Friendly staff inflight, flight delayed.
Overall it was all good and Swiss Air is a great company —however check in time in MIami was 1 hour and 45 minutes. This was very frustrating
Better entertainment options and faster boarding.
One of my bags didnt arrived. It was a priority bag. And the flight was a really bad experience. There were two kids (2-3 years old) from two families in business class that cried during literally 10 hours! Was a really long flight
Hi. You canceled my trip and now you are asking me for review? Check my trip record and you will have my review. Call your customer service and you will have the answer. This was the worst experience in my life. Sorry for you.
Pro: "Nothing. There was no flight. The flight was cancelled and you did not notify us. We found it out ourselves by accident. We tried to contact you guys but we could not call or anything other. You guys suck"
Contra: "Notify your customers when the flight is cancelled. Thats the least you can do. Very unprofessional"
Pro: "Great crew & good complimentary food"
Contra: "More seat pitch"
Contra: "Screens need update, mis functions on equipment"
Pro: "Crew was amazing. Good movie selection. Pretty comfortable."
Contra: "Six hour delay. They gave us $20 Franc voucher for food but in the airport a latte is 7.50 so 20 did not even buy a bowl of soup."
Contra: "Haven’t got there yet!!"
Pro: "The space of the seat is wide. Nice chocolate."
Contra: "First, they announced that they need some passengers to voluntarily give up the booking in exchange for 280 refunds (a slightly higher rate which not worth to do it) and 1 stopover the fight to Rome which will arrive at 22.00 instead (our flight is 17.35). About 15 minutes before boarding time, they announced flight delaying. Around 17.45, they announced gate changing from B to A which located at opposite side of the the airport so all passengers run there because of everyone afraid that their booking might be canceled because no one agrees to give up. At both gates, many people try to jump in the queue which no staff comes in the manage the queue. During waiting on the board, the air condition seems to be closed, hard to breathe. Around 19.00, the plane took off the Zurich airport eventually, finish the 1.5 hours delay. The captain announced that it cause by the technical problem of the flight earlier but my thinking it cause from over-booking."
Contra: "I did not have food selection option during my booking the ticket. Would you mind to add food selection options during booking the ticket?"
Pro: "We had a turbulent trip but our pilots were very competent and got us to Zuroch safely. Bathroom was pretty clean."
Contra: "The plane was an older model and very outdated. The flight attendants gave us a choice between chicken or vegetarian pasta. I chose chicken, but it was actually beef. The salad was literally iceberg lettuce and a slice of cucumber. Overall, the meal was one of the lowest quality I've ever had in am airline. The outdated onboard entertainment system was annoying to operate and it was impossible to even see the screen when the person ahead leaned back."
Pro: "On time, nice crew"
Pro: "Lots of room because plane was half full"
Contra: "I arrived almost early enough to get on an earlier flight. I think if I'd pleaded a bit more..."
Contra: "Entertainment system was not working"
Pro: "Good on board service"
Contra: "Again delayed"
Pro: "I was flying business class so staff, food, etc was excellent"
Contra: "I do not understand why arriving to checkin with 90 min, on a DIRECT flight, in business class they can decide to not lead luggage at ZRH. We had to wait for all luggage to come out, then go to lost and found, what is more puzzling is that then they tell you the luggage will be loaded on next flight, arrive at night, but will not deliver it until after 3PM on next day. This is flying business class. Swiss begins to feel like a low cost"
Pro: "crew great smooth flight"
Contra: "no problem and happy crew."
Pro: "The food was the best I’ve ever had in a plane"
Contra: "Sound quality for the films was awful"
Pro: "Also poor this airline is overpriced"
Contra: "Long disorganized boarding process Old airplane"
Pro: "Efficient check-in, boarding and on-board experience. Great seat and entertainment. Food also very decent."
Contra: "I find Swiss’ pricinh policy for on-board internet totallh ludicrous and an outright insult. Also, I sometimes appreciate a bit more empathy in the way things get announced - no announcement for security video or when they disrupt a movie with their Swiss commercial clips - they just turn it on. Not abtreat experience."
Pro: "Excellent crew, shiny disposition"
Contra: "Entertainment: not many new movies worth watching. Not enough TV programs offered."
