Cons: "Internet was more expensive than it should be"
Pros: "Service was excellent. Stewardess always came back with what they promised to bring. Premium economy seating was very good."
Cons: "Food could be better. Entertainment was somewhat limited. The older plane on one leg meant no wifi and no noise-cancelling headset"
Pros: "The extra inches were nice. Fairly comfortable seat. And the ice cream was a nice treat."

Flight attendants were exceptionally efficient, professional, courteous, and outstanding ambassadors for ANA and Japan itself. In the US Marine Corps we would say "Ooo Rah". I may heed to check out your milage club and stop using various carriers for my trans Pacific flights. Thank you very much ANA."

Cons: "Economy seat was hard and uncomfortable. Meal tray is quite small. For international flights: Not ANA's responsibility, of course: the level of Hollywood movie artistry these days is so poor. Perhaps ANA could consider selecting more movie classics and proven gems in their flight selection. More classicTV shows could help, also."
Cons: "Breakfast option"
Cons: "Well, I have the fear of buying ANA air tickets because the previous one, it was United instead. Horrible horrible horrible"
Pros: "Not much to complain about. If the snacks can be provided at the galley freely, that would be perfect."

Cons: "I understand it was only an hour flight but I would've appreciated a snack of some sort"
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "The captain failed to update the passengers and crew of significant change in flight path and delay. The flight flew off course for almost 30 minutes, while the flight attendants required everyone to remain seated due to supposed turbulence. We felt no turbulence for almost 25 mins. No update was given to passengers while we flew far off course. I motioned to the flight attendant, who was seated due to turbulence warning, to ask why we were off-course, but she could not get up. Many passengers were pointing to the flight path animation, to point out that we were flying straight north, instead of southeast. The flight attendant then called the captain for an update, and then the captain finally made an announcement about weather delays around shanghai."
Pros: "Snacks, Timings, beverages, entertainment."
Cons: "Space, main course food"
Cons: "Food and entertainment options"

They need to have a restroom in that big room that they seat you in before boarding.

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "More tasty snacks throughout the flight"
Pros: "The cabin crew and the pilots. The flight went smoothly."

Pros: "Prompt and timely service"
Cons: "Food can be more tasty"

Staff is always friendly and happy...they really seem to absolutely love their job! Free toiletries in the bathrooms are an extra plus. Whenever there was a change in schedule / plans the captain informed the passengers immediately about what was going on and what would happen next."
Cons: "The only thing that did and probably always will be AWFUL is going thru security at JFK. The T S A officials there are unfriendly, sometimes rude, never smiling and often yelling at you or even little kids or elderly people. We are travelling a lot and no other security staff at any given airport is so unfriendly and harsh. Worst thing about going on a journey."

Shared already

my flight was pretty good specially food

Cons: "You are cold and cant get any blanket? Very poor service"
Cons: "Attitude of some of the cabin crew very bad. Service was poor and with short comings. With Emirates either the service is very good or very bad. They need to get rid of the dead wood!"
Pros: "Great business class"
Pros: "Fast boarding, on time, movies."
Cons: "Softer seats. Better food. Seat parents with their screaming babies and children in the back of the plabe!!!"
Pros: "The crew helped us get seats together as a family and also made a request for that seat change. They allowed us to board earlier which really helps since we have two kids under 4 years of age."
Cons: "The announcements at Chennai airport are not always audible"
Pros: "Seat was fine for size of plane and comfortable for a night flight. Food was flavoursome and nice."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The food choice"
Cons: "Almost all the flights I take out of Cairo leave late, not sure if this an airport issue or what but it is very stressful to have boarding go so slowly and to have the plane take off over an hour late. This has now become "the norm". Please make better efforts to leave ON TIME!"
Pros: "Comfort. Service. Cleanliness. Efficiency. Hassle-free."
Cons: "Very small plastic cups of water. On-board on call crew service was slow."
Pros: "Emerites is a great Airline"
Cons: "All well"
Pros: "I had really high expectations for this trip but they were unmet. The service was indifferent. The chair wasnuncomfortable. The aisle was super narrow. I was bumped the entire flight. I didn’t like the food. And it was obvious by the end of the trip the staff was just done. Leaving the plane I passed several attendants and they did not say anything. They didn’t thank me for my business. They did t say goodbye or encourage me to come again — they were oblivious and no caring."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "No internet"
Cons: "Timely."
Pros: "Great business class seats with lay flat seats, attentive staff, great drinks, wine, food, recent movies and lots of choices."
Cons: "No separate pre-boarding area for business and first class. Beginning of boarding wasn't announced"
Cons: "A very small hidden FLYDUBAI reference for a one-route flight with Emirates logo was unprofessional and deceptive."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I have traveled extensively but I have never seen a staff more rude than Emirates. I had a connecting flight at Dubai Airport and there was 8 hours waiting time. At the gate I was connecting for Islamabad, there was not a single seating arrangement. When I complained about it to emirates desk, the staff was extremely rude. Such arrogance and an attitude that you instantly abhor. In my opinion, these Emirates people are most racist people in the world. The way they treat passengers from developing countries is vile. Even onboard, they treat 'white' passengers much differently than they would for a brown skin. I would never fly Emirates again. I plan to write against them in some leading newspaper for being racist. If people like us stay quiet and injustice and humiliating attitude they have against us, we will continue to suffer. I can pay a higher price for any other airline but I decline to ever fly with Emirates at the expense of my dignity."
Pros: "Professionalism of flight and ground crew. Movie & entertainment selection. Overall cleanliness of aircraft. Better comfort due to wider seating."
Cons: "The fact that this was the shortest flight of my trip - Wish my journey started this way."
Pros: "Great service! While first time, I had a great experience."
Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."
Pros: "The food was very good and there were a lot of choices for entertainment. All of the crew were friendly."
Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."
Pros: "Non"
Cons: "Everything is unlikely You got treated by your sc you got treated by your skin"

