There was no internet in the airport and/or entertainment options on the flight.
Slow service, difficult internet.
Die Pünktlichkeit bei Swiss lässt zu wünschen übrig. Jede Woche mindestens 45 Minuten bis zu zu 105 Minuten Verspätung sind ein absolutes NoGo!
Negativ: "Alles tipptopp!"
Positiv: "The crew and entertainment"
Positiv: "Bei diesem knappen Abstand zwischen den Sitzen sollte man die Lehnen nicht bewegen können."
Negativ: "Vepflegung: käsesändwich nicht sehr angenehm"
Positiv: "Crew was great, seat comfortable, food was fine."
Negativ: "Check-in personnel didn't quite know how to deal with a Green Card holder. Passport check before boarding creates a mess."
Positiv: "Sauberkeit.Gut Informiert"
Negativ: "Das Verpflegung"
Positiv: "Das a la carte Menue war sehr gut, kein Vergleich zum normalen essen"
Negativ: "der Gang ist ziemlich eng zum laufen"
Negativ: "Flight was late"
Positiv: "fresh baked bread!"
Negativ: "fight was delayed almost 4 hours. we were stuck on the plane for over 2 hours before liftoff while technical difficulties were worked out. no compensation offered."
Positiv: "Lost the luggage"
Negativ: "Der Informationsserivce von Kayak war die reinste Katastrophe. Ich habe keine Buchungsnummer erhalten, wusste nicht zu welchem Terminal."
Positiv: "Die Crew war OK, die Monitore waren gut, die Maschine der Edelweiss eine A330-300 (Chäsrueg) ist eher neu, sieht man auch an den WC"
Negativ: "Der Sitzabstand ist eine Katastrophe und auf keinem Fall 31inch wie es auf Seatguru steht und wird mich davon abhalten jemals wieder Edelweiss zu fliegen, jeder Passagier über 170cm wird leiden."
Negativ: "Seat comfort. Sore behind after 11hrs"
Positiv: "super crew"
Negativ: "Wifi, Mehr Information über die App"
Positiv: "Crew was great"
Negativ: "suddnely delay of 30 Minutes , then waiting in the plane all in all 60 Minutes - thats a long time for a long distance flight"
Positiv: "Die Besatzung auf diesem Flug war ausserordentlich. Sehr nett und aufmerksam."
Positiv: "Leider ziemlich unfreundlich, ungewöhnlich für Swiss"
Positiv: "Nette Crew, wie immer. Schoggi am Ende. Bequeme Sitze."
Negativ: "Wartezeit am Gepäckband und verspätete Ankunft resultierend in 40min Wartezeit."
Positiv: "Freundliches Personal; nützliche Informationen zu Verspätungen etc."
Negativ: "Sehr wenig Beinfreiheit; Verspätung beim Abflug, Warteschleife vor Landung"
Positiv: "Freundlich, pünktlich, gute Getränkeauswahl und Snack"
Negativ: "Crew was rude and slow"
Positiv: "Die lockere, freundliche Art des Personals. Trotz günstigem Tarif erhielt jeder ein kleines Sandwich...vielleicht aufgrund der 45 Minuten Verspätung, was ja nun einfach passieren kann."
Positiv: "Short flight, no entertainment. They still offer free snacks on short flights, a plus, but it was an almost frozen cheese sandwich. A Little bag of pretzels would be better. The crew was very friendly."
Negativ: "Boarding is confusing. Bad lines, unorganized, and people pushing. They should probably come up with a better system."
Positiv: "Sehr nettes Personal"
Negativ: "20 Minuten Verspätung, wie fast immer ab Tegel..."
Positiv: "The business class ground crew proposed to check in our hand baggage and were very helpful. (We were in economy class) It was my birthday and i was very touched to receive a spontaneously made card and some chocolate truffles and a smile from the flight crew."
Negativ: "I think the choice of films could be improved."
Positiv: "Attendants were attentive and efficient"
Negativ: "Getting from one the deplaning pad to a gate on the opposite side of the airport was daunting given that we were running 1/2 hour behind schedule. We made it with barely enough time, but our luggage did not."
Positiv: "Sehr freundliche Personal ."
Positiv: "Friendly staff On time"
Negativ: "Seats (legs)"
Negativ: "Special Meal war nicht wie bestellt verfügbar."
Positiv: "Es war alles im grünen Bereich, wenn man einmal vom allgegenwärtigen Sound von gefühlt 100 übermüdeten Kleinkinder und Babies absieht. Die Sandwiches schmecken gut und die Biberli auch. Eine gute Verpflegung für einen solch kurzen Flug."
Negativ: "Schade, dass der Flug so spät ist. Ich sags jetzt trotzdem, auch wenn laut Watson nun alle Flugbegleiter/innen mit den Augen rollen werden: Ich vermisse den Tomatensaft. Er befriedigt mein Bedürfnis, ein Glas in der Hand zu halten und gleichzeitig etwas salziges zu mir nehmen zu können."
Positiv: "Personal sehr freundlich."
Negativ: "In Wien wieder einmal Chaos beim Boarding, da kein priority aufgerufen wurde. Essen in der Business sind nur noch drei winzige Häppchen."
Negativ: "Too hot. Too late. Staff could have been more accommodating. Online checkin was impossible."
Negativ: "Not enough sandwiches for all passengers on board Seat rows very close together, no way to avoid contact with seat in front"
Positiv: "Customer service excellent even though I was in the economic class they made me feel first class!"
