Pros: "Punctuality, onboard service and the food served were all very good. Their app is very practical, no need to go to the counter except for dispatch of luggage."
Pros: "Crew were good, apart from forgetting at breakfast time that I had ordered gluten free food. Food was OK but not memorable."
Cons: "Business class is not as roomy as other airlines. My partner had to climb over me to reach the aisle, there is very little storage space and seat size is quite small. Choice of movies is limited."
Cons: "This is ever the first time we flew with Swiss air and will be the last time. The seats are too tight. If the person in front of you inclined his chair for better comfort, then there is quite challenging for you trying to get out of your seat for washroom etc. The crew services were terrible. Between meals time, there were completely no services such as offering water/drink etc.-did not see a single soul of them, especially on a 9 hours long haul flight! The food was ok. The only thing I like was the chocolate handed out at the end of the journey."
Pros: "Crew helpful. Seats comfortable. Slept most of flight."
Cons: "Didn’t bother me because sleeping but much of flight apparently the entertainment system had issues"
Cons: "My Swiss flight to JFK was cancelled before 24 hours without explaining the reason. They should explain the reason at least. I had to take an another flight and arrived at JFK after 6 hours from the original flight. My trip was totally messed up, so I was not happy at all."

Pros: "Four economy short-hauls in two days: That extra tad legroom (A321, A320, CS100) Planes are very clean Good quality snacks Great staff"
Pros: "Quick and easy- no problems. We had drink service and a yummy croissant. Flights attendants were really nice and spoke great English."
Cons: "no light over my seat and I reported it before the plane took off. the plane was old, the entertainment system not as expected - really poor"
Cons: "I have just had the most unpleasant experience with Swiss Air and feel that anyone on FB should be very careful when dealing with this airline. I am a Gold Member of Star Alliance for more than 20 years and have flown dozens of times on Swiss and would expect courtesy and consideration in return for my loyalty to their airline. Their flight from Hong Kong to Zurich leaves at 00:15. I mistakenly booked this for Nov 9th instead of the intended late evening of the 9th which then turns out to be Nov 10th. When I discovered my error, I called Swiss at least six times to explain my error and ask if my son could stand by for the same flight on the 10th or even apply the amount to rebook the same flight the next day. ZERO flexibility or consideration. Missed flight, lose entire value. Start from scratch. Astonished that an airline that claims to be serving their customers would treat me this way. I travel through Europe at least 6-10 times a year from Asia. I will now route through Frankfurt, Munich, Paris, London, Vienna, Instanbul or even Moscow before ever going through Zurich again. I encourage anyone making travel plans to be very careful when considering flights with Swiss Airlines. Perhaps this treatment of a loyal customer explains why they went through bankruptcy already once."
Pros: "Swiss Air is very nice, planes are clean, snacks on board were fantastic!"
Cons: "Why the ridiculous amount of money to check a small bag? For this reason, I would not fly Swiss Air. My fancy sandwich was not worth CHF 50."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived a bit early."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "I bought economy class ticket! (I have a printout ticket as proof!) When I went to the airport i had a VERY UNPLEASANT surprise. I had a 23kg bag. Bording stuart said that my ticket is ECO LIGHT class and I don't have the right to any baggage. Worst thing of all was that the reason of my trip to Paris was my sister's graduation and half of the baggage was my formal wear and other half were presents for my sister! Your lack of transparency ruined one in lifetime special event- MY SISTER'S GRADUATION. I am very glad that you asked me for my opinion because I am using my free time to demand full refund, even tough the damage is much bigger than the cost of the ticket and it's irreplaceable."
Pros: "The flight was smooth; Attendants were nice and everything worked according to schedule"
Pros: "Chocolate was good, a bigger piece, or 2 of them would be better"
Pros: "It's swiss. everything works. always."
Cons: "i didn't like leaving switzerland. but stockholm isn't so bad. gate agent can be a bit more careful when letting pre-boards on - too many people flying to scandinavia do not seem to respect boarding priority."
Cons: "Only one agent to check in economy passengers two agents for first class and 2 or 3 for special needs. There were many more economy passengers and it took a lot longer to be serviced more agents for economy would have been more equitable"
Pros: "It was an uneventful trip, which is what you want in a trip by air. Boarding was easy, seats are pretty comfortable, staff friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Crew, food...."
Cons: "As I said before..."
Pros: "Clean and efficient plane, crew and procedures."
Pros: "Food & beverage, onboard entertainment and beauty product in the bathroom was good."
Cons: "Service was okay and the seats were horribly uncomfortable. Not what I remember from Swiss when I use to fly constantly with them 2 years ago. Also, I was singled out by the crew at the gate and pulled aside. Racially profiling at its finest."
Pros: "The flight crew was super friendly and efficient. Lots of leg room and the croissant is a nice touch!"
Pros: "Flight was not full and I was able to have several seats to spread out"
Pros: "Its on time"
Cons: "They trick u, from one way the take ur carry on when u come back they say u have to pay for it. The person that were giving me boarding pass she was very mean she asked a guy the guy was tottaly stupid he was acting like he is the owner of swiss airline"
Pros: "The flight from SFO to ZRH was in a newly fitted 777. The seats were very comfortable and we had plenty of leg room in economy class. Great and extremely nice flight attendants - thank you!"
Cons: "The flight from ZRH to SFO was in an older 777 and the seats were very uncomfortable with limited leg room in economy. This flight was not very enjoyable. I have to say though that the very friendly and helpful flight attendants were compensating for this. Thank you!"
Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."
Pros: "There was metalic box underneath the seat in front of me (entertainment box), that did not leave any room to stretch my legs"
Cons: "This box blocked any room to stretch my legs. The flight was full and I did not have the chance of changing seats. Flying 13 hours in this situation is unacceptable."
Pros: "In general it was perfect. Chocolate from Suiss at the end of the flight is just amazing!"
Cons: "Because it was a long flight, we would have liked to see a bit more the staff passing around slowly, so we could have asked for water in the night. The seats were not as incredible than the first flight from Spain to Zurich."
Pros: "A very short flight."
Cons: "I missed a collecting flight due to weather and the airline refused to rebook my flight."
Pros: "I appreciated the big meal, dinner, about 2 hours into the flight. Nice to have real metal utensils, not plasticware, to eat with. The 'breakfast' for the overnight flight was more of a throwaway: muffin, granola bar, fresh fruit cup. Nice to get wine, or maybe beer(?), with dinner at no extra charge, served from regular wine bottles, not individual-serving containers."
Cons: "$35 per flight leg (Lufthansa policy) to choose seats was distinctly annoying. I didn't know when I booked the flights, so the surprise $70 add-in (for round trip definitely would have figured into the price/schedule choice in the first place."
Pros: "La mejor compañia con la que he efectuado este trayecto en económica! Muy recomendable."
Pros: "Staff was very polite"
Cons: "Our flight got cancelled and it was slow rebooking very confusing"
Pros: "Generally clean environs and safe flight"
Cons: "Food was rather awful (other than the Movenpick ice cream). fold-out table and materials of seat seemed pretty cheaply made. Also not enough legroom. Hard to get service to come for your seat for extra water. Chocolate at end of flight was a cute touch."
Cons: "Good overall"
Pros: "There was no food"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "Crew member Tania Galic was very helpful"

