Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Carry on baggage size misleading"
Pros: "plane was clean"
Cons: "One hour delay. Last minute change of seats."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and polite."
Cons: "The plane was small, it rattled and shook a lot and the size of the seats is ridiculous. The bathrooms did not have warm water and the sense of comfort is to be found only in business and first class. We fly to Zurich a lot because we have family there and we always take SWISS for a direct flight. They have old planes, the little TVs by the seats may or may not work and although the crew is nice and well trained, they cannot substitute for the discomfort of 10 hours flights in a crammed place. Sorry SWISS."
Pros: "I thought my out flight with Lufthansa would be good but it was surpassed by the return flight with Swiss Based on my experience I believe Swiss should be a 5 star airline as well"
Cons: "A slight delay"
Pros: "Crew were amazing."
Pros: "I like service, plane..."
Cons: "I have anot her flight with the same airlines. I haven't took my ticket at the same time but since it's same airlines they should be able to connect my flights. I have to go borders and took my luggage and then I checked in again. This is waste of time"
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "Hard to see monitor for films and to hear through earpiece."
Pros: "Staff, food, on board entertainment all very impressive. Great flight."
Pros: "Always on time and professional crew!"
Pros: "A very friendly and attentive crew and a decent meal. Comfort is still iffy in coach but better than most American airlines. Good selection of movies to pass the time."
Cons: "Seats in coach are cramped and some have an electrical box under the seat in front of you, so there is no room for your legs or carry on bag. Bathrooms keep getting smaller to jam in more seats."
Cons: "Connecting flight cancelation, didn’t get to go."
Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "Almost missed my third plane, too."
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."
Cons: "Boarding started 20 mins late, once on board was moved to accommodate a family to sit together. No objection to them sitting together but how is it possible that they’re in that situation to begin with. Flight was overbooked so crew offering cash to delay for a later flight, which on a Sunday evening is an unappetising proposect"
Pros: "Clear, relatively comfortable plane. Free ski bag."
Cons: "Again, incredibly unhelpful re: my unusual situation. Flight attendants rigid and unkind to the woman next to me with a dog in a case. Almost like automatons. But that's typically Swiss, which I appreciate but they could definitely humanize a bit more!"
Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."
Pros: "All good with this 1:20 min flight."
Cons: "Everything was good. Seats much better and bigger comparing with international flight what should have been opposite - on longer flight - more comfortable seats than for the five times shorter flight."
Pros: "Courteous Staff Excellent Service and enough concern for the guests."
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: "I’ve flown SWISS Air twice in the past 6 years and I’ve never had an issue, always a great experience!"
Pros: "Swift ride - no frills- the chocolate square was delicious."
Cons: "Getting off directly onto the tarmac with no gate access- glad it wasn't raining!"
Pros: "The woman who checked in my baggage was very helpful and patient. I had to re-arrange some weight and she assisted me in maximizing weight and minimizing cost. The flight attendants we very kind in trying to assist me in finding appropriate food. The flight was very comfortable and the flight attendants were wonderful all-around."
Cons: "Boarding of the flight was delayed which impacted our arrival time in Zurich. I had a connecting flight- but so did at least 10 other Swiss flights at that time. The queues for customs were incredibly long and the only reason I made my flight was because I ran through the airport. I also had a challenging time with food. I am celiac and often cannot eat the standard fare on planes. I called in advance of my flight to notify someone of my allergy - and they told me the only way I could ensure such a meal was by purchasing a meal that cost $30. I was not willing to pay such a hefty surcharge for food because I had already payed a bit extra than budgeted because my partner had recommended the excellent service of Swiss. I have traveled on several airlines for intercontinental flights between Boston and Europe - and have always had my allergy accommodated at no extra cost. Once on the flight - I was offered an orange and banana for dinner and a small yoghurt for breakfast. I will be flying Swiss again in December and I sincerely hope they will be better equipped to provide for my dietary requirements."
Pros: "i'd like services and the food"
Cons: "Skopje airport personnel was very bad service ticket counter worst ever"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable (for a plane) and the staff were polite and efficient. The flight made up lots of time and the in flight snacks were very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed, and the communications from Swiss was lacking. In fact their app thought the flight had taken off and landed on time?!"
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."
Cons: "Our luggage was left behind in Zurich after an unnecessary gate check. There were plenty of room in the overhead bins, and we purposefully bought the luggage because they were sized for bin storage."
Pros: "Swiss has amazing crew. Incredibly polite and accommodating. Their food (for economy class seat) was very good to excellent. The new Boeing 777 is also a smooth plane to ride."
Cons: "The boarding process in Zurich was a free for all. There is not a "method" to their boarding (i.e. by row or zone) so all 300 passengers crowded around the gate. We paid $100 for exit seats but the seats were barely wide enough for me...a medium built thin male. Unfortunately this appears to be the trend. Swiss would do well to have a wide economy section."
Pros: "We sat at the exit passage and enjoyed it"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous; they fed us well"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "No space, bad video screens (especially important for a long flight with a 3 year old) with terrible image and sound quality, even with my good headphones."
Pros: "Friendly crew, decent meal, and above-average entertainment systems"
Cons: "Confusing boarding process, outdated and worn seats and technology, unable to select seats when booked as a United codeshare."
Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "my entertainment controller did not work and my daughters head phone plug would only half work."
Pros: "Everything was great. The staff did a really nice job at making us all feel comfortable and they were eager to help with our needs."
Pros: "Actually being able to breathe on this trip, as opposed to the first trip on your horrible planes."
Cons: "Being FORCED to spend extra money simply to be able to reserve the last row of two seats, in the faint hope of being able to achieve some level of comfort which was unattainable on the first flight. Having only two seats in our row and the one in front of us made the flight tolerable, but also enhanced the ludicrous ineptitude of the previous flight, wherein we were treated like so much livestock in a train car, heading for slaughter. I will never, NEVER, fly Swiss Air again."
Pros: "The ambient being so relaxing felt asleep all the way to Zurich."
Pros: "Very comfortable seats for coach, good service."
Pros: "zurich a great airport."
Cons: "cheese roll"
Cons: "On my return journey I was told at check in that there were delays that would mean missing my onward journey from Zurich. I was then rerouted through Istanbul with the promise that I would be well compensated for my troubles. I was told that I would receive a certain amount for every hour I was delayed from my original arrival at end destination. Well I arrived 8 or more hours after I had originally expected (and the reason I booked with Swiss Air was because of the timing and the apparent luxury of the flight). Once I got back home and tried to pursue this amazing compensation I received some of the worst customer service ever and received 0 compensation for the experience. Very disappointed and will never fly swiss airlines again."
Cons: "Didn't find anything."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Make sure they check the flight before they make passengers aboard like my seat, I had to travel for 10 hours in same position & even flight attendants couldn't help because the flight was packed I understand but I did suffer"
Cons: "The lack of food choices. Even if you must buy them tgere should be choices"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good food and entertainment. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "There is little that can be done to make a long haul flight comfortable when a baby is screaming and crying for it's entire duration. Its behaviour cannot be helped. But it certainly didn't make the flight comfortable, nor did the young child kicking incessantly at the back of my and my daughter's seats. This could have occurred on any flight, but it didn't contribute to having a positive experience on this one. The flight attendant serving breakfast completely ignored that fact that I was awake and strolled past without asking if I would like anything as meals were being served. I informed another flight attendant that we hadn't been offered breakfast and she was able to provide us with meals. Besides this the cabin crew were courteous and pleasant. I've flown with Swiss on other occasions and have had better experiences. I'd like to think this was just a one off and not representative of the level of service that Swiss normally provides."
Pros: "I have a moderate fear of flying and our plane experienced turbulence while passing through some clouds. I asked the flight attendant if everything was okay, and he smiled and explained that there was some rain on the way to Switzerland. I really appreciate when the crew takes the time to explain what is going on. Knowing what to expect helps me deal with my fear. Because of the flight attendant's willingness to explain the details of our flight, I felt more comfortable during the remainder of the trip."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Pros: "Got upgraded to business class and had the best flight of my life!"
Cons: "For such a LONG flight, grateful to ask Turkish Airlines to make available bigger aircrafts."
Pros: "Yes.The crew was amazing"
Cons: "To have a variety of foodstuffs especially the soft drinks. Hot Tea wasn't really hot.Just warm."
Pros: "Entertainment, and crew was nice"
Cons: "Seats and food. I had a dietary restriction (no dairy). But instead of giving me poached chicken and boiled potatoes be more creative and put more flavour. It’s lactose free not flavour free"
Pros: "Reliable, high quality service"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic"
Cons: "Prices please low and cheaper"
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "They pack biz seats in 7 across. Most airlines go with 6 across. Lack of space and they charge the same as other airlines. Low value for the money charged. Much better value using if you use any other airline."
Cons: "Boarding. The gates were cheep changing. Poor room between seats."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Pros: "All around quality Airline..."
Cons: "being treated like a drug dealer at the boarding gate #312 and having passport / boarding pass checked several times"
Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."

