Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "There was no food ..."
Pros: "My husband was on a business trip and his company booked him in business class. Economy was overbooked they cave me a free upgrade so I could sit with him!"
Cons: "Cost of extra bag. Also size limit for overhead carryon"
Pros: "This was my first and last time I will ever fly with Swiss airline-it’s been 4 days and I still didn’t receive my baggage and I had all my medicines in them,that’s including my carry on bag too,because it was taking from me @ the gate and I was told I will get it at my final destination,which I didn"
Cons: "I just would like to get my baggage- which is been 4 days since my arrival and they can’t even tell me where they are at!!!...."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly, pleasant and very helpful. Upon arrival in Delhi our suitcase handle was broken."
Pros: "The crew were personable and the chocolate that was offered near the end of the flight was a nice touch."
Cons: "Cramped, cramped, cramped!!!!! The seat pitch was just so uncomfortably short so much so that when the person in front of me reclined his seat, the TV screen was a mere 1-2 feet away from my face making it impossible to watch anything without getting crossed eyed or a headache. This unfortunate situation has influenced this review greatly particularly because this wasn’t a 2 hour flight but a long haul one."
Pros: "From start to finish, Sevdije was in great hands. She had to be in a wheelchair, and there were three connecting flights in countries where she doesn't speak the language. It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
Pros: "Left on time. Quick flight."
Pros: "Best trip ever, flight crew fantastic. Great hospitality from the crew, pleasant and very personable. Will definitely fly Swiss Air again."
Pros: "There wasn't much that stood out as likable. The food was pretty good."
Cons: "The plane was too hot. I asked multiple times throughout the flight for the temperature to be reduced, and it was not. I was wearing light jeans and a short sleeve shirt, and I was sweating all flight. Each time I asked throughout the duration of the flight, I was told it take a while for the temperature to decline. It's one thing to be uncomfortably warm on a flight; it's another thing when the flight crew lies to you. Further, I was not the only one to request that the temperature be reduced. This made an 11 hour flight particularly miserable."
Pros: "Very attentive staff, good food and drinks."
Cons: "We paid for upgraded seats that were still very tight."
Pros: "Clean airplane and toilets Many entertainment choice No turbulence"

Pros: "The seats in exit row were large enough for me to straighten my legs"
Cons: "Very rude attendants. Also if you sit in the exit row they don’t let you put ANYTHING on your lap or by your feet, even a sweatshirt that you remove for a moment. I have never had this problem on any other airline."
Pros: "All good with this 1:20 min flight."
Cons: "Everything was good. Seats much better and bigger comparing with international flight what should have been opposite - on longer flight - more comfortable seats than for the five times shorter flight."
Pros: "Service was minimal but sufficient, Food was good"
Cons: "Seats 23A, 23B were extra cramped on the B777-300ER, even though they are sold as "extra comfort"! due to the video screen taking space between the seats. The seats were so cramped that the overhead light kept coming on, unknowingly, when people shifted in their seats."

Pros: "It was a good short flight, with good service"
Pros: "good food, excellent entertainment selection"

Cons: "The fact that they made me check my carry on even though I was in first class. It fit in the plane on my first flight. Why wouldn't it fit on this plane!?"
Cons: "The security check point was frustrating. I was detained for :20 regarding my sealed duty free purchase.... Will not shop duty free again on a two-leg itinerary."

Pros: "It was nice to be given a 20 euro voucher for food and beverage, due to the 5 and a half hour flight delay."

