Pros: "The seats were so comfortable"
Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"
Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."
Pros: "Terrific hot breakfast in bus. class"

Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "No overbooking next time!"
Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Cons: "Head support for 6 feet plus people on seats would be good"
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."

Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."
Pros: "Everything was great! Crew incredible. They acknowledged my wife’s birthday and made her feel special. Food was ultra salubrious. Loved the big screen monitor."
Cons: "No complaints about anything."
Pros: "Travel on Crostian Airlines did not pappen. KLM flight to Munich was cancelled and I was rescheduled on Air Setbia to Belgrade, the Split."
Cons: "That it didn’t happen."
Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."
Pros: "The staff were professional and friendly The food was very good and plentiful The inflight entertainment has lots of choices The bathrooms remained clean All in stark contrast with BA with who I did the same flight 2 weeks ago and all the above points were very poor"
Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."
Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."

Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"
Pros: "Good multi media access and content"
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
Pros: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food."
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
Pros: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"
Cons: "Fewer entertainment options than the delta flight. I got excited with that first flight."
Pros: "Everything was nice."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "There wasn’t much to like. One of the crew members stood out by being helpful; his colleagues were bureaucratic and disengaged."
Cons: "This was a BA flight. Food in T3 in toronto was a disgrace, and the whole lounge experience was poor. The sleeping arrangements in business class had no privacy; the food onboard was mediocre. The Air CANADA flight on the same route is far better in every respect."
Pros: "I liked the window seat."
Cons: "They didn’t talk much about the landing card."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Pros: "Speed boarding process."
Cons: "No entertainment system on a 3 hour flight..."
Pros: "Service, staff, food and beverages all excellent"
Cons: "Seat was just a little hard when lying on my side"
Pros: "Movie choices were good."
Cons: "It was cold and very little leg room. Food was barely warm"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time Crue"
Cons: "Sales on board"
Pros: "I LOVED my stewardist. This man was so incredibly kind to me and the service he gave me had me questioning if it's usually appropriate to tip them. I wish I knew this mans name so I could rave about him but I unfortunately didn't catch it."
Cons: "Let me start out by saying this was my first transcontinental, longer than 2hour flight...I am extremely upset that I paid the extra money to choose my seat and when booking I chose that I wanted a window seat, well I ended up smack in the middle of the plane with a person on each side of me so I wasn't even able to sleep the entire 7 hour 9p-9am flight. Also when I attempted to check in 24hours prior in order to make sure I got a seat id be happy with it said that it wasn't available for my flight so I couldn't check in and I couldn't chose a seat but regardless I still should've gotten the seat I wanted bc of my preferences at booking. Don't pay the extra to ensure your seat it's a total rip off"
Pros: "The crew were lovely, as were the people checking us in at the airport!"
Cons: "We waited 3 hours to fix a water problem on the tarmack and were seated in the middle of a large group of school kids. Would have been happier without those 2 elements."
Pros: "Pretty quick to get on board, entertainment was great, seat comfort was good., wifi and prices were stupidly over priced and slow.,"
Cons: "American Airlines as usual has overly priced non-working wifi on a 10.5 hour trip.. He food was ok at best.."
Pros: "The crew were trying to help and accommodate the bad situation."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online 24 hours ahead. When called Finnair on the phone, they couldn't check us in, told us we have to check in at counter, by then all good seats were taken and I couldn't sit next to my husband, and this is our honeymoon trip. It's a full flight and All upgrades were booked by then so couldn't even upgrade to business class. Requested a gluten free meal, no crew can figure out it that meal was on board (not in system nor on paper list), so at the end no food for me. I have been dying BA for last five years and this had to be the worst BA flight I have taken, absolute chaos at the check in counter and no organization. One BA counter agent Alexa tried to help but it is just too late. I expected more from BA."
Pros: "Direct from San Diego to Heathrow."
Cons: "The seats are very small--and I am a small woman--so the flight felt cramped. The food was just ordinary airline food--little taste. Coffee served essentially black--no offer of milk or cream. Take it or leave it-- Crew helpful if you could flag someone down. Most irritating: could not check in online for some unexplained reason and required to arrive two hours early. BA does no subscribe to TSA so spent time in a line unnecessarily. AND, then the crew arrived over an hour late so the flight left at least an hour late. The crew explained that their downtown bus did not arrive and they could not arrange one. Given the close proximity to the airport, this should have been a 10 minute cab ride."
Cons: "Experienced very rude cabin crew"
Pros: "Overall a great flight."
Cons: "Breakfast not their best meal. No tea or coffee served, very disappointing."
Pros: "Having read horror stories online about booking with Kayak's partner Justfly, I was prepared for the worst (last-minute cancellations, partial refunds, all-around crummy service). Actually, my Finnair flight was great - it was operated by BA, so it was a nice new double-decker Airbus plane. It was maybe 3/4ths full, so I nearly had a row to myself - shoutout to the jerk who decided he was entitled to the aisle seat. The flight was smooth and easy and best of all, it cost a fraction of what the BA price for a one-way from SFO to LHR cost."
Cons: "The food on BA continues to be meh, but what most people don't realize is that ALL airline food is meh, because your tastebuds don't work properly 30k feet in the air (it's a scientific fact)."
Pros: "Travelled on B A Air Bus. I found it to be comfortable compared to previous flights operated by other airlines. Crew was excellent Overall it was a very good experience."
