Pros: "The entertainment was good"
Cons: "The food on the 2nd flight was bad"
Cons: "70’ late on a 45’ flight"
Pros: "Upon arrival in ZRH, there was a separate small bus for the business class passengers. It was nice to not have to wait for all passengers to deplane before being transported to the terminal."
Pros: "The seats aren’t the greatest"
Cons: "Just the seats"
Pros: "Great friendly crew. Efficient systems."
Cons: "Tight seats. Very little leg room."

Cons: "Missed connection flight because of delay"
Cons: "Seat would not recline. Long fight cramped 27B"
Pros: "Not applicable."
Cons: "The fact that Swiss Airlines cancelled my return flight from Venice to Zurich and then Zurich to JFK."
Cons: "They canceled the flight and took me to another company with a stop in Turkey,it was a really bad and uncomfortable flight And I’m really disappointed!!!!!"
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late which made our connection very tight."
Pros: "Liked the flight arrangements as convenient. Although left Zurich little bit late, made up time as OK. Thanks for the great experience in using your services."
Cons: "Seating room is very tight, especially for someone who is over 6 feet tall. Wished I alerted Swiss Air in desire to have exit row seats."
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly, efficient, courteous Refreshments generous and excellent. Good movies."
Cons: "Rather than boarding economy passengers by row number, there is a free-for-all at the gate, and tedious blockage in the aisles as passengers wait for others to place carry-on luggage. More leg-room than United, but still a bit crowded for tall people. VERY BAD DESIGN of arm-rests, which do not go up all the way into the seat but instead jut out at an angle."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of was bad just a regular fight."
Pros: "Very professional!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 85 minutes from Newark to Zurich"
Pros: "See / hear the middle-aged guy around seat 22 aisle coughing his lungs out throughout the 10 hour flight without once covering his mouth ? WTF is going on w an airline that would let a passenger behave like this ? Didn’t see the attendants offering a cough drop, or asking if he would please behave like a civilized human being. Looking for others corroboration. Spread the word like this guy this w his germs"
Cons: "A grown man coughing loudly during a 10 hr flight w/o once covering his mouth"
Cons: "Space for legs seems to become smaller and smaller. In EL AL (flight back) space was wider."
Pros: "Crew was good. Very polite. The plane was old. No place to charge your phone. The in flight screen required the use of a remote which was inconvenient when having to wake up my neighbor to pull it out of the armrest. Food wasn’t great. Skipped the last meal service. It was like flying 20 years ago. Not bad, but not as good as it could be nowadays."
Cons: "Not very much space for such a long flight."
Pros: "Excellent food."
Cons: "Yet again, was "randomly" chosen for extra security. Flight was delayed for over an hour because of mechanical failure. A/C set at polar temperatures."
Pros: "Even a short flight (1 hr 10 minutes) serves a good sandwich for lunch, drinks, and excellent chocolates to top it off."
Pros: "I thought Swiss did a nice job. The people were kind and the service was excellent. The meals were great. I never wanted for anything. The entertainment was also very nice."
Pros: "Flight was fine. The attendants on board were friendly and efficient. The food was nice though there wasn't much variety in drinks."
Cons: "It was awful getting boarding passes and paying for check in luggage in Venice. I assumed we couldn't check in early online much like the earlier Lufthansa flight. Then when we got to the airport there were long lines to check in and no machines to self check in. When we finally got to the front of the line the woman said we had to pay for our checked baggage elsewhere and then come back for the boarding passes. Unheard of elsewhere. The people in the office where you pay for checked baggage took their time and chatted and had no sense of urgency. The first woman we spoke to apparently filled out the form incorrectly. We had to rush to get to the plane and we barely made it through long security lines. We almost missed the plane due to the lack of early information and check in, the cumbersome payment process, etc. It was the worst check in process ever."
Pros: "Crew was good on the overseas flight. The purser especially, and his attitude rubbed off on the others."
Cons: "No wifi. Entertainment screen, etc was ancient by competitors' standards. Very difficult to operate, and I could not get it switched off once on. The screen light was in my face all night! I noticed another passenger with the same problem. Screen kept going blurry too. I booked Swissair because the price was good, now I regret that."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "My wife is strictly Hindu vegetarian. We had entered her food choice at Swiss web site months before. She didn't get the food while going to Zurich and coming back to Boston. She remained hungry both ways. Although we were in business class while coming."
Pros: "The flight attendants seemed very courteous, but unable to do anything about the situation."
Cons: "We had a family of four sitting behind us. The father yelled all the time. They took up four overhead bins and he was frequently up and down getting things out of the bins. His very hairy large belly was touching my daughters head every time. He and his children punched the backs of our seats on a regular basis. My back was in constant pain and I was unable to do very many things due to the back pain during my "vacation", The flight attendants had to remind the parents that their children could not stand on the seats during takeoff or crawl around under the seats. No ability to change seats or I would have. I didn't have a problem with the other children on the flight, when they were crying their parents tried to do something. However these people brought playdough for their child to roll out or punch on the seat tray and all they did was constantly yell loudly at their children, Well not about the kicking, punching, or crawling around. Just yell in general at them."
