Cons: "Improve the process for boarding people were standing there for 45 minutes to 1 hour. People there needs training"
Cons: "Singapore Airlines is so wildly overrated. The service is frequently poor, and the cabin environment dirty and old unless flying on their very latest planes. Even their A380s are now stale and musty. Not nice."
Cons: "Excellent service"
Cons: "The layover in Singapore was a nightmare with insufficient hotel accommodation, nothing but Asian food and overly officious security staff."
Pros: "personel provided excellent service"
Cons: "food was ok. A faulty entertainment system did make our flight feel longer."
Pros: "Same as my trip to Japan. Crew was great, boarding was easy, seats were pretty comfortable, food was great, and entertainment awesome. Gave socks and toothbrush amenities, along with the normal pillow and blanket."
Cons: "It felt a tad bit hot in the plane. No personal vents to adjust to one's own desire."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great entertainment system Good staff"
Cons: "Not comfortable seats"
Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."
Pros: "Spacious and comfortable bed."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great. Average at best."
Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."
Pros: "Nice and attentive crew"
Cons: "Seat in the economy class is cramped and although the movie selection is quite ok, but the lack of touchscreen is quite annoying"
Cons: "The plane was freezing - absolutely freezing. Too cold. There were not enough fluids given out. Given we could not even take water brought in the airport into the plane there needed to be regular distributions of fluids on the flight as there was on the flight from London toy Singapore. It is a long flight and being dehydrated on a plane is not a good thing."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours behind schedule"
Pros: "Movie selection was great. Food was decent. Comfort was expected"
Cons: "Our seat neighbors were annoying, but nothing the staff can do about that!"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was really hot."
Cons: "Old plane. Worst food I’ve ever had on a Singapore airlines flight. They need to give up on the seafood spaghetti. It was quite awful. Old plane so entertainment system not up to what is expected these days"
Pros: "The cabin crew was awesome.. they are for sure the super stars of the company... I wish all of them all the very best for a very bright future"
Cons: "The service of the airlines is impeccable. But the ground staff near check in were not so. I hope they were a little considerate as I was travelling for a family emergency and had to take all my stuff back as I wasn’t sure what date I would return back. I was over weight but wish they had considered a lil as had to pay an other $300 extra.."
Pros: "Great service and comfort."
Cons: "Food was bland and breakfast availability was a joke. On any flight, passengers do not want spicy or evening meals, and having a limited amount number of breakfasts available was not amusing. The crew had done 5 rows and we were 6 row from kitchen and they had run out ."
Pros: "Boarding, friendly crew"
Cons: "Very slow service, took 2 hours. Entertainment system didn't worked for first half of flight."

Cons: "Cabin was to me a little warm during initial taxi at LAX. But not overly so."
Pros: "Love the service at Singapore Air. Very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt airport was horribly slow. Also, audio jack didn't work properly. Not sure how often that's checked."
Pros: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend travelling with the airline. The A380 is a great way to travel with more space in economy. I booked seats on the upper deck where there is a smaller economy cabin. Makes you feel a bit more civilised up the top!"
Cons: "Economy class isn't great for a long haul flight but the staff make it much more bearable."
Pros: "Crew were helpful. Food was good, pillows and blankets in every seat was great. Seats a little small."

Pros: "Really recommended . Wait alittle longer but i got a free tour go around Singapore ."
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "Nothing really bad one food on return flight not great but ok."
Pros: "Check in and boarding were flawless. The flight left about one hour late. The seats in coach are getting smaller and smaller. I got an aisle seat to have a little extra room (I'm 6'1") only to get hit big time by the food cart (they did apologize). The food was plentiful, but mediocre at best. The flight attendants were working hard, but we're abrupt and tired. Overall, I have three stars, when in the past, flying SA was always a five star experience. It got me back home though. :)"
Pros: "Spacious, comfortable seat"

Cons: "The food options were not that good this time."
Pros: "Not-so-full flight meant we could move about and choose more comfortable seats."
Cons: "TV unit didn’t work, lucky me. They tried two times to restart and reboot but to no avail. The attendant said my choices were to not watch or move to an empty seat. I chose to sit next to my wife."
