Cons: "The seats were very small, the cusion was worn, the entertainment screen did not work, nor did my recline function on seat."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "The flight itself was pleasant. But a 3 hour delay, because of technical issues on the incoming flight from Geneva? Why didn’t they send another aircraft?"
Pros: "Crew very courteous as usual"
Cons: "Lately all Swiss flights I have taken are late. This last one was 1 hour late. No more sandwich is offered, or even chips or peanuts. The only drink available for free was a glass of water! Not even a small bottle!! Bye bye Swiss service!"
Pros: "Ricaro seats often broken and backs don’t stay in the upright position."
Cons: "Food is terrible. The hot pocket meal served at the end of the westbound flight is even more than terrible. The (single) Oreo cookie served for dessert on the eastbound flight is rather disappointing and truely less than one would expect or hope for from a Swiss airline!"
Pros: "Good seats for my wife and i: window and aisle seat"
Cons: "Only glass of water free...coffee is 3.50"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: ""Swiss" and punctuality are not anymore going together"

Pros: "Good food for economy , good selection of new releases movies included , small seat and leg room but not terrible"
Cons: "Made us check our carry on bag because it was too heavy and was told to get it from baggage claim on our connecting flight for it to never show up then waited in line for missing luggage for them to tell us they transferred it and would be waiting at the final destination"
Pros: "Seats a bit tight"
Pros: "Clear, relatively comfortable plane. Free ski bag."
Cons: "Again, incredibly unhelpful re: my unusual situation. Flight attendants rigid and unkind to the woman next to me with a dog in a case. Almost like automatons. But that's typically Swiss, which I appreciate but they could definitely humanize a bit more!"
Cons: "Checked in online. Needed to drop my snowboard bag off. I had 2 hrs...got in the express line to drop bags with ticket. They kept taking people from every other line in front of us. Took 1 hr to drop a bag. Got through security line and told my boarding pass is no good. 30 min before flight. Back to Swiss. Have a meltdown and finally they help. Now I’m in Geneva and my bags in Zurich..."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and helpful. They were all multi-lingual and ready to help foreign travelers. The food was good. The plain wasn’t overstuffed with people - actually there were enough open seats that everyone could have a little extra space. Will always check Swiss Air first for international travel."

Pros: "New aircraft"
Cons: "Lost luggage. Flight delayed."
Pros: "Service was excelent puntualiti was excelente thank you very much"
Pros: "The Crew is amazing and the plane is comfortable."

Pros: "It was nice because plane was half empty so had quicker attention from stewards - everything was good."
Cons: "See comment above. Zurich airport transfer desk was not staffed by Swiss air staff. Made resolution of missed flight more difficult. Also was not informed till I checked in at San Francisco that my bag would probably not arrive at the time I arrived in Geneva."

Cons: "Dirty bathroom, late take off/late arrival, non-gluten free or healthy options for food"
Pros: "On time, even arrival 20 min earlier, very courteous and professional cabin crew comparing to the rudeness of Lufthansa one. Soft landing."
Cons: "At LHR terminal 2, same gate A, B, for 2 different flights which lead to confuse many passengers. Better signing and Public Announcement is needed. Queuing 1:30h for tax refund is totally unacceptable and leads to give up to claim your rights."
Cons: "If you put the seats this close together, with the amount of recline. Once one person on the fligh reclines their seat it forces everyone else to do so. You can't eat if the person in front of you reclines!"
Cons: "I arrived to the airport within an hour of boarding time. I wasn't told the gate to my plane until 8:30. When I arrived to the gate there were no employees to speak to and it stated boarding time was 8:35 we didn't board until 9! It was just scary and confusing for someone flying alone in another country. When all the other confused flyers asked simple questions the employees at the gate were annoyed and rude."
Pros: "that they had new movies"
Cons: "the leg space is non existent, few of the seat dont even recline meanwhile some recline more than normal"
Cons: "Terrible service. Crew was unfriendly and unhelpful. There seems to be an element of arrogance when flying with this airlines."

Pros: "We were able to purchase an upgrade at the airport -- was a great experience."
Cons: "Delayed boarding due to overheated plane, when we did board it was still warm and we had to sit longer due to other mechanical issues. Wish they would have waited for all issues to be resolved before boarding."
Cons: "Made me check in my carry on bag and changed my reserved window seat to middle seat amidst 2 children I don't know. Whe I got on the plane there was plenty of room for my carry on despite the boarding staff saying there wasn't. I offered to upgrade my ticket to business class the attendant at the desk laughed at me. Older woman was very rude, condescending and not accommodating."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this flight"
Cons: "My flight has been cancelled with no ecplonation. They reissue e ticket for me under different name. The crew were very rude . My suitcase was lost and still I have not received it . They promised to deliver ."

Cons: "Carry-on allowances continue to be significantly less than other comparable airlines- was only allowed one piece"

The restaurant in the business lounge should work 24/7
Pros: "Crew was excellent, seats were comfy."
