Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Time schedule Better customer services"
Pros: "Seems that the exit row seat was very narrow!"
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "Food was good and plentiful."
Cons: "There was no way for us to reserve seats with extra leg room 48 hours before the flight. Had to sit in agony for a 9 hour flight because of height"
Pros: "Flight was on time, service onboard inspite of short flight, and the scenery of the Alps was breathtaking"
Pros: "Service god"
Cons: "Seat was broken. Would not recline. Challenging when already very tight Entertainment did not respond to use English as language choice"
Pros: "Swissair seating is cramped with 10 across in coach in Boeing 777. The only reason for not giving "poor" rating on this particular ZRH-SFO flight, was the empty seat next to me."
Cons: "Next time, I will give Turkish Airlines a chance, because their aircraft seats only 9 across in Boeing 777 coach. On the SFO-BUD flight, the connection is through Istanbul, but the flight time is the same 15 hours, as on the SFO-ZRH-BUD route. In addition, two checked bags are free in coach."
Pros: "Crew were amazing."
Pros: "Swiss Lounge, food excellent."
Cons: "everything was very good"
Pros: "The crew was superlative, and after I was stuck for an hour at passport control I found the captain waiting with my dog(in his crate) to make sure of his well being. He said he made sure he kept the climate control at 20c the whole time on the plane. You hear all these animal horror stories but this went above and beyond."
Pros: "There were good entertainment options though I didn’t use them"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2.5 hours, during which we had boarded but were told we could not leave our seats even for the bathroom. We were offered a cup of water once during this delay which is inexcusable. (We were also woken up to serve dinner at 1am so that was incredibly inconvenient for an overnight flight) On top of that, I, as well as many others missed our connecting flight. Personally I missed my connection by 20 minutes, which seems a reasonable amount of time to hold a connecting flight with so many people from our flight on that next one. In missing by only 20 minutes, we have lost an entire day of our trip and are spending 9! hours in the airport today. There was no communication between flights clearly. Despite there being an earlier flight we could’ve been placed on after missing our connection - we did not get booked on this flight. I asked why and they just randomly placed people on random flights with no regard for when we showed at the desk. In this scenario, a first come first serve would have alleviated an absolutely awful experience. I will never fly Swiss Air again and will urge people I know to not fly this airline. The experience was extremely frustrating, the best response from an employee was “that’s all I can do for you” and I wish it on no one."
Pros: "Swiss Air is great."
Cons: "Boarding started 20 mins late, once on board was moved to accommodate a family to sit together. No objection to them sitting together but how is it possible that they’re in that situation to begin with. Flight was overbooked so crew offering cash to delay for a later flight, which on a Sunday evening is an unappetising proposect"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and re-booked today. We’re so frustrated and inconvenience us. Very stressful! Swiss Air notification in email was sent short of notice."
Cons: "I couldn’t take it. To travel to pass through Canada you need a Visa"
Pros: "Not very much to like. No effort to enhance customer service, accommodate customer needs. I fly a lot of regional and international airlines, was truly underwhelmed."
Cons: "I landed at Zurich airport at 6am with an 11 hour wait and tried to get onto an earlier us bound flight. The ground crew were awful and rude!. The dint make any effort to smile, look at me in the face or ask how I was doing!. Instead she took one look at my ticket and said “ sorry you bought through an agent, I can’t help you”. When I tried to ask if in future it is advisable to book through Swiss airlines directly, the customer service agent looked at me and said “ that’s your problem”- then she turned to her friend and kept talking! Honestly! . The airport terminal E is grey, drab and boring. No TV and only 2 hour of WiFi. I was told I had to pay to use one of their lounges just to get a recliner chair to lay my head for 11 hours. I felt like I was in a holding cell- and the flight was delayed by an hour, had a gate change that they dint tell us till less than 1hour- boy was I glad to leave Zurich!. If that is Swiss hospitality, they have a long way to go. Save your money and use another airline. You will be much happier- trust me."
Cons: "It was a 2 hour 40 minute flight. No entertainment."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Pros: "Food was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "One of our seat back entertainment units did not work. The attendants tried to reset it twice, but it did not help."
Cons: "Skopje airport personnel was very bad service ticket counter worst ever"
Cons: "Leg room."
Pros: "Seats just as small as US carriers, but in better shape, cleaner, less ratty overall. I also like that Swiss Air doesn't fuss with boarding everyone in 8 different classes. First class through one door and everyone else through the other, nice and easy."
Pros: "Great entertainment system"
Cons: "Leg room space was a bit restricted compared to what I am used to"
Cons: "No tv's on each seat. Seats are. Dry thought and uncomfortable and snacks are terrible"
