Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Quick, clean, flight."
Cons: "Boarding delay due to mechanical problem. Line to board was more like a mass of people trying to squeeze through all at once and surprisingly disorganized. Somehow managed to board quickly, though."
Pros: "Best flight for a long time. great service and entertainment."
Cons: "I was unable to order vegetarian meal before the flight. This also a KAYAK / VAYAMA issue - you can not pass the info about special meal to the airline and Swiss seems to require that you order through them in order to specify such details. You should improve this."
Cons: "That it wasn’t a flight to denver"
Pros: "Everything was excellent from boarding with almost no delays to the service on board. We would definitely travel with swiss again"

Pros: "The planes are clean and relatively comfortable."
Cons: "Extremely rigid rules. My flight was the day of the blizzard in Boston, Tues, 3/13. Despite 5 calls to Swiss to reroute me out of Montreal, an airport I could actually get to, they would not relent. I finally just drove there and a really nice agent changed my flight since Logan was closed and all public transport was shut down. Even if my scheduled flight from boston wasn't canceled (I have no idea) they were incredibly unhelpful about the fact that I physically could not get to logan in time for my flight. (Mass DOT was asking everyone to stay off ALL roads). THEN on the way home, they would NOT let me fly back to Montreal where my car was!! WAY TOO RIGID RULES. Screw the customer!"

Cons: "The flight was scheduled for about 1pm and we arrived with another connecting flight to the Athens airport at 8am as that was our only choice. No staff arrived until 11am to check people in and take baggage. We were flying business and would have liked to check in earlier and make our way through security to the business lounge but could not and had to wait for three hours. It would have been nice to have one person on duty."
Pros: "The Israeli crew on El Al were very polite and tried to help."
Cons: "When we arrived to Swiss desk, after checking in at home including choosing seats, we were sent to El Al desk and had to start everything from the start. We couldn't even choose seats . It was a great disappointment. We don't think we fly in Swiss again"
Pros: "They served food! I have been on competitor flights that were twice as long and would have had to pay for every single beverage or food. In Swiss on a 50 minutes flight I got a complimentary chocolate, a crossaint and beverage service. Amazing. The crew also has been very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Landing in Zürich has been the bumpiest landing I have ever had. I believe that is due to the location and weather conditions but felt like the pilots also did not exactly react the way it should have been."
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: "Great flight crew and equipment. Courteous and helpful."

Pros: "Crew was as helpful as they could be. A man fell ill during the flight and was carried into first class be the crew. There were screaming little kids placed all over economy with parents that did nothing about their high pitched screaming and I do mean screaming and screeching as a form of communication. There was only one much younger child that was in real distress and the Mom and Dad walked up and down the aisles trying to comfort that child and not disturb others passengers. The rows of seats were so close together that when the person in front of me reclined, I could not. get up from my seat and it was on the aisle! The young man sitting next to me just stood on the seat to climb out. We could have made an earlier flight, but the manger of the reservation desk in Tel Aviv was too lazy to check to see if we could switch to the earlier flight was easily make able with lots of seats, but I couldn't do it on line and she was busy talking to her friends. As a result, we had a 6 hour lay over in Zurich that was unnecessary."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5 hrs and then completely canceled. They never gave us a reason as to why it as canceled and when they canceled it, they directed the entire group of the people on the plane to 4 different gates before getting a gate agent to tell us that we had to leave the gate and go back to the ticket counter and start over again. The security in Israel is very intense, so this was a big hassle. Then they only had 3-4 gate agents to rebook all 300+ people on the flight so we waited in like for 3 hours."
Pros: "I flew economy class both ways across the Atlantic in Feb and March, 2017. I took 6 Lufthansa flights. The crew is so professional and attentive. They don't skimp on drinks! The seats seem bigger...or maybe it is more leg room than some other airlines. I did not upgrade and was very comfortable."
Cons: "Well, the flight from Frankfurt to Tel Aviv both ways and there were only 2 bathrooms for a pretty big flight."
Pros: "Traveling in early February, the plane was relatively empty. Crew was very nice."

