Pros: "Crew service is excellent!"
Cons: "The seat is really cramp and tight!"
Cons: "On long flights, the seats need to be more comfortable and there needs to be more entertainment options. Also was not sure why we could not book seats even though we booked tickets in October."
Pros: "Seat was broken would not lock in upright position. Seat entertainment screen was also malfunctioning in the on position."
Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing and so service oriented!"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "A bit warm"
Pros: "Economy premium was very comfortable. Best service I’ve had on an airplane since Pan American days."
Cons: "I didn’t like the boarding process one long line. However, it moved quickly and unlike American airlines there was plenty of overhead space. They let you check 2 bags free. Of course, it is an international flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, excellent entertainment system (although lack of movie choices this time around), crew is attentive as usual, and the food is not bad for airplane food. Smooth traveling."
Cons: "If anything, it was simply the lack of movie choices but I guess it wasn't a good year for movies."
Pros: "The extra inches were nice. Fairly comfortable seat. And the ice cream was a nice treat."
Cons: "I thought I would get a little more than a few extra inches in Economy Plus. Maybe an overnight packet (ear plugs, eye mask, toothbrush?) and/or a foot rest for the extra money, but it was literally only a few extra inches of space."
Pros: "Staff were friendly from check in to disembark. Food was quite good. Boarded on time and people were accomodating of one another in the entry and exit process."
Cons: "I was travelling with my twin 11 yr olds one of whom has limited sight. They normally only allow early boarding of young children, but we need extra time as I have 2 children to organise and my daughters sight dictates that i have to assist her. Other passengers were not impressed. I would like the airlines to take the initiative to have all children boarded early as if we board with everyone else, the aisles will be blocked as my children try to get organised."
Cons: "First, I did an online check-in and was able to secure a seat for the first leg of the flight, but was able to get any information on my second leg. So when I arrived at the Thai Airways counter to load in my bags I asked the Thai Airways representative about the missing information. His response was that he could not get into the ANA system and that I have to go to the ANA counter to ask for that information. Given that my layover in Narita was only about 45mins landing to going to the gate, I was not comfortable with not knowing if I would be on that flight or not. The Thai Airways representation at the boarding counter did help me a bit and got in touch with a guide in Narita to help me get my luggages and get to gate properly. I wanted to note that we did not arrive in Narita on time due to the high air traffic so the plane had to circle around for 15 mins. When we finally landed I had about 15 mins to get through the custom and ran to my gate. When I received my ticket I was shocked that I got a middle seat on a 13 hours flight! If I have known this earlier I would have paid for a better seat, but since I was not able to check-in online and didn't receive any info about this flight prior to boarding I was not allowed to change on this full flight. In addition, the plane ride was awful. The food was disgusting and the seat was very uncomfortable. The seat did not even recline back! I don't expect much from a short distance flight but for a 13 hour long flight, I at least expect the seat to be slightly better than sitting on a rock against a brick wall. All in all, this was a HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE I went through. The stress and the discomfort on the plane was an experience that no one should ever feel while traveling. It was an awful nightmare on an ANA flight. I would like a refund on this flight with no exceptions. Sincerely, Jessica Saesue"

Cons: "I did not like the delay of the plane which, instead of taking of at 10pm took off at 7h45 am."
Pros: "Didn't realize I'm flying united airlines. Nowhere on my itinerary was it mentioned. The whole time I thought I'm with ANA all the way"
Cons: "The flight itself was good but booking with bayaan, never again. I have used kayak many times but for the first time since I booked vayama changed me flight 6 times. They also could have mentioned my first 2 legs of my flight was with united. I tried to check in online thru ANA, couldn't go thru with many attempts until finally I called and the agent mentioned to check in thru united."

