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. They removed the batteries of my scooter and we had to carry them on our lap. I had to tell them to put the batteries back in the scooter. They failed in every facet."

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: "very professional crew, clean cabin, interesting choice of documentaries"
Cons: "it would have been nice to see a hostess walk through with water every hour, of so why is there no world news in your tv selection?"
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: "The boarding process was messy, couldn't tell economy from business lines, no entertainment at all."
Cons: "When I booked the flight I thought it was El Al so I did not order kosher food (as all El Al food is kosher). I only found out later that it was Swiss Air and I was unable to get a kosher meal."
Pros: "Was all great as with other legs...will fly again"
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"
Cons: "In this flight nothing , one of the worst I have ever had ."

Cons: "Food wasn't so good, I ordered a Vegan meal and got the Vegetarian one"
Pros: "EVERYTHING'S Good to come back home"
Pros: "The flights were Just as schedule, the arrival time was even earlier than planned. The crew is always available and tries to make the flight as comfortable as it can be. The food is brilliant in comparison to other airlines. To sum up, always a good choice. * this is my 8th flight with Swiss."
One flight has delayed, but connecting flight ( the same company) has another plan for us. And left TO TLL. Instead Finnair.Who waiting pax from BRUSSELS. GREAT EXAMPLE OF COOPERATION. 👍
Great leg room and very clean plane nothing could be better 😁
Pros: "Smooth flight. Perfect service."
Pros: "Not much to say here. It was a short flight, and it went smoothly."
Cons: "I’ll say the same thing about almost every flight I have, and this is mostly for the airlines. People might fly more and pay a bit more if you give us more room. Being crammed into a tiny seat with a bunch of strangers is never pleasant. Same in this flight. Nothing terrible, just the usual. Also, to the other passengers, sit down until it’s your turn to exit. What is wrong with you that you can’t sit five more minutes? Be polite and let the people in front of you go first, let them have room to grab their bags instead of having your elbows in their face."
Cons: "The flight was late by half an hour and I had to pay 60€ because my cabin bag was 2kg heavier than allowed."
Pros: "Clean airplane nice pretty stewardess in short dress."
Cons: "Probably private jet whit hot tub."
Pros: "The crew, plane and procedure was all great."
Cons: "Part of out luggage was disassembled during transit and part was missing afterwards... part of the luggage was missing."
Cons: "One Toilet for a full plane with 150 passengers...."
Cons: "No information was avSo pick a couple up listen to this device again also right now dictation right now"
Cons: "Flying with the same company from Vilnius, only on Riga they decided to weight the cabin bags. I understand the police, the limit weight, but they should apply it from the first flight, not just half way"
Pros: "Very nice plane and we left on time and the flight was very smooth."
Pros: "Food offered on flight even though short trip"
Cons: "Was delayed so being on time"
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!!!"
Pros: "Small compliment from Air France was lovely and unexpected"
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: "Short, convenient, direct, value for money."
Cons: "Not comfortable, small plane."
Pros: "the flight started at time. the attendant were fine. but i consider this flight not as a cheap flight. therefore, it should be possible, so early in the morning to offer a coffee at least."
Cons: "the experience on board should be improved, particularly when the flight is not different from regular airlines in terms of cost"
Pros: "Newer plane for this stretch."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "They charged me 35 dollars to check in and the reason I did not check in was because their other flight was running late and was not sure I will make to that flight. It took forever to get bags in Riga. In the empty flight the way they were seating people was crazy. I'm lifetime gold with American Airlines so I do fair share flying and can tell you it's not a good Airline."
Pros: "Newer plane."
Cons: "The plane we were supposed to be on from Riga to Helisinki had mechanical problems so they switched our plane. We had an hour delay do to that. Then when we got to Helsinki our luggage never made it."
Pros: "Pleasant crew, efficient boarding, flight was on time"
Cons: "No in-flight service"
Pros: "They waited for transit passengers Were helpful"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Please give out water for free"
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: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing. All was good"
Cons: "We were told upon check in that there was a charge to check in. I have never heard of such rubbish in 43 years of air travel. We were told we could check in online but we only had 4 minute in which to do it. We were charged €150 for 5 people. The check in Sgent was sour faced as well. Once aboard the plane (a nice new aircraft) we found the stewardesses sour faced as well. Overall not impressed by air Baltic!"
