I called months in advance with all specifications and still they were clueless. We will never fly Swiss again. I am disabled and received no help.

We entered the plane last.Our seats not were ready and we were forced to do it all alone.Rudeness and unprofessionalism of SWISS crew.The end of the vacation was spoiled. For what I paid to SWISS 100$ in advance(10 monthes)? I believe, if SWISS could not provide the paid service as expected, SWISS must return the money(100$) and apologize. Nobody apologized in Zurich, threatened to invite the police. Bad crew, bad service."
Pros: "Easy, on-time and courteous"
Pros: "Comfy seats, free drinks, pretty good food. Excellent flight attendants and an eloquent pilot."
Cons: "in NY they would not give me a seat/ boarding pass for this flight - they said i had to get one only in zurich. by the time they gave me one in zurich - it was a middle seat and there were no other seats available. i was totally squished in between 2 men [ i am a female] and the seats were sooo small and there was absolutely no room. i was totally uncomfortable and had to sit like this for 4 hours... i did not like this AT ALL"

Cons: "Seats seemed smaller but do need more entertainment options."
Pros: "At list 2 attendants were extremely not polite . Air condition was turned on 2 minutes before landing . To collect food plates from passengers took more then 2 hours . When passengers asked attendants, to evaluate when it going to happen the answer was very rude ״ you should fly business in case you want it faster " . It was a night flight and it took 3 hours to turn off the lights . One of the girls attendants told me that I have too many hand handbags with me , only 1 piece allowed . I was with 3 pieces but we were 3 persons my wife and my Childe . I was trying to explain her, but she was unable to listen . It is not Swiss I know , I like to flight Swiss , but this flight was extremely disappointing .It was many confusions with other passengers as well. wrong meals , wrong seats , no air condition, ... the flight was a nightmare"

The food is brilliant in comparison to other airlines. To sum up, always a good choice. * this is my 8th flight with Swiss."
Pros: "Coke Zero was available."
Cons: "Limited selection of movies and tv shows and only one food option."
Pros: "Most of the crew was great with the exception of curbside check-in in Denver."
Cons: "Curbside needs to stop chasing cash tips and do their jobs. If they focused on that tips would be easy to come by. The curbside attendant that took my bag didn’t even bother to check my id. He asked me my name and asked where my destination was. I told him Cincinnati as a layover then LaGuardia where he said that was wrong. He then proceeded to print a boarding pass that wasn’t mine and load my bag into the conveyor. Not 5 mins go by when I realize what happened I wound up having to go to special services to rectify the situation. Which ultimately consisted of me waiting another hour in LaGuardia to get my bag. Please delta have these curbside handlers actually want to do their job and stop chasing cash tips."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant. Boarding and deplaning was smooth and easy!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient."
Pros: "Availability of WiFi, a charging port and media options puts Delta a step (or two) ahead of their competitors. The professionalism of the crew, as well as the complimentary food/beverage options are also excellent."

Cons: "Choice of healthier snack"
Cons: "Have rhe right to carry at least one luggage per person at no cost. Besides carry on and personal item. Tickets prices and luggage costs are extremely expensive."

Cons: "Seats are so small. Flight was delayed."
Cons: "I bought a ticket thinking i bought it through kayak but I actually bought a ticket through a third party in India. Where no one spoke good English. I called the agency to find out if I needed a Visa for my visit to Australia and the told me no. So when I showed up to the airport I didn’t have the right documents and I MISSED MY FLIGHT. Also the wouldn’t just change my flight and charge me the change flight fee. They cancelled my flight entirely and made me buy a whole new ticket!!! Worst flight experience I’ve ever had and this is not my first time flying to Australia or out of country."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew. Early am departure. On board entertainment is a great selection of movies/TV etc. Clean aircraft. Comfortable seating. Great flight."

Cons: "The landing was pretty tough and we took off almost a half hour late."
Pros: "Very friendly gate attendants helped us fix the problem that our frequent flyer number had not been entered on the boarding pass. This may have been because of the booking co., Just Fly."

Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "The bathroom I used was disgusting."
Pros: "Check in Denver super helpful Gate staff hustled to turn around flight Flight crew excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed, almost missed international connections"
Pros: "Anything from free WiFi, entertainment, leg room, commentary drinks and snacks. Great service!"
Pros: "The staff was polite and snacks were good (healthy options)."
Cons: "Nothing was terrible, but due to the short flights I assume they don’t worry about having planes with entertainment available."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "In SLC they boarded by row numbers and not zones. Weird..."
Cons: "Engine problems-2 hour delay"
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Delayed due to mechanical issues. For 3 hours. No offers for free drink or wi fi. When we finally land we were on the runway for half hour."
Pros: "Smooth flight in time. Didn't realize would have to go thru another TSA security check point. Otherwise smooth flight, great communication from the captain."
Cons: "Cramped seats and the food wasn't that great. Plus final meal was served late which lead to quick eating and feeling rushed."
Pros: "Great people and crew early arrival nice passengers"
Cons: "Poor Delta DEN counter agent experience. Name on ticket didnt match Delta profile name nor TSA [rofile name. Delta counter agent would do nothing, except blame TSA. Would not check ticket name vs profile name. Happened two consecutive flights. Flight tomorrow morning has no TSA Pre clearance on boarding pass. This will be three consecutive flights. Also seated me next to a person who needed 2 seats to himself. Please never seat me next to a passenger who cannot fit in their own seat. I am switching to SWA."
