Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I like Qatar service very much and that is why I fly with them most of the time."
Cons: "On my printed boarding ticket provided by the Qatar airline desk at ORD, it only had my first initial of my first name listed. After waiting in line for an hour to get my boarding pass, I proceeded to security and they would not accept it and said I needed to go back and get a stamp or prove my purchase from months earlier (my confirmation email was not enough). Although I was able to get the stamp, this is frustrating as my name should have been listed (Sara) which is what I provided in my online profile when purchasing the tickets or the person at the Qatar desk should have realized this when providing me my boarding pass."

Pros: "Flight duration was short"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"

Cons: "Ugh, The seat in front of me had some box taking up 1/4 of my leg-room. I get that the box probably contains some crucial equipment, but can you at least round the edges so I can lay my leg against it without cutting off my circulation to my foot? Other than that, typical Qatar luxury (as much as you're gonna find in coach)."
Cons: "Although the loading Zone was given as Zone 1, boarding was chaotic because the fround crew was incredibly inefficient. The announcement was totally mumbled and badly managed, Why cant the boarding at Cochin be organised like queues for each zone so that the passengers do not crowd in a mad rush near the gate as if the fliht will leave without them. As in Doha have different seating area for different zones and the ground crew should be trained to be firm to allow only passengers with boarding."
Pros: "Films Service"
Cons: "Not enough films"
Pros: "Generally courteous in-flight staff"
Cons: "Checking in, they asked for certain number of miles to upgrade. I offered it. Then at the last minute they came and said their system didn't accept American moles. For a daily if their system, they denied service to passenger. This is the second time with them. Last time when another airline missed connection and this time a ticket that I purchased. Doubt if I would, again."
Cons: "Seat number was the same but different position from one reserved online"
Pros: "The staff is friendly and attentive. Food has been flavorful and consistent in quality. Blankets and pillows have been clean. The energizer juice was an excellent option."
Cons: "The cleaning crew was in a hurry and there was a used cotton ear swab in the remote armrest. The tray did not close snugly back when closed up. The remote buttons were not quick to respond and needed to be pressed firmly and slowly. The food menu needs more lighter options. The toilet could use mouthwash addition."
Pros: "i liked that the entertainment system had a lot to offer, lots of movies and options. I liked the staff, they were very cooperative and friendly."
Cons: "the flight was delayed 45 minutes, passengers were waiting in a non-air-conditioned aircraft. The AC was working after takeoff. The airplane chairs were small and no leg room, on a 7 hour flight to Barcelona that was exhausting! Couldn't manage to get some sleep at all. Overall, at least I arrived to my destination safe and sound. Thank you!"

Pros: "everything period"
Cons: "I believed that animals should not travel with people I had to switch seat with someone because I m extremely allergic to cats. So I had to seat in the back of plane to avoid a health problem.

Cons: "The in-flight entertainment is lacking."
Pros: "Seating is spacious, food was okay, entertainment was sufficient but not the best. Overall I was impressed with Jet Blue and will most likely fly with them again in future."
Cons: "Didn't like a huge argument taking place between one family which held the flight up by at least 30 minutes. The crew were very patient with this family, but the passengers were not. I think the family should have been removed and asked to take another flight so that my flight could leave on time. It made everyone very nervous because we didn't know to what extent this conflict would escalate, so we had to sit listening to 3 or 4 members of the family arguing and constantly removing passports from luggage and going back and forth in and out of the plane. One member of this family actually entered the cockpit, which unnerved me because of the risks with terrorists these days. The family appeared to be of muslim descent."

Cons: "A bit of turbulence on take off , no fault of anyone except Mother Nature .. all in all a great flight !"

Pros: "Crew couldn't be nicer. A pleasant experience. Thank you."
Pros: "Snacks. Wifi"

This was a complete violation of my rights. Never have I faced a humiliating situation at any other airport. If this was a TSA requirement then everyone should be subject to a second security check."

Pros: "Crew was attentive and courteous. Everything from check in to landing was simple and streamlined."
Pros: "Flight is conformable.. Crew was fine."
Cons: "experience at the Zurich airport was not good. They checked our passports 3 times before we got to our gate. Swiss airlines should account for these things when they give options for the connections. we had about and hour and half layover and did not even have time to have coffee or anything before a 9+ hour flight. We just ran from one flight to another and barely made to our flight.."
Pros: "General attitude of staff"
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS AWESOME BEFORE THE PLANE EVEN TOOK OFF!! My flights somehow got real messed up and everything down to my luggage had to be input manually. I wasn't sure if it was going to make it with me to the final destination. But it did! The head rest blew me away just as i sat. I love to know I can fall asleep and not have neck problems. And everything from the movies to the service to the food was great! My first international yet BEST experience in economy class was all worth it!"
Pros: "typical Swiss quality"
Cons: "Delay. Missed train connection. Business class went to row 15 To then leave it empty"
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: "Friendly service, superfast check-in"

Cons: "No entertainment offered and the seats were cramped."
Cons: "No tv's on each seat. Seats are. Dry thought and uncomfortable and snacks are terrible"

