Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The food and very professional and friendly service."
Pros: "Crew was really nice can’t complain"
Cons: "Other airlines offer free beer or even hard liquor here u have to pay"
Cons: "Entertainment system is dated. Screens froze often, were not very touch sensitive and the sound was pretty bad (on mine, would only provide sound to one ear, so I had to turn up other bc of poor quality and ended up w a headache.) Also, bathrooms were gross; ran out of paper and floors were "soiled""
Cons: "Not missing my connecting flight. Being flown to the correct airport. Not having my luggage go missing."
Cons: "After showing passport to get boarding pass, had to line up to show passport again to get boarding pass stamped at gate-no instructions, just a line.. Why!? Poor communication."
Cons: "Swiss does not know how to handle their own problems and hurt passengers in the process."
Pros: "Very friendly, without being intrusive. Responsive and happy."
Cons: "The plane from Milan to Zurich was wonderful, light airy and felt like a new plane."
Pros: "Swissair seating is cramped with 10 across in coach in Boeing 777. The only reason for not giving "poor" rating on this particular ZRH-SFO flight, was the empty seat next to me."
Cons: "Next time, I will give Turkish Airlines a chance, because their aircraft seats only 9 across in Boeing 777 coach. On the SFO-BUD flight, the connection is through Istanbul, but the flight time is the same 15 hours, as on the SFO-ZRH-BUD route. In addition, two checked bags are free in coach."
Pros: "the crew was great."
Cons: "they asked us to check in our carry-on because the plane was full.I had important papers so I had to explain my situation. I hate confrontation so I felt anxious and I'm already an anxious flier. I feel that this should only pertain to people with larger carry-on. my was below the average size."
Cons: "Old plane, rude crew"
Pros: "Our quick trip from ZUR to FLR was great! Flight was on time and pilot kept all passengers well informed upon our arrival in FLR."
Pros: "After having read Swiss Airline reviews I was prepared for a difficult and uncomfortable trip from BOS to ZUR. I was pleasantly surprised to the kindness and comfort I found in the economy class of Swiss Airline. Bags were checked in, flight was timely and legroom was satisfactory. I would highly recommended Swiss Airline due to my overall experience."
Pros: "The movies were good, the food was good. Servers were kind and helpful. Clean and overall positive flight."
Cons: "Several delays and gate changes."
Cons: "They canceled the flight and took me to another company with a stop in Turkey,it was a really bad and uncomfortable flight And I’m really disappointed!!!!!"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Economy seats in business. Also baby strollers took ages to come out at Heathrow, should have come to the door, but instead came at baggage claim about half an hour after our baggage, so pretty poor service in that aspect"
Pros: "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: "Great service & lots of room to sleep"
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: "Everything was as accommodating as possible."
Cons: "I was randomly selected for a second security check at the boarding gate in Zurich airport, the security staff were unfriendly, said it was a TSA requirement even though I stated I am a United States Citizen and That I have already passed through a complete security check Point, still they placed a metal & scanning detector on my feet, hands & belt. This was a complete violation of my rights. Never have I faced a humiliating situation at any other airport. If this was a TSA requirement then everyone should be subject to a second security check."
Pros: "2 snacks .. friendly flight attendants .. early arrival"
Cons: "seat pitch a bit tight"
Pros: "Boardoing 7h10; 7h25 announcement we would arrive on time 8h50. No further announcement, late departure. Arrival 9h25. - mo explanation. Luggage only at 9h50"

Cons: "space at my feet!"
Pros: "Crew was courteous."
Pros: "Swiss took care of your mistake, booked on subsequent flight."

Pros: "Got bumped to business class."
Cons: "What's not to like about that?"
Pros: "Loved the smoked salmon!!"
Cons: "No wifi or tv"
Pros: "See below"
Cons: "We got to Rome airport 4 hours before to not miss flight! They booked us with 45 min to connect in Zurich. Then flight from Rome kept getting delayed with no explanations. We got to Zurich with 30 minutes to go. We literally ran to get to gate E. We got no help from Swiss employees and got to our gate with 10 min before flight. They said gate was closed. Went to transfer desk, next flight was next day at 1 pm. Missed very important meeting at work that I had planned around for months. Very upset and disappointed. Felt they could have helped us a lot more and got us on our flight."
Pros: "When we landed"
Cons: "Everything else..."
Cons: "Paucity of games that might appeal to non children."
Pros: "Nice, clean and modern airplane with great service"
Pros: "Best airline I have ever flown"
Pros: "Vegetarian curry lunch/dinner was good. Cabin temperature was good. Bathroom was clean."
