Boarding process confusing
Baggage charge is nothing short of obscene, especially w/ lack of service provided
Check-in line was slow. Would have been helpful to have more agents. Everyone was very kind and helpful and the flight was short and easy.
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Good movie selection. Pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Six hour delay. They gave us $20 Franc voucher for food but in the airport a latte is 7.50 so 20 did not even buy a bowl of soup."
Pros: "Crew was attentive to passenger needs in a quiet way: without fanfare, did all possible to make it a pleasant, comfortable trip. In fact, went out of their way to get me a wheelchair ride to next flight, which I dearly needed"
Cons: "First flight was delayed due to circumstances outside of airline’s control. They managed to get us there and help me with wheelchair, etc to make flight. Great service and kindness"
Cons: "Check in was annoying in Paris as we had to go to ticket counter, and then go to a different counter to pay for luggage. Annoyed in the first place to have to pay for 2 checked bags on international flight, but to have to go into three separate lines in order to do so was pouring salt into a wound."
Cons: "Difficult if not impossible to sleep in coach"
Pros: "We left on time, arrived on time. Flight went well despite lasting over 10h30"
Cons: "Two of the flight attrendants in our area were in a bad mood and it showed."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "The flight itself was pleasant. But a 3 hour delay, because of technical issues on the incoming flight from Geneva? Why didn’t they send another aircraft?"
Cons: "the seat did not reclined, it was broke. travel with my wife on different seat my wife had a broken knee and they assigned a seat smack in the middle of the isle and she told me she almost past out because she could not move I had a passenger in the back that was kicking my seat every few minutes and I woke up every time I went to sleep"
Pros: "Loved the food, the comfort, the movies and the staff. They took EXCELLENT care of my bike, which I traveled with, and they we traveled safely to Switzerland!"
Cons: "Nothing. It was a quick and easy trip!"
Pros: "Both times I flew with Swiss airlines it’s been great! Food is pletntiful, staff is very kind."
Pros: "Good product"
Cons: "Seat had some problems, but the crew fixed it for me"
Pros: "Checkin was smooth, cabin crew and service was great. Absolutely no complaints."
Cons: "Nothing. All was exceptionally good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes. Not once did we hear an apology. They also changed the gate on us last minute and didn’t communicate. We discovered accidentally"
Pros: "The entertainment and food was very good. I also think having fresh fruit available in between meals is one of the most appealing things about SWISS."
Cons: "For some reason, one of the air hostesses refused to let me use the restroom. For over five hours I tried to use the restroom and she kept yelling at me to sit back in my seat, in spite the fact that several other people were using the restroom and several other people were up and moving about, she singled me out and wouldn't let me get up without harassing me. Eventually I appealed to another one of the flight crew who allowed me to urinate, but it was over five hours I had to pee and was inexplicably not allowed to."
Pros: "Online check-in was easy, boarding was smooth, and time on the flight seemed to go by quickly. Seats were a little too close together in economy to fully relax but that's the nature of economy seating. The dinner was very tasty, crew was friendly."
Cons: "My seat-back entertainment system did not work, but I had not planned to use it anyway. For the other three members of my family it did work, but not very well. Fortunately they had other options they brought with them."
Pros: "Nice experience."
Cons: "Seats are not so comfortable. Crew is nice, but not too nice"
Cons: "It was a 2 hour 40 minute flight. No entertainment."
Pros: "Friendly service and food"
Cons: "Older plane with no entertainment"
Pros: "staff was very nice"
Pros: "Excellent food. Lovely service. Departure and boarding on time."
Cons: "No entertainment at all. Very limited leg room"
Pros: "Friendly and high quality service"
Pros: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Cons: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable considering they were middle seats. The food was quite good and the entertainment selection was also good."
Cons: "Boarding was later than initially said and I did not know why"
Pros: "Good space above seats"
Cons: "Seats way too tight. But the worst thing was the two passageners in the row we shared. They were laying on each other and it was inappropriate for the entire flight. He was rubbing her breast and I said something. He seemed to stop. Lots of rubbing and huggin and the man had his legs stretched out man spread style"
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 next best thing to the hard-working and kind crew was the lighting design. Meals were OK, and I was delighted that the vegan meals I ordered for my travel companion were right there as ordered. Not a common occurrence of late, I’m afraid, so I congratulate Swiss one getting this one right."
Cons: "Legroom is non-existent. This was by far the most uncomfortable aircraft I have ever flown on, with the possible exception of an Ilyushin 62 operated by Tarom in 1983. I felt bad for the man in front of me, with my knees in his back. That is, until he reclined his seat and put my video screen in my face. Not much to watch anyway, but it was impossible to lean forward at all. Boarding at JFK was rather chaotic."
