Cons: "Maybe just change the quiche. Very dry"
Pros: "The food was great and the other flight attendants were kind and understanding."
Cons: "There was a flight attendant who was of an older demographic who was extremely rude to me and not accommodating at all to myself, my husband, or my children. She had an attitude and seemed irritated by my questions, concerns, and overall being there. We had an issue with seating and no seats together with our 4 and 7 year old."
Pros: "Lots of room on the flight, fresh warm bread, lots of water, nice cabin crew"
Cons: "How do I book a vegetarian meal??"
Pros: "The food was great and the crew was very friendly."
Pros: "The seat was ok, I paid $ 115 per Trip ( total of $ 230) just to sit at the emergency exit to have some leg room and then I am sitting next to the bathroom and people stepping on my feet because they tend to hang out around the bathroom."
Cons: "The flight attendant not wearing perfume. Food was very poor to say the least."
Cons: "Lost our bags"
Pros: "Very kind crew. Great food. Nice leg room even for economy."
Cons: "This was one of the most empty flights I’ve ever been on. With that, lots of room for carry on baggage. I fail to see why it was necessary at all. It delayed my journey when time was of the essence."

Pros: "Nice self boarding"
Cons: "No big screen to communicate priority to boarding since I am deaf."
Pros: "The Boeing 777-300ER is ether new and clean."
Cons: "Seating was super tight. Once the person in front of me declined their seat the screen of the inflight entertainment system was right in front of my nose (no, my nose is not particularly long). I’ll consider flying Lufthansa or United next time - even if It required a stopover in Frankfurt or Munich."
Pros: "The food was quite good and the crew was perfectly friendly. The entertainment choices were useful on such a long flight."
Cons: "It was extremely warm on the flight; consequently, I was unable to sleep. This was my second overly warm Swiss Air flight. After numerous complaints on the first flight, the temperature was lowered, but the second flight remained warm."
Cons: "I chose my seat online and when I got to the gate they changed my seat to the way back of the plane"

Pros: "Liked the flight arrangements as convenient. Although left Zurich little bit late, made up time as OK. Thanks for the great experience in using your services."
Cons: "Seating room is very tight, especially for someone who is over 6 feet tall. Wished I alerted Swiss Air in desire to have exit row seats."
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "After almost completely adapting to the spartan amenities of US domestic airlines, my recent SWISS flight had a too-good-to-be-true quality that rendered my travel companion and I giddy with delight. My dinner (one of three food services) consisted of chicken, potatoes, steamed broccoli, salad, a dinner roll with butter, gruyere, and a strawberry tart... included cream and sugar signaled an inevitable coffee service. This was accompanied by complimentary wine and sparkling water, and heavy-weight stainless cutlery. The seat reclination was good, and the in-flight entertainment was a cut above. Coming off many Frontier flights with pay-for-beverage service, no leg-room, and un-reclining seats, it was about as good as coach can get. I'm actually looking at SWISS routes first before I plan my next vacation."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Paying for WiFi."
Pros: "Arrived safe"
Cons: "Packed in like sardines on an overnight flight. Awful food. Cheap fair seemed like a bargain until you find out that you have to pay an extra charge for the dubious privilege of reserving a seat way back in the 34th row."
Pros: "Comfortable flight."
Pros: "Wonderful flight with less leg room . Since I am 5’6’m I was fit enough on the seats, beyond that you should be worried about"
Cons: "Flight attendant, food , service and many good things except the leg room which you regret in your entire journey"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I ordered a kosher meal and did not get it. The seats are very uncofmfortable. When the one in front puts their seat back it goes almost in to the face of the one behind."
Pros: "The next best thing to the hard-working and kind crew was the lighting design. Meals were OK, and I was delighted that the vegan meals I ordered for my travel companion were right there as ordered. Not a common occurrence of late, I’m afraid, so I congratulate Swiss one getting this one right."