Cons: "They overbooked the flight and without any apologies on their behalf or without even informing me, they stop me and my fiance at the gate and just told is that we can not go to the flight I book and prepay 4 month at advance! The only solution that they can offer me was to travel from Riga to Moscow and than to Tel Aviv. It become 12 hours traveling across 4 countries ( we arrived form Stockholm) instead of 5 hours flight as it was supposed to! I'm not recommending to travel with that company it can not be trusted!"
Cons: "bag measure frames in Riga airport used for aB are smaller than in most airports, as a results we were asked to check some bags in at the last moment. we have had connecting flight through Riga with two hand bags. lets call them big and small. judge by yourself: flight, aircraft, small, big ->Riga CS3, on board, on board Riga-> DHC 8-400, on board, check in ->Riga DHC 8-400, on board, on board Riga-> CS3, check in, check in as you see, the same bags on the same aircraft were allowed or disallowed by the same company based on weather one flies to Riga or from it. i believe there is absolutely no purpose for doing last second interruptions of such kind"
Pros: "We arrived safely. Bilingual staff."
Cons: "The seats are worn and creek with every movement. There is very limited leg room even for someone who is short. When the person in front of you leans back it is impossible to reach your hand baggage or do anything but lay back in your seat. The landing was safe but not at all comfortable."
Pros: "Professional appearance"
Cons: "Extra $ for the seat (quite absurd) and 40 Euros for a check in luggage."
Pros: "Boarding went well and crew was nice."
Cons: "The air conditioning was not working properly on the 3 hour flight which made it a bit sweaty and unfortable. The purchase of a cold beer was a must."
Pros: "Everything was very smooth and the crew was very attentive."
Pros: "Brand new aircraft Wider seats as normal Good selection of food"
Cons: "We got disembarked from the aircraft for technical reasons, then they towed the same aircraft to the next gate and off we were. Delay almost two hours."
Pros: "Quick bag drop and security line at Riga airport. Quick boarding with all the larger suitcases forcibly checked in at no charge. On time departure. Seats are comfortable enough for a short flight."
Cons: "(This is more of a comment on Kayak's review page than on the flight.) Haven't tried the food and there was no entertainment."
Cons: "No fee food or beverages at all. Attendants were very pleasant. Since this is an economy airline there reallly is no complaint. Our flight was full and boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "Who charges for coffee, jeez"
Pros: "I was surprised by the professionalism of air Baltic employees. They dressed well."
Pros: "It was very easy to print boarding pass."
Cons: "The scanners did not accept my boarding pass. 40% of the passengers had to have boarding passes reprinted. It was chaotic."
Pros: "Flight was on time which was surprising given a late snow storm in Tallinn."
Cons: "The flight was fully booked, and the system re-assigned seats for a number of passengers. This created confusion as passengers arrived to their assigned seats to find other passengers in the seats. There also appeared to be a miscommunication between the crew as some crew members said to passengers whose seats were taken they should sit anywhere, whereas other crew members tried to get everyone back in their assigned seats. This was frustrating. Also the overhead bin lockers are very difficult to open"
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."
Cons: "For people who have Airbaltic as a connecting flight this might be very inconvenient. We paid 40 Eur/person each way for our luggage . That brings the price that you pay so much higher than you expect at first. Also if you don't print boarding pass ahead of time which we didn't (plus still needed to drop off checked luggage and check our passports) they want to charge you 30 Eur a person to print that drinking piece of paper. If you don't want to pay that get out of the line with all of you luggage, go to kiosk and print it, then come back to the line. But that's companies rules , employees just have to follow it. Another problem was their attitude. The guy who got our luggage was so weird. Showing off and talking to us like a boss. After giving us boarding passes he said we can go to the screen and look up the gate ourselves. I never write long reviews but man! they got me mad that day. Never say never - but I don't want to fly with this airline again"
Pros: "Things moved along fairly well, especially once I was in Riga. The hour layover stressed me out because I wasn't sure if I'd make it to my connection in time, but the airport was not crowded so I managed to get through passport control fairly quickly and made my flight."
Cons: "Flight left a late, which was stressful with an hour layover in Riga where I had to go through passport control. Was very stressed, but made it with ten minutes to spare before my connection boarded because the airport happened to be not crowded."
Pros: "The flights were on time, and the Riga airport was efficient."
Cons: "The planes seemed very old and rickety. One was an old propeller plane that looked like it had a large patch. The second plane was so old that It was very difficult to open the overhead storage compartments. Both planes rocked side to side during takeoff and landing. I couldn't figure out how to check baggage online through Kayak, and it cost €40 at the airport. It got me where I needs to go, but with the baggage fees, it turned out to be about the same price as other airlines, and I wouldn't recommend the planes for people with any flying anxiety."
