Pros: "The approach into Venice airport was to the NE so the flight path gave a perfect areal tour of venice out the right side of the plane."

Crappy in-flight entertainment with non-intuitive controls. Poor air conditioning. I felt like I was stuffed in a cage for 7 hours. Way worse than United domestic."
Pros: "Good product"
Cons: "Seat had some problems, but the crew fixed it for me"
Pros: "I was flying business class so staff, food, etc was excellent"
Cons: "I do not understand why arriving to checkin with 90 min, on a DIRECT flight, in business class they can decide to not lead luggage at ZRH. We had to wait for all luggage to come out, then go to lost and found, what is more puzzling is that then they tell you the luggage will be loaded on next flight, arrive at night, but will not deliver it until after 3PM on next day. This is flying business class. Swiss begins to feel like a low cost"
Pros: "Friendly Crew , modern and spacious aircraft B777"

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "This is ever the first time we flew with Swiss air and will be the last time. The seats are too tight. If the person in front of you inclined his chair for better comfort, then there is quite challenging for you trying to get out of your seat for washroom etc. The crew services were terrible. Between meals time, there were completely no services such as offering water/drink etc.-did not see a single soul of them, especially on a 9 hours long haul flight! The food was ok. The only thing I like was the chocolate handed out at the end of the journey."

Pros: "Crew were nice. It was a very quiet flight so plenty of room to move to other seats - see below."
Cons: "Although the flight was probably less than half full, by the time the trolley got to us there was only one choice of lunch. People in front reclined their seats right back into our faces.

Pros: "overall it was ok but the service between chicago-istambul and return is superb"
Cons: "Just the difference in the service between delhi-istambul and istambul-delhi is so much lower grade than the service from chicago-istambul and istambul-chicago it is a real turn off"

Cons: "Well,my whole trip was an adventure! I booked it online but in reality, it wasn't what was advertised. There was a problem with my checked in bag, so i had to pay 22 pounds extra to fit it in a connection flight and now i have to send receipt to get the refund. On my way back, there was a delay, so"
Pros: "New-ish aircraft"

Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Cons: "Better time management."

Pros: "Good food and crew"
Cons: "Free WiFi"
Pros: "Nothing at all, whole experience was incredibly stressful"

Long line for the frankly bizarre security check despite never leaving the terminal, incredibly rude staff at Frankfurt airport, all wearing may we help badges, so kind of answered their own question. Check in staff once we had sprinted th length of the terminal very rude"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, great seats in economy with lots of legroom."
Pros: "The crew was ok. The seating was comfortable as we had good leg room as we booked on a premium economy class."
Cons: "We requested for a chicken meal at dinner time but instead my husband and I was served the beef meal. I was very disappointed as firstly the way the beef was cooked tasted horrid. Secondly a mix up at the catering dept like labelling beef meal as chicken should never happen!"
Cons: "Turbines did not start up initially. 1h delay."
Cons: "Los Angeles to Frankfurt on an A380 was great. Flight to Tel Aviv was good. But trying to navigate around Frankfurt was very difficult."

Pros: "Plane is old and dingy. No charging available and the seats are so uncomfortable. Crew was just ok."

