Pros: "Great helpful flight crew"
Cons: "Checking our bag was a nightmare. All bag check-in was at kiosk which we couldn't use because we had to pay to check our bag. Had to find a desk in another terminal to check bag, then pay an another desk for said checked bag. We saved money by ticketing this way but we almost missed our flight"
Pros: "Crew was perfectly fine."
Cons: "Departure time was delayed due to over crowding in Zurich airport. Info on connecting flights and transfer requirements was insufficient, no offer to help those with tight connections, e.g., by trying to seat them at front of plane or help them get off faster. Missed connecting flight as a result!!"
Pros: "Crew as usual very kind"
Cons: "They put me on stand by because flight was overbooked"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Flight was a bit delayed"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Good movie selection. Pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Six hour delay. They gave us $20 Franc voucher for food but in the airport a latte is 7.50 so 20 did not even buy a bowl of soup."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Nice crew, plenty of food and snacks available. Good wine."
Cons: "Delayed flight, almost missed connection, told on first flight had to check carry-on then they lost our luggage on the connection, cramped seats, but i did pay for the cheapest seats"
Cons: "We arrived more than a half hour late, and considering this was about 4 am, this was significant. The guy in the middle seat was tall and had to speard his legs intruding on my space."
Pros: "The approach into Venice airport was to the NE so the flight path gave a perfect areal tour of venice out the right side of the plane."
Pros: "Everything was just dandy!"
Pros: "Best food I've ever had on an airline! Great flight. Not too full."
Cons: "Arm rests didn't lift all the way up on the plane."
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful. The wine was free and each seat had it's own screen with a good assortment of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "The food could be much better. Although coming from Sicily it's tough to compare."
Cons: "I still haven't arrived yet, missed the big flight by two minutes, no help from the crew, had to overnight in Zürich. Trying again today..."
Pros: "Swiss Airlines Saff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "the seat did not reclined, it was broke. travel with my wife on different seat my wife had a broken knee and they assigned a seat smack in the middle of the isle and she told me she almost past out because she could not move I had a passenger in the back that was kicking my seat every few minutes and I woke up every time I went to sleep"
Pros: "Swiss Lounge, food excellent."
Cons: "everything was very good"
Pros: "The plane wasn't totally booked and very clean"
Pros: "The plane we were on between Zurich and Copenhagen was comfortable and modern for such a short trip. This was a stark contrast to the old SAS airplane we flew in the opposite direction as a Swiss flight. The staff on the plane were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "We missed our original flight due to connection difficulties. We tried to hold this flight (the return flight that we had paid for in our round trip ticket) but when we arrived at the airport we were informed that they had sold our seats. We had to pay $250 USD to fly standby (and "reissue" the tickets that we had already paid for) on a flight that was oversold by at least 6, and we heard other passengers also being told their tickets were sold. Their customer service for the ticket change and the phone calls made before hand where they promised to hold our tickets, were so disappointing, it was like dealing with any US based airline. We won't be flying with them again."
Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "Swiss service relayable"
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"
Cons: "The gate was changed without significant announcement"
Pros: "I liked the staff and the chocolate"
Cons: "I didn't like the meal much and the lighting was too bright most of the time."
Pros: "Friendly service. Efficient. More leg room than most other airlines. Decent entertainment. Decent food."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Did not get to make this flight either. Horrible."
Pros: "The staff was very attentive."
Pros: "See below"
Cons: "We got to Rome airport 4 hours before to not miss flight! They booked us with 45 min to connect in Zurich. Then flight from Rome kept getting delayed with no explanations. We got to Zurich with 30 minutes to go. We literally ran to get to gate E. We got no help from Swiss employees and got to our gate with 10 min before flight. They said gate was closed. Went to transfer desk, next flight was next day at 1 pm. Missed very important meeting at work that I had planned around for months. Very upset and disappointed. Felt they could have helped us a lot more and got us on our flight."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, planes was very clean, the food was excellent and the staff was friendly."
Pros: "My luggage was lost for two days on the flight from Tampa to Zurich and/or Zurich to Naples. It was delivered by the end of the second day. But before that I found out I could not choose seats online for any of the Swiss Air Flights to and from Europe. It "had to be done" at the airport. Why? Never explained. I called Travis International, the agency booking the flights. Totally useless conversation resulted with no explanation."
