They lost all of our luggage, business class was not comfortable, food was mediocre
Cons: "I fell sick and my doctor advised against flying. Tried calling Swiss Air and JustFly.com: 6 calls back and forth and 7 hours on hold, no help. Finally got advised on driving to the airport to make the flight change at the Swiss Air counter at O’Hare. The representative told me to bring a note from doctor to switch flights. I did the next day. The same representative looked me in the eye after advising the day before and said there’s nothing she could do. Why make an elderly sick person drive to the airport again if you know already you cannot help??Absolutely terrible experience, no help from the airline or travel agency. Total loss of the full price of the ticket."
Pros: "flight itself"
Cons: "delayed departure EXTREMELY LATE LUGGAGE HANDLING IN BRUSSELS, more than 1 hour after arrival for SKI's to be delivered !!"

Cons: "We had a huge delay"
Pros: "Delicious Easter eggs Beautiful interior design of cabin and seats Roomy"
Cons: "Missed flight. Misplaced checked bag. Filed complaint with Swiss."
Pros: "Friendly agents . Speak very good English. Swiss airlines serves breakfast croissants and beverages for a short flight without a charge"
Cons: "The airline fix the booking problem because my trip was from Zurich to Brussels to Washington DC to Austin and went I print my boarding passes only show to Brussels. The booking agent didn’t complete all the way in the computer. I am thankful that I had my original paper and Swiss airlines fix it"
Pros: "Responsive excellent crew."

Pros: "i ordered and paid for business class but the return flight from israel had no business class Had a miserable flighIshould be refunded"

Cons: "Boston -Zurich, the most uncomfortable seat possible. I am 5’2 and I barely fit.... Seats are way more comfortable on European flights."
Pros: "Swiss air Business is an excellent choice. I will fly this Airline again. It was extremely comfortable, service was excellent, and the flight crew made up our lost time in the air. We had a tight connection and they waited for us."
Pros: "plane and crew were fine. Didn’t use any entertainment."
Cons: "checked baggage fee at airport exorbitant."
Cons: "We didn't fly to Zurich. Instead, we flew from Berlin to Frankfurt to San Francisco to San Diego. Although the alternate airlines did a fine job and we had nice flights thanks to them, we only found out about the change when we arrived at the airport and it caused us multiple inconveniences throughout the day. Our flight from Berlin to Zurich was scheduled to board at 9am, so we left our accommodations at 6:30am so we could arrive at the airport around 7am. It was a rushed, hectic morning and we stayed up late preparing for it the best we could. When we arrived and found out our flight was canceled, we learned our new flight wouldn't board until 11am. So we rushed for no reason and had to spend a considerable amount of extra time at the airport that we could have spent enjoying coffee one last time at a local cafe or something. We planned to fly straight from Zurich to San Diego so we could participate in an interview for our Global entry application (which you can only do when arriving in the US from an international flight). Because we had a brief layover in San Francisco instead, we had no time for this and were unable to do the interview when we arrived in San Diego because it was a domestic flight. The change also caused issues with our luggage. We're not used to checking bags when we fly OR flying internationally with layovers in the US, so we asked the agent at the Swiss desk in Berlin how it would would with both of those aspects in our travel with the itinerary changes. The agent told us our luggage would follow us all the way to San Diego and we didn't have to worry about it. However, we learned once we got to San Diego that our bags were left in San Francisco because apparently we were supposed to pick them up and recheck them, but we had no idea. It was a huge bummer and we wish we would have had more control over our itinerary that day. People book certain flights for certain reasons and need to have a say when their flights need to change."
Pros: "Dinner was excellent. Staff very friendly. Bathroom toiletries (facial spray and hand cream) appreciated."
Cons: "Seats are pretty tight (lucky if you don't have one of the metal boxes in your foot space)."
Cons: "They put us in different seats. My 7 year old and 3year old were all sitting separately and we could not switch with anyone. The air hostesses were not as helpful as other airlines."
Pros: "The attendants were very pleasant and the food delicious"
Cons: "A bit cramped in economy"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, smaller aircraft"
Cons: "French unions"
Cons: "Boarding is a mess There is no order at all That delays the flight"
Pros: "Swiss flight zrh to ord was great! Great crew, excellent food and service, comfortable seating, great entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Fast flight and crew was amazing."