Cons: "If you put the seats this close together, with the amount of recline. Once one person on the fligh reclines their seat it forces everyone else to do so. You can't eat if the person in front of you reclines!"
Pros: "Good product, excellent food, great and attentive service"
Cons: "Set quality for Business leaves much to be desired. Feels like sitting in Y with middle seat free."
Pros: "Everthing went as planned. Left on time. Cannot complain."
Pros: "Good seats - comfortable Attentive service"
Cons: "Found my business class seat given away to a lady with a dog. Mine was window but with extra table next to aisle. She had aisle seat but with exactly the same configuration. Idea was she would place the dog on the table space next to her seat. It would be exactly the same for both seats. Do not know what they were thinking. There were other business class seats on the other side that had the table space ext to the window away from the aisle. That would make sense for the lady with dog. Business class was full and I was the last to get on, 45 minute connection in Zurich from terminal A to E, my seat was given. But as I objected, they moved the dog lady and gave me back my seat. But they never asked a person in the seat that would have made sense to give her to trade seats."
Pros: "Flight was safe and crew was professional"
Cons: "Seats were horrible for a transcontinental flight. I was squirming before the first hour of an 8 hour flight. Touchscreen of entertainment system was frustrating. Sometimes it responded other times not. Lunch tasted good but the snack, a calzone, was pretty bad."
Pros: "I loved the timing of my connecting flights. Just enough layover time."
Cons: "There is no entertainment on this flight."
Pros: "Food, service,"
Pros: "It was a very short flight. Thankfully very short."

Cons: "My flight was pleasant"

Cons: "Seat hard. Space tight. I am 6’4”"
Pros: "Nearly all Flights on time"
Pros: "Flight was good. The problem was the ticket purchased from Kayak was not as stated. Because there was a layover in Amsterdam, I was not able to check my bag all the way through to USA. AND I had to visit 5 counters to check bag, pay for bag at different counter and 3 other counters!"
Cons: "It would have been better if the ticket I purchased was the one that I selected. It was not as advertised. I searched for ticket that was translatlantic with one checked bag. BUT kayak booked an ECONOMY LIGHT fare that required payment. It was not as advertised and a total head ache for check in."
Pros: "Crew was super professional and friendly !"
Cons: "Little to no overhead cabin room to stow by my bag so had to place under my feet."
Pros: "Seat super comfortable!"
Cons: "Food service could've been better"
Pros: "a320 was comfortable"
Pros: "Got an amazing pastry as a snack with tea, it was huge and really tasty!"
Cons: "Not much to say."
Pros: "We had a Lufthansa pilot sitting with us on his was back to Frankfurt. He was definitely good company and taught us a lot about how the airline worked, his family's history working with airlines, and life stories. The flight definitely went fast thanks to Daniel!"
Cons: "I was sick so couldn’t fly, spoke to customer care and they refused to let me change my flight"
Pros: "Friendly and cheerful crew. Very generous with the drinks."
Cons: "Very very long walk from aircraft to Schiphol exit. I must have walked for 20 minutes to get out. Not really Lufthansa's fault though."

Pros: "Online check in, easy to board. Flight was on time."
Cons: "I wish there was a vegan option for the food/snack onboard."
Pros: "Very roomy seats, friendly attendants. Nice sunset. My sister liked the 'tour' of the airport on taxiing to the gate. I found it frustrating. The plane was about 30 minutes late which was nice because it took a while to get off our Munich flight, find our new gate and we ended up nearly running to the gate."
Cons: "I, again, didn't like walking down 3 flights of stairs, getting a crowded bus to take us to the plane. We are used to using a jetway to the plane. I realize that European airports are busier than American airports though."
Pros: "Although the flight to Frankfurt was delayed for more than an hour they made special arrangements to get on time to the next flight."
Cons: "I have no flight to connect to."
Pros: "Everything except that cookie!"
Cons: "I liked everything except the cookie. It reminded me of the low quality supermarket American cookies, way too sweet and flavorless. They used to give little sandwiches, excellent in quality!!! A cookie is good too, but a better one would do a great difference! It was early morning, who would eat a sugary chocolate chip cookie for breakfast? But otherwise, I would fly with Lufthansa again in a heartbeat!!! Thank you!!!!!!"
Pros: "One of flight attendants lent me her phone charger to charge my phone which absolutely saved and they were just generally very pleasant and easy to interact with."
Cons: "Incorrect advice from check in staff at Dublin re transit visa requirements"
Cons: "I was not allowed to take my cabin bag and was forced to check it in at the checkin counter. The reason mentioned to me was the flight is small. Contradictorily, travellers after me in the queue were allowed to take cabin bags."
Pros: "You guys did a great job. I've never seen boarding go so smooth, The self-serve boarding gate was better than any human."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Flight was on time. We boarded and left on time. Flight attendants were friendly and courteous. I was happy to get a complementary sandwich and drink on such a short flight. We arrived at our destination earlier than expected. Seats were no frills, but decent. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Boarding is stressful. A free for all. I wish they would announce and board one section at a time. I'm traveling with children! I don't want extra stress of people being so pushy. Also,on arrival the bus back to the terminal was similar."
Cons: "I was denied boarding on the Dublin to Munich leg of my connecting flight from Newark to Munich. My ticket was booked through Lufthansa, but the transatlantic leg of my trip was operated by United. When checking in with United in Newark, I received two boarding passes, one for each leg of the trip. I arrived on time in Dublin for my flight to Munich and tried to board the plane for Munich with the boarding pass I had printed in Newark. After scanning my ticket, the Lufthansa employees at the gate informed me that they had no record of me or my plane ticket in their system. I showed them the email confirmation for my ticket, but they still could not find any record of my ticket in their online system. The employees seemed more concerned with boarding all passengers as quickly as possible than assisting me. After being denied boarding, I had to go back through passport control to change my flight, and ended up getting to Munich nearly 6 hours behind schedule and missed an entire day of vacation. A Lufthansa employee told me that out of every partner in the STAR alliance, United is the ONLY airline they have had this problem with. I find this inexcusable, I will be AVOIDING ANY United/Lufthansa connecting flight from now on."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight delayed by over 3 hours, inflight entertainment did not work"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and eager to help, as I was traveling alone with a baby"

