Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew did their best. The company, the policies, the times ... a different story."
Cons: "Stop boarding pets on a transatlantic 11.5 hours long flight - if the owners are nuts (although they swear they love their pets) air companies must be more responsible. The first air company that will refuse to cabin board pets will be my only company to fly for the rest of my life. Sometimes, saying NO is the right answer."
Pros: "The crew and the seat !"
Cons: "The food because of coronavirus the service was scaled back"
Pros: "The food is delicious, for a short 3 hour flight, unlike other airlines which they only give u snacks like cheeze it or crackers"

Pros: "Fligh on time."
Cons: "The food on board."
Cons: "Staff was not helpful at all."

Pros: "The seat is comfortable"
Cons: "i liked everything"
Pros: "I had only 70 minutes transfer time and had to spend almost all of that time standing in line to go through security after just arriving from another flight!! I ran to the gate and was the last person through before it closed. I asked about my two bags and was told they were accounted for. Hardly believing it but glad to at least have made it I boarded. When I arrived in Zurich, sure enough my bags arrived too! Was very pleasantly surprised!"
Cons: "Though no fault of Turkish Airlines, having to go through security after just getting off one flight was stressful even if it might have been necessary. Almost missed my flight. The security area is not properly designed for accomodating many people at one time and the officials (actually two cleaning personnel) who did not speak anything but Turkish were manning the entrance. Even when I showed them my boarding pass they just rudely shooed me away!"
Pros: "Service and bag policy"
Cons: "The house food"
Pros: "Flight attendants are super friendly and helpful. The food was excellent."
Pros: "Boarding, on time"
Cons: "Food can be better. Steward never brought the blanket and it was cold. Entertainment is not good and game did not work."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was great."
Cons: "There was no USB ports to keep a phone charged. There was no power outlets between seats to keep a phone charged."

Pros: "Turkish Airlines is a wonderful airline. The service was excellent and the food was delicious and plentiful. They are organized and helpful. On time and smooth flying and landing."
Cons: "Seats are very tight (for those of us who always have to fly economy). Wish there was more legroom."
Pros: "Spacious seating, even the last row reclines. Very good service. Free food and drink served throughout - including two warm meals."
Cons: "Boarding was organized but super time intensive. They group you together and then board in groups. Seems unnecessary. Can't they just boarding rows, like most airlines?"
Cons: "collecting the food trays long after you finished eating is annoying. Tray keeps sliding at you."
Cons: "They are simply liars!!! No shame, no responsibility they gave information that flight was canceled I'm MIA, September 8, 2017when I called them three times. But after Hurricane Irma, when I call them and ask for refund money for not having flight! ..They just simply lie !... like passengers don't show up. .just don't pay money! !! In this devastating time, that hepince in Florida! ...It's so shallow, not fair and not professional action, ether NOT RIGHT! !!....."
Pros: "N O T H I N G"
Cons: "Very unorganized and poor communication services"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, crew"
Pros: "The crew was kind"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed. We were told we would make the flight which we didn't. We had to spend 12 hours at the airport to await the next plane to Batumi. We were given lunch vouchers but what it applied to was substandard"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind, but the food was superb (not what I've experienced in the past on other flights). Those gift packs of a toothbrush/slippers/ eye mask was also so wonderful! That eye mask and ear plugs saved me during the flight and during my entire trip"
Cons: "While we took off/ landed softly, I felt that the overall noise that the plane had while in flight was loud, almost too loud to fall asleep without headphones."
Pros: "Perfect trip, seats comfortable and soft even in economy and having personal entertainment was a pleasant surprise. also good selection of films. Food was just a sandwich but better quality than other companies."
Pros: "Staff was very good"
Pros: "Was surprised to get a full meal on such a short flight. Very good food."
Cons: "Pretty average flying experience. The plane looked older, but that's nothing unusual"
Pros: "crew was very very nice!"
Cons: "not enough leg room"
Pros: "The food was delicious."
Cons: "The wait times were ridiculous and always off schedule. From the beginning of the trio to the end of the trio there was consitency in going off schedule and being forced to stand in lines for hours. I would not fly Turkish again."
Pros: "It was all good!"
Cons: "Except that in the same day I had two flights with Turkish Airlines and both of them had a delay."
Pros: "Food and beverages, both choices and generosity of portions and quality, excellent. Entertainment made long trip very endurable."
