Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Time schedule Better customer services"
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 great! Food was actually very good! However seats are very tight in the economy class...I’m 5’6” and 130lb and had a hard time during the 10,5h transatlantic flight.."
Cons: "No complaints about anything but the seats on this particular aircraft: Boeing 777-300ER... very tight!!! Ok for a few hours of flying but not for an 11 hour flight!!!"
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: "1.5 hour delay departing put a slight damper on this flight but otherwise it was fine."
Pros: "Service was fine, on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "* Online checkin failed * Sit selection was not honoured * Sit was uncomfortable * Was last to receive luggage after landing, even though they had a "business - priority" sticker on them"
Cons: "We were happy with everthing"
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: "We have been flying Swiss for years and they are the most reliable and best organized airline, we have ever experienced."
Cons: "I didn't notice that I had booked some sort of new economy light category where checked baggage is no longer included and to check baggage when booked into this class cost $60 per bag per flight. So overall on the trip I paid $240 extra for luggage alone."
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: "Left on time. Quick flight."
Pros: "There was too little space between rows. Sometimes it was too difficult to watch a movie because the screen was too close to my face."
Pros: "We called for seats 23 hours prior to flight. To our amazement we were assigned to an exit row."
Cons: "It was an easy 2.5 hrs. flight at which a small warm quiche was served. Nice surprise."
Pros: "i liked the food and the crew. they were nice."
Cons: "the flight was good. nothing to not like."
Pros: "I got a surprise upgrade to Business Class where the service, food, and comfort were all excellent."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost an hour while we were on board. (ultimately not the airline's fault), If I hadn't been in Business class, it would have been very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great food, snacks, and entertainment."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Small plane with very uncomfortable thin hard seats. Could feel the ride on this plane. Food not great. No entertainment on board."
Pros: "Good and fast service"
Cons: "The size you allow for the hand baggage is insufficient"
Pros: "Abosolutely nothing i paid extra for the good reviews i found online but the service was so poor i am disapoi ted i paid that nuch extra for a terrible experience"
Cons: "Entertainment didnt work for the entire trajectory I requested assistance and was ignored every time I requested a vegan meal and was not provided one Boarding was long and disorganized Bathrooms were so dirty, we had not taken off and the barthrooms smelled terrible"
Pros: "Swiss flight zrh to ord was great! Great crew, excellent food and service, comfortable seating, great entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "The airline changed a seat reservation after I paid for it. The Swiss support staff told me on the phone they would call me back. They never called back. I called again and was told the seats are changed and I can’t do anything anymore. The return flight seats also disappeared from the reservation. I had also paid for it. The support staff when I called again put back the seats for my return flight. I tried to check in online. Not working. Tried at least 50 times. Not working. Called the support staff. They told me to call the check in support center. I called the check in support center at least 50 times where mi was told the staff are busy and could not answer the call. I called at 6:00am next day where I was told by the check in support staff that my ticket had an issue which they did not know exactly what was the issue but prevented me to do a check in. I drove more than 2 hours to the airport where finally I could check in but I was told that my return flight seats had disappeared again. They managed to put them back again. I hope this time it’s finally ok. The support staff on the phone told me I could get reimbursed for the seat reservation I had paid for for the on going flight. The Swiss staff at the airport told me there would be no refund. Swiss is terrible"
Pros: "From the kind stewards to the easy meal service to my peace of mind, knowing I’ll be well taken care off - SwissAir is the same gem it’s always been."
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: "We flew Miami to Zurich, then Zurich to Rome. The international leg was awesome. The intra-European flight was less impressive. We “self-boarded” which was new to us - and wasn’t explained. The seats were smaller and there was only the drop down screens for every 2-3 rows, but otherwise, for a less than 2 hr flight, it was fine."
Cons: "Boarding wasn’t fully explained for those of us who are not Swiss or German. I slept thru “lunch,” which apparently was a sandwich - but that’s more than many American airlines provide you on similar flights!"
Pros: "Good service - including snacks and drinks. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Upon boarding, the agents in the airport gave us a hard time over a bag that definitely met carry-on requirements. Almost made us check it, and then changed their mind last minute. Very unnecessary/dramatic situation, especially since we flew with that bag via carry-on multiple times (and on even smaller planes)."
Pros: "Swiss Air is very nice, planes are clean, snacks on board were fantastic!"
Cons: "Why the ridiculous amount of money to check a small bag? For this reason, I would not fly Swiss Air. My fancy sandwich was not worth CHF 50."
