Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "the crew were so nice"
Cons: "not enough room between seats"
Pros: "The crew service was very good, as was the food. The only complain is about the entertainment, hope to update the touch screen."
Pros: "This was my first and last time I will ever fly with Swiss airline-it’s been 4 days and I still didn’t receive my baggage and I had all my medicines in them,that’s including my carry on bag too,because it was taking from me @ the gate and I was told I will get it at my final destination,which I didn"
Cons: "I just would like to get my baggage- which is been 4 days since my arrival and they can’t even tell me where they are at!!!...."
Pros: "Flight left on time & arrived on time."
Cons: "Quality of the snack could be improved."
Pros: "The food was great and the other flight attendants were kind and understanding."
Cons: "There was a flight attendant who was of an older demographic who was extremely rude to me and not accommodating at all to myself, my husband, or my children. She had an attitude and seemed irritated by my questions, concerns, and overall being there. We had an issue with seating and no seats together with our 4 and 7 year old."
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!"
Cons: "2 hour delay and 3 crying babies on a red eye."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Valencia is probably the least user friendly airport. Security personnel there are unbearable. Boarding took unnecessarily long. Luggage took close to 30 min in Zurich"
Pros: "Cabin crew were efficient"
Cons: "Open check in counters on time as scheduled. They were half hour late at least"
Pros: "Awesome business class seat, or rather throne"
Cons: "Limited selection of movies"
Pros: "Crew was lovely! Friendly and happy. Well organized and responsive."
Cons: "Overseas flight seats were tight going and coming, and being that long a flight you feel you are sitting on top of your neighbors. Air quality descends on a long full flight, it became claustrophobic by the end. There was only an option for vegetarian-vegan, but I am not vegan. I won't do that again. My daughter's bag didn't make to SFO, even though we were early to check in."
Cons: "Having no entertainment in the flight"
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "Hard to see monitor for films and to hear through earpiece."
Pros: "Crew great service"
Cons: "Boarding was slow —delayed takeoff for nearly an hour"
Pros: "Missed this flight because the first one was late"
Pros: "Though I was never sent an email for my daughter's check in, I had a different reservation for her but still under my name and same email, when I called on the phone the people were pleasant. They still never provided me with an email though and information allowing me to have my daughter checked in. they only provided me with her reference number."
Cons: "All in all we had a poor experience and my family and I were disappointed. I'm about to book yet another ticket for my brother, but this time I'm not considering Swiss Air. Just so you know, I'm a very positive person and appreciate every polite and courteous gesture. Unfortunately this experience didn't allow me to do so."
Cons: "That it wasn’t a flight to denver"
Pros: "Ease of check in and ease of boarding. The non-stop flight was at an excellent price"
Cons: "Metal box under the seat cramped leg room. Seat jutted into the aisle, so I got bumped by every cart and everyone going to the lavatory."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly on the rebooked flight the next day through Vienna to Newark USA. The flight on Austrian airlines was quite comfortable, good food and entertainment for the long flight. Boarding and deboarding all very smooth. Very helpful SWISS staff helped locate our luggage when we missed connecting flight the previous day."
Cons: "Thunderstorm at Zurich caused delay of our flight into Zurich, and we missed original connecting flight to USA. Many other travelers affected and there were no other flights that day. One wonders if they could have held the flight for one hour or so to allow everyone to make the flight. There was a huge line, 2-3 hours of waiting, at SWISS transfer desk to rebook. It took another 2 hours to locate our luggage. I believe SWISS were required by EU regs to provide overnight accommodations and meals. But the hotel was 30+ km from the airport and we were not confident we would have transport in the morning to make our rebooked flight. Because we could not take the chance already being delayed by a day, we booked an airport hotel at our own expense. Overall experience of the missed connection was negative based on the airline's (SWISS) procedures, but the individual SWISS staff helping us were all helpful and made extra effort to accommodate."
Pros: "We like being able to check our ski equipment without extra charge. Service is consistently professional and courteous."
Cons: "Being charged for seat selection. The late hour of departure for the Boston to Zurich flight."

Pros: "Service was excellent and very friendly."
Cons: "The seats are terrible. Narrow, the armrests edgy and only partially movable. A large metal box under the seat takes away 2/3 of the legroom. The entertainment system is outdated, screen has no contrast and can only be viewed at a straight angle, which is impossible as soon as the seat is reclined."

