Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas.

Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"

Cons: "Extremely overweight passenger next to me. It was awful, her body was in contact with me the entire flight. The most uncomfortable, hot, smelly, awkward flight Ive ever experienced. Its time you charge for 2 seats for people that are the size of 2 people. Not fair to other passengers to have to be so inconvenienced and extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Started my Movie on the Ground before takeoff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there was absolutely no announcement with everyone lined up at the scheduled departure time. Communication on the delay was non existent. There was one announcement made 10minutes after boarding was suppose to commence to say the boarding will be delayed. No details as to why, approximate time."

Cons: "I didn't prefer the premium economy section. Uncomfortable. I'd rather pay the fare for a cheaper economy seat, that is equally uncomfortable. It's terrible to start charging people for small, petty things like choosing one's seat."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very kind and helpful. I was very tired and was feeling a little under the weather. She checked in with me frequently throughout the flight to make sure I was well, brought me hot water to sip on, and just made sure I was as comfortable as possible. My regret is that I didn’t catch her name."
Pros: "Arrival in time"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Smooth, uneventful travel all was well."
Pros: "Sevices and food are good"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was very attentive. Loved Cathay Pacific’s signature non alcoholic drink”Ocean Breeze”."
Cons: "The food was really not at the level you would expect. There was only a pork and a fish option. The fish was fishy and the dessert was gelatin cake thing that did not appease my dessert craving."
Pros: "Great customer service."
Pros: "Adequate leg room, which is very important in a long haul flight. Punctual."
Cons: "We had lunch and then breakfast, skipping dinner. Considering we were in the place for 14+ hours, dinner instead of either breakfast or lunch would have been good."

