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."

When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."

Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"

Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."
Pros: "The included snacks and the seats."
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."

Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "The staff and crew"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."

Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"
"Could not hear announcements from staff. Luggage in hold was delayed on both legs of trip."
Cons: "Short and sweet"
Cons: "Seat recline was broken- wouldn’t hold position."
Cons: "The conditions were very cramped. The entertainment system was quite old and had very little selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working all together. I called for assistance from my seat a couple of times, but nobody came."
Pros: "Crew attentive. The delay was due to airport conditions in FCO, cannot be blamed on Air France."
Cons: "Food. For a 2-hour plus flight, from 11am to 1:30pm, we got 20gr pretzel sticks. This is ridiculous. Don't pretend you are not low-cost! Formerly, before the Joon failed (thank God) venture, Air France had real sandwiches around that time of the day on that line."
Cons: "the tray was broken and the water felt all over. the flight was 1 hr delayed. All of us stood the 1 hr waiting to know what's next. We could sit."

Pros: "Flight attendant was rude to my non French speaking 12 year old. He ripped his charger out of the USB port and threw it at him."

Pros: "Amazing crews!"
Pros: "Left on time. No turbulence."

Cons: "Why is boarding so prolonged? 1-Small children and elders cannot stand for 20/30 minutes 2-Why are various sections (particularly Economy), no longer boarded by rows. and from rear first...so people don’t clog aisles, step over others, injure or be injured by heavy overhead moves?"
Pros: "We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals. The gate staff and flight crew identified him and allowed us special bordering that facilitated the process. That act of kindness is a rare experience on our part. Thank you Air France staff!"
Cons: "It is very difficult to get around CDG airport with a disabled person. There is no shuttle. By the time we got to check in, we were ten minutes late. They would not check us in, and we paid over $700 to change tickets to the next flight. When I complained, I was told to stop being rude or I would get no ticket at all. My mother is 94 years old and we did the best we could given the circumstance."

Cons: "Dirty aircraft, I expect more when I pay a lot"
Cons: "Too crowded"
Cons: "Meal choice missing kosher non-gluten combination."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, but the sliding action, instead of recline, took getting used to. Food was very good. Snacks available on demand, along with drinks. Complimentary wine with meal was also quite good. Entertainment system was first rate with plenty of options for TV. movies, music, games, etc..."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle two seats in the center of the 777 left me stuck for most of the flight. Got up only once. Wife's feet and ankles were swollen by the end of the flight. Not enough legroom to move much during the flight and not enough aisle space to get around with the plane so full. Have made flights twice as long on the 747 and were able to get up and walk."
Pros: "Best flight I've ever flown. Blankets and pillows provided with many options for movies."
Cons: "It was all good, only in comparison with Turkish airlines and etihad it is not at par."

Pros: "Friendly crew; comfort; punctuation. Fast boarding"
Cons: "Simple food - very small amounts. No entertainment."
Pros: "Croissants instead of pretzels was a nice change of snack"
Cons: "Computer failure rendered the check in process a total mess. Staff seemed utterly at a loss and also totally unprepared for this very early and very full flight. Most passengers seemed to have multiple bags to check. Since this is a regular flight it was hard to understand why check in staff wandered in late when time was already tight - let alone having a system failure as well to deal with. We were 50 minutes late leaving. This resulted in many of us either missing or having extremely tight (stressful) connections at CDG Paris."
Cons: "Disorganised boarding with people allowed to bring on multiple and oversize bags that by the airlines own admission delayed departure"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, the flight was on schedule, crew was nice."

Cons: "All is good"
Cons: "I couldn't change seats on line I did prepay the baggage, printed the receipt, when I started checking in, they won,t honor their own reciept, they could not find my prepayment, the call center was no helpful, I had to pay again. The checking in agent placed myself and my wife far from each other, and the plane was half-empty"
Pros: "Modern, efficient, friendly, and economical (good price)"
Cons: "Very confusing regarding cost of checked bag, traveling with pet. Some airlines give option to select this ala carte on website and this seems most efficient way to make money for airline and make easy for customer. Please try this."
Cons: "Cabin crew rude and unprofessional, they charged me for my baggage , the one I already paid for... total waste of time talking to anyone to get help from anybody from staff , and I believe most of the good reviews it’s a lie we all know how it can be done"
Pros: "Food The flight took less time than promised."

