Cons: "They asked me to pay for my luggages. It is strange"
Pros: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing."

Pros: "Food / movies"
Cons: "Comfort/ staff"
Pros: "Unexpected food/snacks that were provided.Good crew and the plane was on time."

Pros: "The head fligh attendant was very nice and welcoming and informative she personally took care of our carry on to put in the check in..."
Cons: "I was not able to buy from the duty free discounted offers on the plane. The discounted shopping panflet was not on my LA/Zurich flight.... so I didn't see it and did not buy then.... And on my second part of the trip Zurich/Nice they refused to sell me to me from the Duty Free because they didn't have time..... :( The dark hair flight attendant in the back of that plane was not informative or nice....I had to talk to the head flight attendant in the front of the plane, she was more professional! Other than that everything was good!"
Pros: "I love Swiss Airlines, would definitely book with them in the future"
Cons: "8 kilo limit on carry-on luggage. Customer service attendant issuing boarding passes was less than friendly."
Pros: "100% the best flight experience I've ever had flying. Wish I flew to Europe more so I could fly with Swiss more often. Thanks!"
Cons: "Boarding chaotic- no clear lines people pushing ahead which I am not used to- my handluggage was ok’ed at origin in US- was pulled aside in Zurich based on my “ ticket”- it was perfectly well suited and not oversized. In plane half of overhead compartments were filled with coats when told that these should go under seats. No consistency between announcements and behavior of crew."
Pros: "Friendly service and food"
Cons: "Older plane with no entertainment"
Pros: "Quick and easy- no problems. We had drink service and a yummy croissant. Flights attendants were really nice and spoke great English."
Pros: "Good service - including snacks and drinks. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Upon boarding, the agents in the airport gave us a hard time over a bag that definitely met carry-on requirements. Almost made us check it, and then changed their mind last minute. Very unnecessary/dramatic situation, especially since we flew with that bag via carry-on multiple times (and on even smaller planes)."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, good legroom in economy, excellent meals."
Pros: "I am very satisfied and I will recommended it to my friendships"
Pros: "It was okay. No complaints. I appreciated that I was given a seat near the front to run and make my next flight."
Cons: "my ticket was changed and messed up and could be due to language and understanding, I ran a lot to get to my flight and had to go back and forth between the check in line and ground force and wait out of line until a resolution was found."
Pros: "Flight crew were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Delay in BCN for an hour"
Pros: "the food was delicious, the movie selection was great, the seats were comfortable, the plane was chilly but they supplied us all with nice warm blankets, and I prefer it be cold over hot on the plane any day."
Cons: "The line at the check in was quite long. Luckily I had only carryon"
Cons: "Check in"
Pros: "The crew members were professional and we really appreciate their high quality of service. Love the food and we enjoyed the wide selections of entertainment that was provided."
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."
Cons: "Our luggage was left behind in Zurich after an unnecessary gate check. There were plenty of room in the overhead bins, and we purposefully bought the luggage because they were sized for bin storage."
Cons: "Worst experience. Very rude employees. Not great flexibility with carry on luggage beware"
Pros: "Snack offered was tasty"
Cons: "No USB charger in seat"
Pros: "The planes were clean and in good repair. The staff was well trained, polite, efficient. The food was excellent. Our entire experience with Swiss Air was the best in ten weeks of travel we have completed this year."
Cons: "There was nothing that disappointed us in our experience with Swiss Air."
Pros: "Food wag good, plane comfortable"
Cons: "Transfer at Zurich"
Cons: "Flight from Barcelona was delayed for 2 hours, so we missed the flight from Zurich to New York."
Cons: "Minimalist breakfast."
Pros: "The plane was remarkable and the service was excellent!"
Cons: "The wifi on the plane was horrible."
Pros: "The food was great, the seats were thin and we had a lot of room and the staff was super!"
Cons: "Nothing, we would have stayed in this airplane longer...."
Cons: "priority luggage arrived in SFO about 30 mins after regular luggage"
Pros: "Comfy, loved the individual Tvs and food was great!"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment."
