Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was great. Comfortable seats. Grateful they held the plane when we had a late arrival in Zurich"
Cons: "Swiss generally should be more helpful/accommodating with transfers - especially at mammoth airports like Zurich. We had 10 minutes to transfer - and my mother requested wheelchair support, which never came. Just a disaster in that regard."
Pros: "The expedited transfer from late flight out of Rome was an amazingly efficint process, much appreciated. Was very stressed when I thought I could not make the transfer, but Swissair really had it covered. My compliments"
Pros: "Food was great, creww was very nice"
Cons: "Following our request, such has being seated next to each other and not only having one person being upgraded when we're two."

Pros: "nice flight"
Pros: "Seat was ok, crew was friendly"
Cons: "Movie options were limited"
Pros: "Staff, food, on board entertainment all very impressive. Great flight."
Cons: "Because we missed our connection on our incoming flight, due to a delay leaving Newark by Swiss, Swiss cancelled our returning flights. So when we got to the airport on our return day, we were not booked on any flights. We were required to stay overnight and take a United flight home. Will avoid Swiss in the future."
Pros: "Though I was never sent an email for my daughter's check in, I had a different reservation for her but still under my name and same email, when I called on the phone the people were pleasant. They still never provided me with an email though and information allowing me to have my daughter checked in. they only provided me with her reference number."
Cons: "All in all we had a poor experience and my family and I were disappointed. I'm about to book yet another ticket for my brother, but this time I'm not considering Swiss Air. Just so you know, I'm a very positive person and appreciate every polite and courteous gesture. Unfortunately this experience didn't allow me to do so."
Pros: "Loved the warm and very delicious quiche, thank you!"
Cons: "All of it"
Pros: "Swiss is famous for the punctuality, I actually love the airport too in Zurich, is super clean and modern, very efficient. Food on board was great in Economy as well!"
Cons: "the seats are not spacious enough. I barely had the seats in front on my basically on my laps.. a little bit too claustrophobic!"
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly, efficient, courteous Refreshments generous and excellent. Good movies."
Cons: "Rather than boarding economy passengers by row number, there is a free-for-all at the gate, and tedious blockage in the aisles as passengers wait for others to place carry-on luggage. More leg-room than United, but still a bit crowded for tall people. VERY BAD DESIGN of arm-rests, which do not go up all the way into the seat but instead jut out at an angle."
Pros: "Dry. I’ve food and really felt pampered"
Cons: "I paid extra for economy plus with extra legroom and a seat that reclined more - waste of money - the seats were extremely uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Great flight. Lots of good food."
Pros: "The service and food are very good."
Cons: "Tight space for business class."
Pros: "Staff walked around with water quite a bit, gave my kids a special kids meal"
Cons: "A little tight in economy and i am short"
Pros: "Good film selection -which unfortunately I couldn’t watch. To be fair I got a 50 CHF discount for my next flight with Swiss."
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn’t working in my row. Food was not great, not the standard I’m used to from Swiss. Took them forever to turn on air handling after boarding, plenty of time for All the people with colds and coughing fits to infect everybody else."
Pros: "Food is excellent... nice variety plus dessert. Everything was hot & delicious & used metal utensils which was much nicer than plastic."
Pros: "Everything was as accommodating as possible."
Pros: "Nice staff and inflight service. seats were great"
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "Large person next to me spilled over into my seat. Large people should sit with folks like themselves"
Pros: "Excellent food."
Cons: "Yet again, was "randomly" chosen for extra security. Flight was delayed for over an hour because of mechanical failure. A/C set at polar temperatures."
Pros: "on time, good food, pleasant service"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to technical problems, and they immediately gave each person 20 Francs towards dinner while in the terminal- which was very nice. The aircraft itself was impeccably clean, even though it had already carried passengers elsewhere earlier in the day. The service was fantastic, and you can never go wrong with free chocolate."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, air crew was friendly, helpful and patient. The food was actually really quite good. Entertainment kept my little ones occupied and seated."
Cons: "There were quite a lot of in-flight announcements by the flight crew - which disrupted the in-flight entertainment and irritated the little ones. The garbage dispenser in the bathroom seemed a bit small for the task."
Pros: "Outstanding service. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Was sent through two redeem security screenings. In Zürich. I doubt this was the airline's fault but it had been a very early morning and it was challenging to remain patient."
Pros: "Legroom is too little"
Pros: "Food a, entertainment and crew were really good!"
Cons: "Boarding was chaose and seats were tight."
Pros: "The food was really great! And the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Many delays that seemed unnecessary. We waited for a while for late passengers to board, which seemed strange, given that last time when Swiss made me miss my transfer, the next plane left without me when delaying takeoff would not have been necessary at all. After the passengers arrived, we were delayed again because of weather. And once we arrived at Newark, we had to wait for over half an hour to get to the gate for some mysterious reason."
