Pros: "Great smooth flight, crew were friendly and many movies and shoes to choose from."
Cons: "Seats are tight and not much leg room for the unfortunate ones who fly Economy class. Food was ok."

Pros: "Never got on the plane due to weather restrictions in the connecting flight prior to this flight. Called SWISS customer service on a Russian line, were told to get a paper from another Russian airport that no flights were leaving the city. Did that. when arrived to Moscow no SWISS customer representatives were at the stations and had to end up buying a completely new ticket to get home."
Cons: "Have customer service representative available at the airport 24/7 knowing that some people arrive from all parts of the country."

Pros: "The in flight service was fantastic. The attendants were friendly and always smiling. The pilots flew the plane with Swiss precision. I had an economy ticket and they fed us twice and had at least six beverage passes to keep you hydrated. A blanket, pillow and ear buds were provided as part of the seat. Norwegian Air does not even cover a glass of water. They are pathetic. We will travel with Swiss Air again."
Cons: "Internet service is invoiced by the megabyte and not the flight. For flights of this duration, a lump sum is a better idea."

Pros: "Flight is conformable.. Crew was fine."
Cons: "they did not put our special meal request for the 1st leg of our journey .. it was only 2.5 hours flight.. so its okay,.. but generally not a good thing...experience at the Zurich airport was not good. They checked our passports 3 times before we got to our gate. Swiss airlines should account for these things when they give options for the connections. we had about and hour and half layover and did not even have time to have coffee or anything before a 9+ hour flight. We just ran from one flight to another and barely made to our flight.."

Pros: "Service was great, friendly and courteous crew, smooth take off and touch down, meal was the best I've had traveling. Very long tiring flight, good hospitality is always appreciated."
Cons: "There was a short delay on take off but we arrived on time. The only problem that I encountered half way into a long tiring flight, I lost the volume on the entertainment system. The stewardess tried to reset it but it didn't work. I was asked to change seats but it was too much of a hassle. Was a bit disappointed. Not there fault."

Cons: "Everything was ok except that confusion we had while ticketing. Although we have been assigned on on carrier the flight was operated by a different one, which was not cleared in the purchase paper."

Pros: "Same as above!"

Pros: "Entertainment was excellent and they made it a very comfortable flight."

Pros: "zurich a great airport."
Cons: "cheese roll"

Cons: "On my return journey I was told at check in that there were delays that would mean missing my onward journey from Zurich. I was then rerouted through Istanbul with the promise that I would be well compensated for my troubles. I was told that I would receive a certain amount for every hour I was delayed from my original arrival at end destination. Well I arrived 8 or more hours after I had originally expected (and the reason I booked with Swiss Air was because of the timing and the apparent luxury of the flight). Once I got back home and tried to pursue this amazing compensation I received some of the worst customer service ever and received 0 compensation for the experience. Very disappointed and will never fly swiss airlines again."

Cons: "No me gusto . porque quando compre las pasajes con ustedes por la pagina me decia q estaba incluydo 1 maleta de 23 kg y otra de mano 8 kg. por el precio total pagado y cuando llegue ñas mañetas no estavam incluydas y tuve que pagalas. Yo ley las condiciones de mi pasaje y me daba exactamente esto que tenia derecho a las maletas. Grande falla de ustedes. ya no comprare mas con su compania K"

Cons: "It was good"

Cons: "Terrible service. Crew was unfriendly and unhelpful. There seems to be an element of arrogance when flying with this airlines."

"I choose Lufthansa cause it’s a good airline with great quality but this one was soo old and poor. Food was terrible. Blankets and pillows very old, looked like they were like used. The chairs were soo uncomfortable"

Pros: "Space, seats, movies."
Cons: "I was on a seat at the end, after my seat, the stewardess had their closet and they kept hitting (very strongly) the back of my seat with the door, all the time. They woke me up several times. So not good."

