Cons: "I couldn't change seats on line I did prepay the baggage, printed the receipt, when I started checking in, they won,t honor their own reciept, they could not find my prepayment, the call center was no helpful, I had to pay again. The checking in agent placed myself and my wife far from each other, and the plane was half-empty"
Pros: "Modern, efficient, friendly, and economical (good price)"
Cons: "Very confusing regarding cost of checked bag, traveling with pet. Some airlines give option to select this ala carte on website and this seems most efficient way to make money for airline and make easy for customer. Please try this."
Cons: "Rude personnel, junk food, no entertainment system — S7 at its best"
Cons: "Cabin crew rude and unprofessional, they charged me for my baggage , the one I already paid for... total waste of time talking to anyone to get help from anybody from staff , and I believe most of the good reviews it’s a lie we all know how it can be done"
Pros: "Food The flight took less time than promised."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit delayed, but otherwise it was ok. I wish there was more legroom, it was not that bad though."
Cons: "I missed the flight and no flight and no flight for 3 days . I need to cancel thdvtighg on Aug. 6 fromStratopol to Moscow"
Pros: "Good new and clean airplane. Good meal"
Cons: "Boarding was poor"
Cons: "They did not let me board they moved me from gate to gate until finally i was able to fly but not to kazan"
Pros: "Good and organized airline"
Cons: "S7 check-in staff were not helpful nor friendly at all, I almost missed my flight because of misleading information I was provided by them."
Pros: "The attendants were Very Gracious"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and on time"

Pros: "Everything was fast."
Cons: "The plane was a bit cramped."
Pros: "Good service, organized, really good food, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Bad baggage policy. No entertainment."
Cons: "There was no S7 rep in Berlin Tegel airport and the agents in Frankfurt did not respond. So my son had to call us in the US to take care of the problem. We got hold of the agent through a US number, but no solution was offered other than simply buying a new ticket for a not so good price. I ended up getting no credit whatsoever and buying a new ticket on Finnair because the S7 offered a new ticket for two days later than the day on which they described event took place."
Cons: "Our son missed the outbound flight from Berlin, Germany, to St. Petersburg, Russia. The airline does not have any representation in Germany except in Frankfurt. He could not get hold of them by phone from Berlin, so we had to call from the United States. It turned out that we could not call S7 directly at all - instead we had to call Vyama. They told us that by missing the outbound flight, he also missed the inbound flight. Therefore, we had to buy a new ticket and pay whole price again for the flight two days later. This is not the practice that is used by other companies - which offer at least some credit."
Cons: "Задержали рейс более чем на 2 часа. Посадка была плохая."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, and the flight attendants were hardworking and attentive."
Cons: "The meals smelled so bad when the trolley went past that I actually thought it was a problem with the toilets. A roll, a slice of brown bread, no butter, a packet of ketchup, and a yellow jelly/jello with tiny pieces of canned pineapple suspended. The main course featured rice that somehow managed to be dry and overcooked at the same time, and a flavorless chicken patty. Our flight was nearly four hours late taking off, because the incoming flight required a replacement aircraft. We were promised a complimentary drink that never appeared. No entertainment on a four-hour flight, which is standard."
Pros: "All on time as expected"
Cons: "Could not check in online for utair"
Pros: "On time, no issues"
Cons: "No entertainment ,"
Pros: "Attendants where helpful and attentive. The Pravin was clean and it was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike for a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "Food Cabin crew's attention to children (even though it wasnot the case in a whole, see below) Impressing crew size - all very tall :))"
Cons: "Definitely missed some friendliness from the cabin crew, even though they were professional, just some kind words would not hurt"
Pros: "good crew, food was ok"
Cons: "no customer service, horrible rules, not organized at the gate and at check in. Will never fly s7 again."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive. They made me feel welcome."
Cons: "They waited on the other 3 people before me in Business class so the beef option was not available when it was my turn to be asked. I chose the fish and it was very very dry. The potatoes were dry too. The cake tasted old. I was disappointed with the food on this flight."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Delayed departure."
Pros: "Great-looking, efficient and pleasant stewardesses."

Cons: "Fare did not include a single piece of baggage on international flight! Misleading pricing"
Cons: "The food was so terrible. The craft in the bad condition"
Cons: "Check in took 1,5 hours, while the S7 who was operating the flight representative was just walking around and disturbing the airport employees which made check in slower. There was no space for the hand luggage inside the plane. Seems that it is too small for such flights. The crew was not nice at all. This is the worst flight experience I have ever had in my life. Flew with S7 around 10 years ago, when they were called Siberia Airways - nothing changed since then."
Pros: "The flight was on time, very clean cabin, the crew was pleasant, the luggage delivery was lightning quick."
Pros: "Punctuality and Arriving safely"
Cons: "Minimal leg room"
Pros: "thank you"
Pros: "Over an hour late for departure, but besides that and the screaming baby, the flight was OK."
Pros: "Best food ever."
Pros: "For flying economy, I thought the seat space was good - far better than their compatriot, Ural Airlines. The plane was clean, the flight was without incident."
Cons: "Nothing really: but I expect what I got flying economy. Wish they had an economy+. This is kind of a long flight not to have any form of entertainment; and maybe the plane should be larger. 6.5 hours."
