Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Service etc etc absolutely fine"
Cons: "Handling at Melbourne Tullamarine was poor. The plane landed on time but was sent to the wrong dock and that caused a lot of time wastage. This seems to happen in Australian airports more than anywhere else."
Pros: "the entertainment options."
Cons: "The cleanliness of the seat and surrounding area around the seat. Limited snacks. Inconsistent boarding."
Pros: "Plane was close to new crew well educated and friendly left my jacket on the plane when left and they met me at baggage claim without been asked Well done NZ"
Pros: "Air NZ is the best Airline."
Pros: "Nothing. I wasn't able to board the flight, so I wouldn't know."
Cons: "The staff from Air NZ made me lose my flight, keeping me doing queue after queue to pay for a piece of luggage that (apparently) was not included in a $350 fare. They wanted me to pay between $160 and $200 for putting a backpack in the plane!! Pay for almost another flight entirely! While I was going through the queues, the check in time ran out and, by the time I got to talk to someone at the desk to pay for the bag, the woman told me the plane didn't accept any more passengers... while I was still trying to get someone from the airline to help me! ONE HOUR BEFORE DEPARTURE. The plane was supposed to departure at 8:15 and I was still there at 7:15 trying to send my backpack to the cargo area...the solution? Re-book the flight, make me pay $185 in penalties and fees, plus $160-$200 for luggage and the difference of price when booking another flight."
Pros: "Consistent quality experience. Friendly staff. Good food. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Headphone socket was crackly with the supplied headphones."
Pros: "The crew was Ok, friendly but not overly friendly. Just professional."
Cons: "Its just a long flight and economy is just not comfortable to sleep in. Get business."
Pros: "Alecia (flight attendant) was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Being in the air for an extra twenty minutes and wondering if we were in an Erebus situation due to low cloud. I had assumed that planes had navigational instruments to assist landings in low cloud, but it seems that much depends on actual physical visibility. Is this something to do with the fact that flight control towers are not manned? It was very disconcerting and the pilot's seemingly casual attitude did not really help. I was grateful to finally be able to land but was told on disembarkation that had there been 50ft less visibility, we would have been on our way back to Auckland!"
Pros: "They did put us on another flight."
Cons: "Luggage was damaged and flights missed due to not enough time allowed to go through customs which ended up adding an extra 7 hours to an already 20+ hour trip"
Pros: "The crew were lovely - friendly and polite!"
Cons: "The delayed departure- but I truly understand that it was beyond the control of the company as the delay was weather related."
Pros: "The crew on Air NZ is consistently wonderful. The entertainment and sets for domestic flights are good, but not great. For international flights, their seats and entertainment are excellent."

Pros: "The corn chips!"
Cons: "The snack were very simple. They don't communicate properly all the different snack options."
Pros: "Great entertainment"
Cons: "Overall great"
Pros: "Lovely, friendly crew!"
Cons: "No seat selection available on line, so stuffed in the back. No place for luggage. No soft drinks on flight. Mexican chips??? What’s that about?"
Cons: "You could have warned about the 2nd bag fee! I paid $80 for having a 2nd bag!"
Cons: "We got off an hour and a half late as there was an audio technical problem."
Pros: "Flying Air NZ is a pleasure. You guys generally do a very good job. Even though the flight left late I was impressed with the Pilot announcement to allow connecting passengers to leave the plane first, and all others remain seated."
Cons: "The flight left late, making it stressful to catch my connecting flight in Auckland."
Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"
Cons: "Entertainment and seat comfort"

Cons: "When I booked this fly, no one tell me check in luggage has to be charged"
Pros: "the staffs and the boarding experienve"
Pros: "Appreciated check in staff who professionally answered our requests re routine steps to process check in. Only regretted that we weren’t aware (perhaps we missed announcement) that my husband who is still recovering from knee surgery was not aware we could have boarded from the forward entrance and avoid the descent and ascent via rear entry."
Pros: "Agents went above and beyond to help. Wish I had names because I was REAL impressed at how much they helped to get our bags checked. My son had purchased my ticket and not bought luggage voucher. They helped me get online and buy voucher. Would recommend airline to anyone traveling in that part of world."
Cons: "It was a very positive experience. No complaints. I will definately fly Air New Zealand when that is an option."
Cons: "The lack of communication with everything from queuing to board, to food allowance."
Pros: "Crew solid n friendly enough"
Cons: "Seats too tight n cramped"
Cons: "I was connecting on an International flight on same airline, New Zealand Air, and did not see where I was required to pay for our one checked bags for my wife and I. When I checked in on line I was not notified that I should buy the checked backs online so assumed one bag each was free. Instead we were charged $nz120. This is not acceptable and I would like a refund. Please help on this request. Thank you."
Pros: "The regional flights are nice and quick with no frills or complications. Everyone is in one cabin and you can quickly board using kiosks at the gate."
Cons: "You might want to bring a book on this flight or something as their in-flight video and adverts are all you'll really see in terms of entertainment."
Cons: "Bathroom did not work, food was not so tasty"
Pros: "Cabin crew was fantastic! Inflight experience was woderful."
Cons: "Airport personnel were very unhelpful. When I asked them a question, they told me to come back later. I came back at the time they said to and they told me they don’t have time for me. I need to come back another time. I went to another gate agent and she told be to go downstairs to the check in counter for help. That would have taken 2 hours. I called customer service and they answered my question quickly. I just wanted to know if I would be charged a fee to change my flight."
Pros: "Flying over the country of NZ."
Cons: "Crying kids."
Pros: "Attendants were friendly. The agent at the gate rerouted my flight after my initial flight was delayed. She explained she did that so that I could make my international connection in time."