Pro: "Nice staff, very friendly"
Contra: "Paying for WiFi, could use more comfortable seating"
Pro: "I was late ( I had to drive 230 Km ) and I managed to call in advance the company that was doing the check-in on behalf of SWISS - I asked them the Check-in time closing time and by almost flying ( speeding like crazy ) I arrived before that moment."
Contra: "I did not check the terms and conditions of the ticket. I am a Star Alliance Gold member and I was expecting SWISS to have a similar booking system like the others I fly with. I found out that the ticket fare did not contain checked luggage ( so I had to pay a hefty fee for it ) and also my 20" wheeled case that was ok in all the other flights I took it with me, this time was oversized and overweight . My wife took out the 2 laptops so it became within weight limits but still oversized - My wife paid for the fee ( I wasn't there at the time and she is not a such experienced flyier as I am ) . When I found out about the fee, I checked their rules and I found out that the hand luggage is allowed to be 22" . I saw in the airplane a lot of people with cases having the same size as mine, that went as checked luggage at a cost fo around 40 . I want to see how can I get my money back . . ."
Pro: "Relaxing and graceful service Pleasant flight attendants the crew greeting you as you embark as well as when DS in barking restrooms clean floors clean The flight was very enjoyable this was my second time flying with Swiss air and it was just as enjoyable cannot put in any complaints I give you five stars No complaints it was excellently although it was a short flight from Budapest to Zürich but it was good and the flight from Zürich to JFK New York was excellent my first name is Ibolya"
Contra: "No complaints it was excellent"
Pro: "Best food and attention that I've had on an airline in 20 years. Really. I was telling a friend today, Swiss Air started with drinks, gave us a Parisian baguette sandwich, gave us a healthy breakfast of yoghurt warm croissant butter jam orange juice, drinks again, and several passengers surrounding me got special attention, one woman with a baby, a disabled person, and a teenager that was 6'5" was relaocated by the flight attendant without him even asking to a bulkhead seat for more comfort. You don't see this kind a attention to detail on any US flights or US airlines, so I noticed it. It was as if I was traveling back in the 70's or 80's when Airlines would compete for our dollars with their service. I mentioned to my friend that if I had a choice and Swiss Air was one of the choices, I'd choose Swiss Air over any other airline."
Pro: "The fights themselves were nice, the crew was pleasant and the dinner itself was a very nice surprise"
Contra: "Wow what a cramped space- the minute the person leaned their seat back I had no room and I'm a fairly small pElson. The seat in front of me was almost literally in my lap I couldn't open my tray on their seat back unless they sat up to eat"
Contra: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"
Pro: "The crew was very friendly and attentive. I was impressed at the amount of food we received through out the flight. My family and I enjoyed our flight with Swiss airlines and will definitely use them next time we travel."
Pro: "Tried hard but cannot recollect one thing that was better than average."
Contra: "Not even a smile from the purser and one other crew member on the Swedish leg. The captain hurriedly "explained", no one understood him, why we were so delayed, but he did not apologize! Zurich airport has no charging sockets! (Ancient) All of terminal A has not a single one! No one supervised the loading passengers not to interfere with those passing by. It was a complete mess. We took off 50 minutes late from Zurich, with no apparent reason. Worst in years for me. We sat in the plane for 30 minutes and were not offered even water. Big fail! (btw, I am unusually so critical)."
Contra: "Booked four flights from Zurich to Prague, but plans changed. No way to get a refund or cancellation although I tried two weeks beforehand. Disappointing to say the least."
Pro: "GREAT SERVICE, GREAT PEOPLE!"
Pro: "The flight had a delay but managed to (partially) make up for it."
Contra: "Boarding was a little slow. Perhaps it would be nice to more explicitly explain to people how to more quickly stow their luggage and then sit down in order to let other people through. The seats felt a little more cramped than usual."
Contra: "Over 1h delay Horrible sandwich Very rude staff"
Pro: "Registration and baggage check was fine, no line to wait im. The flight was moderately full. Good food and beverage service (although Lufthasa is a bit better)."
Contra: "Zurich airport dining facilities are poor - no choice of warm food and pricey."