Cons: "The Flights were longer than other airlines taking similar routes. The routing was absurd. To go from Naples to Munich and then turn around and go to Zurich before the 10 hour trip to Tampa made no sense. Lousy routing and customer service. Eidelswiss apparently is a lower-end branch of Swiss Air. My airfare was as much as and more than my other friends who flew Delta, for instance. Flights on other airlines did not take 10 hours from Zurich to Tampa. I lost the ticket receipts and could not claim anything for the items I bought to try get through the two full days without luggage, even though the airlines has a record of the claim. Outrageous!!"
Cons: "I'm only 5 months pregnant, barely showing, and the seat tray nearly didn't fit in the down position! So uncomfortable. Also the chicken sandwich was gross. The bread was gritty and dry."
Pros: "Passengers completely ignored the commands of the crew and crew was unable to take control of the crowd (passengers refused to follow crew's multiple demands to sit down during the high turbulence, finally crew gave up to force passengers to take a sit). Several times, standing passengers fell on the sitting ines. When at the end of the flight, the issue was pointed out to the captain and supervising flight attendant, both became aggressively defensive to the point of being rude."
Pros: "It was quick and the crew was really nice!"
Cons: "No organization for boarding. It didn't matter what class you are in, everyone boards at the same time. business class o. The plane we were on was just the front seats....they were not larger seats."
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, as a result i missed the next flight to Washington DC. My whole schedule was messed up as i had to fly through Chicago. My luggage was lost and i only received it 2 days later. Will file the complaint."
Pros: "Flight was good and comfortable"
Pros: "Once boarded we took off pretty quickly, crew were extremely nice, food was great"
Cons: "no entertainment at all."
Cons: "Seats in Economy are too tight. There's no room to move, and if the person in front of you leans back, the seat is inches from your face. In an emergency, the instructions are to lean forward with your head on your knees. This maneuver is impossible."
Cons: "Didn't find anything."
Pros: "Crew was very nice & humble"
Cons: "Food quality could be better it was tasteless very low standards, & boarding crew in Chicago or in Mumbai needs training because they don't want to give you a choice for food or the seat From Zurich to India & they runout off Nonveg food & crew was telling they have only veg take it or leave it samething Zurich to Chicago if the boarding crew do write thing then this could be avoided ."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seating was very tight, confining."
Pros: "Crew was sympathetic to the awful seats"
Cons: "Just fly had access to the worst seats and we could not change them."
Pros: "Enjoyed the food. On demand entertainment. Beverage service."
Cons: "Despite paying for extra leg room I somehow needed more. Not Swiss Airs fault, but I know better for next time."
Pros: "Professional Staff; best food on international flight ever."
Pros: "Flight attendants were sympathetic"
Cons: "The first flight was cancelled after we sat on the plane for over an hour. We all had to wait in line at the transfer desk. Then our second flight attempt- boarding was awful, total chaos. The flight was delayed because boarding was so long. Then once we landed late, there was an issue deboarding the flight with the stairs and we were stuck for 40 mins for this process."
Pros: "Good staff, food, service"
Cons: "No leg room for us tall people!"
Pros: "That I was going to Florence."
Cons: "The food. Very artificial in its appearance and flavor. And that I was so tired from not being able to sleep during the extremely uncomfortable overnight flight from Boston to Zurich."
Pros: "mtl to Zuric was t"
Pros: "Friendly crew, great access to a variety refreshments, robust entertainment library."
Cons: "No suggestions."
Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"
Pros: "Reasonable space in economy class seats"
Cons: "Staff hurrying us up 40 minutes before departing and threatening to take our bags out of the plane in case we didn’t board then. I had to leave my coffee and run."

Pros: "Crew was fantastic, seats and entertainment was great. Very good food choices."

Cons: "Seats not great for such a long flight."
Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding needs improvement"
Cons: "Faultless handling of weather delay, causing missed connection and flight transfer. A well oiled machine, thank you."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Pros: "The service"

Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"
Pros: "Face recognition was amazing"
Cons: "Too hot on plane"
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."
Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."
Cons: "You are almost always late!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"
Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."
Pros: "Professional, welcoming and very friendly crew, well-maintained aircraft, comfortable seat and good food. Keep up the good work, KLM."
Cons: "Not much to comment on here."
Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
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."
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."
Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Pros: "The entertainment system was good and the crew excellent. The person in front of me did not put their seat back which made my trip more comfortable. Loading and unloading was orderly and efficient."
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "Stewards dis perfect job"
Pros: "Overall Austrian was fine. Smaller plane and people were professional."
Cons: "Certainly don’t expect the luxury of SE Asian or Middle Eastern airlines"
Pros: "On time & clean"
Cons: "Can’t really say"
Pros: "Why the 3 hours delay?"
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "Entertainment players"
Cons: "Organization when boarding (a line vs. a mob of people from all different boarding groups) not organized at all. Ended up leaving about 45 minutes late."
Pros: "Food, in particular the vienna coffee choices were imprewsive."
Cons: "Overhead space on plane was very limited."
Pros: "Seat size was decent, not like us airlines, there’s actually space for you knees."
Pros: "Almost every thing was very good"
Cons: "My selection in pasta... was not bad but it was bit dry other than that no complains....thanks for save trip."
Pros: "Everything Fromt the crew and service. To checking in and deplaning was awesome"
Pros: "Great food. Exceptional service. Clean airplane and toilets. The whole flight was smooth and comfortable. And we were in coach!!!"
Cons: "All was great."
Cons: "They lost my bag and refused to deliver it to my house once it was found. It is still at the airport"
Pros: "Efficient boarding from bus. Friendly crew. Offered soft drink and coffee as well as choice of 2 snacks. No entertainment as such a short flight. Clean, modern plane."
Pros: "Friendly staff, efficient"
Cons: "I didn’t understand that we got no baggage allowance with our tickets. When I looked on the website it appeared that star alliance members got the usual free luggage. Apparently it was a “lit” fare & we didn’t. It would have been worth it to get the next class of fare"
Cons: "There was plenty of space, and so I rven had a chance to catch some sleep on the transatlantic flight. But Uktimately, unless you are travelling in luxury, transatlantic flights are awful."
Cons: "I wanted to buy an checked-in luggage, but Austrian site did not worked properly, repeatedly gave an error message. I ended up buying it at the counter desk, in the airport, at a much higher price."
Pros: "The flight was basic service to get me from one place to another. It was completely average and not quite the Austrian service I have previously known."
Cons: "See previous comments"
Cons: "Our flights there were postponed causing us to miss out connecting flights, we rescheduled with a different airline. The same thing happened coming home. Austrian was a complete disappointment going there and back."
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendant. (I think his name was Stephen?)"
Cons: "Plane took off and landed late.. Few amenities near the gate. Odd procedure to have everyone go through security into waiting area."
Pros: "The pilots are very skilled and keeps you informed about every single “bump” during the flight. Flight attendents are very nice, pleasant, polite and helpful."
Pros: "The direct flight' and the comfortable seat"
Pros: "Good place for the legs"
Pros: "6 hours delay, first deplaning due to mechanical failure, 2nd deplaning due to electrical storm. Missed my connection to Asia requiring total new bookings and expense. Never flying AA again."
Pros: "Plane left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Rude gate agent. Small seats, no leg room, very crowded together. Clearly a budget airline - should be marketed as such."
Cons: "Boarded via stairs, requiring going down stairs to the tarmac, then up the boarding stairs, carrying our bags."
Cons: "Please change food, enough of pasta every time."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing, gate was changed at the last minute without the passengers being warned"
Cons: "5 hour delay. One staff member said there would be a delay, the second said there was no delay and after a couple hours the delay was confirmed. I was told the flight was full without the attendant even checking, flight was actually not even close to full. Nobody wanted to help and do their job, they just want to send you on your way."
Pros: "The pilot did a great job landing the plane in high winds."
Pros: "The flight was on time, and the attendents on Austrian engaging and charming crew"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Pros: "Staff are pleasant and competent."