Pros: "Good service, organized, really good food, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Bad baggage policy. No entertainment."
Cons: "S7 didn't send any conformation or information about my flight. I missed one of them in order of that."
Cons: "Our son missed the outbound flight from Berlin, Germany, to St. Petersburg, Russia. The airline does not have any representation in Germany except in Frankfurt. He could not get hold of them by phone from Berlin, so we had to call from the United States. It turned out that we could not call S7 directly at all - instead we had to call Vyama. They told us that by missing the outbound flight, he also missed the inbound flight. Therefore, we had to buy a new ticket and pay whole price again for the flight two days later. This is not the practice that is used by other companies - which offer at least some credit."
Cons: "Задержали рейс более чем на 2 часа. Посадка была плохая."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, and the flight attendants were hardworking and attentive."
Cons: "The meals smelled so bad when the trolley went past that I actually thought it was a problem with the toilets. A roll, a slice of brown bread, no butter, a packet of ketchup, and a yellow jelly/jello with tiny pieces of canned pineapple suspended. The main course featured rice that somehow managed to be dry and overcooked at the same time, and a flavorless chicken patty. Our flight was nearly four hours late taking off, because the incoming flight required a replacement aircraft. We were promised a complimentary drink that never appeared. No entertainment on a four-hour flight, which is standard."

Pros: "decent leg room good food"

