Pros: "Crew was very nice, appreciated that they came by with water often"
Cons: "Legroom is very cramped, entertainment options are limited. After one 10-hour flight, you've seen everything you wanted to, so the return flight is a bummer"
Pros: "The boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Some of the crew members were rude and inconsiderate - if you see that someone is sleeping, you don’t stand at their seat and lean on it and shake it while you’re waiting to give the security demo before take off."
Pros: "Crew was top"
Cons: "45 min delay , shame ..... always the same problem with Frankfurt airport..."
Pros: "Nice smooth flight. Also lovely to be offered a drink and food. Although the quiche is not great. Wasn’t nicer last year"
Cons: "Maybe just change the quiche. Very dry"
Pros: "The boarding process was much easier and faster. No delayed flights."
Cons: "I used the laboratory before takeoff as I was one of the first people on the plane and I forgot to go before I boarded. The hand soap container was empty and I had to tell one of the crew. Shouldn’t that have been taken care of before boarding passengers?"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, food was very good."
Pros: "Good crew and despite the short flight we even got a sandwich which was great after a long day"
Cons: "No entertainment but short flight"
Cons: "We didn’t make it to Venice due to delays because Boston wasn’t ready for a snowstorm."
Pros: "There was too little space between rows. Sometimes it was too difficult to watch a movie because the screen was too close to my face."
Pros: "Nothing stood out"
Cons: "Nothing Stood out"
Pros: "Great customer service, the crew was professional and courteous."
Pros: "Paid in advance 45.00 a seat to reserve! Otherwise they assign at Check-in! Still ended up with a standard not premium seats in center. I chose 2 side seats online but plane must have changed. Literally could not move. My travel partner ended up spilling wine on himself primarily due to this and 1/2 size drop down trays. Call button brought no help , had to get up and go retrieve steward in back myself!"
Cons: "Comfortability , mediocre service."
Pros: "Mobile check in worked well. Onboard service is very good, with decent food and complimentary beverages including beer and wine. Seats are relatively comfortable. Extensive selection of TV and movie entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit helter skelter. It’s a rather annoying that selecting seats is only available for an extra fee. The A340s used on this route are getting a little on the old side, and the once state of the art in seat entertainment system has a tendency to crash frequently and require lengthy reboots."
Pros: "Staff friendly and flight very smooth"
Cons: "The breakfast was very poor. Two different servings of OJ(why?), non fat yoghurt and bread. Coffee came with only one cream. Media screen and audio did not work, and usb charger kept turning off. Barely able to recharge phone over the span of 10 hour flight! My next neighbor had same problem."
Pros: "Everything! The cleanest aircraft I have ever been on, excellent crew, amazing breakfast!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was superb"
Pros: "Nice self boarding"
Cons: "No big screen to communicate priority to boarding since I am deaf."
Pros: "Generally Swiss air was good"
Cons: "I ask a question if we will arriving late, she give me smart Remarks that we will be on time. No we were late 28 minutes my luggage did not arrive, I'm 4 hours from Warsaw, I wait for luggage which was lost and miss my connection do travel forward. I got home at 8 pm. She check my carry on and they lost , I have only bag with lipstick in there"
Cons: "The way the movies, needed extra parts. No touch screen"
Pros: "100% the best flight experience I've ever had flying. Wish I flew to Europe more so I could fly with Swiss more often. Thanks!"
Pros: "Even though the flight was very short, the team moved quickly through the cabin ensuring everybody had a drink and a snack. They looked quite concerned when I turned down the pretzel sandwich, so I accepted and found it quite good! Also, team made sure my parent with reduced-mobility had a good boarding and transfer experience."
Cons: "As always, seats are narrow. And the "neighbors" were normal-sized. The usual struggle for elbow "air-space" occurred."
Cons: "Budapest airport crew is very slow. It took them 45 min to get the baggages out ."
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "Large person next to me spilled over into my seat. Large people should sit with folks like themselves"
Pros: "Excellent organization, food and entertainment. Impeccable service."
Pros: "Kind crew and a short flight"
Cons: "Snack choices too limited, but it was great that they even had them."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "They lost my bag for 6 days. It was an absolute horrible experience. There was a disconnect between their outsourced baggage tracer company and Swiss. Will NEVER fly again."
