Pros: "The JAL flight was great. Seats were comfortable and leg room was very good. Crew was excellent too and very attentive."
Cons: "The food was not good at all on this flight. My last flight on JAL in 2010 the food was excellent. Not sure what happened but the quality of the food has gone down and it was disappointing. Luckily had a bite at the airport before boarding to sustain us on this long flight."
Pros: "The seats were quite small but other than that it was a nice flight. The crew was very nice."
Pros: "Excellent service. Flight attendants are consistantly helpful and friendly."
Pros: "The crews were polite and reliable. No bossy or mean like other airlines. they moved prompt, no running or fast walk on aisles, so that passengers can ask things easily. Food was much better comparing with any other companies. The boarding time was delayed one hour, however we landed japan 2, 3 mins later than the estimated arrival time. Landing technique was beautiful. American, United, ANA which I flew caused me have a deep Earache. I didn't get any pain from this flight. I am already scared of returning flight with American airplines."
Pros: "We were numb from a long flight over the ocean. Pleasant flight with helpful crew, and it helped that some of them knew English."

Cons: "Seats are too small for tall travelers."
Pros: "Our flight TO Tokyo from Honolulu was wonderful! Our seats were spacious, the plane wasn't filled to capacity, the in-flight entertainment was the best I've ever seen, the food was amazing. On our flight BACK, the crew was still wonderful, and the boarding process is quick and efficient."
Cons: "Aside from having to take the red-eye, the seats for our return flight were the most cramped I've ever been. My 6' husband's knees were touching the seat in front of him, and the seats were super narrow. I can't remember being so cramped in my entire life. That's really my biggest complaint, but when the flight is 6 1/2 hours, being cramped gets old really quick."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, constantly checking in with us to make sure we were okay since we don't eat the airline food."
Cons: "While there was more leg room than on most flights, the actual seats were not comfortable enough for a twelve hour flight. This was our ninth trip to Japan, and these were the most uncomfortable seats we've ever had."

Pros: "The upgraded seating."
Pros: "evening flight. not too crowded"

The flight itself was very pleasant, with the cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen on a long flight and plenty of food and drink."
Pros: "Premium economy is marginally better than economy in terms of seat."

Cons: "A newer plane with more restrooms would be great."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so warm and friendly, always ready with a smile and eager to help."
Cons: "Simply an older aircraft and the entertainment options were lacking compared to other carriers. The news video NHK would not fast forward or rewind but would always start over. Otherwise it was a good flight thanks"

Pros: "Crews were great. They worked fast and helpful."
Pros: "Friendly crew"