Cons: "Baggage policy cimmunication"
Pros: "www.Web.HR"
Pros: "Everything from the plane, crew service and timing. Excellent"

Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Why are Emirates business Class seats on 777 so weirdly configured - you have to be a stick insect to squeeze out of bulkhead row 8 window seats because of hideous mock walnut trunk slung between the seats to house aisle TV screen."
Pros: "Meals and free wine were positives. Also the travel toothbrush and toothpaste were nice. Entertainment with movies and tv had a lot of variety also."
Cons: "It took 45 minutes to get out bags! Crew bags came out immediately but customers stood around the luggage belt for more than 45 minutes b/c thats how long it took to get our bags and many people were left. Very annoying after a 10-hour flight that lands late at night."

Cons: "ICE not as good as a380"

Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "Need to improve on the toilet"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food variety"
Pros: "Good food, pretty nice staff. Entertainment options were plentiful too. Seats were fine also."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Screaming kids the entire 14 hours. The staff should have at least spoke to the family and kindly asked for them to take care of calming the child down. Instead, he screamed the entire flight and did as he pleased, with no regard to any of the customers on the flight."
Pros: "The team was fantastic. Always willing to help."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the announcements were not made to keep us informed. There was some chaos involved once the gates were open. This has to be addressed."
Pros: "staff"
Cons: "nothing it was perfect"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "i would like to be upgraded I first class (for free)! :)"
Pros: "The quiet flight I've been in , the crew were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The standard meal was spicy to me , change the menu with more choices of healthy suitable for flight"

Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Very good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was horrible. No drink service. Old seat."
Pros: "The dinner was one of the top two I've ever had on a plane and I've flown business class around the world."
Cons: "I just don't fit comfortably into the pods and for a 14 hour flight that's a pain in the neck or lower. The seatbelts must be adjustable to allow a pod user to roll on his side."
Pros: "Crew very attentive. Red eye so you may need to call but very good. Comfortable aircraft slso"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Very delayed flight that resulted to missed my flight going to davao"
Pros: "On time. Good service"
Cons: "Couldnt get the lazy flight attendants to bring me a drink. I asked twice for a Coke Zero."
Pros: "- Good food - Good choice of entertainment - Comfortable seats - Polite staff & well organized"
Pros: "The upgraded seat to business class."
Cons: "Some staff still needs training, sinplying saying no, is not acceptable, finding a solution and working towards a resuloution is more acceptable. Better verbiage used, checking on food count making sure EVERYONE gets what’s printed on the menu. Asking everyone equally on the same roll is the rule of thumb."
Pros: "I took the economy premium class. It was great. Seats very comfortable. Dinner was great."
Cons: "Breakfast - the omelette was not done, but other than that if was good. The dim-sam was good."
Pros: "I traveled economy coming home and was delighted by the amenities that you never see on commercial airlines anymore. On the way to New York I upgraded to premium economy, This was such a nice experience. It was worth the up charge. And two free checked bags? That is unheard of anymore"
Cons: "When I was on the upgraded ticket, I was actually disappointed that we landed early because I was sleeping so well."
Pros: "The service from start to finish was superb. The flight to Hong Kong had the on board attendants at full service the whole journey. Blankets and pillows were supplied as standard and plenty of complimentary food. There was a genuine sense that the on board attendants wanted you to be as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "I can't think of anything really. Perhaps the seats could have slightly more leg room but hey. What can you expect from economy."
Pros: "The flight attendants in the airplane, both going and coming back to my destination were very nice. I really appreciated their hard work and attentiveness."
Cons: "At the HK airport the lady attending the check in, I believe her name is Tammy, I could not understand exactly what she was asking me to do because her voice was so low and her English was not clear. When I did not comply to what she was asking she very rudely did what she was asking me to do yet I could not hear or understand her. She even rolled her eyes. Very uncalled for and rude."
Pros: "Up and down at the right time and place. Great experience."
Pros: "Amazing ground staff that was quick and experienced. Great choice of airport lounges. Newer plane."
Cons: "Food was very disgusting and plane was not properly cleaned."
Cons: "Can not catch up the fight to guangzhou"