Cons: "Still hate the long flight"
Pros: "Great staff and food"
Cons: "Flight arrived from SFO 15 min late, and airline cancelled numerous connecting flights to various cities, including mine to Hanoi from Hong Kong. Offered to rebook 10hr later with 40 HK food credit. Happened to my uncle and cousins 1 month earlier on exact same legs. Would not recommend any layover with this airline in hong Kong for less than an hour. Numerous phone calls from me to sort this out, which resulted on another carrier to Hanoi."
Pros: "Just great all round"
Pros: "All was good until missed connection"
Cons: "Missed connection due to late arrival. CP switched us to AC. 7 hour layover"
Pros: "Fast and on time"
Pros: "As usual, the Cathay Pacific staff were awesome and very professional. Never hesitated to serve the passengers with infants/kids and elderly people. My overall experience was great!! Thank you to all staff!!"
Pros: "The crew were very polite, efficient and attentive."
Cons: "On the first leg of our journey the seats were very difficult to adjust. We required the help of the attendants."
Cons: "old plane"
Cons: "Gate staff was not patient and friendly. No advanced notification before flight cancellation. Poor communication after flight cancellation. No instructions for remediation for flight cancellation only tell customer to get checked in luggage bag and go home. No initiative to handle the incident. We waited for 2 hours at the counter for explanation and information for re-arrangement for the flight. Really disappointed with this flight."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and accommodating. The food served on this particular flight was outstanding"
Cons: "Typically cramped seats (I know its what I paid for, but still)"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Seat is hard to adjust."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "The crew was uninformed and unobservant to actual conditions in the cabin. They kept the air conditioning on and no one was available to address the situation. People started to take their winter coats out of the overhead bins and sit in their seats with coats on. They spent a significant amount of time repeatedly requesting that the window shades be moved up or down. Frankly, if I buy a window seat I should have the option to look out the window if I'm not disturbing my neighbors."
Pros: "GOOD SERVICE & FOOD"
Cons: "Seat back did not adjust well. Luggage off loaded by someone in Destination and was difficult to find"
Pros: "מסך וסרטים ברמה טובה, המטוס עצמו חדש ובאיכות טובה. מרחק קטן בין הכיסאות מרגישים ברכיים בגב."
Cons: "היינו המומים - רגע לפני העלייה למטוס, בשרוול עצמו, לקחו את הנוסעים הצידה ועשו להם בדיקה גופנית ידנית. הכוונה מישושים מלאים בכל חלקי הדוף האינטימיים, ולפני שאר הנוסעים. החברה שלי היתה בשוק. הרי עברנו שיקוף בכניסה לטרמינל. ואין לי מושג אם זה בגלל שאנו ישראליים, אבל זה היה וולגרי ופולשני. הימנעו מטיסה עם החברה הזו."
Pros: "The entertainment is in regards to the movie choices that I had. I wish my screen was a little bigger."
Cons: "My flight from Los Angeles to Hong Kong was cancelled due to a problem with the plane. I stood in line for 2 and a half hours at the airport only to have them tell me this. There was not visible sense of urgency on part of the staff at Cathay Pacific and they did not seem to have a contingency plan to deal with such a situation. I especially felt sorry for some of the elderly people who were also in line all that time with noting to drink and no place to sit."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Crew did their job pleasantly ."
Cons: "Food was very ordinary, not up to what I expect in business class."
Pros: "More leg room, incline on seats, blanket, pillow."
Cons: "All the adverts on Premium Economy with Cathay Pacific are inaccurate. It is NOT your secluded compartment. The curtain to economy is ALWAYS kept open...NO privacy. Food is EXACTLY SAME as economy. In LAX had to REMIND them that Premium Economy has priority boarding. There is no champagne on arrival at your seat...you have to ASK for it. Crew is always HURRIED. When you ask for a beverage or a snack, hostess and stewards have ATTITUDE. it's like they are doing a big FAVOR. Really??? we spent lots of EXTRA MONEY to be in this class. Restroom was difficult to access. Overall MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT"
Pros: "Able to sleep. Arrived safely."
Cons: "I accidentally sat in the wrong seat and had settled in comfortably, when a crew member pointed it out, I quickly got up and made my way to my seat. However someone was sitting there. The crew member told me that since the person had settled in I'd have to sit in another seat and pointed to yet another seat. Needless to say I was very confused and more than a little ticked with the inconsistent behaviour. Things didn't get any better when they defended their approach instead of simply acknowledging the problem."
Cons: "Seats are terrible"
Cons: "Our laugage is delay, service is worse than we never see."
Pros: "Great movie choices"
Cons: "Seat spacing was horrible"
Cons: "When we booked we asked for a child's meal and we advised of allergies. However I don't see why we would have to ask as we booked a child's seat and you have to provide the age which she is 4. When onboard from SYD/HKG and HKG/LONDON, NO meal was available for our child except for what everyone else was eating. She is anaphylaxis to shellfish, she was given shrimp!!!!! I am sure if she was given a child's meal she would not have got this. We were then told we have to advise the airline 12 hours before we fly that we want a child's meal. I am sorry but when travelling we should not have to do this and nor have we ever had to do it on any other airline. Poor poor poor!!!!"
Pros: "The service and quality are absolutely OK, the airline is awesome!"
Pros: "Very nice crew and stuff , clean plane, clean facilities. Everything is superb."
Pros: "The entertainment offering is excellent and the flight schedule into Sapporo is ideal."
Cons: "Staff are not as friendly and knowledgable as other airlines I have flown in Asia. Staff need to take control of the plane and have people prepare for take off a lot quicker than they do. I only experience this with Cathay and not other Asian airlines."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific has the most attentive flight attendants of any airline on the planet. We had a tight connection in Hong Kong. They accommodated us, by having us move up to Business Class just before landing so that we could get off the plane first. We made our connection without any problem."
Cons: "The food was simple and not enough for Cathay Pacific standard"
Pros: "Super easy to book, loved the notifications of baggage claim number upon exiting the flight. Great itinerary too."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and helpful."
Cons: "Disappointed that there was no inflight entertainment at all."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific is an amazing airline with the best economy service and best in-flight entertainment I've ever encountered. They really make you feel comfortable on lengthy trans-Pacific flights, and their hub in Hong Kong is spectacular."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable enough though they felt dated and had less space between the seats thank Air New Zealand."
Cons: "The service was quite frankly bad. We felt as if we were in a forgotten zone between two curtains sandwiched between business and economy. There was no dedicated staff for premium economy and this may have been part of the problem. There were only six passengers in Premium economy yet at meal time our choice wasn't available. We were offered meals from economy as an option. Getting any service meant having to use the call button because the staff rarely popped in to see if we needed anything. I've never used the call button so often in one flight. Friendliness came across as a forced response to our queries and at times even that wasn't masked so well. Drinks were served in plastic cups instead of real glass (like Air NZ) and filled nearly to the top...practically a tumbler of wine. Not very classy. We were forced to use the economy toilets instead of the business ones (like Air NZ). Overall we felt that Premium Economy on Cathay was economy with a wider seat with the exception that the services was worse than our economy trips with Cathay. This was a huge disappointment especially when compared with the first leg of our trip with Air NZ which was outstanding. We are not keen to fly Cathay again but unfortunately we'll have to on the way home."