Pros: "Everything was well taken care of."
Cons: "When boarding the flight from Turkey, to Mumbai , we had to climb up the ladder with our hand luggage.Being senior citizen and traveling in Busniss class was very hard for us."
Pros: "Comfortable and uneventful flight - just the way it should be!"
Cons: "I was selected to seat near the window before departure dare unfortunately i found my self in the middle of the people, so dissapointed"

Cons: "If you sit the the second cabin on the 777 they run out of buns and champagne by the time they get to you which is unacceptable for business class and they only finished the meal service 2 and a half hours into a 10:30 pm departure flight which is way too slow. They tried to lie to me that they didn't have champagne but I saw them opening 2 bottle when I went to the front lavatory. Between meal services crew is non existent."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "hostesses not so courteous"
Cons: "Didn't get to Instanbul or my destination of Budapest. There were mechanical Issues that I was told were weather issues. I was delayed over 12 hours, missed two connections and given the runaround about getting a place to stay for the night. The shuttle service provided took another hour at 2am! $47 to cover four meals and no mention of flight credit on my first leg for the HUGE inconvenience. A direct flight to Budapest a 27 hours after the fact is the best they could do and wanted to charge me a change fee too!! My vacation is cut short by this mess and my travel companions already in country are waiting on me to get their trip started. I will not be using Air Canada or Turkish air until they can communicate between one another and provide at least average customer service. So, it's safe to say that it will be the 12th of NEVER when I fly Air Canada"
Cons: "It never happened."
Pros: "Cabin crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was mediocre. Seats were extremely crowded. Person in middle seat was large, causing over-crowding because he required more than his seat. I didn't check out the entertainment, as I didn't know how to use the electronics."

Cons: "Seats not to comfortable but can't really change that without upgrade."
Cons: "Noticed that you made NO announcement that you were boarding the plane whatsoever both to London and on return. NONE"

Cons: "Seat size! Boarding queues"
Pros: "Everything, fast boarding, good experience overall, turkish airline provides good services for very affordable price, i am pleased"
Cons: "Airport is huge, the walk to gate 701 was long, i thought i would never get there...i think they should arrange some kind of transportation to gates like 701"
Pros: "Very helpful and respectfull crew"
Cons: "Boarding started 20 mins after the designated time"
Pros: "Turkish airlines crew & service are excellent especially if you compare it to those of many other airlines."
Cons: "Courtesy of the crew & good old fashion meal service. Also the entertainment on board."
Pros: "Crew is very friendly. The plan is very clean and designed well and fashioned. The entertainer movie is good but the not all the shows."

Pros: "Nice crew, clean seats, good food..."
Cons: "TERRIBLE customer service, barely spoke English over the pho ne. Bought the tickets on April 1 and immediately called to make a reservation for my dog. They made the reservation. Couldn't answer regulations for transporting pets, had to dig up rules and regulations online myself. Made a reservation the same day for the dog and they never sent a confirmation. Went to their office at Pearson and they had no clue as well. Two days before the flight they called to tell me my dog can't fly due to unknown reasons and created a MAJOR nightmare. I paid $400 for papers and cage for the dog only. Very very unprofessional and will NEVER fly with Turkish Airlines again!!!"

