Overall it was all good and Swiss Air is a great company —however check in time in MIami was 1 hour and 45 minutes. This was very frustrating
Pros: "The crew and entertainment"
Pros: "Delay was for 30 min"
Cons: "Better entertainment for an 8 hour flight. Take under consideration that tall guys can’t be squeezed in for 8 hours.Give some space to people who really need it"
Pros: "From Geneva to Athens we use the AEGEAN AIRLINES and the flight was very good over all. We had to use the AEGEAN because we missed the SWISS flight due to United's delays."
Pros: "Officers in the airport are rude and offensive, racial discrimination."
Cons: "Change their employees, arrogant, not professional"
Pros: "Bombardier C Series. Most leg room and comfort of any plane"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attentive"

Pros: "Full array of entertainment."
Cons: "Seats were not too comfortable."
Pros: "Swiss is Swiss"
Pros: "Crew was lovely! Friendly and happy. Well organized and responsive."
Cons: "Overseas flight seats were tight going and coming, and being that long a flight you feel you are sitting on top of your neighbors. Air quality descends on a long full flight, it became claustrophobic by the end. There was only an option for vegetarian-vegan, but I am not vegan. I won't do that again. My daughter's bag didn't make to SFO, even though we were early to check in."
Cons: "I asked the Chinese flight attendant in economy to please ask the man in front of me to put his seat up since the captain and purser had already asked us to do so in three languages The man in front of me refused to do so. She said she was going to start at the front of the plane and let him leave his seat back making it difficult to see my tv monitor. I thought that she should’ve said that it was time to put your seat up. It was frustrating that she didn’t support me and the request of the captain. Your seats are very uncomfortable upright when the person in front of you has their seat back."
Pros: "Customer service excellent even though I was in the economic class they made me feel first class!"
Pros: "Food was tasty. Crew was very good."
Cons: "Legroom was horrible, and I’m 5’-7”! Ancient entertainment units."

Pros: "crew great smooth flight"
Cons: "no problem and happy crew."
Pros: "Professionalism of the crew"
Cons: "First there was a mechanical with plane 1. They changed our gate. Then plane 2 was too small and the flight was overbooked by 40. Then the coffee machine was leaking. Then the crew passed their legal time and had to be replaced. Bottom line almost 3 h delay after 6h in ZRH coming from Mumbai"
Pros: "Online check-in was easy, boarding was smooth, and time on the flight seemed to go by quickly. Seats were a little too close together in economy to fully relax but that's the nature of economy seating. The dinner was very tasty, crew was friendly."
Cons: "My seat-back entertainment system did not work, but I had not planned to use it anyway. For the other three members of my family it did work, but not very well. Fortunately they had other options they brought with them."
Pros: "Courteous Staff Excellent Service and enough concern for the guests."
Pros: "Flight left in time, easy quick boarding. Food was great, we had dinner and breakfast snack"
Pros: "The crew greeted me with a warm welcome when I was the last to boars the plane due to a delayed flight connection. The flight was very comfortable and the crew incredibly sincere in their service."
Cons: "Was sent through two redeem security screenings. In Zürich. I doubt this was the airline's fault but it had been a very early morning and it was challenging to remain patient."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, everything was on time and extremely efficient. I don't have kids but I did notice how great the flight attendants were with the kids around me. Great job! Already recommended SWISS to friends and family"
Cons: "Even one member of the crew was not very nice with my young daughters."
Cons: "Never happened because I was rerouted through Istanbul. And for anyone checking Istanbul is 3 hours in the wrong direction to my ultimate destination."
Pros: "The flights were Just as schedule, the arrival time was even earlier than planned. The crew is always available and tries to make the flight as comfortable as it can be. The food is brilliant in comparison to other airlines. To sum up, always a good choice. * this is my 8th flight with Swiss."
Pros: "Good service, efficient, professional"
Cons: "100% of our checked luggage was lost and two days into our one week biking trip in Sweden we have heard NOTHING from Swiss Air. No knowledge of where the four large bags are, no follow up and no help. Basically, we have been left with biking clothing and little hope that our bags will show up before we leave Sweden. Unacceptable and we will NEVER fly this airlines again."
Cons: "I had a good seat, the plane was comfortable and the crew was nice"
Pros: "Flight attendants were sympathetic and helpful."
Cons: "Delay after the pilot ensured we would arrive on time with the delay."

Pros: "I paid for seats"
Cons: "Sure many"
Pros: "Comfortable and Clean"
Cons: "The ife screen was extremely slow and unresponsive."
Pros: "The crew was good and the food from Frankfurt to Abuja was good"
Cons: "The layover time was extremely too long and would even be longer during my return"
Cons: "Lufthansa in Frankfurt is a nightmare. Gates are very far apart and Lufthansa scheduled layovers are very short. We were running close to 2 km from one end of the airport to other with little kids barely making our flights. Boarding was on tarmac even for 747, once in rain once in 40C degrees."
Pros: "The crew were nice and the service very good. The layover was short."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost so we had to go back to the airport the day after. In economy class the Last 3 central rows or even more, have no carryon storage. We were stuck with our carryons for over 7 hours during the flight Montreal Munich. This is the case if you fly their new A350-390."
Pros: "Everything Else"
Cons: "Too much cabin baggage."
Cons: "Impossible to do beter."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Stop overcharge people for 1 luggage :( very disappointed"
Cons: "Passport control in Frankfurt was slow, very long linen under staffed"

Pros: "The crew, both in SFO and on board where e excellent. We were well taken care of, in both area's. The service on the plane were top notch, anticipating our every need. The food was yummy and the entertainment great!"
Pros: "As a United 1K member and Star Alliance Gold member, I expected a little better treatment than being charged a premium to sit with my family in a 'rock bottom' basic seat."