Cons: "It will be hard to travel with another airline"
Pros: "Updates form Kayak were much better than any info from Lufthansa"
Cons: "Overbooked. Offering € 250 to stay. Serious delay"

Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Pros: "Good service except added an extra flight to my trip and"
Cons: "Pilot strike rerouted added a flight and 12 HRs"
Pros: "New crew on first flight but they we're even"
Cons: "Not much. Left sitting on a plane for over an hour & 1/2. Then taken into a door where I illegally entered the country. My passports seized. No other flight available to Dallas. Sent to Newark, NJ & missed the next flight to Dallas because Lufthansa lost my scooter. Someone pulled it by a wire and it doesn't run correctly. VERY BAD EXPERIENCE!!!"
Pros: "the crew was good"
Cons: "the food was poor"
Cons: "2 1/2 hour wait while boarded then missed flights in toronto. Toronto airport a mess! Unclear directions and procedues."
Cons: "I wasn't even on this airline my booking reference said that I was. I had this airlines flight number I go to the gate to check in, and then for me I'm on Air Canada. This was a mass from the start I will never use this airline or Air Canada again they ruin my login and told me it's still usable we had a delayed for three hours on the plane. Never never again!"
Pros: "Lufthansa always does an excellent job, even with a gate change."
Pros: "Roomy flight, professional crew, great service."

Pros: "30 minutes late boarding; food quite simple; entertainmentsystem very faulty"
Cons: "Delayed - but made up for later!"
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "There was a lack of communication with boarding and there was no one to check us in at the airport. We are paying you thousands of dollars, perhaps you could have someone check people in."
Pros: "The service and flight was smooth."
Cons: "Breakfast was terrible. We only got a croissant and jam. It would have been nice to have had an actual meal."
Pros: "Timely distribution of meals/drinks, uncommonly quick boarding and ... unboarding. I travel with a musical instrument and some airlines want to check it and some even insist on checking it, even though there is always plenty of room. This was a completely full flight and no one even mentioned the possibility of checking it; they put me in an early boarding line and put it in a closet. The way they handle this for myself and the other passenger with an instrument made our day, as well as making boarding smoother forbus and everyone else. Really excellent job on that!"
Cons: "Old televisions with somewhat limited entertainment options. Im tall and every seat in coach is too small for me, but thats the case on every flight ive been on."
Pros: "The food was pretty exceptional for a 2 hr flight."
Cons: "There was no entertainment service on the flught"
Cons: "On the way to Amsterdam from Chicago Seat 27C, the entertainment consul was completely broken. NO VIDEO NO MUSIC."