Cons: "The food - well it's airline food - ok but nothing exceptional."
Pros: "My son and I requested gluten free meals when we reserved our tickets. When the meal was being served the crew had NO record of our meals needing to be gluten free. So we had to get one of the meals that was being offered. This was unfortunate and they made no other attempts to rectify the situation. Also, many TV monitors were malfunctioning, including mine which did not have clear sound. It was jumbled and not even clear enough to make out words in a movie or song on the radio channels. Thank you, Emily Snyder"
Pros: "As always, BA did an excellent job with my evening flight from JFK to LHR. They were prompt, efficient and very helpful and although my flight was quite full, we left on time and had no issues in the air. I was very pleased with their service and especially as I paid such a low fare through Finn Air, I can't complain. This was a great option to utilise, rather than paying BA's more expensive fares. I would definitely go through this way again."
Pros: "The staff was friendly, the food was good, and the entertainment system worked perfectly."
Cons: "The gentlemen in front of me kept his seat reclined through the whole trip, making my space quite cramped. I know this can't be helped, but it does make the space a bit claustrophobic."
Cons: "When I arrived to board my flight I was highly unsatisfied with the excessive charges I received for my luggage that was overweight (only by 7 pounds). I was not only charged an additional $100 for my second checked bag, but I was also charged $200 for the extra weight. As a college student traveling abroad for 6 months, I did not expect to be bombarded with these fees at the beginning of my journey. Due to this experience, I would like to have been notified ahead of time of the expected charges as it made me uneasy before a long flight."
Pros: "planned time of departure Fare potential for getting 5 seats so I could get a good nights sleep"
Cons: "Plane left 3 1/2 hours late due to a mysterious mechanical problem that caused them to taxi it away from the gate more than once. Relatively little communication from American whose flight it was. Scheduled departure 10 PM. Actual departure 1:30 AM I reserved a center aisle seat in a row that was completely empty a day or two before departure, hoping to get the whole row. Didn't work out. Just before we closed the doors a couple arrived at the row and took up three of the seats. Darn it. But I still got a good nights sleep. Wish there was an option to check N/A on several of the options above. I didn't speak to a crew member. I didn't eat or drink anything. I never turned on the entertainment system."
Cons: "There was a very poor selection of movies to watch:( Last tim ei flew AA, and there was an absolutely huge choice . . . Would love to see that improved . . I think you have to cater for all tastes . . . and that definitely was not the case on my flight"
Cons: "For an international flight I have never seen such small seats, the entertainment was awful. My tv was in black and white. I didn't even want to try the food as looked bad."
Pros: "For once the seats have enough space. Airlines think we are cattle and that they can pack as much as possible every airplane. For once I was glad to have a confortable experience."
Cons: "Our bag was not checked through to our final destination and was delivered a day later."
Pros: "Entertainment choices were good."
Cons: "The flight attendants were noisy, walking back and forth, so it was hard to rest, more like stomping. Was not pleased with flight attendant who served me, was kinda cocky and not friendly, which spoiled the customer service experience. Not enough leg room, cramped. Wish they had decaf tea. Other than that we arrived safely, so I'm very appreciative."
Pros: "Good leg room."
Cons: "I paid an extra $90 to pick this seat. On the website it looked like an exit row seat with lots of room. However I couldn't really move out of my seat without climbing over others. It was a waste of $90."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with plenty of room."
Cons: "Plane was broken and we had to wait 3 1/2 hours to get a new plane. Crew kept awkwardly mentioning during every announcement that the delay wasn't their fault... My husband's entertainment screen was broken and flickering so much that all shows/films were completely unwatchable. My screen began flickering 1/2way through a film."
Cons: "Trying to get through airport security was an unorganized clown show with them herding groups of passengers back and forth between airport terminals resulting in many people almost missing their flights because the lines just weren't moving. Once on the airplane, the international flight had TVs in the ceiling in the row playing one in-flight movie (what is this 1995?). American is such a terrible airline. The old US airways, Lufthansa, and British Airways, are way better international flights every time I've flown with them. Personal entertainment at your seat for each flight (i thought this was standard on all international flights in the past like 10 years) and more food and drinks throughout the flight."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Ancient aircraft."
Pros: "British Airways has greatly improved their customer service, the flight attendants (usually a bit gruff) were instead very kind and helpful to myself and all the passengers I saw them interact with. It really makes the flight experience better."
Pros: "Maybe they should call these flights "Byzantine Airways". Finnair doesn't fly Boston to London, so my Finnair flight was on British Airways, but I did it that way because BA wanted more money that day. As a flight, it was OK. I don't think I have much to say about Finnair."
Pros: "Despite the turbulence the pilot did his best and we had as solid of a ride as possible. Seats were very comfortable and flight was on time, couldn't ask for anything more!"
Cons: "There was a terrible smell; food and drinks were served two hours after the flight started, it was dirty, cold and cramped. The whole experience was traumatising!"
Pros: "The configuration of the seats are really awkward. Seems very interesting at a glance, but not so nice when you have to sit in it for 10 hours. The business class seats are very narrow. I'm pretty petite so it was okay for me, but I think an average or bigger than average person would have a hard time turning at all while the seat is in lie flat position. I had a window seat which gives you more privacy as long as you have the divider up between you and the passenger next to you. You are really arm length away from each other though. And! You can't have the divider down the entire time because they serve your meals by passing it over to you across your neighbor through the divider. The divider is also required to be down during taxi, take off and landing. So, I'd imagine it to be very awkward if you're sitting next to a total stranger. You also have to straddle over someone's legs if you want to get out of your seat to the bathroom if you have window seats."
