 rows and we were 6 row from kitchen and they had run out ."
Pros: "Boarding, friendly crew"
Cons: "Very slow service, took 2 hours. Entertainment system didn't worked for first half of flight."
Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and the regular economy seats didn't give me enough to leg room"
Pros: "The cabin crew was great."
Cons: "1. Flight seats are too congested on flight.. 2. Not too many indian movie choices 3. Some reason, while booking the flight, the KAYAK site had not asked for food choice. And the airline does not carry any extra vegetarian food. This had caused some inconvenience."
Pros: "That the A380 was only 70%full, resulting in me getting three seats to myself. I was able to stretch out and sleep for most of the flight. Food and service were top notch. Better value than Lufthansa or American, for the overall flight experience. You could fly cheaper, but not better, in economy."
Cons: "Though we landed early at JFK, we had a one hour wait on the tarmac until one of the only two gates capable of receiving an A380 opened up."
Pros: "The seats seem to have more leg room, food was actually good, and the staff was delightful."
Cons: "It was a 17 hour flight, but they made it bearable."
Pros: "More movies and TV than you can watch, incredible cabin team, low cost, I mean, what's not to like. American, are you listening?!?"
Cons: "I have to drive from DFW to IAH, I wish Singapore would take over from American and British Air at DFW, honestly Singapore is cheaper, better service, nicer ground and in flight teams. It's worth the extra drive to travel with people that actually care"
Pros: "I've always flown Singapore airlines wherever possible. Standards are unbeatable until this flight..."
Cons: "The dinner was terrible. I am a long time customer of Singapore Airlines and I know where the standard are. The food on this flight was the worst I've seen. The starter (vermicelli) was overly salty, dry and severely undercooked. The main course was acceptable but the portion of chicken was more like side dish not main. Missing sides."
Cons: "Crew was very poor in responding to any requests. I am usually very quite and light on demands as i hardly hit call button on the seat to get any assistance, but during meal, I was asked about drink and I opted for Ginger ale. Crew said, she will get back to me and I did not hear from her for another 10 mins, then there was repeat serve of drinks and I was asked if i needed any thing and asked the same drink, but then I was asked to wait. After I had finished off my meal and ready to go to sleep, someone was bringing my drink out and I then respectfully say no to it as it was bit late after the meal and asked for water instead and did not like the look on the face of the crew member. I saw it happening with other passengers as well and was under the impression, the whole crew performance was pretty poor and SIA was not up to its high-standards as I always like to fly with them. I will look for different option next time"
Pros: "The service and the flight to and from Narita Airport."
Pros: "Crew was great. Food not bad for airline food . It was clean."
Cons: "breakfast was terrible"
Pros: "The hot towels twice during the flight was great"
Cons: "Really just the food"
Pros: "Not much turbulence"
Pros: "1) Crew very personable and accommodating 2) Food was good 3) Arrival on schedule 4) Entertainment system provided lots of choices 5) Baggage arrived in reasonable amount of time"
Cons: "1) Economy seating was cramped (long-haul flights should have more spacious seating) 2) Crying babies made flight almost unbearable 3) Process of leaving the plane took too long because only one exit door was used 4) Departure delayed by 35-40 minutes (made up in flight)"
Pros: "The food is good. The service is excellent, always smiling and attentive."
Cons: "Not enough quantity of each type of food. I did not get the cold noodle I want and end up eating sandwiches."
Pros: "Upgraded to biz class, which was fantastic"
Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Not enough food served (only two meals on a sixteen hour flight) and tasted okay. Crew was not all friendly."
Pros: "The cabin attendants kept us well hydrated."
Cons: "The entertainment options were mediocre. Gluten-free meal may have contained traces of gluten."
Cons: "cramped uncomfortable seats freezing cold in the plane"
Pros: "Best economy experience I've ever had. The cabin crew is very attentive, constantly coming around with drinks and water refills. They also had decent light snacks in case you were hungry between meals. I also loved the chairback setup and the entertainment unit. If flying economy, Singapore will be my airline of choice."
Cons: "Food was meh. Above average, but still not amazing."