Pros: "The crew and pilots are always polite and professional."
Cons: "We were an hour late out of Chicago giving me only 60 mins to catch my flight to Manila...."
Pros: "Left on time arrived early. Staff excellent."
Pros: "Was in premium economy from Hong Kong to London. Fairly comfortable seats. Managed to sleep about 7 hours. Food was decent."
Cons: "Crew appear disinterested in the service."
Pros: "Staff were superb from check in to landing. Service from MAN to HKG was impeccable."
Cons: "Seat was a touch faulty"
Pros: "Boarding was orderly and efficient, the polar opposite of the mad rush that can sometimes happen when cabin crew don't take charge of the boarding order. Crew were courteous and multilingual. Leg room felt a bit better than average for an international flight. Food was very tasty. The inflight entertainment selection and screen quality was excellent."
Cons: "They managed to run out of the Western breakfast option (which I did not want anyway, but many British tourists had to make do with yoghurt and fruit due to unfamiliarity with congee). The entertainment system is controlled by touchscreen only. An elegant solution that is simple to keep clean, but you get tired of holding your arm up at eye level."
Pros: "All components of the trip were UpTo the expectations"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Spaciousness of the plane Flight Crew Cleanliness of the plane Inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Food Luggage space of cabin not enough Promptness of plane ,our plane was late Manila airport terminal 3 no air-conditioning while waiting Boarding was disorganized last seat should board first no announcement from crew and no implementation of plan. Need constant communication from staff for better boarding experience."
Cons: "The crew gets annoyed when you are in economy class and asks for extras"
Pros: "In flight service was excellent. Food was great. Good variety of entertainment options."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little confusing. Could not hear which rows were being called up and the line was really long."
Pros: "On time Nice crew Good service"
Pros: "It good."
Pros: "Good flight. Crew busy but pleasant."
Cons: "Difficulty hearing announcements - I have a hearing deficit - so it was hard to know what was going on. Wish there was a coffee/tea service before landing after 15-hour flight to Chicago. Crew kept windows dark until 1/2 hour before landing."
Cons: "Quality of the veg food.requires improvement."
Pros: "Crew behaviour"
Cons: "Food was bad..more snacks needed...movie list was not updated ...should be more Bollywood movie"
Pros: "Smooth, delay-free travel from take-off to (smooth) landing on the tarmac! The pilot has some skill to make it like a gliding landing without bumps!"
Cons: "Cathay Pacific does not participate in TSA PreCheck."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline"
Cons: "Everything was good except for the meal part. I was seated at the last and by the time I had my turn to choose from the menu, I was left with just one choice because all the passengers ahead of me got to choose first. Would be great if Cathay would accommodate extra meals on their flights."
Pros: "A free upgrade to premium economy - I think the flight was over booked."
Pros: "Service and timing"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Late boarding and departures from LA to CGK and from CGK to LA. Seats were uncomfortable for 14 hours flight. Very minimal service provided during flight, minimal isle check by flight attendent throughout the 14 hours flight. I had the rudest flight attendant, she didn't smiles. Asked for drinks but never return. My niece request for cup of noodle, instead she responded if didn't my niece had already one. I asked for beef dinner but she placed on my table a turkey instead stated she ran out after I told her that's not beef. Flight attendant yelled out loud to tell the passenger to seat down instead of approach the passenger."
Pros: "Entertainment okay. Screen small"
Cons: "No legroom at all. And I'm not even a big person."
Pros: "Liked the food and everything else"
Cons: "Total flight time was more . It was extra to go to Hing Kong from India . Normal flight time to Toronto from India is 16 hours in other flights . Does not seem like a good idea to waste 4 hours more when you come to Toronto from India by Cathay Pacific . I wish I was in some other flight to save time . Overall route of the flight was wrong"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Waiting time , as the flight was not scheduled on time. Also there was no vegeterian food from Honk Kong to SFO."
Pros: "All as expected - no surprises"
Pros: "Seated 19K in business class on the 777 from Manchester. Crew was fantastic and responded quickly and enthusiastically. Breakfast muesli was really good"
Cons: "Food could be better. Lamp rump steak cooked well but potato on the side not washed properly. Breakfast option not appetizing"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Small portion of food"
Pros: "They have nice blankets"
Cons: "The seats were hard to move."
Pros: "The meal options that were served on this flight were great, and the overall flight was peaceful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather, and this seemed to frazzle the flight crew. Pre-takeoff service of water and juice or champagne was only give to one side of the premium cabin, and when I asked if they would complete it for the other side after take-off was told no. I'm used to Cathay taking our orders and being back what we ask for for a premium experience, however on this trip they just brought everything on carts and asked people what they wanted on the spot, offering no suggestions. Overall the service on this CX 889 flight seemed to be severely underpar for what I expect from Cathay"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Economy's seats a bit tightly packed in. Food was kind of Asian based and no choices for snacks but the Asian type nuts/pretzels that tastes wired"
Pros: "For the reasons stated above, we did not travel to Perth on Cathay Pacific. However, the Cathay Pacific staff were very helpful in organising our rescheduled flight with Air New Zealand."
Pros: "service, organized, seats, movie options, temperature"
Pros: "I was very comfortable and had a great flight to vancouver"
Cons: "No dislikes from the entire flight, i was very happy"
Cons: "food sucks for short haul"