Cons: "Boarding tool a lot of time. We departed late"
Cons: "Riga to vilnius delayed 2 hours"
I had a middle seat with a snoring man on either side of me for most of the almost 5-hour flight. You didn't have a not available/applicable option for entertainment. I didn't purchase any of the food or beverages, but I would have appreciated free water if it had been available.
Great service and adequate food on inter continental flight, but inter-Europe flights they charge for EVERYTHING including water!!
Business class was regular seat with nobody sitting next to you. Wouldn’t book business for such a flight. No entertainment.
Pros: "The crew reacted good to the change of plane"
Cons: "Needed to replace plane because of technical problem, that should have detected earlier. The business seats are standard seats. No water through the flights. Very bad experience"
Pros: "The crew wasn’t very friendly and there’s very little legroom."
Cons: "The Florence Airport has difficulty with baggage. Had to wait for over an hour."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Entertainment system stopped working part way through"
Cons: "Boarding at Brussels was awful. After arriving from another international city and having to go through security, I was informed , just before boarding that I had to go to a location 20 gates away and wait in a long line for another security sticker. It was very confusing."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "No AC, we roasted. Seats uncomfortably small. Terrible on boarding and off boarding process."
Cons: "Boarding was awful"
Pros: "Good movies."
Cons: "I called United to make sure there was a children’s meal for my 3 year old. There was not."
Cons: "vegetarian dish was very poor. main dish was ok but quite small, the light dish (breakfast?) was just a piece of bread, might as well not serve anything. Entertainment was very poor, limited selection of movies and very silly tv shows."
Cons: "It was very cold inside the airplane. I have to ask multiple times for blanket."
Pros: "Good schedules, good prices."
Cons: "They think that a five-hour flight is "intra-European" so they assign tiny little planes with bad seats and cramped rows. Unacceptable."
Cons: "25 min late too much announcements during night flight, especially about duty free items and prices..."
Pros: "On our longer flight, we were thrilled- nice crew, delicious food, spacious, great pilot, and enjoyable entertainment experience. However, on our shorter flight from Brussels to telaviv, not only was the crew completely inattentive, but they were intentive to some very disturbing things including children who were pulling the hair of other customers and jumping up-and-down in the aisles of the airplane. There was no available entertainment whatsoever. In addition the food was extremely expensive and not particularly tasty. The plane was uncomfortable and smelled atrocious. These 2 vastly different experiences almost made me feel like I was taking 2 different airlines. Please keep consistency."
Cons: "I didn't like the inconsistency of the 2 different planes that I was on. If you are going to have entertainment you should have some form of it on all of your airplanes. The idea that food that you need to buy is so expensive is absurd. I was really blown away by how badly the plane smelled. It was almost as if I was in a bathroom. And on top of that I really felt very unsafe with children jumping up-and-down kicking people pulling their hair etc. While it isn't the job of the flight attendants to be parents, they certainly need to be aware of safety concerns for the rest of the passengers."
Pros: "Nice crew, old equipment"
Cons: "All food for purchase. Not even complimentary nuts. All drinks are for purchase. Including water!!! 4 hours flight not a glass of water unless you pay 3 euro. No entertainment. No USB or electric outlets. Thanks for not charging for use of bathroom."
Pros: "I liked the organization and service"
Pros: "Ease of boarding, reasonably comfortable seats on a short flight."
Cons: "No liquids (soda, coffee, water) offered."
Cons: "The service and constant mistakes on rebooking a cancelled flight that ended in more than 6 hours delays and luggage lost"
Pros: "Crew. Entertainment. Food. Leg room was a bit longer than usual."
Cons: "Lack of complimentary food - not even a snack as far as I can remember - for almost 5 hours flight. Really?"
Cons: "No service - not even a glass of water!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, no refreshments. Everyone on the flight was suprised to find that food and drink cost money. The entire flight, the crew was selling something and you could not pass in aisle or even use toilet for half the fight. No entertainmrnt on a flight of 4.5 hrs and this was not supposed to be a low cost flight."
Cons: "Late departure in Brussels with confusing and inaccurate information. The food was tasteless, my kids and I hardly ate anything because of it. The in-flight entertainment options were pretty limited. Once again, the flight crew was not very friendly or service minded."