Pros: "Professional polite crew."
Cons: "Seats too SMALL Food not eatable"
Pros: "Very impressed with snack: good tasting quiche with biodegradable packaging and no plastic utensils. Thanks for being so green! On time flight."
Pros: "nice and efficient crew. seats had good space for flight"
Cons: "no entertainment."
Pros: "Great experience. GOod comfortable flight, crew and overall services"
Cons: "I wish there were more bollywood albums and more bollywood movies...to choose from"
Cons: "I did not get a check in reminder email which I thought was strange. I tried checking in and received an error message. I contacted customer service by email and was told I was all checked in. Assuming no issues I went to airport to find out it was canceled. I did not receive an explanation. I waited in line for two hours before speaking to a representative. Was made to feel like it was my fault I hadn't worked things out while waiting in line-"didn't you receive an email!?" I was told no other options except to leave the next day. I pulled up many other flights out of Venice that would get me home in time and was told that there simply were no other options. The real explanation was that Swiss didn't want to pay out to get me home in time. I had to pay more money to get back into the city rather than sit in airport for 12 hours."
Pros: "I am a big guy but the interior of this plane is laid out for more room than commuter flights are in the States. The window seats sit further off the wall so there is room for my shoulders to not be forced into the wall."
Pros: "Very prompt and courteus"
Cons: "Baggage missing for three days. Communication poor."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Again, boarding was chaos. No special boarding for star alliance gold member."
Pros: "Kind and efficient service. Help to board and disembark Good communication. Great customer service."
Cons: "It took some time to get our gate-checked wheel chair, but I have to say, they went out of their way to help us find it."
Pros: "Polite cabin crew. Quick check- in at JFK"
Cons: "Inability to add TSA pre-check to my profile. Very slow check- in process in Geneva. Cramped seating ."
Cons: "My baggage never made it on my first flight due to a strike by Swiss airlines crew. The flight was delayed and we were told it was because there was less crew and it was taking some time to get our baggage on the plane. Due to the delay, I missed my connecting flight and was rescheduled for a flight the following day. When I went to get my checked bags, I was told they never made it on the plane and were indefinitely in the first city (Barcelona). I was told to file a complaint once I got home (US) and then they'd forward the bag to me. I did not receive my bags until 5 full days later, in which I had to call every single day and ask to place more request to move the bags from one city to the next. If I hadn't stayed on top of it, I surely would not have received my bags. Also, when I checked my bags in Barcelona, I had to pay an extra 75 Euros for having a second bag although the weight limit was not surpassed. The guy at the counter was really nice and didn't want to charge me but due to the strike, the policy was really strict on a one bag limit. That I understand, but I did file a complaint and request to be refunded that 75 Euros since the service that I paid for was not completed on their end until 5 days later. I'm really hoping they refund me but not gunna bet on it."
Cons: "Not. Lot of room for legs. Slection of movies very poor. Very old movies mostly"
Pros: "Crew was really nice, comfortable seat, great experience"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Good staff, food, service"

Cons: "Entertainment system is limited and touchscreen was not calibrated so I had to use the handset."
Pros: "Crew was great, on time flight, clean plane."
Cons: "Entertainments options were shockingly few. Honestly have not been on a plane recently with so few and limited options of TV series and movies. I was extremely surprised. Wish I had know and I would’ve had more options for my family."
Cons: "No internet available (2020). For the my previous flight, a month ago, was the same problem."
Cons: "Delay due to strike"
Pros: "Excellent crew, good food & movie selection."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"

Pros: "KLM staff is great"
Cons: "If only there was a way to be able to lie down and sleep - you would be pioneers in aviation"
Cons: "Faultless handling of weather delay, causing missed connection and flight transfer. A well oiled machine, thank you."
Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Pros: "Very personable staff. Food acceptable for airline fare. Ticket price was outstanding."
Cons: "Paid for extra legroom, but very narrow seats not comfortable. Very difficult to sleep. Old plane--could not hear movies and unclear screen. Music sounded OK and choice was good."

Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."
Cons: "I would have to dream something up."
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows"
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Pros: "The staff were professional and friendly The food was very good and plentiful The inflight entertainment has lots of choices The bathrooms remained clean All in stark contrast with BA with who I did the same flight 2 weeks ago and all the above points were very poor"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."
Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."
Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."

Cons: "Not much to comment on here."
Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
Pros: "I have no complaints about the air crew. They where pleasant and attentive. Plenty of free entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "my only complaint is the USB ports didn't work on any of the chairs that me and my family where assigned to."
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"

Pros: "Special treat for King's Day Friendly crew"
Cons: "15 min late boarding 30 min delay leaving the gate Very little leg room"
Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"
Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"
Pros: "No entertainment or food needed on a half hour flight. Otherwise excellent."
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Flights have been completely changed with another airlines just a few hours before departure. New trip had a short connection time between flights and separate check-ins were required. The first flight was a bit delayed, so we had to pick up our luggage after the first flight, run to another terminal check in and drop off baggage again. We almost missed the second flight. That was painful!!!