Cons: "flight crew were snippy. Had to ask for tea in between meals. Was assigned a middle seat when there were so many empty seats. The idea that we had to pay for seat assignments."
Pros: "The trip thank God was not a long flight."
Cons: "Crew was not very nice unfortunately."
Pros: "My wife got travel sickness and the crew was very very nice to help her out by offering her a place to lie down and other offerings"

Cons: "not enough foot room."
Pros: "Only the crew was good"
Cons: "Ridiculous entertainment system - was impossible to watch a movie."
Pros: "Professional and polite crew and comfy seats."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, late as usual and with no organization of any sort. Terminal E in Zurich has no air conditioning, so you wait in heat and no air. Also who came up with the design to put toilets upstairs where you ave to go using small and crowded hallways."
Pros: "Staff was very polite"
Cons: "Our flight got cancelled and it was slow rebooking very confusing"
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: "Very friendly staff, a wide variety of entertainment options."
Cons: "I'm a pretty small person (5'4 and 110 pounds) and it was very hard for me to get comfortable. Not that you'd expect much out of an economy class seat."
Cons: "Narrow feeling seat"
Pros: "Excellent inflight experience with the entertainment; snacks were plenty, crew was very efficient."
Cons: "Notithing to dislike comes to mind."
Pros: "Crew was great, polite and pleasant. This is the only good thing about the flight."
Cons: "The agent at the check-in had no clue what he was doing. He had to ask his neighboring agents a dozen questions to check us in (4 passengers, 3 bags and 2 car seats). On top of that, his whole demeanor was condescending, treating us as if we had never flown an airplane before. We are big are traveling light, so we had 2 small suitcases, small enough that we never have to check them in for the US domestic flights. I asked the check-in agent if the small ones were needed to be checked in or if they could be taken as carry-ons. He made a big deal that they were too big and had to be checked in. But when we boarded the plane, we saw that about a quarter of the carry-on bags in the plane were as big as our small suitcases! We were in row 30+. The leg room was the narrowest I have had in all international flights I flew in. Having longer than average legs, it was pure torture for the duration of the overnight flight. The best part of the dinner they served was the croissant - that should give you an idea. I don't think I would voluntarily choose Swiss Air again."
Cons: "They will not give you seat confirmation unless you pay , very annoying"
Pros: "Vegetarian option of the food. Constant hydration"
Pros: "Very polite and helpful crew. Nice selection of movies in-flight"
Pros: "Nice to have room to spread out. Amazing that a staffer in Greece managed to quickly rebook us on a different flight due to delays and the fear of missing our connection! The best!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. The movie system or user interface was clunky - nice variety of films but hard to find them and choose them."
Pros: "Drinks served on flight. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "I could put my seat down, the button wasn’t working.."
Pros: "Seat back tv’s"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours, food was mediocre at best"
Cons: "Delayed flight made me miss my connection and spend a night in Frankfurt. Take off time, bag didn’t come out as priority, waited over 25 minutes."
Pros: "Very comfortable. All very nice."
Cons: "Retrieval of my luggage in Boston took over 45 minutes. What good is it having Global Entry when other passengers behind me in Customs are getting their bags first?!?!?! Make good on my inconvenience Luftwaff."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Pros: "Aircraft, cleanliness, crew, food"
Pros: "i didnt take the first leg of the flight as i was visiting relatives in munich the day before"
Cons: "I was rebooked onto LU 1203 from Basel to Frankfurt from LU 1201 without notification. Probably because Flight LU 426"
Pros: "Everything was well organized and smooth"
Pros: "Very comfortable, amazing crew and service. Entertainment was very good with lots of options."
Pros: "There's nothing much that's positive to say about this leg of our journey."
Cons: "Not only was the flight delayed, but there was confusion at the gate for boarding of even first or business class. We had to carry our luggage down 2 flights of stairs to get on a bus, which then transported us a very long ways away on the tarmac. Then it was an older model plane and the engine noise, even though we were up front, was extremely loud! It was somewhat worrisome. The food was terrible and by the end of the 90 minute flight our rears were sore from the poor seat cushioning. Not a good experience at all. All of this was after a terrible experience and delay just trying to connect flights within the German airport and the security delays that probably would have made us lose our flight if it wasn't delayed. There needs to be a better system if you are not staying in Germany but just connecting flights from the same airline!"
Pros: "Very well organized."
Cons: "Not Lufthansa but United."
Pros: "Excellent service. They really brought around the drinks and food and seemed to be there when you were looking for more."
Pros: "Treated with kindness and courtesy by ground and cabin staff."
Cons: "There were 7 families each with multiple young children who screamed and misbehaved the whole trip. After complaining, the staff did nothing. Bad trip!"