Cons: "nothing Everything was good"

Pros: "The entertainment was adequate and there were multiple snacks/meals. The bread rolls were warm. And they provided towelettes for wiping hands after meals."
Cons: "The crew could have been more considerate, and the Economy seats were even tighter than usual! There was no leg room and even without the person in front of me reclining, the seat back was hitting my knees. The passenger next to me had longer legs and was much worse off. The food was very poor."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Boarding was unnecessarily chaotic."
Pros: "Very professional and polite crew"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour, luckily managed to make my connecting flight"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good Turkish food, plenty of movie choices, etc. Overall good."
Cons: "Seating space just too small for tall people: elbow room and front distance (awkward eating with long arms in confined space). But This is standard for most airplanes in economy class."
Cons: "Connection flight from plane to the gate,seats need to be updated"
Pros: "Boarding on time, service friendly, luggage up to 30 kg, good entertainment and comfortable seats, tasty sandwiches."
Cons: "Very poor boarding conditions. The board only said "proceed to gate". Once at the gate, there was not one single boarding announcement. People next to the representatives started to get up and everyone else followed."
Pros: "Nothing in particular. It was kind of the worst flight ever. The crew seemed inexperienced to manage a passenger that looked to be disturbed emotionally and mentally."
Cons: "They kept moving the passenger to the back o free plane where I was sitting and I was so scared."
Pros: "everything . also very spacoius restrooms. it deserves vest airtline"
Cons: "hmmm the flight is slightlt longer . hopefully one day soon there will be ditect flight to Malta"