Pros: "The crew was friendly. The seating was ok but dirty floors"
Pros: "Very Organised and punctual"
Pros: "Everything except delay"
Pros: "It was not immediately apparent that boarding was in a completely different terminal which was accessible by train, so this lack of info could have cost me arriving in good time as I thought I had sufficient time. I aldo found ground staff at the customer service desk very unsympathetic and unhelpful when I asked for assistance on grounds of ill health. They were quite condescending ."
Cons: "Ground staff poor customer service"

Cons: "Space was limited"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, great seats in economy with lots of legroom."
Cons: "Be on time"
Cons: "food screens"
Pros: "The flight was adequate."
Cons: "Sandwich was extremely unappetising and there were no hot drinks. The worst thing was that in transiting from the SAA flight to the Lufthansa flight we were obliged to go through security which seems unnecessary. The security staff were awful. Bullying, rude and totally unsympathetic to the fact that having brought water from the first plane to the second plane we had to either drink it or throw it away. One guy in particular, a tall greying man evoked the worst stereotypes of brutal secret policemen. Perhaps he formerly worked for Stasi or he was having testosterone problems. Totally unacceptable behaviour."
Cons: "1hr 20 minutes late"
Pros: "Red wine was OK, passed on the free sandwich as last time it didn’t agree with me"
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late and no compensation from the airlines."

Cons: "Rest of the flight was bearable nothing write about. Typical cheap alow cost flight"
Pros: "Air Canada is a great airline too"
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and this is consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The salami sandwich provided was actually very good."

Pros: "The staff were all super helpful and friendly! Pleasure to fly with!"
Pros: "the on time scheduled departure"
Cons: "the long complicated walk to terminal"
Pros: "All the staff were friendly and the complimentary food and drink snacks was lovely."

Pros: "Usual good service for economy class on this airline"
Cons: "Refusal to board as our flight was a few minutes landing"
Cons: "New plane. Very little legroom. New seat back pouches hold next to nothing."