It was a terrible experience for a family of 4 with a teenage to be assigned 4 seats at different rows far away from each other even after I checked that the 4 seats are next to each other on the day before the flight date. The 1st connecting flight has 4 seats connecting to each other on the same raw as confirmed on the day before flight, but the 9 hour main flight's seats were changed from what was confirmed from a day before the flight date. A confirmed seats assignment meant nothing to Lufthansa and it's partner airline AIR DOLOMITI S P A.
Pros: "Booking, price"
Cons: "A little easier site navigation- understanding"
Pros: "The most amazing service, good food and great steward"
Cons: "One cookie with tea is not enough at this time of day! Boarding was organised terribly and was the main reason for the delay."
Cons: "I was lost my luggage for my whole trip and I still didn’t get my luggage yet very disappointed !!! You want to answer can you guys do something for me or any ideals"
Cons: "The multiple gate changes & technical delay caused us to miss our connection to Boston"
Cons: "The airline cancelled my ticket because they said I was not on my earlier flight two weeks prior. This was absolutely not true. I had taken the flight and also checked bags. For an airline to cancel someones tickets and not notify them is highly unethical."
Pros: "Lufthansa take great care of their passengers, always"
Cons: "Poor gliding in and rough landing"
Pros: "Crew was OK, seat was comfortable"
Cons: "No choice for food, for the last rows only pasta was left, bad calculation on crew side"
Pros: "Too cramped for a 10 hour flight"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Boarding process and email updates."
Cons: "Business class on European domestic flights is nothing more than coach seats with no one seated in the middle. Better than coach, but not by much and not worth the extra money."
Pros: "Nothing positive to report...NOTHING!!"
Cons: "Worse travel day of my life. I'll never fly Lufthansa again and never go thru Frankfort again. Lost luggage both ways. Awful experience!!"
Pros: "nice crew!"
Cons: "Seat hardly reclines at all."
Cons: "Stuck in Frankfurt due to weather which I understand but no one helped us navigate the customer service lines and it was utter chaos!!! I stood in line for four!!!! Hours and did not get checked on once then i found out I did that for no reason and i had to wait In another line for almost two hours!!! Then then next day my flight was delayed for four!!! Hours due to engine issues and they had to get a new plane so the rerouted two flights had To be canceled And I was stuck overnight again in Dallas. No one met me at the gate or had anything to say to me. Not really one ounce of customer service . I could tell it was Hard with the airport closing due to weather but this is an international flight and someone could have done something to help me just navigate the process over the three day period. One woman who I finally talked to in Frankfurt spent an hour with me when i was utterly exhausted and there were No more flights or hotels left She was To be commended. The rest was chaos and exhausting and I still have another flight tomorrow."
Pros: "Cabin service and crew excelent"
Cons: "LH App not work had hard time getting seat and boarding pass online. Flight canceled LH 444 rebooked next day. While they not say I believe consolidation due to light passenger load. Long walk FRA outbound but short walk home bound. Went on bus to plane no jetway boarding."
Cons: "professionalist from the whole crew"
Pros: "frequent offering of water/ juices etc by flight staff. Nice bathroom area on lower level quick exit from plane even from row 53"
Cons: "Not there. Still in germany"
Pros: "Crew were very kind and hospitable. The aircraft was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was running late, but that was minor. Not an inconvenience for me."
Pros: "they did good job"
Cons: "security held me up due to venice security not stamping my passport,,,i was finally able to find the original ticket due to free wifi in airport and get it straightened out though it would have been awful if i had not been early early"
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "Service was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "To italy united by Lufthansa had great Netflix shows, movies and better interface. This flight to Chicago was Germany based, so I understand the international choices, but there was very little to watch in the movie, tv and show categories. Otherwise all great!"
Pros: "Plain in excellent condition and very clean. Friendly staff and welcome."
Cons: "Should have mobile phone chargers on board."
Pros: "Service was excellent. ."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Planes were very nice and food was very good for airplane food. I would highly recommend flying Lufthansa. Staff was excellent."
Cons: "Service was excellent. Planes were very nice and food was very good for airplane food. I would highly recommend flying Lufthansa. Staff was excellent."
Pros: "Flight was on par with other budget airlines. No frills means not having the extras."
Cons: "Paid for premium seat not really worth it. Less leg room and no convienent storage."
Cons: "I traveled to Italy for Vacation. Both times, LH925 on 1st May from Heathrow to Frankfurt was delayed by 20 Mins. and TReturn on 9th May, LH327 from Venice to Frankfurt was delayed by 20 Mins. Late arrivals caused extra stress on Connections and We had to run across the airport to catch the connecting flight. Flight getting delayed both ways makes me rethink about LH Flights. I will be careful and wont like to travel on LH ."
Pros: "Operated by Lufthansa. Attentive flight attendant. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "It was a smooth ride overall, the staff was comfort us."
Cons: "The food was terrible is like each year the value goes down."
Pros: "Everything went as smoothly as possible. Would definitely recommend."