Cons: "I was surprised to have to pay more for a basic seat. I really thought I had paid enough already. I could not get boarding pass tickets for the last leg of our fight. I was told that Lufthansa''s system does not communicate with United Airline System. I found this to be untrue because I have had code share flights between United and Luftansa for 20 years. At Munich I was told that they could not get me tickets either and said that there may be a security issue with me. Once I heard this I walked away."
Cons: "There was hardly any communication about the delay."
Cons: "Bathrooms rendered unusable by kids putting everything imaginable down the toilet."
Cons: "I didn’t like selection on movies"
Pros: "Tout était impeccable."
Cons: "We missed our connection in Munich due to a delay departing Washington, DC. Although we initially had two hours for the connection we were not informed or warned by Lufthansa about the distance from our arrival gate to the gate for our connecting flight. Further, we were not worn ahead of time that we should have built in additional time in our connection because in order to go from Munich to Valencia we would have to go through customs in Munich rather than at our designation. Delayed flight arrived at 9:30 AM and we ran from the H gates to the Shuttle terminal to reach the K gate Desperately trying to make our departure time of 9:50 AM. There were no instructions for passengers on the flight trying to make connections regarding the distance between gates or to be prepared to go through customs. Had we known that we would not make the flight in anyway shape or form because our flight out of DC was delayed by 2 1/2 hours, we would not have a rushed to try to make the connecting flight. Ultimately we were rerouted through Frankfurt and arrived in Valencia eight hours later they are intended time"
Pros: "The food was good, along with the service."
Cons: "Medical emergency in the row in front of me and all of the crew blocked my television screen so I could not watch my movie. I was sitting in first class."
Cons: "Not entertainment at all"
Pros: "Good staff and food."
Cons: "Flight was late and boarding was unorganized. When the person sitting in front of me moved their chair it hit my head and moved all my stuff, this should not happen. We should not feel our area moved because the person moved their seat in front of us."
Pros: "Thanks for continuing to offer complimentary, hot meals on your international flights! Crew very friendly. Despite being in economy cabin, crew attempted to make it a good experience."
Cons: "Long flight, bathrooms start to look ugly. Incoming plane landed way out on the tarmac, obligating passengers to be all packed into shuttle bus which took a long time to get to terminal."
Pros: "Service, food, and entertainment was great!"
Pros: "everything was good other than the entertainment package"
Cons: "not verymany movies to select"
Pros: "Everything went well."
Pros: "Usual good service for economy class on this airline"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great, The plane was very clean and the bathrooms was HUGE!"
Cons: "uncomfortable seat, off set from the seat in front of me so my entertainment screen was at an odd angle to watch. Food was ok but they had a sauce on the chicken that was not very appetizing. It actually made my wife sick and lets just say she did not keep her dinner. Also, I asked for a scotch after take off and it was a small shot and after dinner I asked for another and it was just a whisper. It did not even cover one ice cube. It would have been nice to get at least a full shot."
Cons: "The passenger behaind, was a tall guy. All the 7 hours flight i had to fight him to allow me puting my back sest dowm on his hearting legs. Why didnt hay extra and seat where it fits his size?"
Pros: "Crew hospitality excellent"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I was sitting at the tale end. Seat was extremely uncomfortable. I was trying to rest yet flight attendants and several passengers were talking loud. Crews kept forgetting passengers orders/requests. A lady sitting besides me pushed a call bottom 3 times to get noticed. Flight attendants were too busy chatting with passengers to help other passengers. I have never seen that type of services before."
Pros: "Premium economy gives you extra confort, more space to sleep better."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 40 minutes."
Pros: "Was on time all the way, food was OK service was fine"
Cons: "I was so cold in my seat I couldn't get comfortable"
Cons: "New entertainment program didn't have good new movies or music collection, food was not good, some crew members were harsh"
Pros: "It was all great!"
Pros: "great service and flight"
Cons: "Food was awful. Looked like something you would find in prison. My second leg did not even have vegan options for me, as I ordered online weeks ago. I was so hungry after almost 14 hours of flying plus a 12-hour layover. I am not impressed with this airline."
Cons: "Not enough indian movies. Too many other foreign movies. English movies were too old. Frankfurt airport is the worst airport. Terminal to terminal is too far."
Pros: "Good cabin crew, good food Easy to use entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic"
Pros: "Entertainment choices, flight crew, terrific seats"
Cons: "Think boarding process would be so much smoother if you went from the rear of the plane to the front."
Pros: "Promptness, profesional and nice service. Everything overall."
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "only one type of food offered. presented in a rude way."
Pros: "Great staff on board made our flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Being outside in the rain while we waited to board the plane left us soaking wet as we sat down. There was a meowing cat on board the plane that was an interesting experience as well."
Pros: "United new food menu is much improved (well, it could only get better . . .). And the decision to give free drinks again on Trans Atlantic flights is much appreciated. Previous policy just seemed mean cf other airlines"
Pros: "quiet on-time flight"
Cons: "Overnight flights are usually a pain in the neck, which is obviously not the airline's fault"
Pros: "Got to sit in the top deck of the A380; Luftansa sets aside a small portion of the top deck for economy passengers. Flight was much quieter for economy passengers than on any other plane I've ever flown because the top deck is further from the engines. It was an extraordinary flight."
Cons: "Food was OK, but nothing special."
Cons: "The connections for audio wasn'y working, false contact..."
Pros: "Constant food & drinks; large selection of movies, shows, music, games. Very courteous staff."
Pros: "Likes? Food, drinks, courtesy."
Pros: "Great customer service!"
Pros: "It got us to our destination."
Cons: "Seats sucked. Screaming kids. Wouldn’t let us bring our carry-on for the last leg: Lisbon to Barcelona even though there was room."
Cons: "They boarded the plane from both the back and the front at the same time with no direction as to which rows should go where. BIG cluster in the middle of the plane!!"