Pros: "The usual "shuttle" flight between chc and akl."
Pros: "Comfy seats, the flight was basically empty so I got my own row. Very nice flight attendants. Pilot kept us updated on timing and storm movement."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, seat hadn’t been swept for garbage from the previous flight (wrappers and used tissues in the seat pocket)."
Pros: "Quickest boarding ever - Have hardly seen an airline having people board through the rear entry Super fun safety video All-in-all a great experience"
Pros: "The check-in process was extremely simple and easy. The staff were very friendly and happy to help. They didn't make a huge deal out of small problems, as so many seem to like doing."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, speedy boarding, nice comments from the captain."
Pros: "I was very impressed by the entire experience. Boarding and disembarking at front and at rear of plane, good spacing between seats, cookies, entertainment options... and lovely flight crew. Thank you Air NZ!"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of. Very happy with the flight."
Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to manage double door boarding a little differently - a ticket checker needs to be at the split point - to streams of passengers trying to find their seat in opposite directions just doesn't work."
Pros: "We did not use the food or entertainment"
Pros: "Staff & aircraft were good."
Cons: "Flight was little late but not too bad."
Pros: "Things generally went well on this flight; you never know what you're going to get, and this was successful- all went well!"
Cons: "Wasn't all that bad!"
Pros: "We flew with Air New Zealand a few times during our trip and every flight was absolutely perfect. Staff was nice and helpful, the cabin was comfortable and everything from checking in to walking off the plane was easy."
Pros: "Everything, felt safe"
Cons: "I didn’t like the spicy food"
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Pros: "The crew was FANTASTIC!! SO kind and helpful, and went out of their way the whole flight to assist us with anything and everything we needed! :)"
Pros: "Good movie selection, very friendly crew"
Pros: "Food was good and staff was friendly."
Cons: "Had to wait 3 hrs because of a system malfunction. And had a screaming toddler behind me the entire 13 hr ride. The headrest on the seats are very uncomfortable."
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: "It was on time."
Cons: "The food sucked."
Pros: "I fly a lot, and I notice when things go well. There is nothing I can complain about with Qatar; their equipment is up-to-date; their service is first-rate; their record for on-time departures and arrivals is excellent, and their food is good! I will gladly fly with them in the future."
Pros: "I had an exit seat"
Cons: "Service was only fair, no power outlets for a 15 hour flight. Seats too narrow. Only good options for every meal was chicken and vegetarian"
Pros: "Food was far superior to any other airline food. As was customer service. Airline payed for a nice hotel during lng layover."
Cons: "Clearing immigration in Qatar took about two hours. They had so many staff overal at the airport, but were super understaffed at immigration."
Pros: "food, crew ."
Cons: "entertainment choices for Hollywood movies are limited."
Pros: "Beautiful airplane with an incredibly hospitable staff. Food was delicious, seats were spacious and comfortable. Couldn’t ask for a better 14-hour flight!"
Pros: "Great service, on-time flights, very comfortable planes in excellent condition. Great value for flight cost, BOS-KTM, through DOH. I would fly again with them."
Cons: "Lots of mediocre movies to select from. Very slow deboarding in Doha onto buses."
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Pros: "Qatar airways is the best in middle East"
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
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 :)"
Pros: "The crew was always present. The food was good too."
Cons: "Too many crying children, but that has nothing to do with you guys. And the movie selection could have been more and better. The bathrooms should be frequently checked and cleaned."
Cons: "Food is not fresh, very uncomfortable seats and very little leg room."
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Lost baggage no one knows anything."
Cons: "Food and behaviour of hostess serving in our line I.e. Seat 34 b & 34c"
Pros: "Meeting me at the gate of the previous flight Driving me to the next gate all in a very hospitable atmosphere. Free sleeping pajamas Full food menu around the clock bed making service attention to detalis friendly air crew."
Cons: "Wifi is for a limited time and hard to figure out. toliettes get too busy during at peak times."
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: "Food could have been better. Dessert was disappointing, more choice could have been good."
Pros: "Courteous crew members Nice food tray containers"
Cons: "Portions were a little too small for me"
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: "They make you feel welcome like you are a big deal unlike most US airlines. Ticamporn was a great hostess especially . Food was great as well."
Cons: "The layover was too long"
Pros: "Crew Service"
Cons: "If a customer has not ordered Vegeterian / Special meal earlier, the crew doesn't carry any extra meal."
Pros: "Among airlines, theirs is one of the best. The have good leg room in economy, good food, good entertainment, and an excellent cabin staff."
Pros: "Amicable staff"
Cons: "Baggage was damaged. They seemed to be running low on vegetarian food (despite having selected so online) - I was compensated never the less."
Pros: "I like the new 350 plane. Comfortable seats, good entertainment and connections. I especially like that you can display cameras from outside the plane on your seat's screen."
Cons: "It was a confusing boarding procedure. We were sorted into zones, but boarded late. So, folks tried to get on all at once. We were in zone 1, and should have been the first economy on, but others just pushed past."
Cons: "Somebody smoke in the bathroom. My husband went and told the crew. But nothing was sone. They should have announced in the plane and action should have taken."
Cons: "My overhead light didn't work, my tray was broken, my headset was faulty (they replaced it on my 3rd request, my luggage didn't appear on the carousel for 1 hour and 50 minutes."
Pros: "13+ hour flight is never an "excellent" experienced but QA does its best. Great cabin service. Decent legroom. Food is good but not *quite* up to the standards of some competitors. Doha airport is great. Modern, convenient and clean."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and friendly. Qatar airlines also provided tons of food. Lastly the tv/games was a good source of entertainment."