Pros: "On two of the legs of the trip they notice I was a tall person with long legs and upgraded me to seats with more leg room!! I didn't even ask. Thank you."
Cons: "On the way back there were open seats with extra leg room and I asked the gate attendant if it was possible to switch my seat to one with more room and they said they only could if I paid extra."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The Entertainment sucked. Again I was sitting in comfort class which in theory should buy you more comfort and better entertainment. There was a ton of movies from the 90s and the same movie selection from about 6 months ago when I traveled with them. Also, what is going on, with having to use your own cell phone to watch movies on the plane? Whatever happened to the screens in the backseat of the front seat? I ended up with neck pain from trying to watch a movie on my phone. Delta has become very cheap. It is going into some serious decline."
Cons: "Let me just say that I’m a loyal Delta costumer until now. The flight attendants (the two women) were an absolute nightmare. They were so rude and condescending. I was carrying with me my service dog and a bag containing an expensive medication (it couldn’t go on the top bin). Despite being in the comfort class and having the seat next to me empty, we were tight for space. The flight attendants were unreasonable and forced me to put my medication on the top bin despite the fact I had told them it was extremely delicate, that it that to go upright, and that I needed to keep it with me. They did not listen and pressured me into giving them the medication. The medication could have easily gotten broken. Thankfully it didn’t but this is no way to treat a human being."
Pros: "Entertainment system is awesome and similar to what I usually see only on international flights."
Cons: "The special meal I ordered was delivered to someone else. The entertainment system wasn't functioning properly and no English susbtiles we're offered for any of the movies, unlike my previous Delta flights (for some reason there were only Chinese)"
Pros: "Crew was the best!"
Cons: "I really dislike the snack boxes. Snacks need to be more like a small sandwich or grapes, cheese and nuts. Not all that packaged stuff."
Pros: "Staff pretty friendly. Plane clean. Ran on time. Good communication. Even though shorter flight, had movie entertainment option. Before flight we had a flat tire so missed our flight. Agent extremely helpful getting us on another flight."
Pros: "Staff was courteous, flight uneventful but that's a good thing!"
Cons: "Long flight, difficult to sit that long (3 hrs plus)"
Pros: "It's a nice, comfortable flight with plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "The coffee on board is lousy, but I'm not sure that is much of a surprise."
Cons: "I fly Delta quite often, and am usually pleased with their service, but the morning of June 23 was terrible. I got to the airport in Denver at 5:30 am for a 7:30 am flight to Atlanta, and the line to check a bag was about 40 people long. I waited 55minutes to check my bag, as they kept moving the ski priority people, and people in danger of missing their flight, to the head of the line. There were obviously not enough Delta workers on staff to process all the flights at that time."
Pros: "The moviea"
Cons: "The time of night"
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice and accomadating. Even came by to refill our waters! I've never been on a flight with such friendly flight attendants!"
Pros: "Reassignment was pretty easy."
Cons: "No accommodations were available for overnight stay due to delayed flight."
Pros: "Upgraded to first class"
Cons: "No entertainment system, no power outlet...for first class this is disgraceful"
Cons: "I drove 5 hours to get to the airport and unfortunately ended up delayed because of traffic and slow shuttles from parking. I arrived 1 hour before the flight, but security was so slow I didn't get to the gat until 10 minutes before arrival. There were no gate agents present and despite banging on the gateway door and other Delta agents at the adjacent gate, no one helped me. I can only surmise that they had already given away our seats, which were award tickets, GAINED BY BEING A LOYAL DELTA CUSTOMER. The gate agents were unapologetic and useless at rebooking, and I bought a ticket from Southwest instead. As i was trying to get to my sister's wedding, and repeatedly told the agents this, their behavior was particularly abominable. DELTA, YOU'VE LOST A LOYAL CUSTOMER."
Cons: "Seats too close - I'm not that tall and my knees were jammed against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "The good the crew and the bed"
Cons: "The overheads were noisey and loud and made it difficult to sleep"
Pros: "Was able to get on a flight after ours was cancelled. Delta was in scramble mode and their gate staff worked hard ot deal with a frustrated flying populaiton"
Cons: "After paying for first class round trip airfare, we were given seats in coach in the rear of the plane, in spite of empty seats (plenty of them) in first class and economy comfort."
Pros: "Plane was clean and staff were friendly"
Cons: "The snack options were quite average"
Pros: "Flight attendants were lovely"
Cons: "Seats can be better."
Cons: "Flight late more than 3-4 hours on Frankfurt. So upset. I will never and ever try with Frankfurt again. I bought shortest way ticket to pay more money but unfortunately flight late about 3-4 hours. Money trap. I would love to have another free flight or I will post the tickets on facebook, Twitter and etc... To make a terrible flight reputation."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats, entertainment, crew attitude"
Pros: "Seat was OK"
Cons: "Food was OK, could have been better."
Pros: "Great staff and food"
Cons: "Comfort was not great and no entertainment options whatsoever"
Pros: "Crew did their best to make us happy."