Cons: "I could not pay for check-in baggages when I bough 4 tickets for 4 passengers. So I called the airline customer service, and they told me that the first check-in baggage is free. However, when we boarded the airplane on 9/5/2016, we were charged 30 Euros for each bag, a total of 120 Euros for 4 checked in bags of 4 passengers. This is unfair, and I would like it to be corrected if possible. Thanks."
Pros: "It was the best flight I've had and the best Pilot. Thank you, Corina Pauta"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the crew attentive. The movie selection was excellent and the entertainment system was excellent. The food was typical for what you get on transatlantic flights in economy."
Cons: "At the gate the boarding processes was very slow because there was only a single person checking the passports and the boarding passes of all passengers. Surprisingly, this airline also could not provide a plastic bag for our checked in child seat, which is standard on other airlines."
Pros: "Plane was on time, boarding was fast and easy, great crew"
Cons: "Food was terrible"
Pros: "Never again with KAYAK. Sorry."
Pros: "This is one of the most comfortable flights that I undertook this year - I have done more than 20 flights this year."
Pros: "Well worth the upgrade!"
Pros: "Exelent fly, service"
Pros: "Crew, tidy and clean."
Cons: "Food could be more interesting."
Pros: "Everything was fine. Flight on time, smooth connection c nice crew."
Cons: "I was not allowed to bring my small carry on suitcase on board just because. I had a small backpack that was allowed and the rest was sent with the rest of the suitcases although my connection flight was get short after the first flight."
Pros: "It was very comfortable flight, seats overall, and service. EveryONE was very helpful. I really enjoyed this trip, and for sure with all my chances I'll take Austrian airlines. Thank you for your work and patient. I wish all airlines were as good as you are."
Pros: "As many choices as you could want for entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was the best crew that I've ever encountered. They all smiled and were genuinely happy and helpful. They made the flight so much better. I also enjoyed the movies on the flight."
Pros: "flight quality, food quality"
Cons: "seat discomfort, 1h delay in flight"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful. Entertainment had plenty of choices."
Cons: "The seats were very hard. It was very uncomfortable sitting that long I’m those seats"
Cons: "Seats and spaces seemed a tad smaller and less comfortable than other airlines"
Pros: "The movie section and food were very good"
Cons: "The temperature of the flight was out of control it was very hot for the full 9 hr there was something wrong with the plane and the crew was not addressing it."
Cons: "SFO-Copenhagen was cancelled. Only hint for that came from Kayak which I didn't even use for booking (I used Flyus). Sas and Flyus didn't notify us and sas customer service had to actually use 5 min to verify that flight was cancelled after we called them. That left some poor rebooking options. Anyway, I am very disappointed how Sas didn't notify us. It would have been even nastier if we had got to the airport before realizing that flight was cancelled."
Pros: "For a middle seat, it wasn’t bad"
Cons: "The seat I selected was changed. I selected 45C and was assigned 54 E Upon check-in. Why? An aisle seat vs middle seat when I paid full faire is unacceptable. Also it was not made clear that I would have had to pay to check luggage. $120??!!!! I always carry on and this could have been easily avoided by not bringing gifts. Again, $120?!!!!! On top of an $1100 flight? You have to be kidding me."
Pros: "service was great flight was on time luggage came on time"
Pros: "I have used Kayak for years without issue. This time I was flying SAS for the first time. The plane broke and so that was the first huge delay SAS had terrible customer service. They reminded me several times that I was not a preferred customer and that I had bought my ticket through kayak. This is the reason they gave for lack of help. It was frustrating to say the least. I’m not sure how they expect to gain repeat customers if they treat first time customers like that."
Cons: "Everything. Our flight was delayed from our departing city because the plane was leaking water on the floor and they had to send in a special cleaning crew to try to stop it. We were not given the seats we pre picked months before when buying the ticket. The ac was broken for the first half of the flight. Then, we missed our connecting flight because of the first delay. Once we got onto a new connecting flight, it was also delayed and once again, we missed our last connecting flight and are not making it to our final destination today."
Pros: "The staff were ok"
Cons: "It’s the first time i try these low cost airlines, which sometimes they are not that cheap compared to others, no entertainment whatsoever, i wasn’t allowed for any check in luggage and the prices for ever peace was literally expensive ticket price was not that competitive"
Pros: "The 7 hr trip to Copenhagen was rough. The seats are too close together. My knees hit the seat in front of me even without reclining. When the seat in front of me reclined the tv screen was 6” away from my face. It was next to impossible to get out of the seat."