Pros: "movies were good."
Cons: "14hour flight and you cannot give terrible food. You should know that. Although, a crew member did give extra food i request for a thing I liked."
Pros: "The attitude of the staff"
Pros: "Qatar airlines blew me away! The food was top notch and frequent, the flight attendants were incredibly nice and attentive, the planes and entertainment were world class aND they were affordable for our flight from Boston to Bangkok."
Pros: "Brand new and beautiful A350 aircraft, great service"
Cons: "Everything was wrong"
Pros: "Great crew. The A350 was a great experience, and I enjoyed that aspect of the flight. IFE was decent, large screens in economy also."
Cons: "Transiting at Doha was a giant clusterf*ck. I've been to the Kumbh mela in India, which is the largest gathering of people in the world, and I've seen better crowd control there. The transit security is a pointless exercise, especially when you have to go through security again. Boarding took well over an hour. Food portions are tiny, for such a long flight (BOS-DOH). WiFi is expensive compared to EK."
Pros: "The flight between Doha and Boston was delayed for six hours. The arrangement at Doha for the interim period was Excellent. Thank you."
Pros: "When I arrived in Boston a wheel chair was there to meet me and it took me all the way through customs and luggage to a taxi!!! I paid a handsome tip I was soooo happy!!!"
Cons: "I didn't like that I had such a hard time getting to my flight in Dubai! Sincerely, Kay grace Kaligrace2@gmail.com"
Pros: "I liked how they had pizza bagels those were delicious, I liked how the crew felt with a medical emergencie mid flight over the Atlantic. Entertainment was good but the devices are very slow to use"
Cons: "I didn't like how slow the crew was to pick up the trash but I also understand they had a bunch of things they were dealing with on the flight so it was acceptable I didn't like how when there are open seats in business and first class I can't upgrade or take that space so we don't have to be cramed back in economy"
Pros: "Received an upgrade to business class. Excellent service and accommodation."
Cons: "seats too small and airplane too hot. It took a full day for my body to recover from aches and muscle cramps."
Pros: "The plane is just very good big enough and comfortable compared to other air lines. The food is so nice and enough for each meal and comes in the right time. The entire crew is excellent with good communication throughout the flight. Lastly the broad entertainment available makes even your journey shorter as it keeps you busy."
Cons: "Too much hassle on boarding bus to train? I have watched some of the Elderly had too many problems? Carrying their own carry on on those steps? And the 15 minutes bus ride? We are in the 21 st Century? Needs to be improved. Jaya Sreedhara"
Pros: "Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Refusal to let passengers bring water purchased past security on the flight. I have flown hundreds of flight legs, many international, and never encountered such a policy. Water distribution on board did little to compensate. Shortage of vegetarian meals (unless ordered ahead of time) despite their listing on the menu as an option for everyone. I was seated in the first third of the cabin and got no meal. Vegetarian meals should either be available for all or not listed in the menu as an option."
Pros: "Service and comfort was good. Seats are bit smaller than other two gulf carriers. Food was good"
Cons: "Food could have been bit better."
Cons: "nothing special"
Cons: "Crew seemed more interested in chatting with themselves than in making sure toilets were cleaned and taking care of passengers. For Emirates standards this is obviously sub-par. If I were Emirates I would look to re-train them."
"The best airline i have traveled with thus far! They really set standards. Thank you Emirates =]"
Pros: "Friendly quality staff, good aircraft."
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Everything went well."
Pros: "They rescheduled without our consent and didn’t give any accommodation either. We stuck at Dubai for 24 hour"
Pros: "Crew was super nice and accommodating. Entertainment was the best selection I’ve ever seen."
Cons: "It was impressive. Can’t yhink of anything."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "On such a long flight from Dubai to Boston, the seats in coach were criminal! Way to narrow, not enough distance to seat in front of you, seats do NOT recline enough to be able to relax & get needed rest, no footrest & way overcrowded. Although the price was good, we truly suffered on this trip."
Pros: "Overall, wonderful! Appreciate that they started boarding early and that we left right on time, if not a little earlier. Was very comfortable and excellent flight. Thank you so much! Very pleasant experience."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Comfortable."
Pros: "The entertainment system. Easy to use and huge variety."
Cons: "The crew seemed very immature. They were more interested in gossiping about their social life and seemed to consider the job as secondary to why they were there."
Pros: "The food was great, the in flight entertainment was great, and as a tall person I appreciate that Emirates still provides a decent amount of legroom, even in Economy."
Cons: "Being sandwiched between 2 large men for a 12 hour cuddle."
Pros: "Information from the captain"
Cons: "Serving alcohol to someone who had consumed a lot, difficult for the crew to know though."
Cons: "Poor staff"
Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."
Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Delayed take off Delayed baggage retrieval’s"
Pros: "This was operated by Qantas. Nice movie/music setup. Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food plentiful but meat was tough and pretty instututional in taste. Couldn’t eat but half of any meal"
Cons: "No Bassinet provided. Staff was not friendly One of them was very rude. Food was not good. Couldn't get a vegetarian food"
Cons: "I payed for emirates not fly Dubai which was low budget flight. They charged me for a coffee on the plane... not something I would expect after paying 1400 for my tickets. And no where did it say fly Dubai on my tickets, I would have gone with other alternatives if I knew like Turkish. So last time I use kayak and will not be recommending it as well. This a rating for my whole trip to kathmandu not just Dubai to Kathmandu."
Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "Friendly crew and more leg room on the Emirates flights"
Cons: "Passengers that leave the bathrooms dirty with urine on the floor etc. Not sure what the airline can do about that during the flights. But for longer flights maybe a damp mop or something along those lines would be helpful."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Technical issues with my in flight entertainment that was never that was never corrected"
Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."
Cons: "I was taken by surprise that I could not take my SLR camera on board as carry-on luggage and had to check it (they were doing this to everyone, not just me and it covered laptops, kindles, cameras, etc - everything electronic except phones). This was not done on the flight into Dubai. Also irritating was when I got to Boston, an Emirates guy cut open the packing envelope open and in the process, accidentally sliced the camera neck strap. He was, however, very apologetic and eagerly got me the info needed to submit a claim to Emirates."
Cons: "Not a single thing. Emirates is terrific!"
Pros: "Great service; wonderful crew; best food & entertainment!"
Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."
Pros: "Low cholesterol meal was quiet good"
Cons: "Seats on the 777 are very uncomfortable, even more we you have a flight as long as DXB->BOS"
Cons: "We have booked two tickets separately. One for me and the other for my wife and kid. But we were travelling together. When we checkin, we told we need the seats together. But, they did not give the seat together. Also, our connection time was 2 hours for the next flight. To receive the baggage in the port of entry, it took more than 1 hour 15 mins in the carousel. After that we had to clear customs, change terminal and clear security in 45 mins to catch the next flight. It was really tough for us. They could have handled the baggage little efficiently."
Cons: "Headphone was taken by crew the moment plane landed."
Cons: "Honestly nothing perfect Airline Definitely I will use the Emirate at airline again and again"
Pros: "The entertainment options are excellent and legspace on the aircraft is good."
Cons: "For a 14 hour flight there are no water bottles provided. You need more than the couple of cups of water provided on the flight, and it is not practical to keep on asking for more water from the crew. Quality of food (Asian veg) was not very good."
Pros: "Comfy seats with good legroom, huge entertainment selection, free alcoholic beverages!"
Cons: "My connecting flight (booked through Emirates but operated by JetBlue) was inexplicably cancelled with 24h notice. Emirates did a good job finding me an alternative flight but somehow did not get my bags on my new flight even though the woman at the counter made a special call to "ensure" that my bags would come with me. Now I have to wait over 24h before I can get my bag."
Cons: "The crew hardly paid attention to request. I had to ping multiple times and wait for really long time to get a glass of water. I tried to get to the back, the crew dint even move to help us with anything. They sat together and were talking and dint even care to move. I have never seen this amount of careless attitude so far in emirates. Food quality has gone down quite a bit compared to my travel before."
Pros: "Staff is very attentive and always around. I am not a fan of instant coffee, but I got a cup of coffee when I asked for one outside of "meal times". The leg room is good, though I could still use a little extra."
Cons: "I wish the crew asked all passengers to reset their seat upright when food is served. I am quite tall and having the person in front of me recline is uncomfortable at all times, but while eating, there just isn't very much elbow room. Also the temperature in the cabin is really too cold. The entertainment system uses a two-prong plug for the headset, which requires you to bring an adapter if you want to use your own noise-blocking headset or headphones."
Pros: "I requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."
Cons: "On disembarking I notice a various overhead compartments with bags full of blankets. Why was a deny a simple Blanket? This is unacceptable in an airline that praises itself to be one with the best customer services.......Bad, really bad...."
Pros: "I love the fact that the crew is quite so international -- and that they all wear small flag pins to tell you where they come from! They were very good with the children -- and I loved the fact tht they came round and took polaroid photos of passengers - particularly the families!"
Pros: "The flight and accommodations were wonderful during the flight. The accommodations during the layover were nice at the Boston Courtyard Marriott. Pam & Keith Schroeder"
Cons: "We waited in Dubai 3 hours for connecting flights to arrive because of fog. When we arrived in Boston, they told us we had missed the connecting flight to Detroit by 20 minutes and could not fly back until 26 hours later. We were disappointed that the $50 dinner voucher would not allow us to each have 1 alcoholic beverage. (We should have read the fine print...)"
Pros: "Emirates is always excellent however the crew were not very engaging"
Pros: "Crew was awesome trying to make me everyone that was in the same area with baby crying as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Baby cried for 8 hrs out of a 13hr flight it was horrible."
Cons: "There was a group of teenagers sitting in 8 seats in two of the middle rows right next to me. They spent the whole flight climbing all over the seats and each other. They were very loud, often banging into other passenger's seats, and leaving their stuff in the aisle where people were tripping over things as they walked by. They were really inconsiderate of other passengers - many of whom were trying to sleep on a 13-hour flight. It would have been nice if the crew would have told them to be quieter and more respectful of other passengers."
Pros: "Very uneventful flights and that is a good thing. Friendly flight crew, good food served and on time."
Cons: "The aircraft from was showing some wear."
Pros: "The upgraded seat to business class."
Cons: "Some staff still needs training, sinplying saying no, is not acceptable, finding a solution and working towards a resuloution is more acceptable. Better verbiage used, checking on food count making sure EVERYONE gets what’s printed on the menu. Asking everyone equally on the same roll is the rule of thumb."
Pros: "CX882, seat 44k would not recline. Made my journey a bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was not delayed"
Cons: "Economy seating needs more leg room and room to recline seats especially for 15 hr flight. Carry on baggage is only 15 lbs."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Too cramped not enough space staff are not friendly will not fly Cathay again"
Pros: "Helpful and friendly crew"
Cons: "never enough leg room in economy!"
Cons: "They don’t offer enough food on a long flight"
Pros: "Friendly & mature"
Cons: "Service, self service snacks, attendant never came for anything and crew was rude, passed out customs form when exiting plane"
Pros: "16 hr flight on time despite 18 inches of snow in Boston."