Cons: "The bus from the terminal to the plane was odd, but worked out fine in the end."
Pros: "Everything else was fine."
Cons: "I had paid for comfort seats ($140) extra. When I checked in at gate I was given another seat assignment (without explanation). It turned out to not be comfort seat, in fact it was the last row in the airplane. Had to get eh gate agent back, which was not fast. She said flight was full and a family had been spread out. I understand, but you can't just bump me from a paid and selected seat to a standard seat, especially on transatlantic flight after paying $140 extra. There was no apology. She went back to gate and little while later came back with a comfort seat. Some people seem not to have shown up as the seat next to me stayed open as well. It was very poorly handled."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and capable."
Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Pros: "Nice crew, good food."
Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."
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: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"
Cons: "Seats in economy section are very close together . There is not enough room for knees...especially for such a long trip."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"
Cons: "The coffe and breakfast."
Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!"
Cons: "Pay attention to passengers."
Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
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: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"
Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, Flight on time....just a regular service and plane"
Cons: "Terminal 3 Manchester is not worth staying longer then necessary, loud music, crowded....old"
Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
Pros: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"
Cons: "They stole my money"
Pros: "The flight was great."
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Pros: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Pros: "The staff and crew"
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
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: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."
Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."
Pros: "Flat bed seats 747 upper deck"
Cons: "Lost my luggage for 7 days"
Pros: "Lie Flat Seats were awesome. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Helpful flight attendant, kind check in attendant"
Pros: "Crew was good, especially from Beijing to Copenhagen"
Pros: "The flights and food were good. no problems there."
Cons: "There was a baggage strike in Copenhagen. We sat on the tarmac for about an hour awaiting a gate opening. The flight to Chicago took off an hour late and we missed our connecting flight into Columbus. And our bags never arrived in Chicago."
Pros: "Check in was so easy."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable. Entertainment was great. The service by the crew was great."
Cons: "It would have been nice if the armrest went as far back as the seat. Flying with my partner, she doesn’t sleep well on planes unless she can completely lean on me. The armrest between our seats only retracted to the upright seat level."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly. I was not expecting walking down to the tarmac to board the plane. But flight was uneventful."
Cons: "Checking in didn’t open until 2 hours before plane was scheduled to take off. Really? We got to airport early so we could eat dinner. You are depriving the airport of revenue. Not to mention we had to stand there for over an hour. And then just one agent showed up. Terrible service and planning."
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Everything was pleasant as expected except for one thing, mentioned below."
Cons: "45 minutes late taking off. Could have been the airport's fault rather than the airline though. I don't know."
Pros: "Efficient friendly service."
Cons: "We were economy so no food was provided, as expected so cannot rate. No entertainment was offered either."
Pros: "Good service from flight deck and cabin crew. Clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Take-off was nearly an hour late. No complimentary food and coffee was instant and very average."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Nice staff, good leg room, comfortable seats, complimentary hot beverages with refills offered."
Cons: "One seat was wet and steward had to provide blanket for my friend to sit on, one other persons bag got stained as floor was wet in front of her and bottom of middle seat magazine holder was also wet! Also flight was delayed leaving and there was rubbish and chewing gum from previous flights. we had to clean the tables ourselves with wet wipes as they were dirty from previous flights."
Cons: "Flight delayed and we sat on tarmac for 2 hours"
Pros: "I liked that it was available for me to return to Amsterdam in such late notice. Got there quickly and even earlier (10 mins) then expected."
Cons: "No on offered me anything to drink or a snack the entire flight or even a hand towel but others in front and behind me were receiving them. I didnt even feel acknowledged during the flight. Even though the tine was good, the price was way too high but since I was desperate I paid it."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Hottest I have ever been in a plane (we were in 40G and H) and I “run cold”. We were sweating and drinking water like crazy (they gave us one bottle and did not routinely walk the aisles handing out more). Luckily we brought our own water. Early June and headed to Scandinavia, not someplace hot. Seats were hard and I put my unused blankets under me."
Pros: "Crew were very pleasant. Flight was smooth, even though did not leave on time & therefore arrived later."
Cons: "More selection of food, more variety of sandwiches and bread used."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "No entertainment, only coffee and tea served."
Cons: "Check-in was a disaster. Took almost one hour for a trainee to check us in. Printed 8 bag tickets (for 2 bags) and after we complained was told there was no line at immigration, so should be okay. Guess having a 3 year old wasn’t enough for us to get any compassion or expedited service. At gate. No early boarding for children."
Cons: "Internet page for buying excess baggage was difficult to understand."
Pros: "No comment since very short flight."
Cons: "My husband was unable to check in on line. SAS when contacted by phone which was difficult to do because it is hard to locate their number had no explanation other than maybe due to security. We missed a tour due to the time spent (unsuccessfully) trying to solve this problem."
Pros: "I liked that boarding and take off went smoothly. The cabin crew was extremely nice and always was there when you need something!"
Cons: "There was no snack served."
Pros: "No entertainment. Food not part of basic deal. But was both no problem for me because it was a short flight. On both points I rather would say: N/A"
Cons: "Chairs were narrow and not so comfy."
Cons: "gate change at the last minute across whole airport, and I am in a wheelchair so it was very challenging. people at airport not accommodating, kind or friendly"
Pros: "I liked that we landed."
Cons: "Why can't SAS ever be on time? The last 4-5 flights I've been on have connected me either too late or just barely in time for connecting flights. Please be more like Swiss."
Pros: "Crew were good. Plane new and clean."
Cons: "I think the only free drinks are tea and coffee."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "1 hour delays and 70 euro bag fee"
Cons: "The agent at the gate misled me into thinking there would be no fee associated with a checked bag. When it turned out there was, I was told it was too late."
Pros: "Ok friendly"
Pros: "Everything was on time!"
Cons: "They charge me €70 for my bag and it should have been free!!"
Cons: "70euro baggage fee at counter check in while flying on SAS. The same fee is 13 Euro if is bag selected at the time of ticket booking. kayak never gave me the option."
Pros: "Very pleasant staff in airport and on board. Really like the new planes, too. Food served on long haul international legs even on SAS Go which was great."
Cons: "Boarding a bit confusing on a couple legs, didn't really announce boarding group etc, but otherwise was fine."
Cons: "I understood I could check one bag. Nope. Checking one bag cost me $67. So much for saving money."
Pros: "Was able to selct my seat"
Cons: "Had to pay €70 to check in luggage - most expensive ive ever seen! No beverages other than coffee and tea abailable, water could be appreciated"
Pros: "Fish was excellent, flight attendant gave me free wifi after after I had an issue to pay w my card, I was let through express security in copenhagen, US border protection was fast and easy."
Cons: "I didn't get a window seat and it was a little bit tight."
Cons: "Discovered that I would have to pay 70 euro for my bag check-in. Not fun at all."
Cons: "The flight to Stockholm was late which made it stressful to make my connection to Seattle. However the SAS agent I talked to was very helpful."
Cons: "During online check in and through the website, I was informed that I would be able to have one free checked bag. I was never prompted that I would have to pay additional. However, when I arrived at the airport, I was told that I had to pay an additional $75 to check my bag in even though my boarding pass stated I was able to check in one bag. I was then pushed back and forth through the airport to complete this process. I would have liked to be given warning if I had to pay any additional costs."
Pros: "The extra leg room I paid for."
Cons: "The cost to change my flight"
Cons: "Delayed departure. Temperature in cabin was uncomfortably hot while waiting for departure."
Pros: "short - efficient"