Pro: "Food usually was very bad on SWISS flights' econ class, this was surprisingly better (just better, not good). Staff were professional and polite though they spoke very loud even when most people around were asleep."
Contra: "At check-in counters, staff managing the queues did not speak English at all, same thing at the security check queue, only Spanish speaking. There should be some clearer instructions of how and where to queue at boarding. Everyone just wanted to cut queue."
Pro: "zurich a great airport."
Contra: "cheese roll"
Contra: "There is little that can be done to make a long haul flight comfortable when a baby is screaming and crying for it's entire duration. Its behaviour cannot be helped. But it certainly didn't make the flight comfortable, nor did the young child kicking incessantly at the back of my and my daughter's seats. This could have occurred on any flight, but it didn't contribute to having a positive experience on this one. The flight attendant serving breakfast completely ignored that fact that I was awake and strolled past without asking if I would like anything as meals were being served. I informed another flight attendant that we hadn't been offered breakfast and she was able to provide us with meals. Besides this the cabin crew were courteous and pleasant. I've flown with Swiss on other occasions and have had better experiences. I'd like to think this was just a one off and not representative of the level of service that Swiss normally provides."
Pro: "Friendly crew and very professoinal"
Contra: "Old plane"
Pro: "The flight itself was good, smooth."
Contra: "I had requested a special meal for dietary reasons but it was not available. The flight crew did make some effort to find me something I could eat."
Pro: "Too short to rate but good overall"
Pro: "Gate changes and delays boarding made getting food between flights an impossibility. On board food was appreciated but was a snack and in 12+ hours travelling this made it tough."
Pro: "Great entertainment center. Complimentary alcohol and snacks. All this masks the torture of sitting in a way -too-small seat for 11 hours plus."
Pro: "I liked nearly the entire experience. The food was first rate. The crew was friendly & helpful. The seats were so comfortable and the entertainment was plentiful."
Contra: "The boarding process and distance required for transfer was daunting and complicated. Many of us feared we would miss our connection. The lines were excruciatingly long and caused delays that were unnecessary."
Contra: "An hour late, not Swiss fault but Captain continued to broadcast 5-10 minute delays. Just say it's going to be an hour, then we can all turn our phones back on and go to the lavatory."
Pro: "The flight went very smoothly. This was my first international flight and it was a very successful flight. I enjoyed the meals and the flight attendants were very polite."
Contra: "I did not like that the very impolite lady sitting directly in front of me reclined her seat as far as it could recline. As my seat was unable to recline this provided little to no leg room. She refused to compromise. Luckily, I was sitting next to a couple nice gentlemen who switched seats with me."
Pro: "Stewards were great. The food was good and generous."
Contra: "Seat rows were too close together and seats were uncomfortable for the 11 hour flight."
It was a pleasure to travel with Turkish Airlines. Excellent food, entertainment, and staff, not to mention the little pouches with basic necessities for the flight and the safety bags. It really gives you the feeling that this company cares for the comfort and safety of their clients.
Missed this flight due to previous flight being delayed. No one helped with getting me through customs and borders security so I can make it on time. I had to stand in the longest line and end up staying overnight in Toronto. Now the airlines won’t pay for my hotel accommodation
Overall VERY impressed. Food was absolutely top notch, service was good. We transferred in Istanbul and this is a gorgeous airport. It's a bit far from the city but everything else was great. Turkish Airlines Airlines put us up on a hotel since we had a long layover. Very impressed and would certainly look forward to another flight with them. 10/10 and the price was right
Long trip not enough snacks for the kids , crew are not very helpful
Pro: "The Airplane was good and the crew was very helpful."
Contra: "The route from Bucharest to Istanbul could be shorter and the way from the airplane to the airport could be through the jetway not through the uncomfortable buses."
Pro: "The crew did their best. The company, the policies, the times ... a different story."
Contra: "Stop boarding pets on a transatlantic 11.5 hours long flight - if the owners are nuts (although they swear they love their pets) air companies must be more responsible. The first air company that will refuse to cabin board pets will be my only company to fly for the rest of my life. Sometimes, saying NO is the right answer."
Pro: "Very professional !"
Contra: "The first coffee given at the beginning of the journey,was very good,(which is in general unusual during the flights), but the one given at the end of the trip was bad."