Pros: "Great service and smiley staff"
Cons: "the fact that it's a 14 hour flight, i hope someone invents a faster plane soon."
Pros: "Seats had good headrests with adjustable "wings" to cradle head while sleeping. USB plug below entertainment screen."
Cons: "A good half the plane was first class and business class. (This was a 15 hour Hong King to Boston flight.) They handed out a fancy menu with 4 entrees but by the time they got to economy only pasta was left. We did at least get a small bottle of water; on our outgoing flight they doled it out in meager glasses. When boarding in Hong Kong we had to go through an additional security check between the gate and the plane (that was a first...) and had our water bottles confiscated. So we were reliant on what they would give us on the plane. Seats were tight, unlike some airlines that give you a little extra room. Wouldn't fly again unless their price was a real bargain."
Pros: "Great crew, very professional. Food good. Easy boarding. Staff at check in were great fixing the problem of my seating."
Cons: "I had booked my seats online, however nothing was in place when checking in."
Pros: "Cathay was able to get my luggage off the plane that I missed. They also got me out of Hong Kong later that night with a quick stop at LAX before heading home to Boston. They really went the extra mile for this weary traveler."
Pros: "Punctual, service"
Cons: "Price more expensive"
Pros: "Great flight. Smooth, on time, good service."
Cons: "I wished the attendants offer more water without asking during the long flight. I had to ask several times."
Pros: "The vegetarian/vegan meals were very good for airline food. There was a great selection of entertainment options."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants who was assigned to my section, her name was Rain, was incredibly rude. Every time I asked her for a glass of water, she would sigh heavily and tell me to wait. Eventually, she stopped serving me all together and I needed to leave my seat and ask other crew members to serve my food. She was completely unprofessional and she made it clear she didn't like me, despite the fact that I was always going out of my way to be courteous. At one point, she walked down the aisle and stepped directly onto my foot, which was NOT in the aisle but under the seat in front of me. She didn't even acknowledge that she had stepped on my foot and kept walking. For a 14-hour flight, I was really bothered by her lack of professionalism. I will have to think twice before I book Cathay Pacific again."
Pros: "The crew is nice. You can order snacks in between meals."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and we were automatically placed on another EARLIER flight and we weren't notified. I found out the morning of our original flight, as our new flight was about to board. I still haven't figured out who was responsible for this snafu - the airline or Webjet.com. Webjet customer service was horrible and offensive when I tried to explain to them what happened; they said it was my responsibility to check the time. I would disagree - the customer is ultimately supposed to get an email notifying them of the flight change, giving them options. Based on that phone call with Webjet, I will NEVER do business with them again. As for the flight cancellation issue - if Kayak could help me get to the bottom of this, that would be appreciated."
Cons: "The crew gets annoyed when you are in economy class and asks for extras"
Pros: "Karen was nice."
Cons: "They took my drink I just bought before boarding the plane. The landing from the pilot wasn't great... by far the worst landing from all of my travels. The food for Vegetarian Lacto-Ovo Meal (VLML) - (A Vegetarian Meal that may also contain eggs and dairy products) was gross and the guy flight attendant wouldn't give me ice cream because I had a special meal. All I wanted for food was no meat; I didn't expect it would have no ice cream and no real food. I should've, could've taken one of the options on the food list and push away the meat myself."
Pros: "Entertainment system worked fine."
Cons: "Economy class cabin is chaotic. Food is mediocre."
Pros: "Food and attentive staff"
Cons: "Got stomach ache after eating the food."
Pros: "Boarded on time. Landed safely."
Cons: "Crew not very attentive to passengers. Seats are small and leg room is very cramped for a 13hour flight."
Pros: "comfort and service is always great on cathay pacific"
Cons: "bathroom were dirty"
Pros: "From above ---to serve us, without getting sick, great job by the crew.t"
Cons: "They had us board from gate 4 and they added a security station and we wandered around trying to find the gate. Someone should have stayed out there to tell us why we couldn't even approach gate 4. It was total confusion being seated in gate 3."
Cons: "My booking did not allow me to do seat selection. Me and my wife sat separately. No resolution from the crew to resolve this. Seats are not comfortable."
Pros: "TV controls user-friendly. Many choices."
Cons: "Cramped seats, especially when people in front lean back."
Pros: "I like the service and the foods are so delicious."
Cons: "The charging port when I was on my way to Hong Kong from Los Angeles, it wasn't working so that's the only thing that I didn't like."
Cons: "The one issue I had was that the crew members did not come around with drinks aside from during meal times. This is a 15+ hour flight, and people got so thirsty that a line of people went to the kitchen themselves to get water."
Pros: "Flight attendant spoke good Mandarin and was willing to continue to speak it even to someone who didn't look like a Chinese speaker - unlike some Chinese airlines where they launch into English assuming that if you don't look Chinese you can't speak Chinese."
Cons: "A glass of wine or beer would have been lovely."
Cons: "As above. Total failure by Cathay pacific. We were abandoned."
Pros: "Amazing flight! Continue to serve pleasantly to all passengers"
Pros: "Good selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Long wait to board then to take off...why can't we bring water on board for this Fifteen hour flight????"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Above average food offerings. Wide selection of entertainment choices on individual entertainment console."
Cons: "Seat cushions not comfortable. Power outlets dont work consistently (both USB and AC outlets). No individual air vents. Strange security protocols, going through security transfer between arrivals and departures in Hong Kong, then an additional security bag inspection in the boarding way just prior to getting on the plane."