Cons: "The food is the worst there is"
Pros: "I enjoyed the 7 lay over. Took a train to the city (12 minutes ), walked around and shopped, ate and tracked back with the train . A nice stop over"
Pros: "Liked nothing. Stewards were no help. Seating was extremely tight. I am disabled and use a small travel scooter. They removed the batteries even though they are not lithium or spillable. I called months in advance with all specifications and still they were clueless. We will never fly Swiss again. I am disabled and received no help. They removed the batteries of my scooter and we had to carry them on our lap. I had to tell them to put the batteries back in the scooter. They failed in every facet."
Pros: "TV screens and movies. Food was great."
Pros: "I slept with the jazz music...didn't hear a baby that was crying the whole flight..."
Pros: "Flights attendant proficinal , food was great , first time experience ice cream on airplane served. Seats are comfy and wide , much space between seats compare with other airlines."
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!!!!!"
Pros: "Good breakfast"
Cons: "Bad seat, just an economy seat"
Pros: "After almost completely adapting to the spartan amenities of US domestic airlines, my recent SWISS flight had a too-good-to-be-true quality that rendered my travel companion and I giddy with delight. My dinner (one of three food services) consisted of chicken, potatoes, steamed broccoli, salad, a dinner roll with butter, gruyere, and a strawberry tart... included cream and sugar signaled an inevitable coffee service. This was accompanied by complimentary wine and sparkling water, and heavy-weight stainless cutlery. The seat reclination was good, and the in-flight entertainment was a cut above. Coming off many Frontier flights with pay-for-beverage service, no leg-room, and un-reclining seats, it was about as good as coach can get. I'm actually looking at SWISS routes first before I plan my next vacation."
Cons: "I booked two tickets but could not pick seats for my partner. We ended up in bad seats next to the bathroom."
Pros: "Short flight and they handed out chocolate"
Cons: "They announced that carry-on suitcases must be checked to accommodate a much smaller plane This only applied to those stupid enough (us) to comply"

Pros: "The crew did all they can \The Swiss Airlines lounge was superb"
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable The crew insisted I can't bring on a 22" Carry-on"

Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Cons: "I ordered in advance 4 seats for my family, paid 100$ to SWISS 19/10/16.Boarding crew refused to give us the seats sold to us.The family was divided into 3 and 1.Only after my strong refusal, the seats were were granted.During the dispute about the provision of already purchased seats, SWISS crew member threatened to call the police. We entered the plane last.Our seats not were ready and we were forced to do it all alone.Rudeness and unprofessionalism of SWISS crew.The end of the vacation was spoiled. For what I paid to SWISS 100$ in advance(10 monthes)? I believe, if SWISS could not provide the paid service as expected, SWISS must return the money(100$) and apologize. Nobody apologized in Zurich, threatened to invite the police. Bad crew, bad service."
Cons: "Because there was no way for us to check in early or online and they did not send us an email directing us to do so, they put us on standby even though the flights were paid for months before. We couldn't sit together--they wouldn't even try, they let the computer do it randomly as we boarded. They put my son through ridiculous strip search security measures, and when my passport fell into to the steel bullet of a garbage can, they didn't help and my son and I figure out how to go through it to get my passport. They could not have been more unhelpful. Plus the food was terrible, and delays both in taking off and getting to the gate. I will NEVER fly Swiss Air again."
Pros: "Excellent service, comfortable, clean, on time."
Pros: "crew very nice and helpful. great service. food was very good and good portions. very nice entertainment system."
Cons: "unable to choose seat without paying extra."
Cons: "in NY they would not give me a seat/ boarding pass for this flight - they said i had to get one only in zurich. by the time they gave me one in zurich - it was a middle seat and there were no other seats available. i was totally squished in between 2 men [ i am a female] and the seats were sooo small and there was absolutely no room. i was totally uncomfortable and had to sit like this for 4 hours... i did not like this AT ALL"

