Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "They are great at service and care of their passengers. Their staff always go out of their way to make sure of comfort. Loganair seems one of the few to still give a beverage and a snack with purchase of ticket (wonderful). I am super thankful of well trained staff and their knowledge on luggage and sizing on the smaller planes especially when traveling to and from larger planes. I never had any issues with being able to take my backpack on or being asked to check it as it carried my laptop & wallet...unlike other airlines of similar size running to & from SYY."
Cons: "That I could not find any Tunnocks Cream Wafers in a retail store to purchase after only the caramel wafers."
Pros: "Great service. Good food and drinks."
Pros: "great airport with great efficiency (Glasgow) wonderfully polite and friendly ticket agent"

Pros: "The staff was reasonably pleasant"
Cons: "The flight was four hours late. There were no announcements so passengers waited in a cold, damp terminal area where there was active construction. The peopeller plane was noisy and there was no storage. They had to check my small bag and then left it on the wet tarmac where my clothes were stained. FLybe is notoriously bad. They certainly lived up to their reputation"

Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"

Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"

Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."

Cons: "seats on Jet air flight are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."
Pros: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."
Cons: "I wasn't sitting next to my partner and we sat on the Tarmac for 45 minutes after the flight was already delayed by 30 minutes."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew professional, food and drinks good and kept coming. I learnt Dutch on the in-flight entertainment system. I was in a good mood talking to another passenger about his new luggage system. This mood was kept and not taken away on the flight."
Cons: "Would be nice if there was wifi on board"
Pros: "That we got home safe"
Cons: "It wasnt a BA plane! Food, staff and entertainment all not really up to scratch"
Pros: "Early departure and early arrival. Everyone was very friendly."
Cons: "We had to wait for staff to come and check in baggage."
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable, plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Food trays left for 45 mins. This was premium economy Check in took forever even though I checked in 3 hours before departure. Didn't seem to be any staff near self serve check in screens to advise passengers."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats are tight,"
Cons: "Seats are cramped. Also I was sitting on the aisle seat and the food trolley hit my elbow so there isnt much space for it to go down the aisle"
Pros: "Gate was super close to the lounge."
Cons: "The security check at the gate requires one to leave the comfort of the lounge early incase of queues and then wait in an over crowded lounge with the other passengers (so the fact you are business/first or have one world status does little to ease the burden of boarding. The lounge also did not offer red eye passengers a meal and the on board meal service is slow (so if you are hungry it eats into precious sleeping time). The breakfast wakeup was also disappointing. My meal of choice was not available and the whole process was rushed like a fast food restaurant. Overall I am disappointed by the club world offering on this route and would not pay for it again unless intended to get on and just sleep for the entire journey."
Pros: "seat was not comfortable as it was economy. staff was decent."
Cons: "friendlier staff, better food options"
Cons: "Nothing different from budget airlines nowadays apart from high price of flight, which is what it is all about really. Felt like a Ryanair flight for 4 or 5 times the price. Could have been SOMETHING complimentary to justify price."
Pros: "There were lots of options for inflight entertainment"
Cons: "The seats are very squished together in economy class. I was very disappointed. I always ride economy but this flight (airline, crew, as accommodations) felt like a “cattle car”. The crew was professional but not friendly, warm, or welcoming. The leg room was limited - quite disappointed."
Cons: "We actually did not go directly to Marseille, but due to a delay, we missed our initial connection and had to take a flight from London to Frankfurt and then from Frankfurt to Marseille. The total trip was 24 hours long and exhausting."
Cons: "When we boarded the plane it was a bot chaotic, quite a few people were sitting in the wrong seats (including someone sitting in mine). There was also a delay in departing because of weather (which isnt the airlines fault) but maybe a complimentary bottle of water would have been nice."
Cons: "Feeling like one of many cattle funnelled through an already over-capacity system."
Pros: "I got up to use the toilet after we were allowed to leave our seats then the next thing I knew we were getting ready to land! Qiuck journey amazing!"
Cons: "The quickness of the journey"