Cons: "The business class seats were identical to coach, with no leg room."
Pros: "I was rescheduled on another flight improperly"
Cons: "Flight did not take off staff was rude unhelpful I won't use them again"
Cons: "Checking in in Tel Aviv was the worst experience I have had in checking in. The ladies just sat there, explained almost nothing, gave no eye contact. Finally, they told me the flight was overbooked and that was why I was waiitng. They offered nothing else--as if I had done something wrong (the impression they gave me), rather than Lufthansa. I waited a full 1 1/2 hours. No other explanation. At the very end, when they finally put me on a flight, they chastised me for not checking in online---this was NEVER offered to me by Lufthansa on my flight there or on the return. With other airlines they always send me an email to check in online ahead of time. Lufthansa did not. I could not have been more disappointed with this checking in experience with Lufthansa. Again, the worst in my life and would be cause for me not to recommend Lufthansa to others. Otherwise, the flight itself and the actual crew were great. So disappointing to have such an unprofessional check in experience."
Pros: "Food was great!"
Cons: "Lackluster movie selection, internet was a rip off and barely worked."
Pros: "Everything about the service staff the plane amazing"
Pros: "Crew onboard was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "No legroom in coach. The person in front of me was sitting in my lap. They are the only airline that weighs your handbag, the luggage you take onboard. E en of it fits the size requirements they weigh it and make you confirm. They don't care if your checked luggage is underweight but your hand luggage is overweight and both add up to less than what you're allowed overall. Makes no sense and is such a useless hassle."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "No entertainment on board"
Cons: "seats are way too close to each other."
Cons: "It was late, we had connection to Berlin and we were in a hurry And forgot things on the plain. They didn't make arrangements to help us be on time for our connection. We had to run. My name is Dan Chevion. Can we get back the items we forgot on the plain?"

Cons: "Not enough leg room in Economy. God reason to fly other airline"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Process of checking in."
Cons: "Transfer process in Frankfurt. Arrived late, not Lufthansa's fault.Not very accommodating crew . Short transfer times should be discouraged when purchasing ticket."
Cons: "They advertise an app based entertainment system on this flight but it was not working on this flight."
Pros: "The frienliness of the crew, adecuate food, bathrooms in FRA-PHL leg."
Cons: "The frankfurt airport. Land on Gate A and had to walk 20 minutes to ger to gate Z (up and down escalators), the bathrooms in airplane from Ben Gurion to Frankfurt (very small and not enough head clearance at the toilet). The confort of seats on flight over 3 hours of sitting (I am 74 years old)."

Pros: "The service on board was good. The flight smooth."
Cons: "Good service and good food."
Pros: "The crew was happy and friendly to everyone. The food was delicious and was served with real utensils."

Pros: "As if our flight from Washington to Brussels was not delayed enough, the flight segment to Accra from Brussels was delayed for almost 2 hours"
Cons: "Almost everything about the trip was impacted one way or the other. Our luggage/bags were partially damaged too, but I decided not to lodge an official complaint."
Cons: "Seat and cabin temperature was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "We got zero offer of beverages during our flight, even a cup of water! Glad we bought our own. It seemed like one of the flight attendants was in a flight with a customer during boarding."
Cons: "When we arrived in Toronto they sent us to customs even though we didn’t need to go and we missed our connecting flight through Brussels them had to rebook with terrible seats to London now we are almost a day behind schedule..."
Pros: "Smooth and welcoming boarding New aircraft Good crew with free drinks"
Pros: "They have the funniest and engaging safety video I have ever seen"
Pros: "Crew was polite, but..."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed unused to the idea that Orthodox Jews won't sit beside people of the opposite sex. This made boarding take longer than it needed to. The airline should figure out a way to streamline this process on flights to/from Tel Aviv."
Cons: "You have to pay for any drink and snacks in flight"
Pros: "The safety instructions movie was entertaining the first time. The crew was friendly overall."
Cons: "Both my luggage items were lost on the way there and one on the way back. No free food or drink although the flight price is not that low."