Cons: "They turned the air conditioner to a higher temp to accommodate a few complaints and the rest of us suffered. First and cabin crew had it at a refreshing temp . For the last 20 minutes of the flight they turned it down again. To late"
Cons: "Good flight, on time. Service ok. Captain did a good job communicating. Nice touch with wine at dinner."
Pros: "Crew was superb!! Very attentive and extremely willing to help people when called upon."
Cons: "Aircraft entertainment screens were not working at all at a lot of seats. Airbus 330-300 was dated and the cabin amenities were in disrepair. But overall the flight satisfied everything that was needed!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, nice plane"
Cons: "Very expensive extras like seats and luggage"
Cons: "They took an extremely long time clearing away the dirty dinner trays, which meant that the tray table had to be down. This made it near impossible to get up to use the restroom or to stretch."
Pros: "food and price"
Cons: "boarding... control the luggage size"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "A modern airplane properly equipped with padded seats and provisioned with quality food. Charging outlets!!"
Cons: "The Airbus 330 is onder Verizon with classic beats with less place and pedals. Also the personal screens are far outdated"
Pros: "Everything was very good."
Pros: "It was a rather empty flight so I was able to have space to myself to stretch out."
Cons: "Everything. We were late boarding, late taking off, micromanaged by the crew like we’re stupid, the food was truly god awful atrocious... and there were like 20 movies to choose from for a 7 hour flight. Furthermore, there were NO snacks available for purchase so you were forced to eat gross food."
Cons: "The entertainment is very poor. The programs are not on demand and the screeen is old, small and very poor quality. The A330-200 I flew from Boston to Lisbon was excellent and had the new lie flat seats and on-demand entertainment. Big difference between the two airplanes."
Pros: "I’m taking offFlight was smooth and service was great."
Cons: "Flight was smooth and service was great. Long wait before taking off."
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "Delayed transport to flight, tiny non-reclining seats. Food offering mediocre and had to flag down flight attendant just to get water they we're giving to everyone but some of us apparently."
Pros: "I travel for pleasure a lot and this was my first time flying TAP Portugal. I flew from LIS to MAD and the crew were overall more friendly and smiling than on US domestic flights. The plane was clean and bright. I did not notice if the seats recline. I will be using them for short flights throughout Europe when I return for visit."
Cons: "Flight was so short they rushed us eating the cookie and only water was served that I could tell. Also, TAP has their own boarding check-in wing of Lisbon airport. It was not clearly marked and Eropean arrows pointing up could mean to continue forward, as well as go to upper floors."
Cons: "Unruly boarding lines. Plane late .flight attendant less than friendly"
Pros: "The drinks were available."
Cons: "The drinks were expensive."
Cons: "Boarding took longer than expected. Flight was delayed then was delayed a second time once everyone was boarded. Smaller plane than the usual TAP planes, but okay flight."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great."
Pros: "Quick... I was happy to be out of there"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Late takeoff. Late arrival. Had to run thru the terminal to catch the next leg. Lost luggage."
Pros: "They broke my bag, it took them over 3 months to answer my complaint and then they said that the Manufacturer would take care of it. On top of that they made me pay to check on my bag for each flight, including connections, and they didn’t even reimburse that"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, we boarded on time and landed a bit early which was nice. We recieved little snack packs that had a sandwich and a granola bar or fruit snacks and a juice."
Cons: "The seats were not very comfortable to sleep on for 6 hours as they didn't recline back too much but that is to be expected in 2nd class seats."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "Not being told up front of having to pay for my luggage. First I was over charged on departure ($90.00) and also having to pay on return flight. Travel agent never made us aware of this."
Pros: "All flights have been on time. Seats and entertainment system are acceptable"
Cons: "Apart from the unorganized immigration and check-in process the service is very average. On both transatlantic flights the toilets did not work properly. Furthermore the business practice to charge you for any luggage $ 90 at airport without prior notice during the booking process is quite unpleasant and uncommon for transatlantic flights. Would be good that airline as well as internet travel agent would advice about this additional costs in a more transparent way before you purchase the ticket"
Cons: "had to pay bag fee, though website said 1 hold bag was included!"
Pros: "Modern appointed plane with places for technology and charging points"
Cons: "Ground staff insisted carry on bags were checked in and implied this was mandatory and I complied only to discover later that majority were allowed to ignore this. Also plane was late"
Pros: "So accommodating!! Top of the line!"
Cons: "The boarding process seemed very unorganized. The people and police that were working weren't friendly at all."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great, plane was clean, smooth flying, takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Check in and bag drop took us 1 hour even though we had already checked in online. hard, and narrow seats, needs more legroom for international travel, armrest between my wife and I was very wide and wouldn't go up all the way making it extremely uncomfortable for us on a flight from Miami to Portugal. My wife's seat didn't recline because it was broken. And to top it all off they lost one of our luggage tags because the lady in Miami tagged the bag with somebody else's name and destination on it. Still waiting to hear if I'm going to have my luggage for one year anniversary vacation....!"
Cons: "Some delays at the airport but service is excellent."
Pros: "Timeliness of check-in and the flight."
Cons: "Some not so friendly crew members on this flight. There was one tall, blonde flight attendant who wore so much perfume that I could taste it every time she walked down the aisle. You can't have that in an enclosed space. In this day and age of so many people having food allergies to nuts, why would you serve a dessert with almonds?? My daughter almost ate it because there was no warning label. It scares me to think what might have happened at 12,000 feet."
Pros: "The plane was new, clean, and spacious. The staff was mostly helpful and friendly,"
Cons: "Short flight so no entertainment or drink/food."
Pros: "Crew very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Slow boarding; food"
Pros: "The plane had a helpful crew, the plane was modern in that they had a usb charger and plugs for both US and European voltages and there was plenty of space to relax in during my flight."