Cons: "Had to get a replacement plane when the first one had issues."
Cons: "2 hours late"
Cons: "lastminute.com was completely unhelpful in assisting with any changes to my itinerary. They repeatedly provided me with incorrect information that sent me on a wild goose chase."
Cons: "Boarding tool a long time and late take off"
Pros: "Stewards dis perfect job"
Pros: "I like the airline and the workers are great. I don't like when they charged for luggage that $60.00 each way like round trip is $120.00. It should be by weight is 50 lbs or 23 kilo for minimum and if it is over the weight than it should charged little more price."
Pros: "Everything about the United Airlines portion of the trip was terrific: lots of food & drinks; good entertainment system; good seats even in economy. United really stepped up their game."
Cons: "The seats on the Austria Airlines portion of the trip were very close together & very minimally structured (little padding, depth etc.)"
Pros: "In flight crew worked hard"
Cons: "No lines for boarding - it was a mess And randomly we were asked to check in our bags though Austrian crew had earlier tagged them for carry on"
Pros: "The hotel was nice although I was unable to sleep due to the delays all around concerning my connecting flight. I am thoroughly upset because I contacted the airlines 3 times in May to express my concern with the 30mins layover. And to no avail. My worst concerns are being played out now. It appears that their isn’t any concern from the airlines about this catastrophe impacting so many people. Shame on you."
Cons: "The connecting flight departed before the first flight landed. Then I was given the wrong information of gate departure by airport personnel. After running like crazy to find this gate for departure, the plane had already departed before we even landed. There wasn’t anyone around to help, and finally I found an airport worker who gave me the same incorrect information. She was as perplexed as was I. Finally, she directed me to the information booth where I was booked in a flight the next day. The food voucher was insufficient to cover dinner, i had to pay out of my pocket but I was frugal given the financial situation. The taxi service personnel were rude and it took a long time to taxi me to the hotel where I am unable to sleep because I have an early morning g departure. All in all, between the airport delays getting me to the hotel, lack of proper food and treatment by personnel, I am exhausted and lost sleep in the process."
Pros: "entrance with classical music! staff was friendly. probably in top 5 flights"
Pros: "Great to be able to check in bags at the CAT railway station in the morning. Cabin crew were excellent- very friendly and helpful and did two drinks services. Austrian’s cabin crew sets them apart on European routes."
Pros: "I get Airpoints with the flight, crew were lovely."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, so a few delays (as they were asking if anyone would layover to release a seat) and they were being very strict on the one bag per traveller, but that’s fair enough considering it was busy."
Pros: "Liked all except the food"
Cons: "Did not like the food. I specifically selected vegeterian meal however was served vegan meal which I did not enjoy"
Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "I could not reserve seats via Kayak, through whom the flight was booked. I paid extra for seat reservations, about $30 for a plain economy seats, to Austrian Airlines."
Pros: "We had a very tight connection but there was no problem. With only 30 minutes between arrival and departure our checked bags still made the flight."
Cons: "Poor announcements"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Service was great, the stewardess's were very professional and very caring without being too personal which is great for me .Every was done quickly and professionally with a great sense of efficiency and purpose .Hard to explain but so different from other airlines . Multimedia was phenomenal"
Cons: "Food portions were smallish but acceptable .Seat reservation service got totally mixed up ,reserved one seat and got another .Maybe software glitch ,needs to be fixed."
Pros: "The check in crew were great. They checked my overweight carry on with no problem for free Free alcohol"
Cons: "The food was not edible"
Pros: "Flight attendants were extremely friendly and considerate of passenger needs. In flight Wi-Fi is free in economy. Good leg space between the rows. Overall it's rare to find such good service now a days."
Cons: "While going to the gate G11 at Vienna airprt, i slipped infront of the gate in presence of 3 male austrian airways staff who were checking there. After i got up i requested if i could get some water and they said they cannot. Finally a co passenger gave me her bottle of water. I ended up actually breaking my leg"
Pros: "The flight in General. Small space with a large audience make things smaller. It's not a flight where one can relax. Grueling."
Cons: "Breakfast was just a sandwich and yogurt. Is this standard Austrian Breakfast?"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Lateness and virtually no food at lunchtime"
Pros: "The flight was nowhere near full, which was terrific. The crew were excellent, polite and attentive. Everything was on time."
Cons: "I don't remember anything about the food."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment included so many mediocre films, with hardly a classic among them. I suppose those are cheaper, but I would think both Austrian and Lufthansa (they seemed to be using almost identical entertainment systems with almost identical offerings) would benefit from limiting their movie options much more towards movies with, say, above a 70% Rotten Tomatoes rating or above average box office sales. Even if they had fewer films, say 40 instead of 56, the ones they have would be more popular."
Cons: "Complete lack of information and abrupt staff when flight was delayed"
Cons: "When I was boarding all representatives was very unfriendly and I would say they were rude."