Pros: "Entertainment and food are better compared to other international flights."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and boarding was a bit chaotic."
Cons: "bring back Me Before You!"
Pros: "Easy check in, and a pleasant flight! Thank You!!!"
Pros: "Behaviour of flight crew, punctual arrival,food and departure.Great prices. Nice support from ground staff during lengthy queues at Kolkata immigration.Thanks!"
Cons: "Nothing much ! Restriction of cabin baggage to 7 kilograms for passengers on very long routes ( Kolkata ,HongKong to Boston and San Juan in my case) and being asked to weigh all cabin baggages and check in a cabin baggage of 9 Kilos."
Pros: "Staff were always helpful and courteous. Seat in executive economy was comfortable. Food was good. Overall a pleasant experience."
Cons: "A bumpy ride but couldn't be helped."
Pros: "Seats are relatively comfortable and there are a lot of free snacks."
Cons: "We had trouble checking in online due to a hyphenated last name- tried to call the airline a couple times and everyone was polite but did not help us. We kept getting shunted to someone else and in the end no one did anything and we got stuck in terrible seats separated by many rows. Still better than United though."
Pros: "Very impressed with the quality of the entire experience."
Cons: "Wishing there was free wifi connect."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew were very nice and supportive."
Cons: "Nothing to complain."
Pros: "The entertainment system is quite good."
Cons: "The food, while hot, is not quite as good as ANA's offerings, but I was happy to have it. The chair cushions are also a bit thin on the bottom, or they are rather hard, but overall I found them otherwise fairly spacious."
Pros: "Inflight service"
Cons: "business class seat was somewhat uncomfortable to sleep on either back or side positions."
Cons: "need more entertainment options; premium economy does have wide seats but not very comfortable"
Pros: "For some reason the service was slow. There seemed to be less staff than previous flights. The food was average too."
Pros: "40kg baggage allowance"
Cons: "1. You are trying to communicate with me in Dutch, which I don't understand. I only understand English. 2. My booking was not eligible for online seat selection or check-in."
Pros: "Great service and flight"
Pros: "When you lose your phone in the business class seat and a technician goes to find it once you land in Zurich and the day that it has miraculously disappeared there isn’t much to like at all about Swiss Airlines. Swiss Airlines isn’t going to hear the end of this is they don’t agree to replace my son’s phone. My husband is a lawyer and we are prepared to bring this to the public."
Cons: "My son dropped his phone in business class seat and the ground staff technician claimed it wasn’t there. Theft at its best! Swiss Air better take responsibility for their shady staff and agree to replace my don’s Phone promptly or we will take this to the public eye and courts. I’m sure we could get a big class action suit."
Pros: "From start to finish, Sevdije was in great hands. She had to be in a wheelchair, and there were three connecting flights in countries where she doesn't speak the language. It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
Cons: "The screens would freeze for all the people around. The connecting flight had 50 minutes, however there was another security check and gate was quite far, everything had to be done in a hassle and we were nervous throughout regarding missing the flight."
Cons: "Swiss Air allowed us to book a flight with 45 minutes to connect. First flight came in a few mixtures late, but then we had to wait our long turn to deplane, get on bus and wait for it to fill up with all slower passengers, drive to terminal, make it through passport control, take train to other terminal, and run 20 gates down where they were looking for us. We made it with 1 minute to spare from takeoff. They knew our bags were connecting and they made it. If they could've expedited our passage with a club car it would have been excellent."
Cons: "Older plane with poor seat comfort. (Same trip Bos to Zurich much better.) Video did not work at all in one seat and poorly in other ,for 7 hr flight"
Pros: "Swiss air Business is an excellent choice. I will fly this Airline again. It was extremely comfortable, service was excellent, and the flight crew made up our lost time in the air. We had a tight connection and they waited for us."
Cons: "We were scheduled for a 55 minute layover in Zurich which was not nearly enough time. Our plane was 10 minutes late in landing but our next flight was delayed 5 minutes. We had to take a bus from the plane to the terminal, go through immigration with very long lines, take a tram to our departure terminal and then run to our gate which was at the end of a very long hallway. Luckily they held the plane but it was very stressful and exhausting getting to our plane."
Pros: "The crew was superlative, and after I was stuck for an hour at passport control I found the captain waiting with my dog(in his crate) to make sure of his well being. He said he made sure he kept the climate control at 20c the whole time on the plane. You hear all these animal horror stories but this went above and beyond."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Food was good. Good take off and landing."
Cons: "Seats. They were extremely too small and tight. Made very hard to move or try to sleep during the long flight. I think they definitely need to be wider. Hard to sit side by side with others. Had to keep my arms in front of me or I would be pushing the other person. I know all airlines are pretty much the same...but it shouldn’t be."
Cons: "Need to make it more clear that it is necessary to complete a second passport controle at the boarding gate....causing confusion for some travelers who are not aware of this extra step"
Pros: "The most difficult problem I have to deal with in airline transportation occurs when the fellow traveler in the seat in front of me decides to drop their seat back into my lap. The seats are so close together that when the seat in front of you is all the way back the following happens: 1. You can no longer view the monitor on the seat back. 2. You cannot eat or write from your tray top. 3. You have great difficulty getting out of your seat. 4. You have great difficulty keeping from severely injuring the occupant of that seat. The way to deal with this is to get out of your seat. Stand in front of the offending passenger and as politely as you can as him or her to refrain from dropping the seat back so far. But the airline should not put you in this situation."
Pros: "Unlike some airlines the cabin crew is professional in appearance and behavior- courteous and pleasant. My husband and I enjoy the fact that ski equipment is taken without additional charge. The direct flight to Zurich is very convenient."