Cons: "There is no question about check-in?? My ticket, booked through Kayak, did not state that no baggage is included. The Swiss air just said I should have picked it up from the booking and forced me to pay Euro 30, which I will claim back from Kayak. This is gross misrepresentation and on the same ticket flying a luggage was included."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and accommodating."
Pros: "It was fairly comfortable & the staff was pleasant. The initial leg from BCN to Frankfurt went very smoothly."
Cons: "The flight 2nd flight from Frankfurt to Boston was significantly delayed for a variety of issues, and ( though not really within Lufthansa’s control) the security at Frankfurt was easily the most disorganized & poorly run situation I’ve ever encountered. There was almost constant interruption for announcements at the outset, with information that wasn’t necessary & actually made waiting for an extra hr + more frustrating. I give the crew/staff credit for doing their jobs well enough that it still managed to be a decent flight in the end."
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Cons: "Both outbound and inbound flights had defective/nonfunctional entertainment screens at our seats."
Pros: "The crew was really wonderful. They went the extra mile- pun intended- to make sure me and my family were comfortable. They were especially kind to my daughter. The plane was also great, very clean and well equipped. The 8 hours from Munich to JFK flew by very quickly."
Pros: "The flight was fine, but there was not enough time to transfer between the gates in Frankfurt. That also did not give us enough time for our luggage to transfer."
Cons: "Longer transfer between flights in Frankfurt"
Cons: "They lost 2 pieces of luggage in Munich. We are only here on 3 day vacay and will not have our bags until same time tomorrow."
Cons: "Im tall and couldn’t affort the better spaced seats so I was pretty cramped on most flights and I paid over $200 to even get those, just so my wife and I could sit together."
Pros: "Crew was great and friendly"
Cons: "It would be nice if the seats had more leg room. Staff was super nice. Food is not bad"
Pros: "Nothing except the crew were very efficient and helpful"
Cons: "Economy seats. No recline. THAT IS NOT BUSINESS CLASS - This is a joke! Putting an empty seat in the middle does not make it business class. Mis-leading seat image when selecting seats. Shows Buisness class large and 2X2 and Economy at 3x3. When you get on the plane it just a one large economy plane with a mark in business "Extra space for you in the middle seat". Food was cold food - no hot food on the whole plane - only hot coffee. I am not paying 4 times the amount to get economy seats that I can get and most probably get lucky and have an empty seat next to me. STAR ALLIANCE IS REALLY GOING DOWN AND LUFTHANSA IS THE WORST. Will never travel Lufthansa business class every again."
Pros: "Non eventful flight."
Pros: "Standard German efficiency. Neither good nor bad."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Good crew and plane"
Cons: "Terrible bag check before security, very long and disorganized"
Pros: "Got the exit row (great)!"
Cons: "Flight was a bit delayed but retrieving the bags took a long time. Short flight but food wasn’t appealing and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Barcelona airport is beautiful. The Chechen in staff was helpful and arranged wheelchair assistance for all legs of my flight"
Cons: "We requested extra leg room seats on the bulkhead. We did not get them which was not a big deal on this leg of the flight but on the flight from Frankfurt to SFO which was 10+ hours, was miserable"
Pros: "Gentle crew"
Cons: "1,5 hours delay again"
Pros: "Breakfast & ease of boarding."
Cons: "Business class with normal seats and empty seat in the middle is not the same."
Pros: "Short flight with efficient service and coffee"
Cons: "Weather delay caused us (and hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of other travelllers) to miss connections. Lufthansa lost our luggage, and to get rid of us, told us they would send it to the hotel we had to check into on account of the overnight delay. They never delivered the luggage, and other employees later told us over the phone that this was not going to happen. The terminal was filled with tired and frustrated travelers, and to make matters worse, the Lufthansa staff were temperamental and condescending to many. At the peak of the chaos, the Lufthansa staff went out on break, while hundreds waited in line for over 8 hours. We expected more - much more - in one of Lufthansa’s own German domestic hubs."
Pros: "family line at check in made boarding a breeze."
Cons: "Two hours to unload my luggage!"