Pros: "On time. Smoothe boarding. No poor food. In general a pleasantly uneventful flight."
Cons: "I checked my one small siitcase which easily fitsin the overhead binas the ticket agent told me it was a full flight and thus required. My hand luggage was my handbag. The flight was actually 2/3 full with plenty of empty seats and empty bin space. Most passengers had 2pieves of hand luggage. So I had to wait for luggage at the end of the flight when I could have easily stored it overhead."
Pros: "I got the meal of my choice. Excellent attention and check in experience was smooth and quick"
Pros: "flight on time The crew as friendly and professional"
Cons: "I was not able to pick my seat in advance. The entertainment was geared to children or older movies. Food mediocre We were told about our flight change but not about what we needed to change until we tried to check in on our last day of our trip wasting time on our last day flight ful and packed in to small seats"
Pros: "Quiet and comfortable for a regional, one hour flight."
Cons: "Getting bussed all over the airport ."
Pros: "Both airports were great, food and shopping extremely convenient. very clean airports as well"
Cons: "#1 at Venice, allow the customers who checked in online to drop bags faster by giving them a separate line. And the online payment for bags was not user-friendly Venice should have a bus shuttle for the older folks from the Water Taxi to the terminal and one person to monitor the security at this location at all times. A few more signs in multiple languages at the security checkpoint would have made the line go faster. Same thing at the ticket check-in counter."
Pros: "The fight left on time and got us to Frankfurt"
Cons: "It was a really rainy day and we all had to get on shuttles to get to our plane. Once we reached the plane, the crew should have facilitated an orderly boarding through both doors rather than one. This was also a pretty empty flight and other passengers were utilizing their assigned seat as well as a whole other row and calling it theirs just because they set something on one seat. It didn't seem right that some of us had to stay in our little crowded area while others used up 4 seats and I don't mean for laying down."
Pros: "The seats were roomy, the flight staff was attentive and very efficient. The plane was clean and offered many different movies to watch. They even had new releases on those list along with games and music. I truly enjoyed my first experience with this airline!"
Cons: "They offered alternative media for people with dietary restrictions and I didn't know this when I booked. I'm gf and they could have accommodated, had I known."
Pros: "Nice courageous service"
Cons: "I didn't find any dislike"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "For such a long flight needing to use a personal device for in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "I slept the entire flight, so no real observations or comments"
Pros: "The flight to Frankfurt was pleasant, boarding went smoothly, and the service was great. Overall good experience"
Pros: "The staff was so prompt and friendly"
Cons: "Cramped leg space, no entertainment"
Pros: "A fast, smooth, and easy flight with a polite and efficient crew. The Frankfurt airport needs some type of internal transportation or reorganization because the size and shape make it a challenge to go through passport control and find your gate in time to transfer."
Cons: "The snack consisted of sugary packaged cookies. After waking at 6 a.m. to catch my flight, I would have preferred plain yogurt with fruit or muesli, or at least a nutritious nutty bar such as the KIND brand. The boarding consisted of everyone standing in a disorganized line next to another long line so that I was not sure if I was in the right place and felt nervous as the time to board drew near. Staff did not seem to be communicating what was happening and were not circulating. I had to ask fellow passengers if I was in the right line and on the right bus. We pushed away from the gate early. This worked against me at the beginning of my vacation when I missed my flight by 5 minutes due to the disorganized nature of the Frankfurt airport and its massive size."
Pros: "Quiet flight... Nice service ... Paying extra for added leg room in economy was definitely worth it."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight got delayed. Would be nice if the crew would come around w water occasionally"
Pros: "I like how they boarded the back of the plane first!"
Cons: "The seats weren't as comfortable as other airlines. The food wasn't very good either."
Pros: "Great movies and TV available."
Cons: "The food and service was pretty mediocre. The plane was old and felt dirty."
Cons: "They lost all my luggage"
Cons: "They did not include our checked luggage on our flight and had to wait for it to be delivered on the next available flight from Dublin."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Roomier seats, include a beverage (soda, juice, and at least water), child free section"
Pros: "Everything was good except the flight from Dublin to Prague..., I was really thirsty.., and they charged me even for water..!"
Cons: "Free drink/ water on the second flight !"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. I suggested I take another flight, they kept on saying we will not be late . Well i missed both connecting flights."
Cons: "The flight is advertise as a British airways flight which flies out of teminal E in Boston. In reality the flight is through aer lingus which flies through terminal C. This should be clarified upon booking...."
Cons: "My flights were cancelled by Aer lingus and I was rebooked improperly, resulting in my being removed from a plane and having to be rebooked at least three times because of how long it took."
Pros: "Quick flight. Small delay. Missing food options but didn’t want anything on the short flight. Window views were great even if I wasn’t on a window seat."
Cons: "Emergency door seating. Actually a lot of seats were free. Reclining seat should have been offered."
Cons: "They don’t even give you water unless you pay. Three hour flight. Ridiculous, Delay flight, old craft etc."
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "Staff did not seem engaged in customer service, did not go up and down the aisles to collect cups, paper, etc. very disappointing in tight space."