Cons: "Legroom is non-existent. This was by far the most uncomfortable aircraft I have ever flown on, with the possible exception of an Ilyushin 62 operated by Tarom in 1983. I felt bad for the man in front of me, with my knees in his back. That is, until he reclined his seat and put my video screen in my face. Not much to watch anyway, but it was impossible to lean forward at all. Boarding at JFK was rather chaotic."
Pros: "good entertainment system, modern aircraft , friendly and competent crew"
Pros: "Professional crew"
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: "Crew and people were fantastic!"
Cons: "LONG lines again. No luggage even with a 4 hour layover"
Pros: "The chocolate"
Cons: "The entertainment system in the main part of the plane was not working luckily I had a good book otherwise I would have been very upset."
Pros: "Food great!"
Cons: "Limited space , very narrow and not very clean. I seated next to a dog, pet. The whole trip the dog was sitting on the floor next to me:(, although it was a very quiet and good dog. Crew not very friendly . They were tired I believe ."
Pros: "It was quick and the crew was really nice!"
Cons: "No organization for boarding. It didn't matter what class you are in, everyone boards at the same time. business class o. The plane we were on was just the front seats....they were not larger seats."
Pros: "entertainment was fine"
Pros: "Enjoyed the service."
Cons: "You charge the ticket and my reservation wasn't there!!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, very hard. The cabin was cold and there was no possibility to adjust blowers. Old entertainment sets with poor variety of choices to watch."
Pros: "Comfort of the flight ,very friendly staff"
Pros: "The whole trip was handled extremely well. First time we've done 12 hrs straight in the air. They made the experience seem like it was much less. Will fly that airline again."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "I paid extra for seat selections and then they did not give me those seats."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful with getting me "something" to eat since I did not receive a "Vegan" meal as I had ordered when I bought the flight... The meal I originally was given was included milk and cheese ingredients and after explaining what vegan actually was they did their best to help my situation. My first flight with Swiss to Switzerland included the correct "vegan" meal do I can't understand how this mistake was made by Swiss on the return flight?"
Cons: "I did not receive a "vegan" meal as ordered originally and though they were very helpful they should all be better educated regarding the differences between "Vegan", Vegetsrian, Lacto-Ovo, etc... Since I was embarrassed as I had to keep rejecting the food they gave me until I educated them on the basics of what Vegan food is... They were very helpful throughout."
Cons: "the new Boeing 777 is horrible... no space and small seats >> my feet were swollen, everything hurts the inflight- entertainment is integrated in the front seat, you can`t change screen if you are blinded as i wrote to the service center to change the seats (july 21st) i still have no answer on my mail.... service???? no more again..."
Pros: "Lots of snack service and real dinner's! So much yummm"
Cons: "Boarding was kinda weird and confusing."
Cons: "Allow business passenger to use front bathroom."
Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."
Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."
Cons: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"

Cons: "Inflight was better than I expected. But needs upgrading air crafts."
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Pros: "The entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."
Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"
Pros: "The crew were hardworking, responsive, conscientious and friendly"
Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."
Pros: ".Very much on time with pleasant service."
Cons: "Can nit find much fault fir a short run!"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and professional. Promp response to calling for attention."
Cons: "Wish there was better lumbar support for the seats. The food could be a bit more exciting with simple addition of lime pickles. Overall can not complain for economy standard!"
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."
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: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
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"
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."
Cons: "Stranded for 48 hours in Africa. Missed 3 flights due to complete incompetence, truly a horrible experience."
Pros: "Food was relatively good"
Cons: "We had ourtrip from San Francisco to Amsterdam which is one of the longest flights ever, andthe entertainment system wasnt working, we kept on telling them several times but nothing happened and at the end they wereeven avoiding us. By the end of the trip when we were approaching Ams, a hostess came and she gave us a $25 dollar discountvoucher to be used in our next trip, this is totally not acceptable!"