Pros: "The plane was new and the seats recline quite a bit. The movie selection was solid (though disorganized)."
Cons: "The food service was a plastic bag of goodies (bag of chips, water bottle, toblerone, kit kat, pastry) - what?! The turbulence announcement was made once in english and japanese by the auto-plane service followed by the crew announcing it again in both English and Japanese. The same was done with the duty free. The plane pressure also felt very strong and cause discomfort for the wife. The movie selection was solid (but badly organized) and the TV show selection wasn't terrible. It should all be better. Come on ANA! Contact me for recommendations."
Cons: "Sitting on the back rows , when I was served my food the lady said there was no more options I had to take what was left, meaning if I wanted the pasta I would Not get it because unfortunately I got a sit at the back of the airplane, but I paid the same amount of money for the ticket as the person sitting 20 rows in front of me It is outrageous"

Clean, neat, well maintained and on time performance.

Cons: "Toilets needs air freshener as so many passengers use them."
Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."
Pros: "Great service & very comfortable lie flat business class seat for this red eye flight."
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth."
Cons: "We were seated in the last row, and by the time the food came around, 2 of the 3 entree options were unavailable. We had to have fish or not get an entree at all."
Pros: "So many carriers have cut back on so many things, our flight on Qatar Airlines felt like a throwback to the days when flying was enjoyable. Everything about our flight was better than we have come to expect from most other airlines. To highlight one surprise - the in-flight meals were high quality."

Cons: "HOSPITAL LIKE FOOD GIVEN,"
Cons: "- Leg Space is challenge"
Cons: "The aircraft was changed and passengers were required to check in their hand luggage, yet remove their electronics from their hand carry. In my case I had several electronic items which I had to carry onto the aircraft and store awkwardly which created a major risk of my camera and laptop being damaged in the process. This is not the kind of service I expect from Qatar Airways, especially considering the exorbitant ticket prices."

Pros: "It was the first time using Qatar Airways and I'll continue doing so in the future."

Nice flight. Always love to fly with Emirates
Airplane A380-800 is too big, fully booked. Too many people everywhere, which made me nervous due to Covid-19 infection risks. But food was good, and toilets were fine.
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Food and service about drinks limited unfortunately"

Pros: "Crew was amazing and meals were perfect."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "My first flight the seat was towards the back and was smaller than others."
Pros: "A380s are good aircraft. Emirates entertainment is second to none ."
Cons: "I'm the first leg 777 aircraft sat towards the back and my window seat was smaller than most seats. I had 1 hour 25 minutes connection in Dubai . But it was a VERY. Long walk from C3 to B14 . By the time for of the plane and reached my connecting gate t8gey were already boarding . Dubai is too big"

Pros: "Emirates always is outstanding service and comfort even for a Economic ticket, but...."
Cons: "This time I had problems, I was in the seat 71 of A380 and I realized it is the worst seat to receive boarding service, I always was the last to receive food, so the fish option was “sold out” ... bad experience"
Pros: "Friendly staff at boarding and on flight. Very attentive."
Cons: "Food was not as nice as other airlines and my 11 yo daughter was only provided normal adult meal. For full service airline actually went thirsty - constant water should be a given."
Cons: "Far too low temperature settings"
Pros: "I definitely love Emirates' use of the A380 as it is more spacious and therefore offers a more comfortable ride. It also helps that their cabin crew were accommodating and the services offered onboard were good."

Pros: "Comfortable seat, even in economy class. Very quiet engine noise. Extensive in-flight entertainment. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Boarding experience was cumbersome and overly complicated. After going through the whole security screening process to enter the departures area (I boarded in Singapore), the whole security process is performed again to get to the gate. Why do I and my carry-on luggage need to be checked twice? Once at the gate, all passengers are herded like sheep into an area that has insufficient seats for the number of passengers, so many are left to stand or sit on the floor. If the airline wants to use a plane that carries 500+ passengers, then use a gate that can accommodate that number."
Pros: "Nice airport"
Cons: "It took Emirates a while to let passengers out. 1 hr layover is just barely in enough, expect to run or fast walk to connecting flights. Not organize when boarding aircraft."
Pros: "The food and service. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "Should watch on how many beer/champagne the steward serving to the customer as we had an old man who is super drunk sitting beside us and keep asking for more. Should also include toothbrush for our overnight flight as we reached Melbourne in the morning."
Pros: "The shops were great, but not enough time to get to them due to multiple security checks.Emirates delayed takeoff by over 30 minutes to accommodate their passengers."
Cons: "Wait time, due to multiple security checks, the staff that were performing them were inconsistent. KWI could do better."
Pros: "In flight meals were quite good. In fact, I would order the smoked chicken salad if I were in a restaurant. Service by cabin crew was excellent as well. Courteous, friendly and knowledgeable$o."
Cons: "In flight entertainment could have more recent movies."
Cons: "Seat a little uncomfortable even with mattress. Food not great."
Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Insufficient vegan option"
Cons: "Cannot choose seats without paying a fee which is ridiculous. There is no way to get a window seat on the plane. I have never travelling on a non window seat in my 20 years of flying until this time."
Pros: "The plane were newer. Larger monitor."
Cons: "THe Entertainment system did not work. which meant no tv, info or seat adjustment. this was in First Class. horrible"