Negativ: "Kurzfristiger Wechsel des Flugzeugs, Änderung des Sitzplatzes"
Positiv: "Very little."
Negativ: "Boarding was difficult with poor communication, before impolite request for spot check of carry-on bag and person. Ended up being one of the last to board. Entertainment system did not work, and after 4 requests for assistance to different crew members finally gave up asking and so had no entertainment for whole of flight. The last of the crew members suggested that an alternative seat or a future flight voucher could be given, but neither of these materialized. Food mediocre, and crew polite, but some not particularly friendly."
Positiv: "Staff, food, on board entertainment all very impressive. Great flight."
Positiv: "The crew was great and the flight itself was fine"
Negativ: "The checking in experience was chaotic. I was told I was on standby for my connecting flight to New York. The flight was delayed by almost an hour and a half."
Positiv: "Crew war trotzdem bemüht"
Negativ: "Getränke vorab fürs lange warten wären gut gewesen. Die Hitze im Flugzeug war unerträglich, die letzten 20 min. wurde es dann doch noch besser."
Positiv: "From boarding to disembarking, flying SWISS First is an experience. Attention to detail, great staff, wonderful food. And the seat is very roomy and comfortable."
Negativ: "Sadly, the IFE system was malfunct -but there were magazines and newspapers instead."
Positiv: "Sehr freundliches Personal am Check-in"
Negativ: "Keine Lademöglichkeiten/ Steckdosen etc. Im Flieger"
Positiv: "Service und Verpflegung an Board"
Negativ: "Der verspätete Abflug welcher sich auf 1.5 Std verzögert hat."
Positiv: "Mit Swiss von und nach Zürich ist immer hervorragend."
Negativ: "Ein Mitglied der Kabienencrew hatte wohl einen schlechten Tag."
Positiv: "Everyone was so nice!"
Negativ: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Positiv: "Freundliche Bedienung"
Negativ: "fast 4 Stunden verspäteter Abflug, ca. 1.5 Stunden nach Boarding stand der Flueger noch immer am Dock"
Positiv: "The food."
Negativ: "They didn't offer hot drinks like coffee/tea."
Trotz zweimaliger Mail und Einstellungen im Profil war keine „dairy free“ Essen möglich :(
Weg mit der Maskenpflicht! Sonst alles gut.
Die Maskenpflicht könnte man aufheben! Ansonsten alles gut.
Dienstleistung wurde nicht geliefert wie gebucht und ich musste trotzdem Stornierungskosten übernehmen. Nie wieder.
Mehr MNS Kontrollen während des Fluges, einige Fluggäste haben Maske nicht korrekt getragen Getränke Service inkludieren. Erwarte ich mir bei einer Premium Airline
Positiv: "The crew members were so sweet."
Negativ: "Flight was late. I missed my connection."
Positiv: "Super friendly and efficient crew. Tasty food, excellent, first rate service (business class)."
Negativ: "Business class seat was comfortable, though a bit too narrow; when seat was horizontal my arm was constantly falling in the aisle."
Positiv: "Schöner kleiner Flieger"
Positiv: "Austrian... einfach sehr pünktlich!"
Negativ: "Sitzabstand und die Klimaanlage an den Füßen nicht so kalt stellen."
Positiv: "Freundlichkeit der Crew."
Negativ: "Die Turbulenzen. Leider nicht beeinflussbar."
Negativ: "Verspätung war unschön."
Negativ: "The Austrian airlines website is absolutely the worst and least user friendly that I've seen for an airline. I tried paying for my bags and it rejected half of the itinerary's bookings for no reason. It took a ton of clicks to get stuff done and I kept getting errors. Very limited movie selection."
Positiv: "Friendly crew"
Negativ: "Boarding was a little off because we had to wait longer than expected for bused to bring us to plane . They should have Waited until buses arrived and then had passengers go through the gates so everyone could remain seated at the gate and not wait 20 minutes while standing."
Negativ: "Terrible food and service"
Positiv: "Wifi onboard"
Negativ: "Wifi über paypal buchbar, aber Paypal verlangte SMS authentifizierung, was während des Fluges logischerweise nicht ging."
Positiv: "Food was good. Plane was good."
Negativ: "Night flight should turn off light. Staff was not skillful and professional."
Negativ: "Personal am Gate überfordert und extrem langsam. Alles verspätet: Informationen, Boarding, Abflug, Ankunft, Aussteigen - wie bei Austrian "normal". Daher fliege ich mit Austrian nur dann, wenn es nicht anders geht."
Negativ: "Pünktlich abfliegen, schnelle Gepäckabwicklung, wenigstens noch eine salzige Alternative zu süß"
Positiv: "Crew was friendly and helpful, food was tasty and flight was nice and smooth."
Negativ: "It would be wonderful to have all seats the same as first class for a long distance flight."
Positiv: "Catering in business toll"
Negativ: "Verspätung. Leider jede Woche mittlerweile"
Negativ: "Gepäck könnte nicht an Zielort durchgecheckt werden Durchgeführt von Eurowings"
Positiv: "Nettes Bodenpersonal"
Negativ: "70 Minuten Verspätung auf einem 40 Minuten Flug Nicht mal die Auswahl zwischen süß und salzigem Snack"
Positiv: "Everything from boarding, service on board, disembarking--- easy and efficient--polite and friendly"
Positiv: "From start to finish, Sevdije was in great hands. She had to be in a wheelchair, and there were three connecting flights in countries where she doesn't speak the language. It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
Positiv: "Very nice staff on board and timely departure"
Negativ: "Cold during the flight"
Positiv: "Um diese Zeit wird das Programm abgespult, da erlebt man selten highlights. Allerdings war die abgespulte Leistung i.O."