Pros: "early arrival,comfort"
Cons: "late boarding while standing around waiting for pilot to ararive"
Pros: "Staff was excellent. Entertainment options pretty good."
Cons: "Seems very dated. Business Class felt cramped and not very luxurious."
Cons: "KLM sent us to Kiev thru Stambul (Turkey). We have spent 8 hours more on flights."
Pros: "Comfortable, good food and good crew"
Cons: "Flight was late due to earlier mechanical error. These things happen but still annoying when they do. Crew didn’t seem too bothered."
Cons: "Check in slow."
Cons: "Many people missed their connection at Dublin. I had a horrible ~6hr wait. Aer Lingus did nothing to help or compensate."
Cons: "Best flight I have ever been on"
Pros: "Hostess were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat in first row and my bag half way down the plane so although I could’ve been first off I was in actual effect the very last."
Pros: "Plane was only 65/70 full"
Pros: "The crew are the friendliest, nicest crew. I’ve flown Iberia and JetBlue the past year and the Aer Lingus crew are so much more hospitable and service oriented. From cockpit announcements keeping passengers up to date on flight info, to food service, the crew does an excellent job."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was too chaotic. There seemed to be a lot of confusion. They were boarding rows 8-23 but no one was getting through the gate to the plane. Before anyone from this group got on the plane, they added rows 24-46. Ambiguity causes stress. A more orderly lining up of passengers would be less stressful."
Pros: "The crew kept serving for ages when some ladies urgently needed to go to the toilet! The staff told them to wait and wait 5/6 minutes they did!&"
Pros: "My mother uses a wheelchair and the service for her was outstanding"
Pros: "Very kind, knowledgeable personnel!"
Pros: "Plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Plane arrived late - no updates from the gate crew. ...coffee and soda is not free..."
Pros: "Basic flight to Dublin"
Cons: "Not enough water"
Cons: "Paying for inflight drinks. All US airlines provide FREE complimentary drinks and snacks. Seemed in poor taste to charge for such things made the airlines appear cheap."
Pros: "I made it on the plane because they decided to delay the fight for the ones of us that almost missed our flight so to the flight from Dublin being late."
Cons: "The Food!"
Pros: "Crew remained civil under duress"
Cons: "Flight delays going over and coming back"
Pros: "Aer Lingus does a fantastic job with everything. They are fast and efficient and super hospitable."
Cons: "I always wish I had a bit more room."
Pros: "Movie selection and availability"
Cons: "Boarding was late Water was offered only at the beginning"
Cons: "The boarding and deplaning was awful'"
Pros: "Quick Boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Everything else! No entertainment. Charged you for everything! Water! Coffee which was instant, not even brewed. Plane was older than dirt. Worn interior."
Pros: "Crew was responsive and kind if something was requested but service without asking is no longer part of a transatlantic experience."
Cons: "If you're on the Airbus transatlantic flight, the last section nis so noisy I'm surprised it's even a legal noise level. You can't even hear the entertainment it's so loud. Had to buy an upgraded economy just to be able to endure the long flight. It would be nice to see the cart come through again for coffee refill service."
Pros: "Passengers were spread out. Empty seat between each of us"
Cons: "I am tall and I find the rows too close to eachother"
Pros: "We had lots of seat space because the flight wasn't full and we could spread out a bit. If the plane hadn't been full, the seats and leg room space were insufficient. The food was good. The on board entertainment was enjoyable, making the time go by quicker."
Cons: "We weren't able to select our seats, they were selected for us. We also couldn't print out our Boarding Passes until we arrived at the airport giving us an uneasy feeling about the seats we would be assigned. Ultimately, our seat assignments were fine, but no need for the drama."
Cons: "Flight delayed by a day. No reasonable efforts to get us there through another airline."
Pros: "The boarding was very efficient and overall the staff was very nice."
Cons: "Seat reclining are horrible. No space to eat, read or enjoy the entertainment. Seat cushioning not existent, and food quality is poor."