Pros: "Swiss is always a tad nicer than the alternatives"
Pros: "the food was delicious, the movie selection was great, the seats were comfortable, the plane was chilly but they supplied us all with nice warm blankets, and I prefer it be cold over hot on the plane any day."
Pros: "Great Food and very pleasant personnel."
Cons: "Choices of music and movies."
Pros: "Nice sandwich and chocolate."
Pros: "A snack was actually served on board! With a beer if desired."
Cons: "Change of planes at gate produced some boarding confusion."
Pros: "EXCELLENT LEG ROOM"
Cons: "We had almost 8 hours delay"
Pros: "The crew was entertaining and pleasant. The flight was short and easy."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, blankets very nice."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable, and arm rests between the seats don't go up all the way. Boarding was not well organized, not done by rows from the back to the front so a bit chaotic. As with all airlines in economy these days, the food was very mediocre, and the overall comfort of the flight was pretty poor."
Pros: "Staff was polite. Offering water once in a while was nice. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The promotional video for Swiss Air was way too long. Should have a way to bypass it. I understand being forced to watch the safety video but the promotional video is annoying."
Pros: "Entertainment options were pretty good."
Cons: "If people leaned the their seat back it was very uncomfortable and hard to get in and out, eat and or watch the tv."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants. Clean planes."
Cons: "Seat pitch too small-no room. Food was not good. Outdated entertainment movies"
Cons: "The flight crew was horrible. The desk crew inept. A wheelchair was requested but not there on checkin. Pre boarding did not happen as was supposed to. Older person male at desk was rude, insulting and sarcastic. This did not happen on Boston end. The person was there with wheelchair at the Boston gate and assisted us. Not in Zurich. What about handicap travel? Swiss????"
Pros: "Coke Zero was available."
Cons: "Limited selection of movies and tv shows and only one food option."
Pros: "So far so good."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled. Had to sleep in Zurich overnight. Airline covered the hotel and dinner bill though"
Cons: "Next morning the flight was delayed . Lost time in Rome and a night in Rone hotel"
Pros: "Ok food and ok entertainment"
Cons: "Plane was very hot and there were no air conditioner valves so we had to sit in a hot plane for thirty minutes. Seats didn't recline at all so sleep was out of the question. Just a very miserable flight overall."
Pros: "We were able to purchase an upgrade at the airport -- was a great experience."
Pros: "Beautiful new jumbo jet"
Cons: "Changed plane and seats so boarding was delayed"
Pros: "Short flight. Not much is expected. 3 stars for no rating, except comfort. Small seats/felt cramped. Not a huge deal since it's a short flight."
Cons: "No negatives or anything that caught me off guard."
Pros: "Nicer plane, on time"
Pros: "Service was good. Flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "The departure area at terminal 1 YYZ was crowded and not the most comfortable experience"
Pros: "Reliable airline."
Cons: "Overly strict on luggage size and weight. I’m talking about 0.1 kg difference. I was attempted twice to check the only small case I have, which is an exact fit to Lufthansa standard. Very annoying. Won’t fly LH again. British Airways is a lot better."
Cons: "Not much legroom and no tv’s on a 10-hour flight"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Free drink and snack. Comfy seats and very easy boarding process"
Pros: "Super service. From gate in Frankfurt to Rome."
Cons: "Communication on which luggage carousel our luggage was going to be on. The screen said, carousel 11 when in actuality, it was carousel 10. Very confusing...and caused me a delay. That’s the only frustration in the entire trip so far."
Cons: "Space was limited"
Pros: "The airline staff was great. Everyone really helpful."
Pros: "1st Class is a joke. They leave the middle coach seat vacant. You do have more overhead storage since there are fewer people in "1st Class". Otherwise you may as well be in coach. For flights within Europe this appears to be the standard. Save you money fly coach when traveling within Europe."
Cons: "The seat and service."
Pros: "Much shorter flight time."
Cons: "My experience on the second flight was completely different from the first. Staff was not as friendly. Food was bad. No entertainment due to short flight time. Not as good of an experience."
Pros: "Ended up flying with air canada after they switched us"
Cons: "Lufthansa switched us three times , and then when we got to the airport in toronto it was air Canada. They found our grandparents tickets but not ours. Ridicule our flight was supposed to be only 1h layover, inatead it’s 6 and we are going to miss all our next travel accommodations."
Pros: "It was overall a great flying experience."
Cons: "One of my connections was way too short. I almost missed my flight. I had to run!"
Pros: "Boarding was automated gates was easy."