Pros: "nice staff."
Cons: "lack of space. being in middle row."
Pros: "The chocolate"
Cons: "The entertainment system in the main part of the plane was not working luckily I had a good book otherwise I would have been very upset."
Pros: "The plane was clean, on time, and the staff were professional and friendly."
Cons: "I opted for the pasta dinner and it was bland and mushy. Salad was boring iceberg lettuce."
Pros: "Food wag good, plane comfortable"
Cons: "Transfer at Zurich"
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: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Old business class, old enterior, cabin too hot, seat uncomfortable due to permanent deflation of cushion."
Pros: "The seat, the airport, the service"
Cons: "The tight connection"
Pros: "Overall very pleased with the airline"
Cons: "The only complant I have is not enough leg room but the price was great so it was a compromise."
Pros: "Actually being able to breathe on this trip, as opposed to the first trip on your horrible planes."
Cons: "Being FORCED to spend extra money simply to be able to reserve the last row of two seats, in the faint hope of being able to achieve some level of comfort which was unattainable on the first flight. Having only two seats in our row and the one in front of us made the flight tolerable, but also enhanced the ludicrous ineptitude of the previous flight, wherein we were treated like so much livestock in a train car, heading for slaughter. I will never, NEVER, fly Swiss Air again."
Pros: "Aircraft clean, staff friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Lighting in aircraft is too bright Food offers by swiss in economy is terrible. My company di a not support business class travel"
Pros: "It's fine no comment"
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"
Cons: "Seats in Economy are too tight. There's no room to move, and if the person in front of you leans back, the seat is inches from your face. In an emergency, the instructions are to lean forward with your head on your knees. This maneuver is impossible."
Pros: "The flights were Just as schedule, the arrival time was even earlier than planned. The crew is always available and tries to make the flight as comfortable as it can be. The food is brilliant in comparison to other airlines. To sum up, always a good choice. * this is my 8th flight with Swiss."
Pros: "Best entertainment package of Movies/TV/Food available on commercial airlines."
Cons: "Same comments as above."
Pros: "Flight crew and gate agents were amazing"
Cons: "Boarding was late and we were asked to stand in line down the hallway for an extended period of time Movie selection small"
Pros: "Nothing! It was the first day of our honeymoon, and it was ruined by Swiss."
Cons: "This (attempted) flight was like living a nightmare. The aircraft had a problem with the A/C, so we sat in the extremely hot aircraft on the tarmac for 2 hours while they tried to fix the problem. Then, when we were finally told that the aircraft could not fly, the Swiss staff said that we were "not allowed" to leave the aircraft. After stressed passengers confronted the crew demanding to be let off the aircraft, we went back into the terminal to wait for hours in line as just two Swiss staff filled out hotel vouchers by hand for over 200 passengers. Adding insult to injury, we were then told to wait for a hotel shuttle at the curb, despite the fact that the shuttle had stopped running hours earlier at midnight. I didn't fly to Switzerland until the next day, losing hundreds of dollars on a missed hotel stay in Zurich, and travel plans. And it was an awful start to my honeymoon. The way the Swiss staff treated us was unconscionable and insulting. They have not responded to my several written complaints, so maybe Kayak can help!!!"
Pros: "I got business class upgrade, so everything was pretty much awesome. Also, Swiss Air gives you a fun little bag as a souvenir."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "It was good"
Pros: "The flight experience was efficient and secure; that's good. Staff generally professional."
Cons: "The seats were too small, and the food wasn't good enough, especially the 'salad' which consisted of some moderately old browned lettuce with no tomatoes. Happened on my flight back as well. The one time when I thought the staff faltered was when I hit the paige attendant button, and noone came for 25 mins. I ended up walking to the back of the plane and asking for water myself. I also thought some of the materials used in the plane were cheap, like the foldout tables on the back of the seat, the pillow covers, and the headphones (one of which broke midway). The headphones don't cover the noise of the jet in flight very well."
Pros: "Excellent food Attentive and smiling flight attendants"
Cons: "Cleaning after meal service was too quick. Then the galley was curtained off with no attendants in sight."
Pros: "Time of flight"
Cons: "Food and entertainment were not good. Person next to me smelled bad"
Pros: "Crew and flight service are excellent top notch. Also they are very friendly and helpful. Make flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Seats are too close together in coach, very cramped and uncomfortable if you are a tall or large person."
Cons: "There was adely because of bad wether. It made us miss the conection but none talked to us and explained what is going on."
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Food poor going to Munich , legroom poor."
Cons: "Flight left without us even though they knew our flight had landed and we were on our way. Then they rerouted us with a longer flight and our luggage didn’t make it."