Pros: "Looks that it will depart on time"
Cons: "Middle seat"
Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Pros: "The check-in for my first flight was great in Philadelphia."
Cons: "There are no lounges in Philadelphia that accepted my Priority Pass. Your economy passengers deserve options, which I have paid for. Movie options were not as good as expected."
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Cons: "too hot called groups too fast for boarding"
Pros: "Very impressed with the service. Very friendly staff"
Cons: "My entertainment unit on the Perth Doha leg never worked even after several resets"
Pros: "Nothing about American Airlines Never ever to travel with it again"
Cons: "Passengers service bad Air hostesses just rude I Don’t even know why someone wants to work When they can’t even smile There were few seats were empty but they were offered to fellow passengers who happens to be different colors Person Then me America airline lost my family business for ever"
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."
Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."
Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "The airplane seats in economy were comfortable for the very long flights I took with Qatar Airlines. The seats had enough room between the back of the other seat. The seat reclined to a comfortable position. The seat back provided a built in head rest. The TV's in the seats were the largest I have ever seen on a flight in economy. The staff were helpful and great. The food and drinks provided were decent!"
Cons: "No internet"
Cons: "Very old flight"
Pros: "service, food and cleanness"
Pros: "crew servious and food quality."
Cons: "not so many Hollywood movie choices."
Pros: "It was much better flight then JFK-Doha, crew was fast and efficient."
Cons: "Dirty washrooms."
Pros: "Fantastic. Crew was the best part! Very accommodating and nice. Looking forward to my next flight with them."
Pros: "I havn't flown a lot of international flights, but Qatar Airways is now my favorite"
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Pros: "Check-in was a breeze; considering this being an internationaly travel, baggage check-in process was fast and easy. Was in and out in about 5 minutes. Goodie bag was a good idea; the goodie bag contains an eye mask, mini tooth brush, paste, hand cream, etc. These all were great idea and definitely helpful. However this is ruined by the tooth paste. It was a tiny tooth paste, fair enough but the opening is sealed tight w/o a way to easily pry open. This was a total bad idea of packaging. Flight tips were also good idea and informational."
Cons: "Atlanta to Doha was about 14 hours flight. The seats were cramped and narrow (no side support) Seat cushion has been stripped down to bare minimum, so effectively you may not feel much of a cushion. Cramped legroom Seats felt like junk and I had started having leg cramps after few hours. This so disappointing for a premier airline like Qatar. Overall a very uncomfortable ride."
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "My husband and I recently traveled from New York to Bali Indonesia for our honeymoon. We were upgraded to Business for all four of our flight segments. The flight attendants were incredibly friendly and courteous and were actually surprised when we only ordered one drink and one meal at a time! The food was phenomenal, especially for an aircraft meal, and no matter what I was in the mood for, they had it."
Cons: "Boarding in New York was not organized. Those traveling with small children or needing assistance were not boarded first, nor were Business and Economy boarding from separate jetways."
Pros: "Excellent crew who were warm and attentive. Wide range of entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. No western option despite it being a London bound flight."
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Cons: "Crew members were not concerned. Service was not proper and on time."
Pros: "Qatar is quite possibly the best airline in the world, especially on its long haul flights. It is heads above the other two major Persian Gulf airlines. All the employees with whom I dealt were excellent and customer-oriented. The planes between Doha and London were new, had more space than older planes and had an excellent selection of movies and TV shows. I ordered special meals on all the flights, and I was very satisfied. I have been a fan of Qatar Airways since I flew it to Australia in 2011. It continues to do a superb job, even in Economy."
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Cons: "no one came to help even after asking for assistance"
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Pros: "Another B787. Had empty seats next to me."
Cons: "No menus handed out by the crew and little explanation of what the meal was beyond beef and rice or chicken and potato. For some reason they only serve a snack instead of a second meal on this flight."
Pros: "Incredible staff, fast boarding, great entertainment center."
Cons: "Breakfast frittata was like rubber."
Cons: "Not enough check in desks operating - very long wait"
Cons: "No upgrades. Worst flight."