Cons: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "good crew, food was ok"
Cons: "no customer service, horrible rules, not organized at the gate and at check in. Will never fly s7 again."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive. They made me feel welcome."
Cons: "They waited on the other 3 people before me in Business class so the beef option was not available when it was my turn to be asked. I chose the fish and it was very very dry. The potatoes were dry too. The cake tasted old. I was disappointed with the food on this flight."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Delayed departure."
Pros: "Great-looking, efficient and pleasant stewardesses."
Cons: "Everything went well, thank you!"
Pros: "Budget airline, decent experience"
Cons: "Fare did not include a single piece of baggage on international flight! Misleading pricing"
Pros: "For such a short flight ... They give you food (simple bread sandwiches) and the crew is friendly. Seating is fine if you're not too large, and if there's room on board, you can reseat yourselves if you do get separated from your fiance (separate bookings) From the boarding agents to the gate attendants, friendly folks. Passengers aren't rush (and friendly as well). No complaints, good flight, on time and no issues!"
Cons: "Boarding can be a bit chaotic."
Pros: "It got me to where I was going"
Cons: "A 3 hour flight was a 25 hour process, bouncing from one place to the next. Nobody knew what they were doing."
Cons: "The food was so terrible. The craft in the bad condition"
Cons: "Check in took 1,5 hours, while the S7 who was operating the flight representative was just walking around and disturbing the airport employees which made check in slower. There was no space for the hand luggage inside the plane. Seems that it is too small for such flights. The crew was not nice at all. This is the worst flight experience I have ever had in my life. Flew with S7 around 10 years ago, when they were called Siberia Airways - nothing changed since then."
Pros: "Punctuality and Arriving safely"
Cons: "Minimal leg room"
Pros: "Best food ever."
Pros: "For flying economy, I thought the seat space was good - far better than their compatriot, Ural Airlines. The plane was clean, the flight was without incident."
Cons: "Nothing really: but I expect what I got flying economy. Wish they had an economy+. This is kind of a long flight not to have any form of entertainment; and maybe the plane should be larger. 6.5 hours."
Cons: "the food was truly dreadful"
Pros: "Very modern Airbus airplane. Smooth boarding process that is simple for any non Russian to understand. Flight attendants speak enough English to get by. Great ticket price with as good experience as Airoflot. Like all Russian and Eoropean airlines, they serve food on a domestic or medium haul flight (3 hours)"
Cons: "Robotic, generally unfriendly flight attendants."
Pros: "SATA fly from Horta to Lisbon which is extremely convenient"
Cons: "The plane arrived late apparently because of waiting for low cloud/fog to clear but it was a modern Airbus 320 and the weather was not that bad. We were 45 mins late. Announcements were minimal. They have 2 other local flights leaving at the same time and waited for them to taxi and take off before boarding. The other flights were inter-island with no need for onward connections. The Lisbon flight had many passengers intending to take onward flights so in my mind this one should have had priority. It was poor all round"
Pros: "Very friendly"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Perfect service."
Cons: "Better reading material"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. Baggage arrive safely. But the repeated commercial interruptions trying to sell things made me wonder if it was commission based - a nap was not possible from the announcements but you could buy things duty free. I am glad it was a short flight. A new plane."
Cons: "There are no queues. A free for all to load and unload the plane. If you are looking for Swiss order, look elsewhere. Nothing is free, not water (1.5 euro) or any other beverages or anything else. We paid double what the flight should cost to not even be offered water. The seats were lightly padded to maximize seats. There was a small amount of leg room but some. No power outlets, wifi or media. The worst aspect is I bought a flight on Baltic Air from Tallinn to Riga and had the price from Riga to Paris on the next tab on kayak. I bought the ticket from Tallin to Riga then flipped to buy Riga to Paris only to learn it was a bait price. The price was actually $200 more. Baltic would not refund the first flight (within minutes) so we were stuck to either walk away from our 2 tickets to Riga or pay the bait and switch rate. We begrudgingly paid 400 (200 each) euro MORE than the initial price shown so we could fly out of Riga back to Paris (to be back in Paris by Jan 7). A non alcoholic beverage, a small snack, and power access would be helpful. Ground crew helping with order would be helpful. I was shoved and run over trying to get onto and off the plane. It is the wild west of flying except the plane is new...oh, and it is 30 euro if you do not check in online ahead. But you will still need to stand in line to check a bag (where they can issue you a boarding pass)."
Pros: "Clean and neat aircraft with nice crew"
Cons: "Find a way to serve at lease water. Some crew members were uptight. Need to be friendly"
Cons: "Flight attendant didn’t smile @ all, it was like we are on her way."
Pros: "Nice stuff."
Cons: "Probably teleportation?"
Pros: "The crew, plane and airport was great!"
Cons: "Part of our luggage was disassembled and not delivered to the final destination."
Cons: "Sēdvieta neērta un nepiemērota gulēšanai."
Cons: "At least a complimentary glass of water or juice in Economy."
Pros: "Big space to front seat"
Cons: "offer drinking water"
Cons: "Not mentioned that in Munich I had to change terminal and pass again on security check. If I would have bought some bottles in Vilnius or Riga duty free, I would have had problems"
Pros: "Very nice plane and we left on time and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "no food or water in economy - for a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "They just wanted more money. Charged us one small carry-on bag over 60 Euro! Ridiculous. Horrible airline, will never fly with airBaltic."
Cons: "They should have told us that one person can only bring one bag. we just flew with Ryanair and Easyjet, which allow one carryne and one bag. Again, will never fly with such horrible airBaltic, never!!!"
Cons: "Baggage was broken and two items inside also broken. Was overcharged for baggage."
Pros: "All fine"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours"
Pros: "Crew were efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Coffee creamer sachets are insufficient in quantity for the coffee. Even with two sachets the coffee was still nearly black. The flight was full and the cost of checked in luggage ensured everyone used their carry on allowance. As a consequence, overhead bins were full. I left one bag at the front of the plane and had another at my feet. However, it was a short flight, so not too unbearable."
Cons: "When I got to the check-in desk, I was told to get out of line and check in online. It wasn't a big deal, but it would have been good to know that it was necessary to do this so I didn't wait in line for a long time."
Cons: "There was a sceen right before my eyes telling me how much time of the flight was left. Even if I wanted to be unaware of the information I could not because as I mensioned it was right before my eyes. I was aware of almost every minute of this flight....found it hard to let go and just let time pass"
Pros: "most of the crew were polite and helpful"