Pros: "I was concerned the connections would be too tight but it worked out great!"
Pros: "The flight attendants are great and their aircraft are very clean and comfortable. I especially appreciated the request for passengers to raise their seat backs during meal times."
Pros: "Food was tasty and of decent proportions, entertainment, while somewhat limited in selection, contained a number of compelling movies bar I enjoyed. I had a bulkhead seat, which was exceedingly comfortable"
Cons: "USB port was broken in the seat, but enjoyed the entertainment offered that I didn't need it."
Pros: "Best flight crew experience ever"
Cons: "The seats are too close together front to back. It's torture if you are six feet tall and the person in front of you put the seat in the back position for 8 hours."
Pros: "Crew, food...."
Cons: "As I said before..."
Cons: "Expired cheese. Loudest plane I have ever been on."
Pros: "Even though the flight felt like forever, the cabin crew did such a wonderful job at making us all feel comfortable. The food selection was great and the fact that the staff was approachable was also a great plus. Will definitely fly again using Swiss air. Thank you"
Cons: "On the flight to Zurich the passenger behind me gave me a difficult time about reclining my seat back but keep in mind he had his reclined. Coming back to Newark the gentleman behind my boyfriend made a comment how he didn't have room due to his seat being reclined. The passenger next to us was arguing with the passenger in front of her because she didn't want that person to recline their seat back. I have never experienced such rude people on a flight and I realize this is beyond your control. It made for a very uncomfortable and stressful flight. Maybe signs can be posted or a message when booking your flight that ALL passengers have a right to recline seats and if space is an issue for your comfort then upgrade to business class for more room."
Pros: "Good entertainment variety. Food was good, including snacks. Generous with drinks as well. Crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Letting us know about the delay prior to boarding could have allowed us to use our time better. Instead we sat at the gate and in the plane. Seats (economy) a bit closer to each other relative to other planes and the armrest does not fully go up which does not allow us to use space as much as possible."
Pros: "I cannot check in online for us flights so I need to get my seat at the check in. I am flying with swiss every month between Zürich and New York but a lot of Ines I get a shitty seat even if I am silver status As a frequent flyer I expect a priority handling which is not the case . No upgrade poaaibility due to wrong booking class (even if flights are very expensive) if this continues to go that way I will change airline alliance This is more a miles and more issue but it is really annoying me in a way that I really consider changin"
Pros: "Everything except the earphones was great"
Cons: "The earphones are bad and connector is 2 pins, so couldn't use mine."
Pros: "Again, crew and food."
Cons: "I will only say that I am writing this review as we are sitting on the plane in Newark where we are waiting for our gate for a half an hour already and we do not know when we would get off board. And oh yeah... the flight was originally late for about an hour too! Simply unacceptable!"
Cons: "Unorganized and hectic at the gate; personnel were rude and unhelpful. I was asked numerous times to Leave and let them do their work" when I asked why I was on standby and what that meant."
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "Food, service"
Cons: "Room in economy"
Pros: "Airline attendants were very polite and nice."
Cons: "Older plane, arm rests did not go up all the way, and missed landing on the initial approach to Newark, which delayed landing for another 20 minutes."
Pros: "Prem Econ was good. Space, crew, etc."
Cons: "Could have had additional snacks or drinks during the flight."
Pros: "The crew was a 10. They were wonderful."
Cons: "I was in business class and the tv remote did not work."
Pros: "food and drink very good, flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "boarding was very cramped ,flight was delayed , I lost my luggage"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent. Food was great. Even though the flight big planes they seem to handle the boarding process very well."
Cons: "Selecting the seats 23 hrs before departure."
Pros: "Good service."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, comfortable seats & leg room, decent food."
Cons: "Crew could have offered more beverages during the flight. Too many crying, screaming and misbehaving kids (not the crews fault) but parents should have managed this behaviour. I fly often, and have never experienced anything like this - to this extent on one flight."
Pros: "Convenient connections, fantastic airport, new aircraft with many large toilets in lower deck, super professional crew, really make a big difference when travelling 9 hours with 3 young kids."
Pros: "SEAT COMFORT CREW ALL AROUND BOARDING SMOOTH / ON TIME / SOLID ALL AROUND GREAT AIRLINE"
Cons: "2 people working passport control in line about 100 people were in. Most had connecting flights leaving shortly. People were panicked they would miss their flights."
Pros: "Their service is excellent on board ."
Pros: "Flight crew went above and beyond, great in-flight meals and entertainment. Overall smooth flight."
Cons: "Headrest too high for my short self!"
Pros: "Efficient and pleasant service."