Pros: "It’s amazing. Fast and comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was great. It was only a short flight, so we only got a c0okie, but what a cookie!! Big and soft and super tasty. And the coffee was quite good. Germany has never been known for its superb coffee, but this coffee was very good. None of that fakey airline taste to it at all. Could easily be the gourmet coffee you'd serve at home. You DO serve gourmet coffee at home, right? And water and juice and then more water and more juice, all served up by very nice people--not just good service personnel, good people. Baggage pickup was quick and smooth--I travel with my cat, so pickup can be rocky. Nothing to it here."
Cons: "I liked everything, so am leaving this box completely blank. Completely, I tell you!! Stop reading this!!"
Cons: "Leg space"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "small seat despite being in business class"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and everything went smoothly. I was able to change my seat."
Pros: "This was our first time flying with Lufthansa and it was our favorite airline so far!! The flight attendants are why our experience was so great, they are so kind and helpful"
Cons: "They charged 40 Euro for baggage. On the charge again? Why this was not on any agreement International flights one baggage suppose to be free"
Cons: "Crew members were awful and rude and unhelpful. I landed in Munich and had to run to my next flight and when I asked a Lufthansa staff for help in making my connecting flight he turned to me and said "I don't care-this isn't my problem" upon finally making it for last boarding call to my next flight the staff were rude and unhelpful-I was so stressed I literally had a stomachache and felt completely unwelcome."
Pros: "Timing was on schedule"
Cons: "I had to pay 142 euros for my bags. I'm united Global and never have to pay for my bags. I don't mind a fee, but that was ridiculous!"
Pros: "Not good"
Cons: "Long lines and chaos at counters two hours waiting -- poor hotel provided-- poor food -- so awful. Now I hope we can get home today"
Cons: "Systems were down. And it was chaos getting the boarding passes. Nothing was communicated to us until over an hour waiting in line. My daughter was miserable waiting as everyone passed by us, bumping into her and not apologizing."
Pros: "fast, efficient, on time. Friendly crew"
Pros: "Cleanliness of the plane, brand new plane, delicious food, real silverware, Plesant crew, love the entertainment"
Cons: "Chaos when getting in the plane. First come first serve which could lead to problems. Everyone wants to get in the plane at once"
Cons: "Me ubicaron en el último asiento y no se podía reclinar."
Pros: "Absolutely the worst flight land and air stewards i havr ever seen. Would never flu with them againrude groun personel"
Cons: "The airplane left Barcelona late and arrived in Frankfurt late. Lufthansa only allowed a 45 minute layover in Frankfurt to catch our connecting flight to Seattle. Because we arrived late - we only had 20 minutes to catch our connecting flight to Seattle. What made this an awful experience is that the flight from Barcelona landed at Gate A - our connecting flight was at Gate Z. This was as about as far away from each gate as you could get. This was over a mile to run in order to catch our connecting flight - I hurt my hamstring during the run. The Lufthansa "assisting agent" in the Frankfurt terminal was less than helpful and laughed when we told her where our connecting gate was. Not only did she laugh but she did not offer any assistance to get us to the gate on time. Prior to our trip - I called Lufthansa and voiced my concern that a 45 minute layover for an international flight was not a lot of time for us to make a connecting flight. The agent I spoke with said that legally - 45 minutes was a standard lay over for Lufthansa and she did not offer me any alternatives. This was not a pleasant experience with Lufthansa and I doubt we will fly with you again."
Pros: "It was a relatively short flight. Boarding went well and efficiently. Flight crew was attentive."
Pros: "Friendly, professional crew!"
Pros: "Crew inside the plane was lovely."
Cons: "The crew woman that assist us in Barcelona Airport counters for the check-in was really rude asking very personal question that I still don't understand why and questioning our passports without any reason. My partner and I felt very uncomfortable and that was a totally unnecessary situation. After that everything was totally great during the flight."
Pros: "It was definitely on time, service is good and it was a very nice flight."
Pros: "Courteous crew. Nice aircraft."