Cons: "I felt duped by Lufthansa by the so called business class, where my legs barely fit, there was no entertainment, and there was no real difference at all from economy except for not having a person in the middle seat. It was equivalent to economy plus at best, but charged at business rate."
Pros: "Relatively fast flight"
Cons: "No entertainment or perks at all. And the worst thing was that before flight, they closed us in an insulated gate especially for flights to Tel Aviv, something made out of the 1980’s with a small kiosk with cold sandwiches and “espresso” from an automatic machine, if we knew this is the case, we at least would’ve bought something to eat before entering the 80’s terminal/gate."
Cons: "The flight never took off after 3 hours on board on the tarmac. There was poor communication from the staff at the airport and no compensation from Lufthansa."
Pros: "The crew was intuitive and caring. Very nice and polite"
Cons: "The is no good reason why we had to wait 1 hour in line for security as only two Security booth are active. I believe there is a room to increase the number of security mabhines and personal in that specific gate"
Pros: "best take off and landing I’ve ever experienced. 2 meals for an 8 hour flight and all the red wine I could drink!"
Pros: "Everything exceeded expectations. Lots of food, space, drinks, and excellent flight crew. Excellent video selection."
Pros: "Same crew. Really nice flight smooth and professional"
Pros: "This flight is usually fully booked but there happened to be an empty seat next to mine which was much appreciated"
Pros: "movie selection"
Cons: "I missed my lufthanza connection"
Pros: "Flight staff were kind and friendly"
Cons: "I could not push my seat back and the man in front of me pushed his back leaving me very little room"
Pros: "The bathroom downstairs"
Cons: "Late arrival inMunich, rush to connection and my luggage didn’t make it"
Pros: "Great service. everything was on time, or early. overall pleasant experience."
Pros: "Visa for India was not checked in Denver. Landed in Frankfurt and discovered that the visa was expired. Stuck in Frankfurt for 3 nights until new visa was issued. No babes the entire time I was in Germany. Arrived in Mumbai after paying the $350 US change fee and no bags. Bags finally arrived on Monday at 9AM Without clothes, toiletries and medications for 6 nights. Now I am delayed and will probably have to pay rebuke and fare change to extend my stay here."
Pros: "Lufthansa is extremely efficient, and the staff is very helpful all while being cheerful and kind. The planes are new and clean, everything was a notch above typical economy carriers. Well done!"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Lufthansa crew is usually good, so no complaints."
Cons: "Even the crew said that the plane was too crowded, and that they should have used a larger plane for such a full flight.There was no entertainment on the plane, unless you provided your own device. My flight from Chicago to Frankfurt was on a very large plane so I have no complaints, but, the plane chosen from Frankfurt to Tel Aviv was much smaller, and packed to the gills, with passengers, and luggage, and crew. The crew themselves remarked that the type of plane used for this flight was inappropriate."
Pros: "I liked that if I asked for something the crew would get to me rapidly. Extra leg room."
Cons: "Boarding process: just a lot of confusion. Inflight crew service poor: the was no time to have any brain reaction when they would pass by with coffee or anything...and when I asked for coffee the answer for a gentlemen of the crew was: coffee already passed by. Really!!?? Make sure that +$1200 are spent well. Rude or inattentive crew members shouldn’t be on flights that are that long...I had to nsist to have a miserable cup of coffee. Movie selection was poor. USB port didn’t work. Shame on you!"
Cons: "For people who are going frequently to the US because of the small airplane from FRA_TLV A321 It is not worth for me buying Primer Economy since it is mixed and in British it is all the wayTLV-PHL 2 airplanes with primer economy"
Pros: "The best in-flight service I have ever had on the Lufthansa flight from Denver to Munic!"
Cons: "LH flight from Seattle was late, and I barely made it to the LH connecting flight to TA. Landed in Tel Aviv, but my one bag didn't arrive with me. Looked for the Lufthansa desk, but there is no such thing. They have farmed out the task of dealing with lost luggage and masses of confused to irate people to another firm. There were approx 40 people trying to get some information from 4 ladies, one of whom was new. They were unable to deal with many reports at a time. How about take a number and we'll call you up in turn? Instead it was like a push and shove pressure cooker just to find out the status of said missing bag and make a report. I was dealt with last. At this time, I was exhausted and angry. The ladies were very good and very kind. They informed my ride of the delay, and told me that the lost bag would come on the next flight. They took me out of the area to get a drink and a bite to eat. We waited. It came. We drove to my destination a few hours away. Never have I had to deal with such a time consuming shambles to find out the bare minimum of information. I finished the trip and will never fly with Lufthansa again."
Cons: "We were charged a rebooking fee by Lufthansa when customs searched luggage causing us to miss connecting flight"
Pros: "The crew were very helpful and polite. The seats had plenty legroom. The food was excellent."
Cons: "We started boarding much later than originally announced. We may have arrived with little delay, however. No entertainment was available, which is not that great considering that it is a three and a half hours flight."
Pros: "The entire experience was great. Easy check-in, boarding, on time, friendly service, good food, good movies, and overall a really nice atmosphere for such a long flight. Would recommend this Flight to anyone."