Cons: "I booked the finnair flight because it was direct and charged $60 for additional bags to check in. For me this was really important since I was moving countries so I needed to check in multiple bags. But since this was in partnership with British Airways, I was charged $90 instead of $30. This was not mentioned or made clear before I made my purchase, if i buy a finnair flight then I should be charged finnair prices on baggage. If not, this should have been made clear before hand so I could have weighed my flight options. I hope you are able to provide a resolution."
Cons: "The upgrade to World Traveler Plus was $330.00 and worthless. They assured me Business Class food service. NOT TRUE. You get the usual coach class prison-type food. Non-existent flight crew service (I got one mini can of Coke the entire flight). Cramped seat next to noisy bathroom. Whole experience was bad."
Pros: "Good food - two meals at just the right time."
Cons: "I regularly fly between Chicago and London and dread having to get on AA90. The planes are ridiculously old with barely any legroom and no seat-back entertainment. On this occasion, my friend sitting next to me, who is 5'10" had his knees right up against the seat in front. When the passengers in front reclined it was almost impossible to get comfortable. There is no seat-back entertainment. For some this may not be a big deal, what with iPads and other devices, but it speaks to AA's failure to consider it's customers comfort and ease on long-haul flights."
Cons: "When I got to Phl I missed my connection to London. No one seemed to care that I needed to be in England by the 18th. They kept retorting me to arrive in England on the 19th. I told them multiple times Id be flexible and go to any city in the UK just for them to get me there on the 18th. The First person I talked to said it was impossible. So I called again and talked to another person and all of a sudden it was possible. The worst part was they sent me to Boston after that I didn't get to Boston until 1:50 am and they did not compensate with hotel or anything while my flight to London was not until 8:00 am the next morning. So I spent the night in the airport. Oh and then when I finally got to London, my bag is lost and they told me I'd have it by tomorrow and I still do not have my bag and have called and they said they can't tell me anything."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and joyful. Food wasn't too bad for airplane food! :-)"
Cons: "I find it appalling that there is a charge for seat selection. Please add 10 cents to the price of a ticket and do away with the seat charge. It would buy you loyality."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment system had a few issues."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful cabin crew. Excellent boarding procedures. The food wasn't awful. Everyone seemed relaxed and upbeat...maybe because the holidays are approaching."
Cons: "The rolls were ice cold, and the butter was not real butter. My husband found the seats cramped, and little foot room. I'm 5'2" and they were ok for me. The child behind me screamed and then projectile vomited for the last half hour of the flight, which can't be laid at BS's door. Many people were still on their cell phones and laptops during the whole takeoff, despite multiple announcements. I would have kicked them off."
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "There was a lack of air and no possibility for individual airing your seat, during our flight we had to stand in the back because we were almost passing out of overheating 30 Celsius plus heat in our row. We asked for a cooler temperature and only the last 20 minutes it started cooling but then to ice cold. My audio was not working properly, at max it was still unclear. We have had better flight experiences."
Pros: "Very friendly plenty of room on a 90% full flight."
Cons: "Wished they had offered water during the flight in addition to two times drinks service was offered"
Pros: "The 10 1/2 hour flight ended up only taking less than 9 hours since we had the wind in our favor. I loved all of the free movie selections and the service was wonderful. Great experience."
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Great staff on BA, very helpful and friendly, even going above and beyond to find me a drink I had requested. I'm not a frequent traveller these days and I enjoyed the variety of entertainment available. Flight was a few minutes early, which was a bonus."
Cons: "My headset wasn't working, luckily I had my own nearby and was able to use those."
Cons: "Tiny seats. Wouldn't let me pay for an upgrade. Last time I ever use kayak"
Pros: "Good Entertainment, and I had an empty seat next to me. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "My luggage was lost when I got to Paris and the staff at the ticket booth in Denver were not aware that my final destination was Paris."
Pros: "Great flight"
Poor communication from boarding staff, airport staff not a clue. Communication on board was un decipherable and airline lost baggage.
4 flights in 3 weeks between arrival and departure and all flights delayed about 5 to 6 hours ! What’s going on with AF ?! Not a low cost and you paid for that service !?!? Not anymore
Pros: "I like the crew and their service, the food was amazing speacially the vanilla cheese cake desert was on point, loved it. I loved the “my flight “interaction on the screen and the different view of the plane, cockpit view, left, right etc.. amazing feature."
Cons: "The seat could have been much better as far as reclining and space. Overall I loved the flight."
Pros: "The seat was really comfortable and I was able to sleep the whole flight with no disturbance"
Pros: "Crew were very good."
Cons: "No vegan food available."
Cons: "The conditions were very cramped. The entertainment system was quite old and had very little selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working all together. I called for assistance from my seat a couple of times, but nobody came."
Cons: "tout est à revoir !"
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in. Because I had a connecting flight to New York in London, the check in caused many problems...and everything inside soaking wet"
Pros: "It was very comfortable and pleasant."
Cons: "Could be a little better the service, the dinner was late"
Cons: "I’m not sure that short-hop flights should serve solid food. The quality invariably disappoints. Otherwise, all is good with this flight."