Pros: "i'd like services and the food"
Pros: "I liked everything except my luggage"
Cons: "I did not like the way Beatice of Swiss Air in Zurich completely rushed me at the gate without trying to talk to Mr. Mueller at checkin 1. I told her that He had starte an ardious process in recovering my luggage. She visibly tried to rush me through the process and told me there was othing that could be done. It felt really ugly to be lied to right to my face, when she diditn try to connect with someone from her own staff who had tried alot of heard to work to help me rectify the luggage question. For all we know, my luggage was in Zuruch, and her actions impeded the luggage from getting onto my plane."
Pros: "The staff was very attentive."
Cons: "The line at the check in was quite long. Luckily I had only carryon"
Cons: "The flight was late and I almost lost my connecting flight."
Cons: "Don't like to wait for no one 30 min inside airplane"
Pros: "One on the plane service and food were very good. In flight movies limited in number of choices"
Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour because they couldn't fuel the plane and had to wait for trucks. Did not update the board at the gate with boarding times and people waited on long lines unnecessarily because they did not update the boarding times. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Good service inflight"
Cons: "You have to pay for second piece of luggage flying from US to Asia. Most airlines allow two pieces for these destinations even for economy class."
Pros: "Once boarded we took off pretty quickly, crew were extremely nice, food was great"
Cons: "no entertainment at all."
Pros: "Friendly and attentive staff, plenty of good food and beverages. Comfortable seats"
Cons: "There wasn't anything bad"
Pros: "Crew and overall service was great. Crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Food wasn't the usual Swiss quality this time. Are seats getting smaller? Very cramped, no leg room (I am a 164 cm, 53 kg female). I had some black metal box in my legroom area on top of everything. It would be absolutely impossible to take the "crash position" highlighted in the safety video."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats/Bed. tray table hard to come out. no one answered the bell. Old movies (same 2 yrs ago). 1st meal OK, not great. Second meals not good at all. They should learn service from Lufthansa/United or Emirates. Very Disappointed."
Cons: "No video screens at the seats or any entertainment."
Pros: "Time of flight"
Cons: "Food and entertainment were not good. Person next to me smelled bad"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. Asked 3 different personnel at Zurich airport at no one could help with wifi or how it could be accessed since both wifi scanning machine in Gate E area weren't working. It just seemed that they were incompetent or weren't willing to help. Crew on flight were very nice. Vegetarian food options better than chicken / meat options."
Pros: "Decent comfort in the plane. Friendly staff."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. This was the third time in the last 4 times I traveled this route"
Pros: "Short flight was fine."
Pros: "Was fed dinner and breakfast on an overnight flight, all was very good. Pillows and a blanket made it a very comfortable flight"
Cons: "seat size and comfort. Had metal nox take good part of my footroom. small aisle. Food lousy."
Pros: "The boarding process was well organized. The crew was overall pleasant."
Cons: "Check in time at the swiss ticket counter exceeded one hour. Too little space per seat. At breakfast, I was asked by the steward to bring my seat forward (presumably so that the people behind me could have more space?), when the people in front of me were reclined: my face was literally centimeters from their seat, which made eating breakfast difficult and unpleasant. The breakfast rolls were clearly not fresh and we're tough and dry, inspite of having been heated."
Pros: "Everything was perfect - on time, polite, kind"
Pros: "Frendly staff"
Cons: "a standard sandwich it was ok but I expect more from a premium carrier"
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, great crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no USB port and no entertainment"
Cons: "Fix the damn KIOSKS at Vienna!"
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and effortless."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything."
Pros: "The earphones for out two seats only worked intermittently, but the Purser, Lee-Ann handled it professionally and pleasantly. That was the only disappointment in an otherwise pleasant flight"
Cons: "The earphones could have worked!"
Pros: "The crew were very nice, food was tasty, seat comfortable and the entertainment great as well. Will be flying KLM again soon :)"
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. Flights were on time if not even early."
Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. 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."
Pros: "Nice crew pilot food and beverage"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Pros: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."
Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "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!"
Pros: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."
Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."
Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."
Pros: "Good multi media access and content"
Pros: "Easy boarding, plenty of room"
Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"
Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "Special treat for King's Day Friendly crew"
Cons: "15 min late boarding 30 min delay leaving the gate Very little leg room"
This was a terrible flight. Crowded flight. Difficult boarding. Our bags were lost and never made it to Budapest. Here with no bags, and unsure if we will get them. Terrible flight. Will avoid Lufthansa and Frankfort in the future.
Pros: "It was an uneventful flight. The entertainment system worked well and food was good."
Cons: "The lights kept coming on every few minutes making sleep nearly impossible."
Pros: "Great service, tasty sandwich."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit of a scrum."
Pros: "Nice crew, friendly. Plenty room on flight as it not booked full. Flight left on time"
Pros: "Everything was fine!"