Pros: "Loaded plane back to front. Organized."
Cons: "Hard seats."
Pros: "everything was good as usual"
Cons: "check-in desk couldn't check me through to my connecting flight with Virgin Atlantic so I had 15mins once landed in Heathrow to get through passport security and checkin at Virgin Atlantic desk.... I'm young and fit so was able for the dash but elderly or familys would not have made the connecting flight in that time"
Pros: "Short and sweet but a very comfortable ride."
Pros: "seat near handicap toilet"
Cons: "Nowhere to lift my foot on entire flight"
Cons: "Custom made bike box erroneously classified oversized, but they didn't charge for it so ok"
Pros: "Crew, speed, ease of security at Cork"
Cons: "The lady in 1C who turned her phone on as soon as we hit the British coast"
Pros: "Nice stewards."
Cons: "Terrible bag handling and passenger experience management wrote to airline 3 times and no response. Was without luggage for a week with no offer of assistance."
Pros: "Speed of boarding from both the gate crew and the cabin staff. At that hour of the morning the last thing you want is hassle when boarding."
Cons: "It's a very very early morning flight."
Pros: "Punctual and on time"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Loved being on a flight for holiday, and knowing I wasn't being overcharged for needless frills."
Cons: "I don't remember if they served a drink, I know things were for sale. But that seems to be the European way."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. I was seated quickly and the flight took off on time. No complaints."
Pros: "Wonderful, attentive crew, clean, comfortable seating, enough leg room for even a long limbed person. This was economy class!"
Cons: "Not much to say here. It was a great experience. My video screen only worked if it was just at the proper angle and the free earbuds have an horrible sound quality. I had my own...not an issue. Fly Aer Lingus"
Pros: "Crew was nice, food was good enough, having movies passed the time."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and space was tighter than on other flights. It was hard to manage limited movement and cramped knees for such a long flight."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Food is very good . take off and landing Is excellent"
Cons: "Crew attitude was not comforting for the delays!!"
Pros: "Food, movies, snacks"
Pros: "I will say the Airline seems to run a very professional operation."
Cons: "They NEVER transferred my luggage to my final destination. We spent four days in Dublin without our luggage. Aer Lingus still is looking for it according to their web site. We found it here in Fort Lauderdale right where we departed from. As one can imagine, it makes for a terrible trip when your missing your things. Especially warm clothes..."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Having to use steps at Cork airport . The cost of tea served in a disposable cup is too expensive."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarking was very badly controlled"
Pros: "Seats were overall comfortable, though the plane's upholstery was showing its age."
Cons: "We had to pay for refreshments on the European flights."
Pros: "The seats were much more comfortable then my last flight. The entertainment system was also updated from the 1980’s remote and cord ones on my flight from DC to Paris."
Cons: "There was no food between the two meals on an 8 hour flight. I had a flight attendant rudely tell me that there is nothing to offer until the next meal. No one reached out to me about the horrible flight and comments I made from the last flight."
Cons: "Short and sweet"
Cons: "This airline charges for everything, and after you pay once, they try to charge you again, and again, and again (four different people tried to charge me 4 different times for my two checked bags). And they lost the record of my payment, so I had to show 4 times the Amex receipt showing that I had paid before. It took 45 minutes and 4 non receptive agents for me to get my luggage checked. British Airways is significantly better."
Cons: "I was catching a flight in Paris to Aberdeen after arriving from Malaga. The time between flights was not enough 55 mins as the gate closed 20 mins before departure and it takes at least 15 minutes from arrival to taxi to the terminal and then get off the plane. I had to change from terminal F to E which was well sign posted but I only made it with 4 minutes to spare"
Cons: "tout est à revoir !"
Pros: "Perfectly on time, no hassle, seat OK. This is the way I appreciate a flight."
Cons: "Food. No choice, three "madeleine" (sweet) cookies for all, no sugar-free (salty) alternative..."
