Pros: "Customer service excellent even though I was in the economic class they made me feel first class!"
Cons: "They lost our bags for the second time in 4 days. Both originating flights were late starting and made for impossible connections! Is Swiss ever on time? Frustrating for sure!"
Cons: "I flew to Berlin last minute for a 4 day business trip. Was asked to check my carry on and I haven't seen it since. Waited for over 2 hours in the baggage service line at the Berlin airport, filled out a form and haven't heard anything since."
Cons: "Too hot on plane, despite several requests to turn up air conditioning. Would be nice if pilot gave a few more updates as to why we sat on the tamac so long."
Cons: "They put us in different seats. My 7 year old and 3year old were all sitting separately and we could not switch with anyone. The air hostesses were not as helpful as other airlines."
Pros: "Everything was good. From the service to the food."
Pros: "Easy, quiet boarding and flight, USB port available, audio and sound were working, nice movie selection. Friendly and helpful crew, assisted with cough crisis"
Cons: "Seats from JFK to Zurich were a little bit squeezed."
Cons: "The boarding process is very uncomfortable as the passengers are asked to board the plane without any specific order, regardless of where they’re sitting, instead of boarding them by groups."
Pros: "Flight was fine! Snack and beverages were good. However, when you buy the ticket for the international flight, what they don’t tell you is the extra €40- FORTY EURO you will spend to check a not big bag. For this reason I would fly with another airline next time."
Cons: "Extra fees for checked bags"
Cons: "My entertainment unit was not working the whole flight."
Pros: "Quiet, staff do not bother you. Seats are big enough to rest."
Cons: "Boarding and sitting takes a bit of time."
Pros: "Tons of movies, excellent food, clean planes, friendly crew. Flying was a pleasure."
Cons: "Checking in is very inefficient at JFK. There was only one (super slow) teller checking all of economy, while three people checked in business class. There were no automated check-in kiosks. you can imagine the chaos. Unfriendly tellers too. On the way back I was selected for a strip search when I checked in at the gate. So was my husband, but he wasn't told of this until he Was boarding and his ticket beeped on scanning. There was no room for our carry on, because we boarded so late. Annoying."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Engine shut down juast as the safety briefing started but all was good when it started again. A light meal would have been better than yoghurt & biscuits. Staff were very helpful."
Pros: "Service was remarkable - food far superior! Will be my airline of choice going overseas."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive, kind and professional on their ways through the cabin. I appreciated the hot towels near the end of the flight."
Cons: "There were headphones (as well as pillows and blankets, much appreciated), but the jacks for the headphones only fit the SwissAir headphones, so if passengers brought their own headphones, they could only get a mono output. It was difficult to hear the entertainment through only one ear."
Pros: "Crew and people were fantastic!"
Cons: "LONG lines again. No luggage even with a 4 hour layover"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "My wife is strictly Hindu vegetarian. We had entered her food choice at Swiss web site months before. She didn't get the food while going to Zurich and coming back to Boston. She remained hungry both ways. Although we were in business class while coming."
Pros: "The Israeli crew on El Al were very polite and tried to help."
Cons: "When we arrived to Swiss desk, after checking in at home including choosing seats, we were sent to El Al desk and had to start everything from the start. We couldn't even choose seats . It was a great disappointment. We don't think we fly in Swiss again"
Pros: "I liked the service, the food, the entertainement, the super kind personel, would only fly with them :) Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Crew; polite helpful and professional."
Cons: "Seating, and the pre booking process. The cost of endless add for a decent flight. Ex. buy a ticket but you didnt buy a seat, luggage, meals, wifi,"
Pros: "The crew really went out of their way to accomodate and made sure I found my seat, was entertained and was comfortable throughout my flight."
Cons: "It was delayed a little."
Cons: "SWISS always turns on the air conditioning too high on intercontinental flights. It is HOT inside the cabins. The entertainment system is very outdated, small screen and old and used hand set. Claiming to be a premium airline is unfortunately very overstated if you are unlucky to catch the old business class planes. Only few have changed to the new versions (777s) - Make sure to catch those."