Pro: "The service and food are always fantastic. The staff really goes out of their way to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. The ticket price was fantastic too!"
Pro: "Onboard service was good -breakfast served was good."
Contra: "The seats are somewhat uncomfortable but OK for only a 1 h and 40 min flight"
Contra: "Dismal customer service"
Pro: "The plane :)"
Contra: "After a tech problem that kept the flight on the ground .. The rebooking staff were awful"
Pro: "Better than all others at this time."
Contra: "My seat."
Pro: "For once, on time departure. Quick boarding. Courteous service."
Contra: "Cabin a little too cold for passengers around me."
Pro: "Good food, entertainment options, comfortable seat"
Contra: "Chaotic boarding process in Tashkent"
Pro: "The hot stewardess. She not only was gorgeous she smelled fantastic. What a treat to look at! Hire more beautiful women. Fire the fat ones."
Contra: "No where to stash my legs. Why bother to have feet, knees and legs while flying. While flying economy class, airlines should require amputation of legs at the hip. You should just do it because at the end of a long flight your legs will fall off anyhow. They will be rotten and full of ganggreene from no blood flow."
Contra: "Pilot needs to learn how to land"
Contra: "Clientele on plane are junky. The crew is rude. Boarding is chaotic. No information about delays or why things are taking so long not shared. Planes feel old and dirty. Strongly do not recommend."
Pro: "On-time departure. very polite and friendly staff and we got there fast!"
Pro: "The seats reclining not only the back. The food very tasty."
Contra: "I think finding a way to empower the crew to explain to passangers who took the extra seats ( some up to 5 per person) the entire 12 hours, that they must switch at some point if asked. There weren’t willing to do it on their own( being civil is a learned skill) and refused to allow someone else to take a nep on the extra seats as if they had paid for it."
Contra: "The flight arrived late and Tipton Long to depart."
Contra: "Call or sms passengers . Waiting 4 hours and nobody at onboarding counter is not acceptable Plane acilities and meal under any expectations"
Pro: "Great seating & service"
Contra: "Non stop talking people behind me!!!!"
Pro: "Nothing. The flight never happened coastumwr service was very bad"
Contra: "The were not very helpful, I lost the plain and they refuse to change my dates. I am I elderly women and they took advantage. I was force to by one more ticket when I live from I very small income. So know my 3 months social security I have to pay the new ticket. No mony left for food or my medication."
Contra: "Lost the bag and will return it . Still discussing with them after five days. Promising to deliver each day but then not doing it. Miserable experience and do not recommend using this airline."
Pro: "This flight was perfect, good food and excellent crew."
Contra: "My luggage did not arrive with me from Istanbul but they put on the next available flight, so big deal"
Pro: "Service and people"
Contra: "Long lines and security pat downs...."
Pro: "The rear exit of the plane. The cabin crew were very attentive, almost too much. I brought my cat and she didn't get to sleep much. I appreciate that the attendants wanted to visit with her and give her their attention but it kept her from sleeping and woke me up. Since she had no proper place to use the bathroom she needed to be sleeping to keep her body clock in order."
Contra: "HOT AIRPORT AND PLANE...no overhead fan on the plane to cool off. Food not very tasty. My seat was switched after it was reserved to accommodate another passenger without my knowledge. The reason was not a valid one."
Pro: "Excellent service, staff and food. All flights ran smooth, food and beverages were great and service from the crew was beyond great. During the fight, besides the food and drinks, we had lots of entertainment and games in the tv devices. I will definitely fly with Turkish Airlines again in the future."
Contra: "leaving late"
Pro: "We liked how easy it was for English speakers - English announcements, English-speaking attendants, good signage at airports."
Contra: "Our luggage did not transfer in Istanbul (1 hour layover) and didn't arrive in Warsaw for nearly 48 hours (actually 45 hours)."
Contra: "I was at the gate for my flight from Istanbul to Bucharest but 25 minutes before departure I noticed that passengers were lining up at a different gate so I asked what happened. I was told the flight had departed even though it was still 25 minutes before flight time. I then had to go to ticket sales where they charged me $425 dollars for the 80 minute flight to Bucharest. In the US, I would have been put on the next available flight fee of charge. I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."