Pros: "Fine flight, pushed back on time, tarmac shuttle service"
Cons: "Kinda crummy to not get any water or refreshments on a 3 hour flight"
Cons: "The flight was booked through Jetfly and I tried to change the date. I ended up losing the entire ticket. No flight, no money. I talked to Jetfly at least 8 times and they kept confusing things, delaying things, and were not very helpful which caused me to miss any available flights."
Pros: "Crew was excellent and very nice"
Cons: "Left from Venice and stood in line to check in and check bags for an hour. unable to check in before arriving. Had to run through the airport to make our flight. Absurd that I couldn’t get a cup of water without paying"
Pros: "The crew members were pretty nice. They were quick to distribute good and drinks."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate not being told directly that it was NOT British Airways and was Aer Lingus instead. I was expecting to be served by British Airways as that's what my ticket said. Next time just put Aer Lingus and it would have avoided confusion."
Pros: "Staff where unbelievable nice and kind"
Cons: "I was fine with a 5 hour delay I was fine with my bags not being on the same flight as me I am not fine with finally receiving my bags 24 hours later soaking wet. Everything it dripping. I still have nothing to change into now and there was no compensation offered whatsoever. Never flying with this airline again."
Pros: "I have never been on an airplane with a crew that constantly gave out orders during the flight. Having the trays and seat backs put up one hour before the flight landed? Frequent barking about the shades needing to be up or down? Making you put your seat back up because someone’s drinking coffee behind you? It got old. I suspect this is a company thing. They seemed friendly enough but they have their marching orders!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Smooth landing. Entertainment. That's about it."
Cons: "I've flown many overseas trips some first, some premium, some economy. This economy was the worst. I felt like a sardine smashed in a tin can. Also, extra to buy snacks and drinks? Not looking forward to the flight back. Would love to upgrade but site won't let you :( even if it gives you an option to do so"
Pros: "The only thing I can say that I liked about this flight was that we arrived a little early."
Cons: "Note: This review is for Aer Lingus a partner of British Airways. 1) Service - one of our fight attendants was incredibly rude. She clearly resents her job. 2) The plane itself was very old and not well maintained. The audio jack for the in-flight entertainment was broken and I could not watch anything. My wife complained about the touch screens being faulty and her audio system was bad. Also, the carpet and seat fabric was torn. 3) The food was disgusting. I mean, really bad. 4) There was a charge for alcohol whereas British Airways was complimentary. 5) Overall, I will never fly Aer Lingus again. It was the worst flying experience in memory."
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "They lost my luggage on my connecting flight from Dublin to London. And I didn’t receive it until I returned home a week later. No clothing for a week. I wasn’t offered any reimbursement. The flight attendants were rude. And the seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "More room for passengers in economy class. It is becoming utterly unpleasant. I would like not to be forced to check-in the carry-on when the plane is full. Make more room, sell less, or don't tell me I have right too a carry-on."
Pros: "The flight attendents were fabulous, very friendly and helpful. I sat in the first row and when I boarded the attendant helped me find a spot for my carry on luggage."
Cons: "I paid for priority boarding but never had the chance to board early."
Pros: "Flying overnight across the U.S., and then the Atlantic, to Dublin would have been very difficult if not for the accommodations and service provided by Aer Lingus. The reception was warm and comfortable. The in-flight food and service was perfect. The environment was conducive to sleeping during this red eye flight."
Cons: "I have no complaints, to be honest. The flight attendants were so welcoming and accommodating to every request. They were efficient and quick to respond to my questions and requests."
Cons: "Worst flight experience I've ever had and I'm 70+ years old. In Dublin we were diverted from JFK to Hartford due to "mechanical problems" and told we'd be met at the gate and provided ground transportation to JFK. Approximately 30 others going to either JFK or Boston were told the same thing and joined us on a half empty flight to Hartford. When we landed there was no representative at the gate, no ground transportation provided, and no effort to help us. A little investigation on cell phones revealed both the Boston and JFK flights left on time (and I'm guessing full). Needless to say the customers were quite upset. Some even raised their voices which caused the kid representatives of Aer Lingus to call the state troopers (really). When the troopers did nothing the Aer Lingus reps locked themselves in their office rather than deal with their customers. After 2 hours of waiting for the promised ground transportation we gave up, rented a car, and drove ourselves to our destination at our own expense. We were never provided even a free drink. Horrible. Lies upon lies upon lies. I'll never consider flying with them again"
Pros: "The crew was VERY friendly and attentive. They responded quickly to requests and were very pleasant. Everyone was showed attention to details and put customer comfort at the forefront. They allowed people to relocate to seats allowing for more room and comfort once everyone boarded and empty seats were identified. The snacks and meals were tasty and generous. The entertainment options offered something for everyone - great music and movie choices. I would definitely fly Aer Lingus again."
Pros: "The crew was lovely"
Cons: "The space given was considerably smaller than other transatlantic flights and there were also no alcoholic beverages included when other airlines do."