Can improve AVML on board Flight departure and arrival perfect
The legroom in comparison to other carriers was amazing. While another carrier may consider it business class legroom the economy class for Qatar was more. The staff and entertainment was proven to be world class as free headsets, blankets, pillows, masks, eye covering, and even ear plugs were provided and all without asking. While the cost was slightly higher it was worth every penny.
Very organized airline with friendly and professional air and land crew.
It was a good trip. Friendly staff. On time flights. Great experience.
There was flight delays due to long ques of on-boarding process.
This flight was cancelled
Cons: "My flight time was changed but I didn’t receive any email regarding the change"

Pros: "Very friendly crew, good space in my seat, kept the plane dark and quiet for the overnight flight"
Cons: "Boarding, restroom,"
Pros: "Food, seat, entertainment"
Cons: "The staff though friendly was found to be unhelpful. I was literally carrying three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed by at least three crew members. But none of them bothered helping me. Your measure of success is not just how well you treat your business class. That’s not being world class"
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "The lounge, they use the club lounge in Boston which was so so. Could we have use the one world BA lounge instead?"
Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."
Pros: "Everything....The service,the food,the in-flight entertainment(so many films to chose from) the flight attendants were brilliant,the flight was smooth it went by so fast as though time didn't exist.I recommend Qatar Airways to everybody."
Cons: "Can't find any fault...Sorry!"
Pros: "all are nice"
Cons: "nothing but avoid bread"
Pros: "The flight from Doha to Beirut was not fully booked, we could move easily."
Cons: "I have requested seafood for my meals. Unfortunately I was told that no such request was mentioned on the list as special meal. Overall the food was okay, we had 2 small pieces of beef in one meal, the two salads has no taste and the sandwich was too salty. A passenger who sat next to my husband snored all the time and leaned a bit over my husband as he was heavy."
Cons: "Service is always bad. This time from bag, all electronics have been stolen. It is 200$ worth things have been missing from my baggage."
Cons: "going with RJ in the first leg"
Pros: "Food, seat OK, crew excellent"
Cons: "Immigration at Doha is appalling. More than 75 minutes waiting and very understaffed."

Cons: "Not one of their newest planes."
Pros: "I like the service very much. Flight attendants are very friendly and helpful, polite. After the flight I got some present. Kit with socks eye mask and lip balm, which was very nice."
Cons: "Dnt have anything to say what I dnt like. Everything is great."
Pros: "I liked the food, the crew, and the team at the airport was nice and professional. There was a air host by the name of Zaid or Zain and he was from Bombay. Really nice person and very easy to talk to."
Pros: "Aircraft was much better than the flight from US, food was great. The only thing I wished for was more movies."
Cons: "Lack of movies"
Pros: "Have flown emirates and etihad business - now sampled the best by far. Qatar's a380 was incredible but the a330 on wind leg whilst not as nice was mademupmfor by the best crew I have experienced ever - WOULD NOT HESITATE TO FLY AGAIN"
Cons: "The Oryx system lackedmin recent movies ....that's the only complaint"

Pros: "no time now"
Cons: "no time now"
Cons: "Narrow seats and little legroom."
Cons: "I was Told the flight form Doha back to Houston was over booked so I had to get re-routed through another city. For a $6,600 business class ticket this is very bad form."
Pros: "Qatar Airways Is Fantastic Service"
Cons: "Service and Food Selection"
Pros: "Best Arab airline so far.5 star but if I could give more i would"
Cons: "I had booked the Amaya lounge for the 3,5 hours stop over. It cost $50+ and was so not worth it! Bad food and uncomfortable chairs plus it was really crowded! Next time I'll just go to a cafe! No seats at the gate when I got there. Slooow boarding!"
Pros: "As the flight would be long (from Japan to Sao Paulo) they had the gentleness of putting us in the best seats well ahead that were available"
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the entertainment system needs more content, the food could use more variety. I would definitely travel with them again."
Pros: "Best thing is 2 free checked bags."
Cons: "Food and service in economy could be better. Nothing special about Qatar."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!!!"
Cons: "The fact that our flight was cancelled without being notified. I will never make flight arrangements with them again!!!!!"

Pros: "A350 is a very comfortable plane. More legroom than Emirates. Big difference for long flights."