Negativ: "Leider war das Flugzeug sehr voll, somit war es unangenehm eng."
Positiv: "Das Flugzeug war sehr angenehm, vermutlich noch relativ neu. Das Entertainment-System fiel dadurch positiv auf, dass es funktionierte, viele praktische Auswahlmöglichkeiten. Vglw. gutes Essen, welches den Europäern auch freundlich serviert wurde."
Negativ: "Offenbar war ein Teil des Personals nicht ganz frei von Vorurteilen ggü. Asiaten. Die unterschiedliche Behandlung fiel bei einigen Gelegenheiten auf. Leider war das ansonsten angenehme Flugzeug sehr eng und voll besetzt."
Negativ: "Alte Maschine. Ein Stück abgepackter Kuchen"
Positiv: "Nothing at all."
Negativ: "Couldn’t get on the flight due to two cancellations of prior connecting flights. Utterly, totally unacceptable - and no explanation of why."
Negativ: "Flug ist ausgefallen"
Negativ: "Maschine ist 40 Minuten zu spät nach Berlin gekommen, in Summe 100 Minuten Verspätung, das Bodenpersonal war dann zu wenig um mit der Verspätung halbwegs umgehen zu können."
Positiv: "Boarding was great. As it was a short there was no entertainment. I would have chosen N/A bit that wasn’t an option hence the one star."
Negativ: "I wish there was an option of a sandwich vice sweet or pretzels."
Positiv: "The attendants on Austrian air are all very nice and helpful. You can make any request of them or ask any question and they are happy to help. Great customer service. Arrived on time. Also, very good entertainment options!"
Negativ: "The seats are very uncomfortable on Austrian air. The only way I would fly them again would be if I had extra money for the exit rows with more leg room. Food isn't great, but no airline food is really great. Boarding was significantly delayed from what it said on the boarding pass, with no updates. But we arrived on time. Getting luggage after flight at Dulles took a really long time, but I think that is more of an airport issue as getting my luggage from another Austrian airlines flight to another airport was a breeze."
Positiv: "Dass es nur eine Stunde Verspätung war"
Negativ: "Dass Swiss gebucht wurde und Austria ihn durchführte, dass die Anschlussverbindungen nicht geklappt hat"
Positiv: "I get Airpoints with the flight, crew were lovely."
Negativ: "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."
Negativ: "das essen und Service in der Business class lässt mittlerweile immer mehr zu wünschen übrig. statt Verbesserungen wird hier anscheinend auch schon immer mehr der sparstift angesetzt."
Negativ: "The plane was HUGE, too big. With such a big plane the crowd formed by the gate waiting to board was unmanageable. Also the giant plane felt like it was hard to maneuver during take off and landing. I would very much prefer a smaller plane. The touch screen in front of me was not always responding when I tried to tap the screen. The audio jack was also not working great; sometimes I did not have audio in my right earbud and I had to turn and fidget the plug. The earbuds provided by the airline did not even work when plugged into the screen, I had to use my own earbuds."
Negativ: "Beinfreiheit in der ersten reihe bescheiden. kein welcome drink. zuerst wird nach dem essen gefragt, serviert und dann kommt erst das Getränk. einmal wird nachgeschenkt, der rest nur nach Aufforderung. weder Erfrischungstücher werden gereicht, noch sonstige Aufmerksamkeiten. leider auch noch etwas über eine stunde Verspätung. alles in allem: bei einem 3, stunden flug in business class erwarte ich mir etwas mehr."
Negativ: "I had a weelchair and nobody assist me in Viene in Austria And I lost"
Positiv: "It was a total nightmare all Austrian flights they put us on were canceled !!! We did not leave Vienna for another 7 h a total nightmare all planes had technically difuculties !! Austrian airlines had total chaos !!!"
Positiv: "The crew was friendly, seats were comfortable and boarding was prompt and fast."
Negativ: "The food was not good at all and the entertainment selection was so limited. This was so weird because coming back from Vienna it was the complete opposite."
Positiv: "The flight attendants worked very hard Patient and courteous."
Negativ: "Drinks are varied Food needs improvement The bread is low The vegetarian meal is poor"
Positiv: "Safe trip"
Negativ: "There were a large group of very smelly passengers that came in at the end portion of boarding. The AC counldnt handle it and the crew didn’t use any spray to save the rest of us suffocating passengers. Thank goodness the flight was short."
Negativ: "Lufthansa’s/Austrian Airlines’s idea of a ‘snack’ is a pathetic little bag of sugar and chemicals that no one should have to be offered, even if it comes for free. Hugely disappointed. Flight attendants not attentive enough, and it took forever for the flight attendant to come after I’ve pressed the call button. Overall impression: meh! First time flying Austrian, but next time I’ll probably book with their competitors if prices are similar."
Positiv: "Mehr oder weniger pünktlicher Abflug und Ankunft, der Flug kurzweilig und aufmerksames Mitarbeiter."
Negativ: "Etwas mühsames Boarding, aber auch das war kein wirkliches Problem"
Alles, Bestens! Lufthansa-Qualität
Kein essen für Business Class Passagiere. Covid!
I was surprised that I had to pay for soda! In my mind a coke should be free.
4 hours late. This after already traveling for 20 hours. It was simply miserable, and simply typical. What is wrong with the air industry right now?
