Cons: "We didn’t like how are seats were all messed up, my kids, my wife had all different seatings."

Even though we called emirates customer care to afd oyr name in assistance when we booked the ticket but at airport they said we cannot privide any assistance . Moreover one of our family member had wheel chair assistance they never provided wheel chair at Dubai airport reason being they said they have shortage of wheel chairs. Such a bad experience we had !! I will never recommend anyone to travel with Emirates."

Pros: "I liked the service provided."
Cons: "Would like to see decent vegetarian food options. Also please introduce some variance in your menu. the menu has been the same in the last 3 flights."
Pros: "The overall experience was good from boarding to disembark. emirates is a quality airline with affordable pricing. Planes were neat and clean cabin crew did their job at their best."
Cons: "In some instances their was a shortage of food option. Although the menu said you could have a choice but some of the choices were exhausted by the time crew served it to the half of the travellers and the rest have to eat whatever was leftover. I think Emirates should stock a bit more of the food especially on a plane like Airbus 380. Its a huge aircraft and passengers sting at the vey end had to wait almost 45 min to 1 hr to get their food and that too was whatever leftover. They should make efforts to server all the passengers within a short amount to time rather than keep them waiting for so long. Most of the time more than half of the passengers had already eaten while those sitting in the back were still waiting for their food. Its not cabin crew's inefficiency but rather a policy problem that needs to be addressed."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew was dismissive with questions and concerns about connecting flights"
Pros: "All is good"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was good, with many, many options to choose from. The headphones provided were certainly more comfortable than anything I have experienced on other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding process is chaotic. Especially so in Dubai. Moreover, they do not allow a laptop bag in addition to the normal carry-on baggage. Every other airline I have flown allows this. What is even more frustrating is that a women's purse is allowed, so I saw women carrying giant bags with their laptops, etc. in those bags, whereas I had to stuff mine into my carry-on briefcase. This is not normal (as in, other airlines allow it), is not mentioned in the ticket, not mentioned while given the boarding pass, BUT is strictly enforced at the very last minute right before entering the plane."

Cons: "No reason to complain."
Pros: "The crew was super attentive."
Cons: "The food choices were not good. The tray included more carbs than any thing else...a roll, crackers and breadsticks. A lighter choice of a sandwich or a cheese tray would have been nice. Rather than small cups of water on a 14 hour flight, it would have been nice to have bottles of water."
Pros: "Overall ok, food n entertainment was good"
Cons: "You cannot request seat preference, did not help!!"
Pros: "I am sure I did this review on ce already!"
Pros: "Very organized boarding"
Cons: "For three hours since takeoff we were not served any food or drinks. I was dehydrated and my sugar level had gone low. When they finally served us, they said they did not have a vegetarian meal inspite of my having ordered a hindu vegetarian meal. on creating a ruckus they managed to arrange a vegetarian meal"
Pros: "Crew and service were good. Not a fan of Indian food. Ran out of alternatives. You are leaving India. Might want something other than Indian."