Cons: "Service could be faster (food, etc). Entertainment system did not work on some of the seats."
Pros: "Overall I would highly recommend it. Excellent service, good food, good on board entertainment. Flight attendants and crew in general very polite and very helpful. Despite our delay in arriving at the airport (check in was done online in advance), the flight attendants accepted us for the trip. The whole process was extremely efficient, there was no delay in take off time and the suitcases arrived all on time to our destination. I really appreciated their help: we did have a medical emergency 3 hours prior to our arrival to the airport, hence the delay.."
Cons: "Everything went smoothly, I had no bad experience with this flight.."
Not all crew memebers behavior was good .
Very friendly crew and nice comfortable seats for coach even.
Great flight. Wonderful crew, delicious food, comfortable seats.
Pros: "Great seat with extra legroom, very attentive cabin crew."
Pros: "I liked the food and the supplies given for the long trip, blanket, eye cover, toothbrush, etc."
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "There is for a 4 hours flight just a small snack - just like a local flight. Then there is no bedding at all, just a blanket. Very poor for a F-class ticket."
Cons: "Old plane - ACE - very basic movie selection."
Pros: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."
Cons: "Emirates sent a notice that the flight was cancelled on a flight from SF to the Maldives - with about 6 hours notice. They put me on a plane two days later. Zero interest by the airline helping. We found a flight on Turkish but paid an extra $500. Zero interest in helping. Last time sensitive ever on Emirates."
Pros: "Nothing, it did not felt like an Emirates flight."
Cons: "The ICE on this flight is ancient, the seats are narrow, food was okay, nothing special. This is an old 777, which needs a refurbishment badly. Boarind experience is blah. After checking in you find yourself in a waiting hall with all the other passengers."
Pros: "Great comfort and entertainment some of the best I have ever had on a plane. Will definitely fly Emirates again."
Cons: "Not huge fan of boarding off a bus instead of the traditional way from the airport terminal. Food selection could be better but overall not bad."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "No problems"
Cons: "With more focus on menat and India what used to be a good airline is slowly turning to cattle carrier."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Leg room is always great!! Also the staff a brilliant!!"
Pros: "Whether coach, business or 1st class, Emirates creates their passengers with respect and thanks in all they do. A 13 hour flight is no short haul and the Emirates staff kept a positive aire throughout the flight. The meals were very good, the service as well. The facilities were kept clean and accessible. Thank you Emirates...you made my trip a pleasure both to and from Dubai."
Cons: "Usually, on the night flights you get a small toileteries kit with ear plugs, eye cover and a toothbrush. I kind of missed that..."
Pros: "There really wasn't much to like, but I suppose the space in the seating was decent. We also did not have any delays in boarding and the flight itself was nice."
Cons: "The crew did not even ask customers if they needed water. The food selections were terrible, and then there was no selection at all by the time I had a chance to order my food. I didn't eat barely anything for the whole 12 hr flight. That is the worst situation I have ever been on when flying anywhere. So, yes, I found it horrible for the most part."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"
Cons: "The food was average"
Pros: "Food, care, excellent people ."
Pros: "My first and hopefully not last flight on one of the world's best airlines."
Cons: "The attendant at the counter gave us 2 very bad seats together but did not indicate no tray table . was no problem because on the plane we switched."
Pros: "Food and crew were great"
Cons: "Entertainment was horrible...it was connected for the first 2 hours only then got disconnected for the whole flight duration...I couldn’t watch any movie, tv show, music, live tv, and the crew tried to reset the screen several times with no success, then it worked again in the last hour...I travelled on business class and paid the extra charge for better service"
Pros: "We've flown asian airlines before, but Emirates is by far the best for international travel. Unfortunately we could not afford to upgrade to business, but because we let the Agent know it was our honeymoon he put my wife and I in a window and aisle seat so that we would have nobody between us. This gave us the extra room and comfort we needed. Also, they are a bit roomier than most planes with better leg room. They have a TON of free movies, tv shows, games, music and more on the plane. Food was decent for airplane food and they gave lots of snacks in between."
Pros: "New aircraft."