Pros: "Efficient, courteous flight attendants"
Pros: "Wine was nice and metal container of so-called business class utilities (socks, tooth brush, etc.)"
Cons: "Seats are coach seats! No entertainment. No AC power sources. Shame!"
Pros: "the crew were amazingly warm, professional and attentive."
Cons: "no food option without a dead animal in it"
Pros: "Great flying as always. Best leg room anywhere."
Cons: "On flight food."
Pros: "I like that there was wine event though this was a 'short flight' - this never happens in the US, so was a nice surprise"
Cons: "There was a 'five minute' delay due too a mechnical issue with the bathroom light. The issue was communicated after about 30min and then took another 30min to sort out. Would appreciate clearrer expectation management - don't tell me it's taking five minutes when you need an hour. This feeds into old stereotypes around timeliness. Also, the seats were pretty small - I am 6"4 and was in a seat that did not recline (in front of emergency exit row)"
Cons: "Less leg room than what I would consider standard. I am 6 feet tall and my knees touched the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Crew and flight were satisfactory."
Cons: "Entertainment was non-existent"
Great flight, arrived early.....perfect
Cons: "There were delays (3 times)"
Pros: "A staff of 2 attendants on a crowded A 321 is minimal, not optimal"
Pros: "I landed safely"
Cons: "The infotainment system didn’t work. Headphones connection is faulty. Everything else was ok."
Pros: "It arrived on time."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was way too cold. People we wearing their jackets and when I mentioned it to the cabin crew member she said a few other people would have to make a similar comment before she could request turning the temperature up. There was also a glitch in the system so that the reading lights for each seat could only be operated by the seat directly in front. The food was very uninspiring and poorly presented. The tea and coffee were awful!!!!!! The choice of movies,etc was very limited. Thank goodness it was a night flight and not too long!"
Cons: "Connections to US destinations now require your checked in baggage to be processed before you can proceed to your connecting flights. The real problem is that this is no sign or communications describing this. Everyone is simply stopped in the corridor and told that they cannot proceed farther until their name comes up green on a monitor. Unfortunately the monitor switches displays so frequently that it is almost impossible to read. In addition to that it seems names do not always appear on the monitor unless you get your boarding pass scanned a the desk (this is not communicated to you unless you ask why your name is not on the monitor at all). People late for connecting flights (because of inbound flight delays) are required to wait without explanation sometimes needlessly if they don't have a checked bag. A nightmare if you're trying to make your connection. In addition once you've cleared that hurdle you need to go through security again (something we were unprepared for since we were already in the secure area. You then proceed to customs and then your connecting flight (if you haven't already missed it by then). Allow lots of time to get to your connecting flight, and ask to get you boarding pass scanned at that mysterious "checked bag" stop in the corridor."
Pros: "Once on the flight, everything went well."
Cons: "Real nightmare as I had booked YUL-LYS-BRU with Brussels Airlines (SN). YUL-LYS was operated with Air Canada. Came within 4 minutes of missing flight despite being at airport 3 hrs early. SN had not released ticket to Air Canada so they could not check me in. Had to call SN customer service after AC could not check me in, then wait and wait as they had to try to correct the mistake 3x before AC counter could issue boarding passes. Terrible experience going through this with 2 small kids waiting. It’s as if the two airlines’ systems don’t communicate but passenger is responsible for resolving."
Pros: "The crew inside the plane was friendly pretty much the only thing good about the travelling"
Cons: "The seats were not confortable and old and no entertainment at all ! The food was horrible and the customer service from air Canada at Montreal airport was rude and unprofessional 3 hours delay without even an apology or an explanation! I went to see a person from a air canada at a desk at the boarding gates and he wouldn't even have the courtesy to give me 1 minute of his time to explain why the plane is late his awnser was wait for the announcement and you will see his attitude was very apathetic. Overall I was very disappointed"
Pros: "Our daughter's first time traveling alone. She slept most of the time and she said it was fine and comfortable enough."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour and then once up in the air, passengers were told the food cart didn't make it the 6 hour flight so no food or snacks for the entire flight from Montreal to San Francisco."
Pros: "Every thing expert the food"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The steward on the plane was friendly, funny and accommodating to all. He took time to engage some young children before takeoff. Took into consideration who was travelling together and left a positive impression! Plane boarded early and was loaded and ready to roll AHEAD of scheduled take off time."
Cons: "Was put on a Turkish airlines flight - landed in India 12 hours AFTER scheduled landing. My luggage did not reach India. After numerous calls got only 1 out of 2 of my bags ; 2nd bag still missing 1 week after landing in India WOW"
Pros: "the crew was nice and helpul with my worry about loosing the flight to tel aviv because the flight to toronto was late due to snow in toronto."
Cons: "while on my way to the airport i got a message that my flight was cancelled. luckily i had a friend who took care of putting me on another flight to toronto. weather created changes but just sending a message your flight is cancelled is not the right way to deal with things. when finally arriving to toronot i had to rush to my flight to tel aviv, it was insane, just to realize that also this flight was postponed due to the weather. air canada should be more involved in helping travelers to deal with their connections."
Cons: "Although we boarded on time, there was a wait of over 1.5h in the plane. First time in my life i was beyond uncomfortable. What i couldn't understand was why we had to be in the plane for the refueling. It makes more sense to wait in the airport at the gate rather in a tight confined place. I'm overall pissed at the situation. Not to mention my seat was defective and although the seat was up, it would push back the moment you put weight. The flight attendant kept on asking me to place my seat in the upright position (which wasn't possible). To get her off my back, i held my back up with my own weight. I'm disappointed with aircanada."
Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."
Pros: "Service was excellent - staff was very attentive, pleasant and helpful and seemed like they truly enjoyed their job. We will definitely use them again when flying from Montreal"
Pros: "The gate agents were polite and the boarding was relatively smooth. Food was fine and flight attendants were Excellent!!!"