Pros: "Once again, the in-flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "The Frankfort airport is a nightmare. They have loooooooong gateways, so when I Finally got through security FOR THE THIRD TIME, it’s a 10 minute, speed-walk to the gate. Again, a flight delay was the only thing that made the connection possible. I made it to the gate with 3 minutes to spare, so no time for the bathroom, no time to get lunch or even a bottle of water, no time period. And at the end of it all, my bag is lost."
Pros: "There's nothing much that's positive to say about this leg of our journey."
Cons: "Not only was the flight delayed, but there was confusion at the gate for boarding of even first or business class. We had to carry our luggage down 2 flights of stairs to get on a bus, which then transported us a very long ways away on the tarmac. Then it was an older model plane and the engine noise, even though we were up front, was extremely loud! It was somewhat worrisome. The food was terrible and by the end of the 90 minute flight our rears were sore from the poor seat cushioning. Not a good experience at all. All of this was after a terrible experience and delay just trying to connect flights within the German airport and the security delays that probably would have made us lose our flight if it wasn't delayed. There needs to be a better system if you are not staying in Germany but just connecting flights from the same airline!"
Pros: "Air Canada is a great airline too"
Pros: "The service to clients number one. I like"
Pros: "Served sandwiches even though 1.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Slow and unorganized boarding. Crew was not outwardly friendly."
Cons: "Lost a whole day and a half of vacation!"
Pros: "Efficient crew. Quick service, quick flight."
Cons: "No negatives."
Pros: "The crew was great, the food wasn't bad and the seat was comfortable and I am very tall"
Cons: "Delay for one hour"
Pros: "Huge, new plane, lots of helpful crew, personal entertainment screen, chairs laid back more than typical"
Cons: "Window arm rest didn't move up, boarding was crazy because YYZ airport doesn't have the format to hold lots of people, how to board was a bit confusing, and turbulance."
Pros: "Our stewardess from Toronto to Germany was the best that I have ever had."
Cons: "Great trip."
Pros: "The crew. They made an uncomfortable flight acceptable."
Cons: "Boarding confusing and flight experience poor. The crew was the only nice part. The rest, not worth the money."
Cons: "Smelly plane,uncomfortable chairs, AC didn't work properly (hence the smell).No screens, spotty Internet."
Pros: "Professionali customer service. Food and beverage service very good and generous. Love the European hospitality."
Pros: "The flight was really on time and the flight crew was just amazing. The overall experience was exceptional. Will recommend this servic to any one who will like to travel"
Pros: "The flight attendant was very professional. The flight itself seemed quick and easy, and I believe we landed early despite being delayed for takeoff."
Cons: "I wish the head rests had the "wings" that help keep your head from rolling back and forth. Also I wish we had an option for our snack."
Cons: "The boarding gate was changed three times. I fell asleep at one of the gates. Luckily I woke up and realized the second change in time to still make it there."
Pros: "My trip was from IAH to FRA by Lufthansa flight"
Pros: "Good entertainment options, large bathroom area on a lower level"
Cons: "Food options and space"
Cons: "2 hours late"
Pros: "the magazine selection prior to flight, bottle of water in front of each seat and crew were great, the pilot's landing was amazing! The seat in front of me had weird legs that made the room under the seat smaller than other seats around me. So you couldn't fit in the carryon fully under it as you could under the seat diagonally from me, however, this ended up being a huge plus since I could use the legs of this chair in front of me as stepping places to place my feet during flight. Since airline does not provide foot rest, it was great to have this to elevate the feet for a long flight. More considerations should be give to provide footrest or at least these kind of foot elevations."
Cons: "The dinner and breakfast were a bit disappointing, but not bad and not a deal breaker at all since the rest of the flight was wonderful. I noted comfort as ok, but that's applies to all airlines - the seats in economy and no footrest is very uncomfortable, but that's on all economy flights, so no deduction of points there. I do want to note that I needed a boarding pass at the gate and stood in line for quite a while (I was first in line) before I was even acknowledged by a lady who ended up helping me eventually. But she was so cranky! (there were 2 ladies - one busy helping the crew and putting around barrier - she was fine, the other with a head covering (putting this hear just to distinguish the ladies as one was doing a great job)- not sure what she was doing, but she plainly ignored me standing at the desk in front of her, I didn't say anything, just patiently waited until she acknowledged me, and then she printed the boarding pass for me, but she was way to cranky to be in the job that she is in - no need for that kind of attitude."
Pros: "Food, very well organized crew"
Cons: "No leg room, long flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and resulted in missing FRA - DEL flight. No help at Air Canada with rebooking missed flight."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Small leg space"
Cons: "It was a transatlantic flight in coach. There is no way to make that a pleasant experience. Entertainment system was down. Ran out of one dinner option."
Cons: "Lost my Baggage for 2 days."