Cons: "Lack of complimentary food - not even a snack as far as I can remember - for almost 5 hours flight. Really?"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was that I landed safely in Brussels."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour flight with seats that didn’t recline, head rests that didn’t move, no in-flight entertainment, no pillows or blankets, and unfriendly and somewhat rude, jaded flight attendants. The most uncomfortable international flight I’ve been on"
Pros: "The crew were very nice."
Cons: "It was a small plane with only 1 bathroom which was not available for the flight due to long lines. There was no food or even a drink of water without payment. there was no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "They dropped our connection. Took 3 hours to straighten it out"
Pros: "Long flights are never fun It helped that the crew was helpful and pleasant Food was ok but there could have been more offered It was an 8 hour flight and there was one meal an hour after take off and then just a very small snack and drink an hour before Not enough water was offered throughout the flight"
Cons: "The crew didn't bother to announce that we would have a delay at take off and at landing. The food?... nothing good to say. It's been years since I've eaten a meal on a passenger plane."
Cons: "The flight left 30 minutes after it was scheduled to leave. In addition, when we landed, they weren't prepared for us. We had to wait for the stairs and shuttle to arrive to get us to the airport terminal. It was especially frustrating because we had nearly no time to get to our connecting flight. The hosts and hostesses were mediocre at best."
Cons: "Flught was delayed more than 45 min from Brussels and when we finally arrived to Lisabon they couldn't open a door to Airport building."
Pros: "The team was nice, the flight took off on time and arrived a few minutes early"
Cons: "Even though I'm a star Alliance frequent traveler status holder, and the status grants an extra bag on economy class I was forced to pay for my first checked in bag. Furthermore, since I assumed I'll be getting my checked in luggage for free (as it states on the miles and more website) I didn't pay for it in advance a fee of 35$, meaning they made me pay 65$ in the airport."
Cons: "The flight was similar to a low-cost airline but I was not informed of this when booking. Uncomfortable seats with very little legroom, and food was only available by purchase. Not worth paying the cost of a regular flight for a 5 hour flight!"
Cons: "There was a very long wait checking in and boarding and there was no kosher food available on the flight."
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Pros: "The seats in the plane were amazing. Maybe older but better than the new ones."
Cons: "No infotainment screen"
Pros: "the cabin crew was wonderful. We were delayed by half hour on board they kept us informed and the service was excellent"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Economy plus seats are not worth the extra upgrade - compared to other airlines. Food was inedible. SLOP that you would give to prison inmates Boarding was horrendous and LONG. Entertainment was non existent. Crew was RUDE RUDE RUDE RUDE RUDE"
Pros: "Did not like airline so much."
Cons: "Staff did not allow access to lavatories when they were serving drinks and the long waits after were ridiculous"
Cons: "Departure delayed for unspecified reasons, most of the passengers like me had connecting flights and it was stressful"
Cons: "Agents could b more organized to help reroute everyone. Instructions were not provided to collect our bags."
Cons: "I have no words flew not honored and I had to buy a ticket at the airport. Thank you for your service!"
Pros: "Due to my husbands frequent flyer status, we were able to upgrade coach seats to premium free of charge - which afforded priority boarding and more comfortable seats - although, there was not much difference in legroom or general space. This flight was not full, so I had an empty seat next to me - always a good thing on a long flight. Lots of movies and entertainment available to fill up the hours. Served food and drinks constantly (3 meals plus, if I remember correctly) but the food was pretty bad. One of the bathrooms was a generous size, which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. They separated out groups but did not make clear where each group was to go, which caused unnecessary jam ups. Stewardess on this flight that served my section was rather grumpy and unhelpful. Seat in front of me was broken so it leaned way back into my lap, making it difficult to eat or read on my e-reader. I had a premium seat, but there did not seem to be any difference in leg room or the size of the seat than normal coach. Although there was several meals - the food was horrible. Best to take your own aboard. We were delayed getting off the ground, having to sit on the plane for a while before take off. We landed over an hour late."
Pros: "Very old planes No entertainment Very nice stewardess"
Pros: "Loved the entertainment options"
Cons: "Lost luggage, low food quality, long lines for transfers"
Pros: "I eventually got home"
Cons: "I didn't get to sleep as I had to spend hours booking a new flight."
Pros: "As far as flying goes the crew where very professional, pleasant and helpful. Honestly, I did not interact with them much but they seemed to all get along well and do their work happily and efficiently. They managed a large multi cultural flight well which is likely no easy job!"
Cons: "Seats: Why is that head rest attachment on the seat? It's AWFUL! It forces your neck in a very bad position. You have to be tall to use it properly. There should be a way to remove it for those of us too short to use it as it was meant to be used. The food on this flight was not the worst I have ever had but it certainly was not goo either. Two rice dishes...why? Boarding seemed to be slow and a bit unorganized. Why not board by seat zones?"
Pros: "the same"
Cons: "the same"
Cons: "I felt that the crew was unfriendly and saw each request as a burden."
Cons: "it was very confusing that kayak keep changing my flights (and the depature time of my first flight). i ended up needing to go out of custom to get my connection tickets at toronto and missing my flight."
Pros: "My Brussels-Chicago flight had been changed due to Brussels airport being closed. United and Brussels Airlines were outstanding in their allowing me to change to United Amsterdam -Chicago flight with no charges. Overall flight was very comfortable, and food was great in economy."
Cons: "The movie system worked only part of the time, but United will give us some compensation because of it. Boarding in Amsterdam was not systematic, and they didn't call out our group number. We took the bus out to the flight, so eventually it was fine."
Pros: "Good selection for enter"
Cons: "Received wrong food item at dinner and could not get replacement because they were out. Seating uncomfortable for such a long trip."
Pros: "very friendly crew. great landing in very windy condition"
Cons: "bad seat"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. There was no food offered, only water or orange. The flight was so short -- less than an hour, one wouldn't expect more so for food and entertainment there should have been a n/a column."
Cons: "Business class seats were like economy just no one in middle seat. not very comfortable. no entertainment system at all."
Pros: "Polite and helpful crew, Minimal turbulence."
Cons: "The toilet was very dirty from ouagadougou to abidjan as if it was not cleaned at the stop over in ouagadogou. Please keep it clean. Flying economy is not a crime to be punished by dirty toilet. The food was not good I arrived home very hungry. We were not given the blankets yet they were on board. I thought this was a given."
Cons: "in Brusels They ceep us inside the plane around 15-20 min after landing, the bridge wasn't working and we need to wait very long until they will find and bring normal stairs. Many people with conected flights probably missed their flights."
Cons: "No food, no drink, no newspapers"
Cons: "It seems like the crew was happy to fly with out the passengars....."
Pros: "Service, food , time,"
Cons: "Short time between connection"
Pros: "The crew was nice"