Pros: "Crew memebers"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable on Business Class. Service is good"
Cons: "Constant delays specially from CDG! Poor cabin service specially on this flight."
Cons: "Both flights through Detroit were re-routed, our luggage was lost for 4 days."
Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in. Because I had a connecting flight to New York in London, the check in caused many problems...and everything inside soaking wet"
Cons: "The craft is a bit old. Harsh landing."
Pros: "crew great comfortable"
Pros: "On time, no hassle."
Pros: "Multiple crew members paid constant helpful attention to my mother (88yrs of age) during boarding, deboarding and throughout the entire flight. Thank you!"
Pros: "Red wine was excellent"
Cons: "Bright lights on throughout flight, would have been nice to dim lights for late night flight so passengers could rest"
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!"
Cons: "After boarding began there was a backup after the gate en route to the plane. No explanation. The plane left an hour later than scheduled but seemed to arrive close to scheduled time."
Pros: "Crew was awesome!!"
Cons: "I paid extra for the seat, but there was a metal box under the seat in front of me that curtailed my ability to stow my carry bag, and my leg room. I am very diappointed that I paid above the normal seat charge as if there was a premium to this seat, but in reality it was a sb par seat."
Cons: "If you have to change planes and Paris is your middle person. Leave at least 2-3 in between the two flights otherwise you might not make it."
Pros: "Plane was new, and seatback screen responsive and functional."
Cons: "Economy seats not very comfortable, very tightly packed together"
Cons: "Not really an Air France flight, AF not interested in taking care of their frequent fliers."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the food was excellent."
Cons: "The fligh Washington delay more than a hour"
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and professional. The air hostesses regularly checked if I was ok and showed concern when I wasn’t. They made what seemed a bad situation seem bearable."
Cons: "The food was not very nice and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."
Cons: "Air France delayed our JFK to CDG flight. That caused us to miss our connection flight afterwards from CDG to MUC. We got a later flight luckily but one of our bags got lost and is still currently lost!!!"
Pros: "Short flight so I can't really complain. It was no frills, standard small aircraft with no high tech entertainment system. Seats were fairly comfortable"
Pros: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."
Cons: "I flew out on KLM on what felt like a new plane. Amazing service, seat, temperature, entertainment and food. In stark comparison Air France’s plane was old, too hot, poor entertainment choices and system and average food which for the French was surprising!"
Cons: "Engine noise in the cabin is loud."
Pros: "Flight crew, pilot,food and entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "The usual Air France flights to Rome, that I have been flying for years, are now operated by Joon. For a couple months nothing changed, except the way the crew dressed. But now Joon is showing its true nature as a LOW COST airline.Seats cramped. Snacks and apple juice are now available for purchase only."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good meal and entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding agent forced me to check in my carry-on even though the carry-on fit in the cage and fullfilled all the requirements. I specifically called Air France prior to the flight to make sure I won’t have any issues as my 1st flight was operated by Delta and I wanted to confirm the luggage requirements were the same. My carry-on weighted only 5 kilos. I was extremely upset the way I was treated w/ the boarding agent behind the counter in Prague. On the top of that, her and the supervisor were very rude to my mom as they told her she had an extra carry-on which wasn’t the case. She traveled w/ a small briefcase where her mask for sleep apnea was. This is not considered an additional carry-on. The boarding agent (Czech lady and her supervisor) were not only rude but obviously lacked knowledge as well. My carry-on suitcase would easily fit in the overhead bin plus there was plenty of space inside the plane as it the flight wasn’t completely full."
Pros: "More experienced, professional crew, better food and service."
Cons: "A screaming child for 8 hours (understood this is not their fault, but it did make the journey unpleasant). Old aircraft with small screens, no power etc."