Cons: "Rediculous chaotic check in at JFK. Standing in line an hour for a 40 minute delayed departure with virtually no communication from staff. As I had connection to make, was very unnerving."
Pros: "The boarding process seemed to just be to get in a line and go for it, which was kind of nice to avoiding pointless zones. Pretty decent movie and tv selection, but on one flight my touch screen hardly worked to it was hard to watch anything."
Cons: "Beware, when you booo through kayak apparently you can't choose your seat so you get all middle seats...regardless of the fact that your preference is set to aisle or window and those seats are available. Food was prettt bad and it's also an hour plus to even get a drink of water. I was constantly dehydrated and thirsty."
Pros: "Comfortable and nice people"
Pros: "Food and beverage Entertainment"
Cons: "Waaaaay too hot on the plane. I was so uncomfortable as were serveral other people I spoke to on the plane"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "the fact that in my flight from turkey back to isreal the boarding guy added in hand written something that look like curse i got pic.... and was not nice ... dont know if it was because of the late time or hes mind was disturbed ... you dont act like this ... i do not know what he add but i dont think its a bless"
Pros: "Food is always great on Turkish airlines. Entertainment was also great."
Cons: "My flight experience was ruined because TK02 flight was significantly delayed to Istanbul and therefore 25 oassengers did not make it to their flights. The way crew handled this was terrible, they did not care at all! We ended up all waiting for 9 hour at Ataturk Airport."
Pros: "The wheelchair crew took my old mother of 70yr old njoh rose enjoh all the way to connect Zurich flight when she highlighted from Chicago O'hare flight to Istanbul. I give kudos to the wheelchair team at A300 Istanbul international airport atuku"
Pros: "Good in seat entertainment with many choices. In seat charging for devices."
Cons: "Leg room was unbearable for a 777, even for a 5'4" person! Only saw crew for the first 2 hours and last 2 hours of a 13 hour flight."
Pros: "I booked a round trip flight from IAD to NUE with stay over in IST. Try to make change flight date IST to NUE. I was told by the Turkish air agent to buy a new on way ticket from IST to NUE and use the origenal ticket from NUE to IAD and I did. The the nightmare begun when I try to get back to back to iAD. I was told my ticket was cancelled and have to buy new ticket. After 7 hrs exosting fight and inconvenience when they found out that I was not easily going to be hustled out $1100+ they finally reissued my tickets. During this time I witnessed how 10-20 customers old and young were being hustled for more money and some crying out of frustration. It was one of the worst experience I've had in my 45+yrs traveling experience."
Cons: "Customer service training. Mgmt must be involved in problem solving rather than sending customers to a phone both some of it that doesn't work to talk to folks that don't know what they're doing nor have the authority to mak decision."
Pros: "the crew was waiting for us, coming from Delhi, our connection was a little tight. the luggage did not make it to ZRH but was delivered the next day"
Pros: "Food and entertainment system were amazing. Everything else was at the level of good international airlines. Not at the Singapore Airlines level but far better than US carriers and at the British Airways, Qantas level"
Pros: "The crew was amazing! The entertainment was awesome and got me through the 12 hour plane ride just fine. Best airline I've been on this far."
Cons: "I come from a poor background and it's sad to see that in order to have first class it'll cost you more than what I make in almost 5-6 months just to have a little more comfort... I'm not a big fan of the comfort side of the plane. You only go back so far and if you have a middle seat like I did you have to try in sleep in an upright position practically looking forward. Extremely difficult and really uncomfortable. If it wasn't for the Cafine drinks and entertainment I would of probably gone crazy. Metaphorically speaking."
Cons: "40 min delay of the first flight got me into a waiting loop of 5 hours at Istanbul. Boarding included waiting time in the cold bus for passengers who arrived delayed. Security check was extremely slow - one xray machine for all passengers arriving from Dar. All in all had already better flights with Turkish"
Pros: "Great crew, especially on a long-haul flight. Decent food, considering how many people they were serving. Best bathrooms I have ever experienced on a large plane."
Cons: "Legroom, legroom, legroom!! If we are to be treated as sardines, at least pack us in oil. It gets worse every time we fly. Crew agreed; the airlines need to be put on notice. It makes their job impossible."
Cons: "Boarding from bus and no aero bridge"
Cons: "Short boarding time.missed the flight and had to pay."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, decent food and was left alone to sleep after a long day."