Cons: "The landing was very bad"

Pros: "easy boarding"
Cons: "baby behind us would not stop playing with the trays, was very irritating the entire flight. crew did nothing about it and all parent kept doing with apologizing. maybe make available locks for trays to help parents with babies to help control there fussiness or move them to front so no one is in front of them to experience banging on their seats."
Pros: "Deplaning on both sides of aircraft"
Cons: "Agent checked carry on size 2 times through the whole process"
Pros: "Very fast boarding, crew is efficient and plesent"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 1.5 hours. They said it was the weather, Thunder storms. On August? I doubt it."
Cons: "Didn't like cabin crew on the homeward journey ."
Pros: "I was offered to check in my hand luggage for no extra fee"
Cons: "apparently easyjet sends wrong check-in instrucions to all passengers and so we had to shuttle between terminals, face extremely long queues etc. check-in took from arrival to arriving at the duty free lounge 1.5 hrs(!)"
Pros: "very nice crew. relatively new aircraft. even so the chair doesn't recline it was very comfortable."
Cons: "very long delay (however it was weather related and the airline could do nothing about it )."
Cons: "The whole thing that it takes off from the old terminal was just awful, every step took twice the time and eventually came running to the plane only to discover that it's going to be late in take off 1 hour late! It ruined my plans! There was no compensation and the flight was not cheap! I had to pay 50€ for the suitcase and 9€for food while for the same price two weeks ago I had a flight way and back with a different company for the same price including food and a suitcase. Never flying with easyjet again"

Cons: "Cannot lean backward the seat, no complementary drinks at all, laggege cost too expensive"