Cons: "Everything was fine!"
Pros: "Everything was great thanks"
Cons: "Perfect trip"
Pros: "I loved the abundance of movies you can choose from."
Cons: "I don't know."
Pros: "Delayed bad"
Cons: "Keep time scheduled"
Pros: "The crew was great. The sandwich was tasty. And, I loved the leg room!"
Pros: "Friendly crew provided excellent service. Has live TV for sports. I was able to watch couple EPL soccer games and the NBA playoffs. It also has 3 live camera views from the mounted cameras outside. It was really cool."
Cons: "In economy class and in the middle. has no room to even straighten out my legs. Guess they followed American airlines' lead in adding more rows to squeeze in more customers. Too bad"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and we were pleasantly surprised to be fed something on the short flight!"
Cons: "Although it was a 4 hour layover, it took almost 3 hours before we saw where our gate was for the flight."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed in Italy and I was worried I would miss the connecting flights to the US. But not to worry Lufthansa waited for our flight and got our luggage on board as well. The food was outstanding."
Cons: "That we could not by-pass the German passport check and go right to the next flight and check out passports only ones."
Pros: "Efficient, on time."
Cons: "Cost for wifi"
Cons: "Upon arriving to Frankfurt airport (gate Z) from Boston, i had an hour to make it to gate A including passport control. Once I got to to gates A50-69 I was told that i had to turn back and go through a different passport control as the one close to gates A50-69 was too busy/full. So I turned back although i had no specific gate number where the passport control was. Once I got there, after 10 mins walking (around gate Z20) around and asking lufthansa staff I came across a rather long queue. At that point I only had 30 mins until my flight to Budapest was boarding. I knew I would not get through that queue on time and there was no assistance. So I decided to turn nack and go back to gates A50-69 assport cobtrol where luckily there was no queue at all. I do not understand why i was turned away by staff the very first time I got to that passport control and why there was no assistance by airport staff. Not happy at all about that."
Cons: "See problem with the KAYAK reservation above."
Pros: "Staff, especially male steward was very professional and dedicated. Bravo for the effort for the boy."
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "They lost 2 of my checked in bags and damaged 2 others."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew."
Pros: "Welcoming from the crew"
Cons: "Take off was very scared"
Cons: "Apparently the rude gate agent decided to randomly pull people out of the mass gaggle for boarding and check carryons she seemed to believe we’re too heavy or big, while letting other bigger ones and heavier ones stating safety concerns. The bin has a total weigh limit, not the individual bag. Lufthansa needs to educate its employees."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice."
Cons: "You get onecthecshuttle bus first but then it iscafree for all when you disembark. Only 9ne stairway was operational when we arrived so slow boarding. Business Class seats are same ad economy - just the middle seat is vacant. You get a mediocre meal."
Cons: "pastry, not sandwich"
Pros: "Used both front and back doors to board the plane."
Cons: "Unfortunately, boarding wasn't well organized. It would have been more helpful if rows (1 through X) used the front door and rows (X+1 through Y) used the back door. We had people seated in the front of the plane using the back door and people in the back of the plane using the front door. It slowed the whole process down and was rather chaotic."
Cons: "Due to the reason that the flight was overbookef LH asked us to drop off our hand luggages as well in MXP, however both were approved for the cabine. Due to the late departure our luggages missed the connection so they left our luggage behind in MUC"
Pros: "at RDU after they missed to notify me in time, they were very nice to find me the fastest route on the next day, not miss my whole conference . They give me food vulture also. most of the flying attendances were really kind under my travel, except on the MUC-IAD plane"
Cons: "They didn't notify me in time on a delay and didn't suggested a different route. Therefore I was able to flew just the following day as my connection to the oversea flight was more then an hour delay. It happened with me flying to Budapest, and also flying back from Budapest. Make you better understand, that does it mean for me: in Budapest I missed the first part of my conference, and with the flying back one day later I lost one payed work day. As I have family in Budapest I decided to stay for the night there, and not at Munich, but just rescheduling my flight and providing me a taxi drive was so complicated, that it took two and half extra hrs at the airport, Also Lufhansa put me in my rescheduled back trip the MUC-IAD flight on the 45C seat, what was the worst seat on the plane. Not just that. When they have plenty of empty seat in all of the section, and they wanted to sell it the economy plus seats for more than hundred dollars, I mentioned to the fight attendance my misery ,and how I don't like the seat what I got, and she laughed on me, and I heard her telling her colleagues,this kind of funny way as they were behind me. That's no how they need to treat passenger, Also on flying back they didn't react fast, and they missed to put me on the Frankfurt plane, what could be an alternative route, on the same day, instead they sent me desk to desk."