Cons: "Didn’t like that I missed original flight by minutes due to chaos of the airport and resolving the issue took about an hour but did like that I was rebooked on the next available flight for no extra charge and the attendant seemed sympathetic to my plight. A simple but important detail."
Pros: "Flight was good. The problem was the ticket purchased from Kayak was not as stated. Because there was a layover in Amsterdam, I was not able to check my bag all the way through to USA. AND I had to visit 5 counters to check bag, pay for bag at different counter and 3 other counters!"
Cons: "It would have been better if the ticket I purchased was the one that I selected. It was not as advertised. I searched for ticket that was translatlantic with one checked bag. BUT kayak booked an ECONOMY LIGHT fare that required payment. It was not as advertised and a total head ache for check in."
Pros: "Hydration station during the long flight. Leg room adequate."
Cons: "They checked my bag at the gate - despite me traveling all over the world NEVER having to check it - and would not take no for an answer, despite me having a 25 minute connection due to their one hour delay. Once boarded there was an incredible amount of empty overhead bins! Bag didn't make it"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The crew was very responsive. The dinner food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment touch screen was not responsive to the touch, neither for me nor for the other members of my family. The power socket in my seat was not working, but I could use that in my wife's seat."
Cons: "Perdieron las maletas"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The plane was was much too hot. It did not reach a comfortable temperature for my wife, who runs cold, for at least 4 hours."
Cons: "If the seats are more comfy for sleeping, I hurt my neck on that flight"
Pros: "The service from the flight attendants was wonderful."
Cons: "The seats are horrible without any lumbar support nor sufficient cushion for the seat. It leaves you sore all over. If the person in front lays back, they will be hitting your knees. The food for dinner was ok but the breakfast was horrible. Plain eggs with inedible spinach and tomatoes."
Pros: "Service was very good and lunch was delicious There werr good movies to my liking but a few of them which I would have enjoyed were not offered with English subtitles"
Cons: "The chicken pocket, wish we just had some fruit instead Also the last window seat in front of the exit row felt exceptionally tight"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The landing was exceptionally rough Also we were delayed one hour and then had to wait some more in hot bus until plane was ready"
Pros: "Staff was very responsive and quick to disperse food and beverages."
Cons: "I didn't care for the breakfast. The eggs tasted like the chicken and rice from the meal for dinner."
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "Lots of entertainment options but most were pretty dated and stale"
Pros: "More legroom and great crew"
Cons: "Food quality has gone down. A lot."
Pros: "Cabin staff were pleasant and effective."
Cons: "I got a headache on the flight; it did go away until I got good air in Frankfort. Bathrooms were a bit low in number necessitating long waits. This has become routine."
Cons: "You lost my luggage !!"
Pros: "We had seats in last row 46 during flight to Munich .,it wasn’t enough legroom for me ,mom was ok . Because we were the last people who received dinner we didn’t get any choices , food was just poor for both for us but another passengers were satsifeted Crew was fantastic the best ever ,very pleasant, informative , happy to serve us . I love flighting Lufthansa , they have wonderful people working there ."
Cons: "Food was poor , but drinks were great."
Cons: "This particular flight was delayed beyond reaching the next sep,so we have to rebook our flight threw Chicago in uncomfortable hurry."
Pros: "Smooth fast flight with good service!"
Cons: "Late taking off which happens, but they tried to make up the time in the air as much as they could on a short flight,"
Pros: "Everything was on time, the service was very nice as well. No problems at all."
Pros: "Flight was fine..."
Cons: "When two passengers got into a brawl over who knows what, it took two hours for the police to come on board and take them off the flight. They should have been removed quickly. Missed connecting flight. Messed my day up big time."
Pros: "overall experience is great"
Cons: "seats would have better"
Pros: "I was upgraded to a better seat and the flight was comfortable"
Pros: "Early flight, from getting on the plane to out at bag check it took less than an hour! Flight was not full so middle seats were also free."
Cons: "Nothing, great flight!"
Pros: "Friendliness of staff Efficiency"
Cons: "Overall a very good service and no complaints but if In House entertainment was provided it would enhance the experience."
Pros: "Crew were efficient and pleasant"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and could not recline seats"
Pros: "I always enjoy flights on Lufthansa. Very professional and nice crews."
Cons: "More movie options would be good."
Cons: "Boarding mix up, which was completely Lufthansa's responsibility, delayed my flight to Istanbul for one hour which caused my missing my connection with another airline. This in turn cost me the original flight and a new ticket purchase of at an exorbent price."