Cons: "the crew was horrible and rude"
Pros: "The overall feeling of this flight was 'relaxed'...after getting over the fact, that this was a huge (two story) airplane. Short flight from Denver to Frankfurt...only 8 hours:)"
Cons: "I would have loved to be offered eye shades and ear plus, since most passengers watched movies and i wanted to sleep:)."
Cons: "The business class seats is exactly like the economy seats"
Pros: "Flight was on time comfortable good crew clean and upbeat"
Pros: "Great planes."
Cons: "Flight attendants didn't want to help me find space for my bag. There were many small pockets so I asked them to help arrange so we could fit my bags. Without even looking they said there's no room. 'I can't do that' is what I was told. So who can?? (Maybe she was a transfer from united)"
Pros: "I like the service and food. 45"
Cons: "I like food and service and they had things that make it different. 48.."
Pros: "Great service, crew attentiveness and economy comfort. Movie and music selection was good."
Cons: "Slightly larger food portion"
Pros: "Good flight good seats smooth ride."
Cons: "Boarding was not organized."
Cons: "Overall experience - will not recommend this company and will suggest another company"
Cons: "the seat. not suitable for a business category"
Cons: "The plane was extremely small and uncomfortable. There were only two lavoratories for 60+ people, the other two being reserved only for the 10+ people in first class. As a result, throughout the whole flight there was a long waiting line in the plane's aisle, causing the crew to complain angrily in German, thinking we wouldn't understand what they're saying, because they couldn't go through easily."
Pros: "I want to have it. I was expecting a serious and major company as yourself to provide it in a 3.t hours flight. This is how low cost / charters looks like."
Cons: "I area where we did the check-in is horrible. I understand there are security issues but in Frankfurt airport it is much better then Munich and I expect you to find the answer how to have both needs."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Lack of leg room!!! After my bicycle box was inspected they failed to secure my bike the way I had it in the box. Bike was flipping around in box. Bent rear brake calipers. Bent brake hoods. Rear skewers were uncoupled. No way to treat a $10,000 bike! Very upset!"
Cons: "we were with 2 kids (1 Child and 1 baby). They ground crew did not allow us to board first (like usually). We had to wait until the economy boarding, it became too crowded and was hard to reach the airplane with the kids. regards"
Pros: "I've flown on many different airlines since I was 10 years old and hands down this Lufthansa flight was the best and smoothest flight I have ever experienced. First of all, the plane was very comfortable and had good leg room. The flight staff were all extremely courteous and attentive. There was one point where I was reading in the dark and the crew member asked if I wanted the light turned on to read! Normally I don't sleep on flights, and the same crew member asked if I wanted ice cream since I don't feel like sleeping. The crew seemed to have this magic ability to make the flight more comfortable without the passenger having to even think about it, or try to ask for extra service. All of the crew were just very outstanding and organized throughout the entire flight, they were all generally very helpful and kind. By the time I got off the 14 hour flight, I didn't feel even the slightest bit tired or anxious, I was able to spend time with my friends in Budapest upon landing and stay out till 2 am without having to sleep or rest because the flight was so good."
Cons: "the waiting before the boarding, the Frankfurt airport gate for telaviv is different from the other gates, no store, no drinking water except one small counter that sell water and other food in very high prices, I except to have at least free water in the gate, excepsialy when we wait their more than hour an half"
Pros: "Great crew members, service, and flight."
Cons: "Seat (43A) in economy class in Airbus 330 is not great for oversea flight unlike I flew in LH 747-400 in the past, it does not fit 6+ ft tall people. I could not stretch my legs at all. My knee keep hitting next seat at front of me. Hello Lufthansa, are you listening?"
Pros: "The food was very good. The service, the preciseness."
Cons: "I didn't like the entertainment, there should me more options for movies in English and Arabic."
Pros: "The legs distance was poor The crew very professional"
Cons: "Leg space"
Pros: "Seats had extra legroom which was very nice."
Cons: "Screens were on by default and hard to figure out how to turn off. Ads are very annoying."
Pros: "Flight departed 30 minutes late (due to a delay with the inbound flight)but a short flight time enabled the delay to be recovered and we landed in FRA on time. A very long taxi (30 minutes) made connection time for my next flight to be very tight."
Cons: "Why do LH insist on serving the 2nd meal/beverage service in economy class until 50 minutes before the flight lands? I suspect they would argue it allows passengers to have greater rest however in Y class the passengers are awake long before......could I suggest serving the snack earlier as it prevents a very rushed service as trays are collected and cabin secured very near to the actual landing?"
Pros: "I was finally able to sleep."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good"
Cons: "Entertainment was broken in one of our seats, the seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "Such a delightful flight."
Cons: "Departure late by 25 minutes!!"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "Took a very long time to empty the plane via staircases. For a 747, I expected a jetway at Heathrow."
Pros: "I really like this airline"
Cons: "The crew were all very nice"
Pros: "Easy boarding, on-time departure, clean aircraft, friendly crew, decent food, free drinks."
Pros: "Despite having a delay in Denver, we were able to arrive on time. The crew was very friendly in greeting us as we boarded the plane"
Cons: "The boarding process was hampered by too many people putting too much carry on luggage in the overhead bins. Many put things in the overhead bins that could have been put under the seat. It didn’t seem like the crew was paying too much attention to this. In general the crew was pleasant, but there didn’t appear to be much sincerity in the pleasantries."