Pros: "I enjoyed everything but"
Cons: "....the morning snack and audio of the movies. Also, wifi should be available (even if it's an additional cost)"
Cons: "after a long flight from the states, no water in the connection flight. all security checks all over again. very crowded. air brussels you need to be improved."
Cons: "Delayed and JFK wasn't ready for us. So more delay"
Pros: "Boarding was fast, we arrived early."
Cons: "The plane was super hot, the crew never offered drinks or food to me"
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."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "The flight to Brussels was canceled and we had to spend the whole night at the airport until someone started to give us some attention On the way back they put me and my friends very far from each other and we had to pay even for water on the flight"
Pros: "Very hardworking crew, always offering extra food, snacks, water, patient with smiles and great attitude Very good food in economy, I was surprised"
Pros: "Leg room and food on board was pretty good. The flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The competence and effectiveness of the boarding crew was deplorable. Everyone looked and acted like it was their first day on the job. If I have a choice, I don't think I will ever fly this airline again. Brussels airport is also a confusing mess. You just wait in line after line with no clear direction. They left one of my bags behind in Brussels as well, and I have yet to receive an update on where it is."
Cons: "Everything is fine"
Cons: "Completely chaotic service."
Pros: "On time Polite crew"
Pros: "Always great to fly on a 5 across Avro."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I paid for a ticket that includes a hot meal, but a day before the flight they changed their policy so I didn't get any meal. They even asked for money for a cup of water, and this is my red line. The seats recline and comfort is poor."
Pros: "Small plain. No interlaken. Cold food"
Cons: "Very noisy crew Not enough space for hand bugs."
Cons: "bad customer service. No reliable information about the flight. How someone who never took an airplane can know that you have to get a visa when going to canada. If your ticket says your last destination is us. And i did not even got a full refund for their stupid mistake. Lack of information. You guys should be more careless for your customers."
Pros: "leg space is quite big"
Cons: "the food was poor - Cold Pasta salad"
Cons: "Rows are very close together. We were packed in like sardines. Stewardesses prevent people from going to the toilets in the back when they are serving, and do not allow access to the toilet in the front. Not "user-friendly"."
Pros: "Nothing. Wanted it to be over already"
Cons: "Thw flight attendents gave a really bad service. They forgot to bring me food. The plain was really small and crowded... There was a lot of noise."
Pros: "On time and services were good. Cost less than if booked through United significantly."
Cons: "Terrible food, very small and crowded aircraft."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Still don't know where my luggage was so this is an issue for me on all legs of flight"
Cons: "Had to change a tire on the plane - they checked us through at the gate but didn't allow us on the plane - which makes sense. However, they should have NOT checked us through at the gate. Dozens stood for over a half hour waiting to move forward. They wouldn't let us back into the gate area to sit. Poor planning"
Pros: "People were very nice. Food wasn't bad. We had a nice dinner and a breakfast when we arrived in Florence. Nothing gourmet but definitely decent food."
Pros: "Great you provide ways to keep busy on the plane for long flights!"
Cons: "Something needs to be done about carry on baggage. On this flight alone, I counted 80+ people who had to pay for carry on luggage because it also included our backpacks. There were a lot of angry people. Paying $85 for my carry on that alone didn’t weigh 10kg was ridiculous. I’ll be looking into other airlines for my future trips."
Pros: "Amazing crew, access to lounge, brand new Dreamliner!"
Cons: "Food and entertainment are somewhat bland and the choice is limited."
Pros: "This flight was also delayed. Our bags never made the connection and waited 2 hours at the baggage terminalwith no support or answers."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The Dreamliner was clean and very nice. Seats were good. Food was good. Entertainment was excellent. they gave blankets,but not pillows (but I did not ask for one.)"
Cons: "The boarding process could be better organized. There is just one large line and it’s like a free for all. There are zones on the tickets but they didn’t board by the zones"
Pros: "Reasonably a lot of room for economy class. I was very comfortable on a long-haul flight."
Cons: "The boarding process in Norway is a bit of a mess, but not the fault of the airline. We had a delay arriving at the airport and they could have done a bit better communicating what was going on."
Pros: "I slept"
Cons: "They just opened the gates and ran away and let people board. It was CHAOS"
Pros: "This was one of the most comfortable and enjoyable international flights I have been on in years."
Cons: "The boarding lineup in Oslo is a bit jumbled but if that’s all I have to complain about it was a great experience."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Dozens of passengers, myself included, were forced to check their carry-ons at the gate and pay for it due to Norwegians strict weight policy. To be honest this felt like I was being swindled and it ruined the rest of the experience for me. Do not be tempted by the low fares they offer."