Pros: "crew very helpful and accommodating. served two meals and complimentary beverages including beer, wine, spirits"
Cons: "movie selection limited"
Pros: "Had no problems. Was a comfortable flight."
Cons: "I had requested a gluten free meal weeks before my travel and it was not confirmed for the Naples to Frankfurt flight. I think that if I already requested ahead of time that the flight crew should know about it and be ready to provide me with the correct meal even if I don't call back and confirm."
Pros: "We had nothing to complain about and much to be happy about. The seating in economy (seats 36A and 36C and an Airbus 330-300) was generous compared to other airlines we've flown recently (e.g., on a 777 with United on the way over, and that was "Economy PLUS!). The food was much better than the United flight, and really, it was almost too much. I'm home 14 hours after landing and I'm still not hungry. They were also very generous with the drinks and worked to keep us well hydrated with water and juices. The crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Overall, it was a great experience and I will certainly look to Lufthansa first for my next transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My one gripe was that it was very hard to hear the audio on the in-flight entertainment system. I even abandoned one movie I really wanted to see because I couldn't follow the dialogue. Also, I discovered late in the flight that the view screen pivoted and this would have helped in enjoying the videos more. Here's an idea for Lufthansa: how about adding "Tips" to somewhere in the Entertainment system to improve your seat, viewing, and other experiences. For instance, I wasn't aware that the head cushion on the seats were adjustable to better support your head. One last thing, on the entertainment system, it appears to be browser based, but sadly lacks a "Back" button equivalent."
Cons: "The 1-star responses correspond to N/A. Mt flight was :30."
Pros: "Not much. Pretty miserable round tip MCO-FRA-DXB-FRA-MCO."
Cons: "747 Economy seating a nightmare. No leg room especially when the seat in front goes to full recline. Had to use reading glasses to see video screen. Entertainment selections limited compared to other airlines in the trans-Atlantic market. Food bland, borderline edible. Cabin crew just going through the motions. Not at all friendly. Won't fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "So much continent flight with online check - in. I have to stayed over night at the hotel in Frankfurt and all my lagged come from Barcelona to the end of my destination. On my flight had one passenger got sick before boarding, the crew had responded very quick to support his life. And great entertainment."
Cons: "It was not Lufthansa but United Irlines. I wish it was Lufthansa."
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above And landing was extremely hard.!"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good! Pretty good selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Leg space was limited- even for a 5'4" person!"
Cons: "The food was terrible, boarding was chaotic, only ten movies to choose from."
Pros: "Extra leg room in the emergency exit area was great for a tall person. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and they switched the gates. The flight was overbooked. No entertainment offered."
Pros: "The food and the entertainment were excellent, staff also worked very well, and the airplane appeared well cleaned and maintained"
Cons: "The economy seats are too close to each other to be comfortable for extended periods of time (back to front ways - side space is reasonable)."
Pros: "Lunch was really good..yet,bread needs to be warm it adds desired comfort during the long flight."
Cons: "Breakfast need to include something else ,not just eggs. There should be an alternative for those who are allergic to eggs ,like me. Couple of hot wheat pancakes with Apple sause would do."
Cons: "They lost my luggage and have refused to help me locate them."
Pros: "Attentive staff. Plentiful food and beverage options. Headphones provided for individual monitor. Movies and more. Blanket and pillow provided. USB port for charging."
Pros: "Indifferent crew and confused/disorganised service!"
Cons: "Crew needs to be more engaging and helpful..."
Pros: "Meal surprisingly good. Crew friendly, professional, and efficient."
Cons: "Small seats 4 abreast--too close for any comfort for transatlantic flight. Would not fly this particular airplane again if possible."
Cons: "Nothing significant"
Pros: "good leg room and seats staff was courteous"
Cons: "not even peanuts..."
Cons: "Delayed. 3 hours on tarmac, no AC, then disembarked. Had to rebook another flight. Arrived to Vienna 9 hours late. The whole family lost one day of holidays. Will ask for compensation"
Pros: "Better staff than normally, which was both surprising and pleasant. Flight made it on time for the changeover in Zurich, which is very important."
Cons: "Extra charge for luggage - it showed up in the itinerary only after everything has been paid for. And even the paid suitcase allowed 23 kg only. It has been just over TEN years ago that you had two suitcases at 32 kg each included in price! Does the airline seriously believe that you can travel around the world with just a swim trunk in your pocket? This policy is an insult to any world traveller. We do not all go into an all-inclusive resort! The only drink offered during the flight was plain water, again a step down from before where they also offered others, e.g. orange juice. Seating - now that big persons have the right for two seats for the price of one, when will the same rational apply to tall people?"