Contra: "Nothing :D"
Pro: "The food was amazing."
Pro: "The crew was nice."
Contra: "We were in the plane over Istanbul airport for more than half an hour because we did not have the permission to land. That put a lot a pressure on us because we had less than 20 minutes to catch our connecting flight to US."
Contra: "On the San Francisco to Istanbul flight the food was a bit greasy. Otherwise good service from crew and company."
Pro: "The service and entertainment!"
Pro: "The food and the boarding was fast."
Contra: "Everything was great."
Pro: "It was nice to receive a meal on such a short flight."
Pro: "Nice onboard entertainment system"
Contra: "Extremely rude flight attendants. Did not care at all for customer service. Do not expect western standard service ! Service is 3rd world."
Pro: "I loved that they give out the little packs of socks, slippers, ear buds, eye cover, and toothbrush with toothpaste. Also, the movie and TV show selection is excellent! It definitely kept me entertained for the entire 10 hour flight!"
Contra: "By the time the food and beverage cart got to my section of the plane, they were out of several items. It was a little disappointing. But the options that remained were still sufficient."
Pro: "Crew was efficient"
Contra: "The baggage handlers broke a wheel off my suitcase and damaged the hand!e."
Contra: "YOU destroy the traveler Luggage at this trip and there is some items missing . Thank you"
Contra: "Flight left without us even though they knew our flight had landed and we were on our way. Then they rerouted us with a longer flight and our luggage didn’t make it."
Contra: "Self-check-in at Munich was unnecessarily complex. Same for procedure to check in luggage. Also, the passport had to be inspected twice despite being already in the secure zone."
Pro: "Lufthansa is an airline in a different class altogether. Can not compare with any commercial airline that flies to Europe"
Pro: "In-flight crew was friendly, the food & beverages were OK and there were plenty of in-flight entertainment options."
Contra: "They double charged the baggage fees: I prepaid in advance but upon checking in for the return flight the representative wasn't able to locate the appropriate information, although I had a printed copy of the confirmation email they sent. I had to pay for it again which is a lousy experience."
Pro: "The crew is attentive and friendly The seats are flat-lay"
Contra: "The food is mediocre at best Seats are narrow"
Pro: "Loved it!"
Contra: "Liked it all"
Pro: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight was short but pleasant."
Contra: "The long lines. After check in and security, boarding could have involved less of a standing and waiting, with a bit of ahead communication that could be attained. For instance indicate the order of boarding, time until boarding, and place where the passengers from rows 50-70 should form ia line..."
Pro: "Comfortable seats and great movie selection. They also had books and games for kids."
Contra: "The food was good but could have been better."
Pro: "easy boarding, great flight attendants"
Pro: "All good - Lufthansa even handled an unexpected air traffic delay well, meaning my connection still worked. Great price too - booked at short notice and Lufthansa business was half the price of BA. Far better device too."
Contra: "No negatives."
Pro: "Flight on time, good service, helpful staff"
Pro: "Crew very nice and carefull"
Contra: "My luggage was destroied ;-("
Pro: "Staff was very polite, helpful, and attentive. Our flight left late due to a delay with the plane, and the flight attendants were very proactive about informing passengers about making connections and doing all they could to help."
Contra: "All good."
Contra: "I was waiting over 1 hr for my suitcase...."
Pro: "We originally paid for seats a month before and were told to move seats because the plane was full. Plane was not full. Would like refund."
Contra: "Customer service"
Pro: "The food was better than average. Portions were good and it was tasty. Movie selection was also great and included many recent releases. They provided a hot towel service bedorw and after meals which I loved."
Contra: "Boarding was slow and the plane waited almost an hour after boarding was completed."
Pro: "Lufthansa has it all together and knows how to fly. I recommend to everyone!"
Pro: "Comfortable seats with plenty of room. Enjoyable crew during the flight."
Contra: "I did not have any complaints about this specific flight."
Pro: "Excellent service from staff on the flight"
Contra: "Long line-up in Frankfurt at Lufthansa Passport control . Could probably open up the third counter and not just one Business and one Economy? First meal ( Turkey) had something in it that blowded me up all the way to Vancouver! Not sure if it was the vegetables or?? Not nice if you can't walk around and also not great for your neighbor to the right and left. I usually don't experience this with my food that I cook or choose."