There was some confusion at the Lufthansa Service Center in the Frankfurt airport. The guy there gave me the wrong information about boarding passes for my connecting flight that led to a lot of running around. But the flights themselves were fine. Staff were helpful. Food leaving Germany was great, but food leaving the US was mediocre.
Ich hatte eigentlich das Niveau eines Linienflugs erwartet. Bekommen habe ich aber Billigflieger- Niveau. Das man für die Bordverpflegung zahlen muss, ist schon schräg. Das Stille Wasser und die 20g Schokoladentafel kann sich Lufthansa dann auch noch sparen, um den Gewinn richtig zu maximieren😡. Da kann man auch gleich mit Ryanair, easyJet oder sonst einem Billigflieger reisen.
Leider wurde unser Gepäck vom Mumbai Flug nicht auf den Basel Flug gebracht, so dass wir ohne Gepäck in Basel ankamen. Auch wurde diese Information wohl erst spät nach Basel gebracht,da wir dort ewig auf unser Gepäck gewartet haben bis wir informiert wurden. Das trübt den ansonsten sehr guten Flug.
Denied boarding at the document check line. In line with all the other passengers but were the only ones denies boarding. We’re told the gate had closed.
Like: The flight attendants Do better: be on time. You informed us of a 25 minute delay…..that turned into over an our….probable cause - under staffed baggage handling to load the plane. In Newark we waited in excess of 30 minutes to see our luggage so we could transfer to our next domestic connection. Result - missed connection. Probable cause - under staffed or poorly functioning baggage handling.
Positiv: "Crew could have been a little more friendly. Seating was great"
Negativ: "Had a 3 he delay due to technical issues on the aircraft.. this was the third time it happened in the last four months"
Positiv: "nicht angetreten"
Negativ: "verfallen lassen - nach Köln war es billiger als nach FRA"
Positiv: "Flug war püntlich"
Negativ: "SARS-CoV-2 und Abstandsgebot gibt es für LH nicht!? Biz mit nur 1 PAX bis Row 6, Eco bis Row 10 alle Reihen unbesetzt (Trimmung). Dahinter die Rows dicht besetzt, teilweise 2x2 im ohnehin schon eng bestuhlten CRJ. Bei Ankunft Busposition mit nur 1 Bus (Abstand im Bus??)."
Positiv: "Nette Crew, bequemer Sitz. Leckeres Sandwich"
Negativ: "WLAN dürfte doch auch gratis möglich sein ;-)"
Positiv: "The crew were friendly enough and willing to serve."
Negativ: "The seat could have been thicker and softer for greater comfort--instead, it was thin and flimsy. There should also be greater space/pitch between the rows of seats."
Negativ: "All god nice flight crew helpful. A well organized flight just what you would expect from a German airline"
Negativ: "Absolut kein Platz für ein kleines Handgepäck weil andere Leute rücksichtslos ihren ganzen Hausstand dabei haben und die Lufthansa es nicht interessiert, wieviel jeder da so mitbringt. Personal führt lieber Privatgespräche und beobachtet einen, wie man verzweifelt nach Platz such, anstatt zu helfen."
Positiv: "The crew did a good job dealing with so many customers and in one instance was able to resolve a minor conflict with seat way backs."
Negativ: "The seats should be fixed to prevent them from going back as far as they do. With space so small as it is, it is unnecessary to have them go back so far if at all. The food was poor, especially the cold egg and pepper sandwich at the end. My guess is that they were suppose to be heated which would have made them much better but the crew decided to give them out cold."
Negativ: "Essen wurde nicht ausgeteilt"
Positiv: "Crew was very good. Food was OK."
Negativ: "Individual space was tight made worse by some inconsiderate people who put their seats as far back as possible. This should be regulated."
Positiv: "Crew war nett"
Negativ: "Passagiere wurden umgesetzt"
Negativ: "Only reason I chose Lufthansa was that I was informed that 23kg of checked in luggage was included. It was NOT. I don't care whose fault it is. Lufthansa still says that this is included on their website. I demand reimbursement."
Positiv: "The flight was only about 1 hour. Everything ran smoothly once we took off. The crew was very good, providing gate information for connecting passengers."
Negativ: "It would have been better if we had departed on time. I don't remember why there was a late departure but it made it difficult for some passengers to make their connecting flight. My husband and I hurried to the gate for our flight to Washington, DC but that flight left late, too."
Negativ: "Verpflegung fehlte kpl"
Negativ: "2 Stunden Wartezeit an der Passkontrolle"
Negativ: "Schlechtestes Bordessen seit Jahren. Alles vollkommen geschmacklos. Chicken Curry richtig schlecht, wie es gut geht zeigt United. Ein vertrocknetes Brötchen als Beilage dass eigentlich niemandem mehr angeboten werden kann."
Positiv: "Guter Flug"
Negativ: "Aus einem unbekannten Grund kam die Crew verspätet, daraus wurde eine halbe Stunde später gestartet."
Positiv: "Everything Else"
Negativ: "Too much cabin baggage."
Negativ: "Getränkeauswahl sehr klein"
Negativ: "• Die Zwangsbelüftung verteilte einen ungewohnt starken und eiskalten Wind, und diese Einstellung wurde nicht abgemildert! • Die Freundlichkeit der Stewardess. • Der Klapptisch war einseitig abgebrochen, sodass nichts darauf liegen konnte."
Positiv: "guter Lufthansa Standard"
Negativ: "KEIN WiFi... 2019... really?"