Cons: "Seats are terrible. Food is just ok, could me better, I remember 2012 when I was flying first time with Swiss (same route), food was excellent and seats were much more comfortable. I’m thinking to get back on Turkish Airlines although the trip is much longer, they are much better in both above mentioned segments."
Cons: "The boarding process is very uncomfortable as the passengers are asked to board the plane without any specific order, regardless of where they’re sitting, instead of boarding them by groups."
Cons: "The service was not great which surprised me for swiss. The flight attendant was absolutely not into work. The seats supposed to work.. wasn’t .. we had to switch the seats with no help and with the lights off. Awful .. of course they didn’t noticed so they didn’t woke me up for the breakfast. (And I’ve been asking for). Maybe was bad luck but that’s really ridiculous. During the flight they didn’t brought water or something we had to call them."
Cons: "no light over my seat and I reported it before the plane took off. the plane was old, the entertainment system not as expected - really poor"
Pros: "Boardoing 7h10; 7h25 announcement we would arrive on time 8h50. No further announcement, late departure. Arrival 9h25. - mo explanation. Luggage only at 9h50"
Cons: "The flight was 1:20 hours delay so it arrived at midnight to Vienna. Even they refused to accept all the cabin bags on board. Very disspointed with Swiss. I’m flying twice time a week and I never experience so frustating experience like Swiss Air"
Cons: "flight and luggage deliver delayed. Missed meeting as a result"
Pros: "It's such a short flight that to me the experience is pretty insignificant. I liked that it was on time and the rest was very average for what I expected in a 45 minutes flight"
Cons: "I would have loved a video"
Cons: "Lack of screen for watching movies."
Pros: "Nothing because the airplane seats were terribly uncomfortable!"

Cons: "I had a lot damaged luggage!"
Pros: "Loved the entertainment. Food was great!"
Cons: "There was no indication of what line went where while in the boarding process. Nobody told us that we needed to get a blue stamp (??) on our boarding ticket, for what I still don't know. So then we needed to get in ANOTHER line and get the stamp and then stand in line AGAIN just to get on the plane! For being Swiss you'd think you'd have this part down AT LEAST! Boarding by seat number would have been a better idea. Everybody was all over the place getting their bags stored above."
Our flight was canceled and had to stand in line for 3 hours and 11 minutes to get on a flight to Florence Italy for the same day. They couldn’t get us to Genoa for 36 hours and had to go through Rome no direct flight. We will be contacting customer service for compensation for a hotel stay in Florence and train tickets to reach our destination Genoa Italy.
Over 3 hours of delay without any assistance from klm
Cons: "KLM lost my suitcase and did not deliver it until three days later... They refused to compensate me for having delivered the bag with broken articles inside (A pair of Rayban Wayfarers!)"
Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."
Pros: "Reclinable seats."
Cons: "The food!! The lights could be dimmed as it was a night flight."
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 helpful and food was very good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on the flight from Vancouver to Amsterdam and this on top of a two hour delay in taking off which led us to have to literally run to our gate in Amsterdam to make the connection to Mumbai"
Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"
Cons: "Head support for 6 feet plus people on seats would be good"
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Cons: "The plane was very hot"
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"
Cons: "Long haul flight made pleasant by KLM"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat but it’s only a 1 hour flight so not a big deal."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "Crew was excellent -kind nice and very attentive"
Cons: "Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up"
Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"
Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "The attention and service!! Excellent. It was my birthday and KLM the head purser surprised me with 2 bottles of bubbles and a handwritten birthday card KlM and the crew of this flight thank you very much !"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."
Cons: "Despised the cold temperature and cold draft in world business even with all vents shut off...gave me a head cold. Boarding was disorganized. There was no sense of direction; ergo, everyone was jumping in."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."
Pros: "expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy"

Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"
Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."
Pros: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Pros: "The last two times we connected in Amsterdam to Humberside our luggage was delayed. This time it wasn’t. The simple things give the greatest satisfaction"
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: "Crew was very helpful.food"
Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."
Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"
Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
Pros: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "The staff and crew"
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."
The flight crew was very accommodating and the seat was comfortable.
Pros: "They were nice, rushed through beverages, but since it was a short flight that's understandable."
Cons: "The top cushion on the seats could be less bulky."
Pros: "The flight attendants worked hard to make the flight a good experience."