Cons: "Good 8"
Pros: "The crew was very lazy and not professional"
Cons: "Don't stop demanding from the crew"
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."
Cons: "Old planes. Food was okay. Business zeats not too comfortable."
Pros: "Easy, on-time and courteous"
Pros: "Loved the smoked salmon!!"
Cons: "No wifi or tv"
Pros: "Loved my experience with Swiss airlines. Comfortable and pleasant flight."
Pros: "Well managed flow of services, polite and helpful staff, quiet environment, good air in the cabin."
Cons: "Airbus 330 seats are too narrow and the arm rests too high. I am about 5'3" and weigh about 150. I can't imagine what a taller and/or heavier passenger must feel like in these seats. Also I dislike the "nickel and diming" philosophy used by most airlines these days making people pay an extra $29 to reserve a specific seat. Give me a price from the beginning with a seat assignment."
Cons: "Leg room."
Pros: "The food was really great! And the crew was very friendly. Was pleased that everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Seats just as small as US carriers, but in better shape, cleaner, less ratty overall. I also like that Swiss Air doesn't fuss with boarding everyone in 8 different classes. First class through one door and everyone else through the other, nice and easy."
Pros: "Comfortable....customer-service oriented staff. Enjoyable food, and entertainment."
Cons: "Only thing that could have been easier is to offer more self check-in options at the airport. Very courteous staff, and wait wasn't extremely long."
Cons: "Check in"
Cons: "Business class service The hostess forgot my request twice. ..."
Pros: "When we landed"
Cons: "Everything else..."
Cons: "On ticket it said time between flights was 1hr 25min, but as soon as we got off the plane we had to RUN through Zurich airport, where 1000 other people were all trying to funnel down the single escalator to Passport Control, to get to our gate. Then we had to wait in another Passport Control. TERRIBLE and stressful. The actual flight was fine."
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: "I love everything. The aircraft was spacious and clean. The crew excellent and the food very good."
Cons: "I wouldn't say didn't like something but we had to wait 40 min over the time we were suppose to take off. And this is notbody s fault but it was ind of long..."
Pros: "Not very much. At least the staff was friendly."
Cons: "It seems like they always sit me next to the bathrooms. If I'm paying that much for a flight, I don't really appreciate having hordes of people lined up for the bathroom, bumping me constantly. I also don't very much like the door constantly opening and closing, due to noise and the obvious smell. Furthermore, I sat next to a family with 2 screaming babies. Overall, 8 hours of agony. Not a good experience at all."
Pros: "The Swiss personnel both on board and off (check in) were courteous, efficient and very nice."
Cons: "Small spaces between seats"
Pros: "Food wag good, plane comfortable"
Cons: "Transfer at Zurich"
Pros: "Everything!! This airline is a huge breath of fresh (old?) air. It reminded me of how air travel used to be. No baggage charge - we only checked one bag. There was plenty of great food and drink - alcoholic drinks were free. We will definitely look to use SwissAir whenever possible."
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent and they made it a very comfortable flight."
Cons: "No announcement regarding delay. No boarding announcement. Very uncomfortable, older business seats. Actually had a sore back after the flight. Couldn't get comfortable. Travelling companion had the same experience. Small screen."
Cons: "Cervise was not so good was waiting almost 3 hours on check in"
Pros: "Your crew is amazing."
Cons: "Swiss staff was not helpful at all at Zurich airport. I wanted to purchase a day pass in the Business class lounge. They said i could do that but need to do it online. When I couldn't get my device to bring up the right screen they said they couldn't help me. Bad customerbaervixe"
Pros: "The quiches are so yummy, and very compact and easy."
Pros: "The seat, the airport, the service"
Cons: "The tight connection"
Pros: "I was so impressed with my whole experience with Swissair on my recent trip from Miami to Malaga, Spain. Very courteous and friendly crew, up to date aircraft and right on time!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Seating is too tight and uncomfortable and I'm only 5'6"!"
Pros: "Great kosher food! Very kind attendants."
Cons: "not enough foot room."
Pros: "The whole trip was handled extremely well. First time we've done 12 hrs straight in the air. They made the experience seem like it was much less. Will fly that airline again."
Cons: "On my return journey I was told at check in that there were delays that would mean missing my onward journey from Zurich. I was then rerouted through Istanbul with the promise that I would be well compensated for my troubles. I was told that I would receive a certain amount for every hour I was delayed from my original arrival at end destination. Well I arrived 8 or more hours after I had originally expected (and the reason I booked with Swiss Air was because of the timing and the apparent luxury of the flight). Once I got back home and tried to pursue this amazing compensation I received some of the worst customer service ever and received 0 compensation for the experience. Very disappointed and will never fly swiss airlines again."
Pros: "Comfortable business class"
Cons: "Food was not too great"
Pros: "The flight went very smoothly. This was my first international flight and it was a very successful flight. I enjoyed the meals and the flight attendants were very polite."
Cons: "I did not like that the very impolite lady sitting directly in front of me reclined her seat as far as it could recline. As my seat was unable to recline this provided little to no leg room. She refused to compromise. Luckily, I was sitting next to a couple nice gentlemen who switched seats with me."
Pros: "the cabin crew were efficient and very pleasant."
Cons: "Seats not particularly comfortable, video system glitchy, film selection ok, not great. Food was airline food, not much you can say there. The connection gate staff were rude and forced me to check my hand luggage (even though I am disabed and first to board), which had all my medicines in and my computer. The flight wast full and didnt see any other bags gate checked, and there was a bunch of room in the overheads, they werent full. Then to add salt to the wound when we arrived our luggage was dripping water (and it wasnt running at our destination it was at the connection) several clothes were ruined or needed cleaning. As I was on the way to my fathers funeral this was an added pressure that I didnt need."
Cons: "As I had bought the tickets via Air India for a SWISS flight, I was informed that I cannot upgrade to business class, even when I was ready to pay. Inspite of being a SENATOR with the Star Alliance's Miles and More program."
Cons: "Even though I ordered in plenty of time, I was not on their list. I went hungry."
Cons: "The least amount of legroom ever. It should be illegal how close those seats were."
Pros: "Courteous friendly staff everything went super smoothly!!!"
Pros: "As usual, the food and entertainment were very good. Boarding was easy as we just lined up and entered the plane w/o any concern for group #'s, etc..."
Cons: "I was stuck in an aisle seat in the back of the plane where there was literally no leg room - there was a metal box (video equipment?) in the very narrow space underneath the seat in front of me. Luckily there was no one sitting in the middle seat so I could put my legs there. Also, when flying to Europe from the west coast I prefer flying to the east coast first and then taking a red eye."
Pros: "Staff were courteous and there was abundant food and beverage service."
Cons: "No child activities were distributed by the crew (like they did for our return flight)."
Pros: "The best trip to Europe I have had. Good food, great staff. Much better than the domestic airlines I have been on in the past several years!"
Pros: "Great cabin crew, decent food in coach, great entertainment system with many movie choices."
Cons: "Swissair charges extra to reserve a standard, not premium seat in coach. The practice should be disclosed at the time the ticket is purchased, to make comparison shopping easier. Otherwise, it constitutes a hidden fee, and that's what the customer remembers."
Pros: "Very friendly check in clerk ( Andrea ) Easy airport"
Pros: "There was nothing unusual and we got to Zurich on time"
Cons: "The website was confusing, I couldn't check in online for this flight. When I checked in at the airport, I didn't get a boarding pass for the flight from Zurich as the attendant didn't find me in the system, thus it was uncertain if I would get to LAX on time. I was worried that I would not make my flight and I was supposed to work the next day. Fortunately I stopped by the CELEBI counter where Monika Taigiszer provided excellent customer service. After making a few calls she confirmed that my name was on the list and I would not have to worry. In Zurich I got my boarding pass and arrived to L.A. safely."
Pros: "Very professional service throughout this international flight. Flight attendants were friendly and helpful."
Pros: "In time Nice service Delicious Meals Great Movies"
Cons: "No priority for boarding with Children No internet on Board"
Pros: "Big aircraft made it a smooth flight"
Pros: "The leg room in economy class was average. Not too cramped. There were good selection of entertainment options to watch/listen."
Cons: "The care and friendliness of the staff needs improvement. The quality of the food was poor. Additionally the boarding process needs to be better organized. Property sequence and queues need to be maintained and followed through."
Pros: "Attention and comfort"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, decent food and was left alone to sleep after a long day."
Cons: "Didn’t like that I missed original flight by minutes due to chaos of the airport and resolving the issue took about an hour but did like that I was rebooked on the next available flight for no extra charge and the attendant seemed sympathetic to my plight. A simple but important detail."
Cons: "Boarding process could be better. They can board the end rows first and go back to the first rows. This will help with better flow with passengers not blocking the pathways."
Cons: "Flight delays were unimaginable"
Cons: "Perdieron las maletas"
Cons: "Better time management."
Pros: "Good food and crew"
Cons: "Free WiFi"
Pros: "Im stuck in London due to flight delays. I will never book with kayak again. I am so fed up with travel ticket i booked with kayak"
Pros: "I’m so grateful for all the movies"
Cons: "Flight was delayed bc of Pakistan air space so I had to take 3 planes instead of 2"
Pros: "Plane is old and dingy. No charging available and the seats are so uncomfortable. Crew was just ok."
Pros: "Air hostesses was rude in flight from India. I have notice lots of passengers couldn’t speak English and they probably thinks everyone is like that."
Cons: "Tell Air Hostess to be polite if any one asking for something it’s part of their job"
Pros: "Every thing is excillent"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was diverse."
Cons: "Seats in economy were too cramped."