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: "On time, even arrival 20 min earlier, very courteous and professional cabin crew comparing to the rudeness of Lufthansa one. Soft landing."
Cons: "At LHR terminal 2, same gate A, B, for 2 different flights which lead to confuse many passengers. Better signing and Public Announcement is needed. Queuing 1:30h for tax refund is totally unacceptable and leads to give up to claim your rights."
Pros: "My wife got travel sickness and the crew was very very nice to help her out by offering her a place to lie down and other offerings"
Pros: "Super nice and skilled staff, everyone was great to interact with."
Cons: "Not a thing."
Pros: "On time, efficient, good service, professional"

Pros: "We had delays boarding and no one was there to explain why."
Pros: "entertainment system was good. Pilot was nice crew was pretty nice ."
Cons: "No leg room uncomfortable seats food has gone way down hill since 2 years ago. None of the good chocolates anymore. check in people at the gates were cold fish."
Pros: "That I was going to Florence."
Cons: "This was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever experienced. The seats were so narrow, there was absolutely no legroom, and when the seat in front of me was reclined I had even less space. For an overnight flight, it was ridiculous. The planes for the short one hour trip from Zurich to Florence were more comfortable. The food was tasteless and very artificial in its appearance and taste. Inedible."
Pros: "Food and entertainment were better than expected."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Service and staff were outstanding and would love to use them again!"
Cons: "All was great!"
Cons: "I have used the same carryon on several trips & only Swiss would not let me carry it inside telling me it was a bit high. Disappointed & surprised since never before I was told I had to check-in my carryon containing some essential items."

Pros: "The food was really good. The selection of TV shows and movies were nice, and kept me entertained the whole flight."

Pros: "Comfortable flight, quick boarding, great crew, good pilots."
Cons: "My laggadge was left behind in Zurich (with my medication). Given age of electronics how hard it to make sure that everything is loaded? Not hard at all. They located Laggage at 12:30, but took them 7 hour to ship to Barcelona, so it arrived at 7:30 pm to Barcelona airoport. And they only delivered next day. Not cool. Advice: read laggage tags to reading device during loading and compare with transit customers flight database."
Pros: "The whole flight process was a nightmare! From the counter check in to baggage claim."
Cons: "There should have been a children's area that was double insulated from the rest of the very full and crowded flight."
Cons: "Shortly after take-off, the person in front of me put her seat back as far as it could go. I was in the last seat our economy row, by the window. Snacks were served almost immediately, and then dinner. For a brief time the passenger in front of me had her seat up for dinner. However, by the time I had finished dinner, I felt captured in my seat, It took a long time for the trays to be collected after dinner. I wished I'd brought anxiety medication. Could have been a better selection of movies."
Pros: "More space with a window seat than I am used to. Shoulder didn't even touch the side of the plan. Loaded the back of the plan first after premium and those needing extra time."
Cons: "By the time they got to me I only had one choice for the dinner meal. No restroom in the back of the plane so I got stuck waiting for the cart to come all the way down the aisle before I could go to use it."
Pros: "I love Swiss. They are the best. Great service,pilots were giving us informations when the weather was acting up,the whole crew was amazing."
Cons: "Boarding is a free for all, no system"

Cons: "Almost missed the flight, the layover was too short"

Cons: "Cramped seating in economy class. Food. No wifi."
Pros: "The staff was polite and the food was good."
Cons: "The one hour delay from Chicago to Zurich and the other one hour delay from Zurich to Budapest and the fact that I lost my pick up car from Budapest to Romania that I reserved . I lost the car and the money."
Pros: "the only direct flight between zrh hkg in star alliance with schedule that fits me, otherwise i'll not fly swiss, if i had more time, i'd consider switching plane with singapore airlines/ thai instead...."
Cons: "no wifi on board, bad food, bad attitude flight attendants without smiles"
Pros: "Very polite staff. Comfortable, clean seats (except for lack of legroom)."
Cons: "No option to purchase extra leg room without jumping to first class or business class. Extremely congested and frustrating boarding process, at least partly due to passport rechecks required by US govt."
Pros: "Pleasant crew, quick boarding."
Cons: "Late departure, late arrival due to a plane at our gate. Very poor quality media systems, cramped, inconsiderate passenger next to me taking up more room than necessary. Cramped."
Pros: "Free drinks"
Cons: "Foot space obstructed by poorly placed seat fixtures. Entertainments not available until after takeoff. Other airlines have made available for the entirety of the flight. Safety instructions not great, to be honest i do prefer the american airlines overblow saftey films. Control for entertainment placement meant when trying to sleep youd end up turning them on again. Touch screen would have been better. No internet as far as i could tell."
Pros: "The flight departed on time arrived half hour early. No baggage problems. Nice crew. Good food."
Cons: "It was a bit older aircraft. Seats were a bit hard not as comfortable. Entertainment options could be better with more movie titles."
Pros: "A smooth and on time - early actually - flight. So empty that I was able to lay down and sleep. All good!"
Pros: "A safe crossing over the Atlantic!"
Cons: "I queued at the Virgin Atlantic departure desk only to be told I had to walk to another terminal (the farthest one away) to queue for Delta Airlines. There was no mention of this on my e-ticket. Had I been elderly or unwell I would have been very upset. Delta is really the poor relation and does not even begin to compare to the journey I had to Boston on Virgin which was fantastic. Very disappointing but I was delighted to get to Heathrow safely."
Pros: "Much quieter on board than the Manchester Orlando service, virtually no kids."
Cons: "As a 6-footer still find it difficult to get both legs comfortable when I stretch out because of metal base of seat in front."

