Pros: "By far the worst experience I've ever had in my life. 1. A day after I perches a multi destination tickets I called Swiss air costumer service requesting to upgrade my tickets to business class. no one would even try to help me. They just kept saying I need to contact my travel agent. After 3 phone calls I gave up and decided to wait and upgrade my ticket at the airport. 2. In Prague the night before my second flight I hurt my knee real bad to a point that I couldn't walk at all. The next morning I call Swiss air costumer service again trying to explain them my situation telling them I can't fly and won't be able to make it to my flight. Costumer service cancelled immediately all of my remaining tickets and try to sell me new tickets for a full price. I said I don't mind buy and pay for the one flight I missed but there is no reason for her to re sell me the rest of my tickets that I already paid for, again. Then she start to change prices up and down like in a Chinese flea market. At that point I begged her to talk to a supervisor but she Kept ignoring my request and just try to negotiat for a lower charg she kept me on the phone for 5 hours. My hotel phone bill for that one call cost me 150€. I never got to talk to a supervisor but she took down the charge to 517$ Not included a new ticket flying out of Prague. 3. For my last flight going home. I showed up 2.5 hours Earlier. asking to upgrade my sit to business fin desk send me to talk to asupervisor. The supervisor was trying to process my request but didn't seem to know what he was doing at all. One minute he was on his computer then the next minute on the phone with Swiss air headquarter then back on his computer for more then 35 minutes with no resolute. I still had an hour and half before take off when he told me he can print me the ticket but it's to late now since the gate for my flight is close and I already missed my flight. I said that's impossible cause I still have an hour and half to my flight but he insist on the gate been close and there is no way I can get on that flight. Right away I run back to front desk asking them to print my ticket as fast as possible cause I would really like to get on that flight. In front desk they told me not to worry cause I got plenty of time to get on that flight. So I gave up on the business upgrade and told them that at that point I'll be just as happy to sit by the window. Of course they put me on the very end exactly in the middle. After the door was locked I looked around and saw plenty of free sits available including by the window. 4. In Zurich I finally managed to upgrade my last flight coming back to Tampa fl to business and noticed that the only way they could do that was by contacting Swiss air headquarter for approval. When I asked why is that since I fly a lot and never seen anything like that before one of the lady's there told how Swiss air left all of their front desk powerless and all decisions must be made by headquarters."
Cons: "When we finally arrived in Tampa. It hook them an hour and a half to get are bags out. I honestly doubt I'll ever fly Swiss airlines again. Ever. Absolutely the worst experience I've ever had flying. Ps the crew on the plain ware a lot nicer and more professional the people on the ground."

Pros: "Service and punctuality were spot on. No in-flight entertainment for our short flight from Timisoara to Bucharest, so bring a book or e-book. A good sandwich was provided, though. Just found a fare with Tarom and Air France that is half the cost of the other airlines. I would definitely take advantage of this if I were headed overseas again."

Pros: "Very efficient."

They claim it was too big, even though it did fit into the box they use to measure the luggage, saying that it fitted too tight, and insisted on my paying an extra 50 euro. 2. They purposely split family members in the hope that people will pay extra to sit together. We did it on the first leg, but then managed to switch seats without extra cost in the second leg. It just required several people switching around."
Pros: "best food and drinks best clubs"
Pros: "Low price"
Cons: "delay of 1:30."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "Flying shop"
Pros: "The crew traveling out of Rome was pleasant is the only thing positive I can say."
Cons: "-we paid extra for priority boarding and did go through the line first to board the shuttle to the plane but then they had everyone else from the overbooked plane crowded like sardines into the same shuttle. It was a waste of money. -traveling to Rome on Ryanair we took samsonite carry on luggage onto the plane with no problems. Leaving Rome we were told to recheck our luggage size. The wheels stick out a little and they made us pay 100 Euros to check our bags. Once on the plane we saw many passengers with luggage and bags much larger than our own and did not have to pay to have them checked. We were the only Americans on the plane. -The seats do not recline and are at a 90 degree angle which is very uncomfortable for a 3 hour flight. -the crew traveling to Rome was very rude. -the seats were dirty with food and crumbs before I sat down and there was trash and food on the floor. It is as if the plane is not cleaned routinely."
Pros: "Ryanair was a great surprise. I am 1.79 in height the seats were not cramped, yes they do"
Pros: "Fast accurate on time and proffesional"
Cons: "Late , expensive, loud, no leg room seat do not tilt !"

Cons: "no water to drink"
Cons: "There was a 50 minute delay and they kept us outside in the rain and wind fir half an hour"
Pros: "The ticket was cheap and to an airport that had easy access to public transportation."
Cons: "I found out later that I had to print out my ticket or face a 50 euro fee and they do not give free water on the flight."
Cons: "Very slow to board, had to walk across tarmac, thin plastic seats that don't recline"
Cons: "My American friend and myself were flying Rome to Palermo. The boarding line was chaotic without any sense of order. The attendant had my friend and I make sure our baggage fit into their container, along with others. An Italian man who's bag was clearly wider, was let through free of charge. They asked my friend if she was Italian and when she responded in English they said she needed to pay the 55 Euro fee. The only other people who paid besides my friend and I was a family of four from England even though it was clear that other larger bags were let in. Save your frustrations and pay extra for a more professional flight!"
Pros: "Timely departure/arrival Seats and space"
Cons: "Boarding Bag to be delivered to crew while boarding. Sometimes one plans to travel with just hand baggage to meet connection flights. This should be respected!"
Pros: "Efficient, timely boarding,smooth flight."
Cons: "Nickel and dime you to death with charges. You pay extra for EVERYTHING! Also barely did any directions in English. Since it was an Irish airline I thought they would speak English on board and at gates much like Lufthansa does German. Thus no understanding of how to even purchase food or beverage on flight. Not many options to Sicily tho so you are at their mercy."
Cons: "No information from either Kayak or Ryan that I needed to finds a way to print my own boarding pass or face a $50 fee. Absurd!"
Pros: "Was not able to fill out this survey on my IPAD, but I would have given it a great rating."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time; seats were bigger than expected for basic economy though not equal to "extra" level on longer flights."
Cons: "Constant sell-sell-sell announcements, pushing everything from food/beverages (nothing complimentary) to raffle tickets. We were required to surrender a bag at boarding because cabin baggage was overbooked, but most people took theirs on anyway. While we followed the rules, we paid the penalty of having to wait for the bag to be retrieved. It cost nothing but time, fortunately. But the bag surrender before the flight was not convenient or easy to monitor. Also agree with the other reviewer that online checkin is required to avoid a fee. And the requirement for non-EU persons to have a PRINTED boarding pass was a pain. Luckily, our hotel agreed to do this for us, but many travelers don't have the option."
Cons: "We were surprised and disappointed that we had to pay 150 euros because we hadn't had boarding passes. We didn't know this. 150 seems like an awful lot, also the girl behind the desk telling us was very rude......"
Pros: "We got to Palermo so I am thankful for the pilots."
Cons: "1. We were not allowed to take our carry- on luggage on because it was said to be too bit; however other people in our section carried on bags of the same size. 2. We were put on a bus but then kept in it for at least ten minutes before we were taken to the plane. 3. The seats were uncomfortable. E plane left 18 minutes late because the boarding was handled so poorly."