Cons: "The crew was very impolite."
Pros: "Wow totally worth it. I'm now spoiled by how fantastic this airline is. Entertainment, service, food, and comfort. If emirates is flying to my destination I will for sure use them."
Pros: "Everything is wonderful"
Cons: "Tight Economy Class seats"
Cons: "Baggage took almost 2 hours to get out at return destination"
Cons: "No information re cancelled flight, board at Dubai indicated flight delayed with no time or boarding gate. Over 300 people at Emirates / Qantas customer service desk and 2 operators. Only found out that the flight may be cancelled from an email from kayak. Eventually got on a flight 6 and a half hours later. When leaving the board still said ek5101 delayed. I am sure if left up to Emirates / Qantas we would still be sitting at Dubai looking at the board."
Pros: "The media system was great. I enjoyed the food and the crew was very nice."
Pros: "We love Emirates. The previous flights and crew have been amazing. Most likely due to the plane only being half full. However the service, food, comfort and entertainment are the best I have ever experienced. The staff when able are more then helpful. They are friendly and engaging. The baggage allowance is amazing as well."
Pros: "The various American airlines have SO far to go to compare with Emirates (and other non-US airlines). One gets treated coldly and with irritation or disdain on American carriers commonly, while Emirates service staff are all professional, confident, pleasant and always have time to help you, handle small requests, or provide you that little extra. They understand service, and provide it as between equal professionals. Service staff in the US seem to think actually providing good service is demeaning, so they waste everyone's time and happiness making sure you know that you're no better than them. It's pathetic and immature. Emirates utterly rocks. And the price was better than all the US airlines. What's not to like?"
Pros: "Very attentive, patient, helpful and friendly on-board crew Food was good In-flight entertainment options"
Cons: "understaffed counter at the gate. People waited in line for as long as 45 minutes for passport check Audio quality of airline provided headsets was poor. Some would not work. Others did not play audio on both left and right sides"

Pros: "Crew ignored my existence just because I sat on the window seat, plus I'm an asian, so I'm not sure which of the reason makes her to ignore me for serving my food. Luckily the guy passenger that sit beside me helped me to inform and made sure that she served the food to me."
Cons: "YEA, PLEASE TRAIN YOUR STAFF TO TREAT ALL PASSENGERS EQUALLY, NOT ONLY JUST TO CAUCASIAN, OTHER RACE AND ETHNIC ALSO DESERVE EQUALLY RESPECT AND TREATMENT. THANKS. SERVICE IS GOOD BUT ATTITUDE OF STAFFS ARE JUST MEH."