Cons: "Boarding free for all, therefore confusing and slow"
Pros: "Boarding and timeliness"
Cons: "Entertainment system on 2 out of 4 flights didn't work well. Only 1 of the earphones worked on my seat, practically useless. Crew was grumpy the whole time, and food was average at best."
Cons: "My return travel was on lufthansa but due t delays in departing I missed my flight to the US. We were treated very poorly and slowly by service center representatives. The flight we missed was still at the gate but the door had closed. We were told the flight was oversold so it benefited the airline that we missed it. It’s muxh cheaper to put us in a horrible hotel with disgusting food and fly us out the next day, then pay people to choose a new flight. I had two small children at home and Diebel to this incompetence missed my 4 year olds birthday. He was devastated all thanks to your airline."
Pros: "From boarding to the whole in flight experience - special meal never came, paid extra for seats and wish I never did, food is terrible , luggage is lost on the way back - week later no contact! Never again"
Cons: "I would like for this airline to close down and never hurt anyone again!"
Pros: "Maintaining traditional tourist class service, i.e. a little bag of snack, soft drinks served on even a very short flight."
Cons: "Boarding was free for all, would've preferred boarding by rows."
Cons: "They don't have entertainment"
Pros: "Every things was perfect Thanks alot for the stuff who served during the flight they were very kind and helpful , this is the first time that I enjoyed the time being in this flight Thank you again"
Pros: "Once we got started the flight was OK. Great crew, the pilot did all the best to catch up for the delay caused in FRA."
Cons: "Once we were all onboard we had to wait in FRA in the plane until someone's baggage was unloaded. The wait time was almost 1 hour which was not pleasant esp. with small children. No entertainment onboard."
Pros: "Salmon sandwich, friendly, nice crew."
Cons: "Lot of stairs, bus ride to the plan for boarding."
Pros: "Was on time , food is pretty delicious still."
Cons: "Flight crew . No alcohol available after the 1st! round. She told me she doesn't have it maybe later.. she never gave me after that. I always had it min 3-4 times before. My first choice is always Lufthansa but after this time I am not sure anymore, I was very disappointed with my attendant and made this trip a bad experience with them. Movie selection not so great either"
Pros: "it was on time and we arrived in one piece"
Cons: "the second leg from FRA to BUD entailed a massively disorganized, no queue control free for all to go through the boarding gates, all of which just led to an overcrowded bus.... which meandered through the airport to your jet on the tarmac.. they then allowed boarding from either rear or front of plane which of course lead to the throngs meeting in the middle and trying to squeeze past each other... horrible. Then... the checked bag did not make it to Budapest as they forgot to transfer it in FRA. so, yeah all in all it was a cheap flight and we got what we paid for."
Pros: "Our flight attendants were very kind and caring, and we landed safely in Budapest. The kids even had the chance to talk to the pilot/co-pilot before getting out of plane, they really loved it. Thank you!"
Pros: "The snack was really good (a salami sandwich and a glass of wine)."
Pros: "Ease of making connecting flight to Budapest"
Pros: "Quick and professional"
Pros: "First time for flying Lufthansa and I rate it higher than Emirates which was my favorite until now. Reasons? Number one, the crew. On top of every detail for a comfortable flight. Ten hours and I didn't sleep at all( never can sleep sitting up) and I think they came by with extra water and juices at least six times. Two hot meals of delicious food, superb snacks available near the galley, and comfortable seats with better than average legroom."
Cons: "Can't think of anything except the length of the flight which can't be helped."
Pros: "there was no entertainment - but it was a very short flight. Food was ok, service was great"
Cons: "Seat not that comfortable"
Pros: "Given free upgrade. Efficient services."
Cons: "I never took this flight."
Cons: "Missed my conection flight I wil not recomend air canada or british airlines for anyone"
Pros: "Crew was nice. No water or basic beverage service"
Cons: "Water or basic beverage service"
Cons: "Gate agent talked me into checking a piece of luggage. Lost 3 pieces of luggage for 2 days. Plane was late so very stressful making our connection. Had to run thru Heathrow."
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly crew, good food"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Cons: "Flight cancelled and we will miss Christmas Eve Dinner"
Pros: "Spacious not over crowded smooth flight British Airways was great! Very attentive flight attendants."
Cons: "Chicago O'Hare was a mess as far as making connections. There was no signage and the airport attendants did not offer any assistance."