Positiv: "Gute Verpflegung und Betreuung während des Fluges (Getränke)"
Negativ: "Kabinenpersonal hat sich ständig laut privat unterhalten (mein Sitz war direkt vor dem Service-Bereich...)"
Positiv: "Maschine war ganz leer, Crew super nett Frühstück in MUC Lounge gut"
Negativ: "LH typisch keinen Komfort, Internet zum bezahlen, Catering mies"
Negativ: "Die Koffer wurden einfach nicht verladen, da kein Platz mehr war. Und das zu Weihnachten."
Negativ: "Unpünktlich, Frankfurt mega unfreundlich Security Check!!!"
Positiv: "Personal an Bord war trotz Verspätung aufmerksam- der Pilot liess sich sogar zu ein paar spassigen Bemerkungen hinreissen."
Negativ: "Der Flug ging 1 Stunde verspätet, weil die Maschine schon verspätet aus München kam. Am Gate gab es zunächst überhaupt keine Info/keine Ansage. Über die Verzögerung wurden die Gäste erst durch eine SMS informiert. Es dauerte dann ca. 30 Minuten bis die Dame am Gate sich eine erste kurze Ansage abgerungen hat. Das Boarding dauert schließlich auch unendlich lange/ Maschine war komplett ausgebucht. Besser wäre gewesen, von hinten nach vorne die Maschine zu füllen, nicht kreuz und quer durcheinander, bis jeder dann sein Gepäck verstaut hat - das kostete zusätzlich Zeit."
Positiv: "Das Flugpersonal war total freundlich und hilfsbereit. Ausgezeichneter Service."
Negativ: "Das Boarding hat etwas lange gedauert."
Positiv: "Das Personal war sehr zuvorkommend jung und wirklich nett! Alle Ansagen im Flugzeug waren ausführlicher und netter als für gewöhnlich"
Negativ: "Flight was delayed more than 1 hour 30 minutes"
Positiv: "Angenehmes Personal. Abwicklung wie gewohnt."
Negativ: "Der vorausgehende Flug war verspätet lautes Rauschen in der Kabine offenbar durch Hilfsaggregat."
Negativ: "Entertainment system and touchscreen were not working properly. Seat tray was not horizontal. Salad was not edible (bitter)."
Negativ: "boarding was late and slow, arrival at Frankfurt late"
Positiv: "I especially like the comfortable seats with plenty of legroom. The flight was on time - perfect!"
Positiv: "Es gab zwar eine kleine Verspätung aber diese und deren Ursache wurden am Gate angesagt. Nettes und effizient arbeitendes Bordpersonal und freundlich vorgetragene Begrüßung, Ansagen und Verabschiedung. Flug war ruhig und entspannt. Gerne wieder!"
Positiv: "food was above average drinks were provided often entertainment selection was great staff was well mannered and smiling"
Negativ: "Lost a whole day and a half of vacation!"
Negativ: "schlechtes catering in business class. service ist absolut unpersönlich. hier stimmt preis Leistung überhaupt nicht"
Positiv: "sehr aufmerksam"
Positiv: "Super nettes und freundliches Flugpersonal Verpflegung war top"
Positiv: "Crew was amazing, personable,joked around. I though boarding would take forever but very smooth."
Negativ: "Honestly...being stuffed in like sardines ....it is getting worse. maybe the older I get the more I see it....but its so uncomfortable. I think the old days were much better!"
Positiv: "Quick flight. Quiet and peaceful."
Negativ: "Snacks are kinda lame."
Positiv: "Excellent pre Boarding service and announcements; reasonably comfortable seats; great landing;"
Negativ: "There are never gluten free options in the snacks; there were no entertainment systems on the plane - that's not important to me but perhaps it is to others."
Negativ: "Flight was delayed over an hour and that added to an already for a very long day. We also ended up waiting a long time while aboard. There apparently was a weight balancing issue. It took them a long time to let us know why we were sitting there. Otherwise everything was okay."
Negativ: "There was an almost 4 hour delay that WestJet is taking no responsibility for, and their online chat agents lack any compassion or understanding. Also received an email saying the aircraft changed and there would be a seatback flight entertainment system but there wasn't."
Negativ: "WE WERE NOT NOTIFIED OF A GATE CHANGE IN CALGARY WHEN WE GOT TO THE AIRPORT. VERY CONFUSING. wE HAD TO ASK."
Positiv: "Roomie seat. Professional curdious crew. Fast smooth flight. Westjet connect access for entertainment."
Positiv: "Good crew and on time departure"
Negativ: "Overnight flight. How nice it would have been to have blanket and pillows as provided by some airlines ."
Positiv: "Amazing crew. Very thankful my flight went smooth as I flew with my puppy."
Positiv: "Great and responsive crew, still-amusing WestJet wit. Very organized!"
Negativ: "Some older (like 1940s-1950s) movies for in-flight entertainment would have been great."
Positiv: "No frills. Friendly staff."
Positiv: "Left early and arrived early"
Negativ: "Cabin was way too warm. Also not as much space on 737-700 as 737-800"
Negativ: "The entire plane smelt like the washroom, and a mix of engine fuel. I wasn't extremely thrilled about that."
Positiv: "Paul an der checkin war freundlich und hat mir einen neuen Flug gefunden mit KLM."
Negativ: "Flug von Ottawa nach Toronto wurde gestrichen und ich bekam eine email 1,5 Stunden vorher dass mein neuer Flug um 14:00 vorgeschoben wurden ist. Dadurch habe ich meinen Anschluss nach Paris verpasst. Muss jetzt ein Tag später raus fliegen. Kommunikation häte besser sein können."