Pros: "Great newer plane, great service!"
Cons: "The craft is a bit old. Harsh landing."
Pros: "Not being charged for my first bag of luggage"
Cons: "There was no entertainment and the food could be better"
Pros: "Entire trip was easy and comfortable."
Pros: "Red wine was excellent"
Cons: "Bright lights on throughout flight, would have been nice to dim lights for late night flight so passengers could rest"
Pros: "great food, entertainment and seat comfort"
Pros: "Great seat. Comfortable. Quick boarding."
Cons: "Asked flight attendant to wake me for breakfast....forgot. Long wait for bathroom,"
Pros: "The crew were polite and friendly"
Cons: "Everything was incredibly poor. Flight was delayed, entertainment was outdated and the airport staff were rude."
Pros: "We were a little delayed, so I read my book. Not for long though as I was really tired after my flight from Los Angeles. I fell asleep right after take-off and didn't wake until we landed. Best way to fly :-)"
Cons: "Very little legroom for a 6'1" guy. Would have liked a bit more space, but I guess I was too tired to let it bug me."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."
Pros: "Timely and smooth teansit."
Cons: "Food has a way to go to be appetising."
Pros: "Efficient and smooth flight. Service was great and flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "Missed flight due to lack of direction, last minute gate change and they shut door in our face after telling us they were holding plane"
Cons: "Plane left more than 40 minutes late with no explanation or apology."
Cons: "I did not like that i was in the bulkhead and there was not sufficient overhead storage for us. The bin was only big enough for 1 backpack. 2 of the 3 of us in that row had to go 2 rows back to store our luggage. This is very inconvenient when deboarding because I have to wait for many others to pass before I get a chance to walk towards the back of the plane to get my luggage."
Pros: "The airplane was modern, and the crew very good. Nice, service oriented and in general trying to make the flight experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The flight was very late. I lost my connection. My bag was lost and unable to recover it so far (after more than 24 hours). About to initiate the next leg of the trip with no clothes or any idea if my luggage will be recovered."
Pros: "Plus seat was good. On board crew was nice."
Cons: "Another Air France company, with their motto: We Don't Care. Ground staff was rude, no good food onboard and have to pay for it. Entertainment is your device, but you can't download the app to use it."
Pros: "Very poor sound quality on the earphones. Made it very difficult to watch a movie and almost impossible to listen to music."
Pros: "What’s not to like!"
Pros: "Everything was very prefect and would love to fly again."
Pros: "Good cabin, but very conjugated :|"
Cons: "Too much of hassle checking in as the airlines partners with a couple of other airlines like Jet Airways, WestJet & Aircanada. The food was just okay and the cabin crew refused to serve extra butter. When you are serving extra bread, make sure you serve the butter as well. How could someone eat bread by itself?"
Pros: "The crew was Nice onboard But in the AirPort No Good at all.."
Cons: "People in CDG AirPort Seen so Rude or stressfull, Well also a flight almost 3 hours with out entreteiment .. boring .."
Pros: "Flight was only 50% full. Room to spread out."
Cons: "Leg room cramp. Flight arrived late as a result missed connection home."
Pros: "General air of professionalism is reassuring"
Cons: "Food, crew appear rushed"
Cons: "Disappointed to get delayed due to control tower issues at CdG. Landed more than 30 mins late in London"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "It was one problem after another during check in. And it was difficult to find help in English so I couldn't really tell what was going on. In the end I was tucking to get checked in because they were insisting I use a kiosk but I was telling them that the kiosk said to see an attendee. It was not efficient and I felt like a burden asking for help when there was nothing else I could do on my own."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pros: "leg space in plane"
Cons: "The delay in the flight without even informing us of the reasons. Changing the boarding gates twice, and no options in the meal."
Pros: "Chicako Párizs szuper , udvarias személyzet pontos érkezés."
Pros: "Traveled fron SFO to CDG on AF in business class on an A 380. Lounge in SFO was smallish and not many choices in the food bar. Boarding was smooth. my second ride on A 380 in business and this trip reminded me quickly why I did not care for the A 380 on my previous trip. It is a huge plane with a huge sized business class which makes the cost less worth it compared to a Boeing. The crew were extremely helpful and caring. The food was acceptable. The seats on the plane were not comfortable in the lying position. Took a cab to our hotel in Paris (1st Arr) for a flat 50 euros. No meters."
Cons: "Arriving in CDG and facing a slow immigration with the passengers of this huge plane. I didn't care for the baggage delivery system. We were waiting for an hour only to realize that the arrival port for our luggage was changed."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Not enough food"
Pros: "Free drinks and snack!"
Pros: "I like that they still feed you and provide alcohol for free, even on a 40 min flight (unlike BA)."
Cons: "At one point during the flight I took a video out of my window with my camera, a member of the cabin crew barked at me in French. In bewilderment I asked her in English to repeat herself and she sarcastically repeated what she had said, in French, I asked for her to speak in English (which she had done to me previously on this Paris to London flight) yet again she scolded me in French. I was left absolutely none the wiser and it left a bad taste in my mouth."
Pros: "Loved the movie selection and the food was good too."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."
Pros: "Boarding. Food."