Cons: "Check in crew in Lahore ganged up against me and wanted to extort £200 for taking me laptop on board along with my hand carry. No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport. I had no cover as they threatened to if load my luggage and not let me fly home. Not a 5 start airline from any angle. Will never use Qatar again!!! This was my first and last flight with them."
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and helpful, the flight left on time and even arrived early"
Cons: "Seat 10H, the transition from coach to business class could be designed a little better so the service carts don't hit the seat occupant when they move between cabins"
Cons: "No good movies on the flight. The crew hardly interacts. The food sucks and they served sausage to me even though I was a vegetarian and they said they didn't have anything else. The headrest kept falling off ."
Cons: "The crew has no control over passengers. Specifically, it is the cabin supervisors responsibility to maintain order on the flight. Everyone before boarding, during boarding and during the flight kept sitting in incorrect seats, no boarding passes checked. Felt like a zoo on the airline. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "The seats were not the best and it would have been nice to have a meal other than just a small breakfast."
Pros: "The crew were awesome"
Cons: "The film choice was poor"
Pros: "The ecperience"
Cons: "Food was poor"
Cons: "Not much food to eat."
Pros: "I really liked the leg spacing. It was very comfortable to stretch my legs. Overall it was good. Thank you :)"
Cons: "I felt a little bit more of the nibbles could be included in the 8+ hours flight. Besides that everything was comfortable. Also, the entertainment options can be better."
Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety."
Pros: "I had plenty of space"
Cons: "There should be more vegetarian options available. Crew were very slow in responding to my requests."
Pros: "Modern spacious plane, on-board experience all fine. Flat beds in Bysiness are great."
Cons: "Boarding is shambolic - no signs, no announcements, first class passengers get herded into a large pen with the others , which leads to no reliable priority boarding. Flight was delayed 25 minutes (advised by kayak not Emirates); no acknowledgement of it - departure boards never reflected it, no announcement."
Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."
Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."
Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"
Pros: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was awful the only option for me was raw vegetables in order to have vegetarian and gluten free... It was carrot, cucumber and celery sticks and some fruit. I had the same meal twice it was very sad meal for 17.5 hrs with no snacks offered either. My partner and another man were forgotten as the meal rounds were being done. The crew seemed a little disorganised. The adverts on the entertainment were annoying."
Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."
Pros: "Consistently good service from emirates crew"
Cons: "Too much meat in the dining options Boarding was slow"
Cons: "Food was not awful and most item not available in Fist Suites"
Pros: "Dinner meal. Seats"
Cons: "Bed, breakfast"
Pros: "I liked that all the families were in a separate area on the plane. Food and drinks on offer good, baggage allowance good and the leg room was good."
Cons: "The delay to get on the flight, hard with a toddler."
Pros: "everything was perfect i really enjoy my flight with Emirates i recommend everyone to fly with Emirates best experience ever"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class. Very nice"
Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."
Pros: "Wasn't full so there was space to street a bit. Stewardesses were polite and attentive - checking throughout whether drinks were required (on other flights they've disappeared between food services). Good selection of films."
Cons: "Although the good was actually alright in this flight, I don't like the fact that Emirates no longer do a vegetarian meal - I have to have a vegan meal instead, which often means things are just left off (not replaced) that I could actually eat, like cheese and biscuits, or a croissant."
Pros: "i not sure is emirate crew call switch working or not but many time i push that button but no one reply"
Cons: "crew service"
Cons: "Late boarding. Thought I was flying emirates and turned out to be Qantas. Seats not as comfy. They lost my luggage. Took 2 days to get it back."
Pros: "Facilities excellent. Staff not quite so attentive on this leg of the trip."
Cons: "Just left to it. Not much fuss made."
Pros: "Not much. The crew were bright and breezy. Ish."