Pros: "I thought the crew was OUTSTANDING. The food was good and so was the entertainment. I LOVED the toilets being in the separate area downstairs. I also really appreciated the temperature: very comfortable and not freezing cold, but not hot either. Again, GREAT crew!!! Very pleasant flight!"
Cons: "The flight was late leaving and arrived late, which made my connecting flight experience a nightmare My connecting flight arrived late, and I nearly missed my next flight. I had to go through border control (and relevant queues), running up and down multiple never-ending multiple escalators, then take a train to change terminal only to find out the gate had been changed to the furthest one in the terminal. I literally RAN all the way from deplaining to boarding. It was a night mare. I would have missed my flight if I had walked instead of running"
Pros: "the seats are comfortable, food is good and service is better than most"
Cons: "That it took a while to get on plane because of security but thats how it goes"
Pros: "Very nice staff, lovely meal with wine and beer included. Overall experience very nice!"
Cons: "We were late about 30 minutes at boarding. Late to connecting flight but didn't miss it!"
Pros: "The professionalism and warmth of the staff, the food, the wet towels before a meal. We appreciated the constant supply of beverages to keep us hydrated."
Cons: "The disjointed announcements which kept disrupting the movie we were watching. It would be helpful to have one single announcement instead of breaking it up into several smaller units. We had a serious issue with a passenger in front of us who kept jamming his seat back into our knees. The flight staff did a great job of trying to resolve the issue. But the bottom line is that the seats are way too close together for such a long flight."
Pros: "The services provided by United were good, although we were delayed due to mechanical issues. However, we were kept informed and made comfortable."
Cons: "I did not know when I booked through Lufthansa that it was a United flight, so I could not check in online and I was not able to order my gluten-free meal. Also, since it was Lufthansa, I was not able to download the entertainment system onto my portable device because I did not know I needed to."
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: "Leg room is superior!"
Pros: "Top notch in-flight entertainment. Chicken meal was not bad. Friendly crew"
Cons: "These flights in and out of Newark have the tightest leg room I've been on. I feel bad for tall passengers. The boarding gate from Düsseldorf was way too crowded."
Pros: "crew, food, seat location, service."
Cons: "Entertainment selections were limited."
Pros: "A very nice flight overall. Plane left 40 minutes late to wait for other connecting flights but caused me to miss my connection later that day. Was compensated with hotel room and dinner."
Cons: "Amount of time waiting for crew to address my call button request. Almost 20 minutes waiting for flight attendant to respond."
Pros: "great service and flight"
Pros: "Nicest crew ever"
Cons: "Boarding ground crew was a bit arrogant"
Cons: "My plane was non existent and put me on a time crunch for connecting flight."
Pros: "Comfortable, timely and pleasant overall."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight delayed by over 3 hours, inflight entertainment did not work"
Pros: "The most professional and helpful crew"
Pros: "Lots of movies to choose from. Meal was great. I liked that the cabin crew gave us plenty of water & choice of fruit juices"
Cons: "All was great."
Cons: "I had requested a gluten free meal weeks before my travel and it was not confirmed for the Naples to Frankfurt flight. I think that if I already requested ahead of time that the flight crew should know about it and be ready to provide me with the correct meal even if I don't call back and confirm."
Pros: "Was served food and drinks for a 2 hr flight between OTP and MUC. Who else does this? My mom was offered transportation assistance throughout the entire flight. Preboarding on every leg of the flight"
Cons: "Since I was sitting among the last seats, they ran out of.chicken and I had to settle for spinach filled ravioli. This is the only minor issue."
Pros: "Once on board the flight was smooth and the crew were very professional."
Cons: "The check-in process at DUS has a lot of room for improvement. The lines were long and the were not many staff out front providing info to customers."
Pros: "more than 2 hours spent in the plane which was the reason for waiting at the airport taxi and extra pay."
Pros: "Ground crew very helpful to get connecting flight on time"
Cons: "Run to get in on a plane"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Competent crew. Excellent service."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "everthing was good!"
Cons: "My entertainment screen was barely functional. Also, I was in a window seat and the space under the seat in front of me had a white metal box taking up part of my legroom. Not anything I would have seen on a seating diagram."
Pros: "Love crew & very clean"
Cons: "Need better food options for vegans"
Pros: "The pilot and cree were proactive in returning thevplane 36mins inflight due to an un unexplained smell everyone was treated well and another aircraft was made available for the flight back"
Cons: "Nothing to comment"
Pros: "Solid selection of new release films."
Cons: "Emergency landing, information not willingly provided. Passengers threatened with legal action for taking pictures of the emergency landing and aftermath. It appeared crew were more concerned with bad PR than transparency and comfort of passengers."
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!!!"