Pros: "Crew friendly and attentive. Seats in Premium really good."
Cons: "They made everyone vacant the gate area and stand for at least 45 minutes prior to boarding. Flight was rescheduled to leave 1 hour and 05 minutes later than advertised then was approximately 25 minutes later than that leaving. This was my first time flying with this airline and l will have second t"
Pros: "Everyone was nice and the flight was smooth and restrooms were clean."
Cons: "I meant to write my Paris to Oslo review on the Oslo to LA review for what could be better. Like I mentioned the food was not good, please get rid of that white noodle coconut soup in a cup, there’s no way anyone likes it and more episodes on some of the shows like Friends"
Cons: "20 hours of flying and there was a very limited selection of movies to watch, but all passengers are required to watch a very bright video of one of your planes flying through the sky for the last 20 minutes of the flight. Please include some snacks and water during international flights."
Cons: "After having no issues with my carryon on my first Norwegian flight of the day, I was forced to pay 650 NoK to check my carryon as we were boarding my flight from Oslo to New York. This was just ridiculous because my bag fit in the overhead bins just fine and there we’re many empty overhead bins"
Cons: "To be honest, at least a glass of water could be offered"
Pros: "Everything was great and handled professionally and efficiently, not to mention with such good hospitality and accommodations."
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Premium cabin is good value, much more space than economy for not outrageous cost, food is actually really tasty, though still served in a box with plastic utensils in Premium, Dreamliner is nice plane"
Cons: "Nearly an hour late departing because of “passenger security screening for flights to US” - as if they don’t do this every day? They needed to start getting people into gate area much earlier. Limited video content - all sorts of programs I’ve never heard of or didn’t want to watch."
Pros: "planes are brand new and for the price (under $500.00) from Stockholm to NY it's a steal - but...…."
Cons: "same point !We booked a trip from Stockholm to NY. Got to the airport and the baggage fee was quite high, but i was ok paying it since i didn't prepay online- my mistake. BUT then i was told since the plane was stopping at Oslo we had to pay ANOTHER SET OF LUGGAGE FEES !!!! I said, no you must be mistaken, there is no way you can charge me for two trips just because your plane is making a stop! They insisted and rather than fight and get thrown out of the airport i am disputing with my credit card company, but it can't possibly be legal. $690.00 fees !"
Cons: "The flight kept getting further delayed but remained th same after the flight took off, then when it was due to land at lax and we were there waiting it updates to an additional 45 minute delay. You couldn’t have updated that before the arrival time? Poor customer service!"
Cons: "They lost our bags in the transfer and did not even offer water on the flight!"
Cons: "I was in seat 33F. My husband & I were sitting together, boarded together, yet we were sent down different isles of the plane to board even though we asked to go the same direction. This made us arrive at our seats at different times & made stowing our luggage above rushed, awkward and harder to do. Not a good start considering we are both in our mid 60's. This may have been due to the crew being overwhelmed due to circumstances caused by the airport making us all late in boarding the plane all at once. Also, it was a late flight & there was constant noise from the galley making it hard to try to get any sleep. We were very happy that the crew got along so well but some of the conversations could have been at lower decibles."
Pros: "Food was actually provided with our ticket... not just ONE meal, but also a snack for before the arrival and the meals tasted good! Also, Oslo is a new and beautiful airport with great options for meals and stores to wander around. Also, the airplane had huge windows to look out of with new dimmer technology as opposed to just a shade. Very cool! With a couple of small downsides, we would STILL definitely fly Norwegian."
Cons: "We gate checked a stroller but were unable to pick it up to use in Oslo which was a surprise as it went straight through from gate check to full check in through the layover... with a 3hr 45min layover, it could have been useful to have it for our infant to sleep. Leg room is tight. Small selection of new movies for entertainment when compared to other airlines and it would have been nice to know we could get complimentary drinks anytime during the flight, but they were only available for free during meal service unless you purchased additionally."
Pros: "The selection of movies in the on-board entertainment was nice, but available wi-fi on a long-haul trip would have been better."
Cons: "Condescending check-in clerk in Oslo and subjective application of carry-on rules ruined the trip and assured that I will look to other airlines for future international travel."
Pros: "I loved the service of the crew and the entertainment provided on the flight. Being all new aircrafts the flights have all been very comfortable."