Pros: "Very smooth flight. Everything was perfect."
Cons: "The airline cancelled my ticket because they said I was not on my earlier flight two weeks prior. This was absolutely not true. I had taken the flight and also checked bags. For an airline to cancel someones tickets and not notify them is highly unethical."
Pros: "We struggled to get the system to add our bags. Never got it to work and had to pay at check-in. It was even worse coming back! When bad weather caused delays and we missed our connecting flight from Frankfurt to Istanbul they put us on Turkish Airlines which was fabulous!!"
Cons: "Lufhtansa is slipping. They are acting like a budget airline when the expectation is for a full service airline. The online check-in would not let us add bags even though we tried for 3 hours. Not impressed with this."

Pros: "Very nice personals, I'm so happy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and LH had booked too tight a connection (55 minutes) so we missed our flight and had to stay overnight. I was unable to check in on line due to bad wifi and was assigned the last row of seats that don't recline."
Pros: "Lufthansa, always competent and pleasant. Everything works well. Very reliable. Business Class seats are competent. No complaints. Not overly plush but everything works. Same with the service. If consistency is what you’re looking for then Lufthansa can’t be beat. It’s the Lexus of the airline industry. Not Mercedes or Rolls Royce though."
Cons: "The food is never exceptional on Lufthansa. No low carb or low fat alternatives. Heavy cream is a hallmark. Again, Noor exceptional but good enough. Here, I think American, Delta and United have done a better job recently."
Pros: "Service is excellent. On time."
Pros: "Great service across the board! Wonderful, experienced staff!"

Pros: "Our stewardess from Toronto to Germany was the best that I have ever had."
Cons: "Great trip."
Pros: "We were not cramped like US domestic flights. Bathrooms were kept cleaner."
Cons: "One of the boarding crew member in Bucharest, a younger bearded male wearing glasses, was extremely rude to my husband. Boarding started a bit late, and I had to run to the ladies room. The ladies room was crowded and housekeeping was frustrated about the mess left behind by some ladies. Meanwhile my husband was approached by the above described crew member. When my husband told the crew member that I was at the bathroom, the crew member start yelling at my husband stating : I don't care, call her, u are late". When I finally arrived, there were 2 more couples behind us. People were also at the plane's door awaiting to board and find their seats. We were not late. The crew member was totally unprofessional by the way he approached my husband, the tone of his voice and his comments. My husband doesn't speak Romanian and he told me about the incident while walking my towards the plane. I couldn't go back and get the crew member's name."
Pros: "service was great"
Pros: "Even I fly Lufthansa all the time with miles and more it makes you IT'S LIKE TOILET PAPER...VERY DISAPPOINTED...."
Pros: "GREAT BEER EXCELLENT AIRLINE!"
Pros: "Boarding staff was cooperative On time departures and arrivals"
Cons: "Crew in Lufthansa are racist. Don't want to elaborate here but trust me for this. Bad quality food. They don't even have sufficient food for everyone. I didn't get two meals on one flight. Loo's are not maintained. Crew too rude. Had called a flight attendant for service but didn't show up until an hour (exactly an hour). Later I had to get up and take it. Can write an essay on my whole journey."
Cons: "since my flight was canceled, I did not stay in the hotel and i still had to pay for it! Lufthansa or brussels or both, screw you!"
Pros: "Price was right. Aircraft was clean & maintained to high level. On time departure and arrival."
Pros: "Flight attendants pretty good. Got lucky with one of the only 2-seater rows in the back of the plane. Good entertainment options."

Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above And landing was extremely hard.!"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment was slightly inadequate."
Pros: "Great food and entertainment options."
Cons: "Very slow boarding process. A lot of the boarding crew just standing around waiting instead of moving the passengers thru to board. A half hour delay ensured due to the slow boarding process. Seemed to have no clue how to board efficiently. Seats a little cramped in economy. Passenger who was disabled - could not stand on his own - was seated in an aisle seat and passengers had to climb over him to get in and out the entire flight. Should have been seated in a different seat since he never stood up."