Pro: "I travel in so many airline but lufthasen is very good airline i want to travel again"
Pro: "Individual screens for all seats with a varied selection of entertainment options. Plenty of room under the seat for my carry-on. (It helped that no one was in the seat next to me.) Beverages were offered frequently. Smooth flight, smooth landing."
Pro: "Very good service.."
Contra: "A flight attendant from Bucharest to Frankfurt kept bumping her behind in my shoulder. Before this she was not helpful when I asked her where to put my bag. She shoukd not work with people if she does not like them. Otherwise, everything was great: food, space, movies."
Pro: "Not a good experience overall."
Contra: "Our luggage did not arrive in Naples with us. We heard nothing from Lufthansa despite making numerous attempts to email and call the airline. Our hotel tried to call as well to see if someone could at least tell us if and when our luggage might arrive.We had to go out and buy clothes and personal items. It was a terrible way to start a holiday."
Contra: "crew was not friendly"
Contra: "It wasn't Lufthansa"
Contra: "Flight got canceled and never got new flight! Also never got money back!"
Contra: "It took over an hour to drop off a bag prior to boarding. I had already checked in online. There were long lines in Bucharest and simply not enough staff working the Lufthansa desks."
Contra: "Although we had reserved (paid) seats as a family in an entire row, upon check in we were given different seats. We had to spend 20 minutes talking with different agents in order to get our original seats."
Pro: "Movie selection, wine and food"
Contra: "Crying babies - outside of the crew control"
Pro: "Efficient boarding. On time departure."
Pro: "Real food with real tableware even in the Econ section. Unbelievably courteous staff. Will make it impossible to fly Anyone else when going overseas"

Pro: "Plane was clean and service was great."
Contra: "huge plane, no space. painful."
Contra: "Too many controls during boarding"
Pro: "Taking off was good"
Contra: "Landing was a little bit stressful. But still ok."
Pro: "Despite the wintry weather, a safe take off and a nice flight. A plus to Otopeni (Bucharest) airport administration - clean runaway, no snow no ice on it."
Contra: "Delay time should be posted accordingly at the gate."
Contra: "This Air Canada flight was operated by Lufthansa and was cancelled due to the strike. So, this means that I am still in Germany which is not the worst place in the world to be stuck, especially because my parents live here. So a few day longer are not a problem for me, but if it takes a week, it is not good because I am supposed to be at work and I am using up vacation I had planned to spent with my family."
Contra: "My flight was cancelled due to the pilots' strike. I only learned about this when I attempted online check in. Lufthansa never attempted to notify me. Then when I called in to the Romania Service Center to rebook, the phones went down in the middle of the call. That is understandable given the extreme volume of calls they were handling. What is unacceptable, is that they made no attempt to contact me once the phones were up. I ended up calling the U.S. service center at 1am local time to rebook...only 3 hours before I needed to leave for the airport. It took an hour - which I paid for at direct dial international rates - to find a flight. I'm very grateful for the U.S. service rep who was kind and helpful. She was the one bright spot in this poorly handled situation."
Contra: "Ticket written on Air Canada but Lufthansa was carrier. Not possible to check-in on line leaving very few choices for seating. Tried to check-in on Sunday for Monday flight -- system errors resulted and phone number provided by system only works M-Sat. My initial leg was on Iberia and they could not check me in for entire flight. Major scramble in Frankfort to resolve issues. Never again!"
Pro: "The crew was especially cheerful and helpful. The food was surprisingly good for airline food. I have always had a good experience on Lufthansa and this trip was no exception."
Contra: "Some of the movie choices were a little dated."
Pro: "Seat backs are flatter, which for me (a shorter woman) is much more comfortable than the more contoured seats on other airlines."
Contra: "Very dry sandwiches."
Pro: "crew was very nice engaging. shopping at Munich airport was unexpectedly good."
Contra: "My seat didn't recline. I changed seats with my sister mid flight so I could sleep."
Pro: "Organized boarding, service, left on time"
Contra: "No gluten-free food when they served the food. They said that they didn't serve gluten-free food on short flights, but this was two and a half hours. Also, I had asked for a gluten-free meal when I booked my flight. Not good in today's world, when quite a few people have to eat gluten-free. (I am a medical doctor.)"