Pros: "Great staff, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "As I was flying from London Heathrow back to Vienna, I had a carry-on that was allowed on my flight with Austrian from Vienna to London. My carry-on weighed 8 kg, like is required by the rules. While boarding my flight, the woman at the counter told me my bag had to be checked because there were too many carry-ons on the flight. I asked her that I keep my bag because I had medication in there, and she didn't listen to me at all. She just kept repeating that i have to check my bag, and then took my bag from me and gave it to the baggage crew there. I didn't want to make a huge scene because the flight is only 2 hours and I hoped i Could deal without my medication during that time, but I found it incredibly, incredibly rude and awful to not listen to a passenger."
Cons: "Give me some knee room. I'm only 5 10 - What happens to the tall people?"
Pros: "Pleasant flight crews on all flights."
Cons: "Cramped seating in coach."
Cons: "The delay in take-off"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the entertainment was okay."
Cons: "It was impossible to make a seat reservation--impossible. When I asked Air Canada they said contact Austrian Airlines. When I asked them they said get in touch with United. Then I was told I could book a seat 24 hours in advance. When I got email I couldn't--said I had to do it at the gate. When I got to the gate I was told I had a seat in the middle of the plane. Not true I was at the back of the plane. Just awful"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and fine. No problem with boarding etc"
Cons: "The seat comfort and closeness of the passengers is terrible. And makes for a stressful and painful flight."
Cons: "Thay did not let us in the plane because they changed the name order on the ticket"
Pros: "Service was spectacular. The United crew was awesome."
Pros: "Everything seemed all right"
Pros: "The meal and drink service was quite good. The stewards/stewardesses were very attentive and kind."
Cons: "There is not enough leg room. There is even less room if the person in front of one's seat has the seat reclined. The seats barely recline at all, so sleep is impossible. Sleep would be possible if there were enough room to rest one's head on the tray in front of the seat. This is impossible if the person in front of one's seat has reclined his or her seat. Thus, sleep is totally impossible on this aircraft. The sinks in the bathrooms also need to be deeper and need to drain more quickly."
Cons: "Flight to Vienna cancelled. Driven to Munich instead. 6 hour wait until flight to Nice. Arrived 8 hours later than scheduled."
Cons: "Seats in economy class were crammed with next to no leg room"
Pros: "The only positive aspect about this experience was the crew on board the plane. They were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "The true cost of this ticket was extremely poorly communicated. The baggage policy was not clear when I purchased my ticket, and I was charged an additional 30 Euros upon boarding to check a bag that met the carry-on size requirements (I had looked this up ahead of time), but because it was in addition to my purse (which fit under the seat), I was forced to pay to check it. Had I been aware that this ticket only permitted a purse-sized carry-on when purchasing the ticket, I would have selected a different ticket/carrier entirely. What was even more confusing was that I had flown on a similar ticket from London to Vienna, and didn't have any issue bringing a carry-on and a purse, so of course I was surprised when they told me I had to pay an additional 30Euro for the same two bags! When I tried to explain this to the agent, she argued with me and was very unhelpful. Overall, a very negative experience on Austrian Air. I will not be returning."
Pros: "Exiting the aircraft."
Cons: "United did not honour the seat assignment that Airfare.com gave me so I sat in a middle seat. But the entire seating plan on United is so bad it should be a violation of the anti torture convention."
Pros: "It was cheap and easy to book"
Cons: "Not being able to check in online, was not able to reserve seat. Even at luggage check in the flight attendants did not allow me to reserve a seat."
Pros: "Friendly crews, good coffee"
Cons: "Food is bad, and the reading light doesn't work. Limited selection of movies and tv shows"
Pros: "Great plane good price for plane ticket."
Pros: "movie selection was good. sound was surprisingly good too. crew was efficient and friendly enough."
Cons: "my seat wouldn't stay back. pretty annoying on a red eye."
Pros: "The staff were kind"
Cons: "The seat was worn down and very uncomfortable. The screen was super tiny and terrible quality. Everything was caked in old dirt"
Pros: "nice but slow in business class"
Pros: "aircraft was new, clean, and with many new amenities that are appreciated - device charging, Internet access. The crew was great."
Cons: "The seats are tough after a few hours of siting. Children screamed throughout the flight. To the crews credit, they recognized the issue, and suggested a move to empty seats. However,there was a screaming and coughing child behind these seats also. Perhaps grouping families to a section would help?"
Cons: "Top marks for WestJet!"
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "Better communication in regards with mechanical issues."
Pros: "Didn't see much of crew. Food was crazy expensive for what it was."
Cons: "Better food for price, or an option to pre-book a proper meal at time of buying ticket. Plane was cold and no blankets."
Pros: "Everything. Thank you"
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Thanks."
Cons: "Always delays with this airline, hope their service improves now they have been bought out by Air Canada. Staff need training on how to deal with their delays, rather than the "I know as much as you" answer. Their staff have always pleaded blind ignorance when disruptions occur. AVOID."
Cons: "My baggage did not arrive in my final destination"
Pros: "Crew were very caring. Seats were OK"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was pretty friendly and we reached London an hour early which was brilliant."
Cons: "Maybe let us know in advance that there's no TV's in the plane, or meals. Leg room for someone who's 6'4" is non existent, especially when the person in front of you puts their seat back."
Pros: "Comfort, timing. Customer Service!"
Cons: "Technically problems with lightning on board."
Cons: "Crews were good"
Pros: "i was pretty comfortable being in an aisle seat"
Cons: "didn’t love the lights coming on in the middle of the night"