Cons: "Tell Air Hostess to be polite if any one asking for something it’s part of their job"
Cons: "I checked bags asking “is the baggage delivery fast at Frankfurt”. “Much taste than Edinburgh” was the reply (Edinburgh is reeeeaaaaallllly slow). Sadly Frankfurt too is slow."
Pros: "Every thing is excillent"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was diverse."
Cons: "Seats in economy were too cramped."
Pros: "Good crew unlike previous experience few months ago."
Pros: "Nothing to say anything flight has been cancelled two time. My all commitment collapsed. Finally took train. Very worst service."
Cons: "Flight shouldn't cancel at any cause even one passenger booked air ticket. Otherwise have to inform one day earlier. Lufthansa air service is very worst."
Pros: "Nothing to say anything flight is cancelled two time. Fed up of Lufthansa service."
Cons: "Change flight rules and regulations. Shouldn't cancel any flight even one passenger booked air ticket. Lufthansa is very worst service."
Pros: "Staff were very nice. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "App or website didn’t work for check in. Lines at the airport were very long. The flight was over booked so I didn’t get a seat until at the gate. Overall too much hassle. Food options in the plane were horrible for vegans/allergies"
Cons: "1hr 20 minutes late"
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "The worst food I have ever had the displeasure of having in my mouth. The staff kept bumping into me and therefore did not sleep at all."
Pros: "Short flight, snacks, timely take off and landing."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "The meals were very good!"
Cons: "The whole experience"
Cons: "Look like everybody to not know what they want to do"
Pros: "Very friendly atmosphere at boarding gate & helpful crew on journey, plus surprisingly good food foe economy class made for positive feel to this trip. Add to it the fact I caught a movie I'd missed seeing at cinema plus even getting a few hours sleep, this was probably one of my better long haul flights in recent times."
Pros: "All the full service airlines are pretty good in the air. But what sets apart Lufthansa is it's ground staff. On the previous occasion I had left behind my waist bag on the seat containing passports, cash and cards. Their lost and found desk retrieved it quickly, absolutely intact. On the last occasion, my mother in law, who is over 85 was taken care of very well at not only Delhi but especially at the Frankfurt airport. I must truly acknowledge young lady Jessica's efforts, in ensuring that everything was handled very caringly by her personally, for an old lady at the Frankfurt airport."
Pros: "Decent food."
Cons: "No onboard entertainment."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. There was a terrible backlog in Security at Frankfurt Airport. This is not Lufthansa's fault but considering how important Frankfurt is, you would think the airlines would say something. The flight was late. There were no proper queues for boarding. Everone was mixed up, business, gold card, economy, and only one person doing the chekcing of boarding passes. It was not the best process."
Pros: "Check in was swift and efficient. Boarding was organised and flight attendants were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Cancelled flight and transferring me on turkish airlines again the flight was delayed over three hours.,obviously we have missed our connection flight to Beirut and now waiting in front the hotel desk because the first flight to Beirut is 12:25 pm , I have lost 2 days from my holiday,I'm very tired and upset, I will never use kayak ever again and I will tell all my friends and family to avoid it."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Late night flight was kept dark so we could rest - wonderful dinner menu, surprising for plane food."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so there was a bit of a chaos boarding but it has nothing to do with the service itself."
Pros: "We were traveling to cancun, the best part is we picked up our bags just in our final destination."
Pros: "The business cabin was excellent for a European airline."
Cons: "Cancelled flight."
Pros: "Great service, comfy plane, smooth ride."
Pros: "Probably, one of the best companies: punctual, polite and comfortable!"

Pros: "Evry thing but the dilay"
Cons: "If we arrive on time"
Cons: "Flight cancelled without communication, zero customer service, awful experience, will never fly Aeroflot again"
Pros: "best good food"