Cons: "Not enough storage space. Beds not the most comfortable. No wi-fi."
Cons: "Crowded! I did not realize we were traveling on a holiday. The plane was full of children, including preverbal kids, who have no choice other than to cry when they are confused or unhappy. But hey, that's what noise-cancelling headphones are for! Staff is very accommodating and did their best."
Pros: "Free upgrade given as skywards gold"
Cons: "ICE not as good as a380"
Cons: "Bad smell - probably somebody had vomited on a previous flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "The flight was so nice! I landed on time, the food was good. I loved it the fact that I could charge my phone, have a good amount of tv show and movies to choose from. Comfortable seats. Yep I would recommend and I would flight with Emirates airlines again"
Pros: "There was enough leg room, good entertainment and food."
Cons: "Entertainment system was older version than the flight to Dubai. Also less legroom in this model 777"
Pros: "Everyone was super friendly. I enjoyed that the plane was empty that we could all change our seats to be more comfortable."
Cons: "The walking to board my connecting flight was overwhelming, a lot of walking. Also, I understand the food isn't from a 5 star restaurant but the lamb I ate was over cooked and felt very rubbery. As the crew members went around aking if you want Tea or Coffee, I said I wanted coffee. The coffee was cold so I couldn't even drink it, i know I can ask for another one but I felt so disappointed that I'd rather have nothing. My monitor had lots of weird lines on them as the colors were so off on some areas and good on other areas."
Pros: "I was okay till got to sit on their tight sits for 15 hours they could have done better. After 15 hours flight no one cared enough to guide us to rest place, because the next flight was not to the next day, was hoping to let us stay on the hotel. This was a disaster planning by the airline."
Pros: "Crew is attentive and helpful. Seats are comfortable in economy class. Bathrooms are well equipped and generally speaking clean. Meals are good quality."
Cons: "I would change the snack in the flight Milan to JFK. instead of the pizza pesto, I would offer fruit options or regular breakfast food although it is a snack."
Pros: "The boarding was good, I needed a wheelchair as I had a heel problem , this service was very well done, the staff were helpful and obliging on the flight"
Cons: "The food was disgusting, I chose to have gluten free, the breakfast was the worse food I have ever eaten, the eggs were like rubber to eat, the fish was the same and the chips were grey and soggy with saturated stale oil, the bread roll was stale, as a result I didn't eat the breakfast and the main meal wasn't much better, I feel if the food was much more simple , fresh , and the fruit ripe instead of green , the meal would have been more appealing ."
Pros: "The new A380 flight is very comfortable. The leg room even in economy was great."
Cons: "The in flight crew service was absolutely terrible. I was shocked to receive this kind of service by Emirates. I did not receive any assistance by the crew members even after pressing the call button and waiting for over 20 mins. Finally I had to get up and help myself. This was not just once but twice in a single flight. One of the stewards serving my area seemed very curt. The food was also terrible. My chicken dish was cold and very dry. Even the side bread was like a rock. The coffee that was served after the meal was cold. This kind of service is unacceptable on a 16hr trans Atlantic flight. Overall very disappointed with Emirates."
Pros: "Air hostesses were very polite in general I like the leg space food was delicious"
Cons: "- crew pick wake me up to ask for my blanket 30 mins before landing - pick up head set when i had 10 mins left on the movie - did not like not having enough space to fit my hand luggage into overhead compartment for the exit seat. - need free internet - could not get online at all"
Pros: "I didnt mych like anything of this transit sector from colombo to maldives."
Cons: "First off, if im buying a ticket and traveling by myself and have an overnight 11hrs and 35min layover i expected some sort of accommodation given that the Maldivian airport is an outside one. Not only did they (Maldivian Emirates counter officer Ibrahim Shinad) refused to give me a lounge they said to get a room at a hotel was $400 US! Which is absurd. I had to sleep on metal chairs. They also closed most shops by 12am and by the time we landed and went through checkin it was 1130. Not a pleasant experience at all."