Pros: "Very comfortable overall"
Cons: "Unrelated to the flight, the ground handling staff at Istanbul airport, especially the information desk, should be given a crash course in customer care."
Cons: "The stewardess not very nice"
Pros: "Good food for economy and crew was really nice . Great movie selection , nice amenity kit for economy."
Cons: "They weigh your carry on making you shift things . 31 inch pitch is tight for a long flight. Didn’t give 5 stars to the entertainment because although excellent selection , the touch screen is very slow to react making it frustrating."
Pros: "The food on the airline is good. Entertainment system has many movies to watch. The boarding system from Istanbul is a Nightmare!"
Cons: "Once I asked the air hostess for a sandwich, i was really hungry, she said she would have to walk to back of plane and they would be serving food in 15 minutes. After 45 minutes I went back to ask for a sandwich and handed me a tray of meal and said to eat this."
Cons: "seat cannot recline"
Pros: "Everything was good apart from food"
Cons: "The low calories special meal was inedible. The protein was so overcooked."
Pros: "Fare good. Food good. Staff generally pleasant but will not go the extra step to when needed."
Cons: "Repeatedly announce overhead during rest time. Asked for help from crew when one of the kids threw up, but they did help. Otherwise, generally good airline"
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "The same food every time and its not high quality - even in Business class. The business class seats are uncomfortable, they don't recline far enough or provide adequate leg and foot support. The breakfast is not good at all and they seem to fry or provide stale croissants and danishes - they are always so hard and difficult to eat. the flight is always delayed and boarding chaotic."
Pros: "Rapidly becoming my airline of choice. Great service, comfortable and on time. Relatively new fleet and not cramped. Puts other national carriers (including BA) to shame"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, on time and good service"
Pros: "Elite member flying with my wife, no preference boarding for Elite. Were assigned to different group letter No good answers Dissapointed"
Cons: "The crew blocks economy passengers from moving forward until all of first class has left. No other airline does this and its really annoying"

Cons: "Management of time excellent. Plane went on time. Staff on checking in or in the plane were polite, pleasant, professional and available. Timing of delivery of luggage also was fast."
Pros: "Boarding process started early and was efficient. Short flight so not much to say."
Cons: "We seemed to arrive late even though the boarding started early. Last call was displayed on the monitors 40 min before the flight took off which seemed excessive to me. And in spite of this we still didn’t arrive on time."
Cons: "I requested a wheelchair at the airports but didn't receive that service."
Cons: "My flight tonight (0078) from MIA to Istanbul was delayed by over 5 hours. I am traveling with an infant and it has been IMPOSSIBLE to get anyone to help us. Finally, someone at the airport helped in re-booking our flights but I have yet to have anyone give me an answer regarding compensation! In addition, we are traveling with an infant which isn't easy but we had the bassinet seat on our original flight. Now it's sold out for the flight tomorrow and no one will assist in trying to help get us better seats. I understand things are out of your companies control but being in an airport with an 18-month baby isn't easy and no one in this company has made this crazy travel schedule easier. I would like someone to call me back or email me with something that could maybe be done to help us! No one at the call center will help!"
Pros: "The for was good. The crew was attentive and professional."
Cons: "The leg room in the Washington-Istanbul leg was very small for a long haul international flight."

Pros: "Fantastic food and service"
Pros: "Not only was the aircraft antique and sporting old seats, but the crew also upgraded two families with infants to the business class where the screamed their hearts out to the obvious displeasure of the paying customers. A true Turkish delight... Unlikely to fly them again."
Cons: "Good food and alcohol selection"
Pros: "Great entertainment system and tasty food!"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. The disorganization and misinformation was unprecedented. I have been traveling for 30 years and tried almost all airlines, but the Turkish Airline office at Cairo Airport ranked the poorest I have ever seen. The disorganization was as if they do not know what to do. First they said the plane arrived late, then they said there was a bird hitting the engine. The excuses were so laughable beyond belief."
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Cons: "after plane landed, we stayed one (1) hour on the run way till the plane could find a gate to pull into. After as 14 hour flights, this was the icing on the cake!!!"
Pros: "Food and pleasant service."
Pros: "Istanbul airport with shops and new food court area is excellent"
Cons: "Newer fleet. Good service and entertainment system."
Pros: "I had a ticket for the 7th and there was no flight on the 7th. I ultimately flew to JFK instead of IAD causing a lot of problems for me and my family that was to pick me up. Not sure I will fly Turkish Airlines again"
Pros: "we arrived on time, as scheduled."
Cons: "I missed my flight and the customer service was so poor that I even missed the last flight of the day, and spent money for the hotel. They wouldn't issue me a hotel voucher."

Pros: "Excellent service, food and entertainment."
Cons: "The boarding was long and via buses!"