Cons: "It was a two hour flight, we did not get the opportunity to buy a drink and food until an hour and forty minutes into the flight. This is not acceptable."
Pros: "The crew did their best to minimize delay"
Cons: "Flight delayed, arrival very late night. No snacks, drinks , only to purchase. Like a low cost airline"
Cons: "No free water on the flight. I was not able to use my USA credit card. Water is essential during flights!!!! I got sick on the pain from headaches!!!!!! Water should be a basic, free thing to served on a plain."
Cons: "there's no screen. hence there's no chance of entertainment. a cup of water or just a juice box should be free/standard."
Pros: "Crew was extremely nice"
Cons: "Felt packed in like a tin of sardines. Extremely uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "On a flight to Budapest, budapest airport had issues that forced us to land in Austria. 5 hours later we’ve been completely abandoned in an empty airport while all the other planes that landed paid for their customers transport. It’s 4am, we have not been given food water or a plan as to how we will get to our destination. The plane crew basically told us we are on our own and left. This is straight up cruel, unjust and completely unacceptable considering we paid more than 2000 dollars for these flights"
Pros: "They arrived a few minutes earlier than expected."
Cons: "Entertainment system is very old and the flight is also very old."
Cons: "carry-on not allowed on board"
Pros: "Good leg room, good service from staff and left early"
Cons: "Did not have food so can't comment but tea was cold, however cabin crew more than happy to change it. no other negatives to think of"
Pros: "Wonderful service ....i like everything"
Cons: "Everything was okay"
Pros: "It was a very typical short hop flight"
Pros: "Fsst board to front of plane."
Pros: "Great service, easy travel from Heathrow Terminal 5."
Cons: "Shame the complimentary drinks have gone, sign of the economic times."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I understand that airlines want to cut back where ever they can, but I have a hard time believing that you cannot swing a bottle of water and a sandwich. Oh BTW beware of their new “security” regulations. So I had a bottle of perfume in my carry on, only about a quarter maybe a third left in a 100 ml bottle. Guess what, it is not the amount of liquid you have in it, it is the amount the bottle can hold that matters. Needless to say they confiscated it."
Pros: "Friendly crew once you’re on the plane."
Cons: "Two flights canceled due to weather - that’s understandable. The website, app, twitter help, and phone numbers not working for info or to rebook = unacceptable. Seats in premium economy are cramped and tight."
Cons: "You never gave me the opportunity to pick my seat and I was given a window seat over and back with 2 fat pigs next to me. What the hell were you thinking. You baggage personnel stole the gifts We purchased for our grandchildren in the Baltimore airport terminal baggage area. Where was TSA security?"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Charging for food and drink? What is BA, three times the price of RyanAir and the same food service. Unbelieveable."
Cons: "Only card why?? No free food??"
Pros: "The flight attendants are very helpful and accommodating. Even the food was good! Took a pic of my meal and wanted to ask for seconds!"
Cons: "Couldn't get overhead light to shut off."
Cons: "Even coffee was not complimentary"
Pros: "I loved the on-demand entertainment which starts as soon as you board the plane and continues all the way into landing / taxing to the gate."
Cons: "The system would not allow me to check-in / get my boarding passes 24 hrs prior to barding, which basically left me with a middle seat all the way to Seattle. I considered this a terrible process and didn't get a good explanation why I was blocked from doing my check-in online."
Cons: "Corralling people into shopping area by not disclosing gate assignment. Then corralling people into a boarding area where there is no access to bathroom facilities. Then boarding without any order except for some privileged passengers (first class, club members). Finally,not serving any soft drink or little snacks unless you pay for some overpriced stuff. This is a sure way to drive passengers away from BA towards no-frills discount airlines."
Cons: "Asked for water when they were selling beverages, and was told sharply "not yet". Flight attendants did not make eye contact and never return for us or other passengers around us."
Pros: "Excellent crew, great food and on time departure/arrival"
Cons: "I had the misfortune of sitting with an extremely rude and offensive passenger. He was verbally abusive on more than one occasion. Was extremely rude to crew. 747-400 lovely but very tired interior now....I know that these aircraft will be phased out, so not much can be done in the interim"
Pros: "Pilot was communicative about flight delay."
Cons: "The food service never made it to our row. Not even water was offered on a two hour flight."
Cons: "for the price I paid the service did not offer complimentary food or even water or soda."