Cons: "The flight was more than one hour delayed."
Pros: "Not full. Kind crew."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Expensive rates on luggage"
Cons: "Crew not very friendly."
Pros: "Everything. Nothing ever goes wrong when I fly SAS which is why I seldom don't. And if something does go wrong their manners and spirits are high and they make sure everyone is still happy and comfortable. Best service in the airline industry."
Cons: "I like everything."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and on the cross continent part of our flight we had dinner and breakfast served. Lots of leg room."
Pros: "Nice planes with all the basics you need"
Cons: "Terrible food"
Pros: "Softest landing ever"
Cons: "Not much entertainment but a domestic flight"
Pros: "We were eventually rebooked in the class we paid for."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled with no notice. We were rebooked in economy class when we paid over $5,000 for business class tickets, and told we would "probably" receive a refund for the difference. after much prodding, asking and begging, we were finally rebooked in a flight on Lufthansa the same night. That airline was upset, though, because SAS did not call them or notify them that we had been switched to their airline."
Pros: "Easy kiosk check in, baggage drop off, good service."
Cons: "No advance discussion about emergency exit row seating requirements, and we were not allowed to even have a paperback book to read in this row. The flight was full and boarded, so not able to change seats."
Pros: "Good leg room. Tasty meals. A good variety of entertainment options."
Cons: "The SAS Supervisor at the gate permitted all preferred-level economy class ticketed passengers to board irrespective of the amount of their carry-on items - in some cases as many as three different items and many over-sized as per the measuring box located at the gate walkway, before conducting a bag-by-bag weight check on all the remaining economy ticketed passengers. Any carry-on item over 8 kgs was refused access to the airplane, and had to be unpacked at the gate in full view of other passengers to remove all electronic devices or breakable items, prior to being left with the gate agent to be placed on the plane as checked luggage. This procedure was conducted in an officious and highly non-customer friendly way, and was embarrassing to those passengers who had to "strip down" their single bag, in particular for female passengers who had overnight clothing and toiletries. A more practical and customer appropriate approach should replace such a draconian procedure."
Pros: "I had a window seat with a view of New York City as we flew North."
Cons: "The sound quality of the earphones was so poor that I could not understand most of the dialogue of the film that I watched."
Cons: "We paid $90 per checked bag. When we purchased our tickets we were never given an option to purchase luggage ahead of time, we were under the impression that luggage was included."
Cons: "The flight arrived an hour late."
Cons: "My 1st experience on SAS & everything was late: takeoff over an hour late, and upon arrival in CPH we were delayed again to exit the plane because they couldn't get the skyway door attached to the plane."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Good food. Movie/tv options were excellent."
Cons: "Didn't like that I had to order vegetarian food option in advance. I would forget to do so before the flight. Despite that, I was still able to eat most of the meal since there was salad, bread and dessert which was filling enough."
Cons: "TV's on our whole row did not work for the entire flight. Reading lamp was burned out. It would have been tolerable for a domestic flight but these amenities are needed and appreciated on a six hour flight!"
Pros: "Clean plane, decent food"
Cons: "1) on the plane, they announced a choice of two meals and I enquired why did I get one without choice and they told me the second choice was an option only for 'economy plus' !! That was a rude situation....I felt cheated and then insulted . 2) CPH - Nice : The breakfast or the included orange drink gave me an upset stomach and bad case of Hemorroides. 3) I accepted a glass of tomatoe juice and when I asked for a coke with my lunch , the stewardess said I had only right to one drink and would have to pay the rest....really ? - wine used to be free and now a glass costs $4...really ?? 4) I arrived at CPH airport for my transfer .. the flight was yet not on the screen but no one gave any instruction and no officials of any kind were around to enquire....a cleaning crew finally directed me correctly. 5) the security line in New York to board was ridiculously long...someone shouted to take off our smelly shoes...really ?? 6) most were directed to the right with four snaking unending lines to one security check . From time to time others were directly directed ed to the left where there was no line and option of two security checks. Half way through my wait , most were directed to the left and all who were 'late', were let out first to their gate. The whole experience before, on the plane and after was not worth the money...least of all a pleasant one."