Pros: "Seating and leg room much better than Ryan Air!"
Cons: "Pre landing food was not edible , otherwise good"
Cons: "The flight took off late, arrived late and we missed our connection to Salt Lake City. We had to change terminals and they were on the opposite side of the airport. Had to spend the night and have not yet started with Aer Lingus to get some satisfaction."
Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "I liked the fact that Aer Lingus screwed up so badly that I got to fly United back to Chicago instead of Aer Lingus."
Cons: "They could have gotten us to and from our destination on time. Ten hours late coming in and 24 hours late getting out. They could not have lost our luggage for 5 days. The logistics people haven't a clue. I feel sorry for the customer service people who have to work for this organization."
Pros: "the seats were comfortable, boarding systematic and the crew were polite and helpful"
Pros: "Crew were amazing. The cabin had the new lighting system which was an unexpected bonus, love it."
Cons: "Everything was simply perfect"
Pros: "Seat was fine ! I was very thirsty and no free water.."
Cons: "Free drink/ water !!!"
Pros: "Pilots were very smooth with the controls, especially on landing unlike Ryanair!"
Pros: "Left on time."
Cons: "Everything else. Utterly confusing answers to questions."
Cons: "No food or even water boarding on time but delayed for no reason"
Pros: "US Customs and Immigration pre-clearance in Dublin allowed me to avoid filling out a landing card and dealing with long immigration lines at JFK. Very good selection of films and TV shows via on board entertainment system. Food decent."
Cons: "Selection of amenities at Dublin Airport in the US pre-clearance area is poor."
Pros: "Crew outstanding"
Cons: "Boarding is outside."
Cons: "Delayed as always"
Pros: "Aer Lingus flight was great - comfortable seats, good entertainment options with movies an music and good food!"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Arrive a day later no sleep to LOST MISSING bags for both myself and my daughter."
Pros: "I made it on the plane because they decided to delay the fight for the ones of us that almost missed our flight so to the flight from Dublin being late."
Cons: "The Food!"
Pros: "Very pleasant, competent, attentive, efficient crew."
Cons: "I did not like the delay in departing for Frankfurt-- missed the rental car and a meeting scheduled with a friend. Lufthansa for Frankfurt managed to depart on time. I know this may be out of your control."
Pros: "Staff is very friendly. With the right backing, this could have been one of the best short hop airlines."
Cons: "Boarding is a mess. Make people stand in their groups and enforce these animals to board in an efficient manner. Every other major airline does it. Staff is TOO friendly because these customers rush the gate no matter what and the staff is fine with it."
Cons: "You can not bring a hot drink on board,but they give you hot drinks on board it doesn't make sense.. The seats are very small on a 9 hrs flight,the arm rest should go up for some space when available..There should be at least a vegetarian option for people who don't eat meat.."
Pros: "Timeliness of flight and service on board."
Cons: "We upgraded 7 travelers for priority boarding. However as we got through check in, 2 of us were told we had to check our carry on. Mind you our carry on was the same size (exact same suitcase) as 2 others in our party who did not have to check in their bags? "Priority Boarding is now only €4.99. Be the first on board to store your cabin bag and relax in your seat before take-off." I believe I am entitled to a refund based on the info on above taken directly from the Aer Lingus website."
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable. The seats were too close together and not enough room, but overall the airline is great. Will travel with them again, but will travel business class next time."
Pros: "Better food than on British Airways flight from San Francisco to London. More comfortable on Are Lingus than on British Airways flight from San Francisco to London."
Pros: "Polite crew and on time as scheduled"
Cons: "No breakfast offer"
Cons: "Paying for coffee??"
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent."
Cons: "Food was so so. Entertainment selection was so so. Entertainment technology was substandard."
Pros: "Excellent service from counter in both Newark and Dublin. Cabin crew was very attentive and complimentary food and beverage was just great!"
Pros: "short and uneventful...friendly staff!"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "3 hours in the machine and not even a soda or bag of peanuts for a flight during lunch time. This was not American Airlines, it was Aer Lingus. They want to sell drinks, snacks and duty free. Hey, we were already paying enough just to be in the jet!"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable with very little padding. I'm glad I went to seat guru.com prior to my flight so I could bring a seat cushion!"
Pros: "Why are they flight atendants. So nasty"
Pros: "comfortable flight."