Pros: "Replacement flight was fine"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I was not automatically re-booked, luggage lost and not delivered despite repeated effort to reclaim it. Aer Lingus hold time on the phone was over an hour and attendants were unhelpful (said my flight wasn't cancelled in their system even though I received an email that it was - which ended up being true)"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time, although flight was fully booked, boarding was quick."
Cons: "Nothing, flights to Frankfurt have always gone off on time for me."
Cons: "I can not comment yet, it will be unfortunately several hours before I take this leg of my trip"
Pros: "The seat I had was good"
Cons: "No food, no drinks. They asked me to pay even for water. After a very long trans Atlantic flight, this being a connecting flight after a long a tired 11 hours layover in London. It is an embarrassing how the airline cares (or doesn't care) who travels with them, where the people are coming from so they can understand their needs. I don't think it would had make a difference to the airline if they would acknowledge connecting passengers and eventually try to make their experience a little easier. But asking for a glass of water and not getting any is an embarrassing experience for this airline. I will never fly with British if I can."
Pros: "Once you get to the plane the service is incredible. The planes are comfortable and the food is worth paying for."
Pros: "The plane is a newer one than what they are flying across the Atlantic and the seats were decent for the length of the flight. The crew were very nice and gave us tap water to drink for free."
Cons: "They don't offer any free food or drink, not even water. The boarding process was slow and laborious as they were making people check their carryon bags as they were checking the boarding passes."
Cons: "no complimentary water and coffee and more."
Pros: "Politeness, precision, correctness."
Cons: "It was a little bit hard to understand the words of the pilots because of the noise."
Pros: "Left/arrived on time"
Pros: "On our flight to New York, the food was not bad at all, on our flight FROM New York, I have never even smelled anything so terrible, let alone attempted to put it to my mouth. The attendants were nice and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "The headrest have me a neck spasm that has lasted for over a week and the leg room was absolutely atrocious. I am a 5'9" female and I couldn't get comfortable. I can't even imagine how a tall man would be accommodated in those tiny little excuses for leg room. P.S. Don't eat the couscous."
Pros: "The pilot was very great, on time, and the crew was accommodating."
Cons: "We left on a flight from London over 12 hours later."
Pros: "the crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "old plane uncomfortably seats no personal IFE"
Pros: "My flight was delayed on my way out, but the service was really great. The flight I made it onto was fairly empty and the flight attendants encouraged people who were sitting in a packed row to spread out. It was truly a great experience."
Cons: "The food was not very good. I wish I had gotten the vegetarian option with the sliced apples. Also, the smell on the plane was not very good. Need a light scented lavender air freshener that also kills germs. Or something with a very faint scent to clean the air."
Pros: "Same experience as always. Consistent"
Cons: "There was no entertainment or food provided"
Pros: "In flight service and food were excellent"
Cons: "My TV monitor didn't work. Crew couldn't get video on demand to reset."
Cons: "We were put in seats behind each other instead of next to one another. No in flight entertainment."
Pros: "I wasn’t even allowed to board because of their huge lack of knowledge And misscommunication"
Cons: "I wasn’t even allowed to board because of their huge lack of knowledge And misscommunication"
Pros: "Seat super uncomfortable"
Cons: "I wasn't on this flight. I wasn't able to cancel or refund it."
Cons: "First of all, we've had to pay registration fee 55 Euros each, just because we didn't check in online! What the hell is that? Secondly, the seats that I paid for were not available! Lousy service..."
Cons: "Need to reduce waiting hours at gate"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "As always delay and on buda airport pretty chaos during off board but not due ryanair staff but wrong airport organization"
Pros: "Nothing. Wiorst flight ever!"
Cons: "Ryan air has a paid checkin policy that we were not aware of. It was not written properly in the tickets or in any checkin prompts. Since we were traveling I couldn’t check in online. So reached the airport very early but they charged me to check in, that too a ridiculous amount of 100$. The crew was generally rude and non welcoming. The aircraft stops at the middle-of the airport in Budapest and we had to walk a very long stretch to get to the airport in the cold since the plane was not connected to a gate. For sone confusion they stopped boarding in the middle and passengers had to stand in the freezing cold , outside the aircraft , in the middle of the airport for a very long time. Hated the flight. Charges you for every single think you can think and not think off. Every passenger seemed frustrated"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Chose priority boarding, waste of time so did everyone else. Long queues to board."
Pros: "Friendliness of crew."
Pros: "Nice crew and helpful check in person."
Cons: "We waited outside in the heat for 35 minutes. Insane! How is that a “priority” experience?! We were all drenched in sweat before take off?! Horrible!"
