Pros: "Each seat had their own screens, and there was a small footrest available for each seat."
Cons: "The food was uncharacteristically bad for JAL. They served some sort of French chef's dish that was terrible. Normally, JAL has great food that I love to eat. The plane was also pretty old so it felt more cramped than usual, and the seats we uncomfortable."
Pros: "Boarding procedure was the most efficient I have ever seen for a 777. Very quick and efficient, back to front. Great food. Very polite and efficient crew. Plenty of leg room in coach. Comfortable seat configuration, with only three seats in center section. JAL is a great airline!"

Cons: "Vegetarian food very difficult to book on JAL. Unlike most other major airlines they don't offer a vegetarian option routinely on their menus. Both I and another passenger who flew JAL the weekend before found the vegetarian food poor - very bland and too salty. The exact same menu all four times we flew. A pity as the rest of the service wa excellent. If JAL wishes to attract more international customers it would be a good idea for it to broaden its global perspective and provide better vegetarian options. I know others who've had similar concerns about other types of special meal."
Pros: "Everyone on the flight was very nice and helpful. Food was excellent! There were a lot of choices of movies to watch. It was probably the best flight experience I've ever had and I travel overseas quite a lot. If I ever get the chance to fly them again, I will. Great service and outstanding experience."
Pros: "The staff tried to accommodate all of our needs. Everyone was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Food was not the worst but not so great"
Pros: "Great flight.The service was excelent.There was always a stewardous walking around and asking if you needed anything.Japan Aitlines is definitely one of the best in the world."

Cons: "Not anyone fault but I wish seating was better fitted in economy for taller people"
Pros: "Great seating very spacious for economy class.... I got a pillow a blanket and lots of leg room... I enjoyed the in cabin service... TV was nice lots to choice from great movies..... I enjoyed free Wine.... And loved my ice cream treat... Felt like first class.... Thank you"

Cons: "Japanese food not great"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, constantly checking in with us to make sure we were okay since we don't eat the airline food."
Cons: "While there was more leg room than on most flights, the actual seats were not comfortable enough for a twelve hour flight. This was our ninth trip to Japan, and these were the most uncomfortable seats we've ever had."
Pros: "Japan Airlines is very good. They have good service, safety, and customer care."

Pros: "The 787 was quieter and felt very comfortable. The take off and landing were more smooth than I remember other flights being. The seats were quite comfortable and everything was very nice."

Cons: "I don't recall having seen an option for a vegetarian dinner, either when I was booking my ticket or after I was on the plane. Perhaps I just missed that part of the booking process."
Pros: "The cabin crew was lovely and ground staff equally so as I've come to expect from both ANA and JAL. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I think my negative impression of this flight was more due to the extreme turbulence and extra hour spent on the ground at Narita, which is always a challenging airport. The meals were passable, but hardly anything to be proud of, seats were cramped and flight was pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "staff was pleasant, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "turbulence was awful."
Pros: "I loved flying JAL! I've flown several times between the US and Korea, and this was the best trip I've taken thus far! It was comfortable, the plane was awesome with high ceilings and it actually felt quite spacious. The entertainment was also perfect with tons of stuff to choose from. The best part, though, was their exemplary customer service! I needed to transport cold insulin, so at the gate counter I checked with the gate agent to see if they could refrigerate my insulin since I had a long travel time to my home destination. She promptly found out for me and talked to the flight attendants and told me they would take care of it when I got to my seat. She even checked to see if I needed a special meal or not after I finding out I was diabetic. They were so kind! They even let me refreeze my cold packs in their freezer before landing so I could keep my insulin cold after we landed. It was a huge help and they seemed genuinely concerned for my well being and what I needed. I will now fly JAL whenever I can!"
Pros: "This airline is the most professional I have seen so far. They are extremely accommodating, very helpful, and very attentive. I didn't realize how orderly the Japanese culture is. We took off immediately. The ground crew actually waves bye and bows! No one in the sloppy US does that! They were very professional and juse down right respectful. Food and snacks were served often. Even good coffee!"
Pros: "Good food, and entertaimet!"
Cons: "Chair is way too hard."
Pros: "Premium economy is marginally better than economy in terms of seat."