Pros: "great plane and service, and so many movies"
Cons: "the passenger next to me had no sense of personal space or boundary, head on my shoulder while sleeping, foot in front of my chair, etc. and no english; gave the flight attendants a hard time too"
Pros: "Crew behavior, boarding, entertainment channels,food,comfort"
Flight from Zurich to Florence was fine
Swiss Air rescheduled our connecting flight to 7:45 am. Our initial flight didn’t land until 10:20 am. The people at the Swiss Air counter said our flight was canceled. It was not canceled. THANK GOODNESS for United who rescheduled us on a flight the following day. Kayak, I was on hold the night prior to our flight to speak with you about this scheduling nightmare for 2.5 hours before the call was dropped. I did not receive a call back. I am very unhappy with Kayak’s customer service and lack of communication and do not plan to use your business in the future.
Pros: "Crew was very attentive, and boarding and off-boarding was relatively easy"
Cons: "The seats were cramped, and hard to get out of when the person in front had their seat tilted back, it felt practically in your lap when you were seated."
Cons: "Actually making the flight"
Pros: "fresh baked bread!"
Cons: "fight was delayed almost 4 hours. we were stuck on the plane for over 2 hours before liftoff while technical difficulties were worked out. no compensation offered."
Pros: "I liked that it was a straight flight from SFO -ZRH. On board entertainment was great."
Cons: "Seating is way to tight. Service from crew is nothing at all like it used to with Swiss. Nearly a smile from crew ( both legs of flight) mostly just hand motion when serving food. Food was a big disappointment too. It feels like all the good service is reserved only for business and first class !"
Cons: "The seat bottom was very uncomfortable and made my bum sore the rest of the day."
Pros: "friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "organise priority exit when we have a delayed arrival, so that those who have a train or flight connection can get out quicker"
Pros: "Hospitality was wonderful. The food and drinks were great and the constant entertainment made the 10+ hour flight bearable."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable but there is definitely not enough leg room especially if you are sitting in the middle seat. There should be some type of incentive given if you get stuck sitting between two complete strangers."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. Family line was nice when travelled with the little ones."
Cons: "I It will be helpful if the Gate information available within 6 hours of the flight. We don't have gate information and our flight within 3.5 hours. But overall wonderful experience."
Pros: "On board is pretty good except that the seats are pretty narrow compare to our previous experiences. As a reference, I am 5‘3“ and 110 lbs."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and the seats were narrrow."
Pros: "The space of the seat is wide. Nice chocolate."
Cons: "First, they announced that they need some passengers to voluntarily give up the booking in exchange for 280 refunds (a slightly higher rate which not worth to do it) and 1 stopover the fight to Rome which will arrive at 22.00 instead (our flight is 17.35). About 15 minutes before boarding time, they announced flight delaying. Around 17.45, they announced gate changing from B to A which located at opposite side of the the airport so all passengers run there because of everyone afraid that their booking might be canceled because no one agrees to give up. At both gates, many people try to jump in the queue which no staff comes in the manage the queue. During waiting on the board, the air condition seems to be closed, hard to breathe. Around 19.00, the plane took off the Zurich airport eventually, finish the 1.5 hours delay. The captain announced that it cause by the technical problem of the flight earlier but my thinking it cause from over-booking."
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"
Pros: "Crew were amazing."
Pros: "The crew were great and boarding went very smoothly."
Cons: "After such a smooth boarding we found we had to sit on the tarmac for an hour because of congestion at Zurich."
Cons: "first baggage should be free.....as people travel with 15-20kg hand luggage"
Pros: "The crew and flight"
Cons: "No airconditioning while waiting on the shuttle bus to the plane"
Pros: "Good seats for my wife and i: window and aisle seat"
Cons: "Only glass of water free...coffee is 3.50"
Pros: "A good airline and a good flight. Lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "Zurich is a confusing Airport, where signs are not obvious, and the queues are poorly formed. They should improve that for sure."
Cons: "I arrived on Thursday, today is saturday and I am still without my luggage."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of was bad just a regular fight."
Cons: "This flight was missed due to the delay of the first flight."
Cons: "Reviewing Business class Nothing memorable at all. An ok dinner after take off followed by a tiny salad 8h later before landing. Quite minimal for such a long flight. The entertainment system needs special mention for its awfulness. The system in Business class would be considered poor even in Econ - small screen, terrible picture quality and a painful, prehistoric interface."