Pros: "Again, everything was great! The kosher food from La Casa was outstanding and your stewards are polite, helpful, hard-working and professional. You have a wonderful airline! R. Lerner"
Pros: "Wonderful experience"
Cons: "This aircraft also wasn't peoperly cleaned. Another seat pocket filled with garbage and a stale smell of vomit."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Flight had only 10 minute delay and only an hour layover. Boarding was pleasent"
Cons: "As expected food wasn't that good, the crew was a little slow, and seemed like didn't care that much about passengers individual needs."
Pros: "Food is phenomenal . Seat are so much more comfortable then delta, and I fly a lot overseas , where flights are 8h minimum , so it is a very important factor. Flight departed and arrived exacted at time schedule, and of course not to mention that the prices are good for their flights"
Cons: "The only thing I would say that it could be improved is that they leave you food tray on your laps for a lot longer that needed."
Pros: "Better headphones for economy Pillows on seat when boarding"
Cons: "heating controls /cooling tem not very good,"
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "there was no entertainment no pillows no blanket inside of the plane was kind of cold and the flight attendants were quite indifferent to your needs I couldnt lower the number of stars but I give it 1 star all around!!"
Pros: "Turkish Air flight from Istanbul to NYC was fine but Turkish Air flight leaving Tashkent 8:15 am to Istanbul, May 29, was terrible. Although we had all been up from 5am to get to early morning flight and Tashkent air port has no services, stewardess ran out of coffee and repeatedly refused to get me, the person skipped, coffee, despite repeated requests for a first cup. Each time they refilled coffee, they started run from beginning of plane, and ran out by the time they got to the middle. Usually if someone gets skipped, they just go back and get a single cup, but this lady was determined not to. Never had this happen in 55 years of flying. Serious caffine deficiency."
Pros: "The service, the food, everything."
Pros: "Almost everything. Food ..."
Cons: "Was great overall."
Pros: "Excellent food and services, both ground staff and cabin crew."
Cons: "Seat pitch is very short on the Airbus A330 for an average person’s height allowing for very limited body movability making it extremely uncomfortably especially on long flight durations."
Pros: "Food and crew were excellent, but one of the seats we were in had a fuzzy connection for the audio of the entertainment system."
Cons: "One of the seats we were in had a fuzzy connection for the audio of the entertainment system. There was a 2+ hr delay in an area with no food or restrooms, and the airline did not give any details or statuses, just kept delaying 30 minutes at a time."
Cons: "he delay and not knowing much about what the cause was. Having to keep awake in early dawn and have a flight delay can destroy the start of a long awatited vacation."
Everything went awesome! Thanks.
Pros: "Economy light is not a good choice but that is not what was special. Everything worked together very well, beginning with timeliness, but crew and service outstanding."
Cons: "See above. I will only buy further tickets directly from airline"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable. Looked new."

Pros: "Plane was awesome and comfortable"
Cons: "Delayed without updates for hours"

Cons: "Connecting flight time was half hour and at other side if airport- not fun at all. Barely made flight home"
Cons: "On the way out Lufthansa charged us a total of £129 to take our bags with us (all under 23KG). On the way back with the same 3 identical bags Lufthansa charged us $399.47 (£306.92), again all under 23KG. How can it be fair to charge passengers 2.4 times more to return home with their bags?"
Cons: "Poor customer support and no response on phone calls when u tried to cancel my return ticket."
Pros: "This was my first experience flying with Lufthansa airlines and the experience was outstanding from start to finish! This is what flying should be like! Other airlines should do what they do!"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. Plane was newer (and cleaner)."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class."
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "I brought my wedding dress with me and on both flights, the flight attendents were so attentive to that and hung in it the cabin crew closet. It was that extra step of care that I am grateful for!"

Pros: "Food was great; I appreciate the frequent water/juice service."
Cons: "The flight did not take off from Dusseldorf until AFTER we were scheduled to arrive in Frankfurt. There were no updates from the flight crew on the delay or on our connecting flight."
Cons: "No seat assigned at check-in or even as they begin boarding. I thought I was flying Lufthansa. Air Canada gate agents were condescending. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Flight was on time, food good. Even the movie selection was great, but ... (see what I didn't like)"
Cons: "Entertainment (sound) in seat 14K didn't work, despite 1 reboot. Please fix."
Cons: "Unfortunately the flight was delayed for 6 hours so we had hard time at Boryspil to book another flights to Los Angeles. After talking to 4 different people at cashier booths for an hour, we finely got tickets with Austrian lines to our destination city. I wish that Borispol Airport team could be more prepared(provide more customer service personal) to solve the problems such as a flight delay in order to serve better the passengers in stressful situations."
Cons: "The food was terrible. I couldn't eat it, and I can eat almost anything. Sorry! Everything else was good. The staff were amazing. I will fly with Lufthansa again. Thank you."
Pros: "Was not allowed on flight"
Cons: "When I missed the connection from the first leg of my flight and purchased the ticket from that leg to finish my itinerary, Lufthansa cancelled ALL of my return tickets. Both Lufthansa and my travel agency pointed the finger at the other and I had to purchase another $1000 ticket to get home. There was no cancellation emails or any notification. I didn’t know my tixkets were cancelled until I was trying to check in. Worst experience ever!!"