Cons: "no vegetarian options for meal, unless arranged ahead of time...which was not an option."
Cons: "Lack of leg room, I know it's the safe in economy on all airlines, but it's tough!"
Cons: "On the MIA-DUB flight, my headset/entertainment would keep losing sound. On the DUB-BRU: the flight was almost an hour late. They could have at least given free coffee or water to all of us in Economy."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by a little over an hour, but the pilot managed to make up some time. Airplane was clean enough and crew was friendly."
Cons: "No free coffee"
Pros: "SItting on the aisle near the toilets"
Cons: "Seat curved up on the sides which strained my back & thigh muscles."
Pros: "Having meals covered by the airport hotel, and quick access by car to downtown Dublin."
Cons: "Wasn't able to get to IAD when I wanted to (on same day)."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment needs upgrades: better options and better performing screens."
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment system. Lots of options."
Cons: "Be very aware of your seats proximity to the restrooms. I paid for the extra legroom seat that turned out to be where everyone waiting for the restroom stood. I felt very bad for the passenger who was seated directly across the aisle from the restroom door."
Pros: "Flights were smooth and on time. Boarding was fine. I could walk around. Restrooms were clean. The egg breakfast dish on flight from LAX to Dublin was yummy."
Cons: "The seats are too small. I'm 5'11 and had to have my legs in the aisle even though there was nothing under the seat in front of me. The sound system for movies and pilots was hard to understand - not clear. Aisles too narrow."
Pros: "Very helpful and exceptional in flight staff. Ground crew helped us through customs very quickly and made flight transfer very easy."
Pros: "Same as previous flight."
Pros: "I liked that they eventually let my wife and I sit together."
Cons: "The tickets we were assigned were separate. I have no idea why you would assign a couple separate seats, but thankfully they were both window seats and excellent bargaining chips. They partnered with United to get us home and only booked out luggage to O'Hare, which was not our final destination. They lost two identical bags along the way from Barcelona to O'Hare. My bet is they're being rifled through in Dublin right now."
Cons: "We were not seated together. Unable to choose seats in advance or contact them in advance by phone as closed for holiday."
Pros: "Not allowed to carry on 1 bag, and bag with valuable and expensive souvenirs. I thought 1 catry on was allowed."
Cons: "I'm soooo upset about the service after my flight canceled. 1.the staff ignored me when I asked if I could have a VIP to rebook my tickets earlier because my mom got cancel and was going to do the surge . But he went away and never came back, no any response of YES or NO. 2.I don't know why the airline company still need 11 hours to rebook the tickets with all our flight information and our passport liscen numbers already , making us waiting till 3 am at the airport. 3. I asked my boyfriend to talk to the staff on phone, and the staff told my BF that he didn't know my English was not good. I said to him loudly that I had told him , but the manager besides said "don't shout at my staff"to me, even without asking me what happened . I don't think that was a good attitude for the service department, especially to a foreigner. My email address is Chentongtong@wku.edu.cn"
Cons: "Couldn't check in for the second leg of the flight to the US, neither on-line nor at the departing airport, had to go to connections in Dublin. I flew to the US many times and this is the first time an airline IT system does not allow to check in for the US destination. The food was very mediocre. Inflight entertainment didn't work properly."
Again this is an airline problem but our flight was delayed 7.5 hours and we sat on the plane at the gate for 2.5 of those hours.
You have to pay for food; disembarking was super long
Aircraft was late, then back to on time, then late again. Food is just a cereal bar and water. For 200 euros.
Pros: "Quick flight. Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "The primume economy was out of date - compered to BA we flew from Telling Aviv to London"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The food was the worst I have had on a flight. We were crammed into the seats....especially when the seat in front reclines back."
Pros: "Not a lot. Just that the departure was on time."
Cons: "This Business-class seat is a proper rip-off. The only difference from Economy is the in-between seat is not used. No extra leg room whatsoever. Economy from Honolulu to Los Angeles I had more leg room then this one. Unacceptable response from the crew: "that's how it's been the last years"."
Cons: "Took about a month to book an infant ticket, then was issued a ticket with a wrong name, which then took another 3 weeks to be amended. When checking in, the agent told me that my daughter's ticket was not linked to anyone and looked like she was flying solo even though I mentioned to 5 different customer service agents that I would like to add her to my itinerary. Just when I thought it couldn't be worse, captain announced that they were having trouble with the AC for my part of the plane, meaning 7 hour flight was hotter than 80 degrees. I should also mention that trash was not collected until breakfast service."