Pro: "Excellent service, great airplane, and a high level of professionalism on the part of all Lufthansa crew members. I felt pampered."
Contra: "I was in the next to last row in economy class. The person ahead of me put his seat back as far as it would go. that is his right. Behind me were two friends traveling with me. I doubt if their seats reclined (the last row) so I did not attempt to recline my seat. As a result I was a true "sardine". There was so little space between my face and the seat back ahead of me I could not look at the video screen, which was positioned at an angle when the seat was back. I just closed my eyes and let it pass. Economy plus next time? I have long legs."
Pro: "Everything went fine."
My original flight was cancelled and no explanation was provided. The flight wasn’t automatically rebooked so I spend roughly 4 hours with different service desk workers. They failed to actually “ticket” my booking so I had to then go to the service desk at the airport so that I could checkin. Austrian also needs to update their entertainment. They only add a new release of importance seemingly every quarter.
Pentru mine totul a funcționat bine… chiar foarte bine
Pro: "The seat i got was great"
Contra: "There was a delay"
Contra: "Mi s-au pierdut bagajele !"
Pro: "Just in time take of and landing, staff friendliness"
Pro: "They vere OK!"
Contra: "Food and drinks!"
Pro: "The hotel was nice although I was unable to sleep due to the delays all around concerning my connecting flight. I am thoroughly upset because I contacted the airlines 3 times in May to express my concern with the 30mins layover. And to no avail. My worst concerns are being played out now. It appears that their isn’t any concern from the airlines about this catastrophe impacting so many people. Shame on you."
Contra: "The connecting flight departed before the first flight landed. Then I was given the wrong information of gate departure by airport personnel. After running like crazy to find this gate for departure, the plane had already departed before we even landed. There wasn’t anyone around to help, and finally I found an airport worker who gave me the same incorrect information. She was as perplexed as was I. Finally, she directed me to the information booth where I was booked in a flight the next day. The food voucher was insufficient to cover dinner, i had to pay out of my pocket but I was frugal given the financial situation. The taxi service personnel were rude and it took a long time to taxi me to the hotel where I am unable to sleep because I have an early morning g departure. All in all, between the airport delays getting me to the hotel, lack of proper food and treatment by personnel, I am exhausted and lost sleep in the process."
Pro: "One crew member in the OTP-VIE flight that was great in service ."
Contra: "The delaying of both flights . The crew service on the VIE-NICE flight was awful ."
Pro: "Amazing leg room, free snack and drink, free wi-fi."

Pro: "Everything was just right."
Pro: "Clean aircraft, polite crew."
Contra: "1. Check-In , Check-In , check-In .. automated much more time consuming and probably costly. 2. Delayed flight (as usual) .. 6.am D.T. should either mean 6.00 or 6.05 or 6.10 ... but not 6.30. 3. Very tight connection flights in Vienna, so a slight delay could mean missed connection. 4. Food"
Pro: "Quick boarding decent legroom"
Contra: "Breakfast was not great"
Pro: "good food, drinks, good entertainment options"

Would not recommend Austrian Airlines, ever. -Mark Cox"

Pro: "The plane was clean, fresh looking. Flight attendants were helpful and courteous."
Contra: "Check in at Vienna airport was awful! Chaotic, no help! Kiosk software was horrible. Touch screens didn't work. No back button so, if you made a mistake you had to start from the beginning. Passport reader was not working properly. Machines were slow and delayed in responding. Not enough staff available for assistance. Arrival at LAX was even worse. Plane had to taxi for 30 minutes all about the airport runways. Finally got to a gate -almost on the beach! Then had to bus everyone to main terminal. Slow in getting bags to the passenger pickup. It took us 2 hours post touchdown to get out of the airport! Almost missed the airport shuttle,"

As people were getting ready to board and waiting in the line, they were told to go back to customer service to register passports and get new boarding passes, without prior announcement.

Very cramped flight, overhead bins were all completely filled, and passengers had to fly with bags by their feet which was not very comfortable for me personally.

Pro: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Contra: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"

Contra: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Contra: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."

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?"