Cons: "Emirates has applied EasyJet seat ramming techniques to its A380 business Class product. As a result even the spacious upper deck of an A380 feels cramped. The seat width in business Class is the same as economy so lying on your side to sleep is an impossibility for all but the diminutive or children. It’s hard to justify 4-5 times the economy fare to sit in such cramped ‘pile em high, sell em cheap’ seats. Breakfast served just before landing at LGW was honestly the most revolting meal I’ve ever been served onboard an aircraft, and I’ve flown Monarch. Less scrambled egg than puréed egg slops with gristly undercooked chicken sausages. Ryanair would blush at serving up such lousy fare. Emirates are paring back the ‘overheads’ in business Class and its starting to show. Cheapening the product (in every sense) might work for some but if I’m going to stump up thousands I think I’ll choose an airline that treats me less like self loading cargo in future."
Pros: "Great legroom in Economy seats on A380 DXB-LGW Good inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Inflight service perfunctory Food of adequate standard Both used to be much better on Emirates"
Pros: "Great legroom, quiet plane, seat free next to me"
Cons: "Not much"

Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"
Cons: "Chinese passengers passing gas!"
Pros: "Great service all round and lovely staff on board! A delight to fly."
Cons: "The boarding process could be more organized and more smoothly."
Pros: "Everything else was good besides the below content."
Cons: "The customer service. After the meals came I pressed my button for assistance and was not attended to at all, there was over an hr before our flight was due to land. I didn't want to move from my seat as the person beside looked busy at work and I didn't know where I would go because I couldn't see any flight attendants anywhere."
Pros: "The plane was wonderful. Even in Economy, the seats were very comfortable with lots of room, both leg and seat. It felt like I was in Business Class of any other airline I've been on."
Cons: "My flight had a luggage limit of 30kg, which sounds good, until you find you pay per kilo, not per piece when you're over."
Pros: "First time flying in double decker plon"
Cons: "I would have been happy to receive points for travel on star alliance"
Pros: "more leg room compare with other carriers, a variety of meals to choose from for special needed people (need to pre book online)"
Cons: "can't find anything to complain with"
Pros: "Generally good standard, nothing to sit about but there was a selection of recent and older films and TV, OK food and fairly comfortable seats."
Cons: "While the food was ok, there were some odd omissions from the vegetarian meals that sometimes made them seem smaller or worse value compared to the non-veggie options. Still better than I've had on some other airlines though."
Cons: "crappy entertainment screens food was a bit blah (stale bread products, slimy fruit)"
Pros: "So comfy... Great service. Wished the flight was longer b"
Pros: "Emirates are always very good in every department, unfortunately for the third trip in succession on the outward journey they ran out of the main dish on the dinner menu."
Pros: "La amabilidad de la tripulación, que sí el menú es completamente vegetariano. No como otras aerolíneas que te ponen manteca, leche para el café..."
Cons: "Todas las veces me cae muy, pero muy mal. Cuando llegó el momento del té o café, me dieron sal en vez de edulcorante. Demasiado condimento. No es comida para un vuelo, es difícil de digerir. Hasta produce síntomas de indigestión."
Pros: "Economy seats still comfortable"
Pros: "Amenities and food, customer service."

Cons: "I checked in online, printed the boarding passes as I know japan probably isn’t ready for phone apps for checking in. When I went to the counter, despite being the one holding all the documents (and having organized the whole travel itinerary, the staff only spoke to my husband (Whi hadn’t a clue about the journey) in Japanese. They proceeded to check us in on their computer and insisted that we use their paperwork, not mine. What a farce. What a waste of paper and my time."

Pros: "Always consistently good.."

Cons: "Missed connection due to late arrival. CP switched us to AC. 7 hour layover"
Pros: "The flight attendants were pleasant and so was the flight."
Cons: "The food, I don't eat meat and would like some other options. For such a long flight there should definitely be more leg room and agility to recline"
Cons: "To cold, no sleep,lake of oxygen,bag very dirty"
Pros: "Was in premium economy from Hong Kong to London. Fairly comfortable seats. Managed to sleep about 7 hours. Food was decent."
Cons: "Crew appear disinterested in the service."
Cons: "old plane"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and courteous throughout. Food was not bad, but not excellent either, just airline food."
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat chaotic, with people queuing up early and no assigned groups. Seems to be the norm for Cathay unfortunately."