Pros: "Smooth boarding."
Cons: "Plane packed to the hilt. Tough to find space for cabin luggage."
Pros: "La atención del personal y el sistema de entretenimiento."
Cons: "La comida, no tenía buen sabor. El avión es poco cómodo (Airbus A340, clase económica)."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly as always."
Cons: "I didn't like having to wait on the plane for 5 hours while the plane was being worked on while still on ground at Denver International airport. I really didn't like that once arriving in Frankfurt International airport and missing my connecting flight I was provided a voucher for food that was worth 10 euros which wasn't enough to get a meal only a snack. I read an article on the plane on how well Lufthansa Airlines is doing and how much money they made but yet they have been giving the same amount on vouchers for a very long time."
Pros: "Flight staff were kind and friendly"
Cons: "I could not push my seat back and the man in front of me pushed his back leaving me very little room"
Cons: "The flight kept cancelling then company offers indirect flight temptations new flight I had to take 6 hour train I hope Lufthansa compensaye"
Pros: "Great price, great airlines, easy flight....I few LAX to Geneva."
Pros: "Exceptionally clean gate area and aircraft. Professional and friendly gate crew as well as flight crew. Well treated as a passenger. Genuine."
Cons: "Nothing noted..."
Pros: "At least Lufthansa has a little bit more leg room."
Cons: "Late one hour. Apparently equipment failure"
Pros: "My flight from Budapest took off hour later then scheduled. We landed in Munich only ten minutes before the international flight's take off to San Francisco. Upon the Munich landing, eight of us were escorted on a special bus, with a special pass controll and on special routs to make sure we get on the plane on time. Our laggage managed to get on the same plane as well. Thank you Lufthansa!"
Pros: "I Luz Myriam will give to Lufthansa 10 qualification!!! in Overall, Boarding, Crew, Food , Entertainment, but 8 about Confort"
Cons: "Just the air conditions was too cold I asked the attendant if can warm my place a little, but she told me the other passenger are warm, she doesn't take care about me, NOT COOL!!"
Pros: "Fast-track security, Lufthansa lounge in Heathrow T2 was fabulous, with incredibly attentive staff, flight stewards were extremely polite and also attentive. Great in flight snack and drinks. A real pleasure."
Cons: "The long walk at Frankfurt - but you can't blame the airline for the place the plane docks at."
Pros: "Very friendly staff and good was good."
Cons: "Had to wait 35 minutes on the plane due to weather before taking off and there wasn't much care on how that would impact everyone's connecting flights."
Cons: "They charged 40 Euro for baggage. On the charge again? Why this was not on any agreement International flights one baggage suppose to be free"
Cons: "Crew members were awful and rude and unhelpful. I landed in Munich and had to run to my next flight and when I asked a Lufthansa staff for help in making my connecting flight he turned to me and said "I don't care-this isn't my problem" upon finally making it for last boarding call to my next flight the staff were rude and unhelpful-I was so stressed I literally had a stomachache and felt completely unwelcome."
Pros: "On board crew was nice."
Cons: "All flights for this trip were 30min-2 hours delayed. At split, we started "boarding" only to be walked outside in the hot sun and grouped together in a tight group to wait again. The split airport crew was awful. The flight crew was fine."
Pros: "Great food! Attentive staff, comfy seats."
Pros: "Service was good, got to change my seat last minute to sit next to my husband."
Cons: "No entertainment for the kids, changed the gate 2hrs before departing from A60 to A1 - not fun with 2 kids had to walk across the airport."
Cons: "To change the gates takes about 45 minutes."
Cons: "This was the coldest flight I ever flew- the temperature was probably in the 50s. For 9 hours when even 3 blankets were not enough to keep us to a decent temperature. Also the crew was very cold and dismissive. They were very aggressive towards two other passengers."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly or very helpful, nothing stood out. As this was the first leg of my international flight, it would have been much better I had proper food, rather than a bag of 6 pretzels, especially since I had to be at the airport three hours earlier, and I had a six hour layover in Newark."
Cons: "It was a problem with one passenger, she came from another row and take two seats close to me and my daughter, she wanted to fly with comfort, so I told her it is not nice, this is not her seats and I have a kid with me and she should share wirh another people too, butshe was freeked out because I did a comment, than she asked me what country I'm from and I told: Russia. So she told me she could see why I so unclever...all Russian the same and laughing on me. I didn't expect so racist behavior and I stopped any conversation and complained to flight attendant. And I was double surprise! She went to her talked with her and than tell me that she could take any place she wants and she never told me any racist words, and maybe I'm a lier. I was so upset and I told a passenger that I can go to court when get back to US, she was really scared now and start sorry! But it was to late to sorry! When I asked flight attendant to sorry, she told she do not sorry!!! The flight was Monday October 3rd 2016 Lufthansa 459 San Francisco -Munich, name of flight attendant Eva-Katherine Pfaffel, the passenger seat 44 Diana or E I think, they didn't provide me information about name or her seat. The flight attendant told me it is not big dealing, maybe for Germany it is ok, but in US it is really rude, original I'm from Russia, my daughter too, additionally she is black, it will be really good if I never feel this again, I was in really helpless situation. It is really unpleasant when you spend money and get neglect."