Pros: "The flight was pretty cold and the attendants came with extra blankets for everyone"
Cons: "Ran out of ice for drinks early"
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Pros: "Impressed by the staff again, they’re yet to disappoint. Food was good too."
Cons: "Check in service at Terminal 5 needs some attention. Not enough support staff, and many unhappy travellers."
Pros: "The crew was friendly (for the most part). Left more or less on time. Food exceed my (rather low) expectations. Good flight, well above average."
Cons: "Couldn't hear the loud speaker at all in London airport. Not loud enough. Poor enunciation. The guy serving tea during the flight was pretty rude. Not of fan of that guy."
Pros: "The curry was good."
Cons: "LHR-JFK was on an older, more claustrophobic plane. Flight crew had a hard time keeping passengers in check, and there was a lot of yelling. The cabin got quite hot, so we were relieved to get off the plane. Older screens made it difficult to enjoy media."
Pros: "Arrived on time although departure was delayed. Cabin crew was vert friendlyand boarding was fast"
Cons: "Would have been nice if the reading material was not so beat up to match the plane's perfect interior, otherwise nothing to fault at all"
Cons: "I did not like the food"
Pros: "Easy flight sequence to get from Seattle to BCN"
Cons: "Could use better entertainment selection"
Pros: "Crew and staff were very nice."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked even though we booked the flight 2 months ahead of time"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, aided by being one of the last to board as I was relaxing in the lounge! Boarding was started earlier than listed and complete by the boarding time, long before the flight was due to leave. Crew were polite and courteous, even going to some extra effort to get me a semblance of a meal."
Cons: "Booked this flight every last minute and didn't order a Vegan option at the time. Was flying business over lunch time so a meal was served. However there was no vegetarian option on the menu. I expected there to be a vegetarian option at least, and I would work around my dietary choice, but with no vegetarian option, this was impossible to do. In the end the crew managed to rustle up something from the Crew meal and I was able to then have snippets of meal segments that suited my requirements. How could this be prevented in the future? Make available a vegetarian choice on all meal served flights. A Meat eater can eat vegetarian at a push but not the other way around. I know if might be too much to ask to make that a Vegan option as standard, because then every one can eat it, but just putting that out there."
Pros: "Heathrow terminal 5 is modern, clean and efficient. The BA 787 Dreamliner is the best and the crew were professional all throughout the journey."
Cons: "I would avoid flying into Newark internationally if I have the option next time. Besides from the obvious that the airport is outdated, it is totally understaffed. There were about a staff of four directing international travelers at Passport Control and they were impolite which created a stressful and unwelcoming experience. The second issue I experienced was at baggage claim. Due to some issue I didn’t personally experienced, non-US passport holders experienced major delays entering the country. This resulted in hundreds of luggage that were left unclaimed from a previous flight still on the carousel. There was only two airport staff at this area so people from the BA flight had to take these the bags off the carousel inorder to make space for our flights bags to fit. It’s was totally chaotic and easily avoidable if there were more airport staff managing this area. This international airport is a national embarrassment, and if you’re a foreign traveler, I would highly discourage you from flying into Newark."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "BA has got rid of in flight services - so what am I paying so much for? - and made me exit and re-enter through security despite the fact that I’d checked in for a connecting flight. Overall not a positive experience and don’t think I’ll be rushing to fly with them again."
Pros: "Ontime, no nonsense flight"
Cons: "Sadly disappointed that drinks (even soda) are no longer free!"
Pros: "Unremarkable short hop that met basic expectations"
Cons: "Tight seats No snack or drink service"
Cons: "-no communication -I stayed in 17 hours of cues -no hotel or meal vouchers -was not let out of the airport -no hydration in lines - people passed out -no line control, people were cutting and lots of arguments ensued -staff was not knowledgeable, was rude to angry customers -baggage was never returned to me, so I had to buy clothes for my business trip -did not answer phones -website went down -no apology or automatic refund, i had to call to get a manual refund"
Pros: "Flight attendant were pleasant"
Cons: "Small seats and little leg room....and I have short legs"
Cons: "seats are too small - but y'all know that!"