Pros: "Amazing crew, kind and patient"
Pros: "Orderly boarding and disembarkation."
Cons: "This airline is one of the worst in Europe, for the simple reason of putting short-term profits ahead of decent treatment of the customer. My flight across the Atlantic was 4 hours late, and BA refused to put me on the next available to Prague, even though the lateness forced me to miss the BA flight I have been booked on. Their reason referred to a technicality in the booking procedure, but actually BA has put in place "policies" aimed at their financial advantage, over and above reasonable treatment of the customer. BA's refusal to rebook me cost me a lot of inconvenience (3 hours on the phone, for one thing) plus about $150 (I am taking another route to Prague); BA was then able to sell both my original seat and an extra seat on the next flight from Heathrow to Prague. I will never fly BA again in my life if I can help it."
Cons: "The seats rows are too close - high density. The flight was late."
Pros: "Food and hospitality and staff"
Cons: "We were late 20 minutes and sat in tarmac another 15 minutes. Didn´t allow us enough time to get train, take bus, we had over 500 people lined up for bus, get through TSA, they pulled my suitcase for inspection, but didn´t look at it for 15 minutes until i called a supervisor as my connecting flight was leaving, and in fact, it had left as TSA does this purposefully and maliciously as it apparently happens all the time per ÇBritish Airways who had to reticket us. We had to return to A section another 20 minutes to be reticketed and luckily got on another flight to <madrid. Terrible experience with TSA. Very rude, angry, abusive staff."
Pros: "On board service and amenities"
Cons: "Kayak customer service"
Pros: "Nothing the worst customer service I ever had"
Cons: "The flight was canceled due to mechanical difficulties and British airways delayed helping us for 2 hours and then told us to use the phone 800 number to book a different flight. we needed to connect in London for the flight to Tel Aviv. The man on the phone barely spoke English and set us up with a flight that would not get us to our destination in time for our religious Sabbath Friday night. When we tried to explain the situation he hung up on us. We called back and tried to explain again we either spoke to the same man or another Indian man whom also spoke unintelligible English and he also hung up on us. In the mean time my wife spoke with the counter agents and they tried to find us another flight but by now other airline counters were closed. An hour later I tried the 800 number again and spoke again with the same Indian guy, when I asked to speak to a manager he gave me a hard time then finally said ok, put me on hold which I stayed for a while and realized he just put me on hold indefinitely. Finally after being in the airport for 9 hours we found a flight from United and a family member booked it online for us which we took to Tel Aviv and got us here only 2 hours later than our original flight which had a 12 hour layover in London and we were going to spend time touring but did not get to. As far as I am concerned British Airways has done a horrible job and no one should ever fly with them again. Unfortunately our flight home is with them I hope it goes smooth."
Pros: "They were extremely accommodating."
Pros: "it was very clean on a board."
Cons: "even water for money"
Pros: "The food was good and there was a great movie selection."
Cons: "I felt like a sardine. The seats are very tiny and there are so many of them."
Pros: "Crew were exceptional in service friendliness and attentiveness."
Pros: "Great crew, quiet flight, good food,"
Pros: "the staff"
Cons: "aircraft, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Entertainment, blanket"
Cons: "Not enough leg room, chocolate dessert"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and staff was very attentive as well as respectful of us when I was sleeping"
Cons: "There was condensation leaking from the ceiling of the cabin. A crew member said this was normal, would have been nice to know this ahead of time to reassure me that for a first-time overseas flier that this is normal."
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "IFE was not good the equipment is very old and selection is limited"
Cons: "It gave me a different return date"
Pros: "Service, food, safety video"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Direct filght"
Cons: "Limited entertainment options"
Pros: "Fligth attendants of British, Iberia provided excellent and friendly service. Some of London British Airways desk and gates officcers, gave me really poor service."
Cons: "My flight to London was pretty good,. Service was excellent.. But not my transfer to Madrid , I lost my conecttion. On London airport, I was sent back for the gate because I showed up early and they ask me to take care of the screen and wait for the gate #, when they showed the # , I went to the gate and was told my flight had left an hour ago and sent me back walking . I was wearing an orthopedic shoe, due to a toe fracture and i had to walk again all this long distance back to the terminal.!! British airway gave another flight and had to pay $279 dlls for a ticket to Madrid.2 hrs later. My flight was by Iberia and the service. was excelent. I wonder if the insurance , I bought initially will cover something of the $ 279 dlls ticket ? Fligth back to EUA was by AA and service was excellent"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "There are no air vents on these planes! 4 of the 4 international flights of 10+ hours each did not have individual air vents. The heat was unbearable. We were sweating the entire time. There are individual computers in each row taking up some of the seat B (middle seat) legroom. These blow hot air and heat up the plane even more. I have never been on a flight where there weren't vents and it is the #1 reason why I won't be flying British Airways again. The TV screens are also outdated. The selection is alright but the screens are blurry and have a grid burned in on them."
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Disappointed with the food choice"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Then they bumped us out of the seats we had reserved. Made it just in time for our connection. Then they bumped us from that flight. Others were given generous compensation for that bump. However we were given nothing. At least they us we could rest in the BA lounge because I am elderly and disabled and we would have a 9 hour wait. Got to the lounge and we were not listed in the system. So we were denied entrance. We will have have spent 2 nights on a plane and 36 hours instead of one night and 16 hours. Rotten way to depend your 50th anniversary."