Pros: "The Lufthansa crew is always wonderful as always."
Cons: "screaming and kicking child behind my seat, with no way to "escape". I had a severe cold and that was certainly not something I needed, I tried to get some rest, but that was impossible. The seats are getting smaller and smaller, hardly any legroom whatsoever. Also, what I had planned on bringing on the aircraft as carry on (which was my work equipment, tablet/printer etc), I had to check in as luggage because it was "overweight" meaning more than 8 kg and pay ADDITIONAL $200 (in addition to the $100 I already paid for one suitcase). I've seen many passengers with "heavy" carry on, which they were apparently allowed to bring into the cabin without any problems. I had never had to pay for any carry on, and I am seriously considering using another airline for future business travel."
Cons: "We had reserved our seats ahead of time but as we were boarding we were told that instead of sitting on row 4, we should seat at a row at the back of the plane. We were not notified ahead of time or or given an option. Flight attendants were refusing to help passengers and were actually rude to people who needed help to find a place for their luggage. Honestly, I didn’t expect this from Lufthansa and am very disappointed."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the food was good. Very uneventful, easy flight."
Cons: "Definitely not enough leg room"
Pros: "Service was very good, flight was very smooth"
Cons: "Website is very difficult to navigate and use."
Pros: "Really pampered."
Cons: "Baggage allowance was less."
Pros: "Drinks and great stewardesses"
Cons: "No phone charger."
Cons: "No special dish for kids food or atleast wasn't offered on the flight to us"
Pros: "free wine."
Cons: "Planes are old and cramped. Our plane gave us the "personal entertainment option" which meant you had to use your own device since they are too cheap to upgrade the planes. However, this international flight only had american plugs so anyone without an adapter was SOL. I tried to watch the large screen at the front of my section but they showed the movie Lion that is in Hindi and therefore had subtitles and I couldn't read the words from 12 rows back. The boarded process is like a cattle call. DO NOT FLY UNITED!!! I thought I was flying Lufthansa but it was a bait and switch situation."
Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly! Great variety of the newest movies. Toilets were always kept clean."
Cons: "Horrible food: over-salted and "mystery meat" for lunch; only given a small piece of bland cheese pizza for dinner and that was it. I suggest providing a small bottle of water for a long flight instead of a small cup of drink during the two meal times. I felt dehydrated during the flight (wasn't able to buy a bottle of water beforehand) and didn't want to keep buzzing the flight attendants repeatedly."
Pros: "Overall it was a great experience."
Pros: "Restrooms on lower level a first for us. No waiting or lines In aisles . Entertainment selection decent."
Cons: "Reclining in seats not adequate for sleeping; very difficult to be comfortable."
Pros: "caring attendants"
Cons: "some food"
Cons: "Flight was canceled with no prior notice and I am requesting a refund."
Pros: "The staff was quite good and they knew how to treat passengers well."
Cons: "Not really anything to complain about."
Pros: "For SFO portion only: Entertainment media was excellent. Free Wine was very nice touch. Breakfast meal was either sausages or pasta. A more traditional American breakfast choice would have been nice. Toilet facilities were clean & ample in size & spacious Plane was very nice except for leg room where I felt packed in like a sardine!"
Cons: "Flight seat leg space was inadequate!!! Seat width was narrow for my hips."
Cons: "I could not obtain in Frankfurt airport a boarding pass of my connection from Rio to Santiago"
Pros: "Nice plane and good crew."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Service, timeliness and new aircraft"
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight and the movies."
Cons: "I didnt like the crew, they was very caold and not pleasant at all. didnt like the food."
Pros: "The services, movie selection and food"
Cons: "My tv screen stopped responding 6 hours into the flight so that I could not watch it for the remaining 2.5 hours"
Pros: "I liked how I was taken advantage of, knowing it will never happen again"
Cons: "After having my ticket Inadvertently canceled didn't like the lack of support in purchasing a new ticket through Luftansia's customer service agents that deals with consolidators such as Kayak. In the end I was left not be able to buy a ticket for three days after being quoted a specific price and charged about triple the rate originally quoted it initially quoted I wasted valuable time into my vacation along with an amazing amount of stress ."
Cons: "I didnt like the food offered"
Cons: "the monitor at my seat did not work and I could not watch any movie. Everything else was fine."
Pros: "Flight on time, overall good."
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive in San Francisco which believe the problem started at the Malta airport. I was booked in as a stand by according to staff at SFO. I had booked my flight in Jan. with a seat assignment confirmed so not sure why I was booked in as a stand by passenger. Bag arrived to my home the day after I arrived home. Overall, good flight."