Pros: "I was late ( I had to drive 230 Km ) and I managed to call in advance the company that was doing the check-in on behalf of SWISS - I asked them the Check-in time closing time and by almost flying ( speeding like crazy ) I arrived before that moment."
Cons: "I did not check the terms and conditions of the ticket. I am a Star Alliance Gold member and I was expecting SWISS to have a similar booking system like the others I fly with. I found out that the ticket fare did not contain checked luggage ( so I had to pay a hefty fee for it ) and also my 20" wheeled case that was ok in all the other flights I took it with me, this time was oversized and overweight . My wife took out the 2 laptops so it became within weight limits but still oversized - My wife paid for the fee ( I wasn't there at the time and she is not a such experienced flyier as I am ) . When I found out about the fee, I checked their rules and I found out that the hand luggage is allowed to be 22" . I saw in the airplane a lot of people with cases having the same size as mine, that went as checked luggage at a cost fo around 40 . I want to see how can I get my money back . . ."
Pros: "Fast, on time."
Cons: "No entertainment at all, super uncomfortable"
Pros: "Boarding was excellent, seats were comfy, food was delicious and crew was wonderful. Nice movie/tv selection."
Cons: "We were quite delayed (almost 2 hours) and hot in the plane waiting on the runway...but SWISS was fantastic about helping with connections and rebooking on arrival."
Pros: "Good space above seats"
Cons: "Seats way too tight. But the worst thing was the two passageners in the row we shared. They were laying on each other and it was inappropriate for the entire flight. He was rubbing her breast and I said something. He seemed to stop. Lots of rubbing and huggin and the man had his legs stretched out man spread style"
Pros: "Very friendly and excellent service. It was my first experience flying with Swiss. Will definitely fly with them again. Brest airline I've taken to Europe. This airline should be called tthe friendly skies of Europe. They are outstanding."
Cons: "The trip coming back to Chicago was a bit longer than going. The excellent service tgay eas provided by the crew made up for tgay."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Food was good"
Cons: "Crew was slow to pick up dishes and trash after meals. Passenger in front of me reclined seat leaving little room for me to watch the video screen or read."
Pros: "Swiss is always a tad nicer than the alternatives"
Cons: "Provided headphones are horrible and headphone jack only puts out mono when used with a regular set of headphones."
Pros: "The comfort of the aircraft was great, as well as the service of the flight crew. We're very thankful that the airline put us up in a hotel and gave us a voucher for food due to a layover in Zurich."
Cons: "The flight was an hour late, causing us to miss our connecting flight."
Cons: "Booked four flights from Zurich to Prague, but plans changed. No way to get a refund or cancellation although I tried two weeks beforehand. Disappointing to say the least."
Pros: "Food, entertainment, on time, excellent flight"
Cons: "Cramped, the touch screen was not very responsive, the snack at midnight would be better if it were breakfast food-"
Pros: "staff were very helpful"
Pros: "On time great crew. Free wine that is Swiss air."
Cons: "Worst experience. Very rude employees. Not great flexibility with carry on luggage beware"
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "SWISS always turns on the air conditioning too high on intercontinental flights. It is HOT inside the cabins. The entertainment system is very outdated, small screen and old and used hand set. Claiming to be a premium airline is unfortunately very overstated if you are unlucky to catch the old business class planes. Only few have changed to the new versions (777s) - Make sure to catch those."
Pros: "overall very satisfied"
Cons: "no issues"
Pros: "Great flight, great crew. Seats were very comfortable. much space for legs and comfortable for sleep."
Pros: "Food usually was very bad on SWISS flights' econ class, this was surprisingly better (just better, not good). Staff were professional and polite though they spoke very loud even when most people around were asleep."
Cons: "At check-in counters, staff managing the queues did not speak English at all, same thing at the security check queue, only Spanish speaking. There should be some clearer instructions of how and where to queue at boarding. Everyone just wanted to cut queue."
Pros: "Crew handled it well"
Pros: "Good service... good food....on time. I will fly Swiss again."
Pros: "The crew was very good--attentive and helpful. The food was excellent too, as they offered regular liquid refreshments and several snacks plus a meal. The chocolate was a special treat."