Pros: "Just so comfortable and friendly. I'll fly them again next time!"
Pros: "the flight was very comfortable and we had a very pleasant flight. The food was very tasty, and all in all the flight was very high standard."
Cons: "there was some air hosts strike so service was slower than expected, but all in all the crew was able to attend everybody's needs. landing was a bit rougher than usual."
Cons: "Their own employees didn't know that the flight was delayed, though their app had sent out a notice, and they refused to let me go through security, having already given away my seat more than an hour before the flight actually left. Then they refused to admit responsibility and do anything to help except to continue to put us on standby on their own full flights, knowing we wouldn't be able to get on one of those flights for at least a few days. They did finally give us a hotel for just one night and that was only after we kept reminding them that this was all their fault."
Cons: "Old plane, flight attendants boardering in rude, very poor food (!), de-plane via steps to the tarmac and at least 7 coaches at Heathrow (an aged 747, so it took nearly an hour!)"
Pros: "Everyone was awesome"
Cons: "The staff was awesome"
Pros: "The food was elevated and we were fed twice on our 9 hour flight! The beverage service was also provided often with a good assortment. I loved that there were new release movies available for free. The staff was friendly and available. If I were to do another long flight like that, I would seek out British Airways."
Cons: "Food Accommodating bags when space is available"
Cons: "I WANT TO CAHNGE TIME OF FLIGHT. BRITISH ASKED TO HIGT PAYMENT. IN THIS AMOUNT I CAN BUY TWO TIKETS IN LOW COAST COMPANY AND I HAVE ENOUTH MONEY TO BUY FOOD. PERSON THAT BUY TIKET FROM THE SITE CAN'T CHOISE A SITE AND ITS COME AUTOMATIC WITHOUT TO CAHNGE/"
Pros: "For economy class it was good seats (bulkhead), the crew were nice, and the food was good."
Cons: "The tiny screens for movies were awful. Worst of all, the horribly loud voices that nearly break eardrums when the crew comes on during the flight was both painful and annoying."
Cons: "we order kosher food for the flights, on the first flight we recive only for 1 pessanger so on the way back we call few days before to the airlines company to confirm that is kosher food for both passengers and they confirm and again we didnt recive only 1 passanger recive for flight over 20 hours way to be with out food"
Pros: "British Airway's service is cordial and comfortable, which goes a long way to making the entire trip the same. Obviously they have no or little control over potholes in the air and wind turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to arrive 2 hours before our connecting BA flight departed Heathrow. Unfortunately because of loading delays on our original flight, we arrived in Heathrow 40 minutes late. The crew said that 60 minutes is the designated minimum but we used all of the 80 minutes plus, and it airport was NOT crowded. If BA is connecting to BA, then you have a responsibility ahead of time to address this problem and keep connecting passengers from getting overly distressed in a strange airport."
Pros: "The flight was not very full, so we could spread out. Normally I really like British Airways, but the lack of AC was difficult."
Cons: "The air conditioning did not work and it was very warm, 77 degrees at least, the whole flight. It made it very uncomfortable. They said something was broken."
Pros: "Good service! Nice seats !! Good flight over all!!!"
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding. Dinner tasty, but it is hard to cut a fillet steak without hitting the next passenger in the elbow"
Cons: "Only one check-in agent running all desks including bag drop - long wait. 19 year-old 747 had narrow seats in premium economy, uncomfortable and too much body contact with adjacent passengers. Outbound to SFO in an Airbus 380 had sparkling wine pre-take off, hot towels twice, this DEN-LHR flight only had juice or water on offer (crew said "don't serve that on this route") no hot towels, crew's objective seemed to be get around cabin in one go and leave Pax to it Breakfast was abysmal, soft-pretzel roll, no juice or water served, just indifferent coffee"
Pros: "Cheapest ticket for international flight with two connections. Crew is great and plane is comfortable"
Cons: "Even before trip started, there were two changes to schedule and not for the better. On actual trip - flight delayed and caused a missed connection. One suitcase got damaged and one went missing... Overall not the best experience this time :-("
Pros: "Usual fantastic standard of service"
Cons: "Shabby baggage reclaim service at LHR with staff ignoring priority baggage"
Pros: "Seat selection options, easy to use online services"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work at one of the seats on flight home. Flight was pushed off, causing it to land at 3:30 am."
Pros: "It all went smoothly and was on time"
Pros: "Back facing window seat, flat bed, great service, good food, arrival ahead of time"
Cons: "Food had little taste. Movies were not that current and selection was sparse"
Pros: "Cabin crew were terrific!"
Cons: "The unfortunate delay of our flight. And the entertainment systems seems to be getting old. What I mean is that it is by todays standard very very slow to switch between menus etc. And in some cases did not display all the menu content."
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "plane was too small and there was 1.5 hour delay departing"
Pros: "Not much. Crew was good but that is about it."
Cons: "Tight spaces packed in like sardines. FAA seriously needs to look at how these airlines pack us into these seats. Can barely sit in the set, no room to stretch legs, tray table hits my stomach, and I don't even have a big belly. When the guy in front reclines, cannot even get out of my seat. Chaotic boarding process without any order or instructions or announcements, poor food and entertainment."