Pros: "Smooth fast flight with good service!"
Cons: "Late taking off which happens, but they tried to make up the time in the air as much as they could on a short flight,"
Pros: "Generally like Lufthansa service - have been flying the airline for 15 years+ Pilots are always excellent"
Cons: "Every flight (to and from India) seems to have the chicken option run out. Why not order accordingly? Had a bad seating experience. LH.com showed that I had completed the boarding process. But when I went to the counter, my seat was changed without my consent (to a worse seat), and I was told that the online process wasn't complete!! Then the website should say accordingly. It's really annoying when this happens. I think the ground crew in New Delhi duped me. At one point, my call button for my meal was ignored for ~30 minutes on the plane. And then I was told there was no more chicken, and handed a veggie wrap. One wonders whether I could have gotten chicken 30 minutes ago!"
Cons: "They made me sit next to a special needs person and did not warn me. I didn’t signup to keep helping the elderly."
Pros: "overall experience is great"
Cons: "seats would have better"
Cons: "Two flights delayed then no bags when we got to Chicago- disappointing and annoying. Great to arrive with no coats in winter!"
Pros: "Early flight, from getting on the plane to out at bag check it took less than an hour! Flight was not full so middle seats were also free."
Cons: "Nothing, great flight!"
Pros: "Great service, on time departures and arrivals, lie flat seats in business class. The planes were relatively new. Waiting lounges at Delhi and Frankfurt are well stocked with food."
Cons: "Almost nothing"
Pros: "Staff and flight were great. We were surrounded by kind of rude flyers. They complained when my husband moved the seat back. And they were just standing in the aisle most of the time. Person in front of me stretched her arms over the seat so her hands were dangling in front of me and fingers in my screen. I know we were in coach, but maybe another inch of separation would be nice for such long flights."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "My wife has an I797 document. Lufthansa didn't recognize it and I had to book her a business class flight on Qatar airways."
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Crew was very very rude , special meals were not provided in spite of being confirmed many weeks before"
Cons: "bad business class experience, requested assistance 2 but only one came that alsoafter so much hassel will never travel or recommend"