Cons: "My seat had been given to someone else also, and they boarded before me, so I had no seat for some time. I was told to stand in the back, which I did for a long time. Eventually I sat down on the edge of a place and a stewardess snapped at me. I've had back surgery recently, so all of this was very difficult. Finally given a seat. No internet--big drawback on overseas flights. On our trip there, one bathroom was a mess, plus out of toilet paper. Told the stewardess, and they closed it for a while--took some time for it to be attended to. The entertainment choices are VERY slim--don't know why a more extensive list of choices could not be made available."
Cons: "THERE'S SOO LITTLE LEG SPACE BETWEEN SEATS ON THE ECONOMY SECTION IT IS VERY UNCONFORTABLE!!!"
Pros: "Boarding was very quick and efficient. Seating arrangements were nice pretty average overall."
Cons: "The crew was terrible. Young and in experience was on thing. But worse was they did the bare minimum and then hid out in the back for the rest of the flight. They served a weird cheese sandwich mid flight and would roll their eyes if you asked for water. The food selection and taste was bland or way too salty."
Cons: "I ordered a low carb meal . Only 1 pear + 1 apple for the later snack was a bit disapointed. Not balanced easy."
Timelessness could improve greatly. And for a coast to coast flight, the food options were very limited in my opinion (goldfish, 1-pop, and only water after that).
Smooth flight, love the entertainment options on that flight. Flight attendant Harris my sense of humor. Everything is clean. Keep it up
The Covid document screening is a joke. Also crying babies
It did not allow me to check in and left seats in advance or get a boarding pass. When specifically asked agent at gate for the row that had extra leg room, as my so. Is 6’4” she gives us a row where the seats do not even incline nor is there any extra room. Also the temp in Avon was high, making many passengers sweat Improve customer service !
Pros: "Crew was polite and very helpful."
Cons: "It would have been great to reiterate to passengers to remain seated when deplaning, until the passenger in the row ahead were approximately 6 Ft away."
Pros: "There was an amazing variety of tv shows and movies. That is essential for long flights like ours was."
Cons: "For long haul flights, I am used to being offered a pillow/blanket, even when sitting in economy."
Pros: "The flights were on time. The crews on both flights were friendly."
Cons: "Figuring out how to get boarding passes after seat assignment was not easy or forthcoming because I flew basic economy, especially on my connecting flight. Having instructions on that would be helpful."
Pros: "Crew ok ... not engaging"
Cons: "My hard shell suitcase was broken during the process not sure when or where. Items in my suitcase were also damaged. The seats are so close together that it was very hard. If you are a bigger person I recommend flying first class."
Pros: "The ability to charge my cell phone via USB ports. Also the movies on long flights is really nice"
Cons: "Quicker way to get off plane"
Pros: "At the airport things were quite, security was fast. Boarding was fast and smooth. I’ve flown with delta a lot and also a lot of others (cheaper ones) and I’m always happy when I get a delta flight things are always calmer and less crowded!"
Pros: "Crew was great seats comfortable but quite near back my connecting flight I had to get my seat when I got to the airport I was second from the back but close to washrooms"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on second flight but I didn’t use it anyway On second flight washroom was not very good my scarfe dropped on the floor and was wet and yuckie"
Pros: "Crew was good. It was great to be able to watch a movie, TV, or play a game to pass the time."
Cons: "More let room when someone puts back their seat."
Pros: "Even in the absolute freezing (-40F) the plane landed an hour early into Minneapolis. Was only delayed 20 minutes leaving. Crew did amazing to get the plane going."
Cons: "Boarding was like a cattle call....my headrest was broken so couldn’t sleep upright but face down....seemed like a plane that large would have more bathrooms"
Pros: "Flight attendant's are awesome and they always try to make your flight better."
Pros: "Crew was amazing! Entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Need more than 1 option for breakfast"
Pros: "Love the 757 entertainment system"
Cons: "snack mix is not great delayed takeoff"
Pros: "Nice and helpful crew, fast service."
Cons: "The food was not good, the breakfast was tiny. Who wants a sweet muffin for breakfast!?! It was a very shaky flight. We sat in the back rows which might have done things worse. Not comfortable at all."