Cons: "My in flight entertainment was broken and that us quite a disadvantage on a 12 hour flight. I was told it was because the airplane was "very old" which whilst it may be true it is not something I particularly want to hear. I was also told that as the flight was full I could only move seats if someone wanted to swap. I'm not sure if the flight attendant was expecting me to stand up and make a public request?!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing - and this was Club Europe"
Cons: "Punctuality (lack of). Comfort (lack of). Seat pitch. Food. Cabin crew service. State of aircraft. Price (premium for a budget service)."
Pros: "I chose British airway relying on safety record depite being comparatively expensive."
Cons: "The outer seat arm was faulty. It couldn’t be folded back, so getting out or in was very difficult. It is certainly risky in case of emergency . I asked the hostess to report it. Nothing complementary offered to passengers .Other reputable airlines do, such as a drink , or chocolate bar ."
Cons: "no free food in a 2h flight??!! thia is a low xoat airline standard!!"
Pros: "Friendly and quick service."
Cons: "Waiting for a space at the terminal."
Cons: "It took FOREVER to get our boarding passes. We did wind up checking our bags, but there was no option to do self check and have boarding passes printed at a kiosk, so everyone had to go through the line and the line was incredibly slow. There were just as many lines for people who had checked in online and just needed to drop their bags - this made no sense to me! There should only have been one line for that and the rest should have been dedicated to getting the rest of the passengers checked in."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food advertised was not available."
Pros: "Very limited in flight entertainment"
Cons: "There was no food provided, so no need to rate the quality of the food that was not there"
Pros: "Two empty seats next to me"
Cons: "1.Cabin staff would not move trolley to allow me to pass to give a gift sitting forward of me for an unreasonably long time. 2. Being accused of being abusive when I complained"
Pros: "It was replacement flight by Qatar Airways. I wish they would replace all BA flights."
Pros: "That the flight only came in 15 minutes late."
Cons: "An old beat up plane in desperate need of renovation especially for a long haul flight. Only one nice flight attendant who tried to help. Others not interested. Terrible seat that I tried to move with no success. Did not eat anything or watch any entertainment. Very unpleasant experience. I have flown this route many times and next time I would fly Swiss through Zurich or Geneva as I have done before."
Pros: "easy boarding, land at T5 which is a very well designed terminal"
Cons: "check is was horrendous. Long queues of people, long wait and not enough people to man the check in counters. Sitting down in my seat my kneeds immediately banged on the seat in front of me. Its clear that this aircraft has less leg space that then usual. And now you have to pay for all food and drink. £9 for a sandwich and G&T."
Pros: "Service levels were high and good humored as usual, cabin was clean and reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "Apart from still objecting to the principle of treating non-Business class customers like the budget airlines, the food selection on European flight leg was ok, but sales system is so slow and laborious that in future I'll probably buy in the departures terminal and carry on board."
Pros: "BA is offering a very mediocre product. All feels safe, clean & curteous, but inferior to Middle Eastern airlines & the likes of SAA & Qantas."
Cons: "The food is really nothing special and has dropped in quality to the quality that you can expect on North American Airlines."
Cons: "the fact I had to 464 pounds robbing b"
Pros: "Fairly clean, on time and staff were very nice."
Cons: "No food or drink anymore! You have to pay to get a budget airline at premium prices."
Cons: "No entertainment! While you have to check in your laptop and iPad!"
Pros: "The flight left on time even though full flight and we had to take a bus to the airplane. Bologna has a separate baggage and ticket check line at the back of the executive lounge. Quick and effective."
Cons: "Everything seemed to go smoothly so no negative comments."
Cons: "The old flight attendants, are entitle, rude, racist (from a flight I encountered from China to America, "One claiming Chinese are so annoying to deal with"."
Pros: "Head rest broken, actually hanging off on 2 threads so it hung down below my shoulder blades, more like a back massager"
Cons: "No entertainment, tv didn't even show flight details. Hideously uncomfortable seat with broken head rest. Staff ate their meals in front of the paying customers."
Pros: "Staff were good"
Cons: "The food and drink are not free anymore"
Cons: "Seating configuration was ridiculous as flight attendants constantly leaning across me with trays and their arms nearly hitting my face. Seat & bed functions didn't work. Privacy screen was a joke!"
Pros: "I was traveling alone with my baby. Everyone was very helpful"
Pros: "Everything was ok. Just OK. Decent meal - if small."
Cons: "Not much space in the cabin. Plane was quite tired. Breakfast, as always, terrible."
Pros: "I'm sure there was something but nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Lack of assistance regarding my missing belongings. Incorrect information relating to landing card to be completed when arriving in London. Stretching over me to pass food etc to passenger sitting facing other direction, and literally millimetres from my face, without any politeness having to do it. Configuration gives no privacy as you look at the passenger next to you. Functions of chair did not work. Pillow was thinner Than a piece of paper. Crew showed no concern."
Pros: "Discreet and attentive customer service"
Cons: "Foot rest did not fully deploy. The remote for IFE was stuck I the cradle"
Cons: "Moved from a reserved window seat to a middle seat so they could add another business class row"
Pros: "Friendly helpful airline staff. Plane slightly late leaving but kept up-to-date."
Pros: "Clear boarding, polite crew and a terrific set of films and TV shows."
Cons: "6ft 2 frame in economy was very tight and aisle seats have little space next to entertainment base stations. Food was acceptable, no more."