Pros: "We got to sit in the emergency aisle so I can't complain about comfort. The staff was really friendly (although they were really rude on the way over 10 days earlier, so I guess we just got lucky with a nice crew for this one)."
Cons: "You only get one free non-alcoholic drink on this flight and that's really stingy for a 7+ hour a long haul. Drinks should be free on a long haul, especially non-alcoholic ones. There aren't any free small snacks like chips or peanuts. You have to pay for everything and the menu is exorbitantly over priced. It's a cheap and insulting customer strategy. They can save a few bucks in overhead on each customer this way, but they are losing money in the long run because I'll never book with them again due to their tawdry actions. I doubt I am alone."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and attentive. Seemed to care about the comfort of the passengers. Very inviting and gracious."
Cons: "Seats and pillows could be more comfortable. All airline food is not good so okay indicated above is above expectations."
Cons: "So many delays and lost luggage. The craziest was leaving Manchester. I was supposed to have 30 minutes after leaving security at Manchester and would have done if they hadn't decided to board early. That's ok but then we sat on the plane waiting which resulted in leaving later than the original time of departure and therefore a large run for my connection at Copenhagen. Was badly organized clearly."
Pros: "they were quick and apologetic"
Cons: "I did not like having to pay Euro 70 for my luggage at the AP. I do not recall ever having got the option to pay for my suitcase online when I booked my ticket. You guys need to make this more clear."
Pros: "Very friendly crew and staff of the center transfer."
Cons: "Planting was detained for an hour and I arrived late on a transfere. I forced to spend the night at the hotel and my patients were left without the surgeon on Monday. At the front desk I was not warned that the flight is delayed and I missed the opportunity to buy another ticket. When I asked before boarding the plane, I have time to transplant, I was told that all be good. But it was lie. I will try use another company."
Pros: "Boarding process was lovely, flight attendants were very nice, very smooth flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, somewhat small for a 6-foot+ tall person to fit, especially legroom"
Pros: "Flight was fine, service good, and our seat choice excellent."
Cons: "We left an iPad on board in Copenhagen and found that there was no way to inform SAS!"
Pros: "I arrived alive...."
Cons: "Lost my luggage... can't even track it or give me any sense where it is or if it will be returned. My vacation is ruined and I have to wait 3 weeks before I can request minimal compensation. I'm frustrated and angry, and get little help. Everyone is sorry... but no answers. Never will fly SAS again"
Pros: "Boarded in a downpour, crew got us on board quickly through a rear door. Unfortunately, weather caused a significant delay, but who can control the weather? :-)"
Cons: "After purchasing ticket in December 2015, was placed on stand-by when arriving in Hamburg."
Cons: "Business class ticket and traveled just like economy. Never advised when booking no business class. Boarding was like a stampede."
Cons: "That I didn't make it to Chicago the day I planned. My first leg had computer issues in Rome which pushed the flight back 4 hours which then made me miss my connecting flight. Had to stay a night in Copenhagen and fly out at 1540 the next day."
Cons: "Because the airport was under construction, the area to wait to board was very barren and without bathrooms. We had to take a very crowded bus to the airplane."
Cons: "Crew at check-in at ARN extremely unhelpful. Got conflicting advice on how to check in my back pack. The whole chaos resulted in the fact that my back pack never arrived in CPH. Nobody helped me much at CPH airport as well. I had to personally go to CPH airport to pick up my luggage the next day. No compensation was offered. I was really disturbed."
Pros: "I arrived a little more than an hour ahead of the flight (traffic delay), but security lines were very short and there was still time to get to the gate well ahead of departure if I had been given the opportunity. However, there were no agents at the counter; and a nearby representative said they had left two hours before flight."
Cons: "When I called SAS before the flight departed, I was offered the option to rebook for an extra $1,300. Since I wanted to think about my options, I was told I could decide later that evening and still do that. When I tried to call a few hours later, their offices were closed (8 pm)and by the next day my return flight had also been cancelled. This seems to me like a budget airline these days."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Water and coffee are free."