Cons: "It took way too long to board, seemed unorganized with lines forming everywhere and no formal instruction. We landed 30min early but had to wait while taxiing to gate for almost an hour. Took almost another hour to get bags released onto baggage claim. Was an incredible inconvenience as I missed my connecting flight because of the delays"
Cons: "Paid for an isle seat but assigned a window. No organization at boarding. Lots of signs for bag restrictions but not heeded or adhered to by passengers or staff. Ridiculous!!!"
Cons: "I bought the ticket at the last minute and couldn't pre-pay for luggage or food. The food cost me and my companion $50 for sandwiches, snacks and drinks. Even water and soda is $3 for a small can. If you want a blanket, they charge, if you want anything, they charge. Luggage was over $80. Just pay more for a different airline, it will be less"
Cons: "There was no option to choose a meal when booking through you. We weren't aware that we would have to do this somehow so we went the 10 hour flight without food. They were sold out of anything decent on the SNACK BAR menu."
Pros: "I can't tell you what I liked because I never made the flight due to my first flight being delayed by a full day."
Cons: "Everything because I never made the flight because of a delayed and cancelled first flight."
Pros: "Good plane, nice crew"
Cons: "Plane was over an hour late. We did not get an explanation for the delay until five minutes before we took off. Airport was not set up to handle the number of fights and large number of passengers. There is only one restaurant with really expensive food and drinks."
Pros: "Clean planes, free wifi,"
Cons: "Departure delayed nearly an hour, for a flight that is only one hour long. No compensation for delay (such as a free snack). Disorganized boarding - might be better to organize by seat-row numbers"
Pros: "The plane and plane ride."
Cons: "I understand there is construction but your NY terminal is dirty, uncomfortable, no modern conveniences nor decent restaurants. And boarding was a cluster duck."
Pros: "Decent leg room, comfortable cabin pressure. Very efficient boarding procedures."
Cons: "While certain individual crew members were friendly, the lot as a whole seemed to have some internal conflicts with communication and organization. Additionally, the frequency of announcements was disruptive. They could be more efficient with timing and delivery of information shared with passengers. The proximity of the bathrooms was convenient but they need better deodorizers in there -- it was a little stinky during the 2nd half of the trip."
Pros: "Its very cheap! But its a typical no-frills airline that doesn't give you food, extra leg room, etc."
Cons: "There was nothing overtly negative about this flight - you just don't get the nice "extra" things that you'd get if you paid more for your flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed around 2 hours. We were all stuffed in a small waiting room, then kicked out to have everyone go through a security check again with no explanation. The entertainment and food on the plane was not great at all. Probably wouldn't fly with Norwegian again unless I was on a serious budget."
Pros: "Self check-in and boarding procedures Seat spacing"
Cons: "Mobile App could be better Amenities"
Cons: "Didn't make it. Had to stay in hotel fly to London wait 4 hours then fly to Los angeles"
Pros: "The new plane, clean, on time"
Cons: "I asked for a refill of a glass of wine and it was denied. I found that very stingy. The flight from Oslo to Fort Lauderdale was packed with kids and the flight attendants had no control over them, running around, disturbing everybody and they just wouldn't stop. Very annoying."
Pros: "Checking bags is free!"
Cons: "There was very little communication about gate changes- the gate changed two times while we were at the airport"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and easy."
Cons: "The longest wait I have ever seen to get passport reviewed. I am sure people missed their flight. There was no sense of urgency, no information, once I got to the gate the sign said Gate Closed. Luckily they were still boarding but bette, no any communication would have been better."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Flight attendants did not offer water even once. When asked them to bring some told me to get it myself. Sits were super uncomfortable, had to pay for blankets, no snacks were offered. Flight was late by more than an hour both ways. Had to pay for 1 bag and the weight limit is much lower than in other airlines. Also airport is one of the most inconvenient ones. To transfer you have to pick up and drop off your bags. Along with the customs and passport control you would have to wait in 6 lines to transfer within airport. Staff is not helful and is indifferent. Direction signs are small and hard to find."
Cons: "I asked for a glass of water between drink services and was initially refused by the crew. Apparently Norwegian has a policy of requiring passengers to pay for water. Appalling."
Pros: "Loved the modern amenities - movie selection and being able to order snacks and drinks from the screens. Orders were delivered quickly."
Cons: "It was SO cold for the entire flight. Boarding process was very confusing with the buses. No restroom in gate area."