Positiv: "Getting home"
Negativ: "Leaving Montreal"
Positiv: "Nice new 737 max aircraft"
Negativ: "My returning flights were not correct. I ended up having 2 returning flights back to Halifax which made me have to overnight in Toronto unexpectedly."
Positiv: "I liked the price for my flight however I booked using my AirMiles."
Negativ: "I have travel with WestJet many times is the past and had nothing but good to say. This was my first time using WestJet Encore and was totally shocked and disappointed. The flight crew i found to be very rude with and had an attitude. The biggest shock was the greetings and all announcements were in English accept the safety rules where the pre-recorded tape was played. If asked about the return flight from Halifax to Montreal, one word to describe it "disaster". I was totally turned off with WestJet. I will for sure continue using Porter as I was always pleased with there service. As they say "you get what you pay for"."
Positiv: "relatively inexpensive"
Negativ: "my knees were pressed against the seat in front of me the flight left late, so arrived ~2.5 hours late"
Negativ: "I missed the food"
Positiv: "The crew are always great."
Negativ: "The past few times my flight has been delayed"
Negativ: "Head crew person was lazy and bad attitude. The rest were very good"
Positiv: "An uneventful and comfortable trip, well.. as comfortable as any aircraft gets :)"
Positiv: "The crew remained quite calm and polite in a stressful situation, and they gave us free food and drinks for the inconvenience."
Negativ: "There was an issue with plane's landing gear so we were delayed by over 2 hours (where we just sat in the plane on the tarmac) and we had to fly with the landing gear down the whole time. This meant we had to fly at 12,000 feet the whole time so it took longer, no luggage was brought on the plane, and passengers had to be moved around to redistribute weight, but we were never really told why or what was going on in terms of how it all worked which was quite scary. I'd say close to half the passengers actually got off the plane because they didn't feel safe flying. We got in over 4 hours later than anticipated with 0 luggage. Overall the flight was very scary and now we have no luggage. Had the option of having out luggage delivered the next day or a $100 travel credit. No credit or any compensation if the luggage was delivered."
Positiv: "I didn't!"
Negativ: "Late, late, late! I was a prisoner in my seat."
Positiv: "Good price for long haul destination. Efficient check-in and boarding process. Decent leg room for a budget airline."
Negativ: "Food choice a bit limited - especially the free offering. In-flight entertainment is only available from the WestJet app to view on your own device - you need to know this before you board - otherwise you are not able to access any of the movies etc."
Positiv: "Made it home faster than thought."
Negativ: "Could use a pillow/blanket on a long, overnight flight like this. Small amounts of turbulence also cancelled in-flight services. Very uncomfortable flight."
Positiv: "good value for money. Staff were helpful"
Negativ: "A direct route from St John's to London."
Negativ: "Leaving Gatwick 30 minutes late had us miss our planned Halifax to Toronto. The next flight was 4.5 hours later. After a trans Atlantic, that is horrid."
Positiv: "Boarding etc was organized and efficient."
Negativ: "Did not find the crew helpful or friendly."
Positiv: "The flight was on time."
Positiv: "The on board entertainment is very good, just remember to download the westjet connect app."
Negativ: "Seats are ok, very cramped together, hard to get in and out of. I had picked plus seats but kayak didn't honor my selection so was forced to sit at the rear of the plane. As for the flight itself, the airliner sells only Coca Cola products, no cash purchases, credit and debit only. No free bag checks,"
Positiv: "Staff was friendly and very helpful. Made sure you were well looked after. The entertainment was top notch as well, but would have preferred a tablet or seat screen for international flights."
Negativ: "I upgraded to Plus for my flight and I expected more leg room, because I am 6'5. I felt cramped and couldn't sleep. Emergency exit would have been better. My neck hurt after the flight because you have to look down at your phone the whole time while watching movies. Food was mediocre, it wasn't top of the line. Wont fly westjet again."
Negativ: "Very few options were available to redirect me to my final destination"
Positiv: "Downloaded WestJet app in Toronto while waiting to board the next flight. Enjoyed the selection of free movies and TV shows. Flight was on time."
Negativ: "The connecting flight to Halifax was a long haul at the end of B terminal. Same airline, just really far away! Maybe it has to be that way due to the international arrival, but it was stressful. Wear tennis shoes! Flight attendants were efficient but not as friendly as the Toronto folks. The advertised “power at every seat” did not work."
Negativ: "Electrical was out so not able to charge my device"
Negativ: "Doing in flight entertainment via app is a fine idea. But your app requires way too many permissions so I won't use it. Otherwise, an excellent airline."
Positiv: "Very pleasant crew. Flight left on time and arrived early."
Positiv: "I'm trying real hard not to give WestJet a hard time but my seatmate had genuine mobility issues and the walk to the gate AND out to the plane which was unusually far from the terminal...little help here folks!"
Positiv: "Complimentary drinks"
Positiv: "When I stepped onto the plane, there was someone there to greet you. That was nice."
Positiv: "All staff I encountered were amazing."
Negativ: "This was where the real fun in my trip happened. After my arriving flight got in 2 hours late and sat on the runway for 45 minutes because there was too many planes in the way for my plane to get to the gate I was not in the mood to run across the airport to go through customs and then through security (for the second time). However in order to make it onto this final flight that's exactly what I had to do. I also might add that it is incredibly stupid that connecting flights have to go through security again after deplaning, it's not like we're suddenly going to have weapons or anything so why waste that time? After I sprinted across the airport and got onto the plane the pilot announced that we were waiting to hear from the airport to take off. Long story short the poor pilot was trying to figure out what was going on but no one was even answering his calls. Eventually he realized that the plane hadn't been refueled and had to get a hole of them to refuel. At one point he must have gotten really frustrated because he left the plane in search of answers as the Toronto airport wasn't giving him any. Eventually after 2 hours of sitting on the plane we refueled and took off. On top of that my travel partner didn't get her luggage, we assumed that the Toronto airport lost it somewhere or something. Overall a complete nightmare."