Cons: "I do not like that having to pay for snacks and if there is no onboard entertainment, I would prefer there to be wifi."
Pros: "Entertainment system and choice of movies was great."
Cons: "Seats have become to small and crowded together. A new plane but it looks like the last inches were taken to compress the coach seats closer together."
Pros: "Crew was OK"
Cons: "Check in Process in Milan Malpensa was chaotic at best! Did not have a good back up plan in place when the plane coming to Malpensa did not come due to maintenance."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Food quality"
Cons: "At least give a glass of water."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, seats were ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost 2 hours, there was no explanation, just an apology."
Cons: "My luggage was lost for almost 2 weeks."
Pros: "The crew was OK, the seats had generous leg space."
Cons: "The flight could have been on time. not only was the plane late arriving, but then the didn't take off for another hour! have never flown an airline that refuses to take off because of a little rain.... :-("
Pros: "this flight was supposed to be cancelled and refunded i never heard anything back from kayak nor brussel airlines after sending them our family members death certificate!"
Cons: "this flight was supposed to be cancelled and refunded i never heard anything back from kayak nor brussel airlines after sending them our family members death certificate!"
Pros: "Good Staff, Good Service, On Time Departure and Arrival"
Cons: "The ticket price was so expensive"
Pros: "All was planned, no surprises, on time and no hassles"
Cons: "Keep it as it is. No need to fix what is not broken. Just reduce the very expensive prices that Brussels Airlines charge for its economy class tickets"
Pros: "The crew was very cool"
Cons: "The food was ok"
Cons: "I am handicap, I travel with a scooter. We let them know months in advance and still they did not plan or assist. My scooter was not brought up in Brussels or DC, I refused to leave the plane in DC until they finally brought it to plane. They sat me in row 38...I can only walk a few feet so the airline failed in every aspect...epuc fail. I will never fly Brussels airlines again."
Pros: "comfortable leg space"
Pros: "So so"
Cons: "But connecting flight is just 30 minutes delayed schedule because of airline benefits. I have to run the gate and I can make it but I heard 2 passengers didn't. I didn't hear this situation. When I ask staffs how about connecting flight to Nice, staffs just told me your flight is ok."
Pros: "We were delayed boarding slightly, delayed sat on a steaming gate shuttle then sat on the tarmac for a couple of hours while storms passed. But the crew gave regular updates, provided food and water, allowed us to walk about. It was as plesent as such a situation could be."
Pros: "La atención, a diferencia de otras aerolíneas europeas se nota la sonrisa y gran atención."
Cons: "A la hora del despegue molestan mucho con las cosas."
Pros: "I found that the meal served was of particularly good quality and tasty"
Cons: "They didn't served me food"
Pros: "Timeliness, crew and seat space.."
Cons: "I had problems checking in online and never could assign seats.. had to wait to check in at the booth and got random seats so my husband and I got seperated seats.."
Pros: "Nice and easy"
Cons: "There was a long-ish and poorly organised layover in Luanda, which involved the flight crew individually identifying the carry-on luggage on the plane so as to ensure no one who had disembarked had left anything behind. This was literally done bin by bin by a crew member shouting down the aisle, "Who's is this brown bag? Who has a grey Longchamp!!!???" This is not something I have ever seen before and it took ages. The cabin also became very hot during the layover, which cause a 40 minute delayed arrival in Kinshasa."
Cons: "Crew was rude, including even the pilot, who was unbelievably rude."
Pros: "Fair amount on the seating room. Polite staff helpful, on time. good value for money"
Cons: "Plane seem a bit old lights would flicker randomly."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and plane was comfortable."
Cons: "There were no free food or beverage options."
Pros: "Good leg space and went on time."
Cons: "Cup of coffee would be nice but this you need to buy and this is STUPID Expensive"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and friendly. Departure and arrival was on time."
Cons: "Very narrow and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The pilot was good and made a smooth landing. The seat was comfortable enough because I had a pillow."
Cons: "My checked luggage got lost on a direct flight. That is unacceptable."