Pros: "The food was good and the crew was nice."
Cons: "No entertainment offered and the seats were cramped."
Cons: "Seats too small/legroom."
Pros: "I was concerned the connections would be too tight but it worked out great!"
Pros: "Loved the crew and movie options, the hydrating must in the bathroom was awesome!"
Cons: "I wish the seats were more comfortable"
Pros: "The flight attendants were perfect and very professional. I had a toothache on both flights back and forth. And on both flights, the crew members were always keeping an eye on me. Thanks so much. And also the pilots did an amazing job on making the flight as smooth as possible, love the 777! Thank you Swiss. I'm flying again to Athens this summer, I'm going with Swiss :)"
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: "Crew was amazing. So patient and accommodating, even when passengers were a bit impatient. Cabin was clean, and it was good to have blankets and pillow on a long flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Food was okay but not substantial. Comfort was terrible in my seat - for some reason I had a seat with a metal box underneath so I could not stretch my legs. And the fellow next to me, in the middle, was over 6 feet and was VERY uncomfortable, even though he had legroom. There were good options for entertainment, but it was unreliable and had to be restarted once. Also, the screen was terrible quality and I could not see no matter how I adjust the screen angle or the light."
Pros: "everything, the crew, the journey, the food and the entertainment as well"
Cons: "Seats in Economy are too tight. There's no room to move, and if the person in front of you leans back, the seat is inches from your face. In an emergency, the instructions are to lean forward with your head on your knees. This maneuver is impossible."
Cons: "I paid for a seat on the aisle with extra leg room. Seat 24D. There was only minimal foot space because of some type of metal box under seat 23D. I don't think that I should had to pay $45 for the extra leg room just to receive cramped foot space."
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "I have been flying to Asia on Asian airlines and maybe I have become accustomed to flights and crews that know how to manage a long flight. For example: The crew seemed tentative and untrained. Saw the crew once between the meal at beginning and the meal at the end. I wonder where they can hide for so long on a small plane? Too many announcements by the Captain -- shut up and fly the damn plane! Do you think the crew might replenish the toilet paper on an 8 hour flight? on another note: Seat spacing is adjustable - very close seats Overall--- underwhelmed"
Pros: "Entertainment and food were excellent, and the crew was pleasant and helpful. The small extras were delightful - i.e. warm cloths at the end of the flight! Overall, I think Swiss is a very good airline."
Cons: "On a long flight like this, the seating is still too cramped. We are not large people, and nine hours in those seats is difficult, even with considerate 'neighbors'. The seats are just too close together. This is an airport comment - Deboarding to a bus, then a walk to the train/tram, then security, then another walk to the gate - we barely made our connecting international flight."
Cons: "Confusion at boarding due to delay & Difficult to hear announced in the crowd & noise."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Again, boarding was chaos. No special boarding for star alliance gold member."
Pros: "Everything is perfect!"
Pros: "food, staff."
Cons: "We left late so I missed my connecting flight in Zurich, to barcelona. Had to wait around 5 hours. My friends were waiting for me in BCN and had no way to contact them!!! I enjoyed the flights with SWISS but i dont know if ill fly with them again."
Pros: "Excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "The boarding process for the economy class seems a little chaotic since there is no distinctions by zone or seat row. The result is a surge of people right when they announce boarding for that cabin."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, and also very skilled so that their service was unobtrusive, graceful, and helpful. They took great care to get people what they wanted, and I saw them fulfill a few special requests from the people around me politely and quickly. The entertainment selections were good. The variety of interesting musical selections allowed me to go the whole flight without running down the battery on any of my own musical devices. The seat space was comfortable, especially compared to domestic flights I've taken for the last 10 years. The enforcement of carry-on luggage rules meant the overhead compartments were sufficient for what was brought aboard and people weren't filling the foot-space with bags."
Pros: "Crew fine"
Cons: "Headsets did not work"
Could not get boarding pass on kine for this segment. Boarding process chaotic. Needs better staff intervention.
The crew are discriminated me!
Travelling with a baby is always challenging, it was further challenging when your upfront reserved seats were changed without you being given any notice and you are a Gold Star Alliance customer.
2 hours delay on the plane causing is to miss our connection
Pros: "Price, food was fine,"
Cons: "The staff was super aggressive to put all handbags under the seat even with empty compartment bins. Once the big bags are in why should they be so mean of the compartments are still empty?"