Pros: "I wanted to let you know that we tried to make a chuck in and could not be made online. our flight left vancouver to Israel via Zurich. we were three adults and a nine year old girl, we separated all of us, only at the airport, we managed to get the girl to sit with her mother. that it's my daughter, i see it sternly, we can not be done twenty-four hours in advance of chuck in, and they separate us all, you are bad, and will consider in the future to continue your service, will i weel not recommend you to our friends. your company is turned on by bad people. we telephoned, and it was impossible to correct the mistake that your pepole made , only at the airport we were able to get a partial answer."
Cons: "Flight out of Vancouver was delayed."
Pros: "great seating and food. service was excellent"
Cons: "low resolution screen makes a movie not enjoyable boarding was mediocre, we arrived late and the gate didnt know we were coming. AirCanada had already rebooked me for flight 28h later..which was ridicules. Immediate compensation was the upgrade from Premium to First. Thank you."
Cons: "Bathrooms got very messy."
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "Sore all over and a lousy cough"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly with this flight. It boarded on time. The crew were all very friendly. I enjoyed the entertainment selections and found a tv show that I had been wanting to see. I managed to watch 2 episodes and look forward to watching more of the same show on my flight back. I ended up having the 2 seats to myself which was great. Extra legroom. I have no complaints at all."
Pros: "When I got sick, staff were friendly, helpful and soothing until the arrival of the ambulance. They made me feel much better during a very stressful situation."
Pros: "The Plane Flew"
Cons: "The plane was delayed. Missed my connection because the plane was delayed. No food choice, just whatever they gave me. Food was poor. Entertainment system is dated beyond belief. Staff was in no way helpful or informative regarding rebooking my flights. We were told we would be met by representatives when we got off the plane, we were not. (Same goes for my Flight from Hamburg, to Toronto) Leaving a good amount of people stranded and trying to make the final boarding call of their connecting flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "This flight was overbooked and even though I booked in November for this Dec 30th flight I was given a seat 30 cm across from the bathroom. The crew area for meal Preparation etc was also directly behindmy seat. Needless to say, I got no sleep on this eight hour flight, had to endure disgusting smells from the bathroom and people hitting my seat every time they passed by bc this is an area where there is not usually a seat. Everyone waiting for the bathroom was in my bubble. To add salt in the wound, the TV and light for reading also did not work. This was the worst flight I've ever had and I feel Air Canada put these 2 seats there as a money grab. No one should ever have to sit there, especially when paying full price."
Pros: "Tv screens and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "I paid 450 Euro for a return 2 hour flight & I didn't get a 20kg allowance. I don't expect a check in bag on a US or European budget airline but this is the national carrier. It's the first time I've paid for a checked bag in all my years flying with different national carriers. I.e. Qantas, Air New Zealand, Singapore to name a few. All in all. Air Canada charging like a national carrier but the baggage allowance policy of a budget airline. Not good enough in my opinion."
Cons: "no entertainment"
Pros: "No food given. Flight was delayed on the way there because a crew member called in sick -- making me miss part of my work conference. No entertainment on the way back to NL."
Cons: "Would have preferred Westjet but they do not offer a flight from NL to PEI."
Cons: "Crew never respond to the bells"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Staff all friendly and helpful, both at desk and in plane. Seats were pretty comfortable with sufficient leg room (I am tall), but if you are a wide person (or next to one) it would have been pretty cramped. Neither of my flights (to Newfoundland) were full so we all had a bit of extra space. Food was adequate but could be improved with fruit instead of dessert."
Pros: "Kept us up to date and gave us a lunch voucher."
Cons: "We had a 4 hr weight in St John's"
Cons: "there were no complimentary snacks"
Pros: "Seats were nice to recline and the in flight tv is much nicer than tablets etc. The in flight safety video is good and quick easy"
Cons: "Seriously? No free snacks? It's ridiculous that you want us to purchase snacks. Something small should be complimentary. Staff was in ok moods but a little edgy. The air was too cold."
Pros: "The flight arrived about 30 minutes early. Also, it left a little late. For me, the less time on the plane the better."