Cons: "Delay in departure."
Pros: "Spacious seating, even the last row reclines. Very good service. Free food and drink served throughout - including two warm meals."
Cons: "Boarding was organized but super time intensive. They group you together and then board in groups. Seems unnecessary. Can't they just boarding rows, like most airlines?"
Pros: "The staff is awesome and made the trip comfortable. I aldo liked how quickly we boarded!"
Cons: "Expedia has doubled charged me for this flight and do not reimburse. You can't issue two seats for only one person. It's a scam."
Cons: "A little turbulence"
Pros: "Start from online checking, baggage dropped and boarding flight is a hidden tradition of high class hospitality experience. My first time ever to use Turkish airlines succeeded my expectations. food is great, the onboard seat is comfortable and the crews they're wonderful."
Cons: "Quietness and simplicity looks of high quality of crews presentation is a high class professional experience."
Pros: "Good and comfortable"
Pros: "It seems like the company and crew go above and beyond for its passengers. Even those in cabin. We still get treated like first class. That's awesome."
Pros: "The flight attendants were incredibly kind and attentive"
Cons: "Bathrooms were a mess. Badly need more cleaning throughout flight"
Cons: "How come a Business Class doesn't have sleeping masks? Unbelievable."
Pros: "In time"
Cons: "They did not give me window seat"
Cons: "Service is horrible. Airline staff is rude. Airport staff in turkey is eually bad. Avoid this airline and country at all costs."
Cons: "Staff is mean, impolite, and inefficient."
Pros: "Turkish canceled my return because I had the bad luck to miss the conection flight , I had to buy another ticket in another airline and even that they fined me"
Pros: "I am a frequent Turkish Airways travel and have always enjoyed my experiences with Turkish Airways."
Cons: "My seat was not functioning so I was not able to recline to more comfortably sleep during the flight. The flight was an overnight flight from NYC-JFK to Istanbul, i.e. so a VERY long flight! A flight attendent was not able to get the seat to recline either and said she'd come back to help with another seat or some other solution, but never returned. This made the flight less comfortable and a bit disappointing as my typically experience with Turkish Airways is excellent!!"
Pros: "Nice little commuter plane from one destination to another. Nothing particular fancy or negative to say other than a good charter plane to get to your layover for the final flight back home."
Pros: "I got a little bit sick on plane and the crew was super helpful and supportive."
Cons: "Tbilisi-Barcelona flight was okay but 5 days earlier I took the same flight from Barcelona to Tbilisi where they changed my flight time and nobody let me know!! I didn't receive any information about it and so I had to spend 6 hours at the Barcelona airport!"
Pros: "The Turkish airline staff was great and very helpful"
Cons: "Itinerary on the way to Amsterdam was not correct and made me miss my first connection No option to pick vegetarian food ."
Pros: "I liked the friendly staff and regular drink, hot wash cloth, and food."
Cons: "Bringing a hot wash cloth around just before landing after flying all night would be refreshing. I think it would give people the next best thing to a hot shower. I should have picked an isle seat. I was on a 10 plus hour flight and felt trapped and my isle guy had his headphones in or slept all but one small break in that 11 hours. I felt abit claustrophobic."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above, with used toiletpaper and all the health hazards there in making contact with the skin on your leg."
Cons: "They told us to observe the 4 groups mentioned on our boarding passes, then there was only one entry... From buses to plane, instead of separating people into buses according to seating, they mixed them all up, hence people who had seats up front were entering the rear of the plane and vice-versa, causing incredible congestion and confusion when boarding, people along the center aisles going both ways and trying to pass while loaded with hand baggage, quite ridiculous indeed."
Cons: "in a previous email we explained that by the time we arrived at the gate in Sao Paulo, the airline refused our boarding the plane and said only "we don't like Kayak". We never boarded the plane and there was a credit to our credit card, so why are you asking how our flight went?"
Pros: "Best entertainment system I have seen on a flight, bar none. Appreciated the USB port for charging"
Cons: "Transatlantic flight had smallest seat I have seen on a long-haul (fine on the shorter leg)."
Pros: "When we arrived at the gate we were told they did not have us in the system and the one gate attendant told us that the airline did not like Kayak. We were then forced to stay in the airport hotel at a rate of almost $200.00 as we were unable to secure a flight on a different airline until the next day"
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the ticket person and all the flight attendants on both flights. The cabin was clean, the climate was not too hot or cold. The pilots were very good at their jobs. The food was good."
Cons: "I didn't like having to disembark the plane in Istanbul while it was on the Tarmac nor get back on the plane while it was on the Tarmac."
Cons: "This is one of the worst airlines I have flown with. I travel internationally frequently, I had used Turkish Airlines on a domestic flight in Turkey back in the 90's. It was a decent experience. So I decided to book my flight to Athens with Turkish Airlines. I bought a nonstop flight from LAX to with one and a half hour layover in Istanbul and then flying to Athens on the same day. I was assigned bulkhead seats on the way over. On the day of the Parcher at the Turkish airline counter in LAX I was informed that my seat assignments were changed. The agent could not/ would not give me a satisfactory answer as to why! During the course of the same conversation I was also informed that my layover Istanbul is not 1 1/2 hours, instead it is seven hours and I will be flying out to Athens The following day. My flight was randomly changed to a later flight without my knowledge! After a long wait at the ticketing counter, the manager switched us back to the original itinerary. Sadly it doesn't end here. The take off was about an hour and a half delayed. This was about exactly the same amount of time I had as layover Istanbul airport. I asked several flight attendants about how will Turkish Airlines will handle this delay as my connection to Athens was in jeopardy. Again not one flight attendant could give me a straight answer. Some said "well hopefully you will make it to the next flight". One said "the pilot we will make up for the lost time". I also noticed that my original bulkhead seat assignments were given to three ladies who were friends of a first class flight attendant! it was really annoying to watch the flight attendant bring them treats from the first class kitchen area. It was clear that our seats were intentionally switched as a special favor. Long story short, upon arrival we were told that the our connecting flight is at gate 501 only to find out there was no plane at the gate!! We never found out what happened to our original connection to Athens, but we ended up waiting an additional 5 1/2 hours in the airport for then next day flight. No explanation given, no accommodations provided, no apologies!"
Pros: "The comfort of the seating, the flight crew, and the services Delta provides. I always have a pleasant time flying with them."
Pros: "Korean air is a step above the rest. Best airline in the business"
Cons: "No WiFi on the flight, but there is so much media offered you really forget"
Pros: "The seat was ok, but the crew was very good and helpful"