Cons: "First point of contact was incredibly rude. First she told me she couldn't find my reservation. Once she did, she gave me a lecture about my married name. Next she refused to let me take my carry on bag saying it was too large even though it fit on all flights to Montreal. Once I proved it would fit with the luggage sizer she had moved on to another customer and ignored me for 10 minutes while I stood there even though my boarding passes were printed. When I got to the flight, I found it could have been gate checked but there was no need as the flight was NOT FULL and my bag fit with no problem at all in the overhead bins. In 35 years of flying this was the worst experience I've ever had."
Pros: "Ease of boarding - no long queues. Offer to put hand luggage in the hold with no charge."
Pros: "Liked my seating which I paid for dearly"
Cons: "No entertainment at all!"
Cons: "Extreme delays on my return flight which made me miss my connection and get rebooked on another flight for the next day. We were delayed on departure, then on the tarmac, then in the air, and finally when getting off the plane. I am glad that I was rebooked and was given a hotel to stay at, but I did not like the way I was treated by Air Canada staff at customs. I passed through customs only to be sent back into Canada after having crossed through security because the staff decided to close. We were told by other staff members that it was up to them to decide when they were done and to talk them. I ran through the whole airport with about 7 other people to make it. Why make us cross through security only to send us back? There was no one there to guide us on what to do. I had to go through the whole thing again the following day only to have my face cream taken away (it is technically cream, not a liquid) and then be detained. None of this happened AT ALL the day before. I'd give more details but it was a complete mess."
Cons: "This flight was two and a half hours late. We lost an hour and 45 minutes due to a mechanical problem with our airplane, then lost another 45 minutes due to a storm in Toronto. Air Canada blamed the weather for our late arrival, my missed connection and claimed no responsabilility for the fact that my trip ended up taking more than 24 hours when it was supposed to take about 9 hours. Also, there was the matter of the lost luggage which was a carry on that I accepted to have checked as the Air Canada staff seemed desperate to check our carry ons on a full flight to Toronto from Montreal. I ended up spending the night in the Vancouver airport without access to my luggage."
Pros: "Movies for free, although the seat next to mine didn't work. Plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Some of it was air canada, some of it was weather and some of it was the montreal airport. scheduled for 6:00 rescheduled 7:00 rescheduled 8:00 boarded 8:30 took off 10:00 1. air caanda - boarded the plane, then came on with announcement that we would be sitting on tarmac for an 1.5 hours. We were delayed for hour and half already, why load us and make us sit in a warm aircraft. Air Canada offered us 10.00 vouchers for dinner... problem was they did it so late nothing was open. It should have been done earlier. 2. weather - caused the initial problem in NYC, no fault of air canada. 3. Montreal airport - Our gates were switched 3 times during the delays. Which happens, however the gate changes started at one end of the airport, moved to the other end of the airport and back to the original end."
Pros: "Boarding was good, but pretty bad flights overall. One of the worst I ever had in my life! The plane seats we had had so little cushion that is was painful to sit. My husband was avoiding touching the back by leaning on his arms and he is great shape, don't think elderly and in pain by himself...Entertainment simply non-existent and food as well... The crew were borderline okay. Plus the plane drove for about 20 minutes at Montreal and about 20 in Chicago before we left and after we landed...Let's say I saw parts of O'Hare in Chicago, I didn't even know existed!!!"

Pros: "Wireless was free and we were able to log on to the entertainment website to watch movies."
Cons: "Each chair didn't have a tv. There weren't any plugs to keep electronics charged up."
Cons: "Our flight was turned around after we had gotten to Toronto. They claimed that they had shut down the airport due to bad weather. They took us back to Montreal where we sat in on the tarmac for two hours. They said that there was a second storm Coming through Toronto and that the airport was shutdown again. They then canceled our flight. After standing in line for three hours at customer service they told me they couldn't get me on another flight until tomorrow night and ariving at my destination two days later. The coustomer service rep then told me to just go ahead and call the customer service number because she couldn't help me. They said they wouldn't pay for any accommodations because it was weather related. The issue with their argument is that only one other flight was canceled into Toronto. Air Canada actually had several more flights that day that that landed in Toronto after they told us the airport was closed. The customer service was embarrassing. They had us wait for over three hours to be helped and there were four desk which at most times they only had two people working. Many times there was only one person. The entire thing was pathetic."
Pros: "Air crew was nice. Pilot nice too."
Cons: "Old plane. Smaller seat size than comparable airlines. Terrible food: a slice of oily cske, served in a plastic sleeve, must be the new low for an international breakfast...no individual tvs on the sets....hello, step into the 21st century.... And the selection available via your iPad or laptop and their wifi was small, and old...we had paid to upgrade our economy tickets to the next level, and we expected more...the size of the upgraded seats was not great and there wa no foot rest to put your feet on, which is a significant help to someone who flies so many hours and can assist with circulation...."
Cons: "Tough to have a long-haul flight without functioning seat-back entertainment. Mine never worked. Asked three times about it - three times the system was "rebooted" - to no avail. I told each subsequent flight attendant that it had already been reset - they just "tried" it again. Very frustrating over the course of several hours. No one ever checked to see whether their re-set actually worked. Also, not sure why the window seats now have an arm rest on the window side of the seat - seriously interferes with passenger comfort when trying to sleep."
Cons: "One of my three flights was unnecessarily delayed by two hours, enough that I missed my last connection and had to stay overnight in Vancouver. There were no technical complications or weather complications. It was simply because something had been misscheduled and the flight crew needed a longer rest time between flights. This is completely avoidable, and the attendent who checked me in even said so. While the hotel and shuttle were paid for, Air Canada only gave me a $7 breakfast voucher, which was only redeemable at the hotel's measly breakfast counter rather than anywhere in the airport. For the unnecessary delays I had to deal with, i should had received more credit. This was an utterly disappointing travel experience."