Pros: "The gluten-free dinner was amazing. There was even gluten-free bread! Also, I always appreciate the free Wifi for messaging!! Also, despite there being a lot of turbulence, everyone did well. I prayed for safety and for the pilots and crew; the turbulence stopped after that and our arrival wasn't all that delayed."
Cons: "The gluten-free breakfast was extremely disappointing. Yogurt, a tiny cup of fruit, and veggie sticks??? What about a gluten-free English muffin with egg instead? The boarding was a little confusing. I was one of the last to board in my group because I couldn't see from where I was sitting - I thought priority was still boarding, but group 2 was already up. Also, please be more kind to baggage."
Pros: "That was a treat since I don't expect the option to watch movies on short flights Also, thank you for the healthier snack items- keep moving in that direction please!"
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "The service was excellent from boarding to inflight operations everyone seemed happy and made a honest attempt to be helpful and create an enjoyable experience for me and my Travel Partner."
Cons: "Plane was late coming in and my departure time was 30 minutes off schedule."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and concerned about us making our connections"
Cons: "The fact that they didn’t make sure all the paperwork was correct and our delay to NO was due to that issue"
Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."
Pros: "Efficient friendly staff"
Cons: "Kind of rough landing, but we are alive and well!"
Pros: "The professionalism of Delta employees, timeliness of flt."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"
Cons: "The poorly staffed bag check at BTV was maddening. We waited in line for what felt like 15 or more minutes. Boarding was also badly managed and took 20 minutes or so. There was no jetway so passengers had to walk a distance to the plane. The attendants all seemed to be having a bad morning. Not terribly friendly."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Pros: "the flight was on time and the staff very helpful"
Pros: "The USB connection at my seat worked; it often does not, so this was an improvement. The turkey sandwich was moist and delicious."
Pros: "on board service was nice and promptly"
Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class. I have taken this flight several times in the last 2 years and written about this issue but now doubt anybody cares about these comments. To make things worse, my seat would not recline!"
Pros: "The staff onboard was friendly and attentive. They made every effort to make sure I had whatever I wanted. Boarding was quick and easy. The onbaord entertainment system had a large selection and I was never without something worth watching."
Cons: "The first class accommodation isn't as good as advertised. The seat is supposed to completely recline allowing you to sleep. Unfortunately if you're 6 foot or taller there isn't enough room. Other airlines like Emirates gives you more room in their business class so it's disappointing to see United 1st class is so cramped. The screens for the onboard entertainment system in first class are lower quality then those used in coach."
Pros: "I had to hassle Delta going down because they did not precheck me. Blamed TSA. Called customer service when I checked in online and they got it done without a hassle."
Pros: "Cramped hot plane sitting in sun for half hour with no announcements"
Cons: "Flight was delayed substantially. Sat on the plan 40 minutes before taking off after already being 30 minutes delayed."
Pros: "The crew & my seat"
Cons: "The movie offerings & the snack offerings."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice and accomadating. Even came by to refill our waters! I've never been on a flight with such friendly flight attendants!"
Pros: "People are good"
Cons: "Flight delays!"
Pros: "Comfortable seating and clean interior. Flight attendants are helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Flight takeoff delayed one hour. Boarding has zoning, but with no structural boarding process, resulted some later zoning customers blocking earlier zoning customers in a single line. Suggest using multiple labeled queue lines, like southwest."
Pros: "The pilot came through all of the aisles in first class to personally thank us for flying with them. He took time to chat with us and answer our questions, which made me feel more comfortable about the long flight. The stewards/stewardesses were very nice and had us laughing on their welcome messages. The lay-flat seats in first class were the best. Very comfortable, and easy to fall asleep in, without disruption from other passengers who insist on keeping their reading lights on while everyone is trying to sleep."
Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "Lots of movies available!"
Cons: "One small bag bag of peanuts?!?"
Cons: "Flight was booked via Princess for a cruise. Flight from Vacoouver to LAX was through Delta partner Westjet. One schedule number and flight number for Delta, a different set of numbers for Westjet. Westjet requires you call them for seat assignment for a fee. Just not smooth!"