Cons: "I would expect to get a very good sandwich for 6 euro , it was dry and not tasty at all."
Pros: "The boarding and the treatment our bags got was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Just like the emails I got suggested, I checked in online pretty early. The seats I got were the absolute worse located right in front of the toilet in the last row. Trying to get any comfort with no option to lower the back of our seat and bearing the noise of people using the potty - that was a bit too much. Needless to say our seats back home are even worse since they are on the parallel row in front of the door to the toilet. If all that isn't enough we wanted to drink some fine whiskey we brought with us from the duty free and the bottle was confiscated by the flight attendant, who claimed that I cannot drink any alcohol that wasn't bought from the plane. In the seat next to me, by the way, was a guy eating sushi he just got before boarding. That felt absurd and unjustified."
Cons: "Delay delay"
Pros: "I liked the hospitality ."
Cons: "The fly was delayed ."
Pros: "staff was friendly; the price was lower than major airlines"
Cons: "the seat was too small -no position is comfortable for more than 10 minutes. I wonder how people bigger than me could fit in and endure it (I am 55kg). Also, both my flights were delayed by about half an hour."
Pros: "Nice and professional crew, plane new and relatively silent."
Cons: "Small crowded plane. No food and service in original cost. High price."
Pros: "The departure was late for more than an hour. The plane is clean."
Pros: "What I liked best was the price I paid. What was so crazy is that everyone runs to try to get on the plane first to be able to have overhead luggage space, it's so weird to have so many passengers and so little space for there hand luggage. No option of type of food one wants. No entertainment."
Pros: "We paid $100 round trip each to Italy! There are no complains."
Cons: "The chairs don't recline sadly and those few degrees make a huge difference."
Cons: "The plain was full of dirt from the previous flight This is basic and need to be done even in low cost"
Cons: "Will never do through Kayak again as get stung with booking fee and extra on bag fee as was not able to book at time of booking only when checking in."
Pros: "Friendly check in agent"
Cons: "For the check in agent to advise passengers that E gates are extremely far for a regional flight & to make our way directly there. I was traveling with my mother, we arrived 2 and half hours before our flight and plus did online check in but the walk to the gate took us about 40 mins that we missed"
Cons: "They asked me to store my suitcase in an overhead bin at the front of the plane as they had run out of space so I complied. When it was time to disembark, someone had stolen my suitcase. I have not located it since and the customer service from Vueling is horrendous - they keep running me around to different departments and sending automated responses, refusing to answer my questions."
Pros: "Boarding and check I. Went very smoothly and efficiently."
Cons: "The seat were very close together, and it was very difficult to hear what the captain was saying."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Pros: "There was an issue with my seat at boarding so they put me in the special seats instead."
Cons: "Plane buzzed quite a lot on the way up."
Cons: "We had to wait for someone... Couldn't leave with out them. Departed an hour late."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Could not check luggage online so had to pay exhorbitant fee at airport. Boarding at gate was totally disorganized and the attendents didn’t seem to care"
Pros: "I am still alive"
Cons: "They charged for coffee. My legs are too long to fit without my knees going into the isle. They didn't have room for my bag."
Pros: "Quick boarding with the baby, very helpful friendly staff"
Cons: "4 hours delayed :("
Pros: "Crew was nice, responsive and professional. They tried to make the best of a bad situation and were helpful in that regard. Pilot explained the reason for the delay. Also helpful"
Cons: "Arrived early at the airport and checked my bags. Was charged $190 for one extra bag. Told I had to pay for two flights because there was a connection! Boarding was late and then the plane took off late. Horrible."
Pros: "Randomly given exit row seating."
Cons: "First at the airport they tell us we have to check our carry ons when we had already flown three flights with them with those same bags as carry ons, then they criticize us for having heavy bags, which they never would have known if we had been allowed to carry them on. Their back up reason for needing to check bags was the flight was overbooked and there would be no room for bags, both of which were false as I personally counted at least 15 seats open and there were at least 6-7 completely empty overhead bins. Finally, it is Kayak that notifies me that my flight is delayed 90 minutes, but yet the airline decides it is a good idea to have us board and then just sit on the plane before finally telling us after 30 minutes of sitting on the plane with the flight door still open that we are delayed another hour. I would not fly them again."
Cons: "Late. Long wait for baggage. Not very friendly crew."
Cons: "Was late, without any notification"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by about five hours. Had to do a mad dash to city airport from Luton just to stand a chance of making my meeting. I will never be using Vueling again."