Cons: "Whole experience with them was a nightmare and is still ongoing. They won't help me so I had to turn to Amex to settle everything and get my money back. Unbelievable. The airport had to close due to an emergency, that's out of Lufthansa's hands I obviously understand that. However, the way we were "helped" through all of this was unbelievable- over two and a half hours of phone calls with them, while in Europe (so paying God knows what per minute), 4 hours to get my luggage back so we could leave, absolutely no one from Lufthansa around to help or even tell us what's going on, put us on a flight the following day with two layovers now (paid more for only one layover but what can I do). Next day, at Alitalia gate (Lufthansa put me on an itinerary with flights from Alitalia, Lufthansa and United) had to pay AGAIN to check the bag that I had just paid to check the previous day where we did not end up flying anywhere (showed Alitalia the receipt, they didn't care in the slightest and said its Lufthansas problem, 0 stars for them as well), either way finally got through our 2 layovers, only to discover the final leg of our trip (United/ Lufthansa flight) is delayed 3 hours. Just about to board, now it's delayed another 5 hours. Because we were short a pilot...... Short a pilot, really....? Ended up getting home at 2am on a work night, completely jet lagged and utterly exhausted from being in an airport for 2 straight days. Supposed to get compensation as per United flight crew, only I put my ticket information in the website and it doesn't work for me of course because I have a Lufthansa ticket. No one cares, no one helps, now it's time for Amex to step in and get all of my money back."
Pros: "Very good service and on time."
Pros: "United new food menu is much improved (well, it could only get better . . .). And the decision to give free drinks again on Trans Atlantic flights is much appreciated. Previous policy just seemed mean cf other airlines"
Pros: "Your services and email updates were some of the best in the business."
Cons: "Your website is the least friendly we have EVER encountered."
Pros: "The services the food the plane the sits"
Cons: "The lines getting in the planes took a little too long but not much"
Cons: "After we realized our flight was cancelled we were trying to reach Lufthansa but couldn't for a long time. It was very frustrating. There was nothing we could do on their website either. No alternative flights were offered, no additional information about how and when we can fly home. We had to stay one extra day on Salzburg since this was the only option given to us by Lufthansa when we finally spoke to them the next day. This experience with Lufthansa was absolutely disappointing and we will probably never book with them again."
Pros: "the staff and boarding service was good"
Cons: "The food was hard to eat and poor quality and flavorless"
Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."
Pros: "The seats were so comfortable"
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"
Cons: "Delay due to strike"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"
Cons: "The coffe and breakfast."

Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"
Cons: "Instead of crisps maybe a bit of cheese or crackers"
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: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."
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"
Pros: "Cabin Crews was extremely good and hospital. Transfer point staff buggy / wheal Chair was good and second to none."
Cons: "Transfer point needs upgrade."
Pros: "Service was great as usual. Food was very good and entertainment options were great so you won't have to be bored throughout the trip."
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: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
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: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Nice to have a wrap for the snack."

Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"
Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"
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: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"
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"
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
Pros: "The service, entertainment, food, the crew, the aircraft were excellent."
Cons: "They put us in a Transavia plane."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and accomodating, plane was clean and boarding amd disembarking was efficiently handled."
Cons: "55 minute delay was not welcome."
Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."
Pros: "Overall, good flight"
Cons: "Can’t believe SAS charges for 1 piece of luggage Never experienced in all the years I’ve travelled internationally Also couldn’t accept UScredit card to buy a drink- yes you had to buy an alcoholic beverage on the flight to Europe Better to upgrade your ticket so you can check a bag and use lounge"
Pros: "the diverse amount of films"
Cons: "the food could have been better."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "That we had to pay for checked bagage on the return flight (Copenhagen to Newark) was an unpleasant and expensive surprise. In the 25+ years I have flown trans Atlantic with SAS, this is the first time that I’ve had to pay for luggage. No pre-warning .... :-(."
Cons: "When we checked in for the return flight in CPH we learned that our return ticket was “light” ie it did not include luggage. we were not informed about this, we did not request a ‘light” return ticket, and...why would we when we checked luggage flying over? We’d like the usd100 refunded"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Seat was better then usual."
Cons: "Don’t make us pay for our drinks."
Cons: "Again we had to climb down stairs with our luggage to get to the boarding area, then we had the typical ramp. What is it with Europe and stairs? If you have any issues beware. You better be strong and fit to fly in Europe. Not too many luxuries."
Pros: "The food was amazing"
Cons: "The seats could have more space"
Pros: "Great food, excellent crew, pillow, blanket, water bottle... what more could i ask for?"
Cons: "Mildly annoying advertisements for the in- flight shopping during the movies and overhead"
Pros: "Beautiful airport, nice merchandise and merchants.flights on time."
Cons: "In Copenhagen I left my iphone in the bin during security check. Half an hour later i heard my name on P.A. system. The message was muffled and never repeated. I ran in circles trying to retrieve my phone and I got very poor assistance. I had to be deboarded an boarded again and barely made my flight. I was misinformed several times and ran around the airport with my hand luggage like a chicken without a head. Why wasn’t it brought to my gate? They had my info."