Cons: "After they told about change my flight to Asiana I finally agreed but I had to walk by myself to Asiana, ANA couldnt at least to make the changes to avoid me long time to stand in line by asiana airlines. I would never recomend ANA"
Pros: "A taste of Japan food."
Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go! Comfy seats with plenty of room; preflight lounge access."
Cons: "Unfortunately, premium economy is the only way to go, because economy class seats are very cramped and "locked" in the upright position (for a 10+ hour flight), and it's a bit pricey."
Pros: "Service Staff Price Professionalism as the ticketing area Great in dealing with children"
Cons: "The lounge was somehow poor and noisy because of the airport constructions."
Pros: "Typical ANA quality. Bumpy flight but handled very well."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Had the katsudon and it was great, love the little tapas dishes they include with it."
Cons: "Would have loved to get a hot towel and slippers. 787 got quite cold when sitting in the middle section. Didn’t seem to have any way to control it."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "A bit warm"
Cons: "The business lounge in honolulu"
Pros: "The seat was nice"
Cons: "Service was extremely slow, it took almost two hours just to get offered a drink. There wasn't any offering after boarding and I had to ask just to get water. The food was quite bad, normally I would choose the Japanese meal, however, both the Japanese and International options were poor. The staff seemed unorganized and did not follow a set protocol."
Cons: "cancelled, hard to rebook flight, staff unhelpful, rebooked on worse flight. very bad experience."
Pros: "The crews on ANA (Flight Attendants) are the hardest working, most polite and service oriented of ANY carrier I can remember. When the cabin lights are ON, the crew is hustling to keep the passengers occupied and chewing. Free Beer, Wine and mixed drinks in Coach! Every Service - Snack, Drinks, Lunch, Dinner, Coffee/Tea, Second and Third rounds of drinks includes a cold towel to wipe your face and hands and most important, trash is collected promptly EVERY single time. WOW. I noticed that Flight Attendants take notes on sleeping passengers for every major meal service, and they take the time to revisit those customers when awake to check they might have wanted to be fed. I also noticed that the crew has special double sided tape to pickup crumbs and spills in the aisles so grime is not tracked into the carpet. Dont be surprized to see a flight attendant cruising the aisle after dinner with a soft cooler full of small vanilla Hagen Daz cups..."
Cons: "We flew from Bangkok to Washington Dulles with a connection in Tokyo. Snow in Japan caused crew shifts to max out and ultimately a dramatic change in flight departure. (Guaranteeing a missed connection) This caused multiple downstream challenges. 1. Original flight was scheduled for 00:30. (Half Past Midnight), rescheduled flight was scheduled for 12:30 (Half Past Noon) For Americans unused to a 24 hour clock, this made emails From ANA very difficult to wrap your mind around. Was it a typo? What happens when you miss your connection? (Turns out weather delays do NOT result in accommodations or meals being provided) Rescheduled flight should have been for 1231 with (AM/PM in Parentheses) 2. For passengers who spent their vacation/trip near the equator, the prospect of spending the night in snowbound Tokyo was simply not addressed in the cancellation email. The better option was to stay in your original point of origin and make the connection in one day, but email has NO telephone number for passengers to call to make these arrangements. (We ended up calling a toll California telephone number to be sure we got an English speaking agent) 3. Many SE Asian departing cities have a crazy baggage weight policy that allows for Two bags of 25 Kilos each , but if you have a single bag that weights 32 Kilos, you must pay excess baggage. Although the policy may NOT be specific to ANA, there are hundreds of folks of all nationalities repacking suitcases on the floor of the airport, to try to meet the regulations. As a traveler I understand this, but as an ANA customer it makes no sense, especially when the ticket agent cannot charge the overage to a credit card at the ticket counter. Instead sending you to a different location then waiting for you to return with a receipt. Its a huge scam and ANA can do better communicating the rules to passengers via email or their web site. Nothing starts a long trip off worse than arguments over arcane rules. 4. Changing a return flight arrangement as a result of weather happens at the last moment, but seat assignments apparently could not keep up. I would rather NOT fly than face a center seat in coach for 14 hours. I cannot explain what happened, but repeated attempts at advance check in showed NO assigned seats available, the ticket and gate agents could not improve on this, but BOTH flights ended up having empty seats and in the end we stressed for nothing. ANA must be able to do better, improving their IT systems to make advance seat assignments possible no matter how challenging the problem of "equipment" and other changes in the face of a canceled flight."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Comfortable. Excellent service."
Pros: "Crew was professional and charming"

Pros: "Very comfortable"
Pros: "High quality fit out, amazing flight crew, great food."
Cons: "Movie selection could be greater."
Pros: "My 96-yr-old father was given an airport wheelchair after we checked his own transport chair. He was wheeled through security and to the departure gate. We were advised they changed us to a bulkhead row w/an unoccupied seat adjacent to his. Twice during the flight one of the flight attendants came to tell him that she would help him off the plane so to wait for her after the rest of the passengers disembarked. The meal was very tasty.Chicken karaage was not crispy but I wouldn't expect it to be. The rest of the items were well seasoned with the right consistency. Dessert was a flan custard with passion fruit sauce (very Hawaii!), even including a few seeds from the fruit as garnish."
Pros: "Nice crew, clean lavatory"
Cons: "Had a chance to select seats only for return flight Seats were too narrow"
Pros: "Fan tasting service by the crew members from the point of check in. Very attentive to all details."

They spoke great English and ensured me and my husband sat together during our 15 hr flight to Vietnam.! They had so many options on new movies and music that helped pass the time. The food was very tasty as well as there snacks and drinks! The entire staff were helpful and appeared to enjoy their jobs. I will always fly with ANA when returning to ASIA."