Pros: "Everybody in bilbao was very helpful as I had a problem with the boarding pass that they solved, very thank full for the service"
Pros: "Direct flight, separate spacious toilets, decent food"
Cons: "It's a good flight overall"
From using an app that denied my negative covid test THREE times because they misread it and tried to mislead me about it ("Maybe the date isn't specified?" when it very much was and I'd drawn attention to its correct location); to the fact that my connecting flight wasn't even available in this app was supposed to determined whether I could fly to my final destination; ti the fact that a supposedly vital piece of documentation wasn't even mentioned in that app; to the unnecessary delaying of a connecting flight by several hours that was suddenly on time again upon landing minutes only late, which somehow required all passengers with ANY connecting flight to run to their gate regardless of destination; to the fact that the boarding passes didn't include my initial return flight and only the connecting, which was cause to be denied entry to the airport, to the apparenly unknown and much disputed location of the check-in where I would have to report to get said boarding pass; to the ONE HOUR WAIT behind maybe 20 people total in spite of having no bags to check because again, I had no boarding pass; to the app incorrectly stating that no additional covid test was needed only to find out after having been at the airport THREE HOURS; to the fact that my itinerary"couldn't" be changed because it was "in flight" while the "fare difference" I would be charged went up $100 every hour I was forced to wait because there were magically no notes regardingmy flight every time I called back as directed; this was a miserable experience all around. Never recommending aer lingus to anyone ever and certainly won't fly it again. Guess I won't ever find my long lost relatives...
Cons: "Food & Beverage service almost nonexistent. Anything beyond water is almost $7.00."
Pros: "Had a fantastic flight and the crew was nice."
Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary but I am not going to fly Air Lingus or TAP ever again."
Cons: "the Team Leader at the check in counter was nasty, Her colleague made the mistake of not telling me that I had to wait there for the wheelchair that was going to take me to the plane, so I went to have a light breakfast. Then I waited half an hour on my feet waiting for the wheelchair"
Pros: "Front and rear boarding is nice, makes the process go a little bit faster"
Cons: "Seems stingy not to offer any free drinks on a flight, not even water. I'm glad the major US airlines have not started doing that. Checked bag fees are based on weight which is fair in a way, but annoying that I have to pack a travel scale and weigh it the night before to avoid being overcharged."
Pros: "The seat was broken, The temperature was freezing and despite asking 3 staff members nothing happened to sort out the situation."
Cons: "several thinkd as above"
Pros: "Crews were rude without caring, it was a significantly delayed flight so that is just terrible experience"
Cons: "Please provide good service, we don't pay to get bad service"
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence which the crew could not do much about. Apart from that a good experience"
Pros: "Pleasant cabin crew"
Cons: "Disembark down steps at back of plane onto tarmac then carry bags up two flights of steps, tiring and dangerous of falling"
Pros: "Good friendly service. Nice aircraft. On time departure. I would travel with Aer Lingus again."
Cons: "Food was not good as compared to other airlines. In my case, there were no outlets to plug in a laptop cable so that I could continue to work."
Pros: "The flights themselves were nice. Food was fine. Flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "Getting to our connection was awful. Prescreening getting into the US was terrible. Got selected for special screening and the officers said the gate knew we were held up there. Only had one hour to reach connection. Lost an immense amount of time getting swabbed and patted down. The gate was closed when we arrived. Had to run to the gate. By accident we found out the gate was closed from someone who happened to hear word that we were looking for the gate to JFK. Almost didn’t get on the flight. If we didn’t run who knows if we would have made it. If you are only giving people an hour to get to their connection, then don’t let them get held up for 40 minutes. It’s idiotic."
Cons: "Online check in does not work, ever. Late boarding all 4 flights inconvenient access to boarding pass. Was required to stand in line for 30 minutes to get boarding pass for connection instead of getting boarding pass when I left. Also, no kiosk to get it myself. Just about missed my connection do to these delays. No one is in a hurry at this airline"
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Cons: "Had to cancel. Impossible to workout fair flight change for outgoing flight only - caused cancellation and repurchase return leg for no reason but greed, as Aer Lingus did not impose this. After multiple long waiting periods on the phone to work this out no one ever picked up. We will never book through Kayak/JustFly again."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room. Friendly staff. Decent meal. Reminds me of how the airlines used to act."
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Pilot failed to inform us why we were sitting on the tarmac for 40 mins before taking off."