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. There was no organization as to the line."

Pros: "Service was excellent, planes left on time and arrived on time or early."

Pros: "Accurate times"
Cons: "Night travelling"
Pros: "Friendly staff and excellent onboard service"
Cons: "There was a slight delay with the boarding process. We were bussed from the terminal to the plane on the tarmac and were held on the bus for several minutes while maintenance workers sorted things out with the crew. We were finally allowed to board the plane after the maintenance crew had left. The entire plane from front to back had a terrible smell, as if the sewage pipe had burst and liquid/waste flowed everywhere. The smell may or may not have anything to do with the maintenance crew on board and delayed our boarding. No explanation of the smell. Good thing it was a short flight from Athens to Naples"
Pros: "-professional staff - on time"
Cons: "- lack of entertainment"
Pros: "First flight from OTP to Athens arrived late. Crew members awaited at security check and had a bus waiting just for my baby and I to take us to the plane."
Pros: "They give you a hot meal, even on a short flight."
Cons: "Their dimensions for carry on luggage are smaller than the industry norm. As such, bags that most any other airline would consider carry on, must be checked for 40 Euros on Aegean."

Cons: "delay in disembarking as well as baggage collection"

Cons: "Same as on the flight to Larnaca"
Cons: "I had to pay for the lugedge though I thought I ordered a ticket with 20 kg"

Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "first they announced 10 min delay, then they could not find the crew, after they appeared delay was extended to 45 min we left about 50 min late. gained some time in flight and arrived 35 min late. first batch of luggage came out relatively early and then there was a break of over 20 min before the luggage started to come out again, just as if somebody decided to have a coffee break."
Pros: "Accommodating staff"
Cons: "Chaos in the airport (where to wait in line, online check in vs drop off line etc)"
Pros: "I was surprised about the food, it was exellent."
Cons: "The ticket didnt specify the type of economy class so we had to pay for extra baggage"
Cons: "We arrived 45 minutes late to destination."
Cons: "Out of the control of Aegean the airport in Athens needs a lot more structure and organization. At times I thought I was to miss my flight because the amount of people."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence, 30 mins delayed, no drinks offered. Nobody came around to collect trash"
Pros: "It was inexpensive therefor I didn't expect much although I got more than I paid for!"