Cons: "Guy next to wanted to charge phone a laptop in USB port in front of me b/c his was our of order. This worked out OK but in a small space it's not so good. He was bare foot too. Take of your shoes but wear socks, please....Plane was not hot, actual a litter chilly."
Pros: "Cabin service was pleasant and professional, ambient lighting dimmed for sleeping (it was quite late), restrooms were clean, and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Pros: "I liked the clean cabin, decent service during meals and overall amenities offered. The plane itself was quite nice and more comfortable than most."
Cons: "The food seemed to be quite a small portion. The chicken entree was normal size, but lacking in taste. The side was also bland in flavor but a good mix of veggies. I would have enjoyed another small snack, such as cheese and crackers or some such. The movie list was fairly good with somewhat recent items. The TV list was lacking in choices, it seemed. However, that may be the content of modern TV. Access to the toilets were often hindered by staff, especially in the rear of the cabin. We were 45 minutes late. I was already booked on a flight 5+ hours later, which was nice. However, I was given a only a food voucher of 31CHF. The amount was wonderful, but they offered this at a time when I had already eaten on the plane and was not hungry at all. I could only buy a few things to eat or take with me, and the rest of the amount was wasted. Alternatives, could have been a partial refund, a visa gift card, an upgrade on my flight back, etc."
Cons: "4 hour departure delay"
Pros: "Boarding and deplaning were easy and pleasant. The 4 hour wait passed pretty quickly. The seating was tight but expected. The flight was smooth, the crew friendly and responsive. Plane was clean, bathrooms clean, nicely kept that way throughout the flight. I did have help reconstructing my import-export card."
Cons: "Space under the seats is smaller than expected. With passengers waiting in the aisle to get their seats, I had a second to decide what to take out of my one carry-on before putting it in the overhead bin, and as a result, was without some necessities during the flight. Pearson is a problem. Flights from everywhere were backed up behind a single person operating in security, and hardly any AC personnel there could speak English clearly. The confusion & wait time pretty distressing to most people in line. I had 4 hours to the next flight so wasn't worried, but waited 1 hour in line in the airport hallway before getting in to present information to security. Situation at airport is not good at all. I'd try to avoid Pearson as a transit point if I could, in the future. The music channels were so distorted I couldn't listen to any of the offerings. Too bad about that, but it didn't ruin the flight. Arrival in Zurich was on time and easy."
Cons: "Everything. Plane was ready to leave on time but had a delay of almost an hour due to construction in Toronto. Connecting flight was held in Toronto and despite getting to gate almost an hour before departure, they changed passengers to another flight causing total delay of four hours. Air Canada staff were indifferent and uncaring. Unfortunately with no real choice in airlines to Newfoundland we are stuck with Air Canada."
Pros: "a lot of leg room, fast boarding, nice screen, cool window with adjustable darkness."
Cons: "all my food were not covered when hostess delivered the tray, salad was missing, apparently it fell into the trolley while she pulled the tray out. and then i couldn't eat it because it was frozen. food quality was just really bad; whenever the crew passed by they were speaking really loud like to the other side of the valley, probably not necessary; the seat itself has a fancy look but the cushion is not comfortable at all, couldn't really rest one's head on it as it would just keep sliding sidewards . another thing that the airline can't really help- baby crying & screaming all the time and playing toys with music, couldn't get any sleep at all... perhaps a "kids zone" like trains have would be good for planes.. ?"
Cons: "The horrendously long lines going through security!! I am 77. My husband is 81. Standing in those very long lines was extremely fatiguing. To the point we are rethinking ever flying again. They were bad bookends to an otherwise great trip."
Pros: "Transatlantic flight with charge for a beer? No free entertainment, not even audio? $10 for iPad rentals? Macaroni & Cheese as main dish?"
Pros: "Trouble free"
Cons: "Very costly - then we were hit with an extra $172 in baggage fees for 1 bag each."
Pros: "Flying in the air"
Cons: "Promising the mob my first born son to pay for a flight home"
Pros: "Same as first leg of journey...."
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Pros: "The price of the flight was excellent and the service totally reliable."
Cons: "Small aircraft for a fairly long overnight flight. Made it difficult to rest as the flight was full."
Pros: "Let the announcements be delivered in both language successively."
Pros: "Same. I was well taken care of despite the weather delay. Crew was friendly but more stressed and a little slow. Seats were comfortable and there was more leg room than normal."
Cons: "Not enough time with the lights off so we could sleep easier during the long flight."