Pros: "ANA flights are always well run and good enough."
Cons: "Their iphone applications could be smoother and more functional."

Pros: "More leg room than most flights."
Cons: "Baggage drop after on-line check-in very slow. Otherwise everything went very smoothly."
Pros: "the ANA folks at the departure check-in went out of their way to get me on my flight. You see, I got to the airport right before boarding. Their response? They literally escorted me through security, waited for me at the immigration checkpoint, and brought me to the boarding gate! I love ANA! :)"

Pros: "Staff were pleasant. Flights left on time. Really enjoyed the ANA lounge in Haneda."
Cons: "The food met airline standards, which are generally pretty low."
Pros: "Ground staff was very helpful, we had an overweight luggage and they kind out provided a complementary package box to redistribute the weight instead of charging us extra baggage fees.

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Film selection is ok."
Pros: "Sleeper seats, food and service"
Cons: "I asked to move my seat to an aisle seat in order to not disrupt a neighbor when needing to use the washroom and was kindly given another seat by the flight attendant but then was later asked to move back to my center seat. Having me move around caused confusion and made a ackward situation for me."

Cons: "Crew forgot to ask us for drinks upon serving us meals. I also had to repeat my order 3 times."
Pros: "My 96-yr-old father was given an airport wheelchair after we checked his own transport chair. He was wheeled through security and to the departure gate. We were advised they changed us to a bulkhead row w/an unoccupied seat adjacent to his. Twice during the flight one of the flight attendants came to tell him that she would help him off the plane so to wait for her after the rest of the passengers disembarked. The meal was very tasty.Chicken karaage was not crispy but I wouldn't expect it to be. The rest of the items were well seasoned with the right consistency. Dessert was a flan custard with passion fruit sauce (very Hawaii!), even including a few seeds from the fruit as garnish."
Pros: "Again, the flight attendants were kind and tried to be very helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system was difficult to figure out and maneuver around and it seemed like the choices of movies were all sad."

Pros: "I slept most of the way home so didn`t use the entertainment."
Pros: "Great leg room, staff was very nice, food and entertainment was decent."
Cons: "Flight to Japan and to Vancouver was way too hot. Tough because I wasn't able to turn down heat or increase fan above."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and the meals were pretty good"
Cons: "Every time I'm on an airplane I'm seated next to several really sick people.. I know this isn't something you can control but it really reduces the comfort any healthy individual can have. I also didn't like the really long delay for the baggage after the flight. The on flight movie selection had not changed on the return trip which was 16 days later."
Pros: "The food. the personable flight attendants. The whole experience is amazing."
Cons: "Lack of English movies on the ife. Mediocre headphones in business class."
Pros: "The service, the plane and even the food were all top notch."
Pros: "Japanese quality is good quality"
Pros: "Smooth operations, friendly crew, clean plane, free booze in coach!"
Cons: "Nothing really when flying coach. Second meal now like a box lunch instead of full meal. Cost cutting I guess. Seats are small but not as bad as United domestic. No major complaints."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Bumpy ride and no info of what was going on. A passenger next to me took his pants off and was sitting with his underwear. He did put a blanket after. Very annoying!"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. They were quick to help when a friend of mine wasn't feeling well on the flight. Great service!"
Pros: "The icecream"
Cons: "There was only one choice of meal left when they gave it to me:("
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "All old movies in English"
Pros: "The staff was polite and professional. We have no complaints at all."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment options (eg. movies) were limited compared with other airlines. However, we appreciated watching the local foodie guides to the Tokyo area."
Pros: "Great airline. If I give United 1 *, then ANA gets 4* in my book. The staff and flight attendants are very attentive to your needs, polite, always pleasant. I've been using ANA for my frequent trips between Japan and the states, they are consistent. The in flight food is good. You will get complimentary wine, Haagen Dazs ice cream dessert. Cathay Pacific also serve HD ice cream, but half the size on lunch meal. ANA serve on both meals."
Cons: "i could give ANA a 5*, but I think their web site needs work ! their web navigation is kinda confused, a little bit less intuitive. If you are in the US you need to log on to the ANA US site, the JP site is in Japanese and it will not redirect you to US. On line check in can get confused as a lot of time it would not recognize the booking number, you have to use a long 10 digit e-ticket number. My fight from Tokyo to HKG would let me check in and get seat assignment until 24 hours before the scheduled flight. The seat map shows all seat ps were taken without telling what is going on."
Pros: "Great service considering the extra ordinary conditions associated with the controls required during the Coronavirus pandemic."
Cons: "Cabin temperatures seemed to be very hot through the flight"
Pros: "Business seats great, personal attentive service; more great entertainemnt than I could consume! Business class almost empty..."
Cons: "I pre-ordered my meals, which were very beautifully presented andtasty, but did feel they weren't large enough. Dessert offerings lacking"
Cons: "Taipei airport lacks seating in general wait area. There is congestion and slow lines to proceed from there to larger waiting area below."
Cons: "Ensuring passengers left room for everyone's bags. There was a man who put many items up above leaving me no room for my bag in the bins >:("
Pros: "Good food and service - great airline"
Pros: "crew excellent and very efficient & professional"
Pros: "Flight was smooth."
Pros: "Great food. Nice seat. Easy check in. Nice crew"