Pros: "nice drink selection on board flights"
Cons: "My pregnant wife was downgraded from business to economy 20 minutes before departure because the airline made a mistake with the reservation for our puppy traveling in the cabin with us. If this were not enough, the airline also lost one of our bags so this week we have to file for compensation for both begin downgraded and for the contents of our 30 kilo bag which never made it to Ho Chi Minh. Air France was a complete and total disaster and I would strongly recommend all friends and colleagues to find alternative airlines for travel"
Cons: "Canceled flight—absolutely no notification. Convoluted rebooking in whcuhbhey lies to us about what flights we were actually on. Spent a couple hours at Delta rebooking our trip. Lost prepaid night at hotel and dinner eaecatuon plus day of vacation."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Worse food I ever had on a flight ( a small bowl of lentils and some bread) Movie selection was poor, although not a big deal"
Cons: "Airplane really old. Cabin configuration economy was in front of economy plus. Just 1 bathroom for economy and economy plus. Economy plus seats old and uncunfuttable ( more than it should be )"
Pros: "Offering a drink on such a short flight is appreciated albeit unusual these days. Crew was very professional and friendly."
Pros: "I would like to come on time each trip because I got two late time before with airfrance"
Pros: "The cheese and the bread"
Cons: "The unprofessional staff during boarding and food serving"
Pros: "The crew was good and very good pilot's"
Cons: "No leg room between seats"
Pros: "Seat comfort in business class Professional and friendly crew"
Cons: "Food not tasty Limited entertainment even in business class (such small and old screen style) Newspapers available to be much more diversified When is the WiFi going to be available?"
Pros: "Option to upgrade seat which I didn't take but might for outbound red eye flight in future."
Cons: "Faulty toilet meaning longer queues for the loo. Crew were a bit haphazard in serving food and my row was missed out for coffee after dinner."
Pros: "The seats are spacious. They give you great amenities such as a toothbrush, etc. The crew was very nice. The food was also superb for airplane food."
Cons: "The check in process was terrible at SFO. We all felt like cattle being herded on. It was such a mess. The seats are surprisingly uncomfortable in premium economy. The headrest is not conducive to sleeping."
Cons: "Business Passngers have to wait in the same bus to board the flight what is the point then...."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pros: "The fact that the plane made it to SFO"
Cons: "Downgrade without notice or consent separating family. Paid full fare for family to travel business class together. AF without our knowledge downgraded one member, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. They offered no compensation, no apology, and CDG ground crew was terribly rude. All anyone said was, nothing to be done, now please Leave"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane late departing allegedly because of cleaning the plane, but why was the cleaning done that late? Also, ground crew remarkably uninformed about what was going on in the plane. Poor communication between plane and ground crew. No explanation from pilot as to continuing reason for delay even after we boarded. Departure time, 1.00 pm, boarded at 1.10, actual departure time 1.45, causing me to almost miss my connection and definitely causing my bags to miss the connection."
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "I feel comfortable flying when I can see out the window so don't force me to close my window shade.The flight attendants kept forcing me to close my shade. Also new planes would be nice. Sick of flying on outdated technology."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, but the sliding action, instead of recline, took getting used to. Food was very good. Snacks available on demand, along with drinks. Complimentary wine with meal was also quite good. Entertainment system was first rate with plenty of options for TV. movies, music, games, etc..."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle two seats in the center of the 777 left me stuck for most of the flight. Got up only once. Wife's feet and ankles were swollen by the end of the flight. Not enough legroom to move much during the flight and not enough aisle space to get around with the plane so full. Have made flights twice as long on the 747 and were able to get up and walk."
Cons: "Need to reduce waiting hours at gate"
Pros: "Shorter trip"
Cons: "The customer service at the check in booths people were extremely rude and not helpful! One of the worst experiences"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Chose priority boarding, waste of time so did everyone else. Long queues to board."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Very cramped Carry bag allowance too small"
Pros: "I got there nearly on time"
Cons: "65% of customers had priority so a bun fight to get on. We then tried to use the faster entry on non priority to get into the lounge and were sent back to the priority queue. families with kids weren't given the option of getting on first. Seats were incredibly uncomfortable. Lack of space for bags."