Cons: "super small plane... had to climb a very narrow staircase into the plane... overhead bins couldn't accommodate much of anything... we weren't warned this in advance. one rude steward (Miks) July 21 Flt. BT444, 18:30-19:50... he just stood there watching me struggle up the outside staircase into the plane with my suitcase... scolded me for bringing suitcase on board, argued with me, etc. (I've traveled the world and this suitcase is always brought on board)... he was not service-oriented or helpful. thankfully, other staff did help... but he left a bad taste in my mouth for this airline."
Pros: "staff were polite, helpful, and efficient"
Cons: "super small plane... had to climb a very narrow staircase into the plane... overhead bins couldn't accommodate much of anything... we weren't warned this in advance"
Cons: "Abigail in MLA (Luqa Intl Malta), one of the sassiest and unhelpful agents I have met. Ask for payment for baggage, does something with my credit card- then tells me I need to go to another desk to pay. So inefficient. This on top of her and her gate buddy screwing around at the desk throwing things at each other. Professionalism is not here. To top it off, the plane sat on the tarmac for 40 minutes and we just about missed our connection. Dirty plane too, gum stains on carpet and dirty seats. Will not fly with these clowns again."
Pros: "Newer plane for this stretch."
Pros: "Nice new plane, on time."
Cons: "I pre-paid two checked bags (one each for my husband and myself). At check in we were told I had not done this and we had to go pay at another desk in the airport and come back to the check in line, 40 euros each. I showed the agent my paperwork that showed one bag each--it was not explicit on the paper whether this was the allowance or what I had paid--and she shrugged and said "Bad information. You have to pay now and you can take it up with the airline later." This will be a pain in the neck."
Cons: "The passage through Riga airport was terrifying. We arrived from St. Petersburg 6.35 and we left 7.20 to Paris (passengers in transit). We explained at the checkpoint that we had a few minutes, but they controlled us several times until we had to throw several liquid items. In St. Petersburg they had already controlled us, without problems. In short: a sad experience in Riga, which does not speak well of this country: Latvia."
Pros: "Good service, good connection in Riga! Perfectly on time!"
Pros: "They waited for transit passengers Were helpful"
Pros: "The plane was very clean and new. The crew who worked this flight were most friendly, professional and quite articulate in three languages including the captain. I highly recommend them."
Pros: "Flight was short and sweet, no problems to report."
Cons: "on the website i ordered and payed for a meal, and automatically it went to the last and the shortest leg of the flight. it did not ask which leg i was interested in. so i phoned their customer service to get this fixed, they said they cannot fix it and closed the phone on me. on the website is said that from israel you cannot do advance internet checkin, and when i arrived at the checkin they said that i should have done this advanced check in, and since i didn't i need to go to their ticket office and pay a penalty of 35$ per passenger. there also was no warning on the website of any such penalty. i will never fly with them again if i can help it."
Cons: "An extra fee is charged if you don't check-in online."
Cons: "I needed to cancel the flight a month before, and I got no refund"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, so I did not make to the my connection flight with different carrier. I had to reschedule the flight and stay in the hotel overnight. AirBaltic refused to compensate for my looses due to thair fault, castomer service is very poor, they took refusal position right away. Air Baltic planes are very old and no air conditioning, avoid air Baltic."
Cons: "I was flying transit, but I had to go through the check-in in Paris. At the check-in they started to make problems about my carry-on luggage. I had just two flights from the United States behind me and no problems at all and suddenly I can't fly with my carry-on luggage? I didn't like the AirBaltic check-in service."
Pros: "Enough said"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, and I missed my connecting flight. Next flight was 8 hours later. They did put me on this flight but didn't give any assistance to help me with another connecting flight because it was a different company. Voucher for a cup of coffee didn't cover all the troubles I had to go through."
Pros: "They did provide a 6 euro food voucher once it was clear the flight was going to be over 2 hours late. The flight and land crew did their best to keep everyone calm under bad circumstances."
Cons: "Flight was just under 3 hours late (long enough to kill most of the day, but just under what is needed to pay compensation). First they said it was problems in Amsterdam, then problems with the plane, then traffic in Amsterdam. It was hard to tell what was true and what was avoiding penalties (it is possible that equipment issues caused them to lose their spot, and get caught in traffic delays). I hate that they charge 2.5 euros for water on the flight. Their carryon rules only allow us to take the smallest of bags (smaller than other airlines) but when I got on the plane, lots of people had medium sized carryons."
Pros: "I was surprised by the professionalism of air Baltic employees. They dressed well."
Pros: "Quick boarding once the plane finally arrived. Planes are new."
Cons: "Flight was delayed approximately 45 minutes as a result of late arrival of aircraft - surprising since it was a morning flight.. I am 6ft2, leg room is VERY tight. I slept most of the flight so cannot speak to food or entertainment. Watch out for the fees! 5 euro per leg for a seat assignment 60 euro to check bags."
Pros: "Moved up to First class section."
Cons: "No refreshments"
Pros: "Friendly crew, tons of meal options, good price."
Cons: "Checked in luggage is only 20kg, there's no entertainment in flight."
Pros: "Modern aircraft. Quick flight. Quick delivery of baggage at terminal. Relieved that baggage from BKK-KBP-RIX was not lost nor delayed."
Cons: "It was cold and I was not dressed for the bus to the aircraft, but instead for the tropics where I had been. The toilet was not centered for stand - up use for men. Thus had to kneel in order to use. This booked by UIA, but the carrier was Air Baltic, which led to some confusion as to which airline to go to for boarding."
Pros: "Fine, left on time, short flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Booked on kayak and wasn't clear at all about check in or tickets, I looked many times. No way of checking in or getting boarding passes had to pay an arm and a leg at the gate. Also had to pay to check my bag on a half full flight. Have never had to check same bag with Ryanair on over 10 flights now. Will never use this airline again."
Cons: "I tried to check in on my phone and the app did not allow me. The only way was buying lunch in order to move on with the check in process. I decided to get to the counter and the person charged me US$ 35 euros only for checking me in (even though their app had problems to check in). They charged me in total US$ 100 for checking in and checking my luggage. The service was terrible, especially from the person at the counter. In addition to all that, my luggage did not arrive to the final destination and was lost for an entire week. Every time I called the airline, they were charging me per minute even though they were the ones who lost my suitcase."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Mediocre crew Pricing policy makes you feel like a fool. Ex : if you book not directly from their website, you won't receive a email asking to check online and will end up paying a 30e fee at the counter."
Cons: "After barely making too tight a connection, all food and beverage needed Euros or European credit card. My Visa wouldn't work. Finally after I broke down (blood sugar way too high) the stewardess gave me a glass of water. Never will I use the money grubbing airline again"