Pros: "Seating location was as expected and service was great. We enjoyed the overall flight experience."
Cons: "Check-in at Milan was quite slow and confusing. Would recommend opening earlier or having additional staff. Once you make it through the check-in process, you are stuck in an area of the airport with very little amenities."
Pros: "The automated check in and baggage tagging using the kiosk was fantastic! Very professional flight attendants. Overall very comfortable. Great options for entertainment - and we didn't have to "pay as you go." Clearly covered in price of the flight. Same with luggage - love not having to pay separate bag charge. Much preferred over the "nickel-and-dime-you-to-death" approach of U.S. airlines!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for nearly 1.5 h for unclear reason, then boarding was prolonged as there was no bus to bring us to the aircraft. Once on the plane we were delayed further because we lost our takeoff spot"
Cons: "It took two full hours from check in to the gate, with no clear direction on where to go at any point (this has more to do with the venice airport). Flight was delayed which was lucky, as no one could get through the lines in time. 25 minute wait upon landing for a jet bridge to be attached, then another 50 minutes for baggage to appear. All in all it was more than a 7 hour process to fly Venice to Dublin! There may have been some sort of internal system problems, but they were never mentioned which really just led to lots of frustrated passengers throughout the whole experience."
Pros: "clearing customs in Dublin rather than US was nice. Since we chose the flight based on price, It's reasonable to expect some corner cutting."
Cons: "Aer Lingus operated the flight. Haphazzard ticketing/check-in procedure would have been stressful if it wasn't clear that everyone else on the plane was there in line too. Both legs of our trip with Aer Lingus were on older planes, that had obviously flown a lot of miles. It was a short flight, so food wasnt a necessity, but no beverages were complimentary. Given airline security, water, at least, should be complimentary on any flight."
Cons: "this wasn't a BA flight.. it was air lingus and it was a disaster. shouldn't have been charged BA rates for this"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the crew was friendly and the food was okay."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't great. The earphones quality was quite bad and felt really uncomfortable. Unfortunately, AerLingus still has that double pronged plugs and I wasn't able to use my personal set (actually, I could but sound would only work on one side). I'll definitely fly with them again, only next time I'll bring an attachment for me to be able to use my headphones."
Cons: "Seats on B767 very uncomfortable compared to Airbus. No leg room!"
Pros: "The people who worked at the front desk and boarding desk were very friendly and met my needs. As I asked to sit up front and they got me seats by aisle in the front. The beef stew were good"
Cons: "Short flight, so there wasn't any entertainment or food."
Pros: "Nothing! It is ridiculous that not even water is given on an almost two hour flight. We pay enough for the flight we should not have to buy water."
Cons: "The cost"
Cons: "Late service, poor communication leading to events that left me angry and frustrated and left my friend in tears. I won't be flying British Airways ever again if humanly possible."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The fact that beer and wine had to be paid for. It is such a small thing to make passengers welcome and feel good on their trip! Lufthansa and Swiss Air don't charge for alcohol on transatlantic flights."
Pros: "Food excellent, plane staff pleasant. Plane was late."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. The young man at the,AL desk at Frankfort was tude,and dismissive. It is more than 24 hours later now and they have made no contact."
Pros: "Efficient flight, left a bit late door reasons beyond control of the airline."
Cons: "Website was difficult to navigate. Check in required filling lots of necessary information and if you did not do it quickly, it blanks it all out and you have to do it over. There is no indication of it timing out. Boarding announcements were difficult to understand as were announcements on the plane."
Cons: "There's no aer lingus desk at marseille airport. I arrives a few minutes late and nobody could help me. I missed my flight. Ryanair staff have me aer lingus's phone number to rebook for the day after, and of course on the phone she told me that I had to do it online."
Cons: "Paying for water was a bit much. Fortunately, no charge was made for air to breathe."
Pros: "Everything was basic. I got an old plane so everything wasn't up to date"
Cons: "It was slow in taking off, not sure why but the plane was taxi'd for a long time. In-flight system and variety was lacking. Audio was poor. It did the job taking me to my destination but the great."
Cons: "Had to cancel trip. Took many phone calls because the Internet service does not respond. Tried to change trip initially but they were unable to or not set up to work with British airways. Kayak should not use this company. I will never book with them again"
Pros: "Serviceable flight."
Cons: "Unable to check in 24 hours before the flight."
Pros: "Check-in was easy and gate agent awesome. Boarding was a breeze. Plane was reasonably comfortable (short haul flight so didn't matter much). Weather conditions great, we arrived in DUB well ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Had lovely pix of nice looking food but charged for it! I had come over on a BA flight that served a really nice snack b'fast. Thought it odd that same route with different carrier made you pay. I was in desperate need of a coffee, could have offered complimentary beverages."
Cons: "I badly needed more leg room."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess with a long delay and change of gate. The flight was one hour late and we missed our connection. Because it was on a different airway"
Pros: "We got to our destination"
Cons: "They don’t even give you a cup of water, a horrible low cost airline with premium pretences! Gatwick is a horrible airport to fly to."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "Enough room to sit. The worst cramped seat I have ever had to fly in."