Cons: "None of them reminded me of the fact that I need a transit visa for the UK (I mean, isn't it rediculous? I am just staying there for 5 hours). When I called in for cancellation at the airline, they told me to talk to my agent company Cheaptickets. Cheaptickets simply told me that I can't get any money back, and was extremely arrogant and impatient. Later (for a week I was trying to save this ticket by talking to the British Embassy to see if I can get the visa done and they are just "we can't help you") they told me that I can get a refund of like 30 SGD and they promised to send me an e-mail about it. They never ever did. I also tried to change the dates and the handling fee + fair difference was like 1200 SGD (are you joking?) they simply told me, prices fluctuate... Finally I went to the check in counter desperate. The staff even refused to talk to me about my situation because simply, "there is no BA ticket office in Singapore" and told me to call them. I said the office is closed, but they are like, yeah just call them. They swept me off like a moron. Extremely arrogant, impatient, insensitive. I paid 900 SGD for nothing and a whole week of anxiety and regret. I will never take this and I will never use Cheaptickets or Kayak anymore. So bad."
Cons: "Low quality of the food !!!"
Pros: "staff were good"
Cons: "out of date entertainment food"
Pros: "Nice plane. Great movies"
Cons: "Breakfast poor quality. Disorganised boarding"
Pros: "Food was very pleasant Choice of entertainment was good"
Cons: "Compared to the JAL flight crew we had on our connecting flight, the staff were disinterested, not particularly polite and gave the overwhelming sense we were somehow inconveniencing them... Seats and leg room not big enough and giant metal box under the seat did not help. Yes, we could have paid extra for more leg room (I am quite tall) but that doesn't seem right (almost akin to discriminating against tall people). Booked the whole flight with BA including a connecting flight with JAL. Couldn't check-in online for the JAL flight and there was no clear information as to whether our baggage would be automatically transferred or whether we would have to collect (as was the case)."
Pros: "Still love their use of decent reclining seats, and the boarding procedure and cabin crew are generally lovely."
Cons: "£6.50 for an alcoholic drink is a joke. The fact that they had also run out of most mixers (including diet coke) as well as the sandwiches on my return flight to LHR from ATH shows how poor their service is. I was also refused ice for my warm coke zero (since they didn't have any to buy I thought I'd ask for some for the one I had bought in the airport). Shocking!"
Pros: "Usual BA - professional service"
Cons: "I cannot believe you have to pay for your drinks now. The only thing which made BA one of the last remaining "experience" airlines has now made it become like a normal train journey. I'd prefer to pay 10 pounds more in my ticket and still have the impression my drinks, soft or not, are offered."
Pros: "Early departure (relatively small plane) and early arrival. Boarding and departures relatively quick given small plane size. Service was good. Overhead bins were spacious. Plane was relatively new and fairly high-tech. Food was good and selection was great. Cabin crew went out of their way to accommodate our requests."
Cons: "The Dreamliner is quite a noisy and warm plane. Also, cabin crew aren't very specific with meals (e.g. chicken or beef rather than chicken with rice or beef with potatoes). Snack between meals chargeable. Some trouble with the on board entertainment system that was resolved early on. Stroller arrived fairly late."
Pros: "Check-in Ticket printed by BA staff at the airport had the wrong gate number so I was sat in the wrong part of the terminal until I got suspicious and double checked the screens to find my flight had started boarding elsewhere. Entertainment system had a screen from the mobile phone you owned more than a decade ago. Breakfast was a Kellogg's chew bar. Staff onboard were excellent."
Pros: "Good service, lovely,approachable ,gorgeous personality-crew. I"
Pros: "Liked the healthy food and new TV entertainment system."
Cons: "Didn't like that the steward put the spray downwards on the floor before flying. They should spray it upwards. They removed the snacks. I would be prepared to pay an extra £10 for unlimited snacks. They need to clean the toilets every few hours as the flight is 13 hours. By the end of the flight the floor of the toilet was disgusting. The cushion was horrible."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Bus to aircraft Food now restricted to a snack Seats are becoming too tightly packed together"
Pros: "Professional staff. Very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit of stampede"
Pros: "It didn't crash, which is always good."
Cons: "Not enough food for a 2.5 hour flight at dinner time. I ended up really hungry, which is ironic as I'd just left Hungary."
Pros: "seating was comfortable with plenty of leg room boarding was quick"
Cons: "got questioned about my FF status when it is in my profile host crew ignored my request for more ice in the scotch on rocks for a $200 flight chips peanuts for 2.5 hours is not acceptable host crew attitude is we are going to do our absolute basic head rest was lose and thus useless"
Pros: "Flight was on time, staff were friendly and helpful (eg brought me coffee and pastry when I slept through the device)."
Pros: "Usual fantastic standard of service"
Cons: "Shabby baggage reclaim service at LHR with staff ignoring priority baggage"
Pros: "787-9 new aircraft with the total lack of space in economy, my worst transatlantic crossing in thirty years. DVT waiting to happen."
Pros: "Nothing in particularly"
Cons: "Disorganised boarding, people standing to find a seat, upgrades being handed out on a whim. Meal service poor."
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "The tannoy was difficult to hear at the airport, guess that is not the fault of the airline but it made boarding difficult. Stewardess whizzed past when offering duty free shopping on board."
Cons: "I have to request several times for a glass of water. My seat was broken and didn't care about anyone extra needs."