Pros: "that it wasn't a long flight"
Cons: "the crew weren't very friendly, from checking in to landing. too stressed out I think. I wasn't made to feel like I wanted to have a return booking. Also there was pressure to add extras that I didn't want. I resisted but when I've paid for something I don't expect to be coerced into paying more for something I didn't need. For example seat selection."
Pros: "Some of the staff were nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed four hours, and while that happens sometimes, what really upset me was the compete lack of help and competence from the staff. It seemed to me nobody knew what to do or what was going on. I tried to talk to three different desks and the cabin crew and nobody could help at all."
Pros: "On time and quick boarding, arrived before schedule and no issues with flight"
Cons: "Some passengers very noisy and shouting throughout flight but not the airlines fault"
Pros: "No hassle"
Cons: "Airport security"
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"
Cons: "Lack of comunicoation and lack of services. Probably it was a bit cheaper than the competitors. But I made me think twice for next time Ryanair cross my way."
Cons: "Terrible time checking in on line .Finally got some help but was told if I did not check in on line it would cost me another 55euros. :0("
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."
Cons: "We booked our daughter priority so she was entitled to bring a hand carry on board. When she got the airport they insisted that she had to put her hand carry in the hold despite it having her passport in it!! The Captain very kindly helped her retrieve it from the hold at the end of the flight but why did she ever have to put it in there when she was priority and we paid for it?"
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."
Cons: "you sent the us the wrong us the bookings the wrong way round malaga to newcastle 10th of march instead of the other way rounding the same on the return flight newcastle to malaga 17th march .hence had to rebook costing us a fortune.!!!"
Pros: "Staff good and flight on time"
Cons: "Cost of on board services"
Pros: "Boarding and flying time very good"
Cons: "Noisy passengers (stag party and 40birthday)"
Cons: "Delayed take off 20 minutes late from Cork, now at STN, we stuck on the plane because the ladder and stairs to get off the plane are not ready?????? Do we blame Ryanair???? Second time I have had this excuse while flying with them!!!! Maybe this is what you get when you fly with an airline who cut corners and costs?????"
Cons: "I was trying to check in in the past 24 hours. The system wouldn’t allow me and I ended up paying 50 Euros extra only to check in what I had already paid for in full in the first plCe. Then, just to top off the wonderful morning - I got an agent whose attitude was extremely rude and poor to inform me correctly what was the next steps and procedure. Finally, both my hand bags carry on get checked in and now I am stuck at the airport waiting for two little bags that could’ve easily got on top of my compartment where I was."
Pros: "Boarded from gate beside the executive lounge."
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: "That there was a possibility the plane crashed, so my flight would end earlier."
Pros: "No hitches. I recently bought proper cabin baggage with Ryanair approved dimensions and had checked in online so no hassles. If you follow Ryanair guidelines and have requested paperwork and baggage allowance your experience should be incident free."
Cons: "Nothing to declare."
Cons: "The Ryan Air staff were ignorant and complained when asked any questions."
Cons: "My connection at Stansted was very tight. Faced with long lines which could have mennt me missing my flight, I was five no option it to upgrade my ticket. Flight was also 20 minutes late."
Pros: "easy to check in with self-service check in and bag drop"
Cons: "seats are not particularly comfortable"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Seats are not comfortable. I was in a bus at the back and when it arrived at the demarcation door, the driver didn't open all the 3 doors! He only opened the front door beside himself so everyone had to exit by that door."
Cons: "Never got a heads up for boarding pass and baggage. I now know to pay $100.00 more when dealing with your competitors."