Pros: "Efficiency, confidence, promptness"
Pros: "It was the only non-stop flight for our needs. Timing was great too. It was nice to have 2 seats to ourselves."
Cons: "Going over our flight was cancelled at the last minute. We paid more for a non-stop flight we did not receive, lost wages because we both worked half-days to accommodate this flight departure time, and lost half a day of our trip. When we did fly on SAS to return, I found the service and amenities lacking. Why serve drinks well before your meal time and then not come back through with drinks again? Overall, it was not the best flight experience."
Cons: "Seats are bit dence. It would have been nice to get a complimentary soft drink, even it's a short flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly, the seats were very comfortable, and the lunch was good. The movie selection was great!"
Cons: "I wished the dinner was a little more substantial. It felt more like a snack than a meal."
Cons: "We were delayed before boarding, then delayed again upon landing. Hence, we missed our connection and had to fly to Copenhagen and not arrive in Helsinki until after midnight."
Pros: "Really pleasant flight. Excellent pilot, good crew."
Cons: "Nothing! This was one of my best flights ever."
Pros: "Thanks to COVID, minimal service"
Cons: "A cup of tea about $7.00. Can it be better. Certainly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed once we had boarded, so we had to sit at the gate for about 2 hours, which was not the crew's fault of course, however, they could have offered drinks. Once we finally got in the air, they only offered purchasable snacks in a way that was confusing--and did not even come through the cabin with complimentary drinks. Given the circumstances, and the fact the time in our seats was extended by over two hours, there could have been some better service from the actual flight attendants. It should have been clearly stated at the beginning of the flight, and once more when we were in the air, that no complimentary drinks were going to be handed out, and if we wanted anything, we would need to purchase it. I wouldn't have minded purchasing if I had known that was my only option."
Pros: "Out of my four flights with Aer LIngus, this leg of my trip that both left and arrived on time. It is sad, that when landing they had to say thank you for flying another on time Aer LIngus flight. Makes me wonder how often are you not on time? My experience says 75% of the time your late."
Cons: "First off, don't try charging me 150 euros to check my bags when I already paid for it at booking. Then who charges for 2,50 for a can soda on an air plane? Lastly, I'm 6'4" and the seats were so close there was no way to sit without my knees pressed into the seat in front of me."
Cons: "The airline charged for luggage at airport check in."
Cons: "Dublin airport No suitcase when we arrived No food. No inflight entertainment"
Cons: "No TV on board and you had to pay for a glass of water"
Pros: "NO SECURITY CHECK FOR INBOUND FLIGHTS. What a relief!"
Cons: "Cramped rickety stairs, up & down to Passport control. In flight service non-existent. Tepid coffee at absurd $4.50!"

Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable, the crew was friendly"

Cons: "Airplane was late 90 mins"
Pros: "Friendly and practical no complaints"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful."
Cons: "We were delayed on the tarmac for almost an hour due to a storm at AMS. Then delayed further in AMS waiting for a gate. Not the airlines fault though. They are one of the few major European airlines that don't serve free food."

Cons: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "this flight was unnecessarily delayed. it was possible to have an earlier connection"
Pros: "Flight was nice and was told when there would be turbulence"
Cons: "Boarded/left 20 minutes late"
Cons: "We arrived at Dublin airport two hours before our flight--as instructed--and had to enter an enormous line. Finally, we were instructed to leave the line after almost an hour and a half and were then informed that our tickets had been sold to someone else (we were bumped!). Aer Lingus tried to "normalize" this by explaining that they always "overbook" by 10%. How irresponsible! Instead of arriving in Paris at 4:30 PM (a direct flight) we had to take a flight to London and then to Paris and arrived at 11 PM exhausted (the bus service to Paris had closed down and we had to take a taxi). We will never fly Aer Lingus again. Aer Lingus created the long line to create this very situation!"
Pros: "I had an aisle seat."
Cons: "There was very little leg room, and no comfort for a tired traveler. This was the last leg coming in from Boston and having a 2 hour layover before continuing. The 2 hour trip seemed longer than the 6 hours it took to get to Dublin. The food service never even asked my row if they wanted to buy drinks/ food, even though my seat neighbor clearly put their tables down in anticipation of getting something to eat/ drink. A set of travelers had difficulty comprehending the rules about sitting in the exit row, and the stewardess was not very helpful, but looked angry and exasperated."
Cons: "Weather delays. No water except for purchase"
Cons: "Guy at check in was rude and insulting and my bag didn't arrive."
Cons: "Airline lost my luggage..."
Pros: "Wonderful crew"

Cons: "Seats don't recline. Didn't tell all snacks and beverages were not complimentary"
Cons: "All good and drink cost extra and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane was great compared to Ryan air"