Pros: "Salmon dinner was the best dish Lufthansa ever served"

Cons: "Delay for both leg trip."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "See my earlier remarks"

Cons: "My luggage did not make it"

Cons: "Los Angeles to Frankfurt on an A380 was great. Flight to Tel Aviv was good. But trying to navigate around Frankfurt was very difficult."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, the food was surprisingly delicious and despite weather conditions being rough and causing significant turbulence the pilot handled it well and landed so smoothly I could honestly barely tell we had landed!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty comfortable for economy seats but still could have been a bit more comfortable. The standard leg room could be increased as well as overhead storage"

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "service, on time,efficient boarding, no hassles"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Gate changed ast minute so we had to walk a long way to get to it with 3 kids. Airplane with no entertainment at all. Also the worst was getting to Beirut without 2 of our bags. We got one of them 1 day later and the second 5 days after. When we got the second bag few of our things were gone."

Cons: "Unfortunately the flight was delayed for 6 hours so we had hard time at Boryspil to book another flights to Los Angeles. After talking to 4 different people at cashier booths for an hour, we finely got tickets with Austrian lines to our destination city. I wish that Borispol Airport team could be more prepared(provide more customer service personal) to solve the problems such as a flight delay in order to serve better the passengers in stressful situations."

Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment were fine"
Cons: "Notoriously, on several flights I have recently taken, my economy seats do not recline at all. On long distance flights this is very uncomfortable! And on this flight from Frankfurt to NYC, my bag was lost, making a claim at the Lufthansa baggage dept took a very long time and the clerk said little, explained nothing and seemed annoyed with my questions."

Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Cons: "Delayed a bit"

Cons: "Food on flight Detroit - Frankfurt was terrible."

Pros: "The Lufthansa flight from Charlotte to Munich and then toMumbai was excellent. Punctual, Food and the Service was good.the"
Cons: "The Air India did not transferred my luggage when I reached there midnight. The Air India Ticket counter opened at 2:30 AM only then they booked my luggage to Bangalore. The luggage was handled very poorly and they broke my Golf Carrier which I bought for $350 in September of 2016. The Airlines wanted to settle for $15 compensation."

Pros: "Everything was great overall. Flight wasn’t full, so I had some nice extra space for the long flight."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for two hours before take-off due to snow and ice. The flight itself was fine. Deplaning in Shanghai sucks. Economy class had to wait inside the plane while business class was let out and shuttled first because the plane parked out away from building and we had to walk down steep stairs and then ride a shuttle bus to the building."

Pros: "Slept like a baby with no interruptions."

Pros: "Excellent staff and organized service. Entertainment syst m standard but worked well without problems."
Cons: "Food was just OK"

Pros: "Comfortable and clean planes. Flight was on time. Free drink!"

Pros: "Excellent service by the staff"

Pros: "For a direct flight between the N.E. and Frankfurt, it is one of the best."
Cons: "As with all flights, I wish there was more room. It is tough for a 6 ft 2 inch person. I can't imagine being taller or heavier than I am and what it must be like."

Cons: "Due to the weather and overbooking, they were not able to provide us with a flight for the same day. So we had to take a 4 hour train, which was also overbooked. We ended up standing up for 4 hours in a crowded train"

Pros: "The crew was spectacular. They had 20 crew members."
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive at our final destination of Madrid. It was awful. Also, after many passengers, including us, had fallen asleep, they woke us to put our seat backs up so the people behind us could put their tray tables down."

Cons: "My video player had substantially less options than the rest of my aisle. The food was below average."

Pros: "The sandwich was ok. Flight attendant was just fine as well."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for no apparent or known reason. Took forever to board and then we missed our connecting flight. I have no need to fly Luthansa again. Get what you pay for with bottom of the barrel airlines I guess."