Pros: "SAS handles their business very professionally. Entertainment is great, purchasing seats with extra room is affordable. Reliable service."
Cons: "Seats are extremely uncomfortable, especially for an 8+ hour flight."
Pros: "Business class lounge excellent. People who helped with the wheelchair were excellent."
Cons: "In a wheelchair. Check in was terrible and rude. The fact that SAS did not allow us to bring my electric chair directly to the gate was absurd (only airline in the world that did that). The fact that it was not at the gate when we arrived in Newark surprised even the SAS Gate agents. Had to go to baggage and collect it in oversize baggage. Will not fly SAS again until that policy has changed."
Pros: "The food was great and the staff were excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was limited and there were no live channels - just prerecorded content"
Pros: "flight arrived on time"
Cons: "The food was poor, ventilation system in the cabin terrible. Smell from bathrooms during the whole flight, both ways. SAS lost our luggage and nobody seams to care about it. They know that there is a problem with luggage transfer on connecting flight, but don't bother to do anything about it. Customer service representative is not able to provide any information, doesn't even understand English well. Nobody answers the phone... At this point, we're still waiting for our bags"
Cons: "Was overlooked by the pursor a couple times - he probably had a lot on his plate. Also, the "snack" at the end of the trip was sorely lacking! Especially for a 7 hour flight. The bathrooms were gross & out of toilet paper. And it seemed like one was locked constantly...?"
Pros: "On time, movies, service staff"
Pros: "Staff efficient."
Cons: "Leg room is tight. No free alcohol. Dinner was very good. Lunch snack was tasteless."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable for economy. Crew was pleasant, attentive and efficient. Good seatback entertainment system."
Cons: "Once passengers do final passport check and enter secure gate area on this flight to the US, there’s no bathroom available. On the transatlantic flight, no complimentary glass of wine as on other airlines."
Pros: "Good food and a good entertainment system that comes with plenty of options. I really like that SAS doesn’t go for your wallet for every bag like jus about EVERY AMERICAN CARRIER!"
Cons: "Leg room could be more generous but then again I’m 6’3” so it is what it is."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable -- the plane wasn't very full, so there was room to spread out for some folks. As a vegetarian, the lunch meal was EXCELLENT, thank you. There was a second snack given just before landing that was basically roasted peppers on bread that was not good -- so you know, many vegetarians actually have sensitivity against peppers, so perhaps another vegetable or option would be better there. Crew was very affable and helpful."
Cons: "See point before re: second snack. Our flight was delayed for two hours, presumably due to snow in Oslo. The boarding area was disorganized -- something I remember from flying through Norway a few years ago as well. I also didn't quite understand why I received priority boarding, as a United gold member on my outbound fight, but not on my return. So the inconsistency was a bit confusing/frustrating. But the flight overall was smooth, and the accommodations quite good."
Pros: "Really good price, excellent service."
Cons: "A silly point, but I would appreciate fewer announcements when I’m watching a movie. (Laughing out loud)"
Cons: "Didn't make connectingflight due to a bomb alert at airport. sAS didntgive any support with either food or hotel. Stuck in Copenhagen for a day and night."
Pros: "Free water bottles, headphones, blankets and pillows for all passengers. Two meals (one full, one small). TVs in chairs. Flight felt roomy. A relatively pleasant experience."
Cons: "No free booze!"
Pros: "Crew were good. Plane new and clean."
Cons: "I think the only free drinks are tea and coffee."
Pros: "I am vegetarian with no egg fish or meat. I didn't get any choices"
Pros: "It was100 % flawless and I recommend the SAS airline to all. The airline staff is great and the food is good."
Cons: "As previously stated, I think the airline should do a better job in answering phone calls. If they do answer the phone (1-800-221-2350), they either put you on hold for a whole day or, if you leave your phone no. and name to have them call you back, they never do . I am not the only person who has this experience. It is too bad because if this continues, the airline will loose business and I would hate to see that. However, I still will use KAYAK"
Pros: "They were very accommodating to alternate diets. All staff were very friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Comfy seats. Good good service. Great video options."
Cons: "SAS staff seems sort of cold and cranky."