Cons: "The hot shuttle bus. They really need to turn on the air conditioning!"
Pros: "A staff member took us to our connection flight and she made us run for 30 minute. It was terrible. I am 55 and i could not breath and my body hurt and i am at bed con not move. My trip is destroyed. I am very very angry. It is impossible what she did. She didn't care at all that there were people that stop running and lost their flight. She didn't walk fast, she run hard. It was crazy, there people who cried. People who fall down. Absolute the worst thing that I have to go through"
Horrible seats. Boarding with a bus? We didn’t pay for low cost.
Rude staff late departure uncomfortable seats no entertainment
More space . Several delays , boarding process and security extremely disorganized and time consuming
Everything went very smoothly.
There was no food. I’m not sure if that is due to Covid restrictions or just cutting corners, but I was disappointed.
I flew business class. But nothing compare to business class. Lounge closed in Vienna. Not exist at all in Tel Aviv. Priority boarding not exist in Tel Aviv despite available business counter. Nobody in front of me was checked in to Business or with Senator status. No welcome drinks. All overall awful experience.
Pros: "Nice service easy flight"
Cons: "Hot, ridiculously warm on the plane"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Hi am happy"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and particularly one of the girls was always giving her best"
Pros: "For short flight the seats are ok with space for the legs"
Cons: "The flight was 30 minutes delayed"
Pros: "Good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Seat could be more comfortable"
Cons: "Staff is not friendly, does not offer assistance or ask if you need anything."
Pros: "Arrival to the terminal was a breeze, and security was fast and efficient. What more can a traveler ask for?"
Cons: "The executive lounge was a bit crowded. But if that is my only complaint, that’s not too bad. A well designed airport!"
Cons: "Hand luggage not allowed onboard due to being just a bit oversized -- just its wheels only. Never had this problem with the same luggage with other airlines, only with Austrian."
Pros: "Seats more comfortable."
Cons: "Flight left late. Unboarding took a long time. Didn't hold connecting flight, missed it. Now on 5 hr wait and may miss airport transit."
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, business class seats that lay flat"
Cons: "Rang twice for attendants when I dropped my phone behind the seat. Instructed at beginning of flight to not attempt to retrieve an item behind the seat and to have an attendant helped. No one responded to me, so I got it myself. Wasn’t a big deal, but I don’t appreciate being soundly ignored"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, courteous and helpful"
Cons: "Always an issue getting in/out of planes at Frankfurt. It takes a long, crowded bus ride to the terminal."
Pros: "Plane, pilots and the leader of the crew"
Cons: "The flight attendant in the back needs to be more educated"
Pros: "Nothing so far"
Cons: "Our luggage did not make it in a 2nd flight. We had to fill out many many many oaoers st Odessa airport It took 1,5 hours & our ride to hotel did not wait for us & left. Some other taxi driver gave ya a ride & charged ys $50 rather than $20 that ya the cost of our reserved ride. When we got to our hotel, we had to pay $20 for the transfer to hotel even though he left. Now we have no toothbrush or any change of clothes & hopefully we will get our luggage tomorrow after 2pm"
Pros: "Great food. Exceptional service. Clean airplane and toilets. The whole flight was smooth and comfortable. And we were in coach!!!"
Cons: "All was great."
Pros: "The cabin and gate crew provided a very friendly atmosphere. At the gate, the staff were very efficient in getting passengers on board despite the 20-30 minute delay. During the flight, attendants did a good job making sure meals were on time and drinks were offered often."
Cons: "Since the plane clearly came from another destination, the cleaning crew at Vienna International Airport could have taken some more time to vacuum the floor and wipe down the surfaces in the passenger cabin of the aircraft."
Cons: "May bags didn't make the transfer and were sent on to me the following day."
Pros: "Macedonian staff were very helpful when I arrived early to get me checked in and situated"
Cons: "it was canceled and i still waiting for refund so i did get ticket on vayama how i get email from kayak"
Cons: "The business class was not really business class, I guess a 3 hour Business Class flight doesn’t have a seating configuration t Like the new A321. With all said Austrian Air is on the top of its field,"
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "we had some delay, and they did not inform us at all how long this will take. so this is something ot work on."
Pros: "Plane was half empty, so we could sleep on three middle seats"
Cons: "I would expect more (and better) food for 9 hour intercontinental flight"
Cons: "Our flights there were postponed causing us to miss out connecting flights, we rescheduled with a different airline. The same thing happened coming home. Austrian was a complete disappointment going there and back."
Pros: "That it is over"
Cons: "Check-in to Canada not possible when passengers have third country passport and Canadian residence card. A combination, although very common, proofed to difficult for AUA personnel. Because of check-in delays lousy seats and miserable overall experience."
Cons: "I can not afford first class tickets..."
Pros: "I will never travel with Austrian airlines again"
Cons: "My flight was cancel,then they transfer me to swees airlines they checked me in they took my luggage and then they told me I can't travel coz I can't make 2 stops inside the Europe. I have to wait 1 hour and 30 minutes to fine my bags . I went back and forth from terminal 1 and 4 many times.The changed my flight to turkey airlines and I wait 9 more hours at airport to check in again. Terrible experience ☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️"
Pros: "Professional and friendly staff"
Cons: "Outdated interior, media interface"
Pros: "they asked me if I wanted an upgrade to business class - nice"
Cons: "they left all the lights on in the plane - difficult to sleep at night. Never had this happen before. Another lady from N.J., originally from SLovakia and going to Kosice for a visit complained about the same thing. SHe was worn out and so am I."
Cons: "We booked Austrian Airlines to Kosice for 6 to play a concert for 3,000 on Thursday night. 4 of our group arrived from ZRH; 2 from LHR. LHR-VIE was late; we ran and arrived in time catch VIE-KSC before it left, but Austrian Air would not allow us to board, despite that the other part of our travel party was already on the plane and alerted both gate staff and on-board staff we were coming and wee had to play a show that night with Arch Enemy. We had to wait 10 hours in VIE & given €12 for food. AA cited "rotational issues". Shockingly, Austrian Air delayed the 2nd flight by another hour "to wait for someone". We had to cancel the show. Really angry"