Pros: "The seats reclined at a good pitch and were very comfortable. The crew were friendly and service was good."
Cons: "I understand that on the night flight, they were trying to keep the lights up for dinner service, but it prevented my toddler from being able to sleep and thus made for a difficult rest of the journey."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "The scone and roll were blah and dry - and so much bread in one meal!!! My seat charger didn’t work :("
Pros: "Everything! From check-in all the way to the landing of the plane I was really satisfied! There were a couple crew members that really made the flight feel so at-home/friendly that one could not help but just smile and relax in the flight. Awesome job crew on Flight VA69!"
Cons: "I wish my partner and his family were with my parents and I on the flight to enjoy the experience we had as well."
Cons: "We were bussed to the plane, there were long dark hairs on my pillow, and they are generous with snacks at close intervals, but the food could be much better. The ideas are cute, but the actual food is pretty basic, which is disappointing for Virgin, who I hold in high regard. Or did."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding and the good choices were excellent"
Cons: "The flight was late( not their fault) and there were several technical difficulties with the A/C and entertainment system"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"

Pros: "They didn't serve any refreshments or even water"
Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."

Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."

Pros: "The food was okay"

The head stewardess would not refill my sports water bottle after I asked her nicely, instead she poured water into a cup which she threw away, wasting plastic unnecessarily. I told her I did not like wasting plastic and she appeared to not enjoy what I had to say. This was the same lady who handed me my dinner. Rest of crew was great."

Pros: "I am liking the new Delta terminal at LAX. The flight crew was nice pleasant and helpful. The pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The Delta Sky club was small and over crowed. If you go take the first seat spot you can find. It doesn’t get bigger. I have high hopes for the new combined lounge between the terminals. The flight itself felt like an older 737-800 while it had power there were only two and the two others in my row snagged them. I was in Delta Comfort and have to say the extra leg room isn’t a lot."

Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Hotel due to missing connection was nice."
Cons: "Flight delays cause cascade of irritable passengers. Flight out of Phoenix delayed due to late departure from previous location. We were told mechanical reasons was the cause of the delay. This caused many passengers to miss their connecting flight in Atlanta. When we arrived after midnight, one gate person was attempting to help 50 people with morning connecting flights and room accommodations. The airline knew 3 hours prior that they would have tired, hungry, frustrated passengers. To then have to wait more than an hour in a line to get a bed and or a meal was too much for most people. There were other smaller examples of how Delta's staff or procedures were not customer centric. I will avoid Delta for travel in the future, and I am getting out of their stock."
Cons: "Our flight was originally scheduled for departure at 7:45 PM. We got an alert stating that the flight was going to be delayed but we were already almost to the airport when I received the first message on my smartphone. We received three additional alerts making our total wait time at the airport 5½ hours before we could approach the gate and board the aircraft. Seating in immediate gate area was not comfortable. Boarding was chaotic at best with very little control and guidance provided by Delta staff. The audio over the PA system was difficult to decipher much of the time. The only other available boarding status information was presented on the screens stationed near the gate and indicated PREMIUM the entire time during our boarding process and was never updated. We literally had to scramble through the crowd to get to the gate desk and get our boarding passes validated so we could board our flight with our group of passengers. Our seating on board the aircraft was thankfully good which is why I rated Comfort as Okay. We were saddled with one more delay after the flight left the gate and taxied briefly down the runway and then sat there for almost an hour. My suggestions to improve customer satisfaction based on my experience would include the following 1. Provide extended alerts for passengers travelling especially if the anticipated delay is known to the airline more than 2 hours before scheduled flight time. 2. Improve seating in the waiting areas near all Delta gates. 3. Re-orient all staff in proper boarding process and utilizing all available resources properly to provide clear and intelligible (not speeding) overhead audio messaging and current boarding status prompts on displays. 4. Maintain or replace audio equipment if necessary to help improve quality of audio messaging in all boarding areas."
Cons: "My email read check into Aeromexico I could not check in the Aeromexico using my phone I was dropped off at the Aeromexico terminal after standing in line for half an hour I find I was in the wrong terminal I needed to be in a different terminal with Delta because Aeromexico even on my reservation read that does not fly to Tampa. I had to find a shuttle to another terminal the shuttlesare not marked it was very confusing"
Pros: "Friendly but efficient. Allowed me to keep my bag with me without a fight."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants and for the most part I could understand the pilot when he spoke."
Cons: "Wi-fi should be free. Put chocolate into the snack options."
Pros: "Was a nice flay , thanks"
Cons: "I like the AirFrance seats more than I like the Delta seats. AirFranxe has better entertainment too."