Cons: "The air conditioning was too cold. I had to put on lots of layers of clothes and I was still cold."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No entertainment and no snack I don't believe"
Pros: "Crews attention to sick passenger"
Cons: "Coffee 3 euros? Pay for everything?"
Pros: "Pleasant crew, efficient boarding, comfortable seats. Food was good as was the wine I purchased."
Cons: "First set of earphones didn't work properly. Second set was better, but sound quality was still weak. Had dual prong outlets, so couldn't use my own. Entertainment offerings were decent, but not great compared to other airlines."
Cons: "Coffee was 3 euros?"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive to Amsterdam. I wasn't offered any assistance and I had to wait a day to receive my luggage! My flight was an early flight so it,ales not sense why it wasn't brought to the same day"
Pros: "Good ticket price."
Cons: "High priced sandwiches and beverages. Even coffee/tea is for additional charge."
Pros: "It's a real airline, with counters to check in. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Not even water for free."
Cons: "Airline lost my luggage."
Cons: "11 hours in Heathrow. I will use another airline just to avoid Heathrow next time. You chnged my itinerary putting me there for 11 hours. This was not my choice"
Pros: "Nice plane, nice crew, the airline with the best cup of tea and it is the only airline with Tayto Crisps."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Alcohol was not free"

Pros: "The landing was very smooth"

Pros: "A pleasant flight, good crew."
Cons: "They lost a bag and so far, 36 hours later, have not responded to our recorded messages, which us the only option we've found to reach them."
Pros: "$3 cup of coffee tasted like mud."
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind. I cannot say much about the boarding process. They boarded from the front of the plane to the back (which is the least efficient way of boarding), but I was travelling in a wheelchair, so I received priority boarding."
Cons: "I fell asleep before the plane even took off - it had been a long day. Because of this, I missed the snack and beverage cart. When I awoke, I was very thirsty. I could tell I was dehydrated. I asked the flight attendant for a beverage, and she prepared a glass for me and grabbed a Coke. Then asked for $2.50. I didn't have any money on me. I also have never known a flight to charge for your first non-alcoholic beverage. The seats were cramped. I have short legs, but my knees were an inch or so from touching the seat in front of me. When the person in front of me leant back, they were practically in my lap. I also did not have much space between me and the person beside me. The rows were three deep, and I sat near the window. Getting up to use the restroom, I was practically crawling on the other passengers' laps. There was no in-flight entertainment, but I wouldn't have expected it out of such a short flight (~2 hours from Dublin to Lisbon)."
Pros: "I liked that the flight time was relatively short."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be a bit put out that there were passengers -- as if our presence was a bit of a bother. Kind of odd."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Dread the return flight"
Cons: "Plane was to take off at 0740 and finally took off apx at 0850 we missed our train had a hassle changing our tickets. Staff on this plane was exceptionally rude. Couldn't even get a free glass of water. You would think because of the long delay a complimentary beverage would be offered. Would like an upgrade at no cost for the return flight for us"
Cons: "We landed at Logan early, but then had to wait for a gate. We still arrived at the gate a little ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Everything was a cost. Nothing was free. The flight attendant would not bring us a cup of water after a wouldn't pay for the bottle one. My kids where thirsty Airfare is so expensive now days that drinks ( water, milk, juice should not cost anything) and the plane should be cleaned. Sorry."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the seats were comfortable, boarding was smooth and easy. There were no delays. Overall it was still a very good flight and I will definitely fly Aer Lingus again."
Cons: "There wasn't any coffee or water available except for purchase. There was no inflight entertainment but it was a short flight so that didn't bother me too much. After arriving I noticed my suitcase was torn but it is possible this was done by airport personnel (TSA) not the airline's baggage handlers."
Pros: "Plenty of room"
Cons: "All was well!"
Pros: "seats were comfortable! No entertainment but I didnt need any so no problem."
Cons: "boarding was delayed and gate area small, cramped"
Pros: "The plane felt fairly new, and I snoozed comfortably (well, as comfortably as it gets) all the way to Berlin. Unlike on Ryanair flights, these seats actually recline. The captain kept us well updated on take-off and landing; when he came out personally and stood with the crew to see us leave the plane at the end, I was hooked."
Cons: "If someone had been sitting in front of me, and reclined (like I did), I may have had them literally in my face. A few more inches between seats would surely help..."