Cons: "Be careful with the bag. They didn't accept my carry on despite I paid for it, saying it was to big. When trying to pay they told me that only with EUROS. Didn't accept neither my credit cards (they accept only Europe issued CC) not USD. I couldn't retrieve money from an ATM either."
Pros: "- very kind and professional crew"
Cons: "- boarding was late - did not get actual notice that plane IS GOING to be slightly delayed (only email that it MIGHT happen)"
Pros: "We landed without dying."
Cons: "To start off with there was only ONE person checking people in before the flight, so it took forever. Then the guy at check-in told us we were already supposed to have our boarding passes printed out and that he was not able to print them for us. Basically, it was a "figure it out for yourself" sort of situation. We went to another counter, not even directly associated with Ryan, and a very nice gentleman there printed our passes for us. He also seemed really confused as to why the Ryan Air employee wouldn't print them for us. Then, we weren't given a gate assignment until 20 mintues before the time we were supposed to board. How do you expect your customers to be prepared if you can't even tell them where they are supposed to go until the last minute? Then they made us board a bus to take us to the plane on the tarmac which was not a big deal. But they made us stand on the bus for 20+ mintues before they took us over to the plan. The bus was completely full, so it's not like they were waiting to load more passengers. The doors to the bus were open, so it was freezing cold (our flight was late at night) and we were forced to breath in exhaust fumes from the bus the entire time! The flight was also an hour delayed!!! I know it's a super cheap ticket, but do yourself a favor and spend a little more money to fly on an airline that actually knows what they're doing. This is my first and most definitely LAST time flying on Ryan Air. If I could give zero stars, I would."
Pros: "Hubo una persona discapacitada a la se necesitaba ayuda. Y le dijeron prioridad para sentarse primero en su silla del avión. Entonces las azafatas inmediatamente dejaron pasar los pasajeros creando así un bloqueo en medio del avión que tomó mucho tiempo."
Cons: "La comida estuvo bien. El servicio a la silla fue rapido.. Aunque los precios no son los mas económicos"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over two hours, but there was no reason given and we were left waiting with no idea what was going on."
Pros: "This flight issues were so plentiful they provided me with knowledge on how not to run an airline."
Cons: "5 X delays, Incompetent pilot, No organisation of ground crew 2.5hr late"
Pros: "We made it."
Cons: "Boarding was very slow. Had to take a bus to the plane, not even water to drink."
Cons: "The flight was two hours delayed"
Pros: "On time no problem"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Got home."
Cons: "They managed to mangle the queuing in the terminal, getting everybody on theit feet and I need the queue 20 minutes before boarding started and then have us standing in a queue on the stairs for ten minutes. The flight was delayed an hour or so, and pass Nebraska then asked to take their seats quickly as if they had caused the delay. The crew were tired but polite. Standard Ryanair fight, really, run for the airline’s convenience rather than the passengers’ comfort."
Pros: "Staffs are very helpful."
Cons: "Should get some drink at least some water."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable seats that do not recline. Inattentive flight attendants. Poor beverage service, like they were trains to offer nothing unless you tackled a flight attendant as she raced by. Packed transit tram to plane: priority peopleeaitedin the idling tram while everyone for the flight came down. Never again! Price or not!"
Pros: "Yes on time."
Cons: "When check in took place we were kept in a dark,cold,wet & windy covered area for about 10/15 minutes before being allowed to board the plane. This is really unacceptable in this day & age."
Pros: "Fair service for the amount spent"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The cabin crew"
Cons: "Budapest airport"
Cons: "Bad pilots, lending very harch. Bording paniking"
Pros: "Upright seats give more legroom"
Cons: "Queue, queue, queue Hugely confused luggage allowances - unclear even on boarding pass - urgently need overhaul and clarification"
Pros: "Boarded from gate beside the executive lounge."
Cons: "Slowly boarding, gate is cold, no seats, plane was in late 1,5 hour."
Cons: "Ground staff made final boarding call too soon. Had to rush from the lounge only to find no passengers had left the terminal steps to walk to the plane to board."
Pros: "Flight to Budapest from Stansted airport took off on time and landed 40 minutes early. The flight home was on schedule and I had an aisle seat both ways, couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "Due to the high volume of passengers on the flight we had to put our luggage in the hold (for free) in both directions which caused a minor delay in our onward journey but nothing significant."
Pros: "I liked that we received an alert mail from them several days in advance telling us to check in and pay for our checked luggage. Bags paid for in advance were reasonably priced."
Cons: "Clerk could not print boarding passes at the airport check in counter. Four clerks at check in counter, but only one could check in passengers for our flight. Long, outside walk from the plane to the terminal in Budapest."