Cons: "Kid crying and yelling the whole flight"
Cons: "very comfortable flight with free movies."
Pros: "Business class compartments. Excellent by all standards"
Cons: "the meal served was overcooked, tasteless. The quality of the cutlery was poor even the wrapping was so poor. I travel internationally twice or three four times a year but this was my worst experience as far as the foood was concerned."
Cons: "Long time till take off."
Cons: "I find it very strange that you have to pay extra to ship a bag. Air Canada advertises that all fees are included in their fares. However you are getting hit at the back end after you make your booking. Just about everyone travels with a bag to ship. After having to Leave fort Mcmurray due to loosing our home we had to pay an extra fee to ship three bags. It does not do much for the image of Air Canada be a leader in the industry and be up front all the way."
Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."
Pros: "Boeing 787 is a terrific modern aircraft."
Cons: "Due to an hour+ boarding delay, the gate area was overwhelmed with people concurrently boarding international flights at two comingled gates. Overlapping PA announcements, both live and prerecorded, had lots of folks confused."
Cons: "The food was not that great. Very less in quantity. Vey low quality. Even Chinese airlines offers better food while traveling from Vancouver to Beijing. The airlines should improve their food services."
Pros: "The airplane landed perfectly"
Cons: "The seating are small"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Comfort seats"
Cons: "The seats were very cramped and the cabin was very hot for the entire flight to the point I couldn't sleep."
Cons: "Had to wait on the plane for an hour before takeoff for a 2.5 hr flight."
Pros: "first flight was cancelled: second flight was 4 hours late so I did not get on it because I would miss connections and any later flight would put into Kiev at 1 AM... thus 3 nights with no sleep. I then cancelled."
Cons: "first cancellation was understandable but everything after that was a fiasco including waiting 11 hours in Customer Service line to rebook cancelled flight."
Pros: "3 seats to stretch out and sleep"
Cons: "4 seats to stretch out"
Cons: "Seat was too narrow. Flight delayed 4 hours."
Cons: "Seats are very close together and when someone reclines the lap tray is on your lap. Nothingnthe crew can do - since it comes from upper management"
Pros: "The food was really good."
Cons: "Temperature in the plane was way too hot. No AC plug anymore on Swiss planes. This is a really big problem as their entertainment system is not optimal. There is of course USB but does not allow to charge a laptop. Leg space is a nightmare (I’m 1m96). Other airlines are better"
Cons: "If the flight had not been cancelled!"
Cons: "1.5 delay and no help offered to make my connection and not miss it."
Cons: "THERE was NO flight! WTF were you sending me reminders for!!!!! There was complete disruption here, preparing for a surprise flight that did NOT exist!"
Pros: "Very smooth ride"
Cons: "Foos was mediocre"
Pros: "Complimentary wine"
Pros: "Everything was okay. No complaints as such."
Cons: "It took a while for the plane to take off after boarding.m"
Cons: "Crazy cold all flight long, made me even waking up. They should have served gloves and hats."
Pros: "Flight attendants fixed my meal issues. Plenty of movies to pick from."
Cons: "Wouldn't let me select a seat at check-in, meal selection only worked for return flight, and the airline confirmation number provided by Kayak wasn't accepted by United. Kayak referred me to Swiss Air's website rather than United's. The whole check-in process was a convoluted mess when I've never had any issue with other airlines. I'm a slender guy with broad shoulders and the middle seat felt very crowded when surrounded by medium build people. Didn't manage to sleep a bit on an 8 hr red-eye flight."
Cons: "Dirty airplain, 12h flight, the food a disaster, crew that don’t know to smile, restrooms dirty the igienic paper and a lot more...."
Cons: "would like fruit as desert, not ice cream."
Pros: "Everyone was so friendly and nice!"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "United got me from Dulles t o Zurich. The boarding, flight, and food was as expected."
Cons: "Not being able to select my seat in advance of the day before the flight is not ideal."
Pros: "On time courteous staff excellent service"
Pros: "Wifi wasn't working. People were loud and rambunctious."
Cons: "The boarding process with United is always a mess. Lines way longer than necessary and spilling into the main walk area of the airport."
Pros: "There was vegetarian options in the food and it was good."
Cons: "I could not initially check in online since the flight was operated by United. It would have been good for the ticketing agent to tell me I should contact United and give the United Confirmation number. Also the crew were somewhat tired and even seemed a bit irritable. They wanted as few questions as possible."