Pros: "Very good Organisation at the Dublin Airport"
Cons: "No snack - expensive baggage-fee"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Not very happy with Aer Lingus’s ground crew or customer service or the way they run things. And Dublin airport is an unorganized mess. Probably will never fly with them again. Gave no concessions for canceling my flight out to Amsterdam."
Pros: "Space for legs unlike ryanair"
Cons: "NO COMPLIMENTARY WATER OR COFFEE. SEATS larger and MORE COMFORTABLE"
Pros: "Even if Aer LIngus is considered a low cost, I felt it was everything but that. The plane looked new, the board computers were modern and had the latest movies, there were charging docks for phones and even internet. We got to Orlando 30 minutes ahead of schedule, which was great!"
Cons: "Overall good experience"
Pros: "It was a simple layover!"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and efficient. The flight was smooth aside from the minor turbulence."
Cons: "I sat in a seat with a broken entertainment screen and the WiFi was so slow it was unusable. The seat I sat in also would recline on its own at times. It made for a very long annoying and boring flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and nice."
Cons: "Children were running up and down the aisle during the flight. This is not a reflection of the staff, but it made trips to the bathroom difficult and cumbersome."
Pros: "New plane which was good, a little cramped but all in all ok for overseas flight."
Cons: "Too much time spent with drinks, food, no choices, and duty free. I just want to sleep on overnight planes but activity and lights made it difficult for nearly two hours, I travel Southwest and Alaska in the US quite a bit, they take drink orders and then serve on tray. It works MUCH better. No tea/ coffee in am, third time that has happened, perhaps could offer it for self serve available in the galley until 30 minutes before landing."
Cons: "Crew is borderline aggressive and arrogant."
Cons: "Flight delayed by a day. No reasonable efforts to get us there through another airline."
Cons: "delay before take off was one hour"
Pros: "Good staff, nice entertainment options. Pilot spoke to the cabin about flight route, turbulence, things to see out the window, etc."
Cons: "No alcoholic drinks with meal on an international flight, bags were lost on the flight home."
Pros: "Sat in exit row, so leg room was great. Entertainment: played 5 card draw with my wife."
Cons: "Aer Lingus' model is kind of no frills, so can't be upset about no movies, free drinks, etc."
Pros: "Overall good flight. Everyone was nice. Flight attendants were attentive. Plane was nice, clean, comfortable."
Cons: "I had to pay for my wine. Usually my drinks have been free on trans Atlantic flights. Also movies were very limited, not a great selection."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "System wouldn't allow me to check in online but my wife, who was on the same booking, had no problems. Also, did not appreciate being charged for a cup of tea and a biscuit. It was only four euros fifty but still, seems like that ought to be included in the price of the ticket."
Pros: "Overall very. I was there when the check station was down caused delays. But staff were very helpful."
Cons: "Getting through security check very slow. Not sure what the answer is but need to be looked urgently. Otherwise I enjoyed everything.. P.kehoe..sunnybank Farm.. Portersize.. Grange con.. Co. Kildare"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and ultimately canceled. what a chaotic experience coming and going to Ireland. poor service and customer relation"
Pros: "We did arrive early, and safely to our destination. Pilot was informative and efficient. Staff are hit or miss on friendliness and efficiency."
Cons: "Second flight with aer Lingus, second time my baggage has been lost. Phone operators are shockingly rude and unhelpful, and retrieving my luggage is an unnecessary pain. Hopefully this time will be less frustrating than the last one. I'll simply never understand what is so difficult about putting baggage on the flight it is meant to be on; there were at least twenty other people both times that had missing luggage. Food this time was pretty gross, but have never had an issue with it personally before."
Pros: "I loved the electronic checkin and the quick bag drop. The crew were also very nice."
Cons: "Not polite and patient enough"
Pros: "Flight was delayed 40 mins because Aer Lingus was unable to meet departure time and Air Traffic Control couldn't fit them into the departing flights rotation outside of their originally scheduled time. As a result, the airplane was stuck at the gate for 30 minutes. The rest we spent taxiing to what seemes the furthest end of the airport. The airplane hadn't been cleaned in a while as was evident by extremely sticky and smelly tray tables in our row."
Cons: "Aer Lingus personnel were incompetent and inefficient. Most were more interested in chatting with coworkers than actually assisting customers. Seats had not been assigned despite my previous assurance from EA customer service folks, and special meal requests for my wife and child had not been added to our booking record. Calling Aer Lingus almost always requires you to hold 30 minutes before anyone answers. Again, I suspect they are just as disinterested in helping customers as the ground personnel."
Pros: "Aircraft was clean, new, crew was courteous, in flight services were certainly satisfactory"
Cons: "Two major problems, when we went to check in, we stood in line and were very rudely told by some German British Airways attendent that we couldn't check in with them and that we needed to go to Aer Lingus, this even though our reservations were through British Airways. Second, despite my efforts over a few months to make seat reservations, my daughter and i were separated. Aer Lingus reps in rome fixed that and I was very, very grateful for that, but when we got to the Dublin/Boston leg of our flight, they couldn't or wouldn 't fix the seating issue. On board the plane though, the flight attendents arranged for my daughter and I to sit together. Really upset me that I didn't know until the very last minute, on the plane, whether I was going to be able to sit next to my child."