Cons: "I realized I made a mistake it’s my date five minutes after my booking . There was no options all to do any changes"
Cons: "all the extra charges... late take off not being able to get the seat desired general nervousness due to low level of confidence in the company"
Cons: "It got 1 hour delayed and they warn after everyone was standing in line ready to board"
Cons: "An obnoxious hen party disrupted our enjoyment of the flight. Cabin crew didn't try to control them"
Pros: "Price is good"
Cons: "Called to gate only to then have to wait over an hour before boarding. No info given just stood there like lemons. Also they do their upmost to make you pay to sit next to each other! I know they are trying to make as much profit as poss but just annoying."
Pros: "Lots of interEuropean routes."
Cons: "Online check-in is mandatory but unless I'd checked online I would not have known and been charged £50 at the airport counter during bag drop. This is an unethical cash machine for Ryanair that penalises travellers who might not be computer literate or online - a big brand turnoff."
Cons: "Due to a technical problem of the aircraft a site inspection was needed. - While waiting, the lead flight attendent, Anikó was chit-chatting in Hungarian with some passengers, sharing different information in an unacceptable, non-professional manner (how often and why Ryanair flights are delayed, how passengers act in such cases, she only had 2h sleep the previous night, etc). A disgrace both for the airline and her profession!"
Cons: "Everything, firstly I checked in early as recommended to find that my wife and I were not sat together. It gave me the option to change one of our seats, stating that it would only increase in cost if we select a more expensive seat. It turns out there were more free seats than reserved but to sit next to my wife (without changing hers) it was going to cost £10, no idea why as they hadn't selected her a more expensive seat. Guess what.....the exact same happened when checking in on our return journey, can't wait to board the plane in a couple of days! When arriving at the airport it is clear Ryanair are removing staff to keep cost down with no care for passenger satisfaction, you check your bags in automatically which appears a scam for over weighing your cases and charging you without having to speak to you. It coat us £10 for being over a kilo, we didn't believe we were but paid it as we thought we had no choice because no staff were close by. A couple beside us were supposedly 3 kilos over and believed this to be incorrect, they kicked off enough of a fuss to be able to go check in face to face and not pay a single penny, doesn't quite seem fair? The final nail in the coffin was the fact that at 8.45 (our supposed departure time) we were stuck in a huge queue watching people get off the plane we were due to board. No delays or hold ups had been announced yet we should have been boarding at 8.15 and told to go to our gate as normal for this time. No plain in sight and when it arrives we can't go straight on as people are getting off it! All in all Ryanair have been awful so far and I am dreading our flight home!"
Pros: "I liked the new interior of the plane - lot more room, easier to move between seats, easier to place luggage"
Cons: "The crew did everything necessary, but they did not smile, their communication was not spontaneous and a bit "robot" like. This was in in contrast to the crew on our first flight to Brussels - the crew there was cheerful and fun to travel with."
Cons: "We stood in line for almost 40 minutes with no signs or help from anyone. Finally got to the desk and we were told we Needed to have boarding passes so we needed tonsee customer service. Stood in line for 30 minutes to have the customer service guy charge us to print out boarding passes and that we hadn't checked in. Then sent us back to check boarding passes only to find out we didn't pay for checked luggage. All in all, we arrived 2 hours early only to pay twice as much as our original tickets and barely make our flight. Do your selves a favor and pay the more expensive route, because the cheap tickets were not even remotely worth the hassle."
Pros: "Boarding was reasonably slick. Staff were very polite and helpful. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Disembarking was aWful. Flight was packed and the buses from landing site to airport entry were rammed. At least 6 passengers left standing outside the bus for a good 10 minutes with indecisive ground crew pacing, staring and disappearing with no solution until a senior member arrived and squeezed people into the driver's cabin. Seat space is pretty tight. Not the most comfortable. Not a fan of trekking to Stanstead but it was earliest flight so no option but Ryanair"
Cons: "I did not like not knowing which gate was being used until 45 minutes prior to boarding. People who are regulars were able to queue up before those of us who did not know where we were heading. The baggage information is confusing; you can not be sure whether or not your bag will get on without a charge, but then when you get to the airport, the charge is greater than it would have been if you had more consisten info to start."
Cons: "I was told "if you wanted to take a cabin bag in the cabin, then you should have flown with British Airways""
Cons: "I tried to check in on line but because of their website was unable to. So we were charged 45 euro each for a boarding pass. That is unacceptable. I would not recommend this airline."