Pros: "Courteous service."
Cons: "Food is bland, unimaginative and below par. No english news papers."

Cons: "The 1-star responses correspond to N/A. Mt flight was :30."
Pros: "The airlines gives the best flights possible."
Pros: "Ground Staff helpful. Cockpit pilots communicated effectively. Cabin staff was courteous."
Cons: "The wait prior to takeoff. Flight departed late. The gate counters at IGIA, New Delhi were allowing some passengers to pre-board early even though the passenger was not senior citizen or handicapped, or family with children. Food from New Delhi to Frankfurt was less than optimal in taste."
Pros: "Great services and very good food."
Pros: "Food snacks were awful."
Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff"
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "I appreciated the advance boarding for families traveling with younger children. Plenty of time to settle in with the kiddos."
Cons: "This airline has little respect for its customers. In the economy/coach cabin, they squeeze the seat distances to such an extent that, when the person in front of you leans their chair back, you cannot get out of your seat at an upright angle. You have to significantly bend your body. To not loose your balance, you have to grab on to the seat in front of you and that disturbs the other passenger. If they're sleeping, they can be woken up by that. Lufthansa does not care much for its passengers. Nor do many other companies, for that matter, but I think Lufthansa is taking things further than most airlines. It is a disgrace. Their brand is not what it once was."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "wheel chair crew ignored us during boarding. my mother had to walk to the gate which was very difficult"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "changing seat assignment"
Cons: "Leg space is tight"

Cons: "I don't eat much on long flights so I don't have much to share, though I did feel that food quality can be better. To be fair, the same comments apply to all other airlines that I have flown, with Emirates being the exception. No big issues for me personally, though."
Pros: "Everything was great. Never flying again from any other flight"
Cons: "Couldn't checkin online. Had to wait in line for over an hour."

Cons: "Seating is cramped"
Cons: "The airline lost my suitcase and deliver it only 72 hours later... They refused to give me proper compensation for items that were broken..."
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"

Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."

I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."

Cons: "Not much to comment on here."

Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"

What a cluster mess. Will never fly with KLM airlines and would not recommend. Will spend a little extra money and fly on other airlines......very poor, disorganized, and horrendous flight experience. Buyer beware."