Pros: "Once boarded we took off pretty quickly, crew were extremely nice, food was great"
Cons: "The boarding process was messy, couldn't tell economy from business lines, no entertainment at all."
Cons: "When I booked the flight I thought it was El Al so I did not order kosher food (as all El Al food is kosher). I only found out later that it was Swiss Air and I was unable to get a kosher meal."
Pros: "Was all great as with other legs...will fly again"
Cons: "Seats seemed smaller but do need more entertainment options."
Pros: "At list 2 attendants were extremely not polite . Air condition was turned on 2 minutes before landing . To collect food plates from passengers took more then 2 hours . When passengers asked attendants, to evaluate when it going to happen the answer was very rude ״ you should fly business in case you want it faster " . It was a night flight and it took 3 hours to turn off the lights . One of the girls attendants told me that I have too many hand handbags with me , only 1 piece allowed . I was with 3 pieces but we were 3 persons my wife and my Childe . I was trying to explain her, but she was unable to listen . It is not Swiss I know , I like to flight Swiss , but this flight was extremely disappointing .It was many confusions with other passengers as well. wrong meals , wrong seats , no air condition, ... the flight was a nightmare"
Cons: "In this flight nothing , one of the worst I have ever had ."

Cons: "Food wasn't so good, I ordered a Vegan meal and got the Vegetarian one"
Pros: "EVERYTHING'S Good to come back home"
Pros: "The flights were Just as schedule, the arrival time was even earlier than planned. The crew is always available and tries to make the flight as comfortable as it can be. The food is brilliant in comparison to other airlines. To sum up, always a good choice. * this is my 8th flight with Swiss."

Pros: "Great staff and food"
Cons: "Comfort was not great and no entertainment options whatsoever"
Pros: "Crew did their best to make us happy."
Cons: "I felt duped by Lufthansa by the so called business class, where my legs barely fit, there was no entertainment, and there was no real difference at all from economy except for not having a person in the middle seat. It was equivalent to economy plus at best, but charged at business rate."
Pros: "Same crew. Really nice flight smooth and professional"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled."
Pros: "Crew was ok. Had to manage difficult passengers."
Cons: "No entertainment. Average food. Little space for legs."
Cons: "Boarding from terminal f sucks"

Pros: "Crew was nice. Lufthansa crew is usually good, so no complaints."
Cons: "Even the crew said that the plane was too crowded, and that they should have used a larger plane for such a full flight.There was no entertainment on the plane, unless you provided your own device. My flight from Chicago to Frankfurt was on a very large plane so I have no complaints, but, the plane chosen from Frankfurt to Tel Aviv was much smaller, and packed to the gills, with passengers, and luggage, and crew. The crew themselves remarked that the type of plane used for this flight was inappropriate."
Cons: "We had to fly to mun because it was delay from florence"
Cons: "LH flight from Seattle was late, and I barely made it to the LH connecting flight to TA. Landed in Tel Aviv, but my one bag didn't arrive with me. Looked for the Lufthansa desk, but there is no such thing. They have farmed out the task of dealing with lost luggage and masses of confused to irate people to another firm. There were approx 40 people trying to get some information from 4 ladies, one of whom was new. They were unable to deal with many reports at a time. How about take a number and we'll call you up in turn? Instead it was like a push and shove pressure cooker just to find out the status of said missing bag and make a report. I was dealt with last. At this time, I was exhausted and angry. The ladies were very good and very kind. They informed my ride of the delay, and told me that the lost bag would come on the next flight. They took me out of the area to get a drink and a bite to eat. We waited. It came. We drove to my destination a few hours away. Never have I had to deal with such a time consuming shambles to find out the bare minimum of information. I finished the trip and will never fly with Lufthansa again."
Cons: "No Entertainnment , no space , very small airplan"
Cons: "To Whom It May Concern, My name is Eliezer Korbman. I was a passenger on LH403 with service to Frankfurt, Germany. Upon reaching cruising altitude and prior to dinner service, a Lufthansa stewardess reached across my midsection, activated the reclining mechanism and forcefully returned my seat to its upright position - waking me up to eat. (You may conduct your own investigation, but there was no prior announcement.) I politely declined, but was later denied dinner and breakfast. To clarify, I was unable to eat or sleep. This is utterly disgusting service. I am incredibly disappointed in Lufthansa for the way that I was treated aboard LH403. Unless I can be persuaded otherwise, I will be taking my business elsewhere. Garbage service! Shame on you Lufthansa!"

Cons: "The plane was extremely small and uncomfortable. There were only two lavoratories for 60+ people, the other two being reserved only for the 10+ people in first class.

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!"

Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."

The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."

Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"

Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