Negativ: "The flight was somewhat delayed but everywhere it announced it was in time. Even at the luggage carousel upon arrival. Must keep the statistics up!!"
Positiv: "very amusing male steward! (welcome to westjet flight xxx to cancun!")"
Negativ: "well, someday i hope to be able to experience "first class!" travel, but all in all, quite adequate! i always try to fly westjet in canada."
Positiv: "I made it sure my destination safely."
Negativ: "When I drove up Toronto’s Pearson Airport, I expected the usual check-in process upon entry for my flight from Toronto to Warsaw (with connecting flights in Halifax and Frankfurt). However, my first surprise, despite me asking ahead of time, was that my small check-in bag would could $100 CDN instead of the $25.00 I was quoted. Despite the WestJest/Condor representatives best effort, I was told that I would, unfortunately, have to pay for the baggage despite the quote I was given. I paid the fee, was given tracking numbers, and asked for my boarding passes. I found it odd that my final flight from Frankfurt to Warsaw did not print out. I asked if this would be a problem for me and my bags arriving on timed, and I was told it would not be, as it is sometimes the case that passengers have to print out boarding passes at the next stop. I flew to Halifax and asked for a boarding pass from Frankfut to Warsaw (which I was told was still a Condor plane), and it was printed for me. Upon arriving in Frankfurt and waiting patiently, something inside caused me to ask about the status of my bags. To my utter shock, and the genuine honesty of my Condor representative in Germany, I was told that my next flight would actually be LOT (Polish Airlines) flight, and that my bags needed to be picked up from baggage claim and checked into my LOT flight. With less than 10 minutes left before boarding and the suggestion of an honest Condor official I was told not to bother trying to go to baggage claim and fill out a missing/delayed baggage claim at LOTs station in Warsaw Chopin Airport. At no point, despite my asking, was I ever informed about having to re-check bags I paid $100.00 to check-in. Moreover, at no point was I told that, on my flights from Toronto to Frankfurt, that everything from simple entertainment to food would cost significantly high cost (in Euros) to purchase. Be aware of these issues fellow travelers, and make sure you pay for food and entertainment (ahead of time) and make sure ALL your bags will be on WestJet/Condor planes or they will NOT be transferred!"
Positiv: "Excellent Customer Service"
Negativ: "No healthy snack options"
Positiv: "On time departure, early arrival"
Positiv: "Great atmosphere... entertaining staff, very pleasant."
Positiv: "Everything was great!!"
Positiv: "I forgot sparge photo on the plane and only realized this when i was picking up my checked bag. A crew member was able to get it off the plane and bring it to arrivals for me. I was very thankful."
Negativ: "Seating was tight; I was a little too close for comfort to the passenger on my left."
+ Es war ein angenehmer Flug trotz Verspätung. - Die Toiletten waren gehen Ende des Fluges absolut ekelerregend aufgrund von Unfähigkeit mancher Fluggäste anständig auf die Toilette zu gehen.
Positiv: "Die meisten Crew Mitglieder waren nett"
Negativ: "2-4-2 Sitzreihen"
Positiv: "The flight was okay."
Negativ: "- I had to pay extra for lunch and (alcoholic) drinks. - The pasta was overpriced and tasted like nothing - At the destination we had to wait for 35mins in the plane, before we could get out."
Negativ: "Seats were so uncomfortable!but love the direct flight eben though it was almost 2 hrs late"
Negativ: "Not enough space. Tv was glitchy. Seat uncomfortable."
Positiv: "The crew was amazing. The economic seat (I always prefer to select aisle seat) was OK for me."
Negativ: "I often prefer to take Air Canada flight for the departure to any international cities, because it hardly happened to have any cancelled AC flights during my Air flight dates in my past years trips."
Positiv: "Amazing crew and Ground staff. Check in and bag check in was really smooth and fast."
Negativ: "Maybe some more options of snacks. In flight entertainment was not working so can’t say much about it."
Positiv: "The set was super comfortable"
Negativ: "Everything was excellent"
Positiv: "The crew was very nice and helpful"
Negativ: "I got charged for bags from Fort Lauderdale to Toronto than Toronto to Halifax"
Negativ: "On the choice of audio entertainment, it uses Stingray which, just like radio broadcast for each category with no choice of album for personal preference, kind of disappointed. I like the previous menu with album choices."
Positiv: "Guter Service"
Positiv: "Very good service"
Negativ: "Rough air"
Negativ: "fragte man sich leider auf diesem Flug. Keine Monitore mit den Infos zum Flug (wo sind wir, wie lange dauert es noch, etc...) Kannte ich so noch nicht. Bordpersonal war sagen wir mal nicht unfreundlich, mehr aber auch nicht. Höflich, zuvorkommend und aufmerksam ist anders. Der Flug ging von Berlin. Es lag also auf der Hand, dass sehr viele Fluggäste deutsch als ihre Muttersprache haben. Das störte die Flugbegleiterin aber nicht. Sie sprach ein so schnelles und undeutliches Englisch, dass sie nicht bis gar nicht zu verstehen war."