It was an excellent flight!

Cons: "The baggage took a really long time to be delivered to the carousel"
Pros: "Crew was great, seat comfortable, food was fine."
Cons: "Check-in personnel didn't quite know how to deal with a Green Card holder. Passport check before boarding creates a mess."
Pros: "Crew was great, food was great, timing was great! (Got to LAX about 45min prior to scheduled arrival), however seats are very narrow!! Good enough for a short (2-5 hour) flight but definitely not for a transatlantic one!"
Cons: "Everything great but the seats..don’t expect too much of a leg room in the 777 Boeing...unless you get the exit row in economy or you book a business class!"
Pros: "The food was decent and on board entertainment was pretty good."
Cons: "The boarding experience was terrible. We bought new lightweight International sized carry-on bags for our family of four and packed extremely light to keep each of bags under the 8 kg weight limit for carry-on bags. The crew required us to check them anyway! So incredibly annoying."
Pros: "Service was fine, on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "* Online checkin failed * Sit selection was not honoured * Sit was uncomfortable * Was last to receive luggage after landing, even though they had a "business - priority" sticker on them"
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive crew. Clean plane."
Pros: "The business class ground crew proposed to check in our hand baggage and were very helpful. (We were in economy class) It was my birthday and i was very touched to receive a spontaneously made card and some chocolate truffles and a smile from the flight crew."
Cons: "I think the choice of films could be improved."
Pros: "The stewardesses were absolutely amazing, asking/ offering beverages in between main meals t/ out the whole flight! They were just doing their job above and beyond! Wonderful crew especially the girls in the section 30’s on the side FGJK, THANK YOU SO MUCH! YOU WERE AMAZING!"
Pros: "The food was amazing, the in-flight entertainment was amazing, and the flight attendants were amazingly kind and beautiful. :) Swiss Air has set the standard on airline food, serving Swiss Chocolate and Gruyere cheese on the flight! It was the best!"
Cons: "My only concern was that there were times when I felt a little too warm. The newer Boeing 777 doesn't have passenger controlled A/C."
Cons: "Palermo never ready for plane arrival"
Pros: "nice flight"
Pros: "Swiss Lounge, food excellent."
Cons: "everything was very good"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed, bad entertainment system, lost our luggage"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Too hot on plane, despite several requests to turn up air conditioning. Would be nice if pilot gave a few more updates as to why we sat on the tamac so long."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, more or less."
Cons: "packed in like anchovies in a tin."
Pros: "Everything! The cleanest aircraft I have ever been on, excellent crew, amazing breakfast!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was superb"
Cons: "Connecting flight cancelation, didn’t get to go."
Cons: "My special meal wasn’t available."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Ithe check in counter was open about an hour before departure, having passengers waiting in line for almost two hours. Thhe departure was later than scheduled, I did ask for assistance in Zurich airport and got none. Almost missed my connection flight due to poor health conditions and less than expected lay over time."
Pros: "Chocolate is a nice touch. Snacks (sandwich) was actually good."
Cons: "Seating upholstery needs to be replaced. Faux leather upholstery has cracks. The seat next to mine kept coming off."
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!"
Cons: "You need more time to make the connection in Zurich from domestic to international.....very rushed to do in less than one hour...."
Pros: "Easy, quiet boarding and flight, USB port available, audio and sound were working, nice movie selection. Friendly and helpful crew, assisted with cough crisis"
Cons: "Seats from JFK to Zurich were a little bit squeezed."
Pros: "Friendly service and food"
Cons: "Older plane with no entertainment"