I’m very happy! Very helpful all personals , so happy with service! A++++++! Want fly again! Highly recommended! Thanks for your service!
The BA staff at the rear of the plane were extremely helpful and professional. Very unfortunately for me, I had developed a cough prior to flying, and when a couple of passengers complained they handled the situation very professionally and did not make things in any way awkward for me. Would most certainly recommend BA/Iberia to my friends for future travel.
Cons: "My checked bag did not make it to London, and it’s really affected my short stay which requires a lot of traveling around England."
Cons: "Missed my transfer in London because the plane took too long to unboard and I was unable to make it to the gates of my next flight in time, despite there being over an hour connection time. The flight came in slightly late and passports were re-inspected upon unboarding which wasted a lot of time, and Heathrow is a nightmare of an airport on a good day, which made it very difficult to get where I needed to go."
Cons: "This flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Even with some departure delays we landed on time."
Cons: "The plane could have used some cosmetic detailing. The door to a cabinet in the bathroom would not shut and caused a problem with people being able to close the bathroom door."
Pros: "Arriving ahead of time"
Cons: "Too hot in the plane"
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Arriving at the gate whilst the flight was still boarding, with a boarding pass in my hand, and being told that my seat had been given to someone else because the Airline unilaterally decided that my connecting flight from Bogotá would not arrive in time. Followed by two hours of Iberia staff being surly, not looking me in they eye and doing absolutely nothing about getting me home. I have now been travelling for nearly 30 hours without sleep, am stuck in Madrid with no certainty of when or how I will get home or see my luggage again, and am seriously seriously pissed off. I do accept that things can sometimes go wrong and that it is nobody’s fault. This is definitely somebody’s fault."
Pros: "It was a very busy due to the fact that we,left 40imutes late and Iberia was also late when we left Madrid but they took care of me to make sure I did not miss the connecting flight"
Cons: "The food could be better"
Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "There was no water in business class toilets. The staff are not polite."
Pros: "The screens on a dozen seats just failed a few hours in - engineering issue. And breakfast was a cold pretzel. Food gets let’s generous on BA all the time. The crew were lovely."
Cons: "A 2330 Flight ran significantly late with a passenger delay and then de-icing. The repeated assurances of “a 10 minute or so delay” were obviously not correct. Takeoff close to 0100 was followed by drinks AND then food - my vote would be neither. Please oh please just let us sleep."
Pros: "Heathrow Airport has a lot of stores to keep you occupied"
Cons: "Late notice of where our gate was located. By the time we got the news, we went to our gate and the people were already boarding"
Pros: "Crew was nice and I had a great flight with Iberia on my flight from Chicago to Madrid"
Cons: "I am 6 feet 180 pounds and I had absolutely no legroom was completely stuck in my seat can’t believe that a tourist class seat is this small with no legroom"
Pros: "That I arrived"
Cons: "Iberia flight was delayed by 45 minutes causing me to miss my connection from London to Dublin."
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work and crew wasn't concerned and didn't do anything about it."
Pros: "Airbus 320"
Cons: "Boarding process and pitiful legroom space . Iberia clearly loves showing the privileged few who have paid top dollars to be at the front , that we must be made to wait and struggle to get to our seats .Then, we have to squeeze into a tiny , pitiful space of a seat .....Even Ryanair does better !"
Pros: "They took invalid information from my travel records which resulted in my passport from 2006 being on my ticket for 2017. Aside from not helping me getting on the plane, and or another connection, they proceeded to tell me after the fiasco that they are in no way elligble to refund anyone and are a 3rd party, therefore not liable. $700 and its not there fault. They just pushed all the paperwork"
Cons: "The fact that no one in this company is liable or helpful in tge slightest after they have your money"
Pros: "Flight was safe, aircraft was clean and luckily with enough room under the seat to store carry on bag"
Cons: "The fact that all the passengers boarding in "group 3" were forced to check in their carry-on bags if they did not fit under the seat; and retrieve those at the baggage claim area (not right after exiting the airplane) In my case I was able to store my carryon under the seat in front of me after pleading to the crew and gate members to let me try because of my connecting flights. There is no complimentary food service, even water is charged."
Cons: "I stopped at the Iberia check-in at Barajas in Madrid. They sent me to BA check-in, where I waited 45 minutes to find out that I should be at Iberia check-in. Then, Iberia check-in had to send me to last minute clerk or I would have missed my flight. Last minute check-in ended up being the same place and same clerk I began with."
Cons: "A porter checked our bags at the gate without asking us whether we were traveling beyond London, so the bags were never transferred to the transatlantic flight nor did they arrive in SF. It wasn't necessary to check them because there was plenty of room in the overhead bins when we got on the flight. We immediately asked a flight attendant to help when I realized they might not go through and he said he spoke to someone who caught and tagged the bags to go through, but it still didn't happen. It would have been easier if he had just brought them to us on the plane. Another women's bag was taken with all her baby supplies and bottles in it for a 16-hour travel day. Very frustrating for all of us."
Cons: "Mistake Kayak or its subcontractor made in listing the name of my wife incorrectly. This created a real hassle in getting a boarding pass in her name"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and cabin was clean . There was no entertainment so I gave that question a 3 star not that it was bad."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything I didn’t like"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "The seat pitch was so small my knees were hard against the seat in front of me for 1.5 hours and I was miserable the whole time. To put this in perspective this was the most uncomfortable I have ever been on an airplane. My legs hurt the whole flight. This was the first leg of an expensive international flight and given the price of the 2 legs I should have been upgraded to a more comfortable seat. My flight to Europe on Iberia was excellent. However based on this bad experience I plan to avoid Iberia in the future because they treat their high price paying customers poorly. Peter Valorz Valorzp@yahoo.com."