Pros: "In-flight service from staff was excellent as always, food is good but not outstanding (but let's be clear this was economy class), movie selection is good."
Cons: "From Japan to other places they're always organised, but boarding in London was a little chaotic which is a common problem for ANA flights in other countries *to* Japan - they hadn't set up signs properly or made clear announcements for families with children, First Class, Business class boarding etc. The First Class/Diamond status queue (not for me!) was actually set up in front of a supporting pillar, basic organisational things like that. On balance though, still a top-class airline."
Pros: "Respectful and thoughtful passengers and crew make all the difference."
Pros: "Not overcrowded"
Cons: "Short flight, needed to purchase food"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and the crew and service were excellent. Overall, the food on this flight was also enjoyable."
Cons: "I find the 777 SFO -> Tokyo, and Tokyo -> SFO cabin gets too warm when trying to sleep. With a warm blanket provided, I would suggest keeping the cabin a bit cooler and providing extra blankets if people need them. Also the movie selection on ANA is not nearly as comprehensive as what United provides on international flights."
Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive & met all my expectations."
Pros: "Just OK"

Cons: "Extraordinarily care taken On board. Very impressed with Qutar Airways. Excellent"
Pros: "Crews were excellent. Luggage came out very fast. Flight was very comfortable."

Cons: "Delay delay delay and i have to stay in hotel"
Pros: "crew was amazing.. seat are comfortable"
Cons: "if the food includes children meal ."

Cons: "Food was poor."
Pros: "Crew is so helping and attentive , not like american or european carriers . Inflight dining options in economy was like premium economy"
Cons: "Plane a330-300 was little older and outdated in terms of entertainment system , but since this is short journey hence i dont mind"
Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "all nice"
Cons: "nothing but avoid bread"
Pros: "The food and service was wonderful! Easy smooth flight, made 9 hours fly by!"
Pros: "Cabin crews were politie"

Pros: "very courteous flight crew"
Cons: "baggage took along time to come business class luggage came after economy"
Cons: "The food was horrible"
Pros: "Flight attendants are ok"
Cons: "They did not honor my seat reservation they moved me from row 21 to the last row without any good explanation what is the freaking use of buying a tickiet early and reserving ur seat early when they move u anyway"
Cons: "Organization of the boarding"
Pros: "The cabin crew and Doha airport staff are absolutely great at thinking about customer comfort. Experienced it in the Business Class lounge as well as on the flight!"

Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"
Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."
Pros: "My husband and I recently traveled from New York to Bali Indonesia for our honeymoon. We were upgraded to Business for all four of our flight segments. The flight attendants were incredibly friendly and courteous and were actually surprised when we only ordered one drink and one meal at a time! The food was phenomenal, especially for an aircraft meal, and no matter what I was in the mood for, they had it."
Cons: "Boarding in New York was not organized. Those traveling with small children or needing assistance were not boarded first, nor were Business and Economy boarding from separate jetways."
Cons: "Luggage items are missing."
Pros: "view above"
Cons: "The woman behind me wouldn't allow me to put my seat back. My comfortability was off because she didn't want her TV screen close to her face. I didn't want to make a big deal. Other than that I love Qatar airlines."
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Pros: "They make you feel welcome like you are a big deal unlike most US airlines. Ticamporn was a great hostess especially . Food was great as well."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Good flight"
Cons: "Seriously, the service of Qatar Airways was horrendous in Uganda. Ridiculous. Could NOT give a worse review. Would 100% NOY recommend this airline. EVER."
Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"
Pros: "Plane wasn't full, which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Starting the pre-boarding process into an area without a restroom was horrible. Not allowing us to bring a water bottle on a 14-hour flight was cruel. Movie selection could be better. Additionally, it seems like the Qatar airport is becoming more like a US airport. Agents were barking orders and the pre-boarding process was slow. It was not a good start to the flight."
Pros: "Lots of disruptive kids, one of the ethnically chinese (sorry didn't catch her name) was very attentive and supportive of parents trying to keep their kids happy on a twelve hour flight."
Cons: "Long flight, infrequent water distribution, half the staff just chatting in the back. Filthy bathrooms not cleaned in flight."

Pros: "Good entertainment system, nice selection of movies. Very tasty vegetarian meals. Nice amount of recline on seats."
Cons: "After selecting seats in advance and reconfirming the day before flight upon check in, on arrival at airport our seats had been reassigned to the absolute worst seats on the airplane. The service was not good, with dirty food trays being left in front of us for over an hour at a time, service request call buttons going unanswered, and no beverage service until long after meals were served. Seats very firm for such a long flight. While meals were very good, snack options were terrible."
Cons: "We requested wheelchair assistance for my grandmother (3 days before the flight), but at the departing airport, the person with the wheelchair left early and we had to walk her on to the plane. When we arrived at Hong Kong, there was no wheelchair on the bridge, and after disembarking and being told to wait, it took 30 minutes for them to bring one. The ground staff kept trying to convince us to just walk which seemed very unprofessional."
Cons: "Less fog in SFO"
Pros: "It was a good flight"
Cons: "The flight was great"
Pros: "Professional and friendly Crew & the movies"
Cons: "Too cold, seats to narrow, food not so tasty."