Pros: "Crew was great and were timely in boarding and deplaning processes. They were willing to help when asked."
Cons: "As a 6’ tall, broad shoulder individual the seats were narrow and there was not much leg room. Fortunately there was an empty seat directly next to me which afforded me some space."
Pros: "Crew and efficiency of them"
Cons: "Their policy regarding check in luggages and carryon luggage wright limit policy"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "As with all airlines, seats were cramped and not enough leg room when traveling Economy"
Pros: "Yes both of those were great."
Cons: "The flight got delayed by 2 hours and then another 30 mins when we landed. This is my first time flying with Eva airways and all 3 times, it has gotten delayed by more than 2+ hours."
Cons: "plane was 2 hours late, which sucks. they don't tell you it is going to be 2 hours late. you couldn't enter the boarding area (in Taiwan airport) until one hour before departure. if you you are familiar with Taiwan airport, then you know the a then they tell you the plane will be another hour late."
Cons: "Food must have variety diversity"
Pros: "Crew did their best despite the poor circumstances."
Cons: "Be on time, even delayed time was not on time. Seats are tightly packed together. This resulted in cramped seats and not every row having a window. Aircraft pressurization is uncomfortable compared to newer aircrafts. No onboard entertainment system. Only serving of food is small snack and drink"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Pros: "Very comfortable Business Class seat, pretty good entertainment."
Cons: "Service seemed a little off, especially relative to a much shorter FUK-TPE flight a few days earlier. Flight attendants often approached from behind."

Pros: "Superb flight all around. Excellent seat, entertainment, food and crew. Cute Hello Kitty/Sanrio items too."
Cons: "Rather long delay in turning off the seatbelt sign after takeoff, despite smooth flying."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice"
Cons: "More space for economy"
Pros: "Less friendly ."
Cons: "Offer even water at times after meals."
Pros: "I travelled on Eva a few times a year, was used to and liked Eva."
Cons: "Arriving at JFK on time after 16 hour nonstop flight on Eva, we passengers were told the parking space was occupied and we had to wait one hour on the plane. The Eva ground crew had 10+ hours to arrange a space for the plane, as it steadily approaching its destination, and the arriving time was 10pm, hardly a busy hour of an airport. Another disappointment: as before, I took the bus provided by Eva to neighboring states. This night the arrangement was awful. Poorly organized Eva crew kept all on the roadside, with only three of the five buses next to us, we passengers waited in the open, without a schedule or clue. We were lucky for the night was warm. In a typical NY winter night, 10 Farenheit and windy, we‘d be hurt more."
Pros: "Bathrooms are clean. They gave you some bread and snack and water for a 2 hr ride."
Cons: "Food was cold - maybe can do room temperature but happy they feed you."
Pros: "Premium economy equal to NA/Euro business class"