Pros: "Obviously this flight was shorter and smaller and I didn't isn't even expect much. However once again Norwegian exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was amazing the entire time."
Cons: "The food choices, I ordered a hot snack but they only had ham and cheese. I don't eat pork also I'm diabetic. Not one sugar free item on the list. Why not have a grilled cheese option. I was refunded then offered a veggie sandwich, I paid again for that. Then they found a cold turkey Sandwich. So I was refunded again and paid for the turkey sandwich in thee end. I was starving the entire flight."
Pros: "The flight crew was stellar: extremely helpful and they made the flight a treat. I couldn't have asked for a better flying experience."
Cons: "I think Oslo is unable to efficiently manage the volume of passengers it has to process. During our 5 hour layover, seating all around Terminal E was at a premium. Access to Terminal F thru the long Passport line was EXTREMELY slow. The gate was crowded and we had to sit on the floor with many others. Then, they cleared the whole area for a security scan and we all re-queued up again. Once boarding began it wasn't much better, with a long wait in the access tunnel. I liked Norwegian Air, but will try to avoid Oslo in the future."
Cons: "2hours delay with no explanation. Crew not nice, couldn't get a glass of water after waiting for over 2 hours at check in and running to the plane. No movies, music, or anything. No space, not enough toilets."
Pros: "787s are great planes!"
Cons: "Surprised the wear and tear of the seats overall, given how 'young' the fleet of Norwegian is!"
Pros: "Very nice flight crew. USB in every seat."
Cons: "It is impossible to check into the flight online. Unless you have flown this airline before, there is no way to know that they do not serve food or drinks even on transatlantic flights. Baggage allowance differs from flight to flight, and you can't find out how many bags you're allowed to check in until you're at the airport. I also had no idea that the weight limit was 20 kilos (23 on all other airlines). At the airport, there were two people checking in a crowd from two US flights, so it took forever to check in. Waiting for two hours on the plane for take-off was highly unpleasant as well."
Pros: "East boarding. Quick trip!"
Could not check on on line for 1 out of 3 passengers
Eveything as expected, professional and on schedule
I was not boarded because i was positive on my pcr test
The one thing I must say is that the flight wasn't full at all, and in this case, I'm really unsure why they wouldn't sit people farther from each other.
Pros: "The offert of 5 euro discount on Duty Free products when you buy some food over 6 euros."
Pros: "It was enough fast"
Cons: "Too much money for nothing service."
Pros: "The food options were amazing and the wine was very nice!"
Pros: "Nothing. Horrible experience overall, but what you pay is what you get."
Cons: "Pretty much everything..."
Pros: "It's the cheapest you can get"
Cons: "They split me and my wife on porpuse to force me to buy the option to choose my seating. The leg space is tiny and the chairs won't recline so it's super uncomfortable. Flight times are shitty. Te leave early in the morning so you can barely get some sleep at night. Nor on the plane. They don't any serve food or even water and let you dry up. You can buy overpriced food and beverage onboard. My purchase from the duty free was stolen and they didn't help me handle the problem. Awful experience."
Pros: "Hats off for the pilots! They did a great job to land the plane during the night on a very-very thick fog. Actually, we were the first plane to land safely in CLJ airport in three consecutive days apart all the other diverted landings to other airports."
Cons: "6 hours delay due to bad weather."
Pros: "I was at the gate. Before the door to enter the airplane. The Hungarian crew wasn’t telling me that they are closing the gate or going to close it. They completely ignore me and let me stand there and at the end I see the door close in front of me, 2 meter from me and they told me I mised flight."
Cons: "I lost my money and I had to buy new flight with other company. Wizzair crew at budapest was very rude and didn’t take responsibility for the mistake they did. They could just say they are closing the door but nobody did. 2 meters from me and after I passed all security they ignored me completely."
Pros: "The cheap fares"
Cons: "Airplane was filthy, needed a thorough cleaning. More padding on the seat."
Pros: "I think some of the issues were passenger related, and passengers not listening to the crew. So it wasn't so much I liked it but some of the crew's attitudes were warranted based on the passengers."
Cons: "We were loaded onto the bus to take us to the plane and then stood on the bus for 45 minutes! Then were delayed even longer. With zero explanation the entire time. Additionally having to pay for even water is a bit much, especially when I came prepared, but drank more because it was hot on the bus."
Pros: "The seat not so comfortable but good"
Cons: "Wiz air seems to trick you constantly to get more money out if things they hide from you.. online check-in required.. letting you in work a trolley and then charge you at the gate.. pee service overall.. beware!!"