Cons: "Breakfast was just a roll. I would have preferred eggs."
Cons: "This was a united flight. The personal was not helpful, only in helping me communicate with the airport in Rome to change my flight. I had to pay 97 euros for this change. I am upset and think it is not fair that I need to pay for a problem united had with their flight. I also think star Allience failed as they were not able to resolve the problem with their partner airlines."
Cons: "My connecting flight to Rome wasn't listed on any monitors, and four people couldn't find Terminal A on the map. Fortunately I found some fellow Americans who also couldn't find Terminal A , lower numbered gates, from our current Z gate. We went to the right, following most disembarked passengers and signs for some A gates....a mess! In the end, we had to go all the way back, past our original gate to a Customs area where they just stamped our passports and onward to our gates. It seemed like the signs only helped if you were going in the correct direction to begin with. Even my German friend said how bad that airport is for directions!"
Cons: "The delay and the lack of movies. Seats are very small. I was sitting near a larger passenger and it was very tight. We had over two hours delay for mechanical problems with the plane."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "I was seated in an exit row and there were pillows and blankets made available to every passenger."
Cons: "The scheduling of the in flight events made no sense. The cabin was dimmed for take off (logical, given that it was a red-eye). However, once we were at altitude, the lights were put back on to serve dinner. Several people were woken up by this and it took like 1.5 hrs because its a big plane. Also, it was like 9-10pm local time by this point so dinner made no sense! Then the lights were dimmed and people tried to sleep. The lights were turned on 1.5 hrs prior to landing to serve a light breakfast. So, 6.5 hr red-eye turned into about 3.5 hrs of actual sleeping time. I would've preferred to be left alone and given a bigger breakfast."
Cons: "I used to reserve seats without fees, but Lufthansa airlines requested a fee when I tried to reserve seats in advance."
Pros: "The breakfast, one piece of poundcake, that was the only highlight, and one decent size bathroom."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized, nobody knew what was going on, but the biggest disappointment is there were no movies there are no video screens on the entire plane so unless you bring your own device and have pre-downloaded Air Canada app there are no entertainment options at all! Who ever heard of a transatlantic flight that didn't have a movie? Make sure you download the app so you can at least watch the movies on your tiny screen."
Cons: "Salmon sandwich was not fresh- I got ill."
Pros: "Quick flight. Again, attentive and kind crew who made themselves readily available to passengers."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess. We were taken by bus to a new terminal, but the bus was not heated and ended up sitting on the tarmac. They allowed passengers to board from two entries, but without organization. So passengers were found tangled up in the rows, attempting to find their seats."
Pros: "Same as my connector"
Pros: "I slept the whole time"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Pros: "The pilot and the crews were helpful about the transit. Pilot make up a lot of time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, had to run to my next connection flight."
Pros: "Excellent crew, good food & movie selection."
Cons: "The flight from Manchester to Amsterdam has been delayed which led insufficient time for me to transfer to HK"
Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."
Pros: "KLM never disappoints, the cabin crew was extremely kind and helpful!. The food was great, nice leg room in regular economy class, thousands of movies and tv shows...it was great!"
Cons: "Well there was a LOT of turbulence but no one can control the weather and shout out to the pilot for giving us such a smooth landing a rough weather!"
Pros: "Slow service."
Cons: "Better communication!"
Pros: "Reasonable space in economy class seats"
Cons: "Staff hurrying us up 40 minutes before departing and threatening to take our bags out of the plane in case we didn’t board then. I had to leave my coffee and run."
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Cons: "Delays, took my hand luggage into the hold,"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!"
Cons: "Pay attention to passengers."
Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Pros: "I love the food"
Cons: "If only there was a way to be able to lie down and sleep - you would be pioneers in aviation"
Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"
Cons: "Trouble checking in regarding a visa issue?.. no other trouble at the other airports.."
Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."
Cons: "I would have to dream something up."
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."
Pros: "Comfortable and well laid out seat area"
Cons: "Food was a little substandard for business class"
Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"
Pros: "Easy to board and easy flight."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Pros: "Friendly in-flight personell"
Cons: "Approx. 1 hour delay, which was not the airline's fault (construction on runways)"
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."
Pros: "Good information and helpfil boarding."
Cons: "Has to wait in confined area fir nearly 2 hrs before boarding. No restroom or refreshments within that area."
Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"
Pros: "I personally do not appreciate the food on this leg of the journey Food Ams to Dxb is GOOD!!"
Cons: "The snack & “ solid eggs” in breakfast. Fresh fruit was good."
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "Plane was new and good"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "Very old aircraft. Looked extremely run down and many things were broken."