Cons: "Having to pay for seat selection"
Cons: "We (parents) were business class, but our two kids in coach, yet Swiss doesn’t allow “guests” in the lounge. Hmmm. What a bunch of BS."
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."
Pros: "The staff was courteous and effective. The pilots made up time after waiting for a few connecting passengers."
Cons: "The food was edible but not up to the usual Swiss Air standard."
Pros: "The chocolate was good. The flight was fine no issues. The flight staff was very good."
Cons: "Had to pay $100 for my second bag. I did not pay for the extra bag on my way out. As a star alliance member and a united chase explorer card user I don’t think I should be paying for the extra bag. I booked the flight through United for the expressed reason that I have privileges when on united and feel if I book united these privileges should transfer. If not what’s the point of being a loyal customet"
Pros: "Staff, and service were good."
Cons: "We had to Run from our arrival gate to our departure gate, and take a train, and go through immigration and then a second documents check. It looked to me like Swiss Air knew we were running close as the flight rarely (if ever) leaves on time. It was stressful for us and for the 30+ others who were still in line in immigration when the flight time passed. It turned out to not be a problem but the published times are unrealistic. Seats were tight and comfort in cattle class is NON Existent sleep on an 8 hour flight was not even possible."
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS AWESOME BEFORE THE PLANE EVEN TOOK OFF!! My flights somehow got real messed up and everything down to my luggage had to be input manually. I wasn't sure if it was going to make it with me to the final destination. But it did! The head rest blew me away just as i sat. I love to know I can fall asleep and not have neck problems. And everything from the movies to the service to the food was great! My first international yet BEST experience in economy class was all worth it!"
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: "The space for each seat was much too small, especially for the long uncomfortable flight. Seats also uncomfortable to sit on."
Pros: "They are the best airline flying to Boston."
Pros: "We received an upgrade to business class. The entire experience was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed in taking off, and our gate wasn't available when we landed so we had to wait again, ultimately adding approximately 1.5 hours to the trip."
Cons: "See above about missed flight because of SWISS and no help or communication. Still haven't left and not happy."
Pros: "See above. Zurich is a very easy airport and even though our layover was short we never felt rushed or stressed."
Cons: "There was no wifi available, the airline did not have a record of my request for a vegan meal even though I submitted one when I booked my tickets, and they claimed I did not pay for/reserve a seat (even though I had for the flight over, which I booked at the same time as the return flight), so I was stuck in a cramped middle seat for 8 hours trying to write a paper without the internet."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, planes was very clean, the food was excellent and the staff was friendly."
Cons: "Couldn't change seats online after reserving them online in advance. Headsets use proprietary connector and plug had to be held in place to get both ears to function"
Pros: "There were a couple of stewardesses who were nice and helpful to the passengers. The food selection was fairly good. Drinks were available at regular intervals. Flight was comfortable except for some turbulence during landing."
Cons: "There was no pre-boarding for families with kids. They waited until the entire Business and First Class passengers boarded in Zurich before they allowed us. This was different in Mumbai where Swiss had families with kids board early. The airbus was not well maintained as fara s cleanliness was concerned. There were bathroom supplies on the toilet floor. Crumbs and food particles on the seats/crevices from the earlier flight"
Pros: "food and crew were excellent: good meals, free wine."
Cons: "Screen was dim and low-resolution, controls slow and hard to use, no power outlets."
Pros: "I was extremely pleased with everything about my SWISS flight. I have family in Switzerland and have flown 8 times in the last 5 years. This was by far my best flight."
Cons: "The flight crew was horrible. The desk crew inept. A wheelchair was requested but not there on checkin. Pre boarding did not happen as was supposed to. Older person male at desk was rude, insulting and sarcastic. This did not happen on Boston end. The person was there with wheelchair at the Boston gate and assisted us. Not in Zurich. What about handicap travel? Swiss????"
Pros: "I loved the timing of my connecting flights. Just enough layover time."
Cons: "COMFORT: Extremely challenging and expensive to get emergency exit seats (more leg room). For someone who is 6'5" (195cm) traveling can be very challenging in an economy seat."
Pros: "As a frequent traveler, SWISS hadthe best airline food I've ever tasted. Very efficient in everyhing they do. Great service and the crew was very friendly. Unfortunately, I had a seat that was in between the two in front of it, so my TV was at an angle, but only a minor inconvenience"
Cons: "At the check-in gate there was pandemonium. It was not clear how to proceed. The lines were long and disorderly. Since I had passed through passport control, I didn't think I would need to go through again just before boarding. I was in line, ready to have my boarding pass scanned when I was told I needed to have my passport checked! I had to step out of line, go back and get my passport checked, then go back in line to board! I could not get an assigned seat until I got to Zurich. I needed an aisle seat (I had a bladder infection and would need to use the toilet often). It was left up to me to negotiate with my neighbor to switch seats--- the crew would not help at all. I was cramped in my seat. The man in front of me put his chair too far back; I was difficult to work on my laptop with so little room between me and the table. The snack was horrible---uncooked, tasteless calzone and ice cream."
Pros: "The crew was terrific, the pilot provided us with lots of good information, and though the plane left late, it arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats are configured exactly opposite the human back. Clean, new, but very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and accommodating. I LOVE that we were given ice cream and chocolate - only wish I'd been given more chocolate. They came by with drinks often and made sure that we were well hydrated."
Cons: "The boarding process took a long time. I had to go through customs, then at the gate they checked my passport again and the line was VERY long. The process just did not seem to be managed very well. There were issues with the tv monitors; however, the crew handled it very well. I wish we had been given an option with the calzones - I don't like red peppers or tomatoes, and was not offered another option."