Pros: "Exit row seats"
Cons: "Food was okay. Service especially drinks were sparse"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight seated in the exit row 45. I was amazed at the on board service. The attendants moved quickly also in a run without the usual frowns that I’ve seen on other airlines."
Cons: "The exit row seat 45C was too narrow. The cup of coffee I had near the end of flight tasted like halve coffee halve tea. Also the checkin line was too slow. There appeared to be more clocks standing around instead of attending the customers trying to check in."
Pros: "Flight attendants stand out as a great example of customer serve."
Cons: "Seats were tight"
Pros: "Flights attendants were helpful. Washrooms were regularly checked for cleanliness."
Cons: "Some people not make a line"
Pros: "check in, assistance, efficient, clean, all good"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and fast help with passengers needs."
Cons: "On long flights over 6 hours , I find that seats become very uncomfortable . I do stand up and stretch if it is available to do so. After 10 hours of flight travel my legs , back, and neck are very stiff and sore."
Pros: "The food was delicious and a majority of the staff members were nice and help full"
Cons: "Whenever I️ was sleep on my 16 hour flight nobody woke me up so I️ missed out on my meal. They have snacks to make up for It but I️ wish someone would have woken me up because I️ was really hungry."
Pros: "Great food & entertainment choices"
Cons: "The crew should have been more accommodating as I have a broken ankle and am in a cast and have to walk with crutches. It is painful and the only thing that helps the pain is to have it elevated. The crew was not accommodating to help me switch seats to one with more leg room."
Pros: "I had a question about my ticket and had to call customer service, and was speaking with a REAL PERSON who was actually helpful within 5 mins! An airline miracle. Very gracious checkin, Great inflight service."
Cons: "Try to get an isle seat- seats feel small."
Pros: "Very professional and efficient Crew as always, horrible seat comfort,"

Pros: "Good entertainment. all crew were very nice."
Cons: "Bread was not warm and salad were not good. The chicken meat in salad was tough. The seat was not comfortable And tight space"
Pros: "But the check in was late to open. Flight was scheduled at 11am but check in downstairs don't open y til 845. That's terrible making us wait there where there no seating or waiting area."
Cons: "Not comfortable"
Pros: "This review is for my flight to Philippines only as I cancelled my return to Vancouver to go to Europe. Comfortable seats in a new plane. IFE had a good selection. Food was good. Crew were friendly and helpful. Price was reasonable. Sleeping masks and earplugs were provided in the lavatory."
Cons: "My flight was able to be rerouted to Europe from Philippines. 2-3 month wait for a very small refund on my cancelled return flight (cancelled by me)."
Pros: "Great service, crew felt happy with their job"
Cons: "It was a really turbulent ride"
Pros: "Good seating..Good boarding. Entertainment was so-so system doesnt work very well"

Cons: "Although I understand that the crew has to take precautions but it was strange to see the stewardesses keep their masks and gloves on during the whole flight."
Pros: "Appreciate that the Desk attendant tried to sit our family together but couldn’t since it was a full flight. Also appreciated the vouchers handed out when flight was delayed 2 hours in Incheon."
Pros: "Clean plane, good cabin crew, and it was nice being offered a meal while only on a 2-hour flight,"
Cons: "Compared to other airlines the entertainment is not as good, and the tv screens are quite dated."

Cons: "no salt or low sodium option meals for people with heart disease and dietary restrictions. less repetition on same announcements that interrupts watching/listening to entertainment console."
Pros: "The service was hood"
Cons: "None at alnone"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 10 hours less with less than 24 hours notice. Had to call Asiana to change flight to a 1 stop flight (original flight was nonstop). Flight to Seoul from New York was also delayed by 8 hours and I ended up having to spend ~$70 for hotel/taxi due to arriving in Seoul past midnight. Horrible experience both there and back and don't think I would ever take Asiana again."
Pros: "All staff were very nice and kind. Best experience!"
Pros: "The check in crew in Fukuoka were excellent! Nice smooth fast flight. Will definitely fly with them again!"

