Pros: "The crew was friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "The plan was very hot and made the experience less than desirable."

Cons: "Checkin at Jakarta needs fine tuning. Checkin in started 30mins later than what the QR rep informed me an hr previously. QR lounge needs upgrading."

Pros: "طيران ممتاز"

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."

Pros: "crew were all very nice & eager to please. they did keep refreshing the bathrooms which was needed."
Cons: "seat was next to bathrooms which were used constantly & the noise made it difficult to sleep. seat did not recline & seemed to be at an uncomfortable angle. flight was full so nothing could be done. entertainment very out dated as far as movies & you do need them on a 16 hour flight!"

Pros: "service, cleanliness"
Cons: "seats too narrow, but understandable"

Cons: "Crew members were not concerned. Service was not proper and on time."

Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Everything fine"

Pros: "This flight had one of the best selections of movies I've seen on a flight.....a damn good thing given the 15-hr duration of the flight. I had so many screaming babies around me that the flight attendants helped me to move to another part of the plane. They were incredibly sympathetic and accommodating. Airlines from the USA could learn a thing or two from Qatar Airlines."
Cons: "Small seats (I'm fat, so this is my problem really)."

Pros: "The food on foreign airlines is so much better than on american airlines (they even offer something in economy class on short local flights)."

Pros: "Lots of space as the flight quite quiet. Very friendly staff."

Pros: "Overall it was a nice flight however some areas need some attention. Boarding gates were very crowded and there was no crowd management in the small area. Secondly, the food was not at all upto the mark. If you are serving sandwich atleast make it flavorful or just serve drinks on this short flight with nuts/biscuits/chocolate."
Cons: "Read on the left."

Pros: "Except turbulences everything was ok and nice .."

Pros: "The crew, Sami and Juliana in particular, were absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "Qatar Airways needs to abandon its draconian policies and disconnected, overy segregated procedures. Also, an allegedly five-star airline needs to upgrade aircraft which would make FlyDubai blush."

Cons: "The boarding process started too early and some of the passengers were annoying as they jump over you because they were not directed to the correct aisle."

Pros: "the comfort of the flight was very good."
Cons: "there could have been a little bit bigger portion of food."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Connection"

Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "I think in plain should serve international food not only Indian spicy one. may some do not like spicy"

Cons: "I was travelling with two kids, one of them an infant, in a more than 16hr long flight and I was not given a seat with basinet. Not only did I not get a basinet (which I had requested at the time of booking my flight and did get in the shorter leg of the flight) I was given seating in the very last row. The set assigned to my child had its base loose and the crew requested me to seat him at some other place temporarily because if he is not seated they will not be able to take off. The lavatory in the other section of the plane was broken and all the passengers were crowding at the one near our seats."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "I requested a vegan vegetarian meal and did not get it. I had to do with the regular meal which had a lot of dairy products to which I am allergic to. The space between rows of seats. It was really crammed in Economy and we are a petite thin family!"

Cons: "Better choice of movies and classical music"

Pros: "Amazing - they had a full dinner for a 9:55pm flight, with real silverware, complementary alcohol, for economy passengers! Crew extremely professional and efficient."

Cons: "Not having to go to a different, further away airport because I missed my connection. Not having my luggage go missing and not get delivered within 24 hours."

Pros: "The crew was polite and continuously offering drinks, headphones and food/snacks. Kept us comfortable and happy during the flight!"

Cons: "Legspace in economy class was probably good back in 1975, but in 2019 not acceptable anymore"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable, food was very good."

Pros: "Cabin cleanliness isgood"
Cons: "Food is bad"

Cons: "Crew was rude and slow"

Pros: "Short flight, no entertainment. They still offer free snacks on short flights, a plus, but it was an almost frozen cheese sandwich. A Little bag of pretzels would be better. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding is confusing. Bad lines, unorganized, and people pushing. They should probably come up with a better system."