Cons: "I specifically selected three seats for my Wife and two children ages 7 and 5. I did not fly back with them and at check in the three seats were confirmed on a boarding pass printed at their departure location. Upon checking in on the connecting flight in Vienna, the seat assignment had been completely disregarded and three seats located 10+ aisles apart were given to a family traveling together??????? This makes no sense and must be due to booking through a third party. Unacceptable and not worth the $40 per ticket savings."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed. Food selection was poor."
Pros: "I fly this route on Austrian 5 times a year, and I nearly always choose Austrian because it hast the overall best 'package' - a comfortable plane with excellent sleeping seats in business class, the best airline food in the world from Do & Co, the nicest staff that really cares about your well being and the quickest connection between Bangkok and Vienna."
Cons: "The entertainment program is a bit slim, to my taste - but I'm not a big consumer of inflight movies, as I prefer to get more sleep when I fly. When compared to the entertainment program on Singapore Airlines, for example, Austrian's own can't really compete."
Pros: "Staff, seats (exit)"
Cons: "No screen,no entertainment, the food was very bad even for airlines food, for a 4 hours flight cancel the food and make a cheaper flight."
Pros: "Seats, crew, nice plane"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Random boarding,"
Pros: "Food, entertainment."
Cons: "Aircraft was older 777 and lavatories weren't very clean. Upon landing in Vienna, my mobility walker (tagged to be brought up to me at jetway) was sent to my connecting flight to Sophia. The flight crew refused to intercept it and have it brought up to me at the aircraft. To make matters much, much worse, the flight crew eventually gave up and left, leaving me LOCKED inside the jetway for over 30 minutes after calling for a wheelchair. The replentishment crew refused to let me out of the locked jetway. Only after the wheelchair arrived was I let out of the locked jetway. I was taken to the Austrian Airlines service center where I lodged a formal complaint. Supervisor/Rene refused to upgrade my seat in any fashion to compensate for my distress. He did, however, arrange for me to given access to the VIP lounge and then taken to my VIE-SOF gate. Had I had a shorter layover, I would have missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour after boarding to wait for passengers from another flight. I understand waiting 10-15 mins but one hour was way too long."
Pros: "My bag didn't make my connecting flight so I guess they upgraded me because of that. Exceptional service, food and comfort. Ground staff at Vienna and crew were wonderful."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed leaving Sofia which made connecting flights for many people a rush and very stressful. People were pulled to the front of the plane and told to rush to catch their flights. My bag didn't make my connecting flight but Austrian delivered it 2 days later."
Pros: "Everything seemed all right"
Pros: "I flew to Venice on Austrian Airlines to make a connection on an Air Canada flight to Toronto. When we debarked from the Austrian Airline onto the tarmac and picked up our luggage, I could find no signs indicating where to go for connecting flights, nor any signs indicating the gates of connecting flights. I was told that to make a connecting flight, I should go out to the main lobby of the airport, At the information desk they directed me to the Air Canada check in desk, where I found the check-in for my flight was closed. That was the the beginning of a nightmare chase to get to the plane to Toronto. I made it only because of the kindness of people in the check in, security and customs lines. Austrian Airlines should be kinder to its passengers making connecting flights. They seemed to abandon us passengers in a chaotic airport."
Cons: "I had no notification about luggage fee in airport upon registration."
Cons: "Flight to Vienna cancelled. Driven to Munich instead. 6 hour wait until flight to Nice. Arrived 8 hours later than scheduled."
Pros: "The flight was on time (actually arrived early). Everything was great, except for the seats and knee space, which was just ok - in line with every other company; that doesn't make it good. The entertainment unit was great, many options plus a charging USB port. Food was good; coffee was bad (instant) - is it that difficult to make good coffee on the plane? Crew was professional and efficient. Happy(ish) overall. Thanks."
Cons: "Considering that we’re in the middle of a pandemic no LH ground staff at Heathrow Airport was leading by example wearing protective equipment such as mask or gloves. Further, I found it inexplicably that almost every seat was taken on this flight. If LH knows that the flight is booked close to capacity I would have expected they do their part and due diligence by swapping to a bigger aircraft to help protect people and their customers, it’s not that they wouldn’t have other aircrafts grounded and ready to go... A reduced beverage service is all you can do, really? LH - very disappointing once again"
Pros: "Food was not available for flight."
Pros: "Very explanatory clear and responsive. There was a short delay they kept us informed clearly and responsibly. Excellent flight and superb performance. Very polite and helpful."
Pros: "All. The customers was good and nice"
Pros: "Travel is good and comfortable"
Cons: "Travel from Frankfurt to London was quite late start . Delay in immigration check."
Cons: "boarding was chaotic"
Cons: "Flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt delayed, when we arrived we had no chance of making our connecting flight to Split yet no one told us. No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."
Pros: "on time no hassle"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Pros: "All good - Lufthansa even handled an unexpected air traffic delay well, meaning my connection still worked. Great price too - booked at short notice and Lufthansa business was half the price of BA. Far better device too."
Cons: "No negatives."
Pros: "Fantastic staff excellent aircraft"
Cons: "5 hour lay over in Frankfurt. Sandwiches are all the same 2 choices on all aircraft"
Pros: "Flight info from Kayak was excellent and up-to-date, more so than the airlines."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Waiting in the line long then expect"
Pros: "All the full service airlines are pretty good in the air. But what sets apart Lufthansa is it's ground staff. On the previous occasion I had left behind my waist bag on the seat containing passports, cash and cards. Their lost and found desk retrieved it quickly, absolutely intact. On the last occasion, my mother in law, who is over 85 was taken care of very well at not only Delhi but especially at the Frankfurt airport. I must truly acknowledge young lady Jessica's efforts, in ensuring that everything was handled very caringly by her personally, for an old lady at the Frankfurt airport."
Pros: "Stuttgart to Frankfurt was good.. ."
Pros: "Welcoming from the crew"
Cons: "Take off was very scared"
Pros: "I like everything about Lufthansa in terms of quality and service"
Cons: "Punctuality. I fly lufthansa twice a week and I have yet to fly on time. There are always a delay."