Pros: "On our flights to Palau and our return flight to Incheon, I had entire rows to myself, which was sweet!! I was able to stretch out a bit and get come good sleep."
Cons: "Airlines have done a disservice to travelers by adding rows and packing passengers in like sardines. Thus making travel an uncomfortable nightmare for economy seats. Take out a few rows and add a premium economy section - that would be awesome! Plus the plane we flew on was old - still had ash trays. The attendants, while courteous were not very friendly and cocktails poured were not very good. And, the charger in my seat did not work - bummer. while I appreciate very much uneventful and safe flights to and from our destination, I will more than likely not fly Asiana again. I don't like giving poor reviews, but you can't know to fix something if you don't know it is broken."
Pros: "Comfortable seating and excellent crew! Plane was very clean and bathrooms well maintained throughout the 15 hour flight. The cabin crew were very attentive and helpful. I will fly Asiana again. Good movie options."
Cons: "Gluten free meals were so bland and unappetizing they were difficult to enjoy. Providing salt and pepper would help. Vegetables were undercooked ie potatoes too firm to cut easily. On the positive side the fruit was appreciated."
Pros: "Great food!"
Cons: "Flight departed and arrived almost two hours late. Unacceptable especially since it wasn’t mechanical but waited for a connecting flight. Now I may not be able to get a ride out of the airport and back to my camp in time for curfew."

Cons: "Every plane delayed."
Cons: "Broke my luggage. Twice in a row."
Pros: "By whatever reasons, the ventilation system at one of chamber was out of work and the cabin was so hot that keeping swearing all over the flight....

Pros: "I basically like flying Asiana airlines. Overall experience is considerable good. Crews are friendly foods are okay."
Cons: "Action movies selection seems to be limited. Snack onboard were not variety compare to other Asian airlines. Recommend to made some instant noodles avaiable !"
Pros: "I liked everything about the airlines, the flight attendants are so respectful and kind. They go out of their way to help the packager get comfortable and settle in there seat before and after take off. I have been a member with Asian Airlines for 6 years and won't change airlines for nothing even if I have to pay a little extra for great service."
Cons: "I have no complaints with this Asian Airlines."

Pros: "Everything! Food, the seat, entertainment everything! I cannot ask for more. Plus points for the cabin crew of flight OZ271, they are the best! ❤️"

Cons: "There were no problems with the flight."
Pros: "The service was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like about the airline"
Pros: "I got randomly upgraded. That was my first time flying business. It was pretty lovely. Lots of room, highly attentive staff that calls you by name."
Cons: "I guess the buttons that controlled the seat were confusing but I can live with that."
Pros: "Enjoyed an upgrade to upper deck of A380-800. Seats were very comfortable and privacy of having single seat was excellent. Entertainment was easy to enjoy. Service as always on Asiana was also excellent."
Pros: "Good food, polite crew, efficient and flexible with baggage."
Cons: "All of our 4 Asiana flights left late and arrived late, making us miss one connection on the way to Japan. We luckily allowed a lot of extra time going home because our flight was more than an hour late again."
Pros: "Nice choice of recent movies. Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was somewhat delayed."
Pros: "For the duration of 5.5hours, 1 main meal and 1 snack were served. Prompt drinks and meal service"
Cons: "No personal inflight entertainment. Only a few screens from the ceiling, with poor viewing angles."
Pros: "All the usual good things with Asiana -- flight attendants, politeness, efficiency in the cabin, good food."
Cons: "Upon arrival back in Seoul, the bridge would not work properly. We had to wait on the airplane for 45 minutes, causing all of us to miss the last buses from the airport to our neighborhoods. What is usually a 12,000 KRW bus ride turned into a 130,000 taxi ride. (The jimjilbang downstairs was full.) If they had brought out stairs and buses immediately, instead of waiting so long, we might have made it to the buses."
Pros: "No entertainment selection Did not eat the food Service was good No problems"
Pros: "Korean meal was great!"
Cons: "Outlets for charging phone would have been nice."
Pros: "On time. No issue with baggage. Food provided even though it was only 2 hrs flight and not exactly meal time. The foot rest was helpful."