Pros: "short flight, on time"
Cons: "indifferent crew"
Pros: "Everything abou the airline. The boarding was quick, the flight crew were wonderful, the flight was clean and smooth."
Cons: "Passengers moved their seats all the way back without considering people behind them. Very small leg room."
Cons: "There was no complimentary water or beverages"
Cons: "Very pleased with overall service and hospitality"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Check in was terrible, did no allow online and on the desk a lot of misinformation which sent me to different desks for check in. Personnel Needs training!!l"
Pros: "Nothing stood out."
Cons: "Late. Ineffective boarding - announcement said we would board by row, but actual boarding was by mass crowding, with no attempt by crew to improve matters. No recognition of dwindling baggage storage space meant that I had to cram my suitcase under the seat, and spend the 2.5 hour flight with my legs jammed against it."
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft was really hot, I was sweating in my seat... I did not receive any complementary drinks or snacks."
Pros: "Movies, no delays"
Cons: "Luggage was not documented correctly to my final destination by Iberia"
Cons: "Very limited room to move. Rather impersonal"
Pros: "Comfortable flights & on time"
Cons: "Service, flight crew seemed to busy chatting instead of serving."
Pros: "Flight attendant didnt help to pup up my luggage; even water was not free"
Pros: "The ease at putting my luggage in.."
Cons: "The prices of the food and drinks!! Ripped off!!"
Pros: "Standard EU flight, on time"
Cons: "Had to buy food and the sandwiches were soggy. Wouldn't accept credit cards at first, staff tried to push cash payment until finally getting a different credit card readee that worked."
Pros: "Everything was delightful, definitely my best ever flight!"
Pros: "The flight overall was very comfortable and the crew were very accommodating and attentive."
Cons: "About halfway through the flight got diverted to drop off a critically ill passenger, so instead of it being an 11 hour flight, it was a 16.5 hour flight. Not anyone's fault, but still incredibly inconvenient."
Pros: "The crew was fabulous! And the ride was on time and had plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the seats were very tight in the economy class. We were packed like cattle. I know these were the "cheap" seats but for almost $1500 I would hope for a bit more comfort."
Cons: "Kept us waiting for five hours"
Cons: "There was bad weather which understandably caused delays, however the communication during this eventual 16 hour delay was horrendous. We were told for the first two hours that we would be delayed each hour and then they would make a decision to delay another hour. This went on for 4 hours (the last two hours of which we did not receive any updates). The flight was originally scheduled to leave at 8:10. At 12:30am we were told our plane was at the gate and being prepared for us to board and the agent giving announcements said we were "guaranteed to leave TONIGHT". At 1am we were told that unfortunately the plane got to the gate just a bit too late and not the crew are not legally allowed to fly and the flight would be pushed back until 8am. At the time, I thought 7 hours was strange and I'd assume the crew would need more like 8-10 hours to rest. Unfortunately because we were told so late, all hotels were booked up. I live in NYC and would've gone home for the night however because we needed to be back by 6am (what the agent suggested), there seemed no point in leaving. We were not provided with any pillows or blankets until 4 in the morning. At 6am the next morning, we were told the crew needed "more rest time" and that our new departure time would be 9:30. How is it that the crew now needs more time? Shouldn't that have been figured out at 1am? Before we board, one of the agents thinks they will "lighten the mood" with the following comment - "Who would've thought a little bad weather would've caused this?" Absolutely not a time for jokes and people were very angry. We finally board for what we think is finally a 9:30am take off. No - now two new issues - 1, the co pilot is late (LATE? how can you be late when a flight has been delayed 16 hours) and 2, they needed to remove package from the plane for people who were no longer taking this flight. In the end, we took off around 11:30am which messed up a lot of peoples connecting flights, pick ups at the airport, etc. I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Guests were boarded quickly. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was tasteless and bland. Crew was not very attentive."
Cons: "The seat did not recline, a bit ridiculous for a plane that size"
Pros: "Best transatlantic flight for a long time. More legroom quiet and delays were communicated well"
Cons: "Would have liked another couple rounds of water"
Cons: "You get on a flight and you can't even get water without paying for it. How cheap can you get. I got better service from Ryan Air."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "No food or drink offered except for if the customer pays for them, very poor idea."
Cons: "not enough leg room. and i have to point out that I am a petite 110 lbs, 5'2" woman. although the flight is short, a complimentary snack and drink would have been nice. instead, you had to pay for anything you wanted. prices on top of that, were exaggerated. very disappointing."
Pros: "I requested special assistance (wheelchair) at the last minute, no problem. Plane left on time and arrived early. Fodder was OK, no great. Complimentary wine on the international flight I'd appreciated! Staff very friendly and efficient. Nice job, American Airlines!"
Cons: "Didn't have individual TV screens, not really a biggie, but it is nice when that I'd available."
Pros: "Great flight attendants."
Cons: "Plane needs wi fi and USB ports. It was a dinosaur ! Cramped seating. Expensive!"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "VERY cramped"