Cons: "Delayed departure, delayed boarding"
Pros: "cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "ground staff was so trained to brush problems to the customers that never again Vueling, so bad experience compared to Ryanair..."
Pros: "Quick and cheap flight from Rome to Pairs for sightseeing"
Cons: "Boarding was moved at the time of boarding and sounds like that is normal so pay attention"
Cons: "Our hand luggage had to go into the hull so we had a long wait at the other end. Cabin crew explained 220 people and space for 180 bags, wouldn’t mind as much but I follow the rules and only bring one bag when people in front of me have 2 bags! Too ch down was very bumpy!"
Cons: "No food, no entertainment,no place for legs,late boarding"
Pros: "New plane, comfortable seat and helpful crew"
Cons: "Disembarking in Barcelona very disorganised"
Pros: "Nothing. Was too uncomfortable."
Cons: "I couldn't fit my legs in the space between seats, so much so that I had pins and needles in my feet by the time we landed. The food is really expensive. Never flying with this airline again."
Cons: "Boarding was messed up. Paying for priority boarding then having the gate open the boarding area to all passengers created some heated words, plus people pushing ahead for boarding."
Cons: "It was late and no one told us anything... until we were close to landing that's when the pilot told us why they were late one hour at the gate! unacceptable!"
Cons: "It was so uncomfortably cramped on the back row that my knees were numb by the end of the flight. I am tall but not ridiculously so. I think there should be minimum standards for legroom that exceed what was available on this flight."
Cons: "Seats were so small we could hardly fit. Airplane was extremely hot inside. No leg room at all for 5he middle seat and window seat passengers."
Cons: "Sits are not comfortable"
Pros: "Flight not shown delayed at airport. Eventually left an hour late. No information or apology at boarding gate. Staff went and hid so the desk was empty. No apology or explanation on board either. Flight got us from A to Be but with zero grace or service. As a first experience this was bad."
Cons: "Zero service"
Cons: "Delay of 35-40 minutes again, as always."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late. Incredibly messy boarding procedure. Then they kept everyone in the plane for more than one hour with no air conditioning. Crew had to open the aircraft doors to let some air into the cabin."
Cons: "Very narrow seats, in fact the most narrow I've ever been on. Plane was delayed both ways. No real explanation as to why."
Cons: "No leg room! Especially in row 9 because seats moved forward to make rooom for row 10. Not Fair!!!!"
Cons: "Apparently Vueling, Iberia's cheap cousin, saves a middle seat in row 1 and charges more. A lot more! I was pressured in Helsinki into letting Swissair, the contracted boarding agent it seems, fill that seat, 1/2 of which is what you get for paying 'business' in a plane that has all economy seating. There was no logic or ability to board before economy and indeed my boarding pass stated economy. The woman that was added to the oversold seat got intoxicated and was half in my seat. I will never fly this again and it's not worth the stress to fight for some refund but I was taken advantage of with charging me a 300+ euro seat for this joke of a flight in a "better" level of service."
Pros: "On time, no charge for checked bag, easy & pleasant."
Pros: "Ample bag space"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "Crew and personnel were very friendly. On time and bags arrived as promised."
Cons: "Nothing is on the house - even coffee on the flight is 3 euros. Seats are very very close together - virtually no leg room"
Cons: "Paid $180 one way trip on a cheap airline. I expected to fly with British Airways. That is what was sold to me. Like the airline pulled a fast one on me. I do not like this at all and extremely upset."
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Had to change seats"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked, and the alternative was to fly to barcelina and transit flight to rome. At the end i reached rome 13 hours after the original time table. Vouling service in tel aviv and barcelina was not empathic at all."
Pros: "Things went pretty smoothly, but nothing exceptional about it. Good to get to point A to point B."
Cons: "It wasn't very clear via British Airways' booking process that I needed to go to the Vueling counter or the British Airways counter to drop off my luggage."
Cons: "Booked online for British Airways. Wasn't clear that it was operated by Vueling a budget airline. I payed extra for British Airways specifically to avoid the budget carriers. Vueling charged for everything (nickel and dimed) as expected, line through ticketing was extremely long, and of course there wasn't any entertainment for the flight. I wish kayak would have been very clear that it was not a British Airways flight. Paid extra for nothing."
Cons: "Long check in line/cue and then we had to go to another line to pay for our bags"
Pros: "Everything but the delay"
Cons: "The big delay"
Pros: "the crew are nice, they gave me their personal phones to contact my family when we had 4 hours delay in the plane and I had no wifi to connect with them."
Cons: "we had 4 hours delay in the plane in our way back from Amsterdam to London. 4 hours delay for various reasons."

Cons: "Did not honor confirmed reservations to Sicily. made us wait 2 hours on standby. Delayed our luggage six days. Promising to deliver each day. Lied to us about everything. We were on a vacation and traveling from city. No clothes. We will never fly with Vueling again. Beware of Vueling."