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"

Cons: "Pleasant overall experience"

Pros: "Great cabin crew!"
Cons: "While waiting to board SFO-ZRH flight Swissair personnel walked around and randomly pulled out passengers from line to check luggage dimensions. Since manufacturers adhere to airline baggage standards, no violations were found during checks. This misguided effort only resulted in publicly humiliating Swissair customers. Boarding process was pure pandemonium...this was the first time in recent memory, where all coach passengers were invited to board at the same time! Very inefficient! Crowded seating in coach,with ten passengers sandwiched in across Boeing 767 aircraft. Competing airlines flying identical aircraft have nine across seatings Thin seat cushions cause leg cramps after a few hours."

Cons: "We were scheduled for a 55 minute layover in Zurich which was not nearly enough time. Our plane was 10 minutes late in landing but our next flight was delayed 5 minutes. We had to take a bus from the plane to the terminal, go through immigration with very long lines, take a tram to our departure terminal and then run to our gate which was at the end of a very long hallway. Luckily they held the plane but it was very stressful and exhausting getting to our plane."

Pros: "Flights attendant proficinal , food was great , first time experience ice cream on airplane served. Seats are comfy and wide , much space between seats compare with other airlines."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Missed this flight because the first one was late"

Cons: "Lost luggage’s. Delayed trip"

Cons: "Worst travel experience ever and I’ve traveled the world. Red eye flight delayed for 3 hours. Missed connection flight with not a lot of options. Waited for another 3 hours to get rebooked and have to stay at Zurich overnight and only to find our checked luggage is no where to be seen. First and LAST time we fly Swiss Air!!!"

Pros: "Helpful staff and pleasant easy flight."
Cons: "I don’t appreciate the bar being set so high, because now other flights will seem sub-par"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats were horribly uncomfortable"

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and helpful."
Cons: "We were glad to have extra leg room at the bulk head, however, the seats themselves were extremely narrow. My elderly father found it exceptionally difficult to sit and stand from the seat. The seat table creates an ever tighter fit for someone with special needs."

Pros: "I thought the attendants were nice and that it was an easy, relaxing flight."

Pros: "We did finally take off for our trip and get to our destination. The movies were tremendous help to pass the time. The food was delicious for hungry tired people"

Pros: "Swiss service relayable"

Pros: "staff was very nice"

Pros: "The crew was very efficient and very helpful. They were constantly attending to passenger’s needs."

Cons: "Like most planes, there was not enough leg room."

Pros: "on time, good food, pleasant service"

Pros: "short travel time"
Cons: "the landing was way too drastic. The pressure during landing was not gentle and I had a real hard time trying to allow my hearing to come back. The blood pressure in my head felt like my head would explode. My head hurt for a long time. Did not like the flight at all."

Pros: "Service, entertainment and food are top notch!"

Cons: "We were packed into the airplane like sardines!"

Pros: "I liked the service, the food, the entertainement, the super kind personel, would only fly with them :) Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"

Cons: "Have to take a bus to the plane for boarding. Terrible cold sandwich wrapped in a partly open loose paper bag wrap. Short flight I realize, but that was bad, especially in business class."

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "The aisle seat I purchased wasn't miserable like so many economy seats are. But I did have to pay for it!"
Cons: "I had such a miserable experience getting to Florence on Swiss Air that I sent a letter of complaint WHILE ON VACATION!! Really. It was a nightmare... not the way you want to start a vacation. I had difficulty booking my daughter's seat online for the return, but didn't have access to phone service while abroad. In my complaint letter to Swiss Air I requested they place us together. I never got a response and upon check in, they had my son and me in our purchased seats and my daughter at the back of the plane. I asked them if they could do anything about it (I was even willing to give up my seats to move to the back...) yet no one seemed concerned or interested in helping to make this work. They also had no knowledge of my complaint or appeared concerned about my prior experience. I'm so over Swiss Air. My experience with the employees on the phone prior to my first departure, the lack of response to my email, and a disinterested and inattentive staff on my return, have all convinced me to choose a different airline next time."