Pros: "that the movie stayed on while people were filing out which made it less frantic and more chill. the lines at immigration were terrible"
Cons: "the calzone served just before landing was tricky because the inside was soupy and it was messy to eat"
Cons: "Through no fault of the airline, there was a strong thunderstorm that delayed our flight. Little information was provided about the situation. It was obvious that we could not fly in the storm, but we were not informed about the likely departure time. The reason I gave a poor ranking is that my suitcase/pack must have been left out in the downpour on the top of the pile so all of my clothes were extremely wet when I reached Boston. The bag itself was wet so it was not a case of something leaking in the bag. I have had to wash all of the clothes and iron them."
Pros: "Agbundance of newspapers and magazines and great variety of entertainment"
Cons: "Upon boarding it was possible to save a bit pof confusion by placing the sign that passport control is needed before boarding. Some were turned away from one line to get into another line."
Pros: "Crew was excellent, and the food was both ample and appetizing."
Cons: "The boarding process is a little chaotic for the economy cabin since there is no distinctions by zone or seat row. The result is a bit of a surge when they first announce the boarding of the cabin."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for no particular reason. The entertainment system is terrible - it was interrupting (freezing) the movie every several minutes making it almost impossible to watch."
Pros: "The crew were great. They did the best they could given the circumstances. We got a compensation voucher because of all the trouble on the flight. That's something, though it's not super useful for the occasional traveler on SWISS (2000 miles and more bonus miles or CHF 50 travel voucher)."
Cons: "The plane arrived in Boston 50 minutes late, because we left Zurich late. That was because we were waiting on people to make a connection. Which was probably because their SWISS flight was late. Why are all SWISS flights running late??? There was no coffee or tea on the flight because there was a problem with the electrical system of the hot water machines. That could have been fixed before we left.... The entertainment system is clunky, and it didn't help that it had to be rebooted (took 20 minutes !?!?) in the middle of the flight to deal with some 'isssues'. The big boxes with the entertainment system underneath the seats are not fun either, they really cut into legroom. In general, it seems this plane is in need of a bit of an overhaul and maintenance. And whatever happened to Swiss punctuality? I'm not used to SWISS flights being late. You can do much better than that, you used to!"
Pros: "That I was able to get the front seat with the extra legroom at no extra charge. I also liked that the take off and landing were smooth. As was the flight in general. Also, the Swiss chocolate was good."
Cons: "The seats are so narrow and uncomfortable! The overnight flight from Boston to Zurich was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever experienced. There is no legroom. And the seats are incredibly narrow. When the person in front of me had their seat reclining I had even less room. Horrible. The only reason the flight from Zurich to Boston wasn't quite as bad was because I was able to get the seat by the exit aisle with extra legroom. The food was terrible. It didn't taste like real food. It looked and tasted totally artificial. Overall, a very poor experience."
Cons: "not enough leg room with black metal boxes where our feet should go! food was discraceful, especially coming from italy, the calzome was an insult. i dont expect gourmet, but this was inedible. the rest of the meal was also not good. seats were visibly discolored because old and icky. old plane, really loud engine background noise. . . staff seemed unhappy. I think as a rule that if the staff notices some uncourteous person reclining completely in coach and there is someone behind them, especially if it is a person with longer legs, that they might nicely suggest to that reclining person that they are rude and should recline less. the staff on this plane did nothing of the sort for several violators of this type"
Pros: "went smoothly on our flight from Zurich to Boston. The flight attendants made all the difference! We would fly Swiss Air again."
Cons: "The arm rest would not raise so it was 100% out of the way on our Airbus 330. This was true for all coach seats in the main cabin."
Pros: "Got an entire row to myself so I could lay down and sleep! Thank god! Flight smooth and attendants were kind. I was on a connection and thought I was going to miss my flight but thankfully they wait or all passengers from connections to board (from delayed flights arriving)."
Cons: "I am gluten-free and there was really no options for me to eat. However, the attendants offered me two of the snacks on board that were GF in lieu of a meal. Unfortunate there was no real food I could eat, but the snacks were appreciated."
Pros: "This flight was absolutely amazing the staff, boarding , food entertainment and comfort were highly delightful I would book again with Swiss Airlines in a heartbeat thank you so much kayak you are amazing"
Cons: "Several flights to US were leaving from the gates in the same wing of the terminal. A separate US passport control hurdle was set up there as an additional step prior to the boarding. The lines were long and barely moved when I joined about 40 min before my departure time. The security guy who handled the lines refused to let me through without waiting in the line. I was pretty stressed that I won't make it in time. Eventually it was all fine, people were picked up from the line by crew members of the flights that were about to leave. And when I eventually got throught, the flight did wait for about 15-20 min for the connecting passengers that were late. Having a clear communication at that US passport control line near the gate would make my flight connection and boarding process much less stressful."
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Boarding is efficient. Plenty of snacks. Seats had good amount of legroom and I was not squirming the entire time in my seat to be comfortable like on some other airlines."
Cons: "In flight video system did not play in both seats for myself and spouse, so we had to move seats to find working movies. Entertainment controls need to be cleaned more often."
Pros: "We had front row seats! Lots of room! At last, a comfy cross-Atlantic flight! food was good and plentiful. Staff was always circulating in the cabin to clean up or bring additional drinks or snacks."
Cons: "Bathrooms got a little messy toward mid-flight. Flight left 1 hour late with no explanation. But we did get in close to on time. Blankets were itchy, itchy, itchy!"