Pros: "the concept"
Cons: "the reality"
Pros: "The full experience"
Pros: "Good boarding.Easy check in."
Cons: "Food! Not appealing. Did not eat more than a few bites."
Pros: "Very good plane, comfortable and new. Food is okay but they were short with all the options (the back of the plane had no option for dinner due to lack of meals)"
Cons: "The crew were nice but lazy. Whenever someone called them through the chair system they just ignore the call. After a few time I tried to call them I just went to their area to ask things."
Pros: "The flight crew were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "I was forced to miss my second flight because the first airplane malfunctioned"
Pros: "put us up in decent hotels gave food vouchers the crew didn't do anything to make it horrible Large selection of movies/tv on board comfiest seats out of all the major airlines I've flown"
Cons: "The flight kept getting delayed bc of mechanical problems, and then eventually cancelled. They rebooked everyone on new flights, but it took an extra stop in Toronto before getting us to Montreal. Once it was rebooked for the morning, it took off a little late. Plus the pretzels they gave us were stale. This was the first of two flights I took this trip that had mechanical issues, so they obviously need to fix their planes better or get new ones, because two Air Canada flights in one day that have mechanical problems leaves me worried that the planes aren't in optimal condition. It took me over 24 hours to get from Tucson, AZ to Montreal, Canada when normal travel takes less than 8 hours including layovers."
Pros: "I had an aisle seat"
Cons: "The plane sat on the runway in Denver for over an hour because they couldn't figure out their furling situation. Many people nearly missed connections because of this. The crew never let us get up to go to the bathroom on an international flight because of some small turbulence."
Pros: "Nothing! Unpleasant unhelpful crew at gate, no better onboard, absolutely moist cramped seating ever! Disorganized and late- boarding, departing, waited to disembark at arrival, 25 min before first bag off baggage......dreadful no one cares"
Cons: "Thank you for choosing Air Canada- smiles and goodbyes- where's all that Before you leave? They treat you like problem cattle to be dealt with, you're anonymous and valueless until you leave then they look at you and thank you?! Missing sincerity And service!"
Pros: "Onboard attendants were pleasant"
Cons: "No apology for lateness, flight boarded late, took off 40 min late, arrived 35 minutes late but we sat at gate waiting for someone to open it ?!, then another 15 min before bags started to unload Ridiculous but indicative of airlines You are not their valued guest or even their customer, you are a problem that needs to be solved and are consequently met with preloaded annoyance and a readiness to dismiss, placate at the best of times but definitely not please, impress, sympathize or satisfy. There is no evidence that it's even in their lexicon- not a part of their recruitment or selection process or training, ever! They're main focus and only positivity is saved for themselves. There may be a long line of concerned and anxious travelers but their priority is getting coffees for the battle ahead! They break their focused indifference only for each other and enthusiastically leave their post to satisfy each other's needs and attention. This has got to change! Why do we put up with such awful service for which we are the paying customer? Why are we, their customers, not valued? This airline makes record profits, provides less, charges for everything and increasingly delivers bad service, sometimes offensively bad! It doesn't cost more to hire a customer centric pleasant person, or incorporate guest experience into training or at the very least be friendly and smile! What if an airline just did that?! They'd differentiate themselves and develop a positive customer centered culture. Don't we deserve that, at the very least?!"
Pros: "Excellent fight.... comfortable and easy..."
Cons: "Crew where a bit slow... and the use of 4! Languages for announcement was annoying..."
Cons: "Crew wasn't helpful and attentive, boarding staff in Toronto were blatantly rude to me, I watched as my luggage got handled aggressively, the plane was dirty with old food crumbs and such, my flight to Windsor got cancelled and accomadations were not met sufficiently."
Pros: "Incredible plane!!"
Cons: "Bathrooms and seats need to be longer!"
Pros: "I love that I had a direct flight for my destination, from TLV to Pearson Int'l, at a decent price. This is usually hard to come by. The in flight entertainment options are very good. The online check-in process worked very well."
Cons: "The service on my original TLV-Pearson Flight (Dec 23rd am) was not great. The staff sat in the back gossiping the entire time and looked offended every time I came to ask a question or ask for something - they would get silent and just sit there, like I was interrupting an important conversation and so I even offered to get my own stuff. Ridiculous! What happened to customer service? The food is HORRIBLE! Worst food I have ever had on a flight, and I flew to 8 countries this last year, so that says a lot. I'd recommend only eating food you bring, or just starving yourself."
Pros: "The flight was perfect. Stress free. I will definitely get it again."
Pros: "The flight was good."
Cons: "I ordered a kosher meal, but they did not have it."
Cons: "Crew didn't come around much for most of flight, except for duty free - couldn't get water, or hot water for tea for a long time"
Cons: "Even though I reconfirmed my kosher food, it was not on the plane."
Pros: "Good food and entitemint"
Cons: "Customer service flight rebooking"
Cons: "The crew was fine but not overly friendly or helpful. They got the job done. I know that your coach seats are fairly standard in the industry. I just find the leg room to be too tight for a long distance flight."