Pros: "Everything was acceptable apart from their petty ploy to split couples up"
Cons: "Because we don't want to pay extra for seating we don't check in until 4 days before the flight. Usually this is not a problem but on this flight they split us up, one at the front & one at the rear, then they ask if we want to pay extra to sit together. This is a very petty ploy to get extra money. It doesn't work !! The passengers just swop when on the plane"
Pros: "Crew when asked was very helpful and polite. They were definitely working the entire flight to assist people."
Cons: "Crew took about the entire flight to handle the food and drinks, coming from both ends. This caused a block to the bathrooms and people waiting long periods and finally just stuffing in all over the place to get passed the carts. Expensive flight for us since we had to buy the same day. While most of the security attendants were great, I did have to wait a very long time to get a pat down I requested rather than go through the scanner (required to be in a separate room) that was 95% the same as the one they were giving everyone after they came through the scanner, with the only difference being a hand and belt line swipe and paperwork. I have had this same procedure done in three airports prior on this trip and all were more aggressive/thorough and did not require a separate room and extreme wait. Though again, all the female staff were great."
Pros: "Everything was very good"
Cons: "An obnoxious hen party disrupted our enjoyment of the flight. Cabin crew didn't try to control them"
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't go"
Pros: "In flight experience was great."
Cons: "First time flying RyanAir and didn't checkin before arriving at airport. We're treated extremely rudely and charged Euro 100. Had priority boarding but boarding was horrible."
Pros: "Priority boarding that I paid for. Security Fast Track that I paid for."
Cons: "Interminable lines to simply drop bags with pre-paid bags and boarding passes printed at home -- It took an hour! Check-in staff seemingly oblivious to what is happening around them. About the most cramped seats on any airline I've taken (and I've flown in virtually all parts of the world, and I'm small). Constant harangue over the PA from in-flight staff trying to sell things, even lottery tickets."
Pros: "Price was ok if you don't have to check in luggage."
Cons: "Had to check on line to avoid a check in fee !!! Seats are crammed, thank God it was a short flight. Long line to check bags & to board"
Pros: "The air crew were excellent"
Cons: "Communications around boarding and gates was chaotic and our take off was delayed for over an hour. Staff were rude and unhelpful. They seemed confused themselves and found it difficult to communicate anything helpful to passengers"
Cons: "They took my cabin luggage to the cargo even though it is the right size due to no more space in over head compartment and I believe if they where strict about the size with the All Pax and only allowed one price each in the hand the compartments would have been sufficient. You need to make sure to ask pax to be at check in desk 2 hrs before dept during peak periods due to security takes longer time make the story short I was happy with the above all standards Abdullah Benafif."
Pros: "Boarding was ridiculous from both ends of plane with people from back end squeezing past people from front end to find their seats. They list my checked backpack on a flight from Amsterdam to Spain. It took 5 days to get it back. Crazy!"
Cons: "Everyone had backpacks that got checked for free. Why did I pay to check my luggage? Stupid."
Cons: "The priority boarding line needs to be separated from the regular boarding. There is a rush toward the gate when it ipens"
Cons: "They tell you to check in online, it is not possible, then they charge you an extra €45 at the airport. Second time it has happened, it's a scam. Last time I fly Ryanair."
Pros: "We had a very good and comfortable flight and were well looked after by the cabin crew,will be using company again well done."
Pros: "This company employs several rude employees which is unbelievable"
Cons: "It is unbelievable all of the "additional" fees that they conveniently forget to mention"
Cons: "I flew from Cork Ireland to PMI and unfortunately a large group of young adults boarded as well. They were drunk, obnoxious, adding around a bottle of alcohol singing loud songs over the announcements. The crew did not control them properly and even had to call the police upon landing. Poorly handled situation that made the rest of the passengers suffer through the appalling behavior."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "The plane was very dirty. The seat was blown out, no passing at all. The landing was like a car crash. I find Ryan Air has pilots at that can't land the plane smoothly. Never once on all the flights I've taken with them. You get what you pay for, that's what everyone says, right."