Cons: "Luggage left in London and had to pay for baggage when Momondo said luggage was included"
Pros: "Crew was kind but really bad quality price, bad food, no entertainment, lot of delays..."

Cons: "The seats weren’t the most comfortable"
Pros: "Entertainment and food was good. Pilot kept good communication with passengers. Some of the inflight crew were nice and willing to help"

Pros: "Crew was great! Food was good! Boarding was fast and organized!"
Pros: "I like the price of the ticket ( thanks to KAYAK), the service on board was very good, everything on time and of course very convenient connection between Tampa and Frankfurt to fly to the further airports in Europe. Safety, security and service in good price. It is my favorite airline and rout."
Pros: "The on-board staff were excellent. Please congratulate Lufthansa on another job well done! Very good at listening and very attentive to passenger needs and passenger comfort. Bravo!"
Pros: "The issue is not with Lufthansa but with the Berlin Airport. First of all, It is not clear that you have to do the checkinn at terminal B and then come back to the gate where you have to go pass security. This is when it gets even more complicated, the line is long and slow, there is only one security arch and xray machine, is took us almost an hour to go through."
Cons: "The issue is not with Lufthansa but with the Berlin Airport. First of all, It is not clear that you have to do the checkinn at terminal B and then come back to the gate where you have to go pass security. This is when it gets even more complicated, the line is long and slow, there is only one security arch and xray machine, is took us almost an hour to go through."
Pros: "The staff on board the plane was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the flight! Food was delishious!"
Cons: "The ticket kiosk would not read passports. It was so frustrating to have to continuously try over and over again. With no attendant at the location and a long line, I wasn’t sure how to proceed. There were plenty of people having the same difficulty. It took about 12 minutes to occomplish a minut long job."
Pros: "The service was impeccable"
Cons: "It was a bit warm"
Pros: "Crew and flight were great,love the hot towels,constant drink service,clean up after"
Cons: "Food wasn't the best I ever jad on a flight,only reason this flight didn't get solid 5 stars from me!!"
Cons: "The food was not good at all. The economy seats are uncomfortable and you should be able to walk around the plane, especially on a 9 plus hour flight."
Pros: "food was above average drinks were provided often entertainment selection was great staff was well mannered and smiling"
Pros: "Overall, the main leg to Frankfurt was fine for entertainment and boarding; the staff was pleasant; but, the seats on all legs were ridiculously tight, and the planes were packed like sardines. I was stuck on window seats on 2 of 3 legs, despite requesting window seats, and the comfort on all legs was terrible. In future, I will take advantage of an upgrade offer from the Airline."
Cons: "Read previous comments on likes. In summary, the flight was too full, and the service for my seating was OK. That is it... OK."

Pros: "process of online check-in - fully automated so just few clicks on link (without entering booking number etc) which I received by email and I was ready to go"
Cons: "bus in Frankfurt"
Cons: "I did not like the bathroom downstairs."
Cons: "No seating area at or near the gate we boarded at, and as boarding was delayed, many people ended up standing for some time because we did not wish to wander too far and then be late for boarding."
Pros: "everything except the fact that no explanation was given why the plane was delayed by an hour and a half"
Cons: "Food was not very good for a few euros mote per passenger food could improve a lot"

Cons: "Seats are hard"

Pros: "I liked everything else except the seats.The in flight entertainment had good decent options. Boarding happened on time. Staff was friendly. Flight reached on time. Food was decent for a vegetarian."
Cons: "I had a very comfortable sleep in this night flight due to the seat. Very little leg room, I got the last seat of the mid section which didnt recline much. I couldn't hold a comfortable sleeping position all through the night which made me come out with a negative feeling."
Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "Sat in the middle of 4 people for a long flight...was not able to sleep at all."
Cons: "I wanted to check 2 bags, even though you only get one free checked bag for economy international. The desk agent at check-in wouldn't check my second bag and didn't know how much the fee even was for the second bag. She was not exactly pleasant, which might have been because it was 430 in the morning but still. I just ended up carrying on two pretty big bags. The crew ended up gate checking one for me in Frankfurt which was nice. But I would have paid not to carry that dumb thing around with me through the giant Frankfurt airport. Other than the one desk woman in Prague, everything else was good."
Pros: "Seats were ok better than delta or American airline but not much"