Cons: "Delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "Crew could have been better."
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Pros: "Landed early"

Cons: "Plane was delayed by more than an hour."
Pros: "The crew very nice and helpful"
Pros: "Good seats"
Pros: "The two stewardesses were awesome helping me to reschedule possible connecting flight due to leaving mdt 2 hours late"
Cons: "The gate agents were extremely slow causing the flight to pull from the gate 28 minutes late. The capitan of the plane needs a course on how to be polite to an upset customer"
Pros: "Flight was on time/ early."
Cons: "Have hot water for coffee and outlets for phones"
Pros: "Early and middle seat was open!"
Cons: "Coffee tasted like fish. :("
Cons: "Had an passenger spill coffee all over me and when I went into the back where 3... yes 3 flight attendants were standing they all just looked at me and asked what I needed. It was VERY obvious that there some type of liquid spilled in my hair and clothing. I asked for some napkins or anything to wipe up the mess. She shoved 3 napkins into my hand. Not friendly at all"
Pros: "Staff were very good."
Cons: "We had an infant and in order to get a meal for the baby one of our paid seats did not get a meal. Very unsatisfactory for first class. The toddler meal provided was terrible. Stale bread, cheese on the sandwich was so bad the baby wouldn't eat it, and he eats almost everything. It was the first food I have seen him refuse to eat."
Cons: "Very late .missed connection. Agents in Detroit were worthless to get us on different connection"
Pros: "17 minutes late, arrived 5 minutes early. Crew Friendly. If you agree ALL airlines screw you ( and they do) Delta is about as good as you can get."
Pros: "Food and service was nice"
Cons: "Very long route to my final destination"
Pros: "They tried."
Pros: "Delta is always great to fly on, but this was not the best.."
Cons: "We had delays EVERYWHERE. What is usually a 40 minute flight from Birmingham to Atlanta took an hour & 25 minutes. Once I landed, I had to connect allll the way on the other side of the airport. Once in air, things were fine, just hot. However, due to weather, we had to fly for an additional 45 minutes in the sky. The crew was as nice as they could be in that situation just overall a frustrating."
Pros: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Cons: "Late with no information"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t very friendly"
Cons: "Everything was to my satisfaction."
Cons: "Mechanical repair on nose wheel"
Cons: "We lost our whole vacation and had to pay for the plans fare twice because My last name was spelled wrong on our tickets and we were unable to use them because my passport didn’t match the name on the ticket. We had to rebook everything pay almost twice as much for the plane fare, our Lodi g cost more and our trip was delayed for two weeks. Vyama is blaming us for spelling our name wrong and claimes that it’s our fault this happened because everything is automated. There saying they don’t touch anything that we enter into the booking but somehow everything they claim we entered is now in all capital letters and the space between our first name and middle name is now gone and all run together. The coustomer service number gets you to someone in India. I have tried to get this addressed four times now at first they tried to place the responsibility on the airlines now us and they have hung up on me twice. Kayak has been worthless, they also just pass the responsibility on to someone else. We will never use them again ant I intend to make sure that this mess is put out in social media to hopefully keep others from having their travel plans ruined by their flawed system."
Cons: "Flight attendant from IND to Minneapolis must have had a rough evening or bad morning. Service in airplane is usually poor but this one was worse. Bumping most of the passenger when passing, handing drinks behind his back, not smiling."
Pros: "Empty seats, room to spread out"
Cons: "missed flight bc of delay with first flight. jad to wait 5 hours at lax"
Pros: "Happy with the choices of movies available"
Cons: "All was good, possibly add healthier food options"