Pros: "The food was elevated and we were fed twice on our 9 hour flight! The beverage service was also provided often with a good assortment. I loved that there were new release movies available for free. The staff was friendly and available. If I were to do another long flight like that, I would seek out British Airways."
Cons: "It was all great."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The snack was really bad."
Pros: "After some delay, they arranged for me to get a somewhat stale piece of fish from business class that was left over..."
Cons: "I had phoned up to order a gluten-free meal. They 'lost' the lunch, but I did get a gluten-free scone on the approach into the USA."
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good, crew were nice. Seats are way to tight...rididulous, like a cattle car."
Cons: "I was travelling with an injured ankle, had paid for a one way trip last minute because of a BA screw up on my RT ticket, and asked that I be given two seats if possible so I could put my foot up. I was moved to an aisle rather than center, but no empty seat, event though there was one in front, behind my row, and several rows back. Could have easily accommodated my request. My original ticket was MIA/LON/DUB...travelling for funeral, and changed leg from LON/DUB to LON/SNN to travel with my sister...paid extra for the ticket, told them I would not be using my LON/DUB leg. Was told no problem. When I went to re-confirm adn do nline check in on the 24th, my ticket had been marked trip completed...there was not return leg DUB/BARCELONA/MIA...just vanished. Paid 900Euros. Seems there should be a refund coming my way for the unused portion of my ticket. I would like to be contacted by customer service. 954.662.9537"
Pros: "Crew personable and efficient."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was very good. lots of choices."
Cons: "slow check-in terrible, website was down so no on-line check in, stuck in a window seat. seats in main cabin are too small. too many chiefs and not enough indians... check in at CDG was a joke, terrible service!"
Cons: "No veg food. Crew was not accomidating."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 mins"
Cons: "Size of main course food portion. For a tiny bird. Not to mention the size of snack before landing- such an unpleasant joke( food hiden in such a big box, but once you opened there was a tiny muffin with a sip of orange juice) Cmon guys you can give it more. A simple sandwich with cup of tea/coffee would be a much better and sophisticated option. Comparing to competition you are behind."
Air France service was superb. The airline did their best to expedite the boarding process even with the constant changes of Covid19 guidelines
Pros: "How great everyone was and smooth sailing."
Cons: "Made sure the flight was not over booked."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4+ hours"
Cons: "2 hours delays from LAX to CDG then additional two hours delay from CDG to CAI, this is disappointing"
Pros: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears. The airplane seems to be 30 years behind time. Crew was unfriendly and smiling faces are not part of the uniform."
Cons: "Very narrow seats and thim cushion. No entertainment offered an do means of recharging electronic devices."
Cons: "Boarding (by bus) was a total chaos. I had to stand for about 50 minutes, either on the crowded bus or, after climbing with great difficulty three flights of stairs to a high jet-bridge (I am 76), standing there forever with 200 persons waiting to get access to the plane. Totally unacceptable. They started the boarding process early (50 minutes before departure), but passengers were allowed to actually board the plane at the time it was supposed to take off."
Pros: "Boarding procedures and crew were top. Wines and beverages excellent and even in super economy water was served several times"
Cons: "The food could have been much better, should consider doing everything organic. As it was, the chicken in the meal was awful, the dessert terrible. The rice in the salad hard, almost uncooked. The only good quality food was the bread and the cheese"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "In flight complimentary food and drink service could have been better."
Pros: "The whole crew is so kind"
Cons: "Delta made my whole first flying experience the best."
Pros: "The food selection and drinks, given our coach class, were excellent. Nice attention to the passengers."
Cons: "Placed in last row w/ non-reclining seats, even though bought tix 7 months early. We travel w/ only carry-on bags. AF allows 35 kg each but only 12 kg in cabin. I asked, online, twice, if we could have a couple of extra kg for hand pieces. Rec’d only auto. luggage policy. Forced to check both bags."
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are a brilliant idea!"
Cons: "An explanation to passengers as to why there was a backup between the gate and the plane."
Cons: "Poor service. Terrible food. Aging aircraft. Terrible in-flight entertainment system. Really not good AirFrance."
Pros: "Crew and food were great."
Cons: "Old plane. Seats were super tiny and uncomfortable. Couldn’t sit in the same spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."
Pros: "The gate reps from CDG to MSP were professionals. The cabin crew on the Delta flight were exceptional! This was not my experience in Copenhagen with the Air France staff, they seemed to be self centered and rude."
Cons: "Delta please make excellence a priority in all areas of customer service. Set high standards for staff so customers know that you appreciate them and are ready for business. The world is at the customer's fingertips, let their first choice be Delta. When their are bad days, customers will understand"
Cons: "Two hour delay meant we missed our connection. Then given a very late flight and had to haggle for ages to get earlier flight and told we should pay extra for it!"