Cons: "Don't delay"
Cons: "3 hours delay for a flight of 1 h 45 min"
Cons: "About cabin crew for for more smile"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, the entertainment on offer was broad and appealed to all passengers. The meal choices were very good, I requested the LFML options and all were good except for the light evening snack at the end of our second flight which was somewhat lacking in flavours and variety."
Cons: "The seats in economy felt cramped on the Boeing 700-300ER, with not much room to recline. This impacted on ability to fully relax and rest on such a long journey. This improved on the Airbus 350 thankfully, which much more leg room."
Cons: "Airplane was extremely hot, service was poor"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was quite good"
Cons: "I was offered an earlier flight departing from London, which was good but was delayed in the end. But I was not told my connecting flight was changed too (new boarding pass not issued and I only realized from the baggage slip) - I had to pay 100 usd to change flights again!"
Cons: "terrible food - poor entertainment system with very mited choice - flight delayed as always"
Pros: "Checkin experience was great. Boarding was great. The crew was great"
Cons: "The movies were old. Not many new releases to choose from"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and did what they could."
Cons: "Economy seats are so cramped that the couple (who were strangers to me) seated next to me (i was in the window seat) decided to 1) one would sleep prone on the floor in the foot portion of our row; and 2) the other would rest his head on ME and the armrest, stretching out on their seats. Greeeaat."
Cons: "Even though our baby has broken leg our stroller was not delivered to Hongkong so we had to carry our baby whole afternoon on hands..also after arrival from Hongkong to DPS Bali one of our suitcases was destroyed- very bad experience"
Pros: "I really enjoy this airline. The flight was good with good entertainment system. I like the provided pillow and blanket and they make sure the cabin is dark and quiet for sleeping. Food is decent with generous amounts and snacks always available to go and grab."
Cons: "I was fairly squished on this flight at 6'2" with my knees almost touching the seat in front of me. I had more space on another Cathay flight and I think I had a seat in the same class. I took off my shoes and that helped me get a little more room to spread my feet/legs out to get comfortable."
Pros: "Food is delicious and fresh"
Cons: "The inflight Entertainemnt is lacking. Shows are too old and few."
Pros: "Food choices were great"
Cons: "flight was super bumpy but not the pilot's fault"
Pros: "Though a long flight.. love flying with Cathay!! The crew was fabulous!"
Pros: "Smooth easy ride and great business class lounges."
Cons: "They need to cater for more Europeans in their food offerings. They also need to carry enough to ensure they do not run out. Bathroom locks require maintenance."
Pros: "The flight is on time"
Cons: "Immigration waiting time is long"
Pros: "Excellent service for wheelchair passengers"
Pros: "The cabin attendants were excellent in carrying iut their work and responsibilities. They were friendly too."
Cons: "I tried to check in online a day before the flight as per email advisory but most of the seats were blocked already and whatever seats left open were only a few and those were tbe ones in the middle or the ones that you need to pay additional. so I decided to check in at the airport but their staff didn’t help much. They still gave us seats away from each other even if I explained that we have some health issues that’s why we need to stay together."
Pros: "Cathay never let you down. Good service, great staff."
Pros: "Comfortable, good food, staff spoke English well"
Cons: "Bad Turbulence for about 1/3 of the flight. Arrived 45 minutes early, sat on runway - not Cathay's fault. What WAS their fault, was the AWFUL, AWFUL MUSIC played over the PA during the wait. It was like Chinese water torture. After more than 15 hours on the plane, it was a repetitive loop that they probably thought would be soothing, but it made me want to scream."
Pros: "Upgraded to business"
Pros: "Crew was nice food was great"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Service and staff. Food was better than most and they weren't stingy with the wine."
Cons: "Plane seemed tired. The usb charger didn't work and the reading lights were impossible to use without putting glare into other passengers eyes. The seats were uncomfortable and their design made it difficult to stretch your legs out beneath the row in front. It was a 777 and I never find Boeings as comfortable as Airbus. Selection of in flight entertainment was limited and sound quality was poor."
Pros: "I was put on an earlier flight as they had a window seat available. Leg room was good, and the food and movie offer was better than last time."
Pros: "Always consistently good.."
Cons: "Flight was packed"
Pros: "caring flight attendant went extra mile to move people into better seats if they were available."