I was told a confirmation of a new flight was going to be email once the request from the support had been approved (the email confirmation was never received). I was also instructed multiple times to not show at the airport unless I had receive the confirmation. I was up most of the night waiting for this confirmation that never came!! I received an email this morning letting me know the fight from ALT to Mexico had been delay!! When I opened it to view the itinerary it showed she had been booked for the am fight at 6:30 am! after spending another hour and 35 minutes on the phone your support team could not find a fight until Dec.21!! Not to mention the accepted they had problems with their email system and phones, but asked why didn't I called,mmm I was on the phone for the 3rd time!!!! I am very, very disappointed!! Not a discount was offer or a fight the next day even when I was checking an flights were available!!! Here is the other part,,Rosa came all the way from Mexico to care for her ill sister for the last 2 1/2 months, all she asked was to be able to be back home for the holidays!! Your team insisted on scheduling a flight for next week or a full refund!! This was not a money matter!! It's about getting some one home for the Holidays who has helped a ill person during the most vulnerable time in her life!!"

Cons: "Was looking forward to completing some work but the wifi never came on."
Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly and the plane was half empty."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and attentive. Boarding was good - efficient and quick."
Cons: "Seats were not that comfortable. Aircraft very noisy. Competition offers a much better service. Transfer in Atlanta was a nightmare, taking almost two hours from landing to getting to the domestic gate for the next sector. only three immigration staff working."

Pros: "The entertainment is good; several new movies"
Cons: "The dirty seats, the awful food and wine"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute.

I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Pros: "One of The crew members a guy from Texas was nice"
Cons: "The female crew Members were taking loudly and a lot during the flight it was difficult to sleep as a result. The food was low and very very bad"
Pros: "There were no problems at all, the only thing some times the entertainment would go out or slow, nothing else."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."

We went straight to security and immediately to the boarding gate but they had closed the gate and would not let us board, even though there was 15 minutes before the flight was due to leave. We were refused a refund and had to move flights to another airport 2 hours away and then had a 5 hour delay. We lost our car reservation as we would arrive too late to collect, we also couldn't check in to our hotel as planned as the hotel only allow check in until 11pm; we would have got there at 1am, so then had to book another hotel for the night. Airport staff at Lufthansa told us they could not help and told us to go away!"

Cons: "A pretty standard experience and nothing which makes you feel special. Other airlines might offer an upgraded meal in premium economy or a special cocktail, but not on Lufthansa."

Pros: "I am so angry and annoyed with Kayak! You are thefts and lyers! I got the tickets from your site where NOWHERE were mentioned « no laggage included ! At my suprrise we had to pay extra money to check in our laggage. I will never again will book thru your site and will always tell everyone how dishonest are you are. Your telephone support staff is unsupportable ! The best to get tickets directly through the flying company, their sites are honest and correct!"

Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats.

This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."

Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""

I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology.

Pros: "Easy boarding, plenty of room"
Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."

Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."
Pros: "Enough space good wine and on time"
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Pros: "Food was relatively good"
Cons: "We had ourtrip from San Francisco to Amsterdam which is one of the longest flights ever, andthe entertainment system wasnt working, we kept on telling them several times but nothing happened and at the end they wereeven avoiding us. By the end of the trip when we were approaching Ams, a hostess came and she gave us a $25 dollar discountvoucher to be used in our next trip, this is totally not acceptable!"
Pros: "On-time Quick boarding Friendly staff"
Cons: "Only pre-security lounge (Air France) that is open till 19:00."