Pros: "good flight didn’t have any problems"
Pros: "The gate agents, crew, and food."
Cons: "Entertainment monitor kept stopping, then going, fast forward, then fast reverse. Watched a 1 hour 10 minute movie that took 2 hours 40 minutes to view. I am over 200 cm in height, the passenger in front of me was 163 cm with seat all the way back while sitting on the edge of her seat playing games. The monitor I was watching was about 14 cm from my face. I never put my seat back, but I sure as hell will now. This flight was over seven hours, that is to long to be contorted."
Pros: "the crew was wonderful, I was surprised that they had a little snack on such a short flight, the plane was clean and very comfortable. I plan to use Swiss Air again."
Pros: "Friendly Crew , modern and spacious aircraft B777"
Pros: "Punctuality, onboard service and the food served were all very good. Their app is very practical, no need to go to the counter except for dispatch of luggage."
Pros: "Throughout the long flight, the cabin crew was excellent. They were attentive and friendly. They avoided interrupting quiet time and rest time by keeping off the PA system (well done). The food was fantastic. We were lucky enough to get some business class tickets with points, and the food was amazing. Wine was excellent. This team was quite solicitous of my parent with reduced-mobility. And the bathrooms stayed clean throughout the flight. find this is often an areas where many airlines fall down. And it's too bad, because while I'm 100% sure it is no fun to clean a toilet while in flight, it is a really a big negative for the customers. Overall excellent attention to detail, with a cheerful and "can-do" crew that kept the plane "proper" throughout the flight and provided seamless service. Good stuff. Will fly again."
Pros: "All went fine and the crew friendly. 12 hours from Switzerland to Sao Paulo is extremely long time to sit in an airplane, but temperature and air were fine and the flight was without delay."
Pros: "Swiss service relayable"
Cons: "no light over my seat and I reported it before the plane took off. the plane was old, the entertainment system not as expected - really poor"
Pros: "Very well organized company beginning with the website, check in, boarding and the flight."
Pros: "good entertainment system, modern aircraft , friendly and competent crew"
Pros: "Swiss has the most cheerful crews I've seen, and their enthusiasm is infectious which makes it easier to tolerate being cramped in a plane for hours. Also, I love that they give you a Swiss chocolate at the en of the flight."
Pros: "The plane was very clean the seats were neat and everyone was very friendly."
Pros: "The crew was both fun and efficient. The food was definitely a step ahead of American owned airline companies. Very good choices of movies and entertainment."

Pros: "Very impressed with snack: good tasting quiche with biodegradable packaging and no plastic utensils. Thanks for being so green! On time flight."
Cons: "Flight from Barcelona was delayed for 2 hours, so we missed the flight from Zurich to New York."
Pros: "Good entertainment variety. Food was good, including snacks. Generous with drinks as well. Crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Letting us know about the delay prior to boarding could have allowed us to use our time better. Instead we sat at the gate and in the plane. Seats (economy) a bit closer to each other relative to other planes and the armrest does not fully go up which does not allow us to use space as much as possible."
Pros: "Crew were perfect food was fine"
Cons: "Seat was terrible. 44g is one of the worst seat ever. No place for the my legs..."
Cons: "We loose our flight and they didn't give us any chance to save some money on a new ticket."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entirety of the flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Seat too small, no room, will never fly Swiss again. This was an 11 hour flight and I need more space and comfort."
Cons: "There is little that can be done to make a long haul flight comfortable when a baby is screaming and crying for it's entire duration. Its behaviour cannot be helped. But it certainly didn't make the flight comfortable, nor did the young child kicking incessantly at the back of my and my daughter's seats. This could have occurred on any flight, but it didn't contribute to having a positive experience on this one. The flight attendant serving breakfast completely ignored that fact that I was awake and strolled past without asking if I would like anything as meals were being served. I informed another flight attendant that we hadn't been offered breakfast and she was able to provide us with meals. Besides this the cabin crew were courteous and pleasant. I've flown with Swiss on other occasions and have had better experiences. I'd like to think this was just a one off and not representative of the level of service that Swiss normally provides."
The flight was affordable. However, the chairs were very uncomfortable.
Few problems I’ve discovered: 1. The e-ticket icons were misleading, lead me to believe one carry-on was included (image attached). End up costing me $100 for the carry-on at the counter. 2. Avianca does not allow booking to be managed if ticket purchased via 3rd party. I couldn’t purchase carry-on online or upgrade my ticket. 3. Avianca charged me $10 to use the counter instead of using the kiosk. But the kiosks were behind yellow (do not trespass) tape. The lady at the counter said nothing she could do about it.
Pros: "Seats are good and crew excellent"
Cons: "I miss the jack Daniels"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, the food was good and the entertainment too."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat, food and the delay"
Cons: "Aviões muito velhos e comida muito fraca."