Cons: "Food needs improvement, crew was a bit rude"
Pros: "Price for seat was very good. We left 30 minutes late but arrived early."
Pros: "Warm welcome, on time and comfortable"
Pros: "Nice plane, newer model."
Cons: "The ability to control air flow was available on every other row. We were unlucky to be in an off row and it was very uncomfortable. Fortunately my wife was able to move to the window seat where it was cooler. The athletic team on board made disembarking a bigger challenge than necessary."
Pros: "Ability to quickly board the plane"
Cons: "You had to pay for snacks and drinks on this flight"
Pros: "Timely service and courteous staff."
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Crew were nice enough."
Cons: "Two hour delay before we could take off. We were in the plane all that time. People were tired and hungry. When we finally got going, we had to pay for food and drinks. The service didn't seem very efficient."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and informative"
Cons: "Took too long for my bag to come out. Almost an hour."
Pros: "Nothing was good. It was really bad."
Cons: "1. The bags have been lost. They are located, but not yet delivered. All the kid's stuff, beach, personal things, gifts are still somewhere.. 2. IMHO: in Heathrow the Extra sequrity check point is unreasonable for the travelers from the US to Europe. 3 in the plane the person next to me was constantly coughing , NO MASK, it was flue. When I asked help to change a seat, flight attendant did not help."
Pros: "The short flight easy to sit down"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Cons: "We were not even offered a glass of water."
Pros: "arrived 8 minutes early"
Cons: "Was told at gate ALL bags had to go in hold. Once bags labeled and on bus NO ONE else was labeled. Took labels off boarded; plenty of overhead room. Why lie to us? Also asked insurance pay out limit of lost hold bag just in case. They refused to answer telling me I should buy a lock to lock bag in case it gets lost.What is that going to solve. Don’t go flying with BA if you have anything of any value or fragile."
Pros: "Customer service."
Cons: "Entertainment need more movies"
Cons: "Flight was 45 minutes late. Crew was standoffish, bordering on unpleasant. They want you to pay for a glass of plain water! Definitely not the British Arways I remembered."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, professional and extremely pleasant."
Cons: "I’m not a fan of the constant PA’s during the descent. Playing a video about arrival procedures for an airport is extremely superfluous. Nobody pays attention and you just have to follow the signs when you get there."
Cons: "Rude staff at the airport. Short overlay did not have enough time to get our bags and checkin again that was ridiculous to have to check in again!"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good day in the skies."
Pros: "It was the typical cattle car flight. It was on time and crew were fine"
Pros: "Everything was efficient and on time. The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The extra baggage charges made this not economical."
Cons: "The only refreshment without charge was tap water. The crew also pulled a curtain across the tops of the seats in front of us to separate economy from priority, and it felt somewhat insulting. Boarding was delayed with no communication from the crew as we all stood at the gate waiting for instructions."
Cons: "There was a new born next to me and actually it was difficult to sleep."
Cons: "Flight canceled want able to rebook"
Pros: "Flight was early."
Cons: "Didn’t offer water or anything else. Was selling food/drinks."
Cons: "As a Kenyan Passport Holder living in Canada on a PR status was denied right to travel to Kenya via LHR transit. WHY ? will you help us with our rights what compensation will help to alleviate the pain"
Cons: "no entertainment at all more significantly, no beverages at all? Flight attendants came through once with the beverage cart, but only asked the person at the end of our row if he wanted anything. He asked for juice assumed it would be complimentary but it wasn't. They offered to get him a water. The flight attendants did not offer me or the man next to me anything at all. Everyone knows that air travel is dehydrating - I can't believe BA doesn't give provide complimentary water and juice."
Cons: "Please include a complimentary tea and/or snack."
Cons: "You had to pay for everything and I do mean everything. Even a glass of water. There were no glasses unless you paid for a bottle. If I have a choice I won’t be flying British Airways again."
Pros: "No lines."
Cons: "Impossibly poor online servicing, most unsympathetic, unhelpful and ignorant check-in, sales personnel w manager to match. If you take a hard-line to sympathetic, injured, elite member that s my 91-years-old father. And fail to provide most basic information of local scheduled flights you might just leave oneworld and let up-to-task risen stars add to the alliance (instead of abusing her standing as BA does. Shame on you."
Pros: "seat was comfort, the flight was on time."
Cons: "no free water? it is really a big surprise, how could be, it is not cheap airline."
Cons: "We have to pay for even water or tea or coffee. So we stay thirsty."