Pros: "Flight quality was good"
Cons: "The return flight had delays."
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight overall - wish there was better food."
Cons: "It's not the airlines' fault, but the passengers next to me were a little strange and were always up in my space."
Cons: "When I missed a flight due to a missed connection this airline refused to rebook my flight directly. I had to go through just flying.com who were just as incompetent. I will never use KAYAK, justfly, nor Asiana airlines ever again. Poor customer service."
Pros: "see above"
Pros: "Flight crew was so kind, food was tasty"
Cons: "Headphones/headphone jack didnt work well and was too short to see the screens- they dont tip down; was difficult to hear announcements- the electronic speaker wasnt loud/clear enough"
Cons: "The cabin smelled very bad. Like sweaty clothes. Air quality not good. Also, too cold at times."
Pros: "Great crew. Great flight. Head Flight Attendant made sure everything went perfectly and her ability to speak English very well was just a bonus."
Cons: "Check-in process was longer than I expected, but still had plenty of time to get through security and to my gate."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and attentive. Best in flight service I have received in a long time."
Cons: "The plane doesn't have usb ports to charge the phones, and as there are no screens or anything else, make sure you bring your battery pack."
Cons: "The seats are small with very little leg room"
Cons: "None hate the experience"
Pros: "This was my first and last time I will ever fly with Swiss airline-it’s been 4 days and I still didn’t receive my baggage and I had all my medicines in them,that’s including my carry on bag too,because it was taking from me @ the gate and I was told I will get it at my final destination,which I didn"
Cons: "I just would like to get my baggage- which is been 4 days since my arrival and they can’t even tell me where they are at!!!...."
Pros: "Crew was kind and gracious."
Cons: "Hand carry was checked 3 different times. Goes to show that Swiss staff doesn’t trust its colleagues to determine if the bag passes muster."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Place for the legs and better food"
Pros: "Nothing, flight was cancelled after I electronically checked in"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "The crew were personable and the chocolate that was offered near the end of the flight was a nice touch."
Cons: "Cramped, cramped, cramped!!!!! The seat pitch was just so uncomfortably short so much so that when the person in front of me reclined his seat, the TV screen was a mere 1-2 feet away from my face making it impossible to watch anything without getting crossed eyed or a headache. This unfortunate situation has influenced this review greatly particularly because this wasn’t a 2 hour flight but a long haul one."
Cons: "I was asked to check my carry-on. I have used this carry-on more than 50x without an issue. I have even put it in the smaller compartments on smaller Bombardier jets. I don't have an issue with being asked to check luggage, but I resent being asked when others are allowed to take their carry-on onto to the plane without issue. Right in front of me while I was waiting for a baggage tag, others were being checked in with carry-on equal to mine and allowed to take it onto the plane. I can only surmise that my ticket limited me to one bag onto the plane, although they would not tell me this. This was not clear when I booked the ticket nor when I checked in on-line. I had a 40 minute connection in Zurich so was very concerned that my luggage would not make it. Luckily, it did make it to my next stop. Swiss Air seems to have different restrictions than other airlines which I have encountered before. I take ownership that I should be aware of a tickets restrictions but this was a multi-leg trip (5). However, I will tend to avoid Swiss air in the future, to avoid having to research their unique restrictions."
Cons: "The seats in the economy cabin are cramped together. If the person in front of your leans back you are almost trapped in your seat. There is little leg room and the cushioning is not enough for a long distance flight. There is no boarding control. People just line up and get on the plane in any order."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Quick passport control Friendly staff Short waiting time to board"
Pros: "The service and the crew were fine"
Cons: "Seats are too small and terribly uncomfortable on such long flights."
Pros: "Paid in advance 45.00 a seat to reserve! Otherwise they assign at Check-in! Still ended up with a standard not premium seats in center. I chose 2 side seats online but plane must have changed. Literally could not move. My travel partner ended up spilling wine on himself primarily due to this and 1/2 size drop down trays. Call button brought no help , had to get up and go retrieve steward in back myself!"
Cons: "Comfortability , mediocre service."
Pros: "Missed this flight because the first one was late"
Cons: "Seats are very cramped"
Cons: "Lost luggage’s. Delayed trip"
Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "Special GF meals care on board, friendly staff, good food and drinks"
Pros: "Everthing was great!!"
Cons: "Need to make it more clear that it is necessary to complete a second passport controle at the boarding gate....causing confusion for some travelers who are not aware of this extra step"
Pros: "The line for screening for initial security at Ben Gurion was ridiculously long. Almost one hour in line before we even could be interviewed."