Cons: "It was great trip thank you Air France"
Pros: "Good food and service"
Cons: "they lost our luggage very inconvenient"
Cons: "Horrible delay. I got letd to my next flyight. The airline stuff didn’t assist me at all and didn’t wanted to help me getting to my next flight. Horrible"
Pros: "Staff was so helpful and attentive to our needs.Providing service with a smile."
Pros: "Very quiet"
Cons: "We were in the last few rows on a turbulent route. The yaw damper constantly overcorrected, resulting in lots of side to side motion for the passengers"
Cons: "Separated me and my wife for the whole flight! Could not accommodate us together. This reservation was made over 6 weeks ago !!!"
Pros: "The size of the plane was nice. They had a good move selection. The vegan meal I was given was great."
Cons: "It was loud, cold, the food was just okay at least my vegan meal was the bomb but it would have been better had when we booked the flight it allowed me to also choose this option for my husband. Since he is vegan as well."
Cons: "I didn’t have time to make it through customs. Missed my flight"
Pros: "Good seat width Great movie selection Great food and drinks Nice and large A380"
Cons: "The interface of the screens seemed old Need to anticipate the needs of the customer better For example, they brought me my special meal first, but I had to wait 30 minutes later to get a drink to accompany it. The food was getting old. Did not see any newspaper/periodical selection. That would have been nice."
Cons: "Airplane delay to take off 1 unknown reason After landing in Paris 50 min sitting inside airplane moving around Late for flight transfer. Sitting in Paris airport 5 hours. Customer service no working. Never fly Air France anymore !"
Pros: "nice drink selection on board flights"
Cons: "My pregnant wife was downgraded from business to economy 20 minutes before departure because the airline made a mistake with the reservation for our puppy traveling in the cabin with us. If this were not enough, the airline also lost one of our bags so this week we have to file for compensation for both begin downgraded and for the contents of our 30 kilo bag which never made it to Ho Chi Minh. Air France was a complete and total disaster and I would strongly recommend all friends and colleagues to find alternative airlines for travel"
Pros: "Food was Fantastic, Air France the Best on Air."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "The space and the people"
Cons: "I was asked to change my seat repeatedly"
Pros: "Boarding & crew (inc ground staff & check-in) all good."
Cons: "Food not great - not all menu options available. Limited choice of drinks. Very small, low-resolution, seat-back screens with a luggish & outdated interface. Limited choice of movies."
Pros: "The price 50€ cheaper than the other operators. Quick flight. Kind crew."
Cons: "Lack organisation for checking. No difference if you have done the checking online. No breakfast on a 7am flight though included in the price."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "We ordered a vegetarian meal. However, the vegetarian option offered to those who did not order a special meal looked better than the vegetarian option that we received."
Pros: "Leg room is bigger than average, there is also a foot step which helps you to relax."
Cons: "There must be lice on the plane, either from the customer or on the seats. Got bitten 6 times on the leg and butt!!! And this is not the first time hearing same story, Air France definitely needs to disinfect the plane more thoroughly. Media center is outdated, touch screen isn’t working well, felt being punched in head every time when ppl behind you tries to touch the screen!"
Pros: "No issues, quick trip, friendly staff, comfortable ride..."
Cons: "We were rebooked, which understandably happens for any number of reasons. However, we were not informed or asked about our preference until our luggage was checked through! The staff especially in Chicago where we began this awful experience couldn't care less about our situation. Then AIr France lost our luggage and provided no help in locating them. We had to rely on folks who had friends working in Zagreb Airport to locate them. Air France is incompetent, insensitive and unprofessional. If you have an important trip avoid Air France - they treat you like captives not customers."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane late departing allegedly because of cleaning the plane, but why was the cleaning done that late? Also, ground crew remarkably uninformed about what was going on in the plane. Poor communication between plane and ground crew. No explanation from pilot as to continuing reason for delay even after we boarded. Departure time, 1.00 pm, boarded at 1.10, actual departure time 1.45, causing me to almost miss my connection and definitely causing my bags to miss the connection."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, but the sliding action, instead of recline, took getting used to. Food was very good. Snacks available on demand, along with drinks. Complimentary wine with meal was also quite good. Entertainment system was first rate with plenty of options for TV. movies, music, games, etc..."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle two seats in the center of the 777 left me stuck for most of the flight. Got up only once. Wife's feet and ankles were swollen by the end of the flight. Not enough legroom to move much during the flight and not enough aisle space to get around with the plane so full. Have made flights twice as long on the 747 and were able to get up and walk."
Pros: "A short flight but attendants served us a snack and water with a smile."
Cons: "No business class"
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Long check in wait in Dubai. Food was shocking - inedible!"
Cons: "2h delay for "crew reasons" TV had only 7 of the 22 channels with reception"
Pros: "The crews were nice and polite, food was good, in an hour we just ate and drank which was awesome. Thank you."