Cons: "My bag is approved carry-on size, and I travel weekly with it. The gate agent forced to check it which was unnecessary and unreasonable."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "But leg room."
Cons: "Too hot"
Cons: "Umm. It was cancelled due to union workers striking. It was great to spend our last day in Barcelona stressing over whether we could get back home."
Pros: "fast and friendly checkin, fast boarding, easy transmit"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew, smooth transfer between flights, comfortable adjustable headrest, easy to request special meal online before flight."
Cons: "Movies available weren't to my taste, which isn't of great importance anyway."
Cons: "Seating is extremely cramped"
Pros: "I do like the clean aircraft, and pretty precise service. Also it was on time , for comfort the pillow and the blanket was nice . Some airlines doesn’t give anything anymore! Which is awful."
Cons: "Just a small thing the lady who was serving and picking up the used cups said I have to finish the juice and after she can take it away. But I couldn’t finish because it was too sweet and I didn’t like the juice. So I had to get up and bring the cup to the back. That wasn’t nice. Also they at but flexible about giving choices. Only one kind of sandwich they had but I think there was one other kid also."
Cons: "The service with an awful crew !!! Just plain spiteful and arogant even if we flew in Business class"
Pros: "One crew member in the OTP-VIE flight that was great in service ."
Cons: "The delaying of both flights . The crew service on the VIE-NICE flight was awful ."
Pros: "Why the 3 hours delay?"
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "Good flight , bad flight delay and luggage."
Cons: "To be on time"
Cons: "Not a lot of legroom in my Premium Economy seat (10C). Seat itself just OK, the high price isn't justified. This flight is usually about one hour late and it was."
Pros: "For short flight the seats are ok with space for the legs"
Cons: "The flight was 30 minutes delayed"
Pros: "We could walk around as needed. No restrictions. Free wine with meals!"
Cons: "Staff not friendly or offering of assistance."
Cons: "My flight was canceled and I received no communication from Austrian Airlines. There was no staff at ticketing counter. The contact number that O’Hare had was a disconnected Verizon number, which was the same number listed on their website. I had to call the international number where I was told I was rebooked on United with 2 layovers instead of one. I also lost my business class upgrade and was told there was nothing they could do about it."
Cons: "There was a mix up about my reservation/ticket. Was stuck at the ticket desk for 45 min"
Pros: "I get Airpoints with the flight, crew were lovely."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, so a few delays (as they were asking if anyone would layover to release a seat) and they were being very strict on the one bag per traveller, but that’s fair enough considering it was busy."
Cons: "Booked a ticket with luggage and got email saying I am at economy class. When got to check in told me I have economy light and I had to pay again for luggage. Dissaster. Contacted priceline- did not care."
Cons: "My parents were traveling, they dont speak english and I verified with Austrian airlines that they would be assisted at the gates and that they had the correct visas for each airport they had a layover in. I was assured there would be no problems. Upon boarding they were not able to get on their flight. I have never had so many communication issues and frustrations in the middle of the night with an airline. disappointed."
Pros: "The Swiss Air staff provided water and nice sandwiches for us while we stood in line for hours and put us up in a very nice hotel for the night."
Cons: "My first flight with Austrain Airlines was 2 hours late in leaving, partly because they mixed our baggage up and had to have each of us leave the airplane to identify our baggage before getting back on again. Because of this, I missed my connecting flight in Zurich. Apparently hundreds of other passengers were in a similar situation, because I spent the next 6.5 hours standing in line to getting my new itinerary and hotel vouchers."
Pros: "Very easy and smooth flight. We landed 25 min earlier. Austrian Airlines are my favorite."
Pros: "Crew was nice enough, entertainment was ok. Food was ok. The plane was old and a little dirty."
Cons: "Boarding was incredibly chaotic, seats were old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "nothing I can think of"
Pros: "Flight schedule, boarding management"
Cons: "No WI-FI service during my return flight, limited options for tv news programs."
Cons: "the entertainment was broken, they didn't offer WIFI. the crew was very rude and crabby."
Pros: "A bit more leg and knee room."