Pros: "The crew was super nice the flight was great no turbulence"
Cons: "Bad selection of food felt really sick after wards"

Pros: "Smiles from the male and female stewards. Being gracious to customers and treating them with respect....keeping us from getting bored"
Cons: "the Airbus was much more crowded than the Boeing (777) we flew over on and run by United. When food/trash was being passed, it was tough for passengers coming from the rest room to get back to their seat."

Pros: "It was my daughter's 16th birthday and one of the spunky crew members helped us to create a little celebration. That was very memorable! Otherwise the flight was late (which was OK, the captain kindly kept us informed), but the plane was clean and quiet. The bathrooms on the lower level provided a space to stretch, but as always, they get pretty dirty on a long-haul flight. Price was quite good. I always feel the flights originating from Europe are nicer than those originating in the US."
Cons: "The food was stuck in the past, roll, white cheese, white cake with sugary fruit, somewhat wilted small salad and a pretty greasy chicken dish with polenta and by that point, stewed veggies. I am not accustomed to eating like that and was disappointed (though hungry!). Not a whole lot of room in my seat, I'm 5'6" and slim, but at least the seats recline and glide forward a bit and the head rest bends to catch your head IF you can nod off. I appreciate the civility that still exists under stressful circumstances."

Pros: "Lufthansa Flight from Cape Town to Munich canceled due to mechanical problems. Flight rebooked with great difficulty and confusion by Lufthansa. Condor and United picked up the pieces and got us home."
Cons: "We didn't like the total confusion and errors made by Lufthansa staff during the rebooking process after the flight cancellation."

Pros: "crew members are great availability of food choice availability of entertainment"
Cons: "seats are uncomfortable the seating has no cushioning in it, food can be better"

Cons: "The airplane was extremely cold and the flight staff was rude"

Cons: "The seats recline too much! The passenger in front of me almost immediately reclined her chair right into my face, making an irritable experience on a long flight for me. That is the only flaw in your service in my experience."

Pros: "Food was great!"
Cons: "Lackluster movie selection, internet was a rip off and barely worked."

Pros: "Tremendous selection of movie entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit confusing"

Pros: "Clean modern aircraft. Attentive and friendly service. Decent snack."

Pros: "Had one passenger in a wheelchair and we had great help!"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "In seat entertainment, better food."

Pros: "Latest movies few included"
Cons: "The space is so small. For 11plus hours my body could not move. I never had knee problem but they were so sore. My feet and body got extremely tight mid way in the flight. This is my first and last flight in your airlines."

Pros: "Very nice staff."
Cons: "Boarding could has been smoother."

Pros: "Good service, free beer and great in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Not friendliest crew"

Pros: "Crew was excellent, seats comfortable enough, tons of in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and we nearly didn't get seats - I know this happens but it's especially aggravating and stressful for big international flights, and not worth putting your customers through the worry, IMO. We shouldn't need to worry about whether or not well get on the flight (and I'm sure some folks didn't...) when we paid so much for the tickets."

Pros: "I liked the service on the long flight. Hot towels after a meal, wow! I would choose Lufthansa if we had an over sea flight again."
Cons: "I wish I could have slept better. Seats are small to sleep in."

Pros: "Smooth and on-time."

Pros: "Everything was top notch… Wi-Fi, food, entertainment, comfort"

"Never booked this flight"

Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"

Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"

Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."

Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"

Pros: "Crew good and seat OK but not exceptional for business class"
Cons: "Food was average - main course could have been better. Range of movies ok but not great"

Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"

Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"

Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."

Pros: "Newer plane, crew was amazing, seats were adjustable"

Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "No overbooking next time!"

Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."

Pros: "Everything was smooth and effortless."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything."

Pros: "Cabin facilities"
Cons: "They didn’t bring one of my bags"

Cons: "Lost a single baggage item, a car seat. Critical for us to leave the airport, and delayed us for over an hour upon arrival. Gave us a loaner car seat that barely fit our child."