Pros: "Service was excellent. For this long flight, we chose premium economy. It was very good and a lot more room then standard economy"
Pros: "Comfortable flight and good timing."
Cons: "Vegetarian food is very poor quality."
Cons: "Can bend the seat, don’t have to walk and back on the airport"
Pros: "Smooth boarding, excellent crew."
Cons: "Quality of the food could be better for a business ticket. Bread like a stone and not warmed."
Pros: "Both legs were not yet so I was able to spread out a little. Both flights were punctual, despite having to de-ice the plane before take off."
Cons: "The announcements were spoken very quickly. Both Russian and English. It was hard to understand , especially with the English translation"
Cons: "Flight got delayed got new boarding pass of next day."
Pros: "Everything nothing"
Pros: "the food was delicious and the flight was smooth, the crew was friendly"
Cons: "navigation for the tv was extremely difficult."
Pros: "A simple connecting flight turned into a complete joke!!! Somehow, despite flying Aeroflot all the way from Sofia to St Pete, the tickets sold to us were sold via Bulgaria Air, which meant we had to collect suitcases and re-check them at Moscow, all while we were not checked-in for the second leg!! LastMinute.Com is hands down the WORST travel website in the history of travel websites, as the above was not disclosed at any time. NEVER again will I even entertain booking via them."
Cons: "LastMinuye.Com - the worst experience ever ... and now thankfully never again"
Pros: "Best crew, good entertainment system with lots of films, good food (including special food)."
Cons: "Low leg space. Unable to select seats with bigger space even for an additional price."
Pros: "Nuff said, having a gold Aeroflot card is nice"
Cons: "Asked them bot to sit us at the far end near the toilets and guess what.....last tier next to the toilets!! Broke my son’s bugaboo bee pushchair 2nd time due to the way they handle it as they through them instead of caring for them. Service in moscow is very poor."
Pros: "Some cabin crew tried to do good job Flights were on time"
Cons: "Checkin at SVO terminal D is total disaster. Understaffed counters, hours long lines, lack of instructions and assistance. On oversees flight 4 out of 6 lavatories were out of service. Cabin crew were in such hurry that they missed our row couple times. They served water only 4 times for 10 hours flight and refused to give a whole bottle for some bogus security concern."
Cons: "No tv screen from cai to moaco9"
Cons: "They don't take visa if u have excess lugguge"
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "on time efficient boarding - comfortable seating"
Cons: "no entertainment but who cares on short flight"
Cons: "I was in the cue to board the plane and the Aeroflot employee just told me that bording is closed, then 7 other passengers came after me and no one was allowed to bored. They literally just didnt let us enter the plane saying that boarding is complete and they don’t care."
Pros: "Good aircraft. Nice flight with professional crew. No delays."
Cons: "Poor snack (one sandwich and mineral water only)"
Pros: "Plane, level of service"
Cons: "Passport control at the UK border"
Pros: "Generous meals with great food choice. Professional crew. Excellent choice of entertainment to fill the sleepless night."
Cons: "Unless I was doing something wrong, long-haul economy seats barely recline. Combine that with quite limited legroom, and an overnight flight can turn into a questionable experience."
Pros: "Generous meals with great food choice. Professional crew (even though live announcements are barely understandable). Aircraft seems quite new."
Cons: "Not once have I seen an Aeroflot flight to take off at the advertised time. Yet, online reports show a perfect picture, with an occasional departure ahead of schedule. However, that means only gate being closed. Further preparations take quite some time more, and actual take off can start much later than expected."
Pros: "the crew was very good but the food was very bad frozen can't eat it is will never fligh again with this flight"
Pros: "Fast boarding at Sheremetyvo Airport."
Cons: "Food was awful. No tea or coffee after the meal. Long delay at Sheremetyvo on taxeyway for de-icer. Audio system on in flight entertainment was high pitched. Screen was dark even with added contrast. Seats rather cramped."
Cons: "Was never informed in advance by the airline of almost 9 hours delay. Airline staff was well aware but never made any effort to send emails or text messages. Highly unprofessional attitude."
Pros: "Some of the typical premium economy features in the economy class - like the slippers and eye masks, open snack bar, menu for meals."
Cons: "Limited choice in alcohol. No whiskey. No healthy options in snack bar."
Pros: "Some of the typical premium economy features in the economy class - like the slippers and eye masks, open snack bar, ice cream between meals, menu for meals."
Cons: "Limited choice in alcohol. No whiskey. No healthy options in snack bar."
Pros: "The only thing I liked in the entire trip was when an official at the Moscow airport gave me a front seat on the plane upon request since I had a bus to catch."
Cons: "Rude air hostesses."
Cons: "Food could've been a lot better. I ordered Asian vegetarian and I was amused at how much better some of the competitors are in terms of taste and variety"
Pros: "There is not a single thing I liked about my travelling with aeroflot"
Cons: "There were countless things I hated about aeroflot 1. Air hostesses have mediocre English speaking skills. I asked where the entertainment console was stowed at, the air hostess stared at me for like 10 min until she finally understood the question. 2. My flight from Moscow to New York got cancelled without any prior notification. They did not answered any calls. I had to go to their booking office to resolve the matter. I would highly suggest not to fly with aeroflot in future."
Cons: "Communication was bad. Flight was delayed and little to no information was provided to passengers."
Cons: "Unpleasant staff lost luggage- we were two days in Shangai without lugage"
Pros: "Aeroflot is SUPER!"
Cons: "I was unable to sit with my wife and daughter. And I was iseated beside a mother with a child on her lap, which was not pleasant, although not the child's fault of course."
Pros: "Very friendly and kind cabin crew on all 4 flights. Food was good and enjoyed the ice cream treat! Was upgraded to business class on one flight and that was such a delight. Thank you Aeroflot!"
Pros: "The crew was real pleasant"
Cons: "20 min late Lost luggage. Afte 7days not delivered"
Cons: "AIroflot is a very cheap airline. I'll try to avoid flying with them again"
Cons: "Our luggage got stuck in Moscow. We have to wait until the next day to receive our things which results in the possibility of things we bought and need refrigerating getting spoiled.... This somehow ruined the experience.."
Cons: "Without an explanation or apology given my partner and I had to seat far from each other. We were just told that the plane was full and no effort was made to simply apologise or reciprocate..."
Pros: "awesome - planes, staff, food, all great - smooth, courteous and friendly. The best airline!"
Cons: "Was late Food not good Screrns are so bad"
Pros: "Good airplane. Good crew (but we didn't hear first pilot). Good meal."