Pros: "Airline staff were all helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The tv had decent selection. Crew were nice. Priced good"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic, after standing in line then they call for other rows and my place in line didn't matter it was a free for all rushing to get in line. No water.....they took my water and have high blood pressure so need water and they don't give enough. Food is mediocre"
Pros: "The attitude of the staff was very good so also the service . Food was OK ; could be better within the cost parameters ."
Cons: "There wasn't enough choice of entertainment . The snacks offered were good but the refill of exhausted items was not there . Possibly this could be improved ."
Pros: "Route and travel time. The food taste good."
Cons: "Bathrooms need to be cleaned in between flights; meal didn't have any condiments included ; they don't provide a toiletry bag with basics of toothbrush and socks; airplane needs to be CLEANED.. we found dental floss and empty containers inside the seat pocket."
Cons: "Not being able to select seats online prior to traveling"
Pros: "Despite no preferred aisle seat and a last minute seat swap, the flight was comfortable enough to get some sleep. Enough space and a good temperature."
Cons: "An eye mask would help block the constantly flashing screens of the surrounding seats. Staff almost made an effort to meet a couple of simple requests but were obviously busy with other priorities. Food wasn't bad."
Cons: "Same reason provided for Sydney to Hong Kong flight"
Pros: "the staff very friendly and helpfull and always there to answer questions they handle some nasty lady in front of us very politely and settle the situation"
Cons: "the seats to close and tigh feel like sardines in a can"
Cons: "Veg meal and breakfast quality was not good. Delhi to hong Kong and from there to LA. Crew member service was not good for economy class."
Cons: "bring back Me Before You!"
Pros: "I would like most of the employees of Cathay Pacific works in your company, they are very nice and also very kind to treat customers and kindly help us to solve problems during our traveling. I really appreciated. and I can say nothing but many thanks to all of Cathay Pacific employees. Ying Tao, SUN"
Cons: "Process needs inprovement. Had to wait 1 hour for my bag at SFO. 2/3 of bags showed up within 15 min. Nobody seemed to know what's going on. Business class was relatively empty, yet the airline did not make any offer for upgrade to business, at flight time. So many other airlines do it the days. Food average at best. Prefer more quality food, even if i have to pay extra"
Pros: "The food was tasty and plentiful and the crew were nice."
Cons: "This was a miserable flight in the smallest seats imaginable. I'm 6'1" and typically flights are tolerable - this was misery making."
Cons: "Economy's seats a bit tightly packed in. Food was kind of Asian based and no choices for snacks but the Asian type nuts/pretzels that tastes wired"
Pros: "-Staff were incredibly attentive and gracious at every step. Could not ask for more from them. The flight attendants were also really conscientious but also discrete about making sure that things were comfortable to passengers, for example making sure that windows were closed most of the time and lights were down so that people could sleep in between meals, and moving someone that was sick to a more comfortable and private seat, both for the sake of the sick individual and for the comfort of the people that had initially been sitting around them. -The complementary movie options were great and really helped pass the time on the 24+hr flight from NYC to Western Australia. -1 free large checked bag, which was very nice. -I think the complementary food and snacks were really yummy and generous, for airline food. I very much enjoyed the meals and snacks. Also, the complementary wine was a nice treat and tasted surprisingly good. -The complementary pillows and blankets were nice, warm, and soft. -The flights were on time, much better than American airlines that I've flown on. -The bathrooms were cleaned regularly throughout the flight and were much cleaner and nicer smelling than other airlines that I've been on."
Cons: "The only thing thing that could really be improved upon (which is not as much the airline's fault as the plane manufacturer's fault) is that the economy seats and cabin layout could be more comfortable for long flights. I understand how hard it must be to design a plane that fits that many people and that's comfortable for 24+hrs of flying, but a few improvements could relatively easily be made I think, which would improve the experience dramatically: -If the seats were softer (and perhaps more ergonomically designed with an average person's shape in mind) it would make a world of difference, I think. -Being able to put the arm up on the wall side of the window seat would make it much more comfortable. -Padding on the arms would also help. -Of course more leg space and wider seats would make a world of difference, but I know that is tough to do since space is limited."
Pros: "Overall, excellent service for its Marco Polo club member! I paid USD $100 to join the club. And it is much better than my experience with EVA (diamond member, 4 yrs) and United (gold member)."