Pros: "Flight was well organized and professional Everything worked according to plan Good job BA Please keep your standards -- don't stoop to Easjet or RyanAir"
Cons: "No power plugs on the plane No wifi (not the end of the world but would have been nice)"
Pros: "I didn't partake of food or entertainment on the two hour flight. All was great."
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "No refreshments (not even coffee or tea) on an international flight. I expect that from EasyJet but not BA."
Pros: "Overall flight better London to Beirut l"
Cons: "Long wait over"
Pros: "Very courteous attendants"
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "See my notes on the Chicago London leg."
Cons: "Same as the likes..."
Pros: "Comfortable ride. I wish that'd been my plane to London."
Cons: "Nothing. It was good"
Cons: "Tight seats ,almost missed flight due to second security check at heathrow"
Pros: "Nice aircraft and flight!"
Cons: "We were never offfered a snack! The people in the rows ahead of us got a snack and the people behind us did as well. Last leg of a 3 flight series of about 13 hours (and overnight), so some coffee and a small snack would have been enjoyed."
Pros: "the seats on this plane were more comfortable and the crew was friendly, even though there were some irate customers."
Cons: "We boarded late, sat on the plane for more than 2 hours (it was uncomfortably warm) and were told we then had to switch planes due to a mechanical problem. I understand this happens, but for the inconvenience BA should give some sort of compensation. After the long wait we were starving, but they ran out of all of the food choices. We were scheduled to arrive at 16:30 but ended up arriving after 22:00. this wasted our first night of our vacation in Rome. There was one passenger in particular who was yelling, swearing and causing a scene because of the flight delay. His rude behavior was rewarded with an upgrade to first class. The message this sends to your passsengers is that we should all be loud and obnoxious when problems arise. I was not impressed with my first experience with BA."
Cons: "My luggage didn't make the transfer"
Pros: "The service at the BA help counter was doing the best they can to get me on another flight."
Cons: "The flight could not properly land because there were issues with another plane on the tarmac. Due to the 40min delay in London. I missed the connection flight to Rome and it was disappointing because I arrived in Rome 8 hours later because I had to board a flight to Barcelona and connect there. My luggage was left in Barcelona when I landed in Rome and I did not have my luggage for 2 days. Very disappointing travel day and I hope it doesn't happen to anyone else."
Pros: "Crew looked groomed"
Cons: "No snacks"
Cons: "Same as above. Spent the flight vomiting from previous food poisoning from Kosher meal. Crew did not seem particularly concerned about my welfare. No one offered to help in any way other than hand me a vomit bag."
Pros: "Traveling alone, especially in another country, can be daunting but at least there was no language barrier, almost! The aircraft and personnel were fine as expected. Much as expected in a domestic flight in the US."
Cons: "Having to pay for a drink of water was unexpected. Not having to deal with cash for purchases saves the hassle for attendants, but the credit card machine did not work, there was no alternative machine to try after I was told "we have been having some issues", and as a result I was unable to have anything. The associate seemed unconcerned and unapologetic and simply walked away. Poor response."
Pros: "the friendliness of the crew"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Bad delay, long security line there"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Food was ok. Seat was crowded. Everything else was excellent."
Pros: "Yes, it was comfortable and they r nice."
Cons: "Ummmm delayed both flights were delayed, it was annoying"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and when finally boarded we had to get off the plane for a crew change and wait another hour. Then we sat on the runway for 45 minutes before we took off. Worst flight of my life."
Cons: "Use jet bridge instead of bus gate"
Cons: "Haven't made it there yet still in Lisbon and no way to make it to cruise ship on time."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "The process for getting ready to board was a little chaotic"
Cons: "The early morning fight was delayed, and I appreciated that TAP notified me ahead of time. However, TAP did not communicate that despite the 2 hour delay, we were required to be at the airport checkin as if the flight was never delayed - and agent dismissed us as late. Only begging got us on flight."
Pros: "Really great"
Cons: "Need entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable and the light snack provided terrible. No entertainment at all. The A319 is a horrible airplane: rather uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Lots of hidden fees, horrible customer service, no flight entertainment available, seats were uncomfortable. Definitely would not recommend"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "A modern airplane properly equipped with padded seats and provisioned with quality food. Charging outlets!!"
Pros: "TAP airline didn’t charge me for a checked bag on my flight to Lisbon. On the way back to Rome I was met with blank faces and no options. They demanded the extra $70 for a checked bag. On my way to Rome, a group of students were yelling and crawling all over the seats and blocking the aisle. Worst"
Cons: "Full airline policies up front."
Pros: "TAP serves edible cheese sandwiches. First time in years I eat plane food and don’t immediately regret it."