Cons: "Had 1 day for quick trip to London. Two hours through security In Geneva and 4 hours late arrival on Swiss at LHR. I can tell you this, the Geneva Airport and Swiss DO NOT run like Swiss Watches. They both get F's."

Pros: "Great flight, great crew. Seats were very comfortable. much space for legs and comfortable for sleep."

Pros: "In general it was perfect. Chocolate from Suiss at the end of the flight is just amazing!"
Cons: "Because it was a long flight, we would have liked to see a bit more the staff passing around slowly, so we could have asked for water in the night. The seats were not as incredible than the first flight from Spain to Zurich."

Pros: "Checki-in via mobile app was easy, as was baggage dropoff at the airport. Both airport staff and flight crew were efficient, courteous, and friendly. Excellent service, good good, nice selection of entertainment."

Pros: "General good service, food was good"
Cons: "Airplane wasn't clean, we had hair on the headrest cover and asked one of the crew members for new headrest cover but was ignored."

Cons: "The crew at the check-in was rude, confused, and ignorant, and flight attendants were forgetful and ignorant."

Pros: "Boarding and staff okay"
Cons: "Terrible plane ; no room , the most miserable flight we have ever been on"

Pros: "I have been flying to Greece and back many years now. I have never seen,such comfort in a plane,such great service,so many snacks and meals,and the crew was coming by every 30-45 minutes for water. We were served Swiss chocolate and also the best ice cream I have had in my life. Best flight and best plane I have flown in my life."

Pros: "We were able to purchase an upgrade at the airport -- was a great experience."

Pros: "The entertainment consoles are great, plane is modern and clean, staff on board are very considerate and helpful. Flight left and landed on time and our luggage arrived intact. Everything that we paid for we got."
Cons: "The space between the seats is very small, and the seats recline very far, I found myself a bit too tall to fit in them comfortably, as even reclined my neighbors seat was nearly pressed against my nose. My much shorter girlfriend did not have this problem, and slept through the whole flight. SWISS only has one or two check in agents at LAX, and the wait was about 3hr to process the 300-odd passengers on our 777. I know they're only running a flight or two a day from LA, but I am sure there's a speedier and more efficient way to check us all in."

Pros: "Excellent service ans quality flight"

Cons: "Terrible seats and old.entertaineme.t system"

Pros: "This flight was absolutely amazing the staff, boarding , food entertainment and comfort were highly delightful I would book again with Swiss Airlines in a heartbeat thank you so much kayak you are amazing"

Cons: "As I had bought the tickets via Air India for a SWISS flight, I was informed that I cannot upgrade to business class, even when I was ready to pay. Inspite of being a SENATOR with the Star Alliance's Miles and More program."

Cons: "Flight late"

Cons: "Connection very very tight and stressful Had to run to connecting flight and just made it by <1 minute"

Cons: "Boarding was a zoo as the system was down -not very organized either. There was one crew member who was extremely rude and even as people boarded by her section did not greet people. Skipped a few rows with drinks and then told them there was no time to bring even a glass of water. Fortunately another crew member (who we also asked as they went by) brought water to those she had skipped who wanted it. My TV monitor was not working. Aging planes - need a thorough cleaning.

Pros: "The service was fast. The employees were kind."

Cons: "the flight info was off"

Pros: "The food was decent but poorly presented with very limited options for those with food allergies, particularly to dairy."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and very stiff, neither the parents or staff made an effort to give guests a break from the constantly screaming babies. I had two small children kicking the back f my seat for the duration of our six and half hour flight. My largest complaint is that I was unable to sleep a wink on the overnight flight due to the excessive heat in the plane. In my experience decent airlines provide their guests with air conditioning so that they can breathe and rest easy. I was absolutely miserable thanks to the heat."