Cons: "Just join its Marco Polo club and see for yourself."
Pros: "The cabin service was just excellent and I felt very comfortable throughout the whole journey."
Pros: "There wasnt much to like about the flight except that we didnt end up dead."
Cons: "Where do you start? Boarding process made no sense so i wont even try to explain it. Just trust me. Once we got on the plane they wouldnt let me plug into the usb port while we were on the ground. Food Service was terrible. They woke me up (minutes after id fallen asleep) for both food service. First time i thought was accident. Second time i asked them not to wake me up and they said i have to get a do not disturb sticker (why wasnt i just given one before so i could make the decision to use it or not on my own?) Also the food was terrible. I dont expect much from airline food but i can say ive had acceptable meals on other airlines (emirates and lufthansa). The food was not what i expected for one of the highest rated airlines. The flight attendant had me put the seat up during food service so the lady behind me could eat. Wtf?? Never had to do that on another airline. When i was not sleeping they rarely came down the isles with water or juice trays. (I saw it once toward the end of the flight)...and trust me i didnt miss it because i was sleeping. When i did get water i had to beg for ice as well."
Pros: "I was fortunate the person in front didn’t lean back"
Cons: "On Swiss website I added Rehe preference for a lactose free meal — but none were on the plane. The economy seats are close enough together I needed to hold my book to the side to read."
Cons: "horrible dry croissant for breakfast"
Pros: "The meals were awesome, flight great!"
Pros: "Officers in the airport are rude and offensive, racial discrimination."
Cons: "Change their employees, arrogant, not professional"
Pros: "We flew Business Class. The crew was professional and attentive. The food was definitely a nice cut above."
Cons: "Nothing that I can offer. If I needed to make another trip anywhere ANZ flies, they would be my first choice every time."
Cons: "The service could have been so much better. Food was not offered according to seating arrangements and so meal choices were not enough"
Pros: "Loved the crew from Zurich to sf. Amazing service"
Pros: "Crew was very courteous and helpful"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Leg room always an issue. Crew really great."
Cons: "Gluten free option"
Cons: "service was least friendly at this part of my flight"
Pros: "Friendly agents . Speak very good English. Swiss airlines serves breakfast croissants and beverages for a short flight without a charge"
Cons: "The airline fix the booking problem because my trip was from Zurich to Brussels to Washington DC to Austin and went I print my boarding passes only show to Brussels. The booking agent didn’t complete all the way in the computer. I am thankful that I had my original paper and Swiss airlines fix it"
Cons: "I had a carry-on sized bag which would have fit in the overhead compartment. I was told that it would not fit the Swiss Air compartment, thus was forced to check it at the gate. I expressed my concern that it would get lost (thus the reason I never opt to check bags) and was assured "They are very efficient in Zurich." When we arrived in Madrid, my bag was not at the carousel. I was told at Customer Service that it was on another flight, but that they could deliver it to my Airbnb between 4-7 pm. I had to wait there instead of enjoying my vacation to wait for my bag. The bag did not arrive until 10:30 pm. I did not have my clothes or belongings with me all day. Swiss Air in particular needs to update their overhead compartment regulations, as my bag definitely would have fit there, and could have avoided this entire situations."
Pros: "On time, friendly and incredibly efficient. Runs just like trains, just at a higher elevation!"
Cons: "For the home of Emmentaler I expected a bit more taste from the cheese sandwich."
Pros: "Crew was great. Ice cream was fun. Swiss chocolate was a nice surprise!"
Cons: "Short flight with no entertainment, no means to charge devices."
Cons: "first baggage should be free.....as people travel with 15-20kg hand luggage"
Cons: "That it wasn’t a flight to Denver"
Pros: "The view out the window."
Cons: "Delayed, no leg room. No refeshments."