Pros: "Flights on time"
Cons: "The flight to Sweden was very very bumpy. Lots of turbulence very scary"
Pros: "Good legroom good food in early"
Cons: "Waiting area at gate to small not jalf as much seating as needed"
Pros: "Real meals"
Pros: "I flew SAS from ewr to wro and back a d can't say enough good things about the company. The crew was very friendly and always smiling, the flight was quick and arrived early, the plane was very clean aND overall just great experience. Next flight I'll be looking to book with SAS. Thank you Adam Bartosik"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed well over an hour. I was unable to check in the night before. I was finally able to check in online the afternoon of the flight, but no seats were left, so had a boarding pass with no seat assignment. Got to the gate and they sent me and about 25 other folks with no seat assignment to wait for a "colleague" who finally appeared after almost everyone else had boarded. I did get a seat, but I was one of the last to board. They ran out of salmon dinners, so the stewardess plopped a chicken dish in front of me--didn't eat since I am vegetarian. The stewardess did give me a free mini bottle of wine, which is normally free on Lufthansa. I am just not all that impressed with SAS. I will try to avoid them in the future."
Pros: "Good choice of movies."
Cons: "I was seated between two families with two babies on board so there was little room for me to rest since there was a lot of movement."
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: "The food was not too bad and the menu options were alright. I love using the complimentary ear buds."
Cons: "Could use some improvements on comfort and efficiency"
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."
Pros: "SAS is the best airlines !!"
Pros: "Even though this was an older model plane, the cabin at least did not feel like an oven, which was the case when we flew SAS to Copenhagen."
Cons: "This was a 9 hour flight where if the lights were off, a baby would sleep. Instead, the lights were left on to encourage the purchase of food/drink and airmail knick knacks."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew forgot to start serving the final meal until 40 minutes before we landed which resulted in them nearly throwing food at people so that they could quickly get through the plane and sit again before descent. I was not able to choose my seat and was seated in the back of the plane. Consequently this meant that every parent on the plane with two-year-olds decided that the best place to let them stretch their little legs was back by me. I work with small children so I understand that when they reach that age all they want to do is kick and punch, but I didn't want to end my vacation by having half a dozen two-year-olds punch my leg or try to crawl under my chair as they wandered nearby. I still have bruises."
Pros: "On time and smooth travel."
Cons: "No choice in dinner items."
Cons: "Delayed departure. Temperature in cabin was uncomfortably hot while waiting for departure."
Pros: "Staff seemed nice. Boarding didn't take too long even when I was selected for a random check."
Cons: "The air conditioning didn't go on until take off. There were no options for food. All alcoholic beverages were not complementary and priced too high. I got sick after eating the meal that was provided. i reserved a seat but at check in the computer assigned me a different seat number. I was flying with a family member and instead of sitting next to them I had to sit next to a stranger."
Pros: "A bottle of water along with the standard pillow and blanket at each seat. Never had a long line for the bathroom (dumb luck?)"
Pros: "Food and movies were great!"
Cons: "Couldn't afford a seat with leg space."
Cons: "I lost my luggage!!!"
Cons: "I was sitting next to a girl who was not part of my family who got airsick 3 times on the flight. The first time I told the airline attendant and she brought a large plastic bag and some paper towels. The girl but her used airsick bag inside the large plastic bag. I tied the top and put in next to me near the aisle because I expected the attendant to come pick it up. The attendant told me I had to take it to the lavatory and dispose of it in there. It was very hard to get the large plastic bag into the small trash receptacle because it had fill with air. I asked the attendant for another airsick bag but she never brought it. The girl got sick again and she used my airsick bag. While walking the bag up to the lavatory, I asked a different attendant for another airsick bag. They just told me I had to dispose of it in the lavatory and never brought another airsick bag. I had to ask someone for their airsick bag because the girl got sick a third time. I can not believe the horrible service on this flight! The poor girl was crying because she felt so sick and there wasn't anyone to help her. I did what I could but I felt something could have been done by the crew. I will think twice before I reserve another flight on SAS."
Pros: "Efficiency, confidence, promptness"
Cons: "The meals were mediocre and should be up to the standard of the rest of SAS service. The selection of movies could have been wider. They do help pass the time."
Cons: "I was sitting next to a special needs man and the crew was extremely unhelpful towards him. He should not have been flying alone and they did not help him at all. When you handed out the customs form he told the stewardess he needed help and she ignored him. When I pressed the call button for him it took someone 35minutes to come back and then she told him she would help him after dinner. I pressed a call button the second time to help him find something and again it took over 30 minutes for someone to come back to us. If there was a real emergency this delay would have been a huge problem. The stewardess was extremely rude in general."
Cons: "Food included in the price for a 6+ hour trip!"
Pros: "Yes good crew Very nice seats Good entertainment"
Cons: "I wish some food was included Like cheese sandwich etc Long lines at the airport for check in"
Pros: "Seats aren't as close together as some airlines, crew is friendly, blankets and pillow is nice, good touchscreens, bottle of water getting on was nice."
Cons: "No snack even on such a long flight! Also, boarding is a tad chaotic since there is no order and people just get on from both directions."
Cons: "On boarding in Iceland"
Pros: "The air was working and it wasn’t hot and the plane wasn’t sold out so there was some room."
Cons: "Boarding the plane process."