Pros: "The flight wasn't completely full so it was comfortable not having anyone sitting next to me. Food was good. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "transfering from one flight to another is a bit of a headache as the gates were very far away. I didn't have a long layover but fortunately my first flight landed a little early. Otherwise there may have been a risk of not making it. Not sure why they would put connecting flights so far apart."
Pros: "The UAL 747 was not a spring chicken anymore, looking a bit tired and faded, but the flight was uneventful and safe. The usual crying babies (WHY do parents feel the need to bring infants on board when the babies are unhappy and have no idea what's going on?!?) and customers with pneumonia (or maybe SARS or Ebola???) that you'll find on most full aircraft. I survived the earsplitting crying and the contagious coughs unscathed, so I'm satisfied with the flight."
Cons: "Crying babies, contagious respiratory diseases (standard for flights these days), aging aircraft."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable as I had the exit row"
Cons: "Flight was late by an hour taking off from DXB."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "I got charged for bags from Fort Lauderdale to Toronto than Toronto to Halifax"
Cons: "On the choice of audio entertainment, it uses Stingray which, just like radio broadcast for each category with no choice of album for personal preference, kind of disappointed. I like the previous menu with album choices."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Rough air"
Pros: "New plane in the excellent condition. Leg room in economy not bad. Crew friendly and efficient. Boarding worked well."
Cons: "The main meal was pretty dreadful. Grilled chicken with what I think was mashed potato, but it was difficult to be sure. Watery and tasteless. Accompanied bizarrely by a tomato sauce (which did taste of something). Hard to identify the ethnicity."
Pros: "Lots of legroom. Great free movies."
Cons: "No free snacks. You had to pay for headphones."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly. They were very accommodating and genuine."
Cons: "The washrooms should be cleaned during the flight."

Cons: "Very small plane. No snacks offered."

Cons: "Extremely cold on the plane"
Pros: "The entire boarding process, takeoff, staff were all good."
Cons: "The entertainment system went down mid flight and I was unable to finish watching a show. Not happy about this."
Cons: "The fact air canada booted me and my year and a half year old off the plane. They gave me no compensation for the fact that they did this. So not impressed I never made it to Montreal"
Cons: "Flight delayed, rescheduled and didn't apologize and didn't compensate for the inconvenience. Staff is rude"
Pros: "on time."
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2hrs"
Pros: "Quick easy flight. Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Kept us up to date and gave us a lunch voucher."
Cons: "We had a 4 hr weight in St John's"
Cons: "Connection was two short when flight was delayed 15 minutes would have missed next flight. Had to change to different later flight ended up getting into St. John at a very difficult time to try and find our way in a new place. Flew direct to St. John."

Cons: "There was some confusion during boarding."
Pros: "Boarding was very well-organised ands clearly explained."

Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated and not functional"
Pros: "Delayed and still on time overall great experience"
Cons: "I had a special service request and it was not honored, not sure if it was due to flight delays or just not good customer service, I was disappointed because my flight changes three times before the trip and I placed two calls to the airline prior to trip to ensure my special needs were requested and confirmed."
Cons: "From Toronto to London the price they charge is about the same as I pay from Toronto to Dubai using emirate or ettihad which is twice the distance. Toronto to London is a busy route so why charge such a high fare? Food. Be prepared for food that comes straight out of a cafeteria's frozen items. Entertainment. Slightly better than Turkish airline's which isn't an achievement by any means. Old aircrafts which don't have air vents. They really don't offer anything to you except charge you a lot for the busiest routes in the world. Try other airlines."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and seemed willing to help."
Cons: "The cabin was very cold during the 12+ hour flight, and the food was not very good."
Pros: "I really like how friendly the flight staff was. The women and men were always smiling and courteous! They loaded the plane quickly and easily all while being helpful and smiling. On my flight from Moncton to Montreal I needed several vomit bags just in case some of my cousins wedding drinks wanted to come up. The stewardess quickly grabbed several for me and was very kind. Luckily nothing came up and I felt great at the end of the flight!"
Cons: "I don't fly as often as used to, but I've noticed that flight services have definitely gone down hill. Flying Air Canada was refreshing, so I don't have anything negative to say except I really wish I'd won tickets for my family and I back to Canada on Air Canada, hahaha!"
Pros: "Personnel were friendly aircraft was clean"
Pros: "customer services"
Cons: "Our entertainment system was broken."

Cons: "A shame to connect in Toronto!"
Pros: "No issues."
Cons: "Everything was cool."
Cons: "My tv didn't work"
Cons: "The plane was on the edge of departure when I rushed aboard. The server waiting at boarding had a patronizing attitude. As if to say, "Why are you late?""
Cons: "My flight was re-routed due to weather then. We had to wait a couple of hours for fuel then the pilots had to switch. It was horrible. The crew asked us to remain on the flight so we could leave faster which was lie. The smaller airport had food they didnt want us to go down and eat. It was an aweful experience. I paid extra money to get to cali earlier and ended up later than I wouldve if i had gone with the cheaper flight."
Cons: "seats to close together very uncomfortable"