Cons: "The 6 1/2 hour flight from Montréal CANADA to San Francisco, CA USA, is considered a "shared border flight," which means 1) you pay $25 for your first checked bag, $35 for the next, and $100 for subsequent bags. The food is horrible and the type you'd expect on a puddle jumper from NY to Boston. Clearly Air Canada executives are aware that Canada and the US are separate countries. This is just an attempt to gouge the consumer. Unfortunately Air Canada is the only Airline I can fly out of Montreal so I'm stuck with them. : ("
Pros: "friendly pilot"
Cons: "Delayed 25 minutes, and threatened to fly without 15 passengers due to strong headwinds and need to reduce weight. Never heard that one before."
Pros: "The plane was nice and spacious. A CA agent stationed by customs helped about five of us get to the front of the line, so we'd make our next flight."
Cons: "1. After playing 20 questions at the check-in kiosk, it was unable to print our documents. 2. So we played 20 questions again and the second machine failed to check us in. 3. The flight was delayed about an hour (due to weather, not your fault), so our connection was tight. We alerted the agent at the gate (along with several others). She didn't help at all. She just told us to go to the gate. Well, we had to go through customs, so that wasn't helpful. What we were asking is if she could alert the gate agents at the next flight that we were running as fast as we could. 4. So five of us get to the next gate as they're paging us that the doors are closing. 5. Our bags didn't make the flight, which wasn't unexpected, but it was worrisome when the agent at our final destination told us she couldn't tell where they were."
Cons: "One man wanted me to check an empty carry on bag I travel for 10 years with this high quality foldable carry on bag, it is a tight in their test cradle because of the wheels but it does fit. Even a passanger offer me is support telling the agent he was not reasonable after getting the bag in and out 4 times he still wanted me to check the bag in ? After 10 min arguments he said ok put it on the floor ! I could of put 2 of my foldable bag on the top storage if I had 2.... it was a connecting from same airline a much smaller plane which accepeted the bag . Very unpleasant ! Some people like to feel in power."
Cons: "had to pa for poor selection (the cheese "platter" ran out quickly :( )"
Cons: "Air Canada failed to transfer my bag from flight 1 to connecting flight 2. This not only happened to me but to other people traveling on the same connecting flight as well. My bag was delivered later then the promised time, it was also returned damaged. It is now almost one week since I have taken my flight and I am unable to process a claim because they have not updated my file via their Bag Tracer program. It is clear that they still have a lot of work to do to be considered a real commercial air line company"
Cons: "Boarding was slow and chaotic because of the number of passengers bringing oversize carry-on bags, presumably to try to avoid the checked-bag fee. The overhead bins filled up early, and passengers squabbled over the available space and objected when flight attendants told them they would have to gate-check their bags. The aisle was congested and blocked for long periods of time as people tried to fit their bags into the bin, and the plane left the gate more than 15 minutes late because of the slow boarding. There were about 100 people on the flight, but only about 20 at baggage claim (including at least two family groups), another indication that the checked-bag fee caused passengers to bring oversize carry-on bags. The overall rating for this flight would be significantly higher if it weren't for the boarding process."
Pros: "Nothing in particular stood out in Montreal or the flight to Boston, as better than average...meh"
Cons: "Our Swiss crew told us over the loudspeaker several times that "even if connecting we still need to get our luggage" which turned out to be false as our luggage was transferred to the Boston bound plane automatically... We were ushered out as a group to a connection security check which required electronic kiosks to be used for scanning our passports photos and fingerprints... They fraught with malfunctions then after waiting in line for s while we did the whole check all over again with s human security agent in s booth... There were only 2 security agents in the booths as well but there really needed to be several more to keep the line moving quicker... After security we walk directly out to departures but no mention of baggage claim, which was fine had we not been misinformed by Swiss initially... We ended up inquiring several times with SirCsnsda staff until it was clear Swiss had misinformed us."
Pros: "Had a great conversation wih a guy from Switzerland an it really helped to pass the time."
Cons: "I didn't like that they either started boarding too early or we waited a long time to get off the runway as it seemed we were on the plane a long time before we actually left. Also we just received our snack and our drink and as soon as we received them, a stewardess told us to all put our tables up and I do believe that it was because we were descending to land. It seemed like forever before we received our snack and then we're told we couldn't use our tables. I think they should have started the snacks earlier as it was quite a big plane and it probably would take quite a long time to serve everyone and the worst part of it all was that I had asked for a can of pop, so I had to hold my can of pop, my glass pop and try to get my snack out of the package which was not easy at all."
Cons: "I was very disappointed that the airline served absolutely no food to passengers for such a long flight. Other airlines serve meals and beverages to their passengers on trans-Atlantic flights. I doubt I will fly Air Canada again for such a flight, due to the lack of interest and care provided the passengers."
Pros: "The crew, that it all"
Cons: "The plane was clearly an older plane, there was NO on board entertainment for a 12 hr flight. The food was not good and there was no free wine - which is not normal for international"
Pros: "Spacious, leg room"
Cons: "Temperature, cold. Needs interior upgrade."
Pros: "They didnt loose my luggage this time."
Cons: "do your self a favor and find a different airline. When i got home and talked to others about my travels the said " what did you expect, i wont fly air canada" I wish i would have know before i booked my flight."
Cons: "on march 13/ 2016 booked my tickets on kayak.com so end up getting it with vayama.on july 28 missed my flight for a family raison called vayama and explained the situation they said they will help me just they need to confirm with the airlines (air canada) and they will give me new tickets.no body called me back ,called air canada said: we have ticket but you need to get it from vayama.called vayama again he said sorry about that i will let everyone know and he promise me that i will get help a.s.a.p.did't hear from them left with my wife and two kids in morocco for a week end up buying new tickets from laufthansa"
Cons: "On the way back from Quebec City to Montreal we were asked to check our carry-ons as luggage, because "there is no room' on the plane. It was an empty flight. ALL overhead compartments were empty. Both flights - Quebec to Montreal and Montreal San Francisco were late. As the result, we have to spend 1.5 hours in the baggage claim area, because "there are no baggage agents in SFO available". THAT WAS THE WHOLE REASON WE ONLY HAD CARRY-ONS! By far, one of the worst flight experience in the last 10 year."