Cons: "Water costed money and only credit card accepted"
Cons: "Total confusion boarding following a three hour delay. Food terrible. The total opposite travel experience flying BA to London. Very disappointing experience returning home on BA"
Pros: "They got us there."
Cons: "We flew in from San Francisco to London on full-price Business Class tickets. Stupidly, I bought Coach tickets separately for the short leg to Dublin. British Air would not check two bags all the way to Dublin. For one of the bags, we did the measurements, and joined all the other people who haul extra luggage onto the plane for carry-on. For the other bag, sixty-five Pounds Sterling (about eighty-five bucks) for the other bag for a one hour flight. Wow! That put a big damper on the whole flight experience."
Cons: "We waited 3 hours in the airplane before they would take off, first because they said there was a line for the taxi gate, then they said something was wrong with the airplane they needed to fix it. Shouldn't they do maintenance before they load a plane?"
Cons: "My wife didn't able to travel. She is on h4 visa and when we tried to checkin at airport staff said she can't travel because she doesn't have valod visa in her passport for us. I tried to explain to staff that her h4 visa is her us visa but didn't accept. I have no problem with uk policy but atleast britiah airways should let is know when we booked ticket that you need visa on your passport. I will never ever travel through british airways."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "The crew was great & the food was great too. Service was excellent, very friendly. Managed to get a window seat. It was perfect, a little cozy nook of my own. The 787 had only 7 seats in a row, the configuration was better, more comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike, all good."
Pros: "As always, a great flight."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of."
Pros: "The Chief Purser came over to apologize. At the end of the flight, the Captain came to me to apologize on behalf of the airline. (Too little, way too late.)"
Cons: "I am handicapped and the jetway was broken. British Airways took a bad situation and made it worse! Obviously they had no contingency plans and the gate agents just wan't to avoid any responsibility and started blaming the poor man who had been wheeling me all over the airport. ONLY BRITISH AIRWAYS WAS AT FAULT FOR THIS. Eventually they put me on a lift several gates away and then loaded me onto the platform lift of one of those catering trucks that deliver food to the planes and drove me to my plane. The plane door was shut and they had to bang on the door to have them open it and let me board. As a result, I personally delayed the flight (officially) 28 minutes; in reality about 40 minutes. This was one of the most embarrassing and humiliating experiences of my life; to be loaded on a plane like freight!! Is this how British Airways operates??"
Pros: "I loved the hot towel svc, the food and beverage svc. Flight attendants very attentive."
Pros: "On flight entertainment"
Cons: "After we boarded, there was an announcement stating that there was an issue with one of the wings. So we sat for an hour and a half in an extremely warm plane while they fixed the problem."
Pros: "Generally I like the staff at BA and they are mostly on time"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and even brought by child activity packs for my 2 children flying with me. The flight was on time!"
Cons: "Unboarding on the runway was unpleasant, and having to take a bus to the correct terminal... but it beats circling in the air forever like I'v had to do in the past."
Pros: "It was short"
Cons: "Lost luggage - no one cared despite it clearly being lost at check in going down a broken bag shute. Plane was late. BA is losing their upmarket appeal trying to compete with cheaper airlines."
Pros: "Nothing to state on this flight. Just a low cost flight. Minimum service for just a short distance journey."
Cons: "Minimum service as usual for a low cost flight."
Pros: "This flight was like being in a cattle car. I weigh 115 pounds and felt cramped in every direction."
Cons: "cattle car"
Pros: "I was traveling alone with my baby. Everyone was very helpful"
Cons: "The seats were tight & crews are not at all welcoming! Connection time was insufficient for the strict security screenings, custom clearance & distance between gates (London Would never connect at London Heathrow ever again!"
Pros: "Quick flight with no issues"
Cons: "Little cramped."
Pros: "Nice staff, easy boarding for this flight from Paris to London."
Cons: "I have never had such little legroom as I did on this flight. It was thankfully short, so I can't complain too much."
Around 7h of delay, no information at all from Ryanair, awful experience, will probably never book a fly with this horrible company! When we landed at Brussels, they forgot to unload bagages from the plane, we waited around 1h30 more, people have to threaten the airport staff to start become insane and start to destroy the airport stuff in order have someone to call some staff of the airport, to finally find that Ryanair did not tell the Brussels airport that the plane have bagages in it to unload... (By the way, the person who tell us this, is from Brussels staff, I still did not hear anything from Ryanair about the delay reason and the bagages issue...)