Pros: "I enjoyed everything but"
Cons: "....the morning snack and audio of the movies. Also, wifi should be available (even if it's an additional cost)"
Cons: "Boarding late. Good for sale-not even a cup of water free, staff rude, there is no entertainment"
Pros: "I had an aisle seat."
Cons: "No entertainment provided, except for the option to connect to their wi-fi. However, if you didn't have a wi-fi capable device, you were screwed. The food was disgusting - the worst I have ever experienced on a flight."
Cons: "Poor customer service."
Cons: "charging for water on flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed at the gate due to bad weather. Missed my connecting flight. After a 4 hour wait with customer service, my flight was rescheduled for a departure in 5 hours. I have no access to my suitcase. Prepaid hotel will not reimburse for no show. Such a mess."
Cons: "Mocarella and tomatoes wrap was not tasty. Tomatoes seemed to be old."
Pros: "Excellent service and space for economy class."
Cons: "This is a low cost airline. No food, no entertainment, At least the crew was polite."
Pros: "Sufficient seat space in a window seat. Excellent customer service on board, compared to any US service provider."
Cons: "Boarding. Unorganized and not very customer friendly."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Horrible food if you opt for Halal. Imagine having to eat the same thing from start to end in an international flight. Major turbulence, got sick to the stomach when I got home. I have to admit my overall experience was very very poor."
Pros: "Leg room and food on board was pretty good. The flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The competence and effectiveness of the boarding crew was deplorable. Everyone looked and acted like it was their first day on the job. If I have a choice, I don't think I will ever fly this airline again. Brussels airport is also a confusing mess. You just wait in line after line with no clear direction. They left one of my bags behind in Brussels as well, and I have yet to receive an update on where it is."
Pros: "The service was very very professional"
Cons: "Completely chaotic service."
Cons: "I would like a survey about my experience flying FROM JFK TO MONROVIA on Dec. 5 & 6! I have decided that this was my last voluntary flying experience with Brussels Airlines!"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the crew was friendly. Legroom was very good."
Cons: "The fact that they went on strike and left us with no one at the gate when we arrived or no one to explain what is going on. Very difficult / stressful time when in a foreign country."
Pros: "leg space is quite big"
Cons: "the food was poor - Cold Pasta salad"
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "Impossible to check in online if you have a visa. Avoid at all costs seats in row 15. The first row in coach has 3 seats and be row behind has 4 meaning that you are 4 people sharing 3 screens and seat pockets. No room to put your legs under the seat in front of you because they are not aligned with the seats in front. I fly all the time and have never seen this. I am short and has absolutely no room for myself or even my iPad and headphones. Horrible experience. Never flying with Brussels airlines on a transatlantic again!"
Cons: "Rows are very close together. We were packed in like sardines. Stewardesses prevent people from going to the toilets in the back when they are serving, and do not allow access to the toilet in the front. Not "user-friendly"."
Cons: "* No information was provided to the passengers about an additional delay of the flight after the original 5 hour delay. * No compensation was offered for the inconvenience of a delayed baggage by 2 days. * My family is definitely not going to fly with Brussels Airlines after the experience we had."
Pros: "Great food and nice crew. They had good tv shows."
Cons: "I don't have anything to complain about."
Pros: "It was a short flight, so it was appropriate."
Cons: "No free food and no entertainment. Boarded late."
Pros: "Due to my husbands frequent flyer status, we were able to upgrade coach seats to premium free of charge - which afforded priority boarding and more comfortable seats - although, there was not much difference in legroom or general space. This flight was not full, so I had an empty seat next to me - always a good thing on a long flight. Lots of movies and entertainment available to fill up the hours. Served food and drinks constantly (3 meals plus, if I remember correctly) but the food was pretty bad. One of the bathrooms was a generous size, which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. They separated out groups but did not make clear where each group was to go, which caused unnecessary jam ups. Stewardess on this flight that served my section was rather grumpy and unhelpful. Seat in front of me was broken so it leaned way back into my lap, making it difficult to eat or read on my e-reader. I had a premium seat, but there did not seem to be any difference in leg room or the size of the seat than normal coach. Although there was several meals - the food was horrible. Best to take your own aboard. We were delayed getting off the ground, having to sit on the plane for a while before take off. We landed over an hour late."