Pros: "Nothing. I wish I could give negative stars."
Cons: "Everything was bad. Super delayed, terrible explanation. Had to stay overnight in the airport in the worst lounge I’ve ever seen in my life. Got a hotel voucher but by the time I would have gotten through immigration and got to a hotel I would have had 1 hour to “sleep” before having to get back to the airport for the 4 am flight which was then delayed again to 5am. After all this, we only got a $250 voucher on a $1500 flight. When I asked about business class upgrades they said they had seats open but it would cost $400! For a seat that stayed empty Instead of giving it to a customer who had been through the worst travel experience of their life. The flight attendants seemed like they really couldn’t give a damn about helping out customers and it’s the only airline I’ve ever interacted with where no one speaks English. One guy actually rolled his eyes when I asked him for the meal I missed when I was sleeping."
Cons: "Seat was ahead of the emergency row so it didn’t recline. Was super uncomfortable and it would have been nice to get a heads up that the seats wouldn’t go down."

I agreed and had to make arrangements to make transportation from manisales to pereira,for my surprise on the way to manisales the flight got redirected to Pereira my original destination, that was great but created another inconvenience for my transportation arrangements."
Pros: "Muy puntual, excelente servicio a bordo"

Pros: "Everything, really good company"
Cons: "I know the space for legs is not great, but in a flight this long, with a kid, and none of the TVs working... Not cool."
Cons: "The original flight was booked to dec 11th 2016 at 10:20am. On dex 9th at about 10pm i got a text message and email telling that my flight was rescheduled and asking me to call Avianca. So i did, and my new flight was booked to leave 2:18pm, arriving in Salvador at night. I asked for options, they offered me a flight at 6am and another at 8:30 am. I said that i would talk to my party and return the call, and we choose the 8:30 flight. When i called back, they said this flight had only 3 seats (we were a party of 6 adt, 1 chd and 2 inf). In the avianca site they were offering the flight for the whole party, but, of course, with a higher rate that i paid in june. The person said she coulndt book it for me, and i should call the SAC (client service) to try to solve the problem. I called the SAC and after 40min in the phone they were able to put everybody on the desired flight. I felt that they were trying to rebook us on a cheaper flight, letting the seats with highest fares to be sold to someone else. Since it was their fault the flight changing, i think it was a bad experience in my first flight with Avianca. Probably will avoid them in the future."
Pros: "My seat."
Cons: "Our flight was an hour late taking off and no explanation was given as many of the passengers kept asking what was the problem. The flight attendants need to work on their attitudes and responsibilities. The flight was predominantly Brazilian passengers but the Avianca crew showed displeasure when asked questions in Portuguese by many different customers such as a beverage (one attendant told an older gentleman near me that a tray of drinks was available at the back of the plane and to go an get some if he like. Rude!!) It was just a very disagreeable experience flying on Avianca"
Pros: "The crew was more attentive"
Cons: "Everything was fine except the lack of` air conditioning at boarding time"
Pros: "The Crew is well trained."
Cons: "They damage my luggage."
Pros: "The service is great, the staff is very warm and polite! Definitely a plus!"
Cons: "The food is HORRIBLE I didnt like that some seats (on the same row) had pillows and blankets for some and not for all... arent we all in the same class? The amount of miles is a joke. I fly with copa from Panama directly to Miami and I get 1161 miles, here, I flew from Panama to Colombia (1hr) to then go back up (passing thru Panama again) which means 2 more hours of flight and the total amount of miles from Panama to Miami with avianca is 967."
Pros: "Avianca is always nice people. very Respectful"
Cons: "it was very dissapointing that the airline changed the aircraft in two of my flights. first it was a B787 from Bogota to Sao Paulo, it was changed for a A330....and after they changed the A330 which was my flight to Lima from Sao Paulo for a A320 and it was very unconfortable for a long haul flight."
Pros: "I was able to stay in an aisle seat. The flighd didn't have much turbulence. The landing was very smooth."
Cons: "Flight atendants weren't much friendly. Boarding process took a lot of time to complete and during this time it was warm inside the airplane."