Cons: "The flight to be on time."
Pros: "Very comfortable, staff was courteous and professional and planes arrived ahead of schedule!"
Pros: "Staff are cute"
Pros: "Boarding went well. Although it was a full flight, they asked for volunteers to check in hand luggage (free of charge) I did, trying to help. But once I picked up my luggage and got to destination point, I noticed that 2 small items (gifts for family) had been pilfered. Not happy and will not volunteer to help again."
Cons: "No food on plane, no entertainment,( unless you download the app) Above pilfered items"
Cons: "My returning flights were not correct. I ended up having 2 returning flights back to Halifax which made me have to overnight in Toronto unexpectedly."
Pros: "Neriande (who issued the boarding passes & took checked bags) and her colleague At the check in desk were amazing - actually going behind the scenes to find a gate checked bag that had been wrongly named and was headed for Toronto when we were headed to LONDON GATWICK"
Cons: "Faulty weather radar on a stormy evening cancelled our WestJet PREMIUM ECONOMY flight. After deplaning and waiting for all passengers without checked bags to be rebooked, we eventually were on our way by car from LGA to JFK airport to meet a British Airways ECONOMY flight with only minutes to spare"
Pros: "Option to watch movies on your device"
Cons: "Not useful if you don’t have a device"
Pros: "Embarkation staff were helpful"
Cons: "No better than AC Rouge which I deplore"
Pros: "staff on airline great"
Cons: "Lost my luggage hopefully I’ll get that tomorrow. Airline charged me 70 pounds for that. Staff at customer service were not helpful at all."
Pros: "Hi. I actually am glad that the company is following up because I was having a hard time finding an email to contact. I actually came to kayak to book my ticket for Friday to go to London however when I got to the airport it says it was for Monday. Because I had to be at London the next day for a wedding i had to buy another ticket for almost 1000. I also couldn’t contact u so I’m emailing now. I didn’t get on the plane for west jet because I am already in London. I also have a screen shot that shows me that my flight details were for Friday however another email shows me that it’s for Monday. Even the workers at th airport were confused and felt strongly bad for me. I would like a full refund as well. Thank you. Please contact back. 416806-6530 or email me at email@example.com"
Cons: "slight delay in takeoff but otherwise good"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled due to WestJet reasons (plane was not safe to fly) the following evening the flight was supposed to depart at 7pm we didn’t take off until 10:37 pm causing an arrival of 940AM into London instead of 7:23AM primarily because the crew they chose for this new flight was coming from Montreal so we had to wait for them to arrive."
Pros: "Staff was good"
Cons: "We got stuck at the airport for 20h because of westjet not having a pilot."
Pros: "The wifi inflight service"
Cons: "No food, only snacks."