Pros: "comfortable seats with good leg room"
Cons: "Unexpected delay for initial flight from delhi to moscow and no information provided before reaching the airport."
Pros: "The soda watee"
Cons: "Bitter staff, hideous food, bag never made the connection, seats cramped af, dirty planes..."
Pros: "Having requested assistance due to breaking my leg, the service at Heathrow, Charlotte and JFK with American Airlines was excellent."
Cons: "Finnair are hellbent on trying to sell goods and continuously interrupt the movies with their confounded announcements every 15 minutes very annoying. If i wanted to buy something its in their mag and as a regional flight it should include some form of nourishment other than juice or coffee one off, tight fisted and not a descent selection of food either"
Pros: "Keep it up with great services. !! Thank you!"
Pros: "Loved the wine hour, location, access to bikes and lovely breakfast buffet! Service was super friendly, too."
Cons: "I hate paying for water but I seem to do this all over town."
Pros: "Fell asleep and didn’t even realise. Finnair is very friendly and the staff are super nice. I was very thirsty and asked for two cups of water instead of one and the lady was not hesitant to give me two cups in quick succession. Very good air company"
Cons: "Nothing really too bad, you get what you expected. May of been nice to have a free sandwich as it’s a non stop flight - this is because Lufthansa has one stopover and offers a free sandwich and drink."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Free bags under Corbin"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, no leg room, no space between seats and the trays hit ones’s stomach. The whole experience was very uncomfortable. The food was awful. Overheated and not cooked through at the same time. Breakfast was odd. Non-Greek yoghurt and cashews. Just strange."
Pros: "The crew were professional and courteous"
Cons: "Nothing, as it’s a short flight!"
Cons: "The only reason this flight was not excellent is my bag was left in Helsinki and not transferred with final flight leg to Manchester"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Lovely crew, very good entertainment system."
Pros: "The fact that we were offered an additional round of water and the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "The transfer was a disaster. We had to go through the security check (even though the transfer was in the Schengen area) and almost missed our connecting flight."
Pros: "I was i business class and the crew were very good"
Cons: "nothing as it was not a long flight, only 3 hours"
Pros: "I got to my destination"
Cons: "Endless waiting and lost luggage. Excuse was unpredicted weather conditions. It was snowing in Finland so they had to clear the Ice from the planes.. Snowing in Finland? How uncommon is that during December? I think most of this is poor ground handling In Helsinki."
Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Endless waiting and lost luggage. Excuse was unpredicted weather conditions. It was snowing in Finland so they had to clear the Ice from the planes.. Snowing in Finland? How uncommon is that during December? I actually think most of this is poor ground handling In Helsinki."