Cons: "I travel with an international carry-on designed to fit in comoartments above seats in any and all planes (Tumi alpha 2 International), and yet TAP would claim it was too large to fit and forced me to check it. My problem is not only the wait once we land, but most improtsntly that the bags are beat up in the journey. Indeed, my carry-on arrived with several scratches on the plastic edges as well as some signs of worn on the textile. Because of this carry-on baggage size restrictions, I will not fly TAP airlines again (unless I can travel with my hand purse only)."
Pros: "Overhead luggage space"
Cons: "Entertainment pretty bad. Boarding very disorganized, takes way to long, getting on and off. had to show Passport and boarding pass way too many times, inefficient. Seat was more spacious than going, but not much padding for long flight. No air control No safety demos"
Cons: "the ground personnel were not nice. They also did not seem to know what they were doing. Inconsistent communication. No patience with customers."
Cons: "Switched planes both ways, changed my paid for seating. No notifications. Excess luggage charges. Would never recommend this airline."
Cons: "Missed, even on time at Lisbon"
Cons: "why do they sell their tickets when they know they can not make the connection? little time between the two flights compared to the functionality of the airport. never again TAP"
Cons: "When I booked the flight, your site said that I would not have a luggage charge, but I was charged 37 euros more when I checked in."
Pros: "Crew was nice and the plane was comfortable"
Cons: "Flight took off two hours late and we were not given frequent updates as to why the delay was taking longer than announced"
Pros: "Quick... I was happy to be out of there"
Cons: "If you're going to charge for a checked bag on an international flight, it would be nice if you made that clear on the ticket purchase. A tiny link buried in the information section "See baggage information for additional fees that may apply" doesn't make it abundantly clear that you're going to be hit with an $85 charge each way (ultimately $380 for my wife and me round-trip). Sneaky and dishonest!"
Cons: "Tap changed the times on my original flight from Portugal to Rome then changed the times from my first flight from Boston to Portugal making it impossible to connect from Portugal to Rome.both flights were tap airlines. We were charged 462.00 extra to take the next flight out 3hours later. We were charged twice for the same flight from Portugal to Rome. It was not our fault that we could not connect in Portugal, every other airlines would make resonable accommodations with out any extra charge. We both feel cheated by tap airlines and it made our vacation very stressful trying to resolve the double charge. It has not been resolved as of yet and we our very disappointed on how we were treated. can’t get anything other than the blame being passed around."
Pros: "The airplane crew was very professional. The entertainment was very good."
Cons: "Space and mobility was very limited."
Pros: "Everything was great. No complaints, just an acknowledgement abt layovers and the time needed. Had an hour an a half layover but by the time you get on line to go thru customs n security again we were definitely cutting it close but that's TSA not the airline but the airline could have maybe added another maybe 20-25 mins to the layover. We felt like world travellers running for our connecting flight tho and we loved it! Lol!"
Pros: "I was very comfortable with empty seats in my row."
Cons: "No entertainment facilities."
Cons: "Ground personnel one crew member in particular was unfriendly uncaring and unwilling to find a responsible resolution for the problem"
Pros: "Free food and drinks. Pillow and blanket and ear buds all ready on each seat! More spacious seating."
Cons: "No indication booking was discounted flight on kayak website! Charges for baggage very , very high!. Very bad border crossing as we waited in line for a simple passport stamp for 3 hours!!!!!!"
Pros: "Good food serving times."
Cons: "The hospitality of the airline crew is very poor as they are extremely rude to their customers. The planes I flew on were very out of date and not comfortable for international travel. I have flown on many airlines, but these planes were by far the worst. Cheap price, for a reason. The seats didn’t recline, the food was terrible, no options were given for food, and the movies were pre-picked. No one had a choice in what they watched. Very outdated. I had 2.5 hours to board my connecting flight and they caused me to miss it. As I waited in the customs line entering Lisbon, I asked a TAP representative if I’d have to get out of the line up and go right through as my flight left at 2:10 pm. They said you will make it, stay in line. I get near the front of the line 2 hours later... hundreds of people were in this line and they only had 2/10 customs agents available!!! I ask another representative how far my gate is since my flight leaves in 30 min and she told me “no you missed it. but don’t worry others will be missing it too”. So no I did not miss it, you caused me to miss it cause I already asked if I would and you people told me no. I run to the gate, which has now changed to the other end of the airport, so I run to that gate and it is 10 min before the flight is to take off. I ask the desk agent at the gate and he tells me the flight has already left. Others had missed it too due to the insane customs line up. So the plane left 20 mins earlier than scheduled with only half it’s passengers..... unbelievable!!! When I went to the service desk they did not show any sympathy or apologetic behaviours whatsoever."