Cons: "people in lowest economy seats (back of plane) did not get an amenity bag (ear plugs, toothbrush, eye mask)."
Pros: "I flew from NY to Phuket via Cathay Pacific which is a 22 hr flight! The crew was pleasant and friendly and took excellent care of my family and I. I would fly with them again anytime."
Cons: "My only complaint, if I have to make any suggestions would be more leg room."
Pros: "Given we were in economy for a 15+ hour flight, things went very well. Seat was okay, food better than average, entertainment was reasonable."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I was in economy, and would have preferred business, but that’s what I paid for so all is well."
Pros: "Although we booked the fight online, we were able to call the airline directly and got seat assignments for all the flights. Very pleased to speak to a person than navigate on computer."
Cons: "Traveled from London to Hong Kong. Crew was disinterested and disorganised. No snacks available in galley."
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: "Flight Attendant gave us good excuse!!"
Cons: "Bad service and cheap food."
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."
Pros: "Service and timing"
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "Overall service excellent."
Cons: "The gap time between the connecting flight is short u have to pass the security and after that a long walk going to the gate of the next flight other than that it's excellent. My concern is if the passenger has a health problem he/she going to have a shortness of breath. The crew/staff who assist me excellent."
Pros: "The crew are very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Wish they would improve the food, the bathroom, and the cleanness of blanket and pillow please. It was such long flights from Boston to Hong Kong round trip to stuck in there. The quality and hygiene are important."
Pros: "The entertainment offering is excellent and the flight schedule into Sapporo is ideal."
Cons: "Staff are not as friendly and knowledgable as other airlines I have flown in Asia. Staff need to take control of the plane and have people prepare for take off a lot quicker than they do. I only experience this with Cathay and not other Asian airlines."
Pros: "The entertainment offering is excellent and the flight schedule into Sapporo is ideal. The food was great and came out at the right times."
Cons: "Staff are not as friendly and knowledgable as other airlines I have flown in Asia."
Pros: "the aircraft is new and comfortable."
Cons: "the meals are not as good as the past. the meal did not have entree and dessert even the maincourse was not as good as previous flight. i think the CX was curbing the expense on its meals."
Cons: "I felt the food was stale and not good at all."
Pros: "Great crew & good complimentary food"
Cons: "More seat pitch"
Pros: "The flight was on time and fairly clean."
Cons: "The seats are so crowded and we were jammed in like sardines. There was insufficient ventilation and it was too warm and stuffy. Not comfortable."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and loved the food."
Cons: "For economy class, nothing."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Please make an announcement to passengers to not be dismissive if their surroundings. Passenger in front of me was has no regard for people behind him. Kept throwing himself in seat aggressively which cause water/food on trail to fall over. Thanks"
Pros: "Great attentive crew."
Cons: "Boarding has no groups, seats are small"
Pros: "Wonderful on board service from the crew"
Pros: "Flight crew was on top of things. Flight was smooth and ontime."
Cons: "A bit cramped in the economy class. Could have been more room for the money we had to spend on tickets"
Cons: "You could have had my luggage arrive. Now I don’t know where it is"
Cons: "Delayed flight."
Pros: "3 - 2 seat arrangement and lots of leg room. Excellent boarding."
Cons: "Bread of sandwich was dry."
Pros: "It was a lovely easy flight, always lovely flying star alliance."
Cons: "Such a quick flight, everything was appropriate for that. Unsure exactly what would make it better"
Pros: "friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "organise priority exit when we have a delayed arrival, so that those who have a train or flight connection can get out quicker"
Pros: "Outstanding service by the crew."
Cons: "Seats in economy area little cramped"
Cons: "Boarding time needs to be longer. Also, too little time between connecting flights."
Cons: "Swiss precision"
Cons: "45mn late"
Cons: "Swiss does not know how to handle their own problems and hurt passengers in the process."
Pros: "Really good flight. Clean,on time, efficient. Early arrival even"