Cons: "Roughest flight ever, many people got sick, too much turbulence to fly"
Pros: "Check in easy"
Cons: "Weren’t told enough about delays ... very tight seating crew was friendly"
Pros: "Good service - including snacks and drinks. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Upon boarding, the agents in the airport gave us a hard time over a bag that definitely met carry-on requirements. Almost made us check it, and then changed their mind last minute. Very unnecessary/dramatic situation, especially since we flew with that bag via carry-on multiple times (and on even smaller planes)."
Pros: "Great service and friendly staff! Also great food!"
Cons: "There's nothing I didn't like :)"
Pros: "Courteous, welcoming crew. All good"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "We were packed into the airplane like sardines!"
Pros: "good entertainment system"
Cons: "not enough leg room"
Pros: "On time great crew. Free wine that is Swiss air."
Pros: "Nothing because the airplane seats were terribly uncomfortable!"
Pros: "It was an uneventful trip, which is what you want in a trip by air. Boarding was easy, seats are pretty comfortable, staff friendly and helpful."
Pros: "We had two flights with Swiss and the first one left half an hour late, meaning we only had about 10 minutes to connect to the next one. Instead of sprinting through the airport, a man was waiting for us immediately outside the plane. He got our luggage right from the cargo, drove us to another man who stamped our passports, and then drove us to the plan just in time for takeoff. It was incredible service and everyone was super friendly. We so appreciated them making sure we caught our connecting flight!"
Cons: "They could not give me an aisle seat which I had requested. The cabin felt as if you were sitting in a tin can. Very restricted for an almost 8-hour flight. Plus arriving in Athens I discovered that my bag was nowhere to be found. I am still waiting to hear from Swiss about my lost valise..."
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."
Cons: "Food: not so good! Entertainment: in the section of the new releases movies was old not new:) And my bag didn't come on the and :("
Pros: "I enjoyed the entirety of the flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The friendly and attentive crew helped me from boarding to disembarking. Swiss' service in general is outstanding. I highly recommend them for flights to Europe."
Cons: "Cons: They never reduced their fares & surcharges after fuel prices came down this spring; and to add insult to injury, they started charging a $ 29.- seat reservation fee. Loyal customers should not have to pay extra fees! Peter (86)"
Pros: "Decent food, for airline food. I didn't starve for the 8 hours, and the included beer/wine/spirits helps a lot. Entertainment system was enough to help pass the time. This flight had USB chargers...had I known, I would have loaded up my mobile with watchable entertainment."
Cons: "It's still a cattle car for coach travel. Boarding was hectic. Called all passengers at once, which resulted in a crowd pushing to get through the two checkpoints all at once."
Pros: "Decent food, for airline food. I was not expecting anythoing for the 3 hour flight,. Included beer/wine/spirits helps a lot."
Cons: "It's still a cattle car for coach travel. Boarding was hectic. Called all passengers at once, which resulted in a crowd pushing to get through the two checkpoints all at once."
Pros: "Very clean"
Pros: "Best entertainment package of Movies/TV/Food available on commercial airlines."
Pros: "Good service from attendants."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Uncomfortably cramped. Very cold plane. Would have preferred an actual Swiss meal."
Pros: "On time, efficient, good service, professional"
Pros: "video on demand, great movie selection. Food and wine included at no additional charge, and it was good."
Cons: "Cramped seat, with equipment box in my floor area, made overnight flight very uncomfortable. Didn't sleep well."
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: "Short flight. Not much is expected. 3 stars for no rating, except comfort. Small seats/felt cramped. Not a huge deal since it's a short flight."
Cons: "No negatives or anything that caught me off guard."