Pros: "Service ok"
Cons: "Horrible food, tvs didn't work, crowded."
Cons: "Food: not so good! Entertainment: in the section of the new releases movies was old not new:) And my bag didn't come on the and :("
Pros: "What I liked is that they didn't really focus on the weight I had little more weight and they didn't really make an issue for me"
Cons: "Geneva airport is so busy on the weekend I had to stay in the line for 20 minutes it's a little annoying"
Cons: "I did not get a check in reminder email which I thought was strange. I tried checking in and received an error message. I contacted customer service by email and was told I was all checked in. Assuming no issues I went to airport to find out it was canceled. I did not receive an explanation. I waited in line for two hours before speaking to a representative. Was made to feel like it was my fault I hadn't worked things out while waiting in line-"didn't you receive an email!?" I was told no other options except to leave the next day. I pulled up many other flights out of Venice that would get me home in time and was told that there simply were no other options. The real explanation was that Swiss didn't want to pay out to get me home in time. I had to pay more money to get back into the city rather than sit in airport for 12 hours."
Pros: "The best in flight service. I've taken Swiss air multiple times from Zurich to LA and I will never take another airline. The food is great, plenty of snacks and drinks. Great entertainment and the cabin crew treats you very well."
Cons: "I missed a collecting flight due to weather and the airline refused to rebook my flight."
Cons: "Delay and lost the luggage for the second time"
Cons: "Late departure and arrival. No leg room in seats. Entire airline uses the cattle car approach. Would not fly with them again or recommend them to friends."
Cons: "I paid for a seat on the aisle with extra leg room. Seat 24D. There was only minimal foot space because of some type of metal box under seat 23D. I don't think that I should had to pay $45 for the extra leg room just to receive cramped foot space."
Pros: "I have been flying to Greece and back many years now. I have never seen,such comfort in a plane,such great service,so many snacks and meals,and the crew was coming by every 30-45 minutes for water. We were served Swiss chocolate and also the best ice cream I have had in my life. Best flight and best plane I have flown in my life."
Cons: "At the check-in gate there was pandemonium. It was not clear how to proceed. The lines were long and disorderly. Since I had passed through passport control, I didn't think I would need to go through again just before boarding. I was in line, ready to have my boarding pass scanned when I was told I needed to have my passport checked! I had to step out of line, go back and get my passport checked, then go back in line to board! I could not get an assigned seat until I got to Zurich. I needed an aisle seat (I had a bladder infection and would need to use the toilet often). It was left up to me to negotiate with my neighbor to switch seats--- the crew would not help at all. I was cramped in my seat. The man in front of me put his chair too far back; I was difficult to work on my laptop with so little room between me and the table. The snack was horrible---uncooked, tasteless calzone and ice cream."
Pros: "Food was adequate for economy. Free drinks on trans-Atlantic flights are a nice perk. Cabin crew is friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to incoming aircraft. It was probably not the airline's fault. Berlin Tegel gate area is too small for international flight - not enough seats and nowhere else to wait after security."
Pros: "- Lots of snacks selections during the flight - Great selection of Movies - but unable to watch them"
Cons: "- No special treatment for Star Alliance Gold Member - Crew member forgotten my drink order completely - Entertainment system was not working after 7 Restart attempts - The whole entertainment system is very 90's - OLD and ready to retire - There were crumbs or foods left over from previous flights on my seat and tomato sauce on the tray table - Foods selections was not that great"
Pros: "Spacious and good food"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, attentive staff"
Cons: "plane was delayed"
Pros: "Food was overall not bad. It would have been nice to have more snack options if I was hungry in between meals."
Cons: "Landed early but there was no gate so we just sat on the runway. We also sat on the runway long past when we were supposed to arrive. I'm not sure why there still was no gate when we passed the time that we were supposed to arrive. There were also no power outlets in the plane. For such a long flight, it would be great to have power outlets to charge devices while flying. Flight was also kept very cold. Not very good entertainment options."
Pros: "good entertainment and many options on the tv"
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "I was offered several snacks throughout the flight, which helped to pass the time and gave me the opportunity to drink water, which helps a lot."

Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."

Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