Cons: "Less time at the AirPort after landing"
Pros: "Very quick. Great service"
Pros: "Not super comfortable"
Cons: "Snacks/Drinks for free"
Cons: "Check in process is stupid and staff was very unhelpful."
Pros: "The "sales" gets a little old. Duty free, lotto tickets, food, drink...…."
Pros: "Off ons time no extras got here quick all I want"
Cons: "Was perfect"
Pros: "Delayed and had to have replacement plane"
Cons: "Delayed and had to have replacement plane"
Cons: "Rude gate agent and they played the blame game as to why they were late!"
Pros: "The fact that I won’t fly this airline again."
Cons: "We were delayed 1 hour on the ground in Dublin. The captain never addressed the passengers and the crew - despite being asked to allow passengers with tight connections to depart first - never allowed this to happen. Insensitive and uncaring. We almost missed a connection that would hav caused us to lose $7000. When the crew was asked to find out if we could make up time in the air they never came back with an answer. Thanks Ryan air - next time take a lesson from Southwest Airlines."
Cons: "We spent a lot of time standing in lines."
Pros: "We had a very short flight from Dublin to Edinburgh and everything was good"
Pros: "on time quick boarding from both ends of the plane friendly staff"
Cons: "No tv or entertainment"
Cons: "Slow, uncomfortable system of mass boarding."
Cons: "Arrival is horrific"
Pros: "The price makes it very inviting to fly Ryanair. I misunderstood the need to electronically check in before I arrived at the airport but was helped, very courteously, by the ticket agent."
Cons: "Any food or beverage was for a fee. It was a short flight and midday so it wasn't a problem for me but under different circumstances it could be."
Cons: "Boarding announcement was very delayed."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Nothing free, not even a cup of water"
Pros: "The food options were pretty good."
Cons: "The seats didn't move back at all!!!"
Cons: "Boarding was haphazard and painful."
Pros: "The flight was A-okay, but the experience leading up to it was not."
Cons: "First of all, the website is laid out in such a way that it's easy to make unnessasarry additional purchases. We ended up purchasing seats at the very back of the plane. We were unable to print our boarding tickets prior to checking in at the airport and after waiting in line for help, were directed to self help computers that we had to pay-to-use. These were not working and after lining up for help several more times (to get change to pump into the computers etc...) and sending off a 'chat help request we finally left and got a different clerk. While this second clerk was telling us we'd have to pay for her help, someone else overheard our challenges and took over from the clerk, printed our boarding tickets at no further charge and got us on our way. While we certainly appreciate the service at the end, it should never have come to that."
Cons: "U have to print boarding pass 2 hours before I did t See this written anywhere . Also they close the gate 30 minutes before and it takes 30 minotes to get to the gate Very difficult process so fate was closed and I had to pay 60 eu for luggage which was never clear anywhere and I had to check-in 3 hours before you have to check in before u can print the boarding pass so I was looking for a boarding pass but could t get it since I didn't know I had to check In???????? Mo5hi g explained anywhere!"
Pros: "Neat plane and friendly hostesses"
Cons: "Lousy timing flight was delayed over an hour"
Pros: "It was cheap, quick and easy"
Cons: "The rules around baggage, priority boarding and purchasing seats is not very clear"
Cons: "They canceled our flight, standing us in Spain (we live in the U.S.) and they made no attempt to help us reschedule a flight or reimburse us in anyway. Never flying Ryanair again."
Pros: "The airport was great"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving, the airport kept changing gates so people were running back and forth, a lot of turbulence in flight."