Pros: "The flight was not cancelled in spite of poor weather"
Cons: "Flight on tarmac for 2 hours after loading passengers no word regularly from pilots or anyone for a long time. Baggage loading and no accountability for huge delays for lost luggage containers? Who is the logistics team? This is not the first time westjet has provided poor service on their international flights. Training if ground staff onsystems is poor. He guest services at tronto openly claimed they did lot know how to operate certain screens for transactions."
Pros: "I was traveling with my 11 month old daughter and everyone went out of their way to assist us and I didn't feel like a burden to them. When she was sleeping on my lap during the flight they even brought me my meal in portions so I didn't have a huge tray to balance over my baby."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Excellent Flight to London"
Cons: "Typical Econofare - pay piece meal for everything including a checked bag."
Pros: "Free upgrade and gate check!"
Cons: "No checked bags or meals for economy passengers"
Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."
Cons: "My ticket/reservation was not found by WestJet. I had to buy a new ticket. Flight Network or Emirates screwed up. I will need you and them to reemburse me. Please investigate."
Pros: "It was very enjoyable all round."
Cons: "Too short"
Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"

Cons: "lnternet was very expensive ($4-5 for 30 minutes, so l did not bother) no entertainment whatsoever, but okay for a budget flight during the night"
Cons: "You have to download an app to watch movies/tv. There is no food served (transatlantic flight!) unless purchased 48 hours beforehand."