Cons: "The food was dreadful. We flew Austrian last month and the food was good. We try to stay hydrated on the flights and when I asked for water at the back of the plane, I was kindly given the water and another attendant grabbed the curtain and closed it making it plain I was not to be there. (I've never had that happen on any other flight.)"
Pros: "Friendly staff, efficient"
Cons: "I didn’t understand that we got no baggage allowance with our tickets. When I looked on the website it appeared that star alliance members got the usual free luggage. Apparently it was a “lit” fare & we didn’t. It would have been worth it to get the next class of fare"
Pros: "Flight attendants were extremely friendly and considerate of passenger needs. In flight Wi-Fi is free in economy. Good leg space between the rows. Overall it's rare to find such good service now a days."
Pros: "Short flight, no major issues."
Cons: "Thechnical problems with the plane.One hour we were sitting in the plane and waiting departure"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing seating for a 12 hour flight was not comfortable."
Pros: "Flight Attendants super friendly as well as ground staff in Salzburg."
Cons: "Seats a little tight."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and kind and evetything was on time. The food is tasty."
Cons: "No entertainment at all."
Pros: "The direct flight' and the comfortable seat"
Pros: "Snacks in board included in the price. Super nice crew team. Unlike British airways where prices are higher, on longer flights there is no free refreshments and crew staff were unpleasant."
Cons: "Very small and old plane. Uncomfortable seats. Hand luggage bigger than small backpack not permitted on the board."
Cons: "The aircraft was very old and smelled badly. The toillets didn't work properly and were dirty."
Pros: "Leg room, kind staff in the airplane"
Cons: "Staff at service desk -unprofessionalism, never on time. Charged 3 times for infant ticket because of computer errors but lack of human factor explaining why, just completely horrible explanations."
Pros: "got to my destination on time."
Cons: "uncomfortable chairs. zero entertainment for a non EU flight (over 3 hours), missed the meal, nothing was offered...."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight."
Cons: "Boarding area cramped, all classes and rows boarded at same time."
Pros: "Pillows were great, blankets clean and comfy, food was even good, staff was extremely helpful and polite.."
Cons: "nothing, it was a great flight from beginning to end"
Cons: "Behavior of AA"
Pros: "Fastboarding, left on time. Cleaner aircraft, too small for carry on. Carry on promised at staircase, delivered at luggage claim."
Pros: "Everything seemed all right"
Pros: "best blanket in any business class. should be sold on line."
Pros: "The entire experience was a joy. I was upgraded to business class and the difference was noticeable. I was comfortable and suffered no ill effects after. Much different that my trip home."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like"
Pros: "I liked the extended leg room in front row of economy class."
Cons: "A couple of the flight attendants were rude to people on the jet. They seemed agitated and annoyed."
Cons: "Less than 24 hours notice."
Pros: "I was offered to change my flight for 400 Euros, and did so. Had the offer been for less money, I would not have. I was told that the chance of my losing the new seat was minimal, as the computer was very overbooked and rarely wrong. I was then told at the gate that I had to wait there, and did so, despite having already checked into a lounge (for a fee), because I needed to print a bank bill (my reason for going to Moscow from Vienna, not directly home from Vienna to New York, is to pay a fee into an account at the bank). So I waited, and in the meantime contacted my friend in Moscow to tell him I'd be arriving 10 hours later than planned. Then at the very last minute that 2 people who had booked for the flight had not appeared, and that I had to board it. Hugely frustrating on account of the endless assurances made."
Cons: "you pay austrian but flights are operated by diff. companies regularly delayed or cancelled flights eg. last one - 3hours delay no info provided no info ahead any question?"
Pros: "Ground crew was very helpful. Nothing remarkable about the flight"
Cons: "Flight was late. This made the connection in Vienna very stressful"
Pros: "Food, courtesy of flight attendants."
Cons: "Old plane. Very little space in chairs."
Pros: "Airplane was clean. We traveled safe."
Cons: "They ran out of food options by the time they got to us. The arm rest didn't work. It was broken. No solutions were found to resolve the problem."
Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."