Cons: "After waiting 30 minutes after our boarding time, I got an email on my phone saying the gate had changed. No one at the current gate knew anything about it and I went to ask but no one could be found. I asked a man sitting behind the gate, who happened to be the pilot, and he also knew nothing about it. Needless to say, the gate changed and absolutely nobody was told about it. 2 hours later, our flight finally took off, and I was thanked by the pilot for getting us to the right gate... At least he provided a little humor to the situation! Plane also wasn't cleaned, pretzels and trash all over the floor."
Pros: "The crew and their sincere attitude to be of help. Wonderful team of professionals."
Cons: "One hour delay, which was very tiring for someone who already had gone through the 9 hour flight torture from Athens. The Global Entry for US bound passengers procedure is very confusing. Maybe it would help if the steps were communicated on the US bound passengers before disembarking. First the passport process (easy) then there is this confusing process where we need to see our names in green on the screen, with some staff telling us to move on while others insist that we need to stay back and wait for our names to go green on screens that keep changing. Good idea and intentions to help clear bags, and can be improved. Overall the Montreal to DC flight (with the exception of the awful Montreal airport and the long delay) was excellent."
Pros: "I had a wonderful experience with the crew on broad. The pilot was amazing. The cabin Attendent in first class was very lovely and sweet. She was the reason for my nice experience since I had a horrible time with the gate staff."
Cons: "I had a horrible time with the gate staff. They made me check my bag at the gate even though it fits in the overhead bin. I did three flight with air canada prior to this flight with the same carryon. I didn't appreciate the ladies attitude. She said I don't care who or what class you fly so took my roller and tagged it. Then she let the guy next to me get on with his bigger roller only because he was first class. I had to upgrade myself to first class to keep my roller on me. I had things that I couldn't part from my carry on. Cost me $500 US dollar and then she said to me. What ever thrills you. Wow. I am star alliance gold with two airlines and I have never ever been treated this way ever. I will never take air canada ever again. The 1800 customer service isn't any better."
Cons: "The fact that because I was late for my flight, my reservation was cancelled. I was not given the opportunity to change my flight at all, I just lost out on the return portion of my travel. I would have been willing to pay a fee to change my return, but not given the opportunity. Had I booked directly with the airline, they would have had no problem making a change. Buyer beware!!! If you don't book directly with an airline, you may suffer the same fate as me! This was an almost $1,300 dollar learning experience. Do not use third party online booking agents! You do not have the same protections as dealing with the airlines directly."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight ended."
Cons: "The "ping" concert. Since some designer genius (thanks, Boeing!) put all the controls in the armrest, exactly where any normal human being will rest his/her elbows, the controls keep activating every time you lay your elbow in the armrest. That means, your games will cancel and restart a thousand times, your volume will keep shifting from deafening to mute, and the button calling for help from the crew keeps going "ping" all over the plane. The crew ignored the calls, surely since they know what goes on with the plane, but I wonder what would happen if somebody really needed help. In addition to that, the seats are incredibly uncomfortable, narrower than ever and hard as brick. Every time I board a new plane I wonder what can they do to make it even worse, and plane designers never cease to amaze me with new medieval tortures."
Cons: "The boarding crew did a poor job of giving direction. In spite of the fact that boarding by zone was not specified, I was reprimanded by staff for boarding when I did. I found it very disrespectful that the staff reprimanded me for their own error. When I pointed out that they had not called a zone the ground staff lied and said they had called the zone. I strongly recommend staff receive remedial customer service training. This was an incredibly negative experience - not to mention undermined the otherwise decent experience that the Air Canada flight team provided."
Pros: "Skilled pilot dealt with rough weather very well."
Cons: "if you have ever flown on a low cost airline like Ryanair or Easyjet act like you are on that flight. Bring snacks and headphones."
Modern plane with modern appointments and it was very clean.
Pros: "Very courteous staff. High quality in-flight meals."
Cons: "All great!"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Luggage was handled well. Coach seats were okay with decent space. I had read some negative reviews but our experience was satisfactory."
Cons: "Customer service could have been better but they did do their job getting us there."
Pros: "I was concerned about Royal Air Maroc’s mixed reviews, however, our direct flight from Miami to Casablanca was on time, no damage or loss of luggage, coach seats were okay, food was average, flight and crew were polite and helpful. All-in-all it was satisfactory for the price."
Cons: "The food was average - standard for coach."
Cons: "I can not get my luggage for more than 6 months"
Cons: "Checking in agent should be polite"
Pros: "The crew was NOT amazing, everyone had to walked back to the cabin to ask for water because not a single staff person would go check on us when we pushed the help button. I my self pushed it because I needed water to take my medicine and they ignored me until I walked my self to the back of the plane and asked for some water. Everyone was back there laughing having a good time while many of us were calling them over for help and they didn’t care."
Cons: "Staff doing their job would have been nice"
Pros: "From Casablanca to Accra the seat was very comfortable, and they gave us blankets, pillow, socks and eye mask (none of these provided from Barcelona to Casablanca, and the seat was smaller) Good food and tea service."
Cons: "Personal tv missing."
Cons: "We were delayed 5 hours in Casablanca without notice or explanation it was an officer who shared anonymously that the baggage handlers were on strike"
Cons: "The flight was late! Nightmare at boarding! I arrived an hour and a half late They lost my luggage I have not heard back yet"
Pros: "nothing! Very poor service"
Cons: "Have special help for large families especially with young children. Most airlines anticipate large families’ arrival and keep a golf car at the gate to help them. Your company is careless, callus. In addition i lost 3 luggages"
Pros: "Seat were comfy"
Cons: "The food could be better. Also, no tampoon/Sanitary towels for emergency menstrual period."