Pros: "Always the good attention."
Cons: "The delay of the flight without announcing it"
Pros: "Very good staff"
Cons: "They ran out of my food choice after the 2nd row of business business class. Their video is 20 years out of date, and for business class a disgrace"
Pros: "Anything I liked feels inconsequential compared to the bad."
Cons: "My wife and I arrived to the airport for our honeymoon extremely excited. We had been saving for our trip to Italy for months, and we were finally going to get things started. Everything fell apart when we went to check in and we were told that my wife couldn’t use her ticket because she had changed her last name. We were told that there was no way that the name on the ticket could be changed because of TSA regulations. Of course, we were also told that we could have changed the name had we purchased a more expensive ticket. In other words, we were lied to and told the issue was regulation, when really they wouldn’t help us because we couldn’t afford a more expensive ticket. The only help we were given was the pleasure of paying over $1,500 more to get my wife on the flight. I am in the process of trying to get this refunded, but as of now we have paid twice for my wife to fly, and neither ticket has been refunded. We may have accidentally broken a rule, but the only function that rule seems to have is to make us pay twice for the same seat. As of now, I would never fly this airline again, and I would warn everyone away from it. I will update this post if TAP does the right thing by two honeymooners."
Cons: "Theo lost my luggage the plane was full of dust"
Pros: "The check in was smooth and boarding was quick"
Cons: "We had problems with TAP up front related to baggage fares and them keeping the $85 I paid for my son who is 2 meters tall to be in an exit row and then assigned to a different seat. He was miserable for almost seven hours."
Cons: "As I keep metioning....you guys need to be more generous with the Victoria program. I fly you guys a minimum of 7 or 8 times a year, plus numerous partner flights, and what do I get? no free upgrades, 60,000 miles to become gold etc etc"
Pros: "The crew were kind and considerate."
Cons: "This was the worst flight I've ever experienced. There was an incessant, loud high-pitched buzzing noise for the entire duration of the flight (we were seated in the very back row so it was particularly loud for us, but others further up said it was bad for them too). Also, we had straight turbulence for over two hours. I've never gotten sick on a plane before, and my husband never gets motion sickness, but we both threw up (and I think several others did, too). I don't blame the crew for any of this, as I know most, if not all, of it was out of their control. However, I would be very nervous to flight TAP again due to this experience."
Pros: "People were very nice that worked on the flight. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Seats were hard as a rock"
Pros: "Honestly I didn't like anything because before I boarded , I was charged for all my luggage . They said that tap changed there policy , how I suppose to know ? Why didn't it say anything while purchasing a ticket"
Cons: "I was charged for my 3 luggage . It's not fair . I still have the invoice , before ibbook the ticket it said that you get free luggage ."
Pros: "New plane. Seats ok"
Cons: "Very long wait for boarding. Overcrowding of bus. Food insufficient and mediocre though business class"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable in economy although no one is ever happy with how little they recline, crew was friendly and helpful. Entertainment selection was larger than most airlines I've flown on."
Cons: "Flight left Toronto at midnight, the crew served a meal and it was about 2 hours after departure that the cabin lights were finally turned off. On an overnight, overseas flight, turn off the lights and service breakfast with a noon arrival like all the flights I've taken to London do."
Cons: "Bad system to board"
Pros: "Smooth and organized boarding process. Layover is a great option to explore lisbon."
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was just crappy all the way. New airplane...seats d ont recline."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Everything else was excellent."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on this flight"
Pros: "The trip was perfect. My bag does not think the same way."
Cons: "Everything was perfect until I receive my bag and notice that two (2) items were missing: my snorkeling face mask, and my camera's tripod. Who is responsible for this? How can I be happy with this?"
Cons: "First flight was delayed by just a half an hour and we arrived in Portugal. We had a connecting flight to AMS with also TAP and had a two hour window to make the next flight with the same company (TAP). We were in line for passport and then security and talked to several TAP employees and they said we would be have time and wouldn't have a problem catching the second flight. Well, we got through the lines with 30 min before our next flight and they wouldn't let us on. Customer service and organization of the airline is really poor. The aircraft had minimal room and no entertainment. We got on our next flight five hours later and all they gave us was a $10 food voucher. So poorly managed."
Cons: "easy flight,"
Pros: "Overall flight was great and crew very polite"
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about it!"
Cons: "I was so dissatisfied with the customer service and lack of help provided after a FULL and LARGE flight was cancelled to Lisbon (then ultimately to Rome for me). I would like a FULL refund for my flight plus my miles accredited to my account for the full trip to Rome."