Cons: "Leg room is HORRIBLE for a man 6 feet tall"
Cons: "No monitoring of travel route"
Pros: "An Air Canada rep over the phone"
Cons: "Gate agent, zero entertainment (and no warning that we should download an app inside airport), poor food, flight attendant wouldn't bring coffee to us (made us go to the back)"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Seats weren't comfortable even with an empty seat beside me. Vegetarian meal was not good at all. The general pancake option was gone before it even got to where I was sitting and the omelette was old school flights.. Which in this case was really bad."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was awful"
Cons: "I missed this flight due to my other flight being late."
Pros: "Upgrade to premium economy with more legroom. Free movies. Good movie selection. Free checked luggage!"
Cons: "Check-in process at Denver counter rather slow. Gate information at Denver very confusing due to changes and lateness in displaying/announcing information."
Cons: "Some crew members were not always kind."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment option."
Cons: "Wish there were more choices for new movies."
Pros: "Good service, very attentive. Breakfast needs improvement"
Cons: "The middle seat is horrible, no room to even bend over to reach my bag which was at my feet. Very uncomfortable and no room to put the elbows because the other two seats take the elbow rests . Make it a double one or something because I couldn't even fall asleep for a second plus I got a back ache throughout the"
Cons: "i booked a flight through kayak going from denver to milan. i showed up at the airport in denver to fly out yeserday only to find out that i was going to frankfurt germany. i am now in munich germany and never made it to milan. i was one of many people i met on the flight that also booked with air canada thinking they were headed to milan. air canada kept trying to put the blame off to my booking company. i don't know who to be ticked off at. please advise."
Pros: "Great crew. Nice airline."
Cons: "Both flights were over 30 minutes late. Otherwise they were just fine."
Cons: "I was seated in the middle of the plane right by the bathroom in the middle seat, the lady to the right had the same idea that these seats were very bad cause they don't have much space as the others also it's right next to the bathroom,, were you get to enjoy the noise from the bathroom door to flushing not include the smell,,, I wonder why you guy charge more for seats with space and you don't give discount for the worst seats in the plane,,, The lady complained and they changed here seat I had to stay there and not be able to sleep for more than 5 mints, from the reasons that I said before,,, by far the worst experience,"
Pros: "Did like the crew but didn't like the food at all.was really bad. It was cold very cold and the screen didn't work so I couldn't see the movies."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Coach is miserably small and the lights were dimmed far too late"
Pros: "Better plane than previous"
Cons: "Had to be rerouted to Calgary because I missed my connection"
Pros: "The Boeing airplane was either new or upgraded with plenty of in flight entertainment. In addition it was clean and fresh. The seats seemed to have more legroom than some I have flown. I could actually use my notebook on the tray stand. I was traveling on the same plane with my wife but we could only get separate seats. I decided to ask before boarding if they could put us together for such a long flight and they took my boarding pass and actually tried. The lady I checked in with was extremely gracious. She passed our info along to the head attendant on the flight who came and found us and told us she had found seats together. We had already done some seat switching with the kind people around us and managed to get together. The head attendant was happy for us."
Cons: "Long flight, when we got close to Tel Aviv, a guy attendant who wasn't on my side yelled at me from the other ailse and scolded me for not being locked in 30 minutes ahead of time and threatened to write me up. He was red faced. The head flight attendant made a call over the intercom, I jumped up and started stowing my computer and he comes by 30 seconds later and literally yelled across the plane. He must have had to clean a bathroom up that someone let loose in. I looked on the flight time register on the screen when I was locked in and we were 35 minutes out. Not quite a rule breaker was I."
Cons: "The flight attendants on this flight did NOT do their job. If they are there to ensure a safe environment for the people on board, they completely missed the boat. I was in row 45. Two families were on board with their 4 very young children. For the entire 8 hour flight, 3 of these children disrupted the entire section of the plane. They continuously played in the aisles, stood in the seats, kept their seat belts unbuckled, threw objects, and one blasted his iPad at maximum volume. When I asked one flight attendant to ask the family to get the child to lower the volume on his iPad (it was 4am; people were either using their ear buds, or had their screens turned off), they complied with the request for 30 minutes, then resumed at full throttle. I can honestly say, it was one of the worst flights I have ever experienced in 57 years."
Pros: "787 atmospherics good - humidity, etc Decent price for this flight"
Cons: "Economy Cabin one of the most uncomfortable. Attendants were angry, short and disgruntled the entire flight."
Pros: "The flight was one of the more uncomfortable flights I've taken across the Atlantic, and I fly multiple times per year. The flight attendents were nasty, sarcastic, and unkind. I heard them bickering between themselves throughout the flight, which was very uncomfortable to hear as a passenger. The kosher food was barely edible. The seats were small and uncomfortable. I am under 5'5" and on the small side, and I could barely fit in my seat. I will think twice before flying Air Canada again, and I will tell other people about my experience."
Pros: "Very nice crew - something I have learned to appreciate over the years."
Cons: "Chairs were small and I was uncomfortable. Food wasn't good."
Pros: "There was entertainment on board although it was very limited. All of the crew were very helpful and professional."
Pros: "Flight was underbooked so I took an option to change my seating for more space."
Cons: "I requested a vegetarian meal and was given the exact same mediocre meal for both lunch and breakfast."
Cons: "My suitcase did not arrive with me."