Pros: "The flight was on time, even though it left with almost 30 mins' delay (despite the fact that boarding was complete with a few minutes before the schedule take off time)."
Cons: "Seat comfort - the seats are tied with Ryanair for worst comfort (rigid and very cramped). Worst of all, though, as with Ryanair - seat allocation. Please, stop this "even though you're travelling together, you may be seated separately unless you pay to choose your seats" nonsense. It's ridiculous!"
Cons: "Comfort of the plane. So freaking uncomfortable. Seats didn’t even recline back."
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Seats are terrible."
Cons: "1h 45 minutes waiting for luggages in Bucharest Otopeni. Still not delivered."
Cons: "Never announced for non-priority boarding, so many people were late to flight, causing delays. Much less than minimum leg room required for any normal human. Sat bolt upright with front seat digging into knees for 3 hours. Far from the cheapest ticket, but totally no frills, no food, no entertainment, limited baggage. Wizz Air mobile app barely works when required (for boarding passes, etc) Not enough room in overheads for all the carry on they allowed, had to sit with bag and jacket on my lap for flight, as no room under seat either."
Pros: "All and all great value for the money"
Cons: "1. The check in was delayed and very chaotic. 2. The landing was horrible 3. The plane was not comfortable ."
Pros: "We got to our destination."
Cons: "There was a problem with their website that was out of our control, that didn’t allow us to print boarding passes and we were charged at the airport even though we had proof we tried and were not able through no fault of our own"
Pros: "Late over two hours due to late arrival of the plane and even so they board us for nothing cauosng us to wait withot bathroom sitta etc."
Cons: "Had to stand in the sun for about 30 mins waiting to board. Had to buy a bottle of water for £2.5 why can’t they just pour a glass of water or even sell at a reasonable price."
Pros: "The Crew was excellent"
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible, took a long time - few and not enough boarding and suitcases counters, which made people wait for a long time and even let others to pass them in line because their flight was earlier. due to this our flight was late by 45 minutes. the food was too expensive."
Pros: "Quick to board, smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "On night flights woken up to serve drinks and given flying details from the pilot. Great in the day but would rather be left and not disturbed at night!"
Pros: "Flight was on schedule"
Cons: "No free drinking water"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I asked upon check in 2 times about my backpack, the representative said its ok 100% to take it on board. At the gate they suddenly say i need to pay now , left me no choice but to pay 60(!) poumd from a small bag!!! The gate representative, Rose is her name, seemed like just a sales person, she didnt even care what i said, and said “ its your fault and tour responsibility “. “Please pay or you wont be able to board” she said. Yes, like a bully, demanded for money, or else.... Worst service i had ever experienced in my 16 years of traveling."
Pros: "Cheap with early booking"
Cons: "No food, even free coffee."
Cons: "the fact the crew arrived to the gate after the planned boarding time causing us to stand too long on the stairways. check in via the app (using iphone 6) was a failure. i was certain i booked with extra luggage - at the check in i was told i didn't. from the reservation confirmation it is not clear what i paid for & there are no means to contact you - email, on line chat - you know the regular things every company today use to proivde customer services which is not only "give us you money". too bad this is WIZZ Air"
Cons: "Terrible service and the fact that you can't check in st the airport without paying is absurd. Absolutely terrible. Implant policy"
Pros: "nice servers"
Cons: "no kosher food for free"
Pros: "cheap, on time"
Cons: "no reclining chairs, no water free"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "My bag was 6cm too big, so they charged me at the airport. After checking their website, the airport overcharged me, and the gestapo who was checking had less customer service manners than my old French teacher, she was a...!"
Cons: "Hidden fees"
Pros: "Flight attendance service was great and smiley"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Actual in-air flying experience was smooth."
Cons: "Due to technical issue with plane, passengers were delayed about 15-20 minutes on the tarmac in a crowded, hot shuttle bus with ineffective air conditioning and almost no fresh air coming in."
Pros: "I will never take flight with this company again!!!!! The worst ever shame on you"
Cons: "I didn't eat No entertainment"
Cons: "The application doesn't allow to add carrier bag check in and we paid high fee in the airport"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Nothing much."
Pros: "only good for short flights....the price.."
Cons: "not comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding and getting off the plane via bus"
Cons: "we didn't get food at all. i purchased a cabin baggage for 40 dollar, and when i went to the check in i paid another 110 euro for checked in baggage although i had only one baggage!!!"