Cons: "You failed to properly put me on a plane"
Pros: "The crew on board was very nice."
Cons: "The Flight itinerary said Swiss Airlines but it was actually United Airlines. I almost missed my flight. How is this possible."
Pros: "Direct with a great price!"
Cons: "Food was just ok....."
Cons: "False advertising it was a United not a Swiss flight"
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Agent took an hour trying to figure out how to check me due to the connecting flight being under a different carrier. This is clearly something I couldn’t do anything about. kayak allowed me to book a flight and expect that no matter the number of carriers, there should not be an issue tying the connection with the other flight at the time of check-in. Because of the delay, my husband and I sat apart on am 8 hour flight and because we both were assigned middle seats, no one wanted to sswitch with us. The check in staff was very unfriendly and seemed stressed and overworked. United needs to ramp up on resources quick. The flight crew were very unpleasant. It was just the worst of all flights."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, good dinner, friendly personnel and good entertainment choices"
Cons: "We were delayed, apparently due to missing luggage. They estimated 10min but it probably took over a half hour. This affected our connecting flight."
Pros: "The boarding was a bit confusing by having another carrier handle the boarding. It was a Swiss airline but we had to check in with United...? Entertainment was great, easy to use. Flight was seamless with no rough turbulence. Smooth landing. Very good experience in all."
Cons: "The food and comfort could have been better, not bad overall. The fact that the connecting flight info (gate number) could have been shown on the screen much sooner so there would be a smooth transition,"
Pros: "Everything the flight but the food was satisfactory with United and not accompanied with food"
Cons: "Food not satisfied or accompanying with ex food because portion was to small"
Cons: "My 1st class seat was broken but the food was excellent as was the service and we arrived early."
Cons: "Whether it is Kayak or Swiss, you should warn passengers they can't enter Kenya with a passport that expires within 6 months. I had to miss my flight and get a new passport before I could fly."
Pros: "Crew, leg room, and entertainment."
Cons: "We had to be redirected because the plane's instrument landing system (ILS) failed. We were redirected to another airport where they had to make repairs and then fly back from Geneva to Zürich Switzerland. It made for a very long flight."
Cons: "I paid $50 extra for a flight to leave at 5 instead of 8 and they ended up so late that the cheaper flight left before we did. Overbooked and packed to the point of immobility."
Cons: "United check-in at IAD was chaotic. Worst process I have ever seen."
Pros: "Constantly getting beverage service and so many movies and shows to choose from."
Pros: "Punctuality, efficiency and courteous and prompt service."
Cons: "Only that WiFi is too expensive"
Cons: "We reserved wheelchair assistance prior to the flight. We had to wait an extended amount of time to actually get the wheelchair assistance with 5 kids 7 and under. Due to the wait we almost missed our flight, we were literally the last to board the plane. We were hoping to grab some breakfast for the kids as we had a long flight and did not have time to do so because of this delay. This is why we called ahead to reserve the wheelchair. The people checking in did not seem to care about the delay and only told us to be patient. Sad, unfortunate experience with accessibility issues."
Cons: "Over an hour half late getting home, the flight was delayed again."
Pros: "The kindness of the crew, was having a panic attack.They calmed me down with a smile an plenty of water.Thanks"
Cons: "I would have liked more nuts ,"
Pros: "Flight ran late. Had to check carry on (how do you have more seats than you do carry on space)? Good crew, flight sucked."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, causing major inconveniences, especially as I was on my way to a funeral Only compensation was a food/beverage voucher equal to the value of 5 Swiss Francs, enough to buy a bottle of water despite HOURS wasted"
Pros: "I had a comfortable flight it was on time the people were congenial everything was good."
Cons: "Kayak did not notify me 24 hours in advance for my flight itinerary. I was a little disappointed in this."
Pros: "Great flight. Pilot flew away from hurricane."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good air craft, on time."
Cons: "Wifi and tech issues."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and welcoming when service was provided. The food was delicious - quinoa salad was unexpected and delicious. Also enjoyed the ice cream at the end of the meal"
Cons: "The flight on the ticket stated it was a Swiss flight operated by United. When we arrived we asked which kiosk to check in and we were misinformed. It would be a time saver if the airlines would educate their employees on where the customer should check in."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight ! This was our connecting flight so we have to stay there (Newark) till the next day 6pm with our own expenses."
Cons: "The flight kept delaying over and over again and they landed on another airport which delayed my arrival to my final destination even further."