Positiv: "New plane in the excellent condition. Leg room in economy not bad. Crew friendly and efficient. Boarding worked well."
Negativ: "The main meal was pretty dreadful. Grilled chicken with what I think was mashed potato, but it was difficult to be sure. Watery and tasteless. Accompanied bizarrely by a tomato sauce (which did taste of something). Hard to identify the ethnicity."
Positiv: "Lots of legroom. Great free movies."
Negativ: "No free snacks. You had to pay for headphones."
Positiv: "Boarding very fast"
Negativ: "Very small plane. No snacks offered."
Negativ: "I fly 5+ times a year and I always have to take Air Canada. It isn't by choice. There is ALWAYS a delay or something is broken or the inbound plan had an issue etc. It could be a lot worse but it could be a hell of a lot better."
Negativ: "Extremely cold on the plane"
Positiv: "The entire boarding process, takeoff, staff were all good."
Negativ: "The entertainment system went down mid flight and I was unable to finish watching a show. Not happy about this."
Positiv: "Alles gut, wie erwartet. Cool, dass Internet im Angebot war."
Negativ: "Klar, die Flieger werden immer enger... aber für die Umwelt ist es schon besser, wenn dafür weniger Flieger starten also beklage ich mich auch nicht so sehr drüber. Am Besten wäre es, wenn es mehr Züge gäbe für solche kurze Strecken."
Negativ: "The fact air canada booted me and my year and a half year old off the plane. They gave me no compensation for the fact that they did this. So not impressed I never made it to Montreal"
Positiv: "No food given. Flight was delayed on the way there because a crew member called in sick -- making me miss part of my work conference. No entertainment on the way back to NL."
Negativ: "Would have preferred Westjet but they do not offer a flight from NL to PEI."
Negativ: "Delayed for almost 2hrs"
Positiv: "Quick easy flight. Everything went smoothly."
Positiv: "Kept us up to date and gave us a lunch voucher."
Negativ: "We had a 4 hr weight in St John's"
Positiv: "Das Boarding und die Durchführung waren super. Das Personal sprach Französisch. Nicht alles wurde auf Englisch wiederholt. Getränke wurden NUR EIN MAL angeboten. Essen hat Geld gekostet - nicht gut. United Airlines hat zwar auch essen Gegen Geld angeboten, aber hat mindestens 3 Mal von sich auch Getränke angeboten. Also von sich aus."
Negativ: "Kaum Beinfreiheit. Essen nur gehen Geld."
Positiv: "No wasted time, they load you up and get you where you want to be."
Negativ: "Be sure to gate check anything larger than a small backpack or purse. There is little room on board for carry-on's"
Negativ: "Delayed, missed connection"
Positiv: "This was a boring flight which is a good thing, no drama, no mechanical problems, no weather problems. More leg room than an overseas flight."
Negativ: "There was some confusion during boarding."
Positiv: "Boarding was very well-organised ands clearly explained."
Negativ: "USB socket broken and non-functioning. Plastic fork snapped and shed tines. A truly ghastly movie selection."
Positiv: "Nothing other than the staff is nice."
Negativ: "Nothing stands out about this flight."
Negativ: "See above. I didn't fly as I had scheduled."
Negativ: "Nothing stands out"
Negativ: "Booked 2+ months in advance and didn't get a flight on Easter weekend"
Positiv: "Great fast flight"
Negativ: "flight was cancelled and I was offered a flight through Montreal with Long connections so I cancelled and flew the next day again through Montreal but with better connections"
Negativ: "Entertainment system is outdated and not functional"
Positiv: "Dieser kurze Flug verlief schnell und komfortabel. Es gab Internetzugang am Board, der gut funktionierte."
Positiv: "Once we got underway it was fine."
Negativ: "6 hrs delay! The flight delays were mostly unannounced and we were sent from gate to gate multiple times without explanation of what was happening. We arrived at 3am."
Positiv: "Delayed and still on time overall great experience"
Positiv: "der sessel ist wie ein altes economy-sessel, das essen ist schöner angerichtet, und es gibt mehr platz"
Negativ: "leider ist die standard-economy-klasse viel enger geworden"
Positiv: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Negativ: "My tv screen was not working, so I had no entertainment for the ride."
Negativ: "From Toronto to London the price they charge is about the same as I pay from Toronto to Dubai using emirate or ettihad which is twice the distance. Toronto to London is a busy route so why charge such a high fare? Food. Be prepared for food that comes straight out of a cafeteria's frozen items. Entertainment. Slightly better than Turkish airline's which isn't an achievement by any means. Old aircrafts which don't have air vents. They really don't offer anything to you except charge you a lot for the busiest routes in the world. Try other airlines."
Positiv: "I really like how friendly the flight staff was. The women and men were always smiling and courteous! They loaded the plane quickly and easily all while being helpful and smiling. On my flight from Moncton to Montreal I needed several vomit bags just in case some of my cousins wedding drinks wanted to come up. The stewardess quickly grabbed several for me and was very kind. Luckily nothing came up and I felt great at the end of the flight!"
Negativ: "I don't fly as often as used to, but I've noticed that flight services have definitely gone down hill. Flying Air Canada was refreshing, so I don't have anything negative to say except I really wish I'd won tickets for my family and I back to Canada on Air Canada, hahaha!"
Positiv: "Personnel were friendly aircraft was clean"
Negativ: "Our entertainment system was broken."
Negativ: "Flight was 1 hour late departing."
Positiv: "Space between seats in economy class"