Pros: "Amazing cabin crew"
Cons: "Not waiting forever"
Cons: "(1) Luggage lost - not transferred in Casablanca (2) no entertainment on the flight"
Pros: "Crew was performing properly. My special meal was very delicious. Thanks"
Cons: "Clean the toilets more regularly, and manage noisy adults. I suggest adding penalties to passengers that cause disturbance for others. There was a loud dispute near my seat."
Pros: "Flights were on time, boarding was smooth and there was enough legroom."
Cons: "The selection of movies and TV-shows was comparably small."
Pros: "Gate agents and Flight Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "My son got to the kiosk and they told him the flight was boarded and he missed the flight. They offered him a ticket for 380 dollars which he did not have to leave Friday two days later. Fortunately I was on the phone and bought a ticket on line. What can be done? Why must we pay for others mistakes"
Cons: "V poor hospitality and i was treated like a prisoner during my 1 nt trnsit at casablanka airport before my flight to jfk Also I didnt receive my 2 bags at jfk airport and till now i didnt hear from them till now I wish that anyone can help find my bags. I will never book on royal ait maroc again"
Pros: "Food was better than average as airline food goes, attentive cabin crew, professional, good selection of movies, music for entertainment. New Boeing 789 Dreamliner, excellent condition/shape, clean interior."
Cons: "Poor choice of cabin music prior to take-off and post-landing. Boarding is chaotic at best - mob boarding, like sardines on buses to airplane, then long wait till getting on board and loading overhead bins. Should load aircraft from back to front and with clear defined zones! Bathrooms did degrade as the flight progressed unfortunately."
Cons: "Good service good flight"
Cons: "The fish was undercooked, still rubbery."
Cons: "The staff were rude and not helpful"
Pros: "Boarding process, check in process."
Cons: "Delayed flight, no entertainment, food same thing."
Pros: "Timely departure from Casablanca, fast boarding service."
Cons: "At the Check in in Laayoune the attendant could not register the whole of my trip with the fidelity number. The snack on board is always the same, cheese sandwich, which could be made with better bread, wrap, chiabata, etc. Very bad."
Pros: "I like the service and and the crew were very great and everything was on the time"
Cons: "I like to keep the serving like that"
Pros: "Staff All friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The communication between ground staff and customers. This has happened multiple times as I travel out of Casablanca."
Pros: "Good movie options"
Cons: "Awful food, slow service"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and professional"
Cons: "entertainment and food"
Pros: "The food and service was presented kindly."
Cons: "There were a group of Moroccan young adults (both genders) that were allowed to pass around a bottle of whiskey and became very intoxicated, loud, rude, vulgar, disturbing other travelers. This continues the entire flight (one didn't even put his seatbelt on during landing and crashed in front of his seat). I felt very unsafe as no crew member tried to talk to them. There was no sense of security or safety."
Cons: "The food is sooo bad n the crew are mean Last time I use this airline"
Pros: "timely and arrived safely in Casablanca"
Cons: "Food was terrible - bad quality bread with a slice of cheese and another starch, at least the yogurt drink was there. Please offer refills on coffee/tea"
Cons: "Old airplane. Disorganized boarding"
Pros: "Friendly helpful crew"
Cons: "The staff on check in counter very bad attitude and liars. I arrived 11 Am and they told me the check in close for this flight AT910 which supposed to fly at 12:15pm so they closed the check in before departure time by 1 hour and 15 minutes. But after givening one of the staff 200 MD the let me check in."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "How clean the airline was"
Pros: "Flight attendants very attentive and cheerful."
Cons: "Casablanca airport is utterly chaotic in terms of security lines, boarding and then getting on the plane in full sun with crowds pushing to get in."
Cons: "luggage did not come through from my connecting flight. very disappointed."
Cons: "They say they provide people with a lounge (salon) to rest in while in transit but the place has no clean toilets, and not Bligh seats to relax and be comfortable. The planes have no entertainment and I feel as though I was targeted and asked to move my seat 3 times before take off! Will not be flying Air Maroc anytime soon."
Cons: "Pain et viennoiserie glacial."
Pros: "The landing was very smooth, polite crew and on time."
Cons: "The crew was too fast."
Pros: "The in-cabin crew service was okay. The food voucher while in transit was well managed although clarity to the process must be given. All seems to be on the hush. Unless a passenger asks he/she won't get anything."
Cons: "No arrangement for strollers and no consideration for parents traveling with kids at the Yaoundé Airport. The Yaoundé airport leadership is truly lacking and customer service is mere reference. Rudeness and unnecessary bad attitude. No coordination between the in-cabin crew and ground operation for the delivery of strollers on the side of the airplane. The signage at Casablanca Mohamed V airport needs improvement. It is very confusing for transit passengers. Almost everyone was asking for directions or where to to go next. The Casablanca airport has no arrangements for diaper change for a male traveling parent. Only one bathroom on the WHOLE terminal requiring plenty of walking"
Cons: "customer service is horroble , i didnt find my luguage , nobody to talk to , very horrible company ."
Pros: "Great customer service, serve a full meal on a less than 2 hours flight, friendly service."
Pros: "We experienced strong turbulence, large number of passenger including children were scared and started screaming. Neither the crew no the capital warned us about the coming turbulence. Furthermore, after the severe turbulence we did not hear from the crew or the captain. Additionally, the lending experience was also very bad, at one time we tough he lost control over the plane. Thank you"
Cons: "Lost luggage. Low quality service. General atmosphere of lack of respect for the moroccan customers. Is this some kind of self hatred??"
Cons: "Boarding, the food and the seating capacity"