Cons: "No choice of food and service was quite slow but meal was fine the breakfast was ghastly a continental option would be much better"

Cons: "Plane could use a deep clean. Entertainment choices were limited in terms of latest blockbusters."
Pros: "It was on one of their newer planes which meant that we had decent comfort and entertainment!"
Cons: "The seats were staggered between the middle and sides, so my family was eventually split across two rows. I hadn't expected that."
Pros: "Speedy boarding process, good meal choices."
Cons: "Plane was a little dirty. Entertainment was also a little limited in terms of new releases."
Pros: "Speed boarding process."
Cons: "No entertainment system on a 3 hour flight..."
Pros: "I enjoy my flight"
Cons: "Again no complains"
Pros: "Boarding was ok in Dublin, even though they habitually use one of the poor gates with inadequate seating and entry to the plane from the tarmac, not via a bridge. queing and check in were well managed however."
Cons: "Disembarked at Helsinki unto a bus. Despite landing roughly on time, this antiquated procedure effectively made the flight 20 mins late, as that’s when the passengers got to the terminal."
Pros: "Service good. Staff good"
Cons: "Very cold at night"
Pros: "All good, especiallly cabin crew who appear to actually enjoy their jobs and interacting with passenger (unlike some supposedly premium carriers)."

Pros: "The staff were exceptional , good food."
Cons: "Not really business class seats."
Pros: "Flew on new A350, liked the seat TV, live map/camera. Good selection of entertainment."

Pros: "The staff was professional and friendly. The waits were short on boarding."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late. The baggage reclaim belt broke down, which delayed our arrival at the target even more."

Pros: "Good smooth flight, on time. No complaints"
Pros: "Flight and crew were nice. Entertainment was ok, but hard to use screen functions. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food was terrible."
Pros: "Good flight, on time, nice crew"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive to Helsinki and has been two days since I have inform and they said it was going to come the next flight but didn't sent it. I have been two days with the same cloths and no cleaning products, so disappointing they don't seem to care of all the inconvenience I have been experiencing."
Pros: "Most Improved Player - Finnair has done the best experience in overall long haul flights out of the 40plus airlines I have flown in the last 3 years; brand new planes, nice and diverse cabin crew, beautiful lightings videos details chocolates etc, best entertainment system in the industry, and things always go smooth in Helsinki airport. Awesome imrpovement over recent years."
Cons: "Big struggle for airlines still remains varying quality customer service. Finnair still seems to struggle with this occasionally. Finnair can work harder to keep customer service quality high. Hate to say it, but perhaps letting the bitter, last generation flight attendants who seem to have a grudge about the decline of the glamour and benefits of the job as flying has become commonplace with more competition (seen this on Finnair & N America’s older airlines line United)"
Pros: "good service in spite of rather crammed conditions and short flight, UK newspaper was available, plenty of leg room (biz class consisting of one row in the front:))) - the lucky 4 in that 1st row were the only ones to get food, and also drink for free, it seems... and yes, the flight was short and otherwise uneventful, I was the 1st to walk off the plane."
Cons: "The plane was a tiny oldish commuter jet with 2 seats on each side of the aisle. In "biz class" you still had to rub elbows with your neighbor, something other airlines with newer planes have sorted out, but allowing extra space between seats.... but overall, for a short flight (not much longer than an average subway commute in NYC), it really was not a huge deal...."
Pros: "The cabin crew were veey vwey friendly and nice to the passengers."
Cons: "The entertainment system was little outdated( ie. lacks HD screens) and the seats were uncomfortable for night flights."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Food menu from Finland to Chicago could use a few more choices"
Cons: "Security service in Helsinki is quite unprofessional. It does not understand EU Security Rules for liquids at airports. Where do they find such guys?"

Cons: "Lack of snacks"
Cons: "long waiting time in the bus before the flight"
Pros: "Great service, staff and punctuality"