Pros: "The earphones for out two seats only worked intermittently, but the Purser, Lee-Ann handled it professionally and pleasantly. That was the only disappointment in an otherwise pleasant flight"
Cons: "The earphones could have worked!"

Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"

Cons: "There were several flight delays and gates were changes a few times."

Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."

Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"

Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."

Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."

Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."

Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."

Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"

Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."

Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."

Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."

Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."

Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."

Pros: "Very friendly service!"

Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."

Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"

Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"

Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."

Pros: "Good multi media access and content"

Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."

Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"

Pros: "Wonderful"

Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"

Cons: "seats on Jet air flight are very uncomfortable"

Pros: "I’m pleasantly surprised that this ancient plane made it across the Atlantic"
Cons: "Broken entertainment system, no charging ports, broken window screens, broken reading lights, no AC. Plane was too old to be in service"

Cons: "Extremely poor timing and communication. Departed over 2hr late and missed landing to the correct airport by 10 mins and so had to divert to an airport an hour away with poor coordination"

Pros: "Attentive crew, plenty to drink"
Cons: "Not crazy about the seat arrangement on this plane"

Pros: "Great crew and flight"

Pros: "Nothing, total stress making us re-check our baggage"
Cons: "British AIrways could have checked our bags through from Denver to Paris....after all it was British Airways to British Airways, but they made us check only to London, retrieve bags carry them to another terminal recheck them for what Simon the BA ticket writer was nothing but pure error by British"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane, the arrival time and the service"

Pros: "I like that we were on time for departure"
Cons: "The speed boarding it was confusing,no one was there in the que until they called you to board then People starting to come up from the que that was already there. Speedy boarding should be exactly that."

Pros: "Friendly staff that helped me change seat after I landed in a middle seat."
Cons: "Food is bad. Did not like it one bit. Entertainment too limited, expected more from BA (particularly in the music area). Feels more.like a budget airline! Maybe London airport problem, but both flights from London (at the start of holiday and at the end) were delayed. Nearly missed my connecting flight to NZ. Overall: Resent experience with BA and London Heathrow airport was to the extend that my future travel won't be with BA nor through London airport."

Pros: "Ran into some turbulence and the pilot did a great job calming down the passengers and explain the weather situation."
Cons: "food option were limited, only one meal choice left"

Pros: "Polite, friendly staff."

Pros: "BA crews are always great. Also excellent that they don’t have those annoying M&S menus on LCY flights. I don’t object to paying, but it just slows everything down."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive and food and drink good as on most flight to and from City Airport. Seats very comfortable compared to main fleet. City Flyer is still worth paying the extra which most flight by main fleet ex Heathrow or Gatwick are not."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and boarding not great as we were kept waiting in a hot bus outside the aircraft for 15 minutes"

Cons: "Because of inability to load baggage at LHR we were over an hour late departing. Upon landing in ORD the CSM noted that many bags did not make flight. This is very poor service."

Pros: "Comfortable short hop"

Cons: "Everything was great but they did not recognized the fact that I was vegetarian and by the time they passed by to ask what I wanted for food, they only had Curry Chicken as an option. They tried to be helpful but unfortunately I was not able to eat much in an eight hour flight."

Cons: "Pointless priority boarding if you get all priority passengers to wait for the rest of the flight.."

Pros: "Comfortable and clean flight, only 35 minutes."

Pros: "Par from below the flight was great as always"
Cons: "CSD was rude and not nice to his fellow staff member in economy. Small delay but not a common thing"

Pros: "Fast as smooth"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I always fly AA but this time was a nightmare"
Cons: "The gate agents put me on a wild goose chase as they made an error on the time of my flight departing. My wife and I were sent to three gates and finally was apologized to by the manager on duty. Our flights were changed for free put we lost 5 hours of travel. My wife started IVF treatment today... and she was uanbale to sleep before her 7am appt ( got home at 3am) Very stressful!!!"