Pros: "The flight staffs were awesome"
Cons: "No USB port on the plane"
Pros: "Great to sit in upper deck"
Pros: "Crew did a nice job. Enjoyed Best of British movies. Food was not great but was OK."
Cons: "Space around seating was substandard. If person in front reclines their seat, then you are trapped for the duration of the flight. Would be good if passengers were requested to put their chair backs forward during meal time."
Cons: "paid for reserved upgraded seats - didn’t get them, no help at airport, have to email for refund. Not even water or coffee on plane. BA deserves to go out of business"
Cons: "Food, but surprised that they served anything!"
Pros: "everyone was very nice-thank you"
Pros: "Good, current entertainment selection. Ample beverages and foods (though nutrition concerns). Pleasant crew."
Cons: "80+ year old disabled person placed in aisle seat next to me (middle). She was sweet and thoughtful, but couldn't even rise from her seat without assistance. This pinned the window passenger and me in our seats for 8.5 hours with only one bathroom break -- the stuff out of nightmares and ABSOLUTELY UNFORGIVABLE! Of course, crew would not accommodate any changes. ** Why should I ever choose BA again? ** (Seriously, I'd like to hear your answer.) Food nutrition -- generally tasty, but carb-heavy, fatty and salty. A de facto salad meal option would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Daeparture was delayed by more than 2hours due to some technical issue"
Cons: "Quick boarding"
Pros: "Good hospitality"
Cons: "As to drinks like juices etc there is no suffecient supply"
Pros: "I love the bins by the side of the Airbus, and for an economy seat there was a good amount of leg room."
Pros: "The entertainment on the plane was plentiful. The overall comfort was superb. The staff was very kind."
Cons: "Everything was pretty enjoyable, however, the food really needs to step up. The food at business class lounge and on the plane were below average comparatively to other airlines and their business class offerings."
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Absolutely no free snacks other than tap water (!) Food supplies for purchase ran out of sandwiches and sparkling water by the time they reached my row."
Pros: "Flight crew were great"
Cons: "No room in the seats. I'm not heavy and was almost unable to move."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable... that's about it"
Cons: "Firstly at check in the BA staff could have mentioned the gate was miles away and there's a second passport control to get through... I have a 82 year old dad I was helping navigate around the airport. Secondly on the flight out and back they ran out of the M+S food they so proudly advertise in the menu on board... you have to pay for it which is fine... but I would have liked to have bought some! So the few people higher up in the rows had the opportunity... row 15 and lower didn't..."
Pros: "I loved the hot towel svc, the food and beverage svc. Flight attendants very attentive."
Pros: "The customer service representatives are very apologetic and helpful."
Cons: "Lack of punctuality. For any flight through British Airways, do not expect to be on time. Both flights were delayed; significantly so that the group I was with ended up missing the connecting flight (that shockingly left on time)"
Pros: "The flight crew worked really hard on this flight and it seemed like they had very few breaks or down time. The entertainment was great, it made my flight seem shorter than it really was."
Cons: "The only issue I had was having to check my bag. I didn't feel it was necessary."
Pros: "checking in was endless. boarding was fine. seat was tiny and uncomfortable. food and drink were ok. all in all pretty ordinary."
Cons: "very slow check in. very close together seats with little legroom. film was good. meals not memorable. staff polite."
Pros: "Very full flight but all went efficiently and smoothly. Staff excellent as usual."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of."
Pros: "The food was elevated and we were fed twice on our 9 hour flight! The beverage service was also provided often with a good assortment. I loved that there were new release movies available for free. The staff was friendly and available. If I were to do another long flight like that, I would seek out British Airways."
Cons: "Long delay on a intention flight"
Pros: "Fantastic service and entertainment. One of my best flights in years."
Cons: "1st service was good. Second just ok."
Pros: "Entertainment selection."
Cons: "The air was stale. No circulation. It made me sick."
Cons: "Paying for a soda!"
Pros: "Everything that BA is not; excellent crew & food"
Pros: "Flight was great really. I appreciated that a vegetarian option was standard since I could not choose a meal - especially since i got on flight through standby. All BA personnel on ground and on plane super nice."
Cons: "Only thing was that I was in a front row and that I could not finish my movie - worse problems to have."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours!"
Pros: "same service from AA"
Pros: "This is how a flight sould be lots of leg room the seat went back ,the flight was from Heathrow unlike other airlines that fly from the worst airport I have ever been to that's Luton"