Pros: "Nothing. It was ok at best which is fine on a good day."
Cons: "Flight out was late due to the bus being late picking up the crew. We had to run for our connections. On the way back we were delayed again , leaving 20 minutes to make our connection. Security at Frankfurt was so poor. Of the potential number of lines available, there were only two operating despite the number of passengers, most of whom were late for their connections. It took us over 30 minutes to get through. Luckily the connecting flight was delayed over an hour."
Cons: "The flight was delayed . When we arrived in Frankfurt, there was a quie of 200m . After waiting 10 minutes, they asked us to go to other passport control . We had to walk onother 10 minutes to get there ."

Pros: "The flight was full. service, food and entreatment was excellent"
Pros: "The business cabin was excellent for a European airline."
Cons: "Weather delay caused us (and hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of other travelllers) to miss connections. Lufthansa lost our luggage, and to get rid of us, told us they would send it to the hotel we had to check into on account of the overnight delay. They never delivered the luggage, and other employees later told us over the phone that this was not going to happen. The terminal was filled with tired and frustrated travelers, and to make matters worse, the Lufthansa staff were temperamental and condescending to many. At the peak of the chaos, the Lufthansa staff went out on break, while hundreds waited in line for over 8 hours. We expected more - much more - in one of Lufthansa’s own German domestic hubs."
Cons: "It took ages to go through the security check, although I have mentioned that I have a flight connection that is due to leave nobody gave a s..t, so I missed my flight. Now I’m waiting at the airport"

Cons: "Incorrect advice from check in staff at Dublin re transit visa requirements"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with a very poorly set up e-mail. No alternative suggestions, no phone number where to call, nothing. Very unhelpful. When calling a phone number finally found on the internet there was a 40 min waiting loop, only to then have a very bored and annoyed sounding call attended who finally was able to rebook the flight. Overall very poor service, at the very least there should have been a guideline of what steps to take now in the cancelling of the flight E-mail and where to call."

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.

Mejor el servicio a los dominicanos
I do not know how, but, rude crew and counter personnel is here, rest of things looks pretty standard without any difference with other airlines, that was not the case in the past

Cons: "Many things cheaper does mean better."
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"
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. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... 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!"

Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "Service was great as usual. Food was very good and entertainment options were great so you won't have to be bored throughout the trip."
Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"

I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."

Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