Pros: "Good service, boarded quick and landed early"
Cons: "Seat spacing too close, no leg room. Charge for all snacks. Need to enforce carry on limits."
Cons: "No food served on this flight."
Cons: "There was a delay of more than an hour so I had to run for my connecting flight then my bags didn't make the flight."
Cons: "Seat clearance not good"
Pros: "Great service Yummy meals Free movies to watch Comfortable seats with use of pillow and blanket"
Pros: "The aircraft got off the ground. I woke up, we landed, and I exited the aircraft. I secretly wondered where we were."
Cons: "When I arrived at the security area for the hop to LAX, I told the agent that I was pre-screened. "That's nice," she said. "Now take off those shoes and your belt, put all liquids and creams in this bag, and get in line.""
Pros: "Loved the 787. One flight attendant was just great. She made the difference on the flight! Didn't get her name but the trip was made better by her. Thank you!"
Cons: "My flight from Venice was almost 2 hours late leaving. I missed my connecting flight to Baltimore and was removed from the list even though the Baltimore flight left about 15 minutes late. I had 25 minutes to make it to my connecting flight but was already removed. Airline said I had to be through security within 35 minutes of the flight. I could not get a flight out until the next day."
Pros: "Fast and friendly."
Cons: "My seat did not recline. There was no charger for a phone or screens to watch anything or WiFi on the flight."
Cons: "Didn’t realize you had to pay for coffee or a non-alcoholic drink until after we were asked what we’d like to drink."
Pros: "BA overall service was good."
Cons: "Boarding at venice was a disaster. they changed gate without annoncing it in english. I am sure they did it in Italian but not every travel speaks italian. getting on bus to airplane was not organized at all. staff let people ahead of me taking their carry on bags larger than my normal size bag but asked me to check in mine. i thought perhaps i am amoung the last and there is no room left. how ever while i was waiting they let many others take their carry on with them. i explained them that i have expensive Murrano glass in my carry on and prefer not to check in or at least provide a tag to mark it fragile. response was that we are out of tag! and i have no choioce. i was very upset theway they trreated me and told them i will file a complain and took their picture. almost by the time i was getting on bus one of crew approached me with at Fragile tag to add to my bag. after all when i received my carry on bag in LAX many of my gifts were smashed and broken."
Pros: "Easy on and off the plane"
Cons: "Having to take the shuttle to the gate."
Pros: "The crew was so kind and helpful!"
Pros: "I liked the fact that boarding and exiting the plane was fairly quick. There were 2 exits we used which sped up the process."
Cons: "The rude British Airways representatives at check in should be retrained. One gentleman asked me if I wanted to check in my carry on because the flight was full. He said it was optional and I said no. He continued to pressure me into doing this and I clearly told him no several times. I guess he got upset that I didn’t wanna check in my bags that he asked me to place my SMALL CARRY ON (my backpack) in the luggage size checker to verify it fit. It did fit except a small part poked out because I had stuffed some souvenirs in there. It was clearly small and could clearly fit under my seat, but he said I had to check it in. This angered me but I kept my cool and walked away. Customer service doesnt start with British Airways."
Cons: "No free snacks neither a cup of water."
Pros: "Free drinks"
Cons: "Tvs were dated"
Cons: "Drinks not complimentary. The tickets we bought come with one checked bag for free, but the airline said since we bought it on Kayak it doesn't come with a free checked bag. Had to pay an extra $40 for each. Deceptive policy if you ask me on behalf of British Airways."
Pros: "Clean plane; friendly crew..."
Cons: "BA charges for everything on the plane, even water!"
Pros: "Boarding was swift and timely, seats ok"
Cons: "There was an engine problem and they told us while we were taxiing. Went back for more check nd fierce several trials they had to repair the problem. This cause a delay of two hour during which we had to sit in the plane and no drinks or snacks of any kind were offered. But what’s worse there were vague, confused and misleading information given both by the captain and the crew regarding the connecting flights. As matter of fact, although I arrived with a two hour delay and had only one hour for my connection, I followed the instructions and run like hell(literally)to the boarding gate. I made it for a few minutes. The personnel was very friendly and helpful and they made all they could to check me on the flight just to find out BA had cancelled my booking even before my arrival to London. I made it home and they apologized but this is not how I expected BA to handle a delay(which I understand can happen)."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, and the flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. There was not enough room for people to wait, no queuing in place nor priority boarding. We were in row 19 (so mid way through the plane) and by the time the refreshment trolley got to us a large majority of the food AND drink was sold out - seemed very strange!"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Charged for checking luggage when I shouldn't have been. Had to board a bus to get to plane. Charge for on board soft drinks."
Cons: "Food, but surprised that they served anything!"
Pros: "Nothing. A large group (100) of passengers flying from Venice to Heathrow to make our connections to the US were redirected to Gatwick Airport 10 hours after our original departure time. No British Airways personnel was presen"
Cons: "Hated every minute of it."