Cons: "The attendants were professional and friendly. The plane was clean, the seats in coach were fine. Just remember to bring your own food and beverage as they don’t have food unless you pre order."
Pros: "Great crew friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Not mucj"
Cons: "Entertainment screens for about a third of the plane didn’t work and staff didn’t seem to care. Boarding took forever and plane left about 45 minutes late."
Pros: "Boarding at front and back of plane or am I confusing with Wideroe flight?"
Cons: "Repeatedly asked the same questions while trying to make flight. Very small gate area for number of passengers. Only one person at gate asking two questions re bags. Long wait for bus to plane."
Pros: "Same as before"
Cons: "Same as previously stated"
Pros: "The flight from IAD to KEF was fine, but the flight back was not so good. I liked that they waited for those with connecting flights and the staff was nice."
Cons: "The right half of the plane had no entertainment as the system wasn't working and the crew couldn't fix it. When I checked in I only had the option of a middle seat, so we were 3 cramped in a row, while the lady on the opposite side slept flat across her 3 seats that no one was sitting in."
Pros: "Great respectful & kind crew, comfortable plane."
Pros: "Everyone was super helpful and made the trip comfortable."
Pros: "Staff was excellent."
Pros: "The movie options made the flight much more managable."
Cons: "All was well - maybe free peanuts or pretzels would have been good."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "When we booked through Kayak we were not told that there was a very large additional fee for baggage- even more since we stopped in Iceland."
Cons: "Seats didn’t recline, no food horrible airline to fly"
Pros: "You’re going for no frills. Competitive pricing maybe but consider baggage situation first. We went transatlantic and paid for a bag using economy light fare to make it work. Only needed one checked bag. Kids even in economy light get a free meal - though none are heated. Cabin is ok. Flight attendants were nice. even asked another passenger to move so I could have a seat for my lo infant even though I hadn’t paid for a seat for him. There was space of the flight so I didn’t feel badly about this. WiFi was affordae and generally reliable. I had a turkey pretzel bread wedge that was tasty."
Cons: "Witnessed many customers checking in who thought a bag was included. Entertainment is ok but screens have limited kid activities. Each leg of my flight took off 15-20 min late easily. Overall this wasn’t bad as it was made up in-air. Except one layover was only an hour, And cut it a bit close clearing passport control and traveling with two kids. No time to even see Kaflavik or pick up food or drinks. We ran to the final boarding call after clearing passport control. Also not good was that they don’t offer gate check on strollers. On a departure, you can use your stroller all the way up to the gate, but you get it back with any checked baggage at baggage claim, so you won’t have a stroller for layovers in Keflavík or clearing customs on either end. That was a pain. Strollers came up after all baggage. Not good for traveling families. Kids should be first especially after a 6 hour flight which was probably a second leg."
Pros: "Exit row with extra leg room was very comfortable, fairly recent entertainment system with lots of options"
Cons: "Boarding process is chaotic and gate area cramped, had to stay in line to board."
Cons: "The gate location was confusing. Only paid food was available."
Pros: "Always love the food and the crew."
Cons: "Overall, boarding process is chaotic and can be frustrating"
Pros: "Great options for entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding procedures in Iceland. A bit chaotic."
Cons: "Delayed departure. Checking baggage is expensive!!!"
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "Transfer and boarding in KEF was an organized mess"
Pros: "Loved that the plane was on the emptier side and we had the luxury to spread out. I also appreciated the great selection of movies and audiobooks, along with fantastic informational and promotional material about Iceland! I watched a beautiful Icelandic film (Heartstone?) and listened to an audiobook about Viking history, then concluded the flight with an episode of Planet Earth. We also loved getting a bottle of Iceland water as we were boarding the flight!"
Cons: "Mainly, I was unhappy that the plane was nearly 40 minutes late arriving in Newark, which resulted in us missing our bus home. The "gate" in Iceland was also extremely chaotic— it seemed as though the airport was not big enough to handle all the flights."
Pros: "Crew nice, food pretty decent, flight on time"
Cons: "Boarding was awful. Hundreds of people jammed together at multiple gates like cattle. Terrible planning"
Cons: "Very bad connection in Reykjavic. Airport overcrowded, flight delayed. On-boarding messy. Could not check-in online. Seated separetely from my wife. Inflight Beverages and food is not free."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Old movies. Only allowed one small bottle of water. The gate was packed, hugely overcrowded."
Pros: "The in flight wifi"
Cons: "5-6 hour flight with no complimentary meal or snack? Not to mention the 40 minute delay! Next time, I will choose a different airline. I expected better from Icelandair, very disappointed."