Cons: "I was asked to check my carry-on. I have used this carry-on more than 50x without an issue. I have even put it in the smaller compartments on smaller Bombardier jets. I don't have an issue with being asked to check luggage, but I resent being asked when others are allowed to take their carry-on onto to the plane without issue. Right in front of me while I was waiting for a baggage tag, others were being checked in with carry-on equal to mine and allowed to take it onto the plane. I can only surmise that my ticket limited me to one bag onto the plane, although they would not tell me this. This was not clear when I booked the ticket nor when I checked in on-line. I had a 40 minute connection in Zurich so was very concerned that my luggage would not make it. Luckily, it did make it to my next stop. Swiss Air seems to have different restrictions than other airlines which I have encountered before. I take ownership that I should be aware of a tickets restrictions but this was a multi-leg trip (5). However, I will tend to avoid Swiss air in the future, to avoid having to research their unique restrictions."
Pros: "I enjoyed the 7 lay over. Took a train to the city (12 minutes ), walked around and shopped, ate and tracked back with the train . A nice stop over"
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?"
Pros: "Lots of room because plane was half full"
Cons: "I arrived almost early enough to get on an earlier flight. I think if I'd pleaded a bit more..."
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "No leg room very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Great seat, wide enough for an adult and a 2 year old to sit in. Food was nice, but didn’t make you go wow."
Cons: "TV was a bit small"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, smaller aircraft"
Pros: "Crew memebers were so kind at all times. Even thou’ it was a short flight they gave us a free snack and beverages AND a bonus chocolate!"
Cons: "Nothing it was all great! Even music was playing while we waited on the plane."
Pros: "There was a very long line at the check in counter on the way back. Many people were nervous about missing their flights. Apparently the counter computers were out of order and they only had 2 stations to support the passengers at a very busy time. Other than that, everything was smooth and pleasurable."
Cons: "Boarding chaotic- no clear lines people pushing ahead which I am not used to- my handluggage was ok’ed at origin in US- was pulled aside in Zurich based on my “ ticket”- it was perfectly well suited and not oversized. In plane half of overhead compartments were filled with coats when told that these should go under seats. No consistency between announcements and behavior of crew."
Pros: "Check in easy"
Cons: "Weren’t told enough about delays ... very tight seating crew was friendly"
Cons: "This flight was missed due to the delay of the first flight."
Cons: "30 mins late both ways"
Pros: "I’ve flown SWISS Air twice in the past 6 years and I’ve never had an issue, always a great experience!"
Pros: "We flew Miami to Zurich, then Zurich to Rome. The international leg was awesome. The intra-European flight was less impressive. We “self-boarded” which was new to us - and wasn’t explained. The seats were smaller and there was only the drop down screens for every 2-3 rows, but otherwise, for a less than 2 hr flight, it was fine."
Cons: "Boarding wasn’t fully explained for those of us who are not Swiss or German. I slept thru “lunch,” which apparently was a sandwich - but that’s more than many American airlines provide you on similar flights!"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I ordered a kosher meal and did not get it. The seats are very uncofmfortable. When the one in front puts their seat back it goes almost in to the face of the one behind."
Pros: "Good clean service that Swiss is known for."
Cons: "There’s never overhead space for carryon. Ever since they went to lift, I have had to put my luggage in a row near the rear, making me wait until the plane almost complete Disembarks before able to get the bag."
Pros: "The crew was both fun and efficient. The food was definitely a step ahead of American owned airline companies. Very good choices of movies and entertainment."
Cons: "We've got no complaints."
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?!"
Cons: "1h45 departure delayed with no compensation."
Pros: "The food provided and the service was excellent."
Cons: "The space between the seats are super small and uncomfortable. For a long flight you can barely sleep and your legs hurt after a while."
Pros: "Boarding without frills. On-time departure. Overall good food. Great cabin crew; they took care of a toddler with a fever and her mother."
Pros: "overall very satisfied"
Cons: "no issues"
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: "See above"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late. This is my second experience in a week with Swiss flights being 2-4 hours behind."
Pros: "What I liked is that they didn't really focus on the weight I had little more weight and they didn't really make an issue for me"
Cons: "Geneva airport is so busy on the weekend I had to stay in the line for 20 minutes it's a little annoying"
Cons: "smooth & efficient friendly crew"
Cons: "They checked at the gate all our hand luggages to make sure we didnt exceed the 8 kilo mark. This is very cheap and only suitable for the low cost airlines. I expect swiss air as a higher class flight to turn a blind eye on this matter"