Cons: "2 Hour Delay"

Cons: "Flight LCY-ZRH (19:35-22:10) departed delayed by >1h, we had to wait in boarding staircase standing with 9mth old baby for 45mins. Due to late take-off we were too late to land in ZRH as runway had already closed. Diverted to Stuttgart, where no BA staff was on the ground to deal with and all services had already closed (~00:30). Basically ~50 customers were dumped at a place they didn’t want to be and no info on his BA wanted to deal with it was given. After 1 week still no info on compensation. And this wants to be a major carrier?"

Pros: "Fast security and passport control at both ends, Home in 30 mins after landing"

Pros: "Flight was pretty good."
Cons: "Check in was very slow an staff was not very helpful."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I understand that airlines want to cut back where ever they can, but I have a hard time believing that you cannot swing a bottle of water and a sandwich. Oh BTW beware of their new “security” regulations. So I had a bottle of perfume in my carry on, only about a quarter maybe a third left in a 100 ml bottle. Guess what, it is not the amount of liquid you have in it, it is the amount the bottle can hold that matters. Needless to say they confiscated it."

Cons: "For some reason we were boarded and ready to go and only then did they think to send for a de-icer. A 40 minute delay on a 1 hour flight. At the other end we then had to wait 20 mins to get off."

Pros: "Most things"

Pros: "The food on the flight was good and the wheelchair assistance was good too."

Pros: "Simple flight left later than expect but arrived earlier than scheduled. Leg room was plenty and not like other airline where you feel packed like sardines."
Cons: "Nothing so far just a shame my luggage was damaged."

Pros: "Flight"
Cons: "Boarding at Gate E46 was disorganised both in timing ans execution. We were told on checkin that boarding would be early and it was late, closer to the original estimated time and then the order of boarding, parents with kids, then ExecClub and Business, and then others was ignored..."

Pros: "The flight was quick on boarding and on time in departing"
Cons: "Due to it being a short flight there's no snack, no complimentary drink, nor entertainment. Not that I need all for the quick flight. Maybe provide in flight entertainment through their BA app"

Cons: "Food, but surprised that they served anything!"

Cons: "The seats were too close. The food could have been better."

Pros: "Left and arrived on time! Comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Food and service could be better."

Pros: "When it got going, a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The delay was longer than the flight, although not necessarily BA's fault."

Pros: "First international flight. Did not know you are treated so well."
Cons: "That i am not able to sleep pn night flights. Not a problem of the airlines.Gail"

Pros: "It left on time."
Cons: "It was American airlines not BA. British airways never sent our bags on our flight leaving Gatwick. We got our luggage 2 days later."

Pros: "Service is great"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Apathetic crew and service desk - missed flight with no automatic rebooking - I had to wait for two hours on arrival, then take a bus to a new airport and wait another 6 hours to get on a new flight. No upgrade, no compensation"

Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and service was excellent"
Cons: "Keep the complementary snacks and drinks made the flight great after a long day"

Pros: "Seats to close. To small. When reclined they impact the seat behind more then they should. I carried my wifes carry on and they tried to place a yellow sticker on the second one saying it could not go in the overhead and would have to be placed under the seat or checkedm. Never believed it was my wifes Very aggraviting"
Cons: "Offer larger seats like United Airlines. For a few dollars you can upgrade economy to economy plus which offere 6 inches more leg room."

Pros: "The airplane comfort."
Cons: "I was forced to leave my power bank to the staff at the airport without any notification that I am not allowed to have it in my hand bag not even in my suitcase. That was rude and impolite. I'm so disappointed. As a passenger I have my rights and obligations, I'm aware of that! Yes, I would keep all the rules if knew about them. Now it seems that I didn't have any right in that time. I'll proceed with my complain at next level."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Got stranded in Heathrow"

Pros: "Food good and very attentive and friendly Cabin crew Amanda made the flight a pleasure."

Pros: "No access to any lounge services. Food selection and quality significantly behind competitors. Does not just the price charged."