Cons: "Horrible service, no complimentary snacks or food, chairs are very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew were fine"
Cons: "as above : Arrival in Iceland :Airport is like a cattle pen. Very crowded. The bus to and from aircraft is also uncomfortable and time consuming especially with tight connections. Anyone with disabilities needs to avoid this airport. Seat pitch is a bit tight and window and center seat passengers can have a tough time getting out when seats in front are fully reclined"
Cons: "The luggage waitbin newark is a joke. Really a joke , hour wait for luggage? How is that possible?"
Pros: "Crew was great, Courteous and cheerful. Uniforms looked sharp and well maintained."
Cons: "Connecting flight transfer very rushed."
Cons: "Our first flight arrived very late to Reykjavik from Munich and the gate for the connection was changed while we were rushing to the new one. It was very hard to get to the gate because there was people all over the place, big crowds that didn't know if they were in the right lines for their flights. There was no space to get there, just hundreds of passengers all over the place who didn't know what to do and no announcements were made until the very moment that they started boarding. Very bad experience. The final approach to Newark airport was terrible with the plane going down in bumps and the landing was also bad."
Pros: "Got home safely. Plane had Rolls Royce engines. Four sixty from London to Newark is a good price."
Cons: "Broken screens for 2 of our three travelers, pull down tray was dirty, not even a free bag of nuts for a 6 hour flight? Airport in Iceland is in serious need of a restructuring to improve flow (lines for different flights intermingled; same for food lines; plenty of bathrooms but had long lines because signs were insufficient;"
Pros: "the flight was only a little delayed"
Cons: "you had to buy meals and the ear phones on economy flights"
Pros: "the water bottle on boarding the aircraft and multiple offers for rehydrating. the crew was very professional and friendly"
Cons: "absolute chaos on boarding in Iceland. no room to sit and no method to boarding"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to weather. Understandable and glad the airline chose safety first. Unfortunately the terminal was not equiped to handle that many passengers waiting for departures. There was no where to sit and had to sit on the floor for over four hours. May not be a big deal for some but at age 62 I had difficulty getting comfortable for the remaining flight. Denise"
Cons: "No complimentary food or snacks on a 6 hour flight? I've never heard of this before. I've had snacks on even a 2 hour flight with other airlines. This is especially unacceptable and inconsiderate considering that due to the airline's carelessness passengers who had a connecting flight (same airline) arrived to the layover later than scheduled with only 30 mins to spare we had no time to pick up food. Only to use the restroom. So my boyfriend and I were forced to spend ~$12 on a soggy ham and cheese "baguette" and pringles on the flight. Service and attentiveness was subpar. Landing was disastrous and would have been traumatizing if it was my first time flying. I along with surrounding passengers nearly jolted out of our seats and had to brace ourselves as the wheels bounced off the ground trying to graze the pavement."
Pros: "Entertainment was ok"
Cons: "Food for purchase, expensive as in the terminal and plane It's a good idea to bring your own food Boarding was a real mess. No organization"
Pros: "I love the fact that you can watch any of the movies and tv shoes for free."
Cons: "The boarding process was a free for all, with a number of people confused about where the flight was headed. We were almost an hour late taking off. I was also supposed to be seated in the emergency exit row, and when I boarded the plane I discovered that I was moved to a different row."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight attendants were friendly and made sure that the passengers were ready for take off and landings (both of these areas were a problem on the last airline on which I flew)."
Pros: "Long flight but my husband and I had three seats to ourselves (both ways) and that really helps."
Cons: "Boarding was suppose to start at 4:10 but didn't happen until 4:40. Our flight was suppose to leave at 5. We ended up arriving a half hour late to Newerk. When you're on Icelandic time in the states, and you have to wait in line at customs, a half hour delay makes a difference."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Boarding was hectic as many gates were crammed into a small space"
Pros: "Touchdown at EWR and disembarking."
Cons: "Reykjavik is an absolute sin... small airport for amount of traffric with VERY limited seating available for "between flight" layovers ... "cattle call" approach to boarding... at least a dozen empty seats on flight that could have alleviated "3 across" seating and flight attendants would not move anyone. Very disappointed."
Cons: "Had to pay for food , tv stopped working mid flight , no organization for boarding on to plane"
Pros: "Icelandair is a great airline. The staff is friendly and helpful and the planes are clean and comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment could be better."
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable, good service, seats have enough room."
Cons: "BOARING. It was 3 or 4 flights shcedule at time with 15-30 min difference. Very crowded! We even couldn't reach our gate without pushing other people around, MESS! And we waited for boarding our bus."
Pros: "That I was able to get off."
Cons: "•Flight crew were so strict and stern. It's like their smile was for sale too along with everything else. •Boarding fight to Newark International airport took almost 45 min because a novice was placed to handle and IMMENSE line of passengers boarding alone. He was clearly nervous. •On the plane there was a lack of entertainment, the only films available were intended for children. Music was "unavailable"."