Pros: "Arrived alive"
Cons: "Indifferent inflight service is probably a compliment. The worst insult was to the 120 passengers whose flight to Heathrow was cancelled. They waited hours for the flight to Gatwick. On arrival BA announced that the buses that were promised by ground staff in Venice had not been arranged because BA didn't have the resources at hand. Useless as usual!"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding and courteous"
Pros: "Flight was smooth."
Cons: "Having to pay for coffee! And it tasted terrible! C'mon!"
Pros: "I liked that I got home safe"
Cons: "I didn't like the 2 hour delay to my schedule. Zero complimentary drinks or snacks to say sorry. Bumpy ride for two and half hours. Stuck on the tarmac at Gatwick for 40 minutes."
Pros: "Dealt nicely"
Cons: "Not much different that cheap airlines"
Pros: "The crew was ON TOP OF IT."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "The lady at check in was the most rude customer service I have ever had. There was confusion with flights and I was trying to check in well before time and she said no it's too late and walked off. I then saw her later at 8:50 (my flight was at 9:25) I said excuse me that was my flight and she goes I'm busy trying to fuel and stormed off. The ladies at the airport tried to help me. So now I have to wait over night at the aiport for 17 hours because the check out lady wouldn't give me 1 minute to speak to her well before check in would've been closed because she was too busy in a hurry and extremely rude!"
Cons: "We checked in exactly 2 hours and 30 minutes before scheduled departure time, as previously instructed when we attempted check-in some three-and-a-half hours before departure. Thus we were, I'm fairly certain, the second couple to check in for the entire flight. I asked the agent if the fare we paid allowed us a checked piece of luggage. She said that, yes, we were entitled to one checked piece per passenger at no charge. That being the case, I asked the agent to issue a refund for the two Checked Baggage fees my wife had paid online. She insisted there was nothing she could do about it and it was totally out of her hands. I explained to her my understanding that such refund must be requested PRIOR TO CHECK-IN, but she reiterated there was nothing she could do, and offered no solution whatsoever. In addition, the agent insisted that we were not allowed to carry-on a cabin bag in addition to a personal item. When I asserted my rights (See Note 1), she had the temerity to say "You should know British Airlines' policy if you buy a ticket." Trying another tack, I asked who DID get to use the overhead lockers, since they were only allowing under-seat sized Personal Items to be brought on-board. She replied that the "no cabin baggage" policy applied "after the first 30 passengers boarded the plane." (Please recall that we were the second couple ON THE ENTIRE PLANE to check-in, and thus should make that artificial "cut-off." (Also, as a Million Mile flyer with your partner, American Airlines, I believe we're entitled to Priority Boarding.) Concerned about the valuable items in the cabin bag she was effectively commandeering, I inquired about the airlines Limits of Liability in case of Loss or Damage. She said she had no idea. I then asked to see a copy of the airline's Conditions of Carriage. But she was either unable or unwilling to provide same. I arrived very, very early to ensure these sorts of problems could be ironed-out before departure, and am frankly appalled by the lack of knowledge, professionalism and judgement the airline exhibited in this instance. Also: On-board service was so incredibly slow, the last two rows were not served until 15 minutes prior to landing. ("There you go, sir. Bottoms up... and be quick about it! ;-) Bill B. Los Angeles, CA USA"
Pros: "Staff where very pleasant."
Cons: "Airport check in was drastically understaffed. The worst I have experienced. Airplane seating was cramped."
Pros: "flight attendants excellent...food was not good.but Fri is were great. Thank you"
Cons: "Boarding by steps, being charged for coffee when all other airlines provide it as complimentary service. morning snack would have been nice. The head flight attendant have a heavy Italian accent and spoke English so fast he couldn't be understood."
Pros: "Timely departure. Free tea and biscuits. No queues at check in. Generous baggage allowance."
Cons: "Very expensive Pre check in seat selection."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing: everything was beyond expectations"
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and helpful. We has disability issues and they were very attentive to our needs."
Cons: "Two pieces of our luggage (my wife's wheelchair and walker) were not forwarded to Heathrow from Venice as I requested and expected. I don't blame the plane crew, but the ground personnel for not following through on what they promised to do. Venice airport did not seem to be very efficient or competent. Our daughter and her boyfriend were traveling with us and could not get seat assignment until they were literally ready to board the plane, so consequently, there checked luggage was also not on the plane in Seattle. We have promised to get our luggage today (9/28/16). I hope so, you have my wife's wheelchair which is making it very hard for us to get around."
Pros: "Flight from Venice to philly was good besides the fact it was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "The 2 hours delay"
Pros: "We made it to our destination."
Cons: "Left late - missed connecting flight in LHR - although the flight hadn't departed - we were already reticketed for later flight (6 hours later). Eight days later, we are still missing a bag!!!"
Pros: "Excellent info provided on why we couldn't exit the plane."
Pros: "Once on board everyone was accommodating and apologetic about long delay in Venice"
Cons: "Venice airport can't seem to handle amount of air traffic. Short staff. three hours to check in with short line. Not Enough buses to take everyone on plane which caused more delays instead of sending a few buses. Once on board staff was great"