Cons: "Free wifi"
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Cons: "Staff rude and short"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed in Bejing, than we loosed the booked flight of KLM. When we arrived in Amsterdam, we get the recheked in flight."
Cons: "Delays, took my hand luggage into the hold,"
Pros: "Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Seats not great for such a long flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."
Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"
Cons: "Larger meals."
Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. I travel KLM often and always enjoy the flights."
Cons: "There were several flight delays and gates were changes a few times."
Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"
Cons: "Very slow service at checkin, was not even available when I arrived at the airport"
Pros: "The crew was efficient. Flight left on time. Food and wine served."
Cons: "No entertainment."
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: "Good flight, arriving well on time."
Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"
Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Pros: "Friendly in-flight personell"
Cons: "Approx. 1 hour delay, which was not the airline's fault (construction on runways)"
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board."
Pros: ".Very much on time with pleasant service."
Cons: "Can nit find much fault fir a short run!"
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Pros: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"
Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
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: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful. Entertainment had plenty of choices."
Cons: "The seats were very hard. It was very uncomfortable sitting that long I’m those seats"
Cons: "Seat was terribl, space tiny, no legroom no air movement, hot the entire trip,"
Cons: "at least offered free water."
Pros: "Made it"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "The food especially the second meal or snack."
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable."
Pros: "Nothing, could not even board due to confusion over flights."
Cons: "SAS couldn’t even help us when our flight was cancelled."
Pros: "New, clean airplane with a friendly and professional crew. It was not as uncomfortable as some of the other airlines I've used, though eight hours in economy is still too much. I chose it in part because of the connection through Copenhagen, which I recommend for an overnight stay. Great city."
Cons: "The chicken something or other on one of the flights was truly disgusting, but the rest of the economy food service was okay."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "Free food for everyone since it was delayed"
Cons: "Seat was super narrow."
Cons: ""sporty" landing in Washington :)"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. The flight was smooth. It was a short flight (1.5 hours) so there was no food, but coffee, tea, water and juice was served."
Cons: "Late departure. No roof during queuing for loading and rain..."
Pros: "Check in at the airport gate was handled professionally."
Cons: "Bought our seats 2 months in advance. One day before flight, saw our assigned seats were changed, someone had our original seats 31G/H, and we were put in 48C/D. Could not get any assistance to correct the situation until we were at the gate and by that time no comparable seats were available. Also, my husband spilled his drink; one of the attendants said he was too busy to help with cleanup. Fortunately, another attendant came over after my husband went to the galley to again ask for assistance."
Pros: "The 2 gate agents were very helpful and nice, as well as the on-board flight attendants, all were very professional and did a good job for the most part."
Cons: "a few little things, nothing worth mentioning..."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "No entertainment, only coffee and tea served."
Pros: "Timely & helpful"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Horrible. They claim "free wifi" but it didn't work. 8.5 hour flight without wifi is ridiculous."
Pros: "The service is nice, people are friendly, and good environment at airport!"
Cons: "The flight delayed too long...I was waiting total 8hrs in Copenhagen Airport! The first time I took SAS."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the flight from Newark to Copenhagen was on new aircraft A340-300 I believe, it was very nice and comfortable even in coach as long as you have a compact body."
Cons: "That my Silver Star Alliance status got me nothing with SAS, no early boarding, no ability to select a seat until 24 hours before without paying an extra cost, if you wanted a beer you had to pay, this is a no frills airline now, pay as you go."
Pros: "Only that it was the shorter part of the trip."
Cons: "Seat was tight and did not recline at all. Back was killing me. Flight attendants came across as rude the way they spoke to the people. No entertainment at all. Not even water was offered."
Cons: "They should really let you know ahead of time that certain seats (like the ones in front of the emergency exit--not at the emergency exit) dont recline. The passenger in front of me reclined her chair all the way back and seeing as I couldnt recline my seat I had very little space and found the three hour flight extremely unpleasant."
Cons: "I was unable to check in over the mobile app nor online. Had to do everything at the ticket desk in both the US and overseas. Made me feel as though I didn't have a reservation in the system."
Cons: "Older plane with no entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly friendly"
Cons: "I would have appreciated a vegetarian option for the meal."