Cons: "Boarding and in-flight experience were excellent."
Pros: "Small screens. Hard to use"
Pros: "choice of movies were very bad"
Pros: "flight left on time as schedule and the flight staff was absolutely courteous."
Cons: "The boarding process is very uncomfortable as the passengers are asked to board the plane without any specific order, regardless of where they’re sitting, instead of boarding them by groups."
Pros: "Basically the worst flight ever"
Cons: "Delays, tiny seats, terrible food, dirty bathrooms, no preparations"
Pros: "It was nice because plane was half empty so had quicker attention from stewards - everything was good."
Cons: "The headset outlet is still the old one, so you can't use your own ."
Pros: "Crew was good. Very polite. The plane was old. No place to charge your phone. The in flight screen required the use of a remote which was inconvenient when having to wake up my neighbor to pull it out of the armrest. Food wasn’t great. Skipped the last meal service. It was like flying 20 years ago. Not bad, but not as good as it could be nowadays."
Cons: "I bought economy class ticket! (I have a printout ticket as proof!) When I went to the airport i had a VERY UNPLEASANT surprise. I had a 23kg bag. Bording stuart said that my ticket is ECO LIGHT class and I don't have the right to any baggage. Worst thing of all was that the reason of my trip to Paris was my sister's graduation and half of the baggage was my formal wear and other half were presents for my sister! Your lack of transparency ruined one in lifetime special event- MY SISTER'S GRADUATION. I am very glad that you asked me for my opinion because I am using my free time to demand full refund, even tough the damage is much bigger than the cost of the ticket and it's irreplaceable."
Pros: "Everything is great when flying Swiss. From online checkin to boarding and throughout the flight. Thumbs up to Swiss. Simply a delight."
Pros: "Very attentive to children at boarding and in-flight."
Pros: "Excellent service, comfortable, clean, on time."
Pros: "Once staff arrived all went well."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for about 1pm and we arrived with another connecting flight to the Athens airport at 8am as that was our only choice. No staff arrived until 11am to check people in and take baggage. We were flying business and would have liked to check in earlier and make our way through security to the business lounge but could not and had to wait for three hours. It would have been nice to have one person on duty."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi on board."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "No USB. Entertainment was so-so."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. So patient and accommodating, even when passengers were a bit impatient. Cabin was clean, and it was good to have blankets and pillow on a long flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Food was okay but not substantial. Comfort was terrible in my seat - for some reason I had a seat with a metal box underneath so I could not stretch my legs. And the fellow next to me, in the middle, was over 6 feet and was VERY uncomfortable, even though he had legroom. There were good options for entertainment, but it was unreliable and had to be restarted once. Also, the screen was terrible quality and I could not see no matter how I adjust the screen angle or the light."
Pros: "Fantastic flight attendants, good food. I felt safe throughout the whole travel."
Pros: "smooth, professional, comfortable"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive. The check-in person was willing to check to see that I had a reclining seat. Friendly and accommodating attendants good wine offered in economy, water offered several times during the 9:30 hour flight. Pilots changed Flt altitude to accommodate for turbulence."
Cons: "Very little not to like on this flight."
Pros: "The chocolates shaped like soccer balls. The fantastic icecream"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, and also very skilled so that their service was unobtrusive, graceful, and helpful. They took great care to get people what they wanted, and I saw them fulfill a few special requests from the people around me politely and quickly. The entertainment selections were good. The variety of interesting musical selections allowed me to go the whole flight without running down the battery on any of my own musical devices. The seat space was comfortable, especially compared to domestic flights I've taken for the last 10 years. The enforcement of carry-on luggage rules meant the overhead compartments were sufficient for what was brought aboard and people weren't filling the foot-space with bags."
Pros: "Crew and flight service are excellent top notch. Also they are very friendly and helpful. Make flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Seats are too close together in coach, very cramped and uncomfortable if you are a tall or large person."
Pros: "Great food and sevice"
Cons: "Hard to sleep on the plane. Way too expensive to take a guitar as either checked luggage or carry on."
Pros: "Great service smooth flight"
Cons: "Wasn't a big fan of the stop over in Daresalaam where we sat in the plane and watched the cleaning crew do theirs work around us"
Pros: "Everything. All about my flight was great. Thank you."
Pros: "The crew were diligent in resolving the problem"
Cons: "I had purposely made an effort to resolve a possible problem by calling in before the flight. And even with an emailed ticket for my infant son, there were still problems. But the crew did well to resolve it."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seating"