Cons: "First, I tried to check-in online but their system was down. I outsmarted them because I took several screen shots of different timelines. When I checked-in at their counter, they wanted to charged me €40. The lady wouldnt believe me when I told her that I tried to checkin online for 2 hours but their system was down. That's when I showed her the photo of the screen shot, she called someone on the phone telling him or her of the situation and that I have proof of screenshots. They finally allowed me to check-in with no fee. Second, When I dropped my 3 luggages, they wanted to charge me for my 2 check luggage allowances. I told the lady that I bought online for 3 luggages allowances,but their system only showed that I only bought one. It took several minutes for them to realized that I was right. Third, maybe because of my lack of sleep and tired of travelling for over a month, i left my shoulder bag under the seat of the plane. My fiancee's and my passports as welk.as £500, smart tablet,camera,credit cards,jewelries and other personal belongings were inside my bag. That day was the last day of our 40days vacation. When I got outside of the terminal, that's when I realized that I left my bag on the plane. I went quickly to Ryan air desk but the lady told me that we have to go to the lost item counter and wait for my bag to show up. I waited the whole afternoon at the lost item counter and the lady there told me to just call them and ask if my bag has showed up. When I got to the hotel, I called the airline for rebooking on my flight back to my country. I went back the next day to the airport,but my bag has not showed up at the lost item counter. I was able to get the contact numbers of Ryan air in-charge of this matter. I requested someone to call the person in cbarge,telling him that my bag couldnt be lost because of strict security inside the airport, after a long wait,they finally said they found my bag. I waited 1 hour for Ryan air staff to turn over my bag to the lost item coiunter. When I finally got my bag, there were only £40 left in my bag and a piece of jewelly was missing. I will fly back to my country today and I will file a formal complain with Ryan air as well as write the CEO or President of Ryan air of the way he runs the business. I'm glad I got back our passports but the whole world should know about how Ryan air run their business. PLEASE,.STAY AWAY FROM RYAN AIR."
Cons: "I you don't check in within 2 hours only. You have to pay extra"
Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "The guy sitting next to me smelled"
Pros: "Gave 1 star for food & entertainment as didn't buy food and of course too short for entertainment Would fly again with Ryan Air if they didn't insist on a printer boarding pass, too difficult."
Cons: "Having to print out a boarding pass is almost impossible when travelling as no access to a printer. The check-in area at Dublin as poor signage as I needed to get my booking pass stamped & passports checked The seats didn't recline & because I am not tall the head rest curve pushes my head forward (on most planes) have gap behind neck so very uncomfortable only helped by reclining seat. Boarding messy as no seat order called hence isles blocked, most planes load back seats first keeping isles free, this plane had back & front stair gangways but weren't told."
Cons: "Over crowded. Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "A quick flight."
Cons: "The additional charges for checked bags. LOTS of additional charges!"
Cons: "I have NEVER encountered such rude people working anywhere. The staff was impolite and abrasive. I had a question on my bag and they would not discuss with me. I will NEVER fly this airline again. On my vacation in Europe this trip, I flew five different airlines. All other airlines were wonderful - this one, absolutely NO Customer Service from check in to the flight. Staff were irritable. Unfriendly. I was told this is their reputation - horrible customer service and staff as they are a "cheap" airline. I've flown budget flights before - I've never dealt with any customer service like this!"
Cons: "Seats don't recline. No leg room. Cattle car feel!"
Pros: "Great price and convenient . On time"
Cons: "Tight quarters"
Pros: "boarding was on time and no delays on the tarmac"
Cons: "Extra fees for luggage. Tiny seats w/out reclining"
Cons: "Everything, especially the employees"
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "No food. And the seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "I liked the price."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the employees at the check-in counter had less information about the flight than I did (I informed them that it was running late). Then when the flight was two and a half hours late, there were no employees with whom to talk about how to help me make alternative arrangements when I got to my destination (the lateness of the flight significantly disrupted my travel)."
Cons: "We did not know when we bought the tickets that there is a $45 dollar fee for checking in at the airport. We received a reminder email in our inbox a few hours prior to our flight, but we were already traveling and our WIFI access was limited, so we did not see it. It cost an extra $90 dollars to check in and a bit of stress as we were attempting to check in before the two hour mark using the airport internet that was spotty. We ended up missing our checkin by minutes, and had to pay. It was like being on one of those timed amazing race shows. $90 dollars!!! Won't do that again."
Cons: "Over 1 hour delay! Really terrible"
Pros: "Price from Dublin to Glasgow was unbeatable. They try to get you in the plane quick."
Cons: "They close the door 40 minutes prior, so make sure you get there with plenty of time to line up."
Cons: "Our backpacks cost as much as our tickets. I probably will use them again, though."
Pros: "Crew was great. Professional, funny."
Cons: "Very cramped in the plane. Stood for an hour at the gate, not enough seats. Stood on Tarmac in the rain."