Cons: "As above."
Pros: "It was a clean plane and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Crew wasn't nice unless you were Scandinavian. I asked questions about going into Stockholm for our long layover. How easy it was, etc. they were less than helpful. My daughter and I figured it out ourselves. Won't fly them on next trip. Air France or BA r better"
Pros: "I booked through you and priceline. I chose the airfare that included the provision for one paid check through bag. was VERY careful to make sure I paid for this extra bag. When I got to the airport SAS said I had not paid for a ticket that included one checked through bag. I am very upset with this. Solution I will NEVER book through Kayak or priceline again..."
Cons: "My first flight was canceled. I'm still in Barcelona."
Cons: "In toilets there was no paper"
Pros: "passed out i-pads loaded with movies, magazines and music food was good"
Cons: "very small plane for trans-atlantic flight (17 rows) only one free soda, then they charge you"
Cons: "I understood I could check one bag. Nope. Checking one bag cost me $67. So much for saving money."
Pros: "Fast bording. All good, no problems."
Cons: "Online check-in with just 24h before the flight. Can be a problem if you are travelling"
Pros: "It was a pleasant flight with friendly service. Boarding was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Food choices and limited entertainment. I know that SAS need to remain competitive, but strict limits in drinks seems a bit cheap."
Pros: "Traveled business class after winning the upgrade bid. Really felt like there was little room for improvement. The physical set up, the service, the entertainment were all delightful. The privacy, the horizontal sleep option on a 9 hour flight were just special."
Cons: "Felt the food choices needed an upgrade. Fresh is not the only important ingredient."
Pros: "Was able to selct my seat"
Cons: "Had to pay €70 to check in luggage - most expensive ive ever seen! No beverages other than coffee and tea abailable, water could be appreciated"
Pros: "The flight was on time The lounge (SAS) in Copenhagen, but that had nothing to do with the flight"
Cons: "Rather indifferent organization in Copenhagen at the gate, and rather rushed service (granted it was only an hour+ flight from Kastrup to Arlanda), I was not even asked for water or tea/coffe when the cart zipped by, maybe because I did not speak Swedish/Danish"
Cons: "Entertainment systems were not working for many of us."
Cons: "Unfortunately we had to postpone our trip due to a family crisis. I called in an attempt to receive a voucher or some credit. I was advised that a change was possible, but that with penalties and taxes, it would amount to MORE than the price of the ticket. Hell of a way to run a railroad!....speaking of railroads, that gives me an idea for when we reschedule!!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, food was amazing. SAS plus is the way to go. Bigger seats, very comfortable for a ten hour flight."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "No food option, Drinks are not free(international flight), no toilet paper"
Pros: "Plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Seated by toilet which Ididn't realize"
Pros: "The boarding ease, the crew, the piloting!"
Cons: "Would love the onboard tv that shows the flight in progress and/or some onboard music options."
Cons: "I lost my luggage!!!"
Pros: "The seats were comfy"
Cons: "They don't even offer water as a free beverage, only coffee or tea. And, not even a packet of pretzels on a three-hour flight. I didn't miss the entertainment much, but on a three-hour flight, it's a nice option."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the flight left and landed on time. The crew members were very pleasant. The comfort of the aircraft is mediocre, but that is all across the industry."
Cons: "This flight was ~3.5 hours and there was no 'free' food; it was all for purchase. SAS can learn from their competitors and realize that flights over 2 hours are different than short haul ones."
Pros: "Was upgraded to business class"
Pros: "Flight was perfect, but..."
Cons: "I prefer to fly with SAS or Staralliance, so I was happy to by this ticket, but when booked it never said it didn´t include luggage. I was then billed at the airport and can exspect the same leaving Nice. I will make a claim because I consider this a fraud. You could at least have mentioned this on the booking before payment, so I could have made my booking elsewhere."
Cons: "I missed my flight due to car troubles and has been very difficult in trying to get a refund for my flight. SAS was very unhelpful at the airport I had to go to Delta and purchase and entirely new flight!"