Cons: "entertainment was not working! the flight to Frankfurt was late and I missed the connection to rome! crew told me to run for the connection but ad the gate they told me they had already put me on a later flight! no need to run like crazy across the airport if they had me already booked me on a later flight! missed my train connection in rome to bari...asked the airport lufthansa rep. to put me on a flight to bari but they told me they couldn't do it although there was a flight available!"

Pros: "WiFi on long flight from Detroit to Frankfurt"

Pros: "Service is outstanding in economy and puts US airlines to shame. Lufthansa is the best way to fly to Europe."

Pros: "Comfortalble trip"
Cons: "Boarding delay"

Cons: "Not well organized and food is unhealthy"

Pros: "N-o entertainment"
Cons: "All"

Pros: "The Lufthansa flight and crew were fantastic. Nice plane with amenities. It was far better than our return flight on Air Canada."
Cons: "My return on Air Canada."

Cons: "Being asked, when other passengers were around me, how much money I cary with me. This is a dangerous thing. I don't know whom I travel with, and I felt at risk knowing that other people know how much cash I have with me. Plus, the money were counted on the passageway to the plane, with people walking by. I strongly believe that you should change the method you ask and check passengers for cash. I heard other details that I shouldn't hear from another women who was also checked. What I ask is PRIVACY."

Pros: "Clean/comfortable plane with a great staff for the long flight."

Pros: "Food was excellent and the stewards were great"
Cons: "An 8 hour flight!"

Pros: "The flight from DTW to FRA was made that much better by a particular flight attendant who actually remembered it was my first time flying. She checked with me personally as we were disembarking in FRA to see how my flight was. I unfortunately did not catch her name, but she was the highlight of the flight. If I fly again, I will definitely fly Lufthansa for flight crew like her. I skipped the evening meal as I was feeling unwell, but I had the breakfast. The fresh fruit, and especially the watermelon was delicious. There just wasn't enough of it."

Pros: "The live streaming of the NBA finals game on the flight was excellent."

Cons: "Seats seemed a little small, even for economy."

Pros: "Food and eating with proper utensils, Brandy after dinner"
Cons: "Entrainment center glitch. Headphone quality."

Pros: "Fantastic gate agents!"
Cons: "The food was terrible."

Pros: "KLM never disappoints, the cabin crew was extremely kind and helpful!. The food was great, nice leg room in regular economy class, thousands of movies and tv shows...it was great!"
Cons: "Well there was a LOT of turbulence but no one can control the weather and shout out to the pilot for giving us such a smooth landing a rough weather!"

Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"

Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."

Pros: "Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Seats not great for such a long flight."

Pros: "The earphones for out two seats only worked intermittently, but the Purser, Lee-Ann handled it professionally and pleasantly. That was the only disappointment in an otherwise pleasant flight"
Cons: "The earphones could have worked!"

Pros: "I love the food"

Cons: "Inflight was better than I expected. But needs upgrading air crafts."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled and had to be rerouted on United Airlines."

Pros: "They considered my reguest of vegiterian food."
Cons: "I have no complaints."

Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."

Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"

Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."

Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"

Pros: "Overall booking and airport was ok. Food was also actually quite good."
Cons: "A comfort of the seats... well its economy class in the end. Entertainment was just dreadful - small screen with visible pixels - I was unable to watch any movie."

Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."

Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."

Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"

Cons: "Flight departed 35 minutes late"

Cons: "KLM staff in the Prague airport were some of the rudest humans I have ever met. So incredibly uncaring and outright mean."

Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."

Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."

Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."

Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."

Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."

Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."

Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Klm flight has very congested seating Getting information about eticket was pain"

Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."

Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."

Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."

Pros: "We really liked the KLM people, from the check in crew to the flight attendants."

Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"

Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"

Pros: "Plane service"
Cons: "1h30min delay at airport"

Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."

Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."