Cons: "Kayak sold me a “lite” ticket on Swiss, but never mentioned that it didn’t include baggage. Even though Swiss is Star Alliance they didng count my Star Alliance Gold status for free bags and didn’t offer an upgrade. Zurich was incredibly hot and the airport didn’t have air conditoning anywhere. The boarding was worse than Ryan Air. The plane was okd and super uncomfortable. staff was rude and not at all helpful. Swiss is definitely a budget air line!!!!"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Economy seats in business. Also baby strollers took ages to come out at Heathrow, should have come to the door, but instead came at baggage claim about half an hour after our baggage, so pretty poor service in that aspect"
Pros: "Chocolate is a nice touch. Snacks (sandwich) was actually good."
Cons: "Seating upholstery needs to be replaced. Faux leather upholstery has cracks. The seat next to mine kept coming off."
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: "Our flight on Swiss was excellent. On time, courteous crew, and loved the morning Croisant and the chocolate. As my wife and I are both retired flight attendants with TWA and American, we tend to notice customer service at all levels of an airline’s operation. Both our flight out of LHR to GVA and our return were smooth as can be. Nice job, Swiss!"
Cons: "French unions"
Cons: "Boarding started 20 mins late, once on board was moved to accommodate a family to sit together. No objection to them sitting together but how is it possible that they’re in that situation to begin with. Flight was overbooked so crew offering cash to delay for a later flight, which on a Sunday evening is an unappetising proposect"
Cons: "I couldn’t take it. To travel to pass through Canada you need a Visa"
Pros: "Great service & lots of room to sleep"
Pros: "I fell asleep during the meal service and there was not a vegetarian option left over but the crew was SUPER and brought me some other snacks and made my day. Thanks!"
Pros: "There was water to drink"
Cons: "Plane felt like a 1990 air France flight. Cabin dated. The least amount of room I can remember on a plane. When sitting upright and the person in front reclined, i looked at their head and if I crossed my arms, it would touch the seat in front. Could not pick up pillow that dropped on the floor, could not bend around the seat in front. Very hard to get out to use the toilet. Felt very claustrophobic."
Cons: "The headset outlet is still the old one, so you can't use your own ."
Pros: "on time and got us there on time."
Cons: "untrained staff waking people up no flexibility with ordering GF dinner late"
Pros: "Service was great with staff being very professional Flights were on time and entertainment selections were good."
Pros: "Fast journey despite a short delay it arrived on time."
Cons: "Felt a bit hectic on the plane, possibly due to other passengers being slow to board."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Seats, food , entertainment."
Cons: "Very tight seating in economy for a transcontinental flight"
Pros: "The Swiss airline bit was about an hour late. Weather etc. But such things happen. The flight itself was fine. They even served food and a beer."
Cons: "The queues at Heathrow for passport control were long. The non-EU q was awful. Luckily the tube was running all night on those lines we needed."
Pros: "Traveling with 3 kids, Swiss kept our seats the same, had our special meals sorted, crew was kind and courteous. Entertainment for everyone."
Cons: "Overnight flight lights too bright, economy seats very narrow (and that's all we ever fly), it was extremely difficult to sleep."
Cons: "Had 1 day for quick trip to London. Two hours through security In Geneva and 4 hours late arrival on Swiss at LHR. I can tell you this, the Geneva Airport and Swiss DO NOT run like Swiss Watches. They both get F's."
Cons: "You charge the ticket and my reservation wasn't there!!"
Cons: "It wasn't Swiss//"
Cons: "Seat was terrible g43 have no room for your leg. Seats are to small. Huge man next to me was sitting on 1.5 seat...."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "My luggage being lost both from Toronto to Zurich and from Zurich to Toronto. Air Canada took nearly 4 days to get my baggage to me in Toronto, as a result of which I was unable to attend a funeral in Chicago. I was lied to over and over by air Canada. The entire experience was horrible."
Cons: "Even one member of the crew was not very nice with my young daughters."
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed, everything else about it was great! Newer, more comfortable seating than the plane from the US to Europe, excellent food and service, no complaints about the in-air experience."
Cons: "The flight was delayed most likely because of inefficiencies in the passport check / boarding process, some people got confused, waited in the boarding line, then had to go back in queue in the passport check line. Last person walked into the plane 10 min after the scheduled departure time, as a result the airport delayed our departure by 50 more minutes."
Cons: "Same comments as above."
Pros: "On time, efficient, good service, professional"
